The Kind of Witnesses the Jehovah’s Witnesses Are

A witness, in the dictionary, is defined as:

to see, hear, or know by personal presence and perception

This definition jives with the biblical definition of a witness.

(Act 10:38-41)

“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly; Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.”

The Bible separates the office of the apostles to other divine gifts such as evangelists, teachers, prophets, etc — as recorded in the book of Ephesians 4:11-12.

“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:”

Although a prophet preaches and a teacher preaches also, they can not be both classified as apostles who also preach the same thing that they are preaching. An apostle must be an eyewitness to the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ.

(Acts 1:21-22)

“Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.”

What the apostle Matthew have written was the same thing that was written by Luke the evangelist; but he was never called in the Bible as an apostle because he was not an eyewitness to the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, but have only heard and known what happened during the Lord’s ministry from the eyewitnesses themselves.

(Luke 1:1-3) “Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,

Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus…”

For Luke to say that he is a witness will be a misnomer — disregarding a vital truth in the bible. This is the case of the Jehovah’s witnesses.

Their claim and their teachings that they are witnesses for Jehovah do not only constitute misnomer, but a deceit, fallacy or hoax. They call themselves witnesses because they believe that they are witnessing for the truth of Jehovah — their ‘god’, apparently, they are using claims and verses that prove that they are ignorant of the thing they are claiming to be witnesses of. This is the verse they are using:

(Isa. 43:10) “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.”

In the verse, the Lord speaks. That is the Lord God: the Lord God that was ‘formed’.

It is a fundamental knowledge that can be learned from the pages of the entire bible that the Lord God Almighty was not ‘formed’ by anybody.

(Psa. 90:2) “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.”

In this verse, he is the one that forms or causes the existence of everything. The Hebrew word used “yaw-tsar”, meaning “to mold into a form” (especially as a potter). And the Lord God Almighty is the potter.

(Rom. 9:20-21) “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?”

He was not formed. He existed from eternity. No human mind can comprehend eternity!

The Lord God, in Isaiah 43:10 was formed. There was no God formed before Him; neither shall there be after Him. He is the One talking to the prophetic witnesses whom he had chosen. Let us requote 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 understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.”

The prophecy speaks of two distinct entities: The speaker, called the Lord or the God that was formed and His witnesses whom He had chosen. This verse can not specifically fit anybody except the person of Jesus Christ and His apostles. Jesus Christ is God (John 1:1-3)

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God. The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made through him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

He was formed or have caused by God to exist in His very bosom.

(John 1:18 ) “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”

It was God the Father Almighty who brought him forth or has begotten Him.

(Heb 5:5) “So also Christ glorified not himself to be made a high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee.”

Jesus Christ is the personification of the Wisdom of God.

(1 Cor. 1:24) “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.”

It was this Wisdom who has sent the prophets and the apostles.

(Luke 11:49) “Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:”

This is the same wisdom that speaks in the book of Proverbs 8:22-31 and said:

“The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.”

Therefore, the witnesses being mentioned in Isaiah 43:10 are not the Jehovah’s Witnesses, but the Apostles; and the God to whom they are witnesses to is the Lord Jesus Christ — the God that was ‘formed’.

In the book of Acts 10:38-41

“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly; Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.”

It is very clear in the preceding verses that the witnesses chosen by God and Jesus Christ are the Apostles, to whom God revealed the person of His Son who ate and drank with them after He was resurrected from the dead; and the witnessing of the Apostles extend to the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts 1:8

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. “

The Apostles are able and true witnesses.

Therefore, what kind of witnesses are the Jehovah’s Witnesses?

Sincerely in Christ,

Brother Eli Soriano

  1. Jehovah’s witnesses are deceitful witnesses because they speak lies. How can they be the true witnesses if they did not even ate and drank with Christ? True witnesses are those apostles who ate and drank with Christ as Bro. Eli cited in Acts. 10:38-41. We should believe the true witnesses like the apostles becuase they can deliver souls but if we will believe false witnesses like the jehova’s witnesses, they will lead us to damnation (Proverbs 14:25). I believe bro. Eli’s teachings because the basis of his teaching is from the true witnesses, the apostles. Therefore his teaching is from Christ because it’s from the apostles,the true witnesses, and we should believe in it for us to be saved.

      • Witnesses of God Jehovah are the true witnesses(Isaiah 43:10-12), Jesus Christ also a faithful witness(Rev 1:5) and Apostle John was also a witness of God (John 1:6-7)…The only organization uses the name of God is JW’s… I don’t know why others don’t use the name of Jehovah, while they are using many bible characters starts with letter J…The MCGI don’t use the name Jehovah, they are only using the YHWH tetragrammaton..English language are not yet used in Bible times, so Jesus name was also not known to early Christians and Jews.

  2. Jehovah’s Witnesses are scary.

    I find the 2 of their main doctrines kind of scary and deadly.
    1. No Blood transfusion is allowed
    RESULT: a lot of their members die on refusing
    blood transfusion during emergency or medical operations (even children)

    2. All sins will be forgiven by death
    (they are using Romans 6:7 & 6:23)
    RESULT: a quite high rate of suicides among their members.

    Thank you Brother Eli for this very biblical analysis about the Jehovah’s Witnesses

  3. Jehovah is a fictitious name of GOD.

    They find the 4-letter-word (Tetragramaton) insufficient. So they changed Y to J, then W to V. Not yet satisfied, they added 3 more vowels to it!

    JW are “true” witnesses to a fictitious god.

    A god that loathes life-giving blood transfusion and thinks that renovating the earth is way cheaper than building a new heaven and a new earth. But for now, they have to sell gazillion books and other stuffs to earn money for that “earthly renovation project”.

    And that’s the whole idea of “SAVING”. 😀

    • My friend my name is Joshua, can you please direct me to understand how my name is translated as well…. I know in my spelling there are vowels entered into my name and if Jesus is also from Hebrew there are vowels added as well. I would not call the spelling Jehovah a misrepresentation of his name actually i know that if my name is said by a person from Mexico they will say yoshua similarly the sound of a p and f are mispronounced by someone raised speaking Tagalog. As someone raised a Jehovah’s witness… i thought the wages of sin is death, and as atonement for Adams sin according to Gods law it was Jesus sacrifice that atoned for the sins of Adam and his decedents. I am also cautious of anything i say of any religion as a whole since religion is guided by man who can not direct his own step. I always remember to remain patient and humble when discussing religion and remember that it is God that will judge me. Also it should be know the God’s name is not GOD or LORD if we are to be correct in translation or transliteration. Please forgive me if I have offended anyone and remember that I am non-practicing, and not baptized even just a believer of the bible and a sinner as well.

      • hello my friend. thanks for the comment here, we appreciate it. but we cannot ignore the fact that u have been mislead. Thank you for taking the time to read this blog, and for that we are happy that we can share with you this knowledge in the bible.
        In regards to your belief that religion is directed by man and that u are a believer of the bible, the bible has the answers for you. in II Cor. 6:19-20 “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; AND HATH COMMITED UNTO US THE WORD OF RECONCILIATION. NOW THEN THAT WE ARE AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST, AS THOUGH GOD BESEECH YOU BY US: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. “ God has used mediums, at sundry times, to deliver the gospel to us. He sends prophets on his behalf. In Heb 1:1-2 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the world.” The verse clearly says about His sending His Son and His prophets in speaking the gospel. One example of that is in Romans 16:22 “I Tertius, who wrote this epistle, salute you in the Lord.” Isa. 30:8 “Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come forever and ever.”
        The question is who are these prophets? Are they of God or just phonies? The bible answers in John 3:34 ” FOR HE WHOM GOD HATH SENT SPEAKETH THE WORDS OF GOD, FOR GOD GIVETH NOT THE SPIRIT BY MEASURE UNTO HIM”. The prophet of God speaks the words of GOD, but there are so many who claim that they are the ones sent by God to do His bidding… we should find out and investigate further as we know that anybody can claim that they are sent by God. In John 7:17-18 ” if any man will do His will, HE SHALL KNOW OF THE DOCTRINE, WHETHER IT BE OF GOD OR WHETHER I SPEAK OF MYSELF. HE THAT SPEAKETH OF HIMSELF SEEKETH HIS OWN GLORY: BUT HE THAT SEEKETH HIS GLORY THAT SENT HIM, THE SAME IS TRUE, AND NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN HIM”. We can determine if a speaker is a man sent by God, thru his teachings; whether his teachings are from God or not. In II Peter 1:21 “ For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” Therefore we can conclude on this matter that the religion is not directed by man but by Jesus Christ Himself. There is the true religion in the bible and that is the one Whom Jesus Christ headed. Apostle James speaks of pure religion, in James 1:27 “ Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction and to keep himself unspotted from the world”.
        About the name Jehova’s Witnesses, Bro. Eli has discussed this so many times. He has proven to us that Jehova is not the name of God.
        “While inclining to view the pronunciation “Yah-weh” as the more correct way, we have retained the form “Jehovah” because of people’s familiarity with it since the 14th century.” [New World Bible Translation Committee, Feb. 9, 1950, New York, N.Y.]
        When did the word “Jehovah” appear? It appeared only recently. Since the 14th century, they have been using Jehovah rather than Yahweh. Why? Because they say that Jehovah is more familiar. Who gave that name? They did. They are admitting that. They have replaced the word “Lord” in the Old Testament with Jehovah. That is wrong. You will give God His name when all in heaven and earth get their names from Him?
        “Do you know God?” If you know God, then what is His name? The name they introduce is Jehovah. They do not even know the God whom they claim they know. Why? They are the ones who gave the name; the name Jehovah did not come from God. Imagine, you will give God His name? Who are we to do that? You are human, He is God, and you will give His name? It is very awkward for us to give God a name. That cannot be. In the Bible, Saint Paul said – “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named
        I encourage you to continue reading this blog for u will come across with knowledge about everything in the bible and hoping u may be enlightened through this, with God’s help
        Concerned Christians

  4. jehovah’s witness are truly misguided by the holy scriptures, they do not understand what they are reading. but how they can understand? they do not have the true messager of our Lord.

    • you cant understant the words of god that s why u broke the jehovahs witness .if u want to know the thruth just viset our kingdom hall.and if u want to debate try me.just look the mathew 24:45-46 jehovahs witnesses is the only true.who abundant espiritual food.

      • Deu 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
        What about all your published Failed! False Prophesies?! You better take in consideration in knowing and research on the history of your organization and not to close your heart, but rather seek and ask!

      • a debate? try Bro Eli. if you want some beatings of the true Word Of God

        You know i didnt even see one of that name jehovah in the said verse….but i only know that church of God is truly in the bible and it has so many verse to that can be proved that founded by Jesus christ it has the word of God not in non base name jehovah ..and it was in

        1Ti 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
        1Ti 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
        Act 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

        and many more…that name jehovah was a false name created by a false man not Jesus christ….

  5. Not only do the Jehovah’s witnesses claim that they are witnesses. The mormons claim that they have living Apostles and are also witnesses.

  6. What could we expect from Bro Eli Soriano? This man always says the TRUTH, he opened eyes and hearts of so many people…only numb people won’t accept what he is saying, actually he’s just reading what is written in the bible and let people know what it is all about….

    So for Jehovah’s members I can’t even call you witnesses coz it’s not true…why don’t you try open your eyes and ask Bro Eli Soriano questions regarding faith and your false beliefs….

  7. Jehova per se is not biblical because it is not the name of God. Moreso if you call it Jehova’s Witnesses. Who are they witnessing to?

    Another weird doctrine exposed by the most sensible preacher of our time – Bro.Eli Soriano!

  8. Thanks be to God, i’ve seen the light from the teaching of God through Bro. Eli.. I just hope that Jehovah’s witnesses open their eyes to the truth, and do not cling to their pride or family’s affair to that religion, which repeatedly claims the “end of the world” many times..

    May God help you and be with you in understanding the truth

  9. nice design! good to see that bro eli has a new blog

    i don’t know even know where they got jehovah as their god. what they only witness is all lies of their pastors


  11. The JW’s have no link with the Lord Jesus Christ at all so I must conclude that they are false witnesses. Why do I say this? They do not follow the tenets of Christ and they refuse to acknowledge His true Deity. JW’s, perhaps you should start witnessing for the true God, not for a fictitious one.

  12. Carls Teng, UNTV reporter, it’s time to get out in Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    be a Freelancer like me (if you cant accept one Bro. Eli’s teachings) or an ADD member if you can bear to be called “manang” “hilot” witch” (if you believe 100% on Bro. Eli’s teaching)

    It’s better to become a Freelancer than to be a devoted to a false faith.

    follow my steps, I’m a Catholic but inside Freelancer. (Cos I cant accept for a while 1 of Bro. Eli’s teaching and 1 of his attitudes)

    God bless.

    P.S. This letter is not for Carls Teng, to all UNTV employees who are JW members and to all forumers of member of JW.

    • Nonsense Advise…that is not teachings of bro. eli… the teachings of God that given to bro eli to teach it to all fellowmen…bro eli is only a messenger of God…to god be the glory
      Ecc 6:12
      For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?

  13. To God be the glory…another wisdom from the most sensitive preacher that was given by God in our time to save many souls…What i can only hope for the Jehovah’s members is to open their minds.Clearly how can they called themselves as witness when they were just born in our time?But I think there is nothing to argue of their being a witness to their jehovah,because their jehovah is not the God Almighty in whatsoever angle you will look at.

  14. They are BLIND eyewitnesses of our Lord Jesus Christ.. What they really witness is the wisdom of the devil. “Jehovah” is not the real name of God therefore THEY WITNESS A FALSE GOD NAMED JEHOVAH!

    Isaiah 43:10 says, “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen:…”
    the LORD’s witness are the true apostles.
    the JEHOVAH’s witness are the false apostles.

    how blind they are… they should have “seen” these if they really a witness…

    Thank God there’s Bro. Eli to “show” us these heavenly things.. ^_^
    To God be the Glory !!

  15. Bro. Eli we missed you a lot!!! We hope and pray that God will give you and bro. Daniel longer life to be His intruments in crashing wrong doctrines of Satan’s ministers!!!

  16. Once you speak about the glory of God, then you are a witness.

    you speak of what you feel and understand.

    as the promise, a comforter will guide and teach you and it will be in you.

    They are people on that time of Christ see him and witness him but in physical matter only.

    the real witness is the witness in spirit because it is the spirit that quickeneth.

  17. Thanks be to God!

    Nothing to argue in all aspects Jehovah witnesses are truely in wrong faith and beliefs.

    Firstly, as define by the dictionary
    WITNESS = to see, hear, or know by PERSONAL PRESENCE and PERCEPTION

    And they called themselves as witnesses?
    To him they witness to?
    (Isa. 43:10) “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.”

    As they Qoute ISA 43:10 and their basis for their belief…

    In this verse indeed the Bible mention WITNES
    BUT the Bible NEVER mention to those who WITNESSED called themselves as JEHOVAH’S Witnesses.

    Secondly,as mention in the Book of Acts
    (Act 10:38-41)

    “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. AND WE ARE WITNESSES OF ALL THINGS WHICH HE DID BOTH IN THE LAND OF THE JEWS, AND IN Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly; Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who DID EAT and DRINK WITH HIM after he rose from the dead.”

    Those who were with Christ are the TRUE Witnesses.

    (John 1:18 ) “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”

    How can they claim that they are Witnesses of God?from this verses..Either of the FATHER Almigthy nor the SON it never suits to JW be called as WITNESSES…

    But anyway may be they are really WITNESSES but not of GOD but of Jehovah…

    Salamat po Sa Dios, Bro Eli…..

    Because Jehovah is an imaginary God…..It only exist on their mind and on their own beliefs…..

  18. Dear Brother Eli,

    We believe that Barnabas is an Apostle. Is there a verse in the bible that will prove that Barnabas has seen the Lord Jesus Christ?

  19. Thanks God! At last, another article is on the web which is worth reading for.

    It was such a long time already that people are awaiting for another blog from Bro. Eli. Now, this is it! Go! Bro. Eli go! People are so thirsty waiting for your very informative and inspiring articles that would change people’s lives and their lifestyles for the better and nearer to God.

  20. Thanks God. At last, another article is on the web which is worth reading for.

    To God Be The Glory

  21. As I have said earlier that there is nothing to argue with the jehovah’s witnesses claim that they are witnesses to jehovah because we know that their jehovah is not the God Almighty at all…But the real problem here is, the leaders of this congregation have blinded and fooled so many people by letting them believe that the name of God is jehovah…One reason why so people have gone astray from the Truth is because of believing too fast without even examining or trying the spirit/spirits if he/they are really of God…1JOHN 4:1..And I admit I was one of them before…But thanks God He give us a Bro Eli as His instrument to lighten up so many souls.Praise be to God.

    • no one knows how ancient israelites pronounce exactly the name of God, niether no one knows also how the name jesus was pronounced during his time. When your attacking the pronounciation of the word ‘JEHOVAH’ then try not pronounce the word ‘JESUS’ cause it was not known then.

  22. No wonder why the false and erroneous doctrines of the Jehovah’s Witnesses are bigger than their organization because the founder of this religious cult whom all its false and erroneous doctrines came from, CHARLES T. RUSSEL, is a BIG LIAR and a FALSE PROPHET! He is a PROVEN PERJURER under the United States Judicial System and a FALSE PROPHET according to the Bible.

    As early as 1892 Russell’s views and management style were strongly criticized by certain individuals associated with his ministry. In 1893 a paper was written and circulated to Bible Students in Pittsburgh by associates Otto van Zech, Elmer Bryan, J.B. Adamson, S.G. Rogers, Paul Koetitz, and others. It expressed concern that Russell was a DICTATORIAL leader, a SHREWD BUSINESSMAN who appeared EAGER TO COLLECT FUNDS from the selling of the Millennial Dawn books, CHEATED one of them out of financial gains, and issued thousands of Millennial Dawn books UNDER A FEMALE PSEUDONYM. A booklet entitled A Conspiracy Exposed and Harvest Siftings was written by Russell and issued as an extra to the April 1894 Zion’s Watch Tower magazine in order to preempt attempts to have their views circulated to a wider audience of Bible Students. Russell printed copies of letters he had received from these former associates in order to show that their claims were trumped up, and those involved were guided by Satan in an attempt to subvert his work as a “minister of the gospel”.
    In 1897 RUSSELL’S WIFE LEFT HIM, after disagreeing over the management of Zion’s Watch Tower magazine. She expressed that, as his wife, she should have equal control over its administration, equal privilege in writing articles, preaching, and traveling abroad as his representative. In 1903 she filed for legal separation on the grounds of MENTAL CRUELTY, related to what she considered to be FORCED CELIBACY, and frequent cold, indifferent treatment. The separation was ultimately granted in 1906, with Russell charged to pay alimony. During the trial her attorney made the claim that Russell had been INAPPROPRIATELY INTIMATE with ROSE BALL, a young woman the Russells had cared for as a “foster daughter” since age ten.
    On March 22, 1911, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle began publishing articles accusing Russell of GAINING PROFIT from a strain of wheat named “Miracle Wheat” by its discoverer, K.B. Stoner of Fincastle, Virginia in 1903. Once other newspapers read this claim, many critics began to insist that Russell had deceived and defrauded many by selling this supposedly advanced strain of wheat for $60 a bushel, far above the average cost of wheat for the day. Throughout 1912 and 1913 the Eagle continued to report on this alleged fraud on Russell’s part. Russell sued the Eagle for libel, but lost. A Government expert investigated the “Miracle Wheat” and said it “was low in the Government tests”. Prior to entering the court the Eagle had published “The Eagle goes even further and declares that at the trial it will show that “Pastor” Russell’s RELIGIOUS CULT is NOTHING MORE THAN A MONEY-MAKING SCHEME.”
    In June 1912 the Reverend J.J. Ross, pastor of the James Street Baptist Church in Hamilton, Ontario, published the pamphlet, Some facts about the Self-Styled ‘Pastor’ Charles T. Russell which minced no words in its denunciation of Russell, his qualifications as a minister, or his moral example as a Pastor. Russell promptly sued Ross for “defamatory libel”. ROSS SEIZED UPON THE OPPORTUNITY AS A MEANS OF EXPOSING RUSSELL. During the examination on March 17 1913, Russell ADMITTED that at most he had attended school ONLY SEVEN YEARS of his life at the PUBLIC SCHOOL, and that HE HAD LEFT SCHOOL when he was about fourteen years of age. As Counselor Staunton pressed him further Russell ADMITTED that he KNEW NOTHING about Latin and Hebrew, and that HE HAD NEVER TAKEN A COURSE IN PHILOSOPHY OR SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY, and had NEVER ATTENDED SCHOOLS OF HIGHER LEARNING.
    Continuing his charges in the pamphlet, Ross EXPOSED Russell as a
    PSEUDO-scholar and philosopher who “never attended the higher schools of
    learning, knows comparatively nothing of philosophy, systematic or
    historical theology, and is totally ignorant of the dead languages”
    (pages 3,4). It must be clearly understood at this point by the reader
    that in a libel suit of the type pursued by Russell, the plantiff
    (Russell) had to prove that the charges lodged against him by the
    defendant (Ross) were not true. It is significant to note that Russell
    lost his suit against Ross when the High Court of Ontario, in session
    March, 1913, ruled that there were no grounds for libel; and “the case
    was thrown out of Court by the evidence furnished by ‘Pastor’ Russell
    himself” (page 15).

    “Pastor” Russell REFUSED to give any evidence to substantiate his “case” and THE ONLY EVIDENCE OFFERED WAS RUSSELL’S OWN STATEMENTS, MADE UNDER OATH AND DURING CROSS-EXAMINATION BY ROSS’S LAWYER, COUNSELOR STAUNTON. By denying Ross’s charges, Russell AUTOMATICALLY CLAIMED high scholastic ascendancy, recognized theological training (systematic and historical), working knowledge of the dead languages (Greek, Hebrew, etc.), and valid ordination by a recognized body. To each part of Mr. Ross’s pamphlet (and all was read) Russell entered VIGOROUS DENIALS, with the exception of the “Miracle Wheat Scandal” which he affirmed as have “a grain of truth in a sense” to it. “Pastor” Russell had at last MADE A SERIOUS MISTAKE. He had testified under oath before Almight God, and had sworn to tell “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” He was soon to REGRET his testimony and STAND IN JEOPARDY as a PERJURER, and UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCE for the “Pastor” which more than explains his AVERSION to the witness chair.

    JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES CANNOT DENY THIS DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE; IT IS TOO WELL SUBSTANTIATED. This is no “religionist scheme” to “smear” the “Pastor’s” memory; I offer it as proof of their founder’s inherent dishonesty and lack of morals, that they may see the type of man to
    whose doctrines they have committed their eternal souls.
    The following reference quotations are taken in part from Mr. Ross’s
    second pamphlet entitled Some Facts and More Facts About the Self-Styled
    Pastor – Charles T. Russell:

    But now what are the facts as they were brought out by the
    examination on March 17, 1913? As to his scholastic standing he
    (Russell) had sworn that what was said about it was not true. Under
    the examination, he admitted that at most he had attended school
    only seven years of his life at the public school, and that he had
    left school when he was about fourteen years of age…

    The cross examination of Russell continued for five hours. Here is a
    sample of how the “Pastor” answered.

    The following reproduction of the Russell v. Ross transcript
    relative to the perjury charge made against Russell is taken from a copy
    on file in the headquarters of the cult in Brooklyn and is presented in
    the interests of thorough investigation.

    Question: (Attorney Staunton) – “Do you know the Greek alphabet?
    Answer: (Russell) – “Oh YES.”

    Question: (Staunton) – “Can you tell me the correct letters if you
    see them?”
    Answer: (Russell) – “Some of them, I MIGHT MAKE A MISTAKE on some
    of them.”

    Question: (Stauton) – “Would you tell me the names of those on top
    of the page, page 447 I have got here?”
    Answer: (Russell) – “Well, I don’t know that I would be able to.”

    Question: (Stauton) – “You can’t tell what those letters are, look
    at them and see if you know?”
    Answer: (Russell) – “My way…”[he was interrupted at this point
    and not allowed to explain]

    Question: (Stauton) – “Are you familiar with the Greek language?”
    Answer: (Russell) – “NO.”

    It should be noted from this record of the testimony that Russell
    FREQUENTLY CONTRADICTED HIMSELF, claiming first to “know” the Greek
    alphabet, then claiming under pressure that he might make mistakes in
    identifying the letters, and then finally admitting that he couldn’t
    read the alphabet at all when confronted with a copy of it.

    From this it is easy to see that Russell did not “know” the Greek
    alphabet, in any proper sense of the term, since it is assumed that when
    we say we “know” the English alphabet, for example, we shall be able
    upon request to name the letters by their correct titles.

    “Pastor” Russell in failing to name the letters of the Greek
    alphabet, therefore, PROVED HIMSELF A PERJURER, for he had previously
    stated that he “knew” them, thereby implying the ability to recite them,
    which he could not do.

    It makes very little difference, therefore, whether the Watchtower
    wants to admit Russell’s guilt or not since their own transcript shows
    that Russell said he “knew” what was later proved he did not know.
    HIMSELF BEYOND QUESTION. Can one sincerely trust the teachings of a man
    who thought nothing of such evidence?

    This, however, was not all of Russell’s testimony, and as Counselor
    Staunton pressed him further the “Pastor” admitted that he knew nothing
    about Latin and Hebrew, and that he had never taken a course in
    philosophy or systematic theology, much less attended schools of higher
    learning. Bear in mind now that Russell a short time before had sworn
    he did have such knowledge by denying Mr. Ross’s allegations. But there
    was no way out now; the “Pastor” was caught in a bold-faced fabrication
    and he knew it. However, all was not over yet. It will be remembered
    that Russell claimed “ordination” and equal if not superior status to
    ordained and accredited ministers. Counselor Staunton next smashed this
    illusion by demanding that Russell answer “Yes” or “No” to the following

    Question: (Ross’ Lawyer) – “Is it true you were never ordained?”
    Answer: (Russell) – “It is NOT TRUE.”

    Question: (Counselor Staunton) – “Now, you never were ordained by a
    bishop, clergyman, presbytery, council, or any body of men
    Answer: (Russell, after a long pause) – “I NEVER WAS.”

    Once again Russell’s “UNSWERVING” HONESTY received a RUDE BLOW; the
    situation was OUT OF HIS HANDS and Russell STOOD HELPLESS as Counselor
    Staunton wrung statement after statement from him which ESTABLISHED HIM
    BEYOND DOUBT AS A PREMEDITATED PERJURER. Russell further swore that his
    wife HAD NOT divorced him, and that the court had not granted alimony
    from him, a statement he soon REGRETTED when Counselor Staunton FORCED
    AWARD HIS WIFE ALIMONY. The evidence was in; the case was clear.
    result of the Court’s action Mr. Ross’s charges were PROVEN TRUE and the
    real character of Russell was revealed, that of A MAN WHO HAD NO
    based on NO SOUND EDUCATIONAL KNOWLEDGE of the subject in question.
    Much evidence is available concerning Russell’s moral life, but I see no
    reason to inject lewdness into the text. The Character of the man is
    evident for all to see.

    After his death, Russell was accused of having CLOSE TIES with Freemasonry. Such critics have not only attempted to connect him with any of several different rites of the Freemasons, but have also attempted to show that such associations are connected with occult practices. They address that in later editions of his Studies in the Scriptures series a WINGED SOLAR DISK APPEARS ON THE FRONT COVER, which they state is AN EXCLUSIVELY MASONIC SYMBOL.

    many of it’s members here in mindanao don’t even understand tagalog. esp in hinterland areas.

    sila kasi ang mga madaling maloko yaong walang ka muwang2x

  25. you are really brilliant bro. eli. you are the only preacher. who made me interested in the Bible, specially when you are debating against other preacher, i can see the big difference.

    thank you very much

  26. HONOR AND GLORY be to GOD ALMIGHTY. Peace be with you Bro. Eli, Bro. Daniel, ministers, workers, and brethrens in the CHURCH OF GOD, and to all ‘bloggers’. Thanks God this blog has resumed. We are very sorry, but by the very ‘earthly’ standard and meaning of a witness, the Jehovah’s witnesses will never qualify as a witness. Hearsays {the highest that their doctrine and teachings can go} are not acceptable. If they can not even qualify on earth, how much more in heaven. By their Jehovah’s name alone which is not biblical, it is already a gone conclusion that their church is not of GOD but of man’s foundation. Sorry to say, the Jehovah’s witnesses are not really witnesses, and as a church, will not qualify as that of GOD. Thanks Bro Eli for going on with this blog inspite of all the difficulties, and persecutions. We admonish the ‘blinded and mislead’ members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and all the bloggers to stay on the web for more revelations from Bro Eli, and like the many of us, to discover one day, with the help and mercy from God, the TRUTH; and be with the real CHURCH OF GOD.

  27. nice post very enlightening as expected from our preacher.. let’s always pray for him and bro. daniel. and please also pray for me and all the bretherens who needs it.. thanks be to God!

  28. Thank you Brother Eli for coming back. I am a regular reader of your blog but this is the first time I join the others in praising God in His glory in print! Please help me though clear up some cobwebs in my mind as my thoughts are a bit muddled up. Here it is:

    In your past bible expositions I heard you correctly answered a question why in Isaias 43:13 the “Lord” said that ‘beside me there is no Saviour’ It is because during that time Christ was not yet in the ‘picture’ in His role as our Savior here on earth. Would it not be logical then that the one, the “Lord” speaking at verses 3 and 10 of the same chapter is God the Almighty Father and not Jesus Christ?. And correct me if I am wrong, but is it not that the “Lord” in verses 3, 10 and 13 are translations of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton YHWH which is the name of the Almighty God?

    But of course the present day Jehovah’s Witnesses are not those witnesses referred to in prophet Isaias’ time. Brod Quiel’s column is indeed quite a revelation that Russel’s adherents must read.

    Thank you Bro. Eli and may you always be in good health. You and Kuya Daniel are always in my prayers! Salamat po sa Dios!

  29. Isaas 43:10 when you read it on the original hebrew bible the term lord there represent the tetragrammaton YHWH which represent the Father Almigthy God not Lord Jesus, I hope bro Eli will answer this to enlighten us more.

  30. if the name JEHOVAH is not the exact name of God but invented only by jehovah’s pastors and in fact it was corrupted by adding vowel to its original which is YHWH. therefore, the god they are worshipping and calling by name is not the God of the old jews and christians of the bible but a false god , and if they were obeying the will of their false god and false teacher then the inevitable conclusion is that they were the true witnesses but can be categorized as false witnesses also.

    • the word ‘JEHOVAH’ is an English form. In German that is ‘JEHOVA’ (pronounced as YEHOWA, in Italian ‘GEOVA’.

      Same with the word ‘JESUS’. in Italian that is ‘GESU’, in greek IESOUS. In hebrew, YESHOUAH/YAHOSUAH.

      Same with PETER, in spanish that is PEDRO, latin PETROS.

      indeed, we use the names of JESUS and PETER without questioning how ancient hebrews pronounced it during their times.

  31. 50.

    if the name JEHOVAH is not the exact name of God but invented only by jehovah’s pastors and in fact it was corrupted by adding vowel to its original which is YHWH. therefore, the god they are worshipping and calling by name is not the God of the old jews and christians of the bible but a false god , and if they were obeying the will of their false god and false teacher then the inevitable conclusion is that they were not the true witnesses but can be categorized as false witnesses also, althought they can claimed but prooving it will be hard for them, esp. if the most sensible preacher in the world is around, 24hrs a day seven day a week, they are doomed!!! (spiritually speaking).

  32. yes we all do believe that the jehova’s witnesses are false witness, but what im traying to clear with bro Eli and i hope he answer this, in isaas 43:10 the lord there if we look in hebrew bible stand for YHWH that we all know is our God Almighty and not the lord Jesus, so how come he equate YHWH with our lord Jesus in his blog, i hope he answer this in his next blog thanks.

  33. Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded YOU. And, look! I am with YOU all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.

    This was a command of Jesus before. And to be a disciple one must act as a disciple. And one of it is preaching or bearing witness to the truth.Why are you not doing it?

    It was said in the Bible that faith without acts is dead. That is in James. And Jesus comamanded to be like him.Would it be only on traits? Of course not. It should also be in the way he preach the gospel.Just like his apostles did before.
    Now, are you following the steps of Jesus Christ and his apostles and other disciples?

    Matthew 24:14 And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.

    This is only true to Jehovahs Witnesses. This propehecy happens only to them. We are 236 trritories around the world.No religion can surpass even half of it. We are at the time of the end.When can they fulfill it?They are not yet over the world like Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    Isaiah 51:7,8, Zechariah 3:1-10, Isaiah 46:11. Think of it. That is why I name my blog as this.

    Who do you think is Joshua in Zechariah that is being invited to be in heaven. Remember those 144,000 that will be in heaven must be born in water and spirit.That is starting from John the baptizer and Jesus. All 144,000 must be baptized in water. John 3:3-5. So is Joshua before Jesus?He is a sinner before yet he is called by Jehovah.The moth will filfill the decision og Jehovah. To denunciate all nations. That is through religion. Through the truth and words of Him, the Bible.

  34. #


    Good day. It’s me once again. I have no scriptural bases to tell you more. but wait a minute. Do you know that Jesus means Jehovah is Salvation? I hope you wont disagree. So if Jesus is his name even before when he was first born, would it mean that Jehovah give this name to save the mankind. Did Jehovah knew already that there will be rebelled against him like Satan and his demons and Adam and Eve. The command of God was clear in Genesis to Adam and Eve. To multiply and have authority to earth.In Matthew the name Jesus is associated with expalantion of because he will going to save people. That is why I believe that Jesus is not the name of Jesus when he was in heaven but Michael. Michael means Who is Like God? Do you think

    Jesus doesnt potray the qualitities of Jehovah God. The four basic characteristics of Jehovah are love, justice, power and wisdom. Of course if anyone in the uiniverse that will almost be like him, that is none other than Jesus which is Michael, the archangel.Who is like God wouldnt fit to anyone except to Jesus.He is the image of the father, right?It is simple here. One must carry a qualities almost comletely like to Jehovah. Now tell me, is Jesus is not Michael?

  35. Travis,

    I have to copy the article of JWs about John 1:1. You will read it at proper time.With regard to the name Michael it means Who is Like God?It means the carrier of that name considering that was given to him by God and not by anyone is someone who is really almost God. That person Michael is the representation of God.Would Jehovah give a meaning to someone who is not fit to carry it?That is why Michael shows the sovereign power of God.It links to him. Giving a name to his people or angel is not an ordianry thing. It possess deeper meaning on it.

    Thanks for emailing me with regards for my last comments. Let me put my another comment here. I would like to share my comments to others so I just hope you will still publish it.Anyway I have something on my mind regarding 1Thessalonianns 4:16. I challenge you to prove to me the verse of 1 Thessalonians 4:16 in Greek, if Jesus is really written after the “voice of an archangel.”The poblem in other translators is they interchange the position of the words and that they believe Jesus is Jehovah or Yahweh. As far as I know, the grammar in Greek is not really like in english or other languages which denotes word for word
    fromthesunrising said
    May 17, 2009 at 11:42 am

    meaning. I guess Greek language is also like Chinese or Japanese wherein one character denotes many words. But my poin t here is the position of the words.If Jesus is written at the almost last part of the sentence in 1 Thessalonians 4:16, then I might agree that Jesus will come out after the command of voice of an archangel. So, if I may insist show me the real Greek verses regarding that and prove me the meaning or right transliteration of it.
    fromthesunrising said
    May 17, 2009 at 11:48 am

    In NWT it says there with an archangel’s voice.Arch means first in rank. Why would archangel’s voice woud associated to Jesus if he is not archangel? Or why does an archangel’s voice be his voice if he is not the archangel?Think of these.Would it proper to say “The President speaks witha voice of a servant.” or it should be “The Presedent speaks with a voice of an over-all ruler.” The other term signifies their position.The over-all ruler would only fit to a President like the most high leader in military, the general with five-star.
    fromthesunrising said
    May 17, 2009 at 11:53 am

    The power of a president is different from a power of a vice-president.But a power of a King is really like a power of a President.So as to giving the pardon is only given to the President and not to the vice-resident.I just hope you will include this on your posted article.This would be my final reasoning.You have included the article of JWs about Jesus as Michael.Thanks for the conversation.

  36. I was wondering why,many peolple do not want to accept name of God.But if that was not,because its english name.I see it on hebrew transation as if we remove Jehovah name in the bible.all text in the bible that contains with the name of God.will be replace by word Lord.As Israelite scribes in Psa 83:18 (83:19) That they may know that it is Thou alone whose name is (the LORD,) the Most High over all the earth. See here,How is it looks!when they remove the name of God.It does not look put _the lord_instead by the name of God.But the scribes did it.To keep away others to knows Gods name,because of their suspicious beliefs that its bad to mentions Gods name,as they misinterpreted the Moises 10 commandment.(Exo 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain)So it was happened now that it was totally removed from all Bible text in Hebrew.But God Himself said,(Exo 3:15 And God said moreover unto Moses: ‘Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel: The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you; this is My name for ever, and this is My memorial unto all generations).I know the word LORD,is not the true name of God.Tetragrammaton YHWH,is the true name of God,not the word Lord as translated as Adonai.which almost put in the Bible as replacement to place where Gods name will be should located.Like psalm83:18.and GOD said His people will be call by His name!So now that no one will want to use JEHOVAH as GOD name.coz they said its change by( Y to J) and (W to V)so it means there no religions or people that called by Gods name.Due to the change of J and V of Y and W.many said its not true name.But those saying that,can you tell me,why you believed and accept that JESUS IS THE name of CHRIST.They are using it.But its english translation.Many letters are change here.Jesus name in YEHOSUA .not only Jesus name here are change.But all his disciples names and bibles names.This Bible translators are really crap.THEY CAN TRANSLATE THE WORDS OF THE BIBLE,BUT WHY THEY NEED TO CHANGE THE NAMES OF PEOPLES.ITS WRONG THING TO DO!ITS A CHEAT!Because the truth is,name is name.if you use your name,but you change it,it will be falsification.Name is name no need to translate it so it be understand.Like me LOUIE,If I will go to Saudi.They cant translate my name there,because itwill cause trouble to immigration.even just one letter change!T he BIBLE I believe that its a word of GOD,but MANY translator made many mistakes on it.They wrong some of Bible parts.But they will pay for it,as what Rev. told.taht they will recieve penalty!Im a freelancer,i believe in bibles word but not to preachers selfish desires.Glory to GOD whose name unknown,and to his messiah.YEHOSUAH

  37. Hello Everyone, the Bible says:

    “The Lord Says:
    Oh Jerusalem, you suffering,
    HELPLESS CITY…”-Psalms 54:11

  38. THOUSANDS dead in last 50 years over the Watchtower society cult ban on vaccinations then organ transplants (both now repealed) and now currently ‘whole’ blood transfusions.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses and blood transfusions is contradictory they condemn blood but then go and use fractions donated by thousands of Red Cross volunteers.
    They use sixty percent of the blood volume as broken down fractions, then Bible thump about how dangerous and sinful blood transfusions are.

    The JW defenders will dance all around this but,
    we hear about the deaths all the time on the general news,and when they need to for the PR the Watchtower will eulogize these ‘martyrs for Jehovah’

  39. You better ask why a lot of Bible versions don’t have the BAD SPIRIT OF JEHOVAH. Is the NWT translator being rude to God Almighty? Did they alter really the inspired word of God? check out your Bible people!!!

    1Samuel 16:14 And the very spirit of Jehovah departed from Saul, and a bad spirit from Jehovah terrorized him. 15 And the servants of Saul began to say to him: “Here, now, God’s bad spirit is terrorizing you. 16 Let our lord, please, command your servants before you that they should look for a skilled man playing upon the harp. And it must occur that, when God’s bad spirit comes to be upon you, he will have to play with his hand, and it will certainly be well with you.”

    1 Samuel 16:23 And it occurred that, when God’s spirit came to be upon Saul, David took the harp and played with his hand; and there was relief for Saul and it was well with him, and the bad spirit departed from upon him.

    1 Samuel 18:10 And it came about the next day that God’s bad spirit became operative upon Saul, so that he behaved like a prophet within the house, while David was playing music with his hand, as in former days; and the spear was in Saul’s hand.

    1 Samuel 19:9 And Jehovah’s bad spirit came to be upon Saul when he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand, while David was playing music with his hand.

  40. Mr. eli soriano

    one verse of the bible that i can share to you.
    and Jesus Christ absolutely said this…
    and this is fulfilled on to you

    23 “Then if anyone says to YOU, ‘Look! Here is the Christ,’ or, ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will give great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the chosen ones.
    Mat. 24:23,24

    all of you get out in this organization of Eli Soriano

    25 Look! I have forewarned YOU.
    Mat. 24:25

    or else

    4 And I heard another voice out of heaven say: “Get out of her, my people, if YOU do not want to share with her in her sins, and if YOU do not want to receive part of her plagues.

    5 For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind.

    gOod Day mr eli

    I hope you like my comment..

    Glory to JEHOVAH…

    the end of The Great Babylon is Near….Reveelation 18:2

    • Please dont be stupid and put some basis on what you are saying. If you dont know how to use and for whom to use a verse then better not use it.

    • are you pointing to somebody and not bro. elli? show your proof against him. what falls teaching of bro. elli that you conclude him as false prophet. wake up and feed your soul.

    • how stupid you are sad to say you are in a false religion. . . you need to be more observant you have no right to say that we need to leave our religion beCAUSE WE ARE IN THE RIGHT RELIGION. . Bro. eli helps you and enlighten your mind what is your religion is. but i guess it is not for you.

  41. There’s no letter ” J ” in Hebrew alphabet so how and why do Jehova’s witnesses or other entities believe that the name of “The Father” is “Jehova”? Otherwise you would have to say that God is a Jew.

  42. Get Out?

    Glory TO JEHOVAH? is God said that or your saying in your own words…

    Your using the word of God in the wrong way you reply on th…..and theres nothing basis about your religion…you cannot even defend your own religion…debate bro. eli if you are brave enough to battle him to defend your belief of non-biblical name relegion jehovah..

    • People should have no debate but what is true should be heard by the people. It is not of showing who has wisdom above all but it is who is in the truth. Romans 10:13 clearly states that the name of God is a must to call upon since you may have salvation when proclaiming the name of God and this is not the name of Jesus because it is taken from Joel 2:32 take note of what time is this it is on the last days up to Armageddon and you can see it in Joel 2:31. If Jehovah is not correct so what is the right name for God that the Christian must call upon based on the requirement of God for the people to have salvation? The burden lies upon those who say that Jehovah is not the name of God since there is a call and A MUST for every Christians to call the name of God. It is also in Acts 2:19 – 21.

      • I agree with you 100% that there should’nt be any debateregarding the truth written in the bible, what we should talk about is how other people give their own interpretation to the words of God,

      • I agree with you 100% that there should’nt be any debate when it comes to the truth written in the scripture. The problem lies in how other people or preachers give their own interpretion of the Bible which more often that not is wrong. Never cease, keep searching for the truth…

  43. Just would like to ask brother Eli, “If Jehovah is not God’s name, then, what would it be?”.. I have been searching for truth, and my mind is open for any biblical-based teachings. I believe that the word God or Lord is not the appropriate name for the Almighty Father since such words are common nouns and are just mere titles. Just like for example if someone asks “Who wins the recent boxing competition? Would it be appropriate to answer “the BOXER”?. Absolutely NO. Isn’t it.

    I think being God’s follower, we must have to properly get acquainted with him, including his nature and character, his highness, including his name. What if someone asks “Who is God and What is His Name”. What would the correct answer be? Would it be YAHWEH, ADONAI, JEHOVAH, or simply YHWH? What would be the most accurate? I would appreciate some biblical based answers and suggestions. Thank you.

    • @ Rolly:
      The most correct would be Jehovah, why we should question the name Jehovah? The name is in the scriptures, Psalm 83:18, Isaiah 12:2, Exod 6:3, and many more verses, 7thousand times mentioned in the Bible, even in the bible using by Bro. Eli. If bro. Eli is correct when he said that there is no “J” in Hebrew, then let us accept it for a while, then, we should take out ALL the NAMES in the Bible starts with letter “J”. Like Joshua,Jehosaphat,Jehu, Jeremiah, Jehoram,Jerobaom, Jacob, Joseph,Jepthe, and many more names. Then it should be Eremiah,Ehu,Ehosaphat, Osepth,Acob. Now, imagine what kind of logic that bro. Eli said. He is attacking the name of the Father, Jehovah God, but he forgets that there are so many bible characters starts with J.. I respect him, as a preacher, but in this topic he goes wrong. If you can accept the names of the prophets in starts with letter J, why not the name of God also? Let us read “J” Jeremiah 23:25-27 it says”25 “I have heard what the prophets who are prophesying falsehood in my own name have said, saying, ‘I have had a dream! I have had a dream!’ 26 How long will it exist in the heart of the prophets who are prophesying the falsehood and who are prophets of the trickiness of their own heart? 27 They are thinking of making my people FORGET MY NAME by means of their dreams that they keep relating each one to the other, just as their fathers forgot my name by means of Ba′al….

      We as Jehovah’s Witnesses will not forget His Name..In Exodus 3:15 , Jehovah declared, This is my name to time indifinite.

      In other countries, they are not using J, but Y, using the name depends in our tongue.. Like James in English, when tranlated it became Santiago in tagalog, it is so very far, but we are not questioning it because it is our translation in tagalog…

      Thank you..

      • @lemz

        brother eli is exactly correct when he states that theres no letter J in the Hebrew language. heres the funny thing u mentioned names such as “Joshua,Jehosaphat,Jehu, Jeremiah, Jehoram,Jerobaom, Jacob, Joseph,Jepthe etc.are u implying that these are in the Hebrew form??? knock knock theyre all english HELLOWWWWWWWWW

  44. hahaha..hellowwww, Jehovah’s name is also English…not a Hebrew… Use your head.. Actually the and Ang Dating Biblia (1905) use by Bro. Eli also mentions the name of God.(Psalm 83:18, Isaiah 12:2,Exodo 6:3), just open your tagalog Bible po…Actually the King James Version bible, because of it’s 400th anniversary, restored the name of God Jehovah 6,000 times, where as you can see the King James 1611 only had used 4 times the name of Almighty God Jehovah.

      Now you have admitted that the names you have cited i.e.Joshua,Jehosaphat,Jehu, Jeremiah, Jehoram,Jerobaom, Jacob, Joseph,Jepthe, are in English form. Then why do you have to use those names to refute brother eli’s point that theres no letter “J” in the Hebrew language? He’s refering to the Hebrew language. You were blinded by your faith.

      Consequently your admission proves your god’s name jehovah to be fake. The fact that the English language originated only after Jesus era and therefore unknown to the Old Testament book Hebrew writers.

  45. lol at “bro Eli” its a shame that people have forgotten Gods true name. If you are so smart eli telll us what is gods real name as he does have one. That is the purpose of having a name for people to know who you are. If It wasn’t the case, then why did jehovah telll adam to name all the animals, plants and fish in the bible? Who does’nt have a name?
