Share 0 Tweet Chuck on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsI am very inclined to believe you sir. But Rash Hashana is technically on the same day as the REAL Holy Day. Does that change anything? I mean even though I'm inclined not to fall for it, so much adds up. I am a little worried. The Bible does allude if I'm not mistaken, that Jesus would return on a Feast of Trumpets. Is it possible that we are wrong, and the church or Gentiles will be raptured out of here, and the Jews who need to learn that Jesus is the Savior go through the tribulation? I mean I don't know...? I have interpreted Rev.12 as Israel being the woman, Jesus being the Child, Herod being the physical dragons puppet used to try to devour or kill the children, the 1260 days being the time Mary and Joseph along with Christ stayed in Egypt, and Jesus was caught up. The church is always described as a woman so I don't think now they would change that into a "ManChild", and the term "Rod of Iron" is used I believe like Ike three times, all which speak of Jesus so don't see why that would be change now either....but man they sure have some what appears to be convincing arguments. What we do know is that this sign IS happening, what do you believe it means? Plus I personally do see why Jupiter HAS to be involved and not just a coincidence? Man....I know I'm all over the place but help me out. Plus doesn't Paul say we meet Jesus in the air, while Mount Zion He touches the mountain? Are these two different events? Lastly as for this pre-rapture, I never believed it, still don't I guess, but this morning while watching a William Lane Craig video on the Rapture, one woman who was pre Rapture brought up the point that when Jesus was Resurrected, man of the saints were as well in almost a pre Rapture like event? Any comments?Tim McHyde on The Millennium: Ten Surprising Changes Jesus Brings (or Grass-Eating Cats)Marantha, the Greek for Rev 22:15 is probably not reflecting the original Hebrew clearly (that the church fathers attest Revelation was received in) but the previous verse removes all doubt those dogs outside are D-E-A-D dead: Rev 22:14 - "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and [ = ] may enter the city by the gates." If you're not in the city you don't have eternal life from the tree of life and are dead (or will die soon).Maranatha on The Millennium: Ten Surprising Changes Jesus Brings (or Grass-Eating Cats)Hi, just happened to find you while googling. It does seem that wicked people will still be here when Jesus rules for 1000 years: Rev 22:15 "for without are dogs and sorcerers (druggies?), and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie (politicians?)Tim McHyde on The Parable of the Ten Virgins RevisitedCarl, see my debunking of Sept 23 here.BWG on Most Bizarre Speaking Invitation Experience Ever! (In Cyprus) + Lessons LearnedLife lesson learned! I have thoroughly enjoyed the Support Team content of your site Tim. It is so nice to hear your wife Katrina's input as well. Having a wife who is your best friend makes up for many deficiencies in life. That is one other thing we both share. I especially enjoyed this (timely for me) "Cypus podcast" about your unusal and bizarre speaking engagement in Cyprus. What an awkward time that must have been - being there on a supporter's dime must have compounded that awkwardness. I find it interesting how people can share a common goal but how the motivation behind that goal can be vastly different. I have no doubt that Yehovah was building you both up while (your) people were trying to tear you down. I just went through a similar type of thing this past month. Despite the amount of time effort, support, compassion and $ (she knew I didn't have) I poured into this widow, her very last harrassing communication was "I hate you more than I have ever hated anyone in my entire life". (I began to see that she had other motives so I cut off all communications.) I realized she was tourmented and perhaps didn't realize how hurtful she was being and though troubling, I felt no anger towards her. Though I stopped praying for her once the harrasment started, it was yours and Katrina's comment on this podcast that reminded and encouraged me to do exactly what Yeshua said to do - "love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you." Thank you for that encouragement! Blessings to you both! BWGCarl James Siddall on The Parable of the Ten Virgins RevisitedI've been reading and studying the so-called Day of the Rapture, is supposedly on September 23, which is in two days. What are your thoughts of this Star-alignment in regards to this Highly Important time and is it Truly the Day of The Rapture???? Ageliki Boes on Why I’m Convinced The End Begins in 2026—And What You Can Do About ItDear Tim, Thank you for the information. I am not sure how happy I am about it. I guess I was always hoping that it wasn't going to happen in my lifetime. There is no hope of that, now. 😞Sam Miller on Sam Miller’s Testimony – How Jesus’ Real Gospel (of the Kingdom) Changed His LifeThanks Rob. It is truly life changing stuff that I have found thanks to Tim and Katrina - evidenced every single day - more and more. Learning and being convinced that God is good is the first step. Being thankful for His goodness constantly, every moment, is the key to prolonged peace! God Bless!ko5 on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsIndeed. What will all you false prophets say when all the dates that you've predicted fall and pass by? How many people will you deceive until your own fears subside? Do you not know that you will be held responsible for this? What did the Christ say? How can you forget what he said? And so, the words of Jesus, who is the Christ, are justified all the more because of the lies you continue to proselytize. Those of you who are the modern day Sadducees and Pharisees will be subject to answer for it. Certainly your spirits may be justified by faith, but your souls are still subject to judgment. What good is it to read the word of God and believe it without doing its work? Did you not read that faith without works is dead. Fear the judge and quiet yourselves. Indeed John's words are also justified: "Brood of vipers, who warned you of the wrath to come?" (And the when is never answered for good reason). You lead the flock astray with these deceits. You will answer for it. And what answer will you give the Christ when you see Him in judgment? Do not think that because you are a believer you can sin and lie at will.Tim McHyde on 4 Plain Proofs America is Babylon + 6 Objections AnsweredChuck, glad you liked the article. However I am not setting a single date nor making predictions. Supporters ask me all the time my opinion on what year I think it will be? 2026 is my answer; simply my personal conviction, no prediction. But it can be later. I share it for those who are finally learning to do what Jesus said from my supporter teachings and want the extra urgency of knowing based on the one scriptural end time sign of Mt 24:14. I'm not explaining my date in a free video or article with people like you who don't understand "no man knows the day or hour" and who will only judge or get scared.Chuck Kenny on 4 Plain Proofs America is Babylon + 6 Objections AnsweredI'm really enjoying the read. I see in this country to be great again but with no definition on what great is. A corrupt government, 62% of the world porn, gay marriage, and on and on. Then you try and predict a date. A place where it clearly states in the Bible that you don't go to. No one knows. Another ego with end time date predictions. How sad. All you can do is be wrong. Because if you are right it doesn't matter. Don't demean your teaching with silly predictions.Rob Foster on Sam Miller’s Testimony – How Jesus’ Real Gospel (of the Kingdom) Changed His LifeThanks Sam for your very revealing and open story. It is all very raw and honest but the part I've quoted below really hit home with me ... It obviously takes strength and you've found the true source of that strength in Yeshua. "It means swallowing your pride often. It means letting people walk on you a bit without retaliation. It means praying for people that you once wouldn't hold a car door open for. (I've even been praying WITH people lately, something I have never done. Like my neighbor who suffers from alcoholism and my brothers girlfriend who has a form of OCD). It means giving money to people who are in more need than you, even if you don't have a lot left over yourself. But more than anything it means recognizing that YHVH has already loved you when you didn't deserve it and will bless you for your obedience.Rob Foster on So You Figured Out Christianity Deceived You—Now What?Two quotes from your article, with my *emphasis* ... "And most of all, I finally realized something that I never did in decades of church: that it's all about *how you think about and treat other people*. I'm way better at that these days, too—now that I focus on that instead of meetings, rituals, and special days and holidays." So true. This has to be one of my biggest challenges, especially the "think" part of it. I used to believe that it was okay to "think" something so long as you don't say it. So much has changed since those days. Thinking good thoughts about everyone and everything is such a big challenge. Phil 4:8 sums it up well for me Phil 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. It helped me to hang this verse on the previous two verses. Phil4:6-7 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 2nd quote from article "One of the key important lessons of my life for being able to love people better and be in greater peace with them was to *let go of my innate desires to*: teach people; correct people; save people from error or from "hell"; make sure people know what I know, or that I already know X; share with people the truth I'm excited about and assume they should be, too; be understood correctly by people (a biggie!)" I once thought that it was my mission in life to correct everyone around me who had somehow developed an "inferior" understanding of this or that, including the Christianity cult that I was a part of and, believe it or not, I even spent a lot of time and energy defending some of the false and distorted teachings. Thanks Tim for reinforcing my decision to move away from a cult-like organisation and looking to live a more informed life seeking the truth about Yehovah.Rob Foster on Why I’m Convinced The End Begins in 2026—And What You Can Do About ItHi Tim and Katrina, This article has inspired me in several ways, none of which I'm currently at liberty to share. Suffice to say, I found the article to be exhilarating, exciting and energising. I'll have more to say in the coming months as things develop from here. Kind regards.janna on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsI think a lot of us realize that we haven't used the talents and means that God has given us to bring others to Christ and don't feel ready to go up yet...the other reason is fear that we haven't done enough to bring our family members to Christ and see them get born again.. We don't want them left behind so some of the excitement of meeting Jesus sadly gets pushed away...Keith S on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsNo man knows the day or time. We can know when it is close as we were given many signs to watch for. Clearly the time for Jesus' return is very close. Discussing to try to figure the exact date is meaningless. What matters is that we are prepared and busy doing God' work. There is no reason for any believer to be afraid, rather should be very excited for the fulfillment of God' Word to us.Sam on The Parable of the Ten Virgins RevisitedThank you, Tim! That explains my puzzle too, and I agree with you. Indeed, when Jesus comes back and judge, those receiving rewards are not those who believe, or those who preach or perform miracles. The only thing that count is the good works one have done, which as you've said, is loving your neighbours.Tim McHyde on The Rapture: Its Timing, True Purpose, and Surprising Minimum Age Cut-offdwb, yes I've heard that grammatical argument before on the meaning of apantasin as going out to meet a visiting dignitary. From what I've read, it fits my understanding of us rising to meet Jesus in Heaven (Rev 15), the dignitary. But Jesus' purpose for which we greet him is not coming to visit "us/in our city." It's to join him in heaven for the marriage supper of the Lamb (Rev 15) while the bowls fall on the earth (Rev 16). We meet him and come back with him after the supper and wrath is done (Rev 19). So there is no conflict with the technical definition of the Word apantasin = going out to meet a dignitary.dwb on The Rapture: Its Timing, True Purpose, and Surprising Minimum Age Cut-offHave you considered 1 Thessalonians 4:17 in context of the original audience as going out to meet the triumphant King Jesus and coming back to Earth (maybe a new one) with him to live? Notice in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 that the Jesus "brings" from Heaven those who have fallen asleep. It seems He would be bringing them to Earth, not just back to where they came from. C.f. Conclusion(s) in http://stonedcampbelldisciple.com/2011/03/10/paul-the-roman-imperial-cult-the-return-of-king-jesus-and-flying-away-in-1-thessalonians-4-17/Mike Harrison on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsWhen Sept 23 comes and passes with no rapture, Scottie Clarke will try to push the date back or say that Sept 23 just meant that now rapture can occur at any time. But they were already saying this prior to Sept 23, that the rapture can occur at any time. They've always been saying it. Sept 23 doesn't change anything. Scott Clarke cannot push the date forward. He was very clear in the Sign documentary that Sept 23 is the only date that can work and he checked 1000 years into the future from that to make sure. So he cannot push the date. When the rapture doesn't happen, he will be a false prophet.Skeptic on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsYou guys just want your suffering to be over, then just go ahead and kill yourselves, The Bible is just a book that told stories from back in the day, do not read much into it. Many rapture dates have come and gone, and this will be no exception. The Rapture will never happen. EVER.Billy on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsSo we will be okay on the 23rd im really scared about this i just want to know if its real or notJUST HULA BOB on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells Us5 stars the sky view has been replaced by stellariumTim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsAstrophysics, Stellarium is the software Scottie Clarke bases his claims off. Check the validity yourself: Stellarium video here at the 34:00 mark you would see Jupiter does in fact leave Virgo after a few months. No nine month pregnancy is depicted by Jupiter.Astrophysics on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsIn relation to your Problem#7 you have stated that Jupiter only stays in the "womb" of Virgo for a few months and leaves - actually that is INCORRECT. You may want to check the validity and indeed competency of your sources before you quote them as valid sources. If anybody would like to check this for themselves then download an app called Skyview - it plots all of the planets and major stars and constellations on any date in the past or future - actually Jupiter stays within Virgo (generally the mid section) for the duration and at no point leaves it! Just an observation as I do not like untruth presented as facts by either side of this debate.Zachary Miller on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsMy money is on the fact that there is NO Bible precedent of God whisking His followers away from trials and tribulations. Instead, the Bible provides us with a myriad examples of followers having to make 'choices' (some lead to safety---which require faith, and others do not). It makes no logical sense (at least to me) for this precedent to be altered only at the end...But if a consistent pattern of logic within the Bible is not enough for some then we should verify whether a post tribulation rapture (ie: at the end of Satan's wrath but prior to God's) is correct: Matthew 24:29-31.Tim McHyde on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodGlossie, Ps 135 only mentions God's past works and capabilities for the purposes of glorifying and praising him. It does not go into when or why he chooses to do them. For that you have to consult the rest of the Bible and understand from past precedents that he does not do judgment without sending word/warning by a prophet (Amos 3:7).Fanta Ayalew on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodWhat a superb reply, dear Tim. Yes, many "prophets" are confusing us, millions even billions of earthlings. We are unable to discern which is what. I personally was fooled by the so called Dec. 21, 2012. It passed as any day though millions people were worried so much. Nowadays, it is because of such foolish prophecies that people have become nonchallant of anything. If lie once or twice, you may be succefull But if lying becomes one's habit, then, s/he is never trusted even if s/he tells the truth. I do not know if you have this child story:- A shepherd used to fool the people of his village by crying the coming of wolves to eat his sheep. He fooled and laughed at them for two times. When the real wolves came and started to feast on the sheep, and when he shouted, no one came to help him believing that he was to fool them. I fear such scenario in the near future. I do not think people would believe the coming of Jesus Christ for the second time if we shout. or He Himself comes and proclaims the Kingdom of God on Earth. Everything seems to have gone astray nowadays, sorry for my blabbing guys. Am from Ethiopia, black, not as black as charcoal, of course, a kind of chocolate, 53, a teacher, impatiently waiting the coming of my Lord ....shan on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsIt's not going to happenBrendan Williams on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsHi. I'm feeling a bit anxious about what is going to be happening on September 23, 2017 with the fulfillment of the sign of Revelation 12. Can somebody tell me why?GLOSSIE GLORIA MAE TOWNER on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodWhat do u think about Psalms 135, where God talks about all the things He did. He said that He brings up the clouds from earth, mix lightening with rain, and that He draws forth the wind out of His treasures which is in Heaven? I can remember growing up as a little girl in Arkansas. We kids had to sit in total darkness, no lights on, couldn't speak a word. My Grandmother and mom saying "Be quiet while God is doing His work." and "Let the Lord do His work." We was raised to respect God in the 60's, but these new generation are not. God bless and keep up the good work.Sam Miller on Sam Miller’s Testimony – How Jesus’ Real Gospel (of the Kingdom) Changed His LifeThanks Marilynn. God bless!Not Posting on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsThe "Revelation 12 sign" is nothing more than the "manifest sons of god" heresy packaged up in astrology.Sam Miller on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsMy money is on Tim. See you on Sept 24th.Chris on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsLet's see who's interpretation is correct. According to Clarke, the rapture will happen this week before 9/23. If we are gone, interpretation is settled and he got it right and Tim didn't. If we are still here, Clarke could still be right at a future time or Tim is right. I don't have perfect knowledge of all truth and neither does Tim or Scott. Scripture says the Ruach will GUIDE us to all truth. It will not all be dumped in our lap. We have to research, study, and most importantly ask the Ruach for the truth because he is only one that knows for sure. I appreciate both Tim and Scotts ministries because I believe they have enough truth to take the time to study it worthwhileTim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsLen, thankfully none of that can happen without a warning from heaven which has not happened yet and cannot happen yet because Elijah has not appeared. A warning of that magnitude will be ignored without a powerful prophet presenting it.len on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells Ustoday is 9/16/17 bad news and very near on 09/23/17......Israel destroyed (festival day of judgement) on 09/30/17......US destruction begins (festival day of atonement) on 10/04/17 thru 10/11/17 Gods violates the sanctuary planet earth ( festival of booths) no later than mid Oct 2017 Jesus and the 144,000 quietly appear and rule over what is left. pretty tight schedule......but with Him anything is possible.marilyn samaniego on Torah Feasts & Holy Day Calendar 2017Sue, that doesn't mean a flat disc shaped earth.

They are not fit for the kingdom and will be rejected.Gert Bock on The Last Sign of the End: The Gospel of Jesus Returns!Hi Tim Paul wrote the gospel of grace,isn't? Can we say he was false or cheap?Just asking.Tim McHyde on The Last Sign of the End: The Gospel of Jesus Returns!Gert, the churches teach a counterfeit gospel of cheap grace.

Hence my article's statement of this method not being "foolproof." =)Jeff on The Parable of the Ten Virgins Revisited"Let the Bible interpret the Bible"... Tim, It doesnt mean to draw any sort of connection as you'd like between verses. It is used to refer to when verses in the Bible explicitly give an interpretation of other verses, then that is the proper interpretation! Examples would be Jesus interpreting his own parables, Hebrews interpreting various OT verses, ...Tim McHyde on The Last Sign of the End: The Gospel of Jesus Returns!Jean, yes it is a shame I have to reserve some content just for supporters to motivate regular readers to give enough to their teacher when this ethic is already taught in the NT (Gal 6:6; 1Co 9:14). But I'm not complaining, just getting wiser on how to work with people. Interestingly, the only ones complaining about pay-walled articles are people who have read things for years without sending any support... (Not talking about you.) You are blessed and one of the few if you can see how Christianity does not fulfill the vision of Jesus nor train others in his teaching by having them come and sit for an hour a week passively... Just keep reading his words over and over in your free Bible and you can find the things I'm teaching by God's leading, too, as you already seem to not be far from the Kingdom.Tim McHyde on The Parable of the Ten Virgins RevisitedJean, I know I am saved because I know my heart since I was a boy that I love God and today I know he just wants me to submit to his law of love in faith and love him and my neighbor as myself which I wholeheartedly agree with and know is best for all. So I don't doubt my salvation because of moments of weakness, failing, disobedience like you list because my heart is still the same as evidenced by feeling bad after and wanting to do better. Again, salvation is not about performance! But if you do become a supporter and read the article, you'll learn that Jesus taught that performance does factor in elsewhere: reward/glory level once you are in the kingdom.AnnEz on How We Escape the Great Tribulation: Faith, not a RaptureI myself believe that there will be a 2nd Greater Exodus and, even though I'm old, I'm hoping to be part of it! ♡Thanda on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodGod can let those who please him know when big events are to take place.Joshua on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodBeen a long time reader and the site has given me lots of comfort in the past. Gives me the whole perspective on everything,as well as insight I never thought about before. I like the recent update referring to the hurricanes not being the act of God. Many people because of Katia,Harvey,Irma,Jose have jumped on the Nibiru/Sept 23rd end of the world type of talk,now mixed with the FEMA Camp Martial Law talk. Its very disheartening to see a lot of other christians on youtube and social media going this route. Glad to see you keep a straight forward logic based view on everything thats transpiringTahir on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodHi Mel I would like to know what prophetic books you wrote and came true.Thanks and Godbless.Tahir.Jean on The Last Sign of the End: The Gospel of Jesus Returns!Hi What a shame that one has to be a memebr of your support team to read the full aticle. It sounds very interesting. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to be part of the support team or give donations or anything, nor yet buy books. However, from some of the comments posted, I can glean a little of what perhaps the article is about. I'd always felt it was very important not to simply 'stay in church'. Whenever I was there, I kep thinking, what about all those people 'out there'. I wanted to be instrumental in bringing them to Christ, but more than merely that. I didn't want this in order to make them a member of a church institution but rather that they would come to a full knowledge of God and His Kingdom. I can't wait until the 'the whole earth is filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea'.Jean on The Parable of the Ten Virgins RevisitedThank you for that explanation of this parable...I've always been confused by it. You have made it a lot clearer. However, I now have a question regarding your reply to Elke about salvation. How can one tell whether one has 'gone byond the pale' so to speak re one's salvation...everyone (or at least most people I should think), have wobbly moments (or months or years) in their faith, especially when going through periods of what is variously known as 'the dark night of the soul', or 'desert times', when one can seriously feel that one may have somehow ignored or disobeyed God or direspected Him or thinks perhaps that one has lost one's way, or many other scenarios. And in those times, one really does have to 'walk by faith' , not sight or at least the sensing/sensation of the Holy Spirit, and maybe God not speaking to one in such plain ways. One can think, have I so completely strayed from the path that I am irrecoverable, or is it just that God is teaching me new and deeper ways of relating to Him.Tim McHyde on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)Amanda, Jesus created the fear first by saying he will tell many believers, "depart from me I never knew you" That's a scary warning in love because he does not want us to miss the rapture/salvation. And yes, it's not "once saved always saved." That's a lie from religion. Read and trust only Jesus' words where he says he can "blot your name from the book of life" (Rev 3:5) or anyone "putting their hand to the plow and looking back is not fit for the kingdom of God" (Lk 9:62). Reread the article again and notice that I caution staying out of works based/perfection based/performance based mentality and focus on the faith in Jesus as lord who will save you for making him that which leads to you doing his law, not your own. It's about that faith choice, not about the performance that follows, got it?Amanda on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)So, you basically don't believe in "once saved, always saved?" This article creates a lot of fear... how can we know we are doing enough? This feels like more "works" based salvation.Tim McHyde on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)Cloudbound, yes, salvation is free by faith alone, agreed, but faith in what, exactly, saves? Ahh, I bet you never asked yourself that and just accepted what Christianity says there instead of understanding Jesus' answer on this (like we all have been guilty of). Repentance starts with faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior. If you really believe he is Lord who will save you, then you make Jesus Lord by firing yourself from that role you currently have like all humans do. You will learn and practice the law of the new Lord, what he said to do, the law of Christ (Gal 6:2). This is the outcome of saving faith. ("Stop sinning" are your words, not a phrase I used to describe this as it's not very accurate or realistic or helpful of a focus.) The thief on the cross had that faith and you missed that he did act on it in repentance even for the short time he had left. He defended Christ (Lk 23:41) when the other thief was taunting him (Lk 23:39). That took guts and faith. His changed actions proved his faith in his new Lord! He did not justify the old Lord, himself, like the other thief seemed to. Faith in a savior who saves you without you repenting (like you expressed) is not saving faith. It's belief in a lie and it results in the disappointment of hearing the words, "I never knew you. Depart from me you worker of lawlessness." (Mt 7:23). If you don't care about following the law of Christ, you are lawless and not saved by faith in your Savior because you don't truly believe he is Lord, now do you? Why do you call him Lord and say it's not important to change your actions to do what he says (Lk 6:46)? Because you don't believe, at least not by the biblical usage of "belief in Christ" (John 3:16). Why must it be this way? God's not letting people into the Kingdom for eternal life who have not made Jesus Lord and his law their law. It would result in chaos and conflict. However, with everyone on the same page of doing the law of love and submitting to the authority of Christ, there will be peace and harmony. That's the real faith/belief in Jesus the NT talks about. Therefore, people who only admire Jesus as Savior are not yet "fit for the Kingdom" until they make Jesus Lord, which is why Jesus will shock them with rejection.Cloudbound on Why Most Christians Won’t Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)Salvation is and always will be,faith plus NOTHING . Jesus paid it all,all to him I owe.Repentance is NOT turning from sin, but a change of mind/heart towards God. No human who ever lived,can stop sinning,even a Christian.Refer to Paul's struggle with sin in his life, the greatest of all the apostles. If all you have written is true, please explain the thief on the cross, who had no time to stop sinning, turning his life around e.t.c, he merely BELIEVED,and that day he was saved. The cross is a lesson for all, two thieves, one believed, one did not, its that simple. Don,t make things complicated, be like a child, the Gospel is that simple. The fruit will follow,because he has changed you by his spirit,once you believe,who walk in the spirit by his power. Thank you Jesus for this simple, and wonderful free gift that passes all human understanding,your Amazing grace.Tim McHyde on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodRobert, do you have the book?Robert Rich on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodTim I just listen to Jonathan Cahn describe his new book, Paradigm. Can you give a book report on it please.Zachary Miller on Why I’m Convinced The End Begins in 2026—And What You Can Do About ItI have no issue with helping anyone who needs the assistance (as best as I can!).Subin on The Two Witnesses – Would You Want This Job?Oh, I see. Thank you for that link. May God bless you.Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Will Tell Christians, “Depart From Me, I Never Knew You!”Della, If people are unloving or abusive towards you, the wise thing to do is to cut them off or set up other boundaries. God's law is love, which does not mean you are friends with or in contact with everyone no matter how they treat you. Until it was his time, whenever the Jews were trying to kill him, Jesus went away: http://biblehub.com/luke/4-29.htm Do the same in love and don't feel guilty.Della on Why Jesus Will Tell Christians, “Depart From Me, I Never Knew You!”I understand about love and forgiveness. But how do you deal with people who treat you bad no matter how hard you try to have a relationship with them. I went through that with my inlaws so now i just keep to myself and don't go to their family gathering because they dont even talk to me when i talk to them and sit there feeling stupid cause my husband leaves me while he hangs out with his brother so i dont go anymore. And i also had a issue with my sister and some lady doing witchcraft on people who my sister felt mad her mad she told me the stuff the had done to people. Then she tried to do it to me. I don't communicate with her anymore it not that i hate her but i dont trust her to be around me and my family. But i do not want to let God down by not wanting to deal with her and her children that where doing witchcraft. And she said i was lying on her and i never did she told me the stuff they where doing. I feel like i am gonna go to hell cause i cant deal with her.Zachary Miller on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsThe question I always like to ask myself is "What if everyone else is wrong?" There are, by the way, countless examples where human heard mentality (decisions) has been wrong....The question we should be asking isn't "what are one's credentials (Is there a "I know the truth" credential???) but "Do we know enough about the Bible to discern whether someone knows what they're talking about OR not." Most people simply will not ask this question because it requires them to place the responsibility of understanding on themselves rather than on someone else (ie: through their credentials, etc..)...The very real truth is that we are in fact responsible for figuring the truth out on our own---Even though many on the Internet seem to link salvation with understanding Bible prophecy (they aren't linked from what I can see) it still will come down to understanding these concepts on your own...Once you do understand it you'll see right through the many nonsensical claims on the Internet like the September 9th claim (Jupiter will be impacted by Nibiru) or the September 23rd claim (the supposed rapture of the saints) or the various past moon tetrad claims (non of which have materialized). As a matter of fact look at all the past prophetic claims that have been made by "credentialed" individuals--they've all been wrong. Frankly, what I see is cherry picking (by well intentioned people) who don't understand as much about the Bible as they would like....But given the difficulty in knowing this stuff clearly God has a plan for that as well (as per an actual prophet...Tim has an article on this as well!)---The message will be loud and clear for everyone (no matter your knowledge level of the Bible). There is no need to worry about hearing the truth when the time is right.Jim Stafford on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsPertaining to problem #3 and the 12 stars already in Leo. There's actually millions of stars in Leo as well as a few galaxies. But I'm thinking what Scottie Clarke was talking about are the 9 major stars in Leo's Constellation. http://www.astronomytrek.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/leo_constellation_map.jpg These would be 1. Ras Elased Australis, 2. Ras Elased Borealis, 3. Adhafera, 4. Algeiba, 5. ETA Leo, 6. Regulus, 7. Zosma, 8. Chertan & 9. Denebola. You add 3 traveling stars, which are not stars at all but really planets and that would make the 12 stars. Of course, I'm assuming this is what Scottie Clarke was referring to. Now I've seen these wonders in the heavens like the Hale-Bopp comet. I sat out in my front yard and watched Hale-Bopp for several nights. Absolutely amazing and beautiful. Then the 4 blood moons which one of them I watched for 3 hours driving from Buttonwillow Ca. to Santa Nella Ca. while traveling on Interstate 5, and It was absolutely spectacular. Now how strange & coincidental that the last solar eclipse started in Oregon which was the 33rd state in our republic and exited on the 33rd parallel. Then add in that Christ died for our sins when he was 33. Nope!! I'm not expecting the rapture, WWIII, planet X to swoop by, not even the return of Jesus Christ to take place on 23 Sept 2017. I'm expecting absolutely nothing to happen, just like it did over 2000 years ago when my Lord, King, and Savior Jesus Christ was born.Tim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsSue, if you worry about my credentials or that I'm only a minority viewpoint and there is somehow safety in trusting in what "everyone else" is saying, then I'm afraid my answers won't help you. You'll just have to wait until Sep 24th and come back and ask instead, "How did you know it was false when so many believed it?"Jim Stafford on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsHere's a great star chart program that you can down load for free. You can go to any time BC or AD and watch the movement of the stars. If you look close enough you may even find the star of Bethlehem. http://www.stellarium.orgTim McHyde on The Two Witnesses – Would You Want This Job?Subin, Enoch and Elijah did die just as Scripture says: "appointed to men to die" (Heb 9:27). Of course, some will miss that appointment with death because of the rapture.Sue on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsWhat are your credentials? What if you are wrong and everyone else is right?joy marley on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodThanks for your reply, God BlessSubin on The Two Witnesses – Would You Want This Job?Sir, Why is is not possible that the Witnesses are the actual Enoch and Elijah? After all, both of them did not "die" in the usual way. In fact, they are not said to have died. So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him (Genesis 5:23,24). Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven (2 Kings 2:11). Why isn't it possible that they are sent to die in the usual way this time along with their mission? P.S. Your website is awesome and I am learning a lot.Tim McHyde on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodJoy, I appreciate you and your patronage, too (and 100% agreement is not needed for that, lol). There is a difference between someone working prophetically like we have all seen and a biblical prophet with a message from God to leaders. Only true prophets do signs and wonders to certify their message and they also speak in God's personal name, Yehovah. Prophetic Christians don't adhere to that so when they announce signs or speak for God, I know to ignore it.Brandon on Understanding the Nephilim and their Role in Bible Prophecyvery interesting article I've seen several YouTube videos on Giants but never new they were offspring from woman and fallen angels and didn't know they were in the Bible at all makes me think if all this was around the dinasour ageJoy on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodHi Tim, Firstly I've been following your ministry some time now and recently bought your book. Let me just say that I really appreciate you and your wife's ministry it's literally been a breath of fresh air for me and a relief. Whilst I don't agree with everything I observe and I consider you a good balancer if that makes sense. Anyway I wanted to ask you do you believe there will only be one final prophet to come or are their still true prophets at work beforehand? If so have you ever come across someone with a prophetic ministry? Thanks,JoyRussell G. Hopkins on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodTim: Along the lines that Mel Strickland was commenting on above, first I don't believe Mel is correct in stating "there are more prophets in America, more of them than anyone knows." I think there are just a few actual prophets sent by God in our day. For example, I believe Herbert W. Armstrong was sent by God to revive God's Word, and make plain the truth of God's biblical teachings for our modern world. I do agree with Mel on his point about, "Satan also has fake prophets in America and people seem to listen to them." This point is totally in line with the fact that Satan is the great deceiver and kidnapper of humanity. This explains why so many "so called Christians" claim to be prophets today, and have messages from God, when in fact they are unknowingly agents of Satan! Just for the record Tim, I truly believe most of your readers, and the vast majority of the thousands/millions of people's lives that you have touched, would agree that you have truly been sent by God to make clear God's Word, and to give the world advance knowledge of God's "Escape Plan" for His believers and followers! Thank you & God bless your work! Russell G. HopkinsObiajulu Echedom on Identifying the Antichrist: 8 Myths Not To Fall ForYet another eye opening article. Would love to support your ministry but for mode of payment. Again your book is not in Nigeria.Obiajulu Echedom on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodThanks Tim for this reassuring article. Thanks. Obiajulu Echedom.Jan on Identifying the Antichrist: 8 Myths Not To Fall ForFinally, a truthful Christian who put a plug on the "Muslim Antichrist" myth. What is the utmost unbreakable foundation in Islam is the belief in the One God of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and all of the other prophets, no matter how much people try to ignore or speak against it; Uncontended, Infinte and the Sustainer of all things is The Lord. If any man claims to be God or tries to raise himself to or above God, he has blasphemed the worst form of blasphemy and will be rejected by Muslims of any literacy level. Though the myths are rampant against Islam, God ultimately remains Glorious and Victorious in the end, and no man or creature can stop God's Judgement. On a second note, what's troubling is that many Christians are staunch believers in the deity of Christ, which Muslims reject. Because of the mainstream Christian belief in a man who came as God, many Christians might unfortunately fall victim into believing that the AntiChrist (or, as the article describes through the Bible, the man of lawlessness) is in fact God (God in the flesh). Muslim believers love Christ unconditionally, he is a very important prophet in Islam, and Muslims neither reject him nor The Father (God Almighty). Just think about it.Grace on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsGalatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and i No longer live, but Christ lives in me.

To Jesus be All Glory and Honor and Power and Praise Forever and ever AmenSusieQ on True Prophet vs False Prophet: How to Tell When Elijah Comes?The world is on fire ...Alena on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodI'm with you, Tim. I've grown very weary of "prophets" who speak contrary to God's will. I heard one on youtube speaking that the solar eclipse was a warning of God's judgment. Then he spoke that there will be two hurricanes (Harvey/Irma) and then 3 earthquakes in the US following the hurricanes, as a judgment from God. They said this will completely destroy the US economy and is a judgment for Pres Obama's ungodly decisions. If that were going to happen, wouldn't it happen in Pres Obama's administration? Now that we have a Christian professing President, who denounces same sex marriage and abortion, doesn't that bring greater spiritual alignment to our nation? "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." May God remove the false prophets in the body of Christ who bring confusion to God's people. Thank you, Tim, for always setting the record straight. You are my go to man.Terry on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsA great tribulation or persecution has already happened with the early church. The early church was heavily persecuted by Roman pagans for a long time. Who knows how many were put to deathJeff Alan Vasconcellos on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodThank you Tim.

I prayer for all the people in the area of the hurricanes path.Amen!jerry kimble on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodThanks for the articles, Tim. They are always enlightening.Michelle Gerson on Why That Disaster Wasn’t A Judgment Or Warning From GodTim, if this is God's warning to the nations, why is Germany not warned like other nations. We know how Germany has done harm to God's people, the Jews, and continue with their welcoming of the Jews's enemies, muslims immigrants, mostly men (where are the women and children), immigrants who raped the young german girls by the hundreds? If this was God's warning to nations, would He not be fairer in distributing His warning to those who are specifically promiscuous, worshipping other gods, homosexuals, pornography, etc... This seems right with Florida, but other smaller islands, as you say, are also hit, yet, the warning is to 'the nations', isn't it? Why are the corrupted governments, the Vatican, the tyrans of this world, warned? It seems only the poor, the destitute, those living in cardbox boxes for houses and the deprived in general, who suffer most.Anastasia on Why I’m Convinced The End Begins in 2026—And What You Can Do About ItGood day Tim all God's richest blessings to you. I found your article to be very informative and enlightening. I agree with what you are saying concerning God's kingdom not being preached in the churches. You are definitely giving hope to the hopeless. Ppl are too busy focusing on end time dates when they need to focus on spreading the gospel of god to other nations. So don't judge Mr Tim, leave the judging to God. Love all the way from Trinidad and TobagoZachary Miller on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)You may want to take a look at Tim's article on the "three" resurrections.

Please realize that we are living in the last days and accept JESUS CHRIST as your personal Lord and Savior who paid on the cross for our sins and came back to life on the 3rd day!!! We have to come to the cross as broken sinners. There's no forgiveness without JESUS! If you die in your sins you will go to hell. Please accept JESUS CHRIST now!!!Tim McHyde on The Mystery of the Antichrist’s 1000 Year Early AnnihilationZachary, great questions. Let me know if you find any solid answers =).Zachary Miller on The Mystery of the Antichrist’s 1000 Year Early AnnihilationI understand that a person who has an angel and human as parents would be classified as "nephilim". However, what about offspring of nephilim (a nephilim and 1 human parent)? Are these people nephilim too or are they fully "human"? If so, then what's the generational cutoff for being nephilim? Finally, since nephilim aren't people then the instructions of God (the ten commandments) don't apply in their case, correct?koop on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsOk, so Revelation 12 happens in 2 weeks? Whatever happened to Revelation 1 through 11? lol. Amazing. People, can you count? Revelation is chronological (if you have half a rabbit's brain).
