The Looming War with Islam.

Tom's Journal.

I have said many times that Bible Prophecy is unbeatable and totally accurate.   I said:  "That Israel would soon give Islam a bloody nose, and set her back on her heels !"   Well, folks, here is the biblical proof !   I knew this 30 years ago, as a younger Bible student,  but we all did not know exactly how it would come about.  And now Obama [dung heap--traitor] adds a new rotten scent to the picture as he has already put things together, actually creating ISIS !!  And of course,  our godless Congress is complicit, as usual !  
   Friends, my audience is composed of many studied Christians, smart folks, who deal with pure LOGIC, AND THESE RECENT HAPPENINGS DEFY LOGIC !   We all figure and wonder how these things could be allowed to proceed and progress.   Part of it is because God allows things to happen this way so that  BIBLE PROPHECY will come true according the Word, and God cannot lie.... Titus 1:2.   If this is so, would we want to waste time trying to work AGAINST God and His purposes??   Now, my dear friends, is THE TIME to do the Lord's work, by sharing the Gospel !  Because, as soon as God has "His Number of Saints" all wrapped up and ready for Rapture -- it will come !   Don't get left behind, friends....  please.   My wife still doesn't want the Rapture to come yet, because her loved ones are NOT BELIEVERS, yet.   I say,  "DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT !!"   If nothing else, just sit down, compose a letter, and/ or practice what and how to present it to your unbelieving children, family, relatives and friends !   That is what I have done for many years.   And then your conscience will be completely free from "blood guilt", worry, stress, pity, and self incrimination-- guilt ! ! !    And then who can ever say that they never got the chance to reach out and accept Jesus Christ as their own personal, dear Savior and Lord !   God is completely JUST,  but we are his Soldiers/ Workers.  If we are truly Saved, we ought to be telling all those dear to us about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, urging people to at least read the two books of John, and Romans, to get the full sense of what we need to do, urgently, NOW !
     For many of my readers, this news is old, and much repeated, in hopes that I got every reader to understand this vital information, and encouragement.   Sorry if you are bored to death.   According to my good Pastor Kevin Sullivan, a smart KJV Bible guy, who never stops ministering to his flock and the who U.P. area, even the "Jail Ministry" where many embraced the gravity of their mistakes, and grab hold of Jesus, their Savior..... and many times, that is just what it takes to shake a man into reality.   Truly,  it took a short term homelessness and poverty for me to get down on my knees in a horrible place and beg God to help me !!!  And that was in a cock roach infested, one room flop house above a tavern, with a community bath room, and nothing more!   That is where and how I found the Lord, but I am too ashamed to tell many about that time.   After that, everything good came together for me !    Now I am super blessed with plenty, and a loving wife, named Terri.   I am truly blest, and THANK  YOU, Jesus !
     And before that I was so prideful, and 'full of myself' being educated, skilled in welding, college,  in line to be called back to Chrysler, etc.  Surely, the  Father God knows how to humble his sons and daughters to make them pure, and get their heads straight !   Please read the book of Hebrews, especially, chapter 12: 1--10.  "For whom the Lord loveth he chastenth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth."   Even as our own fleshly fathers on earth spank us to correct our steps, so too, our Heavenly Father correct us too,  because He loves us dearly.   We will never be perfect on earth ---  but God wants us to try hard to clean ourselves up to the best of our ability, relying on the Holy Spirit and the Bible to keep us in line....  and we will be more happy and without the stress of the 'animalistic, wild, debased, fleshly world outside the Christian Community.'   Just think of all our butchers Christian brothers and sisters in the Middle East, and how the worm in the WH does nothing to protect them !!   But he really supports, arms, and funds ISIS, clandestinely.    Sorry, friends,  It's really hard for me to control my wrath for such traitors.
     But, SMILE,  for our deliverance is near.
    I am still struggling to heal my leg, and will go into the IM-- VAMC, soon for another bone scan, that I hope will come out negative.   I hate to even go into hospitals, but it seems that I am there at least 3 times a week, to see a good male RN, "Wound Specialist" named Steve, my new friend, who recently accepted the Lord, as I had the distinct honor to lead him, with my wife sitting there in awe.  Please pray that he takes hold and matures well and fast, please.    He is so busy caring for so many other Veterans.... one of the 'Good Guys.' 

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

I am the Soldier [helicopter door gunner on the Left, at the BearCat, 240th AHC-- EM Club, relaxing after a hard day's work of flying [EVERY SINGLE], with my buddies.  Thanks to my past friend, Walt Weber --gunner, who snapped this picture of us, back in 1970, and then sent it to me out of the blue, about 30 years later !  What a hoot !  Thank You, dear Lord, for protecting me in my 2 long years of combat over in RVN: 68-70 ---other than  some combat PTSD, etc. !  PTL.

 Prophetic Alert: The looming war with Islam

The occupant of the Oval Office has now vowed to dismantle the Islamic State. He said, "We are going to systematically degrade their capabilities. We're going to shrink the territory that they control. And ultimately we're going to defeat them." There are many facets to what the "president" is saying, including the free will of men, and the ancient prophecies held in the Holy Scripture. The world is quite possibly witnessing one of the major harbingers of end time prophecy. It could be just a type and shadow of what is to come. It could be groundwork for the end times. With a few additional details, the world could be standing on the threshold of the prophecies of Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, John and many others.

Irrespective of your eschatological beliefs, it is undeniable that the traditional enemies of Israel will come against it in the end times. Those traditional enemies specifically include the Arab/Islamic people groups surrounding Israel today and have fought against it since the maturation of Ishmael, Esau, Midian, Moab, Amon, and the intermarrying of these lines becoming the "mixed" Arab peoples. They will come against Israel, that the Lord will intervene and, as Ezekiel 38:23 says, "...and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD." And Israel shall, as in Ezekiel 39:28, 29, "...know that I am the Lord their God...Neither will I hide my face any more from them."

Free will. In his June 2009 "New Beginnings" speech in Cairo, Egypt, the "president" historically reversed American foreign policy by shifting away from support of Israel and embracing Islam. He assisted in the strategic planning and funding of Arab Spring that ushered in Islam and Sharia Law throughout many Northern Africa and Middle Eastern nations. He threw his lot in with the traditional enemies of Israel and America through embracing the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) as a foreign policy partner and accepting al Qaeda as the premier MB military arm. US tax dollars and political power supplied weapons and support for establishing, equipping and training a proxy to remove Syria's Bashar Assad. 

This proxy, which coalesced MB- and al Qaeda-linked groups such as al Nursa and smaller jihadi factions, morphed into the Islamic State. The Islamic State has declared itself a caliphate. It aims to topple Assad and claim territory and spoil while bringing the Levant into submission to Sharia. Its brutality is unmatched in modern times. It is clandestinely supported by Turkey, the land of Magog, Meshech, and Tubal. The US "president" vows now to "defeat" what he helped create. Mark these words: His plan will drain American blood and resources toward an effort where there is absolutely no political solution. He will weaken America and all who follow his lead, while strengthening the resolve of Islam.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Syria--From Beginning to End.

Tom's Journal.

Please read this History of Muslim persecution and destruction and the contemplate this recent development.
Our President just assured the American people that he is drafting a "strategy" that will inform terrorists and their sponsor nations "once and for all" that the U.S. is now observing their actions and deeds; and, that "we (the U.S.) has a long memory and are very patient."
Now isn't that comforting to freedom loving Americans?  I hope the President's message comforts you and and that it frightens the h--- out of ISIS and all the other muslim groups that are spreading terrorism, murder and mayhem throughout the World! 
He is promising the radical groups that our long memory and patience will prevail in the free world conflicts with tyranny.  Apparently, no one has ever told the president that these people engaged in a war lasting 6,000 years just to determine who would control the Ramada Haddah bluffs and caves in what is now southern Yemen. 

Enjoy, and be comforted!

American Minute with Bill Federer
SYRIA - From Beginning to End?
Did you know Assyria was the world's first empire? 

It was located in what is today Syria and Iraq. 

It was mentioned by name in the Book of Genesis, chapter 1, verse 14: 

"And the name of the third river is Hiddekel (Tigris): that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria." 

Around the year 2371 BC, as related by Peter BetBasoo, the Assyrian Empire under Sargon of Akkad absorbed the original Sumerian civilization of the Mesopotamian Valley. 

The world's first great work of literature is in the original Assyrian language of Akkadian - The Epic of Gilgamesh, written around 2,500 BC. 

Around 1,800 BC, during the time of Abraham, the ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh, near present-day Mosul, became a major religious/cultural center. 

Arameans, descendants of Aram -son of Shem, migrated into Assyria, among the family of Laban, the father of Rebekah who married Issac. 

Deutoronomy 26:5 "Then you shall declare before the Lord your God: 'My father (Jacob) was a wandering Aramean (some translations Syrian), and he went down into Egypt with a few people and lived there and became a great nation, powerful and numerous.'"(NIV) 

The capital of Assyria was Nineveh, where the Old Testament Prophet Jonah preached in 760 BC. 

Nineveh was then the largest city in the world. 

Nineveh repented. 

Jonah's tomb existed in Nineveh until it was destroyed by fundamentalist Muslims of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) on July 24, 2014. 

In 727-721 BC, King Shalmaneser V ruled the Neo-Assyrian Empire which carried away Israel's ten northern tribes into captivity. 

Most of the known world was conquered by Assyrian King Tiglath-Pileser III between 745-727 BC. 

King Sennacherib, 705-681 BC, made Nineveh the most magnificent capital in the world at the time.

The word "Arab" is actually the Assyrian word "westerner," first used by King Sennacherib in telling his conquest of the "ma'rabayeh"-westerners. 

Assyrians and Babylonians laid down the fundamental basis of mathematics, the Pythagorean Theorem, the concept of zero, 360 degrees in a circle, parabolic domes and arches, and longitude and latitude in geography. 

By the 8th century BC, so many Arameans had immigrated into Mesopotamia that the Aramaic language became the lingua franca for the entire region, replacing the languages of the Akkadians/Assyro-Babylonians. 

Aramaic was spoken through the time of Christ, and was still in use by Christians in the small Syrian village of Ma'loula till it was overrun by fundamentalist Muslim fighters in September of 2013. 

Beginning in 538 BC, Assyria was ruled by other empires for the next 7 centuries: 

Persian Achaemenid; 
Macedonian (Alexander the Great); 
Parthian Arascid; 
Roman; and 

Greeks first began using the shortened name "Syria" to refer to western Assyria. 


With the arrival of Christianity, Saint Thomas, Saint Bartholemew and Saint Thaddeus founded the Assyrian Christian Church in 33 AD. 

A dialect of the Aramaic language called 'Syriac' became the new lingua franca of that part of the world. 

The Apostle Paul evangelized in Syria, beginning in the city of Damascus. 

The very word "Christian" was first used for followers of Jesus Christ in Antioch, Syria. (Acts 11:23-26) 

By the year 265 AD, Syria was one of the first nations to be completely Christian. 

In 269 AD, Syrian Queen Zenobia led a famous revolt against the Romans 

In the 4th, 5th and 6th centuries, Christian Assyrians began a systematic translation of Greek works in religion, science, philosophy (Socrates, Plato and Aristotle) and medicine (Galen) into Syriac. 

One of the greatest Christian Assyrian achievements of the 4th century was the founding of the first university in the world, the School of Nisibis, with departments in theology, philosophy and medicine. 

It a center of intellectual development in the Middle East and the model for the first Italian university. 

Assyrian Christians pioneered hospitals, with the Bakhteesho family having nine generations of physicians and founding the great medical school at Gundeshapur in present-day Iran. 

The Assyrian Christian physician, Hunayn ibn-Ishaq, wrote a textbook on ophthalmology in 950 AD which remained the authoritative source until 1800 AD. 

Assyrian Christian philosopher Job of Edessa developed a physical theory of the universe rivaling Aristotle's. 

In the 5th century, nine Christian Syrian Monks translated Greek, Hebrew, and Syriac works into the Ethiopian language of Ge'ez and organized Christian monastic orders and schools, some of which are still in existence. 

Saint John of Damascus in Syria, the Patriarch of Jerusalem, was one of the greatest scholars in the 8th century. 

The literary output of the Assyrians and Jews was vast. After Latin and Greek, the third largest corpus of Christian writing was in the Assyrian "Syriac" language. 

Assyrian missionaries brought Syriac 'Nestorian' Christianity into Mesopotamia, then into the Persian Sassanid Empire, India, Central Asia, the Uyghurs, the Tang Dynasty of China, Korea, Japan, and the Philippines. 

As Arab Muslims swept in a torrent through the Middle East beginning in 630 AD, Chaldean and Babylonian astronomers were forcibly Islamized till they eventually disappeared. 

In the 7th century, Syrian scholars translated Greek works into Arabic. 

The book, How Greek Science Passed to the Arabs, documented the work of 22 scholars, 20 of which were Christian Assyrians, with only 1 Persian and 1 Arab. 

These translations were later taken by Moors into Spain, where Europeans translated them into Latin, laying the groundwork for the Renaissance. 

As Muslims conquered trade routes to the east, they co-opted advances made by other civilizations and claimed them as their own. 

The thousands of years of rich Assyrian civilization was expropriated into the Arab culture. 

As the heavy burdens of the "dhimmi" status and intermittent persecutions caused the Assyrian Christian community to decline, the so-called Golden Age of Islam likewise declined. 

Then Turkish Muslims invaded. 

Gregory Bar-Hebraeus (1226-1286), a Syrian Orthodox Church leader, wrote how Turkish Muslim tolerance toward Christians turned to hate: 

"And having seen very much modesty and other habits of this kind among Christian people, certainly the Mongols loved them greatly at the beginning of their kingdom, a time ago somewhat short. 

But their love hath turned to such intense hatred that they cannot even see them with their eyes approvingly." 

In 1268, Mamluk Sultan Baibars conquered Antioch, Syria, and slaughtered all the Christian and Jewish men and sold the women into slavery, smashed church crosses, burned Bibles, desecrated graves, and dragged every priest, deacon, and monk to the altar and slit their throats. 

Mamluk Sultan Baibars destroyed the Church of St. Paul and the Cathedral of St. Peter. 

In response to cries for help, King Louis IX of France set sail from Aigues-Mortes in 1270 leading the 8th Crusade to come to the aid of Christian states in Syria. 

King Louis IX was diverted to Tunis where he was defeated and died of dysentery. 

In 1271, Edward I, the future King of England, undertook a 9th Crusade to help in Syria.

Tripoli (in present-day Lebanon) fell to Mamluk Sultan Qalawun in 1289, and Acre fell to Mamluk Sultan as-Ashraf Khalil in a bloody siege in 1291, thus ending the last traces of Christian rule in Syria. 

When Marco Polo traveled east in 1271 AD, he noted Assyrian Christian missionaries had converted tens of thousands in Indian and China to Syrian "Nestorian" Christianity. 

Even the influential mother of Kublai Khan, Sorghaghtani Beki, was a Nestorian Christian. 

The first Mongolian system of writing used the Assyrian "Syriac" alphabet, with the name "Tora Bora" being an Assyrian phrase meaning "arid mountain." 

As during the Tang Dynasty, there was a thriving Syrian Nestorian Christian community in China during the Yuan Dynasty. 

Nestorian Christianity declined in China when the Ming Dynasty forced out Mongolian and other foreign influences. 

Nestorian Christianity was eradicated from Persia and Central Asia by the Muslim crusader Tamerlane, who massacred an estimated 17 million. 

In 1399, Tamerlane invaded Syria, sacked Aleppo and captured Damascus, massacring the inhabitants and erecting towers made out of skulls. 

Northern Iraq had remained Assyrian Christian until Tamerlane systematically decimated the population. 

When Turks began imposing the Turkish language throughout the Ottoman Empire, Syrian Christian scholars preserved the Arabic language. 

For centuries, Syria was under Ottoman Muslim rule. 

In 1867, Mark Twain visited Syria, writing in his bookInnocents Abroad: 

"Then we called at...the mausoleum of the five thousand Christians who were massacred in Damascus in 1861 by the Turks. 

They say those narrow streets ran blood for several days, and that men, women and children were butchered indiscriminately and left to rot by hundreds all through the Christian quarter; they say, further, that the stench was dreadful. 

All the Christians who could get away fled from the city, and the Mohammedans would not defile their hands by burying the 'infidel dogs.' 

The thirst for blood extended to the high lands of Hermon and Anti-Lebanon, and in a short time 25,000 more Christians were massacred and their possessions laid waste... 

How they hate a Christian in Damascus! - and pretty much all over Turkeydom as well." 

In 1908, a Turkish Spring began. 

The brief euphoria when the Ottoman tyrant Sultan Abd-ul-Hamid was forced from power quickly turned to horror. 

Three Pashas, known as "The Young Turks" promoted the idea of "Ottomanization" - creating a homogeneous Turkey of one race, one language, and one religion - Islam. 

Fundamentalist Turkish Muslims systematically expelled or exterminated hundreds of thousands of non-Muslims. 

While the world focused on Germany, France and England during World War I, Turkish Muslims massacred ethnic minorities. 

Over 750,000 Syrians, 1 million Greeks, Albanians, Serbs, and Bulgarians, and over 1.5 million Armenian men, women and children were killed. 

Historian Arnold Toynbee wrote: 

"Turkish [Muslim] now, oppressing or massacring, slaughtering or driving from their homes, the Christian population of Greek or Bulgarian stock... 

Armenia and Cilicia, and Syria, where within the last two years it has been destroying its Christian subjects... 

The Young Turkish gang who gained power when they had deposed Abd-ul-Hamid, have surpassed even that monster of cruelty in their slaughter." 

After World War I, the Ottoman Empire fell. 

Britain took Iraq as a protectorate, allowing them independence 1932, but one of Iraq's first governmental acts was to massacre 3,000 Assyrians in the village of Simmele. 

France took Lebanon and Syria as protectorates, allowing them independence in 1943 and 1946, respectively. 

Though a republic, Syria soon suffered upheaval, coup d'etat, socialism, riots, and civil disorder. 

The "Arab Spring" led by the Muslim Brotherhood initiated a plan to oust moderate leaders and re-establish the caliphate - a totalitarian Islamic State. 

When the U.S. reduced its support of moderate leaders and pulled its last troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan in 2014, it left a power vacuum. 

In exchange for Army defector Sgt. Bowe Berghdahl, the Barack Hussein Obama released five senior Afghan Taliban commanders capable, according to a 2008 Pentagon dossier, of leading Muslim fighters in the Middle East and in America: 

Mullah Mohammad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Khairullah Khairkhwa and Mohammed Nabi Omari. 

The U.S. [Barack Hussein Obama] supported the Muslim Brotherhood in ousting Mubarak in Egypt, then supplied arms to fundamentalist Muslim fighters in ousting Gaddafi in Lybia, then supplied and trained Muslim fighters to oust Assad in Syria. 

When Russia came to Assad's defense, these fighters took the name ISIS and invaded Iraq, killing, raping, and beheading tens of thousands. 

Since 2012, nearly a quarter of a million [250,000] have been killed in Syria and Iraq by fundamentalist Muslim ISIS fighters. 

Retired Gen. Wesley Clark reported on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper," August 25, 2014, that ISIS is funded by U.S. allies of the Arab Gulf, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. 

Reuters reported July 14, 2013, the U.S. [Barack Hussein Obama] is selling Qatar $11 billion worth of Apache attack helicopters and Patriot and Javelin air-defense systems. 

German journalist Manuel Ochsenreiter told, August 21, 2014, the U.S. is supporting ISIS through its allies: 

"In order to fight against the Islamic State in a successful way the West needs to sanction and punish all those powers that are supporting the Islamic State, namely Muslim Turkey and the Islamic Gulf states... 

'We have to see the Islamic State terrorists as a Western-created monster. 

The Islamic State would not exist without the fierce Western help and also the support by the Muslim Arabic Gulf States, as well as the support from Turkey... 

Nobody was talking about helping Christians in the region." 

Christian and Yazidis minorities are given the choice: convert to Islam, pay the exorbitant dhimmi jizyah tax, flee, or die. 

Hundreds of thousands of Christians fled. 

ISIS destroyed hundreds of Christian churches in Syria and Iraq, such as the ancient 1,800 year old church in Mosul. 

Since the first invasion of Islam in 634 AD, the Assyrian Church of the East, the Syriac Orthodox Church, the Syriac Catholic Church, the Maronite Church, and the Chaldean Catholic Church, quietly suffered 33 major Christian genocides, averaging one every 40 years. 

As reported, the Patriarch of Antioch, Gregory III, who oversees the 1.6 million members of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Palestinian territories and Sudan, stated: 

"Who created this hell in which our people have been living for months?... 

Every day, Islamic extremists from all over the world are pouring into Syria with the sole intent to kill and not one country has done anything to stop them..." 

Gregory III concluded his assessment of Syria: 

"For the last two and a half years, Eastern and Western countries have not stopped sending weapons, money, military experts, secret service agents, and Salafist fundamentalist armed gangs of thugs and criminals, who have fallen on Syria like a destructive new flood." 

The Chaldean Catholic Church is comprised of an estimated 500,000 ethnic Assyrians in northeast Syria, northern Iraq, and areas bordering southeast Turkey and northwest Iran. 

Chaldean Catholic Church Patriarch Louis Sako stated in September 2014 when asked by reporters at Beirut's airport of remarks attributed to him in the daily Ad-Diyar in which he accused the U.S. of supporting ISIS: 

"The U.S. [Barack Hussein Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood supporting Administration] are indirectly responsible for what is going on in Iraq..." 

Sako continued: 

"Our Muslim neighbors did not help us [Christians.] Issuing a fatwa preventing Muslims from killing fellow Muslims is not enough." 

Patriarch Sako stated: 

"For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians."
