Questions regarding the holy spirit

Question #31: If the Holy Spirit is only Jehovah's active force, why does the Holy Spirit speak and use the pronouns "I" and "me" about himself in places like Acts 13:2 and Hebrews 3:7-11?  It is a literary device called personification. Various things are personified in the Bible. For example, the 8th chapter of Proverbs personifies wisdom. In the 5th chapter of Romans Paul refers to death as a [...]

His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives

This is a continuation of a series of questions for Jehovah’s Witnesses. QUESTION #28 - If Jehovah is a spirit who only lives in heaven and who cannot ever be seen, how is it possible for him to reside in Jerusalem later (Zechariah 2:10-11)?

Michael the Archangel and Jesus Christ

QUESTION #17 - According to Revelation 22:6, Jehovah sent his angel. However, several verses later in the same chapter at Revelation 22:16, it says Jesus sent his angel. How can this be true unless Jesus is Jehovah? Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jehovah has given Jesus all authority, in heaven and on earth. That means Jesus has been given authority over Jehovah’s angels. They follow his [...]

More Trinity Questions for Jehovah’s Witnesses

QUESTION #13 - According to Revelation 1:7-8, Jesus is called the Alpha and Omega, Jehovah God, and the Almighty. We know it is Jesus because in verse 7 it says he was pierced.

Ignorant and unstable persons distort the truth

QUESTION #10 - In your Kingdom Interlinear Translation of John 14:14, it shows the word 'me' in the original text that is missing. A word for word literal translation would be something like, "if ever anything you should ask me in the name of me, this shall I do." So if translated correctly, it means we can pray to Jesus himself in his name. If we [...]

ANSWER - This is easily explained by those who know the Scriptures. First, Jesus is Lord because the Lord Jehovah appointed him to be such. This [...]

The Coming of Christ in the Glory of Jehovah

QUESTION #8 - According to John 12:41, John says Isaiah saw Jesus' glory and spoke about him. The New World Translation has a cross reference pointing back to Isaiah 6:1,8. There, Isaiah saw Jehovah and spoke about him. There is even a cross reference pointing to John 12:41. So the Watchtower agrees that these scriptures are related. How can both passages of scripture be true unless [...]

Stop being unbelieving but become believing

QUESTION #5 - Thomas called Jesus 'God' with a big 'G' at John 20:28. Jesus not only failed to correct Thomas, but he actually confirmed that Thomas was correct. How can this be, if Jesus is not God?
