Authorities in America didn't take too kindly to have a Prophet making millions from his book, did an investigation into his tax returns. The Prophet was soon facing a prison term.
From 2012 NEWS:
A federal judge sentenced self-styled doomsday prophet Ronald Weinland to three-and-a-half years in prison Wednesday for failing to pay taxes on income he earned while running a worldwide ministry from his Union home for more than a decade.U.S. District Judge Danny Reeves also ordered the 63-year-old to pay $245,176 in back taxes and a $7,000 fine. Weinland was found guilty in June of five counts of income tax evasion for failing to pay taxes on $4.4 million in income from 2004 through 2007, according to court records.
…Reeves said Weinland used ministry donations to pay for his son’s schooling and then tried to mischaracterize the expense as a scholarship. Weinland also used donations to pay for his son’s BMW, daughter’s living expenses and his wife’s trips around the world.McBride said Weinland used donations to pay for everything right down to the designer suit he wore at his own trial.
Herbert W Armstrong predicted persecution was coming on those people who believe in "Jesus Christ and believe in obedience to the commandments of God" (Rev 12:17).
I am another follower of Herbert W Armstrong, accused of being one of the Two Witnesses, have a laser beam placed on me, radio waves and synthetic telepathy beam to the head 24/7. Every day voices are talking to me and do not rest even on the Sabbath. They are targeting people everywhere now, a silent persecution of people whom have different religious and political opinions. Some they set up, others are killed, some they just drive crazy by putting them on mind control programmes.
The future is transhumanism. A technocratic dictatorship under Aquarius and Uranus--the planet of technology. Technology will enslave mankind for the "beast" system. They are doing this today. We need to wake up before it is too late. God heed the day. May Jesus Christ return and smash the final resurrection of the "beast" system (Rev 19:11).
