Ronald Weinland of the Church of God - Preparing for the Kingdom of God (COGPKG) wrote an apocalyptic book entitled 2008 God's Final Witness detailing a three and one half year horror show of end time tribulation. Nuclear war, pestilence, drought, floods, earthquakes etc, were all supposed to happen during the time period of 2008-2012. The U.S.A. factored prominently in his prophecies to the point of declaring that no new president would be elected in 2009.
None of Ron's predictions or published prophecies took place. The great tribulation was slowly compressed into a smaller and smaller window with excuse after excuse, culminating in only one week. This last week of May 2012 is supposed to end with the return of Jesus Christ after a nuclear holocaust and destruction of civilization.
Even though the Testimony of Jesus Christ clearly shows that no man knows the day or the hour of His return, Ronald Weinland has twisted almost every scripture I have heard him quote. Jesus himself warned you about false prophets:
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
Ronald Weinland has twisted that scripture and says it means back in the days of Jesus no one would know, but that has changed and God has revealed to him (Ronald Weinland) the date of Jesus Christ's return, so he could warn us. But the scriptures say
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away
So if the scripture says His words shall not pass away but remain forever, changing the words would make Jesus a liar. Ronald Weinland has taught his followers that Jesus lied to the Jews when he said:
Before Abraham was, I am.
Compare what is written in your Bible with what Ronald Weinland is teaching (or any Armstrong cult). Why would God have things written that would not mean exactly what they say in plain english? Jesus is not a liar, Ronald Weinland is a lying con artist because he has twisted every scripture he has come across. Instead of preaching the Gospel, he is collecting tithes to do the "work" God has given him to do. I've got some good news for you. The work has already been done. Jesus said "It is finished" on the cross. The New Testament is published in every country in the world in almost every language in the world. Anyone can access the testimony of Jesus Christ. No one needs a preacher to read the Bible to them unless they are blind and do not know how to read braille.
The message of the entire Bible is "Love thy neighbour". You do not need to give money to some preacher who does not even have a church in your neighbourhood. If you feel the need to tithe, why not give to the poor instead of making a false prophet rich. And there are many false prophets out there.
Take heed that no one leads you astray; for many will come in my Name saying 'I am He' and 'The time is at hand!'. Do not go after them
There are many blogs out there that have been warning you about Ronald Weinland but you turn away from them to follow a false prophet. How much money has he stolen from you? He has robbed you and your children and your future.
There will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. In their greed they will exploit you with false words; from of old their condemnation has not been idle, and their destruction has not been asleep.
I don't interpret or manipulate the Word. I just write it down exactly as it is written.
"1Ti 6:3 If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, 1Ti 6:4 he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing."
Gal 1:9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
You PKGers are following a proven false prophet. Pick up your Bible and start reading on the first page of Matthew; NOT the Old Testament. Otherwise, you deserve what people like Ronald Weinland are going to do to you. The end of the Bible is Paradise. The end with Ronald Weinland is misery, then depression, anger, and finally, atheism.
This is not the only blog to expose Ronald Weinland for the false prophet that he is:
The IRS is after a con artist named Ronald Weinland. They have a date with him in criminal court for the federal charge of income tax evasion. Due to the freedom of religion clause, income tax evasion is the only way to put a false prophet in prison.
