Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

Is the modern church not an off-shoot of Solomon’s temple, which forces us to ask the question as to whether or not it has been dethroned with him? It has many priests of Political Correctness rather than biblical correctness, just as he had many wives who worshiped foreign gods rather than the God of Israel.
Has the church not also been created by a Masonic-type of building program devised by priestly hands, the skill of which was originally learned at the throne of Satan, where the King of Tyre was seated? In building the temple for God, Solomon set in place the same building program, upon which rests the foundation for the modern Christian church.
The stones are tooled, an act forbidden by God at the time when Moses was instructed by God in the thick darkness, the thundering, light flashes and the sound of a trumpet on the smoking mountain where he received the Law. The people stood afar off in fear, but Moses heard God’s voice and related God’s message as directives to the people. They were instructed to make no gods beside Him, either of silver or gold. The people were to make an altar of earth for the Lord on which they would sacrifice to Him, burnt offerings and peace offerings.
He said that in every place where He records His name He would come to the people and bless them. But if they were to make a stone altar, it was not to be built of hewn stone, for if they used a tool on it, they profaned it by the works of their hands. Nor were the priests to go up the steps to God’s altar so that their nakedness might not be exposed (see Exodus 20:22-26). Was he not pointing to the elevated position of a prideful priesthood?
How many millions of priests do we have today in the religious system who take the title of Reverend? Do they not elevate themselves over the people, which is a shameful thing to do before the Lord? Do many of them not do so in buildings made of tooled stones by the works of men’s hands? But the Lord tells us that man has been given dominion over the works of the Lord’s hands, not ours. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands (Psalm 8:6).
Jesus set up His church on an entirely different foundation from that which we erroneously call the Christian Church. He did not leave it up to Constantine of the Roman Empire, as a part of the Babylonian system, to build His church. This would mean that He, like Solomon, had gone the route of dependency upon the King of Tyre whom Ezekiel tells us represented Satan.
This particular Phoenician king was heavily into the world of trade and finance. He was a real merchandiser of sea trade, over the sea, upon the shores of which Tyre was located. One could compare it to the World Trade Towers, which were located in New York, a city located by the sea, in which is conducted a great deal of trade by sea.
What could be clearer than the picture Ezekiel paints of the fall of Satan from God’s sanctuary because of his trading practices? “You defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trading; therefore I brought fire from your midst; it devoured you, and I turned you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all who saw you (Ezekiel 28:18).”
How much time is spent and effort made by the Christian church to sell the works of its own hands, through bazaars, dinners, tickets to church theatre, tracks, books, carved images, DVDs, videos and so on goes the list? Is it not fully into the number 6, representing the economic 6 of the 666 mark of the beast, alongside of the 6 of religion, with all their religious practices and belief systems based on the belief that the works of their hands and the goodness of the church-going people will get them to heaven?
And that leaves the last 6 of an alliance, which signifies Satan’s empirical government system. Tax-dollar exemptions place the mark of the beast on the churches as they shut their mouths to truth and embrace the liberal government position of Political Correctness driven by a government policy for multiculturalism.
It becomes very clear that there is a major sickness in the church when she agrees to forsake the name of Jesus in public prayer. The military chaplains bow to Satan and remain silent before Jesus who is the only One who can take us to the Father in prayer. How dare they disgrace His name in such a way!
A huge bulk of the Christian priesthood is now agreeing to take down the cross for the sake of Political Correctness that they might not offend the Muslim world. Yet, they show no sign of offense when Muslims come into God’s land of America, set themselves up in communities such as Dearborn, Michigan, and demand that church bells no longer ring out to offend Muslim ears. How dare the church sing “Onward Christian Soldiers!” when it is made up of nothing more than jellyfish, without a marching bone in their bodies!
And so God will pass by our jellyfish priesthood, which is too busy merchandizing and being religious to know it has passed into the valley of the dolls where Eve is its mother and Adam, its spiritual role-model. The priests are far from being the stones of the church, which Jesus built without any tools being used upon them. He washed His stones clean by the living water of the Word, which freed them from religion, and left them ready to roll into the nations with the truth. Political Correctness is a government-induced procedure, which results in God’s people offering more than their due to Caesar, while refusing to give to God that which is due Him.
And this brings us back to Ezekiel, chapter 28, where all of this is described by taking a look at Israel, a nation surrounded by her gentile enemies whose gods she honored while, at the same time, she would not honor the God who had chosen this nation to be a burning torch to the gentiles.
Now the smoking oven is closing in upon this nation and upon spiritual Israel. Neither will enter the land by holding the hands of corrupt priests and rabbis who are like blind bats leading blind sheep to the edge of the cliff of destruction with the mark of the beast clearly printed upon them, the full mark of the number 666.
So much is being played out before our eyes as Jerusalem becomes the target in a sea of religious/states, which surround her with their gods for which she has always lusted in the past. God warned her about making alliances with such nations. But the hearts of the nation and the spiritual nation have been turned toward trade with them. They have embraced the spirit of worldliness and dependency upon the world kings and their religious priesthoods rather than on God and His High Priest, Jesus, the Cornerstone of the un-tooled stones in which there is no Political Correctness.
“… Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Sidon; I will be glorified in your midst; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I execute judgments in her and am hallowed in her. For I will send pestilence upon her, and blood in her streets; the wounded shall be judged in her midst by the sword against her on every side; then they shall know that I am the Lord.
And there shall no longer be a pricking brier or a painful thorn for the house of Israel from among all who are around them, who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord God.” ‘Thus says the Lord God: “When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles, then they will dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob. And they will dwell safely there, build houses, and plant vineyards; yes, they will dwell securely, when I execute judgments on all those around them who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God (Ezekiel 28:22-26).”’ ”
