In my Father's House...

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/


Hi Friends!
Glad to be back from the huge Jaws of Death !  There is nothing that I can think of like being transfused [with antibiotics ---Pipermyacin, and Vancomyacin],  day and night for 22 days, and half the Nursing staff and CNA's getting a close look at your Gluteus Maximus on a daily basis....   sorry.   Most of the staff is nice and kind,  but there is always one jerk in the bunch, weather it be a "doctor" or Nurse, that wants to rain on your parade, also take away some important Medications that THEY don't THINK you need !!  In fact, I have heard more than a few people, including valiant, honorable combat Vets speak disparagingly about "doctors" and the Day of Judgment !    With all the other common stresses laying on your heart --- You surely don't need an egotistical, arrogant 'doctor' forcing you to do something that just sounds WRONG.   I was somewhat blessed to have a special, Christian RN helping me to do my own research on different so-called "medicines" to see what kind of possible side effects there were, BEFORE they tried to inject it into my veins.   In fact, I am still worried right NOW that I might be having some serious SIDE EFFECTS.  Also knowing a close friend who was issued the WRONG kind of medication that DID injure his kidneys !!!  

Well, I know this is not what many people want to here now days.... truth be told, or not.   But I make my own email address known to the public, and friends, to answer any questions and help if I can.   I don't feel very long for THIS world, also praying that I can do what ever I can to share the Gospel BEFORE the Rapture... PTL.   One smart thing I did do, was to keep a daily 'Ship's Log'/ Journal of everything that went down while I was in the VAMC [Veterans Administration Medical Center]  Hospital, and also the Pinecrest Nursing Facility, in Powers, MI., which is in the U.P.  where we live.   Sorry to say, that my faith and trust in hospitals and doctors has not be forthcoming one bit.   I certainly suggest a spouse or significant other to act as your "Patient Advocate"  as much as possible !!  Don't swallow anything people tell you unless you have personally checked it out.  The so-called doctors are not little golden gods walking the halls of some institution.... but rather mere, mortal men, who make mistakes every day of their lives...  even though you may not see or understand right away.    Sorry to burst your bubble, guys and gals.  

I repeat:   Death is but a simple "DOOR WAY" leading to everlasting Life... one place, or another, and the Bible tells us the plain truth about such subjects.  Ask me any questions.  If I don't know them,  I kn0w where to find them.  
     And it's not so surprising to find, hear, see older people in Nursing Homes, who don't care if they die.  In fact they WELCOME DEATH !  I can tell you the unvarnished truth of the matter, that when a person gets older, depending on what his life style and Beliefs are/ have been, it's not a big event if they die.   Because they have lived a full, hard, exciting, fulfilling life, and being in their 80's or 90's,  they have many major PAINS from dawn to dusk.   They hurt!  They are suffering!  And if they are Bible smart, well read, Christians,  they KNOW THAT THEY WILL BE IN A FAR, FAR, BETTER WORLD.. WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST !!    Actually, I, we,  pity those who don't have such hope, Faith and Trust as we do !  And so, I witnessed, shared the Gospel, and had my KJV Bible out on display [as I had lots of time to read and study... memorize the Scriptures and meditate on them in my private room, with NO Air Conditioning, and NO shower, at Pinecrest Nursing Home, in Powers, MI.  
     I was VERY, VERY GLAD TO GET THE HECK OUT OF THAT PLACE !!   I just might make one more trip out there to fulfill a promise to a Vet buddy, named Leon, to give him a new DEFINED KJV Bible, like I promised.   I night also write him a letter, or two, also.   I prayed long and hard while there for God to lead me to someone with whom I could have an intelligent conversation to help my supreme boredom.    Again,  Please visit your loved one more often if they are in such a circumstance.   The "open mouth, starring into space is somewhat contagious, as I felt my self having a hard time smiling while there.   And the food was a little bit lower than what we young soldiers had to eat while in Vietnam, or the old, nasty left over "C-Rations" we had, left over from the Korean War !!  Give me a break!!   I've seen stray dogs puke over such "food !"   I did only lose about 35 pounds, mainly  because I always drank plenty of ice water to hydrate my kidneys, etc.   But I always had a dry mouth while there.   I don't eat much anymore after I did a "controlled Fast" and shrunk my stomach a little bit.    I will soon join the old Health Club, and you WILL hear about that.

Please pray for my Pastor, Kevin Sullivan, who is worried about his elderly parents near Virginia, etc., etc.   He works himself ragged taking care of others, and now he needs lots of daily prayers too.   Please also pray for my good friend, and fellow Veteran, George, the Aviator, who is still mending and healing from a fall, with hurtful knees, etc.  Thank you all, very much!

Here is one of my new favorite Scriptures that I am trying hard to memorize:   "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."   --- John 14: 27.

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman

A Mansion Or A New Body?

Q.  In John 14:2 Jesus said he goes to prepare a place for us.  I’ve heard that the “place” prepared may not be a mansion or room but that it may be the new body Jesus prepared.  My question is:  why do we need a place (room; mansion)?  When we get there, there will be no private entertainment such as television, we probably will not have a need to be alone so we won’t need a room for solitude, we won’t need the privacy of using a bathroom because the body will probably consume all of what we eat, and we probably won’t need sleep due to the nature of our glorified bodies. A lot of things we do on earth will not be needed in the New Jerusalem.

A.  I’ve been asked this question a number of times and it always mystifies me because to me a plain sense reading of John 14:2-3 leaves no doubt as to what the Lord was saying.  I understand your question, but what does need have to do with anything?  We are children of the King of the universe, co-regents with His Son. Do a king’s children only have their basic needs met? (Is your earthly home only sufficient for your basic needs?)
On top of that we’ll be living in a place that’s 2/3rds the size of the moon, with streets made of purest gold and decorated with every kid of precious stones (Rev. 21:15-21).
Also you’re making several assumptions about what our next life will be like when the truth is no one knows what we’ll be doing or how we’ll be doing it.
In John 14:2 the Greek word translated “mansions” in the KJV and “rooms” in the NIV literally means a dwelling or abode.  The word translated “place” is an inhabited place. Neither of these words is ever translated “body” even when they are used metaphorically which in this case there is no reason to do.  One of the golden rules of Biblical interpretation tells us;
“When the plain sense of scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense; therefore, take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in the light of related passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths indicate clearly otherwise.”
In short, I believe John 14:2-3 means just what it says.

Red Heifer. Follow Up

Q.  Is the red heifer’s ashes required to also cleanse the workers who will build the Temple? Meaning, will we have to wait the 2 1/2 years for not only worship services to begin but the actual construction of the Temple to begin as well? If so, that means we must wait another 2 1/2 years for the heifer to reach adulthood, plus the time it will take to build the Temple (appx 1 year?), plus another 3 1/2 years for the anti Christ to defile it, plus another 3 1/2 years for the Lord’s return. That means if this is indeed the pure red heifer that will be used, and if the construction workers must wait 2 1/2 years to be purified by it before beginning construction, that puts the Lord’s second coming at least 10 1/2 years away.  Correct?

A.  In Biblical times people who were unclean could not participate in communal activities, of which visiting the Temple was one.  Also, some Jews will not go on the Temple mount today for fear of accidentally defiling the Holy Place.  Therefore I believe the workers on the new Temple will need to be ceremonially clean.
Finding the ashes of previous red heifers would certainly shorten the timeline you’ve estimated.  As I understand things, they will need to be found to purify the people involved in preparing the current sacrifice. There are three possibilities that Temple Institute officials have suggested.  They could be found as the result of a more intensified search.  Or the location could be revealed to someone supernaturally.  Or the Messiah could identify the location when He arrives.
It has occurred to me that one of the ways the anti-Christ could win over the Jewish officials is to reveal the location of the ashes himself. He is the one who will make the Temple possible and he will also appear to perform miracles. Certainly Satan knows where the ashes are and could tell him.  Also, the temple construction period could overlap with the first half of Daniel’s 70th Week. Therefore it may not take as much time as we think.
But none of this will influence the timing of the rapture, which could literally happen any day now.

"I am a Disabled Vet."

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/


From a close friend in Louisiana,  George, the Aviator, a  Chopper Pilot, and fellow Vietnam Veteran:

I have watched that movie a dozen times on DVD. We are currently under the
same level of danger TODAY with what our PISS POOR Government is allowing to
flood into our country!!

Mary, this blog needs to go viral! I have seen first hand what is crossing
our border!!!! Children so sick, others had to carry them into our Country,
known cases of TB, known cases of multiple strains of "Fever" induced

This is a MAJOR danger to each and every one of us!!!!

I strongly encourage any able bodied and willing Patriot to report to our
Border, Armed and willing to seal off the border that our own damned
worthless Government Won't seal!!!!

Our very lives depend on it now,  I shit you not!

Subject: This should thrill ya to death!


Today's  short note.

How can I compete with the likes of the message below?  Ha!  It's so true, but few will take notice!   My good wife just made me some steak and eggs for breakfast, and that was a nice gesture....   but I can't hardly wait for the VA Dentist to fit me with some new replacement teeth/ partials.   I am also worried about my kidneys going kaput, after 3 long weeks of intensive IV antibiotics, for my leg wound, via Picc-Line, that was just removed yesterday, by a very nice, professional RN, named Robin, in Iron Mountain, MI-- VAMC.   But Yes,  I will raise Cain if they messed with my kidneys, and yes, I am worried.  The doctor's nurse says NOT to worry, but to drink lots of water.   OK,  I am part camel, anyway, and love pure, cold water!  

Well,  I am quite sure that NO BODY wants to hear an old man complain, but I just wanted to make a point, for all the other combat Veterans there are out there, who fought for....   God knows what, weather it was Vietnam, or Iraq, and we gave all that back to the so-called "winning side"... Communists or what ever.   However,  I will NEVER abandon my old friends--  Army and Marine brothers in Arms !!   The Gov's might have LIED to US, and still does, but we love the Corps, that Grand Body of Men that we fought with, trained with, living and dead !   For what it's worth...  The protected will never taste the true flavor of Freedom that WE Soldiers fought for, no matter what age or what War we survived, to tell the true stories.   Well,  that didn't come out quite the way I wanted,  but I am sure you all get the picture.   I am sure that the VA helped many people, who otherwise could not afford it, but please don't tell ME how great and glorious they are [the VA], a writer and blogger, and Disabled Vet, have heard from so many other screwed Vets shared and spilled their guts to me, these past 40 years, after the fact ! ! !

Some day [and that day cannot come soon enough, IMHO] the VA and the Gov't will have to 'pay the piper' and answer for all their "mistakes" and other sins.   THEIR Main job now is:  to try and keep as much INFO under the radar, and the lid on things, like 'cooked books' secrets, etc.  What we really need IS:  a special out side the box Inspector and Attorney !!  If that entity is appointed by Obama --- he won't go far enough.  Period.    I just hope you guys are starting to see the "Trend" by now, and how the machine works, stalls, covers things up, hides those facts, takes the money under the table.   In the mean time, more Veterans will die, long before their time, so the Gov't will "Save the Money" and give it to more deserving Illegal Aliens !

Vote those old Turkeys OUT !!   Support your local Legions and VFW's, and individual Veterans, with everything that you have !

Thanks,  Guys!

'I'm a disabled Vietnam Vet. I
don't look too bad for a beat-up old fart, do I? And
that's my ride. She's looking pretty good also,
especially when you consider that she'll turn twenty
this summer. That's right, it's a 1990 with a 1990
sidecar. I can't ride a solo bike, ergo the sidecar
rig.  It's my sole means of transportation - rain or
shine, snow or wind, and this summer also marks a
milestone in both of our lives, as I will finally be
able to pay her off. Twenty years old? What? Why did
it take so long? You weren't paying attention, were
you? It's right at the beginning of this

I am a disabled vet, which means I receive a
veterans administration disability pension, which
also means "I'm broke!" Just one step ahead of being
homeless every month, and  that's not an idle
statement or an "Oh, woe is me" dire complaint.
There’s a point to this, so hang in there a minute
or two and read on.

There's a 25-year-old
illegal immigrant woman living in Florida, with
eight kids.  Yes, eight "anchor babies" and she
receives just shy of $1,500 per month per kid,
plus medical, plus food stamps. 

Oh, wait. I've been informed that
I shouldn't call them Food Stamps anymore. That's
not PC. It's all called “Social Assistance” now. You
do the math on that yourself. I'd say that she was
schooled early in how to make it in the system.
Twenty-five years old, eight kids......yep, she
started early.

You can whip out the calculator if
you want, but this woman, who never has paid a
dime in taxes of any kind, (and still doesn't –
she's 'illegal,' remember?) is here in this country
illegally.  She hasn’t paid out one cent in
medical for all the “anchor babies,” makes more in
one month, legally, than I receive in over a year
and a half in disability payments and I can't even
get food stamps!  Oops, I mean “Social

Technically I am eligible for
“Social Assistance.”  I was told it would be a walk
through – a gimme – being disabled. No problem, and
in the very next breath I was also informed
that under the law the amount I received in
“Social  Assistance” would be deducted from my
disability pension.

Let's say I take a great photograph. It was just
luck, a one of a kind accident, in the right place
at the right time shot. My local newspaper offers me
fifty bucks to use the photo in a featured story. (I
live in a small town and fifty bucks is all they
could afford.) I have to report that fifty
dollars to the VA as earned income, which will
immediately be deducted from my next month’s
disability check. If I don't report it I’m in
violation of federal law and technically they can
stop my disability pension and prosecute me under
a federal felony. Pretty cool, eh? For fifty bucks.

I see no point in dealing with two
federal bureaucracies, so I don't bother. What's 
the point?

She's here illegally and with just
one kid would make over twice what I receive per
month.  She has eight and she’s not a stand-out
case.  She’s not alone.  That's the way the system
works.  Millions of illegal immigrants know this,
know how the system works and know how to use it. 
(Haven't you seen the pamphlet?  It's handed out all
along our borders, "The Illegal Immigrants' Guide to
Keeping America Just The Way It Is.") and that's
just the way it works.

Did you know that the federal
government provides a “refugee” in this country with
a monthly “stipend” of $1,890, plus $580 a month in
“Social Assistance?”  That’s $2,470 a month,
tax-free.That's two and a half times what I’m
allowed to receive as a disabled vet.  And just what did they do
to earn this?  All you have to do is show up on our
collective doorstep, raise your right hand and swear
that you're a refugee and, bingo, receive $30,000 a
year, tax-free.  That's more than someone making $15
an hour, and they have to pay taxes to boot!

The point to this
“story?”  Just why are you paying such high taxes to
support this  incredibly screwed-up government? 
Why?   And I’m not proposing you stop paying your
taxes.  That's wrong.  There are good programs and
reasons to pay your taxes and support our
What am I proposing? It's quite
simple. Vote.

The government, our government, is
broken and we as the voters serve as the maintenance
crew.  We fix it..... by voting.  If your state
Senator has been in office more than two terms, vote
'em out at the next election.  If your state
representative has been in office more than two
terms, vote 'em out of office.  We put term limits
on just about every publicly-elected official in the
country except the House and Senate.

Why? Believe me, they know this
and love it! Ahhh - the power!

I don't care how much you believe
your Senator or Representative is doing a good job.
They're not! Look at the government you have....that
we have. How can you state they are doing what you
want as the voter that put them there? How?

Vote them out of office.  Do it.

Change the course of this
country's history by what you are granted and
guaranteed under the law. Vote! And if you have the
guts, the anger, the outrage, start a petition in
your state for a state-wide initiative to be placed
on your next state ballot. Limiting the terms of
office for your state senators and state
representatives to your federal government to two

The federal government will never
pass such a law, but you can. You can get it done.
You can force it. You can make it a law.

This is the first step
in “getting it right.” Just vote. It's simple. It's
easy, dammit!
This first step will send a very clear message.
It’ll work. It’ll put “us” back in control of
“them.” As it should be. As it was intended in the
first place.

Are you an American? Born and raised? Then vote!

Side note:  I sent
this e-mail to a little over one hundred on my
e-mail list.  If you believe I’m wrong or misguided
or you simply don't agree, that's fine.  Go right
ahead and delete this e-mail.  No problem.  Sorry to
have bothered you.  But if you think I just might
have a worthwhile idea, something we can easily 
accomplish, something that could be a small part  at
getting this country back under “our” control, then
please pass this along
