God Bear Witness to Jesus
Jesus immediately came up from the water; and, look! the heavens were opened up, and he saw descending like a dove God’s spirit coming upon him.
17 Look! Also, there was a voice from the heavens that said: “This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved.”(Matthew 3:17)
9 If we receive the witness men give,
the witness God gives is greater, because this is the witness God gives, the fact that he has borne witness concerning his Son.
10 The [person] putting his faith in the Son of God has the witness given in his own case. The [person] not having faith in God has made him a liar, because he has not put his faith in the witness given, which God as witness has given concerning his Son.
11 And this is the witness given, that God gave us everlasting life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that has the Son has this life; he that does not have the Son of God does not have this life.
(1 John 5:9-12, John 8:18)
“While he was yet speaking, look! a bright cloud overshadowed them, and, look! a voice out of the cloud, saying: “This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved; listen to him.” (Matthew 17:5)
How, then, shall we escape if we pay no attention to such a great salvation? The Lord himself first announced this salvation, and those who heard him proved to us that it is true. At the same time God added his witness to theirs by performing all kinds of miracles and wonders and by distributing the gifts of the Holy Spirit according to his will.
It was only right that God, who creates and preserves all things, should make Jesus perfect through suffering, in order to bring many children to share his glory. For Jesus is the one who leads them to salvation. He purifies people from their sins, and both he and those who are made pure all have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his family. (Hebrews 2:3, 4, 10, 11 GNT)

“I have many things yet to say to YOU, but YOU are not able to bear them at present. 13 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. 14 That one will glorify me, because he will receive from what is mine and will declare it to YOU.

In 1931, Brother J.F.Rutherford changed it’s name from Bible Students International to Jehovah’s Witnesses, applying Isaiah 43:10 to support this doctrine.
“YOU are my witnesses,” is the utterance of Jehovah, “even my servant whom I have chosen, in order that YOU may know and have faith in me, and that YOU may understand that I am the same One. Before me there was no God formed, and after me there continued to be none( Isaiah 43:10)
If you compare Isaiah 43:11 to Luke 2:11 you may come to a conclusion that both scriptures is talking about one savior Jesus Christ.
