For lawlessness to start there must first be a “law” that people could practice lawfulness. Did you get that? Where did lawfulness start?
In the beginning God…Genesis 1:1
So He declared to you His covenant which He commanded you to perform, the Ten Commandments; and He wrote them on two tablets of stone. Deuteronomy 4:13
…for when Gentiles, who do not have the (written) law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the (written) law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts… Romans 2:14-15
…I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts... Hebrews 8:10
I love this phrase:
Kingdom People Today
We Kingdom People see and discern lawlessness EVERYWHERE: government, military, religion, media, law enforcement, medical field, financial market, secret societies, schools, youth clubs, homes…
First, for us –we know that the law is good if ones uses it lawfully, knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless… 1 Timothy 1:8-9
Second, people are not our enemy – …we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.Ephesians 6:2
Third – ...now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the Ekklesia (those called out of Satan’s kingdom of darkness into Jesus’ Kingdom of Light) to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places…Ephesians 3:10

Hope for us Kingdom People who follow and practice truth!
Finally, the air has cooled, the fans are turned off and as I sip coffee on the back deck watching the morning light, I look to the East and a morning star appears above the treetops. This has been a pattern of mine for years but this morning I asked myself when did this start? When did I start receiving so much joy and peace just sitting still?
Fishing. When I was around six or seven years old, my three older brothers were busy with their lives, so by default I guess, my dad would take me fishing early in the morning. Four things I learned about myself and fishing.
First, when fishing with dad it was OK to eat a candy bar and drink a soda at 5 AM.
Second, I did not have to brush my teeth or comb my hair and I got to wear my most comfortable clothes; you know the favorite worn jeans with a few holes, I usually pulled them out of the dirty clothes hamper.
Third, once we would leave the bait shop, and get to the “secret” pond there was no noise, only the sound of the early morning birds, locusts, a few frogs and the slow rhythm of the soft waves under our rowboat. If we had to talk, we would whisper as if on an undercover mission to sneak up on the fish.
Fourth, the truth is that I never really liked fishing at all, I just liked hanging out with my dad; just the two of us.
My dad was never a “church goer” and today I rejoice in that. Because he taught me early on, the value of just being quiet in the presence of God’s creation.
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble,
Therefore we will not fear...
The Lord of Host is with us...
Come behold the works of the Lord...
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.
Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
The Lord of hosts is with us...
As Kingdom members we dare not fall into the trap of cultural fake news. Fake news is just a distraction to tempt us away from our daily assignments of ministry.
You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. 2 Timothy 2:3-4
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us… 2 Corinthians 5:20
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ Philippians 3:20
UNDERSTANDING THE FAKE NEWS PATTERN?
Stage #1 – One or more mouthpieces with some kind of image of authority, speaking fake, false, misleading, disinformation based on a biased viewpoint. Igniting targeted interest groups that attach their own personal agenda, then defend the news and attack anyone who opposed the view.
Stage #2 – Give it a name, with an easy initial to remember and brand it with a physical gesture to unite the movement. Now pre-made websites are launched with some kind of fake promises that motivate people to donate money to the cause. Yes, follow the money trail and you will find the group behind the curtain pulling the strings of thousands of puppets.
Stage #3 – Targeted groups now with their united name and brand begin to speak the same five talking points over and over like an “echo chamber” creating their own fake news until those that are listening begin to either side with them or oppose them. This is social media at its worse, constantly posting altered news clips, videos of injustices from years ago, connecting the injustices to their great grandfather’s grandfather, next someone picks up their gun.
Stage #4 – Release the Beast; individuals and groups are brought to a frenzy by the false news and now start to “mob up” to “right the wrong”. Remember, this is not an organic movement, there is always folks in the shadows paving a way for the beast. These are the ones who have pulled protest permits in advance, who have arranged bail money and attorneys to be on standby and who have posted the advertisements to hire protestors and purchased bricks to be strategically placed in those protest areas.
HOW TRAGIC BUT WE MUST MOVE PAST IT
If we allow our minds to get wrapped up in these wars, we risk missing the very assignment we have been called to. We might be blinded or seared in our hearts and miss an opportunity to pray, to give an encouraging word, to feed someone. We might be tempted to be offended ourselves and actually curse the one we are called to minister to.
I pray in Jesus Name that each of you would be on guard with your shield of faith held strong while practicing the gift of self-control. Keep your discernment sharp and pray the prayer of faith, lay hands on the sick, share the Gospel of the Kingdom. Be wise in all you do.
Thomas Spencer, A Trusted Voice in a Fragile World
I am sorry I must use my discernment gift to connect these dots, but it seems that everyone is so distracted by this wave of deception that we can’t think about anything else. People of The Kingdom of God, please read, look up for yourselves and then get back to what Jesus has called you to today!
Rules of connecting the dots:
Who gets the money? Always, always, follow the money trail.
Who is getting the glory?
What is the purpose of a thing?
I did not know what the acronym BLM stood for, let alone that it was an actual organized group until a few months ago. I thought it was just another seared conscience group of violence. So, in my own investigation (it did not take long) I discovered it is basically a money laundering front for the Democratic Party. Follow my steps:
Internet: type BLM – 2. Click Home Page – 3. Click Donations, what do you find? ActBlue financial clearing house. 4. Click on ActBlue – 5. Click about us under their “Fine Print” page. Below are copies from their web site, which is legal to copy if I give the original source, of which I do.
Campaign Finance Laws
ActBlue, ActBlue.com, “Want Blue States?”, and “The online clearinghouse for Democratic Action”.
Political contributions are governed by campaign finance laws. ActBlue makes its best efforts to ensure that all contributions made on the ActBlue site are in accordance with these laws. Nonetheless, you have final responsibility for ensuring your own compliance.
For example: ActBlue will not permit users to make donations larger than $2,800 to any federal candidate.
Donations to charities (501(c)(3) organizations) and social welfare groups (501(c)(4) organizations) are not subject to any contributions (copied as is from site) limits. You may make unlimited donations to these groups on the site.
ActBlue is a nonprofit organization (did you get that) that builds tools Democrats count on to run their own small-dollar fundraising programs.
ActBlue Charities is a registered charitable organization formed to democratize charitable giving. A copy of our latest financial report may be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (617) 517-7600. Alternatively, our report detailing our programs, a financial summary, and the percentage of contributions dedicated to our charitable purpose, along with a copy of our license, may be obtained from the following state agencies: FLORIDA, GEORGIA. MARYLAND, MD, MISSISSIPPI, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, NORTH CAROLINA, PENNSYLVANIA, VIRGINIA, WASHINGTON, WISCONSIN, WEST VIRGINIA, WV.
Rules of connecting the dots:
Who gets the money? Democratic Party, Joe Biden in this case with just over 119 million so far in 2020.
Who is getting the glory? Well the fake news says that Black Lives are getting the recognition they deserve but, in my experience, the ones getting the money also get the glory.
What is the purpose of a thing? Fake news says that it is all about getting justice for Black Lives, triggered by a horrible death of a man being taken into custody that was murdered.
I am concerned that Black Lives have been deceived to believe that this movement of horrible violence would bring about some reform.
I see that BLM movement seems to spring up in riots just before an election.
I am concerned that some BLM financial donators may not know where their donations are going.
I am concerned that foreign financial donators (who legally cannot give to an USA election campaign) could use this clearing house to insert money into the Democratic Party unnoticed.
I am concerned that the whole nation, if not world, has been distracted to the degree of blocking our sight of “other things” being slipped through our country.
Wonderful People of The Kingdom of God on Earth:
You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.
2 Timothy 2:4
I know we all want to correct the wrong, champion the underdog and stand for righteousness but we must pick our battles wisely. You are being watched by the world. The entire world has access to everything you post online. I know you want to give a thumbs-up on an “off colored” post, but as The Ekklesia, The Called-Out Ones from Satan’s kingdom of darkness to Jesus’ Kingdom of light, we may be the only witness someone sees.
Now that we can see what is going on, may we stop engaging and get about our Lord’s business.
TO YOU IT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO KNOW THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD MARK 4:11
I am a lover of Truth, a born again disciple & Ambassador of Jesus who is: The Son of our Living God, Savior of all mankind, resurrected from the dead, seated at the right hand of God & Head of The Ekklesia. I am called to preach the love and acceptance to all mankind & reconcile them to God before the door of Grace & Mercy shuts at the end of this age.

Some call me a romantic, an idealist or a dreamer who is out of touch with reality but this March 30th 2015 I am starting my 15th year of being crazy in love with my wife Sandy Spencer. With this overwhelming desire to race home every day after work just to be in her presence, I have been given a partial inside glance of how Jesus views His Bride to be.
I was studying with a friend several years ago and he just blurted out;
…everyone knows who the Bride of Christ is!
Do you know who the Bride of Christ is? Do you think you are in that company? Are there any qualifications that are expected to be met? Can you point out those that are the Bride of Christ and those that are not? What is her purpose both now & in the future?
In this hour of prophetic fulfillment many religious people will try to persuade you to make eternal decisions based on Heaven or Hell; what a pathetic existence of fear based teaching. Yes Heaven & Hell are very, very real but our motivation of eternity cannot be based on NOT GOING TO Hell therefore Heaven is a better alternative. Our eternity is not based on where but on whom. The Bride of Christ is NOTHING without the Groom: Jesus.
I will give you the answers right up front, if this speaks to you then enjoy the details that follow.
The Bride of Christ is…
Gentiles not Jews, not composed of Old Testament Saints.
In love with Jesus, the Son of our Living God.
The ones that have submitted to the cleansing & purifying of His Word.
Not the whole Church but a called-out body, from a called-out body.
Many are called but she will be chosen from the called by a set of virtues.
The 100 fold; not the 60 fold or 30 fold chosen from the same ground or field.
Prepared for the rapture event that starts the Wedding Feast.
Will be caught away in the rapture event.
The rapture of the Bride is the first fruits offering of the barley harvest.
John’s vision of the 24 elders with crowns (not the multitude) Revelation 4.
The ones that say: “Come.” Revelation 22:17.
The Bride can be also be identified by 5 crowns or rewards for her earthly service:
Victor’s Crown: overcoming the desires of the flesh 1Corinthians 9:25.
Crown of Righteousness or Watchers Crown 2 Timothy 4:8
Crown of Life: remaining faithful in persecution James 1:12, Revelation 2:10
Crown of Glory: leading those in your influence with a righteous example 1 Peter 5:1-4
Again, the one true motive behind all of this service is because we are so crazy in love with our Lord Jesus, thankful for his: life, death & resurrection, living in full faith that He is preparing a place for us and that He can’t wait to have His Harold proclaim: “Behold the Bridegroom cometh!”
If you realize you are not in this company of The Bride of Christ, make yourself ready…choose to be chosen!
We must mix all of the scriptures with faith or they remain as just words on a page. Over 40 years ago I was seeking Truth and I was given the very Word of God that pointed me to God’s Son Jesus and The Holy Spirit or the “Spirit of Truth” that teaches me all things! Wow what a package deal!
A Storm is Coming and our Lord God is about to speak!
Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm: Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. Job 40: 6-7
What is the purpose for looking into the appointed times of God? To keep us awake; ever praying, serving and witnessing of the great love of Jesus knowing that this season of Grace and Mercy is quickly coming to an end!
1. God’s Calendar
Understanding God’s Calendar that He established with Moses concerning “appointed times” was first based on remembering the first Passover in Egypt and then the other Feasts which all had their beginning & ending according to the “new moon” or the tiny crescent moon in the sky. Prideful man cannot just assume what day it is, he must “LOOK UP” and calculate from each “new moon”!
Sabbath, Shemitah, Jubilee – just as every seventh day was laid out by God as a Sabbath day of rest, every seventh year or Shemitah year was designated as a Sabbath year or a year of rest and at the end of every seven Shemitah years (or 49 years) started the year of Jubilee (or the 50th year)!
Don’t let the word “rest” fool you; Jewish understanding is that they only got rest, blessing & refreshment IF they followed the way and commands of God all week then a Sabbath, all year for 7 years then a Shemitah, every Shemitah for 7 Shemitahs then a Jubilee!
Harbingers – But what if they did evil and did not follow the ways of God? They would receive Judgment instead. If God’s people were not faithful, our loving God who wanted to give rest & blessings would always send Harbingers or a series of warnings to help His people repent & get back on track so He could bless them.
So what does this have to do with America? Just as Israel was a nation created by God, God blessed it, that is until the nation rejected God, and God sent warnings, Harbingers. Israel did not heed the warnings which brought national judgment. In the same way America was founded as a Jesus Faith based Nation, and dedicated itself to the service of God, through the founding fathers. Just as Israel was not faithful to her dedication and was judged, so America has not been faithful to God who has blessed her and established her; to which we have seen God’s warnings or Harbingers (the major ones based around the Twin Towers September 11, 2001). Not only has America not repented as a Nation, America has gone just the opposite direction; actually denying that this country was built on Christian values, plus God’s Word is on the edge of being illegal (considered a book promoting hate-crimes and the name of Jesus cannot be used in public prayer.
Current note: more Jews still live in USA than any other place except Israel. God always had to use hardships to get the Children of Israel moving; in this case, moving back to Israel. American Harbingers should be a warning at least to the remaining Jews to get moving back to Israel.
2. Current Calendar
September 24, 2014 was the start of a 7th Shemitah year. March 20, 2015 is the exact midpoint of the Shemitah and sundown September 13, 2015 the exact end of the Shemitah year on the Hebrew calendar day of Elul 29 and the start of the 50th year; The Year of Jubilee.
3. Signs in the Sky
Back to “looking up” to the moon and the sun.
Blood Moons – Understanding the importance of the moon and “appointed times” we look at a lunar eclipse or eclipse of the moon (called blood moons; as at the moment of eclipse the moon turns red). Jewish understanding is that a lunar eclipse is a “sign” for the Nation of Israel and that a solar eclipse or eclipse of the sun is a sign for the sinful world or Gentile Nations.
March 20, 2015
To understand why I would consider the solar eclipse on March 20, 2015 to be a judgment for the Gentile Nations especially USA we must zoom our lens out a little farther to look at an amazing sequence of lunar eclipses called Biblical Tetrads (groups of fours) in this case 4 blood moons that eclipse on God’s calendar of appointed times declaring the start of Jewish Feasts. This has only happen in this order twice in the last 500 years and this will be the eight time since AD 1 plus it will not happen again for about another 600 hundreds years.
If the odds of Biblical Blood Moon Tetrads are not great enough to grab you attention; put a solar eclipse right in the middle of the four blood moons and have it land on the Jewish New Year. The odds of that happening are not one in a million/trillion – the odds are so slim that I could not get all of the zeros on this page!
4. Follow all of the overlays on this year’s calendar.
2014 – 2015 four blood moon total lunar eclipses all falling on feast days with a solar eclipse in the middle landing on the Jewish New Year plus landing in the middle of a Shemitah Year but not just any Shemitah Year the seventh in a row which ushers in the Year of Jubilee on September 13, 2015.
Blood Moon – Passover, April 15, 2014
Blood Moon – Tabernacles October 8, 2014
Start of Shemitah – September 24, 2014
Solar Eclipse – midpoint of Shemitah – March 20, 2015
Blood Moon – Passover, Evening of Saturday April 3, 2015 to Evening of Sunday April 4, 2015
Feast of Unleavened Breads: April 4-11
April 4-5 – Pagan Holiday Easter – First Fruits Barley Harvest
May 23, 2015 Feast of Weeks (Pentecost): May 23-24 Full Barley Harvest (count 40 days)
End of Shemitah & start of Year of Jubilee (Elul 29) September 13, 2015
Feast of Trumpets: September 14-15
Day of Atonement: September 23-24
Blood Moon – Tabernacles, September 28, 2015 (possible catching away of the Gentile Martyrs saved after the rapture of the Bride).
Feast of Tabernacles/Shelters/Harvest: Sept. 29 – Oct. 5
The Eighth Day: October 5-6
5. Fact Review about Blood Moons & Israel
What is significant about this? A tetrad of lunar eclipses on feast days has only occurred two times in the last 500 years; 1949/50, and 1967/68. During each of those tetrads of total eclipses Israel was at war.
“Though Israel was declared an independent state sixty years ago in 1948, the war with its neighbors began after its first day and lasted for a year. Therefore, the first lunar eclipse of 1949 occurred during this war for the establishment of Israel. The next tetrad began on Passover 1967, which was just six weeks before the Six-Day-War. Therefore, these two significant wars of Israel were covered by each tetrad period.”
6. Fact Review about Shemitah Years & the USA:
For instance, the five greatest economic crashes of the last 40 years – 1973, 1980, 1987, 2001 and 2008 – all occurred in Shemitah years – those God set apart as Sabbath years. In 2001 and 2008 they coincided precisely with the exact end of the Shemitah year on the Hebrew calendar day of Elul 29. (d)
As You Wake
Father God has established appointed times on His calendar to “meet” with His people, given us signs in the sky to get us to look up and remind us of those appointments and has given us prophecies in His Written Word for us to prepare for those appointments. Now the wind is blowing, a storm is brewing.
*Mark Biltz: The Feasts of the Lord (a), Blood Moons (d).
*Jonathan Cahn: The Harbingers (c), The Mystery of the Shemitah (b).
A Storm is Coming and our Lord God is about to speak!
Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm:Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. Job 40: 6-7
America; I write this to you in advance so that when you hear the Voice of the Lord, you will know it to be true. The Word of our Lord turns from a Nation to the individual people.
Father God has already given America opportunity to repent as a Nation but instead America has continued to drift down a slippery slope, and has come to the edge of the cliff. Now our Lord will address the Individuals who live in America because the storm will fall on the just and the unjust.
As You Wake, Remember this
Oh America, you have drifted from your ways, you have turned you back on you purpose and calling in this life, you have removed yourself from the protection of the One who established you. Did you deceive yourself to believe that there would be no consequence?
“He (God) makes the nations great, then destroys them; He enlarges the nations, then leads them away. He deprives of intelligence the chiefs of the earth’s people And makes them wander in a pathless waste. They grope in darkness with no light, And He makes them stagger like a drunken man.” Job 12:23-25
As You Wake, Remember this
Father God has established appointed times on His calendar to “meet” with His people, given us signs in the sky to get us to look up and remind us of those appointments and has given us prophecies in His Written Word for us to prepare for those appointments. Now the wind is blowing, a storm is brewing and we will probably be in the eye of the storm very soon.
