HIS VOICE SHALL NOT BE HEARD IN THE STREETS, (Isa. 42:1-4.)
The Jehovah’s Witnesses Society say they are not a church institution “like the daughters of Mother Rome,” the founder church of all Christianity. Yet, as we will see in this study, just as the “church system,” their society is not about the believing body of Christ and the truth of the Bible. They also cling to manmade norms, forms, and a hierarchical priesthood that teach false doctrines; blending paganism, masonry especially, with Bible Scripture. Although their members gather in “kingdom halls” and not churches, they also call themselves “Christian.” As with all my other work, I am not “judging” them or their characters in this study, but as they disseminate their beliefs worldwide, we all need to “see whether this is from God” and according to the Truth and context of Scripture, as God commanded in 1 Ths. 5:21 and 1 Jn. 1:1-4.
Isaiah 42:2 proclaims the following fulfilled prophecy concerning Jesus, the Savior of the whole world for everyone who would personally believe in Him, accept Him, and follow Him according to the truth of His Word, (Jn. 3:16; 1:1-13; 14:6.) “Behold My Servant Whom I uphold, My Elected One in Whom My soul delights… He will bring forth justice to [both believing Hebrews and all those from the Gentile nations, Jn. 3:16-17.] He will not cry out, nor raise His voice, nor cause His voice to be heard in the streets...”
So, how do Jehovah’s Witnesses justify their aggressive street and house-to-house evangelization? They get their ‘mandate’ to ‘turn the whole world into Jehovah’s Witnesses’ from their society’s leaders of course, not from the contextual truth of Scripture. They are working so diligently to spread their organization’s literature worldwide because they believe they are “doing Jehovah’s will” - and because they believe they are gaining ’points’ that add Jehovah’s favor.
However, Paul taught that a lifelong process of the “renewal of the [sinful, indoctrinated] mind” must follow our personal acceptance of Jesus and His Scriptural Truth. This can only happen through personal study to understand the contextual truth of the Bible, to “know what is that good, acceptable, perfect will of God,” (Rom. 12:12-2.) In all of this, God’s Holy Spirit, (not an impersonal ‘force’ such as electricity but God Himself,) is the Only Source of Truth because He is the Only Real Teacher of the Bible, Who also works through Jesus’ real disciples, (Jn. 16:13; 14:26; Mt. 28:19-20.)
JWs view Jehovah as an “invisible spirit ‘person’ separate from the Son, Jesus Christ, Who is a ‘creature’ of God and not divine.” They say the Holy Spirit is God’s “active force,” not God Himself.” [Wikipedia.] “The kingdom of God is a real government in heaven that will soon replace human governments and accomplish God’s [new paradise] on earth. Jesus is the King of God’s kingdom in heaven that he began ruling in 1914.” [The Gospel Coalition.] Satan is, just like Jesus, “a son of God,” who became a ‘man slayer’ and is behind all the corruption in the world.
Paul warned that the society, organization, political party, religion or church that controls our minds, controls us. “Therefore, gird up the loins of your mind; be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of [the true, Biblical] Jesus Christ… not conforming yourselves to [manmade philosophies and religious structures...] Because the end of your faith is the salvation of your souls. [The soul is the human mind, where the will, intellect and emotions are seated; not the supernatural, ever-living human spirit, which share the human body while we are alive on earth,] (1 Ths. 5:23; 1 Pt. 1:9, 13-19.)
In truth, true believers in Christ are in a lifelong battle for the renewal of their minds, because from birth and way beyond what religious institutions teach as salvation, the enemy of our souls will try to deceive us into believing we can understand God’s Word, (the full contextual truth of the Bible,) as we choose. However, “as the serpent deceived Eve... so our minds were corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus Whom we have not preached [according to the truth of Scripture,] and if you receive a different spirit [than the Holy Spirit of the Bible,] and [if you believe] a different gospel which [is not in the full context of New Testament Covenant in Christ,] you may well put up with it!” (2 Cor. 11:3-4.)
This is why Jehovah’s Witnesses and every other person, who do not seriously search for God’s own Truth, found only in the “entirety of Scripture,” are in serious spiritual danger, (2 Tim. 3:16.)
It is, therefore, distressing to know how this society views God’s eternal Word, the Bible: “Watch Tower publications teach that the Bible is an "organizational book" that does not belong to individuals and cannot be understood without guidance by "Jehovah's visible organization".
DESPITE THE DENIAL OF THE JW’S, THE FOLLOWING PROVES THEIR RELIGION WAS FOUNDED BY MASONIC ORDERS
Masonic Orders are not ‘charity’ organizations, ‘non-religious’ organizations, or extensions of Christianity and other religions. Although they accept people from all religions, Christianity in particular, into their orders, they have only one god called Jahbulon in the lower degrees, who is revealed as Baphomet in the higher degrees. They do worship a god, and their dogmas declare he is none other than Lucifer.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses and their ‘Kingdom Halls’ are supposedly famous for their “lack of signs and insignia.” However, if ever there is one fact that towers above all other facts, it is the immovable truth that, in the second half of the 19th century and the early 20th century, when Charles Taze Russell and Joseph Franklin Rutherford formed the Jehovah’s Witness Society, masonic orders were veiled in complete obscurity. It would have been impossible for non-masons to Christianize masonic doctrine, masonic sayings, and vocabulary the way Charles Taze Russell did.

Above: The masonic pyramid near the grave of Jehovah’s Witness Founder, Charles Taze Russell. The inscription below the Roman Catholic, Masonic Knights Templar symbol, the cross and the crown, (Christianized by even the Baptist and the Apostolic Faith Mission Churches,) reads, WATCHTOWER BIBLE & TRACT SOCIETY.
This undoubtedly proves Russell based his Watchtower teachings on masonic doctrine. Until 1931, the Jehovah’s Witness Society placed the cross and crown symbol on its publications. However, later on, they argued that Jesus was not crucified on a cross, but on “a single, upright post.” Relating the cross to Satanism, they will not look at, or touch a cross.
However, this Watchtower Bible & Tract Society pyramid proves that masonic orders orchestrated all unscriptural churches, and also the Jehovah’s Witnesses Establishment. Masons can never resist the urge to boast about their evil connections, influence, and works. Hence, photographs, masonic signs, towers (their symbol of phallic and sun worship,) and pyramids, always tell the truth about church leaders and the clandestine origins of their doctrines and prophecies.
Since Medieval times, no one, except their “free and accepted mason brothers,” who were all sworn to silence at the peril of their own lives, knew anything about the dark agendas, secret initiations, and underhanded works of masonic societies. (Is it still strange that JWs call their organization a “society?”) During that time, as in our day, the only face that masonic societies presented to the “unenlightened,” non-masonic world, was that masons represent ‘noble freemasonry’ and ‘gentlemanly,’ ‘charitable’ works.
Today, the destructive political and religious plans and doctrines of global masonic orders are common knowledge. The history channel and many other reputable reporters boldly expose them. The internet bustles with their evil political and religious mayhem and control. Books, telling it all, have been written by numerous ex-masons. It is a fact that nearly every evil of our modern world, including the birth and proliferation of all churches, pertain to their secret influence on every sphere of life. I believe masonic orders are behind the realization of Jesus’ prophecy that in the end of the end-time, political carnage and religious deception would dominate the whole world, (Mt. 24:23-28.)
The masonic religion was designed by Satan and thus, it is dedicated to satanic worship under the cloak of all other religions. Towers, pyramids, and the compass and square, (signifying the sun god in constant copulation with the Mother Earth goddess,) are some of the most important symbols of the ‘Great Architect’ of the masonic lodge. Ancient Babylonian worship and Egyptology guide their dogmas. Secretly, all masons are racists, communists, imperialists, and evolutionists. They are clandestine occult masters and through their so-called ‘innocent’ rituals and incantations, they practice pure black magic, which mostly mock the God of the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Hence, no masonic order really consists of ‘gentlemen,’ who are ‘honest’ or ‘free.’ (Their control is also symbolized by the Rosicrucian ‘cross’ that was prevalent among Protestant church fathers such as John Calvin and Martin Luther.) The control of masonic orders spell eternal death and everlasting darkness. Contrary to what they profess, there is nothing free or noble about any of them, or about any church, society, or institution, (either political or religious,) that sprouted from them.

Above: This badge and its description come from the masonic source book. Note the popular ‘Cross and Crown’ symbol that typified JWs, and still typify the Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM,) and other Christian organizations and churches. “The York Rite has similarities and differences in ritual, degrees and practices among the various countries where it is working today. Within the USA, the first five degrees are grouped together as Royal Arch, the next two as Cryptic Mason degrees, and the last three as the Chivalric degrees. The culmination of the Chivalric triplet is the Order of the Temple, which makes the Mason a [Roman Catholic] Knights Templar.”

Above left: Note the ‘rose’ in the middle of the cross on the emblem of the Rosicrucian Order. Middle: The Divine Plan of the Ages by JW founder Charles T. Russell displays the badge of the Rosicrucian Order, and the “winged globe” or the flying sun disk of the Uraei, as found in the temples of the gods of Egypt. It is clear that Russell did not serve the God of the Bible, although he pretended otherwise!
Above far right: Note the masonic pyramid on this edition of “The divine plan of the ages.” This is pure masonic order dogma and their false gods explained in Jehovah’s Witness Egyptology. The flying sun disk is described as follows by Murray Hope in ‘Practical Egyptian Magic,’ “Emblematic of the element of air, this consists of a circle or solar-type disk enclosed by a pair of wings. In ritual magic it is suspended over the altar in an easterly direction and used when invoking the protection and co-operation of the sylphs…” Naville in the ‘Myths of Horus,’ wrote, “’Horus commanded Thoth that the Winged-Sun-Disk, with Uraei, should be brought into every sanctuary wherein he dwelt, and into every sanctuary of all the gods of the lands of the South and the North, and in Amentet, in order that they might drive away evil from therein....’ This is what is meant by the Winged-Disks, with the Uraei, which are seen over the entrances of the courts of the temples of all the gods and goddesses of Egypt.”
