  • Cristiana on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Tim, Some youtubers on youtube have now set another date for the rapture(July 17), claiming God told them with some of them saying that God confirmed it in their dreams. At first, I kind of believed it, but then I found fault with it, specifically because in the bible, the rapture does not happen before the tribulation after I read it. God wouldn't go against the Bible's word, and Jesus certainty wouldn't come on a day we'd all expect him to anyway, like he said. That's probably why even if he was coming on May 14th, he didn't because everyone knew about it. So, I wonder if something significant is going to happen that day, like the starting of a war or something.
  • Tim McHyde on Antichrist Identified From 666 and Revelation 13?Zara, sorry I'm not the author or expert on that topic. Ask Monte Judah or Tim Cohen.
  • Zara on Antichrist Identified From 666 and Revelation 13?Hello Tim, I’v researched about the House of Hapsburg and the descendants of the Charles VI. I couldn’t find how Prince Charles is connected with the Charles VI through the Hapsburg line. Could you please help me here? Thanks
  • Silke on John HageeI'm working on becoming a true Berean. 🙂 Meanwhile I just can't help trusting you and Katrina, and I certainly won't try to change that. Thanks for providing some names - I'll be sure to check them out!
  • Tim McHyde on To Hell And Back BookletAllen, you are correct and that is a detail that the author of the article did not understand obviously. I've edited the article to correct that error, all due respect to the original author. Thanks.
  • Tim McHyde on John HageeSilke, sure there's a few teachers I find worth listening to like Nehemia Gordon, Michael Rood, Jeff Miner, Andrew Wommack, Roger Sapp. You should not trust any of us but be a Berean (Acts 17:11).
  • Tim McHyde on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Steve, yes, my articles have become more hard-hitting as the time draws near to confront and prepare readers for the end. What I'm sharing lately can be depressing if you don't stop and put yourself in the perspective of a Good God who's doing or decreeing these "terrible things." He knows life is temporarily anyway, death is also temporarily because a resurrection to a better time is ahead for all the dead. When you die in a typical video game, you just respawn after a short pause. That's how death is in real life, too.
  • allen on To Hell And Back BookletIn the article, Three Hells, there continue to be errors of understanding: Fallen angels are NOT demons. Demons are dead Nephilim. All fallen angels were not sent to Tartarus. Only the 200 Watcher class angels that Jude and Peter refer to that made a pact on Mount Hermon to breed with human females. These are the ones Jesus 'preached' to when he was in 'hell'. Demons will not be judged. They will be exterminated in the Lake of Fire along with the Beast and False Prophet who are also Nephilim, which is why God calls ‘it’ the ‘beast’. Correct?
  • Silke on John HageeIs there any recommendable ministry at all out there?? 😀 Seems like the only one one can really trust is yours!
  • Steve Wilson on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Tim, you have some good articles but they seem like a double-edged sword. It is good to be informed about the future but it is also like a depressant to realize how little time is left and the terrible things that lie ahead for billions of people. How do you deal with it?
  • Steve on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?This is really troubling but we know how much God loves His people.
  • Zara on Antichrist Identified From 666 and Revelation 13?Hello Tim, I’v researched about the House of Hapsburg and the descendants of the Charles VI. I couldn’t find how Prince Charles is connected with the Charles VI through the Hapsburg line. Could you please help me here? Thanks
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Glenn, Jesus never said "no WILL EVER know" but no one (including him) KNOWS (2000 years ago). How could he say never or have meant that that when there are prophets that know these things and they are coming in the end times? Plus 1260 days from the abomination is the return, so ignoring the prophet issue, counting works, too.
  • Glenn Cox on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)We cannot know the exact time of Jesus' return. Jesus even said that only the Father knows. So, your post-trib position cannot be correct because we will know the beginning of Daniel's 70th week. It will commence when the "Treaty" is signed. Inasmuch as we will know the start of that week of prophecy, it is easy to calculate the end of the week. Therefore, we would know 7 years in advance when Jesus would return. Of course, the pre-trib position is wrong too as you stated. The Bible does teach a Pre-Wrath Rapture that happens between the 6th and 7th Trumpet judgments. Since we won't see that wrath, we will be raptured just before it. Rapture and Wrath are back to back events as shown throughout the Bible, example, Sodom and Gomarrah. We know the Wrath will fall at an undetermined point in time after the mid-point and the end of the 70th week.
  • mikhael on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Yeah it says 'Bee' (in/at) Jerusalem in the Hebrew as well, but where it says the nations fight against Jerusalem the word 'al' is used. (against)
  • David Price on Overcoming Your Common End Time FearsThomas, I went to the link you supplied and watched the second video where Lowell describes his book and the program. I find it very interesting that he talks about surviving the 6th seal like it was a bad storm and everything will be rosy after that on the "beautiful shore". He fails to take into account the total destruction of our infrastructure and communications of today. Nowhere does he talk about Elijah and our escape to Mount Zion for protection from the sixth seal and the Antichrist. I would be wary of someone who tells you that it will all be fine, just follow me.... that is the message of Antichrist! The bible describes the six seal like there is NO advanced warning. Everyone is surprised. Read Rev 8: 1-5. This is an interesting description of what Tim has described as the source of "Wormwood" and how it can appear suddenly.
  • Victor Sanvicens Guaita on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)MARANATHA 2031! "YEAR 6000" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwJGyXk1HaQ&feature=youtu.be " YEARS 6000 OF SIN AND JESUS RETURNS (1ST PART) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qqfU9Z6TV8&feature=youtu.be
  • Thomas Peterson on Overcoming Your Common End Time FearsI like that you mentioned that wanting the end to come is not surprisingly the hardest of all the issues to resolve. I've been waiting for the end times and found myself very distracted. I've been reading a Bible Prophecy End Times Book to better prepare myself. I've also found your article very helpful coming to terms with overcoming fears about the end times. https://thepropheticplaybook.com/
  • Sam Douglas on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)So there’s no chance we see the return in the next 3 years? Please respond! I love your opinion!
  • Sam Douglas on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Great read Tim! I just read an article today that said they believe the blood moon over the holy land will trigger the peace deal and thus trigger the end. Can I get your thoughts? Will we see the end in 2-5 years? Would love to hear you opinion!
  • Darlynn on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Yes a 70 yr generation or 80 if by strength..but look at King Hezekiah and the extension by Grace of 15 years to his life... there is much prophecy in King Hezekiah to be learned about end time events. 1948 land of Israel 70 yr generation 2018... 1967 Jerusalem 50 year Jubilee 2018.....God said in Genesis He gives man 120 yrs ie Jubilee years...5778/2018 is the 120th Jubilee year...many rabbis have confirmed that the true calendar is off by 1 year so this year 5779/2019 has not started yet and we are still in 5778/2018... a Jubilee year. Every criteria has been met for a snatching away event to happen but if we are in an extended Grace period "so that all may come" then 1948 + 85 = 2033 which Jesus says will see the coming of the son of man...that is an event that ALL will see him coming on the clouds...that is not talking about the snatching away... so then 2033-7 =2026 .. at the last Trump could be at the end of 2nd term presidency or a child of Trump has run for president and won...one thing is for certain, the third temple preparations are almost complete and they have been sacrifcing for the last 4 years. Obama has been visiting the Seat of Satan ie Pergamon in Berlin every year for 10 years and it has been closed for the last 5 years and was to reopen this year but now it is delayed until 2024...does he know something? the second term of Trump? understand that Obama showed us who he was at the acceptance speech in Denver when he had them replicate the throne of zeus in the stadium and put his podium in the center to accept the nomination for president... Hitler did the same thing in Germany... he just recently on Passover gave another speech to the up and coming young European leaders like he was campaigning... something to think about.
  • Tim McHyde on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Jake, the sky scene as described in Rev 12 (not the embellished and hyped version) happens regularly, not just in 2017. Agreed on the 144,000 going in pairs. But the "4 blood moons" also were not in the Bible. The sign to look for that everyone ignores is Mt 24:14, the good news of the kingdom being preached again, worldwide.
  • Tim McHyde on Three Big Events I Expect In 2022 Based On Two DreamsBrenda, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0hK1wyrrAU
  • Brenda on Three Big Events I Expect In 2022 Based On Two DreamsTim, Bible prophecy cannot be interpreted correctly unless you take into consideration that the original Hebrews in the Bible are the Negroes that fled to Africa in 70 A.D. Everything else falls in line after that. Brenda P.S. Oh, by the way I do not expect to see the comment I posted above in this thread. Most people cannot accept that
  • Jake Harmina on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Hi Tim and all. Just two thoughts about the article and recent comments: 1. The Rev 12 sign of the Woman in the heavens actually happened on September 23, 2017. I believe this is a heads-up that the establishment of the Beast power is at the door and the Woman (group) must prepare themselves for the Wilderness. You might want to add this info as an addendum to this article. 2. Yahweh always provides two witnesses against this sinning world, a pattern that points to the echad relationship between the Father and the Son. We had Moses/Aaron, the law and the testimony (spirit), king (Zerubbabel) and priest (Joshua), old covenant/new covenant, Peter/Paul, the 2 witnesses of Rev (Michael and Gabriel IMHO), etc. The 144k will be two physical groups of believers (2x72) that will act as witnesses to the world while M&G content with the Beast in Jerusalem. The 144k will travel in pairs, just like the original 72. In the 1st century, Paul's work was the second witness.....the 72 went to the lost sheep of Israel and Paul to the gentiles. Satan has always copied the things of God, so he'll have his two witnesses as well.....the beast and false prophet (the king/priest combo). Just wanted to share these thoughts as we have probably entered the end-time for sure as we have many signs to confirm....the blood moons at feast times, the Tabernacle of David found in 2014/15, the Rev 12 sign in 2017, Jews sacrificing a lamb this past Passover (rejection of Yahshua) and demising the Sabbath in the Holy Land, Trump's Mid-East peace plan coming, etc. Time to be watching and preparing yourself for your Wilderness experience. Blessings to all. Jake
  • Fred on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Ok. We need to keep an eye on this guy. His rise to power has been remarkable. He is very smart and smooth. He speaks a few languages fluently. He wants to rule like a Greek god. His parents named him Emmanuel even though they are atheists.
  • Fred on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Any thoughts on Emmanuel Macron becoming the antichrist?
  • Tim McHyde on Revelation’s 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At DeathChristopher, your comment equates "Jesus' disciples" (who had the parables explained to them) with "believers" (Christians). This is a critical error that most of us unconsciously have made when reading the Bible. Believers today cannot be equated with "Jesus' disciples." The disciples forsook home, family and "all" (Mt 19:27) to follow Jesus around for a year. In exchange they were taught by him personally, including hearing those key private explanations of the parables. Us? We only have two of those private explanations recorded :(. The parables were designed to confuse the rest of us and if you just look at the confusion in Christian doctrine and interpretation of them, you can see they succeed. We must pray, seek, strive, and dig into the whole Bible and other materials (commentaries will help you with your request on the Egyptian and other influences of Jesus' words) and get help from the HS if we are to have a chance of understanding Jesus' difficult words. Sorry for the buzzkill, bummer news, but that's Yes, I stated that Jesus' original audience (including "unbelievers") could understand the cultural references/scenarios natively, but there is much more to understanding a parable than that, yes? A parable is still not the same as a nice plain tutorial like the disciples got in private constantly. What helps us today is having the whole Bible to search out (and the Internet), something they did not have. This internet generation that is enable to finally understand the mysteries of the Bible (Dan 12:4,9-10).
  • Christopher on Revelation’s 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At DeathHi Tim my understanding is that parables were for the understanding of believers only so why would Jesus use a cultural reference that unbeleivers would understand you say you beleive in literal interpretation if so the profound reference to a literal heaven and hell are obvious also to the exercising of gods divine love towards the poor and needy Jesus took this truth one step further by saying look after those we hate as well as those we love l would appreciate any references you have from outside the bible that prove Jesus was using a cultural reference based on egyption influences here l am well versed in the other parables you listed l have been reading your posts since your first publication of know the future
  • Tim McHyde on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Mark, if Jacob's Trouble started in 2018, we would all be dead or elsewhere and definitely not talking as it's God's wrath (Jer 30:6-7=Isa 13:6-9). Even the Great Tribulation (Satan's wrath) would do the same... I think it's time to let go of the 2018 prophecy...
  • Tim McHyde on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Asha, Rev 2:9 and 3:9 have nothing to do with today or the population of Israel but an issue in the church! This "fake Israelites" idea is a conspiracy theory I addressed already but does not seem to die.
  • Tim McHyde on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Ron, Isaiah 17 describes a "one day war" to top the Six Day War. No time for America or anyone else to play a role when a nuke goes off in Israel and Israel nukes those responsible in response, Samson Option style.
  • Mark on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?(from South Africa) Hi Jacobs Trouble started 30 August 2018 - The trouble is for all nations ,peoples,tongues and tribes confessing God and Christ as Savior. firstly and then progressing to those nations where Gods hand is not upon them. Judgement starts in Gods house first!!!!... Was given this date to write it down and was taken to certain nations and shown whats coming. this war coming to Israel is real and true and will happen in this 7 year time frame called Jacobs Trouble. "god calls The present".... Israel First let me say - all the other places I was taken by the Father I could hear but not see Him only in Israel was I able to see him in this (realm Meaning the sky) and Shown what was to come this was explained to me that the place we stood at or over was Mount Zion. It was explained as such – My earthly father Steven was a pilot and owned various aircraft throughout his life time, my siblings and I were born into flying and I have the same love for flying as my father had, my siblings not. I learnt to fly from a young age and it’s definitely a passion. However to explain is like this the skies are like highways and byways and corridors for aviation restricted air-spaces Etc, different radio frequencies are used when entering certain air-spaces, now likewise this airspace over Mount Zion is considered Holy completely Holy and as such the father walks there. (My guess is it’s like a staircase of sorts though I didn’t see it) The Love of the Father is and can only be described when one draws near to Him and for the record of all the times I have walked with Him have never seen such sadness as that time. Was shown the gathering of warfare at Sinai valley, tanks the likes of many from my view point it stretched far and was huge. Was shown Israel itself and Tel Aviv being struck was shown many thousands upon thousands of people dead and was given figures that will cause many to shudder. It’s not to say the attacking nations don’t get its only to say that if 2 million people in Israel die saying 80 million enemies are decimated. These are figures and where given as to explain how extreme it will be. Not to say this is exact from my understanding it was given as a reality of how shocking this war will be to Israel. (Considering 1 life to Israelis is worth 1000 other lives as evident in captive negotiations and that of a soldier so to speak). When I said this is written as Armageddon the Father said no this isn’t Armageddon nor is it the Great War men call - WW3 - the Father calls the Great War. However He did tell me when that will happen. They have taken their eyes off of Him and become god in their own eyes; the church has made Israel a god and taken their eyes off His Son Jesus. The Father explained His grace and Mercy of restoring and bringing them back to their land and all the other wars His hand was upon them. This one His hand will not be on them. I was shown their arrogance of looking to other nations for protection and relying on themselves with boasting and pride of what they had achieved. I was shown the deceit of them wanting their land and not asking the Father for Help – this being the primer for this situation. Was shown the miracle of the six day war and though well versed in its history... it’s another thing to see it and hear it from the Father. This war will rage for about six months and then the Father will Step in and help. This has to happen as was explained if it doesn’t happen all will be lost, this causes many Jews and Israelis to come to the Messiah the Lion of the Tribe of Judah...... The Father went on to speak about how 70 years is a generation and how all nations fail at this time frame implicitly not only Israel but all nations, and how He has to step in...... Being anxious at what I was witnessing, I suppressed it by commenting on how America would assist... however the Father said no “America” -won’t - be involved in this war as they would have their own problems to contend with....... The fathers last comment was how the church are going to be shocked and wonder, this will cause many to wake up.... (It was explained they worship Israel) Part of my assignment is to pray for Israel all the brothers and sisters working there and for the eyes and ears of the peoples to be open and for the hand of protection on those in Christ sharing the Gospel of Salvation ...... My question of when the answer was in this 7 year period and backed up with shortly.... Own inserts - Tim from - escapeallthesethings - believes the scripture relating to this is Psalms 83. I was shown Jeremiah 30. Tim has been shouting this warning from early 2000, Maurice Sklar, Christine Beadsworth from South Africa and a few others confirm the above. THE DATE OF THE BEGINING OF JACOBS TROUBLE 30 AUGUST 2018 will effects the whole world not just Israel. I personally believe this time frame is the start of tribulation or birth pains and it isn’t the end of the world or the coming of Christ in flesh just yet........ However the pace if before this date was slow is now racing... Mathew 24 is very relevant........
  • Ron Perkins on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Tim, thanks for your boldness to declare the truth of God's word not only to Israel but to all who may not yet understand the consequences of disobedience in not repenting of our national sins. It's almost as if the handwriting is on the wall and we are still blind to it. I am wondering though what America's role will be in the destruction of Damascus, Israel, WWIII, etc. since we are supposed to be their only main supporter.
  • Asha on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Revelation 2:9 King James Version (KJV) 9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Always has made me wondered if those who are currently in Israel are not the true israelites. Maybe that's why another holocaust is going to happen, basically a purging of the land.
  • Richard Staats on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Hi Tim! Another solid article, something I had come to realize from my own studies several years back. Do you see this as a possible fulfillment of Zec 13:8-9? Zec 13:8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith Yahweh, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. Zec 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, Yahweh is my Elohim. Interestingly, this corresponds with the reduction from 9 million to 3 million..coincidence?? Blessings to you and your family!
  • Tim McHyde on Revelation’s 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At DeathChristopher, Jesus used familiar cultural references all the time to make his points, regardless of whether they included inaccuracies, dishonesty or unfairness. Consider the parable of the unjust steward or the day workers who were all paid the same wage regardless of how long they worked. Those listening were familiar with all the scenarios he used such as the wedding party virgins, although most today do not and get even more lost than the original audience. This fulfills what he said to make things hard on purpose (Matthew 13:11,14,15). Pastors today teach about heaven referencing "Peter at the pearly gates," too. Is the point of all these usages to assure us that we can count on a kind reception from Peter when we go to heaven?
  • Sandy Mavity on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Tim, thanks for putting this all together! I've had questions about this exact thing and now I have the answers. It's all coming together! God's blessings!!!
  • Christopher Lorraine on Revelation’s 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At DeathHi Tim just wondering where in the bible it says this is a parable regarding Lazarus...EDIT: I know this is listed as a parable in the bible my question should have been how you know it was based on Egyption influences and if so why would Jesus mention it if it wasnt relevent?
  • Tim McHyde on Revelation’s 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At DeathChristina, I've read them, but not recently. They are not accepted as Scripture by most including me, so whatever they say I would not overturn what Scripture says, such as the very helpful Book of Revelation. In Rev 6 at the 5th seal it describes the righteous resting under an altar (!), not having a wonderful life. Rev 20:5 says the "rest of the dead" (wicked) are not alive either at the time but "live again" after their own resurrection. There is no Scripture that literally depicts the dead having experiences of any kind before the resurrection. (Lazarus is a parable, based on Egyptian influences.)
  • Christina Gibson on Revelation’s 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At DeathHi Tim, I was wondering if you’ve read 2 Esdras and Baruch, along with any other apocryphal books that were removed from the Bible? I ask because in 2 Esdras, it goes into detail what happens after you die. If you’re found to be righteous, then of course it’s beyond wonderful. But if you’re found to be unrighteousness...Yikes. It talks about torments in hell while waiting on the resurrection and final judgement. Of course I really want to believe the latter isn’t true, and that your interpretation is! I already know your thoughts on NDE experiences, so I won’t ask again. Since I personally know someone who had one, I do 100% believe his is legitimate. Now I’m just curious on your take on 2 Esdras and Baruch. Thank you Tim and may Father bless you and your family! 🥰🙏🏻🕊
  • Talbert Chisum on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Tim, I couldn't agree more. I just explained this scenario to my son (age 30) earlier this week. I was surprised to find your article only a few days later explaining it. (Way better than I did!) Tehran can't attack Jerusalem because it has their 3rd most holy site, the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. But Tel Aviv is wide open, way bigger than Jerusalem, and Israel's most modern city = Sitting Duck... Other items of interest this week: June 7, 2019 (1) Russia successfully test fired their Hyper Sonic missile which can arrive in USA in 15 minutes. (2) A former deputy head of the UN’s atomic watchdog said Wednesday that Iran is capable of producing enough enriched uranium for a nuclear bomb in six to eight months. (3) Israel's LGBTQ community held their annual "Jerusalem Gay Pride" parade on June 6, 2019. Yup, things are sure starting to add up! Thank you Tim for all your efforts, may YHWH bless you and keep you and your family.
  • George Ericsen on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?Very compelling article can't wait to read more on these things keep it coming my enlightened friend.
  • Kathryn Arnold on Next: Another Jewish Holocaust in Prophecy?As one who's been on the receiving end of it, when God chastizes you "you know that you know that you know" it was Him. You also know exactly why. Since modern paradigms make it impossible that another nation could again come in, conquer, capture and haul away the population of Israel (as God's punishment for their faithlessness) this doesn't really surprise me as a way God might bring the remnant to repentance. How exactly it might bring them to Jesus is another matter.
  • Caroline Carmack on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Ah! Yes! I will do that thank you:)
  • Tim McHyde on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?Caroline, yes, exactly the 72 and 144,000 are obviously connected given the math and I saw this and wrote about it in 2005 in my writings that later became Know the Future. Jesus was speaking prophetically to the 72 in a message that also applied to later group since the 72 never fulfilled what he said such as being around until the "Son of Man returns." Please review your copy of Know the Future in Part 3 for more on this.
  • Caroline Carmack on The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?This may have already been said somewhere, but the 144K always reminds me of Luke 10 where the 72 return to Jesus. As you said, Jesus sent men out ahead of him to spread the gospel. Not to mention 72*2=144. But what gets me is Luke 10:18-19 where Jesus says, “I saw Satan fall like lightening from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” It’s like Jesus is speaking to the 144K too, especially since Satan falls from the sky in Revelation 9 at the fifth trumpet after the 144K were sealed, followed directly by his locusts from the Abyss that are given “power like that of scorpions.” It’s clear to me the two are connected. What do you think? The Bible is too cool.
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Kenn, Sure, I consider everything with so many people writing me all the time. The book of Daniel, even sealed, is pretty clear there is one 70th week left. That means 7 years = sabbath year cycle in my opinion, but even if I'm wrong, I don't see any reason to expect a 14 yr trib.
  • Kenn on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Hi Tim, Do you ever consider other possibilities, such as the 14year tribulation? Daniel 9:27 has an entire eschatology built upon 'one week' phrase. I am troubled that we as a church are clinging to beliefs that were inherited before the book of Daniel would be opened. Any thoughts on this?
  • Zachary Miller on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Sam, Since there appears to be a lot of evidence showing "some form" of predestination it seems safe to say that's its taking place--Just look at some prophectic examples: The 144,000, set times within the 70th week, writings in the book of life PRIOR TO the start of the Millennium, and many others. Heck, when we think of these two end time prophets can we really believe that they haven't been pre-selected (in some manner)?? Or is God somehow leaving that up to chance? However, we're looking at this problem from the perspective of a "time-based" four dimensional reality. Also, when we look at our reality and see the "cyclical nature" of everything (even the Bible/God functions in this manner) then it's very safe to say that, at the macro level, everything is predictable--How that's impacted by micro-level events, choices, interactions, is beyond us. The really interesting question, in my opinion, is "why" God seals up prophecy AFTER humans are translated...Could it be that "seeing into the future" will be prevented. If so, why? But if we attempt to see it from God's perspective (and I'm just guessing here) it may be that future sight isn't all that exciting and is probably quite boring especially when it's no longer "needed" (to ensure certain things happening). Watching your children grow, without anticipating their every move/choice/etc.., is where the wonder actually comes from--not from knowing everything. But we'll have to see. In any case, I think the really interesting parts will come after that time where an infinite future awaits.
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Fair to themselves, fair to those who died in the flood, Sodom and anywhere else where the person thought the fatality rate was 100% (which it was not).
  • Blaze on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Fair to whom? Fair to themselves. Which is how most people define fair. Paraphrased/quoted from a Blue Bloods episode. I thought it was very thought provoking when I heard it.
  • Jake Harmina on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Happy Sabbath Tim and all. This issue of "fairness" is interesting. We are trying to attribute our modern day, politically correct, concept of fairness to our God's thoughts and actions. Not possible! His ways are not our ways. His will is supreme and His judgments are righteous. He also has favourites and chosen ones (Israel, Jerusalem, Abraham, Moses, Yahshua, etc.) Look at Mt. 20:12 and Ezekiel 18, we humans might think something is unfair but that doesn't make it so with Yahweh. We are unfit to judge the ways and will of the Eternal.....so like you said, get over it (and ourselves)! Our duty is to obey and serve.....right? Thanks Jake
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Richard, "sparing the marked?" Those who took the mark will go through ten days of the 7 bowls of the wrath of God where they get "no rest day or night" with at least 66% dying from it (Zec 13:8). If they can survive that and live with their shame and swallow their pride and anger while they are forced to worship God in the Millennium or receive no rain (Zec 14:17), then more power to them. Dying would be arguably easier, but we need survivors for the glorified to rule. (What good is the promise "You're going to be kings with Christ" when there's only 8 people alive to rule and you wait hundreds of years for them to multiply??) But if you're suggesting having some survivors of God's wrath would be unfair of God to those killed in Lot's or Noah's day, then maybe—if you ignore the 8 survivors of the flood and the 4 survivors of Sodom? However...God is not fair when it comes to who lives and dies in this world and the Bible not only never promises that, but states the opposite: unfairness about who lives and who dies (Ecc 9:11-12)! Realistically, there's no way God could make it all fair in the short-term while allowing free will to play out with his higher goals. Nevertheless, he will in the long term make sure everyone gets a full life and full chance of knowing the full truth to choose or reject it. By the way, "it/that's not fair!" is one of the major issues I have to address with believers wanting to walk on the narrow path (Mt 7:13). Our parents hopefully told us "life is not fair" but most of us struggle to get over this issue. If we don't, we won't be able to maintain faith that "God is good...no matter what" including what we see, hear, feel, think or experience (Heb 10:6=Mk 10:18). So to answer your question what I would tell the people who died in God‘s wrath about the people who survived? “Life is not fair. Get over it.”
  • Richard on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Tim thank you for the article. It has left me quite confused. Here are my concerns 1. There are going to be the survivors (after the wrath of God) that means there will be the non survivors. What did the non survivors do, to be in this category? and what happens to them? are they supposed to draw comfort from the ever loving God who reverses the mark of the beast from the survivors? (correct me if am stating this out of context) 2.God sent his people today and have preached, Elijah will come and preach and warn the people, an angel will go out, the 144,000 .......Don't you think taking the mark is a complete rebellion to God, and God reversing the mark later portrays Him as a "barking 'Dog'?" 3.If the Story of Sodom and Gomorrah is not a tale and the Story of Noah...Floods wiping the entire creation except for Noah and his Sons and the creatures he was asked to put on a board on the boat, This sparing of the disobedient receivers of the mark of beast surely portrays God as a double standard God!!! 3.God is Love and even when HE expelled Satan and condemned (satan) to Hell fire with here followers....He still remained a God of Love who does not Change. Does he feel pain seeing this creation in this state? I dont know for sure.....Does God feel pain when a Tsunami kills Indians and American?I don't know for sure..e.t.c BUT YES HE REMAINS A GOD OF LOVE. Please shed some more light.
  • David on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Tim, Well put! I will have to remember that one! Qualify vs Disqualify. It simplifies it greatly.
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Charles, no one will be going to a window that is presented as, "Choose to drink from the wrath of God!" They will go to something presented as, "Accept food, peace and security from the mighty God on earth, 'as seen on TV'." The previous global warning about "don't take the mark of Beast" will be pushed out of mind by the fraught situation of starvation and abuse by immoral gangs of looting outlaws. So you can say, "they were warned and made their choice" all you want, but in the end, they took the mark under duress and in desperation. No court of law holds people accountable for contracts signed in this situation and God is even more fair than any human court, yes? So yes, it's temporary, but that does not diminish how costly and horrible it still is!
  • Tim McHyde on About Tim & Katrina McHyde / EscapeAllTheseThings.comSteve, you stated well the position of Christianity and how to be a born-again Christian... but, remember, our goal was never originally to be approved by a religion, but to be "Jesus' brother"/"in the kingdom." He said repeatedly to accomplish this that you had to do what he said to produce fruit/good works (Lk 8:21=Lk 6:46=Mt 7:21-23) as did his brother James (Jam 2:17,24) and other NT writers. "Many" Christians (Mt 7:13) like you on the wide path (2 billion(!) Christians) who think they are saved will find out that their Christian requirements fell short (Mt 7:23) of of the three requirements in the Bible because they were not among the "few" (not 2 billion, but only a few million) on the narrow path (Mt 7:14). Yes, we're not saved by works, but you're also "not saved by faith alone" (James 2:24) as James debunked 2000 year ago. (Rhetorical question: how many times and in how many ways does the Bible have to say "faith alone does not save you" before Christians can see and accept this? Instead of constantly repeating the cherry-picked verses that talk about the role of faith?)
  • Steve on About Tim & Katrina McHyde / EscapeAllTheseThings.comA born again believer/Christian is saved by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone plus nothing else, ever. If one has not been born again once and for all, one has not been born again at all. The statement: 'if Jesus is not Lord of all, He is not Lord at all' is false and represents Lordship Salvation, a heresy. No Lordship Salvation teacher will enter Heaven . No Lordship Salvation teacher will be raptured. Only a born again believer/Christian saved by free grace will be raptured/saved, e v e r . Salvation plus works is what is taught against in Matthew 7: 21 Sinless perfection is heresy and is Lordship Salvation. If one teaches Lordship Salvation, one is not a born again Christian but only a very sublte counterfeit and will miss the rapture, be lost at death in Sheol Hades and will be judged at the Great White Throne ... and will be cast into the searing, eternally scalding, tortuous Lake of Fire .... for eternity. Only the born again believer via free grace will escape judgement, be taken in the rapture and be in Heaven with the Trinity forever. M a r a n a t h a

  • Tim McHyde on Isaiah 17: Will Israel Nuke Damascus? Why Not Yet From Psalm 83Ron, God only knows, but I expect it to still look uninhabitable and for us to need to go there by faith that God will protect us.
  • Ron Perkins on Isaiah 17: Will Israel Nuke Damascus? Why Not Yet From Psalm 83Tim, this is the second time I've read this article and just noticed that Jordon is one of the nations that are part of the "Alliance" that comes against Israel and am wondering how that will affect the final time to "Flee to the mountains" to the place of safety? Will it take from late 2022 to 2026 for the land to be somewhat inhabitable or redeemable?
  • Tim McHyde on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)James, the Mayan calendar was a dud so why would anyone say 7 years later from it is significant?
  • Ron Perkins on Simple Endtime Events ListTim, thanks for the simplified list as it's really helpful for me as I am mostly "old school" and don't like to get to bogged down in all the details. For me it all essentially boils down to the two most important things Yeshua taught concerning the GotK, "Love the Lord with all your heart, mind, and strength, and Love your neighbor as yourself." The details are important but are somewhat dependent on timelines and certain events given in scripture, past, present, and future. I still have alot of work I need on my own salvation and pray I'll be ready when it's time to "escape all these things" and be called to the place of safety! Also would like to know how the new "Missing Manual" is coming or other pertinent info for the times we are currently in.
  • James Dean on Why Jesus Can’t Come Back in 2019—or Even Before 2030! (At Least)Hey sir! That was a very nice read! I recently read an article that insisted that the Mayan calendar fiasco in 2012 just started the tribulation and that the end would be this year. Could I get your opinion on that? Thank you so much in advance!
  • Charles Fitzpatrick on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)If knowing what we know to be true which is the threat from God for taking it...you have chosen to drink from the cup of judgement which is mixed to be extremely painful and forever tormenting those who chose to worship the beast or have taken his mark(token) of alliegence to its still taking the damnation upon you ..I don't think theres a temporary taking of this mark and it will somehow disappear or not be held against you because for one thing the act of the will to do so.....acting on choosing to take it hoping God sees and understands whats the difference its still an act of the will . Somethings stirring the heavenlies mostlikely the prince of the air standing above America bringing war and separation, rebellion and chaos...Americas final role is about to begin seems like theres going to be a rough start with us on the field and especially since we backed the idea and wanted to place our embasy there in Jerusalem for years....and all we got was negative responces from the arab community as if we were supposed to treat Israel like dirt....we better keep a firm hold on the Savior here in America because it surely doesn't look good from where I am and Ive been watching and listening to the wind and we are about there. May God continue to help us in Jesus name, to resist the evil one and all that will come against our flesh in the final hours where the smoke of our nations torment ascends to heaven.
  • Mark on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)I think after Christ returns with the saints to rule the earth for a thousand years, He will be ruling over a very small population, at first, as most will have been killed off in all the plagues and 'bowl judgments', the destruction of Babylon the great and the great earthquake that brings all the cities on earth crashing down. Those survivors will likely have all received the 'mark' yet will live long enough to produce children and repopulate the planet...somewhat. "He will rule with a rod of iron" I believe Jesus will rule the earth right out of the book of Moses with all its laws and regulations being enforced to the letter. I also think that for the majority of the 1000 years, peace and security will be the result and people will literally have it better than they ever did, any time, anywhere. Even wild animals will be restrained enough for children to play with them and life spans will be extended quite a bit. Unfortunately it won't be good enough as people will still be resentful, without accepting Christ into their hearts, they will merely be following orders out of fear and not love of Christ to have Him live in them and not just 'over' them. At the end of the 1000 years Satan is let out and leads a revolt that encompasses the entire earth. A number so large it is as the sand of the sea charges for Jerusalem to remove the King who won't let them do as they please and makes them follow the Law. This is when the remaining people and their offspring, who accepted the 'mark', in the old world, are destroyed in holy fire, forever. I doubt that there will be even one person who doesn't join in the last revolt...and its so sad. I also do not believe anyone will be eternally tormented as the symbolic smoke is more of a reminder of what happened and not smoke from literal burning souls. The lake of fire is permanent death for body and soul. The great judgment then commences and how many millions of years that 'Day' will last is anyone's guess. I expect God will patiently take the time to show people exactly why their names do not appear in the book of life...maybe a recorded video of their whole life will be shown to them. I think many will simply and sadly walk right into the 'lake' as they will realize in terrible despair and 'gnashing of teeth' what could've been....
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Eldridge, first, salvation is not as easy as "accepting Christ" like Christianity says; it's much, much harder and requires "loving your neighbor as yourself" (Mt 7:12) which is why Christ repeatedly said "few" ever find this "narrow path." People today are not accountable as ever having had a real "chance" to know the truth because Satan deceives the whole world (Rev 12:9) and we have many factors against us to prevent us from valuing or focusing on God's way of love if we even hear it explained properly. For example, take Hitler. Some joke that he was just a "frustrated painter/artist rejected from art school (twice)" so, in a way, it's the art school who caused WW2! It's a joke, but there's of course a truth behind the joke: people become who they are because of many contributing factors (nature, nurture, rejection, etc.) which in this world under Satan's lies and rule are nearly all against us learning, seeing, understanding or doing God's way of love (Mt 7:12). So, it's important to think about this first 6000 years not as a chance/period to *disqualify* people (based on once having "heard about Christ" or "heard the Gospel") but rather as a period to *qualify* those "few" who against all odds (and obstacles above) *did* come to learn, choose, and live the truth of God. Because it's so hard, this is why we such a special reward of ruling for 1000 years. The rest really were never expected to get saved in this environment. The main purpose of this time, instead of giving a chance to disqualify the wicked, is rather to show that man living Satan's way in rebellion without God doesn't work...yet God always did make it possible for the gifted to still find the truth and live it, as a testimony against the rest who might say, "it isn't fair, we had no chance with the deception and oppression..."
  • Eldridge on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Tim, It does seem right that God would give a second chance to people that had no opportunities in life for what ever reason to accept Christ. But, what about those of us in the USA that have had numerous opportunities? And what about the truly evil people throughout history responsible for the deaths of millions?
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Chris, sorry, it's ERV and RSV version and a couple others that say "against Jerusalem" because they get the same idea from the entire chapter that all nations are gathered there and the LORD fights against them, "even/also Judah." I corrected the version references and added further clarification to the article to help flesh out that Judah is not an exception but among the bad guys at Jerusalem. Thanks.
  • Tim McHyde on Simple Endtime Events ListLorraine, indeed reading Rev 6-8 about Wormwood sounds so bad leaving a doubt anyone could survive (Rev 6:17) outside the protected righteous (Joel 2:32), but then if we keep reading we find out the Beast makes people who are not in "Book of life" take the mark (Rev 13:8). This means many non-protected wicked people survive Wormwood to enter the Great Tribulation. Out of the frying pan, into the fire as it were.
  • lorraine chorak on Simple Endtime Events ListThank you Tim for the new timeline ! I was under the assumption that wormwood destroys the whole planet earth am I wrong in my assumption?
  • Tim McHyde on Psalm 91 Prophecy, Not Promises – “Secret Place” Location FoundMatt, yes, the 144,000 will be among us in Judea until Wormwood hits on Pentecost and then at some point soon after they will sent out.
  • Matt on Psalm 91 Prophecy, Not Promises – “Secret Place” Location FoundTim, Could this verse be speaking about the 144,000? The reason I say this is because of verse 13 which speaks of treading and trampeling the cobra and the serpent. This paralels Luke 10:19 which was said to the 70 (72) which as you have explained mirrors the 144,000. - Matt
  • Toby on Psalm 91 Prophecy, Not Promises – “Secret Place” Location Found"Salvation" from sin is not a ticket to heaven. It is opportunity and license to walk in covenant relationship with God until the end of our physical lives. We still have free will AFTER salvation. We may still choose to walk the broad path to destruction. Only those who overcome and walk in covenant relationship with God will enter heaven. Salvation from sin is a FREE gift. Heaven is dependent entirely on what we choose to do AFTER being saved. Toby
  • Toby on Psalm 91 Prophecy, Not Promises – “Secret Place” Location FoundThe world's financial system, and world order (kosmos) belongs to Elohim's adversary. Satan is the legal owner of it, and all of the finite 3 dimensional universe. Otherwise how could satan have offered it to Jesus in the wilderness, Matt 4:1-11? Why would El use satan's tools, fiat currency, created by the devil himself, to obtain passage to the safe place?! Elohim is bigger than that. I think that likely Elohim will supernaturaly transport those that are faithful...ALL SAVED WHO ARE WALKING IN COVENANT RELATIONSHIP with Him, to the safe place. Not those who rely on satan's DOLLAR or EURO, et el.

  • timothy colvin on Simple Endtime Events ListNow that Isil is a moot point in Syria . The remaining Syrian government can go back to it’s national pastime, harassing Israel. Lately the Syrian government has been beating the war drum saying it wants the Golan heights back. That’s nothing new. Since Al-Assad has no trouble gassing his own people I would imagine a gas attack on Israel to regain the Golan heights is not out of the question.
  • Thomas Garza on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)I really think the following is a "qualifier" as to HOW God will mete out punishment ; "Revelation 14:9-11 — 9 ...If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark... 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God..".----There is an obvious distinction made in this example, imho, that seems to indicate that there are "receivers" and then there are " receivers who worship". I hail from Jewish ancestry in my mom's and dad's DNA Pool, both Sephardic and Ashkenazi. ( recently discovered by DNA analysis) and my family's legacy is comprised of Conversos, Jews who PRETENDED to be Catholic in order to escape the Inquisition's Tribunal's. What I'm getting at is that many of my Jewish ancestors "worshiped" Catholic Style when being watched but when alone, beat their chests in sorrow and continued keeping Torah. We must remember HOW God judges ! He judges after the Heart of Man and not necessarily by what Man SEES. Great article Tim !

  • Chris Warrillow on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Hi, I read Zech.14:14 in the ESV and the KJV and it says, "Even Judah will fight at Jerusalem. And the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be collected, gold, silver, and garments in great abundance. " I cant see where you get the idea that Judah fights against Jerusalem, it says fight at Jerusalem.
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Matt, that rare omission of Bible version (now fixed, thanks) came from a copy/paste error breaking up the citation above of earlier verses of Zech 14 (where if you had looked, it says RSV and "continuing on in the passage...").
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Dougls, I'm not a ancient Greek scholar so I rely on the expertise of those who are that write the many Bible versions I compare, none of which translate it as "144,000s." The better question is why is "144,000" being a literal number as consistently translated such a problem for you? You do realize these are not the only ones God saved, but there is "the Woman" group in Jordan?
  • Matt Williams on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)By the way, what versions are you using? I noticed in your Zechariah 14:16 you left out "And it shall come to pass", "then" was used instead of "that", and on and on in a lot of other verses. Since the NIV is really a disaster, the publisher also publishes the "Satanic Bible" and the "Joys of Gay Sex", it would help to tell people what Versions you are using for all your Scripture references. I have not been on your site long enough to see if you have a "blanket" statement somewhere, maybe it would help us quick visitors, to have a disclaimer on every article where you "back up" your beliefs with Scripture. This is NOT an attack. I write these words with no emotion, just FYI.
  • Dougls DeJong on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)The 144,000. My Pastor in Calif. Jim Spillman, not only knew the Greek......he also taught it at Melody Land school of the Bible in Anaheim , Calif. If you look in the Greek texts ......the 144,000 is plural. There is a s sigma after that number. Therefore it is NOT a literal number. The group is probably the church that never left in the first place.....no pre-trib rapture ! They are not necessarily Jews but the group contains Jews. Besides, the only Jews are the tribes of Benjamin & Judah. There are not 12 tribes of Jews. The 10 tribes took the family name ...ISRAEL. He thought the 144,000 was the "great multitude " in Rev. 7:9 . Your comment ? Doug DJ
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Matthew, thanks for the comment...but I cannot follow your point. We both agree that unbelievers who survived Satan's and God's wrath populate the Millennium. I'm missing how you think a single one of these unbelievers remained alive without first accepting the mark? 😐
  • Matthew Calitz on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Tim I have to disagree I think your efforts to dispel fears is laudable but you may be generating false hope... Zecheriah refers to unbelievers who are not killed in God's wrath, they then populate the millenium bending the knee to Christ due to His rod of iron (Ps 2:9; Rev 2:27; 12:5; 19:15) and will turn on him again at the end when Satan is released for the final battle (Rev 20:7-8) before the great white throne judgement. This explains how we can rule and reign with Christ (Ps 8; Heb 2:5-9; Rev 20:4,6), and it explains Isaiah's prophecy that those who are 100yrs old will be considered young (Isa 65:20)
  • Rick Horn on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Great discernment Tim, I've realized that there must be survivors of the tribulation according to Zechariah 14 for some time, but to know the "mark of the beast" is not fatal, as in complete destruction of ones life, instills hope for loved ones to one day make the right choice of choosing God's way ! Pressing Onward Rick
  • Tim McHyde on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Ernst, you're welcome. Really this study did not come from a desire to make God fair as much as desire to make sense of what does not make sense. A literal interpretation of "smoke rising forever" does not work for me, so I kept reading and found Zechariah and many other passages against eternal torment. You are correct that those who sin get what they deserve and are "without excuse" as Paul says because they "received not a love for the truth." The only question here is what do they deserve "inexcusably" as a reasonable judgment for the choice they made after being raised and living in an environment where the truth was rare and not filling the whole earth (Hab 2:14) and Satan deceives the whole earth (Rev 12:9) in its place? Many think because "I could choose right so everyone can, too, as I'm not special!" not realizing to "receive a love for the truth" does make you special as not everyone does nor can they as Paul said the good news is foolishness to the minds of those perishing (1Co 1:18) which Jesus taught is the majority (Mt 7:13).

  • Ernst on The Mark of the Beast—Proof It’s Reversible (Thank God)Tim, in the article you said that God would not be fair and just to allow those who fall for the Antichrist’s “strong delusion”. In 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 the Bible clearly states that during the end times it is God Himself that sends the “strong delusion” “ so that they will believe the lie and so all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness “ The beast only deceives them after they take his mark (Revelation 19:20) The short answer is ...God sends “a strong delusion “ not the Antichrist. Why ? Because they chose time after time to reject the offer of salvation ( 2 Thessalonians 2:12) They heard the gospel preached by preachers in churches, on Radio, on TV, on Social Media,etc..., they heard the gospel preached , by the 144,000 Jews , they heard the Gospel preached by an Angel ( Rev 14:6) .... “preached to every nation , every tribe, language and people “ . To hear and know the truth and to refuse to obey it is to experience the “wrath of God”. Romans 1:18 “ The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness “. By refusing to repent and receive the free gift of salvation the unbeleiver keeps hardening his heart and eventually ensure God’s condemnation ( there is sure condemnation for all those who are not in Christ Jesus) Now I can appreciate the sense of relief you want to offer regarding a “ reversible” “mark of the Beast”... but the context and meaning of Revelation 14:9-11 seems to indicate otherwise. The context of Rev 14:11 is clearly indicated from Rev 14:10. in Revelation 14:11 we read: “And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” What smoke is the text referring to ? Well from Revelation 14:10 we read .....”He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone...” the smoke mentioned in Revelation 14:11 is clearly a result of the “ fire and brimstone “ mentioned in Revelation 14:10 In Revelation 14:9-10 ...the passage clearly states that those who take the mark of the beast shall experience the wrath of God and “shall be tormented with fire and brimstone “ That’s where the “smoke “ is coming from... ( fire and brimstone) in other words the the fire and brimstone they are being tormented in creates smoke ... smoke forever from a fire and brimstone...that torments than forever. Revelation 14:11 also emphasizes ...”they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name “ This is very graphic.... forever tormented in fire and brimstone with no rest, no break... God’s Love cannot And will not Overrule God’s Justice. God’s Justice demands payment for the penalty of sin, Jesus Christ offered himself as the atonement for sin and for all those who received that offer , all those...benefited from the Love of God While satisfying the Justice Of God. All those who rejected that offer failed to satisfy the Justice Of God and eventually experienced the wrath of God. Thank you for all the hard work you do in the area of escathology . Stay Blessed. In Christ, Ernst
