Bitter Bob Tells His Mostly Black Membership That Slaves Are To Obey Their Masters

Bitter Bob wrote in his latest member letter about ANOTHER dream someone in his personality cult had.  Bitter Bob is placing lots of status on various dreams by himself and members that he claims legitimize him as the ONLY end time TRUE COG leader.

Bitter Bob writes:

On March 28, 2014, I flew into London for a two night stopover, before heading to Kenya for a CCOG leadership conference.  Within an hour of arriving at my hotel, Senhor Pires came for baptismal counseling.  As we walked from the hotel lobby to my room, he wanted to tell me about a dream that he had.

Here is what he said:
I had this dream. In it was a vision of a congregation of the Continuing Church of God inside a transparent glass bubble (like a balloon). And everyone, I mean everyone apart from the speaker, was black. The speaker was white.And I was asking myself inside that bubble…”why is everyone black here?”
It made no sense to me.  I wondered why I would see this.
When Senhor Pires told me the above, I began to laugh.  I said to him, “Didn’t you know that the vast majority of people in the Continuing Church of God were black?”

And he said, “No, I figured that most would be white.”

I then told him, “This is quite interesting. Your dream seems to be one of three or more directly related to the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) that has had confirmation.”

Given the racist stance that British Israelism takes towards those of other races it is amazing that Bitter Bob is attracting mostly black members, at least overseas.  Which leads to another thought.  Apparently this means that he has very little membership here in the States but a majority of followers in Africa.

Bitter Bob goes on to stress that dreams are extremely  important to him and his personality cult.  We are also supposed to understand that he is the ONLY one in this end time that is having dreams.

While this may not seem to be a massive ‘earth-shattering’ dream, it is yet additional confirmation that God has used dreams/visions to communicate to at least three individuals who all later became part of the Continuing Church of God.  Dreams and visions are something that God intended to use during the end times (cf. Acts 2:17-18; Joel 2:28-29).  Elijah apparently once thought that God would be in something dramatic, but then only was in “a still small voice” (2 Kings 19:11-13).
I believe that they are partial confirmations that the Continuing Church of God was to lead (two dreams happened prior to CCOG’s formation), and now is leading, the final phase of the work.

Then in an appalling lack of taste Bitter Bob concludes with a scripture quote that tells slaves to be obedient to their MASTERS and not to answer back (or question).  I guess when Bitter Bob says it we must believe it since he IS the MASTER!

The Apostle Paul wrote:
1 But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: 2 that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; 3 the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things —  4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.
6 Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded, 7 in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility,  8 sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.
9 Exhort bondservants to be obedient to their own masters, to be well pleasing in all things, not answering back, 10 not pilfering, but showing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things. (Titus 2:1-10)

What a conundrum this is turning out to be!

Actually, British Israelism very effectively justifies and supports white paternalism though, so Bob and his little splinter are falling into a very familiar pattern. Way to go, Bwana.

This sounds like Bob Thiel has virtually no real followers at all.

The white people in the United States are not falling for Bob Thiel's pagan prophetic nonsense.

The black people in Africa are just scamming Bob Thiel for what they can get from him.

Dreams and visions, purportedly from "the good side" were one of the most important forms of evidence presented in the Salem Witch Trials. Was 1692 close enough to count as "end times"? Those people were scary, and I don't mean the witches!

Seriously, if you can fall for Bitter Bob's drivel, you can fall for anything.
