More Signs about Israel.

Tom's Journal.

I am getting a funny feeling in my gut that God, common sense [but NO BODY ELSE] is trying to tell me something...eminent and critical-- but the devil is pulling me the opposite way at the same time.  Part of the answer is found below in the short articles presented.  I think the smart thing to do is to take a deep breath, step back, and re-group myself, then pray often and study to get the real 'answer' from God.  I believe that there ARE millions of Christians just like me who believe the same as I do--- but Satan has certainly blinded the majority--as was foretold. [It is said and I firmly believe it-- that there are MORE real, biblical Christians hiding 'under ground' in China-- than in the USA and Europe combined!!]

All indications are such that Israel is planning a strategic move/ attack/ surgical, pre-emptive strike-- for self preservation in the very near future, but they have such great Security/ 'tight lips' that everyone else can only speculate-- and that's good.   Americans love to blab all over themselves... lol... sorry.  Even most of the  fine, pretty ladies that I meet and date lately don't have the foggiest idea what is going on farther than their nose,regarding the Middle East/ Israel thing and Scripture, although some are Christians and Saved-- and I like them very much and treat them well/ generously, but Scripture says:  'Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers.' ~2nd Cor. 6:14.  Ha!  The chances of me finding a real, knowledgeable Christian woman near me that could relate to what I am talking about are slim... sorry again, but then how many people, no matter what church they attend, if any, have the love of  bible study like my circle of friends on certain FB groups/ sites, etc.???--sorry, again!  However, I NEVER look down and make fun of ANY BODY, and it took me many years to get to where I am now--PTL.  Please don' t take this the wrong way, and  have much to learn too -- Lord help me.  The very same can be said about most men too-- and I am NO WAY Sexist.
Ha!  I DON'T HAVE ANY SPECIAL GIFTS, BRAINS, or a special channel from God!!!  All I have is the Holy Spirit and a will to read the right things!    I have just posted a fine place to learn and hear/ see the truth-- as listed below.   I have a good IQ, BUT I'M NOT A GENIUS.   I am also a SINNER MAN!  Not bragging about that either...

I pretty much broke up with a beautiful lady from MN because of a difference of agreement about just this thing I am talking about right now, and it broke my heart--shattered it, so that I am still very upset about it.  It was a matter of "priorities" but she said in her bio that she was 'Liberal' and maybe I was just too blindly in love to see that.. and I suppose Lot [in the book of Genesis] had to make a decision NOT to turn around when his beloved wife did that foolish thing.  Awww, heck, maybe I am just too selfish, needy, lonely, or like to take the path of least resistance, as I keep searching for the elusive happiness on earth.  And if that's true I need to be taken to the wood shed for a good whooping.  Guess I am a very slow learner, after all. [sigh..].  Maybe, 'ours is not to ponder why-- ours is but to do or die...'  Ha! Well, If I were were counseling another person with my same problem I would give them the same answers.   I have know many good, close friends in the past who loved me as a brother, but I was married and that posed a main priority of caring for MY family first, but tried to help them as much as I could.    I keep 'chanting the old mantra': "count all your blessings", especially now days.  I wonder how many people will be able to dig their way through my cryptic words tonight.  People have married me in the past mostly for my Chrysler pension and benefits.  Perhaps I ought to cop the idea that I shall NEVER know real happiness on this 6000 year old earth, and let it go at that.

Love and Big Christian Bear Hugs,

By Joseph Farah WorldNetDaily A U.S. intelligence source has told G2Bulletin there are more indicators Israel is preparing to launch an attack – possibly against Iran. And if it does, it may be looking at how to undertake a multi-front strategy that would include an assault against Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in the Gaza Strip or even Syria, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2

By Jim Fletcher Prophecy Matters With Tunisia and Libya now going over to Sharia law, Egypt heading that way, and other regimes becoming more destabilized in the Middle East, one wonders how the U.S. State Department and White House could be so naïve. Are they? Of course, we helped arm and train the Taliban a generation ago, against the Soviets, so nothing should surprise us. I well

The message below is of importance to all combat Vietnam Vets[ and spouses] and not for the 'faint- hearted.'  I am very blessed  to have contact and fellowship with a double handful of other combat Vets who share important, constructive news and advice with each other in our various net works, phone, email, etc., and it's like a 'sacred brotherhood of an elite group' and we speak our own language!  And YES, I AM PROUD TO BE IN THEIR NUMBER!  May God bless my brothers in Arms, and let the Holy Spirit strengthen them in their last days, with dignity.  

I would like to speak about the importance of a SMILE and the power behind it.  An honest smile from a person who has pure godly love in their heart is worth a handful of pure silver, IMHO!  And since I've been dating again, for a serious long term relationship- monogamy, I go thru MANY women, trying to figure them out and ferret out the truth.  But looking at their pictures-- I past up all the females that can't even muster a smile.  Sure, looks can be deceiving but I am not looking for a sour puss, whose 'glass is half empty.'   And there are plenty of gold diggers, users, players out there, especially in these hard times that will only get HARDER in coming months.  There just may be a short little 'spurt of economic glee' ONLY because that toad in the WH wants to get re-elected...  grrrrr..HA!   But the Bible promises us that things in the 'Last Days' WILL GET MUCH WORSE!  Yet, real Christian can smile and know that their salvation is near, and the Lord will take care of them, no matter what comes down the pike!  YOU should ALL be HAPPY [but not].

A buddy sent me this message today from his own blog:

"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;  and he that winneth souls is wise.  
Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth:  much more the wicked and the sinner."   ~ Proverbs 11: verses 30 and 31. KJB, or course...
Friends, I am afraid that my search for the right lady has turned into a ministry of sorts..LOL, but if the Lord wants this for me-- then so be it.  I am a lonely man, especially after loosing my dear soul mate/ wife, Sharon, this year, April 9th, 2011,and then my only beloved son, Andy, killed on May 10th.  The Lord gives me more than I need to pay my bills-- and still paying for one funeral, that that is just a fact of life.  My goofy Rottweiler male, Deuce, always acts the clown when ever any lady comes over for a date, or just to visit and talk/ chat, and he don't know when to quit.  I can't even hold hands with out him barking or trying to separate us!!   I am a very romantic man, sometimes emotional, still trying to get my head straight-- but I WILL continue to see Christian ladies, with the proper motive in my heart.  Some how we inevitably talk about the Bible, God, and salvation, and most of them are ignorant of them all, but I am a kind, patient listener and we trained, skilled, competent to share my knowledge of the Bible with anyone.  The Holy Spirit engages my brain and summons up all that I know-- to share with them and I make them feel GOOD about themselves and give them hope!!  PTL!

Well, maybe the Lord knows me that well-- that if and when I find a lady who really likes/ loves me for whom and what I am-- my preaching work might slow down a tad-- and I still have not found a good woman.  Maybe the Rapture will come sooner and I will be in heaven along with the millions [prob not billions] of other REAL, biblical Christians taken up before the Great Trib. strikes all those "Left Behind."   Well, that will be the end of my so-called dating... LOL..Ha!    I want you all to know that even with my severe knee, leg and back pain [and the VA could care less], I am not a couch potato, but still doing the Lord's work... and I still need your prayers, please.
    I have a date tomorrow with a Algebra teacher for lunch!  Woo Woo!  I hope she likes me.  Maybe I could use some prayers in this area too-- please, brothers and sisters.  I am doing great with my weight loss program and now just added the kenosha,wi YMCA to my regimen. 

It a great, crisp, sunny Wisconsin day-- be glad in it!

Warm Regards,

VN movie--tell everyone


This link is a preview of the 6 hour film to be shown on the History Channel on Nov 8,9, &10.  I saw the first two hours with some infantry grunts as we met at a reunion in TN, and we were all moved by the detail and presentation. One of our clan helped make the film.  The DVDs can be pre-ordered at
Good presentation, not for the faint of heart.
