Some of you asked if I could share some special parts of Spencer’s book with the Un-Blog. I’ve got to come up with a title other than “Spencer’s Book”. Any inspired suggestions would be gratefully accepted. The problem with the name is that I don’t want it to be sensational. I want it to be intriguing and descriptive, but not flashy.
One of the chapters in this unnamed book is on the Second Coming. According to Spencer’s vision of this event, he and many other people around the world were outside looking up at the eastern sky. The Spirit had urged them to go look. They were watching the most beautiful white clouds rolling toward them. He said there was no dark underside, as with a storm cloud. They were almost blindly white. They could see that there was someone standing in the cloud. Even hundreds of miles away they could clearly see His face, and He was coming with fire to cleanse the earth.
They heard a voice, not with their ears, but in their hearts, which instructed them to go into the temple. He said they dropped everything and ran as hard as they could to enter the temple. They didn’t go back home to get things, or to find family members, they just ran. They would be instructed to stop and pick up babies as they went. Nobody was left behind who heard the voice.
They ran into the temple in the New Jerusalem and into the assembly hall. They began to sing and praise God. He said the ceiling of the temple became transparent, and they watched Christ come. He was lifting people up to join Him in the cloud, but He was also destroying the wicked as he passed over. Being in the temple was their safety. He said the last thing he remembered was the feeling of gravity releasing Him and the others with him, and they began to ascend into the cloud.
Spencer said that all over the world, the same call was made – run into the temples. Those who heard and obeyed were not consumed, but were caught up to be with Him. He said people ran into many holy places, some were sent into churches, tabernacles and conference centers, and some into their own homes. What made these buildings holy, wasn’t that they were temples or churches, but it was the caliber and righteousness of those gathered within it. That building was holy because those within were holy, and they had heard and obeyed the voice of Christ. Thus, they were standing in holy places.
In our present lives, this same formula separates us from destruction by Babylon, and lifts us to Christ, that we make ourselves holy, and when He calls, we run to obey Him.
