2 Timothy 4: 2 “Preach the word; be at it urgently in favourable times and difficult times; reprove, reprimand, exhort, with all patience and art of teaching.”
There is no doubt in the we limp from crisis to crisis, there is so much pressure created by the pace of change in our lives.
What “word” are we to Preach? Should we be shouting about tolerance, inclusion, setting the world to right through some social activity or civil disobedience?
Jesus was clear about the message he told his disciples to share Matthew 10: 7 “As you go, preach, saying: ‘The Kingdom of the heavens has drawn near.’
Again in Matthew 24: 14 “And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
The Global Preaching Work
The most powerful message we have on earth today is that the Kingdom of God is here and from the Bible prophesy we can be certain we live in the “last days”. Who is preaching about “God’s Kingdom and his Anointed King”? Who are doing this Globally? The Congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses!
During June 2022 millions of Witnesses have returned to their Public Ministry, privately, you may have met them in parks, received letters or telephone calls. The Preaching of the Word has not stopped.
Wherever you are, whatever language you speak Jehovah’s Witnesses introduce everyone to God’s Word the Bible, encourage people to examine the Bible for themselves. Oh yes they are labelled, ridiculed and persecuted for this. In the Russian Federation elderly Witnesses have been imprisoned for their faith, these are ordinary people, many are grandparents, carers and important family members.
What is the issue for those who poke fun, or have decided that they are a radical group brainwashing others to pay their taxes, obey the Cival Authorities, live honestly, promote fidelity and be good neighbours? One point Jesus explained – he described his followers as those who were no part of this world! Those who prayed for God’s Kingdom and of course like the Christ they are popular with those who know them, but hated by those who love the things God’s Kingdom will remove.
How sad it is that when the Cry is Salvation is at hand! the majority of the population respond we’re not interested.
Therefore, if you want to find out more detail on what the Kingdom is then stop at one of the public witnessing carts in your town, or visit http://www.jw.org
Jehovah’s Witnesses have the message of salvation, it costs nothing to ask the questionand then with support you can open the Bible for yourself and establish how John 17: 3 “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” Is the promise that assures us of a future without stumbling from crisis to crisis
