John 3:16 “For Yehowah loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, Yehohshua, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life”.
The name of God in Hebrew is Yehowah. The name of the Son of God, The Lord Jesus Christ, in Hebrew is Yehohshua.
The world is in darkness, but look!
Isaiah 9:2 The people who were walking in the darkness have seen a great light. As for those dwelling in the land of deep shadow, light has shone on them. You need only watch this two part video drama about Yehohshua to understand what is to come.
If you will exercise faith, the hope of eternal life is a real possibility for you.
Psalms 37:29 The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.
Our hope is that you will live and have a wonderful life even now.
Don’t give up hope because of a darkened world, it was foretold to happen in the Bible.
Isaiah 60:2 For look! darkness will cover the earth and thick gloom the nations; But on you Yehowah will shine, and on you his glory will be seen.
Yes, you will shine and people will ask you the reason for the hope in you.
1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Christ as Lord in your hearts, always ready to make a defense before everyone who demands of you a reason for the hope you have, but doing so with a mild temper and deep respect.
This is the beginning of your life with the True God, Yehowah.
Yehowah is God’s Name. In Hebrew, the divine name appears as four consonants, . Those four Hebrew characters—transliterated YHWH—are known as the Tetragrammaton. Yehohshua is the name of the Son of God in Hebrew. It is the name above every other name. (Philippians 2:9) He is the first person ever created when no one else existed but God.

If you want to know what God is like, he is like Yehohshua. The Son of God is like his Father, he is like him, but not him. When you see a human father and son, and the way the son seems to mirror the father, you then understand God and Yehohshua. Remember that God loves you and Yehohshua loves you and Yehowah’s Witnesses love you.
If there is anything you need to understand, pray about it using God’s name Yehowah.
Always approach Yehowah and end your prayer with “in Yehohshua’s name”. This is how true Christians pray.
Example: “Father, I approach you in the name of your Son, Yehohshua”.
and then when you are finished talking with him.
Example: “Thank you Father, in the name of Yehohshua, amen.”
Just be natural and understand it is important to pray in Yehohshua’s name.
Before long it will be quite natural to use the name Yehohshua when praying.
Yehohshua said, ask anything in my name and I’ll do it. John 14:14
Yehohshua also said “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Exercise faith in God; exercise faith also in me. John 14:1
Even if you have never prayed to Yehowah before, have faith, he is the most loving Father possible. He will tell Yehohshua if there is something you need. This is the Kingdom arrangement.
May God’s blessing be upon you and may his holy spirit guide you into all the truth. Then you may be baptized as one of Yehowah’s Witnesses.
Treasure this time.

Information About Your Prayer of Dedication and Baptism
These are the final two steps noted above.
1 Peter 3:21 Baptism, which corresponds to this, is also now saving you (not by the removing of the filth of the flesh, but by the request to God for a good conscience), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Pray to Yehowah and tell him you want to dedicate yourself to him and have a clean conscience.
This is known as your prayer of dedication.
The Greek word baʹpti·sma (baptism) signifies “the processes of immersion, submersion and emergence,” according to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words.
You must be completely immersed in water and answer two questions.
The first question is, “On the basis of the sacrifice of Yehohshua, have you repented of your sins and dedicated yourself to Yehowah to do his will?”
The second question is, “Do you understand that your dedication and baptism identify you as one of Yehowah’s Witnesses in association with God’s spirit-directed organization?”
