When the Time is Right.

Tom's Journal.

Let me repeat again.... WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT-- the Lord will return as He has promised, and not a minute too soon or too late! But real Christians can surely see the "Signs." The main problem, I think, is that MOST people on earth have not READ the Bible to learn about these things, and now days, many kids are not even literate at all, let alone 'Bible literate' -- even with dumbed down versions.

Another big concern is the down ward spiral of the American economy. Wars and battles have been lost for lack of gun powder or ammunition which costs more money and gasoline/ oil. Even if AMERICA made promises it 'intended' to keep, lack of funds could put a crimp in what we can now deliver. And obama looks like he is getting 'cooler' toward Israel these days and demanding 'land for peace.' Guess what?! The dollar could fall or change to a new, different currency in a HEART BEAT! Then watch all 'our' grandiose commitments and promises to others evaporate quick ... and obama and the Dims are so great in passing Bills behind closed doors to spend our tax money of goofy, foolish things. Place not your trust in puny humans who are so full of themselves! YOU will be very disappointed. Been there-- done that, and now I am a bit wiser... LOL.

The following is a very interesting article that makes sense to me, not just because of the logic-- but also the Scripture... even if we leave the 'Rapture'/ End Times part out of it. My circle of friends and fellow church members tend to agree with this point of view-- even as I well know there are 'other camps' of diverse disciplines who love to push hard that 'their way is the only way.' Good for them..LOL! Whoop de doo!
I have also been getting a mess of hate mail for my thoughts and view points of which I will not give them a forum to ambush me on this blog site. It seems like all they can do is to refer me to someone else's big powerful web site, instead of giving me the Scriptural support on their own...Ha! If I am in error the Lord will correct me in His kindness through His own Word, the Bible. And as I have said many times, I will continue to support and vote for the people running for Gov't office who lean toward following the U.S Constitution and all the Freedoms within.

It doesn't even matter if I live to see the Rapture or the coming of the Lord! We ought not to be 'fair weather Christians' or cower before some big shot's web site or organization. Being in a majority never [or going with the flow like a dead fish] interested me in the past, or now. The Bible can NEVER be wrong or inaccurate-- just the 'unbelievers' who never had the desire or time to read it.

It seems to me, if you're getting "hate mail" then you must be doing something right.
Besides, if they don't like what they're reading, they can stop reading it, lol!
