Joy !
2003, our most exciting year ever, brought us a deepening knowledge of
Bible-based principle, and great improvements in health for Ward thanks to
an apparently God-directed nutritional supplement regime. Coral calcium was
a topic on the website this year, due in no small part to the health benefits
it claims and demonstrates. Our overall nutrition has also been improving
thanks to Jehovah, with vitamins and minerals (mainly calcium, magnesium, and
vitamin D) taking a more prominent role, along with a gradual change in eating
choices towards more natural foods like organic milk, nuts, seeds, and fruits.
Coral calcium has helped both Ward and Anne to great gains in overall health.
Praise Jehovah for the difference between science and medicine!

The Year of our Lord 2004

Proverbs 8:22-31
  Proverbs refers here to the pre-human existence of Jesus, prior to the creation of the universe.

  Verse 30 identifies wisdom as the master worker who helped Jehovah create all things.

  This master worker is `female' in the original Hebrew, and is wisdom personified according to the context of chapter 8. So we see that wisdom was created as the first of Jehovah's creations, was female in character, and assisted in the creation of all other things. Colossians 1:15 says ``he is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation'', referring to Jesus Christ. The scripture continues: ``by means of him all things were created in the heavens and on the earth''.

  Angels are generally considered to be female in nature, in the sense that they are creations rather than creators. So wisdom, as the first and greatest angel, is referred to as female. When the angels sinned and took human form in order to marry earthly women (Genesis 6:1-4), they thus committed a disgraceful folly, in the sense that they were female by their very nature.

  Since angels are not referred to generally as having any gender (other than in the spiritual sense just discussed), it is clear that both men and women may go to heaven to rule as angelic kings with Christ. Because they recognize Christ as Lord and Master, they also become female in this sense. They are the bride of Christ.
