  • Peachy on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Assuming the UN is "the beast" then it would appear as though Jesus won't be coming before 2030 indeed. In 2015 pretty much all nations signed the "sustainable goals" for the year 2030...that's when there will be "one world power."
  • Jules on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Curious how is it that you know but yet can't tell us how you know. If not even Jesus or the angels know why do you? Not trying to be mean but if you could elaborate that would be awesome.
  • Tim McHyde on 10 Reasons You Will Likely Reject God’s End Time EscapeZachary, thanks for thinking so deeply on my warnings and it's OK if you don't agree. I wrote #10 quickly and could have explained it better. By your own words, the fact that God knew Lot's wife could not resist looking means he set up an obstacle for her to not reach safety. That's what #10 is talking about. We don't know why if she was righteous and dedicated to God like her husband was (2Pe 2:7) or not. If you don't have God's help like #10 says, you're in an uphill battle for #1-9 and all the rest that I did not think of covering. Peace.
  • Tim McHyde on Revelation’s 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At DeathJohn, of course, people are being born in the Millennium since there will be regular humans who survived God's wrath (Zech 14:16) and they need to have the full experience of family life for their growth.
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too Late (Not Bitcoin)Aidan, read the article I linked in my previous comment. Rev 14:11 does not say the punishment lasts forever, only that the smoke rises forever, which is an idiom and not literal if you compare to other passages like. Even if it was literal, it's just the smoke; People don't burn forever. Fuel gets consumed.
  • John on Revelation’s 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At DeathWould new souls be born during the mill & post-mill years?
  • Aidan on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too Late (Not Bitcoin)Can you explain why you think this to be true? No one else I can find even on the internet thinks you can be saved after the mark- I cannot find any agreement, not that I need anymore. I so badly hope this is true for people who I know won’t make the right choice but scripture seems to be clear in Rev 14:9-11.... seems super clear cut that they will be tormented forever. I want you to be right I just want myself (and others in comments) to see your response to this! Blessings
  • Matas Dulkė on Three Big Events I Expect In 2022 Based On Two DreamsInteresting thoughts. Thank you for sharing. It definitely seems possible.
  • Aidan on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too Late (Not Bitcoin)If I take the mark can I be saved? I know the move will be so difficult for me to just pick up and leave my family.., and if I don’t make it or I’m too late I’ll have to take the mark. Do people who take the mark through deception just go to hell to be burned up! It seems slightly not fair for the tribulation generation to have this great deception and mark of satan when others didn’t have to go through the worst time period on Earth. Does mark mean damned forever? If I stay in South America, does that mean 1) I take mark 2) killed by nuclear war 3) tortured and murdered. This all is overwhelming.
  • Mike Anderson on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)The asteroid is fictional as far as I can tell: "A hypothetical asteroid impact scenario will be presented... Although this scenario is realistic in many ways, it is completely fictional and does NOT describe an actual potential asteroid impact." https://cneos.jpl.nasa.gov/pd/cs/pdc17/
  • Julie Fuller on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Hi Susan I'd like to know how you know...Is it something you feel in your spirit? I sometimes think as you do also but then again, I wonder if I have some dread..I hope not because if Jesus isn't coming for awhile I'd like to know! Regards, Julie
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Casey, I don't understand. I will answer your previous question that my dreams are only proof or confirmation for me. I share them for others to seek their own proof and confirmation. We each can get to see God's answer to prayer and guidance in our life with practice.
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Holly, by 2026 the earth's orbit will change after being pelted by Wormwood and that asteroid will no longer be a threat.
  • Casey on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Thanks for replying Elizabeth! I hope you are correct! Tim one more question sorry for bothering again but do you think that your dreams can also be a sign of something thats different other than prophcies?
  • Holly on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Any thoughts on the asteroid that NASA is predicting (96% certainty) to hit on July 21, 2027? https://cneos.jpl.nasa.gov/pd/cs/pdc17/Chodas-Day2-Briefing.pdf Could this be an end time event?
  • Jim Peterson on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Tim: I always look forward to your New Years addition. Much to the disappointment of my Evangelical (AoG) friends Ive been able to show then that the biblical evidence of purgatory is almost greater than the pre-trib rapture. It gets then to read their Bible and not just parrot what they are told.
  • Victor Talbot on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationBen the Illuminati is responsible for most if not all wars and mass murders. I personally don't believe they are human, but the offspring of Satin. I think it's not wrong to hate Satin or evil but with humans, you have to separate the evil from the good in your mind and pray for the good to come out in them see Jesus in them. Even Jesus whipped the money changers. He hated their evil deeds but it was a way to correct them cause he could have easily killed them, which in itself was an act of mercy. As Gandolf once said true courage is knowing when not to take a life but when to spare one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMkb1gp6KsQ
  • Mark on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)I always was puzzled at the release of the Devil after the 1000 year reign of Christ. I think people mistake that millennium as a time when there will be no more death or pain and that's just not so. It says a person who fails to live to 100 will be considered accursed and an 100 year old will still be considered a youth. (Isaiah 65:20) People will still die and the nations will have disputes that the King, Jesus Christ will settle. (Isaiah 2:4) My belief is that when Jesus rules from Jerusalem, He will be sitting on David's throne and will rule the entire world by the Law of Moses. Israel will have 1000 years of relative peace and security, the likes of which the world has never known, yet when the Devil is let out, he deceives the entire world into attacking Jesus and the resurrected saints. Their number is like the sand of the seashore. This will only prove, forever, that sinful flesh cannot keep the Law of Moses, even under the most ideal of conditions. It's sad but not entirely unexpected.
  • Mark on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)The apostles were eager to know when Jesus would come back and establish His Kingdom so it is natural any Christian will be prophesy oriented and we really are too. All the books and movies that have sold very well testify to that. I love prophesy and don't want to miss a thing. Jesus told the Pharisees they were so busy 'diligently' searching the scriptures, they missed the fact that the One those very scriptures foretold was standing right in front of them. I think the lesson there is to always hold fast to all prophesy, but also, don't ignore what is right there in plain sight. Most people didn't realize it at the time, that many of the old testament prophesies were actually being fulfilled right in front of them, in their own time, 2000 years ago. I have a strong feeling most people won't know when the rest of the prophesies begin to reach their fulfillment either. The Bible says that people have entertained angels without knowing it, so I agree with you prophesy is all about Him. His-story.
  • Mark on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)I hope He comes sooner than that, but if He doesn't, that allows many more people to get saved. Its a good thing! The people Jesus says He never "knew" are not really Christians are they?. They have a 'form' of godliness, but "deny its power" This fits pretty well with the so-called Christians who are 'works', or 'sacrifice' oriented. They assume it is by their sacrificing or by their 'own' power/works that God 'owes' them their salvation. My dad was a Jehovah's Witness and I can remember going to the assemblies as a kid before 1975. I can't remember a single witness who didn't assume the end would come that year. It was a reality for them and a big disappointment when it didn't happen. My dad left the religion shortly after. Many other Christian denominations, or individuals have predicted dates and been disappointed, which is why I suspect we are not supposed to set dates of His return, but He never said we couldn't set dates He 'wouldn't' return. You have a much better odds in that forecast. : ) I think the best reason we should always be ready is that none of us ever knows when 'we' will return to God. We have little control over that and it seems to be the best reason to always stay awake and be ready.
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Nes, I'm 100% convinced because of my several personal dreams which I never asked for. But you should not be as they are my dreams and not yours. Seek your own confirmation from God (and don't make any big decisions based on this until they are confirmed) is what I teach in my 2026 article.
  • Johan Pretorius on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Hello Tim, as always I enjoyed this updated article. I have noticed there are mainly two groups of people normally reacting to this article: 1) The disappointed readers who are hoping for a longer period before the end times come to achieve certain goals like finishing school, college, university, marriage etc. These are mostly younger people who have long term plans and still see this current world as a challenge and looking forward long term and are excited about the future. 2) Then you get to the older readers who would like the end times to be sooner due to maybe health reasons, financial difficulties, unhappy marriage live, loneliness, loss of loved ones etc. Normally this group has reached a stage whereby they have had enough of this life and would just like to get out of this age ( I relate to this group and experience the same issues they are going through). So it is very interesting to go through the comments that the people are posting and to try and understand their situations and feelings regarding this article. The main thing I have noticed in the last months is of some people's replies to comments placed by other people giving them advice and encouragement on their issues which is very encouraging for me to see the level of growth of some of your readers on this site. I do not know if these people are perhaps part of your fellowship groups or involved in some other ways but the level of their understanding and knowledge when replying to other people impresses me. I am not going to give any names as examples but I want to thank them for what they are doing and also it takes some workload of you Tim not to reply to each and every query or question being asked regarding your writings. This gives me a feeling that your and Katrina's ministry is growing and more and more people are grasping and understanding what Yeshua preached and what law of Yehovah requires. I am going through a tough time at the moment mentally but one thing I keep on doing is praying as best as I can and stick to Katrina's hourly alarm clock, it does wonders to bring you back to Yehovah. I need to find a way to overcome this slump I am in at the moment and one way is to reread your articles on a regular basis including the comments to get some answers and encouragement to keep on going. To all the supporters and regular readers, a new year is starting and the clock keeps on ticking closer and closer to 2022, 2024, 2026 and 2030. Let us keep on assisting each other and let's hope we can escape all these things. Tim and Katrina, keep up the good work and looking forward to more encouraging articles and especially you tube vlogs. Bless you.
  • Helen Davies on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationSuch deep meat of the Word, which can truly save us from the ignorance of lawlessness. I'm so very thankful to you, Tim, for digging out these truths that we rarely hear anywhere else. You're a true Servant of the Lord and I pray that all who read your teaching will embrace it fully and not let go of it. I'm a much better believer because of knowing you and I am determined that I'm not going to miss one law that can hinder my readiness. Thank you so much! I pray for you and family.
  • Rachael on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)I understand what you're saying Blaze. I felt the same way. I thought Amos 5:18 was meant for those who were mocking the return of Jesus? I'm not understanding why anyone wouldn't hope for all the horrible suffering etc to end in this world?
  • Nes on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)So youre 100% sure that the end is going to come in 2026 and the lords return in 2030 or is it a possibility
  • Ray Oberhardt on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)If anyone asks me about the timing of Christ's return, I say well, we maybe have another 20 years, I don't think we have another 100 or even 50 years, so I'd agree about the 2030 earliest date. But, I could be wrong. There is one thing I'm puzzled about. I looked up the Greek used in Rev 20 for the Millennium - chillia which means thousands - plural, while for exactly one thousand used elsewhere it was chillias. The church through the ages has mostly taken that to mean the Christian era. Then after the Millennium, the devil was loosed. I think that the devil is loosed now - look around. It's strange that the devil is to be loosed again after another 1000 years and after reigning with Christ, people could again be deceived. I think the Bible consistently intimates that Christ will return and we will forever be with the Lord. But, being 75 yo, I'll know within 25 years. Since Rev 13 identifies the geographic location of the beast empire, the Middle East (Leopard (Grecian empire), Bear(Persia), Lion(Babylon)), and other verses identifying the Islamic Caliphate as the 7th head that was wounded (Ottoman empire dismembered 1924) which comes back as the 8th, I think we'll see that happen in 1924 on the 100th anniversary. Erdogan is working to make that happen, supported by Europe and the USA. That's one big event I'm expecting. But I could be wrong. Also the verse in Rev 17 - "...The beast that was, and is not, and yet is." The Caliphate was an empire, officially it doesn't exist but yet it does exist as Islam, united by religion and Sharia. I don't know anything else that fits as well.
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI grew up in fundamental churches and 3/4 of my extended family is Catholic. “Fellowship with like minded believers” isn’t that something?! I can no longer join a traditional church even if I wanted to because they make you conform to their doctrines. I am glad you found the article helpful! It helps me stay focused with the love others part.
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Blaze, although there are some exciting developments coming in the end time (healings, miracles, gospel of the kingdom, unity, etc.), I know very well it will be very different from the comfortable, convenient, free, leisurely time we enjoy now in our rich, developed Western democracies. If I'm honest, I admit I would like the end to come later than I think so I can enjoy more of this. Perhaps that will change as I become less Laodicean but also I don't ever want to desire the day of the Lord (Amos 5:18).
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus’ Four Warnings On How Not To Respond To His Sermon (That We’re All Guilty Of)Tim, I know I have been angry with you in the past. Yet you always patiently pointed me to where the Bible supports what you say in your articles (I have had to read and reread a few). You don’t have to “explain” what the passage really means like so many pastors do. I can read it for myself. So, I thank you for that. I have had to face many misconceptions and untruths taught to me in the past. I am saddened that many don’t want to seek the kingdom and miss out on blessings. I get told so many things. “I am a heretic. Jesus’ message was only for the Jews; Paul’s was for the Gentiles (even tho there is zero evidence Jesus and Paul had a different message). The OT was for the Jews only. The NT destroys the OT” etc etc I finally get why Jesus said it was a narrow path and hard.
  • Blaze on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Psalm 84:10 https://biblehub.com/psalms/84-10.htm Luke 10:24 https://biblehub.com/luke/10-24.htm Personally Tim, I never understood your complaint about having more time. It never made logical, rational sense to me, especially since you have those very same qualities.
  • Elizabeth Becker on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Casey, When I was your age I think I still believed in a pre-trib rapture. The imminency of Jesus’ return without warning scared me more and I remember feeling the same thing as you. I think all young people feel the way you feel regardless of what version of the rapture they believe in. If I can be of comfort to you, the world isn’t ending in 2030. Jesus is returning in 2030 to set everything the way it should be. Even tho you are young, I am sure you are aware of how the world is not right. Jesus is coming to set things right. Until then, keep living and loving. Those are two things Jesus wants. To give us life abundantly and for us to love. Peace be with you.
  • Harry Rogers on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Curious, Susan. While I see your passion I wonder how it is you know for a fact and without a doubt bu then can not explain how you know your facts. I would encourage you to read things such as Tim's articles with an open mind and a prayerful heart before jumping too quickly to words of correction. Be well~
  • Stephen on 4 Plain Proofs America is Babylon + 6 Objections AnsweredGood article. Needed! However, leaving now, if you’re capable, should be an option. The safest option, in my opinion, wheather destruction comes tomorrow or in another 2,000years, would be to leave now. I can eeloborate, but would rather a conversation, the. To simply issue a monologue. However, there is solid proof and reference for this argument. Regardless of the difficulties and hardships, leaving now is the best option.
  • Harry Rogers on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)iGreg, Certainly, at first glance, it would be easy to assume your notions are correct but as you develop a deep understanding by carefully reading scripture of whom the Antichrist will be you can be sure it is not Satan. Rather, this beast - the one we call the Antichrist, (man of lawlessness - son of perdition) and his accompanying false prophet does not fit your notion well. Instead, you can see the Antichrist is a man, empowered by Satan who know his time is short, to bring a man who is empowered to commit all evil against mankind and will, with all effort, work to destroy all Christians he can find. All of this to say that the Antichrist cannot be Satan because it in no way fits the narrative found in Mathew's olivet discourse, Thessalonians, and of course, Daniel. Do not be deceived. Many Christians are asleep and in real danger of completely missing the escape of the soon to come end of days. Those that do will be surely persecuted to the point of death and torture. Most Christians will cave to cultural pressure and deceptive teachings that lure them away from salvation in Christ. Please do not be one of them. Be awake and alert. Pay attention with an open mind and willing to accept truth even if it challenges our faulty assumptions - this takes much backbone and willingness to accept beliefs that we are heavily vested in. Sadly, most are unwilling to part of with notions that they have spent their careers, lives, and name on because it os much easier to believe a lie than it is the hard truth. Be well.
  • Todd Kemp on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationElizabeth, I love that extra article. I have had trouble trying to explain the concept to many of my "church going" friends as to why I no longer "go" to church but simply try and "be" the church". I started getting the judgmental condemnation for not having fellowship with like-minded christians which ironically is exactly the reason I left the brick and mortar church. Of course I still have fellowship with like-minded christians, it just happens to be in cyberspace with people like Tim and you who help me in pursuit just for the truth. Nothing more, nothing less. Your post will help me better explain why today's church is more like the Pharisee's and Sadducees than they were back in the time of Christ. I've been following and supporting Tim for a long time now and I love his teachings because they hit the truth of the matter and he is always able to back up every argument with scripture...plain and simple. No twisting, no picking and choosing. Pure scripture to support the truth. This is my kind of fellowship. Thank you for sharing your link.
  • Davi ramos on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationTim 2030 and jubilee year 50 years? to close the cycle of 6000 thousand years, or 2017 as ben samuel prophesied?
  • Casey on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Hi Tim. Ever since reading your article on why you believe in 2030 the world could end i have been very sad. I am about to graduate high school in 2019 and i always say, wow i will not have much of a life to live since most likely the world is going to end in 2030. You say you offer no proof but i think your dreams are some what proof and comfirmation. Plus you said as it get closer your dreams start to unfold. That really says it all.
  • Ron Perkins on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI have been a "Christian" since 71 and was taught to "search the scriptures" when I had any questions, doctrines, or teachings I wasn't sure about. I also now believe that unfortunately Christianity has been tainted by the world, satan's lies. the emerging church, ect. Following Christ and His teachings is summed up in His Commandment to Love the Lord God with all your Heart, Mind, and Strength and to Love thy neighbor as thyself! I think we need to understand that it is a daily walk as "we work out our own Salvation with fear and trembling!" { By the way, in the New Testament they were called "Followers of the Way."} Jesus said, I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
  • Alyson Ward on So You Figured Out Christianity Deceived You—Now What? (Parts 1 & 2)I left church in high school about 6 or 7 years ago because I was brought up in a church that was extremely judgmental and love was not very apparent. Shortly after, I discovered your book and articles and that made me feel better about my decision. Still, though, as a person from a religious (but loving) family, I am often questioned and pressured by my mother as to why I do not attend church. She even went as far as to talk to several people in a town I moved to about a church she thought was interesting and asked people if I would be happy there. I am now pregnant with twins, so now she is especially worried about church attendance. I have tried to find a church, but it is incredibly difficult to find one that preaches truth and love rather than false doctrines. I don't believe it's their fault - that's what they were taught, after all. But I feel uneasy about raising my children up in a church that teaches them lies. I will continue to search for a fellowship that is truth and love, but if I fail, I will do my best to teach them Yehovah's way - To love Him and to love neighbor as self.
  • Mario on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationHi Tim, If you read all the negative comments its clear to see why only 1% will be saved...because BILLIONS of people are DECEIVED, you do not know you are deceived and thats why people will always argue. They have been brainwashed by satans fake christianity, by SUNDAY sermons, by religious teachers teaching that you "can do whatever you want" because Jesus already died for your sins...teaching you are saved by grace, you have no worries in the world. Where as, Jesus own teaching says that he came to fulfill the law...not to make it absolute, or take it away. People should be VERY CAREFUL with Pauls teachings, My point is...would you rather follow the TEACHING OF CHRIST HIMSELF OR the teaching of Paul? It's EASY TO RECOGNISE FAKE CHRISTIANITY...IF ITS NOT OF THE ORIGINAL TEACHING OF JESUS E.G KEEPING SABATH AND UPHOLDING THE LAW then you are following fake christianity. JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD, NO ONE KNOWS BETTER, HAVE MORE KNOWLEDGE OR INSIGHT. Most of the 2.5 billion "christians" are deceived. Am I deceived and not another reader here? Not most likely, why? Because I believe the the TEACHINGS OF JESUS AND THAT WE MUST UPHOLD THE LAW, so how can I be deceived if you listen to the MESSIAH? The thing that makes fake christianity so appealing is that people can feel good about their SINS, with fake christianity, you are still saved by grace! You have nothing to worry about...live as you want! you are saved! WELCOME TO FAKE CHRISTIANITY, unfortunately revelation has predicted people will NOT listen, they wil NOT see the truth, so THE TRUTH AND THE FACT IS people will oppose postings like yours and even this one of mine, because they want to live their lives as they want and still be saved...and it s heartbreaking to learn they have to make life changing alterations to follow Jesus as they should, they have to leave their comfort zones, and thats why they will rather attend a church/ charismatic church where they are fooled SUNDAY after SUNDAY into believing its all about Gods love and they can live without fear of repercussions for sin because they have already been "saved"... If you enter a church were a pastor teaches about sin and the law...the church has a few congregants...if you go to a church that focus so too much on Gods love and not laws and teaches salvation no matter your lifestyle there are thousands of congregants. My advice to anyone reading this...always go back to the Bible if someone tells or teaches you something! If your pastor teaches you do not have to abide by the laws of God...then go back to your bible and study it...if you find a different teaching, then follow your bible and NOT your pastor...even pastors may be deceived... there are deacons and priest and pastors who studied at university...they have been "programmed" at these institutions, remember one thing THIS WORLD BELONGS TO SATAN, JESUS HAVE NOT RETURNED TO TAKE IT BACK YET....ITS COMMON SENSE TO ACCEPT THAT SATAN WILL INTERFERE WITH RELIGION AND BIBLICAL TEACHINGS
  • Melzar on Antichrist Identified From 666 and Revelation 13?This may be hard to follow but....Daniel 9:27, wall finished 434 BC(this day holy unto the Lord). 62 weeks later Messiah cut off,(the day the calendar goes to AD. If you go back from this point, 33 years and 9 months,(Jesus age+time in womb). From this new point,go forward to the year Mohammed rode to heaven on a white horse from the temple mount,(the day the Islamic calendar begins and the time span is 666 years. The expected Mahdi will fulfill what is predicted about the beast of Revelation. The shahada requires people to renounce Jesus as Christ or die.
  • Melzar Daniels on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationHi Tim, I enjoyed and agree with your article. Rev. CH. 1-3,seven churches written to, and only two on track. Also, as the golden rule and love is out key mission, how do we know how to love in all situations? The laws of Moses teach how God's defines love. Should we provide welfare to the poor? Don't harvest the corners of your fields. Is it loving to allow capitol punishment for murder? God says yes. Is it loving to buy and sell farm land? God says no. Any democratic nation with a majority of Christians should align their nations policies with Gods law.....if they believe, if they have faith.
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationWoah! I read your article you linked and had no idea what messianics were saying about the grafting in. It makes me not want to say it anymore for fear of being misunderstood! For me I always understood all the passages of grafting, no Jew or Gentile, those in Christ are Abraham’s children as a promise to those in Christ will enter the new covenant kingdom along with ethnic Israel. Not a throwback to converting to Judaism.
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI do believe that too. Maybe I just read her comment wrong. I do believe even someone in a remote tribe who recognizes there is a creator and He wants us to love others God will reward that person.
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationDotun, I'll answer your question with a question: Did God already know the heart of Abraham before he tested him "ten times" (according to Jews) including the last test with Isaac? God knows who is just professing "Jesus is Lord" like Christians and how really intends to do it and will stick with it for eternity in his Kingdom and not bring violence and rebellion there.
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationMark, Look at Jesus words again. He never disputes the works of the Christians in Mt 7:22 or calls works wrong. He tells them they are a law to themselves in what they decided to work on, instead of doing what he said to "do." He very much and very clearly expects those who call him Lord to do God's will which he said is love thy neighbor (Mt 7:12). Yes, there are pitfalls once you start this path like any even correct path. Once someone starts to focus on loving others it's common to do it on ones own strength and fail. You said it. Then pride can also come in. Boasting. However, all of that can be dealt with as part of the learning curve. What you definitely DO NOT want to do is be afraid of all those pitfalls and bogeyman Christians scare you about like "boasting" and decide not to follow Jesus' instructions!
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationElizabeth, Nanette's answer was great; short and sweet. I'm glad you trying to flesh out the faith part since Christians understand that wrong as I explained above. Your answer is close, but forgets that most people lived before Jesus came and still to this day never hear of him, so your definition leaves them out. However, people of any time or place can imagine that our Creator who gave us our lives and everything else is good and have faith in that and that he rewards those who respond to this by seeking him, like Hebrews 11:6 says. That's a universal saving faith that leads to good works and does not require Christianity, a Bible or hearing about Jesus.
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationJohn, I see you are married to this "God has a plan for us and that's the only way he can say he knows us from the womb" idea so I leave you to it and bow out of this debate.
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationElizabeth, actually the new covenant has nothing to do with gentiles OR salvation! The "grafting in" Paul wrote of is to the tree with Jesus as the root, the tree that Israel was a part of and also had to be grafted back into after being cut off. Just as Christianity teaches salvation wrong, they also teach the covenants wrong. Neither the OC or NC is about salvation but about Israel being God's example nation.
  • Tim McHyde on Who Will “Bring Food to the Two Witnesses”?Milionea, sure, anything is possible, but the better question is what is more likely: the plain literal reading about two men who are killed and left in the streets, or some allegory about "people groups" doing all these things?
  • Dotun Adeyemi on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationHi Tim, Great write up. I mostly agree with your submissions. However I wonder how this teaching will handle the case of Christians who genuinely convert and accept Jesus as Lord on their death beds without any chance of rendering works to 'complete their salvation'. Will they also be cast out on the last day due to no fault of theirs?
  • Mark Butschke on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI agree and think part of Jesus's warning to potential believers and believers was not to discourage 'good works' in His name, but the 'expectation' that He now 'owes' us salvation because we worked so hard for Him. The Rock we build on is Him and our salvation depends entirely on that Rock. Whenever I find myself attempting to 'self-improve' I usually find myself moving away from the only One who can 'clothe' me with righteousness. That clothing and 'armor' is what keeps the Devil away and makes me presentable to God, not my white knuckle determination to stop sinning. Only God can 'cover' my sin. It's my faith, but His will. The words, in scripture, that the 'earners' of salvation use to implore the Lord to give them their 'earnings' is what Jesus seems to find so offensive. I see this attitude in many Christian denominations but especially Catholics, with all their 'sacraments' and bead counting, but also Jehovah's Witnesses with their use of the Bible as a self-improvement guide. Their attitude, that we need to 'be good' because God is watching us is a bit askew. Our attitude ought to be like a little child who runs into your arms when they sense fear and not the attitude of 'you better be good, better not pout, better not frown, I'm telling you why....'
  • Victor Talbot on Podcast: Facing (and Fixing) Your Unrighteousness With The End ApproachingThanks for your podcast it's strengthening to listen to.
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationBy faith you are saved. Faith in what? It can’t be belief because the devil, his angels and the demons all believe Jesus exists, that he died and rose again, and they know he’s coming back to judge them and the world. So, faith in what exactly? It is faith in the promise that Jesus will resurrect us, reward us for our good works = love others, and finally save us from our sin nature and it’s consequence, death/non-existence.
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationUnfortunately he just calls it a nice fairytale ☹️
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI agree it is not here yet however Gentile believers are grafted into this new covenant and it isn’t conditional. That is supported in both the OT and NT. Like you say in your book, we will be called back before, during and after Jesus’ return.
  • John Dyer on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationOf course we have free will. How else could we "choose" to not be who we were created to be. That is the whole basis for denying the spirit. Without freewill there could be no "true" love. And if God does not create us to be anything in particular then he could not know us before the foundation of the world or when we are in our mothers womb. He has always known his "plans" for us. But if we decide to stray from that then we become someone he no longer knows. Just Be You
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationElizabeth, actually the covenants are another area where Christianity has deceived us (Mt 24:4-5). The Old Covenant was not at all about personal salvation but conditions for ancient Israel staying in the Promised Land (which they broke). The New Covenant is not here yet and is not with the Gentile Christians but will again be with Israel and Judah when they are regathered and reunited (Jer 31:31-34).
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationElizabeth, tell your pastor friend we bother now because the reward is great: only those who make it now will be the Bride of Christ and rule 1000 years with him (Rev 20:6) and qualify to rule and teach the majority who come later when it's easier in the 2nd resurrection (Rev 20:5). The reward is great like Paul says and not even worthy to be compared to the suffering now (Rom 8:18). (I'll be updating the three resurrections article to address many such objections.)
  • Anthony Ianosel, Esq., L.C. (Ret) on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationIt's high time to STUDY the New Testament's teachings--especially the four Gospels--by employing bible manuals which focus on the Greek Textus Receptus (the text received). We cannot rely entirely on the KJV translation, whereas it has 112 words intentionally supplanted on the instruction of King James, namely the inspired word "ekklesia" is being intentionally removed and replaced with the word "kuriou". The difference is highly consequential! For example, in Matthew 16:18 our Lord Jesus clearly affirmed that His intention is to build "ekkesias" (global congregations)--not churches (kurion)(although the building where ekklesia people meet is "church" (kuriou). The implications are huge! The ekklesia people are "Jesus' people" (my people), while the church building is not! Moreover, those "called out ones" (ekklesia) are HIS SAINTS because they ABIDE IN HIM (John 15:4)(https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+15%3A4&version= NASB Furthermore, most of the Greek verbs are CAST IN PRESENT TENSE MODE (Jesus' blood cleanses us of all sin--I John 1:7-- https://biblehub.com/ 1_john/1-7.htm )
  • Milionea Toluao on Who Will “Bring Food to the Two Witnesses”?It’s referring to believers in Jesus Christ as One. Disciple Peter a Jew = Witness to Jesus...Ohmm?🧐 Disciple Cornelius a Gentile = Witness to Jesus... Ohmm?🙄 Who’s the original two witnesses?🙄Is it Jesus Christ and John the Baptist?😇 Who’s the two witnesses in this present time?🤔?(believers) Is it possible?🤔(individuals, like that of Jesus and John) would they recognize the two witnesses?😇(I think not, they will not see his coming in the spirit). 😇Bless are those that see it and believed it, in this present time.🇺🇸✝️😇
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationNo. The New Covenant is better than the Old because the Old was based on IF. If you obey me you will have my blessing, IF not you will be cursed or destroyed. The New Covenant is not based on anything we do because it is better than the first. God promised to save the world even while ALL were still sinners. It is finished and done. It is what distinguishes true faith in Jesus vs ALL other religions including Christianity in its many forms. With his death and resurrection, Jesus bought everyone from Adam to the last person born (minus Satan himself, fallen angels, and his seed possibly). When he comes back, everyone will know the Lord and not have to be told about him anymore (Jeremiah 31:31). It's truly amazing grace!
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI will admit I have struggled with this but the Scripture is clear. I am not naturally compassionate but I have a great teacher! I am glad to see you add in that you believe 99% will probably be saved in the end. There are so many passages that say all Israel will be saved or all will be saved. It’s just the when we don’t know. I do believe it is extremely hard right now because of the great deception and the struggle with sin plus as evil increases people’s love grows colder but great is our reward if we overcome now. This doesn’t diminish that eternal life is awesome by itself 😁 Been having this conversation with a friend who says if we aren’t saved from eternal torment and people will have a second chance, why bother now? He’s a pastor ☹️
  • Nanette on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationGalatians 5:6 says the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love
  • Blaze on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationMy understanding is you're saved by the faith in keeping the commandment(s). So not keeping the commandment but you're keeping this commandment because you believe in God. But I raised my hand a bunch of times when one church I went to did the close your eyes, is anyone not sure they're saved? I think they were getting a little annoyed. 🙂 But it seems a lot simple now. It takes you years just to figure out how you're saved. But then again not everyone understands these commandments or that they should be doing them. Unless they really DO know and that is not a good argument. I guess if you came across the depart from me verse and didn't take it to heart you didn't really believe it then. https://biblehub.com/ezekiel/33-11.htm
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationBill, thanks, you got it, the summary of the Bible is love which is also the entrance requirement for the kingdom. The 2nd resurrection is in Rev 20:5 and Ezekiel 37. The parables of Jesus don't conflict with it, but they also don't explain it along with many things found elsewhere. Therefore require careful thought and harmonization is required just like with harmonizing the gospels so they don't contradict. To that end, understand it does not say "everyone on the wide path is destroyed." People can get off the wide path along the way before the end. Most will when Satan's deception is gone and they hear the truth. They don't want destruction and nobody is doomed to eternal destruction while deceived, even though the shorthand explanation of the outcomes in Jesus' parables can easily lead people to that wrong conclusion.
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too Late (Not Bitcoin)Tiffany, I'm taking the 144,000 literally at face value. This works as there are people alive today descended from the lost Israelite tribes (12 tribes not just Judah, Benjamin and Levi) just like the text requires. Batchelor says it's a spiritual Israel of 144,000 apostles but that's allegorizing it and spiritualizing Israel, too, (replacement theology) which again there's no need. There is a literal Israel throughout the world, some of whom are Christians, who can be called to this mission as believers in Jesus. As an American, you may be one of them.

  • Bill Walls on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationHi Tim, I really liked your article on the missing third element to Christian salvation. It encourages me to read more of his words and to act daily to keep his will uppermost in my mind. Your article made me think of his response when he was asked what the most important law was? He said to love God and to love your neighbor as your self. Or boiling the entire Bible down to one word it would be “love!” But, if I read correctly you think that God gives a second chance to everyone who isn’t saved in their first life??! Which increases the “saved” from 1% to 99%!!! That doesn’t seem to go together with “depart from me I never knew you!” And the “broad path” leads to “destruction” not a second chance! Where in the Bible do you get the idea of a second chance at salvation? I believe those left behind at the rapture have a second chance, but they are still alive. And I believe God is fair so that he will give everyone including the jungle native that has never heard the gospel a chance to accept or reject him. But that seems different than your idea? Kindest regards, God bless, Yours because His! Bill Walls
  • D. Tiffany on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too Late (Not Bitcoin)Hello Brother Tim, I value your teaching ministry efforts and enjoy reading the analyses you've provided and shared over the years, but you make assertions regarding the 144,000 that are just not found in the scriptures. I hope you'll consider this analysis regarding the question: Who are the 144,000? by Doug Batchelor.
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationTosin, not quite right. You don't "get the salvation" and then "work out your salvation." That's Christianity not Scripture. There's no compelling reason to do anything if you already get your salvation from recognizing Jesus which is why Christians are in the sad state they playing church instead of practicing love. Jesus says "if you want eternal life, love your neighbor" (Mt 19:16-17, 19) and "why do you call me Lord and don't do the things I say?" (Lk 6:46).
  • Tosin on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationGood response. I wish people could just understand this and know where saved by grace not of works lest any man should boast but the salvation puts a responsibility on us to work out our salvation with fear and trembling.
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationTosin, I don't condemn Christianity or Christians; God used both in my instruction. The question is, why did you perceive it that way and feel the need to defend an institution that has deceived all of us about salvation? You learned some truths despite Christianity and so did I, but what about the billions who are not so clever or didn't get to have "your kind of Christianity?" They are lost thinking they are saved (Mt 7:22). Also, I never gave an opinion on Xmas, only pointing out it's from sun worship and this turns off Jews who see God forbade that in the Old Testament. Keep it if you wish!
  • Tosin on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI wonder how you condemn Christianity the way you do in some of your write ups that I read lately and I could see you playing the same god you accused Christians of playing by judging them. I have been a christian since childhood and I can say the kind of Christianity I was exposed to differs from what you portray as being the the way it is practiced where you are or have been but here where I am we believe in Jesus (Yeshua), faith in Him, love for him and towards others and works of righteousness which stems from your faith in Christ Jesus. Their is no way we can exhibit faith without works according to James 2:14-26 and also we cannot love God that we do not see if we cannot love our fellow neighbours that we can see. So any christian who does otherwise doesn't understand the full details of his faith in Christ Jesus. As for Christmas celebration, yes I know Jesus may not have been born on christmas day but setting aside a day to celebrate the fact that God sent His son to us to redeem us from sin is worth celebrating but within me and my heart I know I'm celebrating the crucified Lord that was born for the salvation of the world. Yes, it could be a day that was used to celebrate Zeus before but anyone who regards a day is to him, it is of no worth to Yehovah so if I celebrate His birth and His death does not mean I'm practicing idol worship

  • Linda Hutchison on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationTim, thank-you so much for writing this article. I sat and thought for several minutes after reading it and everything you said is right. My problem has been that I wasn't seeing the needle in the haystack as you put it. After reading and thinking I feel a calm within. Now I know what I have to do. God's blessings to you my brother in Christ.
  • Cody on Frequently Asked Questions of Tim McHyde and EscapeAllTheseThings.comAccording to gotquestions.org “One weakness of posttribulationism is the clear teaching of Scripture that those who are in Christ are not under condemnation and will never experience the wrath of God (Romans 8:1). While some judgments during the Tribulation specifically target the unsaved, many other judgments, such as the earthquakes, falling stars, and famines, will affect the saved and unsaved equally. Thus, if believers go through the Tribulation, they will experience the wrath of God, in contradiction of Romans 8:1. Posttribulationists also face a difficulty in explaining the absence of the word church in all biblical passages related to the tribulation. Even in Revelation 4 — 21, the lengthiest description of the tribulation in all of Scripture, the word church never appears. Posttribulationists must assume that the word saints in Revelation 4 — 21 means the church, although a different Greek word is used.” What say you?
  • Sue on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationLike Bill above, I've read and learned from Tim's work for a few years. It's been exciting and encouraging to see the development of Tim and Katrina's ministry to guide personal spiritual development. I've moved from a fear of missing out (on entering the Kingdom, or being safe during the tribulation) to having a framework and tools to practice the law of love and gain strength (to escape all these things). I often ask myself what kind of person would God and others want to spend eternity with. That helps me consider better choices in thoughts and behaviour. Who doesn't want to hear the words “well done good and faithful servant” Matthew 25:21-23 I lam grateful for the continuing insights from this ministry.
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationMindy, amen our works won't save us or earn salvation as Eph 2:8-9 also says but they are still required. How can that be? Think of your free invitation to a wedding but the requirement to wear proper attire just like Jesus said (Mt 22:1-4). Please see the explanation above.
  • Obiajulu Echedom on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationYour teachings are spiritual classics. Always refreshing ,exciting and challenging. A major reason people dread issing the rapture and therefore label your teachings as heretic is that false belief of burning in hell for all eternity. This is cornerstone belief that cuts across almost all denominations. The thought of oneself or a loved one who missed the 'rapture' not having a second chance can precipitate depression against God. On the other hand if I know that there are multiple opportunities to eventually attain eternal peace with God through the first second and third ressurections then I see reason to target any of the them my faith and the grace of God can enable me. Thanks Tim for these wonderful revelations.
  • P Alex Dillon on Dream: “Fountain of Youth” Healings ComingIt does make me think of some dreams I've been having and still wonder about.

  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationJodi, mercy has nothing to do with the percentage saved today as these so-called "lost" (as Christians label them) do not go to hell like Christianity says. They go to the second resurrection where it's easy to get saved without Satan's lies. They don't become the bride of Christ, but no biggie, it's supposed to be a special honor for few. Likewise it's Christian thinking that the wide path are mainly non-believers mostly. If it's non-believers, the warning does not mean much for Jesus' listeners. They already know most are pagans. But please go back to my study on the four warnings of which the narrow path is the first. The warnings cover what approaches people resort to in respond to hearing Jesus' difficult words instead of acting on them directly as the last warning says is necessary to be on the rock not sand. Well, simply wanting to please God without even a Bible is the start, but you must still seek diligently and stick to it when it's hard. It's going to be rare to find humans who did all that without knowing the Gospel of how God is going to help them when it's hard (Mt 6:33).
  • Mindy Sharrae Robinson on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationHi Ben. Tim does not state that we are not saved if we cannot love all people, he states that Christ asks us to do this and indeed He does ask us to do this and thus because we love Christ we will strive to obey Him in this matter, which , of course , being sinners we will fail. Anyways , it is the striving to obey Christ that indicates our faith and our trust in Him and Him alone. I struggle with even the concept of love these day's, what I mean is that I think it is a word that has different meaning in the bible then the huggy , kissy crap that we associate with that word today. Love to Christ did not mean accepting evil, it meant rejecting evil and teaching those engaged in it about Jesus, it meant praying for those such as hitler, the prayer would have been that he receive the gift of Jesus Christ. hitler lost the real war, spiritual darkness took him, without God's help he did not have a chance of defeating the real enemy, satan. If hitler rose up today I would pray for him, that he receive Christ and be redeemed. God at times let me see thru the Holy Spirit and once showed me those lost to the evil of islam , what was going to happen to them, I don't know how to explain this, I saw what God sees and I felt love for all who are lost and I pray for them. He also showed me that any one of us could easily have fallen to such deceptions as islam , we are blessed when we are not raised with such evil. This applies to hitler as well. In the end those engaged in such evil are doomed, for eternity , their suffering will be great , give thanks that it is not you and pray for those who are lost, pray that satan does not take them. I hope this helps with your struggle, it is something I struggle with as well thought that struggle has lessened since God let me see what He sees and He asked me, what if you had been born a muslim?
  • Jodi Batten on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationTim, I am thinking that the narrow path message isn’t about only the Christians. I always thought the wide path is the lost WORLD going down the road to destruction, and the narrow path is finding life through following God’s way. More simple. So that widens the narrow more including many Christians. I might give Christians a little more credit then you do. 1% I’m not yet sure about. I see God much more merciful, not making it so hard. He knows our state of fallen. I see many many Christians living to serve God because their transformation was so powerful. I could be wrong but I do see the “I never knew you” being about the bad apples of Christianity which I see as not the majority of Christians. I know you would disagree. I love where you simplify that all we need is to do unto others. Many that have no bible knowledge can do this by simply wanting to please God, and as they say, go to heaven.
  • Linda on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationThank you! I have been learning to put on the mind of Christ for decades. Of course, it is easier said then done. Love is the solution to all humanity's problems, yet most continue to justify hate and condemnation instead, thus, denying salvation for themselves. I do my best to love others anyway. Proverbs 26:21 helps, yet I am sorry to say that I enjoy visualizing the heaping of coals on their head a little to much sometimes. I find it easier to love some people from afar; when they get in my face I just want to attack back. And I have been referring to Matt 5:44 as the forgotten commandment, since no one I know even considers it. Thank you for reminding me that in spite of all my failures, loving others is doing God's will!
  • Ben on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationPretty judgmental Matthew on your part, I’m glad you’re not the Almighty. It’s one thing to not love at all, believe me there are people who don’t, and another to find it a struggle to love all people. Maybe you have the capability to see people’s hearts as to why they may not love others and why it doesn’t come naturally for them, even believers, as it comes naturally for you. I can tell you this I have struggled and still struggle with loving all people especially people like the Hitler’s of the world who killed millions of innocent men, women and children in the most heinous of ways I’m sure you seen documentaries on the Nazi death camps or Bashar al-Assad of Syria who routinely gasses innocent civilians, a large amount are children, causing extremely violent deaths. I guess by your standards because I struggle with loving all people it’s a sign I’m not saved. FYI you’re not saved yet either but that’s a different topic all together. In this walk of faith nothing comes naturally “work out your salvation with fear and trembling”. If you have reached the level of loving “all” people good for you but don’t judge others as to who gets saved or not there is only one Judge of the universe who knows the heart of all men. Ben
  • Larry Wayne Jones on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationTim, The one that stands before God and points to what he or she has done in their life to deserve salvation is condemned by their words. In other words what they are trusting in (their works no matter what they are) determines their eternal destiny. "Lord, Lord, look at what I have done, or not done!" Whether it is prophesying or lifting a finger to help someone does not determine one's eternal destiny! Believing so is the sure way to condemnation. That one is already condemned because of not believing that the shedding of the perfect blood of the Lord Jesus Christ is the only works that can purchase salvation for anyone. Read again what Jesus said in Luke 18 regarding the "self-righteous" pharisee and the "sinful breast-beating publican." Do you really want to spend eternity with others who have bragging rights? Ephesians 2: 8 For by grace are ye SAVED through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the GIFT of God: 9 NOT of WORKS, lest any man should BOAST. Romans 3:27 Where [is] BOASTING then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. You see, God has arranged man's salvation so that there is only One that is righteous by his works. His name is Jesus! He and he alone is the spotless lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. Not you, not me...and not the countless number of souls praising the lamb in Revelation chapter 5. They are all (everyone of them) praising him because they are so grateful knowing that they are unworthy of God's kingdom; yet they are there, in it, wearing white robes that have been washed...not by their feeble self-righteous deeds...but by the blood of the precious lamb that takes away the sins of the world!!! Ephesians 2: 10 For we are HIS workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. According to the word of God, Christianity is not a merit system or anything of the kind... Titus 3:5 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Tim, other posts that I've made were not posted which leads me to believe that you will not allow the words of God that I've cited this time be posted for your 30,000 followers to consider. My advice to you and yours: Let go and let Christ be your Savior!
  • Tim McHyde on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationJohn, there is no "simpler" not "very long" article to explain a cryptic passage like this to its deceived audience (Mt 24:5). Your answer does not work because God created us to be whoever we wish, not what he decides. That's the richness and beauty of this gift of life with free will: no pressure or manipulation to be anything but our own creation EXCEPT we must not hurt others but love them for eternal life (Mt 19:16,19). Jesus said he does not know those who call him Lord but don't do what he says (Lk 6:46=Lk 13:24,25,27).
  • John on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationA very long article. I see a simpler reason for the "I never knew you" statement. The truest test in this life is to be what God created us to be. Most people spend their whole lives trying to be or appear to be something they are not. One of the hardest things in life is to Just Be You. We are told that we were known before the foundations of the earth. Then we hear a statement like this "I never knew you". Because you are not what you were created to be. You have rejected God whether by not following his law or not allowing him to work through you "in love." Whatever the case may be you are not someone he "knows." You are not who he created. So who you are NOW he never knew.
  • Jody Finne on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationTim...bravo for your concise review & biblical insights on Yeshua’s true plan of salvation. Today, many older Christians like myself are appalled & sickened at the “Cheap Grace”, prosperity messages, easy 1-2-3 steps of Salvation. Christian churches today resemble a rock concert with light shows, come as you are street clothing, coffee bars, and little reverence, or fear of God! Television has watered down the Gospel along with elimination of Wednesday & Sunday night church services. In 2018, few Christian churches have altars or “altar calls” - simply allowing congregants to sit quietly in their seats for prayer & worship . Yeshua also warns us in Matthew 10:33: “Whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my father in heaven.” Saint Paul also cautions believers in Philippians 2:12 - to work out salvation daily and run the good race! One personal observation - Tim... you seem to have a post 1990’s, negative viewpoint of Christianity which is about the same time many churches gave up the hard teachings to comply with gaining federal 501C3 non-profit, tax status. Trying to raise money for building funds rarely coincides with end times prophecy warnings - not too many in the flock will want to contribute financially if the end is about to occur. Very few churches in America today give sermons on eschatology which comprises 33% of the Bible. My hope is at least 50% of true believers will be raptured as the bride of Yeshua and avoid tribulation. Not all are called to wrath! What kind of bridegroom would allow his bride (beloved church) to endure 7 years of torment & abuse (great tribulation) to prove her true devotion and worthiness? However, before Yeshua went to the Cross mankind was doomed with only a few found worthy of redemption in two major genocides. (Noah & Lot’s family) during the Great Flood and destruction of S&G. Let’s hope Yeshua stands in the gap for the majority of us sinners. Yeshua also has a sense of humor. He knew that some of the people he healed would have a difficult keeping quiet, curbing their enthusiasm about the miracles he performed on them. It seems Yeshua was using reverse psychology knowing some recipients would do the opposite of what he verbally instructed them. Also remember that a true follower of Yeshua once baptized is sealed and receives the Holy Spirit, Comforter who works on our hearts daily if we maintain faith, devotion, and commitment to God & his son Yeshua. Daily prayer, demonstrating the Golden Rule and following God’s Will are extremely important!
  • mikhael on Dream: “Fountain of Youth” Healings Comingvery interesting, Lately ive been practicing fasting....5 days was my first. day 1 was ok day 2 my guts started to rumble day 3 i thought i was going to die day 4 no hunger and very clear thoughts,energy and concentration day 5 i wanted to do another 5 days but I decided to break my fast in order to eat with my son and daughter who i hadn't seen for a while...I was still exercising during this time. there is plenty of evidence of the ketogenic diet helping people get healthy and of sugar and carbs which slows you down and makes you addictive. I would imagine the 40 years of manna would do us well in these times. I am now on one meal a day 5-7pm 5%carb 25%protien and 70% fat...and feeling really active and alert (im 60 years old) I know that if things went crazy I could go without food (but not filtered water) for a long time. I carry my beat bible with me at all times in a small handbag just in case ...
  • Joyce Maloy on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI really enjoyed this article! I come from an Evangelical/ Pentecostal background, but I cannot call myself one. I prefer to call myself a follower of Jesus Christ and not adhere to ANY label. I, like you, Have recently studied more and more the teachings of Christ directly ( the gospels and the Sermon on the mount). I also see a disconnect from what brings salvation and what is taught in the churches that brings salvation. I have also been looking into Orthodoxy recently because much of what is in our evangelical churches today seems more shallow and like entertainment today. I also love the reverence to the things of the Lord that Orthodoxy has. I also like writings of the pre constantine early church fathers. Anyway, If I try to say anything about works to my family they look at me like have a third eye or something.
  • Elizabeth Becker on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI found this study eye opening and pretty on point with what loving others looks like. https://www.barna.com/research/christians-more-like-jesus-or-pharisees/
  • Mike Anderson on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationYour thoughts on lawlessness remind me of Tricia Tillin Booth’s article, “What IS the ‘lawlessness’ of the Last Days?” I’ve really appreciated her articles over the years. I thought I would share an illustration that came up in conversation a week ago. While organizing old files for backups, I came across dozens of videos of a likable “power” evangelist. He has a direct, counter-cultural style, and was commanding ailments of all sorts to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. He healed so many people that doors opened for him to minister all over the world, and to some very influential people. For most of a year I couldn’t clearly discern what was going on, whether or not this was an exciting move of God, so I watched more videos for clues. And the clues came in the form of answers to questions such as: “Who approves of him?” “Do people listen to him because of his preaching alone, or because they hope to gain something?” and “What did he do to receive power?” That last question can be answered in several ways, but consider that according his testimony, he prayed that others be healed between 900 and 1000 times before they were regularly healed. “What faith and perseverance!” you might say. But wait a minute—faith in what, exactly? Faith in healing in Jesus’ name, and faith as mental certainty, but not exactly trust in Jesus and the Father. Why would you have to convince a good God to grant you a good gift? “Abide in me, and I in you,” Jesus says, not “Ask me until I relent” or “Ask me until I have a legal right to overcome Satan.” From what I can tell, he asked that his will be done, not God’s, and when the power for mighty works came, no one was the wiser. As for the source of the power (and I think there is power), does it really matter whether it’s from God or Satan? God sends them a strong delusion for the loving purpose of rescuing the faithful: those who see and value nothing as much as the love of God. As for me, I would not want to stand with that triumphant crowd when rewards are given.
  • (Name hidden due to fear of Christians) on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationTim, this article has had more impact on me than I have ever felt or read. I have lost track of how long I have been following your writings. I think about 10 years plus. I wasn't understanding what I needed to do. I read the whole bible last year on my 5th attempt and continue to reread it. After reading the bible, I was feeling like I wasn't good enough to make it to the kingdom of the Lord. I was getting depressed and thinking I was going to be left behind. I had so much to be regretful for, not the best life style and a lot of mistakes. Thank you so much for putting in a format that I now understand and can put in to practice. My ongoing education has enlightened me and I now see how many don't really get it. That comfort zone most live in is off base for sure. My own church congregation and pastor appear to miss the point. Keep up the good work!
  • Christina Gibson on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationThank you Tim for this thorough teaching. God bless you and your family!
  • Mark Douglas on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI too have for over 30 years realized the eternal importance of studying ALL of God Word, daily. It says too many times that if we will seek Him with ALL our heart we will find Him. I am still seeking because to know Him is my life’s mission. Doing unto others as I would have them to do unto me is what I feel like is what Jesus would do and expect us to do as followers of Him, and my #1 goal each day is to do so. Great message, great truth. And yes, doing unto others does fulfill ALL the law and the prophets, nothing else does. Just so you know, I too have no fear of what is to come.
  • Matthew on Jesus: “Depart From Me, I NEVER Knew You!” or Missing The 3rd Part To SalvationI think if you really believe in and Love Jesus, loving others will come naturally, from the Holy Spirit. If it's constant hard work or it never happens, it's a sign you're not Saved.
  • Julian sulzbach on Podcast: Facing (and Fixing) Your Unrighteousness With The End ApproachingTim would not Islam be the great persecutor of Christians in the great tribulation is the false Messiah a Muslim? How has this religion rapidly grown in the world? as such a great religion would not have a final role in the prophecies, since they hate Christians so much?
