Going Over the Cliff

Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out  from a different perspective

There is but one way for America to escape the proverbial cliff – fiscal, religious or political – and it is by returning to the truth after decades of the lies of liberalism having taken this nation to the very brink of disaster. God could not have made it clearer in His book of truth, which we embraced in this nation – or, better stated, our Founding Fathers embraced and we chose to reject for the sake of religious liberties based on the lies of Satan.

The name for this rebellion is liberalism, having no moral compass and no ensuing peace, where cults take authority over God’s Word. It is exactly what liberalism embodies – that thing, which is the nemesis of America’s liberty, called multiculturalism, the force, which drives nations to the brink on the edge of the cliff.


Jesus, the Word of truth made flesh, began His ministry by quoting the book of Isaiah – the book found to be alive and well to this day, in the caves of Qumran. No one can claim this book belongs to today’s religious systems. It is God’s Word written by the prophet of old, called Isaiah, who served as the voice of God, led by the Spirit of God, which is the Spirit of life. The book of Isaiah commands a major portion of the guidebook to the life of both persons and nations; it is like a mini bible within itself, consisting of 66 chapters, just as the Bible consists of 66 books.

Speaking of Jesus, Luke 4:14-15 tells us He began His ministry in the Galilee where the news spread and went out through all of the surrounding region, where, through His teaching, He was glorified by all. After this, He returned to Nazareth, the home of His youth, where, as the custom was, He went into the synagogue (the religious temple) on the Sabbath Day, and there, He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah, which He opened to the place where it was written, and began to read:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord (Luke 4:18-19).”

Luke continues by telling us; Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, “Is this not Joseph’s son?” And He said to them, “You will surely say this proverb to Me, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country.’” Then He said, “Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land; but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.”

Then all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way (Luke 4:20-30).

And so it was the religious sought to overcome Jesus, the truth made flesh, but they could not do so, no matter how great the force was against Him to send Him over the proverbial cliff. Those zealots of religion have no such power under their father, the devil. No one but Jesus, the truth, could wend his way back through such an angry, religious crowd, except by the power he would have from the God of truth.

Now, Jesus did not quote any more of this passage of Isaiah, at that time. For this was the acceptable year of the Lord for preparing the way to salvation for believers, so that they could be saved with the Lord, from the cliff of destruction.

The next sentence takes us to the day of vengeance of our God – the judgment we are beginning to see coming upon a world that has chosen to rebel against the truth of God, while accepting in its place the lies of religion coming from Satan and his minions. Mankind, today, stands on the brink of that cliff, and unless the truth is with us and in us, we will not have the power of Jesus to overcome and walk away, in the midst of the judgment, which will take liberalism and its entire crew over the edge. Had He continued reading the Scriptures, these would have been His words:

“To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations. Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the foreigner shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. But you shall be named the Priests of the Lord, men shall call you the Servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast. Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.

“For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, and will make with them an everlasting covenant. Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people. All who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.”

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations (Isaiah 61:2-11).

America had that opportunity placed on a silver platter before her, but she said “no” to the Bible in the schools and “no” to the name of Jesus in her military and, most recently, at the Democratic National Convention of liberal thinkers, the newly, elected government supporters in the United States of America said “no” to God. The nation did not want truth; it wanted liberalism from God, which Satan offered this world in the Garden of Creation.

So, now the day of vengeance has come and, without truth, America is being thrust to the brink, but without any hope of surviving the looming disaster on the edge of the cliff. The only answer for hope is to return to the God of truth and apply His Word to the nation; then, it just might survive. However, without the truth and the power, which is vested in Jesus, there is no other way to turn back from the cliff, and walk through the sea of multiculturalism, made up from the religious/states of this world.

A nation on the foundation of truth will be the only nation, which will survive the coming disaster, to be left behind in the judgment of God upon mankind. That nation will be spiritual Israel, the true apostolic church of Jesus Christ, against which the gates of hell shall not prevail. And there shall be no religion found in her midst.

Strange, is it not, that Jesus would tell us that a prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house? He could not do many mighty works in Nazareth or within His own nation because of unbelief (see Matthew 13:57-58). Will America be any different? If she chooses to trust in the liberal wrangling of religious-based politicians, the answer is “no”; if she chooses to return to the constitutions of her Founding Fathers, and trust in the truth of God, the answer is “yes”.
