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).
