Dingy Church of God False Prophet Says The Beast Power Will Soon Be Attacking Him

The false prophet from Arroyo Grande, CA is weighing in today on the ICANN internet issue that may happen this weekend.  Doomdayers are predicting all kinds of scenarios, but none are as absurd as Almost Arrested, Self-Appointed, Elisha, Elijah, Joshua, Famous Amos, Chief Overseer, Prophet, Apostle, 1/2 of Two Witnesses, Bob Thiel.  Only he is silly enough to think that this issue will have a direct impact upon his false ministry.  He thinks that Baron von Gutenberg, the Hadron Collider and the Catholic Church will join up together in a holy triumvirate to wage war on his pathetic little church.

The deliberate lies and self-deception of these false self appointed COG leaders is appalling.

You will notice that the lying false prophet now thinks he is one of the two witnesses. Thiel and Laura Weinland have a great work ahead of them!

One or more associated with the Continuing Church of God will be identifying that the European “prince” (Daniel 9:26-27) who is rising up to become a king, as not being able to truly bring peace, but instead will bring war and will be in league with the final Antichrist.
We will also be warning that the idea of a human-led utopia that the UN and others are pushing is false and that it is only through Jesus’ return and the gospel of the kingdom that such a utopian condition will happen.
This will likely trigger major media coverage.
Scrutiny of real, as well as claimed, COG literature will likely happen towards the end and various aspects of real and incorrect COG doctrines will likely be ridiculed. Media coverage would then be expected to cover more of the COG message (cf. The Gospel of the Kingdom of God) and this may be associated with the “short work” of Romans 9:28.
We in the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) are preparing for the ‘short work’ by establishing multiple websites in multiple languages, while researching and making available information on church history, doctrine, and prophecy, while also proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to the world as a witness.
Since the true Church of God is so small, it is highly likely that it getting significant media coverage will help fulfill Matthew 24:14. Some of the Philadelphia remnant will be explaining that it is Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God and not the rise of a militaristic leader that the world needs. According to Daniel 11:32 it is “the people who know their God [that] shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” Hundreds of millions, if not billions, will receive at least a partial witness. All of that will likely trigger the King of the North to take actions that lead to the end–this includes the persecutions, pre- (Daniel 7:25a, 11:29-36) and post-tribulation (Daniel 7:25b).
We Philadelphian Christians know there will be persecution and the work will be stopped and then the end will come, because of what Jesus taught:
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.  10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.  11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.  12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.  13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved.  14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:9-14).
Notice the following which this ICANN move might impact:
11 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God,
“That I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water,
But of hearing the words of the Lord.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea,
And from north to east;
They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord,
But shall not find it. (Amos 8:11-12)
The above could only happen in the 21st century if the internet was down and/or internet content related to the truth of God was no longer permitted. Governments are taking steps which look to be able to bring this about–turning over the control of ICANN possibly may affect this.
ICANN is to be an international body starting tomorrow. This will tend to make its decisions out of the jurisdiction of American courts. This will allow it to be able to censor basically at will. Instead of first amendment protections, Americans will be subject to international whims and things like ‘community standards’–standards that already have been shown to be in conflict with scripture. If ICANN is pressured to pull some or all of our proclaiming Christ’s Gospel of the Kingdom of God message off the internet, this will cause a famine of the word, and perhaps the one prophesied in Amos 8.

Didn't the COG movement have a lot more members and "influence" (however you want to define it) before the internet came along?

Maybe COG's don't need it as much as they think - if they think carefully about how to spread the gospel.

True prophets do not use the word "likely".

Perhaps he ought to secretly send a letter to the baron, introducing himself. The baron will probably think Thiel is crazy, and if he responds the response will be negative. Thiel will then be able to use that response to make it look as if he actually is a prophet. In fact, maybe he has already written to the baron. Who knows?

Baron von Gutenberg is contacted by his aides about one Bob Thiel who wishes to have a photo shoot and 5 minute conversation with him. Bob has mortgaged his house and sold a kidney to fund the bribes he gave to the aides to make the meeting happen. Additionally , Bob has purchased a piece of Steuben Crystal that will be given to the Barron.

At the meeting, Thiel tells the Barron that he will have his royal picture placed on the cover of his next internet magazine and a wonderfully favorable story on his blog about the Barron as well. He then proceeds to tell the Barron that he needs to have internet access to do all this. With a wave of the hand, (and with scrambling aides to make it so) the internet wish is granted to Thiel.

You are the winner of all true internets, sir!

Oh? You don't say.

"This will likely trigger major media coverage."

In Bob Thiel's wildest wet dreams.

"Scrutiny of real, as well as claimed, COG literature will likely happen towards the end..."

A) Because as we all know, scrutiny is a bad thing,

B) Because all COG literature that isn't written by either HWA or Bob Thiel isn't "real" COG literature,

C) And "the end" = in the next 3-to-5 years...

"and various aspects of real and incorrect COG doctrines will likely be ridiculed."

I thought the sets of "real" and "incorrect" COG doctrines were identical. This handy pro-tip will make it possible to expedite the ridicule in the most efficient manner possible.

"Media coverage would then be expected to cover more of the COG message..."

Bob is wetting himself at the very idea.

"Since the true Church of God is so small, it is highly likely that it getting significant media coverage will help fulfill Matthew 24:14."

How badly Bob wants to be famous oozes as palpaply from his writing as it does from his jeans. Too bad for Bob, his predictions will be wrong, and even if, by sheer luck, or more likely by the intentional vagueness of them, they weren't, nobody cares. World's smallest violin that Bob has never gotten, nor will he under any circumstances ever get "major media coverage."

Well, I've been studying shred guitar much of the day, courtesy of DBP. Never really got into it before, but I once attended a Satriani concert, and have been an Iron Maiden fan for years. The Beastie Boys were into a completely different genre, of course, but being occupied by music today, I'm just wondering if Bob Thiel will eventually invite the surviving Beasties to maybe do some special music at his Feast of Tabernacles.

Once HWA felt he needed to remind us that in Jesus’ day there was no radio and no electricity. He didn’t remind us that Jesus taught, “Let your light shine before others” – they had to rely on photons, not electrons.

Regardless of the decision to shift control of the Internet, the governing body is ICANN, not UCANT. There is already Internet censorship, such as the Great Firewall of China, and who knows what goes on in North Korea. In Australia, it was, and may still be, illegal to host a Holocaust Denial website. And some COG-critique websites have experienced inconveniences, possibly at the ISP level.

Decades ago, I lived in a small studio apartment, and forgot where I put my Moffatt bible. I frantically searched, and, as an ardent Armstrongite, thought for a moment “It’s gone! The famine of the word has come!”

Just as a falling away (2 Thes 2:3) has been repeated as “the great falling away”, “not a famine of bread or water but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord” (Amos 8:11) has been rendered as famine of the word.

A problem for the COG rendering of the scripture is in the word hearing. Hearing is translated from the Hebrew word Shema – which is also the title the prayer recited twice daily. Like other Hebrew words, there is more to the meaning of Shema than just hearing, but diligent listening with the intent of obedience.

So, another view of the famine is not that COGs are to be silenced from preaching the word, it’s just no one will be listening…

BB, other than "..breakin the law....breakin the law..", I never really got into Iron Maiden much. But not for musical reasons. My older brother was into them, and he had a poster of Eddie hidden in his closet, untill my mother discovered it. I saw him get beaten to a bloody pulp for a silly poster. So, just about every time I see eddie or the logo for Iron Maiden it brings back shitty memories that I wish I could forget.

I love the IRONY.

Jeez! Sorry for you guys' pain. We had a lot of that growing up in our house, too, but the worst stuff that happened to us over rock n roll was that we had our radios taken away from us. It really didn't matter, because we didn't even want them unless we could listen to the music we preferred. I took to playing my own music, finding a way to amplify my guitar through the speakers on my parents' tape recorder, or friend's stereo. Later, I found out that Russian teenagers had had to do the same things to avoid getting busted by the police. What a revelation that was!

I don't believe that parents who use pain compliance realize that if an example is set in which pain or violence is always the way in which control is obtained, then kids raised that way are going to use it on others. A kid who is constantly being abused at home is more likely to pull a knife or tire chain on his peers at school. It just sets off a bad cycle. A certain number of victims actually become predators themselves, because that was their example of a position of strength.
