Gird Your Loins and Light Your Lamps! The Final Phase of the Work Is Here!

Ladies and gentlemen!  Fill your lamps with new oil and light them.  Gird your loins and prepare for the end is nigh!

But never fear, the righteous one is here to lead you into all truth! The one and only TRUE Church of God that has not been taken over by weak effeminate leaders is the Continuing Church of God.  Only the most desiccated COG members on the earth today are part of this amazing work.  With the recent humiliation of David C Pack, God has now placed his mantle on Bob Thiel unless there is another COG "organizational change."

It is the highly dedicated in the real Church of God (COG) that will finish the human part of the final phase of the work before (Matthew 24:14-15) and during (Revelation 11:3-14) the Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord. Presuming no significant organizational changes, for many reasons, the final phase of the work will be led by the Continuing Church of God (throughout Church of God history there have been significant organizational changes, so one must be cautious as more can happen).
Organizational changes have come and gone in Armstrongism.  Each new alliteration seems to be wackier than the last.  Bob Thiel is no exception.  How long will it be till Thiel's group splinters?

Thiel then makes this claim about his group - which has been the claim of all 700 splinter groups over the last  many decades.

This final phase of the work seemingly will consist of identifying what is happening in the world (specifically also in Europe, the Middle East, and the Anglo-descended nations), finishing the proclamation of Christ’s gospel of the kingdom as a witness along with persecution (Matthew 24:9-14), the rise and work of the two witnesses (Revelation 11:2-12; which will likely overlap a few days with Matthew 24:14), the likely assistance to the two witnesses by the scattered flock (Revelation 20:4; cf. Luke 9:2-6), the three angel’s messages (Revelation 14:8-11; plus other angelic interventions), and the witness of those persecuted and martyred for Jesus (cf. Revelation 17:6). And then Jesus will return and establish the Kingdom of God.
Thiel has been slyly hinting that he will be one of the two witless witnesses for quit some time now.  He will not directly say he is one of the two, but he feels he is.  He also believes his message will lead to great persecution for some in his personality cult.

Thiel thinks that because he  speaks out against Catholics and those that are ecumenical, they will soon try to kill him and his followers.

Being killed as the result of persecution is seemingly also part of the final phase of the work that some of God’s people will endure:
12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.” (Revelation 14:12-13; cf. 6:11)
Thiel obviously has been reading the Dave Pack Play Book because he too feels his ranks will soon swell to impressive numbers. COG members will soon flock to this last great work spearheaded by Thiel.  The  only problem with this influx of new members is that mos of them are fake Christians because they will not sick by Thiel's side in times of trouble.

It is possible that this short work will temporarily swell the ranks of the Church of God (including some Philadelphians, but perhaps with many Laodiceans and many others not truly faithful—many may well fall away—though some of the first will be last and the last first, cf. Mark 10:31). Some will be faithful and bear fruit, while many others may leave (cf. Matthew 13:18 -23; 2 Thessalonians 2:3) once the persecuting tribulation that seems prophesied to occur prior to the Great Tribulation hits (cf. Matthew 24:9-10;21). Then the end will come.
As Bob grows into his two witless witness position he and his group will face more and more persecution. The news media and others will start going through his literature with a fine tooth come where they will mock it.

Partially because the message of the COG, 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. Final Phase

Thiel continues to suffer from humiliation by Rod Meredith and others who mock his self-appointed status.  He feels he is too great of man to deserve this ridicule.

Dr. Bob is a bit more dilussional, unstable and drifting faster into mental illness than than I would have guessed.

excuse me...delusional

Grandiose delusions
Main article: Grandiose delusions

"Grandiose delusions are distinct from grandiosity, in that the sufferer does not have insight into his loss of touch with reality. An individual is convinced he has special powers, talents, or abilities. Sometimes, the individual may actually believe they are a famous person or character.

Grandiose delusions or delusions of grandeur are principally a subtype of delusional disorder but could possibly feature as a symptom of schizophrenia and manic episodes of bipolar disorder.[11] Grandiose delusions are characterized by fantastical beliefs that one is famous, omnipotent, or otherwise very powerful. The delusions are generally fantastic, often with a supernatural, science-fictional, or religious bent. In colloquial usage, one who overestimates one's own abilities, talents, stature or situation is sometimes said to have 'delusions of grandeur'. This is generally due to excessive pride, rather than any actual delusions. Grandiose delusions or delusions of grandeur can also be associated with megalomania"

just sayin'

Ssshhhhh. Dr. Bob is busy exfoliating the skin on his nose, so some of his experiences with Uncle Roddy won't be obvious when he does his next You Tube parody of a prophet. It takes a lot of work, but eventually, all of the brown stains will fade.

There is only one way to get through to people like him, and that is continued, sustained, unrelenting ad hominem attacks!

That's where the problem lies...

Respect of persons:

King James Bible...
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Acts 10:34

Putting "Dr." before your name means nothing to people it matters most!

Does Weinland know Thiel is horning in on his action? What fiery wrath will Ron bring down on Bob's head for his impudence?

"Can we all get along?"...Rodney King

"NO!"...when you are all egomaniacal false prophets!"

Unity in the Church... 1Corinthians 1:12-14
…12Now I mean this, that each one of you is saying, "I am of Paul," and "I of Apollos," and "I of Cephas," and "I of Christ." 13Has Christ been divided? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius,…

...WOW, What a Revelation!
