Examining The Scriptures Daily 2015 with biblical texts

To the King of eternity . . . be honor and glory forever.—1 Tim. 1:17.

King Sobhuza II of Swaziland ruled for nearly 61 years. That was quite a record for a modern-day monarch. As impressive as the length of King Sobhuza’s rule may be, there is a king whose reign is not limited by the short life span of humans. In fact, the Bible refers to him as “the King of eternity.” A psalmist identified this Sovereign by name, proclaiming: “Jehovah is King forever and ever.” (Ps. 10:16) The length of God’s reign makes his rule unlike that of any human. However, it is Jehovah’s way of ruling that draws us to him. A king who ruled over ancient Israel for 40 years praised God with these words: “Jehovah is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and abundant in loyal love. Jehovah has firmly established his throne in the heavens; and his kingship rules over everything.” (Ps. 103:8, 19) Not only is Jehovah our King but he is also our Father—our loving, heavenly Father. w14 1/15 1:1, 2

(1 Tim. 1:17) Now to the King of eternity, incorruptible, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
(Ps. 10:16) Jehovah is King forever and ever. The nations have perished from the earth.
(Ps. 103:8) Jehovah is merciful and compassionate, Slow to anger and abundant in loyal love.
(Ps. 103:19) Jehovah has firmly established his throne in the heavens; And his kingship rules over everything.

Whenever it is that they are saying: “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly upon them.—1 Thess. 5:3.

To date, no proclamations of peace have been the fulfillment of the prophecy recorded at1 Thessalonians 5:3. Why not? Because the foretold “sudden destruction” has not yet occurred. Who will make this significant future declaration of “Peace and security”? What role will the leaders of Christendom and of other religions play? How will the leaders of various governments be involved in this proclamation? The Scriptures do not tell us. What we do know is that no matter what form the proclamation takes or how convincing it might sound, it will be only a veneer. This old system will remain under Satan’s control. It is rotten to the core and will remain that way. How sad it would be if any of us were to believe the satanic propaganda and violate our Christian neutrality! Let us, then, “stay awake and keep our senses.”—1 Thess. 5:6. w13 11/15 2:9, 11, 12

(1 Thess. 5:3) Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape.
(1 Thess. 5:3) Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape.
(1 Thess. 5:6) So, then, let us not sleep on as the rest do, but let us stay awake and keep our senses.
