WHO ARE WE ?

Topic:Jehovah's Witnesses?

Yes, that is the way we refer to ourselves. It is a descriptive name, indicating that they bear witness concerning Jehovah, his Godship, and his purposes. "God," "Lord," and "Creator"—like "President," "King," and "General"—are titles and may be applied to several different personages. But "Jehovah" is a personal name and refers to the almighty God and Creator of the universe. This is shown at Psalm 83:18, according to the King James version of the Bible: "That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth."
God's personal name in ancient Hebrew

The name Jehovah (or Yahweh, as the Roman Catholic Jerusalem Bible and some scholars prefer) appears almost 7,000 times in the original Hebrew Scriptures. Most Bibles do not show it as such but substitute "God" or "Lord" for it. However, even in these Bibles, a person can usually tell where the original Hebrew text uses Jehovah because in those places the substituted words are written in large and small capitals, thus: GOD, LORD. Several modern translations do use either the name Jehovah or the name Yahweh. Hence, the New World Translation reads at Isaiah 42:8, "I am Jehovah. That is my name."

Sunday, instead of staying at home, in front of my PC, Michel and I will drive to ST Maurice, to join some french to do some house calls.

Oh, yeah, part of our activities, giving people some "spiritual" food.

Your Lola had change. Got to work for God.

Latest news, we found an interested filipina, working in Nice and she got a beautiful baby girl. I will ask thier photo on our next visit.

No, this is not difficult.kasi ideas here are from the watchtower library, kaya ideas are already ready to share.
As a Jehovah's witness, I become clever in many ways, because I was trained to walk, think, speak the godly way.
But I still have flaws to correct time to time. Sinner pa rin Lola nyo.
