Escape from an apostate church through knowledge of Scriptures.
WHAT IS THIS WEB SITE ABOUT?
My name is Tim Hanline, and until 2003, I was a priest in the NewApostolicChurch. Having grown up in the NewApostolicChurch, attending Sunday school, religious instructions classes, confirmation classes, countless local and district ministers' meetings, I was thoroughly taught the church's doctrine. I was a youth leader, a Sunday school teacher, a religious instruction teacher, a confirmation teacher, a choir director, a district choir director, a deacon, and eventually a priest in this church. My family's heritage in this church goes back four generations.
However, I was compelled to resign from the NewApostolicChurch after studying the Scriptures independently. Through this study, the Holy Spirit revealed the evil and rebellion that exists in the NewApostolicChurch.
This web site is intended to relay Scriptural knowledge to the members of the NewApostolicChurch so that they too can be saved from this destructive cult. As with any cult, one must obey the leadership in "childlike obedience of faith." Members and especially ministers in the New Apostolic Church who defy or in any way show disloyalty to the church's leadership are generally maligned and vilified. As with virtually all cults, the New Apostolic Church teaches that the highest virtue on can have is unconditional obedience and loyalty to the apostles, the leaders of the church.
However, the Scriptures teach exactly the opposite!
Scriptures teach us not to believe every spirit, but to prove the spirits, whether they are of Elohim, because many false prophets have gone out into the world (1 John 4:1). Scriptures also tell us that false prophets will be sent to us in order to test us (Deuteronomy 12:3). Scriptures also tell us that false prophets are deceived by the Most High specifically for their disobedience, and He will destroy those prophets and even destroy those that heed them (Ezekiel 14:9).
Through intensive study of the Scriptures, the Holy Spirit -- the Spirit of Truth -- has revealed many problems that exist in the New Apostolic Church, and these are the same problems that exist in many other Christian denominations. These problems arise when men, instead of practicing and teaching righteousness as defined in the Scriptures, pretend to themselves that they have more authority than the Scriptures. The apostles of the NewApostolicChurch claim apostolic authority and also claim the exclusive ability to understand and interpret Scriptures, which is quite a paradox considering that these same NAC apostles hardly know the Scriptures at all! The NAC apostles also claim to have the authority to contradict Scriptures, as they propogate the doctrine that they alone speak via the power of the Holy Spirit.
These problems will be discussed in this web site.
Just as Ezekiel was to sound the trumpet to warn the people of imminent danger (Ezekiel 33:1-11), this web site has been published in order to warn members of the New Apostolic Church of the mortal danger that they are in by submitting to the false authority and errant teachings of the New Apostolic Church apostles. The principles described in this web site apply to all other Christian denominations that marginalize the Scriptures as well. The Word of the Most High has been revealed in the Scriptures, and it is important to realize that any person or any church cannot be correct if they teach what is inconsistent with the Scriptures. We will discuss how to identify false teachers and also how to walk the narrow way of truth that leads to salvation.
We are praying that each member of the NAC and other errant denominations will not only be filled with a hunger for the Word found in the Scriptures but will also study them daily. In 2 Timothy 2:15, Paul's writes, "Study to shew thyself approved unto Yah, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." As faithful servants of Messiah, we must all study His Word in order to rightly understand His word and not be put to shame.

“If it had not been יהוה who was on our side,”
Let Yisra’ĕl now say;
“If it had not been יהוה who was on our side,
When men rose up against us,
“Then they would have swallowed us alive,
In their burning rage against us;
“Then the waters would have overwhelmed us,
The stream would have gone over our being;
“Then the proud waters Would have gone over our being.”
Blessed be יהוה, Who did not give us as prey to their teeth.
Our being has escaped like a bird From the snare of the trappers;
The snare was broken, and we have escaped.
Our help is in the Name of יהוה, Maker of the heavens and earth.
NAC Children Are Being Attacked by Demons
Some former members of the New Apostolic Church report that as children they were tormented and frightened by demons disguising themselves as "souls from the departed." Rather than trying to protect them, their parents boasted about their children being spiritually gifted. As we first examine the plain testimony of Scriptures and then the testimonies of these former members, it is clear that the New Apostolic Church leaders have deceived their members into communing with demons. Their "Service for the Departed" is not ministering to "souls in eternity" but is actually inviting demonic attack.
I recently happened upon this video of Chief Apostle Wilhelm Leber.
The New Apostolic Church believes that their "apostles" alone act in Christ's stead. They claim that the apostles of the NAC are the true apostles of Jesus Christ and thus possess apostolic authority. This claim is false, and we know this because the Chief Apostle ministry has uttered false prophecies and has also called the credibility of Scriptures in to question.
Feeling a great burden of my own to inform the members of the NAC of the mortal danger that they are in by following the unscriptural NAC doctrine, I have the following video response.
Be assured that Yah's truth is always available and always fresh. Yah's truth -- THE TRUTH -- can be found at any moment of any day by simply picking up and reading that best selling yet seldom read book -- the HOLY BIBLE. These are indeed dangerous times, and it is time to turn off your television, turn off your computer, turn off your radio, and start questioning your religious leaders. It is time to understand what Yah actually expects from us. It is time to understand that the only way we can show Him love is to obey His commandments. It is time to understand that the doctrine of a pre-tribulation rapture or "Day of the First Resurrection" a it is taught in the NAC is a lie. It is time to start judging right from wrong according to righteous standards. It is time to start studying anew the HOLY SCRIPTURES. If you do not have a daily Bible study regiment in your life, just consider yourself fuel for the lake of fire at this point -- unless you start to study today. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, pick up that book and read it from cover to cover, as it explains EVERYTHING regarding what is happening in our world to day. More importantly, it explains in detail how to live rightly according to Yah's expectations to successfully navigate through this deepening tribulation that we find ourselves in.
The beast, as described in the books of Daniel and Revelation, is working tirelessly to bring about chastisement upon those who have refused to believe and obey the commandments of Yah. Most people in this world today already have the dreaded mark of the beast and do not even realize it. Today, this beast exerts a great deal of influence (if not total control) over world finance, medicine, food, government and, of course, religion. Just as this beast decimated Judah and Israel during the prophet Jeremiah's day, this same beast is actively working today, in fulfillment of Bible prophecy, to bring complete ruin and desolation upon us all because of our collective disobedience, but you will never understand this unless you study your Bible carefully.
It is not difficult to understand the Bible, but you must pick it up and read it from cover to cover several times.
The following video gives some introductory information regarding what can be learned of this beast by reading the pages of Scriptures. The video is made by my dear friend Ariyah ben Naseek, who leads a local Hebraic assembly, and he gives an introduction as to the identity of this beast.
