Jesus made it very clear that at the time when people are to be judged, the time we are in, the only ones he would recognise as truly being his followers would be those doing the will of his father, Jehovah.

There are many good reasons for wishing that it could have been any other group who are fulfilling that role, though they are mostly selfish ones.

Doing Jehovah's will is certainly not any more comfortable than aligning yourself with his organisation.

But the question, and the only question that matters is are you prepared to do so yourself?

It's your choice, and your choice alone.

Why?

Because it is your life that rests on your choice, your eternal life especially.

Should you dismiss it lightly?

Or should you do all you possibly can to make sure?

Again, it is your choice.

You may not like Jehovah's choices, but do you accept that he knows best?

Good points. Jehovah doesn't make rules for his own benefit.. He makes them to keep us from experiencing pain.. He cares about us deeply and does not want a single one of us to take the path of destruction..

All that Jesus asked is that we love our fellow humans and love God.. Not outrageous requests if you ask me : P
(Matthew 24:14:) And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

The Kingdom message is reaching all corners of the globe. In 2010 alone, Jehovah"s Witnesses spent over 1.6 billion hours proclaiming this good news in 236 lands. Over the past decade, they have produced and distributed more than 20 billion items of literature.

That's the thing about having the free will to not doing someone else will, it comes without any consequences, hence it is a choice. With consequences, it is no longer a choice.

What is Jehovah's will, and how do you know that?
