Ronald Weinland’s Advice is Wrong



Yesterday, Ronald Weinland preached in Detroit and tried to tell people to continue to listen to him.

Last night I decided to go to his website and noticed his CGPFK‘s site states the following:

You must also quickly seek to know what you must be doing spiritually in order to best equip yourself for what will be happening in this world throughout the final three and one-half years of great physical tribulation that is now upon us.

The best way for you to equip yourself is to read and reread both books that Ronald Weinland has written. In doing so you will reinforce the truth of your conviction and build upon what you missed in any earlier reading…

Since we have now moved into the final three and one-half years of tribulation, the opportunity for people to come together as a congregation will become less and less…

The time of great physical tribulation is upon us, and soon most people will not have the freedom to pursue that relationship with God by listening to sermons from Sabbath to Sabbath.

Notice that Ronald Weinland’s advice is for people to listen to his sermons and read his books.  Instead, it should be to compare what he says to that which is written in the Bible.

Ronald Weinland has simply written and made many statements that are false.  I did listen to his sermons, radio interviews, books, and other writings.  His followers should pay attention to such gems from him like:

The proof is coming…If it doesn’t come to pass…starting in April, then I’m nothing but a false prophet…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…(Weinland, Ronald. The Edge Radio Interview, December 17, 2007).

“I wanna speak very plainly and try to speak openly about some of these thingsYou know, one of the things as well, what if Ron Weinland, what he says doesn’t come to pass in April, what if these things don’t happen in 2008. I think about, you know, what have I said in interviews? There’s really a simple answer. False prophet. (Weinland, Ronald.  Stay the Course, Part I, Sermon, December 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).

If things do not by mid-June very clearly so, I will make it clear that I was a false prophet and I will never preach again…(Weinland R. talkSPORT radion interview, April 2008).

Yet, Ronald Weinland failed to take his own public advice.

While his current followers seem to ignore all of that, notice that one clear event the that Bible shows was supposed to have started at the beginning of the three and one-half years:

25 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)

It has been about seven months since Ronald Weinland claimed the great tribulation and the final three and one-half years began (he claimed December 14, 2008, after at first claiming April 17 2008).

Daniel 7:25 has not been fulfilled.  It would have been clear to all by now if it had started.  The reality is that final 3 1/2 years has not began.  Despite Ronald Weinland’s claims, the Great Tribulation has not began.

Perhaps his followers will realize that they too are assisting him in spreading his biblically-inaccurate message and reconsider their situations.

Some articles that will help you, your followers, and others interested in end-time prophecy would include the following:

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 is he 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 2009, 2010, or 2011? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? 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?
