Who am I?

I've been a Jehovah's Witness since January of this year. Then I got baptised and promised God to serve him all my life. Since that they I'm officially a Jehovah's Witness.

My parents got Witnesses when I was about 2 years old, so I grew up with the bible stories. But nevertheless, I've been studying the Bible to search if what I learnt was really true and there is only 1 answer to it: it is!

Just like any other Witness, I go preaching to the people in my environment, just like Jezus asked in the book Matthew. I visit the meetings 3 times a week to learn more about God and the Bible.

What the Bible learns, is really the best guide for our life now, and it shows what will happen in the future. It gives life a sence and answers big questions like why we live here, why there is so much pain and violence in the world, how we can know God exists and what he will do about the problems. It's also a guide for daily life, marriage, friendships, how people have to act with each other in a peaceful way.

It makes my life better and more useful and I'm happy I know the Bible now. I hope to be able to help lots of people to do the same and find real happiness.

What's in a name?

Who are they?
Jehovah's Witnesses believe that the Bible is the Word of God. They consider its 66 books to be inspired and historically accurate.They take the Scriptures literally except where the expressions or settings obviously indicate that they are figurative or symbolic. They understand that many of the prophecies of the Bible have been fulfilled, others are in the course of fulfillment, and still others are going to be fulfilled in the future.

Why 'Jehovah's Witnesses'?

Jehovah: It is a descriptive name, indicating that they bear witness concerning Jehovah, his Godship, and his purposes. "God," "Lord," and "Creator" — like "President," "King," and "General" — are titles and may be applied to several different personages. But "Jehovah" is a personal name and refers to the almighty God and Creator of the universe. This is shown at Psalm 83:18, according to the King James version of the Bible: "That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth."

Witnesses: in the Bible, Satan shows he doesn't believe God is the One who has the right to lead the universe. He convinces people that they can live in a good way, whithout following Gods rules. God gives them the chance to prove this statement.Satan also says that men don't worship God because they love Him, just because of the profit they have from it. God also gives time to prove this.
God knows that people just screw it up without him leading them and knows that there always will be people who love and worship him.At a moment, the gods of the nations will be invited to bring forth their witnesses to prove their claimed cases to be right, or to hear the witnesses for Jehovah's side.
This moment is discribed in Isaiah 43 verse 10 and 11. There Jehovah declares to his people: "Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am Jehovah; and besides me there is no saviour."—American Standard Version.
His people witnesses that God is the only One who can rule the universe and that He is a good God. It's the name God chose for them.They are with about 6 400 000 people at the moment, spending together about 1 billion hours to tell people about God and His plans with the earth.
