**History of the Jehovah’s Witnesses**

Sixty years ago the Jehovah’s Witnesses numbered fewer than 100,000. Now there are several million of them around the world. They don’t have churches; they have “Kingdom Halls” instead. Their congregations are small, usually numbering less than 200. Most Witnesses used to be Catholics or Protestants. Let’s look at their history, because that will help us understand their unique doctrines.

The sect now known as the Jehovah’s Witnesses was started by Charles Taze Russell, who was born in 1852. He was raised a Congregationalist, but at the age of 17 he tried to convert an atheist to Christianity and ended up being converted instead—not to outright atheism, but to agnosticism. Some years later he went to an Adventist meeting, was told that Jesus would be back at any time, and got interested in the Bible.

The leading light of Adventism had been William Miller, a flamboyant preacher who predicted that the world would end in 1843. When it didn’t, he “discovered” an arithmetical error in his eschatological calculations and said it would end in 1844. When his prediction again failed, many people became frustrated and withdrew from the Adventist movement, but a remnant, led by Ellen G. White, went on to form the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

It was this diminished Adventism which influenced Russell. In 1879, he began the Watch Tower—what would later be known as the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, the teaching organ of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. In 1908 he moved its headquarters to Brooklyn, where it has remained ever since.
Unusual Doctrines
Russell taught his followers the nonexistence of hell and the annihilation of unsaved people (a doctrine he picked up from the Adventists), the nonexistence of the Trinity (he said only the Father, Jehovah, is God), the identification of Jesus with Michael the Archangel, the reduction of the Holy Spirit from a person to a force, the mortality (not immortality) of the soul, and the return of Jesus in 1914.

When 1914 had come and gone with no Jesus in sight, Russell modified his teachings and claimed Jesus had, in fact, returned to Earth, but that his return was invisible. His visible return would come later, but still very soon. It would result in the final conflict between God and the Devil—the forces of good and the forces of evil—in which God would be victorious. This conflict is known to Witnesses as the battle of Armageddon, and just about everything the Witnesses teach centers around this doctrine.
Russell died in 1916 and was succeeded by “Judge” Joseph R. Rutherford. Rutherford, born in 1869, he never was a real judge, but took the title because, as an attorney, he substituted at least once for an absent judge. At one time he claimed Russell was next to Paul as an expounder of the gospel, but later, in an effort to have his writings supplant Russell’s, he let Russell’s books go out of print. It was Rutherford who coined the slogan, “Millions now living will never die.” By it he meant that some people alive in 1914 would still be alive when Armageddon came and the world was restored to a paradise state.

In 1931 he changed the name of the sect to the Jehovah’s Witnesses, which he based on Isaiah 43:10 (“‘You are my witnesses,’ is the utterance of Jehovah, ‘even my servant whom I have chosen,’” New World Translation). As an organizer, he equipped missionaries with portable phonographs, which they took door to door along with records of Rutherford. They didn’t have to say much when they came calling; all they had to do was put on Rutherford’s record. He displayed a marked hatred for Catholicism on his radio program and in the pamphlets he wrote. Later his successors tempered the sect’s anti-Catholicism, but Awake! and The Watchtower still carry anti-Catholic articles every few issues.
Rutherford said that in 1925 Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the prophets would return to Earth, and for them he prepared a mansion named Beth Sarim in San Diego, California. He moved into this mansion (where he died in 1942). The Watchtower Society quietly sold Beth Sarim years later to cover up an embarrassing moment in their history, namely another failed prophecy.

Trained to Give Testimonies

Rutherford was succeeded by Nathan Homer Knorr, who was born in 1905 and died in 1977. Knorr got rid of the phonographs and insisted that the missionaries be trained in door-to-door evangelism techniques. The Witnesses now have a reputation as skillful deliverers of “personal testimonies.”
Since the Bible, as preserved through the centuries, did not support the peculiar doctrines of the Witnesses, Knorr chose an anonymous committee to produce the New World Translation. By means of former Witnesses, the names of the five members of the translation committee eventually came to light. Four of the five members completely lacked credentials as Bible translators, and the fifth studied non-biblical Greek for only about two years.

The New World Translation was produced because it buttresses Witnesses’ beliefs through inaccurate renderings. For example, to prove that Jesus was only a creature, not God, the New World Translation’s rendering of John 1:1 concludes this way: “and the Word was a god” [italics added]. Every other translation, Catholic and Protestant—not to mention the Greek original—has “and the Word was God.”

What Happened to Armageddon?

Knorr was succeeded as head of the Jehovah’s Witnesses by Frederick Franz. He had been the Witnesses’ leading theologian. For some years the sect’s magazines had been predicting that Armageddon would occur in 1975. When it didn’t, Franz had to find an explanation.
Witnesses believe that Adam was created in 4026 B.C. and that human beings have been allotted 6000 years of existence until Armageddon and the beginning of the millennium. This figure is based on a “creative week” in which each of six days is equal to 1,000 years, with the Sabbath or seventh day being the beginning of the millennium. Simple arithmetic gives 1975 as the year Armageddon would arrive. Franz explained that Armageddon would actually come 6000 years after Eve’s creation. But when 1975 came and went, the Witnesses had to “adjust” their chronology to cover up a failed prediction. They accomplished this by maintaining that no one knew exactly how long after Adam’s creation Eve came on the scene. Franz said that it was months—even years. Hence he was able to “stretch” the 1975 date to some indeterminate time in the future.
When the final battle does occur—remember, it was supposed to be during the lifetime of “millions” of people alive in 1914—Jehovah will defeat Satan and the elect will go to heaven to rule with Christ. But, following a literal interpretation of the number mentioned in Revelation, chapters 7 and 14, only 144,000 are among the elect. They will go to heaven as spirit persons (without resurrected bodies). The remaining faithful (Jehovah’s Witnesses), who are known as Jonadabs, will live forever on a renewed, paradise Earth in resurrected bodies. The unsaved will cease to exist at all, having been annihilated by Jehovah.

Franz was succeeded as president of the Watchtower in 1993 by Milton Henschel, who has continued the aggressive evangelization tactics of his predecessors. In 1995 the Watchtower quietly changed one of its major prophetic doctrines. Until this point, they had maintained that the generation alive in 1914 would not pass from the scene until Armageddon occurred. Now that this generation has almost entirely died out they had to change their doctrine. Now, the Watchtower says that Armageddon will simply occur “soon,” and it is no longer tied to a particular, literal generation of people.

How They Make Converts

Most religions welcome converts, and the Witnesses’ very reason for existence is to make them. To accomplish this they follow several steps.

First they try to get a copy of one of their magazines into the hands of a prospective convert. They lead off with a question designed to tap into universal concerns such as, “How would you like to live in a world without sickness, war, poverty, or any other problem?” If the prospect is willing to speak with them, they arrange what’s known as a “back call”—that is, they return in a week or so for more discussions. This can be kept up indefinitely.
At some point the missionaries invite the prospect to a Bible study. This is not the usual sort of Bible study, where passages are examined in light of context, original word meaning, relevance to other verses in Scripture, etc. Instead, this “Bible study” is really an exposition of Witness doctrine by means of Watchtower literature. Simple questions are presented in the literature which are derived directly from the text. The answers, therefore, are readily discernible, making the prospective convert feel spiritually astute. If he progresses well, he’s invited to a larger Bible study, which may be held at a Kingdom Hall.
About this time he’s invited to attend a Sunday service. At the Kingdom Hall, the prospect hears a Witness discuss a few verses of Scripture and how those verses can be explained to non-Witnesses or be used to “refute” standard Christian doctrines such as the Trinity, hell, the immortality of the soul, etc.

Sharing Techniques..

The prospective convert gets still more of this if he proceeds to the next step, which consists of going to meetings on Wednesday or Thursday nights. At those meetings Witnesses trade stories, explain how they’ve done that week in going door-to-door, figure out better ways to get the message across, and log their hours. (Every month each Kingdom Hall mails to the headquarters in Brooklyn a detailed log of activities.)

If the prospect goes through all these steps, he’s ready for admission to the sect. That involves baptism by immersion and agreeing to work actively as a missionary Witnesses will typically spend 60-100 hours each month in their evangelizing work.

Life as a Witness...

Although not every Witness can put in so many hours, every Witness is expected to do what he can by way of missionary work. There is no separate, ordained ministry. Their sect operates no hospitals, orphanages, schools, colleges, or social welfare agencies. From their perspective it will all disappear in a few years anyway, so they don’t expend their energies in these areas.

Jehovah’s Witnesses live under a strict regimen. They may be “disfellowshipped” for a variety of reasons, such as attending a Catholic or Protestant church or receiving a blood transfusion. Disfellowshipping is the sect’s equivalent of excommunication. A disfellowshipped Witness may attend a Kingdom Hall, but he is not allowed to speak to anyone, and no one may speak to him. This applies even to his family, who may only communicate with him as much as absolutely necessary.

They recognize the legitimacy of no governmental authority, since they believe all earthly authority is of Satan. They will not serve in the military, salute the flag, say the Pledge of Allegiance, vote, run for office, or serve as officials of labor unions.

No matter how peculiar their doctrines, they deserve to be complimented on their single-minded zeal. However, as Paul might have said concerning them.

"My friends, how I wish with all my heart that my own people might be saved! How I pray to God for them! 2 I can assure you that they are deeply devoted to God; but their devotion is not based on true knowledge. 3 They have not known the way in which God puts people right with himself, and instead, they have tried to set up their own way; and so they did not submit themselves to God's way of putting people right. 4 For Christ has brought the Law to an end, so that everyone who believes is put right with God. . (Rom. 10:1-4).

If a believer/Christian still lies, steals or commits/manifests sinful living, he/she only needs to *understand* {through consistent study of Jesus Christ finished works from a sound teacher} his/her *identity in Christ Jesus* to stop yielding/submitting to his/her flesh
thus
"His name shall be called JESUS because He will deliver his brothers and sisters from their sin"
{Matthew 1:21}
"So Jesus was saying to the Jews who *had believed Him*, “If you abide in My word [continually obeying My teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly My disciples. 32 And you will know the truth [regarding salvation], and the truth will set you free [from the penalty of sin]."

"Now My soul is troubled and deeply distressed; what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour [of trial and agony]’? But it is for this [very] purpose that I have come to this hour [this time and place]. 28 [Rather, I will say,] ‘Father, glorify (honor, extol) Your name!’” Then a voice came from heaven saying, “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again."

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us, 2 [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]."

One of the *achievements* of Our God and Savior Jesus Christ for those who *believe* in Him as *God and Lord*;

"Although He was a Son [who had never been disobedient to the Father], He learned [active, special] obedience through what He suffered. And having been made perfect [uniquely equipped and prepared as Savior and retaining His integrity amid opposition], He became the source of eternal salvation [an eternal inheritance] to all those who obey Him, being designated by God as High Priest according to the order of
Melchizedek."

The Holy Spirit who used His *grace* to *give us eternal life/salvation/redemption* uses the same grace to keep us *holy*, *righteous*, *self-controlled* and *manifesting his fruits(love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, self-control, generosity, faithfulness, humility/gentleness/meekness) on this present earth/lifestyle not when we die every tick of time BECAUSE *HE IS ABLE*; hence I encourage us to make this prayer/declaration as a means of *submitting our free-will to HIS GRACE MANIFESTATIONS* every time in our minds/mouths then watch out as constency in Holiness and righteousness *through faith* in Jesus Christ manifests in your life on this earth *with ease*
thus
"Now to Him *who is able* to *keep you/me from stumbling or falling into sin*, and to *present you unblemished [blameless and faultless] in the presence of His glory* with triumphant joy and unspeakable delight,
to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and power, before all time, now and forever. Amen.

"So when He had washed their feet and put on His [outer] robe and reclined at the table again, He said to them, “Do you understand what I have done for you?
You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you are right in doing so, for that is who I am.
So if I, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet as well. For I gave you [this as] an example, so that you should do [in turn] as I did to you. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him.

ochibuogwu5:
"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved/shaken, *let us have grace*, whereby *we may serve God acceptably* with reverence and Godly fear" {Hebrews 12:28 KJV}
Grace is the *secret* of serving God *acceptably* according to his standard and will not according to our own human head knowledge, understanding, principle and style every tick of time we spend on this earth.
Grace is the *secret* of Christian faith.
Grace is the *ability/expressions/manifestations* of the Holy Spirit both for *believers and unbelievers* to help *mankind* thus "Grace of God which brings salvation has appeared to *all men*, it teaches us how to resist sin and worldly passions, it teaches us how to live holy, righteous and self-controlled in this *present world* {not when we die then we enter Heaven and start living holy lives}" {Titus 2:11-12}
Grace is used *in this sinful world/earth* to live a holy life in the power of the Holy Spirit thus "Jesus Christ said, there is *no excuse for sin*" {John 15:22} by any human being on this earth.
Do not be tired of *seeking mercy and grace* from the throne of God's grace to help us in this time of need {every tick of second we spend on this earth is a time of need whether we are in pleasure or in distress/sorrows/pains}.
Great Grace Brethren!!!
it is only by grace ad faith that we can pls God
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 11:55am On May 16
Grace of God which brings salvation has appeared to *all men*, teaching us to resist sin and worldly passions and live holy, righteous and self-control lives in this present world(Titus 2:11-12)
This particular type of grace is *free of charge*
This grace has been given to every human being whether believer/Christian or not with regards to family background.
This grace helps each human being to accept *eternal life in Christ Jesus*
2. it teaches each human being how to resist sin in this world/age no matter the pressure/difficulties/challenges
3. it teaches us how to resist worldly passions(glutton, greed, sexual-lust, addictions, depressions, unforgiveness, bitterness, strife, envy, jealousy, wickedness, unbelief, idolatry, hedonism, smoking, betting/gambling, sinful desires e.t.c)
3. it teaches us how to live holy lives in this world
4. it teaches us how to live righteous lifestyle based upon faith in Christ Jesus not according to the law
5. it teaches us how to live self-controlled lifestyle in this generation even as we have our human flesh.
These are the *inbuilt capabilities of grace* inside each human being, the only way to *make them active/manifest* is by *believing* you/I have these Holy Spirit qualities inside us because we have *accepted the effects of Jesus Christ finished works* upon our individual lives thus "All these are written so that you may come to *believe* that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God and that *through believing* you may *have life in His name*"
(John 20:31)
It is *the believing in this gospel-truths/realities that makes *this life of Jesus Christ* to manifest as *grace* by the *power of the Holy Spirit*

Always pray for MERCY and GRACE from God's throne of Grace in order to study God's word regularly in line with Jesus Christ teachings then gain knowledge and understanding of your *identity/new-personality* in Christ Jesus then you will discover *satisfaction/inner-peace* for your soul in all areas(emotions, spiritual, marriage, finances, relationships, health, voctions, studies, office/organization, career-pursuit, business) of your life.

Collaborating with Grace of God(Jesus Christ) makes us to be *effective* in any area of life/career/family/vocation/academics/politics/business/marriage e.t.c much more than other human being thus
"But by the [remarkable] grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not without effect. In fact, I worked harder than all of the apostles, though it was not I, but the grace of God [His unmerited favor and blessing which was] with me."

On the issue of prevalent *suicide* in our Country recently:
"I think suicides and all other maladies occurred at about the same rate before the advent of social media. We just didn't hear about them so much unless we were close to the victims.
Mental illness definitely has a hand in ALL suicides. So say psychiatrists.
And I believe them.
I believe, as you wrote above, that it is very difficult to take your own life.
Unless something beyond your control has taken control of your mind.
That's mental illness.
There are so many people walking around...perhaps even reading this.. who are at different stages of mental illness. But in our society where our capacity to treat obvious illnesses like fever, broken bones, or breast cancer is very limited, how will we recognize mental illness, let alone treat it?"
{Biodun Ishola Ladepo}
"Misuse of technology also contribute: broadcast,wrong expression,wrong access to some apps on internet, unwholesome alliance on social media..etc.
Indirect enticing of bad spirit by wearing tattered clothes,dreadlocks and substance abuse are major contributors.
Raising immature children in the guise of adults is basset of it all. They are not matured to think constructively but telegraphically like computer...
Parents should watch the push to drive children to adulthood before time...."
{Tunde Bolaji}
"Thank you sir. From me, I think one of reasons why suicidal is prevalent nowadays is "broadcasting".
People had been committing suicide before this day but it was not spread.
Many people today are depressed and frustrated and know nothing to do but when they hear news about suicide, they think about it and do the same. Broadcasting bad news makes the bad actions prevalent in society. Not everything should be broadcasted.
My view though!"

May the mercy and grace from the throne of God's grace establish *sanity and peace* in the lives of human beings in this country and generation in Jesus Name. Amen.

Jesus Is the Vine—Followers Are Branches
1 “I am the true Vine, and My Father is the vine-dresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that continues to bear fruit, He [repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit [even richer and finer fruit]. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have given you [the teachings which I have discussed with you]. 4 Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me. 5 I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken off] branch, and withers and dies; and they gather such branches and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you remain in Me and My words remain in you [that is, if we are vitally united and My message lives in your heart], ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you. 8 My Father is glorified and honored by this, when you bear much fruit, and prove yourselves to be My [true] disciples. 9 I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me; remain in My love [and do not doubt My love for you]. 10 If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. 11 I have told you these things so that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy may be made full and complete and overflowing.

12 “This is My commandment, that you love and unselfishly seek the best for one another, just as I have loved you. 13 No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you keep on doing what I command you. 15 I do not call you servants any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you [My] friends, because I have revealed to you everything that I have heard from My Father. 16 You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed and placed and purposefully planted you, so that you would go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit will remain and be lasting, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name [as My representative] He may give to you. 17 This [is what] I command you: that you love and unselfishly seek the best for one another.

Disciples’ Relation to the World
18 “If the world hates you [and it does], know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you belonged to the world, the world would love [you as] its own and would treat you with affection. But you are not of the world [you no longer belong to it], but I have chosen you out of the world. And because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember [and continue to remember] that I told you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But they will do all these [hurtful] things to you for My name’s sake [because you bear My name and are identified with Me], for they do not know the One who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have [the guilt of their] sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 The one who hates Me also hates My Father. 24 If I had not done among them the works (attesting miracles) which no one else [ever] did, they would not have [the guilt of their] sin; but now [the fact is that] they have both seen [these works] and have hated Me [and continue to hate Me] and My Father as well. 25 But [this is so] that the word which has been written in their Law would be fulfilled, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’

26 “But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me. 27 But you will testify also and be My witnesses, because you have been with Me from the beginning.

...Men Have Pains Too....

A woman said to me, 'It took me years to really know that men cry too. I took my husband for a super human. I see him leave the house everyday and come back providing for us. One day as I have left the house and he was at home, I remembered that I needed to take something along, I turned back and headed home. As I got home, I tried going through the back door which was closer to the window of our room. I heard my husband crying like a baby asking God to help me get a job so I can help him fend for the family. He has never complained to me before but that day, I broke down in tears realizing that my husband has held much of his pains alone"

A young married lady went to her mother and complained that her husband has not always bought things she wanted from him. The mother asked her, 'How many of those things have you bought for yourself?". She stayed quiet and said, 'But he is my husband?". The mother replied her, 'Have you ever found out the things your husband wants you to buy for him?".

Men always try to hide their pains.

A woman was invited to preach at women conference and as she was preaching, she asked all the working class women to stand out. They humbly did. And she asked them, 'When you get your salary, how much do you give to your husband as a seed?". Before your money gets to anywhere else, the priest in your life which is your husband should get something from you. Even if he is a rich man, sow seed in his life. Sometimes, we women don't know that our husbands need something from us".

Men can be financially broke and pretend to have everything.

Most men are married but they have lonely life. Sometimes, ask your husband out. Men are not always busy as women think.

You have to understand that your husband has pains and needs too. Don't judge him by things you want from him. Sometimes, your husband doesn't have things you want.

Men also have emotional needs and problems. Men still cry for love.

Jesus Christ is GOD,
He is not just a representative of God, or a prophet of God or Michael de Arch-angel as some people/group think/say,
He is not just *Son of God*
He is not a different person from the Father and the Holy Spirit,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the *same person/being* who manifested 3-different unique functions with 3-different names(Father, Son and Holy Spirit)
Just like one human being is Father to his children, Son to his parents, brethren/believer to the body of Christ(the Church) however as God He manifests these 3-different functions at the same time and is present in the Heavens, earth and under-world *at the same time*
" Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going; so how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “ I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real]
Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
Jesus’ Oneness with the Father
If you had [really] known Me, you would also have known My Father. From now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father and then we will be satisfied.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’ Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you I do not say on My own initiative or authority, but the Father, abiding continually in Me, does His works [His attesting miracles and acts of power].
Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe [Me]
because of the [very] works themselves [which you have witnessed]" (John 14:5-11 amp)

Please, brothers and sisters in the Lord, when you visit social media platforms do not ignore comments that turn the hearts of people against Jesus Christ.

When you come across such comment don't say "it is not my business." It's our business to make known the love of Christ to people and to correct the ignorance people are spreading in these platforms.

Always correct such comments with God's word, by so doing, people will be delivered from that lie they could have believed.

Thank you!
