COG False Prophet Twists World Refugee Day Into An Attack Against Other COG's And Christians

Syrian refugee camp

It has always fascinated me as to how COG leaders can take everything that happens in the world and twist it into something completely out of context and then use it as a weapon to smear other COG members and Christians in general.  99% of the time these theological buffoons have self-appointed themselves to their positions.

Our favorite deluded false prophet and godless wonder-kid has posted about World Refugee day that draws attention to the millions of people currently refugees from their own countries and home because of war, famines, and despotic leaders.
In marking World Refugee Day Saturday (2015), the United Nations refugee agency [UNHCR] said a record number of people, 59.5 million people compared to the 51.2 million from the previous year, have been forced to flee their homes in search of safety. 
“We are witnessing a paradigm change, an unchecked slide into an era in which the scale of global forced displacement as well as the response required in now clearly dwarfing anything seen before,” U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres said of the new report. 
The U.N. said one in every 122 humans is now either a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum.
So how can this be twisted into something used as a weapon to smear other COG members and Christians?

This is how Almost-arrested Elisha, Elijah, Amos, Habakkuk, Bob Thiel does it:
However, before then, there will come another time when all real Christians will be subject to intense persecution.
But this will come in stages. First, mainly the faithful Philadelphia Christians will be affected: 
Of course, the only "real" Christians out there are those poor deluded fools in his personality cult.
25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. (Daniel 7:25a)
33 And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering. 34 Now when they fall, they shall be aided with a little help; but many shall join with them by intrigue. 35 And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time. (Dan 11:33-35)
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. (Rev 12:13)

The Philadelphia Christians who survive will then be protected:
The Philadelphia Christians flee to become refugees in a place in the wilderness: 
Some believe that this place in the wilderness will be in or near Petra in Jordan 
Prophecy scholars tend to recognize that the expression “time and times and half a time” equates to 3 1/2 years. The fleeing to the wilderness happens just after the Philadelphians have successfully preached the Gospel of the Kingdom to the world as a witness (Matthew 24:14) and just prior to the start of the Great Tribulation(Matthew 24:15-21). 
For some reason, apostate Thiel thinks he is doing a "work" that is preaching the gospel to the world. NO witness is being done in the United States.  World leaders know nothing about the self-appointed buffoon.  No global reaching work in happening.  Nada...just crooked bookcases, 1980's curtains, thumping bibles, nonsensical sermons on scores of subjects that never discuss Jesus, grace, justification, or mercy.

He next writes this:
Jesus said to watch and pray to be accounted worthy to escape, indicating that not all Christians would be accounted worthy:
One guess as to who the worthy Philadelphia Christians are.  It is not anyone in Living Church of God or Restored Church of God or Philadelphia Church of God and most certainly would not be anyone in Grace Communion International!  Only those in the improperly named "continuing" Church of God are true Philadelphians.  

As if any of his followers in Africa care about this church era malarkey.   

According to the lying fool, no one in the other COG's has any chance because none of them are Philadelphians.
So, what about the rest of the Christians in those days?
The Bible shows that they will be subject to death and persecution:
17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 12:17)
25…Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time. (Daniel 7:25b) 
While he and the rest of his little flock are in Petra, the rest of the COG's will be suffering intense persecution because they refused to "gather together" with apostate Bob and crew.
So, this second period of persecution for those who do not flee to the wilderness lasts 3 1/2 years as well. Those subject to the persecution from the Beast power are mainly Laodicean, Sardisian, and Thyatiran Christians (though some of the Thyatiran remnant may be protected per Revelation 2:22-24). Those Christians would be those that failed to heed various parts of the Bible as they should and will ignore the warnings in Zephaniah 2:1-3 to gather together prior to the time to flee.
The apostate one has said over and other that those in the other COG's have the wrong view on prophecy and understanding.  Therefore they will not know when the time to flee happens.  Only apostate Bob knows this.  All of the other COG's will not be ready and will certainly have not joined forces with Bob.  This has been a bitter pill for Thiel to swallow, just as it has been for Dave Pack. Everyone in the other COG's know these men to be false prophets and liars.

While we Christians go through our day to day lives, the Bible is clear that those who live long enough are going to be subject to intense persecution and becoming refugees.
Apostate Bob is suffering intense persecution now, or so he claims, and it is only going to get worse. 

So if you do consider the plight of the millions of refugees on the Earth, you may also consider that if you are truly a Christian, that you will be subject to intense persecution and even being a refugee yourself.
Won't you join apostates Thiel as a refugee in Petra?  Doesn't that sound fun?  Just imagine 3 1/3 years listening to him pontificate as his whiny voice wafts around the valley sides.  That would be the ultimate persecution!

Bob Thiel IS indeed doing a powerful work and reaching into each and most of the countries of the world......................................judging from the flag counter on the "banned" homepage.

Today, in normal life, I NEVER encounter any cog work anymore (except for the occassional newspaper article about wienland during the financial crisis explaining the rise of these phenomenons in times of trouble. And of course DCP's excessive advertising retargetting, whenever I am asked a question on banned and search on google.

Probably most people who read this entry will shake their heads and say to themselves, "Sheesh! These prophets and apostles seem to think that nobody sees that all they do is make up a bunch of aggrandizing shit about themselves!"

And, those commenters would be right! HWA did totally the same thing. The only thing is, it looked more credible and appropriate when HWA did it, because he actually stood out on the radio, and his "work" was more sizeable on the scale of that era. So, it appeared that prospective members were joining a successful bandwagon. Today, even the largest of the ACOG splinters appear ridiculous in their evangelizing campaigns. They are barely noticeable. By the time you get down to Bob Thiel, you have an annoying little gnat.

The main disturbing aspect to this is that after all that so many of the Africans have already suffered, it would be a shame if they had to suffer further as a result of any persecution Bob Thiel's flapping gums brought upon them.

Christians are being persecuted all over the world, but it’s still sunny for Bob’s Philadelphians: all he suffers is the butthurt he gets from critiques at Banned.
I’m surprised Bob didn’t mention his African congregations, as he wrote at a few weeks ago that some members in Uganda were in jail, apparently being persecuted for Sabbath keeping.

I wouldnt even call it a personality cult... Thiel doesn't really have much of a personality. It's a vanity cult. :)

"1980's curtains"

Ha, how true. I honestly think he is living in a old Motel 6 somewhere off the highway. Behind the 1980's curtain lies a old pool in need of draining and algae removal....

Define Persecution Complex

"The persecution complex definition is simple, yet far reaching. It is the idea a person has where they believe that they are being persecuted against. It could be for something as simple as the color of their hair or an attribute they have. A common aspect of this is Christian persecution complex, which is the belief that a person is being persecuted due to their religious convictions. Now it is important to realize that the actions they perceive as persecution may be real or they could be imagined in the person’s mind. They may even blow a situation out of proportion and believe it to be persecution when in fact, it was something very innocuous. For instance, something as simple as not having a prayer said before a meal may be construed in someone’s mind as religious persecution.

Persecution complex is a deep reaching psychological condition. It has many different psychological factors, from learned helplessness to victim mentality and further. Due to the fact that there are so many different psychological factors at play, it can be hard for a person to recognize this within themselves.

...While the symptoms a person may deal with when it comes to a persecution complex will vary depending on the person or the situation, there are a few symptoms almost all of these people share. These include:

A constant feeling that the person is being spied on or watched by someone else, even when they are alone

They feel that people are continually harsh with them and often blame it on whatever reason they feel they are being persecuted over, such as religion

Having a mistrust for others in the world
They have a fear of being caught by the person or group they feel is persecuting them

The thing to keep in mind with this is that the symptoms can vary in intensity from one person to the next. One person may deal with these symptoms in a mild way while another person can become like a conspiracy theorist who is afraid to leave their home for fear that they will be found.

This is a person who is always quick to react in self defense when something is said. They may take the smallest comment, even one that was not intended as an insult as a personal affront and retaliate against another. It is easy to see the connection with the personality complex because these people often feel that they are being persecuted which allows them to be defensive in their life."

Does he not already claim that he and his work are already under persecution? So why is he not in Petra? Is he waiting to hear that special sound that Dave Pack claims is coming, that will let everyone know that the time to go has come?

I watched one of his YouTube videos yesterday expecting some answer to the title, and found that there was no answer, just a reading from various articles that he most likely obtained from the Internet.

I really have to wag my head when these guys make out that they are the only ones that have access to the 'real' news, only to find that I read/saw that already. Makes one wonder 'What's the point?' I can do that. I can set up a camera and read various articles and quote a scripture or two. In fact, just about all of us can do this.

Finally, if he is a prophet as he says, then why not heal that child we hear in the background. Did not the prophets have the power to heal, or cast out demons?

MY COMMENT - What's the point? To create an income stream from the dumb tithe slave sheep who don't know any better so "doubly blessed almost arrested for sabbath keeping" bitter Bob Thiel doesn't have to do any real work in the real world to support himself. To give an outwardly appearance that he is performing a "work of witnessing and warning" for the dumb tithe slaves to support.....(Drum Roll please) AND THEN THE END SHALL COME (Matt 24:14 even though HWA said he completed the work).

I think it's a type-o. Christians under Bob's leadership n nit picking law keeping would suffer perspiration not persecution

Do these cults have a high turn over rate ? Do these cults actually grow in membership ? Who in their right mind would subject themselves to these heretical cults ?

Hoss said...

Personality cult, vanity cult - for Bob, I think it's his hobby.

His hobby horses of prophecy and church history work to his advantage, as his errors are less apparent. Outside his niche, Bob's lack of understanding of the straight Biblical narrative sticks out like his backdrops.
