“Jehovah’s Witnesses”

Exposed

The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (or “Jehovah’s Witnesses”, or JWs) was started by
Charles Taze Russell during the 19
th
century. Spreading across more than 230 countries, the JW
religion now has over 7 million members (1). JWs go door-knocking in many cities of America,
inviting people to attend a Bible study or JW meeting. This article will expose truth that the
“Jehovah’s Witnesses” don’t want you to know about their religion.

1. False Prophecies of the “Jehovah’s Witnesses”

The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society was started by Charles Taze
Russell and has its roots in the International Bible Students'
Association, which Russell founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1872
(1).
Charles T. Russell thought of himself as some kind of prophet and he
predicted that Jesus Christ would visibly appear in 1914. This was not
the only false prediction he and other “Jehovah’s Witnesses” (JWs)
made.
The JW founder wrote in the 1908 edition of his book The Time is At Hand:
"True, it is expecting great things to claim, as we do, that within the coming twenty-six
years all present governments will be overthrown and dissolved" (The Time Is At Hand;
1889; 1908 ed.; p. 99) (Bold added)
The JWs continued making prophecies after
Charles T. Russell’s death. This prophecy comes
from the 1917 edition of The Finished Mystery:
"And the mountains were not found.
Even the republics will disappear in the
fall of 1920. And the mountains were
not found. Every kingdom of earth will
pass away, be swallowed up in
anarchy." (The Finished Mystery, 1917
edition, p. 258) (Bold added)

In 1918, the Watchtower Society predicted that
in 1925…
"Therefore we may confidently expect
that 1925 will mark the return of
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful
prophets of old, particularly those
named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to
the condition of human perfection."
(Millions Now Living Will Never Die, p.
89)

There are more false prophecies that the Watchtower Society has made over the years. None of
them have ever come to pass. Deuteronomy 18 talks about this very thing.
Deuteronomy 18:20-22
20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not
commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that
prophet shall die.
21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not
spoken?
22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come
to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it
presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

Jesus Christ also speaks about this topic.
Matthew 7:13-20
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad is
the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there be
which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and
narrow is the way, which leadeth
unto life, and few there be that
find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they
are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of
thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth
evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good
fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

2. The False Teachings of The Watchtower Bible and Tract
Society Exposed

(2.1) JWs Teach the Lie that Jesus Was a Created Being

Now, we will take a look at some of the JW teachings. Isaiah 8:20 says, "To the law and to the
testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." If
someone teaches against the Word of God (the Scripture) they are also bringing forth evil fruit.
JWs teach the false doctrine that Jesus Christ is a created being called Michael the archangel.
What does the Bible say about Jesus Christ (the Word)?

John 1:1-5
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was
made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Colossians 1:16-17
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible
and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all
things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Jesus Christ is God (John 1:1) and Jesus Christ created everyone and everything (John 1:3). The
Bible teaches that God the Father, Jesus Christ (God the Son, the Word), and the Holy Ghost (or
the Holy Spirit) are one. Jesus is not Michael. Michael is an angel Jesus Christ created (John 1:3
and Colossians 1:12-18). 1 John 5:7 reveals the truth about the real Trinity of God.
1 John 5:7
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy
Ghost: and these three are one.

(2.2) The Nimrod / Ashtoreth / Baal System Exposed

JWs say that the Doctrine of the Trinity is pagan. This is a lie. The ancient pagans after
the time of the tower of Babel twisted (corrupted) the Doctrine of the Trinity of God
(found in Genesis 1) and replaced the truth with a lie. Ancient pagans believed in a
pagan trinity of Nimrod (or Osiris, the father god), Semiramis (or Isis / Ashtoreth, the
mother god), and Tammuz (or Horus / Baal, the son god). The pagans worshipped these
three false gods in place of the True Creator God (who is God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Holy Spirit in one. See 1 John 5:7). The Holy Spirit is not female in any way, as
ancient pagans believed. He is masculine.
John 14:16-17 (bold / underline added)
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may
abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be
in you.

Pagans taught that the Spirit was a goddess who they also
worshipped as Ashtoreth (or Isis, or Semiramis, etc.). Worship of
false gods was forbidden by God. Only the true God is to be
worshiped (see Exodus 20:1-5). In Exodus 20:3, God said, “Thou
shalt have no other gods before me.” In verse 4, God said,
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image…”

3. The Old Testament teaches that Jesus Christ is God the
Father’s Only Begotten Son.
(Baal idol found at
Ras Shamra--
ancient Ugarit)

Psalm 2:7-12
7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I
begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost
parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's
vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled
but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalm 110:1 says, “The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine
enemies thy footstool.” God the Father (the first Lord), told David’s Lord (Jesus Christ) to sit at
God the Father’s right hand. This shows that God the Father’s Son (Jesus) is God.
Proverbs 30:4 says, “ Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered
the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the
ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?” This
rhetorical question clearly teaches that God the Father has a Son (Jesus Christ).
Genesis 1:26-27 also teaches the Doctrine of the Trinity:
Genesis 1:26-27
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and
over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male
and female created he them.
God has a plurality (“Let us make”) and yet He is one God (“in the image of God created he
him”). Again, this is the Doctrine of the Trinity in Genesis 1, the first book of the Bible.
4. The Watchtower Society Teaches that Only It Can
Understand the Bible.

The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society teaches that it only holds the key to understanding
God’s Word, the Bible. JWs are told that they must listen to the words of men and not seek God
to understand the Bible.
The Watchtower Magazine from October 1,
1967 says:
"Thus the Bible is an organizational book
and belongs to the Christian
congregation as an organization, not to
individuals, regardless of how sincerely
they may believe that they can interpret
the Bible," (Watchtower, Oct. 1, 1967, p.
587).
So, only the Watchtower Society can interpret the Bible? The Watchtower Magazine declares:
"Only this organization functions for Jehovah's purpose and to his praise. To it alone
God's Sacred Word, the Bible, is not a sealed book," (Watchtower, July 1, 1973, p. 402).
They are implying that to everyone else, the Bible is sealed, meaning that it cannot be properly
understood apart from the JW interpretation. The Bible clearly teaches that the Holy Spirit
reveals truth to followers of the Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:11-16
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?
even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God;
that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but
which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are
foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the
mind of Christ.
Notice how the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost) is given to true Christians to give them
understanding regarding the things of God? Verse 12 says, “Now we have received, not the
spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are
freely given to us of God.”
Listen to these other quotes from the Watchtower Society:
"It should be expected that the
Lord would have a means of
communication to his people on
the earth, and he has clearly
shown that the magazine called
The Watchtower is used for that
purpose," (1939 Yearbook of
Jehovah's Witnesses, p. 85).
"We all need help to understand
the Bible, and we cannot find the
Scriptural guidance we need
outside the 'faithful and discreet
slave' organization,"
(Watchtower, Feb. 15, 1981).

The Watchtower Society even goes so far as to say that some of their members who find fault
with JW teachings are like Satan…
"From time to time, there have arisen from among the ranks of Jehovah's people
those, who, like the original Satan, have adopted an independent, faultfinding
attitude...They say that it is sufficient to read the Bible exclusively, either alone or in
small groups at home.” (Watchtower, Aug. 15, 1981). (bold added)
These “independent” JWs are compared to Satan (“like the original Satan”) for just studying the
Bible for themselves, without the JW stamp of approval.
Jesus Christ said this about the religious leaders of the time:
Matthew 15:8-9
8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is teaching the commandments (or beliefs) of men
(which contradict the Bible) and this does not honor God. God knows the heart of men (and
women). The Watchtower Society claims that they alone hold the understanding of the Bible.
Yet, their beliefs contradict the Bible and their prophecies have not come to pass. According to
Deuteronomy 18, the JW leaders who made false prophecies are false prophets and no one
should regard them. Can an organization like that be trusted?

5. The Call to Leave "Jehovah's Witnesses”

If you, the reader, happen to be JW or are interested in that, I encourage you to turn your life
over to the true Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible and seek to know Him. Jesus Christ was born of a
virgin by the Holy Spirit overshadowing Mary (see Luke 1:35). But, Jesus Christ (God the Son)
existed before time began with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit (John 1:1, Micah 5:2, 1
John 5:7, and John 8:58). Jesus Christ created Mary and everyone who ever lived, including
Satan (Lucifer) (John 1:3 and Colossians 1:16). God created them from nothing. (Genesis 1:1,
Nehemiah 9:6, and many other verses talk about God's creation.)
Jesus Christ lived a sinless life (1 Peter 1:19), died on a Roman cross to pay for all your (and my)
sins, and rose from the dead on the third day, just as was prophesied in the Bible (see 1
Corinthians 15:3-4). He paid the great price of your (and my) sins which you (and I) could never
pay (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23).
If you believe this truth about Jesus Christ (that He alone is God the Son; that He alone was
born of a virgin; that He alone died for all your sins, that His precious blood alone will wash
away all your sins, etc.) and make Jesus Christ your personal Savior and Lord, you will be
saved.
The Bible is very clear that you (and I) must confess (tell God about) and repent (be willing to
turn) from our sin (see 1 John 1:5-10). If we don’t choose to turn away from sin, looking to God
for help, we would be making sin our master. We cannot serve God and mammon (love of
money, self, sin, etc.) (See Luke 16:13).
Now, this does not mean you have to try to remember every bad thing you said or did and
repent from it. It means that when you feel convicted about sin, repent from that sin and seek
to know God better (just talk to God).
There may not be a lot of time left for you. Death can take you at any time. Please consider this
plea and come to the true Jesus Christ for Salvation before it is too late for you. Hell is not a
pretty place to spend an eternity in.
Jeremiah 29:13
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

End Notes
The Winged-Sun-Disc can be found on the covers of Charles Taze Russell’s books.
Albert Churchward, a mason wrote this regarding the Winged-Sun-Disk:
'... the Winged-Disk, with the Uraei of Egypt, the original of which we find in the text
summarized by Naville in the "Myths of Horus," pII. xii. ff.:---"Horus commanded Thoth
that the Winged-Sun-Disk, with Uraei, should be brought into every sanctuary wherein
he dwelt, and into every sanctuary of all the gods of the lands of the South and the
North, and in Amentet, in order that they might drive away evil from therein...." This is
what is meant by the Winged-Disks, with the Uraei, which are seen over the entrances
of the courts of the temples of all the gods and goddesses of Egypt.' (Churchward,
Albert, The Signs and Symbols of Primordial Man. 1913 p. 344.)
