MY Tract Showing that Jesus is the Amighty GOD JEHOVAH

Notice in following passage three men appeared to Abraham two men are identified as angels 19:1 while one of the men is identified as Jehovah God, not a representive of him but actually Jehovah. Read the text right out of the NWT . John 1:18 says no one has seen the God the Father so here again we can conclude this was the pre-incarnate Jesus. 


1 Afterward Jehovah appeared to him among the big trees of Mam′re, while he was sitting at the entrance of the tent about the heat of the day.2 When he raised his eyes, then he looked and there three men were standing some distance from him. When he caught sight of them he began running to meet them from the entrance of the tent and proceeded to bow down to the earth.3 Then he said: “Jehovah, if, now, I have found favor in your eyes, please do not pass by your servant.4 Let a little water be taken, please, and ​YOU​ must have ​YOUR​ feet washed. Then recline under the tree.5 And let me get a piece of bread, and refresh ​YOUR​ hearts. Following that, ​YOU​ can pass on, because that is why ​YOU​ have passed this way to ​YOUR​ servant.” At this they said: “All right. You may do just as you have spoken.”

6 So Abraham went hurrying to the tent to Sarah and said: “Hurry! Get three seah measures of fine flour, knead the dough and make round cakes.”7 Next Abraham ran to the herd and proceeded to get a tender and good young bull and to give it to the attendant, and he went hurrying to get it ready.8 He then took butter and milk and the young bull that he had got ready and set it before them. Then he himself kept standing by them under the tree as they were eating.

9 They now said to him: “Where is Sarah your wife?” To this he said: “Here in the tent!”10 So he continued: “I am surely going to return to you next year at this time, and, look! Sarah your wife will have a son.” Now Sarah was listening at the tent entrance, and it was behind the man.11 And Abraham and Sarah were old, being advanced in years. Sarah had stopped having menstruation.12 Hence Sarah began to laugh inside herself, saying: “After I am worn out, shall I really have pleasure, my lord being old besides?”13 Then Jehovah said to Abraham: “Why was it that Sarah laughed, saying, ‘Shall I really and truly give birth although I have become old?’14 Is anything too extraordinary for Jehovah? At the appointed time I shall return to you, next year at this time, and Sarah will have a son.”15 But Sarah began to deny it, saying: “I did not laugh!” For she was afraid. At this he said: “No! but you did laugh.”

16 Later the men got up from there and looked down toward Sod′om, and Abraham was walking with them to escort them.17 And Jehovah said: “Am I keeping covered from Abraham what I am doing?18 Why, Abraham is surely going to become a nation great and mighty, and all the nations of the earth must bless themselves by means of him.19 For I have become acquainted with him in order that he may command his sons and his household after him so that they shall keep Jehovah’s way to do righteousness and judgment; in order that Jehovah may certainly bring upon Abraham what he has spoken about him.”

20 Consequently Jehovah said: “The cry of complaint about Sod′om and Gomorrah, yes, it is loud, and their sin, yes, it is very heavy.21 I am quite determined to go down that I may see whether they act altogether according to the outcry over it that has come to me, and, if not, I can get to know it.”

22 At this point the men turned from there and got on their way to Sod′om; but as for Jehovah, he was still standing before Abraham.23 Then Abraham approached and began to say: “Will you really sweep away the righteous with the wicked?24 Suppose there are fifty righteous men in the midst of the city. Will you, then, sweep them away and not pardon the place for the sake of the fifty righteous who are inside it?25 It is unthinkable of you that you are acting in this manner to put to death the righteous man with the wicked one so that it has to occur with the righteous man as it does with the wicked! It is unthinkable of you. Is the Judge of all the earth not going to do what is right?”26 Then Jehovah said: “If I shall find in Sod′om fifty righteous men in the midst of the city I will pardon the whole place on their account.”27 But Abraham went on to answer and say: “Please, here I have taken upon myself to speak to Jehovah, whereas I am dust and ashes.28 Suppose the fifty righteous should be lacking five. Will you for the five bring the whole city to ruin?” To this he said: “I shall not bring it to ruin if I find there forty‐five.”

29 But yet again he spoke further to him and said: “Suppose forty are found there.” In turn he said: “I shall not do it on account of the forty.”30 But he continued: “May Jehovah, please, not grow hot with anger, but let me go on speaking: Suppose thirty are found there.” In turn he said: “I shall not do it if I find thirty there.”31 But he continued on: “Please, here I have taken upon myself to speak to Jehovah: Suppose twenty are found there.” In turn he said: “I shall not bring it to ruin on account of the twenty.”32 Finally he said: “May Jehovah, please, not grow hot with anger, but let me speak just this once: Suppose ten are found there.” In turn he said: “I shall not bring it to ruin on account of the ten.”33 Then Jehovah went his way when he had finished speaking to Abraham, and Abraham returned to his place.

1 Now the two angels arrived at Sod′om by evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sod′om. When Lot caught sight of them, then he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the earth.

the biblical use of the word "firstborn" is most interesting. It can mean the first born child in a family (Luke 2:7), but it can also mean "pre-eminence." In Psalm 89:20, 27 it says, "I have found David My servant; with My holy oil I have anointed him...I also shall make him My first-born" (NASB). As you can see, David, who was the last one born in his family was called the firstborn by God. This is a title of preeminence.

 Gen. 41:51-52, "And Joseph called the name of the first-born Manasseh: For, said he, God hath made me forget all my toil, and all my fatherï's house. And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath made me fruitful in the land of my affliction" (NASB)

 Jer. 31:9, "...for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn (NASB

Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses have misapplied the word Firstborn to mean Jesus was a firstborn of many children by God by Mormons and Jehovah Witness say it means First created 

 The way the Holy Spirit finally reached me that Jesus is Jehovah actually came about from what the WT Org taught me about the name YHWH, that it had stopped being pronounced so we had lost how to say it, because what was said instead of God's name was LORD (Adonai in Hebrew; Kyrios in Greek). And that English Bibles show where YHWH is in the Hebrew text by using LORD there. So here comes 1 Corinthians 12:3 no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. That had to mean Jesus is Jehovah. And in fact the Aramaic Bible in Plain English has it as: neither can a man say, “Yeshua is THE LORD JEHOVAH”, except by The Spirit of Holiness.

It would be interesting to see what the 25 Hebrew translations have there, the ones the WT Org uses to insert the name Jehovah into the NT. I know some of them show Jesus is Jehovah in Paul's encounter with him on the road to Damascus.

Romans 10:9-13

"9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. 11 For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. 13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”"

Two different parts of scripture are used here by Paul. One is that of Isaiah 28:16 where The Father has laid the cornerstone (Jesus) and Joel 2:32.

Supporting scripture:

Acts 4:11 "11 This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone."

Psalm 118:22-23 "22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone."

Isaiah 8:13-15 "13 But the Lord of hosts, him you shall honor as holy. Let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14 And he will become a sanctuary and a stone of offense and a rock of stumbling to both houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15 And many shall stumble on it. They shall fall and be broken; they shall be snared and taken.”"

1 Corinthians 1:23 "23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,"

Isaiah 28:16 "16 therefore thus says the Lord God,
“Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion,
a stone, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation:
‘Whoever believes will not be in haste.’"

Then Paul uses Joel 2:32. This is directly applied to Jesus as we can see from verse 11. Verse 11 says exactly to whom we are to call upon, "the same Lord is Lord of all"

Joel 2:32 "32 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the Lord calls."

This is again supported by 1 Corinthians 1:2 "2 To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours:"

What Did Isaiah See?

Jn 12:37-41 “But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: “Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again: “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, Lest they should see with their eyes, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.” These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke of Him.”

The subject [Him] is Jesus. John states that when Isaiah wrote these words down he saw Jesus. But when did Isaiah see Jesus for Isaiah lived during the 8th century BC? Note it was when Isaiah said the above things.

Is 6:10-11 And He said, “Go, and tell this people: ‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’ “Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; Lest they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And return and be healed.”

So what did Isaiah see when he wrote this.
Is 6:1-4 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” … 5… For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts.”

Isaiah wrote that he saw God in all His Glory. John states that Isaiah saw Jesus. Now some say that what Isaiah saw was the glory of God that was bestowed on Jesus.
Is 42:8 I am the Lord, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.

Side Note: Is 6:8Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

Jesus states that no one has seen or heard The Father.
Jn 6:46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father.
Jn 5:37 And the Father Himself, who sent Me, mhas testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nnor seen His form.

Luke writes in Acts that it was the HS that spoke to Isaiah.
Acts 28:25 The Holy Spirit was right in saying to your fathers through Isaiah the prophet: 26 "Go to this people, and say, You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. 27 For this people's heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them.'

Premise 1 John states that Isaiah saw the glory of Jesus.
Premise 2 Isaiah states he saw the glory of God
Premise 3 God states that He does not share His glory with anyone.
Premise 4 Jesus states that no one has seen or heard the Father.
Premise 5 Luke states that it was the HS that spoke to Isaiah
Premise 6 We have plurality in Is 6:8

 Conclusion Isaiah saw and heard the Triune God.

* The divinity of Jesus Christ is further illustrated in John 8:58. Jesus said, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am”, which means that Jesus existed before His human life on earth.
