He uses as his source of information the WorldNewsDaily as his source of TRUE news. WND is the favorite "news" site for the conservative Armstrongites who feel the entire world is sinking into depths of depravity, particularly here in the US with a gentile President.
Thiel says all of the "so-called Christians" and the book authors are all wrong. Only he knows the real time of the return of
Just as Noah did in ancient times, world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham is sounding the alarm that the Second Coming is “near” and signs of the end of the age are “converging now for the first time since Jesus made those predictions.”
.Earlier this month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the United Nations General Assembly “biblical prophecies are being realized.”.And last week, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., claimed the world has entered the last days.“When you see up is down and right is wrong, when this is happening, we were told this: that these days would be as the days of Noah,” Bachmann said..The remarks by Graham, Netanyahu and Bachmann come amid a steadily rising wave of public interest in the end times, as demonstrated by recent polls and New York Times and Amazon.com bestselling books such as “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future,” by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, and “Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change,” by Pastor John Hagee. http://www.wnd.com/2013/10/billy-graham-sounds-alarm-for-2nd-coming/#AuAU01RTqCOwD3ud.99Protestant minister John Hagee and Mark Biltz have suggested 2014 as a possible date for Jesus return.
While we are in the last days, and probably in the time that Jesus referred to as the beginning of sorrows (Matthew 24:4-8), there is no possible way that Jesus will return in 2014. Actually, I do not believe it is biblically possible that Jesus will return before 2021.
Thiel says these people are all wrong for saying the end is here, yet that has also been the same mantra that Armstrongism has spouted for over 70 years. The end is nigh, lower your standard of living and send your money in for the final push.
Theil then quotes, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, as his source for the true date so that he can declare:
And since that tribulation cannot start for at over 3 1/2 years from now, then there are another 3 1/2 years, etc., this means that Jesus will not return before 2021.
There you have it! You have a few more years to eat ham and shrimp and decorate that Christmas tree before you repent and return to the one true church of Bob Thiel.
