Who is God?

Revelation 5 Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll? But no-one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept because no-one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside.

Jehovah's Witnesses have to save themselves by pursuit of Watchtower "truth".
Jehovah's Witnesses have to save themselves by pursuit of Watchtower "truth".

The Watchtower Bible scholars have decided during decades of research on the basis of their human spirit, that Jesus could never be God. They changed on the basis of their human-oriented systematic of Bible analysis Jesus in a kind of angel, which in the overall construct of the Watchtower's plan of salvation plays a prominent, but for the believers a vanishingly minor role. His function is for the Jehovah's Witnesses a purely cognitive one. Jesus can never be active in the life of a witness of the Watchtower.

Because worshiping Jesus is for the Jehovah's Witnesses idolism. In the teachings of the Watchtower Society Jesus is only one god among many. And in the pantheon of the Watchtower Society is just one the highest: Jehovah. To raise now this Jehovah in full strength on the monotheistic pedestal Jesus has to be demoted at the Jehovah's Witnesses.

For this pedestal elevation of Jehovah the Watchtower Society combats the doctrine of the Trinity and returns back to an Old Testament-One God doctrine. By that decision the Watchtower Society is in the family of the Jewish and Islamic religions and celebrates conterminously with them the way of salvation through own performance and by progress in the quest for religious truth.

Consequently the saving power of Jesus is completely blinded out despite strict biblical faith and the Jehovah's Witness is not in the position to det saved by Jesus himself, like Jesus offeres him all round in the Bible. Thus, the Watchtower Society has managed it to push Jesus into a kind of perception that makes him completely ineffective. The life of a Jehovah's Witnesses is not touched by this Jesus at all.

As if to mock the Jehovah's Witnesses celebrate the Eucharist by all leaving the bread and wine passing!

But one passage of the Bible says that Jesus is God: Revelation 5, 6-14!

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the centre of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. He came and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song: You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth. Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they sang: Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise! Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honour and glory and power, for ever and ever! The four living creatures said, Amen, and the elders fell down and worshipped.

After no one, including Jehovah, was deemed worthy to break the seven seals of the scroll, then appears the lamb - and is worthy. That means nothing other than that Jesus is God himself. For if that should have been to be excluded then Jehovah had to be excluded from that phrase "But no-one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it". But since this is not the case, the Bible tells us at this point clearly and irrefutablely that God and Jesus are one. God is Jesus and Jesus is God.

The artificial separation that is constructed by the Watchtower Society between God and Jesus, is questioned by a lot of Bible passages. At this one point the Bible is literally heedlessly overriding the teachings of the Watchtower Society. It is placing Jesus in such a sweepingly and rigorously kind on the place of God that no one can deny that the manipulation of the Watchtower Society are purely man-made, having nothing more to do with the spirit of God - not in the slightest way.

Unfortunately, the activistic impulse of the Watchtower Society, to distract people from Jesus, may be regarded as a logistical and seductive masterpiece. Whoever is believing in the existence of Satan, can recognize here his handwriting most closely:

The Watchtower Society seems to be an institution wishing to avoid and combat from the fullest conviction against Jesus and against that people trust him. Especially those who are looking for the meaning of life, fall into the hands of these false teachers. How many have died in this heresy, a lifetime without any sign from God, without the work of the Holy Spirit, at all times relying only on the statemants of this human organization!

So it is certainly important for a believing Christians to be seriously engaged with the heresies of the Jehovah's Witnesses, that he for so many in-the-astray-leds as possible he might be a help. Because the Jehovah's Witnesses don't meet anyone who understands them, and hence they include razor-sharply that they are probably the only ones who have the truth. This is an important part of the dependence on of Watchtower Society. Therefore, Christians have to be ready to move, to testify Jesus to the Jehovah's Witnesses.

To date, the Watchtower Society was allowed to rage freely among the searchers. Hopefully, many Christians can be invoked to limit the power of this human organization!
