JW elder admits Jehovah is freemasonry god name For Lucifer.
Freemason and Watchtower Society elder admits that Jehovah is the masonic god name for Lucifer. The most enlightening video I've seen concerning the WS. Only 16:32 minutes. Go, Smurf Girl!The Truth about Charles Taze Russell - Raymond Franz.

Looking at WS history, it's no great surprise that it became a controlling cult, as its second incarnation was built upon the ridiculous prophecy of its founder and first president, C T Russell (1852-1916); the certainty that Armageddon would begin in October, 1914. Dissatified with the teachings of mainstream, Christian denominations, Russell decided to undertake his own, Biblical research. Unfortunately, he appears to have treated the Holy Bible as a mystical text, full of hidden meaning, which he was determined to reveal. The lack respect he had, for the Holy Bible, can be demonstrated by the fact that he ignored the following verses:
Russell, in his arrogance, very confidently affirmed October 1914, as the beginning of Armageddon; something which the Bible clearly states is known only by God. The folly of Russell's claim was demonstrated when Armageddon failed to show up, as it has done every day since.
What is remarkable, about today's WS is that, despite the proof of Russell's failure and the Bible's warning about trying to second guess God, they have persisted with exactly the same approach. Some time after the second, proposed Armageddon year, 1925, also came and went, they decided to keep the 1914 calculation and simply moved the goalposts, such that 1914 was now the date of Christ's invisible return and Armageddon would take place within the lifetime of some of the Bible Students who had witnessed the events of 1914. The problem is that this prophesy has also failed as, in 2018, even someone born, at the outbreak of WW1, would now be 104 years old. The 1914 generation has all but died out.
The second incarnation of the WS appears to be in limbo, as there are clear signs that the organization is restructuring. For example, the Watchtower Magazine is only going to be published three times per year and comprise only 16 pages. Of course, the ongoing scandal, regarding the failure of the organization to report known paedophiles, has been enormously damaging. That the WS continues to refuse to allow authorities access to their paedophile database is, in itself, a scandal.
It will be interesting to see what emerges out of this, second wreckage. It's difficult to see how the WS can reinvent itself, when its credibility is in such tatters. Membership numbers, at least in developed countries, can only be going one way. I sense that Watchtower 3 will be more Dud's Army than The Charge of the Loony Brigade.
However, at the WS meeting, only those (very few) with a Heavenly hope; part of the 144,000, are supposed to partake. Almost all of the congregation, who have been taught to have only an Earthly hope, are expected simply to pass the bread and wine along! To partake of the 'emblems'; as the WS call the bread and wine, is to consider yourself to be among the total of only 144,000, New Covenant Christians, and is very much frowned upon, by all accounts.
Extract from JW.org (28/07/2018):
When Jehovah’s Witnesses observe the Lord’s Evening Meal, only a small fraction of us partake of the bread and wine. Why is that so?
Jesus’ shed blood established “a new covenant” that replaced the covenant between Jehovah God and the ancient nation of Israel. (Hebrews 8:10-13). Those who are in that new covenant partake of the Memorial emblems. It includes, not all Christians, but only “those who have been called” in a special way by God . (Hebrews 9:15; Luke 22:20) These ones will rule in heaven with Christ, and the Bible says that just 144,000 people receive that privilege.—Luke 22:28-30; Revelation 5:9, 10; 14:1, 3.
In contrast to the “little flock” of those called to rule with Christ, the vast majority of us hope to be part of “a great crowd” who will gain everlasting life on earth. (Luke 12:32; Revelation 7:9, 10) While those of us with an earthly hope do not partake of the Memorial emblems , we do join in expressing thanks for the sacrifice that Jesus made in our behalf.—1 John 2:2.
So! There it is! JW do not consider themselves to be a part of the New Covenant and, therefore, cannot consider themselves to be Christians. Once a year, they have to prove that they're not Christians, by refusing to partake in the communion. It's an anti-Christian ceremony. Unsurprisingly, there's no meeting to celebrate the resurrection!
I imagine that it would save a great many people a lot of confusion, if the full question were asked, but deceipt and confusion appear to play a key role in the WS strategy. Where, within the Holy Bible, is the section covering a post Gospel Age, proir to Armageddon, within which the WS claims that we are now living? Nowhere!
Hebrews 1:1-4 (NIV†) 1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
Hebrews 1:1-4 (NWT2013) 1 Long ago God spoke to our forefathers by means of the prophets on many occasions and in many ways. 2 Now at the end of these days he has spoken to us by means of a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the systems of things. 3 He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact representation of his very being, and he sustains all things by the word of his power. And after he had made a purification for our sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. 4 So he has become better than the angels to the extent that he has inherited a name more excellent than theirs.
These, four verses expose the dishonest character of the WS. 'In these last days he has spoken to us by his Son' (NIV†). 'Now at the end of these days he has spoken to us by means of a Son' (NWT2013). The simplest way of understanding this statement, which is similar in the WS Bible, is that Jesus has the final word. However, the WS claims that the Gospel Age, during which Christians followed Jesus Christ, is over and that, in this post Gospel Age, God speaks to us through only the WS. What an extraordinary boast! Yet, there's no mention of any authority, from God, which follows Christ. WS teaching is a big lie!
Hebrews 1:4 is also a joy because of what it says about the name of Jesus Christ. It's also in the WS Bible, so they can't ignore it. Jesus Christ wasn't just given His name but he "inherited" it. Inherited it from.. God. So His name once belonged to.. God. What!? Surely, that's more evidence that God and Jesus are one! That would explain why, in the New Testament, the predominent name is Jesus. That notion is anathema to the WS.
I should be grateful, to the WS, for giving me a far better understanding of how Satan operates. The irony is that JW believe that Christ will destroy them, at Armageddon, if he finds them alive but not doing what is the Devil's work. However, Jesus Christ is a good guy and will quickly forgive those who became trapped; wasting their lives promoting a lie.
Matthew 23:13,15 (NIV†) 13 Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
15 Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are."
VOLUME ONE - THE DIVINE PLAN OF THE AGES
THE KINGDOM OF GOD
'This kingdom and honor prepared for man should not be confounded with that still higher kingdom and honor prepared for the Christ, which were “ordained before the world unto our glory” (1 Cor. 2:7), and to which we were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world. And though the special intervention and reign of the Christ over [page 306] earth will close, as foreshown, we must not conclude that Christ’s glory and dominion and power will then cease. Nay, Christ is associated forever with all the divine glory and power at the right hand of Jehovah’s favor; and his Bride and joint-heir will forever share his increasing glory. What wondrous works in other worlds await the power of this highly exalted agent of Jehovah, we will not here surmise, further than to suggest the infinitude and activity of divine power, and the boundlessness of the universe.'
VOLUME ONE - THE DIVINE PLAN OF THE AGES
'It will be observed that the divine plan is complete and harmonious with itself in every part, and that it is in perfect harmony with the character which the Scriptures ascribe to its great Author. It is a marvelous display of wisdom, justice, love and power. It carries with it its own evidence of superhuman design, being beyond the power of human invention, and almost beyond the power of human comprehension..
And be it known that no other system of theology even claims, or has ever attempted, to harmonize in itself every statement of the Bible; yet nothing short of this we can claim for these views.'
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.
