what does it mean to be one of Jehovah’s witnesses? have you ever wondered that? I mean don’y you see us going door to door? maybe some of the conventions we have in various places around the world many see us and wonder, don’t you? so what does it mean then?
Just think about the name, Jehovah witness, what does a witness do? what exactly do they use witnesses for in court for example? tell what you know or what you have seen? what have I seen that I testify to? That Jehovah name has been tainted, muddied, reproached, blasphemied, and that he has been treated unjustly and he has been blamed for all the suffering the world has/is suffering, without anyone giving him a fair hearing as one would expect in a court of law.
when we go door to door we give others the chance to hear his side of the story, the chance to benefit from his loving concern, to see how he will end the suffering that he is blamed for, why he as allowed this suffering, and how we will benefit in a way that we would just be awestruck by. By striving to speak on his behalf we endeavor to help people see where the real problem lies and how Jehovah has not done to us what we deserve or left us in a lurch. we show by our obedience to his moral laws we show how his way is the best way to solve mankinds problems, to end the violence done to each other.
by remaining neutral to politics we show to others that we do not condone nor support the wars, and violence done in the name of saving people from tyranny while at the same time causing tyranny, and our hands remain clean before Jehovah and honest hearted people, we don’t share in the blame of those in power who break Jehovahs laws in the name of some end that appears good when in fact it is not. we show by our actions that we desire to see an end to all wars, violence, death and suffering. we show that we recognize jehovahs right to rule over the earth due to his creatorship, and we recognize that man’s efforts to end this violence cannot come through any of man’s efforts no matter how noble the motives.
we show others by what we say and do that we recognize the affects of Satan and his demon hordes use of governments, the economic system and religious institutions to do his bidding. How satan is behind all the false called knowledge, evolution, enviromentalism,government being a righteous entity, and religion being a solution to a growing moral problem and materialism being a good thing. he is behind the wars, violence that is done in the name of some good or benevolent purpose.
we show that we want to see mankind united, in peaceful conditions where death is no more, that we trust that Jehovah’s way and motives are pure and above reproach. and endeavor to witness to this fact for those who care to listen. Far be it for anyone who loves Jehovah and his neighbor to want anything less, and to testify how that will be accomplished without using violence to achieve it.
we witness to the fact that Jehovah being our creator has the right and our best interests at heart to determine what is good and bad. He is the one who has the right to give life or take it away when someone is incorrigable. we recongize that wonderful qualities he has and try to share that with others, those qualities of love, justice, wisdom and power which are all balanced. His quality of justice, wisdom and power did not motivate or require him to create life, his love did.
He doesn’t need us, he was complete, he lacked nothing, he created us to share life, not to create slaves, he was quite capable of doing all for himself without much effort if any at all. satan would have people believe that Jehovah’s motives are impure that he wants to enslave and being waited on hand and foot when it is satan who wants exactly that. He has used false religion and tv, movies and newspapers and magezines to give a wrong impression of the kind of person Jehovah is.
so I testify before all who read this Jehovah is not responsible for the injustices in the world he does not force people to love him, and does not force people to use their free will properly, he does hold an accounting for how we use this life he has given us, he will determine who is deserving of mercy and who is not, satan does not do this, he has no compassion or love, he never shows mercy he is limited by Jehovah to how much he can do as he was limited to how he could test job. If satan had full reign to do as he pleases he would of destroyed all mankind long ago, and no Jehovah’s witness would ever exist as he would stamp them out immediatly. but Jehovah’s love for mankind and eventually salvation by him would not allow him to let satan to do so. Satans contends not that Jehovah is not all powerful, but that he doesn’t have our best interests at heart, that he doens’t rule with totally unselfish motives, when in fact it is satan who is called a manslayer, who is the accuser and slandering of others whether man or angel or Jehovah.
do we do these things perfectly? absolutly not. we stumble many times but as the bible indicates the righteous may stumble many times but certainly will get up and continue on. Jehovahs approval is not contingent on being perfect. it is contengent on loving him and obeying him to the fullest extent we are capable of.
so if you have wondered, wonder no more. this is just the tip of the ice berg but should be enough to give you the idea what we are all about.
thanks for reading. have a wonderful day okay?
