Ron’s Great Tribulation Delays Again.
A Prophet’s Log (Flushing Sound)
Our Commission Pt 2 (Sermon Summary)
Countdown: 1195 Days
Remaining Sabbaths: 171
Number of Fulfilled Prophecies: 0
2/13/09 and Still No 2nd Trumpet
Ron comments on snow in the Detroit area. (He’s still not using his Witness powers to change the weather. Next time, Bowling Green Kentucky – close to me. (Damn, that could bring out the devil in me.)
Ron rambles on about the need for unleavened bread – Passover. (Try tortillas) Blah, blah, blah, blah…. Ron doesn’t consider providing food miraculously for his flock. They’ll have to use their second tithes. Ron anticipates the world continuing to exist until tabernacles. Blah, blah, blah, blah….
Ron reports God has “given him some new things.” (Oh, goody) Ron plays second fiddle to Mr. Armstrong. Blah, blah, blah, blah….
Now, it’s “maybe even a year from now that things will begin to start in earnest with power.” Ron’s Great Tribulation delays again. Ron spoke of HWA having a sense of urgency. Preachers have been crying The End is near to control people for a long damn time.
Ron rails against previous COG ministers. Blah, blah, blah, blah…. Agabus (Some prophet from the bible – a real one.)…. Blah, blah, blah, blah….
Talking about infallibility, Ron says he is to “give certain things about certain dates.” (He has given more than a few things about certain dates – all of them wrong.) God has given Ron things about chronology… like Christ returning on Pentecost 2012. It’s ABSOLUTE he says. (Oh boy, another prophecy!) And finishes with, “I am a prophet.” The prophetic claim is made again. (Grrr)
Ron rails against pride… Blah, blah, blah, blah…. Humility…. Blah, blah, blah, blah…. Fetish. Awesome to understand…. Ron is dumbfounded… Ron marvels… (Yawn)
Ron’s little flock is looked down on by other groups. (Boo-Hoo) They are ridiculed and scorned (Waaa!) Ron gets dumbfounded again with respect to tithes. (Big surprise, eh?) Ron gets double dumbfounded. LOL
The theory of ever increasing light…. What Ron says today… trumps what he said yesterday… because God is ‘revealing more to him’… Same way with JWs and others, too. "It’s an awesome (self serving) process." (It sure is and a flexible and forgiving one, too. Most malleable to one’s wishes indeed. JWs are really sneaky about this, too. They pave the way for ‘new light’ years ahead of time – all the while maintaining urgency - much more sophisticated than Ron’s one man, one woman, Two Witness show.) The theory of ever increasing light can justify any religion.
Mightily so…. Blah, blah, blah, blah…. Awesome to understand…. Blah, blah, blah, blah…. Very powerfully so… Blah, blah, blah, blah….
Nothing splinters better than COG churches.
Crow is the diet of the humbled. There “maybe no Thunders for a year. So what?” That’s a good thing.… Trumpets get louder and louder. Blah, blah, blah, blah….
A lot of this sermon focused on leaders ‘confessing error’ as a sign of the true church. Some crap about 19 year time cycles. (Sounds like some boring crap to me.)
Ron hopes the sermon was inspiring. (It wasn’t.)
Tick Tock. Your time runs short, Ron Weinland.
