Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

America has made her choice! She was on the high way with God, but she has chosen the route or detour downward to the low road. The high way leads somewhere, while the low road leads nowhere, but downward.
We all have known a ‘ne’er-do-well’ son or daughter who has rejected the high way of the father, in order to do his/her thing on a low road unacceptable to the father. There were not too many of them around in the days of my youth, but then the war came along, and all of that changed. Men and women exposed to the evils of war and a killing society found it difficult to return to peace, safety and stability.
They had learned not to trust in anything other than their instincts for survival, in the midst of horrific acts of war. They came to know that there is no high way in war; they had come to a crossover point, at the juncture with the low road of the devil who is the great destroyer and author of death.
When nations enter into treaties with other nations, which do not have God as their Ruler, they cross over to join forces with the dark side, placing the gods of those gentile nations on a level with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Whether or not peace agreements or trade agreements, we should not enter into agreements, which lead to killing or the eating of foods sacrificed to idols. Take a look at the food now pouring into America from China – that which one sees or gets is not necessarily what it is said to be, nor is it safe to eat.
The glory days of America, when God ruled from her borders to the very heart of the nation, are over. No one became an immigrant unless one swore allegiance to God and country on His Word deemed to be truth and not religion. One could be of any religion one might choose, but one would ultimately bow, in this land, to the truth of the Bible and would be compelled to speak the language of the nation.
You could come from any nation, but you could not bring your nation with you. You came to join a new one under God in liberty to become an American, free of religious controls because she chose to live unlike any other country in the world. This was because God ruled in truth and not in religion. The low road of religion, wars and captivity to it rests in the hands of Satan, with God’s people always being called to separate from him.
In America, we had leaders who were sworn into office on the Bible, the Book of truth. We had courtrooms where the judges were sworn into office on the Bible to uphold the laws of the land with the Bible being their guide for determining the truth. No child’s classroom of this nation began the day without a daily lesson about truth from the Bible. In the short period of time, spanning the years of my lifetime, I have watched this nation go from the high way of God to the low road of Satan, from being a nation ruled by truth to a nation ruled by the lie.
How has this happened? We have allowed progressive governments to steadily lead us back into the liberalism of the nations, from which we had escaped by coming to America. They are all attached to religious systems of one form or another, in so far as they can be described as a Muslim, Hindu, Judaic state, or whatever the predominate religion might be, as generally dictated by the state in very close alliance with the other. To the contrary, the Americas are generally considered to be Christian states, but this is not true, either. There has historically been a tie to the truth in America and not to any religious system, though many in the system adhered to the truth of Scripture.
From the days of Abraham, God has always led His people westward to the Land promised to his descendants, until Jesus’ time when Abraham became the father of many nations. The new form of church was led by Jesus into separation from all religious controls to eventually cross the sea to America, where, by her influence, a New World government was established under God’s ruler-ship in truth, and not in the lies of any religion dictated by the kings of this world.
When America set up laws guaranteeing religious rights (i.e. the Charter of Rights in Canada), she set up the laws of her own destruction, which led to the end of the Mosaic Law of God that states God’s people shall have no other gods before Him. He does not rule in any company of gods. He is God Almighty and there is no other. If we want those who rule by the lie, then He will depart and leave us to our foolish choices.
Unfortunately, Christianity is a religion established by Rome, entombing the true church within it. She absolutely must come out again from the darkness into the light, as did Lazarus, the friend of Jesus, before the empires of religion all come tumbling down, at the stroke of midnight. Unless she is separated, she could receive of the sin and the plagues coming upon Babylon, just as much as they came upon Egypt.
So much of the religious system of Christianity is sick and dying as crosses are being removed from the institutional churches while, at the same time, the priesthood agrees not to mention the name of Jesus publicly. These same so-called churches, which are actually not the true church against which the gates of hell cannot prevail (see Matthew 16:18), now elect liars for rulers and agree to a judicial system that makes its own laws apart from the truth of God’s Word and Law.
One might describe the church as being in a broken-down, old jalopy bumping along the lower road, driving steadily downward with liars like the Obamas and Clintons at the wheel. They have taken the money earned by the people to buy the best of cars and gourmet food for themselves (as much as $20,000 spent on one dinner out for the Obamas), while delivering the old jalopy to the average American worker, along with canned reptile, disguised as fish and shipped from China to the American people. We are only slightly better off in Canada.
Yes, there are liars, along with an increasingly Muslim presence, in the White House, coupled with an increasing lack of the presence of God. Never forget that, as a godly society, we had the clean water other nations lacked. We had freedom in liberty from religious tyrannies. We had copious amounts of the good foods of the world, which were controlled by health regulations for our safety.
We had a medical system that was the envy of the world, with all people able to receive needed medical attention, no matter what one’s status in life, receiving it from cradle to grave, regardless of age or origin of birth. Education was available, not only to all economic levels of people, but it was also a requirement so that no one was deprived of education on the basis of economic status. The Bible and discipline kept the schools basically a user-friendly zone, where parents knew it was safe for children while apart from their normal parental control, and that God was honored in every aspect of their child’s education.
I should like to ask Bill O’Reilly, who considers himself to be a great authority on Jesus, why he keeps asking the question as to what is causing the classroom killings and national violence in general, which we are witnessing in America today. Perhaps, he would get the answer if he could escape his religious background long enough to have ears to hear a witness from real church authority by those who have the proper credentials on an apostolic church foundation, as opposed to resting on the Babylonian foundation coming out of Rome. Such witnessing comes only from the authority of the Word of God, and from being under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
So why has the church allowed the Word to be stolen from our children who no longer travel the high way leading to the kingdom? We are the fools of Proverbs who are rejecting our heritage for a cheap bowl of reptilian stew – not even a stew of red meat, the choice for which Esau became the hated of God for giving up his inheritance. You, too, can move into heritage mode by seeking Him and leaving the world behind to become the loved of God.
So Joshua said to the people, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the Lord for yourselves, to serve Him.” And they said, “We are witnesses.” “Now therefore,” he said, “put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to the Lord God of Israel.” And the people said to Joshua, “The Lord our God we will serve, and His voice we will obey.” So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and made for them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem. Then Joshua wrote these words in the Book of the Law of God. And he took a large stone, and set it up there under the oak that was by the sanctuary of the Lord. And Joshua said to all the people, “Behold, this stone shall be a witness to us, for it has heard all the words of the Lord which He spoke to us. It shall therefore be a witness to you, lest you deny your God.” So Joshua let the people depart, each to his own inheritance (Joshua 24:22-28).
Such a stone is as the Cornerstone of the church, a man called Jesus. To deny God and disobey Him is to take the road of no inheritance. To keep covenant with Him is to take the high way straight into the kingdom, where the Lord God has a marvellous feast waiting for you, His true church, to celebrate with Him. God wants to honor His people. The question is, whether or not you are dressed properly and prepared for the occasion. He does not want you in your elaborate religious, priestly robes, but rather in your white robes of purity ready to partner with Him and serve at the table, which He prepares before you.
