Oh Noes!!!!!!!!!!! China is building a superhighway to Europe in order to capture it

The mind of an Armstrongite splinter cult leader is a terrible thing to waste.  Leave it to these guys to constantly scour every newspaper article they can find for some event to fit their perverted end-time scenarios.  These spiritually bankrupt frauds go out of their way to find things that they think are sure signs of Herbert's prophecies coming to fruition.  They get all glassy eyed when they think they have found something to scare their members with.

Never one to be left to the sidelines, Almost-arrested, Elisha, Elijah, Amos, Joshua, doubly-blessed, improperly ordained, bitter "son" of Rod Meredith, naturopath and peddler of herbs and other concoctions, is breathlessly reporting how the Chinese are seeking to build a new "silk road" from China all the way to Armageddon.

When leaders of 28 nations gather in Beijing next week for a summit to map out China’s ambitious new Silk Road project, one question is likely to be on attendees’ minds – what exactly is the Belt and Road Initiative? …China pushing the ‘Silk Road’ project: A prelude for the ‘kings of the east’?
China wants all roads, digital and physical, to lead to it:
The Belt and Road Initiative, which comprises the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, was proposed by China in 2013, with the aim of building a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient Silk Road routes. May 17, 2016 
BEIJING: China has proposed an international scientific cooperation programme for Earth observation to provide digital backing to Beijing’s mega Silk Road Project. The ”digital Silk Road” proposal was put forward here yesterday at an international symposium on Earth observation for the Belt and Road, the official designation for Silk Road said. May 17, 2016
So what could be wrong with this; besides many of the countries having strong reason to not to let it pass through their sovereign nations?

In deluded Elijah Thiel's mind, it is a sure sign that the Chinese are building a superhighway that will allow the invading Chinese armies to conquer Europe.  As we all know, most of Europe is made up of "Israelite" nations and they will soon be going into captivity AFTER the US, Canada, England, Australia and New Zealand fall prey to the Germans.  Those damn Germans!  What will we do with them?

The ‘road’ is to go to Europe from Russia and China. As far as Europe goes, the Bible shows that the final European King of the North will be disturbed by news from the north (Russia) and the east (including China):
40 … the king of the North …43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, … 44 But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. 45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him. (Daniel 11:40,43-45)
So just where does this "silk road" end up?  According to deluded Joshua Elisha Thiel, the Chinese are building a superhighway to Armageddon.  Tel Megiddo, to be precise.   Who knew!  Really!  Shocking!
The Bible also tells of a time when the ‘kings of the sunrise/east’ will travel on land. They will end up in Armageddon:
12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”
16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon. (Revelation 16:12-16) 
The ‘kings of the east’ are to come across the Euphrates river, which will at least partially dry up according to prophecy. The new “Silk Road” is expected to head near the river Euphrates. And while I have not seen anything that shows that the Silk Road is specifically planned to go all the way to Tel Megiddo (Armageddon), there are a couple of highways in the area of Armageddon already that I have personally seen. So, it would seem that the proposed Silk Road project will help build a major road from the far east through central Asia and into the Middle East that can be used to at least get close to Armageddon, and then there are other roads that connect to it. 
The Bible is clear that troops will one day gather in Armageddon. China wants to pave roads to get near there. 
It may well be that the Silk Road project will help clear the way for Chinese and other troops to attack Europe as well as gather in Armageddon.

Anyone that takes Amos Thiel's words as truth needs their head examined.  His idiotic explanations are starting to get as weird as Dave Pack's.  One has to look long and hard to find any depiction of the new "silk road" ending in Tel Megiddo or Armageddon. Just Google the words "new silk road" and you will be hard pressed to find anything remotely stating that the route will end in Israel.  That has never stopped any Church of God false prospect from making foolish predictions though.

Of for God's sake Bob, " And while I have not seen anything that shows that the Silk Road is specifically planned to go all the way to Tel Megiddo (Armageddon), there are a couple of highways in the area of Armageddon already that I have personally seen."

There are a couple of highways everywhere in Israel Bob. They have cars, trucks and tourist buses that use them. Spotting a highway in the Valley of Megiddo is not the same as spotting, say an American Bald Eagle along the Willamette.

Tel Megiddo is in the valley of Megiddo which is called Har (Valley) Megiddo from which we get Har Megiddo or "Armageddon". I spent a month living at Tel Megiddo in the Valley of Megiddo and while it used to be a choke point between Asia and Africa, it's a pretty small place and no "all the armies of the earth" will ever be there in reality. Just like Mt Zion, which is merely a dirt bike hill by today's standards and not the "joy of all the land" , Israelis and Israel Finkelstein told me personally sitting on top of Tel Megiddo a "we exaggerate" and boy do they.

Besides with modern warfare, any "superhighway to Europe" could be rendered useless in a few moments.

I guess the little Ambassadors from Shanghai should not have given a taste of what it was like outside of Communist China.

Stupid that sponsoring of the China relations chair at Oxford University.

Why did we ever invite exchange students like the current president.

Btw when I was stationed at Bishkek central asia I was flipping channels in a hotel/brothel. Suddenly on one of the Chinese channel Dr K. s face pops up being advertised as one of the 10 most influential foreign man advisors ever in China.

At least wcg relations have done their part of "prophecy come true."

Prophecies that seem to be executed according to some kind of script readily available.

Ah as Shakespeare said. We are merely the players.


nck said...

Spot on Dennis.

I never got that Germans attacking US story. US owns all transport capability within NATO. It was never possible.

Unless of course from a 1914 perspective when there was great concern the Habsburg mexicans would reclaim California from the infant USA.

Re public post zimmerman telegram reaction and fear.

Shouldn't these splinter leaders be magnifying Gods laws and giving instruction on everyday living. For instance, Christ did give people practical advice. I don't recall Bob ever doing that.

On his deathbed, Adolf Hitler whispered to his aid the location of a hidden store of gold bullion. I have come in possession of this knowledge, but because of the cost of excavation, I am willing to share this gold with you for the small sum of $30,000. Please email me for details.

And another influential adviser in China is Dr Robert Kuhn...

Bob Thiel. Creator of another modern myths which is for the consumption of illiterate armstrongites.

"For instance, Christ did give people practical advice. I don't recall Bob ever doing that."

Sadly and of course, BT is just about the last person on earth I'd want to ask for practical advice from.

"Should we honor the fallen church members perhaps with small crosses as a symbol of our love and hope for them?"

NO, We in the CCG don't believe in crosses

"We'd like our son to play football or perhaps hockey. He's really good."

NO, He might get hurt. Jesus wouldn't want us to get hurt. Well I mean Gospel Jesus. Revelation Jesus wants to crush our guts out in the end zone, because he loves us

"Is it ok to go online on the Sabbath?"

NO, not for you. For me it's fine. I am a prophet and need to keep up on the news so I can perhaps, though not necessary, but a great possibility, perhaps, to know what to predict even though it isn't absolutely required for this to fulfill prophecy, but it could...maybe...we'll see and if it does, remember I told you so.

"There is no Feast Site in North America. May I attend LCG's Festival down the road?"

NO! You need to fly to Africa for the Feast. There are NO real Christians on the entire planet except we, in the Continuing Church of God and we must not forsake the forsake the assembling of ourselves.

"I notice you don't take advice about your podcast sermon set, peculiar mannerisms and lack of sparkle and interesting, coherent and focused presentations. Can we help you do better?

NO! I don't want YOUR advice! God has called the weak of the world like you and I and we don't have to improve on what God has made us. Some of God's best men were the worst speakers on the planet. Paul was horrible in person, short and nasty and prophets of old spoke with stammering lips. Some loons laid seige to frying pans, married prostitutes, lay on their sides for over a year and flipped over for another go at it then dug a hole in the temple and crawled through it. I'm just fine thank you.

I'll pass on asking Bob advice and counsel thanks! :)

DennisCDiehl said...

and.......I advise YOU. You don't advise me. It is the one thing I learned and agree with from Rod Meredith, Dave Pack and Gerald Flurry to have a successful Church with God's form of governing.

It amazes me that as a community, we somehow continue to make intelligent comments about ridiculous and pathetic "teachers", and what they say.

I went into a workplace yesterday in which a man with whom everyone had worked for years had "transformed" into a woman. Obviously, coworkers had difficulty in understanding or dealing with this. The thing is, the transformation is never complete, because, for one thing, the voice remains the same. How the person can even have the courage to appear in public like this, without being embarrassed, is unfathomable. I saw many parallels between that and someone "transforming" into a prophet. As with a transgender person, people surrounding the individual can still determine the truthful identity. There is also apparently a complete lack of embarrassment. But, in both cases, they are driven. I guess humans are capable of nearly anything.

One time , years ago, Bob Thiel and I attended the FOT together in China.

By coincidence , we both were driving on the CHINESE SUPER HIGHWAY. . Traffic was heavy as usual, and as I sat there at a red light, out of nowhere a bird slammed into my windshield. If that wasn't strange enough, the poor creature got its wing stuck under the windshield wiper.

Just then the light turned green and I was with a bird stuck on my windshield. Without any other apparent options, I turned on the windshield wipers to try to get rid of the bird. It actually worked! On the upswing, the bird flew off, and it slammed right onto the windshield of the car behind me. Incredibly, the car behind me was being driven by BOB THIEL!

Immediately , of course, I pulled over , as did Prophet Bob. He walked up to my car and asked me what had happened at the light. I simply had to tell the truth, "Thiel, when I saw you in my rear view mirror, and I just couldn't resist FLIPPING YOU THE BIRD!''

["flipping the bird" is slang for showing someone your middle finger!] LOL!

I knew Fabulous Bob when he was in LCG said...

Connie! Where is the submissive subservient Proverbs woman at????? This will frost the foolish false prophet butt big time that you dared to make fun of him.

Connie Schmidt said...

TO: I Knew Fabulous Bob at 1:32 PM

Looks like you better read Proverbs 31 a little bit more carefully! A Proverbs 31 women is not a weak subservient woman in the least! ...

Proverbs 31:17 -She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

Verse 25-25 Strength and honour are her clothing;

Hoss said...

In Mark Armstrong's booklet on Prophetic Accuracy, he quotes a Plain Truth story by his father about the Cuban Missile Crisis. Moral: Kennedy should have invaded Cuba because the Bible says Russia will never attack the USA.

The same edition of the Plain Truth that contained the story Mark quoted had an article by Dr Hoeh claiming China was about to invade India.

The woman in proverbs 31 is also a entrepreneurial swapper.

Proverbs 31:16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

Proverbs 31:24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

God has given the Cubans what the majority wanted. If any nation thinks some ideology will bring them heaven on earth, God lets them have it.
America had no business interfering.

Here is the Belt and Road Initiative website of China Radio International.

which includes a link to Dr. Robert Kuhn.

"For more on the Belt and Road Initiative, our reporter Guo Yan earlier talked with Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn from the Kuhn foundation who's also attending the upcoming the Belt and Road Forum."

Dude, (1:11), you might want to do some interviews of the huge Cubano expatriate population in Southern Florida. I was once a huge admirer of Che Guevara, but what Che and Fidel did was accomplished by conquest, not by any sort of democratic process.

You should check out the Rolling Stones Havana Moon DVD to see the decrepit conditions that all these years of communism have produced. Or, if it's more to your liking, Henry Louis Gates' "Black in Latin America".

I can understand Cuban families no longer wanting American organized crime turning their sisters and daughters into prostitutes, but the Ruskies were trying to turn Cuba on the US, just as Hitler tried to turn Mexico on us. The difference is, Fidel listened, and he later sacrificed Che in Bolivia. I believe that Che started from a good place, in wanting to help the exploited and down-trodden, and later became dehumanized to the point where he saw the ends as justifying some really cruel and savage means.

I'm not sure what's your point. What I'm saying is that most Cubans embrace communism out of envy and hatred of good things happening to people. Even at the cost of living in poverty and decrepit living conditions. The nation is overwhelmed by a spirit of murder. The same has happened in Zimbabwe, resulting in a third of its population fleeing the country.

Hoss said...

So far BARF (Belt And Road Forum) is so-so. Except perhaps in a figurative sense, a Highway to Armageddon is the least of the delegates' concerns.
Ignore the hype, just like COG ministerial meetings, any conference Beijing holds is headlined as being a huge success...
