Was very interesting to attend the Special Assembly yesterday "Let God's Will Take Place"
The final talk of the day was very good about I Thessalonians Chapter 5.
The brother from the Bethel in London mentioned that we can see that religion & politics are still entwined but as he said - The divorce papers appear
to have been drawn up!
Everyday we're hearing how religion is coming into conflict with politics - eg in the UK our news has been dominated the last few days by the Churches
condemning the UK government over their plans to legalise same sex marriage.
Headlines like the following are now a daily occurence -
Catholic Church Ready to Go to War with Obama
Only last week the Daily Mail newspaper reported lenders in the US foreclosing on a growing number of Church buildings. It's JUST like Revelation says
- "the waters are indeed drying up"
The American Atheists are now openly challenging Jehovah directly by trying to put up billboards containing the divine name of God in Hebrew -
Interestlingly in the Jewish & Muslim districts of Brooklyn New York.
"Jehovah - You know it's a myth .....and you have a choice" ......how disresepctful as well to call our heavenly creator an "IT"!!!
I was minded of Pharoah's taunting words to Moses recorded at Exodus 5:2 . . .
"Who is Jehovah, so that I should obey his voice to send Israel
away? I do not know Jehovah at all and, what is more, I am not going to send Israel away.”
And we all know what happened to him shortly
What was also made very clear in the final talk yesterday - is how near the Governing body are saying the "Cry of Peace & Security" from the nations
is .......and we should all be looking out for this very soon... whether it will be ONE outstanding declaration by the nations of the world of some
description or a NUMBER of outstanding declarations regarding peace & security...we shall just have to wait & see, unless matters will be revealed
some more beforehand.
It will be unexpected as well - like a theif in the night just as 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5 states -
(1 Thessalonians 5:1-6) . . .Now as for the times and the seasons, brothers, you need nothing to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know
quite well that Jehovah’s day is coming exactly as a thief in the night. 3 Whenever it is that they are saying: “Peace and security!” then
sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them just as the pang of distress upon a pregnant woman; and they will by no means escape. 4 But you
brothers, you are not in darkness, so that that day should overtake you as it would thieves, 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We
belong neither to night nor to darkness. 6 So, then, let us not sleep on as the rest do, but let us stay awake and keep our senses. . .
These aren't the words of the Watchtower Society - these prophetic verses are from the Bible, written thousands of years ago for our benefit......
Sure is exciting times watching this all unfold in front of our eyes after decades of Jehovah's people tirelessly trying their best to warn mankind.
