Isaiah 43:11 as found in the:

New World Translation of the Scriptures
Rendered from the Original Languages
by the
New World Bible Translation Committee
Revised 1970 C.E. 

and as found in the New World Translation currently on-line HERE, reads:

11I—I am Jehovah, and besides me there is no savior.”  (Isaiah 43:11, NWT read HERE)

Now compare Jehovah’s statement to just a couple other passages found also in the New World Translation:

Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained a faith, held in equal privilege with ours, by the righteousness of our God and [the] Savior Jesus Christ  (2 Peter 1:1, NWT read HERE)

May there be undeserved kindness and peace from God [the] Father and Christ Jesus our Savior. (Titus 1:4, NWT read HERE)

but exhibiting good fidelity to the full, so that they may adorn the teaching of our Savior, God, in all things. (Titus 2:10, NWT read HERE)  … here we see that Jehovah God is the Savior again.

while we wait for the happy hope and glorious manifestation of the great God and of [the] Savior of us, Christ Jesus (Titus 2:13, NWT read HERE)

4However, when the kindness and the love for man on the part of our Savior, God, was manifested,
5owing to no works in righteousness that we had performed, but according to his mercy he saved us through the bath that brought us to life and through the making of us new by holy spirit.
6This [spirit] he poured out richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior (Titus 3, NWT read HERE)

Hey…wait a minute!  Titus 3:4-6 reads that GOD OUR SAVIOR saved us by THE HOLY SPIRIT through JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR.  Hmmm…looks like God is Triune even in the New World Translation! 

Indeed Jehovah God is Savior and there is no other Savior besides Him! (Isaiah 43:11) And when Jehovah walked on Earth He took on the Name, Jesus (Isaiah 9:6 and Matthew 1:23)  This Jesus is God (John 8:24) and is Savior (John 4:42) and we are made new when God’s own Holy Spirit comes to live inside of us and make us new! (1 Corinthians 6:19, Ephesians 4:30, Titus 3:5, and other passages)   

Thanks New World Translation, for clearing this matter up !!

More Scriptures Showing

Jesus Christ IS God

*

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning GOD created the heaven and the earth.

Match this with
Colossians 1:15-19
CHRIST made “all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by (Christ), and for him”

*

Hosea 13:4
Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no God but me: for there is no SAVIOR beside Me

match this Scripture with
Titus 2:13
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ

or other New Testament Scriptures which show Jesus is the Savior and other Old Testament Scriptures where God says there IS NO OTHER Savior besides Himself

*

Zechariah 14: 3-4:
Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley…  the Lord  MY GOD  will come, and all the holy ones with him.
compare this with
Revelation 19: 11-15:
I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.  His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.  He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the WORD OF GOD.
The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”

Who is “the Word of God” shown in Revelation 19:14?
The Bible teaches that JESUS CHRIST   is  “the Word of God”  {John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”} and Zechariah 14 teaches us that “The Word of God”  Who is returning  to fight the nations, with all of His holy ones with Him, is   Lord AND GOD.

*

Isaiah 44:6
This is what the LORD says — Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty:  I AM THE FIRST AND I AM THE LAST; apart from Me there is NO GOD

wow …  apart from this First and Last, there is NOT OTHER GOD;  He alone is the LORD ALMIGHTY … now compare this with
Revelation 1:17-18
When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as though dead.  Then He placed His right hand on me and said:  Do not be afraid.  I AM THE FIRST AND THE LAST.  I am the Living One;  I WAS DEAD, and behold I AM ALIVE for ever and ever!

also
Revelation 2:
8
These are the words of Him Who is the FIRST and he LAST, Who DIED and CAME TO LIFE AGAIN.

and
Revelation 22:13
Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with Me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the FIRST AND THE LAST, the Beginning and the End.

Question:   WHO was dead and is now alive?  JESUS.   Who is coming back to earth again?  JESUS.

JESUS is therefore, ALMIGHTY GOD, the First and the Last, according to Isaiah 44:6!

Hebrews 1: 10, speaking of Jesus states:
“You, LORD, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth and the heavens are the works of Your hands”

and
Hebrews 3:4, speaking of the Father states:
“but the builder of all things is GOD”
and
Genesis 1:1 or course, tells us that:
“In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth”

but then
Genesis 1:26 also teaches us that God said:
“Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness…”

and so we are shown yet again, not only that Jesus IS God, but that there is also a TRINITY (namely: let US make man in OUR image)

*

Hebrews 1:8
“But of the Son, He (the Father) says, “Your throne, O GOD, is forever and ever”
clearly calling Jesus, the Son, GOD.

Please be honest with these Scriptures,  JWs!
Repent and worship Jesus Christ as God, before it is too late.

Scriptures Showing the

TRINITY

.

The below three Scriptures show that all THREE Persons of the God-head (the Trinity) have a role to play in a human becoming Born Again.

.

1 — 1 John 3:9
No one who is born of GOD will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of GOD

2 — 1 John 2:28 & 29
And now, dear children, continue in HIM, so that when HE appears {that is JESUS} we may be confident and unashamed before HIM at HIS coming. If you know that HE is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of HIM / CHRIST
{context of these Scriptures is CHRIST}

3 — John 3:8
So it is with everyone born of the SPIRIT

.

The below Scriptures show that all Three Persons of the God-head (the Trinity) had a role to play in Jesus Christ being raised from the dead.

.

1 — Acts 2:24
But GOD RAISED HIM from the dead

2 — Acts 10:40
but GOD RAISED HIM from the dead on the third day and caused Him to be seen

.

.

Here is yet another example of all Three Persons of the God-head (all Three Persons of the Trinity) having a part in the life of the Born Again Believer.

God the Father gives us life, as much as Jesus Christ does, as much as the Holy Spirit does.

.

Romans 4:17
…He is our father in the sight of God, in who he believe – the GOD WHO GIVES LIFE to the dead and calls things that are not …

1 Timothy 6:13
In the sight of GOD, WHO GIVES LIFE to everything

John 5:21
For just as the FATHER raises the dead and GIVES THEM LIFE, even so the SON GIVES LIFE TO WHOM HE IS PLEASED to give it

John 6:63
The SPIRIT GIVES LIFE; the flesh counts for nothing

2 Corinthians 3:6
…for the letter kills, but the SPIRIT GIVES LIFE

.

2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the LORD IS THE SPIRIT, and where the SPIRIT OF THE LORD is, there is freedom

This shows us that God, the Lord, IS the Spirit …. they are One.

What Do The Scriptures Teach About The

DIVINITY OF JESUS?

.

John 20:28
Thomas said to Him {Jesus}, “My Lord and MY GOD”

Matthew 1:23
The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call Him IMMANUEL – which means, “GOD WITH US”

Isaiah 9:6
For to us a Child is born , to us a Son is given and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, Prince of Peace …

Hebrews 1:5
… when God brings his firstborn into the world, He says, let all God’s angels WORSHIP HIM … But about the Son He says, Your throne, O GOD, will last for ever and ever

Exodus 34:14
DO NOT WORSHIP ANY OTHER GOD, for the Lord, Whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God

{Remember, the Old Testament teaches that WORSHIP is only to be given to the One True GOD — Deut 6:4, 32:39, Ex 23:24, 2 Kings 17:35, etc — Why would GOD THE FATHER go against His commands, and command and/or allow WORSHIP FOR THE SON, as shown in Hebrews 1:5, except that the Son be GOD IN THE FLESH, even as Matthew 1:23 and Isaiah 9:6 teach.}

What Do the Scriptures Teach About

The Holy Spirit?

.

The HOLY SPIRIT Speaks as a Person ….He is not just a power source{as Jehovah’s Witnesses teach}, as shown in the Scriptures below:

.

Hebrews 3:7
So, as the HOLY SPIRIT SAYS … where your fathers tested and tried ME and for forty years saw what I did

Hebrew 10:15
The HOLY SPIRIT also TESTIFIES to us about this. First HE SAYS …

Acts 21:11
The HOLY SPIRIT SAYS, ‘In this way ….

1 Timothy 4:1
The SPIRIT CLEARLY SAYS that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.

Revelation 2:7, 2:11, 2:17, 2:29, Revelation 3:6, 3:13, 3:22
He who has an ear, let him hear what the SPIRIT SAYS to the churches

Revelation 14:13
“Yes,”, SAYS THE SPIRIT, “they will rest from their labor …”

Revelation 22:17
The SPIRIT and the bride SAY, “Come!”

.
