Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

Dead or Alive

The words, ‘The Dead Sea Scrolls’, are an anomaly; there is nothing dead about the resurrected writings of Isaiah, as true and as perfect today as the day in which they were copied, and as the day in which they were written by Isaiah himself. The chapters, Isaiah 7 to 12, give a very clear picture of the world situation in the final days, beginning with a rebellious people, and the role of the prophesied Messiah. At His second coming, He will set up His throne on earth and rule with His blessed remnant, which has maintained His truth throughout the centuries of rule by religious states.
The spirit of the day is defined by the rivers, which take us back to the rivers of Genesis, chapter two. The empire-building nations are fed by the rivers representing the destructive spirit of the devil; if one drinks of them, one will surely die. They are the same spiritual waters that took Adam and Eve down. So, Satan hates the book of Genesis, since one might read, eat and drink of it to become wise with understanding.
The prophecy of the book of Isaiah must also put a dagger to the heart of the devil, by prophesying his decline. The king of Israel has placed his trust in the ruler of the very empire, which wants to destroy his nation. He trusts in him when he will not trust in the Lord. Obama bows to the enemy, and, by hand-outs and trade with it, he establishes the very enemy, which wants to destroy America. Such misplaced trust, will find no place in the coming prophesied house of David; for the enemy in which King Ahaz of Israel trusted, and in which Obama trusts today, are nothing but the stubs of smoking firebrands on the verge of being extinguished.
God wanted Ahaz to ask for a sign, that this is truth concerning the future of the enemy, but he refused, so God provided His own sign of the coming of Immanuel who would change the picture on earth as He brings in the kingdom under His rule in which Ahaz will have no part. This was some 700 years prior to the advent of Jesus into the world. Isaiah particularly points to Ephraim, and the crossover blessing of Israel taking place with the birth of a divine Son of a virgin.
The prophet also notes that it will take 65 years for Ephraim to be broken. Did the decision to partition what is often incorrectly called Palestine by the United Nations not take place in 1947? Could it be the year 2012 when the 65 years are completed? Are we not looking at an Israel of this world, today surrounded by her enemies, about to be broken, and an America, the symbol of the home of spiritual Israel through the crossover blessing placed upon Ephraim, also on the verge of being broken? Who else does the eastern world hate and want to destroy and wipe from the face of this earth, other than these two nations founded by God?
It was the corruption of Israel, which would cause her downfall, as will the same corruption cause the downfall of America. All the midnight meetings going on in Washington these days will ultimately be to no avail. It is the anger of the Lord, which is making plans against them. He has issued woes against those who call evil good and good evil, have put darkness before light, bitter for sweet, think themselves wise, justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away justice from the righteous man. They have rejected the Law of the Lord of hosts and despised the Word (the Bible) of the Holy One of Israel. Now, what better description could one give for the administrators of government in Washington, today?
Oh yes, it is the hand of the Lord, which is now stretched out against the fools in Washington who think themselves wise while calling that sensible, little group of patriotic, grey-haired men and women, called the Tea Party, the terrorists, who, in fact, love the land and its Constitution under God. At the same time, it is forbidden to call the real Muslim terrorists of the Middle Eastern nations the terrorists that they are, lest we should offend them.
So the anger of the Lord will bring the nations against America swiftly, and they will roar like a lion against her, like the roar of the sea as the light of America gives way to darkness. How long will this last? Until the cities are laid waste without inhabitants, the houses are without a man and the land is utterly desolate; yet a tenth shall remain with the holy seed being the stump of a cut down tree.
This is a people who had the river of life as the perimeters of the land as it was in the Garden, before sin was found in it. Now, the waters of Babylon shall overflow its banks onto the land, like the sea overflowed New Orleans, not to mention the number of cities the rivers overflowed in the heart of America, only this past year.
Counsel together, all of you who are meeting in Washington, but it will come to nothing before the wrath of the Lord! If they had feared the Lord of hosts, whose name they use so freely and do not hallow, He would not have become a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense to them. Why in the world did they not bind up the testimony and seal the Law? The truth and His Law are timeless and the only path to peace.
This promised Child of Man and Son of God is the One and only One upon whose shoulders rests the government. Shariah law is an abomination in His sight. Only of Him can it be said that His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. He will return to set up His kingdom on the throne of David, and of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. Only He can order it and establish it with justice.
Obama has attached the wagon of America to the wrong horse. He, along with the rest of his men in Washington, is leading it straight to edge of the cliff, where we will see this land of liberty fall down and into the grip of the One World Order of the twenty-first century. He has hitched the wagon of America to Satan’s horsepower, when the real power rests alone in the hands of Jesus, whose Word Obama has dared to challenge.
This is a man who refuses to turn to the Lord who will strike him, nor does he seek His advice. Therefore, head and tail shall be cut off – the head being the leadership, and the tail, as that of a serpent, representing the poor people who have been led to the edge of the cliff, only to be destroyed by their leaders. They have all become hypocrites and evildoers, with every mouth speaking folly.
Did Isaiah, the author of a portion of the so-called ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’, get it right or not? Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, of Obama’s so-called army of Progressives, said in a speech just two days ago, that there is no greater nation in God’s creation than America. I don’t think greatness can be a name applied to a nation, which, under this government’s leadership, forbids the children to pray to God in the name of Jesus. Furthermore, if the nation is part of His creation, why do this man and his fellow members of government refuse to allow the teaching of the truth of Creation to our children instead of endorsing the teaching of the lies of evolution?
Is this not a prime example of the double-speak and the hypocrisy to which Isaiah was referring? This same liberal leader is the very one who called the God-fearing, little old, patriotic men and women of America, the citizens and not the illegals – the terrorists. It seems to me that this man has a mighty big screw loose somewhere in his brain.
Beware of what lies ahead! For Isaiah has not gotten it wrong yet, and he speaks that ear-catching word, “Behold”, a term, which can be used to denote a maiden, mature and ready for marriage as opposed to one who is not. The time has come for the Lord to collect His true church and take it to Himself as a bridegroom would come for His bride when the Way is prepared. At the same time the prophet writes, “ For behold, the Lord will come with fire and with His chariots, like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword the Lord will judge all flesh; and the slain of the Lord shall be many (Isaiah 66:15-16).”
Watch out, you unclean institutions of Christianity! You come to the gardens of the Beloved of Song of Solomon with an idol in your midst, eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, of the religions of the world, which you choose by becoming a purpose-driven church, instead of choosing the Lord who went to the cross for His people. The Lord will not overlook your folly, for in Isaiah 66:17 the prophet prophesies that you shall be consumed with the others when the Lord returns to blast open the One World Order under Satan.
He knows the works going on in Washington today, to bring down a nation He established. The corpses of those who have rejected Him and transgressed against Him shall be gazed upon as being the men left of center, by those whom they have mocked and scorned as the right-wingers of the nation, the sheep on the right, who knew their Master’s voice. Well, there are only the goats on the left of the Lord and the sheep on His right. Isaiah tells us that the worm will not die in these bodies of the goats nor will the fire be quenched of the burning. They shall be an abhorrence to all who gaze upon them, who were once the mockers and sons of Satan.
On this note the book of Isaiah, a mini-Bible unto itself, draws to a close at the same time the governments of this world come to an end and the kingdom begins under the rule of the Lord, Jesus Christ. No ancient scrolls were ever more alive and well than the so-called ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’, which keep alive the words of the prophet, Isaiah, so prophetic for the world situation today.
