Jehovah's Witnesses vs the Bible
Good Intensions Will Not Get you on the RIGHT ROAD!
It is important to realize that most of the Pastors and Teachers and people that teach Christianity doctrine are not deceiving people with Malicious Intent. They are simply passing on what has been taught to them, believing that it is the TRUTH. Many Catholic and Protestant and Mormonism and Jehovah's Witness have a Zeal for Elohim but is not based on biblical knowledge. Romans 10:1-5 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to Yahuah for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a Zeal of Elohim, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of Elohim's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of Elohim For Messiah is the end of the LAW for righteousness to every one that believeth. For Moses described the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. Deceived people are not even aware they are being misled unless they are confronted with the TRUTH. Tragically in life there is no Excuse and we must all seek the Truth or we will end up in what the bible calls HELL! I see the catholic believer like the so called bums of this world they choose a way of life that is not right because of their corrupt minds due to their wrong teachings and not seeking the TRUTH. And I write this to make you think!!!. Matthew 7:1-2 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Most people believe what I said about the bums and the Father says he will Judge them the Same.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Messiah.
BIBLE: Thessalonians II 1:8-9 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not Elohim, and that obey not the gospel of our Master Yahusha Messiah: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Yahuah, and from the glory of his power;
Revelation speaks of the Mother Church and her Daughters, the bible gives us a WARNING come out of her my people before you partakers of her SINS. The bible is very clear, it shows that man is a sinner and need a savior, and after we ask to be save we must change our mind and our way of life to the instructions of the Torah. The bible teaches that the torah is the light under your feet, and it guides your path. Matthew 7:14-15 Because Strait is the gate, and NARROW is the WAY, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the Whole World: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change (Feast Days) times and (Torah) Laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the Whole World: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had Two Horns (Catholic & Protestant) like a LAMB (Jesus is a Heathen Name), and he spake as a dragon. Notice that he like a LAMB (JESUS) but he speaks like a (DRAGON) He does not keep the LAW.
What is Worse-to be Insulted
Embarrassed of Deceived?
John 21:16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Master; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
Food is the word of Yahuah. Eat and be Full. Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Elohim.
Please search for the Truth before is to LATE, We have so many brothers and sister lost to Christianity, and Catholicism and other religion like Mormonism and Jehovah's Witness Share this web site with all your friend and family. I am not here to make friends by being political correct but to teach the truth in boldness. We read the Warning prophecy again in Malachi 4:5: "Behold I will send you Eliyah the prophet before the great and terrible day of Yahuah comes. And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers; lest I come and strike the earth with a Curse.. He gives us a Warning that the spirit of Eliyah is of truth and repentance. He is saying that if we go back to the Way of Abraham Isaac and Jacob he will not curse the Earth. These were Israelites that obey Torah.
The bible is clear on following one WAY and doesn't direct you to any other Way. In spite of the Catholic and the Protestant or Mormonism and Jehovah's Witness the well intent meaning of their doctrine and their experiences of being born again, our heavenly Holy Spirit comes to teach the truth through his WORD. The experience that bible speaks of is a changed experience to a Way of life. And when you belong to his Kingdom you must OBEY the KING. There is only one TRUTH, ONE WAY AND ONE KINGDOM. Matthew 12:25 And Yahusha knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every Kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or HOUSE divided against itself shall not stand:
Hosea 4:6-8 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy Elohim, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame. They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their INIQUITY (Law Breakers).
Jehovah's Witnesses vs the Bible
JW: Yahusha is the first created being of Jehovah God (Let God Be True. p,32)
Bible: John 8:58 Yahusha said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Revelation 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the First and the Last: Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith the Yahuah the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Yahuah of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no Elohim
JW: Yahusha was actually the incarnation of Michael the archangel: Messiah resumed the name Michael when He ascended to heaven (Your will be done on Earth, p, 316-7- New Heavens and New Earth, p30)
Bible: Hebrews 1:1-14 Elohim, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of Elohim worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O Elohim, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore Elohim even thy Elohim, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. And, Thou, Yahuah, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
JW: Yahusha Messiah arose from the grave as a spirit person, Jehovah allowing Him to materialize a different body in which to appear to His disciples (Your Will Be Done On Earth, p, 143 Make Sure Of all Things. 1953 ed, p, 314)
Bible: Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. John 20:20 And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Yahuah. John 20:25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Yahuah. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. John 20:27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. John 20:1-9 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Yahusha loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Yahuah out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
JW: The Holy Spirit is not a person, but rather the impersonal, active force of Elohim, (Let God Be True 2nd ed, p, 108. The Watchtower, June 1. 1952 p,24.)
Bible: John 14:16-17 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye Know Him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Acts 5:3-4 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Spirit, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto Elohim.
JW: There is no continued existence of the soul after death. Jehovah's Witnesses who die will eventually be recreated from Jehovah's memory t inhabits His kingdom (Make Sure Of All Things, 1953 ed, p,311)
Bible: Kings I 17:17 And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him. Kings I 17:18 And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of Elohim? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son? Kings I 17:19 And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed. Kings I 17:20 And he cried unto the Yahuah, and said, O Yahuah my Elohim, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son? Kings I 17:21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Yahuah, and said, O Yahuah my Elohim, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again. Kings I 17:22 And the Yahuah heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. Kings I 17:23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth. Kings I 17:24 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of Elohim, and that the word of the Yahuah in thy mouth is truth. Luke 7:11-17 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. And when the Yahuah saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. And there came a fear on all: and they glorified Elohim, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That Elohim hath visited his people. And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about. Luke 24:36-43 And as they thus spake, Yahusha himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet. And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them. Philippians 3:20-21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Master Yahusha Messiah: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. Corinthians I 15:39 -54
JW: Messiah blood shed on Calvary applies only to 144,000 Elite JWs ("the Israel of God") and not for the "great crowd" the remainder of JWs (Aid To Bible Understanding, p, 389)
Bible: Timothy I 2:5-6 For there is one Elohim, and one mediator between Elohim and men, the man Messiah Yahusha; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. John I 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. Corinthians II 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. Hebrews 2:9 But we see Yahusha, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of Elohim should taste death for every man.
JW: Doctrine of Burning in Hell where the wicked are tortured eternally after death is false (Make Sure of All Things, 1953 ed, pp,154-55)
Bible: Revelation 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before Elohim; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Matthew 13:41-42,49,50 Mark 9: 47-48.
The Small History and Disappointments of Jehovah Witness
Charles Taze Russell was born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, on February 16,1852. Trouble by various church doctrines, such as teaching of hell, he became a skeptic at age 17. In the 1870 he was exposed to teachings of William Miller, one of the originators of the Second Adventist movement, Miller had originally taught that Messiah would return in October, 1843. When this event failed, his followers continued to set New Dates. Each a complete failure as prophecy of "things to come." But the Millerites provided Charles with a religious denial of hell, and stimulating studies in end of the age prophecies. On December 18, 1894, Zion Watch Tower Tract Society became a publishing subsidiary of the Association, extending Charles's influence through works like Millennial Dawn and Studies in The Scriptures. By 1886 Russell had published The Divine Plan of the Ages, projecting that 1914 would witness ARMAGEDDON and the dawn of Messiah thousand year rule on earth. He also started in 1799 and that Messiah had returned in 1874. The dates later were changed when it didn't happen.
Here are more FALSE prediction from the Jehovah Witness: Did Yahusha really return to earth in October 1874? And did His kingly office date from April, 1878? Was Armageddon the Final world wide war, to happen in October, 1914? Or did Yahusha come back in 1914 and Armageddon take place in 1915? Or, was Armageddon to happen in 1916? 1918?1925?1975? WOW Each of this year the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, Better know as Jehovah's Witnesses, prepared their followers for a new world order that never MATERIALIZED. Tower has 100% Failure in their so called Prophet all predictions have been False, the closest predictions is that Christianity is also a False Religion. Just think not only they have the name wrong like Jehovah but they have False prophets..
HELL IS REAL
The answer can be found in a few excerpts, gleaned from their own publications! Let us keep in mind that whenever someone claims to be a prophet(ess) there is one way to tell if they are of Yahuah or Ba’al. Scriptures tells us the following:
Deut. 18:22, “When the prophet speaks in the Name of Yahuah and the word is not, or comes not, that is the word which Yahuah has not spoken. The Prophet has spoken it presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.
“The Finished Mystery” published in 1917, as volume 7 of the Millennial Dawn series. Formerly taught the Messiah's 2nd Advent was in Oct. of 1874! This same publication taught that the "Saints" resurrected in 1878 .This was taught for over 50 yrs (pp 54,.60, 68, 71,167, 368, 377, 386 & 395); and then discarded!
“Paradise Lost” pg 192, par. 30, shows that in 1917, the resurrection date of 1878 was changed to 1918! “The Finished Mystery” said YaHUaH (Creator) would destroy all the churches and their members in 1918, in a fearful revolution. Then they changed to 1927, telling of setting up the kingdom of Palestine--pg I28!! Look at pp.398, 402, 404, 405, 485, 513 & 515! It also says Eloah would destroy all the republics by a world-wide anarchy-pp I79, 2787 542!
In “Millions Now Living! Will Never Die” Judge Rutherford, pp 88-90 & 97, said Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, --and the Prophets would return in 1975. Judge Rutherford built a large house in San Dlego~CA, to entertain and shelter them after their arrival!!
The diagram on the right --> shows us how, “The Watchtower”, has been altering and changing dates, doctrines, and teachings for many years. The diagram taken from Wikipedia.
Marley Cole's book, ‘Jehovah's
Witnesses. the New World Society", says Charles T. Russell
was, "This millennium's foremost prophet."
What we should find interesting about the Watchtower, is that they speak out about paganism, such as the cross, yet their founder,
Charles T. Russell was a 33rd degree Mason. A known fact
about him is that he was fascinated with the occult and the Pyramids. Right next
to his grave, in North Hills Pittsburgh, is a small pyramid. The words,
“WatchTower Bible and Tract Society” is carved on this pyramid along with a
cross with a crown emblem. This same emblem can be found in Masonic Temples.
“The Finished Mystery“, pg 378, says Russell fulfilled Ezek. 2:5("a prophet among them").
This book, as a virtual commentary on the prophecies of Revelation and Ezekiel, is almost entirely discarded, today; and on pg 144, it declares, "The Watchtower and Tract Society is the greatest corporation in the world, because from the time of its organization, until now, the Lord has used it as His channel through which He makes known the "Glad Tidings" (truth?).
We should refute that claim! There is no possible way that the Watchtower can be Yahuah’s Channel of Truth,” the “way” of salvation, and that it teaches the Scriptural Truth.
We cannot reconcile the 1914 teaching, concerning the events of the 2nd Advent on these counts:
eye shall see Him." Also see: Matt.24:30-New World Bible.
2. It will be both visible and audible. (l Thess 4: 15-17)
3. Wicked are destroyed at 2nd Advent-(2 Thess .2:8).
4. It will be as it was when Lot left Sodom, and it was totally destroyed, except for him and his daughters. And, when Noah went into the ark; then the flood destroyed everyone and everything on the face of the earth, except for Noah and his family. These events were sudden and unexpected, only to the wicked-Lk.17:26-30 & Matt.24:36-39! Yahuah (Creator) warned His people and they listened and obeyed His warnings!
Let's look at the, “ Memorial Communion Service“:
1 Cor. l1 :26 say us, "As often as ye eat this bread and drink this cup, ye do shew (proclaim) the Master’s death, till He comes."
Why keep holding a memorial service each and every year? It only needs to be done once, and for all! According to the Watchtower, the Messiah’s work as Mediator and High Priest was finished in 1914! That would mean, that no one past 1914 would be saved. Not only is this teaching dangerous but it is contrary to what the Scriptures says.
Heb. 7:25, "Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto Eloah by Him, seeing He ever liveth (forever lives) to make intercession for them."
Setting dates for the 2nd Advent of the Messiah is not Scriptural; but, The Watchtower taught, from 1874 to the mid 1920's, that the Messiah came in 1874 - then changed it to 1914; and, that He was "invisibly present." But, if Yahuah was using The Watchtower as His "Channel of Truth," do you think He would allow it to go on teaching error for that long--almost 50 yrs? Scripture says, His coming is near, and the signs of His coming would indicate that! The GREEK word "parousia" means a visible (not 'invisible') presence. All of the signs come before the "parousia," and all of those living, will see and hear Him coming in the clouds; therefore, His second coming/advent could not have happened in 1870; or 1914, either!!!
Now, let's look at the LAW:
It is well understood that it's against the Law to worship false deities; to worship, or even bow down to graven images; to take His Name in vain (bringing his name nought); to dishonor our parents; to kill, or murder; to commit adultery, or fornication; to steal; to bear false witness against our neighbors; or to covet things of others. So, why is it that some folks want to do away with the whole Law, just because they cannot deal with the Sabbath of the 4th Commandment, which is at the center of the whole Law? Looking at the Watchtower book, “Enemies,” pg 68; we see that they say; "Therefore God gave His Law, through Moses, to the Israelites, and which applies to all who want to do right; and the first in order and first in importance of His Commandments, or fundamental Law, is this; to wit.---Ex.20:1-6."
What about verses 7-11? YaHUaH's Law never changes, because He never changes (Mal. 3:6) His Law points out the way to everlasting life. No creature (created being) will ever be given everlasting life, who willfully; that is intentionally (knowingly), violates (YaHUaH)'s Law!
It is a very serious thing to knowingly break one of Yahuah's Commandments. If you break one, you’ve broken them all (Rom. 5:12-14; Ex. 16:4-28; Gen.26:5; Isa. 56:2, 6; Acts 17:2, 4; 18:4, 11; 16:12.) Greeks/Gentiles/non-Jews, all went to hear the Word of Yahuah taught, on the Sabbath! Note: these were all, non-Jews! Now, please read the entire 8th verse of 2 Ptr.3; and do not leave out, or change, the 'as'; since, Yahuah is not bound by time or space, like we are! Let us consider the follwing words of the Messiah, Yahusha regarding the Commandments, “…but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens.” (Matthew 5:19)
Was Messiah created, first?The answer to this question has to be, NO! He was absolutely not created! He is eternal, and was preeminent (first-born) in the sense that Ephraim is called "firstborn," in Jer.31 :9; but, Reuben was actually Jacob's first-born son! Even Israel is called "My firstborn son," by Yahuah, in Ex. 4:22. These, all, had preeminence over the others! Jn. l :3, 14 & CoL. I: 16, 17 say everything was created by Him; eliminating Him as being created, since no created being can create anything! Col. l:15 & Ps. 89:27= the One who is preeminent. Also, Yahuah made David a "first-born", higher than the kings of the earth. David was not the eldest son. Actually, he was the youngest of many sons. Here, 'first-born' means he would have preeminence over all the other kings!
Did you know many illustrations within the Watchtower Publications have Subliminal Images? We can only show a few of them here. The following pictures were taken from “Revelation It’s Grand Climax at Hand” (1988 Pub. Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of N.Y., Inc.) pg. 159.
See the profile of a witches head?
Please notice the face inside the hand next to the thumb, and the pagan halo aove the man's head? Let us ponder on why do they continue to hide Subliminal Images within their illustrations?
We have only shown a few. There are many more. Some are very evil. When I first came across this, I showed some Jehovah Witnesses many more images that I found. The Awake and Watchtower publications are filled with these subliminal Images. Sadly, most of the Jehovah Witnesses denied seeing any of these images! I was mocked and made fun of.
Since names are`important and have great meaning let us look at the meaning of the name of Jehovah.Strong's #1943 tells us that hovah means: ruin, mischief. This name could not be the Creator's Name because we know His name means, to exist. (Exodus 3:14).
Today, when most people see the letter 'v' , they pronounce it as in the word violin but this is not the proper pronounciation. The letter 'v' is not very old. In Hebrew the letter 'v' makes the 'u' sound as in 'oo'. This is where we get the letter 'w' it is a double 'u'.
That is why we say the Creator's name as Yah-oo-ah and spell His name as Yahuah. We do not use the form Yahvah or even Yahuah (way). Please see Ha'Shem (The Name).
The Watchtower has proven to be a modern day false prophet! It is clear from the evidence above that the Watchtower is the present day false prophet and can't be Yahuah’s Channel of truth!
