You are NOT a disciple of Christ. You are a disciple of the governing body of the Jehovah's Witness/Watchtower Organisation!

The Unity and Love is the one and only evidence of Christ's backing Sir. John 13:34-35, 17:20-23

So those Governing Body are TRUE servants of the one and only spirit son of God that can unite stubborn descendants of Adam and turn them to one big and happy family of peace loving worshipers in this end time Sir! Luke 12:42-44 smiley

Do you believe Jesus' followers must have deep love amongst themselves and be united AS HE SAID? cheesy

Òpònú Olódo!

What exactly do you believe in the person you can't see?

Is it not for you to be diligent and observe the fulfilment of his words?

Jesus said blessed are those who didn't have the opportunity to see him in person but believe him through the words of his followers {John 17:20} so neither you nor i have seen Jesus, i believe in the words pen down by his followers that Jesus' true followers will be united in love, but you've been arguing profusely against the idea, yet you say you're for the same Jesus, when you don't have anything similar to all that he promised except the deceptive signs that Jesus himself said Satan's agents will be exhibiting to deceive people! cheesy

You are insulting my commander in Chief by saying he has no VISIBLE army! Jesus is the commander in Chief of all the heavenly host, his heavenly angelic armies are the ones organizing and directing his spiritual soldiers on planet earth.

Ordinary human army commanders are rated by the force they command, but you are saying Jesus the commander in Chief of all the armies of God has no physical soldiers that are well organized for recognition!

Hmmm poor understanding is harsh but let's see who has a very poor understanding here.

Explain this scripture Act 24:15

15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

Who are the Just and who are the Unjust?
Why will the unjust be resurrected?

Or will those wicked ones now, who are hearing the word of God everyday will be resurrected?

Remember, the wages that sin pays Death. So after paying for one's sin with death... God will resurrect an already judged and convicted person back to life to kill him again? So, God is that unjust abi?

Pls go back to study what judgement really is in the Bible. You can know how to quote Genesis to Revelation but insight is more important.


You proved my perceptions right.
The unjust will be resurrected inorder to face judgment and to receive their punishment called the second death.

Wages of sin is death, thats the death the unjust will face in the lake of fire.

The death which everyone dies now is not the second death which only the unjust will receive .
If so why are just and righteous men such as David,Abraham,Jacob,Moses dead?

Depending on the context, hell could mean grave or abode(holding place/prison) of unholy souls after death.


Ps16:10
"For You will not leave My soul in hell; You will not allow Your Holy One to see corruption."

Mat 18:9:
"And if your eye offends you, pluck it out and throw [it] from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire."
Ps 9:17:
"The wicked shall be turned into hell, all the nations that forget God."


Lake of Fire is empty as of now for it will only be populated after the resurrection.
Rev 20:10:
"And the Devil who deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [were]. And he will be tormented day and night forever and ever."

Rev 20:15:
"And if anyone was not found having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire."

In fact, Hell too will be cast into the lake of fire

Rev 20:13-14:
"And the sea gave up the dead in it. And death and hell delivered up the dead in them. And each one of them was judged according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death."

Obviously you don't know the meaning of kingdom my friend.

It simply means GOVERNMENT, where the rulers have their governmental seat in the central or capital of the city/country, while other citizens living in harmony with the constitution of the government are in other places under the jurisdiction of the government.

So it's not two Kingdoms Sir, it's still the same kingdom having the governmental seat where the King lives! smiley

Where are the Saved taken to when Christ returns?

1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Think of a senatorial candidate discussing with his fellow senatorial candidate from another part of Nigeria about where they'll be staying after they've won the senatorial seat!

Of course one will be telling the other,

we will all be taken to Abuja to commence our duties as senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

But that's not where the remaining millions of Nigerians will stay! smiley

So Paul was directing this statement to his spirit anointed brothers (Born Again Christmas) chosen by God to rule with Jesus in heaven. Revelations 14:1

True, but it still does not prove your argument.
If the second death is annihilation and death is supposed to be a state of no consciousness, how then can God pay each one according to his "evil works".

Do you believe that Christians will be rewarded in paradise according to their works? If this is true, is the same expected for the unrighteous ones? Will the state of annihilation of Adolf Hitler be different from that of Gen Abacha? Will the state of annihilation of Satan differ from the state of a petty thief who died from an accident while fleeing capture?

You're more wrong.

Let me explain the first and second death to you.

The death now is as a result of the sin we inherit from Adam and Eve.

Now, there are people who never heard about the gospel till they died, these ones are the unjust that will be resurrected with the just.

Do you remember that Satan will be imprisoned for a thousand years.... During these period, the just who are resurrected will teach the unjust the way of the lord.

I'm sure you know that at the end of the one thousand reign... Satan will be let loose to test people for the last time. Anyone, be it the just or the resurrected unjust who falls for Satan this time around will be destroyed forever... No more hope for any resurrection. This is the second death. Revelation likened it to something destroyed in the lake of fire.
Read Revelation 20:13&14

13And 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. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
See, if this fire is a literal fire, can death and hell fire be thrown into the same hell?

It's clear the second death is likened to something burnt in fire.

You should also check the root meaning of hell. It means to hide or cover... Other translations calls it grave.

We are yet to know those who made hell (grave) a place of torment.

If we are to follow Revelation 20:14 literally then we will say hell was thrown into hell, it doesn't make sense. Does it?

What do you think?

The main people who sinned in Eden. Did God sent them to hell? How come humans that inherited the sin are to be sent to hell? Is that the kind of unjust God you are serving?

Let's even say we committed the original sin and we live for 70 or 80 years... Will God now punish us forever for a sin of 80years? God does not punish more than the sin committed. Death is the wages of sin. The same applied to Adam and Eve.

You say Jesus only empowered his apostles to cast out demons. Okay!
If your governing board should be obeyed like the apostles, where is the proof of their empowerment?

There are signs to identify the chosen in each generation.
Abel's own was the acceptance of his sacrifice.

Noah's own was that all animals were going to meet him in the ark.

Moses asked for signs to help the people believe him and he did so many.

Elijah called down fire on sacrifice.

John only baptised people.

Jesus performed the greatest of all signs.

The Apostles performed to help the Israelites identify them back then.

All the signs aren't the same!

What is the sign Jesus himself foretold will serve as identifying mark of his end time group?

He said "when all the earth is in chaos as to find LOVE and UNITY in any society, his own followers will be identified by the LOVE and UNITY permeating their midst! John 13:34-35, 17:20-23

So real Bible students don't expect the same SIGNS all the time, we search the scriptures to know the IDENTIFYING MARK given for our own generation.
That's why Jesus said "a crooked and twisted generation is demanding for a sign (of course people with crooked minds will always demand for the same kind of signs from God's servants) but none of what they're expecting will be given them" Matthew 12:29

Jesus performed so many signs yet he said this same thing about his own generation. Luke 11:29
For your information my friend there will always be identifying mark of pure worship but it will never be what unbelievers like you are demanding, that's what Jesus meant! smiley
