I was compelled to write this after having some fellowship with a dear brother I have been getting to know. He informed me that he had recently been studying with those indoctrinated through the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society. I warned him about the deficiencies in their teachings and wanted to expound on them here for any others who may be targeted by them for proselytizing.
A letter to those who follow, teach or is being exposed to the teachings of The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, which refer to themselves as the “Jehovah’s Witnesses.” This is a serious matter of which there could be dire and eternal consequences. Please take your time to read and verify what I have written here and may the Almighty GOD grant you courage by His grace to lay hold on the Truth forsaking all else. The Almighty GOD is able to preserve the record of His word so that we can know the truth of His testimony for our salvation. The reason why the Holy Bible ends with a warning from GOD not to change any meaning in His record by adding or taking away from it is because He knew the devil would tempt many to bear false witness. Unfortunately, many have not heeded this warning and have brought the judgement of GOD upon themselves. Please do not become partakers with them.
18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelations 22:18-19 NKJV)
I am going to share the words of the prophecy John spoke as recorded in Revelations chapter one. The one who is speaking unto John is Christ the King who the spirit of anti-Christ has tried to strip of the divinity He shared with GOD in the beginning and now again with GOD since His triumphant resurrection. I plead with you to accept the prophecy as written just like the warning I cited earlier. If you add to it or take away from it, you are cursing your soul.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” 9 I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, 11 saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”
12 Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. 14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; 15 His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; 16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” (Revelations 1:8-18 NKJV)
I have highlighted the words spoken to John by the Almighty GOD in bold text to assist you in recognizing who is speaking. The one in these verses who identifies himself as the “Almighty” also says he was dead and now lives again for evermore. This chapter begins by proclaiming that Revelations is the testimony of Jesus Christ and no honest person who has read the bible would deny that Jesus Christ is the one which was dead but raised again with the keys to hell and death. This testimony that John is giving agrees with the testimony of Christ given by other Holy men throughout the bible. Christ the Almighty put on the form of a man that He might redeem man. During the time He walked as a man He had to shed some of His glory so that He could taste death for all men.
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. 10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying: “I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.” 13 And again: “I will put My trust in Him.” And again: “Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.” 14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. (Hebrews 2:9-15 NKJV)
The prophecy of Christ in Psalms affirms that He is the GOD of our salvation.
18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them. 19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. 20 He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto God the Lord belong the issues from death. (Psalms 68:18-20 KJV)
After Christ finished His work of saving men from death, He returned to His state of full deity which He had before the creation of the world.
4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. (John 17:4-5 NKJV)
Chapter 1 in the book of John ties it all together undeniably if you will humbly except the truth by faith.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-14 NKJV)
Holy Scripture cannot make it any plainer. If you look at the Greek, it says the Word was Theos and became flesh. The Greek designation for Theos through out the bible refers to the Almighty GOD. This letter I have written to you is the grace of GOD for your deliverance from the deception and darkness of the devil trying to keep you captive from your inheritance in Christ. It is easy for men to be deceive when they rely on their intellect instead of their heart which is where the Lord writes His words and laws. Charles T. Russel, the founder of The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society (the same organization which refers to themselves as Jehovah’s Witnesses) was a false prophet and the errors of his teachings are still prevalent in the organization to this day. If you have joined yourself to this organization, you need to know that your deception is making a comfortable living for a lot of people. The bible tells us that the love of money is the root of all evil. The evil deception regarding Jesus Christ being an angel, along with the other false doctrines and prophecies of The Watch Tower Track Society are perpetuated by a love for money, selfish gain by those in power.
It is true that beings created directly by GOD are referred to as His sons. Just like the angels Gabriel and Michael. The Word became incarnate as the Christ and is called the Son of GOD because He was made directly by GOD being born of a virgin birth by the power of the Spirit. The first man Adam was a son of GOD, but Adam is still dead. Christ is the first son of GOD risen from the dead. All of us who take up the cross of Christ to be born again by the will of GOD are awarded sonship through the life of Christ and become heirs of GOD’s kingdom. Lucifer, a fallen angel made like unto Gabriel and Michael, lost his sonship and place in GOD’s kingdom because he rebelled against GOD, and now he wants to keep you from entering the glorious sonship which Christ has secured for you. Only GOD appoints offices in His Kingdom, and He has appointed those born again through Christ as sons and royal priest to serve in His house.
1Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious. The Chosen Stone and His Chosen People 4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, precious, And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.” 7 Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone,” 8 and “A stone of stumbling And a rock of offense.” They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. 9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. (1st Peter 2:1-10 NKJV)
Revelations gives a vision of this royal priesthood in the heavens after Christ has received them to glory.
13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” 14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Revelations 7:13-17 NKJV)
Those born again through faith in the true testimony of Christ have a calling and inheritance different than the 144,000 chosen from the tribes of Israel. Like the Levitical priesthood of the old testament, the redeemed of Christ have GOD for their inheritance. As Christ has said,
“1 Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. (John 14:1-3 NKJV)
Only holy priest can live in the house of GOD. This is the true gospel of Christ as revealed by the Holy Spirit of Truth, not by men who love this world, and which are deceived by the god of this world. He that can receive this word… repent and be cleansed for your priestly service. Surrender your life to Christ and be cleansed by the blood of the lamb and acknowledge that GOD Almighty was in Christ calling the world to reconciliation and life anew.
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:17-21 NKJV)
This is now your time to awake from the deception of an organization founded upon anti-Christ doctrine, to keep you from your inheritance, and to make merchandise of you. Stop sowing that false doctrine into your heart from the Watch Tower publications or anything that comes from the ministers of the so-called Jehovah Witness organization. I have just given you the true witness of JEHOVAH (YAHWEH the Holy GOD of Israel). The New World Translation Bible which came out in its entirety in 1961 has been compromised by the leaven of the wicked one. The King James bible of 1611 or the modern New King James Bible is much more aligned with the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts. Resources from the Watch Tower Track Society claim that the New World Translation is more reliable but of course they would since it was produced to support their doctrine. If you will utilize bible resources like Biblehub.com which provides many different bible translations, as well as Hebrew and Greek dictionaries, along with a concordance, you will see for yourself that the NWT contains many errors. If you receive the knowledge just shared with you and take action, it will mean big changes for you, but most of all it will mean life. Remember the words of Christ.
34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ 37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. (Matthew 10:34-38 NKJV)
This is what Abraham had to do to obtain the promise of GOD when he exercised faith instead of the wisdom and reasoning of man, to the point he was willing to sacrifice his son.
One last but especially important truth you need to know. The Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available for all those born again in Christ, even unto this day. The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society teaches that the gift of the Holy Spirit and the powers of the Holy Spirit went away with the first Apostles of the bible, but that also is a lie meant to rob you of the provision of GOD. Christ the Almighty new that we would need His spirit of truth to navigate these dark times along with His power to overcome the wiles of the devil. I will close with the request of Christ to the Father, captured in the book of John, which includes the full inheritance requested for everyone which believes the true testimony of Christ.
17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. 20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. 24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” (John 17:17-26 NKJV)
This post was a bit longer compared to what I normal put up however I needed to thoroughly cover the key truths illuminated here. Some of what I have covered in this post is seldom if ever taught in Christian fellowships, which is why many become vulnerable to false doctrines. That which is seen is temporal but the things which are not unseen are eternal. Don’t let your lives get so consumed with this temporal world that you don’t delve into the beautiful things which awaits eternally, prepared by a loving GOD. Time spent searching the things of GOD is well rewarded in knowledge and understanding which leads to more joy, peace, and hope. Blessings!
Plenty people are definitely vulnerable to false doctrine. I believe it is a combination of fleshy desire, because some want to hear what appeals to them;
also, biblical illiteracy which is often a choice. There is also a lack of discernment from the Holy Spirit. It is indeed a very dangerous place to be.
Thank you for reading and taking the time to share your thoughts. I agree, that those things can make us vulnerable to deception.
Amen D. for this Powerful Message and warning from the WTS. They need Jesus!
