Power, Signs, and Lying Wonders

Recently I  received a file which appears to have been distributed to the PKG membership.  It is a chart that attempts to show Ron’s latest timeline nonsense, but is full of inconsistencies within itself and shows a lack of understanding of Ron’s statements (to the extent that Ron’s statements are understandable).  Below is a copy of the chart which I have annotated with the red and yellow graphics to show most of these errors.  With all the errors, it’s rather busy.


One thing the chart points out is that Laura’s birthday (on the Roman calendar) is the same day that Ron is scheduled to be released from prison.  I was able to verify both of these event occur next February 17.  Perhaps Ron will explain in a future blog post the prophetic significance of that coincidence.

From Ron’s blog post “Measuring the Temple PT 2“:

1) From the Apostasy on December 17, 1994, the man of sin, the son of perdition, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr., died exactly “280 days” after he initiated it – to the hour – which signified “God’s Judgment” upon him.

This is shown correctly on the chart.  However, the “to the hour” claim has previously been disproved.  Yet PKG still puts that lie out.

2) From the Apostasy up to Pentecost of 1998, the first prophetic cycle of 1260 days was fulfilled.

Counting 1260 days from Dec 17, 1994 is 5/30/1998.  That date is shown correctly on the chart. However, Pentecost of 1998 was on May 31, not May 30 as labeled on the chart.

3) From the Apostasy up to Pentecost 2012 there are 6,370 days. This consists of three prophetic numerical combinations of 7 x 70 x 13.

Counting 6370 days from Dec 17, 1994 is 5/26/2012.  Yet if you look at the chart, it has day 6370 on 5/27/2012.  How did that happen?

4) The final period for the completion of the sealing of the 144,000 was from Trumpets of 2008 (Sept. 30) to Pentecost of 2012 (May 27).

This part is about the only part that’s consistent on the chart.

5) The first phase of God’s work following the Apostasy covers 6,370 days, which includes a total of five equivalent periods of 1260 days that equals 6,300 days, with a remainder of 70 days.

The chart maker shows this 70-day period as 10/6/2008 through 12/14/2008.  However, the chart maker puts 10/5/2008 off on its own, not part of any 1260-day or 70-day period.  This may have something to do with the confusion.

6) Beginning with Pentecost 2012, the combined period of 42 months along with the final seventh cycle of 1260 days ends during the Days of Unleavened Bread in 2019. Not only that, but more importantly, it ends on the day of the “wave-sheaf offering” from when the count for Pentecost begins.

“Beginning with Pentecost of 2012” would put day 1 of the 6th cycle or period on 5/27/2012, and day 1260 of the 6th period on 11/7/2015.  The 7th period would begin on 11/8/2015 and end on 4/20/2019.  But the wave sheaf offering is on 4/21/2019.

7) The time from Pentecost 2012 to the wave-sheaf offering in 2019 is 2,520 days (1260 plus 1260). There are 2,570 days from Pentecost 2012 to the Day of Pentecost in 2019. This leaves exactly “50 days” that God has established as a final numerical sign of His work to establish His Son as King of kings.

The first sentence of this statement is actually correct: from 5/27/2012 to 4/21/2019 is 2520 days.  However, the second statement is incorrect: from 5/27/2012 to 6/9/2019 is 2569 days.  From the day before Pentecost of 2012 to Pentecost of 2019 is 2570 days.  Ron got shifted by a day.

From Ron’s blog post “Year of Dedication“:

The last year of the “sixth period” of 1,260 days in the measuring of the temple begins on the 6th of November 2014, and it will end on the 7th of November 2015. Then, on the following day, the “seventh period” and the primary work of God’s two witnesses will begin.

First you have to wonder how Ron came up with a year that’s a year and two days long on the Roman calendar.  But the calendar is pretty flexible for Ron.

The chart has the 6th period ending on November 8, not on November 7.  And has the seventh period beginning on November 9, 2015 instead of November 8.    However the count of 1260 for 4/20/2019 is consistent with day 1 being November 8.  How did that happen?

God also revealed that the Seventh Seal of Revelation was opened on November 14th of 2008 and that 30 days later, the First Trumpet sounded (Dec. 14, 2008), and “God’s final witness” began.

One quick check that can be done on the chart is to see what the what days of the week the starting and ending days of each period are.  The starting day should always be a Sunday, and the ending day should be a Saturday (except for the last 50-day period).  Periods of length 70 days and 1260 days are evenly divisible by 7 and are therefore a multiple number of weeks.  If your computer is Windows, then you have handy a calendar covering all these dates.  Just click on the date on the right side of the lower bar and navigate the calendar as though you were going to to change the computer’s time setting.

The chart appears to have been generated as a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel.  I believe it quite probable that Ron has gone overtime using that program over the years.  Excel has a feature that will calculate the number of days between any two dates.  It can also be used to take a starting date and calculate a date a given number of days away.  I think Ron has put together most of his timelines using Excel.

However, I doubt that Ron is the one who put the chart together.  The Bureau of Prisons probably does not provide a computer with expensive Microsoft Office software to its inmates.  The chart was probably put together by one of his minions, my likely candidate is Wayne Matthews. Another suspect is Audra. But then maybe Ron did put it together — during the time between his sentencing and reporting to prison while wearing the GPS ankle bracelet of humility.

I also know how to use Microsoft Excel to calculate dates.  I am not motivated to use this tool to come up with signs and lying wonders like Ron does, but I can use it to check things out.  Here is an image of the spreadsheet I generated from Ron’s nonsense, to the extent that it can be understood.  The day counts are generated by Excel formulas that calculate the number of days between the date to the left of the cell and the date preceding the block which is outline with the darker border.  For example the count of 1260 for 5/30/1998 is calculated by the number of days from 12/17/1994 to 5/30/1998.  I used it to stack up periods of 70, 1260, and 50 days following 12/17/1994.

chart_regenIt shows that there are indeed seven 1260-day periods with an extra 70 days and 50 days from “the apostasy” to Pentecost of 2019.

While it is possible to make honest errors when putting an Excel spreadsheet together and I think our unknown chart maker made quite a few, I also suspect some deliberate adjustments in the formulas given the counts that would shift by a day in the middle of different periods.

The best that can be made of this is that the chart maker did make honest errors.  But the chart maker is a bumbling incompetent trying to make a chart from Ron’s poor explanations.  For a timeline based on speculation in the first place.

Power, signs, and lying wonders.  While God is not the author of confusion, Ron and his minions are.  I wonder if the chart confused any PKG members enough to get them to leave.

I challenge anyone to find a Biblical basis for these timelines. Ron’s blog post “Measuring the Temple PT 2” that outlined these timelines had no scriptural reference.  Where is it stated in the Bible that these date relationships prove that Christ is going to return?  Sad that so many are destroying their futures following those who are at best incompetent speculators.

Power, signs, and lying wonders.

A Final Stretch

Ron has a new posting up.  “A Final Stretch” is more appropriate than “The Final Stretch”.  Because with Ron there will be a string of “Final Stretches” until he’s no longer able to declare them.

———————— Weinland’s Posting —————–

As of this post, there are about three months remaining until this year’s Feast of Tabernacles begins. Before you know it, we will be observing the Last Great Day of the Feast. Every year we are blessed to observe the Feast of Tabernacles, but to our knowledge there has only been one time EVER that the Church has been blessed to observe a special Year of Dedication as we are doing now.

We are near the three-quarter mark in this very unique observance. In this post, I am going to use a “race” as an analogy to this year because there are some comparable lessons that can benefit us mightily. It is often near this three-quarter marker in a race that one can begin to tire to the point that the battle in the mind becomes the greatest. In a real race the battle is on a physical plane concerning how the mind reacts. In this unique year the battle is one that is on a spiritual plane concerning how the mind reacts to what we are currently doing and how this year will be completed. It is at this point in a race that choices are often made that determine the final outcome for the rest of the race, just as it is in this special year we are observing.

At this marker in a race, a person can begin to let up, give in, and slow down by starting to exercise less effort. It is even here that some actually just quit and give up entirely. It is somewhat like fasting itself where a person simply quits at some point in the fast and decides to do it at some other time or not at all. Fasting also can indeed be likened to a race because of the battle against self – against one’s own mind – is very similar in nature.

So whether or not one begins to let down, or ceases to focus and fight as one should, is a matter that is solely in each individual’s hands, and in no one else’s. Instead of letting our human nature begin to take control by allowing less of an effort to be put into the time that is remaining, now is the time to actually fight against our human nature even more. This has much to do with a genuine exercise of humility and the practice of fasting itself.

It is at this very marker that a person should fight against self more than at any other previous point in the race. This is the time when one can actually dig deeper and become more resolved to actually put greater effort and determination into a far more successful and meaningful completion. This is now the place in the race that becomes more important than any other.

So it is often at this very juncture in a race that the real battle begins, concerning how we are going to fare in the remainder of what is yet before us. The distance or time that is yet before us in this Year of Dedication will largely determine the actual true success and overall spiritual benefit that will come from this entire year. It is not how we began this year or how we have fought up to this point, but it is far more about how we continue on and finish what we started!

This is not the time to let up, but a time to press forward to the end for a potentially great spiritual year for each of us. It is not the time to begin becoming complacent, weary, or lukewarm in spirit. Instead, this is the time to focus even more on our quest to more fully dedicate the time that is remaining to that of growing more spiritually and to developing a far closer relationship with God Almighty, Jesus Christ, and with one another.

This post is rather short, but it is very much to the point and it truly says a great deal. This message is vitally important to every member of the body as to how each person continues in this very important year that will also conclude the sixth cycle of 1,260 days, which is the conclusion of what this sixth cycle has been all about – the measuring of the Temple of God.

Health Update

It’s 3 weeks and 2 days since False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s last posting.  Here’s another one, but it’s not about prophecy but rather a personal one from God’s most formidable prophet.

————— Ron’s posting ———————————————————

This post is to inform everyone about my heart attack and the recovery process since then. Although some of this information may have gone out when this first happened, I will go over the events in the order in which they occurred.

For about three months, I had known that I was experiencing something new that I had never experienced before. On the job I have been working at in carpentry (working inside the shop and in outside construction), we handle a fairly hard workload most of the time. We do a lot of remodeling work, but often, before we are able to get to that point, we have to tear out old areas first. That can require a lot of heavy work when it comes to some of the older homes here that we work on from time to time, so this often involves tearing down sections of a house and then rebuilding them. We have also been involved in tearing off old siding and putting on new, as well as re-shingling (roofing) some buildings.

There is a lot of variety in other projects that we get involved in as well, such as cutting down some fairly good-sized trees and then taking them to a sawmill where we cut the logs into usable lumber. Much of that is with some higher quality wood such as black walnut, cherry, Kentucky coffee bean, and some others that are a little more common. Some of that work requires a lot more exertion.

Over the past few months, there have been times when I felt a kind of burning sensation in my upper chest when I’ve been working more strenuously, but I thought it may have something to do with allergies and that it may also be some kind of asthma type of condition. Since I really have never experienced asthma, I thought that possibly things from this area of the country could be affecting me differently from where we live. Whenever I felt this burning, I would simply tell the others what was happening and that I needed to rest a little bit until it would go away, which would generally last only a few minutes.

Since I did have a heart attack ten years ago, I also wanted to rule out the possibility of it having to do with my heart, so I stopped by the medical unit here at the prison to talk to them about it. It was my intent to go to them whenever this burning was occurring and have them check me out. We agreed that when this happened that this would be the best time to do so, as otherwise, nothing would probably show up. But we generally worked too far away from the medical unit and by the time I would get there, the burning would be over.

However, on the 28th of May, we were working on some things right here in the units where we live, which was only about 100 feet away from the medical offices. After exerting myself quite a bit physically by removing metal attachments to some walls with the use of crowbars, I began to have a burning sensation, but this time it got a lot worse and I knew what it was because it was the same as what I had experienced nearly ten years earlier with my first heart attack. This time, however, it was much worse and many times more painful. They took me into the medical office right away and began giving me some nitro tablets under my tongue. I think they gave me four tablets over the course of a half hour from the initial attack to when the ambulance finally came. Once I got to the hospital, the pain of the attack became far greater. They didn’t waste much time and gave me a couple of tests where they determined that I had some blocked arteries. They continued to give me some nitro when the pain became so intense and reoccurring so rapidly. It was the only thing that seemed to lessen the pain I was experiencing.

The last thing I remember was when they were getting ready to transfer me from the portable bed to the operating table. However, after I woke up in the intensive care unit of the hospital, several nurses and some doctors who came around began to fill me in on what had taken place. One of the first that I talked to was a cardiac nurse who asked me what I remembered and if I remembered what I had said when, at one point, I sat up and spoke to them. I explained that the last thing I remembered was when they were getting ready to transfer me from the portable bed to the operating table, but I did not actually remember them doing the actual transfer.

This nurse informed me that on the operating table (but at what specific point, I am not sure) I sat up and said that I was going to die. Then I laid down and immediately flatlined (my heart stopped). They told me that at that point they announced over the hospital system a “code blue,” which was to notify all those who had anything to do with giving me defibrillation (electric shock therapy to start the heart) to get to their station and do so. They gave me the jolt I needed to get my heart going again. I have no idea how much time passed, but I think I understood them to say it took a couple of times to do this to get my heart started again. I’m not sure I have explained all this in a correct manner medically, but in my understanding, this is the best that I can relay what I was told.

They inserted a stent in order to open up one of the main arteries which they told me is referred to as the “widow maker,” since there are not many who survive such an attack. That primary artery was 100 percent blocked. They also said I have two other arteries that need to be opened. One is 100 percent blocked and the other is 85 percent blocked. They did not try to open those two at that time because of the stress that my body and heart had just experienced. They want me to have a little more time in order for me to regain strength before opening those two arteries. Hopefully, it doesn’t take a long time to get this taken care of, but knowing what I do, it might be a long time, or not at all while I’m here.

Nevertheless, God gave me the strength and ability to do some pretty hard work for quite a while, even with three highly blocked arteries. It rather dumbfounds me that I was able to work to the degree that I was.

Yet in all this, as everyone should strongly know, my life is fully in God’s hands, just as with everyone who has been called, begotten, and is then yielding to God’s purpose in their life. This has happened to me as a part of God’s purpose in what He intends to accomplish and produce through it, as well as it occurring precisely in His timing of those things He is working out. There has already been some incredible good that has come out of this, which will be revealed more fully at a later time. Although it was a pretty rough and difficult thing to experience (as my pain tolerance is not high, and this was extremely painful), it is truly nothing compared to the good that it has already produced. We should all keep that in mind and realize that in those things we experience of hardships, trials, and pain, that often others can be helped and/or strengthened by our experience. Then of course, we too can learn personally and become more fully perfected through such things we may go through in life, and especially in how we go through them.

It is a very true and inspiring thing that Paul wrote when he basically stated in Romans that when our lives are in God’s hands, everything will work together for that which is good. That includes the trials, hardships and pain we experience in this human life. That “good” may be, and often is, to the benefit of others, and often it is to our benefit for what it can mold and fashion in our being – in our thinking and in our mind.

After the heart attack, on that following Monday, I was released to return to this prison camp. This Thursday, it will be two weeks since the heart attack and I am doing quite well at this point in my recovery. On occasion, I get a little light-headed and must rest when that occurs. I’ve had one occasion where I broke out in a sweat and felt that my heart was acting up somewhat, but by the time someone in the medical unit hooked me up for an EKG it had stopped and probably lasted only about twenty minutes total. I’m walking short distances each day and getting a lot of rest as I recover. There is a great work ahead and I know I will be fully ready when that time comes. Our lives are in God’s great care, and regardless of what might happen to any of us, even if it is death, the Church of God continues on and our future is still in God’s great care and timing.

For so many of you who have done so (those whom we know of and those whom we do not), thank you for your concern, love, and prayers that you have shown toward me and my family.

Heart Attack Redux

According to sources including a comment left on the blog, False Prophet Ronald Weinland suffered a heart attack last Thursday, May 28.  This was not his first heart attack, as he had one on or about August 4, 2005 and was out of commission for 5 weeks recovering from triple bypass heart surgery.  Word is that he returned to prison yesterday and is to have stents put in after he gets stronger.  Some skepticism on that from some quarters.  Perhaps he had urgently needed angioplasty in one area of the heart and they see some other areas that are marginal but not urgent.

Other speculation is that he died already.  And yet other speculation that he will get an early release in 2015.  In answer to both of those, the Bureau of Prisons inmate locator shows him to be incarcerated at Terre Haute FCI with a release date next February 17.  I personally doubt that he will leave the prison system before that date unless it is feet first.  Which I don’t expect.

What I consider more likely is that he would be transferred to a prison hospital, such as the Lexington FMC which is only a couple of hours commute for the Silent Witness from their home on the golf course.

Looking for prophetic significance, August 4, 2005 to May 28, 2015 is exactly 512 weeks.  Which is 2-to-the-ninth-power weeks.  Must be some significance in that.

While some are looking to this as a sign of God punishing Weinland, I don’t see that.  It’s just Weinland with a bad heart.  Herbert Armstrong was a bigger false prophet than Weinland and abused more people.  Weinland never told people to avoid medical care and never a whiff of sexual improprieties.  Armstrong probably evaded more in taxes than Weinland.  Yet Herbert Armstrong died in his own bedroom in his 90’s without having all the plagues of Revelation visited on him.

A few months after Ron’s heart attack in 2005, he announced that he is a biblical character.  Wonder if there will be a redux of that too.  Perhaps Jesus.  Rather doubt it, but if he did I think many of his remaining followers would believe it.

JD left a comment:

People are upset in pkg.  Ron had a massive heart attack last Thursday and people are just finding out and are upset because it has been keep under wraps.  maybe the big wigs think people will start running for the doors if their mighty leader has fallen yet again.    Hmmmmmm maybe Ron is one of the ones who is scheduled to die for not repenting.  Has to start somewhere.

I’ll try to have more information later.

Pentecost 2015

False Prophet Ronald Weinland has a new post up, over 3 weeks since the last.  Seems that Ron has been using up his #2’s on occasional blog posts and therefore will not be writing a third book.

——————  Ronnie’s Post reposted here for your comments ——————–

This will be the third Pentecost that God’s Church will have observed since Pentecost of 2012, the date we had previously believed was Christ’s return. This will also be the last Pentecost in this current sixth cycle of 1260 days in the measuring of the Temple of God – the Church. In the fourth Pentecost from this one, in 2019, we believe that the “complete count” to the actual coming of Christ and the Firstfruits (the 144,000) of God will be fulfilled.

In considering these cycles of time, we have come a long way since that first one. That first cycle began with the Apostasy (December 17, 1994) and led up to the reestablishment of God’s true remnant Church on Pentecost of 1998 (exactly 1260 days later). The count to the coming of God’s Son to reign in His Kingdom, and over this earth, began on the exact day that He had predetermined long, long ago. Though we know these things, it is highly worthy, at this very time, that we review some matters regarding timing in order to come to more deeply grasp and appreciate their greater meaning and importance.

God’s Glory Being Revealed
Today, on a weekly Sabbath, as my family is continuing on with God’s work in the Church by meeting together with the brethren and the ministry in Europe, I read a sermon given by Johnny Harrell. In that sermon, he covers what Christ addresses in Matthew 12 regarding the only sign that would be given that he was the Messiah. It was that the son of man would be in the grave for precisely three days and three nights. That timing was precise and exactly as God predetermined, as with all His planning and His execution of those plans.

Such works of God glorify Him and His great majesty the more we come to see what He fulfills and the manner in which He does so. In this account concerning Christ’s death, the exact time he was in the grave was not the only precise timing fulfilled. A specific year was also chosen that then occurred (31 AD), as were the days of the week that everything should happen, even down to the very hour. All was meticulously planned and brought to pass. First, the time that Christ kept the last required observance for eating a Passover lamb with his disciples. Then, the time to institute a new Passover observance and the time needed to teach the disciples things in that one night that revealed God’s greater purpose for Christ becoming our Passover so that sin can be forgiven.

One of the most astounding things Christ taught and began to reveal on that night concerns a very great truth that has only been restored to God’s remnant Church in this end-time. It is the 35th Truth, which states: “We understand that Jesus Christ is ‘continuously coming’ in the flesh of those who are in the Church of God.” This truth that Christ taught on Passover night, which would result in one being able to be forgiven of sin through our Passover, reveals God’s great purpose of being able to dwell (abide, live, continue) in His Church – in His Temple.

Then there was more that followed in that same day on the 14th of Abib, with the betrayal and arrest of Jesus Christ, then a heinous trial that condemned him to death, and finally, the hideous beating he received. All these things had to progress in a timely manner. All had to happen exactly as it did and when it did, even the timing of when Christ was impaled on a pole, and when the spear pierced his side in order to spill out his blood upon the earth, and when the veil of the temple was torn in two. This all led to him finally being taken down from the pole, some preparation being made for his burial, and then him being placed into the tomb in the exact hour needed in order to fulfill all that was necessary for him to become our Passover and much more.

The time in which Christ had to die, to the time in which he was placed into the tomb, to the moment of his resurrection had to be exact. All these accounts had to be accomplished fitting into the correct time of the week and the hour for the wave-sheaf offering to be fulfilled by him as he ascended to God and was accepted by Him as the fulfillment of that wave-sheaf, the first of the firstfruits into God’s Family.

All these events surrounding the fulfillment of Passover by Jesus Christ, his resurrection, and then his fulfillment of the wave-sheaf offering required awesome planning and coordination. It also required powerful direct involvement and work by God that had to be accomplished in the lives and affairs of many people during that period. Not only that, but all this began long before Jesus Christ was ever born. The actual countdown of those events that were fulfilled by Jesus Christ began some 487 years earlier. That was the beginning of the prophetic “70 Weeks Prophecy” given in Daniel 9.

It would be good to be reminded of that beginning as well because the prophecy is highly specific concerning the exact timing that God would fulfill in order to accomplish it all. God moved Artaxerxes in 457 BC to issue the decree that began this first countdown to the coming of the Messiah. Artaxerxes issued the decree for the rebuilding of Jerusalem that took place through the time of Ezra and Nehemiah up to 408 BC. It would be good to consider the exactness of what God said:

“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem [457 BC] until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks [7 weeks x 7 days that gives a prophetic 49 years that went to 408 BC] and sixty-two weeks [434 years that went up to 27 AD when Christ began his ministry]. The street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troubled times. And after sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off [killed], but not for himself [for all others as the Passover of all mankind]… And he [Messiah] shall confirm with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease [he fulfilled the meaning of the sacrificial system through his death, and therefore caused the laws regarding their observance to cease]” (Dan. 9:25-27).

The ability to plan and then execute such plans in such a meticulous manner over such a broad period of time serve to reveal and magnify the awesome purpose, power, and incredible glory of God Almighty to perform it. It is as Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes:

“I know that whatsoever God does [works to accomplish, labors to perform], it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it [whatever God predetermines, He fulfills exactly], and God does so that all should fear before Him [be in awe, to honor and reverence, and fear to do otherwise]. That which has been is now, and that which is to be has already been [God’s predetermined plan of things to be fulfilled, will be], and God requires that which is past [that which has long ago been planned, God pursues to fulfill]” (Eccl. 3:14-15).

The Last Countdown
We have just reviewed the first great countdown to Christ’s first coming, as a physical man, in order to fulfill the Passover and Wave-sheaf Offering. It is beyond full comprehension to grasp the awesomeness of us now being in the latter end of the second great countdown to his coming, and this time in Elohim, as King of kings. This end-time countdown has far more complexity, exact timing, and coordination of precise events than the first.

We are living in a period that is working to magnify and glorify God’s incredible greatness – more than any other single period in mankind’s history. Indeed, this is very much about the 7th Thunder growing in greater power and intensity the closer we draw to Pentecost of 2019.

Much of what we have gone over in this post and will yet touch upon lightly is a review of things we already know. However, this serves to put it all into a better perspective for what we are living – for what we are witnessing – that is working to glorify the great majesty of God. This last great countdown is very much what this is all about – more fully establishing the glory of Almighty God before mankind of His performance to usher in His government upon this earth.

The final countdown to Christ’s coming had a very clear and distinct beginning. It started at an exact moment in time and yet was planned thousands upon thousands of years in advance. So very long ago God Almighty predetermined that He would give one primary sign to His Church (not to the world) when that final countdown was to begin. This was to be the only defining sign that such had begun.

This is revealed in the very first truth that God established in His remnant Church, in the Church of God-PKG. It is the first truth established after the 18 that were restored to God’s Church through His previous apostle, Herbert W. Armstrong. It is the 22nd Truth, which states:

“There has been an apostasy that is unprecedented in the Church of God as prophesied in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3.”

It would also be good to quote a section of the 50th Truth regarding this chapter in 2 Thessalonians, which refers to the significance of this exact timing of a physical leader over the Church on earth who would betray Jesus Christ and cause this Apostasy.

“The revelation of this man would reveal to the Church that the end-time had now come and that the First Seal of Revelation had been opened. This man who would betray God’s government would be known as ‘the man of sin’ and ‘the son of perdition.’ As covered in the Church’s literature and in sermons, God revealed who this man was by a judgment of death that was contained in this revelation. That judgment was revealed through the number 40 (used as God’s judgment) times the seven-day week. It was exactly 280 days from the time of this man’s betrayal to the time he died. When Joe Tkach, Sr. gave a sermon denouncing the most basic laws of God, it was exactly 280 days later to the hour that he died. This timing was God’s revelation of who the son of perdition and this man of sin was.”

All that is recorded here is about one primary sign to the Church that the timing for Christ’s return had come. For nearly 1900 years, the Church waited until God revealed His timing for what He had inspired Paul to write.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by [about] the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto [preparing ourselves for] him, that you do not become soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that day of Christ is at hand [that it has come]. Let no man deceive you by any means, for except [Christ’s coming will not occur before this] there come a falling away [Gk. – apostasy – a great departing from the truth] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (2 Thes. 2:1-3).

A few who remain in God’s remnant Church experienced the immediate results of this moment in time that served to reveal the beginning of that countdown, which would lead up to the coming of the Messiah. This event began the process of the opening of the Seals of Revelation by Jesus Christ himself, as he and his Father began the process of intricate work that would lead up to the exact moment of his coming, which we believe will be on Pentecost of 2019.

It is becoming more and more evident that God has given an additional seven years to bring to pass those things written in 2008 – God’s Final Witness. Though we still do not know when the effects of the 2nd Trumpet are to commence, we see by the events of this world that the effects of all the Trumpets are very rapidly approaching, just as an approaching WW III is becoming more evident.

God has been revealing some of the most profound and intricate work contained in the time of the Apostasy to Christ’s literal coming, which shows the magnitude and power of His greatness to bring to pass all that He predetermined so very long ago.
It makes the word “awesome” seem so very puny and small because what God is doing goes so very far beyond such a weak description that words cannot convey it.

We have been given a great deal already concerning the unfathomable scale for the mathematical probabilities of so many events and timing to occur as they have been since the 17th of December in 1994 (the day of the Apostasy) to Pentecost of 2019 that it truly staggers the mind to try to grasp it all. As an exercise of your own, it would be good that you review some of these events and their timing that has been covered in previous posts. This time, try to look upon such events in the context of what was covered in the first part of this post concerning the events and their precise timing surrounding Christ’s first coming that God orchestrated. This should be done in the context of seeking to recognize God’s active work, and now also that of Christ’s, with such precision to fulfill all the events throughout this complete period that in reality amounts to bringing to fulfillment all that is contained in the Seven Seals of Revelation.

There are two matters that I would like to address which need to be added to the end of this post so that all readers might be better informed, rather than simply sending it to the Church separately.

Third Book
Some time ago, I commented on the potential of writing a third book. Since there are quite a few who make mention of this in anticipation of it being published, this will serve as an update.

It now seems that such a book is not intended for this age, especially since it became clear to me that much of the content was to come from posts I have written while being here in prison. It now seems more likely that such a publication could well be a compilation of such written information that would be more beneficial to those in the Millennium.

Candidly, the book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness, will still be the primary publication needed by people over the next few years. This will be needed by many to help them understand what they are experiencing once great tribulation strikes this earth. In addition, they will also be able to place their hope in the “good news” of what will follow after the Pentecost of 2019. The only thing that will have changed is the timing that followed that publication – a period of seven additional years.

Impaled On A Pole
Another matter I would like to address concerns a phrase I have used over the past few years. I have used the phrase “impaled on a pole” when referring to what happened to Christ on Passover of 31 AD. Someone recently voiced their displeasure with the use of such an expression.

As a little background, a few years ago I became determined to get rid of the term “crucifixion,” since it is a false account that pictures Jesus Christ being nailed upon a cross. Since such a description is a perversion of the truth and the result of what the Catholic Church did to mingle pagan beliefs and practices with that of the story of Jesus Christ’s life, it is important that we do all we can to correct such misconceptions and lies.

Even Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance mistranslates the Greek work “stauroo” as “crucify,” and it states that this word means to “impale on a cross.” Although they have incorrectly given this definition to say that what took place was upon a cross, rather than a singular pole, they have correctly used the term “impale.”

The Church of God understands that he was nailed upon a straight pole through both hands together with a single nail (spike), just as his feet were nailed through with a single nail. His hands were not nailed through separately with his arms outstretched on a cross beam that was affixed to a pole.

When using the term “impaled on” or “to” a pole, God’s Church would fully understand that this is speaking in a context of the actual account where “nails” were used to impale Jesus Christ upon a pole. God’s people most certainly grasp that this would not be picturing a full body impalement on a pole. The word “impale” is a perfectly acceptable and proper term to be used in describing this account.

The dictionary definition of “impale” is to “pierce or transfix with a sharp instrument [in this case, nails]; to spike, run through, harpoon, stab, skewer, spear.” Some dictionaries also refer to the medieval use of this Latin origin in the practice of piercing with a sharpened stake trust up through the body. However, the use of the term over the centuries began to take on a much broader meaning and usage.

Although it is doubtful that any new reader would be confused by the use of the expression of Jesus Christ being “impaled upon a pole,” leading them to incorrectly conclude that this was speaking of his body being pierced through in this manner, I will add the word “nailed” to my description of this event. In other words, this account will be referred to in context of Jesus Christ being “impaled (or pierced through) with nails on a pole.”

Satan’s Waning Power

After 22 days, some more #2 nonsense.  Wonder how Satan’s power is going to begin to diminish

—— False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s post ———————-

On the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, God began to reveal more about the deliverance of this world from the influence and bondage of Satan. The timing of this could not be more apropos.

During the sermon that was given on that day, a prophetic area of scripture concerning Satan was discussed. It was then that God began to reveal to me the deeper meaning and importance associated with these verses in Genesis. Although these verses are a broad overview of future prophetic events, they begin to reveal a part of Satan’s waning power that is now in the process of rapidly moving forward as we enter the final stages of this phase of the end-time.

Prophetic Verses
Some of the most powerful and profound prophecies God delivered to mankind were given from the very onset of human life – right after the first recorded sins of Adam and Eve. These prophecies were about the future birth and the death of the Son of God, then his rise to power, and the Church of God that followed. These prophecies also speak of Satan’s curse that would continue to the time when his power would become more fully diminished, and then finally come to the time of his destruction.

“The Eternal God said unto the serpent, ‘Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field. Upon your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. It shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel’” (Gen. 3:14-15).

To understand these prophetic verses in Genesis it is needful to quickly review God’s predetermined plan for Christ and then His church, and how His purpose for His son and mankind as His begotten children work to accomplish God’s curse on Satan.

From the very beginning, in this account of Adam and Eve’s sin, God’s great plan and purpose is awesomely revealing. For those in God’s Church, it is not that difficult to see that before human life was ever created, it was predetermined that mankind would be created in such a manner that, by his own free choice, he would be drawn to sin – to the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. It is from these earliest verses in scripture that God begins to reveal that He predetermined that mankind would need a Passover through whom their sins could be forgiven. All mankind, except Christ, would sin and come under the penalty of death – under Satan’s power of bondage.

In the Book of Hebrews, a quote of one of David’s prophecies is given when he is contemplating God’s purpose for the creation of mankind. Hebrews quotes this prophecy and states that mankind was made (created) a little lower than the angels, yet they were created to become crowned with glory and honor and to be set over the works of His hands (over God’s creation). This states God’s purpose that existed from the beginning. It then states that God put all things under his feet (under the feet of mankind to rule over), and that all was made to be in subjection to him and that nothing was left that was not put under him (under mankind). Then it states, “But now we do not yet see all things put under him” (Heb. 2:8).

The next verse is awesomely revealing because it goes on to show what we can now see at this time in the creation of mankind. It concerns the very Son of God who was begotten by God, with God being his paternal father, and then born of a woman as a physical human being so that he could live and then die in order to become the Passover of all mankind:

“But we see Jesus, who was made [created in the womb of Mary] a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor [resurrected and born into Elohim – made a spirit being in God’s family], that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man [becoming our Passover]” (Heb. 2:9).

So indeed, before mankind was ever created, God predetermined (planned and purposed) that all mankind would need a Passover and Messiah who would work to deliver them from sin and then work to bring them into the God Family. Paul also speaks of this process in Romans:

“For whom He [God] did foreknow [see #1 below], He also did predestinate [see #2 below] to be [become] conformed to the image of His Son, that he [Christ] might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, whom He did predestinate [predetermine], them He also called, and whom He called, them He also justified [through Christ], and whom He justified, them He also glorified [see #3 below]” (Rom. 8:29-30).

[#1] Above, the word “foreknow” [Gk.- beforehand – to know, think through, plan] is used only a few times in scripture, but its very definition is best defined by its usage in 1 Pet. 1:20 when Christ is being spoken of as being foreordained by God. “Who [speaking of Christ] was ‘foreordained’ before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you.”

[#2] This Greek word translated here as “predestinate” [Gk.- beforehand – to determine, ordain, purpose] is again best defined by its context and usage in Eph. 1:4-5. Here it is revealed that before the foundation of the world itself was established that God determined the need for a Passover for mankind so that mankind could become part of God’s very family. “According as He has chosen us in him [in Christ] before the foundation of the world, that we should be [become] holy and without blame [forgiven of sin through our Passover] before Him [God] in love, having ‘predestinated’ us unto the adoption of children by [through] Jesus Christ to Himself [God], according to the good pleasure of His will.”

[#3] Those first called and justified to this time are those who are now the firstfruits and they will be in the God Family – “glorified” in Elohim. Certainly, all those in the future who go through this same process can potentially become “glorified” as well. All this was God’s plan that He determined before man was ever created, and it was predetermined that through Christ they would have the potential to become “glorified” as part of His family.

In returning now to Hebrews 2, and a few verses past what we covered in verse 9, a scripture from Isaiah is quoted that is about Christ. “And again he says, ‘Here am I [Christ] and the children [the Church – those begotten of God’s spirit] whom God has given me.’ Inasmuch then as the children [those begotten of God’s spirit and given to Christ] have partaken [sharers together] of flesh and blood [made physical before being able to be born of spirit], he himself [Christ] likewise shared in the same [was born of physical life first before being born of spirit], that through death he [Christ] might destroy [bring to nothing, nullify, and eventually literally destroy] him [Satan] who had the power of death [because of sin], that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” (Heb. 2:13-15).

Genesis 3:14
In this story of the first two humans whom God created, and then their subsequent sin, God gave prophetic pronouncements that involved judgments that would be executed upon man, woman, and Satan through time. Those are described as the curses they would suffer due to sin. In previous posts, much of those things relating to curses that befell men and women already have been covered.

This post concerns the curse that was placed upon Satan. This was due to his evil work, within his evil spirit, where he harbored evil intent towards the creation of mankind, and then acted in sin to lead man and woman into sin – to also turn them against God.

“The Eternal God said unto the serpent, ‘Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field [land]. Upon your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life’” (Gen. 3:14).

These verses are very poorly translated into English. Not a great deal of time will be spent in covering the scriptures that strongly clarify the true meaning of the poorly translated words. Rather, an overview of basic explanation, along with a few needful verses showing greater clarification will be given.

When it says that he is cursed “above every beast,” the Hebrew word for beast should be more correctly translated as “life” or “living.” This Hebrew word is used in a few areas in reference to animals, but it is also used in specific reference to mankind as well, and such instances are a matter of understanding by the specific context. Nevertheless, it should still be translated as “life” or “living” in order to give its truest intent and meaning. This word is used twice in the scripture when it speaks of God giving life to Adam. One time it is translated as “life” and the other as “living.”

“And the Eternal God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of ‘life,’ and man became a ‘living’ soul [body or being]” (Gen. 2:7).

In Gen. 3:14, the word “cattle” is not about cattle at all. If it were to be read literally as being cattle, this would be exceedingly strange and it would carry very little comparative value. This usage and interpretation would almost be equivalent to saying that Satan was of the cattle kind, and this would also raise questions as to the kinds of curses that have befallen cattle, which indeed should seem weird and should bring into question such a translation or interpretation. There are specific words in Hebrew that do describe only cattle, however, this word is far beyond that specific narrow usage.

One of the more practical, easier to grasp uses of this word is found in the account of Noah and the ark.

“And God remembered Noah, and every living thing [Heb.- “all life” – that was on the ark], and all the “cattle” that were with him on the ark…” (Gen. 8:1).

It should be quite obvious that God was not merely concerned with the seven pair of cattle more than all the other animals that had been gathered together on the ark. Other descriptive words concerning the life that was on the ark is broadened when God gave Noah instruction to bring all life off the ark.

“Bring forth with you every living thing [all life] that is with you of all flesh, of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth” (Gen. 8:17).

All “flesh” in this verse is a word used as a description that includes any and all life that was on the ark (Gen. 8:17-19). It also includes human life as when Adam and Eve were told that they were to become one flesh (one body) as husband and wife.

The word “cattle” in these verses that have been quoted is used in context like the word “animal” might be used when describing life of land creatures that is distinct from birds or creeping things (as reptiles). This word in Hebrew which is translated as “cattle” is plural and is used to include a vast variety of living creatures and does not simply describe one type or a specific variety by its use. Cattle alone as a single variety could not be described by such a word when used by itself in this manner.

So in returning to Genesis 3:14, we see that God told Satan that because he had sinned by leading the man and woman into sin, he was now cursed above all that God had created in the animal kingdom. This does not mean that animals were cursed, but instead that the greatness of Satan’s existence and very life was being cursed, by a process that would begin to lower him below that of all the creation of the animal kingdom.

The contrast that is made is that Satan’s curse was akin to being lowered below that of the animal kingdom to that of creeping things, and as such, he would be so low as to symbolically be licking up the dust of the earth for the remainder of his life. Although Satan did not grasp what God told him, he certainly knows now.

There is yet even deeper prophetic meaning in what God told Satan. In this curse of being lowered to the level of licking the dust of the earth, God was prophetically revealing how He would “lower” Satan. It would be by what God would accomplish in His ongoing creation through that which was the primary purpose of all His creation. God’s great purpose in creation is in that of creating His Family, Elohim. Satan would be made to lick of the dust of the earth – lowered to have to swallow what God was accomplishing in His creation of mankind – mankind that was made of the “dust” of the earth.

Genesis 3:15
“I [the Eternal] will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. It shall bruise your head and you shall bruise his heel” (Gen. 3:15).

This verse is an outline of awesome prophetic events that cover nearly 7,000 years. Satan first led Eve, the first woman, to sin; therefore, God stated that through woman He would put (set, appoint, establish) enmity between Satan and the woman. This would be accomplished in a progressive manner through time. Through woman, as mankind began to be multiplied upon the earth, God would begin calling out those whom He would mold and fashion to become part of the firstfruits of His creation.

The means through which God would put enmity between Satan and the woman was through this process of God calling individuals out of the world – out from the ways of Satan and sin. God would forgive those whom He called and they would begin to worship Him in spirit and in truth. This process of how God worked with those whom He called automatically put them and the way of life they embraced at odds with Satan, and he with them – enmity between them.

Satan could not grasp nor fully know what God was doing through those with whom He interacted. Yet Satan was always there to fight against – to be an enemy – to those with whom God worked. So from the beginning, there began to be enmity between the woman and Satan. The process began first in the life of Abel, whom God first called and worked with.

However, the greater prophetic fulfillment would come when God created life to come into existence within Mary’s womb, as she would then give birth to the very Son of God. Satan could never destroy what God was doing, yet he was always an enemy and sought to do so. Still, this devil was allowed to influence the very killing of Jesus Christ, but he could not destroy him. He did not grasp what God was going to fulfill (to establish) through His only begotten Son.

Satan’s seed refers to all the world that has followed his ways – the ways of pride, rebellion, selfishness, greed, lust, and sin. The woman’s seed is that which is first about Jesus Christ who came to spill his blood to the earth and then die to become the Passover for all mankind. This “seed” then is broadened mightily in meaning to include all who have come from woman and have been called of God, being forgiven of sin through Jesus Christ, and receiving the life of God dwelling in them. This “seed” became the Church of God, which will soon grow in massive size over the next 1,100 years.

In reality, Satan was only able to inflict a temporary suffering upon Jesus Christ (to bruise his heel), as he was not able to destroy him. Satan did not grasp that by what he had instigated in the killing of the Son of God, he was only lowering himself to lick more of the dust of the earth, since as a result of Jesus Christ then becoming mankind’s Passover, the means was made manifest for the potential of “all mankind” to be forgiven of all sin and then to receive the life of God to dwell in them (more “licking of the dust of the earth” by Satan).

Not only did Jesus Christ then become the Passover for all mankind, but three days later he fulfilled the meaning of the wave-sheaf offering, the first of the firstfruits to be born and received into God’s family Elohim, the first of mankind to be made greater than the angelic realm. This too became more “licking of the dust of the earth” by the Devil.

Fifty days after the wave-sheaf was accepted by God, the Church of God, the Body of Christ, was established. Jesus Christ then became the High Priest of God to the Church. On that day of Pentecost, the Church was established as a spiritual mother to all whom God the Father would call into it. This is the spiritual woman spoken of by John for the end-time:

“When the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth [to lick the dust of the earth], he persecuted [the enmity – as an enemy] the woman which brought forth the man [Jesus Christ]. And to the woman [Church] was given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent” (Rev. 12:13-14).

These verses and those that follow cover a period of time from the birth of the Son of God of a physical woman to the establishment of the Church, which is likened to a woman. It then continues on to reference the time of the Apostasy, which was the long awaited proclamation to the Church of Christ’s imminent return. These events all culminate with the end of Satan’s influence upon the Church and upon all mankind for the next 1,100 years. We are now rapidly moving through that transition and the greatest “licking of dust” yet by that evil being.

So the reality is that Satan was only able to bring about a temporary harm (to bruise the heel) on the “seed of the woman” when Jesus Christ’s physical life was taken from him. Figuratively, Satan was “only” able to bruise Jesus Christ’s heel, whereas this prophetic “seed of the woman,” Jesus Christ, would bruise Satan’s very head. Three days after Satan bruised Jesus Christ’s heel, he was resurrected from death and became the first of the firstfruits of the human family to enter Elohim and to receive such “glory” in the spirit-existing Family of God.

The following is a far better translation of the true context and spiritual intent of Genesis 3:15: “I [the Eternal] will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed, and it [her seed] shall bruise your very head, but you shall only bruise his heel.”

Bruising Satan’s Head
As it has been covered in the recent past, Satan’s life will come to an end. It will occur at a time soon after the final 100-year period of judgment when the greatest salvation of mankind takes place. This event will be the final fulfillment of what will occur in the bruising of Satan’s head. He tried to destroy Christ, but only bruised his heel when he facilitated Jesus Christ’s human death; however, Christ will bruise Satan’s head, meaning the vulnerable part of the body that will fully end his very existence and destroy him.

Most everyone believes that since Satan is a spirit being that he cannot cease to exist. That is simply not true! For the sake of some new readers, a quick and partial overview of this would be helpful, although there is much more that has been covered on the subject.

The truth is that God alone has self-sustaining, age-lasting existence – eternal existence inherent in Himself. God not only created the physical universe and everything in it, but He also sustains it. Mankind cannot begin to remotely grasp such magnitude of power and might. Even the spirit realm was created by God, and it was created before the physical creation. It too is sustained by Him. After the spirit realm was created, God created angelic beings who were composed of spirit, but their life is not self-sustaining. God sustains it all! The reality is that the spirit life that God gave to angels can be taken from them and they can come to an end of life, just as what will happen to Satan.

Notice what God has said to Satan: “By the multitude of your merchandise, it has filled the midst of you with violence, and you have sinned [Lucifer sinned]. Therefore I will cast you as profane out of the mountain of God [remove him from all power], and I will ‘destroy’ you” (Ez. 28:16). God will destroy Satan and make him to perish from among the entire created angelic realm.

The Hebrew word translated here as “destroy” means just that and is most often translated as “perish.” Two examples are given below:

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that you shall soon utterly ‘perish’ from off the land whereunto you go over Jordan to possess it. You shall not prolong your days upon it, but you shall be utterly destroyed” (Deu. 4:26).

“And the letters were sent by posts into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to ‘perish,’ all Jews” (Es. 3:13).

This Year of Dedication
This prophecy in Genesis 3:15 actually brings us up to the present and those things that God is now doing in and through the Church to accelerate the “bruising of Satan’s head.” As it was stated at the beginning of this post concerning God revealing even greater prophetic meaning in these two verses of Genesis, “The timing of this could not be more apropos.”

For about the past three years now, the Church has been living through a very specific prophesied time of the sixth period of 1,260 days in the count to Christ’s return following the Apostasy upon the Church. This period is about the “measuring of the temple” covered in the beginning of Revelation 11.

This time for the “measuring of the temple” is about a final great cleansing of that temple, as harmful, profaning, and polluting elements are being removed from it. Some of what began to be removed early on and is still taking place to a much smaller degree is the removal from the environs of the Church of those who feign (pretend – falsely live) that they have been part of the temple. This time is also about many within the Church who have been yielding themselves to more fully measure up to their placement in the temple of God. These begotten individuals are cleansing themselves as they work to more fully “dress and keep” what God has placed before them.

Within this time of measuring the temple, and now in this final Year of Dedication, month by month the Church is being made stronger and Satan weaker. In this time of the Church being made stronger and of being prepared for what lies ahead in the next few years, as well as being prepared for Christ’s coming, Satan’s head is beginning to be bruised. Not only is God increasingly diminishing Satan’s power, but also He is preparing to have him completely removed from the presence of mankind for the next 1,100 years. When that time has passed Satan will then be released for a short time in order to meet his destruction – the final bruising of his head.

This adversarial spirit being knows that his time is short and he is striking out at God’s Church in whatever ways he can, but due to the Church being so strengthened spiritually, he is simply eating more and more dust. Yet this knowledge should sober all of us to focus even more so on putting God first in our lives and working earnestly to more fully dedicate our lives to Him and His way of life. God and Jesus Christ have granted us this most awesome opportunity to excel in that quest in the remaining time of this important and exceedingly blessed and special Year of Dedication.

There is yet one more prophetic verse that is now beginning to be fulfilled. It was recorded by Paul when he states, “And the God of peace shall bruise [KJV quote – the actual Gk. means ‘to break, shatter, crush’] Satan under your [the Church’s] feet shortly” (Rom. 16:20).

This is part of what is now beginning to take place in this year and will continue through the seventh period that follows. The word translated “shortly” is not a word that means it will happen soon, but is a compound word that means, “When it is time for it to happen, it will happen relatively quickly or over a short period of time.” The next few years is indeed a short period of time when held up to the past nearly 6,000 years of Satan’s work against mankind, and short compared to the nearly 2,000 years of his fighting against God’s Church. So indeed, this time spoken of by Paul has begun and will continue to accelerate until it is complete.

The more that Satan fights against God’s Church, the more his power will become diminished and shattered. This will continue up to a crescendo when the 144,000 return with Christ and he binds Satan for the next 1,100 years. At that point, Satan’s power and influence against God’s Church will be fully crushed, broken, and shattered, as he will never again be able to harm it! As the rest of the verse in Romans 16:20 states, “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you [the Church], Amen.”

Inset Post – An Apostle and Prophet

Ron was overdue for a post, longer than 3 weeks since last one.  Here is his latest nonsense, including claims about his IRS difficulties.  One of them I’ve already refuted in my post Sentencing Memorandum of Mike (DDTFA).  As far as his claim that there is a “required dollar amount” before the government can take action, I doubt that there is a legal requirement but there may be administrative standards the IRS and US Attorney has preferring to get convictions for larger dollar amounts.

Update: I failed to copy over the “introduction to the introduction” shown below in italics.  There has been criticism of his speaking of himself in the third person.  While that might be appropriate for a paragraph or two in a jacket liner, writing your own introduction in the third person is … well, rather weird.

———–  Weinland’s Post: ————

The following post has been written to inform you of the new introduction for the two books on the book website.

Ronald Weinland, an author whose books have gone into over 170 countries in 7 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, 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 man’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 6,000 years. He 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, he is coming as a “Lion” with great supernatural power to chasten, battle, and conquer those who are destroying the earth. Jesus Christ will then establish a one-world 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 by the government of his time on the Isle of Patmos, he had revealed to him the Book of Revelation, which he then wrote. 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.

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 concerning the beginning fulfillment of prophetic end-time events that Christ revealed were to begin first in His own Church – events that began to occur in December of 1994 with the opening of the First Seal. Since most in the world have not readily known of God’s true Church, they are largely unaware that these events involved the opening of the first six seals of Revelation. It is also revealed how 9/11 was a fulfillment of the Sixth Seal and a prophetic type of what is yet to follow on a vastly larger scale.

His last book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness, begins to pinpoint the timing of the remainder of major end-time events and adds far more information beyond what the first book covers. This book reveals the opening of the Seventh Seal (the last seal to be opened), which occurred in 2008, and the book also reveals the meaning of the Seven Trumpets, as well as 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 with the opening of the Seventh Seal of Revelation in 2008. These events have begun with the first phase of a great economic collapse, which has only been temporarily delayed by quantitative easing that will actually lead the world into a far more horrific global economic collapse. These final prophecies reveal the collapse of the U.S. Dollar, as well as the decline and eventual destruction of the United States itself. The final great war prophesied will be between temporarily united European nations and the axis powers of both Russia and China combined.

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.

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, with so many of them being imprisoned and even many killed.

Ronald Weinland was accused and convicted of purposefully evading the payment of taxes to the federal government. It was imputed that many expenses declared as Church expenses could not be declared as such, but were personal, and therefore, taxes should have been paid on those personal expenses. The two primary expenses that gave the government the “required dollar amount” necessary to bring about such an indictment and then a conviction was based on Church beliefs and legitimate religious practices for God’s Church.

The main dollar amount was $300,000 in Church money, which was moved to a bank in Switzerland. This was made to look sinister, 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 will engulf the world in the final years of the end-time (which will now occur within a period between November 2015 {as originally posted was 2016 but changed after a commenter pointed out the error} and May 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 a meager amount of funds, along with the ability to continue doing a “religious work,” could be aided by funds deposited in Switzerland. Just as with events that transpired in 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.

This last book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness, explains what people must do if they want to survive this last war – a nuclear war – and live on into a new age that God will give to mankind.
