God's Timeline.

Tom's Journal.

Dear Friends,
   We have a special subject matter here that is near and dear to my heart of hearts!  While I am not abscessed with this subject [because obsession's are considered unbalanced] it is ever on my mind every day, it seems.  The Rapture means that we don't have to suffer DEATH!  But on the other hand with this coronavirus from China all over, death might come knocking on my door so that I shall die from that dreaded respiratory virus.  I take all of my herbs and try to cut down on food intake, etc.  
     But when we understand the Bible teaching of death as a Christian, at least we have that hope and trust in God's Word, that we shall be resurrected to heavenly life in a place that is so much better than the life we have right now on earth.  Yet, the people who are "Left Behind" who later become Christians will be alive again on earth at the appropriate time and place, as promised.  Go figure, if the people in heaven serve with Christ as kings and priests --- whom are they helping?  They will help the people on the 'New Earth' come to full perfection!  You see, the original PURPOSE of Father God will still, eventually be fulfilled.  A perfect, beautiful earth filled with perfect, happy, humans who are true worshipers of God Almighty...  just like it SHOULD have been in the first  Paradise before Eve took and ate the forbidden fruit... and Adam was no better and he did sin deliberately, with full knowledge.  

I will tell you one thing:   We are supposed to have a beautiful, sunny, Saturday with air temps at 70 degrees F. !  I will be in our high fenced back yard getting the sun all over me.  The sun heals my body and mind, for some reason and I feel so much better after a few hours. 

Today's blog post is worthy of being shared with all of your friends... before the Rapture!

God's Timeline

By Hal Lindsey

In all of history, only at the end of World War II did the world order change shape as rapidly as it is changing right now. And those changes were set up by a global war. Today's changes have come, seemingly, out of the blue. Yet, every day the world looks more like the one described in the Bible as existing during the time of the tribulation.

For decades, I have been teaching that these changes would come. But even for me, the pace and scope of change over the last few weeks has been stunning.

In Matthew 24 and 25, Jesus spoke extensively about His second coming. He included a list of signs. In chapter 24, verses 4-7, Jesus gave what have since become the most famous of those signs. He spoke of wars and rumors of wars, people groups rising up against other people groups, countries against countries, and of famines, pestilences, and earthquakes.

Then, in verse 8, Jesus said, "All these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs."

That's quoting the New American Standard Bible. In it, the word "merely" has been italicized. The translators weren't trying to emphasize the word, but to let us know that they had added it. "Merely" is not in the original text. A better reading would be, "These things are the beginning of birth pangs." As we suffer the present pestilence, we can see that there isn't anything "mere" about it - except when compared to what's coming.

When Jesus used the expression "birth pangs," He was comparing the end-times world to a woman in labor. "Birth pangs" are a series of contractions, waves of tightening and relaxing the uterine muscle. The process is called "cervical effacement and dilation." Relative to the lives of mother and child, it is an extremely brief period. But it can feel like it will never end. It is the painful and difficult transition of the mother's body that will allow her to give birth.

Contractions are usually characterized by an increase in frequency and intensity. If the earth itself and all the people on it are beginning to experience "birth pangs," it begs the question. What's being born? And the answer is astounding. The thing being born is a new world.

The signs will increase in frequency and intensity right up to the point when Jesus returns. Sounds terrible, right? That's why the seven-year period leading to the return of Jesus is known as "the tribulation." Jesus called the last three and a half of those years "great tribulation."

In Matthew 24:21, He said, "For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall."

Though we're beginning to feel the birth pangs, we are not in the tribulation period. Jesus will remove His people out harm's way before the judgments of tribulation fall on the world. That event is usually called the rapture. After that, people will still come to Christ. For the sake of those post-rapture Christians, the tribulation will end before the destruction of everything. And it will end with suddenness and brilliance. "For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be." (Matthew 24:27)

There are many extremely specific signs of the second coming, but no signs specific to the rapture. There can't be. If there were, the event would not be imminent. "Imminent" does not mean it will happen in the next hour. Imminent means that it could happen in the next hour.

James 5:8 says, "The coming of the Lord is at hand." That was almost two thousand years ago, so how could he say, "is at hand"? In this case, "at hand" means imminent. The first part of the Lord's coming - the rapture - could happen at any time. That means there cannot be any signs yet to be fulfilled before the rapture. Otherwise, it would not be "at hand."

In Luke 12:40, Jesus said, "Be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect." Jesus did not say, "Look for signs and when you see them, get ready." He said, "Be ready."

If you expect to go in the rapture, you may wonder why signs should interest you. If we're seeing signs of events that will take place after the rapture - and we are - we should be looking up, because it means the rapture must take place very soon!

Dear Friends,
     I don't want to appear vindictive or revengeful,  but we live with laws which say we have Justice and the right to address the injury made upon us from diverse parties, people, States and countries.  That means, for instance, that if I drink too much whiskey, jump in my truck while intoxicated and hurt another human being on the highway --- I am culpable and if found guilty in a court of law, will pay damages and possibly go to prison!  The laws must be severe enough to make sure that people take reasonable care and caution NOT to break the laws of the land.  Who wants to live in a lawless land that is dangerous and violent?  Not I.  In fact, I have a 'retainer' on a certain attorney that I trust up where I live, who also charges a healthy fee for his opinions and study of law.  $$$.    I am not a law breaker but just life itself throws all of us some mean curves [just like the game of baseball], so that we should be well prepared for anything. 
      Short true story of my youth...  One year when I was perhaps a freshman in high school, we were all invited for Thanksgiving dinner at my Mom's mother's house in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but my cousin, Scott Erner and I went outside to throw and catch a hardball that I had down by Lake Michigan.  Scotty through a fast ball at me that I failed to catch so that it hit me right in the mouth, and it really hurt!  So we returned to Grandma's house later but I really could not enjoy all the great foods that our grandparents laid out because of my sore mouth and teeth.  I later developed an abscessed upper front tooth that actually caused me to pass out from the pain, and later had to endure a "root canal" dental procedure and finally an extraction while at my AIT training in Aviation school--Fort Rucker, AL.  So let's forget about who was at fault... but who suffered so much because I missed the stinking ball?!?  I began to shy away from dentists as they always inflicted too much dental pain... Ha!  But it's just something that I have to endure and the summon up my courage so as not to appear a weak, sissy.  I have been a very active guy all my life and thus eventually got hurt seriously a few times, but lived through those nasty injuries, including a broken neck, 12 fractured ribs, both wrists and forearms, a broken ankle, and many other mishaps, just for starters and on different occasions.  Actually, my 2-- years in Vietnam as a Huey helicopter 'doorgunner' were like a 'walk in the park' compared to the next 30 years back in the States.  Now days, when ever I wake up, I thank Father God for another day of life! 
      And I think about heaven a lot and read about it, and true Salvation thru the merits of Christ's ransom blood sacrifice for all mankind. 
     But in the case of China being responsible for the cruel death of so many people around the world, stealing the days of life, especially those older folks who worked so hard all their lives so they might enjoy some peace, quiet, and relaxation in their golden years... what a horrible end of life!  Shame!  There has got to be some JUSTICE these days when the heads of State and high officials had to know what was going on, and who funded these experiments and for what reason.  If the USA were caught breaking the Law, we would already be a bankrupt nation from all the law suits!  See the rise and fall of mighty nations thru the ages, starting 6000 years ago.  It's all laid out in the KJV Bible for all to see and learn.   Actually, according to the Bible, we are now in the last 'World Power' right now... before the Lord Jesus comes back to set all things right.  Is that comforting for you to ponder?  I can hardly wait. 

Warm Regards,
Thomas G Schuckman

----Below is a picture of me getting some long needles in my knees to take away some of the pain of arthritis and ground down joints which later both were replaced, and the Milwaukee VAMC doctors did a rotten, lousy job in their surgery of my Right knee replacement, with some of the worse pain in my entire LIFE!!  Six months later I had my other knee operated on in Kenosha [Wisconsin] Memorial Hospital-- down by the Lake Michigan, by a young doctor who was Jewish, with only half the pain, misery, and the staff treated me like a king! 

Just think of it: If this [Wuhan] laboratory turns out to be the place where the virus came from, we paid for it. We paid for the d*mn virus that's killing us," said former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

I want to give you the shocking timeline as explosive new information comes to light about China's research on coronavirus leading up to today's crisis. - Mat


There are very serious accusations surfacing now about the origins of COVID-19. Years ago, Chinese virologist Dr. Shi Zhengli was working on a joint project between the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the University of North Carolina.

Something happened in 2014 that caused the Department of Homeland Security to shut down the joint research project on "bat coronavirus" due to the risks it posed to health and safety.

But that didn't stop Dr. Zhengli. The Chinese government welcomed her work and, the next year (2015), China launched its own first ever mainland bio lab to study the most severe infectious diseases.

Dr. Shi Zhengli landed at the Wuhan Institute of Virology where she directs the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases. That same year, Dr. Zhengli co-published a paper discussing bat coronaviruses that showed potential for "human emergence."

The DHS shut down these experiments in America because they were too high risk. But China pressed forward. It is time to hold China accountable with investigations and sanctions right now for the damage that has been caused around the world. Some US legislators are joining our push for sanctions against China. Now is the time to rise up and demand answers and actions.
In addition, our U.S. government took safety one step further by banning funding for risky virology studies. However, between 2014 and 2019, under Dr. Fauci's leadership as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) awarded a total of $3.7 million in grants to EcoHealth Alliance to study the "risk of future coronavirus (CoV) emergence from wildlife using in-depth field investigations across the human-wildlife interface in China," according to the Washington Examiner. And bats are one of the main focuses of this organization.

As much as $700,000 of our tax dollars were funneled through Dr. Fauci's NIAID and given to the now-infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology, where Dr. Shi Zhengli continued her research. This was research that was banned from the United States because it was considered too risky. It was even considered too risky to fund in other nations. But NIAID funded it anyway.

This leaves us with a serious question. Did Dr. Anthony Fauci authorize the illegal payment of millions of your tax dollars to China to give a competing national powerhouse the ability to continue risky studies on bat coronaviruses? And it just so happens that these studies included the exact virus that caused a pandemic within the same year of NIAID's last grant to China. This same virus rocketed Dr. Fauci from obscurity in the public mind to becoming a household name across America...

Meanwhile, China gets to keep our money and the medical knowledge they gained through this multi-million-dollar process. But American scientists are left in the dark. Our medical community is out in the cold. And American taxpayers are left footing the bill.

It's time to hold China accountable and responsible for their actions.
China is already manipulating this to its advantage. It has a long history of human rights violations (and those numbers are on the rise). In addition, it is facing ongoing accusations of cutting out the organs of healthy prisoners of conscience for transplant surgery—while the donors are still alive and aware. Yet, Communist China was shockingly granted a seat on the UN Human Rights Council earlier this month.

Within two days, another story broke about a call between France's President and the Chinese President. France's leader "asked for a billion masks, and [Chinese President] Xi said, 'We'll give them to you if you implement 5G with Huawei.' That's who China is and it's time the world wakes up and recognizes it," according to The Washington Sentinel.

China was holding medical supplies hostage from countries in need because it wanted to have its own 5G system monitoring the people in France. This is the same internet technology company that American leaders are fighting against because of serious privacy and surveillance concerns.

China needs to be held accountable for the pain, panic, and death that it wrought on our world, not rewarded with additional international leadership opportunities and unfettered surveillance and control of independent nations around the world.
