Caution, extremely violent and graphic truth:

Friends,    I an NOT promoting any label, brand or product,  but just passing along some good, solid, Information about healing Herbs and other Nutrients.   They seem to work on me  --- I am still alive !

Surprise !   I finally learned how to tie the Bowline knot today,  and now to learn other good knots to help me in my every day life.   I know that this is a 'baby step' for me and very basic,  but sometimes I seem to have a "mental block" and just can't 'connect the dots.'  Besides that, I am an old Army guy, and RETIRED !  Smile.

Turmeric: Doctors Say This Spice
Is a Brain Health Miracle

Discover the Simple Natural Solution to Lifelong Cognitive Health

By Joshua Corn, Editor-in-Chief of the Live in the Now Natural Health Newsletter

Are you concerned about maintaining the health of your brain as you age? You're not alone. Losing one's memory and mental abilities to cognitive decline is something we all fear, and the current statistics on the prevalence of cognitive decline in this country are not pretty. By age 65, sadly 1 in 8 Americans will suffer from severe cognitive decline, and by age 80, an astonishing 1 in 2 will.[1]

Researchers have been working for years to develop an effective treatment. But one "miracle" drug after another has failed to live up to its promises, and it's becoming more and more apparent that pharmaceuticals are not the solution. Unfortunately, the medical establishment is so narrowly focused on finding an elusive "cure" that scientifically proven prevention strategies are often ignored.

I'm Joshua Corn, Editor-in-Chief of Live in the Now, one of the fastest growing natural health publications in the nation. My passion for natural health drives me to seek the truth about the causes of health problems and to educate people on alternative solutions that are both safe and effective.

Please keep reading, because I'll tell you about an amazingly effective way to protect your brain from the ravages of cognitive decline and boost your thinking and memory abilities quickly, naturally and safely.

Nature's Brain-Protecting Miracle brain image

There are a number of natural brain protectors out there, but did you know that one herb has shown more promise when it comes to supporting your neurological system than any other medical finding to date? It's a scientific fact that curcumin, an antioxidant compound found in the root of the turmeric plant, is one of the most powerful natural brain protecting substances on the planet! It continues to amaze scientists with its remarkable cognitive health benefits.

You may be familiar with turmeric as the bright yellow spice that is commonly found in curry powder. Turmeric has a long history as a healing herb and culinary spice in India. Interestingly, India has the highest per capita consumption of turmeric AND the lowest incidence of cognitive decline worldwide![2]

Your Brain on Curcumin
The hallmark process associated with certain types of cognitive decline is the formation in the brain of abnormal protein structures. Normally when malformed proteins are formed with the brain, the immune system sends out cells known as macrophages, which engulf and destroy the proteins. If this ordinary function fails, defective proteins accumulate in the brain and cognitive decline can follow.

That's why I was excited to read that recent research is showing that curcumin encourages the immune system to send macrophages to the brain. A landmark clinical trial involving people with severe cognitive decline measured the effects of curcumin. Amazingly, the participants taking curcumin had significantly higher levels of dissolved abnormal proteins in their blood compared to those in the placebo group.

This study showed that curcumin has the ability to effectively pass into the brain, bind to beta-amyloid plaques and assist the body in their breakdown.[3] Curcumin is one of the only substances known to have such a profound protective effect on the brain.

Curcumin Combats Dangerous Inflammation

You may have heard about the dangers of "silent" chronic inflammation. It's been discussed by Dr. Oz and have made headlines in publications such as Newsweek and Time. It's important for you to know that low-grade inflammation is rapidly becoming recognized as the root cause of the development of cognitive decline, as well as a wide range of serious health problems.[4]
The dangers of "silent" inflammation have been discussed by Dr. Oz and have made headlines in publications such as Newsweek and Time. Unfortunately, most people don't do anything until the initial symptoms, such as muscle aches and joint discomfort, appear. When this happens, their gut reaction often is to go see a doctor, who is unlikely to correctly diagnose the problem, and more than likely will prescribe drugs that are far from safe and only provide short-term benefits.

But the initial symptoms of pain are just the beginning. If left unchecked, chronic inflammation can damage your body in many ways. One of the worst examples of this is cognitive decline, which can ravage your memory and severely impact your quality of life in what should be your golden years. man

Cutting-edge science is showing that curcumin is one of the most powerful, natural anti-inflammatories ever studied. Curcumin is so effective because it is a potent inhibitor of the body's most powerful inflammation-causing chemical, called Nf-kappa beta. Miraculously, curcumin has been shown in numerous studies to tame joint pain and muscle soreness, protect the brain, support cardiovascular health, bolster immunity and more.[5,6,7,8,9] If you have a lingering health problem that no doctor can resolve, you may be suffering from chronic inflammation and curcumin may be just the natural solution you've been looking for.

How to Get the Most Out of Curcumin

Although you may be able to find high quality turmeric powder at your local market, it's very difficult to verify its purity and potency. Plus, it's almost impossible to incorporate therapeutic amounts of curcumin into your diet on a daily basis as a spice. So, to put it simply, a high-quality curcumin supplement is your best bet!

However, not all curcumin supplements are created equal. Unfortunately, most supplements out there don't have the necessary doses and components to get the job done. If you take the wrong supplement, you'll end up not only wasting money, but missing out on an incredible opportunity to protect your brain and keep harmful inflammation at bay.

There are 3 major factors to consider when deciding on a curcumin supplement:
1. Standardization and Dose: Standardization is the process by which the active ingredients in a plant are concentrated and brought to a consistent level. The active ingredients of turmeric are called curcuminoids, and there are actually three components: curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin. Any good curcumin supplement should include all 3 of these curcuminoids and be standardized to at least 75%. Otherwise, what you're getting could be little more than a pill filled with powdered turmeric root. Also, the minimum recommended daily dose is 1,000 mg per day.
2. Absorption: One problem with curcumin is that it's not easily absorbed. However, it was discovered that an extract of black pepper, called piperine, significantly enhances absorption of curcumin. In fact, one study found that the addition of a piperine increased bioavailablity by 2,000%![10] So make sure that any curcumin supplement you take contains this important extract.
3. Price: Some people mistakenly believe if you pay more you get better quality. My advice is that you don't need to pay more than $30 for a one month supply. Many companies are taking advantage of the hype surrounding curcumin and charging more than double this.

The Curcumin Supplement I Personally Recommend

Since cognitive decline and chronic inflammation are so widespread, I consider curcumin a "must take" supplement. However, when I was looking at the different options out there, I was shocked by how many poor quality curcumin supplements there were. The ones that had "all the right stuff" were absurdly expensive, making this lifesaving nutrient off-limits for too many people!

That's why I took it upon myself to develop an effective AND affordable curcumin supplement called Curcumin2K®. In addition to my work with Live in the Now, I'm also the CEO of Stop Aging Now, a company that has been making premium grade dietary supplements for over 15 years. I developed Curcumin2K working with my Scientific Advisory Board, and it's simply the most effective and most affordable curcumin supplement on the market.

I invite you to do your own research to make sure I'm not just shamelessly promoting my own product, but I think you'll find no other curcumin product like Curcumin2K. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Curcumin2K is made with a potent 1,330 mg dose of turmeric extract (roughly the equivalent of 13 heaping tablespoons of turmeric powder) standardized to contain a minimum of 95% curcuminoids, which is the highest level achievable.
  • Curcumin2K is enhanced with 20 mg of BioPerine® black pepper extract standardized to contain 95% piperine. BioPerine is the brand used in all the research that has shown piperine increases curcumin's absorption by up to 2,000%!
  • Curcumin2K is made in the USA in an FDA inspected facility to meet or exceed stringent USP standards for quality, purity and potency.
  • Curcumin2K ships to you for free, is tax-free and comes with an amazing 365-day "any reason" guarantee. This way you risk nothing!
  • Curcumin2K is available for as little as $19.95 per bottle (which lasts a full month). This is up to 3 times less than similar high quality brands.

Our Curcumin2K Customers Say It Best...

We already have tens of thousands of satisfied Curcumin2K customers. One of the best parts of my job is reading some of their remarkable success stories. Here are just a few that I've recently received:
Since taking Curcumin2K my memory is quicker.
"I only use Stop Aging Now supplements because they're made in the USA and I've had great results. I've noticed since taking Curcumin2K that my memory is quicker. A great company with great products."

- Terry Bart from Jackson, WY
Curcumin2K is far superior.
"Curcumin2K is far superior to the curcumin I had been taking. The potency is much higher, plus it contains black pepper extract. I always find your products to be superior even to the higher-priced brands."

- Kathleen Roper from Fennville, MI
This product has been a lifesaver for me!
"I noticed shortly after taking Curcumin2K that my joint discomfort started to decrease and I was able to become more active again!!!! This product has really been a lifesaver for me! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!"

- Peter Dialfonso from Somerset, NJ
Within 5 days I noticed the difference.
"I am 66 years old and recently decided to try Curcumin2K. Within 5 days I noticed the difference and after 1 week 90% of all my "old age" symptoms had TOTALLY disappeared! I now enjoy life without pain."

- Ruth Rich from Possum Creek, AU

I Want to Do More Than Just Sell You a Bottle

I truly believe that Curcumin2K will improve your health in more ways than you dreamed possible. I take it daily, and so do my wife, parents and many of my friends. But I certainly don't expect you to take my word for it!

You can try Curcumin2K risk-free. Not only is it extremely affordable, it will ship to you for free and is tax free, but if you don't get results, your entire order is free! Curcumin2K also comes with an amazing 365-day "any reason" guarantee. That's right...try it for up to a year and if it doesn't work, it's FREE. I stand by this product 100%. If you don't like it, you may return your purchase any time within one year for a full, no questions-asked refund. That way, you risk nothing.

Order Now And Feel Better Within 7 Days!

The best thing about Curcumin2K is how rapidly it begins to work. When I began taking it, I noticed the benefits within a few days, and I personally guarantee that you'll have a similar experience. Here's what you can expect:
Protection for your brain and cognitive function
Improved mental clarity and memory retention
Better mood balance and more energy
A healthier heart and more balanced cholesterol
Fewer aches and pains and less stiffness
Smoother, more youthful-looking skin
Support for liver health and detoxification
Antioxidant protection against free radicals
An overall increased sense of vitality

Whether you decide to use Curcumin2K or take another approach, I hope I've convinced you to take protecting your cognitive health seriously. I consider Curcumin2K one of the most important supplements I currently take. I think you'll find the same is true for you, so I hope that you'll give it a try!

Tom's Journal.

Good Day,  Friends !
     Nice, but cool weather U.P. here today, but we never have a  "Fall" in the U.P.  Just Summer, and then, Winter !   Ha!  But it's very beautiful in this upper peninsula woods/  area and the deer are moving and walking all over the place as if they owned it.... but we don't mind one bit... as we love all the wild life and Nature.  

My new partial upper teeth needed to be 'trimmed and reshaped' -- so that they would not hurt my gums so bad, today, also.    The Dentist gentleman treated me well,  but I always go there with respect and humility.    My wife will debate that statement, as she sees life much differently.   Men are usually more 'DIRECT,'  STRAIGHT FORWARD, BLUNT, but we speak our old "Army Language" that is so understandable within our "Group" and that's GOOD,  because there are less verbal mistakes that intended.   Where civilians fumble for the correct P.C. words,  Veterans speak directly and with greater understanding, IMHO.  [In My Humble Opinion].   

My wife has her personal "Projects" during the Summer, and Winter, and now taking her time redoing the front porch entity, with much drilling, sawing, sanding, chiseling, hammering, that is non-stop next to the living room, so that watching TV is totally messed up!   Don't ever try to ask her for a few minutes of time to communicate, or other wise....LOL, if you don't want to be beat up and chastised.    Like a Golden Retriever, type of dog, that is only focused on ONE THING,  getting the fallen shot animal that the Master just brought down !   Personally,   I think it's a 'Catholic Thing'....  where those nice folks believe that if they are not working hard all the time,  the devil might catch them and drag them to hell.   I was in a Milwaukee Catholic school in grade school,  as they taught:  "Idleness is the devil's work shop !"   OK,  I'd better stop complaining not,  but I knew that our short 'time out' was only temporary at best.   Let us pray and ponder on this point and also read the book of Proverbs.   

Now,  I have come to the point of figuring out that I HAVE ENOUGH Prepping stuff, and being prepared, so that stuff is now dormant and stashed in a cubby hole in the back of my mind, so I can now take care of other things.   You See !!   I am NOT myopic, narrow minded, over focused, so that I can take care of other important business !   PTL.   When you/ we are done with a project,  just STOP AND LET IT GO !!   You have to be SATISFIED with things after you've done your best !   Maybe we have out priorities mixed up/ messed up, and we have to stop, sit down in silence and PONDER [THINK DEEPLY and  SLOWLY], of what GOD wants us to do.    Not like a bird dog who is let outside to 'do his duty' --- but instead the goofy dog has to check out every dang bush, tree, to pee, rather than what he was let out to do.... just pee in the RIGHT SPOT ! !    All dog owner KNOW what I mean....   Ha!   I call this:   "Rose Bushing" --- as the dog HAS TO STOP AT EVER ROSE BUSH IN THE BACK YARD, before he finally remembers to go to his right, private, special area to empty his bladder !   If I ask my wife to 'please, get me some cool water, or what ever,  she does 5 other things FIRST, before helping me out !!'   That is the crux of the matter,  but she is so INDEPENDENT and proud of Women's Lib  ----- which is contrary to the bible !  OK, she is NOT my slave or servant, but my co-equal, lovely mate, partner,   but we try to help each other, even as I am disabled.  
       But,  the VA doctors and staff are now working hard to help my feet from hurting most of the time that I stand up, walk, move, travel, and I am getting some new orthopedic shoes, SOON ! !   That is one reason I am so happy today.  Smile.   All that the VA is [finally] doing might help me walk again with out such pain !!   They have me driving to the VA so many times for this and that....  but I am thinking that I should do all these things and 'jump thru their hoops'  because some day and perhaps soon,  the Gov't will cut our benefits because they are BANKRUPT !   I firmly believe that the time could come any week or day now, and so I Prep.     Friends,   I urge you to do the same and Prep. NOW,  because all these services and benefits MIGHT dry up, never to be had anymore.   Get your own health in good order, now, as best you can, so you can survive better when everything else is all dried up, and the wind blew it away.   Feed Back ??   Am I right or wrong?  
       I also found a "new source for buying reasonable Silver, and other PM's."   I will share these resources with those who have guts enough to email me.   After the  "Bubble bursts" --- silver and gold will shoot up, and quad triple in value to trade for food, water, medicine, ammo, etc., dear brothers and sisters.    
       I am drinking the last of my soda pop, and will then start drinking more pure, clean, water !   Nobody, hardly cooks for me anymore....  'they are too busy,' and cannot be bothered.   So, usually, I MIGHT get one meal a day, at supper time,  if I'm lucky and behave like a perfect gentleman.   Honestly,   I would not mind so much, except that I NEED TO EAT SOMETHING after or before I take the VA's harsh medicines, etc.   Or my poor old stomach will  burn and pain me.    So I buy certain stuff/ foods in the store, like cheap baloney, cheese and rye bread to feed myself...  so I more/ or less live on Baloney for months on end.   Ha!   Some things never change ---- but putting our trust and love in Father God is the smartest thing to do,  in my humble opinion, folks/ friends.
      I am very tired of the constant bombardment from radio and TV/ Internet, about Politics, which is a big smoke screen to distract us while the Muslims infiltrate and plan to bring explosives and possibly an IMP device to totally 'mess us up !'     Those of us who are KJV Bible loving Christians who love and trust in Christ,  should be happy and joyous,  because we know from Luke 21: 28...'that our redemption draweth nigh.'   The old English term, "nigh", means NEAR.  
    Have a great day !

Thomas G Schuckman

'The old days, when I used to get long needles in the knees...  but I finally got so bad that I had both knees 'replaced' with steel and plastic.

This is one of our famous 240th AHC, Gunships,  but I flew in "Slicks" [the H model],        
that   primarily transported the Infantry into battle, or extracted them later, or if the fighting got too hot, etc.   We all had to work together like a well- oiled machine.   The "U"H1-H [Huey] helicopter... the U stands for "utility."  We could move, transport and haul many things, including people and guns.   High Adventure !  Flying 7 days a week...  Forever !

A matter of prophecy and national defense

The UK's Daily Express is quoting from a book written by German reporter Jurgen Todenhofer who successfully embedded himself with the Islamic State (IS) that says nuclear annihilation across the globe is the goal. In his book "Inside IS--Ten Days in the Islamic State," Todenhofer claims "The terrorists plan on killing several hundred million people. The west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS. ISIS intends to get its hands on nuclear weapons," calling the group a "nuclear tsunami preparing the largest religious cleansing in history." The US "president's" capitulation to Iran's nuclear program may trigger a nuclear arms race that gives IS a great advantage in obtaining nuclear weapons.

Todenhofer says, "They (IS) now control land greater in size than the United Kingdom and are supported by an almost ecstatic enthusiasm the like of which I've never encountered before in a war zone. Every day hundreds of willing fighters from all over the world come. They are the most brutal and most dangerous enemy I have ever seen in my life. I don't see anyone who has a real chance to stop them. Only Arabs can stop IS. I came back very pessimistic." The Washington Post reports that with more countries obtaining nukes, the greater the possibility terrorists could obtain the weapon. Certainly, targets for such acquisition already include an unstable Pakistan and it is also possible Iran could side with IS.

All the brainiacs in foreign policy analysis say that the Sunnis and the Shiites will not work together. Don't believe it. They hate America and Israel more than they hate each other. Former Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Curt Weldon documents in his book "Countdown to Terror" a "Committee of Nine" which is an elite coordinating committee of terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda, Hizbollah, Islamic Jihad and others who partner with the Muslim Brotherhood in sponsoring terrorism worldwide. The committee is headed by Iran's Ayatollah Khameni, according to Weldon's sources. From Persia, we can see that Islam is moving on the rest of the world by colonization, terrorism, and by political means.

Despite warnings from Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and various others who understand the true motives of Islamists throughout the world, the US "president" has pursued negotiations with Iran that will permit the coordinator of world terrorism to obtain nuclear weapons. The American leadership is paving the way for persecution of Christians and Jews and the escalation of a new Islamic order. Isaiah 59:8 says, The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace." Islam will only be emboldened by the unwise actions of the American leadership. Ezekiel 7:25 says, "Destruction comes; and they shall seek peace and there shall be none." It is a threat to world stability and the national security of the US and Israel.

The New Welfare Map.

Tom's Journal.


Paul Driessen} ~ The Middle East is imploding. Islamic State butchers are annihilating Christian and other communities. Putin is sending arms to Assad... Under the nObama-Iran nuclear deal, the mullahs will get $100+ billion to expand their proxy terror war on Israel and the West. Saudi Arabia has 100,000 empty air-conditioned tents but won’t take any of the millions who’ve been driven from their homes. Neither will most of the other 22 Arab League nations or 57 Organization of Islamic Cooperation member countries. Instead, millions of mostly Muslim migrants, militants and refugees are heading to Europe – with limited money, education, job skills, or desire to assimilate. They demand entry into EU countries whose energy, economic, employment and welfare systems are already foundering or nearing collapse.
 America unprepared for Devastating 'Black Swan'  
{F. Michael Maloof} ~ Supply-chain disruptions often are the result of adverse weather, unplanned telecom outages, data breaches or even cyber hacking... However, the one “Black Swan” event that would make these instances pale by comparison and result in a cascading disruption is a natural or man-made electromagnetic pulse event. A “Black Swan” is an event regarded at the time of its occurrence as unprecedented and unexpected but later, in hindsight, understood to have been inevitable. An EMP is in that category, since scientific experts repeatedly warn that a major EMP event is not a question of if, but when.
 'Wake Up!' Muslim persecution of Christians abetted by the West  
{Raymond Ibrahim} ~ Not only is the Islamic State (IS) persecuting Christians but so are the U.S.-supported “rebel” forces, which the nObama administration assures are “moderate.”...  According to a recent NPR report, “With backing from U.S. allies, like Turkey and Saudi Arabia, this U.S. supported rebel coalition fights both the Syrian regime and the so-called Islamic State, or ISIS. But the coalition has extremists in its own ranks who have mistreated Christians and forced them out of their homes”—just as IS has done. In response, Mideast Christian leaders made clear that, far from expecting the West to intervene on their behalf, they merely wish that the West stops arming, supporting, or simply facilitating the Islamic terrorists making their lives a living hell—as plainly spelled out in a Christian Today article titled, “Syrian Christian leader tells West: ‘Stop arming terror groups who are massacring our people.”
 Christian Gospels, The Muslim Quran All Say The Temple Mount Is...  
{Jeff Dunetz} ~ In the latest attempt to de-legitimize the Jewish connection to Israel, Jerusalem and the site of the two holy temples to God...  the Palestinians under the leadership of President Abbas is trying to remove any claim Israel has to Mount Moriah, the Temple mount and Jerusalem the city it sits in, saying “[the Jews] no right to defile” the site with “their filthy feet.” Abbas further urged violence by saying,  “We salute every drop of blood spilled for the sake of Jerusalem.” If Abbas cared about the truth, he would remember that in the ancient texts the ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians, and even the ancient Muslims reported that Jerusalem and Temple Mount were Jewish lands.

Friends,     Praise the Lord !   I have managed to calm down a bit lately by depending more on God's Grace, the Holy Spirit, and just plain trying to be nicer to people.....  see, an old dog can learn new tricks.   Jesus once said to the crowd:  "Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?"  --Matthew 6: 27.   Seems like we will all have some kind of worries... although we need to keep our financial records and accounts in order so the checks are not 'rubber.'     Our church is in need of repair and upkeep, IMHO, and so I am trying to help more.   What I am trying to say is that I believe that our collective finance will get worse.   It's just like the old adage,  "People don't plan to fail --- they fail to plan."   We see things that we WANT -- but really don't need, and if a fire destroyed our home, and we barely had time to escape,  what would we snatch up in one whole minute ???   Some folks believe that a good way to catch monkeys is to pick a gourd with a opening in the top that only allows the monkey to grab the peanuts within --- but if he makes a fist, he can not get the nuts out, and is there for caught !   I know a lot of greedy, selfish, stupid humans too.   I don't claim to be all smart or perfect either.   I cannot remember where I put things, lately.   Maybe I should stop blogging until I have my own life in order.  
      One thing is for sure:   If I 'let some one talk me into doing something' that fails --- I am the one who gets shafted and pays the penalty...  just like my 'house sale'  that went bad in the end.   But I learned not to ever do that stuff again the same way !     

The same way with Welfare:   If more people eating at the public trough than the good folks working to support them, the whole system will IMPLODE !!  House of Cards !   But after studying the Muslim in the WH,  I think this is what he really wants !  

I don't mean to come down and chastise people,  but if they don't know their Bible by NOW,  it may be too late !   The whole World will have to experience some great, horrible event, with total chaos, war, and starvation,  before they all give up their Rights and Freedoms and enter into a One World Gov't ! !  It's as simple at that, and "Big Brother" ---Anti-Christ is already waiting in the wings of the theater to step right in and TAKE OVER !!  Obama is only preparing the way for him and accelerating the time schedule.   I would not even hazard a guess,  because I'd be wrong.    I think that most of us will see that man come and also feel some of his evil, before we are Raptured up.


The New Welfare Map

These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do employed!
The Senate Budget Committee reports that, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.
What's the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.
To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $20.00 an hour.  *************************************

God is "ALLOWING" these things to Come.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Friends,
    Have you ever thought that  you were intelligent enough and well schooled,  but someone else that you like to hang around with just 'says things better ??'     Well,  that's how I feel about Jan Markell, and her weekly update:  "Understanding the Times."   She really lays it out there,   nice and simple !

I am feeling a bit better today and things have calmed down.... and I am so happy right now with peace of mind.   I think all my friends and readers like me better when I am not so 'stressed out' and in a 'defense mode.'   Little Mercies and Grace from the Father in Heaven are so welcome in our every day madness.    When I am in a better, well adjusted mood [PTL],  I tend to help other people as much as I can, in different ways.   I am sorry if I keep repeating myself or using some "Mantra" --- like "study your KJV Bible every day, and reach out and touch someone with the Gospel and Salvation."   But for me, it's like an anchor and heavy duty rope that is tied to a secure mooring or dock, with armed Soldiers guarding things in all corners.
       I'll tell you all something strange that goes on in a war...  Amid all the fighting in the field every day with strike missions written every early morning in the "Flight Platoons" barracks, the Sargent and the planners write with a 'grease pencil' on a large mission board, all the different flights and missions for that day, with names and ships [helicopters].   So we looked  at that hurriedly as we sometimes squeezed in some nasty Army breakfast and then walked or road to the Flight Line to prepare for take off, getting guns and ammo ready and inserting everything into/ on your scheduled ship [a term we used to mean a Helicopter]  A ship is a "Vessel" that CARRIES something or someone.   But every night or late after noon when we all came home [alive] we either took a shower [if it worked] or went to the EM Club for a few beers, to chill out and unwind, or have a small steak grilled outside the Bar, for one dollar.   Remember we didn't earn all that much money in those days of:  68-70.  As Sp/ 4, I drew something like $409/ month, take home ...  so rank meant more money !     But when I got out of the Army in 1970,  $20 could buy 4 bags of groceries and feed us for a week !  Smile.   My point is:   When we all got back to our base / or post in Vietnam, we could rest assured that we had relative PEACE and Safety !!  Of course the VC could fire rockets and mortars at us anytime they wanted, or felt safe, but perhaps you all get the idea.  Well, that was OUR war, so people said,  but a Soldier only follows Orders that big wheels in Congress order.    Some things never change.  

Another huge point that I want to make today is:  'That God "ALLOWS" things to happen, and for a reason !'    God doesn't get any pleasure in seeing his people get killed, maimed, hurt, hunted and tortured.   The fake in the WH COULD do so much to help, save, alleviate the wholesale slaughter of Christians and other victims in the Middle East ! !   Not to worry,  he and all his ilk will surely be accountable to God in the long run.   And yes, it takes real guts to be a Christian now days !   But it's worth the effort if you understand what the Biblical Heaven is.   Not 70 virgins !   Just think of all the holes in that 'belief,'   what kind of Paradise do those 70 virgins get...  duh?   Are women to be treated like cattle and only for a man's pleasure?  God gives the females love, respect, kindness and the husband is supposed to love and cherish them.   Just read the book of Ephesians.

Updated book by Dr. David Reagan

How are Christians to live in the midst of a society that is collapsing into anarchy and a church that is being overwhelmed by apostasy? Are we to ignore the increasing paganism? Can we take a stand against this on behalf of righteousness? Dr. Reagan gives a breathtaking look at the breakdown of society and the apostasy raging within the church. He then outlines how we are to live for Christ. The book includes a survey of God's prophetic promises for the future which guarantee believers a great victory over this world when the Lord Jesus Christ returns.

How Much Closer Are We Now?
By Jan Markell
September 22, 2015
We hear so much about "converging signs" today.  The Bible speaks about end-time signs that will increase like birth pangs near the end. I think we have passed the birth pang process, frankly.  

As a popular TV preacher said, "We're no longer in Kansas, nor the Land of Oz." Like Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz", we're looking around and seeing that everything is different. Everything we once took for granted and considered normal has been fundamentally transformed and usually not for the better.

But God is allowing it all, even if He isn't orchestrating chaos, as He is not a God of chaos. 

Have you noted recent major stories and how they confirm the words of those of us saying that things aren't falling apart, they are falling in place. Stories like . . .
  • Russia and Iran co-operating and conspiring (Ezekiel 38-39).
  • Gog is stirring. Russia has been relatively quiet for decades, but now Vladimir Putin is on the move.
  • With ISIS marching towards Damascus, Syria is begging Israel to fulfill Isaiah 17.
  • The United Nations, Barack Obama, the Pope, and many more, are clamoring for global government (Revelation 13).  All of these men may have interesting assignments in the kingdom of Antichrist.
  • Because of the increase of wickedness, love is growing cold. (Matthew 24:12) Can you say Planned Parenthood? Have we returned to those predicted "days of Noah" where such evil as this was rampant? (Matthew 24:37)
  • How about those "perilous times" (II Timothy 3)? Who other than deluded, power-drunk men and women, would give billions of dollars and nuke capacity to the mullahs who want to bring international chaos on the world so their Mahdi can return? Why would Westerners give such power to ayatollahs who want to ignite EMPs above the free world and send us back to the 1800s? Does the Mad Hatter rule?
  • Yet world leaders are crying in a Chamberlain-esque manner, "peace and safety!" (I Thess 5:3) They are calling evil good (Isaiah 5:20). Lighting the spark for Armageddon is good. Wiping out Israel is good. Making Iran the Mid East power is good. Allowing mad mullahs to mount nukes on their ICBMs, aimed at Western capitals, is good. This is leading to world peace! And the world will be one. Strong delusion!
  • Europe is imploding. Barack Obama has dismantled America. The world is fundamentally transformed, thus it is awaiting a man, somewhere in the shadows, known as the Antichrist. He will  make things right, turn darkness into day, re-distribute wealth, and more. As Paul Henri Spaak, former Secretary General of NATO, said of a future "Mr. Fix-It," if he could lift us out of an economic morass, "be he god or devil, we will receive him." Note the adoration of Pope Francis. This is a foreshadowing. He is warranting the largest security effort in U.S. history. You would think he represents the Second Coming.
  • Apostasy is so bad in many churches that people no longer attend church (II Timothy 4:3).
  • The predicted evil is rising (II Timothy 3). The Hindu goddess Khali was beamed onto the Empire State Building a month ago. Perhaps she is the new matriarch of America, replacing our founders' dream of a God-inspired America.
  • And ALL nations are having "distress with perplexity" (Luke 21:28). ALL nations have dilemmas for which there are simply no solutions which is the meaning of "distress with perplexity".
I could go on and on but you get the point. We can't let breaking news interpret the Bible but we can see that a newspaper in one hand and a Bible in the other is complimentary. This doesn't have to be newspaper exegesis.
Scripture says that when we see these things BEGIN to  happen, we are to lift up our heads and know that our redemption draws nigh. That BEGAN to happen in 1948 with the re-birth of Israel. How much closer are we now?

Everyone who is watching the signs of the times has a sense of urgency. A sense that there is a countdown. A sense that things are not the same and will never be the same again.  
And we don't have a yellow brick road that leads to a fantasy-land where all the good times will resume, but we do have our Heavenly Home where all things are perfect.
