She WATCHTOWER PousiisHEep SEMIMONTHLY By WATCH TOWER BIBLE © TRACT SOCIETY 117 Adams Street ~ + Brooklyn, N.Y., U.S.A. OFFICERS J. F, RuTHerrorD, President W. E. Van AmbBoreH, Secretary “And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of thy children.” ~ Isaiah 54:13. THE SCRIPTURES CLEARLY TEACH THAT JEHOVAH is the only true God, is from everlasting to everlasting, the Maker of heaven and earth and the Giver of life to his creatures; that the Logos was the beginning of his creation, and his active agent in the creation of all things; that the Logos is now the Lord Jesus Christ in glory, clothed with all power in heaven and earth, and the Chief Executive Officer of Jehovah. THAT GOD created the earth for man, created perfect man for the earth and placed him upon it; that man willfully dis- obeyed God’s law and was sentenced to death; that by reason of Adam’s wrong act all men are born sinners and without the right to Hfe. THAT JESUS was made human, and the man Jesus suffered death in order to produce the ransom or redemptive price for obedient ones of mankind; that God raised up Jesus divine and exalted him to heaven above every creature and above every name and clothed him with all power and authority. THAT JEHOVAH’S ORGANIZATION is a Theocracy called Zion, and that Christ Jesus is the Chief Officer thereof and is the right- ful King of the world; that the anointed and faithful followers of Christ Jesus are children of Zion, members of Jehovah's organiza- tion, and are his witnesses whose duty and privilege it is to testify to the supremacy of Jehovah, declare his purposes toward mankind as expressed in the Bible, and to bear the fruits of the kingdom before all who will hear. THAT THE WORLD has ended, and the Lord Jesus Christ has been placed by Jehovah upon his throne of authority, has ousted Satan from heaven and is proceeding to the establishment of God’s kingdom on earth. THAT THE RELIEF and blessings of the peoples of earth can come only by and through Jehovah's kingdom under Christ, which has now begun; that the Lord’s next great act is the destruction of Satan’s organization and the establishment of righteousness in the earth, and that under the kingdom the people of good will that survive Armageddon shall carry out the divine mandate to “fill the earth” with a righteous race.

IMPOSTORS Persons going about the country, and claiming to be in the truth and Jehovah’s witnesses, present themselves at different places and collect money and get other favors of the brethren. We warn the brethren everywhere to have nothing to do with these impostors. CONVENTION At New York City, June 23-25, a convention of Jehovah's witnesses will be held.
