  • Tim McHyde on The First Sign of the End: The Gospel of Jesus Returns!Debra, thank you for your comment and generous support. I'm glad to have impacted your walk with Yehovah which is really the best fruit in gathering Bible understanding. Blessings!
  • Debra Webb on The First Sign of the End: The Gospel of Jesus Returns!Tim and Katrina- I was compelled to join your support team this evening because for years I have credited you for keeping me close to YHVH. I have read everything you have put out and every time you guide me to review scripture again or to new insights( the ted talk you recommend to another supporter was generous and warmly eye opening) I know that God has connected us and I give thanks for that. I wish you all the best on your new book and can't wait to read it- as always! Kindest blessings Debra
  • John on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Tim, Thanks for this fantastic and worthwhile article. I remember many years ago when we where just starting with the WWCG, ...we were told that we were allowed to use that name. If we did we would be subject to being "kicked out" We left the WWCG in the early '80's and have not looked back and have been using YHVH for a few years already. Knowing German, Spanish and Portuguese the Yehovah is most likely the correct on for the Spanish and Portuguese. The pronunciation is also determined by ones own language. Keep up the good work and Yehovah's blessings.
  • Tim McHyde on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Marcus, you may want to go back to Nehemia's website in the present, not just the past when what you said was true and admitted by him regarding several possible pronunciations. He keeps researching and has lately uncovered in his research more evidence on the name that points to Yehovah and not Yehowah or other ideas. The waw/W idea is no longer tenable in light of the new findings.
  • Tim McHyde on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)John, Yeshua (ישוע) rhymes with yoshia (will save יושיע) as Matthew 1:21 says in Hebrew. Yeshua is a shortened form of Yehoshua (יְהוֹשׁ֫וּעַ) which is a theophoric name (having most of God's name in it: YHV). Yeshua was a common name in Jesus' day and of all the names he could have been given, it made sense to pick one that rhymed with "will save" naming him for his role.
  • John on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Interesting piece. I though the Yah of Yahweh was a familial name for God's family. Yahweh... Yahshua...HalleluYah. How does Yeshua fit with Yehovah linguistically? Not Yehshua?
  • Tim McHyde on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)RonS, Nehemia has found it in many manuscripts since. Read his site and Facebook page for the latest discoveries as he keeps finding more and more.
  • Marcus G on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Well worth an article on that topic, Tim. It's not something that many people seem to show interest in! I have read all about Nehemiah's findings in the past and studied in some depth, but I've stayed with YHWH/Yahweh at this point. I've found that there truly seem to be good arguments for three or four different pronunciations when you dig into them. Even the W sound rather than the V sound has evidence behind it (not German, but Hebrew). I think it is important to know the name of our GOD - even if our attempts are not perfect or in full agreement. What person would want us as a close friend without us knowing their name or not even caring about finding out!?! Thanks, and all the best, Marcus G.
  • Donald on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)What about, Yeshua, instead of, "Jesus"??? I never heard of that name BUT I had a dream about it, It was VIVID AND CLEAR, >Yeshua
  • Ron S. on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Great article Tim. Do you know of other manuscripts besides the Leningrad Codex and the Stone Edition Chumash which show the full vowels?
  • visual curvature on Flat Earth Debunked by Bible ProphecyWhile sitting on a balcony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, I was looking at the ocean and the horizon, and could distinctly see the curvature of the earth. The long railing on the patio was flat and level, and while lining the railing up with the horizon you can actually see the curvature of the earth. Try it, it's obvious. The earth is not flat!
  • Anthony Ianosel, Esq on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Donald, I believe the Hebrew language DOES NOT HAVE a "W" in its alphabet. It rather has the "V", thus the YHVH (Yehovah). If you read my testimony below (an experience in Romania long ago, you'll understand that my christian choir was singing to YEHOVAH without any fear in the presence of the dictator's Cult Controllers--and they didn't freak out--and neither us!
  • Thomas Garza on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)In a culture where "Jesus Christ" is reduced to "J.C.", is it any wonder that many find the correct Name to not be relevant ? " He knows who I'm talking to ! " - This attitude may be fine in referring to Praying if one is ignorant (uneducated - which is never a negative thing unless one has refused to be taught ) . One of the most important aspects of EDUCATION is not to become SMART but rather, to learn the responsibility that is inherent in gaining knowledge. Once you have been given TRUTH, you must accept that "ignorance" will never be an accepted alibi. At a Hospital years ago, I was sitting in a surgical waiting room with friends and sharing my newfound love of "Torah Life" (consciousness) and the relativity of Hebrew Culture/Language as to interpreting difficult parts of the Bible. A long time family friend piped up; " I don't have that much time to learn what you're talking about. " The reply shocked me as the life of a man was hanging in the balance in the adjoining room and my friend's reply seemed to say, " Knowing that much about the Bible is just not that important to me. " My friend was being 100% honest and that impressed me more than his lack of willingness to LEARN. In a Courtroom, years earlier than the previous paragraph, a Judge replied to a statement that I made about KNOWING my Case. The Judge replied in WISDOM. " Sometimes we read too much ( use knowledge to justify our BIAS ) and sometimes we read too little ( forsake our OBLIGATION to know the FACTS and choose, COSTLY passivity ). " Now, apply the Judge's statement in how we approach Scripture and you'll see why the MAJORITY of so-called Believers will not tolerate the coming Elijah. Education is important, Wisdom remains the "chief thing ". May Yehovah grant each of us the courage to know the TRUTH and the wisdom to leave behind, our Church/Family traditions Great article Tim, as usual. Sincerely, You can call me "Al".
  • cristina trujillo on 616 vs. 666: Which Is the Real Number of the Beast?Very exciting info. I personally have come across to info that describe the misuse and reversal of this type of info, much of it included on the bible, so I can coop with the idea that 616 is more of what "they meant to say" thanks for throwing it out there... good to give more to think about and promote one's own discernment blessings
  • Tim McHyde on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Donald, calling on his name does mean that, but that's not why they are saved. They know his name because they fully repented biblically under the tutilege of a prophet who know, use and teach God's name also. Indeed the demons are believers but they are not saved and tremble because they don't obey (James 2:19).
  • Tim McHyde on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Charl, Yehovah God has decided to give the authority to save us to Yeshua. Therefore, there is no other name/authority under heaven by which we can be saved except Yeshua raising us from the dead (John 10:28). And yes in Mt 6:9 he told us to pray to Father Yehovah God, not himself. Yehovah is still "his God and our God" (John 20:17) regardless of who Yehovah delegated judgment to (Mt 28:18).
  • Donald on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)IF calling on his name means pronouncing & spelling it right, I think Satan can do that. Also, what about YHVH? IF YHVH means Yehovah, what do we do with the V compared with the W?
  • Charl du Randt on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Thank you for your great work Tim What do you make of Acts 4:12 and Matthew 6:9 regarding The Name ?

  • Anthony Ianosel, Esq on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Yes, too many Old Testament verses to enumerate confirm that the Holy Name of The Almighty Creator is in fact YEHOVAH, just as our brother Tim said it (and demonstrated) in so many words! I clearly remember in 1965-68, I was singing in a Christian choir in Timisoara in Romania (Baptist Church), and we were NOT fearful to sing honor and praises to YEHOVAH right in front of the big shots of the Cults responsible for overseeing the churches' activities (and monitoring). Today, some 25 years after the fall of communism, we can see that the modern pastors SHY AWAY from this so beautiful NAME of our Creator and Savior Yehovah! What a shame that in these modern times of relative peace in our Western democracies, our choral songs avoid the most beautiful name of YEHOVAH. It is indeed a very beautiful name, that no human being has been appropriated! Now we see a disruptive religion which palms as a godly faith--and everyone else "infidel" arising at the horizon, which is not ashamed to boast about their god's name Allah...and even claiming that it is "greatest" of all!!! What a shame, that Christianity has FORGOTTEN and IGNORED the most beautiful name in the Universe--YEHOVAH--who is commanding an overwhelming power and authority wherever location He is invoked and pronounced by His servant angels (as in the Moses' rescue of Hebrews people from Egypt). Very good article written Tim, you are the best advocate of and servant to the biblical truths which many (with much more $$$ resources fail at it). I see the same pattern in the legal system of Western democracies: those who are charged and appointed to hold firm to the Constitution mandates they swore an oath to uphold are becoming sloathful, drastically ignorant, and even contemptuous! Is it possible in our last days, that many arrogant preachers with lots of resources may be drifting into that sloppy, ignorant pattern of contempt towards the name of our Creator Yehovah? I see the Muslims leaders (and their 1.2 billion men and women) are very boastful and proud of their god Allah, while the Christian leaders seem to take the opposite path of ignoring the Almighty's holy name Yehovah in their sermons and teachings!
  • Tim McHyde on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Paul, I love Ron Wyatt's work. The "original Aramaic" is a myth and provable from the internal evidence of the NT texts which point directly to Hebrew, such as as Matthew 1:21 that makes no sense in English, Greek, or Aramaic, but only in Hebrew.
  • Tim McHyde on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Michelle, yes it's long overdue that I shared this topic that has been in my book since 2005. Well, I don't have any plans to move to Israel anytime soon. I think we'll all be moving there of course, together. But if I do move "early" I'll be sure to be talking a lot about it in my writing.
  • Michelle Gerson on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)I am so glad that you found out, as I have two years ago, the Name of the Lord. Will you also reveal the real Name of Jesus which is Yeshua. Since you are moving to Israel, (are you there yet), there is a Messianic University, the Israel Institute of Biblical studies. You can either attend or learn live on the Internet with a personal christian tutor. You learn biblical Hebrew and the literal translation with all the implications found in the old Hebrew tongue, together with a profound explanation of scriptures, verse by verse, in the Hebrew writing studied on the day. Perhaps also one day, if you find the time, you could convey us your new experience in Israel and give us a few hints of the lifestyle there for outsiders like us, who would like to move there too.
  • Tim McHyde on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Craig, El Shaddiah is more a title of God and there are many titles to God throughout the Old Testament like that given. But Joel 2:32 literally says, "call on the name of Yehovah." We will say the word Yehovah.
  • Helen Davies on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)What a wonderful revelation. I feel so blessed to read this. Thank you, dear Servant of Yehovah.
  • Paul Schelfhout on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Well said, and the Catholic Church is banning the use of "Yahweh". Are you aware of Ron Wyatt's work on finding the "Ark of the Covenant", plenty available on the web? Definitely worth knowing. Also the is a group who have translated the NT direct from Aramaic to English; seems the original NT was written in Aramaic and not Greek. Website AENT.org (I would give you a glimpse of the text but no option for attachments.) I once hear Fr Richard Rohr OFM being taught by a Rabbi to say "Yah" breathing in and "Wey" breathing out - as the Father is the breath within us. I have read scriptures but always pick something up from your posts - Thanks.
  • irvin / abe davis on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Incredible!! Thank you so much!!! I too have struggled with why Yehova's (everlasting existence) name wasn't "translated"! The part about "mens tradition's" is so apt also! A great article! Thanks again!! abe
  • Craig Wilson on How I Unexpectedly Learned God’s Name in Israel (& About the Joel 2:32 Revival)Aloha My Brother in Christ Jesus who was sent by the Holy One Jehovah! And by the Spirit of God I send you greetings! My question is that Isaiah called Jehovah by El Shiddiah, did he not and it was Jehova who told him his name! Could this also be a possible name in the "end times" when we call out HIS Name? Mahalo and love your teachings! I some day hope to support you more! ✝️✡️ Craig
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Connie, nobody yet is the Beast or False Prophet nor can come to power as such until we are warned first as Bible prophecy indicates. Don't be concerned about such speculation on who the Antichrist is.
  • C F on Support Team Members Content OnlyI agree with this, I am not biblicaly smart at all, and the spirit keeps telling me wait for Elijah.
  • Tim McHyde on Why Is the Tribe of Dan Not in Revelation 7’s 144,000?David, Are you saying that human scribes copying document of 700,000 words by hand never make a mistake or introduce an error in the process? Are you unaware that there are thousands of varying manuscripts of the Bible that don't agree because of "human error?" If not, next time you open your Bible look at the footnotes that say, "Other manuscripts say XYZ instead of the ABC reading listed." HTH - Tim
  • Connie on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)I've been worried lately about Ahmadinejad. Perhaps, it's because I keep thinking about what other Christians had said on CBN. Branding him as the "beast" and "false prophet" if he wins. I understand he's a concerning person, however how concerned should I be? If it's okay for your opinion.
  • David Myers on Why Is the Tribe of Dan Not in Revelation 7’s 144,000?So! Are you saying there are errors in the Bible?
  • Tim McHyde on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIGreg, (good to hear from you). "Soon" and "near" are not absolute or objective terms. They are relative and subject to who is speaking and what their perspective is, i.e. how they're using the words. From the writer's infinity perspective, 2000 years is soon. Since it can be demonstrated that the bulk of Revelation has not taken place yet (try fitting Rev 6:12-17, a plain literal prophecy, into historic events), it must be that God meant "soon"/"near" from his eternal perspective.
  • Greg Kiser on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIBro' Tim, in taking things so literal, how do you answer Revelation 1:1-3 which clearly says the things in the book were "at hand" and "near" to the original readers?
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus Told His Disciples One Sign of the End, But Do You Understand It?Sam, sure, you could say a nuclear attack fits some of that, but nuclear bombs don't trigger a global earthquake that moves every mountain and island out of place (Rev 6:12,14). Nor do they cause an object the size of a mountain to fall in the ocean from space so that it burns with fire, nor for the calendar to change. Only a dwarf planet passing close to earth explains the massive changes and massive amount of material pummeling the earth from the 6th seal to the 4th trumpet.
  • Sam on Jesus Told His Disciples One Sign of the End, But Do You Understand It?Hello! I was just reading the two verses that have predictions in them, and I was wondering, couldn't a nuclear war also trigger this? I mean, terrifying signs and great sights in heaven, the sun goes black, mountains are moved (completely bombed to bits), etc. I was just wondering! Thank you so much and praying for you. Sam
  • Kathy O on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIWhat if the Vatican is the city on the hill? St. Peter's. Templum Vaticani ?
  • Anton on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIHi Tim, Could you please comment on what is said in this article! http://www.the2017sign.com/ Best regards Anton Fritz.
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Pamela, John 14:2-3 is a cultural reference to the Jewish marriage where the groom goes away prepares a place for his bride and then comes back and gets her to bring her there. We do indeed go to heaven as the bride for the marriage supper while the wrath of God falls on earth for 10 days. Once that marriage picture is fulfilled, then we return to do our work together with him, ruling in the Kingdom of God on earth.
  • Tim McHyde on How and Why We Moved To GermanyBarbara, the 8th edition is still the latest however if you want my latest research for my next book, check out the support team articles.
  • Pamela Edwards on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)To Tim , why would Jesus go and prepare a place for us Mansions? when and where does that fit in ?
  • Barbara Lindsay on How and Why We Moved To GermanyTim, I have your book, "Know the Future". Have you made any updates to it in the last year or so? If so, I would like to get those! Thanks for all you do!!
  • Lisa on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsPrince, You are right. Their argument that this sign is about Jesus's coming the first time doesn't hold up.
  • Tim McHyde on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIICofeedoc, the Israeli government won't even let the citizens pray on the Temple Mount (yes it's their law, to keep peace). So letting them build a temple seems far-fetched at this point (as it has since they gave the control of the Temple Mount back to the Muslim Waqf). Get rid of the Muslim force and Muslim control, then the Temple can happen...
  • Tim McHyde on The 24 Elders: Who Are They And When Did Get To HeavenDavid, interesting, except all of the 12 apostles (like John!) were still alive at the last resurrection that could have got them into heaven by the 90AD writing of Revelation when they are seen in Heaven by John. When you die you don't walk around heaven unless a resurrection has happened, as happened when Jesus died in 30AD, the graves were opened and many (24?) saints came to life (Mt 27:52).
  • David on The 24 Elders: Who Are They And When Did Get To HeavenI believe that the 12 + 12 are the 12 elders of Israel & the 12 apostles
  • Tim McHyde on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIThomas the same economy we've seen America have since the decline of the UK and ascent in WWII of America to the top of the worlds economies and militaries. America began fitting Revelation 18 ever since then and has not stopped and will not until Russia burns her in 30 minutes.
  • coffeedoc1 on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIPerhaps a move by Israel to build the Temple on the Mount will trigger the middle east war. I know, Tim, that you talk about the Middle East war clearing the way for Israel to proceed with building the Temple, but Israel initiating such a project could stir up the surrounding nations in just such a way as is required for the psalm 83 war to occur.
  • Tony Ruby on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIII picture NYC, the harbor, Statue of Liberty as representing America. A few years ago I was driving into Long Island and encountered a sign that read "Welcome to Babylon". There is a town or city in view of the above that is named Babylon, that was enough to further convince me..
  • Thomas Garza on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIITim, what economic conditions pre-exist Russia's surprise attack ? Following your points about a current attack resulting in global economic collapse, wouldn't there of a necessity be an "Economy" in place that allows Russia to survive taking out America ? Pretty sure you have explained this but I don't remember. Thanks
  • Miguel Solano on Torah Feasts & Holy Day Calendar 2017I think we, two friend of mine and I celebrated Passover on the wrong day. We celebrated the pass over on Monday night, and Tuesday the 1st day of Unleavened Bread. If I remember well, on the week of the sacrifico, Jesus celebrated the Passover on the evening of Tuesday (which is already the night part of Wednesday, died on the daytime of Wednesday, and then the 1rst Day of Unleavened Bread began that night Thursday (beginning on what we now call Wednesday evening. Do you have any comments?
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus Told His Disciples One Sign of the End, But Do You Understand It?Carol, the Bible does not say about pets and our place of safety on earth anymore than it does about dogs going to heaven. But I don't see why pets can't come with us to safety. I would not worry, God plan's are usually excellent, yes?
  • Carol on Jesus Told His Disciples One Sign of the End, But Do You Understand It?Yes I know when we flee what happens to our dogs I know god put them here for us but we all love our pets what happens to them worried
  • Johnny on Know the Future – 8th EditionLet the dead bury the dead,however we see darkness to bring the light and bring eternal life by our faith and our works and our Father in heaven will take car the rest.Lets Bring eternal life in to every situation. Shalom In Jesus Name GOD Bless.
  • Tim McHyde on True Prophet vs False Prophet: How to Tell When Elijah Comes?Charles, if you read the article then you would have your answer. Elijah already was followed by John the Baptist who the angel declared the fulfillment of Mal 4:5 but was obviously not the first Elijah from the dead. If the partial fulfillment of Elijah was a new man, then it follows that precedent that the next one, the final Elijah, will be a new man. HTH.
  • Charles Stewart Jr on True Prophet vs False Prophet: How to Tell When Elijah Comes?As always, I leap to the simplest explanation my simple mind can conjure up. Why could there not be ONE Elijah who makes multiple sequential appearances?
  • Tim McHyde on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIJohn, nothing missed here on the city point. NYC is the chief/greatest city of America and stands for the nation of America in the prophecy. Just as recently Russia speaks of "Washington making a mistake" referring to Trump's action on Syria, so too, NYC stands for America. Or you don't really think Russia is going to strike NYC and not the rest of the nation at the same time to reduce the retaliatory strike?
  • Tim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsZachary, you get it. There is no "peace treaty" in the Bible. They misrepresent what Dan 7 says about a 7 year "pact" into some public peace treaty, which is not there. It's a private conspiracy as Rev 17 clearly details.
  • Tim McHyde on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIAl, yes Jer 50-51 and Rev 17-18 are parallel prophecies about America whose chief greatest city is NYC. See this exhaustive article for all the info on all the America prophecies in the bible.
  • AusKiwi on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIII"I’m just having difficulty imagining a scenario where the ME countries group together (including Saudi Arabia, possibly Iraq, and others) and attack Israel" The Scriptures make it quite clear that it will be the other side of the current Syrian war that will invade Israel - Persia (Iran) aligned with Russia, Turkey, Libya and Sudan (modern day Ethiopia). A large component of the rebel forces trying to take down Assad come from North African countries like Libya and Sudan. Turkish forces are also aligned with these rebel groups. A possible scenario is that Israel supported by the US will take down the Syrian regime and destroy Damascus, after which the rebel forces will join forces with Russia to invade Israel. At the moment Putin is on the fence regarding Israel, but if he suffers a humiliating defeat in Syria, he may turn on Israel and use his forces to facilitate an invasion using the various jihadist militias as the footsoldiers, and Russia's high-tech air force for air cover, as well as advanced Russian tanks and weapons on the ground. But we all know the end result of that war. The enemies of Israel will be defeated by Jesus Christ when He returns.
  • John Wall on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIITim, I enjoy reading your viewpoints but I think you are missing it when it comes to "Babylon is fallen, is fallen." Babylon is a city in Revelation 17 and 18....Not an entire nation.... We are talking scores of millions of people leaving a "nation" when as you say the prophet of the Lord tells His people to come out of her. When I do a word study on "city" i.e. Rev. 18:10 "that great city" all my word study sources say the Greek word is "polis." And they all define it as a city not a nation. With all due respect, I think this fact is important to the correct interpretation and understanding of chapter 17 and 18 of Revelation.
  • AusKiwi on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIThe temptation is for people like me in Australia, to think I don't have to move anywhere. I am under no illusions however. When the beast comes for what remains of the Christians, it will be a global move. That's what Jade Helm was all about - a global AI system whereby all of Babylon's forces will be co-ordinated in one massive swoop to try to capture or kill resistance to the global beast regime wherever they may be. I don't believe in some kind of limited "escape from America" scenario. I believe in a global rapture escape scenario. For those who are too worldly to believe that God will deliver what he has promised in His Word, I pray he will be gracious and allow all who believe in His name to be raptured regardless.
  • anna on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)lol I enjoyed reading your article, Tim. It's true many try to guess the year and always get it wrong. I think you're right people want Jesus second coming to be true because they want so badly that a loving God will renew humanity. I wait with expectant joy but I don't need to know the year. If I'm praying and doing good, and submitting to the Divine Will, that is more important than guessing at a date. Much more important to be loving, than to be "right" about a date. When He does come, I'd like to him to know and recognize me 😉
  • Patrick Kiio on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIII have been reading your articles but this one is quite unique and it makes all the sense. God loves His people so much that He sends a prophet to warn them. It has happened before and it will happen again. But it seems that the prophet Elijah will be sent to warn Israel! Malachi 4:4-6; Matthew 11:14. This is when Jacob's trouble starts. What about the Church. There is no where the Church gets a warning by a prophet. The Holy Spirit directs us. Like now, there are a lot of warnings that people should repent because He is coming anytime for the believers in Christ Jesus.
  • AusKiwi on Isaiah 17: When Will Israel Nuke Damascus? The Clue in Psalm 83It occurs to me, after the demonstration of the MOAB bomb in Afghanistan this week, that it wouldn't take too many of those bombs to turn Damascus into a ruinous heap. If Israel or the US didn't want to go nuclear against Damascus and risk nuclear fallout polluting Israel which is only a few miles away across the border at the Golan Heights, using very large conventional bombs could be the way they will do it. Perhaps the demonstration in Afghanistan was aimed at scaring Assad of Syria just as much as Kim Jong-un of North Korea.
  • Al Ramsay on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIII"After exhaustive research, I've concluded that this prophecy can only literally refer to the coming destruction of the United States of America. In Revelation 14, the fall of Babylon the Great is tied to the rise of the Beast." Have you ever thought the following verse applies to the destruction of the USA? "Jeremiah 50:12-13 Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed: behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert. Because of the wrath of the LORD it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues." Your mother is Great Britain and it is a hindermost or later nation.
  • Tim McHyde on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIZachary, I don't know why you have difficulty seeing a M.E. war with America around. The Arabs already banded together three times (1948, 1967, 1973) to try to take out Israel. America could send troops later, but if the Israeli army is defeated, it's too late. It's a tiny country and with WMDs can be defeated too quick for America to respond. Make sense? Anyway for sure, WWIII "Babylon has fallen" does not come until after things are set up in the M.E. for us to flee there, the Muslim control of the temple mount be removed for the 144,000 and for a temple to be built for the Antichrist.
  • K.C. on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsDeborah, you took the words right out of my mouth. Good job. 😉 Seems so simple to me. I agree, the woman is Israel, with the 12 tribes as stars and Jesus is the male child that Israel gave to the world. The moon she stands on is a symbol for Israel (lunar calendar) and the sun clothing her is perhaps symbolic of Christ, who clothes all who believe with His light. Catholics claim this woman is Mary. But they also say Mary was born without original sin (Immaculate Conception). But if she were born without original sin, she would have not have had the pain in childbirth that the verse signifies. Great pain in childbirth is part of the curse and not something she would have been heir to as a sinless person. Of course she was NOT born without original sin, nor sinless, else why does she call God her savior in Luke 2? We may disagree on this, and not trying to start an argument, but imo, I believe Satan is cast out of heaven because the rapture has occurred, the Bema Seat judgment has taken place, and there is "no longer any place for him" at God's throne as the accuser of the brethren. Of course it could be a mid-Trib casting-out also. (There could even be two raptures, one of white winter wheat (in the spring) and one of hard red wheat (in the fall), signifying the brethren who come to faith by the mid-Trib, but have to suffer some of the Trib before they are rescued.) If the Tribulation is God's wrath, then I do see why God will exert His wrath on His Bride, especially when we see Abraham pinning God down on that score in Gen. 18. God does not destroy or afflict the righteous with the wicked and says so explicitly. (Some people object, saying the Church has suffered since her inception. But persecution of the Church in ages past and present is Satan's wrath, not God's. Jesus said if they persecuted Me, they will persecute you.) People say we are protected from God's wrath in situ, but how do you protect someone from a plague of intense heat from the sun, or from inflation, or famine, or nuclear bombs going off (the elements melting with intense heat) or the stars falling from heaven, or no light of a lamp? The Bride is sprinkled throughout the world. What is to be gained by keeping the Bride here to witness all the blood and gore, including that of their family members? True, those who come to faith after the rapture will endure those things. It will be a form of fast-track sanctification and testing, to prove those who are His. Will they choose temporary comfort or eternal life? I've also thought that because Noah, a type of the Gentile believer, was commanded by God to enter the Ark seven days before He brought the flood of rain upon the earth, that it was an embedded hint of the pre-Trib rapture. The Ark is Christ. The physical typology will be fulfilled by the spiritual typology of the Church being raptured to where Christ is seven years before God brings the destruction by fire. That seven years will be spent, imo, in the Father's house as the Bridal Week, consummating the wedding (whatever form that takes), followed by the wedding feast on earth at the Second Coming, where we are joined by the OT saints and the Tribulation saints, who will be priests of God and Christ for 1,000 yrs. By the way, Noah was told to go into the Ark on the 10th day of the second month.
  • Zachary Miller on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsDeborah---I'm guessing Tim was using the phrase of "peace treaty" to indicate an agreement that was "public" (known to everyone). The covenant appears to be an agreement made between the actors involved and is probably secret in nature---so there isn't going to be some external indicator which tells us that some agreement has been made.
  • Zachary Miller on One Reliable Sign of the End – A Dire Prophecy About America, Russia & WWIIIGreat article as usual Tim! One item that I'm still struggling with lies in the 'timing' of WWIII in relation to the Middle East war. If WWIII takes place PRIOR TO the Middle East war that 'may' open up Isreal to immigration (like you've already stated). However, I keep wondering about the 'catalyst' which begins about the Middle East war (Isaiah/Psalm)---To me, it seems like an end to America could greatly speed up this process (either America doesn't exist OR it's power has been greatly diminished by internal struggle/economics, etc..). If this were the case then the problem would still exist for getting people INTO Israel (if America falls first)---In any case, I'm just having difficulty imagining a scenario where the ME countries group together (including Saudi Arabia, possibly Iraq, and others) and attack Israel IF the US is still somehow 'in the mix' (ie: exists OR has the ability to extend its military reach as it does today)....
  • Deborah (Discerning the World) on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsThese verses from Revelation tell the story from the time there was a war in heaven and Satan was cast out - to Israel being faithful - the coming of Jesus Christ - His birth, -His ascension to the Father, His return - Satan 's wrath on Israel and all Christians right up to the coming 7 year Tribulation - God's promise to Israel to protect her during the Tribulation for 3.5 years etc, etc, etc. The woman is Israel, the 12 stars represent the 12 Tribes of Israel. Mary (Israel) gives birth to a man child (who is Jesus Christ). It's Israel who goes into the wilderness where God protects her from Satan's wrath for 3.5 years during the tribulation. The man child is Jesus Christ who the Satan/Dragon was there to destroy from the moment He was born. Please read the whole chapter of Revelation 12 as a whole not just 1 verse here and there to understand what's happening. Just in case I get lambasted for this, this is just my opinion 🙂
  • Deborah (Discerning the World) on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsHi Tim McHyde You said: "Also there is no “peace treaty” anywhere in Bible prophecy. That’s more speculation ignoring context." Let's call it a 7 year covenant then... Daniel 9:27 "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. "

  • spherical earther on Flat Earth Debunked by Bible ProphecyMy biggest complaint of the flat-earthers is that their so-called "proof" of a flat earth is achieved or acquired from only a handful of various scriptures in the bible that they have chosen to interpret literally, as opposed to metaphorically as intended, yet allow the thousands of remaining scriptures to retain their metaphorical interpretations without question. Who decides which scriptures are to be interpreted literally and which ones metaphorically??

  • Tim McHyde on 42 Day Fast To Cure Ulcerative ColitisOr if anyone wants to use the cheap, at home, self-administered colitis cure I used to end 20 years of ulcerative colitis (that numerous shorter fasts helped but did not cure) check out Shelby Gesenways vitamin E cure. It works and really is a permanent cure.
  • Alena on 42 Day Fast To Cure Ulcerative ColitisI had never heard of Ulcerative Colitis till the time I was diagnosed with it. I am a retired professor and some years ago a tragedy happened in my life when I lost my son. After that unfortunate incident I started remaining unwell. My bowel movements became more frequent and over a period of time, I even started getting some bleeding. On a visit to a gastroenterologist I was told that I had Ulcerative Colitis. When I searched the net for further infomration on this disease, I found that allopathy had no cure for this trouble. Then one day I read an article by Dr Oyekpen in The Tribune, which mentioned about its treatment with Herbal liquid medicines. I contacted Dr Oyekpen and he started my treatment. I started getting better within the first seven days. My bowel movements are completely normal now and am cured, contact Dr, Oyekpen on his email, droyekpenherbalhome@gmail.com or call/whatsapp +2348168257144, you can also message him on facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Dr.Oyekpen/ Thanks.

  • Brian Upton on Isaiah 17: When Will Israel Nuke Damascus? The Clue in Psalm 83Tim I read the whole piece, on Isaiah 17 - very good. Now I would like to offer THIS: I was on the Kitty Hawk in the Pacific Ocean in 1962 during the cold war between US and Russia. We (the US) were to detonate a nuclear device over the Pacific, and we were told when, and where to look. Now-declassified documents indicate that the nuke we set off, more that 800 Mi from Hawaiian Islands, fried, toasted, and otherwise destroyed electrical and electronic systems, due to EMP energy. Then, in 1971/72 I worked on a Top Secret project on the south side of Kirtland AFB Albuquerque, doing data collection from an Aries Missile guidance system, to determine the vulnerability to EMP. I can tell you, the EMP threat is real, an Newt Gingrich has said. THEN - while Pres. Bush was still in office, Achmadenijad (sp?) became irritated over some political move the U.S. was considering, and announced publicly, that "if you (the U.S.) persist in this, we (Iran) will 'blind' you". You say that Israel enjoys superiority, due to their nuclear arsenal. I agree. I also believe, that Iran, knowing how the U.S. has, and will back Israel, Iran will not risk "going after" Israel, unless and until, the U.S. has been neutralized. Which, may be their initial, and formost plan in developing nuclear weapons - the first use, not against Israel, but in taking down the U.S. power grid, which, in A DAY, will render us helpless to respond. THEN Iran will go after Israel. That's my vision. 817-528-1694 C
  • Neil on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsTim, I'm sure someone has pointed out to you by now that your dogmatic statement in an answer above may not be quite accurate - "when Rev 12 speaks of “a male child born of a woman, who ascends to heaven and rules all nations with a scepter of iron,” and I use Scripture to show the only one who fits this description is Christ". It may not be accurate in that it doesn't take into account Revelation 2:26-27 - "To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’—just as I have received authority from my Father." The one who rules with an iron sceptre can be equally the church, ruling with Jesus during the Millennium. And that opens the possibility that the male child could be the church. But I expect you are already aware that Revelation 12:1-2 are considered key pre-trib rapture verses for this reason. I am still wrestling with this whole thing so I would be very interested in your view.
  • Todd on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)If you are a true believer, ("believe" in the bible implies devotion, not just an academic statement) you are ok. Many who "prophesied in Jesus' name" didn't really believe. I think I saw one once, or rather, my sister did...a psychic with a picture of Jesus above the table of Tarot cards. Now, I could be wrong and she might have just been very, very confused, but I think she used Jesus' name to get more customers. Kind of like the Simon who wanted to buy the power of giving the holy spirit; suddenly his faith was not all that certain to Peter. If you believe in Jesus, that he is your lord, the lord, and rose from the dead, you will not face the wrath of god in the end times. As for Harold, we can only guess---it depends on what is really in his heart.
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Deanne, did any of the other "rises in tension" such as the entire decades of Cold War result in WWIII? This is less and won't be any different. WWIII won't happen until Russia has nothing to lose in sinking the world economy which is what happens when you destroy the reserve currency of the world. Until then, it's just more "wars and rumors of wars but the end is not yet" (Mt 24:6) that Jesus expressly said must come but to not be troubled by.
  • Andreas on Isaiah 17: When Will Israel Nuke Damascus? The Clue in Psalm 83Thank you for this article. On April 7th Sweden had it's second terrorist attack and people have died this time.

They are just waiting for the right time to attack, for more Muslim refugees to come so that Jihad is effective and Islam victorious. But it will not happen.

  • Christopher Fall on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Is that Flora's way of saying, "here's a link ,let me educate you, cause you clearly haven't read much on this subject"? BTW been reading your site all day, have had some anxiety about America and absolutely being convinced it is Babylon and will definitely fall. I used to be somewhat of a rapture person when I was young due in part to the Left Behind series, but I grew out of that opinion pretty quickly and have never understood how you could come to that conclusion biblicaly, let me tell you I have no problem hopping this ship when that day comes. It's actually a great relief hearing some of this stuff. When you think of all the financial problems, immigrating etc... it's overwhelming to think about. I'll keep studying for a little bit here. Bless you for putting this out there.
  • Deanne on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Tim, As a college student prone to anxiety attacks, I'm freaking out. You say we're good about WWIII until 2026, but what about the rising tensions between the US and North Korea? I mean, the US just sent a navy strike group to the 'Korean Peninsula'. Could we possibly bring heading down that path already?? I've already had two panic attacks this weekend over this, so any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and have a nice day!
  • Tim McHyde on The 24 Elders: Who Are They And When Did Get To HeavenYahtzaphan, I don't know how many graves were opened; it does not say. If they were the source of the 24 elders as I believe, then 24 makes sense. But your objection to 24 indicates to me you think this was the first resurrection for all the righteous that you made a brief list of. It is not. This is the "Christ the Firstfruits" resurrection, nothing more. The big resurrection of Enoch and everyone else righteous will come later as my other article explains.
  • Johann Cronje on Isaiah 17: When Will Israel Nuke Damascus? The Clue in Psalm 83Hi Tim, Pardon me for having a different opinion. I very seldom differ with your views. I do find it difficult to evaluate Psalm 83 as a “prophecy” or perceived future event still to take place PARTICULARLY for the Jewish State of Israel. By saying this, it does not mean that there would not be a future ME war in the region. I have no doubts about Isaiah 17 and the end of Damascus. The scenery however has changed with regards to the “people” of ancient times versus today. The Psalm was probably written and born out of fear for ancient Israel’s enemies who are coincidently still the same nations living as neighbors to the land of Israel today. The whole idea must be viewed and understood as in the time that the Psalm was written whilst “THY PEOPLE” was then still present in the land of Israel. Today, “THY PEOPLE” are not totally made up by the few Jews living there. Perhaps, partially only. They,“THY PEOPLE” are today represented by the scattered Israel nations and are also those called “THY HIDDEN ONES”!! So they are “hidden” elsewhere on earth and yes, the heathen world still has the same agenda to wipe the descendants of Israel (or anyone representing the name of Israel) off the face of the earth wherever they are to be found! It is therefore also very difficult to direct any unfulfilled prophecies with regards to the true nation of Israel and allocate them to the current Israeli (Jewish) nation. God’s true covenant people “THY HIDDEN ONES” are millions more and they are to be identified and found elsewhere. The fact that the so-called “Gentiles” are the “HIDDEN ONES” and were all along the “Lost/scattered” nations of the House of Israel remains a “HIDDEN” mystery to many Christians. The reason for this misconception is because of the “deceitful” lie that the “Jews” as a single nation represent true Israel of old, who have supposedly returned to their land. Yes, there certainly may be a number of true Judeans amongst the ‘Jews”. The reality is that they are predominantly the descendants of Esau’s (Edom) mixed races. Their main enemies are the descendants of Ishmael and together they all claim the land that belongs to Jacob (true Israel) currently scattered across the globe. Who and where are they (God’s True Covenant People): Yesterday, today and forever? The reference to the above can only be attributed to the total 12 tribes of Jacob (Israel) and none else. (No single nation) could claim this identity of “THY PEOPLE” for themselves and certainly not the 6 million Jews (Israelis) or a potion of them living in the State of Israel! Therefore it is also rather selfish and deceitful for the Jewish State to claim the words of God Yahweh entirely for themselves - “I will bless those who bless Israel. (Genesis 12:3) Which Israel? True Israelites (Yisraelites), are the people formed from the many millions of physical descendants of Jacob/Israel now living in, and scattered throughout, all the Nations of the globe. Enemies of the scattered Israel nations may very well still utter the words of - “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance”. Let us rather consider Psalm 83:5 as Jacobs troubled time and being part of Revelation 17:12 “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.” Psalms 83:3: They have taken crafty counsel against “THY PEOPLE”, and consulted against “THY HIDDEN ONES”. Psalms 83:4: They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. Psalms 83:5: For they have consulted together with one consent : they are confederate against thee: Numbers 6:27 "So they shall invoke My name (Yahweh) on the sons of Israel, and I then will bless them." 2 Chronicles 7:14 – and “My people” (Israel) who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal “their land”. 15"Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in “this place”. Scattered Israel currently lives in many countries as in “their land” and their “time of trouble” is to be found in many “places”. 2 Esdras 6:58 “But we “thy people”, whom thou hast called thy firstborn, thy “only begotten”, and “thy fervent lover”, are given into their hands.” Where are (Thy people) today? Scripture gives us many answers to the whereabouts of His Scattered/Hidden People = Jeremiah 30:11 - 'For I am with you,' declares the LORD, 'to save you (MY people – Israel); For I will destroy completely all the nations where I have scattered you, Only I will not destroy you completely But I will chasten you justly And will by no means leave you unpunished.' Deuteronomy 4:27 - "The LORD will scatter you (Israel) among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations where the LORD drives you. Psalm 106:27 - And that He would cast their (Israel) seed among the nations And scatter them in the lands. Romans 11:26Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) 26 And so all Israel will be saved. As it is written, The Deliverer will come from Zion, He will banish ungodliness from Jacob. Jeremiah 31:10Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) 10 Hear the word of the Lord, O you nations, and declare it in the ISLES and COASTLANDS far away, and say, He Who scattered Israel will gather him and will keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.
  • Yahtzaphan on The 24 Elders: Who Are They And When Did Get To HeavenBut they appear before any human are you telling me that only 24 graves were open?

  • Tim McHyde on Isaiah 17: When Will Israel Nuke Damascus? The Clue in Psalm 83Abe, Actually it's not Revelation but Daniel who mentions taking away the "daily oblation" sacrifice several times, Dan 8, 9, 11, 12. In context there is no doubt about what it's talking about, the daily sacrifice done at the temple and stopped by Antiochus Epiphanes who sacrificed a pig on the altar instead. It talks about it happening again under the Antichrist, so we should expect the same thing, right? So for me, it can't be about Jesus because his death was one time not daily. Plus the daily sacrifice was not the main one pointing to him, but that's the Passover lamb, yes? Also there's pretty clear plain text in the Bible on another temple during the Great Tribulation for the Antichrist to sit in. Now I realize many Christians prefer the view you have and that there is no temple ("we are the temple") and no sacrifices ("it would be an affront to Christ's sacrifice to have animals killed again!") but this is what the Bible plainly says to me. Plus there's no problem with sacrifices again with what Christ did as I cover in this post.
  • Tim McHyde on Isaiah 17: When Will Israel Nuke Damascus? The Clue in Psalm 83Tina, I can't see Israel ever making a treaty promising to that use their nuclear weapons because it's the nuclear superiority is the only thing keeping the Arabs from joining together again to wipe Israel out like they tried three times already. For your other question, read Isaiah 17 yourself and you will see that it's describing a war about people trying to destroy Israel and this is what happens to them that they get burned up. Also notebthat there are casualties In north Israel too which fits a war that both sides have casualties even if Syria got the worse end.
  • Demagogic Gaming on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Fall , September of this year, 2017 may prove different. Time will tell.
  • Saved on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)No its not a tough call. No one knows the day or hour. His return could be a thousand years away. Why would you refuse to make a wise investment anticipating Christ's return when no one knows when that will take place? As Solomon said men go to and from to understand what God is doing but no one knows even though they proclaim. And Gabriel spoke to Daniel and said many will gain knowledge. But no one can know the day or the hr. So live your life as if Christ's return is far away. Many have done so foolishly like quitting their jobs anticipating his return. And have destroyed their families by going against simple scripture. 23 is a perfect time to invest in your future.
  • Tim McHyde on How We Escape the Great Tribulation: Faith, not a RaptureKristina, Yes, God gives dreams. I've had a few of the real variety. So do many. But Christians every year share dreams saying that the rapture is coming "this year." (Just google "rapture in 2017 dreams" and you will find them.) And every year they have been wrong. Why does this happen? Because Satan and his demons gives dreams, too. That's why John says we must "not believe every spirit but test the spirits" (1Jn 4:1). Christians generally assume if they got an inspired dream then God must have been behind it. They don't test it against Scripture. Scripture does not literally support a rapture before the Tribulation. The handful of verses on the rapture all tie it to the resurrection at the second coming and after the tribulation period. Tim
