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.

A Storm is Coming and our Lord God is about to speak! A Word of the Lord to America. By Thomas, an Apostle to those of like faith.

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.

Awake oh Sleeping Drifter

America as a Nation has drifted from:

  • Humility & Holiness of God’s Grace and Mercy to Prideful tolerance of all sin
  • Honoring the name of Jesus to denying His name in the public place
  • Consulting the Bible to outlawing the very book in public places
  • Following The Holy Spirit to consulting “mediums” & evoking the occult
  • Celebrating God’s sacred marriage covenant to legalizing base & unnatural practices
  • Protecting the unborn to genocide of our children
  • Spiritual freedom in Christ to religious & political bondage
  • Freeing the slaves to enslaving the free
  • Missionary Nation to a Nation where other countries now send their missionaries
  • Blessing the children of Israel to turning your back on them and stealing their homeland

Oh America how you have drifted, drifted to sleep.

Oh America once you were a great light to all the world and now you have drifted into a sleeping darkness that will soon be forgotten; mentioned only in a whisper of old man’s story.

Oh America you are not mentioned at the end times of the Bible for a reason; for you will not be there, you will be swallowed up into another, you will be unrecognizable.

Awake oh Sleeping Drifter

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.

Look Up: 40 Yrs. with Jesus

Look Up: 40 Years Walking with Jesus!

TheBibleGuy 40 Years

Look Up: 40 Yrs. with Jesus

There comes a time when our lives would be much better if we would just look up.

Our dog Cowboy is getting up in years and surely his sense of smell is better than his eyesight. In the woods he was on the scent of the elk that linger on our property especially in the winter. Nose to the ground, at the edge of the pond with a full charge forward…it would have been much better if he had just looked up. Like a “slapstick” cartoon he actually ran into the largest elk of the bunch; he yelps, takes a submissive roll to his back and then slides into the pond.

In the past 40 years walking with Jesus, I have discovered three types of people:

Group One:

…those that drift aimlessly down the river, their compass is what “feels” good and usually with no goals or sense of direction. They have the thought that they cannot affect their destiny, therefore they try to “experience” everything with no consideration of consequences from choices or worse; lack of choices. They seem to have a lot of “drama” in their lives, little depth of truth, fleeting pleasure and little happiness. These remind me of those in Philippians 3:18-20 “…who set their minds on earthly things.” (read the rest below)

Group Two:

…those who crave knowledge and have mastered the Bible: “knowing” everything about the Jewish calendar & feasts, understanding the prophecies of end time eternity, dazzling those around with their expertise of the “tions” salvation, sanctification, redemption, justification, resurrection, dispensations, elections, predestination…blah, blah, blah. Possessing such great knowledge results in a life of: rules, laws and legalism but no relationship with the very Author of the Bible. This reminds me of Martha the sister of Lazarus in Luke 10:40 “…Martha was distracted with all her preparations…” Or the verse in Matthew 13:14 “In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.”

Group Three:

…these may look like they are aimlessly drifting, but in reality they are fighting the current and headed toward a predetermined destiny. They may consume large quantities of Bible information but more like a treasure hunter learning as much as they can about the author of the book. They are constantly looking up as Mary (the other sister of Lazarus) did when she sat at the feet of Jesus; listening, learning in a relationship with the one who was speaking. Luke 10:39 “…Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word.”

Like our dog Cowboy, perhaps we would all be better off, if we just looked up.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Revelation 4:1 After this I looked (up), and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.

Philippians 3:18-20 For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

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!

TheBibleGuy.com

March 20, 2015 Fear not! I am telling you this in advance so you will know that God is: in control, has a plan and wants to get your attention.

This is not the end of the world. Once the Bride of Christ returns with Jesus after the Tribulation recorded in The Book of Revelation, we still have 1000 more years on earth.

What to do now?

1. If you are not sure of your eternal destination please read these verses in your own bible: John 3:3, John 3:16, Romans 6:23, Romans 10:9, Acts 4:12, Ephesians 2:8-9 and click on my website and follow the steps. www.TheBibleGuy.com

2. If you are sure of your relationship with Christ then encourage yourself with the assurance of these verses: Read all of I John then read the Gospel of John 3:36, John 5:24 & John 17:3, Plus refresh yourself with these verses on Water Baptism; Matthew 3:11, Acts 2:38, 10:47 and then the assurance of Baptism Romans 6:3-5.

3. Now take your family through these same scriptures with actions of repentance, salvation; starting with your inner circle: those who live in your house. Then work your way outward to other family, friends, face book acquaintances etc.

Warning for USA 2014

A word of warning August 2014

August 2014

The Picture – Phase One

Imagine with me that God pulled back the spiritual curtain that separates time and you gained some information in advance of an event that would shake every family in the nation like never before. Imagine for just a moment that you were shown this information so that you could prepare for it. Not to prepare to capitalize on your neighbors suffering but to be useful as an End Time Ambassador of Christ. This truly is what happened with apostle John and what he saw recorded in Revelation 17 & 18.

Imagine this Future Event: You “saw” the government make it illegal to speak the name of Jesus, illegal to own a Bible and illegal to broadcast Biblical programs, illegal to assemble, thus; shutting down every church building in the nation. You “saw” that you were quarantined and would be leading your family spiritually in your own home all by yourself. You would be teaching the Bible, praying over your children, worshiping with your wife, eating your meals in remembrance of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection until He calls us home. You would be covertly testifying to those around you of the saving power of Christ and you would be baptizing those who come to Christ.

Coming back to the present time, you are tempted to doubt that you can fulfill such a calling. No professional clergy, no building, just you and Jesus with your Bible and the power of The Holy Spirit. Do you feel equipped to spiritually lead your family in the way of our Lord?

That is why I am writing to you, it is not only my calling but also my great honor to encourage you in this path of equipping.

How did you do, did the picture seem a little freaky? Could you ever see yourself leading your family spiritually? I mean YOU leading them at home, not leading them to a religious institution to have another lead them spiritually. Even if the event of the closure of the church buildings never happened, the truth is that you are responsible before God to lead your family and the great news is that God has given you everything you need to fulfill His calling! He has given you His: Word, Salvation, Power, Provision, resources, Son Jesus, His Holy Spirit who lives in you and leads you, and today He has given you me.

The Picture Continues – Phase Two

The first picture I gave you was the soft and easy picture, Phase Two will be a little tougher, our Lord wants you to “see” and prepare for both.

Next Imagine with me that God pulled back the spiritual curtain and after the closing down of every church building, thousands more sprung up. But what seems like a great movement of “the church” is actually a movement away from God Himself. A new wave of coexistence and a co-mingling of True Faith with tolerating the teaching of false doctrines. Have you heard of the latest religious fad name Chrislam? It is the false doctrine that Christians, Muslims and Jews all originated from Abraham (which is true, “Father Abraham had many sons”) But the lie is that we all worship the same God. We do not! People, family, friends, coworkers, classmates asking you to go to church with them, quilting you and shaming you to go to church with them and you have to say no. Why? Because this is not the True Church that Jesus is building. This is the Wide Gate in Matthew that leads to destruction and also the whore Babylon in Revelation 17-18 that we are told to come out from among. With this “new wave” the Name of Jesus is removed, the Holy Word of God is nullified by lies and traditions of men and even though there may seem to be an appearance of godliness THERE IS NO POWER! From such you must prepare to exit, run home and lead your own family spiritually.

Now can you see that you will be teaching the Bible, praying over your children, worshiping with your wife, eating your meals in remembrance of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection until He calls us home? You will be covertly testifying to those around you of the saving power of Christ and YOU will be baptizing those who come to Christ.

You have been called to be an End Time Ambassador of Christ (and today I confirm that call) you are to prepare so you will be qualified.

Pray with me: Father God I receive the call lead, guide and teach me by Your Holy Spirit. Prepare me to lead my family, and touch the world around me with Your Truth, Love and Power in Jesus Name. Amen.

Excited for equipping, Thomas Spencer, TheBibleGuy.com

Knowing where God lives: 40 Yrs. with Jesus

Knowing where God lives: 40 Yrs. with Jesus – December 18, 2014 – Day 142,563

humility

Picture from: vineandbranchworldministries.com 

There are keys and then there are master keys.

Knowing where God lives or where His Presence is or where He invests His: time, energy, resources and life has become the most valuable master key in my life.

Isaiah 57:15a (NKJV) For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: 

I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit…

I have discovered some religions practice one or the other but have not found one that practices both. See if you can understand the master key here. 

Contrite and Humble but no reverence for the Holy

I have been in meetings where broken people have come to the end of themselves, cried out to God and have fallen on the floor laughing uncontrollably. Quoting the verse Isaiah 61:3 (NKJV) “…The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…” but then observed as the “flesh” takes over and they start barking like dogs (no reverence). 

Legalistically Reverent but no intimate experience

On the other hand I have walked into meetings where everyone is legalistically threatened to enter like an old-fashioned library; most of the women wore grey with their hair up in buns and the men cowered like passive pets. They were trying to honor God who dwells in the High and Holy Place but actually made Him unreachable altogether. 

The Master Key is to live in both! Tips I have discovered…

 When I pray in public, I formally pray to our Father in Heaven (the High and Holy Place) in The Name of Jesus; referring to Jesus as Royalty; my King, my Lord, The Son of God! In contrast when I pray in the presence of our small group or my family or just all by myself; the atmosphere in the room turns more informal.

My language and worship dive deep, personal and intimate. There is no concern here for formalities or ritual. This is the place where my spirit prays: deep to deep. A place where there is no concern for time or schedules. It is the time of true confession and repentance and worship and deep joy with great hope and incomparable faith. The place where God dwells: in a contrite and humble spirit while maintaining reverence for the High and Holy!

Key to Freedom – Forgiveness: 40 Yrs. with Jesus

Key to Freedom – Forgiveness: 40 Yrs. with JesusDay 142,561

Forgivness

We do seem like fakes; the times we have said we forgive, when deep down in our hearts we want that person to burn in hell. We learned as children to say “sorry” but forgiveness is deeper, it is a process but, I have discovered that there is that moment when it really comes true! 

Growing up we called it our “bad bag”. Everyone that caused us an injustice, we carried around in our thoughts every day. Then if a new person harmed us we would throw them in the bag with everyone else and compound the injustices that were already in the bag. 

Some men have gone to the moon, discovered cures for diseases, saved people from burning buildings or have written the greatest symphony…well…my great goal, accomplishment, achievement was to empty my “bad bag”. 

Once empty, BURN IT!

Now, you no longer have a bad bag!

It is a process; one that for me started by understanding the injustices that Jesus; the Son of God encountered and then followed His path of how to forgive. I have honestly prayed Matthew 6:12 “…And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors” (NKJV). Today I can pray it in advance:  

Father God I purpose in my heart to forgive in advance anyone who would try to harm me or my family this day, help me to walk in forgiveness, Amen.

 Today I pray that you would open YOUR “bad bag” and just dump it, you may feel like a fake in the beginning but as the process continues it DOES become REAL!

Prophecy – Time to Glean

September 2014

 Time to glean

These past years the commission from my Lord Jesus has narrowed from a broad “shotgun” type ministry of the whole world, to a more focused target. Some would call me a missionary, not to an underdeveloped country but a missionary to the United States of America, primarily to the Gentile Church of the United States of America.  Things have changed here and I am to be a witness to the fact that just because “man” changes things does not mean that God endorses those changes.

Time to take inventory of this once great nation; to see and hear what the Lord Jesus has to say about what to speak and what to do. “Father God I ask in Jesus Name that You would lead and guide us as we take inventory, let us stay focused on your tour, help us not to get distracted. In those places where it may seem dark and hopeless; hold our hand, give us strength and make Your purposes clear and sure. Amen”

There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—  having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NIV)

 Inventory:

Men and women who have called themselves spokesmen for God: have, are and continue to rape the sheep of God. These false teachers have left hundreds of thousands of people maimed, hurt, confused and broke. False Evangelists have physically gone from city to city operating in a spirit of witchcraft and stealing what little God’s sheep had. This destruction continues today through the airwaves. People have been paralyzed through lies, false hope and mind altering substances.

A word from our Lord (even though this may apply to other regions in the world, remember the context is the USA)

“This is the hour of final gleaning just as Ruth (Ruth 2:3) gleaned behind the reapers in the field of Boaz. Walk through the fields says our Lord, lift up the rubble, call out one more time, and communicate again with loved ones, even those who call you enemy.

Listen; listen for a breath, for a heartbeat for any interest in Truth. Reach out with faith; faith to bring little ones to salvation, faith to heal the sick and to cast out demons, faith to pray for a sound mind.

In this hour of final gleaning do not be distracted by the promoting of large crowds; glean the one, glean the two be the good servant (Matthew 24:45).”

Treasure Hunter: 40 Yrs. with Jesus – Day 142,556

Gold Fever – In 1980 I travelled to Alaska with three other families on a gold mining expedition costing over 2 million dollars and personally lost everything. I journaled the event thinking I might sell it as a book, but it was so negative I burnt it in the fire. Now armed with this experience I turned to being a treasure hunter in the Word of God.

Know Truth & be Set Free!

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!

Here are three things I started my search with…
  1. As we walk with Jesus He, through relationship gives us the Keys: Matthew 16:19 (NKJV) And I (Jesus) will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven…
  2. There are real Enemies who don’t want us to have the Keys: Luke 11:52 (NKJV) “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.”
  3. The attitude of a true treasure hunter is that we must seek believing that we will find. Hebrews 4:2 (NKJV) For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. Matthew 7:7 (NKJV) “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

If this treasure hunt together is too slow, Email me with the key you are looking for and perhaps I can unlock a quicker path to find it!

Hometown

By Thomas Spencer

The place where we find refuge and safety or feel secure,

Our origin, birthplace, place of belonging,

Pages in our photo album recording our first’s that soon turn into memories:

1st haircut, birthday, bicycle, broken arm, girlfriend…

1st day of kindergarten, fire drill, pint cartons of milk, the pledge to our flag…

1st time to hold a girls hand in a circle, screaming yuck but really liking it…

1st time to drive a car, get a job, and wonder why the bank gave us that first loan.

Our childhood backyard, home base, history, memories of the corner store,

A season where things were measured by the price of gas, a roll of stamps & penny candy,

Where we could safely test life and play before we became adults;

Playing sports, playing music, playing like couples in love and even being in plays,

Until we were all expected to grow up from boys to men & girls to women

I know for some who can’t let go, Hometown still seems to owe them something…

Yet others who are a little detached it is just their password on facebook,

For me, it is the vibrant color in my youth that allows me to paint my life today…

It was where passion for knowing truth was passed on by teachers, coaches, moms & dads.

Hometown was anything from perfect but it was real…

Our friends, family, pets, successes & failures…

Experiences that gave us a glimpse of who we wanted to be & who we did not want to be.

Now as we look back, the gigantic basketball court seems much smaller…

The initials carved into the tree seem a little silly…

That first car, well, it took more power to run the speakers than it did to make it up a hill.

I find myself referring to people & things as; “that old so and so”…

Questions start with; “Remember…” & “I wonder what happened to…”

Bad memories kind of fade into the shadows of time – but the thoughts of Jumping off the swing set, flying into the air & being a super hero once again are still just under the surface!

Hometown, a moment on the timeline of life, a reference of being, a circle of friends & family…

And a safe place to make mistakes & to overcome.

Could it be that God’s Original Design for Hometown was like one of three bird’s nests?

The nest that either had so much comfort we never wanted to leave…

The nest that had little comfort & so many stickers we couldn’t wait to leave…

The nest that was so high in the air with such a beautiful view that we looked back at the nest with great honor but we had to answer the call to adventure to jump out & fly, testing & challenging all that we had been taught in our Hometown.
