Right on cue, our favorite self-appointed prophet suffered major butthurt today with the post about COG leaders lying. God's most highly favored prophet just CANNOT be a liar, can he....?
Never has the Church of God seen a more insecure prophet in its midst as we have with Bobiniah Thiel. He is in a constant state of butthurt due to all of the rejection and criticism thrown his way. That rejection runs so deep through the U.S and Canada that he can't attract more than 99 followers. Worst of all, the Living Church of God as a church and its membership have wholeheartedly rejected him. When his spiritual daddy, Rod Meredith, turned his back on Bobiniah as a prophet, it was more than he could take. The mental breakdown started with this rejection and has weighed heavily on him ever since.
Satan does not want people to be in the Kingdom of God.
He wants to dissuade you are others from doing so.
How does he do that?
Through lies and false witnesses.
While you might think you are immune to Satan, remember that the New Testament teaches:
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, (1 Peter 5:7-9)
Satan does not want you to truly have faith in God or His word.
Satan has to be the most powerful creature in Armstrongism. That dude gets blamed for more stuff than anyone else! Instead of looking inwardly at themselves, their actions and words, COG leaders drag out Satan to cover for their asinine stupidity that they create themselves. Satan is more powerful because they deny the one they are supposed to be following and prostrate themselves at the feet of Moses.
If you think Bobiniah's butthurt is only surface deep, take a look at this:
Some of Satan’s allies at Banned by HWA website continue to post lies about those of us in Continuing Church of God (CCOG) as well as other COGs.
So Bobiniah, you acknowledge that Meredith was right to lie about Leona Mcnair, that Dave Pack is not a liar, that Ron Weinland is not a liar and most assuredly Gerald Flurry is not a liar. Everything that people post about these guys is just a satanic conspiracy to stop people from joining up with their churches. Thanks for clarifying that.
That is consistent with Satan’s hope as he is called the “accuser of the brethren” which he does do day and night (Revelation 12:10), so it is no great surprise if his lying human assistants spread lies regularly.
If you are not part of a COG (Church of God), Satan hopes you will dismiss the true Christian faith as a false cult–this is something he and his followers have done throughout history.
The TRUE Christian faith is NOT found in the improperly named "continuing" Church of God. That is a fact. While there may certainly be a few sincere followers of Christ in Africa, they are being blinded by the lies and false teachings of Bobiniah himself. Satan isn't doing it, Bobiniah is!
Then to cover all bases, Bobiniah takes a direct slam against all who believe the Bible and understand it so well that they can easily denounce him as a fraud and a false prophet.
Jesus, Himself, said that people who claimed to believe the Bible often denounced God’s prophets:
11 Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)
The butthurt is deep today!
Notice the following evil that was posted at Banned by HWA today:
Bob Thiel has lied to us from day one about God speaking to him in dreams, that he is the only COG doing the work, that he is a prophet, that he is Elisha, Elijah, Zephaniah, Joshua, and many other appropriated personalities (about the only thing left to call himself is Legion). Has Bob ever apologized and will he EVErRapologize for lying to us?
Now the above is false witness from Gary Leonard (the webmaster of the above site and the one who posted that).
Satan hopes you will believe lies.
One of the Ten Commandments is, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor” (Exodus 20:16).
Yet once again, Gary Leonard has borne false witness.
There is no point in me, Bob Thiel, apologizing for telling the truth.
Gary Leonard and those who believe his lies need to repent.
Satan hopes that YOU will be lazy and not believe. Satan hopes YOU will not take the time to check out the truth on this. Satan does NOT want YOU to accept that God really has been providing and fulfilling dreams in the 21st century. Satan wants YOU, like most Christians these days, to be Laodicean and not see if these things are so?
Satan has no part in anyone denying Bobiniah as fulfilling any dream that he or other delusional people have dreamed up. Any rational thinking person can see that Bobiniah is not of God. Confirmation bias is a strong tool of deception in the Church of God and has been used effectively by splinter group leaders for decades. Bobiniah is no exception to this.
Bobiniah just cannot get over the fact that I and most others here DO NOT accept him as a prophet. He then attacks those COG members who don't believe in him by trotting out another scripture as proof of their deception.
Well, although all real Christians claim to believe the Bible, some do not take it all seriously.
Like, for example, the following:
6 “Hear now My words:If there is a prophet among you,I, the Lord, make Myself known to him in a vision;I speak to him in a dream. (Numbers 12:6)
Notice that the above says that God will speak to His prophet in a dream.
People may say they believe it, but most Christians do not believe that God has done that with anyone in the 21st century.
Someone, please tell me how this has anything to do with Bobiniah? The New Testament and the words of Jesus make it clear that no more prophets are necessary for the church. People are to place their faith and trust in Jesus and not some self-appointed prophet waving his hands in Grove Beach, CA.
Those who believe the false assertions at the Banned by HWA website are among those that love and practices lies.
Those who do so should repent.
Anyway, what Satan continues to hope is that you will believe lies, not believe that God actually has sent fulfilled dreams to those in the Continuing Church of God, and that you will not look into the details to see if it is so–like the Bereans of old did in Acts 17:10-11.
If you are not part of CCOG, Satan wants you to stay away from it.
He does not want you to be dedicated or noble enough to see if what is written here (and in the related links) is really true.
Can you accept the truth or do you prefer the lying assertions from sites like Banned by HWA?
The truth of the matter, Bobiniah, is that GOD wants NO ONE to be a part of the improperly named "continuing" Church of God. Satan is not keeping anyone away. God is!
I have no qualms about continuing to expose th lies and falsehoods coming out of the improperly named "continuing" Church of God or any of the other splinter cults out there. Continue to say stupid things and we will hold you and them accountable.
