Foreword in Danish:


Hej gode danskere,
det er så dejligt at se så mange af jer der læser/ rammer på min ydmyge Blog: TOM'S JOURNAL. Jeg håber, at jeg deler nogle interessante oplysninger og efterretninger med dig og andre mennesker. Og hvad kunne være vigtigere end en glad, spændende, men fredelige levevis og kærlighed ?? For os, der er gået på pension og klarede sig godt, økonomisk/finansielt, efter en god, lang karriere, fredfyldte og kærlige relationer er bare smuk! I hvert fald i USA, er en af de specielle ting og mål, efter at nogle af os slutte arbejder i en stressende og til tider farligt arbejdsmiljø ! Men alle havde et særligt mål eller hobby, som de altid har ønsket at bruge mere tid på.
Personligt har jeg haft min egen specielle svejseteknikker shop, plus mange andre hobbyer, havearbejde - voksende min egen lækre grøntsager, motorcykelkørsel og træbearbejdning osv. Men jeg ville virkelig gerne udvikle mine læse- og skrivefærdigheder, og skrive en bog! Desuden elsker jeg at undervise andre i bibelen - Bibelen og evangeliet om Jesus Kristus, Bibelen og uddele løbesedler hvor mine ben kunne bære mig.
Nogle af de fattige mennesker i verden skal arbejde meget hårdt, indtil man bare falde døde om. Sikke en skam. Derfor har læst en bog af salmer er så dejligt og fredeligt for mig og andre.
Venlig hilsen

As another summer slowly dies, colder weather is going to start creeping its way into our lives again. In my area this is my favorite time to go backpacking. Less creepy-crawlies, beautiful changing foliage, and not brutally hot during the daytime. A lot of other people feel the same, and outdoor treks may be more enjoyable soon in your area too.
However, the cool that makes being outside more enjoyable can also bring deadly consequences. So what can we do to protect ourselves from bitter cold?
If you get stuck in a survival situation, or want to avoid putting yourself in one while you’re camping/backpacking/canoeing/whatever these are the things that you need to remember.
Cold Basics
The human body runs at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Once we get chilled to the point where our temperature drops to 95 degrees hypothermia sets. The very first thing you need to remember about cold is that you must stay dry. Wet clothing can conduct the heat away from your body up to 50x faster than dry clothing. As a result, getting yourself soaked by rain, covered in snow, or drenched in sweat is a definite no-no.
Do what you can to avoid such situations. Whether that be utilizing snow shoes, wearing a poncho, or taking breaks in manual labor when you start to feel yourself beginning to sweat, do what you must to stay dry.
Proper shelter is often the primary key that will keep you from getting wet, and at the base level that starts with the clothing that you wear.
Clothing Choices
In the backpacking world there is a saying: “Cotton kills.” Once cotton gets wet, as clothes are known to do in outdoor weather, it completely loses all insulating properties. It does not regain them until it is completely dry which takes a long time. That is why when choosing outdoor clothing (hunting/fishing/hiking/etc.) you should avoid cotton at all costs.
 This:  Not This: 
Wool is the number one natural fiber that will still keep you warm despite being wet, but it has a reputation for being itchy. Merino wool and alpaca fleece are natural alternatives here. Both are incredibly soft, not itchy, and will still keep you warm when wet.
When it comes to synthetic fibers polyester blends and polypropylene are some of the best out there. Fleece, Gore-Tex, and DryLete make great choices in clothing fiber type.
Keeping the “wet makes you miserably cold” principle in mind, buy boots that are waterproof. There are plenty of manufacturers out there making high-quality boots that don’t look like waders which you’ll appreciate. It can be hard to have fun when you can’t feel your toes.
It’s also important to realize that up to 30% of the body’s heat is lost through the head and neck. This being the case, you should wear a hat at all times when out in cold conditions, and do what you can to keep your neck covered. Cold hands? Gloves definitely help, but are inferior to mittens for warmth. Gloves keep each finger isolated, as well as the warmth emitted from each finger. With mittens, the fingers are allowed to warm each other. I’ve used old military surplus ones in incredibly cold conditions and they work great.
How to Sleep in the Cold
When it comes to camping in winter weather buy a bag rated as cold as you can get. I know some people get worried about overkill here, but they seem to quit worrying about that when it’s 3 AM and their teeth are chattering. If you get overheated with an “overkill” bag, it’s a very easy fix. That isn’t the case in reverse.
Secondly, mummy bags are much better at retaining heat than your traditional sleeping bag. A mummy bag has a tapered foot at the bottom meaning that you will sleep with your feet close together (like a mummy. Get it?). Yeah, you won’t be able to move about, but the smaller interior area means that there is less space within the bag that your body has to heat up. You stay much warmer as a result.
  
I avoid down-filled bags, as once down gets wet it loses the majority of its insulating properties. It’s definitely not a filler that you want to take on a canoe trip with you. Plus, down tends to clump up meaning there are going to be spaces within your bag that are not properly insulating your body from the cold.
Don’t expect to not have a miserable night if you don’t have a sleeping pad of some sort as well. The ground is cold, and it is going to want to suck all of the heat out of you that it possibly can to make itself warmer. It’s like a warmth vampire. A sleeping pad between you and the ground keeps your body heat in your body and away from creepy dirt vampires. They also provide a thin layer of cushioning between you and the ground as well, so it’s a double win for you to use one.
Gadgets
Anytime I’m out in the woods in the cold, I always carry HotHands and a space blanket with me. (I’ve never understood why they’re called ‘space blankets’. Is it because they don’t take up a lot of space, or is it because it looks like something an astronaut would use?)

I’ve found both to be surprisingly effective. On one ham-mocking trip I took, I woke up at 3 AM shivering like crazy thanks to cold butt syndrome (It’s a thing. Look it up.) Thankfully, I had a space blanket with me. Within minutes of wrapping myself up like a big bean burrito, I could easily feel the warmth returning to my body, and I spent the rest of the night actually warm enough to sleep comfortably.
It’s hard to use a space blanket while you’re hiking though. When I’m on the move I use HotHands. I’ll activate one or two and place them within the inside pockets of my jacket. You actually have to keep these things migrating from pocket to pocket or you can end up cooking yourself.
Don’t solely rely on these two items to keep you warm. You can’t go out hiking in a cotton T-shirt, get drenched by surprise weather, and then expect fantastic results from a HotHands packet and a space blanket. Don’t be stupid. Both of these items will definitely help to keep you warm, but you don’t want to be fully relying upon them if you can help it.
Wrapping it Up
Above all else, use your head. If you have some serious qualms about what you’re getting yourself into because the weather is looking more iffy than normal, then don’t go. That’s how you avoid putting yourself in a survival situation to begin with. When you are out though, following the above advice will help to ensure that you not only stay as warm as possible, but safe from hypothermia and frostbite as well.

Hi  Friends,
    Our air temperature is in the low 20's F., right now.  
    A good, honest, friend named Greg L., sent this email/ message to me tonight and I enjoyed it so much that I felt that I needed to share it with my own readers, as I sometimes do.  
        If, in deed, Gold is going UP, UP, and Away,  Silver will do the same, at least to some extent, for other reasons.   I have heard 7 years ago that many say Silver might go up to $50 -- $200, and right now Silver is worth about $20., after you add in the tax and shipping charges.   Deal with MMX  --- MoneyMetalsExchange.com      
      In this article, 3 valuable explanations are given WHY it may be important to buy Silver Now !    I always do my research on-line, or in the library BEFORE I buy or invest in something, so I won't get "stung" or cheated, instead of learning the hard way --- when I was young and goofy....LOL.    My Dad also taught me many things when I was still at home on the farm, and I probably never thanked him enough.    I thought that I 'turned out, OK' so I used the same formula in raising my own kids  --- but that was just wrong headed, as I finally figured out later....  but I did try my best.   I guess that my 3- kids were just too wild, hard-headed and rebellious -- as the "apple never falls far from the tree..."    And "you can always tell a German --- but you cannot tell him much !"  Ha!   Also,  Father God loves all mankind and sacrificed His only begotten Son,  Yeshua,  Jesus Christ,  but the Father will only allow humans to enter Heaven 'if they are followers of Jesus !'    And this scenario COULD HAPPEN at any time, right now !   Or do you like to GAMBLE ???

As I told my wife,  Loretta,  for many folks,  History is a dull, lifeless, dry, boring subject,  but so many people lose out on many important points and sound reasoning,  truths, if they flunk that subject in school and afterward !   Because History is always REPEATED.   Like I have said before so many times,   'History always repeats itself,'  and the KJV Bible is PURE HISTORY !  Read now --- or pay later,  my friends.    Hell is not an option.    Hell is like the "Roach Motel,"  as people check in -- but they never check out.  
       Let us just understand one thing.... please,  If President Donald Trump doesn't take the  reins of our economy  soon ---  America will certainly collapse  and do a 'slow burn' --- an economic Melt Down !   But it just so happens that "SOMETHING BIG" is about to happen, IMHO, ON OR BEFORE,  January 1st, 2018.   But that is another true story for a different blog post.   Or who knows if I will even 'let the cat out of the bag ??'      Some of my close friends are more poorer than I am, so they have SOME excuse, of sort.    But the rest of the world will always find some lame excuse why not to invest in time, as always happens.  And that's life.

Warm Regards,

3 Great Reasons Preppers Should Buy Silver

preppers buy silver

Before the fall of the Roman Empire there were massive amounts of inflation.  This was due to the fact that the government had been debasing the precious metals.  It had gotten to the point where silver coins were truly bronze coins dipped in a silver coating.
This was the first form of fiat currency.  As the inflation increased the people of the empire were demanded to work more and pay higher taxes.  However, those who had held on to the pure gold and silver coins were able to fight off inflation.
Eventually the Roman Empire collapsed because it could no longer sustain itself and pay the debts that it owed.  Other countries began to invade the empire to gather spoils in order to pay off their debts.  Unfortunately it was citizens of the empire who truly suffered from starvation and disease from these wars.  Only those who were able to fight off inflation with pure gold and silver thrived during this time.
In many subsequent financial disasters throughout time gold and silver were used as a safe guard.  Yet today many of us place more value in a paper dollar that takes 4 cents to print.  There used to be a gold standard behind the dollar but that is no longer true.  The dollar is only worth the value that the government places on it.
Just like Rome all subsequent fiat currencies faced the same ill fate.  There has never been a fiat currency to truly prevail.  We must look back on history to get an understanding of our future.  There will be another collapse of the fiat currency.  So we must prepare.
Silver is considered the poor man’s gold.  You are able to purchase more amounts of silver than you can with gold.  However, there is a limited supply.  This is why it is called a precious metal.  Historically there is 12 to 15 ounces of silver produced to every ounce of gold.
All though there may be more silver produced there is a growing demand for silver.  Silver is used to produce multiple things including:
  • Cellphones
  • Cameras
  • Laptops
  • Mirrors
  • Monitors
  • It also has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of any element
We cannot continue to produce unlimited amounts of products using silver.  Research has even shown that the actual supply of silver is rapidly decreasing.  As the supply decreases with a steady demand there will be a higher price point that comes along with it.
Therefore as a prepper we must buy precious metals especially silver as a financial insurance against a failing economy and potential economic collapse.  The financial crisis of 2001 and 2008 is nothing like the Great Depression that we could possibly face again.

3 Great Reasons Preppers Should Buy Silver

  1. Eventual collapse of the fiat currency system
As in the story of how the great Roman Empire fell due to a collapse of the fiat currency system we will inevitably face the same fate.  Many Romans thought they were simply too great to fail.  Our mindset is the same today.
Only those who held pure gold and silver coins were able to fight off inflation during that time.  Here is a chart below that shows how silver consistently keeps up with inflation.
SilverPriceFarFromAnyInflationAdjustedLevel
During a collapse or financial crisis banks will either limit withdrawals or even forbid you from withdrawing your own money from the bank.  This happened in Greece in 2015.  Military soldiers were even stationed around the banks to protect them.  We also saw this in the economic collapse of Argentina.
Silver coins especially those that are minted can be quickly liquidated.  In the time of an emergency they can be melted down in exchange of the relevant price.  Many stores that will no longer accept fiat currency during a collapse will quickly accept silver instead.
Buying silver won’t be an investment that will get you rich quickly.  It is meant to be a safe guard and financial insurance.  However, during a collapse you can expect the price of precious metals to exponentially increase.
  1. The silver supply is decreasing
As I mentioned earlier, silver is used to produce multiple products.  Many companies such as Apple depend on silver to produce their monitors for their highly popular iPads.  If huge companies like Apple begin to lose access to something that causes them to lose profits then chaos will ensue.  They will of course drive the price of their products higher.
Silver is a precious metal.  Eventually the supply will dwindle.  Again this will cause the price of silver to sky rocket.  On top of that you have countries like China and Russia who are buying up huge supplies of these precious metals causing the supply to decrease even more rapidly.
This is why it is important to buy silver now before the prices are too expensive.  You will want to have your own supply just like any of your other preps.  Yes, you may have enough food to last you a year.  But what happens if you are robbed?  What happens if you need to buy some other important supplies during this time?  You will want to have some sort of currency as a backup.  As the saying goes, “you want to have backups to your backups.”
  1. Inevitable Price Correction
Not only is there a decreasing supply of silver on the market but there is price manipulation that is currently happening in the market as well.  Historically you were able to purchase 12 to 15 ounces of silver for the price of 1 ounce of gold.  However, there you can now purchase unheard of amounts of silver.  Currently you can purchase around 50 to 70 ounces of silver for the price of an ounce of gold.
Historically these prices have always adjusted themselves.  For some reason speculators are setting these unheard prices.  Eventually the market will adjust themselves.  This means that the price of silver will increase exponentially.  At that point it may be too expensive to even purchase silver.
The Type of Silver You Should Buy
The type of silver that you purchase will be dependent upon the type of buyer that you are.  As a prepper I recommend buying minted silver coins first.  This is because minted silver coins can be easily liquidated in an emergency.  They have a set price on them which means they can be used at stores to purchase items.
The minted coins such as the United States Silver Eagle will be trusted as real silver as compared to silver rounds or unrecognized mintage.  I started off buying minted Silver Eagles.  Regardless of what happens in the economy the coin will always be worth it’s weight in silver.
Junk coins are the next best option.  Although they are not 100% silver they do have about 90% silver.  Junk coins are coins that were produced before 1965.  In the event that there is an economic collapse junk coins will generally be accepted because they are widely recognized for their silver content.
Generic silver rounds are another great option.  However, without mintage it may be more challenging to liquidate than minted coins.  If you do get silver rounds I would recommend purchasing popular types of silver rounds such as the Buffalo.
The Best Time to Buy
The best time to purchase precious metals are when it is the cheapest of course.  At the time of this writing the silver to gold ratio is at a ridiculous 70 to 1.  That means that you can purchase 70 ounces of silver for the price of 1 ounce of gold.  This is why it is prime time to purchase silver.
Eventually the difference will be reconciled.  At that time it will be impossible to purchase huge amounts of silver.
Also, if you look at the state of our economy you can tell that it is time to purchase silver.  Inflation is increasing at astronomical amounts.  Millions of people are without jobs.  These are all signs of a looming financial crisis or economic collapse.
If you can’t afford to purchase huge amounts of silver I would recommend purchase at least 1 coin a week from SD Bullion.  They have no purchase minimum unlike many other stores.  They update their pricing to reflect the price of the market every couple of minutes.
You could purchase at local coin stores but I have noticed that they charge huge premiums on coins.  The most that you want to pay on a premium for minted coins is about $3 or $4.  I’ve seen local coin shops charge $6 to $7.
Now yes you will have to pay for shipping.  However, SD Bullion charges a flat rate of $7.77.  It isn’t dependent upon how much you buy.  So this means that you can purchase more silver or bullion and spend less on shipping as compared to other stores.
Leave a comment below if you have any questions about buying silver or about SD Bullion.  I have been purchasing bullion through them for quite a well.  So I am familiar with their products and services.

Foreword in French:

Bonjour les amis en France,
comment est la météo dans votre terre/ pays, aujourd'hui ? C'est brumeux et enneigé où je vis, dans le nord de la péninsule du nord du Michigan, USA, et je me suis aventuré dehors pour obtenir une coupe ce matin, et qui a de moi pendant un mois et plus. Je veux être bien entretenues et l'assiette si je peux, donc ma jolie femme n'est pas honte de moi en public.
Mais aujourd'hui je parle d'une vieille, blessants, maladie, appelée la "Mort Noire", qui a refait surface à nouveau, mais cette fois-ci, nous sommes limités pour une guérison parce que cette horrible maladie n'a pas répondu à nos médicaments modernes et Anti-Biotics ! ! Personnes en France pourraient se souvenir de cette vieille maladie, livres d'histoire, il y a des siècles en arrière. Je ne voudrais pas que la maladie sur mon pire ennemi... désolé.
Oui, quand nous sommes malades ou mourants, nous avons tendance à saisir à pailles, aussi prier et supplier Dieu le Père - l'Éternel pour la miséricorde et le confort. Mieux vaut être du côté de Dieu dès le début de l'étude et sa Sainte Parole, la Bible KJV. L'enfer est un très mauvais, blessants place --- que je ne veux jamais voir.
Pouvez-vous honnêtement dire que "Vous avez le Saint-esprit en vous ?' Je n'aurais jamais bien, sans lui.... le H.S., un "don gratuit du Père, Dieu."
Cordialement,

Hi  Friends,
    'Tis the season to spend more than our budgets allow, on things and gifts for those we care about -- who don't really need nor want....  LOL !   But,  I see nothing wrong with families getting together for a great meal, or just a simple, informal meal !   Having said all that,  Thanksgiving time and family reunions can also cause stressed out people who are forced to tolerate each other, as they make fun, throw barbs and sidewinders at other relatives and friends,  and that is painful.   I would caution and advise:   "Been there --- done that, too."   But why not pray first and then TRY HARDER to be nice to everyone ? ?     "The LORD will give strength unto his people;   the LORD will bless his people with peace."  ---Psalm 29: 11.  
      I have the habit of periodically checking myself to see that I don't "drift" far from the KJV Bible [or the NASB] and Father God, too much,  because I once got caught up in false religion and strayed to far after I got home from the war in South East Asia.....     I can only WISH that I was 'raised with the KJV Bible when I was young...'  instead of having to learn it after I was in my mid-40's !   ...Duh.   Yet, the Heavenly Father--Yahweh, KNEW that I would be His follower and servant BEFORE I WAS BORN !!   What else should I believe after I was saved from death so many times...  AFTER I toured combat in Vietnam:  68-70 ??   Ha!  Now that severe injuries have crippled my old body, and taken the 'wind from my sails,' I have slowed down and relaxing a bit more.    "O LORD my God,  I cried unto thee,  and thou hast healed me."   --- Psalm 30: 2.  KJV Bible.   
     And I may have confided that most of my  younger life --- I prayed that the Lord might confer upon me,  "Balance" and 'Common Sense.'   Don't get the "Herd Mentality" and run wild as wild groups of animals in Africa do !   With the 'trash, false, News' loves to manipulate Americans so much in these last days --- but their punishment shall also come, soon enough.   The One World Gov't and World Elite OWNS them, too.   I would caution to 'be on God's side,' and take the  BALANCED Approach.   

One balanced gentleman who writes a weekly piece that is certainly balanced, is:   Hal  Lindsey,  and I never mess his writings.   I also 'invest in'  Bible Tracts, Inc.,  and I send them a humble amount of money to further their fine, brave work in so many distant lands that are really dangerous,  and they send me more Bible Tracts, to hand out to everyone I run into --- as I always carry a few in my wallet.  

Have a great day!

Warm Regards,

November 17th, 2017
In the 14th century, the bubonic plague -- or Black Death, as it is known in history -- wiped out 60% of the entire population of Europe.

Modern medicine, particularly antibiotics, effectively defeated bubonic plague and relegated it to occasional, relatively minor outbreaks.

Well, the Black Death is back.

Several nations are once again experiencing outbreaks of bubonic plague. This outbreak began in Madagascar, an island off the east coast of Africa.

It has now spread to at least ten African nations. The death toll, thus far, is in the hundreds. Thousands have been infected, including many healthcare workers.

With the ready availability of antibiotics and the quick response of the world's medical community, a massive bubonic plague outbreak seems unlikely. But no one knows. After all, Jesus predicted that in the time just before His return, the world would see an alarming increase in "pestilences." And bubonic plague can certainly be classified as a pestilence.

But I think we're facing an even greater problem: antibiotic-resistant diseases.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in the United States alone, approximately two million people each year become infected with bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics. The CDC estimates that 23,000 die from those infections each year.

Sadly, this may be only the beginning. Colistin is often referred to as "the antibiotic of last resort." It's the powerful, last-gasp alternative reserved for those cases that don't respond to anything else.

According to The Guardian of London, "Scientists attending a recent meeting of the American Society for Microbiology reported... that bacteria containing a gene... which confers resistance to the antibiotic colistin... had spread round the world at an alarming rate since its original discovery 18 months earlier."

It has gotten so bad that England's Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies recently told a conference, "The world is facing an antibiotic apocalypse."

Precisely as Jesus warned for these days in which we are living.

Wow, strange things are happening in the Middle East.

After accepting Hezbollah as a "partner" in Lebanon's government during the past year, Saad Hariri, the Prime Minister of Lebanon, flew to Saudi Arabia and briefly disappeared. Last week, he appeared on Saudi television and announced his resignation as Prime Minister of Lebanon.

Hariri blamed Hezbollah, which is internationally recognized as a terror group, and its master, Iran, which is internationally recognized as the greatest state sponsor of terrorism. He said he feared for his life.

Even now, Hariri insists he is not being detained against his will. But Lebanon -- and Hezbollah -- accuse the Saudis of "kidnapping" their Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, the Houthis of Yemen launched a ballistic missile at Saudi Arabia. The Saudi air force intercepted it and destroyed it mid-flight.

The Houthis are a radical Yemeni group funded by Iran -- which also founded and funds Hezbollah.

Since Iran funds the Houthis and supplied the missile that was fired at Saudi Arabia, and since Hezbollah is, likewise, a proxy of Iran and is a full partner in Lebanon's official government, the Saudis have drawn an interesting conclusion.

Saudi Arabia is accusing Lebanon of committing an "act of war" against it.

So the Saudis accuse Lebanon of an "act of war" and the Lebanese accuse the Saudis of kidnapping their Prime Minister. The whole affair has the Middle East on edge.

Some analysts believe the Saudis accuse the nation of Lebanon of this aggression in order to fan sectarian conflict in Lebanon. The thinking is that if the Saudis can cause the 40% of Lebanon's population that is Christian, and the 30% that is Sunni Muslim (as opposed to Shi'ite Muslim like Hezbollah and Iran) to rise up against Hezbollah, they may be able to stop the takeover of Lebanon by Iran.

The Saudis may be setting the stage for a possible intervention in Lebanon. If that happens, Iran won't respond nicely and the region could explode.

The human suffering caused by the Syrian civil war (in which Iran and Hezbollah are allies of Assad), has been surprising and tragic. It has changed the character of the Middle East and, because of the mass "refugee" migration, of Europe.

But it may be just the beginning.

Finally, as we prepare to celebrate this Thanksgiving season, I want to share with you why I think it's more important than ever to understand the power of praise in thanksgiving to God. Our nation faces real and present dangers. As I report weekly on "The Hal Lindsey Report," the threats are mounting and the odds appear to be impossible. But it's precisely at those moments of darkness that the power of praise and gratitude to God can be our pathway to victory.

Don't miss this week's Report on TBN, Daystar, CPM Network, various local stations, www.hallindsey.com or www.hischannel.com. Check your local listings.

Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.


God Bless,

Hal Lindsey

Michigan House-- "Yes,' to Lawful Carry.

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

tschuckman@aol.com

Foreword in Danish:

Hej Danske mennesker,
den sidste uge af november har netop rullet om en kanon kugle af sted som skudt ud af en kanon ! Vi har haft så travlt med at få alle vores juridiske papirer udfyldes og taking care of business, og nu vinteren står for døren. Men når det så sjovt er også rart. Vi vil snart være på udkig efter en kirke, hjem og møde nye folk, og jeg skulle tiltræde en Krigsveteran serviceafdeling for at få nye venner med noget tilfælles.
Jeg har også en hemmelig følelse af at noget kunne ske med vores finansielle/ penge situation i USA.... hummmmm. Vær altid forberedt --- men også sætte din lid til Herren, Fader Gud - Yahweh. Jeg synes, det er dejligt og sjovt at gnubbe albuer-- mødes med andre med samme kristne, bibelske tro og tilbede sammen. Jeg holder især meget af at læse, studere og memorere salmer og ordsprog i bibelen - Bibelen.
Hvordan kan så mange mennesker siger, at de er på vej til himlen, når de ikke engang kender sindelag, Jesus og Faderen Yahweh ?? Tiden er knap, og når det er slut, vil det være for sent at fine ud og kender folk, især Fader Gud. Sikke en skam at bliver. Vil vi fortælle ham, at vi havde for travlt med at se på vores tv eller drikke for meget ?

Hi  Friends,
   Ha!  We can dream, too....  LOL !   And that is because we are in conflict with powerful enemies who hate America and are trying their hardest to undermine our country and pull it down !  
       I have been told/ advised many times never to mix 'religion with politics,'  but I am quite certain that everything is related, and Satan is still, 'the god of this world.'    ---- See,  2nd Corinthians 4: 4.
       
Who Is Satan?: What Does the Bible Say About the Devil?
www.godandscience.org/doctrine/who_is_satan.html
The Bible says that Satan was created by God as a cherub, the most powerful of God's angelic beings. Some time after his creation and before the creation of mankind,5 Satan rebelled against God and took one third of the angels (now referred to as demons) with him into rebellion.6.

       If you read my blog post often enough,  you already know all of that stuff, and it's very true and provable.   I would wager that half the humans on Earth DO NOT KNOW THAT...     And what a person doesn't know can and will hurt and kill him or her !!
        Why not be better educated and alert,  brothers ?   Reading and understanding the KJV Bible,  or the NASB, will be a solid education in itself !  First off,  we probably would not make so many mistakes, or chase after the wrong, harmful things in life --- saving us so many heart aches and pains,  plus hills of hard earned money.   Money should be looked  upon as a "slave,"  to pay the bills, buy a house, food and protection, etc.   Money gives us the OPTION to get out of harm's way, and move to a more clean, less violent environment.   Money can give us a good chance to attend a good, better college, so that we can get better employment in a safer place, too  $$$$.   Just like in Hurricane  Katrina, in New Orleans, when so many poor people were stuck in their homes without good transportation to higher ground and safety.... while the local Gov't fled to different States.... like the corrupt mayor.   7 years ago, I chose to move to a different State that is colder in the Winter time,  but wished I would have KEPT MY OLD HOUSE in Union Grove, Wisconsin, that would have provided a "Safety Net," just in case something happened to me, negatively.  
        But now with a more violent scenario in the huge cities further South,  U.P. here might actually prove to be "safer."   Maybe I will buy another house in the Spring time....   but I am really depending on Father God--Yahweh, to help and sort things out.  
        Lately,  reading the Book of Psalms has had a positive, peaceful, effect on me, so I want to continue in that area of interest.   And in the Winter time, many hard working Christians of Germanic/ Nordic descent use the 'inside time' to create beautiful furniture, just like in our own frontier times when the snow is very deep, with harsh, windy air temps.  

         I just noticed on TV, and in the News/ InterNet,  that the Dims [sic] who love to launch all the "Witch Hunts" on Conservative  running Senators, are also being discovered as sexual perverts/  sex offenders, along with nasty pictures for documentation and proof, such as Creepy Vice President, 'Uncle Joe' Biden' who loves to fondle children and young ladies,  also Senator Al Franken, and past Prez  'Slick Willy,' Clinton ! !    I don't think that those perverts have much of a forum/ platform.    But we shall all be Judged for all of our sins at the Great Throne of Justice some day,  and I think,  soon.   However,  those real, humble, Christians who have totally accepted Jesus Christ into their hearts,   shall be forgiven.   I will bet,  that all of my serious readers, will be in that number...."when the Saints go marching in..."   
         The fine people from Denmark have returned to reading my humble blog, again, so that is encouraging to me !   From time to time, I show the standard of different countries and people who ramp up statistics of who honestly like to read my stuff.  
        I might even get a haircut, tomorrow.   But right now I want to share one of my favorite verses of the Psalms:

          "Draw me not away with the wicked,  and with the workers of iniquity,  which speak peace to their neighbors,  but mischief is in their hearts.  4,  Give them according to their deeds,  and according to their wickedness or their endeavors:   give them after the work of their hands;  render to them their desert,:   ----Psalms 28:  3-4.  

    "O Lord my God,  I cried unto thee,  and thou hast healed me."  --- Psalms 30: 2.

    Warm Regards,

    Michigan House says “Yes” to Constitutional Carry!

    In some states, like New York, it is illegal to even own a gun. Which is odd to me because, hello? Constitutional rights!! However, in most states, citizens are able to open carry or simply required to obtain a concealed carry license in order to carry concealed.
    I, myself, have my carry license. I refuse to be a victim, and I do not particularly like to open carry because that officially makes you an immediate target to a criminal with a weapon.
    The concept of constitutional carry, or being able to legally conceal carry without a permit, is sweeping the nation. More and more states are considering the legislature, and the Michigan House just passed a bill for it.

    House bills 4416 through 4419 strike the requirement that a Michigander have a license to carry a concealed weapons. People banned from possessing firearms would be banned from carrying them as well. The bills also reduce penalties for certain infractions relating to carrying a pistol without proper identification or disclosure as well.
    Rep. Michele Hoitenga, R-Manton, is a sponsor of one of the bills. She and other sponsors refer to the bills as “constitutional carry” in reference to the second amendment enshrining the right to bear arms.
    Hoitenga stated, “People who can legally own a gun should have every right to carry a concealed pistol without jumping through bureaucratic hoops and landing on a list.”
    Of course there will ALWAYS be a leftist rebuttal to anything constitutional. Democratic Rep. Jewell Jones, threw in a ridiculous question, seeping with victimhood. He asked, “What about the young black and brown men, men like me, who are killed every day?”
