The 100 Latest Comments William Trinh on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”I look forward to your thoughts on this topic in the future. I hope it blesses you as much as it's blessing me. Tim McHyde on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Aly, yes, according to Jesus and Paul, the rapture comes "after the tribulation of those days" (Mt 24:29). Look at my rapture articles below for more on that. Knowing when the Tribulation begins is not the problem as "Elijah comes first" (Mark 9:12) and warn the world (Mal 4:5). Yes, the 144,000 are actual Israelites, only 24,000 of which could be technically called Jews. Here's my rapture articles: http://timmchyde.com/god-allow-bride-go-through-great-tribulation/ http://escapeallthesethings.com/rapture-secrets http://escapeallthesethings.com/rapture-requirements http://escapeallthesethings.com/audience-revelation-3-10 Greg Schultz on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Took me a couple times reading this to fully grasp it. Makes perfect sense once you see it broken down and explained. Thanks for doing this Tim and sharing so I can benefit too! Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”William, I have not studied the Didache, but I remember it was very similar to what the Sermon on the Mount says. Seems worthy of study. I'll keep it in mind, thanks. Aly on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?So, if I am understanding your article, you do not see a rapture of the church before the tribulation begins? It makes me wonder how we are to know that the tribulation has indeed begun. I was raised to believe in the rapture first, but to say I don't know everything is an understatement. Also, I have always believed that the 144,000 were actual Jews who would come to know Yeshua (Jesus) as the true Messiah. 12,000 from each tribe... thoughts??? I do appreciate what you say about the signs in the heavens. A person could make anything fit.... In 2012 the world was freaking out about the end of the Mayan calendar. You're a great writer, and I look forward to reading more of your articles Thanks Carrie on Six Wrong Ways to Face the End Times (& One Right)Thank you. I know I have to be strong in faith & not deny God regardless of the tests & pain we are put through. I was very scared & confused until I started reading your posts & I feel much better now. I have to follow his commandments to enter his kingdom not just believe in him. Chip Fitzpatrick on True Prophet vs False Prophet: How to Tell When Elijah Comes?Just last week I saw a illustration of the United States but the states weren't displayed just the word wormwood in the shape of our country the lower 48 states maybe ? This continent hasn't really tried to obey God more like obeying what man thinks is honorable and right, I'm not going to mention the guy who had stirred my spirit about things that have come upon our continent such as the Arch of Baal that was erected in NYC just another defiance and in my opinion has also brought judgement to us since 2001...just the wormwood has sparked my interest. Why America? Tim McHyde on When is the Great Tribulation Not Coming?Hi Jessica, thank you for reading. Leviticus 25:9 does not talk about the start of the Jubilee Year or change it. See "Q: What about Leviticus 25:9? " at this link. Jessica Finch on When is the Great Tribulation Not Coming?Love reading your articles and thought provoking commentary. One thing that has confused me is that although I know the year begins in the spring (Exodus 12:2), Leviticus 25:9 seems to indicate that the Jubilee year begins in the seventh month. What are your thoughts on this and is it related to the 6 1/2 years mentioned in your article? Tina Black on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Made it through part 1, AMEN!!!!!!! very exciting!!! Tim McHyde on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to IsraelAdeola, there are many problems people can cite for people of all walks and colors to go to Israel. If God's escape plan is to take us there (Joel 2:31-22), it's a lousy plan if it does not address all of them, yes? Consider the exodus and how he overcame every problem to get them out. It will be the same this time. Tim McHyde on Six Wrong Ways to Face the End Times (& One Right)Carrie, FEMA camps are an unconfirmed conspiracy theory (ever been to one or know anyone who has?). As I wrote in a previous article, even if they are real, when God commands us to flee he will make the way of escape. Remember Peter in prison and the angel sent to let him out to do what he was commanded to do, to preach the gospel of the kingdom. Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Remmie, prophecy is part of the Bible. We learn through discussion even arguing, iron sharpening iron. Spending all your time on the gospel and neglecting the rest of the Bible sounds a little unbalanced to me, but we each must do as we feel led and not judge others, yes? Johann Cronje on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to Israel"Is the State of Israel the Biblical Israel?" Tim, you say “Only the House of Judah (the Jews) is identifiable today and has partially returned.” I can agree with the word “partially” Many of us however know that the House of Israel (10 tribes) was scattered across the globe by God Himself. He has promised to gather them (as well as Judah) again in His own time! I therefore believe that all the outstanding blessings and prophecies owing to Israel definitely has to be shared by all the Israel nations related to the 10 tribes and cannot be merely claimed by a handful of Jews living in the State of Israel as a (single nation) pretending to be the whole of Judah. They are certainly not! Historically, only a portion of the original members of Judah that were taken captive into Babylon eventually returned to the land of Israel and called themselves Jews. The rest never returned and were also scattered and are living elsewhere in their present day lives. Those that have returned in 1948 are of mixed seeds. The return of the “JEWS” to the land in 1948, certainly does not confirm the fulfillment of Ezekiel 37, being the complete return of all of Israel. In other words, the current population of the state of Israel does not even represent the full house of Judah and neither could they represent Israel of old. Ezekiel 37 - 11 confirms that the reference to Israel consists of the whole of Israel - “Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.” It is therefore farfetched for the Jews born from many different seeds (other than that of Judah, Benjamin and Levi) to claim the identity of Judah or even to be recognized as representatives of the descendants of (true Israel/Jacob seed) of old. Romans 9:6-8King James Version (KJV) 6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: 7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham (through Ismael or Esau), are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, they which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. Isaiah 11:11-12 11. And it shall come to pass on that day, that the Lord will set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, that shall remain from Assyria, and from Egypt and from Pathros and from Kush and from Eklam and from Shinar and from Hamath and from the islands of the sea. 12. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations and will assemble the dispersed of Israel and gather together the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the Earth. The following facts are real and cannot be labelled as the “Israel vision or a false doctrine”. The Nation-state of Israel - Understanding Its True Biblical Identity https://realtruth.org/articles/110915-004.html Remmie on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)I do not understand why we Christians, reduce ourselves to arguing about these prophecies. The Bible says even the savior doesn't know the day, Only The Father does. HE will come when HE comes. What Does matter, is the Gospel. Share the Way, the Truth and the Life!! Carrie on Six Wrong Ways to Face the End Times (& One Right)Hello. Are you aware of the fema camps already being constructed? What do we do in that case if we can not flee? Adeola on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to IsraelHello Tim. Not much has been said about black Africa; are we going to take part in moving to Israel? How will the hatred for blacks not work against them in the feature?. William Trinh on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Tim, On a different but similar topic - what are your thoughts on the Didache? I came across it a couple of years ago and found it to be a fascinating document with an even more fascinating history. It seems that your conclusion on the Sermon on the Mount is summarized in the first few paragraphs of this ancient document that allegedly was in circulation among the believers of Acts 2. Did you ever do a blog on this? Katrina McHyde on Support Team Members Content OnlyHi William. I wanted to express my gratitude of your offer for hospitality if we ever make it to Hawaii. Who knows what will be in any our futures of course. I will say that I have seen that there have been times people have prayed for us to come, and God has sent us, so who knows :). Katrina McHyde on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaI really enjoyed reading your condensed version of your testimony, Jodie. It is so wonderful to interact with people who are diligently searching for understanding and also trying to find a way to live a life that pleases God. I heard a speaker recently share who compared all the knowledge and wisdom of God like a never ending orchard of different trees with tons of fruit that you could never eat all of. You could go around the garden and pick and eat anything you wanted and there would still be more and more. That really made a dramatic visual for me that still keeps coming back to my mind. Your journey for finding the answers to your questions in your post reminded me of that visual. I personally was born in to a fundamental church and although I do not attend that church any longer (and it does not even exist any longer), I have known that the God of The Bible, The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, was the Creator. I have searched for answers to various questions my whole life concerning spiritual matters, and I think it is healthy to do so. Hey, I met Tim at a Bible University where I was searching for answers. A few weeks ago, while I was in prayer, I just spontaneously asked God to help me understand very simply what He wanted. Sure, I had many answers, but I always find myself getting into so many details. I love details, but sometimes they muddy up the true point. I asked that understanding the most important things be so simple that I could share it with a 5 year old and they would understand. I felt moved by the idea that God said the simple would understand and the wise would not. Plus, I have felt that the deepest truths are usually in the most simple answers. I look at who Yeshua picked to learn from Him. It was the uneducated, and they knew more than the religious educated people of their day after just a short time of being around Yeshua. These past few weeks have definitely been interesting as God clarifies things for me. So far, I have just a few things that God has revealed to me that are the core, or the things that will lead you directly to Him and His way. The first one is the two greatest commandements- Love YHWH with all your heart, might, soul, everything you have, and love your neighbor as yourself (and your neighbor will most definitely be hard to love especially if you do not know who God has made you to be). The second thing I have learned are what seem to be maybe the three most basic things to understand God and Yeshua to have taught us to focus on: 1. Repentance 2. Forgiveness 3. Blessing (instead of cursing). One warning has been given to me so far as well to temper the basic stuff above. All of the above ideas have an anti-type, or a false type. There is something that looks and even may feel like you love God but you really do not. There is something that may look and feel like you love your neighbor as yourself but do not. There is false repentance, forgiveness, and blessing. And all of these false things leave most of us deceived and not knowing we are deceived. To help get out from under this deception, or false worship of God, I have so far been given one remedy. The remedy is to grab hold of how much God loves you and bought you, and proved it through sending His Son, who loved you so much that he willingly died for you (instead you you dying for disobedience), so that you could be so THANKFUL that all you wanted to do is show your gratitude by reciprocating with 'laying down your own life' through the simple things I mentioned above. With this one ingredient, a person can discern their own heart of what is false and what is real obedience and worship of the One True God. Actually, each time I share what I got so far, it gets simpler in the message. I think a 5 year old could understand this. Yes? May your journey of your own searching for answers become very clear and simple for you, and may those answers bring you even more peace than you have attained thus far! Tim McHyde on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to IsraelJoe, I'm not saying it, the Bible is: Gen 15:6, a cornerstone passage quoted by Paul repeatedly in the NT about salvation by faith in God's word. Paul also says in Romans 2:12-16 that Gentiles without any revelation at all (which includes revelation on Jesus) are saved by doing the right things and having a clear conscience. The Jews still need Christ's sinless blood regardless of how they feel. All I'm saying is you don't get the blood to cover you by knowing about it and accepting it which is not possible for most of human history. Think of all the people who believe in Jesus but don't obey the word of God and compare that to the people who don't know of (for 4000 years of human history BC, even today) or accept Christ but do what the word of God says. Now tell me, which ones is God going to let into the kingdom? I'll let you Christ tell you: Mt 7:21,22-23 Tim McHyde on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to IsraelYes, Thomas, but America already had many ships coming and going to NYC enough to satisfy the prophecy under Obama. America is the powerhouse economy (and military) of the world regardless of who is president. America has fit the economic and military aspects of the prophecy since winning WWII. After this great influence was established to spread American culture, then the depravity in the culture also described in Rev 18 came to fulfill that. We've probably fit Rev 18 fully since the 1960s? Jodie Pickard on The Story of My Next Book That I’m Writing With KatrinaHi Tim & Katrina, After a radical salvation (2006) away from the institution of the church but among a group of believers who lead us, baptised us at the beach we were at & then prayed for us to receive the Holy Spirit at a service they put together our journey began. (this happened with my husband) To this day we don't know which "churches" they came from. We were all away on an incentive trip we had earned thru work. Our entire lives changed, we were the first born again Christians on both sides of our families. Not one part of our lives were not effected. Its too long a story but you can imagine the response from our friends & family as we shared our miraculous story completely uncensored! Gods love that overflowed into our lives started the healing & deliverance we both desperately craved. Its been quite a journey that continues today. We found a "word of faith" church lead by a gifted teacher (definitely not a pastor) Our bible knowledge grew quickly & our own study of the bible started to reveal more questions than answers. Quickly I wanted to understand the bible as it was written, culturally & literally of the original language. Seeking a youth group for our children we moved to an ACC church but many frustrations continued. We awoke to the events to come through reading the book of Revelation & many years ago I found your Escape all these Things book. It was an answer to my desperate prayers as our son was set on a path to attend College in the USA on a baseball scholarship (we live in Australia) I was desperate to understand & before your book I was completely freaked out about him going there. We studied through your book with another family & last August our son moved to North Carolina. He went with the understanding that when the time comes, not matter where he is in his career, we move to Israel! We have just become supporters as we agree with your description of faith & look forward to gleaning more from your teachings. The questions that we have been seeking God about are; Revelation, prophesy, the rapture & how it fits today Who is saved, when & how (understanding the translated words eternal, eternity, everlasting ,hell, millennium, kingdom of God) The Trinity (is this possible, what does that mean for us as joint heirs with Christ) Are we called to evangelise? Can we get people saved? What is predestination & what is our role as believers? Healing, deliverance, miracles? Why are we not seeing more of this? Many of these questions you have helped us gain clarity of & the other great resource that has been helpful is herealittletherealittle.net Can't wait to keep reading your updates! Thank you so much, without your book I don't know that we would have been able to release our son. Or if we did we certainly would not have coped very well with the overwhelming thought of destruction coming to the US!! Blessings Jodie William Trinh on Michael RoodHi Jay, Just wanted to let you know that I read MOI and tried my best to keep up with Michael Rood's ministry a few years ago. Honestly speaking, he exhausted me. I believe his finest works are his teachings about the Feasts of the Lord, Solomon's Temple, the Biblical Calendar, and the Chronological Gospels (a must have if you don't already own it). Those were the teachings that drew me into his ministry. When I got to the point where I was motivated to keep Torah because I was convinced that was the right thing to do from Michael's teachings, I found out how difficult it was to keep up without the help of a community of like minded Torah loving souls. I met two other people here in Hawaii that followed Michael Rood and tried to start up a fellowship with them, only to find out that they had adopted Michael's very harsh, condemning attitude towards every Christian that didn't possess the same sophisticated Torah knowledge they had. That was a big turn off. Needless to say, my first fellowship meeting with them was also my last. As I studied Michael Rood's material, I would always compare it to the stuff Tim taught and they didn't always jive, particularly the end times sequence of events and Wormwood. In the end I decided to stick with Tim because I was tired of listening to Michael yell at people on his TV show, the Rood Awakening. I read your post and it reminded me of how sensitive my spirit became when I was earnestly seeking the truth of Yahovah. Because I desired truth so badly I was willing to expose myself to his abusive teaching style because I thought I needed it, and since the truth stung so bad I thought it was evidence of my utter backslidden-ness. Looking back on that period of time, I realize now that opening myself up to the kind of vitriol that came out of Michael's mouth and pen at times did more harm than good. I don't think you should feel bad if you think you need to take a break from Michael Rood. Yes, he added to my understanding of the Scriptures. His lessons on the Feasts of the Lord and his Chronological Gospels will always be treasured resources in my family. But I came to the conclusion that I do not need to follow his ministry closely because I've received what I needed. Sorry if my reply didn't provide the spiritual clarity that you are seeking. Just wanted to let you know that I can relate. William Trinh on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Hi Tim, I just read your blog entitled, "Why Jesus Will Tell Christians, "Depart From Me! I Never Knew You.". I think I get it now. As a matter of fact, I believe it was my struggle with this scripture verse that led me to find out about your teachings five years ago. Wow! Alot to digest. Liberating, challenging, and frightening truth you conveyed. Not sure how I would have reacted to that information had I come across it during my early, zealous, born-again Christian years. I probably would have labeled you a heretic or a false teacher. But now that I have separated myself from mainstream church life your article is somewhat of a confirmation. A confirmation of what I suspected long ago, that mainstream Christianity's doctrine of salvation is an unwitting deception spread by mostly well-intentioned, but nonetheless deceived people. I always knew deep down that Yeshua's words in Matt 7:21-23 were aimed at most if not all modern Christians but was too fearful of the spiritual dilemma I would be in if I accepted that to be true - because I would be a part of that "but Lord, Lord" group. But arriving at this conclusion about Christians and this verse made it very difficult for me to continue on in in the mainstream church. What was I supposed to do now that I realized that everything being preached in church was probably based on fundamentally false doctrines? Knowing what I know about church people, if I tried to have honest conversations about the problems I found with many of the core doctrines Christians hold dear, I would have been ostracized. So, instead of sticking around, I drifted away from mainstream Christianity and for a long time felt rudderless, jaded, and even resentful over the entire experience The sum of your teaching on this topic has confirmed and clarified what I believed all along. I can finally without remorse reject all forms of modern Christianity and instead put my faith in the Word of God that led me to discover the same truth you discovered before me. I really liked the "Christian vs Servant of God" chart you made. The part you said about "reputation" was particularly powerful in explaining why this mainstream, politicized, right-wing, Evangelical Christianity cannot be what Yeshua intended. Those people are certainly NOT recognized by the world to be followers of Yeshua because of their love for one another. So much to consider and set about changing in my life. Daunting and exhilarating. Thanks again for faithfully fighting the good fight. People are still seeking God out there and you just connected with one more. William Trinh on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Hi Tim, Thanks for your very frank and honest response. You are right, it will take some time to assimilate, but I must say that for the last 14 years of my Christianity, I have suspected that something in the traditional salvation equation didn't add up. There's too much personal entitlement in the doctrine and lack of accountability which is contradicted in so many places in the Scripture. It certainly makes more sense that God wants us to do good things for others, especially wicked people who despise us, without their knowledge - because that way we can understand how God Himself has done the ultimate good for all of mankind, most of whom despise Him and will never know what He did. This gives me a much better picture of God's selfless, radically generous heart in a way the traditional salvation doctrine derived from John 3:16-36 never fully could. It always bothered me how the traditional salvation doctrine sets up Yeshua as a stumbling block for all except the select few who go through the motions of professing to believe. I saw how teachings like this led to much elitism, entitlement, condemnation, and even laziness in the church. All of that said, I still find myself uncomfortable with your teaching because if John 3:16-18, 36 is no longer the foundation of Christian faith, then every other belief built upon it falls apart. "Salvation" IS the central doctrine of at least modern Christianity if I understood it correctly - so if it suddenly isn't as you suggest, what is? The modern day Church taught me that grace, mercy, and eternal life were extended only to those who professed a belief in Yeshua. Now you are saying that grace, mercy, and eternal life were extended to all of mankind as a result of Yeshua's death and resurrection regardless of what they believe. Plausible. I can see where Scripture supports this doctrine, but what a radical departure from the widely accepted norm in the Church! My question then, what benefit is there in knowing Christ now if many (if not most) people in the world today are capable of living according to the "golden rule" without any help from the Judeo-Christian Scriptures? Is there any purpose in sharing the knowledge of Christ with others if they are doing perfectly fine on their own, and would be entirely satisfied to discover that THERE IS a life after death and that their good deeds in this life did matter? With these people (which is most people I believe), would the promise of rewards, position, and authority in the Kingdom be enough of an incentive to become a follower of Christ? If the answer is, there is no benefit, no purpose in knowing Christ if all one cares about is living a good enough life here on earth to live again in eternity with their family and friends who too have passed - I'm ok with that. If the answer is, knowing or not knowing Christ does make a difference now and in the afterlife, I would like to know if that benefit goes beyond what you mentioned in your blog - i.e. divine provision now, position, and authority in the Kingdom. Please forgive me if my questions sound ignorant. I haven't read enough of your blogs to get a full understanding of your theological foundation. Most of the stuff I consume of yours deals with eschatological topics which I enjoy very much. If you've already addressed these questions in your writings, please kindly point me to the article. Otherwise I look forward to your response. Thomas Garza on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to IsraelTo illustrate the probability of a prosperous America at the time of her destruction; Here we are at 2017 having received "The Renaissance Man", Trump . His business acumen and vision clearly puts America on a course of revitalization, growth and expanding commerce. A two term Businessman-President with any real success can easily fulfill a scenario of America with 100's if not 1,000's of ships moored offshore and lamenting at what they are witnessing, yes ? Incidentally, Trumps " second term " places America at that 2024 time slot. Very interesting times are ahead. Thanks Tim. Tim McHyde on Support Team Members Content OnlyTeri, Rob Skiva is very good at generating interesting videos and books, but most of his ideas fall flat for me including this Nimrod coming from the Abyss theory. It's a nephilim spirit from the abyss, not a man, who then goes into the Antichrist. It also tells you the name right there and it's not nimrod. Teri Crandall on Support Team Members Content OnlyI was listening to Rob skiba, I think that's how his name is spelled he said in revelation it says the beast or antichrist comes from the abyss, and he speculated its nimrod...what do you think Tim?l Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too LateKent, read the article linked in that comment's statement (http://escapeallthesethings.com/faith-to-escape-tribulation) and you'll see how God will do that and keep us safe like he did with Shadrach, Messhach and Abednego. Capt. Kent on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too LateTim, You just said, "...flee your home and family to a nuclear fallout zone." Is that what you meant to say, or did you mean to a zone free of nuclear fallout? Check it out. Surly, fleeing into a nuclear fallout area isn't a safe place to go. Capt. Kent Tim McHyde on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to IsraelHi Anthony, thank you for your kind words and all you do. Thank you for considering me worthy for the invitation to speak. I don't know what I'll be doing then or speaking is what I'm supposed to be focusing on now (much still write and record and build up the website and improve my family's income for some big bills coming up). But I will consider and pray about it. Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”William, yes radical teachings like this take time to assimilate. What I'm saying is actually what a Biblical scholar would confirm (or a good commentary) as the teaching of the Bible, and different from what lay Christians think. That, yes, salvation does not depend on hearing about or receiving Jesus. Paul says the same thing in Romans 2:13-16 that people who do what the law says (love God, neighbor) even without hearing it are saved by their acts because it's not about hearing, it's about doing. But there has to be faith involved somehow. This is hard to describe how it works, such as in the case of an ancient person who never heard Scripture. What do they have to know or think about God in doing mercy towards other. I can't answer that yet. But I'm sure a Jew without the NT who accepts God and obeys his Word is indeed saved without accepting Yeshua. One day they will find out that Yeshua paid the price for their sins so that their righteousness and faith could get their sins covered. Tim McHyde on Support Team Members Content OnlyWilliam, thank you for your note and generous support. I've been to Hawaii once in 1991 for a Feast of Tabernacles. I'm now further away from you than ever so it looks unlikely I'll be able to enjoy your hospitality, but perhaps God shall give me a time of travel. If you hear that happening, contact me since I probably won't be able to remember or find your comment =). Andreas on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to IsraelTim, thank you for another great article. Please forgive me, If I'm asking a question you already answered, I didn't understand it. My question: Will the 144.000 Israelites be called by Elijah to make the move to Israel at the same time as the "Woman" group, in other words, will both groups be moving to Israel simultaneously? Or will there seperate calls/commands to move to each group at different times during the 2 year period before Beginning Of Sorrows? Bless you Tim & Katrina Tim McHyde on Know the Future – 8th EditionDoug, by that logic, Israel never would have developed a nuclear program at all given how her main enemies lay on every border. But in truth it's not a problem as most of their enemies are not upwind. The westerly winds at Israel's latitude mean they only have to pay to not nuking due west. This means not nuking the Mediterranean Sea or the Sinai Peninsula which is probably not likely =). Even then, if do air-bursts (detonate high above the target) and limit the fallout greatly. It's the ground bursts that send so much radioactive debris into the air that there are longer-lasting effects. Tim McHyde on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Francis, See Are Israel's Jews Fake, Khazar or Edomite Jews? for the proof Israel today is true Judah. Revelation 3's letters you are quoting talk about people in the church back in the early centuries who say they are Jews and are not. It also has a mention of those who say they are apostles and are not. Well first it was about people long ago, not today. Secondly, Jews of Israel today are not believers in the church anyway or trying to be. Mostly they don't believe. So Revelation is just not talking about Israel when it says those who say they are Jews and are not, yes? William Trinh on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Hi Tim, Thanks for the teaching. It's going to take some time for it all to sink in. There are some very radical elements in there: "And that's “therefore” how God judges who gets into the kingdom and who doesn't. It's not about knowing Yeshua or “accepting Yeshua as Savior” because, again, I remind you that not all of humanity can meet that requirement." So just to clarify, are you saying that everyone who "treats others as they would like to be treated" will gain access to eternal life in God's Kingdom regardless of whether they believe in Yeshua or not? And belief in and acceptance of Yeshua as the Son of God, as well as our savior is no longer the criteria for salvation? Rather, belief in and obedience to Yeshua will guarantee that our good works will maximize our rewards in the Kingdom of God. I think that is what you are saying, which is a radical departure from what I've believed all of this time. I completely follow your logic, but will have to unlearn all of the stuff I learned in church before I can truly internalize what you say the Word of God is saying to us. I'm not challenging or disagreeing with you, just wanted to make sure that I understand you correctly before I set about overhauling my belief system. Sue on How We Escape the Great Tribulation: Faith, not a RaptureTim, since first reading your view that it will take great faith to leave on Elijah's instruction, I felt rather despondant about leaving any relatives or friends who have disabilities or frailties that seemingly would make it impossible for them to go too. I would feel too guilty (or perhaps even cowardly) to leave them for my own safety. Your update at the end of this article has lifted that burden from me. If, as you say, even people who seem not to be able to travel for any reason at all, will be given divine help to do so, and they know that, it really levels the playing field. If everyone who believes has the same opportunity and help to flee and they actually choose not to, then the decision for me can be based on my faith alone, not out of duty to anyone. Thank you! Anthony Ianosel, L.C., Ret. on Elijah’s Coming and Immigration to IsraelDear Tim, It's great to see you holding firm to the faith in Jesus Christ and His 2d coming! I'm encouraged and very impressed that you are dispensing biblical truths which really matter, in our sorrowful world that surrounds us all Christians! I am happy to recommend all of your books of prophesy to the regular Bible reader, as a very valuable aid in understanding prophesy that is developing under our eyes in the Middle East, in Europe and the USA. I encourage all Bible readers to order Tim's prophesy books and really give them a good reading! You will never regret it for learning the true meaning of those biblical prophesies, which elude the superficial readers of the Bible. Tim really put his heart into his books. In other order of things, I'll be in Romania this May-June, 2017. I wish to invite you to visit with us (close to Timisoara-less than 60 miles), if you happen to be in the near area! We will take care [free of charge] of lodging (in our estate for one week), free food (3 meals/day), and transport'n from airport and back to nearest Int'l airport in Timisoara. I'm sure that I can arrange for you to speak at a big Seven Day Adv't church in that area. You can relax for one week in a beautiful, uncorrupted, leafy nature, drinking artesian water all you want, natural mineral water all you want, and eating uncorrupted veggies, potatoes, lamb, chicken, veal, beef meats; and fresh oyster-mushrooms, fresh cow milk, fresh chicken eggs; other traditional Romanian preparations (like the famous cabbage meat rolls, meat rolls, and hard famous "Sibiu" salami). We have a huge, brand new kitchen (all German-made style/tools), and a 75 people eating area with tables/chairs next to the kitchen. It is run by my nephew and my sister. We have a lady employed who is a food specialist (Cheff), who prepares food for our guests who visit us there from Germany and Austria. I speak fluently English & my nephew and brother-in-law both speak fluently German. Also, 10 miles away we have a huge hospital-if ever needed (I had not been there at their hosp. while visiting!) William Trinh on Support Team Members Content OnlyTim and Katrina, I thank you so much for your ministry. Your teachings have been a blessing to me for many years. I feel very honored and privileged to be able to contribute to supporting your ministry and family. If you ever feel called to Hawaii, please get in contact with me. May the Father continue to smile upon you and guide you. With Aloha, Bill T Doug Allitt on Know the Future – 8th EditionHi Tim, Surely if Israel nuked her neighbours Israel itself would become uninhabitable from the associated fallout? In a nuclear war both sides lose. Cheers, Doug. Frances on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Where in bible prophecy does it say the Jews who are there "now" are the true Hebrew Israelites? Why does revelations say they are not? Tim McHyde on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Hi Ian Israel is literal Jews because prophecy says so. Tom on Gay Marriage and America’s Judgment in ProphecyNow I know why God spoke to me to support you! Pastor Tom 😉 Ian Wetherall on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Hi from "beyond the morass rivers of Ethiopia.....Zeph.3: 10.What makes you believe that the Jews are literal Israel...who was Zephaniah referring to in his prophecy, Ethiopians ? or possibly Jews living in Southern Africa...or is it a downtrodden people that the world has despised because they were resolute in not mixing their bloodlines?Regards, iwetherall@ gmail.com Mary on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsOh, I guess I can see that if you are someone who believes in two plans of salvation: saved by grace, kept by works. That makes sense then. Thankfully I know that works are most definitely an evidence of someone who is truly saved but nothing in me (no righteousness on my part) is what I'm trusting in for salvation, but in the finished work of Christ on the cross. But now that you explained it this way, yes, I get it. None-the-less we are supposed to love His appearing and even John, at the completion of writing Revelation said, "even so, come Lord Jesus!" I pray others will GET excited about it! Thanks for helping me to understand how they may not be. Mariann on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)The timetable of the last seven years are mentioned in two places in the Bible 1. Signing of the covenant (Daniel 9:27) 2. Rising of the Beast (Revelation 13:1-10) From Revelation 13 we understand that 1. The beast arises 2. Its mortally wounded head is healed 3. The world marvels and follows the beast 4. It continues for 42 months 5. After 42 months it blasphemes the tabernacle of God 6. Then it will trample the holy city for 42 months ( Rev 11: 2) All the above characteristics of the beast is found in Isis 1. It is beast like and it started rising during the end of 2013 2. It's lost caliphate was re established in 2014 June 3. It has worldwide following 4. It has almost continued for 3 years 5. It is threatening Israel So we see that the two great events mentioned in the Bible for the last seven years are 1. Signing of covenant by Iran 2. Rising of ISIS Though both are now opposing each other when Jerusalem is attacked they will join forces. Because Revelation says the beast will be assisted by the ten horn nation Iran has an alliance called ECO which is a ten member alliance of Muslim countries. These two major events of the last seven years began taking shape during the end of 2013. I think God gave signs like the four blood moons and eclipses and super moon during those periods to show that the tribulation period started. Undoubtedly the beheading of our Christian brethren in the Middle East shows that the tribulation period started. As the body of Christ if one part suffers the whole body feels the pain. Tim McHyde on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsMary, First, my statement you quoted refers to prophecy theories in general, not just this one. Even this one is not specific to the rapture, but is also interpreted as tribulation, second coming or other things. Hence the worry even about Sept, 2017. Second, even if it was just the rapture, as a person who talks to lots of believers, I can tell you many believers have doubts about their salvation in general or at least at certain times in their life. "What if the rapture comes when I'm not ready?", they worry. I hope you can see that not everyone is as blessed as you with confidence and excitement about the rapture or the next rapture date theory. Tim Mary on What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells UsI'm mostly just confused about ONE of your comments...this..." More theories catch on, spread and worry people than ever before. " What on earth would "worry" a Christian about the Rapture????? I have been a Believer since I was 5 years old and have LONGED for His appearing ever since. I have never in my life understood how any TRUE Believer could NOT long for His appearing. In fact, it is a COMMAND in Scripture! We should be looking forward to it and longing for it with great anticipation! If we are not, then we must seriously question where our affections are. Now, before a billion people jump on and say, "what about non-Christians, don't you care about them????" OF COURSE I care about the, I have shared Christ with others for years now, I care deeply, I have sobbed over the lostness of family and friends, but none of that is going to change who is going to be saved....and none of that makes me long to remain in the fallen world for even one second longer than the Lord decides I must. chip griffin on The Two Witnesses – Would You Want This Job?i think i know one of the two. do you have any questions that would prove or disprove in your own mind? 7707221415 chip, give him a call Tim McHyde on Revelation 14:6 – Who Will Preach the Gospel Globally?Ernie, see my new article that explains this question. It's not about countries that the Christian gospel reaches. It's about the Gospel of Jesus, the Good News of the Kingdom returning. Tim McHyde on Gay Marriage and America’s Judgment in ProphecyMark, exactly. It is my understanding that all these assorted strange OT prohibitions are related to outlawed pagan practices other nations were doing. The commands were not given to state universal prohibitions for all time and all situations. Ernie on Revelation 14:6 – Who Will Preach the Gospel Globally?If the end will come when the gospel has been preached throughout the world, then if we know the stage of this program we would have some indication of the nearness of the end, Christ's return to earth and to bring about His rule. What is your view on what stage we are at in this endeavor? Are there any nations which have not been reached by this message yet? Mark Wright on Gay Marriage and America’s Judgment in ProphecyGod condemns' trimming your beard in the same verse that He condemns homosexuality. What are we supposed to do with that! Are these equally abhorrent? That bothers me more than the supreme court ruling. Tim McHyde on Flat Earth Debunked by Bible ProphecyJust Me, Even Flat Earthers don't all say the earth is "immovable." Some say that it's moving upwards to create the downward pull instead of gravitational force. So that verse does not help everyone in the FE cause, if it were literal, which it is not. It's poetic, a quotation from a song of David Psalm 93:1. I would not call it wise to quote songs (using poetic or figurative language) for cosmology!

I do not have an act. with them but with Visa thru my bank. do you have an answer for how I can do this and by pass Pay pal. Jim Black on Why “No Man Knows the Day or Hour” Does Not Apply ForeverGreetings Tim, Great article. Nowhere does Jesus say that the "day and hour" is pre trib as they like to say. His imminency (Emanancy:) is "After the tribulation (Matt. 24:29 Luke 21:28). Those who believe pre trib must be informed of this. Tim McHyde on Flat Earth Debunked by Bible ProphecyAnna, thank you. Anna on Flat Earth Debunked by Bible ProphecyThank you for this post, I understand your reluctance to post it but I'm grateful for the respect contained and the simple answers used. Thank you for all your effort and research. Tim McHyde on Identifying the Antichrist: 8 Myths Not To Fall ForKeith, People say that about people all the time, but with no evidence. Australia is not part of the land conquered by the Roman Empire and therefore according to what Daniel said, no prince there fits for the Antichrist. Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too LateAnn, thanks. Yeah, Christianity does not teach people how to make Jesus Lord, do what he says (obey God's word), which makes you like him. Did you see my new support team where I have new research and studies on Yeshua's words and how to follow them, like the sermon on the mount? Ann on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too LateTim - I love how you stated that, the challenge will be whether you obey he's commands or not. That seem to be a very big problem with Christians today obeying God's word. Thanks Tim. Kath on Identifying the Antichrist: 8 Myths Not To Fall ForTim, I am a lapsed Catholic (mainly due to the figures that are being questioned for child sexual abuse) but I have been told recently that my fellow Australian Cardinal George Pell is the anti Christ. Heresay or something truthful? Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too LateDestiny, The prophet Elijah is coming and you won't be able to miss him, so don't worry. The challenge will be to obey his command to flee your home and family to a nuclear fallout zone. If you're worried just do as Yeshua said, pray now that you may have the strength then (Lk 21:36). You have plenty of years to petition God in that way. Destiny on The Mark of the Beast – If You See It, It’s Too LateI'm confused!! So there will be many prophets sent from God, and your saying we could escape from the mark that the beast wants us to take by leaving to a place that we could be safe, because all this mark of the beast, being killed is just scarying me, and I do want to make it to heaven and will not receive it. I just don't want it to be to late to except it for me and for others so please can you help me with that also will the prophets be the one to lead us to the right direction to go to?? To leave. Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Mariann, the problem with your theory is that the 70th week/final 7 years begins in the spring like all Biblical years, not November. Also, if the 70th Week began in 2013, then we're already missing a few events like Elijah, ME war, WW3, Wormwood and in fact the Abomination would be right now, this winter! Finally have you ever asked yourself how many would make it if events happen with as little notice, warning and preparation from God as like your theory and common theories always make it out to be "this year or next"? It takes time to spread information and marshal people and resources to get people to safety. Practically nobody would make it if we had as little notice of these things as you envision. I learned all this by going through Y2K in 1999 and actually moving on short notice to finally realize what I was missing thinking that this could be it without a warning.

But it's not. Wormwood comes and wrecks the world and the Antichrist comes up and offers to restore order and food for the world. See http://escapeallthesethings.com/antichrist-myths for more on how the Antichrist comes to power. So you can see Brexit matters not one bit when the whole world and its current leaders are going to be mostly wiped out! Gabe on Antichrist Identified From 666 and Revelation 13?How does Brexit factor into this, now that the UK is no longer a part of the EU? Mariann on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)I think the final 7 years started on 24 th November 2013. That was when Iran confirmed the nuclear deal with the great nations of the world. Daniel 9:27 He shall confirm a covenant with many for a seven years. But it the middle of the week he shall bring an end to the sacrifice. Iran wanted the deal to be seven years. Probably iran would have agreed to the deal on their own terms though not openly. Now it is nearly 3 years and 2 months since that date and Iran has started threatening Israel Probably Israel will just bring the altar to the Temple Mount and start sacrifices because they have no objection from US Revelation 11: 1 shows that the temple has only the altar and people worshipping. Jews believe that it is the specified altar and specified location that matters to start the sacrifice. So the great tribulation may start soon. The rapture of the church will take place shortly after the abomination sits in the temple of God. 2 Thess 2: 1 -3 says Brethren concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering to Him we ask you not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled either by spirit or by word or by letter as if the from us as though the day of Christ had come............... That day will not come unless the man of sin is revealed. Here we understand that the day of the Lord happens secretly that the Thessalonians feared that it had already happened even without their knowledge. Paul does not say that the event cannot be missed. He only argues that it will happen after the abomination is revealed. If we read Mark 13: 14 -16 We find that after the abomination sits in the temple there are two verses 15&16 Those two verses are explained as the rapture in Luke 17: 26- 36 Hence the rapture will take place after the man of sin is revealed Linda van der Vyver on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Hi Katrina, As always, your reply has given me much to think about .... I am so grateful for Gods grace in leading me by His spirit, to learn, to grow. And for people like you and Tim who has opened my spiritual eyes 8 years ago, to see the truth of the Bible! You are amazing as a life coach and I have learnt so much from you. Love and prayers, Linda Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Mike, indeed the congregations are not mentioned anymore in Revelation simply because they disappeared from history and prophecy would be inaccurate to say otherwise. You won't find those congregations founded by the apostles for a long time now! However, the church body beyond those congregations continues forever and is seen throughout Revelation in many forms: the 144000, two witnesses, "the woman," "the rest of her offspring who keep the commandments and have the faith of Jesus" and "those who were beheaded" and probably more I'm forgetting. Oh, the faithful church is there throughout Revelation, same as today. Just don't expect to find the faithful ekklesia organized neatly in the congregations of Christianity you commonly find. We the faithful scattered remnant connect on the Web through sites like this. =) Samual Yoder on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewTime for God is relative to him and to us. Time to us is linear, to God not so. Soon or even very soon to us is quickly, to God who considers a 1,000 years as 1 day and 1 day a 1000 years then to him it has only been 2 days since his son died. I guess you could say 2 days to God is soon for him, but it is not soon to us. It depends on which view we are taking of time, God's or ours. Tim McHyde on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewJohn, if you don't accept the Book of Revelation as Scripture, then why are you reading and commenting on my site which shares research based largely on what I have learned from taking that book literally? The "SOON is already past" argument is weak (even when you add the word VERY which is not there). Soon is not an exact term; it's relative and subjective. If only 1900 years have elapsed from when an eternal being inspired "These things must take place soon" (Rev 1:1) to be written, who can say for sure that from HIS perspective it's a false prophesy. Tim McHyde on Parable of the Fig Tree: Jesus On Knowing If He’s Coming Now or LaterJames, It does not matter how much you move or widen the goal posts, Yeshua stated unequivocally that you can't know the exact time his return from the Bible (or anything else) as even he the Word of God incarnate did not know. The Bible has less than he had in him. http://escapeallthesethings.com/no-man-knows-the-day-or-hour John on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewI find it difficult to relate your exposition of the Book of Revelation to (a) verses 1 & 2 which specifically state that all the things described in the 'book' would happen VERY SOON after it was written: v.1 "God gave him (Jesus) this revelation in order to show his servants what must happen VERY SOON: v 2 "For the time is near when ALL these things WILL happen". Some 2000 years later is not VERY SOON! and (b) that the Book of Revelation was a fairly late entrant to what we now call The New Testament cannon. The texts which were approved for the early Christians to read and those which were considered sufficiently authoritative to be included in the New Testament were included in some previous lists but were ‘officially’ decided by Council -The Council of Laodicea (363 CE) - which for example, forbade the reading of private psalms and ‘un-canonical’ books in church and encouraged the public reading of only ‘canonical’ books of the New Testament and the Old Testament (Canon 59). In later manuscripts of this Council’s decision, a list of the books comprising the New Testament, as approved, corresponded to our present New Testament with the exception of Revelation, which was not included. This was not merely an omission, because such list agreed with the writings of the Bishop of Alexandria (c.315-386 CE – Catechesis 33-36). The earliest listing of all the 27 books of our New Testament (including Revelation), in the form that we now have them, is not found until Athanasius’ ‘Festal Epistle 39’ (c.367 CE) which was approved by the Synod of Carthage in 397 CE. In view of this the Book of Revelation cannot have been thought of, originally, as 'authoritative' and only became accepted over a considerable period of time (some 300 years!). This must cast doubt upon its reliability for any period other than that in which it was written and even in that the arly church took little heed of it. Sue W on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Well, Tim, that was an interesting article! I haven't studied Jesus' sermon - just read it a couple of times. When faced with a difficult or unpleasant situation, I have often silently wondered "What would Jesus do in this instance?" Now I know: take the opportunity to demonstrate radical love! What a habit that is to start cultivating! Increasingly, as I read your articles, I find myself looking for the literal meaning in scripture (as long as it's not obviously symbolic). "Audience" trips me up though. Determining what scripture is directed at we "future" folk as opposed to those around at the time. James Clement on Parable of the Fig Tree: Jesus On Knowing If He’s Coming Now or LaterTim, If you take to approximate date of Jesus birth and add 70 years you see the destruction of Jerusalem as Jesus predicted on 'That' generation? Would it not follow the same pattern from 1948 upon 'This' generation? I do not believe in a pre-trib rapture nor the setting of exact dates, but adding or subtracting 4 years concerning Christ's birth and adding or subtracting 10 years concerning the length of a generation 70-to- 80 years seems to put us in the 'season' of Christ's return. 2018 to 2028? The wise men did not know the exact place or the exact time of the birth of the new King, but they knew the season. Jesus also criticized His generation for 'Discerning the weather but not the times' Please know that I am not trying to trip you up but I have been reading your work for years and I am open to being corrected.- Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Jim, I think fornication implies not just intent, but action, yes? Thanks for commenting. Jim Peterson on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”I have asked my Pastor about the same thing, and I get references to Paul said-----. When I ask to reference in the Law (very specific on who you cannot), or red letters it becomes more difficult. I asked someone who claims to understand the Greek , he claims Fornication implies intent. Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)August, No verse says "THAT generation". See my article on what Jesus meant when he said "this generation" to the audience standing in front of him. August111871 on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Hello Tim, I like what you have here and agree mostly. My question is it says that the Generation that sees Israel become a nation WILL see the coming of the Lord. I believe this is WHY most believe it is soon. What are your thoughts? time on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Yes, definitely. To summarise the whole Bible in one clear sentence is very helpful, as otherwise there is a lot to try and juggle in your mind! In times of confusion I can now simply recall the single most important sentence in the Bible, and it's certain to help give peace and improve my decision making. I don't have a religious background, but I too was uncertain about the grace/faith/works debate, as it seemed the Bible was saying different things at different times. But your ability to hone in on that word 'reward' and discover its true meaning makes things much clearer. I'd like to take a guess at Matthew 6:22-23 as well. Assuming the word light refers to spiritual (and/or physical) goodness, and the word dark refers to spiritual/physical indecency, then perhaps he is suggesting the health of a person (spiritual and/or physical) can be seen when you look into their eyes? I believe you can sense a lot about a person by looking in their eyes. A person with shifty eyes often has a shifty personality, one with bright eyes a bright personality, etc... its a guide you can use to get a sense of character. Just a guess... John Lemons on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2017 (or even this decade?)Sorry! I am sorry, I meant to say 1Thess. 4.... Please excuse me, I am a 57 year-old, 33-year Head-Injury Survivor. I thank God that he helped me survive an awful accident. Blessings to all, John Tim McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Tim, thanks, I appreciate the love. But did this article teach you anything new or change the way you view Yeshua's words? I'd appreciate more feedback if you can. Tim McHyde on When is the Great Tribulation Not Coming?Kenechi, Yom Kippur DOES NOT start the sabbath year in contradiction to every other year starting in the Spring with Aviv. Why would God instruct them to sound the trumpet that day before the Sabbath year? Read the answer from a Jewish, native Hebrew-speaking expert, go to the heading "Q: What about Leviticus 25:9?". Tim McHyde on Identifying the Antichrist: 8 Myths Not To Fall ForAdyam, thanks. No American can be the Antichrist, therefore I don't agree that Trump is the antichrist. Dreams are of course of subjective interpretations and origins. I think you had a pizza dream, no offense. time on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Just finished reading the new parts Tim. I love your writing, thank you. JesusisLord on Identifying the Antichrist: 8 Myths Not To Fall ForGreat article. Very insightful. So what do you think of Trump? Months ago I asked the Lord what to think of Trump, since so many American christians support him. I tried to support him, but something felt off. So I received a very short but clear dream. I saw Donald Trump and the number 666. Kenechi Okoli on When is the Great Tribulation Not Coming?Tim, thanks for these studies. Now, a good while back I came to see how the 7th month is actually the 1st month for the 7yr cycles of years without any consultation from any sources whatsoever, just in my own private studies. It just made far more sense. Why would God instruct them to sound the trumpet throughout all the land and proclaim freedom to slaves etc 6months BEFORE or 6months AFTER the Jubilee year had started? Instead, it just makes more sense that the Jubilee being a special year that came only once every 49 yrs would be USHERED IN with trumpet blasts and proclaiming liberty at the beginning of such a year Katrina McHyde on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Dearest Linda, first I would just like to send you a smile and a breath for a moment at how beautiful you are in trying to figure out how God wants you to deal with very difficult experiences in your life. Your willingness to stay engaged and learn from tough atrocities is such a great example to us all. You are not running away from God, or yourself, or what value you can get out of what you cannot change- which is past events. This world 'touches' us in very uncomfortable ways whether we are Believers or not. Maybe there exists someone on this planet where it hasn't, but I have never met one. Elijah sure could relate to being 'touched' in an uncomfortable way: All his prophet friends had been killed by Jezebel while he was away. He came back to find them all dead. Elijah was led to stand up to Jezebel's prophets and the people of Israel under the evil government control of Ahab, Jezebel's husband (I am making Ahab intentionally Jezebel's husband because even though Ahab was the king, he let his wife lead him and the people in whatever evil she wanted). Elijah challenged them with seeing if they could get fire to come down from heaven and consume a sacrifice. King Ahab and the people thought Elijah was the one who was going to be put to shame and put in his place. Instead, Elijah's direct challenge of those prophets of Jezebel (their god, Baal) showed the power of the One True God. Then Elijah told the people to go kill all the prophets of Baal. It must have felt good to have Ahab and the people of Israel on his side for a small moment and be so surprised by God consuming the sacrifice where their prophets failed, and then Elijah feels the retaliation of telling them to kill the Baal prophets just like the true prophets of God had been killed by Jezebel. This feeling lasted for a very short time. Yes, those prophets were killed on the spot, but when Jezebel was told, she said that one day would not pass before Elijah was dead. Now, Elijah had the power of God him and yet he was afraid of Jezebel and ran into the wilderness to hide from her and seek God! That tells you how powerful Jezebel was, that witch. Here are the points I am trying to make by sharing this story: 1) It is impossible to not get 'touched' inappropriately in one way or another when you are a true Believer because we live in a fallen, evil world and they hate us who are their enemies. Hey, they touched our Lord inappropriately in so many ways and even killed him. Expect the same treatment. 2) Even with the power of God with us to fight, it is still a war down here that we fight in (although the war is rigged because God already proclaimed we win the war before the war is even finished- We fight with faith that God always gets what He says). In the battles, we are gonna get hurt every once in a while as we learn to use the war tools God has given us and get better at using them. This does not mean God has left you or forsaken you. It means God is there with you to help you learn to fight with Him and His power, and never leave you or forsake you. And it is okay to be learning and not get it right all the time. Actually, whether you get it right or not, suffering will come. That is just what a war brings with it-suffering. 3) There is a time to fight and a time to run in a war. I would suggest deciding to do either of these things while holding on to the belief that God is either holding ground with you, or running with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Each technique has its own benefits and necessities in the middle of the war. They both can be misused and they both can be used advantageously. The huge question we all have as we are fighting is (and I see it in your questions), "When is it time to hold 'em and when is it time to fold 'em", as the old Kenny Rogers song goes? Well, I think we each personally have to learn how to fight this spiritual war by just taking each battle at a time, practicing, making mistakes, learning lessons, and not giving up. YOU ARE GOING TO SOMETIMES NOT GET IT RIGHT. That is OKAY. Just have a heart to keep wanting to try and fight with God. What a warrior you are, Linda! You are growing so much and you don't give up. Your fight to continue to go forward in faith is an inspiration to the rest of us soldiers. For the moment, I still see tolerance as trying to handle a terrible situation by yourself, which leads to emotional turmoil and fatigue. It seems to me that tolerance grows in to patience when the ingredient of knowing God is helping you at all times is injected into the circumstances you face, whether you are fighting or running. Our faith in God helping is our invisible shield that helps us win the wars. The thing about invisible shields is that we might think they don't exist because we cannot see them or feel them. We get to learn that we believe in them whether we can see them or feel them- that makes it FAITH (Eph 6). Hope this helps dear Sister Linda, Katrina Linda van der Vyver on 3 Secrets To Finally Understand (& Obey) Yeshua’s “Sermon On The Mount”Hi Katrina and Tim, Thanks so much for your responses. It seems that I was stuck in tolerance, rather than patience. I think what was happening is this: As I was sexually abused for over 2 years as a child, and I tolerated it because of fear, I did not speak up for myself or did anything to end it; until at the end of that period. I was so edgy and nervous by them, that when the man approached me again - he was the family hero at that time - (in front of my mother!) I pushed him away and finally spoke up to his and my mother's shock and surprise! I ran away and was trembling and in tears, but also relieved. With this current situation where I broke it off so finally with my job and my boss, I subconsciously knew I had to speak up for myself and end the abuse, otherwise I would be stuck in that "puppet" situation! So I did, and I felt relieved on the one hand, but also now I am paying the consequences with sacrifices and a very uncomfortable work situation for a few months 🙁 I want to refer to this: For example, when someone slights you, offends you or outright hurts you, do you do what you have always done, let them know, and demand they make it right, as justice and common sense dictates? Or do you “go the extra mile” not only restraining your impulse to retaliate, but also not complaining and not informing them about your thoughts on their inconsideration. Each slight is an opportunity to shine a different light in this way. Even if this person is your spouse or best friend who cares about you and normally receives feedback from you, you can choose differently. If you want the most credit with God, you can resist the urge to tell your spouse you felt forgotten the other day. So I have not done this! I could not restrain the impulse to retaliate as I felt "victim" again, as 45 years ago. I must admit that I did not pray about the issue fervently over time; just a few times I prayed for her and about the situation. I reacted in anger which has built up of tolerance over time. Katrina: I think the patience of God may be more on focusing on how God would like you to share His love in this situation, and how you can hold on to His love and let it heal you even if others choose not to be healed from the situation. As you can see, tolerance and patience might have different motives. I have never thought about tolerance and patience before (in this regard) but I clearly see now that I had to proof to myself that I can end abuse and be courageous (not that it brought me a better situation though ....) I will learn from this to focus on patience more in future. Love, Linda Jennifer Rinehart on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – Reviewyes Tim, Good. in response to above.. I am thankful for you, i ve read most all comments here, thanks. Jennifer Tim McHyde on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewLawrence, Yes Wormwood will return Earth to a 360 day orbit it had previously. As far as I know, only Earth's and Mars' orbits were affected to lose their 360 and 720 day orbits. How? By dwarf planet "Astra." For all the fascinating details, read Mars Wars by Patten. Lawrence Cigary on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewSo...the orbits now are nice. But we had "nicer" orbits before when we previously had 360 day years and 30 day months right? And we will have the "nicer" orbits again with 360 day years and 30 day months due to Wormwoods arrival, correct? Any thoughts on the cause of the first switch from 360 to our present "nice" orbits. Tim McHyde on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewThomas, right, but of course not every believer accepts a so-called Young Earth cosmology. But the bigger problem like David Morrison said in the video is if anything so big came by before it would be like a wrecking ball to our moon and everything else we see in nice orbits now. Thomas Garza on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewUntil the End, the argument and evidence will always be split between the secular and the Bible believer. Genesis Logic, a 3600 year orbit would mean that the second passage would require the Earth to be at least 7200 years old. If one ascribes to the Genesis narrative for Creation we're nearing Year "6000" , end of the Sixth Day and we would need to account for the additional 1200 years of Nibiru's orbit, yes ? Am I missing something ? Tim McHyde on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewCab, I do discuss the Sept, 2017 Reveleation 12 speculation in my previous article. It's not a sign of the second coming according to Revelation 12, but a sign of the birth of the manchild. Unless we're going to invent stuff that's not there. Nuff said? Tim McHyde on Planet X – The 2017 Arrival by David Meade – ReviewZak, I read your article. My response? It serves no one but the author when someone offers up data with a clearly preconceived conclusion of what it's about: much-needed evidence of Nibiru. Plus, assuming there are increasing meteorites, they can come from many sources The obscure an unproven source of Nibiru is the least likely explanation, yes?
