(Were you trying to access a teaching but got redirected here?)
If so, it's because that content is just for "support team members." Let me explain...
(Existing team members can Login to access the original page.)
So...what is this 'Support Team' and why did Tim make it?
First, I understand the disappointment you may be feeling at not accessing the content you were hoping to. I know how you feel because this happened to me, too. I was visiting a friend's blog to listen to a podcast but found out it required a login and payment. It was annoying since I was used to only free teaching from this person for years. Why the change?
Thankfully, in my case, I decided to stop and ask him about it rather just go away mad. He explained how he had been led by God a while back to provide special, often deeper content as a "thank you" for supporters, the people who stand with him and financially support his research, writing, podcasts and videos. To my surprise, he said he was receiving more income from the support team than he was from his book sales (and he has many more published books than me).
This was intriguing because I had recently been praying about an income problem and what to do about it. My Know the Future book sales had been declining for years (due to the changing mobile/video web—not a lack of interest from readers). Book income (and occasional donations) have been my sole support since 2008, but lately they were not enough anymore. I was in danger of running out of savings with a wife and two children including one in international school here in Germany. (He could not get into free public school due to high level German needed.)
When a reader the same weekend told me he would stand with me for monthly support if I would set up a support team and commit to adding new content regularly, I knew God had confirmed this direction. It's very rare when someone "puts their money where their mouth is" backing up their suggestion to help with a financial commitment. And indeed he became my first support team member when I created it in October, 2016.
But is it Scriptural?
Friends, if I was independently wealthy or had great patrons behind me, it would be a different story. But for now I need your help to keep producing and sharing my Bible teaching. In case you worry this is wrong (as many Christians even suggest is the case for charging for my book), please note that Paul addressed this issue with the Corinthians. He said it was not only "OK" but actually right and appropriate for Bible teachers to receive material support for the spiritual support they give:
1 Corinthians 9 (ESV) — 4 Do we not have the right to eat and drink? 6 Or is it only Barnabas and I who have no right to refrain from working for a living? 7 Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard without eating any of its fruit? Or who tends a flock without getting some of the milk? 8 Do I say these things on human authority? Does not the Law say the same? 9 For it is written in the Law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain.” Is it for oxen that God is concerned? 11 If we have sown spiritual things among you, is it too much if we reap material things from you? ... 13 Do you not know that those who are employed in the temple service get their food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar share in the sacrificial offerings? 14 In the same way, the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel
Hope this helps you to feel good and right about supporting my work.
Special Support Team Only Content
Thank you for your interest in supporting my work at EscapeAllTheseThings.com. Here is the content waiting for you as a Support Team member:
What's the First Sign of the End? Jesus' "Gospel of the Kingdom" Proclaimed Again (After 1900 Years Without) - Jesus had a different Gospel than Christianity. In Matthew 24:14 he said the return of this gospel was the key event right before the end begins. Unlike Wormwood, which shows the end is here, this sign comes in good times and means they end soon... So what is Jesus' gospel and why have you not heard or understood it until now? Find out in this mega article (most of my free articles are around 2000 words) drawing much from the difficult Sermon on the Mount.
"Depart from me; I never knew you!" - Jesus (Mt 7:23). The scariest event in prophecy is Jesus' prediction that he will tell "many" sincere believers to depart rather than enter the kingdom. Why does he say this? Who does he say it to? How do you make sure you're not rejected on that day, too? Understand that and the one requirement for salvation Jesus taught (that Christianity does not, or you would already have these answers) in this major article on Jesus' harsh words at the end of the Sermon on the Mount. June 22 Update: due to popular demand, I added a new section harmonizing the many "only believe in Jesus" verses (like John 3:16) with what Jesus said about action requirements.
The Story of My Next Book That I'm Writing With Katrina - In this podcast (mp3) with Katrina, we cover my next book. I cover the insight about Christians I saw only after answering 50,000 of their emails that inspired the book. Hear how it will help you as a believer in a way we've all needed, but we have not known or put our finger on before. Also, learn how Know the Future returns in this book.
How and Why We Moved to Germany: A podcast explaining, "Why I'm in Germany now." I tell the story of how we "graduated" from Costa Rica after 16 years there to an upgraded life in Germany. Germany has given us a lifestyle conducive to conducting and sharing deeper research. And now, interestingly, we're just 4 hours from Israel (so I plan to visit again soon)...
3 Secrets To Finally Understand (and Obey) The “Sermon On The Mount” of Yeshua: Christians assume that they “follow Christ,” yet if pressed, each must admit that they simply do not understand much of Christ's teachings needed to know what he requires of followers. This includes the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus' manifesto for the masses that Martin Luther considered impossibly demanding. Find out why Christianity does not teach it, why it is so offensive (on purpose), and how Jesus is like Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid—only harsher. With the three insights below, you can finally understand and obey the teaching of Jesus to no longer refer to him as "my Lord" without making him lord, from the most important sermon of all time.
Jesus' Four Warnings On How Not To Respond To His Sermon (That We're All Guilty Of) — Jesus ended the Sermon on the Mount not with a final command but with four warnings on what not to do in response to his words. His warnings address the three traps every believer has fallen into—including you and I. What he says is absolutely brilliant as it shows he knew that hearers would be overwhelmed by the difficulty of his words and resort to using three common human problem-solving strategies. Normally effective strategies, they fail here and what's worse, you won't even realize they're failing for a long time—if ever. Once you know what the four warnings mean, you will recognize your own mistakes as a Christian and finally see in the fourth warning the one viable response to Jesus' words. Armed with the right approach you can start over in your walk with God.
So You Figured Out Christianity Deceived You—Now What? (Part 1) — Jesus specifically warned about Christianity coming "in this name" to deceive "many" by using his story (Mt 24:4-5 KJV), yet few Christians ever see the truth of this. When, after many years as a Christian, you finally arrive at that sickening realization that you have been deceived by Christianity, you can have a crisis of faith. How can God let a sincere servant like you be so duped by the one religion about Christ available? How do you forgive God or yourself for not verifying what Christianity said? Where do you go from here with Christianity, church attendance and what you call yourself now when people ask? (New section added June 23). Learn how to work through the issues that come up as critical thinker who knows Christianity has not faithfully delivered the “faith once delivered” of Yeshua.
Why I'm Convinced The End Begins in 2026—And What You Can Do About It — Since learning in 2001 that Yeshua must return in a Sabbath year, I've had to rule out three consecutive Sabbath year cycle windows for the final 7 years (2003-2009, 2010-2016, 2017-2023). This same insight enabled me to easily rule out every date-setting prophecy theory along the way, bringing comfort to many scared readers. With the next possible window for the 70th week (2024-2030) already less than 7 years away, I'm ready to share why I believe, based on the real end time sign of Mt 24:14, that this can be the one. If it is, the nasty birth pains (WW3 + Wormwood) would start near its middle in 2026 and Yeshua would return at its end in 2030. Why am I now sharing a “doomsday year” myself and how am I not a “hypocrite” for doing so? How is my 2026 conviction different from what prophecy theory date setters have done? Read on to understand what has changed, why I'm so convinced about 2026 and, most importantly, what you can do about it if time is indeed that short. (Updated June 16 with expanded summary of and explanation of my 2026 reasons, such as 30 + 2000 = 2030. For new content, search for "Samaritans" and "Summarized.")
Sam Miller’s Testimony – How Jesus’ Real Gospel (of the Kingdom) Changed His Life - Sam Miller is one of the early readers of my Support Team content. After the Great Recession in 2008 ruined his mortgage officer career, he became underemployed, in debt, bankrupt, 70 lbs overweight, depressed, suicidal and even angry at God. Here is Sam's testimony in his own words on how he turned things around by learning the real Good News of the Kingdom that Yeshua taught (and Christianity never has) and began "seeking first the Kingdom" by following the Sermon on the Mount as explained in the supporter studies.
Podcast: "Most Bizarre Speaking Invitation Experience Ever (in Cyprus) & Lessons Learned"— Katrina and I decided to take a supporter's (paid) invitation to celebrate our 25th anniversary in Cyprus and teach her friends. It seemed totally safe and we prayed about it before accepting. Yet it turned out that the supporter had ulterior motives that I never could have imagined nor could you. Find out what happened and the lessons we learned from this most bizarre speaking engagement ever!
So You Figured Out Christianity Deceived You—Now What? (Part 2)— When you reject religion and (finally) go direct to the Bible for your spiritual direction, immediately you are beset with doubts on which commands apply to you and how to do them. You grapple with evangelism, prayer, baptism, fellowship, worship, tithing, the communion, and much more. Amazingly, all these type of questions can be resolved simply with a radical paradigm shift. It requires reconsidering your concept of the Bible (inherited from Christianity): namely that the Bible is "God's law book" for believers to sift through. Understanding the Bible's place in history and true purpose for us makes all the difference with resolving these questions and doubts!
Podcast: How to End Disconnection From God — Do you ever have negative feelings towards God or confusion about what he wants from you, resulting in disconnection from God? If we're honest, we have to admit we all struggle with the task of loving and obeying an invisible Dad we have never met nor understood very well. Unfortunately, church fails to help us overcome this fundamental issue because the minute you get real about how hard this is and how Christianity has not made it any easier, Christians shut you down. They can't handle the "negativity" so they dismiss the issue with platitudes like, "It takes faith! Fake it til' you make it. You're too negative. Etc." In this podcast, Katrina and Tim share powerful insights and practical strategies that we have used to end this pattern for ourselves in order to finally have a strong, faith-based relationship with God. Learn how to overcome negative thoughts and know God as someone who cares for you so you can be in a connected relationship with him at last...
New Nov 10: Podcast — In this November, 2017 update on the ministry we cover support team developments, content plans and some helpful insights and concepts shared from the planned "Missing Manual" workbook. For example, how we as believers need to use the same strategy Victor Frankl used for surviving a Holocaust concentration camp.
Planned: The "Missing Manual" Workbook For Serving God — Problem: Nobody wants to say it and be labeled “negative” or “bitter,” but the sad truth is that even Christians struggle to serve a Father they've never seen nor heard. Yes, “this is a walk of faith and not supposed to be easy.” But still, have you ever felt like we're missing something fundamental given how believers are so confused, divided and lacking in good reputation and good fruit like Jesus and his disciples had (Acts 2:44-45)? Your suspicion is easily confirmed if you just read up on the first church in Jerusalem under the apostles. Instead of having a reputation for being judgmental, self-righteous hypocrites like Christians, the Jerusalem believers had love, public favor and esteem (John 10:35; Acts 2:42-47; Acts 5:13). Why the difference? Because Jesus trained his disciples in necessary fundamentals and the Jerusalem church learned these fundamentals from them (Mt 28:20; Act 2:42). Solution: Imagine if as soon as you became a believer you were handed a tutorial teaching you the complete fundamentals for serving God like Jesus taught his disciples? This book would finally answer what God wants of us and other common, big questions, but more importantly would share wisdom (Lk 1:17) and proven strategies for overcoming your biases, prejudices, and selfish, faithless nature to actually do what Jesus said. Those following the book would experience such spiritual growth that they would become like Jesus, just as Jesus' disciples were (John 10:35) and the first church following their teaching was (Acts 2:42). You could finally have that peace beyond all understanding (Php 4:7), see your needs always provided for (Mt 6:33) and have joy in all circumstances (Php 4:12) as you finally become kingdom-minded likes Jesus said to (Mt 6:33).
Katrina and I are already experiencing this and so are the people we are coaching. This workbook will transmit the same wisdom to all, first to supporters who help us develop it, then later to the general public.

It is rewarding to know what the Good News is as opposed to what I thought it was ... I think you may have just saved my life!
Oh Tim!!! What is the Good News of the Kingdom? I just finished reading [your first article] to my girlfriend. I didn't just read it to her we studied it, followed the scripture links, discussed it and recognized several comparisons in our lives and I can truly tell you it has blessed us this day. I feel extremely blessed beyond words and am grateful for this message...that has been right there all along!
It is rewarding to know what the Good News is as opposed to what I thought it was, and broken pieces of it at that. This messaged reached [my girlfriend] and I in many ways. It reminded me of when I first met her and recognized that it was like she was actually living in the Kingdom doing His will by her ongoing acts of kindness and the way in which she behaves and treats her fellow humans. She reached me by her actions of leading by example of what Jesus was trying to teach us all along.
Your explanation of the obvious message was masterful and revealing although it was not hidden from my eyes. ... To bring awareness and clarification to an otherwise major blunder on the Christian front. We need to remedy this! I will continue now to saturate myself with this teaching and all surrounding supporting scriptures connected to it as you have until it is embedded on my heart.
You again have plainly and masterfully written in clear terms with scriptural backed factual evidence, that was always right there in front of our eyes, to challenge our thinking about the true meaning behind this awful statement of why our Master said that Christians (or specifically those who practice the teachings) will be rejected at His coming!
"I sob just writing to you about ... the amazing turn around in my life"
What an amazing turn around in my life. I have spent most of this year being down in the dumps. Tim and Katrina have helped me see the reality of how God views me and what he has in store for me. We live in perhaps the most exciting time in human history and I get to be a part of it, God willing. Hope is an amazing thing!
Things for me are going EXTREMELY well! In a very short period of time God has done a 180 degree change in me that I am so thankful for. My hope is focused squarely on the Kingdom of God. It's so exciting to focus on all of the amazing things that will happen even between now and then, watching God's plan unfold and then culminate with the marriage supper and the millennium. And through the Blood of Yeshua I am set apart to God to be a part of the most amazing time in human history. With this realization what could possibly make me depressed? What could possibly make me dwell on things that happened to me in my past? God's goodness has become so abundantly clear to me and his presence in my life has become so wonderfully apparent. I sob just writing to you about it, right now.
No more will I concern myself with work related things, money, job title etc... or fear the future. My attitude has changed from someone who used to get upset when I would perceive someone disrespecting me at work to one of a humble servant.
I'm supporting men and women 20 years my junior, with a fraction of the experience that I have in mortgage lending. But who cares? If Yeshua could humble himself to wash others feet, I can humble myself to be of service to these younger colleagues. And since I have made that switch in my mind, my job satisfaction has soared.
Thank you Katrina and Tim for taking your time to help me through this time. I truly cherish you both. I am learning how to love myself and to love people and I feel a tremendous amount of love for you both and I cannot wait to spend time together with both of you in the place of safety...
God bless you!
Three weeks later, Sam sent this follow up note that demonstrates the genuine lasting improvement that comes from the kingdom wisdom of the studies here...
Hey Tim. Just checking in. Wanted to let you know things are still going great for me. I still have this high level of excitement most of the time as I keep my focus on the kingdom and following the suggestions you gave me about praying more and asking God for help when I get frustrated. Also trying to just love people more. I'm still feeling a lot more job satisfaction as a result. I just feel so happy and blessed. I have like butterflies in my stomach all the time kind of like the way you feel when you're excited about a vacation that's coming up. Anyway, just wanted to say "hi" and God bless.
August, 2017: "New Job!" Sam sent me the thrilling praise report below:
Tim...I wanted to share some good news with you and Katrina. I believe I just found my perfect job. And the income will be about $25k more per year. What a huge blessing.
I say its the perfect job because I will now be originating the loans like I used to (rather than as an assistant). In fact I will have others assisting me now. Wow! I'm even less than 1/2 the distance to the office from home so ill be putting on less mileage and saving money on gas.
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude and thankfulness to my good and awesome father YHVH!
After 37 years as a “Christian” going from one denomination to other...I found "the fundamental flaw"...through the Support Team
After 37 years as a “Christian” going from one denomination to other...and even with my own in depth study of scripture ... I consistently found myself bereft of any blessings of God. Desperate to know the truth while suffering through some major pitfalls and losses in my life, I broadened my search only to be ensnared in a convoluted net of scripture taken out of context.
But there was a major fundamental flaw that is so simple, yet so easily misunderstood that caused me to consistently shut off the flow of God’s blessing.
And I found that through Tim McHyde's Support Team.
Now, I feel I have a new lease on life and… a deeper understanding of the Character of Yeshua (God) and how to open up the flow of God’s blessings in my life. I am eternally grateful for the gift that God has given Tim in discerning the truth in Scriptures and what it's done for my understanding, faith and love of God and mankind.
"You offer comfort instead of terror"
I am a regular and have ordered everything before. I was so glad someone was presenting answers in a way that seemed to offer comfort instead of terror - and that after some specific prayer for enlightenment.
I like to support your ministry. I have also fallen in love with your wife, Katrina. Her passion and dedication enlivens me. AND I had no idea you guys struggled so much until recently. It sounds like things are more stable now, but in the past I didn't donate because I got the impression it wasn't needed.
I have no hesitation supporting your ministry. You have opened a world to me I am so grateful to have. I love to learn the truth as you see it, presented in a humble fashion that is not at all preachy. I really can go on and on. I love your site.
The first time I ordered your book, I started sharing what I was learning with all my family. (You do warn not to give away the e-book.) You also remind us that it isn't our job to make people understand.
In my novice zeal, I talked openly at the dinner table with my children and parents about the amazing things I was learning. I was met with strong opposition. While I don't believe in hiding my beliefs, now I do look for open windows before discussing them with anyone because of my experience.
Some people are scared of the truth or any beliefs that challenge their own. It still floors me, but I just keep it to myself unless I feel led or brave or whatever seems right. Your book belongs in everyone's personal library.
Sometimes, I guess we just have to be tested how much we want to hold on to truth.
So yeah, all of that to say, just keep doing what you do!
Your website has been a blessing since first I was lead to it. And that last article on kingdom living is a well spring of liberation. My whole focus in life has changed.
I pray never to lose this gift you have given me. I give God all the praise for it. Keep sharing, it's beautiful.
So, obviously I can write books of thanks for all this. But I'll let you go for now.

New! US Bank Account Transfers with Zelle
My bank, Bank of America, has added Zelle payment support to their phone app and your bank probably has already, too. This means with just my email address email@example.com you can send me your donation from your US bank account using your bank phone app. Just be sure to send me an email after you send money this way to tell me that you want support team access with the donation. (My website is not integrated with Zelle for the support team so I must set it up manually for you when I see your email. Please be patient if you do send the money in the evening since I'm 6 hours ahead of NYC here in Germany and probably asleep.)
Trouble With PayPal? Try This Workaround
I'm getting reports that some have password problems or strange errors from PayPal using the team payment buttons above. What has helped for several has been to use my old Donate Page instead which is less restrictive about needing a PayPal account. Try there if a button above fails to make a payment but makes a free account without access. Then email me and I will credit your account manually with the donation. (If it is not a monthly recurring subscription, be sure to tell me how many months of access your donation is intended to cover.)
For larger amounts, and to avoid too much of your donation going to PayPal commissions (around 6% of the total) you can mail a check or money order made out to Tim McHyde to:
Bank of America
P.O. Box 105576
Atlanta, GA 30348-5576
