When Hope and Change dies in sorrow.

Tom's Journal.

Sorry,  Folks,   I just couldn't stop myself from posting another dish of goodies from Mr. Bill Wilson well worded articles today....    Perhaps I have developed a persecution complex and a bit defensive,  but I am drawn to other Christians who agree with my own mindset and Bible knowledge.   Too,  if it appears that I am "obama-bashing" -- that man has really dug a deep hole in the ground and attacked so many GOOD THINGS, held sacred in America, and hurt so many good people--and supported ABORTION,  and homosexuality,  big time ! ! !   Just like in time of war,  when the enemy is so ferocious,  you just have to be plumb mean enough to beat him --- because the enemy wants to enslave the entire world !!  
    In my own time, one of our nation's enemies perpetrated some heinous, unholy crimes against members of my own Company of Soldiers in Vietnam, hanging them from trees and skinning them alive !!  They even put a bounty out for members of the 240th AHC Greyhounds/ Mad Dogs, in Vietnam, because we harassed and 'did a number on' their people.   I didn't know about this until about a year ago.....   And we all knew about what the Nazi's did in WW-2 to many people, trying to exterminate the Jewish population in Europe, while many countries knew about this horrible deed, yet said nothing, because they hated the Jews too.   Same old story still goes on today, with the USA winking at the 'bad guys' and even supplying them with arms and help !! 

I am sure that God is 'allowing' many bad things to happen right now...  just so no one can say that His New Heavens and New Earth are not warranted.   Really, friends,  left to our own methods and devises,  humankind will destroy itself !   Take Iran, for instance,  they will not hesitate to use their Nukes on Israel, even if it means that they will be nuked too -- because they THINK that Allah wants this to happen, and that they will be in their Paradise with 70 virgins.   I could never figure out what kind of Paradise the virgins would get, if only to pleasure the men up in their heaven, or what ever..... duh.   It doesn't seem fair and balanced to me.   Where as our Christian KJV Bible says that women Believers will be CO-heirs in heaven with men !!   And on Earth,  Believing women are to be loved and respected, with a special place of honor in the Christian community and marriage, etc.  I was raised to respect all women and protect those pregnant ladies, as the gift of LIFE was / is something very precious.  

Well,  I asked my beautiful wife,  Terri, to get some money from the bank, mail important bills/ letters, and buy some Forever Postage stamps, before picking up a few things at the grocery store an hour ago.   And then I figured that I had  enough time to post this article.   The "Daily Jot" means a lot to me, and I have come to love it.   You too can get it free in your email box, if you like.
     The weather is only about 10 degrees above today with a high of 16.   My power scooter in the back of my hooded pick up truck is useless right now, because the power switch that moves it in and out, up and down, is BROKEN, again, for the 5th time,  because the local VA loves to pick and choose the cheapest vendors in the world for it's disabled Veterans.....  sorry.   The super thin, cheap wires in the control box get cold, and snap, and there I am stranded, because I cannot get the power scooter back into my Dodge Ram, pick up truck...  the last time, right outside the VA Medical Hosp., where we live !!!   And so, if it comes from the West [Left] Coast, right now during the holidays -- we can bet it will take at least 10 days or more.... "Murphy's Law."   So,  I have to rely upon my wonderful wife, to get some things done...  but she loves to get out and SHOP, SHOP, SHOP!   And what kind of woman would she be without that inclination ??   Ha! -- Just Joking, friends !!  But Terri loves to shop even without any money, I guess.  Not to worry,  I have many weird quirks too.    I study healing herbs to help myself and others stay healthy and feel well.  And I carve Scriptures into wood with a router, and other power tools, and actually give most of them away as presents.   I know for a fact that God loves me very much, and ALL OTHER BELIEVERS !   I have taught many other folks to use the knife, gun and tomahawk....   but also purchase many KJV DEFINED Bibles  [] and GIVE them away to interested people, and spend my time with them to show them Salvation thru Grace, by the sacred blood of Christ, and the Gospel.   I LOVE TO TEACH and share !  And I believe that my "weird" habits MIGHT someday cost me my head, as the American Gov't grows worse down the road, and hates Believers of the Bible and Christ.   So shoot me...  LOL !

I am also on FaceBook, where I have hundreds of friends....  but I have got to be careful on that Big Brother web site, with the Gov't looking at us all.

Big Hugs,
Tom Schuckman

When hope and change dies in sorrow
In an interview with fellow leftist Barbara Walters on CNN, Piers Morgan commiserated that the occupant of the Oval Office has not fulfilled the "great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009." First, Morgan shows his continued ignorance because the election was 2008, not 2009. Notwithstanding, Walters' response was indicative of the ill-informed voter and how even some Christians denied their Christianity. Walters said, "He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn't say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah...and people feel very disappointed because they expected more."
Numerous stories depicted the candidate as messiah. School children sang songs. Radical leaders referred to him as the messiah. Religious leaders heaped praise upon him. Herein, a man was judged by the color of his skin rather than the content of his character--and it was those who sang the praises of Martin Luther King, Jr.--the author of the quote--who projected their true feelings upon American society. That it was about race, not about character. It was also about religion. As it turns out, it was about attempting to destroy religious freedom, vilify Christians, elevate Islam, and establish socialism in the name of a new messiah. Americans should have known better.
Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." The president is not Messiah. In fact, his way is lawlessness as he does not abide in God's laws, nor does he enforce the laws of the land--he picks and chooses what laws he obeys and enforces. His truth is not absolute. It is relative. Even the blindly supportive Washington Post said the president had three of the top ten lies of the year. The Messiah is truth, the president is not Messiah. And what of life? This president represents a death culture in his radical support of abortion; his support of Islam; and his statist economic policies that have lowered the standard of living in this nation.
The tenets of statism abolish all religion and rest hope and salvation in government. They are based on the absolute sins of covetousness and theft. Those who put their hope in men will have nothing left but sorrow in the end. We cannot long continue to be a generation that seeks salvation in man. There is none. This nation can only change for the better if our hope is in Christ. Titus 2:11-13 says, "For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ."

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
Bill Wilson

The Pre-Trib Rapture In Isaiah

Q. I don’t read the Bible often but I try to when I have some peace time. This verse really stood out to me: Isaiah 26: 19-20. Is this, in your opinion, the means by which the rapture will take place? Are these verses to be interpreted with literal meaning and common sense of they’re connotation, in that, the dead will raise and walk the earth?

A. In my opinion, Isaiah 26:19-20 is the passage to which Paul was referring when, speaking of the rapture, he said, “According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord,will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep” (1 Thes. 4:15).
Hardly any of the New Testament had been written when Paul said this, so it makes sense that he was referring to the Old Testament. And sure enough, in Isaiah 26:19-20 we have a description of the rapture/ resurrection almost identical to Paul’s in 1 Thes. 4:16-17.
But your dead will live, their bodies will rise— you who dwell in the dust, wake up and shout for joy—your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead.
Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.
First the dead in Christ will rise and then the living will go to their rooms (John 14:2-3) until the Lord’s wrath has passed by.
Then in Isaiah 26:21 we’re told that the purpose of His wrath is to punish the people of the Earth for their sins.
See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will disclose the blood shed on it; the earth will conceal its slain no longer.
This is an obvious reference to the end times judgments, and the preceding verses indicate that the Lord’s people will be hidden away in our rooms when the Lord comes to punish the people of earth their sins.
Note how He switches from the second person (you, your, yourselves) to the third person (their) in verse 21. His people are not the people of earth. Paul said, “Our citizenship is in heaven” (Phil. 3:20). For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thes. 5:9).
You should read your Bible more often. There’s lots of interesting stuff like this in there.

From Ruth in AZ:

Hello Tom and Terri, Merry Christmas time and Blessing ahead for the New Year!!

Tom I always enjoy your posts! I am sorry to learn about the scooter...they are such a help to folks and like a computer they are wonderful when they work, but the pits when they do not!! Hope the new one is stronger and gets there Soon!! Murphy of Murphy's Law has lots of cousins...related to him most of the time too!

Hey, it is an inborn gene for women to like to shop with or without money...we 'window shop' like stealth bombers too :-] We are a super 'club'!

Your carvings sound wonderful Tom!!! What great gifts tot he faithful! Knowing herbs etc. is vital in this day and age , especially when the government starts keeping meds from us etc....the more we know about natural things the better! You should write a book and get it published!!

As to your faith Tom, I appreciate it very much and find your love of the Lord refreshing and solid. What you share is not stop. Even folks that are right there with you, need to hear it over and over!! Humans are weak and need reminding constantly just like they must pray constantly!! It is super the way you share Him with others as much as you can!! As it says in the Bible we will be persecuted for our faith but so was the Lord....anything He suffered somewhere in the world so will Christians....and we are long overdue to be put in our place in America too because of our turning from Him...sadly we will see this and may well experience degrees of this ourselves. Hey, you never know, the government just may learn something from all of their spying; Learn to be patriots, people of faith in God and stand up for the Constitution again-- also seeing how stupid they are!!!!

Best regards, Ruth
