COUNTDOWN BEGINS – GET FAMILY MEMBERS OUT BY PASSOVER!
The quotes below were taken from here: http://ronaldweinland.com/?p=54
“As it was mentioned in this past Sabbath’s sermon, the final countdown has begun, as the 1335 days before the actual day Jesus Christ returns began on February 2, 2008.” UPDATED!!
“All that we are experiencing right now is a very small taste, just an ice cube on the tip of an iceberg of what is coming, as God begins to call thousands upon tens of thousands of people over the next year. From there it goes into the millions—all in preparation for the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of God’s Government over all the earth in the fall of 2011.”
I think that’s more than enough proof Ronald is still drinking his own Kool-Aid.
“Concerning the postings on this site, many will be deleted as they have served their purpose, but others will remain that contain some helpful information for those that are new.”
Translation: We will be removing all evidence that we ever made predictions, so that when it all hits, we can maintain complete deniability.
Anonymous comment on an ex-member forum:
“I have also heard that he[Weinland] has money in swiss accounts. He just bought a brand new VW from Germany. Makes you wonder if he will not , “flee” alone, if these things do not come to pass. They keep it in the family. His daughter keeps the books. I believe his son is also on the payroll.
Very sad and potentially dangerous situation for the brethren.”
Another commenter points out:
“Well, if the 1335 started Feb 2, then that means that the 1290 will start March 18th, and that the 1260 will start April 17th, which is the day before Passover (by most in the COG observance).” The comment continues: “Let’s hope and pray that Weinland’s nuttiness and delusion will not end up with people acting out or harming people permanently or having suicides, murders, financial disaster or any other dysfunction or consequence other than Weinland’s own disillusionment.”
According to the Weinland site, they will celebrate the Passover on April 19th. It is the day that Weinland has set as the beginning of the 1260 days.
The Passover observance will likely see CoG-PKG members gathered, either in a rented facility, or in each other’s homes. Through the use of the Internet (”God is blessing us mightily through the tool of modern technology, especially in the use of the Internet”), Weinland could potentially activate a suicide order amongst cult members on or around April 18-19, 2008.
If you know anyone who is a member of the Church of God Preparing for the Kingdom of God, you need to get them to a qualified exit counselor immediately, by any means necessary. I would like to think the worst of Ronald Weinland, namely that he is fully aware of the fact that he is misleading the members under his “care”, but based on the evidence this must not be assumed to be true.
If you cannot do this, at all costs do not break off contact with them. No matter what they try, no matter how much of an effort they make to isolate themselves, you have to let them know there is one person out there in the wider world, who can anchor them to reality if they are willing to take that step. Do not be confrontational, do not mention the ex-CoG blogs, just be there for them.
If you cannot be there for them, think of them, no matter where you are, or what they may be going through. Weinland Watch is holding all those still trapped in the Church of God – Preparing for the Kingdom of God in the light.
