Dangerous Prayers

Yes God hears our prayers. Pretty dangerous huh?

Last month I shared an article titled Pray Without Ceasing which was basically an invitation for our Prayer Meetup coupled with a desire that God would build up that ministry. I have felt for some time that we need a whole lot more prayer in our outreach to Jehovah’s Witnesses since the websites and Facebook groups are already FLOODED with enough discussion. I have posted encouragement to pray plenty of times on the message board of our Prayer Meetup group, but when no one is logging on to it, the message goes unread. So I began emailing encouragement to our members instead. This proved to be valuable. Just prior to our monthly prayer meeting, I shared a personal experience along with a reminder about the upcoming September prayer service. I hope my experience along with the comments I received encourage you also to pray some dangerous prayers. Continue reading “Dangerous Prayers”

Pray Without Ceasing

I’m new to this site and from what I have seen so far I think this is fantastic! The power of prayer should never be under estimated. I am very excited to be able to talk with others who have been delivered. I pray that all our loved ones who are still involved with the Witnesses will see Christ in us through our example, I pray that we are equipped by the Holy Spirit to live as Christ lived.” — Craig

Are you a Christian who has a loved one involved in a cult or false religion? Are any of your family members caught up in a pseudo-christian belief system, such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons? We have a particular prayer focus for people struggling with issues in coming out of these groups and also provide a prayer covering for those who minister to them.

God Does The Work For Us

Too many Christmas goodies and late evenings had me off schedule and extending my morning coffee ’til noon in my pajamas. With my husband taking extra days off from work and a few trips tossed in, I struggled to remember what day it was. Perhaps you can relate to the holiday vacation slump? So December was winding down with a prayer for renewed energy since I personally felt like a sloth. But on the last Tuesday of 2015, a morning phone call turned into an entire day of connections and encouragement. Just the energy I needed. Continue reading “God Does The Work For Us”

Interview with Christy Darlington

You will have a tool to add to your toolbox when Christy Darlington from Witnesses for Jesus Inc answers the questions:

  • What doctrine have you found that any Christian in the simplest form can speak truth in love with a Jehovah’s Witness and show the fallacies of it?
  • How do you do it, what scriptures do you use?

Interview w/Christy Darlington on Hurting to Healing w/Melissa

Witnesses for Jesus, Inc. was founded by Christy who began her counter-cult career in 1994 when someone close to her began challenging her to consider the Mormon Church as simply another denomination of the Christian faith rather than as a false religion.

If God’s Name wasn’t known until Moses why is His name mentioned throughout Genesis?

JEHOVAH’S WITNESS ARGUMENT: God’s Name was Known Before Abraham

I have a question about Exodus 6:2-3 where God states “I am the LORD; and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as God Almighty, but by my name, LORD (YHWH), I did not make myself known to them.”  When I mentioned this passage to my Jehovah’s Witness friend, he countered by pointing out that all three of these men DID call on God’s Name. Genesis 12:8 says that Abraham “Built an alter there and called upon the name of the LORD (YHWH).” Genesis 28:16 says that “Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, ‘Surely the LORD (YHWH) is in this place, and I did not know it.’  In my New American Standard Bible, “LORD” is in all capital letters, so I’m assuming that represents the four consonants of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton “YHWH”. Is that right? What is your understanding of how the Exodus passage reconciles with the Genesis passages containing God’s name? Continue reading “If God’s Name wasn’t known until Moses why is His name mentioned throughout Genesis?”

Truth Takes a Licking and Keeps On Ticking

Sometimes when people come out of the Watchtower, their fear is that they will be expected by others to discredit ALL of it. But that’s not honest nor honoring of their decision at the time they accepted a free home Bible study from one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

I can honestly say I have some very good memories of my time spent as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and know I am a better person for it. Even though from this side of things I can call it a toxic cult, in reference to their own conversion to the Watchtower, I understand why some former members cling to it in their confusion claiming “the truth saved my life.” Continue reading “Truth Takes a Licking and Keeps On Ticking”

Do you know if Jesus was born on December 25?

The Bible doesn’t give a date for the “birth” of Jesus. Some claim it was in the Spring or Fall because shepherds were in the fields, but this is a misunderstanding of the Jewish winters that actually had shepherds in the fields around Jerusalem in the winter because winters in Israel are mild with light snow in the mountains. Continue reading “Do you know if Jesus was born on December 25?”

When did Jesus become the Christ?

Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that it was at Jesus’ baptism when the Holy Spirit came down as a dove that Jesus became the “Christ.” (See the Watchtower’s book, Holy Spirit–The force behind the coming new order, 1975, p. 90.) But this belief is inconsistent with the Biblical testimony that says that Jesus was proclaimed the “Christ” at His birth!  See these verses below: Continue reading “When did Jesus become the Christ?”

What is Jesus Doing Now?

JEHOVAH’S WITNESS QUESTION: “What is Jesus doing now?”

Some Jehovah’s Witnesses ask this question in an attempt to prove their end-time chronology.  Yet, Jehovah’s Witnesses completely misinterpret Daniel’s vision of the Tree at Daniel 4:10-16 for a prophetic set of years from 607 B.C. to 1914 C.E.   Continue reading “What is Jesus Doing Now?”

Will Suffering Ever End?

The hot topic on Meetups and Facebook discussions among former Jehovah’s Witnesses the past month was undoubtedly the investigation by the Royal Commission of Australia into over 1,000 sexual abuse cases within the Watchtower Society. While this is good publicity to share among those eagerly anticipating the membership of this cult to drop, I can’t help but think of the consciences of those who would “protect” the leadership who caused so much suffering to these victims. Don’t Jehovah’s Witnesses care about human suffering? Continue reading “Will Suffering Ever End?”
