  1. I hope it's true, that they will let our brothers/sisters alone and let those in prison and detention go. But am not holding my breath, because I don't trust anything the King of the North does. This was said in Oct 2021, it's now almost the end of November. Unless they plan on doing it during their holidays (Christmas). Jehovah, is the only one that can release them. Release all of us from the bondage of this evil system.
  2. And for those who are not vaccinated and or have walking difficulties or other issues, can be on zoom. The announcement by Br. Splane, was terrific. My elders will be waiting from direction from the Branch in my neck of the woods. And too, local government rules. Covid is picking up again in my state. So we'll wait and see what happens in 2022 or beyond. But it was really great news!
  3. Good question starting this page. And good answer's. This came up last week with an individual I know who is now feeling overwhelmed who was told by other's in the congregation she goes to (zoom) that she needs to attend more of the meetings, get to know the congregation, and make more time for the ministry. And the co-workers, just keep them as co-workers, and not make them your security. The sister got mad and is now threatening to leave the truth. She burst out and told off her teacher (she was an inactive person, who came back last year) to stop pushing her. She thinks that the sister is pushing her to fast back into the ministry, wanting her to join in (just to meet more friends in congregation) in breakout rooms, And stop associating with co-workers, after work hours, where they go off together on cruises, and other trips. The sister has her co-worker friend and the co-workers husband comes along on these trips. They even share a room together with them. This just happened last month the trip. She has already planned a cruise with this couple. Anyway, I can understand where her teacher is coming from, and I support the teacher (sister that was assigned to help her catch up with the society because she had been out so long). I myself do not agree with association she has, because last month, before she left. I heard her co-worker buddy curse and cuss on the loud speaker on her phone. Then she (the sister) had the gall to tell me "sorry, but she always talks like this." Does this sound like "good association to you?" Anyway, I did some research, and I found this WT Study article from May 1, 2007. Please note the 3 paragraphs that I want to share with her but right now she is foaming at the mouth with anger. So I have to pick my time wisely. The article is called "A Lamp To My Foot What Bible counsel helps us to be balanced in our relationship with our workmates? However, there is a clear difference between being friendly toward a workmate and being that one’s close companion. Here is where another Scriptural principle enters the picture. The apostle Paul warned Christians: “Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers.” (2 Corinthians 6:14) What is the meaning of the phrase “do not become unevenly yoked”? Some Bible translations render those words “do not team up,” “do not try to work together as equals,” or “stop forming inappropriate relationships.” At what point does a relationship with a workmate become inappropriate? When does it cross the line and become an uneven yoking? God’s Word, the Bible, can direct your step in this situation. 10. (a) How did Jesus choose companions? (b) What questions can help a person to make good decisions about associations? 10 Consider the example of Jesus, who from creation onward had a love for humans. (Proverbs 8:31) While on earth, he forged a close bond with his followers. (John 13:1) He even “felt love” for a man who was religiously misguided. (Mark 10:17-22) But Jesus also set clear boundaries regarding his choice of close companions. He formed no close ties with people who were not sincerely interested in doing his Father’s will. On one occasion, Jesus stated: “You are my friends if you do what I am commanding you.” (John 15:14) True, you may get along well with a particular workmate. But ask yourself: ‘Is this person willing to do what Jesus commands? Does he or she want to learn about Jehovah, the one whom Jesus instructed us to worship? Does he or she have the same moral standards that I as a Christian have?’ (Matthew 4:10) As you talk with your workmates and insist on applying Bible standards, the answers to these questions will be evident. I think paragraph 10 answers the questions clearly. So far this is the best article I've found that would fit with her situation of association outside of work with the co-workers. But how do I get the point across that she won't get so angry and threaten to go back into the world?
  4. I heard that the microchips, are old and that the company's overseas that make them are making new one's for iPhone, Androids, apple, tablets, new vehicles with new computers in them, not the old computer chips that the American car companies are waiting for. The oversea places realized that they could make newer chips and sell them for a higher profit then making these old chips to be sent to USA and other countries where they are needed. Car manufacturing companies, in USA, should update their vehicles using the new technology that the overseas chip makers are doing now. The guy said that all those cars and trucks piled up in fields waiting for these chips to arrive. The company's are not willing to make old chips. And the prices have jumped through the roof.
  5. After reading the jw.org, News on what happened to the two brothers and two sister's their wives, only an ACT OF GOD, can bring about justice for them and the rest of God's people in all Russia, and other territories that hate the name of Jehovah our God, and the rest of this vile system controlled invisibly by his adversary and our enemy. Yes, indeed, Jehovah in his appointed time WILL TAKE CARE OF the King of the North and it's allies! Pray for all continually, pray for those couples, to stay focused and get the best comfort from our father, their father, our God their God. And what a unselfish act of courage for 300 of our brothers/sisters' showed up at the detention center to give support for those arrested and beaten to a pulp, and violated bodies.
  6. Here's a story on Daily Mail / Oct 1st 2021 on the delay for the upcoming Holidays. This was the title of the story. Cargo ships anchored off NY and LA face 4-WEEK wait to berth and trains in Chicago are backed up 25 miles with global supply chain on the brink of collapse: Americans face shortages of cars, shoes and exercise gear as holiday season looms
  7. This story came from CNN News/September 30, 2021 https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/29/business/supply-chain-workers/index.html Brings to mind this scripture found in Revelation chapter 6: verses 5 - 7/what is coming around the a very near corner. When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say: “Come!” And I saw, and look! a black horse, and the one seated on it had a pair of scales in his hand. I heard what sounded like a voice in the midst of the four living creatures say: “A quart* of wheat for a de·narʹi·us and three quarts of barley for a de·narʹi·us; and do not harm the olive oil and the wine.” When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say: “Come!” And I saw, and look! a pale horse, and the one seated on it had the name Death. And the Grave was closely following him. And authority was given them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with a long sword and with food shortage and with deadly plague and by the wild beasts of the earth.
  8. Hey Sheep, did you catch this one from President Biden giving his talk to U.N. this afternoon? NPR News/September 21, 2021 Biden Tells The U.N. The U.S. Is Embarking On An Era Of 'Relentless' Diplomacy Biden's approach is a departure from the Trump administration Biden said the U.S. "will lead on all of the greatest challenges of our time, from COVID to climate, peace and security, human dignity and human rights, but we will not go it alone." The approach is a departure from that of the Trump administration, which embraced an "America first"-style of diplomacy that put nationalism ahead of multilateral efforts
  9. Thank you for posting this video. Since this started I have been listening to (on you tube) this doctor named John Campbell. From March 2020 thru the beginning of summer 2020, he kept telling people (he is in U.K.) that Vitamin D could stave off COVID. He mention Vitamin D, and Zinc. to help build the up immunity in one's body. So this video is one of thousands on you tube or other channels that support the taking of Vitamin D3. It's a good vitamin to take before winter starts up, and the days get short and night comes quickly.
  10. This on NPR news/August 27, 2021 Talk about Ruining the earth! Environment Greenhouse Gas Levels Are The Highest Ever Seen — And That's Going Back 800,000 Years Scientists said the concentration of carbon dioxide, which contributes to climate change, is the highest in data going back 800,000 years, based on ice core records. NPR news August 27, 2021 Climate Climate Western Europe Can Expect More Heavy Rainfall And Fatal Floods As The Climate Warms August 27, 2021 • The World Weather Attribution initiative has issued a report that said July's historic flooding in Europe is more likely to happen today due to global warming
  11. This from Aljazeera News/August 17, 2021 Taliban says no one will use Afghan territory to launch attacks Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid says group won’t allow territory ‘to be used against anybody or any country’. Taliban says will respect women’s rights, press freedom
  12. The country has lost another war. Same thing happened in Saigon. Perhaps I made a mistake using word "game changer".
