Ron Weinland, Two Years After June 8, 2008 Still Has Not Kept His Promise



Two years ago, according to Ronald Weinland, he was to quit preaching if the USA had not been nuked.

Notice what he said:

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).

And by the time you get to the second trumpet it’s even gonna be more devastating and at that point in time there it uh definitely seem to indicate there’s gonna be nuclear weapons go off but I I really some of these things as far as the four seals exactly what they are uh specifically when the nuclear weapons go off and the like uh that’s what my job actually begins April the 17th that’s when I begin my job. (Weinland R.  Interview on the The Mike McConnell Show Radio on April 7, 2008)

But Ronald Weinland failed to stop preaching (Pentecost that year was June 8th), even though he was (and remains) a false prophet.

Instead, he later claimed that much of the Great Tribulation was spiritual, that it really did not start on April 17, 2008 as he once taught, but instead it started on December  14, 2008.

Well, Ronald Weinland’s proclaimed second date for the Great Tribulation has been going on for nearly a year and a half.  Yet, none of the events that THE BIBLE said needed to happen during it have happened yet.

Sadly, this has not dissuaded Ronald Weinland from preaching his nonsense, stopped everyone from still following him, or gotten him to keep the promise he made over two years ago.

Thus far, his integrity on such matters is zero.  Ronald Weinland always was, and remains, a false prophet.  And I think two years after the date he was supposed to stop preaching he keeps doing so, it is fair to call him a documented liar as well.

Jesus clearly warned that false prophets would rise up, yet seem like real ministers:

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?  17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.  19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.  (Matthew 7:15-20)

Ron Weinland’s fruits are that he misled many, ruined the lives of many, and is a documented liar.

The Apostle Peter warned that even among the true church, false ones would rise up and cause the way of truth to be blasphemed:

1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. (2 Peter 2:1-3)

When we do get closer to the end, many will be turned-off of listening to real biblical prophecy because they have been misled by false prophets such as Ron Weinland (Harold Camping is likely to cause a greater stir, but on Pentecost of 2011 himself be shown to be a false prophet once again).  It is sad, but true.

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?
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. 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.
