  • Tim McHyde on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?Falling, I have it, too. Next time you see him, ask him why he does not align Jesus' ministry in the 69th week with a Sabbath year as all the 70 weeks are aligned with which Jesus confirmed when declared a Sabbath year at the synagogue at Nazareth? He's off by a year or two because of this error.
  • Fallingwaters on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?Michael Rood says He died April 28th 28 CE I have the Chronological Gospels written by him.
  • NASI on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Who is the Prince? Ok lets see this logically... YESHUA kept the ENTIRE law and was sinless. He kept the Passover with his disciples, as we all know, in the New Testament. The Prince is instructed by God to keep the Passover, and he eats bread made with leaven (Ezekiel 45:21). But Jesus kept the Passover... why would God need to remind him to keep the Torah? On top of that, the prince is instructed not to oppress the people by taking their land (Ezekiel 46:18). Does Jesus have an oppressive nature that God must warn against? I'm sincerely confused about this one. Some might argue that Jesus has spiritual sons, and other deep scholars who have read the Nag Hammadi might argue that He will come back and have children. (Whether the Nag Hammadi is inspired or not is another topic, but I believe every responsible researcher of truth should read ALL texts for themselves before judging. You wouldn't like a judge in a courtroom who didn't examine all the evidence before making a decision, would you? Likewise, we as the children of God should be constant truth seekers and we shouldn't pass judgment on anything without weighing the evidence for ourselves. I wonder if this prince is the same one spoken of in the Nag H. book titled: The Teachings of Silvanus. In there it talks about the exalted one which translates over to NASI in Hebrew, the same word used in Ezekiel for the prince! It mentions that one of the reasons that Jesus died was to humble him. I wonder if we’re just over thinking this and it is simply Yeshua... But it is better to question than to blindly follow the herd, which is why I think highly of anyone here who has left a comment. You guys are all amazing thinkers and I'm glad you all exist in an era full of Christians who never question anything. Some Christians have never even read through their entire Bibles once. You guys are simply amazing... Let's stick to the inspired word of God now. In order to further dissect this matter, I'll stick to the Bible from now on, because we can all agree that is inspired. I'll be using the jps tanakh along with the KJV and YLT translations as they are the purest in my opinion. We will be using Reflective Justification to prove that scripture matches with scripture and verse with verse. (Reflective Justification- when one verse justifies, unveils, and clarifies the meaning of another verse in scripture.) Micah 5:2 (JPS) “But thou, Beth-lehem Ephrathah, Which art little to be among the thousands of Judah, Out of thee shall one come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel; Whose goings forth are from of old, from ancient days.” So as we can see, Yeshua is called the Ancient of Days by the text in Micah 5:2. Next let’s examine another verse. John 5:22 (KJV) “But the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son.” So as we can see the Father judges no one at all. Yeshua is the one on the judgment seat. Let’s take a look at the physical description of the risen Yeshua in the Bible now. Revelation 1:14 (KJV) “His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;” Now let’s take a look at the physical description of the Ancient of Days in Daniel. Daniel 7:9-10 (JPS) “I beheld Till thrones were placed, And one that was ancient of days did sit: His raiment was as white snow, And the hair of his head like pure wool; His throne was fiery flames, and the wheels thereof burning fire. A fiery stream issued And came forth from before him; thousand thousands ministered unto him, And ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him; The judgement was set, And the books were open.” Doesn’t sound like the great white throne judgement to me since his throne has fiery flames which is orange, not white. And remember that the father judges no one but commits all judgement to the son. Let’s now look at the only clear description of God the Father in the New Testament. (I won’t go into the old testament for the sake of brevity.) Revelation 4:3 (KJV) “And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald” The sardine stone is red in color and jasper gives off the same quality. Later in revelation it speaks of Jesus taking the scroll from the Father, but remember still that the Father judges no one. The description of the Father doesn’t match the description of the Ancient of Days. But the description of the risen Jesus matches it perfectly! Revelation 5:5-6 (KJV) “And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” Now lets examine a promise of Jesus in revelation… Revelation 3:21 (KJV) “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father on his throne.” As we can see the word used here is SINGULAR, not plural… Now lets go back to Daniel. Daniel 7:13 (JPS) “I saw in the night visions, And, behold, there came with the clouds of heaven One like unto a song of man, And he came even to the ancient of days, And he was brought near before Him. And there was given him dominion, And glory, and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations, and languages Should serve him; His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away and his Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” It doesn’t say that this person is worshipped, but that he is given servants and the ability to rule as the promise of Yeshua in Revealtion 3:21 stated! But lets go further to prove this point. Ezekiel 46:16-18 (JPS) ‘Thus saith the Lord God: If the prince give a gift unto any of his sons, it is his inheritance, it shall belong to his sons; it is their possession by inheritance. But if he give of his inheritance a gift to one of his servants, it shall be his to the year of liberty; then it shall return to the prince; but as for his inheritance, it shall be for his sons. Moreover the prince shall not take of the people’s inheritance, to thrust them wrongfully out of their possession; he shall give inheritance to his sons out of his own possession; that My people be not scattered every man from his possession.’ As we can see here the prince has servants and it needs to be warned not to do something wrong. That doesn’t apply to Yeshua, he is completely sinless and would never cause someone undue harm, God wouldn’t need to warn him against evil. Yet this prince has servants. Let’s continue further down this rabbit hole…. 1st Corinthians 2:7 (YLT) “which no one of the rulers of this age did know, for if they had known, the Lord of glory they would not have crucified.;” Why would the devil crucify Christ if it would destroy his works but to further clarify that this isn’t speaking of human rulers lets continue with reflective justification of scripture. The rulers didn’t know that they were helping to save man-kind by killing Christ. Ephesians 6:12 (YLT) “because we have not the wrestling with blood and flesh, but with the principalities, with the authorities, with the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, with the spiritual things of the evil in the heavenly places;” This proves that Jesus caught Satan and the world rulers of darkness in heavenly places off guard. But the prince who was prophesied of in Ezekiel and Daniel was what they were expecting, instead they Crucified Christ because they didn’t understand the scripture. As the scripture says in Corinthians, they wouldn’t have killed Christ if they knew what they were doing. They were tricked because they were expecting the prince, not the King!” The Hebrew word for King is Melech but the word for prince isn’t! The Word for Prince is Nagid/Nasi! Let us continue going further down this rabbit hole that leads to the prince.” Daniel 8:25 (JPS) “And through his cunning he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand’ and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and in time of security shall he destroy many; he shall also stand up against the prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. And the vision of the evenings and mornings which hath been told is true; but thou, shut thou up the vision; for it belongeth to many days to come.” Revelation 17: 4 KJV “These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” HMMMMM…. Yeshua is called King of Kings, lets continue to examine this further and he will overcome the armies of the beast… Now lets go back to the old testament…. Daniel 11:22 JPS “And the arms of the flood shall be swept away from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.” This verse is speaking about the anti-christ and not Antiochus because the verse next chapter is the final one in daniel and Daniel is told that it concerns the time of the end! The prince fails against an army of oncoming invaders but Yeshua doesn’t. It seems to me that the Prince of the Covenant isn’t the King of the Covenant! They are different! The principalties didn’t know the king was coming, if they had, they wouldn’t have crucified Him. Who could have expected that the I am would go so far as to wrap himself in flesh and dwell among us. Let’s go even further down the rabbit hole towards the prince… Revelation 19: 11-16 (NKJV) “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God." As we can see this description matches the risen Jesus and the ancient of days in Daniel, the father judges no one as stated in john as well. Let us continue “And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp two edged sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” As we can see He treads the winepress, this will be important to a point about the prince later. Just bare with me a little bit longer…. Isaiah 63: 1-4 “Who is this that cometh from Edom, With crimsoned garments from Bozrah? This that is glorious in his apparel, Stately in the greatness of his strength?—‘I that speak in victory, might to save.’—Wherefore is thine apparel red, and They garments like his that treadeth in the winevat?’ I have trodden the winepress alone, And of the peoples there was no man with Me; Yea, I trod them in Mine anger, And trampled them in My fury; And their lifeblood dashed against My garments, And I have stained all My raiment.” As we can see the speaker is shocked that someone else has stained clothes like him. The speaker is Jesus who treads the winepress and as we read in the earlier verse his clothes were stained with blood. But who is this other person Yeshua sees coming---the prince. Let’s take a closer look now… Jeremiah 30:21 (JPS) “And their prince shall be of themselves, And their ruler shall proceed from the midst of them; And I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto Me; For who is he that hath pledged his heart to approach unto Me?” said the LORD. Now who is the LORD(I am) lets take a look. Wasn’t Jesus with God at the beginning? Why would he make a pledge? John 8:58 KJV “Jesus said to them, “I assure you: before Abraham was, I am.” He said this in many other places, including when the soldiers came to arrest Him in the garden. If Jesus is the I am and the Father judges no one then who is this prince in Jeremiah who pledged his heart to approach Yeshua? Jesus always had the attention of the Father as we will prove now… John 11: 42 KJV “And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which standby I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.” Yeshua always had the attention of the Father. He is the only one to judge, not the Father. He matches the description of the Ancient of days and is even called so in the JPS which is the most jewish translation of the old testament and the closest one to the original meaning in English. He said that he would give someone coming the throne, the way his father did for him. This person would have servants but wouldn’t be worshipped. The rulers of darkness would not have crucified him if they knew what they were doing. It is evident that the prince is not the king and the king is not the prince. Messiah simply means anointed, David, Saul, Samuel, and others were called Messiah. It appears that Messiah the prince is not Messiah the King! They are different people! It appears that the King of Kings is not the Prince of Princes, and that each are mentioned differently by both God, scripture, and plain logic. There is more evidence I have but I feel that this has gone on long enough. I believe that the man child is the prince because Jesus is in heaven at the time of the writing, Revelation is a book of prophecy and it wouldn’t speak of the past. The prince is on earth and the devil is looking for him, he seems to be the weak link in Bible prophecy. He isn’t The Father, Son, or Holy Spirit yet he is important which makes him an easy target for Satan. There are more verses to prove my point with reflective justification but I believe this to be good enough for now, there is already sufficient evidence to prove that Jesus is not the prince. Even lost books like the Ascension of Isaiah mentions that Jesus has a chosen one, things are about to get interesting, seeing how this is the true Jubilee year as well. Whoever this guy is, he is out there waiting to be revealed, the prince of the millennium. ??
  • JoAnn on How Can Planet X Be Revelation’s star Wormwood?Are you saying that because I don't speak in tongues I'm not saved.
  • Tim McHyde on “Pray that your flight not be…on the Sabbath day”?All the commandments were created for man, not man created for the commandments. But stating this does not mean every command of God is universal, for mankind. The Sabbath so far has only been given to one nation: ancient Israel. In the Millennium under the New Covenant (Jer 31:31) it will be finally given to all nations (Isa 66:23). Until then, it's a grave error to take on commands that were never given to you as it tends to make you lose focus off the ones that were given to you and to all, just as Acts 15 demonstrates so well, as does the modern Hebrew Roots Movement with its lack of love (John 13:35).
  • patrick on “Pray that your flight not be…on the Sabbath day”?Let me quote a good teacher, as he made reference to the old covenant, with a new perspective and understanding of Christ's impact on the "New Covenant" Mark 2:27 Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath". I feel that the Sabbath should be kept, but clearly, keeping the Sabbath does not separate the wheat from the chaff.
  • Tim McHyde on Should You See/Read the Shack?Christian orthodox "doctrine" is drawn mostly on tradition, not truth, not directly Scripture-only. That's why there's 40,000 divergent, warring denominations. The yardstick therefore is really the Word of God (Lk 21:8), not what a religion invented 300 years after Christ says.
  • mckay144 on Should You See/Read the Shack?Although I agree that you will not get cooties or anything like that from reading/watching The Shack, there are certain essentials of the Christian faith that one should keep in mind. Discernment is based on criteria, and is not emotionally based. A person with discernment makes judgement calls, much like the way a referee discerns whether a play is in-bounds or out-of-bounds. There are rules, lines painted on the playing field, and specific guidelines to follow. In Christianity, we call those rules the doctrines of orthodoxy. You need to focus on orthodoxy, because that is the yardstick that your discernment works with. Discernment is meaningless without it.
  • Matt on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?The prince here also offers scarifices for his sins Jesus was the altimate sacrifice this hast to be another king priest that comes in the order of Christ just as Christ came in the order of Melchizedek. Neither Christ's or Melchizedeks priesthood ends. At the end of an age there is a change in the priesthood and that priest must offer his own sacrifices according to the Bible. Don't get me wrong Jesus Christ's priesthood is neverending. But this also explains why they start sacrificing in the mellinial temple. The Male Child or Man Child spoke of in the Bible is not Christ it is the prince in Ezekiel 44-46 and other place talking about the 1,000 year kingdom. When the Bible talks about the woman taken to the wilderness this is the true church not marry like most people think, from among her A Male Child/King Priest will come to rule in the mellinial kingdom, once again Jesus is still over this Male Child, because Christ is at the right hand of the father.

  • John on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?They will die in Jerusalem, IIRC the good book doesnt limit their ministry to the city
  • Mark W on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?Whatever they might be wearing, let's not forget PLACE. They will necessarily need to be in Jerusalem, right? Doesn't that narrow things down a bit?
  • Mark W on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?Sounds like Chris (Christopher, "bearing Christ") Angel, performing miraculous works on the Las Vegas strip daily, but with NO reference to Yah or the Way. In some ways I see some truth and practicality to what you describe here. In the end, I think the true believers with eyes to see and ears to hear, who "keep the testimony of Yahushua and His commandments", will KNOW the difference, whatever the garb. In the same way Y'hovah will make a way for us to the Land when it is time, He will also put it on our hearts and in our minds when the true witness comes along. It certainly isn't Chris, unless, perhaps, he calls fire down from heaven. And in that case, he would be the AC.
  • Mark W on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?Who among us can argue that True Love is at times its own life-giving sacrifice? John 14:15 "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” Galatians 5:14 "The entire Law is fulfilled in a single decree: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” John 15:12-14 "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I loved you. 13Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. 14You are My friends if you do what I command you.…" Now if we can love ourselves the way Y'hovah loves us, loving others as ourselves takes on new meaning doesn't it? It is not as easy as it sounds. If we can be ready on a moment's notice to lay down our lives even for the sake of a complete stranger, and also be ready to sacrifice ourselves for sake of the small things short of getting snuffed out (which are even harder) -- we are fulfilling the Law, when we DO those things. Take it from my disabled wife's caregiver.
  • Mark W on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?Mat. 9:13 -- "I desire mercy, not sacrifice." What does it mean if we sacrifice all and have not love?
  • Tim McHyde on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?Rose, I understand your skepticism from being burnt before by many number theories out there. Your argument is not valid that because it has an end time application it can't have another one. If there are 62 weeks between Jesus' ministry start and when he was "cut off" then it works on another level you prefer to discount, but with no good reason given...
  • Rose White on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?the sixty two weeks are clearly the End Time as the lead up to the abomination of desolation. Claiming otehrwise is jus another instance of peopel finding a number they like an building all manner of myth and false doctrine about it . That in itself is a sign of these End Times!
  • Paul from Australia on Scott Clarke Prophecy Video Theories DebunkedI've been following both Scott Clarke and Tim for many years. Neither of them have ever said "Christ WILL return on this date....." Both guys love The Lord and are studying His word. To understand the end times takes a lot of studying. I have been studying this for over 20 years and now believe that ALL who accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour are people who's names are in the "Book of Life" and will eventually get to heaven. However, only those who have "OVERCOME" will "Escape all these things". It's probably about 10-15 per cent who will be taken after the anti-Christ is revealed. (Pre-tribulation rapture) for the WORTHY. The remaining Christians (who are worldly and are not on fire for God) will be left to go through the tribulation. Many of them understand what has happened and will be beheaded for their faith and "Overcome" during the first 1260 days. It took me many years of studying and praying for me to understand this. Some of you will understand this, some will not. Some will people will use their pre-determined ideas to try and "de-bunk" this. Study, pray and be open to what God is going to do. Time is short, Christ WILL return soon. We are NOT in darkness, so should be prepared like the 5 x wise virgins. If you're not on fire for God, you need to re-prioritise your life. I honestly don't care if Jesus returns pre - mid or post. It doesn't matter, as long as we are following Him 100 per cent. How many people have you shared Jesus with this week?
  • John on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?I forgot to mention the the leader that will be raised up is, "For who is like God?" Wow! Elijah IS a witness, and is Moses likewise! He and his BROTHER, Aaron or fellow servant Elisha helps and plays a crucial role! At the end of revelation the angel tells john not to worship him, but to worship God. He also tells him that he is of his brethren, the prophets... the more you loom into the connections and the biblical activities of the 2, the more it weaves together! God is good!
  • John on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?The 2 witnesses are Michael and Gabriel, as they are the 2 annointed ones that stand before God. They are the 2 olive trees, and 2 lampstands. This fits Zechariah perfectly, and confirms that Jesus is the golden lampstick who will give his 7 spirits to them. They will incarnate as humans as a final test, i think it isnt beyond the realm of satan to make the proper accusatons to get this to happen. Indeed, it falls in line with Zechariah because Jesus ALSO came in the flesh and would complete the picture. They must also be martyred for their witness. Finally, dont assume they wont be known before the ministry. Its says on Jeremiah 51, IIRC, that the Lord will raise up an appointed leader to lead the remnant in a second exodus to the land promised to our forefathers. Hence why they will END their journey in the city spiritually called, "Sodom." Oh look, yet another identifying connection. Hallelujah!
  • Alex Duran on New Jerusalem – No Gentile Gate? + Rom 11 Olive Tree – Israel?What will the New Gates of Jerusalem be made of?
  • John on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Jesus was sinless, and still is. It cant be Him.
  • Isaac on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?And you are correct, keeping the Torah isn't a salvation issue. It's an obedience issue. He made that clear also in Matt chapter .
  • Isaac on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?You are using an English dictionary to translate something written in Hebrew and Greek. I teach and speak Hebrew. Unless you understand Hebrew idioms, the language is just as hard as English to translate properly. Jesus historically kept the sabbath, the feast, holy days, and the Torah. The old and new Covenant Are in regards to sacrifice, not keeping the Torah. The Jews made the Torah burdensome and added to it. You can't mis interpret his sermon on the mount. Matt chap 5. God never said in the Old Testament that no one could heal in the sabbath. That was something that the Jews added. You are not even rightly dividing the word in the scriptures you quote. Your 2 scripture you quote in Matt and Mark are simply things incorrectly added to the Torah that Christ denounced. There is nothing biblically to suggest or even began to prove that Christ or his disciples did not keep the Sabbath the feasts or the holy days. And world history proves the exact opposite. That he indeed kept the Torah. And I don't know where your 70 A.D. is coming from, but again world history proves the Sabbath was kept in till around 300 A.D.
  • Tim McHyde on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?Isaac, there's not a single verse stating Jesus kept Torah. Not even Sabbath. But I can show you two verses where he said he did not have to keep Sabbath as the Lord of it (Mk 2:27-29=Mt 12:7-8) and he worked just as God worked on Sabbath (John 5:17-18) (!!!). If he wanted his followers to follow Moses' Law he would not have made such statements and instead would have said "Keep the Torah!" again a statement you will never find amidst all his many statements of what he did want followers to do. The Torah is not "destroyed" because it is prophetic and "all must be fulfilled" (end time prophecy). But did you catch where he said it would go away? So much for it being eternal like you Torah Keepers think if you're keeping something given to someone else who stopped keeping it 2500 years ago. The "least in the kingdom" "these commands" are the ones that follow in Mt 5-7 which tell you how to get great credit/reward for your righteousness unlike the Pharisees. The Torah had NOTHING to do with salvation, greatness or "leastness" in the Kingdom of God. It was about ancient Israel staying in Palestine. Finally, yes of course we can have statues just like good Catholics do who are headed to the Kingdom. If it's a sin that keeps you from the Kingdom, how would anyone know this since 1) most in history have not had a Torah and 2) the Torah's audience is not most anyway, but one dead people called ancient Israel. Look, "keep Torah" if you want (although no one really does so since 70AD) but don't think for a second that 1) Jesus did this as an example for us when not a single verse says he did and 2) Jesus taught this in any of his words. If you take a look at what he really said to do and what he never said you'll be quite surprised where it leads you and what it leads you away from. Peace! Tim
  • Isaac on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?WRONG!!!!!! The scriptures you quoted as a base line for Christ doing away with the Torah is bad interpretation. First of all, Christ kept the Torah. His disciples kept the Torah. The first church kept the Torah for almost 300 years till it was changed during the Christian crusades by Constantine. (History proves that). Christ says in the sermon on the mount..."I've not come to abolish my Torah or the prophets but to show you how to live within it." "Not one jot or tiddle shall pass from my Torah until heaven and earth pass away." "He that teaches otherwise will be the least in my kingdom." MATT:5 (read the whole chapter! Smh) Next topic... So you think Jesus just picked 5 random commands to keep from the 10 commandments huh??? Guess we can worship any graven images and have other gods before him? Lol. Bro get a grip and read the whole chapter and the chapters before and the chapter after the 2 verses you are plucking and doing a bad job of interpreting. I don't need to go further as this has taken enough of my morning. Yours truly, Former AG goer Isaac
  • Tim McHyde on Psalm 83: Not A Middle East War Prophecy?Mary, Jesus said the abomination meant you have to run like hell. If you wait until that "sign" (as you call it), it's now perilously close to the Antichrist total control and you have to now get to Petra on your own rather than with the group that left at the 1335 day mark.

  • Mary on Psalm 83: Not A Middle East War Prophecy?If the abomination is "not really a sign to look for," why did Jesus say it is?
  • nae on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Jesus is so holy that man will insist that will go stag to every event for all eternity? so if it is not ok for first Adam to be alone , then why it is ok for second Adam to be alone? the great Gift God gave man was EVE , to loved and chosen .. and to think his people out such love for Our son of man .. would deny him the right to a help mate ? Did anyone ever think that just maybe the son of David might want maybe one wife ? Maybe that is even one reason he died maybe there was someone in Sheol that he liked maybe he even loved her. that is such a mystery of a man dying for a woman he loved. so you all want to say that Second Adam can't have a second EVE.. that man chose to die to give you life and to bring all men and women..to where he isand what he is .. the Son of David a man by the way, was too holy to love just one woman? he is a man guys ? maybe he was always capable of sin but chose to not sin for our sakes.. to bring back our glory. and God gave man the greatest gift to be chosen and loved by a help mate to have children that cherish him. but man that claims ot Love our redeemer will deny God's right arm and our redeemer that same love ? that greatest gift he gave man ... to have love and a family.. the son of David the older Brother of Solomon is too holy for love? or just that kind of love ? He has to Go stag forever and always, and dance alone with his crowns if he bothers to show up at all. I mean his brother Solomon had thousands and his dad had nearly a thousand wives . but because King David's son , raised by God himself to be our savior . His people love him so very much we will make our King sit with his crown on a throne and dance alone for all time.. yep that sounds like a plan. we can call him King Pope Nope You Can't .
  • larry fields on Paul — The False Apostle?With all due respect, most people miss two statements by Paul. The first one is Romans 2:16 "In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel." The other is 1 Corinthians 15:1 thru 4 "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved,......". Only Paul received the many mysteries he revealed in his epistles, including the mystery of being saved by Faith plus nothing else. God Bless.

  • Tim McHyde on The Gap/Delay in the Seventy Weeks Before the (Entire) 70th WeekGood point, Annette, I should have thought of that myself!
  • Annette on The Gap/Delay in the Seventy Weeks Before the (Entire) 70th WeekAnother thing you can mention when you talk to people who believe this, is the example from Isaiah 61. Jesus read it in the Nazareth synagogue, up until the end of the things He did in His first coming, and the rest are unfulfilled until His second coming, without explaining to the reader that there is a gap.
  • Talmid on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?Excellent article. I wonder if any here are willing to read it.
  • Gary Westermann on Scott Clarke Prophecy Video Theories DebunkedI also came across the Rev 12 astrological event that is supposed to be fulfilled on the 23 September 2017 and not again for 1000's years. But the big thing that they don't see is that the second part would also have to be there - the firey dragon to consume the child!
  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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).
  • Timothy J Clark on Paul — The False Apostle?JOHN 3:16 Got it ?
  • 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
