Monday- Sunny.

Tom's Journal.

Well Friends and Readers,
WE KNEW that the passing gas of 'obama-care' would bring on the battle royal, and I don't think this is a 'flash in the pan', nor will it go away soon... and that's good! This was never about 'health care' although they threw us a few scraps of soup bones, but it's all about POWER and CONTROL !! Next comes the so-called 'Immigration/ Amnesty' bill, hard on the heals of the Dims first bloody ['American' English] kill, and that makes sense to ram another through in their drunk delirium of a so-called victory. Actually, it was another slap in the face of true Christianity and the Bible, and the scrap of paper obama signed concerning 'no-abortion' is totally worthless and will be over turned soon enough! For one thing, it was an overreaching/ corruption of presidential power that the Supreme Court could strike down in a heart beat, and still won't end abortion that will be somehow circumvented by his fav. pals, Planned Parenthood, the ABORTION PROS! The Bart Stupak- Dims were just looking for a 'wiggle-out' excuse like Pontius Pilate, who was actually a coward who caved to the Jewish mob mentality of THAT era... and nothing has changed since then. So there is noting really new under the Sun, friends.

Since we all have a short memory [or lazy mind] I suggest that we keep a fat note book of corrupt laws that are passed, and amendments that over turn former promises....Ha!
My words today are NOT filled with poison, just truth and fact as I see it. I have not been wrong too many times, mainly because I try to stay close to the Scriptures of God Almighty. You just can't go wrong with the Lord. HIS ways never change! The world may SEEM to look like they party non-stop, but their pockets are empty, the 'plastic' is maxed out and their tongues are dry and parched from so much substance abuse and disease, etc.

So even though we keep up the fine fight to save as many "Old" Freedoms as we can, Please Know the these Times MUST get worse as the day of the Lord draws near.

I already did a lot of running around early this morning, down to the Milwaukee VA, then to Racine, WI., to buy some good silver ware that we never had, washed my old '07 Dodge Ran 4 by 4, and came home none to soon to let my hound dog outside for a needed 'breather' We are good buddies. Sharon is waiting to know what her status is: staying at the Rehab, or coming home. I have the screen doors open to let in some fresh air. Life is good and sunny today. |Praise the Lord... "PTL."
Thank God I found an emergency opening in my old Dentist's office tomorrow to fix of extract my sore back tooth that is giving me a blinding head ache... lol. If I tried to wait for an opening at the VA-- I'd be dead by that time...Ha! England and Canada-- move over. BTW, When the 'president' and Pelosi were fear mongering about the utter urgency of poor people who were locked out of getting health care RIGHT NOW and fear of them dying at, that was a BIG OLD LIE full of BS! The obama-care bill will NOT TAKE EFFECT FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS!!! Put that in your pipe and smoke it. That's correct, for the most part, from what I understand, not too much will change until 2 years from now. I may be wrong but I thought I heard that on Fox News by The Judge. The stuff I listed below [articles] may shed more light on this subject, that you might find interesting.

And it looks like the 'powers' slugged it out so that my wife can stay in Rehab for the next 2 weeks and get well, PTL ! Good News for a change!

Warm Regards,

Tom's Journal.

This following article is a 'KEEPER' and sure struck a nerve with me.
Humans continually need 'refresher courses' to prod them like ancient agrarian 'ox goads' that were the old version of electric shock sticks to 'encourage' stubborn cattle to move along... lol. 'Repetition is the mother of retention'.. old school. But that is too tedious for our present day younger students, and so they graduate high school not knowing how to read and comprehend English-- let alone 1611 KJV Bibles, being functionally illiterate... shame.

The different 'degrees' of people who latch on to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but then fall away for different reasons, like: too much pressure, work, lack of desire, or being afraid of what people THINK OF THEM, etc., is outlined and fascinating to me in the article because I have seen this many times in my 61 years of life on planet earth. Sorry, that I continue to regress to my old Army days of learning, but we have good soldiers and those who are 'along for the ride' who did the bare minimum. I was only in for 3 years of active duty, but combat imbues one with tons of action, experience, and knowledge, sometimes learned the 'hard way' IMO.

People who do the bare minimum tend to get themselves killed AND their buddies, friends. There is some value in the jingle: "Be all you can Be--in the Army" -- but let us apply that to the
'Army of God'!
You get out of something what you put IN TO SOMETHING! Why not be a Master of the Gospel rather then a 'jack of all trades-- and master of NONE ?' In my humble opinion [IMHO], Everlasting life in Heaven with Jesus, our Lord and Savior, is WORTH any and all work/ endeavor now! If we can JUST get the mindset that 70-80 years on Earth is NOTHING compared to eternity of heaven!! But that is hard to teach to a world where 'instant gratification' is the norm.
And, Hey! -- this concept came slowly to me too, and it took many years to finally get with the program; so I totally understand how people think and operate. This fact gives me patience to deal with the slow minds... but being a good preacher/ teacher of the Word is that more important NOW --go figure! The problem is in the fact that we are well along in the 'TIME LINE' of the End Times, right before the Lord WILL come back to Rapture His Believers/ Servants! People need to take a 'Crash Course' in Discipleship NOW! Sorry folks-- that's just the way it is.

When I first started out woodworking/ wood carving, etc., my artistic talents were lacking and sorry. Reading, buying books on "how to", and rubbing elbows with the experts is what propelled me to finally be a master of my craft, but that requires a lot of
DESIRE. I have found in my personal case that I have had to pray for more desire--concerning God, even for a "new heart" so as to love the Lord more and do His Will. When things are not 'clicking' and we are not making progress in our spiritual life-- prayer and more EFFORT is what we need. Ask the Holy Spirit to stiffen your spine, heart and mind! It only means your life in eternity, friends and readers!

I have a full day ahead of me today. I have to drive 22 miles to Milwaukee to pick up some 'slow' meds, and too bad I have to argue and struggle to get some of my meds on time... and don't worry, YOU FOLKS ain't seen nothin' yet...ha ha, wait 'til obama-care. LOL! the Dims are pushing Immigration NEXT! Beware. Then I will take the hound dog with me to visit my wife in the Rehab place, as he is a trained, qualified 'Service Animal' to cheer up the patient, Sharon. WE just need one more certificate so then I can get permission to take Deuce the Rotty to the VA as a 'Therapy animal' to help the Vets feel better-- and then I can use that to 'facilitate my ministry [of sorts] to hand out pocket bibles to those who desire, and share the great joy of the Gospel. That is my high lofty hope and pinnacle of desire/ success while waiting for the Lord to come for us.

Don't forget to check out: INJESUSNAME.ORG ... to help the brothers in Nigeria who are getting slaughtered by the Muslims, please.

Take care, friends.

By Dave HuntThe Berean CallWe see from God’s Word that lost sinners are offered forgiveness of all sins (past, present, and future) and eternal life as a free gift of God’s grace by virtue of Christ’s fully accomplished redemptive work upon the cross and His bodily resurrection. To receive these priceless gifts, one need only believe the gospel: that one is a sinner deserving God’s judgment and
