Genesis 17:1 NWT
When Abram got to be ninety-nine years old, then Jehovah appeared to Abram and said to him:“I am God Almighty."

Genesis 35:9-11 NWT
God now appeared to Jacob once again during his coming from Paddanaram and blessed him. And God went on to say to him:“Your name is Jacob. No longer is your name to be called Jacob, but Israel will your name become.” And he began to call his name Israel. And God said further to him:“I am God Almighty."

Exodus 6:2,3 NWT
“I am Jehovah. And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as God Almighty."

Who was it that appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and said "I am God Almighty"

Can it be that there is not one Jehovah's Witness willing to come forward and tell us who it was that appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and said "I am God Almighty"?

You have had all weekend to ask an elder at Kingdom Hall.

What's the problem?

Another weekend gone.

Another chance to ask this question of an elder at Kingdom Hall.

So let's try it again.

Who it was that appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and said "I am God Almighty"?

Can a Jehovah's Witness answer this please?

What's the problem?

Jehovah Gods REPRESENTATIVE came forward and spoke Jehovah's WORD to Abraham

Thats why Jesus is called THE WORD.

He is THE WORD OF JEHOVAH.

Are you saying Jesus appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and said "I am God Almighty"?

Or are you saying the Word appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and said "I am God Almighty"?

Or are you saying the Word who became Jesus appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and said "I am God Almighty"?

John 1:1,14
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us

"The Word" appears to be God Almighty incognito, at least if you are a JW.

What does "THE WORD" represent to you?

Evenif it is "THE WORD" of God, that means God spoke, right?

Do you have a "representative" speak for you when you want to say something, or do you say it yourself? Especially if it's something very important?

Do you think God was just too busy to say it himself, or what?

Where is little lamb?

Did the big bad wolf come along and snatch the truth of who God is out of her heart?

You won't see a lot of cult defenders here.

The real truth scares the devil out of them.

It was an agent of YHWH, more than likely an angel acting as YHWH's Shaliah.

When an agent on behalf of YHWH speaks it's as if YHWH is speaking Himself. In these cases it would have been YHWH's agent speaking. The Jewish law of Shaliah is in play and so it is recorded as 'Jehovah appeared to...'

Can you give us some Scriptures to back up your theory little lamb?

Or is this just unscriptural conjecture on your part?
