A convention on courage

OGDEN – A three-day convention sponsored by Jehovah’s Witnesses has the theme “Be Courageous”.  The convention will take place June 2224 at the Dee Events Center, 4450 Harrison Blvd in Ogden. Up to 5,000 convention delegates visiting from Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Utah are expected.

The convention will feature talks and interviews where delegates will learn practical ways to face present and future challenges with courage; multi-media presentations where you can observe what real people – and even five animals – can teach us about courage; a public Bible discourse on Sunday morning with the theme “The Resurrection Hope Imparts Courage – How?”’; and, on Sunday afternoon a feature film that will highlight the Bible prophet Jonah and why he feared his assignment and ran away.

The conventions will be held at venues in 180 different lands and, prior to the conventions, Witnesses around the world will also participate in a global campaign to invite the general public to attend the program free of charge.  That invitation campaign has been ongoing since June 1st locally.   A Spanish-language convention will be held the following weekend – June 29-July 1 – at the same location.  For more information: www.jw.org

    “Be Courageous!”, is the theme of this years’ convention.
    JWs are pressured to “serve” the organization. Matt 6:24 Not doing so can result in fear and anxiety, since having faith and hope, is based on an organization that promises salvation as long as JWs “serve” the Watchtower through one’s “time, energy, and material possessions” ( Wt 2017/10) Called “Jehovah’s spirit-directed organization” and “Zion”, it is in reality a deceptive ploy to mislead honest-hearted ones and God’s anointed ones, seducing them into a false sense of “peace and security”. This ploy originates with the demonic spirit, Satan, who can appear as an “angel of light”. Satan and his ministers direct this organization – the fourth Beast of Daniel and Revelation’s two Beasts, to come against the anointed ones. 1 Thess 5:1-3;2 Cor 11:13-15; Rev 13:1,7,8,11,14-17; Dan 7:23,25

    JWs, who comprises your priesthood? Do you know who they are? This priesthood is found with the anointed ones, who are also God’s “Temple”/Zion. Isa 43:10; 1 Pet 2:5,9; 1 Cor 3:16,17; Eph 2:10,20-22 Yet, the elder body has been given authority by a “wicked slave” to rule over and disfellowship them. Matt 24:48-51; Rev 13:15 Don’t you find it rather incredible, that God’s chosen “holy ones” can be considered spiritually “dead” for not accepting failed and false doctrine. THEY and those who seek the way of Truth, are the COURAGEOUS ONES to stand up to an elder body who acts as their spiritual judge, cutting them off from family and friends. John 14:6 Rom 14:4; Matt 5:10,11 What about yourselves? Do you rally behind this elder body and condemn God’s appointed priesthood, when they speak Truth in Christ? John 16:2; Acts 7:54-58; Luke 21:12 Do you continue to swallow lies; among them, of which are those called “new light”? Jer 23:32

    The elder body “standing” over/in the Temple/priesthood is the “disgusting thing” of Matt 24:15; 2 Thess 2:3,4; Dan 9:27; 11:31
    Please, JWs! Leave this darkness! Matt 24:16
    “Come out of her, my people”! Rev 18:4-8
