Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

The Bible prophecy of end-days’ events is very straightforward, but the waters are muddied by the fact that the entire world has no idea how to separate fact from fiction and truth from religion. The institutional church, almost without exception, believes that the two blend into one.
This is a belief coming from the pit of hell as a message from the serpent, which was lurking in the forbidden tree of the Garden called the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was waiting to lure Eve ever closer to that fruit, which was so pleasing to the senses that nothing could finally deter her from the temptation to eat it. At that fatal moment of decision, she no longer could resist the desires of the flesh. She must have asked herself if there were really any harm in disobeying God. For years to come, she must have asked herself a thousand times how she could ever have doubted the Word of God. She probably could see the glow of light afar off and hated, all the more, the darkness in which she found herself.
The serpent was clever enough to assure Eve that her Creator might tell her all sorts of things but He would never destroy her or Adam. What kind of a father would kill his own young ones? Briefly, she argued God’s words, but finally, the serpent hooked her with the ‘goodness’ lie, which says God is all about tolerance and is not intolerant of rebellion or sin. She could be just like Him, knowing both good and evil.
Did she not know that Adam was already created in God’s image and that what God said would kill a man was the truth, coming from the mouth of the Designer or Creator, Himself? She was bone of Adam’s bone and did Satan not appeal to the weaker of the two the easier target to strike, one might say?
How easily she succumbed to the lies and lures of the devil as she listened to the voice of the serpent preaching the first message of religion. On that day the lies of religion and progressive liberalism from God became one in Satan’s effort to separate man from God. To this day, they are still working together for the same purpose. On the political scene of the Obama presidency, did we not hear the shout come forth for “No God” at the DNC convention?
Religion tells us that a good God will take His people who are good to be with Him in heaven, no matter how much they might disobey Him and mix all that He created good for man with the belief systems of religion. Though this message was first preached by the serpent, similar messages of liberalism are still being preached in the pulpits of Christian churches around the world. The righteousness of God has become secondary to the liberalism of the devil. Hence, we have so-called Christian nations electing liberal governments in America.
In giving the evil rebellion of religion precedence over the Word of God, Eve, with her husband Adam following, walked straight into a different kingdom on earth, which God then closed off from the Garden on the east side. It became the land of the goats on the left, which had lost their position at the right hand of the Father. The Right and the Left took on a whole new meaning, in the same manner as the West and the East have.
Adam and Eve gave up pure joy, peace and the celebration of life for the empires of Satan, their new father and their new ruler, losing their liberty to become captive in a new secular world. It would be there that the blood would cover the land with the blood of wars resulting in violence, terror and continual lies. The holiness and righteousness of God does not permit cohabitation with darkness, causing His separation from man by his rebellion of the sin of accepting the religion of the devil and father of lies, when he would not be faithful and obedient to His own Father and God of truth.
To this day Satan’s biggest lie is that both truth and religion can be bedfellows with God. In fact, the bride of Christ will never do as Eve did, by eating the spiritually corrupt fruit of a spiritually corrupt seed. The bride knows it leads to death, with religion being the deadly sin, which will always take God’s people and strangle the good out of them until at last Satan has them captive to death. His daily, spiritual bread will be leavened bread, indeed, which manifests itself today as Political Correctness tied to the doctrine of tolerance for all things evil. This means that other gods will be tolerated alongside of God.
There you have the final condition of the fullness of the Gentiles when the last stronghold of the West forsakes the truth of God’s Word for the politically correct message that says God would never want you to speak the truth at the risk of offending the enemy. This is the Day of which God’s Word prophesies, again and again, as the Day of the Lord when His wrath with mankind will have reached its zenith. Man’s enslavement to the empires, apparently will no longer change hearts, which refuse to be led back to Him in repentance.
It is time for the judgment to fall, for the Lord is getting ready to return and set up His kingdom here on earth where truth, alone, reigns and there will be no liars or the sexually immoral within it. Nor will there be any religious temples there for the worship of other gods.
Is Jerusalem not rife for judgment, being spiritually like Sodom and Egypt? Homosexuality is flourishing there today, as it was in Sodom, when the fire judgment fell. The city is captive to many religions under the label of tolerance, but the religion of Judaism does not accept the truth of Jesus any more today than it ever did. In what way does the Israel of a United Nations’ creation have anything in common with ancient Israel, where fountains of living water bubbled up in her midst, with pure doctrines of truth?
“For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns – broken cisterns that can hold no water (Jeremiah 2:13).”
The sequence announcing the end of the former part of the exodus from the empires of this world into the kingdom of the New World Order is straightforward, suggesting the end and the scattering of believers of the house of Israel is over. We are now about to see the tribulation of Jacob’s trouble, just before the return of Jesus to set up His kingdom under God, not Satan, as it once was in America. God will intervene on behalf of Jacob, which is to say, His glory will come down from above as He prepares His remnant bride with the cleansing of the Word until she is pure with no religion left in her.
She will allow no Muslim, Hindu or Buddhist to block up or stop her fountain, and the stick of Ephraim (the crossover blessing of Jacob) will become one with the stick of Judah and his companions of the nation so that they will never be divided again (see Ezekiel, chapter 37). The time is unknown, but the sign of the times is clearly being seen with the emergence of a pure bride washed clean by the teaching and opening of Scripture by the only One who can do so. He is the Lord Jesus Christ who is seated at the right hand of God with His sheep patiently awaiting the Shepherd’s leading into the next step along the Way.
Not knowing exactly when, but rather how we will recognize that day, the prophet Isaiah tells us. So it shall be in that day that the great trumpet will be blown; they will come, who are about to perish in the land of Assyria, and they who are outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem (Isaiah 27:13).
This is written in the context of the entire house of Israel being gathered one by one (see Isaiah 27:12). They ‘who are about to perish’ point to all believers in the salvation of Jesus, the true Jew as described by the apostle Paul (Romans 2:28-29) who are enduring this time of a world with deep troubles, about to fall under the pain of the plagues, when there will be a point of no return as there was for the nation. There will be as miraculous a deliverance for them as there was for the nation, which came through the seawaters untouched, on dry land.
It will be the beginning of a deliverance when there will be heard the great sound of a trumpet being blown. What will we see at this point?
“Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect (His chosen bride) from the four winds, from one end of heaven (Greek plural word ‘heavens’ meaning within earth’s atmosphere) to the other (Matthew 24:30-31).” Note Revelation, chapter 6 and how it allies with this segment of the Olivet prophecy.
The trumpet is most certainly a symbol of significant consequence in both the Old and the New Testaments. It can mean to sound the alarms of war, a call to assembly, or a command to march (see Numbers 10:1-10). The fourth annual holy day is the Feast of Trumpets (Leviticus 23:24, Numbers 29:1). In Psalm 81:3-5 it is indicated that Joseph was released from prison in Egypt on the Feast of Trumpets, making for rich symbolism of a future release of captives from the Babylonian (Roman) captivity of the latter days. Ezekiel, chapter 37, uses Joseph for the representation of the whole house of Judah and the nations of tribes, his companions, and the crossover of Ephraim coming together as one stick in the final days. It has not happened as of yet.
We can never forget, and never have forgotten, as we still sing a song about how God caused the walls of Jericho to fall after seven successive days of trumpets sounding. This was the moment in history when the harlot, Rahab, changed colors from the religion of the empires to go into the line of Mary, who created a virginal line of mankind birthing by the Spirit of God to actually then cross over to become new creations as ‘second-borns’. They are addressed by John the apostle as the Elect Lady of the church to whom he is writing, as if to a bride. He longs for the day when they will be together as the full apostolic church.
There is no question – a trumpet sound is heard to precede the “Day of the Lord” when Jesus returns as King of kings and overthrows the nations of the world, establishing here on earth the kingdom of God. The resurrection of the dead is also related to a mighty trumpet blast (see 1 Corinthians 15:52).
At the first coming of Jesus, John the Baptist witnessed in the spirit of Elijah only because the exodus was not yet complete. However, the bride witnesses also in the completeness of Moses’ power for leading God’s people out of their religious captivity to the Egyptian Empire and into the realm of truth. In the Elijah spirit she will tell the world that there can be no fence sitting for God’s pure church; she will choose to worship in spirit and in truth only, and she will never worship in conjunction with other gods. She must come out of religion lest she share in the sin of Babylon the Great and receive of the plagues, which will surely be in the end as they were in the beginning (see Revelation, chapter 11 and 18:4).
The bride will be thoroughly baptized and will come out of the spiritual waters of this world to receive the pure spiritual waters from heaven above to become a second-born in the inheritance of God. She is as the crossover blessing of Ephraim and the stick of Ezekiel 37, which becomes one with the stick of Judah and the throne of David. Then Israel will never be divided again, as the prophet tells us.
The bride is a second John the Baptist-type of prophet, but this time the breath of God is breathed into her causing her to hear the call to come up here. What a witness this will be when the enemy sees the saved of the nation Israel and the bride of the church rising as one house of Israel to meet with the Lord, who has a rainbow on His head as the light broken for you and me, to become one body united in Christ!
And I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire. And he had a little book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars. And when he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices (Revelation 10:1-3). This was after the sounding of the trumpet of the sixth angel when the little book was opened and new prophecy was revealed to complete the mysteries of God with the trumpet sound of the seventh angel.
Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever (Revelation 11:15)!” This is the sign of the last trumpet.
Is it a coincidence in America, the gathering place for the believers of the world that a little book appears about the colt of the donkey? “But every firstling (colt) of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb (Exodus 13:13).” The colt of the donkey had special status from the days of preparation for the Israelites making their exodus from Egypt as it has to the last trumpet call before the final, last leg of the exodus into the kingdom.
Is it by chance a man has been made ruler over America, against all odds of doing so at this time, whose name is Trump, and perhaps the last trump with a voice, which is like unto the roar of a lion and sounds like a trumpet to rally the forces? The people and the army are his love. He shows nothing but disdain for anyone on either side of the political fence who is part of the elite filling the swampland with a gathering of those who want to bring forth a revival of Babel in a final world empire of a One World Order of government, religion and economic free trade. How the antichrist forces hate this man!
Free and liberated from the Word of God by steadily creeping progressive liberalism, in readiness for the last and final empire, America is choosing the religion of the Garden, which has become like leaven to the bread of this nation upon which her presidents have sworn to uphold the constitution of a nation under God. Free trade with all countries will keep us making deals with Satan – you know – the same kind of deals Satan tried to make with Jesus in the wilderness.
Making America great again comes only with one deal, and that deal is “No Deal”, for God never makes deals with Satan, with one exception; He uses the empires of Satan to chastise His people and to grow them to the point of reaching a place where they will be ready for the truth and the teaching, which only the Prince of Peace can teach. He alone can open the scrolls to new understanding and His name is Jesus.
When the last and final seal is opened, the trumpet calls are heard. Then the witnesses are heard and raptured before the bowl judgments are released on a world, which has trusted in the deadly lies of the serpent. Mankind has been tolerant of that killer, religion, but it would not believe the truth of God about its deadly power. He warned him continuously from the beginning of creation to the beginning of the Exodus, then again, when he had to deal with the religion of the Pharisees, and finally, dealing with His church of the end days, when the Spirit and the bride make the last call to come out of her to the fountain of living water if they so thirst for truth.
No leaven! No religion! No religion! (see Exodus, chapter 12)
The church age is about to draw to a close as we see the doors of church buildings closing around the world, while the One World Order pushes its way forward to the revival of the Roman Empire, which never died. It was kept alive by its Roman Emperor Constantine who saw the spread of what Rome called Christianity throughout the known world on Roman roads.
He would take his pagan priest of Rome and set him up in a grand cathedral with all his pagan practices blended into this new form of religion, a mixture of half-truths and sheer religious paganism. Now there would be a new high priest to whom he would give the name of Pope to rule over what he would call the church. Here you have it – a religion with a political capital in Rome, making it a government unto itself, amassing one of the greatest fortunes in the world, to fulfill the number of the beast, which is 666. Roman Catholicism became the glue that kept the two legs of the Roman Empire alive and well until it would be time for the revived, latter-day, Roman Empire to rise up many centuries later along the Way of the exodus from this world of empires ruled by Satan.
Daniel saw it all as the Lord pulled back the veil of time to allow him to see the future, enough to sicken him as he was shown the statue of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, which represented the four empires of the Babylonian system of empires yet to come. Gold, silver, bronze and iron mixed with clay would encompass them all to be known as Babylon the Great, mother of all religious harlots to God.
Even the Protestant movement attempted to break ties with Rome, but it did not take long to discover that she would soon look back in an attempt to overcome the schism between the two. Today, mother Rome beckons not only to her, but to all the other religions of the world. “Come!” she says, “We can work a deal.” How easy it is for Satan to entice Christianity, Judaism and all the other ‘isms’ to hold hands and yet claim at the same time to be soldiers of the cross!
The fact is, Satan has deceived nearly all, except the elect, into believing it is a crime to be intolerant of any religion. The trouble with that is that the world no longer knows the difference between fact and fiction and truth and religion, but the Lord is still revealing truth to His prophets, who are about to complete the final thunder of the Abramic covenant prophecy by being called to speak as the voice of the Lord.
Look up! For the hour is at hand for the trumpet to sound and announce that the captivity is over.
