Convicted felon, Ron Weinland, the failed false prophet trained by Herbert Armstrong, has sent two love notes to his few remaining followers today. In the first he has let them know that he is under house arrest and has to wear an ankle bracelet to monitor all of his movements. He is restricted to his region of Kentucky and cannot venture over to Cincinnati where he loved to go and make prophetic announcements. Now those prophetic announcements have to come from his house. One of Weinerdudes ministers sent this stupid comment to him: "As one sr. elder just sent me an email upon hearing about this, he stated: “Adding an ankle bracelet to sackcloth and ashes is a way to add to your fashion statement.” Read his entire note on Mike's blog. Oh the martyrdom!
Then the convicted felon and false prophet penned another letter about this "day of the Lord" we are now supposedly in, and what it means for true believers. He goes into detail about how Jesus will return on Pentecost 2013 since this entire year from Pentecost 2012 to 2013 is "the Day of the Lord."
Yes, the “Day of the Lord” is a year in actual length. May 27, 2012, was the beginning of the “Day of the Lord” when Jesus Christ will return on the final day of Pentecost 2013.
Then he says something that may be a veiled threat against the United States government for daring to convict him of stealing money. Is he expecting God to dish out wrath and vengeance upon the United States for persecuting him, his wife and his kids? It should be noted that the government made no attempt to stop his preaching. What they stopped was his illegal use of church funds for his own personal use and for taking care of his kids.
The failed prophet continues on with his assertion that this "day of the Lord" will be a time that the scattered Armstrongites who are "true believers" will all be brought together (63,000 of them) under Weinerdudes glorious reign.Zion is about God’s Family. It is about God’s Church. For 6,000 years, God’s people have been rejected, ridiculed, and persecuted by the world. That time has now come to an end! God has begun to intervene and He will now execute His judgment upon an unbelieving world. That judgment begins with the Church and will continue on with His judgment upon the whole world.Although I mentioned in a recent sermon about other translations of this verse in Isaiah 34:8, it would be good to repeat some of those here. “For the Lord has a day of vengeance, a year of recompense, for the cause of Zion” (Amplified Bible). “This is the time when the Lord will rescue Zion and take vengeance on her enemies” (Good News Translation). “For the Lord has a day of vengeance, a year of retribution, to uphold Zion’s cause” (NIV). “The Lord will have a day of vengeance, a year of revenge in defense of Zion” (God’s Word Translation).
The “Day of the Lord” is described in this verse as a matter that focuses on the “cause” of God’s own Church. The Church was scattered after the apostasy in December of 1994. It will now be at this time that God will step in to reverse the scattering and restore His Church once again. There was only a very small group whom God brought through the scattering. God preserved a tiny remnant who continued on as His Church, doing His work. This remnant of the Church of God, spiritual Zion, now finds itself in this time period when God will make His people “to stand” in the sight of others, for God will reveal that all the prophetic events about which they (those in the Church) have warned and taught are now to come to pass.
Then he wants all of you that have rotten attitudes to know that his god is going to change your bitterness so much so that you will come running back to Ron's true church.
Changing the attitude of mankind is what the Day of the Lord is all about, and that is what God is setting in motion to address and accomplish. God will work with the attitude of those in the Church that was scattered after the apostasy, and He will work to change the attitude, that exists toward Him, of this world. By an ever increasing degree, as we move forward through this period of time, God will make His people to “stand.” He will make His truth, His prophetic pronouncements, and His true Church to “stand” in the sight of this worldIn spite of this, Weinerdudes prophetic announcements continue to be set up on and mocked by bitter angry people out to destroy his good name and work. Damn the Internet for allowing that dissemination to go forth!
We are now nearly three weeks into the “Day of the Lord.” God’s Church stands at a historic moment in time. Beginning on December 14, 2008, God began a final end-time work through His two witnesses. As with all whom God has sent, these two have been met with great ridicule, hatred, and mockery.
In the age of this 21st Century, the ability to disseminate such hatred and ridicule has been multiplied a thousand-fold over past centuries. Technology enables printed media, radio, television, and the unbridled use of the Internet to malign God’s word for mankind and the servants who carry it. It is that spirit and attitude being expressed against God that He is going to make bow down low before Him.In this end-time, God has magnified and made manifest the kind of disdain, hatred, and haughtiness that mankind has displayed against Him for the past 6,000 years. The Eternal has done so in order to magnify the very reason why He is going to fulfill His word concerning this “day” we have entered. It is God’s “day” to vindicate His name, His word, His Church—all who serve Him.
For several years now Ron has been hurling curses at all those who mock him. He says that his mockers will die horrible painful deaths with cancer and other disease eating them from the inside out.
In light of his curses showed upon us all, he now says that we should all be prayed for. Why the change of heart Ronnie?
It would be good at this point to remember what was stated in the most recent sermon. We are to pray for those who have engaged in activities against us, who have participated in ridicule and shown disdain toward us. We are to be of a forgiving attitude and remember we were once in those shoes and God has forgiven us. The expression of “but by the grace of God, there go I” is one to embrace and remember. Spiritual Egypt is a powerful force in this world and the “good news” we proclaim is about deliverance from the bondage of Egypt—when all are freed and blessed to serve God as “one” together.Then he announces that he and his wife's job as the two witless witnesses is not over, ignoring the fact that he said on May 28th that it was over. Oh wait, now they are prophets and apostles. Ho hum....
Ronnie now realizes he needs to shift gears since he is going to prison. Ronnie wants you to know he no longer has to find fault with his detractors but is to love and pray for their prosperity. Yeah right.As it has already been made clear in sermons, the work of fulfilling a role as God’s two witnesses ended on May 26, once the prophesied 1260 days was complete. However, their witness continues on into the “Day of the Lord.” These two continue on as prophets and an apostle doing the work that God has given them to accomplish in this final period. That which they stood for during that 1260 days was contained in the book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness. They are the focus and representation of the message of that book.
All of us have suffered as we have entered this final era of the “Day of the Lord.” It has not been easy to shift gears and make a hard right turn in order to follow God into a new “day” that lasts from Pentecost to Pentecost. We have shared in this pain and suffering together, yet we are blessed to take the “high road” that lives the way of God toward all others. That is priceless and noble in the eyes of God. We do not have time to find fault with others, nor to be of a wrong spirit toward anyone who might be seen as the source of some of our pain, but instead we are to practice God’s way, which is one of mercy, genuine forgiveness, and love toward others.
Ron closes with this:
As I finish this post, I think of those I long to see freed from the captivity of spiritual Egypt. I think of the 63,000 who will soon be brought back into one Body. I think of those who are in my community—those who like us and those who do not, for once we are all brought into unity with God, then true peace and God’s love can be shared together in a new age that is almost here.
Translation: "As I finish this post, I am thinking of Bubba my new
As for the 63,000 COGgers soon to return to his fold, I can emphatically state that this will NEVER happen! This is just one more of Weinerdudes lies. That is one prophecy that will never come to pass.
