And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.
1 Corinthians 15:26
This lovely scripture is on my mind because it’s included in the Special Campaign tract, “Can the dead really live again?” which is being distributed worldwide this month. If you haven’t been offered a copy yet, you can listen to, read and/or download the pdf HERE. Have a look – It will come folded, so the “front page” will look like this…
“My own God sent his angel and shut the mouth of the lions.”
…And Daniel was lifted up out of the pit, and there was no hurt at all found on him,
because he had trusted in his God.
Daniel 6:22, 23
Powerful angels protect Jehovah’s people even today, which is a great comfort because there are also wicked spirit creatures.

Most of the design elements making up this card come from my kit, juno Susurrations, available free on Juno’s Place.
And the details right way up for those not standing on their heads ;-)

And he makes his angels spirits, and his public servants a flame of fire…
Are they not all spirits for public service, sent forth to minister
for those who are going to inherit salvation?
There is so much fascination with angels today, but very little accurate information portrayed in books and films etc. Which is unfortunate because what the Bible says about these powerful spirit creatures is very compelling. We know that there are millions of them (Rev 5:11), and that they existed long, long before humans were created (Job 38:4-7). And as the above scripture shows, they are keenly interested in those “who are going to inherit salvation”. Jehovah uses angels to strengthen and protect those who want to serve him.

The text reads:
Jesus is now reigning as an exalted King. But what does this mean for you? Many believe that Jesus died for them. Yet, how can one man’s death almost 2,000 years ago mean life for others today? You are cordially invited to listen to the Scriptural answers to these questions. This information will be presented when Jehovah’s Witnesses gather to commemorate Jesus’ death on Thursday, April 5.
This special event will be held at the time and place shown below. (The details printed on this Invitation pertain to one particular part of Ireland. Please contact your local congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses for details of your nearest Kingdom Hall.)
The weekend following the commemoration of Jesus’ death, Jehovah’s Witnesses will also present an intriguing Bible-based discourse entitled “Is It Later Than You Think?” This talk will be one of the highlights of a worldwide effort to reach out to all those who love Jesus. You are invited to attend.
Just as the Son of man came, not to be ministered to,
but to minister and to give his soul a ransom in exchange for many.
Memorial season encourages us to meditate on all the reasons we have for the deepest gratitude to Jehovah and to Jesus. The forgiveness of sins now, the restoration to perfection during the Kingdom rule, everlasting life in peace and harmony, the coming perfect world free from injustice and crime, sickness, disability and death…Though available to all, Christ’s ransom sacrifice is not accepted by all. Being present at the Memorial shows that we acknowledge that we have been bought with a price. (1 Cor 6:20; 7:23)
We can wash our hearts clean now and have the hope of a paradise future, thanks to the ransom sacrifice of Jesus. He is well deserving of our thanks and our obedience. “Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19
The Memorial of Jesus’ Death takes place worldwide this Thursday, April 5.
It begins after sundown which in my part of the world is 8pm.
This is the only event that Jesus Christ commanded his disciples to memorialize.
It is also known as the Lord’s Supper, or the Lord’s Evening Meal.
“Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19)
Isn’t the question on the front of the Invitation interesting?
“Your word is truth.”
A simple, clear and unambiguous statement by Jesus.
The Bible contains God’s message of truth.
An illustration I find very helpful is that you can use the Bible as a filter.
Many of us have been brought up in different faiths that teach different things.
But you can pass any teaching through the filter of God’s Word.
If the teaching is not supported by the Bible, it’s not the truth.
