  1. https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/101973052 Nothing produces nothing, but an intelligent careful design produces wonders, Jehovah's thoughts are higher than man's thoughts. I was ready to end my life, but Jehovah told me through his word that it would hurt my mother, and then I realized, it would be selfish. Jehovah proved that His thoughts were higher than mine. Jehovah has always been, he is and will always be, even Satan didn't dispute that, so of course Jehovah knows more than us. We will never understand Jehovah's ways completely, but what we CAN rely on, is listening to him is BEST for us. Look at Jehovah's son Jesus, he's a wonderful person, but he learnt all those things from Jehovah Almighty, Abba, Father. What was Satan (Lucifer) thinking? How could you beat a Harbinger who can see hundreds of thousands of years in the future at his own game. Jehovah has written a law, that he himself obeys, over billions of years, he's perfected his law, that he himself abides by. In His righteousness he defeated Satan, and will undo his works. He gave his son to nullify our inherited sin, so that people that come to Jehovah can enjoy a new Eden and others to rule over the Earth, but both promises are exceptional. Revelation 21:4. All tears will be wiped out.
  2. VisualizeUrParadise, why be silent when Jehovah has given you the gift of speech? Tell us what you're thinking. Romans 1:11, 12
  3. Food for thought, interesting Zack. https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/biblical-meaning-of-numbers/ The Bible’s answer Numbers in the Bible can often be taken literally, but they are sometimes used as symbols. The context usually indicates whether a particular number is used as a symbol. Consider these examples of the symbolic meaning of numbers in the Bible: 1 Unity. For instance, Jesus prayed to God that his followers “may all be one, just as you, Father, are in union with me and I am in union with you.”—John 17:21; Matthew 19:6. 2 In a legal setting, two witnesses verify the truth of a matter. (Deuteronomy 17:6) Similarly, the repetition of a vision or a statement confirms the matter as sure and true. For example, when Joseph interpreted a dream given to Pharaoh of Egypt, he said: “The fact that the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice means that the thing is firmly established on the part of the true God.” (Genesis 41:32) In prophecy, “two horns” can represent dual rulership, as the prophet Daniel was told regarding the Medo-Persian Empire.—Daniel 8:20, 21; Revelation 13:11. 3 Just as three witnesses would firmly prove a matter to be true, a threefold repetition seems to establish it firmly or emphasize it.—Ezekiel 21:27; Acts 10:9-16; Revelation 4:8; 8:13. 4 This can represent completeness in form or function, as in the expression “the four corners of the earth.”—Revelation 7:1; 21:16; Isaiah 11:12. 6 Being one less than seven, which often represents completeness, six can stand for something incomplete or imperfect or something associated with God’s enemies.—1 Chronicles 20:6; Daniel 3:1; Revelation 13:18. 7 This number is often used to represent the idea of completeness. For instance, the Israelites were commanded by God to march around Jericho on seven successive days and to march around seven times on the seventh day. (Joshua 6:15) The Bible contains many similar examples of such a use of the number seven. (Leviticus 4:6; 25:8; 26:18; Psalm 119:164; Revelation 1:20; 13:1; 17:10) When Jesus told Peter that he should forgive his brother “not, Up to seven times, but, Up to seventy-seven times,” the repetition of “seven” conveyed the thought of “without limit.”—Matthew 18:21, 22. 10 This number can stand for the entirety or aggregate of something.—Exodus 34:28; Luke 19:13; Revelation 2:10. 12 This number seems to represent a complete, divine arrangement. For example, the vision of heaven given to the apostle John included a city with “twelve foundation stones, and on them the twelve names of the twelve apostles.” (Revelation 21:14; Genesis 49:28) Multiples of 12 can have a similar meaning.—Revelation 4:4; 7:4-8. 40 Several judgment or punishment periods were linked with the number 40.—Genesis 7:4; Ezekiel 29:11, 12.
  4. Jehovah's glory is evident in daily things that we see, but we don't comprehend. Praise Jehovah for he's glorious ways. We don't love him because of his undeniable power and strength, but by his ways. He is soft and kind to those who love him. Jesus loves Jehovah's ways. Jehovah can handle pride, power and those things, but it corrupts men, but yet he is kind and humble. Jehovah showed us his closest Son, Jesus, and we see Jehovah through him. He never took honor for himself, instead, he directed it to Jehovah, because he can handle it, and we serve Jehovah not because we are forced, but by his undeserved love and kindness and loyal love.
  5. Yes, the "smart" are in denial. They think their ways are good and correct, but the miss the absolute fact that Jehovah has DESIGNED everything. We are absolutely accountable to our Creator, even those who are too stupid to believe in his existence.
  6. https://www.jw.org/en/library/magazines/w20131015/creation-reveals-living-god/ Maths made me believe without a doubt, he's creative works are fantastic! Scientists see the world as it is, without considering Jehovah, but if you spend enough time, you KNOW that it is impossible for life to have evolved. It's a joke, and can be proved mathematically incorrect.
  7. If anyone knows maths here, you'll understand 2 to the power of X. 2 ^ 0 = 1 2 ^ 1 = 2 2 ^ 2 = 4 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048. The distance of the moon to the Earth, the distance from the Sun to the Earth is 2 variables. The more variables you add that are needed for life to exist, you get to a point that it's not only impractical that life evolved, it's IMPOSSIBLE! Each variable you add doubles the combinations, until you get to a point that creation is undeniable, how does "evolution" know anything? It has no brain, no power, no intelligence. But even the smartest believe Satan's lies. One variable off and live could not exist, but Jehovah is PERFECT in his ways. The evidence of Jehovah is undeniable. Math taught me that there's a Creator, no doubt about it. Jehovah's Creation is undeniable, there is no room for error. Praise be to Jah, Jehovah for all his creative works! It stands as testimony to his Greatness! We await the "real life", not this corrupt joke of a system run by Satan, who is selfish and only cares about himself. Jehovah will undo his works, and we wait for that time, because it will be soon!
  8. Now is not the time for "play", it is the time for prayer, and asking Jehovah to strengthen us before the Great Tribulation starts. I can say this because Jehovah has revealed to all, that the great tribulation will be like NO OTHER TIME IN HISTORY. It will end in Lucifer and he's demons being sent to an prison in abyss. It will be an outstanding and terrifying time for people of the nations, but to true worshipers of Jehovah, it will be a time to raise your head, because your deliverance is near, the 144,000 will destroy Satan and his wicked system headed by Jesus Christ, and will usher in a new age of peace, then there's one more hickup, the end of the thousand year reign, then freedom for those that obey Jehovah. No more want, you will look in astonishment and will not see evil doers, you're promise forefilled by Jehovah Almightly, Ancient of Days, you will look for the wicked and they won't be there. Satan will be crushed in the head, allowing Jehovah the only REAL ruler to bless his people and then the "real life starts". You can leave your child with the serpents, and they will not bite, you can look for wickedness, but you will not see it. Jehovah will be with his people and help fix the Earth and show you how you must move, if to the left, or to the right, but it will not be tiresome, it will be a Paradise, the "real life". What a glorious day for all that serve Jehovah of Armies.
  9. Jehovah hears our prayers, so lets play for our brothers and sisters in Russia. Let's pray that the brothers/sisters have the strength to give a thorough witness before men, and authorities and kings. Jehovah isn't a weak God, with no power, he is the almighty, and he watches what you do. Do Jehovah's will and there is no surprise, Jehovah protects his own.

  11. MixLr is like Zoom, but audio only. Zoom has and is improving where you should be able to block someone's camera and if need block someone. There are whole books on Zoom security. I completely agree about the "Samsung J4". The brother's are trying here, but we still get the name of the phone here and there. I laughed so hard because one sister doesn't realize that her phone has two cameras, and the entire meeting her legs were showing instead of her face.
  12. Hi, you have to click Images, then it will show only images from JW.org.
  13. If the Zoom meeting ID and passwords are changed, how do they notify all the brothers every month? We do it here via Whatsapp.
  14. I believe Zoom has strict security features that allows you to whitelist certain people, block cameras, block profile pictures and banning users. If they want to have a "laugh", great, maybe after watching a few meetings they'll realize it's the truth. But you have to KNOW how to use the features, which the brothers here don't. The OVERSEER instructed our congregation to stop changing the password, so it must come from the governing body.
