Banned by HWA reports that LCG, PCG, RCG, the self ordained Bob Thiel and James Malm are all exploiting this development to insist that that their dire predictions will soon come true. They are eager to use this to "prove" that many other things they say are also true.
This Armstrongite claim is, of course, nonsense.
In order to believe that Brexit somehow fulfills HWA's alleged prophecies one needs to ignore the many false prophecies HWA and his followers made. HWA said Christ would return in 1975. The Painful Truth has a list of 209 false prophecies made by HWA and his imitators.
Those devoted to perpetuating Armstrongism has a strong motive to ignore these many inconvenient proofs that HWA and Co. do not know what will happen in the future. We have been lied to since the day HWA churned out the first issue of his Plain Truth recruitment magazine back in February 1934.
Back then HWA insisted that Mussolini would be "the Beast" who would conquer the United States. Later he said it was Hitler who was fated to conquer the United States. Even after Hitler died HWA insisted that Hitler had survived and would reappear to lead Europe to conquer the United States.
For a time HWA thought Yugoslavia's leader, Tito, would become "the Beast" fated to conquer America which he obliquely admitted in his 1956 booklet, 1975 in Prophecy.
I have warned the radio audiences to watch TITO. Of course, Tito is not identified personally in prophecy-nor is any other man. Only the major EVENTS are revealed. ... I have even suggested the possibility that Tito might be the man to lead the new Nazi-Fascist Europe-though that possibility has appeared most slight. Remember again, prophecy does not identity the MAN. More probably he will be a German. We shall not have to wait much longer to know! IT'S LATER THAN YOU THINK! (HWA, 1975 in Prophecy, 1956.)In his last book, Mystery of the Ages, HWA insinuated that Christ would return within two decades, in other words by 2005 at the latest. However PCG has removed those words from their copies of that book. Since PCG now owns the copyright they can make whatever changes to it they wish.
Also if the COGs really could see the future than why isn't the entire world listening to them to get the inside scoop of the future? With the inside scoop on the future the various COGs are only able to get a few thousands to join them at most. They have such wondrous power of foresight, the COGs' leaders tell us, but hardly anyone is willing to act on it and join them? Why is it like this? Because the COGs' claims about the future are not true. These false prophecies are a tool to get people to join the COGs and pay tithes to them.
In order to believe "he was right" it is necessary to ignore all these other facts. HWA and his imitators are but false prophets. There is no need to fear HWA's words or any of his imitators. The false prophets of the COGs need you and your tithes but you do not need them.
