False Prophet Ronald Weinland spoke this weekend from the luxurious Venetian Resort Hotel & Casino at his International Ministerial Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. But he didn’t state his location, so those few members who don’t read my blog don’t know where he is this weekend. The 29 in attendance would have included: Ron and Laura, Johnny and Myrtle Harrell, Wayne and Chris Matthews, Terry and Ann Wrozek, Scott and Kristina Cameron, Audra and Chris Little, Adrian and Cindy Gray, Steve and Patty Dalrymple, William and Una Milne, Dave and Shelley Conley, Lori Williams, Mitch Williams, Jimmy Carlisle, Willem Henderson, Jim Jamieson, Ralph Dowd, Leonard McGlynn, and Greg Chipps.
Before beginning the sermon, he gave the name of elders newly ordained or promoted since the feast. The lucky people are: Bert from Hawaii; Keith and Diana Prutsman, and Kathi Wilson from TN; Carla, Shirley, and Daisy from KY, Mike from IN, Amanda Wrozek and Nancy from MI with Greg Chipps promoted to Senior Elder; Parker in CO; Elmira Worth, George, Geneva, and Gabrielle Giles from GA with Paul Giles promoted to elder; Louisa from Manitoba with George Black promoted to elder; Eric and Kaylee Wiesman from Alberta promoted to elder; Sandy Czech in WA promoted to elder, Sandy and Jimmy in OH, Cindy Gray from New Zealand promoted to elder, and Kristina Cameron from Colby, KS (Ron’s sister) promoted to senior elder. These elders increase the ranks of those to be tasked with baptizing millions in the US before Christ returns in May.
Ron is looking again at his list of “truths”. In his sermon, Ron tweaked his 51st truth about his being the end-time Elijah-to-come. It was two years ago, in December of 2009, when Ron decided that he was the end-time Elijah-to-come supplanting Herbert Armstrong. (You might find it interesting to follow that link and read several articles describing all the contradictions surrounding the 51st “truth”.) Now Ron has decided that he needed to add two sentences to it, which will be included in the text of the “truth” on the website. The apostles got much from Christ, but Herbert Armstrong had so much more. And Ronald Weinland has so many more new revealed, not just restored, truths than Herbert Armstrong. No doubt Ronald will still be happy to have Christ come on May 27 and take off the pressure by demoting him again.
Seventeen years ago yesterday, Joe Tkach Sr opened the first seal and committed the abomination of desolation in a sermon delivered in Atlanta. Seventeen years ago this coming Saturday, he reprised the sermon at the church college in Big Sanday, that sermon being the one that was recorded and sent to all WCG congregations and was the one referred to as the “Christmas Eve” sermon (not the one in Atlanta).
Five years ago yesterday, newly ordained elder Kathi Wilson’s son Tony posted the following on the now withdrawn Ambassador Watch blog:
I know alot of you are rambling on and on about mental illness, delusions of grandeur, false prophecies, etc. etc.
I’m a man who knows Ronald Weinland. I’ve known him for multiple years. If there is one thing that I can say about him it is that he is far from insane and he is far from egotistical. In fact Ronald Weinland is one of the most down to earth individuals I’ve ever met.
This whole forum is dedicated to bitterness and frankly it reeks of a spirit not inspired from above. Just look at all the bloated hatred you all spew in every which way. Regardless of your opinion, pro or con, shouldn’t a Christian attitude be one of sympathy and concern instead of bitterness?
A lot of bad things have happened in the various COGs, I’ve spent years researching it and digging to the bottom of it all to wrap my brain around it. Sadly, the history is filled with individuals like those here on this forum dedicated not to any semblance of decency but simply tearing down (and if the truth stands in your way, who cares?)
If you want to talk about his book, why don’t you actually read it so you won’t appear so foolish along with full of blind hatred? You’ll see that he’s not in the same mold as Herbert W. Armstrong- he deviates from a lot of his positions on prophecy. He also addresses the foolish “No man knows the day or the hour” statement (If Christ is opening the seven seals of Revelation, wouldn’t he now know a timeline?)
If you want actual prophecies- read the book. He’s stated very boldly specific individuals are going to die and in what order (Rod Meredith, Richard Ames, Gerald Flurry, Dave Pack, John Ritenbaugh). If that’s not a specific prophecy, what is? And obviously there’s not a whole lot of time to wait for that fulfillment.
And what are you sad tormented souls going to do when your sources of entertainment are gone?
Ronald Weinland is a good and honest man, humble and dedicated to overcoming base human nature (you know, the one epitomized and displayed here by most present). And in the grand scheme of things, does anything else matter but that? Can any of you honestly claim similar?
Well, Tony, as far as whether I’m a good and honest man, I don’t have a horde of ex-cult members and family of current cult members who consider me the opposite of good. Nor does the government have sufficient doubt of my honesty to indict me for criminal tax fraud. Can you honestly claim the same about Ronald Weinland?
It’s five years later and none of the five individuals you mention have died. Five years is a lot more than a whole lot of time for five old men to die to specifically verify God’s own end-time prophet as truly His representative according to the very test he himself defined. What are you going to do with these revelations? What are you going to do when Christ doesn’t return as prophesied by your spiritual idol next year on the Memorial Day weekend?
By the way, it was 3 years ago today that Ronald Weinland reissued his death curse against anyone who would mock him. Here I am, still mocking away. Since then, Ron has spiritualized the deaths of his mockers. Personally, I feel exactly the same spiritually.
