The "City of Peace."

Tom's Journal.

Foreword in Russian: 

как я хотел бы Германии и Швеции, эти два места являются просто не принимая никаких позитивных действий против жестокой, исламских стран и террористические группы, которые продолжают убивать, убийства, пытки, изнасилования и совершения геноцида против всех христиан на Ближнем Востоке и в других местах. Папа не много об этом, либо ! Рассмотреть этот вопрос и вы найдете, что папа Иоанн Павел II является социалистической и Fiber Optic сторонником... извините, ребята. Из того, что я прочитал, Россия позволяет свободу для истинных христиан на практике их веры и доверия в Христа, и поэтому я рад, что !
Из чтения Библии высокие духовные качества имеют свои границы часто мы христиане знают и понимают, что насилия и террора в мире будет только увеличиваться, и это будет нашей общей финансовой и валютной ситуации. Я предлагаю инвестиции в чистого серебра, прямо сейчас, если вы можете и начать стоковая продовольствия и чистой питьевой воды в случае возникновения чрезвычайных ситуаций, или войны. Я не верю, что американский народ ненависти России, и наоборот.
Что касается теплого,

What V.P.   Mike Pence jus recently said:
In language stronger than we’ve heard from the U.S. State Department, Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that the Islamic State terrorist group has committed atrocities – up to and including genocide – against Christians living in the Middle East. Speaking at a summit on Christian persecution put on by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association, the former Indiana governor said it was time for the world to wake up to what was really going on in Egypt and elsewhere.
“Practitioners of terror harbor a special hatred for the followers of Christ and none more so than the barbarians known as ISIS,” Pence said. “That brutal regime shows a savagery frankly unseen in the Middle East since the Middle Ages, and I believe ISIS is guilty of nothing short of genocide against people of the Christian faith, and it is time the world called it by name.
“The reality is across the wide world, the Christian faith is under siege,” he continued. “Throughout the world, no people of faith today face greater hostility or hatred than followers of Christ.”
Pence noted that Islamic terrorists often capitalize on Christian holidays to spread their message of violence and bloodshed.
“The Christian communities where the message of our Lord was first uttered and embraced today though, are often the targets of unspeakable atrocity,” Pence said. “In Egypt just recently, we saw bombs explode in churches in the very midst of the celebration at Palm Sunday. A day of hope was transformed into tragedy.

“In Iraq, at the hands of extremists, we’ve actually seen monasteries demolished, priests and monks beheaded, and the two millennia-old Christian tradition in Mosul virtually extinguished over night,” he said. “In Syria, we see ancient communities burned to the ground. We see believers tortured for confessing Christ and women and children sold into the most terrible form of human slavery.”
Pence said that after the previous administration’s blatant unwillingness to acknowledge either the true perpetrators nor the true victims of terrorism, President Trump was turning the page.
“Donald Trump sees these crimes for what they are: vile acts of persecution animated by hatred, hatred for the gospel of Christ,” said Pence. “And so too does the president know those who perpetrate these crimes. They are the embodiment of evil in our times, and he calls them by name – radical Islamic terrorists.”
To Christians, conservatives, and, really, anyone who has a proper understanding of what’s happening in the world, these words could not be more refreshing. If they are followed by the required action, the time for ISIS and their ilk to thrive and spread could be coming to an end.

Good Day,  Friends and Gentle Readers,
     I have had a lot on my plate to consider these last few weeks with a new cause to be anxious,  with a cardiac 'flutter.'   So,  now the 'doctors' want to give me "rat poison" to thin my blood, and I need to diet harder, for sure !   I ate 25 hot peppers with my lunch at my favorite Mexican place in a near by town, and they were delicious, and also healthy for me !  
       It's also good for me to bury the hatchet and forgive all those who have offended and tried to hurt me  --- just as I want the same from them, now when I am older and closer to death or Rapture.  
But I remember last year that I was dating a 'lady' from near, Escanaba, MI.,  who terminated her short relationship with me because she said that I was too lazy and inactive to suit her... Ha!   And all the time, my biggest challenge was heart disease that slowed me down.   Heck,  I worked very hard ALL OF MY LIFE and did well !   I always took her out to eat the finest food and gave her many valuable things including cash.    I just want to let people know that I am NOT a LAZY, OLD, MAN,  but at the age of 68,  I am starting to fall apart,  sorry.   During my long life,  I was super active, and also did many dangerous things, and got into some serious accidents that would have killed the average male !   I was a power lifter most of my adult life, played guitar, taught Finance, the KJV BIBLE, was a welder, carpenter, wood carver, inventor, loved an rode motorcycles all of my adult life, and even spent 2 lovely years in Vietnam as a Huey Helicopter, "Door gunner."  Worked 30.5 years at Chrysler in Kenosha, WI, now with good pension, and now I drive a nice, Ram 4 by 4 truck.   That is just a little glimpse of my former life.  
     My hobby now is visiting, writing, posting a Christian based Blog, on-line, and sharing the Gospel with everyone I meet, also using great Bible Tracts to augment my ministry of sorts.   All I am saying is that I HAD a very active life, and would still be 'pumping iron' at the Gym because I love that stuff, if I were not so disabled at this point in my life.   And that is also the reason why I got fat.   Other than that, I know that I am a sinner, and ask forgiveness every morning and night.  But all you guys  who read my humble blog already know all of this stuff.    All I am saying is,  we lose certain things, muscles and abilities when we grow old.   The Bible tells us that it is a wise person who saves up/  also invests SOME of his/ her money into wise enterprises, for retirement and emergencies.   But why go thru all this preparation if you don't also make sure that you have Jesus and the Holy Spirit in your heart ??   And we ought to MEMORIZE special Bible verses like:   Romans 10: 9,  John 14: 27,  and John 14: 2.,  etc.   Write them down on paper and carry that paper with you all day, and test yourself until you can rattle them off really well !   You won't ever be sorry,  folks.  

Well,   I don't want to talk, 'doom and gloom' today,  but if for some reason I just quit posting my blog for a while,  maybe it's my time to "Go Home to the Lord."   I have seen so many good, younger men die long before I sensed any danger... and it was a shock to everyone,  how fast and quickly a human being can just pass away, or never wake up.   And when that time comes,  we all want to be in good standing with the Lord.   In America,  it's usually very easy to tell just WHO is a real Christian !    They are NOT the ones protesting, burning down other peoples'  houses, looting all the stores, overturning police cars and killing people !!   Ha!   Go figure, you run with that kind of crowd ?   Actually,  I doubt that any of my friends or readers do that kind of stuff.

Warm Regards,
Thomas G Schuckman

----Actually,  I still look pretty much like these 2 pictures below,  NOW, on May 19th,  2017.


May 19th, 2017
As President Trump prepares for his first trip abroad, which will include a potentially historic visit to Jerusalem next week, I thought it might be instructive to revisit a program I presented a few years ago. In it, I examine Jerusalem's history, its role in end-times prophecy, and some of the challenges Israel faces in the days ahead.

One of the recurring themes of the last days, as foretold by the Hebrew prophets and confirmed by the Book of Revelation, is the international isolation of Israel.

In fact, the prophet Zechariah says that, eventually, all of the nations of the world will gather together against Israel. They'll do so over the issue of who controls Jerusalem.

In its 3,000 year history, Jerusalem, which, ironically, means "City of Peace," has been destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, and attacked 52 times. Just since the nation's rebirth in 1948, Jerusalem has felt the impact of four major wars. Why? It has none of the usual assets that cause great cities to rise. It has no seaport, no natural wealth, no particular strategic military value. The ancient trade routes from Egypt to Assyria, Babylon, and Persia ran north and south along the plateau of Jordan, bypassing Jerusalem to the east.

During centuries of occupation by the Muslims, Jerusalem was a dusty, backwater city so unimportant that it never even achieved the status of a regional or provincial capital. Yet, despite 2,000 years of mediocrity and desolation, Jerusalem is now the most contended-for city on the face of the earth.

Ominously, Zechariah predicted that the thought of possessing Jerusalem would so "intoxicate" the nations of the world, that in the last days they would go to war over it. He also described the city as such a "burdensome stone," that any nation that tried to solve the dilemma would be "cut in pieces."

The British found themselves charged with settling the Jerusalem question in 1917. Thirty years later, the British Empire fell apart. Jimmy Carter and Anwar Sadat took on the challenge of Jerusalem. One lost his presidency, the other his life. Bill Clinton led the United States into the fray with the Oslo Accords in 1993. George W. Bush and Barack Obama stuck to the plan. Nearly twenty years later, the U.S. economy is in shambles, our military is worn and tattered, our people exhausted and divided, and our foreign policy is in absolute disarray. And Israel, which did not even exist from Zechariah's day until 69 years ago, is more isolated and hated than ever.

A few short years ago, South Africa's Trade Ministry announced that it will not allow goods manufactured in Judea and Samaria and labeled "Made in Israel," to be sold in South Africa. Why? Because its leaders say that Judea and Samaria are "occupied" by Israel. They only recognize the "1948 borders as delineated by the United Nations." Never mind that there are no such thing as "1948 borders... delineated by the United Nations."

Even Judaism is finding itself increasingly embattled throughout the world. In Bavaria, a rabbi faced court charges for performing a circumcision. Despite the fact that male circumcision is a 4,000 year-old practice of Judaism (1,800 years in Germany), it has been banned in hospitals in Austria and Switzerland. Denmark and Norway introduced similar legislation. Even San Francisco tried to ban it. Other nations have already outlawed certain kosher animal-slaughter practices.

Oddly, while many European nations are seeking to ban Judaic and kosher practices, they see nothing wrong with allowing Muslims to establish "Sharia Law courts" to adjudicate civil matters among Muslims. Great Britain has 85 such courts. Though obviously not empowered to enforce a full range of punishments in European nations -- yet -- Sharia law is an undeniably barbaric system. Beyond the well-known customs of stoning to death homosexuals and those accused of sexual infidelity, cutting off the hands and/or feet of thieves, and "honor killing" one's own family members if they've "disgraced" the family, accepted Sharia Law punishment can still be quite brutal.

In Saudi Arabia, a 39 year-old Egyptian mother of two who got entangled in a business-deal-gone-bad with a Saudi princess, was sentenced to 2 years in prison and 500 lashes. She received 5 lashes per week for two years. Activists say she suffered irreparable damage to her body and psyche. But, on the positive side, this is Sharia - not Judaic - law and she is, after all, just a woman.

Please forgive the sarcasm. If it weren't so brutally pathetic and true, what passes today for worldly wisdom regarding Islam is like a bad script for a "Dumb and Dumber" movie sequel.

Folks, even if these events didn't fit in to so many of the prophets' descriptions of the last days, the fact that they perfectly embody the Apostle Paul's prediction that in the last days man would not be able to think even in his own best interest, should be enough to let us know we're there.

And in the days to come, we will see Israel and the Jews isolated more and more by the nations of the world. Until one day, they will stand absolutely alone against the world. Only the Messiah will be on their side. But that will be enough.

Please, make plans not to be here for that moment. Accept the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ and make your reservation for the great escape that will save all believers from those dreadful days.
