Back to the Field

I picked up Jean on Saturday morning and we worked near the Station. We had some lovely calls. I desperately need to get back to my return visits, but my mind felt too scattered.   I think it will until Tuesday is safely over, as I hope it will be.   It was a stormy day, but sunny, with lovely September skies.  To the meeting this morning - very interesting Watchtower article - what the Inspired Scriptures say will happen next.

I sent it to Anne of the Cape, and will link it:[search_id]=6c7bc244-fa44-422d-9801-ebfcac5a0a32&insight[search_result_index]=2

It discusses Jesus warning to the Jews of his day:
(Luke 21:20,21) “However, when you see Jerusalem surrounded by encamped armies, then know that the desolating of her has drawn near.  Then let those in Ju·deʹa begin fleeing to the mountains, let those in the midst of her leave, and let those in the countryside not enter into her,"

Odd, because it would seem to be too late by then, when the armies had already surrounded Jerusalem. However, just as prophesied, the Roman armies came up against Jerusalem, and began to undermine the very walls of the Temple, when, suddenly, for no apparent reason, they withdrew. At that point, those who had listened to Jesus, the Christians, left, quickly.  And stayed away.

And had they not done so, there would have been no escape for them because of what happened next.

There is parallel for our day, which the article discusses.

A load of butterfly paperwork arrived, which I have got done. The Memership packages are all ready for posting.    We just watched an adaptation of J.B.Priestley's "An Inspector Calls", with David Thewlis and Miranda Richardson.  We really enjoyed it - good old-fashioned entertainment, with a strong message.
