The run-down house shows signs of neglect. Over the years, it has weathered many storms, not all of them successfully. Now the structure is fragile, and the collapse of the house seems imminent.
THAT picture describes the state of many marriages today. Have you ever felt that your own marriage may be heading in the same direction? If so, be assured that no couple is immune to problems. In fact, the Bible realistically acknowledges that those who marry are likely to have “pain and grief.”—1 Corinthians 7:28, The New English Bible.

Check your marriage of these danger signs:

Constant arguing
Bitter speech

if your marriage seems fragile and its collapse seems imminent, what should you do? Is divorce the answer?

A nation without a country

The English and Tagalog language assembly /convention/association held in Paris, France last July 2,3,4, 2010. I was there... The theme of the convention was:
Remain Close to God, Jehovah.

Please see our photos, puro ako, hahaha.

During the Program, a drama was going on

with my sister, niece and fiance;

Who are we? We are the Witnesses of Jehovah God, the true God, our Creator,the God of Abraham, Isaac, Moses, of the Israelites,Father of Jesus.

Jehovah's Witnesses are;

The ones who would knock on your door to offer you free bible studies at your convenient time.
Worldwide, we preach VOLUNTARILY of the good news from the Bible, we attend meetings twice a week, we attend assemblies organised by Bethel, the headquarters of each country. We base the teachings only from the Bible.

Bon. This is another reason, why we were in Paris.

Attendance that day were 1628 baptized Witnesses.
Just only for the English and Tagalog speaking Congregations in France.

Next week Michel and I and Marghie (with Anjo) if his work allows him, we will be in Marseille France, for three days assembly, in French Language.French speaking witnesses for South of France are, composed of 2500++ brothers and sisters.Some are from other countries,visiting or assisting the assembly.

With the world we are leaving now, where injustice and corruption and critical times sometimes hard to deal with, we need our Creator to guide us how to lead our life according to his Laws.We try to conform our life with what the Bible says.

If you happen to spot a mobile stand of a Jehovah's Witness, ask for your copy of the magazines, books, or bible. You can have it for free.And if you want to know your Bible, in 30minutes once a week through a visit of a Jehovah's witness, you will learn and might finish understanding the whole Bible in one year.

Ask. You are welcome.

readers asks

What is a Kingdom Hall?
It is a place of worship of Witnesses of Jehovah.
How many Kingdom halls are there all over the world?
105,000 congregations with total of 7million witnesses all over the world.

What do you do there?

We attend programs which mostly constitute Bible studies and talks.
There are 100 to 300 chairs each Kingdom hall, with a platform or stage.
There is a small office and a library for all literature , bibles and books for references.
There is no images, altar, or crucifix.
The Witnesses believed that in using then is a form of idolatry and the use of those images are unbiblical(1 cor 10:14, John 4;24)

Some churches are decorated extravagantly. While the Kingdom halls are simple and practical.The idea is to concentrate more on bible teachings than focus on the building it self.

Why it is called Kingdom hall?

It is link with the important message of "Kingdom of God" the theme of Jesus teachings in(Luc 4:43) Thats why the name Kingdom Hall was found in 1930 to continue the true worship, and the focus of the teachings is "good news of the kingdom"(Mat 24:14)
They are not used for business or for social events. The cost of building it, the elecricity and water, are all from donations. No one is oblige to donate, there is a box in one corner to donate if one wishes to.

There is united purpose of building the Kingdom halls, but all over the world, there is the difference of sizes, and style.The designs depends on the materials available in each country , the climate, and financial capacity of the members of Jehovah's Witnesses in the area.Some are made of cement. Some are made of wood, some do not have walls, or having bamboo walls, or the roof is made of nipa hut.

Everyone is invited in the Kingdom Hall.Every twice a week, there are meetings held in each Kingdom Hall for everyone, members and their guests.You may ask for informations for the weekly programs, the attendance are free, no fees to be collected.

Why dont you try to attend one of the meetings in the Kingdom Hall in your area?

When crushed and broken heart ask for forgiveness

May aral na maganda ang kwentong ito sa larawan.

Based in Book of Samuel 12:1-14

We stumble many times.We are all sinners.How much we regret and repent, we still think:
Does God listen to my prayers?Does He sees my desire to repent?Will He forgive me?

The Bible teaches a refreshing truth.Despite God does not approved of our sins, He is ready to forgive us if we repent.We can see that in the case of King David of Israel in 2 Book of Samuel verse 12;

Think of this, David made a grave sin. He had an adulterous affair with Bath she ba and as he cannot longer hide the illicit affair,he plot to have Bath she ba's husband be killed in the war.He tried to keep it in secret for months and act as innocent.
But God Jehovah sees it all.But God sees the heart of David being sorry and would like to change(Proverbs 17:3) What will God plan to do?

God Jehovah sent the Prophet Nathan to David.With the help of the Holy Spirit, Nathan knows he must be very diplomatic in dealing the subject to the King.What could Nathan do , so that King David realize the gravity of his sins?

So that David cannot deny the truth, Nathan told David a story that he is sure would touch the heart of a shepherd like David.

The story is about two men, a rich and a poor man.

The rich man have a lot of flock( cows and sheep)but the poor one have only one female young sheep.One day the rich man received a lot of guests, and he decided to have the poor mans only sheep to be killed and be served to the guests.Instead of killing one of his flock, he took the only sheep the poor man have.

King David was so much affected of the story, he was thinking the story was real,King David was angry and crying: "The one that does that should die!"
"Because he is not compassionate to the poor man", answered David.

David was so touched by the story of Nathan.But in a way, David is condemning himself.Nathan told him: "It was you the man in the story"!

While Nathan speaks for God,it is clearly shown that God Jehovah was hurt of what David did.Because David violates Gods law.You betray me, God said.David was so crushed in his heart that he said: I sinned against God. Nathan assured David that God Jehovah forgave him, but David will still face the consequences of his wrongdoing.

After the exposure of Kind David's sins, he wrote the Psalms 51.Here in this book, he pour all his sadness and his heartfelt asking for forgiveness.Because of David's sins, it is like he despised God,but when God forgave him,this is what he said about Jehovah; "The heart that is crushed and broken, Oh my God, you will not hate."(Ps 51;17)

This will surely a comfort to all sinners who ask for forgiveness from God.

(The meals of a lamb to guest is a sign of hospitality. But to steal one's lamb is a crime(Exodus 22;1)In fines, the robber should pay back 4x the amount stolen. In the eyes of David, the deed of the rich man is unacceptable. The rich man killed the only source of food of the the poor man to his family, (milk and wool)Also, he stole the chance of the poor man to have many sheeps in the future.

How can we apply this principle in our daily lives?

Do not show yourselves being heated up to evildoers.Do not get envious to those doing unrighteousness.

The seeming success of evildoers may prompt feelings of envy.
But will our getting upset improve the situation?
Does envy of the apparent advantages that the wicked enjoys alter the outcome for them?
Most definitely not!
And there is REALLY no need for us to be "heated up".
Why not?
The psalmist says:
For like grass, they will speedily withers, and like green new grass,they will fade away.

Green new grass may look pretty but soom they will shrivel and die.
Likewise with evildoers.Their apparent prosperity is not permanent.
When they die, their ill gotten wealth cannot help them.
Justice will finally catches up with everyone.
The wages sins pays is death.
Evildoers and all who are unrighteous will finally receive their "wages" and no more.
references: (Psalms 37:2, 35,36,49:16,17 Romans 6;23)
What a profitless life.

our old personality

Put away our old personality which conforms to your former form of conduct and... put on the new personality which was created according to God's will. Ephesians 4:22,23

Before making a dedication to serve God Jehovah through baptism,many of us had to make significant changes so that our dedication/vow would be meaningful and acceptable to Him.

In other words, before saying YES as respect to our dedication/vow/baptism,to God, we had to say NO to un acceptable former way of life.

Certain feaures of our old personality that prospective servants of God (to be His Witness) must put away are condemned by God's words (laws)in the Bible.

What are they?

Paul enumerated some in his letter to the Corinthians saying,

"Neither fornicators nor idolaters, nor adulterers,nor men who sleep with men,nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards,nor revilers,nor extortioners will inherit God's Kingdom."

He then added; Yet that is what some of you were.

Notice were not are.

1Cor 6;9-11

Bon weekend a tous!

our tongue

weekly bread.

The tongue , not one of mankind can get it tamed, James 3:8

In addition to the above,James reminds us,
"We all stumble many times.If anyone does not stumble in words,this one is a prefect man, able to bridle also his own body."

None of us are perfect, despite of our best intentions, therefore, our speech sometimes do not build each others up and does not praise our Creator.
So then we must pay attention on what we say.

Jesus mentioned in his teachings, that our words when we speak will declare us righteous, or we will be condemned.(Mat 12;36,37)

Yes, our True God holds us accountable for our words.

One way to avoid harmful speech is to develop in engaging spiritual conversations, encouraging and pleasant to the ears.

It must be different from "tickling" someone's ears to get an advantage.
It is an honest conversations that is keeping the soul alive and encouraging one another without looking for any hidden agenda.
