PATN, Chapter 1 – Part 1: Who Will Listen?

Now that the Great Tribulation has officially begun, Ronald Weinland is performing his duties by posting his book to his blog in installments since fire-breathing on the prison guards did not have the desired result of his release.

It is not reposted here, for details please see the following post:

Post Site Bio

Here is the third biography Weinland said he would publish. Only 10 days to review and comment before the next start of the Great Tribulation.

—————- Weinland’s Post ————–

This is one of three bios of Ronald Weinland. Each one gives varying information geared uniquely to the site on which it is posted. The other two sites include the Church of God–PKG website and the Prophesied End-Time website, a book website that offers the three books he has written that are free. The last book will be published and made available in early 2016 and is entitled, Prophesy Against the Nations.

Ronald Weinland became a baptized member of God’s Church in September of 1969 in the organization of the Worldwide Church of God. His baptism at age 20 was at a time when he was just entering his senior year of college, majoring in Mathematics and Physics. In 1972, he began attending Ambassador College in Bricket Wood, England, which was one of three colleges that was established by Herbert W. Armstrong, the apostle to God’s Church. Then in 1974, he transferred to Ambassador College in Texas and graduated in May of 1975 with a degree in Theology.

He married Laura Short, whom he met at Ambassador College, and they moved to Houston, Texas, where they lived for several years, and it was there that Ronald Weinland was first ordained on Passover of 1981. Then, a year later in 1982, he was asked to become part of the full time ministry of the Worldwide Church of God. In the middle of 1994, after serving in different locations in the ministry, Ronald and Laura, along with their two children, were transferred to pastor the churches in Toledo and Findlay, Ohio.

Mr. Armstrong died in January of 1986. After his death, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr. rose to the position of replacing Mr. Armstrong as the one who would lead the Worldwide Church of God, even though he was not an apostle. By December of 1994, the same year Ronald and his family had relocated to Toledo, Ohio, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr. gave a sermon in Atlanta, Georgia, where he set out to change every major doctrine of God’s Church. It was on that day that the beginning of the Apostasy (great falling away from the truth) that was foretold by Paul occurred.

After that event, only one-third of the Church tried to hold to the truths God had delivered to them through Herbert W. Armstrong. That third consisted of approximately 31,000 baptized members who then became scattered and gradually split apart into over 600 different organizations. Another third went back to false religious practices God had originally called them out of, while the rest simply gave up on religious practice altogether.

Satan was allowed to attack God’s own Church that had become spiritually lukewarm after Mr. Armstrong’s death, and as God prophetically stated He would do, He spewed the Church out of His mouth. The Apostasy became the means through which God separated the Church from Himself and began to cleanse it. God cleansed those in His Church who would humble themselves and repent of the spirit of pride and lethargy that had led to the Church becoming lukewarm. Some began to repent immediately, and God then began gathering a remnant from all those who had been scattered in order to strengthen, mold, and fashion a people who would be made ready for Christ’s second coming. After all the destruction, confusion, and growing opposition that was developing in doctrine among all who had become scattered after that Apostasy, God worked to fully reestablish His Church by Pentecost of 1998. God did so through a small group who then took on the name describing what God was going to accomplish within them—the Church of God – Preparing for the Kingdom of God.

God made Ronald Weinland both an apostle and prophet in order to fulfill a commission He would give to him as the counterpart to John who wrote the Book of Revelation. John did not understand what he had written, as that was not given to him, since what he had written was not for his time period, but instead, was for the end-time. It is for this reason that God raised up a prophet at the end who would be the counterpart to John and who would be used to reveal to the Church and the world what God had given to John to record. John and Ronald are the only two whom God made both apostles and prophets.

God’s purpose for mankind is for all to have the potential to become part of His Family. Therefore, God is once again emphasizing the importance of family just as He has at other times throughout the past 6,000 years through those with whom He has worked. So God is now working through Ronald and his wife, Laura, to be His two end-time witnesses written about in Revelation 11 who appear on the scene at the very end of the end-time.

As part of God’s purpose to emphasize the importance of family, He has also prepared and placed both of their children into important areas of service within His Church. Their daughter, Audra, has been ordained a prophet, even as Debra was a prophet in the time of the Judges of Israel, and she has been placed to serve over the Church in the U.K., Ireland, and continental Europe. Their son, Jeremy, has been ordained to serve as an evangelist to God’s Church.

As with so many whom God has called as prophets and apostles, most all have been imprisoned and/or killed by the governments of this world. Although some history has different accounts, it is believed that all the original disciples who became God’s apostles, including Paul, were all imprisoned and killed, except for John. John was imprisoned on the Isle of Patmos by the Roman government, and it is there that he was given the Book of Revelation to write.

In like manner, and as his counterpart, Ronald Weinland was falsely imprisoned by the government of the United States for evading to pay taxes. Some of that is covered in the other bios. However, very soon now, the truth about what occurred is going to be clearly revealed. For God’s end-time prophets, God reveals there will be great power that He is going to give to both of these witnesses. God has purposed for them to become directly engaged in administering much of the correction and humbling that must take place in this world, and also within the Church that was scattered, before God sends His Son to take over the governments of this world and reign over every nation.

Just as John was in prison when given the Book of Revelation to write, God has given Ronald to write a third and final book that is entitled, Prophesy Against the Nations. This book reveals more fully why at least half the world’s population will die before Christ returns. It also reveals, however, that it is in the hands of people and nations whether an even vastly larger number of people will die in this final end-time or if hundreds of millions can be saved when catastrophic physical tribulation strikes the earth, along with a third world war that will eventually lead into a full scale nuclear war. God has directed this revelation to be sent out to the world. In addition, God has also revealed that nearly 63,000 people from the environs of the Church that was scattered can potentially be saved to live into the Millennium. It is also revealed why a much smaller number than this may survive.

Post Feast Focus

More hocus-pocus for Ron’s follower’s to focus upon.

————-  Weinland’s Post —————-

As always, the Feast of Tabernacles seems to go by so quickly, and then everyone is thrust right back into the world. This is a follow-up to the final message that I gave on the Last Great Day.

Most have now returned from the Feast and are back into their normal routines of life. Those who were able to attend a Feast site had a brief break from this world and a taste of the Millennium that is now very rapidly approaching. Often, after experiencing the Feast, there can be a real let down. In one way, some of that let down should be a healthy part of one’s experience since it magnifies the contrast between the way of this sick world and the Millennium we long to see established.

However, that let down should be an experience that passes quickly as we then recognize the need to once again become sharply focused on all that is yet before us. As everyone is returning to their routines, let’s all strive to make this year one of sharp spiritual focus.

We only have a little less than a month remaining of this Year of Dedication. Our focus needs to first be on finishing this year with zeal. Strive to put more into your spiritual relationship with God as you work to become even more dedicated to serving Him faithfully and zealously all the way up to Christ’s coming. We do not know all that fully lies ahead for us, but we need to be strong and courageous as we press forward to finish the work God has given us to do.

At the end of his sermon, “Give Thanks and Rejoice,” Jeremy made a reference to this special Year of Dedication. He had just gone through the story of Solomon and the dedication of the temple. I’m going to quote what he stated:

“So, this year we have been going through our own dedication as well, a final part of the measuring of the temple. We are doing something similar to what happened back then (the physical dedication of the temple), however, it’s even more important. Let’s look at a section from the post from after last year’s Feast, entitled, ‘A Year of Dedication.’”

He then quoted from a paragraph in that post, and here is that quote:

“In reviewing what God has revealed, the last year for the measuring of the temple is to be a ‘Year of Dedication’ for God’s Church. It will be a year of preparation (PKG) for the great work that yet lies ahead and the actual coming of Jesus Christ in his Kingdom. We will be working to more fully dedicate God’s house—the temple of God—our lives with God and Christ dwelling in us—through prayer as we actively seek and apply ourselves (in work) to fully offer up sacrifices (of self) on the altar before God. Much of what this will actually involve in the lives of God’s people will be covered more thoroughly in the series that follows.”

That which Jeremy was focusing upon and the quote that followed say so very much. As I just mentioned, we have a little less than a month remaining in this very special year. Make it the most zealous month of them all, as you focus on dedicating yourself even more so to God, and then once this month is over, don’t just quit applying yourself, but be determined to continue utilizing many of the tools you have been developing as part of your routine. Seek to continue to draw closer to God as you work to offer up even more of self in sacrifice upon the altar before God. Why stop seeking to more fully dedicate our lives once this year has come to a close? Instead, this is the time to really press forward.

On another note, we are already planning for next year’s Feast, and I believe we will have one. You can be praying about the preparations and planning that need to go into it. We do not know all that lies ahead of us in the sense of “when” major catastrophic end-time events are going to begin. It appears we may well have some time—perhaps at least a year—before some of the really bad things begin that would otherwise prevent us from gathering together at a site. Although we may begin to experience some very difficult things around us, I believe God is showing us that we may well have the ability to still come together for at least one more year and possibly two. That is the focus we need to have for this next year. At some point, we will not have such freedom and we cannot begin to imagine what that fully means.

The new book is timely in all of this as well. It will not likely be ready for publication until I am back home, so I am expecting it to be early in the year. If it does come out at this time, it will be a great benefit to the Church and it will be a great spiritual boost at a time that can be a little more difficult. This is due to the long stretch of time from the Feast period to the Passover observances.

So please be praying about the progress of the book, which includes the editing and final refining of it, as well as the work involved in translating it into the other eight languages. Those involved in all of this truly have need of your prayers. You should find what is written in it to be exceedingly exciting and a boost to enhance our spiritual focus and purpose that yet remains in front of us. The book has an important title that is itself scriptural and very prophetic: Prophesy Against the Nations.

Once I am back home, there will be sermons that will be given that help magnify and explain more thoroughly to the Church what has been written concerning what God has revealed in it. One especially important focus will be on the revelation that there is potential for many prophetic events to change, and this primarily involves the last three trumpets.

In addition, I also want to mention that there will be three posts that I’ve written that will be posted after this one. They are not long, and each week we will post a new one. These are personal bios and will replace the two that are currently posted on two sites which currently are exactly the same. The Church site has not contained a bio, but we are now going to add one to it. The first post we are sending out is a rewrite of the one that had recently been placed on the book website.

The reason we are posting these is because each one is different from the other, as each is geared to the site where it will be placed. We want you to be aware of the change and think that you will find them informative, especially when considering what is soon going to begin happening in this world and the work we will be doing within this upcoming 7th prophetic end-time period of 1,260 days before Christ returns.

More on Prophecy

Five weeks after the last post by the convicted felon and False Prophet Ronald Weinland, here’s another series of drivel.  It includes gems such as “Many prophecies are never even revealed until after they have been fulfilled.”  Replace “Many” with “All”… let’s just restate.  “No prophecies are revealed to God’s most formidable prophet Ronald Weinland — after something happens he twists scripture to make it fit.”

—————— Weinland’s posting ———————

This is a follow-up to the last post concerning the subject of prophecy. God is now beginning to give much more insight and understanding into this subject. It will take time to fully digest what is being revealed, especially in that which concerns the main purpose for why God is revealing these things now.

The best way to approach this is to build upon all that God is giving, a little at a time, and by doing so, we can construct a better foundation on which to build. We are living in exciting times, although they are very trying times as well. Yet it is within such an environment that we have been able to make some of the greatest spiritual growth, especially in the area of living by faith.

Herbert W. Armstrong would often refer to the fact that a third of the Bible is prophecy and that ninety percent of that concerns the end-time. It is rather fascinating when you take that another step further. Since the time of the Apostasy, we have come to see that a large amount of that ninety percent concerns the Church.

The first five seals of Revelation are solely about the Church. That is incredible, and the remnant has lived it. Those first five seals include much of the prophecy written about things the Church has experienced, including that which concerns the last two eras. We also see that even when the other seals were opened, the Church and God’s servants are still at the forefront of all that is mentioned.

We now understand that many of Christ’s prophecies, as well as many in the Old Testament have been about the Church. Much of the Book of Ezekiel is far more about the Church than it is about ancient Israel, yet there is also a duality that runs throughout that book that applies to modern physical Israel, as well as spiritual Israel—the Church.

Prophecy actually reveals the power and glory of God to fulfill His word, but it also reveals much about Him. We will be able to come to see that more clearly the further we go into this end-time and in the things that will be given to us over the next several months.

It was stated in the last post, “God has many ways to fulfill prophecy.” Prophecy was not recorded so that people could study it and then come to understand what it is saying. It wasn’t given so that mankind could try to figure it out. It doesn’t work that way. God has shown the Church that the only way a prophecy can become understood is if God reveals it through His prophets, or sometimes, even to apostles. This is simply the way God chooses to work with mankind and also His Church.

For many, there is something unique about prophecy that seems to spark great curiosity, along with a strong desire to know what God has written. It can be a very natural thing to want to know what is recorded that is prophetic, but it can also be spiritually unhealthy if one pursues such a thing with too much persistence or if one begins drawing their own conclusions. A person needs to use wisdom when dealing with things concerning prophecy. Wisdom cries out that there is no point whatsoever to pursue meaning that has not yet been revealed.

When God reveals the meaning of specific prophecy then it is good to strive to learn and understand the meaning that has been given, but not to go beyond that. This would be similar in seeking to grasp and better understand a new truth when it is given, but it is not wise to go beyond that to come up with new truth on our own.

In all candor, the Church has not necessarily handled this well in times past, but instead, has tended to delve into much speculation. A little speculation can then become more widespread and can begin to be taken as the truth. So we do need to exercise wisdom when dealing with what is only in God’s control to reveal when He so chooses.

These things are being stated because the Church is going to begin being given much more knowledge and understanding of end-time prophetic events and how God uses prophecy. This post and perhaps some that are coming will begin to give some basic building blocks that will help establish an ability to far more easily grasp that which God is now giving to His Church. Yet it will come in its time, when God determines it, and that will not happen right away. It will take several months before we work through this process. The timing is, as it always is—in God’s timing.

How It Is Revealed
Prophecy is one of those things that people often wrestle with as they try to work out what it means, how it will become fulfilled, or with whom it is about. Often, something stated about prophecy is taken by people to mean that it cannot change in any fashion or must happen in only one specific way. That is not true. God has many ways in which He can fulfill His own word, and again, the only way to know what any prophecy means, or is saying, is by what God reveals through His own prophets.

Although I find prophecy exciting, over time I have learned that unless it is God’s time to reveal something, I simply will not be able to know it. So I haven’t worried nor focused much at all on areas of prophecy that God simply has not drawn me to or is revealing. I have learned that in His time, if it is needful, He will give what is needed. So in many areas, I simply stay away because it is futile to delve into them unless God just gives it. Just because I am a prophet does not mean I understand prophecies. I can only know those prophecies that God gives to me to know, and absolutely no more.

Many prophecies are never even revealed until after they have been fulfilled. In this manner, God is glorified when we are later shown what He had written so long ago, and then how He brought it to pass. This is how many of the prophecies concerning Christ were revealed. The disciples came to see them later, after they had already been fulfilled. They did not know at the time, unless Christ specifically told them.

When the Church experienced the Apostasy, all that the Church had known and all that was taught, was that it was coming. We knew it was going to happen in the end-time, but we did not have a clue what it meant and how really destructive it would be. We didn’t have the slightest inkling of what this would mean for the Church. No one remotely conceived of the scattering and decimation it would bring upon the Church. Then once it happened, how many recognized it for what it was? Nobody! Absolutely nobody! The scattered body to this day still will not acknowledge that what the Church experienced was that prophesied Apostasy. Their leaders have not told them because they cannot “see” it.

The Church that was scattered did not grasp nor ever acknowledge what had been prophesied about Laodicea, that the Church at the end-time would be fully spewed out of God’s mouth and that the Church would be separated from Him spiritually. We only came to know that later, as God revealed to us what had happened to all.

Even after nearly 150,000 people experienced this Apostasy, how many understood that the stones of the temple Christ spoke of in Matthew 24 in which not one was left on another had now been fulfilled? The Church was shaken throughout and all were cast down, but they did not know this had been fulfilled. Who proclaimed the man of sin, the son of perdition, had been revealed? No one! Who knew that Matthew 25 was a prophecy that pertained to all the Church and that all (all ten virgins) would be caught spiritually asleep? No one! Why? There were no prophets.

Concerning the first five seals, who knew these were about the Church and not the world? No one until God later revealed it to His Church! These things simply go to show that much of prophecy is not really fully understood until it has already happened, and then God reveals what it is that He fulfilled. Even after many things are fulfilled, it is not obvious to others. It is still not understood until God reveals it, and does so through His prophets.

When God has recorded prophecy in scripture, He has recorded things that He will bring to pass. How He does so is not always set. There is not one way for doing it, although many believe otherwise.

Some Are Set and Others Can Change
There are some things written in prophecy that are set and cannot be changed, and there are other things that are not set and can change.

During Noah’s day, God gave people 100 years in which they could choose to listen to Him if they wanted to do so. God already knew their minds had become so corrupted that no one would listen, yet they did have the choice. They chose not to listen. God told Noah that he was going to bring a great flood upon the earth because of the evil of mankind, and Noah told this to others. This prophecy God gave through Noah was set and the flood was going to happen. Since God already knew their minds had become so corrupted that they would not listen, this prophecy was set and it could not be changed. It became a matter of a set judgment from God.

All the prophecies concerning Jesus Christ were set and God fulfilled them in explicit detail, without any change or variation.

Prophecy concerning the seven revivals of Europe is set and the fact that ten nations will emerge out of the seventh revival is set and cannot be changed. But who those ten nations are have not yet been set, except for one, and that is Germany.

The prophecy concerning WWIII is set, and the extent of the destruction that will be caused by mankind is set. God is going to allow mankind to use the weapons it has made so that people will have to come to acknowledge that if He did not intervene mankind would destroy itself. Mankind must come to see the extent of the destruction that has come as a result of his own ways. Over 2.3 billion people will die as a result. That is set, and if God did not intervene when He did, nothing would be left alive. The level of this destruction covered by the Sixth Trumpet prophecy will not change.

The Seven Trumpets of Revelation are set, and the United States of America will collapse as a result of the first four trumpet prophecies. That will not change. The extent of the destruction from these can change, and now may even become worse, yet this can all change also. This is an example of where one of the greatest factors for change can occur, and that is fully dependent upon who and how many will listen to God and then begin to change. If that occurs, there is great room for change within a prophecy.

There is more that will come out later about much of this, but these are some of the beginning building blocks for being able to come to greater understanding of how God works within the structure He has established through what He has had recorded in prophecy and has inspired to be written about it in these end-times.

Everyone is familiar with Jonah who was a prophet of God, whom God had sent to Nineveh with a prophetic message that within a specific period of time He was going to completely destroy them because of their evil. That great city-state listened and began to repent. The king had sent out a decree that all people and animals should not eat or drink, but that they should fast before God, and that they should turn from their evil way and the violence in their hands.

The king concluded by saying, “Who can know if perhaps God will turn from His fierce anger so that we do not perish?”

If people will begin to listen to God, and to turn from their evil ways, then God’s will above all things, is that specific prophecy directed against them can be changed. If it is known that there is a “great potential” to bring people to listen to God and repent, then God may well alter parts of prophecy to allow for change.

There is a basic structure that God has given for the fulfillment of prophetic events. God will bring that to pass, similar to following a blueprint in the construction of a building. The primary structure that is to be built can be set, while yet allowing for many other details that can be changed within it. Most all of that allowance is directly connected to whether people will listen to God or not. Obviously, mankind’s track record for listening is quite poor, but even in this, if there is a means whereby people can be moved to listen and repent, then God will pursue that if it is possible. He is a God of mercy.

The example of Nineveh is a good one when looking at this very thing. God’s purpose all along was to show mercy and not to destroy Nineveh. Yet the evil had become so great that God would have destroyed them if they had not responded. God knew that there was potential to turn Nineveh from their violent and evil ways. How God worked with Nineveh to deliver to them the prophecy about their destruction is what stirred them to respond so that they actually were moved to believe what Jonah told them.

You know what the record of mankind is like concerning whether or not they will listen to God. It has been quite dismal. During more than 50 years of Herbert W. Armstrong warning mankind, no one listened and began to make changes except those whom God specifically called to become part of His Church. Many world leaders liked him and heard what he had to say, but they didn’t listen to God. God has clearly revealed the bull-headedness of mankind, which resists and refuses to listen to Him. Only at a time when mankind brings great destruction upon itself, or when God intervenes to chasten mankind, will it show signs of a willingness to listen to Him. However, even then, many simply will not, no matter how bad things get.

The basic structure given in the prophecies about this end-time have a detailed outline describing them. There are Seven Seals, and at the opening of the Sixth Seal, the First Thunder of the Seven Thunders sounded. The Seventh Seal is divided into Seven Trumpets, and then the Seventh Trumpet is divided into the Seven Last Plagues.

This is a very specific structure that God gave for a final countdown of end-time events that would lead to His Son returning as King of kings. Although this is a very strongly structured outline of prophetic events for the end-time, some of the details to occur within this structure have changed and they may change a few times more the closer we are to Christ actually standing once again on the Mount of Olives.

A Rapidly Changing World
There is one very important area that God is now revealing where great change can occur, and it is in those things that will be fulfilled concerning the Fifth Trumpet. The Church has already experienced some of the fulfillment that was spiritual in nature that was revealed to be part of this trumpet sounding. However, there is much change that can now occur in how and what is fulfilled in the remaining details of this trumpet. God is now working to give many more greater “potential” to now be saved through this period in order to live on into the Millennium. Some of this involves things that are much like what happened to Nineveh and how they were prepared to listen to God’s prophecy against them.

However, even though God works to give mankind greater ability to become motivated to listen, through unique means geared to humble them so that they might start turning from their evil ways, that does not mean that they will so. People always have free choice, and as long as they do, the outcome of things cannot be fully known.

A lot has changed in this world since 2008. Mostly, the world has become more corrupted. During this period of the past seven years, the United States has accelerated its corruption the most, and at an alarming pace. But beyond this, its pride has accelerated even more. This has had a great impact on the way prophecy will now be fulfilled against it, as compared to what would have happened in the 3½ years before Pentecost of 2012.

It is coming, but for now, it is important to know that through the first half of 2008, God was moving forward with His plan to have Christ return on Pentecost of 2012. What happened and why is an awesomely inspiring story about God’s greatness and His power to fulfill His prophetic word. By mid-2008, God made a judgment to alter certain prophetic details within the overall structure of prophecy concerning when His Son would become established as King of kings. God’s prophecies are not limited nor constrained by time nor are they closed to matters pertaining to mercy.

As a result of how rapidly the United States has become so much more deeply corrupted and filling in pride over seven years, the attitude of other nations toward it has also accelerated in such a fashion that details concerning prophetic events that would have been fulfilled to humble it and overthrow it have been changing. There is actually far, far greater potential for other nations to now listen and repent compared to that of the United States.

All that is coming and will be allowed to happen during great tribulation on this earth is about humbling the world to a point that when Jesus Christ once again stands upon the Mount of Olives they will be ready to listen.

All that was going to transpire before Pentecost of 2012 was a direct result of more specific judgment that had come upon the world, and specifically the United States above all others. That which is transpiring now is a matter of God working with the world in a different manner than He was before 2012, when an execution of judgment was simply going to be poured out. Now, similar in purpose of design in what God did with Nineveh, He is now working to provide a far greater potential for many more people throughout the world to become motivated to truly listen to Him.

What happened to the Two Witnesses’ third trip to Jerusalem on Nov 7 to start their jobs as Witnesses for the third time on November 8? Or at least the Silent Witness by herself, as the spokesman witness will still be in prison if not transferred to house arrest, as his sentence for criminal tax evasion does not end until February.

Maybe travel funds are tightening up, with more PKG members coming to the realization that Ron is a false prophet. Or as described in a comment on the last post, deciding not to pay tithes due to doubts that it would be used properly.  These doubts arose after reading transcripts from Ron’s criminal trial — transcripts that would not be available publicly unless the transcription fees had been paid.  It was Ron’s criminal defense team that ordered the transcripts and therefore had to pay the fees, although ultimately it was PKG tithepayers who paid for it.  At least they got some small value for the money they thought was going to further God’s work but instead was going to further the interests of the god who lives between Ron’s ears.

Copies of the trial transcripts are available by clicking the Criminal Trial link in the banner on the top of every page on this blog.  Those copies are free, but if you prefer you can download the files for a small fee from the Federal Court web server.

God’s Work

Seems that God gave Ron a heart attack so he could write this post.  And have time to develop yet more new signs and lying wonders.

————- False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s posting ————-

As an introduction to this post, I am going to share with everyone that I am currently, deeply involved in some studies, future planning, and sermon preparations that God is giving to me in a very unique manner and timing. When considering where we are in time, all of this that is happening is tremendously exciting to me. It is something that I look forward to sharing more fully at some point in the near future; however, that will not happen until we are closer to the end of this special Year of Dedication.

Due to this focus that I have, the posts will likely be spread out a little more than in the past – perhaps once every three to five weeks, rather than about every two to three weeks as I’ve tried to do in the past. In addition, they will be shorter and a little more to the point, as the last one was, and as this one is now.

We are closing in on the end of this 6th prophetic period of 1,260 days since the Apostasy and getting ready to plunge into the last one, the 7th one that leads to Christ’s coming. With that focus, it is always important to remember that this is God’s Work – we are God’s work. As we move into the end of this special time of dedication, I find it quite awesome that God is leading me in the manner that He is, at the pace that He is, and with the kind of focus that He is.

Something that I would like to share with you now is to say that if I had not had the heart attack, I would not have had the opportunity to do what I am doing now. So as strange as it may sound, I am so “charged up” over what I have been given to do that I really am thankful for having had it.

Current Health
That brings me to giving you a bit of a health update, as I have been getting quite a few requests from people for more information. There isn’t a lot to tell because things around here happen very slowly. I have been seen by a government cardiologist, which probably has its own significance, but from what I understand, he has requested for me to have a stress test. Some have told me that I shouldn’t take it, but I am. God will take care of all that needs to be taken care of in this matter. I am very attuned to my physical strength and weakness at this time and will not do anything in that test beyond what I feel very comfortable doing.

Actually, I am doing very, very well. I am able to walk a fair distance each day without feeling any stress whatsoever.

The stress test probably will not take place for another month at least. From what I understand, it is to help determine if my heart is back up to a level of strength to perform the procedure to insert the other two stents. So after the stress test, with the way things operate here it would likely be an additional month or two before the actual procedure would be done. That would be fine with me so that I can continue doing what I am at this time. Because of what I have experienced, I am doing no physical work on any job until the two arteries have been repaired.

It is very obvious that God gave me a great deal of physical strength when working here all the way up to the time of the attack, even when three of my arteries had near complete blockage. Actually, two were completely blocked for a time. In all of this I was given good strength to do the work that I did.

It was a small thing for God to do for me then and it is a small thing for Him to give me strength now. He did it before and He is now. He could have stopped what I went through, but that would not have produced the amazing results that are now taking place. Again, I will be able to share all this at a later time – at a time of God’s choosing. This IS God’s work.

Prophecy
That brings up an interesting point at this time. It is about everything that happens in our lives. If we grasp that we are indeed God’s begotten children and that our lives are fully in the hands of the Great Creator God, then everything that God allows to happen to us in our lives and in the Church is for a greater purpose that will follow. He could intervene and stop every hardship, every trial, every physical ailment, and everything that we would consider bad. If he doesn’t stop those things, then do we have the kind of belief and faith that this is, and that we are, His work?

When Laura was in Minnesota recently, I mentioned to a Church group by phone about how I could have died or I could yet die and that would change nothing concerning God’s plan being fulfilled and this being God’s Church. This is God’s work! I understand how some might feel about such an outcome, believing it would not be possible because I am God’s apostle, prophet, and also one of the two witnesses. One might ask, “How could you die and prophecy still be fulfilled?”

Before that is answered, and just so that everyone can rest assured, I want to make it perfectly clear that I don’t believe such a thing will happen. I believe God is going to work with me to finish this work in this end-time, but this brings up truth that we need to know.

It concerns a matter about prophecy, as well as confidence and belief in our being God’s begotten children, with whom He is currently working with in His remnant Church. Let’s use the scenario I have just mentioned concerning that if I were to die nothing changes, and that this is God’s work.

How could prophecy that we believe about the two witnesses be true if such a thing were to happen? That is exactly what I am talking about; this is God’s work. We cannot limit God. Yet that is often what we tend to do.

The truth is that God has “many ways” to fulfill prophecy. Much of it is written in a very unique way for that very purpose.

Prophecy is not simply open and shut. Prophecy and its fulfillment is not a matter of figuring something out on our own through study, number crunching, or speculation. God reveals all of this through His prophets. When it is time – God’s time – He may inspire something prophetic to be stated, or for something to be revealed from prophecy, or to reveal a specific fulfillment that applies to something that has already happened, and which fits a specific prophetic event. In all of this, it is revealed in one primary way. It is through a prophet of God and in no other way.

Prophecy is revealed AS it comes time for God to “reveal” some specific and timely matter – according to His timing – of something that He has written long ago. He has a plan, but He has a vast number of ways in which He can fulfill much of prophecy that was written long, long ago.

You cannot limit God. There is not just one way to fulfill much of prophecy. If I had died and God had some purpose for why He wanted to alter part of the course of things currently being fulfilled, there are many ways He could do so and still fulfill His prophetic writing. God could have some reason for training someone else for a purpose that was not needed before, but because of changes in the world or with people not even called yet, there may have been a need for someone else to fulfill what I otherwise would have.

The point being, some things are not decided by God until it is time to accomplish them in his overall plan. This is due to the fact that some things might change in the world, since God gave mankind free choice, and so God can fulfill things accordingly. As we go forward, there will be more given about this very thing, but for now we are being given an introduction so that we can at least begin to digest this a little in order to receive more at another time.

This is a building block type of process for learning. This also has to do with some new understanding about all that we have gone through over the past seven years. As one digests what is given here, it will be much easier to understand what is given later.

Consider how that prophecy about two witnesses could be fulfilled by two different pairs of people, or by one other substitute if God chose to do so, and it would change nothing concerning the fact that prophecy would still be fulfilled. The first phase of a “witness” beginning in 2008, in the 5th period of 1,260 days, was something that was fulfilled on a spiritual plane.

The witness that will be fulfilled in the 7th period of 1,260 days will be a literal, physical phase of fulfillment for two witnesses. Both prophetically allow for different people to do each and still fulfill what is written. A previous post has covered that there are many ways that prophecy has been fulfilled. That which comes to mind here is a matter of a spiritual type and a physical type. There are different “types” in prophecy and most of those can be fulfilled through different servants of God.

That is why we must always be patient when something isn’t fulfilled in the exact manner we believe that it should be. This is God’s work, and if we are His people, then we should understand that He will reveal to us what we must know. It has always been that way, and we are His people.

This is just to illustrate that much prophecy is not “open and shut” as we so often tend to think and act. Yet some prophecy is fulfilled in a very specific and exact manner.

The way in which some things can be fulfilled may not be known and revealed until a specific moment in time when God then determines to fulfill it. This is another reason why we need to be so careful, especially as we go forward, because we must be at-one more than we have ever been. We must all speak the same thing.

A Caution
As it has been stated in the past to the ministry (and is wise for all to follow) if something is written or spoken and then placed on one of our websites, then we should be cautious and careful not to go beyond that present truth. Otherwise, we can easily find ourselves in opposition to God. God works in a very specific way within His Church. It is a matter of His spirit and that of His Son working in a manner that we have witnessed in a strong way for a long time now. God has revealed much truth and much new truth to His Church. If we believe this is God’s Church and this is God’s work, then we will strive to be at-one with what God has given.

A final example that I am going to mention that helps illuminate this point about prophecy and all speaking the same thing is something that comes up from time to time that people tend to speculate about. There are many such subjects that tend to lend themselves to that (speculation), but one that is timely and now being given is the matter of speculation of who is the “king of the north” and who is the “king of the south.”

Why should anyone let such a small matter turn into something of greater importance than it is? Let’s look at this in the manner that reflects what has just been covered.

Where is it mentioned in any sermons, posts, books, or other written material who those kings are in this end-time? If it is not mentioned, then are we in unity if we speculate about it? Is such a thing edifying, productive, or even true? If not, then why address it? Does it create greater unity to engage in such a thing? Or does it simply stroke vanity and pride? Does it stir up a false sense of “being spiritual?” Such things can truly be very harmful spiritually.

The reason this is mentioned is because this and other things like it do tend to come up from time to time. This should raise a flag of caution, especially in this special year we are observing.

There is great reason why I have never addressed this prophecy. Does it take away from my function as a prophet? No.

It is simply a matter that I cannot, nor will I, give something unless I believe firmly that it has come from God. Several years ago, I mentioned to some that I had wondered why God hadn’t revealed anything about this to me since it is concerns this end-time. God has not led me to see exactly what is being covered here about prophecy. There may be some “types” with this in lesser situations in the world, but the specific fulfillment for what is written in Daniel has never been given, so I can’t give it.

It may be that God is just beginning to give a bit of a glimpse into this, as I recognize patterns in how God works with me and has throughout so much of the past. If this is indeed what is happening, there may still be a passing of time before it is fully revealed. Nevertheless, if it is one of those patterns, which will become clear before long, then its fulfillment will be nothing like any speculation that one might think.

There are some good lessons in all of this that has been covered. Ask God for help to see them all, and then for help to learn what needs to be understood from them.
