Here is the third biography Weinland said he would publish. Only 10 days to review and comment before the next start of the Great Tribulation.

—————- Weinland’s Post ————–

This is one of three bios of Ronald Weinland. Each one gives varying information geared uniquely to the site on which it is posted. The other two sites include the Church of God–PKG website and the Prophesied End-Time website, a book website that offers the three books he has written that are free. The last book will be published and made available in early 2016 and is entitled, Prophesy Against the Nations.

Ronald Weinland became a baptized member of God’s Church in September of 1969 in the organization of the Worldwide Church of God. His baptism at age 20 was at a time when he was just entering his senior year of college, majoring in Mathematics and Physics. In 1972, he began attending Ambassador College in Bricket Wood, England, which was one of three colleges that was established by Herbert W. Armstrong, the apostle to God’s Church. Then in 1974, he transferred to Ambassador College in Texas and graduated in May of 1975 with a degree in Theology.

He married Laura Short, whom he met at Ambassador College, and they moved to Houston, Texas, where they lived for several years, and it was there that Ronald Weinland was first ordained on Passover of 1981. Then, a year later in 1982, he was asked to become part of the full time ministry of the Worldwide Church of God. In the middle of 1994, after serving in different locations in the ministry, Ronald and Laura, along with their two children, were transferred to pastor the churches in Toledo and Findlay, Ohio.

Mr. Armstrong died in January of 1986. After his death, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr. rose to the position of replacing Mr. Armstrong as the one who would lead the Worldwide Church of God, even though he was not an apostle. By December of 1994, the same year Ronald and his family had relocated to Toledo, Ohio, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr. gave a sermon in Atlanta, Georgia, where he set out to change every major doctrine of God’s Church. It was on that day that the beginning of the Apostasy (great falling away from the truth) that was foretold by Paul occurred.

After that event, only one-third of the Church tried to hold to the truths God had delivered to them through Herbert W. Armstrong. That third consisted of approximately 31,000 baptized members who then became scattered and gradually split apart into over 600 different organizations. Another third went back to false religious practices God had originally called them out of, while the rest simply gave up on religious practice altogether.

Satan was allowed to attack God’s own Church that had become spiritually lukewarm after Mr. Armstrong’s death, and as God prophetically stated He would do, He spewed the Church out of His mouth. The Apostasy became the means through which God separated the Church from Himself and began to cleanse it. God cleansed those in His Church who would humble themselves and repent of the spirit of pride and lethargy that had led to the Church becoming lukewarm. Some began to repent immediately, and God then began gathering a remnant from all those who had been scattered in order to strengthen, mold, and fashion a people who would be made ready for Christ’s second coming. After all the destruction, confusion, and growing opposition that was developing in doctrine among all who had become scattered after that Apostasy, God worked to fully reestablish His Church by Pentecost of 1998. God did so through a small group who then took on the name describing what God was going to accomplish within them—the Church of God – Preparing for the Kingdom of God.

God made Ronald Weinland both an apostle and prophet in order to fulfill a commission He would give to him as the counterpart to John who wrote the Book of Revelation. John did not understand what he had written, as that was not given to him, since what he had written was not for his time period, but instead, was for the end-time. It is for this reason that God raised up a prophet at the end who would be the counterpart to John and who would be used to reveal to the Church and the world what God had given to John to record. John and Ronald are the only two whom God made both apostles and prophets.

God’s purpose for mankind is for all to have the potential to become part of His Family. Therefore, God is once again emphasizing the importance of family just as He has at other times throughout the past 6,000 years through those with whom He has worked. So God is now working through Ronald and his wife, Laura, to be His two end-time witnesses written about in Revelation 11 who appear on the scene at the very end of the end-time.

As part of God’s purpose to emphasize the importance of family, He has also prepared and placed both of their children into important areas of service within His Church. Their daughter, Audra, has been ordained a prophet, even as Debra was a prophet in the time of the Judges of Israel, and she has been placed to serve over the Church in the U.K., Ireland, and continental Europe. Their son, Jeremy, has been ordained to serve as an evangelist to God’s Church.

As with so many whom God has called as prophets and apostles, most all have been imprisoned and/or killed by the governments of this world. Although some history has different accounts, it is believed that all the original disciples who became God’s apostles, including Paul, were all imprisoned and killed, except for John. John was imprisoned on the Isle of Patmos by the Roman government, and it is there that he was given the Book of Revelation to write.

In like manner, and as his counterpart, Ronald Weinland was falsely imprisoned by the government of the United States for evading to pay taxes. Some of that is covered in the other bios. However, very soon now, the truth about what occurred is going to be clearly revealed. For God’s end-time prophets, God reveals there will be great power that He is going to give to both of these witnesses. God has purposed for them to become directly engaged in administering much of the correction and humbling that must take place in this world, and also within the Church that was scattered, before God sends His Son to take over the governments of this world and reign over every nation.

Just as John was in prison when given the Book of Revelation to write, God has given Ronald to write a third and final book that is entitled, Prophesy Against the Nations. This book reveals more fully why at least half the world’s population will die before Christ returns. It also reveals, however, that it is in the hands of people and nations whether an even vastly larger number of people will die in this final end-time or if hundreds of millions can be saved when catastrophic physical tribulation strikes the earth, along with a third world war that will eventually lead into a full scale nuclear war. God has directed this revelation to be sent out to the world. In addition, God has also revealed that nearly 63,000 people from the environs of the Church that was scattered can potentially be saved to live into the Millennium. It is also revealed why a much smaller number than this may survive.

Here is the second biography that Ron said he would post.
————- Weinland’s Church Site Bio ———————

Ronald Weinland is the last apostle in a long lineage of apostles, beginning with the original 12 who were established in 31 AD. He is the last apostle to God’s Church before Christ returns to establish God’s Kingdom which will reign over every nation on earth. He was preceded by Herbert W. Armstrong who was the apostle to God’s Church in the Worldwide Church of God until his death in January of 1986.

After Herbert W. Armstrong died, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr. received the control and leadership of the Worldwide Church of God, although he was not an apostle. In the early 1990′s, as a matter of Church government, this man began to change many of the ways Mr. Armstrong had led the Church. He also began to make subtle changes in several Church teachings. Then, in December of 1994, he gave a sermon to the Church where he set out to change every major doctrine of God’s Church. He was later revealed to be the prophesied “man of sin” and “son of perdition” that Paul wrote about in 2 Thessalonians 2. Paul explained that this man who would betray Jesus Christ would have to be revealed within the Church before Christ would return.

God revealed that this man of sin was also the antichrist that John specifically made reference to later in his ministry when he spoke of many antichrists coming on the scene within the environment of the Church. This “man of sin” and “son of perdition” was made known by God after He revealed His judgment against him. Exactly 280 days later, to the very hour, from when he had declared that God’s Sabbaths were no longer required for God’s people, God took his life.

That number did not go unnoticed by those with whom God was working to reestablish a remnant for His Church after two-thirds of the people had left Church, and the other third had become scattered into over 600 different organizations following that prophesied Apostasy. The number seven is used by God to reveal “that which is complete,” as in the seven day week, the seven annual Holy Days, etcetera. The number 40 is used to reveal “God’s judgment.” The combination of 7 times 40 gives a total count of 280 days—fully revealing God’s complete judgment executed against this son of perdition, the man of sin.

After the Apostasy, a third of the Church that had become scattered was protected from Satan for the next 1,260 days, as it was revealed in Revelation that God would do so. That period of protection for the scattered Church ended on Pentecost of 1998 when God had then reestablished His Church in only one of the many scattered groups. It was a small remnant group that took on the name of the “Church of God –Preparing for the Kingdom of God.” God not only made Ronald Weinland the last apostle to His Church at the end-time, but He also made him a prophet. God and Jesus Christ had made only one other apostle a prophet, and that was John who was given to record the Book of Revelation.

God gave Ronald Weinland to be John’s counterpart and also gave to him to be both an apostle and prophet, whose commission has included revealing what John had written. That which John recorded was not for him to understand and it was not for his time, but it was for this very end-time, and that necessitated sending a prophet who would reveal what God had given to John. Some of the very prophecies John wrote were about God’s two witnesses who would not come on the scene until the very end-time. God has made both Ronald Weinland and his wife to be His two end-time witnesses who are spoken of in Revelation 11 and in the Book of Zechariah.

Although most of those from the third of the Church that was scattered after the Apostasy are looking for the opening of the First Seal, they do not understand that all Seven Seals of Revelation have already been opened, and that we have already entered the very end of the end-time. The Seven Trumpets of the Seventh Seal are all that remain to be physically fulfilled before Christ returns to rule this earth. Those Trumpets will begin to become manifest in great physical tribulation throughout this earth at various points between the 8th of November in 2015 and Pentecost on the 9th of June in 2019, at which time Christ will return to this earth.

The Church originally had been given Pentecost of 2012 as the timing for Christ’s coming, and when he did not return, it was believed that Christ might instead return on Pentecost of 2013. During that year, however, God was not showing “why” Jesus Christ had not returned, and it was not until some time later that God began to reveal the reasons why He had moved all prophetic end-time events forward by exactly seven years. That story is included in Ronald Weinland’s third book, entitled, Prophesy Against the Nations.

As John was given the Book of Revelation to record while imprisoned by the Roman government on the Isle of Patmos, Ronald Weinland was given to write this third book while falsely imprisoned by the government of the United States for evading the payment of taxes. This third book fulfills a specific prophecy in the Book of Revelation. It also reveals God’s last warning to those of His Church who were scattered after the Apostasy. Although it also reveals God’s last warnings to all nations, it gives specific nations encouragement to accept His intervention to help and to even save millions.

From the time of the Apostasy to the return of Jesus Christ on Pentecost of 2019, there will have been 7 prophetic end-time periods of 1,260 days fulfilled. These and many other incredible numerical counts to Christ’s coming are also covered in that third book which will be fully ready for publishing and distribution in 9 languages by early 2016.

Here’s is a posting from Weinland’s website, he indicated he would be putting up as posts copies of his biography for his book. Here is a reposting of this for your comments.

He repeats the tired argument about why he was imprisoned, already disproven before his sentencing from trial testimony.

—– Weinland’s bio ——————————

Ronald Weinland, an author whose books have gone into over 170 countries and 9 languages, is first and foremost an apostle to the One Almighty Eternal God. Preceded by Herbert W. Armstrong who led the Worldwide Church of God until his death in 1986, Ronald Weinland is an apostle in a long lineage of God’s apostles, beginning with the original 12 who began their work in 31 AD, long before others emerged falsely calling themselves Christian.

Ronald Weinland is the last apostle in this final age of mankind’s self-rule. That self-rule will end with the second coming of Jesus Christ who returns to put an end to WW III and bring peace to this earth—peace which mankind has been unable to achieve for the past 6,000 years. Jesus Christ came the first time, nearly 2,000 years ago, as God’s Passover Lamb who made possible the forgiveness of sins for mankind. This time, Christ is coming as a “Lion” with great power to chasten, battle, and conquer those who are destroying the earth. He will then establish a one-world government—God’s government—under his reign in peace for the next 1,000 years.

Historical accounts have some variance, but it is believed that most all of the original apostles, including Paul who was the apostle to the gentiles, were imprisoned and eventually killed. The last apostle to write scripture was John, who was also a prophet, and while imprisoned on the Isle of Patmos, it was revealed to him what was to be written in the Book of Revelation. Ronald Weinland is the only other apostle who has also been made a prophet by God and Jesus Christ. He is the counterpart to John, in that John was given knowledge to record the Book of Revelation for the end-time, and Ronald Weinland was given the “meaning” and the responsibility to declare that “meaning” in these books, other writings, and in a vast number of recorded speeches (sermons) and interviews.

Since the days of John, nearly 1,900 years ago, God’s true Church has not been accustomed to having a prophet, but God made Ronald Weinland a prophet in 1997. The first book, The Prophesied End-Time, published in mid-2004, is the product of what God gave to him, revealed through Christ, concerning the beginning fulfillment of prophetic end-time events that were to begin first in God’s own Church—events that began to occur in December of 1994 with the opening of the First Seal of Revelation. Since most in the world have not readily known of God’s true Church, they are fully unaware that these events involved the opening of the first six seals of Revelation. It is also revealed how 9/11 was a major fulfillment of the Sixth Seal, and a “prophetic type” of what is yet to follow on a vastly larger scale.

His second book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness, begins to pinpoint the timing and unfold the remainder of major end-time events, building upon what the first book covered. This book reveals the opening of the Seventh Seal (the last seal to be opened), which occurred in 2008, and reveals the meaning of the Seven Trumpets that are contained in that Seventh Seal. It also reveals the Seven Thunders of Revelation, which John was forbidden to record. However, it also needs to be made clear that all initial timing mentioned in this book has been moved forward by exactly seven years.

These final end-time events that will plunge mankind into a third world war began to be set in place with the opening of the Seventh Seal of Revelation in 2008. These events have begun with a great shaking in the world’s economic system in late 2008 and early 2009. What began at that point has been moved forward to continue at the end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 in a powerful resurgence of economic calamity that will plunge the world into a free-fall of final economic destruction.

That first phase of a great economic collapse that set the stage for what was to follow was only temporarily delayed by quantitative easing which has actually been working to more fully bloat a fatally flawed system that will lead the world into a far more horrific global collapse. That collapse will now be much more devastating than if it had originally occurred in late 2008 and early 2009. These final prophecies reveal the collapse of the U.S. Dollar, as well as the very rapid decline and then ultimate destruction of the United States itself. The final great war prophesied will enter its greatest period of destruction with nuclear weapons that will occur between a temporarily united European union of ten nations and the main axis powers of both Russia and China, as well as several lesser nations that will ally with them.

Ronald Weinland is the last apostle to be sent to this world, and as such, God has established through him a final testimony (witness) of mankind’s true attitude and spirit toward God Himself. This has been made manifest (revealed) through “the many” who have turned in bitterness, hatred, disgust, mockery, ridicule, and slander toward the one whom God has sent to this world with His final warnings and judgment.

Much of mankind’s true attitude has also been revealed through Ronald Weinland’s trial and imprisonment by the government of the United States. He began serving his sentence in February of 2013 with a release date in February of 2016. God has established the true spirit of mankind through the ages by how His prophets and apostles have been treated and judged, with so many of them being imprisoned and many even killed.

Ronald Weinland was accused and convicted of purposefully evading the payment of taxes to the federal government. This accusation was made towards someone who believes and teaches that they themselves and the members of the Church are to be responsible toward the government of the nation in which they live. The Church holds a strong and most basic doctrine that they are to be just as faithful to pay their taxes in that nation as they would be in faithfully paying their tithes to God. It was imputed by the court that many of the expenses declared as Church expenses could not be declared as such, but were instead declared to be personal expenses, and therefore, the reimbursement of those expenses were counted as income on which taxes should have been paid. There were only two primary expense items that gave the government a large enough dollar amount that was legally required of them before they could bring forth such an indictment whereby they could then pursue prosecution. Yet both of those were legitimate expenses because they were based on Church beliefs and legitimate religious practices for God’s Church, but the government rejected these and did not allow them to be claimed as such by the Church. Expenses declared were not personal, but were a matter of those Church beliefs and religious practices.

The main dollar amount was $300,000 in Church money, which was moved to a bank in Switzerland. This was made to look sinister by the government, even though it was told to the Church in 2002 that money would be placed there in Ronald Weinland’s personal name in order to give the Church the ability to continue to function during a third world war that would engulf the world in the final years of the end-time (which will now begin at some point after October of 2015 and before June of 2019).

This movement of money to Switzerland was due to the prophetic belief that the U.S. Dollar will collapse during those final years, and that this meager amount of funds could then be used to continue doing a “religious work” that could be aided by those funds deposited in Switzerland. Due to events that transpired in large part during WW II, the nation of Switzerland had been believed to be a location that would once again be considered a “safe zone” for securing deposits during another world war. However, since late 2015, and the fact that God moved all end-time catastrophic events and WW III forward by exactly seven years, God has also revealed that the prophetic outcome for many nations has also been changed. This includes Switzerland, which will now suffer far more mightily in this final end-time period, and will not be a safe haven for any finances in the world.

The second book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness, explains what people must do if they want to survive this last war—an all out nuclear war—and live on into a new age that God will give to mankind. This also includes those of God’s own Church that became scattered after the Apostasy, as they must come to be humbled and receive those whom God has sent to them.

Just as God revealed to John what was to be recorded in the Book of Revelation while imprisoned by the Roman government on the Isle of Patmos, God has given Ronald Weinland more understanding of those prophesies, and they have been written by him while in prison. The new book, entitled, Prophesy Against the Nations, will be published and made available beginning in early 2016. This book reveals the reasons why God moved forward all end-time events by exactly seven years and what is more specifically directed to all people and nations of the world concerning prophesied catastrophic events directed toward them. This book reveals how God has now made it possible that many more millions can be saved alive through this end-time so that they can live on into a new age of peace, as Christ rules the nations for the next 1,000 years.

This book also explains how at least 3.5 billion people will die from all the catastrophic events that will occur, which includes a massive nuclear war that will cause the greatest destruction and death. It also explains how that number of deaths can become much higher, surpassing 6 billion people. Yet on the other hand, this book also reveals there is the potential to instead save the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

This book also reveals that just as God moved all end-time events forward by seven years, He has also altered the potential outcome of what can now happen in many different nations. There are some very specific nations that God now addresses whose destruction and death can be reduced mightily from what had previously been judged to take place against them before 2012. Those nations are specifically addressed in this third and last book.

Post Feast Focus

Friday, October 9th, 2015

More hocus-pocus for Ron’s follower’s to focus upon.

————-  Weinland’s Post —————-

As always, the Feast of Tabernacles seems to go by so quickly, and then everyone is thrust right back into the world. This is a follow-up to the final message that I gave on the Last Great Day.

Most have now returned from the Feast and are back into their normal routines of life. Those who were able to attend a Feast site had a brief break from this world and a taste of the Millennium that is now very rapidly approaching. Often, after experiencing the Feast, there can be a real let down. In one way, some of that let down should be a healthy part of one’s experience since it magnifies the contrast between the way of this sick world and the Millennium we long to see established.

However, that let down should be an experience that passes quickly as we then recognize the need to once again become sharply focused on all that is yet before us. As everyone is returning to their routines, let’s all strive to make this year one of sharp spiritual focus.

We only have a little less than a month remaining of this Year of Dedication. Our focus needs to first be on finishing this year with zeal. Strive to put more into your spiritual relationship with God as you work to become even more dedicated to serving Him faithfully and zealously all the way up to Christ’s coming. We do not know all that fully lies ahead for us, but we need to be strong and courageous as we press forward to finish the work God has given us to do.

At the end of his sermon, “Give Thanks and Rejoice,” Jeremy made a reference to this special Year of Dedication. He had just gone through the story of Solomon and the dedication of the temple. I’m going to quote what he stated:

“So, this year we have been going through our own dedication as well, a final part of the measuring of the temple. We are doing something similar to what happened back then (the physical dedication of the temple), however, it’s even more important. Let’s look at a section from the post from after last year’s Feast, entitled, ‘A Year of Dedication.’”

He then quoted from a paragraph in that post, and here is that quote:

“In reviewing what God has revealed, the last year for the measuring of the temple is to be a ‘Year of Dedication’ for God’s Church. It will be a year of preparation (PKG) for the great work that yet lies ahead and the actual coming of Jesus Christ in his Kingdom. We will be working to more fully dedicate God’s house—the temple of God—our lives with God and Christ dwelling in us—through prayer as we actively seek and apply ourselves (in work) to fully offer up sacrifices (of self) on the altar before God. Much of what this will actually involve in the lives of God’s people will be covered more thoroughly in the series that follows.”

That which Jeremy was focusing upon and the quote that followed say so very much. As I just mentioned, we have a little less than a month remaining in this very special year. Make it the most zealous month of them all, as you focus on dedicating yourself even more so to God, and then once this month is over, don’t just quit applying yourself, but be determined to continue utilizing many of the tools you have been developing as part of your routine. Seek to continue to draw closer to God as you work to offer up even more of self in sacrifice upon the altar before God. Why stop seeking to more fully dedicate our lives once this year has come to a close? Instead, this is the time to really press forward.

On another note, we are already planning for next year’s Feast, and I believe we will have one. You can be praying about the preparations and planning that need to go into it. We do not know all that lies ahead of us in the sense of “when” major catastrophic end-time events are going to begin. It appears we may well have some time—perhaps at least a year—before some of the really bad things begin that would otherwise prevent us from gathering together at a site. Although we may begin to experience some very difficult things around us, I believe God is showing us that we may well have the ability to still come together for at least one more year and possibly two. That is the focus we need to have for this next year. At some point, we will not have such freedom and we cannot begin to imagine what that fully means.

The new book is timely in all of this as well. It will not likely be ready for publication until I am back home, so I am expecting it to be early in the year. If it does come out at this time, it will be a great benefit to the Church and it will be a great spiritual boost at a time that can be a little more difficult. This is due to the long stretch of time from the Feast period to the Passover observances.

So please be praying about the progress of the book, which includes the editing and final refining of it, as well as the work involved in translating it into the other eight languages. Those involved in all of this truly have need of your prayers. You should find what is written in it to be exceedingly exciting and a boost to enhance our spiritual focus and purpose that yet remains in front of us. The book has an important title that is itself scriptural and very prophetic: Prophesy Against the Nations.

Once I am back home, there will be sermons that will be given that help magnify and explain more thoroughly to the Church what has been written concerning what God has revealed in it. One especially important focus will be on the revelation that there is potential for many prophetic events to change, and this primarily involves the last three trumpets.

In addition, I also want to mention that there will be three posts that I’ve written that will be posted after this one. They are not long, and each week we will post a new one. These are personal bios and will replace the two that are currently posted on two sites which currently are exactly the same. The Church site has not contained a bio, but we are now going to add one to it. The first post we are sending out is a rewrite of the one that had recently been placed on the book website.

The reason we are posting these is because each one is different from the other, as each is geared to the site where it will be placed. We want you to be aware of the change and think that you will find them informative, especially when considering what is soon going to begin happening in this world and the work we will be doing within this upcoming 7th prophetic end-time period of 1,260 days before Christ returns.

More Carrots From the Weinland Family Business

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015

Weinland promised to have his Last Great Day sermon posted mid-feast, now the last day of the feast as the Last Great Day is technically separate.

So but anyway, here it finally is. A few minor surprises.

—– Ron Weinland’s Last Great Day Message for October 5, 2015 ————

Hello once again to everyone, this now being the Last Great Day of the Feast. It’s amazing how fast, I know, it seems for all of you, probably, how things passing sometimes go. But anyway, I’m excited to be able to bring you this closing sermon today. It likely won’t be long, like I mentioned earlier on the first opening day there. It’ll be more like a mini-sermon. So, anyway, maybe a little more challenging than the opening day welcome because I get so many interruptions in the hallways and so forth and Jeremy has several segments now he has to put together because I only have about 15-minutes maximum – actually a little less than that with all the interruptions), on the system here, but about that much time for a particular recording. So I don’t know how much this is going to end up being, but again, it will be more of a mini-sermon.

(more…)
