THE PURPOSE OF THIS MAGAZINE, The Watchtower, is to honor Jehovah God, the Supreme Ruler of the universe. Just as watchtowers in ancient times enabled a person to observe developments from afar, so this magazine shows us the significance of world events in the light of Bibleprophecies. It comforts people with the good news that God’s Kingdom, which is a real government in heaven, will soon bring an end to all wickedness and transform the earth into a paradise. It promotes faith in Jesus Christ, who died so that we might gain everlasting life and who is now ruling as King of God’s Kingdom. This magazine has been published by Jehovah’s Witnesses continuously since 1879 and isnonpolitical. It adheres to the Bible as its authority.
This publication is not for sale. It is provided as part of a worldwide Bible educational work supported by voluntary donations. Unless otherwise indicated, Scripture quotations are from the modern-language New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures—With References.

PURPOSE OF STUDY ARTICLES
STUDY ARTICLE 1 PAGES 8-12 Some peoplementioned in the Bible are good examples for us, but they may also serve as warning examples. This article will help us to examine Solomon from both standpoints. What can we learn from him that will help us live as Christians? STUDY ARTICLE 2 PAGES 13-17 There is a powerful force in the universe that can guide us successfully through life in this wicked world. What is it, why should we want to beguided by it, and what can we do to benefit fully from its influence? STUDY ARTICLES 3, 4 PAGES 18-26 Many servants of God in the past were filled with holy spirit. In what ways did God’s spirit operate upon them? Studying how Jehovah directed them will be of great encouragement to us in our service.

When I was born in the southern United States in 1928, segregation ofwhites and blacks was the law. Breaking it could lead to imprisonment or worse.
