The Watchtower Society said that Jesus Christ returned invisibly in 1914. Let’s dig into the word of God. The Watchtower Society (also known as the Jehovah’s Witnesses) represents a group of people who preach a counterfeit gospel and ultimately a counterfeit Jesus Christ. They teach that Jesus returned invisibly in 1914. You’ll find that in their book called Reasoning through the Scriptures. You’ll find that teaching in Wikipedia online and it tells us that the Watchtower Society Publications teach that Jesus Christ returned invisibly and began to rule in heaven as King in October 1914. I’ll show you the scriptures to disprove that false teaching.
The Watchtower Society believes that Jesus is now ruling through the Watchtower Society and this is the group known as the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Revelation 1:7-8 says “Behold he cometh with clouds and every eye shall see him and they also which pierced him and all kindreds of the Earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord which is, and which was and which is to come, the Almighty.” In verse 7, it says “and all kindreds”. The word in Greek for that word “kindred” is “phule”. All the kindreds of the earth are going to be wailing for the return of Jesus Christ and it makes it clear that every eye shall see him and the Watchtower Society come up with all sorts of things to say that you’re not going to actually see him with the eye. Whoever is alive at the time of the coming of Jesus Christ is going to see him, every eye shall see the coming of the Lord. This is a great event that’s going to take place. Verse 8 says the one who is coming is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, saith the Lord which is, which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega. Revelation 1:9-11 “saying I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last…” The Alpha and Omega, and the first and the last are the same person.
Revelation 1:17-18 “And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead and he laid his right hand upon me saying unto me ‘Fear not, I am the first and the last, I am he that liveth and was dead and behold I am alive forevermore, amen, and have the keys of hell and of death’”. It says in verse 18 “I am he that liveth, and was dead” so obviously we are talking about Jesus Christ. We know that he’s coming again.
Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost parts of the earth.” “You should be witnesses unto me”, unto Jesus Christ. They call themselves “Jehovah’s Witnesses” but we are “witnesses unto Jesus”. Acts 1:9-11 “And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken off and a cloud received them out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel which also said ‘You men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.’” Those two men dressed in white are angels so here you have angels speaking to the disciples who were gazing as Jesus is going up and the same way is going up as the same way he’s coming down again. You are going to see Jesus Christ come again if you are alive.
Matthew 24:32 “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” The word for tribes there is the word “phule” (same word in Revelation 1:7), the word for “kindreds”. So we know that the Son of man is coming, the Son of man is the Alpha and Omega, he’s the first and the last, he’s the almighty, he’s coming again. When he comes again, he is coming to judge.
Revelation 22:12-17 “And behold I come quickly and my reward is with me to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter the gates in through the gates into the city for without (i.e. outside) are dogs and sorcerers and whoremongers and murderers and idolaters and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. Root comes before offspring. Jesus is the creator, he was David’s Lord. Jesus Christ was often called the son of David, he was the promise to inherit the throne of David. The Lord is the eternal Lord, he’s the eternal Christ and yet he was manifest In the flesh.
