Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

And so, the Olympics opened with a great burst of light as the South Korean, gold-and-silver-medalist skater, Yuna Kim, ignited the Olympic flame far beneath on the ice, whence it climbed up the spiral of fire to the top, where it burst into a cauldron of flames. The dancers began to dance their red-hot dance with the appearance of demons, while fireworks burst forth in an explosion above. They were followed by the dancing Gremlins, but we are told that they represent good spirits, according to Korean tradition.
It was the drama of man at his best as always, but only, the imitator of the light, which God called forth in the darkness to dispel it; but the darkness could not comprehend the light. Man does not comprehend the difference between the light of the Olympic torch for the gods of Olympus and the burning torch of light, which lit up the dream of Abraham when he fell into a deep sleep and was gripped by terror and great darkness while receiving God’s promises of His covenant. He saw, too, the smoking oven, jettisoning us forward in prophecy to the smoking ovens of Hitler’s death camps, which served to kill train-loads of Jews whom he sent there to be tortured and ultimately annihilated.
As we train our children, at whatever cost, to work for the gold of the Olympics, at the same time we are denying them the good gold of Havilah. They receive no training for the rewards of God, and we cannot even imagine the incredible wonders, which He has wrought, lying in store for those who have honored Him instead of delighting themselves with the gods of this world and the works of man. Surely a gold medal cannot hold a candle to the incredibly beautiful gold of worship when, at last, we are in His presence.
If we claim to be a nation under God, then why are we not training up our children? How could we neglect anything as important for them as that, and yet, we would do everything in our power to get them to the Olympics, if they were to make this their goal? They are like little sapling trees planted in the cellar in the springtime to bring forth rapid growth as they begin to reach their tender branches upward toward the light, but then, are forgotten and left to wither and possibly die.
Thus says the Lord God: “I will take also one of the highest branches of the high cedar and set it out. I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one, and will plant it on a high and prominent mountain. On the mountain height of Israel I will plant it; and it will bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a majestic cedar. Under it will dwell birds of every sort; in the shadow of its branches they will dwell. And all the trees of the field shall know that I, the Lord, have brought down the high tree and exalted the low tree, dried up the green tree and made the dry tree flourish; I, the Lord have spoken and have done it (Ezekiel 17:22-24).”
We are certainly not training up the children by denying them the Word of life but, in fact, we are stunting their growth, probably even preventing them from ever leading a healthy, spiritual life, as a very high, tender branch. Yet we will stare in wonder, marveling at the sight of the Olympic flame, considered to be the symbol of the spirit of light, knowledge and life, supposedly the divine light of Apollo, coming from the sun’s rays.
Meanwhile, we are looking at streets full of the cellar plants, which, instead of producing beautiful flowers and good fruit, are turning into depraved, violent, destructive human beings, wanting as many hand-outs as they can get from home and government. They appear to be unable to take responsibilities and settle down to the job of looking after themselves. They need a comfort room where they can lose themselves with crayons and playdough to forget the trauma caused by the very suggestion that the best thing for them would be a good day’s work. The reality people, like President Trump, are too much for them to endure, in their immature, infantile state.
This has been the pattern set by the former administration for transforming a great nation under God into one dependent on the government dole. These little cellar plants have been taught by the highest office in the land to reject the God of the Bible and to place false gods in His place.
The lies of religion come with the venom of the serpent. Our cellar plant children are unable to discern the difference between truth and religion because the Bibles have been stolen from them by progressive liberals, most of whom were cellar plants, themselves. They are full of the rebellion and hate, which come with the leaven of religion that prevents understanding, causing them to remain children of darkness in a complete state of deception from listening to an endless string of lies.
Jesus said of the Pharisees to do as they say but not as they do; for they disguised their evil intent with long prayers in the market place, having the semblance of piety, all based on the religion of Judaism, and not on the truth. They had the Truth standing before them but, the scales of religion blinded them from seeing the Son of God, the very Truth of the Word made flesh.
We have blinded our children spiritually so that evil has taken over any good they might have had in them. They are fast-tracking down the roadway to destruction and it is a very broad road, indeed, to accommodate the numbers. Where has the church been hiding – the one of which Jesus said the gates of hell would not prevail against it? He did not say that the gates would prevail against half of it, or more; they would not prevail against any of His apostolic church.
How is it then that the Christian church is a dying, sinking religion, which is fast-tracking down the same road to destruction? Could it be that it is not the church at all but rather nothing more than a version of religion, which has grown out of Babylon and the Roman Empire?
Of course, it is not the true church of Jesus Christ, for the Emperor Constantine is its father and the pope was its first high priest. It holds the true church captive to Rome as was Israel, in the days of Jesus, captive to Rome with the high priest Caiaphas controlled by the Roman Empire. Jesus had to take His church out of captivity to the corrupt, Judaic system of priests who had no relationship to the Levitical priesthood at all.
Christianity most certainly holds hands with Judaism, but neither religion is of the Lord God who is the designated Ruler over America. America is ruled by the God of truth and that makes the Bible, His Word, the rule of the government, the courts and the schoolroom. They are not the denominations of Christianity, which rule over us. It is His truth of the Word, Jesus, who rules, and God will tolerate no religious gods beside Him.
Know and understand well that religion and truth are the two opposing spirits, which vie for the lives of man. Religion comes from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, while truth comes from the tree of life. The first tree is founded on a foundation of lies, and our children need to learn at a very early age that there are no liars in heaven. The gates of hell prevail against those who are of the death cultures of the empires of this world. God is not the Father of any such cult or culture; He has His own kingdom of heaven and will have it on earth, too.
Truth is the foundation for the nation of life, which is ruled only by God. Our children must be taken from the cellars and into the light from above. We are killing them by turning them into cellar plants, their little branches struggling to reach up and embrace the light, the true Light, which comes down from above.
