Ark of the Covenant Found? Role in End Time Prophecy

By Tim McHyde / August 23, 2014

Does the lost Ark of the Covenant still exist? Will it resurface? Some claim it is hidden in the Temple Mount, others Mt Nebo, others Ethiopia. Some predict it will come out in the end times for the Third Temple and Antichrist’s “confirmation of the covenant.” What does the Bible say about the role of the Ark of the Covenant in the future? Surprisingly very little, but enough to discount the ark having any role in end-time prophecy.


119 Ministries – Cult?

By Tim McHyde / December 11, 2013

119 Ministries is the Hebrew Roots ministry of Jon Sherman and Steve Moutria. They teach Bible prophecy including the four blood moons theory in their Daniel Unsealed video. As with other Hebrew Roots groups, many Christians consider 119 ministries a cult.


“Four Blood Moons: Something Is About To Change” Review

By Tim McHyde / November 2, 2013

Does John Hagee’s book on the four blood moon prophecy help you understand the biblical significance of the 2014-2015 tetrad? Considering that the first 170 pages of “Four Blood Moons: Something Is About To Change” is background material on prophecy, Israel in Scripture and history with only 24 pages on the coming tetrad, that’s a fair question. Here’s my review to help you evaluate the book and its ideas.


Rabbi Judah ben Samuel’s Jubilee Prophecy – Messiah in 2017?

By Tim McHyde / September 21, 2013

Rabbi Judah ben Samuel supposedly made an amazing prophecy concerning the future of Jerusalem that already has three accurate fulfillments from 1517-1967. The prophecy further predicts the start of the “Messianic end time” by 2017. But is the prophecy trustworthy and can Jesus even return in 2017? Read on to learn why how people interpret and use this prophecy is flawed. Also, what did Jesus himself reveal as the signs of his coming to watch for…instead of date watching?


Comet ISON in 2013: Nibiru Doomsday or Omen of Christ’s Return?

By Tim McHyde / March 2, 2013

When is a comet not just a comet, but a divine warning sign like Jesus spoke of coming in the end times? If you do not know how to answer that, Comet “ISON” may test you with fear and anxiety in 2013. Doomsday watchers are already predicting that Comet ISON is Planet X, Nibiru, Wormwood, or a gravitational earthquake/deep impact threat. Alternatively, some predict it will make a spectacular daytime visible sign in the sky one month before Christ’s return (yes, on Christmas, 2013). Is Comet ISON a good or bad sign, Nibiru, Wormwood or a fulfillment of some other Bible prophecy? Find out how to tell when a comet is just a comet and what must come before Wormwood and other things Jesus warned about come upon us.


The Harbinger: Has America Ignored Actual Warnings From God?

By Tim McHyde / February 2, 2013

“The Harbinger” novel proposes that God has sent America nine omens or warnings of judgment starting with the 9/11 attacks. These “harbingers” include the Great Recession seven years after 9/11 along with several surprising coincidences at Ground Zero and “vows” against God supposedly made by US leaders. Rabbi Cahn claims that in all this God is following the “prophetic warning pattern” of Isaiah 9:10 that leads to economic downfall if we do not repent. But is this a message from God or even accurate to how God speaks? When you compare this theory to the real pattern of warning and judgment that is spelled out not just in one verse to Israel but throughout the entire Bible, you can see for yourself whether America is in judgment or being warned of judgment just yet.

David Wilkerson Prophecy of “Calamity”: Why False

By Tim McHyde / March 18, 2009

David Wilkerson has released a prophecy in 2009 that “AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN” and recommends you get a 30 day supply of food. You may have heard that his church made 2000 sandwiches for rescue workers the day before 9/11. Before you worry about his warning, you may want to consider several problems with it and learn the truth about those 2000 sandwiches. In the process you may learn how to debunk future false prophecies that are sure to come in these bad economic times.

By Tim McHyde / January 1, 2009

Are there “signs of the end times” that we are supposed to watch for? Have some already happened or are signs happening now? What if we miss these signs?

Find out how to discern these signs and to better recognize the few true signs that the Bible does talk about us witnessing in the end times.


Must I Give My Book Away Because Jesus said “Freely give?”

By Tim McHyde / December 8, 2008

If you produce and sell anything on the Bible such as a book, Bible software, or even a Bible version, you may be surprised to find that you that some Christians will make it a point to tell you how wrong you are to charge for it—because Jesus or Paul or the prophets did not charge for their teaching. But is this what Jesus or Paul taught, that anything associated with the Bible must be given away? Let’s look at the arguments and actual verses that apply to find the surprising truth.
