Question
Thank you Sister T for your very fine answer to the question about Jehovah's Witnesses conventions. You are a remarkable sister and I'm sure your church is very proud of you. keep up the good work.

Answer
Hello and thank you for writing,

You are very welcome, I'm very glad that I could be of help to you.  Thank you for your kind words.  Jehovah the sovereign of the Universe is an amazing, wonderful, loving, just, and merciful God.  The Bible tells us that God IS love, (1 John 4:8 "Whoever does not love has not come to know God, because God is love.").  Imagine yourself and how much you love your family, how you work hard so that they have the necessities of life.  Most parents would give their very lives for their families, or go without so that their children can have.  Think of that love you feel.  It's great and it's heartfelt.  The Bible says God IS Love!  He is perfect and holy.  How much more deeper and amazing is that compared to us.  Really think of that.  He's the very epitome of love.  To experience his love and having a relationship with God is a joy beyond compare.   

1 John 4:16-19   "And we have come to know and believe the love that God has for us.  God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in union with God and God remains in union with him. 17 In this way love has been made perfect in us, so that we may have freeness of speech in the day of judgment, because just as that one is, so are we ourselves in this world. 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts fear out, because fear restrains us. Indeed, the one who is fearful has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love, because he first loved us."

James 4:8 "Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you......."

I really hope that you and your family will be able to attend the Convention this weekend.  And if you want to continue to learn about all the wonderful blessings that Jehovah has in store for ones who want to know and learn about him, why not have a free Bible study?  You can ask an attendant at the convention.  Or you can fill out this form and someone will contact you to set up a time and place that is convenient for you.

There is tremendous happiness in worshipping Jehovah God and being a footstep follower of his beloved son Jesus.  Jehovah gives joy and peace, a joy that no one can take from you, no doubt we all have problems and go through hard times, especially living in the last days, not to mention Satan's attempts to stop anyone who wants to serve Jehovah, but gaining that joy that only God can give is priceless!  Jehovah wants us to be happy because he is the happy God!  (1 Timothy 1:11 "according to the glorious good news of the happy God, with which I was entrusted")   Please, make it a matter of prayer to Jehovah the Almighty God!

Phil 4:6,7 "Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus."


Take Care,

I can answer questions related to Jehovah's Witnesses and the Bible. I love learning the truth from the Bible and helping others to learn that truth as well. I don't know everything but will answer from the Bible, I like to use illustrations as well to help a person relate to what is being said. The Bible has the last say so over any person.

Experience

I am an active baptized Jehovah's Witness and Jehovah is Almighty God,(Ps. 83:18) and his Son Jesus Christ died so that everyone exercising faith in him may not be destroyed but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). I support my fellow Witnesses on this board who are real, and Jehovah's worldwide visible organization, including the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. As God is not a God of disorder, and there could not be order if there were not ones to take the lead. Taking the lead and having a leader is not the same, our leader is Jesus Christ, and in order to have unity and order, there has to be arrangements in place. As the first century Christians had, there were men taking the lead, (Acts 6:1-6) as with Moses, (Exodus 18:21) and in our day, in following with Bible truths, we do the same. When people twist that around to us worshiping men, it is just a straight out lie! Why would the Scripture at 1 Tim. 3:1-10, 12, 13 give the criteria for men reaching out for an office of overseer if that was not meant to be? (Phil 1:1, Acts 20:17, 28, Eph. 4:11, 12, 2 Cor. 3:4-6). If we were not supposed to have men who take the lead, why was this scripture penned? James 5:14-15 "Is there anyone sick among YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15 And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him."

Organizations
If you have legit questions and want to know the truth, please ask, but if you are here to spread your lies and twists of the scriptures or get your falsehoods out, you may get rejected! The truth is from the Bible, if what you say does not harmonize with the Bible then what you say is wrong! Context and other scriptures help determine scriptures that may stump us, let scripture interpret scripture. The Bible does not contradict itself, so if what you are being taught or if what you are teaching makes it seem like the Bible is contradictory, remember it's not the Bible it's the man-made teaching! Doctrines of men! Mark 7:6, 7 "He said to them: “Isaiah aptly prophesied about YOU hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This people honor me with [their] lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 7 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men." (also Romans 10:2, 3)

Education/Credentials
Matthew 24:14 says "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come." We are doing that today, we are living in times of Bible Prophecy and as a Jehovah's Witness, we have the privilege to be apart of a prophecy spoken by Jesus himself! The good news of the Kingdom. Ask yourself, what kingdom? then read Daniel 2:44! It's a real government. Take heed now! Listening to men over God will mean your life.(Prov 3:5,6, Ps. 146:3) A lie will never become truth, No matter how long or how many people say it or speak it. Learn what the Bible really teaches, seek out Jehovah's ways, serving God in truth is only acceptable to him,(John 4:23, 24) you can not be serving God acceptably if what you believe is a lie! Pray for understanding and ask Jehovah to search your heart and draw you! (John 6:44, 65) Now is the time to be with the people who are called by Jehovah's name! (Acts 15:14, 17, Isa. 43:7, 10, Zech 8:23)
