Two witnesses

Two covenants.

The people Jehovah made a Law covenant with still exist as a people and as their sufferings are documented from the beginning of what they would go through for breaking his covenant..its just history of them being scattered through the nations, as God said they would

Then further recorded in the last day he would gather them back from the four corners where he scattered them..

Also the fact he has recorded Jerusalem as a time clock.

" Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations until the time of the end of the Gentiles.

The other witnesses are Jehovah's Christian witnesses, who are to taste that the Lord is kind for themselves , and have Gods Law within their hearts and minds , being an example of Christian benefits of living...a body of people who are to be witnesses of the glory of God, and for two thousand years people from the nations have been called to share with the Apostles and original Jews to be part of the BODY of CHRIST..The TEMPLE to Jehovah that Jesus has been building...

I think there are many reasons, one for me would be, If there were a Creator God, I think He would give us some sort of guide/communication so we would know how we got here and for what reason. I think the Bible is the most credible of any book and with good support historically and archeologically.

We need to always remember, what the Bible "actually" says, and what some interpret it to say, may not be the same.

i'm dying laughing.... for two thousand years the body of christ has been calling themselves "CHRISTIANS", not jehovah's witnesses.

The Watchtower did a real number on your mind and heart.

Read this and tell the board what the disciples were called:

For a whole year they met with the church and taught large numbers, and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.

I doubt that she has left the JW cult, at least not mentally.

To answer the threads question:

Ephesians 1:4-5
King James Version (KJV)

4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

hey kevin, god chose everyone who responded to the word of god.

the plan was laid long ago, before the founding of the world.... before lucifer became of age and then ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and bad and then chose total selfishness as his permanent moral guide twoard everlasting life

agree Kevin..its just an advantage to know which God we have been predestined to the adoption of children, to

Jehovah God of Israel.

You do get yourself tied up in knots Red

Jehovah is the God of Israel

Has always been the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob...You might serve another God , but I am with the God of Israel..and praise Jah, Jesus is the one that has reconciled me to him.

Just as a matter of interest..God promised a new covenant to Israel..not Iran

And Christians are grafted in to the state of Israel of God

The new covenant is where God promises "to become our God and we his people"

Iran has not entered the new covenant , mediated by Jesus Christ .. perhaps individuals over there have ..but its the new covenant promise of where Jehovah becomes our God and we his people..

They have the opportunity to become Jehovah Gods people if they respond to the good-news, but I doubt it if they keep executing Christians as infidels that they will ever get there.

Jehovah is the Most high over all the earth..and his will, will be done, at the moment there is a controversy God has with the nations

Jeremiah 25 [31] A noise will come clear to the farthest part of the earth for there is a CONTROVERSY that Jehovah has with the nations ........"

Out of all the nations on earth he has chosen only one nation as his exclusive property ..Israel.

Iran as a nation, hates Israel..does not recognize Jehovah nor has Iran as a nation entered into a reconciliation with Jehovah God through the blood of Christ,,,

So as a nation, it is under the influence of the "god' of this world..

Joel declares; "For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land."

The LAND of Israel has always belonged to Jehovah..something the nations have never recognized.

Oops, why I believe? Because it is Inspired by the Heavenly GOD Jehovah. Has survived down to now, despite the efforts of many to hide, or destory it.

By means of Faith. Being able to "see" beyond what is visible to the naked eye, by virtue of what "is seen" by the human eye.
