The first trimester of 2020 was one which overtook us all. The corona crisis and lockdown will leave some traces for some time, have an impact for several years. Lots of people in many countries got limited where they could go and were restricted in their life contacts. Churches were closed and lots of people […]
With the month of March, we come to days that we can greet Spring, but also to days that we remember the prophet of God, who came to suffer a lot. Already early, at the beginning of mankind, a first prophecy was given, that he would come into the world and would get wounded for […]
Review of the second decade of the 21st century and opening the 2020ies.
We should love, not in word or with the tongue, but in deed and truth.—1 John 3:18. Love based on right principles (a·gaʹpe) is a gift from Jehovah. He is its Source. (1 John 4:7) This kind of love is the highest form of love. While it can include affection and warmth, it is primarily identified by […]
DOES THE “I AM” STATEMENT OF JESUS IN JOHN 8:58 PROVE THAT HE IS GOD? IS HE THE GOD WHO SPOKE IN EXODUS 3:14? — Bro. Joe Ventilacion 🇮🇹 Defenders of Christ-is-God theology cite John 8:58 as one of their biblical bases in proving their belief that Jesus Christ is God. Let’s take a look […]
IS CHRIST GOD BECAUSE HE SAID THAT “I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE” IN JOHN 10:30? — Bro. Joe Ventilacion 🇮🇹 There are some people who believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is God because he said in John 10:30 that “I and the Father are one.” Although the verse does not say that Jesus […]
The peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts.—Phil. 4:7. Pray, and then you will receive the peace of God. But notice that “the peace of God . . . surpasses all understanding.” What does that mean? Some translators render this expression “surpasses all our dreams” or “excels all human planning.” Paul was, in […]
The Bible speaks of God as “Sovereign” and “Sovereign Lord” Him being worthy to receive the glory and the honour and the power, because He created all things. Jehovah’s sovereignty has beauty, excellence and dignity. The psalmist writes: “Righteousness and judgment [or, “justice”] are the established place of your throne; loving-kindness and trueness themselves come in before your face.” (Ps. 89:14)
Sovereignty and omnipotence are connected attributes of the Most High Supreme All-knowing Spirit Being.
The world will have to get to know the Name of the Supreme and those who refuse to know His Name will be ashamed and overwhelmed with terror so that they will sink to the ground of repentance and then they will finally realize that Jehovah is the Most High Supreme Power and Lord over all lords is.

(Charles Spurgeon) God is wonderful in His designs, and excellent in His workings. Believer, God overrules all things for your good. The needs-be for all that you have suffered, has been most accurately determined by God. Your course is all mapped out by your heavenly Father! Nothing will take Him…
In our life we, as a God-loving person, are best to trust God in His compassion and to merge with others who also believe in Him and want to entrust their lives to Him.
Jehovah, Jehovah, a God merciful and compassionate.—Ex. 34:6. On one occasion, God revealed himself to Moses by declaring His own name and qualities. The first ones that he listed were mercy and compassion. (Ex. 34:5-7) Jehovah could have stressed his power or his wisdom. Yet, to Moses, who was seeking reassurance of God’s backing, Jehovah […]
“Now, of the things which we have spoken, this is the sum.” It has been seen that salvation from sin and death, the prime necessity of our race, has been provided in the divine purpose. Pursuant to the accomplishment of His purpose, God covenanted with Abraham that the blessing to all the families of the […]
Several of the Covenants which God made are styled “everlasting.” Not that they all are to be considered endless, but rather uninterrupted or perpetual until such time as may have been appointed for them to expire. The Covenant with Noah (Gen. 9: 9-17), that of the Law (Ex. 31: 16; Lev. 24: 7-9; Num. 18: […]
It has been pointed out that there are many parallels between the Law and the New Covenants. These extend to some particulars connected with the inaugurations of both. The first item of the Law was the Passover. The first item of the New Covenant is the antitype of this — “Christ, our Passover is sacrificed […]
That the New Covenant is applied to the Church of the Gospel age, and will also be applied to the people in the Kingdom age, is perfectly plain from a consideration of the specifications of the New Covenant as referred to in various Scriptures. “I will put my laws into their mind, and write them […]
To what purpose and to whom does the New Covenant apply? The New Covenant was instituted to supersede the Law Covenant (Heb. 8: 7, 8), for the purpose of accomplishing what the Law could not do on account of weakness of the flesh. (Rom. 8: 1-4.) Bearing in mind that the purpose of the Law […]
How is the law of God “written” on the hearts and minds of the New Covenant people? By the ministration of the Spirit, and the sanctifying power of the truth. (2 Cor. 3 : 3, 8, 9, 18; John 17: 17.) As the consecrated believer in the “one offering” submits to these influences, he realises […]
Three conditions have to be dealt with if the Abrahamic Covenant or promise is to bring a permanent blessing to “all the families of the earth.” These are the “sins of the past” both of Jews under the Old Covenant and of Gentiles under no covenant; sins committed, whether through weakness or wilfulness, after the […]
