  • Proctor on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?First of all, your statement that the two witness do not literally have fire coming from their mouth is a total assumption, and one that is observably baseless. When you look at the story of Elijah, fire literally devours the men with their captains, twice. Same with many other stories. There is no basis for the over spiritualization that you and many others remain proponents for. I sincerely believe that this ignorant view of things will cast itself as an unnecessary stumbling block for new believers that will unfortunately lead some astray or will push them away from the truth due to its confusing and uncorroborating storyline. Tim is right. Approaching the book of revelations as some mystical and arcane text that few can understand and is majorly allegorical is counterproductive and unsolicited. Please, reconsider your ways.
  • Proctor on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?There is no reason to believe in this obscure, secretive understanding of Revelations and specifically the two witnesses. If you notice in Rev. 11:4, they are directly linked with Zechariah chapter 4, and this is directly identified as two people, spiritually speaking, Joshua and Zerubbabel. This is garnered from the context of Zechariah. Assuming that they represent two separate groups is not only an assumption, but one that doesn't make sense. In the OT, the cherubims in the temple were made out of Olive tree. It is more likely that the two witnesses are actually angels sent to earth, which fits perfectly with Revelations, Ezekiel and Zechariah. Much more than this supposition that they are some large ambiguous group of people. The only beings that are written to stand by/before the Lord are angels. Also, your reasoning for arguing that the two bodies are really one, and thus two groups, is fallacious. If it is singular in regards to individuals, it is also singular in regards to groups and thus cannot work likewise. Finally, there doesn't seem to be any evidence for your claim that the original word implies a singular understanding. Any sources for this claim?
  • Tim McHyde on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?Lila, yes there are a few figurative passages like you cited in Revelation but don't let that trick you: the book is just as literal as any other book and missing this and approaching it allegorically is the biggest reason the book has been sealed until the 21st century.
  • Prairie on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?Monte Judah believes the book of Hebrews should be torn from your bible.
  • Lila Shamar on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?Revelation is apocalyptic not literal. However these will be real people who are witnessing and that is why Revelation says the number of beheaded witnesses from the Great Tribulation is more than you can count, a number beyond belief. See Revelation 7:9-17 and Revelation 20:4. What I mean by apocalyptic not literal: for instance Revelation 11:5 says fire proceeds from the mouth of the witnesses. Fire does not literally come out of their mouths. All glory must go to God, not man. So, like Elijah, they will call in So Shaddai with the words of their mouths and with Holy Scripture and God Himself will send fire from heaven and consume them. In the same way their earnings and preaching will be in alignment with many of the judgments and plagues of Revelation. That is why the world hates the end time prophets during their ministry. Revelation is also not in chronological order. It is a puzzle. Additionally, the 7 bowls are contained within the seventh trumpet, and the 7 trumpets are contained within the seventh seal. There is an unfolding of time and space. Prophecy is not meant to give us too many clues about the future, otherwise Satan would be able to plan accordingly. Rather prophecy alerts us when matters have just been fulfilled or are reaching fulfillment, at the very doors. For instance at this very moment We may see the king of the South battle the king of the north, but no one knows until it is fulfilled. We should all be in sackcloth for the state of our world and church.
  • Tim McHyde on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?Lila, that is what we would call an figurative or allegorical interpretation of the Two Witnesses and the end time Elijah. But the texts make fine sense literally without allegorizing them.
  • Lila Sharmar on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?The two witnesses are the entire witnessing church and the remnant of the jews who turn to Yeshua. That is why in the original text Greek it says twice their dead body (singular) lies in the streets. Singular, not plural! The translators are lying to you. It is because we are one body in Christ. All over world the Body of Christ of end time saints will witness with amazing powers until they are finally overcome by the "beast" (probably Islam) and beheaded. These are the great masses of people in Revelation who were beheaded for their witness and who serve before the throne of God night and day. For 3 1/2 days their body lies in the streets while the world celebrates. Then they are all captured to heaven and rule with Christ 1000 years. These are the two olive trees which signify Israel and the two lampstands which signify churches. Ephraim and Judah united, the two sticks. This generation is not ready for worthy of the work that will be entrusted to the end time saints. The Spirit of Elijah is in each believer.
  • Mathai Cheriyan Mannucheril on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)I greatly support what you say. I believe the standard for what constitutes a “cult” is if a group is teaching something contrary from the out of the Bible, not contrary to “theology,” (whatever that might be out from the NT that all cults and corruptions). We might follow what Christ said! All most all Christian Churches are in the USA, they kick out the Doctrine of God what is into the New Testament. The New Testament said if you do not abide, by the doctrine of God, that you have not the "God" so you are omitting the almighty God's doctrine. Look almost all US, Christian Churches Ladies are into the Church service: they were not covering to their head. Same time many churches man coming with the hat on their head. Why Preachers and Pastors do not order and not giving Bible classes? The NT said the man should not cover their head? Like the way, "NT" strictly said do not use any ornaments. And does not man and women "sit together" to worship, and not pray. So what is going today? That the Holy Ghost, being said, to address your specific examples with very clear in epistles! The Mormons and Jehovah witness are teaching that Jesus is an angel, and into the Lord supper they are giving water, into the place of wine!. Actually, Jesus, the word is wrong, his name is "Yeshua", and change the word the Holy Ghost as the Holy Spirit not the Son of God. the word Jesus is come out of Nimrod and he is not the meaning the salvation of God. Actually Jesus meaning he is an earthly pig! When you are going church you say thank you, Jesus, and omitting to say thanks to you the Father in heaven This is in direct conflict with one of the central teachings of the Bible, which is why I believe that the Mormons earn the title of “cult”. The Jehovah’s Witnesses also teach that Jesus is not the Son of God. By all means, we should examine all manner of Bible teachings, and when some are found to be in direct conflict with the Bible, we should call that what it is. Today you are worshipping to Jesus and praying to Jesus. Christ said do not have it: he sais pray and worship Father into the Heaven in my name! Today you and your church teaching our God is three in one, and one in the tree? and also Jesus is everything father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. What is it, from where is the New Testament? NT said christ is the son of David while you said Jesus is the almighty God. God said to call and belive the son of David as the son of God while what is going into the churches that all are the cult. From where you brought it into the Christian community?
  • randy on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Wow, what an amazing discussion. It is really on point. So many scholars are confused on these points.
  • Tim McHyde on Sabbath Day/Year Commandments – Six Days/Years of Work/Sowing Required?Fred, Lev 25:22 is an answer to a question about what to eat in the "the sabbath year" (Lev 25:20) not about Jubilee year timeframes obviously since there is no planting in the 50th/8th year in that case unlike the Sabbath year case where you can plant in year 8 after year 7. As for what they do in the Jubilee year, the same answer about a huge(r) bumper crop blessing is the implied answer.
  • Fred Brown on Sabbath Day/Year Commandments – Six Days/Years of Work/Sowing Required?Leviticus 25 v21 states there will be a harvest with triple yield in year 6. Year 7 is a fallow year. v22 commands sowing in year 8 v22 mentions eating from storage (of the 6th year) But.... The Jubilee follows the Sabbath year. That makes the Jubilee the 8th year. The year v22 states is a year of sowing and v11 forbids sowing. BTW I'm not stating there somehow is 9 day extended cycle. I'm just following the wording of the Bible. Likely it's worded that way for ease of explanation, and as a reference to those 3 years. For me the seemingly conflicting verses 11 and 22 are a bigger question than 49 or 50 year Jubilee cycles. What's your view on v11 and v22?
  • Janis on Is “Prophet” Tom Deckard a True or False Prophet?People should be more careful in their research and judgments. Everyone of us will have to give account of everything we did, including how we handled what God brought along. The accusations I’ve read here are taken out of context and half truths. I can understand how people turn this bitter against this prophet. Because this ministry requires much more effort of people that wanna stay around. Mostly in sacrificing our fleshly desires. For instance, we fast at least 2 days a week. For some even that is too much on a long run.. And if you don’t do all you won’t get all the results that you expected, that’s the way God set this up. Eventually they end up frustrated, and if they’re not willing to look at themselves in the spiritual mirror they won’t admit that they didn’t do all they knew to do. Instead they slander the ministry, because of course it’s their fault, not my own.
  • Stephen on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?I dont think it affects Gods word at all. Questioning the accuracy of Gods word undo doubting it only shows our arrogance to think we can judge the accuracy of Gods Word/Work. It also reveals that anyone who thinks that way doesnt actually and literally know Him. Obey Jesus' words and you will know the Truth, be set free, and know God....and you wont question the accuracy of scripture.
  • pradeep ivon on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?Many who have forsaken all are on the right path i trust according to what Jesus has very clearly told- there are no two ways or ambiguity in our Lord? speech as He is the God of order. Choice is ours yes it is difficult to forsake the world and its trappings of emotional & material attachments as the Lord had said after the rich young man left sad as he could not forsake his riches. Perhaps it could be possible to be an average do gooder christian while living with your job, family and all possessions but that cannot be called being a disciple; its tough and more so since the churches of the world do not preach their congregations this clear truth of christianity- after all who would then provide for the upkeep of this organization.
  • Steve Trent on Why Animal Sacrifices? (Not For What Christians Think)One cannot explain the Blessed and Holy Writings/Teachings of the Hebrew Bible with the dreamed/conjured up and worthless writings of Paul, Luke, John or any of the other fictional characters that supposedly wrote the more than worthless New Testimonies. Those mythical writings of the wealthy, heathen and pagan Gentile Roman Piso Family were written after the Roman Emperor Constantine and his motley maurading army murdered the Israelites living in Jerasulem in 67 AD. Those same Romans looted and burned Yahweh's Holy Temple in 70 AD. Constantine, at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD, hired 318 Bishops, Exorcists and Seers to write a new bible for those detestable conquering Romans. Constantine called this new mystery bible the "New Testimonies" and this new "faith and grace only" mystery bible is now known as the "New Testament". The true God of this world was and is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His name is Yahweh. There are no other God besides Yahweh. Yahweh was the same yesterday, today and forever. Yahweh does not change and His Laws/Torah does not change. Anyone that says that Yahweh's Laws/Torah has changed is a liar and the truth is not in him/her. Ezekiel 34, 37; Jeremiah 30 and Hosea 3 plainly and clearly teaches that it is David that will be the King/Messiah/Shepherd/Prince of the coming New Covenant/Paradise/Heaven. Jesus is not mentioned or referred to in the entire Hebrew Bible and with this knowledge Jesus falls flat on his face with absolutely no hope of recovery. I recommend that everyone read: "The Forged Origins of the New Testament". Those that do any research will find that the New Testimonies/New Testament was not written until 331 AD. The New Testament is simply a book of tall tales and fiction that is not worth the paper that it was written on or the ink that it was written with!
  • Tim McHyde on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?FLC, on the contrary, Jesus' recorded words address public and private audiences. Here's an instance where he reminded his disciples they must forsake all (Mt 16:24). Why? It's no easy thing to maintain a life traveling on the road away from home in training. So my point may be better than you first judged it. Nobody today is a disciple of Jesus who must forsake all like the real disciples back then had to. Today just trying to enter the kingdom is hard enough as it requires becoming a God and love-centered person (Mt 7:14) so that very "few" or way less than 1% make it.
  • Tim McHyde on America Falls Before or After Wormwood?Christina, when you know and obey (1Pt 4:17) the Good New of the Kingdom, God guides all to go well (Rom 8:28), even when it does not look like it.
  • Christina on America Falls Before or After Wormwood?Thank you Tim! I had forgotten about that and your interpretation makes perfect sense! Now, the eagle’s nest reaching to the stars..I’ll have to pray on that one. Thanks again and God bless you and your family. I hope all is going well. ????
  • Tim McHyde on America Falls Before or After Wormwood?Christina, Obadiah mentions an eagle and reaching to the stars, but all I have seen is that Edom is part of modern day Jordan. That prophecy is quoted in my book because at face value it tells us Jordan will be wiped out by Israel (Obadiah 17-18)
  • Christina on America Falls Before or After Wormwood?Hi Tim, I hope it’s okay to ask here: Who ( what country) is Obadiah speaking to? Is this America as well? If yes, it says that not one will be left. 🙁 There’s a certain group that says it is. Thanks in advance!
  • FLC on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?What are the false teachings of Vincent?
  • FLC on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?"But don’t forget that the audience of some of his words was not the general public but disciples who left everything and followed him around the countryside." As pointed out by Jude, Jesus spoke to the multitude - not people who were already disciples. Why would Jesus repeat the need to forsake all to people who had already forsaken all? He would, literally, have been preaching to the converted. I don't think your point was lost, it was that your point wasn't a good one.
  • David on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)I absolutely agree with what you say. I believe the standard for what constitutes a “cult” is if a group is teaching something contrary to the Bible, not contrary to “theology” (whatever that might be). That being said, to address your specific examples, the Mormons teach that Jesus is an angel, not the Son of God. This is in direct conflict with one of the central teachings of the Bible, which is why I believe that the Mormons earn the title of “cult”. The Jehovah’s Witnesses also teach that Jesus is not the Son of God. By all means we should examine all manner of Bible teachings, and when some are found to be in direct conflict with the Bible, we should call that what it is.
  • Tonya Lewis on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?Where may I ask do you live. And can you share with me your process?
  • Tonya Lewis on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?Hello, This conversation is just what I needed to see what side I fall on. It doesn't really matter the circumstances I find myself in currently. The question for me is the matter of whether I would forsake all if called to do so, which by the way, I'm starting to believe is the case for all who desire to be disciples of Jesus. As with Abraham obeying God by carrying out the sacrificing of his son Issac, I won't know whether I trust Jesus until I actual follow through. God knows already, but I do not. Thank you searchers of truth for fearless commentary. Please pray that I hear clearly the teachings of Jesus that he spoke through the gospels, that I may be obedient! I pray likewise for you! God bless!
  • Tim McHyde on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?Teresa, yes, I agree the problem is one of "audience:" who were Moses' commands given to, who was his audience? Who do they apply to beyond that? The answer in all cases is only ancient Israel in the land of Canaan until they were exiled. Nobody needs treat a history book of commands given to a long dead people as a law book for them today in the West. To do so leads you into quite a ditch.
  • David j on How Long is the Great Tribulation: 7 years or 3½?I believe Tim is spot on. I was brought up in a Baptist church and for years taught that the rapture occurs before anything then the seven year period. Thank God I met a true friend while I was in Iraq who told me to read the Bible for myself and I did. I don’t know why it is so hard to understand but the rapture is not biblical and yes we will be here for the tribulation. If YHWH is a fair and just God then it’s not even a correct assumption that he would take the church first then Israel especially since in Romans when you read he cut the unfruitful branches off the olive tree and grafted in the wild branches,that’s tells me we are either saved or unsaved hence Gods elect. So this means Jeshua is coming back one more time to get all his faithful at one time not a two part deal and yes Daniel does confirm what Tim is saying. People, quit trying to say its how you interpret the Bible and read what it actually says
  • Teresa on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?Hi Tim..this is a year later ..not sure if you will see this. but maybe someone will....but just wondering the net and found your page and was reading this thread..and what you said about " all the commands in the Bible suddenly apply to you, to whom they were never commanded. " That is the key to the problem right there..you think its was given to some old people that no longer are alive today..but they are...and they are called ISRAEL..GODS chosen people...Go read all of Heb 8. it was the placment at fault not the covenant.but the truth is right here in verse 10 Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: hope this helps..
  • Tim on Paul — The False Apostle?There are several comments on how Luke has different descriptions than what Matthew, Mark, John, etc described. I find it interesting that people refer to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John as the four gospels. Luke came along later as a historian. He never knew Yahusha. Luke is not and never will be one of the gospels any more than the writings of Josephus is one of the gospels.
  • Crystal Marina on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?John, I just read your comment on Vincent. My name is Crystal. I am in the documentary, God Knows Who They Are. I left that ministry almost exactly a year ago. Vincent is not who he portrays himself to be. Vincent has a way of manipulating and brainwashing his followers. He only has a few but it's a cult nonetheless. He believes that we attain salvation by works and not by Christ alone. Any religion that believes in a work based gospel is a false one. I was apart of this group for 4 years. I don't have the space here to tell you about all the abuse and manipulation that Vincent bestows on those that come in contact with him. I have done everything biblically to bring his errors into the light and he wants no correction or accountability. I brought this to him one on one and within the group and so now I have been healing from the false teachings of this man for a year and I am forever grateful that God has graciously saved me from deception. I just warn you to be on high alert when watching videos of Vinny. He is indeed a false teacher. Good works are a result of our conversion they will not save us from the pit of hell. Only the blood of Christ can do that.
  • MI on Is “Prophet” Tom Deckard a True or False Prophet?Becky Thank you for leaving the comment that Tom died. I didn't know!!?? I find it a little odd that there is no mention of that on the Cradle of Hope website. I had no idea he passed away. I bought a few DVD's from that ministry - especially one on fasting that he did. It was very informative and I really appreciated the fact he made that DVD since I had found .... exactly zero videos on the topic up to that point. There are no other ministers teaching on it. Also was interesting to hear the comments / experiences people have had with that ministry. I wanted to go to one of the meetings and it never worked out. Now, I'm glad I didn't go. Thanks to all of you for this additional info on Tom and thanks (of course) to Tim for the meeting place on line to talk about it. 🙂
  • Laura D on Paul — The False Apostle?It appears to me that Paul was born again: but that he also was heretical in a number of teachings. Paul, in particular, was in gross error in his diatribes against women. That could be expanded upon in greater detail. But, suffice it to say that Paul was in gross error in establishing a Roman nun convent "of widows". 1 Timothy 5:9 Let not a widow be taken into the number [the number of a set apart religious group: a RELIGIOUS ORDER] under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man, 10 well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints’ feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work. 11 But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ [Paul required this group to take a VOW OF CELIBACY - that's a NUNNERY; HERETICAL TEACHING that marriage equals "waxing wanton against Christ"], they will marry; 12 having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith [HERETICAL TEACHING that leaving a Roman nunnery where women have vowed celibacy to join a religious order - produces DAMNATION. This is TYPICAL Roman HERESY of the attack of women ensnared in a Roman convent leaving the convent is "waxing wanton" meaning whores against Christ. All of Paul's heretical teaching about women believers descends into the pits of hell in his horrific assault of women leaving a Roman convent to marry being damned. Contrariwise meaning that Paul had a double standard of salvation seen throughout his false heretical teaching about women believers: denying that women are saved by grace - instead teaching a works salvation for women in a heretical double standard. Apparently, men so love his hatefilled abuse of Christian women in telling women to be silent as the law says (bringing Christian women under the law)... that they simply "overlook" his debased heretical formation of a Roman convent nunnery. Paul is heretical in his teaching about women: a Pharisee of the Pharisee who maintained his Pharisaical blindness in his constant heretical abuse of Christian women.) And I, for one, am appalled that Christian men follow his heretical teaching to perpetuate the abuse of Christian women in the body of Christ.) But, I do believe he was saved. And the Holy Spirit kept the record of his letters to show us the infiltration of Roman heresies every time these sinful men made up new commandments in direct disobedience to the Great Commission. Thankfully, John the Beloved refuted Paul on every count in his letters. The Holy Spirit left us a historicity. And never declared Paul in papal infallibility: as Paul established himself as a veritable pope in heresy. Shame on Christian men for following Paul in his abuse of women in the body of Christ.
  • Becky on Is “Prophet” Tom Deckard a True or False Prophet?Hello, My name is Becky. My mother and sister are wrapped up in this prophet. Apparently, this Tom Deckard guy died, but my mom and sister are still following another man named Mark, who still are under this "cult" as I call it. My mother lives in Illinois too. and they go to these quarterly meetings, etc. I'm so worried about my mother and sister. They feel they will be going to an island soon to be "safe". My mother has become a hoarder of foods also. I'm sick to my stomach over all this. all i can think about was Jim Jones and how he killed all those people who followed him years ago. Is he another Jim Jones? All I know to do is to pray they come to the truth of God, not him! And I pray their eyes be opened! Can someone send me more info on this cult, so maybe I can convince my mother and sister to leave?
  • Gary m on How Long is the Great Tribulation: 7 years or 3½?The seven yrs comes from Danile 9 versus 24 to 26 when the Angel Gabriel speaks to Daniel.
  • Obiajulu Echedom on Why God Likes You More Than You ThinkOh! Such a lovely description of our relationship with our heavenly father. Thanks a lot.
  • Tim McHyde on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?Joel, as the one who fielded and reported the question, it was quite educational for me. I think the person who asked was trying to get an edge on how to recognize Elijah and probably were educated more than they thought, as well!
  • Joel on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?Interesting question, but like most questions of similar nature, it's distracting rather than educational. Of more importance would be to be 100% sure of why he is coming, what is his purpose, and so on; as quite clearly spelled out in other posts.
  • Joel on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?That didn't work out as planned, or has there been an adjustment in the prophecy that I wasn't notified about?
  • Tim McHyde on How Long is the Great Tribulation: 7 years or 3½?MM, this common interpretation does not fit the context. Go forward a few chapters to Daniel 11 and you find that a man of flattery, a type of the Antichrist (Antiochus) does a precursor abomination of desolation (Dan 11:31-32). This leaves no doubt Dan 9 is talking about another wicked man, the Antichrist to do it in the end time.
  • Sandra Turner Peters on “Pray that your flight not be…on the Sabbath day”?“”You will see me when I come”
  • MM on How Long is the Great Tribulation: 7 years or 3½?I think the reason people believe it is 7 years is due to Daniel 9:27. They are confusing the "he" with antichrist. This passage says NOTHING about antichrist. The "he" is Yeshua who "strengthens" the covenant. There is nothing in there about a 7 year peace treaty with Israel. Dan 9:27 And he (Yeshua) shall confirm/strengthen the covenant (the new covenant that is now written upon our hearts instead of stone) with many (Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for MANY for the remission of sins.) for ("for" should not have been used, he strengthens the covenant 1 week, NOT FOR 1 week, which stretches until the end of the 70th in our time.) one week: and in the midst of the (70th) week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, (He did, for those who accepted the new covenant he was the final sacrifice) and for (or because of) the overspreading of abominations (continued sacrifices were an abomination to God after Yeshua's final sacrifice) he (Yeshua) shall make (it) (it was added by translators) desolate (Matt 23:38 and Luke 13:35, the temple was left desolate), even until the consummation (end), and that determined (decreed) shall be poured (7 vials) upon the desolate (or those who never accepted his sacrifice).
  • ELIAKIM on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?And the furry garment represents righteousness in Judaism. She wears a fur coat has HaShem ordained it.
  • Raymond S on How Long is the Great Tribulation: 7 years or 3½?Alan Peters.......please give a date for when the two witnesses were already in Jerusalem breathing fire and turning water into blood. I don’t recall that happening. Also please give a date for when the 7 year treaty was signed ( I haven’t seen that occurrence either) since the tribulation CANNOT begin until the treaty is signed.
  • Tim McHyde on Can We Take “The LORD’s Name In Vain” Today?Rob, your reasoning sounds good only as long as you misunderstand God has one personal name (which the commandment refers to) and miss the context that oaths important to daily life were to be sworn only in that name. In context, God's saying don't make an oath by the word Yehovah and not fulfill it. If this sounds like a technicality, you're right and consider the very next commandment with another one: rest on one specific day of the week that was also only revealed to Israel, not Christians. The other is another technicality about no graven image/idol worship, something else revealed to Christians and therefore not required on them. The first four commandments are like that which is why when asked about entering the kingdom requirements, Jesus left out all those and included only the last six (Mt 19:17-19), the only non-technical/ritualistic and universal ethical commands of the ten.
  • Rob Osborne on Can We Take “The LORD’s Name In Vain” Today?I’m sorry, but God has many names. To use any calling out to God in vain/without reverence is wrong. Basic grammar question for everyone: when do you capitalize mom/dad, outside of at the start of a sentence? When you ADDRESS them in speech. Ex: “When are we eating, Dad?” Why capitalize? Because it’s his name (proper noun) in that context. I’m a dad—but that’s not my name...my name is Rob—but my kids don’t call me that; they call me Dad. ...and if my kids said, “Dad!” after some situation—and weren’t meaning to actually call on me—I’d be asking why they were doing it. Frankly, it would be a bit annoying if I am not involved in the situation they are referring to, all the MORE so if they seem to be upset about something, and thought uttering my name was a good idea. You see, Tim, you’re missing the spirit of the 3rd commandment. God does NOT play “technicality chess” up in heaven with our souls. Whatever name we are using for our God, we are NOT to reference Him in vain, but to speak of Him reverently. It’s as simple as that. It really IS. At the very least, ask yourself this: by uttering today’s Christian cultural names for God in vain, are we helping to further the Great Commission or dismiss it?
  • S. Yoder on Brexit: Does This Help Or Hurt Prophecy, Rise of Antichrist?Brexit is not final yet until after the rapture. It is one of the three nations of the ten to leave the revived Roman Empire that will fulfill bible prophecy. The 10 will be 7.
  • Gordon on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Comment on the prince in the book of Ezekiel. The prince in Ezekiel will be as David was chosen by god born like Moses was to fulfill the scripture as it is written. When John fell down to worship the angel in Revelations the angel said don’t worship me worship god i have the testimony of Jesus Christ. The angel basically said to John i am a sinner saved by grace just like you John. The second time John falls down to worship the angel is for the Jews . The angel says don’t worship me i am of the servants the prophets. Now Moses said when he spoke of the Messiah Behold the Lord our god shall raise up a prophet likened unto me hear ye him. Moses was not virgin born nor born without sin. Now an interesting thought when David was 14 years old of the age to deal with god as a man his Bar Mitsva he was anointed by Samuel and told he would be the King of Israel. David didn’t strut around saying i am the King of Israel but waited for god to bring it to pass. He was anointed a second and third time my point is for the entire time he knew who he was. The prince the anointed one the Messiah the one chosen like David like Moses is a man on earth who knows who he is. One more thought Isaiah 53 says when we shall see him there is no beauty we should desire him. Gordon
  • David M Williams on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?I'm late tithe party, but to anyone reading this, when Peter, James and John were on the Mount of Transfiguration, the Father appeared in a cloud and said "This is my Beloved Son, hear Him." Paul's words nor any other Scripture writer will ever reign supreme over the Son of God. Hear His words.
  • Smokinace07 on Already Past 6000 Years Since Adam?As much as I would like to know what year, month and day it really is or how old the earth really is, it’s not possible to calculate. You have to come the realization that Adam and Eve didn’t eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil literally the next day. They were told to be fruitful and multiply. How long after generations of children did they succumb to the calling of the tree and Lucifer’s lies? Unknown. This is why no man will know the day or hour of God’s return. One more point, in the Book of Enoch we’re explained that we are on a 364 day cycle and if it were ever changed it would throw of all the days including the sabbath and holy days. Lucifer has messed up everything because that’s what he does. This is just my opinion tho not to discredit anyone.
  • Tim McHyde on Already Past 6000 Years Since Adam?John, if you think trying to figure out end time prophecy is a waste of time, you might complain to the One who felt it worth giving and preserving down to our time. Would you really like to throw out one quarter of the Bible as not worthy of study and discussion? Do you not know that there is no such thing as a waste of time when every endeavor, even failures, develop our minds and experience? It's OK if you don't want to study these things, but perhaps you can appreciate others who do want to study 100% of God's word, not just 75%?
  • John on Already Past 6000 Years Since Adam?Can any one actually tell me what day it is or what the date is? According to all the Wow factors of time counting, star tracking, and calculating when the end comes, when does the end come? When Jesus returns or the one one thing that everyone might be missing; the deceiving spirit that is called by many names in many books is released for a second or in a sense a third go at the world before the eight day of creation appears. So what day are we all think is the end? The day of rest when the deceiving spirit of many names and all the others are locked up; giving our souls a rest from their interfering? Because that is not the end. Wait almost forgot how about the short time before Jesus' return that the deceiving spirit rules. I am confused by all the wasted time in calculating end times. There is a reason for statements made in regard to such things one is so old it goes back to the book of Enoch. man will mess up time; (So just noticing in my studies that man has skip time twice so for once when going to Julian calendar and again going to the Gregorian calendar and we wont add in the additional days from all the leap years) then Jesus as previously stated, Not even He knows. There is the statement that states to keep the Jubilees? why? Well don't ask me, I just have noticed everything happens on Jubilee years. Noah was on the ark during the jubilee year, the crossing of the Jordan happened the year of 2500. What day are we in again? And if I follow the Word of God in saying love Him with all your heart, soul and mind and teach the Word during all times bedtime, eating, and walking; even tie notes on yourself to remind oneself of the Word and commandments, statutes, and judgments does it matter when Jesus comes or when the eight day arrives? When that day comes If I do all these things; I will stand in front of the congregation and God the Father on the eight day of creation with the High Priest Jesus Christ while he claims me clean or unclean. I hope God has mercy on my spirit. Please stop wasting time calculating time or stars or the end, it will come and those who learn and teach the Word to their sons/daughters manservant/maidservants will have God's mercy. All has been written. As Jesus always said, "Is it not written?" Amen (Let it be So)

  • Obiajulu Echedom on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)Glad to read another beautiful article by you. I think that the root of the 'fear of deception' by 'main stream ' Christian groups and their consequent labeling of others as 'heretic' stems from the fear of Perpetual incarceration in hell fire. Since I read your articles and books on the various resurrections am so relieved. Thanks a lot. Obiajulu.
  • Martha Gregory on Already Past 6000 Years Since Adam?I think a generation is the number of years from father to first son. In our times, that is about 25 years, the age of the father when he "begets" a son. The average is 35-40 years from the early days of Adam until our times. Back then men began to beget at about 100 years of age. (Genesis 5)

  • Mike Anderson on When Elijah Comes, What Will He Be Wearing?Concerning the college education: Years ago in a high school English class, I learned of a pattern in Greek tragedy theater where the protagonist falls from a place of great possibility of greatness, making the fall much more dramatic and engaging than if a person of low prestige went back to living in squalor. The same pattern plays out in Shakespeare's "King Lear." And the same for Jesus--miraculous signs, honored by the magi, a precocious 12-year-old student in the temple, the enthusiastic expectations of his early ministry--and yet he came to a most shameful end according to conventional wisdom. As for John the Baptist, he and others were aware of the promises spoken by Gabriel, yet fell so far from those expectations that even he wan't sure he was fulfilling them. We know less about the origins of Elijah the Tishbite, but it was not uncommon among others used by God to have a "proper" education, only to demonstrate how unimportant it was to their success, such as with Daniel and his companions. When I consider my education, how I was one of two most-honored students from my high school and did quite well in my university studies, people of that era wonder (as I sometimes do) what happened to me, that I have no obvious worldly success, and that perhaps I obliquely speak out against their ethical compromises to cover up my own embarrassment. But really I've been diligently unlearning much of what I had been taught, and my criticisms can have a much broader audience due to my many investigations. As for formal religious education (I have none) I think that would be less advantageous for a prophet, as with Jesus, since its primary function is to accredit the next generation of pastors and teachers, perpetuating the clergy-laity divide and all its compromises. Nowadays you can teach yourself nearly anything without going to class, anyway. Through blogs I learned the difficulties I would have faced had I gone to seminary, that I might be even further behind in life than I am now, so I keep learning and growing without complaining about my station. Who knows when God might decide to use all that training.
  • Ade Adegbulu on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?My family and I have forsaken all for seven years and I realize we are an oddity amongst Christians. Through scriptures I realized that not only did the Lord require His disciples to forsake all He also told them how to have their needs met. He assured them of the loving care of our Father and demonstrated it in His own life. For seven years I have never asked anyone for money, clothing and food. All my bills, including school fees for four children have been paid by the grace of God. He is truly faithful. I am not a pastor and have no recourse to tithes and offerings. My ministry is just about to start and we have no doubt after seven years of living by faith (giving) that He will continue to provide. From what the Lord has told me the apparent inability of christian 'converts' to forsake all has led to a powerless generation. To forsake all and follow Him allows Him to make us fishers of men. The Holy Spirit does a mighty work in the person who has learnt to trust Him. I have learnt more about Jesus by forsaking all and following Him than from books and preaching. It has not been easy but it has become easier to trust Him for miracles and grace to help in our time of need. It is not a popular gospel in the church but if we want to worship and serve God free from the limiting influences of the world (mammon) we must come out from her midst and the way to do so is discipleship as defined by our Master, Jesus. This I believe is the Love Way!
  • LaDon Page on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?This is a good debate I enjoyed reading everyone's opinions. Thank you. But I struggle when anything in bible is considered inaccurate. How do we claim it as God's word if it isn't 100 percent accurate? If we question it's accuracy in any place, aren't we opening up a place for doubt?
  • Tim McHyde on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?Barbara, I agree, me, too. But just because you understand things by studying the whole Bible does not make all the commands in the Bible suddenly apply to you, to whom they were never commanded. No more have you been commanded by God to build an ark than have you been commanded by God to rest on the day the manna did not appear (Ex 16).
  • Barbara Goodhew on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?Well I have to say I totally agree with Isaac. I have had 4 decades of Bible teaching drummed into me from a purely non Hebrew perspective. I started journeying in another direction when being introduced to writers and teachers who understood more about the Hebrew mind. Teachers such as Chuck Missler , Johnathon Cahn and Brad Scott whom most will know understand the end of the book is understood by what is in the front. The Book is written by Hebrews interpret it from that mindset.
  • local guy on Is “Prophet” Tom Deckard a True or False Prophet?nup...no more prophets are coming except the few the Bible mentioned... what is coming is more and more modern day "profits"..like Copeland and benny hinn and joyce myers.. and so on... modern day profits are in the game for the profits....haha..
  • Brenda Perry on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?Hello Tim...I came upon your blog because I am struggling with the whole "torah movement"....I was really struck by your comment "the fog of confusion lift and peace arrive"...in your opening paragraph, because that describes how I'm feeling! I also feel as a believer , that all this confusion is a distraction, and is really just keeping from my relationship with the Lord.... I have tried doing a little research on my own...and no, I am not a bible scholar. I don't feel I always interrupt correctly...I feel confused about alot, just being honest...Alot is the bible is easy to understand, it's very black and white....but alot is not! Anyway, in Matthew 5 verse 17 17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. (ESV)...Just that alone I don't understand, because isn't the Lord saying there, "that He did not come to abolish the Law"?? Just looking for help!......God bless, thank you.

  • Charles Houdyschell on How Long Was Jesus’ Ministry?We are starting a study of Rood's CG for a second time and are getting the push back on John 6:4. We have seen the argument on P66 and how critics of the 70 week theory place it at 200 AD because that puts it prior to Eusebius. When shown it could be later, they say it predates manuscrpit 472 and Nestle-Allunds 28th edition included John 6:4 without qualifications. Are the manuscript earlier than P66 without John 6:4. Clearly the English translation with it can't hold up contextually.
  • HW on Is “Prophet” Tom Deckard a True or False Prophet?My husband (who is mentally ill) was convinced by this group, first to separate our bank accounts, then to file for divorce because I wouldn't join them, abandon his wife of 41 years, 3 sons and 7 grandchildren to save his skin when God pours out his wrath on America. They forbid him to listen to, read or study other teachings, require they attend quarterly meetings in Illinois (while living on social security), mandate that he tithe only to them, ask for additional offerings. This list goes on and on...
  • Tim McHyde on Confused by Hebrew Roots/Torah Keeping?Mab, Acts 15 plainly labels Torah-keeping ("Moses," "circumcision," "the law") for believers a heretical "burden." I can hardly be accused of bias here since I used to ignore or tenuously explain-away Acts 15 just like you do.
  • Tim McHyde on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Gog Magog is two wars, Armageddon (Rev 19=Eze 39) and post-mil revolt (Rev 20=Eze 38). One ends with many months of work (Armageddon) the other they burn up (post-mil revolt).

  • Lisa on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)Satan is not God's equal. He is a created being who has an end, already recorded in Scripture.

  • GIna Fernandez on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Hi Tim, does this mean that there will be animal sacrifices during the millennium? Why, if Jesus is already the perfect sacrifice? Why, if Jesus is reigning during the millennium?
  • NASI on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Who is the Prince PART 2 (CONTINUATION) Luke 24:27 (KJV) “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.” Comment: This too is telling: This reveals that the Psalms are also books of prophecies. I have found many psalms that some have ascribed to David, but Jesus clearly points they are prophetic. I believe that the quotes that sound unlike the character of Christ belong not to David but to the prince. I believe this for many reasons and I will share some examples here but not all because that would take forever. Again, Yeshua showed them the parts concerning himself, which means that there are parts that don’t concern him at all! Why mention this if it isn’t relevant, Christ means what he says and says what he means. Isaiah 28:2-9 (JPS Tanakh 1917) “Behold, the Lord hath a might and strong one, As a storm of hail, a tempest of destruction, As a storm of mighty waters overflowing, That casteth down to the earth with violence.” Comment: If Jesus is the Lord, then who is this mighty and strong one that He has. If Jesus is the King of Kings and King of heaven and earth, Creator that came down in the flesh, then who is this who is mighty and strong but at the same time in subjugation to another. Does the Lord have himself? Isaiah 28: 9 (KJV) “Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:” Comment: Read Isaiah 28:2-9 fully to understand that this is still talking about the Lord’s mighty and strong one. People in Jesus’s time understood scripture better than people of today’s time. Today’s world is filled with distractions, prosperity, and general false teaching including many lazy Christians who don’t read God’s word for themselves. This quotes seems to apply to this time more than the time during Christs and again Christ is subjected to no one. He is the King of Kings. Psalm 45:8 (KJV) “To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves. My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee forever. Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with they glory and majesty. And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Thine ARROWS are sharp in the heart of the KING’S enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.” Comment: Remember the Arrow part, it will be important later. But again as you can clearly see the psalm is stating that this person is not the King. He fights for the King, as the previous verses have stated. Revelation 6: 1-2 (KJV) “And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering and to conquer.” Comment: Now here is the kicker again. Many have ascribed this to the antichrist but again they got the imagery wrong. White horses doesn’t describe something that is evil, god isn’t trying to fool any of use. Imagery in the Bible isn’t made to confuse anyone, man alone complicates things. I take the opinion of Revelation End Time’s youtube channel that this is the end time prophet and prince who is coming to make ready the bride of Christ. Again this rider wheres a stephanos crown, in the original language, not a diadem. The diadem is only worn by the antichrist and Jesus. Jesus wouldn’t give antichrist a crown and this person also has an arrow as one of the psalms concerning him clearly mentions as well! Daniel 11: 22 (KJV) “And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown before him, and shall be broken; yea also the prince of the covenant.” Comment: The original if you read KJV, mentions he shall be broken to pieces. Now let us observe a shadow code that God placed in the Torah. Exodus: 29:17 (KJV) And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards of him, and his legs, and put them unto his pieces, and unto his head. And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a burnt offering unto the LORD: it is a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD. Comment: Another book outside the bible mentions Elijah dying on an altar by the hands of the antichrist but again I am sticking to the Bible for now. It mentions the ram being broken in pieces the same way the prince will be. We know that the Old Testament contained the shadow code and just as Jesus died outside of Jerusalem, the sacrificial lamb in the Torah died outside the camp! But Jesus never died on an alter and he is the lamb of God, not ram. Some have ascribed the two rams symbolizing the ways the two witnesses will die, this can be the case too. I’m only presenting this here as food for thought to the ready reader. Isaiah 42:19-21 (JPS Tankah 1917) “Who is blind, but My Servant? Or deaf, as My messenger that I send? Who is blind as he that is wholehearted, And blind as the Lord’s servant? Seeing many things, thou observes not; Opening the ears, he heareth not.” Comment: Again, this could simply be Jesus… But Jesus was in the temple when he was twelve and he knew who he was. He even called the temple ‘My father’s house.’ Was Jesus ever blind or deaf? Psalms 43:5 (YLT) “What! Bowest thou thyself, O my soul? And what! Art thou troubled within me? Wait for God, for still I confess Him, The salvation of my countenance, and my God!” Comment: Who is up in the throne room with God interceding for humanity? Did Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, ever bow himself to another? Does Jesus need salvation of his countenance, He who made everything, saved everything, and is forever glorified? Think about it! Extra things to chew on…. The Teachings of Silvanus “Know who Christ is, and acquire him as a friend, for he is the true friend. He is also God and teacher. He, being divine, became human for your sake. “He is the one who broke the underworld’s iron bars and bronze bolts. He is the one who attacked and threw down every arrogant tyrant, the one who loosened the bonds with which he was being held, and brought up the poor from the abyss and the mourners from the underworld, the one who humbled the arrogant powers, the one who, through humility, put arrogance to shame, the one who through weakness, threw down the strong and the boaster, the one who through his shame, scorned what is thought to be honorable, that humility for God’s sake might be highly exalted, the one who put on humanity and is God, the divine Word, the one who always bears patiently with humanity, and wished to instill humility in THE EXALTED ONE.” Comment: The Ascension of Isaiah also mentioned the Devil and principalities didn’t know Jesus was coming and it mentions that the Lord has a chosen one. It also states that Jesus would trample death and another book titled The Gospel of Nicedemous (My favorite extra biblical book but I might have misspelled Nicedemous- I know you guys will forgive me…) states that’s what happened exactly. I was going to include the quotes but this comment is already super long. Some of these books even go on to name some of the principalities such as Ornias, Sasabek, Berotth, Yobel, Athoth, and many other demons who have ruled the world in the shadows, but I don’t have time to get into it now. The Gospel of Nicedemous also states that Beelzebub and Satan are actually different beings, which upon my further research I would have to agree with, but I can’t prove it here because this comment again has gone far enough already. I also have more verses that I believe are about the prince, but again, I’ll leave it here for now. BTW Tim, I know this is off topic but I just wanted to ask you a quick question that is too tough for me to answer. (2nd Samuel 24:1) (KJV) “And again the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, ‘Go, number Israel and Judah” 1st Chronicles 21:1 (KJV) “And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.” “SO WHO DID IT? GOD or SATAN? My theory is that the he in Samuel 24:1 is implying Satan, but as it reads, it seems like God. Again it could be a translation error or grammatically off… I have other theories that are even further fetched too… What are your thoughts Tim? Thanks so much…
  • NASI on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Who is the Prince? PART 2 Revelation 1:1 (KJV) “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John.” COMMENT: This passage clearly tells us none of the prophecies from this sentence on has happened yet. The man child cannot be Christ or this verse is a lie, John clearly states that it must shortly come to pass, not that it has happened already. Revelation 2: 26 (KJV) “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: that one will rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.” Comment: Sounds familiar doesn’t it. Almost like the man child of revelation twelve. It is interesting to note that the scripture doesn’t say that Christ hands the man-child the rod of iron but that he will rule them with one. Many make this out to be a company of people, but again, the verb is SINGULAR not plural. Daniel 9:26 (KJV) “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.” Comment: Many in the church have speculated that the prince who is to come is the antichrist. I, on the other hand, must disagree. The Bible isn’t out to confuse the people of God. It has used bad imagery to describe bad people and good imagery to describe good people. For example: it describes satan as a red dragon. It describes the one we call antichrist as a beast. A prince is never a bad connotation unless God says the prince is wicked as in the case of Ezekiel where God call out against the wicked prince of Israel. I also believe this is why the prince doesn’t keep the Passover, because if he were in a purely Jewish family he would keep it. But the prince in Ezekiel needs to be reminded. The Romans along with some turks raided and destroyed Jerusalem but it was mainly the Romans as history tells us. Hebrews 11:6 (YLT) “And apart from faith it is impossible to please well, for it behoveth him who is coming to God to believe that He is, and to those seeking Him He becometh a rewarder.” Comment: Did Paul perhaps know something we didn’t? It seems his friend Silvanus, who is mentioned throughout the New Testament did. The verb again is SINGULAR and the statement is definite. As we will see later…. Jeremiah 30:21 (JPS Tanakh 1917) “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 pledge his heart To approach Me? Saith the Lord. Comment: Again we see that the man child is taken up to God and his throne in Revelation. Also it mentions the prince shall be of themselves, but as we already know-the church are grafted in branches into Israel. Can it mean not only by blood but perhaps this verse means he will be human. Not God the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. As the promise of Yeshua states multiple times in Revelation. This also reveals the mind of the prince, he is praying to see God and approach him! (Refer to my old comment…) Hosea 3:4 (KJV) “And the children of Israel shall sit solitary many days without king, and without prince, and without sacrifice, and without pillar, and without ephod or teraphim; afterward shall the children of Israel return and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and shall come trembling unto the Lord and to His goodness in the end of days.” Comment: Again we see that the offices of King and Prince are separate and different in the eyes of God. Yeshua is the King and what is being described here almost sounds like what is going to be reinstated in Ezekiel. 1 John 4:9 (KJV) “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” Comment: In many places it mentions Jesus as the only begotten. Why? Why would Bible writers go so far as to mention this. I think I know why, but again, I’m just theorizing here… The man child is called the man child for a reason. God doesn’t state things without plan or purpose. I personally believe, I could be wrong, that the man child is just a man who God adopts like a son, which is why he is called the man child. He isn’t the only begotten son, he is a man who has become like a child in God’s eyes, a very special human… Which would explain why he is so close to the temple and why he is given so much land in Ezekiel! Revelation 12:5 (KJV) “And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.” Comment: It sounds like the prince got what he wanted and its interesting to note that it says God and to his throne. Now why separate that let’s take a look at the next verse. 1st Kings 8:27 (KJV) “But will God indeed dwell on earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain You, how much less this house which I have built!” Comment: This verse is telling. It reveals that there is more than one heaven- as the new testament and many books outside the Bible, like the Ascension of Isaiah states. But it also reveals that God the Father, The one on the giant white throne at the ending of Revelation, is incredibly large. And we know that Jesus sits on a throne on the right hand of the father. So the man child must be taken there. Again, revelation said it must come to pass, not that it has happened already. Revelation 12 says the man child was soon to have control of the nations and the promise of Yeshua before said he would. So when the man child goes to heaven he still doesn’t have authority but he may have the rod because why would John mention it, He must have seen the rod in the revelation vision. Revelation 12: 13 (KJV) “And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who had given birth to the man.” Comment: Interesting that the original manuscript says man but child is italicized meaning, it’s excluded! The first part of the verse has child but the second part doesn’t. Some have speculated that the man child must be a child at the time when he sees God. I disagree. The verse here reveals that the woman had given birth to the man and in Ezekiel we know that he has sons. This is one reason it can’t be King David. How can David have more children if we are like the angels and don’t give or take in marriage? Plus David keep the whole law except in the case of Uriah and Bathesheba. Moses came before David so David would have celebrated the Passover… the prince needs to be told to take the Passover. David and Jesus both always took the Passover and during the holidays they would have eaten unleavened bread as all Jews still do to this day. Again, King David is disqualified based upon these reasons and probably more if I apply my noggin to it.
  • John on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Is there any substantial evidence of that though, I could swear Gog and Magog were a tribulation thing? Also, the end of the Ezekiel battle is many months of work for the Israelites, while Revelations 20:8,9 say that Gog/Magog are 'devoured' with fire.
  • Tim McHyde on Why Animal Sacrifices? (Not For What Christians Think)Joseph, by "no flesh" I only meant there will be no "flesh-only"/physical people like today. Certainly you didn't think I missed that both angels and glorified Jesus manifested convincing flesh around flesh people?
  • stephen on Michael Rood Comes for an Unexpected VisitMichael Rood - why I don’t follow him or his teachings. Sorry I just can't follow him or his information because of the following 1. Michael Rood claims to be a Levite. Living as a Torah observant Levite, although he is not Jewish, nor of the Levitical lineage. He claims to be a Levite but refuses to provide DNA for testing to prove he is Jewish, or from a Cohen line. BTW there are no records of Rood converting to Judaism nor are there any Yeshivas or Rabbinical schools that awarded him this title. IOW there is not one disinterested third party to support any of his claims. 2. Rood claims to perform Levitical rituals in Israel but according to Torah he is too old to be conducting these rituals but he still claims he did. He also stated that he illegally broke into a holy site in Jerusalem and performed a Levitical ritual (wearing Levitical priesthood garments) with another supposed Cohen. He even claimed that he and this other person were the only ones who ever correctly performed this ritual (all others have it wrong). Last time I checked, breaking the law of the land (breaking and entering) and breaking the commandments of YHWH (as a non-Levite who wore Levitical garments) in this manner is sin which Rood has not repented or asked forgiveness for. 3. Rood calls himself Rabbi, however no Yeshiva, college, seminary or Rabbi can be found that awarded this title to him and he refuses to produce the smicha (the ordination which can only happen in Israel and witnessed by three Orthodox Rabbis). Rood has no documents that can be verified - IOW there is absolutely ZERO way to prove what he says. This is a problem because he REFUSES to let anyone validate his claim/s. 4. Speaking of claims, Rood claimed to be a chaplain in the U.S. Navy but his rank was that of an enlisted man who served in the infantry then supposedly made sergeant. Interesting note is that chaplains in the U.S. Armed forces are ALWAYS officers (captains and above). Rood does not say how he went from from sergeant to officer; nor does Rood's timeline of service reflect any possibility of him completing the required college/seminary courses and meeting the requirements set by the Dept of the Navy. BTW Navy Chaplains must be a U.S. citizen at least 21 years of age; hold a B.A. or B.S. degree, with not less than 120 semester hours from a qualified educational institution; and hold a post-baccalaureate graduate degree, which includes 72 semester hours of graduate-level course work in a field of theological or related studies. At least one-half (i.e. 36) of these hours must include topics in general religion, theology, religious philosophy, ethics, etc. The problem is with all these requirements is that Rood's timeline does not support the time it would take to get a BS or BA degree! There are ZERO college transcripts supporting Rood's claims. I don't know anyone who refuses to provide college transcripts - the only people that refuse are those who do not have them. 5. Rood claimed that he was the in "the Navy Chaplain Corps as the ONLY full time teacher and ministry training in the history of the U.S. Marines" and that "The Captain of the ship radioed to the Flagship Admiral, "I need a Chaplain over here ASAP. We've got some kind of 'revival' going on over here with the Marines - The whole damn Battalion is sitting on the deck right now with some NCO teaching them about the return of Christ." Within the hour a chopper landed on the fantail. Two days later on a small island, the largest number of Marines since WWII were baptized in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean." That are HUGE claims and I have tried to verify these claims but not one person I talked to can substantiate his claims. I hope to get Rood's military record through the Freedom of Information Act and finally get to the bottom of it. 6. Rood has claimed the title of Rabbi, Messianic Rabbi, Jewish Messianic and even a Karaite (btw Karaites do not believe in Jesus/Yeshua as the Messiah - perhaps that is why later on Rood stopped using this title?). Opps. BTW Rood's own son said that his Dad just one day started calling himself "Rabbi". 7. Rood has used the word "Theologian" to describe himself but again there is no record of him attending any seminary or receiving any doctorate in theology. Why would he refuse to give out the school he attended and graduated? Hmmm... 8. Rood's old claim of once being an "ordained non-denominational Christian minister" are interesting too - what denomination did he belong to? He was a follower of The Way International (TWI - a dangerous religious cult). His biography claims that he is an "ordained nondenominational Christian minister," for Capitol Hill Christian Fellowship but does not state that it was with The Way Int. which ordained him. By implying that this ordination gives him credibility, he misrepresents his background. TWI taught many non-Christian teachings, including that Jesus Christ was a perfect man but not human and divine, that the Holy Spirit is not a personal being (an "It"), that the filling of the Holy Spirit just amounts to people regaining their own spirit which was lost at the Fall, that many verses of the Bible are untrustworthy because they were altered hundreds of years after they were written, etc. etc. I could go on but you get the point. Yes Rood does teach a lot of truth but it only takes a little leaven to ruin the whole lump. I know my words probably don't mean much but consider the following... Dr. Michael Brown, the author of "Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus" who is a published Semitic scholar who holds a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Languages (Hebrew and Aramaic) and Literatures from New York University evaluated Rood's book "Pagan-Christian Connection Exposed" including Rood's language abilities wrote the following... ""...Michael J. Rood, The Pagan-Christian Connection Exposed (Gainesville, FL: Bridge-Logos, 6004[2004] sic!, xvii, 123 pp.) This is a shockingly poor book with almost no redeeming qualities, and it is best dismissed as a mere sensationalistic curiosity. If taken seriously, the extreme rhetoric and exaggerated statements that dominate the book could prove dangerous to unsuspecting readers. ... it bears several marks of cult-like teaching, something which is especially unfortunate, since it is published by Bridge-Logos. ... Each chapter is clearly based on Rood’s TV shows ...Pictures of the author, depicted in full priestly regalia, appear a dozen times in the book, including the front and back cover, and the message is simple: Michael Rood alone has the revelation. Others – meaning the great majority of believers throughout the world, especially in America – are in darkness and willful ignorance, blinded by their “Western Gentile mentalities” (pp. xvi, 59; see also p. 69).... Actually, it is his calling other parts of the Body “cults” that is cultlike, and it should be recognized as such ... Space forbids me from citing other, similar examples – and there are many – but it should be noted that Rood, who claims to think Hebraically and who somehow claims access to otherwise hidden and secret information (see, e.g., pp. 43-44), cannot even get simple Hebrew names right, using non-existent forms like Yahshua (instead of Yehoshua, p. 77) as well as Azriyah and Haninyah (instead of Azaryah and Hananyah, p. 54, and see Dan 1:7). He even makes the wildly inaccurate claim that the Greeks “called all their gods, from Adonis to Zeus, Christos” (p. 76), while in reality, in the Greek, Gentile world, christos had virtually no spiritual significance and was normally misunderstood as a proper name. ...there are a few good points that Rood does make, they ...are not new at all, while the new points he makes are anything but good. Bridge-Logos would do well to consult with biblical scholars who are sensitive to the Jewish roots of the faith before publishing more books of this kind. The inflammatory rhetoric, often based on wrong information, will certainly not promote truth." ..." 4." Dr. Michael Brown is a recognized and vetted PH.D scholar but Rood, not so much. IF Rood was a sincere man of God THEN he would submit to testing and proving his claims but he always refuses. If he is telling the truth then why does he have to refuse? Failed prophesy - no repentance Michael Rood has also had some failed prophesies. It is interesting that Jamie Louis, whom Rood once worked with, stated concerning the breakup of A Rood Awakening!, and his role in supporting Rood since 1998 that: "...We produced various products, including a 10-hour video production called Count Down to 6001. On this video, Michael was predicting that in September 1999, the 7th millennium would begin. He predicted that this day would be Tishri 10, 6001, which would be the Day of Atonement and the start of the last seven years before Armageddon.... As we all know this never happened - according to scripture Rood is a false prophet. This again makes me question Rood and his motives as he never stepped down from ministry. I think people need to do some background checking on their favorite teachers - I used to watch Rood's videos and read his books but then I found some questionable information. Hence I started digging. The more I dug the more questionable and damaging info I found. I hope you take this into consideration.

  • Joseph Kuzara on Why Animal Sacrifices? (Not For What Christians Think)Luke 24:39 See My hands and My feet, that I am He. Touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see Me having. Our glorified spiritual bodies being the heavenly dwelling He went to prepare for us are of flesh and bone (but not flesh and blood as such cannot enter the new Jerusalem) and not just our immaterial self just as Jesus' spiritual body when He resurrected physically unto immortality. He assured His Apostles that He was not a spirit but flesh and bone. If by the flesh you meant mortal, then please clarify for future readers. But if you meant that the spiritual glorified body has no flesh but is strictly Immaterial, you would be wrong in your statement that the spiritual body is without flesh.
  • Ed Guidry on Who Restores All Things: Elijah or Jesus?Jesus Christ, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh...(Romans1:3) In no way am I intending to "spiritualize this Prophesy". This is simply how I have observed God hides the mystery of the Gospel from the "no desire to understand" sceptic. For the Jewish Apostles, who would testify to the authenticity of Jesus being the Christ, the fact that he was a descendent of David was of utmost importance. First of all, you may recall that in the days of Samuel the Judge, Israel was loosely self-governed. There was no body politic from which came orders, or an army for protection, or human hierarchy that could be considered the ultimate human authority. In those early days of Israel, there was simply a priesthood supported by the Tithe, the Holy scriptures, and an invisible God. A theocracy if you will. There were leaders, but no human King. God was their King who directed the people through Prophets and Elders. (See 1 Samuel 8) The elders and general population became disappointed over time with Samuels choice to put his sons in leadership, because "They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice. 4*  So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. 5 They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead[b] us, such as all the other nations have.” 6 But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but THEY HAVE REJECTED ME AS THEIR KING. The nation of Israel, at that moment, was at a turning point, and ready to change the nature of their governance. It isn’t until the New Covenant is established that God returns to what is now the antitype that form of Kingdom rule, through the hearts of the people and by the spirit of the living God. In the Church Age, the testimony of God once again would be recognized as The King of his people and the leader of the people from all nations. It is interesting that the Jews who reject the idea that their Messiah could be God in human flesh, also looks forward to the day when the Messiah comes and “restores all things”, by becoming a Righteous King ruling over the nations. Specifically related to Malachi 4:5-6 is Matthew 17:10-13 where “His disciples asked Him, saying, ‘Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?’ Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things. But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him but did to him whatever they wished. . . .’ Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist.” Actually the disciples mistakenly understood that Jesus was speaking of John the Baptist. The fact is Jesus was prophesying of himself. This was the New Covenant’s promise, to restore all things. In Jeremiah 30:3 it is prophesied that “days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will restore the fortunes of my people, Israel and Judah, says the LORD, and I will bring them back to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall take possession of it.”….Verse 7, “Alas! That day is so great there is none like it; it is a time of distress for Jacob; yet he shall be saved out of it.”….Verse 8, “And it shall come to pass in that day, declares the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and I will burst your bonds, and foreigners shall no more make a servant of him.”….Verse 9, “But they shall serve the LORD their God and DAVID, THEIR KING, whom I will raise up for them.” Who is this DAVID, THEIR KING, that the Lord shall raise up to restore the fortunes of God’s People in the latter days? It is actually referring to Jesus. In the same way that Jesus is referred to as David in Jeremiah 30:9 so also is Jesus referring to himself at Elijah who restores all things. In the New Covenant period, Jesus establishes His Kingdom and does restore all things, even to the point of restoring Israel in the final days of the old earths existence. Jesus sets up a visible reign on the earth and as a visible King, he restores the reign of God as the king of this tiny nation. “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” (Zechariah 9:9 ) This is how I see it anyway.
  • Vooks on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Hidden? Why are we even told about its existence if it is totally 'not for us'? This is escapist. There is nothing hidden or revealed that supercedes the Revelation of Jesus Christ. He is the reference point, and not the prophets. There will never be need for reversing the gains on the cross
  • Vooks on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Heard the sacrifices are memorial, and I'm here wondering. Jesus instituted bread and wine for memorial. Are we saying that in the millennium that will be set aside and we revert to bloody sacrifices?
  • Tim McHyde on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Steve, Ezekiel 40-46 is about the Millennial Temple. Ezekiel is not in chronological order. Ezekiel 39 (Armageddon) comes before Ezekiel 40-46 while Ezekiel 38 comes after the Millennium.
  • Steve on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Tim, correct me if I'm wrong, but Ezekiel 40 - 48 are AFTER the millennium, not during. That is why those chapters follow the Gog and Magog incursion just as Rev 20 does and it also is after the millennium when G&M (got and magog) happen.
  • Tim McHyde on Mark of the Beast: Literal or Sunday Worship?Duke, who said the "ten commandments" were for all humanity? Jesus never did; Christianity alone does. When asked the requirements for salvation (Mt 19:16), Jesus answered by skipping over the sabbath and 600 other commandments of the Torah including four of "the ten commandments" given to ancient Israel by Moses and focused on the love thy neighbor commandments (Mt 19:17-19). You have to ask yourself do you follow Moses' words or Jesus' words?
  • Duke on Mark of the Beast: Literal or Sunday Worship?If you want any authority to tell us to keep the sabbath, then wait a little bit . America will tell us to keep Sunday as the sabbath. I beg you in the name of God to read more about the sabbath. And tell us how many commandments we should stop following, together with the 4th. Did God remove only the 4th and left the rest or He removed all ten? How can you escape being together with the antichrist?.
  • Wayne on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Really enjoy each one of your comments, I always learn a lot from the comment section. I've been a believer for 6 years now and I'm quite low on the learning curve, but diligently reading YAHWEH, YAHUAH or YAHUWAH' S Word daily. I just finished Ezekiel today for my tenth time of reading the Bible and I don't think I ever said WOW before, but this time that word came out of my mouth at least 10 times, maybe more. I'm not at the pay grade yet to offer my thoughts, just trying to absorb yours. Just thought you might find enjoyment, knowing you have newbies reading your stuff. One of thoughts I had after chapter 48 was, I'm surprised Ezekiel made it into the canonical books and not thrown to side with apocraypha books. I don't think I've heard a Church preach on Ezekiel or maybe I fell asleep and miss it.
  • Jerry on Michael Rood Comes for an Unexpected VisitTim... ran across your web site today... just thought I'd send a quick note and say Hi...! Conversed with you for a while many years ago [10-12]. Glad to see you are still hanging in there as we all should, and not giving up... you commented on Michael Rood, we to have had a connection with him. Met him and Nehemiah at a seminar he was giving when he was selling his 'mystery of the Ages" book... and I completely agree with you about Michael... he is a great teacher, a tad rough around the edges, but I think that's the Marine coming out of him... when he is right he is "dead on" but at other times he, in my opinion miss the mark, enjoy his ministry but don't always agree with him... and again as you said we all don't understand everything the same at the same time... are you still down in the Panama area...? Well have a good one... "keep on keeping on"... Jerry in Washington State
  • John Warren on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?Just to add, I'm also not condoning of the teachings of " the voice in the desert" what I'm trying to say is this, you don't leave everything to join a group, in the process of your sanctification, God will tear anything from your life that he knows is coming between you and him, you'll have to make hard choices. whether it be materialized things, people in your life, your relationship s, your place of work. That's the point, you can't hold onto anything. Let's take Lots wife as an example of this spiritual practice. She looked back, what happened, what did Jesus say to the man who wanted farewell his family, you looked back, not fit for the kingdom. All of the above comments people made, have good points, and, trying to understand these teachings of Jesus are difficult as they are so controversial and contradictory to wordly behavior, that of coarse people will say your crazy. But God's way is not of this world. Gods thoughts are not ours. People Jesus has to be central to everything. There is a brother out there, who resides in Oakland, his name is Vincent, and wow, this guy is what I believe, the closest thing to a true disciple of Christ. He lives a self denying life, making himself homeless from a life of atheism and college education, to full time care of the poor in his region. Preaching every month to them, living everyday full time to help the poor. He gave up everything, and he is so blessed, you can't deny God is with such a man. People I strongly recommend you guys go to YouTube, and search for, Vincent Pannizzo homeless ministry, and watch the video titled "God knows who they are" Watch it and ask yourself how much are you loving others for the Gospels sakes, are you truly living for others as a servant as Christ did.
  • Tim McHyde on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)Sam, If you don't think Satan deceives Christians and all believers, too, the only ones you could categorize as his enemy among humans, then...let me put it this way...a deceived person doesn't know they're deceived.
  • sam on The Ironic Christian Fear of Cults (When They’re Already In One)THe issue is not 'cults' or following harmless traditions....It's about truth and bible doctrine. Just 1 of perhaps many points I could make: The Bible says we’re all deceived (it does not...) The verse is not a reference to everyone but the 'world'......not everyone in it but the location of where humans live. The word 'world' is used in many contexts..... How can you say that have you not read that many will be deceived? Not ALL!!! Are you reading the right bible????
  • mark on Do We Need To “Forsake All” (Like Jesus Said)?Hi Jesus said i have come that you might have life and life more abundantly.God has never changed.The problem is mans understanding its evil and an enemy of God .Until you have encountered God in the spirit you are stuck with your own understanding sorry but its true and you are still in religion.How did the disciples come to the conclusion "WELL WHO CAN BE SAVED".The gospel being preached today will never bring a person to this conclusion Why?because its been watered down to appease itching ears. The kingdom of God is so opposite this world and if you are not secure truly in the love of God you are still on shifting sand. Righteousness comes by faith in Jesus Christ if your not in faith you have no righteousness its simple .if you have fear your still saying Satan is big God is small,to me its so simple ,if Jesus is saying forsake all then you forsake all or Jesus is not Lord and on that day they will say Lord Lord but He will say be away from me for i never knew you, in other words you spent too much time in your own understanding doing the things that you thought were ok and it was detrimental to our relationship.His life is life and until you have truly experienced it spirit to spirit you still have no clue this is hard to here but its true and Mathew 24 tells us the love of many will grow cold and many will depart from the faith are you one of those people Mathew is talking about. The criteria for being a disciple of Jesus Christ is clear thats why He make 2 statements that should shake you 1.WILL I FIND FAITH IN THE EARTH? 2 NARROW AND DIFFICULT IS THE WAY THAT LEADS TO LIFE AND ONLY A FEW FIND IT. John 6 is a typical chapter, were disciples turn away and follow him no more ,why did they turn away?They said its difficult. Don,t think its different for you and me today it is certainly not so do not be deceived.To forsake all includes yourself ,Satan is not the problem you and i are.Jesus did not die to give you a better day,He did not save you to turn every traffic light green and give you the best parking space at Asda that type of Christianity is carnal and self centred.He came to put our self centred living to death so you no longer live but Christ lives in you and me has it happened in you yet.He will only say good and faithful servant to those who have been He can not lie.If your not living for the eternal your still earthly and your security is still in the temporal arena thats going to be shaken violently that the only things to remain are the things that can not be shaken.The picture is so clear to me Jesus is awesome have you really been born again and said what must i do to be saved or have you just prayed a prayer to go to Heaven show me in the bible were this prayer is please i have never found it . Did He walk on the shaws of Gallalie and shout hey guys pray this prayer then walk away?No He said follow me, you can pray a prayer and never follow and the church is full of such people how very sad this is to me. I would like to finish on this simple truth. YOU ARE CLAY and clay has no say neither do you, its down to the potters WILL what that clay becomes.You as a Christian have no rights what so ever if you think you have its called rebellion and God hates it like any other sin.DENY SELF and follow Christ is the only way otherwise there is no following,God bless
  • Matt on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?What everyone is missing here is this is the end of a age and a beginning of a New Age. When there is a new age there has always been a change in the priesthood and when there is a change in the priesthood that priest MUST offer sacrifices for himself. There has been 6 ages so far were are at the end of the sixth age. No one wants to consider that the Male Child or Man Child talked about the New Testament is someone other than Jesus this idea fills in so many blanks in questions that people have about end time events.
  • D L on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Jesus does offer sacrifices -/ Hebrews clearly says He offered His own blood and also Hos body as well as ever living to fulfill other priestly duties and it is a resurrected human body that he has so we can't say He doesn't have a human body -- He does have a human body but's resurrected like ours will be.
  • D L on Is Jesus the “Prince” of Ezekiel 40-48?Obviously no one understands this and it is part of the "hidden manna" or something sealed until we are translated to be a "spirit of righteous men made perfect" (Heb 12:23) or do have resurrected bodies in the Millennium
