Bitter Bob is apparently having an identity crisis. He is desperately trying to "prove" he is a prophet. Everything he does has some miraculous scriptural meaning to it.
Bitter Bob say that when he told LCG where to stick it with the job they offered him, he did so on faith. Scriptures proves this is what he had to do....and you are supposed to accept it blindly and without any prejudice whatsoever.
When I told LCG I would not be back on 12/28/12, I did so without having lined up groups to support me. Would not a prophet truly walk by faith and not by sight (cf. 2 Corinthians 5:7? That is what what happened and believe that this should be considered as another proper fruit.
Bitter Bob is also attempting to let us know he does NOT take a salary from the improperly named Continuing Church of God. That would be pretty hard considering the overwhelming majority of his listeners do NOT send him any money. What ever is left over he wants you to believe that is 100% funneled into his outreach. Not one single dime goes to Bitter Bob or any member of his family. If Bitter Bob expects us all to believe that he has never taken a dime for his own benefit or his family's then I have a campus in Pasadena I could sell him.....
Next Bob starts taking about himself and has to drag in Rod Meredith yet again
The Apostle Paul admonished Christians to pray for the gift of prophecy in 1 Corinthians 14:1-5. For decades, I obeyed that biblical admonition. On October 3, 2008, Dr. Meredith (Presiding Evangelist of the Living Church of God) called me and said to me, “God may consider you to be a prophet.” Notice that this came from a long-time evangelist and did not first come out from me. It was Dr. Meredith who first brought up the topic about Bob Thiel being a prophet. I had never mentioned my prayers related to this prior to that telephone conversation, and when I did then, he concurred that I had been doing what the Bible said to do.
Bitter Bob then dropped to his knees and started praying deep prayers. He expected God to make him a prophet. Then Gaylyn Bonjour had to stupidly open his mouth and doubly bless Bitter Bob. Bitter Bob then tells us that if we do not believe he prayed for this happen then we are not willing to let God do his work in Bitter Bob.
Furthermore, although at least two LCG ministers told me that I did not need to have hands laid upon me to be a prophet, I was not convinced. So, I prayed that if I was a prophet that God would arrange something to happen in Charlotte, NC on a trip I was going to make there in mid-December 2011. God answered that prayer in a manner that I did not expect when LCG minister Gaylyn Bonjour anointed me and unexpectedly prayed that God would grant me a double-portion of His Spirit (cf. 2 Kings 2:9-13). Later that day, LCG’s top three evangelists told me that they would correct the issues that I had been bringing up to them for years (some in accordance with Matthew 18:15-18). Yet, they did not resolve matters when they said that they would. What kind of fruits were they displaying?Next the Bitter man says that all prophets have dreams and that he had a dream, several in fact, and they ALL came true! Not only does he "dream prophetic dreams" he also has a 100% accurate prophecy rate.
Do you believe that answered prayer can be the fruit of a prophet? If not, then consider that you might not be willing to understand how God often works.
The Bible says that prophets will sometimes be given a dream by God (Numbers 12:6). And I had a dream that was confirmed. So did another who also became part of CCOG. Also, there was a third dream from another who became part of CCOG in 2014 that I expect to report about as well.
As far as prophetic fruits, I have made hundreds of prophetic statements and explanations that have been confirmed by subsequent events.Bitter Bob has 33 confirmed prophetic utterances that have come true. Is Bitter Bob now wearing his 33rd Degree Masonic ring? Or is he trying to sound like Jesus who died when he was 33? Nothing is off the table when it comes to Bitter bob!
There were also at least 33 associated with my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret SectBitter Bob then gets in another dig at LCG for ignoring his prophetic status. He is placing himself as an equal to martyr Stephen and that current COGs will reject him particularly when it comes to Rod Meredith.
Those in Jesus’ day expected something other than Jesus. Jesus (Matthew 23:29-35; Luke 11:49-50) and the martyr Stephen (Acts 7:52) made it clear that people who thought that they were God’s people repeatedly have not accepted God’s prophets–even though they thought that they would (Matthew 23:30).
The fact that I have correctly explained various aspects of end time prophecy that LCG originally agreed with me on but changed is another prophetic fruit.
Bitter Bob feels rejected by soooooooooooooooooooo many in he COG and it clearly annoys him. He has to equate his rejection with the rejection HWA received. Since Bitter Bob is an equal to HWA it all must be true!
Notice something from the late Herbert W. Armstrong:
PERSECUTORS HAVE CALLED me a “false prophet.” Now how would you KNOW whether the accusation IS true- or false?…
Actually, it probably is not very important to you to know whether my persecutors are right or wrong, when they call me dirty names, hurl epithets, resort to innuendo, impute sinister motives, strive to discredit, attempt character assassination. What is important to YOU is whether what you read in The PLAIN TRUTH really is the truth – whether what you hear over The WORLD TOMORROW broadcast is true- not whether I , as an individual, am true or false.
