“Yahweh has taken his place to contend; He stands to judge peoples.”

To the Sheep the comforting words are given, “It will go well with you.” To the Goats the terrifying words are given, “It will go ill with you.”

The Gospel According to St. Isaiah- Chapter 3 Part 1

Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier

In this lecture we learn that because Jerusalem refused to listen to the Word of God, the LORD will send a famine of the Word on the land. Without bread and water the body will not survive. However, man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD. Without the Word of God, the soul will not survive.

The Gospel According to St. Isaiah- Chapter 2 Part 2

Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier

In this chapter we are taught that Yahweh alone will be exalted. Those who follow false gods become like them, that is, unable to hear God’s word or see the revelation of the Word of God.

Isaiah- Chapter 2 Part 2

Watch Out for Watch Tower Deception on Jesus Creating All “Other” Things

Watchtower Watch Out

The Watchtower organization teaches:

Jehovah only made one thing: Jesus. Jesus was the only one created by God and that is why he is called God’s “only-begotten” Son (see previous post on what “only-begotten” means). After Jesus was created he “helped” in the creation of all other things.

The Bible teaches:

“Thus says Jehovah, your Redeemer, who formed you from the womb: “I am Jehovah, who made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by Myself” (Isaiah 44:24).

We know from the Bible that Jehovah made all things. Jehovah created the heavens and the earth alone. Jehovah says, “My hand laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I call to them, they stand forth together” (Isaiah 48:13). Then in the New Testament scriptures, the Father declares the Son to be Jehovah. The Father says to Jesus, “And, “You, Jehovah, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands” (Hebrews 1:10). The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus is Jehovah who created all things.

The Watchtower organization deceptively mistranslates Colossians chapter one in order for the text to sound like their false teaching that Jesus created all “other things” and not all things. The New World Translation renders the passage in this way,

because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist,

Note the deception of the Watchtower organization in their translation of this passage. In order to twist the Bible to match their teachings they translate “all things” as “all other things.” They teach that the Son of God is a created being and not the Creator. Therefore they have to change the Bible text in order for the text to agree with their false teaching.

The Bible clearly states that Jesus is the Creator of all things. The Bible does not say that He created “all other things.” The Bible clearly teaches that He created “all things.”  “All things” means all created things. The Son of God is not a created thing. The Apostles clearly teach that Christ is the Creator of all things that were created.

The Apostle Paul teaches:

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:16–17).

The Apostle John teaches, “All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:3). “All things” means all things that were created. There is nothing that He did not create. Jesus cannot be part of creation. He is the Creator of all things. Thus John writes, “He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him” (John 1:10). The world was created by Jesus. He is not of creation. He is the Creator of the world.

The Bible teaches that Jehovah created all things (Isaiah 44:24). The Father declares the Son to be Jehovah who created all things (Hebrews 1:10). The Apostles taught the Jesus is Jehovah (The Entire New Testament Scriptures).

The Apostle Paul teaches:

“But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:3–4)

The Watchtower organization teaches a different Jehovah and a different Jesus.

Isaiah writes, “For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem” (Isaiah 2:3). In this passage, we learn about the sending out of the Apostles to make disciples of all nations by baptizing them and teaching them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of Holy Spirit.
