Positive energy surrounds you. Look for some unconscious or hidden movement to turn on the lights when you least expect it. You've unknowingly fallen in step with a universal power and you probably feel better than you have in a long time. Remember the steps you took to feel better, so you can repeat them at will. Spend quiet moments being thankful for your good fortune.(John 18: 12-37)

Two weeks ago, fairly early in the morning, I answered the door to find Jehovah’s Witnesses there. Before I could tell them politely that I wasn’t interested, they too said something about the end of days. I guess the two ladies, sensing that the window of opportunity was closing, wanted to get the main point across in a hurry. My limited experience with Jehovah’s Witnesses is that they always think the end is near, but it strikes me as strange that a Christian group would abscond with the prophecies of practitioners of an ancient, pagan religion.

I guess it’s just like a song. The Jehovah’s Witnesses recognized a good hook.

Nice to see the public actually speaking what they all see.
Jehovah's witnesses fool nobody with their extreme rudeness!
They DO "celebrate" Christmas in every way, but letting children share in the magic of Christmas.

Adult Jehovah's witnesses take all their holiday pay, paid days off, and any presents GIVEN to them
They also eat DRINK heavily and be merry, only with other Jehovah's witnesses.

They are hypocrites and the public knows it.

Yes, TAMP that is why you live with a woman that you hate, when you are gay, why you are ignorant and never bothered to get an even basic education, and live in misery.
Because some imaginary fairy "jehovah" is going to violently murder the billions you hate and are jealous of any day now, then you will walk over their corpses to live in the magical fairyland of the "New System" where ONLY the living dead AND Jehovah's Witnesses gain admission!!
Because THAT makes sense!
Sure.

There are hypocrites in every religion, it is only the loyal and obedient Jehovah's witness that will survive the end of this world, soon to be here.

Jehovah's witnesses don't care what you think of them, they are busy in their ministry to help the meek and humble, not you. Psalms 37:11 Matthew 28:19,20

A true Christian witness would not take a Christmas gift, it is your sin to offer them one or pursuade them to take one, just as Satan offered Eve the fruit.

Jehovah's Witnesses take " Christmas gifts " in the form of bonuses , cash and paid days off. Agreed though, Jehovah's Witnesses are NOT " True Christians.
They ARE hypocrites though

Have you been living beyond your means lately? Even the deepest pocket yields a fistful of lint if you dig too far down! Although it's difficult to cut down on spending at this time of the year, consider taking some frugal economic measures as soon as possible. Have a garage sale or donate your cast-offs to charity in favor of a tax deduction, but don't get rid of anything that has sentimental value. It's still possible for everyone to benefit at Christmas, even if they have no one to care for them.(Phil 5: 12-34)

Nothing is more treasured than what my children hand made for me in school when they were little.
I kept every single thing.
Something that Jehovah's witness children are denied to do.
why?
There is nothing in the Bible that states that making a decoration for your parent is a sin.

The entire world of mankind is being judged today, you will either be a true Christian follower of Jesus or not.
Those who are not will be removed from this planet forever, and those who make the choice to learn righteousness and live by the example of Jesus are being gathered and prepared for survival of the end of this world, soon to be here. Psalm 37:11

Almighty God Jehovah has a heavenly government or Kingdom that is established and ruling over his obedient children, these people are subjects of our reigning King Jesus, who is King of kings and Lord of lords over this planet Earth. Matthew 24:14

Very soon we will see the evidence of this heavenly Kingdoms (take over) control of this Earth, every entity of this world is in the control of Satan the Devil right now, and as the god of this world and all those who are deliberate sinners or his children will be destroyed at Armageddon.
Matthew 25:31-33

If you want to be among the survivors and inherit God's new world of righteousness, you must start your Bible education with Jehovah's witnesses, you cannot know, love or serve Almighty God Jehovah without his visible earthly organization or that direction from Jesus as our King.
Matthew 25:44,45

Show me in the bible where it says that only Jehovahs witnesses will survive the end of time. MY bible says that believers of Jesus will obtain eternal life, in many places.

Jehovahs witnesses do care what people think about them, don't lie like that.

Some Jehovahs witnesses do accept gifts given to them. If a person knows you do not celebrate and still gives you one, it would be of poor etiquette not to take it with sincere gratitude.Some people don't care they just want to show they care about you as a friend or work buddy. There is no sin in taking it, and showing you are grateful. There is no sin in giving a person a gift on any day of the year, but if you find it a sin to take it, then do not take it. Leave it up to the person who is given the gift to decide if they accept it or not. But I think it was be very rude to say, No thank you if they took the time to get it for you and hand it to you, especially if they know they were getting nothing in return. That is what shows true Christian love to people, giving without expecting something in return.

Cant you see how wrong this is? If you want to be among those who survive, its not coming to a religion or organization, its coming to JESUS CHRIST. To say that someone cannot know or serve Jehovah without a organization is pure stupidity. Please show me from the bible where it tells a person to come to a organization to have Jehovah or Jesus. This has been ask of many of you, and not one of you have been able to do it. You do not get to Jehovah or Jesus through any organization, or religion, but only through the Son of Jehovah, JESUS CHRIST.

Book of Revelations - End of time

Chapter 1 Verse 20

'Here is the secret meaning of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and the seven lamps of gold: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lamps are the seven churches.'

We are told there is a secret meaning in this verse..why?
It is an invitation to find out what it is, why else would it be mentioned

We are told it relates to the seven churches named in a previous verse
Ephesus,Smyrna,Pergamum,Thyati ra,Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea( verse 11)
Where are these churches?
In present day Turkey
So what is so special about these 7 churches
They were selected by Jesus out of many other possible locations for a reason
What was the reason?
They concealed the 'secret meaning' that we have to seek and find
When will we find it?
Logically when the 'secret meaning' is discovered and revealed it will be Revelation Time

But when will that be,soon?
Since the 'secret meaning' has now been discovered and will be published very soon this must be a time of Revelation
What is the secret meaning?
It relates to the geographical locations chosen by Jesus which form geometric alignments over great distances
and link to alignments of other sacred sites in the Holy Land and elsewhere
Is this just a spoof or joke?
No. It is not. The 'secret meaning' is a very old geometric design which Jesus and Mary of Magdala must have been aware of and if you are interested in a little more information there is a free fact sheet available on request by email to [email protected]

The seven congregations of the Book of Revelation pictures all the congregations of Jehovah's witnesses on this Earth, since 1914, when the last days started. The direction given to those congregations also applied to all true Christians since they were written in 96.
Revelation 1:7

Jehovah's witnesses are a family, united spiritually and unitedly fed spiritually Almighty God Jehovah's spiritual food for surviving the end of this unrighteous world. Matthew 4:4

Unless you are a member of this world wide spiritual family, doing Jehovah God's will under the direction of the head of this world wide united brotherhood, Jesus our reigning King in heaven, you have no share in the reward of surviving the end or inheriting the Earth.
Revelation 22:15 Psalm 37:11 Matthew 5:5

Now please show us one scripture where Jesus said we must be of one certain religion or organization. Also show me the word Governing body in the bible, or the word organization. Jesus is the only way for us to be saved.The bible says...

John 14:6
Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me

But by ME! He did not say but by a religion or organization.

John 3:18 “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

John 17:3 “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”

John 3:13-15 “No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”

Acts 4:12 “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

Acts 16:30b-31a “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied,“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9-11 “If you declare with your mouth,“Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

Not one of these scriptures say one word about a religion or an organization. They tell you how to get to saved an by who. Read them and see who is your savior, its not a religion or an organization. Please open your eyes and your heart to the real truth of the bible.

Focus on the moment -- life is every fleeting second, not the future or the past. It's one of those wonderful days when you can get away with just about anything, but remember: there's always a karmic scorecard! Life is busy and unpredictable, and no one is going to hold you responsible for any major mix-ups. Aquarians are intrinsically honest, so even if you're naughty, you'll put things right in the end!(Revelation 15: 12-49)

Colossians 1:18 . . .and he is the head of the body, the congregation.

(Ephesians 1:22, 23). . .He also subjected all things under his feet, and made him head over all things to the congregation,

The word congregation denotes united religious people gaining instruction, Jehovah's witnesses are organized in the Scriptural instruction to accomplish Almighty God Jehovah's will by preaching the good news that Jesus is King in heaven today.

The world wide congregation of Jehovah's witnesses is God's visible earthly organization, unitedly doing God's will. No other religion preaches the message, that unless you are a subject of God's heavenly Kingdom, you will die at Armageddon.

The hope the Bible gives people living in these last days is everlasting life, in God's new world of paradise. 2Peter3:13 Isaiah 65:17

In the new world of peace and happiness, there will be no sickness, suffering of any kind, no crime or drugs or tears or death.
This Earth will be restored to a paradise as Eden and the animals will be tame as then. Revelation 21:3,4

All wicked people and people who do not care to obey the direction of Jesus Christ as King today, will be gone forever at Armageddon. Matthew 25:33

Jehovah's witnesses are spending billions of hours in this world wide preaching work since 1914. Now is the time to start your Bible study with Jehovah's witnesses so you can be educated in the Truth of God and life.
John 17:3
Do not be misled, what you are sowing you will reap, time is running out for Satan the Devil, the ruler and god of this world...he is misleading everyone away from the one Truth and the one true God, Jehovah.
Revelation 12:9
