Jehovah's Witnesses claim that Jesus Christ is another God. An angel created by Jehovah God, whom he immediately adopted as a son. The Watchtower Jesus actually resides as the second god in the Watchtower religion, although it is written in the commandments: Thou shalt have no other gods beside me. How can a religion cheekily ignore the Bible and then claim to be Christian? The Jehovah's Witnesses demonstrate this and often do not even know that they are addicted to the basic lie of life.
In stark contrast to this fact of the Watchtower religion, there is a conspicuous parallel passage in the Bible which points out once again separately that Jesus Christ is God and whose common core I discovered only recently. It is the much invoked Isaiah passage that serves Jehovah's Witnesses to justify their names:
Isaiah 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen, that ye may know, and believe me, and see, that I am it; before me there is no God formed, and after me there shall be none.
Several statements of Jesus refer to this statement as to who God is. The hardest, because Jesus throws them into the round without any explanation but with clear consequences, is:
John 8:24 Therefore I have told you that ye shall die in your sins; for if ye believe not, that I am it, ye shall die in your sins.
This lapidary that I am it is strangely not even explained in the beginning by Jesus. The Jews understand him immediately and accuse him of having made himself equal to God. This unexplained, not further explained and not suggestively bemerkunged that I am it has been astonishing me for more than a year.
The greatest feeling I have with these words is this complete lack of necessity for Jesus to explain himself to anyone. Fascinating! There goes a man across the earth who doesn't need or want an explanation in the central words about himself. And most people, also and especially the Satanists, understand him immediately!
As soon as the implications of these absolutely simple words become clear to you, you can only half powerlessly acknowledge the glory of the Lord and enjoy it in faith. It is insanely clear and simple what the Bible says and how Jesus speaks in the shortest and most effective appearance of a man in this world. He simply makes things clear and does not justify them.
Here now the other passages which put Isaiah 43,10 in the right light for the anger of the Watchtower Society:
John 8:28 That is why Jesus spoke to them: When you have exalted the Son of Man, you will know, that I am it; and I do nothing of myself, but as my Father taught me, so I speak.
John 13:19 Now I'll tell you before it happens, so you'll believe when it happens, that I am it.
The only thing that cannot be explained in this universe and beyond is God. It is God's very own way to be recognizable to everything and everyone. In Isaiah 43 God presents this quite casually, almost incidentally, and Jesus Christ presents it in the Gospel of John in the same relaxed and senseless way. This Jesus must have been an insanely intelligent liar in order to be so perfect and at the same time so inconspicuous even in these little things equal to God. The fascination that comes from these little things does not let you go.
The only catch is whether you believe him without these insights or not.
