The 100 Latest Comments Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Linda, I think we can all relate to putting off dealing with our issues until it becomes too painful or miserable not to, such as your fear of confrontation causing you more misery and pain and time. Or we just don't know we have a problem that or if we do that the problem has a solution ("that's the way I am, I guess"). So we just ignore it. But I'm learning as God brings my own long-time inner-child fear issues up for healing, there is a way to reverse even decades long held dysfunctional belief systems. Tim McHyde on How and Why We Moved To GermanyAndreas, I'm happy you did, too. Glad to hear you got a proper diagnosis and relief. I know people with ADHD and Aspergers and without diagnosis and treatment it's quite a burden. I can't imagine how my articles helped you cope with that but one never knows how your writing will impact people for positive or negative reactions. Linda van der Vyver on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Thanks Tim. Yes, it all makes perfectly clear sense! I guess I still have to go a long way and grow more patience... I often tried to get through to my boss, but maybe I was too diplomatic, too vague, so she never knew the depth and all the frustration I went through daily. But I did give her a polite letter explaining my hurt and frustration and why I felt offended so often. She chose not to even acknowledge the letter or to at least discuss my concerns. My nature is to be totally conflict avoiding. But it also create (in the long run) a lot of supressed anger building up which one day explodes; which is then so intense (like what happened) that I did not even want to go back. With the result that I now have to work in another town, stay over with people, and drive a lot more with a lot more expenses till I can find another suitable job in my home town .... that's why I know I have to work harder at this problem of not addressing things as they happen, but instead I wait till they become out of hand 🙁 Andreas Sielski on How and Why We Moved To GermanyHi Tim & Katrina, I am so happy to have found you. It has been more or less about 10 years ago now since I have been following Escapeallthesethings, also own a copy of your great book. I was a member for a while, then I stopped...now I am happy to be back again on the support team. Looking back now, the reason I discontinued my membership before had less to do with money, and more to do with me being diagnosed with ADHD and Asperger Syndrome (has another name now?). I was strugling with this alone, since non of my family understood those things. I found the right doctor and finaly got diagnosed in 2012, just 5 years ago and now I'm 36. It was a bit late I think...I consider it a miracle. And this is in Sweden, by the way. Your teaching, your book and all those free articles have really helped me to cope in difficult times, I am very greatful and also inpired by journey and faith. Thank you, I will pray for you. Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Felicia, Richard got that idea from my book Know the Future where I present better evidence than even that video which has many mistaken ideas. The whole "after two days he will revive us" has nothing to do with 2000 years actually and is badly misapplied to this idea. He's missing John 4's "after two days" found in my book. Also the gospel is not going to the world through Christianity (http://escapeallthesethings.com/mt-24-14-meaning ). As for his "redemptive time" idea, also wrong. The reason the 6000 years started after the Fall was because of God's kingdom: http://escapeallthesethings.com/6000-year-timeline But of course, http://escapeallthesethings.com/no-man-knows-the-day-or-hour Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Felicia, Ask God to lead you on your money and if you hear nothing, go with practical long range planning which history shows is best while short-range thinking (especially based on prophetic expectations) never works out. Felicia on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=aZzGwdBVcF0 Richard, Wow that's crazy that you say that it makes so much sense! Check out the video I attached in this comment. That guy is saying the same thing as you except he mentions a few other reasons why he believes it will be 2030. Felicia on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)I'm 23. I feel like maybe I SHOULDN'Tput money into my retirement fund and look at investment options for my "future" lol. I don't think we will be here past my age of 35. But it's true, no one knows for sure. Hard call to make. Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Linda, you did nothing wrong. You were in your right to report abuse especially at work. It sounds like you were exercising patience for a long time, too. We all have a breaking point. You did well! Now this is not about perfection or performance but learning from our experiences to do better in the future. That attitude leads us to ask, could this have been handled even better? Sure, since you're not perfect yet... For example, maybe in the future you can deal with the negative emotions before you come to a decision. Like Dr. Phil says, don't get a divorce until you're no longer angry with your spouse. Settle the emotions first rather than make an emotional decision. It's wise. As far as the Sermon on the Mount teaching of Yeshua, it goes way beyond what love as defined staying within your rights or justifiable actions to a love where you get the biggest reward for the kingdom. Usually this means not exercising your right or making sure people get what they deserve like your boss. In that scenario, you would put up with your boss' abuse without complaining and use it to learn to control your emotions when your mistreated, praying for your enemies, etc. God can use this to refine you. Think of David under Saul and how abused he was because he could not life a finger against God's anointed king, even if he goes rogue. God refined David through this. But as he once said about another difficult route for the most righteousness, "not everyone can receive this saying" (Mt 19:11). You can grow into it and until you do, you're not wrong. It's all about what's going to give you the most overcoming and most reward in the kingdom and how much reward you are willing to sacrifice comfort and control in this life now for. Make sense? Tim McHyde on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?I've never heard of them, but if you watch the video I think you'll get the ammunition you need to debunk that claim, too. Also doesn't my prophecy proof in the article help, that Judah is in the land already ready to fight in the next two coming major wars at Jerusalem? To me that's the best evidence there is. Tim McHyde on Efrain Rodriguez Asteroid Tsunami Prophecy vs. Bible ProphecyWhy is an update to the article needed? Isn't it obvious from the date of the article it was about a past prediction and also obvious from Obama's normal departure that the prediction was indeed false as I said? Leaving the article alone shows I am a reliable source on these things, no? Chris Walker on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Tim, not trying to make waves, because I do not believe this way but what are your thoughts on the rising movement of Black Hebrew Israelites claiming similarly that the people who comprise current Israel are not the real children of Israel. The Hebrew Israelites believe that black people are the Lost tribe of Judah. I have not watched the Nehemiah Gordon video but I will. What's your take on this. Bill H. on Efrain Rodriguez Asteroid Tsunami Prophecy vs. Bible ProphecyWell, Obama is out of office and Trump is in. What happened to Obama declaring martial law? Perhaps you should update your article to point this out as well as other stuff since Obama is gone. Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)John, apart from a minority like you, most Christians want to know how soon their Lord will return to fix things and are interested to research the question and read articles like mine on what we DO know about timing (not the exact date when, but much detail on when it can't come yet, such as this decade). It's easy for people like you to forget that prophecy is part of the Bible and therefore good to study as part of a good "life." In fact, Revelation pronounces a blessing on those who study it (Rev 1:3). (P.S. You don't have to be filled with the HS or speak in tongues to be saved.) John Books on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)The rapture isn't an event set on a calendar. Why is everybody so concerned or wrapped up about that day?....when not one human being including Jesus himself knows the exact day of extraction. Only the Father knows the day & exact hour...WE ARE SUPPOSE to LIVE OUR LIVES AND BE READY for that day...period! I've heard these claims since the 70's. Everybody is trying to be that detective solving the mystery of a lifetime!!! Get a life, live out your destiny, GOD has already worked out the details...WE win if your saved...filled with the holy spirit...and speak the heavenly language. Linda van der Vyver on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Tim, I have been badly treated by my manager (female) for the past 5 months at work; could not take it any longer (I am conflict avoiding) but spoke up for once (she swept important matters under the carpet and did not even acknowledge the efforts I made to work in peace with her!) Now I have made a complaint through Head Office, spilling the beans of all her wrong-doings. I refer to this: "Yes by deciding to treat others as you would like to be treated" .... how do I now justify my actions because I feel so wronged and not valued, she treated me wrong and I reacted in anger and hurt. Is it wrong to have lodged the complaints? I am surely not turning the other cheek any more .... So hard! Please help as I am confused. Tim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsRay, There is no Planet X/Nibiru as I have covered before. Wormwood is what is prophesied and it can't come till 2026 at the earliest. Tim McHyde on How and Why We Moved To GermanySandra, Thanks for joining the team and for your comment. Overjoyed you find it helpful. wray boughner on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsHi, is this about the time we possibly might be seeing planet x (nibriu) aproching to pass between the sun and earth. Sandra Mavity on How and Why We Moved To GermanyTim & Katrina, I just listened to your podcast and I'm so happy that the Lord continues to bless you as you are obedient and faithful! It is so refreshing and uplifting to hear your testimony. I'm still reading and gaining knowledge from everything you write. Like pieces of the puzzle for me, undoing what I've been taught through many years. I look forward to hearing and reading much more from you! Blessings!!! Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Linda, it changes everything doesn't it? When you realize Yeshua was using offense on purpose, as a loving tool. Yes like my other article teaches, that's the actual Gospel or "Good News" of the Kingdom: when you seek God's kingdom he will take care of your needs (Mt 6:33=Mt 7:12). Yes by deciding to treat others as you would like to be treated (Mt 7:12) because God said so you are seeking the Kingdom and loving God by your obedience. It's that simple, but, of course, not easy to overcome years of habits, ingrained biases and prejudices, hurts and inertia. Yes, the video is great by John Bevere, but unfortunately it's a private upload not to be shared. People have to buy it. I'll put the link up. Secrets 2 and 3 are almost rough-written and I need to go back and finish it up. Hope to do it this week. Stay tuned and thanks for your support! Tim McHyde on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)Rickey, the Bible is not changed, but if you don't read the Bible in context understanding what it meant to the audience delivered to, then you will end up with incorrect conclusions. The passages you are quoting have to do with ancient Israel, not Westerners 3500 years later. There was no such thing as transgender or homosexual lifestyles back in Deuteronomy. What was very common back then that God addressed in those passages was pagan idol worship. Rickey Young on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)See Linda Rika youtube.com, heaven and hell. She spent eight hours in hell. Most people in the world will miss heaven. Please pray and ask God. He says he did not change one word of the entire bible. It means exactly what it says. Look at Matthew 22:11-13. A man kicked into outer darkness for clothing, only. Women wearing pants, perfume, makeup, and jewelry will not make heaven. Isaiah 3:16-24, and Deuteronomy 22:5. The Lord calls this the clothing of Jezebel. All preacher lie unless they speak/preach the entire bible word for word, only. Please pray and ask God. They pray five to ten hours in a church service in Korea. Who does this in America? Thanks. Linda van der Vyver on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Wow Tim ... I have never thought about these statements of Jesus to be offensive in the light that you explained it! Now they are starting to fall into place at last. The video is excellent and I so enjoyed listening to it. I want to share it on fb (what is the link please?) Not that I think there will be more than 1 or 2 people who would want to watch anyway, but still. Something stood out for me: When we are obedient, God will take care of our families. Great comfort to me; as you know, I have great sadness because my only child and her family does not believe in God anymore 🙁 What is this obedience? Love to God and to others? When can we get secret # 3? Or have I overlooked it? Cant wait to read more of this article. Gods blessings to you and your family Love, Linda NZ Lorraine on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Thank you Tim for your blessing Tim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsVader, Who says Jesus was not taken by God to heaven? I don't see anything in Luke about his departure that would clearly contradict the word harpazo. It says, after all, Luke 24:51 "While he was blessing them, he left them and was TAKEN UP into heaven" (!). The rest of Rev 12:5 "And she brought forth a man child, who is to shepherd all the nations with a rod of iron" leaves no doubt that this man child is Christ. The combination of features is too distinct to admit of doubt, it is the one who will feed His flock like a shepherd (Isaiah 40:12), who is to have, not His own people, but all nations as His inheritance (Psalm 2:7-9), and whose rule over them is to be supreme and irresistible. Tim McHyde on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Brian, I have now answered that in the article. vader Jakob on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsAs I understand it, "the Man Child" spoken of in Rev 12:5 cannot be Jesus of Nazareth, given the fact Jesus Christ was not "snatched away or taken by force "(Gr: harpazo) to the Father in Heaven . Compare with 1 Thess 4:17. Brian Spurgeon on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Here is a scripture that gives support for us praying for and loving Jerusalem and its people: "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels." Psalm 122:6-7. Tim McHyde on Flat Earth Debunked by Bible ProphecyAl, You don't have to trust NASA or any other space agency! You can prove for yourself the shape of the earth. I agree the Bible is not as clear as we'd like either way. Of course, that's not its purpose. It's not a science book. On the other hand, it does not confirm a flat earth or contradict a round earth. Tim McHyde on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Sharon, I don't know any verse teaching to love Israel, although it does say to love your neighbor = everyone. What some call atrocities I would mostly call Israel justly defending itself. Sharon on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?As Christian, we are taught in the bible to love Israel because God has chosen the Jews and given them all the land. However, I do have a problem with Israel today as most autrocities and weapon deals came from Israel themselves. Having all hands in all wars plus supplying weaponry to ISIS in Syria war. Dont forget that George Soros also a Jew from Hungarian whom has cause lots of crimes against humanities in this world and he is still doing it today. Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Brad, Absolutely not. We're almost already in what would be the sabbath year cycle (starting spring) and with no sign of a ME war and no sign of Elijah or a temple, it's business as usual and nothing prophetic on the horizon. We're good until 2026 for WWIII/Wormwood at the earliest. Tim McHyde on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Kate, Yes, but don't you think God could have stopped that if he wanted to curse the nation who cursed Israel again? It does not matter how they got blessed, the point is they were not cursed they were blessed, yes? And against all odds after having a Hitler not only tear Europe apart but also have a plan at genocide. It's quite remarkable Germany has done so well despite the tremendous cursing they did. It cannot be ignored. If a theory requires you ignore something this big, the theory has a problem, yes? AL LECOU on Flat Earth Debunked by Bible ProphecyPerhaps the flat earth has scriptural support. Isn't the Hebrew word for ball something like dure pronounced dur? Yet Hebrew scripture is reported to use something like khoog and pronounced as Chug, denoting a circle. Are we really to believe anything from the govt. space agency NASA when virtually every govt. agency churns out lie after lie? (Wikileaks) According to NASA we are speeding around the universe at 1,800,000+ MPH and we don't feel a thing. NASA's own formula regarding curvature exposes their untenable position. 8 inches of drop for every mile squared so Catalina Island at 22 miles from Long Beach CA should be 22 squared x 8 inches = 363 feet below the horizon yet Catalina Island is clearly visible from the Ca shore. SueW on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaThank you for the encouragment, Katrina. Increasingly, the connection I need is coming from, and with God. I have long thought that my community and the people I come into contact with every day is my "church". If every one with whom I have had contact feels a little better for my interaction, encouragement and hugs (if appropriate!), my day has been worthwhile. Tim's website (with your involvement!) is also a blessing. I learn a little something from each post. God bless you both. Brad Smith on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Hi Tim - If the middle east war happens this spring, do you think there will be enough time for our Lord to return in 2023, or does that leave insufficient time for all of the other prerequisites? kate on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Hello from Australia, I was taught that Germany only survived financially after WW2 because the Yanks sunk millions into Germany's restructuring (no doubt, to avoid another post-war situation in Germany that nurtured Nazism and contributed to Hitler's succession.) John Miesel on If You Think A Recent Disaster Was A Judgment or Warning Sign…Tim, your quote: God's past revelation is the only valid guide to judge any new wisdom about the future. Anything that contradicts what God has said or leads one in a direction inconsistent with the clear teachings in the nation's traditions is untrustworthy and misleading. The light of God's truth is not in it. Reminds me of Isa 46:10: declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, 'My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,' Keep up your clear headed "analysis" Kingsley on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?You really read my mind on this heretic lies propagated by a section of the ignorant church. You can't tied God's curse to present occurrence of environmental disaster or what ever. My problem with this over-solidarity pro Jewish or Israel people is that they overlook every wrong done by the Israeli government. I'm of the opinion that why can't the Jewish people lives peacefully with the Palestinians as this is the nature of God. Confiscating lands without compensation is against the laws of Moses. Most Christians are oblivious of the fact that king Abimelec king of Philistines or Palestine made a covenant of peace with Abraham, the full content of the covenant is only known by God. God is a covenant keeping person and that's the reason you cannot erase the Philistines from today Israel. Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaHi Sue, It is funny how we can feel alone in a church and alone out of a church fellowship! Many times the focus of religious groups is on things that do not satisfy or really build true brotherly love and respect for one another. We many times cannot fix what is broke outside of us, but we can learn to not contribute to it by being different ourselves. The best way to not feel lonely and not get sucked in to the whole mess, whether you attend church or are not led to, is to apply 1 John chapters 3 and 4 to everyone, whether inside a church or not. This type of living creates deep meaningful relationships with some and it might wake some up in being jealous of having something they want. The wonderful part of living this way is that it helps you feel closer to YHWH (God, Daddy) which takes away that feeling of loneliness more and more as you go along. I have to admit that sometimes I drop back in to feeling lonely as well. I have had more years of feeling lonely than not (even with friends). But the tides have shifted more and more to feeling more connected and a part of something important as I have focused on loving God by loving my neighbor as myself. When we have PURPOSE to what we are doing and why, it fills that area in us that feels lonely. If we don't fill it with what The Lord tells us to fill it with, then it gets filled with junk like bad feelings, bad habits, or addictions. Well, maybe it only works that way with me and those I have had the privilege of helping out of such ditches? By the way, I am not personally for or against going to a church building. I have seen Daddy lead me to be at some and then nowhere so many times that I have learned to be content in both circumstances. There are really important things to be learned in both situations that I am grateful to have had the opportunity to experience both. Actually, I think I will write on those experiences or make a podcast on it sometime. I have included it on my list of topics to get to in detail. If you have any ideas of what you would like to know on that topic let me know so I can start making notes. Thank you for your note, Sue. I hope you find the connection you are craving to have! Katrina Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaHi Larry, When I read your efforts to write it reminded me of my own struggles in the past with feeling like the hard effort I put in to things did not seem to be appreciated, helpful, or even wanted. Probably most humans struggle with this, some more than others. Even though you did not get the response or the fruits of your labor in the way that would have been satisfying, I know that what you did was amazing because all effort develops something in ourselves. That development can last for eternity whether others benefit from it or know they are benefiting from it. Sometimes we feel inspired to do things that we think should pay off in a certain way, whether financially, prestige, recognition, or something else. Just know that in your effort and practice, it is NEVER wasted, UNLESS you give up dreaming and doing what you feel next to be inspired to do. Sometimes we don't understand how the things that slow us down, make us not be able to perform or attain what others attain, but we keep fighting anyway does anything. For example, we have a special needs son that takes a lot of time and resources. There are so many things that I did not get to do or complete, or was broken because of this son, and another son who decided to be difficult to raise (rewarding but difficult. Lol.). By human standards, I am a mere housewife. The only thing I have going for me is that I don't give up. I just refuse to give up and that has kept me in the classroom that YHWH (God/The Heavenly Daddy) has for me to grow and become like Him through whatever I find I need to do every day. Your life and how to choose to keep going is a testimony that is being made that you will be able to tell for eternity! God does not make mistakes and He sure does not stop the work He has started in each of the children that has chosen to make Him their Father. All you have done and will do will be something valuable to your testimony of God's goodness. Whatever disappointments you have in life does not make YOU a disappointment. God will be glorified even in your testimony if you don't give up or even think your life and its struggles are meaningless. God makes hope out of hopelessness. He fixes the most broken. He is glorified when we believe He is that good. With this in mind, your sour book deals, struggling with Bipolar, your computer not supporting you well, my own circumstances which are humble as well, they all can glorify God and how strong He is to those who CHOOSE to love Him no matter what their circumstances are.-That is the whole point to this physical life and the eternal one we will have through Yeshua's (Christ's) sacrifice for us. I hope this has been an encouragement for you Larry as that was my intention. May Our Daddy bless you even more! Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaIt is very refreshing to see someone interceding and trying to wake up those who slumber, Stephanie. May your watering and planting be blessed with fruit springing up into life! Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaHi Tresa, Yes, Know The Future really makes one have to slow down and pay attention to each word. I think it is great that you have the opportunity to go through it with your mom. I have learned that helping others with hard things blesses me back so much that it is worth the effort and 'trouble'. You will find yourself growing so much from it. May you see some blessings of doing this right away that would encourage you to go all the way through the book with your mom! Prophecy is one wonderful way to understand what YHWH is doing and give you peace of mind on how you fit in to His big picture, which is brilliant once you can see it laid out- Tim's book does a great job of laying it out. The next fictional book we plan on helping it be more easy to understand at least a general knowledge of YHWH's timeline of events, but also what one can do and focus on now to make the most out of this opportunity of having a human life. Many times we are alive and just wonder what we are supposed to be getting out of all of this and what we are supposed to be doing. We are arrested in going forward with anything because we don't understand what to be focusing on. If we do get a clue on what to focus on, many times we have no clue on what to do about what is in front of us. We hope to help give people enough strong clues to get them unstuck and able to grow in grace and knowledge. You can surly pray that we will be effective in this! Many blessings to you! Katrina Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaWelcome Jay to the team! We look forward to your deep questions and growing with you! Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaIt has been such an honor to watch you grow over the years, Linda. Your willingness to not give up on YHWH but push in to Him, even when you are not getting what you want out of life has helped you find more faith and peace and it is so BEAUTIFUL! Your testimony reminds me of Jacob's life. He lost loved ones and understood bereavement. He was a foreigner many times. He took care of a whole tribe of people. He was not even close to perfect but still trusted in YHWH even when things looked like they were not working out very well. His life was a beautiful mess of events, some mess he created, some he inherited, some others created for him, but He decided to still struggle with God and not give up. That is you, Linda. I am honored to be your sister fighting with you! Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaHi Julie, we are excited to have you a part of the team. Yes, the Bible is difficult is hard to understand. I think one of the pitfalls I have been in with the Bible is getting caught up in the details instead of the simplicity of what it is trying to convey. Many times I have thought that understanding the Bible well enough would somehow help me figure out how to find happiness and peace. The Truth is weird when you get it- The Truth is so simple that we gloss over it or don't think it is the most important. It is something that only spiritual children see because it is so simple. That Truth is peace, happiness, and life are found simply in loving YHWH with our whole heart, might, soul, everything we have AND showing we love Him by loving our NEIGHBOR as OURSELVES. The whole Bible is trying to help us understand Our Daddy's love (YHWH) and learn to love like He does for eternity. The hard part is letting go of everything that does not support this simplicity. I hope that we will be able to share in a way that really makes sense how to make this simple Truth really work for each person and how to really apply it to the situations that you face in every day life. Tim and I practice these things and have found that they work. We have also found that we still get exercised very well every day in consciously CHOOSING to put these Truths first in our life with every second. We mess up like anyone else, but we feel and see peace, love, and faith growing in us as we continue forward. YHWH's way works. YHWH's way may not change your circumstances always, but it changes YOU. Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With Katrina...what he said :). Yes, Sam (and everyone else), we are inspired by your posts on what to focus on and develop that encourages us all on to good works. We are really excited to share the things that have helped us and see changes in you, our supporter's lives, and in ourselves as we go forward with this project. Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaThank you for the compliment, Tina. I do like to find things to laugh about. I love laughing about myself and getting others to laugh too. Life is much more fun when you can take yourself a little less seriously and learn to be more forgiving towards yourself. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for inspiring me on a topic to do a post or a podcast on. Complaining is a great topic to cover. Many of us complain in ways that are not direct and therefore hard to see that we are doing it. I have put that down as something for me to work on putting together. Tim and I truly appreciate your support and ideas. Katrina McHyde on How and Why We Moved To GermanyPeople who are gifted and called to work with those who are special needs are truly inspiring to me, like those who like to cook. Actually those who like to cook are harder for me to understand than those who help those with special needs :). But both groups I am thankful for since we need such people in our lives from both camps. That is the fun of YHWH giving diverse gifts to each of His children. We appreciate your sisterhood over all these years Linda and we appreciate the tender heart you have for others that was obviously given to you by Our Daddy. Many blessings to you and your husband! Katrina McHyde on How and Why We Moved To GermanyThank you, Tina, for your prayers and support and ideas. Keep them coming! You never know which ones will actually come to fruition. We have not every thought of putting together a group trip to Israel thus far. We have only been there once way back in 2002. Truly, we are not in any way connected well or know enough about Israel to put together such a group plan. We do have a few friends there, but other than that we don't have a clue what to do there. Actually, we are not much at planning out our trips. If people in an area we are traveling want to get together then we try to work it out, but we usually like to just show up and see what The Lord plans out for us. Many people have a difficult time traveling with us if they have certain expectations, especially when they are spending so much money and want to feel like they are getting value out of their hard earned cash spent. We go to places, looking for opportunities to bless those around us, rest when we need to rest, and if this trip happens, look to be inspired to be in the right places to do a few video podcasts to share with the members here. We have no set plans on our trips as you can see. The way things look right now, we may have to delay our trip by a year, but who knows except Our Daddy in Heaven what will transpire. Whatever it is, it will be wonderful. But hey, if you want to pay for a ticket for me to go, Tim probably would not be able to make it, and meet me there, and we pray as soon as we land for Father to show us and direct us on what He would have us do and learn, then I am all for just letting Him give us the trip He wants us to have and the lessons He wants us to receive. Actually, Tim likes to tease me that I have travel faith- I always say that YHWH always blesses me on my trips. Even when things look really bad or bad things happen, it always turns around for good. The testimonies I am a part of in my trips even makes my mouth drop at seeing God everywhere and at all times during the whole thing. I have plenty of girlfriends I have traveled with that would attest to this 'grace' God gives me on trips. It may be because I have no expectations going in to a trip. I don't try to make anything happen so strictly that I would get disappointed. This way of doing things does not work well with planning a whole group trip with others, unless they were so inspired to let go that much too and be ok with everything that would happen. I will pray that you are led to someone who has a gift at putting together awesome Israel tours that you might be able to plan your trip with! Much blessings to you! Tim McHyde on Jewish Boy Natan’s Near Death Experience: From God or Something Else?DL, Yes that was it. Thank you! I updated the article. DL on Jewish Boy Natan’s Near Death Experience: From God or Something Else?Good article. The verse you couldn't find the reference for, was it Deuteronomy 13:1-3? Tim McHyde on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)Talon, most are lukewarm so you're not alone. But don't count yourself out yet as you have not encountered the prophet Elijah and his unprecedented powerful message of repentance, coming soon: http://escapeallthesethings.com/true-false-prophet Tim McHyde on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Dave, I'm not talking about "testaments" or promises to the patriarchs. I'm referring to the same thing Hebrews does: the "Old Covenant" (made not with Abraham but with Israel at Mt. Sinai through Moses as conditions for them to live in the land) and the "New Covenant" (Heb 8:13) that will be against instituted with the regathered Israel in the Millennium as conditions for them to be in the land. When they were exiled it was because they had clearly run of grace and I believe demonstrably also out of the "curse boomerang" protection as well. In other words, we are between Israel's Promised Land covenants which is why they are still scattered worldwide, mostly lost their identity and on their own (except for extinction protection). If this were not true and God was cursing those who cursed Israel/Judah then Germany would be a goner for what they did to Israel. They would not the greatest country of the EU and one of the greatest in the world. Although that may clear up a misunderstanding of what I said, I don't think it will satisfy you as we have rehashed our differences on "Torah Keeping" many times before online without agreement. God bless you just the same and thanks for commenting. Talon Torres on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)At this point, I am unfortunately too lukewarm. I am not fit for the rapture and will not make it into Heaven... *sigh* Talon Torres on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too LateI know it may not be enough, but should the Antichrist come, I would stand straight up, arms splayed out like the Cross and say, "This is the only God I worship. I worship Him and His Son, no other. You wish to bring this Mark upon me? I would rather die." Either that or, when the "crazy prophet" comes to the door and tells me to leave, I would gladly do so for multiple reasons. Reason 1: God's Command and that I wish to be saved from the Mark before it even comes. Reason 2: Good excuse for exercise. Reason 3: I get to see the world. Dave Kimble on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Tim, when you referred above to the 'old' covenant, are you saying that God put aside His promises to the Patriarchs because of their not keeping it? Since no human walked through the two halves of the sacrifice with God (Gen.15:17) it would seem that God knew that Abraham would not be able to keep his side of it. Still God made it with him, us. Renewed Covenant is very different than new. I remind you that 'Old Testament and New Testament' are man's words, not God's. I believe curses by God, or warnings about them, are still to be taken seriously. I do not believe God ignores those who turn away from what His Word warns us of. Chris Sorber on If You Think A Recent Disaster Was A Judgment or Warning Sign…Dear Tim, just a small typing error in the text here above. You refer to in the chapter "God told me" to 1Th5:2, this should be 1Th5:20. I know "0" is nothing, but I think it is important here. Kind regards and Yehovah's blessing to you, your family and your team. Keep on the good work, Chris Sorber (The Netherlands) Tim McHyde on Know the Future – 8th EditionGlen, Yeah I used to be taught and believe what you're hearing. Later I found the harlot literally fits America. See these articles on who the Harlot is: http://escapeallthesethings.com/60-reasons-iraq-not-mystery-babylon http://escapeallthesethings.com/america-mystery-babylon-great http://escapeallthesethings.com/sign-of-the-end Tim McHyde on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Ron, perhaps you're unaware that when Jesus returns, all nations will have been under the Mark of the Beast for 3.5 years or, if they resist that, beheaded. The few faithful righteous will be lead from their home nations to safety. That means Israel like all nations will be marked and controlled by the Antichrist to fight Jesus. So when it says "EVEN Judah" fights at Jerusalem, it means even they, the one nation who received prophecy of the Messiah and wants him, will fight him at his return! Ron S. on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?A lot of good points here. I do see Zechariah 14:14 different though. Judah is fighting at Jerusalem, not against it, and not fighting Jesus at His return as He will be also fighting for Jerusalem. At that point, I believe Jesus and Judah are both allies against the enemies of Jerusalem. Perhaps you can add some comments about that Tim. Glen on Know the Future – 8th EditionTim, Thank you for your work. I have read commentary that the harlot and daughters in Revelation are the Catholic and Protestant churches that have gotten so far away from the original teachings and practices of the original biblical teachings that they deceive present day believers. Any info sincerely appreciated. -glen Thomas Garza on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?The belief that God is ever diligent to whack somebody for something is most interesting. I used to be one of those who ardently supported such a notion. I needed a belief that reinforced a skewed vision of WHO God actually is according to literal Scriptural sources. My "God" had anger issues. It's not that God isn't interested in Israels well being but rather, that Israel has rarely and consistently been interested in accomplishing/maintaining Gods will. My interpretation was one-sided in that God was eager to reward or punish those who deal with Israel but I lacked a balanced interpretation as I couldn't explain why Israel should be cared for so diligently when I knew from history and Scripture, that Israel did NOT share such a devotion. It was like Israel had a "Golden Parachute" Insurance Policy and although Israel smoked, drank and did harmful things to herself, somehow those sins didn't matter because the coverage was so good. Finally, when forcing myself to READ the sources in strict context, my beliefs began to change. It was difficult but I'd rather be alone and know the TRUTH than to be in a crowd with a " belief ". Gregory Barbato on Does God Curse Those Who Curse Israel Today?Than you, Tim, for not falling prey to people who want to "politicize" our Lord and the word of God. I've known Democrats and Republicans alike who claim to be Christian, but seem to me to be worshiping a false god made in the image that their own biases dictate. I enjoy reading your interpretations of God's Word. Sue W on The Parable of the Ten Virgins RevisitedHi Tim, I'm enjoying re-reading your older articles by following the Recent Comments page. RE: "Will we keep our focus on living our life according to God's standards or will we allow ourselves to get distracted, backslide and default back to following the standards of men (our own included)? " at the end of the article. There are many opinions and beliefs about "God's standards". 10 commandments, Torah, grace and / or love only etc. What do you mean by "God's standards"? Tim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsPrince, I've updated the article with a new subheading under problem #1 to explain why there is "revelation" on both the past and the future in the Book of "Revelation." Also see a new conclusion paragraph linking to the article explaining the Rev 12 prophecy. Prince on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsDear Tim, Also seeking clarification. What I don't follow is why God will show John a vision of the first coming/birth of Christ in Revelation 12. When the book is all about things that are about to happen. I also don't get your view on Rev 12. Can you expose and not only refute? God Bless. Prince Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Sarah, We can all say that, because it was in love, but didn't his hard statements confound or trouble you?

Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)G-Man the same thing happens to the church in the Tribulation (wrath of Satan) before the rapture that happened to Israel in the land of Goshen during the 10 plagues (wrath of God) before they were taken out: protection is available by God anywhere anytime on earth as Shadrach Meshach and Abednego knew and proved: http://escapeallthesethings.com/faith-to-escape-tribulation G-Man on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Hello Tim, If the rapture happens after the great tribulation what happens to the church? We will not take the mark of the beast so we can't eat, pay bills, no home. Then we will have to live in the streets and all die before a rapture.

Nicholas David Bean on 616 vs. 666: Which Is the Real Number of the Beast?I was doing some things lately then something in front of me happened, I saw the number 666 then I tried to remove it by using up some points on the thing then it turned to 616. What could this mean? I saw this at exactly 12:30AM Tim McHyde on Is Trump “Cyrus” – His Election a “Miracle of God”?Crewe, You seem to be equating the concept "established" with "selected" or "voted in". I believe if you think this through you'll quickly see that does not work and is not what it's saying. That God wants us to submit to authority left on earth by him is the point because it is good practice for our submission to him that is required for salvation. What it is not saying is that all democratic elections are rigged by God and farce or illusion. That would be tantamount to saying we don't actually have free-will but God's establishing all our choices because of that other verse which says God had 'predestined us to be saved." But that verse is not what saying that either. I think Paul is saying all authority exists by God's design and under his authority and it's pleasing to him that we submit to it. Tim McHyde on Know the Future – 8th EditionMerle, What you're reporting is common and I hear it from readers a lot. The more they learn from people like me, the more they find out things they've been taught is wrong and also conflicting information. It's enough to make your head spin if not give up in frustration. I can only tell you if you keep at it it does start to make sense and get easier. I can also share this promise about truth seeking from Jesus: Mt 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye. shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh. findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. I can tell you that's 100% true if you keep going in faith. I agree with everything else you said and am impressed at how far you've gotten in your truth seeking. Yes even America being Ephraim and the UK being Manasseh, the two who the huge material birthright promise of Joseph went to. God intended this so there would be a force for good in the world to oppose evil for a time and also allow the Bible truth to get out like no other country does in the end time. I apologize some of my information is over your head for now, but again, this will change if you keep at it. Don't hesitate to ask me when things are unclear. I have the time still, although this will change in coming years. Take advantage of me now. Tim Merle Hester on Know the Future – 8th EditionTim, I hate to say this, but the more I read, and seek out the truth, the more confused I become. As I told you before, I am a firm believer that the church will be here during at least the first half of the 7 yr trib. Well as of now there is maybe 3 of my church family that questions if we might have to go through it. The whole church world is planning on Jesus loving us so much we will not have to go through any of it.....I have no doubts.....on that........One more thing I have read tonight from your writings is America is Mystery Babylon.......or that is what I got from what I was reading.......I do believe we are the babylon the whore and the symbol to prove that is the woman with the bowl in her hand, which is the Statue of Liberty.......I am firm on Damascus being destroyed at the beginning of our troubles.. Also, I have always believed Russia would be the one to attack America and destroy it as Russia is north of Israel and Jeresulem.....Also the church world that I am a member in believes we are all going to a mansion in the heavens to live forever.......Ok from what I get, yes we will escape the end battle with Jesus but I am a believer that we true Christians after all the destruction, etc and Jesus takes over his reign we will have a new heaven and a new earth......My belief is that we will live with Jesus on this new earth....Am I wrong in that.......I have not studied prophecy like you have but I have sought God for wisdom and knowledge. I believe America and Great Britian was the two great lands of milk and honey God promised to Abrahams ancestors and these two was passed down to Josepth two sons, Manessa and Epherium.........am I wrong there also......I love receiving all your msg but some of it is so deep I can't get it when I am going against all my friends believe. Just help me see if I am somewhat right in my heading here......Thank you and God bless you and your wife in helping us that is truly seekiing God for the honest answers . Merle Crewe on Is Trump “Cyrus” – His Election a “Miracle of God”?What about Romans 13:1 which states that the authorities that exist have been established by God Tim McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaDavid, Yes! I was thinking of doing that but was not sure for exactly that reason...would it be too out of place or unwanted by most. I like the idea because it emphasizes that, although this is a story, it's based on actual literal prophecy. Perhaps we do end notes instead of footnotes? David on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaTim, Will you be including footnotes referring to scripture supporting events within the narrative? I can not remember if Left Behind did anything like that. Richard Nevin on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Tim, yes, of course you're right, we'll only temporarily leave this planet for the marriage feast of the Lamb, and then return in glorified bodies. And yes, we're agreed that 2030 is looking very possible. To be honest, based on the 7 millennia of human history concept, it would be very surprising if God planned it on any other year. For example, if Yeshua returned on 2037, then that would be 2007 years since He left earth and if He returned on 2044, that would be 2014 years since He left earth, and so on and so on. What I mean is, God seems to work in rounded numbers, for example, there is coming the 1000 year reign of Christ, not the 1007 year reign of Christ. Surely this points conclusively in the direction of 2030? One other thing. Can you clarify whether it will be all believers of all times who will reign with Christ during the 1000 years, or just those who still on earth when Yeshua returns, plus those martyred during the tribulation period? Tim McHyde on Is America Mystery Babylon the Great? Six Objections AnsweredJoe, They have no kingdom at the time of the prophecy and the prophecy says this because it is only with the Antichrist coming to power with their help that they get to rule under him in front at last. They are the minions under Satan who pull the strings of the kings of the world but are not kings themselves. See my http://escapeallthesethings.com/bible-prophecy-glossary for more. joe gooden on Is America Mystery Babylon the Great? Six Objections AnsweredHi Tim. Thanks for the clear insight. I often wonder if you can tell when the ten kings shall destroy Babylon from verses in Revelation. Revelation says ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom. Does this verse mean they have no kingdom when they destroy Babylon? Or just that they had no kingdom when Revelation was written? Thank you and God bless your ministry. Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Richard, Yes, there are lots of sevens in the Bible. 2030 is looking very possible. Time will tell. But we will still be on the planet when Yeshua comes. Just in glorified bodies of spirit =). Tim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsPastor Rich, http://escapeallthesethings.com/judah-ben-samuel-prophecy/ Pastor Rich on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsTim, I am new to your site and have been looking closely at Rev. 12 and 23-Sept/17 as well. Have you done any level of research into a Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel, stated as a 12th Century writer from Regensberg, Germany? Some writers suggest a connection of the two. With thanks, PR Richard Nevin on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Tim, I agree with all you have written wholeheartedly. Just an interesting observation for you. When you read through the Bible, you can see God working in certain patterns. Take the story of Joseph. Through a dream God showed Pharaoh that there would be be 7 years of harvest, followed by by 7 years of famine. Now we know there will be a final 7 year period before Jesus returns, so could it be that there will be a 7 year period of harvesting souls, the likes of which the world has never seen before, followed by a 7 year period of great distress, the likes of which the world has never seen before, when evangelism will be incredibly difficult? If so, then potentially, and I mean potentially here, 2017 -2023 could be the most explosive time for evangelism the world has ever seen, and 2024 - 2030, could be the tribulation. And wouldn't it be fitting if Jesus did return in 2030, as this would be more or less exactly 2000 years after leaving this earth? If so, we've only got 14 years left on this planet. Sue W on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Great start to the article, Tim, and thanks for your testimony of having difficulty with Jesus' hard words. I have done quite a bit of skimming over difficult scripture. Your perspective is helping me to stop, take a breath and consider all things literally, in context, especially with regard to audience. I have no doubt that part 2 will help open my eyes and develop techniques for greater understanding. God bless you both with a great measure of His spirit. time on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Thanks for the reply Tim. Pleased to hear you agree, as it is not a stance you hear followers of Christ take often. In fact, that website and your reply now are the only two instances I have ever come across it. Mistranslations (or misinterpretations) of the original text certainly spread many incorrect teachings. Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Tim, Yes, Yeshua said if you "lust after a woman then you have already committed adultery[not fornication] in your heart." Adultery requires that either she or you are married. It's not about sex outside marriage or so-called "fornication" but someone violating the marriage bond which is the defintion of adultery. The realm of errors of Christianity also includes its extra-biblical definition of sexual sin. They paint with too broad of a brush. Tim Luther Borrow on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua (Part 1)Nice work Tim. Reminds me of all the little tests women put us blokes through before they choose to accept us as their partner. It's a challenge, but best not to give up! On the matter of adultery which you briefly touched on, there used to be an interesting website which suggested the modern definition is based on mis-translations from the Hebrew (Old Testament) and Greek (New Testament), and that cheating, as opposed to sex outside of marriage, is the sin. http://counterfeitsin.tumblr.com/ Very unfortunately that website has been taken down, so you can't view the research on it, but I'll be interested to read your findings. It could be tricky research given ingrained modern beliefs, and that many different English terms are used for various sexual acts ('knew' 'came in unto', 'adultery', 'fornication', 'covetousness' 'uncleanness' 'lasciviousness' etc...), but if that article was correct and some translations are false, than no wonder Yeshua's Sermon can be difficult to grasp! Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Hendrik, I wholeheartedly agree with you most don't understand the timing of Jesus' return. But there's only 10 days between the rapture and the takeover of the world's kingdoms after the 10 day wrath of God finishes: Read this for more. Hendrik Coetzee on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Tim, Maybe the timing of His coming is more difficult than most think. His coming to Jerusalem will be observed and announced and most possible from a place on earth. His coming with no observation when He come to start His mustard seed Kingdom will be unobserved and not announced and could be quite a number of years before the coming to Jerusalem. The coming without observation is a grey area where timing is concerned. Thanks.
