How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    Third Generation Witness - so Jehovah has been part of my life forever and I hope forever will mean just that. Was hoping my children would be the fourth generation, but at the moment that hope looks bleak.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I have many interests apart from spiritual interests which of course are my foremost. I am a foodie - love cooking (baking is okay but more cooking) - love writing short stories and reading ... I play the piano and draw portraits. I also love
    doing sign language. (NZSL).

    I love people in general, but mostly I love my brothers and sisters.
  • My favorite books
    The Bible is a given - otherwise I wouldn't be here but some secular books I enjoy - is the simple 'Lorax' by Dr. Seuss - (I have to think more about this one - don't have a lot of time to read secular literature).
  • My favorite music
    I love a wee bit of everything. Love the Beatles music but not their singing (I know that creates controversy), easy listening, SOME country - like "The Impossible" by Joe Nicols - songs that tell stories I think.
  • My favorite quotes
    See from the inside out, not from the outside in.

    (Sometimes it's hard to see people as Jehovah sees them but I do try).

    Johnny Standley would agree with you ... he caught onto that nursery rhyme too.

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    Yeah Greg about 150 km East of New Caledonia ... there ARE some tsunami warnings for Vanuatu and Fiji. Interestingly there's also a cyclone/hurricane developing in exactly the same area.

    Biblical finds

    Actually this was also brought out in the documentary "Patterns of Evidence - Exodus" - By Tim Mahoney, The archealogists - at least some of them - when faced with evidence of the Exodus were asked why don't they write about these findings ... they blatantly said: They would have to rewrite everything they've written. It's pride stopping the publishing of many aspects of evidence proving the bible to be true. There are also of course, those who either don't want to see or can't see the truth. That documentary and the book that goes along with it in Amazon goes hand in hand with your findings ... I am certain that Psalms 83:18 is going to be proven in a very tangible way even before the outbreak of the GT.

    Post a picture... Any picture

    Aaah thought I was missing a punchline - thanks ... I'll stick with the fruit ... but yup get it now.
  8. Go down to paragraph 19 ... the greater fulfillment is the following: "Each one must choose. You see, new scrolls will be opened during that time. So the refreshing waters from Jehovah will include newly revealed truths, new spiritual instructions. Is it not thrilling to think of that prospect? Nonetheless, some will refuse that blessing, choosing instead to disobey Jehovah. Some individuals may rebel during the Millennium, but they will not be allowed to disrupt Paradise. (Isa. 65:20) We may be reminded of Ezekiel’s vision and think of those marshy places that remained barren, “abandoned to salt.” How foolish are those who stubbornly refuse to drink from the precious water of life! After the Millennium, a group of rebels will side with Satan. All who reject Jehovah’s righteous rule will face the same end: eternal death.—Rev. 20:7-12" So it shows that the time after the opening of the new scrolls, the marshy places will remain barren, to those who choose not to side with Jehovah ... they stubbornly refuse ... will some become unstubborn? It doesn't say. It does say that a. they will not be allowed to disrupt peace ... and b. these will become part of the group identified as Gog of Magog in the final test - see Chapters 21 and 22 for clarification. It's like reading an exciting novel isn't it?
  9. It's the bit you missed out I find most interesting - "Not all would accept Jehovah's blessings , nor would all be healed" If they aren't healed then it's possible (speculation of course) that these ones won't retain youth ... and continue to grow old until they either die ? or accept or reject Jehovah? Therefore - they would be classed as the undecided (even if a different term is used) until they either accept or reject Jehovah's way. Some may take a while to come to that conclusion.
  10. Don't like reading it in bits - will wait for launch day and buy the book as I always do. Looks as amazing as the last ones. As far as "Undecided" People go. Have a read of the following information and tell me what you think? True Worship has Been Restored - Chapt 19 - Paragraph 6b The angel stated: “Everything will live wherever the stream goes.” Does that mean, though, that the water from Jehovah’s house reached every part of the Dead Sea? No. The angel explained that some marshy regions remained beyond the reach of the life-giving waters. Those places were “abandoned to salt.” (Ezek. 47:8-11) So the prophetic picture conveyed a reassuring promise that pure worship would revive the people, causing them to thrive. But a warning note was also sounded: Not all would accept Jehovah’s blessings; nor would all be healed

      Was a beach walk day with Cleo forgot to put her back on her leash in the summer zone where she is meant to be leashed from December 1.

      Aaaah didn't realize there's a summer leash law. Heard there's some exciting changes for your Kingdom Hall Richard - I hope everything goes smoothly for all involved.

    Loose weight

    The vitamins people who have diabetes type II lack are the following: The B Vitamins Magnesium Selinium VITAMIN D Potassium Vit C. Liquid Chlorophyll contains: Magnesium, Potassium, iron and Vitamin B Vitamin D ... Diabetes is rampant in countries above and below the equator - why? Because our intake of Sunlight is not adequate. Interestingly Vitamin D acts like a hormone, and can balance the body - it needs a good source of fat to be absorbed - it's rampant in raw milk. Selinium - your whole days intake of selinium is in ONE brazil nut. I agree with Sister Susanna, stop eating food that is posing as food if you want your body to be in balance. Eat what Jehovah would have purposed us to eat. Be careful of the intake of Vitamin C ... while you can't overdose on Vitamin C your body will pass what it doesn't need, it's often not absorbed because of either eating it .. as in hot lemon and honey drinks ... heat kills Vitamin C ... or its not from a fresh source - also if you have vitamin C and have caffeine 1/2 hour either side of ingesting it - the caffeine will neutralize your Vitamin C before the body has a chance to absorb it. I'm just trailling Fulvic Acid - from a NZ source, it's from a seam found in NZ's south Island that has been untouched by man. Not sure if its working yet. Just wanted to add about Diabetes II - this is an inflammation condition caused by hormone imbalance. It can be reversed with good diet as can many other 'ills' of the western world ... processed sugar causes inflammation.

    Twice-cooked food

    And too, when you marinate anything that is technically twice cooking ... as the marinade 'cooks' initially. The other thng that comes to mind is biscotti ... which quite literally means 'twice cooked'. Most of our twice cooked foods are too, potatoes, ie: Twice or even thrice cooked chips or french fries. Pastry is often cooked twice too, with a blind baking first. I make bacon soup ... by first cooking bacon bones, then re-cooking the meat with the veges and lentils - same as curry - browning the meat first then re-adding it later to the curry sauce I've made.
