CGPFK Awesome?



Last week I got an email that stated the following (shown in its entirety):

Hello,Just thought I’d let you know that it really amazes me that Mr. Tkach died exactly 1260 days before Pentecost 1998 from December 17th 1994, the day Mr. Tkach betrayed God and Mr Armstrong.  Pentecost 1998 was the beginning of the 7th and the last of Gods church era, the Laodicean Era which ended on September 29th 2008 at sun down at which on the same day the Dow fell of a record 777 points at sun down. The next day is the Jewish Holiday, Feast of Trumpets 2008 which is exactly 1335 days before Pentecost 2012. Between this these two times Seal Number 7 of Revelation will soon be opened and the 7 trupmets will sound along with the 7 last plagues of Revelation before the 1335 days are up. Awsome!!!!

I responded with:

Dear ?

The Laodicean era likely began prior to the date you have selected.  Church eras absolutely did not end on September 29, 2008.

The scriptures are clear that the Philadelphians are protected, and others not, during the Great Tribulation.  And obviously that has not happened yet.
Are you with CGPFK?

I waited until today for a response from the emailer, but none was ever received.  So, I thought I would post it.

The seventh seal will not be opened up in 2012, nor will the seven last plagues begin by then.

The email reminds me of the type of logic that Harold Camping’s supporters also point to.

When we these delusional people wake up?

If the 1335 days began of the Feast of Trumpets in 2008, then the 1260 days began on December 14, 2008.  We should have seen at least something related to the following occurrences take place then according to the Bible:

25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time (Daniel 7:25).

7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished (Daniel 12:7).

But none of the biblically required signs occurred (see also Matthew 24:3-20, which precede the Great Tribulation, which CGPFK followers say began in late 2008; and Harold Camping followers even earlier than that).

Instead these followers seem to wish to believe that a repeatedly false prophet is correct because a few dates supposedly line up with some other dates.  Those are not the signs that the Bible says to look for, yet the followers of the false prophets seem to comfort themselves with statements and beliefs that are not from the Bible, but the imaginations of their leaders.

Ronald Weinland is not God’s prophet or one of His two witnesses. Eventually, more of his followers will wake up and see this. Hopefully, they will not wait until after the Feast of Trumpets or the Feast of Tabernacles in 2010 to do this.  But some will apparently wait for him to reveal “additional truths” which likely are intended to keep the followers paying attention to him instead of the Bible.

This is not awesome, but sad.

(BTW, two readers correctly pointed out that the statement about Tkach and the dates was inaccurate.  One of them stated, “Mr. Tkach Sr. died on Sept 23, 1995…981 days before Pentecost 1998.“)

It is sad that the Weinland followers and others of similar ilk do not rely on the Bible for their doctrine.

Some articles of related interest may include the following:

Concerns About Ronald Weinland’s Church of God-Preparing for the Kingdom of God Ronald Weinland falsely claims to be one of the two witnesses God is raising up and that the end will come in 2008 (first April 17th, then June 2008, now December 14, 2008). Why does the Bible show that Ron Weinland is a false prophet? He also has at least one other view that suggests that he is not part of the Church of God.
Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2010, 2011, or 2012? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before in the “beginning of sorrows”? What happens in the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord? 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?
SDA/LCG Differences: Two Horned Beast of Revelation and 666 The Living Church of God is NOT part of the Seventh-day Adventists. This article explains two prophetic differences, the trinity, differences in approaching doctrine, including Ellen White. Did Ellen White make clear prophetic errors?
Harold Camping’s Teachings About the End of the World Do Not Agree with the Bible Harold Camping teaches that the rapture will be on May 21, 2011 and the world will end on October 21, 2011. Like Ronald Weinland, he allegorizes too many scriptures. What does the Bible show?
2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect This is a link related to a book by Bob Thiel (COGwriter). This also has YouTube videos related to 2012. The book is for those truly interested in understanding how prophecies inter-relate and who want to see a real sequence of end time events. Unlike the false statements in Ronald Weinland’s books, events aligning with this one are actually coming to pass.
