Post-2012 Doomsday Blues? 4 Lessons or Benefits

By Tim McHyde / February 7, 2013

Although many were relieved when December 21st, 2012 passed without any of the predicted disasters, some instead were confused or even depressed after. They wondered why they did not see through it like most people did (who may be saying “I told you so.”) Certainly it is easy to negatively judge the 2012 hysteria and […]


Six Wrong Ways to Face the End Times (& One Right)

By Tim McHyde / September 10, 2011

Bible prophecy says that bad things are coming. Conspiracy theories found on the Web only seem to confirm this. In light of this warning, what should we do to prepare? Shall we leave the city or even the country? Move to Israel? Stock up on food and water…or even guns and ammo or at least […]


Why We Fall For Doomsday Dates (And How To Never Again)

By Tim McHyde / November 6, 2010

Believers look forward to Jesus’ Second Coming and hope someone can figure out when it will be. Perhaps the Bible has the timing hidden somewhere there among all its numbers? But it’s clear that date setters have been missing something important if you study their long track record of failure. The key is to understand […]


Which “Audience” Will God “Keep From the Tribulation” (Rev 3:10)?

By Tim McHyde / October 2, 2010

Most would prefer to avoid the Great Tribulation through a “pretrib rapture.” In my experience, Revelation 3:10 is often used to prove this since it promises to keep “thee” from a global hour of testing for all on earth. But who is “thee”—all believers or someone else? The audience of any passage is what determines […]


Seven End Times Fears of Believers (and Their Working Solutions)

By Tim McHyde / September 18, 2010

Looking into Bible prophecy for yourself can be scary business. Not even a Hollywood disaster movie does justice to what Revelation predicts we must go through before Jesus comes. Understandably, even believers get frightened by what they read in their Bibles—despite that verse that says “perfect love casts out all fear.” If you haven’t yet […]


If You Think A Recent Disaster Was A Judgment or Warning Sign…

By Tim McHyde / June 11, 2010

Do you wonder if a recent natural disaster is an important prophetic sign? Are some calling it God’s judgment? Or that it fulfills a prophecy in the Bible? Are you feeling kind of nervous or worried after this disaster that it was a warning or wake-up call from God or telling us that the end […]


What Kind of “Earthquakes” (Mt 24:7) Are An End Time Sign?

By Tim McHyde / March 20, 2010

It seems to many that severe earthquakes are on the rise. Christians naturally wonder if this is what Jesus spoke of in the Olivet Discourse about the sign of “earthquakes in diverse places” preceding his coming. But are normal scattered earthquakes like this a sign of the end? A reexamination of this passage is now […]


Jubilee Year Cycle (49 or 50?)

By Tim McHyde / December 21, 2008

The Jubilee Year of the Bible is important to understand properly if you want to understand the Biblical Calendar, and with it Bible prophecy and what it holds for the future. But few people do. Some think it is 50 years, some 49 years. Find out the truth now. After the Sabbath year, the Jubilee […]


Hear God’s Name Pronounced

By Tim McHyde / October 1, 2008

How do you pronounce God’s name? It is hotly debated. Opinions vary depending on the evidence used, mostly evidence external to the Bible. But based on the remaining unerased vowel points in the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, the Leningrad Codex, we can get the most close possible today without a prophet. Listen […]
