Ron in Rotorua
The Feast of Tabernacles began first for the COG-PKG in New Zealand where Mr. and Mrs. False Prophet Ronald Weinland have traveled. With the abbreviated feast schedule, Rotorua in New Zealand is the only location at which members assemble during the first 4 days of the feast. Some local areas may be assembling for the first high day, and maybe a few of these areas will even have a catered meal between the morning and afternoon services as was the custom in past years when the COG-PKG assembled at one location in the US for the entire 7 days of the feast plus the Last Great Day.
Ron started his first sermon by mentioning the earthquakes, tsunamis, and typhoons of the last week. Never mind that these are of lower intensity than the events that happened before he wrote “2008 – God’s Final Witness” which included the chapter “The Seven Thunders of the 6th Seal” and stated on page 115:
During the Sixth Seal, all Seven Thunders will be getting progressively louder. Before the Seventh (and final) Seal is opened, the Seven Thunders will become so pronounced that the validity of everything written about them in the previous chapter should roar loudly in the ears of anyone who is willing to admit the truth.
According to Ron, many single young men have joined his church. Who are concerned that there aren’t as many single young women to date. Prophetess Laura tells the young men that’s because they are not yet ready for young women, they need this time to grow so they are ready when hordes of nubile young females join the church later on. Since Laura grew up in Armstrongism she’s well acquainted with how to handle complaints when things are bad – blame the member.
Ron talked about the opportunities that Jeremy has had to travel (even as the Great Tribulation continues). Jeremy and Patricia live in Germany and traveled to Indonesia and Borneo. I wonder where the opportunity for a young man to globe trot comes from and how this is financed.
Ron still is not dropping clues about the rabbit he’s going to pull out of the hat next Saturday on the Last Great Day. Guess we’ll have to wait, as I have for my quick death from the inside now 41 weeks after Ron reissued his curse.
