Hi Menrov,

It sure appears that way. I think the blood issue is the same way also. They see a mountain of legal issues if they were to ever relent from their position. So they trade the lives of the R&F for their place. (Jn 11:47-48)

I think he was talking about old style gas heaters that had a series of burners fed by jets of gas.

Hi Bobcat

Jesus said he was the light.

How do you hide a tree? In amongst many other trees.

How do you hide a light? In amongst many other lights.

That's what it sounds like to me. And when you look at the old Watchtower cover with it's lighthouse you see the light moves.

Look at the end of my video - the light or the head turns from one direction to another.

Are you running or are you walking?

There are many who are walking just fine, but for those who are running, it may seem to them that the ones who are walking are in a stationary progression.(paused state).

Don't think your progress has not went without observation.
