Crackpot Pretending To Be A "Prophet" Looks to 2028 As Beginning Of "Sorrows"

Our resident self-appointed prophet of tomfoolery is back today with dire predictions for 2028. Did you know you are that last generation spoken of in the Bible?

In his blog entry, We are “that last generation” spoken of in the Bible he writes:

Remember, the Bible warns:

11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: 12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. (Amos 8:11-12, KJV) 
With all the limits on so-called “hate speech,” which in more and more Western lands includes quoting the Bible and/or teaching against sin, we are getting close to that time. 
Now, the final time Jesus referred to as “the beginning of sorrows” technically may not be considered officially to have begun until the first of the seven seals is opened. While it seems likely that this has occurred (as the False Prophet is undoubtedly alive now), it may not actually officially begin until the False Prophet gets more prominence (cf. Alexander G. Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. WCG booklet, 1973, p. 17)–but is not certain. 
But it makes more sense that the beginning of sorrows and that final generation began in the 21st century as opposed to the first half of the 20th century. 
That being said, the end is coming soon. 
Perhaps by 2028.

Considering that Bob Thiel has wrongly interpreted scripture to fit his doomy scenarios there is no way anyone should take this fool seriously. 

Are there prophetic reasons to believe that the USA will not last two complete presidential terms? Yes. There is a tradition attributed to the Hebrew prophet Elijah that humanity had 6,000 years to live before being replaced by God’s Kingdom. There are scriptures, writings in the Talmud, early Christian teachings that support this. Also, even certain Hindu writings support it.

Hindu's...Muslims...Catholics...Mayans...Nostradamus... Search long enough in any religious belief system and you will find something to support your whacky views.

In 2028 most of us will be watching the Olympics here in Los Angeles while Bob extends his prediction out a few more years.

Is Crackpot COG Prophet The New Indiana Jones Of The Church of God?


Just when you think the idiocy of Church of God leaders cannot get any more absurd, one of them has to step up to the plate and make a complete jackass of himself. Sadly, or fortunate for this blog, this seems to be a daily occurrence these days.

For many years now a certain delusional fool in Edmond Oklahoma has been making bold claims that he and his group was going to discover the ark of the covenant buried in Hill Tara in Ireland. That was one of the reasons they bought the Edstone estate in England to give them closer proximity to their upcoming archeological dig. Though no one in the Philadelphia Church of God was smart enough to realize that Ireland was not going to let a bunch of wacko cultists from America dig around on Hill Tara. But, this is a Church of God, after all, and some COG's always feel they are above the law and reality. Their god is always ready to work miracles.

The PCG has also been actively involved in archeological digs in Jerusalem around the Temple Mount and has actually helped discover items unique to ancient Israel's history. The reason PCG does this is only that the old Worldwide Church of God/Ambassador College did so. Imitation is the name of the game in the PCG and the broader COG movement. 

A splinter group of the PCG, The Rembrancers, out of the Philipines, did the same for short while and now they seem to have disappeared. That has left room for yet another small insignificant personality cult to step up to the plate and start sending devotees to help dig up Israel in the hope of finding something significant that will make their creature they call "christ" return.

Next to step up to the plate is our very own, the end time Elisha, Elijah, Amos, Joshua, the most amazing, superfantabulous, the dreamer of dreams, the Great Bwana to Africa and 299 Caucasians, Bob Thiel. Like I said, the idiocy of the COG continues on!

In one of his recent postings he had this:

The Bible is clear that the Ark of the Covenant is or will be in heaven:

19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail. (Revelation 11:19) 
It has been suggested that the physical ark of the covenant that the children of Israel had was patterned on one in heaven, thus it could still be on earth. If it will be found, there is a small chance that the Continuing Church of God may have some involvement with it as we are considering involvement in an archeological project in Jerusalem in the area known as Mt. Zion. On October 24, 2013, while attempting to take some photos and to video some of the remains of the Church of God on Jerusalem’s Western Hill, I was approached by a Jewish rabbi named Avraham Goldstein of the Diaspora Yeshiva who claims that the Ark of the Covenant is below that building on Mt. Zion of the Western Hill.

Another reason the self-appointed and self-ordained prophet to the church is that if the ark is found then the two witless witnesses will arise...according to Catholic prophecy, his go-to source for his biblical understanding.

I perhaps should add that certain Catholic prophecies indicate that the two witnesses (which they often consider will be Enoch and Elijah) will rise up after the Ark is found:

Bl. Dionysus of Luetzenberg…prophecies:

“After the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant, Enoch and Elias will restore the Holy Sacrament of the Altar; Because of the fact that the Ark of the Covenant will be in the possession of the two holy prophets and not in Antichrist’s hands, the Jews will recognize that Jesus is the true Messias…”

As more "proof" that the ark may be in Jerusalem under the Temple Mount, the great Bwana to Africa is also relying upon the dreams of a crazy female follower of his in New Zealand. 

If the ark of the covenant is now below the Church of God on Jerusalem’s Western Hill, known as Mt. Zion, that would have ramifications for the world as well as the Continuing Church of God. It possibly could be related to a dream by a lady named Fesilafai Fiso Leaana of New Zealand, She had a dream after going to bed on December 8, 2012 that included a comment about the Ark...

If you have time to waste and want to be entertained with some of the craziest lunacy you can hear in a sermon then check the bouncing and flouncing prophet to the Church of God in the link below. 

See: Exodus 25: Ark of the Covenant and the Mercy Seat
Exodus 25 introduces instructions for the Ark of the Covenant and Mercy Seat. What do they represent? What about the tabernacle and showbread? Might the Ark of the Covenant exist? Could the Ark be in Ethiopia? What about Hitler’s SS troops? Could Jeremiah the prophet have brought it to Ireland? Was there a fulfilled dream related to the Ark of the Covenant? Do Jews, Catholics, or Musims have traditions about finding the Ark? What might Josiah have done with it? Could the Ark of the Covenant be in Israel? Might the Ark be below Mount Moriah or Mount Zion? What about Ron Wyatt’s claims from 1982? What are some spiritual ramifications of the Ark of the Covenant? Is mercy only for Christians? Will mercy be offered to others? This is the ninth sermon in a multi-part series intended to cover the entire Book of Exodus. In this part, Dr. Thiel covers every verse in Exodus 25 and addresses many questions and concerns.

All of this useless speculation is all the Great Bwana can do because he has no relationship with the "christ" he claims to follow. Not knowing that inconvenient dude leaves Bob Thiel open to all kinds of asinine absurdities that he has to employ to take the minds of his followers off the fact he has rejected the "christ" he claims to follow. Never will you see Thiel preach a sermon about Jesus, what his salvational works accomplished, and the rest that those followers have in following Him so that they don't need to worry about this kind of crap.

LCG Wants Its Members To Strive To Be Truthful In All They Say And Do


Is the Living Church of God having problems right now with liars in their midst? The COG leadership wants all its members to learn to "speak the truth in love" just as the ministry has done for decades. Never has the church had a more loving and grace-filled leader than it had with Rod Meredith. Terry Ratzmann can confirm that.

If the LCG truly expects to "speak the truth in love" then why do they continue to ignore Christ, his salvation works, the mystery of grace, sanctification, and redemption instead of placing its faith in the law and church government?

The world doesn't need continuous sermons one after another berating them on things they have done wrong. What the world needs to see is a group of people filled with so much faith and love that they set such good examples and are so good at it that those around them are drawn to them and want to share in that journey. Sadly, the present state of the LCG does nothing but repel people.

The Value of Truth: Today, we hear a lot about “fake news” and various sources claim to provide us with the “real story” about events that are making news—yet many people are growing skeptical about what they hear from politicians and news commentators. This should surprise no one, because this is Satan’s world (2 Corinthians 4:4) and he is called in the Scriptures “a liar and the father of [lies]” (John 8:44). The Bible also foretells that the time will come when “truth is fallen in the street,” “everyone will deceive his neighbor... [and] they have taught their tongue to speak lies” (Isaiah 59:14; Jeremiah 9:5). The Bible also reveals there are serious consequences for lying (Jeremiah 9:7, 13–16) and that “all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire” (Revelation 21:8). The God of the Bible is “a God of Truth” who desires truth “in the inward parts” (Deuteronomy 32:4; Psalm 51:6). This is why Christians are commanded to “come out of this world” (2 Corinthians 6:17–18) and follow the ninth commandment (Exodus 20:16). We must also gird ourselves with the truth and learn to speak the truth in love (Ephesians 6:14; 4:15) if we want to be in the Kingdom of God (Psalm 15:1–2). Let’s strive to be truthful in all we do and say.
Have a profitable Sabbath,

Frequency Asked Questions

Why Do I Need Ordination Papers and Ministerial Licenses?

Q: Don’t I need to go to school and earn a degree in theology to become ordained?

A: No. There is a difference between a degree in theology and becoming ordained as a minister. A theology degree is an academic certification, generally requiring anywhere from 2 to 10 years of university study to obtain. Academically, a degree in theology is considered the same as a degree in philosophy and is generally required if you wanted to teach religion at a university level.

Ordination simply requires a demonstration of your commitment to the Church and is provided as an acknowledgment of the Church’s recognition of your commitment. All 50 states accept ordination to perform religious ceremonies, including weddings.

Q: Will I be authorized to perform weddings in my state?

A: Yes. Your Minister Ordination Certificate fulfills the spiritual requirement to officiate weddings in all 50 US states.

Q: I have lived a life of sin. Am I still eligible to become a minister?

A: Yes. We are all sinners and God knows that. However, before becoming a minister, you must pray for forgiveness for all your past sins.

Q: Can I start my own congregation once I become an official ordained Minister under Prophetic Ministries Tabernacle?

A: Yes, This is the reasons we have been led by the Holy Spirit to establish this program so that anyone who is called can receive the help needed gathering up a congregation.

Q: Will I be able to collect offerings from my congregation?

A: Whether you have a one page Internet ministry or a huge congregation, you will have our covering to receive offerings from your followers to help fund your ministry.

Q: In what religion will my ordination be registered?

A: Your PMT ordination and ministry licenses certifies your ministry as a tax-exempted ministry under our banner. No matter what State within the United States you establish your ministry you are covered under our non-profit corporation and protected by our nations constitution and bill of rights.

Q: Does my registration have an expiration date? Will it need to be renewed?

A: No. As long as you keep your Prophetic Family Partnership monthly pledge current your licenses is considered an active organization under our articles of incorporation and by laws.

More Craziness From PCG's Andrew Locher: "PCG is Debt Free, We Own Everything - Even God's Revelations, The Most Valuable Gift Of All!"


More craziness from Phialdpahia Church of God's Andrew Locher. Exit and Support Network has this up:

May 2, 2021

Andrew Locher gave a sermon on April 24 about “Reviving the Elijah Work.” It was just another boring sermon about how the book of Malachi (which has “code” in chapter 3) is written to the Laodicean ministry, and HWA and GF are in it, and GF who is Elisha has “revelation” and must prophesy again.

Only a few highlights and news from the sermon: (comments by L. S.)

“We had more people attending services in 1999 than we do today. … We need bigger congregations. Are we praying hard enough?” (Translation: Are we sending enough money in?)

Well, duh! Abuse your people for so long a time that they finally leave. Split up families, destroy marriages, prohibit contact with loved ones, and constantly berate members for not doing enough to support the work and they will leave (at least the smart ones).

“After the world collapses they will say “there was a prophet among them.” (Lie: There are no prophets today, in spite of GF claiming to be “that Prophet.”)

And just who would that be? Dave Pack thinks he is a prophet. Bob Thiel is adamant that he is one.  Ron Weinland says he is one. The COG has so many prophets right now that if HWA were alive he would kick their sorry asses out of the church so fast their heads would be spinning. The problem that remains is that not one single one of them has any truth to tell us or the world.

“When God says He will send his messenger in Malachi 3, that is a coded message.”

“The three messengers in Malachi are: John the Baptist, Christ and HWA.” (Lie: There is no 3rd messenger in Malachi 3.)

Herbert Armstrong was never some messenger to the church after 1,800 years. To say that invalidates the men and women over the centuries who led the church through good and bad times. The jump from Jesus to HWA and naturally to Flurry is 100% wrong.

“The work of Elisha that God said He gave the little book to, his job is to prophesy again, and give this warning to the Laodiceans.” (Lies: Elisha and Laodiceans are not even mentioned in Malachi. This is all part of GF’s so-called “revelations.”)

“We better recognize where God is working.” (God works in many places, not just in PCG.)

Every single COG out there makes this same preposterous claim. They and they alone are God's work. Pure unadulterated crap! The COG has no need for any prophet, apostle, Elisha, or Elijah in this day and age. If they actually followed that inconvenient dude that they ignore 99% of the time and actually paid attention to his words then they would know they have no need for prophets, even when people like Bob Thiel lies and say we do.

“The Key of David is no longer on two national stations. … God made that happen. But God has added close to 30 new television stations in the past few weeks.”

“The ministry is increasingly becoming graduates.” (of Armstrong College) (That way they are more submissive to “God’s government”; i. e., PCG HQs and there is less chance of them leaving.)

While I think it may be true that these graduates who make up most of PCG's ministry now will be more submissive to HQ, there is also a strong chance that these same graduates will be the rule-breakers when Flurry dies. They may form the catalyst for changes in the PCG.

“Our primary and our distinguishing blessing is God’s new revelation. That’s what distinguishes us.” (That’s what distinguishes a group as a cult.)

New revelation about a dirty stone from Oregon?  Does Jesus even care about it? NO!

Finances: 2021 is stunning. As of today, our income is 30% increase over last year (which was the best ever). Holy day offerings this spring are at their highest levels they’ve ever been–8-10% increase over last year (last year being the biggest). GF announced we received a million dollar donation and that’s on top of all this record breaking other donations. Best year ever in first tithe, best year ever in holy day offerings, best year ever in third tithe–by a long shot.” (Could that be how all those new TV stations are being paid for?)

PCG's 30% income jump is also thanks to the church not having to pay for hall rental for PCG church services. 

“We’ve had a terrific year in Canada. Income in Canada right now is 330% increase over last year. We received $1.1 million dollars so far this year in Estate income in Canada. So Mr. Heyer’s (Carlos Heyer) prayer for multiple millions–God is doing it. It’s happening in the United States; it’s happening in Canada; holy day offerings are up all over the globe as far as I can see. Mr. Heyer brings back a huge amount of money. The sacrifice of the brethren there. He brings back thousands and thousands of dollars from Central and South America.” (The poor members in those countries are giving money they don’t really have. And Locher encourages them to keep on giving!)

“The Gulfstream G450 Jet is now paid off. We own it. God’s church is debt free. We don’t own anything to anybody–except to God. We own everything–Edstone, Edmond, all the equipment, the aircraft, the vehicles. We own God’s revelation, the most valuable gift of all.” (Where did this million dollars really come from? Read April 5 letter above, “PCG’s $1 Million Offering Sounds Suspicious.”)

“The 3 Elijahs are: John the Baptist, the original Elijah and Herbert W. Armstrong.” (Lie: HWA isn’t in the book of Malachi. There are no three Elijahs.)

“Increase if we can as the offerings are so important for God’s Work.” (The words “if we can” will be ignored by the members and they will give all they can. The money is so important for GF’s ego.)

“The Laodicean approach is that it is all in vain. They are tired. But God commands us to have some joy, some excitement, to stir that Spirit.”

“Imagine what it would be like if you were totally submissive and totally dedicated to God.” (Yes, imagine the heavy burdens and the empty pocketbooks.) 

In PCG submission to God is irrelevant, submission to the church hierarchy and its leadership trump submission to God,

Gerald Flurry Doubles Down And Descends Further Into Madness


Gerald Flurry is getting even more adamant that Donald Trump will soon be returned to office.

It is practically an open secret that radical Democrats stole the 2020 United States presidential election. Polls show that over 70 percent of Republicans believe the election was stolen. A lot of Democrats also believe the election was stolen; I think many of them know it was. Even official totals show a record 74.2 million people voted for President Donald Trump—nearly 5 million more than anyone in American history! 
I do not know how it will happen, but I am convinced Donald Trump is going to regain the presidency. Bible prophecy foretells it!

Prophecy of President Trump 
To understand the election fraud in America, you must understand a passage in 2 Kings 14. The book of Kings is part of the Bible called the former prophets. The former prophets areprophets: The men who wrote them were prophets, and prophets are used by God to prophesy. These books contain history, but they are highly prophetic (see article, page 24). 
“For the Lord saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter: for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel. And the Lord said not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash” (2 Kings 14:26-27). 
For many reasons that I have explained in a series of articles in this magazine, this is a specific prophecy about this end time. This is an important truth you need to prove for yourself. 

Verse 26 shows there are people working to blot out the name of Israel—and many of them are within America! This alone helps us to understand the seriousness of America’s affliction today.

But God says in verse 27 that He “saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.” Today, Donald Trump is fulfilling the role of an end-time “Jeroboam.” As we will see, in Amos 7—another, more explicitly end-time prophecy—Jeroboam is the name of the leader of Israel. That prophecy connects with this passage in Kings, which shows how God actually used this leader to save America, temporarily, from its enemies. This happened during Donald Trump’s first term as president. 

So why all of this fascination with Trump? It's a double-edged sword. They like Trump for standing up to their "values" and they also look at Trump as a future persecutor. Flurry believes that Trump will at some point in the future persecute the Philadelphia Church of God and kick them out of the country. Trump will also persecute Gerald specifically. Remember, COG prophets are always without honor in their own country.

Flurry gets even crazier with the following:

But 2 Kings 14:28 gives us insight into what is happening during the pause in Trump’s rule, between his first and second term.

Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon of the Old Testament says the word “warred” means “to fight, to war.” The Theological Word Study of the Old Testament says that warring occurs 171 times, pertaining to God’s role in Israel’s wars. That would apply in this case, because God has commissioned Mr. Trump to save Israel. Consider how different this word is from “saved” in verse 26. Mr. Trump did not literally have to war to save Israel during his first term—though he did have to fight to expose all the fraudulent investigations, treasonous acts and bogus impeachments. There are different ways you can war, but the indication is that regaining office may take considerable work. Donald Trump will have to fight for it. It doesn’t have to be military action, but it certainly could
President Trump could also lead some states to secede from the union. That would lead to some kind of warfare.

Verse 28 of 2 Kings 14 strongly indicates that Mr. Trump recovers his presidency by some kind of warring—not voting.

It seems certain to me that this will happen before the next presidential election in 2024—unless there would be some kind of war and voting combined. But 2 Kings 14:28 does not even hint of an election. 
If God says President Trump is going to “recover” something, then it will be recovered. And what could he recover, if not the stolen election?

There is going to be some kind of war to recover something. If God says President Trump is going to “recover” something, then it will be recovered. Amos 7 also shows that war will be successful. And what could he recover, if not the stolen election?

This all must happen because of a miracle from God! And that should be obvious to everybody when it happens—if they were honest.

There is a long list of more things Flurry talks about including how awful President Obama was, and then he ends with this: 

Right now, the big question revolves around how Donald Trump will regain power. America is in the throes of an Antiochus administration that is rapidly driving the nation toward radicalism, socialism, amorality, class division and race war! As I wrote in our April issue regarding 2 Kings 14:26, America’s affliction is very bitter, and the nation has no helper! 
But God’s prophecies are sure. Jeroboam’s clash with God’s Church is about as clear as any prophecy in the Bible. This has not happened yet; therefore, President Trump must regain office—one way or another. We must have faith. God is always testing our faith in certain ways; we would never grow if He didn’t. We must reach the point where we totally believe God! If we are shown to be wrong, then we will change and believe God! But everything God is showing us now makes it look like, despite appearances to the contrary, we are right on target. 
The bigger issue is what will happen after Trump regains power. He will put a stop to the immediate destruction. But this nation is very far from God! And Jeroboam and everyone else need a powerful warning and a call to repentance. That is what God’s Church is here to provide, as loudly and clearly as we can. If the American people do not heed God’s warning message, this will be followed by the most terrifying time you can imagine! But that severe correction is what it will take for God to reach people, and humble them, in preparation for the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Kingdom on Earth!

Is Sheldon Monson Losing Members After Contracting COVID?

But really, I am not...


Things don't look too pretty for Sheldon Monson's Church of God Assembly right now. A source just revealed that Monson went to the hospital recently for pneumonia. It then emerged that it was most likely COVID.

Apparently, those LCG members who jumped ship when he split from LCG over its COVID precautions are not too enthralled with him. Some have left for other COG groups. 

Maybe that is the reason he has this up as the lead on his web site:

Losing members means less money and what would a good Church of God splinter leader do without money?

Another sermon Monson has up is about the proverbial topic of church government. Nothing about Jesus or what his salvational works accomplished but a lot of crap on how important it is for members to know they must follow government, from the top down.

April 10, 2021
Sabbath Services 
All right I want to get into the Sermon here today. I want to cover a topic that might not be popular with some, but this isn't a popularity contest. I feel we need to speak the truth no matter what, regardless of the outcome and so I am going to cover a topic that's not been covered by some for a while. But it's a very important topic and several people have discussed this topic with me in recent months. And we live in a time in human history at the end of the age where there is very little respect for authority (Including in the COG movement!). And today I want to talk about government and the Church and what God's form of Church government is and I think that this is something that will be a review for most of you, but for others it may seem a bit self-serving that I'm the guy giving the message on government and that's OK. You can think what you want, we're going to cover what the Bible says.

Nothing like starting a sermon off by being all pissy over people's perceived reactions. Stupid members can never do anything right! What's the point of attending church anymore if all you are going to get is one browbeating after another?

Another source said that none of these leaving Monson's group went to Bob Thiel. Had to laugh at that one.

Any more info available?
