A WORD FOR THE JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES 2

KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 2:8 KJV” For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast”.

Once again, I wish to share a few thoughts with our brothers and sisters of JEHOVAH’S Witnesses. The watch Tower Bible and tract society teaches that one’s salvation is not complete by believing in Jesus alone, but must promote the teaching of the JEHOVAH’S witnesses before he can be saved. They are saying that, to believe in the finished work of our Lord Jesus is not enough to save a man. By this explanation or statement, I realize they have gotten the whole concept of salvation wrong.

What does it mean to be saved? This is what Ephesians 2:8 clearly teaches” For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”: The verse nine adds that it is not of works lest anyone should boast. The verse 8 says. It is by grace. (Grace is the divine working of the Holy Spirit in the heart and life of a man that produces an outward effect). We receive the Holy Spirit to perform His works by faith. There is nothing more to be done. The Bible even said it is not of works lest any man should boast. The watch tower Bible and tract society teaches one must add works to it to make it complete. I clearly realize the Watch Tower Bible Society does not understand what salvation is. What is salvation. It is a regeneration of the spirit of a man. Tit 3:5 KJV “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” ;Once again the Bible emphasizes that it is not the works of righteousness but the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit. It is a divine creation of a new personality through the agency of the Holy Spirit and the word of God. No human effort can add anything to it.

By virtue of the teaching of the JW’ S, are they saved?  One is saved if he or she accepts what the Bible teaches. These teachings of the JW’S does not accept what the Bible teaches. Whenever truth is compromised by adding something to it, it ceases to be what it is. My dear brothers of the JEHOVAH’S Witnesses in the light of what the Bible says you are missing it seriously. Where does works come in?  Works come in after one is saved. After you have received the divine nature you live the divine life by the ability of the Holy Spirit. Dear brothers and sisters of JEHOVAH’S Witnesses you need to accept what the Bible teaches, not what the watch tower Bible society teaches. You can’t be saved if you go with the teachings of the watch tower Bible society. Do not be brainwashed to your eternal destruction, accept what the Bible teaches. May the Lord show you kindness as you decide to accept what the Bible says.

You can pray the following prayer to turn to Jesus in truth

PRAYER

My God Jehovah, I come to you by acknowledging what the Bible says about salvation. I can’t be saved by my effort or works. I repent of my ways and submit to the Lordship of Jesus over my life today.
