Ron Weinland: Day of God's Vengeance is April 4th Between 12:00 and 3:00 P.M.

Ron Weinland, Armstrongism's favorite convicted felon, continues to send out his letters from prison.  I can't figure out if he is trying to imitate Paul or Martin Luther King.

Today, the failed false prophet writes to his members who obviously are failures in all aspects of their life. He starts his letter off by admonishing his members.  No "thank-you's" for supporting him while still in prison, no "thank-you's" for supporting his second witness wife. Nothing like that.  He lays into the membership for being slackards

That post was given as an admonishment to God’s Church to remember the importance of being spiritually on guard and ready. It was also given to encourage a greater measure of soberness about the reality that horrific end-time events can truly happen at any moment. Capturing and holding onto such an awareness is not easily accomplished, but it is necessary.

Apparently Satan is on such a rampage against God's anointed felon that some members are starting to drift away and not send in their money.  Ron can't have that.  Laura still must maintain her spa treatments and shopping sprees.

Having such purpose of focus along with being constant in belief can only be accomplished with God’s spirit. This becomes all that much more urgent upon us when you add to this that there is an evil spirit world that is highly agitated and its objective is to fully distract you from having such a spiritual focus. Anything that can be used to turn your focus inward on self is now being intensified.

Satan has declared war and it rages all around us:

Their time is growing very short and they know it. You need to “see” this reality as a war in progress in the midst of a great battlefield. It must be treated in such a manner, as the greatest spiritual battle in which you will ever be engaged in life.

Satan is raging against them just as he did with Jesus Christ on the cross.  Since we are approaching Armstrongism Passover the convicted felon uses that to prepare his members for the Day of Vengeance that he says will strike the earth on April 4th, between 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. - give or take a few hours either direction.

We are rapidly approaching the observance of Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread. It is from this season that the final count to the Pentecost that ushers in the Passover as King of kings will occur. Let’s consider some of those verses relating to our Passover who first came as a Lamb and is soon coming as a Lion. God’s execution of judgment upon Israel and the world has much to do with their rejection of His Son.

This is the account of the death of the Son of God. “Now from the sixth hour (noon) there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour (3 pm). At about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?’ That is to say, ‘My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?’” (Mat. 27:45-46). “Jesus, when he had cried out again in a loud voice, yielded up the spirit. Then behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom, and the earth shook and rocks shattered” (Mat. 27:50-51).

From noon until 3 pm on that Passover day, Jesus Christ entered the final stage of his agonizing torture that was finally brought to a close after a soldier had pierced his side with a spear (Jn. 19:34) and out came water and blood, and then he died. Christ’s Father marked that period by darkness over all the land as His only Son was dying a cruel and hideously unjust death. The world has always been cruel to those whom God has sent.

Would it not be most just indeed for the Day of the Eternal, also called the Day of God’s Vengeance, to also include God’s response to the world following the “time” of His Son’s death?

In this Day of the Eternal, 3 pm will arrive on April 4th, however the accounts of Christ’s death gives a time that is about or near 3 pm. It could be a little while before or after that exact time. In all this, God’s Church continues to “watch” (physically and spiritually) with eager anticipation as we look to God to begin executing His righteous judgment upon the world so that the pride and evil in this world can be brought down and humility of spirit raised up.

Which time zone?

I need to know so I can thoroughly plan for this non event not to happen.

I can't imagine the desperate soul who would ever listen to anything this fraud says.

April 4???

unleaved bread is over on April 1....

what IS he talking about?

April 4? Rats.

That means I won't get to hunt wild turkeys this spring. My permit is good for 10-16. Or maybe if I pray real hard, I can persuade Weinland's god to put off the end for a couple of weeks.

As with most "nutcase Christian churches", Ron Weinland's seems to be all about Satan.

But heck, Satan's not even in jail yet!

"I can't figure out if he is trying to imitate Paul or Martin Luther King."

The person or persons who wrote under the name of Paul were not the real Paul and Martin Luther King pretended to be a minister but was a lying cheating plargiarist and had a host of other foul characteristics. Hard to say who was more evil.

Too bad Weinland is not serving his time in Arizona with Sheriff Arpaio.

Pink underwear, tough hard work road crews, prison stripes, and living in tents in the desert son. No girlie mags, no smoking, and crappie food.

Says the good sheriff..."Hell, if its good enough for our military boys in Afghanistan to live in tents in the desert , then it should be good enough for the criminals too".

After reading a bunch of this "church" of god literature, I'm so sick of hearing about the damned "end times," tribulations and other mumbo-jumbo that I wish it would just happen and put us all out of our misery. If it weren't for the fact that I have a relative in one of these groups, it would never have even come to my attention. That's how unimportant it is to relatively sane people. One of my friends had a bumper sticker that said "Come the Rapture, can I have your car?"

Which brings up the whole issue of pet care....

See? The man does not have sense enough to say that April 4th "appears" to be or "looks to be" God's day of vengeance. He doesn't leave himself and 'out' like HWA always did.

Even Jesus, after saying that the end of the world would come in their generation, qualifies it by saying that no man knows the day or hour...Oops, but he's already said "this generation" so it was too late to move the goal post.

Like Peter when he said "the end of all things is at hand" but later says that a thousand years is as a day from God's perspective. Oops, it's too late, Peter, you already said it was "at hand" - were you lying then or are you lying now? Huh?

Nope, you have to be smart like HWA and never come right out and set a date. You must trick people into thinking of a certain date. You can do this by printing a booklet with the title "1975 in Prophecy" and asking a lot of irrelevant and leading questions with no straight answers and let the reader come to the conclusion that you planned for them to conclude. That way, you can always say "I never said that" when the prophecy fails.

Well, April 15 would seem to be Weinland's personal day of nemesis. Tax day. Heh heh heh

Here's a clue for Matthew 24:34

"Verily I say unto you, This generation *genea*
[men of the same stock, a family, successive members of a genealogy]shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."

Anonymous said...

That makes no sense. Basically you're saying that Jesus said that the human race would not go extinct before all these things be fulfilled? You can't exactly have a "man of sin" if all the people are extinct, now can you. That's a silly reading of that verse.

The question is: What does the word "generation" mean? Some assumne it means about 40 years. Sometimes it simply means other time spans, or it can mean "contemporaries". It is one thing to say, "This is what the Bible says" and another to say "This is what it means." Perhaps we read too many assumptions into some passages. Another term used here is the "fig tree." Israel has never been symbolized by a fig tree. Jesus never mentions the reestablishment of Israel, but he does mention the Abomination of Desolation. Perhaps that is what Jesus is referring to with regards to the fig tree.

The bible says a lot of things. This is what it means: "Send in your shekels, denarii, anything you can spare!"
