One way the PCG leadership has tried exploit the recent war centered in the Palestinian Gaza Strip is to claim that this round of violence fulfilled a prediction by their leader, Gerald Flurry. In an article dated May 2, 2021 Gerald Flurry wrote the following while indulging in yet another rant bad mouthing President Biden and the Democratic Party.
Biden is empowering Iran so it may soon obtain nuclear weapons. I am certain we will have more Palestinian terrorist attacks now because of who is in charge. (Gerald Flurry, What Will Happen After Trump Regains Power, April 2021.)
Then a few weeks later tensions escalate into full scale war in the Gaza Strip partly because of unrest in East Jerusalem. Over 200 people were killed. And the PCG leadership tried to exploit this deadly tragedy into evidence that their leader in Edmond, Oklahoma can somehow see the future.
Three weeks ago, before the current violence, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry warned our readers to watch for increased terrorist attacks in Jerusalem because of the Biden administration’s position. ... Almost immediately after that statement was printed, the violence in Jerusalem increased. The connection to the Biden administration’s pro-Palestinian positions is unmistakable. (Brent Nagtegaal, Watch Jerusalem Now!, May 10, 2021.)
These tensions have been ongoing for decades. The court case in Sheikh Jarrah has been ongoing for decades. It is essentially inevitable that rounds of unrest and violence in the current political situation will occur. That is a dreadful shame but that is the way things at the moment and has been for decades.
So it is factually unfounded for the PCG leadership to claim that those words Gerald Flurry wrote in April 2021 somehow predicted the future. Anyone who pays attention to the situation in Jerusalem could have said the same thing.
Once again we see that the PCG leadership are false prophets. They cannot see the future. There is no need to be loyal to the PCG leadership to get close to God. Paying tithes and offerings cannot get divine favor. The PCG leadership are but false prophets.
