Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

And when do you think that might be, when God comes forth in wrath? A good guess would be when, after having created a nation to be His people for the enjoyment of His bounty and liberty, she shouted back in His face, “No God!” while choosing her presidential candidate. What she is saying is that she wants to be like the other religious nations, which do not have a foundation of truth, like Israel and America were given.
This nation, America, wants to move onto a foundation of shifting sands, so she can be like the religious/states of the East. She has chosen to fall under the control of the most powerful of them all, which engage in wars in order to create religious/state empires, by wielding the sword of the powerful over that of the weaker.
The end result is that the world, ruled by Satan’s religious order, is now moving rapidly toward the ultimate rebellion of man’s sin, as it progresses along the broad road to the One World Order, the same religious/state/order that went into action the moment Adam and Eve rejected God’s truth for the lie. The fruit of this tree was evil, which was added to the goodness of God’s creation, to corrupt every aspect of it – Adam, the woman and the earth. For, if Satan is the beast, then mankind entered into the realm of becoming little beasts, with the goats on the left. And the left is easily identified today by governments leaning in varying degrees toward the liberalism of the left. The ultimate destination of such governments results in the ‘desolation’ of the nation.
“The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined. Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate (Daniel 9:26-27).”
Can any of us imagine anything worse than long periods of solitary confinement? Yet, this is exactly what God promises to sinful people who reject the life He has breathed into them here on the earth, which He created for them to enjoy in peace and safety from any and all destroyers. The solitary state of death in sin is even worse, for it is the destruction of all that we know, which comes with the good life in joy and peace. It will be replaced by confinement in decayed houses where the beasts and reptiles dwell and where there is confusion and emptiness. In place of a garden, thorns will grow there.
Rebellion against God turns a paradise into an empty shell of formlessness in a void of beauty. Solid ground becomes like the bogs and marshlands inhabited by the creatures who live there. This is exactly what happens when the judgment of God falls on a nation that has rejected Him – His truth, His light, His way to the kingdom, His life and His Son. If my word on this is not good enough for you, then turn to Isaiah, chapter 34, and see what God’s Word has to say on the matter.
We have always been allowed to make the choice, as God’s people, between truth and religion (the belief system established in the Garden by sin) and between the blessing and the cursing of His Law. By keeping His Law, as we covenanted to do within our Constitutions of America, we were blessed and have known the joy of homes where pure water ran freely and tables were bounteous. We knew the ease phones and cars brought to our lives and the pleasure of wine with meals. We knew the security our children had in playing outdoors and the enjoyment of friends with whom to share our feast days. We knew what it was to have a warm shower after a hard day’s work.
But, then, we grew fat and complacent, telling ourselves that we were like God. Pride filled our minds until we no longer wanted a God who provided it all; we could and would do it on our own, we told ourselves. “No God” became the mantra with our rights taking effect as the law while, at the same time, the Law of God was being torn down from every public place where it might remind us of who really rules this nation. We had just snatched a huge piece of fruit from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil, as Satan entered our minds to tell us that we did not have to believe God. We could be like Him by knowing evil along with the good He provided for us at creation.
Now Satan was very wily, indeed, and a good deal smarter than we have been in our denial of the very existence of God. The secular mind has carried us to the limits of our depravity in rebellion to Him. Even in our pathetic state, the cross still stands and the resurrection still works for our salvation so that we can come out of our animal state of mind, which has no understanding at all. Our blood would be required of us if Jesus had not shed His in our place, to then go to the Father and plead the case for His flock of dumb sheep, which continually follow bad shepherds to the brink of the cliff.
The secular priests of Satan, in their ungodly rebellion of unrighteousness, deny the gift of the breath of life from God, and they work against minds and nations to capture them with the same lies of religion, which conquered Eve. Though it is the tongue, which is so deadly, it is the Word of God, which is the sword needed to put an end to evil. By simply speaking the words, “Let there be light”, God was able to dispel all darkness and take the world out of the desolate state of a void and formlessness into a Garden of beauty where Jesus walked with man in peace. He will return for His own who want light more than they want desolation in the bogs and marshlands where darkness rules.
Until His church is ready and standing on the truth, He will not bring the desolation upon the workers of evil without her separation from religion, which will cause a sharp division between the two sides. When you hear a church witnessing to truth and denying religion, along with seeing the signs of His coming, which we are now already seeing in the world, then “look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near (Luke 21:28).”
“Search from the book of the Lord, and read (Isaiah 34:16).” I would suggest you read the entire chapter as a prelude to reading the entire book. Here in this chapter, is given the description of the fatal doom of a nation under God, which rejects Him and His Word. It is all about mansions, but ones in paradise rather than in this world, as opposed to a dwelling place among the beasts and snakes of the bogs and marshlands.
“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 (Deuteronomy 30:19).”
