Congregations to be Organized Theocratically

The latest guidelines on theocratic organization of congregations were released by way of a letter to all English, French, German and Spanish speaking congregations in March of this year. A representative of the body of elders in each congregation should have already read the letter at the latest service meeting. If this is not the case in your congregation, please ask the elders regarding this matter. Otherwise, please contact us and we will be happy to look into the matter.

The 224 page book, An Organized Ministry, was updated in January, containing specific guidelines on the appointment of certain individuals within the congregation for various responsibilities. The guidelines in the new edition of this book, and outlined in our letter to the congregations, are to be put into effect no later than April 10, 2016.

2016 Publications List Updated

kw-splash-blockAs mentioned in the December 2015 and January 2016 issues of the Kingdom Witness magazine, the 2016 Theocratic Publications List has been updated. Congregations and individual publishers should begin ordering as soon as possible if they have not done so already.

We would also like to remind the brothers and friends that we are no longer producing videos in VHS format. All audio and video are now on DVD or CD-ROM.

All publications in English, French, German, Russian and Spanish are now digitized and available as an APP for your mobile device (smart phones, tablets) and as a program for your computer (Mac and Windows). Other languages are forthcoming.

Back Issues of Magazines on USB Flash Drive

We wish to announce that back issues of Kingdom Witness magazines, and others, in English are available on a 2.5 gig USB flash drive for use on personal computers (Mac, Windows, Linux).

Individual brothers and sisters should order through the literature servant instead of the special request section of the literature order form.

Blameless and Harmless, Without Rebuke

Zion’s Watch Tower – April 1911 {R4797}

BLAMELESS AND HARMLESS, WITHOUT REBUKE

“That you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you are seen as lights in the world, holding up the word of life; that I may have something to boast in the day of Christ, that I didn’t run in vain nor labor in vain.”—Phil. 2:15,16, World English Bible.

TO BE BLAMELESS is to be devoid of any disposition to do evil; not controlled by anger, malice, hatred, strife; but, on the contrary, to be disposed to do all the good possible to all with whom we have contact. We should be harmless, not merely so far as God would see, or so far as the brethren would see, but, so far as possible, harmless in the sight of the world, before whom we are to shine.

The reign of Messiah will not be one of force only; side by side with the force will be the olive branch of mercy and peace for all the inhabitants of the world, who, when the judgments of the Lord are abroad in the earth, will learn righteousness.
