Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

Muslims, covered from head to toe in the black of night, are pushing across the Middle East conquering and killing as they go. They demonstrate the demonic nature of the ultimate fanaticism of religion. It is subject to the spiritual waters separated from man at creation and released back again by sin, to cover this earth with the spiritual river waters of the three, great, world empires, the last of which is the Babylonian system of empires divided into five branches.
They are clearly described in Genesis, chapter two, which names two of the three empires, Cush (Egypt) and Assyria, which will enslave God’s people, Israel, that is to say, without naming the last, divided, empire system of Babylon, which is attached to the river Euphrates. This third one takes us all the way from the beginning of the Babylonian captivity to the end of it, with the final part of it being the Revived Roman Empire in a time described in the book of Revelation as being when the evil forces of the spiritual waters of the Euphrates River are released.
As we look both at the book of Revelation and the vicious, conquering army of Muslim terrorists crossing over Iraq, killing and mutilating men, women and children as they go, we find ourselves looking at the first horseman of Revelation on the move.
Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. And he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer (Revelation 6:1-2).
All of these horrifying events, today, are being done in the name of religion and the pagan god, Allah. When is this world going to wake up and realize that sin and religion go together like love and marriage? They lead to the baby carriage and families of children raised on the lies of religion, the first religion being the belief system introduced to Eve, the mother of all living, by the serpent. The minds of such men are without understanding and without knowledge of the words of truth. It is called depravity.
When Israel sinned against God and Moses, God sent the symbol of their sin, the fiery serpents, among them to bite and kill the people. Was God just plain mean? Absolutely not! He was trying to drum understanding into His people by giving them signs to demonstrate that sin would surely lead to death, exactly as He had warned Adam and Eve would happen. He did a remarkable thing:
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived (Numbers 21:8-9).
This is truly the picture of Jesus becoming like the serpent, as did man when he sinned, in order to take man’s place in the judgment and receive the death sentence man would receive, were it not for this Man taking it upon Himself. The reason there was a resurrection was that He is the Word of truth made flesh, and there is no sin of religion in Him.
He resisted it at every turn in this wilderness of sin, and so He became the Conqueror in death to remain the Tree of life, which could not be cut down. Because of this Tree’s root system on the solid, rock foundation of truth, it simply resurfaced from the earth ready for the transfiguration of the body from its worldly, natural state to its eternal state.
We are shown, in the New Testament, over and over again, the nature of the religious Pharisees. They were the ones wanting Jesus’ death. They have always been the lies of religion, which came from the serpent’s mouth, that cause death. How is it we can read the signs of the weather and what we so foolishly refer to as being ‘Mother Nature’, but we cannot read the signs of the times, which we refuse to attribute to the Word of Father God? Can it be that there is nothing but religion in us with a void where there should be the truth of the Word?
We will read and watch most anything, including pornography, which oozes like a thick, dark syrup from our television screens, but we can find no time to read about the things, which give life, as opposed to death. So God will use, and is using, the empires of religion to wake up His people. Surely, we understand who the horsemen of Revelation are, as they ride on horses to bring violence, terror, war, famine and finally destruction to the world. Can we not see that it is the dark spirit of the Euphrates River, which is being released upon the Middle East as I write?
We are presently looking at the first horseman, which speaks of conquering. The second speaks of peace being taken from the earth, with people killing one another with a great sword. Is atomic warfare not the use of about as great a sword as it gets? This horseman speaks of world war. The third horseman speaks of famine, with the price of food skyrocketing. The fourth horseman represents death and Hades itself in the final judgment.
Going back to Ezekiel, we see the four spirits of the heavens first revealed. This is what he had to say about the will of God:
For thus says the Lord God: “How much more it shall be when I send My four severe judgments on Jerusalem – the sword and famine and wild beasts and pestilence – to cut off man and beast from it? Yet behold, there shall be left in it a remnant who will be brought out, both sons and daughters; surely they will come out to you, and you will see their ways and their doings. Then you will be comforted concerning the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, indeed all that I have brought upon it. And they will comfort you, when you see their ways and their doings; and you shall know that I have done nothing without cause that I have done in it,” says the Lord God (Ezekiel 14:21-23).
Are we, or are we not, seeing Jerusalem surrounded by countries just chomping at the bit to capture and destroy her? Are we seeing Christians being slaughtered and starved? Are we not seeing the peace of the entire Middle East being shattered? Are those men in black riding over Iraq not the agents and army of Satan, full of the wicked spirits of the Euphrates and the Islamic, present-day, Babylonian system of empires?
Wake up, you foolish Americans, to see Bible prophecy being fulfilled before your very eyes. The horsemen are on the move and they will cover the entire earth where the borders of God’s country are not sealed by the Word of truth. For the only sharp sword and protection for God’s people is that sharp sword, which was seen coming out of the mouth of the King of kings and Lord of lords, Jesus Himself, who will rule the entire earth one day with a rod of iron. Surely, when we threw the Bibles out of the schoolrooms, courtrooms and the governments of the nation, we threw out the sword of our protection; for in it are the words for life, not death, and for peace, not war.
Have we not got it all wrong by choosing to honor the cults of religion instead of the truth of God? We have chosen a leader who fiddles with golf clubs while the flames of judgment are burning and being levelled against the nations of religion belonging to the gentiles. Of course, they hate the Israel of the Promise and of the cherished Land inheritance. Surely, the crossover blessing of Abraham will not be complete until the inheritance is complete by going from the first son of God, Adam, to the second Son of God, Jesus.
Look for the fifth rider on the horse! His name is the King of kings and Lord of lords, and He is coming very soon to rule in peace. Do you know Him or will He say, “I never knew you”? It is time now to prepare for the events, which have begun to unravel on the face of history, just as prophesied in the last book of the Bible. We know from the signs that our time now is very short as we enter into the treacherous waters from which none will escape, without the saving love and grace of our Beloved, Jesus.
