Why I Blog.

Tom's Journal.

I'm telling you that almost every day THIS serious Bible student [ME] who at one time thought he was a 'scholar', learns a new 'twist' or better understanding of some facet of prophecy, or bible verse, and I am loving it. That means that we can NEVER be too proud and full of ourselves to be so un-flexible so as to NOT learn minute gems and pearls of truth and wisdom! Holy Spirit helps us in that quest. This is not something earth shattering or something that would keep us out of heaven-- but still very interesting.... just like the "Lord's Prayer" and it's real meaning that few understand.

I also reflected upon WHY I chose to begin blogging a few years ago-- and there were a number of reasons, like: therapy for my PTSD, camaraderie, sharing the Gospel with others and also being encouraged by 'feed back', meeting other Christians with like interest, as "Iron sharpens Iron" ~Proverbs 27:17, etc.
I have to say that I have learned so much these past 5 years or so, in that I see the "love of the greater number cooling off" with much complacency, laziness, satisfied to be a 'couch potato', and putting their burned out brain on the shelf... lol, as TV and PC are much entertaining. And the article below elaborates on Jesus' own words that are cited-- in relation to what is happening just BEFORE the RAPTURE. Even if N happen to have the "tools" and gifts of a good teacher-- people will still not be motivated if they don't want to! And that is just the cold, hard facts, friends. The trick is NOT to get burned out and quit.

As the apostle Paul said, 'Just knock the dust off your clothes and travel on...go to the next door or human being to share the Gospel.' This might be discouraging, but we just need to move on and continue our mission on earth until the Rapture.... and that is really what I am waiting for!! The only difference is that the world of mankind doesn't have the 30-40 years that I had-- to fine the real TRUTH of Salvation!

My own son is between jobs and has some time on his hands, so I told him that THIS is the big time in my life where and when I could really use his physical help and friendship, before I have the knee surgery, that he could live FREE at my humble house, with tons of food, just for a few weeks, and perhaps a little while after my surgery, and I would even pay him gas money if he has to go to work/ finds a job. I wonder if he can see past his own wants and desires to put some body else before his personal pleasures, desires and needs...please pray for him. Time will tell. But this could be his big opportunity to do something special and important to help his father. Hey! For the most part, as the Bible clearly says, the vast MAJORITY of human kind will be "Left Behind" and most of them will go to hell. That's a fact-- Jack.

I pride myself on my new chosen diet of better foods, veggies, fruits and whole grain bread, just as the VA docs suggested to lower my cholesterol and weight. And I know that some of you readers will laugh, but I am also preparing myself for death, if it happens pre-maturely. In fact, I told my son today-- with all the pain and stress-- 'if I died today or tomorrow, it would be a blessing from God.' The world and especially the mad, mad, corruption and perversions in Gov't make me want to vomit, with their God-dishonoring ways and "Progressive", "Liberal" movement/ standards, horrible education, and constant LIES, etc. And the young people are growing up Godless, with no respect for the Bible or anything good, IMO, except for those who are home schooled! There are hardly a few to stand up with a back bone-- to the destruction of our country andConstitution. The Congress are a bunch of pandering cowards only interested in keeping their jobs at all costs... and selling us out every day they are in power.

Sharon is happy where she is now, in a regimented setting with new friends that she can visit and talk to, and I call her about 8 times a day-- guess I am that lonely.. Ha! I am kind of glad that I have a loyal buddy at home, my hound dog, Deuce, the Rotty. I just hope I am well enough to vote in Nov., and will explore doing an absentee vote just in case. 'Throw the bums out!' I don't want to miss THIS one!
Well, I just love Wisconsin in the Fall when things are so peaceful and pretty with the air temps perfect.
Bless all my Christian brothers and sisters.


As It Was in the Days of Noah: Rapture or Second Coming?

Posted: 11 Oct 2010 02:06 PM PDT

By Jeffrey R. Camino As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of

Tom, it's interesting that you posted this. Last night, I listened to Pastor Adrian Rogers (Now, he was a real preacher!) and he talked about the days of Noah as well. Compared to today. He brought up things as well, that I didn't know or understand in the Bible. Too much to talk about here, but if you go to Love Worth Finding, you may be able to hear it on the net.
Anyway, excellent post and very timely as usual. I do hope Andy will take you up on your offer as it would be beneficial to both of you. I know he's young and wants nothing less than to move back in with dad- but I hope he'll see the logic in it (to save money for one!) and it sure would help you out! I'm glad Sharon is getting along well in the rehab nursing home, and hopefully it will help her to start taking care of her own health too. Anyway my dear brother, thank you for your years of blogging. I know I don't get on to comment nearly enough- but you've always had a truthful, heart felt blog, wanting people to know the truth of our Lord. God Bless and have a good week. Keep us updated on when and how your surgery goes!!!
