THE INVISIBLE RETURN OF JESUS

THE INVISIBLE COMING OF JESUS


Did Jesus come Invisibly in 1914 or at any other time? Is the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society correct in their teaching that Jesus has already returned?

This will be a study in God’s word so if you do NOT believe what the Bible ITSELF teaches then this study is not for you. I will use the verses brought forth by the Jehovah’s Witnesses publications as their proof text as to WHY they sincerely believe with all their heart that Jesus has already returned INVISIBLY and that is why they hold fast to the teaching that there will be no future VISIBLE coming of Jesus.

To keep this study as short as possible I will not cover every verse but rather what The WatchTower terms as “misconceptions” made by those who teach a literal visible coming of Jesus in the very near future. I will put their words in a different font style. And the emphasis is mine.


Common misconceptions about Christ’s coming

Misconception: When the Bible says that people will SEE Jesus “coming on the clouds,” it means that Jesus will come VISIBLY.—Matthew 24:30.

Fact: The Bible often associates clouds with something hidden from view. (Leviticus 16:2;Numbers 11:25; Deuteronomy 33:26) For example, God told Moses: “I am coming to you in a dark cloud.” (Exodus 19:9) Moses did not literally see God. Likewise, Christ ‘comes on the clouds’ in that people perceive his coming even though they cannot literally see him.

The argument AGAINST the LITERAL VISIBLE yet future coming of Jesus is based upon the interpretation that ALL the verses in the Bible referring to the COMING of Jesus are NOT LITERAL but rather they are symbolic. In there words, The WatchTower publications are claiming that all the verses in the Bible concerning the COMING of Jesus are speaking of an INVISIBLE coming of Jesus and NOT a LITERAL coming of Jesus.

The first question every Jehovah’s Witness should ask their self is WHY? What is the REASON of why we should interpret they verses as NOT being LITERAL?

Simply do your OWN research. After all it is the salvation of YOUR soul that is at stake. Sart by typing in the Google search bar “The invisible coming of Jesus in 1914”. And read any article on the FACTS of failed prophecy and you will find that the early pioneers of the Jehovah’s Witnesses sincerely believed with all their heart in the VISIBLE return of Jesus. But when their prophets prophecies did not come to pass after several changes to his prophecies he told them that Jesus did come but his coming was INVISIBLE. And thus BEGAN the CHANGE from the OLD Jehovah’s Witness teaching of a VISIBLE coming to the their NEW teaching of an INVISIBLE coming of Jesus.


Or you can simply read the Bible for YOURSELF to see if what you are being taught by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society.

Please read Acts 3:21.


“And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

21.  Whom the heaven must receive UNTIL the times of restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.”


The restitution of all things is speaking of the KINGDOM of God on the earth being RESTORE to his people Israel. Now I do not know about you, but I myself do NOT see Israel being the head nation of the world and the Bible ITSELF states as a FACT with no interpretation need that heaven MUST RECEIVE Jesus UNTIL it is time to RESTORE the kingdom to Israel and this has NOT yet happen. Therefore Jesus has NOT returned invisibly or in any manner back in 1914 or at any other time.

And please do not be deceived by the argument that Jesus is PRESENTLY restoring the kingdom to Israel GRADUALLY over many years beginning in 1914.

Simple read the Bible for YOURSELF to see if that is a sound Biblical argument. What is one of the very FIRST things that Jesus will do when he actually BEGINS to restore the Kingdom to Israel?

Please read Isaiah 2:2,3.


“And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD FROM Jerusalem. (Please notice that when Jesus returns then the TEACHING of God’s word will come FROM Jerusalem and NOT from New York City from the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society.)

4.  And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall NOT lift up sword against nation, NEITHER shall they learn WAR any more.”


So then, if there are still WAR, MURDERS, VIOLENCE, CRIME, and FIGHTING then Jesus has NOT yet returned because Jesus will END all of those things as being one of the very first things that he does.

Can you not see that the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society is trying to COVER UP the failed prophecies made by the founders of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. THINK for yourself. Why would there be any MORE prophecies made after 1914 if so be that Jesus already returned invisibly back in 1914. The truth of the matter is that after 1975 when the Prophecy failed there was a huge decline in the number of Jehovah’s Witnesses due to MANY leaving the Organization because of the FAILED prophecy. And since 1075 the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society has not made any more prophecies but rather now focuses on trying to prove the INVISIBLE return of Jesus back in 1914 by CLAIMING that all the verses referring to the coming of Jesus are NOT to be taken LITERALLY.

I implore all Jehovah’s Witnesses to do your OWN research by going to any number of websites that will give you ALL the FACTS. May I suggest JWFacts.com? Just click on this  LINK to one of there many articles that QUOTE the Watchtower publications.

Here is a quote from their article on the 1975 prophecy on Armageddon.

1975 - Watchtower Quotes

From 1966 to 1975, the Watchtower regularly implied that Armageddon would arrive in 1975. However, ask one of Jehovah's Witnesses about this date and they will invariably deny there ever being such statements. The following exhaustive list of quotes show the Watchtower left little to the imagination regarding 1975.

In 1980, the Watchtower made a post-1975 admission that it had encouraged the viewpoint that Jesus earthly rulership would begin 1975.

The Watchtower strongly implied the end would come in 1975.

"With the appearance of the book Life Everlasting-in Freedom of the Sons of God, and its comments as to how appropriate it would be for the millennial reign of Christ to parallel the seventh millennium of man's existence, considerable expectation was aroused regarding the year 1975. ... Unfortunately, however, along with such cautionary information, there were other statements published that implied that such realization of hopes by that year was more of a probability than a mere possibility ." Watchtower 1980 Mar 15 p.17


The FACT is that Jesus will return to END the battle of Armageddon. So one of the very VISIBLE SIGNS that will occur BEFORE Jesus returns is the abomination that causes desolation spoken by the prophet Daniel which is defined or interpreted FOR us in the gospel of Luke. Jesus himself tells us that Jerusalem will be surrounded by ARMIES. And from other verses of the Bible we can understand and know that those armies will be Islamic Muslim armies seeking to wipe the Jews off the face of the earth once and for all.

Please read Luke 20:20-22.


“And when you shall SEE Jerusalem compassed with armies, then KNOW that the desolation thereof is nigh.

21.  Then let them which are in Judaea FLEE to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

22.  For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”


Now read the parallel accounts in both Matthew and Mark and noticed what Jesus says right before the warning to FLEE Judea.

Matthew 24:15,16.


When you therefore shall SEE the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16.  Then let them which be in Judaea FLEE into the mountains:”


Mark 13:14.


“But when you shall SEE the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea FLEE to the mountains:”


So Jesus HIMSELF defnes FOR us what the abomination of desolation IS in Luke 20:21 which is that Jerusalem will be surrounded by ARMIES to make the city of Jerusalem DESOLATE.

The Bible itself describes the world right before the coming of Jesus as men DESTROYING the earth. Please read Revelation 11:15-19.


“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. (when Jesus return he will LITERALLY reign for a LITERAL 1000 years. And AT his coming ALL the kingdoms of this present world will become HIS kingdoms and trust me when I say that Jesus will be making some BIG CHANGES. And as I said before on of the first changes will be NO MORE WAR during his reign. And since there have been wars since 1914 then you can know with absolute certainty that Jesus has NOT returned INVISIBLY at any time.)

16.  And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

17.  Saying, We give you thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which are, and were, and are to come; because you have taken to you your great power, and have reigned.

18.  And the nations were angry, and your wrath IS COME, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give REWARD unto your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear your name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth.

19.  And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.”


So then, WHEN Jesus returns there will be no less than four things that will take place AT the TIME of his COMING. Verse 18 is very clear on this matter.


#1. The nations will be angry that God’s wrath IS COME. The Bible teaches us that when Jesus returns one of the things he will do is execute the VENGEANCE and WRATH of God upon the wicked. He will deliver the faithful Christian from the WRATH by a rapture because we are not appointed to God’s wrath. Jesus will have the 144,000 children of Israel seal to protect them from the wrath of God so that they will be guaranteed to remain alive in their mortal bodies to go into the Millennium to be taught of the Lord.  The will also be some of the nation who repent and call upon the name of the Lord to be saved alive in their mortal bodies as well.

See Zechariah 14:16.


“And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.”


And there will be a remnant of Jews along with the 144,000 sealed Jews who will survive the wrath of God as well. Please read Isaiah 11:10,11 where verse 10 is a prophecy of the FIRST coming of Jesus where the majority of the Jews will reject him as their messiah and verse 11 is a prophecy of the SECOND coming of Jesus where a REMNANT of Jews will recognize Jesus as the Messiah AT his COMING again.

Isaiah 11:10,11.


“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

11.  And it shall come to pass in that day, (the day of the Lord VENGEANCE and WRATH.) that the Lord shall set his hand again the SECOND TIME to recover the REMNANT of his people, which shall be LEFT (alive in prison camps of war), from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.”


#2. The time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give REWARD unto your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear your name, small and great;

So then there will be a RESURRECTION AT the COMING of Jesus where the SAINTS ONLY will be reward with ETERNAL LIFE and all those who REPENT and call upon Jesus to be saved when they SEE him coming will be rewarded by being saved alive in their mortal bodies to go into the Millennium to be TAUGHT of the Lord.

They will work to rebuild the desolate places. They will destroy all the weapons of war. They will bury all the dead bodies and all the bones of the dead. And then they will LEARN to live in PEACE with one another for a 1000 years keeping in mind that the life-span of EVERY mortal will be 100 years of age where there will be NO more premature deaths. Now NONE of this has happen yet so it is IMPOSSIBLE for jesus to have already returned.


#3. The destruction of the armies who will be destroying not only Jerusalem but the earth as well. Probably will nuclear radiation from weapons of mass destruction. Jesus will return to destroy THEM which destroy the earth.

Jerusalem has not been surrounded by armies since her destruction is 70 AD. The destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD could not have been the abomination of desolation spoken by the prophet Daniel because Jesus himself says the IMMEDIATELY after the tribulation of those days EVERY EYE shall SEE his COMING in clouds of great glory.

And right before they see the SIGN of the Son of man coming in the clouds there will be great and terrible SIGNS in the SUN and in the MOON and in the STARS and there will be a great earthquake. And the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

Now it is not certain that WE shall see these signs but it will be certain that the WORLD sees these SIGNS. The only sign that is certain that WE will see is the Islamic Muslim ARMIES surrounding Jerusalem seeking to kill every last Jew and every last Christian they can find in the Middle East. Many will be cast in prison to await their death by beheading. But Jesus will return and DELIVER them. The Christians will be rewarded with ETERNAL LIFE to rule and reign WITH Jesus and the Jews will be spared alive in their mortal bodies to go into the 1000 year reign of Jesus to be taught of the Lord and WHY they were NOT allowed to enter the city of God with the Christians.


Let us move on to the second supposed misconception claimed by the Watch Tower Bible and tract Society.


Misconception: The expression “every eye will see him,” used at Revelation 1:7 when speaking of Christ’s coming, is to be understood literally.

Fact: The Greek words in the Bible for “eye” and “seeing” are SOMETIMES used in the sense of discerning or perceiving rather than referring to literal sight. * (Matthew 13:15; Luke 19:42;Romans 15:21; Ephesians 1:18) The Bible says that the resurrected Jesus is “the one . . . who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man . . . can see.” (1 Timothy 6:16) Thus, “every eye will see him” in that all people will perceive that Jesus is the one who brings God’s judgment.—Matthew 24:30.

SOMETIMES does not mean EVERY TIME so it is wrong to imply that Revelation 1:7 MUST be interpreted SYMBOLICALLY as perceiving the coming of Jesus as opposed to EVERY EYE literally SEEING the coming of Jesus. Let us read Revelation 1:7 in its CONTEXT to see what will take place AT his COMING.

Revelation 1:5-7.


“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

6.  And has made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. (so then, EVERY FAITHFUL believer IN Jesus will be made a king and priest unto God AT the COMING of Jesus. In other words. The Rapture will take place AT the COMING of Jesus and we will RULE and REIGN WITH Jesus over the mortals on the surface of the earth.)

7.   Behold, he comes with clouds; and EVERY eye shall SEE him, and they also which pierced him: and ALL kindreds of the earth shall WAIL BECAUSE of him. Even so, Amen.”


WHY will every one left on the surface of the earth WAIL when EVERY eye or every PERSON left on the surface of the earth will SEES Jesus coming with clouds? Because Jesus is coming to make WAR with those armies who are making WAR with Israel. The world is going to see an ARMY coming from the heavens or outer space and to THEM it will look like and alien invasion. Please read the study “THE WAR IN HEAVEN-Revelation 12!” for all the verses teaching us of the war of Armageddon. But for now here are a couple of verses,

Revelation 6:12-17.


“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

13.  And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

14.  And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15.  And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, HID themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16.  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the WRATH of the Lamb:

17.  FOR (or BECAUSE they will KNOW that) the great day of his WRATH IS COME; and who shall be able to stand?”


Then in the next chapter you will see the 144,000 who without a doubt will ALL be JEWS and NOT one single Jehovah’s Witness will be in that number of the 144,000 and if you knew the TRUTH you would NOT want to be one of the 144,000. Then after the 144,000 Jews are sealed to be protected we see the RAPTURE of every true born-again faithful believer who has ever lived from the day of Pentecost to the COMING of Jesus. Please read the study “WHO ARE THE 144,000?” for are the verse proving WHO the 144,000 will be yet in the future.

Now compare the SIGNS in the SUN, the MOON and the STARS with ALL the verses in the Bible for YOURSELF because they will usher in the COMING of Jesus. There will be NO question in the mind of anyone WHEN Jesus actually COMES back the the earth.

Start with Matthew 24: 23 -31.


“Then if ANY man shall SAY unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it NOT.

24.  For (or BECAUSE) there shall arise false Christs, (or false ANOINTED ones) and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (the reason why the Apostle of Jesus tell us to read the Bible for OURSELVES is to make sure we are not being deceived by FALSE anointed prophets who claim that only THEY have the TRUTH)

25.  Behold, I have told you before.

26.  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers;(or if the say unto you that Jesus has come INVISIBLY or the Jesus will come SECRETLY before the great tribulation) believe it NOT.

27.  FOR (or BECAUSE) as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (you do NOT need to be told when there is a storm is raging. You can see for yourself when a storm comes and Jesus is saying that just as you can see a storm when it come so shall you also SEE the Son of man when he comes. Right now we are PERCEIVINg the coming of Jesu but when he actually COMES every eye will SEE him LITERALLY SEE him,)

28.  FOR (or BECAUSE) wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. (this verse has two meanings. The dead bodies in LITERAL in both meanings. The dead bodies are those who will slain AT the COMING of Jesu during the battle of Armageddon. The eagles are symbolic for the SAINTS who will be rapture and gathered together by the angel and taken to MEET Jesus in the AIR over the place called Armageddon where we will be given the honor to help execute the vengeance and wrath of God upon the Islamic Muslim armies who have been for decades and will yet be killing the Christians and the Jews right up to the COMING of Jesus. So as long as there are still be Jews and Christians killed for the witness of Jesus and the word of God then Jesus has NOT YET returned. Plain and simple Jesus did NOT return INVISIBLY back in 1914 or at any other time. His coming will NOT be INVISIBLE.)

29. Immediately after the tribulation of those days (speakin of the tribulation from the first martyr Stephen to those who will be martyred during the 3½ years of GREAT tribulation) shall the SUN be darkened, and the MOON shall not give her light, and the STARS shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: (these are the same SIGN we saw in Revelation 6 which we know will take place right BEFORE the WRATH of God is executed by Jesus and from this verse IMMEDIATELY AFTER the 3 ½ years of GREAT tribulation.)

30.  And THEN appear the SIGN of the Son of man in heaven: (what is that SIGN that the WORLD will SEE? To me, it is quite clear that the world will see a great ARMIES in the SKIES all over the world coming from outer space, The Bible describes this army of God as riding CHARIOTS on the CLOUDS. Again please read the study “THE WAR IN HEAVEN-REVELATION 12!” for all the verses that describes this WAR being wages as an AIR strike upon the Islamic Muslim armies and whatever armies JOIN with them to fight against Israel) and THEN shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and THEY shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (to execute the WRATH of Almighty God upon THEM)

31.  And (or more precisely BUT) he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they (the angels of Jesus) shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”


Verse 31 is the RAPTURE of the SAINTS and the 144,000 sealed Jews being caught up in their MORTAL bodies to be PROTECTED from the wrath of God to ensure their survival. The 144,000 sealed Jews will be brought down back to the surface of the earth after the Wrath of God has been lifted lest every human perish. Let us move on to the next misconception that is claimed by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society.



Misconception: The words of 2 John 7 show that Jesus will come in the FLESH.

Fact: That Bible verse states: “Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those not acknowledging Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh.”

In the apostle John’s day, some denied that Jesus had come to earth in the flesh as a man. They were called Gnostics. Second John 7 was written to refute their false claim.

Now the ONLY reason that this argument is even being raised is that in order to TRY and prove that Jesus has already returned INVISIBLY The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society MUST prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that Jesus was NOT resurrected with and body of FLESH which can be SEEN.

This verse in 2 John 1:7 has nothing whatsoever to do with the COMING of Jesus but rather speaks of the ANOINTING coming in the FLESH of Jesus BEFORE Jesus ascended into heaven where he is NOW awaiting his RETURN. There were some Christians in John’s day and even now in our day who DENY that Jesus was FULLY flesh void of any divine nature DURING the DAYS of his FLESH. This does not mean that they are not saved but rather than that they are in error in their understanding of the Scriptures.

Let us move on to the proof texts used by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society to TRY and prove that Jesus was raised from the dead with an INVISIBLE SPIRITUAL BODY that CANNOT BE SEEN.


Does Christ come in a body of spirit or of flesh?

Jesus was resurrected with a spirit body, so he comes as a spirit creature, not in the flesh. (1 Corinthians 15:45; 1 Peter 3:18) For this reason, Jesus could tell his apostles on the day before his death: “In a little while the world will see me no more.”—John 14:19.


Let us start with John 14:19 but we will read the WHOLE verse so as to NOT HIDE the TRUTH from you.

John 14:19.


“Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more; but YOU see me: BECAUSE I live, (and because I live) you shall live also.”


Jesus spoke these word BEFORE he went to the cross to suffer and die for the sins of the world. Jesus says in a LITTLE WHILE speaking of the 3 days and 3 nights he would be in the grave and preaching to the spirit is the heart of the earth to be saved by the NAME of Jesus like all men MUST be saved.

Jesus is telling them that he will be raised from the dead and that THEY would see the PROOF that he was risen but he was not going to PROVE to the WORLD that he is alive forever more. The WORLD will have to BELIEVE the EYEWITNESS to whom Jesus PROVED he was risen from the dead for forty day by many INFALLIBLE PROOFS. So this verse has nothing whatsoever with the world NEVER EVER SEEING Jesus VISIBLY when he returns. Ask yourself WHY the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society did NOT quote the WHOLE verse? Are they HIDING something from you? Well, YOU will have to decide that for YOURSELF.

Let us see if the leaders of the Jehovah’s Witnesses are HIDING anything else for you by NOT quoting the WHOLE verse and by taking verse OUT of their CONTEXT. Again YOU have to decide for YOURSELF. Let us move on to the next verse 1 Corinthians 15:45 which the leaders of the Jehovah’s Witnesses use to TRY and prove Jesus was resurrected in an INVISIBLE spirit body that cannot be SEEN. BUt we will read this verse in its CONTEXT.

1 Corinthians 15:42-45.


So also is the resurrection of the dead. (meaning that this MORTAL body that we have NOW will be resurrected or changed to become an IMMORTAL body) It is sown in corruption; (meaning that mean the mortal body died it will slowly decay and turn back to the dust of the earth.)

it is raised in incorruption: (meaning that the body we are resurrected with will never die and thus it will never decay. It also means that it will not get sick and not grow old and weak. There is nothing in this verse that would lead anyone the we will be resurrected as invisible spirit beings that cannot be seen.)

43.  It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: (still nothing about being INVISIBLE)

44.  It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. (and all this means is that the NATURAL boy is MORTAL and our new glorified spiritual body like Jesus has now will be IMMORTAL and we shall never die or grow old and weak. Being changed to have a spiritual BODY does not make us SPIRITS. Spirit do NOT have BODIES but we will have a spiritual BODY. When Jesus appeared to his disciples they were afraid because they THOUGHT that he was a spirit but Jesus said why are you afraid, I am NOT a SPIRIT because a spirit does not have a BODY and I have a BODY of flesh and bones. See for yourself HANDLE me. PROVE to your yourselves that it is ME and that I now have and IMMORTAL BODY of flesh and bones.)

45.  And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.”


What this verse means is that God gave the FULNESS of his Spirit to the Son of MAN jesus along with ALL authority and power to raise the dead and GIVE ETERNAL LIFE to whosoever he chooses. So you had better HONOR the Son EVEN AS you HONOR the Father because it is the Son who will CHOOSE who will receive ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come. Now WE will not be made a LIFE GIVEN spirit but rather we will be given IMMORTAL bodies of FLESH and BONES just like Jesu has NOW for we shall be like him at his coming for we shall SEE him as he IS.

1 John 3:2.


“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear (or it has not yet manifested) what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall SEE him as he IS.”


Let us read the words of Jesus when he appeared to his disciples in the upper room that same EVENING after he was raised from the dead EARLY that MORNING. Have you ever wondered WHY Jesus WAITED all the way to the EVENING to show himself ALIVE forever more when he was raised from the dead EARLY in the MORNING before DAWN? I will share why in a moment right after we read Luke 24:37-39.


“But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. (there is a bid difference form being a spirit than there is from having a spiritual BODY which is IMMORTAL BODY.)

38.  And he said unto them, Why are you troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

39.  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I MYSELF: HANDLE ME, and see (or TOUCH me and prove to yourselves that I am NOT a SPIRIT); for (or BECAUSE) a spirit has NOT FLESH and BONES AS you SEE ME HAVE.”


I want you to notice that Jesus HIMSELF states as a FACT that he is NOT a SPIRIT and that he has a BODY of FLESH and BONE that can be SEEN and TOUCHED. And Jesus told them to TOUCH him and HANDLE his so that they could KNOW beyond any shadow of a doubt that Jesus was not resurrected as a SPIRIT.

Yes, Jesus was raised with a SPIRITUAL BODY but a SPIRIT does not have ANY type of tangible BODY. A spirit can manifest itself to be seen but it does not have a REAL BODY that can be TOUCH and HANDLE like the RESURRECTED REAL IMMORTAL BODY of Jesus.

Now let us go back in time from Jesus appearing to his disciples that SAME EVENING to the early MORNING hours when Mary Magdalene saw Jesus right after his resurrection and here what Jesu told her NOT to do and WHY he told her NOT to do it.

Please read John 20:9-20.


“For as yet they knew NOT the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. (they did not UNDERSTAND fully that their Messiah must die and then be resurrected from the dead at this point in time so they THOUGHT that some STOLE to dead body of Jesus. The tomb was empty except for the cloth they cover Jesus with which by the way was all folded nice and neat and laid right where the dead body of Jesus laid.)

10.  Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. (two of the disciple went into the tomb, came out and left)

11.  But Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulcher,

12.  And SEES (not PERCEIVES but SEES two spirit beings who have spiritual BODIES who are) two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

13.  And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have TAKEN AWAY my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.

14.  And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and SAW Jesus standing, and knew NOT that it was Jesus. (because she was weeping and truly believed that some had taken the dead body of Jesus and laid it somewhere else. She did not expect Jesus to be ALIVE but rather she was looking for his DEAD body to anoint it because the weekly abbath had ended.)

15.  Jesus said unto her, Woman, why weepest you? whom seek you? She, supposing him to be the gardener, said unto him, Sir, if you have borne him hence, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away. (Mary was not looking for a RISEN Lord but rather she was looking for his DEAD BODY so she probably did not even pay any attention to what this person looked like who was talking to her. But when Jesus spoke her NAME then she turn to see this person who somehow KNEW he NAME.)

16.  Jesus said unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. (now she KNOWS that is is Jesus RISEN form the dead and probably wants to give him a big hug but Jesus says do NOT TOUCH me Mary. But WHY? Why would Jesus tell Mary Magdalene to NOT TOUCH him?)

17.  Jesus said unto her, TOUCH me NOT; FOR (or BECAUSE) I am NOT YET ASCENDED to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ASCEND unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. (so Mary leaves and goes tell the disciple that she saw Jesus ALIVE)

18.  Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had SEEN the Lord, (not PERCEIVED the Lord but actually LITERALLY SEEN Jesus) and that he had spoken these things unto her.

19.  Then the SAME DAY at EVENING, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and said unto them, Peace be unto you.

20.  And when he had so said, he SHOWED unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples GLAD, when they SAW the Lord.”


Now we just read in Luke where Jesus told his disciples to HANDLE him or TOUCH him to prove to themself that he was NOT a SPIRIT but that SAME DAY early that MORNING he told Mary to NOT TOUCH him BECAUSE he had NOT YET ASCENDED to his Father and his God.

The Bible tells us in John 3:13 that no MAN has ascend up into heaven but he himself who has DESCENDED from heaven and is IN heaven. Jesus, the Son of MAN ASCENDED into heaven right after telling Mary to NOT TOUCH him and then DESCENDED back down to the earth to SHOW his disciples his NEW GLORIFIED IMMORTAL BODY and then forty days later ASCEND back into heaven with the SAME SPIRITUAL IMMORTAL GLORIFIED BOTD of FLESH and BONE that his Father GAVE to him when he ASCENDED the FIRST time right after talking to Mary, right after God raised his dead body from the grave.

Now every verse the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society uses to TRY and prove that Jesus was raised from the dead as an INVISIBLE SPIRIT can be explained but rather than do that I want to cut straight to the heart of the matter and use the verse 1 Timothy 6:16 left IN its CONTEXT which they take OUT of it context and use to try and prove that Jesus is now INVISIBLE after hi resurrection.

Let me requote their words first and then we will take a CLOSER look at what 1 Timothy 6:16 truly means when it is left IN it CONTEXT.

Misconception: The expression “every eye will see him,” used at Revelation 1:7 when speaking of Christ’s coming, is to be understood literally.

Fact: The Greek words in the Bible for “eye” and “seeing” are SOMETIMES used in the sense of discerning or perceiving rather than referring to literal sight. * (Matthew 13:15; Luke 19:42;Romans 15:21; Ephesians 1:18) The Bible says that the resurrected Jesus is “the one . . . who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man . . . can see.” (1 Timothy 6:16) Thus, “every eye will see him” in that all people will perceive that Jesus is the one who brings God’s judgment.—Matthew 24:30.

What did the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society leave OUT? Do you see those three dots? That means that they did NOT quote the WHOLE verse to you. Whenever you see three dots then that should be a red flag to you to make absolutely sure that you read that verse for yourself IN the whole CONTEXT to be sure you are being taught the truth of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.

Now let us read 1 Timothy 6:13-16 to learn what this verse 16 truly means.

1 Timothy 6:13-16.


“I give you charge in the sight of God, who quickens all things, (so it is God ALONE who is the SOURCE of ALL life and who quickens or makes alive all things) AND before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; (In other words, Timothy is speaking of TWO different and separate beings here. He is talking about God the Father AND his SON Jesus. And he repeating to us that Jesus came to SHOW us the FATHER to be the ONLY TRUE God like Jesus himself declares in John 17:1-3)

14.  That you keep this commandment (or instruction) without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

15.  Which in his times (speaking of both his first coming and also his second coming in the world to come) he shall show, who is the blessed and ONLY Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

16.  Who ONLY has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man HAS SEEN, nor CAN SEE: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.”



This passage of scripture is speaking about Yahweh, Almighty God the Father who ONLY has always possessed IMMORTALITY in himself without anyone GIVING him immortality. Not the part that the leaders of the Jehovah’s Witness LEFT OUT and replaced with those three dots.

They quote the one… who dwells in the light…

But the verse actually says, the one. who is the blessed and ONLY Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

16.  Who ONLY has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man HAS SEEN, nor CAN SEE: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.


Now the REASON that they left this out is because you would KNOW that this verse proves that it is Yahweh the Father who is the INVISIBLE god who ONLY is the ALMIGHTY God and who ONLY has always had eternal life and whom NO man has EVER SEE.

Can you not see my dear Jehovah’s Witness brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus the Christ, that only DISHONEST leaders would HIDE things from their flock. The LEADERS of the Jehovah’s Witness are so set on TRYING to prove that Jesus has already returned INVISIBLY that they have stooped to LYING to the Jehovah’s Witnesses by KEEPING information from them.

Need I say anymore than this! How many more errors of interpretations made ny the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society and COVER UPS to you need before you come out from among them or at least try all you know to do to get your LEADERS to teach you to TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God and STOP their SHUNNING practice.

The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society has been teaching you FALSE doctrine so YOU need to share with your leaders the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. BUT BEFORE you do that get the names, the addresses, the emails, and phone numbers of every member of your Kingdom Hall fellowship and any many other fellowship halls so that you can share with them as much of the truth of the whole word of God that you can before you get SHUNNED. Because after you are shunned for just merely sharing the TRUTH with them you will no longer be allowed access to that kind of information. You will be dead to your family and to every other Jehovah's Witness. You will be an apostate to them simply because you QUESTION the teaching of the Watch Tower which CONTRADICTS what the Bible ITSELF teaches.

Please read these other studies in God’s word that I have written for YOU, and all my dear Jehovah’s Witness brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, so that your eyes of understanding will be opened to see and understand the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God and so that you can share the truth with as many of your family members and friends who are Jehovah's Witnesses as you can before you are shunned.

“IS JESUS MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL?”


“DID JESUS DIE ON THE CROSS?”


“DO CHRISTIANS GO TO HEAVEN OR NOT?”


“WATCHTOWER JEHOVAH’S WITNESS TRUTH!”


“IS JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY?”


“IS THE DOCTRINE OF SOUL SLEEP BIBLICAL?”


“WHAT IS THE ONE TRUE CHURCH?”


“IS JEHOVAH GOD’S REAL NAME?”
