Winning Cults Members for Christ,
While Safeguarding Your Faith.
The purpose of this book is to win the High Control Cults members, such as, Jehovah’s Witnesses for Jesus Christ while Protecting your own Biblical Faith. Even though majority of the witnesses sincerely have zeal for God, they still need to accept Jesus Christ as the only way, the only truth and the only life giver. Presently, they consider the worship of Jesus as idolatry while considering their organization as the only way to salvation.
In 1879 Pastor Charles Taze Russell founded The Watchtower Bible and Tracts Society in the State of Pennsylvania and in Brooklyn, New York. It was one of the best Organized religions on earth. However, it does not qualified to be called the Truth and God’s Organization. That was amounted to Grandiosity and impersonating of Jesus. Who is the only Way, the only Truth and a Life giver (John 14:6; John 10:7-9)
God created people as free moral agent with ability to choose one form of worship or the other. It is ironic that a religion organization that fought for freedom of worship is denying her members the same freedom of worship. Many people who left their former religion and join the Watchtower Organization they were not labeled an Apostate until they decided to find another religion and left. About 80% of their members are Apostate based on the Watchtower interpretation. They became Apostate when they left the Watchtower Society. The members were not allow to read other religions literatures or attend another church. This was called interfaith. It is a disfellowship offense. What a double standard? Only the members of writing committee is allowed to research other religions literatures.
How to witness to Cult members
The method of witnessing to the Cult members is very unique. You need to know the difference between their teachings and the teachings of Biblical Christians. You need to know their mind set. For example, They think that only them can teach others the Bible. They think they are the only true and righteous religion. They think only Baptized Jehovah’s
Witnesses can pray and be heard by God. That their religious organization is the only way to everlasting life. The organization is the TRUTH. If you are not a member or you leave the organization, then, other members will hate you with passion because you have left the TRUTH. You will be labeled an Apostate, just like Apostles Paul was called an apostate ( Act 21:21)
Every other religions are regarded as pagan or demonic because they accept Trinity as biblical, they celebrate Christmas and Birthdays. They consider worship of Jesus and praying to Jesus as a form of idolatry. However, they did not consider the worship of their organization as idolatry.
The Watchtower Society says, “Come to Jehovah’s organization for salvation” – Watchtower 1981 Nov 15 p.212
For example, when I say, “Come to Jesus for salvation”. My statement shocked them. It is directly against their false doctrine- which was,”Come to Jehovah Organization for salvation”.
The most important concept behind being a Jehovah’s Witness is that you need to follow the Watchtower organization for salvation. The Bible is an organizational
Book and no matter how much reading one does, he or she can not progress on the road to life without his visible organization they says. For these reasons, Jehovah’s Witnesses will not read this book. The organization will discipline anyone caught reading another religion book or listen to their music.
In other to win the the Jehovah’s Witnesses for Christ, you need to learn from Apostle Paul, when he said,”To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. (1 Corinthians 9:22 NIV)
You will need to assumed the position of a student by asking questions from the the witnesses.
In this book I will try as much as possible to simplified the unique term used by Jehovah’s Witnesses that are not familiar to the Biblical Christians.
1-God’s Organization means modern day Noah’s Ark
2-Governing Body( The Slave Class)
3-Little Flock mean 144,000 that has heavenly Hope.
4-Trinity- Is it Biblical
5-Holy Communion or Memorial
7-Jesus Witnesses or Jehovah Witnesses which?
8-Baptism how important?
9. Did God Forbid Blood Transfusion?
If any Christian can use the Bible to correct their twisted doctrines on the above subjects, it is after then, they will either surrender to Jesus or run away from coming to you.
For example, it takes me less than five questions, to dislodged the Witnesses who came to confront me why I have a “Jesus Witness Ministries”.
The conversation goes this way: we have evidence that you are teaching apostasy by saying “come to Jesus For Salvation. And they displayed the picture of my signboard on their phone. That signs says, “Jesus Witness Ministries”and Come to Jesus for Salvation”
Then I asked, who are you representing? Jesus or Jehovah or the organization?
One of the Elder said, the organization. Then I told them that I don’t want to worship a printing corporation. I want to worship Jesus and Jehovah God. I recently know that my Baptism 44 year ago was to an organization and that it was not done in the Name of the father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit as Jesus commanded in Matthew 28:19 I realize that people are being Baptized in the name of the organization. Then I asked, wether the organization have the monopoly of true worship and everlasting life? They answered No. My last question was, is it not an acts of impersonation of Jesus, when the organization is being called the Truth instead of Jesus Christ based on John 14:6?
They can’t answer that question and they asked, who is teaching you all these things? I said, Holy Spirit. They departed from me.
The above example showed that the Witnesses need help to know who actually is receiving their worship. Not Jesus or Jehovah but a man made legal printing corporation, called The Watchtower Bible & Tracts Society. When Jesus called me and gave me the mandate to help the lost,sheep of the Watchtower organization. I felt so inadequate but the Holy Spirit taught me all I need to do to win the Witnesses for Jesus. Many of them are highly sincere and disciplined in their worship of the organization. They did not realize that their worship is been redirected to an organization not to God.
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the Watchtower Society is God’s Organization on earth liking it to Modern day Noah’s Ark. The organization is also called the TRUTH. Anyone who is not a member of the Organization is not in the truth and such can not gain life. Frankly put, he or she will be destroyed at Armageddon.
The problem with this doctrine was that The Watchtower was incorporated in Pennsylvania in 1879 by Charles T. Russel.
Since The Jewish System of religion was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. Which organization replace the Jewish System from 70 A.D to 1879 the time The Watchtower was incorporate in 1879?
Does it means that God forsook his people for almost 2000 years?
If being a member of an organization is condition for True Worship why would Jesus say where two people or three gather in my name, I would be in their midst? (Matthew 18:20)
Why did Jesus started his own Ministries with 12 disciples even though He was born and raised in the Jewish System of religion?
Why would all the prophets and Apostles wrote letters individually and not using one voice like Watchtower Organization is doing and yet they were all inspired by God? (2 Peter 1:21)
How would your organization treat those who write their own articles?
Watchtower Organization claim to be the Truth, and Jesus says, “I am the truth” Which one is the genuine truth and which one is the counterfeit truth? (John 14:6)
Why did Jesus call them impersonators thief and robbers in (John 10:7-9)
Hebrew 13:8 says, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Why did the organization change their beliefs periodically?(Hebrews 13:8 NIV)
If The Watchtower organization is God’s organization Why would their doctrines keep on changing with the new Society President?
If God need one organization to assemble all His people, why did He confused their language when Nimrod first organized people in The Book of Genesis?
“Now the whole world had one language and a common speech.
That is why it was called Babel —because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth”. (Genesis 11:1, 9 NIV)
How do you know that Satan was not behind the one organization theory from time of NIMROD , to the present effort by world rulers to form a United Nations Organization with The goal of creating “NEW World Order”. One Government, and under One Nation?
Have you heed the warning of Apostle John, in 1 John 4:1-2,6?
If the Organization is God’s Organization why would it prophesies failed to come pass in 1914, 1925, and 1975? Read Deuteronomy 18:20-22, Jeremiah 14:14.
Apostles believed that the Holy Writing is sufficient to make us wise for salvation, Why do your organization uses uninspired books to study instead of the Bible?
Many Members of Watchtower Organization sold their businesses, their homes,
Forgone child bearing and schooling because the organization told them that the world would come to an end in 1975. And they donate their money to the society.
3- What compensation did the society offered them when their prophesy failed to
4- Where we’re those donations invested? Do you know how much they are? Do
they have financial statement for the public to see?
5- How many company do they have beside the Watchtower Printing Corporation?
How many offshore accounts did the Society invested their funds?
6- How do the Society compensate those who died while refusing, organ
transplant and whole blood transfusion before the organization reverses itself on
organ transplant and the use of fraction of blood transfusion in 2000?
7- How do you check the Society Bible and other books quotations to know
whether they are quoted out of context?
8- Did the Watchtower organization or it’s members perform any powerful works
to show that they receive Holy Spirit Like Early Christians?
Is the slave class a parable or a Prophesy?
“After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’ “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ “The man with two bags of gold also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.’ “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ (Matthew 25:19-23 NIV)
Ask, is this a prophesy or an illustration?
“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions”. (Matthew 24:45-47 NIV)
Is this an illustration or a prophesy?
There are group of seven men who claim to be the “SLAVE CLASS” in the Watchtower Society. The Slave Class was said to be the custodian of spiritual food. Her duties are to give spiritual food to the domestics at the proper time and to shepherd them. They claim that they receive the spiritual food directly from Jesus and their own job is to feed the flock with this spiritual food. (Matthew 24:45) was used to support this doctrine.
Pastor Russell claimed to be the Faithful Slave and later the Governing body claim the same title.
The problem with this teaching was, this was a parable and an illustration. It is not a prophesy. Again, this parable is talking about one slave. You know this by reading Matthew 25: 19-23.
Again Read Matthew 24:45-47 and the ask, is this an illustration or parable?
How many slaves was the master talking about here?
Why did a group of people think that this parable apply to them?
If Matthew 25:19-23 is a parable certainly Matthew 24:45 is also a parable.
The “Slave Class” is said to depict the governing body in Jerusalem using Act 15:22 to support this claim.
Why did all the Apostle wrote individually books and letters if one governing body is directing their ministries, like the Watchtower Society?
How would your organization view those who want to write their own articles not directed by the WatchTower?
These questions will assist the witnesses to know that God will save individual based on their own faith in Him, regardless of their religion organization. God will not safe an organization but individual.
The Little Flock of 144,000 that has Heavenly Hope:
This teaching was based on Revelation 14:3
However if you read Revelation 14:1-5 you will noticed that all the description
Of the 144,000 are symbolic. They are not real. Just as somebody was very rich with $20 Million Dollars in his dream.
Another point of note is Revelation 19:1 which says,
“After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, (Revelation 19:1 NIV)
This great crowd may include the numberless Elders and the 4 living Creatures as describe in Revelation 14:3
And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. (Revelation 14:3 NIV)
Then ask the following questions:
If 144,000 is a literal numbers while would all it’s description was symbolic?
What is the number of those elders ?
How many did Jesus give the power to become God’s Children in (John 1:12
1John 5:1. Roman 8:14)
Did these Scriptures mention any number of people going to Heaven?
What does Jesus mean when he said, “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? (John 14:2 NIV)
These questions will help the witnesses to have a rethink about their twisted doctrines of only 144,000 deserves to be in Heaven.
Trinity is it Biblical doctrine?
Jehovah’s Witnesses portray Trinity as a demonic doctrine. They will tell you that if you have a 3-headed child would you be happy? Of course Not! Then they will read about 3 different Scriptures to support their doctrine. (John 14:28, Matthew 3:17)
Any religion that teaches Trinity is considered pagan. Any witness who attends church services for any reason will be severely discipline.
For any Christian To defend their faith in the Trinity Doctrine, you need to know the nature of God, the deity of Jesus and the deity of the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, one need to know the role each of them play in creating activities.
God the Father
In a nutshell the Bible says, God is Love, God is Spirit and God is light. These are not mere qualities he possesses. It is his nature and his very being. The Scriptures confirm this by describing the appearance of God as fire, light.(Revelation 21:23, Exodus 13:21, 1 John 4:8, John 4:8) (1 John 1:5 NIV)
In Isaiah 43:11 God said, I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior. (Isaiah 43:11 NIV) Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. (Luke 2:11 NIV)
If there is only one God and one Saviour as stated in Isaiah 43:11 and Luke 2:11 stated that a Saviour has been born. If you agree with Jesus, that he is the same father and God, then God is one. You can not separate father from the son. Otherwise, the above Scriptures will be a contradiction of One God and One Saviour.
What does Jesus tell Philip when He said, show us the Father?
Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. (John 14:8-10 NIV)
Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also. (1 John 2:22-23 NIV)
To show that Jesus is a reflection or Mirror his father.Read Colossians 1:15-16
God is Light and Jesus is True Light.
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. (1 John 1:5 and John 1: 4,9)
Jesus Christ, The Mighty God.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. (John 1:9-10 NIV)
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:6-7 NIV)
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6 NKJV)
Who does Isaiah describe as MIGHTY GOD in Chapter 9:6?
And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28 NKJV)
Who does Thomas called GOD in John 20:28?
Who does Peter acknowledge as GOD and SAVIOR in 2 Peter 1:1?
looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, (Titus 2:13 NKJV)
Who does Paul acknowledge as Great GOD and SAVIOR in Titus 2:13; 3:4?
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. (I John 5:20 NKJV)
Who does John acknowledge as True GOD and LIFE in 1John 5:20?
But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: “Let all the angels of God worship Him.” (Hebrews 1:6 NKJV)
Who does God command the Angel in Heaven to Worship in Hebrew 1:6
Why would Angel reject being worship but direct Apostle John to worship in Revelation 19:10?
And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not charge them with this sin.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep. (Acts 7:59-60 NKJV)
Who was Stephen prayed to when he was stoned to death in Act 7:59-60?
The torn in the Flesh.
And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (II Corinthians 12:7-9 NKJV)
Who did Apostle Paul prayed to remove the torn in his flesh in 2 Corinthians 12:7-9?
Is Jesus a true God or a false God?
Who does the God the Father address as GOD in Hebrew 1:8?
Who does God directed the Angel to Worship in Hebrew 1:6?
Who created you and all things according to Colosians 1: 15-16?
In whose name can you have everlasting life Act 4:12; John 14:6?
Who is the Alpha and Omega in Revelation 22:13?
God Is a HOLY Spirit.
What does the John 4:23-24 when it says, God is a Spirit?
Is it correct to say the Spirit is God?
When Jesus says a sin against the Holy Spirit has no Forgiveness, does that show that Holy Spirit is a God Mathew 12:31-32.
In John 14:26 Who does Jesus says he will send to be our teacher?
In whose name did Jesus command all Christians to get Baptism in Matthew 28:20?
Who was God talking to in Genesis 1:26?
Who is in charge of power of God in Act 1:8?
Who directed Jesus to the wilderness in Matthew 4:1?
10 But they themselves rebelled and made his holy spirit FEEL HURT. He now was changed into an enemy of theirs; he himself warred against them.
Also, do not be GRIEVING God’s holy spirit, with which YOU have been sealed for a day of releasing by ransom.
For this reason, just as the holy spirit SAYS: “Today if YOU people listen to his own voice.
15 Moreover, the holy spirit also BEARS WITNESS to us, for after it has
Lied to Holy Spirit:
Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? (Acts 5:3 NIV)
Love by Holy Spirit:
I urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. (Romans 15:30 NIV)
Holy Spirit is every where.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. (Psalm 139:7-8 NIV)
The above Scriptures shows that Holy Spirit is a person of God. That is the third person in the Tri-unity doctrine. He can display emotion of hatred and Love.
Just as Human Being is a Tri-unity or Trinity if you like.
Human Body is made of (Spirit + Body + Soul). Apostle Paul wrote,
“May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ”. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 NIV)
For example, you have one mouth. Your mouth has the tongue and the teeth. Mouth + Teeth + Tongue = One Mouth. The mouth make it possible for you to eat your food.
Trinity is Biblical Doctrine. The Father + Son + Holy Spirit. It is one God. Indivisible
One God. That was why God’s name is ” I AM. (Shall Prove to be What I shall prove to be) He can do the work of his son, or father or Holy Spirit. Our Lord is One God beside him there no Saviour. Any attempt by any person to differentiate the Father from the Son as one God will lead to more confusion.
Another, example, was when I gave my name to my son. The boy is my replica. He has the same personality as me. The difference between us is the age.
Likewise, Jesus is The Lord, is the savior, is the Mighty God. Is the agent of live. Without him there no life.
Those who says Jesus is the Mighty God are correct.
Those who says Jesus is the son of God are also correct.
The Holy Communion only for the Saints?
The Jehovah’s Witnesses only celebrate the Memorial of Jesus’s death annually.
But majority feel unworthy to partake of Jesus Body and Blood. They will reject the emblem of his body and blood. They based this doctrine on the premises that only Selected few members numbering 144,000 people who will rule with Jesus in Heaven can take his symbolic body and blood. I later know that the occultist also reject Jesus name and body in their meetings.
Another point is that Jesus ate the PassOver in a private homes with his disciples. That means 2 or 3 people can celebrate the LORD MEMORIAL in the private homes.
He replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, and say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ He will show you a large room upstairs, all furnished. Make preparations there.” (Luke 22:10-12 NIV)
When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.”
After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. (Luke 22:14-20 NIV)
I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. (John 6:51, 53-54, 56-57 NIV)
The rejection of Jesus body and blood at the memorials, if is not an acts of disobedience to our Lord and Saviour, what is it?
Did the above statement gave any condition or location of where you will receive everlasting life?
The. Witnesses will read Revelation 7:4 and 14:3 to support 144,000 doctrine.
Then asked them to read it from verse 1-5 and ask whether this passages is literal or symbolic?
Then let them Read Revelation 19:1 and then asked, how many were in Heaven?
Then ask how many did Jesus gave power or authority to become God’s Children in John 1:12 and 1 John 5:1 ?
What is God’s View On False Prophecy
But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.” You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord?” If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed. (Deuteronomy 18: 15- 22)
Then the Lord said to me, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds. Therefore this is what the Lord says about the prophets who are prophesying in my name: I did not send them, yet they are saying, ‘No sword or famine will touch this land.’ Those same prophets will perish by sword and famine. (Jeremiah 14:14-15 NIV)
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are. (Matthew 23:15 NIV)
Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do.
(Isaiah 46:9-11 NIV
April 1, 1972 Watchtower Magazine claimed: “That The Nations Shall Know that A Prophet was Among them”.
1925 Failed Prophesy.
“Millions Now Living Will Never Die”
In 1918, Rutherford exclaimed in a series of public lectures, “Millions now living will never die!” This was related to his prophecy that the resurrection would commence on earth in 1925, with the return of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to earth. He went further to build many mansions called Berth Sarin in San Diego, California , USA for coming resurrected faithful.
The failure of the 1914 predictions and death of Russell in 1916 left his followers in disarray. After legalistic wrangling1 Rutherford became next President of the Watchtower Society. Credit must go to Rutherford for his ability to rebuild the Watchtower Society. He was able to re-ignite urgency into the remaining followers by announcing through public discourse in February 1918 that “The World Has Ended – Millions Now Living May Never Die!” In March the title was changed to the more compelling “The World Has Ended — Millions Now Living Will Never Die”.2
1975 Failed Prophesy.
“The published timetable resulting from this independent study gives the date of man’s creation as 4026 B.C.E. According to this trustworthy Bible chronology six thousand years from man’s creation will end in 1975, and the seventh period of a thousand years of human history will begin in the fall of 1975 C.E. So six thousand years of man’s existence on earth will soon be up, yes, within this generation. So in not many years within our own generation we are reaching what Jehovah God could view as the seventh day of man’s existence. How appropriate it would be for Jehovah God to make of this coming seventh period of a thousand years a sabbath period of rest and release, a great Jubilee sabbath for the proclaiming of liberty throughout the earth to all its inhabitants! This would be most timely for mankind. It would also be most fitting on God’s part, for, remember, mankind has yet ahead of it what the last book of the Holy Bible speaks of as the reign of Jesus Christ over earth for a thousand years, the millennial reign of Christ. It would not be by mere chance or accident but would be according to the loving purpose of Jehovah God for the reign of Jesus Christ, the ‘Lord of the Sabbath,’ to run parallel with the seventh millennium of man’s existence.” Life Everlasting in Freedom of the Sons of God 1966 pp.26-30
The 1968 edition of The Truth book contained subtle quotes pointing to the fact that the world could not survive past 1975.
“Back in 1960, a former United States Secretary of State, Dean Acherson declared that our time is “a period of unequaled instability, unequaled violence” And he warned: “I know enough of what is going on to assure you that, in fifteen years from today this world is going to be too dangerous to live in.”" The Truth That Leads to Eternal Life p.9 1968 edition.
The Effects on the Watchtower Disciples.
Many children dropped out of schools, other post pone marriages and child bearing. Other sold their homes and businesses and donated the money to the Society. Some farmers cut down their Cocoa farms.
After reading the above, you can then ask what do you know about The watchtower prediction of the end of the world in 1914, 1925, and 1975?
Is the Watchtower Society a true prophet or a false prophets?
Remember that you need to humble yourself like an innocent student who want to know the Bible truth. Your mission is to win Jehovah’s Witnesses for Jesus while safeguarding your own faith.
Many New Jehovah’s Witnesses who join the organization after 1975 did not know what had happens about the false predictions and the Watchtower Society always shift the blame on over zealous witnesses. Don’t be surprised when some of the Witnesses displays their ignorance of their history. Witnesses are like a lamb that see not his base but can see its surroundings.
Why Question Religion?
Suppose you need to have surgery for a life-threatening illness. You would want to have the utmost confidence in the surgeon, since your life will be in his hands. Would it not be prudent to review his record of experience?
Similarly, it is wise to examine religion carefully. If you belong to a religious organization, you are, in effect, putting your spiritual life in its hands. This includes your prospects for salvation.” “The Watchtower (2013), July 1, 2013.”
If you are one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and feel guilty researching the Organization or reading other religion publications, consider the following Watchtower article. “It is important, then, that you “keep testing whether you are in the faith,” as Paul declared. Keep checking to see whether the things you believe are in keeping with God’s Word.
But the question is, Are you willing to put your religion through such a test? There is nothing to fear, because if you have the right religion you can only be reassured by the examination.
And if what you believe is not in keeping with the Bible, then you should welcome the truth, because it leads to light and life.” Watchtower 1958 May 1 p.261 Is Your Religion the Right One?
Apostle John warned,
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood
. (1 John 4:1, 6 NIV)
Jesus Witness or Jehovah Witnesses, Which?
God bears witness to Jesus.
I am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me.” (John 8:18 NKJV)
And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17 NKJV)
If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son. He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. (I John 5:9-12 NKJV)
The above Scriptures indicate that God the father bears witness about his son Jesus Christ as the life giver. That was consistent with Jesus Statement that, “I am the Way, the Truth and Life”…(John 14:6)
Holy Spirit Bear Witness to Jesus.
“But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning. (John 15:26-27 NKJV)
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.
(John 16:12-14 NKJV)
The Angels Bears Witness To Jesus
“‘I, Jesus, sent my angel to bear witness to you about these things for the congregations. I am the root and the offspring of David and the bright morning star.’”
(Rev. 22:16, NWT)
At that I fell down before his feet to worship him. But he tells me: “Be careful! Do not do that! I am only a fellow slave of you and of your brothers who have the work of witnessing concerning Jesus. Worship God! For the witness concerning Jesus is what inspires prophecy.”(Rev. 19:10, NWT)
The above quotations reveal that one the Angels works in heaven is to witness about Jesus. So we should be glad to know that the Angels are accompanying us in the evangelizing work.
Do The Prophets And Early Christians Bears Witness to Jesus?
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 NKJV).
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV)
And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. (Acts 4:33 NKJV)
And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.” (Acts 10:39, 43 NKJV)
From the above inspired scriptures you will agree with me that God, our Heavenly Father and The Holy Spirit bear witness and testified about Jesus. The Angels in the Heavens, all the Prophets and the early Christians bear witness to Jesus.
9- Whose Witnesses are early Christians ? Whom does the Angels in Heaven bear
witness in Rev. 19:10? Whose witness should YOU be?
10- Read Act 4:12 , whose name shall anyone Be SaFE?
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:6, 7 NIV)
11-Who is the way to the father and who is the father ? Jesus and His father are
how many? Read ( John 14: 9-10)
Baptism How Important For Salvation?
The importance of Baptism with Water and Baptism with Holy Spirit can not be over-emphasized. For example, Jesus went John the Baptist to get Baptized at the age of thirty at the beginning of his earthly ministry.
When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16-17 NKJV)
Jesus also commanded his disciples to Baptized all believers in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16:15-16 NKJV)
Three points stood out is Believe or Faith and Baptism leads to salvation. Or I say,
Faith + Baptism = Salvation.
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (Ephesians 4:4-6 NKJV)
Again One Spirit, One Hope, One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, one God and Father Stood out in the Bible.
Baptism with Holy Spirit
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (John 3:3, 5-6 NKJV)
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:1-4 NIV)
When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. (Acts 8:15-17 NIV)
After establishing the importance of Baptism in our salvation, then you may ask the following questions.
Why did the Watchtower Society are Baptizing new converts in the Name of Spirit Directed Organization, Instead of in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit?
Watchtower Baptism Policy from 1955 to 1985
“A Christian, therefore, cannot be baptized in the name of the one actually doing the immersing or in the name of any man, nor in the name of any organization, but in the name of the Father, the Son and the holy spirit.” Watchtower 1955 Jul 1 p.411
“We do not dedicate ourselves to a religion, nor to a man, nor to an organization. No, we dedicate ourselves to the Supreme Sovereign of the Universe, our Creator, Jehovah God himself. This makes dedication a very personal relationship between us and Jehovah.” Watchtower 1966 Oct 1 pp.603-604
Baptism Policy Changes from 1985 to the Present.
In total disregard for these previous comments and Biblical examples, in 1985 the baptism questions changed, with the candidate having to announce their desire to become associated with an Organization.
“At the close of the convention baptism talk, the baptism candidates will be in position to answer with depth of understanding and heartfelt appreciation two simple questions that serve to confirm that they recognize the implications of following Christ’s example.
The first question is:
On the basis of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, have you repented of your sins and dedicated yourself to Jehovah to do his will?
The second is:
Do you understand that your dedication and baptism identify you as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in association with God’s spirit-directed organization? Having answered yes to these questions, candidates are in a right heart condition to undergo Christian baptism.” Watchtower 1985 Jun 1 p.30
Rather than follow the biblical example of confession in Christ prior to baptism, a Witness must prove they intricately know Watchtower doctrine and law, and then devote themselves to “God’s spirit-directed organization” – the Watchtower Society.
How would you feel after many years in the organization or a religion and you later discovered that your water Baptism is redirected to a man made organization instead of to God and Jesus and Holy Spirit as Jesus commanded?
Jesus directed Baptism should clearly mentioned In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
In whose names should Christian Baptism should be done? (Matthew 28:19)
DID GOD FORBID BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS?
We have been taught over the years that blood is something very sacred and that accepting blood transfusions would be a violation of God’s principles and therefore a disfellowshipping act.
The latest thinking now appears to be as outlined in the following quote, even though there is no scriptural enlightenment on the subject. Is it therefore a change of policy due to the litigation that seems to be on the Organisation’s doorstep?
Can you show us from the bible where there is a distinction in whole blood (sacred) and fractions of blood (not sacred?). See documents listed.
Watchtower June 1990 “Questions from Readers” “The Bible directs Christians to ‘abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from fornication.’ (Acts 15:29) Beyond that, when it comes to fractions of any of the primary components, each Christian, after careful and prayerful meditation, must conscientiously decide for himself.”
What is God’s view about the eating of blood?
God has a dietary laws for the Jews against the eating of blood. The pagan nations
practices of not bleeding a game and strangle the neck of sacrificial animals show lack of respect for the lives of those games. The lives of every creatures is in it’s blood. The blood carry circulatory gases – oxygen and carbon dioxide. That was why God forbid the eating of blood. In Leviticus 7:26-27 God says,”And YOU must not eat any blood in any places where YOU dwell, whether that of fowl or that of beast. 27 Any soul who eats any blood, that soul must be cut off from his people.’”
Leviticus 17:13-15 says,”‘As for any man of the sons of Israel or some alien resident who is residing as an alien in YOUR midst who in hunting catches a wild beast or a fowl that may be eaten, he must in that case pour its blood out and cover it with dust. 14 For the soul of every sort of flesh is its blood by the soul in it. Consequently I said to the sons of Israel: “YOU must not eat the blood of any sort of flesh, because the soul of every sort of flesh is its blood. Anyone eating it will be cut off.”
The punishment for eating blood is in verse 15?
15 As for any soul that eats a body [already] dead or something torn by a wild beast, whether a native or an alien resident, he must in that case wash his garments and bathe in water and be unclean until the evening; and he must be clean.
So what does cutting off means? Read verse 15 again. Be unclean until evening.
The early Christian uphold the sacredness of blood.
Fat and Blood is God’s Food
The priest shall burn them on the altar as a food offering, a pleasing aroma. All the fat is the Lord’s. “ ‘This is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live: You must not eat any fat or any blood.’ ” (Leviticus 3:16-17 NIV)
to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication. If YOU carefully keep yourselves from these things, YOU will prosper. Good health to YOU!”
Matthew 15:11. Jesus says,
11 “Not what enters into [his] mouth defiles a man; but it is what proceeds out of [his] mouth that defiles a man.”
If the punishment for eating blood is BE UNCLEAN UNTIL EVENING, why then should a sane Christian kill themselves in the name of loyalty to ones religion? The fact is,
Higher Education is expensive but ignorance cost LIVES. There was no Transfusion when the Bible was written.
The Watchtower is inconsistent in allowing blood fractions. This is readily apparent when considering the following. “Jehovahs Witnesses do not accept transfusions of whole blood or the four primary components of blood namely, red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. They also do not donate or store their own blood for transfusion.” Kingdom Ministry Nov 2006 p.3
“Beyond that, when it comes to fractions of any of the primary components, each Christian, after careful and prayerful meditation, must conscientiously decide for himself.” Watchtower 2000 Jun 15 p.31
1. If it is wrong for a Witness to donate blood, whose blood fractions would the Witnesses use?
2. If blood must be poured on the ground, where would be the blood fractions they use come from?
3. If abstaining from blood does not allow taking a “major” fraction, why does it allow a fraction of blood?
4. If blood fractions were always acceptable to Jehovah, who is responsible for the Witnesses that needlessly died refusing blood transfusion due to Watchtower policy forbidding them prior to the year 2000?
Some examples of
How to refute the First Lie by the Witnesses.
For example, if a witness come to your door and offers you a free Bible Studies.
Smile and welcome him or her. But know That is the first lie.
Their goal is to study with you with their Mind Control Publications.
After you receive the book , Then you can ask the following questions….
Is this book inspired by God?
You just promise of giving me a free Bible Studies, why do you want to use uninspired book to study with me instead of the Bible?
Is the Bible not sufficient for salvation?
(2 Timothy 3:15-17)
Another Method is when you receive the Witness book promise to read it alone.
Look to the chapters and then write out questions from this book. Don’t show him or her this Book. You will drive him or her away if they see this book with you. Before the Witnesses start the study with you, ask him three to four questions from this book.
In summary, you need to pity majority of witnesses who are mistakenly worshipping a man made organization and getting Baptized in the name of the organization without knowing it. I was zealously following the organization for over 40 years without knowing that I was Baptized into an organization. The Baptism was not done in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit as Jesus commanded (Matthew 28:19). Cal Max said, Religion is the opium of masses. This means that regardless of your intelligence, religion can still fool you.
I wrote this book out of sympathy for millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses who want to sincerely worship the True God.
The Authors Testimony
For over 44 years I was not sure of everlasting life while I was following the Watchtower Organization because I can never do enough and be righteous enough to earn my salvation. I was constantly under pressure to do more and to hide my imperfections from other members who were spies of the organization. It is psychologically stressful to worship an organization instead of Christ. You can never do enough. You can never be righteous enough. And it is all hypocrisy at best. Sometimes I asked myself in what ways are we the Jehovah’s witnesses better than those whom we are preaching to? The truth is, some of them are worse than unbelievers . They are more hypocritical than the former.
Prophet Isaiah aptly said,”And we become like someone unclean, all of us, and all our acts of righteousness are like a garment for periods of menstruation; and we shall fade away like leafage, all of us, and our errors themselves will carry us away just like a wind(Isaiah 64:6).
My own share of poor judgment was when my first wife abandoned me in the United States in 1990 and went back to Nigeria. One elder was disfellowship due to her confessions. After that I got a divorce and remarried in 1995. However, The Watchtower Society did not approve the marriage. I was Disfellowshipped. My new wife was used against me when they imposed her as a Spiritual Head in the family. I did not know that they have such a diabolical policy that they are using to destabilize families. I was living in Hell for 12 years. That marriage ended in 2009.
When The Elders confessed to me that my marriage should not have lasted for more than five years. I told them that any policy that destabilize family can not come from God. This is Satanic principles. Then I asked, can you show me from the Bible where God overturns the principle of headship and imposed wife as a head in the family?
Since that day, I disfellowshipped the organization from my life. I stop going to their Kingdom Halls and stop reading their Mind Control Publications. In 2009, I Left the Watchtower organization after 44 Years and after they destroyed my marriage.( I John 4:1-2, 6, Deuteronomy 18:20-22)
When I think of the Watchtower’s false prophesy in 1975 and destabilization of my family, these two events arrested my hearts and brought me to Jesus, the only Way, the only Truth and the only Life eternal. (John 14:6)
Therefore, we all need Jesus ransomed sacrifice and favor to gain everlasting
life, not due our work and not base on our own righteousness, so that no one can boast ( Ephesians 2: 8-9).
Jesus said, “My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. And I give them everlasting life, and they will by no means ever be destroyed, and no one will snatch them out of my hands(John10:27-28).
In 2013, I came to Jesus for salvation. I was born again.(John 3:3 John 14:6)
Today, I am sure of everlasting life because I am one of Jesus Sheep’s. I don’t need to earn my salvation, it was given to me without conditions. It was based on Jesus grace and underserve kindness of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). My faith in the ransom sacrifice of Jesus is all I needed to be save.
Therefore those in union with Christ Jesus have no condemnation. 2 For the law of that spirit which gives life in union with Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. I am led by God’s spirit and am God’s Son and I am born again.(Roman 8:1-2: 14-17).
Today I serve my God of freedom and peace. My prayers are answered because I pray to Jesus, through Jesus, in the name of Jesus, and I receives the Holy Spirit and He is teaching me all the things I needed to know to become an adopted sons of God. I have been born again.(John I:12 , John 14:26, John 3:3)
Jesus have used me to perform many miracles to heal the sick people. God allowed me to prophesied and approved my prophesies to come to pass.
Praise the living Jesus. Hallelujah.
How Jesus Witness Ministries Started.
When God told me to start Jesus Witness Ministries in July 2013,
I said Lord, why Jesus Witness Miniseries?
He said, every Christian should bear witness to Jesus.(Act 1:8)
That God himself bear Witness to Jesus in ( John 8:18, Matthew 3:17, 1 John 5:9-12 , Matthew 17:5)
The Holy Spirit bear Witness to Jesus(John 16:12-14, John 15:26-27)
The Angels bear Witness to Jesus(Revelation 22:16, Revelation 19:10)
Then I said, where should I preach? He said, the Churches will help you to sow the seed of Christianity among Jehovah’s Witnesses. As Jehovah’s Witnesses come to their homes with their twisted doctrines, the Christians will show them the way to Jesus Christ. He said, presently they were worshiping the organization rather than Jesus. (Hebrew 1:6)
Then I told God, I don’t qualify to take this Task because, I am a sinner. Then he said, David, I know you before you were born. I have declared you righteous.
Then I started looking for churches that will assist me in this ministries. I search the World Wide Web and the Holy Spirit directed me to the Winners International. This church allow other Ministries to develop their ministries. They even have a seminars for other Ministries. Jesus is performing miracles in Jesus Witness Ministries. I am now a believer in God’s grace and power. Praise the Living Jesus. Hallelujah.
I HAVE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.
I have a spiritual identity. I know and I am convince and I can confidently says:
(Am a Temple of Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:19)
( I am a God’s Temple I Corinthian 3:16)
( God dwell in me 2 Corinthian. 6:16 )
(Jesus live with me (John 14:23)
Presently, I am bearing the fruitage of Holy Spirit in my lives.
You too should get your spiritual ID.
For example: You must have personal relationship with Jesus and his father. You must know How the Father, the Son, & the Holy Spirit views You.
Then you can be sure of everlasting life and your behavior will manifest your spiritual identity.
You must believe in the power of Holy Spirit as a helper and your teacher
You must ask and pray to receive Holy Spirit (John 20: 21-23, Luke 11:13)
You must recognize that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and Life (John 14:6)
Your must have personal relationship with Your God, with Jesus and with Holy Spirit. John 4:24, John 10:30 , John 14:8-9
You must apply what you read from the Bible to yourself and to your church
Do not judge others to make yourself righteous
You must read the Bible with Godly views , not with religious views(google)
You must recognize that there is no perfect religion and that all those who say Jesus is The Lord! are part of Christ body members ( I Corinthians 12:1-30)
That everyone needs Gods underserve kindness to be safe.( Ephesians 2:8-9)
More importantly, you must bear the fruitage of God’s Holy Spirit in your life
You must realize that your salvation does not depend on the type of your religion organization or church you belong to but on your personal relationship with Jesus.
Everyone need their own faith in God before you can gain life.
Faith is a pregnancy of reality. Or Faith give birth to reality.
