Refail Ron, Weinland's Sixth Thunder

To any Australian readers: Please tune in to the Compass program Sunday at 2220 and leave your impressions of the program and its treatment of False Prophet Ronald Weinland in a comment on this blog. Also, please check out some of the other posts on the Don't Drink the Flavor Aid blog which has been tracking the end-time antics of Weinland since March.

On page 109 of "2008 God's Final Witness", False Prophet Ronald Weinland wrote:
"The Sixth Thunder is the growing revelation of God’s end-time witnesses. That revelation is that I am the spokesman of God’s two end-time prophets—the spokesman of His two end-time witnesses."

A simple Google search on "Ronald Weinland" strongly indicates that the opposite has occurred, with search results of many hits critical of Weinland and his prophetic claims. Even Citizen X of The Weinland Witness, the lone blogger defending the false prophet, has taken a wait-and-see attitude and has posted nothing since early October.

Weinland continued on his book:
"This thunder will grow louder as the events described in the previous thunders continue to unfold with ever increasing intensity, proving the validity of what has been written and that what I am saying is true. Radio and television interviews will become more the norm as curiosity, news, controversy, and fear increase in proportion to the growing intensity of these thunders."

Most of Weinland's radio interviews were arranged by publicists whom he had hired, and were not the result of curious interviewers seeking him out. Weinland has not had a radio interview since his interview with WLW's Mike McConnell on May 2 when he promised to stop preaching if we're still having a picnic on Labor Day. And in July Daniel Ott of The Edge denounced Weinland for failing to come on the program again to acknowledge the failures of his prophecies as he had promised during his interview in December. So much for radio interviews being the norm.

But wait -- Ron Weinland is going to be on ABC TV. But the "A" stands for "Australian", not "American". And the interview was not recorded recently, but rather back in January while on Weinland's first trip of the year down-under. If the thunders had been sounding, seems to me they'd have pulled the interview off the shelf and aired it long before now. And get a load of the promo:
"Are we facing the end of the world? American Pentecostal Pastor Ron Weinland believes he has been sent by God to announce the end of the world in 3 years time! In a provocative episode of Compass we meet this self-proclaimed prophet. He believes the end times are imminent, and he’s not alone. Climate change, acts of terrorism and natural disasters have fuelled the current epidemic of apocalyptic thinking. In this Compass program leading Australian commentators; sociologist Richard Eckersley, Biblical scholar Dr John Dickson, literary academic Greg Clarke and psychologist Susan Tanner, tackle the ultimate question."

Weinland was not too happy about being described as Pentecostal. And it reads like they have four people lined up to tear him apart. So much for television interviews being the norm.

Weinland's Sixth Thunder has ReFailed. In fact, it has failed more miserably than it failed the first time, for the first opening of the Seventh Seal on March 18. No surprise given what he wrote in his book about the Sixth Thunder "This thunder will grow louder as the events described in the previous thunders continue to unfold with ever increasing intensity, proving the validity of what has been written and that what I am saying is true." Only one of the previous thunders has sounded and a 20% accuracy rate is not going to convince rational people of his prophetic abilities. Unfortunately Weinland's followers have set aside rationality.

I never doubted that Weinland didn't know manure from Shinola. Still, I watched with interest, hoping that his activities would finally kill off a toxic cultic movement. They haven't, it seems.

We do have a number of seemingly bad things on the horizon. I'm sure that if everything began to unfold exactly as HWA outlined, virtually everyone who had ever been part of the Armstrong movement would probably return to the fold. But, it won't.

If I had one wish, it would be that whatever negative or difficult things might happen would precipitate a spiritual revival, with the vast majority of people finding and developing relationships with God. This would have absolutely nothing to do with the ACOG splinters, and would most likely be the final event that killed them off.

If we can take anything good from ole Herb, it would be his statement of "Blow the dust off your bible!"

All these preachers like Ronald Weinland use the bible to run their enterprises, and it is only fitting that we counter all the falsehoods that proceed from their mouths with the very book they profess to know so much about.

The BEST part is coming!

As time passes and more 'prophecies' fail, and instead of Thunders we hear crickets, the pressure on Ron and Laura increases.

Those around him know what he has said, they've read his books. Why they've even made preparations for the influx on repentant millions due to the Thunders - not to mention Ron and Laura's Witnessing.

This isn't mockery so much as it is seriously considering Ron's words as legitmate and asking some pointed questions.

At some point, even if he actually believes it themselves, it will dawn on Ron and Laura (i'd think more on Laura as she seems more or less drug along) - it will dawn on them that they are WRONG.

It will be apparent to them and to their even most ardent followers - even their co-beneficiaries.

The pressure will be exquisite.

What would it be like to have to face others - when your claim to be God's Two Witnesses of Revelation has FAILED emphatically and embarassingly on its face...

AND YOU HAVE TWO MILL STONES CALLED "GOD'S PROPHESIED END TIME" AND "2008 GOD'S FINAL WITNESS"
TIED TO YOUR NECK... FOREVER?!

If there was ever a time for some fancy foot work!!! Its now!

So what will Ron do???

What about Laura???

What will they do?

Will God vindicate them or will he allow them to be exposed as False Prophets?



Stay tuned!!!

Dill Weed:

What will Ron do when his prophecies fail? I expect he'll do the same thing that happened when his first timeline failed -- come up with an excuse and yet another timeline. Unless something else intervenes, such as the IRS CID arresting him.

Dill Weed said...

Mike,

Ron's being arrested would be sweet!!

Even if he's not, he's got some fancy dancing to do!
