CGPFK’s Disbelief and Horror



Today I went to self-appointed prophet & witness Ronald Weinland’s CGPFK’s website.  On its home page it actually says:

Authored by Ronald Weinland, The Prophesied End-Time and 2008 – God’s Final Witness, will challenge readers as they consider catastrophic end-time events that are now prophesied to begin. Although many will not take seriously what is written here, they will gradually experience disbelief and horror at the events covered in these books as they begin to unfold.

While I used to report about him regularly, Ronald Weinland simply is making little impact these days (and never made the impact that one of God’s two witnesses would be expected to sometimes make). For those who do not know him, Ron Weinland is a former UCG minister who declared himself a prophet, then one of the two witnesses (with his wife as the other of the two witnesses), then an apostle.

FWIW, on the subject of UCG, Ron Weinland stated the following in a sermon this year:

I think of ‘United [COG-AIA]’ today. This is an organization that I was a part of for a time, and most of you who were a part with us were a part at one time – now they have another organization that split off, ‘Church of God – a Worldwide  Association’, and people are hurting. People are hurting! Talk about a 50/50 split!

While I do believe that people in or once in UCG are hurting, those in CGPFK should be hurting even more–yet they do not seem to see the truth about their own group.


Ronald Weinland originally declared that the Great Tribulation began on April 17, 2008. And, of course, it did not.  And the allegedly terrible affects of the Great Tribulation on the USA in the year 2008 was much of what his 2008 – God’s Final Witness book was supposed to be about.  He changed his start date on the Great Tribulation to December 14, 2008 and has held to that date since.   The fact that the events of the Great Tribulation have still not began has not caused enough of his followers to experience disbelief yet.

One would think that his followers would “experience disbelief and horror” about following one who has been so wrong for so long.  And many who started to follow Ron Weinland apparently did experience disbelief and horror as many have stopped following him.

Yet, there still are many who do follow him.

They should be horrified that Ronald Weinland has repeatedly proven to be a false prophet and one who does not understand the Bible.

Here is some of what one of his books states about the two witnesses:

Notice: “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth” (Revelation 11:3). The symbolism of “sackcloth” is given because these two will be filled with humility (Weinland, Ronald. 2008 – God’s Final Witness. Copyright © 2006 by, inc., Cincinnati. Published October, 2006, pp.21-22).

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies, and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. They have power to shut heaven so that it does not rain in the days of their prophecy, and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. (Revelation 11:5-6)…

The fire proceeding out of their mouth is symbolic of the power to pronounce exacting judgments upon anyone who would do them harm (2008 – God’s Final Witness, p. 89).

While it is remotely possible that the two witnesses will not wear actual physical sackcloth, Revelation 11:13 is not speaking of just humility, but specifically that the clothing of the two witnesses will not be fancy–probably in contrast to the beast, who is likely to be flashy/wealthy in appearance. And in particular, I also suspect that the two witnesses actually will sometimes wear some literal sackcloth, at least at times.  And that they will wear at least some black while they are publicly warning the world. I also believe that they will actually perform miracles, such as fire from them devouring their enemies–I do not believe that the fire mentioned in the Bible is only symbolic.

Yet, Ronald Weinland has no power and has performed none of the miracles that the Bible says that the two witnesses would do.  His followers apparently have disbelief in the literal word of God.

In a sermon earlier this year, he stated:

Things are changing! In seventeen months from now the whole scene changes as far as what the world has been used to, accustomed to, for the way of humanity for 6,000 years and it’s surreal in some respects.

What he is actually alluding to is that he believes that the Great Tribulation will be over in 17 months and that Jesus will return then–but the Great Tribulation has not even started yet.  It is surreal is that people still believe him.

Notice the following statement and prophecy from Ronald Weinland:

I am to announce, through God’s direct revelation, that I am one of those two witnesses. The other witness will be revealed to the world during the time of the great tribulation—within the final three and one-half years of man’s era (Weinland, Ronald. 2008 – God’s Final Witness. Copyright © 2006 by, inc., Cincinnati. Published October, 2006, p.16).

Well, the above is another false statement and false prophecy.  Not only is Ronald Weinland not one of the two witnesses, he “revealed” that his wife was the other of his witnesses on April 17-19, 2008.  Yet, since he now insists that the Great Tribulation did not begin until December 14, 2008, his prophecy about the timing of the revealing of the other witness was wrong.  Would God allow one of His two witnesses to make that type of mistake?

Notice also some of Ron Weinland’s 2007 and 2008 statements:

A little after April…a dollar bill won’t be worth anything…We’re going to be brought down the tubes, very quickly, starting in April…What happens when a nuclear weapon goes off in New York and Chicago?…If we come to the point in time where what I’ve said doesn’t come to pass, the reality is that I’m just a false prophet. That’s the bottom line

The reality is if it doesn’t happen, then you’re just false…I’ll acknowledge my error, my wrong, if I’m wrong…

The primary things…for the world…actually begin after April 2008…The abomination of desolation has already happened…By January 2009, we (the United States) will be down the tubes…(Ronald Weinland Interview on The Edge Radio on December 15, 2007)

If by Pentecost I’m just going to make this real clear to everyone. If by Pentecost it is not powerfully and abundantly clear that there has been a great deal of destruction that will clearly encompass a third of all plant life in the US and at least the clear results of this mingled with blood the death of very much animal life and the beginning of large numbers of human life then I will stop preaching. Just so all the critics and everyone out there will understand. I am true to my word in these things. OK? And for all the critics if by the end of July and for most likely around Pentecost if nothing has clearly caused great destruction and death I will make it very clear that I was a false prophet. I will do exactly what I said I would do on all of those interviews that I have held; to do less, aah well, would be quite insane. (Weinland R. Three More Weeks–quote from near the 1 hour 28 minute point from the CGPFK website version. Sermon given March 29, 2008).

We are we are not we are at our end as far as our country is concerned. I’ve made many comments on different interviews here that we may be able to scrounge together having elections in November but there will not be a new president take office in January…(Ronald Weinland Interview on The Mike McConnell Show Radio on April 7, 2008)

Most of what he proclaimed would happen, did not happen (Barack Obama did take office in January 2009, the US dollar still has value, and the USA was not nuked in 2008). Yet, instead of keeping his word about stopping to preach, Ronald Weinland changed his dates and began to allegorize away what Bible prophecy teaches.

The Bible is clear that one whose prophecies do not come to pass does not speak for God:

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).

Ronald Weinland has often spoken presumptuously.

As I have been writing for years, Ronald Weinland is a false prophet and is NOT one of God’s two witnesses.

Sadly, despite his track record as a false prophet, Ronald Weinland still has followers. Hopefully ones that will experience the disbelief that CGPFK’s website refers to sooner than later.

I feel sorry for Ronald Weinland and those who follow him. Hopefully now more of them will wake up. Because the main “Great Tribulation” that his followers are experiencing now is continuing to be led by the imaginations of Ronald Weinland.

The biblical Great Tribulation has not yet began and those who believe otherwise have allowed themselves to be deceived.  They should be horrified.
