Bedtime Post.

Tom's Journal.

<<<> I know that I am taking a big risk in saying this and if I lose some friends-- all that means is they were not true blue friends to begin with. 'I am proud of my service to my country, America, but I would NOT die for America anymore. I still support and defend the U.S. Constitution, my Christians brothers and family... but I have seen and studied too much these past few years to know and believe that God has left the American scene because of the complete corruption, shredding of the U.S. Constitution- liberties and freedoms, with greed, murder of innocent unborn children, over overwhelmingly [the majority--just like ancient Sodom] voting for people who support and promote the Sodomite, so-called Gay agenda, evolution lies in schools and threats to our Christian life/ way of life! It is not God's divine nature to "bless those who curse and dishonor Him, even as He has been so patient, forgiving and merciful to those who do repent-- and God desires ALL to repent and embrace the Son, Jesus, but the bible tells us that FEW actually will repent, and even the so-called Christians-- and that is just a 'buzz word' now days. He must keep His promises [as always in the Bible--recorded for all to read] to save His own Christian warriors and true believers-- and to do that He must punish the wicked incorrigible God hating people. There IS A LIMIT TO GOD'S KIND,GENTLE MERCIES and His sword may strike at any time now! [ I want God to correct me in His love-- and NOT in His anger]. He would certainly be within His proclaimed righteous Love, Justice, Wisdom and Power-- to damn our corrupt American country and culture of drugs, immorality, violence and death-- and all the rest of the sadistic world right now. I personally believe the only thing stopping Him now is the few remaining humans in the corrupt world to get [Saved] with the program and get right with God, now, before the 'doors of the proverbial Ark close and shut' [BEFORE the Trib] ! If I win just ONE soul with this post-- it will have been worth the time and effort.

It has finally, and lately 'dawned' on my hard head that doing God's Will by praising and witnessing about Jesus Christ first and fore most this Sunday, March 15th, 2009, and nothing else has this holy [sanctified] priority.. nothing! The Kingdom and the Gospel must come first-- and that means walking thru the cramped and narrow path to everlasting life. According to the apostle Paul, 'everything else is just a dung heap!' Why are the goofy people wasting valuable time, effort and treasure, spending and buying and celebrating even as they see the dark storm approaching??
No one dislikes 'change' or departing from the 'comfort zone' and earned, worked for retirement than Tom Schuckman, and now my body is very disabled and full of hurt from arthritis, back problems, Fibromyalgia, old wounds and injuries, PTSD, old before my time, etc. Actually, I hoped that God would allow me a few years AFTER retirement to enjoy what I worked for all my life in having a small place, a garden, ownership under the sun, and indeed I do own a small piece of property in WI... but I feel sort of immobilized and stranded without my power scooter -- that I am happy to still have, but my wife power chair is still broke and the repair company is jerking her around, playing games.
Well, it was predicted/ prophesied and had to happen one way or another-- but 'messiah' obama and the Dims have really helped destroy this nation and in a short time. However, both and all political parties were and are to blame, with Republicans voting on 30% of the pork and bad policies and/ or dragging their butts when they were in power thru the years. Europe and Asia are already consumed by Satan, and the USA is not far behind a Socialist, 'One-World-- One Gov't' plan/ system, and the "man of lawlessness" is lurking in the shadows, IMHO.
So now, I am finally putting all my 'chips' on God and His invincible Army. Yes, at this moment, we can't see them. But we can't see electricity or the wind either-- and yet we know it's there. We modern day people have the complete Bible where as most people in centuries past didn't or could not read it upon penalty of death.
I am not depending or putting my faith on any man, preacher, church or organization-- and I learned that the hard way.. lol. Yet, the 'telescope' [Bible] that I am putting to my eyes is getting into 'focus' recently, and I am happy, joyful and grateful for that as I was praying for help and guidance for a long time from the Holy Spirit! Happily, it doesn't matter how fast or what order we 'cross that line' that leads to eternity- life in heaven... just so we DO cross the finish line before the game is over!

After watching too much stupid TV movies, etc, today, I felt the need to post this message while it was fresh in my mind-- and it's also therapeutic for me to write in my Journal--emotional health, etc. My wife was so exhausted from today that she went to bed at 8 PM tonight. If we didn't have Oxygen for her-- I feel that she would be dead now. that's my opinion. It's very frightening to be chocking and gasping for air all the time. There was not even one phone call from the other, old church where we used to attend... shame. Oh well-- time to move on to newer and better things. Trust NO human.
I hope that some of my readers and friends will comment about this post on my blog, but also email me with their personal thoughts and view points, please. Have a good restful night.

Hugs, and Warm Regards,

I cannot wait to see this movie. Gary Sinise is behind it, and according to one Army wife I know, it is outstanding! Click the link and read Ebert's review on the side as well. It was supposed to open here in Chicago yesterday. Finally. Fairness.

We Gotta Get Out Of This Place-The Animals-(Liv...

I shook [Pastor] Wayne's hand after he gave a fine public talk/ sermon today at 0900 and gave his wife, Carol, one of my carved cherry wood 'clinging crosses.' He told me, 'Tom, we are friends now and you don't have to call me pastor.' I said, 'OK.' He wore a suit and tie today, but he maintains that he feels more comfortable just wearing dress pants and long sleeve shirt so that people don't feel 'intimidated', and I want to be open minded and flexible enough to see his point. I suppose to some-- I may seem 'out of place' with a tie... lol. He used the terms, 'brand and flavor' this morning referring to different 'Christian' churches/ denominations/ titles/ names that we call our selves, and the fact that approx. 80% of Americans call themselves "Christians", but they won't really, honestly take a stand for Christ and the Word. He cited Matt. 7:21, "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter." ANYONE can 'mouth' the words and parrot things that 'sound like scripture' or make a pretence of pretending to be something or someone! But the proof is in the pudding. Many churches have been hijacked by the Social Liberalism as they like to 'tickle the ears of the church goes' asking for more money too often for 'charities' which are not bad in themselves--- but they WATER DOWN THE GOSPEL and suggest that their followers vote for politicians who push IMMORAL bills and agendas like ABORTION, SODOMY/ GAY legistration, evolution- teachings in the schools, etc. The churches are becoming [Bible] -functionally illiterate!

The new church were we attend now has stuff that is somewhat different to me, but they follow the Word, and have bibles and song books under the seats, and most of the people bring their own copies of the BIBLE-- and people seem to be genuinely friendly, kind and courteous. I know that there are tons of people hidden in the 600 plus congregation who would make great associates and friends, and in time we shall meet them. Sharon likes it there and enjoys meeting all the new people-- and that is what I want for her!

Sharon seems to be getting worse every single day with heavy chest pains, trouble breathing, walking any distance [like one room to another],and relies on her oxygen all the time now. She coughs and hacks constantly, and we pray together often. I worry about losing her and being alone again! Yes, sometimes we fight and disagree-- but we are both working on that, and I don't want to stress her too much, so I end up letting her have her way, for now. She made a great beef tenderloin yesterday,with carrots, onions and mashed potatoes, and it was so nice to just warm it up today after church [RBC] in Sturtevant. 52 degrees today in S.E. WI and sunny! What I like about Racine Bible Church is the fellowship and how easy it is to just walk up and say hello! It seems that the folks there go out of their way to welcome people and get to know them. It's a short drive from our house.
Wednesday is when my wife goes to the hospital for 'pre-admission' so I gave her the Dodge Ram with my power scooter [and Oxygen] in the back to get around without fainting for lack of air. She is quite sure that she will be OK and she is a good driver. I just might go with my wife to make sure things are OK. I am getting more stressed every day thinking about it. I have to stay home to watch the old [VA] cleaning lady do her work. I just might want to replace her if she continues to drags her feet and yaks non-stop. Seems like she just can't talk and work at the same time...Ha! Sharon gets irratated because the woman puts stuff where we can not find it afterwards. But the doctors/ surgeons will make a decision after that for a possible angioplasty or open heart valve replacement... and that will shiver me timbers. Request many prayers from all my precious friends and readers, please. When your spouse is sick and in pain-- you suffer too. I just hope my back gets better before and during that period. I rely on Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

A lot of military men have been "baptiszed' by the fire of combat/ battle-- and have come to know and believe that a loving God is in control of their lives from minute to minute, and it's soothing to know where you are going if your life is cut short in a heart beat. Do YOU know for sure that you will go to heaven if and when you die??? Have you read and studied the Bible enough to know what God actually wants of you, and ae you "going thru the cramped and narrow path" against the normal flow of misguilded, misinformed society in this wicked world of Satan ?? If you the answer is 'NO', what kind of explaination will you have when you stand in judgement before God? Too busy? Too tired? Too much entertainment/ TV, Sports?
Have a great day!
