Andy Webb meets with an Jehovah’s Witness:
Odd Providence: I ran into a Jehovah’s Witness at the Redbox today. She offered me a copy of AWAKE through her car window, and I declined but asked her if she thought the bible teaches that we are allowed to worship anyone but God. She said no. I asked her then if we should worship angels. She said no. I asked her if God the father ever commanded the angels to worship another angel. She said no. I asked her if she thought Jesus was an angel. She said yes, Jesus is the Archangel Michael.
So I asked her if she would turn to Heb. 1 and read verses 1-8:
Hebrews 1:1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,
2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For to which of the angels did He ever say: “You are My Son, Today I have begotten You”? And again: “I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son”?
6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: “Let all the angels of God worship Him.”
7 And of the angels He says: “Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire.”
8 But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom.
I asked her how she explained verses 3, 5, 6 and 8? I got the same canned responses about our sons being our image, but not us, that Joy got yesterday. I said, you’re not answering the question, why does Jehovah tell the angels to worship the Son? Her answer, was that I didn’t understand what it means. No ma’am respectfully, what you’ve been taught prevents you from understanding the plain meaning of scripture. You need to do what the Father tells the angels to do and worship Jesus, the Son of God.
