The Kingdom of heaven belongs to Jesus, to the glory of Jehovah

What is more important: the shadow or the reality?


WatchTower doctrines give more importance to the shadow than to the reality.

In the 1914 doctrine the Society cites 1 Chronicles 29:23 that reads:

'And Solomon began to sit upon Jehovah’s throne as king in place of David his father'

The WT uses it saying that after 607 BCE, with the destruction of Jerusalem, Jehovah's throne became vacant or unoccupied during a period of 2520 years.

As I will demonstrate here, WatchTower doctrines gives more importance to the shadow than the reality.

I will prove using Scriptures that Jehovah gave His Throne to Jesus even in the first century:

When Jesus walked on earth he said:

Luke 11:31 look! something more than Solomon is here.

Yes, Jesus The King, more than Solomon:

For everyone who was an Israelite for a certainty ,in whom there is no deceit, there was a King after 607 BCE:

John 1:47,49
See, an Israelite for a certainty, in whom there is no deceit.”
Nathanael answered him: “Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are King of Israel.”

Jesus, The King of Israel, was a King greater than Solomon, David, Hezekiah, Jehoshaphat, Joshua:

Luke 11:31 look! something more than Solomon is here.

John 7:29 “I know him, because I am a representative from him, and that One sent me forth.”

Did Solomon say that?

Colossians 2:17 for those things [Solomon, David, Hezekiah, Jehoshaphat, Joshua] are a shadow of the things to come, but the reality belongs to the Christ.

Did Jesus sit in upon Jehovah’s throne? Where? When?

Solomon, David, Hezekiah, Jehoshaphat, Joshua had sat in the shadow of Jehovah's throne.

The heaven is Jehova's throne' - Acts 7:49

Jesus sat in the TRUE/REAL throne of God, in heaven:

Acts 2:34 Actually David did not ascend to the heavens, but he himself says, ‘Jehovah said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, 35 until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.”’ 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for a certainty that God made him both Lord [KING] and Christ, this Jesus whom YOU impaled.”

Solomon, David, Hezekiah, Jehoshaphat, Joshua had sat in the shadow of Jehovah's throne. 
But the reality belongs to the Christ.

1 Peter 3:21,22
Jesus Christ. He is at God’s right hand, for he went his way to heaven; and angels and authorities and powers were made subject to him.

Did Jehovah ever say such things to Solomon, David, Hezekiah, Jehoshaphat, Joshua??

““Jesus, Sit at my right hand” - upon Jehovah's throne (Rev 3:21)

Did Solomon, David, Hezekiah, Jehoshaphat, Joshua go to heaven and angels and authorities and powers were made subject to them??

As I said, WatchTower doctrines gives more importance to the shadow than to the reality.

Philippians 2:9 For this very reason also God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground, 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

Should we bend our knee in the name of Solomon??
Should angels in heaven bend their knee in the name of Solomon??

the reality belongs to Jesus Christ

every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord [King of heaven] to the glory of God the Father

God exalted him”

Hebrews 12:2 as we look intently at the Chief Agent [King] and Perfecter of our faith,Jesus. For the joy that was set before him he endured a torture stake, despising shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Jesus has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Rev 3: 21 To the one that conquers I will grant to sit down with me on my throne, even as I conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.

John 16:33 "I have conquered the world.”

The one who sat down in the Throne is called King – to be enthroned – to sit in the throne.

Jehovah exalted Jesus as King of The Kingdom of the Heaven – long before 1914.

Colossians 2:10 And so YOU are possessed of a fullness by means of him [Jesus], who is the head of all government and authority.

Colossians 3:1 If, however, YOU were raised up with the Christ, go on seeking the things above, where the Christ is seated at the right hand of God. [as King]

Jehovah gave the rulership of the Kingdom of heaven to Jesus when Jesus ascend to heaven – there was no vacancy during 2520 years.

Ephesians 1:20 with which he has operated in the case of the Christ when he raised him up from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above every government and authority and power and lordship+ and every name named, not only in this system of things, but also in that to come. 22 He also subjected all things under his feet, and made him head over all things to the congregation, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills up all things in all.

Did Jehovah make such things for Solomon, David, Hezekiah, Jehoshaphat, Joshua??

and seated Jesus at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above every government and authority and power and lordship and every name named, not only in this system of things, but also in that to come.”

The Shadow: 1 Chronicles 29:23 that reads:
'And Solomon began to sit upon Jehovah’s throne as king in place of David his father'

The Reality: Jesus King of The Kingdom of Heaven

'And Jesus began to sit upon Jehovah’s throne as king in the heavenly places, 21 far above every government and authority and power and lordship and every name named, not only in this system of things, but also in that to come.
God exalted Jesus to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in HEAVEN and those on earth and those under the ground, 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord [KING] to the glory of [Jehovah] God the Father

There is no place in the Scriptures that affirm that Jesus became King of the Kingdom of Heaven ONLY in 1914 after 2520 years.

1914 is an eisegesis - a man made doctrine.

The Bible exegesis is crystal clear, plainly simple: Jesus was enthrone by Jehovah as King of The Kingdom of Heaven after Jesus ascending to heaven.

WatchTower doctrines gives more importance to the shadow than to the reality.

Reality: The Kingdom of heaven belongs to our Lord [King,Kaiser, August, Emperor] Jesus, since first century a.D, to the glory of Jehovah


John 5:23 in order that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He that does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.

Honor the King Jesus! to the glory of the Father!! (1 Peter 2:17, Rev 1:5)

 'nobody can say: “Jesus is Lord!” except by holy spirit.' (1 Corinthians 12:3)
