Yesterday's watchtower study article encouraged all of us to include the worldwide brotherhood in our prayers. Brothers and sisters, from what I read at JW.org which is quoted below, our brothers and sisters in Russia need to be in our prayers as the landmark decision is reached by the court on January 16, 2017.

Quote

It could liquidate the Administrative Center and further harass the religious communities of Jehovah’s Witnesses and restrict their worship throughout Russia. If, on the other hand, the court upholds the appeal, it would be a breakthrough for justice.”

Whichever way the decision goes, we'll never give Satan and his system any cause to gloat over us. May Jehovah be with our brothers and sisters in Russia.

"The Moscow City Court has scheduled an appeal hearing in which Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia will challenge the legality of the warning issued to their Administrative Center. On January 16, 2017, at 11:10 a.m., Moscow Standard Time, the court will hear the appeal and will likely hand down its ruling that same day."   ...   “Either way, this ruling may prove significant. If the Moscow City Court dismisses the appeal, the Prosecutor General’s Office could act on its threat against the Administrative Center. It could liquidate the Administrative Center and further harass the religious communities of Jehovah’s Witnesses and restrict their worship throughout Russia. If, on the other hand, the court upholds the appeal, it would be a breakthrough for justice.”

 ...   "The three-judge panel rejected all arguments filed by the Witnesses’ attorneys   ...  However, it is still unclear what implications the warning will have on the Witnesses’ religious freedom in Russia."   :confused:
