Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

by Elinor Montgomery

October 23, 2017

I have always been a fan of Sean Hannity’s style and rather innocent, ‘little-boy’ look. However, this past week, the image I had of him faltered, as I watched him strutting the stage at ‘A Night of Healing’ in the Orleans Arena of Las Vegas. Dressed in black, looking rather like a priest with his collarless neck, he strutted from side to side shouting the words, “Vegas Strong” while, at the same time, encouraging the crowd to shout back the same words, ‘à la Trump style’.

It was to be ‘A Night of Healing’ for those involved in the ‘Route 91 Harvest’ tragedy where at least 58 people were killed and 527 injured after a lone gunman opened fire on 22,000 concertgoers. The gunman, who then killed himself, appears to have been a very wealthy man who thought nothing of gambling away thousands of dollars at one sitting.

How many lives and families have been totally destroyed, with deaths occurring from uncontrolled gambling in almost every casino of every state and province across America? Couple this with the sale of sweepstakes tickets at the ‘corner stores’ in most cities of the country and we have for ourselves an epidemic of gambling. It is a disease and a sin, which permeates the nation. Las Vegas is also a strip for Hollywood-style, stage extravaganzas, starring big Hollywood names, some having mob connections, and others having shady connections of their own. This city is rivalled only by Hollywood for the title of the sin capital of America.

It is ironic that the concert was called ‘A Night of Healing’ for a city, which promotes its own kind of death culture. Would one want to send a family member there to be healed? In what way can Vegas be strong, as long as it remains full of casinos with the opportunity for destroying lives? Is it possible to promote so much evil and call on God to bless America at the same time? Big & Rich seem to think so. It would be interesting to know just how many of those who attended ‘A Night of Healing’ went straight from the concert to the gambling tables the next morning.

I am not a fan of this style of modern-day music, but Big & Rich sounded about as grating to the ear as it gets. Within the transformation of music over the ages, we now have all kinds of music, much of which has been written in worship of the devil, himself. In the Bible, chapter 3 of the book of Daniel describes just such a time as it is now and was then, when the king of Babylon commanded the peoples, nations and languages, that when they would hear ‘all kinds of music’ they should fall down and worship the gold image of the statue, which he had set up. Whoever would not bow down and worship it would be cast into a burning, fiery furnace.

Now, there were certain Jewish captives in Babylon, from the fallen nation of Israel, who refused to bow down at the order of the king. Their names were Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego. They did not serve the gods of Babylon nor did they worship the king’s gold statue when they heard ‘all kinds of music’. As a result, they were thrown into the fiery oven to die, but the fire could not consume them. By refusing to do evil before their God, you could say they were healed and escaped the judgment. Another like the Son of God was seen walking with these men in the fire.

I believe that Hannity’s strutting on stage with the music of this so-called night of healing would have pleased the king of Babylon, but I don’t believe it would have pleased God. Yet, this very next week, Kevin Sorbo is releasing in movie theaters across America, a faith-based movie of which Sean Hannity is the executive producer and promoter. Which is it, Mr. Hannity; are you for God or for the devil? Is it your nature to use less than becoming language in conjunction with ‘all kinds of music’ on a Vegas stage to promote the strength of a city, which raises gold by gambling? I don’t believe God would strengthen such a city.

God is bringing the heat of destroying fires and the floods of destroying waters all across the southern border of America where President Trump wants to build a wall to keep out illegal immigrants and the evil, which is being given a pass to enter into the country with them. There has been enormous loss of life in the judgment, which has begun to fall on this nation, which has walked away from God. Las Vegas has not been free of that judgment. Raising money or gold will not heal either this city or the nation. Returning to God and His moral Laws of the land is the only way that they both can be healed.

When we start to hear music of a ‘love-in’ style, reminiscent of John Lennon’s music, with names like Love Everybody, it plays into the hands of a worldview with a culture based on a wide diversity of religions, which most certainly are not of God. It is back to Babylon and even to the Garden again where the serpent assured Eve that she could enjoy the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and she surely would not die, though God had said she would. It is very clear that God was correct and His Word is truth. She did die. The lie is found on the left, not on the right. I would have expected that Sean Hannity would have been the last to promote healing in this manner.

I think, Mr. Hannity, that you would be well advised to hold on to your night job as political commentator and forego the stage. Foul language does not become you, nor did strutting the stage while shouting “Vegas Strong” sit well in my mind with your support of a faith-based film called Let There Be Light. This is one and the same as saying, “Let there be Jesus”, for He is the Light of the world, and for Him, it is well worth strutting the stage of life. He alone can bring real healing and strength to a city like Las Vegas by overturning the gambling tables with their gold of the gods of Babylon attached to them.
