Only one system of Watchtower twisting can be detected, if at all: Anything that serves to lead Jesus ad absurdum as Savior is okay and welcome. The Watchtower Society has no concept of turning the Bible to the left with sense and understanding. It uses the watering can principle, suggesting in this way that it is honestly seeking Bible knowledge. For Jehovah's Witness can empathize with how the Governing Body "struggles for truth. But he cannot realize that the Governing Body is consciously pursuing only one goal: The elimination of Salvation through Jesus.
Around this core, the Watchtower Society systematically but without concept builds a building of lies, which is basically nothing more than a layer of clay clapped by hand to the wall – smeared on the wall by blunderers to cover the hole in the wall of their heresy. The governing body and its subordinates enjoy it to the full to smear themselves with dirt all over. That's their external sign that they've put a lot of effort into it.
You have had the experience that people like to be cheated. So they have a huge gain in pleasure in kneading the core of their teaching more and more mudflats, so that both the viewer from outside and Jehovah's Witness himself no longer has an overview. Even the "staff" themselves only have a good feeling and " a good job" when they themselves no longer have any perspective. So Satan makes sure that nobody recognizes his tricks.
After now one year of fiercest discussion between a Christian and a (very knowledgeable) Jehovah's Witness, the following situation remains:
This situation is highly unsatisfactory, since it is clear not only that Jehovah's Witness refuses to think freely, but also that she silences rigorously the inner voice that is her conscience. The security situation suggested by the Watchtower Society is so tempting that this witness, despite her high intelligence and recognizable honesty, persists in her permanent self-deception. This psychological high performance of permanent self-deception is to be described in the following.
The Watchtower Society's assertion that Jesus is only an angel is quickly and clearly refuted. Jesus says that where two or three are gathered in his name, he is among them. With this he has proved to even the most unbeliever that he is God, because apart from God, no being can be in two or more places at the same time.
The audacity of Satan in the Watchtower Society actually goes so far that this argument is to be refuted by God himself claiming that he can also only stay in one place! (Which does not even suggest why Jesus should only be an angel. For even if both should not be omnipresent, this would not be an indication that Jesus is not God.)
The Watchtower denies the concept of God of all mankind, which includes his omnipresence, what all men know and concede to God if he exists for them, in order to achieve his goal of rendering Jesus ineffective as salvation. And this "argumentation" itself is also again a lie of first choice: For with the consideration that God is not omnipresent, the agreement between Jesus and God would only be confirmed if Jesus himself were also bound to a place. But one automatically reads this text as if it were proving with God's one-place characteristic that Jesus could not be God. Here Satan proves the lie by lying, whereby the lie of proof does not refer with a single point to the lie to be proved. Satanic!
And the madness is: Jehovah's Witnesses believe that! They unbelieve and assume that God, who created everything, is not able to be in two or more places at the same time. How sick and seduced must a human spirit be to accept such nonsense as truth? How in love must one be with the special, the elitist, the high-browed of the Watchtower Society to follow such an untruth obvious to all men and angels? How much must one be used to the embarrassing in order to give this cramped interpretation of the Bible the appearance of truth?
Jehovah's Witness stubbornly insists that everything that the Governing Body, the oh so understanding slave, says is correct. Jehovah's Witness is bound psychologically not only by the social situation in which she finds herself, but also by her very own fear of passing away in Armageddon. She is spiritually and spiritually bound and cannot realize that Satan is her master.
Michael is called "the archangel" in the Bible (Judas 9). "Archangel" means "supreme angel". It is interesting that Michael is called the Archangel. From this it can be concluded that there is only one such angel. In fact, the word "archangel" appears in the Bible only in the singular, never in the plural. Moreover, Jesus is associated with the office of archangel. For in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 it says of the risen Lord Jesus Christ: "The Lord Himself shall come down from heaven with a commanding cry, with the voice of an archangel."
If there were really only one Archangel, then it wouldn't be here: with the voice one Archangel! So the Watchtower presents obvious nonsense as truth. [RH]
As described here, Jesus calls with the voice of an archangel. This suggests that Jesus himself is the Archangel Michael.
What can be concluded is very diverse. Satan uses this phrase again and again in the Watchtower so that he does not get the impression that he himself thinks it is the truth. [RH]
The Bible says: "Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought" (Revelation 12:7). So Michael is the leader of an army of faithful angels. Jesus is also described in Revelation as the leader of an army of faithful angels (Revelation 19:14-16). And the apostle Paul explicitly speaks of the "Lord Jesus" and "his mighty angels" (2 Thessalonians 1:7). So the Bible mentions both Michael and "his angels" and Jesus and "his angels" (Matthew 13:41; 16:27; 24:31; 1 Peter 3:22). Since there are no references in the Word of God to two heavenly armies of faithful angels – one led by Michael and one led by Jesus – one may conclude that Michael is none other than Jesus Christ in his heavenly position.
One may conclude with Satan. – What a beautiful feeling to have followed the subjective impression of the Governing Body! With the diversification of mentions that might fit Jesus according to "our conclusions," Satan opens the door in the Watchtower to later call Jesus the Angel of the Abyss. To this end, the Watchtower actually uses as evidence something that does not exist, namely the non-existent reference to two armies. This demonstration of non-existence is a constantly new means used by the Watchtower to present obvious falsehood as true. [RH]
What does the Bible say?
Is God omnipresent?
GOD is aptly described as omnipotent and omniscient. To emphasize his greatness even more, some also describe him as omnipresent. They believe that God is literally everywhere and in everything. The first two qualities are also clearly attributed to him in the Bible (Genesis 17:1; Hebrews 4:13; Revelation 11:17). God's power is indeed boundless, and he is omniscient because nothing can be hidden from him. But is he really omnipresent? Is he present everywhere at the same time, or is he a person with a permanent abode?
As if that would give an indication of whether God can be in several places at the same time or not! [RH]
Where is God?
Several verses in the Bible speak of "the heavens" as the "permanent abode" of God (1 Kings 8:39, 43, 49; 2 Chronica 6:33, 39). How great Jehovah God is, however, is described at one point with the following words: "But will God really dwell with the people on earth? Behold! The heavens themselves, even the heavens of the heavens, cannot grasp you!" (2 Chronica 6:18).
So God must also be outside the heavens! Up to this point Satan has not proved that God is not omnipresent. Here Satan, in his watchtower-like sponginess, only raises questions that are pulled up by his hair and contribute to the topic of zero information. They even bear witness to the opposite of what the Watchtower claims. Thus Satan daily accustoms Jehovah's Witnesses to turning off their own brains. [RH]
The Bible says, "God is a spirit" (John 4:24). Accordingly, he is in a spiritual realm that does not belong to the material universe.
This is a completely bottomless assumption! [RH]
That the Bible calls the abode of God "heaven",
that are not enough to catch him [RH]
is intended to convey how sublime his whereabouts are compared to the material environment in which we live.
This sublimity of the dwelling place of God, drawn near by the hair, says nothing either! It only denies once more that the Bible is right when it says that we believers are the place where God dwells. [RH]
So the Bible basically teaches that God's abode – although clearly separated from the material universe – is in a very specific place (Job 2:1, 2).
Even if God were to live in a garden shed, it would not be meaningful about his ability to be in two or more places at the same time. [RH]
God is a person
Jesus spoke of Jehovah's abode when he said to his disciples, "There are many dwellings in my father's house. ... I go to prepare a place for you (John 14:2). Where did Jesus go? He finally "went into heaven itself to ... to appear before the person of God for us (Hebrews 9:24). From these verses we learn two important facts about Jehovah God: First, he has a concrete abode, and second, he is not simply an indefinable, ubiquitous force, but a person.
With which Satan has talked himself out about everything possible, but not about God's ability to be in several places at the same time. [RH]
Therefore Jesus taught his followers to pray: "Our Father in heaven" to address his prayers to a person – Jehovah – who is in one place – the spiritual heaven (Matthew 6:9; 12:50). Servants of God had been taught to pray like this for over 1500 years. The oldest scriptures inspired by God contained the following prayer: "Look down from your holy abode, the heavens, and bless your people" (Genesis 5:26:15).
Satan thus said much about dwellings, places and prayers, but nothing about the quality of God to be omnipresent. [RH]
God's Holy Spirit reaches everywhere
The Bible always says that God has a permanent abode. The Holy Spirit, on the other hand, is often said to reach everywhere. Psalmist David once asked, "Where can I go before your Spirit, and where can I depart before your face?" (Psalm 139:7).
Oh! Now suddenly the face is everywhere? Oh! That no longer applies, because Satan no longer talks about God, but only about the Holy Spirit, who, by the way, is only one thing for him. [RH]
Some have erroneously concluded from such statements that God is omnipresent. If, however, one takes into account in this and other texts the
context, it becomes clear that Jehovah's Holy Spirit – his power or power in action – can emanate from his permanent abode and reach any place in the material universe.
So Satan said, "God, you stay nice at home and your spirit goes on wanderings. What a mockery of basic knowledge. For Satan, you twister, you serpent! – where God is, there is also his spirit. You destroyer, Satan, have twisted the senses of so many people that they can no longer recognize the smallest thing. [RH]
As a father stretches out his hand to his children to comfort and help them, Jehovah can "stretch out" his Holy Spirit like a helping hand into every part of the spiritual realm and the material universe to do what he has set out to do.
This is Satan's balancing act in order not to let the biblical statement appear as a disruptive factor that Jesus, as the omnipresent God, is with those who gather in his name. [RH]
So the psalmist could say, "If I take the wings of the dawn, so that I may dwell in the farthest sea: Even there your own hand would guide me, and your right hand would hold me (Psalm 139:9, 10).
The ease with which Satan makes use of the Word of God is always quite astonishing. [RH]
You can be a friend of God
Jehovah God humbly and lovingly allows himself and his dwelling place to be described in terms that are comprehensible to us humans and are most likely to do justice to his form of existence.
What a blasphemy to attribute a certain form of existence to God! [RH]
Not least because of this "he inclines down to look at heaven and earth" (Psalm 113:6). The whole dimension of God's nature, however, far exceeds our imagination.
Oh! Now suddenly! But according to Satan's instructions it can be permanently concluded and accepted. – Of course always only what the faithful slave of Satan has "recognized". [RH]
Jehovah is simply too great and too wonderful to be comprehensively described in human terms. Therefore, it is simply impossible for people to fully understand the spiritual dimension of what the Bible describes as God's heavenly abode in a concrete place (Psalm 139:6).
But we can conclude from everything we do not understand that God is not omnipresent! This is Satan's scam. [RH]
Nevertheless, it gives us great courage to know something about Jehovah's true nature – to understand that he is not an indefinable, impersonal force permeating everything in the universe, but a person with a fixed abode and a personality marked by love and tender affection. For this knowledge is the key to the greatest chance a man can ever get: to become a personal friend of the Almighty Universal Sovereign and to remain his friend for life (James 4:8).
Connecting the omnipresence of God with "indefinable, impersonal power" is the Satanic trick that the Watchtower Society uses here. It is one of the devil's most repugnant deceits. This Satan will one day be the true accuser and he will command Jehovah's Witnesses to turn this side, then that side. And he will prove to the Jehovah's Witnesses, through the Watchtower texts, that with a little attention and backbone these lies should not have been swallowed. [RH]
Since Jesus of Pentecost 33 A.D. would impart the Holy Spirit to his disciples, he could say: "Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in their midst".
Here once again the presence of Christ is reduced to the disciples of that time. And at the same time Jesus is portrayed as far away. Satan has only one interest. He wants to portray the man Jesus as an ineffective historical figure. Even if Jesus exists, then he exists far away from God in his sublime home. Thus the absence of Jesus is proclaimed and the Watchtower Society is founded as a substitute mediator between God and man. Because every person who turns to Jesus is saved, Satan tries to prevent as many people as possible from coming into contact with Jesus. Some through atheistic arrogance, others through scientific esteem, and the Jehovah's Witnesses through arrogant and fearful adherence to the satanic teachings of the Watchtower Society. [RH]
Satan's achievement is to get people to harm themselves. He will be the true accuser in judgment and no man and no angel will be able to prove an act of disgrace to himself. In his office he is the accuser who brings destruction to God through the distorted right. His work is based on the seduction of self-deception. No one in the world is dependent on following him. Especially not since it is known that Jesus immediately breaks the chains of Satan when he is asked to do so.
But the spider webs of the Watchtower Society are so finely spun and have such a flexible evasive function that the people who hang on to them can usually only escape from this terrible conflict by suicide. Therefore, it is very important that true Christians pray for the seduced of the Watchtower Society and resist them at every opportunity. They cannot lead anyone to Jesus from this group of the spiritually destroyed. Only Jesus himself can do that. Let us ask him for it!
