Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

The Olympic Games and the Babylonian System cannot be separated. They began together and they shall finish together. One is about the pride of man’s accomplishment using the gifts of God to edify self. The other is about the pride of nation exalting itself above the others and forcing itself upon them. It is called empire-building.
Empire-building is accomplished by man being exalted to a position of ruler-ship over his fellow man, instead of God ruling over man. This was a result of the sin of the Garden when government on earth changed from God’s plan to Satan’s plan, that is to say, until Israel threw a monkey-wrench into a world government under Satan.
The introduction again of God’s government started to take form with the tower-building (religious towers of man) of Babel coming down and God dividing the unitarian nature of the people into nations, scattering them over the surface of the earth. This served as an impediment to Satan’s goal of world ruler-ship in conjunction with a united religion, which worships the gods of this world. At the same time it opened the door for God to separate from the divided gentile nations a nation, which He would bring unto Himself to demonstrate to the world the superiority and liberty of a government ruled by His truth rather than by Satan’s religion. He called that nation Israel.
Today, in the unity of nations (U.N.) the ultimate conditions exist for the infiltration of the demonic to make way for the one ruler over all, the pretender to the throne of God, called the Antichrist. It is his desire to replace the Christ, before Whom God declared we shall have no other gods. The U.N. is the base for the return of the nations to the unity of Babel, whence comes the name of Babylon, mother of harlots, which followed in the footsteps of Adam and Eve, who chose the first belief system apart from the truth to lay the foundation of religion with a lie.
Make no mistake! The rising up of the United Nations signifies the early stages of the coming One World Order, whereby only the gods of this world will be worshiped. This makes it imperative that the Law and God of Israel be eliminated from the face of this earth, once and for all. Likewise, it means America under God, as a world power, must be destroyed and, since God is invincible, the destruction must come from within by transformation of the psyche and hearts of the people.
Israel must be wiped from the face of the earth and America must be transformed from truth and the Law of God to religion, as did the serpent transform Eve’s psyche and belief system. Adam simply was a pushover, very little different from Esau, concerning the value he placed on his inheritance at creation.
So, how can the Olympics be tied to the U.N., which plays its part in the rise of the final empire of the Babylonian System, the Revived Roman Empire? They both honor many pagan gods but not the one and only true God of Israel. They both use a pagan cultural stage for this purpose, as did Canada in the 2010 Olympics here in America, a country under God.
Strange, is it not, how President Obama and Prime Minister Harper practice the same hypocrisy as that which exists in most Christian circles with both seen carrying Bibles, swearing on the Bible and calling themselves Christians while, at the same time, doing everything in their power to denounce the truth of God’s Law? Is this not the hypocrisy for which the American people voted to rule over them? So, is this not exactly the kind of government we presently deserve? It apparently is an easy thing for a people, calling itself Christian, to honor pagan idols in the land.
God neither sleeps nor slumbers. Take a good look at the city of Detroit, the city of the car industry that so helped to create the wealth of America. There are areas where large buildings, factories and houses are deserted. Do not think for a minute that it is not a sign of that which God built up as Ruler over this land and will allow, as easily and quickly as it went up, to come down.
America will become as a third-world country with cold, empty, deserted towns and cities like the Russian towns and villages portrayed in the 1965 movie version of Dr. Zhivago, which resulted from the Russian socialist revolution. We will see the same degree of desolation coming to our neighborhood as a result of enforced socialism in the West.
Let us take a look at the Bible, in particular the book of Exodus, chapters 19 and 20, and the giving of the Law. God spoke to Moses concerning the house of Jacob and the children of Israel. It was about what He did to the Egyptians while at the same time bearing Israel up on eagles’ wings and bringing her to Himself. If the people would obey His voice and keep His covenant, then they would be His treasure.
But the foolish people spoke words in opposition to their hearts, exactly like our leaders are doing today, as they glibly replied in words such as these, “Oh yes Lord, You can count on us to do Your will.” Do our leaders not lie in the same manner as Israel did when they tell us the good things about their strong faith (in what, I am not sure) and, once elected, proceed to destroy everything that keeps a nation within God’s good graces? To state that I believe, but with no hint of what it is one believes, perfectly suits the hypocrisy of the Canadian people, although I would venture to say that they do not know what they believe, if anything at all.
The theme of I believe permeated the Olympics, but there was no attempt to complete the statement, for multiculturalism has been inflicted upon this nation, while the Laodicean church was asleep in its pews. Now we believe all sorts of trash, which we call faith, as our athletes so diligently compete using their physical attributes from God to honor the pagan gods of Olympus.
But then, God told Moses to get down from the mountain-top place of meeting and get the people cleaned up, for they were so filthy that if they were to dare to approach Him in their filth, He would break out against them and many would perish. He applied this message even to the third day, which points to today. For He was seen in the thick cloud like a smoking oven, as envisioned in Abraham’s dream, the judgment, which would come upon His people if they should fail to be His torch bearers; to do so would mean rejection of Him and loss of their liberty in Him.
That is exactly what happened in these Canadian Winter Olympic Games when we, a people under God, chose to embrace the religious captivity of the other nations, accompanied by the desire to carry the torch of their gods. The tremendous outpouring from the hearts of Canadians for the Olympic torch, displayed a passion rarely seen for the torch of liberty. We are called to hold it high for the glory of God in this land of the free, so that the entire world can see Who is responsible for our liberty. Our soldiers of WW 11 gave their lives for the cause of liberty under God, holding high the torch for this pathetic generation to carry, even though it is very undeserving of such a great blessing and honor.
And God repeated His warning a second time for these days of the forth-coming judgment. He followed this with the giving of the Law putting the fear of the Lord in His people so they would not sin. Then came the stern message about having any other gods beside Him – neither gods of silver nor of gold, and the people were warned to not build altars of stone on which tools were used to profane it.
So, what do we see as the symbol of the Canadian Olympics? The athletes and Canadian public, alike, embraced the humanist symbol and logo Ilanaaq, the modern form of the Inuit Inukshuk, a statue of stone, treating it as though it has human god-like characteristics. The truth of the matter is that it is a native Inuit, pagan idol of stone, which speaks of humanism and peace, the sort of stuff that comes as bilge from the United Nations.
“Nor shall you go up by steps to My altar, that your nakedness may not be exposed on it (Exodus 20:26).” And so the altar was raised by steps to the height of the gold to show the ultimate pride in man, raising himself up like a god, not honoring the God Who rules over Canada, as he receives the honors of the gods of Olympus. By this act he reveals the same nakedness as that revealed by Adam and Eve. The Olympic races began with naked bodies racing against each other, and so they shall finish with God exposing the nakedness of prideful mankind for all to see as man rushes to his death.
Yes, the pagan, religious-state-based Olympic Games ride side by side with the pagan, religious-economic-political-based Babylonian System. The five Olympic rings could not be more symbolic of the Games’ relationship to the four empires, the final black one being the fourth revived empire with the completion of the fifth in total darkness. Each one is like a colored ring of counterfeit light, using the brokenness of the rainbow, Jesus, the Light of the World broken for you and me, until the final world-wide empire, in the fullness of the sin of the gentiles, brings darkness upon the entire world.
The biblical book of Hebrews describes the great race of faith, pointing to the spiritual foot race of which Paul spoke. This is the real race of man against time to reach the goal of righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, with the medals for the winners being handed out in heaven and not in this world.
It is this race of which the Olympics are clearly the counterfeit as man sets his sight upon the honors and medals of this world, while performing for the gods of this world. Did the Philistines not force Samson to perform blindly in honor of their gods in their temple as a result of his great sin against his own God? I wonder if the days lie just ahead when our Canadian gold medalists will be required to perform in the same kind of enforced slavery to the religion they have served at this Olympics, as the ultimate kind of mockery and shame brought upon them by the Antichrist of the future.
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin (Hebrews 12:1-4).
