The Image of the Beast Identified, At Last

By Tim McHyde / June 21, 2006

In the future, an “image” of the Antichrist will be made for all the earth to worship (on penalty of beheading). This may sound improbable until you understand what this image is and how it becomes animated so that it can talk and turn people in who refuse to worship it.


Is America Mystery Babylon the Great? Six Objections Answered

By Tim McHyde / May 28, 2006

Is America, the most dominant and influential nation of the end times, really not found in Bible prophecy as most Christians believe? If that doesn’t sound right to you, then you are not alone. Revelation and Jeremiah talk about a dominant end time power named “Mystery Babylon the Great” which stands in the way of evil but at the same time is so wicked itself that God judges her before the rest of the world. Sadly, there is no better plain literal fulfillment of Babylon than America today. Except…how can God judge a nation who does so much good and not judge so many arguably worse nations like China or Iran? How can Babylon be a nation when it says it’s a “city?” Where is the blood of slain prophets “found in her?” These common objections and more are answered…plus why you do not need to fear being trapped in America when she is burned.


The Two Witnesses – Would You Want This Job?

By Tim McHyde / May 28, 2006

The Two Witnesses are impressive end time prophets able to stop the rain, send plagues and survive the Beast and False Prophet who they prophesy against. Understandably, they are the subject of much speculation and even envy today among Christians. Christians alternately believe that they are Enoch and Elijah (who allegedly never died), Moses and Elijah (from the Transfiguration), or even Christians among us today who claim to be them. But are they here and do we need to figure out who they are or worry about what happens if we don’t? Find out why they are not here today and no one in their right mind should want to claim to be the Two Witnesses.


60 Reasons America is Mystery Babylon (Not Iraq)

By Tim McHyde / May 2, 2006

Just who is “Babylon the Great” of Revelation 17-18? Popular answers are the Vatican or Catholic Church, Rome (“the city on seven hills”), Jerusalem and Iraq where the literal city Babylon is found. These answers may seem to adequate when you focus on only a few verses or traits of Mystery Babylon. However, when you consider all 60 characteristics of Daughter Babylon or Babylon the Great found throughout Bible prophecy, only one answer fits the many verses literally without forcing: America the Great. This article was written by the late R. A. Coombes.


God’s 6000 Year Plan: Dating Jesus’ Latest Return?

By Tim McHyde / January 3, 2006

Has God given man 6000 years to rule himself before Jesus returns to take over? Many Christians think the Bible teaches this and they use leverage it to predict the year of Jesus’ Second Coming. But is it possible? How do you count the years? What do they start from? (Hint: not Adam/Creation) Also, what does Adam’s age for Seth’s birth tell us about the latest that Jesus can return?


When Were the True Dates of the Crucifixion and Resurrection

By Tim McHyde / January 1, 1997

A great example of how religion teaches traditions in place of the Word of God is in how 3 days and 3 nights don’t fit between a “Good Friday” crucifixion and “Easter Sunday” resurrection. (No, you’re not crazy for that always having bothered you.) Some have asked my opinion on the right days, so here’s what I think is right in this article written by Chris Lingle. – Tim
