Hi Friends and Readers.
I will never say or advise: 'Just stop living and crawl in a cave to hunker down for the storm.' I would never say, 'Don't bother getting your teeth fixed or deny yourself major surgery or a doctor's care or painting your house, etc.' But in the same breathe, this shouldn't be "Party Time" and 'let the good times roll!' My Dad used to tell me, 'if a man works hard all year, he shouldn't skimp on his vacation.' When my 3 kids were growing up and AMC [American Motors Corp-- started: 11-7-72] would shell out 3-4 weeks of accrued vacation pay in late Spring-- if you had the seniority to claim that much money, I would pay up/ pay off a few remaining bills, but also set aside enough for at least a one week family vacation, going camping up North-Wisconsin, go to Florida, etc. Six Flags America, visiting friends in Alabama, South Carolina, and we would also have a big 'family meeting' to get the whole family's input.
But when you 'hear the sound of war drums' and you get that 'gut feeling' that something is going to break loose, the wise thing to do, IMHO [in my humble opinion] is to save/ hide cash at home in a strong, fire proof safe, buy commodities, batteries, candles, canned goods, distilled water, and MAKE A FAMILY DISASTER PLAN. THINK AHEAD AND PLAN! I am also a big believer in trading/ swapping favors and work/ labor with other trusted friends/ Christians. The "Barter System." 'Cast your bread upon the water' type of thing, and networking/ making good friends you can trust in hard times. That SHOULD BE THE NORM in real, honest, Christian church circles and communities! But... watch out for fake Christians, wolves, CHINO's who have infiltrated the churches .... please.
In years and wars past, you would hear/ read about enemy troops massing at borders -- they would be an eminent SIGN of trouble/ precursor to war. Now in the Middle East, much trouble is brewing with Iran, Syria, Turkey, Russia, Lebanon, PLO, and Israel, and the clandestine making of nukes/ atomic weapons and rockets by rogue nations. The WH and it's impotent cabinet members and emissaries have no teeth or pro-active solutions, and love to cut the heart and soul out of the military-- even demoralizing it with the new open sodomite rules and regs! Recipe for DISASTER, and their toothless, stupid "Sanctions" are a sham and insult to the American people and the world!!
I think that it's a huge stupid mistake for anyone to think that the coming Middle Eastern war won't have rippling, negative effects on Europe and America!! Anything involving the flow of oil to the USA has to be taken seriously, NOT TO MENTION the historic, Biblical prophetic rendering, fulfillment/ warning. Our biggest worry SHOULD BE the divine curse of God upon ANYONE who harms or abandons ISRAEL! But all serious bible students/ Christians KNOW which way the USA is headed and what the godless Liberal/ Progressive Program is, don't we? And it's worth knowing now that it's not just the obama/ Dims-- but also the Progressive Republicans too. Everyone will thus suffer and be hurt in some way.
It has taken me a long time [too long!] to figure all of this out finally, but I believe that I see the 'big picture' now, and have my eyes set on the prize of heaven, and constant study and tweaking of recent events that point so clearly at Bible prophecy fulfillment. I rejoice with other close friends, church members, bible students who share their mindset and encouragement in their Blogs/ Journals and Christian web sites.
THANK YOU ALL FOR SHARING YOUR BIBLICAL INSIGHT with your comments and emails, dear Friends!
My wife, Sharon is going down hill again, with swollen feet, ankles, legs and her defibrillator, problems breathing, chronic fluid in the lungs and congestive heart failure. She claims that she is taking all her prescribed meds and doing the right things... She says that her lungs build up with fluid when she lays down flat in bed-- and ends up sitting upright in her EZ chair all night in the living room. I just don't know what else to do! I am not looking for sympathy nor crying in my beer... just sharing the facts as I see them, and reporting. I know that this on going cycle will result in Sharon returning to the Hospital sooner than later. I buy and feed Sharon the BEST fresh fruit and veggies every single day, and also take her out to eat. But she is getting very weak, can hardly walk, short of breath and full of pain constantly.
I ask for your prayers again-- for both of us. I give Sharon credit for reading, studying her KJV Bible day and night, writing notes, etc, and she is getting to be very smart and savvy about the Scriptures. My Journal posting may get to be sporadic as her needs get more needy. Thank you all for your support and help/ kindness.

Bill and I spent much of the interview discussing the Rapture, Middle East politics and my "left behind" video "Jesus Came. What's Next?"Bill has been kind
