(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...

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 a new video per month, 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 9:1-14 (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:
"Depart from me; I never knew you!" - Jesus (Mt 7:23). The scariest event in prophecy is Jesus predicting he will tell 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 not rejected on that day, too? Understand that and the one requirement for salvation Jesus taught that Christianity does not in this major 4000 word article (double the size of my normal articles).
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, in 2017)...
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 know 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 forth warning the one viable response to Jesus' words. Armed with the right approach you can start over in your walk with God.
Coming April: Making Peace With How Christianity Deceived You (and With How You and God Let It Happen) — The realization that Christianity has deceived you is a sickening disappointment. How could Christians do this? How do you forgive God for allowing a sincere servant like you to be duped? Or how do you forgive yourself for not verifying in the Bible what Christianity taught you? What about resentment towards pastors and other Christian leaders who were accomplices to your deception? Learn how to deal with all the negative feelings that come as a truth-seeker seeing only more and more of Christianity's falsehoods the more you study the Bible.
Coming May: The Missing Manual to Overcome Your Obstacles For Becoming Like Jesus — From the studies on Jesus' words above you know better than ever what Jesus said to do, but you probably still struggle in making the changes. There's a good reason. We're all blocked from acting in love in at least one of three ways. Discover what they are and the secret to addressing the blocks. I hope to build this into the missing manual for spiritual growth you've been needing all your "Christian" life.

It is rewarding to know what the good news is as opposed to what I thought it was
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.
Found "the fundamental flaw" thanks to 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 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!
