“JUBILEE TRUMPET” WITNESSING PERIOD—Leviticus 25:9, 10
The time is here for sounding liberty among all of earth’s inhabitants, to all races and nations. Freedom for all! That is welcome news to everyone who loves justice and truth and who unselfishly yearns for true liberty for all humanity. As conditions worsen and grow more unbearable, why should not people want to be free from such? The great Liberator has decreed that evil will not always prevail. No, his Word of promise offers freedom even now. This good news of liberation must be sounded out as though by trumpet blasts. This is being done by God’s faithful servants world-wide through the distribution of the Watchtower magazine. The “Jubilee Trumpet” Witnessing Period during April affords opportunity for many to take part in this fourth and last month of the Watchtower campaign. The Watchtower magazine is offered at $1 for a year’s subscription. New subscribers receive three Scriptural booklets free. To those already subscribers for The Watchtower, the Awake! magazine may be offered on the same basis. Get a supply of magazines and use them to acquaint others with their valuable contents. Single copies may be left with those who do not subscribe. Regular house-to-house distribution of the magazine will aid many to learn of freedom. So make April a magazine month.
DO YOU HAVE THIS BIBLE?
Regular readers of The Watchtower appreciate its use of the many and varied Bible translations. Frequently used is the New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures (shown by NW). This splendid rendition of the Sacred Scriptures records in modern speech the words and acts of faithful servants of God: the Gospels, the Acts, the Epistles, the Revelation—all shine with fresh beauty in this version. This fine piece of workmanship is based on the most ancient manuscripts extant, and embodies the results of the latest research in the field of archaeology bearing on Bible lands, languages and customs. Bound in attractive green cover, with gold-embossed title, and 800 pages of large clear type, it measures 7 5/16ʺ X 5ʺ x 1ʺ. Sent postpaid for $1.50.
