What Jesus Witness Believe. Since Jehovah God bears witness to Jesus, the Holy Spirit bears witness to Jesus, the Angels bears witness to Jesus, the prophets bears witness to Jesus and the early Christians bear witness to Jesus. We too should bear witness to Jesus, based on the following scriptures. ( John 8:18, 1John 5:9-11 , Matthew 3:17) (John 15: 26-27, John 16:12-14) (Revelation 19:10, Revelation 22:16)(Acts 1:8 , Act 2:32 , Act 3: 15, Act 4: 33, I Corinthian 15:1-10) Jesus Witnesses Ministries. We rely on Holy Spirit to teach us the Bible truth and that The Scriptures are sufficient to assist us to come to Jesus for salvation.(John 14:26, 2 Timothy 3:15-17) We believed that Jesus is the truth, the Way and Life John 14:6 . Any human Or organization that claim to be the truth is false Christ. Our Preaching is bases on God’s Spirit and Power “And I came to YOU in weakness and in fear and with much trembling; 4 and my speech and what I preached were not with persuasive words of wisdom but with a demonstration of spirit and power, 5 that YOUR faith might be, not in men’s wisdom, but in God’s power.(1 Corinthian 2:3-5, 4:20, Act 1:8) We believed that spiritual gifts is very portent today until the Lords work is fully accomplished. “Therefore, if YOU, although being wicked, know how to give good gifts to YOUR children, how much more so will the Father in heaven give holy spirit to those asking him!”( Luke 11:13, John 20:22, 1 Corinthian 12:1-30. 14:1-2 )(Mark 16:15-18) We believed that all Christians should obey Jesus command to partake his symbolic flesh and blood if they want life after self-scrutiny.(John 6:41-57, 1 Corinthian 11-23-27) We believed that it not the business of any Christian to classify people into Heaven or into paradise earth. That Is God’s own business and jurisdiction(Mark 10:40, Act 1:7, John 1:12 , 1 John 5:1,18-19 ) We believed that our salvation is not based on our own righteousness or based on our own work but based on Jesus grace and favor(Ephesians 2:8-9). We believed in personal relationship with Jesus, our father and the Holy Spirit. Our preaching goal is to direct people to Jesus for Salvation. We believed that the Bible is sufficient to help us to become completely equip for every good work (2 Timothy 3:15-17. 1 John 2:27 John 14:26 ) We invite people to come to Jesus for salvation ( Matthew 11:28-30 John 14:6) We encourage our members to be highly educated because it will assist them to fully utilize their talents and serve God better. We love people unconditionally and we do not practice disfellowshipping and shunning of members. We believe that Jesus is the appointed judge of both the living and the dead. (Matthew 7:1-5 John 5:22. 2 Timothy 4:1 ) Person is counseled with love, grace and humility but never completely isolated from friends and family, and he is still considered a “brother” in the faith (2 Thessalonians 3:15, James 5:13-16) Life Change: = Empowered through the indwelling Holy Spirit who changes heart motivations and strengthens believers to overcome sin and destructive behaviors (Ephesians 1:11-14; Romans 8:1-2, 4-5, 11-17; Ezekiel 36:26-27; Psalm 103:10, 12; Micah 7:18-19). Under the New Covenant given to Christians, and through the blood atonement of Jesus Christ, humans are now able to move from the legalistic standards of “religion” to a personal “relationship” with God, by being “adopted” sons and daughters of God out of Satan’s family and the condemnation of death due to sin.(Hebrew 8:7-13; 12:24)(John 1:12, Galatians 4:4-7). Because no man can keep God’s laws perfectly enough to merit eternal life, animal sacrifices were performed on an on-going bases under the Old Covenant to atone for mankind’s sin and disobedience because, “without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness” (Hebrews 9:22). This was where Jesus Christ stepped in to become the ultimate blood sacrifice to atone for the sins of humanity. 1 Peter 2:24 explains: Any member can attend any church without penalty and whoever proclaim that Jesus is Lord is our fellow Christian workers (I Corinthian 12:3, Mark 9:38). HOLY SPIRIT and POWER Faith based Work alone at the direction of Holy Spirit and Power Method of spreading the Good-news is based on available technology, such as, emails, text messages, social media, mass media and public crusades, including house to house evangelism.(1 Corinthian 2:4-5, 4:20, Act 8:1, Ephesians 2:8-12) Jesus Witness Ministries God’s favor: = Freely granted to those who personally accept the forgiveness offered in Christ’s blood (Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; Romans 4:4-5; 8:1-2; 6:23; 11:6). Rules : = A means of expressing gratitude for God’s unconditional forgiveness (1 John 4:19; John 14:15). Relationship Personal “relationship” with God is far different from a “religion” that tries to earn God’s approval through human efforts. Operating under the “religion” of the Old Covenant given to the Israelites in the Hebrew Old Testament Scriptures, the Jews constantly struggled to try to be worthy enough for God’s forgiveness by obeying 613 commandments given to Moses (including the 10 Commandments that encompass the heart of the Law). No matter how hard the Jews tried to be righteous, they always fell short of fulfilling the Law requirements perfectly. This is why Jesus told the followers of His day: “For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. …Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”—Matthew 5:20, 48 1. Jesus Witness Ministries Salvation: Forever guaranteed to those who have been bought by the blood of Christ, whose sacrificial death was “sufficient” to cover “all” wrongs forever( Ephesians 2:8-9)(2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 1:9, Roman 8:1-2) MARRY ONLY IN THE LORD Our members are free to marry anyone who is a believer in Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior regardless of the name of their religion. We do not use cultish interpretation of the Bible by applying the counsel to a particular sect because Marry only in The Lord is not Mary only in the Religion. “Everyone believing that Jesus is the Christ has been born from God, and everyone who loves the one that caused to be born loves him who has been born from that one.”(1 John 5:1, 1 Corinthian 12:3, NWT)( 1 Corinthian 7:39) Birthdays and Holidays We believe that faithful men of old had good times including celebration of birthday and feast. For examples, Abraham had a big feast for Isaac when weaned(turned 3 years old) and Job children had parties on their own days. Furthermore, we are to rejoice with those rejoice and weep with those who weep, our Lord said. We believe that each day of the week was used in ancient time to worship false gods. We rejoice to know that today that same days of the week, Months and Year are now been used to serve the True God and our Lord Jesus Christ. ( Genesis 21:4-8, Prayer & Fasting: Since Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights and he stated that no one can perform miracle without fast and prayers we too have chosen Thursday as our fasting and prayer day.(Mathew 17 :14- 21 ,Mathew 4: 1-4 , Easter 4:12-21)(I Cort 12: 1-12 So, to have this personal “relationship” with God, all that you need to do is put your faith and trust in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) and confess Him as Lord and Savior of your life (Romans 10:9), by “coming to” Jesus, asking Him to forgive you of your sins and to give you eternal life (John 5:39-40; 6:37, 39-40; 14:6; 1 John 1:9). In return, Jesus promises: “Come to me, all YOU who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh YOU. 29 Take my yoke upon YOU and learn from me, for I am mild-tempered and lowly in heart, and YOU will find refreshment for YOUR souls. 30 For my yoke is kindly and my load is light“(Matthew 11:28-30). Are you “weary and heavy-laden”? Are you ready for “rest”? This is what a personal “relationship” with Jesus Christ is all about. You come to Him with your sin and guilt and He will give you forgiveness, a clear conscience and “rest” from your wearisome toil of endless human efforts of “filthy rags” of pride Exchange your “rags” of human “righteousness” for His worthiness, and you will be clothed with the righteousness of Christ(Romans 8:1)(Isaiah 64:6). “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”—2 Corinthians 5:21 Jesus Witness Ministries “As for you, the anointing that you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to be teaching you; but, as the anointing from him is teaching you about all things, and is true and is no lie, and just as it has taught you, remain in union with him.” —1 John 2:27, New World Translation Think about it this way. If God is a loving God and He wants everyone to come to know His Truth so that they can be forgiven and receive eternal life, why would He made the Bible so difficult that it would take a religious expert to understand it? Doesn’t it make more sense that God, being the loving God that He is, would send His Holy Spirit to teach spiritual truth to those who are seeking Him? Consider what Jesus declared to His followers: “But YOU, do not YOU be called Rabbi, for one is YOUR teacher, whereas all YOU are brothers.” —Matthew 23:8, New World Translation “But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach YOU all things and bring back to YOUR minds all the things I told YOU.” —John 14:26, New World Translation “However, when that one arrives, the spirit of the truth, he will guide YOU into all the truth, for he will not speak of his own impulse, but what things he hears he will speak, and he will declare to YOU the things coming.” —John 16:13, New World Translation Is Jesus The Mediator For All Mankind? Mediator for All mankind. “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus, who gave himself a corresponding ransom for all—[this is] what is to be witnessed to at its own particular times. For the purpose of this witness I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—a teacher of nations in the matter of faith and truth”(I Timothy 2:5-7). “My little children, I am writing YOU these things that YOU may not commit a sin. And yet, if anyone does commit a sin, we have a helper with the Father, Jesus Christ, a righteous one. And he is a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins, yet not for ours only but also for the whole world’s”(1 John 2:1-2). How many people did Jesus die for? Did he die for only the privilege Few? How many people did Jesus mediate for? Jesus is the Mediator of the New Covenant for who? “But now [Jesus] has obtained a more excellent public service, so that he is also the mediator of a correspondingly better covenant, which has been legally established upon better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, no place would have been sought for a second; 8 for he does find fault with the people when he says: “‘Look! There are days coming,’ says Jehovah, ‘and I will conclude with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah a new covenant; not according to the covenant that I made with their forefathers in [the] day of my taking hold of their hand to bring them forth out of the land of Egypt, because they did not continue in my covenant, so that I stopped caring for them,’ says Jehovah.” For this is the covenant that I shall covenant with the house of Israel after those days,’ says Jehovah. ‘I will put my laws in their mind, and in their hearts I shall write them. And I will become their God, and they themselves will become my people. And they will by no means teach each one his fellow citizen and each one his brother, saying: “Know Jehovah!” For they will all know me, from [the] least one to [the] greatest one of them. 12 For I shall be merciful to their unrighteous deeds, and I shall by no means call their sins to mind anymore”(Hebrew 8: 6-11). What is difference between new covenant and the old convent? Where will God write the new covenants? So that is why he is a mediator of a new covenant, in order that, because a death has occurred for [their] release by ransom from the transgressions under the former covenant, the ones who have been called might receive the promise of the everlasting inheritance. 16 For where there is a covenant, the death of the [human] covenant needs to be furnished”.(Hebrew 9:15) Who is the mediator of the new covenants? What does the old or former covenants produce? 19 Why, then, the Law? It was added to make transgressions manifest, until the seed should arrive to whom the promise had been made; and it was transmitted through angels by the hand of a mediator. 20 Now there is no mediator where only one person is concerned, but God is only one. 21 Is the Law, therefore, against the promises of God? May that never happen! For if a law had been given that was able to give life, righteousness would actually have been by means of law. 22 But the Scripture delivered up all things together to the custody of sin, that the promise resulting from faith toward Jesus Christ might be given to those exercising faith. (Galatia 3:19-22) What is the purpose of the law according to Galatia 3:19? Why is the old covenants not able to give everlasting life? Who were those under the new covenant? Tri-unity of God:TRINITY And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis 1:26, 27 KJVA) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. (John 1:1, 2 NIV) In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: and he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the pre-eminence. (Colossians 1:14-16, 18 KJVA) Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23, 24 NIV) Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (Matthew 28:18, 19 NIV) He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:7, 8 NIV) Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.” (Mark 3:28, 29 NIV) And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. (John 20:22 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) In summary the difference between Jehovah’s Witnesses and Jesus Witness Ministry is clear. Jesus Witness live by faith and grace and live under the new covenants written on believer’s hearts. Conversely, the Jehovah Witnesses live by work and self-righteousness and live under the law covenants written on the pages of Watchtower Publications.
