Michael, this was a continuation of your post last month - I tried to keep it all in one thread  

 

(Mods, due to the extreme legal importance of this case, would you kindly merge these.)  ...

If I read the news correctly, the brothers failed. This is really sad to see. Our brothers need our prayers more than ever.

This is not the end. We have to wait for an official statement from the brothers on JW.org. I just finished watching the video, O Jehovah... I trust in you. Like Hezekiah, this is a period where the trust of our brothers and sisters in Jehovah will be put to the test. They have to be reassured that Jehovah will see them through their difficulties with the government. This is not the first time our work is being put under ban.

I'm sure its the orthodox church..... Russia considers themselves a christian nation....pretty sure....

Vern,

 

You are right brother. Russians consider themselves as Orthodox Christians. For example When Russian orthodox military services went to Georgia to bomb, Georgian and Russian orthodox soldiers  were shooting one another;  Georgian Orthodox church patriarch said that Orthodox Russians bomb Orthodox Georgians. (John 13:34,35). Awake 06.09 also mentioned about it:

“We are facing very serious peril [the political crisis in Georgia] . . . God is with us and [the] Virgin Mary is protecting [us], but one thing concerns us very deeply—that Orthodox Russians are bombing Orthodox Georgians.”—GEORGIAN CATHOLICOS PATRIARCH ILLIA II.

 

How can a nation claiming to be a christian attack the most innocent people in the world?! It is very interesting how things will develop. Until that I keep my dear brothers in my prayers.

 

Jehovah can see the injustice and he will step in on due time!

 

Jehovah's words are very clear:

 

"For this is what Jehovah of armies says: . . . ‘Whoever touches you touches the pupil of my eye.  For now I will wave my hand against them, and they will become plunder for their own slaves."

Can you keep us updated as best you can from your perspective?  All Y'all are in our prayers always.

Thank you very much! I am sorry I cannot tell you everything but please don't worry. All the brothers and sisters here are safe. No searches, no interrupted meetings.
