Ron Weinland: Just A Few Short Weeks Till Christ Returns and WWIII Begins

What is the point of being a Christian if you are going to be constantly beat down as a dirty filthy sinner who is just inches away from becoming toast?  That's what so many in the COG's hear day in and day out.  God's people have been so dumb over the last 70 some years that they still do not get it.

Since Ron Weinland has been sitting in jail for his grievous sins, it seems to be his duty to brow beat his members into submission with fear and trembling.  They are dirty sinners.  They sin so much that Jesus Christ has delayed his coming again and again.  They are so filled with sin  that they ahve to fast more than any other group out there.  They will never be good enough in the sight of their god to amount to anything but the worms that they are.

Oh wait!  Where have we heard all of that before??????????

Ron has penned another letter from the Birmingham jail to his followers.  If Ron thinks his letters from prison will reach the status of Paul's prison letters or MLK's, he has another thing coming.

Ron writes:

As I begin writing this post on the Sabbath, I am nearing the end of a Church-wide fast. We have focused on our individual need to repent of sin, and we have also taken the next step of seeking to be shown more sin within ourselves    that we do not readily see. Our desire as God’s people is to get rid of all leaven and to become more fully humbled in order to grow in greater unity and oneness with God’s perfect way   with God. We understand that growing in unity is a life long process of which we must continually embrace and submit to.

Our way of life includes a continual process that enables us to grow spiritually closer to God by His revealing sin to us and our choosing to continually repent as He reveals it. Our evangelist in Australia, Wayne, gave a sermon last Sabbath, entitled, “A Way of Life.” It would be good to quote part of what was addressed in that sermon, as it speaks of the importance of seeking out God’s favor (especially as we did in fasting) to see sin of which we are blind.

This is the quote from that sermon: “If we don’t see sin or spiritual faults, how can we choose to change? So how can we choose to repent if we don’t see it? If we think we’re right and God doesn’t reveal sin to us, we’ll just continue on with that sin for the rest of our life. God must correct man’s thinking to bring him to Elohim.”

Although we always use Isaiah 58 as our guide in fasting, as each of us seeks repentance and greater harmony and oneness in spirit with God, this fast has also had another important focus. It is not only that we desire to have God and Jesus Christ dwelling more fully within us in order to stand stronger against an evil spirit world, it has also been for the purpose of seeking God that He would remove more and more of the power of Satan and the demonic world to the day that they are spiritually bound for 1,000 years. The removal of Satan and the demons will help fulfill, in a most powerful way, the result for mankind that is pictured spiritually in Isaiah 58.

It's exhausting just reading it.  I can't imagine how exhausted his members are constantly having to do something to appease their angry pissed off god. 

Ron is preparing his members for the return of the thing he calls "christ " on May 19th this year.  Of course, Jesus is NOT returning May 19th any more than he will return next year on Pentecost.  When Ron's prophecy proves to be another failure it will quickly become evident that his god is still pissed and delays his coming because his members are still sinners.

We are now just a few weeks away from Pentecost and of our hope in the return of Jesus as the ruling Messiah   the Christ. There is much to be fulfilled and a very short time for it to happen. For “what is” now, as always, we press forward and battle against that which fights against God. In the present truth, we are focused on the fulfillment of Pentecost on its grandest scale yet.

In Ron's little cult there has been a major world war going on that has been leaving carnage in its wake.  That carnage is members leaving his group because of Ron's stupidity.

Because has been such an enormous failure with prophecy he has to keep adding pieces to his puzzle.  Ron's puzzle is now so misshapen a person will never be able to see the picture he is trying to get across.

In the last post, a spiritual world war was addressed that revealed our need for this Church-wide fast. With the added important focus we had for this fast concerning an evil spirit world, there is more clarification that God has now given regarding our past and current understanding of the Trumpets of Revelation. This reminds me of a recent post where it covered that the ongoing revelations of God to His Church is likened to a puzzle where pieces are continually being added that clarify and more fully picture for us what God is working out. As with any puzzle, sometimes we find ourselves fitting a piece (or pieces) in the wrong place when God reveals truth to us and He does not reveal everything of that truth in some specific aspects. It is a process of ever moving closer to God in truth as we follow the “present truth” He has revealed to that moment in time. This process is also used by God to test and mold His people. It is like the important example of Herbert W. Armstrong’s life where God revealed to him the truth of the holy days, including Pentecost, but it was nearly 40 years later before God revealed the correct time to observe it.

Ron still is trying to justify naming himself and his buffoonish wife as the "two witnesses".  If she is such a powerful instrument of his god why hasn't she said or done anything worthwhile or godly in the last  several years?  The only thing she seems able to do is use the Church credit card for personal use.

This example of fitting some pieces in the wrong place as God is revealing truth, has been especially true over the past few years where timing has been a factor. This was true about when the job of the two witnesses began. Who they were was true, but He then revealed that the timing for their job was to begin later. Though we knew the countdown for Christ’s return had begun, we did not know God’s timing would alter that count until He revealed Christ would return on a Pentecost and not on Trumpets. As we came to Pentecost 2012, we had to address timing again as we entered the “Day of the Eternal.” Once again, the picture of what God was doing became clearer as some pieces of the puzzle were simply not yet fitted to the puzzle or had been placed in the wrong area. Such things are fully in God’s control as to how much truth He gives and when he chooses to give it.
Ron is going to be in for another surprise on May 19 when his silly god hands him another puzzle piece.  The brethren will not have been ready, there is sin in the camp of Israel, there is a more important work yet to do, god is waiting till I get out of prison before  he acts.....
For the sake of this world and for the sake of God’s people who have been fighting a long and draining battle, we are prayerfully at a time now where no more important pieces are out of place. Yet again, this process of how God reveals truth does show much about the means by which God has led His Church and through which God has tested and refined (by fire) us. Regardless of what is before us, we do move forward and never give up the fight.

Ron goes on to write about the 7 trumpets sounding as hell is unleashed upon  the earth.  Ron, in an effort to cover his ass, says he doe snot know when the trumpets will sound, if they haven't already.  He is sure about one thing though, WWIII is just moments away with a nuclear blast.

Having said all this, we have been waiting, with the limited knowledge we have for the effects of the Second Trumpet to be made manifest so we might more clearly see where we are in timing and in the order of events. But God is letting us know that simple physical observation does not reveal such matters. This is akin to some limited knowledge God has given concerning the description of the Sixth Trumpet. This trumpet involves a massive nuclear exchange that isn’t made manifest until we are near the very end. It is because of this exchange (Armageddon) that God must quickly intervene with the events described in the Seventh Trumpet to stop this war. However, the events of the Sixth Trumpet are set in motion “an hour, a day, a month, and a year” (Rev. 9:15) in advance of their occurrence. God is now revealing to the Church that the Fifth Trumpet is the real prelude to World War III.

Ron seems to think that Germany will soon be declaring war.  Who else should we have expected?  This war though may not be a physical war but a war of government. Germany will wreck economic destruction upon the world, particularly the United States.  The  invading German hoards are nothing to the demonic war that is being fought right now.  The demonic work is waging a huge battle with Jesus Christ right  now in heaven.

In the last few posts, God has been leading us to this post. Our Father has shown that we have not fully grasped the use of the term “Assyria” in prophecy. In this end-time, that term is not specifically about Germany any more than the term “Egypt” is about that actual country. Throughout the time during Philadelphia and Laodicea, it was believed that the captivity of Israel would be by Germany (Assyria), instead of understanding that it is about a captivity of government that has engulfed the scattered nations of Israel. It is with the physical interpretation of this that this piece of the puzzle seemed to fit into the Fifth Trumpet. Although it is through the leadership of Germany that the Euro and European Union brings to light the kind of captivity that has taken Israel, the Fifth Trumpet is actually about God’s Church, both the remnant and that which was scattered. Germany’s involvement is about events that occur throughout the fulfillment of the First Trumpet as a result of the resurrection of the old Roman Empire.

The greater meaning of the Fifth Trumpet is about a spirit war in this time we are in now. It is about power that is unleashed by a demonic world and yet there are specific restrictions upon that spirit world that God controls. Recently, the Church was given a four-part sermon from our senior evangelist, Johnny, on the subject of Christ’s final journey to Passover day. In that sermon, he referred to scriptures that revealed there was a great demonic war being waged against Christ at that time. God allowed this for a great purpose, but in the midst of it all, He was always in control of what could and could not happen.
That great battle in heaven between Satan and Jesus Christ has spilled over into Ron's cult.  His members are being sorely tested.  Many have failed the test.  Ron's numbers continue to shrink as does the money.

God’s Church has been experiencing some of the most massive attacks ever from a demonic spirit world over the past few months. God has allowed this as a testimony to His remnant Church that has been growing in spiritual strength and has been fighting off such perverse abuse from that spirit world. As the last post indicated, there is a night and day difference in the condition of God’s Church today compared to the time of the apostasy when these beings easily defeated large numbers at that time. Yet during the past few months, this spirit army has not been able to defeat God’s people, as God is more fully dwelling in His people at this time. This is an awesome witness of the spiritual Body of Christ today just as it was such an awesome witness Jesus Christ gave in his life toward the end of it, as he stood firm against such power with dignity, honor, and grace as the Passover of mankind. These are things an evil spirit world cannot comprehend and neither do people who are guided by selfish human nature. Only God can reveal such importance, purpose, and beautiful meaning.

We have been in such a great spiritual battle that a Church-wide fast was called to address this and to seek greater strength and intervention from God. It was during this fast that God revealed what we have been living through. The demonic spirit world has continually fought against God and His purpose for human life. There have been times when these battles have been more intense, as in what the Church has now been experiencing. Those who are young have been the primary targets, but overall the young have stood firm. Some in the Church that have had greater experience in battle have not been attacked as severely as others. Yet there are some in God’s Church that have had great experience in battle but have been attacked on every side in a concerted effort because they are a part of the primary structure of the Church and have been targeted because of that. Again, the demonic spirit world has been losing their battle against God just as it has throughout time.
Then Ron lets those members of his cult that are suffering right now know that if they are suffering it is their fault.  They are not sealed to his god.  Only those not sealed are being persecuted.

Over this period of five months, these evil spirit beings have been given power to attack, hurt, and mentally harass “only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads” (Rev. 9:4). This has nothing in context to do with people in the world, but is about God’s people. A distinction is made concerning those who have the seal of God on their foreheads. These people are those who are to be resurrected as part of the 144,000 and cannot be “hurt” even if they were to literally lose their physical life, as they will be in the first resurrection. Yet this evil spirit world attacked many of these, but could not “hurt” them because of their part in God’s plan, for they are sealed and have already been tested to be those who will always stand firm until their change comes.

Ron's god is still out there looking for 63,000 COG members to bring over to Ron's cult. Ron is just as stupid as Dave Pack who also thinks large numbers of COG members will return to the "true church."

Then there are the others of the remnant (Church) who have suffered the most because most are younger (newer) in the Body, yet as a testimony to God, most have stood firm. This demonic world has also harassed and attacked many of those of the scattering whom God is preparing to draw as the 63,000 and who will eventually benefit from what they have been experiencing. Even though they are unwittingly unaware of it.

So beware all of you heathens and COG heretics out there...Satan is on a rampage and is ready to unleash WWIII on you.  You may only have 5 months left to revel in your wantonness. Drink up and enjoy!

The demonic world has already been moving this world into its final war and it has been waging a great spiritual war against God’s people. It is indeed a great “woe” to mankind. God’s people are being made stronger, though suffering in battle, and the world is about to be thrust into battle that has been thus far held back by God.

Once this five-month period of this First Woe comes to an end, the United States and the other scattered nations of Israel will begin their collapse, quickly leading to a final nuclear conflict unleashed as described by the Sixth Trumpet (the Second Woe). The Fifth Trumpet is the First Woe and it truly is the prelude to World War III.

"evil spirit beings"....Really! I thought Armstrongism didn't allow celebration of Halloween. Besides, it's the wrong time of the year for all this nonsense. We just got past the Spring Equinox and are moving toward celebrating Summer Solstice.

Seems like the ACOGs have declared the entire month of April to be April Fools.

As the UNCF always states in their ads: A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

It would be a colossal waste of mind and money to follow these yahoos and bozos, but apparently enough people do it.

Ron Weinland prophesied that Gerald Flurry, Rod Meredith and Richard Ames would die in 2008, and that UCG's top ministry wouldn't die until sometime after these other men had died.

Well, UCG President Dennis Luker pre-deceased them all, earlier this year.

Ron noticed:

"This example of fitting some pieces in the wrong place as God is revealing truth, has been especially true over the past few years where timing has been a factor."

That "God's Puzzle Solved" messes the COG prophetic fools up every time. Wrong puzzle-right piece, right piece-wrong puzzle, puzzle with no pieces-pieces with no puzzle. It's all puzzling but in the end, these guys are never wrong, just puzzled.

"This was true about when the job of the two witnesses began. Who they were was true, but He then revealed that the timing for their job was to begin later."

Ok, we have the right puzzle and I am the right piece but it's not puzzle ass-emby time yet. How can it be? I'm in prison. I love the parts that are true to Ron. Ron's parts are true but God is puzzled.

"Though we knew the countdown for Christ’s return had begun, we did not know God’s timing would alter that count until He revealed Christ would return on a Pentecost and not on Trumpets. As we came to Pentecost 2012, we had to address timing again as we entered the “Day of the Eternal.” Once again, the picture of what God was doing became clearer as some pieces of the puzzle were simply not yet fitted to the puzzle or had been placed in the wrong area."

Translation: I have no freaking clue how this puzzle goes together. I know I have the right pieces but God keeps changing the puzzle so the right now don't fit the new puzzle. They were true pieces of the old puzzle but God changed the puzzle. That crazy God is always one puzzle ahead of my pieces. I'm never gonna catch up!!!

This nasty habit of reformulating and recalculating why both the prophet and God are still both right even though we can't seem to get a clear picture of what the hell the puzzle looks like or when we will be allowed to put it together without changing puzzles on them, is classic COG stupid.

Reminds me of a great quote.

"One of the biggest mistakes Bible readers make is reading it like a newspaper."

DennisCDiehl said...

PS Ron always figures out the real piece of the puzzle when the last one past with God or Christ not coming through for him. It's not so much God revealing new truth about it all as Ron screwing it all up to begin with and just making it up as he goes. But that's what Apostles and Non-Prophets like Bob Thiel do too.

Is anybody even following Weinland?

Seems to me he's Captain Irrelevant.

I predict that Ronald Weinland will go to prison as a convicted felon for Income Tax Evasion.



It's already happened.

Unlike anything that Conald Swineland has predicted.
