Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. How does our universe begin? It begins, not with the created, but with God. He is the Creator of it all. Creation is a birthing process – the beginning of life and understanding. It requires time to birth, for birthing comes from unity in the womb to separation outside of it.
So, God laid down the conditions on day one for this process of Creation and of birthing. It began by His saying, “Let there be light”; and by His word there was light. His word and light became as one and both were good. Everything created had the foundation of what was good – the word and light. God’s process of Creation was a process that established truth as its foundation; for God’s Word is truth.
He divided that light from darkness and to the light He gave the name Day and to the darkness He gave the name Night. This was established on the first day of Creation; the evening and the morning were the first day in which separation had taken place from Night and there was no Night or darkness in creation. This state of things was good.
God established in the beginning that He is good and His holiness lies in light and the absence of darkness and in the rightness and the truth of His word. So, from evening until morning was as day and this was the beginning, which is the same as the ending. As we move from Genesis to Revelation, where the New Jerusalem comes down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband, it is stated, Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there) (Revelation 21:25). The Lamb of God becomes the Light of the Holy City, which is how our creation all began – in truth and in light. You could say that mankind is coming full circle around the Light.
God makes it very clear as to what is required for the foundation of His world created in goodness and in truth and light. Surely, the darkness hates the light and truth, for they dispel it. Here is the foundation for darkness. It has an antichrist spirit at its roots, which are formulated out of darkness – that void in which there is no truth or light.
From the foundation of truth, the word, and light, God made another separation. It was the separation of the waters by a firmament that lies between them dividing the waters under the firmament from those above it. And the firmament was called Heaven. This was the second day of Creation in which there was no night, for it again was a day that began in the evening.
Still, there was more about these waters beneath the Heaven; they had to be gathered together and separated so the dry land, which God called the Earth, could appear. The gathered waters beneath the Heaven were called Seas. The separation of the waters was complete and God saw that it was good. God had made dust available to Him for the creation of man. To acquire that dust, the absence of sea water was required. The salt of the sea water is deadly; the salt of the earth is godly.
These separations were essential before the necessities for life were called forth from the earth – the grass, the seed yielding herb and the fruit trees that yielded fruit, whose seed was in itself. This would become the food for life. Are not the herbs and the trees like man whose seeds are in themselves? All yield according to their kind. Can an apple tree yield a peach? Can a monkey’s seed yield a man? Can a rotten tree yield good fruit? No, all yield according to their kind, and God saw that this was good.
This abundance of the earth was set in place, but it could not grow until a mist went up from the earth to water the whole face of the ground and until man had been created to till it. This was the water that must come from above the heavens as opposed to the water that comes from beneath them (see Genesis 1:9) to which Jesus referred in John 3:5, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”
The foundation of Creation was increased from truth, the word, and light to include the water from above (the living water) for all things to be good. In the book of John, Jesus is identified totally with the foundation of Creation. He describes Himself as being each of these things and so all of them put together become the foundation of His church. There can be no darkness in it, for the gates of hell cannot prevail against it. By the nature of creation, which is identified by the process, the church then must become as a woman birthing.
God placed lights in the heavens to divide day from night. They would be for signs and seasons, and for days and years. Any fool can look to the heavens and read the signs of the times, yet Jesus had to ask the people how it was they could not read the signs of the times that deal with light and darkness in separation.
Is not the light of day the greater light, which rules over the light of night? Does Jesus not take authority over Satan? Those blinded by the darkness of religion might have trouble answering this question. Such a fool would be unable to see the significance of Jesus on the cross, with the fruit-bearing tree of life nailed by man over the dead wood of the tree of death, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Which tree really has the victory?
Then the word brought forth the sea creatures, the birds of the air and the beasts of the field, each according to their kind. Cattle are not reptiles, and reptiles are not birds. Unfortunately, men like Richard Dawkins have not come to this understanding yet and, though they are a part of our academia, they certainly are not our wise men.
Now came the crowning glory of Creation, only a day later than the creation of the beast of the field. There was no time for evolution to take place here. God made man in their image, that of the pluralistic Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He made him (man and woman) with eternity built into his being when the breath of the Spirit of life was breathed into his nostrils. He instantly became the son of God and His partner in Spirit and in love, whom God wanted for His marriage bed of heaven, to bring forth from the worldly marriage bed the good fruit of man’s seed – more sons for God. As man came from God to partner with Him, the woman came from man to partner with him.
The seed of man cannot bear good fruit as fallen sons of the beast living in the spirit of death; in the spiritual seed of the Son, Jesus, which is the Spirit of life, is found the only way to life in the coming kingdom. This is the real partnership between God and man, which requires the Spirit of life to birth sons for God. Labor under the sun alone cannot do it. Man must labor under the guidance of the Spirit to birth of the water from above and of the Spirit, to bring forth the good fruit of sons for God.
Now, all was created good and in harmony between God, man and the entire universe. This was God’s family created from the dust of the earth, to be the house of God. But Satan was waiting in the midst of the forbidden tree to lure man out of the light and back into the darkness of the same dust from which he had been taken.
It was the knowledge of evil that appealed to man more than the knowledge of that which was only good. The child cannot resist touching the stove that burns, though the parent warns not to do so, for it will burn for sure. Man did the one thing for which there is no forgiveness. He blasphemed the Holy Spirit that gave life by choosing the spirit of death. One does not treat the inheritance of the Father so lightly that one would throw away life and all that is good for darkness and all that is evil.
Inconceivable, is it not, that America, the land of the inheritance, has done just that? It has become a nation of fools who cannot either see or understand the signs of the seasons and the times. The fool has agreed to allow the foundation of truth to be torn up and cast out, leaving nothing but a foundation of shifting sand based on lies, the lies and shiftiness we have seen in the Presidents, Clinton and now, Obama. Yet, the fools will listen to them even seeing the one as a messiah instead of the ‘jackasses’ they really are. Truly, we must be sons of Adam and Eve, the rotten fruit not fit to share the throne of heaven.
Come out of the darkness and into the light! Only Jesus, the Light of the World, can save you from the coming night. From dust you came and back to dust you will go, unless you shut the door on religion and open the door to truth again. Creation taught us how to live a life above the sun, rather than beneath it, on a foundation of truth, rather than one of lies.
It is time for America to let the light back into the nation for, without it, her days are numbered until the day the smoking ovens finally consume her and she shall be no more. The inheritance of heaven, intended for God’s own beloved marriage partner, will be lost forever. There will be nothing more than a life lived under the sun with a future that amounts to a return to dust, only to be lost from the love and remembrance of God for evermore.
“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher, “all is vanity (Ecclesiastes 12:8).”
