I have retired from writing or researching anything other than God's Word and DOING obediently what He says with all my heart, mind, soul and strength. Loving God with ALL the heart is the "first and greatest commandment". Matthew 22:34-40 So there are NO exceptions! Not to worry, Jesus said it's "easy" through His Spirit within us to keep His Word. Please read my latest messages to the left for more instructions on the simplicity in serving God.

Yours in Christ, Thomas Richards

Hello and welcome to spirituallysmart.com. A Web Site dedicated to sharing Bible and historical research. My name is Thomas Richards and I am the sole author and administrator of this site. I am a born again believer in Christ (The Messiah) and have been saved since March 1997.

This is a copy of one of my Military Evaluations which was signed by my Chain of Command up to the Captain of the ship I was on. I post this evaluation only to show that I was a competent human being when I put my mind to something. I was young and ignorant when I joined and it was about 7 years before I became a bible believer. I do not endorse being in the military at all. 

My website name, "Spiritually Smart" simply refers to fearing God. God calls the fear of the Lord, "Wisdom" (Job 28:28). God also tells us, "the fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of knowledge." (Proverbs 1:7a) and "the fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of wisdom..." (Proverbs 9:10a) And that is exactly where wisdom started for me. In 1997 God allowed me to see where I was spiritually. And that I was a sinner on my way to an eternal hell. The Bible calls what I experienced "terror" and "dread"(1)(2). This terror and dread caused me to cry out to God. And God lead me to a bible and I literally opened the bible to these verses in the first chapter of Proverbs:

Proverbs Chapter One Verses 22 - 33
Proverbs 1:22-30 (NIV)

It's hard to express my experience with words but I was hit by the incredible power of God in terms of the reality of these Words in this Bible I had lying around. I experienced the eternity of these words. I felt the weight and perfect truth of these words. And I knew God was warning me personally with these Words. I begged and pleaded for God to have mercy on me. I am condensing this greatly but soon after, I read the Bible verses where Jesus died for me to remove this condemnation I felt and the Bible concludes all mankind is under (1)(2)(3). And it was through a very powerful and unexpected experience I was born again and made a child of God through Jesus Christ (Yeshua Messiah). I knew I received forgiveness from God through Christ and that is when I first experienced true peace and joy in my life (1)(2). But I will never forget that fear of God. And I know that fear was the beginning of wisdom for me. And for anyone who thinks this is a bad thing, this fear of God causes me to love God (obey Him) and love my neighbor as myself which is only a benefit to others and ultimately, myself (1)(2).

Jesus Christ is the most important aspect of my life. He saved my soul and gave me peace within. He suffered and died for me. No one else on earth has done that. The only person who ever impressed me in this world was Jesus. And He is the only One I want to impress. I'm not concerned with what any man or woman think about me. This web site isn't based on pleasing man and it never was. Anyone who thinks so is truly mistaken.

Jesus says through the Apostle Paul, "For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ."Galatians 1:10

The Lord said, "But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you."Luke 12:31

So if I win the favor of men, let it be because I have pleased God. "When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him."Proverbs 16:7

God also tells us "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction." (Proverbs 1:7). Of course, these things (i.e. Wisdom, Knowledge and Instruction) all refer to God's Living Word, the Bible (Both Old and New testaments). And this Word gives many warnings we need to hear (Listen, receive and put into practice). Like so:

"Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith."2 Thessalonians 3:1, 2.

These are the people who have no intention of pleasing God. They also have no faith but are "men pleasers." (1)(2)(3)

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 2 Timothy 3:1-5

So pray for me as I pray for you and may God fulfill His promises in our lives and our loved ones.

"And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." 2 Timothy 4:18

Faith without works is dead..

"By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith." Hebrews 11:7

Bible Study

"For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him." Isaiah 53:2

This verse is in reference to the Tree of Life. The rest of the chapter of Isaiah explains the price that was paid for us, mankind, to again have access to that Tree of Life which we were cut off from after Adam and Eve sinned.

Jesus stated, "If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned." John 15:6

As you can see Jesus is telling us to do something. There are works involved.

We are to "yoke up" together with Christ. "TAKE my yoke upon you,..." Matt 11:29

"Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" Amos 3:3

Paul further warns, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1

Who are you yoked up with?

"God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship (partnership) of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord." 1 Cor 1:9

"If we say that we have fellowship [partnership] with him, and walk in darkness, we lie , and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship [partnership] one with another (us with God), and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." 1 John 1:6-7

Jesus is the Word of God and the Word is our light. We must walk in the Word which is the light. If we walk in the light THEN and only then will the blood of Jesus cleanse us of "all sin."

This is my study. I never steal anyone's study references or guides. The Lord says that the Holy Spirit instructs us.

"But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." 1 John 2:27

"I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye." Psalm 32:8


The Gospel isn't just about defending your soul and salvation.

It's about offense. Fighting the spiritual fight (preaching the true Gospel), for the winning of souls.. not with false doctrine which will only win Bad Fruit. We want good fruit that will in turn win (create) good fruit. Which begins the chain reaction. Bad fruit is really bad isn't it? It stinks, it looks bad and tastes horrible. But good fruit is the most perfect of foods on the face of the earth.
The first message from John the Baptist (Elijah) was "Repent..." Mat 3:2 the first message Jesus brought was the message to "Repent, the kingdom of heaven is at hand" Mat 4:7  the first words of Peter after the Holy Spirit had fallen upon them was Then Peter said unto them, Repent , and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." Acts 2:38 When Paul was converted he said, "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to Repent:" Acts 17 
Anyone who preaches that we don't need to repent was sent straight from the devil. Repentance is works necessary to attain the kingdom of heaven. 
Mat 3:7. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8. Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: 9. And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
And Paul says again, "But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance." 

GOD "...will render to every man according to his deeds:" Rom 2:6

Dec 1st, 2010

"And I saw another angel fly in the middle of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." (Revelation 14:6, 7)

"Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand." (Rev 1:3)

"Behold , I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth , and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame." (Rev 16:15)

"But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh." (Matt 24:43, 44)

Hear the Words of Jesus:

"If you love me, keep my commandments." John 14:15

"Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." John 15:14

This can only happen if you are born again and the Truth has set you free. So repent and confess to God, confess you're a sinner and in need of Salvation through His Son Jesus. God can set you free and give you peace, power and a sound mind.

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

"Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth." 1 Tim 2:4

"... As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? Ezekiel 33:11

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." Isaiah 1:18

"... Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood," Rev 1:5

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." (Rev 3:20)

Vatican launches YouTube channel - Europe, World - The Independent

By Peter Popham in Rome
Friday, 23 January 2009

Bolstered by a hearty endorsement from the Pope, the Vatican plunged into a new age today, launching its own dedicated YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/vaticanit.

Initially available in Italian, English, German and Spanish, the ad-free site gives the Church an official presence in the fast-moving, anarchic world of new technology. Type “Vatican” into YouTube’s search engine and the first video to appear is entitled “The Devil in the Vatican” and claims that the modern Church has gone over to the other side. The second argues that “Nazi Germany was a creation of the Vatican and the Jesuits”. Now the Vatican has the means to fight back.

“The Vatican Television Centre and Vatican Radio have been producing video news on the Pope’s activities every day for over a year,” said the papal spokesman Father Federico Lombardi. “Now they are ready to make this jump into the global arena.”

The Vatican’s fusty facade has long concealed a tech-savvy interior: its solemn-looking web site, www.vatican.va , is a treasure trove, and was once nominated for a Webby award.

Pope Benedict said the new technologies were “a gift to humanity”. By communicating online, he said, we are responding to God, “who desires to make of all humanity one family. When we find ourselves drawn towards other people ? we are responding to God’s call.” But he warned that “if the desire for virtual connectedness becomes obsessive” it can damage “healthy human development”.


I promote the MESSAGE not the MAN. And these messages by A.A. Allen are right on.

A Catholic Wind in the White House

By Daniel Burke (Washington Post)
Sunday, April 13, 2008

Shortly after Pope Benedict XVI's election in 2005, President Bush met with a small circle of advisers in the Oval Office. As some mentioned their own religious backgrounds, the president remarked that he had read one of the new pontiff's books about faith and culture in Western Europe.

Save for one other soul, Bush was the only non-Catholic in the room. But his interest in the pope's writings was no surprise to those around him. As the White House prepares to welcome Benedict on Tuesday, many in Bush's inner circle expect the pontiff to find a kindred spirit in the president. Because if Bill Clinton can be called America's first black president, some say, then George W. Bush could well be the nation's first Catholic president.

This isn't as strange a notion as it sounds. Yes, there was John F. Kennedy. But where Kennedy sought to divorce his religion from his office, Bush has welcomed Roman Catholic doctrine and teachings into the White House and based many important domestic policy decisions on them.

"I don't think there's any question about it," says Rick Santorum, former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania and a devout Catholic, who was the first to give Bush the "Catholic president" label. "He's certainly much more Catholic than Kennedy."

From Jonestown to Waco

This is some important truth and how Jonestown connects to Waco. Check out my Jonestown web page and my Waco web page

What Alberto said about Jim Jones, "...the Vatican planned the infamous Jonestown massacre in Guyana in 1978. Jim Jones was a Jesuit under that secret oath with instructions from Rome to commit mass murder in order to discredit Christian camps. According to Alberto, "The cry went up that politicians should pass laws forbidding groups from setting up retreats. This way, Bible believers would have to hide when the great wave of persecution from Rome begins."~READ MORE

Meanwhile, the pope is STILL covering up Pedophilia (Yes, Pope Francis is too):

The month-long standoff and ensuing deaths of more than 80 men, women, and children--the Branch Davidians--in Waco, Texas. This was the deadliest government action taken against American citizens on U.S. soil since the Civil War.

Watch: Waco: A New Revelation

WACO The Rules of Engagement Documentary

WACO: The Rules of Engagement (EXTRAS - Infrared footage) Deleted by youtube.

Waco: The Rules of Engagement--in which infrared video taken by a surveillance helicopter clearly shows sniper fire, as well as tanks firing incendiary devices into the building. This video footage, incidentally, is widely believed to have been leaked by William Colby, former director of the CIA. At this time he was involved with the Strategic Investments newsletter, the source of information on various scandals regarding President Bill Clinton. Colby later died in a mysterious boating accident.

Propaganda Against the Jews:

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, see also other titles) is a literary article alleging a Jewish and Masonic plot to achieve world domination. The piece has been revealed to be a hoax "The Protocols" (the most brief title by which the text is known) is an early example of contemporary conspiracy theory literature, and takes the form of a speech describing how to dominate the world, the need to control the media, finance, replace traditional social order, etc. It is one of the best known and discussed examples of literary forgery, and a hoax.

Another example of anti-Semitic black propaganda was Eustace Mullins's book A Racial Program for the Twentieth Century, which purported to be proof of a Jewish/Communist plot against White Americans.
