Jehovah’s Witnesses: A History Of Failed Prophecies And Deception

Jehovah's Witnesses trace their origins to the nineteenth century Adventist movement in America. That movement began with William Miller, a Baptist lay preacher who, in the year 1816, began proclaiming that Christ would return in 1843.

Jehovah's Witness leaders for over 100 years have claimed to be God's only living "prophet" on the face of the earth. However, if one looks at their record, the documented evidence proves they are what Jesus described as "false prophets!" Most Jehovah's Witneses have no clue about the true history of their organization. The false prophecies that we will list here are barely 10% of the total of false prophecies they have made since 1877.

“And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” 2 Timothy 2:26 (KJV)

Unlike the bible which never changes, the doctrine of the Jehovah’s Witnesses has changed markedly over time as the things that they have predicted to come true…haven’t. In 1920, they published a book called “Millions Now Living Will Never Die“. Well, nearly all of those people are now dead. Do they admit their false prophecy? Of course not. Instead, they simply republish the book with the title of “Millions Now Dead Will Live Again“. (Watchtower, May 1, 1990). This is what is known in the used car business as a cover up. Or a lie. Take your pick.

How the Jehovah’s Witnesses got started

Jehovah’s Witnesses trace their origins to the nineteenth century Adventist movement in America. That movement began with William Miller, a Baptist lay preacher who, in the year 1816, began proclaiming that Christ would return in 1843. His predictions of the Second Coming or Second Advent captured the imagination of thousands in Baptist and other mainline churches. Perhaps as many as 50,000 followers put their trust in Miller’s chronological calculations and prepared to welcome the Lord, while, as the appointed time approached, others watched nervously from a distance. Recalculations moved the promised second advent from March, 1843 to March, 1844, and then to October of that year. Alas, that date too passed uneventfully.

What Jehovah’s Witnesses Actually Believe:

After the “Disappointment of 1844” Miller’s following fell apart, with most of those who had looked to him returning to their respective churches before his death in 1849. But other disappointed followers kept the movement alive, although in fragmented form. Their activities eventually led to the formation of several sects under the broad heading of “Adventism” including the Advent Christian Church, the Life and Advent Union, the Seventh-Day Adventists, and various Second Adventist groups. An interesting side-note: The Branch Davidians who died at Waco, Texas, under the leadership of David Koresh also trace their roots to the same Millerite source through a different line of descent. In 1935 the Seventh Day Adventist Church expelled a Bulgarian immigrant named Victor Houteff, who had begun teaching his own views on certain passages of the Revelation or Apocalypse, the last book of the Bible. Houteff set up shop on the property at Waco.

After first referring to his tiny new sect as The Shepherd’s Rod, Houteff and his people in 1942 incorporated and renamed themselves Davidian Seventh Day Adventists. Houteff died in 1955, and in 1961 his wife Florence officially disbanded the sect, but a few followers under the leadership of west Texas businessman Benjamin Roden took over the real estate. Roden died in 1978, leaving behind his wife Lois and his son George to lead the group. Then, in 1987, David Koresh took over the leadership position, and the tragedy that followed is public knowledge. Jehovah’s Witnesses, likewise, trace their roots back to the Adventists. But they do not often admit this to outsiders; nor do many Witnesses know the details themselves. JWs are accustomed to defending themselves against the charge that they are a new religious cult. They will often respond that theirs is the most ancient religious group, older than Catholic and Protestant churches. In fact, their book Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Divine Purpose asserts that “Jehovah’s witnesses have a history almost 6,000 years long, beginning while the first man, Adam, was still alive,” that Adam’s son Abel was “the first of an unbroken line of Witnesses,” and that “Jesus’ disciples were all Jehovah’s witnesses [sic] too.” (pp. 8-9) An outsider listening to such claims quickly realizes, of course, that the sect has simply appropriated unto itself all the characters named in the Bible as faithful witnesses of God. By such extrapolation the denomination is able to stretch its history back to the beginnings of the human family-at least in the eyes of adherents who are willing to accept such arguments. But outside observers generally dismiss this sort of rhetoric and instead reckon the Witnesses as dating back only to Charles Taze Russell, who was born on February 16, 1852, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

5 Facts Jehovah’s Witnesses Don’t Want You to Know:

Originally raised a Presbyterian, Russell was 16 years old and a member of the Congregational church in the year 1868, when he found himself losing faith. He had begun to doubt not only church creeds and doctrines, but also God and the Bible itself. At this critical juncture a chance encounter restored his faith and placed him under the influence of Second Adventist preacher Jonas Wendell. For some years after that Russell continued to study Scripture with and under the influence of various Adventist laymen and clergy, notably Advent Christian Church minister George Stetson and the Bible Examiner’s publisher George Storrs. He met locally on a regular basis with a small circle of friends to discuss the Bible, and this informal study group came to regard him as their leader or pastor. In January, 1876, when he was 23 years old, Russell received a copy of The Herald of the Morning, an Adventist magazine published by Nelson H. Barbour of Rochester, New York. One of the distinguishing features of Barbour’s group at that time was their belief that Christ returned invisibly in 1874, and this concept presented in The Herald captured Russell’s attention.

It meant that this Adventist splinter group had not remained defeated, as others had, when Christ failed to appear in 1874 as Adventist leaders had predicted; somehow this small group had managed to hold onto the date by affirming that the Lord had indeed returned at the appointed time, only invisibly. Was this mere wishful thinking, coupled with a stubborn refusal to admit the error of failed chronological calculations? Perhaps, but Barbour had some arguments to offer in support of his assertions. In particular, he came up with a basis for reinterpreting the Second Coming as an invisible event: In Benjamin Wilson’s Emphatic Diaglott translation of the New Testament the word rendered coming in the King James Version at Matthew 24:27, 37, 39 is translated presence instead. This served as the basis for Barbour’s group to advocate, in addition to their time calculations, an invisible presence of Christ. Although the idea appealed to young Charles Taze Russell, the reading public apparently refused to ‘buy’ the story of an invisible Second Coming, with the result that N. H. Barbour’s publication The Herald of the Morning was failing financially.

In the summer of 1876 wealthy Russell paid Barbour’s way to Philadelphia and met with him to discuss both beliefs and finances. The upshot was that Russell became the magazine’s financial backer and was added to the masthead as an Assistant Editor. He contributed articles for publication as well as monetary gifts, and Russell’s small study group similarly became affiliated with Barbour’s. Russell and Barbour believed and taught that Christ’s invisible return in 1874 would be followed soon afterward, in the spring of 1878 to be exact, by the Rapture-the bodily snatching away of believers to heaven. When this expected Rapture failed to occur on time in 1878, The Herald’s editor, Mr. Barbour, came up with “new light” on this and other doctrines. Russell, however, rejected some of the new ideas and persuaded other members to oppose them. Finally, Russell quit the staff of the Adventist magazine and started his own. He called it Zion’s Watch Tower and Herald of Christ’s Presence and published its first issue with the date July, 1879. In the beginning it had the same mailing list as The Herald of the Morning and considerable space was devoted to refuting the latter on points of disagreement, Russell having taken with him a copy of that magazine’s mailing list when he resigned as assistant editor. At this point Charles Russell no longer wanted to consider himself an Adventist, nor a Millerite. But, he continued to view Miller and Barbour as instruments chosen by God to lead His people in the past. The formation of a distinct denomination around Russell was a gradual development.

False teachings of the Jehovah’s Witnesses:

  • On the nature of God. They deny the triune nature of God and teaches that such a belief is inspired by Satan and teaches that Jehovah, the name of the one true God, corresponds only to God the Father. JWs also deny that Jesus is God (see next point). They deny the Holy Spirit is a person, and instead teach he is merely God’s active force, similar to electricity.
  • On the deity of Jesus Christ. The JW’s that Jesus is a created being who existed as Michael the archangel before being born as a perfect man. JWs believe that after Jesus was buried, God disposed of his physical body. He was raised a spiritual creature and “materialized” to make himself visible. Now in heaven he is once again known as Michael the archangel.
  • On salvation. The JW’s teach that only an elite group of Witnesses, known as “the 144,000,” or the “anointed ones” are presently credited with Christ’s righteousness. Only the 144,000 are born again and expect to reign with Christ in heaven. For the vast majority of remaining JWs, known as the “other sheep” or the “great crowd,” the atoning sacrifice of Christ only provides a chance at eternal life on earth. This is interesting because in the bible, the 144,000 are all males, all Jewish, and all from the nation of Israel. This is very much in contrast to the JW teaching on the 144,000.
  • On Hell and eternal punishment. Jehovah’s Witness denies eternal punishment and teaches that the soul cannot exist apart from the body. JWs believe that death ends all conscious existence. Hell refers to the grave and those who are ultimately judged by God will be annihilated and simply cease to exist.
  • On the Bible. Jehovah’s Witness teaches that the Bible can only be interpreted by the Watchtower Society and no individual can learn the truth apart from them.

Failed prophecies of the Jehovah’s Witnesses:

Jehovah’s Witness leaders for over 100 years have claimed to be God’s only living “prophet” on the face of the earth. However, if one looks at their record, the documented evidence proves they are what Jesus described as “false prophets!” Most Jehovah’s Witneses have no clue about the true history of their organization. The false prophecies that we will list here are barely 10% of the total of false prophecies they have made since 1877.

  • 1877 ‘The End Of This World; that is the end of the gospel and the beginning of the millennial age is nearer than most men suppose; indeed we have already entered the transition period, which is to be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation Dan. 12:3.” (N.H. Barbour and C.T. Russell, Three Worlds, and the Harvest of This World, p. 17).
  • 1879 “Christ came in the character of a Bridegroom in 1874…. at the beginning of the Gospel harvest.” (Watchtower, Oct 1879, p. 4)
  • 1880 “We need not here repeat the evidences that the “seventh trump” began its sounding A.D., 1840, and will continue until the end of the time of trouble, and the end of “The times of the Gentiles,” A.D., 1914, and that it is the trouble of this “Great day,” which is here symbolically called the voice of the Archangel when he begins the deliverance of fleshly Israel. “At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince (Archangel) which standeth for the children of thy people and there shall be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation.” Dan. xii. 1. Nor will we here, again present the conclusive Bible proof that our Lord came for his Bride in 1874, and has an unseen work as Reaper of the first-fruits of this Gospel Age. (Zion’s Watchtower November, 1880 p. 1)
  • 1886 “The outlook at the opening of the New Year has some very encouraging features. The outward evidences are that the marshaling of the hosts for the battle of the great day of God Almighty, is in progress while the skirmishing is commencing. … The time is come for Messiah to take the dominion of earth and to overthrow the oppressors and corrupters of the earth, (Rev. 19:15 and 11:17, 18) preparatory to the establishment of everlasting peace upon the only firm foundation of righteousness and truth.” (Zion’s Watchtower, January, 1886;Watchtower reprints I, p. 817)
  • 1889 “Remember that the forty years’ Jewish Harvest ended October A.D. 69, and was followed by the complete overthrow of that nation; and that likewise the forty years of the Gospel age harvest will end October, 1914, and that likewise the overthrow of ‘Christendom,’ so-called, must be expected to immediately follow.” (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 245)
  • 1908 “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)
  • 1914 “While it’s possible that Armageddon may begin next Spring, yet this purely speculation to attempt to say just when. We see, however, that there are parallels between the close of the Jewish age and this Gospel age. These parallels seem to point to the year just before us part particularly the early months.” (Watchtower Reprints, VI, Sept 1, 1914, p. 5527)
  • 1917 “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)
  • 1918 “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)
  • 1925 “The year 1925 is here. With great expectation Christians have looked forward to this year. Many have confidently expected that all members of the body of Christ will be changed to heavenly glory during this year. This may be accomplished. It may not be. In his own due time God will accomplish his purposes concerning his people. Christians should not be so deeply concerned about what may transpire this year.” (Watchtower, Jan. 1, 1925, p. 3

    So many have been deceived, including some of my friends. They have been “…made to believe a lie…” It is so sad.

    • ukata ukata

      John 17:3 in your Bible says: “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.”
      God Almighty is one, just like Moses declared to the Israelite and it is clear that He sent His Son Jesus Christ. So the Bible says. And from that John 1-2 Jesus revealed that it is only His father God Almighty glorified him and gave him authority. There is a giver and a receiver here.
      Even many other religious sects that are not Christians know that Almighty is not three but One.
      Those who became confused when Jesus said “I and my father are One.” should learn from the saying in the Bible that said “When a woman and man get married, they become one flesh.”
      This is in terms of agreement and not that they become co-joined like twins and become one.
      Jesus never made himself equal with his father who sent him rather theologians and co. Even when he was being baptized a voice that came down from heaven which is the voice of the Almighty said
      “This is my beloved (son) in whom (I) am well pleased..”
      It never read, “This is (God) the (son) with whom we are (one).” God truly knows the identity of His son and can never make a mistake.

      If you have a Bible make use of it and Read:

      Revelation 3:14; Colosians 1:15-17
      Galatians 4:4; Hebrews 2:9
      Matthew 3: 16, 17
      Philippians 2:9,10

      • Skywatcher

        So, ukata ukata, what do you do with Gen. 1: 26 which states, “Let US make man in OUR image and likeness”?

        If this is the only “weak link” YOU find in genuine Holy Bible-believing Christianity, in defense of your cult, I would say that is quite good, compared to the MANY fallacies in your Watch Tower Organization. The Trinity is throughout Scripture, and you cannot compare apples to oranges, as I believe you are doing here.

        When you encourage us to look up the references you have provided, are these from your NWT or from the KJV? They do not align with each other, as I’m sure you know.

      • Edwitness

        Ukata ukata,
        Gen.1 says that God created the heavens and the earth. Col.1:16 and Rev.4:11 tell us that Jesus created ALL things. Not to mention John1:1&14 which state that the word (Jesus) was and is God. Not “a” god as JWs teach. Rev.1:7-2:20 clearly state that Jesus is the Almighty God. The Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending.
        It is true that they are one in agreement. But, it is also true that they are one in the fact that they 3 are the Creator of all things.
        This is what makes God God. He is Creator. We are creation. Rom.1:20.
        Blessings:-}

        • Skywatcher

          Edwitness, that was a great reply, however, you made a very serious error with your last word, “Blessings”!

          2 John 10 commands, “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

          That means we are not to as much as say, “God bless you” or “blessings” to them… How can we bless the works of the devil? I know I have to watch myself in this regard when conversing with them because I’m so used to blessing people.

          • Edwitness

            Skywatcher,
            Thanks. I stand corrected.

        Question:

        “Jesus himself admitted that the Father is the only true God. Since Trinitarians believe that the Father and the Son are distinct Persons, that they are not the same Person, wouldn’t this prove that Jesus denied that he was God?”

        Answer:
        The person who raises this question is obviously assuming Unitarianism, that there is only one Person who is God (namely the Father), and then imposes this assumption onto the reading of the text. The only thing one has to do in order to understand Jesus’ point here is to simply read the entire context:

        John 17:1-5, 8, 10-11, 20-26:

        We note from the foregoing that:
        Jesus is God’s Son.
        Jesus gives eternal life to all that God gives him, which is a claim to being absolute Deity since only God can give eternal life.
        Jesus existed in glory with the Father even before the world was created.
        Jesus demands to be glorified by God, something which no mere creature could ever demand.
        Jesus states that everything that the Father has belongs to him, which makes him the heir of everything that exists.
        Jesus indwells all the believers, an indication that Christ is omnipresent and therefore God since God alone is omnipresent.
        Jesus is the object of the Father’s love even before the creation of the world.

        Thus, the context makes it clear that Jesus’ statement about the Father being the only true God in no way was meant to deny that Christ is God as well, since he goes on to make claims that only God could make. Jesus is simply addressing the Father for being the only true God since this is what he truly is, and yet we know from the same Bible that the only true God exists as more than one Person. The Holy Scriptures plainly show that both the Son and the Holy Spirit are also truly God…. http://www.answering-islam.org/Shamoun/q_john17_3.htm

    Good article! Sadly the saga of false teaching continues, and will, in till the Son of The Almighty comes! False teaching is everywhere including the “christian” sect. Very sad.

    • Mark Crowder

      That’s not fair I’m a Christian and this is garbage, don’t associate this w/ our beliefs! at least we don’t go around cutting peoples head for not converting, folks that have this opinion are just ignorant!

      • Skywatcher

        Mark Crowder, you might as well be cutting heads off; you’re leading them into eternal Hell and the Lake of Fire with your false teachings coming out of a counterfeit bible (New World Translation), that was “doctored up” by homosexuals, lesbians, and Satanists! I can quote you proofs if you like!

        One example of such blatant false doctrine is what your “scriptures say in John 1: 1, “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was A god.” That implies there are many gods! This is true, but they’re man-made! However, there is only one true God…the Almighty God of the Holy Bible.

        I have J.W. friends who would NOT call themselves “Christian” as you do; that’s anathema to them! They see themselves as being better than that, and we are alien heathen!

        You don’t serve God…Jehovah, Jehovah Jireh, Adonai, El Shaddai, etc. You serve an organization! The Watch Tower Society! You might want to snap out of your indoctrinated trance, and really search the King James version of the Scriptures which are the most reliable and credible! After all…your eternal destiny rests upon the truth, which you obviously currently do not possess!

        We do NOT speak out about these things with hatred or malice; we speak out because very beautiful people are wasting their time and lives purporting false doctrines that do NOT align with the copies original manuscripts! Your “scriptures” were taken from the Alexandrian texts which the early Church Fathers deemed to be heretical in nature…full of errors!

        Articles like this one show that genuine Christians care enough about you to try to show you the errors of the J.W. cult. I have testimonies from people who “defected” from the Kingdom Hall of Russell, and they adamantly agree with what Bro. Geoffrey has posted here! Correction sometimes hurts, but it yields wonderful benefits afterwards: Heb. 12: says it so plainly, and I’ll type it out so you have the correct translation:

        v. 5b: “…My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8. But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits and live? 10. For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 11. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.”

        I trust you will overcome the intense indoctrination of the society and do some serious comparisons of the KJV and your NWT! Again, your soul relies upon you knowing the truth!

  • Mrs M

    Thanks for the information, however you need to correct one point. You wrote: “This is interesting because in the bible, the 144,000 are all males, all Jewish, and all from the nation of Israel.” (They are not all Jewish)

    4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.5Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

    We should understand why and how some of the tribes were deleted and added, it would explain a lot. God bless you and your work.

    • All the tribes in Revelation are all Jews.

      • Skywatcher

        Geoffrey, that is a mighty powerful article again! You’re on a roll! Thank you, for sharing this! Too bad real genuine and Spirit-filled and Spirit-led Christians don’t possess the same kind of religious fervor and desire to take Christ door-to-door as the J.W.s do! They and the Morons wouldn’t have the strong foothold on peoples’ minds as they do today!

        I believe Mark 8: 38 addresses our reason for not being so “out there”: “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

        I know you’re out there, but a great many others are NOT!

    • aka Glory

      The 144,000 in book of Revelations are all male, and ONLY OF THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL, there are two tribes that are deleted and not allowed to be sealed because they have totally walked away from God and His Word, those were: Dan and Manasseh will not be protected because they went the way of Ishtar, the pagan religion. The 12,000 JEWS of the tribe of : Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, Ephraim, Benjamin, Gad, Asher, Naphtali will be sealed and protected in the Great Tribulation. Not for any gentile. ONLY JEWS protected, all the rest will suffer the worst holocaust not imagined if they don’t become a Christian before the LORD returns. And OBEY Acts 2:38, given to them by PETER. The “ELECT” in the book of Revelations is the LORD’s treasure: ISRAEL, it is NOT THE ‘Church’ (Book of Acts Churches), which go in the Rapture and will not be left behind.
      After the Rapture there will be NO CHURCH or SYNAGOGUE of any kind. There will be the 3rd temple for the Jews to worship in for first 3 1/2 years and then the Antichrist, stops the sacrifices and takes the throne…etc etc. for last 3 1/2 years. I asked the JW at the door, and which tribe do you belong to? They were speechless..and left.

  • Jimmy

    Great article brother! I asked a JW who last came to my door if they were going to be in Heaven with the Lord and the rest of the 144000 when they died or would they simply be stuck on their alleged “new earth” when they died.

    They didn’t know.

    I told them that I don’t listen to anyone that doesn’t know 100% for a fact were they’re going when they die!

    • Thank you! I have never met a JW that knew anything about the Bible, they only know JW doctrine.

  • FUN FACT: If you ever want to get rid of a JW, just start mentioning the Name of Jesus, and they start to squirm. I have tried it and it works every time. There is something about that Name that just aggravates them beyond belief.

    The Jehovah Witnesses are a Satanic organization, based upon the occult of Freemasonry. Charles Taze Russell was a 33rd Degree Freemason; as was Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon cult. Carefully notice the Masonic cross at the upper left corner of the photo below...of Jehovah witness flyer on site: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/Jehovah%20Witnesses/jw.htm Russell and the Watch Tower Bible and Track Society in the Greatest Masonic Center Cemetery. Plus I noticed myself, the cross/crown is placed INSIDE THE VISHNU/CHAKRA / SHIVA DISC OF DESTRUCTION WITH THE RAYS. The knight in the right hand corner has all the tools of protection/ destruction of HINDU VISHNU. / Illuminati, Jesuit sources. Vishnu holds the same weapons of protection. Crusader knight. Below: Notice the Freemasonry cross, the Knights Templar symbol. Charles Taze Russell was a Knights Templar. Notice the Masonic cross in this Freemasonry meeting hall matches the same design used in Jehovah Witness. "The founders of both "faiths," the Mormons and Jehovah's witnesses, were of the Illuminati bloodline. Charles Taze Russell, who founded the Watchtower Society (Jehovah Witnesses), was of the Illuminati Russell bloodline, which also founded the infamous Skull and Bones Society at Yale University. Charles Taze Russell was a Satanist, a pedophile according to his wife, and a friend of the Rothschilds. Indeed it was the Rothschilds who funded the Jehovah's Witness operation into being, along with other Illuminati bankers, through "contributions" by organizations like the Rothschild-controlled B'nai B'rith. This was proved in a court of law in 1922. One of the key people involved in this was Frank Goldman who later became President of B'nai B'rith. Why would an organization set up (in theory) to help Jewish people and promote the Jewish faith, be funding into existence the Jehovah's Witnesses??? I think the name Rothschild answers the question. Russell was also a high degree Freemason and Knights Templar. He promoted Zionism, another Rothschild creation (see Hitler was a Rothschild), on behalf of his friends and backers. In his book The Watchtower & the Masons Fritz Springmeier says:

    “It has always been disconcerting that the Masons are so adept at smokescreens. The leader of the Anti-Masonic political party in the 1830-1840’s turned out to be a Mason. Both C.T. Russell and J. Rutherford printed material that was less than favorable to Freemasonry. And yet I now know that C.T. Russell was a Freemason, a Knights Templar. I also know that Rutherford worked intimately with Freemasons who were his good friends.”

    Also, the Jehovah Witness are taught all Pentecostals, who speak in Unknown tongues as the spirit gives the utterance, is of the devil. So when they came to my door. I had them open their bibles to Acts chap. 2:1-5 and it said in their bible the holy spirit was poured out, not the devil or satan and they could not explain it. They left bewildered and after one hour with my testimony. JW is not of God, it is created from Free Mason Illuminati connections. to cause more divisions to drive more people away from the Truth in God’s word and in the Book of Acts to the CHURCH that the LORD created.

    Hi Geoffrey.
    I’m blessed by your site & teachings.
    I try to educate others on the doctrinal lies of the JW movement, Mormons, 7th Day, and other occult followings. In my research, I have read that Charles Taze Russell as well as Joseph Smith (Mormons) were Free Masons which we know they practice in luciferian doctrine. Evil men such as these two would use their occults to deceive the lost sheep. Unfortunately, I have family members in both the JW and masons. I should pray for them more than I do. God Bless, your brother Christ – Spencer

    I am so glad I got out from the JWs. The only way they will wake up is if they test the spirits 1 john 4.1. Unfortunately they are told not to trust the internet that it’s satans tool, yet have their own website huh.They have a false bible, and I have seen changes in the NWT with my own eyes just comparing their older bible, they make the changes gradually. I worry for people I have known since a child because there is no getting through to them barely even talk to me they wont test the spirits, they trust the governing body and wathtower completely no questions asked. I have questioned the false prophecy of 1914 and numerous other dates and hey say that they only got it slightly wrong and that was the year that Jesus became King in Heaven so in a way they were right I asked how they know that and they said because the governing body are in communication with heavenly bodies, I said if that was so why did they prophecy wrong dates they said because they get new insight as and when God wants to reveal it to them. Also when I had a bible study with them we didn’t reda the bible we read a study book which would quote bible verses but explain what they meant. They would ask me to read certain verses always the same ones and I knew what they meant yet they would tell me they meant something else so its total mind control really. Such a shame, my Dad was an elder in the JWs before he died and they DO cover for peadophiles too, there was at least 1 I knew of at our congregation 30 yrs ago but they say if they repent then become witnesses then they would keep it private but keep eye on them. But think all that is coming out in the open now, Luke 12.2.

      Carson…that was excellent, laughing out loud also. I usually tell them i am Book of Acts Pentecostal filled with baptism of the Holy Ghost and speak in unknown tongues and then never return. But you are right, they are all virgins, and I ask them which JEWISH TRIBE they belong to? If they cannot answer i say will i guess you are wasting your time evangelizing if you are not going to heaven. They also teach heaven and hell are on earth, all the same place. Then I said how come we still have tears, there is none in heaven. Then if it is all the same place, throw out your bible and have a party…..you aren’t going anywhere, so what would be the point of having a bible if this is It. God Bless….

  • Am I a dog’s head?

    The JW’s are very tough to deal with as they don’t respond well to reason and logic. Showing them all the failed prophecies from the Watchtower has no effect on them whatsoever. I tried every approach I know how and read book after book on how to deal with the witnesses, all to no avail. I’m praying that God will somehow take down their headquarters in Brooklyn (with no one getting hurt of coarse) and wipe out their printing presses. Without that, they have nothing.

      romans 10:13-17, john 1:13, 2nd timothy 2:25 and the famous verses on 1 planting and 1 watering but God causes the growth along with none come to Christ unless the Father draws them and many more…so maybe seeds were planted in just one of them, maybe those seeds will sprout one day..:))
      Keep on keeping on in Christ as lead of the Spirit sharing with grace the word of God to any. There is much rejoicing in heaven when even 1 sinner repents.

      ( I said that because I hear sometimes people say–I didn’t reach ______..so I ‘failed’, and they feel like giving up (others say it sometimes not that you did), but it’s God who grants faith. So plant and so water God causes the growth.)

      DOG…The way to save a ‘city’ is to pray that the LORD changes the hearts and minds of the people to JESUS CHRIST. That is the best defeat over Satan and his princes. See John Paul Jackson…excellent on Spiritual Warfare. We pray for the people, then the city will change, then the demonic prince of that city has to fly off his post and move on to another place. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Pray for the people and the evil will have to flee. They asked the LORD “how to pray?” He gave them the LORDS PRAYER…..that is how we pray. It is his will that none are lost. Perfect LOVE casteth all fear and evil. The absence of hate is perfect love, that is why he said LOVE YOUR ENEMY….that will defeat any evil….forgiveness….no bitterness….LOVE LOVE LOVE…it defeats the enemy every time.

  • Kelly

    I’m really disappointed that this site didn’t get their facts right about JW. I grew up going there even though I do not now I can tell you factually not once were we ever taught that Jesus was Michael the arch angel .Jesus is Gods son period …Our King..your just another site spewing your perceptions without knowing what your talking about,I’m so disappointed,another wolf in sheeps clothing. deceiving the people,shame on you. Everyone has negative comments while you all probably celebrated Christmas which has nothing whatsoever to do with the birth of Christ it’s all Pagan! God said ..do not follow mans traditions.im done with this site,makes me wonder what other false things you have told those who follow this site.Seek your wisdom from God not man…because my pastor said so will not be an excuse when He judges you,do your research!

    • Guess you are not such a good JW then. Please note the following taken directly from the JW.org website:

      “Archangel. God’s Word refers to Michael “the archangel.” (Jude 9) This term means “chief angel.” Notice that Michael is called the archangel. This suggests that there is only one such angel. In fact, the term “archangel” occurs in the Bible only in the singular, never in the plural. Moreover, Jesus is linked with the office of archangel. Regarding the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 4:16 states: “The Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s voice.” Thus the voice of Jesus is described as being that of an archangel. This scripture therefore suggests that Jesus himself is the archangel Michael.” http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/bible-teach/who-is-michael-the-archangel-jesus/

      The same JW teaching then states this:

      “The Bible states that “Michael and his angels battled with the dragon . . . and its angels.” (Revelation 12:7) Thus, Michael is the Leader of an army of faithful angels. Revelation also describes Jesus as the Leader of an army of faithful angels. (Revelation 19:14-16) And the apostle Paul specifically mentions “the Lord Jesus” and “his powerful angels.” (2 Thessalonians 1:7) So the Bible speaks of both Michael and “his angels” and Jesus and “his angels.” (Matthew 13:41; 16:27; 24:31; 1 Peter 3:22) Since God’s Word nowhere indicates that there are two armies of faithful angels in heaven—one headed by Michael and one headed by Jesus— it is logical to conclude that Michael is none other than Jesus Christ in his heavenly role.”

    • Lorraine Sabbath believer

      Hi Kelly
      I have been told by JWs that Micheal is Jesus also. I went the the kingdom hall from age 10 to 15 and then had a bible study recently and I dont recall this teaching as a child but they did teach it in my bible study. I do think generally there are a lot of good people within the organisation and they work very hard spreading the word but infortunately they spread a different word. They say that Matthew 24.14. (Witness to all nations) refers to them as JWs, talk about clutching at straws. Our salvation comes from Yahusha/Jesus, not the organisation and they state that it will only be JWs that will be saved, they also wont baptise you unless you thoroughly agree with all their doctrines, who are they to decide who gets saved? Thats our Heavely Fathers role to judge each of us, not theirs. They also teach that its only through their guidance that we can understand the bible, when its the Holy Spirit that helps us to understand it. That to me is a massive lie. I would love to think this thread wakes a few of them up but I doubt any will read it.
      Its good that you got out and can think for yourself, I know some who have been in the org for 50-60 years and I have asked one who I really care about why she wont test the spirits and look elsewhere so she can be sure she knows the truth and she replied ‘where else would I go’ and thats what it is with some of them they scared to leave because they have too much to lose. I was devastated when I found out it wasn’t the truth but thanks to my Heavely Father I did.
      Blessings Lorraine

      #@Kelly.you is the one who don’t have the facts of the so-called new light teachings of “Jw-Dom” ( Fact)
      On page 218,219 of the Jw teach book.They make the claim that Jesus is infact Michael the Archangel.matter of fact, while I was still a very active Jw.I was teaching those I studied with this jw doctrine.If you want to know if anything said against jws is fact or fiction, all you got to do is to research their own literature and all the frogs comes out.

    • Skywatcher

      Kelly, I tried to witness to a J.W. friend and the elder he brought with him, and one of the first things they said was that Jesus was temporarily the Archangel Michael. Once He went back to Heaven, He became Jesus again! Totally unbelievable. They have earned their title, “Truth Twisters”.

      The fact that we choose to celebrate Christ’s birth, even though it is on the wrong date, and all the trappings are extremely occultic, doesn’t make your stance any more the correct one! My property is decorated with almost 14 “Christmas trees”, and a J.W. lives right next door! He tells me he really enjoys seeing all the “pretty lights”. To me, that’s all they are, as I do NOT attach any spiritual significance to them, the tree, the garland, the wreathes, mistletoe, etc., although they originated with the occult.

      This “Christmas experience” is equivalent to eating meat offered to idols. If I don’t worship the idols, I can eat the meat. If I don’t attach spiritual significance to an innocent act of enjoying pretty colored lights reflecting on the snow and ice, I’m not committing any abomination.

      To pledge allegiance to an organization instead of to Almighty God is the same as serving an idol! My question to you is this, why do you not now attend a Kingdom Hall?

      May I lovingly encourage you to be careful about judging others when you no longer support the organization yourself? Isn’t that a tad bit hypocritical?

    Read a couple of your articles on the JWs and Mormans. Can’t believe what I read wouldn’t have even noticed some of the Masonic and devilish signs. I am so glad I as brought up Pentecostal. Great website.

    Yes, it’s true JW’s do claim that Micheal is Jesus Christ. They have been saying so for many years. I have said it to because I use to be one. So I don’t know what JW you are referring to.

  • Caltanzee

    The reason I walked away after fifty odd years is because it’s completely impossible to sit down and reason on scriptural points of doubts in watchtower publications with the elders or anyone in the higher echelons of the organization.They expect you to be in full compliance with their authority.Dummy yourself down into blind obesiance if you want to survive ARMAGEDDON.I JUST GOT TIRED OF LIVING IN FEAR OF THESE PIOUS MEN RATHER THAN LOOKING TO CHRIST WHO IS THE TRUE LEADER AND SAVIOR.ALL JWS NEEDS TO LIBERATE THEMSELVES FROM LIVING IN FEAR AND TO HAVE THE GLORIOUS FREEDOM OF THE SONS OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST JESUS.

  • Marian

    The false prophecies of the JWs have contributed to the rejection of many end times truths, including the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine… hmmm, isn’t the Evil One clever?! How many times are we warned in the Bible to not be deceived?!

  • Excellent article. I deal with them on the street all the time…mostly in minority communities sadly. They won’t take my tracts because they aren’t allowed to take material from others. I tell them that Paul says to test everything…prove everything, but they just smile. Russell’s grave site is also obviously masonic (as is Ellen White’s husband’s) and it was taught by the JW’s for years that blacks were the sons of Cain…yet now many Haitian and inner city folks have bought their easily disprovable lie. Even their own horrific bible version accidentally left in a few versions stating that Jesus is God, and the historical record is clear that the Romans didn’t execute any one on a torture stake. Not ONE ancient Greek NT manuscript says that Jesus was killed on a stake…except for the fake one they made. They also say Jesus is the son of God, yet their Bible version(like all new versions) deletes Acts 8:37, which points out that he is. Why? If their Bible is so great why would they have deleted out something they believe in? Because they didn’t actually translate a Bible from Greek. They just edited an english Alexandrian Bible(with that verse already missing) and then rewrote it in Greek and English.

    Satan’s game with the JW’s is brilliant…make Jehovah really really big and great, which he is, but the minimize his son Jesus Christ, who bore our sins on a CROSS. He too is God, as the Jehovah the Father actually says in Hebrews 1:8!!

    Jesus Christ, as he is in the KJV Bible, is the only way to God, and without the son, you do not have the Father:

    Brother Geoffrey and All, almost 30 years ago (when I was much younger), I did a “horrible” thing! Yes, I did! If confession is really good for the soul, I’m going to be healthy until Jesus comes! Being one to come in through the “rooftop” and not using the conventional “door”, I left a J.W. one Sat. morning with plenty to think about.

    I asked a man in his 30’s who came knocking on my door to show me in his “scriptures” where it says 144,000 would be allowed into the Paradise kingdom. He gladly turned to Rev. 7, thinking this was his foot in the door. I asked him to read the passage, which he did with great glee and satisfaction. When he was done, I asked him, “Are you a virgin?

    He mournfully replied, “No, I’m married.”

    BAM! I dropped the bombshell that left him shell shocked for life! I kid you not! Are you ready for this?!

    “Are you circumcised?” I asked.

    You should’ve seen the look on that poor man’s face!!! Obviously in GREAT SHOCK, he said, “Pardon?!” (italicized)

    I repeated, “Are you circumcised?”

    Before he could answer, I quickly put my hand up in the stop position, and said, “You don’t have to answer that! However, if you’re not, you’re NOT one of the 144,000! They were all Jewish men! You just read 12,000 from each one of the 12 tribes of Israel, and we know all Jews are cut!”

    He then started to attempt to spiritualize Israel. My hand went up again. I said, “Why would you want to spiritualize a nation that is still in existence today? How does that align with what the Holy Bible says and where we’re headed?

    I then went on to say, “Hmmm…144,000 people aren’t that many people, considering the population of the world since time immemorial. How do you know that quota wasn’t filled 2,000 years ago? What hope do you have?”

    He didn’t know what to answer! He just mechanically moved on to his brainwashed script. I thanked him for his time, and shut the door.

    The poor man! Today, he is my immediate next door neighbor, a good one, BUT he will NOT talk about spiritual matters, no matter how hard I try to open the conversation! He’s now with his third wife; the first two died of cancer. If I were him, I’d take that as some kind of divine message; he still cannot see the light!

    So, there’s another tool for your spiritual toolbox! Just ask if they have been circumcised or not! 😉 It totally throws them right off their game! I just love that shock element! It takes them right off their script from the first step and leaves them standing there like naked stammering fools! Of course, we know they are, for who would serve an organization and NOT God Almighty?

    Here’s another tidbit I learned from him! I went over one evening to visit(which I rarely do), and to hopefully enter into a chance to witness to the WITNESS. It was his His turn to shock me…TWICE! After I got seated, he asked me if I would like to have a drink with him. It was liquor! I said, “I didn’t think you folks drank alcohol.” (First shock)

    He said, “Well, we’re not supposed to. When I get caught, I have to go door-to-door canvassing”! (Second shock!)

    I said, “What?!” (bold and italicized!)

    His reply was, “That’s my punishment for drinking alcohol.”

    I found that to be quite interesting! I got my info right from the horse’s mouth and not from the other end! Or was it? 🙂

    Something that amazes me is that when you present to them that the Holy Bible (KJV) is the only reliable and ancient historical document and that their’s is relatively a “newbie” on the block…they don’t get it! When I tell them that the O.T. is thousands of years old and the N.T. is almost 2,000 years old, and trusted for many centuries, it “goes over their heads” and doesn’t “gel” or cause them to suspect their own “scriptures”.

      To see if you have the blessing of God, just try to reach 50% of this globe with “One faith” “One hope” and “one baptism” and see that it takes only the blessings of Jehovah, the support of Jesus Christ and the holy spirit to tarry strong in this last days and raise “a people” for His name Jehovah.
      If only your “one message” can outlive you when you die and be able to spread round the world and prepare them; for the end must surely come.
      There can never be two groups of people that can bear the name of Jehovah and uphold His sovereignty and stand against satanic taunts and propaganda. Only one group.
      Just only one group.

  • ukata ukata

    John 17:3 in your Bible says: “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.”
    God Almighty is one, just like Moses declared to the Israelite and it is clear that He sent His Son Jesus Christ. So the Bible says. And from that John 1-2 Jesus revealed that it is only His father God Almighty glorified him and gave him authority. There is a giver and a receiver here.
    Even many other religious sects that are not Christians know that Almighty is not three but One.
    Those who became confused when Jesus said “I and my father are One.” should learn from the saying in the Bible that said “When a woman and man get married, they become one flesh.”
    This is in terms of agreement and not that they become co-joined like twins and become one.
    Jesus never made himself equal with his father who sent him rather theologians and co. Even when he was being baptized a voice that came down from heaven which is the voice of the Almighty said
    “This is my beloved (son) in whom (I) am well pleased..”
    It never read, “This is (God) the (son) with whom we are (one).” God truly knows the identity of His son and can never make a mistake.

    If you have a Bible make use of it and Read:

    Revelation 3:14; Colosians 1:15-17
    Galatians 4:4; Hebrews 2:9
    Matthew 3: 16, 17

        sOMEONE who has the truth does not single out an organization that is doing so well with a global appeal in which over 8 million people of all colors and all races belong and start spreading untold lies about them without any evidence. The blessing of the works of Jehovah’s Witnesses is seen by the fact that they are in more than 239 countries round the whole globe in every continent of the world and every corner of this world. Despite the lies about them they still flourish and millions still get baptized every year.

        Tell me any other “Christian” organization that is organized like them in the world today? Just mention one with an organized membership of a global appeal? Tell me any other organization that are able to spread “One message” round the globe like them?

  • Edwitness

    Marilyn,
    Christians are instructed to judge in 1stCor. 2:15. This is not condemnation. It is discernment. When we become familiar with the Bible we can see a cult with a false gospel coming a mile away.
    The JWs fit the description of a cult with false doctrine exactly. Here are some examples.

    The 1984 edition of the NWT says in Hebrews 1, verse 6…”And let all God’s angels do obeisance to him”. (meaning Jesus Christ)

    The 1970 edition of the NWT says in Hebrews 1, verse 6….”And let all God’s angels worship him”.
    Why the change? Because they missed it the first time. They couldn’t allow their ‘translation’ to teach that Jesus receives worship because worship is reserved for God alone.

    Genesis 1:1-2
NWT: In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of [the] watery deep; and GOD’S ACTIVE FORCE was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters.

    NASB: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the SPIRIT OF GOD was moving over the surface of the waters.
    
KJV: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the SPIRIT OF GOD moved upon the face of the waters.

    The Jehovah’s Witnesses reject the doctrine of the Trinity. They believe in a non-triune God named Jehovah, they believe Jesus is “a god” subordinate to Jehovah, and they reject the notion that the Holy Spirit is a person of the Trinity. They believe that the Holy Spirit is an extension of Jehovah – an “active force” He sends out. The Hebrew words here are ruwach elohim, which are accurately translated as “Spirit of God.” Ruwach can be translated as “wind” also, but when joined in context with God, it is a reference to the Spirit of God (as Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon states, “Spirit of God, the third person of the triune God, the Holy Spirit, coequal, coeternal with the Father and the Son”). This is the first example of the NWT forcing its doctrinal bias into the text of Scripture.


    John 1:1
NWT: In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS A GOD.

    NASB: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS GOD.

    KJV: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS GOD.

    Here, every legitimate translation of the Bible reads the same – the Word (logos) was God (theos). The NWT stands alone in its contention that the Word was a god. This is to reinforce the JW doctrine that Jesus is not Jehovah, but is simply a subordinate god. The last Greek phrase in its entirety is theos en ho logos, where ho is a definite article (the). The Watchtower says that when theos is preceded by the definite article ho, it implies identity or personality. Since the first use of theos in this verse is preceded by ho, it refers to God. The second use of theos is not preceded by ho, making it an indefinite description or quality. This is simply wrong thinking. It’s an important point to make that theos without the definite article ho is used elsewhere in the New Testament in reference to Jehovah God, and is translated appropriately in the NWT (such as in Luke 20:38). They are inconsistent with this argument, positing the “indefinite quality” assertion only in reference to Jesus.


    There is so much more I could say. But, these prove the JW religion has lied on purpose to it’s deceived followers. The issue that separates true Christianity from the cults is most importantly, WHO IS JESUS? Cults always fail this test.
    Some say He is just a man.
    Some say He is a god among many other gods.
    Some even say He is God, but His mother is also to be worshipped.
    But, only true Christianity worships Jesus alone as God, the savior of mankind and our only mediator. John3:16,17 & 1stTim.2:5 & Heb.8:6; 9:15; 12:24. The only name given to men by which we are saved. Acts4:12.
    May you and TWR and other cultists find the true Jesus and the eternal life for which He died to provide you.

      Thank you, once again, Edwitness, for such an excellently well thought out and educated reply! I trust this will yield the fruit that we’re hoping for! Blessings!

  • If Jesus Christ was (a) god,then that would automatically cancel out the law that the Most High Father gave to Moses when He said”to not have or put before me any other gods”. And then He would turn around and say,”no one can get to the Father except to go through the Christ”. And as far as it goes for the 144,000 it continued to read “they are the ones who did not give themselves to women (I’m sure he didn’t mean women giving them selves to women) and that they didn’t lie”.

  • no way the JW’s are a cult? Who woulda thunk it…
