The Church of God a Worldwide Association had an article out recently on the attributes of a true prophet. Now that the Church of God feels it is getting close to the end times Herbert preached about, more and more of them are discussing prophets. Part of that issue might also arose from the fact we have a myriad of fools in the COG who have self appointed themselves as God's end time mouthpiece. From Wadsworth Ohio to Edmond Oklahoma, to Arroyo Grande California, the foolish shepherds are proclaiming their unholy attribute of prophethood.
COGWA listed these qualities of a prophet in the COG community:
Four tests to prove whether a prophet is true
We need to carefully consider God’s Word—the Bible—in order to discern between false and true prophets. The Bible provides four tests to determine the genuineness of a prophet.
1. Does the conduct of the prophet reflect godly character?
2. Do the predictions of the prophet come true?
3. Are the words of the prophet consistent with Scripture?
4. Do the people benefit spiritually from the prophet’s ministry?
Do you know of any man in the Church of God that fits ANY of those criteria? Certainly no COG minister, evangelists or church leader has any of those attributes...well, maybe except for one...
I will give you one guess as to WHO thinks he is the one and only true mouthpiece of God's prophetic word...
It is our very own Almost-arrested Elisha, Elijah, Amos, Joshua, Chief Overseer and the bitter disappointing "son" of Rod Meredith! Who knew????????? Shocking! Right?
Here is what the glorious end time prophet had to say in regards to COGWA's list:
Although COGWA left out some criteria, even based upon the above criteria, there is one person in one of the COGs that meets all those criteria, and he is not part of COGWA, but physically heads up the (improperly named) Continuing Church of God (CCOG).Not only does apostate Thiel claim he is a true prophet, he also make sit know that the knows MORE that COGWA does when it come to prophethood. The delusional self-appointed fool claims he has another import attribute that makes him a true prophet. He dreams dreams! It still boggles my mind that this man is still claiming a nightmare he had over some bad seafood make shim a prophet!
The Bible teaches:6 “Hear now My words:
If there is a prophet among you,
I, the Lord, make Myself known to him in a vision;a
I speak to him in a dream. (Numbers 12:6)
So what is going to happen to those of us who who know Apostate Bob to be a false prophet and mock him regularly? We will not receive a prophet's reward!I had at least two such dreams, and others had dreams, essentially concerning those about me
He says this:
Consider also that Jesus taught:41 He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. (Matthew 10:41)
Apostate and self-appointed Thiel is NOT a prophet. He never has been and will never be one. No one in their right mind should be following this certified liar who self-appointed himself, gave himself all kinds of titles and preaches absurd sermons in front of crooked bookcases, file cabinets, doorways and sheer curtains. Nor does thrusting your big Bible in the air make you a real minister.Jesus is telling His followers that if a true prophet is out there, that they need to follow. Yet, in this Laodicean time (Revelation 3:14-18), most real Christians will not listen to what Jesus said on this and many other matters.
Towards the end of silly screed he has some more Bible verses to quote that he claims talks about himself and his status as prophet:
Apostate Their does NOT have the "sure word of prophecy," never has and never will. No one in there right mind needs to heed the words of this delusional foolish false prophet. There is no "light shining in a dark place" in the improperly named "continuing" Church of God. Every single thing Apostate Thiel utters as "truth" is directly his OWN interpretation of how he WANTS things to be.In the (improperly named) Continuing Church of God:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Peter 1:19-21, KJV)
I can also state as a sure fact that the Holy Spirit is NOT using Elijah Thiel or inspiring him words to speak. Even Rod Meredith saw through the delusional mental meltdown of Amos Thiel years ago and refused to acknowledge Elisha Thiel's self appointed prophethood.
What Apostate Thiel promotes is counterfeit Christianity.
