Jehovah Witness Open Convention
Publicado por Cristian Orellana en 12:36 a.m.
The last of a series of this year's annual convention of Jehovah's Witnesses will begin today, Friday, November 25 and will end on Sunday, November 27, 2011. Many people around the world recite a prayer asking for God's Kingdom to come, yet they have little idea of what they are asking for.
In sharp contrast to the often conflicting, confusing, and complicated explanations of that Kingdom is Jehovah's Witnesses promise a clear and refreshing approach to the topic at this year's Convention.
The theme for this year's District Convention is “Let God's Kingdom Come!” The Convention is scheduled to begin today Friday at the Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.
The Convention is the latest evidence of the Witnesses' sharp focus on the Kingdom mentioned in the model prayer recorded at Matthew 6:9, 10. Throughout the years, Jehovah's Witnesses have held conventions focusing on God's Kingdom government, carrying themes such as “Triumphant Kingdom,” “Divine Rulership,” “Kingdom Loyalty,” “Kingdom Truth, ”Kingdom Unity,” “Kingdom Increase,” and “Zealous Kingdom Proclaimers”.
The full title of the Witnesses' official journal is The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah's Kingdom.
The official history of Jehovah's Witnesses is recounted in the book Proclaimers of God's Kingdom.
Their houses of worship are known as Kingdom Halls, since the purpose of these buildings is to promote true worship and serve as a hub for the preaching of the “Good news of the kingdom,” as referred to by Jesus in the passage at Matthew 24:14. All of the Witnesses' public gatherings focus primarily on the teachings of the Bible and its central message about the theme of Jesus' ministry, namely, “the Kingdom of God,” in harmony with Luke 4:43.
To Jehovah's Witnesses, the Kingdom is a real government that will soon take action in favor of those subjecting themselves to it and against those who refuse.
At this year's convention, the Witnesses will feature an explanation of intriguing Bible prophecies related to God's Kingdom and how the Kingdom will bring permanent changes and blessings for those who love what is right.
Meanwhile Jehovah's Witnesses invite everyone to attend and learn more about these topics. All three days of the convention, the program sessions begin at 9:20 a.m. with free admission as conventions of Jehovah's Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
