Defending God’s Truth in Church Doctrine and Political History   –    Renette Vermeulen

(Continued from) 


Jehovah’s Witnesses actually have two eternal destinations, which exclude hell or torment of any kind.  They believe that only 144,00O, (the ‘born again bride’ and ‘Israel of god’) will make it to heaven, no one else.  But most appallingly, they say this number was completed in 1935, when the “door to ‘the heavenly hope’ was shut.”  Henceforward, JWs only have an ‘earthly hope.’  They know they cannot enter into heaven anymore.  But they may still hope that, “after “Armageddon, when the evil world system ruled by Satan, [not the earth itself and everything in it, as described throughout Scripture,] is conquered, [not destroyed: 2 Peter 3:10-14,] they will [allegedly] live in a ‘restored paradise’ here on earth – a place just like the original garden in Eden used to be.”   

Now the entire Bible, the New Testament Covenant in Christ especially, makes it clear that God is not into ‘restoring’ or ‘changing’ fallen humanity, governments, sin, or this earth, which is so dreadfully contaminated by humanity’s fall in Eden.  JWs won’t understand the following Scriptural requirement, but Jesus commanded that “everyone” must be spiritually born again through personal faith in, and acceptance of Him and His complete atonement in their place, (Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5.)  This makes for ‘new [spiritual] creations in Christ,’ (Galatians 2:19-21,) not ‘restored’ sinners that join churches, societies, and organizations with unrenewed ‘hearts’ and corrupted minds. 

What’s more, heaven is an eternal spiritual place where God and the holy angels live.  At the moment of death, the ever living human spirits of sincere, personally believing disciples of the True Christ Jesus of the Bible, (real spiritually born again believers,) go to live for all eternity with Him in heaven, just as He promised the man next to Him on the cross, (1 Ths. 5:23! Lu. 23:43; 16:22.)  However, after death, their physical dead bodies will ‘sleep’ or remain in the grave until Jesus returns, to be miraculously ‘transformed’ into glorified bodies, similar to Jesus’ body when He literally rose from the dead, (Lu. 24:39 KJV! 1 Ths. 4:16! 1 Cor. 15:51-54!)  However, JWs, just as the Old, New, and other Apostolic churches, (which are based on Greek mythology and masonic orders,) most erroneously believe Jesus rose only “spiritually” from the grave!     

As said, at Jesus’ return, once He has taken His true believers from the earth, the earth and everyone and everything on it will be destroyed, (Mt. 25:1-13! 2 Pt. 3:7, 10-14.)  “The [atmospheric] heavens and the earth, which are now preserved by the same Word, are reserved for [literal] fire until the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men [not an evil world-system!]  Verse 10, “The Day of the Lord [Jesus’ return to earth,] will come as a thief in the night, [unexpectedly not secretly,] in which the [atmospheric] heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat: both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up…” This destruction is literal — and it does not refer only to “an evil world system.” 


The two classes that fit into JWs ‘heaven’ and their ‘paradise on earth:’  Of course only those who joined the Jehovah’s Witnesses Society will supposedly be saved from ‘annihilation at Armageddon.’ The Society has a “caste/class system.”  Only 144,000 JW, the so-called “anointed” “Ruling Class,” is already in heaven.  The second class JWs among them is the “earthly class” or “discreet slave class.”  This class comprises of all JWs that were able to be chosen by Jehovah to be part of this organization.  All non-JWs will allegedly be annihilated at Armageddon. 

“Their second founder-president Rutherford explained that in addition to the 144,000 "anointed" who would be resurrected — or transferred at death — to live in heaven to rule over earth with Christ, a separate class, the "great multitude," or the “other sheep” would live in paradise, or the “restored earth.”  From 1935, new converts to the movement were considered part of the slave class as the number of 144,000 ‘anointed’ was complete. [Wikipedia.] 

“The faithful and discreet slave class” is the term used by Jehovah's Witnesses to describe the group's governing body in its role of establishing doctrines and teachings. This group is described as a "class" that operates under the direct control of Jesus Christ, [supposedly the archangel Michael,] to exercise teaching authority in all matters pertaining to doctrine and articles of faith…” 

This bickering over ‘classes’ is totally unscriptural. 1 Corinthians 12:13-31 explains that the believing body of Jesus,’ of whom He Alone is the Head, (Colossians 1:18,) whether they are Hebrews or from the Gentile (non-Jewish) nations, are ALL ONE in Christ.  “There is therefore [spiritually] no Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female; all are One in Christ Jesus,” (Gal. 3:28.)  Concerning all the ‘dates’ of his society, there is only One Date everyone must be concerned about: That One Day when Jesus returns! And of That Day and Hour NO man or angel knows! (Mt. 24:36!) 



Wikipedia reports, “Jehovah's Witnesses teach that the United Nations is the "image of the wild beast" referred to in Revelation 13:1-18 and the fulfilment of the "disgusting thing that causes desolation" from Matthew 24:15. Jehovah's Witnesses believe that God will use the United Nations to destroy "false religion," wherein all institutionalized religions except Jehovah's Witnesses will be destroyed. They further believe that after all other religions are destroyed, "a coalition of nations" will then turn against Jehovah's Witnesses to destroy them, but Jehovah will intervene and destroy all political elements. They believe this act of divine intervention will be Armageddon, the final part of the Great Tribulation.” [Wikipedia.]

Of course, the Great Tribulation, which Jesus warned about in Matthew 24 and elsewhere in Scripture, is an escalating process of worldwide political and religious oppression that will culminate just before the His return.  All the churches, societies, and establishments that twist and abuse God’s Holy Word to sustain their dogmas, norms, and forms like the JWs do, are all part of  what causes this tribulation. In fact, all these religions and denominations of Christianity were birthed by Roman Catholic Jesuits and other Illuminati agents.  They typify the age of deception we are now living in, and which Jesus warned to seriously about in Matthew 24:11-14, “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.  And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many [for the Truth of God, His Word, and His true disciples] will grow cold.  But he who endures to the end shall be saved.  And this [true Gospel of the Bible] will be preached [like never before,] and then the end will come.”   


Beside the ‘ark’ or their ‘spiritual home,’ (the JW’s ‘organization of salvation,’) the whole world with all its other beliefs systems, religions, churches, and political systems is “dominated by Satan the devil, whose end at the battle of Armageddon is imminent.”  That is why JWs practice exclusivity and will only mix with other people to batter them into their “paradise on earth.”  However, Christ Jesus is the Only God of this world and of His entire creation, (Jn. 1:1-14; Heb. 1:1-4.) “EVERYONE who [choose] to believe [and follow’ Him] will NOT perish, but HAVE eternal life! He who [fully] believes in Him is not condemned; but the who does NOT believe is condemned already… And this is the condemnation… that men love the darkness [of sin and false religion] rather than [Jesus’] Light [and Truth,] because their deeds are evil...” (Jn. 3:16-21.)  So, everyone who rejects Jesus as God and Christ, and disobeys the truth of His Word, joined those who are of “the world [without Him,] which is in the power [or under the deception] of the evil one,” (1 Jn. 5:18-19.)  Remember, JWs’ do not talk about the real, Biblical Kingdom of God, which is “inside all true believers,” (Luke 17:21 KJV,) through the indwelling Holy Spirit, (1 Corinthians 3:16.)  Their ‘ark’ is their religious system, which attempts to take the place of Jesus the Savior, the born again spiritual body of Christ, and the unseen, spiritual Kingdom of GodFor this reason, their churches are called “Kingdom Halls!” 

Allegedly, the battle of ‘Armageddon’ will be the annihilation of all the evil systems in this world – all the systems, which are not under JW control, that is.  In this way, God will supposedly ‘change this fallen world by purging it from all governments and non-JWs, to establish a JW society of true worshippers here on earth.’    However, the True Word of God states that the entire earth itself will literally be destroyed when Jesus returns on the clouds (2 Pt. 3:10-14; 2 Ths. 1:6-12!) 

As someone fittingly commented, “Basically, if you are not one of them, your will perish at ‘Armageddon.’  End of story.”  Now, one can understand why all Jehovah’s Witnesses are preachers on a mission to spread ‘their truth’ and the ‘good [or actually very bad] news’ that ‘their organization is the only way out of the Tribulation and Armageddon.’  They firmly believe the organisation is the only hope of escaping ‘annihilation,’ because only JWs will survive ‘Armageddon’ to ‘live in ‘Jehovah’s’ New World Order here on earth – or in lost paradise won.’ (Everything about this “JW order” is pure masonic/Egyptology, Platonist dogma.  So, it is actually the “new [masonic] system.”)    

After that, all other people, and political and religious systems will supposedly be ‘annihilated.’ 

Satan and his demons will then be thrown into the abyss for a thousand years. 

Until then, devout JWS will still be “on trial,” to see if they would remain faithful to the organisation in thought and deed until  the whole world will be under control of the Organization! 

They all hope that, should they ‘pass this final test,’ (to remain unwavering in their allegiance to the society,) ‘Jehovah’ will ‘reward them with eternal life in paradise on earth.’ 

What a lot of unscriptural mumble-jumble!  They must just read Jesus’ eternal New Testament Covenant!  Without true faith in Him and following His Word, no one will see God!  (Jn.. 14:6!) 


Still, "The Time is at Hand," 1889 issue, page 101, prophesied, "The battle of the great day of God Almighty, (Rev. 16:14), which will end in A.D. 1914 with the complete overthrow of earth's present rule…” Of course, as already established in this study, this was one of their greatest lies!  The JW Watchtower then announced in 1972 that “It is [new] the prophet of Jehovah!”  So, Armageddon should have occurred in 1874, 1914, 1915, 1925, 1957, and in 1975!  But as we know, the evil world and all its political and religious systems, JWs included, continue to this day! 

Nevertheless, despite their continual failure to predict the ‘end of the world’ correctly, (their evil systems of the world, not the world itself as the real Bible teaches in 2 Peter 3:7,10-14 and throughout Scripture,) the masonic-Egyptologist Russellites “dreadfully fear this day of their own invention.” [Wikipedia.] Even the JW promises that they will not be annihilated with the ‘unbelievers,’ (non-Witnesses,) cannot quall their fears!  Because God promised in 1 Thessalonians 5:3-11 that He “assigned [true believers] not to wrath [in The Day of Jesus’ return,] but to salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,” one really needs to feel sorry for them.  Their Organization keeps them under incredible fear-power by making them believe that the “wrath of God that will be poured out upon wicked mankind during the Great Tribulation and at the Battle of Armageddon... The only way they will have a chance to survive God’s wrath, is to [allegedly] serve the organization diligently in the hope that ‘Jehovah’ will spare their lives when He pours out His judgement on all the evil systems of Satan; sparing only true Jehovah’s Witnesses.” 

However, the Real Wrath of God will actually be ‘poured out’ upon everyone who do not repent from ‘loving and practicing” the lies of Satan, and accept the truth of the real Bible, (Rev. 22:14-15!) 


The reality of eternal hell according to Jesus’ own Words 

Jehovah’s Witnesses deny the reality of eternal hell as eternal punishment for not believing in, and obey Jesus, the God, Savior, Lord, and Christ of the whole Bible.  As seen, JWs teach complete annihilation after death. They say only the 144,000 of the “ruling class” (Revelation 7:4-8, which clearly states these are Hebrews from the twelve tribes of Israel,) was allowed to go to heaven.  Punishment, except for the annihilation of bad witnesses and non-witnesses, does not exist. 

What is the condition of deceased JWs of the ‘slave class’?” someone asked.  Well, they recite Ecclesiastes 9:5 from their bible, ‘The New World Translation,’ “As for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.”  Allegedly, deceased JWs remain ‘unconscious” not dead until after ‘Armageddon’ when they will be ‘resurrected as spirits’ to live in the ‘restored paradise on earth.’  At death, those who are not in the organization are simply ‘annihilated.’  However, Jesus refuted this fallacy by proclaiming in Mark 9:42-48, “[Straight after death those without Christ] goes to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched, where their worm does not die…”  This does not mean there are ever-living worms in hell.  It means there is no decay in hell, as spirits can never ‘die’ or be ‘annihilated!’ 

In context, the truth of Scripture states the following in Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, “The dead knows nothing [about what is going on here on earth because they are either in heaven or hell…] Nevermore will they have a share in anything done under the sun.”  Context, context!  As soon as someone takes anything out of context, either from Scripture or anything else, they turn truth into a lie! 

The human spirits of the deceased (1 Thessalonians 5:23,) both those in heaven and those in hell, are clueless about life on earth, but they are very much aware of everything else. Jesus explained this clearly in Luke 16:19-31 in the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.  “So when the beggar died, the angels carried him to Abraham’s bosom, [the Hebrew allegory of heaven] and the rich man also died and [his physical body] was buried. And being in torment in [hell,] he cried…  ‘Have mercy on me… for I am in torment in this flame…’” 

Revelation 20:15, “Anyone not found written in the Book of Life, [heaven’s population register of true believing disciples in Jesus Christ,] was cast into the lake of fire.”  Revelation 21:8, “The cowardly, unbelieving… and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone…”

All those who did not obey the Holy Spirit’s leading in obeying Jesus’ Moral Law, (John 13:34,) will be judged by Jesus, either at death or at His return on the clouds, (Mt. 7:21-24.)  This has nothing to do with belonging to a church or society or any other religious institution.  Therefore, Jesus warned in Luke 25:46, “And these [disobedient ones who ignored My inward Moral Law,] will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous [all Jesus’ personally believing, sincere disciple-followers,] will go into eternal life.” 


Jehovah’s Witnesses deny that water baptism is a ‘saving sacrament’ but an open declaration of allegiance to ‘Jehovah’ – or actually, to the society.  Witnesses undergoing baptism are required to publicly confess that they are aligning themselves “with god's spirit-directed organization, [the Jehovah’s Witness establishment, which does not believe that the Holy Spirit is God but the mere impersonal ‘power of their god.’]  Thereby they submit themselves to its direction and judicial system. This is the strongest declaration they can make to ‘Jehovah’ and His teachings.”  [Wikipedia.] 

These teachings are undoubtedly from the society’s point of view and therefore, not truly Biblical.  Jesus commanded that Scriptural water baptism must be according to His own immersion in water – but it is only after His own teachings and not manmade substitutes were preached to make personal disciples for Him and not for any church, organization or society!  These sincerely believing disciples of the True God of the Bible, Who is The Lord Christ Jesus Himself, must then be “an open declaration” that they have died to sin to live eternally in and through Jesus Christ.  This baptism must then be in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, (Mt. 28:19-20; Rom. 6; Gal. 2:20-21.) 


As said, Jehovah’s Witnesses teach, “The Holy Spirit is not God but the power of God.”   However, from the first page in the Bible to the last, the Holy Spirit is revealed as God Himself; neither as a mere manifestation of God in the form of wind or fire as at the burning bush, etcetera, nor as fire or wind itself that people worship ‘gods,’ (Exodus 3:1-7.) 

It is not “What is the Holy Spirit?” as JWs ask, as that is blasphemy, but “Who Is the Holy Spirit?” 

The ‘power’ they and others refer to in this context, is usually “an electrical force,” which, either supernatural or natural, still remains a real but unseen creation of God. Just as the elements of air, wind, and fire, an electrical force is impersonal, without emotion and intelligence, and incapable of performing any kind of thoughtful task by itself.  That is why we cannot quench the work of wind, blaspheme against wind, or grieve the wind, and we cannot lie to the wind or to an electrical force.  But Scripture states that we can commit all these sins against the Holy Spirit because He is God, (Acts. 13:2-3; Eph. 4:30; Jn. 14: 26; 16:7-14; Rom. 8:14-16; Lu. 12:10; Acts 5:3; 1 Cor. 12:4-11.) 

We can be certain that the Holy Spirit is God Himself, because all through Scripture, when He spoke to people, it was God Himself speaking to them.  As the Holy Spirit is the Living God Himself, the Spirit can choose disciples and send them out His workers.  The Holy Spirit helps His disciples, convinces all of humanity of His Scriptural Truth, and convicts them of their lost spiritual condition without a saving knowledge of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  As God Himself, the Holy Spirit adopts sincere believers in Christ as His spiritual children. He builds the believing body of Christ; searches all things, leads His disciples into all truth, gives them spiritual gifts; testifies to their salvation, and comforts them in trials and tribulation, (1 Cor. 2:10; 12:11; Acts 20:28; Jn. 14:26! 16:13.)
