The Jehovah Witness System

Lies And Fear Based In False Faith

The Jehovah's Witnesses Belief System

They Think Jesus Is A Created God

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that Jesus was just a physical manifestation of Michael the archangel. Well, we disagree with them regarding who Jesus was and is. The Bible indicates that Jesus was and is God in the flesh

They Deny That Jesus Rose Bodily From The Grave

They acknowledge that the tomb is empty. The Watchtower teaches its members that Jesus’ body was dissolved, disintegrated back into the elements from which all human bodies are made.

They Think Jesus ’Second Coming' Occurred Spiritually and Invisibly In 1914

Did every eye see Jesus come back in 1914? No. Did any eye see Jesus come back in 1914? No. The Watchtower tries to get out of the clear implications of this verse (Rev. 1:7) by saying: ‘The eyes spoken of here speak of eyes of understanding….Those who had spiritual eyes to understand this is what took place in 1914, realize that Jesus did came back.’ (see You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth, p. 146)

They Think Only A Special Group Of 144,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses Will Be Able To Go To Heaven. 

 what happens to Jehovah’s Witnesses who aren’t part of the 144,000? Well, the Watchtower teaches that the rest of the Witnesses will remain unconscious after they die until they are resurrected to spend eternity on a paradise Earth apart from Jesus who will remain in Heaven with the 144,000.  nowhere does the Bible limit Heaven’s capacity to 144,000 persons.

1 John 4:2-3

 By this you know and recognize the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges and confesses [the fact] that Jesus Christ has [actually] come in the flesh [as a man] is from God [God is its source]; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus [acknowledging that He has come in the flesh, but would deny any of the Son’s true nature] is not of God


Who are the Jehovah's Witnesses?

The religious movement known today as the Jehovah's Witnesses began in Pennsylvania in the 1870s as a Bible class led by Charles Taze Russell. Born on February 16, 1852, in Old Allegheny, Pennsylvania, Russell attended Allegheny City Congregational Church with his parents. In 1868, when challenged on his views of hell, Russell expressed doubts about eternal torment. The following year, he abandoned his church and the Bible. In 1870, Russell attended a religious meeting led by a Second Adventist speaker named Jonas Wendall. Wendall taught that a person does not have a soul and that unbelievers are simply annihilated. This provided a resolve to Russell's concerns regarding hell. Two years later Russell organized a Bible class to promote his views. In 1877 he met N. H. Barbour, a man who believed in the invisible return of Christ. Russell, claiming he had already come to this same conclusion, also began to promote this view. Russell published The Watch Tower and Herald of Christ's Presence in 1879 and founded Zion's Watch Tower Tract Society in 1884. By 1888, Russell's movement had grown to a leadership team of 50 people. Russell had published a series of books and was editing a growing magazine. In his writings Russell predicted that God's judgment and the millennial age would occur by 1914. Because of this teaching, the Russellites were also called Millennial Dawnists. When the prophecies proved untrue, some Russellites left the fold. But because World War I began the same year, many thought Russell's prediction was close enough and that the prophecy would soon be fulfilled. In modern times, this growing religious movement, now called Jehovah's Witnesses, has continued to expand nationally and internationally. Their headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, is called the Watchtower, and they have their own Bible translation called the New World Translation (NWT). In 2018, the Jehovah's Witnesses' official website (2017 Service Year Report) claimed a worldwide membership of just over 8.4 million members.


What do the Jehovah's Witnesses believe? 

While there are some similarities to Christianity, the movement has distorted fundamental beliefs regarding many key biblical teachings. For example, Jehovah's Witnesses believe Jesus was previously Michael the archangel, making Jesus a created being. As a result, Jehovah's Witnesses reject the deity of Christ and the Christian belief in the Trinity. Only Jehovah is considered God. Further, salvation comes through faith and a list of works dictated by the Watchtower. This clearly contradicts many Scriptures that declare salvation is by grace alone through faith alone apart from works (Ephesians 2:8-9). Another key difference is the Jehovah's Witness view of Scripture. The Bible is considered corrupt, except for the NWT. This version of the Bible has changed the name of God to "Jehovah" in hundreds of places in which the original text uses different names. Many other changes have been made, reflecting the particular theological beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses. Most notable is the NWT translation of John 1:1 that changes "the word was God" to "the word was a god" (italics added). Many Greek scholars insist that this is not an accurate reflection of the original language and is, in fact, a deliberate mistranslation. Many other passages in the NWT have caused scholars to question the integrity of the translators. Another area of difference concerns the afterlife. Jehovah's Witnesses teach three realms in the afterlife. First, there are the 144,000 who are in the highest realm with God (Revelation 7:1-4). Faithful Jehovah's Witnesses who do not make the 144,000 will be in the next level and are considered the "little flock" of Luke 12:32. Everyone else will be annihilated, meaning they cease to exist. These views are much different from the Bible's presentation of heaven and hell as the only two destinations after death (Luke 16:19-31). Jehovah's Witnesses do not celebrate most holidays, do not vote or hold political office, do not participate in patriotic activities, and do not accept blood transfusions. These and other unique prohibitions have caused much controversy throughout the movement's history. In summary, the Jehovah's Witness movement is not a Christian denomination. Its core theological beliefs set it apart as a cult. Jehovah's Witnesses' views of God, Jesus, salvation, Scripture, and the afterlife are incompatible with biblical Christianity.

The Occult Roots

The Jehovah Witnesses are a Satanic organization whose foundational roots are firmly placed within Freemasonry. Charles Taze Russell, the illustrious founder of the Watchtower Society which subsequently became the Jehovah’s Witness movement, was a part of the Illuminati’s Russell bloodline which was involved in the formation of the infamous Skull & Bones Society at Yale University. Mr. Russell was an avowed Satanist who, according to his wife, was involved in pedophilia. He was also a close friend of the Rothschild family. It was the Rothschilds whom initially funded the Jehovah’s Witness operation through so-called “contributions” by organizations such as the Rothschild controlled B’nai B’rith. This fact was shown to be the case in a court of law in 1922. One of the key people directly involved with the receipt of these “contributions” was one Frank Goldman who would later become President of the B’nai B’rith. So the question becomes why would an organization which was set up, in theory, to help Jewish people & promote the Jewish faith be funding into existence the Jehovah’s Witnesses? I think the name Rothschild answers that question for us. Charles Taze Russell was a 33rd degree Freemason & a member of the Knights Templar organization. Notice the Freemasonry Cross. This cross also serves as the symbol for the Knights Templar.

Is it purely coincidence that a masonic cross is used as a symbol of the Jehovah’s witnesses?

In his book The Watchtower & The Masons Fritz Springmeier says: “It has always been disconcerting that the Masons are so adept at smokescreens. The leader of the anti-masonic political party in the 1830’s through the 1840’s turned out to be a mason. C.T. Russell & J. Rutherford printed material that was less than favorable to Freemasonry. & yet I know now that C.T. Russell was a Freemason & a Knights Templar.” The Jehovah’s Witness is a daughter of the Catholic Church. This Satanic Society used Catholic Church sources in order to produce its New World translation. A Mr. Westcott & a Mr. Hart were two Satanists whom founded the Hermes Club as well as being card carrying members of famed Russian witch Madam Blavatsky’s theosophy cult.

Since Christ failed to show up for any of the Watchtower dates, Jehovah’s Witnesses altered the teaching to make his coming convienently “invisible.”                                                                                                                                                                                      -Christ returned in 1874.

we would like to make you aware of the unbiblical doctrines being taught by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The first and possibly most disturbing doctrine of the Jehovah’s Witnesses is their belief that Jesus is a created being, and in fact they believe that Jesus is the Arch Angel Michael. The Watchtower Society is steadfast in its disregard and disdain for the traditional Christian doctrine of the Trinity, and denies it the truth of (1 John 5:7) For there are three that bear record in heaven the Father, The Word, and the Holy Ghost and these three are one.                                                                                                                                                                                        Now as I just mentioned the Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe that Jesus was God in the flesh, and they certainly do not believe that Jesus is eternal, now while the Trinity doctrine is often misunderstood, make no mistake the Bible says clearly in (John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, (Which is Jesus) and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Bible also teaches clearly in (John 1:14) the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us. Now these scriptures tell us clearly that the Word (Jesus) is God, and God walked amongst his creation as a man, and this in contrast to the Jehovah’s Witnesses doctrine that Jesus is the arch angel Michael a created being.


In fact the Jehovah’s Witnesses claim, that Jesus is a created being is not only unbiblical, but it is easily proven false, The Bible when speaking of Jesus in (Hebrews 7:3) Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.                                                                                       When speaking of Jesus in (Micah 5:2) But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.                                                                                                                                                                                                        And lets no forget that Jesus himself said in the book of (Revelation 1:8) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.                                                                                                                                        So from those scriptures you can clearly see that the Bible teaches that Jesus is from everlasting, with no beginning, or end of days, therefore He cannot be a created being. And although the Bible shows a clear distinction between God the Father, and God the Son (1 John 5:7) and many other scriptures tell us, that the Father and the Son, and the Holy Spirit are the one and only Almighty God.


Now I would also like to point out, that Bible scripture dismisses the false doctrine that Jesus is the Arch Angel Michael, or any angel for that matter. It says in (Hebrews 1:5-8) For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.                                                                                                                                         Now I would like to point out that this scripture clearly says that no angel was ever called God’s son, and Jesus is known in scripture as the Son of God. These verses also make a clear distinction between Jesus and the angels. It's important to also know, that in (Hebrews 1:8) where it says Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever is quoting (Psalm 45:6) which is a scripture referring to Jehovah God Almighty, therefore (Hebrews 1:8) is a scripture declaring that Jesus, is Jehovah God.                                                                                                                                         There are so many scriptures that I could mention that show the clear teaching of Christ’s divinity, but I only listed these few for the sake of time. Many people would argue that believing that Jesus is God, is not of great importance, or essential for salvation, however I would caution you if this is your point of view and what you believe, by quoting what Jesus said to the Pharisees in the book of (John 8:24) I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.


And the final aspect of the false teachings of the Jehovah’s Witnesses that I would like to cover in this sermon, is their doctrine of salvation by works. The Bible clearly teaches in (Ephesians 2:8-9) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.                                                                                                        However the Jehovah's Witnesses reject this clear teaching, and claim that in order to gain salvation, you must exercise faith in Jesus, by obeying the commandments. They claim that the Bible teaches that you must have works, and acts of obedience, to prove your faith, and they always misusing the scripture found in (James 2:​24-26) to support this false doctrine. The Jehovah's Witnesses also believe that salvation can be lost. They teach that a person who has been saved from sins, but fails to keep exercising their faith, could lose their salvation. However I would like to point out that Bible teaching is in opposition to their Doctrine, because it says in (Romans 4:4-5) Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.                                                                                                                                       The Bible also says in (Galatians 2:16) Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.                                                                                                                              So you can see from those two scriptures, that the Jehovah’s Witnesses teaching on the subject of Salvation is unbiblical. The Jehovah’s Witnesses have created a doctrine that teaches that a man’s faith and justification before God, is measured by their own works obedience to the Law, but as I just mentioned the Bible teaches that we can only be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
