At a time when the desire for better government is on the minds of people the world over, Jehovah’s Witnesses will launch an international campaign to bring attention to a universal solution. The Witnesses will feature a special edition of The Watchtower magazine, available in over 780 languages in print and online, with the theme “What Is God’s Kingdom?”
Local volunteers from Las Vegas, Nevada, will distribute this special-edition magazine during the month of September.
“I am excited to share in this campaign because I know it can bring so much comfort and hope to others,” said Michelle Baker, a resident of Las Vegas. “The world is facing greater problems every day, [and] people need a government that they can trust to solve these problems. God’s government is the solution to the problems.”
Throughout the centuries, millions of Jesus’ followers have prayed the words “thy Kingdom come” but wonder what that Kingdom is, what it will accomplish and when it will come. To answer those age-old questions, the Witnesses’ special-edition magazine will reference key Bible passages. The clear and simple explanations have been designed to appeal to both new and experienced Bible readers.
“God’s Kingdom is the government we are longing to see,” said Tory Jaramillo, spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “The commission from Jesus Christ was to share the good news about that Kingdom and how it will benefit all communities by providing real solutions to environmental, medical, and social issues. Understanding exactly what the Kingdom will do is expounded upon in this special issue of The Watchtower.”
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jehovah’s Witnesses distributed millions of copies of this special-edition magazine through letters, even sending copies to thousands of government officials worldwide. Now that they have returned to their door-to-door public ministry post-pandemic, this will be the first in-person campaign where they will have the opportunity to discuss the important and very timely subject with their neighbors.
A free digital copy of this special issue of The Watchtower, as well as information about the activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses, is available at jw.org. The Witnesses’ site offers practical Bible-based content for people of all ages and beliefs in 1,081 languages.
