It’s Official

Dear Loved of God fellow humans,

This is Tim’s former wife, Katrina McHyde.

This is the public announcement of Tim passing away on January 17th, 2022, at around 9:30 pm. He passed away from colon cancer and is now waiting for our Messiah to return where we can all be in The Kingdom together. Tim was prayed to be healed many times before he passed, and then he was prayed for three times after his passing for a resurrection by myself and a few others together. Tim still passed away. God decided to keep him.

Many people who followed Tim’s work have wondered if Tim was or is The Elijah to come. They were counting on him to tell them when to follow the protocols to be accomplished in the End Times. Personally, I don’t know if Tim was/is The Elijah, and it was never a huge question for me to fully know, because I was conceived in a church that strongly taught Bible prophecy and prophecy has been a part of my whole entire life up to this day. The conclusion I found of what Bible prophecy leads to is the SAME conclusion Tim came to:

To prepare to ‘escape all these things’, or be ready for God’s Kingdom on Earth, is the SAME preparation.

This same preparation means facing where one does not really think or feel God/Yehovah is one hundred percent good and work on it. And THEN in everyday life, one must work on loving God with everything you have and loving your neighbor as yourself. Besides, this message is also what John The Baptist taught to make a people ready for the coming of The Messiah (Luke 3 especially verses 10 through 14)

Any Elijah telling me to go somewhere won’t do any good if I am not doing that daily work. Plus, although Tim’s understanding of Bible prophecy was not perfect -as he admitted many times- there was enough understood to know what to look for next to happen in prophecy, and what to do when it happens.

What is going to happen to the Escape All These Things website and Know The Future book? As per Tim’s wishes, he told me to lead and support the ministry, keeping all the free articles and his book maintained on the website for you to learn where to go if the End Times prophecies start unfolding faster. Everything on the website will continue to stay functional for your use.

Tim spent decades researching and making content on Bible Prophecy. He shared while he was ill that he felt the work was quite complete on the website in terms of Bible Prophecy. But there was one project that he started with me back in 2013-14 that Tim did not find the strength to make happen which very much complimented the material on his website. We were to write a book together on how to work on life’s daily struggles in a relationship with God and loving your neighbor as yourself. Tim realized from the tens of thousands of emails he received over the years that people struggled with everyday living issues. These issues are actually what God calls us to focus on and face to grow spiritually and be prepared for The Messiah’s coming.

Since Tim was not finding a way to make that book over these years, I instead started making videos and a website as diligently as I could this last year to share what I felt led to share in that book not written. I have just been so blessed by God because He showed me so many things in my life to see Him more and more as purely good. To know how to grow in loving Him and loving my neighbor as myself is something I cannot keep to myself! I feel it’s freedom and I want everyone to feel that freedom! God’s love through what He showed through what The Messenger, The Messiah, said and did, and lived and died through, does set people free and give them peace. My own testimony says it is true. I just have to share it!

The website and YouTube channel are up and running and I am working on more content as I can. Now that I get to take care of Escape All These Things, the Owned By Love ministry, and our special needs adult son, and holding down a job, it will not be easy.

I am NOT worried! It’s all God’s anyway, including my son.

My loved fellow humans, we will be with Tim in Eternity praising our God together forever and ever. Here is a small excerpt spoken at Tim’s online memorial:

There was no contradiction for Tim with the belief that end times are near. He was the first to preach to be ready for end times and at the same time to be ready to live a long life until your natural death. His healthy skepticism, even to his own findings and interpretations of the Bible, was the healthy foundation of the ministry. As he said himself several weeks before his passing, his teaching of love for God and for others were the conclusion of his end-time prophecies.”

In Tim’s last months, he doubled down on focusing on his relationship with Yehovah. May this encourage you to be excited to prepare as a bride prepares for her wedding day.

With all love and belief in each of you, note that I will write you again with another newsletter.

Katrina McHyde

P.S. Please accept that I have soooo many tasks in front of me related to Tim’s passing and organizing for the future of my special needs son (+ holding down a job), that you will probably not hear back from me for quite a while when you write me a private message. I accept all of your prayers and support.

The End In 2026? It's Now Possible

Since learning in 2001 that Yeshua must return in a Sabbath year, I've had to rule out three Sabbath year cycle windows for the final 7 years (2003-2009, 2010-2016, 2017-2023). With the next window (2024-2030) 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 "birth pains" (WW3 + Wormwood, Lk 21:10-11) would hit near its middle in 2026 with Yeshua returning in 2030. Find out what's changed to convince me about 2026 and what you can do about it...

I just found this page tonight as I searched for more information about the end times. I wanted to relay Isaiah 57:1 to you.

57 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

My brother just passed away recently, and this bible verse kept popping up for me, but I feel that you needed to hear it as well. Praying for you and your son!

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

My heart goes out to you! I am so sorry for your loss. May you always have peace. He has fought a great fight and he will be rewarded. I will continue to pray for you and your son. God Bless.

    Hi Guys, Just want to let everyone know about the 2 week Holy land tour (Jordan side) you can watch at They will be filming Petra on tomorrows episode (part 3) Tim talked about Petra. Hard to believe he’s gone but happy for him that he ran his race so well.

Johan Pretorius - April 5, 2022

Hi Katrina, thank you for informing all subscribers, as a supporter I was aware of Tim’s passing for a while now.
From my side I still find it difficult to accept and come to terms with his passing, for me it feels as if some business is left undone and we are left in limbo.
You and Tim have played a major role in my outlook in life and my approach and understanding of religion as a whole. You taught me to get rid of the extra baggage we are being forced to carry from traditional Christianity and opened my eyes and mind to hand everything over to God and ask Him to run my life for me because He knows best.
This new mindset changed my life and improved my way of living. I do not waste my time anymore with things that don’t add value to my life.
I was really looking forward to be with both of you when we eventually meet at the safe place to carry on preparing for the coming Kingdom.
But as always we do not know what Yehovah has planned for us going forward, only time will tell how He will use us for his end times purpose.
So in the mean time I am keeping an eye out on the time line to see the events unfolding.
All the best to you and the family. Send regards to Jorg, it was good to see him in your video.

Michael Tuczynski - April 4, 2022

My condolences to you and family. Tim was a blessing to all and so are you! He is home now…we will see him again! Many blessings to you as you navigate through the present and future. Prayers will be said often!

Charles Elban - April 4, 2022

Thank you Lord Jesus for giving us Tim! We’ll see again brother in that eternal city of streets of gold!

Paterson BANA - April 3, 2022

Oh, dear! Katrina thank you for this post. Tim has touched many lives with his posts. He has sent several of us across the globe back to relook into the Word of God to get prepared for the coming day. As we all wait to gather with him to stand before the Lord’s Throne of Grace, he is also waiting for the elect whose names are written in the Book of Life to meet Yehovah. The Lord will comfort you and your son, and will strengthen you as you continue in His grace. The Lord will comfort us all readers too.

Kelly Pfister - April 3, 2022

I am so sorry to hear that Tim has passed. Prayers for peace and comfort.

    1. Katrina what can I say in a timely Tess my heart is broken I wish I can give you a big hug but when it came to mind as I was thinking about this to be absent from the body is present with the lord he’s in good hands out of pain and very happy my prayers are with you Katrina and Jesus is there for you take care you got many blessings coming may God bless you and your family .

Blaze - April 3, 2022

I haven’t ruled out his resurrection (and others…) because Tim made several future predictions.

– Makes sense to me to raise him after a public announcement.

– Precedent for miracles at or around Passover.

– If early predictions come true, likely future predictions come true.

2 Peter 3:11

Joseph Geevarghese Vaidhyan - April 3, 2022

Very very sad to hear the untimely demise of our beloved Tim. In future, at GOD’s appointed time, his soul will surely manifest in the ‘Elijah to come’ to lead us to safety.

Below pasted is my latest email to Tim privately, on 20th Jan 2022 (after just 3 days of his passing away) -“I just observed that this year May 1st is NIsan 30, May 2nd to May 30th is the month of Iyar and May 31st is Sivan 1. All 3 Jewish months partake in this May. Ramadan festival also falls on May 3rd this year. Any connection to middle-east and Damascus prophecy”

My prayers are with Tim’s family. GOD bless and be with you, always.

darran ingretolli - April 3, 2022

Thanks Tim, rest in peace.

Stephan Blackford - April 3, 2022

Thoughts, prayers and thanks.

Marcelle Pannekoek - April 3, 2022

I’m so sorry to hear that Tim has passed away! My sincere condolances for you and your children.

Ron Perkins - April 3, 2022

Katrina, thanks for the recent update for the public that weren’t on the “support group.” Is there anyone that will be able to answer questions and comments on this website in future? I will also try to continue communication thru ” Owned by Love” and pray always for you and the boys, especially this coming month and May as to the next possible clues as we all seek to “Escape all these things” and prepare spiritually by Loving God with all our Heart, Mind, and Strength and Love our neighbor as ourselves! Blessings in Yeshua’s name! Ron Perkins

john & lucy erwich - April 2, 2022
