The 2nd Half of 2015.

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


OK Friends....   This is not a "Chicken Little Moment,"  -- Ha!  And being a bible student for many years, I have built up a strong faith in God's Word, and my Lord, Jesus' promises.   But just reason with me a bit, and think about the possibilities, please.  Most of  know that the USA is already bankrupt, and there is NO WAY that we can pay our debts, or the terrific high compound Interest we owe our many creditors, especially China and Japan !  So we smart folks are ahead of that game, I hope.  And so, when [not IF] the stink hits the fan concerning our failed American $$  Dollar monetary system, and many welfare and Gov't systems going down, there  very well MAY BE RIOTS ALL OVER THE BIG CITIES, and much suffering.  Heck,  other countries have already been thru this, and suffering now !   And if people riot and break the law, with plundering, assault, rape, pillage, theft, robbery, and murder,  etc., what would we expect any Gov't to do??  Protect the good people who are NOT rioting and stealing, I would guess.   That seems like one sound reason to me, at least. 
     BTW, I am not looking forward to this time, and I totally understand that the majority will suffer one way or another.   An EMP is also possible,  but I don't think that will come until AFTER the Rapture.   But Father God is the Master and Judge of the Universe, and I could be wrong, I freely admit.    Christ loving, bible smart Christians will prob be spared the most terrible part--- the Great Tribulation,  but we might get too close to the fire and 'feel the heat' so to speak,  but again, my thoughts are only human, and I know that.  

The short and long of it is,  'Trust the Lord with all your heart, and lean not upon your own understanding.   From what I personally see from recent travels and reading/ watching, is people are just trying to survive this 'Rat Race' of staying above water [no pun intended], struggling to stay alive and paying our bills [that grow bigger every year].   At least we are not losing our heads [yet] in this upside down world, at least in the USA...... 

But I just have a gut feeling, and believe in my heart, that we might see something BIG explode, or implode in our country, like a radical change in our currency $$$$$ which will catch most folks unawares and ill prepared to deal with that situation.  I am far from ready, and worry about paying all my bills off, again.   The so-called 'modern Man of the House' is dealing with a contentious wife, women's Lib, greedy spouses that refused to read and study the KJV Bible so they could know how God wants the marriage to be..... thinking and spending more than they should on 'keeping up with the Jones'   and other mundane things, IMHO.   I am just a beat up, disabled old man, limited in my movement and mobility at age 66 after working very hard my entire life, and so I feel so limited compared to my life as a fit, strong, athletic power lifter, and I have pictures and many friends to prove it !    But still, just like the Captain of a ship, what ever happens bad or good, the Captain has his reputation at stake, and he alone bares responsibility.    Remember,  Napoleon once said:  "There is not such a thing as bad soldiers --- only bad officers."   Some one close to me is going to get a rude awakening when the money is gone, and she cannot live like a noble woman anymore....  sorry.   The wheels are turning right now, and God has His plans already set in motion.  
Where do YOU stand ?   All of us are being tempted BIG TIME, right now, by Satan the devil, and he knows and sees what we do, and so he can tempt us when we are weakest, dear friends.    Just read the 6 short Chapters of Ephesians to find out how a husband and wife should act towards each other.   If a wife wants to play dirty pool and shut her hubby off by sleeping in another bed room,  she will surely account for those actions and bear accountability before the Lord !   And if he strays because of this action, she will also have to bear SOME of that responsibility..... and I know that some women get together and brag how poorly they treat their husbands.   And Visa/ Versa for the men, too.   
We should not be worrying about the OTHER person, but pay attention to our own mistakes and sins, as God will Judge us all in the end.   "Be ye angry, and sin not:  let not the sun go down upon your wrath:  Neither give place to the devil."  ---Ephesians 4: 26-27.     And Colossians 3: 2 says, "Set your affections of things above, not on things on the earth."   With all the sex all over the place, on TV, movies, papers, books, the devil is having a field day!   But I have talked to a number of husbands who would be satisfied with just a hug once in a while !!!   Married folks really know how to punish their mates if they don't get their selfish way.... and that is too bad and EVIL!   Isn't it hard enough to go thru life with out little battles and wars in the marriage ?  Shame.   And most of it usually comes down to MONEY, greed and selfishness, both ways.  

       Well,  I guess I have a soft heart and a soft brain, so I allow myself to be drawn in negative situations.... and I need many prayers too, please.   But I am not focusing on my particular life either,  but commitments and promises of all humans, especially those who profess love of Christ.   

Terri hurt her Left shoulder, and it is painful,  so I am doing a little bit more around the house than I have in the past,  but I have been living on Baloney sandwiches the date of her injury on June 11th, but not complaining.   That is mostly what I lived on when I worked at Chrysler Motors, in Kenosha, WI.,  but sometimes I got Tuna fish, and egg salad, etc.  

For some of you who would like to enjoy the Pure, RAW, unfiltered, organic Honey,  contact me:  tschuckman@aol.com   -- and MAYBE I will tell you where to go...  lol.   It's pricy....

7 Key Events That Are Going To Happen By The End Of September
By Michael Snyder
Is something really big about to happen?  For months, people have been pointing to the second half of this year for various reasons.  For some, the major concern is Jade Helm and the unprecedented movement of military vehicles and equipment that we have been witnessing all over the nation.  For others, the upcoming fourth blood moon and the end of the Shemitah cycle are extremely significant events.  Yet others are most concerned about political developments in Washington D.C. and at the United Nations.  To me, it does seem rather remarkable that we are seeing such a confluence of economic, political and spiritual events coming together during the second half of 2015.  So is all of this leading up to something?  Is our world about to change in a fundamental way?  Only time will tell.  The following are 7 key events that are going to happen by the end of September…
Late June/Early July – It is expected that this is when the U.S. Supreme Court will reveal their gay marriage decision.  Most believe that the court will rule that gay marriage is a constitutional right in all 50 states.  There are some that believe that this will be a major turning point for our nation.
July 15th to September 15th – A “realistic military training exercise” known as “Jade Helm” will be conducted by the U.S. Army.  More than 1,000 members of the U.S. military will take part in this exercise.  The list of states slated to be involved in these drills includes Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, California, Mississippi and Florida.
July 28th – On May 28th, Reuters reported that countries in the European Union were being given a two month deadline to enact “bail-in” legislation.  Any nation that does not have “bail-in” legislation in place by that time will face legal actionfrom the European Commission.  So why is the European Union in such a rush to get this done?  Are the top dogs in the EU anticipating that another great financial crisis is about to erupt?
September 13th – This is Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar – the last day of the Shemitah year.  Many are concerned about this date because we have seen giant stock market crashes on the last day of the previous two Shemitah cycles.
On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U.S. history up until that time.  The Dow plummeted 684 points, and it was a record that held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.
On September 29th, 2008 (which was also Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), the Dow fell by an astounding 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time.
Now we are approaching the end of another Shemitah year.  So will the stock market crash on September 13th, 2015?  Well, no, because that day is a Sunday.  So I guarantee that the stock market will not crash on that particular day.  But as Jonathan Cahn has pointed out in his book on the Shemitah, sometimes stock market crashes happen just before the end of the Shemitah year and sometimes they happen within just a few weeks after the end of the Shemitah.  So we are not just looking at one particular date.
September 15th – The 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on this date.  It is being reported that France plans to introduce a resolution which would give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state.  Up until now, the United States has always been the one blocking such a resolution, but Barack Obama is indicating that things may be much different this time around.
September 25th to September 27th – The United Nations is going to launch a brand new sustainable development agenda for the entire planet.  Some have called this “Agenda 21 on steroids”.  But this new agenda is not just about the environment.  It also includes provisions regarding economics, agriculture, education and gender equality.  On September 25th, the Pope will travel to New York to give a major speech kicking off the UN conference where this new agenda will be unveiled.
September 28th – This is the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015.  This blood moon falls on the very first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, it will be a “supermoon”, and it will actually be visible in the city of Jerusalem.  There are many that dismiss the blood moon phenomenon, but we have seen similar patterns before.  For example, a similar pattern of eclipses happened just before and just after the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans in 70 AD.
Perhaps none of this alarms you.  But when you add everything above to the fact that the elite definitely appear to be feverishly preparing for something, a very alarming picture emerges.
For example, due to fears that a “natural disaster” could interrupt their operations in New York, the New York Fed has been working hard to build up a satellite office in Chicago.
What kind of “natural disaster” could possibly be so bad that it would cause the entire New York Fed to shut down?
And NORAD has decided to move back into the base deep inside Cheyenne Mountain after all these years.  The threat of an electromagnetic pulse was the reason given for this decision.
By themselves, perhaps those moves would not be that big of a deal.  But let’s add all of the weird movements of military vehicles and equipment that we have been witnessing lately to this discussion.  I included this list from Intellihub in aprevious article, but I believe that it bears repeating…
  • On March 13th, Intellihub founder Shepard Ambellas detailed photos and documentation of nearly 40 U.S. Army soldiers, wielding training rifles and dressed in full combat gear, participating in an urban warfare style training drill just outside the Texarkana Regional Airport perimeter.
  • In the middle of April, a report out of Big Springs, Texas revealed that a train full of military equipment and over a dozen helicopters had arrived in the town ahead of Jade Helm 2015.
  • Photographs taken in Corona, California a few days later added to the Jade Helm speculation after they showed a MRAP full of what looked to be U.S. Marines driving down the 1-15 freeway. “In broad daylight with not a care in the world”
  • On April 24th a shocking report on Intellihub News detailed armed troops seen confronting angry protesters in a “professional news package”of riot control training released by the military
  • “A massive buildup, a lot of movement and its undeniable at this point,”read the headline on April 25th after a convoy was seen in Oroville, California that stretched as far as the eye could see.
  • Moving into May, photographs taken in Indiana showed a massive military convoy heading down the freeway. The photos, taken by a concerned citizen, show the convoy heading west on I-70 for reasons unknown.
  • Two days later, video footage, this time out of Texarkana, Arkansas, highlighted a convoy of Humvees driving down the highway as well as a trainload of military vehicles that was seen shortly after.
  • In mid May, Intellihub reporter Alex Thomas published a detailed reportthat confirmed that the military was indeed training to take on the American people, this time in the form of domestic house to house raids.
  • The next day a new report, also by Alex Thomas, proved that Marineswere actually practicing for the internment of American citizens.
  • On May 18th, a train full of hundreds of military Humvees was spotted,further revealing the increased military buildup across the country leading into Jade Helm 2015. The train was heading towards Cleveland for unknown reasons although a possible connection to planned upcoming protests had been mentioned.
  • This past week a massive military war game simulation called Raider Focus was announced. The war game will include the largest military convoy seen on the roads of Colorado since World War II.
  • On may 23th, Intellihub News reported on pictures sent to ANP that show a 1/4 mile long military train convoy near the Colorado Wyoming border.
  • Finally, a report published this week detailed a stunning propaganda move by the military involving a New Jersey school and the worship of the military on the streets of America. “As parents, teachers, and students looked on with joy, Marines from the Special-Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force landed helicopters on the baseball diamond of a New Jersey school.”
What does all of this mean?
It is hard to say.  We have imperfect information, so it is difficult to come up with perfect conclusions.
But what I will say is that I believe that the second half of 2015 is going to be extremely significant.  I believe that events are about to start accelerating greatly, and I believe that life in America is about to change dramatically.
So what do you think?  Please feel free to share your thoughts with all of us by posting a comment below…

Does Isaiah 18 Refer To America?

Q.  I have been interested in end-times prophecy for over 20 years. But, I still see and read things that surprise me. (I’m really amazed at how things are happening so quickly now.)
I’ve always heard that the U.S. is not clearly mentioned in Bible prophecy. Some time back I was told that there was a chapter in Isaiah (18) that could be a reference to the U.S. Could this possibly be talking about America? Was there ever a partial fulfillment of this chapter. I would appreciate your insight.

A. There are those who see the United States in Isaiah 18, primarily because of verses 2 and 7 which both say the same thing.
“Go, swift messengers, to a people tall and smooth-skinned, to a people feared far and wide, an aggressive nation of strange speech, whose land is divided by rivers.”
While this is an apt description of the US today, the prophecy was given against Cush, also called Nubia and Ethiopia. The Nubians were a tall smooth skinned people (because they kept themselves shaved) who ruled over Egypt in the general time of Isaiah’s writing. I’m not aware of any Biblical connection that would tie these people to the US today, as is usually the case in dual fulfillment prophecies
