Not Enough Resolve

False Prophet Ronald Weinland skipped his normal post-feast vacation this year, returning from Australia directly to Cincinnati to give yesterday's sermon. He reiterated his plans to travel to Europe for the third time this year, although he hasn't booked his trip yet. Tentative plans are to the UK in late November and mainland Europe in early December.

The title of yesterday's sermon was "Resolve with Zeal" with the promise that this would be the first in a long series. The false prophet reminded his sheep that many would not be still attending if he had not "been permitted" to reveal the fiftieth "truth" back in June. Apparently they're still not bled dry financially since he accused them of lacking resolve.

The "truth" goes from God to Christ to Ron. This happens even during conversations, with God "giving Ron the knowing". But no scripture to back this up -- you'd think something could be made to text-proof this claim.

To build up their resolve he put out a stick followed by a carrot. The Spokesman Witness said that for sure only two are sealed (the Witlesses) and beyond that might be only a few. For the carrot, he said that those who followed him would live through the Great Tribulation into the millennium.

Weinland claimed that the greatest battles are yet to come. Spiritual battles, with the "beings" stirred up even more since the feast. Perhaps he had some correspondence from the IRS awaiting his return.

Ron Recycles

For the last Feast sermon given this afternoon on the Last Great Day, False Prophet Ronald Weinland showed his lack of preparation by reminiscing about the past and recycling sermons of years'-past Last Great Day sermons. Most of the time dealt with last year's "Total Resolve" sermon. His delivery was plagued by technical problems, with several disconnects of the WiFi used to connect with the members in New Zealand. The recorded file also has a number of momentary dropouts.

He mentioned that more than 500,000 copies of his books have been published. Ron claims to have spent almost $280,000 in one month at the height of his Google ad campaign last spring. And also claims a membership of 3-4 times what it was at the last Feast of Tabernacles, which if true would be in the ballpark of 1000-1500 members.

Weinland indicated that he would be restarting his Google ad campaign soon. As last year, he mandated that members send in 3/4 of their second tithe for the Google ad campaign instead of keeping it to attend the holy days. Another repeated declaration was that there will be no organized feast next year. I hope he's right. Except my reason would be that he has no members for which to organize a feast, or perhaps he's a resident of Club Fed.

Weinland confirmed the rumored Swiss bank accounts, stating that the money was put there beginning several years ago for the "two witnesses" (Ron and Laura). His expectation is they will be in Europe before long, possibly also spending time in Australia and New Zealand. Germany was also mentioned as a possibility.

With the added membership there are more pitchers to be broken and more money for the Swiss bank accounts. Time to run down the hill again.

Weinland Heads to the Gold Coast

False Prophet Ronald Weinland finished the first part of the Feast of Tabernacles in New Zealand and then headed today for Brisbane, Australia to finish up on the Gold Coast.

The emphasis has shifted back to prophecy. He indicates that he's going to start up his Internet ad campaign again, because it's better to spend the money now before it becomes worthless.

An interesting statement in his sermon: "If God had not given us the message for the 1335 days and the New Truth of understanding about the Feast of Trumpets of this year, if he had not allowed us to have that sermon, that was contained in the Feast of Trumpets, way in advance as he did, there would have been a lot of you, not a few, that would not have survived it. You could not have made it spiritually this far You would not be here today. I hope you understand that."

This statement confirms my earlier post in June that I believed that his followers weren't willing to wait for the "new truth". The sermon of June 28th announcing the new timeline earlier than he planned was primarily motivated by this and not by my scooping him by announcing the new timeline a week earlier. And God had nothing to do with it, either. It was just some tap dancing by the Insane Liar.

According to the countdown clock on my blog, it's now 29 days until the reopening of the 7th seal. Only 29 days for the other 6 Thunders to sound, and for a repealing of Duet. 18:22 to rehabilitate Ron as a Prophet of God.

Six More Thunders and a Do-Over

Today's sermon is yet another one that False Prophet Ronald Weinland has recorded in a hotel room by himself. This makes the third sermon in a row with no audience, as he did the same for the Day of Atonement because the recording of his live sermon failed. According to Ron, he is in Auckland, New Zealand. He must still be behind in preparing his sermons for the Feast of Tabernacles to give up this opportunity to meet the brethren.

As one might expect, he talked up the one of his seven thunders that is sounding loudly, which as all who don't live in cave knows to be the global economic problems.

On page 115 of his book "2008 God's Final Witness, the Insane Liar wrote: "During the Sixth Seal, all Seven Thunders will be getting progressively louder. Before the Seventh (and final) Seal is opened, the Seven Thunders will become so pronounced that the validity of everything written about them in the previous chapter should roar loudly in the ears of anyone who is willing to admit the truth.

According to the false prophet's second timeline, the Seventh Seal is to open (for the second time) on November 14. That means that in the next 34 days six more thunders would need to be sounding loudly for the false prophet to be a true prophet -- and also Duet. 18:22 would have to be rewritten to allow do-overs.

Deut. 18:22 says "If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him." Can anyone point out where it says in that verse that if something doesn't happen when you first say it will, then just change the timeline until you get lucky?

Weinland Down Under

False Prophet Ronald Weinland's sermon for yesterday was prerecorded since in Sydney, Australia he's in one of the earliest timezones.

He spent some time in yesterday's sermon discussing whether children should fast on the Day of Atonement, which begins at sundown on Oct 8. He also mentioned the failing health of the wife of one his elders.

One might think that Ron would use this opportunity to meet with the Australian brethren. Instead, this is one of the sermons he recorded by himself in a hotel room, giving both the opening and closing prayers himself. He explained that he needed to spend some time alone preparing sermons for the Feast of Tabernacles.

Ron, if you're having trouble thinking of something to say, I have a solution to your problem. All you have to do is what you said you'd do back on March 29 when you promised to stop preaching if the effects of the First Trumpet was not apparent by Pentecost. Just be true to your word -- for a change.

One Pair Down, Two To Go

It appears now that there will be only two pairs of Witnesses facing off come December 15. James Malm already has a post up on his site admitting he is wrong. No man of sin was revealed yesterday. While he apologizes at the end, he does indulge in a bit of future date speculating in the middle.

At least he showed some humility, unlike Ronald Weinland. And unlike the Insane Liar, he did not spiritualize it or blame it on the rest of us for not being ready. Unlike Ron, has shown some integrity.

Yet somehow I think that we will hear more from Malm in the future.
