Rapture Reference.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Folks and Friends!
Things are looking a bit brighter today, even in our frigid 'tundra' in the Great Northern Woods- WI. Sharon feels better, and I will visit and take another plate of food to her in a few hours after her kids and grand kids come to our house to visit me and eat some prepared turkey food, etc. The lady doctor [Dr. Anna Silenvi -- and she is one of the GOOD doctors!!] who assisted in Sharon's traumatic open heart operation last March actually called me a few minutes ago and explained in detail where we are right now and what course of action we MUST take to help me wife have a near quality life from now on. A strict diet! It will be hard working with Sharon who is set in her ways of eating junk food and too much salt-- but I must be firm-- yet loving, or else she will wind up back in the hospital again, and soon! Believe it or not, that's hard on me too, and stresses me out big time.

I love the way some skilled, knowledgeable people break things down for me to understand, even as I consider myself well educated and well read. The following article/ conversation really helped me understand the term, "RAPTURE." I NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT, so I don't err in my posts and in my thinking. I enjoy reading and research, especially in my retired life when I can't walk so good because of bad knees, back and feet. The big trade off is that most of us don't reach maturity, wisdom and understanding until we get old.... and that's sad because we could have spared ourselves a lot of pain, goof ups and misery. Personally, I would have done things a lot different if I HAD KNOWN the things I do now. I would have married a godly, biblical, but sexy girl in the beginning... LOL ! but when I got back from the war in South East Asia, I was all wound up, hurting, and a bit crazy. The Army failed in not 'deprogramming' the combat troops that came home with PTSD, etc. But back in 1970 they didn't even have a name for that stuff. Just like right now our troops come back from intense combat in Iraq and Afganistan and need to 'chill out' and have ALL their needs attended to! IMHO, the VA is failing them, just as they failed we Vietnam Vets years ago. Politics and money...... A good Christian woman can persuade and help a man BIG TIME to run the right course in life, IMHO. God bless the gentle women who have endured and helped their combat weary Combat Veterans husbands !

Bad things happen to both the good and bad people [of course] but much can be prevented by making good decisions in life.

I hope you enjoy the short article as much as I have. It gives me a good incentive of walking the right path. There is a method to my madness. And from all that has gone down lately, I have MUCH to be thankful to God for! PTL.

By Nathan JonesDr. David Reagan and myself recently got together for a Christ in Prophecy TV interview to talk about how some people don't believe the word "Rapture" can be found in the Bible. If you were wondering yourself just where one can find the exact reference — read on!Dr. Reagan: When I think of the promises of God, I always think of something the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2:9,
