Bob Thiel, the non-ordained self-appointed false prophet of the Continuing Ed Church of God has proclaimed that the tribulation cannot start until at least 2017. Thiel has no more credibility that Dave Pack has. Both are certified liars that use the Bible as their weapon of choice. Both weld it as a tool of destruction and damnation. Both are impotent little men who have regressed to bullying boys who are both deeply embarrassed by Jesus.
When is the earliest year that the Great Tribulation can?
While a false prophet has apparently taught that now is the time to now get pregnant as the end supposedly is near (see PCG allegedly going further over the edge, plus proclaiming time to flee is imminent and pregnancy should now be avoided), how near is the Great Tribulation?
Those who believed and understand what the Bible actually teaches realize that the Great Tribulation cannot begin before 2017. (Actually on those in the cult of Thielism believe this baloney. Those who understand the Bible know for a fact that Bob is a liar.)
At this instant, unless we see more major conflict in the Middle East between now and the end of the Summer, it is unlikely that the Great Tribulation can begin prior to 2018.
The Great Tribulation is coming, but it will not begin in 2013. And, as I announced shortly after Barack Obama was re-elected, I do not believe that it can begin prior to 2017.
