Who are the Jehovah's Witnesses

The look on the madman's face above, pretty much sums up the Jehovah's Witnesses, totally crazy. Maybe not as crazy as the Mormons, but still totally crazy. There are however 8.7 million people who would completely disagree with me. That is the current number of witnesses in the world today, with over 1 million in the United States alone. From my own research, this whole organization screams religious cult. Like all cults they use fear and intimidation get what they want. Let's take a dive into the shady world of the Jehovah's witnesses.

The Jehovah's witnesses or the watchtower society, was founded by Charles Taze Russell in 1889. He predicted the end of the world would happen by 1914. He printed this profound revelation in a magazine called The Watchtower. This publication would go on to snare thousands of people. Russell claimed that Biblical interpretation was impossible without his guidance and study without his guidance lead to spiritual darkness. Russell claimed he had divine revelation from God. He said that in 1799 the world entered into the time of the end, in 1874 Jesus returned to earth invisibly and set into motion the end of the world which would happen by 1914. All who followed the teachings of the watchtower society would be spared from the apocalypse and go on to live forever in heaven. 1914 came and went, leaving many followers crushed and disturbed. Russell and the society leaders changed the date to 1915, then to 1918, then to 1925. They said that in 1918, demons would invade the minds of Christians, who they refer to as the swine class. Witnesses hate christians, but more on that later. After none of these prophecies came to light, the group needed a new direction. Newly elected president Joseph Franklin Rutherford, introduced the "millions now living will never die" campaign. He urged followers go out into the world and tell everyone that the end is coming. This was the first recruiting effort of the witnesses. Many witnesses sold their homes and hit the road, living in their cars, going door to door telling people the end is coming. This fear mongering tactic brought in thousands of new recruits and started an outreach program that is still going strong to this day. As the depression set in Joseph Franklin Rutherford, built a lavish mansion in San Diego named Beth Sarim (house of princes) which he deeded to Abraham, Isaic, and Jacob, as their home upon resurrection. In the meantime Rutherford lived there, he spent his summers in Europe, and owned two 16 cylinder Cadillacs. All while the rest of the country was crippled by the great depression. The doomsday prophecies continued when the watchtower society announced 1975 as the next end of the world. This brought in a flood of new members as once again witnesses forsook all they had to bring in new recruits. When the end did not come they were devastated and many lives were ruined.

What does becoming a Jehovah's witness entail? First of all the type of people attracted to the organization are usually lonely and emotionally damaged. They are looking for a sense of belonging. Some are even looking for exclusivity, "the people who will not perish in Armageddon". Once a person joins the witnesses, they all strongly encouraged to be baptised. Upon baptism witnesses are sworn to an oath of Loyalty, baptism is a pledge for life. If anyone defects they are shunned by the organization, as well as friends and family members. Members are strictly forbidden from communication with any former members. That means parents can never see their children again, siblings can never talk again, husbands and wives can never see each other again. They can not attend the funeral of loved ones or visit them in the hospital. Witnesses will stake out these places to make sure these people are not going near each other. Witnesses can not vote or hold office, celebrate holidays, go to the ymca, salute the flag, sing the national anthem, serve in the military, read material critical of the Jehovah's Witnesses, or go to church. This is very hard on the children of witnesses, they struggle greatly in school because of this. They are not allowed to play with the other kids or participate in activities. This makes them subject to bullying that can lead to suicide. Being shunned by family members can also lead to suicide. There are endless cases of child sexual abuse within the organization. Like the Mormons, the witnesses also excuse this disgusting behavior. Going to great lengths to cover up any allegations made against members. Witnesses must refuse most medical treatment, instead letting their children die. Witness elders will come to the hospital to intervene. This does not fly at hospitals and parents are charged with child abuse. Because witnesses can not serve in the military, Mexican witnesses bribed officials to keep them out of the service. When the governing body of the witnesses found out, they allowed it. They will excuse fraud to adhere to ridiculous rules. They say their rules are ordained by god. What kind of God would allow such things? This is clearly a man made religion.

What do the Jehovah's witnesses believe? They believe that salvation is by grace plus works. One must earn their way to heaven. This doctrine is straight from the pit of hell. They originally believed they were the 144,000 spoken of in Revelation 14. After membership grew to well over that amount, they had to yet again, change their doctrine. they are now a 2 class religion. The anointed (144,000 guaranteed a place in heaven) and the other sheep. The other sheep must spend their eternity on earth and never go to heaven. They can however earn a place in heaven by going door to door selling material and gaining converts. Members must submit a monthly time report for door to door work. Witnesses believe Jesus is a spirit angel and was the first creation of God. In heaven he was Michael the archangel. On earth Jesus was 100% man and became the Christ only after being baptised. They hold the cross in contempt as a pagan symbol of apostate Christians. They believe Jesus died on an upright stake. When Christ died they say his body was laid in a tomb and disintegrated completely. Jesus was recreated by the father and took on many forms, before returning to heaven to become Michael the Archangel. Witnesses believe Satan's truth is as good as God's truth. They have their own bible translation: The New World Translation. It was translated by new age occultist Johannes Greber with the help of his wife, a self proclaimed medium. Looks like these people were channeling the spirit world to translate the Lord's word.

Leviticus 20:6 - And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

Deuteronomy 18:

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Charles Taze Russell taught that the Great Pyramid in Egypt, was put here by God as a second witness after the bible. He got his dates from the measurements of the passageways in the Great Pyramid. This is numerology, a favorite technique of the occult. An obsession with Egypt is also a favorite of the occult. Egypt represents Satan's world in the bible (kJV).

Witnesses believe the creature leviathan in the Bible is a locomotive and part of prophecy. They see Christians as low life scum of the earth, living in spiritual darkness and destroying the word of God.

Now let's get to the core of the JW's, MONEY!!! They oversee a vast long-term real estate portfolio. They do this knowing that the end of the world is coming soon. They are a multi-billion dollar organization that receives vast tax exemptions. They are run by a board of shrewd businessmen. The leaders in my eyes are money hungry psychopaths, who seem to have the same attributes as cult leaders. Stay away from this organization at all costs!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed this article. If you are not a Christian, I invite you to get saved now. Tomorrow may be to late. To get saved all you have to do, is admit that you are a sinner and that Jesus Christ died for your sins. The only way to take away sins is with the pure shed blood of Jesus Christ. Good works can not take away sins. If they could, then Jesus Christ died in vain. Jesus died, was buried, and rose from the dead as payment for all sins. Once you believe that, you are saved forever. You did nothing to earn it and you can do nothing to lose it.

I Corinthians 15

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Ephesians 2

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Titus 3

5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Revelation 1

5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
