To all Jehovah's Witnesses:
What is our problem to day, given the present-day delemma/crisis facing each one of us today?
As I review most of the comments of brothers today, it seems incomprehensible to many JWs and
and interested outsiders as well to consider the fact that God's People can fail miserably.
It happened in the past, and it can happen again.
Jehovah's Witnesses, have also failed, too. They have missed the mark.
They must now, "search for Jehovah." Search.
Their hierarchy has failed them... even the WTS Headquarters staff...the presumed FDS.
Okay, so we must accept hard facts...
HARD FACT: The WTS is a false prophet, and is not the FDS as so claimed.
Accept that fact. Call "a spade, a spade."
But, now we are brought to some harsh realities,
But still, we must come to know this,
ANOTHER FACT: "Know Jehovah." -- Hebrews 8:11
Do we as christians, really, "know Jehovah..." do we?
Where have we found ourselves, without the WTS to guide us...
Did the WTS "teach us," to "Know Jehovah!"...Did they?
We remember, Paul said at Hebrews 8:11,
"And they will by no means teach each one his fellow citizens and each one his brother, saying: "Know Jehovah!" For they will all know me, from the least one to the greatest one of them."
As recipients of the New Covenant, the actual fulfillment of the Covenant was to PRODUCE A PEOPLE FOR GOD
WHO REALLY KNEW HIM...
has this occurred, I ask?
Do we really, "Know Jehovah!", or do we NEED SOMEONE TO TEACH US ALL ABOUT HIM AGAIN?
Have we fulfilled the Christian Covenant, the New Covenant administered by Christ?
Can we say, as Christ, that we "know Jehovah!"?
Do we "know Jehovah!"?
It seems we have the same problem of those of ancient Israel, too,
They did not "Know Jehovah!" either, and this after hundreds and hundreds of years studying His Laws, principles, standards...studying His ways, His dealings, hearing his "prophets," the words they would speak... and still,
they did not come to "Know Jehovah!"...
But still, God made the promise for them too...
As we read at Jeremiah 31:34,
"And they will no more teach each one his companion and each one his brother, saying, "Know Jehovah!" For they will all of them know me, from the least one of them even to the greatest one of them," is the utterance of Jehovah... for I shall forgive their error and their sin I shall remember no more."
That promise was held out to ancient Israel...because the nation had not come to "Know Jehovah!"
Are we not, in the same position today, even though we claim to be "christian"?
Jesus reminded Israel of this fact, when he came, in the 17th chapter of John, verses 25, 26...when he said
"righteous father, the world [kosmos, Jewish system] HAS NOT COME TO KNOW YOU..."
Why have we not come to "Know Jehovah!"
Why can we not see that Jehovah God is going to "reward each one according to his behavior," just at the Bible promises...
The WTS is not exempt...the fake FDS...
Remember, Jehovah God, is going to DEFEND HIS NAME, no matter what...
He will defend His honor, glory, His Great Illuustrious Name...
We will KNOW THIS, is we have
"come to Know Jehovah!"
Do we "Know Jehovah!", I ask?
