TPM’s William Dankenbring died


A reader informed me that Triumph Prophetic Ministries William Dankenbring died yesterday. He died on August 29, 2017, around 1:00 pm. The cause seems to have been of congestive heart failure and renal failure. UPDATE: The reader later told me that the actual date of WD’s death was August 28, 2017–sorry for any confusion.

William Dankenbring was a prolific, though often inaccurate, writer. He used to write for the old Radio and Worldwide Church of God until he left and went out on his own.

Although I heard about him originally in the 1970s, my first encounter with William Dankenbring was about 25 year ago. I wrote to him then objecting to some of his writings and asked to be taken off of his mailing list–a mailing list I had never asked to be on. Well, he was not pleased and wrote a tirade against that, which he published. All my encounters with him over the years were negative.

William Dankenbring made many false predictions over the years that I have denounced. He was always in error on those I denounced and time proved that.

For one example, here is something that I denounced on this page on April 22, 2009:

In his latest ad in The Journal, TPM’s William Dankenbring wrote the following:

Obama’s Legacy
As our nations tumble off the economic cliff and fall to destruction, prophesied in the Word of God, Barack Hussein Obama has become the President of America. Could he become the long anticipated “Antichrist”?

The Antichrist will be a governing “beast” or ravenous dictator spoken of in Revelation, chapter 13. As we study that chapter, we find that even though the Antichrist is a beast he has the number of a man, and his number is 666. Thus, numbers are important indicators of the Antichrist and of antichrist activity.

It is interesting that Obama claims Hawaii as his birthplace, although he has never proved that. Using his claim, however, we find some very interesting numbers. We know that Satan told Almighty God in Job 1:7 that he had come from walking to and fro in the earth, and walking up and down in it. To and fro would indicate latitude, and up and down would indicate longitude.

The latitude of the claimed birthplace of Obama in Hawaii is 21.6. Those three digits that make up 21.6 are significant because the number 216 is the number 6 cubed, or 6 × 6 × 6 = 216. Obama was born on August 4, 1961, which is the 216th day of the year, another 666. We also know that Obama’s office in Chicago, Illinois, had an interesting zip code: 60606.

In the ancient Babylonian numbering system of letters having numerical equivalents increasing by six for each letter, we find that the words “A messiah Barack” equal 666. We also know from Revelation, chapters 7 and 14, that the number 144,000 represents the people of Almighty God. It is the Antichrist that tries to divide them. If we divide the number 144,000 by 666, we find an amazing quotient of 216.216216. If we divide 144,000 by 216, we get the number 666.666666.

Obama is also connected with Kenya, which is no doubt his real place of birth. The word Kenya is actually a feminine word pronounced “Keenya,” and it refers in feminine usage to the “cradle of mankind” in the native Kikuyu language. The literal meaning of the word Kenya is “the abode of the gods.” Even Obama’s political roots in Illinois are significant because the word Illinois is an Algonquin word which means ‘Tribe of superior men,’ or, in other words, the master race.

Now, most of the above is utter foolishness in my opinion. W. Dankenbring has a history of playing around with numbers and proposing positions based upon his imaginations of what he feels the numbers mean.  He has been repeatedly shown to be in error from many forecasts that he made this way (please see Teachings of Triumph Prophetic Ministries).

And while W. Dankenbring has previously suggested that Barack Obama may become “the King of the World” (see TPM: Obama – King of the World?), the fact is (as I have long wrote, please see Barack Obama is Not the Antichrist and Eight More Reasons Why Barak Obama is NOT the Antichrist), Barack Obama is not and cannot be the final Antichrist.

However, without national repentance, the U.S.A. is doomed for destruction.  And because of the timing of his election, President Obama will apparently (and mainly inadvertently) continue the trend towards that destruction.  And while I do applaud President Obama’s announcements yesterday about trying to eliminate torture by the U.S.A. government, I do not applaud his abortion positions and do not believe that he will lead the U.S.A. to national repentance.

Here is a link to another example: TPM’s William Dankenbring’s 2012 Speculation is Wrong.

Here is a link to another example: TPM’s W. Dankenbring Wrong About the Sacrifice Fulfilling Prophecy, a Needed Temple, and the Date of Passover.

But perhaps the most egregious negative experience I had with him was when I informed him that a written source he claimed proved a 15th, and not 14th of Nisan, Passover did not say what he claimed it did. He refused to even look at the actual proof when I offered it (see also TPM: Passover on the 14th or 15th?).

He, like many, had an opinion, and did not want to believe facts that did not support that opinion.

More on his inaccurate teachings can be found in the article: Teachings of Triumph Prophetic Ministries.

I will pray for his family.
