False Prophet Ronald Weinland and members from as far away as Georgia and Virginia were in Columbia. Ron is getting lots of mileage out of the book of Daniel and plans several more sermons blathering about it.
Ron stated that since the dollar was going to be worthless by the Feast of Tabernacles that members could spend their second tithe to travel long distances to see their spiritual idol while they still can. But save enough for Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread. And if Ronnie’s criminal trial in March doesn’t end well for him, will people want to attend a feast with Johnny speaking for 8 days particularly since he won’t be a spirit being with the last name of Elohim.
Ron mocked the world for it’s buy-now-pay-later attitude. But then he’s suggested that his members should buy stuff that way because after all the dollar will soon be worthless and you won’t have to pay it back. But then he was suggesting that in 2008 and the bills have come due.
Ronnie made an odd statement, that this was the second day around Jericho. I replayed it to make sure that I heard it correctly. I thought that one of Ronnie’s days of “marching around Jericho” was one of his 140-day half-a-times and that we are in the seventh and last of those. But Ronnie has so much symbology to distract his membership from the fact that he’s batting .000 when it comes to fulfilled prophecy, that sometimes he gets his symbols confused, such as mixing up numbers for thunders, and the dates for seals and trumpets. Perhaps he’s thinking it’s the 2nd time marching around Jericho as the Israelites did 7 times on the 7th day. If we divide the 140-day half-a-time into sevenths, each seventh is 20 days and today is the 21st day or the start of the 2nd seventh. But if Ronnie explained that previously, I missed in amongst all his blather. And what marching went on during the last 20 days? Only thing Ronnie can point to is an interview on a low-powered radio station on the eastern shores of Maryland which convinced no one that he’s a prophet, not even the host who evidently had not researched Ron and all his prior prophetic failures. Maybe Ron will ramp things up and finally demonstrate one of his Witness Powers by calling down a plague or turning some water into blood. Or who knows? Maybe even striking down one of his mockers.
And maybe I missed his explanation of the fifth trumpet, which he promised at sometime on January 7th when he said:
…… I was asked a great question concerning the five months spoken of in Revelation concerning the events of the description of the 5th Trumpet. It’s a good question and it’s being asked a lot right now because it’s like – 5 months… wait a minute, we’re at 5 months! Just wait! God reveals everything in His time and it isn’t time yet for a specific sermon to be given on that. Maybe it’ll come next Sabbath, I don’t know yet. I have no idea what the sermon’s going to be!
A full month in and still no explanation from God. And maybe I missed the outcome of this statement from March 12 of last year:
So again, some cannot wait for me to say that I am not a prophet, or to say that I am a false prophet. Indeed, no one has long to wait do they? Isn’t that amazing? May 27, 2012 is not too far away and if Europe hasn’t risen by early 2012 and if China does not begin destroying the earth before that date, then the reality would be manifest much sooner, obviously. You don’t have to wait until 2012. As far as the question they ask; what would I do? Well, first I’d repent before God and the Church. I’d acknowledge my sin and pray that God have mercy upon me for being so horribly presumptuous.
Have I missed Europe arising? Have I missed the rampage of the Asiatic hordes led by China? Or have I missed Ronnie repenting before the church? Oh yeah. Now I remember — to repent means to “think differently” which does not mean showing regret or remorse or acknowledging sin. Just means that you changed your mind. Which Ronnie has as he still claims that Jesus returns on schedule on the eve of Pentecost and somehow (we’re waiting to find how) the five months of torment following the 5th trumpet are going to be squeezed into just 3 weeks.
