Why I’m Convinced The End Begins in 2026—And What You Can Do About It

[I'm only releasing this information to supporters:] Since learning in 2001 that Yeshua must return in a Sabbath year, I've had to rule out three consecutive Sabbath year cycle windows for the final 7 years (2003-2009, 2010-2016, 2017-2023). This same insight enabled me to easily rule out every date-setting prophecy theory along the way, bringing comfort to many scared readers. With the next possible window for the 70th week already less than 7 years away (2024-2030), I'm ready to share why I believe, based on the real end time sign of Mt 24:14, that this can be the one. If it is, the nasty birth pains (WW3 + Wormwood) would start near its middle in 2026 and Yeshua would return at its end in 2030. Why am I now sharing a “doomsday year” myself and how am I not a “hypocrite” for doing so? How is my 2026 different from what prophecy theory date setters have done? What about "no man knows the day or hour"? Read on to understand what has changed, why I'm so convinced about 2026 and, most importantly, what the Bible says to do if the end is indeed coming in your lifetime.

I guess it’s pretty hopeless to wish for more time, I guess I should just learn to accept.

    Connie, we all can wish for more time but yes it’s best to accept our time is limited. The end had to come eventually as heralded by the Good News of the Kingdom reappearing (Mt 24:14) as it now has and will be published worldwide in the coming years to fulfill the only sign Jesus gave that precedes the start of the end.

    I have rather mixed feelings about this but God understands our feelings and that we need to just live life as we normally live and just let the world dance instead of getting all nervous of the so-called “Judgement” news!

    To the contrary, didn’t Jesus say in Luke 21 (I believe it is chapter 21) “Pray that you may escape all these things”. These should be our prayer these days and let’s not be selfish and include in this request all our fellow christians in the world.

    I am responding to Connie. The promise of Jesus second coming is He is going to bring the restoration of all things. As long as we believe, hold on to faith, confess(know we miss the Mark) our sins or shortcomings and love one another we will receive the promise.

Hello Tim, I am not part of your support group due to very bad times I am going through financiall, but I am very glad you have taken the step to announce this date. Although I am unable to access the article I believe you are correct. It takes a bold and confident person to announce something as huge as this and I congratulate you on that. All we need to do now is carry on preparing ourselves and watch the final events unfold and play out. It is scary but we have to have faith.
As always your articles are very inspirational, keep up the good news.

Thanks Tim, making literal sense, as always. How’s the novel coming along? I hope with the movie deal you are able to retain rights to the final edit, so they cannot change the story/message. Of course God will ensure it happens.

        I can CONFIRM that [some] dreams are specially and very [divinely] revealing to the receiver! I am educated and [30 years] experienced in 23 areas of federal law [this is an incredible jurisprudence knowledge, in addition to the federal courts’ judicial processes]. I can CONFIRM that–based upon my observations the manner of [confidence] writing–our special brother Tim McHyde has (since 2000) indeed become very attentive and diligent at reading the Holy Bible! We are not even close discerning the Bible passages as he does! Another quality he has is to make [definitive] “distinction” between erroneous biblical prophecy presentations by various pretenders and those persons in the Bible who presented authoritatively God’s good news or other prophetical matter! This business to clearly make a definitive “distinction” is substantial and worthy to be repeated here: there are out there many Bible prophecy interlocutors who fail to make distinction between the “second coming” of Christ and the “rapture” (which is not correctly translated from the Greek), thus embellishing on the text and confusing the hearer! Tim’s presentation on the biblical prophecy is as clear as the English language can possibly render! In law, this aspect (of rendering with certainty) is very important! That’s why we have a U.S. Supreme Court to “clarify”, “render” and “rule” on the lower courts’ confusing decisions! Finally, I can CONFIRM that in the Aramaic version of the Bible the New Testament “renderings” [bearing on the subject at hand] are lining up with KJV-1611 (original copy), and the N.T. version HCSB that he is quoting from [and the Holman Concise Bible Dictionary proves it]. Also, the Interlinear Bible, Hebrew-English-Greek backs it all up as well. There’s no doubt, that our brother Tim McHyde really has done his homework honestly, and attentively respecting the written prophecies bearing on the biblical texts that he presented (and explained) to us! I have over 500 Oxford-grade books written on the Bible (including numerous Bible versions) in my private library (aside from my 300 law text books), and I hereby further CONFIRM that even professor Dr. Frederick F. Bruce (an immense biblical authority in our modern era) stated that the biblical text that we all read today is reliable! In closing I encourage every subscriber to Tim’s website here not to doubt the honest, diligent and attentive presentation made by our brother Tim McHyde. Now, about my dream:

        On the date [Nov. 4/1995] in which the ex-prime minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated, in my dream I had two ladies dressed in black and head covered in black at the table, wherein a young, tall man [33-35 years old, British-looks and very tall above 8 feet, with “scars” on his face] was about to “serve” us some food at a table in his immense office! I too was dressed in black and hat over my head (like a Rabbi), and told him that I was in a hurry, but he appeared to suggest to me to come again and see him! I promised him that I will come again and see him! I then awoke…and the next day on TV, I noted in tears, that in fact Israel’s P/M Rabin was dead and his wife dressed in black (that I met her on that Sunday afternoon dream) was eulogizing him at official microphone, on TV, before the whole world to see it, alongside her daughter also dressed in black and eulogizing her father!). I therefore can state with all confidence that our Lord Jesus proved to me that Israel’s P/M was assassinated while I was asleep on that Sunday afternoon–an incredible day I will never forget!

You are right. I have been looking at it as 2024 but it is o.k. But whenI look at the scriptures, it seems the rapture of the church is before the tribulation period although I know you have been teaching that it is towards the end. I am asking the Lord to get give me better understanding.

Reply
    Zachary Miller - June 16, 2017

    Are you talking about these scriptures? It seems that the “rapture” occurs at the END of the tribulation (which Matthew even states) and the others verify this with the last trumpet being blown (which is ten days prior to Yeshua returning with the Saints, etc..)…

    Matthew 24:29-31:
    Immediately after the tribulation of those days: The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the celestial powers will be shaken. 30 “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the peoples of the earth will mourn; and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

    Revelation 11:15-18:
    The seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven saying: The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Messiah, and He will reign forever and ever! 18 The nations were angry, but Your wrath has come. The time has come for the dead to be judged and to give the reward to Your servants the prophets, to the saints, and to those who fear Your name, both small and great, and the time has come to destroy those who destroy the earth.

    Revelation 10:7:
    but that in the days of the trumpet call to be sounded by the seventh angel, the mystery of God would be fulfilled, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.

    1 Corinthians 15:51-52:
    Listen! I am telling you a mystery: We will not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed 52 in a moment, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound [1], and the dead will be raised incorruptible [2], and we will be changed

    1 Thessalonias 4:15-17:
    For we say this to you by a revelation from the Lord:, We who are still alive at the Lord’s coming will certainly have no advantage over those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’ voice, and with the trumpet of God [1], and the dead in Christ will rise first [2]. 17 Then we who are still alive [3-almost] will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air [4] and so we will always be with the Lord .

There were Ten Virgins who “went out”. All ten had lamps with oil in their cans. Five virgins had an amount of oil that seemed to have been considered appropriate for the mission at hand, that is, they were equipped by their “understanding” ( consensus) for a specified period of time-distance. All ten virgins arrived at a specified place ( understanding ) to anticipate a desired result. After the seemingly easy and predictable appointment didn’t transpire as understood ( failed timing, consensus ), ALL TEN went to sleep. The five wise virgins were not deprived of their goal by the delay. In this example, “sleep” is not apathy or disregard for the five “wise” take part in this ” rest” and arise to fulfill their goal. The “sleep – rest ” is never presented as a fault or obstacle but merely a normal function of TIMING. When the CRY goes forth, all ten awake to respond but the GOAL requires more understanding-effort and five virgins discover that their “consensus-understanding” is failing them. The five foolish virgins then realize that listening to consensus was not Torah. The five wise virgin’s realize that their understanding of Torah – proper provision- will suffice them to attain their goal but to do so requires them to be POSSESSIVE ( guard or keep) of that commodity (Torah/Truth/Understanding) and not to share it with fools. The provision for the foolish virgins was always present ( oil dealers- Torah Teachers ) but their Church’s consensual understanding of the event led then to believe that a BIGGER investment in that precious commodity ( oil, Truth, Torah ) was not needed. Perhaps the foolish virgin’s had trusted in “grace”. Finally, to be wise requires that we abandon consensus and pay a price that will suffice us in the World’s ” days of troubles”. Deliverance is always THROUGH some form of darkness. Great article Tim. Regards to Katrina and the tribe. lol

      Just did. Wonderful. It took me years to begin effectively ridding myself of the Western American Capitalist/Competitive influence from my reading of Scripture. My past mindset reflexively filtered this and most Bible stories as a “competitive” type analogy of obedience. Most of my Christian Life was a clarion call to join God’s ” L.A. Fitness” and to make sure I could out run or jump my COMPETITION. This competitive attitude, must be Greek influence, of interpretation ran deeper than I would or could honestly admit. I listened to Chaim Goldberg again last night explain why it takes so long to deliver a message from a Hebrew perspective in that one must first tear down the pre-existing structures. Thanks for your persistence !

Tim, at this time I am neither agreeing with nor refuting your 2026 claim. I will heed your suggestion of “taking it to my prayer closet” as I fell prey to the Y2K theory and it has made me much more cautious. Also, in your opinion, do you believe that the world has reached the level of evil as was in the Days of Noah? (Gen.6:13, 2Tim.3:1-5).This is also a sign of the end. I admit that Godliness is lacking in our day but do you think it has reached the level of Noah’s Days yet? I like to believe there are a lot of “good” people still around but then I live in cushy USA so things might not appear so bad from my prospective.

    Katrina McHyde - June 11, 2017

    If you were to look around you at all the people you know, and all the things happening even in your own city or family, would you find more or less people fit this description?: 2 Timothy 3:1-2 “But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people!”

    So, what percentage of the population you know would fit some or all of this description? What part of these things are you still trying to overcome? Can you even further handle being like Paul and the Apostles in the midst of persecution and an evil world who will take advantage of you not being like what is mentioned above? Refer to 1 Corinthians 4:12-13 – “…When we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it, when we are slandered, we respond graciously. Even now, we are like the world’s garbage, like the dirt everyone scrapes off their sandals.”

    How close are we to finding out how many people are mostly like the first passage I mentioned when things are not so comfortable in our first world countries? We will find out. What will you start practicing now to be able to handle such a test yourself and not become like this which is an excerpt from what Yeshua said about the last days- Matthew 24:9-141 — “Then they will hand you over for persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 Then many will take offense, betray one another and hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be delivered. 14 This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

    How many of us are already trying to hold on to loving our neighbor as ourselves FOR THE LOVE OF GOD even when your neighbor does not respond positively to your love? This is not easy and it won’t get easier. It’s a good idea to practice this now to be better at it because loving God with your whole heart, mind, and soul by loving your neighbor as yourself is getting REAL. If you cannot do it well now, it is time to ask God to help you be able to do it. How close are we all to being like the negative things mentioned here and not the positive? And if we can be honest, how close are we to the end times based on these Scriptures? We all must evaluate such things for ourselves. Have fun evaluating!

      I keep coming back to this article and your reply here. I find myself more and more hiding in my “cave” – private basement apartment.

      This is where I come to listen to my healing music- a blessing from God. This is where I come to study and read and re read Tim’s articles and the teachers he has brought to my life.

      This is where I hide when loved ones either don’t receive my love or I’ve fallen short of love.

      I am so grateful for a place to hide and study and pray. I may or may not ever meet you in person, but I consider you and Tim and Nehemiah and Keith and James, family.

      You unveil the truth and give me hope and encouragement a place to focus my thoughts in the practice of love on this earth, my job.

      My job is not easy. But it is exciting, a challenge that thrills me and will continue to baffle me to the end of my days whether that is tomorrow, 2026, 2030, or who knows? Maybe I get to live forever.

      I thank God for you both. Good bless you!

      Much love,

    Ronnie, 2Tim 3:1-5 is not an “end time sign.” It could never serve as such since it’s a subjective description of society. Almost every generation reads that passage and thinks it fits their “worsening society.” I think we only fully arrived at it recently with social media and people being able to express how they are lovers of themselves, materialistic narcissists.

    Anyway, nothing in the Bible says we need to reach the same level as Noah’s day when God had to wipe out all flesh it was so bad with giants and other nephilim.

    We just need the Gospel of the Kingdom published worldwide and then the end can come (Mt 24:14).

    Anthony Ianosel - August 12, 2017

    The text in Hebrew text in the book of Moses (Genesis) states that the “earth was filled with violence” (Gen 6:11, 13).
    That’s one of the “prerequisites” that lines up well with our modern era as it is described by the New Test. writers as being “the end times”.
    The next “prerequisite” is: “the earth has become corrupt” (Ge. 6:11,13).
    The next “prerequisite is: “all the people on earth had corrupted their ways” (Gen. 6:12). The New Test. adds up a few more details: Matt. 24:38-39.
    No one can argue plausibly that our modern era is in such moral and material decay and spiritual decadence unprecedented in human history, as in Noah’s time. Yes, our brother Tim is right to conclude that some 10 years from now (in 2012-7) humanity will experience “terrible sorrows” and much punitive action from “above” will be visited upon our most decadent nations which tacitly and legally encourage sodomy abominations, and human unborn killing and much sneering at God’s Word in society and in the schools!

Joshua - June 12, 2017

Thank you, Tim, for the great article. I deeply appreciate your insight, which I remember reading some time ago, and reiterated here, that the Christian Church does not teach the Gospel of the Kingdom, and has not since the apostolic era. It teaches a different gospel: that Jesus brings you eternal life, or reconciliation with God. This makes sense to me, because the GNOTK is good news to Israel (the context of the Gospel), and the Church has not been too fond of Israel for the past 1,900 years, to say the least.

Can you offer more insight into the significance of the year 2016? Are you saying that nobody knew the GNOTK before then, or just that you think that starting last year, there has been a lot more people talking about it? What precisely was not known by you? You knew what the Kingdom of God was from the WCG’s teaching, but you did not know what the Gospel of the Kingdom of God was. How so? I don’t think the article addressed this.

    Tim McHyde - June 14, 2017

    Joshua, until last year, 2016, despite all my success with understanding prophecy literally, I remained unable to find a good answer anywhere to what Jesus meant by “this good news of the Kingdom” (Mt 24:14)–much like how no one had a good literal explanation for Wormwood until I had my breakthrough on that which I shared later in Know the Future. Yes, I’ve known for 30 years what the future coming Kingdom was about (instead of thinking we all just remain in Heaven after we die, like most Christians do). But I could not understand what would make for actual “good news” today for someone repenting and seeking the Kingdom first (Mt 6:33). In 2016 I finally was guided to the answer that goes along with explaining the only end time precursor sign of Mt 24:14 and wrote up my article in the Support Team area. If I had known this or could find someone with good explanation before 2016, Know the Future would have included what the Good News actually is (like the supporter study does) in its coverage of Mt 24:14. Currently KTF only says who fulfills the GNOTK and the relative timing of this event. If I get to do a 9th edition of KTF, I’ll explain what the GNOTK is just like the supporter study does.

I’m not sure I know what’s more shocking about this post: The possibility that the ‘end’ will begin in 2026 OR Tim setting an actual date! I’ve been pondering the timing of the most likely cycle period but missed the “message of the kingdom” beginning (possibly now)…..I’m still not seeing how the ME war can take place (nuclear) given the current makeup of that area but I suppose that could change very quickly.

Sam Miller - June 12, 2017

Regarding the person that emailed Tim with the statement, “I’m not like Sam Miller”. I had this same question/concern for Tim as you did. I too was concerned first about whether my children were even old enough and mature enough to hear about the events that will take place.

I was reminded by Tim and Katrina that it’s NOT my job to save anyone. I have been burdened for years with the heavy load Christianity has had around my neck convincing me it’s my job to bring the gospel to the whole world. Christianity convinced me that It’s my job to convince people they need to be saved. It’s my job to do things the way the apostles and other prophets did, even though they were gifted by God specifically for the things they did and I was not.

I was burdened with the idea that if I don’t do my job, my children would spend eternity in hell being tormented. It was a heavy burden.

When I finally became convinced after several years of studying, that my job is simply to manage my own salvation and now just recently I have been blessed with the understanding of how to do God’s will , which is to love God with my whole heart, love my neighbor as myself and seek first the kingdom of God, the weight of the world was lifted.

Now I have a clear plan that I am in control of. As far as my children, my job is to win them over so much that they’ll follow me wherever I go. As you begin to love people, you’ll discover that God helps you with this. I believe God will help me to love them so radically that my children will have no reason not to follow me when the time comes for us to flee. If they don’t, I know God has a better plan for them then casting into torment for eternity.

Believe me, I had a hard time with loving people because I first needed to love myself. How could I possibly love anyone else if I couldn’t even love the person I saw in the mirror. Tim and Katrina helped me with this immensely. They showed me that the God of the universe thinks I’m a pretty special person and loves me so much he sent HIS ONLY son to die for me. I knew that already but perhaps didn’t really spend the time really understanding what this actually means. Once I got this threw my thick skull, which didn’t take very long, I have been able to actually FEEL love for other people. At first I just did things to show love but really wasn’t feelen it. But now I actually FEEL love for people – even people I considered enemies, people that have “screwed me over” in some way.

It’s all about prayer. Depend on God for everything. Pray always. Anything you’re having difficulty with, pray about it. Constantly. You can’t feel love for someone, ask God to help you. You feel anxiety over something, pray about it. You are fearful, pray! After a while you’ll begin to feel things you either have never felt or perhaps have not felt in awhile, which is God drawing closer to you as you invite him with to each prayer.

I believe I found Tim and Katrina for a reason. I believe I have been gifted with understanding the mysteries of the universe (through Tim’s book and blog) that scholars have been trying to understand for centuries and have not. And, I believe it’s for a reason. I believe I will be counted worthy especially now that I know what God wants of me, again to love Him, love others and seek His kingdom. Light easy load! Just like Jesus said.

I feel blessed beyond belief. You will too if you get praying now.

God Bless!

    Dear Sam,

    I have also (like you) been burdened for most of my adult life, by expectations of the church; then I discovered Tim on internet, read his book Know the Future, and has since for the past 8 years, read a lot of his articles too. He and Katrina has helped me a lot through very difficult times of sadness, fear, doubt and loss. I struggled a lot with the thought of my only child, and her family being lost at present (they don’t believe anymore 🙁 but like you, I now have a lot more peace that hopefully they will listen to Elijah when the time comes. And it they don’t, I cant control them. Just trust in God’s mercy. Its hard enough to stay focussed in this messed-up world at present 🙂

    Kind regards, love in Christ

      Hi Linda,

      Its good to hear from you. It helps for me knowing that God is not the sadist Christianity makes him out to be. So even if our kids don’t become saved now that does not mean they will spend eternity being tormented in hell.

      YHVH has a plan to save all of humanity (1Tim 2:4) which is the whole reason for the millennial period so that all can come to the knowledge of the truth.

      Worst case, they take a nap for 1000, wake up to a eutopia, finally see the light and we all spend the rest of eternity together.

      But, like you, I pray daily that my kids will come with me to the place of safety when that time comes.

      God bless!

Tim,
I don’t want to sound pessimistic. For sure, I know the Bible says… this news of the Kingdom will be preached to the entire world, then the end will come..(paraphrased)…I would want to believe this has got to be massive….not only happening on a few websites, then we can classify it as “reaching the ends of the earth”….and even then what would be the measure of “reaching the ends of the earth”

Reply
    Tim McHyde - June 13, 2017

    Richard, I agree it has to be massive. That’s what I wrote in the article, mass marketing must happen, blogs, YouTube, novel, movie. It doesn’t say “reaching the ends of the earth” but rather “whole world…to all nations.” If you get the return of a real, live, Biblical “fire-breathing prophet” (Rev 11:5) doing sensational things, it will get the job done. Also don’t overlook, the Good News of the Kingdom has never been taught among Christians and that is now available again. That’s the start and the rest will follow in the coming years. 2024-2030 is the first candidate cycle where that could be said! It’s monumental.

This sure helps to comfort me.

It’s getting bad where I live, my hometown is being very Islamized. The local politicians are inept, afraid, morally corrupted, in denial – as the entire Left-wing Government of Sweden is. Those who had never been in Sweden would be shocked, my hometown looks almost like Beirut.

Foreign Minister Margot Wallström is so anti-Israel that Jerusalem banned her from visiting the country. Ofcourse, the presence of Muslims everywhere and their propaganda has worked. Israel is being vilified, demonized and blamed for basically everything that’s wrong in the world.

My very neighbours are radical Palestinians, a Hamas scarf fell from their balcony and landed near my door not long ago. On it was some Arabic writing and an image of Palestine replacing all of the land of Israel.

So I’m suppose to love a neighbour that eagerly seeks to destroy everything I believe in and hope for. If God intended this to be a test, I would say it’s a very good test of faith.

    Andreas,
    You are supposed to report ANY POSSIBLE TERRORIST! Try calling Homeland Security—-or at least the FBI! You can pray for their soul in love—–but you sure do not have to love their actions. Doing nothing may get a lot of Christians killed!! No question about what I would do.

      Charlie, I live in Sweden, I would report any suspicious person I see but that won’t work. Just like in London, Paris, other cities, people suspect terrorists but they can’t be arrested because there is no acceptable evidence against them. And what I did see, isn’t accepted as evidence.

If President Trump was chosen by God to be President of the U.S. then it’s feasible to think Trump could have two terms in office if re-elected. This will allow additional time for redemption and revival if America is the new Babylon.

However, in Joel Richardson’s book “Mystery of Babylon” and lengthy interpretation of Revelations 17-18, he says: “The city of Mecca, quite simply, is the greatest city of idolatry that mankind has yet to produce.” It also fits the description of a desert seaport where goods are brought in. America has been responsible for 90% of Christian evangelism throughout the world. One of our greatest sins is the termination of 60 million fetuses. Yet idolatry at Mecca and the Dome of the Rock could be more offensive abominations to YHVH and Yeshua. Many Christians were taught that the Roman Catholic church is the great harlot adorned in purple and scarlet. I’m curious to know why Tim thinks America is the new Babylon? Saudi Arabia has wealth & greed beyond measure and fits the desert description.

Hi Tim, so are you saying that the rapture will happen in 2026 or the final seven years will be in 2026 where Jesus sets up His kingdom? I am really cautious on people who set dates, even though I know what you’re saying..

Tim,

I am trying to reconcile your dates above for the Sabbath year cycle. I went through the book The Sabbath and the Jubilee Year Cycle. The author concludes that he thinks System A is the correct system for reckoning the cycles. He concludes that the next Jubilee year will end the year 2045/2046, which throws your dates off by a year. Are you adopting system A?

Tim,

I know you’ve spoken about the “dual” nature of prophecy…It appears you may have hinted at this already with the destruction of Mystery Babylon but I keep wondering about the death of the previous Elijah (John the Baptist) and how that might relate to the possible death of the next Elijah (by Mystery Babylon resulting in her final destruction)…In other words, if the previous Elijah died before Jesus’s mission was completed will the same occur to the next Elijah–before the next appearance of Jesus (at the end)?

Reply
    Tim McHyde - June 26, 2017

    Zach, JohnTB did die, but it was not required by prophecy that he did. For a great prophet like him, martyrdom is expected, even without a prophecy. That said, if the Two Witnesses are Elijah (#3) and Moses, then they too will die a martyr’s death before Yeshua’s return to reign, which gives Elijah #3 the same fate as Elijah #2, differing from what Elijah #1 experience who just flat-out retired =).

      Dear Tim, Thank you for your work and this website. I am a fellow watchman and student of end times. I am particularly interested in the significance of the feasts, and how they line up with the rapture and second coming.

      I’m also very interested in your thoughts about how or why you are convinced that the second coming is on a Sabbath year? It’s not my intention at all to argue or debate, so please understand I’m not contradicting you. I’ve never heard this idea, and am seriously interested in learning, and believe the time is very very short.

Tim, thank you for this article and teaching. I am going to read it again as soon as I have another opportunity. There is so much info.

I can relate to you because I too would read the Bible as a very young child and have so many questions, but when I would ask my mom she would deny, flat out deny what the word of God states. It was very hard because I knew what I read, and it made me feel very bad, but I see now that there are those who read God’s word, and they don’t understand, period. Children are innocent so I believe God’s word is obvious to them.

As I got older I became “of the world” and reading his word was not as easy. I would stick to the Psalms, or Proverbs. Once I started to seek God’s word again with a whole heart, He revealed his truth once again. That is why I feel that all those who deny prophecy, deny we are the last generation, deny what’s written in God’s word, they have not been revealed His truth because they are Lukewarm. They are still of this world and too busy taking pleasure in this world. We need to pray for them Brothers and Sisters. Each of us reading this has come here because we have been given discernment, and want to know the truth, and by the Grace of God he will continue to reveal His truth to those who seek him. Pray for your family, friends, co-workers, and enemies. God wishes all to come to the truth and so be saved. We cannot take advantage of the work on the cross, and keep these things to ourselves, spread the good news! If they take heed, great, if not, their blood will not be on your hands.

You may have written about it elsewhere but I often see in articles that I read that we are in the Hebrew year 5777.

But now, I feel like all my educations will most likely be in vain, for the good news may be(I have not read your article yet) set in my life time. Sure I can hope that the lord let me live out my plans, but why would he do this for me? Most importantly, I have no wife which makes me feel horrible, and what women would want to marry me at this hour? I also feel bad for my Christian brothers and sisters, for their safety and plans is now being challenged. I seen them even talk about preparing to die. I see no evil in their preparations, but I feel bad that they must go through this. Even if the lord allowed the us to have our desires to marry, why would we want any children at this hour? Is not warning others best? I feel like the lord has given the youth the time span of an elder, for the WW3 and rest of the chaos is hounding Christians down; However, I am not angered with the lord, for he is God and he takes our life as he wish. I do not know when the lord would considered this message world wide (20 years, 50 years or 100), but it is out there I guess. What do you think I should do?

    Lamont, wisdom demands we live life as if the end is not coming soon and to pray (or what if you plan for the short-term and time goes on longer? You’ve essentially been the architect of your own personal disaster). If you don’t get any leading from God to change your plans, then don’t and don’t worry. When it does come, everyone will have to adjust because no matter what stage of life they are in, they will have unfinished plans, hopes and dreams.

    Tim McHyde - August 1, 2017

    Donovan, just because people have failed so far to identify the end does not mean “nobody knows when…but God” today. A point in time is coming when it will be known such as when the 1290 day count to the end starts with the Abomination of Desolation.

    When Jesus was just a baby he was brought to the temple. Two prophets of God were told the Messiah was there and got to see him. Similarly I’m sure there are people who already know what year Jesus comes because God shown it to them and they can handle the information.

    Some do know, but none have been authorized to speak on this topic yet with proof to give to the whole world, yet…

The difference with my date sharing is that I’m not inventing an end time sign out of an eclipse or stock market collapse, but using the one and only named precursor “sign of the end” Jesus gave and working it out with the 70 weeks framework of Daniel given for this very purpose of knowing the seven year window of the end.

Hello Tim,
My interest in the end times was ALSO initiated by the Omen. I have NEVER been the same since. Needless to say, the 1st movie was much better than the later sequel. And Damien was the literal boogeyman indeed back then with the 666 hidden under a ring on a finger. And he never let me forget his demonic housekeeper protector, either. Or the spire falling from the steeple of the church and impaling the priest before he could expose the diabolical plot.

Right now here in Houston, we are recovering from a “Black Swan Event” (look it up) that was so far removed from possible that it was literally impossible. It’s like discovering King Kong, or finding a dodo bird, a unicorn or the Loch Ness monster. Or watching the Titanic sink, seeing a modern airplane fly for the very 1st time or using a Star Trek transporter. But now just a ho-hum rain event with more than 50 inches in 3 days is now ancient history. Impossibility BECAME reality literally. Probably the most expensive natural disaster in the history of Mystery Babylon. At least 250 billion plus. That is 250,000 million. From a freak hurricane of nature that wouldn’t go AWAY.

And a week after the much hyped continental “Jonahs sign”. And the woman giving birth next month….. Coincidental? Perhaps. Probably, but that’s Gods way of remaining anonymous.
In 10 years there will be profound changes occurring as routine. And some of those WILL be supernatural. And Black Swan Events. Just like last week. But they definitely are going to happen. And soon.

I predict more dramatic events of this caliber and magnitude with eventual increasing frequency. Especially earthquakes. and there are several prime locations here in the USA. And predicted to happen.

So, Thank You, Tim for Your insight on these end time Events. Just love your perspectives.
Your mention of the Omen gives me goosebumps, still.

    Joseph, yes, my opinion on 2026 is only for my supporters who ask me my opinion of the “How long?” question frequently. If you don’t care enough to support this teacher per established Biblical ethics (1Ti 5:18; 1Cor 9:14; Gal 6:6) then why would you value my opinion on timing?

    If the apostles had charged for teaching I guess they would have been in trouble as they were trained and commanded to go out and preach the gospel. I’m not an apostle, never claimed to be!

    At the same time, the apostles were told to expect to be paid for their teaching, not to fund themselves (Luke 10:7; 1Co 9:7). So in the end there’s still nothing wrong with a teacher making sure he gets the payment he needs to keep going. It’s ethical and right. You may not agree with the method God led them to use (yes, after putting my faith in God and praying for this answer), but to condemn the brethren over a difference of opinion is missing the mark (Mt 7:1-3).

    I forgive you for your criticism and trust one day you’ll see that charging for Bible teaching is not “sinful” nor a sign of a lack of faith…

I am happy that Tim and Katrina are working in ‘this job’, making their livelihood from regularly sharing their studies and insights with us – most content is free, a small amount paid access.
Tim previously indicated that a one off donation to the Support Team gives you one month’s access to everything published in Supporter Content to date.
I think that is very thoughtful of the McHydes to offer that.
Nonetheless, I appreciate that some folk are doing it tough and live dollar to dollar.

I don’t know about anyone else but there is one thing that keeps bothering me about the usage of these Shemitah cycles. It’s not that I disagree with Jesus returning on a Sabbath year–It’s that these cycles are based on calculated years of when Jesus was believed to have started his ministry (28/29 ish AD) and ending in his death (30 AD). I continue to wonder about the accuracy of these dates–as there doesn’t seem to be a definitive agreement on these dates. I know Tim has placed information throughout the site on their calculation but for whatever reason I’m still leery about accepting these dates as THE dates (ie: are the correct ones).

IF, and I say if, these dates are off by a few years or more we could effectively eliminate a cycle (such as the next one) before it should be invalidated….For example, imagine we are in the beginning of 2025 and the prophet hasn’t appeared in the prior year–We would conclude that this isn’t the correct cycle. However, what if the prophet comes later that year? This would require a “realignment” of these cycle timelines….I’m sure Tim has thought of this (and partially mentioned it in his book) but I thought I would just bring this up as human understanding of times/dates can be innaccurate…The dates are effectively the achillies heel of these timelines–which is a little worrisome to me.

Reply
    Tim McHyde - September 26, 2017

    Zach, yes we can’t be sure on the exact Sabbath year, but we can take comfort in knowing that all the Sabbath year cycle proposals are within six months of each other. That means at most 2024 is 6 – 12 months off the truth, it’s not a complete 3-4 years off. As such, it does not affect ruling out a cycle. Remember, it’s about the good news of the kingdom going out and the Ps 83 war. Neither are ready to happen in the next year or two, so this 2017-2023 cycle (even +/- 1 year) is toast even if it were actually 2018-2024.

I am not convinced of the assumption that you give, that Christ will return in 2026, and that the rapture will take place 7 years earlier. They have been saying this that the second coming will happen on certain dates down the centuries, and every time they were wrong. What makes you think you are right? ,and what proof you have that this will happen in 2026? I do agree that Jesus will return at the most appropriate hour and day, However it also must be said of the hour and the day no man knows, especially Jesus Christ he does not know. It must be said that the only only one who does know is the Father, did you talk to the Father about this. Just remember if this does not come to past as you say you may very well be looked upon as a false prophet, and remember that I am not minced for words here. He will come when the Father is good and ready, and the Father does not depend upon dates for the return of his son Jesus.

    Jerry, you missed the point, which is not surprising since you did not read the article (I know since you’re not a supporter). I shared my 2026 conviction not to convince others, but to help supporters who are seeking confirmation on time being short and having a sense of urgency about the need to repent, love God love others now more than ever (which is also taught in the support team studies).

    As for your questions, why not pay to become a supporter so you can read the article and have every question answered and support the teacher doing this research you seem clearly interested in? We both would win.

    As for your interpretation that “no man knows the day or hour” means “NO MAN WILL EVER KNOW (so don’t even try to use the myriad timing clues on prophecy to understand when I’m coming, when I’m not, and when I possibly can…” I recommend you study my free article on that difficult word of Jesus.
