Charles Taze Russell -- JW Founder in Hell

Rodolfo Acevedo Hernandez is an evangelist preacher from the Dominican Republic, who fasted and prayed for eight days, because he didn’t want to remain in the spiritual condition he was in. During that time, the Lord gave him a revelation of heaven and hell. In that revelation, the Lord showed him a certain man (pictured left) in torment in hell. In his Testimony of Heaven and Hell and the Condition of Today’s Church, (see this video), Rodolfo said:

“We continued walking and the Lord showed me a white man whose hands were stretched out. And the surprising thing about this man is that he had a very fine sword inside his tongue, and this sword crossed through his head and was coming out of his body. His feet were grabbed by chains, and his back was full of blades set in different positions in a way that no matter how he moved he would be cut. When I saw this man in this condition, I told Jesus, ‘Lord, please help him. Do something, Lord Jesus. Look at the horrendous pain that this man is going through.’ 

The Lord asked me if I know who this man is. ‘No, Lord,’ I said. I saw how the knives cut through his skin and then through the bones and how they came out of his body. The man only screamed in agony. The Lord told me, ‘Judgment against this man has been established. Now I am going to tell you the identity of this man. Because of that revelation,’ the Lord said, ‘you will have to run from city to city, because this will cause you a great persecution. But I will be with you.’ He went on to say, ‘Rodolfo, this man is Charles T. Russell.’ I said, ‘Lord, who is he?’ The Lord said, ‘That this man was the founder of the Jehovah Witnesses.’ I pleaded, ‘Lord, please help him.’ And the Lord said, ‘No, Rodolfo.’ 

And as the Lord moved his hands, immediately I saw that many souls were falling into hell in every way possible. They were falling headfirst, feet first, stomach first, etc. 

‘Rodolfo, for that cursed man all these souls are entering into hell. This man taught that God was only a God of love. The Bible says that God is a consuming fire. This man Charles Russell took the word “hell” from the Bible, and he took out all the words Sheol and Abaddon. Also he denied the deity of Jesus Christ, and also denied the deity of the Holy Spirit, and he put only the word Jehovah in the Bible. He took out Jesus and the Holy Spirit. For this cursed man, all these souls are falling into hell’ (Revelation 22: 18-19). Then the Lord said, ‘I curse that man.’ 

Please, Jehovah Witness that is listening to me at this moment. I don't want to offend you. Get out of that sect, and come to Jesus quickly. I don't hate you, and I don't hate your religion either, but you are in a farce. Come to Jesus. He is waiting for you with open hands. Charles Russell is in hell, because he taught lies. Don't follow his lies. 

When we left this place, these prison doors closed and caught fire, and this man Charles Taze Russell cried and screamed and cursed Jesus repeatedly, because Jesus said, ‘The  judgment has been set for this man.'"



Closing Words
I would like to just add that although the Jehovah's Witness leadership honors Charles Taze Russell, they disown him as their founder. However, the historical facts prove that he was indeed the founder of what is now known as the Bible Student movement, and the founder of Zion's Watchtower Tract Society, which was later renamed the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, from which the Jehovah's Witnesses came forth, But perhaps the reason they won't admit that he is the founder of their religion is that he is such an embarrassment to them, since he has been proven in so many ways to have been a fraud and a false prophet. I believe that the bad fruit that is evidenced in this religious group is a direct result of the bad character of its founder, based on the principle of sowing and reaping.  

Space does not permit us to go into all of the bad fruit in his life. You can read about this all over the internet. Wikipedia has an article on him that you can read, if you are interested. But his group was strongly influenced by the writings of two Millerite Adventist ministers, which explains why his false teachings have so much in common with the false teachings of Ellen G. White's Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church that she founded, since she also had Millerite roots like Russell. 

Russell perjured himself in a court of law, by lying under oath several times and later retracting his claims on each of the lies upon cross examination. For example, he falsely claimed to have studied the original Greek language that the New Testament Bible was written in. but when he was later asked to identify some letters of the Greek alphabet, he could not do so, and had to admit he hadn't studied Greek. 

He was accused by a certain group of people of being a dictatorial leader, as well as a shrewd businessman who appeared eager to collect funds from the selling of books. His early Watchtower publications prominently displayed on the upper left-hand corner the cross and crown symbol of the Knights Templar, which is actually a Masonic symbol. The same symbol can be found at the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

He also made numerous false date predictions regarding various end time events that never came to pass. For example, he taught that Christ had already returned invisibly in 1874, and that 1914 would mark the end of a harvest period and usher in Armageddon. 

I realize that none of this would matter to most Jehovah's Witnesses, but I believe it should give most thinking people cause for pause and reconsideration before listening to Jehovah's Witnesses or having anything to do with that cult. 

Jesus said that we would know false prophets by their fruit, and that is certainly the case with Russell. The Lord said:

"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. (Mat 7:15-20)

In addition to the moral issues in Russell's life, his teachings were another type of bad fruit by which you can recognize that he was a false teacher. I have covered several of his false teachings in my related article called Are Jehovah's Witnesses a Cult? In it I explain his denial of the true doctrine of the Holy Trinity, the deity of Christ, hell, the bodily resurrection of Christ from the dead, and the general bodily resurrection of all the dead, as well as his denial of the power of the Holy Spirit. I invite you to read that article to learn more about his many false teachings, so that you will hopefully avoid this cult and help others do so as well.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe. 

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
