The Convention 2021 of Jehovah’s Witnesses will answer 3 questions:
What is faith?
What can faith do for us?
How can we build our faith?
What is Faith?
Faith is something produced by the Holy Spirit from Jehovah God. God’s active force.
Faith is also part of the fruitage of God’s Holy Spirit. This means, if we have God’s Holy Spirit, we will have faith.
We can read in the Bible (God’s word): (Hebrews 11:1) Faith is the assured expectation of what is hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities that are not seen.
Faith is the conviction, that we will have the things we hoped for.
Faith is the assured expectation of what is hoped for
This does mean, that we have the conviction, that we will have the things we hope for.
Faith makes future things promised by God so real, that we firmly believe, that everything Jehovah said, will come true.
Faith is also the evident demonstration of realities that are not seen
What does this mean?
Mark Sanderson from the governing body of Jehovah’s Witnesses mentioned the example of a cell phone.
If we have a cell phone, we can call people from all over the world. But there are no wires. So we realize, that radio waves are real. Despite the fact, we don’t can see radio waves.
What helps to build true faith?
True Faith comes from a careful analysis. From an accurate knowledge. In the Bible we learn about God, about his name, about his promises which already came true. And the exciting promises for our future. Faith is also built and established by something else. And this is creation. If we see the night sky. Or if we see the complexity of the human eye. We can realize, that there must be a creator. This is a strong evidence.
We need real Faith to please God well
Faith is also essential to please God well. In the Bible we can read (Hebrews 11:6) Moreover, without faith it is impossible to please God well, for whoever approaches God must believe that he is and that he becomes the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him.
What faith is not
Faith is not only to believe, that God exist. Because even the demons have faith, that God exists. But Satan, the devil, and the demons don’t exercise real faith.
Real Faith means to trust Almighty God Jehovah. And to form an unbreakable friendship with Jehovah God.
And Faith is not simply hoping for something.
The Bible explains about Abraham, a faithful man, who was also a friend of Jehovah God: (Romans 4:20) But because of the promise of God, he did not waver in a lack of faith; but he became powerful by his faith, giving God glory
Convention Jehovah’s Witnesses 2021: theme Bible text
In the Bible text Romans 4:20 we can read, that Abraham became powerful by his faith. So, the theme text of the Convention 2021 of Jehovah’s Witnesses is Romans 4:20.
What is the power of Faith?
We can read in the Bible:
(Matthew 17:19, 20) Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said: “Why could we not expel it?” 20 He said to them: “Because of your little faith. For truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard grain, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
So, what is the power of faith? Jesus said: “… nothing will be impossible for you”.
Let’s consider some areas, which shows, how much power faith has:
Faith makes it possible to walk with Jehovah God
Faith opens up the privilege of of being able to walk with our wonderful and amazing God Jehovah.
For example the Bible says, that Noah walked with Almighty God. What was true for Noah, is also true for us.
Faith moves us to obey the commandments of God without hesitation
An example is Abraham. Even when Jehovah God asked Abraham to do things, which were very difficult. What does this show about the power of faith for us? We also can change things, what are difficult. Or even things we could not change on our own. Like if we have an addiction, which we could not successfully deal with on our own. That is the real power of Faith. This is faith in action.
Faith in the fulfillment of Jehovah’s promise moves us to preach God’s Kingdom
And this, even if it’s difficult. Jehovah’s Witnesses prove this. Even under persecution.
When people begin studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses, they may say, that they never will go preaching from house to house. But later, as they grew in Faith, they want to preach the wonderful things they had heard in the Bible. This is because of the power of faith. Faith moves them to action.
Faith moves us to act in ways, that bring blessings to us
People were going to Jesus to become healed. Because of their Faith, that Jesus could do this.
Today also. When we make sacrifices for Jehovah, because of our faith, we will be blessed. We receive amazing blessings. That is the power of faith.
(Mark 10:29, 30) Jesus said: “Truly I say to you, no one has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for my sake and for the sake of the good news 30 who will not get 100 times more now in this period of time—houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and fields, with persecutions—and in the coming system of things, everlasting life.
Faith helps us to win the struggle against the super human forces
(Ephesians 6:16) Besides all of this, take up the large shield of faith, with which you will be able to extinguish all the wicked one’s burning arrows.
Like a large shield, Faith in Jehovah God and his promises for the future, can shield us. From all the wicked one’s burning arrows. We can be completely protected. Through our Faith we have the power to do things, that protect us from harm.
Through real Phases we can succeed in temptations. And can get rid of wrong thoughts.
Our prayers will be heard and answered
Faith moves us, to trust, that our prayers will be heard and answers. If our prayers are in harmony with the will of Jehovah, Jehovah God will answer our prayers.
(Mark 11:24) This is why I tell you, all the things you pray and ask for, have faith that you have received them, and you will have them.
So, Faith is powerful. Faith has real power to make things, that seem impossible to man, become realities for people who have faith in Jehovah.
And Jehovah is helping us to develop real Faith through solid evidence, accurate knowledge and his Holy Spirit, his active force.
How can we build up Faith?
The Convention 2021 from Jehovah’s Witnesses can help us to build and strengthen our Faith.
The Convention 2021 of Jehovah’s Witnesses “Powerful by Faith!”jkhghj will come with many Videos and even a Feature Bible Drama.
How important is faith for Christians today
Jeffrey Jackson from the governing body explained how important faith is for Christians today.
Why do Jehovah’s Witnesses choose Faith as the theme of the Convention 2021? Because we need strong Faith to deal successfully with our present trials. And our trials in our nearby future.
Jesus assured his disciples (Matthew 17:20) He said to them: “Because of your little faith. For truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard grain, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
What does this show? This shows, that Faith enables us to do things we could never imagine, to do on our own. For Christians faith is essential.
And God even commands us to have faith
We can read this in the Bible:
(1 John 3:23) Indeed, this is his commandment: that we have faith in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he gave us a commandment.
And in the Bible book of Hebrew we can read:
(Hebrews 11:6) Moreover, without faith it is impossible to please God well, for whoever approaches God must believe that he is and that he becomes the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him.
Real faith is essential to get everlasting life
(John 6:40) For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day.”
Those exercising faith can be certain of receiving everlasting life.
(John 3:36) The one who exercises faith in the Son has everlasting life; the one who disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him.
It is clear, that it is essential that we build and remain Faith. In order to get everlasting life and to receive Jehovah’s blessing.
(Romans 1:17) For in it God’s righteousness is being revealed by faith and for faith, just as it is written: “But the righteous one will live by reason of faith.”
All who show real faith, will be rewarded by Jehovah. Based in our faith in the ransom of Jesus Christ, Jehovah God forgive our sins. And grants us a righteous standing before him. And in Armageddon God’s people will be protected.
Do we need to strengthen our faith, if we have already large measure of real Faith?
Many Jehovahs Witnesses have already a large measure of real faith. Jeffrey Jackson from the governing body of Jehovah’s Witnesses quoted Colossians 1:3, 4. Where we can read:
(Colossians 1:3, 4) We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and the love you have for all the holy ones
But constant pressure from Satan and the demons, this world and our own imperfection can weaken and tear down our Faith.
Purpose of the Convention 2021 from Jehovah’s Witnesses
The purpose of the Convention 2021 from Jehovah’s Witnesses is to strengthen our Faith. We learn how to cultivate strong Faith. How to exercise it and to maintain it.
