Have you carefully read this year’s issues of The Watchtower? Well, see if you can answer the following questions:
How will we be rewarded if we spend time talking to, listening to, and thinking about Jehovah?
We will make better decisions, be better teachers, have stronger faith, and grow in our love for Jehovah.—w22.01, pp. 30-31.
How will we be helped if we learn to trust in Jehovah and his representatives?
Now is the time to learn to trust in God’s way of doing things by not second-guessing the direction and the decisions of the elders. When the great tribulation strikes, we will be ready to obey even if we receive instructions that seem strange or illogical.—w22.02, pp. 4-6.
What was the angel’s point in telling Zechariah about a “plumb line in the hand of [Governor] Zerubbabel”? (Zech. 4:8-10)
This vision assured God’s people that the modest temple being built would be completed and would meet God’s standards.—w22.03, pp. 16-17.
How can we be “an example . . . in speaking”? (1 Tim. 4:12)
We speak with kindness and respect in our ministry, sing wholeheartedly, comment regularly at meetings, and speak truthfully and build others up, avoiding abusive speech.—w22.04, pp. 6-9.
What is a key way to show our confidence in God’s justice?
If someone has insulted us, offended us, or sinned against us, we try to let go of anger and resentment, leaving matters in Jehovah’s hands. He will undo all the harm caused by sin.—w22.06, pp. 10-11.
A brother who is offering a prayer at a meeting should keep what in mind?
In what way will “those who practiced vile things” experience “a resurrection of judgment”? (John 5:29)
They will not face a negative judgment based on their past life. They will be evaluated according to their attitude and conduct after their resurrection.—w22.09, p. 18.
What exciting exhortation did J. F. Rutherford give at a convention in September 1922?
At a convention in Cedar Point, Ohio, U.S.A., he declared: “The King reigns! You are his publicity agents. Therefore, advertise, advertise, advertise, the King and his Kingdom!”—w22.10, pp. 3-5.
Isaiah chapter 30 highlights what three ways in which God helps us to endure?
This chapter shows that he (1) listens to and responds to our prayers, (2) provides us with guidance, and (3) blesses us now and will do so in the future.—w22.11, p. 9.
David’s words aptly describe the blessed conditions that prevailed in Israel, such as during Solomon’s rule. Jesus pointed to a future paradise and quoted verse 11. (Matt. 5:5; Luke 23:43)—w22.12, pp. 8-10, 14.
