Ronald Weinland, the Unwitness



For most of this year, the self-appointed prophet and self-declared one of the two witnesses, Ronald Weinland of Church of God Preparing for the Kingdom (CGPFK) has been mainly avoiding prophesying.

He has had no significant public appearances, and mainly travels and speaks at small congregations of his church. But notice some of what the Bible teaches about about the two witnesses:

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)

Ronald Weinland prophesied a lot prior to December 2008–but not with God’s power.  And as regular readers of this page are aware, he made many false prophesies about 2008.  Now according to his revised date, the final 1260 days began on December 14, 2008.

But he rarely prophesies any more.  And the one he claims is the other of the two witnesses (his wife Laura) seems to do even less (at least publicly).

So, the CGPFK “witnesses” are apparently not prophesying for 1260 days.  Also, they do not wear sackcloth (Ron Weinland spiritualized that away).  Also, no fire has struck their enemies.  They have not stopped it raining in any particular place.  They have turned the waters into blood.  And they have not struck the earth with plagues.

Ronald Weinland is an unwitness.  He and his wife have failed to accomplish what God established in the Bible as the criteria for the two witnesses.

Now in his July 17, 2010 sermon Ron Weinland stated:

“Sanctify them through Your truth: Your word is truth.” ‘Your word’, God’s word…

So, publicly he admits that God’s word is truth, but he has not accomplished what that same word, the Bible, says about the two witnesses.

In that same sermon, Ron Weinland also stated:

There are thing’s He’s done to give you encouragement, where we see a pattern of things that happened with Mr. Armstrong and things that are happening with me, of things God did and truths He gave and truths that are given here and God gives us encouragement through that process.

Ronald Weinland has not been giving his followers all the truth.  He can quote scripture, but so can the devil (Matthew 4).

The truth is that Ronald Weinland has proven to be a false prophet.  He is still claiming that the Great Tribulation began on December 14, 2008 (after insisting for over a year that it would be April 17, 2008–and then insisting for weeks after that date, that it did start, but one had to be spiritual to see it).  But the Great Tribulation has not began–the signs that Jesus, Daniel, etc. stated would be part of the 1260 days, etc. has not happened.  For one small example, notice one thing that should have began on December 14, 2008 if the final three and one half years (1260 days, called the time, times, and half a time below) should have happened:

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)

The “He” above is the final Beast, also called in Daniel the King of the North.  Neither the saints, nor the followers of Ronald Weinland, have been given into the hands of the final Beast power since December 14, 2008.

Ronald Weinland has proven that he is not God’s true witness.  Hopefully, his followers will wake up and realize this. The facts of world events and the Bible show that he is a false prophet and not God’s witness.  Ronald Weinland is an unwitness.

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. 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.
