1 Kings 17:1717
And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him.

18 And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?

19 And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed.

20 And he cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?

21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again.

22 And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.

23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth.

24 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.

Acts 16:16
16 Now it happened that as we were going to the place of prayer, a servant girl with a spirit, a demon of divination,+ met us. She supplied her masters with much profit by fortune-telling.* 17 This girl kept following Paul and us and crying out with the words:“These men are slaves of the Most High God+ and are proclaiming to you the way of salvation.” 18 She kept doing this for many days. Finally Paul got tired of it and turned and said to the spirit:“I order you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And it came out that very hour.+
19 Well, when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone,+ they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the rulers.

Yeah, we get why you guys hate the JW's, Your late JW family members left everything to the world wide ministry work, because their children showed them nothing but hate.

Money is the root to all evil.
1 Tim. 6:10
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pieced themselves through with many sorrows.

2 Timothy 1:7
+ 7 For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice,+ but one of power+ and of love and of soundness of mind. 8 So do not become ashamed either of the witness about our Lord+ or of me, a prisoner for his sake, but take your part in suffering adversity+ for the good news by relying on the power of God.+ 9 He saved us and called us with a holy calling,+ not because of our works, but because of his own purpose and undeserved kindness.+ This was given to us in connection with Christ Jesus before times long ago, 10 but now it has been made clearly evident through the manifestation of our Savior, Christ Jesus,+ who has abolished death+ and has shed light on life+ and incorruption+ through the good news,+ 11 for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher.+ 12 This is why I am also suffering these things,+ but I am not ashamed.+ For I know the One whom I have believed, and I am confident that he is able to guard what I have laid up in trust with him until that day.+ 13 Keep holding to the standard* of wholesome* words+ that you heard from me with the faith and love that result from union with Christ Jesus. 14 Guard this fine trust by means of the holy spirit, which is dwelling in us.+

1 Timothy 6:12
+ 12 Fight the fine fight of the faith; get a firm hold on the everlasting life for which you were called and you offered the fine public declaration in front of many witnesses. 13 Before God, who preserves all things alive, and Christ Jesus, who as a witness made the fine public declaration before Pontius Pilate,+ I give you orders 14 to observe the commandment in a spotless and irreprehensible way until the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ,+ 15 which the happy and only Potentate will show in its own appointed times. He is the King of those who rule as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords,+ 16 the one alone having immortality,+ who dwells in unapproachable light,+ whom no man has seen or can see.+ To him be honor and eternal might. Amen.

Psalms 23:1
Jehovah is my Shepherd.+I will lack nothing.+
2 In grassy pastures he makes me lie down;
He leads me to well-watered resting-places.*+
3 He refreshes me.*+He leads me in the paths* of righteousness for the sake of his name.+4 Though I walk in the valley of deep shadow,+
I fear no harm,+For you are with me;+Your rod and your staff reassure me.* 5 You prepare a table for me before my enemies.+You refresh* my head with oil;+My cup is well-filled.+6 Surely goodness and loyal love will pursue me all the days of my life,+And I will dwell in the house of Jehovah for all my days.+
Psalms 23:1
1 (A Psalm of David.) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Matthew 1:18
18 But this is how the birth of Jesus Christ took place. During the time his mother Mary was promised in marriage to Joseph, she was found to be pregnant by holy spirit*+ before they were united. 19 However, because her husband Joseph was righteous and did not want to make her a public spectacle, he intended to divorce her secretly.+ 20 But after he had thought these things over, look! Jehovah’s* angel appeared to him in a dream, saying:“Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take your wife Mary home, for what has been conceived* in her is by holy spirit.+ 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus,*+ for he will save his people from their sins.”+ 22 All of this actually came about to fulfill what was spoken by Jehovah* through his prophet, saying: 23 “Look! The virgin will become pregnant and will give birth to a son, and they will name him Im·man&#8242;u·el,”+ which means, when translated,“With Us Is God.”+
24 Then Joseph woke up from his sleep and did as the angel of Jehovah* had directed him, and he took his wife home. 25 But he did not have sexual relations with her until she gave birth to a son,+ and he named him Jesus.+

Romans 10:2
2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God,+ but not according to accurate knowledge. 3 For because of not knowing the righteousness of God+ but seeking to establish their own,+ they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God.+ 4 For Christ is the end of the Law,+ so that everyone exercising faith may have righteousness.+

Romans 10:13
13 For “everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah* will be saved.”+ 14 However, how will they call on him if they have not put faith in him? How, in turn, will they put faith in him about whom they have not heard? How, in turn, will they hear without someone to preach? 15 How, in turn, will they preach unless they have been sent out?+ Just as it is written:“How beautiful are the feet of those who declare good news of good things!”+

Matthew 4:18-Disciples Called
18 Walking alongside the Sea of Gal&#8242;i•lee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter,+ and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen.+ 19 And he said to them:“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”+ 20 At once they abandoned their nets and followed him.+ 21 Going on from there, he saw two others who were brothers, James the son of Zeb&#8242;e•dee and his brother John.+ They were in the boat with Zeb&#8242;e•dee their father, mending their nets, and he called them.+ 22 At once they left the boat and their father and followed him.

Luke 9:1
Then he called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all the demons+ and to cure diseases.+ 2 And he sent them out to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal, 3 and he said to them:“Carry nothing for the trip, neither staff nor food pouch nor bread nor money;* neither have two garments.*+

John 9:38 38 And look! a man called out from the crowd, saying:“Teacher, I beg you to take a look at my son, because he is my only one.+ 39 And look! a spirit seizes him, and suddenly he cries out, and it throws him into convulsions with foaming at the mouth, and only with difficulty does it leave him after bruising him. 40 I begged your disciples to expel it, but they could not.” 41 In response Jesus said:“O faithless and twisted generation,+ how long must I continue with you and put up with you? Bring your son over here.”+ 42 But even as he was approaching, the demon hurled him to the ground and violently threw him into a convulsion. However, Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit and healed the boy and gave him back to his father. 43 And they were all astounded at the majestic power of God.

Luke 9:46
46 Then a dispute arose among them about which one of them was the greatest.+ 47 Jesus, knowing the reasoning of their hearts, took a young child, stood him beside him, 48 and said to them:“Whoever receives this young child on the basis of my name receives me also; and whoever receives me also receives the One who sent me.+ For the one who conducts himself as a lesser one among all of you is the one who is great.”+
49 In response John said:“Instructor, we saw someone expelling demons by using your name, and we tried to prevent him, because he is not following with us.”+ 50 But Jesus said to him:“Do not try to prevent him, for whoever is not against you is for you.”

Jonah 4:1 But this was highly displeasing to Jo&#8242;nah, and he became hot with anger. 2 So he prayed to Jehovah:“Ah, now, Jehovah, was this not my concern when I was in my own land? That is why I tried to flee to Tar&#8242;shish+ in the first place; for I knew that you are a compassionate* and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in loyal love,+ one who feels grieved over calamity.

Jonah 9:9
9 God asked Jo&#8242;nah:“Is it right for you to be so angry over the bottle-gourd plant?”+ At that he said:“I have a right to be angry, so angry that I want to die.” 10 But Jehovah said:“You felt sorry for the bottle-gourd plant, which you did not work for, nor did you make it grow; it grew in one night and perished in one night. 11 Should I not also feel sorry for Nin&#8242;e·veh the great city,+ in which there are more than 120,000 men who do not even know right from wrong,* as well as their many animals?”+

Jehovah.+ 17 “‘It is a lasting statute for your generations, in all your dwelling places: You must not eat any fat or any blood+ at all.’”

Leviticus 5:1 “‘If someone* sins because he has heard a public call to testify*+ and he is a witness or has seen or learned about it and he does not report it, then he will answer for his error.

Leviticus 7:26 26 “‘You must not eat any blood+ in any of your dwelling places, whether that of birds or that of animals. 27 Anyone* who eats any blood must be cut off*+ from his people.’” 28 Jehovah went on to speak to Moses, saying:

Leviticus 17:10 10 “‘If any man of the house of Israel or any foreigner who is residing in your midst eats any sort of blood,+ I will certainly set my face against the one* who is eating the blood, and I will cut him off* from among his people. 11 For the life* of the flesh is in the blood,+ and I myself have given it on the altar+ for you to make atonement for yourselves,* because it is the blood that makes atonement+ by means of the life* in it. 12 That is why I have said to the Israelites:“None* of you should eat blood, and no foreigner who is residing in your midst+ should eat blood.”+ 13 “‘If one of the Israelites or some foreigner who is residing in your midst is hunting and catches a wild animal or a bird that may be eaten, he must pour its blood out+ and cover it with dust. 14 For the life* of every sort of flesh is its blood, because the life* is in it. Consequently, I said to the Israelites:“You must not eat the blood of any sort of flesh because the life* of every sort of flesh is its blood. Anyone eating it will be cut off.”

They are her close relatives; it is an obscene act.* 18 “‘You must not take a woman in addition to her sister as a rival wife+ and have sexual relations with her while her sister is alive. 19 “‘You must not approach a woman during her menstrual impurity to have sexual relations with her.+ 20 “‘You must not have sexual intercourse with the wife of your fellow man,* making yourself unclean.+ 21 “‘You must not allow any of your offspring to be offered* to Mo&#8242;lech.+ You must not profane the name of your God in that way.+ I am Jehovah. 22 “‘You must not lie down with a male in the same way that you lie down with a woman.+ It is a detestable act. 23 “‘A man must not have sexual intercourse with an animal to become unclean by it; nor should a woman offer herself to an animal to have intercourse with it.+ It is a violation of what is natural. 24 “‘Do not make yourselves unclean by any of these things, for it is by all these things that the nations that I am driving out from before you have made themselves unclean.+ 25 Therefore, the land is unclean, and I will bring punishment on it for its error, and the land will vomit its inhabitants out.+ 26 But you yourselves must keep my statutes and my judicial decisions,+ and you must

Malachi 3:18
18 And you will again see the distinction between a righteous person and a wicked person,+ between one serving God and one not serving him.”

Ecclesiastes 1:4 4 A generation is going, and a generation is coming,
But the earth remains* forever.+ 5 The sun rises,* and the sun sets;
Then it hurries back* to the place where it rises again.+ 6 The wind goes south and circles around to the north; Round and round it continuously circles; the wind keeps making its rounds. 7 All the streams* flow into the sea, yet the sea is not full. To the place from which the streams flow, there they return so as to flow again.+

. 8 The one who practices sin originates with the Devil, because the Devil has been sinning from the beginning.*+ For this purpose the Son of God was made manifest, to break up* the works of the Devil.+

1 John3:12 12 not like Cain, who originated with the wicked one and slaughtered his brother.+ And for what reason did he slaughter him? Because his own works were wicked,+ but those of his brother were righteous.+ 13 Do not be surprised, brothers, that the world hates you.+ 14 We know that we have passed over from death to life,+ because we love the brothers.+ The one who does not love remains in death.+ 15 Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer,*+ and you know that no murderer has everlasting life remaining in him.
