Bob Thiel: Only Philadelphia Christians (i.e. Continuing Ed Church of God) Will Flee To Safety In Petra



Once again, Bob Thiel, the non-ordained self-appointed false prophet of the Continuing Ed Church of God, emphasizes just how special his little group is.  Only those in the CedCOG are the true Philadelphia church and all other COG's are apostates. 

The easy translation is, if you belong to Bob - you are saved, if you belong to another dude - you are NOT going to Petra!

Can you imagine what a slug fest it is going to be when all these various COG's all show up at the narrow gate to Petra and they start fighting about who really belongs there.  What a bunch of morons!

It is interesting to note that Jesus was telling Christians that when they see Daniel 11:31/12:11 fulfilled, then Christians need to flee. And that they should pray that this flight will not be on the Sabbath (Saturday) or the winter. Do you pray that?

Why do people flee?


People flee to be protected!
Fleeing does not sound much like being “raptured.”

What happens after Christ’s people flee? Jesus explains:
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21).
But are any Christians promised protection from this tribulation?
Yes, notice what Jesus told the Philadelphia Church:
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write…10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth (Revelation 3:7,10).
It needs to be emphasized that ONLY the Philadelphia portion of the Church of God, other Christians will be affected by the Great Tribulation and the related persecutions (Revelation 12:17).

WOW!!!

PLEASE FORGIVE THE CAPS, BUT BOOB'S GROUP IS SO SMALL AND GOD NEEDS TO BE AWARE OF IT'S WONDERFULNESS, SO THIS MIGHT HELP GRAB HIS ATTENTION.

(JUST LIKE THE UCG AND OTHER JERKWAD ARMSTRONGIST CHURCHES SEEM TO NEED SOMETHING EXTRA TO CATCH GOD'S ATTENTION SINCE OBVIOUSLY THEY'VE BEEN NOTHING BUT A TOTAL JOKE SO FAR.)

GO, COWS!!!

MOOOOO!!!!!

As we all know, the Armstrongists insist that there are 7 church eras, based on churches in the seven cities in Asia Minor. This leads to the unfortunate conclusion that the last two eras of the church are Philadelpha (the good church era) and Laodocea (the bad church era). The Armstrongists are arguing about who is who and in what era.

It seems they missed the boat.

There was another region in Asia Minor in the first century named Nysa. It was a region of the Maenad, female followers of Dionysus (the Roman Bacchus), the most significant members of the Thiasus. Their name literally translates as "raving ones". Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzy, through a combination of dancing and drunken intoxication. In this state, they would lose all self-control, begin shouting excitedly, engage in uncontrolled sexual behavior, and ritualistically hunt down and tear to pieces animals—and, at least in myth, sometimes men and children—devouring the raw flesh. They are thought to have often handled or worn snakes.

Given the current state of the Cult of Herbert Armstrong, it is easy to divine that there was a lost part of Revelation -- the letter to Nysa. Of course, the Nysaians (is that a word) were completely daft, given to irrational behavior. Their judgment was likely more harsh than any of the other churches because they were completely insane.

It is therefore evident that the current Armstrongist Churches of God have entered the Nysa era, given to insane posturing and outrageous boasts and claims.

Forget Philadelphia. Forget Laodocea. The age of Nysa is upon us and this is the most simple and direct explanation of Thiel, Meredith, Pack, Flurry, Weinland and all the rest of the insane cult leaders in meltdown.

Nysa is the last era.

Good luck.

And here's hoping your medical will cover the qualified mental health professional you sorely need.

I think Douglas is right on track, considering one of Bob Thiel's other sources, the Mayans. I was watching a special on the Mayans on PBS leading up to the ticking down of their calendar, and was quite surprised to learn that the Mayans were so adept at partying, that when they could no longer hold their alcohol due to vomiting, they would take enemas with the stuff to get to the next level.

This Petra fairy tale of Loma's is just unbelievable in its persistance! I thought these people were ridiculous in continuing to hold to British Israelism, Germany = Assyria, Simon Magus started the Catholic Church, and Nimrod and Semiramis being responsible for all modern pleasurable traditions and customs. Somehow all of these extrabiblical teachings never fall from the Hot 100 of their Hit Parade.

Blatant pseudo apostle worship, that's all it is.

Better crank up your fundraising, Bob! Flurry is probably negotiating with the Arabs to buy Petra as we speak.

OK, Bob:

The Sabbath day...where?

The winter...where?

You don't need a mail-order Ph.D. to ask such obvious questions, dude.

Bob Thiel possibly buying Petra from Jordanian government? That definitely out maneuvers Amazing David Pack with his Little Armstrongite Town and flurried flurrible Flurry with his Armstrong Disposed Property, Written Books, and Personal Artifacts Rebuying Program. Only morons would believe that a person or an institution can bring about salvation whether physical or spiritual. That power belongs only to Christ who saves us despite of who we are because He died for our sins. Why can't people use common sense? Only Christ saves, not Thiel, not any of those pretenders to be successor of HWA, nor any HWA remnant churches. People deserve to be where they are because they refuse to use simple common sense.
