THE NWT TESTIFIES THAT THE TRINITY IS THE ETERNAL CREATOR!

In this relatively short, post I will show from the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ own perverted Bible translation that the one true Creator God is Triune. I will be using the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (Study Edition).

According to the Hebrew Bible, Jehovah created and gives life to all creation all by himself, without anyone assisting him:

“And the Levites Jeshʹu·a, Kadʹmi·el, Baʹni, Hash·ab·neiʹah, She·re·biʹah, Ho·diʹah, Sheb·a·niʹah, and Peth·a·hiʹah said: ‘Stand up and praise Jehovah your God throughout all eternity. And let them praise your glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise. You alone are Jehovah; you made the heavens, yes, the heaven of the heavens and all their army, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. And you preserve all of them alive, and the army of the heavens are bowing down to you.’” Nehemiah 9:5-6

“He spreads out the heavens BY HIMSELF, And he treads upon the high waves of the sea.” Job 9:8

“YOUR OWN HANDS have shaped me and made me, But now you would completely destroy me.  Remember, please, that you made me out of clay, But now you make me return to dust. Did you not pour me out like milk And curdle me like cheese? With skin and flesh you clothed me, And with bones and sinews you wove me together. You have given me life and loyal love; You have guarded my spirit with your care.” Job 10:8-12

“Did not THE ONE who made me in the womb also make them? Was it not THE SAME ONE who formed us before our birth?” Job 31:15

“I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not hold them back. Bring my sons from afar, and my daughters from the ends of the earth, Everyone who is called by my name And whom I created FOR MY OWN GLORY, Whom I have formed and made.’… The wild beast of the field will honor me, The jackals and the ostriches, For I provide water in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert, For my people, my chosen one, to drink The people whom I formed FOR MYSELF So that they might declare my praise.” Isaiah 43:6-7, 20-21

“This is what Jehovah says, your Repurchaser, Who formed you since you were in the womb: ‘I am Jehovah, who made everything. I stretched out the heavens BY MYSELF, And I spread out the earth. WHO WAS WITH ME?’” Isaiah 44:24

“I made the earth and created man on it. I stretched out the heavens with MY OWN HANDS,… For this is what Jehovah says, The Creator of the heavens, the true God, The One who formed the earth, its Maker who firmly established it, Who did not create it simply for nothing, but formed it to be inhabited: ‘I am Jehovah, and there is no one else.’” Isaiah 45:12, 18

“For my own sake, for my own sake I will act, For how could I let myself be profaned? I give my glory to no one else. Listen to me, O Jacob, and Israel, whom I have called. I am the same One. I am the first; I am also the last. MY OWN HAND laid the foundation of the earth, And MY RIGHT HAND spread out the heavens. When I call to them, they stand up together.” Isaiah 48:11-13

And yet despite having created everything by his own hands, i.e. his own infinite power, the same prophetic writings proclaim that God created and sustains all things by his Spirit:

God’s own spirit made me, And the Almighty’s own breath brought me to life.” Job 33:4

“When you hide your face, they are disturbed. If you take away their spirit, they die and return to the dust. If you send out your spirit, they are created, And you renew the surface of the ground.” Psalm 104:29-30

And according to the Christian Scriptures, Jesus is the very First and Last whom the Father employed to create and give life to the entire creation, being the One who has sovereign power over life and death:

“When I saw him, I fell as dead at his feet. And he laid his right hand on me and said: ‘Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last, and the living one, and I became dead, but look! I am living forever and ever, and I have the keys of death and of the Grave.’” Revelation 1:17-18

“All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence. What has come into existence by means of him was life, and the life was the light of men… The true light that gives light to every sort of man was about to come into the world. He was in the world, and the world came into existence through him, but the world did not know him… So the Word became flesh and resided among us, and we had a view of his glory, a glory such as belongs to an only-begotten son from a father; and he was full of divine favor and truth.” John 1:3-4, 9-10, 14

“there is actually to us one God, the Father, from whom all things are and we for him; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are and we through him.” 1 Corinthians 8:6

“Who drew out to self us out of the authority of the darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the Son of the love of him, in whom we are having the release by ransom, the letting go off of the sins; who is the image of the God the invisible, firstborn of all creation because IN HIM it was created the all (things) in the heavens and upon the earth, the (things) visible and the (things) invisible, whether thrones or lordships or governments or authorities; the all (things) THROUGH HIM and INTO HIM it has been created; and he IS before all (things) and the all (things) IN HIM it has stood together, and he is the head of the body, of the ecclesia; who is the beginning, firstborn out of the dead (ones), in order that might become in all (things) he holding the first place,” Colossians 1:13-18 The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures

“Long ago God spoke to our forefathers by means of the prophets on many occasions and in many ways. Now at the end of these days he has spoken to us by means of a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the systems of things. He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact representation of his very being, and he sustains all things by the word of his power. And after he had made a purification for our sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high… And: ‘At the beginning, O Lord [the Son], YOU laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the works of YOUR HANDS. They will perish, but you will remain; and just like a garment, they will all wear out, and YOU will wrap them up just as a cloak, as a garment, and they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will never come to an end.’” Hebrews 1:1-3, 10-12

Astonishingly, Hebrews has God the Father glorifying and praising his Son by ascribing the following Psalm to him,

“O Jehovah, hear my prayer; Let my cry for help reach you… But you remain forever, O Jehovah, And your fame will endure for all generations… Long ago you laid the foundations of the earth, And the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; Just like a garment they will all wear out. Just like clothing you will replace them, and they will pass away. But you are the same, and your years will never end.” Psalm 102:1, 12, 25-27

An OT text which magnifies Jehovah as the unchangeable Creator and Sustainer of all creation!

Hence, even the JW’s own Bible perversion bears witness that the one true eternal Creator and Sustainer whose name is Jehovah is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!

“Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying: ‘All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the NAME of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.’” Matthew 28:18-20
