John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
I read where JW's believe God's Holy Spirit is just a force. That is a lie and blasphemy because Jesus said He was going to send us a helper once He went to be with our Father.
Can a force grieve?
Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
John 14:26 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. (HE, NOT A FORCE OR IT)
Think about this. Every JW that shuns and attacks a born again believer is attacking God's Holy Spirit who is living inside of us.
I Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
Matthew 12:3-31 He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters. (Like in running away)
31 “Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. 32 Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
God's Holy Spirit would not lead people into a cult, distorting the truth and oppressing them with time cards ordained by men.
22 Then a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute was brought to Jesus, and He healed him, so that the mute man spoke and saw. 23 All the crowds were amazed, and were saying, “This man cannot be the Son of David, can he?” 24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “This man casts out demons only by Beelzebul the ruler of the demons.”
JW's believe born again believers are apostates serving satan. We are born again believers by God's Holy Spirit. JW's are saying we are doing the works of the devil. This is blasphemy against God's Holy Spirit.
WHO ARE THE ANOINTED...THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN NOT JUST THE 144,000 WHO ARE FROM THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
JW'S BELIEVE THE 144,000 are the only anointed ones. This is a lie because God's word is true.
I John 2:27 As for you, the ANOINTING IN WHICH YOU HAVE RECEIVED from HIM ABIDES in you, and you have NO NEED for ANYONE to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. (Can a force or it teach you all things?)
No literature is required only God's Holy Spirit and Bible to not be deceived.
I John 2:1 2 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the WHOLE WORLD.
The reason why JW's can't say Jesus is Lord, God came to earth as man as our perfect sacrificial Lamb, to be filled with God's Holy Spirit is because they are not born again and believe Jesus is Michael the archangel. As believers we know we have God's Holy Spirit living in us. He speaks to us very clearly.
God's Holy Spirit is not a force. JW's believe He is a force because they don't know Him.
I Corinthians 12:3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
4 But when the kindness of GOD OUR SAVIOR and His love for mankind appeared, 5 He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom He poured out upon us richly through JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR, 7 so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
GOD'S HOLY SPIRIT...
Hebrews 2:4 God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.
Can a force or an it speak to you... can you hear HIS voice?
Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says,
“Today if you hear His voice,
8 Do not harden your hearts as when they provoked Me,
As in the day of trial in the wilderness,
9 Where your fathers tried Me by testing Me,
And saw My works for forty years.
Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 1:20 But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 3:11 “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
John 1:33 I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’
Acts 1:18 “Brethren, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the HOLY SPIRIT FORETOLD by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus.
Acts 7:51 “You men who are stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did.
The JW's are resisting God's Holy Spirit calling Him a force, refusing to believe the truth in that they must be born again, not of flesh but of God's Holy Spirit. They lower Jesus to be an angel so they don't worship Him. Read the book of Matthew and find multitudes of believers worshiping Jesus. That is just a start. Every knee will bow!
Philippians 2:9-11 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of JESUS EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”
