THE SCRIPTURES CI,EARLY TEACHTHAT JEHOVAH s the only true God, Is from everlasting toeverlasting, the l~laker of heaven and earth and the Giver of lifeto his creatures ; that the Loges was the beginning of his creation,and his active agent in the creation of all things; that the Logesis now the Lord Jesus Christ in glory, clothed with all power Inheaven and earth, and the Chief Executive Officer of Jehovah.THAT GOD created the earth for man, created perfect manfor the earth and placed him upon it; that man willfully dis-obeyed God’s law and was sentenced to death; that by reason ofAdam’s wrong act all men are born sinners and without the rightto life.THAT JESUS was made human, and the man Jesus suffereddeath in order to produce the ransom or redemptive price forobedient ones of mankind; that God raised up Jesus divine andexalted him to heaven above every creature and above every nameand clothed him wlth all power and authority.THAT JEHOVAH’S ORGANIZATION s a Theocracy called Zion,and that Christ Jesus is the Chief Officer thereof and is the right-ful King of the world ; that the anointed and faithful followers ofChrist Jesus are children of Zion, members of Jehovah’s organiza-tion, and are his witnesses whose duty and privilege it is to testifyto the supremacy of Jehovah, declare his purposes toward mankindas expressed tn the Btble, and to bear the fruits of the kingdombefore all who wlll hear.THAT THE WORLDhas ended, and the Lord Jesus Christ hasbeen placed by Jehovah Upon his throne of authority, has oustedSatan from heaven and Is proceeding to the establishment ofGod’s kingdom on earth.THAT THE RELIEF and blessings of the peoples of earth cancome only by and through Jehovah’s kingdom under Christ, whichhas now begun; that the Lord’s next great act is the destructionof Satan’s organization and the establishment of righteousness inthe earth, and that under the kingdom the people of good will thatsurvive Armageddon shall carry out the divine mandate to "fillthe earth" with a rigbteous race.ITS MISSION

Jesus and hIs apostles usedreal red wine m symbol of his blood, and the anomted remnantshould follow their lead. A report of the celebration should bemade to the Society aa instructed in the
