WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000?
Core to Watchtower doctrine is that
only 144,000 humans will go to
heaven, where they are to rule as
kings. This number is based on
misinterpretation of Revelation 7 and
14, and also proven false by
Watchtower's own statistics of the
number of partakers since Jesus.
WATCHTOWER’S VIEW OF 144,000
Most Jehovah's Witnesses are not considered part of the
144,000 and do not expect to go to heaven. Rather, they
believe themselves part of the Great Crowd that will never die,
but rather reside forever on earth.
Prior to 1935, all "true Christians" were said to be anointed and
called to heaven. Therefore, everyone associating with the
Watchtower Society prior to 1935 was automatically part of the
heavenly class. Those who converted after 1935 generally are
told they have an earthly hope. What makes this doctrine quite
absurd is that it indicates God could only find 144,000 true
Christians over a period of 2000 years, yet over 6 million true
Witness Christians since 1935.

WATCHTOWER’S VIEW OF 144,000
WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000?
In Revelation 14, we see the 144,000 in Heaven,
on Mt. Sion, the heavenly mountain of God (the
identification of Mount Sion as a Heavenly
mountain and not the earthly Mount Zion is
confirmed in Hebrews chapter 12). It is clear at
this point that the 144,000 are dead and thus
“redeemed from the Earth”. It is this author’s
contention that the 144,000 will be some of the
first victims of the Great Persecution carried out
by the Antichrist that commences in Revelation
13.

WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000?
Jesus Christ, is not the Mediator
between Jehovah God and all
mankind. He is the Mediator between
his heavenly Father, Jehovah God,
and the nation of spiritual Israel,
which limited to only a 144,000
members.

WATCHTOWER’S VIEW OF 144,000
WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000?
Partaking of the emblems: doctrinal
restrictions
Only the ones who belong to the
144,000 anointed partake of the
emblems (i.e. eat from the bread and
drink from the wine). Thus they show
they belong to the second covenant
and are one with Christ. According to
the Watchtower-doctrine, the
anointed one is apparently under 'a
command' to partake of the bread and
wine (Gal. 6:16; Watchtower 1985,
March 1, Question From Readers).
WHY DO WATCHTOWERS DON’T
PARTAKE IN COMMUNION?
WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000?
So in order to eat the bread and drink
the wine in this day and age 'lawfully',
you have to be (1) baptised as a
Jehovah's witness, (2) 'in good
standing', or at least not
disfellowshipped and (3) believe you
belong to the anointed class.
There are only a few thousands among
the JW's today who still believe they
go to heaven, the other JW's ("great
multitude of other sheep") believe
they will live for ever on paradise
earth. So the great
WHY DO WATCHTOWERS DON’T
PARTAKE IN COMMUNION?
WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000?
majority of Jw's do not drink from the
cup of wine or eat the bread, but
simply "pass" these emblems. Persons
who are present at the memorial, but
are no (baptised) JW's, are instructed
not to partake of the emblems.
In most congregations of Jehovah's
witnesses there are no anointed left,
so the emblems are "merely passed"
and left untouched.

WHAT THE TRIBES REPRESENT?.....CHARACTERISTICS
The 144,000 needs character in order to withstand the global assault against rishts of man.
1) Right to serve God; 2) Right to exist; 3) Right to Private Property, found in the Ten
Commandments. (Exodus 20: 2-11; 12-13,6; 14-15,17).
• Juda (praise) kingly, lawgiver, enrapt the truth
• Reuben – (behold a son) lively
• Gad - (good fortune) confidence, fighter, self preservation; lawgiver; overcomer
• Aser – (blessed) teacher of wisdom, rich blesser
• Nepthali – (my wrestling) cautious, freedom loving, admonisher, rich transactor
• Manasses – (making me to forget) judge
• Simeon – (hearing) deviser, fighter
• Levi – (joined) deviser, fighter, mediator
• Issachar – (a hired worker) servant, adviser
• Zabulon – (in place, dwelling) missionary
• Joseph – (God will add…) administrative, resourceful
• Benjamin – (son of the right hand) divider
THE PLAN OF
SALVATION:
“I will praise the Lord [for]
He has looked on me
[and] granted good
fortune. I am happy
[because] my fortune, God
is making me forget to

[and] is attached to me.
He has purchased me a
dwelling [and] will add to
me the Son of His right
hand.”
WHY ARE THE TRIBES PLACED IN THAT ORDER?
IT REVEALS THE PLAN OF SALVATION:

WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000?
Scripture clearly identifies the 144,000:
they are children of Israel. It is
important to note that when Scripture
uses the term “children of Israel” it is
referring to the lineage of Abraham.
It is not a reference to the Church.
The Church, in their spiritual connection
to Abraham through faith are referred
to as “Jews”
WHO IS A JEW?
WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000?
and the “seed of Abraham” in Scripture,
adopted into the family of God through faith
in Christ. However the term “children of
Israel” refers to national Israel. In the New
Testament, the phrase “children of Israel” is
only used 14 times, and each is a reference to
the descendants of the twelve sons of Jacob
(who was renamed Israel by The Lord). The
144,000 are actual ethnic Israelite
descendants. Scripture goes on to make this
very clear by specifying each tribe:…

ARE THE 144,000 LITERAL JEWS?
Romans 2:28-29
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one
outwardly; neither is that circumcision,
which is outward in the flesh:
29 But he is a Jew, which is one
inwardly; and circumcision is that of the
heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter;
whose praise is not of men, but of God.
(Psalms 73:1; Romans 9:6-8; Esther 8:17)
Deuteronomy 6:1
6 Now these are the commandments, the
statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your
God commanded to teach you, that ye might do
them in the land whither ye go to possess it:

hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine
eyes.

fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the
beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and
over the number of his name, stand on the sea of
glass, having the harps of God.
3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of
God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and
marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just
and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall
come and worship before thee; for thy judgments

Revelation 14:1-5
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount
Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four
thousand, having his Father's name written in their
foreheads.
2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of
many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder:
and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their
harps:
3 And they sung as it were a new song before the
throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders:

hundred and forty and four thousand, which were

therefore the inhabitants of the

Isaiah 13:9-13
9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with
wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he
shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof
shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his
going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to
shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked
for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the
proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the
terrible.
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold;
even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

the Lord will smite all the people that have
fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall

HERE IS ELLEN G. WHITE'S BASIC STATEMENT ON THE 144,000 OF
REVELATION 7 AND 14:
Upon the crystal sea before the throne, that sea of glass as it were
mingled with fire,--so resplendent is it with the glory of God,--are
gathered the company that have "gotten the victory over the beast, and
over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name."
With the Lamb upon Mount Zion, "having the harps of God," they
stand, the hundred and forty and four thousand that were redeemed
from among men; and there is heard, as the sound of many waters, and
as the sound of a great thunder, "the voice of harpers harping with their
harps." ….
HERE IS ELLEN G. WHITE'S BASIC STATEMENT ON THE 144,000 OF
REVELATION 7 AND 14:
And they sing "a new song" before the throne, a song which no
man can learn save the hundred and forty and four thousand. It
is the song of Moses and the Lamb--a song of deliverance.
None but the hundred and forty-four thousand can learn that
song; for it is the song of their experience--an experience such
as no other company have ever had. "These are they which
follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth." These, having been
translated from the earth, from among the living, are counted as
"the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb." Revelation 15:2, 3;
14:1-5. "These are they which came out of great tribulation;"
they have passed through the time of trouble such as never was
since there was a nation; they have endured the anguish of the
time of Jacob's trouble; they have stood without an intercessor
HERE IS ELLEN G. WHITE'S BASIC STATEMENT ON THE 144,000 OF
REVELATION 7 AND 14:
But they have been delivered, for they have "washed their
robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." "In their
mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault" before
God. "Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve
Him day and night in His temple: and He that sitteth on the
throne shall dwell among them." They have seen the earth
wasted with famine and pestilence, the sun having power to
scorch men with great heat, and they themselves have endured
suffering, hunger, and thirst. But "they shall hunger no more,
neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor
any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall
feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters:
and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes." Revelation
JOEL 2:1-3
1Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy
mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day
of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick
darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people
and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be
any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the
land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate
wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
JOEL 2:4-6
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as
horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap,
like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong
people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall
gather blackness.
JOEL 2:7-9
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like
men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they
shall not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path:
and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they
shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like
a thief.
JOEL 2:10-11
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the
sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their
shining:
11 And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is
very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the
Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
who shall be able to stand?

Who are the 144,000

  • 3. WORLD VIEW: • Superheroes with super powers • Sent into this world as spies for the end times • Reincarnated throughout generations • Select group of rulers, warriors and agents of God • Enemy looking for them for thousands of years • Insight into the celestial realm
  • 6. SPECIAL FORCES: Navy Seals Commandoes Special operations Group are trained beyond the average soldier or marine
  • 7. SPECIAL FORCES: Navy Seals Commandoes Special operations Group are trained beyond the average soldier or marine
  • 8. WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000? Core to Watchtower doctrine is that only 144,000 humans will go to heaven, where they are to rule as kings. This number is based on misinterpretation of Revelation 7 and 14, and also proven false by Watchtower's own statistics of the number of partakers since Jesus. WATCHTOWER’S VIEW OF 144,000
  • 9. Most Jehovah's Witnesses are not considered part of the 144,000 and do not expect to go to heaven. Rather, they believe themselves part of the Great Crowd that will never die, but rather reside forever on earth. Prior to 1935, all "true Christians" were said to be anointed and called to heaven. Therefore, everyone associating with the Watchtower Society prior to 1935 was automatically part of the heavenly class. Those who converted after 1935 generally are told they have an earthly hope. What makes this doctrine quite absurd is that it indicates God could only find 144,000 true Christians over a period of 2000 years, yet over 6 million true Witness Christians since 1935. http://www.jwfacts.com/watchtower/144000.php WATCHTOWER’S VIEW OF 144,000
  • 10. WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000? In Revelation 14, we see the 144,000 in Heaven, on Mt. Sion, the heavenly mountain of God (the identification of Mount Sion as a Heavenly mountain and not the earthly Mount Zion is confirmed in Hebrews chapter 12). It is clear at this point that the 144,000 are dead and thus “redeemed from the Earth”. It is this author’s contention that the 144,000 will be some of the first victims of the Great Persecution carried out by the Antichrist that commences in Revelation 13. http://beginningandend.com/who-are-the- WATCHTOWER’S VIEW OF 144,000
  • 11. WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000? Jesus Christ, is not the Mediator between Jehovah God and all mankind. He is the Mediator between his heavenly Father, Jehovah God, and the nation of spiritual Israel, which limited to only a 144,000 members. 31 - 144,000 LIES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KXBWcCWijY WATCHTOWER’S VIEW OF 144,000
  • 12. WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000? Partaking of the emblems: doctrinal restrictions Only the ones who belong to the 144,000 anointed partake of the emblems (i.e. eat from the bread and drink from the wine). Thus they show they belong to the second covenant and are one with Christ. According to the Watchtower-doctrine, the anointed one is apparently under 'a command' to partake of the bread and wine (Gal. 6:16; Watchtower 1985, March 1, Question From Readers). WHY DO WATCHTOWERS DON’T PARTAKE IN COMMUNION?
  • 13. WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000? So in order to eat the bread and drink the wine in this day and age 'lawfully', you have to be (1) baptised as a Jehovah's witness, (2) 'in good standing', or at least not disfellowshipped and (3) believe you belong to the anointed class. There are only a few thousands among the JW's today who still believe they go to heaven, the other JW's ("great multitude of other sheep") believe they will live for ever on paradise earth. So the great WHY DO WATCHTOWERS DON’T PARTAKE IN COMMUNION?
  • 14. WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000? majority of Jw's do not drink from the cup of wine or eat the bread, but simply "pass" these emblems. Persons who are present at the memorial, but are no (baptised) JW's, are instructed not to partake of the emblems. In most congregations of Jehovah's witnesses there are no anointed left, so the emblems are "merely passed" and left untouched. http://christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/56 07/do-jehovahs-witnesses-celebrate-communion WHY DO WATCHTOWERS DON’T PARTAKE IN COMMUNION?

  • 32. WATCHTOWER DOCTRINE REGARDING THE 144,000? Scripture clearly identifies the 144,000: they are children of Israel.

Isaiah 13:9-13 9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. 10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. 11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. 12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. 13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

  • 44. HERE IS ELLEN G. WHITE'S BASIC STATEMENT ON THE 144,000 OF REVELATION 7 AND 14: And they sing "a new song" before the throne, a song which no man can learn save the hundred and forty and four thousand. It is the song of Moses and the Lamb--a song of deliverance. None but the hundred and forty-four thousand can learn that song; for it is the song of their experience--an experience such as no other company have ever had. "These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth." These, having been translated from the earth, from among the living, are counted as "the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb." Revelation 15:2, 3; 14:1-5.

"Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple: and He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them." They have seen the earth wasted with famine and pestilence, the sun having power to scorch men with great heat, and they themselves have endured suffering, hunger, and thirst. But "they shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes." Revelation
