Ronald Weinland is the last apostle in a long lineage of apostles, beginning with the original 12 who were established in 31 AD. He is the last apostle to God's Church before Christ returns to establish God's Kingdom which will reign over every nation on earth. He was preceded by Herbert W. Armstrong who was the apostle to God's Church in the Worldwide Church of God until his death in January of 1986.
After Herbert W. Armstrong died, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr. received the control and leadership of the Worldwide Church of God, although he was not an apostle. In the early 1990′s, as a matter of Church government, this man began to change many of the ways Mr. Armstrong had led the Church. He also began to make subtle changes in several Church teachings. Then, in December of 1994, he gave a sermon to the Church where he set out to change every major doctrine of God’s Church. He was later revealed to be the prophesied “man of sin” and “son of perdition” that Paul wrote about in 2 Thessalonians 2. Paul explained that this man who would betray Jesus Christ would have to be revealed within the Church before Christ would return.
God revealed that this man of sin was also the antichrist that John specifically made reference to later in his ministry when he spoke of many antichrists coming on the scene within the environment of the Church. This “man of sin” and “son of perdition” was made known by God after He revealed His judgment against him. Exactly 280 days later, to the very hour, from when he had declared that God’s Sabbaths were no longer required for God’s people, God took his life.
That number did not go unnoticed by those with whom God was working to reestablish a remnant for His Church after two-thirds of the people had left the Church, and the other third had become scattered into over 600 different organizations following that prophesied Apostasy. The number seven is used by God to reveal “that which is complete,” as in the seven day week, the seven annual Holy Days, etcetera. The number 40 is used to reveal “God’s judgment.” The combination of 7 times 40 gives a total count of 280 days—fully revealing God’s complete judgment executed against this son of perdition, the man of sin.
After the Apostasy, a third of the Church that had become scattered was protected from Satan for the next 1,260 days, as it was revealed in Revelation that God would do so. That period of protection for the scattered Church ended on Pentecost of 1998 when God had then reestablished His Church in only one of the many scattered groups. It was a small remnant group that took on the name of the “Church of God –Preparing for the Kingdom of God.” God not only made Ronald Weinland the last apostle to His Church at the end-time, but He also made him a prophet. God and Jesus Christ had made only one other apostle a prophet, and that was John who was given to record the Book of Revelation.
God gave Ronald Weinland to be John’s counterpart and also gave to him to be both an apostle and prophet, whose commission has included revealing what John had written. That which John recorded was not for him to understand and it was not for his time, but it was for this very end-time, and that necessitated sending a prophet who would reveal what God had given to John. Some of the very prophecies John wrote were about God’s two witnesses who would not come on the scene until the very end-time. God has made both Ronald Weinland and his wife to be His two end-time witnesses who are spoken of in Revelation 11 and in the Book of Zechariah.
Although most of those from the third of the Church that was scattered after the Apostasy are looking for the opening of the First Seal, they do not understand that all Seven Seals of Revelation have already been opened, and that we have already entered the very end of the end-time. The Seven Trumpets of the Seventh Seal are all that remain to be physically fulfilled before Christ returns to rule this earth. Those Trumpets will begin to become manifest in great physical tribulation throughout this earth at various points between the 8th of November in 2015 and Pentecost on the 9th of June in 2019, at which time Christ will return to this earth.
The Church originally had been given Pentecost of 2012 as the timing for Christ’s coming, and when he did not return, it was believed that Christ might instead return on Pentecost of 2013. During that year, however, God was not showing “why” Jesus Christ had not returned, and it was not until some time later that God began to reveal the reasons why He had moved all prophetic end-time events forward by exactly seven years. That story is included in Ronald Weinland’s third book, entitled, Prophesy Against the Nations.
As John was given the Book of Revelation to record while imprisoned by the Roman government on the Isle of Patmos, Ronald Weinland was given to write this third book while falsely imprisoned by the government of the United States for evading the payment of taxes. This third book fulfills a specific prophecy in the Book of Revelation. It also reveals God’s last warning to those of His Church who were scattered after the Apostasy. Although it also reveals God’s last warnings to all nations, it gives specific nations encouragement to accept His intervention to help and to even save millions.
From the time of the Apostasy to the return of Jesus Christ on Pentecost of 2019, there will have been 7 prophetic end-time periods of 1,260 days fulfilled. These and many other incredible numerical counts to Christ’s coming are also covered in that third book which will be fully ready for publishing and distribution in 9 languages by early 2016.
