The solid foundation of God remains standing.—2 Tim. 2:19.

What is noteworthy about Paul’s assertion decision in this sacred text? This is the main notice in the Bible of “the strong establishment of God.” The Bible uses “establishment” as a representation for different things, including strict Jerusalem as the capital of antiquated Israel. (Ps. 87:1, 2) The part that Jesus plays in Jehovah’s motivation is likewise contrasted with an establishment. (1 Cor. 3:11; 1 Pet. 2:6) What did Paul have personality a top priority when he expounded on “the strong establishment of God”? Paul notice it in the same connection in which he quotes Moses’ words about Korah and his supporters, recorded at Numbers 16:5. Paul was obviously alluding to the occasions in Moses’ day with an end goal to energize Timothy and help him to remember Jehovah’s capacity to recognize and check insubordinate acts. Jehovah’s motivation was not going to be impeded by backsliders in the gathering any more than it was by Korah hundreds of years before.— Num. 16:35. w14 7/15 1:2, 4-6


From among you yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves.—Acts 20:30.

Unfortunately, the first Christian gathering bit by bit got to be adulterated. (Acts 20:29; 2 Pet. 2:2, 3; Jude 3, 4) As demonstrated by Jesus, such disaffection, advanced by “the insidious one,” Satan, would develop and darken genuine Christianity until “the finish of the arrangement of things.” (Matt. 13:37-43) Then Jehovah would enthrone Jesus as King over the universe of humanity. That happened in October 1914, denoting the start of “the most recent days” of Satan’s shrewd framework. (2 Tim. 3:1) Modern-day anointed Christians indicated ahead of time October 1914 as a critical date. They construct this with respect to Daniel’s prediction around an expansive tree that was chopped down and would become again after “seven times.” (Dan. 4:16) Jesus alluded to this same period as “the designated times of the countries” in his prescience about his future vicinity and “the finish of the arrangement of things.”— Luke 21:24; Matt. 24:3. w14 7/15 4:9, 10

Look out not only for your own interests, but also for the interests of others.—Phil. 2:4.

Paul encouraged all Christians to “watch out” for the hobbies of kindred adherents. The quintessence of Paul’s advice is that we ought to watch the endowments that others have and recognize them. (Phil. 2:3) How would we feel when somebody demonstrates enthusiasm for the advancement that we have made? As a rule, it invigorates us to gain extra ground, drawing out the best in us. In like manner, when we recognize the estimation of our kindred devotees, we help them to flourish and become profoundly. Every one of us need uncommon consideration now and again. Still, youthful or recently sanctified through water siblings truly need to sense that they are included in the assemblage’s exercises. This will offer them to comprehend that they some assistance with doing have a spot among us. Then again, inability to give fitting acknowledgment to such siblings might smother their yearning to connect for more obligations.— 1 Tim. 3:1. w14 6/15 4:9, 10

I will come against those living in security.—Ezek. 38:11.

In what manner will God react to sinister endeavors to pulverize his kin? Jehovah will mediate for their benefit, practicing his great Sovereign. Jehovah considers a strike on his hirelings to be an assault on him. (Zech. 2:8) Therefore, our superb Father will make brief move to safeguard us. That deliverance will go to its peak with the devastation of Satan’s reality at Armageddon, “the war of the colossal day of God the Almighty.” (Rev. 16:14, 16) Regarding Armageddon, Bible prediction expresses: “Those killed by Jehovah in that day will be from one end of the earth clear to the next end of the earth. They won’t be grieved, nor will they be gotten together or covered. They will get to be similar to compost on the surface of the ground.” (Jer. 25:31-33) Armageddon will convey this mischievous arrangement of things to an end. Satan’s reality will be off the beaten path, however the natural piece of Jehovah’s association will survive. w14 5/15 4:3-5

Those whom Jehovah loves he disciplines.—Heb. 12:6.

We despise being directed or taught. (Heb. 12:5, 11) Yet, consider what the person who is putting forth us counsel must consider. He should know about what we are doing that could influence our association with Jehovah God, he should be worried about our sentiments, and he must will to commit the time and exertion expected to demonstrat to us from the Bible how we can change our course to be satisfying to God. One sibling who utilized his telephone to get to explicit Internet destinations loaned his telephone to a senior. At the point when the senior started utilizing the telephone, flawed locales showed up. This ended up being a gift for our profoundly jeopardized sibling. He got auspicious guidance, profited from the redress given, and in the long run conquered the awful inclinations. How thankful we can be to our minding brilliant Father, who sees even our shrouded sins and amends us before we go too far! w14 4/15 5:8, 9

We just had to celebrate and rejoice, for your brother was dead but has come to life.—Luke 15:32.

The outline of the reckless child is a solid motivator for the individuals who have left reality to come back to Jehovah immediately! They might be profoundly depleted, and the route back might appear to be humiliating and troublesome. However, it is justified regardless of the exertion—even the sky will celebrate when they return. (Luke 15:7, 11-32) Never would we need to be so “excessively honest” that we decline to welcome humble heathens back. This would come about just in profound “ruin.” (Eccl. 7:16) We can take in another lesson from this. Somebody who leaves the gathering ought to be seen as “a lost sheep,” not an acts of futility. (Ps. 119:176) If we meet a man who has strayed from the assembly, will we offer adoring and commonsense help him to return? Will we instantly educate the seniors with the goal that they can offer proper help? We will on the off chance that we astutely apply the lesson we gain from Jesus’ outline. w14 12/15 2:12, 14, 15
