"They will all be taught by Jehovah." (John 6:45)
Just as Jesus received training from his Father, we can take advantage of the education that Jehovah is now providing. (Isaiah 54:13) Today, there are schools especially designed to equip us as Kingdom proclaimers. Doubtless, all of us have benefited in some way from the Theocratic Ministry School in our local congregations. Pioneers are privileged to attend the Pioneer Service School. Some have even attended the school a second time. Elders and ministerial servants have attended the Kingdom Ministry School to enhance their teaching ability and the service they render to fellow believers. Numerous single elders and ministerial servants have gone through the Ministerial Training School, which equips them to help others in the preaching work. And many of the brothers and sisters who have received foreign missionary assignments have been trained at the Watchtower Bible School of Gilead.
(Watchtower issue: 02/15/08, 4:7)
I seriously can't wait for this prophecy to have it's final fulfillment, after hearing yet another story about a child who was raped and killed, after being sold into prostitution by her own mother to pay a drug debt, (which is exactly the kind of moral degredation that occurs in society when the majority of the population has not been taught knowledge of Jehovah's laws) Here's two more related scriptures which apply to the same prophecy mentioned in Isaiah...
"This is what Jehovah has said against all my bad neighbors...it must occur that if they will without fail learn the ways of my people...they will also be built up in the midst of my people. But if they will not obey, I will also uproot that nation, uprooting and destroying [it],” is the utterance of Jehovah." (Jeremiah 12:16, 17)
"I will put my law within them, and in their heart I shall write it. And I will become their God, and they themselves will become my people.”
“And they will no more teach each one his companion and each one his brother, saying, ‘KNOW Jehovah!’ for they will all of them know me, from the least one of them even to the greatest one of them,” is the utterance of Jehovah." (Jeremiah 31:33, 34)
