False Christians hate using Jehovah's name and in most translations of the bible they have removed God's Name Jehovah and replaced it with "the Lord" so when you read a bible that is not accurate you get the reading, "the Lord"" instead of the actual translation which is Jehovah or Jehovah God. There are scriptures that were prophesied about the True Religion in both the Old and New Testaments that indicates the True religion. However, few are the ones finding the road that leads to life. (Mathew 7:14) Jehovah himself utters that, "You Are My Witnesses." (Isaiah 43:10) Notice in Isaiah 43:11 Jehovah states there is no savior besides him. Jesus gladly gives all credit to his Father saying the Father is Greater than I. (John 14:28) Today, we are to follow Jesus Christ for he IS THE FAITHFUL WITNESS (Rev 1:5) and he is the Head of our Congregation (Col 1:18) Jehovah Witnesses is the One and True Religion. Amen. (Rev 3:14)

Hello Rhonda,



Your correct the KJV and NWT differ.  It's not that the NWT deleted any scriptures but it was the KJV adding to it.  Therefore, you find their translation of the Greek words in Rev 1:11 rather than Rev 1:8 in the NWT.  Actually you can ask for the "Greek Scripture Translations" and see for yourself how every word and sentence is actually translated.  It's awesome. Any JW can get this info for you to study at your leisure. If you read the beginning of (Rev 1:1) you will notice this revelation is by Jesus Christ, which God gave him.  He is NOT Jehovah God but speaks in his behalf. Anyways to be more specific Alpha and Omega means "the beginning and the end" when translated, not the first and the last.  Alpha and Omega are Greek words themselves, so the KJV added the first and last to the scripture.

The King James Bible does say in Rev 1:11 "I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last:"



bellow is verse 10 going into versw 11



10  I was in the Spirit on the Lordís day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

11  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches "



The phrase "I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last:" has not been removed from the NWT it was ADDED to the King James.  Note these other versions



ASV "10  I was in the Spirit on the Lordís day, and I heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet 11  saying, What thou seest, write in a book and send it to the seven churches:"



BBE "10  I was in the Spirit on the Lordís day, and a great voice at my back, as of a horn, came to my ears,11  Saying, What you see, put in a book, and send it to the seven churches;"



DARBEY "10  I became in the Spirit on the Lordís day, and I heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet, 11  saying, What thou seest write in a book, and send to the seven assemblies"



DOUAY "10  I was in the spirit on the Lordís day and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,11  Saying: What thou seest, write in a book and send to the seven churches which are in Asia"



PHILLIPS "10  On the Lordís day I knew myself inspired by the Spirit, and I heard from behind me a voice loud as a trumpet-call, 11  saying, "Write down in a book what you see, and send it to the seven Churches"

Hey ya'll. There is no twisting of scripture here. The scripture at Rev 1:18 is referring to Jesus in that it says, "and I became dead, but, look! I am living forever and ever." I am sure that you are aware that God cannot die yet the one speaking said he became dead but, now is alive. It doesn't get any clearer..........

I can answer most questions regarding the Jehovah's Witnesses' doctrine or their beliefs. I can also help you if you're trying to talk to a Witness, or if you or one of your friends are trying to leave the Witnesses, and are experiencing a "Crisis of Conscience."

Experience

I was a Jehovah's Witness for 13 years, but am no longer with them - so, I know what it's like to be a witness, to harbor doubts, to leave the witnesses, and to finally move on.
