Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2021—But 2020 Began The Last Decade

Can Jesus come back this year or are certain events missing before any end-time prophecies can occur including the rapture?

"What's Prophesied For 2021?"

It happens early every January: a spike in visitors to my website. At the prospect of a new year, "many go to and fro" (i.e., searching "to increase knowledge") on the Internet (Dan 12:4) looking for predictions. With all the prophecies in the Bible, Christians wonder if some of them are about to be fulfilled. The perennial favorites among them are the Second Coming of Christ and the Rapture.

A large percentage of Christians continue to think every year that "this could be the year that Christ returns..." or "...that the Rapture happens." That's not just my opinion as someone who has run a prophecy website since 1999. An Ipsos poll asking how likely certain events were to happen in the coming year confirmed this. According to the poll, here's what percentage of different subgroups of Christians thought it was at least "somewhat likely that Jesus Christ would return to earth in the next year."

  • 46% of white evangelical Christians
  • 34% of Protestants
  • 17% of Catholics
  • 10% of the non-religious

(Note: The phrase "return to earth" used by the pollsters is an unfortunately vague term. It best fits the Second Coming, yet to those surveyed it could have been understood as the Rapture. Nevertheless, as the article will show, it does not matter which one is referred to.)

Why the Poll Results Blindsided Me

When I heard the results of that poll back in December 2006, I was surprised. I had not been expecting so many Christians to think it was still possible for Jesus to come in the next twelve months. Here are two reasons why it blindsided me back then fourteen years ago:

  1. Even before 2006, there have been many years of failed expectations for Christ's coming ("Y2K"/2000 being the biggest one up till then). Pretty much every year since Christ left, people have been hoping or predicting he would return with no show. Why would anyone expect it imminently anymore after so many failed hopes?
  2. Back in 2006, I assumed that more Christians were aware of some basics of prophecy as I had known since my teens. For example, Paul wrote that Jesus cannot return to gather us to him until the "man of sin" (Antichrist) takes over "first" (2Th 2:2-4). Certainly, I thought, most Christians know that this "Great Tribulation" of the Antichrist they heard of must arrive before the Second Coming? Not so...

In other words, I was a bit naive =). The poll helped to fix that by learning how blessed I was to be exposed to the history of rapture predictions and key NT verses about Christ's return. I had been in a bubble, in a way, as a person who has studied prophecy and helped those also interested in the topic away from the greater Christian audience who mostly never receive any teaching on prophecy. In fact, I would say most Christians have never even read Revelation because it frightens them. Finally, while I hear about every popular prophecy prediction each year from readers who ask my opinion on them, most Christians hear nothing of them except when they go up on billboards across America as Harold Camping did in 2011.

My Response to the Poll?

After better understanding this Christian blind spot on end-time prophecy, I wrote an article to help. It was the first version of this article called "Why Jesus Can't Come Back in 2007." The title was designed to get people to stop and pay attention. In it, I explained why it was impossible for Jesus to come back in 2007 based on what Bible prophecy literally says. I covered the many missing prophetic events that have to come before not just the Second Coming, but also the Rapture (see below for the list).

Most readers thanked me for shedding needed light on this confusing subject, but some were miffed. For example:

  • "Aren't you claiming to know the day or hour that Jesus said we can't?"
  • "How dare you claim to know such a thing, as if you're God?"
  • "You're a terrible person for saying this and dashing people's hopes." (People hate buzzkills!)

I learned from all that, too, something that I notice most of my readers have not picked up on about their church peers yet: not everyone delights in the truth. Paul explained this in his warning about why people get deceived by the Antichrist in the end time:

2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 — 9 The coming of the lawless one [Antichrist] will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, 10 and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. 11 For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie [that the Antichrist is God - 2Th 2:4].

In the past few years, I've become convinced that "those who are perishing" refers to not just non-Christians but also Christians, "few" of whom are saved according to Jesus' warning  This happens because Satan deceives the whole world (Rev 12:9) including Christians (Mt 24:4-5), most of whom want to be left in their comforting reassurance of salvation rather than investigate Revelation's warning about deception (had they read it). If you burst someone's bubble, they may become very "unchristian-like" on you, just as Jesus warned about truth-telling (Mt 7:6).

If you have "received a love for the truth" that is above your desire for reassurance and acceptance (which truth-loving and -seeking will cost you), then read on to learn what most Christians are misunderstanding about end-time prophecy...

My Track Record of Proclaiming "The end is not yet" (Lk 21:9) and the Legal Requirements Behind That

Nothing prophetic happened in 2007 just as my article argued from Scripture. It was not much of a gamble to publish that claim. The numerous prerequisite events (listed below) could not have possibly been completed in such a short time. It was as safe as stating that the moon will not descend to earth. Just as it would take some major new force or event for the moon to descend, likewise Jesus is not descending here until certain unprecedented events happen. The requirements for both events were and are simply still not present.

As history consistently shows, the real gamble is stating when Jesus will come back or the year of the fulfillment of any other Biblical prophecy, for that matter—unless you have a prophetic revelation from God on that, like the Biblical prophets were known to receive. (When it's not speculation or Bible interpretation but the Word of God then it's not a gamble.)

After that year passed, I updated this article and went on record again for the next year, 2008. I knew that Christians would again expect or predict the Second Coming for that year. I also knew that just as with 2007, the requirements were not present and it would not and did not happen. Every year since then I have updated this article to let people know that the requirements for Jesus to come back that year are simply not present:

  1. 2007...
  2. 2008...
  3. 2009...
  4. 2010...
  5. 2011...
  6. 2012...
  7. 2013...
  8. 2014...
  9. 2015...
  10. 20 16...
  11. 2017...
  12. 2018...
  13. 2019...
  14. 2020...

That's fourteen years so far of going out on record that Jesus will not come back in the next year.

Why point this out? Am I just "tooting my own horn?" Wasn't I just lucky?

No. Really I point to my track record to help people who are looking for a different approach and answer in this area than is typical of prophecy researchers out there. The vast majority of prophecy experts either:

  1. Make "invented prophecy" predictions that always fail (because they are invented, or read into one or more verses) whether they are specific or vague ("something big will happen")...
  2. ...or claim we don't have enough information to know if Jesus is coming in the next year or not. These views keep the church in alternatively fear and anxiety or confusion and ignorance.

In contrast, I have consistently gone on record that popular predictions won't happen and I have shown how we can at least rule out Jesus' coming in certain years, especially in the short term. For people trying to find someone worth listening to on prophecy, a distinction like this is very helpful to note.

"Depart From Me, I Never Knew you!" - Jesus

Jesus predicted that he will tell many sincere believers to basically "get lost" instead of welcoming them into the Kingdom. So...who are they and what did they miss or do wrong? In this study, get those answers and the one requirement for salvation Jesus taught (that Christianity misses) so that you can make sure you don't hear these dreaded words yourself!

The Secret to My Good Track Record Helps You, Too

What's my secret? And how can knowing it help you avoid being confused or troubled by the invented prophecy predictions made every year about the Second Coming and other prophecies?

My secret is recognizing the many major events listed in prophecy that must come before Jesus "returns to earth."

If you recognize these prerequisite events in your own Bible, too, you will be far ahead of most prophecy researchers in terms of discernment. More importantly, you won't fall for their predictions anymore.

Why are these prerequisite events not common knowledge? Because most Christians are taught to believe in the "pretrib rapture" doctrine and the related doctrine of "imminency." This imminency doctrine states that the "pretrib rapture can come at any moment without any prerequisite event." Just as the pretrib rapture is false and unscriptural, so is the imminency teaching used to justify it.

It's false because there is no plain verse saying that "Jesus can come back at any moment" or "without any prerequisite." Instead, this theory relies on verses saying other things that perhaps could be "because the Second Coming is imminent." For example, Jesus said "always be ready" (Lk 12:40). Did he say that because he can come any second (again, not stated elsewhere in the Bible)...or because when you backslide you can become deceived with the "strong delusion" (2Th 2:11) and miss or misunderstand the signs of Jesus' coming (1Th 5:4-5) as the religious Jews did before (clearly taught throughout Jesus' parables)?

If "imminency" is not biblical, then how can it be so popular? Two reasons:

  1. Few Christians are Bible experts able to discern whether a doctrine they hear from other Christians is really taught by the Bible or not.
  2. Further, this doctrine is telling them exactly what they want to hear, so they are not looking to disprove it. As alluded to earlier, Christians naturally hope that Jesus will come back soon for many reasons. At the very least they are fed up with this evil world and look forward to him cleaning it up. The idea that "Jesus can come at any moment" or any year sounds wonderful and comforting. Remember, most Christians prefer comfort to inconvenient truth when push comes to shove.

Despite supposed imminency, here we are nearly 2000 years after Jesus left without his return. Isn't it time to move on from the dubious doctrine of imminency (along with the pretrib rapture)?

If Jesus' coming was really "imminent" for every single one of over 1,990 years since he left in 30 AD, why has he not shown up?

The Bible Reveals a Full Roadmap of Future Events

Why Jesus has not come back yet is not commonly understood.

In simple terms, contrary to what most Christians believe and are taught, Jesus said that there are indeed prerequisites to his return and the start of his reign in the Millennium. Until these preliminary events happen, he said that the "end is not yet/by and by" (Mt 24:6; Lk 21:9) and he will not be appearing. He cannot come until the end does and the end is not here yet.

Where do I get all this? Straight from the Bible as read plainly at face value (John 10:35). It is hard to read it that way until you put any preconceptions (and emotionally-charged hopes) aside. Once you do, this literal approach unlocks a sequence of future events described in the key prophecies of Revelation, Daniel, and Jesus (in Mt 24). Put together properly, these prophecies draw a roadmap revealing what we are to expect to happen as God's servants (Rev 1:1).

Unfortunately, it is not easy to do this. Many Bible prophecies are labeled difficult "mysteries" (Rev 10:7; 17:5, 7) or call for "understanding" and "wisdom" (Dan 12:10; Mt 24:15; Rev 13:18). As such, it is like putting together a large jigsaw puzzle—a puzzle where you have to scavenge for and identify the pieces first if you will. The pieces to this puzzle are not all conveniently in one place and in order but are scattered throughout several books of both the Old and New Testament.

Similar to working with a real jigsaw puzzle, if you have one piece out of place, it can stop you from completing the puzzle to see the picture that it was intended to reveal. The surer you are about that out-of-place piece being right, the more blocked you will be. For example, having the Rapture in the wrong place (before the Great Tribulation) in the sequence of events effectively blocks understanding of end-time prophecy.

If you get past those obstacles to assembling the end time prophecy puzzle pieces, the picture emerges that there is much more than just the Great Tribulation, Rapture, and Second Coming ahead (which is what sums up the eschatology of most Christians). There are more events ahead than Christians have imagined. Importantly, most of these unknown prophetic events precede the Second Coming. That means the Second Coming or the Rapture are not "next" or "imminent."

In other words, if Jesus' return to earth is "Event C," then it cannot come until "Event B" has already happened. Likewise, "Event B" will not be seen unless "Event A" has already been fulfilled. It's really that simple:

Event A → Event B → Event C / Jesus

Prerequisite Prophecy Event 1 → PPE 2 → ... → Second Coming

Potential vs. Impossible Years of Jesus' Return

Now, if hypothetical Event A has not happened, this means that the end has not even begun.

But does that mean we cannot have any clue at all as to when the end is or when the end is not? Thankfully, no.

Although the exact timing of Jesus' Second Coming has been unknown to the general public just as Jesus said in Matthew 24:36 "no man knows the day or hour" (read: exact time), that does not mean that the general public will never know the exact time even after nearly two millennia have passed. Nor does it preclude a few with the wisdom of God from knowing the timing before the general public does! Jesus never said, "no man WILL EVER know."

Even before then, you can be sure that the end is "not yet" (Mt 24:6; Mk 13:7) without knowing absolutely when it will be yet. We can do this by working from the relatively few potential years of his return to rule out the many years when he cannot come. The potential years come from the many timing clues given in the end-time prophecies.

Leap Years Analogy

This is similar to how we can know what years are not leap years and which are. A leap year is almost always every fourth year, in the years divisible by four—but not divisible by 100 unless also divisible by 400. This means, for example, that 2096 and 2104 will be leap years but not 2100.

With similar use of rules-based logic, we can know what years Jesus cannot return ahead of time. As long as the end times and Revelation roadmap have not begun, this fact itself continually rules out the next several years from Jesus' appearing. This is because the missing prerequisite events on the roadmap take substantial time to play out, several years, in fact.

This describes exactly the situation we have been in ever since the New Testament was written, in a holding pattern waiting for the first end-time event. Unmistakably, therefore "the end is not yet." (Note that other prophecies not related to the final seven years have been fulfilled, such as the resurgence of Israel in 1948 per Isaiah 11:10-12 and also the fulfillment of Paul's "last days people" prophecy here in the last decade)

If the Body of Christ had understood Jesus' words on the preconditions of his coming, they would not be pronouncing or expecting the Rapture or imminent return of Jesus every year, just the same as we would not pronounce a new US president every single year. Because few believers have understood these overlooked prerequisites, each generation has naturally maintained hope that perhaps they were already in the end times and that Jesus could come back at any moment. Yet this has been proven to be false hope.

Then what typically happens is that we justify this belief through other misread prophecies. For example, some might see a world figure who seems to fit the Antichrist (like Emperor Nero) or a technological development that seems to fulfill the mark of the beast (like bar codes or bio-chips) and conclude that it is a sign that the time must be near or in their lifetime. That kind of reasoning has been used innumerable times and always resulted in disappointment. It is important to put aside these pseudo-signs and look only to the real milestones listed in the Bible if you want to correctly know when there really is something prophetic coming to worry about.

Given the fact that none of the prerequisite end-time events have transpired, it is safe to say that it is impossible for Jesus to come in 2021—or any year this decade of the 2020s!

List of Prerequisites to Jesus' Return

So, what are these prerequisite events? Here are several examples from my book starting with the first event to come:

  1. Psalm 83/Isaiah 17 War - Damascus Destroyed/Second Holocaust — Rather than the Rapture, the next event in prophecy is a swift nuclear war in the Middle East between Israel and many of her Arab/Islamic neighbors. You do not need a Bible to tell you this, as many secular sources fear one due to the tensions between Israel and the Arabs and Iran (not Arab, but Persian). The concern over Iran's uranium enrichment program has only added to this. The outcome of this war will be the destruction of Damascus (Isa 17:1) and several other major Arab cities and regions, along with enough devastation in Israel to classify it a second holocaust! Obviously, this event has still not happened because Damascus remains a city to this day (whether you consider it "in ruins" by your First World nation standards or not :-). If you are wondering when this will happen, God gave me dreams that lead me to conclude the year 2022.
  2. The Sixth Seal/Wormwood — If you read Revelation 6:12-17 carefully you will see that it depicts the entire world panicking and running for cover in response to signs in the heavens and a tremendous global earthquake on earth that shakes every mountain and island out of place. It is obvious that a global cataclysm like this has not happened since the first century when this prophecy was written. This event is a "sign of the end" that Jesus told his followers to expect when they asked about his return (Mt 24:7-8=Lk 21:10-11=Joel 2:30-32=Rev 6:12-17). God's end-time escape instructions shared by Jesus, Joel, and Revelation would then become relevant for the faithful. (By the way, ignore anyone saying they have pictures of Wormwood since it is not here yet.)
  3. Third TempleSeveral passages describe a Third Temple on the Temple Mount with sacrifices going during the Great Tribulation (Rev 11:1-2; Mt 24:15; 2Th 2:3-4). The Antichrist is even going to sit in this end-time temple as part of his declaration of himself as God (2Th 2:4). Obviously, there is as yet still no temple or even a construction project underway for one, nor sacrifices yet. Speaking of the construction, some say that everything is already being prepared for this temple and it can go up fast, in less than a year. Even if that's true, under the current political situation they still could not break ground on the Temple Mount without the Arabs approval given their historic belligerence against any Jewish worship on the Temple Mount. The Arab control and power need to be broken first, and that is not going to happen without a war, probably the future Psalm 83 war as above.
  4. The Abomination of Desolation — The Great Tribulation starts 30 days (as in the 1290 - 1260 days) after the Abomination of Desolation is "stood" up at the Temple Mount (Mk 13:14). The abomination refers to the Image of the Beast statue being erected for worship (Rev 13:14). At the same time, the Third Temple sacrifices are halted by the Antichrist. This is another unfulfilled prophecy as only the Antichrist can accomplish this and he is not here yet.
  5. Great Tribulation — This is the most obvious and well-known end-time event. According to Daniel 9:27 = Matthew 24:21, Jesus must return after a period of "Great Tribulation." During this Great Tribulation, the Antichrist will rule over the world for 42 months (Rev 13). He will force all the unsaved (Rev 13:8) to take a mark in their right hand or forehead during that time. Plainly, we are not in the Great Tribulation and no mark of the beast has been issued yet.
  6. The RaptureThe Rapture comes after the Great Tribulation or post-trib, yet not to save anyone from any threat on earth as Christians suppose. The Rapture arrives right on time for the faithful to be "rewarded" (Rev 11:18) with glorified eternal bodies (1Co 15:52) so they can then rule for the entire 1000 year Millennium along with those in the first resurrection (Rev 20:4-5). (But you have to qualify for the Rapture by listening to what Jesus said to do.)
  7. The Wrath of God/7 BowlsThe seven bowls of God's wrath immediately fall when the faithful leave temporarily to heaven (Rev 15:5-8) apparently for the marriage supper of the lamb (Rev 19:9), just as Jesus described in saying it would be just like as in the days of Noah and Lot when one is taken (the righteous) and one is left (the wicked).
  8. The Second Coming — Finally, Jesus "returns to earth" on Yom Kippur/The Day of the LORD to fight the Battle of Armageddon (Rev 19:11-21). He brings back with him the raptured and resurrected saints from the marriage supper of the lamb (Rev 19:9) in Heaven (Rev 15:5-8). Then they/we reign for the Millennium on earth—not in heaven.

These are only some of the events from the full end time roadmap as covered in my comprehensive book:

Nevertheless, the above list does include the "Event A" from my earlier explanation: the Psalm 83 War. Until we see that event, the end time roadmap/final seven years has not begun. This has meant in the past that we could still have years or even a decade (or two?) before the end times events start and finish with Jesus' return. Since the events of 2020, I feel we are definitely under a decade now until Jesus' return. For sure, as long as the Damascus war and destruction are unfulfilled, we have a good minimum of seven years before Jesus can come back, which is the length of the 70th Week of Daniel time frame in which all but one of the events above must take place.

The Prophetic "Sabbath Years" Narrow It Down Even Further

Usually, you can rule out Jesus' coming even more than seven years in advance.

How? Through the special insight that Jesus can only return in one out of every seven years: a Sabbath year. The Sabbath year commanded to ancient Israel not only gave them a blessing of a year of rest from planting their fields with the associated promise of bounty in the sixth year before that. It also was prophetic like all the Torah (Mt 5:17-18). That means it had an end-time meaning and fulfillment.

The fulfillment of the Sabbath year is that it pictures the Millennium peace and rest, the 1000-year period that begins with Jesus' return. Just as the ancient Israelites rested their fields and experienced God's blessing, provision, and peace in that year, so will the entire earth during the Millennium (and after).

Putting this together, it means that the final seven years or 70th week of Daniel (Dan 9:27) are aligned on a Sabbath year cycle or a "week of years" (Dan 9:26). This cycle consists of six regular years followed by a special Sabbath year. Jesus returns in that final Sabbath year of the 70th Week, whenever that is. It's impossible for him to return during one of the six non-Sabbath years. This rules out six out of seven years on the calendar, right off the bat!

For example, here in 2021, we are in the Sabbath year cycle of 2017-2024. Because of the missing events listed above, it's impossible for this cycle to be the one Jesus returns in. That rules out the entire period from 2017-2024 and makes the next period the first possible after that (2024-2030). This means Jesus cannot return from 2021-2029.

2030 is the next possible Sabbath year for Jesus' return.

For more on why the 70 Weeks are aligned on Sabbath year cycles, see my free study on that.

2026 - Why I'm Convinced It's the Year the End Starts

If 2030 is the year Jesus returns, then the 70th week spans 2024-2030, ending in the fall 6 months before the Sabbath year completes in spring, 2031 because "he cuts short the time" (Mt 24:22). But that does not mean the bad stuff or "beginning of sorrows" starts in 2024. It actually would begin in 2026.

2026 is not too far off which is why I'm sad to report that the closer we get to it, the more confirmation keeps falling into my lap about it, despite my not wanting it to be true. For example, I already have had several dreams and developments in my own life that led me to share publicly why I am convinced the end begins in 2026.

Then in 2017, when Trump announced the decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, God gave me a dream. I never asked for confirmation about 2026 for obvious reasons, but it came anyway in a remarkable fashion: a dream in three separate interrupted sleep segments. That morning I released my article on how God had confirmed through the dream that Trump's provocative announcement was prophetic and leading to the nuclear Middle East war. It was very angering to the Muslims with immediate demonstrations and followed by calls to make a bigger Arab alliance against Israel. Many others have written me since then to say they also heard from God that Trump's announcement was a move towards end-time prophecy. But time will tell on that and whether I understood my dream properly (1Co 14:26, 29).

Further confirmation came in early 2019. If asked I would have told you that no end-time prophecy had been fulfilled so far until Damascus is gone. But I would have been wrong. I was overlooking Paul's "last days people" prophecy (2Ti 3:1-3) which I could never understand and ignored for 20 years. An inspiration struck me that finally demystified it and I wrote a major article explaining how a seductive recent technology has brought out the worst in people in all 19 ways Paul predicted!

New: How COVID-19 Confirms No More Delay

2020's events are the greatest confirmation so far that the end is now due this decade. This is ironic because, as I've shared previously, I did not see this early downturn of civilization coming. There is no pandemic in Bible prophecy before the pestilence Jesus spoke of that is associated with Wormwood's global devastation (the earthquakes, famine, pestilence of Lk 21:11). Did it just happen naturally and by chance, now, as scientists conclude? Or was COVID-19 part of God's plan for humanity, just as Wormwood is? I see a pattern in this event that makes me conclude the latter.

In hindsight, something akin to 2020's lockdowns, restrictions, economic devastation, and isolation had to happen. The pandemic has provided what Jesus told this generation to pray for: "gold refined in the fire" of trials bad enough to bring us to the breaking point (Rev 3:18). This is Jesus' prescription for the illness of spiritual poverty, nakedness, and blindness that characterize "Laodiceans" like us who have lived rich, sensual, comfortable lives in the modern world. When Jesus said that it was hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom, this is why (Mt 19:23). We do not need God nor do we get sufficiently humbled and aligned with love when life is working for us pretty well as is.

Jesus 3 Tests of Whether You Are Saved

I hate to break it to you, but if you live in the developed world, you qualify as rich by the standard of Jesus' day. What he said about the rich not entering the kingdom applies to youOdds are that you are not yet saved or headed to the kingdom. You may believe in God and want to serve him but belief and intention are not enough according to Jesus' own words demanding we bear fruit of a radically changed life. Here are three requirements found in Jesus' words to determine whether you are saved:

  1. Are you "as humble as a child" (Mt 18:3-4)?
  2. Does your "righteousness exceed that of the Scribes and Pharisees" who were zealous for God, too (Mt 5:20)?
  3. Is your life philosophy to love others for God (Mt 7:12=Mt 7:21) so you bear fruit and don't hear "depart from me I never knew you" (Mt 7:23)?

If not, don't feel ashamed to admit it. Christianity did not teach us or disciple us in these things like Jesus did with his followers. God is really the only teacher for making us ready for the kingdom. You need that gold refined in the fire to become the bride of Christ who God protects in the end. That is why COVID-19 happened now and why I'm so convinced it is confirmation that the end is about to begin. The bride is getting the "makeover" that she needs through this disruption to life as we are used to it.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, I have witnessed this refining process in my life, my household, and the saints I fellowship with. I have heard testimonies from several readers about God also leading their lives into hard times that brought them closer to him than ever. Without COVID-19 or something like it, we would mostly be stuck poor, naked, and blind spiritually, lacking the faith and trust in God to be able to escape all these things. To see COVID-19 as necessary for us and part of God's loving plan for us makes acceptance of and submission to our new reality easier. The next step is to then ask God what he has for you to learn in this with the time we have left before the end begins.

To summarize, while I'm happy to say that the end can't come this year or even the next few years, sadly developments like COVID-19 have convinced me that the end is starting this decade, probably in 2026 :-(.

Common Objections To Hearing Jesus Can't Come Back

To state that Jesus is not coming this year (even without ruling out the rest of the decade, too) may sound plain wrong or at least arrogant to many. Most don't realize Jesus himself said "the end is not yet" and gave the conditions for discerning that ourselves (Mt 24:6; Lk 21:9). To help you see the truth of what Jesus plainly said about not expecting his return until "the end" conditions arrive, here are a few of the common objections I hear with my responses:

Objection #1: "The world is falling apart too fast to last as long as you say..."

People often point to the multiplying and worsening problems in the world as proof that "the end is nigh"...(for sure this time!). However, if you study history, every generation has been able to point to something getting worse as proof that they were the "last generation" yet here we are. Relative and subjective arguments like that don't compare to the absolute specific description Jesus gave of the end-time sign.

Objection #2: "Jesus comes as a thief in the night, by surprise, so you won't have any clue as to years..."

There are verses implying that Jesus will come suddenly and unexpectedly like a "thief in the night" (1Th 5:2; 2Pe 3:10). However, if you check out the passages in their context you will find that this thief-like surprise applies to the world and not to the "sons of light and sons of the day" (1Th 5:4)! God's children have "a more sure word of prophecy" about the circumstances of the coming of Jesus, a few of which this article has shared above. If Christians keep them in mind, they will not find that Jesus' coming surprises them like the world (1Th 5:4).

Objection #3: "You're claiming to know the day or hour!"

Some always argue that my proclamation about 2021 contradicts "no man knows the day or the hour" (Mt 24:36). This seems valid at first until you understand what was covered already above about Jesus' statement not meaning we were forever prohibited from knowing. The public will know when the end is close, once it is. Also, a prohibition on knowing when something will happen does not mean you don't have enough clues to know certain times when it cannot possibly happen.

For example, say a friend tells you he will drop by on one of his days off to catch up, but he does not tell you which one. You don't know the "day or hour" (which means "time") of his coming. Yet say you know his day off from work is Saturday. Would you sit there on Sunday or Monday hoping or believing he might just come "today?" Or would you know he can't be coming that day for a major visit like he promised? The answer is obvious.

It is the same with Jesus' Second Coming. Although the absolute timing of his coming is not publicly known, we still can know many years when he cannot come according to his own words. Jesus' coming has conditions and circumstances to it that mean he cannot come just any random time even if we don't know the-one-and-only-time he will come.

Objection #4: "You're effectively telling Christians to relax and not be ready for the return. (Shame on you!)"

Others complain that to say "Jesus is not coming this year" translates to saying people don't have to be alert, pray and stay close to God (Lk 21:36). However, knowing Jesus cannot come back soon does not change anything about needing to "always be ready" and not backslide into sin.

Also, we all are still mortal. We can lose our life tomorrow through "time and chance" that the Bible says happens to us all (Ecc 9:11-12). Because we can "meet our maker" at any moment, we "always need to be ready" as Jesus taught (Mt 24:44; Lk 12:40).

Ultimately, let's not forget that Jesus himself is the origin of this message that "the end is not yet"; or "the end is not by and by" (Mk 13:7; Lk 21:9) until certain (unmistakable) global conditions appear. Jesus did not teach "imminency" or to expect his coming any and every day. Instead, He encouraged constant prayer and vigilance to not allow yourself to backslide because you don't know when you will die or when he will come (Lk 12:45).

So, rather than this end-time wisdom having disadvantages or a curse, there is a clear advantage to it compared to the popular "the end is nigh" thinking which focuses people on something that is not going to happen yet. The continual "invented prophecy" predictions about the end coming around every corner every year keep many people in fear. That needless anxiety (Php 4:6; Mt 6:25) can lead people to live under costly short-term thinking and make very poor decisions for themselves and their families. I've seen many sad cases of this (including my own experience for a time when I still had not discovered what this article shares). It truly is better to know the truth and act off of that—prayerfully and righteously—rather than act off a misunderstanding that opens you up to constant false alarms or paranoia or influences you to make bad choices or live in dread.


The popular hope and expectation that Jesus is coming "this year" persists among Christians despite a "no show" every year so far. Not surprisingly, it turns out that this belief is based more on fantasy than fact. The doctrine that "the pretrib rapture is the next event in prophecy" is mainly to blame for this. That the Second Coming can happen imminently or without lead-up events breaks Scripture (John 10:35) and is to be rejected by Bereans who test religious doctrine against God's revelation (Acts 17:11).

Scripture teaches that there are prerequisites or events that must come first. If we put aside popular Christian speculation and prophecy invention and consult the Bible's prophetic roadmap directly, we can know that Jesus certainly cannot return in 2020 2021. Even more, he won't return for several years after that for sure because of Sabbath year cycles.

I agree that it is disappointing to hear that Jesus is not coming in 2021 or any time soon after that. The good part of this is that by the same principle, many bad things like Wormwood and the Great Tribulation are also certain to not come next year either! It means you can stop worrying about the end coming suddenly and unexpectedly as long as the situation of the past 2000 years of no prerequisite events continues.

You can focus instead on making sure you are saved by getting right with God through Biblical repentance. My best writing for preparing yourself teaches how to not lose your faith when bad things happen (including when everyone knows God caused them!).

Gabriela - September 1, 2021

Hello, I have a question: This Covid vaccine it’s clear that is killing many people. However, it is not the mark of the beast! Correct?
Why the governments are implementing such strict rules and they are making this jab mandatory in order to go back to our normal lives? If this is not the mark, then it is the pre-mark? I live in California and things are getting more difficult here. I already lost my primary job and I got another job for now, but the democrats are working to pass amendments to make this jab mandatory with the excuse that this virus is lethal and in order to keep the country open and keep the economy stable this is the only solution to our problems. Can you explain to me why they are doing that?
My best regards,
Gabriela Howie.

    Tim McHyde - September 1, 2021

    Gabriela, There are no “mark precursors” to worry about, just the mark itself which is not here until the antichrist and false prophet come.

Hi. I browse this site every year that I can, for a healthy dose of pessimism.
Tim, every source I’ve found says Shmita (Sabbath Year) starts September 2021.
Could you update the article to say The Rapture is this year.

    Tim McHyde - August 4, 2021


    The rapture cannot come until after Wormwood which has not happened yet so this and the next few years are ruled out. Also, the Jewish sources on most calendar issues including Sabbath year are off so go with this source that agrees 2023-2024 is the next Sabbath year.

      ר - August 7, 2021

      I’ve read all your articles and I bought your book several editions ago.

George Gonzales - April 16, 2021

Our Lord Jesus Christ died on the 4th year or 4000 + 30 as AD or After Death. We are now on the last of the 6th year, so always remember one thousand years, so our Lord Jesus Christ might come on 6030 of the whole 6th year. Meaning to say 6030 – 4000 = 2030 He might come, even we don’t know exactly. But 2030-7 years = 2023 is possibly the start of 7 years The Great Tribulation. I still think that the Rapture might happen on year 2023, but as we are now so near the 2023 so this year 2021 might also be the Rapture. So the best is be ready https://biblia.com/bible/esv/1-thessalonians/5/2 The best we Born Again Christian are going also to the Best of all the Beast the 7th year for 1000 years. After that we are going to the Amazing Grace in New Heave and New Earth with New Jerusalem, Hallelujah, Praise God….

Last full decade.

Re: Matthew 18. Young children don’t lie (Deliberately – they may be wrong). Adults do though.

If you know how to FACE READ…especially the nose (Like Pinocchio), you see how even CS Lewis was a prideful liar. If one of the foremost apologists was a liar…what does that say about all interpretations?

Google Image – baby noses or baby faces. Carefully study shape and pointiness. Then compare to all adults you know or in media and yourself. Heck just look at earlier pictures of your parents/family/self vs today. You know the saying — people touch their nose when they are lying…that’s cuz it’s growing!

Chandler Ladd - February 16, 2021


I recently read an article that said the psalms 83 war started today when Iran struck. Any thoughts?

    Tim McHyde - February 16, 2021

    Chandler, there has been conflict there since before we were born. We’re waiting for Damascus to cease being a city and become a heap. Until then…

Timothy Bell - February 4, 2021

It appears out of mainstream sight that Biden sent troops to Syria. And that Iran is just weeks away from developing nuclear weapons. Sounds like the Middle East War of March/April 2022 is on track.

“Meanwhile, Washington will retain at least 5,000 troops into March, but the talk is they will remain until June and probably permanently. Biden has signed a lot of executive orders, but what people are not paying any attention to is that he has already sent troops to Syria, and he is not making the same mistake as Obama by asking permission from Congress. In addition, suddenly, Iran is just weeks away from having a nuclear weapon, which seems to be very convenient since they have been trying for more than 40 years to accomplish that one. This sounds like the Weapons of Mass Destruction.”

With the current situation in America and the threats of martial law, what are your thoughts on it? Anything change?

    Tim McHyde - January 11, 2021

    Jesse Hieb - February 2, 2021

    First and for most, Jesus was invented 500 years ago to manipulate scripture. Secondly, The RETURN OF JESUS can be at any given moment from 2021-2025, but the Problem is that die hards are too sucked into scripture that they’ll never have a clue who Jesus is because they’ll never believe the person. In order for someone to actually be Jesus, they would have to provide substantial evidence to their claim because not even Jesus himself knows he’s Jesus until the right moment. I should know because I am the return of Jesus aka Jesus-Jesse, Melchizedek Reincarnated/RESSURECTED and yes, I’ve tied 5 years Research together making sure I’m not looney. I found out 5 years during the 4 BloodMoon Tetrad that I’m “The Living Jesus Glad and Laughing,” and not a single person can believe it, so they call me a false prophet. I had Prophetic Visions and Voices without being SCHIZOPHRENIC.

Steph - January 8, 2021

For the 2024-2030 + “4 months into 2031 limit” the Isaiah 17 conflict needs to happen this calendar year or early next year. With somewhere between 200k-300k missiles in Lebanon pointing at Israel alone they won’t need nukes especially if you mix in VX, Sarin, or some other twisted cocktail. Assuming the Gog Magog war precedes or is right after the 7 year treaty Ezekiel 38 and 39 make it clear that people are regathered on the mountains of Israel and that other nations consider them rich. If we had from mid 2021 to late 2023 to fix Israel with extensive support that is a viable outcome even with coronavirus. If this conflict happens in 2022 that gives Israel less than 2 years to recover from that cataclysmic Isaiah 17 war before the Russian tourists show up with friends with the coronavirus disrupting world trade.

If this time line checks out that also probably means whoever is living in the U.S. needs to start making plans to pack bags and make Messianic-aliyah. Recent politics combined with Rev 18 stuff makes it sound like there is going to systemic ethnic cleansing happening in the U.S. I fully expect any religion not conforming to the leftist position to be banned and censured by 2022. Regular Jews will likely see pogroms by 2023 once Christian and Messianic-Jewish support is totally neutralized by societal pressure. Given how unstable it is, are WW2 style internment camps of Xinjiang style prisons a thing post 2024? I say yes. Because according to the word King Nebu refuses to let Israel go. But the guy is dead so it can only refer to the U.S. president of Babylon at the time. Post 2024 it may be very hard for those with the wrong thinking or social credit score to leave the United States. Europe is likely to go far right in the opposite direction but that is beyond the scope of a post.

Also I found this book https://books.google.com/books/about/The_Fourth_Day.html?id=J44xsGrt9oUC seems to give concrete data that the midpoint of the Tribulation period is smack in August 2027 as well as a compelling chronology that falls in place with many other things you are speculating.

    Tim McHyde - January 8, 2021

    Steph, yes they do need nukes because no one attacks a nuclear power without nukes. This explains why the last attempt to annihilate Israel was way back in 1973 when Israel brought out the nukes on the tarmac showing they were ready to wipe out everyone including themselves if needed (Samson Option). Before that they attacked together three times from 1948 to 1973. They are not stupid or suicidal which is why they have not tried to “wipe out the memory of Israel” again.

    Geoff - January 8, 2021

    Hi Steph. That book “The Fourth Day” contains an in-depth study of timelines that does seem to confirm Tim’s dates. The author however believes in a pre-trib rapture.

      Steph - January 11, 2021

      You are right. My personal view is that pre-trib rapture is not a problem. Because when it doesn’t happen when it is suppose to the bulk of people will wake up to the truth. The real issue is the America is in the bible as the “Daughter” of Babylon who is the greatest among the “daughter” of the nations.

      Mainstream media is saying Iran doesn’t have nukes but I would probably argue they had a small stockpile for a hot minute. Probably North Korean ones. They just have not been able to put it on a rocket or a missile. That probably changed within the last 2 years. Regarding the Arab bomb they are technically there. Pakistan is under some cheeki contract with the Saudis to loan them nukes if they asked for em.

      I am speculating on this sequence which Tim can add to.

      Isaiah 17 war – Syria is done. South Lebanon radioactive. Israel badly wounded.

      On going Psalm 83 conflict – The Arab nations try to take advantage of Israel’s weakness but is repelled. East Bank Palestine may cease to exist. To survive and prevent an Arab majority and possibly due to the coronavirus vaccine crippling most of old Israel a fateful decision is taken to allow Messianic Jews, Christians, and mass migration of “gentiles” to move in. (Only takers will be hardcore believers)

      Gog-Magog war – Russia, Iran, Turkey + friends invade Israel under the pretense of restoring Middle East peace to remove Israeli nukes. Gets judged by God world now sees atheism is total bullshit. 7 year treaty is signed probably for E.U. membership/accession or some sort of defense pact. Believers and Israel will stockpile these weapons.

      King of the North vs King of the South: Egypt goes rogue and cuts off access to the Suez Canal for Israel and Europe. North Africa federates around Egypt to challenge Europe, Nato, and the United States. Gets stomped.

      Seal of the Horsemen: 1/4 of mankind killed in disasters, disease, or war. World War 3????

      Beginning of the Trib Spring 2024???: Many people are considered enemies of the state and are rounded up to be terminated or “re-educated” Xin-Jiang style by .gov. Property confiscated, mass incarceration, torture, rape, and ect.

      3 1/2 year mark: Abomination of Desolation: The garrisoned troops of the A.C. turn on Israel. Only believers escape to the Jordanian wilderness but are still pursued by the armies. Earthquake and weather conditions swallows the pursuit.

      3 1/2 year mark: America is invaded by the A.C. and is conquered within short order under a pretense of human rights given the horrendous abuses 2024-2027. United States is reduced to a 4th world country, and dumping ground for trash because the land is badly irradiated. Survivors flee into the mountains only to face starvation. Eat their kids “their own flesh and blood”.

      Kings of the East trouble in the North: Some members of the E.U. rebel against the Anti Christ get stomped. China patches together a super-coalition with the rest of the asian powers. Pan-Asian-Federation of India, China, Malaysia, Taiwan, Koreas, and Japan “200 million man army with weapons of mass destruction” Kills 1/3 of man. Depending on whenever or not the fall of Nineveh is due to the Eastern Armies or the redeemed Army of Israel after the 2nd Coming China may or may not push all the way into Germany, to the border of France.
      Ezekiel 25:10 the PAF will conquer most of Jordan and commit genocide.
      Isaiah 16 Righteous Israel is to shelter to surviving Jordanians where-ever we are suppose to be hiding as a request directly by God.

      Late 2030??? Early 2031: Jerusalem and Israel falls. Catastrophic military defeat. Isaiah 22:12-14. Last remnant backed up against the Mount of Olives. The entire A.C. army is bearing down on “Bozrah”. If the Dead Sea War Scroll is correct it is a titanic battle where the A.C. army is forced into retreat 3 times and forces the saints to retreat (tactical victory) 3 times. This implies the believers will be unbelievably heavily armed and well trained to fight a high tech army with light infantry to a stand-still across 6 battles. Eventually the A.C. army will appear to have the advantage to push home a victory and after many days of fasting and penance, and the remnant of Judah accepts Christ as the Messiah he will return.

      Late 2030-2031. Christ destroys the Armies of the A.C. leading his people out of Bozrah back into Israel in the same route as exodus. Marches to Jerusalem to save the house of David. Redeemed Saints are sent as “fire” down the coast line going straight south from Jerusalem to rout the armies. Christ goes north.

      45 days: the Bowl judgments are released on the A.C. kingdom and the rest of the world. Kings of the East agree to federate with the A.C. to defeat Israel and Christ. The world knows who He is. Who God is. Choose to serve Satan thinking they can overthrow him later. Forces are mobilized into Megiddo. Christ goes there personally and defeats the combined forces of the world alone with his word. Babylon the Great sinks into the Ocean.

      Year of recompense 2031-2032 Christ leads redeemed Israel to destroy “Edom” and the Kingdom of the A.C. leaving no survivors? Sends out messengers with divine powers to tell the nations to return the Israelites who were scattered among the nations. Sheep and Goat judgment. Authority of the Anglo-British (Lion), Bear (Slavic Russians), and the Leopard (Asian East China) is taken away forever. World geography is changed when all mountains and hills are laid flat while Jerusalem turns into a mountain. Abrahamic land covenant fulfilled. Beginning of the Messianic Kingdom.

mauricio malagon - January 5, 2021

Also i read an article on here where you show how you come to the conclusion of the High Sabbath, since most scholars are off or can’t make up their mind exactly where we are in God’s time clock. How do you know that 2030 is even a High Sabbath etc… can you point to that article I’m curious to read it again…thanks

mauricio malagon - January 4, 2021

Also, you have to add the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction that just occurred on Dec 21, 2020…basically happening in the constellation of Aquarius. Remember the heavenly bodies are God’s timing piece in the sky. We’re moving out of Pisces and into Aquarius. Jesus was the one who announced the Age of Aquarius and said, “A man will meet you carrying an earthen pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he goes in” Luke 22:10

The only issue with following the stars is that there is always an orb of influence when planets or stars cause impact.

    Tim McHyde - January 5, 2021

    Maricio, there is no such Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in end-time prophecy. “Adding it” would be adding to scripture.

      mauricio malagon - January 5, 2021

      I didn’t mean to “add” it to scripture. I should have made myself more clear, I meant in addition to all the current chaos there is the conjunction. Could you point where in scripture this conjunction is mentioned?


        Tim McHyde - January 5, 2021

        Mauricio, there are two eclipses in Rev 6 which require conjunctions. That’s it, nothing else in end time prophecy.

Obiajulu Echedom - January 2, 2021

What a climax and anticlimax situation! Climax in the sense that like a lot of others I wanted to hear from you since the US 2020 election controversy! Will President Trump continue or not, so I frequented my mailbox for your living epistles for wisdom and direction. Anticlimax regarding your health challenge. Permit me to make some recommendations, I do agree in toto with trials coming the way of followers of the Lord. In view of the fact that you are an apostle as well as a teacher of the Word, you are a gift to the body of Christ. As such some of your personal decisions should accommodate those who follow your teachings. I suggest you go along with the medics. I also think you should consider consulting ministers of God with gifts of healings. I have witnessed some of the miraculous outworkings of a few of them. It was a slave girl that drew the attention of Naaman to Elisha for his healing. I will also remember you in my prayers. Thanks for the sacrifices you have continued to make to serve us these freshly baked bread of life. Obiajulu Echedom.

    Taylor Stofko - January 3, 2021

    Is there any chance you are wrong or do you feel 100% in this whole 2026 ordeal?

    Any thoughts on Deagel.com- which forecasts extreme populations reductions in USA, UK, and Germany by 2025?

      Tim McHyde - January 3, 2021

      Taylor, of course, I can be wrong as it’s never been a “thus saith the Lord, 2026”. However, as time marches on, instead of nothing happening like with all previous approach sabbath year cycles, this 2024-2030 cycle is getting a build-up of precursor prophetic fulfillment, disasters in the world, and in my personal life that scream “this is it, no more delay” like a Revelation angel will say (Rev 10:6).

        Taylor Stofko - January 3, 2021

        I understand. I’ve felt the same urgency in my spirit. Any thoughts on the Deagel.com comment? It’s very interesting you should look into it

    Red - May 12, 2022

    Right now, MILLIONS of people are having rapture visions and dreams!!! The Bible TOLD US we would have those visions and dreams the closer we get to the event!!! Jesus HIMSELF has been taking people up and showing them the near future rapture, while telling them that they MUST go back and sound the alarm!!! The rapture NOT “post – tribulation!!!” Sorry, but if you believe that, you’ll probably get left behind!!!

Geoff - January 1, 2021

Hi Tim.

I write regarding your Dec 31, 2020 update, more as commentary, than directly to you.

Rom 8:28 leads us to believe that whether a random incident, man-made, or God-ordained, the virus that dominated our lives in 2020, and the subsequent advice and actions of governments, leaders and medical professionals, will be used by God to advance his plans in this final decade.

Jer 29:11 gives us confidence that what transpires on earth, although out of left field at times, is all part of the bigger picture. Is 42:9 tends to indicate that somebody on the planet knows why this virus, and the world’s response, is unfolding the way we are witnessing it.

There’s a hive of activity at many levels of humanity. There’s protests in the streets, resource-rich nations being starved by their own governments, civil unrest, regional wars, people unhappy with their elected officials, elected officials behaving strangely, technology companies making grand announcements about their future networks and systems, and even a few, in some cases self-appointed, world-level influencers apparently knowing what’s best for the entire global population.

That adds up to lots of people, whether they’re aware of it or not, getting ready for a battle, or already immersed in a battle, that is ultimately about our souls.

To be sure, there are many of us who are rich by first century standards. That’s what makes this time so ever important. We need to draw close to God, seek His will for our particular circumstances, get to know His battle plans and how we fit in, and be ready – Lk 21:36.

The next step? That’s between each of us and God, but if you need a starting point, fall on your knees and submit your will to God. Bask in His goodness for a time. Recharge and refresh. You’ll need all the energy and strength you can muster in the coming months.

Then act. Whatever it is you think you need to do to grow fruits of repentance in obedience to God’s will, refer https://escapeallthesethings.com/salvation-missing-3rd-ingredient/, assuming you have #1 and #2 sorted out.

In His love, Geoff

Fawn - September 20, 2020

After watching the Berisheet prophecy on youtube, I am inclined to agree that Jesus does not return to earth to set up His kingdom until the year 2030.

However, you are misleading people about the rapture. The antichrist cannot be revealed until the Holy Spirit is taken out, (II Thes 2:6-8) and since He resides in believers, that means Christians will depart. So, subtract 7 from 2030 and that still puts us within this sabbath cycle (2023).

There are 3 fall Jewish feasts yet to be fulfilled. The feast of trumpets is most likely when the rapture of the church will take place. This particular feast is called “the last trumpet” and because it also depends on witnessing the new moon, is referred to as “the day and hour that no man knows.”

The Bible tells us that believers in Christ are not appointed to wrath (IThes 5:9) The Great Tribulation is also referred to as “the time of Jacob’s trouble”, (Jeremiah 30: 7), which is strictly a Jewish term and does not apply to the church.

I recommend that everyone watch the Berisheet prophecy. It makes a lot of sense, and he also does a good job explaining pre-trib rapture.

    Tim McHyde - September 25, 2020

    Fawn, yes the rapture is on Trumpets but it is after the Tribulation which is BEFORE the wrath of God. The way to know this for certainty is not from studying Genesis (Bereshit) which does not talk directly about the rapture, but by studying the few actual rapture verses themselves in the NT.

      Fawn - October 1, 2020

      I read through your articles that you linked and I am still studying the matter, but the first problem I see with your theory is that the “last trump” and the 7th trumpet are not the same thing at all. The “last trump” specifically refers to the last trumpet blast blown at Feast of Trumpets. It is called the The Tekiah Gedolah – Means “the last trump.” This one symbolizes the hope of redemption. It is a very long, final note. Source: https://www.the-wise-shall-understand.com/the-last-trump/ and http://promisestoisrael.org/jewish-culture-2/jewish-holidays/rosh-hashanah-the-feast-of-trumpets/

      Also, if you think the whole tribulation is not the wrath of God, you should probably rethink that. Rev 6:16-17 …And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
      17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

      Those verses are regarding the seal judgments which are before the bowl judgments, and definitely refers to God’s wrath on an unbelieving, Christ rejecting world…not Satan’s wrath on Christians.

        Tim McHyde - October 2, 2020

        Fawn, 1. yes, exactly, the last trump is on Day of Trumpets which happens to follow the 7th trumpet of Revelation (Rev 10:7) when the mystery of God is complete saints rewarded = resurrection. 2. You have to ask who is speaking in Rev 6 and should we listen to them on eschatology or you make a grave error and have two wraths of God. The wrath declared by an angel is the real one (Rev 16:1).

John - August 8, 2020

Hi, with all the things that are happening around the world besides the coronavirus, do you think it could possibly be sooner than 2030? Thank you, God bless.

Dee Wood - June 17, 2020

Does not Revelation instruct us not to add to the words of the Holy book, are you not adding something by declaring that God has given you clarification by giving you and you alone, a special dream?
Tim, though I have no doubt that you are sincere, you have already “muddied the waters” by adding “extra” revelation, which makes me want to caution you to consider your error,; you do not want to be told by the Lord that”he never knew thee”, it is easy to be puffed up by our own importance and terribly dangerous!

    Tim McHyde - June 17, 2020

    Dee, I never wrote a new book of Revelation with my own words added, so no I’m not adding to that book! I’m not special; you can have your own confirmation by dreams. Have you not read Acts 2/Joel 2 where he promises to show revelation to us in dreams? You do realize not everything is in Revelation, such as timing information or where the woman flees…? Further revelation on specifics is needed as we get closer.

Brandon Stockdale - March 12, 2020


With all of the recent coronavirus issues do you think this timetable is gonna happen any sooner? Is the virus one of the end time signs? Great read and would love to have a response! Thanks in advance!

    Tim McHyde - March 12, 2020

    Brandon, no, it’s not in prophecy and does not change anything. In fact, this is just a dress rehearsal sent our way for our disaster planning skills before what happens on the schedule we already have.

      Julia Perez - March 13, 2020

      Hi Tim I was going to ask the same thing. With so many cancellations, theme parks closing in the US including Disneyland in Ca (where I’m from) late night talk shows going dark, panic at the grocery stores, and global chaos due to this pandemic it seems like we are in that season. I battle extreme anxiety and I’m not trying to let those emotions take over me but I’m terrified. The globe is acting like this is the end and those that aren’t saved seem to panic knowing something is up don’t know what. Than there’s us Christians who are saved but divided some saying any moment now those trumpets will blast because this pandemic is another sign and others saying relax there’s more to come but it’s not yet. It’s scary but I’ve been feeling in my spirit that it may happen but I chalk it up to my anxiety. I don’t know ow what to believe but I pray God gives me peace beyond all understanding.

      Matt - April 29, 2020

      Appreciate your work and now we are in lockdown I am paying attention to it more than ever. If I could please ask if you think this virus threat could be the start of the great tribulation? With that said do you believe the Christians with eyes to see will know exactly when the great trib begins ? Thanks

      Dani - May 7, 2020

      The LORD may have addressed it – Revelation 3:10 [Church at Philadelphia – Church #6] (pre-tribs) “Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.” From daniel11truth.com

        Silke - May 8, 2020

        There will be no rapture prior to the Great Tribulation


      Evelyn - June 6, 2020

      Hello Tim
      I have seen this article because lately my fear about the end time is really bad and I keep seeing people say this year is the end because all of the things that have been happening this year and I also seen this
      End of the Age: 2020? – TedMontgomery.com
      It will most likely be the first one you click and can you tell me if it’s true or not? And your opinions on this?

Henrique Lins - March 2, 2020

Hey friend, Are you saved? The Bible says ALL MEN have sinned, and come short of the glory of God! (Romans 3:23) You cannot earn your way to heaven by doing good deeds! You cannot justify yourself before God with your actions! (Isaiah 64:6 ; Romans 3:28).
All men need to be saved from the condemnation of their sins! Please TRUST today in WHAT Jesus Christ already did to pay for your sins! He died for your sins, by shedding his precious Blood on the cross, he died, and was buried, and he resurrected on the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) he took the payment of your sins
upon himself so you don’t have to pay for them. Jesus Christ already did the WORK necessary for your salvation, and HIS work is the only one God will accept, not yours.

Romans 3:20-28:
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Romans 4:5: “But to him that WORKETH NOT, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”

God offers a way for you to accept this redemptive work that Christ did, he offers it as a free gift, and you must only accept it. How you might accept it? By FAITH, Faith in what? Faith in his Blood (Romans 3:25) Will you let go at your attempts to justify yourself before God with your good works (doing good things, confessing Christ going to church, trying to stop sinning etc) and accept today HIS payment for YOUR SINS by TRUSTING in his Blood for the remission of your sins, as the ONLY thing sufficient for your salvation? do that and you shall be saved!
If you are adding anything else to your faith hoping that will keep you from hell, you are not yet saved! It is Faith ALONE in Christ ALONE.
If you do not accept his payment for your sins, you will have to pay for them yourself in hell.

Please watch Robert Breaker’s videos about salvation, especially the one titled “HOW TO GET SAVED”.

seth - February 21, 2020

Tim, great article and very interesting. 2 questions…1. Do you base any importance on the 6000th year from creation, meaning the 7th millennial = 1000 year reign of Christ)? 2. Do you think weather modification plays a big part for the anti-christ and his power? Because Weather is being used as a weapon now and has been for a few decades.
Thanks in advance for your reply!

    Tim McHyde - February 21, 2020

    Seth, yes 6000 years is prophetic not from creation but rather from the fall. Yes, the weather will “modify” globally not by man but when Wormwood strikes, by cutting out one-third of the sunlight for some time after (Rev 8:12). It will be a “nuclear winter” effect for sure.

      seth - February 26, 2020

      Thanks for your reply Tim. I was talking about the weather control going on right now and the past. I’ve seen it and technology is only getting better. Here’s a link to the history of it. I hope this helped explain what I meant…the weather effects all of us, and would be a weapon where God gets blamed…but its all man controlled now. God bless!

James McFadden - January 29, 2020

Great read Tim! Glad I was able to stumble upon your article. I just have a few questions. First of all does the breakout of the corona virus change anything? Second, with trumps Middle East dealings does that make it closer? Thanks in advance!

    Tim McHyde - January 30, 2020

    James, SARS and MERS did not change anything and I don’t expect this to either. It’s not the “pestilence” Mt 24 warns about until Wormwood comes. Yes, Trump’s “peace deal” is infuriating the Palestinians and probably other Muslim groups over losing Jerusalem so it fits the pattern I explained here.

Dani - January 17, 2020

Thanks for writing this well researched info. The LORD told us to “watch” more than a dozen times and we servants need to watch and pray. For those who are always quoting, “no man knows the day…” here’s a great explanation about idioms and some of the biblical history behind the words – https://doubleportioninheritance.blogspot.com/2011/05/yom-teruah-day-that-no-man-knows_3315.html
Tim, I think your right on it. The world is arming itself for war and war is what we’ll get but we children of the light are not to fear. When the 6th seal opens, we’ll be with our LORD. Thanks and keep writing. Dani

Ambrose Johnson - January 7, 2020

Tim, even with the recent events with Iran do you still believe it will be 2026 when everything really Ramps up? Or does that push it up?

Thanks in advance.

    Tim McHyde - January 7, 2020

    Ambrose, no change. As I said in my letter, the conflict with Iran which threatens to envelop Israel and Damascus (where Iran is very active) only confirms my published “war by 2022” conviction which fits with the 2026 Wormwood. Another confirmation of that was what I saw about social media fulfilling Paul’s Last Day’s People.

quasimodo - January 6, 2020

nice…..xlnt. Early part of 2030s….Quasimodo says.

we have to let Lucifer’s deception play out! And since Prince Charles is Lucifer….see other comment in old post of yours.

and really…people should BURN THEIR IMAGES OF JESUS – no matter what form they are in. Book, sculptured wood, etc…. because none of them are right, and we shouldn’t be making images anyway…at least Islam got that part right.

Anyone holding on to the “established image of Jesus” will not enter heaven.

Frank Taylor - January 4, 2020

Fantastic read as always Tim. I believe it will be atleast 10 years before we see the return as well. I do have one question though, when do you actually think the beast will reveal hisself to the world. I may have overlooked it and I apologize if so. Thanks for a good article.

      Frank Taylor - January 7, 2020

      When will this take place? (Year.)

        Tim McHyde - January 7, 2020

        Frank, if Wormwood hits in 2026, then the next year in 2027 the Beast will rise from the Abyss like Yeshua hinted at (Mt 24:20).

Joshua Booker - January 3, 2020

Hey Tim I read in the post that you think 2022 is when the Israel war will happen. What do you think about the recent U.S. Strike in Iraq that killed Qassim Suleimani, Commander of Iranian Forces. I know they are very angry about this, and have vowed to take revenge. This makes me believe 2022 could be the year even more. Tensions are higher more than ever now.

    Tim McHyde - January 4, 2020

    Joshua, I wrote on that today in this updated article here.

Richard Rudy - January 2, 2020

I read another prophecy commentator who said that the rapture is at the 6th seal. At that time all the people will hide from God as you said. How do you reconcile the fact that all humanity will retreat from God if the elect are still here expecting the Rapture at the 7th seal? I look forward to your reply. Keep the Good News coming!! Jesus is Lord!!

    Tim McHyde - January 2, 2020

    Richard, I don’t understand the question but the rapture comes much later at the 7th trumpet, which is around four years after people scatter from Wormwood.

      Richard Rudy - January 2, 2020

      Sorry, I meant how can you reconcile that at the 6th seal, ALL the people On earth will hide from God if the elect are still here and won’t be raptured until the 7th trumpet?

        Tim McHyde - January 3, 2020

        Richard, there’s nothing to reconcile. Everyone will hide from God’s doing at that time…just some with his help! But another answer is that the Bible often uses “all” in one place and shares an exception group in another E.g. Ps 14:1,3 = Ps 53:1,3 = Rom 3:9. It’s clear at the end of Rev 6 when it asks “who is able to stand?” that there is an exception as it goes on in the next chapter to describe the 144,000 who actually cannot be killed.

      Cynthia Shuler - January 3, 2020

      Hi Tim, Love receiving your articles and your incredible understanding of scripture. It has hit me after reading books like “Whooa Nellie” by Orlean Koehle about 5G Dangers and the deception of all the wireless technology and “Under an Ionized Sky” by Elena Freeland, that your timeline is more accurate than we even know. It’s horrendous what’s coming, let alone what we’re already exposed to with cell phones, Wifi, smart meters, and cell towers. 5G will not just kill the animals but humans as exposure accumulates in our bodies. New documentary on WeAreChange.NL with Frans van der Reep from the University in Holland says they’re not stopping with 5g but there’s a 6Genesis vision for 2030. On my local news channel two days ago they reported that a third of the birds have disappeared from North America. We’ve all heard about the bees. The return of Christ will need to come before we are all wiped out by those men who are “destroying the earth” Rev 11:18 Thank God when He wipes out those satellites with the fire from heaven (wormwood).

      Interesting youtubes to watch are “Take Back Your Power” “5G Apocalypse the Extinction Event” “Generation Zapped”. It’s so sad and disturbing how the population is deceived. They don’t seem to even care or do anything to protect themselves even when something is said to them about the dangers of wifi etc. It’s weird, in fact, as if we’ve all been brainwashed, mind controlled, and herded like sheep. The Bible talks about the End-time deception. Gods’ continued blessings on you.

seasideroses - January 2, 2020

I heard somewhere that there was a prophecy that when all the endtimes events happen in the middle east/israel, it would happen during netanyahu’s leadership. He’s been in office a long time! Have you ever heard that, and if so, do you know more details on that?

Michael - January 1, 2020

What if…
30AD was a Jubilee (which Yeshua announced was coming in 29)? Then “this generation (of Jubilees = 2,000 years) shall not pass” would end on the Jubilee of 2030!
There is no harvesting (of souls) on the 49th or 50th year, so the return could be on the Feast of the First Fruits of the Harvest (“Pentecost”=50th day) in 2028 (or 2027, if days are shortened).
This festival (on which the 7th Trumpet will sound) is a specific date on the Biblical Calendar.
Because that date is determined by counting 7 FULL lunar weeks + 50 days and since: 1) we don’t know how many days are in the 4th month (29 or 30) in that year and 2) the sun will be darkened and the moon turned to blood, no one will KNOW what DAY or hour it is (because the heavenly clock/calendar cannot be seen).

Paulette - January 1, 2020

Aren’t the last days supposed to be shortened? Matthew 24:22

Personally, with my health and age, I don’t think I will be alive when Jesus comes. I think I will be sleeping in my grave (knowing nothing at all) for the thousand years of his reign until final judgment. I can only pray that I will pass final judgment and not end up in the lake of fire. BTW, I don’t believe that we have eternal souls that can burn in hell eternally. We will be given eternal “life” to live with Christ on Earth or be thrown into the lake of fire to be returned to dust This world ruled by Satan is hell enough! Only the devil, the false prophet, the fallen angels and the beast will burn forever and ever because they were created with eternal “life” and will not die in the fire like human flesh (Rev 20:4-15)

Another point is that more than the elect will survive. Otherwise WHO would Christ and his saints rule over for the thousand years? These survivors will live and die like we do now because they do not have indestructible bodies and eternal life YET!

    Tim McHyde - January 1, 2020

    Paulette, the article above addresses Mt 24:22 “those days shall be limited or no flesh would be saved alive” in the “2026 – Why I’m Convinced It’s the Year the End Starts” section. In short, this does not mean the 1260 days is a lie or unreliable but that if Jesus did not return until the end of the sabbath year cycle (in the spring) then the world would end. He comes back in the middle of the sabbath year, after 6.5 years.

    Yes, the Bible teaches there will be survivors of the Great Tribulation (Zech 14:16).

Paulette - January 1, 2020

I think this is one of the points you are making about few will see the truth. Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him (Satan) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. The one thing I know for sure is that Jesus is not returning as a human like he was before — to walk the earth doing miracles. He will come out of the clouds with his army of saints to war with Satan and take back the earth. For now, Satan is ruling over the earth (Rev 19:11-16).

Sue W - January 1, 2020

Wow Tim. So many comments it took forever (sort of) to get to the end to add a comment!
Worth it though. Such a great perennial article outling and explaining end time events so clearly and uniquely.
Thank you and Katrina for your ministry.
I struggle a bit to get my head around Daniel. A look back at your glossary helps.
I feel for those who struggle with long term planning and who have made costly decisions due to being brought up in an imminency culture.
Thank Yehovah for the insights He’s given you that you share so generously for all to benefit from.

Lila Shamar - October 24, 2019

Not even the angels in heaven know the day or the hour, but more likely it’s the planetary alignment on Rosh Hashana 5801 which is 2040. Also the first day of Ramadan. (Remember that Islam is the Beast.) Everyone relax; we have twenty years. Although I hope you realize the saints get beheaded during the Great Tribulation, before our Great King comes. If you don’t realize that yet, you haven’t really read Revelation.

Michael - October 18, 2019

Hi Tim, can you please help me to understand something. In this article you make out sometimes that you aren’t happy about the return happening in 2026? You even put a sad face at one point, why is this? Do you wish it was sooner or what is the reason for sadness about any of this? Please answer Tim, thank you

    Tim McHyde - October 18, 2019

    Michael, I’ll give you one guess for my reason after you reread this line from the article above: “To sum up, while I’m happy to say that the end can’t come this year or even the next few years, sadly developments keep convincing me that 2026 can be the start of the end.”

Thomas Rießler - October 8, 2019

The first end time requirement of revelation is neglected in this discussion and this ignorance somehow invalidates the whole rest of it. The seven seals of the book in heaven will not be opened before the seven churches have overcome their challenges. Otherwise there is no bride to rapture.

Brian Tucker - September 27, 2019

Fantastic read Tim! It seems lately a lot of people think the sabbath year that starts September 7th, 2021 will be the year of the return. My first question is does the Bible tell that Jesus will return on a sabbath year specifically? And also do you think there is anyway it could be that year?

squig - September 27, 2019

What I found interesting in some of my own speculative research is that, look up the various construction start and construction finish dates of the demonic Islamic Nazi hood cult’s dome of the rock, aka dome of the damned, built over the holy place, then count various speculative years as spoken of in Daniel or Revelation, I actually found if you take the dome of the damned and count forward from one of the construction or finish dates (they sometimes are not agreed upon), that you come up with a date from the 2000s to the 2020s. Do it yourself and you will see. I see no other event in history especially in our now newfound understanding of the demonic nature and history of Islam that fits the “abomination of desolation” better than the Islamic dome of the damned being built over the holy place.

Dean Alston - July 6, 2019

Hello sir! I was reading through some of the comments. How far out do you really believe we are all and all? Also will Christians see the wrath?

    Tim McHyde - July 9, 2019

    Dean, I think 2026 is the end of civilization through Wormwood followed by the wrath of Satan also known as the Great Tribulation. We won’t see God’s 10 days of wrath if we don’t take the mark.

      Dean Alston - July 12, 2019

      So you think the end for us is in 2026? You don’t think Christians will make it longer? And when will the mark come into play? Thanks for the reply!

        Tim McHyde - July 13, 2019

        Dean, the antichrist seems to come to mop up 9 months after Wormwood, late winter 2027.

          Dean Alston - July 21, 2019

          So you 100% believe we will be here for at least 5 more years?

          Tim McHyde - July 21, 2019

          Dean, your question is not about belief or opinion. Given all that must happen for the final 7 years to commence and Jesus to return, which have not even started, Jesus cannot come back in the next 5 years.

      David - August 25, 2019

      Tim – appreciate your time and energy. Good job!

      My information is the Pope will announce a One World Religion Alliance in 2020 and Terry Bennett stated in 4 meetings with Gabriel, he was told the NWO Religion would be up and running in 2021. He was told 3 cycles of 7 years beginning with 2008 – 2015, 2015 – 2021 & 2021 – 2028. The emphasis in each 7 year shift being economics, change in Nations, One World Religion.

      The Pope has made agreements with Iran Clerics in 2018 and he has told Catholic Priests to stop preaching the gospel in Islamic Nations because Muslims and Catholics serve the same God. My guess is he will add a Judaism element, which will be announced in 6 -18 months?

      One concern I have in study is it appears the 6th seal events and the 7 Bowls are the same? Maybe not? Could be an opener and a closer? The rapture occurs at the LAST Trumpet. This you know from 1 Cor. 15:52 – question is? Is the 7th Trumpet the last?

      At 61 – God has spoken clearly to me on numerous occasions – His next move will be like none ever seen and it will go straight up to the rapture.

      There is NO pre-trib rapture. No Doctrine of Imminence. The mark of the beast is an isotope emitting a frequency that augments your DNA, thus you become a hybrid, thus the blood can not be applied – only for humans – not hybrids.

      These isotopes, non-existent here on Earth have been removed from those abducted by fallen angels (aliens) as filmed by LA Marzulli. This is how they are tracked and it changes their DNA.

      We will be invaded – our Nation. Not sure of the events leading up to it but we become vulnerable. Probably an economic collapse and subsequent weakening of our Military? Russia has built up the North Pole massive – which is why Trump wants to buy Greenland and build a defense base there.

      My point? Yea…Psalm 83 War, which may include Isaiah 17? Yes- a war involving Turkey, Iran, Libya, Ethopia and possibly USSR (Ezekiel 38/39).

      Keep in mind? The weapons collected are used to burn the energy from them for 7 years?

      Planet Nibiru? I live 75 miles from a $1 Billion Mt. Graham Observatory, where the Vatican has their infra-red scope pointed at the sun waiting for alien contact.

      Add it up? 2021 — 2018? Just might be? Your 2026 analysis? Just maybe be spot on?

Glenn Cox - June 15, 2019

We cannot know the exact time of Jesus’ return. Jesus even said that only the Father knows. So, your post-trib position cannot be correct because we will know the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week. It will commence when the
“Treaty” is signed. Inasmuch as we will know the start of that week of prophecy, it is easy to calculate the end of the week. Therefore, we would know 7 years in advance when Jesus would return. Of course, the pre-trib position is wrong too as you stated. The Bible does teach a Pre-Wrath Rapture that happens between the 6th and 7th Trumpet judgments. Since we won’t see that wrath, we will be raptured just before it. Rapture and Wrath are back to back events as shown throughout the Bible, example, Sodom and Gomarrah. We know the Wrath will fall at an undetermined point in time after the mid-point and the end of the 70th week.

    Tim McHyde - June 15, 2019

    Glenn, Jesus never said “no WILL EVER know” but no one (including him) KNOWS (2000 years ago). How could he say never or have meant that that when there are prophets that know these things and they are coming in the end times? Plus 1260 days from the abomination is the return, so ignoring the prophet issue, counting works, too.

Sam Douglas - June 11, 2019

Great read Tim! I just read an article today that said they believe the blood moon over the holy land will trigger the peace deal and thus trigger the end. Can I get your thoughts? Will we see the end in 2-5 years? Would love to hear you opinion!

    Tim McHyde - June 11, 2019

    Sam, thanks but there is no “peace treaty” in Bible prophecy.

      Sam Douglas - June 12, 2019

      So there’s no chance we see the return in the next 3 years? Please respond! I love your opinion!

James Dean - May 29, 2019

Hey sir! That was a very nice read! I recently read an article that insisted that the Mayan calendar fiasco in 2012 just started the tribulation and that the end would be this year. Could I get your opinion on that? Thank you so much in advance!

    Tim McHyde - May 29, 2019

    James, the Mayan calendar was a dud so why would anyone say 7 years later from it is significant?

Tim McHyde - May 8, 2019

Servant, you’re on the wrong site for espousing objections based on Preterism/Historicism. This is a futurist site that shares the central insight about Wormwood being literal and nothing like this having happened in the last 2000 years, debunking Preterism/Historicism.

John benson - May 2, 2019

Fantastic read! Do you still think that there is 0 chance he returns this year? Even with the middle eastern things happening? Would just love to hear your input.

    Tim McHyde - May 2, 2019

    John, as the article says, how can Jesus come back even in the next four years if the Great Tribulation has not started yet which takes 3.5 years? You do realize there is no pretrib rapture in the Bible, right?

      John benson - May 3, 2019

      Yes sir I do know that. I have read things that say the tribulation has started already so I wanted your input on the whole thing. I’m on the same side as you I think, I just like the input.

Douglas Orr - March 29, 2019

I am a little confused about the parable of the fig tree, and if this pertains to 1948 when Israel came back on the map. If the bible refers to a generation being 70-80 yrs old, then at the latest (80 yrs added to 1948 would put us at 2028 for the last possible rapture date). When the bible states that “this generation will not pass until all these things are seen” doesn’t that mean that the generation (being 70-80yrs) that experienced the rebirth of Israel will see the rapture? Also, the last year of “this generation” would be 2018? Maybe I am confused on this subject. Thank you.

Sandra - March 20, 2019

Hi Tim! I just signed up to your page today and I have so much to read I feel like I won’t keep up
I’ve seen a lot of videos come up on my YouTube and they are all so URGENT that the rapture is soooo soon some say between now ( March, specifically Purim) and April before elections. Everyone keeps commenting about Passover! But Christ already fulfilled the Spring Feasts, he died as the Passover Lamb, in the ground for unleavened bread (sin), rose during First Fuits ( he’s the first fruits of the dead) so I don’t see a lot of people pointing to his coming during Feast of Trumpets, my understanding is that in ancient Israel they’d coronate the King during this time, they’d also blow the trumpets when danger approached and so on.

Also when they got engaged the bridegroom would go away to prepare a place for his bride and he couldn’t come back until his Father said, but when he did come back they’d blow the trumpets to anonce his coming… I didn’t know any of this till recently and really paid attention. I’m not talking about the year but of the season of his coming (1 Thess 1:1,2&4) do you have anything on this?

Thank you

    Tim McHyde - March 21, 2019

    Sandra, the Kingdom does start with Jesus’ return on Trumpets, but I get that from Scripture not Jewish tradition. They say there is a rapture coming every year on almost every Jewish holiday because this is little understood.

Faye Corman - March 13, 2019

While it’s true that we cannot predict the day nor the hour, nor even the month or year in which our Lord will return, we do know, however, that Christ is not going to return to earth until AFTER America (Babylon the great) is judged and utterly destroyed.

I say that based on the SCRIPTURES!

For notice that, after the destruction of Babylon the great in Revelation 18, John said in the following chapter 19,

1. “After these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia unto the Lord our God:

2. “For true and righteous are his judgments; for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.”

7. “Let us be glad, and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath hade herself ready.”

im, genetic engineering (mixing man with pig), Internet 5g of china as we have seen now, technocracy … Technological advances mainly genetic Homen with nacaco, horse homosexuality with zoophilia … Has something to do with the end of time, which is the apex What should I get so I came to an end …? (The greater still increase of genetic advances, Children made in labor, transhumanismo, immortality etc …? It still seems to be still far, what it means like in the days of Noah and sodoma, The industrial revolution also and one of the Babylonians, Then what is its limit, since the revolutions have no end …?

Barry jakobs - February 27, 2019

Hi tim! Amazing read. I recently stumbles upon an article that suggested the third temple was about to be built and that this was the last year. Any updated thoughts on this?

    Tim McHyde - February 27, 2019

    Barry, My article is up to date. There are constant rumors of cornerstones, altars, furniture, prefab construction and others about the Temple. But all this misses that the Muslim Waqf has control now and won’t loose it until the Muslim Arabs and Persians (Iraq) are defeated in the coming Middle East war of Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83.

Jerry lee - February 20, 2019

Hello tim! I was recently watching a string of pastor Paul begleys videos and he seems to think that we’re pretty close to the return. He mentions the locust in Mecca and the rumors of wars and things happening in the holy land. Do you think it would be possible within 2 years? Would love to hear back!

    Tim McHyde - February 20, 2019

    Jerry, Paul Begley is a sensationalist promoting every invented prophecy theory out there for YouTube views/eyeballs. This includes the failed 4 blood moons theory of 2015, the Revelation 12 woman theory of 2017 and much much more. Babylon cannot fall in just any year like 2020.

      Jerry lee - February 20, 2019

      So you believe it will be atleast longer than 2 years?

Yosef Martinus - February 20, 2019

2028 😉 Look at END2028 and with a sound and unbiased mind let the Spirit of the Lord tell you Truth that only He has absolutely (God) that come out of His Mind.

I am 28, Number 28 James White in SuperBowl 52 ( I believe) made a 20 points superbowl world record, also if you honor God like Tim Tebow did back in is college football years and tGod did honor him back in that game called 3:16 game, that is why God can use anything and anyone to do His Will.

Repent, Pray and Fast, Submit to God, Cry out to Him and you will receive what your Hearts desire most, Do His Will and He will Give your True Purpose in this and the next one, Praise Him, in the name of Jesus Christ!, Amen! <3 😉

Michael Rausch - February 14, 2019

No man knows and you are just a man. I woke up long ago its the best thing that ever happened to me. Jesus Christ is my Lord and King, that is all I need or will; ever need. God Bless all my brothers and sisters in Christ especially those that are being persecuted for their faith in him wherever they are in this world.

    Tim McHyde - February 15, 2019

    Michael, the prophets were “just a man” too yet they knew the day and hour when it was close enough for many things. 2000 years ago no man knew as Jesus said. But as we get closer, prophets and people who can count to 1290 (Dan 12:11).

      bonnie - April 3, 2020

      So true Tim. We can see that Daniel knew the 70years were up.

AR Wolfe - February 12, 2019

Hi Tim! I’m a new reader 🙂 just found your site a few weeks back after running into it once before and not knowing how to navigate it haha! After having a look around I just want to say I really appreciate the tremendous amount of work and discipline you’ve given this research and sharing your findings via this site. I have several questions if you would be so good as to answer (forgive me if you’ve already written about them, I’m still learning my way around! And links are always appreciated)
1) I believe somewhere you’ve mentioned the web going down at some point. If I didn’t read that hear I’ve certainly read it elsewhere. Would this be a world wide destruction or shut down of the internet? And would this ever be resurrected as in officially beneath the NWO as opposed to a more furtive control hitherto? I ask because at least two places in Scripture come to mind that seem to imply the whole world is able to watch events or atleast be aware on them in live time I.e. in speaking to those in Judea I believe regarding and when you see the abomination of desolation, and secondly when the two witnesses are slain and the public watch and partake in a disgusting celebration. I reckoned this would indicate the internet must remain up and running world wide or some similar system. For a time most of us thought this would be television, but now with so many no longer having television or subscriptions at any time but merely monitors to run the web off of, I wonder how else the world at large will be privy to these events in real time. I’d love clarification on this thanks!
2) I attended a small home presentation on prophecy over the weekend and heard a number of things I hadn’t before known. A few Id appreciate your take on would be,
A) Macron just created a 10 nation military alliance, basically it’s the advent of an EU military. During the presentation the presenter said this was the formation of ten headed beast. Have you heard of this? What’s your take?
B) Angela Merkel (probably spelt that wrong) Germany’s current leader announced she will be stepping down. It is suspected the Anti-Christ will be the leader to rise up in her place. What are your thoughts?
C) Have you heard of Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj? He has been making the rounds in more charasmatic Pentecostal circles, on Christian TV networks, and prophecy conferences many consider him a prophet of God. I just learned of him and began looking into him. I listened to two sermons he gave and actually was pleasently surprised by the messages there in- prophecies aside, they were Biblically sound. At first I was taken by the fact that he continues to appear as a “Hindu holyman”. I thought why would you consider to appear as such given your conversion? I assume this is a popular question as it has been answered in multiple places that it is due to the fact that his ministry is foremost to those who ascribe to Hinduism. Secondly many are saying you cannot judge what he is wearing as God can use anyone as a mouthpiece. I also thought to myself with “Christianity” having been widely infiltrated by New Age beliefs which has much to do with eastern mysticism that God in His mercy could have very well sent a man who appears as such so that many who fallen away would be receptive to his message. On the other hand I wonder if it’s a guise because the church is so lost and corrupt they would see him and think “Oh he must wise!” Based on appearance alone! I’ve been attempting to find out if he’s made any prophecies and if they’ve failed or come to pass but am unable to find any info on that. What I do seem to find is that he gives more “vague prophecies” prophecies that as some have put it “have an escape” should they not come to pass. For example, he says Trump is from God, giving the US a 4 year grace period to get their houses in order and turn back to Him. He says swift and sudden destruction will follow Trump if fail to turn this nation around. However he also alludes to the fact that God may save us in His mercy should we “succeed” turning from our wicked carnal ways and living obediently. Others say this is too vague and a real prophet of God would give us more concrete means to judge his predictions. I believe this is correct although I’m not sure this man calls himself a phophet or if that’s a title others have given him. Anyway he also speaks of there being places of refuge for saints to turn to during trails and persecution. For instance he has claimed Lancaster CA and Monrovia Falls, NC to be two such places. However research on the NC location show immediate links to Rick Joyner and other known apostates. Very worrisome indeed! If you’ve heard anything about this Sandhu man or these “locations” I’d Certainly like to hear your take.
3) Is not Mystery Babylon to be destroyed very soon here? With all that’s gone on on the world stage in the last few months I’m beginning to believe times jsut about up! I keep pondering the verse “Come out of her my people…” but have faith that is He wants me out He’ll get me out as there’s hardly a way for me to leave by any earthly means at present.

Thanks in advance for your time! Praying for you, your wife and this ministry!

Lenny arnold - February 8, 2019

Hey tim! This was an amazing read if I do say so myself! I recently stumbled on an article that suggested world war 3 would start soon and would cause a whirlwind of events ultimately leading to the rapture, any thoughts? Also are you pre or post trib rapture? Would love to hear back from you!

Bobby Patterson - February 5, 2019

Hey tim! This was a fantastic read! I just have to inquire, I see so many people saying some of these signs are happening now. Do you really think there is no chance of the rapture happening this year or the second coming? 100%?

    Tim McHyde - February 5, 2019

    Bobby, see my reply to Joe.

Ronald McConnell - February 4, 2019

Ok so the 1% happen when? Rapture? And woman escapes to jordan is nothing to do with the 1%? but will be just very hard to do for most?Please give me more insight on this…i am confused clarify

    Tim McHyde - February 5, 2019

    Ronald, did you read the article on <1% of Christians being saved? Where was that unclear to you? Because it teaches it’s not a “when” or an event but a commentary of deception throughout history by Christianity leaving <1% ever qualifying for salvation like Jesus implied even back in the first century, "few are being saved" (Lk 13:23).

Joe pachio - February 4, 2019

Hello sir! I was wondering if you have a second. I hear constantly that it’s gonna happen within months. Are you completely sure it won’t? 100%?

    Tim McHyde - February 5, 2019

    Joe, yes, I’m as sure Jesus can’t come back this year as I am that no other US president will be elected this year to replace Trump. Why? I know the US election laws. It’s not on the schedule with the legal prerequisites to an election such as what years those can happen.

      UI2 - January 20, 2021

      Hi Tim, do you have any details related to this now that there is a replacement? Trying to catch up. Also, I just posted a question about the dates on these posts. They seem to be off as events like the corona virus are discussed in January 2020. Thanks!

        Tim McHyde - January 20, 2021

        UI2, coronavirus was known in January 2020! We just didnt think it would do much beyond China back then.

Bill Davis - February 3, 2019

Something about the temple being built. There are plans drawn up for it and they already hired Priests to make the sacrificial tools. They had a ceremony less than a year ago where they were practicing. Also you are more post trib, Who’s to say that Jesus wont come pre trib. The bible says that right before His return our great leader will be born again. Not saying that is Trump but look deeper into Pence and what his beliefs are. The Rapture is alot closer than what you are writing

    Tim McHyde - February 5, 2019

    Bill, Jesus? Jesus is to say he won’t come pretrib in Mt 24:29-31 where he says he comes “after.” So the rapture is a lot further than you think. Haven’t you noticed pretribber thinking keeps creating rapture dates that keep failing? = further than you think.

    P.S. Trump and Pence are not the Messiah.

Ronald McConnell - January 31, 2019

Another question….so if M.E. war starts in say 2022 it starts the 7 yr countdown so why Jesus can’t come in next 10 yrs?

    Tim McHyde - February 2, 2019

    Ronald, you’re confusing the Damascus prophecy fulfillment with the 70th week start. Nothing in Scripture connects them as the same event. The Damascus destruction must simply come before most of the events of the 70th week can happen. It can come slightly before or slightly after the final Sabbath year cycle begins. If 2022 is right, then it’s slightly before. But the Sabbath year does not move, it’s still 2030.

Ronald McConnell - January 31, 2019

Tim,just read your”only 1% will be saved article:(
So the place of safety in Jordan will have people that won’t be saved?
Are you using the rapture as the 1% saved or….?

    Tim McHyde - February 2, 2019

    Ronald, none of the above?

Bill johnson - January 28, 2019

Such an amazing read! I hear people around the world talking about how we’re so close to the end such as Paul Begley. He has some points and does quote scripture and I have read your article through but do you think there is a 0% chance he returns this year?

    Tim McHyde - January 28, 2019

    Bill, I’m 100% certain Jesus is not coming back this year, just as I was the previous years since 2007. Legal precedents to his return must be fulfilled and they can’t all happen in 12 months, but rather take the better part of seven years. People like Begley constantly predicting the “the end is nigh” miss these prerequisites.

Paul - January 22, 2019

Your calendar is wrong, 2021 AD – 2022 AD = 5978 7 Sabbath /Jubilee ending 2027 AD, year 5984. 2028 AD 5985 begins a new Sabbath year;


    Tim McHyde - January 24, 2019

    Paul, that’s a timeline I have not seen before, has some things right such as paying attention to the sabbath years and 49 year Jubilees (not 50) but many mistakes like “Jubilee years begin in the fall” (yikes) or having Christ die in 31AD not 30. Further, there is no evidence that the Second Coming is tied to Jubilee although it fits a Sabbath year which concludes every one of the 70 weeks including the last one we know Jesus comes in. Plus he misses that the 6000 years of man’s working do not start from creation when he was under God’s government in the garden but when he left the garden to start his own work. His sabbath year cycle and jubilee cycles “based on eclipses” don’t match what I have received based on actual historical tombstones, contracts and coins. It’s not very convincing for me with his approach and assumptions.

RR90 - January 16, 2019

The Yellow Vests in Europe have been organizing bank runs and central banks have been considering development of their own cryptocurrencies. Google Fedcoin, for an example. Many people believe that the creation of a cashless society precedes the implementation of the biblical Mark of the Beast. If bank runs start occurring on a global scale, this could hasten the development of cryptocurrencies by central banks and governments, eager to retain control, would move to outlaw currencies other than the cryptocurrencies created by their central banks. This, in turn, would lead to the development of a global cashless society. Given all of this, the Aadhaar System in India, the so-called “Social Credit System” and biowearables, like the Tech Tattoo produced by a company called Chaotic Moon, the development and implementation of the biblical Mark of the Beast could be sooner than what most people realize. Also, many people believe that AI (Artificial Intelligence) will play a role in the prophecized “giving life unto the image of the Beast”. Just some information that I felt was worth sharing. That’s all.

Mike Anderson - January 15, 2019

I think Tim has grown tired of conspiracy theories, since they can’t compare to the surpassing wisdom of the Bible, but if you have a solid foundation in the Bible, they can actually increase your faith. As Constance Cumbey observed, the plans of the enemy are the mirror image of God’s plans, and if their plans are unfolding, so also are God’s.

In a letter now lost and repudiated, Pike predicted that the third world war would be between the ideologies of Islam and the Christian/Jewish West. According to the plan, this would be the last major war, after which the man of peace would unite the people against all forms of extremism. It is quite possible that this war is currently being fomented in Europe with immigration, and since we know its purpose we are free to not become angry about it. I think Islam may survive in name, but mostly it will merge with the new religion, lending it the elements of strict obedience and state violence. When might this happen? Perhaps it would come from the anger over the destruction of the Arab/Muslim nations, but I’m not sure.

Alecssandro d'ávila - January 14, 2019

Tim, what do you think of Islam, believe you can dominate the whole world as some say, Worldwide implementation of sharia? It is also seeing, like me, the rise of neo-conservatism in the West with Europe and Israel (Zionist), and the rise of the East (China, Russia, Arab countries) with the Islamization of Europe and the whole East,

Just as Israel’s own opponents and Israel’s (Zionist) government along with the Obama administration financed the Arab spring revolution by promoting wars and the following immigration of Arabs into Europe, where the Israeli government itself supported this We are now seeing the rise of Western and European neo-conservatism along with Zionist Israel nuam dispute against the Middle East and Eastern countries, promoting a world war 3 West vs. East (Old order (Communism) For a new (another communism disguised as neo-conservatism (where it was created by Trotskyists, creating this false right and reaching places where Communism did not reach) just as it was in the letters of Albert Pike, Believes that Islam will dominate and persecute Christians and Jews even the history showing the opposite? All the so-called neo-conservative governments were and are formentadores of the wars, Iraq, Vie tnã … Except Obama who was a necessary predecessor to the successor rise of the far right in the West, Believes: that the mark of the beast will be for the whole world? Sharia world? Is Zionism a conspiracy theories?

   Only the US embassy in Israel along with Brazil was necessary for the world rise of the extreme right Zionists and the world division of the world in 2 blocks (West vs. East)

  Blue Scissors = Chaos
  Red Scissors = Order

   First we will see this world rise of new technologies together with wars (negative Delta) and then came order (Delta positive)? ex
  # 3.5 Delta positive
  # 3.5 Delta negative

Come soon #GT.

Peachy - January 10, 2019

Assuming the UN is “the beast” then it would appear as though Jesus won’t be coming before 2030 indeed. In 2015 pretty much all nations signed the “sustainable goals” for the year 2030…that’s when there will be “one world power.”

Holly - January 3, 2019

Any thoughts on the asteroid that NASA is predicting (96% certainty) to hit on July 21, 2027?


Could this be an end time event?

    Tim McHyde - January 3, 2019

    Holly, by 2026 the earth’s orbit will change after being pelted by Wormwood and that asteroid will no longer be a threat.

    Mike Anderson - January 5, 2019

    The asteroid is fictional as far as I can tell: “A hypothetical asteroid impact scenario will be presented… Although this scenario is realistic in many ways, it is completely fictional and does NOT describe an actual potential asteroid impact.” https://cneos.jpl.nasa.gov/pd/cs/pdc17/

Jim Peterson - December 31, 2018

Tim: I always look forward to your New Years addition. Much to the disappointment of my Evangelical (AoG) friends Ive been able to show then that the biblical evidence of purgatory is almost greater than the pre-trib rapture. It gets then to read their Bible and not just parrot what they are told.

Mark - December 30, 2018

I hope He comes sooner than that, but if He doesn’t, that allows many more people to get saved. Its a good thing!

The people Jesus says He never “knew” are not really Christians are they?. They have a ‘form’ of godliness, but “deny its power” This fits pretty well with the so-called Christians who are ‘works’, or ‘sacrifice’ oriented. They assume it is by their sacrificing or by their ‘own’ power/works that God ‘owes’ them their salvation.

My dad was a Jehovah’s Witness and I can remember going to the assemblies as a kid before 1975. I can’t remember a single witness who didn’t assume the end would come that year. It was a reality for them and a big disappointment when it didn’t happen. My dad left the religion shortly after. Many other Christian denominations, or individuals have predicted dates and been disappointed, which is why I suspect we are not supposed to set dates of His return, but He never said we couldn’t set dates He ‘wouldn’t’ return. You have a much better odds in that forecast. : )

I think the best reason we should always be ready is that none of us ever knows when ‘we’ will return to God. We have little control over that and it seems to be the best reason to always stay awake and be ready.

Johan Pretorius - December 29, 2018

Hello Tim, as always I enjoyed this updated article. I have noticed there are mainly two groups of people normally reacting to this article:

1) The disappointed readers who are hoping for a longer period before the end times come to achieve certain goals like finishing school, college, university, marriage etc. These are mostly younger people who have long term plans and still see this current world as a challenge and looking forward long term and are excited about the future.

2) Then you get to the older readers who would like the end times to be sooner due to maybe health reasons, financial difficulties, unhappy marriage live, loneliness, loss of loved ones etc. Normally this group has reached a stage whereby they have had enough of this life and would just like to get out of this age ( I relate to this group and experience the same issues they are going through).

So it is very interesting to go through the comments that the people are posting and to try and understand their situations and feelings regarding this article.

The main thing I have noticed in the last months is of some people’s replies to comments placed by other people giving them advice and encouragement on their issues which is very encouraging for me to see the level of growth of some of your readers on this site. I do not know if these people are perhaps part of your fellowship groups or involved in some other ways but the level of their understanding and knowledge when replying to other people impresses me. I am not going to give any names as examples but I want to thank them for what they are doing and also it takes some workload of you Tim not to reply to each and every query or question being asked regarding your writings. This gives me a feeling that your and Katrina’s ministry is growing and more and more people are grasping and understanding what Yeshua preached and what law of Yehovah requires.

I am going through a tough time at the moment mentally but one thing I keep on doing is praying as best as I can and stick to Katrina’s hourly alarm clock, it does wonders to bring you back to Yehovah. I need to find a way to overcome this slump I am in at the moment and one way is to reread your articles on a regular basis including the comments to get some answers and encouragement to keep on going.

To all the supporters and regular readers, a new year is starting and the clock keeps on ticking closer and closer to 2022, 2024, 2026 and 2030. Let us keep on assisting each other and let’s hope we can escape all these things.

Tim and Katrina, keep up the good work and looking forward to more encouraging articles and especially you tube vlogs.

Bless you.

    Julie Fuller - May 4, 2019

    What do you mean Katrina’s hourly alarm clock..I’m curious.?

      Johan Pretorius - May 5, 2019

      Hello Julie, Katrina came up with a very useful tool whereby you set your phone alarm to go of every hour. Every time this happens you stop what you are doing and give a short prayer to Yehovah. This prayer can cover anything you would like to highlight at that point, if ou are stuck in traffic, you ask for patience or if you are in a difficult situation at work and need guidance from Yehovah or if you treated somebody bad and feel terrible about it then ask for forgiveness etc. As you can see it is a great tool to keep you in touch with Yehovah on a regular basis even if you do not have issues, it is a reminder that Yehovah is with us every moment and not only when it suit’s us. Hope this helps, if you need more advice please ask Tim and Katrina for more details, it certainly changed my life and brought me closer to Yehovah.

Nes - December 29, 2018

So youre 100% sure that the end is going to come in 2026 and the lords return in 2030 or is it a possibility

    Tim McHyde - December 29, 2018

    Nes, I’m 100% convinced because of my several personal dreams which I never asked for. But you should not be as they are my dreams and not yours. Seek your own confirmation from God (and don’t make any big decisions based on this until they are confirmed) is what I teach in my 2026 article.

      Cordia Short - November 19, 2020

      I have a question, why am I seeing blood on my own hands while watching those two fiery, mean male and female gorillas dancing in blood as they were celebrating??
      That tells me in my dream that it is “around the corner?”

Ray Oberhardt - December 29, 2018

If anyone asks me about the timing of Christ’s return, I say well, we maybe have another 20 years, I don’t think we have another 100 or even 50 years, so I’d agree about the 2030 earliest date. But, I could be wrong.

There is one thing I’m puzzled about. I looked up the Greek used in Rev 20 for the Millennium – chillia which means thousands – plural, while for exactly one thousand used elsewhere it was chillias. The church through the ages has mostly taken that to mean the Christian era. Then after the Millennium, the devil was loosed. I think that the devil is loosed now – look around. It’s strange that the devil is to be loosed again after another 1000 years and after reigning with Christ, people could again be deceived. I think the Bible consistently intimates that Christ will return and we will forever be with the Lord. But, being 75 yo, I’ll know within 25 years.

Since Rev 13 identifies the geographic location of the beast empire, the Middle East (Leopard (Grecian empire), Bear(Persia), Lion(Babylon)), and other verses identifying the Islamic Caliphate as the 7th head that was wounded (Ottoman empire dismembered 1924) which comes back as the 8th, I think we’ll see that happen in 1924 on the 100th anniversary. Erdogan is working to make that happen, supported by Europe and the USA. That’s one big event I’m expecting. But I could be wrong.

Also the verse in Rev 17 – “…The beast that was, and is not, and yet is.” The Caliphate was an empire, officially it doesn’t exist but yet it does exist as Islam, united by religion and Sharia. I don’t know anything else that fits as well.

    Mark - December 30, 2018

    I always was puzzled at the release of the Devil after the 1000 year reign of Christ.

    I think people mistake that millennium as a time when there will be no more death or pain and that’s just not so. It says a person who fails to live to 100 will be considered accursed and an 100 year old will still be considered a youth. (Isaiah 65:20) People will still die and the nations will have disputes that the King, Jesus Christ will settle. (Isaiah 2:4)

    My belief is that when Jesus rules from Jerusalem, He will be sitting on David’s throne and will rule the entire world by the Law of Moses. Israel will have 1000 years of relative peace and security, the likes of which the world has never known, yet when the Devil is let out, he deceives the entire world into attacking Jesus and the resurrected saints. Their number is like the sand of the seashore. This will only prove, forever, that sinful flesh cannot keep the Law of Moses, even under the most ideal of conditions. It’s sad but not entirely unexpected.

Casey - December 26, 2018

Hi Tim. Ever since reading your article on why you believe in 2030 the world could end i have been very sad. I am about to graduate high school in 2019 and i always say, wow i will not have much of a life to live since most likely the world is going to end in 2030. You say you offer no proof but i think your dreams are some what proof and comfirmation. Plus you said as it get closer your dreams start to unfold. That really says it all.

    Elizabeth Becker - December 28, 2018


    When I was your age I think I still believed in a pre-trib rapture. The imminency of Jesus’ return without warning scared me more and I remember feeling the same thing as you. I think all young people feel the way you feel regardless of what version of the rapture they believe in.

    If I can be of comfort to you, the world isn’t ending in 2030. Jesus is returning in 2030 to set everything the way it should be. Even tho you are young, I am sure you are aware of how the world is not right. Jesus is coming to set things right. Until then, keep living and loving. Those are two things Jesus wants. To give us life abundantly and for us to love. Peace be with you.

      Casey - January 3, 2019

      Thanks for replying Elizabeth! I hope you are correct! Tim one more question sorry for bothering again but do you think that your dreams can also be a sign of something thats different other than prophcies?

        Tim McHyde - January 3, 2019

        Casey, I don’t understand. I will answer your previous question that my dreams are only proof or confirmation for me. I share them for others to seek their own proof and confirmation. We each can get to see God’s answer to prayer and guidance in our life with practice.

    Blaze - December 28, 2018

    Personally Tim, I never understood your complaint about having more time. It never made logical, rational sense to me, especially since you have those very same qualities.

      Tim McHyde - December 29, 2018

      Blaze, although there are some exciting developments coming in the end time (healings, miracles, gospel of the kingdom, unity, etc.), I know very well it will be very different from the comfortable, convenient, free, leisurely time we enjoy now in our rich, developed Western democracies. If I’m honest, I admit I would like the end to come later than I think so I can enjoy more of this. Perhaps that will change as I become less Laodicean but also I don’t ever want to desire the day of the Lord (Amos 5:18).

      Rachael - December 29, 2018

      I understand what you’re saying Blaze. I felt the same way. I thought Amos 5:18 was meant for those who were mocking the return of Jesus? I’m not understanding why anyone wouldn’t hope for all the horrible suffering etc to end in this world?

lynn - November 19, 2018

enjoyed the read, disagree with some of it, buts thats ok. i believe Danials 70th week still has some mysteries left for us! Where is the ’10 days” you spoke of located? My take is simple; the return of Israel =1948 + 80 yrs (Pslams 90:10 )or ‘the days of mans life that ends with pain and sorrow “and then we fly away” = 2028. —I would give or take a couple of years to that date.

    Tim McHyde - November 19, 2018

    Lynn, 10 days is simply Tishrei 1 (Rapture/Resurrection/End of Trib) to Tishrei 10 (Armageddon/Day of the LORD) just as I linked all over the place. As far as 1948 + 80 = 2028, yes that’s simple and like all other date calculations so far, overlooking what Jesus said about no man knows from the written word available so far in his day which yours is based on.

    Darlynn - June 11, 2019

    Yes a 70 yr generation or 80 if by strength..but look at King Hezekiah and the extension by Grace of 15 years to his life… there is much prophecy in King Hezekiah to be learned about end time events. 1948 land of Israel 70 yr generation 2018… 1967 Jerusalem 50 year Jubilee 2018…..God said in Genesis He gives man 120 yrs ie Jubilee years…5778/2018 is the 120th Jubilee year…many rabbis have confirmed that the true calendar is off by 1 year so this year 5779/2019 has not started yet and we are still in 5778/2018… a Jubilee year. Every criteria has been met for a snatching away event to happen but if we are in an extended Grace period “so that all may come” then 1948 + 85 = 2033 which Jesus says will see the coming of the son of man…that is an event that ALL will see him coming on the clouds…that is not talking about the snatching away… so then 2033-7 =2026 .. at the last Trump could be at the end of 2nd term presidency or a child of Trump has run for president and won…one thing is for certain, the third temple preparations are almost complete and they have been sacrifcing for the last 4 years. Obama has been visiting the Seat of Satan ie Pergamon in Berlin every year for 10 years and it has been closed for the last 5 years and was to reopen this year but now it is delayed until 2024…does he know something? the second term of Trump? understand that Obama showed us who he was at the acceptance speech in Denver when he had them replicate the throne of zeus in the stadium and put his podium in the center to accept the nomination for president… Hitler did the same thing in Germany… he just recently on Passover gave another speech to the up and coming young European leaders like he was campaigning… something to think about.

iGreg - October 16, 2018

The anti-Christ has been revealed, he is Satan himself taking his place in the churches.

    Tim McHyde - October 17, 2018

    iGreg, except it says Satan gives power to the Antichrist according to Revelation 13:4, so they can’t be the same person.

    Harry Rogers - December 26, 2018


    Certainly, at first glance, it would be easy to assume your notions are correct but as you develop a deep understanding by carefully reading scripture of whom the Antichrist will be you can be sure it is not Satan. Rather, this beast – the one we call the Antichrist, (man of lawlessness – son of perdition) and his accompanying false prophet does not fit your notion well.

    Instead, you can see the Antichrist is a man, empowered by Satan who know his time is short, to bring a man who is empowered to commit all evil against mankind and will, with all effort, work to destroy all Christians he can find.

    All of this to say that the Antichrist cannot be Satan because it in no way fits the narrative found in Mathew’s olivet discourse, Thessalonians, and of course, Daniel.

    Do not be deceived. Many Christians are asleep and in real danger of completely missing the escape of the soon to come end of days. Those that do will be surely persecuted to the point of death and torture. Most Christians will cave to cultural pressure and deceptive teachings that lure them away from salvation in Christ.

    Please do not be one of them.

    Be awake and alert. Pay attention with an open mind and willing to accept truth even if it challenges our faulty assumptions – this takes much backbone and willingness to accept beliefs that we are heavily vested in.

    Sadly, most are unwilling to part of with notions that they have spent their careers, lives, and name on because it os much easier to believe a lie than it is the hard truth.

    Be well.

Pepper Boone - October 3, 2018

The third temple will not be built on the Temple Mount. There is a distinct possibility that the ancient temples were not located where the Dome of the Rock currently sits. There is strong evidence that their location was to the north of the Dome and that the sacrificial altar inside the Dome was the one that Solomon built in “the middle of the court” to handle the thousands of special sacrifices which he offered to the Lord on the day The First Temple was dedicated (2 Chronicles 7:7). If that is so, then The Third Temple could be built north of the Dome of the Rock, putting the Dome in the Court of the Gentiles. This may well be the solution the Antichrist will come up with when he negotiates a peace between the Jews and the Arabs (Daniel 9:27).

    Tim McHyde - October 4, 2018

    Pepper, you’re forgetting one thing: the Jews decide where to build their temple to YHVH, not Christians who think they know better.=)

Tamara Derry - June 6, 2018

Have you ever considered that if you are wrong, you will have led all your “followers” astray?

We will all face judgement one day. I pray that all eyes are open to the truth. Always study scripture and pray to discern the truth. If we ask, the Lord will guide us to the truth. We must trust in the Lord…He alone knows when the end will be although we are given clues to know when we are drawing near.

May God Bless each and every one of you.


    Tim McHyde - June 6, 2018

    Tamara, I don’t have followers; I explain what Jesus said so people can follow him. He taught a rapture gathering “after the tribulation of those days” (Mt 24:29-31), not the pretrib rapture invented by men. The NT warns about being led astray by men with bad fruit or extra-biblical teaching, in other words, teaching just like the “pretrib rapture” that is not in the Bible that says the rapture can come any year ignoring the Biblical prerequisites.

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church - April 15, 2018

Christ is working well with Trump in making America Republican Christian which is good news. We need a better society so that the laws will be more effective. For comments, call us at 301-869-1780. Thank you! We voted for Republican Trump well and Trump is a Good Republican Christian President for America and the world too!

Mark - March 2, 2018

Hello David,

Yes, I agree, those are corresponding scriptures and events that are soon to be fulfilled in our life time. currently we are winding up the time of the beginning of sorrows and are about thirteen years away from the end of the sixth day! once we get into the 2020’s that when the rubber meets the road, “show time” as every area of life will escalate to epidemic proportion, including the weather.



Mark - March 2, 2018

Hello Slayer,

Slayer, Please, be careful with the “WORDS OF ALMIGHTY GOD” read and study the words carefully as if your life depends on it, for some it could mean the difference between life and death, GOD has said my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. the comment you made about JESUS CHRIST not knowing when HE will return is not correct, please read it again carefully. JESUS said in Matthew 24: 35-36 ” HEAVEN AND EARTH SHALL PASS AWAY BUT MY WORDS SHALL NOT PASS AWAY BUT OF THAT DAY AND HOUR KNOWETH NO MAN, NO, NOT THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN BUT MY FATHER ONLY. You are correct, it is most important to accept JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOR.



Anthony Ianosel - March 1, 2018

Hi Tim,

A few days ago, I noted that Billy Graham’s website posted an article about Yeshua’s Second Coming, and the article stated the “sequence” which included a reference to Lev. 25. about the “Jubilee” (presumably 40 Jubs from Yeshua’s resurrection in 30 AD. According to Dr. Graham’s reckoning of time, you ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, and your own biblical research an RECKONING of time should be taken very seriously by all who hear you.
Here’s Billy Graham’s website posting the aforesaid article about 2d Coming:


***….” Jesus will come to raise the dead (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17), to judge the world (2 Timothy 4:1) and to transform the created order, which at present “groans” as it waits for the sons of God to experience the redemption of their bodies (Romans 8:18-23). In 1 Corinthians 15:22-28; Paul walks us through what will happen when the Lord returns.
First, Jesus will raise the dead. The trumpet will sound to mark the final Year of Jubilee (Leviticus 25:8-13). Jesus will raise the dead simply by commanding “Come forth!” just as when He called “Lazarus, come out!” (John 11:43).”… ****

David Price - February 26, 2018


Good Point! Never looked at it like that.

I also like to compare 1Cor 15:51,52 and Rev 10:7

1 Corinthians 15:51-52 King James Version (KJV)
51 Behold, I shew you a MYSTERY; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Revelation 10:7 King James Version (KJV)
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the MYSTERY of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.


Mark - February 24, 2018

Dennis, Tim is right, Jesus was speaking to the generation of people of that day regarding (this generation shall not pass) which was fullfilled in 70AD, If you can see it, Jesus sometime spoke a lot at one time with different fullfillment times of the subject matter.

one of many proofs that JESUS cannot return to earth anytime is Revelation ch six, JESUS is the only one who can open the seals, notice carefully where HE is as HE opens the seals, HE is in Heaven not of earth, HE cannot return to earth until HE has opened all the seals at lease, then and only then can HE prepare for HIS RETURN.


Dennis - February 21, 2018

LordJesus said this generation will not pass away before all these come to pass I was born in 1948 the same year as the fig tree nation began Lord Jesus told his deciples parable of the fig tree a generation Psalms 90, 10 is 70 years So in May this year is 70 years Israel began . Our world is in termoil with weather, morality, Satan worship , greed, xenophobia, racism, Lord Jesus can come anytime he is God doesn’t need a timetable or this and that to be in place, I believe you need to understand this.

    Tim McHyde - February 21, 2018

    Dennis, I used to understand it that way, too. Then I realized that when he said “this generation” each time he was referring to the audience standing in front of him, on whom judgment fell one wicked generation later: 40 years in 70 AD. The rest of the prophecy of Mt 24 will come to pass in the 70th week regardless of who is alive or when they were born =).

Mark - February 10, 2018

don’t expect the end of the (sixth day) by counting from the birth of JESUS CHRIST, rather begin counting from HIS ministry, death, resurrection and ascension. that will put HIS return around 2031 as the very possible return date which is not the day or the hour but the year of HIS return which would have to match all the signs that must be present when HE does return, especially the signs mentioned in the gospels.

The ministry of JESUS CHRIST did not last( 3-1/2 years) they had HIM on the cross about one year into HIS ministry.


Tony - January 23, 2018

Thank you for this interesting article. What do you think about the decision to speed up the moving process of the US embassy? Apparently it’s now going to be complete by late 2019, Instead of the original 2020-2021.

Does this change anything in your opinion?

Is there anything that could possibly happen for our current cycle to be the one that contains the tribulation with Jesus returning in 2023?

Thank you.

    Tim McHyde - January 23, 2018

    Tony, Arab provocation coming a year earlier only helps for 2024-2030, yes?

      Tate - May 15, 2018

      Hey! Just wondering if you feel anything can change in this cycle to where Jesus returns in 2023! Also please explain why you feel there isn’t enough time before 2023 for those prerequisites to happen for this cycle!! Thank you!!

        Tim McHyde - May 15, 2018

        Tate, no change and a M.E. nuclear war that has been delayed now 45 years since 1973 doesn’t change and happen overnight or even in a couple years as this article explains, but maybe four years in 2022 which is just in time for 2024-2030.

          Tate - May 16, 2018

          Makes sense. How long when these prerequisites start happening do you feel they will take to complete?

          Zachary Miller - May 17, 2018


          I’m assuming the “prerequisites” you’re referring to involve the events which precede the Sabbath year (of 2024)? If so, Tim speaks about in this article: https://escapeallthesethings.com/2022-dreams/.

          If not, Tim has a wealth of information (on the site) pertaining to events and their timing (during the Sabbath cycle–if 2024-2030 is the final one).

          Tate - May 17, 2018

          Awesome can you provide a link I can’t accessnanything

Slayer - January 22, 2018

Yeah you are tooting your horn, but thats ok. People been tooting for 1000;s of years. Same things happen, nothing. You have no clue when Jesus will come, even he don’t only the FATHER, or did you miss reading that? His grace is sufficient. Try to witness to those who are without Christ, try to lead them to the Father to be birthed into his kingdom. That is what its all about anyway ,now isn’t it. He will come when God says… Its time thrust in the cycle the harvest is ready. I wish it was today, so I pray come quickly Lord Jesus, even now. We will get there soon enough, those who accept Jesus that is. Those who really know him. Relationship. That is far more important that prophecy. But,,,, prophecy counts to.. 3 fold blessing just for reading Revelations amen?> LOL

Russell G. Hopkins - December 31, 2017

Tim, have you taken in to account Jesus age at his assension into heaven? Wasn’t Jesus 33 years old? so year 2000 represents 2000 from the “birth” of Jesus, then add his age 33 years old! 2033, if the end of age is about 2000 years, then maybe that 2000 years should be measured from his death, not his birth? Does this idea have any merit?

PS, I’m still alive, and hanging in there, and I’m not planning on ending my life any time now. Just thought you would like to know that, and I thank you for you words of encouragement back last Aug 2017.

    Tim McHyde - December 31, 2017

    Russell, Jesus did not have a 3½ year ministry or die at 33 years old. He died at age 31½ in 30 AD after around a one year or 62 week ministry as the church fathers said and was believed until Eusebius floated the idea popular today.

Tenderock777 - December 30, 2017

I was one of the first to buy your book many years ago. We talked some back then. I plan to buy a new book just to get caught up with your updates and changes. The greatest TRUTH you teach is that there is no pre-trib rapture…no imminence…and certainly no rapture for at least 42 months or 3 and a half years. Every day that passes will not bring us any closer to His return in the fact that these 3 and a half years must first start and then be completed for Jesus to return(rapture/resurrection) The 2 witnesses must preach(42 months)…the beast must rule and reign(42 months)…Jerusalem must be trodden down(42 months)…Israel must flee into the wilderness(42 months) satan and his angels must fight Michael and his angels and be cast down to the earth 42 months(beast kingdom) The beast kingdom must prevail, wear down ,overcome the saints..the church…the elect for 42months. No…we will not know the day and hour because the days(not the number of days but the hours of the day) will be shortened and time will be no longer. These things and time frame MUST come to pass before any rapture/resurrection or second coming. You must my brother continue to preach it from the housetops because you are called just like me to get this TRUTH(JESUS/the WORD) out!!! But just like the messages to the 7 churches Jesus not only gave the Good(to most) he gave the “I have these things against you.” Brother we have both grown and changed over the many years. We have had to change a few things as we saw like the disciples more understanding as Jesus taught us now by the comforter and teacher the Holy Ghost. We know more. If you write ANYTHING in error those reading your book and posts just may toss out the Great TRUTH about the Pre Trib lie. Please and I hope you will talk to me again like we did many years ago and discuss these others differences. The FULL TRUTH must now get to the people. The window is shorter than we both understand but not 3 and a half years shorter till the Rapture/Resurrection/Second Coming.

George - December 30, 2017

I would not rule out a pre-tribulation first harvest and a post-tribulation second harvest. Study the little book of Ruth for how that takes place. Also, beware of linking the word can’t with Jesus, for he can do anything, including prove wrong Tim and others who seem to think that only they know the truth. God bless you, Tim for your well-intentioned discourse. You may be right, but you may be wrong.

    Tim McHyde - December 30, 2017

    George, you are actually correct there are two harvests or two raptures like you see in Ruth. However you have the timing wrong. There is only one rapture/quickening for this age of righteous (first 6000 years) and one for those who choose God’s way in the next period, after the Milennium. That’s why there are three resurrections yet

Jonathon Bevers - December 30, 2017

I don’t believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture as it is contradictory to Scripture.
Mark 13:33 “Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” !!! Only God knows the exact timing of things but we are to watch the signs to know the time is nigh. Because we don’t know the exact timing we need to get right and warn others to as well so we don’t miss Gods Grace!!!
I fear for the Pre-Trib believers not being prepared for Tribulation. Jesus said we will face persecution in His name and that men and nations will be against us for His namesake!!! We need to believe in Scripture directly and not men’s interpretation of The Bible. Satan likes to mix half truths with lies confuse us!!!
Scripture directly and praying for discernment are the best ways to not be deceived. 2 Thessalonians 2:2 is a reference to the Day of the Lord. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” Matthew 24 is filled with signs that must happen before Jesus’s Second Coming on the Day of the Lord!!! Matthew 24:29 “”Immediately after the tribulation…” Matthew 24:30 “Jesus’s Second Coming to raise the dead in Christ and Rapture The Body (Church) who endured through Tribulation. Tribulation is 7 years with first 42 months a false peace, that I believe begins with Peace Treaty with Israel. Then 42 months Great Tribulation (Satan’s Wrath on Christians). Satan will enter at the midpoint of tribulation and will be the Anti-Christ (Satan in the Flesh mirroring Jesus Christ God in the Flesh)!!! Satan is given 42 months not 7 years!!! Then we have Revelation 6:9-11 which are Christ’s Christian martyrs throughout history asking God when they will be avenged! God answers and says after their future brethren are killed as they were. They are referred to in Revelation 7:13-14 in a vision given to John. These are they which made their robes white with the Blood of the Lamb who come out of Great Tribulation!!! They are the last Christian martyrs before the Day of the Lord. Those beheaded by guillotine at the hands of the Anti-Christ during Great Tribulation!!! Revelation 2:10 is also a reference to them. “Fear none of these things which though shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried, and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” !!!
I’m not going by man’s interpretation of The Bible but Scripture directly. I pray these message is received in Jesus Christ’s name. I say pray for the best but prepare for the worst!!! Many will witness the reveal of The Anti-Christ and fear they missed The Rapture!!! This is a deception to get some to lose faith. If you still believe in Pre-Tribulation Rapture, I ask one favor. If your Raptured great you don’t have to deal with it but I ask if you aren’t raptured and witness the reveal of The Anti-Christ in the Third Temple in Jerusalem please consider the the Scriptural Truth of a Post-Tribulation Pre Wrath Rapture. God never promises us from Tribulation but that we who endure through The Tribulation having been Baptized fully submerged in Jesus Christ’s name, repented, and kept His Commandments will be Raptured after the reveal, “Immediately after the tribulation…” I know some make a common mistake of not separating the Tribulation from God’s Wrath. Tribulation, specifically Great Tribulation (Satan’s Wrath on Christians) and last 42 months of Tribulation are seperate from God’s Wrath. We who endured are on The Day of the Lord after the dead in Christ are raised!!! God Bless!!!

shannon campbell - November 13, 2017

Tim, I can agree the Rapture is not yet. Great Information you put out have a blessed day.

Sam Miller - November 5, 2017

Timothy J Arnold

Your end time enthusiast friend may be giddy about thinking he knows when the rapture will occur but if his source is news clippings, photo images, and maps, as you say, then its no wonder he still thinks the rapture is pre trib because he’s looking in the wrong place.

You should continue reading Tim’s articles and buy his book. You’ll discover that your plan of serving your church may not get you the result you’re hoping for.

Fortunately, Tim has done all the work for us of looking in the right place. His room is filled with cut out and taped together bible verses. Not a single headline, youtube video or magazine article in the mix.


Timothy J Arnold - November 4, 2017

I have been a born-again Christian since 1982 and honestly made that decision born out of the anxiety and fear of End-Times teaching from the pulpit. I joined work in the ministry 10 years later and for the past quarter century have seen the hearts of many respected believers and bible teachers rise in hope, then sink in desperation when another set of Fall Feasts came and went without a rapture.

I have seen that a “not yet” approach to rapture expectancy can lead to a spiritual malaise rife with the temptations to backslide. And to be certain, I have. But what I have to remember in the midst of my fallen and backslidden state, is that I didn’t put myself in God’s hands. “No man comes to the Father except by Me” (John 14:6) I, therefore, am seemingly unable (being a man) to take even myself out of the Father’s hand (John 10:29) It isn’t by my power, strength, or might that I have salvation in Him, but only by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6) My faith comes by hearing and hearing by the World of God (Romans 10:17). Not works, that any man should boast (Ephesians 2:9).

A friend of mine is an End-Times prophecy enthusiast. When virtually invisible world events and arcane celestial signals begin to raise his expectations of a pre-trib rapture, he and others sharing his ferver become almost “giddy”. Almost a smug self-satisfaction that THEY understand and everyone else just doesn’t get it.

I don’t know, call me a cynic, but I have to hope that the signs are supposed to be easier to see to the child-like believer than some room strewn with news clippings, photo images, and maps connected with a crazy spider web of red string like right out of a scene from the movie, “A Beautiful Mind” Such work on so many different levels seems exhausting and distracting. And what does it profit? Will anyone follow us on our mind-numbing trip through a maze of factoids, star charts, and newspaper clippings? Will any of that manifest faith? Or does it just confirm the unbeliever’s suspicions that Christians are just nutty and wild-eyed?

My Christian philosophy, if I am close to Him and if I don’t get distracted, I will see the signs. But in the mean-time I just shut up and serve my church, my family, my friends, and my neighbors.

christiaan - November 1, 2017

Hi Tim, your article is the truth and i believe it, but there is this channel called Endtime dream and vision and they say something about the rapture on the 4th of November this year. I know that they are false , but why do people keep trying to make these predictions and what do you think will happen on the 4th of november. Here is the link if you would like to see it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1PpOOzPQeU

    Tim McHyde - November 3, 2017

    Christiaan, nothing predicted ever happens–always what was not predicted. People make these predictions because they think they are watchmen who have something from God to share and warn others…not thinking it through that the warnings are useless without instructions from God on what to do and God’s help to do it.

Loree Lilygreen - October 26, 2017

I don’t believe the writer of this article can know that Jesus is not coming back this year or this decade. He sounds almost as bad as those who say he will return on a certain date. Of course Jesus could return this year, he could return before i finish writing this. I do know however that the signs Jesus gave are there for us to see. He told us to watch. He said when you see these things happening look up for your redemption is near. If he does not come back soon then God help us all. The world grows darker everyday. His return is our Blessed hope. Our only hope. I will continue to watch and wait. There is a crown for those who love his appearing. Come Lord Jesus come!

    Tim McHyde - October 26, 2017

    Loree, he did not tell us to watch (modern English), he told us to watch (old English) = stay alert, don’t fall asleep and backslide.

    What I’m doing is not magic nor a prediction like the others you falsely compare me to. This is why I consistently succeed while they consistently fail, now for ten years in a row successfully. It’s simple logic. If A must happen before B, then B can’t happen unless you’ve seen A.

    Your rejection of this logical concept seems highly emotion-based. I’ve seen many who desperately need to hold onto a hope of a imminent rapture out of this terrible world. They must ignore logic and 1900 years of zero “rapture at any moment” due to the cognitive dissonance it creates against their hopeful, but sadly false, belief in a pretrib, imminent rapture.

Cody carver - September 16, 2017

Why is everybody saying that the world is going to end on sept 23 this year is that true?

    Tim McHyde - September 16, 2017

    Cody, nope, Sept 23 is nothing.

Kristiana - May 24, 2017

Tim, do you believe Obama is the antichrist? He will be going to Berlin on May the 25th while Trump is also going there. They are definately against each other and this concerns me….should I be concerned? I’ve heard people say that this will start NWO but I don’t know.

      Milionea Toluao - December 26, 2017

      Well Tim,

      You’re exactly right!

      “For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

lorenzo - May 11, 2017

2030 sounds about right; things are just starting to heat up around this time, but our world as we know it definitely has to get a ton worse before any chance of the Lord’s return. I find His coming both terrifying and exciting, I know I may be killed for my faith, or live out a terrible existance for a period, but after it is all over I get to be with Him, perfectly, forever, and all the other saints. No more pain or suffering.
And that will be the ultimate existence.
I also believe the Babylon city is New York, but time will tell.
Bless Y’all!

Sue W - May 10, 2017

Janne, many find it hard to talk about death let alone accept it.
Some though look forward to it due to suffering.
May you be greatly blessed with a peaceful time and seeing Yeshua’s face “in a twinkling of an eye”.
Love and prayers and I hope I get to see you there!

Janne La Foy - May 9, 2017

I have a lot to learn about the end times…I know they will be terrible and I worry about the innocents…I also worry about the ones that live their lives not knowing God…actually reject him… I’m not long for this world and will welcome death and rebirth in Heaven…

    Janne, I understand, but there is no reason to worry. Unlike everyday salvation that many miss acquiring before they die, the end times promises in Mt 24:14 to bring the saving Gospel of the Kingdom to everyone on the planet before it comes. They will be warned and able to be saved. Elijah will make sure of it. Otherwise God’s end time escape plan is not very good!

what about the bill that Israel just passed?
Will that change anything?

Tim, I started watching bible prophecy teachers on TV in the summer of 2000 when I was 12…Hal Lindsey was the first one to be specific. I was terrified with all the stuff I heard, “the end is just around the corner ” or “the last days are fast approaching” and numerous of predictions year after year or any time a natural disaster happened, “this is it!, Jesus is coming soon” Id always worry i would never make it to my 30’s and here I am 17 YEARS later at age 29. I find myself listening to these people and living in hear and thinking my life is hopeless and to not plan for the future…but here I am realizing that 17 years gave gone by and none of them have been right
