INTRODUCTION

Not too long ago, a friend had shared with me about two Jehovah’s Witnesses, who now have serious concerns about the teachings of the Watchtower Society.   But in spite of the courage they have in making the decision to leave,  they are also experiencing fear and confusion.   My friend had asked me to pray for them, and later as I thought about what they may possibly be going through as I prayed for them,  this poem began to come together in my mind.

If God leads you to pray for them, your prayers would be greatly appreciated.  I do not, however, feel free to share their names.  God knows who they are, and cares deeply for them, and for all of you who have been mentally, emotionally, and sadly sometimes even physically and sexually abused by religious movements such as the Watchtower Society. 

Any religion that claims they are the only source of truth, or tries to take away your freedom to think and to test what they say in light of Scripture, as God’s Word tells us we are to do, and proclaims doctrines that conflict with or completely contradicts Biblical truth, should be clear warning signs to you that they are presenting a false gospel.  Seek God in His Word, and ask Him to reveal His truth to you, and He will be faithful to do that.

May God reveal His truth to all of you who may unknowingly be trapped in a false religious system.  As He does, I pray God will give you courage so that you would have the strength and determination to leave.  May God lead you out and bring healing to your minds and restore your lives, so that you will bring Him glory and help others who are going through the same emotional pain, anger, and confusion that you are experiencing.

***UPDATE FEBRUARY 6th 2011***For those of you who are either considering joining the Watchtower Society, or who are already involved in it and are beginning to have doubts and questions about their teachings, please don’t ignore your concerns and push them to the back of your mind.  Instead, please read a King James Version of the Bible, and test all things you hear against the truth of God’s Word.  God set forth this practice of testing men’s words against the truth of His Word to protect us from being led into deception.  “Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”    (Acts 17:11)

Even though, as a  Jehovah’s Witness you are told not to question the Governing Body’s teachings, because of your love for Jehovah, you need to hold His Word higher than the words of men.  Even though they claim to speak for God,  their words still need to be tested against the truth of God’s Word.  Please choose to be the spiritual leader for your family and pray and ask God to show you what the truth is in His Word, to protect you and your loved ones.  If you do, you will save yourself and your loved ones from a lot of heartache and serious mental and emotional confusion. God bless you.

SCRIPTURES FOR YOU TO REFLECT ON

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth…”  Romans 1:16 KJV

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.  As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”  Galatians 1:8,9 KJV

“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”  Acts 17:11 KJV

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtity, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.  For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”  2 Corinthians 11:3,4,13-15 KJV

“Making the Word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye hath delivered: and many such like things do ye.”  Mark 7:13 KJV

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”  Colossians 2:8 KJV

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”  1 John 4:18 KJV

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave Himself a ransom for all…”  1 Timothy 2:5,6 KJV

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”  John 14:6 KJV

“For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again.  Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh:  yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more.  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”  2 Corinthians 5: 14-20 KJV

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”  2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

“But as many have received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believeth on His name.”  John 1:12 KJV

“For ye hath not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”  Romans 8:15 KJV

“And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”  John 8:32 KJV

BREAKING FREE

Bound by fear and the lies of the enemy,

Lord, they need Your mighty power to rush in and set them free,

Reveal Your grace and mercy that You showed for all mankind,

Remove fear and deception, so they may leave it all behind,

Replace them with Your love and truth, as You give them eyes to see,

The beauty of the gospel message, that has the power to set them free,

Remove from their thinking those things not of You,

Replace in their minds only things that are true,

Scriptures to show them the power in Your Word,

Your message of life that they have not heard,

Reveal they are sinners with no hope at all,

But that You provided a Savior and to Him they would call,

Release them from the bondage of lies and control,

As the power of the gospel shatters deception and saves their soul,

Restore them to Yourself when Your truth they would see,

That Jesus took Your wrath upon Himself, and He’s waiting to set them free.
