Apologetics to Jehovah’s Witnesses
Part 2

The

The Gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ, the rejected King, has died on the cross for the sins of the world, that He was raised from the dead for our justification, and that by Him all that believe are justified from all things.

Bold, but Humble

Meek, but not Weak

Jesus Christ, the rejected King

Died on the Cross for the sins of the world

raised from the dead for our justification

by Him all that believe are justified from all things

The Gospel

GEN 1:1

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

The Gospel

JOH 1:29

“The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

Redemption

Redemption means to deliver by paying a price.

Reconciliation

Because of TLJC’s work on the Cross the barrier between us and God has been torn down, allowing the man-ward side of the cross to be executed.

Propitiation

means that Christ completely satisfied the just demands of a holy God for judgment on sin by His death on the Cross, past present and future…

…This propitiation, or payment for sins, allows God’s righteousness to be satisfied and clearing the way for His mercy & love.

God

JOH 19:30

Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.

The Gospel

Christ arose because of who He is (ACT 2:24)

Christ arose to fulfill the Davidic covenant (2SA 7:12-16; PSA 89:20-37; ISA 9:6-7; LUK 1:31-33; ACT 2:25-31)

Christ arose to be the giver of resurrection life (JOH 10:10-11; JOH 11:25-26; EPH 2:6; COL 3:1-4; 1JO 5:11-12)

Christ arose that He might become the source of resurrection power (MAT 28:18; EPH 1:19-21; PHI 4:13)

Christ arose to be head over the church (EPH 1:0-23)

Salvation is a work of God for man, not a work of man for God

There is a perfect order to God’s grace.

Faith before Fruit!

Dead Works

Anything but the True Gospel is good enough for Satan

Anything!!!

Efficacious Grace:

given to individuals who have made a non-meritorious decision to believe in Christ. God the H.S. makes our faith in Christ effective for salvation.
