What to Say When Jehovah’s Witnesses Come to Your Door

Here is how one should demonstrate to a Jehovah’s Witness that Christ is the same as the Lord God:

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?”**

This will be a perfect introduction in presenting the Gospel to a Witness. Asserting the fundamental truth of Christ’s divinity is central to the Gospel because only God in the Person of Jesus has the credentials to redeem us via his death and resurrection.

Witnesses need the Gospel just like everyone else. The approach to their evangelism should not be any different from the approach to other unbelievers.

  1. Great suggestions, Delight.

    I’m doing something right or wrong because they don’t come to my house anymore. As you know, they work in pairs. One is usually the scholar and the other is usually in training.

    I always ask them why there is a difference in our Bibles in John 1:1. Their version, The New World Translation, adds the article “a” which changes the entire meaning of Christ’s divinity, the exact thing you have mentioned needs to be dealt with.

    Here is a good link on the subject:

    God’s blessings my friend and thanks for another informative post…

    btw…I hope they come back some day. I love the opportunity.

  2. The question is rather: what do we do (with him) when L.G. says what he says “prophetically” every New Year’s Eve?! 🙂 Or, should we hide in shame?!

    PS–I am surprised you (and Gabi Bogdan) are so quiet about L.G.’s heretical (I’d call it idiotic) “prophetic” message, aka “Nimereala Profetica”. Is it b/c you don’t consider this guy influential in the Romanian community or is it b/c his name is not Joyce Myers, Benny Hinn, etc? lol 😉 Happy New Year!

    • Well, happy new Yr to you Val. LG’s perspective(s) are not a high point for Romanian Christians. If you were on FB, and I cannot find you anywhere there, you would see the criticism and the almost ridiculing.

      BTW, the blogs are kind of dead… the discussion has kind of moved to FB.

      If you ever join, I will add you to a theology group.

  3. Great post Delight. I find it interesting that they believe Jesus is a re-created spirit being. They like Word of Faith, believe Jesus died in His spirit and was born again (recreated). This tells me they do not believe in the actual resurrection of Jesus.I like Chris Reimer don’t answer the door anymore because it is just arguing with non-believers. It is sad because they spend a lot of time rehearsing their theology.

    It goes without saying one must believe that Jesus Christ was raised in the same physical body that died, His Spirit was sent by Him back to the Father. A spirit (personal) cannot die, it is either dead to the presence of God or alive in the presence of Almighty God.

    • It’s good you mentioned the physical resurrection because this is such a paramount belief in the Christian faith, that without our faith would be dead.

      You know, the last pope, Ratzinger wrote a book a couple years ago where many were surprised that he alludes to the resurrection as not being a bodily resurrection. He talks about the spiritual aspect of it. Weird. If they don’t believe the physical resurrection of Christ, how can they even believe a physical resurrection of our own?
