Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

For all those hundreds of years of history, we did not know that the world was round. We did not know it was on a course, turning as it circled the sun. Yet, was there any excuse for our not knowing? The answer is “No!” For had we looked to the Word of God, we would have seen that Isaiah announced prophetically to the world some 700 years before the time of Christ that the earth was round.
Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless (Isaiah 40:21-23).
Sadly, we listen to the secular message of the vessel, rather than looking to the words of the Potter, who makes it all happen. He has given us the most incredible book of living, prophetic words with a solid message of truth, which can be trusted above all else. As the Creator and Master over this earth should we not then look to Him for our direction?
If we were to look in the right places, we might recognize the theory of evolution for what it is – nothing more than a pile of trash, fit only for the dung heap. How the human mind can be so deceived is beyond me, when God’s Word is a blazing light of truth before us and one of those truths is this well-documented fact: The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God (Psalm 14:1).”
Did this earth, with its flowers, trees and animals of all sorts and kinds, just happen? Do you see dust coming to life in your hands at your command, without God? Can you attribute the act of birth as being anything short of a miracle? Are human life and the capacity for understanding merely happenstance evolving from a lower level of life of the beast, with no understanding? And where did the beast get its life?
What sheer and utter nonsense in a world, which fulfills the theory of thermal dynamics! In simple words, all things are breaking down ever so slowly, but surely, returning back to the dust. This does fit with the creation message of the Bible, which has been presented to show the destructive, destroying forces of evil, which come against the good works of God and take away life to reclaim man for the dust again, whence he came. Man is birthed of man; it is not a process of evolution. But man does return to dust, in a process one might call ‘devilution’.
Man just doesn’t seem to get the fact that the Holy Spirit of life is an incredible gift of the Father, God. Has the world ever produced any evidence of getting something out of nothing? All things begin with a substance of one sort or another, which in itself needs a starting point. The starting point comes from God who has no beginning and no ending, continually creating a new thing.
Satan and his opposing force of death bring about only endings; for he is terminal with no ability to create, only to counterfeit that which God does. There is truth in creation but there is no truth in the counterfeit. It is based on lies and, therefore, has no power to stand, such as we see with the foolishness of evolution, a theory of no beginnings; it is completely dependent upon the substances created by God.
If God created the heaven and earth, why in the world would we want man, instead of God, to rule over them? All things should begin with prayer to God and end in thanksgiving, for He is the Giver and Creator of all good things. He spent six days creating the heavens and the earth and He saw everything that He had made, and indeed, it was very good. On the seventh day He rested from all the works, which He had done. This day He blessed and sanctified it.
Would it not be likely that this day would be the day upon which Satan would attack? Did God not then test the will and the desire of man’s heart? He had created him and had given him the rules of government, and now the outcome would be determined for the course of the next 6000 years of history, by the choices man made. There would be a struggle between God and Satan, a spiritual battle, which would be engaged for the souls of men with man choosing the direction of his own fate, each and every one of them (see Genesis 32:24-28).
God allows bad things to happen to good people because, like little children who need to be broken of their will, they often have to be allowed to go free by Him and touch the burning stove in order to finally heed the warning that a hot stove burns, and when it does, it hurts. There is no better way to learn about burns than by being burned. History is the story of God bringing man through the burns, with scars to show for them. But it will be man’s choice as to whether or not he will come through the testing victoriously. God cannot be blamed. Hence, He requires repentance for our sins for which we must take ownership.
Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, were perhaps not using the seventh day as a day for glorifying and praising the Lord God for His goodness, with thankful hearts, but, instead, were out cruising in the area of the forbidden tree. Now, the wiser thing would have been to never even venture onto the broad road that leads to death. If they had not gone into forbidden territory, they most certainly could not have been led into the deception, which, in turn, led to sin causing death.
Indeed, God has borne the sin of man on His shoulder, like the onyx stones on the shoulders of the ephod of the high priest of Israel, and has paid the heavy cost of death for man who could not pay the price of death for himself and still live. Yet, how do we show our thanks to our Lord and Master? Do we not respond with the mind of a fool by suggesting to any fool who will listen that man was not created, but rather has merely evolved?
The beauty of the truth is that the mantle of salvation comes in only one size fitting all, except for those with swollen heads, over which the mantle will not be forced. These are the people, who are guided to self by Satan, suggesting they are their own source for achieving good things, without having a need for a God who, when He prepared the heavens, drew a circle on the face of the deep, established the clouds above and strengthened the fountains of the deep. He, and He alone, assigned the sea its limit so that the water would not transgress His command when He marked out the foundations of the earth.
The voice of wisdom is for the sons of men and cries out to the fools to be of an understanding heart and to listen, for the Word of God speaks of excellent things, right things and truth only, never speaking the lies of Satan’s religion. Understanding stands where the paths meet, the way to life and the broad road to destruction. Blessed are those who choose the way of the stones of the church as opposed to the road of brick, which has its roots in the religion of Babel. They will find life in the way of God and those who sin against Him wrong their own souls because of hatred for God coupled with the love of death (see Proverbs, chapter 8).
America stands this day where the pathways meet. The sea was unleashed upon her in accordance with the command of God (see Proverbs 8:29). Sand was thrown in her face for she had been offered the inheritance of Abraham, yet, her leaders were ready to listen to a people who said, “No God”. The balance hangs in the choice between “Yes God” and “No God”, an answer of either obedience or disobedience.
If it is evolution you want as a nation, then most certainly you will get it and return to the dust whence you came to learn for yourself that something does not come from nothing. All things begin somewhere, and man only became a living, breathing, human being, when God breathed the Spirit of life into the nostrils of the man He had formed from the dust, to set the process of life in motion.
There is no other source than God for the Spirit of life, and He who gives it can just as easily take it away. It is all up to man whether or not he wants this gift or would prefer to return to the dust. He will come to know just how foolish he was in allowing himself to be deceived into believing in evolution, to the point of crying “No God”. A liberal education leads to a liberal, political platform and ultimately to a nation without God.
