Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

The signs of our times are modified products – modified food and modified species. We want the apple to grow bigger and rosier, and the fish to grow bigger, in a shorter span of time. We have even begun to modify man with the idea that, through cloning, we will be able to improve on God’s creation of the living, breathing, pulsating human being.
Man has never been satisfied with just being the created – it is in his heart to be a god like the Most High God, the Creator. Satan planted the seeds of sin in man, something from which he suffers to this day. It ultimately boils down to the god we love in ourselves, which is commonly known as pride.
At the moment, scientists are working on the species of fish called salmon, attempting to grow it much bigger in much less time. The problem is that the final product could not only be poisonous, but could also poison the rest of the salmon in the ocean. Scientists claim it will be a farmed fish only, but the problem is that such modifications have a way of creeping into the wild to become mingled with the natural species, which God created. The worst scenario is that salmon will become a poisonous fish, which will no longer be edible.
Jesus said “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst (John 6:35).” “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world (John 6:32-33).” The spiritual signs of our times are a modified Jesus, a modified Word, and a modified morality. The spiritual modification of Jesus is infinitely more poisonous and deadly to man than is the natural modification of the salmon.
Apostasy is the result of a modified gospel. If one were to examine institutional Christianity and try to compare the modified church today with the church of the apostles, which Jesus instituted, one would be hard-pressed to even see a resemblance between the two. Jesus said the gates of hell would not prevail against His church, but they are most certainly prevailing daily against all religious denominations of Christianity. It would be difficult to find spiritual food of the nature Jesus provided for His church, within the religious systems of Christianity.
One only has to look at one of the biggest denominations of Christianity in this country – the United Church of Canada. In my time, I have seen various United Church Moderators come and go, one of whom declared Jesus not to be divine and another, a proponent for the endorsement of Wicca as a viable religion, which should be included in the circle of inter-religious dialogue. The homosexual agenda has taken control of its presbytery, and the last news I had of my former church parish was that the minister was an unmarried, pregnant, lesbian entrusted with teaching the truth of the Bible to the congregation. Is it possible to embrace sin while, at the same time, preaching of its pitfalls?
It would appear that homosexuality has become a major issue for the Roman Catholic Church, which preaches against it. The statistics indicate that over 50% of the priesthood is involved in one form of homosexuality or another, according to an unnamed priest who openly declared on television that this was the situation being hushed up behind closed and protected doors. The number of innocent children who, over the years, have been abused and had their lives destroyed by this priesthood, could be counted in the millions.
These are just two examples of countless Christian denominations, which can be called modified churches, with a modified standard of morality as a result of a modified teaching of the Bible; they have been modifying the Word and the meaning of sin for a long time. They now present a modified Jesus to the world. John, the apostle, wrote of Him, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14).” John also said that He was full of truth. There was not an ounce of religion in Him, for He is a pure High Priest.
This is the problem for any religious system; it can only produce a modified product. For it has been compromised from the day religion took root in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve submitted their lives to the apostasy of Satan, which is identified as sin. They believed in the lie that gave birth to the first religious system, which opposed God and His truth, yet did not deny His existence. It is the root of New Age spiritualism, which states that the power comes from within to discern between good and evil, instead of power coming from obeying God who forbids such religion to take the place of truth. It will surely lead to death.
There is very little discernment – in fact, almost none in that religious system we call Christianity today. Jesus refers to it as the Laodicean church, which He will vomit out of His mouth unless the people get their lazy selves up out of the pews and into action. It is time to get the violin section trained (see Music of the Heart) if today’s players are going to play with the Faith Hall of Famers of Hebrews, chapter 11.
Filth is spewing out of Christian pulpits, mainly because of a filthy priesthood, which has never been washed clean by the Word. You could describe them as having the same problem as Judas. The priesthood is about as able to understand the deep mysteries of the Bible as it is able to fly to the moon.
It has no understanding of the waters, of the fields, or of the spiritual crossover blessing, which identifies the Israel of today. It is as blind in its religion as was Saul, the Pharisee who became Paul, blinded by the light that shone on his religious condition as a Pharisee of Pharisees.
Unless the scales of religion are removed from the eyes of the religious, which are causing their spiritual blindness and inability to discern between right and wrong and good and evil, then the religious of Christianity, along with all the other religious peoples of the world, will go the route of the harlot of Babylon. Their destination will become the pit, along with the master deceiver, Satan, who desires nothing more than to take as many souls with him to destruction as is possible.
One of the great lies states that by being good and involved in a social gospel and the world-peace process, you will reach the gates of heaven and be invited in for your goodness and your works. Jesus said that there is absolutely no way this is going to happen, for He, and He alone, is the one and only way back to the Father, and to eternal life in the house of Israel, the family name that defines His royal household, just as the house of Windsor is the family name that defines the Queen of England’s royal household.
Take note that last names are not given in the Bible, for history will determine those who will receive it by entering the gates of the New Jerusalem, named for the tribes of Israel. All who believe on the name of Jesus for their salvation shall be given the name of Israel, while the rest of the deceived shall return to dust, to remain in the unnamed tomb of the lost forever.
Be careful of a modified gospel, which is called apostasy. It is the most poisonous and deadly spiritual food that this world has to offer. The cost of consuming it is enormous; it will cost one one’s life.
