Ronald Weinland: Jesus to Return in 2012

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.


As regular readers of this page are aware, I have long considered Ronald Weinland a false prophet.

Unlike his followers, I did not need to wait for his prophecies to start to fail to know that he was false. I simply checked what he “prophesied” against the Bible to see that what he claimed would not come to pass.

Yesterday, Ronald Weinland changed his dates and his mind again.

This time, instead of listening to his false prophecies myself (I have heard more than my share of his false and misleading sermons), I thought I would share what the “Don’t Drink the Flavor Aid” site posted about it:

The Insane Lying False Prophet Ron Weinland has made it official. My speculated timeline is his new revised timeline. Jesus Christ is to return on Pentecost of 2012. September 30, the Feast of Trumpets, is to be when his return is announced. But Ronnie violated that by announcing it today. Hanging on to his membership is more important than making the announcement on the required day. Maybe he’ll buy time on national TV to announce it to the world on that day.

He went beyond my speculation, tying in the “son of perdition” to Joe Tkach who dyed (sic) 40 weeks or 280 days after his infamous sermon of December 17, 1994. And from Christmas 2007 to Trumpets 2008 is 280 days.

FWIW, I do not believe that any of the Tkachs were or can be, the son of perdition in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4.

Perhaps I should once again state that, SINCE THE GREAT TRIBULATION CANNOT BEGIN PRIOR TO 2012, JESUS WILL NOT RETURN PRIOR TO 2015–and most likely not for 1-3 years or so later. Certain biblically-required events have not yet happened and prevent this from being sooner.

It matters not how many false prophets, like Ronald Weinland, rise up and say otherwise.

Notice some of Ronald Weinland’s prophecies that did not come to pass:

1) 1335 days of Daniel 12 began 2/2/08
2) 1290 days of Daniel 12 began 3/18/08
3) 1260 Daniel 12 began 4/17/08
4) Various Church of God leaders would die by now
5) “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 AprilIf 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”.
6) “Over the weeks and few months that follow, God will begin drawing millions to His truth and to repentance.” (see March post titled Ronald Weinland Prophesied Millions & Is Spending to Accomplish That)
7) If a nuclear attack/massive destruction of 1/3rd of plant life did not occur in the USA by 6/8/08, he would admit he is a false prophet and stop preaching.

Ronald Weinland instead of keeping his word, for a while taught that the first three events did occur and that the problem was that his critics simply could not see this as the fulfillments were not physical (like the Bible teaches), but spiritual (like he told everyone). Then once less and less accepted that, Ronald Weinland declared on June 21 (see Ronald Weinland: Nothing will happen between now and July 16) that although he was wrong, he would keep on preaching any way.

Does he not even realize that one of the ten commandments says to not bear false witness? Jesus also taught against it (Matthew 19:18)–for more details, please see What Did Jesus Teach About the Ten Commandments?

Jesus also warned against false prophets (Matthew 24:11). Here is part of how the Bible teaches about self-appointed false prophets:

…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 18:22).

What Ronald Weinland has been predicting for years simply has not come to pass. Ronald Weinland is a false prophet and needs to repent and not continue to be a false leader.

No one should follow him nor believe his revised dates.
