9.26: relig/jw.org/what is the good news? #wwIII:
. a jw.org rep asked me to look at an article
called "what is the good news?"
it makes a statement and provides scripture
that might hint how the statement is true.
. jw.org believes in heaven on earth;
angels toss out the sinners, install a global government
and then we live forever
without pain or death here on earth as humans.
. this reminded me of wwIII,
leaving only one military standing,
-- one global government --
that then enforces global arms control,
and brings peace on earth forever.
. the real you is your community,
and with global peace enforced forever,
your community (you) really could live forever
assuming your community can evolve
to travel to new stars after the Sun dies.
the god will make a better future for earthlings:
jerem 29: 11:
11 For I am conscious of my thoughts about you,
says the Lord,
thoughts of peace and not of evil,
to give you hope at the end.
the god will replace the governments of all nations
with a heavenly government:
isa 25: 8,
8 He has put an end to death for ever;
and the Lord God will take away all weeping;
and he will put an end to the shame of his people
in all the earth: for the Lord has said it.
isa 33: 24
24 And the men of Zion will not say, I am ill:
for its people will have forgiveness for their sin.
44 And in the days of those kings,
the God of heaven will put up a kingdom
which will never come to destruction,
and its power will never be given
into the hands of another people,
and all these kingdoms will be broken and overcome by it,
but it will keep its place for ever.
suffering ends when god clears out the wicked people:
2 Before the Lord sends you violently away in flight
like the waste from the grain;
before the burning wrath of the Lord comes on you,
before the day of the Lord's wrath comes on you.
3 Make search for the Lord,
all you quiet ones of the earth,
who have done what is right in his eyes;
make search for righteousness and a quiet heart:
it may be that you will be safely covered
in the day of the Lord's wrath.
the time is near:
2 tim 3:1-5:
1 But be certain of this, that in the last days
times of trouble will come.
2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money,
uplifted in pride, given to bitter words,
going against the authority of their fathers,
never giving praise, having no religion,
3 Without natural love, bitter haters,
saying evil of others, violent and uncontrolled,
hating all good,
4 False to their friends, acting without thought,
lifted up in mind, loving pleasure more than God;
5 Having a form of religion,
but turning their backs on the power of it:
go not with these.
bible tells how to enjoy everlasting life
on earth in the future:
25 The fear of man is a cause of danger:
but whoever puts his faith in theLord
will have a safe place on high.
6 And I saw another angel in flight
between heaven and earth,
having eternal good news to give
to those who are on the earth,
and to every nation and tribe and language and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice,
Have fear of God and give him glory;
because the hour of his judging is come;
and give worship to him who made heaven and earth
and the sea and the fountains of water.
