How can I witness to a Jehovah’s Witness?

Question: How can I witness to a Jehovah’s Witness?

Answer: The next time the Jehovah’s Witnesses comes to your front door, instead of simply turning them away, why not spend five minutes and sow some simple seeds of truth into their lives? You may not convert them to true Christianity right there at your doorstep, but you can give them some important truths to consider, truths which may eventually bear genuine fruit of repentance and conversion in their lives.

The basic error of the Jehovah’s Witnesses is what we call a “theology of denial”. Jehovah’s Witnesses basically deny all of the central doctrines of the Christian faith; most significantly, they deny the Deity of Jesus Christ. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrongly believe that Jehovah alone is God almighty, Jesus is only a god- a created being (actually the archangel Michael), and the Holy Spirit is simply an active force. This is a far cry from the true biblical doctrines of the Trinity and the Deity of Jesus Christ.

Now, if you only have five minutes to spend with a Jehovah’s Witness, try walking them through the following passages of scripture, passages that bear witness to the reality of the Deity of Jesus Christ (and the beauty of sharing these passages is that you can even use the Jehovah’s Witness’ false version of the Bible, the New World Translation):

1) Begin by reading with the Jehovah’s Witness from Revelation 1:8.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “Who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

After reading this verse together, ask them the following question, “Who is the Alpha and the Omega?” They will respond by saying something like, “Well, it says right there, the Alpha and the Omega is the Lord God (or Jehovah God in their translation).”

2) Next, ask them if they will read another passage of scripture with you, and read from Revelation 22:13.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End”

After reading this verse with them, ask them, “Now, who exactly is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last?”  And they will probably respond by saying something like, “We just saw who the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last is, he is the Lord God (or Jehovah God in their translation).

3) Lastly, ask them if they’ll look at one more passage with you, and read with them from Revelation 1:17-18.

When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last (stop here and ask again, ‘who is the First and the Last?’). I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever!”

After reading this last passage of Scripture with them, ask the Jehovah’s Witness, “So, when exactly did the Lord God (or Jehovah God in their translation) die?” And most Jehovah’s Witnesses will just look at that passage in bewilderment, for you have just shown them conclusively, even from their own translation, that Jesus is the Lord God (or Jehovah God). If you want to demonstrate this reality even further, read with them from Revelation 22:13 & 16, where the Alpha and the Omega says, “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.”

This series of passages can be a powerful tool when witnessing to a Jehovah’s Witness. These passages demonstrate that Jesus Christ is the Lord God, or Jehovah God. Jesus Christ is not simply a god, a created being; he is the eternal Lord God.

The next time the Jehovah’s Witnesses come to your front door, instead of simply turning them away, why not try sharing these three passages with them? God could use you to powerfully impact the life of a Jehovah’s Witness… and it only takes five minutes!

SKIN DEEP

Dusky skinned child, plays in the sand,
Learning to live with, and love the land
Aunties and Uncles, in profusion, around;
Possessions are few, but love abounds

Share this Poem of love on Twitter

Pale skinned lawyer, of the city street,
Lives with his books, keeps everything neat,
Thinks, “how could a child with nothing to wear,
Be growing ‘correctly’, living ‘out there’?”

Taught of a God who ‘prefers you white’,
Yet Your Spirit witnesses, “This isn’t right”,
Hears of a God who’ll not slumber, nor sleep,
But lovingly over them, watch always keep.

This is a God who does not see the skin,
But only the spirit, that dwells deep within,
This is a God who exists everywhere,
With their folk faraway, and with the child there.

This is a God to their Dreamtime akin,
For from Him, and through Him, all things did begin.
This is a God who will help them survive,
Keeping their heritage, inside, alive.

Many the things, that were done in Your Name,
Should cause us to hang down our heads in shame,
Many the things that we still do now,
Would cause a furrow, in our Father’s brow.

Teach us to love and to live in peace,
Let fighting between all Your children cease,
Let us, no longer; look at the skin,
But welcome our sibling, who is within.

Let us, as Your family, proudly declare,
That this is a land in which all can share,
Turn from the past, with its sin and shame,
And proudly together, exalt Your Name.

Let us become, a nation of love,
Lifting Your Name to the heavens above,
Open Your heavens, and out blessings pour,
Till all people are Yours, from shore to shore.

GOD’S BREATH

Breathe on me, Thou Breath of God,
For when Your Spirit burns through me;
He cleans out all not right.

Share this Poem of love on Twitter

And though to be like You, oh Lord,
Is now my heart’s desire,
I know that I am fleshly too,
And fearful of Your fire.

So take me gently by the hand,
Show me what I must see;
The things that must be driven out,
That I might grow like Thee.

WHY?

Why do we see the sun, and not the light?
Why in the world, must there always be a fight?
Why can mankind, never live aright?
God knows.

Why do we keep our hearts and eyes downcast?
Why let days and years, in haste, rush past?
Why not turn to the words of truth, that last?
God shows.

Why should we try to walk, the narrow way?
Why should we listen, to what God has to say?
Why should we read His Book, every day?
God grows.

Why should we offer a hand of love?
Why pray for healing from above?
Why speak of the Spirit, sweet, gentle dove?
God flows.

Why was there ever a Calvary?
Why did Jesus’ death set us free?
Why at His Name, do demons flee?
God overthrows!

Why did God choose to create mankind?
Why in each of us does He pleasure find?
Why the whole of our lives, with His love, does He bind?
Only God knows!!
