Blury Eyes.

Tom's Journal.

It is time to start living as Christ demands! We all need to spread the
gospel and memorize the scriptures because a time is coming when we will
not be allowed to own a bible and most likely we will be on the street. --Mark Saitta,
one of my Christian friends.

Mark is a good writer and Christian friend of mine. Thank you, Mark!

Today... I am not crying or complaining-- just stating a few facts: It snowed
again last night and then the
sun came out and melted some-- turning it into slippery ice on the walks, etc.
I asked a good friend of mine, Joe vander Mullen, to come with me this
as my eye doctor [Debbie] dilated my pupils to examine the eyes better,
and everything
turned fuzzy and distorted. But |Joe is about 84 and his eyes are
not so good
either, so I ended up driving home, and we didn't visit Sharon like
I planned.
It just would not do any good for big Tom to fall down and brake
something else.
At least I had some good company to visit and talk to while driving,
but I am sorry that
I wasted his day. I am STILL fuzzy-eyed from 10:15AM appointment
so cut me some
slack if I made typos, please.

Well, at least it gives me more time to locate my old chess board, and BANG! --
I just found it not more than 5 feet away from my PC! I am trying to get
mind off her own troubles and stimulate her mind with chess and Bible

Unfortunate, but true, America COULD experience scary legislation
or 'executive order'
stripping us of our Bibles, etc., in the future-- and I KNOW that many
will say I am just
a crazy old man still re-living the war in Vietnam. But have we not
seen too much
already in America, kicking God out of schools, courts, and public
squares, etc??
I keep yelling at everyone: "The President could not do anything
except for the
Congress OK-ing it !! I suppose that violence and immorality are
the norm for our kids
now days, and just take a look at what is happening South of the border
-- many
killed, more than in actual war zones over seas! Some of us may be growing
blind physically, but MOST of America is 'spiritually blind' now. I have cited the
scriptures that prove this fact many times in this Blog... and there will
soon come a time
when Almighty God calls this message to a halt as the Great Tribulation begins.

I can trust very few people not to repeat certain things I tell them, and one
of them is
Brother Joe V, and Joe Belinger. As I said before, the term, "Christian" now
days, nothing but a 'Buzz Word.' Most so-called 'Christians' don't even know
Bible or care to do the reading/ study! When the real 'separating work'
comes to America
WHO WILL STAND ?? It's the same in the Army-- we are prepared for
battle, but

the real test is combat itself! Those of us who have experienced it
are a "Special

Class" of warriors. Even so, there will be more tests in the future.

Rapture Believers.

Tom and our fine, noble Rottweiler, Deuce, in our computer room, 2010, Wisconsin. Go Packers! Springtime isn't too far away, and I can't wait to plant the veggie garden again! Journal.

For some unknown reason, I felt better today even early on, as I went to church and had a good restful time, and learned some great things about the Rapture. We were hanging in 1st Thessalonians 4:17, and such... but better to just read that whole short book recorded by St. Paul, to get the real background meaning of it. And then people won't think that you took that verse 'out of context.' We want to be sharp and knowledgeable with the Bible-- but consider that Jesus Himself could not brake through the stone cold hearts of the Pharisees.... and we have many of those 'unbeliever types' alive now in 2001, Ha! so we 'suffer a mild persecution from those people' and during the Trib., God will further blind their minds and hearts until they are are destroyed and go to a very bad place reserved for them. And while we do serious research-- if you really wanted to hone your skills like a razor, READ THE MATERIAL A 2ND TIME! I remember that Print Reading for Welders, in college, was hard for me, and the instructor [who was a good teacher] said that sometimes a person might have to read the book 7 times to get the subject down correctly in our brain box-- even as his own son had to do.

I got some strawberries and grapefruits for my lovely wife in the nursing home and that lit up her eyes. She looked good and alert today and I spent a lot of time with her, and promised that I would teach her how to play chess. We were reading some stuff from the Bible today together and we were encouraged but we both need to read LARGE print Bibles these days. The old German proverb...'When one helps another-- both are strong.' But her tummy is so upset so that she gags just to smell the mess hall 'food' that is served I gave her the herb, Fennel to sooth her stomach and make her sweet. Ephesians 5:28-29 says, "So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29. For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church...." What really made me angry today was the dry, cracked, unattended shins and legs of my wife, because the staff doesn't take care of the patients right!! I will bring in the right ointments and creams for Sharon and take care of her MYSELF! But is this kind of neglect and abuse what our insurance pays for??
Well, I still have some special, great skin cream from when I was in the KMH hospital called, Medline Remedy skin repair cream, and I will now buy some more of it.
But as an herbalist, I know that I could make my own compound oil if I needed to. See:
So now that I have my 4 by 4 and my power scooter back in service, I can see my wife more often. She loves her new refrigerator too-- classic black color. Now I have to find that chess board-- or buy a new one. It will be so fun and exciting!
My spirits are up today and as always, I will try to make them last. PTL.

Warm Regards,

Pre And Post Rapture Believers


Q. Re: Your commentary on Revelation 7: 9 – 17. What is the scriptural substantiation for: (1) your separation of believers into two classes, pre-rapture and post rapture, and (2) the notion that the Church will enjoy greater blessings and rewards in Heaven than the post rapture believers? We know that faith alone is the [...]

Brannon Howse.

Tom's Journal.

Ha! More snow... lol, Woo Woo! Hey-- this white stuff is getting old for old folks like me, and this only makes me dream of moving farther South, but I would miss all my friends and support groups. Hard enough now days to makes new friends and be there for my Mom and others.

I 'cherry-picked' something that has bugged me for a long time-- and that is: people love to worm out of telling the truth of a matter by MIS-QUOTING a scripture that means something all together different. I am going to define a bunch of words later, like axioms, truisms, etc., but for now, I need to present one of my FAV. Bible scholars/ preachers whom I listen to on the local Christian radio: WVCY 107.7 FM --Milwaukee, WI. And to prove just how dangerous and sneaky false teachers like Rick Warren are, his false teachings have even infiltrated a local Baptist church where some of my friends attend, in Kenosha, WI !! Beware!

Tom Schuckman

Brannon Howse Jeremy here is an article for you on the real meaning of "judge not lest you be judged." I pray you will read it. You are taking the verse out of context.

Back in the Saddle again.

Here is my 2005 Dodge Caravan that I am trying to sell-- but it should go well this Springtime.

I figured that I would promote one of my fav. blogs-- below, BIBLE PROPHECY blog. I find it so interesting as it brings me up to date every day concerning special stuff that is happening in the world that relate to Bible Prophecy, which is so important in these 'Last Days.' Most serious bible students already know what the future will bring-- and that helps us run our present day lives better and with more wisdom, in 2011. I suppose that some investments we might have made if we were ignorant-- are better thought out with proper Bible knowledge. We ought to also know what our 'MAIN PRIORITIES' should be as Christians as we look forward to Christ's Rapture and beyond. Lastly, these things should strengthen us so that we don't lose heart as more violence and poor economy befall the whole world.

I had a good day because I picked up my pick up truck, all repaired and shiny/ clean! They even cleaned the inside of the Ram 4 by 4. The young offender's company, [ who backed into me] a few weeks ago paid all the repairs, and the insurance people didn't have to get involved. The shop put on a new right rear fender and back bumper. So I'm back in the saddle again, and I called Sharon to ask if she wants anything when I visit her tomorrow.

It just dawned on me that perhaps the biggest reason why this Winter seems to grow so long and slow is that I am all alone at home for the first time in a long time!! Duh... And post-op surgery that is not healing like it should slows me down to a grimaced face walk. I get cold more so too, but wear more, better quality clothes. Seems like even when I broke my neck in '97, and another time fractured 12 ribs in 2001, I seemed to heal up faster and was back to work in less than 3 months!! Must be old age that took the 'wind out of my sails.' I was also 100 pounds lighter, but then I could work every day and lift weights too. I have been so close to death [AFTER Vietnam: 68-70!] so many times, at work, at play, on motorcycles [my big passion for many years], etc. I bought my first motorcycle in 1973 and sold my last bike-- Goldwing, 2 years ago. I have had to slap myself in the face with Aqua Velva, and force myself to change-- or die. I gave up smoking in 1973 also, and my son was born that year in December... Brrrr.

I am watching too much TV, when I should be studying the Bible, but my eyes are having trouble reading fine print-- but that's no excuse for me. I do read many Bible based blogs and articles that encourage me.

I heard today that more 'born-again Christians' are more likely to get divorced than unbelievers in the USA!! The churches are afraid to teach the truth of God's Word, and there are many false Christians, perhaps. We ought to work harder and take our Faith more seriously.... all of us. Or is it that unbelievers don't even bother to get married I am NOT pointing fingers because I have made many mistakes too when I was a wild man.

I am going to ask if my wife would like any snail mail letters from other Christians since her nursing home seldom has the Internet running correctly. If some of you would like to volunteer, get back with me via you personal email address, please. I believe that my dear wife leads a somewhat lonely life at that nursing home, and it's 20 miles from my house, and gas is getting higher.

Students Can't Read.

Tom's Journal.

This is exactly what I mean when I repeatedly say that the BIBLE is NOT the problem in terms of understandability. Since most of the Bible is written on a 5th grade level -- lack of reading skills IS the real problem!! I always thought that Wisconsin was ahead of the reading/ education curve, and I would hate to see what places like Detroit look like. Someone dropped the ball... again, and Obama's new style of teaching the kids doesn't work so well either-- but the Liberals' agenda have effectively 'DUMBED DOWN' the level of teaching and eduction in this country!! That's the way I see things, folks. With good jobs being harder to get/ find now days, I would think that the competitive edge of basic reading skills would be very important.

I thought I had a good education even after the Army, but ended up going back to college twice to learn new skills and training, besides getting a blue chip education in Finance/ Securities/ Investments, etc, on my own with PFS Investments.

I used to think that I would always be alright with my many 'investments', and organizational skills and net working. Now, in 2011, I realize that the ONLY thing I really have going for me is my relationship with Jesus Christ, and knowledge of the Bible. All else is fleeting.

Two-Thirds of Wisconsin Public-School 8th Graders Can't Read Proficiently


Two-thirds of the eighth graders in Wisconsin public schools cannot read proficiently according to the U.S. Department of Education, despite the fact that Wisconsin spends more per pupil in its public schools than any other state in the Midwest.

In the National Assessment of Educational Progress tests administered by the U.S. Department of Education in 2009—the latest year available—only 32 percent of Wisconsin public-school eighth graders earned a “proficient” rating while another 2 percent earned an “advanced” rating. The other 66 percent of Wisconsin public-school eighth graders earned ratings below “proficient,” including 44 percent who earned a rating of “basic” and 22 percent who earned a rating of “below basic.”

Jesus' Resurrection-- Important..

Tom's Journal.

I didn't fully understand this all my life until just now! But it would have been very stupid with lack of faith to get tripped up over something like this-- when all we have to do is wait patiently until we learn the full explanation. And to think that some God-hating atheists may have lured a few away from a personal relationship with Christ.... Shame.

A Bible Prophecy Problem Concerning the Resurrection

Posted: 23 Feb 2011 10:57 AM PST

By Dr. David R. Reagan Lamb & Lion Ministries The most significant prophecy in the Bible concerning the resurrection of Jesus is known as “the prophecy of Jonah.” It is a symbolic prophecy represented by the three days and three nights that Jonah spent in the stomach of a great fish (Jonah 1:17).Jesus explained the prophetic symbolism of this unique event on an occasion when He rebuked the

If I Die Before You Wake.

Tom's Journal.

Let's talk for a bit about things that are deeply buried with in us. There were indelible times, places and events in our childhood that we will probably never forget-- but the "family or elite club of Combat Veterans" of ANY country that has honor and Freedom are very special, for a number of reasons. First of all the military [at least in the old days of the 1960's and before] was very disciplined and well trained, and they tried hard to weed out and separate the 'men from the boys' so that the 'undesirables' would not contaminate the good portion of our troops, nor get us killed by their stupidity! That only makes sense, and by in large, the U.S. Army, and other armed forces did a pretty good job of that, IMHO. The USA poured a lot of time, energy, money and training into our troops BEFORE they went into combat and other places/ jobs. It all turned out OK for me in the end... even though I still suffer from PTSD, etc. And those of us who came out of the military with an HONORABLE discharge ought to be proud! We are indeed, a cut above most civilians-- by our experiences and training alone!

Be that as it may, having said that, NO ONE WILL GET TO HEAVEN unless the Lord WILLS it!! According to the Word of God-- the BIBLE, without accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, we are lost. Without coming to at least a rudimentary knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, all others on the 'out side' stand a bleak, snow ball's chance in Miami, FL., in the Summer time, getting to heaven.

Atheists, agnostics, UN-Believers, false religion, will be 'Left Behind' to suffer the last 7 years on earth in the next worse thing besides hell in anguish and horror as their whole world comes crashing down on their collective heads... and yes, some of those prideful people will still shake their fists at God.

I don't make a big deal about the rising prices of gas, food, clothes, etc., but today the price of one Troy ounce of Silver was $34 !! ... and Gold was over $1400/ oz ! Many folks in the USA have 'painted themselves into a corner' by getting over loaded with plastic credit card DEBT [and I wish I were not in debt too...], and the Gov't sets a poor example for it's citizens with it's MEGA- DEBT, borrowing and printing more money in the back room. I was very poor for a short time in my life when I was laid off from Chrysler in the early 1990's even though I worked all the time as a welder, etc., and I will always carry those humiliating time and events in my heart, friends. I do OK now-- but I am not so stupid as to think poverty could never knock at my door again... and the Bible also tells me so! Best to live within our means.

Christians don't get their 'News' from the liberal 'News Media' on TV. We have 'other sources' that the Gov't would love to shut down, and we talk amongst ourselves. But isn't it strange and uncanny how almost EVERY SCRAP of international and local news mirrors exactly what Bible prophecy has told us all along??! Wow! it's down right exciting-- not that we get some sick joy from seeing other people suffer. And although heads of State and Gov't are only human-- it seems like they sit idle with their fingers in their ears-- they really could have done more with all their so-called bragged about "wisdom and power" Romans 1:22, "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools," --Even though that first chapter of Romans has to do with how evil and goofy homosexuality is and how God hates it, many people including the Prez seem to wink and condone it just like he did today!! If they only knew how damaging that manure will be to the Army and Navy ! Shame on the president and Congress for allowing this to happen! But folks, this is just a small side point of what is coming down --world wide.

As ancient Israel's God, Jehovah, did to the Egyptians long ago-- putting their false gods to shame, one by one, humiliating them, so too is He now doing also to the Nations, American included. Our false gods, Sex and Money, will be brought down soon too. If and when the price of gas go past $5/gal., that will affect the price of EVERY other thing too-- commodities, services, goods, food, construction, etc. And I would guess that it won't take long. Put another whammy on us-- our American dollars will not be worth very much either because of INFLATION-- so they will NOT buy as much, but our wages will stay the same or become less. NOW what will happen... when the Gov't can't walk and chew bubble gum at the same time ?? Ha! they will play the 'blame game' some more, as usual.

Friends and Readers, what's happening in Madison, WI is small potatoes compare to what we could really see and experience come Springtime in the good old USA! And you have been hearing about this very thing from me and many other Bible loving Christian bloggers... but you said, "Oh well, we will make it somehow, some way." But Tom Schuckman says, 'Only if you are very close to God -- according to the BIBLE.' Please get a copy of the DEFINED KJV Bible at:

Future Monetary System.

Tom's Journal.

Unfortunately, it took me many years to finally get the Holy Spirit that helps me understand the Bible. Many misled people think that a man has to go to some Bible College and receive a 'degree' in Theology, etc. to share the Good News of the Gospel. Other uninformed 'unbelievers' claim that a person ought to have led a sinless, spotless life style to become a pastor, preacher, minister or evangelist. Not true, friends! People become real Christians are different stages of their lives and carry out many different works and labors for the Lord-- as they are led by the Holy Spirit. God gives different people specific 'knowledge' that HE alone wants to impart to them. I only desire to be a lowly, humble servant to do what ever the Lord wants me to, but I believe I have the 'gift to gab' and love to share the Gospel and Bible knowledge with as many a hearing ear as possible.

As I have many times shared in this humble blog, the Bible is written on a 5th grade level and is readily available in most ANY language on earth. The real problem is that many humans don't know how to correctly READ and WRITE!! I strongly recommend using the DEFINED KING JAMES VERSION Bible. See the web site: -- Even in America where the public educational system has been "dumbed down" for political reasons, many high school graduates are 'functionally illiterate!' What a stinking shame! And go figure: Most of our ancestors from the 'Old Country' learned to read, and had the Bible, but without all the conveniences that we have now days-- but all we hear is lame excuses from the kids and adults now days. Satan has done a fine job closing the eyes, blinding humans all over the earth.

Personally, I see most of the 'News' missing the mark or what really is happening behind the scenes-- as the 'Man of Lawlessness' -- the Anti-Christ is lurking in the shadows, waiting to take control of the 'New World Order', and it doesn't take too much imagination to figure out what the 'new single monetary system' will be like--- electronic. In the mean time, the devil and his henchmen have most of the globe chasing their tails, being side tracked by every day matters, trying to stay ahead of the collapsing economic melt down,
Dear Lord, please help us keep our eyes on the Prize-- everlasting life in heaven after the Rapture. When a man plows the field like my father taught me as we were raised on a small farm in Wisconsin, we HAD TO KEEP OUR EYES ALERT and the right wheel of the tractor IN THE FURROW! All the neighbors would surely see any of our mistakes... as most farmers take note of that stuff... lol.

What should concern us is that we have all this information now so that we can 'check it' against what we read in the Bible. [also check out the fine 'tool' on-line for free: e-sword]. It's just one more "sign" that the 'End of this system' is at hand. Of all the stupid mistakes I have committed in my life--- I surely don't want to miss the "LAST PLANE OUT OF HERE !!" I don't want to be left behind! Better to live a lowly life as a cripple/ disabled man on earth -- than to miss that plane to glory and God's eternal protection.

And please let me try to explain again, anyone of normal intellect can be an 'expert' at something. If I read Betty Crocker's Cook book a hundred times, I would probably know how to be a great cook in a few years. So too, if a regular person seeks favor in the Lord and yields to the Holy Spirit-- that person will understand the Bible well enough to share it with other people. But just like the time of Noah's Ark, only 8 humans survived the Flood that killed millions of wicked mankind. Relatively 'FEW' people will be saved at the Rapture compared to the earth's BILLIONS in the near future. Beware. Be Alert.

Comments requested, please.

Blueprint for End-Times Monetary System

Posted: 21 Feb 2011 07:54 AM PST

By Terry James Rapture Ready International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials recently let it be known the direction of their thinking for solving the growing economic crises facing the nations of earth. Their cogitations - it is no surprise to those of us who view ongoing developments from the perspective of Bible prophecy - include two basic elements: 1) They want a single monetary unit; and 2) they

The Great Pyramid.

Tom's Journal.

This is truly hard to wrap my mind around... lol, especially for an old country boy like Tom Schuckman, but I find it very fascinating! This article was so interesting to me-- and led me to believe that God had a hand in the making of the Pyramids.

Thank you, all my friends and acquaintances from Face Book, who wished me a Happy Birthday today!! You certainly made my day on Feb. 20th, 2011 -- age 62! It feels so good to be thought of by so many people, at least on one day of the year, and it erases the few negative experiences from immature and perverse unbelievers who don't have a life. We pray for the unbelievers too that they may yet make peace with God and reach true salvation only through Christ, before the 'Storm.'

And we are still blessed to live in America where we may still talk, and disagree, and discuss things that would surely get us hung in other countries who have no freedoms as we do. PTL! Let us not waste or squander this remaining precious time-- but use it to bring glory/ praise the Lord, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all-- far and wide, pray for our so-called 'enemies' [as Rev. Hagee said], and leaders, that we may have safety and peace while serving the Lord in these 'End Times.'

And friends, most of us know that there are many ways of being educated.. as long as we can read well. Study and knowledge of the Bible is the beginning of Wisdom-- and we will continue to learn much in heaven so that our brains may never be 'too full !'

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman

Hate Mail.

Tom's Journal.

Things are not going so bad for me, really. Being in the 'know' and up to date with high speed news and info makes me aware of so many people in the world who suffer 10 times worse than I do.

But today, I got a snail mail "birthday card" with evil calculated poison pen hate speech on it-- but I believe that it "comes with the territory" of real Christians who still share the Word, and the Gospel. And it doesn't take a 'Sherlock' to figure out: 1. snail mail, 2. Roanoake, VA, 3. no return address or signature-- and therefore a coward--- who sent it, most likely Walter, who still doesn't have a life or is bored to death. I feel sorry for him, that he has all that time to pursue hateful endeavors to hurt others in his retirement years of leisure in the sun. Can a person truly have the Holy Spirit if he harbors all these hateful feelings with overt actions?? Is such a person happy? I don't think so.... but I can only leave such things to the Lord. Let us pray for Walter in Virginia, please, that he reads the Bible and does more than just sit like a bump on a log WHERE EVER he claims to attend church. He used to be a valued friend of mine, but after he got so negative and boastful, I decided to break things off for a "cooling off time/ period" because I really don't need all that negativity in my life from someone who CLAIMS to be my personal friend and brother.... sorry.

Aside from a little congestion and throat, nose discomfort, I am doing well, and my wife is alert too. I suppose it would be 'safer' to leave out most of my personal life-- as that only gives jealous, hateful people ammunition to shoot me down like the fore mentioned person from Roanoake, VA., who shuns and makes fun of anyone who owns or uses a PC --Personal Computer, and he is 'low tech' -- and that's alright if he chooses to be! Someday, and soon, we may lose our PC/ Internet technology from enemies in China, North Korea who try to take over or destroy our Internet capabilities, etc., or a Solar Flare, or what ever, and I believe in being prepared for the unknown too! But most of us have limited resource$, so building an expensive underground, well stocked bunker is out of the question. Most CHRISTIANS I know mainly put their faith and trust in GOD, however, the Bible does speak positively about saving something for emergencies, etc. Still, we want to remain BALANCED, IMHO.

It's a nice sunny day, but the weather forecast says that heavy snow will be here again North of Milwaukee, WI., but we are used to having snow in our great, over taxed, overly Liberal, Northern State.

Bless all my friends and readers. I hang out on FACEBOOK now days where I find a few folks who have similar interests, like Pro-Life, serious Bible students, conservative politics and present and past military stuff, Rottweilers, etc.

Warm Regards,

Prez may be in trouble.

Tom's Journal.

BUT... even IF Mr. Obama gets removed from the presidency, we are still in a giant stew where the world is working it's way to the 'point of no return' and the unraveling of civilization as we know it. As if we educated Bible loving Christian have not already seen all the precursors of the world slipping downward into that slippery slope of heathen, ungodly, Satanic dung heap of immorality and corruption these past few decades. It very well looks as if Satan is winning the war-- but in reality a good handful of battles. Fact is: JESUS IS COMING, and the Rapture is near! Hold on to the Truth that set you free, dear friends in Christ! I say that even if the "good guys" were soon elected in the USA-- the future of planet earth still has to fulfill Bible prophecy! I continue-- Heaven is a real place where the Saints and Believers will go, but Satan has done a smash up job of deceiving the majority of the world. He has most of the world chasing their tails with all the momentous political world events and turmoil that fills the TV 'news' every single day! Good news or bad news-- it's ALL a major distraction from God's Word-- the BIBLE!

Frankly, friends, I personally have to near beat myself not to get involved and regress into being a "news junkie" too. I am human, and there fore a sinner, with plenty to work on. If I come off as being a braggart, boastful or a know- it -all, I sincerely apologize, even as I have tried to read, study to become knowledgeable of all the stuff I talk about and share. After all, what good is having the world in your hands -- if you lose your soul in the end?? As I told my Mom [again and again] today, the definition of an expert is 'someone who knows everything there is to know about ONE, SET SUBJECT.' So many of us are an expert, or a near-expert in a few subjects, including me, yet we are still sinners and dust in the wind-- SAVED only by the blood sacrifice of our Lord, Jesus.

I saw my wife today, and last night she got sick on the food [or something] and had to be put to bed by the nurse and remain there until she is better. She is weak and dizzy. I told her that she would get the compact refrigerator that she wanted within the week, as the nursing home only allows the patients to have a small 2.5 CU. IN. unit in their room, so I will call Sears tomorrow. I brought her some vitamin C and more cough drops, etc. and spent some quality time with her, then did a lot of chores before my truck is repaired for parts of 3 days next week... because some punk backed his company's truck into my beautiful Ram 4 by 4 a week ago....Grrrr.
My son, Andy, charged up the dead battery in my older Caravan, but my power scooter won't be available for me until the truck is repaired. I think that the repair shops get rich that way... lol. And all of their "loaners" are busy doing time with other folks. I got the flu now too with congestion, sore throat and trouble breathing. Sharon still has bronchitis, etc. Thank you all for your prayers.

Most of our snow has melted in S.E. Wisconsin-- but perhaps some of that is related to the heat and hot air from the revolting teachers' unions protesting in Madison, WI...Ha! They do get some very high benefit packages and perks up here in WI., and the children get hurt when they strike. Actually, although some teachers are very good-- the students graduate functionally illiterate these days and Milwaukee still has a high teen age pregnancy problem yet... I have been in a few unions in my life too, and I can say that they are both good and bad, and many had a communist beginning. As per coal miners and auto workers-- we [they] were screwed and mistreated by the rich owners and managers in the early days--low pay, deaths on the job and injuries, etc., but after ward, IMHO, the unions got too greedy-- and many companies out sourced to places like Mexico and China. Obama supports the Unions because they put him into office!! Please read about this below:

Obama may be in deep trouble… Chief Justice John Roberts, U.S. Supreme Court


By Rebel Rouser from Texas

According to sources who watch the inner workings of the federal government, a smackdown of Barack Obama by the U.S. Supreme Court may be inevitable. Ever since Obama assumed the office of President, critics have hammered him on a number of Constitutional issues.

Critics have complained that much, if not all of Obama’s major initiatives run headlong into Constitutional roadblocks on the power of the federal government.

Obama certainly did not help himself in the eyes of the Court when he used the venue of the State of the Union address early in the year to publicly flog the Court over its ruling that the First Amendment grants the right to various organizations to run political ads during the time of an election.

The tongue-lashing clearly did not sit well with the Court, as demonstrated by Justice Sam Alito, who publicly shook his head and stated under his breath, ‘That’s not true,’ when Obama told a flat-out lie concerning the Court’s ruling.

As it has turned out, this was a watershed moment in the relationship between the executive and the judicial branches of the federal government. Obama publicly declared war on the court, even as he blatantly continued to propose legislation that flies in the face of every known Constitutional principle upon which this nation has stood for over 200 years.

Obama has even identified Chief Justice John Roberts as his number one enemy, that is, apart from Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, and so on.

And it is no accident that the one swing-vote on the court, Justice Anthony Kennedy, stated recently that he has no intention of retiring until ‘Obama is gone.’

Apparently, the Court has had enough.

The Roberts Court has signaled, in a very subtle manner, of course, that it intends to address the issues about which Obama critics have been screaming to high heaven.

A ruling against Obama on any one of these important issues could potentially cripple the Administration.

Such a thing would be long overdue.

First, there is ObamaCare, which violates the Constitutional principle barring the federal government from forcing citizens to purchase something.

And no, this is not the same thing as states requiring drivers to purchase car insurance, as some of the intellectually-impaired claim.

The Constitution limits FEDERAL government, not state governments, from such things, and further, not everyone has to drive, and thus, a citizen could opt not to purchase car insurance by simply deciding not to drive a vehicle.

In the ObamaCare world, however, no citizen can ‘opt out.’

Second, sources state that the Roberts court has quietly accepted information concerning discrepancies in Obama’s history that raise serious questions about his eligibility for the office of President.

The charge goes far beyond the birth certificate issue. This information involves possible fraudulent use of a Social Security number in Connecticut, while Obama was a high school student in Hawaii.

And that is only the tip of the iceberg.

Third, several cases involving possible criminal activity, conflicts of interest, and pay-for-play cronyism could potentially land many Administration officials, if not Obama himself, in hot water with the Court.

Frankly, in the years this writer has observed politics, nothing comes close to comparing with the rampant corruption of this Administration, not even during the Nixon years.

Nixon and the Watergate conspirators look like choirboys compared to the jokers that populate this Administration.

In addition, the Court will eventually be forced to rule on the dreadful decision of the Obama DOJ suing the state of Arizona.

That, too, could send the Obama doctrine of open borders to an early grave, given that the Administration refuses to enforce federal law on illegal aliens.

And finally, the biggie that could potentially send the entire house of cards tumbling in a free-fall is the latest revelation concerning the Obama-Holder Department of Justice and its refusal to pursue the New Black Panther Party.

The group was caught on tape committing felonies by attempting to intimidate Caucasian voters into staying away from the polls.

A whistle-blower who resigned from the DOJ is now charging Holder with the deliberate refusal to pursue cases against blacks, particularly those who are involved in radical hate-groups, such as the New Black Panthers, who have been caught on tape calling for the murder of white people and their babies.

This one is a biggie that could send the entire Administration crumbling — that is, if the Justices have the guts to draw a line in the sand at the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Better Eye Protection.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
I just called my Mom and told her about a 'new' eye protection product that my eye doctor gave me to relieve my blurry, fuzzy- wuzzy, tired eyes. I love to read and do about 3-4 hours of intense reading and research almost every day, and I like to touch base on Face Book, but my eyes get tired, dry and blurry. One eye doc years ago told me to use Visine-- as he did too, but my 'new' eye doc lady said NOT TO USE THAT PRODUCT -- as it was making my eye symptoms worse. The 'new' product is called: Soothe xp, and you cal buy it OTC at most drug stores/ pharmacies. She gave me a small sample, and another product called: Systane ultra... which I have not tried yet.

I just love to share the good things in my life with other good people I met, hoping that "cast your bread upon the water-- and it will return to you" verse will come true to me-- and of course it does. One way or another God's sees all our life and it is recorded. "Store up your treasures in heaven where moth and rust cannot consume." True-- we cannot 'buy' or work our way into heaven, but Christians ought to try hard to be "Christ-like" after they receive the Holy Spirit which will guide you with power and discernment.

I have so much going on in February, and my way of keeping track of appointments, etc., is my calendar, but many people now days use their Blackberry. I just read an article about the threat of major cyber attack by China, etc., and that could prove to be devastating! Better to get back to SOME
"low tech"/ survival ways of living.. 'Plan B and C' stuff. Just my opinion.

I had to wait at home for the 'Oxygen man' to come to my humble home and take away the used/ empty Oxygen bottles and replace them-- and he took away Sharon's Oxygen extractor because she is not expected to come home any more, as her health is too ragged with her lumbar spine crumbling, bad heart and lungs, etc. It kind of made me feel sorry and down-hearted when Mario took away Sharon's stuff to help her breath at home... But if i do bring her home sometimes for a whole day-- she can use my stuff/ oxygen bottles, etc., to breathe, and I always carry some in the truck too. Seems like there is always something to foul up my good, sunny, bright days [nasty old Satan too], and that is when we 'cling to our Bibles and faith in God Almighty [Jehovah] and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We may be dust in the wind-- but Jesus has made mansions for all BELIEVERS in heaven, and the Rapture is near! PTL.

So now my day is pretty much shot. I had hoped to travel to see Sharon again today and bring her what she requested... but then I would hit rush hour in the big city and it gets dark around 4:30PM these days. I found out that I have a low dose of cataracts of the eyes-- and on a scale of 1-10, the eye doc said I have number ONE. Shoot! The days of retirement and leisure are bunk for many of us, and some of my good friends are in bad financial straits right now too. But this is JUST THE BEGINNING, friends, and I would never brag if I had a little more than the neighbor or friends. Bible students KNOW about the future and much worse times while the Congress and the 'Chief' just goof around pretending that everything will somehow be alright....Ha! They are blinded by the devil, and waste time while 'Rome is burning'... some things just never change. "But you can be happy if you've a mind to.." "You can't roller skate in a buffalo herd."

The Only Surviving Album of Auschwitz

This is the story of a Hungarian Jewish woman who survived Auschwitz and found a coat belonging to a guard which she took to shield her from the cold immediately after her liberation. In the pocket of this coat she found a photo album. It contained pictures of what went on in this extermination camp. Imagine her reaction when she saw a picture of herself coming off of the train as well pictures of her family who were already murdered. This album at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem was donated by this woman in 1980 and will forever be displayed there. When you have 5 minutes of peace and quiet in front of your computer,watch it and consider passing it around to people that you know so they can share it and know about it. It is truly moving

Can a Believer have Doubts?

Tom's Journal.

Today wasn't too bad but I decided to just rest up at home for a while--Saturday, so I might have some energy to get up early on Sunday. I just don't know/ understand why my muscles and joints hurt so bad most of the time-- and my meds ought to be sufficient to take care of the pain, and I don't believe I have a cold or Flu. Could it be the antibiotics the VA wants me to take for any post-op infection?? And then, I could figure it out if just the bad, replaced knee just hurt-- but it's the whole body. Maybe I am doing too much house work and traveling/ chores and shopping on my own-- but then, I don't have any 'support group' in this one horse town-- never did, except for the church shoveling my snow... PTL, and they are a true blessing in that regard. Thank you, friends! I would be lost without my email and FB, etc.

It's kind of funny how my Mom and I send each other gifts of money for special occasions, like: She sent me a fifty dollar bill for an 'early birthday gift', and then I recently sent her a $50 bill for her 'early birthday gift, both in Feb... lol. For some reason she sent me another birthday card with $25, so I thought I would bring over a special Yugoslavian bottle of 'plum juice' and a cheese cake-- but since I could not reach her by phone to see if she would be there at home today-- I just stayed home and enjoyed the dog's company. Everyone seems to be so busy now days! I got the new "brain box"/ computer installed into my truck, but then got a repair estimate from the repair shop-- because a punk who backed his boss's company cargo van into the back of my truck last week-- over $1000, and it will take 3 days work to fix it next week!! I am glad that I did call the cops on that goofy guy who refused to give me his driver's license card and name! I was not even there at the time-- but was visiting my wife at her nursing home. Sometimes you just got to wonder if there was both a mommy and daddy at home training him while he was growing up-- and that is one of the good benefits of marriage-- to raise a child PROPERLY! BTW, who wants to pay for other peoples' abortions with our taxes-- thanks to the many lies of Planned Parenthood-- and their back room butcher shops ?? Hey! Your Congressmen needs to hear from you! Hello! But if you voted for Mr. Obama-- that's OK... you got what you wanted. those folks can't read the Bible either.... sorry. 2+2=4. God's Pro-Life!

The statement: 'Once Saved-- always Saved' is explained down below in a short article, and things like this always make me smile inside and reassure me that the very BEST policy is to cling closely to the Lord and the BIBLE. I keep pounding my drum... that, 'If we don't put money in the checking account-- how in the world can we continue to write out checks or use our debit card !! [The same goes for our own Gov't... lol]. Sooner or later we are going to get caught flat footed, and in deep trouble, friends. A 'man's heart will be where his riches/ treasures are.' I keep saying that a Christian can still have a great time on earth for the most part if he obeys God and studies his Bible-- but just try to "walk on the wild side of Satan" and you might get away with it for a while... but it's like playing the slot machines at some Casino. The Casino has your number-- and they are there to make a profit-- and a fool out of YOU! I know a fine, hard working lady who has a gambling problem and now she is 3 months behind on her mortgage payments. I guess I just love the simple logic of things, and I like to share them with others whom I feel have a good chance of surviving.

Sharon had a rough time of it with her low BP and trouble breathing all week, up and down, but says that she feels better today. I will see her tomorrow again. If only she could learn to keep her cell phone with her, and charge it up before she goes to sleep at night....

Warm Regards,

Can A Believer Have Doubts?

Q. I read recently that a true believer can not ‘lose’ their faith or have doubts; that if they did they couldn’t possibly have been saved in the first place, for the Holy Spirit would not allow such a thing.

A. True believers cannot lose their faith because it’s a gift from God (Ephes. 2:8-9). At the moment of salvation He assumes responsibility for keeping us and seals the Holy Spirit inside us to guarantee our salvation (2 Cor 1:21-22). Remember, it’s the shepherd’s job to keep the sheep.

But it’s natural for us to have doubts, because the devil plants them in our minds, just like he did with Eve. (“Did God really say …?”) The Holy Spirit counsels us to believe God and resist the devil but cannot control our thoughts. It’s our job to recall God’s promises and use them to repel the enemy’s attack. (2 Cor 10:3-5) It’s one of the reasons that knowing the Scripture is so important.

Total Knee Replacement: Photos

What is a "knee replacement"?

Sometimes also called "resurfacing", this operation involves the removal of the damaged, worn ends of the thigh (femur), and leg (tibia) bones that make up the knee joint, as well as the back of the kneecap (patella). The bone ends are precisely reshaped and recapped with metal surfaces, with special plastic liners added as a bearing surface that promotes low friction gliding between metal and plastic.

How is it done?

Basically, this resurfacing project is stepwise precision carpentry. After an incision is made, the surgeons remove the damaged portions and surfaces of the bones using guides or jigs, and oscillating saws. Precise amounts of bone are removed, usually between 2 and 12 mm. The ends of the bones are shaped to accommodate the prosthesis to be used. Trial, or test prosthetic components are then used to evaluate the fit, range of motion, stability, alignment, and balance of the soft tissues. When all is satisfactory, the final prosthetic components are cemented into place, and the surgical wound is closed.

Current trends: smaller incisions and computer-assisted, "navigated" knee replacement surgery...

How large is the incision?

The photos below show a somewhat larger than normal exposure, in order to show the component parts. In other words, the incision shown is longer than what is typically used. The smallest incision possible, yet practical, is ideal. The incision must be big enough for the surgeons to be able to see what they are doing. The current trends are for smaller incisions, to reduce scarring, stiffness, and weakness, and to allow a faster recovery.

How is a computer helpful?

When knee replacements were first done, bone cuts were made by eye. Next came guides and jigs, placed on or in the bones to more precisely define the cuts. Now, computers, or navigation systems are used to assists with the placement of the cutting guides, for even more precision. The computers rely on the input of landmark mapping data done with an electronic stylus to create a 3D program of the limb. The theory is that a more precise set of bone cuts may facilitate better replacement component alignment, and hopefully, enhance the longevity of the replacement. This theory is not yet proven, but is intuitive. This photo shows the computer camera system and video monitor used during the procedure.

Left knee incision during knee exposure and with knee extended (straight) shows wear behind patella (reflected backward on the right) and in trochlear femoral groove (in center of the photo).

Further exposure with knee flexed (bent) shows a very common wear pattern on the medial (inner) condyle (knuckle) of the femur with complete loss of surface cartilage adjacent to tip of retractor. The patella (right side, still flipped), has been prepared for placement of a plastic prosthesis (see below), as the worn cartilage has been resected, and anchor holes have been drilled.

Left knee: making surface bone cuts with oscillating saw from above, removing damaged bone from the femur, using a cutting guide. The soft tissues are carefully protected with retractors.

Left knee: a cutting guide is prepared for removing damaged bone from the top of the tibia. The saw will be used through the slot near the top and front of the guide. The long guide with T-handle above goes down the length of the tibia to help establish satisfactory alignment for a precise cut.

Left knee in extension: the final prosthesis in place. The round white plastic disk is the back of the flipped patella, the silver component caps the lower end of the femur, and the white tray below the femur is the combined plastic-metal component on the upper end of the tibia. All components have been cemented with a very thin layer bone cement.

Left knee flexed: after complete resurfacing "total knee replacement". The wound is closed, and rehabilitation can begin.

The Muslim Brotherhood.

Tom's Journal.

Have some of you good people ever had nightmares about being on a nasty, up hill tread mill-- not able to get off --Ha! ?? Well, that's a good synopsis of the AMC/ Chrysler assembly line... lol. Just kidding... Except I know for a fact that there were times that men and women had to use the rest rooms really bad and the boss just jerked them around. But if the women were 'good looking' it seemed as though they got special treatment... Sorry, but that IS the truth, and I have seen it many times in many companies.

Some of us have legitimate fears/ phobias of having one thing after another pile down on us, like: bad things come in 3's-- but that may just be an 'old wives tale.' And the Bible even mentions that term/ phrase: "Old wives' tales." And then, there are days that even when you try hard to control your every step and action-- but you continue to run into "stone walls" and 'chase your own tail, and it seems like everything is against you!' I think that smart and skilled people have LESS misfortunes in life-- but that doesn't mean they never learned at the 'school of hard knocks.' So it's good not to brag too much, IMO [in my opinion], because adversity and death befall us all, eventually.

I took the dog, Deuce, the Rottweiler, to see/ visit Sharon today, as she requested, and most of the nursing home staff and patients love to see and touch out noble beast-- and he is good with people-- and a gentle, trained, 'Service Animal.' I want to get him registered as a "Therapy Animal" and take him to the VA hospitals, and nursing homes etc. to cheer people up-- and then share the Gospel and a small Bible tract with them about the salvation of Jesus Christ.
Well, today, after I brought some requested Granny Smith apples to my wife on the 2nd floor at Woodstock nursing home in Kenosha, WI., I steered my power scooter and the dog out to the North parking lot to find a young guy telling me that he was sorry for backing into my 2007 Ram truck and breaking the Right rear tail light and also damaging the metal on the Right side. He [Josh V] seemed very nervous and kept apologizing so that I told him not to worry several times -- that it was not a super bad thing, and I even thanked him for 'manning up' to take responsibility and staying at the scene. But he was reluctant to give me his name, number and driver's license! After he kept feeding me lame excuses and refused to give his proper name and info, I climbed into my truck and said, "OK", and called the police, because I have been jerked around before and got stung by some young people-- so that I ended up paying for damages that were NOT MY FAULT! Josh worked for a towing truck company and his boss did finally come and was very cordial -- but I had already called the cops, and we worked things out, and I finally left to go home. But the whole thing ate up my time, and now I have to get the truck repaired! Now I have to bother someone to drop off my truck for what ever length of days it will take to get fixed-- and be without my power scooter!

I thought I handled myself well, and even witnessed to the guy's boss and gave him a Bible tract-- and left him with a hand shake and a good feeling! They wanted me to go to their 'selected body shop' where they had some deal and did business... and said that THEY would pay the whole bill-- and I might have done just that had it not been for young Josh not co-operating with me on the pure basics of good manners in giving me the legal information! Oh well.... I told the boss that the kid needs more driving lessons by going to a vacant lot and practicing his back up skills and learning to use his two mirrors better. I was young once too.. lol.

When I was up with Sharon, a RN walked into our room and explained that Sharon had Bronchitis! With her system being so stressed out with constant coughing, and compromised with Sarcoidosis with only 30% of her lungs working--bad heart and COPD, etc., we were shocked that she didn't get that important info BEFORE! Sharon is in bad shape but doesn't want to go back to the KMH hospital-- but I said that she must to survive, and so the RN made arraignments to see the doctor much sooner. I am not crazy about the 'nonchalant' way the staff takes care of my loved one! And then she found out that her patient neighbor across the hall was taken to the hospital--just about to die-- and that made Sharon very depressed. As I have explained many times, it's so important to have a loved one with the patient as a 'PATIENT ADVOCATE' to deal with problems that the patient is too sick to handle!! I only WISH that I had someone like that in MY corner while in the mean spirited Milwaukee VAMC when I had my total knee replacement surgery 2 months ago! Things could have been less stressful for me. And I am not done with those 'people' yet...

I shared a new Bible thought that I just learned about on Sunday morning before church on the INTERNET from 1st Corinthians 2:7 + 14 about the term Mysterian-- Greek word, and Sharon and I studied for a short time, prayed together, and I tried to encourage her-- AND the RN who was there later-- during my visit today. If something should happen to me, like I get killed on the way home, did I take every opportunity to share the Word of God and the salvation of the Gospel?? Did I set a good example? Did I have guts enough to hand someone a Bible tract or an inexpensive Bible? Why has God put me on earth and allowed me to continue living after intense combat in Vietnam: 68-70, and multiple accidents and near death episodes? If the good Lord uses Tom Schuckman as a tool, a hammer or a chisel-- I rejoice for that special honor and privilege !! THANK YOU, LORD!

I honestly don't know if I will ever see people again after our short encounters/ Bible discussions/ conversations, etc., -- but I do know that God has used me to advance His work by 'planting a tiny seed' in peoples' hearts and minds... and they won't have any excuse if they are 'left behind' after the Rapture. Friends and Readers, what ever 'gifts', powers, and 'tools' we have-- let us use them for the Lord's work. You say that you are not learned or schooled in the Bible? PICK UP THE BIBLE-- THE BOOK, AND START READING IT !! Confess your sins to the heavenly Father, accept the Son, Jesus Christ, as your personal Savior and do His will. Check out this fine web site to get a pure, understandable Bible for low cost at:
'Happiness is a BI-PRODUCT of serving God.'

If you don't get started now/ today... then when?
Before you start reading and studying the Bible, ask for the Holy Spirit to help you understand the scriptures, but only in humility to serve the Lord -- not to boast or show off your knowledge to others.

Thank you for your continued prayers. I know that I will need a lot of extra strength if things with my beloved wife go 'South' ... and no one lives forever. And with our many aches and pains, I know of many Christian who would GLADLY love for God to "call them home to heaven.. NOW!" For the most part-- I know that I will have to 'go it alone' as I don't have many able friends here where I love... most are old and infirm. I still wonder if it was a smart thing to have surgery without a real support group...
Now that the football season is over, and the 'best team from Wisconsin won', we can get back to more important things that 'lay up more precious treasures in heaven, where moth and rust cannot consume.' I am still worried about any infection in my knee-- and the VA only got on that subject a whole 2 months AFTER my knee surgery. And if I need to have more work/ surgery done on my knees or what ever, it won't be the Milwaukee VA who does it ! PTL. Telling the absolute TRUTH, as I see it, is very important to me.

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman

Sharon was in the ER last night.

Tom's Journal.

What a slippery Sunday in Wisconsin after church-- and still snowing again with about 4 inches more on the ground! I had to break my promise to Sharon about coming to visit her today-- as I started to proceed East for a mile, and slip-sliding away EVEN WITH MY 4 WD on! Who would it serve to have me land in a ditch or a auto crash and have to call for help-- even with my bad hurtful knees today? And i will have to fix my own dinner, but I'll manage. Sorry Sharon...

Man! Did I ever learn something new in my reading this morning and I had to share this tid bit with a brother named Joe Belinger at church after Sunday school-- [1 Cor. 2:7, and 14.] that he did. The Greek term, Mysterion, struck me as a silver bullet right between the eyes, and I got hooked on the below article but had to leave it half read or I'd be late for church this morning. Of course, the article is easy to understand [IMHO] but the implications were fantastic for me! It explained why I was 'smart' in some things about the Bible while others-- even pastors, with more formal 'education' seemed far behind! The same thing applies to a father and his individual children-- as they are all "different" in intelligence/ skills, and personality, and that's why we should NEVER compare one to another, nor anyone else!! We should NEVER say: "Why can't you be like your brother?" And how many people have we hurt and wounded with our savage tongues in our lives. My own mouth has gotten me in to many tall heaps of troubles and tiger pits. Father in heaven, please forgive ME for all the times my mouth nearly got me killed or caused a relationship to fail. Mea Copa..., in Jesus' name.

Well, Sharon had to be shipped to the ER at KMH [Kenosha Memorial Hospital] last night at 9|:30PM, but now she is back in her nursing home this morning as she informed me. They docs gave her some medicine to help her gain control of her breathing, etc. I was worried all night about her, and trapped in my own house in this snowy Winter, when even my 4 by 4 won't help me! Half the time I call or email her-- my message doesn't get to her, or she may be so weak that she can't get to the communicators. One of these times her heart and lungs will just give out-- and she will be gone. But she is Saved and going to heaven, PTL. Her battle will be over where there are no more tears nor pain-- in HEAVEN with the Lord. I find myself longing for just that same relief, yet God is keeping this busted down, pained old Soldier alive for SOME reason, and I must 'stand to' and accept my duty until that time when something big happens or I die.

The Super Sign-- Israel.

Tom's Journal.

As I have said so many times before... I love how some Bible scholars/ serious Bible students are so articulate! I humbly try to follow in their foot steps in my own rustic way, and we all continue to learn new things and new words. Just like today when I looked up the term: EPIPHANY -- that moment of surprise and understanding/ Aha!/ when someone finally sees the light and understands something he has been looking for! Such moments are often life changing-- for the better-- just like when I finally found the Lord and was determined to do HIS will [instead of mine]. God is still working on me. PTL.

As I watch some news channels on TV and Radio/ Internet, I get the feeling that the 'powers that be'/ Left Wing Socialist type Gov't controlled media wants to stir things up and make folks scared and frightful. And we all ought to know that gas, oil, cotton and food WILL go up. As if we don't have enough stress in our lives already... lol. Sure, bad things in our lives WILL GET WORSE, and we will just have to deal with them-- but biblical Christians have a secret 'weapon' -- a certain solid gold belief and understanding that God Almighty and HIS Son, Jesus Christ, are controlling the entire game! People continue to pray the 'Lord's Prayer' in Matt. 6:9, yet totally DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT!

My print reading for welders instructor at MATC [Milwaukee Area Technical College] told the class-- but me especially, that the answers and understanding were already in my brain-- that he will help me to understand eventually-- and that made me feel good inside. He was showing us how to turn an object around/ rotate it, in our minds-- to see what was on the opposite side. He got off track sometimes and would teach us many things though unrelated [but so interesting] to the print reading class subject matter, but I loved it. He may have been just a tad racist-- but from his years of experience-- if some folks were not mature enough to shut up and listen-- he didn't have time for them or their child-like foolishness.... sorry. It was one time when we had a short quiz that the teacher told us to pass our papers to the right of us-- to be corrected by another person, that I had a small 'Epiphany moment' when I could not read the other guy's 'writing', and the instructor made a fast cryptic joke to me that made me laugh hard -- and I could read his mind, and we became good friends, even when I had to quit school near the end-- because I needed to find employment in my chosen field of welding-- quick $$$. {This all happened when I was very near homeless in the Winter of 1994-95-- but then I got called back to work with Chrysler-- big bucks and bennies, in May of '95!} I had already graduated from another college a few years prior and had plenty of OJT from past jobs/ experience, but I was seeking to improve my skills and get certified in Heli-Arc / stainless and aluminum welding... As I walked though those halls at MATC and over heard many things-- I figured out that many of the ghetto kids didn't have a clue as to why they were there.... sorry. The rich kids all went to Marquette University in Milwaukee, to become Dentists and Doctors, etc.

We Christians have a most important job right now to share the Gospel with people and tell them exactly what the below article has to say-- that no matter what lies and baloney the so-called 'News Media' spins --and worries people, concerning the big trouble in the Middle East-- God's Plan is rolling just fine, and is right on target! The tiny country of Israel is out gunned, out numbered, out manned, with many times over powered with mighty rockets and weapons of destruction---abandoned by the cowardly leader and Dem controlled Congress, of the USA and all other nations at this time! BUT... God will allow [and help] Israel to be victorious and win this next war with her blood thirty, hateful Muslim neighbors!! And many people will HAVE TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD WON THIS FIGHT! But only if we tell unbelievers right now, during and shortly after that war! It's all in black and white-- IN THE BIBLE! Go figure: After the smoke and dust from that battle/ war have cleared and Israel will but her temple again with much more land added as spoils of war-- the Church won't be needed anymore on earth-- and the RAPTURE will take place.
Glenn Beck doesn't have the answer [or doesn't want to share it] and he is NOT a Christian! But he does explain what is happening now, politically. I feel strongly about this coming war and just witnessed to my own mother today about it over the phone.

Please share this blog post, if you think it has merit. Then you will be witnessing too.

Israel: The Super Sign of the End-Times (Part 2)

Posted: 03 Feb 2011 08:50 AM PST

By Todd Baker B'rit Hadashah Ministries Part of the reason for the return of Israel’s Messiah will be to enforce the everlasting decree of God’s land grant to the Jewish people and to overthrow the nations of the world in league with the anti-Christ who will violently attempt to take the land away from them (Zech. 12-14; Ezekiel 47:13-48:35). In fact, the boundaries God gave for the Promised Land

Bible Truth.

Tom's Journal.

Through all my years of witnessing to people of all sorts -- most of them would rather jump any other place then listen to what the Bible has to say about the world melt down of money/ currency and economics. They want their 'cake and eat it too !' They LOVE the world of Satan and all the corruption of sin the world can give. I spent some time there myself, but I was always hungry to know the real truth of the Bible, and unfortunately it took me so long to find it---BUT I DID FIND IT.

I was watching some of Glenn Beck today when a Christian Evangelist tried to tell what the Bible says about the political Muslim movement in the Middle East... but Glenn shut him down twice!

Christians who honestly STUDY the Bible seriously KNOW that this soon coming war with Israel will be won [unseemly] by ISRAEL !! When you look at a map of the Middle East-- it's truly a 'David and Goliath' scenario as Israel is out vastly numbered, out gunned 100 to 1. Actually, Israel will over run many parts of her foes and recapture their land for herself!! I think that even America will abandon and cut our support of Israel-- and God will curse America for that reason, among others. God the Father will/ is 'humiliating one of our national gods-- the god of wealth and riches.' We are about to collapse anyway from our economic bumbling, borrowing and stupid economics... lol. All Christians in the USA and other places will suffer too when these things happen, as we are poor humans too, BUT, we have God's assurance that the true Believers will be Rapture-d up to heaven soon enough-- hopefully BEFORE the Trib starts--- but if later, so be it, we are Christians and will do what the Lord tells us. So... this news ought to sooth some of the mental anguish and worry that many of us have today with all the bad, scary news we hear. God has never broken His promises or covenants. God cannot lie [Titus 1:2].

Reading and studying the Bible daily is how God 'speaks to US.' Praying to God is how WE speak to HIM. We also communicate by our actions, in my opinion. So how ought we on earth now use our time-- knowing all this information? You tell me....

I saw Sharon again today and brought her some grapefruits and a radio so she could get WVCY- Christian radio, 107.7 FM, and you can get that fine station on the Internet too. I donate to them every year because I feel that their programming is so good and Bible based. Sharon has a lot of trouble breathing even while she has her Oxygen hose hooked up to herself, and that worries me! She can't take a deep breath without choking and coughing, and just getting on her feet stresses her out and tires her so much. I pray for her constantly-- but she is really in the Lord's hands. I bought a $130 gold pocket watch and gave it to her the other day last week, so she put it on a silver chain around her neck, and she LOVES it, and gets many fine compliments!! I just want her to have some happiness in life-- she is my dear wife. Her new Lap top PC and even her cell phone don't always work well at Woodstock nursing home with 'thick walls' and poor quality maintenance people/ staff. It's hard finding a better place because most of them 'guard' their past records-- so you can't check them out before you check in.
As always, we ask your prayers, and emails/ comments.

Calling the Economic Dictator

Posted: 03 Feb 2011 01:15 PM PST

By Wilfred J. Hahn Eternal Value Review Policymakers around the world continue to bemoan the state of world economic affairs, desperately grasping for solutions. The major challenge today is that nations are inclined to search out solutions that meet their own vested interests. After a long period of global convergence (driven primarily by globalization) globalism is going into reverse. Global
