The Burning Bush

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

For False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s first pre-recorded sermon for the Feast of Tabernacles during the Day of the Lord, he stated he was not Moses but recycled his earlier sermon series comparing himself to him.  He likened the history of PKG beginning with the breakup of WCG through the turmoil in 2000 when he seized the corporation from the lay church board by the expedient method of disfellowshipping them. After that episode, there was a period of relative peace within PKG.

Ron’s hasn’t seen any burning bushes, his new truths were just put in his mind by God. Ron criticized those who have left PKG as returning to spiritual Egypt.  It astounds him that some no longer buy into his lying wonder that Joe Tkach was the man of sin and son of perdition.  We are on the brink of world war.  The fearful things scheduled for 2008 will still happen, and they won’t be bundled into an hour as Ron had scheduled them during his last sermon before Christ didn’t return in May.

Ron’s 57 “truths” are not freeing PKG members, just signs and lying wonders he uses to enslave them.  Hopefully more will cross the River Jordan and be freed after Judge Reeves sends him to Club Fed in 4 weeks.

The End of Tribulation

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

Yesterday, False Prophet Ronald Weinland spoke before a group of PKG members with “feast fever” — the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles is tomorrow (Monday).  Ron had special greetings to Helen, probably Helen Terlecki, which are not included in the recorded version.

Ron reviewed history, starting with Tkach’s sermon in Atlanta on December 17, 1994. Weinland attaches great prophetic significance to that event.  Apparently so do many PKG members, who have decided that Weinland’s interpretation of that event is proof that PKG is God’s true church and Ron is his apostle.  That belief is intensified by Tkach’s death 40 weeks to the day after delivering that sermon.  Ron claims (though he didn’t repeat it yesterday) that Tkach’s death was also to the same hour of the day even though I’ve come up with documentation showing that to be one of Ron’s lying wonders.

Ron talked about PKG members who were on their rooftops on May 26th to see Christ in the heavens on his return.  But also mentioned receiving a letter from a long time member and elder who is confused by Ron’s non events.  Ron’s is blown away that some of his members have thrown away all of his truths just because his prophecies have all failed miserably.

Ron warned his members to be especially careful traveling to the feast, as the world is more stirred up.  Ron also mentioned being heavily bombarded this past week and being totally spent.  This could mean that Ron did not fair well in the presentence investigation report (PSR) which was due to be issued by the US Probation Office last week.  The Probation Officer was tasked to investigate the circumstances of Ron’s crimes to report on other factors to be used in determining how severe Ron’s punishment should be.

Ron’s sermon was about the end of tribulation on the church. That could happen if Ron gets a nice long vacation in Club Fed.

Jerusalem

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Ron must be bored in the basement of his home on the golf course purchased for $381,000, as he has written a new post only 10 days after the last one.

JERUSALEM:
September 25, 2012

The Arab Spring, also known as the Arab Revolutions, was never about the rise of democracy, but it has been about the gathering of an Islamic firestorm against the West. Religious differences and religious fervor are at the heart of the next world war. The descendants of Abraham, who have evolved into three major religions of the world, are now experiencing the exposure of their true incompatible differences.

God is unmasking these differences to reveal the truth that these opposing religions can never experience reconciliation. Reconciliation can lead to peace, but divisions only lead to war. Their differences are central to what leads this world into a final confrontation.

The Western world of Christianity is steadily growing in its apprehension of Islam and is going out of its way to appease Muslims and walk more softly so as not to offend that which it fears. Those of Judaism see this growing weakness and grasp the foolishness of a pandering West. As stated in the last post with a reported quote from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu toward the U.S., “Time has run out!” More than any other people on earth, the Israelis grasp the true motivation of an Iran that sees itself as the instrument of the end-time Mahdi to bring about Israel’s total destruction, the killing of all infidels, and raising the flag of Islam in all corners of the world. This is not received as real to the West, but it is to Israel, and it is to Iran.

Jerusalem Compassed With Armies:
One of the oldest and most fought over cities of the world is Jerusalem, whose name ironically means “the way of peace” or “to teach peace.” Yet the three major religions; Islam, Judaism and Christianity have not fared well in the way of peace and certainly not over Jerusalem throughout the centuries.

The West is very much asleep when it comes to the reality of an emerging world war that is now at our doorstep. One would think that at least the southern United States—the Bible Belt regions—would be wide awake and crying out for fear of what they see in the Mideast, especially when considering some of their teachings. There are many beliefs that concern Jerusalem being surrounded by armies as a sign of end-time events along with armies gathering together for the final world conflict called Armageddon.

That region of the world is seething with unrest and growing cries for war, and even world war. Iran is sending some of its elite militias and weapons into Syria to support that regime and bolster its position against Israel. In addition, they are also stirring up unrest in Lebanon through Hezbollah. In the south, Egypt has been moving military and armaments into the Sinai of Egypt in violation of the 1979 Egypt – Israel Peace Treaty.

Last week an article in the U.K. Telegraph reported on the gathering armada of military power amassing in the Persian Gulf stating, “Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.”

On the same day the AP reported, “The top commander in Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard warned Sunday that his country’s missiles will ensure ‘nothing will remain’ of Israel if it takes military action against Tehran over its controversial nuclear program.” The article went on to state, “Such warnings and references to Israel’s destruction have been made before by Iranian officials. But Gen. Jafari’s comments to a Tehran news conference were an unusually detailed, strongly worded and comprehensive listing of the means that Iran says it has to retaliate against a strike on its nuclear facilities.”

Israel’s rhetoric is also becoming stronger. Recently Shimon Peres spoke of the world being in a unique era of history and in reference to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad he stated, “Since Hitler, no head of state has expressed a desire to destroy a people and to eliminate an entire country.”

There is good reason for many Israelis to draw such a conclusion about Hitler and the declarations of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has spoken in admirable terms of Hitler, repeatedly denounced the occurrence of the holocaust, and declared the desire for the annihilation of the Jewish people. Add to this the history and attitude that is associated with the name change of Persia to Iran and such concerns are deepened. In 1935, the shah of Iran, the father of the man deposed in 1979, being a Nazi sympathizer and one who hated the Jews, began officially changing the name of Persia to Iran (literally meaning “land of the Aryans”).

A sobering statement was made a couple of weeks ago by the former head of Knessett’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Tzachi Hanegbi: “We now stand, in my opinion, before the 50 most fateful days in Israel’s history, since perhaps the Yom Kippur War, in which there were also several dozen fateful days.” Certainly these times are serious and dire for the people of Israel.

Armies are being gathered together in the Mideast, and they are being gathered together by the only One Almighty Self-existing Eternal God, as He prepares this world for its final battle and the overthrow of every government. Then on the final day of man’s government, May 19 of 2013, God will establish His government, the Kingdom of God that will rule over the earth, bringing it true and lasting peace. But before mankind can finally experience true and lasting peace on this earth, there must be one more great war—a final world war in which God will intervene to end all war, forever!

And now your turn to weigh in.

It’s About the Relationships, Stupid

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland may have delivered yesterday’s sermon from the basement of his home again, at one point it sounded like a dog was whining in the background.  Mike Knopf (phonetic) delivered a prayer for the 3rd time in the last few months.  Ron stated that the feast sermons will be posted on the church website on a daily basis — for now they are being made available only to baptized members.

Ron seemed to be winding up his series on “going to a brother”, titling this one as “Gaining a Brother”.  He discussed the mechanism for confronting an offending fellow member.  Boiled down to confronting them first in private, but it that doesn’t work to turn it over to an elder.  Only ministers are allowed to sign letters “In Christ’s Service”, as they have authority given them by Christ.

He also defined mockers to include someone who teaches falsely.  Perhaps they are exempted from Weinland’s death curse to die from the inside slowly, no speedily.  On the topic of my death, we’re now in the 8th “hour” of the year-long “Day of the Lord” during which Christ is returning.  So when is the exclusive club (including yours truly) of 7000 named individuals   to die during the hour of Christ’s return going to actually die?

Upcoming events: Tomorrow, Ron gets to continue wearing the GPS ankle bracelet of humility while he watches cable TV since his sentencing was delayed to October 29.  On Wednesday is the Day of Atonement.  On Saturday we find out what Ron’s new sermon series is about.  The following Monday Ron goes to the place God has placed his name which is the basement in his home as that is the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles.

Looking to the Sky

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland was pre-recorded for the Trumpets sermon on Monday.  While they thought that last year’s Trumpets was the last before Christ’s return, they know really for sure that this year’s really is it.  Last year’s Trumpets was also notable as being the first time that Christ didn’t return as Weinland prophesied. On the second time Christ didn’t return (May 26), PKG members were looking to the sky.

Since then, some have departed from Jerusalem (Weinland’s new vernacular for leaving PKG).  Some went to back to Rome, which may be Weinland’s new vernacular for Clarion Call Dave Pack’s Restored Church of God.  Ron mentioned spiritual warfare in New Zealand, where the senior elder decided Dave Pack’s Flavor Aid tastes better and couldn’t wait for any more of Ron’s empty promises.  And according to Dave’s web site, a few others from New Zealand have also followed Adrian Gray.  Long time members, back from around PKG’s start (Ron rebranded in 2000) and even some former WCG members have left.   But that’s just more sifting of the chaff.

Coming up week after next is a profound time, which is the only Feast of Tabernacles in the Day of the Lord.  Next year’s feast will be profound for PKG, with Ron likely in prison.

Time Running Out

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland delivered the fourth in his sermon series on relationships within the church.  Mark Wiesman gave the opening prayer.  Steve Dalrymple, who believes that deep tissue massages are a legitimate religious expense, gave the closing.

He stated that pre-recorded feast sermons (except for the Last Great Day) are available for the members to download.  Which they should do so right away because the wrath of God might be poured out on the earth before the Last Great Day which is October 7th.  The sermons are tucked away in a secret location to foil Satan and his demons who are anxious to learn new truths.

Ron already has told some of the elderly not to travel to the feast, and now says that there will be no telephone hookup during the feast either.  Perhaps this is a strategy to trim some of the technologically challenged elderly who would be exempted from paying tithes anyway, unless their elder is kindly enough to copy the sermons to cassette tape for them.

Ron is still ordaining elders during the Day of the Lord.  Mike from Indiana, who perhaps is Mike Knopf (phonetic) who has twice given prayers since Ron has donned the GPS-tracking ankle bracelet of humility.  And Sarah from Cincinnati, who may be Sarah Shockey whose husband Joey and mother Beth are already elders.

Some ironic moments during Ron’s sermon.  Matthew 24:11 was read, and Ron included in “many false prophets” those who would presume to speak in an inspired manner.  Such as those who would teach something different than what Herbert Armstrong taught.  For example a new teaching that Christ did not exist before being born to Mary.  And Matthew 18:12 about the shepherd leaving his flock to chase down one who has gone astray.  Like Christian from Australia who was disfellowshipped about an hour after expressing some doubts, and told that it was not his evangelist’s job to explain things.

Monday is the Feast of Trumpets, and next week Wednesday is Atonement.  The Feast of Tabernacles is the first week of October followed by the Last Great Day on October 8.  And six weeks from now, on October 29, time will run out for Ron as he is sentenced by Judge Reeves for the 5 counts of criminal tax evasion for which he was convicted.  As time is running out in the Day of the Lord, in which we are already in the 8th hour.

Time Has Run Out

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland put up a new blog posting this morning, three months after his last one which was couple of days after was convicted of 5 counts of criminal tax evasion.  As usual, it’s repeated below for your convenience and commenting.

———–  Ronnie’s latest drivel —————–

September 15, 2012

TIME HAS RUN OUT:

It is Sabbath morning as I begin to write this post, and I am struck by how quickly time has passed since my last post exactly three months ago. That post was entitled, “God’s Time.” Since God’s Church had been focused on May 27th to be the literal “day” of Christ’s return, that post stated: “…there was more to the meaning of this final day to which we had finally arrived. This literal day was the beginning of a final prophetic day.”

God’s Church believes that on May 27th God revealed we had entered the “day” of Christ’s return, but that it was a “prophetic day” which is a literal year in length, from God’s Holy Day of Pentecost of 2012 to Pentecost of 2013. We now have 30 weeks remaining before the coming of the King of kings to reign over all the nations of this world.

We are in the prophetic “Day of the Lord,” which is the transition of time where God will intervene in world affairs and prepare it for the return of His Son to establish His Government on this earth and bring an end to man’s self-rule that now has existed for 6,000 years. Mankind cannot successfully govern himself. No nation and no group of nations can deliver peace for this world.

The efforts made to insure peace for nations in the 20th century failed, first in the form of the League of Nations, and now the United Nations, which has proven man’s inability to deliver peace. The truth is that the United Nations has established the greatest witness of all time that mankind is fully incapable of leading the way to peace. Instead, it is has made a mockery of man’s noblest attempts to do so.

In the beginning of this 21st century, the evidence of all government efforts to work toward peace has only magnified the basic nature of mankind, which is selfishness. This base nature manifests itself in self-interests that prevents peace, and instead, strengthens divisions of people and nations.

Even within what is espoused to be the greatest democracy and insurer of freedoms as a nation, the United States is flooded with division and selfish motivations. Two political groups are now vying for power so that they can lead in what each believes is the best way to insure freedoms, economic stability, peace, etc. But they cannot accomplish such a thing because economic instability, political differences, special interests, and division itself is the result of the basic flaw and weakness of human nature: selfishness. This is one of the very reasons God gave mankind 6,000 years of self-rule. It is to give a powerful witness (true testimony) that selfish human nature is incapable of producing successful government, religion, justice or peace for mankind.

Human nature, being one of selfishness, produces prejudice; however, most people believe themselves to be above prejudice. Yet prejudice is at the heart and core of selfishness because human nature believes that it is right and others are wrong, hence prejudice that cannot readily be seen.

God’s Day
We now find ourselves in God’s Day that has only 30 more weeks to be completely fulfilled. All that the world has been warned would come, but would not listen, is now at hand. As God’s final witness given to mankind, the world is about to enter its final world war and it is coming as the product of a clash in the three major religions that have evolved from the descendants of Abraham.

These three religions do not mix! They do not produce peace. The world is about to witness that great truth. The divisions and differences are now being magnified and the core of true human nature is manifesting itself more clearly.

Several Islamic nations are now witnessing hatred erupting in their streets against the United States and other nations who basically comprise those of “traditional” Christianity. An even greater division and boiling point is emerging between the Jewish nation of Israel and several Islamic nations, of which Iran is the spearhead for inciting war and annihilation of the Jewish state.

Most of the western world is oblivious to the most basic truth concerning the primary motivations that propel the Iranian religious hierarchy and leading civil authorities to the development of nuclear weapons. They are not only highly motivated by a most basic religious belief, but they are even controlled by it.

This deeply motivating force comes from the absolute conviction of most Shiite Muslims that the world is entering a final era of judgment of end-time events that will bring them a savior—the 12th Imam—along with his army (Mahdi’s army) to end the suffering of his people as he administers ultimate judgment upon this world. These Iranian leaders carry this much farther for they believe it is their responsibility to prepare and be the tool that ushers in Mahdi’s coming.

World governments know full well what Iran is doing concerning their nuclear development, but they each play their “delicate” political games while ignoring the inevitable.

In this world—in this age of mankind—Israel is left with only one option, and as the current administration of the United States will not commit to Israel, they now know they are on their own. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly made it clear to the U.S. that “Time has run out!” This is far truer than any in this world can know.

Time has run out for Israel to wait longer, and time has run out for this world.

The Perfect Storm
This expression is gaining momentum in religious, economic, and government circles as the conditions in this world continue to worsen. What people do not understand is that there is nothing anyone can do to change the tide of what is now coming.

The entire balance of this world teeters on a precipice. Indeed it is the making of a “perfect storm,” as economic and governmental conditions are so precariously positioned throughout the world that when only one event dangerously shifts, all will be nudged into complete collapse.

Islam will no longer have to wait for a Mahdi. The United States has found no savior. Europe cannot be united. And Israel has run out of time! As a “perfect storm” continues to thunder and draw nearer to reality, a third world war will engulf this earth.

Thank God this is His “day!” Now, the “only” One Eternally Existing God will bring an end to man’s governments and man’s religions, as He commands the “Trumpets” to sound that bring about this final end and opens the way for the true Messiah of this world to come on Pentecost of 2013.

Twisting and Distorting

Sunday, September 9th, 2012

False Prophet Ronald Weinland continued his sermon series on relationships within PKG.  Mike Knopf (phonetic spelling) gave a prayer for the 2nd time in two months.  Not having heard the name previously, wondering if he’s a new rising star in PKG, or if Ron’s scraping the barrel.

Ron has updated the website.  It appears to be the same exact editorial content within a new web page template.  If there’s some technical improvement, that’s not readily evident.

Ron said that some have decided not to attend the feast.  Seems that also some have put off surgeries, since after all Christ is returning on May 27, 2012, but are now reconsidering.  If Laura’s rumored tumor is reality, doubt that she will put off surgery even though Christ is really for sure this time returning next May 19.  I expect that Ron will again this year pay the property taxes on his manse on the golf course, even though the government wouldn’t put him out before May 19.  The local government that is — the feds will likely give him a new home on October 29.

Ron mentioned that members should not criticize others for their dietary choices to refrain from certain foods.  But he’s shown that doesn’t apply to his god, as he’s demonstrated in the past.  Ron’s god also does house cleaning of rebellious members, such as happened in Toledo/Detroit back in 2000.

Ron also alluded to his legal situation, characterizing it as twisting and distorting.  Somehow the government’s long list of witnesses culminating from a multi-year investigation managed to twist and distort what Ron did.  And the reporter who heard Ron proudly acknowledge wearing while on personal business the $1700 suit paid for by the church.  Twisting and distorting.  Yes, that’s going on and we know who’s doing it.
