RECEIVE GOD’S SPIRIT,
NOT THE WORLD’S
“We received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God,
that we might know the things that have been kindly given us by God.”
—1 COR. 2:12.
What has the WTS said regarding obeying God recently?
Obeying WTS = obeying God?
Snippets abound…phrases taken out of the scripture and strung together to come up what is essentially a rewrite of the Bible. How many jws even look up the scripture to check the snippet in context?
START OF ARTICLE
1, 2. (a) In what sense are true Christians at war?
(b) What questions will we consider?
TRUE Christians are at war! Our enemy
is powerful, cunning, and battle hardened.
He has at his disposal a weapon so
effective that it has subdued the majority of
mankind. But we need not feel powerless or
doomed to defeat. (Isa. 41:10) We have a defense
available to us that is impenetrable
How many non-jws realize that jws believe that jws are the only TRUE Christians, and all others are PROFESSED or SO-CALLED?
MAJORITY = all non-jws
A defense that is not available to anyone but jws.
2 Our war is not physical; it is spiritual.
Our enemy is Satan the Devil, and a prime
weapon that he uses is “the spirit of the
world.” (1 Cor. 2:12) Our key defense against
his attacks is God’s spirit. To survive this war
and remain spiritually vibrant, we need to
ask for God’s spirit and then display its
fruitage in our lives. (Gal. 5:22, 23) What,
though, is the spirit of the world, and how
did it become so influential? How can we determine
whether the spirit of the world is influencing
us? And what can we learn from
Jesus about receiving God’s spirit and resisting
the spirit of the world?
Jws war is not physical….did you even wonder how jws think God is going to get rid of any jws that commit df’ing sins in the “new world”? Will God destroy them like Ananias and Sapphira or will their be public stoning or executions determined by the still “imperfect” elders?
BTW, at what point will people in the “new world” be deemed perfect and accountable like Adam and Eve…at the end of the 1,000 years or some time before?
Isn’t Satan the enemy of the WHOLE human race, not just jws?
So if jws don’t display the fruitage, can we conclude they did not get holy spirit?
The Spirit of the World—Why So Pervasive?
3. What is the spirit of the world?
3 The spirit of this world originates with
Satan, “the ruler of the world,” and it is in
opposition to God’s holy spirit. (John 12:31;
14:30; 1 John 5:19) It is the world’s dominant
inclination, and it moves people to action.
This animating force leads human
society into conflict with God’s will and purpose.
Is the WTS saying that all non-jws aren’t trying hard, yet imperfectly to do what the Bible says, just like jws?
4, 5. How did the spirit that Satan promotes become
4 How did the spirit that Satan promotes
become so pervasive? First, Satan deceived
Eve in the garden of Eden. He convinced her
that independence from God would improve
her life. (Gen. 3:13) What a liar he
proved to be! (John 8:44) Then, through the
woman, he maneuvered Adam into becoming
disloyal to Jehovah. Because of Adam’s
choice, mankind was sold into sin, thus inheriting
a tendency to be influenced by Satan’s
spirit of disobedience.—Read Ephesians
Both Eve deceived—Adam maneuvered
Yet only Adam’s choice “sold” humans into sin…what if only Adam had chosen Satan’s choice…would humans have retained perfection because of Eve’s right choice?
Inheriting a tendency==DNA?==and only through Adam?
Or is it because the WTS teaches that the life-force comes through the man, not the woman.
*** it-2 p. 964 Sin,I ***Sin, along with its consequences, entered and spread to all the human race not merely because Adam was the family head of the race but because he, not Eve, was its progenitor, or human life source.
How did some angels become demons?
5 Satan also influenced a considerable
number of angels, who became demons.
(Rev. 12:3, 4) That betrayal of God occurred
sometime before the Flood of Noah’s day.
Those angels believed that they would be
better off forsaking their assigned positions
in heaven and giving free rein to unnatural
desires on earth. (Jude 6) With the help of
those demons, now back in the spirit realm,
Satan is “misleading the entire inhabited
earth.” (Rev. 12:9) Sadly, the majority of
mankind remain blind to demonic influence.—
2 Cor. 4:4.
Were the angels only interested in temporary sex or had it occurred to them they could not produce children, descendants, for a family line, house, tribe, etc., like humans could?
Since angels could take on human form, chose male because they had the authority and power, could some have chosen to be women if sex was the only goal?
Remain blind—can’t see them yet supposedly humans before Noah could and it didn’t change a thing.
Is the World’s Spirit Influencing You?
6. How only can the spirit of the world infect us?
6 Many are blind to Satan’s influence, but
there is no need for true Christians to be ignorant
of his tactics. (2Cor. 2:11) In fact, the
spirit of the world cannot influence us unless we
allow it to do so. Let us examine four
questions that will help to reveal whether
we are being influenced by God’s spirit or by
that of the world.
Many are blind—only non jws
True Christians—only jws
Cannot influence us unless we allow it to do so—right, no tricks here—Satan made me do it…………….
7. What is one way that Satan tries to alienate us
7 What does my choice of entertainment reveal
about me? (Read James 3:14-18.) Satan
tries to alienate us from God by stirring up
love of violence in our hearts. The Devil
knows that Jehovah hates anyone who loves
violence. (Ps. 11:5) Therefore, Satan tries to
use literature, movies, music, and electronic
games—some of which incite players to simulate
gross immorality and brutality—to appeal
to our fleshly desires. Satan does not
mind if part of our heart is loving what is
right as long as part of it loves what is bad,
what he promotes.—Ps. 97:10.
Many (all non-jws) are blind to Satan
True Christians—only jws
Cannot influence us unless we allow it to do so…no Satan made me do it
Can you love both good and bad at the same time?
8, 9. What questions regarding entertainment
should we ask ourselves?
8 On the other hand, God’s spirit moves
those who receive it to be chaste, peaceable,
and full of mercy. We would do well to ask
ourselves, ‘Does the entertainment I choose
encourage positive qualities in me?’ The
wisdom from above is “not hypocritical.”
Those who are influenced by God’s spirit
do not preach chastity and peace to their
neighbors and then revel in watching sadistic
violence and immorality in the privacy
of their homes.
Ask ourselves or the elders and other “mature Christians” ask us?
Jws are hypocritical constantly preaching what they don’t practice…saying they show love but gossip, lie, shun, mark as bad association, etc.
Sadistic violence and immorality and genocide—read Bible stories that feature all and more. And what explanation does the WTS give for this, that hospitality and the Levite’s religious status was more important to protect than any woman’s honor or life.
*** w56 10/1 p. 596 par. 34***But he did not put her at the mob’s mercy because he failed to love her. He did so only to prevent his sacred office as a Levite from being profaned by forced sodomy or effeminacy.
(Judges 19:1-30) 19 Now it happened in those days that there was no king in Israel. And it came about that a certain Levite was residing for a time in the remotest parts of the mountainous region of E′phra·im. In time he took as his wife a concubine from Beth′le·hem in Judah. 2 And his concubine began to commit fornication against him. Finally she went away from him to the house of her father at Beth′le·hem in Judah and continued there fully four months. 3 Then her husband got up and went after her to speak consolingly to her so as to bring her back; and there were with him his attendant and a couple of he-asses. So she had him come into her father’s house. When the father of the young woman got to see him, he at once rejoiced to meet him. 4 Consequently his father-in-law, the young woman’s father, took hold of him, so that he continued to dwell with him three days; and they would eat and drink, and he would stay overnight there. …10 However, the man did not consent to stay overnight, but he rose and got on his way and came as far as in front of Je′bus, that is to say, Jerusalem; and with him there were the couple of he-asses saddled up, and his concubine and his attendant. ..15 Consequently they turned aside there to go in to stay overnight in Gib′e·ah. And they proceeded to go in and sit down in the public square of the city, and there was nobody taking them on into the house to stay overnight. 16 Eventually, look! an old man coming in from his work in the field at evening, and the man was from the mountainous region of E′phra·im, and he was residing for a time in Gib′e·ah; but the men of the place were Ben′ja·mites. …20 However, the old man said: “May you have peace! Just let any lack of yours be upon me. Only do not stay overnight in the public square.” 21 With that he brought him into his house and threw mash to the he-asses. Then they washed their feet and began to eat and drink.22 While they were making their hearts feel good, look! the men of the city, mere good-for-nothing men, surrounded the house, shoving one another against the door; and they kept saying to the old man, the owner of the house: “Bring out the man that came into your house, that we may have intercourse with him.”23 At that the owner of the house went on out to them and said to them: “No, my brothers, do not do anything wrong, please, since this man has come into my house. Do not commit this disgraceful folly. 24 Here are my virgin daughter and his concubine. Let me bring them out, please, and YOU rape them and do to them what is good in YOUR eyes. But to this man YOU must not do this disgraceful, foolish thing.” 25 And the men did not want to listen to him. Hence the man took hold of his concubine and brought her forth to them outside; and they began to have intercourse with her, and kept on abusing her all night long until the morning, after which they sent her off at the ascending of the dawn. 26 Then the woman came as it was turning to morning, and fell down at the entrance of the man’s house where her master was,—until daylight. 27 Later her master rose up in the morning and opened the doors of the house and went out to get on his way, and, look! the woman, his concubine, fallen at the entrance of the house with her hands upon the threshold! 28 So he said to her: “Rise up, and let us go.” But there was no one answering. At that the man took her upon the ass and rose up and went to his place. 29 Then he entered his house and took the slaughtering knife and laid hold of his concubine and cut her up according to her bones into twelve pieces and sent her into every territory of Israel
9 Jehovah expects exclusive devotion. Satan,
though, will settle for just one act of
worship, as he sought from Jesus. (Luke 4:
7, 8) We might ask ourselves: ‘Does the
entertainment I choose make it possible for
me to give God exclusive devotion? Does
my choice make it harder or easier for me to
resist the spirit of the world? Should I make
any adjustments as to future choices?’
Now think, couldn’t any jw reason that any non-jw entertainment would contaminate a jw with the spirit of the world?
Are any “adjustments” a personal choice or will others decide taking away “privileges” or coming to you with concerns that you might “stumble” someone person unknown to you that has complained to an elder? (In my experience 80% of the time it was his wife that complained.)
10, 11. (a) Regarding material possessions, what
attitude does the spirit of the world promote?
(b) God’s spirit-inspired Word encourages what attitude?
10 What is my attitude toward material
possessions? (Read Luke 18:24-30.) The spirit
of the world promotes “the desire of the
eyes” by encouraging greed and materialism.
(1 John 2:16) It has nurtured in many a
determination to be rich. (1 Tim. 6:9, 10)
That spirit would have us believe that a
stockpile of material things will provide
lasting security. (Prov. 18:11) However, if we
allow a love for money to supplant our love
for God, Satan will have gained a victory.
We should ask ourselves, ‘Has my life become
focused on a quest for material comforts
ATTITUDE toward material possessions—hidden in this is the explanation that elders give to explain why a fellow elder or other baptized male in the congregation can be a millionaire but not be materialistic…it’s not what you have but your ATTITUDE about it. How he has not succumbed to the “greed” of the world that he is not determined to be rich because he already is!
Stockpile material things will provide lasting security—Now with all the disasters, jws all over are getting together their “bag” to grab in an emergency.
11 By contrast, God’s spirit-inspired Word
encourages us to have a balanced view
of money and to work hard to provide
material necessities for ourselves and our
family. (1 Tim. 5:8) God’s spirit helps
those who receive it to reflect Jehovah’s
generous personality. Such ones
are known as givers, not takers.
They value people more highly
than things and gladly
share what they have
when they can afford to
do so. (Prov. 3:27, 28) And
they never allow the pursuit
of money to take precedence
over serving God.
By contrast, God’s spirit-inspired Word
encourages us to have a balanced view
of money—BALANCED VIEW??
Isn’t it the love of money, not the having of money? How many of us knew elders who had nice houses, cars, trips, etc., but were not labeled as materialistic because they made the national average of hours? Or saw the same elders counsel other jws as being materialistic who had less than they did?
Shouldn’t all jws be pioneering; you can find examples of married jws, those with many children, single parents with several children all regular pioneering…is there any excuse for any jw then not to pioneer since you can find an example of one doing so with your same circumstances?
*** w01 6/15 p. 6 How Can You Keep a Balanced View of Money?***Does this mean that it is wrong to want a bigger house, a newer car, a more profitable job? No, none of these things are evil in themselves. The question is: What is the heart attitude that makes one want any of these things, and are they really necessary?
*** w93 2/15 p.11 ***Paul and Mary, mentioned at the outset, were Jehovah’s Witnesses. For many years they shared in the full-time evangelizing work. However, their desire for riches caused them to stop attending meetings of the Christian congregation, and they stopped sharing their faith in the public ministry
givers not takers, value people more highly
gladly share...when can afford to do so ===widow's mite???, did she only give what she could afford to?
Does having money make one materialistic…how many rich jws have you known that were honored by other jws? I can remember one BOE wanted to buy flowers for a wealthy sister’s funeral in another congregation…but not tell the current congregation…too cheap to pay for them…a brother spoke up asking why this sister and not a one that had died last month in that congregation…the answer, she had donated much money to this congregation when she attended.
(Luke 21:1-4) . . .Now as he looked up he saw the rich dropping their gifts into the treasury chests. 2 Then he saw a certain needy widow drop two small coins of very little value there, 3 and he said: “I tell YOU truthfully, This widow, although poor, dropped in more than they all did. 4 For all these dropped in gifts out of their surplus, but this [woman] out of her want dropped in all the means of living she had.”
12 Which spirit does my personality reflect?
(Read Colossians 3:8-10, 13.)
The spirit of the world advances the works
of the flesh. (Gal. 5:19-21) A real test as to
which spirit influences us comes, not when
things are going well, but when they are
not, such as if a Christian brother or sister ignores
us, offends us, or even sins against us.
Additionally, in the privacy of our homes, it
may become evident which spirit holds
sway. Some self-examination may be in order.
Ask yourself, ‘Over the past six months,
Has my personality become more Christlike
or have I slipped back into some bad habits
of speech and conduct?’
ugly Satan picture-----------angel of light? Sorry, I can post this picture here but can find WT at www.jw.org
IGNORES US = SHUNS
OFFENDS US = something that would offend anyone, HARMFUL GOSSIP
SINS AGAINST US = adultery, molest your child, steals from us, lies about us causing deep harm
PRIVACY OF OUR HOMES = God is not seeing
Some self-examination--self?? Or will the elders and other “mature” Christians help you out?
Perhaps some elders could ask themselves the following:
Over the past six months,
Has my personality become more Christlike
or have I slipped back into some bad habits
of speech and conduct?’
13 God’s spirit can help us to “strip off the
old personality with its practices” and to
clothe ourselves with “the new personality.”
That will help us to become more loving
and kind. We will be inclined to forgive one
another freely, even if there seems to be a legitimate
cause for complaint. We will no
longer react to perceived injustices with
outbursts of “malicious bitterness and anger
and wrath and screaming and abusive
speech.” Instead, we will put forth effort to
12, 13. In contrast with the world’s spirit, how can
God’s spirit affect us for our good?
become “tenderly compassionate.”—Eph. 4:
Strip off what practices
MORE loving and king assumes they are already
Inclined to forgive if there is no apologies or improved actions?
Has anyone here ever been abused verbally by a self-righteous elder?
14. How do many in the world view God’s Word?
14 Do I respect and love the Bible’s moral
standards? (Read Proverbs 3:5, 6.) The spirit
of the world reflects rebellion against
God’s Word. Those influenced by this spirit
ignore what they view as inconvenient
parts of the Bible, preferring instead human
traditions and philosophies. (2 Tim. 4:
3, 4) Some disregard God’s Word altogether.
Such ones question the Bible’s relevance
and authenticity, becoming wise in
their own eyes. They water down its pure
standards regarding adultery, homosexuality,
and divorce. They teach that “good is bad
and bad is good.” (Isa. 5:20) Have we been
affected by this spirit? Do we rely on human
wisdom, including our own ideas, when facing
problems? Or do we strive to follow the
Has the WTS ignored "inconvenient" parts of the Bible? How many times do you think the WTS has discussed the account of the concubine cut up into 12 pieces?
How about the elders that helped a fellow take pictures through the window of his ex-wife's house to get proof so he could get a "scriptural" divorce to marry the sister he was already involved with?
RELY ON HUMAN WISDOM = THE WTS/GB/FDS WISDOM
Satan uses the spirit of the world
to control people, but we can
break free of its influence
15. Rather than lean on our own wisdom, what
should we do?
15 God’s spirit engenders in us a respect
for the Bible. Like the psalmist, we view
God’s word as both a lamp to our foot and a
light to our roadway. (Ps. 119:105) Rather
than lean on our own wisdom, we confidently
rely on God’s written Word to help us
discern right from wrong. We learn not only
to respect the Bible but also to love God’s law.
RELY ON GOD'S WORD AND EXPLAINED BY THE GB ONLY???
Learn From Jesus’ Example
16. What is involved in having “the mind of
16 To receive God’s spirit, we must develop
in ourselves “the mind of Christ.” (1 Cor.
2:16) Having “the same mental attitude that
Christ Jesus had” requires our knowing the
way he thought and acted and then imitating
him. (Rom. 15:5; 1 Pet. 2:21) Consider
some ways that we can do so.
MIND OF CHRIST--not mind of God?
How many jws really know much about Jesus considering how the WTS proudly emphasizes God three times more often?
*** re chap. 7 p. 36 Rekindle That First Love! ***In the songbook produced by Jehovah’s people in 1905, there were twice as many songs praising Jesus as there were songs praising Jehovah God. In their 1928 songbook, the number of songs extolling Jesus was about the same as the number extolling Jehovah. But in the latest songbook of 1984, Jehovah is honored by four times as many songs as is Jesus. This is in harmony with Jesus’ own words: “The Father is greater than I am.” (John 14:28) Love for Jehovah must be preeminent, accompanied by deep love for Jesus and appreciation of his precious sacrifice and office as God’s High Priest and King.
17, 18. (a) What do we learn from Jesus about
prayer? (b) Why should we “keep on asking”?
17 Pray for God’s spirit. Before facing trials,
Jesus prayed for God’s spirit to help him.
(Luke 22:40, 41)We too need to ask God for
his holy spirit. Jehovah gives it freely and
generously to all who ask for it in faith.
(Luke 11:13) Jesus said: “Keep on asking,
and it will be given you; keep on seeking,
and you will find; keep on knocking, and it
will be opened to you. For everyone asking
receives, and everyone seeking finds, and
to everyone knocking it will be opened.”
—Matt. 7:7, 8.
How can you tell you have received holy spirit...what evidence...what proof...?
18 When seeking Jehovah’s spirit and
help, do not be too quick to stop asking for
it. We may need to pray more often and to
linger in prayer. At times, Jehovah allows his
petitioners to demonstrate the depth of
their concern and the genuineness of their
faith before he answers their prayers.*
*For more information, see pages 170-173 of the
book What Does the Bible Really Teach?
Why does someone have to ask many, many, many times in order for God to give his spirit.
Woman asking judge---application, so is the WTS is saying that God is like this judge who “had no fear of God and had no respect for man”?
(Luke 18:1-8) . . .Then he went on to tell them an illustration with regard to the need for them always to pray and not to give up, 2 saying: “In a certain city there was a certain judge that had no fear of God and had no respect for man. 3 But there was a widow in that city and she kept going to him, saying, ‘See that I get justice from my adversary at law.’ 4 Well, for a while he was unwilling, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Although I do not fear God or respect a man, 5 at any rate, because of this widow’s continually making me trouble, I will see that she gets justice, so that she will not keep coming and pummeling me to a finish.’” 6 Then the Lord said: “HEAR what the judge, although unrighteous, said! 7 Certainly, then, shall not God cause justice to be done for his chosen ones who cry out to him day and night, even though he is long-suffering toward them? 8 I tell YOU, He will cause justice to be done to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man arrives, will he really find the faith on the earth?”
What about your children...do you feel their asking many, many times proves they should get it.
19. What did Jesus always do, and why should we
19 Obey Jehovah completely. Jesus always
did the things pleasing to his Father. On at
least one occasion, Jesus’ inclination on
how to deal with a situation was different
from what his Father wanted. Yet, with confidence
he said to his Father: “Let, not my
will, but yours take place.” (Luke 22:42) Ask
yourself, ‘Do I obey God even when doing
so is not easy?’ Obedience to God is essential
for life. We owe him implicit obedience
as our Maker, the Source and Sustainer of
our life. (Ps. 95:6, 7) There is no substitute
for obedience. We cannot gain God’s favor
Obey God or the WTS completely?
What if you can see what they teach is not scriptural...should you still do it?
20. Jesus’ life revolved around what, and how can
we imitate him?
20 Know the Bible well. When resisting Satan’s
direct attack on his faith, Jesus quoted
the Scriptures. (Luke 4:1-13) When confronting
his religious opposers, Jesus used
God’s Word as his authority. (Matt. 15:3-6)
Jesus’ whole life revolved around knowing
and fulfilling God’s law. (Matt. 5:17)We too
want to keep feeding our mind with the
faith-strengthening Word of God. (Phil. 4:
8, 9) Finding time for personal and family
Study may prove to be a challenge for some
of us. Rather than find time, though, we
may have to make time.—Eph. 5:15-17.
KNOW THE BIBLE WELL--How many know how many books, OT and NT, names, authors, names of 12 apostles
Snippets and quotes only...except for the scriptures the WT conductor is directed to have read...a newer process due to the lack of scriptural use by the conductor and the audience. Why do you have to direct adults who say they base their beliefs on the bible to use the bible to back up their statements?
Find time only a challenge for SOME OF US
Have to MAKE time; not hard to say if your meals, laundry, cleaning are done for you.
Perhaps too it is that there is no enjoyment in the WTS way of reading the Bible...how many jws willingly read the bible from beginning to end. I discovered many strange concepts and stories when I did that...the concubine of 12 pieces, Abraham lying about Sarah not being his wife, David not being executed for adultery and murder....
21. What arrangement can we use to help us know
God’s Word better and apply it?
21 “The faithful and discreet slave” has
helped us to have time for personal and
family study by arranging for a Family
Worship evening each week. (Matt. 24:45)
Are you making wise use of this arrangement?
To help you gain the mind of Christ,
could you include in your study session
a systematic consideration of what Jesus
taught on subjects of your choice? You
could use the Watch Tower Publications Index
to locate informative discussions of the
subject you are pursuing. For example, from
2008 to 2010, the public edition of this magazine
carried a series of 12 articles that had
the theme “What We Learn From Jesus.”
You may want to use these articles as a basis
for study. Beginning in 2006, Awake! carried
the feature “How Would You Answer?” This
quiz was designed to help broaden and
deepen your knowledge of God’s Word.
Why not include material from such features
in your Family Worship program from
time to time?
Is the Family Worship evening and different than the weekly family study of many years? Is it new or just a new name?
Gain the mind of Christ, why not God's; jws are encouraged to have a relationship with God but very, very, very rarely Jesus.
If an article is not the study article and perhaps a Question from Readers, jws have no time to read it.
These articles are only 3 years old; either jws never read them or the WTS thinks the rank and file have short memories.
Why no suggestion to just read a chapter of the bible and discuss it as a group?
jws are even taught to turn to a book, the Reasoning book, to answer scriptural questions because they have no clue what scriptures to use, whether jws for 10 or 50 years.
We Can Conquer the World
22, 23. What must we do to conquer the world?
22 To be led by God’s spirit, we must resist
the spirit of the world. Such resistance does
not come easily. It can be a struggle, a hard
fight. (Jude 3) But we can win! Jesus said to
his disciples: “In the world you are having
tribulation, but take courage! I have conquered
the world.”—John 16:33.
Does the WTS consider the great crowd/other sheep conquerors?
23 We too can conquer the world if we resist
its spirit and do all we can to receive
God’s spirit. Really, “if God is for us, who
will be against us?” (Rom. 8:31) By receiving
God’s spirit and by following its direction as
outlined in the Bible, we will find contentment,
peace, happiness, and the assurance
of everlasting life in the new world near at
How does a jw he/she has received holy spirit? Do they see for themselves what the bible has outlined or do they depend on the WTS teaching of what it says?

“We live in a world where millions no longer know whom or what to trust” aptly describes many jws now ex-jws. Think of some areas or individuals you no longer trust.
