by Staff Reporter

The event, which is expected to be attended by over 2500 congregants at the Harare Assembly Hall, is the first of a three-day programme to be held in the capital.
Thousands of Witnesses will throng the venue each weekend for Bible-based programmes through to October 12 to14.

Spokesperson for the organisation, John Hunguka, yesterday said this year’s theme focussing on courage was the third in the series of vital qualities that have been highlighted since 2016 for Christians to develop stability. He said the conventions’ series in 2016 and 2017 focused on loyalty and endurance respectively. The launch of the 2018 convention series this year was preceded by a campaign to invite the public to attend the programme free of charge.

The three-day programme consists of 54 presentations that will include talks, audio dramas, interviews, and short videos.

In addition, a feature film entitled The Story of Jonah – A lesson in Courage and Mercy will be shown on the final day of the convention programme on Sunday.

“Each day, the morning and afternoon sessions will be introduced by music videos prepared specifically for the convention,” Hunguka said.

He said this year the local Witnesses branch has organised 59 conventions in 10 languages — Shona, Ndebele, English, Zimbabwe Sign Language, Chitonga, Venda, Chichewa, Swahili, Chinese and French.

Worldwide, there are over 8 million Witnesses while in Zimbabwe there are more than 48 800 organised in 1 350 congregations.
Attendance is free.

  2. “Be Courageous!”, is the theme of this years’ convention.
    JWs are pressured to “serve” the organization. Matt 6:24 Not doing so can result in fear and anxiety, since having faith and hope, is based on an organization that promises salvation as long as JWs “serve” the Watchtower through one’s “time, energy, and material possessions” ( Wt 2017/10) Called “Jehovah’s spirit-directed organization” and “Zion”, it is, in reality, a deceptive ploy to mislead honest-hearted ones and God’s anointed ones, seducing them into a false sense of “peace and security”. This ploy originates with the demonic spirit, Satan, who can appear as an “angel of light”. Satan and his ministers direct this organization – the fourth Beast of Daniel and Revelation’s two Beasts, to come against the anointed ones. 1 Thess 5:1-3;2 Cor 11:13-15; Rev 13:1,7,8,11,14-17; Dan 7:23,25

    JWs, who comprises your priesthood? Do you know who they are? This priesthood is found with the anointed ones, who are also God’s “Temple”/Zion. Isa 43:10; 1 Pet 2:5,9; 1 Cor 3:16,17; Eph 2:10,20-22 Yet, the elder body has been given authority by a “wicked slave” to rule over and disfellowship them. Matt 24:48-51; Rev 13:15 Don’t you find it rather incredible, that God’s chosen “holy ones” can be considered spiritually “dead” (disfellowshipped) for not accepting failed and false doctrine? THEY and those who seek the way of Truth, are the COURAGEOUS ONES to stand up to an elder body who acts as their spiritual judge, cutting them off from family and friends. John 14:6 Rom 14:4; Matt 5:10,11 What about yourselves? Do you rally behind this false priesthood/elder body and condemn God’s appointed priesthood, when they speak Truth in Christ? John 16:2; Acts 7:54-58; Luke 21:12 Will you continue to swallow lies; among them, of which are those called “new light”? Jer 23:32

    The elder body “standing” over/in the Temple/priesthood is the “disgusting thing” of Matt 24:15; 2 Thess 2:3,4; Dan 9:27; 11:31
    Please, JWs! Leave this darkness! Matt 24:16
    “Come out of her, my people”! Rev 18:4-8
