Podcast #68

//Podcast #68

 

(Jan. 31, 2016) This program entertains questions regarding Noah’s Flood and how fresh water and salt water fish could have both survived the catastrophe. Also, how could the animals have migrated to various isolated islands? And, why does God allow the WT to stumble so many of Jehovah’s Witnesses and interested persons? Also, could 1st and 2nd century Christians have had the so-called earthly hope, since history tells us that there were many more than 144,000 Christians back then? Call-in questioner asks whether Satan was behind the mocking thief who was executed with Jesus? And more!

A wise person listens and takes in more instruction; a man of understanding acquires skillful direction to understand a proverb and a puzzling saying, the words of the wise and their riddles. – Proverbs 1:5-6

  • James

    Excellent podcast Robert.

  • Basavaraj Of North Karnataka

    How fresh water and salt water fish could have both survived the catastrophe has already been discussed in PODCAST# 20. Any one asking question please don’t simply disturb our brother Robert. Do simply make our brother to repeat the things.

  • e.v.g

    Dear brothers and sisters, I need some advice, I trust in your own good sense, I’m preparing for this catastrophe that is on the verge of becoming reality, I have been buying candles, battery lamps, containers for liquids for example gasoline and oil (petroleum), I also bought a 1000 liter tank for watter and a wood stove, I also need to store food and medicines, I don’t have much money so I’ve been buying this over time, did I forget something?
    any advice from you will be welcome.
    Jesus said:
    Let the man on the housetop not come down to take the goods out of his house, and let the man in the field not return to pick up his outer garment.
    But until that happens something is better than nothing, I’m taking this seriously, thankyou.

    • ewatchman

      My advice is don’t store flammables near any flames. lol

      • e.v.g

        I will take that advice too.

    • Merton

      I have a few bits and bobs. Candles, tins of food, bottles of water, matches, lighters, batteries (my advice is get one or two of those solar powered battery recharge things maybe you can use batteries as some sort of currency). But don’t go crazy. People will eventually run out of stuff and if they know you’ve got some, they will come knocking. I honestly don’t think i’ll even use the stuff i have but be distributing them to families in the street who may need a bit of help – surely the Christian thing to do. We’re not going to get through this having stockpiles to go to but purely on faith that Yahweh and Christ will help us. Seems like you’ve got enough already.

      • e.v.g

        I have a 5 year old boy, that’s my concern, when things will going bad, people will go crazy, probably someone throw me out from the house and take the things, I think too in those brothers and sisters with babies and little kids, but God has the last word.

        • ewatchman

          Joking aside, I have begun buying a few extra canned goods and package stuff like pasta and oatmeal. Just stocking up the pantry, not really hoarding.

          What responsible parent wouldn’t make preparations for potential calamities to protect their families to the extent they are able?

          As I have written, when this system goes it is going to be more-or-less overnight. The banks will just shut down. Credit cards and debit cards and check writing won’t work. Needless to say people will freak out.

          • e.v.g

            Thanks, we expect that others take the advice.

          • Jonah Peter Paul

            so true brother. You know we are very worried too. I keep on thinking if the rich and some of the elites won’t even survive how about us? The small stuff we have here that my mother inlaw has been mocking us for is not even gonna last a week I’m sure. Cause it will be them- the non believers, the hardcore JW relatives of ours who would loot us first. May Jah watch over us. It’s really frightening. Last night I dreamed about the four horsemen- dead bloody bodies on the streets… Lack of food, wicked people who would kill for food. Without Jehovah’s help and His angels, it is just impossible to survive. Nevertheless we should still do what we can to prepare for it, at least in that way God would see that we followed the advice found on on Psalms 27:12 “The shrewd person sees the danger and conceals himself,
            But the inexperienced keep right on going and suffer the consequences.” Our JW relatives can mock us all they can but when everything else fails overnight, they will see that the people they laughed at are the very ones who they can depend on during the roughest times.

            • Another thing people can do to prepare is store stuff in totes and home depot buckets with lids and hide them though the home and in the crawl space, because the hungry hoards will wipe out you pantry when the SHTF.
              Just a little tip I feel compelled to share. …….

            • Jonah Peter Paul

              Agree with you. That’s a actually a great advice and I’ve thought of it too. I just doubt that it would take long before they be able to turn this whole house upside down. We live in such a small house, in a crowded neighborhood, very 3rd world-ish so really we have to balance it well if stocking up a lot will save us or or will kill us when our panicked and hungry neighbors smell food. Seeing the news, even the mainstream media report of the things brother Robert has said more than a decade ago is really frightening but re-assuring as well. Maybe we can’t stockpile enough, maybe we will be looted by our hungry neighbors, maybe we will have to share our supply with our JW relatives who (are not really bad but rather blinded)… In any case, we just all have to trust that JEHOVAH WILL PROVIDE. Thanks for the advice. May we all see each other on the other side- Jehovah willing. If that ever happens, we will put a signboard on our home “E-WATCHMAN Readers Please Inquire Inside”. It would be nice to meet our fellow brothers and sisters, most especially since we have not had an encouraging discussion with any JWs since we left a few years ago. This website has been a better alternative for our small family to be strengthened and for all of us, servants of Jehovah to encourage and strengthen one another from time to time.

            • We will only need to store enough food for a few weeks, once Jehovah sees that we are serious about not taking the mark of the beast he will provide. Put all your trust in Jehovah and look for those glowing faces to give you directions and keep you safe.
              May Jehovah find favor in us all. And yes I think all of us broken souls will meet in the future and share stories, tears & hugs and become lasting friends for making it through the Tempest of Jehovah.

            • D34D 4L!3N

              Amen

          • Basavaraj Of North Karnataka

            When all you people are preparing for the catastrophe. Here in India
            not only JW but even the common people are not prepared and even if I tell this they just laugh at me and 99% are either least bothered or they are just ignorant. I don’t know what to do any advice for me from e-watchman or any others.

            • Jehovah said that No one would take note, we are only a extremely small group searching for the hidden treasures of truth. Don’t feel bad over here in the USA the alternative media is pushing storing up on gold and silver and weapons while the regular media is bombarding us with zombie apocalypse shows. So you can see its not going to end well. Bunch of pill popping Americans armed and dangerous, Jehovah willing hope some of us make it out alive.

        • D34D 4L!3N

          if you need to leave home and camp out

          backpak not to heavy with stuff

          couple lighters, a bar of soap, change of cloths, razors, fingernail clippers, a pen, comb, pocket knief,
          sleeping bag or blanket, fishing pole mite not fit in your backpack but u can carry hooks and fishing string and string weights little flashlight and extra batterys.

          really i know that crying to Jehovah helps and he will hear you. so the best to have with you is your prayers and faith.

          i wish i could say more but i really dont know but i know that Jehovah does know and he has put up with me for some time and he is always there no matter where i am.

      • e.v.g

        Thanks to all, i will bear these suggestions in mind, one of these days the mass media will report shocking news about warfare or economic collapse and this will not stop, to the point of having to rely on Jehovah, (if we live up to that point)

    • I think it is interesting to made the acquisition of objects independent of electricity; I have to buy a mill to make flour, there are some electric very beautiful and quite practical, but I think I am going to buy a manual model, because if the power runs out, I will be glad to be able to make my bread.

      There are also manual mixer, radios and crank lamps, etc.

      But I do not think we should be paranoid, I know that Jehovah will protect his servants. (But actually, Noah storing food in the ark … )

    • I wouldn’t go over board if I were you when the system crashes people will go crazy doing anything to take what is yours and you may find your self fleeing based on that alone. but no it does not hurt to have some things put aside in a time of emergency as specially if you have children. the only thing that will get us through these very difficult times to come is our faith and we must rely on jehovah for our daily needs.

      4 But he answered: “It is written: ‘Man must live, not on bread alone, but on every word that comes from Jehovah’s mouth. ’”Matthew 4:4

      • D34D 4L!3N

        Amen

      • Bklyn Kevin

        Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.

        Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust consumes, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Keep on, then, seeking first the Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you. So never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Each day has enough of its own troubles. Matthew 6:

        Psalm 83:18 Psalm 83:18
        18 May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah,You alone are the Most High over all the earth

        Luke 11:2-4
        2 So he said to them: “Whenever you pray, say: ‘Father, let your name be sanctified. Let your Kingdom come. Give us each day our bread according to our daily needs. And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is in debt to us; and do not bring us into temptation

        • D34D 4L!3N

          Matt 6:8
          Psalms 37:5

          2/3 billion dead is a lot and 5/6 alive is still a lot too

          naturally, obviously and responsibly we work on staying alive rather then working on dying. so focusing on our spiritual need is part of our balanced diet so that if we die we will still be alive again by our relationship with Jehovah

          • Bklyn Kevin

            Proverbs 29:25
            Trembling at men is a snare,
            But the one trusting in Jehovah will be protected.

            Psalm 18:2

            Jehovah is my crag and my stronghold and the One who rescues me. My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
            My shield and my horn of salvation, my secure refuge.

            Psalm 91:14
            God said: “Because he has affection for me, I will rescue him.
            ‘I will protect him because he knows my name”.

            And do not become fearful of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, fear him who can destroy both soul and body in Ge·henʹna. Two sparrows sell for a coin of small value, do they not? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s knowledge But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. So have no fear; you are worth more than many sparrows.Matthew 10:28-30

            • D34D 4L!3N

              those are good reminders Kevin. ty

    • D34D 4L!3N

      best advice -> stay away from people the best you can. that doesnt mean stop helping others but be extremely careful who you are around. thats from experience. stay away from people, they are the problem.

      • e.v.g

        Do not be misled. Bad associations spoil useful habits.
        Whoever guarantees a loan for a stranger is sure to fare badly, But whoever avoids shaking hands in a pledge will be secure.
        Something to always keep in mind.

        • D34D 4L!3N

          yes, even when your not looking for association, avoid people; avoid problems. for this system set limits and stick to them and keep room for Jehovah. Romans 3:10

          • e.v.g

            “I do not request that you take them out of the world, but that you watch over them because of the wicked one.
            Jesus is the best example of Godly devotion, but look what they did with the Son of God sooner or later the troubles shall come, because the god of this world it’s in control of most people.

  • honey,how are you

  • Bklyn Kevin

    22 because these are days for meting out [Divine] justice in order that all the things written may be fulfilled.
    For there will be great distress on the land and wrath against this people.

    24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled.

    26 People will become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

    27 And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

    28 But as these things start to occur, stand up straight and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is getting near

    34 “But pay attention to yourselves that your hearts never become weighed down with overeating and heavy drinking and anxieties of life, and suddenly that day be instantly upon you

    35 as a snare. For it will come upon “all” those dwelling on the face of the whole earth.

    36 Keep awake, then, all the time making supplication that you may succeed in escaping all these things that must occur and in standing before the Son of man.” Luke 21 Revelation 6:1-7.
    In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short. Matthew 24:22.
