The Last Witness

Are you ready for a friendly challenge? If you are then read on!

A good witness testifies truly. Concerning God and salvation, the last

Word, or the last witness must be the Bible when it's interpreted properly.

Lets's look at it.

QUESTION: Can a person KNOW he's got eternal life?

ANSWER: "These things have I written unto you that you believe of the

Son of God; that ye may KNOW that ye have eternal life..."

I John 5:13

QUESTION: Was the BODY of Jesus resurrected?

ANSWER: "Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and

in three days I will raise it up...But he spake of the temple

of his BODY." John 2:19,21

"Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me,

and see; for a spirit hath not FLESH and BONES, as ye see me

have." Luke 24:39

"Then saith him to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold

my HANDS; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into MY SIDE"

John 20:27

QUESTION: Was Jesus ever Michael the Archangel (as it's claimed in 'THE


ANSWER: Impossible! Jesus was never an angel (Hebrews 1:4,8-13).

Jesus created EVERTHING in the HEAVENS and the earth, visible

and INVISIBLE - that includes angels (Colossians 1:16).

"All things were made by him..." (John 1:3)

Jesus ALLWAYS was (Micah 5.2), therefor He was not created.

QUESTION: Are we saved by works in any way, shape or form?

ANSWER: "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according

to his MERCY HE SAVED US, by the washing of regeneration, and

renewing of the Holy Spirit." Titus 3:5

"For by GRACE (underserved kindness) are ye SAVED THROUGH FAITH

and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of GOD, not or works,

lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8,9

Works can be EVIDENCE of the KIND of faith that saves. Also,

see Romans 3:20, 4:5.

We must believe that Christ died for our sins and rose from the

dead (I Corinthians 15:3,4). Accept Him as your own personal

Saviour and Lord (Romans 10:9). Remember, He PHYSICALLY rose

from the dead.

QUESTION: Is the Holy Spirit a person or an active force of God?

ANSWER: "Howbeit when HE, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide

you into all truth: for HE shall not speak of HIMSELF; but

whatsoever HE shall hear, that shall HE speak: and HE will

show you things to come." John 16:13

"...the Holy Ghost SAID, separate ME Barnabas and Saul for

the work whereonto I have called them." Acts 13:2

Can you grieve a force or blaspheme a force? NO. But you can

to a person, and that's what you can do to the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 4:30

Matthew 12:31

QUESTION: Did Christ return in 1914?

ANSWER: "Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold he is in the

desert; go not forth; behold, he is in the SECRET chambers;

beleive it NOT. For as the lightning cometh out of the east,

and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the comming of

the Son of man be." Matthew 24:26,27

"...Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?

This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,


HEAVEN." Acts 1:11

QUESTION: Who is Jesus Christ?

ANSWER: Isaiah 45:11,12,18 ....... JEHOVAH CREATOR

Col. 1:16, John 1:3 ...... CHRIST CREATOR

Isaiah 45:23 ............. KNEE BOW TO JEHOVAH

Phil. 2:9,10 ............. KNEE BOW TO CHRIST

Isaiah 44:6 .............. JEHOVAH KING

Mark 15:2-5 .............. CHRIST KING

Isaiah 45:24 ............. JEHOVAH, RIGHTEOUS-STRENGTH

I John 2:1, Col. 1:29 .... CHRIST, RIGHTEOUS-STRENGTH

Exodus 20:1-5 ............ WORSHIP ONLY JEHOVAH

Heb. 1:6 ................. WORSHIP CHRIST

(Christ worshipped - Matt. 28:9,17, Jn. 20:28)

II Corinthians 6:16 ...... GOD IN US

Romans 8:10 .............. CHRIST IN US

Joel 2:32 ................ CALLS ON THE NAME OF JEHOVAH

Rom. 10:9-13, Acts 7:59 .. CALLS ON THE NAME JESUS

Psalms 23:1 .............. JEHOVAH, SHEPHERD

John 10:11 ............... CHRIST, SHEPHERD

Revelation 1:8 ........... JEHOVAH, FIRST & LAST

Revelation 1:17,18 ....... CHRIST, FIRST & LAST

Revelation 1:8 ........... JEHOVAH, ALPHA & OMEGA

Revelation 22:12,13 ...... CHRIST, ALPHA & OMEGA

Exodus 3:14 .............. JEHOVAH, I AM

John 5:58 ................ CHRIST, I AM

Are there TWO Kings? TWO Shepherds? TWO Creators? TWO Firsts

and Lasts? That is a resounding NO. We're talking about the

same person, that is, the same ESSENCE, the same NATURE.

God (He didn't try to hang onto His equality with God, but

humbled Himself and became a man, made temporarily lower than

angels (Hebrews 2:9). BUT, He would be restored to His former

glory and receive it again (John 17:5).

He could say, "...my Father is greater that I" (John 14:28), but

He never said, "...my Father is BETTER than I". "BETTER" is a

comparison between natures (Heb. 1:4) - whereas "GREATER" is a

comparison of POSITIONS, that resulted when Christ humbled

himself to come down to earth and die for us. Our President is

greater in POSITION, but not necessarily better by NATURE than

any of us. The Son inheroted the nature of His Father when He

was born in the flesh. That nature is DIETY. Jesus also has

that nature when He was with the Father before His physical


"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth

a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being

interpreted is, GOD IS WITH US." Matthew 1:23

QUESTION: Is the Holy Spirit God?

ANSWER: Acts 5:3 "...lie to the Holy Ghost"

Acts 5:4 "...not lied to man, but unto GOD"

I Cor. 3:16 "...ye are the temple of GOD..."

I Cor. 6:19 "...your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost"

Romans 8:9 "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the SPIRIT,

if so be that the spirit of GOD dwell in you. Now

if any man have not the Spirit of CHRIST, he is

none of His."

QUESTION: Do the wicked suffer forever?

ANSWER: "And the smoke of their TORMENT ascendeth up FOREVER and

EVER; and they have NO rest day or night, who worship the

beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his

name" Revelation 14:11 (This speaks of a majority of the

earths population living at that time. Revelation 13:8).

For humanity in general, see Revelation 21:8 which seems to

describe a similar fate where it talks of the lake of fire.

QUESTION: Was the times of the Gentiles fulfiled in 1914?

ANSWER: Luke 21:24 speaks of the literal Jerusalem, just like it does

in verse 20. The eariest possible time that you could say

that Jerusalem was no longer trodden down of the Gentiles was

in the June, 1967 war, which Israel got old Jerusalem back for

the first time in some 3,500 years. Yes, God is still dealing

with the nation of Israel as is plain in Romans 11:25.

Hopefully, this paper will be a help to you, and that you wil ask

Jesus into your life as Lord and Saviour if you haven't yet. If you do, or
