Are Hebrew Scripture Patriarchs In Heaven? – John 3:13

IF JESUS WAS THE FIRST TO ASCEND TO HEAVEN, WILL ELIJAH AND OTHER OLD TESTAMENT BELIEVERS BE IN HEAVEN?

John 3:13: “And no one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven, even the Son of Man.”

JEHOVAH’S WITNESS ARGUMENT:

The Watchtower Society teaches that only 144,000 people will live eternally in heaven while the rest of faithful mankind will only have the prospect of living forever in “Paradise” earth. Believing that this 144,000 heavenly group began at Pentecost (33 AD), Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that “there is nothing in the Scriptures to show that a heavenly hope was held out to God’s servants prior to the coming of Christ Jesus.”1. Thus, they assert that “David, Job and John the Baptizer” as well as “all faithful men and women who died before Jesus died.…will be resurrected to become some of the earthly subjects of God’s kingdom.”2.   In support of their belief that none of the Old Testament servants of God will be in heaven, Jehovah’s Witnesses reference John 3:13, Acts 2:34 and Matthew 11:11.

Kojo – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

KojoKOJO – Discovering errors in Watchtower doctrine, he left to follow Jesus.

Kojo started associating with the Watchtower in 1996 and was baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness in 2000. However, in the month of August the year 2012, he received deeper understanding of the Bible, which enabled him to see that all the Watchtower’s beliefs are inaccurate. For that matter, he wrote to the Watchtower Headquarters to review those beliefs and teachings. Shortly after this, Kojo discovered that the Watchtower Society does not know Jesus Christ, so he dissociated from the Watchtower Organization to search for Jesus. Through the help of this Website, he discovered Jesus Christ as the Truth and the Life and the Way.

Trish – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

trish.:TRISH V

Born and raised Jehovah’s Witness for 42 years, she experienced first-hand the hypocrisy that exists in the legalistic environment of the Watchtower organization. After suffering years of abuse in her Jehovah’s Witness marriage and failing to live up to every expectation of the Watchtower, Trish divorced her JW husband, telling him that he could have custody of the religion, and she was keeping the kids! Living in limbo with no religious affiliation to claim, God in His mercy and grace opened Trish’s eyes to the Truth of Who Jesus really is! Surrendering all to Him, she found the peace and joy she had been looking for all her life, and He even blessed her with a gentle and loving Christian husband to care for her.

.:THE TESTIMONY OF JULIE – Offers Support to Former Jehovah’s Witnesses

As a convert to Jehovah’s Witnesses, Julie believed she had found “the Truth,” but when she was mocked for reporting a “wolf” in sheep’s clothing in the congregation and told that “those verses” about wolves were “only for first century” Christians, not for Jehovah’s Organization today, she knew something was desperately wrong! At that instance when Julie saw the way elders are trained to cover-up their failures to make the organization look good, her faith in the Society was broken. She was “disfellowshipped” for “apostasy” when she refused to trust the organization over Jesus as her ONLY mediator, and today, Julie is freely serving the REAL Jehovah God in joy and truth!

.:THE TESTIMONY OF CHRISTINE (David’s wife)

Despite the sexual abuse and lack of love and acceptance she experienced when she was growing up in the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christine still believed that the Jehovah’s Witness religion was “the Truth” and served as a Regular Pioneer. But deep inside, she felt unworthy, guilty and fearful of what would happen to her at Armageddon. Finally, she cried out in desperation: “Jesus said, ‘Take my load for it is kindly and light,’ but Jehovah it’s not light! It’s more like concrete!” When Jehovah opened her eyes to Jesus her true Shepherd, she found the love, grace and security she had longed for all her life.

IS THE NEW COVENANT ONLY FOR A GROUP OF 144,000 PEOPLE? —15 Questions to Ask Jehovah’s Witnesses on the 144,000 and the Great Crowd

Of all of the doctrinal topics one can discuss with Jehovah’s Witnesses, nothing is more essential than the identity of Jesus Christ and the issues related to salvation and eternal life. Jehovah’s Witnesses have a two-class system of salvation in which they divide their followers into two groups. They call the first group the “little flock” and limit it to 144,000 members, and they call the second group the “great crowd” which is open to the rest of the population of mankind. When examining what they believe about this two-class system of salvation, it is here that we discover the greatest hole in Watchtower theology because there is not a single Scripture that supports their unique views on this issue.

.:FRANK M – Growing up with family members who were Jehovah’s Witness pedophiles, he couldn’t wait to leave this religion.

Growing up in a perverse family of pedophiles, Frank’s Jehovah’s Witness childhood was riddled with sex abuse and spiritual confusion. As a child, Frank had dreams of pleasing Jehovah and ruling with Christ, but these dreams were quickly squelched by rejection from his father and the religious hypocrisy he experienced in the Jehovah’s Witnesses. By nineteen, Frank had enough, and he left the organization. Although Frank’s spiritual journey is far from complete, he is happy to be free from the dictates of religious oppression in the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ – A Spirit or a Body?

Will the “Great Crowd” be on Earth when Armageddon breaks out?

WILL THE “GREAT CROWD” BE ON EARTH WHEN ARMAGEDDON BREAKS OUT?

Revelation 7:9, 15: “…look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…That is why they are before the throne of God; and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple…” —New World Translation

For years, Jehovah’s Witnesses have taught that the vast majority of their followers will resurrect to everlasting life upon an Earthly Paradise and that only a select group of 144,000 followers will live and reign with Jesus Christ in Heaven. These two groups of followers are called “the Earthly Class” and “the Heavenly Class.” The “Earthly Class” is also called “the Other Sheep” of John 10:16 and “the Great Crowd” of Revelation 7:9, while the “Heavenly Class” is called “the Little Flock” of Luke 12:32, “the Anointed Class” of 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 and “the 144,000” of Revelation chapters 7 and 14.  These terms are used frequently to reinforce this two-class structure of the Watchtower belief system.

How to Witness Effectively to Jehovah’s Witnesses

HOW TO WITNESS EFFECTIVELY TO JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES – Breaking the Watchtower Barrier Step-by-Step

When Jehovah’s Witnesses come to your door offering Watchtower and Awake! magazines, their only goal is to get you interested enough in their religion to consider becoming one of them.

They are not visiting you to consider your spiritual beliefs as viable options for their lives. No! They believe they already possess “the Truth.” So, in their minds, they don’t think you have anything to offer them. Their only purpose in being at your door is to teach you; not you them. So, how can a Christian get through to a Jehovah’s Witness who believes he or she already has all the answers? Continue reading “How to Witness Effectively to Jehovah’s Witnesses”

ARE JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES BORN AGAIN?

“You People Must Be Born Again.” – John 3:7 – Helping Christians Sow Seeds of the Gospel in the Hearts of Jehovah’s Witnesses

The Watchtower Society teaches Jehovah’s Witnesses that the New Covenant privileges of being “born again,” being “adopted” into God’s family, and receiving the promise of life in Heaven after death are reserved for a group of 144,000 people. 1. The Watchtower Society claims that this “Heavenly Class” (also called the “Anointed Class”) of Jehovah’s Witnesses started at the time of Christ and was filled up by the year 1935. 2.   Thus, they assert that the “other sheep” of John 10:16 are the “great crowd” of Jehovah’s Witnesses who became Witnesses after the year 1935. It is claimed that members of this second group are destined to live in a “Paradise Earth” under the authority of Jehovah’s heavenly Kingdom. 3.   This is the “gospel” that Jehovah’s Witnesses bring to your door.
