Armageddon Postponed Again: Weinland 04/03/2008: “The Day After Pentecost”
Weinland’s latest blog post:
“My wife and I, as well as Johnny and Myrtle Harrell, will be visiting Israel from April 14th through April 21st.  We will be in Jerusalem on April 17th which is the day the First Trumpet of the Seventh Seal sounds. The process of all that will occur, with the sounding of the First Trumpet, will begin on April 17th  and continue to increase in destructive power (consequences) for the following seven weeks. The Second Trumpet will not sound until after the Day of Pentecost. [June 8 2008]This does not mean it is near that date, but it means it cannot happen until after that day. [June 8 2008]
So the sounding of the first trumpet will “increase in destructive power” until the day after Pentecost [June 8 2008], hmmmmm? Kind of like the sounding of the thunders, isn’t it? In the book the seven thunders were supposed to increase in intensity before the seventh seal was opened [March 18th, 2008]. (“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.” [pp. 115, 2008: God’s Final Witness]”) Then the church recanted the book (which Weinland claims is inerrant, as the divinely inspired word of god), and started stating the seven thunders would sound in conjunction with the opening of the seventh seal (“The seventh seal is opened and the seven thunders intensify.”—form letter from Wayne Matthews to a baptized member) instead.
Now the first trumpet is being downplayed, and it’s “the second trumpet” that will determine whether or not Weinland is a false prophet. In the meantime, Weinland is out of the country, and the church is being left in the hands of its elders, and Passover Service Instructions have now been posted on the church’s website.
1:53:20 “Three More Weeks” RW March 29 sermon:
“If by Pentecost [June 8, 2008] I’m just going to make this real clear to everyone. If by Pentecost [June 8, 2008] 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 [June 8, 2008] 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 aaaaall those interviews that I have held. To do less. Well. Would be quite insane.”
So! For any critics who held Weinland to April 17th, 2008, now it’s “the day after Pentecost” [June 8, 2008]. What exactly, one wonders, will Weinland say on the day after “the day after Pentecost”? Atonement will be coming up next, and then the Feast of Tabernacles will be back on again.
Mark my words people, and this is one prediction I will stand behind: First the fast and then the Feast! The CoG-PKG will be whooping it up in Palm Springs for 8 days in October once again. This, after the Feast of Tabernacles was supposedly cancelled this year because of the great tribulation: Hearsay suggests the church’s reservations are still booked—I wonder why? Of course, we also can’t forget Weinland’s hard-and-fast prediction from Saturday’s sermon, “No president will take office in January of 2009.” That we can hold him to, if he hasn’t skipped town well before then.
Many critics are holding Weinland to the April 17th, 2008 date. I think the above amply demonstrates that doing this won’t matter, because Weinland keeps changing the dates, and making very few concrete predictions (save the ones in the books, which are now being verbally “spiritualized” away).
Also of note, the witnessing Weinlands are here claiming that they will be coming back on April 21st, 2008. I for one am surprised Weinland has not landed on the no-fly list, what with all his predictions of nuclear armageddon for several port cities in the US. Given that the elders will be given leadership of their respective congregations this coming Saturday, what reason do the Weinlands and the Harrells have to come back? That’s if Weinland isn’t canny enough in hiding his delusions from the Israeli authorities, and doesn’t get carted away for Jerusalem syndrome while he’s over there.
