(Mat 7:15) Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
Ron Weiland is up to it again, he writes:
This will be the third Pentecost that God's Church will have observed since Pentecost of 2012, the date we had previously believed was Christ’s return. This will also be the last Pentecost in this current sixth cycle of 1260 days in the measuring of the Temple of God – the Church. In the fourth Pentecost from this one, in 2019, we believe that the “complete count” to the actual coming of Christ and the Firstfruits (the 144,000) of God will be fulfilled.
Emphasis mine -- "Pentecost 2012, the date we had previously believed was Christ's return." -- an admission by RW himself of his error. He then goes on to cover his error with other meaningless explainations. He believes himself to be one of the End Times Two Witnesses mentioned in Revelation 11 and it seems he has decided his wife, Laura, is the other witness. How is it professing believers bother to listen to him? Maybe it is because he is saying things others "want to hear"?
(2Ti 4:3-4) For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. ESV
This explains it, not just RW but all false prophets. They (false prophets) all say things to captivate those of weak hearts who lust for physical salvation and make captives of them. The are deceived themselves, in many cases, believing their own lies. Not unlike those teaching the false doctrine of Imminent Return, they spew out words to titillate the lust of imagination, like fairy tales and fables capturing the heart of imaginations ultimately ignoring reality.
(2Ti 3:12-13) Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in the Christ YaHshua will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
Deception becomes a choice. You have to chose to follow a false prophet or minister or preacher or teacher or to follow YaHshua. We can all be fooled but it behooves us to study the Word, the Record, the Bible left for us by our God and our Savior and His Apostles and to take hold of the gift for ourselves, letting no man steal away our Salvation.
(Php 2:12) Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,
Imagine how foolish you will sound when you stand before the Judge and say, "He or she fooled me ... blah, blah, blah." When you are called, when your mind is opened to His Word and you see the gift of salvation offered, it is offered to YOU, not to your minister or teacher, but to you -- you have the choice, you have to chose and from that calling it is up to you to study, to read, to listen to His Word and the Words of His Apostles (Original Disciples). We have those words in many different translations in many different languages, we are without excuse.
I have seen people called to the Lord and soon after make the mistake of thinking the first groups they encounter or hear must be the true body of the Christ. This happens all the time. Even Paul found this disturbing during his time of ministry in the service of YaHshua.
(1Co 1:12-15) Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.
Do you hear Paul's frustration? It does not matter where you hear the words that convict you, words that bring you to Him. You may be listening to a minister who will one day be found guilty of some crime, then what? Some will insist the criminal is still their prophet and continue following him -- as opposed to following the Messiah. Many give up their salvation to follow a false prophet because they feel their calling is tied to that individual when in fact it is not. What does it matter if you hear the message from Satan if you are turned to the Messiah and follow Him? It does matter if you are convicted and see the Light of our Savior for a brief moment but then follow Satan, convinced he is the answer because your mind was opened at that moment. Too many worship those presenting the message, those who then lead you astray and away from that message that first convinced you and now lead those who continue to follow men as opposed to our Savior and His Words and the words of His Apostles as we read from their Letters to the Churches.
It cannot be said enough -- read, study the word already delivered and let what we have now as our guide, as our rule of measurement to determine if what we hear from others is true or not. If you do not take the time to read the words for yourself you can become an easy victim of the wolves that will say anything to make you a captive of their flock whom they eventually will devour.
