  1. Thank you John I have it already sorted and up to date
  2. thank you I thought i was going silly there for a minute as I had been having problems and when I asked on Sunday about the 2016 I was told they are not doing one. Thank you for your help I really appreciate it
  3. Is this only in some countries??
  4. Do you have a 2016 dvd? I was under the impression that they are not doing the 2016 dvd, that they are just doing updates for the 2015 dvd which I have installed as I got it last year. I applied the updates and it says it is all up to date. But I have no daily text
  5. This is one of my favourite videos on JW Broadcasting. What an amazing brother, his strong faith for Jehovah is truly inspiring!! If you have not seen it, I encourage you to as it as very upbuilding.
  6. I have updated my copy of the WTLibrary using the update, is that what you meant by that statement. Just wondering. I use both the online and the WTLibrary installed on my pc but the only thing that I am disappointed with is that the daily text does not come up on the installed WTLibrary anymore. I am the only one with this problem?
  7. Jesus knew what his purpose was on the earth was to preach and that he would have to die a sacrificial death. So in order to keep his mind on the more important things and honour his father Jehovah he refused to be distracted. Great counsel for us all to take on so the we to do not become distracted as the end grows ever closer.
  8. Even though we worry about our brothers and sisters in Russia and other countries all around the earth, we have to remember to that for the end to come forms of prosecution have to happen. We know that All the nations of the earth will align themselves against us at the time of the end because we are Jehovah's people. We can see this happening everywhere, some places more so than others. This is why we need to keep our faith strong and rely on Jehovah. Psalms 118:6 Jehovah is on my side, I shall not fear. Jehovah is ready for any trail that we/his people have to go through. And he is equal to any situation that may confront them/us too! I love this paragraph from the w07 12/15 pp. 16-20 “Stand Firm and See the Salvation of Jehovah” 6. In view of impending events, what will we consider? 6 Are we prepared for those momentous events? Do we have faith in Jehovah’s saving power? Are we confident that he will come to our aid at the right time and in the best way? In answering such personal questions, we can keep in mind what the apostle Paul told his fellow Christians in Rome: “All the things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4) Among the things written for our instruction, giving us comfort and hope, is the record of the occasion when Jehovah delivered the Israelites from the iron grip of their Egyptian oppressors. A close examination of those exciting events when Jehovah maneuvered the salvation of the sons of Israel should be of great encouragement to us as we look forward to the fast-approaching great tribulation. The nations have tried to wipe us out before, yet this has only made us stronger and Jehovah has always triumphed saving his people and they have never succeeded!!
  9. I was thinking after I posted about something I had known but not really thought to deeply about it. Being able to enjoy religious freedom like Sister Svetlana said means that she and many other brothers and sisters would have access to All of publications that have been brought out. Its hard to imagine not having the ability to read the magazines, the workbook, etc... to prepare for the meetings and become spiritually encouraged. But the I remembered the Sunday morning convention from last year, the one that showed the brothers and sisters going through the tribulation. How they still met and encouraged one another. I know myself, I had goosebumps everywhere from that symposium. Jehovah is already preparing us for the great tribulation. For never before have we had anything like those videos shown in the symposium. However, I did notice one thing, not sure if it stood out to others as well. The brothers and sisters only had a hard copy of their bibles! No electronic tables, no magazines, no other books, only their bibles. They encouraged each other through experiences to keep one another strong and help those in their groups faith to be upheld. The videos where so encouraging. I hope one day sister Svetlana to hear about your experiences I am sure they are so faith strengthen, and may Jehovah continue to watch over you and all our other dear brother and sisters around the world. As it doesn't matter where we are we all suffer trails.
  10. Sister Svetlana, after reading through all the posts, I wanted to write and tell you that I feel for you and what you and others must be going through at this time. It must be very hard for you and many other brothers and sisters to be unsure of what awaits them. However, I wanted to try and encourage everyone with a scripture especially you as you seem really down at the moment. The scripture that came to mind when reading the posts is Romans 8:38&39; "For I am convinced that neither death nor life nor angels nor governments nor things now here nor things to come nor powers nor height nor depth nor any other creation will be able to separate us from God’s love that is in Christ Jesus our Lord". The reason this scripture came to mind is not only is it one of my most favourites, but it was also used by a brother in the Be Loyal, As Jesus Was video on JW Broastcasting. https://tv.jw.org/#en/video/VODBible/pub-jwbcov_201605_2_VIDEO The brother in the video went through so much in his lifetime, more than some of us can ever imagine. I am not sure if everyone has seen the beautiful and heartfelt example the brother displayed, so I will not spoil it for anyone. Moreover, this compelling faith strengthening video also made me think of the brothers and sisters in Russia also and that is why I wanted to highlight it. There was a couple of things I initially thought stood out in the video, but after I watched it a few more times and again just now I found a few more. I will not highlight them all just the ones that really stuck out. We have to love Jehovah first, before and more than anything else. We ourselves need to be Convinced that it doesn't matter what satan throws at us, no one can separate us from JEHOVAH'S LOVE!! The theme music behind the tune see if you can recognise it and read through the lyrics, again. I am not going to spoil which song it is. But the words are so true and purposeful with a good reminder of what Jehovah has done for us through is love. All of Jehovah's servants around the world are going through something that satans throwing at us, it doesn't matter how big or small. We also all experience things at a differently too, as last months Watchtower studies brought out, however, daily bible reading, prayer and trust in Jehovah and keeping our Faith strong and firm is what will get us through in the at this time of the end. Lastly, with much love, be convinced as Romans 8:38&39 really convinced that it doesn't matter what satan throws at us, be it death, life, government, nor things now, nor thing yet to come, nor anyone can separate us from JEHOVAH'S LOVE!! Really know deep in our hearts beyond any doubt that Jehovah can and will deliver us from anything we are going through currently, or are starting to go through. Not matter what our situation is, where we live nor any other factors. I hope you all enjoy the video in the link as much as I did.
  11. Brother Lett is so animated, such a wonderful speaker.
  12. When those Jesus resurrected were brought back to life, the bible has spoken about their family members being there to welcome them back, which shows just how loving Jehovah is and how much thought he is put into the resurrection. We will have to wait and see just how Jehovah intends to carry out the order in which those to be resurrected are brought back. HOWEVER, one thing is for sure as we are servants of Jehovah, we are one huge united family. In the video's and the publications the FDS has always pointed towards Jehovah resurrecting the ones we have lost through death near the family members. My grandmother who served Jehovah until the day she past, always said that even though she had moved countries she had such strong faith in Jehovah, that he could reunited her with the daughter she lost in sleep even in another country. She would say that, "Jehovah is a God of Love, so why would he back her daughter in a country where she would have no family now." I tend to agree with this point. For the last few years the FDS have showed us through videos at our conventions our loved ones bring greeted back by those they love. Remember the 3 conventions ago (that had almost everyone crying) of the family that lost a loved one, later in that video you saw them welcome the sister back. Did Our Languages Come From the “Tower of Babel” w13 9/1 p. 11 The Bible account says that at Babel, God acted to “confuse their language that they may not listen to [“understand,” footnote] one another’s language.” (Genesis 11:7) As a result, the workers “left off building the city” of Babel and were scattered “over all the surface of the earth.” The bible describes the sudden appearance of several apparently fully developed new languages, each capable of expressing the range of human feeling and thought and each different and distinct from the others. So as shown, Jehovah in the past was able to confuse the language into many different FULL languages, each different and distinct from the others. On that thought , then how much more simpler/easier would it be for Jehovah to let us all one morning wake up speaking a new language. Maybe we will all wake up speaking and understanding a completely new language, a truly united loving language of 'unity' a'pure language'.
  13. Awww, makes my heart swell with joy to see one so young enrolling in the bible school. I remember my sons first bible reading, I don't know who was more nervous him or me. I had the following talk after his. However, I was so nervous for him I had the shakes and tears in my eyes. I couldn't wait to give him a huge hug. But did tell him how proud I was of him and his effort he made, and how he had made Jehovah proud too! Please tell your son that he gave a lovely bible reading, it gave me such a huge smile to watch his first talk, Thank you very much for sharing this with us.
