ICG, Glenn Beck, and Ronald Weinland

Which Book Do You Think Christians Should Rely On?

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.


Last evening, I watched the Glenn Beck program as it was announced that it would cover news and related end-time prophecies. So too, did ICG’s Mark Armstrong, who reported the following about it:

Who would have expected that we would see the prophecies of Ezekiel 38 discussed on CNN Headline News. That is precisely what is about to happen this evening, and from all I can tell, it will be presented in quite an accurate context, asking are we living “in the end of days?”

I watch the program that aired on CNN Headline News tonight, the Glenn Beck program. Mr. Rosenberg is very interesting man and is on target on many of his viewpoints, but seems to have a few inaccuracies in his understanding and expectations to do with Bible prophecy.

And although Joel Rosenberg seems reasonable enough and does understand that we are in the end times, he too, like most out there, simply does not understand the specifics of Bible prophecy (he, for example, believes in an evangelical version of the rapture theory and misunderstands Ezekiel 38).

Glenn Beck himself seems to be a Mormon (some doctrinal information on the Mormons is in the article Five Dissimilarities Between The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the Living Church of God) with interest in end-time prophecy (Glenn Beck has had previous segments on prophetic matters, but this is only the second time I am aware of that his entire program was devoted to this).

But what I wish to focus on in this post is that fact that neither the Glenn Beck program nor any major news outlet has been covering Ronald Weinland. It has been 10 days since he and his wife supposedly were given the power to begin their claimed 1260 day ministry as the two witnesses.

Recall that the Bible states:

3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” 4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth. 5 And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. 6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire (Revelation 11:3-6).

Thus far, there was been no power, no miraculous signs (although Ronald Weinland did essentially call for a limited plague against those he called mockers, please see Ronald Weinland Again Calls for Death).

And perhaps just as interesting, there has been no effective witnessing to the world (which he claimed would occur by now (please see the article on the Church of God, Preparing for the Kingdom).

In Ronald Weinland’s sermon, which I presume he will give later today, I suspect that he will mention economic problems, grain shortages (which have been covered here, please see Rice and the Beginning of Sorrows), and why those he calls “mockers” are wrong.

Perhaps he will modify his sermon today, but the main emphasis that Ronald Weinland seems to have had in the past two sermons of his that I heard (3/29/08 and 4/19/08) is that God will strike down those that oppose him and that people need to rely on Ronald Weinland’s current explanation of his book.

That is the wrong emphasis.

Ronald Weinland immediately should do the following:

  1. Apologize to leaders of various Churches of God to whom he sent letters warning them of their impending deaths about two years ago.
  2. Apologize to his followers for misleading them.
  3. Go back on the few radio programs he was on and apologize for his presumptuousness for appointing himself as a prophet and one of God’s two witnesses.
  4. Apologize to me (and now others) for the disdain whereby he treated me two years ago, and how he has treated those that pointed out why he was wrong ever since.
  5. Give me the www.the-end.com URL 🙂 since he misused it, while the cogwriter website has been properly explaining end-time events during the time he has been around.
  6. Shut down the Church of God, Preparing for the Kingdom organization so that it cannot continue. There are rumors that some wish to keep it going even AFTER Ronald Weinland’s latest dates prove to be false.
  7. Spend a lot of time communicating with people he has misled to attempt to help them understand that he was wrong and that they should have relied much more on the Bible and not on his false interpretations of biblical prophecy.

Anyway, there are probably a few more things that he should do now, but that list is at least a start.

It’s been ten days since Ronald Weinland claimed that God began his and his wife’s 1260 day job as the two witnesses–but they have not been effective witnesses as they STILL are being basically ignored by the world. Nor are they close to converting millions like he indicated that they should be (for more details, see Ronald Weinland Prophesied Millions & Is Spending to Accomplish That) by now.

The Weinlands are NOT God’s two end-time witnesses.

There is a Place of Safety for the Philadelphians. Why it May Be Petra This article discusses a biblical ‘place of safety’ and includes quotes from the Bible and Herbert W. Armstrong on this subject–thus, there is a biblically supported alternative to the rapture theory.
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 and the Hindu Indians (who were not even on the same continent). Do these Mayan/Hindu/Hopi prophecies have any value? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
