Who are Yhwh's Witnesses? A familiar scripture tells us. These are the very same verses which "Jehovah's Witnesses" use to justify taking that label. Please re-examine those verses now, in the hope that as was the case with me, your misconception can be guided into accurate knowledge by means of the Bible.

:
10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
    “and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am he.
Before me no god was formed,
    nor will there be one after me.
11 I, even I, am the Lord,
    and apart from me there is no savior.
12 I have revealed and saved and proclaimed
    I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God.
21 the people formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.
22 “Yet you have not called on me, Jacob,
    you have not wearied yourselves for me, Israel.
28 So I disgraced the dignitaries of your temple;
    I consigned Jacob to destruction
    and Israel to scorn."

I have emphasized some of the points Yhwh's words make, because of their relevance to the misconception mentioned earlier.
The Witnesses referred to in this scripture, received that position, not from men, but from God.
    Hello guest!
 clearly states, that Yhwh's genuine witnesses, are those "chosen" by Him (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
;
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). These can not be those chosen and designated by mere men (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
;
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
). This misconception occurred based upon the assumption that Yhwh had already judged and appointed the "faithful and discreet slave" over all his belongings (in 1919 -though this doctrine was recently abolished); and that God installed not only those 144,000 anointed slaves over Christ's total inheritance (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
;
    Hello guest!
) (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
), but also all in association with them, as His "witnesses".
This is not at all what these verses in 
    Hello guest!
 say, nor what any of the end-time prophecies, indicate.
The symbolic last two prophets are called Yhwh's "witnesses" (
    Hello guest!
).
According to prophecy, every one of them are "killed" (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
).

The Bible makes clear who God's "chosen" ones are [
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
 (
    Hello guest!
); 
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
).


It also makes clear what their assignment is (

    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). The assignment of the Priesthood is not to be rendered in the "Temple" by any other (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). Only those chosen to be priests may render "acceptable service" (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
) in the Temple arrangement (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
;
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
).
Any other arrangement is considered an abomination by God (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
), a "disgusting thing standing in the holy place" (
    Hello guest!
), "standing where it ought not" to be (
    Hello guest!
)...."trampling" the priesthood of "holy ones"
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
).

The next point made at 
    Hello guest!
, is that these ones whom God chooses, are given by God Himself....divine knowledge, understanding, and faith in and of the True God (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). These ones are then said to realize, that besides this True God, there is NO other identity to be served or worshipped (
    Hello guest!
).
    Hello guest!
 adds the trait, that these chosen ones understand, that besides Yhwh and His expressed arrangement, there is no other means nor path of salvation (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
).
    Hello guest!
, Yhwh emphasized once again, that he himself is the only source of revelation, light, and divine proclamation among these chosen ones (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). God's spirit is the source of knowledge to those chosen by Him (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
)....not an organization which falsely claims spirit direction (
    Hello guest!
;
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
; (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
)-- 
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). 


God spirit directs and dwells within His Temple priesthood (

    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
); Not with spiritual Gentiles who hijack this position, due to the lying spirit from a false prophet (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
;
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
).
 

Yhwh also finds it necessary to clarify and repeat, that there is no other object of worship and service among God's witnesses (

    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
). 
At 
    Hello guest!
, God concludes by saying that these personal students of His, must teach what they know (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
;
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
) ....specifically, that only Yhwh is the God deserving service, fear, and worship (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
;
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
), not an organizational "mountain" offering salvation (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
).
This exclusive devotion indicates that only God is to be personally worshipped, served and glorified. This teaching would characterize God's genuine "witnesses"....but not the climate of God's people in the time of the end (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!

    Hello guest!

    Hello guest!

    Hello guest!

    Hello guest!
) (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
)
 

    Hello guest!
 adds more detail about these genuine witnesses. It highlights the facts that this new creation is being "formed" by God over time, into a group with a purpose (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). That singular purpose is to "declare" God's "praise" (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). This would exclude working to accrue praise for any other identity (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
), nor pointing to its worldly power for salvation or divine knowledge. This singular purpose would certainly NOT include procuring praise for oneself (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
). For God does not share His glory and praise with any other identity. Yhwh's genuine and chosen witnesses, already know this (
    Hello guest!
).

Do we have any scriptural teachings in the Greek scriptures to indicate who these chosen witnesses are (since Isaiah is written to those in the Covenant that has already ended)? Yes...those chosen to be witnesses of Yhwh...those who continue to fulfill
    Hello guest!
 are identified under the New Covenant Nation (
    Hello guest!
,
    Hello guest!
). The people God forms for himself to declare his praise, based upon the knowledge they have received directly from His spirit; are clearly identified for any who wish to be followers of Christ (
    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
).


According to Yhwh..."Yhwh's Witnesses" are the anointed "chosen" ones, as long as they are:
worshiping God alone,
are taught by means of God's spirit and Word exclusively (

    Hello guest!
    Hello guest!
),
and like Jesus, they must preach and teach others to have an exclusive devotion and worship to God alone

      Soyons reconnaissant devant toutes ses oeuvres
       
      Le Dieu des dieux, Jéhovah, parle ;
      il convoque la terre
      depuis le soleil levant jusqu’au soleil couchant.
      De Sion, la perfection de la beauté, Dieu rayonne.
      Notre Dieu viendra et ne pourra pas garder le silence.
      Il y a un feu dévorant devant lui,
      et une violente tempête fait rage autour de lui.
      Il convoque les cieux et la terre
      pour juger son peuple :
       « Rassemblez auprès de moi mes fidèles,
      ceux qui concluent une alliance avec moi par un sacrifice. »
      Les cieux proclament sa justice,
      car Dieu lui-même est Juge. (Sèla.)
       « Écoute, ô mon peuple, je vais parler ;
      ô Israël, je vais témoigner contre toi.
      Je suis Dieu, ton Dieu.
      Ce n’est pas pour tes sacrifices que je te réprimande,
      ni pour tes holocaustes, qui sont constamment devant moi.
      Je n’ai pas besoin de prendre un taureau de ta maison
      ni des boucs de tes enclos.
      Car tous les animaux sauvages de la forêt m’appartiennent,
      même les bêtes sur mille montagnes.
      Je connais tous les oiseaux des montagnes;
      les innombrables animaux des champs sont à moi.
      Si j’avais faim, je ne te le dirais pas,
      car le sol productif m’appartient, avec tout ce qui s’y trouve.
      Vais-je manger la viande des taureaux
      et boire le sang des boucs?
      Offre en sacrifice à Dieu ta reconnaissance
      et acquitte-toi des vœux que tu as faits au Très-Haut;
      appelle-moi en temps de détresse.
      Je te secourrai, et tu me glorifieras. »
      Mais Dieu dira au méchant :
      « De quel droit récites-tu mes prescriptions
      ou parles-tu de mon alliance?
      Car tu détestes la discipline,
      et sans cesse tu tournes le dos à mes paroles.
      Quand tu vois un voleur, tu l’approuves,
      et tu fréquentes les personnes adultères.
      Avec ta bouche, tu répands le mal,
      et tu attaches la tromperie à ta langue.
      Tu t’assieds et tu parles contre ton frère;
      tu révèles les défauts du fils de ta propre mère.
      Quand tu faisais ces choses, je gardais le silence,
      alors tu t’es dit que j’étais comme toi.
      Mais, à présent, je vais te réprimander
      et exposer ce que j’ai contre toi.
      Réfléchissez à ceci, s’il vous plaît, vous qui oubliez Dieu,
      sinon je vous déchirerai et il n’y aura personne pour vous secourir.
      Celui qui offre en sacrifice sa reconnaissance me glorifie ;
      et à celui qui est déterminé à bien agir
      je ferai voir le salut de Dieu. »

      Dieu aime les prières et la sincérité de ses serviteurs humbles
       
      Dieu aime la bonté de coeur envers autrui et non aux sacrifices et holocaustes d'animaux sauvages et domistiques.
      Dans ton amour fidèle, accorde-moi ta faveur, ô Dieu.
      Dans ta grande miséricorde, efface mes transgressions.
      Lave-moi complètement de ma faute
      et purifie-moi de mon péché.
      Car je suis bien conscient de mes transgressions,
      et mon péché est constamment devant moi.
      C’est contre toi que j'ai failli, oui j'ai fait le mal
      devant tes yeux.
      Ainsi, tu es juste quand tu parles,
      tu es droit quand tu juges.
      Vois ! Je suis né coupable
      et, depuis l’instant où ma mère m’a conçu, je suis pécheur.
      Vois ! Tu prends plaisir à la vérité dans le fond du cœur;
      enseigne-moi la vraie sagesse, au plus profond de moi.
      Purifie-moi de mon péché avec l’hysope, pour que je sois pur;
      lave-moi, pour que je sois plus blanc que la neige.
      Fais-moi entendre le son de l’allégresse et de la joie,
      pour que les os que tu as broyés se réjouissent.
      Détourne ton visage de mes péchés
      et efface toutes mes fautes.
      Crée en moi un cœur pur, ô Dieu,
      et mets en moi un esprit nouveau, ferme.
      Ne me chasse pas de ta présence ;
      ne m’enlève pas ton esprit saint.
      Redonne-moi la joie d’être sauvé par toi;
      éveille en moi la volonté de t’obéir.
      Je veux enseigner tes chemins aux transgresseurs,
      pour que les pécheurs reviennent à toi.
      Libère-moi de la culpabilité de meurtre, ô Dieu, mon Dieu sauveur,
      pour que ma langue puisse proclamer joyeusement ta justice.
      Ô Jéhovah, ouvre mes lèvres
      pour que ma bouche proclame ta louange.
      Car tu ne veux pas de sacrifices — autrement, j’en donnerais ;
      tu ne prends pas plaisir aux holocaustes.
      Le sacrifice qui plaît à Dieu, c’est un esprit brisé ;
      un cœur brisé et broyé, ô Dieu, tu ne le rejetteras pas.
      Dans ta bienveillance, agis pour le bien de Sion ;
      bâtis les murailles de Jérusalem.
      Alors tu prendras plaisir aux sacrifices de justice,
      aux holocaustes et aux offrandes totales ;
      alors on offrira des taureaux sur ton autel.
