What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

False Prophet Ronald Weinland spoke from Las Vegas today.  No lay members were in attendance, as this is the weekend of the evangelists and senior elders meeting.  If he had allowed it, I imagine that a few lay members would have traveled hundreds of miles to see their spiritual idols.  Based on the description, these are the people who would be in Las Vegas for the conference:

  • Ron and Laura Weinland, Cincinnati area
  • Johnny Harrell, central Georgia
  • Wayne and Chris Matthews, Australia
  • Terry Wrozek, Jackson, Michigan
  • Steve Dalrymple, Cincinnati area
  • Jim Jamieson, Boise
  • Jimmie Carlisle, Dallas
  • William Milne, UK
  • possibly Willem Henderson, Netherlands

Looking over this list, it makes you wonder why they didn’t have the conference in Cincinnati since three of them live in the area and another is close enough to Cincinnati to drive down in a day.  Jim Jamieson is closest to Las Vegas, but it’s still over 600 miles.  While I’ve heard that air fares to Las Vegas may be cheaper, I wonder if that offsets the costs of having everyone travel and the hotel rooms. Ron and Laura should have enough room in their mansion on the golf course to put up several from out of town and save on hotel bills.  I’ve heard an unconfirmed rumor that Ron has had meetings at Las Vegas in the past and likes to gamble.  That doesn’t fit in with my impression of Weinland so without confirmation I’ll consider it to be false — but it makes you go “hmmmm”.   And then Ron has a risk-making streak in him as shown by the big gamble with his prophetic timelines.

Ron did a bit of reminiscing.  After he broke his Toledo congregation away from UCG back in 1997, there was not enough time for them to organize their own feast site that year.  According to Ron, at that time he felt that it would have been presumptuous to have set up a feast site. But he changed his mind after attending Ron Dart’s feast site in Kissimmee, Florida and the Global site in Clearwater.  In 1998 some of his members organized a feast site at Niagara Falls.

According to Ron, the regional pastors in WCG knew of the coming apostasy a couple of years before Tkach made it official and they planned to resign in mass when it happened.  But after Tkach’s December 17, 1994 apostasy in Atlanta, many of them waited until UCG formed to assure a steady paycheck before resigning.  And UCG was too slow getting off the ground, with the 1995 conference in Indianapolis not being scheduled until a smaller group scheduled one in Houston.

Ron and Laura’s globetrotting began in November of 1999 with a European trip paid for with some of Steve Dalrymple’s frequent flier miles.  They became friends when Ron was assigned by WCG to Cincinnati in the mid-’80’s.

Ron is still tweaking the timeline chart on his website.  But it’s still has errors in it, the larger print implies that Pentecost of 2012 is part of the 1260 days and the 980 days when it is not part of those timelines but immediately follows.  Also that Pentecost of 1998 was on May 30th when it was actually on May 31st.

PKG is having a church-wide fast on Feb 6 in honor of the end of the first of the shortened half-times.  It seems that the trumpets will not strike before mid-March as he will be in Columbia, MO on March 13th.  But still no indication when my speedy death from the inside will happen.

2009 God's False WitnessBelow we have some interesting quotes from “2008 – God’s Final Witness”:

  • Page 2: Final end-time events that will lead into the great tribulation, at the opening of the Seventh Seal, have already begun.
  • Page 4: This final stage is referred to as the great tribulation which is prophesied to last for a final three and one-half years.
  • Page 10: End-time events will become far more devastating, growing in frequency, until we are finally thrown into the midst of the water when the final three and one-half years of great tribulation strike.
  • Page 16: The other witness will be revealed to the world during the time of the great tribulationwithin the final three and one-half years of man’s era.
  • Page 60: This country is the focus for the beginning of great tribulation which will strike the earth in the final three and one-half years that precede the return of Jesus Christ, when He takes over the rule of all government on the earth.
  • Page 64: The Seventh Trumpet sounds on the final day of the last three and one-half years of great tribulation,
  • Page 79: The very last day of man’s self-rule—the last day of the three and one-half years of great tribulation—is marked by powerful events.
  • Page 86: This will serve as one final witness to the Church before the devastation of the great tribulation strikes the whole world at the opening of the Seventh Seal.
  • Page 96: All Seven Thunders will increase in power and recognition over the next two years (from the date of the first printing of this book) and on into the final three and one-half years of great tribulation.
  • Page 107: However, every minister who was scattered, who fails to repent early on and return to God (with me, as God’s minister, teaching them) will die during the final three and one-half years of great tribulation.
  • Page 115: When Jesus Christ opens the Seventh Seal of Revelation, God declares that the final three and one-half years of great tribulation will begin, and man’s self-rule will be brought to an end.
  • Page 129: Therefore, on this last day of the three and one-half years of great tribulation,
  • Page 174: Not only that, God also will move the spirit world to facilitate in limiting the great tribulation to exactly three and one-half years.

False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s book is quite clear, the Great Tribulation begins with the opening of the Seventh Seal, and lasts for three and one-half years.  The quotes on pages 16 and 60 are a bit ambiguous and could be interpreted to allow a shorter length, so I expect if Ron addresses this he will parse those quotes and ignore all the others which are clear as to the length.  Weinland acknowledges that the tribulation is not yet great, and during his Last Great Day sermon changed the duration of the Great Tribulation from the 1260 days of the 3 and 1/2 prophetic years to only be 980 days, and actually less because we’re down to 941 days remaining until the non-return of Jesus Christ. Before the first timeline, he had changed the timing already — the Great Tribulation was not to start with the first opening of the Seventh Seal on March 18, 2008 but rather after “30 days of silence” at the first blowing of the First Trumpet on April 17, 2008.

God progressively reveals, blah, blah, blah.  Except on page 29 of God’s Final Witness, we read:

This book does not originate from the prejudices of man; its message comes from the inspiration and revelation of God Almighty given to one of His prophets. given to one of His prophets.

So it would seem that God inspired Ron to lie about when the 1260 days started, so he had to come up with a second timeline.  And he inspired him to lie about the duration of the Great Tribulation, so he explained it away as being a shorter time.  What else did God inspire Ron to lie about?

Ron Dangles a Carrot

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

False Prophet Ronald Weinland spoke from a hot and cold meeting room in the Detroit area today.  Members who are part of the sealing are still suffering medical woes, even as times reset.  Elder Don Edwards is facing bypass surgery, and long-time member Neva Williams who is related to quite a number of other PKG members is possibly facing spinal surgery.  Some of the sealed will die before Christ doesn’t return on Pentecost of 2012, all of them will die with Christ still having failed to make his UFO-like appearance in the skies over Jerusalem.

Next week Ron will be having a meeting with his evangelists and senior elders in Las Vegas.  Perhaps Ron will take a break from gambling on his prophecies by gambling on the blackjack tables during the breaks between giving deputy sheriff lessons to his flunkies. Unconfirmed reports are that he enjoys this.  Ron, unless your card-counting skills are better than your day-counting skills, better not try it.

Today’s was the first of what Ron threatens to be a long sermon series titled “Our Journey Carrotof Faith”.  Ron promised a few carrots along the way.  Then Ron proceeded to speak about various preparations that have been made which included Swiss bank accounts for a time, storing gold and silver, and setting aside food and medical supplies. The aspect of faith is that these are not “just in case” preparation, but with a firm expectation that they’ll soon be necessary.

The constant lack of fulfilled prophecies has been trying on some of the new members, a few of whom have left.  On the other hand, those in “the scattering” who are “sealed” are well used to this sort of thing, with the end always being 5 to 10 years off and each new car expected to be the last one.  Back in 1977, Ron’s father-in-law reacted to the news that Audra on the way, not with joy at becoming a grandparent but rather, with concern about bringing a child into the world in the end time.

Ron must have recently acquired the E-Sword program.  E-Sword is a nifty set of software and databases which include various translations of the bible, as well as commentaries and concordances.  It include concordances which cross-reference to the original Hebrew and Greek words.  During his Last Great Day sermon, he proof-texted his revision of “time” using Hebrew words.  Today he went Greek on a word γίνομαι meaning (depending on the context) “come to pass”.  Those wanting to follow along in future sermons as the false prophet cherry picks interpretations may want to download the free software which includes the King James Version with Strong’s Numbers and Stong’s Dictionary, and add on the King James Concordance available as a downloadable add-on.

According to Ron, the earliest the 5th Trumpet will blow is June 27 next year (“time” plus one day) and the latest is August 21, 2011 (“times” and a half plus one day).  The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th trumpets could all blow on one day.  However, he did not clarify the timeframe that my quick death from the inside will happen according to the curse he declared against me 44 weeks ago.

False Prophet Math

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

False Prophet Ronald Weinland graduated in 1975 from unaccredited Ambassador College with a major in theology and a minor in math. I expect that his math courses were taken at the accredited institutions he attended prior to Ambassador. Ron puts his math minor to use in justifying his false prophecies.

This post discusses his new version of his 50th untruth, but first bear with me through a short math lesson. Any natural number can be computed as a product or multiplication of two or more natural numbers.  A special case are prime numbers: a prime number is a product only of 1 and itself.  The first few primes are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, and 13.  Non-prime numbers can be expressed as a product of two or more prime numbers.

The number 1260 can be computed as a product of primes: 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 7.  The number 280 is a product of primes: 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 7.  Ron’s significant number 280 (sign of judgment and now mercy) has one more “2” as a factor and therefore does not divide evenly into 1260.  The result of the division of “time” into 1260 is 4.5 — or time, time, times, and half-a-time.  Ron throws away the first time as “judgment mercy” and is left with (ta-da) time, times, and half-a-time.

Ron has no biblical basis for his claim that a “time” is 280 days instead of 360 days, despite the convoluted explanation he gave last Saturday.  All he has is his disproven claim to be a prophet eligible to reveal new “truth”.  Daniel 12:7 mentions “time, times, and half-a-time” described by a man clothed in linen.  Which can’t be Ron, since he after all he is wearing sackcloth, right?

Daniel 12 follows up in verse 12 with “Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” right after verse 11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.”  So in Daniel, the 1335th day occurs after the 1260th day, but in Weinlandism the 1335th day occurs before the 1260th day since Weinland’s count is backwords.

All rather confusing.  But PKG members have it easy, all they have to do is to remember the latest “truth” or re-explanation of the “truth” as given by their spiritual idol, the false prophet Ronald Weinland.

Here are the dates associated with Weinland’s second version of the second timeline:

  • December 14, 2008: The first trumpet blew (silently).  Ron and Laura “began their jobs” while in Jerusalem after a jaunt to Cairo to tour the pyramids.
  • September 19, 2009: Feast of Trumpets: The end of the zeroeth “time” or 280 days into the not-so-Great Tribulation.  With 280 days being a sign of judgment, and Ron being too sick to speak that day.
  • February 6, 2010: Half-a-time or 140 days after Trumpets, 2009.  The PKG members are to fast, but only for one day.  Ron promises another barn-burner borer of a sermon this day.
  • June 26, 2011: Time.  Earliest that the European beast power will become active.
  • November 13, 2011: Time and half-a-time
  • April 2, 2011: Times
  • August 20, 2011: Times and half-a-time.  Latest that the European beast power becomes active.
  • January 7, 2012: Time and Times.  The 200-million-man Asiatic horde army might not become active until this time.  Yet somehow they will be able to assemble, arm, and mobilize this army of unprecedented size in less than 140 days and have it in place in the valley of Megiddo for the last few days of the Great Tribulation
  • May 22, 2012 at sunrise in Jerusalem: Ron and Laura are killed in the streets of Jerusalem
  • May 26, 2012: End of Time, Times, and Half-a-Time: Day before Pentecost.  Jesus Christ to return at sundown which ends this day and begins Pentecost.
  • May 27, 2012: Ron and Laura having been resurrected from the streets of Jerusalem begin their new jobs as rulers in God’s Kingdom.

Here’s yet another timeline from Weinland, as posted on his blog.  Ron’s upcoming trips are:

Oct. 24 Detroit, MI
Oct. 31 Las Vegas, NV
Nov. 7 Cincinnati, OH (with special guests, Wayne & Chris Matthews)
Nov. 14 Bowling Green, KY
Nov. 21 The NETHERLANDS
Nov. 29 London, UNITED KINGDOM
Dec. 5 Erie, PA
Dec. 12 Detroit, MI
Dec. 19 Georgia
Dec. 26 Orlando, FL
Jan. 2 Portland, OR
Jan. 9 Spokane, WA
Jan. 16 Los Angeles, CA
Jan. 23 Dallas, TX
Jan. 30 Minneapolis, MN
Feb. 2 Cincinnati, OH
Feb. 9 Detroit, MI

Careful observers will note that certain of these dates are not Saturdays: Nov. 29 is a Sunday, and Feb. 2 and Feb 9 are both Tuesdays. Are these high days? No. Is Ron changing sabbath observance to other days of the week? I doubt it. Rather, I expect it’s just another exhibit of of False Prophet Math and Calendar Reading skills. Note: the February dates were corrected on Oct 22, but the Nov 29 date remains unchanged.

Since Ron expects to be able to travel well into February, the Great Tribulation is delayed for at least half-a-time even in his shortened timeline.  If the demise of the US is to occur by June and Ron will be able to travel into Feb., then the first 5 trumpets will have to blow quickly beginning in mid-February.  Wait a minute — the demise of the US was to be no later than last June, according to the last page of “2008 — God’s Final Witness”.  Just as my death from the inside was supposed to be quick, according to the death curse Ron called on me 43 weeks ago.

Yet More Prophetic Days to Worry About

Monday, October 19th, 2009

I’ve posted several times about James Malm.  James put out a prophetic timeline involving the 1335 day interval between Trumpets of 2008 and Pentecost of 2012 well before Ron did.  But unlike Ron, he quickly within a day or so of Trumpets acknowledged that it wasn’t the one.  Then three months ago I posted about James Malm’s latest prophetic speculation which has today, Oct 19, as a significant day.  I emailed James this weekend to ask: (more…)

The Weinland Gap Closes

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

False Prophet Ronald Weinland and False Prophetess Laura Weinland overcame the adversity of crashing airline computers and returned to Cincinnati to deliver his latest sermon.

According to Ron, his head was swimming last Saturday in Rye when he gave his letdown of a highly anticipated and oft-advertised Last Great Day sermon.  Ron, who graduated from Ambassador College with a minor in math, was confused by numbers and in turn gave a confusing sermon.  When I ran the numbers and determined a 280-day period of mercy and judgment which ended Trumpets of 2009 followed immediately by a  980-day period would end the day before Pentecost of 2012, and the combination would parallel his 1260-day second timeline, it was arrogantly pointed out to me that I didn’t have ears to hear.  Thus I had my nose rubbed in the Weinland Gap.

Ron posted a PDF file on his website.  The interesting part is shown below, with corrections by yours truly.

Weinland's Timeline Chart, Corrected

Weinland's Timeline Chart, Corrected

The tan timeline shows the original second timeline [talk about an oxymoron 😀 ].  The notation on it is confusing, implying that May 27, 2012 is part of the timeline which is not the case.  So I’ve marked it up in red, to show that the timeline ends with the day before Pentecost of 2012, on May 26.  Below that is the revision, with the 1260 days split into the first, throwaway 280-day time shown in orange and the new version of “time, times, and half-a-time” shown in yellow.  The orange timeline is properly notated, as the first day was Dec 14, 2008 and the last day was September 19, 2009.  The yellow timeline begins the following day, September 20.  And it ends on May  26, 2012, despite the confusing notation just like the tan timeline that it ends on May 27.  So I corrected it in red just as I did the tan timeline.

In summary, the 980-day period does not begin the 2nd day after Trumpets, but rather the day after Trumpets.  So the Weinland Gap between the 280-day period and the 980-days period has disappeared.  And Pentecost of 2012 is not part of the count.  But there still is a Weinland Gap — right between Ron’s ears.

I’m still confused.  If God revealed this new truth to Ron, then why did he get it wrong?  Or was God confused?  Is God a confused liar who fooled Ron with the first timeline and then gave him a confused revision to the second timeline?  Or does Ron not have ears to hear what God is telling him?  What else did he get wrong?

No, I think it’s like this.  To paraphrase a saying: “Figures lie, and insane lying false prophets figure.”  But they don’t always get their figures right the first time.

At the feasts of 2007 and 2008, Ron announced that there would not be a feast held the following year and that the members should take their second tithe and send it in.  This year he didn’t repeat that announcement and mandate.  In the sermon he clarified and told his members to hang on to it for now but he might demand it later. If Ron is not immobilized by either health or legal problems, there will be a PKG feast next year.

A few more questions for you, Ron:

  • Ron, you said that Pentecost 2012 had to be included in the 980-day count to be significant.  Since it’s no longer included in the 980 days and therefore is no longer significant, will you be observing it?
  • How are the earthquakes coming along, now that we’re 4 weeks into your shortened timeline for the Great Tribulation?
  • How are you going to squeeze 42 months of beast power into 980 days less the 28 that have elapsed since Trumpets?
  • Ron, you say you were apprehensive as the 280th day (Trumpets) approached.  Did you get even the slightest hint that God was annoyed with you by making you too ill to preach?
  • And when will my quick death from the inside happen, as it’s now a revised 280-day-time + 3 weeks after you pronounced your death curse on me?

The Weinland Gap

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Over on Jack’s blog, a PKGer has been criticizing me for my last post in which I stated:

The revised “time, times, and half-a-time” (or 980 days = 3.5 x 280 days) did not begin until Trumpets of this year, and ends not at Pentecost of 2012, but rather the day before.

I admit to missing a statement by False Prophet Ron toward the end of an anti-climactic yawn of a confusing sermon.  No silent editing of my post without explanation the way Ron did his sermon back in June.  I was wrong on that point.

First a bit of a review.  The false prophet’s second timeline began at sundown in Jerusalem on the evening prior to Sunday, December 14, 2008.  This timeline lasts 1260 days or exactly 180 weeks and ends with Christ’s return at sundown in Jerusalem on the evening prior to Sunday, May 27, 2012 which is Pentecost.  In his Last Great Day sermon, Ron explained away the lack of great tribulation as being due to God’s mercy holding off the tribulation for the first 280 days or 40 weeks which ended on and included September 19, 2009, the Feast of Trumpets.  With appropriate credit for the 2-day fast at the end of January, but with no mention that Ron was too ill to speak on this day of judgment.  And this period was somehow a fulfillment of the 6th and 7th thunders.  Which are the revelation of Ron and Laura as the Witnesses and also their unitarian God, but which were to have been revealed to the world during the 6th seal.  And still haven’t been revealed in any significant way beyond the few thousand people who’ve heard of Ron and his false prophecies.

Then Ron  redefined a “time” as referred to in Daniel chapter 12 verse 7 as 280 days, so time, times, and half-a-time is now 980 days instead of 1260.  The 1260-day great tribulation less the first 280 days just happens to leave a 980-day or 140 week period still ending at the same time to be accounted for.

But as the anonymous PKGer pointed out, Ron said:

What does all of this mean?  It means that after Trumpets of this year the final time, times, and a-half are now being fulfilled.  And as I said as we go forward, God is going to give a whole lot more.   This is also important to understand that now the last day, the day of Pentecost is counted into the 980 days. To me that’s an awesome thing to understand.

And the justification:

And why would God do that?  Because in its very meaning and definition it has to be there.  It has to be a part of it. And yet in the other things we were given before it has to come up to the time of the resurrection, because it can’t include the other day.  Awesome, to understand that some things point to in timing a day where a great resurrection is going to take place at a very moment in time and it can’t count the other day that follows.  And yet another part of God’s plan reveals you have to have the other day in it to have meaning, to have purpose, to have a part of what’s pictured in it.

I’d like to thank the Anonymous PKGer for pointing this out.  I must have been confused by what he said just before this:

The 280 days is his sign, his appointed time. …  The point is that the book of Daniel, the period of time, times, and and a half did not begin until the following day of Trumpets. That’s when times … the oath from God began.   It’s incredible.  And you figure it up.

Note: later developments show that I wasn’t quite so wrong after all.

Rather confusing.  Did the 980 days begin on Trumpets?  Or the day after Trumpets?  Guess it had to have been two days after Trumpets so that the 980 days could include Pentecost.  So we have 280 days of not-so-Great Tribulation ending on the Feast of Trumpets.  Then we have a one-day gap on the Sunday following Trumpets, followed by a 980-day period.  Why the one-day gap.   Well, uh …  just because.  Because it has to be that way, so that Pentecost 2012 can be included in the 980 days so that it has meaning and purpose.  OK.  Pentecost needs to be given meaning and purpose.  Must not let Pentecost be without meaning and purpose.

Ron added a day when it was convenient.  He’s also taken days away, actually 3 and 1/2 of them.  Elsewhere in the sermon, he said:

… because of the 1290 days, which took us up to November 14, 2008.  The Seventh Seal was opened.  But connected to that same day, of the Seventh Seal, was 30 minutes of silence, 30 days.  That took us up to a prophetic fulfillment of 30 days.  Which was a final 1260 days when two witnesses began their job.  And that’s really all that’s revealed about 1260 days. That you can understand, that God gave, that will constitute a certain witness.  Because that witness has to be for exactly 1260 days.   Some people had asked in the very beginning “if they’re dead for 3 & 1/2 days they can’t witness“.  Why not?  What can be a more powerful witness of what God has said?  Than the last 3 & 1/2 days!!  That’s going to be the most powerful witness of all God was doing.  Not because of what we say.

No argument there, Ron.  Not from me.  You asked “Why Not”?  Well, no matter that you and both agree that your dead bodies would be a powerful witness — God says otherwise: the Two Witnesses are to perform their 1260-day job while living.  In Rev 11:7, it states:

And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

Back from this digression.  The 980 day period is not a subdivision of Ron’s second timeline.  It’s actually a separate albeit overlapping timeline which is significant because, well, Ron says it is.  Yet another timeline, pieced together out out of thin air, just because.

Ron continued on with his justifications:

I don’t believe that things out there in the world by any stretch of the imagination are rapidly moving forward now, in way in what we might say “put on hold”.  They weren’t put on hold, they just weren’t allowed to take place yet. But to us it’s appeared as … we’re waiting.  And the most we’re seeing is an economy that seems to be, as the world wants it to be seen, picking up.  And yet we know that its day is coming as well.  And so all those things now are speeding forward.

And a little bit, just a little taste has been given to us already.  I have watched things on the USGS for years now.  Day by day by day.  I have never seen anything that’s taking place — and I have to believe that there are some scientists today who are deeply worried by what they see taking place — I have never seen anything taking place of the magnitude, that along the plates of the earth, that things are shifting the way they are,  and things are being shaken up the way they are, in swarms of quakes in regions of the world that’s like a rippling effect that continues on.  And that’s exactly what’s taking place right now.  And it’s an incredible thing to see.  Because it won’t be too long — it’s in the water right now.  And the worst it can do is a tsunami, and that hasn’t happened yet, it’s happened on a small scale but that’s nothing.  Woe be to mankind when some of those things begin to hit land in swarms.

How convenient. We’ve had a few earthquakes in the last few weeks, although nothing significant. And well past the due date for the Second Thunder which was to have increased during the Sixth Seal and didn’t. Which did not shake the earth to its foundations in April of 2008.   If we have a few more earthquakes, Ron will keep harping on them. And if we don’t have any, Ron will pretend he never mentioned them.  In the meantime we have another classic Weinlandism: “They weren’t put on hold, they just weren’t allowed to take place yet.

Also convenient that “time, times, and a half” are now disconnected from the 1260 day period. As the Great Tribulation continues to delay he can redefine a “time” to be a shorter and shorter period. And on the morning of May 23, 2012 when he and Mrs. False Prophet are scheduled to deliver the most powerful part of their testimony by lying dead in the streets of Jerusalem for 3 & 1/2 days, a “time” will be reduced to a single day.  Oops, I did it again — Pentecost has to be included, so a time won’t be reduced to a single day until the Witlesses have been dead for a day.  No matter.  Ron will have switched to yet another timeline by then, we’ll just have to decide whether to call it his third or his fourth timeline.

Ron’s “Truth” 50 Dot 1

Friday, October 9th, 2009

diningThose few in attendance at the PKG feast site in Rye, VIC had a special meal after Johnny’s boring sermon in the morning.  After the meal, False Prophet Ronald Weinland started his highly anticipated and oft-advertised Last Great Day sermon by bemoaning how rapidly the last four days had elapsed.  Normally it would have been twice as long except for Ron’s cutting it in half.  There was also a  “Hi Mom” moment as Ron greeted his mother Ramona Weinland who is attending at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Ron has trimmed more than the length of time for feast attendance.  He has trimmed the length of a “time” from 360 days down to 280 days, which at 40 x 7 is a sign of God’s judgment and mercy .  The revised “time, times, and half-a-time” (or 980 days = 3.5 x 280 days) did not begin until the Monday following Trumpets of this year, and ends not at Pentecost of 2012, but rather the day before. {See my following post for an explanation of this edit}

Ron both raised and lowered expectations.  He mentioned that earthquake activity is increasing. But then Ron said that the European beast power might not arise until August of 2011, and China might not become prominent in his prophecy until 2012.  Deputy Wayne, have you found that job yet?

Ron is pulling out all his tricks to keep his second timeline alive and to hang onto his deluded followers and their tithe checks.

I prophesy yet another revelation from Ron on Feb 6, 2010, which is half-a-reduced-time from Trumpets of 2009.

One time that hasn’t shortened has been the length of my quick death, now 280 days plus another 13 since Ron pronounced his death curse on me.
