Do you believe that Jehovah’s Witnesses are the only true Christians on earth today?
Yes or no?
No, I mean collectively no. But individually among all claimant Christians anyone can still be saved – Christendom is another invalid collective like Bethel.
But a Christian is ALWAYS a true witness of God, for Christ is the model all Christians must be based upon:
(Revelation 3:14) . . .“And to the angel of the congregation in Laodicea write: These are the things that the Amen says, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation by God.
(It is not humans who ultimately determine who is Christian, it is God, it is judgment that will come on all men, one way, or another. So this is just my opinion as a claimant Christian.)
We Jehovah’s witnesses are NOT true Christians as a collective whole. It is now another “false religion”. Not all Jehovah’s true witnesses justify Bethel’s lawlessness. (Matt24:15)
JWs have left the faith due to UN alliances (Dan11:31b; 8:13) and other major transgression in the “organization” (2Thess2:1-4), that befouls the identity of Christ and Christian anointed; (Zech3:1-3);
Plain and simple collectively Jehovah’s witnesses are in major transgression, the most current of it’s kind.
So divine rejection of Jehovah’s witnesses will in time, as now in initial form, open up true Christianity to everyone backed again by God (Rev10:11), but one must avoid the mark – Thus Individually anyone can make the Christian final cut:
(Revelation 14:9-12) And another angel, a third, followed them, saying in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the wild beast and its image, and receives a mark on his forehead or upon his hand, 10 he will also drink of the wine of the anger of God…those who worship the wild beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name. 12 Here is where it means endurance for the holy ones, those who observe the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”
As we see it is the faith of Jesus we are talking about, faith in God and dedication to His Kingdom rule (Matt6:10) that Christ carries out as God’s “Chosen One” to recover all lost in the Adamic sin.
For now knowing the “wildbeast” is the rival world kingdom, aids not recieving the mark of anti-christianty.
Anyone passing the “hour of test” coming up will be required to prove our faith, and thus be Christian according to God’s definition by walking in faith and integrity like Christ, to their Kingdom authority and right, and Jesus provides the example and the sacrificial atonement to make that all possible.
(Matthew 19:25-26) . . .When the disciples heard that, they expressed very great surprise, saying: “Who really can be saved?” 26 Looking them in the face, Jesus said to them: “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Thus faith in God and His power, is what Christ is the perfect picture of, and it is required to conquer this world.
(1 John 5:4) . . .And this is the conquest that has conquered the world, our faith.
Thus no man, group or “religion” can pretend to take Christ’s place, and Christ is FREE to anyone desiring him and his faith, but their will be similar testing as Jesus also was tested, but those tests can be passed by true faith in God to aid the process.
(Revelation 22:17) . . .And the spirit and the bride keep on saying: “Come!” And let anyone hearing say: “Come!” And let anyone thirsting come; let anyone that wishes take life’s water free.
God and Christ assess the true motive and desire of all people, thus anyone can be saved by God’s provision and Christ’s sacrifice, sinful humans are of no issue.
(Revelation 2:23) all the congregations will know that I am he who searches the kidneys and hearts, and I will give to you individually according to your deeds.
Taking down JWs a few notches will aid the final call to all mankind.
(2 Thessalonians 2:11) So that is why God lets an operation of error go to them…
First off in all cases of God’s people from the time of Adam, to Noah, to Israel, to Christianity, “error” is permitted by God, but is from other sources.
In plain terms in today’s Jehovah’s witnesses condition, the original error was EVER considering a “governing body” existed in Jerusalem, but for a one time, loosely applied emergency council at Acts 15:1-33. Never before and never again is such a meeting formed in the Bible. The term Governing Body is not even Biblical, it had to be super imposed. It is NOT mentioned at Revelation 2-3 where Christ gives counsel to the congregations in distributed, decentralized manner, the central authority is Jesus Christ.
The 12 apostles where the first members not of a mythical “governing body” but of the “body of the Christ”. This is the ONLY “body”, divinely authorized by God, that exists in the Bible or in the world as far as taking CHRIST’S leadership fully.
Thus accepting the “governing body” “error” in the 1930s and 1940s allowed a cell of authority to be placed to in time be filled by the WBTS “board of directors”.
That old error was in time filled by the Governing Body dictatorial coup of 1976.
Within 15 years Bethel joined the UN as UN NGO.
And from that time the whole JW ministry went into it’s deepest transgressions.
The Governing Body concept was not the way the ministry was classically managed:
“Pastor Russell, the president and the other officers of the Society had been the ones to decide on new publications; the board of directors, as a body, was not consulted.”;
(From “Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Divine Purpose” WTBTS; 1959; pg. 70, par. 4; (JWDP));
Thus that “operation of error” permitted by God at Bethel, based on an early earlier basic error of discernment, is how JWs have “gradually” have all apostatized by the lead of the “Governing Body” mythical divine council.
(Daniel 8:12) And an army itself was gradually given over, together with the constant [feature], because of transgression.
And now this is the current Bethel state of the Governing Body “lifting themselves” even more so “over everyone”.
(2 Thessalonians 2:3-4) Let no one seduce you in any manner, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed, the son of destruction. 4 He is set in opposition and lifts himself up over everyone
