Post-Feast Focus

False Prophet Ronald Weinland has sharpened his #2 pencils and here is his first post-feast blog post.  Lots of sanctifying in the last year and a half.  What happened a year and a half ago? Or maybe it’s what didn’t happen.

—–  Ronnie’s reinterpretation of events ———-

We have been blessed to be able to observe another Feast of Tabernacles in unity and peace in this end-time. We had believed that the previous two Feasts would be our last before Christ’s return. I’m certain that it is the hope and desire of each of you that this year’s Feast will prove to be the last in this age.

Over the past couple of years, God has blessed us with far greater understanding of the immense depth of true bondage in which this world is held captive. With deeper insight, we “see” this cruelty upon mankind far more clearly, and we therefore hurt more fully for this world that suffers in it. Over the past few years, that suffering has been growing more intense as an evil spirit world has increasingly become more agitated, as it knows its time is running out.

Indeed, we long for the beginning fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles at Christ’s coming and the end of this world’s suffering under Satan’s influence and rule. If we did not have such a deep yearning desire that this age end soon, something would be very wrong and spiritually amiss in our life.

God has truly blessed us mightily by stirring up such longing anticipation, expectation, and “want” within us, as it is so very good that we “do so want” His Kingdom to come. We see a world that is on the brink of collapse, but it seemingly continues to be propped up and kept from collapse. That is true! It is being allowed to continue until the very moment God says “no more.” God is in control of the perfect timing to bring about all the final events that are to occur before His Son returns on a Pentecost.

The Almighty God has given us a focus “from Pentecost to Pentecost.” We do not yet know what this remaining year holds in store for us or this world. We continue to move forward, seeking unity with God and with His Church. At some “moment” in time, the world around us will quickly change, and God has made us ready for that time. We are now ready for whatever lies ahead for whenever those changes begin to quickly bring this age to a close.

See God
After a Feast of Tabernacles, once people have returned to their home, job, and normal routine in life, there can be a strong let down. During the Feast, most people have had the opportunity to leave the world behind and to “taste” of the Millennium where there is unity and singleness of spirit in a unique setting of fellowship and spiritual feasting for eight days. After experiencing that and then being thrust back into this evil world, a strong let down can (and often does) occur. Be determined, before God, to fight against such a letdown that can drag you down spiritually as well. Instead, seek God’s help to be strong and of good courage to press forward and “finish” whatever work that is still before us.

Everyone should be sobered by how God has been sanctifying His Church over the past year and a half. Although it is a difficult process to go through and experience along the way, it does make the body stronger. Such powerful sanctification and cleansing coming so strongly from God should stir us up spiritually with great anticipation for what lies ahead. We truly need to “see God” more fully for what He is doing because it reveals much about an urgency in our “being made ready” and fully prepared for what now lies ahead.

In large part, we have now been made ready. This is not a time to feel any “letdown.” This is the time we should seek to have a more eager excitement for how, why, and the way God has led us to where we are now at this very time in His plan and purpose being worked out.

In my 44 years in God’s Church, there has been only one other time of sanctification and cleansing that is comparable to what we have experienced over the past year and a half. It is when God renewed strength in Herbert W. Armstrong after a fairly long period of physical weakness and illness. God brought Mr. Armstrong back with great strength, power, and a purpose-filled focus to set the Church “back on the right track” and to finish the work of the gospel going into all the world to the degree God had determined.

During the beginning of that period of time, as Mr. Armstrong was being renewed in strength, the State of California attempted to end Mr. Armstrong’s ministry as they tried to change the course of God’s Church. Through this process of God restoring Mr. Armstrong’s health and his focus for the Church, coupled with an assault to take over God’s Church, God worked to sanctify and cleanse the Church. This resulted in not only members, but also evangelists and other high-ranking ministers being removed from God’s Church. After all this had occurred, it was followed by the greatest work yet that God did in and through Herbert W. Armstrong and the Church in order to finish the commission (work) of Matthew 24:14.

God has prepared us for what is ahead, whatever that work entails, so that we can finish our commission to the degree He intends. We do not have all the answers to all the timing that is involved, but in His time, God will reveal it to His Church. Our task is to be patient, live in faith, hold fast to what God has given to this present time, and seek to be zealous and consistent in spirit.

    What Ron is to blind to see is God is removing his people from a sinful organization where people are encouraged to steal, change what the bible says the real sinners are still sitting in pkg.

    This resulted in not only members, but also evangelists and other high-ranking ministers being removed from God’s Church

    From everything I have heard those that LEFT pkg weren’t removed but left when they finally saw what was going on and the lies that were being told and the money that was be misused by the Weinlands not to mention the fact most refused to spy on the people and report back any trouble. Wake up members and realize that your elders are watching what you say and do then reporting back.

  2. The COG-PKG site proclaims that:
    “Ronald Weinland, who is the pastor of God’s Church on earth, has been appointed by the God of Abraham as His end-time prophet to foretell most of the final events leading up to Christ’s return.”

    But in his most recent post, Weinland says: “We had believed that the previous two Feasts would be our last before Christ’s return.”

    As usual, Weinland conveniently fails to point out that they had only “believed” that because HE, WEINLAND had claimed, in accordance with his appointment by the God of Abraham, that God had revealed to him that those previous two Feasts would be the last before Christ’s return!

    Now, of course, he seems to have entirely lost the ability to receive the God of Abraham’s revelations, and instead of foretelling most of the final events, Weinland is reduced to admitting lamely that:

    “We do not yet know what this remaining year holds in store for us or this world.”

    What is the God of Abraham doing? Has he forgotten that he appointed Ronald Weinland to be his end-time prophet?

    Forgetful God of Abraham!

    All that the end-time prophet can manage now is a tentative little squeak that:

    “I’m certain that it is the hope and desire of each of you that this year’s Feast will prove to be the last in this age.” And then goes on to say: “We do not have all the answers to all the timing that is involved, but in His time, God will reveal it to His Church.:

    Hang on, Ronald me lad – what was it you said in your Book of Revealed Truth “2008 God’s Final Witness”? Oh yes, that’s right, on page 21 you were talking about the Two Witnesses (you were one of them, remember?) and you said………………

  3. My memory of HWA’s “mission” after GTA and others got the boot was of a very old, angry man preaching the same thing over and over again on each TV show. He kept going on about “giving” and “getting”. I swear he said the same thing on each show. And Ron calls this the greatest work God did through HWA?

    Methinks the Almighty can do better.

  4. FedUp, we all need to look beyond the immediate events of the past such as the renewed Herbert Armstrong period from 1980 to 1986 to see the broader view of the consequences and results: In the end, that “greatest work God did through HWA” turned into all of the Ambassador College Campuses being sold off and in some cases destroyed, the complete reversal of doctrines and the fragmentation of the sect which made virtually no impact on the world as a tempest in a teapot — and even if we counted the photo ops with “world leaders” one wonders where they are now: Most died and some have been in prison.

    So if we look at these fruits as a template of what is to come in the PKG, the Weinland Work, which is even more pathetic, is nothing more than dust in the wind which will end up as totally nothing.

    The only thing the PKG members have to gain is loss.

  5. Nice whitewash of the reality that everyone who left did so because it is a church of blatant lies and pointless drama.

    So very tasteful, spinning it as some grand divine work, when it is only a cult trying to clean the egg off its face.

    Hey remaining members, you are being spun tales about why people left, so that you stay ignorant and eating up all the other tales they keep telling you. You are the core group of idiots locked in to service Ron’s family for the rest of your life.

    Once again, this post becomes true only if you replace each occurrence of the word God with the word Ron.

  9. I can hardly stand to read Ron’s or any other C.O.G.’s personal understandings! I find them to be dishonest , whether that is the intent or not! They are somehow without understanding in the teaching of the Scripture that they claim to be their authority! Of course they need those tithe payers to keep them in the easy lifestyle! They will teach the Sabbath, Holy days, Clean and unclean food laws, Tithing and how all this is the sign they are the only true Church Of God on earth today! They will omit the Prayer of Christ when praying to the Father ” I pray that they (The Church) may become ‘One’ Father , as we are”. Hundreds of splits and most claiming to be the “Only” true church! What hypocrites!

    They claim the Sabbath to be the Sign between them and God. It is the Mark, Sign, or Seal, as all mean the same! When according to Scripture it is the “Holy Spirit” that is the Sign, Seal , or Mark that distinguishes that! “If one has not his spirit he is none of his” (Paraphrased) Whether one believes in the Scriptures or not, the Fruits that describe the attributes of God’s spirit a wonderful world to live in! Love, Kindness, Compassion, No hate, No stealing, No coveting, Adultery and all other ways that even nature itself has proven to be a better way!
    No they won’t admit they are wrong! I cannot see how that can represent the God of Scripture! I tell you, the God of scriptures would dictate “Tithes” would be given to help the poor! To feed , clothe and shelter those , our counterparts, in the world we live in! What would that describe unless it is Love and Compassion for all? Just Saying! I am unloading again! Gordon

  11. Ahh Perch, That;s some catch you have there Randy. I’ll bet you and you mom really enjoyed yourselves spending all that time together fishing. As for me I haven’t caught a perch in years so I’m long overdue. You could actually make a number of meals out of all those perch and possibly feed several people if you choose to do so.(I know of several sport fisherman who are in it just for fun and after catching a fish they remove the hook or lure and toss the fish back into the water)

    I grew up a just few blocks away from the ocean so we’ve have had boats in our family for half a century. My oldest brother still owns a boat and he’s the number one fisherman of our family now. My brother enjoys fishing in both salt and fresh water environments and even though I too have fished in both salt and fresh water I actually prefer fresh water fishing,

    There’s nothing else in the world like being in a pristine area enjoying nature’s beauty with rod, reel and fishing gear on hand. Even though I’ve lived within walking distance of the ocean for most of my life I’ve actually discovered several great fresh water fishing spots in upstate New York. One of my favorite fishing areas is located in the Catskill Mountain rejoin near the town of Roscoe which lays claim to being the trout fishing capitol of the world.

    Randy, I’m glad you and your mom had a great day fishing together. Reading about your experience may give me the incentive to break out my fishing gear and head upstate for a day or two of fresh water fishing. This is of course providing that the nuklear explosions in port cities don’t detonate because if they that would put a real damper on my fishing plans.

  13. Just listened to the announcements for tomorrow and 4 new elders. Pretty soon the whole church will be made up of elders. Then they will start turning on each other. The ones who have been there for years have to be wondering why new people are being ordained and not them. Just remember it is not God doing the ordaining but where you fall in friendship with those in charge. And who has a good pay check.

    You need to wake up and read the transcripts from the trial and you will see who is lying and how is telling the truth. All you have to do is read Audra’s and you will see where Gods money was being spent. Remember Audra doesn’t lie so read for yourself.

    It’s not people leaving because they saw through all the failed prophecies (100% failure rate, the OT penalty for this was death) and tax fraud.

    It’s people being purged by God.

    The good thing in all this purging is that what is left, is the worst of the worst.

  22. What ever Pack says it will be EXACTLY what the COG maggots always say, some variant on “progressive truth,” “God is having mercy,” “Prophecy can = predictions,” “God is revealing something new,” and so on. The ONLY right answer is the one NONE of them will EVER say…”I falsely prophesied, and thus I must remove myself from the ministry.” Weinland himself said that if he didn’t admit being a false prophet after 2008/9 didn’t pan out he would be INSANE to keep going. He kept going. NO COG PROPHECY WILL EVER COME TRUE…BECAUSE IT WAS/IS UTTERED BY A COG. All they have is minor coincidence which they spin to fool idiots that enjoy their own destruction, i.e. their congregations.

  25. Regarding Pack, did they not drop a hint that he will be using HWA’s 1972 explanation? He is going to repeat that he told us that he is not a prophet, implying that if we fell for it, that it is not his fault, but our own. This is the way they work. There is absolutely no sincerity in any of these wolves. They know what they are doing. They know that most are too lazy to study various issues for themselves and draw their own conclusion. Knowing this, they come forth as knights riding white horses to provide the answers for all of mankind’s problems.

    It is time that people grow a pair and toughen up. Learn to say NO. To any PKG member reading this, remember that you will be standing alone before the Most High and He is expecting an answer. You and everyone else, are responsible ONLY to Him, not your local minister. If you see this, then I know that you have access to the internet and the information is at your finger tips. Use the search box in the upper right hand corner and go to the sites that speak about HWA and the former WCG. Use the mind that Yahweh gave you. If you don’t then what use are you to Him when you seemingly cannot even look after yourself and your family?

    Stop making excuses. Your master expects you to take action. Don’t continue to sit in the cow paddy and do nothing. Put your wallet back in your back pocket and walk/run away from these wolves, if you don’t, you become as guilty as them, as they abuse and financially rape all that put their trust in them.

  26. I think the various COG brethren are addicted to anticipation, like they are waiting for the next episode of a TV show they love. They enjoy the possibility of Jesus returning like a teen anticipates possibly having sex with someone who flirts with them. They get excited by maybes and possiblys. They eagerly wait around to see what will happen, like they are going to win the lottery.Thus, you can;t penetrate their thick skulls because they are too full of anticipation of the future to see how badly they are getting f-ed right now. “Just wait…you’ll see that Maggot X is right, and Jesus will return next (week/month/year)…”, “You are not in God’s Church so you don’t understand how awesome and powerful waiting around is…”.Repeat ad nauseam…

  28. Wow Ronco, that is horrific, those HWA letters. Watching them change the story over the months and years.

    Orders of magnitude scummier than crackheads panhandling at the bus station, spinning elaborate tales. HWA really really sounded like a panhandler with no shame or remorse whatsoever.

    Nice touch, asking for loans to the point of just crushing their entire paychecks, than later defaulting on those loans by guilting members into “converting” them into gifts.

    When you’re a frog boiling in water you might not notice your church’s narrative change and manipulate very slowly as months pass by. But if you line up the letters in sequence and read them, to speed up your view of how they morph and change … chills and goosebumps.

    And every splinter that gets mentioned here appears to be identical. Horrifying.

    This stuff could not be any more evil and opposite to God’s and Christ’s teachings, these vipers have no honor.

  29. Ronco, Thanks for posting the interesting link into the writings of HWA. It seems as if there are many similarities between Herbie, Ronnie and Dave but Packman surly wins the Herbie Wan-a-be Contest hands down.

    To the best of my knowledge pkg has never owned their own building (excluding weinland’s private home) during their short history yet a let a luxurious estate with huge world headquarters building. Packman’s new world headquarters is currently up and running as his mail processing center across the street is beginning to take shape. I wonder if there are any good Italian brick layers left in Ohio?

    Architects, miscellaneous tradesman, laborers, landscape workers, parcels of large acreage, state of the art buildings, sidewalks, patios, landscaping, sod, trees and shrubbery plus man made waterfalls w/streams and lakes as well as parking lots, sidewalks and roadways with lighting and drainage don’t come cheap where I come from. It looks as if Packman has broken the bank with this project but at least it was other people’s bank accounts that were broken into to fund his project and not his own personal account.

    PT Barnum was absolutely correct when he said “there’s a sucker born every minute” and my guess is that quite a few thousand of those newborn suckers grew up and morphed into cog members. How many more luxurious buildings will have to be built and how many more final FOT’s in this age have to take place before these suckers finally wake up from their naps and realize they’ve been taken to the cleaners by the likes of Packman, Weinland and rest of the cog leaders who prey upon the innocent?
