1. Jehovah declares that he deceives the prophets, therefore, he lies (Ezek. 14:6-10). Does he kill, afterwards?
2. Jehovah deceived Jeremiah (Jer. 20:7,8).
3. Jeremiah accuses Jehovah of deceiving Israel (Jer. 4:10).
4. He deceived Ahab through 400 prophets (1 Kings 22:5-6; 19-23). In order to kill Ahab, he used the artifice of a lie.
5. Jehovah says that nobody has ever oppressed Israel (1 Chr. 16:20-22; Is. 54:10-11). We mention here texts where Israel was oppressed: Judg. 2:13-16; 3:8-9,12-15. “Then the sons of Israel again did evil in the sight of Jehovah, after Ehud died. And Jehovah sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor; and the commander of his army was Sisera, who lived in Harosheth-hagoyim. And the sons of Israel cried to Jehovah; for he had nine hundred iron chariots, and he oppressed the sons of Israel severely for twenty years” (Judg. 4:1-3). Jehovah oppressed Israel (Judg. 6:1-10; 10:6-10; 13:1; Is. 60:14).
6. Jehovah said that he was going to destroy death forever (Is. 25:8), and perpetrated it instead (Is. 65:17-25; 66:22-24).
7. He said that he was going to forgive Israel in the desert (Ezek. 20:13-17) but destroyed them (Num. 14:18-23; 26-37). “‘And I will dash them against each other, both the fathers and the sons together,’ declares Jehovah. ‘I will not show pity nor be sorry nor have compassion that I should not destroy them’” (Jer. 13:14).
8. Jehovah created the destroyer (Is. 54:16) to destroy his people (Is. 6:11-12; 61:3-4; Joel 1:7-12). The destructions should end in 70 years (Dan. 9:2). They have not ended until today: Under the Greeks, Antiochus Epifanes took an idol into the Holy of Holies; under the Romans, there was the slaughter of children by Herod the Great; Titus and Vespasianus destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple; and there was the great holocaust of six million Jews killed under the power of Hitler.
9. Jehovah chose Jeroboam (1 Kings 11:29-37). He lied, and afterwards accused Israel of having chosen him (2 Kings 17:20-21).
10. He promised a rest during the kingdom of Solomon (1 Chr. 22:9-10). It did not happen, since Solomon never had peace in his kingdom (1 Kings 11:14-25). He lied.
11. The Aaronic priesthood would be eternal (Ex. 40:13-15; 1 Chr. 23:13). Considering that it was changed, it came to an end (Heb. 7:11-12).
12. Jehovah said that the one who kept the law would live (Lev. 18:5; Ezek. 20:11; Rom. 5:12). Death reigned until Christ (Rom. 5:17; Matt. 8:21-22). No one is justified before God by the law, though.
13. Jehovah considers himself Almighty (Gen. 17:1). Nobody escapes his hands (Deut. 32:39; Is. 43:13; 14:27; 1 Sam. 2:3-10). He is the potter (Jer. 18:1-6; Is. 63:8). The devil was stronger, as we read in Rom. 8:19-21. He did not keep Adam, David, Salomon or Israel. He lied, for he never keeps anyone. And Israel accuses him (Is. 63:17).
14. The earth was created formless and empty (Gen. 1:2). Jehovah says that he did not create it empty (Is. 45:18). Who lied?
15. Jehovah says that he thinks evil and not good (Jer. 18:11; 21:10). Later, he says that he thinks good, and not evil (Jer. 29:11).
16. Jehovah says that he takes no pleasure in the death of the one who dies (Ezek. 18:32). But he shut the ears of Hophni and Phinehas, because he wanted to kill them (1 Sam. 2:25; Gen. 38:6-7).
17. He testified to David walking in his ways (1 Kings 11:38). David did not walk in his ways, though (2 Sam. 12:7-12).
18. Jehovah said that parents would not die for their children, neither the children for their parents (Deut. 24:16; Is. 14:21). He killed Eli for the sins of his sons Hophni and Phineas (1 Sam. 2:22-25; 12-17). He killed David’s son for the sin of his father (2 Sam. 12:15-19).
19. Jehovah does not show partiality (Deut. 10:17) but declared to have favored Israel and not Egypt (Ex. 11:6-7; Amos 3:2; Deut. 14:1-2).
20. He gave orders to Moses concerning the sacrifices and burnt offerings (Ex. 20:24). And, in Jer. 7:21,22, he denied having given such order.
21. He assured Abraham that he would not kill the righteous with the unrighteous (Gen. 18:24-32). And he did the opposite, killing righteous and wicked together (Ezek. 21:1-4).
22. He said that he does not make use of violence (Zach. 4:6), and in reality he uses it (Ezek. 20:33; Ps. 7:11-13).
23. He asked the people to turn from his ways (Ezek. 33:11). Afterwards, he did not accept their repentance (Jer. 11:14; 13:14; Ex. 8:18).
24. Haggai and Zachariah preached the end of the captivity after 70 years (Jer. 25:12; 29:10-14; Dan. 9:2). Zerubbabel restored the temple in 538 BC, when he returned with 42,000 men. In 456, Esra took 1,755 men to Jerusalem. The prophecy was that the glory of the second temple would be greater than the glory of the first one (Hag.2:9). The temple of Solomon stood for 360 years and the one of Zerubbabel for 195 years. Antiochus Epiphanius defiled it through the offerings of pigs, in 170 BC. Therefore, the prophecy of Haggai 2:9 was not true. Nebuzaradan burnt he temple in the year 587 BC.
25. The history was like this: the decree of Cyrus was in 534 BC. The work took 21 years. It was finished in 515 BC. Esra went to Jerusalem in 458 BC, according to Esra 1:1-2. The second temple has not become glorious, until today. A lie.
