And the foolish answer from the WATCHTOWER.
Our Readers Ask . .
Is Jesus the Archangel Michael?
▪ Put simply, the answer is yes.
Simply put: if Hebrews 1:5 and Hebrews 1:13 is correct
(see previous post) then Jesus could not have been an Angel.
What does the bible teach? Was Jesus
(1)God, (2)a god, (3)an Angel, (4)merely a man, or (5)the Son of God?
2) a god
4) merely a man
5) the Son of God

Dear friends of Christ,
The great mystery of Christ revealeth that he is all of the above.He is all these things that Ed listeth.He came to show us God is the all in all and he too is that all in all.
I suppose by saying that Mary is his mother that represents that Jesus is the sum of God’s created beings
Plus by saying God is his Father that represents that Jesus is the sum of God as well –
and in that way Jesus is a mergence of all things toward God.
Is that what you suggesting AndrewAD?

I know who Jesus is but what of you?
As a jewish religious person can you recognise him as the messiah without rejecting your adopted faith?
I see you are still having difficulty believing Scripture.May 24, 2015 at 7:36 am #798349
Not believing that a man can bring his own religion into the Body of Christ.
You cannot be your own head any more.May 24, 2015 at 10:49 am #798352
I have no idea what you are speaking of but I do know that you have no biblical evidence to prove that Judaism is a different religion than Christianity. Once you accept that then perhaps you will accept more important things Scripture teaches.May 24, 2015 at 1:09 pm #798354
There is no longer Jew and gentile but just one body of Christ.

You are confusing inheritance with religion. There is no Gentile religion but rather they are those not in the covenant of Abraham.
Some Jews falsely preached that Gentiles had to become Jews in order to enter the kingdom of heaven.
A Gentile that preaches that Jews must become Gentiles in order to enter the kingdom of heaven is just as false.May 24, 2015 at 8:17 pm #798365
Are you in the covenant of Abraham?
Either way rebirth is into Jesus Christ of repentance, water and the Spirit.
Your previous alliances are of no benefit to you.May 25, 2015 at 6:40 am #798368
The gift of circumcision was received under the covenant of Abraham. I am a Gentile and have was not born into that covenant.
You contradict the words of Jesus for he said:
Matthew 5:18-19New King James Version (NKJV)
18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Heaven and earth has passed away so do you know better than Jesus?
Even the Jews of this day teach the Law of Moses was not for Gentile believer but only the righteous requirements of it. They teach those requirements were given to Noah and descendants.
Those who tell a Jew they must be a Gentile in order to enter the kingdom of God are teaching falsely.May 25, 2015 at 6:47 am #798370
Indeed the standard demanded by the Law now is that of perfection.
One succeeded.May 25, 2015 at 6:51 am #798373
The covenant of Abraham is in Genesis 17.
Galatians 3:15-18New King James Version (NKJV)
15 Brethren, I speak in the manner of men: Though it is only a man’s covenant, yet if it is confirmed, no one annuls or adds to it. 16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,”[a] who is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect. 18 For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no longer of promise; but God gave it to Abraham by promise.May 25, 2015 at 6:53 am #798376
Your last post sounds correct.May 25, 2015 at 6:55 am #798377
Then why do you not let the law lead you to Christ and the new covenant?
The schoolmaster cannot take you further.May 25, 2015 at 7:04 am #798378dLParticipant

A CHALLENGE FOR JW’S TO EXAMINE WATCHTOWER TEACHINGS ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE
“Unfortunately, as a Jehovah’s Witness, you are only encouraged to study what the Watchtower and Awake magazines tell you to study. That means you can’t really check up on all it false prophecies on your own. Instead, you must trust what it tells you about its own false prophecies. In addition, you are instructed to not take any literature from ‘apostate Christendom.’ This way, you will have far less opportunity to be challenged, something the Watchtower organization doesn’t want to happen.”May 25, 2015 at 7:04 am #798379
I know more about the new covenant than the law because even among those that call themselves Christians the Law of Moses is often condemned.
The Law of Moses “is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, ” (2 Timothy 3:16)
