Isaiah 11:1, 10 describe the messiah as BOTH the branch out of Jesse (the Father of David) and the root of Jesse-- see also Rev 22:16 According to the flesh the messiah was a decendant (branch) of Jesse & David, but according to his Spirit. He was their CREATOR & source of life (root). Jesus used this concept to confound the pharisees when he quoted psalm 110:1 and asked, in Matthew 22:41-46 41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together Jesus asked them: 42 “What do YOU think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” They said to him: “David’s.” 43 He said to them: “How, then, is it that David by inspiration calls him ‘Lord,’ saying, 44 ‘Jehovah said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies beneath your feet”’? 45 If, therefore, David calls him ‘Lord,’ how is he his son?” 46 And nobody was able to say a word in reply to him, nor did anyone dare from that day on to question him any further. Isaiah 35:4-6 Shows the Messiah (God with us); is Jehovah- 4 Say to those who are anxious at heart:“Be strong. Do not be afraid. Look! YOUR own God will come with vengeance itself, God even with a repayment. He himself will come and save YOU people.” 5 At that time the eyes of the blind ones will be opened, and the very ears of the deaf ones will be unstopped. 6 At that time the lame one will climb up just as a stag does, and the tongue of the speechless one will cry out in gladness. For in the wilderness waters will have burst out, and torrents in the desert plain And Jesus uses this verse to describe HIMSELF in Luke 7:22 & of course his ministry did produce all of those things.  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #1625)

Colossians 1:19 19 because [God] saw good for all fullness to dwell in him Colossians 2:9 9 because it is in him that**all the fullness**+ of the divine(+) quality+ ***dwells bodily** ******read the + marks on www.jw.org & read the scripture-notes attached- they rightly say (GODHEAD) the King James reads: 9 For **in him**dwelleth**all the fulness**of the**Godhead bodily.

Matt 23:9 And call no man your**father upon the earth**for*ONE*is your Father, which is in heaven. Now- I know its hard to grasp- especially if your mind has been told by the WTO that Jesus is the 1st created angel that raised his hand in heaven to take on the job of being a ransom- First-God is a SPIRIT(gen 1:2, john 4:24 ect) since God is a spirit he is Invisible unless "HE CHOOSES" to manifest himself in a visible form to humans- as God told Moses(ex 33:20)"thou canst not see my face for there shall be NO MAN see me & live" also read John 1:18, 1 john 4:12 Not only has NO MAN ever seen God but NO MAN CAN SEE GOD (1 TIM 1:17 & 6:16, COL 1:15, HEB 11:27) HOWEVER humans can & have seen God when he appears in various forms-but no one can directly see the invisible SPIRIT of God One way God revealed himself in the OT & delt with humans on their level was through the use of "Theophanies "(google that) A Theophany is a VISIBLE manifestation of God, & usually is "temporary " in nature As mentioned above God is invisible to humans-Even though no human can see the Spirit of God- they CAN see a representation of God. Here are some ways God chose to manifest himself VISIBLY in the OT: God appeared to Abraham in a vision, as smoking furnace, a burning lamp, & as a MAN(gen 15:1, 17, 18:1-33) in the last instance God & 2 angels appeared in the form of 3 men (18:2) & ate food provided by Abraham The 2 angels left(to warn Lot in Sodom & Gomorrah)while God remained to talk to Abraham(gen 18:22; 19:1) God appeared to Jacob in a dream & as a Man(gen 28:12-16; 32:24-32)on the latter occasion Jacob wrestled with the "Man" & proclaimed,"I HAVE SEEN GOD FACE TO FACE"-the bible also describes this as "The Angel"(hosea 12:4) God appeared to Moses(but not his face) in Ex 24:12-18, 33:9-11, 18:23- & to ALL of Israel in (ex 19:11-19,dut 5:4-5,22-27 & lev 9:23-24, 10:1-2) Job saw God in a whirlwind(job 38:1 & 42:5) there are MANY OT PHYSICAL MANIFESTATIONS OF GOD: GEN 12:7, 17:1 26:2 24, 35:9-15; 1 SAM 3:21; EX 34:5; 24:9-11; NUM 12:4-9; 23:3-10, 16-24; EZ 1:26-28, 8:1-4; DAN 7:2,9; AMOS 9:1 JOSHUA 5:13-15 THE MAN(who said he was "captain of the Host of Jehovah) didnt rebuke Joshua for worshiping him as the "angel" did in rev 19:9-10 & 22:10 NUMEROUS SIGHTINGS OF "THE ANGEL OF JEHOVAH"(the WTO agree this is Jesus most likely)are seem to be Theophanies (gen 16:7-13, ex 3 acts 7:30-38 Ex 13:21 says that Jehovah went before Israel in a pillar of cloud & then in ex 14:19 it says that "the angel of Jehovah" was that pillar of cloud In the NT-Jesus is Gods ONLY THEOPHANY-HIS MANIFESTATION IN THE FLESH as MANY SCRIPTURES LIKE 1 tim 3:15-16; COL 1:9,2:9 MAT 1:22-23, Isaiah 7:14, 9:6 & 40:3, JOHN 20:28, ACTS 20:28; TIT 2:13; 2 PET 1:1- PROCLAIM.  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #1623)

the end times

I feel the time IS short- I think humanity as a whole can feel that Change is on the horizon- is it "the end" or just a major change in how the world operates- time will tell. But what the bible says in Matt 24 does seem to be STARTING- like birth pains- I say even if its 10yrs 100yrs or 1000yrs off- its a GREAT time to fall in Love with Jesus & press in to his Love & Salvation Jehovah God has given us- As the bible says: He comes Like a thief in the night-(VISIBLY-NOT INVISIBLY) And this is just the start of the birth pains- its going to get much more turbulent- SO cling to the comforter Jehovah God gave us: John 14:16(amplified) And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever— John 14:26 But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you. John 16:7 However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you]; but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you]. Ask God for the comforter- his word promises to those who ask for "the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name" In Jesus Name- God Bless you Brother :)  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #12)

Snorkler- your still missing a part of the biblical puzzle- & that is YES He is THE MEDIATOR OF ALL- you got that- but also (& here is where the WTO ADDS to there doctrine...NOT FROM THE SCRIPTURES BUT JUST FROM THE MINDS OF MEN) ALL WHO ACCEPT THE GIFT OF SALVATION THROUGH CHRIST- ARE THEN GRAFTED IN & ALSO PART OF THE NEW COVENANT. THERE IS NO 3RD COVENANT, There is the old & the new- & you need to "be in Christ" "in the new covenant" for forgiveness of sins,salvation & to enter into eternal life-THE BIBLE PLAINLY STATES THIS You know I just had this talk with a JW Ive studied with & a Elder she brought to "help" with our study- & we discussed many scriptures pertaining this subject of who is in the new covenant- the elder finally said its just a timing thing- that if you missed the 1935 "cut off" of the 144,000 you just couldn't be part of the new covenant. I SAID SHOW ME FROM THE BIBLE WITH SCRIPTURE THIS IS SO- & HE COULDN'T- BECAUSE THAT IS NOT A BIBLICAL TEACHING The scriptures say this: Hebrews 8:1-13 Now as to the things being discussed this is the main point: We have such a high priest as this, & he **has sat down**(BACK IN PAULS DAY-ALREADY ON THE THRONE) at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty *in* the *heavens* 2 a public servant of the holy place & of the true tent, which Jehovah put up, & not man. 3 For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts & sacrifices; wherefore it was necessary for this one also to have something to offer. 4 If, now he were upon earth, he would not be a priest, there being [men] who offer the gifts according to the Law 5 but which [men] are rendering sacred service in a typical representation & a shadow of the **heavenly things** just as Moses, when about to make the tent in completion was given the divine command For says he: “See that you make all things after [their] pattern that was shown to you in the mountain.” 6 But now [Jesus] has obtained a more excellent public service so that he is also the mediator of a correspondingly better covenant, which has been legally established upon better promises. 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, no place would have been sought for a second(NOTICE IT DOESNT MENTION A 3RD) 8 for he does find fault with the people when he says:Look! There are days coming, says Jehovah, & I will conclude with the house of Israel and with the house of **Judah**(the tribe of Judah was not purely Israelite, but contained a large admixture of non-Israelites, with a number of Kenizzite groups, the Jerahmeelites, & the Kenites, merging into the tribe at various points) a ***new covenant*** 9 ***Not according to the covenant***(NO PROSELYTING REQUIRED LIKE IN THE OLD LAW) that I made with their forefathers in [the] day of my taking hold of their hand to bring them forth out of the land of Egypt, because they did not continue in my covenant so that I stopped caring for them, says Jehovah. 10 “‘For this is the covenant that I shall covenant with the house of Israel after those days,’ says Jehovah.* ‘I will put my laws in their mind, and in their hearts I shall write them. And I will become their God, and they themselves will become my people. 11 “And they will by no means teach each one his fellow citizen and each one his brother, saying: “Know Jehovah!” For they will *ALL* know me, from [the] least one to [the] greatest one of them. 12 For I shall be merciful to their unrighteous deeds, and I shall by no means call their sins to mind anymore.(SO DOES HE REMEMBER YOUR SINS ANYMORE?) 13 In his saying “a new [covenant]” he has made the former one ***obsolete***... Romans 11:27 27 And this is **the covenant** on my part with them, when I take their sins away.” Galatians 3:29 29 Moreover, if YOU belong to Christ(DO YOU BELONG TO CHRIST?), YOU are really Abraham’s seed,+ heirs with reference to a promise  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #1617)

AND WHO IS THE PROMISE FOR? to Abraham and his Seed,Who is [none other than] Christ (the Messiah). WHO IS THE NEW COVENANT FOR? 22 But the Scriptures [picture all mankind as sinners] shut up and imprisoned by sin, so that [the inheritance, blessing] which was promised through faith in Jesus Christ (the Messiah) might be given (released, delivered, and committed) to [all] those who believe [who adhere to and trust in and rely on Him]. FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD- that he gave his only begotten Son, that ****whosoever believeth in him**** should not perish, but have everlasting life. THAT IS THE NEW COVENANT- FOR WHOSOEVER WILL BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH-BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!!! STOP FOLLOWING MAN & START SEEKING GOD'S WILL THERE IS NO PROSELYTING-WE ARE FREE OF THE LAW- WE ARE ALL GRAFTED IN AS SONS & JOINT HEIRS WITH JESUS(JEHOVAH IS SALVATION) CHRIST THE PROMISE IS FOR WHOSOEVER WILL BELIEVE -RELY ON, & TRUST IN JESUS ALONE FOR SALVATION- Is that what the WTO teaches???? WHY NOT??? WHAT DOES THE BIBLE TEACH??? Romans 10 10 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God,**but not according to knowledge** (I KNOW JW'S LOVE TO POINT OUT THIS VERSE AS A WAY TO PROVE YOU NEED ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE TO BE SAVED...THEY FORGET THE MEANING OF VS 3) 3 For they **being ignorant of God's righteousness**(TH EY ARE IGNORANT OF GODS RIGHTEOUSNESS-THAT 'S THE ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE THEY ARE MISSING-KNOWLEDGE OF GODS RIGHTEOUSNESS)**** and going about to establish their own righteousness( SOUNDS FAMILIAR...ESTABLI SH YOUR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS BY DOING 70HRS OF DOOR TO DOOR PAPER PUSHING), have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. (HOW MANY TIMES AT A kh HAVE YOU SEEN YOUR BROTHERS & SISTERS SUBMIT THEMSELVES TO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD??? WITH PRAYER & INWARD EARNING PUBLICLY FOR MORE OF GOD IN THERE LIVES??? 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to ***every one***that believeth***. 5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. 6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) 7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) 8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. ITS SO SIMPLE- DONT LET A MAN COMPLICATE WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO WHOSOEVER WILL FOR FREE- BY HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS & MERCY & GRACE 1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  (Jul 15, 2012 | post #1611)

16 Now the promises (covenants, agreements) were decreed and made to Abraham and his Seed (his Offspring, his Heir). He [God] does not say, And to seeds (descendants, heirs), as if referring to many persons, but, And to your Seed (your Descendant, your Heir), obviously referring to one individual, Who is [none other than] Christ (the Messiah) 17 This is my argument: The Law, which began 430 years after the covenant [concerning the coming Messiah], does not and cannot annul the covenant previously established (ratified) by God, so as to abolish the promise and make it void. 18 For if the inheritance [of the promise depends on observing] the Law [as these false teachers would like you to believe], it no longer [depends] on the promise; however, God gave it to Abraham [as a free gift solely] by virtue of His promise. 19 What then was the purpose of the Law? It was added [later on, after the promise, to disclose and expose to men their guilt] because of transgressions and [to make men more conscious of the sinfulness] of sin; and it was intended to be in effect until the Seed (the Descendant, the Heir) should come, to and concerning Whom the promise had been made. And it [the Law] was arranged and ordained and appointed through the instrumentality of angels [and was given] by the hand (in the person) of a go-between [Moses, an intermediary person between God and man]. 20 Now a go-between (intermediary) has to do with and implies more than one party [there can be no mediator with just one person]. Yet God is [only] one Person [and He was the sole party in giving that promise to Abraham. But the Law was a contract between two, God and Israel; its validity was dependent on both]. 21 Is the Law then contrary and opposed to the promises of God? Of course not! For if a Law had been given which could confer [spiritual] life, then righteousness and right standing with God would certainly have come by Law. 22 But the Scriptures [picture all mankind as sinners] shut up and imprisoned by sin, so that [the inheritance, blessing] which was promised through faith in Jesus Christ (the Messiah) might be given (released, delivered, and committed) to [all] those who believe [who adhere to and trust in and rely on Him]. 23 Now before the faith came, we were perpetually guarded under the Law, kept in custody in preparation for the faith that was destined to be revealed (unveiled, disclosed), 24 So that the Law served [a][to us Jews] as our trainer [our guardian, our guide to Christ, to lead us] until Christ [came], that we might be justified (declared righteous, put in right standing with God) by and through faith. 25 But now that the faith has come, we are no longer under a trainer (the guardian of our childhood). 26 For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. 27 For as many [of you] as were baptized into Christ [into a spiritual union and communion with Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah] have put on (clothed yourselves with) Christ. 28 There is [now no distinction] neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is not male [b]and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you belong to Christ [are in Him Who is Abraham’s Seed], then you are Abraham’s offspring and [spiritual] heirs according to promise. ***DID YOU GET THAT? OR ARE YOU UNABLE TO READ GODS WORD WITHOUT THE AID OF SOME MANS BOOKLET?***  (Jul 15, 2012 | post #1607)

You said "BUT he is a mediator in 2 ways" STOP RIGHT THERE!!!! Gods word DOESNT SAY HE WAS A MEDIATOR IN 2 WAYS, ONE FOR ANOINTED & ONE FOR "EARTHLY HOPE SHEEP"; thats WTO drivel- GODS WORD DOES SAY THIS: Galatians 3(amp) 3 O you poor and silly and thoughtless and unreflecting and senseless Galatians! Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over you, unto whom—right before your very eyes—Jesus Christ (the Messiah) was openly and graphically set forth and portrayed as crucified? 2 Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying the Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [the message of the Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a law of rituals or from a message of faith?] 3 Are you so foolish and so senseless and so silly? Having begun [your new life spiritually] with the [Holy] Spirit, are you now reaching perfection [by dependence] on the flesh? 4 Have you suffered so many things and experienced so much all for nothing (to no purpose)—if it really is to no purpose and in vain? 5 Then does He Who supplies you with His marvelous [Holy] Spirit and works powerfully and miraculously among you do so on [the grounds of your doing] what the Law demands, or because of your believing in and adhering to and trusting in and relying on the message that you heard? 6 Thus Abraham believed in and adhered to and trusted in and relied on God, and it was reckoned and placed to his account and credited as righteousness (as conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action). 7 Know and understand that it is [really] the people [who live] by faith who are [the true] sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify (declare righteous, put in right standing with Himself) the Gentiles in consequence of faith, proclaimed the Gospel [foretelling the glad tidings of a Savior long beforehand] to Abraham in the promise, saying, In you shall all the nations [of the earth] be blessed. 9 So then, those who are people of faith are blessed and made happy and favored by God [as partners in fellowship] with the believing and trusting Abraham. 10 And all who depend on the Law [who are seeking to be justified by obedience to the Law of rituals] are under a curse and doomed to disappointment and destruction, for it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed (accursed, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment) be everyone who does not continue to abide (live and remain) by all the precepts and commands written in the Book of the Law and to practice them. 11 Now it is evident that no person is justified (declared righteous and brought into right standing with God) through the Law, for the Scripture says, The man in right standing with God [the just, the righteous] shall live by and out of faith and he who through and by faith is declared righteous and in right standing with God shall live. 12 But the Law does not rest on faith [does not require faith, has nothing to do with faith], for it itself says, He who does them [the things prescribed by the Law] shall live by them [not by faith]. 13 Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified); 14 To the end that through [their receiving] Christ Jesus, the blessing [promised] to Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, so that we through faith might [all] receive [the realization of] the promise of the [Holy] Spirit.  (Jul 15, 2012 | post #1606)

Acts 9:15-17 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear**my name**before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: 16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for**my name's sake** 1 Corinthians 5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, ***************** (TELL US- WHAT NAME DO JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES GATHER IN? DOES IT LINE UP TO WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES CHURCHES WHO'S NAME THEY SHOULD GATHER IN?) Ephesians 1:20-22 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Philippians 2:9-10 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above >>>every name<<< (NOT EVERY(OTHER)NAME- NO GREEK ARTICAL FOR "OTHER") 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  (Jul 13, 2012 | post #28)

The 1919 inspection??

I do agree that Jesus is the mediator for anointed & Ive met many who are- and that new covenant is for: In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. 30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge. 31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. JESUS IS THE NEW COVENANT SO: HEB 9:28 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and *****unto them that look for him**** shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that ***whosoever believeth in him*** should not perish, but have everlasting life. DUH BOY- DO YOU BELIEVE ON JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR? OR DO YOU BELIEVE ON BELIEVING ON ASSOCIATING WITH A ORGANIZATION MADE IN 19Whatever to help you earn your salvation because they "Supposetly " are the "only TRUTH" & still fortunately have 2000 or 3000 "anointed class" christens for you to associate with & ride their coat tails into Paradise Earth? Our Bibles say: 5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen. 6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: 7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son. 10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; 11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. 14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. .................. . 30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is *****of faith*****. 31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness. 32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the ***works of the law***. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone; 33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence(Jesus): and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 2 Timothy 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;  (Jul 12, 2012 | post #129)
