1290 Days Do Not Start Friday

Ronald Weinland Says His Books and His Interpretations of the Bible Are What He Wants Potential Supporters to Study. The COGwriter Site Instead Urges Those Interested in Him and End-Time Prophecies to Spend More Time Checking His Writings with the Bible.


Contrary to Ronald Weinland’s assertions, the 1290 days of Daniel 12 will not start this week.  Yet, in his August 21st letter (his last posted letter), Ronald Weinland claimed:

Much of God’s purpose at this end-time consists of revealing (as a true witness) the real attitude and spirit of mankind in this modern 21st Century. With all the technological development of mankind over the past century, God is showing that mankind is the same as he has always been over the past 6,000 years…

Since things did not happen in the original time frame that was given because God had not given this 50th Truth, those who were responding solely out of fear and desire for self-preservation are no longer seeking God’s help. Those who are skeptics, critics and mockers have only grown bolder in their deceived and misguided confidence…

The minds of peoples and leaders in ten European nations are now being molded so that one day soon they will agree to unite as the United States of Europe and it will be at that time that they determine to set their own course and control of the future—through immediate aggression in war. It will be this European union that plunges the whole world into war, and not Russia or the United States.

This is not a time to draw back, become slack, or let down from being spiritually on guard. Everything is rapidly moving forward, and on Trumpets of this year we will have entered the final 1335 days before the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of the government of God over all the earth.

Ronald Weinland is not God’s “true witness”.  And understanding that he has been wrong before is a biblically desirable practice–and pointing it out does not make me a mocker.  Notice what the Bibles recorded about prophets like Ronald Weinland:

21 “And if you say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’– 22 when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him (Deuteronomy 18:21-22).

The Feast of Trumpets was on September 30 in 2008.  So, if according to Ronald Weinland, the 1335 days began on September 30th, what actually happened to prove the start of the related prophecies in Daniel and elsewhere?

Ronald Weinland has not cited actual proof as far as I am concerned.  His comments about economic issues, like 9/11/08 sound similar to the ones he claimed in the Spring after he had earlier stated that “A little after April…a dollar bill won’t be worth anything”.

Based upon his claims of the 1335 days supposedly beginning on September 30, 2008 (the second time this year he said it began–the first was February 2, 2008, see Ronald Weinland Announced When He Claims Jesus Will Return), then the 1290 days of Daniel 12 would start this Friday, November 14th.

Herbert W. Armstrong taught that there would be future fulfillments of many verses of Daniel 11 beginning with vs. 31 and apparently a little earlier. And under his direction, the old WCG taught that the King of the North would unite the people of Europe:

The indication is the armies of the “beast” of Revelation 17, entering Jerusalem (…Zech. 14:2), will stop this “daily sacrifice”…And the abomination that maketh desolate set up.” What is this abomination? This refers to Daniel 11:31 and Matthew 24:15…From this time (Daniel 12:11) to Christ’s coming will be 1290 days (Armstrong HW. The Time We Are In, Now. Pastor General’s Report-Vol 1, No. 15, November 20, 1979, Page 2).

The Hitler-Mussolini kingdom was the sixth head of the beast. The next leader to unite the peoples of Europe will constitute the “beast” mentioned in Daniel and Revelation. He will also be the “king of the north” mentioned in Daniel 11…The king of the north is going to move to Mount Zion, and he will be joined there by a false prophet who will work great miracles (McNair, Raymond. Watch the Middle East. The Good News, August, 1974, pp. 10-15).

And the abomination that maketh desolate set up.” What is this abomination? This refers to Daniel 11:31 and Matthew 24:15…From this time (Daniel 12:11) to Christ’s coming will be 1290 days. Now, verse 12, “Blessed is he that waiteth, and comes to the 1335 days.” Never before have we understood these periods of 1260, 1290. and 1335 days. But it seems evident, now, a blessing is pronounced on us–GOD”S CHURCH–who wait and endure until the 1335 days–approximately 1335 days prior to Christ’s coming. But since no one can know the day or hour of His coming, we probably shall not be able to know the exact day this 1335 days begins. But apparently that is the time when OUR WORK SHALL END. That will be a time when the UNITED Europe shall appear–the revival of the medieval “Holy Roman Empire.” (Armstrong HW. Personal. Good News magazine January 1980).

As the above shows, Herbert W. Armstrong clearly wrote that there would be a future fulfillment of Daniel 11:31 and other verses in Daniel. And as the above shows, he taught that something would stop the work forty-five days prior to Daniel 11:31–and that is when the revival of the “Holy Roman Empire”–which scripture shows will be led by the King of the North–will occur and the 1335 days will begin. Hence his writings support the idea looking at the few verses prior to Daniel 11:31 to see what might stop the work is consistent with the intent of what he wrote. In addition, Matthew 24:14, which comes just before Matthew 24:15, states that the gospel will be preached and then the end will come, thus this is another reason why confirmation for the work ending should be found prior to Daniel 11:31–and this is not something that Ronald Weinland has ever been able to do.

For the 1335 and 1290 days to start, the Europeans would have to be completely united by then, should have began the persecution of the Philadelphian Christians, and would need to be ready to nuke the Anglo-American powers around the start of the 1260 days, which Ronald Weinland indicates will be about December 7, 2008 (Ronald Weinland earlier declared that the USA would have to be nuked by mid-June, then Mid-July 2008, but of course that did not come to pass–see the news item Ronald Weinland, False Prophet), and then be prepared to persecute the rest of the true Christians.  And then be prepared to attack the King of the South, who does not yet even exist.

Biblically required events for the 1290 days, etc. to begin have not yet occurred.  Ronald Weinland has been taking improper advantage of the turmoil in the news to keep people following his inaccurate predictions.  Please do not let self-appointed false prophets like Ronald Weinland deceive you.

Those who really want to know what the Bible teaches will happen related to the the 1335 days, the 1290 days, and the 1260 days of Daniel, when the 6000 years should end, etc. should read the following articles:

Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
Is There A Future King of the South? Some no longer believe there needs to be. Might Egypt, Islam, Iran, Arabs, or Ethiopia be involved? What does the Bible say?
Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End? Was a 6000 year time allowed for humans to rule followed by a literal thousand year reign of Christ on Earth taught by the early Christians? When does the six thousand years of human rule end?
End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? There is a Mayan calendar prediction for change in 2012. 2012 changes were also centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans (the Hindus may have some predictions for the next decade as well). Do these Mayan/Hindu/Hopi prophecies have any value? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2009, 2010, or 2011? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? When is the earliest that the Great Tribulation can begin? What is the Day of the Lord?
Who Are The Two Witnesses? What is their job? What does the Bible reveal? What has the Church of God taught on this subject? Might even Roman Catholic prophecies give some clues here?
Why Prophecy? Because the World Will Not End Next Week Some question or downplay the role of prophecy. This article gives some of the biblical reasons what it is important and explains why the world cannot end for at least 3 1/2 years from now.
