Those poor misguided ignorant buffoons that lead the various COG's don't know what they are doing wrong. Bob Thiel does though! He is the only FINAL authority on all things scriptural relating to the end times. The rest of the uneducated and willfully ignorant leaders are in the dark about the truth.
When Thiel's end times hits these ignorant men will not know the end times is here till a bomb blows them to smithereens.
Because Thiel knows all of these hidden knowledge, he will be in Petra by that time leading his 20 followers as they install indoor plumbing in his cave and electricity - which will be furnished by bicycle power that his acolytes will peddle on 24 hours a day.
Church of God apostles/prophets need light so they can write down their amazing prophecies and predictions - which in the Church of God fail 100% of the time.

Certain COG groups have misinterpreted part of this dream and believe that the toes in verses 41-43 must refer to ten currently existing 21st century nations. This mistake will mean that when the final beast power forms, if it has more than 10 (PCG) or 11 (in LCG’s case) currently existing nations that those who rely on the misinterpretation will not realize that the Great Tribulation will begin until it is too late.
Most in the USA and the Anglo-Saxon descended nations do not see the ‘handwriting on the wall” for their societies. Yet, although most in the COGs do that, they tend to misunderstand other parts of Daniel and do not see the handwriting on the wall that will affect the.
Persecution is coming and most in the COGs do not realize how the various persecutions will affect them.
Those who do understand this properly will have the opportunity to know prior to the start of the Great Tribulation, approximately when it will begin. Those that claim that the “prince to come” in Daniel 9:26 is Jesus and that He is the one that confirms a covenant with many for one week, etc., will not understand. The “prince to come” is the final European King of the North. He is the one in Daniel 11:31 who fulfills bringing the end of the sacrifice and offering 3 1/2 years (the middle of a seven year prophetic week). Jesus did not destroy the city nor sanctuary, nor is there a biblical record that He confirmed a seven-year covenant.
Those who hold an opposite view are in error.
Nearly all COG groups either do not understand this and/or have significant errors in their understanding of parts of this.
Despite more information being available, many will not understand. But in the end, the spiritually wise, the remnant of the Philadelphians, will understand: (i.e. Me and my followers ONLY)
Yet many, including those in nearly all COGs, will NOT understand key aspects of Daniel 2,7,9,11, & 12. Those who misunderstand the sequence and various particulars of the prophecies in the Book of Daniel will not know when the Great Tribulation will come and hence will likely be killed or otherwise greatly affected by it.
