Bob Thiel Believes His Little Cult Will Produce the Two Witnesses Right Before the Media and the Catholic Church Attacks His Group Causing the Famine of the Word

Bob Thiel continues his downward spiral into the madness of religiosity.  The end time message is all about him and his little personality cult and how they and they alone will be warning the world about the false prophet to come.  Thiel feels his message is so huge that that it will trigger massive news media coverage that will lead to his group alone being ridiculed.

Then to twist that media coverage even further, Thiel claims that he and his personality cult will be able to use that coverage to their advantage.  They will then be able to get their message out to the world.  Billions around the globe will be listening to Bob Thiel present his message in front of his crooked bookcases. These billions of humanity then will be held accountable for rejecting the message of Bob as 2/3 of them are destroyed.

Isn't amazing the things a self-appointed prophet can come up with, especially when it is an Armstrongite prophet!

Partially because the message of the people of the holy covenant, will enrage the upcoming prince/king of the North (Daniel 11:28-30). One or more associated with the Continuing Church of God will be identifying that the European “prince” (Daniel 9:26-27) who is rising up to become a king, will not be able to truly bring peace, but instead about bring war and will be in league with the final Antichrist. This will likely trigger major media coverage. Scrutiny of real, as well as claimed, COG literature will likely happen and various aspects of real and incorrect COG doctrines will likely be ridiculed.

Media coverage would then be expected to cover more the gospel message and this may be associated with the “short work” of Romans 9:28. Since the true COG is so small, it is highly likely that it getting significant media coverage will help fulfill Matthew 24:14. Some of the Philadelphia remnant will be explaining that it is Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God and not the rise of a militaristic leader that the world needs. According to Daniel 11:32 it is “the people who know their God [that] shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” Hundreds of millions, if not billions, will receive at least a partial witness.

Bob feels that the Catholic Church will be so incensed by his message and his books that they will bring intense persecution on his personality cult.

All of that will likely trigger the King of the North to take actions that lead to the end–this includes the persecutions, pre- (Daniel 7:25a, 11:29-36) and post-tribulation (Daniel 7:25b).
Since “Catholic” leaders have renounced the millennial portion of the gospel message, some of them will not want it to be broadcast into all the world in the 21st century (for some details, please see Did The Early Church Teach Millenarianism?). They will support the King of the North’s efforts to stifle the message, probably in the name of “tolerance” and/or calling parts of the message “hate speech.” A famine of the word is coming (Amos 8:11-12; cf. Romans 10:14-15).

And in the end these rising leaders (likely some ‘new’ type of top leader of Europe along with some type of pontiff) will not like that–they will not want the world to learn what they will really do (and may not even believe it themselves at first, cf. Isaiah 10:5-7). They and/or their supporters will also likely falsely teach that the faithful Philadelphians will be espousing a doctrine (millenarianism) of a coming antichrist. Whatever condemnations that they and/or their followers make towards the Philadelphian faithful and the Continuing Church of God will trigger persecution (Daniel 11:29-35, Revelation 12:13-15; see also Persecutions by Church and State). This will also lead to the end–the start of the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21; Daniel 11:39; cf. Matthew 24:15; Daniel 11:31) as well as a time of protection for the faithful Philadelphia Christians (Revelation 3:10;12:14-16; 
It continues to be fascinating watching the mental melt down of Thiel as his delusions grow stronger every day.  The recent article by Dennis is talking about this every thing we see happening with Bob.

Dr Thiel must really be out of the "let's expose the Catholic Church" loop. Any simple search on the topic of will produce thousands of really harsh and revealing websites and videos. None of which are Dr. T.

The Catholic Church has never heard of Dr. T and would not care if it did. They have formidable scholars and theologians along with secular business types on their backs every day in powerful ways that I am sure do get their attention. But they would not have the time of day to notice the attack and exposure of Mighty Mouse.

Didn't the famine of the Word begin when Herbert Armstrong left the Church of God Seventh Day?

That is, the Word, as the person of Jesus and what he was really like as the coming Lord and Master of Christians?

Sadly and of course as Bob says often, his first mistake as was Dave Packs, was making Daniel mean what it never meant and does not mean.

Dave, of course, made a fool and continues to make a fool of himself and his "theology" by making Haggai mean what it never meant. Haggai neither had WCG splinters in mind 2500 years hense nor Dave Pack and the RCG in mind as the solution .

While I am tempted to write more about it, these men are not "off in the timing," they are off in the premise.

Without the unknowable future, the COGs would have no real purpose as they are incapable of viewing life in the present. They, like the Apostle Paul, will wake up old someday with nothing they thought coming to pass actually having come to pass. They will exit 'having fought the good faith with a crown laid up for ME".

The false premise is ruining their present lives.

I think it's funny how as soon as Armstrongists like Bob postulate their insignificant ministry's ending will cause "the famine of the word." However, what about a year ago, before the beginning of Bob's insignificant ministry? No famine of the word then? Or if you wanted to back it up all the way to pre-HWA, what about those "1900 years" before all those "truths" were suddenly "revealed" to ol' Herb again? No famine of the word then? Makes no sense.

Thiel, Pack, Flurry et all are mirroring the god in which they believe. They are reflecting an ugly place, the anthropomorphism of one Herbert W. Armstrong. Their teaching ultimately results in spiritual homelessness, in fact, a state of not even wanting a home, extreme prejudice against the very concept of having a home.

Doom and gloom, doom AND gloom. You'd think the CoGs were actually looking forward to being persecuted, tortured and killed...well, it sure scares the hell out of the kids, right?

Personally, I'll be glad when there is a "Famine of the Word" and I hope it lasts for thousands of years.
