Geoff Neilson, the HWA worshiper and false prophet from South Africa shows once again on why Armstrongism is not based in reality. The COG's wonder why the world looks at them all as kooky. Is it any wonder when people like Geoff, Pack, Weinland, Flurry, and others say some of the most incredibly stupid things!
Neilson thinks that Herbert W. and Garner Ted will both be resurrected again to be the end time two witnesses.
This will be Herbert Armstrong's second resurrection. Remember when he supposedly died in Tuscon and was miraculously brought back to life because the church needed to be put "back on track?" That resurrection had been intended to be a magnificent sign to the world to show God's hand at work in the Worldwide Church of God. However, Satan had other plans. He was apparently so pissed at the resurrection of HWA that he caused Elvis to die at the same time. That was the news story of the day, Herbert was not. Apparently Satan had more power than God, or God was too busy else where to keep HWA in the forefront of the news.
God has already resuscitated Mr Armstrong from death once before. The medically very experienced Dr Roy McCarthy, who knew him well, testified that there was no clinical record of any other 85-year-old man experiencing heart failure, and recovering to the extent Mr Armstrong did. It was a miracle. And one that it seems Satan tried to cover up:
That event was overshadowed by another unprecedented event on the same day: the enormous media coverage on August 16, 1977, reporting the death of the music idol Elvis Presley.
The subsequent rumors that Elvis (the King) hadnt died, or had been brought back to life, were an eerily similar imitation of Mr Armstrongs genuinely Royal lineage, of his resuscitation then, and perhaps again in the future.
Was this Elvis mania, Satans attempt to hide the more important event of the dayMr Armstrongs restored lifebecause the Devil was afraid the Two Witnesses were about to rise?
At the time Dr Herman L. Hoeh, the chief historian in the Philadelphia Era, linked Mr Armstrongs recovery from heart failure to the prophecy in Revelation 10:11, predicting Mr Armstrong would preach again to many nations and kings. Which he did.
