Ronald Weinland-May 27th, 2012, Jesus Christ Returns

Ronald Weinland

His book.
His book.

The initial reaction is, "another whack job, looney, predicting the end of the world and Jesus returns based on the Book of Revelations", I'm sure. After all, there have been more than few in the past few years and each time, the date passes and life on earth goes on. The next question is, who in the hell is Ronald Weinland?

He is the pastor of the Church of God and is read in over 160 countries. In 1997, he claims God appointed him as his earthly prophet to warn all that he can that the final days of mankind is very near. According to him, the last of the seven seals mentioned in the Book of Revelations was opened and casted upon earth in Nov. 2008. The beginning of the 3.5 year tribulation, a time when earth and mankind will suffer immense pain, began in Dec. 2008, with the first trumpet that brought the world economies into a tailspin. Since that time, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th trumpets have sounded all causing more crisis and mayhem with the US influence greatly diminishing in the world. The 5th trumpet has not sounded, that is because, when this occurs, a major war or conflict will occur in the Middle East. The is war will be horrific and millions will die from nuclear and non-nuclear causes as NATO nations fight Iran, China, Russia. In this final time, God is allowing mankind to temporarily experience a false sense of hope and belief that he can solve his own problems.

A new world power consisting of 10 European nations will supersede the USA and the primary motivation of Iranian leaders is based upon their fervent Islamic Shiite belief in the coming of the prophesied 12th Imam Mahdi who will usher in Armageddon. Their belief is that by destroying Israel it will trigger “the coming” of the last Islamic Messiah. They believe that they are the ones who will fulfill Allah’s will to aid and help in the fulfillment with obtaining a nuclear device.

Now, unlike the other predictions, the events since 2008 seem to mirror Ronald Weinland's statements and one does not even need to be a believer to see that some sort of conflict is coming with Iran. If you deny it, you simply are being a "Alice in Wonderland". The situation in the Middle East suggests chaos on a grand scale is coming. Iran is not going to stop trying to get a bomb. Israel is not going to allow them to do it, with or without the USA. The US-Israeli relations are strained as Obama wants to wait and wait. If Israel attacks, it will unravel rapidly as retaliation happens. Will the US abandon Israel ? Many in Israel do not like Obama. But, like many have said, the longer you wait, the more time Iran has. If Iran truly feels as it does about the 12th Iman, nothing will change the course because it will come to past. The economic situation since 2008 has been nearly a depression and remains bad, despite what seems to getting better. One could blame it on the banking and real estate and greed, or, you could say a trumpet has blown allowing this sort of thing to occur.

While May 27th, seems to be in stone, in the course of three months, some dramatic events must unfold if the Book of Revelations is followed: Europe will became a dominant power, the Antichrist must come to power and control how millions will buy and sell and be forced to believe in him. Those that do not, cannot buy or sell anything via electronic means.

Maybe we are just entering into the first 3.5 yrs of the seven year tribulations, or maybe this is the last 3.5 yr. period, in any case, watch and see what events unfold. Be open and not a naysayer because until May 27th does or not pass, who knows?

Why is it that most Christians completely ignore the fact that Jesus informed his followers that they would see the end-times in their own day? And elsewhere in the New Testament it says that the end-times are "already at the door." How does "it is already at the door" come to mean two thousand years from now?

If my daughter tells me someone's knocking at the door, I don't say, "No, sweety, that knock you're hearing is two thousand years into the future."

It is well known among Bible scholars--and anyone who's studied the Bible---that the early Christians believed that the end times would happen in their lifetimes. That's why the Apostle Paul was so adamant in telling believers that "If you are slave, remain a slave." "If you are single, don't seek a wife", etc. The sense of urgency was acute because they believed the end times were upon them. And apparently, even the Son of God mistakenly thought the end-times would happen then.

And what about the well known but often ignored admonition from Jesus that "No man knoweth the day or the hour, not even the Son of Man."? So, then, why do Christians continue to humor publicity-seeking cranks like Ronald Weinland? It's people like him that give fodder to Christianity's critics, such as myself. Christianity would do well to ignore and distance itself from people like him.

Sorry for the rant, but, back when I was a Fundamentalist Baptist, I used to listen to all the Revelation fanatics like Hal Lindsay, David Weber, et al. and they were always wrong in their end-times predictions, which they would then revise, only to be wrong again.

It's not that I'm not open---I used to believe that stuff. But, then I opened my mind and my eyes and did my own research and educated myself. I've gone from believer to naysayer for a reason.

But, in spite of my naysaying, your hub is excellent, and I'm sure you will get many agreeable comments from the believers on HubPages---and that's why I'm voting it up!

The rapid turn of events in the world point to the revelation of prophecies and the possiblity of manifestation within the next decade. However, as you mentioned, it may be the beginning of the tribulation and maybe not. As you said, many predictions for this year have already come and gone regarding time/month. It will all happen as planned at the right time and only God knows the exact moment. For us, we must keep focused and faithful to the end.

Interesting insight, but it pays to do some more research. Good article and thanks for sharing. Voted up!

I think the hardest thing to do is conceptualize the end. The change. How could life as we live now be different etc. No different than what is afterlife like? Saying the end of the world on a specific date is near impossible to believe in. However, there are signs since 2008, if one chooses to look at them that way.

Well, another one bites the dust. Tribulation begins in or around the year 2020. The first half will be far worse than now and the second will be so bad, people will wish to die.

Yes, I forgot about this. I think things are slowly getting worse overall.

I don't take to new prophesy. It's bad business. We have the two real prophets during the second half, but other than that, I'd consider any claim to new prophesy as false.

The Lord said "the generation who sees these things..." speaking about Israel becoming a nation once again; would see Christ coming in the clouds (speaking of the end of the tribulation in this particular passage) Israel became a whole nation once again in 1967. A generation, according to the Bible, is 52 years. If you add 52 years to 1967 you get 2019. Now, subtract seven years for the tribulation, you have 2012. No one knows the exact date, not even Jesus knows. But His word does say we shall know the season...and we are in that season now. The one world religion, Chrislam, has emerged! On June 26 of last year, 26 leaders from different nations, and a large number of populare ministers got together and read the Bible and the Quran side by side and agreed on this religion. I say again, the one world religion as emerged...this is the season! It may not necessarily be 2012, but the mathematical figure does show just how close we are. Also, we just had a venus transit, and two other heavenly wonders happen recently, all three in one month. Venus, in the ancient times, was called Son of the Morning; Jesus said that in that day, the son of the morning would appear in the heavens! Just an interesting fact worth pointing out. God bless all of you; goodnight.

Lyn, I tend to agree but will continue to watch for the signs. I think a world economic collapse is coming.

I agree...there is going to be terrible things such as the economy collapsing (economy is already suffering), signs in the heavens (already happening),strange weather patterns (already happening), increase in earthquakes and destructive storms (happening,http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww... children hating their own parents and vice versa, and more... the list just keeps growing. And now, there is the Chrislam religion--it has been around for a while, but just got bigger here as of late. You might be interested in this article that was forwarded to me yesterday http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/4... (it has to do with planned destruction of our economy!) All sorts of things are happening, and should be proof to everyone that we are the generation; for Jesus said, 'the generation that sees these things..shall see the Son of Man in the clouds,' I'm not quoting that verbatim because my Bible is not in front of me at the moment, but you know the verse I'm speaking of. God bless you, and I hope you enjoy the article I linked, as well as the govt earthquake activity statistic site. Have a wonderful day!

One more thing I forgot, you had mentioned the Imam Mahdi (the great Islamic political/religious leader who fits the description to the T of the person Christians are looking for to be their Antichrist) Also, there is the the Muslim Nabi Isa (prophet Jesus), and Isa al-Measeeh (Jesus the Messiah), and Hadrat Isa (the peace bringing Honorable Jesus) who fits the description of the man we call the false prophet. They believe in a different Jesus than we believe in. I thought you might want to mention here the book, "Islamic Antichrist" by Joel Richardson. There is, as you brushed on, a definite parallel between the Islamic imam Mahdi (the great political/religiouis leader who will break all of the crosses, the crushing of all Christian crosses is the abolishing of the Muslim jizyah tax,and who will establish Islam as the one and only religion of all of the earth. The prophet Jesus (Nabi Isa) shall accompany him and perform many wonders and miracles. They believe Jesus did not die on the cross, but that God had mercy on him, therefore removing Him from the cross and replacing him with someone else to suffer in his place. They do not believe in the Holy Trinity, only Allah (or God, if you will), and that god is one divine being. They believe the idea of God having a son is absurd. Regardless, Joel Richardson paints a clear picture of the Antichrist unlike any other. I just thought to mention this to you real quick here.

This year, I think two signs will pass: A war in the middle east, maybe not the armageddon, but a major one with Iran and the economic collapse. Some experts indicate the Eurozone has only two months to get control of the collapsing situation in Spain, Italy, Portugal and France. Germany is the only one doing well and they are dictating terms to the others regarding bailouts.

This best seller is fun to read. It's about the correlations between the destruction of ancient Israel and the pending destruction of America. I don't buy the attempt to declare a modern day prophet, making the lead character a genuine false prophet, but it has some interesting thoughts.
