The official spokesman of the Living Church of God and official authority on end times prophecy had an interesting quote on his page today about his latest endeavor, a video of his book Fatima Shock. Prophet Thiel wrote his book to claim that Catholicism is ruled by demons and evil spirits. Those demons are manifesting themselves in all kinds of visions in the Catholic church to take away from the true prophets of the Living Church of God. When the two witnesses emerge from the LCG and start performing miracles, they will be looked upon as false prophets because people will assume that the Catholic Church has the gift of prophecy.
For those that think Thiel is frowned upon by Meredith and crew for his predictions you are sadly deceiving yourselves. Meredith uses Thiel's works to formulate his messages. That is part of the reason as official spokesman of the Living Church of God that Thiel can say the things he does and get away with it. Thiel can say the things that Meredith cannot without causing direct issues for LCG. Meredith and LCG can disavow anything Thiel says at anytime as it is convenient. However, Meredith uses Thiel at appropriate times to supplement his teachings.
Prophet Thiel writes:
I wrote Fatima Shock! to warn people that apparitions that most people will think are Mary will likely be part of the signs and lying wonders that the Bible warns will deceive the world. Notice what Dr. Roderick C. Meredith of the Living Church of God warned about in his latest semi-annual letter:
All kinds of “miracles,” visions of the Virgin Mary and other strange sights and events will begin to take place—startling many…(Meredith RC. Semi-annual TW subscriber letter, May 18, 2012)Although most non-Catholics do not think that Fatima can affect them, if they live long enough this century, they will find that this is not the case. Fatima is a much bigger deal than people realize and seems to tie into a variety of prophecies throughout the Bible (e.g. Isaiah 47, Matthew 24, 2 Thessalonians 2, Revelation 17). How apparitions are likely to affect the world at the end seems to be a missing dimension in understanding prophecy by most who profess Christ. Although Dr. Meredith has warned about the sorcery of “Lady of the Kingdoms” in Isaiah 47 affecting end times in at least one booklet, relatively few in the Church of God truly understand how important it is to better know the truth about that “Lady.” The dangers, and even more details, are covered in my book Fatima Shock! What the Vatican Does Not Want You to Know About Fatima, Dogmas of Mary, and Future Apparitions.
Prophet Thiel is consumed with exposing what he sees as corruption and false teaching in the Catholic church. My question is why he never bothers to focus upon the false teachings and corporation in Armstrongism starting with his own group, the Living Church of God? I will not hold my breathe on that one.
