Stop being unbelieving but become believing

//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?

ANSWER – In my opinion one of the most important qualities for a person to cultivate is honesty. Honesty being, not just refraining from telling lies, but honesty in our inner-self, in our reasoning, in judging what is true. Meekness and honesty of heart are related. Unfortunately, though, we humans have a nearly unlimited capacity for deceiving ourselves, which makes honesty of heart all the more precious.

Jesus listed wicked reasonings as one of the sins that springs from the human heart and which defiles a person. Wicked reasonings are the opposite of meekness and honesty of heart. Most of the Jewish religious leaders, though not all, exemplified those who were wicked in their reasonings, as they always resisted Jesus, trying to trick or entrap him at every opportunity by using the law against him. Trinitarians similarly employ the dark art of wicked reasonings to entrap the unwary. Consider, now the verse in question.

It is ironic, indeed humorous, that trinitarians resort to citing Thomas as an authority, when in fact he was an unbeliever, at least until he was disabused of his disbelief. Having been unable to comprehend or accept Jesus’ own testimony that he was going to be handed over to the older men and killed, then raised on the third day, Thomas, along with the others, refused to accept the witness of Mary and Martha, that they had seen the risen Lord. The very fact that Jesus first appeared to two women was intended as a humiliating reproof to his proud apostles, who all abandoned him in his hour of trial. 

Later, though, Jesus appeared to the apostles as they were gathered in a room behind locked doors, even showing them his wounds; except Thomas was not present on that occasion. But when told that they too had seen the Lord Thomas refused to believe his fellow apostles. Thomas was so obstinate in his disbelief that he declared that the only way he would believe Christ had risen from the dead was if he could perform his own personal, post-mortem examination of the wounds in Jesus’ flesh.

Out of consideration for his disbelieving apostle eight days later Jesus again materialized before the apostles in a private room, cloaked with the flesh that bore the same wounds that had been inflicted upon him when he was cruelly hung upon the stake and speared in the side by the Roman guard. 

Jesus specifically approached Thomas and said to him: “Put your finger here, and see my hands, and take your hand and stick it into my side, and stop being unbelieving but become believing.”

It was at that point that the astonished apostle exclaimed: “My lord and my God!” Jesus responded with another rebuke, saying: “Because you have seen me have you believed? Happy are those who do not see and yet believe.”

But what exactly did Thomas disbelieve or believe? Did he really believe that Jesus was Almighty God? No. That is highly unlikely. After all, Thomas was not stupid. As one of the Twelve, Thomas had been with Jesus all during his ministry and he knew that Jesus was the Son of God. In fact, on one occasion Jesus asked the apostles straight-out who they thought he was. Peter spoke for them all when he said: “You are the Christ, Son of the living God,” to which Jesus responded: “Happy you are, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but my Father who is in the heavens did.” —Matthew 16:17

So, according to Jesus’ own witness, he is the Son of God and the apostles were in no doubt that God, Jesus’ Father, was in heaven. Thomas was not in doubt about Jesus’ identity. He had difficulty believing that Jesus had actually been raised from the dead and was alive. But to be sure, the resurrection of Christ from the dead to never die again is, after all, the very cornerstone of the Christian faith, which is why Jesus said “happy are those who do not see and yet believe.”

That Jesus’ identity as the Son was not in question is verified by the very next verse in the 20th chapter of John, which states: “To be sure, Jesus performed many other signs also before the disciples, which are not written down in this scroll. But these have been written down that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God, and that, because of believing, you may have life by means of his name.”

The reasoning of trinitarians is that had Thomas been wrong in declaring Jesus to be God, then Jesus would have corrected him. But that is wicked reasoning. As already pointed out, Jesus explained to the apostles that the Father had revealed to them that he was the Son. So, the exact opposite is true: Had Jesus thought that Thomas imagined he was Jehovah he most assuredly would have set him straight. More likely, though, had Thomas been so stupid as to believe that Jesus was Jehovah he probably would not have even qualified to be an apostle in the first place.

So why did Thomas exclaim “My Lord and my God!”

No doubt Thomas realized at the moment Christ materialized before him that he was in trouble. And when Jesus singled him out and told him to examine his wounds Thomas knew that Jesus was aware of his disbelief. He knew that the former apostle, Judas, had already self-destructed and that Peter had also denied knowing Jesus and his fellow apostles were bewildered and confused too.  Thomas surely knew his very faith was on the line as he stood before the resurrected Christ. So, he responded resolutely, unequivocally, declaring Jesus to be his absolute lord and master, without the slightest reservation or hint of doubt.

But why did Thomas refer to Jesus as his god? No doubt Thomas was aware that Jesus had resurrected a number of Israelites, including their friend Lazarus. But those people came back to life as the same people they were before they died, as humans. Jesus on the other hand, although appearing as a human, was not. After all, what human can walk through walls and appear in a room without unlocking a door? And yet, that is exactly what Jesus did. 

Although Jesus was clothed with flesh — obviously because he had to make himself visible in order to convince the senseless apostles that he had indeed been raised up from the dead, yet it also had to be obvious to them that Jesus had changed —he no longer had human limitations. No, Jesus was no longer a mere man. But what was he? 

Keep in mind that a few days before when Jesus had appeared to Mary he told her to stop clinging to him. Why? Jesus told her: “For I have not yet ascended to the Father. But be on your way to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God.’”

Mary delivered the message to the apostles, that Jesus was going to ascend to his God and their God, that is to say —to Jehovah God. This is something extraordinary. What human has ever ascended to heaven before? None. No one. Contrary to what the untaught may claim, according to Jesus Christ himself no one has ascended to heaven except he that descended —the Son of man. (John 3:13)

It was perhaps as an expression of his sudden realization that Jesus was indeed going to appear before the very person of Jehovah in heaven – that Christ was no longer even human, that he had indeed transcended into spirit, the realm of gods, that Thomas exclaimed: “My Lord and my God!”

Or, since Thomas was likely aware that Jesus had previously appeared to other disciples since his resurrection and he rebuked them as being senseless and slow to believe all the things the prophets spoke, Thomas may have  wanted to show Jesus that he believed him to be the messianic Mighty God foretold in Isaiah. In any case, Jesus obviously did not think Thomas was addressing him in the mistaken belief that he was Jehovah God.

For those who still imagine that Jesus is Jehovah, who refuse to accept the testimony of Christ and his apostles that Jesus is the Son of God, Jesus’ rebuke of Thomas is most appropriate: Stop being unbelieving but become believing.

    Thanks for doing this, these are some very interesting and thought provoking answers to some misguided questions. I hope you knock some sense into jwlies.com

    • ewatchman

      I have no expectation of knocking sense into a trinitarian. I don’t think it can be done. Like the scripture says, you can even grind the stupid one with a mortar and pestle and his foolishness will not depart from him. My hope is to renew a sense of knowing the truth among Jehovah’s Witnesses, at least among those who may be losing their grip on it or have never had one to begin with.

      • Daisy

        After reading your answer, you can only look at the question as being nonsense. What a breath of inspirational air you are RK. Thank you for sharing your constant enlightening spiritual food with us here, who were, but are no longer losing our grip. 😀

        Your right, but so many of us and future others will benefit greatly from these questions and answers!

      • Marisa Gomez

        Helo, brother Rey, you make me love and love more to Jehova. You have been a blessing for me.
        I’ve talked to a brother in my congregation here in Quito about you and 1914, and he is so interested, and I’m so happy. Jehova bless you.

        • Jamie Mac

          Marisa , I can feel the genuine love you have for Jehovah. I pray that more and more truth seekers find their way to this site.

        • ewatchman

          You know there is a Spanish version of the site, rite? It is not really up to date, but it is the best I can do for now. Maybe your friend would prefer Spanish? http://e-testigosdejehova.com/

          • Marisa Gomez

            Dear brother, our next magazine mention “the white horse of apocalypse” .
            But I ask you if that horseman really represent to Jesus,,,,? The four horses working together in destruccion….I think is the tribulation….And Jesus comes to the Jehova’s day…just after the tribulation ,,,,,Also, the armies (no only four horses) that were in heaven were following him on white horses, and they were clothed in white, clean, fine linen. Revelation 19:14.
            Revelacion 6 Jesus is the lamb opening the seven seals….so he can’t be the lamb and at the same time a rider. plizzz answer me,,,,,plizz.

  • Andres Felipe

  • Dean LaRue

    These answers are very exciting and faith provoking. Thanks again Brother King.

  • Bklyn Kevin

    These Trinitarians surely have their own deluding influence just like the watchtower and their 1914 scenario.

    And you could show them 50 or so proof text and clearly disprove their assumptions yet they still cling to their delusion WHY? ( because they did not accept the love of the truth) that they might be saved.
    So that is why God lets an operation of error go to them, that they may get to believing the lie, in order that they all may be judged (because they did not believe the truth) but took pleasure in unrighteousness.

    However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons,1 Timothy 4:1

    • Basavaraj Of North Karnataka

      I love that comment

  • Basavaraj Of North Karnataka

    One point If Jesus and Jehovah are one and the same. Then why did Jesus is also called the Son of man. can GOD can become son of man. If Jehovah and Jesus are one and the same, then why it says in Acts:2:32. God resurrected this Jesus, and of this we are all witnesses. So did Jehovah resurrect himself. If so what’s the point in doing so? Let the Trinitians explain. The one who says that Jesus does not have the father is anti Christ. 1st John:2:22-23 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.

  • Basavaraj Of North Karnataka

    To
    Dear Respected Anointed Brother Robert King.

    You are a single man and you give so much response to those who pose threat to the faith of Jehovah’s witnesses such as Jwlies.com Actually the people who consider themselves as Governing body of Jehovah’s witnesses should do that job but you that. That is really appreciable and great.

    They say they are the faithful and discreet slave class. I don’t think they are not doing that job because they are even least bothered to reply to faith stumbling questions. So who actually the faithful and discreet salve? The one who gives the proper food at the proper time is the faithful and discreet salve and I openly say that you are the one but not the GB of WTS.

    They call themselves the shepherds. A shepherd should see the welfare of the sheep if under threat. The faith of the sheep of Jehovah is under threat such as the jwlies, but actually you are doing the shepherd’s work as you raise the voice to those put threat to our faith.

    So you are the real shepherd appointed by Jehovah for us and I openly acknowledge it.

    Those who call you an evil apostate even by the GB. I can only call them as evil foolish wolfs.

    I am downloading all these and putting in my system and taking printouts and giving it to my fleshly elder brother who had been stumbled by an JW elder in 1987.

    With these few words I ask Jehovah to bless you through Jesus and give you great strength and good health so that we will be fed with more food like this in the days to come.May Jehovah bless you now and forever.

  • Joseph Stephan

    Jesus specifically approached Thomas and said to him: “Put your finger here, and see my hands, and take your hand and stick it into my side, and stop being unbelieving but become believing.”

    https://youtu.be/F8o4TrIA76U

    • Daisy

      Thank you for that…brought tears to my eyes.
      Being a Jew, Thomas believed in the Law and believed in the Prophets, and that there was one God, , the invisible true God who sent his son to redeem mankind, not that God sent himself down to become a man, and therefore , he would have had no intention of worshipping Jesus as part of a godhead, co equal with the Almighty God.
      Knowing the truth is quite simply believing what the bible actually writes, that there is one God, the Creator, his Son and his active force.
      Being a trinitarian, one has to have a highly convoluted tricky mind.

        It brought tears to my eyes too…in fact all the way down in my beard…i love my King and my God..and because of Them i have learned what true love is about and are so grateful for it …what else can we do than try our best to reflect that love ? (Col.3:12-17)..:-)

        • Daisy

          Oh, so true…its good here like that, we’re all trying our best, like me this afternoon not wishing to upset my beautiful boy. I was invited into a pub to meet his mates, all four of them called Mark. To differentiate one from another they inherited nicknames to differentiate them, such as Fish Mark…he being a fisherman. Book Mark, he dealt in antique books. Spark Mark is an electrician and Pigeon Mark who flew from one street to another dispensing illegals. Was I loving? You bet! On the wall of the pub was a sign which read ‘keep your eyes on the pies’ so how could I not be. Sending much love to you Arvid:D

          • Arvid Fløysand

            4 men called Mark?…i would say you got Marked on that pub today hehe..much love to you too dear sister 🙂

              That’s a good one Arvid. Lol.

          • ewatchman

            Hey Daisy, fetch a half pint of Ole Speckled Hen for me. ;~)

            • Daisy

              Okay ya guv’nor *-*

            • Arvid Fløysand

              I am not familiar with English pub-slang so dont be surprised if you find one old speckled hen in your mailbox…at least you will have one fresh egg every morning 😉

            • Beverly kenyon

              Arvid, old speckled hen is an ale (beer). We’re serious about our ales and beers over here in England and we give then spectacular names. But that would be fantastic to be able to have a real live hen and amazingly super fresh eggs! Here in the city we forget that eggs come from real live hens. You must have the best freshest tasting scrambled eggs Arvid. Envious!

            • Burt Reynolds

              My father always used to drink Bass, but the best beer I ever had was/is Old Time brewery’s London Porter, from a recipe dug up from 1683. They had some for sale in sainsburys here for a while. It tastes like liquid English oak brewed over the softest hops, steamed to perfection, with a hint of Demerara sugar. If it was around at the time of Christ, the memorial wine would be London porter.

            • Beverly kenyon

              I’m going to look out for that beer Burt as it sounds interesting because of the very old recipe. Here in Manchester there’s an old pub called, the Marble Arch and you have to know about it as its a bit tucked away on Rochdale Road and it specialises in beers you wouldn’t normally come across. Proper lovers of real ale go out of their way to go to the Marble Arch. You most probably have a few establishments like the Marble Arch down South. Is Bass still going?

            • Burt Reynolds

              I think the last time I was in a pub was thirty years ago! Bass is still made., but I drink very little now and what I do drink is horrendously expensive, so it’s very little, very seldom. Sigh….the beer is made by Mean Time, not old time. It’s me that’s old….more sigh….

            • Beverly kenyon

              Maybe you should have a little tipple of the expensive stuff Burt and treat yourself as there’s a lot of sighing! Awww.

          • Beverly kenyon

            Love this post. ‘Keep your eyes on the pies’ has got to be one of the funniest things I’ve heard this week. Lol. What are the odds of all your boys’ mates being called, Mark! Boys always have nicknames for each other…it makes me laugh. It sounds like such a fun day Daisy. Love how you write about family and everyday things that we can all relate to and with such honesty. You had Arvid laughing there and Brother King ‘ordering a pint’.

          • Burt Reynolds

            That reminds me of Elvis Presley’s song, Suspicious Pies.

            • Beverly kenyon

              Burt, you are so VERY funny! Lol.

  • Burt Reynolds

    I am not familiar with the scope of the orginal language that the statement of Thomas was written in. However, in English, the statement ‘my Lord and my God’, can quite easily refer to both…ergo, ‘my teacher and (HIS) teacher’, depending on the inflection used. Neither were we privy to the expressions or gestures used , and to the writer of the gospel, being aware of the facts, may not have thought it relevant to include such. Thomas may have seen the wounds, placed his hand in Christ’s side, looked Jesus in the face and said ‘my Lord…’ Then raise his hands and eyes upwards, and referred to Jehovah…’and my God!.’ Be that as it may, it is hardly important, because those who choose not to believe do so wilfully and do not want to be taught, or to humble themselves to the truth. Like the watchtower, trinitarianism ties itself in knots and is unable to escape its own bonds. This essay on believing, is very heartening. Like the trinitarianists, we like to make things difficult for ourselves, but the truth is so easy and rewarding if we allow ourselves faith. How many times have we, all of us I suspect, pleaded in our prayers to be shown those ‘wounds’ as Thomas did, so that we may believe, without the exercise and bridge of faith? Me for one!

    • Jamie Mac

      2 Peter 3:4 Where is this promised presence of his? . I wonder how many of us at one time have doubted the second coming of Jesus. I have, only because sometimes there appears to be no end to the wickedness on show today.

      • Bklyn Kevin

        Good morning Jamie. As I read your comment I had remembered this article which I found very enlightening concerning Jesus’ second coming. I hope you enjoy reading it and please let me know what you think.
        LOOK! YOUR KING IS COMING TO YOU.
        Excerpt:
        In saying he would “come again” Jesus was speaking of his second coming. Oddly, the term “second coming” does not resonate with Jehovah’s Witnesses —not at all. From the very beginning the core doctrine of the Watchtower is that Jesus has already come, having returned invisibly —although it is no longer referred to as his second coming. As far as the Watchtower is concerned the second coming of Christ is theocratic history — essentially, a non-event. Jehovah’s Witnesses certainly do not anticipate any sort of second coming in the future. Read more> https://e-watchman.com/look-king-coming/

        • Jamie Mac

          Hi Kevin. Thanks for highlighting that article. You are such a thoughtful brother. I can look around the comments on e watchman and see many of us thanking you for the very same thing I am thanking you for.

          I remember reading that article , but I read it through a couple of times again and as always Robert can explain Jehovah’s word so eloquently and in a way which people like myself can understand.

          Without revealing my life story to you, the reason I quoted 2 Peter 3:4 is because sometimes I find myself saying exactly the same thing after watching yet another horrible item on the news that shows innocent people slain and children dying of starvation. Beverly said something similar in a reply to me recently.

          On top of that I have just been made redundant yet again and I find the stress of looking for jobs overwhelming.My body does not handle stress. I guess at the moment I just want the kingdom to come now. ( please Jehovah ).

          I am mindful of Amos 5:18 (NIV) Woe to you who long for the day of the LORD! This is a reminder from Jehovah basically saying , be careful what you wish for.

          We all are going to jump from the frying pan into the fire soon and that frightens me.

            Dear brother i am sure Jehovah loves you very much,because you got that meek and kind mind…it seems to me that you already got the “key” of love to open the “treasure-box” of Jesus who contains the truth (Col.2:3)…now its time to use that “key”..please do and it will ease all kind of fear…1Joh.4:18-“There is no fear in love,but perfect love casts fear out,.”
            You are absolutely not alone..you are walking shoulder by shoulder along with the greatest finest army of peace-soldiers who ever marched this planet…”see” us and “hear” us when we “sing” together in perfect harmony while our glorious King Christ Jesus take the lead together with Almighty God Jehovah Himself…the parting of the red sea was indeed a kolossal event…but it was more like a semi-final …”eat” and stay strong my brother…i am very happy to walk by your side in this Grand Finale..
            When i have some “food” i will be happy to share with you and all my friends..and i know that you do the same…shalom my brother

      Yes happy are those who did not see Jesus and yet believe./ put faith in Jesus ransom.
      John 20:29-A.

      These are the ones who did not take pleasure in unrighteousness and tilled their soil during the early rain.
      Still others fell upon the fine soil and they began to yield fruit, this one a hundredfold, that one sixty, the other thirty. (Those with true faith).

      Others fell upon the rocky places where they did not have much soil, / [faith] and at once they sprang up because of not having depth of soil. / [faith]
      But when the sun rose they were scorched, and because of not having root / [faith] they withered.

    Well stated! Love it

  • Francis Bencharles

    Does it have to be one or the other? Does Jesus have to be almighty God, or no God at all? Is there somewhere in between that Jesus fits as God where he is not equal to his Father? Jesus will never be equal to his Father or a part of any Trinity, but he did “become” God, a mighty God, not almighty God. Jesus is the first of God’s Son’s to become God. This makes him the firstborn to become God.

    For example, to which one of the angels did God ever say: “You are my son; today I have become your father”?+ And again: “I will become his father, and he will become my son”?+ 6 But when he again brings his Firstborn+ into the inhabited earth, he says: “And let all of God’s angels do obeisance to him.”* Hebrews 1:5,6

    Every living thing that God created reproduces according to their kind. Fish produce fish, cows produce cows etc. God produces God’s, but Jesus is the only one of his Son’s who has attained that level. He truly became God’s Son, not when he was created but when he became the “only Begotten God”. Jesus is not ashamed to be God, that has been his goal since his creation. But, he has never had the thought of usurping the Godship of his Father Jehovah like Satan did.

    Keep this mental attitude in you that was also in Christ Jesus,+ 6 who, although he was existing in God’s form,+ gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God.+ 7 No, but he emptied himself and took a slave’s form+ and became human.*+ 8 More than that, when he came as a man,* he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death,+ yes, death on a torture stake.*+ 9 For this very reason, God exalted him to a superior position+ and kindly gave him the name that is above every other name,+ 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend—of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground+— 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord+ to the glory of God the Father. Phillipians 2:5-11.

    If you are given the position and name that is higher than the angels, what does that make you? When the Israelites “bent a knee to Baal” it was the description of bowing down to a false God and many of the Israelites were guilty of such a crime. Jehovah has instructed the angels that they “should” bow down to Jesus or bend a knee to him because he has “become” God and this is a sign of respect to not only Jesus but to Jehovah as well.

    I understand not wanting to appear that you believe in the Trinity, because I certainly don’t, but Jesus is God and has become God, he just is not, nor will ever be equal to his Father Jehovah.

    • Burt Reynolds

      The clue is in the title. ‘Stop being unbelieving, and become believing.’ This is then followed by a clear explanation of what the bible says on the topic and suggests that inevitably, you will need to answer that question yourself. No one can do it for you.

  • Francis Bencharles

    Easy fix. Jesus is God, he is simply not Almighty God because only Jehovah is that!

  • Beverly kenyon

    So I’m in town today and was passing carts, two sisters working them, so thought I’d stock up on literature. The mature sister started talking to me, I didn’t initiate it, she did, so I mentioned a few things, well, she could not get enough information off me and just kept saying, how do you know such things, you are very knowledgeable and I kept thinking wish you knew some of the ones on Ewatchman, anyway, this carried on then were joined by a young French African woman and we’re having a brilliant discussion as she wanted some answers, it was fantastic! So I had to go but the sister kept leaving the cart to come after me wanting to know how do I know such bible knowledge so I told her about where and she took out her notepad and said she will be definitely finding it on the net. Then again she said, you know so much and I thought, seriously, what are they teaching you at the KHs? Not the first time this has happened. The last time when I spoke to a witness in town, cos I was stocking up again, the brother, a mature one again, kept asking how I know such things and what chance was there for him come Tribulation, I thought, how the hell would I know??!! He said about three times to me! I told him about the site and he should look it up. Said to them I was being taught by an anointed witness and that’s how I know. Must say also that I’ve also learnt from many ones on this site and Peimeno and Baruq. So if you’re reading this post Brother King I want to thank you for teaching me the real Truth of God’s Word and saving me when I was totally wandering about clueless as to where to go when I found out about WT lies and disloyalty. That sis also said the witnesses will be learning about the ride of the four horsemen in the next study article….that should interesting what they’re going to come up with that subject! I left town absolutely buzzing after speaking with the French woman and the mature sister!

      Beverly, that is truly exciting. Just how far a little informal preaching of “truth” may go. Jehovah certainly as we know, opens doors when one least expects!

        So true ShaSha. I love informal witnessing. And I wasn’t even going to engage with them as they’re so defensive but I was amazed at the reaction I got and the lovely French young woman joining in the discussion, it got really lively and friendly. It was a good day and I wasn’t even looking forward to going into town and then that happened!

      Very encouraging experience, sister Beverly. Thanks for sharing.

        That’s funny Brother King. Lol. Yeah, you can bet they were counting time. The sister asked me what my faith was even though I was speaking some of their language and I said I was a Christian. Wished more witnesses were like her.

      Thank you Beverly for sharing this…i do hope that they look up this site and hopefully we can have the great joy of welcome them to this site soon…and many many more :-)…as a carpenter i volunteer to make the beautiful welcome table bigger when all who loves ( TTATT) the truth about the truth comes marching in 🙂

        Hiya Arvid, I just wished every witness would find their way to either Brother King’s site or Brother Perimeno’s site. That would be the best! Arvid, you do make me laugh about how you love that welcome dinner table full of beautiful spiritual and physical food that Joseph puts up to welcome new ones who have found TRTATT (the real real truth about the truth). When he does that I always think to myself, Arvid is gonna love that!
