Don't mind the assumer/speculator. There are many lords and gods in heaven and earth. Father is the one God Jesus is the one Lord yet the speculator is saying father is the sovereign Lord. Doesn't it make the number 2 lords?
whereas bible said one lord o and this one Lord is Jesus Christ.

After this he will run away only to come back and tell us there are 2 gods and 2 lords in heaven and earth.

You are opposed to my teaching for a reasonable cause but I am still going to loosen you up by the Holy Spirit when you catch the revelation, it won't matter how you got to it. All glory to God.
Listen carefully now.
The recording of the years of Adam started after the fall but the Bible said that this happened on the 7th day that God rested.
1,000 years with Man who is Adam is the 1 day spoken by God. So if Adam been a man was to count 1 day, he would be looking at 1,000 years. It is just like calling year 2,000 the beginning of end times. From Adam to Jesus is 4,000 BC then add up to year 2,000 AD will give you 6,000 years already past so we are living in the early stages of the remaining 1,000 years to complete 7,000 which is the 7th day that God rested. This is why they call it the end of the world or apocalypse because it was on the 7th day that the serpent who is The Beast or AntiGod caused the fall.

Who said the fall happened immediately after the 7th day? Scriptures please

My Brothers in Faith.....

I have read so much and so much on this thread

I am quite surprised at some of the responses that some of my brothers have given to questions raised about so called doctrines of JW.

Some people have even gone as far as getting embroiled in arguments about 1000 years being a day and what not.

Let us not forget what our experience with these issues are on the field. Of what benefit is winning an argument of this sort. Even Jesus Christ knew what matters to get involved in and the ones he should avoid.

Let us no get dragged into unnecessary bickering with people who do not share our faith.

Jesus Christ said some wise words in Mathew 7:6. Those words are strong solid words that we need to take to mind at all times....especially in times as these when people do not appreciate the truths in the bible the way we do

Let us not forget that it is Jehovah alone that draws people to him. Not how many arguments we are able to win.

In the end we want to be light bearers shining and illuminating a darkened world.

My friend, if you won't contribute, kindly sit back and read... you think this is to win debate? Do you know how many people are being confused by this JW Cult? They lie to them, Make them accept their heresies because they obviously don't know the scriptures. We are here to expose them...So enjoy or contribute..

I am not with the Jehovah's Witnesses, but just recently came across this while doing searches. I am particularly interested in what is being said about Charles Taze Russell. Contrary to the way it is often made to appear there was no "organization" such as the Jehovah's Witnesses associated with the Watch Tower in the days of Russell. Russell would not allow the Watch Tower of his day to be used for such sectarian authoritarianism. Evidently, however, there were those who were advocating a kind of sectarian authoritarianism even while Russell was alive, but it was held in restraint until after Russell died. Russell, however, was never a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses, and Rutherford created the 'Jehovah's Witnesses' organization by rejecting the core Biblical teachings of Russell, and replacing them with teachings that, as far as I am able to ascertain, are basically still held to by the Jehovah's Witnesses' leadership to this day.

It is true that Russell never claimed to be the faithful and wise servant. He never assumed any special authority to tell anyone what they should believe about this, but he did say:














So what's your point?

Much of the information obtained through the internet, especially related to Charles Taze Russell, is often somebody's distortions, misrepresentations, and outright falsehoods about Russell.

Charles Taze Russell was definitely never a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses. He preached against such an "organization," and he preached against the kind of message being presented by that organization. He was definitely not the founder of that in which he did not believe, and which he preached against.
For links to some of my documented research related to Russell and the later "Jehovah's Witnesses.
http://rlctr.blogspot.com/2016/12/jws.html



This is definitely false. Russell was never a member of any of man's secret societies, and the message he devoted his life to preaching demonstrates this. While we have tens of thousands of pages of Russell's works that overwhelmingly testify that he was not a member of the Freemasons, the only evidence anyone ever presents to claim that he was a Freemason is related to certain Biblical symbolism he used and/or to various statements he made taken out of context.
For links to some my documented refutation of accusations that Russell was a Freemason:
http://rlctr.blogspot.com/2016/12/freemasons.html



Russell was never a member of the 7th Day Adventists. He had some association with some of the Second Adventists, but there is no historicial record that he ever even attended one meeting held by the 7th Day Adventists.



While I have no interest in defending Joseph Smith, as I believe that he was misled by spirits appearing to him, one should not just accept things as being fact. I know many people can present historical falsehoods in such a way that they do appear to be fact, but one should dig deeper to verify or disprove what is being presented. Joseph Smith died in 1844; it was in this same year that some of the Second Adventists began to promote the idea Saturday sabbath observance. The Seventh-Day Adventist Church was formed later in the year 1863. Most of the Second Adventists, however, rejected this idea. At any rate, historically, Joseph Smith could not have formerly been a member of a group that did not exist in his day.

There are no gender neutral pronouns in Hebrew, that is, there is no equivalent of the English "it".
Everything is a "he" or a. "she"
The Facts are obvious.
Wisdom is an abstract quality, "it " is the appropriate description in English but in the original. Hebrew Bible Proverbs ( chapters 1,3,4,7 etc ,) Wisdom is a "she",personified as a woman.
However in Prov 8:22-30, "wisdom" is revealed to be a created being..
In 31:10-31, the context speaks for itself.

Oga TATIME don't just write or post things you don't have good statistics about.......
Oga TATIME the strict obedient RULER................Can you see where the hypocrisy lies in all what you have been trying to defend? Even the "JEHOVAH'S ORGANIZATION" members do and practice Galatians 5:19-21.

The picture or artistic impression for (paragraph 15,16) gives you the details in summary.
If the "Jehovah's organization" members are ALLOWED to practice Galatians 5:19-21
Please why are they laying emphasis on it seriously in a study article of our watchtower?
Let me give you a useful advice that will benefit you greatly. "if you're no more interested in Jehovah's Witnesses organization, no one is forcing you to stay, therefore you're free to go and join any other group that pleases you" When Apostle Paul was writing that letter to Christians in Galatia, he wasn't saying "he's sure that Christians are TOTALLY clean or free from all those practices"( Romans 7:21-23,1Corinthians 6:9-11,) rather he is reminding them the practices that Jehovah won't permit in HIS Kingdom.
Of course Christians came from different races, cultures and backgrounds, so whatever each person's background permits out of all that's mentioned MUST BE DONE AWAY WITH meaning you should learn how to stop it or leave Christianity if you're not ready to stop it. 1Corinthians 5:9-13
Now there are many religious groups claiming Christians today,most of them aren't emphasizing the need for their members to stop those things, which religious group gives NO room for such practices?
When JW organization condemns
*National Anthems
*Military services
*Politics
*Interfaith
*Intermarriage between members and none members and so on amongst their members, other religious groups raised eyebrows. But a careful study of JWs magazines will help honesthearted persons to know that even though you knew very well the works of the flesh and wants to keep away from them, there are events or friendships that will definitely lead you into practicing them. 1Corinthians 15:33
Those are the things JWs condemns in our organization!

That's exactly the problem all these other religious groups are having today!
They stick to whatever their human founders dogmatically lay down as doctrines and they're never going to improve on it even if they discovered there are flaws.
I've told you before that brother C.T. Russell wasn't the founder of this wonderful group, otherwise nobody would change what he laid down Correct or Incorrect.
Jesus gave the keys of the Kingdom to Peter, Peter committed lots and lots of blunders and when he is corrected even by someone like Paul who never walked with Jesus, Peter humbly welcomes reproof! Matthew 16:19,Matthew 26:69-75,Galatians 2:11-14
Peter also spread the rumor that John won't die until Jesus returns, it was after all the Apostles had died that God's Holy Spirit inspired John to include in his record of the gospel that Jesus never said so. John 21:20-23
Paul (who wasn't with the Apostles during the life and ministry of Jesus) founded many churches as he travels through the Mediterranean sea area,he was establishing what the Apostles laid down as principles and Peter commended Paul even after being shunned publicly by the same Paul. 2Peter 3:15
Please if you lived as a contemporary of these men, would you have agreed that God's Holy Spirit used them?
Well that's the heritage of the worshippers of JEHOVAH. HE is not expecting perfection from them, HE is only interested in how imperfect descendants of Adam are willing to accept corrections! Psalms 103:14 God bless you Sir!

Look at it this way.
The script said and she was found with the child of the Holy Spirit.
Then Jesus Himself said that God was his father. Later He said that Him and His Father are One.
When the Jews took up stones to throw at Him, He said asked them, of all the good deeds you see me do from the Father, which one are you beating me up for? They answered Him saying, for good work we stone thee not, but thou being a man and maketh thyself God. You see, they understood the meaning of what it meant to be The Son of God, it means God incarnate. But they were only helping Him get to the cross. They were fulfilling scripture. After He rose from the dead, in Revelation He was now back to His true form. He said "I am the First and the Last" read everything He was
saying, it was like God is talking
Jehovah of the Old testament is Jesus of the New testament


"thou being a man maketh thyself God" was a false allegations labeled against Jesus.

Christ disagreed with that false allegation.

"Jesus answered them,..... why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said 'I am God's son?" John 10:34-36.

The Jews NEVER understood Son of God as meaning God incarnate.

In John 17:3, Jesus gives solid proof that he is not Jehovah in the New Testament.

In the entire holy scriptures, Yahweh / Jehovah/ Yahweh was NEVER. a son to anyone whether in heaven or earth.
That son was called "Jesus ,Son of the Most High" , Yahweh ( Luke 1:30-33) granted power to rule by the Ancient of Days ,Yahweh, his Father and God ( Daniel 7:13,14. Rev 3:21. John 20:17,30,31).

2) He is called " Everlasting Father" for a reason.
Our Father, the first Adam gave us life & lost it due to sin (Rom5:12) . Jesus Christ replaced Adam and became our Everlasting Father( the last Adam, 1 cor 15:21,22,45,47) because he sacrificed his perfect life to give us everlasting life if we exercise faith in him (John 3:16. ROM 6:23).

3) Father and I (we) are one" is strictly referring to a close, intimate relationship.

i) How are U one with a prostitute ?
intimate,illicit sexual relationship.

ii) How are U one with Jesus ?
Close, intimate relationship with Jesus.

iii) How does two become one ?
1Cor6:15-17. Matt 19:5,6. Mal 2:15.
Marriage relationship, intimacy b/w man and wife.

Pls note: Jesus NEVER said " Father and I are one" God. Men twisted it that way.

"Father and I (We) are one" means intimate,united, close relationship, Two spiritual beings (Yahweh & Jesus) in agreement with each other.
Can two walk together except they agree? Amos 3:3.

That's exactly what a mature JW will do. He is not saying you're wrong for what you're doing, he is only saying "JWs should concentrate on the WORKS that Jesus commissioned" since that is the only proof of those practicing Christianity!

In the Vatican you find a Latin inscription VICARIOUS FILII DEI which means in the place of the Son of God or God Incarnate. It is written on the throne and cap of the Maximum Pontiff popularly known as the Pope.
The Jews from understood that Adam being the Son of God meant God incarnate. Jesus is a prototype of Adam according to the gospel of Paul. Anyone who is claiming to be in their stead is trying to play God even in the era of the Holy Spirit making us all children of the creator of heaven and earth.

The Jews didn't take it likely when Jesus claimed to be the son of God because they knew he was saying He was God. However he could not directly say that because he was still here but after His resurrection He could now say I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending , THE ALMIGHTY - Revelation 1:8

Then he went ahead to warn about the beast and his images in Revelation 13 in relation to the the horsemen in Revelation 6 which we all know to be run by the AntiChrist or Anti-Jesus-being-God spirit
Re: Jehovah's Witnesses: 17 Facts People Should Know About Them by TATIME: 2:41pm On Dec 15, 2018
Pharisees in the first century stopped performing as worshippers of Jehovah,because there are many rival groups until Jesus commissioned Christianity. So all those rival groups form alliance against Jesus' group (Christians).
So it became obvious that the activities of those rival groups are diminishing and becoming futile as many people are now getting used to Christianity (the only Jewish group that's performing greatly as lovers of those in their neighborhood).
I want to agree that JWs are fake, but won't it make sense if a PERFORMING group is presented to show honesthearted individuals that "this is how Christianity ought to be"? It's not just enough to make someone feel bad because he's remaining faithful and loyal to what he/she has been taught to believe, it's rather reasonable to direct, present, point or show him/her the best way to do what he/she thought he/she is doing right! The Pharisees are all out with rage to intimidate, criticize, prosecute, persecute and make the Christians feel worthless with all their unwavering faith in Jesus but NEVER ready to present, show, point or direct them to a better WAY to worship the true God.
I don't want to believe that that's exactly what all you critics against Jehovah's Witnesses are doing right now! undecided undecided

2 Corinthians 5:19
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

Matthew 1:23
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

1 Timothy 3:16
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

brodalokie:


In the Vatican you find a Latin inscription VICARIOUS FILII DEI which means in the place of the Son of God or God Incarnate. It is written on the throne and cap of the Maximum Pontiff popularly known as the Pope.
Adam who the pagans worship as God is known to be Son of God or God incarnate. Jesus is a prototype of Adam. Anyone who is claiming to be in their stead is trying to play God. This is in place of the Holy Spirit making us all children of the creator of heaven and earth.

The Jews didn't take it likely when Jesus claimed to be the son of God because they knew he was saying He was God. However he could not directly say that because he was still here but after His resurrection He could now say I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending , THE ALMIGHTY - Revelation 1:8
The title "GOD" is what caused all these arguments. But it could easily be resolved if we consider Psalms 82:1,6
There the scriptures said in verse 1 "GOD stand in the congregation of the mighty, HE judges amongst the Gods" verse 6 reads "I have said,you are Gods and all of you are the children of the most high".
One word that took my attention is JUDGE. Why? Because according to Genesis chapter 3:4 5 there Satan told Eve that if they disregards God's orders "they will become Gods. This means they'll be in the position to determine what is good and bad or in other words they'll become "judges".
So when Psalms 82:1 says God JUDGES amongst the Gods, surely those ones aren't supposed to be judges or Kings who will determine the fate of other intelligent creatures based on what they assume to be good or bad. That's why God said they will die just like others. Psalms 82:6
In conclusion Moses became God before Pharaoh and all his contemporaries to determine their fate,that of Pharaoh and all his(Pharaoh's) subjects as a JUDGE who will tell them what is good or bad. Exodus 7:1
Jesus became God before all those who will have everlasting life as a JUDGE who will tell them what is good and what is bad. Isaiah 11:1-5 compared to John 8:16
Both Moses and Jesus served as God to the glory of the Almighty who made them Gods and they're ever subjected to the One who elevated them to serve in that capacity! Deuteronomy 6:4 Mark 12:29 1Corinthians 15:20-28
God bless you Sir!

BIrds of a feather always. flock together.
Na their way.


See frustration.lol

You asked if God is really male so as to defend your assumption that wisdom is Jesus Christ. Do you know you are actually saying Jesus Christ is God?
You think we are daft and are dummies right? You think you can just say anything you like.

Bible addressed wisdom as a she, a sister and a kinswoman. I know you have a problem with it the truth is that you can never change what the Bible says.

Wisdom is a girl/woman/female who cries at the city gate.
Your jehovah didn't have wisdom till he created wisdom.
