Friends! I have only been 'beating this drum' about the total destruction of Damascus for the past 3 YEARS!! Now-- people will know and agree that I have some credibility.. lol -- but it was always there in God's own Word, the Bible ALL THE TIME!! This shook me a little bit as far as thinking that this is yet ANOTHER REASON, why the Lord 'may have caused' the 'dissolving' of a current emotional relationship of mine with a woman one hour North of where I live, in Wisconsin....not that I really want to air my dirty laundry on this platform.. sorry about that. But it makes sense to me.
I can't say for certain except that a deacon friend from church enlightened me about Romans 8:28, half a year ago..."And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." And there is a lot more powerful stuff in that same chapter written by Paul! Romans is one of the more deeper books and needs to be read well, with the aid of the Holy Spirit to fully understand, IMHO [in my humble opinion]. And if a so-called Christian never even read that book at all, just think how much they are missing!! If I find a 'young or new Christian' -- I tell them to first read the book of John, and then the book of Romans, to get a firm grip on the Gospel, and what it means to be a real Christian and learn about Salvation. Then, I tell them to read the whole Bible starting from Genesis-- the reason being that our Salvation from hell and getting Raptured up [or Saved before some deadly accident of disease takes us BEFORE the Rapture happens, has got to be the most important thing in our lives!! It's all about PRIORITY, again, dear friends! If you see a youngster running into the busy street, or see them putting their hands on an open flame of a fire-- you must take immediate, fast action!! Same with Salvation. Does that make sense? It's the 2nd most important thing we Christians are charged to do on earth-- the first being that we are to worship, love, serve God and bring glory to His name.
The same thing: when I first opened this 'Hal Lindsey Report' and read it, I figured that I needed to post it right away, before I got side-tracked or waited too long, or what if I died tonight? Here, I know that at least 115 people will most likely get and read this Blog post, and might pas it on to their friends, from: "TOM'S JOURNAL", no matter what happens to me. Yes! You see, I AM a child of God, His servant, His Soldier of Jesus Christ... EVEN IF I DO SOME GOOFY, TERRIBLE MESS UPS, and stupid things, being very imperfect, still a sinner until I take my last breath on earth! Let us also give honor, respect and credit to Hal Lindsey, and praise to the Holy Spirit too, of course. I am nothing but a lowly servant, a mouth piece, doing the work of my Master. He, in turn, LOVES ME, and protects me-- even though my poor old heart be crushed and tears in eyes when someone I care for hurts me, breaks a promise/ commitment' relationship. But.. better that I should suffer sorrow and pain now-- than miss that 'flight to heaven!' PTL.
Things are starting to come back together for me and make sense again, and it's just me and the hound dog, looking to have some baloney sandwich and kick back for the night. My old Army buddy, Jimmy Hood, from South Carolina, just called me, and asked me to cite more scriptures and type them out so folks don't need to look them up their selves. Suggestion noted, Jim!

By Hal Lindsey The Hal Lindsey Report You would think after a half-century of studying Bible prophecy, teaching it, writing about it, and producing a weekly television program on the subject for the last 15 years, nothing would surprise me. Not so. I am continually amazed by how precisely the predictions of the ancient prophets are unfolding in the news. How's this for prophetic

The majority of its inhabitants were Greek, although there was a mixture of ethnic groups, including Jews. Paul’s letters to the Church at Thessalonica are accepted as authentic
This Week’s Feature Article by Jack Kelley If you believe as I do that the Bible teaches a rapture of the Church to occur before Daniel’s 70th Week begins then you’ve no doubt wondered what will happen to those among your friends and family who will miss it. Will they get another chance to be [...]
