We Were Warned.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
Below is another juicy serving of the real nitty gritty---  Reality of the Now.   I am happy to share such things with you all, and figure if it strengthens me,  it may also help you.   My wife went with a bunch of ladies from church to a ladies camp out/ spiritual, Bible seminar for the week end, and back again tomorrow.   I am sure t hat she will have much to share with me.   Men in our area having a similar fishing excursion later in the Summer.    I know that I will be doing some fishing this Spring, but my disabilities dictate how much I can do, and travel.  
     It looks like I will have to 'recharge' -- buy more Bible Tracts to disseminate to all who cross my path, and had a chance to give one out today to a nice, older gentleman who helped me navigate my way back to my truck on slippery ice, after attending a Sportsman show U.P. North, Chrystal Falls, MI.   It's amazing how I can use my "tools" of command to reach a number of able bodied men to help me lift my power scooter up a flight of steps so I could view the show, and see a lot of nice things and people !!   When I wear my "Colors" vest, people automatically 'know' who I am and give me right or way, kindness and courtesy.   But in the din of a 'Market Place' I have to constantly ask people to speak LOUDER !  smile.   They just can't seem to understand that I led a full life in noisy places, work and play.  I even tell them that I am DEAF, BUT IT STILL DOESN'T WORK !   I am happy that I could get some great deals in something that I've been looking for a long time...   but when you boil it down -- it's all a pile of trash, when we read the words of Paul.   In Philippians 3:7,  "But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.  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."   It's a very short book of 4 chapters, but packed with spiritual power and enlightenment !!   Paul also wrote in Philippians 1: 21,  "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."   I have that scripture carved into Walnut wood, and mounted on the back of my power scooter, which is a natural, instant Witness to all others around me, and have had many nice compliments on it at stores, etc.   THINK!  It's just another way to WITNESS about our Faith in Jesus Christ, and our reasonable HOPE for the Future !!   I am no better, or worse than anyone who reads my humble Blog:  TOM'S JOURNAL,  but I know how to share my Faith with others, after many years of testing different things, ways,  for the past 65 years.   Hey!  We older  folks feel a closeness to eternity, having seen so much living... and death, and seeing the Bible come true for a long time.  

Oh, how the times and seasons are growing so cold and violent in the year 2014, with no leadership or positive direction in sight !!   And I also feel sorry for all the dumbed down, ignorant, 'Bible-starved' people out in the world, or chasing some illusion or lie of the devil !!   People first have to admit that they cannot fix things on their own-- but trust in the divine power of Father God, and the KJV Bible !   In most cases, that is the opposite of what they've been taught all their lives --- just a load of baloney!  But we believe that Father God has a "Number" of Gentiles that he wants and will Save, before He unleashes the 'dogs of hell' and a whirlwind of storms, finally.  We are in that short period of time right now!  

The sad point is:  Even many so-called 'Christians' are being misled at this critical time, and it will get worse !   The only discernible life line, is the KJV Bible !!  All else is just trash, and as the apostle Paul says,  DUNG !   So...  just what on earth could be more important than sharing in the preaching work, and gaining someone that God loves enough to Save them, and now ??    Join in the Victory.   Just email and ask me how.  Or check out the fine article below.  Smile!

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman

Abuse of Power: We Were Warned

My frequent radio guest and Understanding the Times conference speaker, Gary Kah, joined me on air this past weekend. He has been warning the world of the coming global government system for almost 25 years. His position in the Indiana state government gave him his first glimpse of this effort. His study and private travels since then have helped him speak and write in a manner that confirm his warnings to millions.

He raised the following excellent points on the current Understanding the Times Radio program found here or here.

*  ObamaCare is not about healthcare, it is about control of the population. Getting medicine socialized is the greatest goal of the globalists as it will quickly turn any free nation into a socialist failed state such as are many European nations. 

*  Hear sound bytes of the planned efforts to enter your home and quiz you about some of your practices that the government will deem unacceptable through this ObamaCare effort.

*  The predicted "lawlessness" the Bible speaks of has begun but is being led not by out-of-control citizens as much as by the highest leaders in our land. The White House and their cronies are changing laws at a whim, skirting an ineffective Congress.

* Our nation is being transformed, alright. We were warned that this would someday take place not just by the likes of Gary Kah but by the Bible. The book of Revelation, particularly chapters 13 and 17, outline the one-world aspirations of many global leaders.

*  The FCC plan to monitor news rooms and clamp down on conservatives and Christians is only on hold. It has been delayed but will resurface as will the "Fairness Doctrine" before Obama leaves office, or in a forthcoming far-Left administration.

The traditional credit card is on its way out. It is not Internet rumor that traditional plastic will be replaced by Fall 2015 with cards containing a chip in them. Microchip technology is already here. The hacking debacle with Target, Neiman Marcus, and other retail outlets has made this necessary. This is just one step away from being put on or in our body and thus just one step away from "the Mark of the Beast" technology. We have been warned.

Through chaos, Satan is conditioning the world for a one-world system. After WWI, the League of Nations looked good. After WWII, the United Nations looked good. After some impending global crisis, a global government will look good. We have been warned. 

Gary Kah
Many Christians are leaving government agencies that are spying on not just Americans, but on people and leaders around the world. Some are leaving FEMA. Others are staying and taking a stand against in incursions into privacy and the obvious threat to freedom they represent. Some want to stand in the gap; others cannot violate their conscience as they see government abuse of her citizens. Others remain to fight the implementation of Socialism and even Marxism on America. We were warned.

* Military leaders are being fired right and left because the current crop of leaders want only leaders who tow their line of despotism and will go along with abuse of power.

*  U.N Agenda 21 plays into this. Learn how.

We may be just one global crisis away from global government. Will it begin in the Mideast with a war between Israel and Iran? We cannot say for sure! Perhaps it will be weather-related or natural disaster-related. The Obama-Kerry disaster locomotive heading for a train wreck has allowed Iran to continue on with her nuke program which could spell disaster for the Mideast region and the world.

* How is Pope Francis contributing to efforts particularly for a global religion? He recently reached out to Kenneth Copeland Ministries asking that there be unity among Catholics and Pentecostals.

* How does Pope Francis' theology more represent Hinduism than Catholicism?

* Why does Kah believe Jerusalem will become the interfaith capital of the world?

Many have tried to warn us over the years. The distractions of life cause us to dismiss this and continue on with enjoying life in a type of denial that is deadly. But having said that, when things are outlined in the Bible, they must come to pass. Since we have read the end of the book (Revelation), we know who wins.

Thus look up and know your redemption draws nigh!
