Christian jehovah witness dating
Christians throughout the centuries have been proclaiming the Second Coming of Christ for 2,000 years.
Each one longs in his heart for the Redeemer to return and bring His judgments and the peaceful millennial reign to follow.
So, Jesus “…will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” Jesus Christ, in His resurrection body of flesh and bone, ascended into heaven and His followers watched Him until He rose above their line of vision.
He will come again “in just the same way.” Not invisibly, but so that “every eye will see Him!
It is our prayer that many Jehovah’s Witnesses will come to know the truth about Jesus Christ, so they can be prepared for his visible second coming.
Jehovah’s witnesses vs Christians Christianity, by definition, is a belief system that reflects the teachings of Jesus Christ which technically qualify Jehovah’s witnesses as Christians since they do follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.
This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:9-11 NAS).This was due to the failure of a prophecy by them that He was to return visibly in 1914 (updated once from 1874! When Jesus did not show up on their date, they were forced to explain away the failure.They did this by seizing on a secondary meaning of one Greek word used in conjunction with Christ’s coming again. This particular Greek word was used in two scriptures, 2 Thessalonians 2:8 and 1 Thessalonians . 2 Thessalonians 2:8 reads in the New American Standard Version, “And then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming.” In a reliable Bible version such as the one quoted, it is very clear that Christ will make an “appearance” which we will all see with our own eyes at “His coming.” Not so with the deliberately altered version of the Jehovah’s Witnesses which reads, “Then indeed, the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with by the spirit of his mouth and bring to nothing by the manifestation of his presence” (New World Translation).To be really accurate we need to look at them all, not just selected, isolated scriptures that can be twisted to suit one’s preconceived ideas.The Greek word apokalupsis, which means “an uncovering,” “laying bare,” and “a revealing, revelation” is used in 2 Thessalonians 1:7 and the verb form in 1 Peter .
