To sum up, their denial of the Hypostatic Nature of the Holy Spirit is a part of their denial of the Three Persons. Accordingly they deny the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. Jehovah's Witnesses also believe that [[Jesus Christ]] is the [[Archangel]] Michael. They say that Jesus Christ Himself does not have an immortal soul, but gained immortality as a reward for His success in the test and for His faithfulness to the Father until death.
Jehovah's Witnesses have their own [http://www.watchtower.org/bible/index.htm false translation] of the [[Bible]]. They believe in numerous resurrections, each one being for a particular group of people, and in an eternal earthly paradise as a literal fulfilment of Isaiah 65:21: "''They shall build houses and inhabit them; They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit''" (earthly resurrection for the good, with the exception of 144,000 who would go to "Heaven").  They do not believe in the immortality of the soul (sharing this belief as well as that of the earthly paradise with [[Seventh Day Adventism|Seventh Day Adventists]]). Instead, they believe in the annihilation of the wicked (including, according to their beliefs, the annihilation of both Satan and Adam, the first man), i.e., they do not believe in the eternal punishment of sinners. They also do not believe in the intercession of the departed saints.
