DISOBEDIENCE

 October 14th, 2010 | Author: Douglas

The subject of disobedience seems to be elementary if discussed without all the elements involved. It is very easy to state that this or that person is mostly obedient, or mostly disobedient.

If certain rules or guidelines have been laid down, and they are basically elementary, then the above could be mostly true.

Now, unfortunately, when it comes to the contents of the Holy Bible, we are dealing with a completely different kettle of fish.

You have to know what is expected of you, and this does not only involve the doing of deeds. To love others and having self-control, being patient and knowing the will of Jehovah God, and then also there are many, many other additional requirements.

This is where the problem of billions of people lie. There are millions who adhere strictly to man-made laws. Then there are millions that also not only strictly obey man-made laws, but sacrifice much of their time, energy and even finances to be excessively kind to their fellow humans, and thus alleviate much suffering.

In Noah’s day there were many of those people as well. They were basically kind-hearted. But they paid with their lives because they were disobedient to Jehovah God’s laws. All the religious leaders also were destroyed. No one seems to think of these occurrences. Everybody that was destroyed was disobedient to Jehovah God in some or other way, or ways, and unfortunately their young offspring as well.

In our existing societies, ignorance of the earthly laws is not an acceptable excuse. You do not disobey a red robot when driving your car. Please do not say that you took note of this from your driving instruction manual. As a young child you did not see it in the driver’s manual either, but you knew about it. If it did not make sense once you started learning to drive, you would have soon enough verified it from the driver’s manual. Mostly, however, you abided by that law on the hearsay of others. Even as a child, you did not cross a street against a red robot.

Today, the Jehovah’s Witnesses are, on a continuous basis, throughout the world, warning of the “red robots of Jehovah God’s Manual for human survival”. Very few go to the trouble to verify if the truth or lies are being advocated. This is going to cause those that disobey those “red robots” to “crash” and be “killed” into eternity.

Just as with man’s law, the onus remains with you to “verify” what is proclaimed about Jehovah God’s Biblical Laws.

I would just like to relate a personal experience that has much bearing on the subject of “disobedience”:

I informed my son that fornication was punishable. He was about sixteen years old at the time. He promptly informed me that “the Bible says that you must test all things, and then adhere to the good things”. I then let the conversation flow inadvertently in another direction. After quite a while I then said to him: “You know Colin, this country is crime-ridden, and as we have an old motorcar, I think if we stole a better one, the possibility of us getting caught would be negligible”. My expression and whole attitude was one of outright seriousness and sincerity. His shocked answer was that we could not do that.

I then asked him why, and he promptly informed me: “It is a crime, and we can also get caught”.

I then abruptly informed him that he was being a coward. The shock on his face was unbelievable, while I allowed my statement to sink in. Then I continued: “Colin, the only reason that you do not seem to want to steal the motorcar is that you know that the police can catch and gaol you. Surely you should be able to explain to the police that you were just experiencing theft, found it actually to be quite good, but would never do it again because you realised that the owner was most probably devastated. If, however, you feel that that is not acceptable, why do you think your Almighty Heavenly Father, Jehovah God, should accept it?”

The above true experience is true of billions of people today! No, I am not perfect, but in my own little way, I try. Also, at least I know mostly what is expected of me, and where I fail!

Just for the record: The Bible states that the people sin or are disobedient because Jehovah God does not IMMEDIATELY punish them

Let us see what the Bible Scriptures below state about Disobedience:

Joshua 22:16

“This is what all the assembly of Jehovah have said, ‘What is this act of unfaithfulness that YOU have perpetrated against the God of Israel in turning back today from following Jehovah by YOUR building for yourselves an altar, that YOU may rebel today against Jehovah?  (The people that the Bible always spoke to were Jehovah God’s Heavenly, earthly and so-called evil children. An altar is a place of worship, so we can quite safely assume that today we have churches (altars) that house the evil so-called false children, and their false religions and their interpretations of the Bible. One manual for each model of motorcar, likewise one specialised agency to ensure every manual is adhered to. Just so ONE manual, the Bible, for mankind and written by the Maker, through inspired writers. So there is only one true translation and one true religion that exists today and since the beginning of our creation.)

Judges 2:11

And the sons of Israel fell to doing what was bad in the eyes of Jehovah and serving the Ba’als. (Serving the Ba’als was actually being part of a false religion and that most probably mostly being done unwittingly as most humans do not really desire to blatantly go against Jehovah God openly. I think that fear would most probably prevent them doing that. But the religious leaders saw the opportunity of making a “financial killing” and misled people that were only too willing to follow as it suited them and “tickled their ears”. They are however going to be destroyed eternally. The onus is on all people to ensure that they cling to the one and only true religion)

Judges 2:17

And even to their judges they did not listen, but they had immoral intercourse with other gods and went bowing down to them. They quickly turned aside from the way in which their forefathers had walked by obeying the commandments of Jehovah. They did not do like that. (Immoral intercourse in the Bible mostly refers to the persons that are supposed to be adhering to true religion but that are being intimately involved with the false doctrines of false religion.)

1 Samuel 8:3

And his sons did not walk in his ways, but they were inclined to follow unjust profit and would accept a bribe and pervert judgment.

1 Samuel 8:5

5 and said to him: “Look! You yourself have grown old, but your own sons have not walked in your ways. Now do appoint for us a king to judge us like all the nations.” (Until the appointment of the first king, Jehovah God ruled as King over Israel.)

1 Samuel 8: 7

Then Jehovah said to Samuel: “Listen to the voice of the people as respects all that they say to you; for it is not you whom they have rejected, but it is I whom they have rejected from being king over them. (The older men approached Samuel and sinned by asking for an earthly king, thus rejecting their Heavenly King. Since then Jehovah God was not responsible for the guidance of mankind, except those who chose to obey Him rather than to obey men. The invitation to love and obey Jehovah God was, and still is, open to those who are still alive, the whole of mankind, and the choice is simply theirs to make. Mankind is not realising that it is not only their own lives that are at stake, but also those of their loved ones as well. It would be wise for them to know what they are rejecting, irrespective of the decision that has to be made. So much more then will it matter when the decision concerns life or death, for them and their loved ones.)

1 Samuel 12:18 & 19

18 Upon that Samuel called to Jehovah, and Jehovah proceeded to give thunders and rain on that day, so that all the people were greatly in fear of Jehovah and of Samuel 19 And all the people began to say to Samuel: “Pray in behalf of your servants to Jehovah your God, as we do not want to die; because we have added to all our sins an evil in asking for ourselves a king.” (Jehovah God displayed a minor iota of His ultimate power, and the earthly kings were unable, as today, to protect their subjects, and soon their subjects sped to Samuel to ask Jehovah God to not destroy them, and they quite willingly and freely admitted that they had sinned in asking for an earthly king)

1 Samuel 14:32

And the people began darting greedily at the spoil and taking sheep and cattle and calves and slaughtering them on the earth, and the people fell to eating along with the blood. (A direct sin against Jehovah God, as Jehovah God commanded that humans should abstain from blood. If a doctor informs that a person should abstain from alcohol as it will be bad for him to drink, then that same doctor will inform him that injecting alcohol directly into his bloodstream would be far more dangerous. So blood transfusion would be just as sinful as the drinking of blood. In both instances the human body would absorb the blood. Jehovah God does not want foreign blood in YOUR body.)

1 Kings 2:32

And Jehovah will certainly bring back his blood upon his own head, because he fell upon two men more righteous and better than he was, and he proceeded to kill them with the sword, when my father David himself had not known of it, namely, Ab’ner the son of Ner the chief of the army of Israel and A·ma’sa the son of Je ‘ther the chief of the army of Judah. (Jehovah God will destroy all evil persons, but woe to the persons that bring down bad upon His loved ones, especially those with “innocent” blood. Just as in the past, so even shortly, He will avenge those that had innocent blood, and destroy all other evil people.)

1 Kings 19:18

And I have let seven thousand remain in Israel, all the knees that have not bent down to Ba’al, and every mouth that has not kissed him. (Jehovah God will reward those who through love obey Him.)

2 Kings 17:15

and they continued rejecting his regulations and his covenant that he had concluded with their forefathers and his reminders with which he had warned them, and they went following vain idols and became vain themselves, even in imitation of the nations that were all around them, concerning whom Jehovah had commanded them not to do like them; (Jehovah God warned, and reminded, Israel, but they still paid no heed. Today, via the media, television and daily experiences we are reminded that this is not what Jehovah God had in mind when He created the human race and the world, but they just are not interested. Amazingly, though, it is quite disturbing to see how often Jehovah God is approached when they are in danger, or need.)

2 Kings 17:27 – 34

Down to this day they are doing according to their former religions. There were none fearing Jehovah and none doing according to his statutes and his judicial decisions and the law and the commandment that Jehovah had commanded the sons of Jacob, whose name he made Israel; (In verse 27 the priests were told to teach the religion of Jehovah God, but the further verses inform how the false religions were created, and how until today, the people do according to their former religions. The Bible even states that their different religions were country, area and culture bound, each with their own god.)

2 Kings 18:4

He it was that removed the high places and broke the sacred pillars to pieces and cut down the sacred pole and crushed to pieces the copper serpent that Moses had made; for down to those days the sons of Israel had continually been making sacrificial smoke to it, and it used to be called the copper serpent-idol.

1 Chronicles 5:25

And they began to act unfaithfully toward the God of their forefathers and went having immoral intercourse with the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God had annihilated from before them. (Again the Bible uses the terminology of immoral intercourse as pertaining to so-called Christians who promise faithfulness and loyalty to Jehovah God, but serve many other gods, that  preach false teachings and make gods of sport, actors and actresses, money, etc.)

1 Chronicles 21:1

And Satan proceeded to stand up against Israel and to incite David to number Israel. (Nobody is free from being influenced by Satan as shown in this verse, so it for the humans to ensure that they are ever careful not to be conned by the super con-artist of all time. The only way possible, is to obtain accurate Bible knowledge, thereby realising what your Heavenly Father means to you, and realising His love, care and provisions that He desires you to take. Then you will reciprocate that love, pray to Him regularly and often. The word prayer is indicative of a heart to heart discussion with Jehovah God, and also that such discussions are with the required reverence and respect that Jehovah God deserves. Surely if one is happy then sharing that happy feeling with Jehovah God would assist in endearing one to Him, and when Jehovah God is always near then Satan surely is not. Requesting Jehovah God’s assistance, in prayer, to be aware of Satan’s wiles, is a strong weapon.)

2 Chronicles 13:1, 7

1 In the eighteenth year of King Jer·o·bo’am it was that A·bi’jah began to reign over Judah. 7 And idle men, good-for- nothing fellows, kept collecting themselves together by him. Finally they proved superior to Re.ho.bo’am the son of Sol’o·mon, when Re·ho·bo’am himself happened to be young and fainthearted, and he did not hold his own against them. (It is definitely a requirement to obtain accurate Bible knowledge of Jehovah God’s Word. Then one will not be fainthearted, being too convinced that their Heavenly Father is on their side.)

2 Chronicles 21:11

He himself also had made high places on the mountains of Judah, that he might cause the inhabitants of Jerusalem to have immoral intercourse, and that he might drive Judah away. (The immoral intercourse in the “high places” mentioned are the churches built that advocate false doctrines. Immoral has the meaning in this context of being without moral justification, and without good moral qualities, and here combined with the word prostitution, also indicates that the perpetrators do these deceitful acts for material gain, while pretending to be faithful and loyal to the TRUE God, Jehovah.)

2 Chronicles 36:12

And he continued to do what was bad in the eyes of Jehovah his God. He did not humble himself on account of Jeremiah the prophet at the order of Jehovah. (Direct disobedience.)

Nehemiah 9:26

“However, they became disobedient and rebelled against you and kept casting your law behind their back, and your own prophets they killed, who bore witness against them to bring them back to you; and they went on committing acts of great disrespect. (It was not the heathens or disbelievers that became murderers of Jehovah God’s people, but the priests and all the believers of the untruths that the priests conjured up. The murderers knew Jehovah God’s laws and disobeyed them totally.)

Psalm 10:3

For the wicked has praised himself over the selfish longing of his soul, And the one making undue profit has blessed himself; He has disrespected Jehovah. (Any person that lives mostly for himself and is prepared to make unjust profit from another, acts against Jehovah God and is doomed for destruction.)

Proverbs 12:10

The righteous one is caring for the soul of his domestic animal, but the mercies of the wicked ones are cruel.

Proverbs 18:5

The showing of partiality to the wicked one is not good, nor the turning aside of the righteous one in judgement.

Proverbs 24:9

The loose conduct of foolishness is sin, and a ridiculer is something detestable to mankind.

Proverbs 30:17

The eye that holds a father in derision and that despises obedience to a mother-the ravens of the torrent valley will pick it out and the sons of the eagle will eat it up.

Proverbs 18:5

The showing of partiality to the wicked one is not good, nor the turning aside of the righteous one in judgement. (The Bible states categorically that Jehovah God, and thus also Jesus, shun partiality, and Jesus was sent, not only as a ransom, but also an example of how we should strive to live.)

Isaiah 1:2 & 3

2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken: “Sons I have brought up and raised, but they themselves brought up and raised, but they themselves have revolted against me. 3 A bull well knows its buyer, and the ass the manger of its owner; Israel itself has not known, my own people have not behaved understandingly.” (Because animals do not rely on their own understanding, they live nearer to Jehovah God’s ways. They appreciate who cares for, shelters and feeds them. Even when not receiving loving care, they accept their earthly masters. How much more should humans appreciate their Heavenly Master, who will always apply loving care to those deserving. The so-called Christians do not really know Jehovah God or do His will, and many billions are losing interest due to the false expectations. Also, all the world’s problems are self-inflicted because they “revolted” against Jehovah God.)

Isaiah 6:9 & 10

9 And he went on to say: “Go, and you must say to this people, ‘Hear again and again, O men, but do not understand; and see again and again, but do not get any knowledge.’ 10 Make the heart of this people unreceptive, and make their very ears unresponsive, and paste their very eyes together, that they may not see with their eyes and with their ears they may not hear, and that their own heart may not understand and that they may not actually turn back and get healing for themselves.” (Isaiah 6:9 & 10 are indicative of Jehovah God’s anger, and because He Is so compassionate, He does not wish for the evil people to show the slightest understanding  because they will then use their new-found knowledge to further twist the meanings of the Scripture, and thus have a better insight of how to do so.)

Isaiah 9 16 – 19

16 And those who are leading this people on prove to be the ones causing [them] to wander; and those of them who are being led on, the ones who are being confused. 17 That is why Jehovah will not rejoice even over their young men, and upon their fatherless boys and upon their widows he will have no mercy; because all of them are apostates and evildoers and every mouth is speaking senselessness. In view of all this his anger has not turned back, but his hand is stretched out still. 18 For wickedness has become aflame just like a fire; thornbushes and weeds it will eat up. And it will catch fire in the thickets of the forest, and they will be borne aloft as the billowing of smoke. 19 In the fury of Jehovah of armies the land has been set afire, and the people will become as food for the fire. No one will show compassion even on his brother. (Verse 16 states categorically that the ministers of all the false religions are the ones that are misleading their members. In the verses from 16 to 19 it is shown that it will be necessitated that Jehovah God does not show mercy because it is the faithful ones that have to be protected. In Verse 19 the Bible mentions no brotherly compassion, so with the battle of Armageddon it could be most likely, and practical, that all evil people will slay one another worldwide, and all in the same period of time. In the past Jehovah God used the enemies of His people to slaughter each other, in order to protect the mere minority that loved and served Him. The practicability of this assumption is the most feasible solution, as there will be abrupt and complete annihilation done very speedily. It can also be assumed that when the rains of Noah’s Flood came down, and the people realised that their destruction was imminent, that those in the vicinity tried, although in vain, to enter the Ark. That was why Jehovah God had sealed it. There was absolutely no way of entering. It can also with fair certainty be assumed that they callously fought each other, even fatally, to try to escape. In our very modern and civilised society, killing almost always occurs when panic strikes, and own safety is involved. So why would Jehovah God not be prepared to utilise this vicious side of Satan’s followers to destroy each other. It is almost totally acceptable that all persons that are in Heaven since 1914, Jesus included, cannot leave the confines of Heaven ever again. Jehovah God could kill each and every living being with bolts of lightning, or many other means. It just seems right that the persons in Heaven would not have to be a part of any earthly destruction as they are above that standard of action. They will be glad for the destruction of the sinful parts of Satan’s followers, but also grievous of the necessity thereof, due to the choices made by those destroyed. It just does not seem possible that they will be actively involved.)

Isaiah 29:13

And Jehovah says: “For the reason that this people have come near with their mouth, and they have glorified me merely with their lips, and they have removed their heart itself far away from me, and their fear toward me becomes men’s commandment that is being taught, (Here the Bible mentions that the people do not fear Jehovah God anymore, and the commandments of men are being taught, naturally to so-called Christians by so-called Christians, and are not Jehovah God’s teachings anymore. Also, being very truthful, the majority of people attend church but as soon as they leave, then they leave Jehovah God and His desires behind as well. Most people tell you not to talk to them about religion as they have their own religion. The truth is that they do not really want to talk about religion as they are mostly concerned that they will have to actually become more involved. Now, according to most them, there is not time for that, they are busy enough as it is.)

Isaiah 30:9

For it is a rebellious people, untruthful sons, sons who have been unwilling to hear the law of Jehovah; (There are billions of people, and more, that are really and truly unwilling to hear Jehovah God’s law, even though they presume to be true believers and often quote from Jehovah God’s law to suit themselves.)

Isaiah 30:10 & 11

10 who have said to the ones seeing, ‘YOU must not see,’ and to the ones having visions, ‘YOU must not envision for us any straightforward things. Speak to us smooth things; envision deceptive things. 11 Turn aside from the way; deviate from the path. Cause the Holy One of Israel to cease just on account of us.’” (False preachers are told to preach what the people want to hear, or what “tickles” their ears, by the people themselves.)

Isaiah 30:21

And your own ears will hear a word behind you saying: “This is the way. Walk in it, YOU people, in case YOU people should go to the right or in case YOU should go to the left.

Isaiah 57:11

“Whom did you become frightened at and begin to fear, so that you took up lying? But I was not the one that you remembered. You took nothing to your heart. Was I not keeping silent and hiding matters? So you were in no fear even of me. (Jehovah God does not punish immediately, that is why people keep sinning, as they think they are getting away with sinning, and that their lies get them covered up. Jehovah God also warns that the fear that they feel for humans is unhealthy, and they should rather be in fear of Him, as He will have no choice but to destroy them if they pose a threat to His real children, and their future.)

Isaiah 65:11

“But YOU men are those leaving Jehovah, those forgetting my holy mountain, those setting in order a table for the god of Good Luck and those filling up mixed wine for the god of Destiny.  (True to continuity of one belief being correct and always constant, the Bible again warns about gambling, and so severely as to confirm that it is connected to a god of luck, the god being created by the greed of the gambler. Also the god of Destiny is mentioned which is being referred to as a god because it is in opposition to Jehovah God. Fatalism and the god of Destiny are one and the same thing, and many people link them to Jehovah God by saying that He has a purpose for everyone in life.)

Isaiah 66:3 & 4

3 “The one slaughtering the bull is as one striking down a man. The one sacrificing the sheep is as one breaking the neck of a dog. The one offering up a gift-the blood of a pig! The one presenting a memorial of frankincense is as one saying a blessing with uncanny words. They are also the ones that have chosen their own ways, and in their disgusting things their very soul has taken a delight. 4 I myself, in turn, shall choose ways of ill-treating them; and the things frightful to them I shall bring upon them; for the reason that I called, but there was no one answering; I spoke, but there were none that listened; and they kept on doing what was bad in my eyes, and the thing in which I took no delight they chose.”

Jeremiah 2:7

And I gradually brought YOU to a land of the orchard, to eat its fruitage and its good things. But YOU came in and defiled my land; and my own inheritance YOU made something detestable. . .

Jeremiah 3:21

On the beaten paths there has been heard a sound, the weeping, the entreaties of the sons of Israel. For they have twisted their way; they have forgotten Jehovah their God. . . (Jehovah God himself declares that there are manufactured twisted ways, in other words, false religion.)

Jeremiah 6:13

“For from the least one of them even to the greatest one of them, every one is making for himself unjust gain; and from the prophet even to the priest, each one is acting falsely. . .

Jeremiah 7:31

And they have built the high places of To´pheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hin´nom, in order to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, a thing that I had not commanded and that had not come up into my heart. . . (The burning of their children was a sacrificial act that was implemented by certain false religious groups in direct contrast to the will of Jehovah God. When being read in the Bible it seems like an act “in the distance”, meaning that it was not actually happening, but only that an altar had been built. The sadistic practice really happened, and just as people today justify the religions that they believe in, just so did those leaders do. “Just as long as you believe, then you will be saved”. Poor children! What was their future? An extremely painful death by fire and a sadistic practice by evil and misguided people.)

Jeremiah 8:10 – 12

10 Therefore I shall give their wives to other men, their fields to those taking possession; for, from the least one even to the greatest one, each one is making unjust gain; from the prophet even to the priest, each one is acting falsely. . . 11 And they try to heal the breakdown of the daughter of my people lightly, saying: “There is peace!” when there is no peace. . . 12 Did they feel shame because they had done even what was detestable? For one thing, they positively could not feel ashamed; for another thing, they did not know even how to feel humiliated. . . (A confirmation of Jeremiah 6:13 – 15 to avoid any misunderstanding. There is a total inclusion of all the leaders of all false religions, their aim to deceive and lie, and the reason: their love of money. It is actually quite frightening that Jehovah God Himself certifies that these false leaders have no conscience at all, so much so that they cannot be humiliated at all. If Jehovah God says so, then it is absolute truth.)

Jeremiah 23:11

“For both the prophet and the priest themselves have become polluted. Also in my own house I have found their badness,” is the utterance of Jehovah. . . (Repeat of the evil intentions and despicable attitudes and actions of false religious leaders in the house of the true God.)

Ezekiel 16:32

In the case of the wife that commits adultery, she takes strangers instead of her own husband.

Ezekiel 33:4 & 5

4 and the hearer actually hears the sound of the horn but he takes no warning at all, and a sword comes and takes him away, his own blood will come to be upon his own head. . . 5 The sound of the horn he heard, but he took no warning. His own blood will come to be upon his own self. And had he himself taken warning, his own soul would have escaped.

Ezekiel 44:10

‘But as for the Levites who got far away from me when Israel, who wandered away from me, wandered after their dungy idols, they must also bear their error.

Hosea 3:1

And Jehovah went on to say to me: “Go once again, love a woman loved by a companion and committing adultery, as in the case of Jehovah’s love for the sons of Israel while they are turning to other gods and are loving raisin cakes.” (There is a form of adultery that is not physical, as only having human bodies involved. The form of adultery that is not physical is when persons advocate solemn love to the One and Only True God, but yet follow teachings that are not from Jehovah God Himself. This is the adultery that will really mean total destruction if continuously pursued. Physical adultery is not acceptable to Jehovah God, but is a direct following of one’s own personal fleshly desires. Physical adultery is punishable by destruction if also continuously pursued without change and repentance, but at least, lying about Jehovah God was not involved.)

Hosea 6:9

And as in the lying in wait for a man, the association of priests are marauding bands. By the wayside they commit murder at She´chem, because they have carried on nothing but loose conduct. (It is important once again to remember that only eight persons passed through the Flood of Noah’s day, and it is acceptable that there must have been many, many priests and so-called prophets, and places where so- called true religion was practised, such as temples, etc. Throughout the Bible are accusations that the priests and prophets were, most of them, serving Satan and misleading the “sheep” entrusted to them. A solid reason why only eight people were found acceptable to Jehovah God is derived from the explanation given.)

Zechariah 1:4

“‘Do not become like YOUR fathers to whom the former prophets called, saying: “This is what Jehovah of armies has said, ‘Return, please, from YOUR bad ways and from YOUR bad dealings. ‘” But they did not listen, and they paid no attention to me,’ is the utterance of Jehovah. (In the days when Jehovah God’s actual prophets warned the people, they did as people today, they disobeyed. Also, note that there were prophets that really served Jehovah God, but they were very few, and anyone who studies or reads the Bible properly will realise that there were, and are, far more false prophets, then and now.)

Zechariah 8:10

For before those days there were no wages for mankind made to exist; and as for the wages of domestic animals, there was no such thing; and to the one going out and to the one coming in there was no peace because of the adversary, as I kept thrusting all mankind against one another.’

Malachi 2:8

“But YOU men—YOU have turned aside from the way. YOU have caused many to stumble in the law. YOU have ruined the covenant of Le´vi,” Jehovah of armies has said.

Luke 7:30

But the Pharisees and those versed in the Law disregarded the counsel of God to them, they not having been baptized by him.)

Luke 10:16

“He that listens to YOU listens to me [too]. And he that disregards YOU disregards me [too]. Moreover, he that disregards me disregards [also] him that sent me forth.” (Jesus states that the persons who disregard the instructions that he has allocated to his true followers, also disregard him, and then he further states that Jehovah God is also disregarded. Not logic for Jesus to send himself.)

Luke 13:34

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her—how often I wanted to gather your children together in the manner that a hen gathers her brood of chicks under her wings, but YOU people did not want [it]!

Luke 16:10

The person faithful in what is least is faithful also in much, and the person unrighteous in what is least is unrighteous also in much.

Luke 16:31

But he said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone rises from the dead.’”

Luke 17:33

Whoever seeks to keep his soul safe for himself will lose it, but whoever loses it will preserve it alive. (This is also absolute truth if you accept a blood transfusion to save your life.)

Acts 5:29

In answer Peter and the [other] apostles said: “We must obey God as ruler rather than men.

Romans 1:26 & 27

26 That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature; 27 and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error.

Romans 1:32

Although these know full well the righteous decree of God, that those practicing such things are deserving of death, they not only keep on doing them but also consent with those practicing them.

Galatians 5:19 – 21

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, and they are fornication, uncleanness, loose conduct, 20 idolatry, practice of spiritism, enmities, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, contentions, divisions, sects, 21 envies, drunken bouts, revelries, and things like these. As to these things I am forewarning YOU, the same way as I did forewarn YOU, that those who practice such things will not inherit God’s kingdom. (This sounds just like the world we know that is full of all the mentioned atrocities.)

1 Timothy 2:14 & 15

14 Also, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was thoroughly deceived and came to be in transgression. 15 However, she will be kept safe through childbearing, provided they continue in faith and love and sanctification along with soundness of mind. (Verse 14 seems to indicate that Eve definitely did not willingly sin.)

 Timothy 4:1 – 5

1 However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons, 2 by the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, marked in their conscience as with a branding iron; 3 forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be partaken of with thanksgiving by those who have faith and accurately know the truth. 4 The reason for this is that every creation of God is fine, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for it is sanctified through God’s word and prayer over [it]. (1 Tim 4:1 – 5 warns of all the people that will fall away due to false teachings, such as the Trinity, Evolution – the Big Bang, not to eat this or that, not to marry, not to abstain from blood, etc. Also, there is the love of money, traditions, love of oneself, no love for others, greed, unjust profit, and many more snares.)

1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains.

2 Timothy 4:2 – 4

2 preach the word, be at it urgently in favourable season, in troublesome season, reprove, reprimand, exhort, with all long-suffering and [art of] teaching. 3 For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, whereas they will be turned aside to false stories. (Not preaching is being disobedient to Jehovah God. So that is one of the commands that the Jehovah’s Witnesses obey.)

Hebrews 3:19

So we see that they could not enter in because of lack of faith.

Hebrews 6:4 – 7

4 For it is impossible as regards those who have once for all been enlightened, and who have tasted the heavenly free gift, and who have become partakers of holy spirit, 5 and who have tasted the fine word of God and powers of the coming system of things, 6 but who have fallen away, to revive them again to repentance, because they impale the Son of God afresh for themselves and expose him to public shame. 7 For example, the ground that drinks in the rain which often comes upon it, and that then brings forth vegetation suitable to those for whom it is also cultivated, receives in return a blessing from God. (Hebrews 6:4 – 7 it is impossible for people to have known the real truth and have partaken of the Holy Spirit, and who have gained accurate knowledge and understanding, to fall away from the truth and then repent and receive a blessing from Jehovah God. It is equal to impaling Jesus for a second time. The person knew Jesus paid for his sins, and then very willingly sinned again. The willingness to sin again is the problem. Now, for each new wilful sin, Jesus is expected to answer for. The 144 000 are being spoken about.)

Hebrews 10:25 & 26

25 not forsaking the gathering of ourselves together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as YOU behold the day drawing near. 26 For if we practice sin wilfully after having received the accurate knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice for sins left, (The 144 000 Heavenly Class especially spoken about, but also others as well that keep on sinning.)

James 1:13 – 15

13 When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone. 14 But each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin; in turn, sin, when it has been accomplished, brings forth death. (Too often than not, people say “this or that happened, but it is most probably part of God’s plan for me” or “my child was killed, but God surely has a better future, and better conditions, planned for him”. These Scriptures, without doubt, absolve Jehovah God from any pain or suffering that we as humans experience today. These Scriptures state precisely where the blame of being “tried” should be placed. The results of wrong desires are highlighted in these Scriptures, because, if you have accurate knowledge, faith and do Jehovah God’s explicit will to the best of your ability, then the following would be more accurate to say “I have an unsafe, dangerous and evil temporary dwelling, but my God and Father is soon going to change that, so whatever happens to me here is only temporary by nature.)

2 Peter 2:21 & 22

21 For it would have been better for them not to have accurately known the path of righteousness than after knowing it accurately to turn away from the holy commandment delivered to them. 22 The saying of the true proverb has happened to them: “The dog has returned to its own vomit, and the sow that was bathed to rolling in the mire.”

1 John 1:8

If we make the statement: “We have no sin,” we are misleading ourselves and the truth is not in us.

1 John 1:10

If we make the statement: “We have not sinned,” we are making him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:8 & 10 warns that people must not be self-righteous, because the two verses are explicit enough to verify that we are calling Jehovah God a liar if we say we have not sinned or do not sin, and that we do not have any truth in us at all if we do say that.)

Jude 4

My reason is that certain men have slipped in who have long ago been appointed by the Scriptures to this judgment, ungodly men, turning the undeserved kindness of our God into an excuse for loose conduct and proving false to our only Owner and Lord, Jesus Christ. (The Bible clearly states that there are false teachers and ministers that have slipped into the so-called houses of Jehovah God, and because Jehovah God has undeserved kindness and patience, they use the Bible for their evil purposes, such as loose conduct and unjust gain. The Bible also states that people continue sinning because Jehovah God does not mete out immediate punishment. Jehovah God wants people who willingly want to love and need and serve Him.)

Jude 7

So too Sod´om and Go·mor´rah and the cities about them, after they in the same manner as the foregoing ones had committed fornication excessively and gone out after flesh for unnatural use, are placed before [us] as a [warning] example by undergoing the judicial punishment of everlasting fire.

Revelation 9:4

And they were told to harm no vegetation of the earth nor any green thing nor any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. (This Scripture supports my interpretation that the evil people will massacre each other at the event of Armageddon, and Jehovah God will enable the destruction of those that are evil , without Heavenly persons being involved or any Heavenly intervention.)

Revelation 9:20 & 21

20 But the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands, so that they should not worship the demons and the idols of gold and silver and copper and stone and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; 21 and they did not repent of their murders nor of their spiritistic practices nor of their fornication nor of their thefts.
