18013  partakers .........2836 more than last year

 

Will it be the final gathering before the Great Tribulation in preparation for the war of Armageddon?

 

Or is there a lot of excited or amped people? :blink:

 

I think only Jehovah can answer this question.

Isa 60:22 The little one will become a thousand And the small one a mighty nation. I myself, Jehovah, will speed it up in its own time.”

Maybe that's the little one and jehovah speeds its up now?

If the number will be over 144,000 next year something is wrong.

It must be remembered that there must be enough experienced anointed in heaven to judge the entire living population before Armageddon. For Someone from the first century is hard to get into the living conditions of our time (sorry for my bad english, I hope you understand )

Going a little further, this year's yearbook tells the story of which country (or countries)?

I would like to have a morning worship at JW Broadcasting with a member of the Governing Body talking about it.

In case we have to have a few more weeks wait for the yearbook, it would be nice to get second, independent confirmation of this new number of partakers ASAP

If you think the anointed who lived in the first century might find it hard to judge our technology driven generation, you should have a rethink brother David. The human condition has not changed much. The temptations we experience are the same old temptations appearing in a different light. And they will judge according to what a person is in his heart. 

You should appreciate the fact that all the anointed, whether of the first century or our present time, have maintained their faithfulness to Jehovah despite their imperfections while on earth. That's what counts most to make them experienced judges.

Maybe you're right, it was just a thought. But I think the time of the end is very different from any other time period. Pressure of time and to perform, depression, internet and pornography during childhood, single-parenting mothers and so on. These things are difficult to compare with other things at other times. For Jesus, it also played a role that he had made experience in certain things (Hebrews 4:15).

Wow, that would be great! Are there any indications?

 

And about Vietnam: If you go on jw.org to the search for congregations you will see the congregations in Vietnam.

A very encouraging report! Thank you very much, sister Samira!

 

We had an increase in the number of publishers of 120,742 compared to last year, or 330 publishers per day. 

This means an increase of approximately 1.47%
