If you thought things can't get any crazier in the improperly named "continuing" Church of God with Almost arrested, Elisha, Elijah, Amos, Joshua, end time witness, apostle, prophet, further martyr, "worldwide" Overseer Bob Thiel, then you are in for some more fun!
The "worldwide" Overseer has never been properly ordained in a Church of God by a COG minister. After he self-appointed himself, he used the prayer of Gaylyn Bonjour in an attempt to make himself a "legitimate" minister and splinter cult leader. It was and still is all a fraud.
Now he has to make himself important in the eyes of his 1,997 African members. Second Witness Thiel has had to make up all kinds rules and doctrines for his new little cult. Due to his lack of ordination he has had to create a new rule in order to legitimize himself. He has instituted the "round robin" ordination. He ordains one of his African flock and then they ordain him. Neither ordination is legitimate, but that does not matter. He even resorts to "re-ordaining" some others that had been ordained by legitimate COG ministers.
In spite of this false prophet Thiel still has no legitimacy. Just because a mentally struggling man has a few bad nightmares and a minister prays a blessing on him does not make him a legitimate church leader, or a Christian for that matter.
No siree Bob! No apostolic succession in your ordination! No Sir!
