'Suffocating Commercialism.'

Tom's Journal.

Season's Greeting and Blessings to all who read this Web Site !
     Hal Lindsey has a very special way of getting the great work of sharing the finer point of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I am so glad and happy to share his works with all who read my humble colunm.   I also shope that most of my email friends will start getting his news personally.  It's free, of course.  
      U.P. so far North in America the weather is surely turning COLD and icy!   The News warns us when the streets and highways get slippery, so we don't have a traffic accident.   And I don't need to fall on my back this year, either!   
     I had such a terrible pain in my Right hip and lower back lately, and forced to visit the local VAMC to get X-rayed, but the ER doctor seems to think that it's old age and Arthritis, so we hope that is all.   I need to see a Chiropractor soon.        We also bought a 15 pound turkey at the local store today and thawing the bird out even now and just might eat it early or save some for Christmas time.  I am so happy and grateful to have a loving wife here with me --- after being away dduring Christmas time and family thru the years, serving in the Army ddduring 2 long years in Vietnam:  68-60, as most of you good people remember, Huey Helicopter 'door gunner.'   I also miss my children now as one has passed away, Andy, my dear son.   I hope to meet him again some day at a "special place set aside by our Lord, Jesus Christ."   

It's not some false hope or fairy tale that we Christians believe in...

  1. Berean Literal Bible Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not being seen. New American Standard Bible Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. King James Bible Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Christian Standard Bible
  2. HEBREWS 11:1 KJV "Now faith is the substance of things ...
    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the euidence of things not seen. - King James Version (1611) - View 1611 Bible Scan Now faith is the assurance of {things} hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 
  3. However there are many false religions in the world that lead men and women away and draw their 'believers' away with empty promises, lies, from STD...  Satan the Devil.  Beware and study the KJV Bible daily until you know the truth of the Bible!  In many cases the time of Rapture will be soon, or too soon for many folks.  Help one another in this manner by sharing what you aready know, dear friends.   Just reading the book of Romans, 
  4. first Chapter will explain how the Lord God feels about homosexuality, etc., and I well know I am inviting danger and harm to myself just for mentioning this very subject !!   But I am merely sharing something that I have read many times in the KJV Bible, friends, hoping to clear up any misunderstanding that many might have, and I like to help others IF I can.
  5.   But if I must die --- I know that my Lord Jesus will Save and Resurrect me to life anew.  And really with all the pain I suffer right now -- do I really want to languish longer in agony and pain?  Please pray for me and my wife, Loretta, too.   Thanks.
  Warm Love and Army Hugs,
Tommy Schuckman

For many of us, Christmas is our favorite time of the year. But each year it grows more difficult to navigate the suffocating commercialism and secularization of the season to arrive at the genuine reason for the celebration: the incarnation of God as a human to become the sacrifice for our sins and make possible our reconciliation to God.

I'm afraid we've lost our sense of wonderment at the unfathomable miracles that made possible the advent of our Savior.

One of those miracles was the coming of the magi to worship the child. As is our tradition on this program, I will examine the story of those mysterious 'wise men' who traveled so far to worship the new 'King of the Jews.' Who were they? How did they know to watch for a sign in the heavens? How long did they wait for that sign? Where did they come from? (Hint: It's a land where, 20 centuries later, the followers of the Christ child are suffering tremendous persecution and martyrdom.) Why did gentiles come to worship the King of the Jews? How did God use them to preserve the Messiah's life? You'll learn the answers to all of these questions and more this week when I discuss "The Mystery of the Magi."

I think it will rekindle in you an appreciation of the complexity of God's plan to redeem His creation through His own sacrifice. Christmas is a celebration of that overwhelming and unsearchable love.

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

All of us at The Hal Lindsey Report and Hal Lindsey Website Ministries wish you a wonderful and blessed Christmas.

Never forget why we celebrate and Who we honor at this time of the year.

Also, remember to pray for all of the members of our armed forces who are standing guard for our nation around the world. Pray, too, for our local first-responders -- those men and women who stand ready 24 hours a day to protect and rescue us. This is a lonely time to be away from home and the ones they love. Pray that the Holy Spirit will strengthen, encourage, and protect them and make them to feel His presence in a special way during this holy season.

Merry Christmas, y'all!
God Bless,

Hal Lindsey
