The End of Time and More of It

Monday, June 28th, 2010

False Prophet Ronald Weinland spoke in Toronto Saturday before an audience assembled from Calgary in the west to Nova Scotia in the east.  But none of the Canadian elders got a chance to shine as neither of evangelists Johnny Harrell and Terry Wrozek have left PKG but instead were in attendance to give the prayers.

Yesterday was the last day of the first “Time” under his revised second timeline, with a “time” being 280 days instead of 260 and the start of “Time, Times, and half-a-Time” being the day after the Feast of Trumpets last year.  Ron interrupted his series on tithing to address to revisit prophecy.

At one point, Ron rambled off on a rant about taxes, and then said “I’m not sure why I went off on that tangent.  But yes, I do”.  And we do too.  It seems that Cesar doesn’t believe that the Spokesman Witness has followed his own teachings by rendering all that he owed to Cesar.

Ron stated that the thunders are increasing, but that we’re numb to it.  Hmmm.  I thought that the reason for the thunders increasing was to get our attention so we’d repent.  And he said that all the thunders have increased, except for the fourth one, the economy, which has morphed into the first trumpet.  Again, hmmm.  I haven’t heard that even a single one of the five competing CoG meisters whom he prophesied would die early on to prove him as a true prophet of God have cooperated with that.  And as Thielogical Bob has pointed out, his websites have dropped dramatically in the Alexa ratings the main reason for which is that Ronnie has stopped spending money on Google advertising.  Ron claimed that the intensity and frequency of floods, volcanoes, and earthquakes is increasing.  He cited a few examples of events but hasn’t provided hard statistics.  How about it, Ron?  It’s been awhile since you’ve written anything on your blog — give us a new post with some hard statistics, comparing the intensity and frequency of earthquakes or whatever for recent periods to prior periods.  I double dare you, you Insane Lying False Prophet.

Ron’s sermon title was “More Time”, but he promises that he’s not revising the end date.  Some carrots were dangled on the topic of Time for next week and the Feast of Tabernacles.  I’m preparing to be not-dazzled.

Technical Problems

Monday, June 28th, 2010

I’ve managed to recover the database but not including the latest posts. So Ronnie’s death curse has yet to take effect 😀 I’ll re-entered manually the missing post including the comments. My hosting company has made some changes which hopefully will end the intermittent slow downs — seems to be working well so far.

Here is a copy of the interim post from earlier today and the comments on it.

Due to massive technical problems with the database, I’m doing a bit of a reset.  The Spokesman Witness gets a break while I recover, no doubt he will attribute this to his death curse 😀

See, this is where MySQL really, really, drops the ball. You don’t see this behavior with the commercial databases.

Doesn’t matter what he says. You’re still alive and he’s an impotent curser.

Ha! Ron couldn’t curse his way out of a wet paper bag.

Is is my mySQL or is it my hosting company? I complain to godaddy, and they just point fingers. Their last claim was that I had database problems. Well, this is a fresh database and it’s not working very well.

What’s a better alternative?

Your dedication is a thing to fear and behold, Mike. 😉

The WW blog stayed pretty well intact, except for the audio files, and when Hotlinkfiles went down (and took all the audio clips with it), I just couldn’t have been bothered to find another source to upload them to, that would have been compatible with the free WordPress, and then go through and manually fix all the links (because, again, free WordPress).

Which is my long and rambling way of saying, I wish I had your kind of motivation to stick with it, even after the first timeline failed. I think you’re pretty much the only one left seriously debunking the Two Witlesses, because Jack is the much-needed and well-appreciated comic relief. 🙂

Don’t forget about Dill Weed.

But even though Rotten Ronnie has failed, and refailed, and had actually proven himself a false prophet before the first timeline even started, people continue to follow him. And even more start following him. Hard to believe, I know. But that’s why I continue.

An Act of God

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

False Prophet Ronald Weinland was in Richmond, Virginia this weekend.  The local region there has not grown (actually several members have left since the sealing), so Ralph Dowd was imported to give the opening prayer and Dave Conley gave the closing.

Ron announced the ordination of yet another associate elder, having ordained Reba from Lubbock last week while in Dallas.  Ron is still negotiating with the venue for the feast site in Florida, maybe he expects a discount should the oil spill migrate around the east coast to Jacksonville.  I imagine the hotel is not going to bargain, expecting spillover business that would have went ordinarily to the Gulf region.

Ron had to disfellowship a member from Montana.  Ron doesn’t appreciate the competition, as the df’ed member believes himself to be one of the Two Witnesses.  Perhaps this member viewed this as an open position as Laura hasn’t done any prophesying recently — haven’t even heard her cackling recently.

Come to think of it, Ron hasn’t done much prophesying either.  He’s minimizing his prophecy, and hasn’t even taken note that next weekend is the opening of the window for the Fifth Trumpet that he gave last fall.  Saturday is the end of the first 280-day revised time that began with the Feast of Trumpets last fall.  I wonder why Ron didn’t call a fast as he did for the end of the first half-time back in February.  In the meantime, he is happy about the destruction of the statue shown on the right which burned down after being struck down by lightning.  This was not the result of a plague called down from heaven by the Spokesman Witness during one of his many trips past it on his way to preach to the faithful in the Toledo/Detroit area.

Ron was reluctant to give the name of the pet lamb he had while growing up.   Ron, I could care less what you named your lamb as a child.  What I care about is the abuse you lay on your sheep as an adult.

The First Trumpet: It Just Goes On and On

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

False Prophet Ronald Weinland delivered his sermon this weekend before the faithful in Dallas, Texas.  This is one of the larger PKG groups, local elders Steve Blair and Jimmy Carlisle gave the prayers so it wasn’t necessary to import Ralph Dowd.  But for some reason it was necessary for Greg Chipps to come along. Greg programs the web page where PKG members register for up to 8 days of attendance of the Feast of Tabernacles this fall.

Ron had trouble pronouncing some names as he was reading from the scripture, which isn’t surprising considering that he has problems pronouncing the names of his own members. The sermon topic was one near and dear to the Two Witnesses’ hearts:  Tithes and Offerings.  Ron collects tithes although he has Czech and German background and therefore is not a Levite.

It also seems that the English monarchy are Jews since they descended from King David.  My research indicates that they are actually Germans, but if a German can be a Levite and collect tithes, then I guess they can be Jews as well. Since this was part 1 of a what will probably be a long series, perhaps Ron will shed more light on that.  Or maybe not, as he proudly reiterated his conversion to Armstrongism which did not require any scripture or other research.  Just as his followers are able to remain convinced of Ron’s prophecies despite his abysmal track record.

Subways of London

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

False Prophet Ronald Weinland was in Bloomington, Illinois this weekend.  He mentioned needing to add more chairs to their small conference room, but the group included Sam Qualls and Shawn Christal imported from Missouri.  Additionally, he imported Al Volle and Ralph Dowd from Cincinnati to give the prayers.  Al Volle had a Freudian slip during the prayers, almost saying “Mr. Armstrong” when talking about Weinland. Perhaps Al and Sam compared notes as they have been mentioned previously on this blog. Ralph is indeed a senior elder and is placed over newly promoted full elder Lynette Eckhardt and the rest of PKG in Illinois.

The dollar is about to go down the toilet.  There was much chuckling over the phrase “safety of treasuries”.  As Jack has pointed out, the US dollar is worth more than the Canadian dollar contradicting what Ron stated.  Personally, I’m not interested in financial advice from someone under criminal investigation by the IRS.

Ron’s sermon was about preparation for the Feast of Tabernacles, the first full feast to be observed by PKG since what was to be the last full feast in 2007.  He put out his standard spiel about how there might not be a feast this year. (MP3 clip)  I expect that we’ll hear Ron repeat this a few more times before they have their feast this fall.

In the Millennium, some in PKG will be part of the 144,000 giving feast sermons.  But the only ones guaranteed for sure to be in that cohort are Ron and Laura.  Attendance at the feast is a powerful spiritual tool that will draw people together.  But despite having traveled to the US in the past to attend the full 8 days and despite having been sealed on the Feast of Trumpets of 2008, Benjamin Ikwueme has lost out because he refused to kowtow to Ron’s Facebook doctrine.

PKG members are not to work during the feast this year, even if not able to attend a sponsored feast site due to finances.  Not even on the 5 days that are not high days or the sabbath in the middle. Ron may provide financial assistance.  But people who take advantage of 2nd tithe assistance will not be in the 144,000.

Ron mentioned a number of feast sites including

  • Idaho
  • Hawaii
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Rhode Island
  • Jacksonville, Florida
  • Niagara Falls area
  • Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • Netherlands
  • Scotland
  • Rotorua, New Zealand
  • Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

This is in contrast to feasts prior to 2008 in which there was only a single site in the US and a few smaller overseas sites although many of the overseas members traveled to the US.

Ron took some time to rail against the crackpots and weirdos out there.  (MP3 clip)  Can anyone tell me who they are?  And what crazy things they did?
