We have all watched as Dave Pack has endlessly declared he has the most superfantabulous Church of God to ever exist in this dispensation of the Church of God movement. He has the best web sites, the most beautiful campus, the best magazines, the most astounding sermons, and the most loyal group of ministers the church has ever had.
We now know that is all just hot air blowing out of Wadsworth.
God's most important and best Church of God ever in the 6,000 yeas of bible history is now centered in Arroyo Grande, California! Kneel in awe!
What's that you say? Arroyo Grande? I bet you thought Church of God's picked "crown jewels" like Pasadena, or other beautiful locations like Cincinnati to headquarter their empires in. But no, Arroyo Grande has the most notable distinction of dramatically growing as a city in the 1970-1980's due to the expansion of its waste water treatment plant. Awesome! A city that grew because of human waste! How prophetic of Almost-arrested, Elisha, Elijah, Amos, Joshua, Habakuk, Doubly Blessed, Apostle, Prophet, End Time Witless Witness, Chief Overseer Bob Thiel to pick such a location. It seems appropriate that he would pick a city with a large waste treatment plant to resurrect his dreamy church in when all he is peddling is the waste and dregs of Armstrongism. Apostle Thiel is the Church of God's very own Elmer Gantry, out to save the world while his own life is a mess.
Habakkuk Thiel is bragging about how successful he is as a church leader and that he has reached more humans with his fledgling personality cult than any other Church of God has, especially when it compares to Rod Meredith and Dave Pack's outreach to the world.
Habakkuk Thiel claims he has preached a sermon about EVERY single topic Jesus has been recorded saying. Has Rod Meredith or Dave Pack ever done that? Apparently not since Thiel has to point this out for us all.
As far as Matthew 28:19-20 goes, one way that the Continuing Church of God. has done that is by teaching everything that Jesus is recorded to have said in the New Testament. Below are links to sermons that demonstrate that: (after each book below he listed his many sermons preached in front of his crooked bookcases or flowery sheer curtains)
MATTHEW Here are links to twelve sermons covering the 28 chapters of Matthew:
MARK Here is a link to a sermon covering all of Jesus’ words in the ‘Gospel of Mark’:
LUKE Here are links to eight sermons covering the entire ‘Gospel of Luke’:
The last sermon also covers Jesus’ words in the Book of Acts.
JOHN Here are links to a seven-part sermon series covering the entire ‘Gospel of John’:
REVELATION This is a link to a sermon covering words Jesus spoke as recorded in the Book of Revelation and in first and second Corinthians: Revelation: Jesus’ Final Words.All of that preaching about what Jesus said and yet the man still has no clue as to what the Jesus did or accomplished. Totally clueless.
Next the dreamy prophet wants you to know how awesome his group is by the number of languages that he has translated some of his bible thumping into:
So? What is the point? Just because you translate a booklet into the native language of certain countries does NOT mean you have been a witness to the nation. Thousands of Christian missionaries have already done a far better work than Thiel will EVER do in those nations. Besides, I can put a translate button on this very blog and reach hundreds of native tongues. Is that really being a witness? Not at all. Even though this blog has reached 216 nations, it ultimately does not mean a thing. Ultimately those figures are just as worthless as Thiel's list of languages.As far as languages go, notice the list of languages that we have links to...

The Doubly Blessed false prophet then makes the claim that his little group will soon be the fulfillment of Revelation 7. It is quit appropriate that Thiel lives next to a waster plant, as his claim is a steaming pile of bullshit!
The narcissistic and delusional false prophet will NEVER take a witness to the entire world and will certainly NEVER be a fulfillment of Revelation 7. That is an indisputable fact! He is no more going to do this than Dave Pack, Gerald Flurry, or Rod Meredith is going to. That is an indisputable fact too!We are setting ground work for the fulfillment of Revelation 7, for as God’s word says there will be:9 a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues (Revelation 7:9)14 “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 7:14)
Amos Thiel then claims his "jesus" will soon open doors for him around the world. How can that be when Thiel dose not even know the man or anything about him? Sure he throws the name around a couple times in a sermon or magazine article, usually saved for the last few paragraphs.
He then ends his "fact list" with rather comical statement:Philadelphian Christians realize that they need to go through the doors that Jesus opens (Revelation 3:7-9) and that includes reaching people in as many languages as the doors open to do so.
Although we have a lot more to do, we in the CCOG are leading The Final Phase of the Work.
