Jehovah's Witness: A History of Deception
"And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will." 2 Timothy 2:26
Ok, so let's start with the definition of what a Jehovah's Witness is:
•Someone who accepts the Watchtower Society as God's spirit-directed prophet and theocratic organization upon the earth.
•A zealous people who blindly proclaim an ever changing future catastrophe
Unlike the bible which never changes, the doctrine of the Jehovah's Witness has changed markedly over time as the things that they have predicted to come true...haven't. In 1920, they published a book called "Millions Now Living Will Never Die". Well, nearly all of those people are now dead. Do they admit their false prophecy? Of course not. Instead, they simply republish the book with the title of "Millions Now Dead Will Live Again. (Watchtower, May 1, 1990). This is what is known in the used car business as a cover up. Or a lie. Take your pick.

How the Jehovah's Witness got started
Jehovah's Witnesses trace their origins to the nineteenth century Adventist movement in America. That movement began with William Miller, a Baptist lay preacher who, in the year 1816, began proclaiming that Christ would return in 1843. His predictions of the Second Coming or Second Advent captured the imagination of thousands in Baptist and other mainline churches. Perhaps as many as 50,000 followers put their trust in Miller's chronological calculations and prepared to welcome the Lord, while, as the appointed time approached, others watched nervously from a distance. Recalculations moved the promised second advent from March, 1843 to March, 1844, and then to October of that year. Alas, that date too passed uneventfully.
False teachings of the Jehovah's Witness:
On the nature of God. They deny the triune nature of God and teaches that such a belief is inspired by Satan and teaches that Jehovah, the name of the one true God, corresponds only to God the Father. JWs also deny that Jesus is God (see next point). They deny the Holy Spirit is a person, and instead teach he is merely God's active force, similar to electricity.
[Note: Scripture has been added to enhance this article.
1 John 5:7 says, "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." This clearly teaches the doctrine of the Trinity.]
On the deity of Jesus Christ The JW's [teach] that Jesus is a created being who existed as Michael the archangel before being born as a perfect man. JWs believe that after Jesus was buried, God disposed of his physical body. He was raised a spiritual creature and "materialized" to make himself visible. Now in heaven he is once again known as Michael the archangel.
[John 1:1-3 teaches that Jesus Christ, the WORD, is God and that Jesus Christ created everything.
Acts 13:35-37 teaches that Jesus Christ (the Holy One) never saw corruption (i.e. His body physically rose from the dread and did not decay.)]
On salvation. The JW's teach that only an elite group of Witnesses, known as "the 144,000," or the "anointed ones" are presently credited with Christ's righteousness. Only the 144,000 are born again and expect to reign with Christ in heaven. For the vast majority of remaining JWs, known as the "other sheep" or the "great crowd," the atoning sacrifice of Christ only provides a chance at eternal life on earth. This is interesting because in the bible, the 144,000 are all males, all Jewish, and all from the nation of Israel. This is very much in contrast to the JW teaching on the 144,000.
[Revelation 7:4-12 teaches that there are 144,000 Jewish witnesses from all the tribes of Israel. Revelation 6:9-11 shows how there are many human people in Heaven, around the altar, worshiping God before the 144,000 Jews come on the scene.]
On Hell and eternal punishment. Jehovah's Witness denies eternal punishment and teaches that the soul cannot exist apart from the body. JWs believe that death ends all conscious existence. Hell refers to the grave and those who are ultimately judged by God will be annihilated and simply cease to exist.
[Revelation 14:9-11 and Mark 9:43-48 teaches that existence in Hell is eternal and that souls do not cease to exist.
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.]
On the bible. Jehovah's Witness teaches that the Bible can only be interpreted by the Watchtower Society and no individual can learn the truth apart from them. source - Believers Net
The dangers of false prophets
The Bible warns us that many false prophets will come claiming to speak for God (Matthew 7:15; 1John 4: 1). Thankfully, it also provides a practical test for identifying false prophets. In Deuteronomy 18:21-22 we are told that anyone who claims to speak as a prophet of God and predicts something that does not come true is a false prophet. "And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him."(KJV) According to the Bible, one false prophecy makes the speaker a false prophet. By this test the Watchtower Society's prophecies concerning 1914, 1915, 1918, 1920, 1925 and 1975 prove beyond a doubt it is a false prophet and that we should turn away from this group's deceptive doctrines. source - Believers Net
On the left side column, we give a partial list of the many dozens of false prophecies made by the Jehovah's Witness over that past 125 years. And the funny thing is that, even though every single prophecy they have made has been a false one, it has never stopped them from continuing to publish them.
Can YOU trust an organization with a 100% FAILURE rate?
The Pyramidal Memorial for the Watchtower Society ("Jehovah's Witnesses") in Ross Township, PA contains a Masonic symbol.
The pyramidal memorial for the Watchtower Society has the same Cross and Crown symbol found in Freemasonry.
The Cross and Crown symbol is not found in true Christianity. It is borrowed from the Freemasons. The Cross and Crown symbol can be found in Masonic Temples.
The Cross and Crown symbol is from the Order of the Knights Templar and it has nothing to do with true Christianity and has everything to do with the god of Freemasonry, Lucifer. (See Below...)
THE TRUTH ABOUT MASONRY
Albert Pike, a 33rd degree mason, revealed who the true god of Freemasonry really was...Lucifer.
"The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine. . . . Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay [God the Creator] is also God. [...] the true and pure philosophic [or esoteric] religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay [God the Creator] ; but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of darkness and evil." Albert Pike (quoted by A.C. De La Rive in La Femme et l'enfant dans la Franc-Maconnerie Universelle, p. 588; Lady Queenborough, Occult Theocracy pp. 220-221.)
Albert Pike said Lucifer was the "God of Light". The Bible clearly teaches that Lucifer (Satan) is a being who God created, who rebelled against God.
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
Satan wants to be worshiped as God. Satan said, “I will be like the most High.” But, Satan will not succeed. Verse 15 tells what will happen to the devil. God, the true God of Light (see James 1:17 ) is against the rebellious, fallen angel, Lucifer, who is fighting God's angels (Revelation 12).
Regarding what Albert Pike said about his "God", Isaiah 5 speaks clearly...
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
The Freemasons twist God's Holy Word as do the "Jehovah's Witnesses" (Watchtower), the Mormons, the Catholics, and other false Christian religions.
The prophet Jeremiah from the Bible said this about false prophets and false teachers...
36 And the burden of the Lord shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the Lord of hosts our God.
"Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity -- an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect ... it is necessary to establish the existence of these two separate and yet interdependent orders, the one visible and the other invisible. The visible society is a splendid camaraderie of 'free and accepted' men enjoined to devote themselves to ethical, educational, fraternal, patriotic, and humanitarian concerns. The invisible society is a secret and most August fraternity whose members are dedicated to the service of a mysteriousarcannum arcandrum." [Manly P. Hall, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy, p. 433]
