Why I Am NOT A Jehovah's Witness Part V

**The Jehovah's Witnesses deny the bodily and visible return of Jesus Christ.

The Bible (as well as their version) declares His bodily and visible return.

Revelation 1:7 (KJB) "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth wail because of him. Even so, Amen."
(NWT) "Look! He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, and those who pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth will beat themselves in grief because of him. Yes, Amen."

I Thessalonians 4:16-17 (KJB) "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
(NWT) "because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel's voice and with God's trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first. (17) Afterward we the living who are surviving will, together with them, be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and thus we shall always be with the Lord."

The testimony of the angels declare it.

Acts 1:10-11 (KJB) "And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; (11) Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."
(NWT) "And as they were gazing into the sky while he was on his way, also , look! two men in white garments stood alongside them, (11) and they said: "Men of Gal'i-lee, why do YOU stand looking into the sky? This Jesus who was received up from YOU into the sky will come thus in the same manner as YOU Have beheld him going into the sky."

How can anyone claim that Jesus will not return visibly and bodily when the Scripture clearly shows otherwise. Even the Jehovah's Witnesses own version of the Bible says that. I think the Jehovah's Witnesses need to read their book in its entirety. Seems that they don't have a leg to stand on with anything they believe.

Come back...there is much more to come.

Sis. Mimi...you are very welcome. It is creating some conflicting comments from JWs. My husband has told me not to publish them though. I am on here to teach those who are unlearned about the false doctrine of the JWs. That is it. I do not desire to start any wars or arguments.

There will be posts coming up though that they cannot dispute. Ones that I personally have stumped the JWs with when talking with them at my door or in public. So stay tuned.

Not only is the Lord Jesus Christ coming back one day to judge this world, He is coming for His bride - that is our blessed hope and His glorious appearing. Looking forward to it! This world keeps getting darker.
