Jehovah’s witnesses to stage campaign of hope for a better world
By Gabriel Chy Alonta
Anambra State will be one of the thousands of communities around the globe that will receive a special campaign focusing on the Bible’s hope for a better world, Orient Daily has learnt.
The worldwide campaign themed, “A Better World Is Near,” will hold in November and would feature distribution of a special edition of the Watchtower Magazine.
The Watchtower had been carrying the message about God’s kingdom for over 100 years and had remained one of the most widely translated and circulated magazines in the world.
Nigeria spokesman for the millennialist denomination, Olusegun Eroyemi said, “there is so much despair and nothing can be as refreshing as a message of hope. That is the central theme of Jesus’ Gospel – A better world is indeed near.
“Over 36 million printed copies of Watchtower Magazine will be distributed in 230 languages to communities in 240 lands around the globe, while the digital publication would be made available on various platforms in nearly 400 languages.
“The magazine addresses the age long “doomsday” question – “Is this world going to end?”. The Bible’s comforting answer may surprise many readers, while some religions had predicted an end of the world.
“The magazine reveals the Bible’s clear message: The promise of an end to injustice by quoting from the book of Psalms where it states that earth is here for ever and will never end.
“This positive message has been the hope of millions around the world and who have prayed for God’s kingdome to come”, the statement released by the Jehova witnesses revealed.
