A text received this morning from a fellow Brother in Christ who happens to be in the Jehovah Witness Religion:
“Today’s Watchtower and this whole set, really emphasizes to me how Jehovah’s Witnesses are truly directed by Jehovah. It adds to the point there is only one true religion. Jehovah has always had one group of people who represented Him, that’s proven through the Bible. The bible also states there would only be “one faith”. People can think how they want, but all the time Jehovah gives clearer evidence as to His blessing upon us as a people. Here is the biggest evidence why I personally believe Jehovah’s Witnesses are the only true religion.
#1 We are the only ones following Jesus’ admonition to go therefore making disciples through the organized worldwide preaching work.
#2 We constantly test our beliefs to make sure we understand prophecies clearly, unlike other religions that believe one thing and celebrate things and never change even when there’s proof they are wrong.
#3 The scriptures state the light would get brighter and brighter as the end draws near, not even Jesus disciples knew the full meaning of prophecies spoken to them, some even misunderstood them and some believed Armageddon was going to start in Jesus’ day, and we get clearer understanding as the end draws nearer. Fortunately everyone will have a chance to recognize Jehovah’s spirit behind His organization before Armageddon and everyone will have a chance to show Faith and Love in Him through the great tribulation but they must abandon all false doctrines and beliefs they previously had. I’m so thankful I already see this and have already attached myself to the one organized group of people who do everything they can to please Jehovah and have abandoned false beliefs. Jehovah is awesome.
Good morning Brother. You are my Brother whether you see us as divided. Your first paragraph says it best: ” today’s WATCHTOWER really emphasizes..” – yes I believe you it does. That’s what I’m getting at, its ALWAYS ALWAYS the WATCHTOWER that emphasizes the point and the claim about one true religion existing. It is never the Word of Jehovah that does.
#2 That is what is engrained in your mind, to see distinctions between religions, to see differences, to FOCUS on religion, when in fact the bible does not teach that, but you will find countless Watchtowers and Awakes and publications put out by the society that do. Why do you think your always busily comparing religions, as you just did in your text? That is because that is how you are being directed by the governing body. Again, why place emphasis on what separates us? Better on what brings us in harmony and unifies us. Did Jesus not die for us ALL? For the body of believers, not a denomination. He came to bring harmony between the distinctions of Jew and Greek, of Baptist, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Methodist and the variety of different denominations out there; in order to show us what really matters most is Faith in Him, and His Heavenly Father.
What will you say to Him, when he asks you why were you so focused on what separates us, when what separates us CANNOT not save a single soul or is able to give us eternal life? It is Jesus that does. Belief in him, that he has been raised from the Dead.
Tell me does this require a denomination to believe this?
Truth seekers like you, and me, although mislead on certain points like this religion one, shall be forgiven, because we have the right thirst and hunger to serve him.
You see a Jehovah Witness can teach someone hungry and thirsty for God’s Word, who does not know the Word for themselves, but once someone already knows the Word, it becomes very challenging due to the contradictions between the Word and what the society is telling you the Word says through the various publications they have available. In the end Brother remember- I shall be there and you shall set eyes upon me, and I shall set my eyes upon you and I shall embrace you with the same warm brotherly love with which you once embraced me, before you deemed me to be part of false religion and before I decided not to join your denomination.
It’s very saddening you feel that way. The Bible does give clear evidence to what I told you, that the Watchtower is derived from it. It’s also really sad you can’t really see the Bible. God’s Word clearly shows Jehovah has always had a group of People to represent Him on earth but you cant see it. Hopefully one day you will see clearly Jehovah has tried drawing you numerous times but you keep ignoring it, before its too late.
Don’t be sad for me Brother, be happy. For we have both been called in to serve through his forgiving grace. Will you be sad for me when you see me standing there with you once we have made it? Or will you feel cheated somehow because I obtained salvation and I was NOT a Witness? Remember Brother, we were born into this world FIRST from our Heavenly Father, then we grew into men, so we were children of God FIRST, before you EVER became a baptized member of Jehovah’s Witnesses, meaning you may be a Witness, but you are a believer in Jesus Christ FIRST and foremost, then you accepted you denomination. Therefore making you and I both believers FIRST, both in harmony with what matters most, and what shall gain us salvation.
