Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

By His hand He created the world; from the dust He created man; by His breath He breathed life into him, and he became a living being. By His Word He created a path to the tree of life, along which all things were created good. There was also a path to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, where good was compromised by evil. This was the route to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which leads to death.
God created man in His own image – in His likeness. He created him male and female and blessed them, commanding them to be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth, subdue it and have dominion over the beast. God provided food for man and beast alike. He then looked upon His six-day labor of creation and saw that everything He made was, indeed, very good.
And the evening and the morning were a 24-hour period of light, which pleased the Lord God, with man being the recipient of His goodness. God rested on the seventh day from all His labor, ready to reap the harvest of human beings created in His image. This is the history of the world according to God’s plan, with a day being as a thousand years by any other plan.
The path to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil led to a forbidden fruit, which man was not to eat; for if he were to do so, in that day he ate of it, he would surely die. God’s plan was for him to be fruitful through the consummation of the marriage bed, spiritually, whereby he would bring forth the good fruit of sons and daughters for God. Instead, he disobeyed his Father and Creator and took the path to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The woman and the man, in disobedience to the one Law of life and death, ate of the forbidden, spiritual fruit leading to death. His ability to be fruitful, in turn, was corrupted, with the seed of man doomed to return to the dust from which he had been taken.
The woman claimed before God that she had been deceived, which was a lie for she had repeated to the serpent in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil the warning man had been given from God about eating from it. And, so, from the moment she ate of it the lie took reign in her life. The man immediately made excuses and blamed it on the woman and on God for giving her to him while, at the same time, rejecting any notion of taking responsibility for his own sin.
And so were birthed the words, “Where is God when bad things happen to good people?” The truth is, God is still where He always has been, but man has rejected His truth for the lies and false belief system, which come from the devil. It is called religion. With religion began the rule of Satan, which led to the religious/state governments of the world established by Satan to rule the world in a One World Order of liberalism from God.
At the same time, man was cut off from the fruit of the tree of life so he would not live eternally in an evil, sinful state. He had willingly rejected the Spirit of life, breathed into him, for the spirit of death. The ground was cursed and henceforth man would labor to eat by the sweat of his brow. The economic world resulted from the curse and the provision went to those who climbed the economic ladder, destroying anyone who got between them and their possessions. Inevitably, such a system led to war, pain, hardship and suffering for many while the stronger benefited and lived as kings, making the weaker servants and slaves to their desires and ideologies. So, stronger men took dominion over the weaker ones, instead of man taking dominion over the beast as he should have done in the Garden.
By God’s mercy and grace He provided a way back, which included a single-nation plan in which He would be the Ruler, in the midst of a sea of religious nations ruled by Satan. This nation included prophets to whom would be given the right to speak for God and to write the guidelines for becoming a part of the way back to the tree of life and freedom from the captivity of man to sin and death. It would include the prophecy of the words of the prophets, written in the scriptural form of the Bible, which we have today. It is the testimony of Jesus, given in the spirit of prophecy, leading men back out of the darkness and into the Light and to the tree of life that produces good spiritual food.
Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, He would pay the price of the wages of sin, which man bears at birth as the bad fruit of the corrupted seed of sinful men. Only Jesus, and no other man, was ever born of the Spirit of life, without the seed of man within Him to corrupt Him, though He was fully a Son of man as well as being a Son of God. Thus, by His grace and love, He was able to stand before God’s judgment and willingly pay the wages of sin for us; for He had shed His sinless blood that we might live.
However, unless we trust Jesus for our salvation, God accepts no other blood sacrifice except that which His Son made for us. Our corrupted, poisoned blood, once flowing with the Spirit of life in it, will now take us to the pit of hell, if we refuse the offer of Jesus Christ. With this offer comes the biblical plan for a restored kingdom of God on earth through the death of His Beloved Son and the one-time, one-offer deal of life for death, through the sacrificial Lamb of God.
Let us jump centuries forward and look at a world in which the nations of America were founded on the biblical foundation of truth, and not on religion like the other nations of the world. The Bible protected her borders from religions entering; for allegiance had to be sworn to God and country, leaving the old world of warring religions behind. But Satan found the open door of the Laodicean church of Christianity, which had a religious foundation rooted in the Romanism of Babylon. Deception did rule a people who believed in Christ, but did not trust in Him for salvation. They wanted the old combo of good and evil – a little truth and an ever-growing amount of the leaven of religion, which has come to replace biblical truth with lies, evil and corruption, even within the boundaries of the so-called church.
Now we have our answer as to why bad things happen to good people. We know exactly why the Middle East is in a state of religious upheaval and terrorism. Satan is about to set up his world empire of a one-world religion and a one-world economic system within a one-world government. Evil is coming to the six-thousand-year-completion plan, which could have been God’s six-day eternal plan for His kingdom on earth instead of the death plan of Satan, which God has used as a refining fire to bring forth His kingdom on earth.
God has always used evil to bring about good, as Joseph told his guilty brothers, who had sold him into Egyptian slavery. We will be tested, like they were, to see whether or not we will repent of our sin against the Father of creation or still prefer the lies, the deceit, the hardship, the pain, the suffering and the violence caused by the father of our choice, Satan, himself.
Will this be a New Year for you, which will lead you and your children back to the Bible, or will you remain in sin and simply add guns to the schoolrooms in an attempt to try and control violence rather than provide the solution for it? Guns never solved anything, only the Bible is the solution for the problem. Controlled evil is not a solution for life; only God and His Spirit of life, found in the Book of guidelines to life, will change hearts and the moral compass of society. We do not need a little more Christmas, but rather a whole lot more of the Spirit of life. In fact, we need to repent of our sin of driving God out of our land and out of our classrooms, and ask Him for His Spirit to come back into our lives and into our nation.
There is no other way back to the tree of life except through Jesus and a rebirth in our hearts of love for the living God. He is the only way, the truth and the life for a happy New Year. We have reached the midnight hour of decision, the time when the Titanic of the world empires is about to hit the frozen seawaters, which Satan has labeled global warming. They are all deception and lies for the empires are about to go down with this, the last iron empire of that great harlot, Babylon, mother of all harlots, born into the spirit of religion and death through the corrupted seed of Adam.
Satan is the master of deception through lies, but the God of truth still sits on His throne. By His Spirit, He led men to write the Bible of truth, outlining the growth of sin through religion and the growth of the house of Israel, the house of God, set on its church foundation of truth made up of apostolic, living stones of which Jesus is the Cornerstone. There are no tooled, Masonic stone buildings in this church, only people of truth, born again of the Spirit of life because of a heart response to truth.
This is the year of decision. May yours be a happy New Year based on truth, leaving the lies of religion far behind. For we are at the dawn of the seventh millennium of history and, true to God’s Word, Jesus will return and set up the Sabbath rest for those who choose life in Him and reject the death of Satan and his religious idols, which always lead to death.
The choice is, and always has been, yours as to whether or not bad things happen to good people. May you make the right choice so that you and yours may have a very happy New Year!
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them (Deuteronomy 30:19-20).”
