Dangerous but Doable.

Tom's Journal.

I certainly adhere to all this news and print, and I believe that all or most of the churches  I attend also believe in what the author publishes here too!  If that makes me a 'radical' or 'dangerous' individual, let the Socialist powers that be take my head.   Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior, and heaven is my home.  I have been studying these Bible truths for many years and promoting this kind of  knowledge in my humble Blog for a few years now.

Warm Regards,

Tom Schuckman

Dear friend of Israel,


That’s the conclusion of the most reliable Israeli sources regarding a preemptive strike on Iran. Our own Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta has said he expects an Israeli strike to take place sometime in the Spring or early Summer time frame. While the exact time is known only by Israel, the action is inevitable. And we can be sure that at least two of Iran’s client organizations, Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon will be in the mix as well. This could fulfill Zechariah’s prophecy (12:1-9). In any case, it would be the time Israel deals with nests of Jihadists that surround them, rejecting an imposed cease-fire until the mission is accomplished.

Meanwhile, it is reported President Obama promised Israel super-bunker-buster-bombs and planes that can make a round trip to Iran without refueling - IF Israel will delay actions until after the 2012 elections. Expect further promises as the time draws nearer. Some of these promises could well have Biblical dimensions. Israel has already indicated they will attack without consulting the U.S if they deem the threat warrants immediate action. 2012 promises to be a critical “year of decision” for Israel.


The overriding mission of The Jerusalem Connection is to inform, educate and activate support for Israel and the Jewish people. This becomes more timely and crucial every day as many in the world turn against Jews and Israel; as enemies of Israel speak of “wiping them off the map”; as forces in our own secular academia join together to degrade and delegitimize Israel; as anti-Semitism grows. This goal dictates our priorities and our actions. As Christian Zionists, we support the modern state of Israel as a partial fulfillment of God’s covenant promises to provide a homeland for the Jewish people. We say “partial fulfillment” because we believe the ultimate fulfillment will take place when Messiah returns. Jesus clearly said who he was and why he came. We know his disciples and tens of thousands of early followers received him. We believe the coming Messiah will be the same Jesus who was born in Bethlehem over two thousand years ago. Meanwhile, we seek to :

CONFIRM the present validity of God’s covenant to Israel. (Gen.17:7-8)
CHAMPION Aliyah: the re-gathering of the Jews to Israel. (Isa. 49:22)
CONFRONT Anti-Semitism. (Psalm 83:1-4, 18)
COUNTER Replacement Theology/ Supersessionism. (Rom. 9:4; 11:1-2)
CONTEND for God’s heart for Israel & the Jewish people. (Jer. 32:40-41)
COMFORT Israel and the Jews through ministries of mercy. (Isa 40:1-2)
CONNECT with the Hebraic roots of Christianity. (John 4:22)


Pat completed 12 weeks of chemo therapy, followed by a successful laparoscopy surgery February 21. She now begins the follow up chemo, which will last from 9 to 18 weeks. The doctors informed us this week that the serious pain that brought her to the emergency room saved her life. He actually said, “She would have passed by now if she had not come in when she did." He went on to say we should be very encouraged at her positive response to the chemo and surgery. While doctors don’t give prognosis, we stand on the promises of God for her full recovery (Matt. 8:17; Acts 10:38; I Peter 2;24). We praise God for the prayers of so many of you for Patty. You find out who your friends are when hard times hit. Your cards, notes, gifts and love has so moved our hearts and given us great joy and encouragement. Thank you so much. Pat asks, “Keep it up!”


Also please continue to pray with us about a permanent home for Pat’s Auschwitz Album Revisited paintings. Although we cannot plan an exhibit this summer, Pat has been asked to take the artworks to two European countries and she continues to work on new paintings as she can. We put a new painting on our website last week. There have been contacts with some of the Holocaust museums here and elsewhere – so we ask you, our partners, to join us as we turn that over to our Heavenly Father!! Meanwhile, you may get a giclee (archival p rints) of any of the paintings by going online or by writing to the office.


As you can see, we are soldiering on with what God has called us to do. We are in this end time fight together. We could not do the work if you did
not do what you can do. So pray for us and remember The Jerusalem Connection in your offerings and charitable giving.

In addition to monthly needs, TJCI needs a new(er) ministry vehicle. We have a 1997 Dodge Caravan with over 200,000 miles that has served us well, but the repair bills the last five months have made us realize the time has come. If you have a later model van in good condition that you would be willing to donate, as a 501(c)3 organization we are authorized to give you a tax exempt letter. I am willing to come and get it where ever it is. In any case, please pray with us about this need.

Go to our website to sign up for a monthly gift or a make one time online donation.

Or mail your donation to:
The Jersualem Connection, International, PO Box 20295
Washington, D.C. 20041


Be assured, for every donation that comes to us, regardless of the size, I personally pray for you. I put Yahweh’s name on you, by name, for his blessing according to Numbers 6:22-27. Also, our wonderful staff prays at the coming & going of each one. The two Marilyns (our faithful volunteers) sound the shofars each Tuesday over all the letters! We all feel like we have a family scattered over the country: praying for us, supporting the work, and caring! May His blessing be yours!

Od ki yavo Shilo (Until Messiah comes),

Another Great Sunday.

Tom's Journal.

4-1-12     ...  TOM'S JOURNAL.    April 1st,  2012.  Goal for this  week:  Join the Iron Mountain, MI  YMCA !!

That weather teaser we all had a few weeks ago really messed us up into thinking that an Early Spring had sprung, from bottom up!   Much to do, and surely thought that marriage and engagements were in the air too.    

I tried the 2nd church today and met the Pastor for a short talk -- and not to brag, but the congregation was praying for some individual who was recently unemployed and needed some resources --catch my ear, and so I reached deep into my pocket and pulled out some cash-- a 'C-Note' and tucked into the Pastor's palm along with my business card, even though I already wrote out a [Tithe] check for $40, with my phone number and email address, and info.   I think that my fiance would like to drop anchor there and become members in about 2-3 months.  After the main service, I was invited down stairs to a good supper and shook hands and got to know a few people, and that's how it's done.   That's how long time friends are made in the 'brotherhood' / Congregation/ church..  The term, "Church" is not a building, stone, concrete, wood and  roof with a piano and organ inside.   It's the 'body of people/  human beings with God's Holy Spirit, being present in each and every one up stairs and down stairs!!   --And the world wide congregations

It is a bit stressful the first time, getting to know all the different kinds of people inside the 'building'  -- the real blood and guts people, moms, dads, uncles, aunts, fathers, and pastor who guilds them on...  ounce we know each other and that real bond of trust  to hold each others' hands and pray hard, when things get tough.  Being there at one's death bed reassuring the dying, and preparing them for the next journey into heaven.   But also knowing become  that our temporary bag of bones, flesh and blood bodies that will be left behind in exchanged for everlasting forms unknown, and what a happy, godly adventure that will be, with Jesus Christ, our Savior.  

So, on with the show here on earth, spreading the real Truth of the Gospel of Salvation, and now [perhaps] finding a "home church" not too far away from us, from where I rest my weary head has the most importance in our steam/ flow of time/ life, and learn / know how God is going to 'develope things in this finale.' And how it will affect us in the frozen Tundra.    Got to again write down my responsibilities, priorities, most important things, profiles of fish studies in the Northern woods and surrounding woods.  Recording things in my Blogs/ Journals/ emails, so that can we may  measure we might realize time.

Again,  our most important J.O.B. ON EARTH IS TO MAGNIFY AND BRING GLORY TOP GOD`!  2nd job on earth is to work hard, save, invest, and bring joy and happiness to our spouses and happiness to ourselves, families.  

I want to bring safe harbour, less stress, more money into our up coming union/ marriage, less stress, more action, maybe bike and horse riding.  I might want to do a private talk with the intelligent pastor soon to get his view points on Combat PTSD, etc., hunting, fishing, for the disabled soon, while the fish are biting.   Also want to sit down and build, write down or main priorities on paper with my girl friend, and we ARE engaged now.   We need to buy Terri a few more dresses for church, and going out, and I need 2 more white dress shirts.   Join the YMCA in I. M. --MI...and get further tucked in with Medical Insurance for Terri, so that will be one more thing she has to worry about.

Did I miss anything??   Time for me to wash up, clean up, put some  groceries away, hide the cake I bought...  and relax by watching the runny 'News' that will be flying by me today.

Sorry folks, I was falling asleep at the key board again, before, and I must not be getting the right kind of quality beauty sleep up here with this new CPAP machine that helps my nose repair/ heal.  It's give -- and take...  but my nose is finally healing with out the intense pressure it had on it before. 

My friend from Kansas, Mark Eisenhower advised me to talk more  about funeral preparation, getting things down legally on paper BEFORE you die, or get killed.  I went thru pure hell when my dear wife, Sharon, passed away last April 9th, 2011, and again with my dear son, Andy, who was killed the very next month, May 10th, 2011, while I was also going thru another total knee replacement--  and catching a horrible VERSA infection at Kenosha, WI., Memorial hospital.  And that is when I fired on doctor who was so verbally abusive to me, and put another turkey "doctor" in his place too.   I will NOT be abused!!  And I try hard never to be aggressive toward any hospital staff either....  but I am not some bum, or illegal alien who just walked in off the street.  I worked very hard all my live-- Chrysler:  30.5 years, and put in 2 hard years in Vietnam too, serving my country, combat helicpter aviation....  so I insist on being treated like a normal, honorable human being.  Period.    I have already told my fiance that I want, insist on having a simple, inexpensive Christian, and Military funeral, and already have a plot of ground out side of Kenosha, WI.,  or I can be buried for free at the Union Grove Veterans' Cemetary, where my father is also buried,  as he was U.S. Navy [Seabees in WW-2, Saipan, Pacific theator.].  I will leave her with plenty to live on, just as my Dad left a lot to my Mom, after he passed away.
But the wealth of knowledge I am teaching her NOW is worth more than what I have already given her, already. 

Thank you, Mark, for all your help and advice to me one year ago, when I needed somebody to heal and teach me about funerals, etc.  I feel that I now know enough to save others mucho pesos when death knocks at their home.  Just email me.

Warm Regards, and now I must bandage my finger tips.
