Spiritual Food for the Proper Time was presented at the 2014 District Convention
Millions of people throughout the world, received a personal invitation to a convention based on the theme, #Keep Seeking First God's Kingdom! Individuals who attended this event, wholeheartedly acknowledged, "Earth's new ruler," Jesus Christ-qualifies as King of Jehovah God's kingdom and New World Government. Recent events such as #Brussels attacks, has caused concern for #copycat attackers. Pierre Thomas, on GMA explained, "In the past two and a half years at least 103 Americans have been charged with trying to join Isis." With the death and injury of so many people in these terroristic events, we must look to a source which is God's word the Bible, for answers in order to survive wickedness that exist in the world today.This 2014 convention of Jehovah's Witnesses, was a free public event that was divinely enriching for people of all nations. A 2018 District Convention, that is free of charge will be held within your area. For more information, go to www.jw.org
Human beings are in dire need of a government that will fulfill what Matthew 6:9,10 teaches us to pray for; Jehovah God's Kingdom to come, so that his will be accomplished on earth, "as it is in heaven." Stunning evidence was presented with in-depth scriptural solutions regarding these critical times. If each of us Keep Seeking First God's Kingdom in our lives, Almighty God will bless our efforts.
More than 195,138 attended, with more than 1,329 baptized. Video tie-ins from Atlanta, Georgia which included such areas as Florida, Texas, New York, Jamaica, North Carolina and Arizona. The convention information was translated in numerous languages such as Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, Korean and Russian. It had to be compelling, for our Grand Creator Jehovah, to hear and observe all these languages singing praise to his magnificent name.
Convention highlights included beautifully depicted Bible based dramas. Realistic modern day symposiums filled with tools to help us deal with family and friends on a daily basis. An abundance of Bible based talks, with dynamic speakers were presented. Immense scriptural information was featured that teaches each of us how to survive in this world filled with #immoral sex, violence, sickness, death and greed. We are living in a world full of anxieties because of these problems. One brother stated during his talk, "Anxiety is like static on the radio, it can ruin a beautiful song. Do not let anxieties over tomorrow, weigh you down today. Do not be anxious about the next day, take one day at a time." These statements can be utilized by each of us daily.
The Keep Seeking First God's Kingdom Convention, was held in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. Numerous convention dates still remain internationally and within the United States such as; London, Greece, Hawaii, Maryland, California and Florida. Go to www.jw.org for future convention dates.
We are living in a world filled with debasing hatred inspired by racism and prejudices. How encouraging it is to see genuine love expressed between races. Before the program started, during breaks and after the #convention, people of different races embraced each other due to excitement. People of various age groups attended from the age of five months to at least a hundred years old. United together, they gave praise to their God Jehovah and his precious son #Jesus Christ. Under this rulership, it was explained that Christ is the perfect ruler because "he has profound knowledge about his Heavenly Father and understands human nature. Jesus, will be able to get to the heart and solve complex problems because he is especially fond of humans. He will help us live in a way, to bring benefits now and forever."
While on earth Jesus proved why he is the best ruler of this spiritual government. Through God's holy spirit, Jesus, healed the sick, raised the dead, fed the hungry and even controlled weather conditions. Jehovah God and his appointed King Jesus Christ, will never die like mankind does. That is why, the majority of the people who attended this convention; without hesitation chose this perfect spiritual government. It has the ability to answer all mankind's problems whether it is solutions for our economy, elimination of disasters, #healthcare or safety from violence.
It was also encouraging to see families and friends, gather together before and after conventions during those three days, for delicious physical meals; where they talked about the spiritual information they had received. Local restaurants such as Cracker Barrel, Smokey Bones and Red Robin, were very responsive to the needs of these conventioneers. Hotels in the area, were also very accommodating as well. Jehovah blessed the efforts of these participants.
It would be very unloving to relinquish too much information about this convention because millions of people still plan to attend in the future. It was truly a family oriented, spiritually encouraging event. Sary SoK and Pon Nouv, attend the Central Cabodian congregation in Philadelphia. Although husband and wife, they explained how in Cambodia, they have different last names unlike our culture where the wife takes the husbands last name. Sary and Pon, explained how much they were enjoying the convention. Chh Unsrey Lim, originally from Cambodia expressed, "About 2006 she was a #Buddist." Her family for generations practiced this religion. Now different members of her family have come into the truth. "My mom who is 83 years old just turned Jehovah's Witness in Cambodia. She threw away everything that had to do with that religion. Now she serves Jehovah." Mr. and Mrs. Alexander, also serves in the Cambodian congregation, after leaving an English speaking congregation. Mr. Alexander, explained how much he enjoys serving in the Cambodian language. "I love it. I am so glad my wife and I did it and we will never go back to English. I do not regret this decision. I do regret that we did not do it earlier. The people in the Cambodian congregation are very pleasant. We all refer to each other as brother and sister because we are a family."
After the attendees received three days of an abundance of spiritually uplifting information; the convention ended. Tears flowed from the eyes of young and old, men, women and children. A stunning song was played at the end of the program on Sunday. It was one of the most beautiful songs, I have ever heard. It was based on Jehovah Witness' belief in the wonderful promise of a paradise earth in the future entitled, See Yourself When All Is New. Over 195,000 participants went on to sing such assuring words as "Think how you'll feel, how it will be. To live in peace, to be truly free. No evil one will then prevail; Rule by our God cannot ever fail." The chorus ended with, "Jehovah our God, how well you have done! All things are new by the rule of your son. The fullness of our heart overflows in our song; All glory and honor and praise to you belong." This song was produced by #Watchtower Bible Tract Society.
This spiritual feast ended. "It was three days of a spiritual utopia," stated one participant. Families gathered to praise Almighty God and his son Jesus. Earth's new ruler has been chosen and the attendees, unanimously agree with their Grand Creator's choice. We live in a world full of turmoil but we are thankful that Jehovah God gave his son as a sacrifice and now he rules as king, of this spiritual government. Jesus Christ, is truly qualified to rid the world of all the problems Satan, has created. Imagine, a world without pain, sorrow, sickness or death. Numerous speakers proved through the scriptures such as Isaiah 9:6 which states, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder:" (The Scofield Reference Bible) This is not an unrealistic promise. We all desire a better world. Movies such as Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp, prove that as humans, we desire the sick to be healed, although if humans had this type of power, would we abuse it as proven in the movie. This promise of a paradise earth will occur, "Paul a slave of God an apostle of Jesus Christ according to the faith of God's chosen ones and the accurate knowledge of the truth that is according to godly devotion and is based on a hope of the everlasting life, that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago;" Titus 1:1,2. (New World Translation of the Holy Scripture) Gone, will be the problems of corruption, violence, #immigration laws that are out of control and disputes amongst political leaders. This spiritual government will be a blessing to all mankind.
