Religion / Study The Bible With Jehovah's Witnesses 2 by MaxInDHouse(m): 2:00am
Why believe in an invisible person? GOD
Most people will discard the idea of believing (trusting) in a person they can't see but does that really indicates smartness on their part?

Let's share our views.
When it comes to trust mostly we trust in many things we can't see yet we rely on this things solely with all our heart.

Good morning! smiley

What do you know about the LOVE of God? Mark 12:30 smiley

Whoever doesn't know what the LOVE of God means can't truthfully denounce faith in God.

Religion / Re: Where Did Jesus Say We Should Pray? by MaxInDHouse(m): 7:20am On Jan 17
Abbeytoy:
We turn to prayer because it is the most personal way to experience God, to encounter Him and to grow in knowledge of Him. According to the book of Ephesians, God's desire is for us to pray “on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests” (Ephesians 6:18).

Now to the topic.
Does it matter where we pray?
Is prayer more answer at church than house?
Where's the best place to pray if you want your prayers to be answered?.

Please Bible verse will be appreciated with your answer.
Thanks

For Jesus praying has just one single purpose:
For God's will to be done on earth! Matthew 6:10
This is so because Jesus is a perfect human whose personal NEEDS will always be met by his heavenly father, apart from FOOD, CLOTHING and SHELTER Jesus doesn't pray for anything else personally.

But for imperfect humans there are two purposes:
For God's will to take place on earth and our WANTS which are not basic necessities but individual heart desire.

So if we want to pray for what matters to Jesus (God's will) we must do so in the midst of other believers who also have the same line of thought and Jesus the number One child of God will be in our midst spiritually speaking to join us to support in DOING THE WILL OF HIS FATHER! Matthew 18:20

But when it comes to our personal desires each person will speak PRIVATELY to God {Matthew 6:6} since we have different things to ask unlike God's will that unites us as one with Jesus and his father! John 17:22

May you have PEACE! smiley

See as dey credit and discredit the situation at the same time in one single post. grin grin grin
The above is a common denominator shared by you and your religious organization and those you call churchgoers when scenario of this nature happens.
Warrior in faith by rejecting what the Catholic charity had to offer
Hiding from Jehovah’s witnesses and she no be Jehovah’s witnesses. grin grin grin Why she dey hide since she no be bonafide member? grin grin credit and discredit in one swoop.

What stopped Judas Iscariot from going to meet the other disciples after betraying Jesus?

Mr Apostate, this is not about credit or discredit but clarification on what really happened. Because with her action she proved that she knew the difference between accepting help and compromise.
If your so called Catholic Church is truly ready to sponsor the medical bills of patients there are millions of patients in need of such charity so let them go and pay their bills.
If Oge said "NO!" she reminds me of those guys who were prepared to die in a burning furnace in Babylon rather than simply taking a bow before Nebuchadnezzar's image.
Everyone in Babylon bowed before the image but Hananiah Mishael and Azariah (Shadrach Meshach and Abednego) insisted they would rather be thrown into the burning furnace than bowing.
Of course faithless miscreants like you will say "they've been brainwashed by their priests" who taught them the laws of their God! smiley

Religion / Re: Ailing Jehovah's Witness Member Dies After Rejecting Money From Catholic Members by MaxInDHouse(m): 5:38am On Jan 17
For the benefit of all who care to know what this is all about. This story is not from anybody whose name is tagged to it whether Can Nbanefo or Ogechukwu Ochiagha rather it's a plan work from Satan the Devil to stop people from listening to the Good News of God's kingdom coming from no other sources but the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses.

The girl Oge no doubt was once an attendee at our meetings but the situation surrounding her death shows that she's hiding away from those that supposed to take up her case and help her. There's no JW that's well known in any of our congregations throughout the world whose life is not precious to us.
So if the name of her congregation is missing in the story it simply means she has stopped attending our meetings by the time she needs help. Many often appear on Facebook and other social media claiming they are members of Jehovah's Witnesses organization just to make friends with JWs in advance countries.
Some of them are not even known in any of our congregations but since they've attended our meetings for some times they will claim JWs on social media.
Oge actually needed help but since she knew the ongoing spiritual warfare between the forces of light and darkness she was prepared to die rather than compromise the little she knew about the truth. The fact remains that her faith will surely be rewarded.
The only problem she had here was hiding from JWs and that shows she must have been commiting some blunders that she knows will affect her personal relationship with the true God. But with her last breath she proved to be a warrior in the faith.
Samson the son of Manoah was with God's people before he committed a grievous blunder, he died in the hands of God's enemies who wanted to mock his God but did he loose faith in the end?
NO! Samson died a faithful servant of his God
So no matter what anyone think, say or do in the resurrection of the dead this girl will be remembered for her faith {Job 14:13-15} she has learned her lesson in a bitter way.
When we finally welcome her in Paradise {Luke 23:43} we will ask her what actually happened and she will explain herself but then it will be laughter all through when death will be no more! Isaiah 25:8; Revelations 21:3-5

God bless you and may you have PEACE!

John the Apostle heard a voice saying:

It must be eating you up that you haven't been able to figure out my former moniker. cheesy
Anyway, pray tell what have you read in my mind uncle Max?

The highlighted is where the point is!

Everyone has gotten a past so you were once a believer in what's written in the Bible but when i knew you you're already becoming an atheist. That's why i always say "you're just a step away from ATHEISM" even though you don't want to admit it but keep saying you will not accept atheism there's nothing holding you back from turning against that book you once cherished so much!

I also have a former moniker, though i just want to chat with people but the way some will openly speak against the truth without remorse made me change from being just a commentator to a fearless defender of the faith!

So my conclusion after reading through you is that you're just feeling ashamed of yourself after all what you've typed here about your former beliefs, you would have preferred ATHEISM than believing in a book that you're now doubting! smiley

So they're not real stories yet you're talking about the Jews. How come the Jews are real people but their stories aren't real? cheesy
What about the Torah that was said to have been written by Moses?
Surely Moses is also not a real man, is he?

Myer:

My question is in these books, how were they aware of the private conversations they wrote about.
When God's people (Jehovah's Witnesses) tell you "we are the one and only group of messengers sent to TEACH you what is written in our book (Bible)"
You will become provoked instead of to humble yourself and learn! smiley

Well most Bible writers were contemporaries of those they talked about so they got many of their information through the character they wrote about and those present at the event.

For instance: After Jesus' baptism he was all alone without any disciples when God's Holy Spirit led him into the wilderness and many things happened there.
So how did his followers knew what transpired between Jesus and Satan?
Jesus must have told them since he doesn't hide anything from them! John 15:15

There's a similarity between Moses and Jesus, both of them spent 40 days and 40 nights in a place without food! Exodus 34:28; Luke 4:1-2

In the case of Moses all the information of how God created the heavens and the earth, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and other information God directly passed through His Holy Spirit to Moses during those 40 days and 40 nights.
That's why Moses was able to pen down many things that nobody knew.

Jesus' own was of two cases. By the time Jesus was born till his baptism he only knew that he's not ordinary human. All the memories of his heavenly life was hidden from him until the Holy Spirit landed on him and led him into the wilderness where he spent 40 days and 40 nights. All his memories was restored and how he will spend the rest of his earthly life no more as a skilled carpenter but a preacher and teacher of the good news for which he was sent! Luke 4:43

May you have PEACE! smiley

I would contact him myself except I am not on Facebook still. undecided

For this comment, God will bless you!

Throughout the world people know us as JWs but in every territory where you see JWs preaching we have a specific group assigned there so a JW from Ketu is not authorized to preach publicly in Ikoyi without first joining the congregation handling that territory.
That's why we can trace any JW throughout the earth. If a JW leaves Nigeria today and travel to Canada he/she will only be welcomed into our midst just as an interested admirer. It's until the congregation he associate with here in Nigeria sends a confirmation letter to the congregation in Canada before he will be announced before all JWs there that he/she is one of our families from Nigeria in Africa.
And the name of his/her local congregation will be on the letter with all other details.
So if he/she has any privileged here in Nigeria they must not hesitate to grant him/her the same privileged in any country he/she goes.

That's why i am asking this people:
What is the name of her local congregation? smiley

Religion / Re: The Second Coming Has Already Happened In 70 AD by MaxInDHouse(m): 4:54pm On Jan 16
MindHacker9000:

Answer your own question as you were the one sitting with Matthew when he was writing to know that he was having a vision below.

Well for the benefit of honest hearted and sincere followers of this thread i will!

Matthew was talking about Jesus' death so it couldn't have been about the resurrection that occured three days later!

Now calmly read but this time carefully and diligently:

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people. When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!" Many women were there, watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to care for his needs. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee’s son. As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Matthew 27:50-57

Matthew was reporting what happened the day Jesus died while the women were crying as they're watching from a distance.
So when he began talking about what happens at Jesus' resurrection it simply means that sacrifice has been accepted in the heavens so all ancient servants of God who lived faithfully now have the assurance of a resurrection because without Jesus' blood poured out they will forever remain dead as sinners! Romans 3:23 smiley

You can't even hide your deceit. God will continue to make you expose yourself. So you and Matthew were sitting together and he told you he was having a vision when he wrote in
Matthew-27-52-53
52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.
53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

Was Matthew talking about the day Jesus died or the day he resurrected? cheesy
Religion / Re: The Second Coming Has Already Happened In 70 AD by MaxInDHouse(m): 4:36pm On Jan 16
MindHacker9000:

You are the one that will die in your sins and deceit John 8:24 as you are a deceiver of your followers and you do not believe Jesus when he said in Matthew 24:34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened..
In Matthew 24:1-32 Jesus clearly stated that: The distress of those days and the destruction of the Temple were the end time events and Jesus said: “Immediately after the distress of those days
“ ‘the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky,
and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
22“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
30“Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven.

There was the greatest distress in Jerusalem around 70 AD leading to the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD by the Romans. Jesus also stated that: 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

The generation that witnessed the component signs of Jesus' return as a glorious King not those listening to Jesus.
So humble yourself and learn! wink

What has this got to do with been emotional?
Do you see what religious indoctrination has turned you into?
You would rather defend an organization led by 8 men in New York, than respect the death of another human being like you.
You always talk about LOVE.
But in reality, you have no inkling to what love really means.

Your problem is faithlessness!

The dead has nothing to do with the living {Ecclesiastes 9:4-6} so it's the organization of living people that matters to someone like me not the dead!

If you know God's people very well you wouldn't expect us to type R.I.P. in the case of a corpse because the hope of the dead now rest in the hands of God in whose book their deeds were recorded.
But when you're trying to accuse the living due to things you can't verify about the dead then i will not dance to your tune.
She is dead as in DEAD and we can't verify the truth behind her case as no congregation was mentioned whereas the name Jehovah's Witnesses have thousands of congregations that we only need the name of her congregation to know exactly what happened, you and your cohorts don't want that all what you're trying to do is join them in blackmailing God's people! smiley
