  • Tim McHyde on Have You Committed the Unpardonable Sin (Without Knowing It)?Alex, yes it is quite a conclusion, thanks. The difference is, to ascribe the works of a proven, authenticated baptized-in-the-spirit prophet like Jesus to the devil requires a serious hard-heart in the face of overwhelming signs. That was the unique situation the Pharisees had with Yeshua in front of them who even called them "children of your father the devil." In contrast to this, laity and preachers doing questionable antics in the churches are classified differently since none of these people are authenticated prophets or baptized in the spirit by the apostles like the people in Acts all were (not even deacons like Philip did this). I've yet to see one of these so called "prophets" or "baptized-in-the-spirit" Christians that measure up to the quality and standards laid out in the Bible for these things. I see a lot of counterfeits missing key aspects, but close enough to fool the masses. That's kind of Christianity's calling card, "many deceiving many in Christ's name" (Mt 24:5). So I'm not uncomfortable to generalize about the group (not any individual, certainly not one doing signs like Yeshua. Would not say that!) To be clear, I'm not saying it's all 100% demonic, but at best it's a very lob-sided mix with the demons having the upper hand with the lack of discerning of spirits I've seen in these churches (even ones with deliverance ministries!).
  • Alex Mirchev on Have You Committed the Unpardonable Sin (Without Knowing It)?Tim, that's quite a conclusion for someone who just wrote that the Pharisees were accused of committing the unpardonable sin by attributing the power of the HS to the devil. I'm a Oneness Pentecostal and, like you, I find the way many churches behave themselves in the name of the Holy Spirit unnerving, but I will stop short of saying it is demonic. I will say that perhaps your church wasn't right, not the idea. Speaking with tongues was a common theme in the New Testament, and many times the tongues were not understood, as Paul says, they were between man and God. "For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding." I Corinthians 14:2?, ?14?-?15 NKJV http://bible.com/114/1co.14.2-15.NKJV I hope this post brings you edification, just as your writings have for me. God bless you.
  • Sue on Have You Committed the Unpardonable Sin (Without Knowing It)?Wow, Tim, I have to say as an aside, your website automatically linked my Acts 10 reference to the scripture for viewing. Never noticed that before.Probaby never mentioned a scripture. Did you write that script? Brilliant!
  • Sue on Have You Committed the Unpardonable Sin (Without Knowing It)?I've always wondered how does one know they have the Holy Spirit (HS)? It's certainly not speaking gobbeldy gook that no-one around you understands. If you have the gift of tongues, it's kind if the reverse of the tower of Babel. Can anyone claiming to have the gift of tongues speak to any foreigner they encounter in their own language despite never learning that language like the Acts crew? If not, it's not the Biblical gift of tongues. Does one have to be baptised before receiving the HS? Seemingly not. Acts 10 describes Cornelius' household being endowed with the HS before they were baptised. Do people who claim to have the HS behave differently (like- kind of Holy I guess)? I know a number of people who claim to have the HS who are quite nasty. The Acts crew clearly received the HS with all the violent winds and tongues like fire settling on them. After Acts, it seems nothing like that happens until the HS is poured out in the last days. I sure don't think I have the HS despite asking for it constantly. Maybe it's just not time.
  • mariette trapp on Efrain Rodriguez – Asteroid Prophecy 2014?there will be a chastisement if people do not repent. mr. efrain rodriguez is not wrong with his predictions we just do not know when these things will happen. check out the our lady of fatima apparitions they all coincide with mr. rodriguez's message. people must be spiritually ready and repent and change their lifestyles. as in the days of noah christ told us to be watchful and ready.......
  • Trace Horn on Have You Committed the Unpardonable Sin (Without Knowing It)?Tim, another great article, very polarizing it seems among the less mature, which is understandable; it is a hard teaching. An interesting thing I've thought of (Holy Spirit inspired?) as I pondered your words here, is that there are three types of Holy Spirit interactions with man, not just one. The first is a "basic" interaction, which all Christians should be familiar with, that is, the Holy Spirit giving us knowledge and understanding of Scripture, and speaking to us in that "still small voice". The second is a little more intense, and that is described in the old testament when the Spirit of the Lord would "come upon" a person, i.e. Sampson. I can't imagine this to be an indwelling of HS, as I previously thought before considering this article, since Sampson was obviously living in sin. Rather, it is more of a supernatural "inspiration" to accomplish the will of God, I believe to possibly be the same style of inspiration on the writers and composers of Scripture. Also, possibly an explanation for *some* who speak in tongues or dream dreams etc. (not of the Pentecostal church type, obviously). Then of course there is the third type, which comes by the laying on of hands, which may be lost now or for a time (I need to consider this more carefully before being sure). Let me know what you think
  • Diane on Street Healing Videos of Todd White and Pete CabreraThanks for sharing your experience. 🙂
  • Allan on Should You See/Read the Shack?I also agree Sherry. PPL need to read the bible for themselves and NOT depend on the church pastor to tell them all they need to know. Nothing wrong with going to church, just don't depend on the church to teach you everything, and the fellowship is a real blessing too. My last point for consideration is, God only lets us learn what what we can handle!! The more we learn, the more satan will be drawn to attack us. humbly...allan
  • Tim McHyde on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)Bekah, Glad to hear that and to help. I bet a lot of Christians who search truth like you needed someone to reassure them by saying this.
  • Felicia Dixon on Scott Clarke Prophecy Video Theories DebunkedThe Rapture is Pre-Tribulation. It's sound Biblical Doctrine.
  • Mike Moore on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?The Prince sounds like the principal character. If Christ will rule the nations with a rod of iron... how is He going to do this? He must be the ruler during the millennial. A physical person of some sort? Will He need to be priest during this time? Who shall declare His generation? Does Christ take on a physical millennial body during this time and complete His "cut off" life span? The fact that the prince offers sacrifices for himself and separates himself from the priesthood, is this to show how this political appointment should be handled in relation to God in all aspects of its authority to teach mankind during this time how it was meant to be? The fact that the man... Christ Jesus, returns... can he then have offspring as a man??
  • Felecia Nieves on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)Makes sense. I'm too busy trying to stay rooted and grounded in my faith to assault other folks believing their way is the right way. Clearly believing Jesus as the way for me is my foundation. Staying here and staying away from other people's ideas.
  • Tim McHyde on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)Sam, lol, glad to hear it. It's been something I should have written years ago.
  • Sam on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)Whenever I'm thinking something but can't quite articulate what it is I want to say, I just have to wait for another one of your articles and bam! Love this article.
  • Linda van der Vyver on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)Dear Tim, Thanks so much for this interesting article! It gives me a lot to ponder about, and I feel more equipped now, to answer a specific friend who is concerned about me, being swallowed up by "cults" 🙂 You have helped me numerous times over the years; and you are helping again today! Lots of love, Linda
  • Sue on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)The irony is indeed extraordinary, Tim. I hope this article reassures many to keep an open mind and insure themselves by being Berean.
  • Startingnow on Would God Allow His Bride to Go Through the Great Tribulation (And Why)?Hello Dianne what Mega Church do you mean in the Philippines? Is it starting with V?
  • Questor on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?When giving up 'all' for ones Rav, you need to be very sure that Yeshua has asked you for the sacrifice, and not simply be following what others tell you is what they think you should do. It is similar to being told that you must be 'perfect', as your Father in heaven is perfect...even though the term translated as 'perfect' is actually about completion, and is done in us through the Holy Spirit after beginning to follow Yeshua, and will not be completed until we are made immortal and righteous in the Millennial Kingdom. Being told to be perfect in my own strength at 7 years of age with the threat of hellfire behind it (gorily portrayed in a colored drawing of Dante's Inferno the size of a chalkboard) set me into a chase after perfection that I could not reach, and into deep self hatred, and depression for decades until freed of it through Yeshua. I have had, also, the bat kol's where you are impelled to do as you are told, although in my case it was two short orders on how G-d wanted my live to be lived. They were not onerous requirements, just hard to learn to do, but I did as I was told, and although I do it badly, Abba blesses me extremely, and I continue to be changed in him...by him.
  • Tim McHyde on Privacy PolicyShane, no, even if she became president which she did not. Mother of harlots refers to how America influences other nations to a lifestyle without respect to God but focused on luxury, sensuality, material, pleasure.
  • Joey Dail on Should You See/Read the Shack?Well said!!!!
  • Sherry on Should You See/Read the Shack?Amen!!! I saw the movie today, though I was hesitant, due to the controversy surrounding it... after all, "I didn't want to go against God".... I loved it! In fact, found my heart in tune with much of it. I found it to be a blessing! Tim, your words, "This is how discernment is increased and deception reduced. Wash, rinse, repeat"... hit home with me. It took me leaving the 'church' to find what my heart was yearning for - the True Christ! Though I've not "arrived"... I am ever thankful for where I am - and thankful for your thoughts.
  • Thomas Burke on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?One should only forsake such as stands in the way of worshiping the One True God as shown by Yeshua. If you think you should forsake all to follow another man(woman) to be closer to Him, you are mistaken! Stop, and ask Him to bless you with His presence... and seek independence (God dependent) from man(woman) so nothing stands between you and your Creator.
  • Thomas Burke on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?oh, and yes, "along with persecutions", I believed this was for people out on the go, preaching, etc., but looking back I have always endured a type of persecution in my profession for sticking to a moral position, when the one expected of me by a client or others would have made me feel ashamed in the presence of Yeshua. Here again, a witness, that very often I had to risk foregoing or forego entirely the income necessary to take care of my family in my independent (God-dependent) practice, and no matter how scary it felt, our Father always provided sooner or later in such a way I prospered more than had I followed the ways of the world. Not easy always, and I feel often the way I treated by many as a result was "persecutions" for living a more righteous life... not easy worldly wise, but more profitable soul wise!
  • Shawn harhouf on Should You See/Read the Shack?You should I think be able to watch the movie with the idea it may or not be right for you but at the same time with disearment.
  • Tim McHyde on Scott Clarke Prophecy Video Theories DebunkedTracy, actually my statement was correct. Rev 2:26 only says that they each saint rules with an iron scepter. It does not say the saints each rule "all nations." Only one person "can rule all nations with an iron scepter", of course, the Messiah. That's exactly what Rev 12:5 describes in fulfillment of the messianic prophecy of Psalm 2:8-9. The best of the saints do get to rule a nation each under Christ. We know this from how David rules Israel when he is resurrected (Eze 37:24).
  • TRacey on Scott Clarke Prophecy Video Theories DebunkedNO, he is not the only one who will rule with an iron scepter. REV 2:25 -28 only hold fast to what you have until I come. To him who wins the victory and does what I want until the goal is reached. I will give him authority over the nations;he will rule them with a staff of iron and dash them to pieces like pottery,
  • Thomas Burke on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?28Peter began to say to Him, “Look, we have left everything and followed You.” 29“Truly I tell you, said Jesus, “- no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for My sake and for the gospel 30will fail to receive a hundredfold in the present age—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and fields, along with persecutions—and to receive eternal life in the age to come.… Not sure if the audience Yeshua spoke to was limited to those around him then, but it is clear that the Gospel of the Kingdom as explained by Tim in recent articles does apply to all of us now and then. I remember when I was 20 yrs. old and gladly gave up what little I had in life (it was far less than most of my time and social class, but that is another story...) for Yeshua's sake and for the Gospel. I did not become much of a saint or preacher, and separated from the world of churches after barely a year or so. Nonetheless I kept the faith and did most everything as a prayer unto the Father. Today I now have exceedingly more than then after coming through some very unique experiences, almost always on a tight budget, even as now. My only real goal besides being true to my lady and mother of our three children, is to be able to fill more of my days with the study of His Word, so abundantly available from good sources online recommended by Tim as I transition out of my profession into an austere retirement some 45 yrs. later, but surrounded by my own extended family, with a good name and a beautiful happy home of my own. Why do I say this, so immodestly? Because I cannot refrain from witnessing that it is real not just theory, the Gospel, in that "all these things shall be added unto you"... My life is a witness of it! May the Father be glorified in our lives always and may his Commandments sustain us always!
  • Tim McHyde on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?Kathryn, there is no difference between then and now as far as the love commandments Yeshua told the Rich Young Ruler to follow to enter the Kingdom/have eternal life (Mt 19:17-19). But to follow Yeshua was a special privilege where you learn how to master the commandments and gain secrets to mysteries of the Kingdom. He told him to give up all as the other disciples did (as Peter attested in Mt 19:27) for this privilege, probably knowing this was a test and a great chance to teach how riches often keep people from even seeking the Kingdom, unlike the Rich Young Ruler. The RYR was willing to keep the commandments but not become a disciple. He was saved up until the point if the riches got in the way of keeping God's law.
  • Kathryn Arnold on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?To refer to the painting you use as an illustration... what about the answer Jesus gave the rich young ruler regarding having eternal life and entering the Kingdom of God? Where is the line drawn between following the Commandments then and now and in following Jesus physically at that time?
  • Milionea Toluao on Mexico’s President “Vicente Fox” = 666?Hi Tim, Forgot to mention the meaning of the Mark, 666. 6 = STEAL 6 = KILL 6 = DESTROY John 10:10; “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” God bless ??
  • Milionea Toluao on Mexico’s President “Vicente Fox” = 666?Hi Tim, Well, actually you don't have to use gematria to figure out the number 666. It only makes it complicated. John said, “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” ??Revelation? ?13:18? ?NIV?? "This calls for wisdom." only God gives wisdom and that's by applying his living words Into your lives and seeking the truth... Worldly wisdom is not the same as In the spiritual wisdom. Jesus said to 'Nicodemus' “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again. ” ??John? ?3:3? ?NIV??. "Insight" is spiritual knowledge that you gain through your seeking the truth in his living words... "ask and it shell be given" One day, I was fasting and studying the scriptures on AntiChrist in my room on the bed, suddenly, it came to me, it gave me insight to a particular number relates to the President Obama, so I wrote it down, and the number is 44 as in 44th President. So right away, I wanted to find out how many letters are in Obama's full name, so I count the letters of his full name: "BARACK HUSSIEN OBAMA" 18 letters counted. The Lord gave me more insights and said, divide it in three, which I did. 18/3 = 6-6-6. I was in shock, but there was more that the Lord was showing me and said, Multiply the number 44 x 1000yrs. I recalled in the scriptures, Satan was put away for a thousand years. So, I calculated the numbers and it came out: "44,000" and the Lord said to me again, divide 44,000 to 66 in which I did, 44,000/66 = 666. At that moment I was in a big shock! I said, PRAISE THE LORD!!! From than on, I was seeing things more clearly then ever before! I started reading the scriptures more everyday and more insights in different parts of the Bible, Old and New Testament. I shared this with my church but they were cautious optimistic about the future and wasn't to sure about president Obama being the AntiChrist... but the Lord said me, do not worry you have knowledge and insights on the matter. I shared this also to a believer on his YouTube page, in 2011. I also posted a video on my YouTube page, about President Obama and The World TradeCenter." It's not well put together, I'll probably do a remake... Put together: 44 = 44th Fake President Of United State of America = AntiChrist 1000yrs. = Satan put away for a thousand year = Dragon = Beast = Muslim 66 = Bible = the Truth to expose the Liar, the AntiChrist," Barack Hussien Obama." Note : John 8:44; “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” ?? Have you notice the number of verse? 44 PRAISE THE LORD!!! God bless
  • Milionea Toluao on Will Elijah Know Who He Is?Hi Tim, No, you're not seeing it in a spiritual perspective.... what I'm saying is, a man who is born again is in the Spirit of Elijah. You're right about "Mal 3:4-5 telling us it's a prophet(man)." Now, what man today has that characteristics of Mal 3:4-5, one that is not afraid to speak-up, what is true... Your earlier question was, " Will Elijah Know Who He is?" But, the question to you, Will You Know Who He Is? Elijah is already here... God bless
  • Tim McHyde on Will Elijah Know Who He Is?You're missing key related verses that contradict what you quoted, such as Mal 3:4-5 telling us it's a prophet (man) not a "spirit".
  • Milionea Toluao on Will Elijah Know Who He Is?Elijah has already come: “And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come.” ??Matthew? ?11:14? ?NIV??. Today, there are many who have the spirit of Elijah... John the Baptist was example of Elijah in the spirit, that's why Jesus said,"And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come." Today, you see believers moving in the Spirit of Elijah everyday around world... That is why Jesus said to his disciples: "You are my witnesses"(Acts 1:8). “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”” The Holy Spirit power! Is the same Spirit of Elijah...etc. God bless ??
  • Susie Q on Will Elijah Know Who He Is?Yes, Elijah is a public servant. G-d speaks to him, albeit a bit obliquely, mentioning that they are best friends, that he has a special job for him, that the AC is in pursuit, until poor "Elijah" thinks he's going mad. There's mysterious fires going up all around and lots of inexplicable accidents happening to Elijah's detractors. Suddenly, things begin to make sense, like why Elijah arrives mid-Seder, he's a bit of a late comer, but loves a party and a few glasses of wine.
  • Susie Q on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?As many have said, the sackcloth represents repentance and mourning. Also, their down-to-earth nature (of Elijah, anyway). Also, choice may not come into it, being a prophet is not especially renumerative for a Witness. They are not well-liked or supported.
  • Susie Q on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?I think John has the closest take on it. Except it's Cherub/Candlestick/Wild OliveTree/Prophetess/Priestess/Joshua/Michael/Elijah/Female Witness and Cherub/Candlestick/OliveTree/Zerubabbel/Prince David of Ezekiel/Moses /Male Witness...G-d is amazing!
  • Milionea Toluao on Jesus Said Obama Was The Antichrist: NotWe need to remember, it was Jesus who saw Satan fall from Heaven and not anyone else on earth have seen it. Jesus made it clear, that he's from above and not of the earth. No Men of the earth can see heavenly things unless it is granted by The Father. I believe this could be a metaphor to something symbolic on earth that will take place somewhere in our time. Example: Heaven could mean on earth in symbolic tearms: Government at the highest order, the White House...etc. Satan = Deceiver,Lier,Murder,Theif and Destroyer...etc. All this is in a Person's character, who's agenda is an Abomination. The AntiChrist could be someone with these qualities to infiltrate not the worldly nations, but the Christian Nation, America. Why, because it's the greatest Nation on earth today, the highest above all nations on earth. Because, Jesus Christ is the cornerstone to our foundation and He reign over it. This is the only two nations that believe in the Living GOD strongly. America = Kingdom = Christian Nation Israel = Kingdom = Jewish Nation God bless
  • Nando.W on Paul — The False Apostle?Hello to all. I have encountered this Idea of Paul being a false Apostle for quite some time. As I visited this idea with brothers in Christ I came to understand that Paul may have not been so much of a false Apostle, as he may have an over- zealous believer. I agree with many of you stating good points regarding the things he did and said. These seemed to be well "in" and at times "out" of harmony with the other disciples teachings including Christ. The reason I say "over-zealous," is because how many of us today, including professed Christians today who state to follow Paul's teaching don't even adhere his words at all. I will give one example: I once attended a Pentecostal church which tends to be very charismatic. There were times were I felt that there was so much chaos when it came to " speaking in tongues." I mean! it seams like there were so many people feeling lead to utter words of which there was no interpretation and far beyond the instruction of " one ,two, or three" at a time, as Paul states in Corinthians. This to me; is one prime example of how we believe that we are so much in the Spirit that it leads us to "over zealous paths" of worships that are NOT biblical. I believe that there is nothing that the other 12 apostles spoke about or did that leads us to even bring such accusations upon them. Conversely, this brings me to think that Paul was not per say false; but more so, zealous about his conversion. I see Paul in scripture confronting Peter about his Hypocrisy when it came to the Gentiles. No where do I see Peter or any disciple rebuking Paul.
  • Milionea Toluao on Daniel 9:27 Explained: Who Makes Which Covenant?Hi Tim, The answer is simple, it's referring to the Anointed One who happened to be Jesus Christ(Yeshua). "He will confirm a covenant with many for one seven." This passage is referring to Jesus Christ Ministry with his Disciples, bringing with them the New Covenant. This is also the fulfillment of Jeremiah 31:31-34; ““The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them, ” declares the Lord. “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more. " In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. ”” This also refer Jesus Christ Ministry. The Disciples at the time were with Jesus in the temple, while he was ministering in the temple court. The Pharisee didn't like this at all, they wanted to kill him... To them it was an Abomination. This led Jesus Christ to the Cross, his finished work. John 19:28-30; “Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” JESUS CHRIST COMPLETED THE 31/2yrs. Now, it was the disciples to complete the other half(31/2yrs.)of the seven years and to wait for the promise gift in Jerusalem.(Acts 1:4-5,8). This is also, the fulfillment of Daniel 12:11-12; ““From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.” Now brother Tim, first step, add these two numbers... 1290+1335 = 2625 Now, divide the total number to 31/2yrs(3.5)...2625/3.5 = 750 Now, put these number in order that fits into the scriptures. Starting with years and days. 7years and 50days. Seven = Complete(Jesus) Fifty = in Greek, refer to Pentecost(Acts 1:8) PRAISE THE LORD!!! GOD BLESS ?? ?? ??
  • Ben McClure on Paul — The False Apostle?Joseph, Thank you, for pointing out the "Exclusive Nature" fact that just like the New World Order believers, both Christianity and the New World Order want, believe and hope that only 144,000 humans will be Saved! This will be the "Seed" group that a new earth and new heaven will be built from according to both groups! So, the Love that those supposedly feel for their fellow man is both false and being a hypocrite! I guess your number is either drawn in the greatest lottery of all time or your just out of luck! 6 billion dead "Past" + 6 billion alive "Currently" + 6 billion future "Possible" = 18 billion + that will get a losing lottery ticket! Odds 1 in 18 billion roughly! Is it any wonder most people dont even try or care, they feel that just about 99 percent of all humanity NEVER had a chance due to God's exclusive and very limited predefined membership! G Thanks Ben - One of the damned
  • Brian Jaynes on Paul — The False Apostle?"He certainly can keep His Book written by the hand of man inspired by His Holy Spirit." While I certainly believe God "could" keep the bible free from error I don't believe he has chosen to exercise such control. If he had indeed prevented error in scripture through his divine power then there would be no need for the several warnings contained in scriptures prohibiting man from changing/adding to or taking away from it under pain of punishment.
  • Charles B Vance on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?John 6:4 has been a source of controversy for a long time. In the 1800's a Dr Lant Carpenter wrote a book "Harmony of the Gospels" explaining why the ministry of Jesus was about one year. He and others believed that John 6:4 is spurious, breaks the narrative and must be out of place. Others have said that P66 is the oldest fragment of John and it contains John 6:4 however recently other scholars have said that P66 may not be as old as first believed https://larryhurtado.wordpress.com/2016/06/23/orsinis-recent-dating-of-p66-p75/ and in fact may be from the 4th century not the 3rd century. Any 4th century Greek manuscript is suspect due to the corruption of Roman universalism. To believe that John 6:4 is accurate poses serious questions not the least of which is that Jesus never went up for this so called Passover making Him a sinner and not the true Messiah. Michael Rood goes into these issues in depth in the Jonah Code https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAKgRyYfeko
  • Tim McHyde on Paul — The False Apostle?Malomo, Apostle just means "sent one," same idea as a traveling evangelist. Eph 4:11 says some are gifted in that way and some self-proclaim themselves this and others have churches christen them so. But unlike the 14 apostles I mentioned, these apostles are not sent by Jesus personally, and empowered the way he did with those having full authority over all disease and demons.
  • stamp on Paul — The False Apostle?You mean four blind men. The Matthew account has two blind men.
  • stamp on Paul — The False Apostle?Donald, we also know little of the historical Jesus and often need to resort to other methods to fill in the gaps. Your point however is correct. Paul states his mission in 2nd Timothy 1:8-11. In verse 8 he speaks of the testimony of the Lord as in evidence. Had Christ not risen there would be no evidence. In vs 9 we see we're called with a holy calling, not according to our works but according to His purpose and grace. In vs 10 it's as you say, that Paul saw the revelation as being the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ. He goes on to say in vs 11 that he was 'Appointed' a preacher, an apostle and a teacher of these things. It was also appointed for him to suffer. I do believe that he knew the historical Jesus better than we if simply do to the reasoning that people informed him of things which we don't know. His mission however was to reveal the risen Christ.
  • malomo michael on Paul — The False Apostle?Hello Tim You say there are 14 Apostles as recorded by the bible, I believe. What about the millions of Apostles in today's world? I have all the confidence that you will accurately comment on this, for my benefit and that of other readers.
  • Jimmy Coates on Paul — The False Apostle?Studying through the book of Acts, I came across this issue and studied it out. And I came up with at least 10 proofs that Paul was a true Apostle you can read here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/144swY7BaCMq9alGoB64SNhKZNrcD_r8R9IF_49NYXfQ/edit?usp=drivesdk To sum it up, I found that the only people to question his Apostleship were Gnostic heretics; no orthodox Church father ever questioned Paul's status as a true Apostle of Christ.
  • Joseph Geevarghese Vaidhyan on Paul — The False Apostle?Contradictions (if any) are there to filter the most righteous & devoted followers from all others who claim to be believers. 144000 is a very small number compared to the total entire world population (dead + living + yet to come).

  • Tim McHyde on Paul — The False Apostle?Tammy, what's interesting is that just as there were not really 12 but 13 tribes of Israel (because Joseph split into Ephraim and Manasseh) that Paul gives us a 13th apostle. So you can ask the same thing, which twelve names will be on the 12 tribes? There are many lists of the tribes found in the Bible, not one identical in its contents and sequence to another. See more on my Tribe of Dan missing from the 144,000 article
  • Mark on Paul — The False Apostle?I think Paul was a very tortured Christian. The fact that he had persecuted Christians up to his conversion must have weighed on him even though he knew he was saved and forgiven. His letters to all the churches seem urgent. At times even harsh. Just like you can spoil a child by withholding discipline, Paul never held back on disciplining those in the churches who needed to hear it. I think the Apostle Peter said many had a hard time understanding Paul's writing and would even twist some of what he wrote to say what they wanted it to say. I agree with you, John and Larry. Some of it just says what it means and means what it says and salvation is so simple it stumbles so many. I think all the contradictions are very minor and do not change the message or intent of the Bible. The Bible was written by humans inspired by God, not actually written by Him. Moses broke the only known hand written instructions by God that later disappeared with the along with the Ark of the Covenant. But if God had faith these human writers would convey His Word to us then why shouldn't we?
  • Tammy on Paul — The False Apostle?In Rev. 22:14 there is only space for twelve names, which apostle's names will be placed on the foundations? Whenever someone questions Paul, I think of this verse. I have looked it up in several commentaries to no avail.
  • Pere on Paul — The False Apostle?Paul gave the test of false prophet in Gal1:8-9 "if any of us or an angel from Heaven preach another gospel not like the one we preach, let him be condemned to hell's which gospel did Paul preached.The gospel o the Kingdom of God which was introduced by Jesus in John3:5. We need to be born again in water and holy spirits speaking in tongues to enter the KoG.
  • Stephen on Paul — The False Apostle?Larry, Thank you for your post. I needed to hear this so much because I have fallen back into trying to clean my own self up! It doesn't work!! The reminder about what Paul was all about is helping me get back to God's grace and let Him clean me up! Thank you. I there a better way to phrase this? I don’t post things very often. Stephen
  • Tim McHyde on Paul — The False Apostle?Larry, yes, Paul's ministry is as indisputable as the earth not being flat =). People will dispute anything...
  • Larry on Paul — The False Apostle?Tim, Many accept Paul's writings as "inspired," yet don't have a clue why God had him write them. The reason they don't understand is because what he wrote can only be understood by those who have the Spirit of God teaching them. 1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. Paul was called by God to be a living example of the gospel of the grace of God (the only method and means of salvation). Until the day Paul was "saved", "born again", "converted", "regenerated" (however you want to say it) he was as dead as a hammer and hell bound. And so is every other soul that has been born physically into this world, but has never been brought up from the grave of spiritual death by the Spirit of the Living God. When Jesus said: "I am the resurrection and the life" he meant just that. When a lost soul comes to Jesus Christ in true repentance, resurrection happens right then! Tragically many souls that are religious and much informed about Jesus have no idea of what I'm talking about. Their problem is simple, they've never come to him! Oh yes, they can tell you all about what he did, but they've never taken the time to come to him in repentance and faith. John 6: 37 All that the Father gives me SHALL COME TO ME; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out. Repentance involves rejecting, turning away from, renouncing and repudiating what one has been trusting in. Then and only then is a lost soul a true candidate for eternal salvation. At the point of repentance the gospel of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ will be presented to the lost soul. According to Scripture, the soul (whosoever) that comes to Christ and tells him that he or she wants to be saved by him will be saved Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. The entity that Satan stole which prevents true repentance and holds the person of the world in it's grip is one's own fleshly self. Trusting in one's self is so instinctive, so natural and so easy! Conversely, turning loose of the manipulative ego that rules the lost soul of Adam cannot be done easily. A leap of faith is required to escape it's merciless tyranny. According to Jesus one must renounce intellectualism (especially religious intellectualism) at every level, and become as a little child in order to be born again. Paul with his great intellect had to find that out the hard way. Once he was saved he spent the rest of his life learning how to not revert back to trusting in his own fleshly wisdom. Philippians 3: 3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have NO CONFIDENCE IN THE FLESH. Adam's offspring, according to Jesus and Paul, is universally "dead in trespasses and sins" and "cannot" escape it's terminal condition by will power, by wit, genius, religion or any other fleshly means (Matthew 8:22, Ephesians 2:1, Colossians 1:13 and 2:13). The same resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead is our only recourse. True Christians are those that "have been" raised up into the heavenly realm where they co-exist and co-operate with the Lord...by faith! They have been saved by God's grace and for the rest of their lives they will live by God's grace. In God's everlasting kingdom grace rules! No one has reason to boast about anything but the loving grace of God that raised them up to sit with Him in the heavenly realm. They have no righteousness of their own and never will have. Ephesians 2: 8, 9 and 10. In the kingdom of God the mighty workings of His grace continues to show us His transcendent love, wisdom and resurrection power. It is all beyond us! His ways are so much higher than what we think we know. Ephesians 2: 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. The world that we were once a part of has it all wrong! Paul discovered and wrote about what Jesus meant when he said: the one that loses his life finds it. The Lord showed him that God's strength is found and made perfect in human weakness. And to become a fool is how one becomes wise. The thief that was crucified next to Jesus sinned against God right up until he repented. Likewise Paul blasphemed and persecuted the church of God right up until the time that he met and acknowledged Jesus as Lord. In both instances, at the very moment they believed they were translated by the Spirit of God "out of darkness" and into Christ. From that day forward Paul knew that in Christ's death on the cross his old life had been killed and that from then on he was no longer in bondage to Adam's race. He knew he had truly passed from death unto life...that he had been translated out of darkness into light. He knew that his deceitful, sinful, fleshly wisdom had been crossed out by Jesus' crucifixion. He knew that he no longer lived...but Christ lived in him. Galatians 2:20. Among other things, the cross of Christ is a statement from God to the human race: I repudiate you in your fallen, fleshly state! Nevertheless I have provided for you the only way of escape. My way crosses you and your fleshly wisdom out. No one can be saved through fleshly means. You are sin and will remain so until you accept my way! John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: NO Man comes unto the Father, but by me. Isn't it wonderful to realize that heaven will not be polluted and poisoned by the likes of us? 1 Corinthians 1: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30 But OF HIM are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31 That, according as it is written, He that glories, let him glory in the Lord. Salvation is OF GOD. Not OF FLESH! 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are OF GOD, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. Paul, speaking of those who resisted him and his message, said this: Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. So Tim, in light of what we've observed from the word of God, I'd say that Paul's ministry is absolutely indispensable, wouldn't you? In His amazing grace, Larry
  • Talbert Chisum on Paul — The False Apostle?Hey Tim, I have to comment on this one. Paul was highly educated. He never spoke against Torah Law. He taught and kept it his whole life. He did invent some new terminology. The Law of Sin, The Law of Sin and Death, The Law of the Spirit, The Law of Faith, The Law of Righteousness, are terms he invented to explain his understanding of the Gospel. As an Ex Pharisee, Paul also spoke against the Oral Law and Traditions (The Mishna) which caused the Jews to stumble. Just as the Messiah had taught, you only have to keep the original law not all the added regulations. You have to keep track of which law Paul is talking about. That's why he is hard to understand. Example; "all things are lawful" = "under Greek law all thing were lawful". Even Peter said he was afraid weak minded people would read Paul and think Paul was teaching against Torah Law. 2 Peter 3:15-17 Messiah Yeshua paid our entrance fee. Baptism was our induction ceremony. Now, we agree to live by the rules of the club, not for salvation but because we believe it is the best and correct way to live. Or do you think murder is ok? Deuteronomy 13:1-5 details a false prophet. One who follows after false gods and teaches against the Torah Law, even if his visions come to pass. Messiah Yeshua said in Matthew 5:19 those teaching against Torah Law will be least in the Kingdom. But those who teach and practice them will be called great! Acts 15 applies to new gentile converts. Then, verse 21, they were to go to synagogue and learn the law of Moses. The New Covenant is the Torah Law written on our hearts so that we can keep them. Jeremiah 31:33 & Heb 8:8-12. The Israelites didn't want to keep them. We are given the Holy Spirit to write them on our hearts. Ezekiel 36:26-27 again describes the New Covenant. The spirit will cause us to desire to walk in His statutes. Being in the New Covenant means we desire to do Torah Law. Psalm 40:8, Isaiah 51:7, Torah Law is freedom, a blessing, how we love God, how we love our fellow man. (multiple scriptures!) It is not hard to keep or hard to understand. Murder, Adultery, Theft, Covet, Sabbath, Idols. What's so hard? Not wanting to keep them makes them hard. Those who say they know Him and do not keep the Commandments is a liar. 1 John 2:4 The best on-line ministry to clearly explain the true doctrines of the Messiah, Paul and the entire Bible is www.119ministries.com They have a wonderful series of videos called the Pauline Paradox. You will love them. Of course this is all just my opinion.
  • Tim McHyde on Paul — The False Apostle?Lots of "apostles" in the NT, but only 14 "apostles sent by Jesus" to be found: The original twelve then Mattias and Paul = 14.
  • B. on Paul — The False Apostle?Actually, Paul knew Jesus pretty well, as Jesus appeared to him on more than one occasion. A living relationship carries more weight than a knowledge of the 'historical' Jesus. Just some thoughts....
  • Ian on Paul — The False Apostle?How many apostles were there? Aside from Judas, were there 12 or 13 apostles? Was Matthias also an apostle? Just wondering...
  • Tim McHyde on Paul — The False Apostle?John, well said. When it comes down to the real message of the Bible, the inconsistencies and contradictions don't matter. But they do a good job of tripping up atheists as you were.
  • Tim McHyde on Paul — The False Apostle?Erv, No one has kept Torah since 70AD and Jesus said of the Pharisees before that that even they did not keep the law (John 7:19).
  • Tim McHyde on Paul — The False Apostle?Ray, Many would disagree with you on contradictions not existing. But my question is, would it be so terrible if a Scribe miscopied something and created a contradiction in the Bible? It's human error. Doesn't change the main messages of the Bible, so why deny contradictions exist when so many can be pointed to easily?
  • Tim McHyde on Paul — The False Apostle?Mikhael, If they are not the same account, that would mean he had identical conversations with two different blind men. It was unusual for someone to call him "Son of David," but both did? And Jesus asks "what do you want me to do for you?" nowhere else, again, not a common phrase of his. So, yes, your theory is possible, but is it probable or the best answer? I think it's more probable Luke and Mark remembered the same incident in different locations. This trips people up who want to defend a perfect Bible, but our faith is not based on a perfectly transmitted Bible. It's based on faith in God and his will being good, so that we follow it to please him and others. But if you want to argue around and solve every contradiction, then go for it. I'm focusing on the message that the contradictions don't affect, yes? =)
  • John on Paul — The False Apostle?I was an atheist for 20+ years of my life. I set out to disprove the Bible. I was going to find all the contradictions and inconsistencies and prove once and for all that this was all just a bunch of hogwash. What I discovered after many years of reading and studying and searching was that the contradictions and inconsistencies were not in what the bible said but what people "try" to make it say. I had to let go of all the stories and things I had heard as a child and allow the Bible to say what it would say. Nothing more and nothing less. And I can say without a doubt that Paul was most assuredly a man inspired by God. If Paul is seen as anti-Torah it is because he followed Christ's lead. The religious leaders of that day had Christ crucified because they saw him as a heretic. So Paul was in good company.
  • mikhael on Paul — The False Apostle?its possible He healed a blind man on the way in and on the way out. We are commanded to keep the Torah as a way of life but its our faith that saves us
  • Andrew Pell on Paul — The False Apostle?Paul interpreted his own thoughts on Christ and Christianity. I don't necessary agree with the Paul view of Christ
  • Marilyn on Paul — The False Apostle?Hi Tim, Interesting how you have pointed people to come to their own conclusion re Paul, which is commendable. Who/what is a false prophet. This term can only come from someone who recognizes a true prophet. It would be crazy if the Pope or any religious leader described himself as being a false prophet. Why not? Because they really believe they are called of God. But are they, or have they had a false calling? I am sure Paul was convinced that he had a true calling, but did he? How many professing Christians today have experienced a born again experience? Are they truly called by the One True God? Are they deceived? These are hard questions even for those who are truly called, begotten and have received the true spirit of God. When Elijah comes will he be believed and recognized as the Elijah to come? He might be quite young, or quite old, he might be bald or have a thick head of hair. He might have blue or brown eyes, freckles or have a tan, but we know that he will warn, live and teach torah and he will preach Christ as well as many other things - possibly some that might seem unbelievable. Paul preached religious rhetoric, and endless religious arguments but did he actually teach what God/Christ/David/Prophets and apostles taught? We can work out whether Paul was a deceived religious person by knowing what Christ taught right from the first line in Genesis till his physical death and resurrection. This is also how we can work out whether a person is a false prophet or not - and even ask ourselves "Am I truly called by the only true God and His son the Messiah, Lord of Abraham, Isaac and Joseph, who was murdered/died for us and is now seated in honor on the right hand of God our Father in Heaven, and coming as King to rule righteously in Jerusalem?" It is a check worth making for all Christians......
  • Richard Sparks on Paul — The False Apostle?I believe that the God we serve who has Created All Things and His Word 110% there are many mystries in the Bible we in our finite wisdom cannot understand. We are called to step out in faith and believe. For me the more I believe the more wisdom is given to me. I have learned to take every word to be true . We cannot take and pick what we want to believe. God in His omni powerful Ways is quite capable of keeping every single word that He wanted in and every word He didnt want in there out. If He is capable of Creation alone He certainly can keep His Book written by the hand of man inspired by His Holy Spirit.
  • Erv on Paul — The False Apostle?I often wondered about Paul's message until I read that his gospel was given to him by Jesus. Also, Joseph Prince, and Andrew Womack, if I understand them correctly, point out that no one has ever been able to keep the law except Jesus. Jesus came to earth to save us all, and he did not come to condemn us. Jesus is the sacrifice that saves believers forever as opposed to each years sacrifice that covers sin for a year and has to be repeated. Which brings up a question. Is anyone currently performing annual sin offerings?
  • Donald B Swenson on Paul — The False Apostle?Tim: My issue with Paul is that he really didn't know the historical Yeshua. He seems unaware that the Gospel of Yeshua was the Kingdom of Yahweh (YHWH)...the Father! Paul focuses mostly on the Yeshua (the person) who was glorified (after his death on the cross). This Yeshua is different from the historical (living) Yeshua. The living/historical Yeshua was an Aramaic Jew who was baptised by his cousin, John, and then was given his Gospel via the Holy Spirit (directly from YHWH...the Father). He then went out to proclaim this message called THE KINGDOM OF GOD! D
  • Ray on Paul — The False Apostle?No where is the Bible a contradiction maybe we have to understand the context and the exact Greek words for the New Testament writers. The examples you gave is the count from where Luke, and John are telling their story just different point of views.
  • Tim McHyde on Scott Clarke Prophecy Video Theories DebunkedJeff, Whoops you say "Jesus was never harpazo'd" so he can't be the manchild (Rev 12:5)? I think you missed a couple verses which fit the definition of harpazo (Rapture, Take, Snatch, Force, Pull, Pluck, Catch):
    Acts 1:9-11 — 9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. 10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
    So, yes, according to Luke, Jesus does fit the manchild because he was harpazo'ed/"taken." He is also the only one who will "rule all nations with an iron scepter" (Rev 12:5=Ps 2:8-9).
  • jeff feezle on Scott Clarke Prophecy Video Theories DebunkedYou're 100% wrong about the Man-Child being Christ. The Man Child is the body of Christ: the Believers. If you look at Rev 12:5, it says the child (uncapitalized) was 'caught up' or snatched up or caught away. The Greek word here is harpazo, which is what modern evangelicals called 'raptured.' Jesus was never raptured. He was never snatched away, either. Scripture says the Raptured Ones will return to rule as kings and priests in the millennial reign with an iron rod/scepture, so scripture still matches. 1 Thess 5:9 For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, says the Believers will be spared God's wrath. That's pre-trib, not post tribulation. There are no instances where the faithful were EVER punished by God, so there's no way they would last to be tortured during the Tribulation. Besides, the Tribulation process is for the Jews as double punishment for their apostasy. The Believers will already have been gone, and the Woman in Rev 12 (Israel) has to flee her homeland to escape persecution by satan/NWO 3.5 years into the Tribulation. The reason Israel is the Mother of the Believers, is because of her reluctance to accept Christ, during His life, this opportunity 'conceived' the body of Christ/the Believers at Pentecost, and the 'birth' of the Believers is when they become the Bride of Christ.

  • Tim McHyde on “Pray that your flight not be…on the Sabbath day”?Hey Sue, Yeah I love this insight when I got it from Benjamin Baruch early in my studies. Glad it's helping. Well, I'd be curious to see if you could back up the idea that first century Jews lumped both 7th day Sabbath and the feast days under the heading "a Sabbath." I mean I know they are all "These are my MOEDIM/feasts" but I don't think it's true they are all sabbaths or referred to in that way. I seem to remember Nehemia talking about this on Karaite Korner once that the only holy day like a sabbath with no work at all (rather than a restriction on only "servile work") is Yom Kippur. Also is travel restricted on any other feast day than Yom Kippur? The focus of the passage is travel obstacles. The weekly Sabbath is known for that, other moedim, not so much. Anyway, for these reasons, I've never been confused by what "Sabbath day" refers to in Mt 24.
  • Tim McHyde on Two New Planets X and Y – End Time Significance?Sounds like you've been listening to Michael Rood? If you read Rev 6 in the full context of the 1st trumpet through 4th trumpet you'll see it's all about astronomical and atmospheric disturbances and impacts on earth having to do with a "star" Wormwood. A nuclear war does not explain the entire sky moving like a scroll or people running to the mountains (to avoid tsunamis from the rocks impacting the oceans). Read http://escapeallthesethings.com/category/planet-x/ for more on all this.
  • S. Yoder on Two New Planets X and Y – End Time Significance?I just wanted to comment on this wormwood article. I am not familiar with the issue you talk about as wormwood. I have read where you connect it to Rev. 6:12-17. I personally believe that this Rev. scripture is describing a nuclear war exchange in the world. It certainly does not describe a so-called blood moons prophecy. I do not subscribe to the blood moons prophecy theory at all. One has to read that into the scriptures to believe it. What do you think about my believing Rev. 6:12-17 describing a nuclear bomb exchange? The greek word for earthquake here means something that causes an earthquake other than by natural means. It is known that even underground nuke tests do cause earthquakes.
  • SueW on “Pray that your flight not be…on the Sabbath day”?Tim, thank you for clearing up what was for me some "difficult words of Jesus". The idea that it will be on a wintery sabbath day that the abomination of desolation is revealed makes perfect sense. Running for your life (as in a Tsunami approaching) will be the only way if you've procrastinated until then after hearing Elijah's warning. My only question: is there anything written that indicates whether it's a weekly sabbath or an annual sabbath?

  • kris on The Gap/Delay in the Seventy Weeks Before the (Entire) 70th WeekI have read numerous books on the subject as well as the Bible itself, all in their entirety and it is also my, strong, belief that the 70th week of Daniel is yet to occur. I believe we are experiencing the birth pains Christ foretold in Matthew 24:8 and more prophesy detailing the Tribulation Jesus revealed to John in Revelation as well as the Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24 . Now looking back in the Old Testament, which is full of end times prophesy and the coming of the Messiah we can look at Isaiah 53 and Zechariah 12:9-11 and we can confidently conclude that in 30 AD after Christ's crucifixion the clock stops at 69 weeks and Romans 11:25 gives us a great clue and refers to this period in the phrase "that blindness in part has happened to Israel" or the "paused week" which leads us into the "times of the Gentiles" which will not end until all the Gentiles, our Lord God Jehovah wills to be saved, has come in. Then Romans 11:26 informs us that all of Israel would then saved...which has accepted Christ as the Son of God. So the clock will start ticking again after the "times of the Gentiles" has been completed to the Fathers satisfaction. One must under stand the parable of the fig tree and learn and look the the signs of the times. We can also give thanks and glorification, through prayer, to The Lord our God through His Son Jesus Christ that believers in Christ will be spared His wrath and demonic persecution from our adversary and his fallen demonic angels by reading 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and 1 Thessalonians 5:9. I hope this sheds some light on this prophesy as it requires much more reading, understanding and meditation, through prayer, to understand it as fully as we as imperfect beings can. AMEN

  • Kary on Dallas Sniper: “The End Is Coming” – Is This Violence an End Time Sign?thank you for your reply. Do you also have any thoughts about some prophesying that Obama may use martial law to suspend the election? Sorry if I ask too much. May our God continue to bless and use you!
  • Tim McHyde on Dallas Sniper: “The End Is Coming” – Is This Violence an End Time Sign?Kary, thank you for reading. Well, the truth is there are many nations that fit SOME aspects of the prophecy of Babylon. However, going by SOME is not how you identify the ONE prophecy is identifying. China does not have a mother nation like America as Jeremiah requires. China is not the Eagle nation (America's national symbol) as Daniel 8 describes with the lion with eagle wings that get plucked. China is not allied with the lion nation (England's nation symbol). Finally, China is not the nation the Antichrist needs knocked out so he can come to power because it is keeping it back as Revelation 17 depicts the 10 rulers dealing with.
  • Kary on Dallas Sniper: “The End Is Coming” – Is This Violence an End Time Sign?Dear Tim, I have enjoyed your website very much. What I enjoy about your sharing is that it is always focuses back on Christ and with grace and encouragement... unlike most of the other stuff online that causes confusion and division. I was hoping to ask you a question about an article you wrote, "60 Reasons Why America Is Mystery Babylon (Not Iraq, Mecca, Rome, etc)" As a Chinese who spent most of her life in China/ the U.S., I personally see all the characters (Except #1,#56 and #60) being much more prominent in China. And it also fits the description of the killing of the saints + mixing church and politics together. I can expand each on its own much but I am just wondering what your view on it would be? 🙂 Thanks and peace be with you brother.
  • Mike on America’s Fall: Why Does “Nobody” Buy the Merchants’ Goods “Anymore” After?Tim, I once thought that way until I learn how to see with spiritual eyes. Rev. 17:5And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. First, this is a mystery, which means hidden. Hidden from who? Carnal minded men. 25At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.kjv 1cor.2:6-8 talks about spiritual wisdom and how it reveal True understanding. That being said, spiritually this woman is guilty of spiritual adultry. She joins herself to the beast--antichrist. This says that she has rejected her spiritual husband for another. She is a great harlot! She is drunken with blood of all the prophets and the saints. She's that great city where our Lord was crucified. Jesus said to Jersalem that all of the blood of the prophets are in her. Even the blood of Jesus is on Jerusalem. The Bridegroom voice was heard there. Jeremiah 16 explains how Israel was adorned as a queen the wife of God. She forsook all that and played the Harlot. This is a hard saying to many Christians today because they fail to understanding this. Israel as a whole does not accept Christ as the Messiah. She will instead join with a false Messiah the antichrist. She rejected Christ when He walked among her and they crucified Him. The purpose of the 70 weeks of Daniel is to bring Israel to the knowledge of the true Christ. See the reason for the 70 weeks. They are determined upon Daniels people--the Jews. The job of the two witnesses is to minister to the Jews about Christ. Christians are gone to the wedding supper at this time. The great Harlot is Israel, the great city.

  • william on Is “Prophet” Tom Deckard a True or False Prophet?Ephesians 4: 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
  • Neil Gellibrand on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?Determining the Length of Jesus' Ministry The first part of Jesus' ministry began with John baptizing him in the waters of the Jordan river. On emerging from the water, Jesus visibly received the "Spirit of God" (Matthew 3:16) , and a voice from heaven was heard to proclaim: "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:17, Mark 1:11). Significantly, this proclamation fulfilled the "righteousness" that Jesus had first spoken of to John the Baptist (Matthew 3:15). Jesus was then immediately driven by the Spirit, into the wilderness where he remained for forty days (Mark 1:12-13). The next time that John the Baptist sees Jesus is upon his return from, the being forty days in the wilderness, whereupon the Baptist says, "Behold the Lamb of God" (John 1:29). With this declaration the Baptist reveals that Jesus has been selected by God to be the Passover Sacrifice, which must be chosen on Nisan 10, and kept till Nisan 14, the day of preparation for the feast. When all of the preparations have been made during the fourteenth, then in the evening, the sacrificial lamb must be killed (See Exodus 12). Jesus' baptism had to occur on the tenth of Nisan, the first month of the year, for the passover selection, to be acceptable. The Spirit of God had then driven Jesus into the wilderness for forty days, which meant that both the first month and second month passover dates for that year were past, before he returned. The passover lamb must be kept till the fourteenth of Nisan, thus Jesus' ministry would of necessity continue till the following year, with him being killed in the evening, at the end of the fourteenth day of the first month of that year. The full length of Jesus' ministry, from baptism to ascension, was thus about one Hebrew calendar year for the first part, plus another forty days for the second part. The lamb must be: "a male of the first year." (Exodus 12:5). Jesus was first declared to be the lamb of God, by John the Baptist, at the beginning of the year, thus also complying with the first year requirement. Neil Gellibrand 20160929
