It is no different today in 2019 as we witness the lies of Bob Thiel, James Malm and others. Not a single one of these men are speaking on behalf of God. No amount of zealotry or innumerable dreams can make these two legitimate disciples of the god they claim to follow.
James Malm believes his so-called ministry is such a dynamic strong ministry that when the two witless witnesses arrive they will take over his ministry expounding upon his teachings.
When these two creatures take over his ministry it will allow him to go to his selected "place of safety" where he and a few hundred of his followers will revel in extreme zealotry. He also expects tens of thousands of people to enthusiastically embrace his zealotry. Malm has no intention of going to Petra where the deceived fool Bob Thiel will be settling in along with Dave Pack and Gerald Flurry. Malm's god has told him that the new place of safety is Pella:
According to the Chief Pharisee and certified lair, his god is seriously testing the COG at this time and you had better not reject them or you will not be going to Pella! God is sorely testing the church right now to deliberately weed out the unzealous.
That is unless his god selects him to be one of the two witless witnesses. Can you imagine the hell Malm would bring to the world with his nastiness and pharisaical piety! Most of humanity would probably welcome annihilation after listening to his preaching.
