Time is Running Out

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland got a late start (about 10 minutes) in Cincinnati on his first weekend back from Australia.  His senior elder Steve Dalrymple and evangelist Terry Wrozek did the prayers.

Last weekend, Ron spiritualized the deaths of Laura and himself.  He continued on with this theme, heavily using his Easy Button in covering Revelation 11, the chapter on the two witnesses.  As in the past, he also used Strong’s Concordance to search for alternate meanings to words in the Bible.

Turns out that Revelation 11 is about the church.  Jerusalem is not the actual city, but rather is the church.  The gentiles are the non-believers who don’t believe his truths.  Also other nations who don’t love the United States.  The fire that comes from his mouth is judgment on those who ignore the two-edged sword that consists of the truths he invented.

Ron has long prophesied that a “tithe of a third” of those who were baptized WCG members on December 17, 1994 would join PKG before Christ returns.  He also has ordained by now over 100 of his members to baptize the millions without a CoG background who will clamor to join his church when the Great Tribulation arrives.  He now says that while it will happen, the timing has been changed by God.  This will not happen until after Christ returns.

Ron turned to Strong’s Concordance to search out alternate meanings for change or turn.  The rain that the Two Witnesses stopped up is the drought in other CoGs who won’t accept the rain of Ron’s new truths.  He has previously stated that the Two Witnesses don’t wear literal sackcloth, but rather the sackcloth of humility.  Now it’s also the scratching of others who mock Ron and his members, enemies who have been put out of Ron’s church for sins such as adultery and are eaten up inside.  I don’t know who these people are, as none of that anti-Weinland sites are run by people who were members of PKG or even another Armstrongite church and therefore could not have been disfellowshipped.  His enemies are filled with venom and eaten up inside.  Uh, no Ron.  Your critics are not eaten up.  Rather, we are watching with bemused bewilderment.  Amused by your nonsense, and amazed that anyone believes it.

Ron did issue one prophecy that I fully endorse.  He says that he will never change water to blood.  He also stated that there would not be TV coverage or interviews until it is over (but somehow TV coverage will survive World War III and the Seven Vials poured out on the day of Pentecost).  I tend to agree.  Ron did get some TV coverage — when he was indicted a local TV station had a brief (about 15 second) statement by the TV anchor as Ron’s photo imitating Herbie was displayed.  I think there may be similar TV coverage on May 28th after Christ doesn’t return.  And maybe another brief blurb on local TV should he be convicted.

Twenty-seven days until the non-return of Christ. Also, three weeks from tomorrow is a pre-trial conference with the federal court judge in his criminal matter.  There has been no court filing for yet another continuance, and I rather doubt that the judge would be sympathetic to a third request.  Should Ron decide to plead out to get a reduced sentence, he will have to make the decision and a motion filed for rearraignment on a lesser charge by May 24.  Time is running out for Ron.

May 27, 2012

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

I have not yet written my post on today’s sermon.  But Ron has already published a post he promised during the sermon.  It is republished here to give you a chance to leave a comment about it.

— Latest post by he who will not be killed in Jerusalem in about 3 weeks ————-

As readers of this site know, May 27, 2012, is the time that I have stated as being the date Jesus Christ will return as King of kings over all government on this earth. For such an event to come to pass, the Trumpets of Revelation must all sound, the United States and dollar collapse, the ten nations of Europe arise to fulfill the final revival of the Holy Roman Empire, and Russia with China must unite against Europe in WWIII.

As an aside, readers of this site should also grasp that as far as prophecy is concerned, ten nations in Europe have already combined in association with one another to the degree that the mixture of clay and iron is fulfilled. All that remains is their entrance into a final war, a prophecy that can be fulfilled quickly, as this posting will cover.

How is it possible or even conceivable that all these things can happen in such a short time? And what if none of these events have occurred as late as five, four, or even three days before Jesus Christ is to return? Is it truly reasonable that Christ is coming on May 27th? No, it is not reasonable, not within the parameters of man’s thinking. When this date was given just over three and a half years ago, it was not reasonable to people then, and now it has simply become that much more unreasonable.

But as the last apostle in this age, and as God’s end-time prophet, I am still telling people that this is true and that a short-lived WWIII is now at our doorstep. Due to this strong conviction, the Church of God – PKG is putting all its resources into promoting this final message of Christ’s impending return in order to complete the “work” that God has given us to do. This “work” is nearly complete. As my previous post was written over two months ago, this may well prove to be my final one, since there are only four weeks remaining in this age.

When I began writing posts for this site, I initially envisioned the possible need of writing more often, primarily due to our preparing for the possibility of “great tribulation” beginning at the very start of this final three and one-half year period. However, great physical tribulation did not begin at that time, and it thankfully has not yet begun. So the need to write more often in order to help people deal with tribulation that could have begun early on has not been needed. But rather, in the midst of horrifying prophecies for this end-time, God has revealed in a most powerful manner one of His greatest attributes toward His creation—toward mankind. It is the awesome quality of “mercy”!

As the Church was fully ready to immediately enter into the period of “great physical tribulation,” or at the least, within six to nine months after this final period of three and one-half years began, God began to reveal His will for “how” this final end-time would unfold. It would be in a manner that would give (or allow for) the greatest possible potential to deliver the largest number of people into a new age upon Christ’s return. Therefore, God inspired His Church early on to enter a two-day fast in order to draw closer to God and then petition Him to provide the means whereby “more” people could be saved alive to live into the new millennial period. That means and manner whereby God would accomplish this was revealed to be through His love filled “mercy” for His creation.

What Seems Right
A fast approaching fixed date of May 27th for Christ’s return does not seem reasonable to people. It just does not seem right. Throughout time, those things that God has given to people in the form of prophecy and instruction just do not seem right to mankind. Human nature has always resisted the true ways of God.

To those who watched for decades as Noah and his family built a large ship, it wasn’t reasonable to people that this ship would ever be set adrift or that God would destroy the rest of mankind in an ensuing flood. All this seemed so far fetched that people simply ignored the possibility and even ridiculed Noah—all the way up until the very day when it began to rain.

It didn’t seem right that God would lead the Israelites out of Egypt to a place that would close them in before the Red Sea, with mountainous regions on each side. It did not seem the right “way” to be lead out of Egypt. Even Pharaoh and his army believed that the Israelites had entangled and trapped themselves there. Not even Moses could imagine how God would deliver them out of such a predicament. But at the last moment, as Pharaoh and his army approached, God opened a “way” through the Red Sea.

There are many examples of events in the lives of God’s people that did not seem reasonable to them and to those around them. Yet, God has always fulfilled His word and He brings to pass exactly what He reveals through His prophets. Most often He does so in a manner that cannot be readily seen or understood.

Those in the world and in the Church that was scattered who hear (or read) what I have said about the timing of Christ’s return and all the horrific end-time events that will precede it respond in similar manner—with utter disbelief. Oftentimes, the response is also mixed with ridicule, slander, anger, mockery, chiding, correction and a seemingly endless barrage of other negative human emotions regarding the “message.” God actually addresses this exact kind of response, for this exact moment in time, by a prophecy given through Ezekiel (Ez. 12).

Summarizing what God said, He begins by declaring that there are those who have had the ability to hear, but would not, and had eyes to see, but would not. He refers to these people as a rebellious people. The only ones who fit such a description are those who have been part of God’s own Church, those who have rebelled against Him and will not listen to Him as He speaks through His prophet.

God says He will scatter such people and they will be taken into captivity. This next part will make many mad and upset with me, but this is from God and not from me. This is speaking of the vast majority of the Church that was scattered after the apostasy. They have become so spiritually sluggish that they cannot and will not accept truth that God has given since the apostasy—truth that He has given to His end-time prophet.

The Church that was scattered will not accept the truth that there was an apostasy in God’s Church (2 Thes. 2), yet their very state of being scattered, and in much smaller numbers, testifies to this truth. They will not accept that after Mr. Armstrong’s death, the Church was thrust into the last era of Laodicea, and that at the time of the apostasy, the Church was spewed out of God’s mouth. They will not acknowledge the truth God spoke concerning each and every person in the Church at the time of the apostasy—that they had become lukewarm. Refusal to repent of not believing these basic truths led to even greater rebellion against God—with greater condemnation than being lukewarm and spiritually sluggish. Then the Church became filled with stubborn pride and would not accept the ones sent to it, with God’s very own message to deliver to it.

There is much more to this story that is now being covered in a new sermon series entitled, “God’s Witnesses.” This sermon also explains that God’s two end-time witnesses do not physically die before Christ’s return, but live up to the very day they are changed from mortal to immortal. This sermon is about God’s Church that became scattered. It is the last great message that God is giving about His Church and the two witnesses He sent to it.

As Ezekiel continues to describe God’s message to His scattered people and their response to what He has told them, God declares that there is an attitude of condemnation and disbelief that His scattered people are casting upon His message to them. God says this attitude is summed up in a saying or proverb that describes their aspersions. In one way or another, they critically convey this response to God: “These days (for Christ’s return) are not upon us, but are much farther away, for all that you have told us (prophecies) has failed (has not come to pass).” [Most translations from Hebrew are awkward, but this is the thrust of what God is addressing in Ez. 12:22-23.]

This perfectly describes how such people have responded to end-time events described in the book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness. Because great physical tribulation has not yet come upon the world, and the last six Trumpets have not yet sounded, such people have fully dismissed the message God has sent to them. These things are “still” going to happen, but because of God’s great mercy, mankind has not had to suffer throughout the past three and one-half years!

So God goes on to give His answer to their rebellion: “For I am the Eternal and now I will speak [with action], and the word that I shall speak shall [now] come to pass. Now those days will come upon you. Rebellious house, these words that I have spoken, I will now perform them, says the Lord Eternal” (Ez. 12:25). These words are for this exact moment in time. May 27th is fast approaching and God will perform what He has spoken through His prophets.

WWIII Closing In
The previous posting was entitled, “WWIII: The Stage Is Being Set.” This too seems fully unreasonable to the vast majority of mankind. To most, it is unthinkable that the world might soon be thrust into such a time when nuclear bombs will suddenly destroy over one-third of all the earth. Refusal to think that this is a reasonable scenario does not prevent it from becoming a reality.

There have been long periods of war and short periods of war everywhere on this earth, but there has never been as short a period of war with such great destruction as is almost upon us. The world has not witnessed a nuclear war. Mankind has only a very limited experience with using nuclear weapons, and that was during WWII. The two cities in Japan where these atomic weapons exploded caused horrific destruction.

The examples of Nagasaki and Hiroshima have nearly been erased from the mind of mankind. But these need to be remembered. Understanding what happened then can help you have a small glimpse into what is coming. The two weapons used on these cities were small compared to the weapons of today. Over 200,000 people died as a result of those two explosions back in 1945. So let’s consider what happened then and make a few comparisons to today’s nuclear arsenal.

The atomic bomb used on Hiroshima was equivalent to 15,000 tons of TNT (15 kilotons) and that used on Nagasaki was equivalent to 21,000 tons of TNT (21 kilotons). Grasping the magnitude and destructive power of such weapons is not easy. Yet the only real means to do so is through this limited experience that mankind has had with those two bombs. It is indeed unthinkable and unimaginable to consider the affects of the fiery inferno that a modern-day war can produce, yet it is wise if you stop to consider what is about to transpire in exactly such an event.

There are facts that need to be considered about modern-day nuclear weapons. The largest nuclear weapon tested by the United States was a 15 megaton bomb, and the largest tested by Russia was a 50 megaton bomb. The 15 megaton bomb tested by the U.S. was 1,000 times larger than the 15 kiloton bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Our ability to understand such a powerfully destructive device is nearly impossible.

Today, there is an estimated arsenal of 23,000 nuclear weapons in the world, which is enough to destroy the earth and every living thing on it many times over. That is the kind of world we live in today! Of these weapons, over 10 percent are on “High Alert,” meaning they are ready to be launched on a moments notice.

WWII lasted nearly six years with a death toll that is estimated to have reached 60,000,000 people. It is a horrifying truth that a 5 megaton weapon contains more explosive power than all the explosives used during WWII. What massive death could follow such an explosion in any large city of the world from simply one such nuclear device? The truth is, in one day humanity can erase itself from the earth. It is prophesied that when China and Russia enter WWIII that they themselves will destroy a third of the earth’s population. It doesn’t take a lot of time to fulfill end-time prophecy concerning world war.

Consider the destructive power carried by a single Trident Submarine. The U.S. currently has 14 such ballistic-missile submarines. Each submarine can carry 24 ballistic missiles. A single missile can carry eight 100 kiloton nuclear warheads. There are multiples of a 100 kiloton nuclear warhead and a 455 kiloton nuclear warhead that can be used on these ballistic missiles. It is reported that the number of kilotons deployed by the Trident fleet is 345,000 or 345 megatons of destructive power.

The small arsenal of this Trident fleet alone carries nearly 70 times the total explosive power used in all of WWII. People simply cannot imagine such power that can be unleashed on the world in less than an hour of time. What kind of death toll would follow if only the number of weapons equivalent to this fleets’ power were unleashed on the earth? It could easily erase over half of all life from the earth. We have only considered a very small percentage of all the nuclear weapons in the hands of mankind. All this should help give a clearer perspective of the times in which we live and the real potential for the literal annihilation of all life from the earth in less than an hour.

The world could not endure a nuclear war that would last for 3 ½ years. Long before such a period of time would elapse, mankind would not exist on earth. A nuclear war cannot last for three months, nor for three weeks. God, in all His mercy, is controlling the final time before He will allow mankind to begin such a war—a war of man’s own doing.

God’s timing is based on the day He has set for the return of His Son as world ruler. God will allow mankind to begin his final war, but He will also quickly stop it. The reason should be obvious! “Why” massive destruction from end-time events has not yet begun is due to the reality of how massive such a war will become as soon as it starts. Once a single nuclear device is detonated, and it will happen very soon now, who will refrain themselves from retaliating? Who will be the first to limit the response of their attack once the cycle begins?

It is because of such destructive power in the hands of mankind that God has shown that if He did not intervene quickly, once such a conflagration begins, mankind would destroy itself. That is exactly what God is going to do. He will cut short the war that man begins, and He will do so on May 27th, which is also the day Jesus Christ returns.

Just Another Weinland Sermon

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Thanks to Rambo for bringing this YouTube video to my attention in the comments section of my prior post.  I thought I’d share it for the benefit of those who don’t read past the front page:

This was put up on YouTube yesterday by “WeinlandSermons”, who from his other videos appears to be one of Ronnie’s fan boys.  Even though he is the one who put up the clip of Ronnie’s death curse on mockers issued in April of 2008 and which is shared more often by Ronnie’s critics.  But from this video, you suspect he’s not so much a fan any more. Some notable quotes from the YouTube clip:

“I strive not to allow any of my reasoning….to get in the way”

Tell us something new, Ronnie.

“I’ve been watching Glen Beck too much.”

Yes, Ronnie. You do watch a lot of cable TV. I wonder how many of your followers are doing without cable TV (and other things) because they threw down their pitchers.

“.. and if they speak a lie, they are not yielding themselves to the righteousness of God.

Unless of course we’re talking about Weinland’s God, who lies to him so he can pass the lies along to his followers.

At the end of the YouTube video, are a couple of clips which I think are from other sermons even though “WeinlandSermons” described them as all coming from the same sermon. I suspect that “WeinlandSermons” may be “thinking differently”.  The increase in web traffic to this site beginning on Saturday suggests that others may be beginning to “think differently” as well.  Now 31 days until Weinland’s sealed are not made members of Elohim.  We’re expecting a sermon following up about that. It’s amazing!!!!

Entangled and Entrapped

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland is in Australia scheduled to return to speak in Cincinnati next weekend.  Before, discussing the sermon, let’s review “2008 — God’s Final Witness”.

[pg 111]The question about how God has revealed His truth to me is a fair one. The answer that I am who I say I am will be given by the events described in both books coming true exactly as I have described.

[pg 22] These two prophets of God will complete the work that God has given them to do, then they will be killed in the streets of Jerusalem. Their bodies will remain in the streets of Jerusalem for three and one-half days while the world watches via television.

In this weekend’s sermon, at 12 minutes into the file:

The two witnesses will not be killed in the literal city of Jerusalem.  And their dead bodies will not lie in the streets for 3 1/2 days.  God’s two witnesses will live right up to the coming of Jesus Christ, coming to this earth as the king of kings.  This 3 1/2 days spoken of here about the two witnesses is fully about the past nearly 3 1/2 years, what we have been living.

—— The following is an update to this post, written after listening to the rest of Ronnie’s ramblings ——

After making the big announcement, Ron went on with his attempt to justify his changes.  He went back through history, although he couldn’t remember the name of Basil Wolverton who was HWA’s tame illustrator drawing cartoons with horrific themes such as the illustration of the body of a woman raped, tortured, and murdered in the old testament and the illustrations of people suffering the great tribulation.  In the olden days, Armstrongites expected the Great Tribulation to last for 3 1/2 years.  But we know much better than that now.

PKG was hidden away within the United Church of God following Tkach’s apostasy but left after a time and a year later on Pentecost of 1998 the new era supposedly began.  Weinland then reviewed some of his old literature from around the change in millenniums: his periodical “Newswatch” and his Armstrongite-style booklets “Time is Running Out” and “Time Has Run Out”.

Ron reminded PKG members how God had great mercy on them by allowing him to reveal the 50th Truth a few months ahead of his scheduled date of Trumpets of 2008.  Which had nothing to do with Ron realizing that he would lose followers unless he showed that Sign and Lying Wonder right away.

Forty-two months is 3 1/2 years which is like … ta-da — 3 1/2 days.  3 1/2 days/years of spiritualised death.  I’m finding it increasingly more difficult to hang on to the possibility that Ron believes the nonsense he puts out on a weekly basis.  First Ron spiritualizes my death and the deaths of other mockers.  Now he spiritualizes the deaths of himself and the Mrs.  Next he’ll spiritualize the return of Christ.

This was part one of a multi-part sermon series.  Ron is crossing the Red Sea and God is revealing things incrementally.  I wonder if God will reveal to Ron how to explain this statement made just 5 weeks ago, on March 17:

I have come to believe with all my being that the vast majority of the destruction happens after I’m dead. Do we have eyes to see and ears to hear?

The real question is: Do PKG members have minds to think?

Don’t Drink the …. What??

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Thought I would make a slightly belated personal post.  It was 4 years ago last Friday that I wrote my first blog post about Weinland on my Blogspot blog “Don’t Drink the Flavor Aid”.  This was shortly before the first time the first trumpet blew 4 years ago today on April 17, 2008 as Ron and Laura were with the Harrell’s in Jerusalem and the Pope was in the U.S. to start doing beastly things like apologizing for the abuse scandal with some of his priests.  Although I started out with a focus on mocking Weinland, it soon became much more as I came to learn the stories of some affected by Weinland’s prophecies.  As a result of my blogging, I’ve expanded my horizons and have interacted with people around the world.

My domain name web hosting was set to expire at the end of next month, just a few days after Christ’s scheduled return.  The story of Weinland and PKG will not end at sundown in Jerusalem on the eve of Pentecost, but will move to a new phase no matter how Weinland spins the non events.  So I have renewed my web hosting and plan to keep the blog open for whatever purpose it evolves to.

I closed my original blog post 4 years ago with the following:

So we’ll look at the progression of Ronald’s train wreck as his prophecies fail to materialise. Will his followers come to their senses, or will there be a Jim-Jones-style massacre? My expectation is that neither will happen. Rather, Weinland will be able to spin the facts and maintain a grip on a sufficient number of his tithe-paying followers to fund his senior years.

How about that for prophecy?

A Quantum Leap in the Front Row Seats to the Final Countdown

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland ended the Days of Unleavened Bread on Friday in Australia. His sermon was focused on the impending return of Christ in 6 weeks.  He referred back to the Last Great Day sermon as a test of whether his members believed that PKG is the true church.  Ron stated that he believes in Christ’s imminent return with everything he does, but went on to talk about how even if it doesn’t happen we are in economic difficulties.  Since Ron is so totally committed to the certainty of Christ’s return on Pentecost/Memorial Day weekend, then he didn’t pay the property taxes on his house last fall.  And he’s not funding the defense team in his criminal trial or otherwise preparing for trial, since the trial begins a week after Ron joins Elohim.  But then Ron DID pay his property taxes last fall.  Hmmm.  Wonder how trial preparation is going.

Ron marveled at what would happen after joining Elohim.  As a spirit being he would be able to pop in on people when he want … oh, never mind — there would be limitations.  He compared being able to look down from above to his experience at bungee jumping in New Zealand.

Ron promises a sermon next week with new revelations from God that will make Satan angry and frustrated.  Satan thinks he has led the church into a trap, but Satan is only a pawn.  Even though 10 nations have still not yet arisen, events will proceed according to God’s timing. The Red Sea will part at the last minute and pull Ron’s fat out of the fire.  Ron also promises that we will be able to see all the final events on TV or in some way.  Uh, huh.

For the Saturday services, Ron announced an ordination of a new elder but would not give Matt’s last name because of different web sites on the Internet that harass his elders.  Not sure which web sites these would be, perhaps their authors fell victim to the death curse Ron issued in December of 2008 against anyone who would criticize either him or the church. He also ordained Charmaine. After these announcements, Ron turned the mike over to his evangelists for a split sermon.

Wayne Matthews gave the first part, talking about the unmistakable proof of Christ’s return which God places in the mind.  Unlike all the kooks who set dates, this one is for real because it’s part of God’s perfect plan and God never changes dates.  Seems that God lies, because he gave the date of last year’s Feast of Trumpets to Ron first.

Wayne believes Jesus will be established as king at the end of the sabbath in Jerusalem on May 26 because God placed the truth in his mind.  He stated that it could absolutely be proven that Christ returns on Pentecost, and then went on to give a muddled explanation based on Ron’s interpretation of scripture.  Which included a statement that Christ was put on the stake (not cross) at 9 AM and died at 3 PM.  Provable.  So Wayne, where is the proof of those times? Was it 3 PM and not 3:01 PM?  Is this time from 2000 years ago more closely defined than the moment of Joe Tkach’s apostasy 17 years ago?

Wayne referred to the infallible charts on the website, which would include the one that gives the disproven claim that Joe Tkach died to the very hour 40 weeks after delivering the sermon of apostasy in Atlanta.

Wayne reiterated that everything was going according to God’s perfect plan, bombs will go off here and there.  It will be obvious to everyone when Christ returns.  That some PKG members will watch other PKG members converted to spirit beings (PKG’s equivalent to a rapture) on that day, less than 6 weeks from now.

Johnny Harrell reiterated the PKG members have a front-row seat to events, and warned them to fasten their seatbelts.  But some PKG members will not wait, with Satan fighting a battle in their minds.

I wonder how it is PKG members know that it was God and not Satan who put it in their minds that Ron is God’s prophet and speaks for him.  And how it is that the last 3 1/2 years have been a training period for the sealed when Ron’s book states that the sealed were fully trained at the moment of the sealing on September 30, 2008.

And what their reaction will be at 12:37 PM on May 26 in Cincinnati when bombs have not gone off and the PKG members who are part of the sealing have not joined Elohim?

The Lost Generation

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

ChaCha left a comment on another post this morning

Kirrily,

I think of you and your hubbie and baby all the time. A couple of years ago, I would have wondered what you were thinking to have a baby “at this time”. ugh. So sad how many YOUNG people in PKG have their lives on hold. Even sadder for those older ones..who are down to the wire…biological-clock wise. I am so happy for you to have gotten out and to have your beautiful son!

And a few days ago, Kirrily sent me an email:

Here is my favorite pic of Corey to date. Looking into his beautiful little eyes, I can’t help but think he wouldn’t be here if I was still in PKG. Also makes me think how many Corey’s do not exist because people follow false prophets. So sad.

Feel free to share Corey’s latest pic on your blog if you like – the face of a child that exists because I admitted my error in believing Ron, and that the tribulation was imminent!

What more could I say?  Except that I’m very happy for Kirrily and her husband!!!

 

Jubilee

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland is in New Zealand. Even though Ronnie’s retinue includes Johnny Harrell, he gave local elders Pat Cameron and Adrian Gray some mike time for the prayers. Johnny got to give part of the Passover service on Thursday evening and will give a split sermon with Wayne next week.

Ron made his sermon about this being the Jubilee year, which comes along every 50 years. And coincidentally around the start of the counting of 50 days to Pentecost. During the Jubilee year, Israelites (but not foreigners) have their payments on debts deferred. Jubilee is about deliverance, with Christ returning this year to deliver us from Satan whom God created on purpose in the first place.

Ron referred back to this distortion of the story of Gideon and the “running down the hill together” theme he invented around that story and repeated in 2007 and 2008. “Running down the hill together” was his metaphor for showing a commitment to his prophecies, which his members did by turning over their life savings to him so he could go on his Total Resolve Mediterranean Cruise and pay the property taxes on his Total Resolve House on a Golf Course which he allegedly refinanced to get money to put into the church.  It was an understatement that they didn’t know what lay before them (even though Ron is God’s most formidable prophet) and it turned out to be a delay of the Great Tribulation as God showed mercy on the world.

Ron mocked the Baptists and other Protestants for teaching swill and garbage, and deriving their core doctrines from the Catholic Church.  Being morons for believing Christ died on a cross instead of a stake.  But otherwise the Spokesman Witness did not mention the Bishop of Rome.  Now Ron, if you want to irritate the Beast Power when it arises during the next 6 weeks sufficiently to motivate it to haul you off to Jerusalem, you’ll have to be much more critical.  It’s not 7 sabbaths and a day that remain for that, Ron.  It’s 6 sabbaths and a couple of days.  Unless that turns out to be the thing about the two witnesses which is not as expected.  How about that, Ron?
