Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

One of the most prevalent misconceptions of the age is that there is no Satan. Whoever told you such a thing, and by what authority can you justify such a statement? You are left with two choices: you can accept either the words of men as truth, or you can accept the Word of God as the truth.
The Bible begins in chapter one with the creation and, specifically, with the creation of man, with limited ruler-ship in the world under God who sets down the rules of life and death in the Book of Life. For God’s interest was in preserving man, in a way that a Father might protect and raise his sons and daughters; He wanted His human creation to be fruitful by providing children for Him through the union of one man and one woman in the marriage bed. So in the second chapter of Genesis He established the institution of marriage as that between a man and a woman to become a one-flesh union of husband and wife.
The Spirit of God and of life entered into the mind of man, loosening his tongue to speak truth. The spirit of Satan and of death entered into the head of the serpent to loosen its tongue to speak lies. The serpent lurked in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was a tree of spiritual confusion, where it waited to deceive man regarding the truth. Satan’s aim was to sully the light of truth with the leaven of lies, which would then grow to fill the entire creation with darkness.
God made it clear that there was no room in His world for any such compromise, which lies bring to the truth. The holiness of God cannot dwell with the darkness of Satan who is also known as the devil, the serpent of old and the beast. They all exist as one to pull man out of the light God shone upon the earth and back into the darkness and the dust whence he came, being, once again, without shape and form. He would become as the void and formlessness of the universe in darkness.
And, so, in the third chapter of Genesis, the lying of religion begins in an attempt to liberate man from God and take him into the darkness of Satan. The spiritual battle was on between good and evil, rightness and wrong and life and death. The Word of God brings light in the person of Jesus, for He is the Word made flesh. One cannot possibly trust in Jesus and not know for sure that there is a devil; his works are found in every book of the Bible running side-by-side with the works of the Lord. If the tree existed in the Garden, then it follows that it exists in this world in which the Garden was placed.
Satan seeks to destroy man, and Jesus comes to destroy Satan and save His precious creation of man. Thus, the hatred of Satan is directed at the Lord’s much beloved human-kind. What better way to destroy man than to render the marriage bed fruitless and man, himself, impotent with respect to bringing forth sons and daughters for God, who would be the fruit of His desire. Such fruit can only come forth in the Spirit of life and never of death; for God is the Spirit of life, and Satan is the spirit of death, with the spiritual battle raging between the two.
Satan employs two very obvious ways of accomplishing his ends; they are through the act of homosexuality and the practice of abortion, or the killing of the pre-borns in the womb. And of what is it that our liberal courts are ruling in favor today, if not the legalization of both the abomination of homosexuality at the heart of a protected, special-rights group, and the taking of human life, already formed by God in the womb? The courts are full of supercilious little men and women, who think they have the right to redefine marriage, but they do not. Marriage always will remain as God created it to be – a unity between a man and a woman, between a husband and a wife; anything else is a farce and complete fabrication created by man, and meaningless before God.
Pre-borns are not the mere tissue of animals but rather, they are the planting by God of a living, human being in the womb. You and I were once these same pre-borns, who could have been aborted at the whim of another human being, before we had any say ourselves over the lives we so cherish. It is the same way the woman was formed who demands the right to decide over another life, which is living, moving and pulsating within the protection of her own body.
Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb: “I am the Lord, who makes all things …(Isaiah 44:24).”
To choose to kill such a pre-born is in complete rebellion against the will of God. The life of the child has already been set in motion, an action, which cannot be stopped; for the Lord God will take the unborn back to Himself, but He will leave the murderer behind, as there are no murderers in the kingdom of heaven. The woman most certainly will be given the right to choose, but it will be between life and death for herself and not for the child.
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie (Revelation 22:14-15).
No true church of Jesus could ever dismiss the devil or Satan, any more than Jesus who acknowledged him and allowed Himself to be led to the cross by Satan’s religious men and the government of his religious empire. The religious empires of this world are the means by which Satan controls the world of which he is the prince. Thank goodness for the cross, which gives Jesus the authority to take the world back, having defeated the dead wood of the forbidden tree as He hung nailed there. He set His precious people free of the chains of death by which Satan holds the world captive.
Yes, this is what the exodus of Israel from Egypt (the first religious empire of 7 world empires, with 6 to come) was all about – setting God’s people free from the chains of captivity to death. Liberty can only come through the power of the Lord to liberate His people and leave the dead, religious empires behind. He brought about the miracles of the Exodus to take His people back to the foundation of truth established by the government of God in the Garden before a lie led to shame and a cover-up.
What is it that we are watching on the American, political scene if not the liberalism of the left embroiled in the same picture of lies and cover-up, which took place on the dawn of creation in the Garden of Eden? However, unlike Adam and Eve, shame is sadly missing from this group, or the situation could possibly be rectified. We are in an age of shamelessness, which now accompanies the lies and cover-ups of those driven by the spirit of liberalism from God.
According to the pattern we are seeing, it would seem that the devil has full rein in the White House and its administration. The spirit of Satan has overflowed its waters into every branch of government as tributaries from the source waters of the White House, flowing from where the would-be-emperor resides. He wields the power of, not the sword, but rather of drones. His apparent silence on matters of state importance is a time-getter for the ultimate destruction of the American people who claim God as the One in whom they trust.
Could it be that the serpent again lurks in the tree, patiently waiting to break the back of this people who hinders Satan’s final attempt at a One World Order? If Obama is an Illuminati and a Bilderberg man, meeting with those whom God refers to as the princes and judges of this world, then he is among those whom He is going to flatten back to dust and to the darkness where they will float around forever in the universe.
He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless (Isaiah 40:23).
Only by the Word of God (Jesus), will the Light overcome the darkness. If America gives up the Word, then she, too, will receive the same national judgment that she deserves. For it was by His Word that God brought forth the light, created the heavens and the earth and separated the waters beneath from those above and the sea from the dry land. If you want to blur these sharp, clean lines, then listen to Satan and combine evil with good. However, God does not blur His lines of absolutes. The truth is absolute and life and death are matters as sure and firm as His Word, which Adam and Eve very quickly discovered.
If you believe there is no Satan, then you have turned Jesus into a liar and deny the truth of who He is as the Son of the God of truth. If you deny Him, then He will deny you before God and you will experience the abomination of desolation. What could be worse than eternal separation with the devil from a God who loved you enough to take your place at death’s door to save you? No one will ever make such an offering for you again. You will be on your own with Satan, the devil who hates you, to discover, too late, just how powerless you really are without the God who loved you.
America became powerful because of God and His Word. She will become powerless for rejecting them and embracing the lies of Satan, which are now flowing from the White House.
