Gravy from Heaven.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/ tschuckman@aol.com

Well, friends, and readers,
I've been thinking and posting this same thing for a few years now....duh.  But, again, the Bible clearly explains what type of people we are dealing with here-- the ancient Persians, and the way they think!  Most people will do or read or rely on anything OTHER source other than the truth of the Bible -- and what folly!  And having only a 24 hour day to get all of our stuff in, we have to organize some sane system of PRIORITY, don't we?

Unfortunately, few people on earth see the value of studying the BIBLE and History in their lives, thinking that it might be inaccurate, useless and unprofitable $$$, but they are totally wrong, and the most money I've earned was AFTER I found the Lord!  Part of that is because we are not prone to make goofy mistakes or squander our hard earned money $$$ on foolishness after the Spirit enlightens us....  smile on that note!   BTW...Does anyone know of a GREAT reciepe for beef gravy to put on the meat and mashed potatoes.... please???  tschuckman@aol.com
There is a small 'ma and pop cafe' in Crivitz, WI., that  has the best tasting gravy that you would die for there !!!   Wow!  'Gravy from Heaven!'

Along with this, the preacher/ pastor's sermon was built around Romans 8: 21 -23, etc, which was very encouraging so as to instill all trust in God's promises concerning us -- whom He has 'known about' long before we were even born!!!  His Word is guaranteed and signed in the precious blood of his Son, Jesus Christ, and better than tons of gold!  Terri, managed to hobble to church today too with the aid of her 2 crutches, as she elevated/ rested her sore, pained foot on the pew to her side, and we were both happy to be at that assembly of Christians.  And then, after the service let out a huge cloud burst just came down on us BIG TIME so we all got soaked wet, but we needed the rain.  And then about 20 minutes latter, the sun came out and the rain was over.   It's strange like that here U.P. in the mountains of Upper Michigan.   I am still looking for many more friends up here that I can chum with, and share talents, hobbies and skills... like my wood working and wood carving, etc.  I will try to pray harder and more often. 
    And now, a word to the wise:  "NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE MAN [OR WOMAN] WHO DOESN'T HAVE TO DO IT."  Hello, Honey. 
My dear old buddy and fellow helicopter 'door gunner' --member of the famous 240th Assault  Helicopter Company [AHC], Walter E. Weber,  took a picture of me and a few others at our EM CLUB @ Camp BearCat, RVN: 68-70, when I must have been age 20 or 21,  and now thru the 'grapevine' I just heard that he is dying, with hospice at his side, and dear family.  I believe he was perhaps a year younger than me, smart as a whip, great mechanic, Christian .... and I am beside myself with sorrow and pain.  Sure sometimes we argue and don't agree on everything -- but that's not important, and I believe that most of us suffer from PTSD, anyway.  Prayers and well wishes to my brother, Walter E. Weber, from Galax, VA., and all his family.  I am the dark headed Sp/4 on the Left.  --Tommy Schuckman--
In my humble opinion, Walt is way too young to leave us at this time-- and I think that all his hard, kick butt fighting for his country in Vietnam may have had something to do with his early sickness.  His wife, Mary, and mine all met at D.C. for a great party time and many wild stories that he remembered... and we had a very close bond.  God bless Walt, and his family.

And as for the below article of "when" Israel might do her pre-empted attack against the crazy militarists in nuclear Iran,  do we really think they would post that time in the news???  Ha!  Israel would NEVER trust the flapping mouths in the WH-- with all the leaks by this goofy Administration already??!  'Loose lips sink ships.' 
     My best advice would be to "draw near to Christ, while He may yet be found..."  Repent of our proud ways and humble our bloated hearts that lead to a fall. 

Have a great day.
One so-called 'friend' told me that he thought I was bragging or showing off by attaching some of my older pictures of myself when I didn't weight as much -- so I just might keep them to myself from now on.  What do YOU other good folks think about that?

Warm Regards,
Tommy S

Obama 'Most Hostle' President toward Israel ever.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/ tschuckman@aol.com

I I think AOL or who ever, scrambled my intended text and deleted some of it-- as I feel that they don't want the truth to get out to the general public--- so it seems to me.  But Mr. Bolton speaks the truth, for sure. 
   Dear wife, Terri is full of intense pain after her foot surgery in Green Bay, WI., yesterday, but that is to be expected.  She is a bit hard to get along with and cranky because of the pain, but I know my duty as a husband and will take care of her no matter what.  I love Terri to pieces!! 

As for me, I am now on a serious diet, and saw my good doctor Medina-- at the local VAMC the other day and also set up with the dietitian soon... prayers for at least 70 pounds of shed weight, PLEASE.  I mean business.   I should contact my daughter, Sarah, in CO, who is a smart nutritionist, for more help too. 

A nice lady from church named Kim, came over this morning to take my wife to the women's Bible study a while ago, and that will do her a world of good!!  Thank  you, so much, sister Kim!  God will bless you, I am sure. 

We have been getting copious amounts of rain U.P. in Iron Mtn, MI 49801 these past few days, and that will really help the fresh laid sod that Terri installed last week, plus the many flowers and shrubs.   She has a special talent for making everything beautiful in her life.  SHE is physically beautiful TOO !!!  And I know that I have been blessed to win her love and kindness, Praise the Lord!

Per the short article below, I can't repeat enough the important scripture that Jehovah God PROMISED the children of Israel @ Genesis 12:3,  "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse  him that curseth thee:  and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." 

This means that Father God PROMISED the nation of Israel for all times to protect her from  her enemies unconditionally, and curse all those who would threaten, hurt, abuse, insult His sacred, chosen people.  PERIOD!  Woe to people like obama who is so prideful as to 'throw Israel under the bus!~!!'   For this and many other reasons, America will crumble.   I fought for America [2 years in Vietnam, US ARMY-helicopters, etc] and loved her all my life-- and am a patriot, strong and true -- but my FIRST allegiance is to God and Heaven, and Jesus Christ is my FIRST love, and personal Lord and Savior.   Saying this, I know that I will have many enemies who will want to kill me......  sorry.  My simple response to that is to quote the apostle Paul:  "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."  ~Philippians 1:21.  So if you feel the need to murder a disabled Vietnam Vet, who also worked his whole life and paid lots of taxes @ AMC/ Chrysler for over 30 years, shared the Bible with hundreds and gave away many bibles and bible tracts  out of my own pocket $$$ -- go for it !!   Send me Home-- I am weary and full of physical pain -- do me a favor!  I won't be the first who would die for my Faith and Beliefs. 

Please, brothers and sister...  pray for my  dear wife, Terri, to heal as fast as  possible and have some modicum of comfort, PLEASE.  I am at her beckoned call, and it is a labor of love -- after all the time she took care of me.

Best Regards,
Tommy Schuckman









Bolton: Obama 'Most Hostile' President Toward Israel Ever

Wednesday, 25 Jul 2012 10:57 AM
By Greg McDonald


Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton is calling Barack Obama “the most hostile president” toward Israel since the Jewish state was created, saying his policies have “actually set the peace process back” in the Middle East.
Responding to a tweet Tuesday from Vice President Joe Biden that Obama “has done more for Israel’s security than any president since Harry Truman,” Bolton declared, “That’s just ridiculous.”
“This is the most hostile president since the state of Israel was created,” Bolton told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Tuesday night. “He’s demonstrated that hostility right from the beginning of his administration.”
Bolton — now a Fox News contributor who supports Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign — accused the president of putting “the responsibility for all the turmoil in the region on Israel.”
“By relieving the Palestinians of any real obligation to negotiate, he’s actually set the peace process back,” Bolton charged, referring to early speeches in which the president suggested Israel should be confined to the boundaries established following the 1967 Arab-Israeli conflict known as the Six-Day War.
“This has been very, very restrictive on Israel, and it has cost the United States, and Israel, and its Arab friends in the region,” he added.
Bolton also said Obama’s “treatment of Iran’s nuclear weapons program has been profoundly mishandled” to the point of endangering not only Israel’s security, but the rest of the world as well.
Bolton made the comments as Romney headed off on his first trip abroad as a presidential candidate. Stops are planned for Israel, Poland, and the Olympic Games in London before he returns home to the campaign trail.
Bolton described it as “significant” that Obama has yet to visit Israel as president and chose Egypt as his first trip abroad after taking office.
“The fact that the president went to Egypt to give a major speech to the Muslim world but couldn’t find time to slip into Israel for a visit — you can’t miss the symbolism of that,” Bolton said. “I think, though, it is the broader mistreatment of Israel, of denigrating its role as an important ally, not understanding the contribution it has made to security in the Middle East, that’s the real problem.”
Bolton suggested the point of Romney’s specific visit to Israel is to make it clear that “his administration will treat its friends like friends and its adversaries like adversaries.”

Lay People in the Body of Christ.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/ tschuckman@aol.com


I sincerely hope that most of you good people have digested my last blog post:  "STANDING IN THE WAY." I thought that post was powerful and even startling, to say the least, and I will adjust my own life accordingly.  That would mean, of course NOT investing my hard earned money is certain 'Gov't Financial Products...'  Remember, gentle folks that I used to be licensed in Securities, Investments, Mutual Funds, etc, and all the brains didn't leak out of my ear while I was sleeping last night.... LOL. 

Today, the subject of "Lay People, in the body of Christ" will shred the old time myth [read:  LIE] that only a priest or minister can effectively understand and teach the Bible.  Don't  you just love being lied to by someone you have 'trusted' for many years-- according to you 'church traditions.'  And I am NOT in the business of slamming other people's beliefs or Faith.  But the Bible is our ONLY real source of Truth and Divine enlightenment, friends.  Read it and weep.

I will be off-line for a couple of days, with my dear, beautiful wife, Terri, having her Right foot surgery very soon, and I doubt that she will be in a good mood.  But I will do my level best to take care of my wife -- and I love her to pieces!   I have tried to 'ram rod' force feed her all that I can about survival, finances, how to fire pistols, etc., in case something happens to me, and she is well provided for now with my Chrysler Health Insurance, and CHAMPVA, which I will try to explain latter [about helping pay medical bills - if the spouse --like Tom Schuckman-- is a combat Veteran, and with a disability....  Confidential, please. 

I think I ought to call some of you guys on the phone today and touch base, perhaps straighten a few facts/ things out to promote good understanding and total friendship, no matter what comes down the pike.  But isn't it a great feeling that we will all be Saved and protected no matter what country is left standing.   It's what God wants and commands ---  not our own human idea of what we would LIKE to occur and happen.  This should be basic 101 ABC's FOR ALL OF US..... no offense intended.

Cordially,
Tommy S

I wear many hats, have many skills, talents, hobbies, and trades, but being a serious student of the Bible trumps them all.  The rest [according to the apostle Paul] are just a dung heap.  See:  Philippians 3:8 for total proof of what I say... or just read the whole book !

"Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:  for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ."  ~Philippians 3:8
    Hey-- there you be -- that wasn't so hard to go that extra mile and type out the scripture I was referring to...

Take care, dear Friends.

So... how many of you folks like it when I post pictures with my text in the posts???   One guy said he didn't think it proper...  Hummmm

By Dr. Christopher Cone Tyndale Theological Seminary In an earlier Q & A I considered whether or not there is any Biblical distinction between a pastor and an elder. I conclude that there is not. That discussion raised another important question regarding whether or not there is such a thing as a lay elder. To understand the premise of the question, we need to define what a layperson

Standing in the Way.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/ tschuckman@aol.com


Folks,  I am excited, feel much better, am alive and kicking today -- but last night I stumbled on yet... another valuable text/ article that shook my timbers to the base, and I feel that I would be a royal ass, if I did not share it with ya'll. 

Truth be said,  I have started to believe this new mindset about 2 years ago-- and that is the reason why I backed off our inflated Nationalism/ Patriotism.... [that I before held in trust and honor, proud to bear that banner high], but never pushing my inner thoughts of this to others... yet.   With "PRIDE"  --- being one of the biggest ways to tick off our 'Father in Heaven' [as I mentioned before -- PRIDE...  yesterday.. [PS], ], this all fits together as the whole picture comes into better view, and timely, modern happenings making it more clear RIGHT NOW!    Just, please, bare me out and reason with me, my faithful, loyal friends, and company...

As I said many times before...  the gross sin of ABORTION in America, is enough for God the Father to zap us and end our culture of death, here and now!!  And that is just the start as obama has allowed 'Gays' into the Military now too!!  But then, throwing Israel under the bus, was probably the last straw that broke the camel's back, IMHO !!  Go figure: the FIRST book of the Bible, tells us about the Abrahamic Covenant, saying that God threw a special blanket of protection upon HIS favorite nation/ people, and the heathen,  obama did everything possible to insult, demean, slight,  that hallowed, yet stiff necked nation, ISRAEL,  -- and now it's time to pay the Piper! 

What this' new news' does for me is just accelerate the 'time clock' all that much more... but also tells me that 'our home country, America', must crumble, and soon, before the Rapture [that I talk about all the time can happen!].   Heaven is my home, even as I am a sinner man -- yet Saved!  Yes,  I AM SAVED !  I make many, too many mistakes every day, repent, am forgiven, and try to do better each morning that I draw breathe.  The Bible tells me so.   All the things I studied for the past 40 years are great, helpful, wonderful, enlightening -- but now [as I see it] my time has run out, Bless me O Lord, Jehovah, and my master and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Come, Holy Spirit. 

Folks, one way or another, America, I am afraid, will diminish, and collapse, any time now, and we will suffer and lost our 'Gold Star' as Number One, in the world.   And that's all she wrote.   So, friends, it's NOT a matter of prayer, or turning our sinful nation around with good works, or what ever.   Hey, we are not even mentioned in the Bible -- but Israel IS !!  THAT LITTLE NATION WILL BECOME THE SEAT, AND THRONE OF JESUS CHRIST, THE CENTER OF THE WORLD... but not before 'hell on earth' happens.  The 'Church' of true Believers will be 'caught up' -- Saved, and Raptured,  before God unleashes his 'cleansing' on earth, and woe to those 'Left Behind !'  I, personally, will do what ever is needed to 'get on that last jet out of town - earth' -- and that's a fact.  
    How many will answer my call and join me.... comments, please ?  If not, I will assume that you are too busy laying in the sun, drinking Margaritas, etc.  And I firmly believe that you-all DESERVE IT!!  But now is the time to put away all the party stuff, be sober and alert, dear friends!    The warning is out:  TAKE COVER, AND HUNKER DOWN, HOG!  Yet, for one reason or another, the Lord will catch many of us with our pants down... sorry.  We deserve a break and a 'cold one' but we must push on-- just as we did in Vietnam, lest we die...   sorry.  We don't want to  come home in a 'body bag.'

I am doing the best I know how -- to promote and share the Gospel, and my humble Blog.   If you THINK it has merit, please pass it on.   If not, please tell me why.

The Blood of Battle, in RVN.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/ tschuckman@aol.com



Hi Friends, Fellow Warriors, Soldiers and Christians!

The above video is very graphic -- but very true, concerning our American wounded over in Vietnam.  Thank you, brother Bob Gibson, an Aussie Army buddy, from the land of Oz.... who was a rifleman over there, who shared this with me today.   It's not easy to watch -- but so many Liberal jellyfish toads back in the USA need to know about the truth of war, like we 19 year olds who went over there, fighting for what ever fiction "Noble Cause" our leaders in Congress and the WH feel we ought to spill our blood and treasure.....ha!  

And now, about 40 years latter, having lived good or poor lives after that WAR, we learned new skills, trades and professions ... but we are still in Saigon [as the song goes..], and still waking up from nightmares, all sweaty, etc.... and our wives ought to get a few medals for just living with us.... LOL. 

I had to work  up courage to go to the local Iron Mountain, MI 49801 VA hospital U.P. here where I now live, by myself [as my wife was too busy to come with me], and get my Left eye attended too-- and 'lucky' that a REAL, civilian Doctor was in-house today!  He could not find anything in my eye, so he gave me some eye drops, and told me to come back quickly if I felt the need.  The good, respectful Dr. Jarrett.  But, IMHO, he is one of the few staff/ borrowed skilled practitioners who really care-- not caught up in the "System" of Gov't slack jawed, numb, lazy people who are just there for a PAYCHECK!   It's called "Tri-Care" - the Military type health insurance - Gov't style, and certainly not the best, but we'll take it because many of my noble brethren have only that for health care.  And I am sure that the VA has helped and saved MANY lives and made their lives more comfortable... don't get me wrong.  But I know as Gospel  that the VA "doctors"  botched up my knee replacement in Milwaukee 2 years ago, and I doubt there is much I can do now.  My right knee/ leg is shorter than my Left leg, and that sure do effect my walking so that it also runs the pain up my back now too.  

Every time I go to any VA system, I like to meet new-- older Veterans, who are happy to voice their own stories of what happened to them and get their personal side of the story --- and then I get a chance to witness to them about the Word.. the Bible, and Salvation.  Yes, I do take a big chance that I might otherwise 'blow' a budding new friendship [that I could use U.P. here] but don't you all think that heaven or hell --held in the balance is MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYTHING ELSE UNDER THE SUN, IN THE SHORT TIME THAT WE ALL HAVE LEFT ON EARTH ??? 
      I was having a short talk with my pretty wife, Terri, today, about the meaning of "POWER" and different methods of sharing/ preaching and teaching the Gospel of Salvation, here and now to all we come in contact with.  Yes, the Holy Spirit guilds us, puts the correct words in our mouths, and gives us strength, etc....  but we must put the knowledge in our brains to start with!!  We cannot take money out of the bank unless we first put money there [unless we live in the WH, or Congress... lol].  When a normal, common man makes such a "mistake" -- we pay thru the nose, or go to jail !  The Army teaches soldiers NOT to make mistakes because they cost real lives in battle.  We cannot afford the luxury of an "Oops." 
     
Satan the Devil is an expert of illusions, master of the Lie, deceptions, actually, "Misleading the majority of the earth !"  Few will manage to make it thru the cramped and narrow way to ever lasting life in heaven -- compared with the much larger multitude treading the wide and spacious way unto everlasting DESTRUCTION, and hell.  Sorry folks,  I am just the 'messenger' bearing the true tidings of the Bible -- Book of Matthew, and Jesus' own words or warning for us all.  I just happen to also be a History Buff, and love reading, especially the Bible, watching true prophecy unfold RIGHT NOW before my eyes in the year 2012 !!  Just like the 'Batman killings in CO -- the 'Lame Stream Media' gets locked down with NOTHING else to report world wide, when a 'small tragedy occurs' -- even though it be horrible in nature.  When the whole world will get shaken to it's base if and when Syria starts launching rockets at Israel !   That just could be the trigger needed to start the BIGGER war prophesied that could precede the Rapture we Christians are waiting for.   And yes, the "Church" is specially Blessed by God, to go to that special place in heaven reserved only for us!!  It's not too complicated, but just getting there, will be so fine for this old, tired, wounded, hurting,  Soldier, Tommy Schuckman !  And I cannot remember in MY life time when the whole Summer was so hot and dry ----  except for the two years "In-Country" -- Vietnam: 1968-70.... blessed to be in helicopter aviation, instead of being a 'grunt' -Infantry-  in my humble opinion.  With all due respect, guys.

I have studied the Bible for the past 40 some years-- yet stumbled many times and skinned my knees and behind, made too many mistakes, and was surprised to learn that the Lord Father and Son, still wanted and loved me!!!  Wow!    We can bring praise, honor and glory to the Father in heaven by setting a good example, blessing His name, and spreading/ sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to most all we meet, at opportune times.   If that takes study and a little practice -- DO IT!   I may be able to help you, if you like.  Just email me:  tschuckman@aol.com

PLEASE,  pray for my nephew Joe, in Afghanistan, and my other nephew, Steve Schuckman, over in SA [Saudi Arabia] doing some civilian work over there.  Pray for my spouse, Terri, who is going in for foot surgery soon, too.  Pray for the rains to come soon to save the farmers' crops, IF IT BE YOUR WILL, OH LORD.


...But this article will surely knock your socks off !!!  It did mine.....  Wow!  So much for the "God bless America"  silly stuff that so many un-studied people here say..... and I never believed that ignorant baloney for a minute.... Ha!  Read on and find out exactily what I mean.  Tom S.

Back Home.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/ tschuckman@aol.com


Hello Friends,
I'm back... from a short trip down to S.E. - WISCONSIN, for business and pleasure, and a couple of fine dinning with some close friends.  Sorry, that I simply didn't have time to see and visit with the rest of my old buddies near Union Grove area.  Terri and I got a lot of hard cleaning done at my old house, and carted off many things that we could use U.P. here in Iron Mtn., MI.
   If there is one thing I have learned lately -- it's the high spike in gasoline and food prices, and it don't take long before the 'speculators' to figure out that soon there ought to me a super 'SPIKE' in many items on the market/ commodities, and the time to stock up is NOT when the prices have already gone thru the roof!!  Duh...  It's before everything already cost too much to buy!  My wife said that she never did buy the more pricey cuts of beef before she met me.   I told her that I can already see that we might be eating more hamburger, chicken and pork, from here on soon.  I cannot continue to charge food that I like, only to go deeper into debt.  I will probably be drinking more water soon, too, and that will cause me to lose weight. 

I hope that folks can learn and see that the horrible Midnight movie killings in Denver, are just another time for the Liberals to try to push thru some zany gun laws to defraud U.S. of our 2nd Amendment Rights-- but I am still wondering how a guy could just order the guns, etc., over the InterNet?!

The following article that I posted below, should correct poor, faulty thinking amidst this horrible act of stupidity, and immoral behavior--- but remember that, Genus is the other side of extreme wickedness or insanity, IMHO.  And after all, God made life very hard and miserable for Adam and Eve, after they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden..... and why?   Go figure that a PERFECT human mind could conceive even more diabolical horrors before they died, even at some 930 years old at time of death.  Check out, Genesis chapter 3 and before.  Now that Terri is at home every day before her foot surgery in a week from now -- I get to study with her almost every day!!  And I try to make it fun and interesting so these things will 'stick into her mind.' 

We are now praying for God to send more rain to the dryer parts of the USA.  We got a few inches of rain here in WI, but I don't know if it will save some of our corn crops... and 1000 dairy calves are already dead from the recent heat wave.  Of course, ya'll know that the dry Summer now-- promises to send the price of food high in the following months, and just think about the lower amounts of bees to make the flowers, crops, and fruit get pollinated and grow too.  Hey,  one way or another, God will have His prophecies unfold and come true -- because He IS God. 

I hope and pray that most of us will be generous in giving to the local Christian congregation to support our food pantries, etc., as times grow more lean, unto the last day that we breath on earth-- before the Rapture... when Christ calls us home to heaven.

Cordially,
Tom

By Dr. Albert Mohler AlbertMohler.com The news hit the airwaves like a sudden onslaught, and the truth began to sink in. It has happened again. This time, 50 people shot while attending the midnight premier of the last in the Batman sequence, “The Dark Knight Rises.” According to press reports, a 24-year-old man burst into the crowded theater, wearing a gas mask and carrying an arsenal.
