Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

Could it be said that you are an alien dwelling on planet earth? Most definitely yes! There was a time when you were safely fixed on the earth in a Garden where you were assured of your place and position in relationship to the sun, moon and stars. The solidness of the earth and the gravity that held man in place on a solid foundation were an assured and foregone conclusion in the Garden of creation.
The entire, good and perfect setting for man has been described in the Bible, in the creation plan within the first few chapters of the book of Genesis. Man was new to the Garden setting, but he was created in such a way that he was no alien to this world. The entire creation was put in place by God for the purpose of providing a family for Himself, one that would be ever-expanding in fruitfulness from this, the perfect homeland for His brood. You might say that it was to become the command headquarters, or the manor house, for the kingdom of heaven on earth.
Would a God of holiness and righteousness make a home for His children, which would be anything less than perfect in rightness? As a God of truth, also, creation would abound in truth, as well as in perfection and rightness for His sons and daughters of man, the living being. They would be the lies of religion, a belief system apart from truth, which would change the nature of man, the living being, into a human being doomed to die for having made the choice to believe the lies of that which we call sin.
The living being in life would become the human man of death, an alien trapped by Satan within God’s world, alienated from his God, who, having given him the Spirit of life, would now recall His Spirit back to Himself. The man would become part of the human race under the rule of Satan, with the curse of death upon him, subjecting the entire earth to the judgment of God. The perfection of creation and the God of creation would be rejected, in order to embrace that which was sinful and evil. Man would pass from life to death almost within the blink of an eye.
He would become a genuine alien in his bondage of sin, the only kind of alien there is, which means being alienated from God. The perfect earth no longer would produce the good things planned for man; it would produce only thorns and thistles where once there had been a provision for his good. Foolish mankind had rejected the good things for the evil things, which are not good at all for the children of God.
The earth and humanity went into a downward spiral, doomed to return back to the dust for having accepted the devil’s plan while, at the same time, having rejected God’s plan for creation. It was evident that if man were to return to God, a giant shaking of the earth would be required before the renovations could take place, after six millennia of man destroying His creation, while living in sin and rebellion to Him.
They are not only my words, which tell you this, but they are also the words of Jeremiah, the prophet, who had this to say:
“For My people are foolish, they have not known Me. They are silly children, and they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.” I beheld the earth, and indeed it was without form, and void; and the heavens, they had no light.
I beheld the mountains, and indeed they trembled, and all the hills moved back and forth. I beheld, and indeed there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens had fled. I beheld, and indeed the fruitful land was a wilderness, and all its cities were broken down at the presence of the Lord, by His fierce anger (Jeremiah 4:22-26).
God will shake up the earth, with it being back to the drawing board for renovations to the old heaven and the old earth. Never again will God tolerate aliens in His family on earth, such as might reject His final plan in order to embrace the evil ways of Satan and man.
But, what was it that gave life to the living being? Was it not the Spirit of life, which God had breathed into the dust to create sons and daughters for Himself? They could never belong to Him in righteousness and to Satan in unrighteousness, at the same time. If the new plan were to be drawn up as an open concept, then there could be no closed doors between God and man.
No, man should love the renovation and then allow it to be listed on the market a second time. God would make sure that His Spirit would be returned to man and that all those elements of sinfulness, which had caused mold, corroded pipes and faulty, spiritual, electrical connections, would be cut out and replaced with new ones, once and for all time. Man will definitely love his newly renovated home, and he will cherish and keep it in a new, orderly fashion.
But, oh, the days of tribulation, which lie ahead, will be devastating when man and his atomic warfare cause the shifting of the earth, making it to be of no recognizable shape or light in the darkness! Was it not, after all, man’s choice for darkness over light? Jesus made it clear that He was the Light of the world. If we reject the Spirit of life, which only He can give for the asking, then it is the spirit of darkness and death that we will get.
When those mountains begin to tremble and shake, shooting forth cascading rocks, we will surely wish that we had listened to the promised blessings and cursings, which come with God’s moral laws of holiness and righteousness. We can choose or reject them at will, but that will not change the fact that they still apply to mankind.
Politics, the economy and religion are numbered 666, as the workings of man established by Satan, which have guided man into his depravity; they are his replacement plan for the Law, They are the foundation for the liars and cheats who deprive mankind of his heritage in God. This can only happen when we love the words of the liar more than we love the truth of God, even knowing that such words bring destruction down upon us. Yet, we behave as people without knowledge.
“Run to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem; see now and know; and seek in her open places if you can find a man, if there is anyone who executes judgment, who seeks the truth, and I will pardon her. Though they say, ‘As the Lord lives,’ surely they swear falsely.”
O Lord, are not Your eyes on the truth? You have stricken them, but they have not grieved; You have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to return. Therefore I said, “Surely these are poor. They are foolish; for they do not know the way of the Lord, the judgment of their God (Jeremiah 5:1-4).”
Wake up, you foolish people of America who once dwelled in a city that was a shining light upon a hill, before the hill shakes and falls flat to become a wilderness. It will no longer be a fruitful city, but rather a habitation for aliens – men and women alienated from their God.
