Hospitable Earth

Do not forget hospitality, for through it some unknowingly entertained angels.​—Heb. 13:2.

Windy…outdoor break with my daughter(s)…took this pic.

this afternoon.

Thinking about humans’ very-less-than-perfect ways of expressing so-called justice…and am reminded of the perfect example: Yahweh

Perfect is his activity, for all his ways are justice.”​—Deuteronomy 32:4.

People punish and exclude those they think are their so-called “enemies”…it’s so stupid and SAD:(

These encouraging thoughts are Happy thoughts about the Bible’s “Happy God”…

God is generous toward all, including those apparently undeserving. For example, “he makes his sun rise upon wicked people and good and makes it rain upon righteous people and unrighteous.” (Matthew 5:45) He treats people of all races and cultures justly, as Acts 10:34, 35 shows: “God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.” [excerpted: w 10/11 “God is Unfair–Is It True?“]

the Earth is not partial; Thankful. 🙂

p.s.

What, then, is the source of injustice? Many people choose to act unfairly, not following God’s example of justice. (Deuteronomy 32:5) Also, the Bible shows that God is allowing his enemy, the Devil, to exercise authority over the world. (1 John 5:19) However, God’s permission of this unjust rule will soon end. He has already set in place his means to “break up the works of the Devil.”​—1 John 3:8.

How knowing the truth helps you: You might be perplexed by the seemingly endless reports of corruption, oppression, and injustice. Knowing the cause of the trouble helps you understand why conditions are so bad and why man’s best efforts to make the world a better place consistently fail. (Psalm 146:3) Rather than devoting time and energy to making changes that would be temporary at best, you can have a sound hope for the future based on trust in God’s promises.​—Revelation 21:3, 4. [excerpted: w 10/11 “God is Unfair–Is It True?“]

on the move…

ready to go?
on a “spiritual” ride..:)

here’s an appetizer…aka “brief” readings (till i find/have time to share more; okay? 🙂 )

just a “friend” ly reminder: Hebrew “Yahweh” English “Jehovah”…

There is much more going on in support of Jehovah’s purposes than what we can see. For example, Ezekiel saw the invisible part of Jehovah’s organization depicted by a colossal celestial chariot. This chariot could move swiftly and change direction in an instant. (Ezek. 1:15-21) With each revolution of its wheels, the chariot could cover great distances. In vision, Ezekiel was also able to get a glimpse of the Rider of the chariot. He said: “I got to see something like the glow of electrum, like the appearance of fire all around . . . It was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Jehovah.” (Ezek. 1:25-28) How awe-inspiring it must have been for Ezekiel to see this vision! He saw Jehovah in full control of his organization, directing its movement through his holy spirit. What an amazing representation of the heavenly part of Jehovah’s organization on the move!

Ezekiel (Hebrew, Yechez·qeʼlʹ) means “God Strengthens.”

That Ezekiel actually wrote the book that bears his name and that it has a rightful place in the canon of Scripture is not in dispute. It was included in the canon in Ezra’s day and appears in the catalogs of early Christian times, notably in the canon of Origen. Its authenticity is also testified to by the striking similarity between its symbolisms and those of Jeremiah and the Revelation.​—Ezek. 24:2-12​—Jer. 1:13-15; Ezek. 23:1-49​—Jer. 3:6-11; Ezek. 18:2-4​—Jer. 31:29, 30; Ezek. 1:5, 10​—Rev. 4:6, 7; Ezek. 5:17​—Rev. 6:8; Ezek. 9:4​—Rev. 7:3; Ezek. 2:9; 3:1​—Rev. 10:2, 8-10; Ezek. 23:22, 25, 26​—Rev. 17:16; 18:8; Ezek. 27:30, 36​—Rev. 18:9, 17-19; Ezek. 37:27​—Rev. 21:3; Ezek. 48:30-34​—Rev. 21:12, 13; Ezek. 47:1, 7, 12​—Rev. 22:1, 2. [excerpted: Bible Book Number 26–Ezekiel, “All Scripture Is Inspired of God and Beneficial”]

Including and excluded…

There are many things that Jehovah chose not to include in his written Word. For example, he did not provide details about how the brain works or how the universe functions, even though such information would have been very fascinating! Rather, Jehovah provided information that we need in order to understand his purposes and to live our lives in harmony with them. (2 Tim. 3:16, 17) How interesting, then, that the Bible does provide glimpses of the invisible part of Jehovah’s organization! We thrill at reading the descriptions of Jehovah’s heavenly arrangement written by Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel and in John’s Revelation account. (Isa. 6:1-4; Ezek. 1:4-14, 22-24; Dan. 7:9-14; Rev. 4:1-11) It is as if Jehovah pulled back a curtain and allowed us to peer into the heavens. Why did he provide this information?

Jehovah wanted us never to forget that we are part of a universal organization.
