Part of My History.

Friends, 
I know for sure that this History of part of Germany, where some of my very old, ancestors came from, will bore the heck out of most of you.... LOL !!  Sorry, but it all helps me to know just how brim full of POLITICS and intrigue the old countries were, and I suppose most other places on earth, too.  God sees and records all of these histories and stories of mankind !   Ha!  There is no getting away, or escaping the "Eyes of the Lord", and there will be no rock, cave, or crag to hide under in the fast coming day of Judgment !  

The old, true story of the "Volga-Germans" was told to we little children, and carried on thru the hundreds of years, and this extra bit of info that I have pasted to my blog, as record, only helps me to put the pieces of the puzzle together, with the surprises of:  "Ahhhh  Sooooo !" and "Ahhh-- Ha!"
      But what does it really matter in the long term picture of humankind, and the blood sacrifice of or Lord, Jesus Christ ??   IT  DOESN'T MATTER ONE BIT IF A MAN KNOWS WHERE HE CAME FROM, OR NOT ----  IF HE   DOESN'T KNOW THE LORD !!   And by "know the Lord"  I mean knows, understands the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ, and confesses it publically, and believes it in his heart !   Just read the 2 books of John, and Romans, as I always say...  although I prefer the book of Matthew.    I just want to be remembered in God's Book of Life !   Period.    The rest of life don't mean a hill of beans, IMHO.  
        And as far as my people [ about  25,000 people] migrated to Russia for a  while, to get away from all the goofy politics of that era/ time frame --- and then coming to America, thru Ellis Island, the RIGHT WAY,  PEOPLE DO THAT ALL THE TIME, to make a better life for themselves and their families.  Freedom is what my people/  Family Tree wanted.  Freedom to worship, live, work, own their own land and breathe the fresh American air !!
    And I'll be dipped in 'Honey' if I will ever give up MY FREEDOM,  because I paid my dues many times over !!   "For those who fight for it,  Freedom has a flavor the protected will NEVER taste !"   And if people want to call me a 'political activist,' a hard head, a crazy, hot headed, Disabled  Vietnam Veteran, and Conservative, or a Bible thumper, go for it !   I will [and always have] obey all the Laws of the U.S. Constitution --- IF they do not conflict with God's Laws.   But if Caesar wants my head, as this world goes to the devil --- go try to take it, but please use a sharp axe or sword, or I will use MINE !!  The scriptures tell me that if I lose my head for the Lord-- I shall gain a gold crown in heaven as a Martyr.    I am age 65, and have seen a full, very active, fruitful life, and helped a few people know the Lord along the way.... [All  praise goes to God....of course].  Smile !

Have a great,  safe,  Day/ Holiday !

The Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin was a territory in Northern Germany held by the House of Mecklenburg residing at Schwerin. It was a sovereign member state of the German Confederation and became a federated state of the North German Confederation and finally of the German Empire in 1871.

Geography[edit]

Like its predecessor, the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, the Schwerin lands upon the incorporation of the extinct Duchy of Mecklenburg-Güstrow in 1701 comprised the larger central and western parts of the historic Mecklenburg region. The smaller southeastern part was held by the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz branch of the grand ducal house, who also ruled over the lands of the former Bishopric of Ratzeburg in the far northwest.
The grand duchy was bounded by the Baltic coast in the north and the Prussian province of Pomerania in the northeast, where the border with the Hither Pomeranian (formerly Swedish Pomeranian) region ran along the Recknitz river, the Peene, and Kummerower See. In the south it bordered with the Prussian province of Brandenburg (with the exclaves of Rossow and Schönberg near Wittstock) and in the southwest with the Amt Neuhaus district held by the Kingdom of Hanover, which was incorporated into the Prussian province of Hanover after the Austro-Prussian War in 1866. Likewise in the west, the Duchy of Holstein was incorporated into the Schleswig-Holstein Province, after which Mecklenburg was almost entirely surrounded by Prussian territory.
Beside the capital at Schwerin, Mecklenburg-Schwerin comprised the coastal cities of Rostock and Wismar, which had been held by the Swedish crown until 1803, as well as the inland towns of Parchim and Güstrow.

History[edit]

In the early years of the French Revolutionary Wars Duke Frederick Francis I of Mecklenburg-Schwerin had remained neutral, and in 1803 he regained Wismar, which was pawned to him from Sweden. After Napoleon's victory at the Battle of Austerlitz and the final dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806, he joined the Confederation of the Rhine by a treaty of 22 March 1808. Napoleon, in preparation for the French invasion of Russia in 1812, disregarded this alliance; he offered the duchy to the Swedish heir apparent Jean Bernadotte for his support. Duke Frederick Francis was the first member of the confederation to abandon Napoleon, to whose armies he had sent a contingent, and in the following War of the Sixth Coalition he fought against the troops of the First French Empire —with the result that his new allies, Prussia and Russia, now offered his duchy to the Kingdom of Denmark. Instead, Denmark was promised the adjacent lands of Swedish Pomerania by the 1814 Peace of Kiel and the rule of the Mecklenburg dukes remained inviolate.
At the 1815 Congress of Vienna, Frederick Francis joined the newly established German Confederation, and like his Strelitz cousin Charles II, was elevated to the title of a "Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin". In 1819 serfdom was finally abolished in his dominions. The Mecklenburg governance was still determined by the 1755 inheritance agreement (Landesgrundgesetzlicher Erbvergleich), which upheld the medieval hierarchy of the estates, which largely affected the social and economic development of both grand duchies. During the revolutions of 1848, the duchy witnessed a considerable agitation in favour of a liberal constitution. On 10 October 1849 Grand Duke Frederick Francis II (1823–1883) granted a new Basic law elaborated by his First Minister Ludwig von Lützow. In the subsequent reaction of the Mecklenburg nobility, backed by the Strelitz grand duke George, all the concessions which had been made to democracy were withdrawn and further restrictive measures were introduced in 1851 and 1852.
In the dispute over neighbouring Holstein which culminated in the 1866 Austro-Prussian War, Frederick Francis II supported the Kingdom of Prussia, whom he aided with Mecklenburg-Schwerin soldiers. His grand duchy began to pass more and more under Prussian influence. In 1867 he joined the North German Confederation and the Zollverein. In the Franco-Prussian War (1870–1871), Prussia again received valuable assistance from Grand Duke Frederick Francis II, who was an ardent advocate of German unity and held a high command in her armies. In the course of the German unification in 1871, Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Mecklenburg-Strelitz became states of the German Empire. There was now renewed agitation for a more democratic constitution, and the German Reichstag parliament gave some countenance to this movement.
In 1897 Frederick Francis IV (b. 1882) succeeded his father Frederick Francis III (1851–1897) as the last grand duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. In 1907 the Grand Duke promised a constitution to his subjects. The duchy had always been under a feudal system of government, the grand duke having the executive entirely in his hands (though acting through ministers). The duchy shared a diet (Landtag), which met for a short session each year. At other times they were represented by a committee consisting of the proprietors of knights' estates (Rittergüter), known as the Ritterschaft, and the Landschaft, or burgomasters of certain towns. Mecklenburg-Schwerin returned six members to the Reichstag. Upon the suicide of his cousin Grand Duke Adolphus Frederick VI on 23 February 1918, Frederick Francis served as regent of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Shortly afterwards, on 14 November, he was forced to renounce the Mecklenburg throne in the course of the German Revolution. The grand duchy turned into the Free State of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, a federated state of the Weimar Republic.
Thereby ended nearly eight centuries of continuous rule (only interrupted by Albrecht von Wallenstein from 1628 to 1630) by the originally Obotrite (West Slavic) Mecklenburg dynasty, beginning with their progenitor Prince Niklot (d. 1160). Until 1918 the grand duke was styled as "Prince of the Wends".

Evil Unmasked.

I trust Hal Lindsey   !!


Friends,
Perhaps there are others like me, who feel that they have come to know the Lord Jesus by now, 9-1-14,  but feel some pangs of remorse in that we wish that we COULD HAVE DONE A LOT MORE WITH OUR PAST LIVES IN THE SERVICE OF THE LORD !   Some of that regret is actually good, as we repent and straighten out our lives and bring ourselves in to keeping to KJV Biblical standards now, and trying to repair things.    But dwelling on it forever is NOT good, but most likely the devil trying to make Jesus ransom sacrifice seem worthless, that we some how need to work our way to heaven !  Nope!  We are now covered by Grace and total forgiveness, past, present and future!!   Don't forget that, please!   But...   every day that we breathe, we can at least attempt and plan to do "good works" that share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  

I like and prefer:   Bible Tracts, Inc.  P.O. Box 188 Bloomington, IL  61702-0188.   They are free,  but I like to donate-- to help defray the cost of printing and paper, etc. 

I admit that I read too much disgusting "News" about beheadings all over the world and ISIS that is threatening Christians, and worse.  Although much is true, the devil uses this stuff to scare we Christians and try to tear us away from doing our Christian duty, IMHO.     "My System" which I have revealed to certain people, works for me, and it includes much Bible reading, research, study, and memorization,  besides meeting other Christians at church, and over the InterNet.   But let's say that suddenly we are stripped of those things and alone.   What then???   The more we know God's Word   [The Bible] -- the better off we shall be!   Remember one thing, that God will never let us endure something that is too much for us, and even DEATH is a "way out."   Are we not just so tired of living in fear and hearing the News?   Soldiers train for battle -- and We Christians should too!   Questions?  Email or call me.   

It sure seemed like today's sermon at church was "pointed AT me !"  And yes, my conscience bothers me, but that's just my way, and I believe that the HS [Holy Spirit] convicts me... and that is good too.   Just continue to keep things balanced.  
    This morning at church, we all prayed for sick and injured people again, before the main meetings.   Sorry folks,  but I just get that sick feeling that we are living in a PARADISE here  right now, and much worse things will start to fly.  Just pray.

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman



August 29th, 2014
This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report'
Some weeks it is more difficult than others to prepare "The Hal Lindsey Report." This has been one of those weeks.

Because we are reporting on the threat ISIS poses to the Middle East and the world, we've spent a great deal of time investigating the activities of that group, as well as others. That means that I and my staff have spent that time exposed to the unbelievable brutality and cruelty currently on display in Iraq and Syria.

I'm sure you've seen various images of that brutality on some of the nightly newscasts, but when you begin to focus on the sheer depths of the depravity, you enter a realm that can only be described as spiritual darkness.

All of us, from myself to my researcher (who, at great personal discomfort, examined all of the different terrorist beheading videos) to my producer/director, even to my video editor, have experienced a level of spiritual warfare that comes along only once in a while.

I believe that's because we are not witnessing merely the rise of a political or ideological movement, or the carnage of a messy civil war, but we are seeing the emergence of a new manifestation of evil in our world. That's why I've called the first story on this week's program: "Evil Unmasked." It is unbridled evil.

The recent brutal murder of James Foley seems to have finally caught the world's attention. But it may be too late. As destructive as it is, the terrorist-army steamroller that we know as ISIS ultimately may not be as important as the Islamic threat that it is invigorating across the globe.

Folks, this is truly Satanic, demonic activity masquerading as sectarian violence. And don't let the analysts -- or the administration -- mislead you. No matter what the U.S. State Department insists, ISIS does represent a religion: Islam. The chaos, mayhem, destruction, devastation, suffering, and grief are the products of that demented ideology followed to its purposed conclusion.

Normally, in this space I only give you glimpses (and sometimes some background) of what you will see on this week's television program. But this week, I want to share with you the comments of Archbishop Emil Nona, the Chaldean Catholic archbishop of Mosul, Iraq. He issues a warning so strong and alarming that I want you to read it here, too.

Archbishop Nona was interviewed shortly after fleeing Mosul with thousands of other Christians. When ISIS captured Mosul (with over 1.5 million people, it's the second largest city in Iraq) they offered the Christians a choice: convert to Islam, leave the city and their homes, or die. Thousands fled, many died. Some were actually crucified.

In fact, on June 15 no Christian services were conducted in Mosul for the first time in 1,600 years!

The Archbishop told the world: "Our sufferings today are the prelude of those that you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future.... Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here. You must consider again our reality in the Middle East, because you are welcoming in your countries an ever-growing number of Muslims.... Islam does not say that all men are equal. Your values are not their values. If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed into your home."

Strong words, but prophetic words.

What makes all of this even more chilling is that there are thousands of European, British, Australian, and American citizens fighting for ISIS in Iraq and Syria. All of these battle-hardened jihadis carry passports that will allow them to easily return to their home countries or enter the United States.

Make no mistake, jihad will someday come home to Europe and America, just as Archbishop Nona has warned.

Maybe sooner than we think.

Folks, Paul wrote to Timothy that "in the last days perilous times will come." (2 Timothy 3:1) A few verses later he warned, "evil men... will grow worse and worse...." Those days are here.

Our brothers and sisters in Christ are being beheaded and crucified. And soon, we will face a society that demands that we forsake our Biblical values and accept its Godless dictates or suffer the consequences. Eventually, those consequences will also include death.

Now is the time to prepare for those days. If you have not done so already, believe that Jesus Christ is who He says He is; acknowledge that you are a sinner; accept the free gift of pardon which He died on Calvary to purchase for us; and, with the help of His Holy Spirit, turn from your old life and follow Him.

Then you can face the uncertainty of the days ahead knowing that when Jesus calls us from this earth to join Him in heaven, you'll be ready to go.

God Bless,

The Full Number !

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/

tschuckman@aol.com

Hi Friends,
Sometimes I wish that I could transfer my entire Blog posts onto paper, like a book!   It  would make a great "reference book" to help me, and others!   I do post some things for my own memory too, I hope ya'll know.   [Smile].  Because,  if in deed, "The Full Number" is truthful and accurate --- and I believe it is, that should/ would sound the clarion for all of us to work harder in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ all over the earth !!    What say YOU ??   I am doing that to the best of my limited ability now days, with my Bible Tracts, mouth, and humble blog,  may God help me, please.   I always keep a few in my wallet, folded up and ready to whip out, along with any tip to people who help me, etc.  

As for the U.P. where we live,  I fear that the Fall/ Winter are coming TOO SOON, now, with cool air temps already here... Ha!    I love what the sun does to my skin, heals it so nice, etc.   Yup,  Everyone U.P. here grabs Summer firmly to squeeze every ray out of it, because it doesn't last that long, IMHO.   The cold Winters are long and harsh,  but these rugged Norsemen U.P. here are hearty and weather it well,  good, moral, Conservative, Christian people !  They are a kind, helpful, friendly, Patriotic breed, that I have come to love, and basically where my fine, beautiful wife, Terri, comes from.  
      Friends,   I well know that there has been plenty of "Fear-mongering" on-line, and even in the News lately, comments, and flash alerts, etc.   For what it's worth, I just stocked up again, with "Healing Herbs", from Nature's Way, and Vitacost, like Cinnamon,  Boswellia --  for Arthritis pain, etc.,  Fennel, Eyebright, Turmeric Extract, Etc.   I forgot to buy a few, like: Magnesium complex, for the heart and muscles, but I did remember, Lutein, for the eyes!

Two buddies from church had planned a special event this morning with me too, but it looks like RAIN, again...  80% chance, on Saturday...Ha!   It's so nice to have a few  friends with wooded land up here, etc.   But the mosquitoes U.P. here in the Summertime are fierce !!   The ones we had in Vietnam were sometimes an inch long and carried Malaria...the female species,   LOL.  
       I don't know if I "let the cat out of the bag,  but I recently got my Ancestry.com  "Ethnicity Estimate" back with some surprising INFO !!   It's personal, but I can say that it's 98% European, with some "Trace Regions" strange inclusions....   but if you are a History buff and Geography and Bible guy, like I am,  it all makes good sense how peoples and tribes migrated thru different areas.    and we ALL came from Adam and Eve-- and then again from Noah, so it all makes sense to me.   Let's just say that there is a little Viking in me too.   My wife laughed at me...   But,  what does it even matter if you and me are children of the Most High God in the Universe ? ? ?   If we are "Saved" it does not matter one iota !  Which brings me to the main short article I just posted here.

Salvation was FIRST offered to the Jews, in Jesus' time, and that was the 'Grand Plan' from the beginning, right after Adam and Eve messed up, BIG TIME, in the Garden of Paradise!!   Two of the same rivers that ran thru that Paradise are still in existence, in modern day Iraq, I believe.   But the Jews refused Jesus' ransom blood sacrifice, so that God ripped it away from them and gave it / offered it to the Gentiles, and that time is fast ending.... until we are on the edge of that termination...  leading to the Rapture of Saints, right around the corner !!  Dear Friends and Readers,  RIGHT NOW is the time to climb on ship before the doors of the Ark are SEALED for good !   I just watched the movie:  Noah, last night, after I bought it from WalMart, and it wasn't that bad, although they did take too many liberties with the scriptures, as Hollywood always does.   The Genesis account says that only EIGHT HUMANS WERE SAVED ON/ INSIDE OF THE ARK [Ark simply means a chest, or oblong box].   But I am not going to ruin the movie for others.   I enjoyed it for what it was..  entertainment.  

My  Left leg/ shin wound is STILL slowly healing, much to my [and my Male RN, Steve, the VA Wound Specialist, in IM- VAMC] frustration !    He is trying everything under the sun to help me, and I am trying to obey his orders.    Thank You all, for your prayers and well wishes!   Please, also, pray for the recovery of my friend, George, the Aviator, with his bad knees--injuries, too.   The vast majority of MY friends, are looking forward to the Rapture !   If so, then WHY should we put any faith or trust in human efforts toward "Peace and Security ??"    Beyond personal defense, and property "protection", and storing up a few cans of pork and beans, dimes, water,  Imodium, Herbs, and quarters, etc.,   we ought to be placing our trust in the Lord !

See:   The Full Number.

The Full Number



Q.  I have been studying the Book of Revelation lately and I believe it says somewhere in there I can’t find now about the full number coming in. It says when the full number of Gentiles are killed in Gods name is when the end will begin. Is this true? Are we waiting on a full number of people to die in Gods name for the rapture to happen?

A.  In Romans 11:25 Paul said the Jews have been hardened in part until the full number of Gentiles have come in. I interpret this to mean when the predetermined number of believers in the Church has been reached, the rapture will come, Israel’s eyes will be opened to God again, and Daniel’s 70th Week will begin.
In Rev. 6:11 God tells the first post Church martyrs to be patient until the number of their fellow servants to be martyred has been completed. Then He will avenge their blood.
It sounds like you’ve combined parts of these two verses into one.

How did it Happen? Septic Shock.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/

tschuckman@aol.com


THIS IS WHAT I HAD FROM MY NASTY INFECTION FROM MY MOTORCYCLE MISHAP IN MAY 2014 !!  The trouble is:   People like me never figure that it could happen to them !!   If it were not for my smart, beautiful wife, Terri's quick responses that fateful morning, I would have been dead in the next 24 hours !   We always learn the true nature of things retrospectively....  and that early morning at the  hospital, I could not remember my name, rank, or RA [Regular Army dog tag number] number, etc., nor the month and year !   That was very scary for me.   The ICU was a nightmare, with a witch running it, an RN, who needed a shower with soap, and a course in proper manners, etc.    But the very next day, I pulled thru, and got back about 99% of my brains back, and had some very kind, smart nurses taking care of me.
       I sold that goofy old 650 Kaw., on off the road motorcycle 3 days latter after the accident, and got most of my money back.  It was poor judgment on my part to pick out the wrong kind of bike, thinking I was still age 21... lol.  

Beware:  Septic Shock,  It's a killer !  Praise the Lord,  Jesus Christ.


Septic Shock

Written by Shannon Johnson
Medically Reviewed by George Krucik, MD
 
Part 1 of 6: Overview

Septic Shock

Septic shock is what happens as a complication of an infection where toxins can initiate a full-body inflammatory response. It often occurs in people who are elderly or have a weakened immune system.
It is thought that the inflammation resulting from sepsis causes tiny blood clots to form, which can block oxygen and nutrients from reaching vital organs. As a result, the organs fail, causing a profound septic shock. This may cause a drop in blood pressure and may result in death. In fact, septic shock is the most common cause of death in intensive care units in the United States (Fitch, et al., 2002).
Doctors have identified three stages of sepsis:
  • sepsis, when an infection reaches the bloodstream and causes inflammation throughout the body
  • severe sepsis, which occurs when infection disrupts blood flow to the brain or kidneys, leading to organ failure. Blood clots cause gangrene (tissue death) in the arms, legs, fingers, and toes.
  • septic shock, when blood pressure drops significantly. This can lead to respiratory, heart, or organ failure and death.

Part 2 of 6: Symptoms

What Are the Symptoms of Septic Shock?

If you recently had surgery, have been released home, and experience any of the symptoms below, immediate medical treatment may be necessary. The earlier that treatment with antibiotics and intravenous (IV) fluids can be administered, the greater a person’s chance for surviving septic shock.
Symptoms of septic shock require that only one of the following signs be present:
  • patches of discolored skin
  • noticeably lower amounts of urination
  • confusion
  • problems breathing
  • abnormal heart functions, such as palpitations or rapid heart rate
  • chills due to fall in body temperature
  • extreme weakness or lightheadedness
Part 3 of 6: Causes and Risk Factors

What Causes Septic Shock?

Sepsis can be caused by any type of infection: bacterial, fungal, or viral. Bacterial infections often develop while a person is still in the hospital. Sepsis commonly originates from:
  • abdominal or digestive system infections
  • lung infections like pneumonia, bronchitis, or lower respiratory tract infections, which are responsible for around 25 percent of cases (NHS)
  • urinary tract infection
  • reproductive system infection
Certain factors such as age or prior illness can put you at greater risk for developing septic shock. This condition is especially prevalent in newborns, older people, pregnant women, and those with suppressed immune systems because of HIV or cancer treatments. In addition, the following factors will also make it more likely that a person develop septic shock:
  • major surgery or long-term hospitalization (increased risk of bacteria)
  • diabetes
  • injection drug use
  • ICU patients that are already very sick
  • exposure to invasive devices such as intravenous catheters or breathing tubes, which can introduce bacteria into the body
Part 4 of 6: Diagnosis

Which Tests Are Used to Diagnose Septic Shock?

If you have symptoms of sepsis, the next step is to conduct tests to determine how far along the infection is. Diagnosis is often made with a blood test. This type of test can determine if any of the following factors are present:
  • bacteria in the blood
  • problems with clotting due to low platelet count
  • excess waste products in the blood
  • abnormal liver or kidney function
  • decreased amount of oxygen
  • electrolyte imbalance
Depending on your symptoms and the results of the blood test, there are other tests that a doctor may want to perform to determine the source of your infection, including:
  • urine test
  • wound secretion test (if you have an open area that looks infected)
  • mucus secretion test (to see what type of germ is behind the infection)
  • brain and spinal fluid test
In cases where the source of the infection is not clear from the tests above, a doctor might want to get an internal view of your body using one of the following:
  • X-rays, which allow a doctor to get a good view of the lungs
  • computed tomography (CT) scans, which give the doctor a view of possible infections in the appendix, pancreas, or bowel areas
  • ultrasound, which allows a doctor to view infections in the gallbladder or ovaries
  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which gives doctors a view of any soft tissue infections, such as spinal abscesses
Part 5 of 6: Treatment

How Is Septic Shock Treated?

The earlier sepsis is diagnosed and treated, the more likely you are to survive. Once sepsis is diagnosed, you will most likely be admitted to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for treatment. Doctors use a number of medications to treat septic shock, including:
  • intravenous antibiotics to fight infection
  • vaso pressure medications – drugs that constrict blood vessels and help increase blood pressure
  • insulin for blood sugar stability
  • corticosteroids to help with inflammation
Large amounts of IV fluids will be administered to prevent dehydration and help increase blood pressure. A respirator for breathing may also be necessary. Surgery may be performed to remove a source of infection, such as draining a pus-filled abscess or removing infected tissue.
Part 6 of 6: Long-Term Outlook

Long-Term Outlook for Septic Shock

Septic shock is a severe condition, and more than 50 percent of cases will result in death (NHS). Your chances of surviving septic shock will depend on the source of the infection, how many organs have been affected, and how soon you received treatment after your


Hi Guys,
I wonder just how many of the people that read this humble web site come here to read "MY WORDS" -- than leave the page without reading the rest of the text that I first found important enough to cut and paste....  because I thought originally that it was set and framed in a 'better way than I could frame it.'   Hummmm.   Anyway,  that is why I think happens to my own wife, as she see much of my material to be "DRY" and too heavy for her to wade thru...  lol.     Let's face it, friends,  MOST OF THE WORLD feels that same way !   Sorry.    Even folks that attend church tend to sleep half way thru it.  They lack discipline, and then wonder how and why they get caught flat footed when a dire emergency knocks on the door, or their community.
     The VA doc has got me taking another oral antibiotic again, as they found some bacteria on my skin that they are afraid might migrate back into the leg wound....   dang !  The nasty Med is called:  CEPHALEXIN  500 mg., and I do believe that it has also given me the runs!!   I hate the runs!   You are afraid to pass gas, if you know what I mean...  duh.    My VAMC "Wound Specialist," Steve G, has become a friend of mine, and he is so helpful, kind and professional, besides smart as a whip, and well respected among his peers, IMHO.   He believes that I am making progress,  but ever so slowly in my opinion.   There is so much contagious DISEASE out in the world these days !!    And I am NOT trying to play, "Chicken Little... and the sky is falling, friends !   But we humans are in line with several "Killer" situations, each by themselves with enough power and might to wipe most of us out!  
        That is why I am NOT ashamed to cling to my gun and my KJV bible,  for comfort and joy !!   And my last post:   "SWEETER THAN HONEY" changed most of my personal opinion about "Preppers", etc., not totally dumping those ideas,  but putting them in their proper prospective.   Because God has our backs, is in full control, I believe that He wants us to depend on Him more so than to place all the emphasis on OURSELVES.  Just my opinion.

And I just received in the mail:   THE BIBLE'S HEALING CODE REVEALED.  --  by Brian Chambers.  Great Info !

How Did It Happen?



Q.  I know I am saved, but I don’t know how it happened. I am hoping you can help me understand.  Paul tells us we were included in Christ when we heard the word of truth the Gospel of our salvation, and having believed, we were sealed with the Holy Spirit, the guarantee of our inheritance. I believe and have accepted this.  However, in 1 Cor. 2:14 Paul also said “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned” and in 1 Cor. 12:3   “… and no one can say ‘Jesus is Lord’ except in the Holy Spirit.”  Do we first need to seek the truth about Jesus? Does the Holy Spirit then come to us, work on us, and enable us to truly believe in Jesus? Is it only when we finally accept the whole truth that we are sealed with the Holy Spirit?

A.  Ephesians 1:13-14 gives us the order.  First, we heard the Gospel and believed it.  Then the Lord sent the Holy Spirit as a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance.  Paul confirmed this in 1 Cor. 2:12 when he said we’ve been given the Spirit of God to help us understand the things that God has freely given us.  In other words He gave us eternal life and then sent His Spirit to help us understand what he had given us.
When you were first saved you didn’t understand everything that meant, but you were still saved.  Now that you are saved the Holy Spirit is helping you understand all that you’ve been given and as you do you experience a deeper level of belief.
In 1 Cor. 2:14 Paul was describing the difficulty of discussing religion with an unbeliever.  Without the Holy Spirit he can’t understand it and thinks it’s foolishness.  In 1 Cor. 12:3 he said that only a believer can truthfully say, “Jesus is Lord” because only a believer wants Jesus to be Lord.
