Please don't preach doctrines here and/or rant against churches.
The topic of this thread is Speed Timothy Rathbun and his so-called "Trumpet Call of God."
Stay on topic.
These are the rules you agreed to before posting here.
From your post it appears you have pretty much decided to throw in with Rathbun and accept his supposed "letters from God" as somehow authentic.
That's your choice, but it doesn't seem to be a sound one given the facts.
"For the record, based upon the information provided on this site" Rathbun appears to be little more than a con man running a scam on religious folks such as yourself.
The idea that he is the chosen one picked to transmit letters from God is fairly ridiculous.
God doesn't need Rathbun's help for anything.
The bible remains the specific source for Christians and it warns about "false prophets."
Jesus said that "many will come in my name," but that he will not know them.
Jesus also warned, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
Rathbun seems to be one of those "wolves" Jesus warned about.
Hopefully, when Rathbun's prophecies fail, instead of accepting whatever new spin and apologies he offers, you will move on.
“How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord?” If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously..." (Deuteronomy 18:21-22).
There is no provision in the bible for the prophet getting a second chance to spin a new date etc.
In my opinion the Rathbun group fits the classical profile of a "cult."
Rathbun has hurt many people, apparently virtually destroyed at least one marriage and almost sabotaged another.
Maybe you should take a break to thinks this through more carefully before you follow this man and his supposed revelations to your own detriment.
It might also benefit your analysis if you had some input from local pastors and credible scholars of the bible in your area.
Go to some of the churches Rathbun rants against and get a second, third and fourth opinion. See what they have to say about his pronouncements.
Remember the Bereans?
"they received the message with great eagerness," but then "examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true" (Acts 17:11).
Rathbun certainly is no better than Paul.
So why not check things out that Rathbun says with the help of local seminarians, pastors and biblical scholars in your area?
Paul didn't seem to mind when the Bereans questioned him, so Rathbun who is not an apostle, pastor, seminary graduate, accredited bible teacher, or acknowledged biblical scholar, shouldn't mind if people question, scrutinize and evaluate him thoroughly.
And it's important when evaluating an apparent "con man" like Rathbun to have some credible experts unwind the way he twists scriptures and manipulates people.
Apparently you have thus far been unable to do this on your own.
If what Rathbun says is the "truth" it will stand.
As the New Testament says, ""For we can do nothing against the truth,but for the truth" (2Corinthians 13:8).
And Jesus said, "you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free" (John 8:32).
