Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

Nineveh was the capital of the Assyrian Empire, and the city, which the message of Jonah caused to turn to God. It was the New York of its day in size and the world commercial center of civilization. You could say that it was the World Trade Center of its time.
Time had moved on some 150 years after Jonah when we see that Nineveh had fallen away to become a city full of lies, robbery and prostitution. It was about to be weakened and conquered because of the flood waters from a river, which ran through the city, overflowing its banks and breaking down its flood-gates and its wall, allowing the enemy to enter in. Has the removal of the Bible at the entrance ports of America not broken down her outer borders of protection, with New York being the gateway to the nation for immigrants?
It was time for the prophet Nahum to come onto the scene, prophesying approximately three years before Nineveh’s fall. It was a short span of time, about 150 years between its becoming a godly city, to which God had sent Jonah to preach, and becoming a harlot spiritually to Him, for which Nahum gave the warning of judgment. Is this any different from 19th century America and the itinerate preachers who came to preach truth to her people from pulpits aflame with righteousness, while education rested in the hands of a clergy, which taught that morality and virtue were important issues?
At this time, Alexis de Tocqueville, a 19th century French statesman, historian and social philosopher traveled the land of America and came to a profound conclusion. He wrote that America was great because America was good, and if America ever should cease to be good, then America would cease to be great (reference: America’s God and Country – by William J. Federer).
Somewhere, between the time he wrote those words and the moral cess-pool, which we see today in America some 150 years later, such as that which existed in Nineveh, some 150 years after Jonah in the day of Nahum’s prophecy, de Tocqueville’s words are becoming a reality for America, just as Nahum’s words became a reality for Nineveh. Nahum warned that judgment was coming her way because of her wanton lust as a harlot and her lure and seduction as a mistress of sorceries, enslaving the nation by her prostitution and her witchcraft. As a city, which had been turned to God, it had taken another turn backward in the vilest kind of adultery, which led to her departure from the Lord (see Hosea 1:2).
What could have been a worse insult to our God than allowing the blight of the United Nations to settle into the city of New York, the gateway to the nation, setting up a house of prostitution and cults, ruled by Babylon the Great, mother of all harlots? At the same time the nation removed the Bibles from her borders. There could be no greater door-opener to Satan and his army of evil spirits than that of the U.N. It has allowed that little dictator, Ahmadinejad, who is bent on destroying Israel and America, to land on American soil and begin to spread his vile propaganda by television throughout the entire nation. This is not to mention the hundreds of other enemies of America who land regularly to meet at the U.N. for the purpose of discussing ways and means by which American sovereignty can be destroyed.
Do not think that judgment is not going to fall on this city as it fell on Nineveh. Already her World Trade Towers are gone and the floods are due to roll in over the city tonight, just as they rolled in over Nineveh to initiate her demise. The stock market was closed to the tune of some billions of dollars of cost; houses will be destroyed and property damage will occur to the tune of some more billions of dollars. Electrical power failures will cause businesses to close in one of the most populated centers in all of America, with the cost of lost sales amounting to billions of dollars. Is it possible the lights of Broadway will dim and then go out entirely as the flood waters spread their damage?
When God strikes, He knows exactly where and how to do it. “Behold, I am against you,” says the Lord of hosts; “I will lift your skirts over your face, I will show the nations your nakedness, and the kingdoms your shame. I will cast abominable filth upon you, make you vile, and make you a spectacle (Nahum 3:5-6).”
The nation is being judged for her harlotries and sorceries, which she is pouring out to other nations, so that she can corrupt them with her commerce, her witchcraft and her multi-cultism. Has the sorcery of Harry Potter not been pumped into the children throughout the entire nation and the world, making billions of dollars on sorcery while corrupting young minds with such a powerful form of Satanism? If the east coast receives her dues this week, hopefully, a big hole will be struck into the side of Halloween rituals, which could prevent another night of satanic worship for millions of children and leave the commercial world with a Halloween stock of ‘unsellables’.
Nahum tells us the Lord avenges and is furious about this kind of national sin. The weatherman tells us we are in for a ‘Frankenstorm’ of storms. Nahum tells us that the Lord will not acquit the wicked, but rather cut off the carved images of the cults we have chosen to love with multiculturalism, and He will dig a grave for this nation for being so vile. “I will cut off the carved image and the molded image. I will dig your grave, for you are vile (Nahum 1:14).” The weatherman tells us the damage is going to go all the way to Chicago. Could this be the October surprise, which has come from God, Himself, and not from the Chicago man?
The prophet describes the city after the judgment – she is empty, desolate and wasted, with hearts melting, knees shaking, much pain in every side of her people and all their faces drained of color. The harlot has sold out her own nation, destroying families as she goes by her sorceries. Nahum could well have been preaching to America; for her harlotry is the same as that of Nineveh and the judgment could well equal hers in the immediate days ahead.
As opposed to this judgment, the prophet tells us that the Lord will restore the excellence of His true inheritance, which America could have received if she had not had a wandering eye for the idolatry of Islam, along with that of Communism, Hinduism, Judaism and even Christianity, all of which have emptied out the true church and ruined her vine branches. She is about as dead in her tomb of religion as she can get, but God will revive her as she awaits the kiss of her Prince. He will restore her to the perfection He always wanted from His apostolic church and His bride of mankind (see Nahum2:2).
But as for the judgment upon the city – There is a multitude of slain, a great number of bodies, countless corpses – they stumble over the corpses – because of the multitude of harlotries of the seductive harlot, the mistress of sorceries, who sells nations through her harlotries, and families through her sorceries (Nahum 3:3-4).
