Sharia Law.

Tom's Journal.

Isn't it so cute to be an air head and protect everything under the sun??  I thought I tried to raise my three kids the right way, even as I was also trapped in a false religion that studied the  bible all the time, and kept us so busy with their meetings at the "Kingdom Hall."  What a supreme waste of my time, the prime of my life, when I could have done BIG things, and been serving Jesus for those 22 years ! ! !   Now that I have a disabled, broken body, I am limited as to what I can do....   except share the Gospel with almost everyone I meet,  support the local CHRISTIAN Church, and some other Christian ministries, etc., and try to set a good example to others.   I could just whine and cry,  but the Lord wants me to do the best that I can.  The same is true with YOU good people who read my humble, and perhaps, sometimes boring Journal.   I guess that I repeat myself too often....   sorry.  Any suggestions??  
      I just got 2 GIANT PRINT KJV Bibles in the mail today, and well worth the money... as my old, tired eyes can see much better now.   I get lots of stuff in the mail, because we live in a small, one horse town of  5K, and don't have all the fancy stores like the big cities.   Green Bay, WI., is about a 2 hour drive South of us, in Iron Mtn., MI., but it's CLEAN, ORDERLY, kind, cordial, and my insurance is low, because the locality is safe, secure, with very little violence !!   The people U.P. here are  mostly Conservative/ Christians who are respectful and courteous, but 98% deer hunters and sportsmen, so we don't worry about any "civil unrest" or race riots... lol.    In a small way, it's like the Old Wild West, as you don't know who is packing heat, so you have great manners and decorum.   You are nice to people, and they are nice to YOU !!   As an old, disabled combat Veteran, folks always help me with doors, and common courtesy, always helping me out, even at the local stores.   PTL, that I am blessed enough to have my own power scooter to whisk around the stores, and my older Dodge Ram 4 by 4, and a great, pretty, blonde wife, who works hard to help me all the time !!   I love you, Terri !   I love to spoil her, because she is worth a million $$$ in GOLD, to me.   PTL.  
    If we just weep and cry all the time, and feel sorry for ourselves, who will help us and how will that ever benefit us ?   Better to STUDY about God, and His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, and DO THE BEST WE CAN... NOW !!  The time is short, and one day.....  Whoosh, up, up and away, we shall be 'caught up in the clouds with Jesus' far away from all the coming bad things that are promised to happen --- to the poor people "Left Behind."   'Do you feel lucky today,'    says Clint Eastwood ??   Tommy Schuckman, says,  "I am not going to fool around and wait until the last minute to make up MY mind, and take a positive stand -- with/ for  my Lord and Master, Jesus Christ !'    Why not "store up your treasures in heaven, where moth and rust cannot consume ?" [as Jesus said].   What are we giving and doing for the Lord RIGHT NOW ??  As for me,  I intend to do MORE !!   I get a kick out of giving and supporting, and no one needs to know what I do, except the Lord.   Precious metals and fast fading American dollars will NOT benefit me after I am gone !   I need to provide and protect my wife, yes.   I have tried to teach her as much as I know, and can.   

I hope and pray that you have a great day!

This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report'
Sharia law is the legal system derived from the Koran and other writings held as holy by Muslims. It is an oppressive, and sometimes barbaric, set of rules and practices that enforces the role of Muslim men in a male-dominated Islamic society.

It treats women, children, minorities, and non-Muslims as second-class citizens at best, and possessions, "domestic animals," or enemies at worst.

Without fail, societal observance of Sharia law ushers in general oppression that can only be described as a supernatural darkness. For a nation to accept Sharia as its governing influence means regression to a primitive view of life that does not recognize the intrinsic value of each human being as the unique creation of a Creator God.

Severed hands and feet, backs and buttocks laid bare and bloody by the lash, stonings to death, decapitations, genital mutilations, tongues carved out, noses sliced off of faces, acid thrown in faces, and the list goes on. These barbarous acts are not the stuff of fiction, they are punishments proscribed by Sharia law. And their use is practiced in too many countries in the world today.

It absolutely dumbfounds me that women's rights advocates in "enlightened" western nations tacitly approve, by their silence, the utterly barbaric attitudes of Islam and Sharia toward women and children. The same goes for LGBT activists who brazenly try to force their agenda on every person in our society -- where they are already accepted and respected -- yet clam up like rag dolls when it comes to opposing the practices of Muslims.

Some even imply they prefer Islam to Christianity. Of course, they voice those opinions while safely ensconced in a Christian society where they are loved and accepted for who they are. By the way, when a nation falls under Sharia law rule, the gays are the first to feel the wrath of its enforcers.

And in a society that strictly observes Sharia, non-Muslims, even if they receive the protection of the state, are forced to pay a tax (known as 'jizya') just for not being Muslim. Plus, they live under a strict curtailment of their rights and privileges. And if they refuse to pay up, they are either run out or executed.

No, I'm not making this up. This is real. And it is what Muslims want when they say they want an Islamic society under Sharia law. And most importantly, it's not only what they want for themselves, but for everyone else, too, Muslim or not.

This is where Egypt was headed before the military stepped in and removed the Muslim Brotherhood. This is where certain parts of Africa and the Middle East are today. And this is where a city in Syria now finds itself.

The Syrian city of Raqqa, population nearing a quarter-million, was taken into the control of a rebel faction known as "Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL). It is so brutal that even al-Qaeda has disowned it. The rebels established Sharia rule. Now, under threat of death, Christians in Raqqa have to pay a tax of $1,000 per person. Poor Christians are required to pay only $250. They cannot pray in public, build new churches, or carry weapons (and they're on the frontlines of a civil war). The Christians cannot even ring church bells. And they must report any hint of threat to the Muslim powers in charge.

ISIL says that if Christians refuse to abide by these rules, "Nothing will remain between them and ISIL other than the sword."

This second class status for non-Muslims is called "dhimma." The Christians in Raqqa are living in "dhimmitude."

Did you know that "dhimmitude" is coming to a nation near you? You may think that Islam is confined to the "Middle East," but 62% of all Muslims live OUTSIDE the Middle East. The last time I checked, 62% constitutes a majority. That means the majority of Muslims live in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, and North America. In fact, some analysts predict that certain European nations will be predominantly Muslim as soon as 2050.

Lebanon was once known as "the Switzerland of East," and Beirut as "the Paris of the Middle East." In 1926, it was 86% Christian. Today, Lebanon is 34% Christian, 66% Muslim. Though it is slowly starting to rebound, the last few decades have seen Lebanon and Beirut completely devastated by civil war as the Muslims have sought to cleanse it of all Christian influence.

"Multicultural" European governments are seeing the same results because they have allowed almost unimpeded immigration from Muslim nations. Now, as violent demonstrations erupt in the capitals of Europe, with Muslims demanding the implementation of Sharia, they are reeling.

Though Paris has been the most prominent city rocked by these cultural convulsions, England has seen its share. Yet, unbelievably, the British are continuing to lead the Western world down the path of Sharia-compliancy. The government has promoted Sharia-compliant financial bonds and allowed the establishment of 85 Sharia courts.

What about North America? Well, there are no official Sharia courts here, yet, but the Vancouver Sun points out that the major sources of immigrants to Canada are Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Iraq. In those countries, more than HALF of Muslims agree with the concept of "honor killing." That's a Sharia-accepted practice where the male members of a family are allowed to murder female members whom they perceive to have "disgraced" the family.

Can you imagine a Christian father murdering his daughter because she was seen holding hands with a boy? And doing it legally?

Folks, this is real. This is now. This is where denial of Jesus Christ and our Judeo-Christian values leads. This is what politically correct "multiculturalism" yields. Isaiah lamented the fate of those "who call evil, good, and good, evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness...." (Isaiah 5:20) Is there a better description of Sharia law or an Islamic state? God, through Isaiah, pronounced "woe" upon them.

The curtain is now falling on the Age of Grace. The ancient prophets of the Bible predicted horrible conflicts in the times we are approaching. Make no mistake, those conflicts are taking shape across the world as I write these words.

That's the bad news. The good news is that if you have been genuinely born again, you won't be around to see the really bad stuff happen. We'll be with Jesus Christ in our new heavenly home.

Make sure you're ready to go when He calls.

Tom's Journal.


Have not most of us heard, that the Anti-Christ is this guy and that man, etc., and he will be coming from a certain place, country, location, etc ??   Many say that he is Obama...., or the Pope, or someone from the old 'Holy Roman Empire,'      But how much is just  speculation, rather than fact?   I am and always have been, very interested and curious, and so you see my blog posts reflect that.   Here is more.  Enjoy.    I have been reading Revelation, Chapter 2, verses 12- 14, talking about the seat of Satan.   Someday we will all understand all the prophecies and figure them all out.   If I am thought of as a teacher with the Holy Spirit,  I want to know and understand as much as I possibly can.   It's easy for THIS generation to just sit back and listen to the scuttlebutt [false rumors, and baloney] flying around,  but harder to sit down and READ/ STUDY THE BIBLE ! ! !   I have had to study and memorize "dry" subjects on Finance, Insurance, Health, Investments, because that was my 'bread and butter' for a while, when I got laid off from a good job at AMC/ Chrysler, for 6 long, scary years, of wondering if they would ever call me back.   I didn't just sit down and cry in my beer, and ask, "Why ME, Lord ??"   I changed my MOS, job title many times in order to pay the bills, but my family/ kids never understood all the mental anguish I went through, nor my wife, at the time.  Sorry, but it isn't far from my mind, when I had to fight just to survive, even when most of my family and "friends" deserted me !!   I truly know what the term, "Homeless" means!   And it took all of my combat skills to survive in the Milwaukee Winter of '94- '95,  but God was the only one there for me, and that is how I surrendered my heart and soul to Him.   PTL.   A person truly has to learn to be HUMBLE, the first step to Salvation, and serving God, and accepting Jesus Christ.   Because The Lord will NOT use you nor accept you unless you allow the Holy Spirit to clean up your mind and heart, and start LEARNING by studying His Special BOOK, the Bible.   Most of the world [or mankind] will never take that first step.   God would rather that ALL men accept His conditions, but the Scriptures say that the majority of the world will go to hell.  
       Jesus said, at Matthew 10: 37... "He that    loveth  father or mother more than me is not worthy of me;  and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.  38.  And he that taketh not  his cross and followeth after me, is not worthy of me...  etc."   And like I always ask/ request of you all,  just read the whole chapter, or book, to get the whole picture.  Don't take my word for it,  I might be lying... LOL !   I will tell you one thing...  if it meant my entire life in eternity, I would want to know what the right thing to do, and what requirements God sets for us to gain heavenly peace and glory, because some of us have already been through hell.   I personally believe that is why former Combat Veterans find it easy to follow Jesus as their new Captain... in God's Army!   They know that THIS Commander is honest, true, and loves His troops!! 
      We had some extremely arrogant officers over in Vietnam: 68-70, and I just happened to be stuck in Aviation school, and then Helicopters in 'Nam.  Some of our Warrant Officers were great, down to earth, smart, gentlemen, but still very professional, and GREAT, skilled pilots, with 'true grit.'  I won't name name's here but some commissioned officers could not fly nor navigate, and were just plain mean, and selfish, too.  It was SOP [standard operating procedure] for us crew chiefs and door gunners to help and assist the two pilots when getting out of their  restraining harnesses, and slide back the bullet proof side shields so they could get out of the ship after landing.  If a ship [helicopter] got shot down, and didn't auto- rotate, it would 'drop like a rock' and the JP-4, or JP-5 would catch fire and explode, burning everyone who was to slow to get away.   So, some of us, I am sure, who were abused by some jerk officer- pilot, might just grab his M-60 machine gun and ammo., and run like heck to escape the flames... and I guess the pilots fate depended on his relationship with his crew, to live, or to burn.   Most of the guys were nice, kind, but we all had to be ready to obey orders INSTANTLY, if not sooner !!  It meant our loves.   I see my relationship with the Lord, very much the same way.  I am not about to fool around when the times are so near to the Rapture, and other Bible prophecy coming true, as we speak. 

I can't wait to get my 2 new KJV GIANT PRINT Bibles in the mail pretty soon, to give my tired eyes a break.   Old age can be a Bear !!

Terri is off to Green Bay, WI., again, to pick up/ help a man home who just had a heart attack, in a young age,  thus helping an older lady at church who is that man's mother.  Sometimes, I am blessed with a wife, dear Terri, who is a Saint !   I am sure that the Lord brought us together.  PTL. 
    I had to see the VA dietitian yesterday, and found out that I am eating too much... and only supposed to eat about 2000 calories per day !!!   No more soda pop.    You can start calling me "Popeye" for all the spinach I will be eating from now on.  [smile].  And the VA gave me a large size scale, etc.   I am taking advantage of all the freebee's I can get NOW,  because Obama might take them all away in the near future, so he and Congress can help the illegal aliens live better...  LOL !

The Daily Jot

Daily reporting and analysis of current events from a biblical and prophetic persp

NOTE: When writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them. 

"In God We Trust"
Our Creator and Redeemer . . . And do we THINK about it???

God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.
For example: the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;-those of the canary in 14 days;-those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;  The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;-those of the mallard in 35 days.  The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.  (Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)
God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant.  The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily.
The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.  A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first. 
How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!  God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains. 
Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.  Each orange has an even number of segments.  Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.  Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains. Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.  -

The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather. 
All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold all even numbers. 
God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. 
Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed! 
The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. 
Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end.I HOPE YOU FIND THIS AS FASCINATING AS I DID.
May God Bless You In Ways You Never Even Dreamed.I didn't think twice about forwarding this one
The Bible; When you carry "the Bible", Satan has a headache, when you open it, he collapses, when he sees you reading it, he loses his strength, AND when you stand on the Word of God, Satan can't hurt you!  And did you also know.. When you are about to forward this email to others, the devil will probably try to discourage you, but do it anyway. "Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil - it has no point.  Life is drawing without an eraser..................
GOD grant me the serenity to accept people I cannot change; the courage to change the ones I can and the wisdom to know it's me.

Prophesy, the antichrist, and the nations

It seems The Daily Jot about Russia's prophetic significance got people to thinking, which is a good thing. And when people think, they begin to ask questions. I might say that questions about prophecy are best answered with Bible study--not by studying what people teach or say about the Bible. You put a lot of effort into reading what people say about prophecy in the Bible, you may as well put that effort into finding out for yourself what the Bible says. Once you get started, you will not want to stop. There will be so many things you will find that have been taught as fact, but they are not what is in the Holy Scriptures. Remember, CONTEXT, CONTEXT, CONTEXT, and a few other little secrets are key.
There are primarily three methods of interpreting the names, peoples, and nations mentioned by the prophets in describing the coming empire of the antichrist. They are: The Ancestral-Migration Method--This method of tracking down and identifying the actual bloodlines of these ancient people is difficult. Many of these people have migrated, intermarried, or just disappeared. Because thousands of years have passed since the prophecies were made, tracking down most of the civilizations mentioned is almost impossible. However, some ancestral connections are fairly well established. The descendants of Ishmael, for example, are still identifiable as the Arab people in the Middle East.
The second is The Hyper Allegorical Method--Many conservative scholars over-compensate for the problem of the ancestral migration method by stating that those names and peoples mentioned by the prophets are simply references to general enemies of God's people. This approach makes allegorical the multitude of references throughout the prophets of names such as Moab, Edom, Assyria, or Lebanon to simply mean either every last nation on the entire earth or any end-time enemy of God's people. This approach overlooks the literal plain sense meaning of scripture. This hyper allegorical method is the most common among conservative commentators.
The third method is The Prophetic Literal Approach--This method identifies the location of the land or people at the time the prophesy was made, then looks at who inhabits the land today. This helps to avoid arbitrarily pointing to nations that have no real connection to the people or regions named by the prophets. Next is to emphasize the persistent violent enmity toward the people in the land of Israel. This is the most repeated basis for judgment of the enemies of God's people in the prophesies of the Day of the Lord which point primarily to the Middle East and Northern African nations.
The Prophetic Literal Approach, to me, is the most reasonable approach and that is the one I choose to follow. That's why I believe it is a reach for America to be mentioned in the prophecies--you just cannot find it anywhere. No doubt, I agree that America shapes the playing out of the prophecies (just as Russia is), but neither are mentioned players on the field.  
As to the antichrist, a lot has been written about who he is and where he comes from. But the prophets are consistent. The "antichrist" is alluded to as the Assyrian in Isaiah 10:5,10:24,14:25, 19:23, 30:31, 31:8, Micah 5:5-6, and Hosea 11:5. Ezekiel 38:17 refers to him as "he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel." It is quite possible that the antichrist/the Assyrian will arise from what is now Turkey. Jesus Christ identifies modern Turkey as the seat of Satan. In Revelation 2:12-13, Jesus says, "And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write: These things says he which has the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where you dwell, even where Satan's seat is..." 
Remember as you study and discern, don't just pick out verses and build your own context around them as have many modern Bible teachers. Keep the verses in context. You will also find that the prophets are extremely consistent in what is written, especially about the end times. They are viewing The Day of the Lord event from several perspectives, but all are consistent. Why? Because it is God's word, not man's.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Attention All Military Vets!

Unknown-2It doesn't matter to me if you are a veteran or not.  Please read and forward this to all your e-mail buddies.  It needs to go viral. If you are not interested in this message, simply delete it, If you are not a veteran send this to those that you know who are, or to those who may know veterans.

The 2014 United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014.
During this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested in this election. Get out and VOTE!!!!
A movement has been started by our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014. They are organizing themselves, but this can be done by all of us.
The President, the Commander in Chief, has made the Rules of Engagement (ROE) so difficult, that our troops are often killed before they can even get permission to fight. Nothing has been done to stop our troops from being murdered by the Afghanis they are training, either. Now, the President wants the US to sign on to the UNs International Criminal Court (ICC), which would allow the UN's ICC to arrest and try US troops for War Crimes, without the legal protections guaranteed under US Law, and from which there is no appeal. The President, with his Democratic control of the Senate, has nearly all the power. If the Non-Establishment Republicans, and Conservatives, can take back the Senate in 2014, our troops can once again be protected from unnecessary danger. Please consider this, and send it on to your mailing lists.
Interestingly enough, when GWB was president you heard about the military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan almost daily. With Obama in the White House, the mainstream media has been strangely quiet. ---
More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before. Thirty have died in August. During the last month, over 50 additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a force for good in Afghanistan.
The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-staff for the Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president.
It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war. Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform. But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president.
Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond.
The one million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.
Veterans: Please forward to your lists.  High Priority!
