False Prophet Ronald Weinland spoke from the London UK area today. Ron went into full-sheriffing mode this week on a visit to the home of his UK elder Benjamin Ikwueme. The outcome of this meeting was that Ron de-ordained Benjamin as one of his elders. After the two witnesses left Ikwueme’s home and returned to their hotel, Mrs. Ikwueme called to say that they were quitting COG-PKG. Perhaps the issue for Ron was that Benjamin kept his Facebook page despite Ron’s fatwa and edict that elders were not to be on it. In his sermon on August 29 in which he strongly suggested that his members should not be on Facebook, Ron said:
That’s why I told the elders a long time ago to not be on those sites. Do you understand why I would have said something like that to elders a long time ago? Not to be on some of these open forums and so forth? If you don’t understand, think about it, pray about it and you’ll come to understand what’s healthier for the Church and why. And if it is good for elders to not do, I wonder… hmmm, it might be good for us.
Or perhaps Benjamin did not come through with the 419 millionaires Weinland expected since ordaining Benjamin in September of 2008. 😉 Joking aside, I hope that Benjamin and Grace will soon be able to put PKG behind them and that they and their sons will recover from the cult. And that they will reflect on their experience in PKG and avoid making the same mistake with another false prophet of which there are too many.
This trip has been an anniversary of a sort. It was 10 years ago, in late November of 1999, that Ron and Laura started their false prophecy globetrotting with a trip to the Belgium and Netherlands using air miles donated to them by Steve Dalrymple. While on that trip, Ron and Laura went to Paris and then London on or about November 25, 1999 and met the Ikwuemes. So Benjamin and Grace have had a long association with PKG.
Ron promises some timeshifting sermons to be delivered leading up to the fast on February 6. He’ll need to explain why the Great Tribulation has still not arrived well after the first trumpet blew for the second time.
Ron recycled one of his “News Watch” articles from the May 1998 issue. Looks like Ron’s not going to write another book, since he stated that everything in “2008 – God’s Final Witness” would happen exactly as written. And the timing would be right on target. Except for the 8 month delay between timelines which was qualified in the book as “a marginal 6-month window of time”. So does that mean:
- The US will no longer be an independent nation by June 21, 2009?
- The five specific ministers named as the first phase of the fifth thunder of the 6th seal who are still alive will indeed die during the 6th seal which ended on Feb 2, 2008 Nov 14, 2008?
- The economy is the 4th thunder and not the 1st trumpet?
- where “2008 – GFW” describes the 1st trumpet as “When we are told that a third of all plant life will be destroyed, that is exactly what it means.” that that’s exactly what it means, and that it’s not talking about the economy?
- That somewhere is an archive of interviews not arranged by Ron’s publicist? Since “2008 GFW” states “Radio and television interviews will become more the norm as curiosity, news, controversy, and fear increase in proportion to the growing intensity of these thunders.” This statement was in the chapter entitled “The Seven Thunders of the 6th Seal” which ended on Feb 2, 2008 Nov 14, 2008.
The fire proceeding out of their mouth is symbolic of the power to pronounce exacting judgments upon anyone who would do them harm. Whatever the two witnesses pronounce will come to pass.
does it mean that I died a speedy death shortly after the Spokesman Witness pronounced his curse on me 49 weeks ago? That makes me so special. Not only am I a vulture picking on Ron’s putrid corpse, I’m a zombie vulture picking on Ron’s putrid corpse. How unusual. Somehow I manage to avoid picking on my own corpse and continue picking on Ron’s.
