Gerald Flurry Fantasizing About Possessing the Stone of Destiny in Petra During the Great Tribulation

After I left a comment there Banned by HWA has pointed out that Gerald Flurry fantasizes about possessing the Stone of Destiny in Britain with him and the PCG members in the Place of Safety in Petra in his booklet, The Key of David.

I was pretty amazed reading that myself actually.

Gerald Flurry's comments regarding the Stone of Destiny in Chapter 6 and 7 are quite bizarre. Like look at these, and Gerald Flurry is talking about the Stone of Destiny in Britain.
The whole world is going to have to come to understand what this stone is all about! It really does have to do with surviving as a nation or as a Church or as an individual. That stone ought to give you a special relationship with God. It isn’t today in Israel like it should, but it certainly should and it could. (Gerald Flurry, The Key of David, Chapter 6, p. 62.)
The Stone of Destiny in Britain will give you a special relationship with God, Flurry says. How is this not idolatry?

How is it that PCG members do not think words like these are strange?

I am well aware of how things like that can occur but it is still amazing to witness such things.

Also it is worth quoting Silenced on this issue.
Proponents also claim the Stone of Scone, or the Scottish coronation stone, is Jacob’s Pillar, an ancient Israelite relic. But this also makes no sense: “Despite the claims of British Israelism that the Stone of Scone or Stone of Destiny was Jacob’s pillar, the stone did not originate in Palestine at all, nor is the Stone of Scone the Lia-Fail of Ireland. It is just a piece of sandstone from Scotland.” (Nettlehorst)
So it's all nonsense that the Stone of Destiny is Jacob's pillar. It's not. It's not going to give anyone a special relationship with God. It's not even from the Middle East. It's from Scotland.

Gerald Flurry is wrong about the Stone of Destiny. Totally wrong.

And that's not the only thing Flurry is wrong about either.

Flurry is also wrong about Malachi's Message being the Little Book. In fact Gerald Flurry plagiarized The Letter to Laodicea by Jules Dervaes (written December 1986-January 1988) to write Malachi's Message. Dervaes' writing was sent to 237 WCG ministers including Gerald Flurry and John Amos. In fact on September 26, 1990 Jules Dervaes sent a letter to Gerald Flurry in which he denounces Malachi's Message as "a direct and clear plagiarism" of his work.
