Why is a Church of God leader, though a deluded self-appointed one, placing so much emphasis upon wild fantasies of the visions of Fatima and other apparitions that a few in the Catholic church place significance upon? Why is he so obsessed with a topic that 99% of the world could care less about, including most Catholics?
Its the same old story in the Church of God that has made it it's mission to obsess of the insignificant things while ignoring the bigger things. The Church of God has been one big conspiracy factory for many decades. Every crazy out-of-this-world phenomenon or conspiracy theory has found fertile ground in the minds of Church of God people. Of course these are the same people that take great delight in reading Daniel, Ezekiel and the Book of Revelation and using them to create scenarios of destruction that is unimaginable. They take great pleasure in creating scenarios of famine, death, and war; preaching everything from concentration camps, rampaging Muslims and Chinese armies to parents eating their children and being hung up on meat hooks.
Bob Elisha Elijah Amos Thiel, a former Catholic, still places great significance upon these wild stories just like he finds significance in Mayan mythology and Christian myths. All of these things t are far more significant to him that anything about
According to the latest from the self-appointed one, apparitions of Mary will soon be visible signs all over the world.
I wrote a book titled Fatima Shock! to warn people that in the future apparitions that most people will think are Mary will likely be part of the signs and lying wonders that the Bible warns will deceive the world (it also gives more information of what the Fatimists really think of their previous pope as well as their view of what the so-called undisclosed portion of the “third secret”) contains.
Although most non-Catholics do not think that Fatima can affect them, if they live long enough this century, they will find that this is not the case. Fatima is a much bigger deal than people realize and seems to tie into a variety of prophecies throughout the Bible (e.g. Isaiah 47, Matthew 24, 2 Thessalonians 2, Revelation 17). How apparitions are likely to affect the world at the end seems to be a missing dimension in understanding prophecy by most who profess Christ(see also the video Marian Apparitions May Fulfill Prophecy).
