Sunday, Sept 17 - Young men will stumble and fall

The glory of young men is their strength.—Prov. 20:29.

As we grow older, we may be afraid that we are not going to be as useful to Jehovah as we once were. While it may be true that we have less energy than before, we can use the wisdom and experience we have acquired to help younger ones reach their full potential and take on new responsibilities. Older ones must be humble if they want to help younger ones. A humble person views others as being superior to him. (Phil. 2:3, 4) Older ones who show this quality realize that in many cases there is more than one Scriptural and effective way to carry out an assignment. Thus, they have a realistic view of the way they did things in the past. (Eccl. 7:10) While they have much valuable experience to share with the younger generation, they realize that “the scene of this world is changing” and that it may be necessary for them to adapt to new circumstances.—1 Cor. 7:31. w21.09 8 ¶1, 3
Under normal circumstances the Proverb is true. That being so, the day of Jehovah will bring about critical times hard to deal with and will exceed the limits of normal human strength. It has to be that way. God has to get everyone's attention. Nuclear war ought to do the trick. It certainly appears as if the Anglo beast is pushing for it.

I have mentioned this before, so excuse the repetition, and I am speculating here, but I am allowed to do that. Jesus said the tribulation will be of such severity that God will cut it short or else no flesh will be saved. We are talking about divine intervention. Will it be evident? I believe so. And that will be the basis for the judgment. What if the demons goad the rulers to unleash their whole arsenal of nuclear missiles? The Devil has made it horrifyingly simple. With push-button ease, one person can destroy the entire planet. But what if God's angels defused most of the missiles in flight? It would be known by all. And that is how the God of salvation will make himself known. Consider the ten plagues. Jehovah intervened to protect the Israelites. For example, when darkness came over Egypt for three days the sun shone upon the land of Goshen where the Hebrews lived.

Speaking of young men and their glorious strength, here is what Jehovah has to say during the dark days to come when Jesus reveals himself to certain chosen, individuals: "Do you not know? Have you not heard? Jehovah, the Creator of the ends of the earth, is a God for all eternity. He never tires out or grows weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the tired one and full might to those lacking strength. Boys will tire out and grow weary, and young men will stumble and fall, but those hoping in Jehovah will regain power. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not tire out.” - Isaiah:40: 28-31

6 “This is what Jehovah of armies has said, ‘Although it should seem too difficult* in the eyes of the remaining ones of this people in those days, should it seem too difficult also in my eyes?’*+ is the utterance of Jehovah of armies.”7 “This is what Jehovah of armies has said, ‘Here I am saving my people from the land of the sunrise and from the land of the setting of the sun.+ 8 And I shall certainly bring them in, and they must reside in the midst of Jerusalem;+ and they must become my people,+ and I myself shall become* their God in trueness and in righteousness.’”+9 “This is what Jehovah of armies has said, ‘Let the hands of YOU people be strong,+ YOU who are hearing in these days these words from the mouth of the prophets,+ on the day on which the foundation of the house of Jehovah of armies was laid, for the temple to be built.+ 10 For before those days there were no wages for mankind* made to exist;+ and as for the wages of domestic animals, there was no such thing;* and to the one going out and to the one coming in there was no peace because of the adversary,*+ as I kept thrusting all mankind against one another.’+11 “‘And now I shall not be as in the former days to the remaining ones of this people,’+ is the utterance of Jehovah of armies. 12 ‘For there will be the seed of peace;+ the vine itself will give its fruitage,+ and the earth itself will give its yield,+ and the heavens themselves will give their dew;+ and I shall certainly cause the remaining ones+ of this people to inherit all these [things].+ 13 And it must occur that just as YOU became a malediction among the nations,+ O house of Judah and house of Israel,+ so I shall save YOU, and YOU must become a blessing.+ Do not be afraid.+ May YOUR hands be strong.’+14 “For this is what Jehovah of armies has said, ‘“Just as I had in mind to do what was calamitous to YOU people because of YOUR forefathers’ making me indignant,”+ Jehovah of armies has said, “and I felt no regret,+ 15 so I will again have in mind in these days to deal well with Jerusalem and with the house of Judah.+ Do not be afraid.”’+16 “‘These are the things that YOU people should do:+ Speak truthfully with one another.*+ With truth and the judgment of peace do YOUR judging in YOUR gates.+ 17 And calamity to one another do not YOU scheme up in YOUR hearts,+ and do not love any false oath;+ for these are all things that I have hated,’+ is the utterance of Jehovah.”Read more>

The WT continues to cast it's spell by wanting the Older Ones to adapt to the sinister changes happening within. They have no care for the "older ones" they simply cast them aside for the "younger ones" to carry out their building projects. Perhaps the Older Ones can see the change within the WT and are none to happy?
