<quoted text>
If you can picture the spiritual direction of Jesus to his subjects, is in harmony with his direction to the first century Christians, to go and preach and teach God's word or truth to the most distant parts of this earth, is being fulfilled today.
The printed page in over 800 languages to people in over 240 lands, God's warning message is available to all mankind today. Jehovah God has never forced his people to love and serve Him, and Jesus doesn't either, it has always been the individual who loves Jehovah God, that will listen and obey Jehovah's reigning King and his loyal subjects, named Jehovah's witnesses.
There is no other way to survive the coming end of this world ruled by Satan, so I suggest you adjust your attitude and start your Bible study with the witnesses, while you have the time left.
Ephesians 5:15
This is truly strange, because my bible says that you cant be saved unless you give your life over to Jesus and believe in him.

We are still waiting for your biblical proof of your words above.

The congregation of God's people are the same as they were in the first century, except today we are world wide and flourishing as Jehovah's witnesses.
Acts 20:28

No other people can make the claim that God is backing their religion, because no other religion recognizes Jehovah God as Universal Sovereign, they believe Jesus is a trinity god and teach Jesus is the only one to worship and obey, Jesus taught to worship Jehovah God the immortal spirit, not a man.

John 4:24

Do not be misled, Satan is misleading this entire earth away from Jehovah God and his named witnesses.

How do you think Jesus would gather his subjects of his Heavenly Kingdom Government? Of course it is by personal invitation to attend a spiritual feast of spiritual food served by his loyal servants.
Matthew 4:4
Have you ever read a scripture that relates to an invitation to become apart of Gods immediate family or can you think of one?

Equating something so special with a mere invitation to an assemble is nothing more than Twisting the scriptures and layering it with wicked reasoning.

Did Gods son go around inviting onlookers to hear him speak? No. He taught in their synagogues and in open public and the crowds followed him he didn't have to go out and hustle them. Rather he was the one peoples clamored for even inviting him in to their homes.

Revelation 12:9
God didn't name Jehovah's Witnesses, Rutherford did. You need to read up on the history of JWs they have only been around 130 or so years. Remember these scriptures....
Mat 24:4-5 KJV 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Take careful notice of this scripture above, and then read this from the WAtchtower....

The anointed and their other sheep companions recognize that by following the led of their modern day Governing Body, they are in fact following their leader Christ.

Mat 24:10-11 KJV 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Mat 24:24 KJV For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

And again remember what they wrote in the Watchtower.

Remember also what the bible says is your salvation, it has noting to do with obey these 8 men, nor the religion of JW's, it has every thing to do with JESUS CHRIST. You yourself are denying Jesus and putting the religion first.

There are 8 million Jehovah's witnesses and over 19 million people who attend meetings of Jehovah's witnesses, they are not witnesses yet.

Since the world wide congregation of Jehovah's people is the only way to have pure worship today, and their Bible truth that is being preached the only truth Jesus wants preached today, it is vital that you adjust your thinking to God's word at Revelation 22:16,17

Because Jehovah's witnesses are the only people inviting people who want to survive the end of this world, and want to live in God's new world of righteousness.

Jesus isn't forcing anyone to listen to his invitation.

If numbers make it a true religion then here are our numbers...

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is a United States-based Christian denomination. It is the world's largest Baptist denomination and the largest Protestant body in the United States, with nearly 16 million members as of 2012.[3] This also makes it the second largest Christian body in the United States, after the Catholic Church.

I guess I win!:)

Want to see how we spread the word of the Lord?

http://www.namb.net/disaster-relief-donations...

http://www.namb.net/ministries/

http://southasianpeoples.imb.org/2011/11/than...

Google Southern Baptist food banks and see all the ones located all over the United States. Do it on Jehovahs Witness food banks and see how many hits you get. Ministry is about more than preaching, it is about helping those who need help.

Luke 12:33. "Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves purses which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near, nor moth destroys."

Luke 3:11. And [John the Baptist] would answer and say to them, "Let the man with two tunics share with him who has none, and let him who has food do likewise."

Mt. 5:42. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.

You see, you are being lied to about how other religions do nothing. They do much more than the JWs ever thought of doing.

You are right, Jesus does not force us to come to him, or listen to his voice, but it is HIS VOICE we must listen to, not that of men who call themselves Jesus. The bible warns you of men who will come as false prophets declaring that they are Christ...

Matt 7:15
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
KJV

Mark 13:22
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

2 Peter 2:1
there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord

1 John 4:1
try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

It would do you good to read the bible, read how Jesus is the ONLY way to salvation, it is by his Grace that we are saved, Nothing MORE, NOTHING LESS.

“…also, many will be stumbled and will betray one another and will hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and mislead many.” Mathew 24:11

The teachings the Watchtower leadership have made up have proved to be a persistant failure not even knowing what generation their teachings of “the end” apply to or rather what generation it dosen’t apply to. Living with such uncertainty and doubt certainly will not enable the “many” to live in truth and die in faith.

The real prophets of the true God new in no uncertainty they would not see the fulfillment of the prophecys regarding the Christ and Yeshua’s teaching regarding the wicked “generation” never came to failure as the Watchtower teachings have.

The failure of the watchtower teaching certainly have contibuted to your false prophet status.

“Concerning this very salvation a diligent inquiry and a careful search were made by the prophets who prophesied about the undeserved kindness meant for YOU...It was revealed to them that, not to themselves, but to YOU, they were ministering the things that have now been announced to YOU through those who have declared the good news to YOU with holy spirit sent forth from heaven…” new world translation of the holy scripture

A good person by whose standards? Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever used Gods name in vain? Have you ever looked at the opposite sex with lust in your heart? I am sure that you answered yes to all 3 questions 99% of the world will. So that makes you a lying, blaspheming adulterer. Now again, a good person by whose standards?

Jesus said no one is good, we are all sinners and deserving death. Stop being self righteous, no one is acceptable to God unless you repent of your sins, and are forgiven on the basis of the blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God.

Baptists do not believe that, they believe no one is saved unless you accept Jesus as the Trinity god. And no one saved is going to burn in hell fire forever.
Both those doctrines are no where in the Bible.

No one is saved unless you are under the tent of God's protection when the Great tribulation starts, and there are no Baptists in Jehovah God's visible earthly organization of his named witnesses, as Jesus was.

John 17:3
Well I can prove you a liar, I am saved and I do not believe in the trinity, and I am a Southern Baptist. And yes, the Pastor knows and so does the members of the church, but they know that I am still learning. There are many things that I do not agree with on the teachings of Southern Baptist, but I am still part of JESUS CONGREGATION. The religion of Southern Baptist has nothing to do with my salvation at all. Sad you believe that being a JW will save you, because that is Not BIBLICAL AT ALL. That is a man made teaching. Will you ever open your eyes and understand that you cannot even show me that in the bible? IF you cant, then it has to be a man made belief.
Where is the doctrine of 8 men teaching in the place of Jesus? Where is the believe that you MUST be part of a religion or organization of support earthly men to be saved? These are not in the bible at all.
No one is saved unless he comes to Jesus, unless he truly believes in JESUS.
You are right, there are no Baptist in the earthly organization called Jehovah's Witnesses, All Bible believing, Jesus loving, Baptist are under the protection of Jesus Blood.

Thank you! Of course he would invite those he wants to join him in heaven.(Revelation 7:14; 14:1-4) In the Bible the writer used the word "chosen." "Many are called, few chosen." There are "few", a "little flock" who will enter the kingdom of heaven as spirit persons, having been "changed" at death in order to be able to do so.

WHY SO FEW PERSONS GO TO HEAVEN?
Because God did not create man to live in heaven, but to stay on earth. Also, because God's Kingdom in heaven is orderly, and this is the number it requires according to God's will, and he has given us that number.

But MANY more than these will inhabit this earth FOREVER, living under righteous conditions, with satisfying work to do, and being able to explore our talents and abilities to the full with fully restored physical attributes, just as God created Adam and Eve.

ONLY THEN, at the end of Christ's thousand-year reign, when Christ "hands over the Kingdom" to HIS GOD and Father will God's personal name, Jehovah, and all he stands for be VINDICATED and cleansed of all the charges Satan and his followers have made.

So, if you know all the answers, and all religions are okay with God, then tell me, please, if you do know...HOW MANY RELIGIONS DID JESUS TEACH?
He taught ONE--HIS Father's. John the Baptizer went out ahead of Jesus, showing that baptism does indeed save when accompanied by knowledge of the truth about God and Christ AND applying it in one's life.

When God called, none of the other churches said, "Here I am, send me." They all abdicated the truth for tradition and church doctrine, which are the real teachings of unChristian men.

I have never said that you have to be of any religion to be saved, but you do have to truly believe in Jesus to be saved. Being a JW, or a Southern Baptist, or a Methodist or any other religion in this world is NOT going to save you. Can you show me scripture where he said he had ONE true religion here on earth? Now remember, religion is man made, Faith comes from belief in the Lord. It is that faith, and belief that saves us, not a religion.

HalleluJAH!:)
Are you familiar with the transfiguration where yeshua (jesus) was conversing with Mose and Elijah 100’s of years after their death which indicates there might be unnumbered others who attained to a resurrection inaddition to the 144.000.

When God created man the whole human race was an after thought. When he changed his mind and decided to create Eve because “it wasn’t good for man to be along” it still wasn’t until after he named her that he purposed for other humans to live on the earth.

Even if they didn’t fail and fall prey to Satan, there is nothing to suggest their duration of life would have been endless as the watchtower teaches. Flesh just as other lower forms of life as well as plant life were never intended to live without end.

The Hebrew word “owlam” which you have been taught to mean forever, endless or to time indefinite also means “for a long time” or “for as long as it last” as can be seen in the below scriptures.

“After that [yhwh]… said:“My spirit shall not act toward man[owlam] indefinitely in that he is also flesh. Accordingly his days shall amount to a hundred and twenty years” Genesis 6:3

“…I do take from the sons of Israel from their communion sacrifices, and I shall give them to Aaron the priest and his sons, as a regulation to time indefinite[owlam], from the sons of Israel... It is a statute to time indefinite[owlam] for their generations.” Leviticus 7:34, 36

Just as “Jesus” isn’t the name of King Yeshua so,“Jehovah” isn’t the name of God. Think of it like this, the Hebrews believed the earth was a flat sphere with a hard shell around it kind’a like a snow globe and Isaiah said it was a circle but today because of GPS and SAT Tech imagery its been proven not to be flat with no hard shell around it and whether the Universe is flat with a hard shell around it is another matter. Today teaching the earth is flat would be a statement of ignorance just as claiming Yeshua’s name is Jesus and God’s Name is Jehovah.

John 17:3
You are sadly misinformed.

I was saved by Jesus in December 2004.

I did not believe that the Trinity was a biblical concept when I was saved.

I was baptised in a Baptist church in February 2005 and no one asked me if I believed in the Trinity.

The only question that I was asked was this:

"Have you repented of your sins and received Jesus Christ as you Lord and Savior."

**********

BTW JW PR rep,

People do not need to associate themselves with the Watchtower Society or the Jehovah's Witnesses to be saved.

One day you will find out that the only requirement for people to be saved is Jesus...

Then Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit and said to them,“Rulers of the people and elders:

If we are being examined today about a good deed done to a disabled man — by what means he was healed — let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel,

that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene —
whom you crucified and whom God raised from the dead —
by Him this man is standing here before you healthy.

This [Jesus] is
The stone despised by you builders,
who has become the cornerstone.

There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.”
Acts 4:8-12

I hope you figure it out before you die.

Speaking of dying...

You are going to die one day just like every one else who has ever lived.

In the event that the great tribulation comes in your lifetime you will receive the mark of the beast on your forehead or you will become a martyr.

If you receive the receive the mark of the beast on your forehead you will die at armageddon so either way you will die.

Throw away the Watchtower magazines and read a real bible.
