'Trust in God and live', and do not be limited to human understanding.
Trust in Jehovah and Live!

“Trust in Jehovah with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding.”—PROV. 3:5.

DO YOU REMEMBER?

Why can we tell Jehovah our concerns?

What should our prayers include?

Why is waiting on Jehovah so important?

1. Why do we all need comfort?

WE ALL need comfort. Perhaps worries, disappointments, and afflictions have become part of our life. We may be struggling with heartaches resulting from advancing age, disease, or the loss of a loved one. Some of us are subjected to hostility. Escalating violence surrounds us. True, we are convinced that these “critical times hard to deal with” are evidence that we are living “in the last days” and that each passing day brings us one step closer to the new world. (2 Tim. 3:1) Still, we may have been waiting for a long time to see the fulfillment of Jehovah’s promises, and our difficulties may be increasing. So where can we find comfort?

 Quoting: Eastwood


It's a combination, God offers no instant enlightenment, except to Jesus if you put it that way. For man the bible is a puzzle progressively fit together piece by piece, for some not at all.

They changed the baptismal questions.

They denied the Holy Spirit and inserted a man made Organization in place of.

Jesus commanded to baptise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Over time, Jehovah's Witnesses have changed this requirement to include the "spirit-directed organization." Scriptural precedence is ignored in order to elevate the Watchtower organization.

"The first question is:
On the basis of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, have you repented of your sins and dedicated yourself to Jehovah to do his will?

The second is:
Do you understand that your dedication and baptism identify you as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in association with God's spirit-directed organization?



sorry, cannot bow to that.

God will protect His own from the end times judgments that are fast approaching! We need to be ready at all times because Jesus comes as a thief in the night!

Repent of your sins, learn to hear God's voice, obey Him, and endure until the end. This is the path to eternal salvation!

Yes here's the process;
"5 For this very reason, put forth all earnest effort to supply to your faith virtue, to your virtue knowledge, 6 to your knowledge self-control, to your self-control endurance, to your endurance godly devotion, 7 to your godly devotion brotherly affection, to your brotherly affection love. 8 For if these things exist in you and overflow, they will prevent you from being either inactive or unfruitful regarding the accurate knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." 2Pe1;5

2, 3. (a) What do we know about Habakkuk? (b) Why will we consider the book of Habakkuk?

2 To find the answer, let us examine the book of Habakkuk. Though the Scriptures do not provide specific details about Habakkuk’s life and activity, the book that bears his name is a source of encouragement. His name probably means “Ardent Embrace.” This could refer to Jehovah’s comforting embrace or to the way his worshippers confidently cling to him. Habakkuk spoke to God, asking probing questions. In effect, he asked questions on our behalf, since Jehovah inspired Habakkuk to write down the conversation.—Hab. 2:2.

3 This intimate dialogue between the distraught man of God and Jehovah is all the Scriptures reveal about the prophet. His book is part of “all the things that were written beforehand” and that are preserved in God’s Word, the Bible, “so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope.” (Rom. 15:4) How can we personally benefit from the book of Habakkuk? It can help us to see what it means to trust in Jehovah. Further, Habakkuk’s prophecy assures us that it is possible to acquire and maintain a calm heart despite our afflictions and problems. With that in mind, let us consider the book of Habakkuk in more detail.

CALL ON JEHOVAH

4. Why was Habakkuk distraught?

4 Read Habakkuk 1:2, 3. Habakkuk lived during a very difficult and challenging time. He was deeply saddened because he was surrounded by wicked, violent people. When would their wickedness end? Why did Jehovah take so long before acting? All Habakkuk saw was injustice and oppression practiced by his own countrymen. He felt helpless. So in the midst of this dark period, he called on Jehovah to intervene. Habakkuk may have started to imagine that Jehovah was not concerned. It seemed that God would not act soon enough. Can you identify with the feelings of this dear servant of God?

5. What important lesson is found in the book of Habakkuk? (See opening picture.)

5 Had Habakkuk lost trust in Jehovah? Did he fail to maintain his faith in God’s promises? By no means! The mere fact that he entrusted his problems and concerns to Jehovah and not to humans shows that he had not given up in despair. He was obviously troubled because he could not understand God’s timing or the reason why Jehovah allowed him to be in such a painful situation. By inspiring Habakkuk to write down his concerns, Jehovah provided us with an important object lesson: We must not be afraid to tell Him about our concerns or doubts. Indeed, he kindly invites us to pour out our heart to him in prayer. (Ps. 50:15; 62:8) Proverbs 3:5 adds the encouragement to “trust in Jehovah with all [our] heart” and not to “rely on [our] own understanding.” Habakkuk likely knew these words and took them to heart.
