Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

What is it that separates Israel and America from all the other nations of the world? To answer that question one has to go back to Babel to find out from where the nations came. Then one has to ask where Babel came from, and it all goes back to the Garden of Eden and to God’s creation itself.
Man chose not to accept the state of all things good, as God had created them, in order to compromise them with evil. On the day that Adam and Eve rejected the truth of God for the lies of Satan, he managed to corrupt them with a false belief system, which, today, we call religion. It separated them from God who is a holy God and One who cannot co-exist with evil, for He is a God of truth only. We call the result of that separation, liberalism, with man acting as a god unto himself. This is the lure of Satan – the deceptive lie, which leads one to believe that one can be like the Most High God without Him.
Of course, God backed away and simply said, in words such as this, “Go to it! It took six days to create this world in goodness for you and you have rejected it. Therefore, for every day I labored you will labor for a thousand years under the government plan of Satan who offers only pain, suffering, wars and no peace. Do not blame Me for your choices; for I know you will do exactly that!”
And so, the separation came, and eventually violence, killing and all manner of evil filled the world until God decided to destroy wicked men with a flood, and then start again with one man whose name was Noah; for he walked with God in righteousness. Noah and his family built an ark, at God’s command. He and his family entered into it, along with a male and female of the various species of the animal kingdom, before the rains came and the flood covered all of the earth, destroying the rest of mankind.
No sooner had the waters dried up and they had all departed from the ark, when man, with his own hands, began to build the first religious temple in an attempt again to reach into the heavens and to God in his own strength. This became the famous tower-building of Babel.
The sin of believing the lies of Satan still ruled over his life; there was no healing for man’s death sentence in the Garden. But God had set in place the Way back to the tree of life, when He shut off the Garden on the east side from religion. He had a plan whereby religion would never again destroy His creation. First, the strength of religious unity needed to be destroyed, with man being spread out into nations to cover the face of the earth. He also divided the tongues of men into different languages, for the purpose of separating and dividing them from one another.
He then created His own nation under His rule and His Law forbidding the worship of religious idols. His nation would be His people, called Israel, with whom He would demonstrate to the entire world His power to protect them from the religious onslaught of the other nations, but only in so far as the Israelites remained totally faithful and obedient to Him. God wanted to use His nation to demonstrate His glory to the world.
And, so, God established His covenant with one man called Abram with the promise of a blessing to all nations, which would see His kingdom rule returned to earth, as it had first been in the Garden of creation, before Adam and Eve sinned in rebellion to the truth. To his descendants of Israel, He gave the Law, which came to signify the failures of the flesh and the need of the spiritual changing of the waters in men’s lives for real victory over the antichrist spirit of religion.
This need was fulfilled in Jesus, who was born of both a virginal woman and the Spirit of God. He chose to come to earth to pay the blood price of death placed on man for his sin. God, Himself, suffered through the death of His Son for what should have been our suffering so we could become His family of sons and daughters once again.
The Lord took those twelve men, whom God gave to Him to teach the gospel of truth and life so they could go out into all the world and tell the people the good news. No one needed to die, except to this world, in order to live in the new and perfect plan of God in a world to come, one uncontaminated by sin. Jesus told His followers to pray for that kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven.
As the time began to draw near to the end of the 6000 years of satanic rule reaching its fullness, the Lord brought about an exodus of sorts, by leading the purifying church into Protestantism, protesting the controls of Romanism upon His church. He then led them across the waters to America, where the Puritans, as they were called, chose to have Him rule over them, rather than have the kings of this world, with their satanic, religious controls of the East.
England was as much a part of the religious empires as any other nation of the East. But God wanted America to demonstrate the liberty and abundance of all good things and the peace that comes to a people over whom He rules in the truth of His Word, the Bible. And America became the beacon of shining light to the world of liberty and prosperity in God and His truth, which is Jesus, the Word made flesh.
But just as Israel failed and was driven from her land to be scattered among the religious nations, whose idolatry and kings she loved more than she loved God, so, too, is America following in her older sister’s footsteps. Look at how the land of Israel is nothing more than a battleground today for warring religions. America is about to follow in her footsteps with her choice of Obama for President, a man who will hasten the process with illegal immigration and the importation of religious cults from the East.
Note the ratio that exists between the acceleration of these practices and the rapid decline of liberty and prosperity, with the agendas of Obama forcing God and the Bible out of the land. That which God calls an abomination, he calls an equal right. That which God calls a marriage of fruitfulness, he redefines as a marriage where no fruitfulness is possible. That which God calls truth, he rejects to tolerate the lies of religion and to respect them as if they were truth. That which was freedom of speech under God has now become a punishable crime. Truth is quickly becoming the forbidden, with a military that fought for God and liberty now facing the possibility of court-martial for mentioning the name of Jesus.
My friends, you have voted for such evil in the name of Christianity, but never in the name of the true apostolic church. You are choosing the dust aspect of the covenant of God with Abraham, just as Israel did before you. You will become nothing more than the sons of the bondwoman, Hagar, but it is for sure you will never share in the promise of the stars, which will shine with the light of Jesus in the heavens, sharing in the promise of Isaac as a son of the freewoman.
You, America, will bite the dust with the rest of that harlot Babylon, mother of all harlots and rogue nations, going all the way back to Babel and from there to the Garden. Yes, you will surely die, having had the throne within your grasp, but you rejected it to have a king of sorts, like other nations in the East. He was a lemon you wanted and he was a lemon you got, when you could have had Jesus, who walked with you from the start.
All nations before Him are as nothing, and they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless (Isaiah 40:17).
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).
For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise, which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar – for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children – but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written:
“Rejoice, O barren,
You who do not bear!
Break forth and shout,
You who do not travail!
For the desolate has many more children
Than she who has a husband.”
Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.” So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free (Galatians 4:22-31).
