How little we actually KNOW.

Tom's Journal.

I like to 'mark' places, times, events and things learned with some sort of 'marker' that will serve as a 'link' to summon up that nugget of research/ wisdom so that it's easy to organize in my own mind, and thus share it with others in a easy way that makes sense.  Teaching tools.  Things learned, especially from hard ship, hurt and tragedy.   Never let a good lesson go without some sort of marker!   I wanted this last hospital visit to mean something to me as a 'training tool' --and pain is a good way to help stimulate one's memory.  If we just let pain come and go without assigning it some value or reason or meaning-- then it's lost and without benefit!  I did just that [marked something] the other day when reading a piece from Exodus 15:23, and a great footnote from my Old KJV  Scofield Bible yesterday, that tied into Romans 5:3-4.  Let us say and understand that many things that God "allows" us to experience are not necessarily punitive-- but EDUCATORY [meant for our teaching/ instruction]!  If we spend the money on 'fine tools' [Scofield Study Bibles], why not learn how to get the most out of them??  And then why not SHARE these juicy tidbits with others who want and need to hear them??  As I have said before... few things are brought into our lives that can't be used as a good teaching objective lesson that we can benefit from.  Even sickness, hurt and pain-- as from hospital visits-- so I've learned that important thing too this past week [along with all the suffering, etc] can be used to help us train and learn.  Ask yourselves, "How can I turn this adversity around and figure out the 'silver lining' or golden nugget, with in and benefit from it somehow-- make use of the time at hand, instead of just languishing in a sometimes 'hostile' environment of egotistical unbelievers?"  And don't forget to pray just for something like this to help us learn!   And we OUGHT to be witnessing the Gospel to others at every opportunity too while in the hospital-- if possible, and that means putting up with some of the smug, goofy staff with long suffering-- one of the  fruits of the Spirit-- Eph. 5:22, if possible.  {Smile}.   And these are some of the things that I work on daily, also praying for/ asking the Father.

The article below is packed with important ways to understand where we are right now in the main stream of time!  I am again reassured that my time frame is on target, and things are popping just as they should. Thank you all for your many prayers.  I figure I lost about 45 pounds in the past 3 weeks, but now need to get  into a more 'balanced' diet to insure my rapid healing of tissue now, and I also need to build up my immunity to fight off any more infections.  I try to build myself UP BEFORE I go to a hospital to ward off all manner of diseases and infections-- as hospitals are actually cess- pools of filth!!  Sorry... folks.


With all the killer storms, earthquakes, wars and disease dominating our news, it's not surprising that recent studies indicate a ballooning interest in End Times Prophecy. What is surprising is how little most Christians actually know about it.
