Two Part Harmony.

Tom's Journal.http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/

I found this article very appealing-- especially for it's teaching value and simplicity. I learned in high school Speech class [from Mr. David Molton] that a smart speaker can analyze his/ her audience and tailor his speech to connect to the majority of those there... as a group. I am good at words, but I wish I were a better "Word Smith" with even more academic language skills, Bible school, with Hebrew and Greek... I loved languages! But when a man comes home from combat/ war, gets a job at Nestles' chocolate in Burlington, WI, and starts a family-- many wishes/ dreams take a back seat to providing for momma and 3 children. I was raised in this mindset --that laziness was a serious sin, and taught that same hard work ethic to all my kids who are now well grown.

I suppose that some of my friends, relatives and others may find fault with this post as they have been raised a lot like I was-- Catholic, and I love them all dearly. But somehow my life changed dramatically after Vietnam, and I just HAD TO KNOW MORE ABOUT LIFE'S PURPOSE AND WHAT GOD REALLY WANTED OF US-- according to the Bible. And sorry to say, even going to a Catholic graded school, I never got my questions answered by any nun or priest concerning what the Bible actually taught. And facts don't lie-- statistics say that perhaps the majority of Catholics in the USA, and of course, African- Americans EVEN THOSE IN THE MILITARY-- voted for Mr. Obama-- the Socialist! But I don't want this post to degrade into politics, PLEASE! Don't we all get a belly full of that every single day on the "News?"
Really, are not all Parties corrupt and have their on self perpetuating agenda-- instead of helping the people? "Absolute power corrupts-- Absolutely."

That's why I have turned to GOD, our Father in Heaven! There is NO other game in town, as you will see if you read the goodies below. I just love a good writer who can make 'it all come together in the end.' Actually, for those who are 'too highly educated'- in everything worldly EXCEPT the Bible, with those almighty 'sheep skins' on their walls-- the Bible and Gospel are 'TOO SIMPLE' for them to understand-- besides the Lord has blinded them who have an evil heart -- they are in Satan's world, unless they repent and accept Jesus as Savior.

I may write a personal email to some of you [for safety sake, as I cannot trust AOL anymore-- or the lurking stalkers, back bitters and cowards out there] to help me in a personal challenge. I may come off as a mighty warrior with tough skin, but days like today made me feel very tested and shot my blood pressure up. I am calmed down now after I read the Scriptures, and some friends and the Holy Spirit helped me. I could not sleep for the pain in my back and legs, so I came back to the PC to write-- which is my form of therapy. It usually works for me.
Good Morning!

The Second Coming - In Two Part Harmony

Posted: 12 Oct 2010 12:43 PM PDT

By Jack Kinsella The Omega Letter The Bible often appears to address the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as if it were one event, but upon closer examination, it is obvious that it takes place in two separate parts with an interval of time between them.The Lord returns once for His Church as its Redeemer and then again at the end of the Tribulation Period as its Avenger. The first coming is in

Now days the cowards who can't poke holes in legitimate Christian and Bible articles-- assassinate the messenger ! So what's new in this 'POLITICALLY CORRECT, ant-God world?? I wrote two emails to AOL to find out just who and why someone reported my blog post yesterday-- but they have not responded yet, and I doubt they ever will. Everyone who knows me or has read my blog KNOWS that I don't use any profanity or off color words. or pix, but if the King James Bible offends them, I stand guilty-- I guess. Beware: the "THOUGHT POLICE" will NOT go away any time soon, and it's going to get worse. And yet, if a Christian be persecuted for Christ's sake-- greater will his reward be in Heaven! Hey-- I consider that better than an investment in precious metals, friends! Woo Woo!

I guess I will refrain from posting too many more 'comments' on FB and other AOL sponsored news and events. If you don't flow with the Libs like a dead fish-- they will play rough with you-- but that is MY own personal opinion.
Jesus said: "Think not that I have come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a SWORD." ~Matthew 10:34. But read the whole chapter to get the real gist of meaning. Who ever sent that complaint-- why not own up to it and explain just what offended you-- in these Free United States of America.

I had a very hard day today, from getting shots again at the VA in both knees to being disrespected by an attending RN, but I should not have corrected in front of my doctor friend even if I did tell the whole truth about what she did to me..... Ha! My friend, Mike Ryan who gives me the injections sort of told me that it's 'best not to say anything back to a female nurse [with their fragile egos and thin skins], even when they are disrespectful, abusive to combat Veterans. We should just "LET IT GO AND NOT SAY ANYTHING!!" EVERY OTHER VETERAN THAT I HAVE EVER TALKED TO TELLS ME THE SAME THING! I always feel a tense under current of tension, anxiety, fear, and yes-- animosity, from other Veterans who have to jump through hoops and take so much manure from some of the hospital staff at the Milwaukee VA. I have actually talked a few Vets out of doing something nasty to docs and staff-- not wanting them to get into trouble-- and that would give the rest of us a bad name and add to our so-called "stigma" of being 'unbalanced'...when we all got a bad shake/ rep. especially from some "Media"-TV types.

I went to visit Sharon today as she called me to take her out for drive-in cheeseburgers and root beer -- she had permission to stay out that afternoon. Then I got her more Ruby Red grapefruits and took her back to Woodstock Rehab. Latter at home I retrieved a phone call message that mentioned something about Hospice for my wife-- and that shook me up! I just wasn't mentally prepared for such a shock... so I called my wife and she just heard about it too as she was visiting with our Pastor George Schlegel at the time in her room. I will talk more about this latter....
A few friends came over to see me today, Dan Totts, a Marine and fellow Chrysler retiree, and brother Joe Van den Mullen came over to share some encouragement from the Bible-- Psalm 73-- and how everything in our lives is in God's hands, so why should we worry so much. Still, I have a head ache and gut ache from all the stress today.
Thank you, brother Kurt, the Marine, from WI, for sending me a cool story about smelting fine silver, and the Biblical application.

But I had another disappointment at the VA this morning... as I found out that they decided to re-do/ refurbish one of the OR's [Operating Rooms, used for Ortho/ knee, etc., replacements,], and so that new undertaking pushed my own surgery back to the last part of November -- and I well know and support the fact that there is a long line ahead of me-- of deserving Veterans who have also waited too long!! I see the poor old souls hobbling along and they are in severe pain, even though they try to HIDE IT! Darn... I will bring my camera to the VA next time I come and start a photo journal. What gets me riled is that NO ONE will do the simple chore of finding out what, why, when and how-- for the Vets-- unless you have a 'friend on the inside.' That means that most of the Vets are messed over. You say that you just can't wait for obama-care, and more Gov't controls to mess things up-- forever ??? Ha! Just look what the Gov't has goofed up in the last 2 years! Take your pick. When the Republicans get back in office-- HOLD THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE TOO!
Are you ready for the Rapture yet?
