Ronald Weinland “Disappointed” But Intends to “Go Forward”

In a new post at, dated May 26th, Ronald Weinland repudiates his own prophecy that Christ would return on May 27, 2012, an hour after nuclear war begins.

Here are excerpts from Weinland’s post:

We have believed that Jesus Christ would begin his return in the atmosphere of this earth today, the Sabbath day of May 26th. We have believed this to be a matter of timing for sundown in Jerusalem toward the end of May 26th. As I write this, that time is just about here and nothing has begun in the world that would signal the need or purpose for that reality—Christ’s return…

So candidly, I am disappointed that Jesus Christ hasn’t begun his return. But I am also excited to know that there remains a short work in front of us. That will be explained in the Pentecost sermon that I will be organizing and prerecording as soon as I finish writing this post.

Through all this my initial hope remains the same, as the sun has not set on the 26th in all the world. But if we must go forward, then so be it! God’s will be done.

As I write, it is Sunday 27th in every city of the world.  Still there is no crash of the US dollar, no WWIII, and no second coming.  So what has Ronald Weinland got to say?

“We must go forward”. 

In other words he is going to wriggle out of his failed prophecy, and invent an extension of time,  “a short work in front of us”, to enable him to revise his prophecy:

“That which God is now revealing is a little more difficult because we had our hope so set on Christ coming on this Pentecost. Knowing that he may not is indeed disappointing, but it is not something to shake our faith in any manner. Instead, we take the good with the bad and we move forward!”

Move forward into what Mr Weinland?  I hope that you will move forward into an admission that you deceived people and perhaps even yourself.  I hope that the short work ahead of you will be the fruits of genuine repentance.  But knowing false prophets as I do, for in my lifetime I’ve seen several come and go, I will most likely be disappointed in that hope.

Having seen Ronald Weinland and his followers disappointed in their hope, we might all remind ourselves of a virtue of the true hope that we have in Jesus:  “hope does not disappoint” (Romans 5:5).

Ronald Weinland Latest

Ronald Weinland, what’s the latest on your prediction of World War III and the second coming of Christ May 27th?   Well I don’t know everything, but I’m sitting in my lounge chair in Australia, Saturday night three hours before May 27 ticks around in this part of the world.  The nearest thing I’ve seen to World War III is a fireworks display an hour ago,  with lots of bangs and bright flashes, across the road at the Childers Show Grounds.   Quite a show, but a bit premature and not what you predicted.

Is anything happening over your way Ronald Weinland? What’s the latest over there? Do you reckon there’s still enough time for WWIII to start?   Yes, well I suppose the Europeans and Chinese have a few hours left to push the nuke buttons.  And I suppose they would be keeping their intentions a secret.  You’ve blown the whistle on them, but nobody’s listening except your followers.

Fair dinkum,  I wonder what your followers are thinking right now, since the US dollar is still hanging in there, its predicted demise not having happened. And what will they be thinking in a few hour’s time if your prophecy of WWIII and the second coming fails.  I feel sad for them.  Will their faith in Jesus be destroyed along with their faith in you?   We all pray not.

What kind of prophet are you, Ronald Weinland?

“When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing he predicts does not happen or come true, that is the thing that the Lord has not spoken.  The prophet has spoken it presumptuously.  You shall not be afraid of him.”  (Deuteronomy 18:22).

You said you were one of the two witnesses in the book of Revelation.  But you are about to become the false prophet in that book, Ronald Weinland.  That’s the latest on you.  And the world goes on to see more false prophets arise.

Jesus will come, of course, when the right time arrives.  Even so, come Lord Jesus.

Ronald Weinland’s Prophecy

Revelation (flames of fire)

Last year it was  Harold Camping who prophesied the end of civilisation as we know it.  This year it’s Ronald Weinland.

“The year 2008 marked the last of God’s warnings to mankind and the beginning in a countdown of the final three and one-half years of man’s self-rule that will end by May 27, 2012.”  -stated  by or on behalf of  Ronald Weinland

Weinland styles himself a prophet of God and compares himself to John who wrote the book of Revelation.  In fact he claims to offer a “revelation of the Book of Revelation” as though John wrote what could not be understood until Ronald came along.

In his book Weinland says…

 “These events, on this last day of man’s rule and the beginning of God’s rule, will be the most dramatic day of all human history—far beyond human ability to fully comprehend, much less believe.”

This includes, according to Weinland,  World War 3, the last great war of mankind.

Well there are only ten days to go.  We’ll soon know if Ronald Weinland is yet another false prophet.

The Highway Sign

Along the main roads around Bundaberg and Maryborough, a church has placed this sign…

At the top of the billboard are the words, “Listen to Jesus”.  How important is that message?

As people travel the highway, they are exhorted to do all kinds of things.  “Say hello to Clint”  one sign says.  “Stop, Revive, Survive” says another.  “Drunk Beans are Best” asserts another.  “Pyefinch for Mayor” yells yet another.  But this sign says, “Listen to Jesus”.  Does that billboard beat all the other billboards for relevance and importance?

Jesus said, “Everyone who hears my sayings and acts upon them may be likened to a wise man who built his house upon the rock” (Matthew 7:24).  “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me”  (John 14:6).

Who is listening to Jesus?  Who believes that it matters?
