THE CUTTING EDGE

This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.

And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God’s people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.

Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God’s people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.

The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.

Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.

In the last four weeks, we have been focusing upon a unique situation in this country and the world, which we called a “snapshot”, wherein the forces advocating change to the New World Order have amassed in unprecedented ways and strength, waiting only the opportune time to attack. This opportune time will be when the Holy Spirit removes His final restraining power, probably with the Rapture of the true Christian Church. As we said at the end of last week’s program, we are preparing a four-tape series entitled, “New World Order Straining Against The Restraints”. We will be ready to mail out these series by the middle of October, so write us now to order this complimentary series.

As we have been concentrating on this four-week program we have allowed much news to go unreported; therefore, today we shall simply be concentrating upon wide-ranging news which has implications for the planned New World Order. We will begin with an unbelievable advertisement for the appearance of the Anti-Christ, in Time Magazine of all places.

NEWS ITEM: In Time Magazine, on December 31, 1990, the New Age organization, the “Legion Of Good Will”, paid for a full page advertisement advertising the return of the Christ. The advertisement was entitled, “What If He Decides To Return Today?”, and it features a typical picture of Jesus Christ in the middle of a plate. This message was intended as a New Year’s message to the world, and was included only in those Time Magazines which were being bought through home subscription. Magazines being sold off the counter did not contain this advertisement.

The message from the Christ contained the most important themes of the New World Order.

1. The threatened destruction of our planet

“His earthly mansion is in disorder, breaking apart, polluted, infected, neuroticized. That is all we have managed to build over the last 2,000 years.”

Remember the final phase of the plan to bring the New World Order into existence, as enunciated in the middle 1700’s? “When we come into our kingdom, our orators will expound great problems which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring it at the end under our beneficent rule. Who will ever suspect, then, that all these peoples were stage-managed by us according to a political plan which no one has so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries?”

Since this 1991 New Year’s message, we have repeatedly heard that mankind is systematically destroying the world ecologically so rapidly as to create a crisis of unprecedented proportions. This symphony of lies has increased so dramatically in the past two years as to make us realize that the score has reached the climax stage, and is surging toward the end. In this regard, we will be examining Al Gore’s new book, “Earth In The Balance”. This book is very revealing because it is so filled with gloom and doom because of the environmental problems, and because it represents in one volume all the major themes of the New Age Movement. The book further dramatically reveals the not-so-hidden political agenda toward the New World Order to which the Clinton-Gore team is committed. We are studying this book now, and will be reporting it shortly.

Now, back to our advertisement for the return of the Christ.

2. Secondly, this advertisement talks about his return, which is expected very soon. “…the Christ promised to return to earth. His promise will be brought to consummation. He will return when we least expect Him to, He will be among us. It could be today, perhaps at this very moment.”

The wording here parallels true Biblical teaching that Jesus Christ will return when people are least expecting Him. Further, this advertisement adds more confusion by capitalizing the personal pronouns, “Him” and “He” within the context of the sentence, implying Deity. Remember, the Anti-Christ will claim to be Jesus Christ returned to the Christian Community, but will claim to be the long-awaited Messiah whom the Jews have been awaiting. He will also claim to be Mohammed returned and Buddha returned, all in the same spirit.

3. The Legion of Good Will then identifies itself as “an International and unrestrictedly ecumenical entity…” If ever there was doubt about the true intentions of the current Ecumenical Movement, this advertisement should dispel it. Do not be deceived. The goal of the Ecumenical Movement is to produce a unity of the world’s religions, timed in conjunction with simultaneous unity in politics and the economy, so that the Anti-Christ can arise. Specifically, the Ecumenical Movement is foreseen as culminating in a new religion called the New World Order Religion. Alice Bailey, in her book, “The Externalisation of the Hierarchy”, states that the Christ will reestablish the Ancient Mysteries as the doctrine of the New World Order Religion. Of course, the Ancient Mysteries of which she is talking is the old Pagan Satanic religions of Babylon and Egypt.

This plan for the ecumenical New World Order Religion calls for the Roman Catholic Pope to be its leader and to call it into existence in a specially-convened religious and political conference to be held in Jerusalem.

If your church is currently participating in this Neo-Pagan Ecumenical Movement, you are called by Jesus Christ in Revelation 18:4, to ‘Come out from her, my people, so that you may not share in her sins, neither participate in her plagues.” The Bible issues many more calls for true believers to come out of their back-slidden churches than to stay within them, trying to reform them. This is certainly the situation today. The End of the Age is to be marked by the true disciples of Jesus Christ separating themselves from the prophesied back-slidden churches.

4. Finally, this advertisement echoes New Age themes when it proclaims that it has adopted Jesus Christ’s “crystal-clear love” as its basic philosophy. The writers of the New Age have simply recast the true Jesus Christ into a form which they find more palatable. In their teachings, Jesus Christ is all love; they have eliminated all His teachings on anger over sin, judgment and Hell. Thus, Jesus is reduced to just a doting Grandfather figure who could not ever cast anyone into eternal Hell; the most He could do is to sorrow over all persons who have not allowed their consciousness levels to be properly increased through applying His teachings on love, because such people are going to miss out on the joys of the coming millennia of peace and safety called the New World Order, and will have to be incarnated again later on.

This sad state of apostasy could never have been realized had it not been for formerly true Christian Churches drifting away from teaching the full weight of the Scriptures. Think back upon the sermons and Sunday School lessons in your church; how long has it been since you have heard a message on Hell and judgment? If it has been over a couple of months, you should begin to reflect upon whether your church is part of this Ecumenical Movement which has twisted the full truth of the Gospel into just bland pabulum.

NEWS BRIEF: “Calm Body, Clear Mind: The Chinese Art of Tai Chi Is An Exercise In Relaxation”, Lifebeat Section, Providence Journal Bulletin, September 29, 1992. This article clearly shows that classic Eastern Occultism continues to penetrate American society through the medium of Martial Arts and relaxation techniques. This story begins with the common complaint of the stresses and strains of everyday life in our society today. “There has to be some way to deal with all this tension and stress that cause your eyes to hurt, your joints to ache, your stomach to rumble and your general sense of well-being to slump somewhere below wretched.”

This sentence is a pretty good definition of the problems of today’s American society. No one can deny that these are unprecedented times of stress and trouble. We have enough daily worries to last a life-time. Almost all of us feel the stresses of this recession, the possibility of losing one’s job, and the unrelenting bad economic news which is being trumpeted daily from our mass media. Some of us worry about being victims of crime, or of one of our loved ones becoming victims. So many families are in trouble today, fueling stress and conflict daily. But, why should we be so surprised? Paul prophesied in 2 Timothy 3:1, that “…in the last days, there will set in perilous times of great stress and trouble — hard to deal with and hard to bear.” No other single sentence so clearly defines our society today. Why have we seen such unprecedented trouble and stress? Because too many Americans have gotten completely away from the values of Jesus Christ, and too few people are truly born-again.

Paul then prophesies why this society in the last days will become so stressed out. As we examine these causes, ask yourself if this doesn’t amply describe America today. Paul says society of the last days will become greatly stressed out and perilous because the people who comprise that society will change. They will become:

  • Utterly self-centered
  • Lovers of money and material wealth
  • Proud, arrogant, and contemptuous boasters
  • Disobedient to parents
  • Unholy, profane in their speaking
  • Will lack normal human affection and commitment
  • Will act in a non-human, cruel manner toward others
  • Will become liars, falsely accusing others
  • Will become loose in morals and will lose control of the extent of their immorality
  • People will hate all that is good in God’s sight
  • People will be lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than lovers of God. I cannot help but think of professional sports the fulfillment of this prophecy. Millions of Americans stay away from worshipping God every Sunday so they can either attend a sports game or watch it on TV.
  • People will hold to a form of true religion but will never know the reality and hence the power of it. We have many huge apostate churches today who look like, feel like, and sound religious, but who have no concept of the power of the Holy Spirit. These churches are powerless to teach their members how to be so reconciled to God through Jesus Christ that they have Holy Spirit-power daily.

Back to our story. Since today’s churches cannot teach their members how to live powerful, fulfilled lives through Holy Spirit power, people feel a great spiritual emptiness. This emptiness literally cries out to be filled. Satan steps in to fill this vacuum with his counterfeit spiritual solution. This article preaches the effectiveness of Tai Chi an ancient Chinese practice of occultic meditation and mind control. Tai Chi is similar to other occultic techniques, such as Yoga, in that it teaches its participant to “focus” on the body, imagining that the participant can feel the stream of energy which is supposedly flowing through the body, emanating from certain imaginary points called “Chakra” points. The net effect of all this mumbo jumbo is that the person’s mind is cleared of all thoughts and is focused upon “forces” supposedly present in the body. This condition creates the condition wherein the mind begins to lose its normal awareness of connection with the body. Once this weakened awareness has taken hold, the person is then subject, first, to mind manipulation, and secondly, to mind control, and thirdly, to possession.

Be careful of any Eastern occultic technique such as this Tai Chi, or Yoga, or Yen Yang. These practices are not of God, but emanate from Satan. God never teaches that we are to empty our minds of all thoughts; rather, we are to fill our minds with thoughts of His Glory and His Perfections. These techniques are poor counterfeits of this true meditation. Parents, be aware that public schools are teaching these techniques to children as soon as pre-school. They are using health classes or “relaxation” periods instead of traditional recesses to teach this occultism to unsuspecting children.

This article closes by cloaking itself in acceptability by recounting its many achievements:

  • It is being taught to bank employees, and employees of large corporations. Fleet Bank is specifically mentioned.
  • It is being taught in some senior citizen centers.
  • It is being taught in schools.

Do not be deceived. This technique is occultism being marketed in Western words and concepts and to a nation who has been amply prepared for it through its previous rejection of Jesus Christ.

It is truly another sign of the times.

NEWS BRIEF: “Church Of Elvis Sighted In Oregon”, Providence Journal Bulletin, September 29, 1992, Lifebeat Section.

This article clearly shows how spiritually empty Americans really are. “When Stephanie Pierce decided to start a church in Portland, Oregon, a few years ago, she wanted the object of worship at her shrine to be something ubiquitous and everlasting…She settled on Elvis.” As I read this article, I sensed that Stephanie had cynically decided to establish this “church”, undoubtedly as a moneymaking scheme. And this church has definitely made money, in a variety of ways:

1. The church hears confessions, which cost 25 cents. “Plunk a quarter into the Church of Elvis coin slot, and the machine inquires whether the sin you are about to confess is a ‘mere thought’ or an actual sin of commission. Then, the machine asks if you feel guilty. If you do, you are instructed to make a brief statement of remorse. But if you don’t feel guilty..you push a button labeled ‘Make My Day'”.

I am sure you feel, as do I, that this nonsense is pure blasphemous; however, it does clearly show the extent to which we have fallen as a nation. America is now poking fun at the entire concept of sin, confession, and forgiveness. Can you imagine asking a machine, rather than Omnipotent God for forgiveness of sin. Can you fathom the Satanic blasphemy inherent in the idea that forgiveness of sin can be realized by the puny expenditure of only 25 cents? Jesus paid an infinite penalty of punishment and death to atone for our sin. This makes me more angry than any other part of this entire sorry episode.

This story goes from the blasphemous to the ridiculous. After the sinner has deposited his 25 cents and has indicated his feeling of guilt, he must then choose his sin from among the six which are listed. They must pick the sin which is closest to the one which they committed. The six sins from which they must choose are:

  1. Dirty laundry
  2. Dirty teeth
  3. Condescending sneer
  4. Sex or money (It is interesting they are listed together)
  5. Overeating on a grand scale
  6. Belief in the Elvis-is-dead scam

This list simply defames Biblical teaching as to what constitutes sin. Grave sins against the person of God, such as taking His name in vain, or worshipping other gods, are not mentioned. Grave sins against your fellow man, such as murder and theft, are not mentioned. We have truly reached a sorry spiritual condition before God.

Finally, the Church of Elvis dispenses Matrimony Kits for $1; this kit comes complete with “rice, a little bit of money from your Aunt Mildred…a marriage license, the back of which doubles as a …quickie divorce certificate.” This final piece of blasphemy derides God’s institution of Marriage and commitment. We should not be too surprised that we are at this point of making fun of marriage, because one of the major, long-term goals of the Illuminati is to destroy the institution of Marriage.

So, the Church of Elvis is alive and doing well in Portland, Oregon, prospering, making lots of money. I lived in Portland for almost 20 years. This city is thoroughly dominated by the New Age Movement, as its sister city to the north, Seattle, Washington. But, make no mistake about the fact that this sad spiritual emptiness in Portland is more representative of the general condition of America than you would like to believe.

This situation reminds me of Jesus’ words of condemnation in Revelation, chapter 18, of economic Babylon, a country which dominates the world’s economy in the last days and a country which is destroyed in God’s judgment fire in “one hour of one day”. Listen to Jesus describe the spiritual bondage of this country: “She has become a resort and dwelling place for demons, a dungeon haunted by every loathsome spirit, an abode for every filthy and detestable bird…” These words describe America perfectly today. These are words of bondage. These words describe a nation so totally given over to Satanism that demons not only dwell there, they come there to relax, as the term “resort” implies. How many demonic spirits live in this country? Jesus says, “every” kind of loathsome, filthy, and detestable spirit.

Satan and God have been fighting for the soul of America since the mid-1600’s. God has always prevailed, but in these last days, He has done exactly what He foretold He would do: He has gradually began to withdraw His restraining power from this formerly great Christian country. The predictable results have occurred; America has gone the way of Satan. We need to pray for our country now like never before, and we need to keep looking up, for our redemption is drawing near.

NEWS BRIEF: “Perot Entry Scrambles Arithmetic”, The Boston Sunday Globe, September 27, 1992, lead page. Ross Perot is likely to reenter the Presidential Race again. Polls are showing that Perot would hurt Bill Clinton more than President Bush in a three-way contest, which is to be expected since Perot is at least as liberal as Clinton. But, this brings up the most important question concerning this most improbable Perot candidacy. With Clinton holding his commanding lead in the polls, why is Perot jumping back into the Presidential race when he will only hurt Clinton, whose policies match up very well with his? Why isn’t he just cheerleading for Clinton, urging his followers to vote for the Democratic ticket? After all, news stories have repeatedly emphasized that Perot and Bush had a falling-out many years ago, and their feelings for one another are very bitter. Common sense would dictate that Perot would do nothing to prevent anyone from defeating Bush. Right??

For the past three months, we have been watching Perot continue his registration drive in every state, even though he had officially pulled out of the race. Obviously, his actions were not matching his rhetoric. Either we have just one more instance of the political process gone mad, or we have something occurring here which is hidden. Consider the Perot story in The Wall Street Journal, May 29, 1992, entitled, “Friend In Need”. Several years ago, Perot applied for membership in the infamous Council On Foreign Relations, a move which makes sense if he wants to run for President. Remember, the Council On Foreign Relations is THE major think-tank and postgraduate training school for those men who want to substantially advance the cause of the New World Order.

However badly Perot wanted to join the Council On Foreign Relations, he faced the problem of sponsorship. Every candidate must be sponsored by a current member of the organization. Perot got his sponsorship. Would anyone care to guess who his sponsor was? If you guessed President George Bush, you were correct. Not only did President Bush sponsor the candidacy of Ross Perot to the Council On Foreign Relations, he wrote a letter which a Perot aide admitted was “lovely”, definitely implying that Bush’s support was strongly positive.

Now, doesn’t that just beat all? Bitter enemy Bush strongly supported the candidacy of Perot to join the Council On Foreign Relations. We are close to getting to the meat of the hidden agenda. As we have said so many times, this drive to the New World Order is equally supported by both Democrats and Republicans, both Liberals and Conservatives. In fact, the Council On Foreign Relations was created in 1923 for the express purpose of being able to control the American Democratic process in every major election, so that their plans for Global Government, Economy, and Religion would continue unabated, no matter who one the elections. In all major races, both opponents would be a member of the Council, so the agenda would be advanced consistently.

We believe that George Bush is the person chosen by the Great White Brotherhood to lead America and the rest of the world into the New World Order. However, since the Persian Gulf war ended, Bush’s unprecedented popularity slipped badly. Who would have guessed this would be possible? It seemed to everyone, including the planners for the New World Order, that Bush had the election in the bag? However, when it became apparent that Bush might be beaten by any Democrat, Perot entered the race as an “outsider” candidate, and as a successful businessman who would be able to solve our economic and national debt problems.

But, Perot succeeded too well, because he appealed to many conservatives who would normally hold their noses when they voted for Bush. How does Perot alienate these voters? He withdraws, thus showing these conservatives that he cannot be trusted after all. I have been saying since then that Perot would reenter the race in time for the election if Bush could not close the gap with Clinton enough to produce victory.

Apparently, this is precisely what is happening. Perot appears to be reentering the Presidential race with the express purpose of pulling enough votes away from one candidate so as to guarantee victory for the other. Before you scoff, remember the arrogant statement of the writers of the New World Order, a statement written in the late 1700’s: “When we come into our kingdom, who will ever suspect then that all these peoples were stage-managed by us according to a political plan which no one has so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries.” This political plan is attempting to stage-manage you, the electorate, into reelecting George Bush as President.

But, no matter who wins the election, the New World Order goal will continue unabated. Only God’s intervention will stop the final implementation of Satan’s kingdom and the appearance of his man, Maitreya the Christ, who is the Biblical Anti-Christ. The only preparation for this kingdom is spiritual and the only effective way to battle it is spiritual. Sustained, daily prayer is the only weapon which can hope to reverse Satan’s progress.

THE CUTTING EDGE

This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.

And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God’s people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.

Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God’s people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.

The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.

Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.

For the past three programs, we have been discussing that unique, never-before snapshot of world history in which the peoples of this world find themselves today. Never before have the forces of evil, Satan’s forces, been so strong in so many different areas of society as they are today. In our snapshot, we see these evil forces amassed and ready to attack in full strength once the restraints holding them back are fully removed. On the other side are the beleaguered forces of Jesus Christ, as embodied in the true Christian Church. Once the Christian Church is removed Satan’s forces will attack from all points of the compass in overwhelming strength. They will carry the day for Satan and establish his New World Order.

In the past three weeks, we have talked about many different areas in which we see these evil forces amassed. We have discussed many specific areas in which Satan is amassing, but we want to update you on just a few areas already mentioned.

* Electronic advances have now made it possible for the New World Order forces of Anti-Christ to fulfill the Biblical prophecies of a One-World economy, where everyone can buy and sell only if they possess an invisible mark, most probably a computer chip. Similarly, computer technology is now so precise that purchases by everyone on earth can be monitored every minute of every day.

We would like to update you with an article which appeared last week in the Sun Chronicle, September 9, 1992. The article was entitled, “Stalkers Get Stung In Colorado By Electric Anklet”. Arapaho County is forcing known stalkers to wear an “electronic bracelet that triggers an alarm if he goes near the person he is accused of harassing. The alarm sounds on a receiver near the victim and a simultaneous signal goes to a communication center, which alerts police. (Further), the victim has a ‘panic button’ on the receiver if the abuser disconnects the bracelet before coming near her.”

This technological solution sounds promising, but this is the inherent weakness: The stalker can disconnect the bracelet and buy himself a limited amount of time in which to kill his victim. Only a few murders of this type will be required for some brilliant scientist to propose that this electronic device be fitted permanently on the body of the stalker in such a way that he cannot remove it. This solution would probably involve planting it under the skin of the stalker.

Then, if this technology were to be married with the existing technology of the identifying chip currently being utilized by veterinarians and cattlemen, you would have the most ideal system to keep track of everything a person did economically and everywhere they went physically. The Anti-Christ would have absolute, complete control over everyone in the world.

  • We strongly warned that those individuals who want to institute the New World Order are using Science to further discredit Christianity and the Bible. Evolution is the most obvious example, but not the only lie being trumpeted today. Children are being regularly told that this universe is billions of years old, that man has been in existence for hundreds of millions of years, and that other human-type beings exist on other planets. In this latter regard, be on guard for the lie that Science has discovered absolute proof that evolution can be proven based upon discoveries on Mars. We will be devoting an entire program on Mars very soon, but just be aware for now that NASA, in cooperation with Carl Sagan, is beginning to prepare this world for supposed discoveries on Mars.
  • We also noted, at the end of last week’s program, that the two major political parties in America, the Democrat and the Republican, have abandoned their similarities of position in a way which is both shocking and unprecendented. This summer’s Presidential Conventions were shocking in the dramatic way in which they revealed this change. The Democrat Party demonstratively embraced most of the values of the New World Order, the positions of evil which we have been discussing the past three weeks. On the other hand, the Republican Party has overwhelmingly adopted the Judeo-Christian values of the Old World Order.

This is not to say that President Bush and his key advisors are Christian or that they are to be trusted, for we have shown on many occasions how committed to this New World Order they truly are. However, the fact remains that Bush and his key supporters have decided to court the votes of the Christian community. This places most Republican candidates under a similar commitment to the Christian voter.

Today, we want to discuss another unparalleled political development in the world today: the reunification of Western Europe into one super nation. Not since the original Roman Empire has Europe been so close to uniting into one nation. Again, Biblical scholars have consistently maintained that the Anti-Christ will arise out of a super nation that is the revived Roman Empire. As I have said on many occasions, this is a very exciting time in which to be alive, because world events are occurring precisely along the lines which those scholars who have insisted upon interpreting the Bible literally have predicted. World events of the past 20 years have built the strongest possible case for the literal interpretation of the Bible.

As I have researched the writings of the leaders of the New World Order, I have been repeatedly struck by the intense feelings these writers possess concerning European reunification. Their feelings in this regard can only be described as religious in nature and intensity. Adolf Hitler, the first public New World Order advocate, believed he had been chosen by the gods to finally unite Europe. After World War II, Foster Bailey wrote that Hitler’s attempt had failed, and that now reunification would be accomplished economically and peacefully. This type plan would be consistent with Biblical prophecy which repeatedly states that the kingdom of the Anti-Christ would be accomplished by a peaceful plan.

This plan began in earnest in 1954, when the American-European secret society, known as the Bilderbergers, was established, with the express purpose of uniting Europe. The plan called for the unification to begin exclusively with economics. Economist Martin Mayer, writing for the Boston Globe on September 20, 1992, boldly stated that he knew, in 1959, that European reunification was inevitable. Why did he feel so strongly about this, to the point of considering it to be inevitable? Because, “French and German manufacturers were meeting to standardize screw threads…That sort of momentum”, Mayer wrote, “..was going to be irreversible.”

Mayer was exactly correct. Gradually, piece by piece, agreement following agreement, the nations of Europe were systematically intertwined. Finally, in early 1980’s, enough progress was made that Europe’s economy could be changed into one giant Free Trade Zone, larger than our 50 states. Agreements were hammered out which struck down all of the areas of individual protectionism which existed in the many countries of Europe, and a timetable was established by which the last of these protectionism’s would be eliminated. This target date is December 31, 1992.

Also in this same general time frame, agreements were reached which established a new currency called European Drawing Rights or EDR. This new currency was simply placed alongside all the existing currencies of Europe, without replacing any of them. In this way, no one would be upset about the establishment of a new currency, because their own currency would not be publicly targeted for extinction. If there is one thing about which everyone can agree, it is that people feel more strongly about their currency than about nearly everything else. A people’s love of their currency is akin to their patriotism and love of family.

To sidestep this love of currency, the European Drawing Rights was simply created as one more currency by which European companies could elect to conduct business. The major planned advantage with this new currency is that its value was fixed and guaranteed; its value would not change. Thus, a multi-year contract between foreign countries could be negotiated with the absolute assurance that the value of the currency would not change. Consequently, more and more business was conducted with European Drawing Rights. Then, the people of the Bilderberg Group became convinced that the conditioning of the people had reached the proper level to allow a formal treaty cementing Europe into a single economy. Therefore, late last year, ministers of Western European countries met in Maastricht, the Netherlands, to write just such a treaty. The terms of the Maastricht Treaty carry the nations of Europe much closer to single federated state, with a single currency, a single central bank, and a common foreign policy.

Some nations were to ratify this treaty by a vote of their parliament and some by general referendum. Ireland was the first to approve the treaty, followed by Luxembourg on July 2, and Italy last week. Things seemed to be going along just perfectly until voters in Denmark rejected the treaty on June 2. Suddenly, the Maastricht Treaty, and the European unity it would provide, seemed very much in doubt. All eyes turned toward France, who narrowly voted its approval last Sunday. However, in the two weeks prior to the vote, polls showed the election was too close to call; the outcome could go either way. Clearly, it was time for bold action to prod the electorate in the direction of treaty approval. Suddenly, the German Central Bank increased interest rates without notifying any of its European partners. The result was chaos in the financial markets, especially in Great Britain and France. These currencies shrank dramatically in value against the German Franc. I believe these actions were deliberately triggered and did accomplish their goal of convincing enough voters to vote in favor of the Maastricht Treaty. This exercise showed French voters two very important things:

  1. The major advantage of a European currency based upon a single European economy is that its currency would not change in value. People were forcefully reminded that, if they insisted upon retaining individual economies throughout Europe, they could count upon many similar instances of currency fluctuations.
  2. People were reminded of Europe’s “German Problem”. All nations of Europe are very wary of the renewed strength of Germany. France, especially, retains this fear of Germany. Consequently, French leaders supported the move to European unity because they believed a European Government would be able to control Germany keeping her from ever becoming overly powerful again. French voters were repeatedly reminded of this goal in the two weeks prior to the election; and just to ensure that they got the message, the German Central Bank unilaterally increased their key interest rates just days before the French election. This action gave French officials ample opportunity to use this theme in the critical three days before the election. Obviously, a European Government would take into account the interests of every citizen and country in Europe before it would decide upon a certain course of action.

But, all this activity simply masks the true significance of the approval of the Maastricht Treaty. What is really happening here is that Nation Number 2 is being created. What Nation Number 2, you ask? The New World Order Plan envisions that, immediately after the United Nations assumes formal control over the affairs of the world, its first official act will be to reorganize the world’s collection of 170+ sovereign nations into 10 Super Nations. This Plan, when carried out, will fulfill several Biblical prophecies, most notably Daniel’s 10 toes, found in chapter 2:20-45, and Daniel’s 10 horns, chapter 7:1-28.

Let us look for a moment at the prophecy of the 10 Toes so that we may more clearly understand the drama which is unfolding before our very eyes. In chapter 2:20-45, Daniel identifies the huge figure of a man in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. This man represented the four Gentile kingdoms which God would allow during the Times of the Gentiles.

  • The first kingdom was made of purest gold and was represented by the figure’s head and shoulders. Daniel told the king this was his Babylonian kingdom. Babylon was given control over the known world.
  • The second kingdom was made of silver and was represented by the shoulders and upper torso. Since this part of a person’s body consists of two parts, so this new kingdom would have two parts: the Medes and the Persians, joining together to form the Medo-Persian empire. This empire exercised control over the known world.
  • The third kingdom was made of bronze and was represented by the middle part of the torso, plus the thighs. This nation would take over control over the known world, and was later identified as Greece.
  • The fourth kingdom was made of iron legs, and feet that were part iron and part burned potter’s clay. This kingdom was identified as Rome, and would control the known world. Rome did arise to take control from Greece and its rule lasted over 1200 years. However, its control finally crumbled and Rome fell. But, our institutions of learning and law and much of our concepts of government came from the Roman model. The institution of Rome never left modern European and American society.

Then, we must consider the toes. They are identified as being part of the fourth and final Roman kingdom in the last days, a kingdom which will again control the known world, which this time will be the entire earth. When Biblical scholars considered this part of the prophecy, plus Daniel’s prophecy of chapter 9:27, they firmly maintained that the Bible was foretelling the revival of the old Roman Empire during the last days of time.

The most exciting part of this current drive to European unity is that the geographical make-up of the proposed European Community encompasses almost precisely the original furthermost boundaries of the old Roman Empire. This included the island nation of Great Britain, which will be part of the European Community, her current protests not-with-standing.

In 1972, a book entitled, “Mankind At The Turning Point” was published. This book included a plan to reorganize the world’s nations into 10 Super-Nation. These 10 Super-Nations are:

  1. North America
  2. Western Europe
  3. Japan
  4. Australia, South Africa, and the rest of the market-economy of the developed world.
  5. Eastern Europe, including Russia
  6. Latin America
  7. North Africa and the Middle East
  8. Tropical Africa
  9. South and Southeast Asia
  10. China

This 10-nation reorganization is envisioned as a new superstructure, built upward and over the existing structure of the current sovereign nations. The Plan carefully allows sovereign nations to continue to exist without any apparent plan for change. However, their books tell a different story. They definitely plan to abolish sovereign nations, but only after the peoples of the world have gotten used to being a citizen of the super-nation in which they are living.

This is the same concept we discussed earlier regarding currency. Since people ascribe such great and deep loyalty to both their sovereign nation and its currency as to make it impossible to establish a plan which would do away with them in favor of a One-World Nation, the plan was amended to contain this interim step. For a time, the world will have both sovereign nations and their currencies and a 10-nation government and single currency. After several generations have come and gone, people’s love of their individual nations and currencies will have been so weakened that they will allow their abolition.

What we are witnessing today, in Europe, is creation of Nation Number Two of this 10-Nation Plan. The European Community is simply one nation in this plan. At this point, we need to pause to discuss the other interpretation of the 10-toes of Daniel, because many of our listeners are used to this interpretation. This interpretation of the 10-toes is that the Revived Roman Empire itself would be comprised of 10 nations. The fact that it now consists of 12 nations is held to be no problem because, when it finally takes shape, it will be comprised of only 10 nations. According to this theory, two of the current nations will have dropped out, as indeed, we have seen Denmark already refuse to ratify the treaty.

However, this interpretation greatly violates the most basic principle of Biblical interpretation, the principle of context. Biblical scholars have always maintained that, in interpreting the meaning of any particular Scripture, you must be very careful to ensure you are being true to its context. This is a most important principle, since most cults pull Scripture out of its context so they can twist and pervert God’s true meaning. This interpretation that Daniel’s 10-toed nation at the end of the age is a 10-nation European Community violates this most basic principle because it takes it out of its original context.

What is the original context? We can easily see it spelled out for us in chapter 2:39, “And after you (addressing King Nebuchadnezzer of Babylon), shall arise another kingdom, inferior to you, and still a third kingdom of bronze which shall bear rule over all the earth.” Each of these four Gentile nations were decreed temporary control over the entire civilized world. Therefore, the context of this 10-nation prophecy is control over the entire settled world, which today is the entire globe. Indeed, this is the scope of the plan contained within the book mentioned above, “Mankind At The Turning Point”. The entire world will be reorganized into 10 Super Nations, and we are seeing it occur before our very eyes!!

Before we go any further, I wish to mention one further thing about the number 10. Occultists have always maintained that the number 10 is a most sacred number. Evidently, God has caused the occultist to believe this nonsense about the sacred nature of the number 10 in order that His prophecy of the Ten Toes would be fulfilled. In spite of our interpretation of the 10 Toes being representative of the entire world, we may yet see Satan form the European Community into 10 nations; however, this still will not be the fulfillment of the 10-Toes prophecy. The worldwide plan to reorganize the nations into 10 Super-nations will be the fulfillment. We acknowledge that the European Community may yet be born as 10 nations only because we understand how sacred this number is to the occultist and to Satan. Occultists seem preoccupied with the number 10. We see its use in their writings constantly. The most practical example of its use concerns the United States. Did you know that President Nixon, on February 10, 1972, reorganized the United States into 10 regions in the event of a national emergency? Not only did he choose the number 10 to be the number of regions in his plan, he chose the tenth day of February as the day to sign his Executive Order. Ten is a most sacred occultic number.

As we look at the 10-Nation Reorganization Plan once again, we are jolted as we realize that the United States is to be included in Nation Number 1, called North America. The North American Free Trade Zone, proposed by President Bush, and now being debated by Congress, is Nation Number 1 of this plan. It will be comprised of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Do not pay any attention to the debate in Congress, because in the end, the Senate will ratify the proposed treaty. The debate is necessary only because the occultist believes that nothing can be accomplished without a struggle or the appearance of a struggle. This is why I view the protests of Great Britain against the European Community with such a jaundiced eye.

Again, back to this 10-nation Plan, we see that Nation Number 3, Japan, Nation Number 6, Latin America, and Nation Number 10, China, are already formed. Interestingly, Nation Number 5 was listed in this 1972 book as “Eastern Europe, including Russia”. This is absolutely incredible, and it demonstrates once again the existence of a well-thought out conspiratorial plan, because in 1972, Russia was not a sovereign nation as implied by this title, but was part of the superpower called the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or USSR. The occultic writer of this book knew the New World Order plan called for splitting the USSR into its component parts, and so worded his national reorganization accordingly. Nation Number 5, “Eastern Europe, including Russia”, is now possible, awaiting only formal agreement.

Nation Number 7, North Africa and the Middle East, is being formed right now with the “peace” talks between Israel and Syria. These talks are suddenly showing great progress and will probably result in a very temporary regionalization of the Middle East as implied in the Title for Nation Number 7.

Finally, Nations Number 4, 8, and 9 are simply Third World countries who are powerless to do anything other than what the Industrialized nations tell them. Their creation can be accomplished in one hour of any single day, by a vote of the United Nations.

These dogs are really straining at the leash, awaiting only the final removal of the restraint, and then they will immediately reorganize the world according to their 10-Nation Plan.

Finally, current events have possibly given us the answer to the problematic prophecy of Jesus in Revelation 17:1-3. Jesus foretells that the beast of Anti-Christ will have seven heads and ten horns. Obviously, several of the seven heads must have more than one horn. Scholars were at a loss to adequately explain this prophecy. However, consider that today’s plan for the creation of Anti-Christ’s New World Order is being spearheaded by two forces:

  • The economic organization called the “Group of 7″, or simply, “G-7″. The leaders of G-7 are always represented by their top leaders, who call themselves the “heads” of the organization. G-7 is comprised of the United States, Japan, and selected Western European nations.
  • The 10-Super Nation Reorganization Plan.

There you have it — the Seven Heads and Ten Horns.

Today, as never before, we are witnessing the world changing in so many ways which have been prophesied in the Bible concerning the last days. Make no mistake about it: Satan is amassing his troops in so many different ways and from all the points of the compass, awaiting only the day in which those final restraints are removed. Then, he will attack to overthrow the Old World Order established on Judeo-Christian principles, establishing his coveted New World Order, based upon Paganism.

Are you spiritually ready? Time is now very short. Do not put off any longer your positive response to the pleading of the Holy Spirit. As Jesus said, “When you see these things beginning to occur, lift up your head, for your redemption is drawing nigh.” Look up, the Rapture is very close.

THE CUTTING EDGE

This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.

And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God’s people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.

Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God’s people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.

The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.

Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.

Last week, we attempted to show some of the many instances in which forces which are totally un-Christian and some of which are blatantly anti-Christ, are poised as never before to take command of this country and this world once their restraints are taken away. We compared this restraint to a dog straining against his leash, attempting with all his might to break the hold of the leash so he could charge in the direction he wants to go. But, the owner restrains the dog with the leash, and forces him to go in the direction which the owner dictates. In this comparison, the restraint is the Holy Spirit, working through His church, and the dog represents the forces of anti-Christ. We called our study a snapshot of world history, that moment in our time when the Jesus Christ is poised on the one side, preparing to rapture His True Church while Satan’s forces are massing on the other side, ready to burst forth upon the world scene the moment Jesus Christ removes the restraining power of the Holy Spirit working through the Church. Instantly, upon the removal of the Holy Spirit’s restraining power, Satan’s massed forces would burst upon the world, establishing his values and institutions, while sweeping away the last vestiges of the old Judeo-Christian structure. We believe this is the situation in today’s world; if this is true, we should be able to see the forces of Anti-Christ massed with unprecedented force, ready to attack once the restraints are removed.

In so many instances, this is the situation in this country and this world today. We examined just a few situations last week, limited by time constraints. We examined such areas as Abortion, Infanticide, Suicide, Organ Donation, Fetal Tissue Research, all under the umbrella of Value of Human Life. Then, we studied how Christian Absolute Values are under attack as never before. Under this umbrella, we studied how murder is being redefined, how sexual activity is being encouraged in such a way as to deliberately disobey God’s commands so that the Family as an institution is undermined. And finally, we studied how the Christian standard against the practice of homosexuality is under unprecedented attack. In every one of these cases, the dogs are straining at the leash, eager to attack once the restraints are removed. Also in every one of these instances, the true Christian church is providing the restraint. If the church were suddenly removed, these dogs would instantly attack and overcome all the feeble obstacles which might remain to establish their Satanic ideal.

Today, we shall examine even more instances where the forces of evil are straining against the leash.

1. Conditioning of our children continues unabated. We see this conditioning in public schools, which are teaching anti-Christian values more blatantly than ever before. Textbooks contain non-Christian values, with some themes containing actual Satanic overtones. We shared with you several months ago the new primary textbook, “Impressions”, which had rewritten the “Twelve Days Of Christmas” in a witchcraft and goblin format that was very frightening to a young, impressionable child.

But, textbooks today also teach all the New World Order themes, especially in Social Studies, History, and Geography. Students are being taught the following lies:

* Evolution is still being taught, but the emphasis has changed. Traditional Darwinian Evolution is under attack today from many scientific quarters because science has repeatedly demonstrated that it is mathematically impossible for this incredibly complex world to have come together accidentally, through the process of sheer chance, even over the period of billions of years. Therefore, schools are teaching that “Ancient Astronauts” visited this earth several thousand years ago to conduct genetic tests upon the primitive ape-like creatures which they found here. These genetic experiments produced modern man. Who are these “Ancient Astronauts”? While most school children will not be told specifically, New Age writings make it very clear that these creatures were “E.T.” type Aliens. These writings further state emphatically that these Aliens from outer space will help lead the world to the New World Order. Watch the tabloid’s conditioning about Aliens; I believe this is a good barometer as to how close we are to the appearance of Anti-Christ.

Children are being further programmed to believe the lie that this world is facing environmental disaster. Remember the statement made in a book written in the mid-1700’s about how the New World Order was to be achieved? This book made the statement, “When we come into our kingdom (the New World Order), our orators will expound great problems which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring it at the end under our beneficent rule.” This is precisely the situation today. Since the world stands at the doorway leading into the New World Order, it is now time to expound such great problems which have turned humanity upside down. These great problems will have to be global in nature, so people will accept a global government as the solution. So, we are taught there is global warming, global cooling, global ozone depletion, global pollution, global deforestation, etc., even though there is little to no scientific evidence to back up these claims.

And our precious children are being taught these lies in public schools as though it were scientific truth. Remember Adolf Hitler’s infamous maxim, “Truth is not what is; truth is what people perceive it to be.” Hitler also taught that, if you are going to tell a lie, make it as large as possible, because people are more likely to believe a huge lie than a small one. This Neo-Nazi movement called the New World Order is simply taking a page out of Hitler’s textbook.

Children are also being taught New World Order morality in Health Classes, New Age meditation in Physical Education and relaxation classes, and New Age Situational Ethics. Our public education system is spiritually damaging children like never before.

Rock music is also making further inroads into the hearts and minds of our youth. The Rock music of the middle 1970’s which seemed to be so outrageous and offensive is now being mainstreamed. It is presented as though it were as normal and natural as Apple Pie. Thus, even more children will fall victim to its Satanic values. And, of course, current Rock Music is just as evil as any of its predecessors.

Children today are still being plagued by alcohol and drug usage. They are literally blowing their minds and bodies. Finally, children today are the most sexually active generation of teens in world history. C. Everett Koop warned, in 1988, that this current generation might be the first in world history that is completely wiped out by sexually-transmitted disease. But, in the face of such evidence, the godless adults which are running our school systems and writing our textbooks are encouraging such sexual activity. They are teaching the lie that sex outside of marriage is normal and healthy, and are continuing the lie by teaching that condoms prevent the spread of AIDS. Of course, they do not prevent AIDS, because the AIDS virus is so small it passes through the material of which the condom is comprised.

Teenage girls are being counseled in health clinics within their high schools to get abortions once their sexual activity results in pregnancy. In many instances, high school counselors have assisted teens to get abortions without their parent’s knowledge and approval. In the greatest irony of all time, parent’s must approve their child receiving any kind of medication at the school, but need not be even notified that their daughter has received an abortion.

The dogs in public education are straining at the restraining leash today as never before.

2. Conditioning of adults is also continuing at a very high level. Adults are being led away by such devices as a love for materialism, which our mass media trumpet very loud and clear. They are being led astray by alcoholism, drug usage, and sexual deviancy, just to name a few. Adults are also under the greatest economic pressure ever. Both Mom and Dad must work in most families to provide a decent standard of living, thus putting even more pressure on the fabric of the family. Many children are literally raising themselves.

3. Technological advances continue apace which, once they are implemented, will fulfill many Biblical prophecies concerning the end of the age. We alluded to this in last week’s program, but now we need to examine it in more detail. Satan has always wanted to control the world, but was always restrained by God. However, God prophesied that He would allow Satan to control the world very briefly at the end of the age. God uttered prophecies which told us some very specific things about the kingdom of Anti-Christ. As Satan was allowed to control the world for that very brief time, he had to do so in a way which fulfilled God’s prophecies. And, he needed modern technology to fulfill these prophecies; Satan simply could not have fulfilled these prophecies with the level of technology which existed at the beginning of this century. For example, God foretold that the economy of the world would be global, and that the dictator Anti-Christ would control the population of the world so completely that he would force every person in the world to receive some kind of mark, either in their forehead or in their right hand, without which no one could buy or sell in the economy of the Anti-Christ.

Satan needed modern technology, and he has it today, and only today. Let us begin with the New World Order Plan, as we can easily see God’s omnipotence when we examine this part of their plan. Author Bill Cooper outlines the plan to institute the economy of the Anti-Christ, in his book, “Behold A Pale Horse”. Listen carefully to the step-by-step plan, a brilliant four-step plan:

“Eventually every individual element of the [economic] structure comes under computer control through a knowledge of personal preferences, such knowledge guaranteed by computer association of consumer preferences (Universal Product Code — UPC — zebra-stripe pricing codes on packages) with identified consumers (identified via association with the use of a credit card and, later, a permanent tattooed body number invisible under normal ambient illumination…” (P. 44).

Incredibly, this plan is very close to completion. Consider the implementation of all the steps listed by Cooper in this paragraph:

  • Step 1, consumer personal preferences are already known throughout our economy, with manufacturers knowing, in detail, our preferences in cars, clothes, perfume, cosmetics and many, many other products. How do these manufacturers know our preferences? Because most purchases have been minutely tracked through the use of UPC codes to record the sale. We will address this issue more thoroughly in a few minutes.
  • Step 2, the tracking of all packages moving through the system through the use of UPC codes, is now complete. The U.S. Postal Service, UPS, Federal Express, and others, all use UPC Codes to move packages. People have been thoroughly conditioned to accept UPC code markings on packages.
  • Step 3, the tracking of consumers by credit and debit card, is now complete. Remember, the New World Order is prophesied to be the most efficient dictatorship the world has ever seen. All dictatorships must keep track of their citizens at all times, to the best of their technology. This world is at the point, where every purchase, by every individual, can be registered in some computer every single time. The specific time and place of the transaction is faithfully recorded by the computer, thus allowing the potential for every person in the world economy to be tracked down to the exact minute and location.

Before we move on to the next step, we need to inform you that the technology which makes the visible UPC codes work is the same technology which makes the invisible bar coding of the credit cards work. In fact, when you examine the bar code on the back of a credit card under a powerful microscope, you will see a series of ridges and valleys which work on the same premise as the UPC bar codes. Thus, the same technology which drives the visible UPC code also drives the invisible magnetic bar code of the credit card.

* Step 4, the final step, is a permanent “tattooed body number invisible under normal ambient illumination”. When this step is taken, the Biblical prophecy of Revelation 13:16-18 will have been fulfilled. The technology is now in place for everyone to be marked for the purpose of buying and selling. And, as we show in the seminar, this computer technology operates on the basis of a numeric “666”.

The dogs of the forces of Anti-Christ are now straining at this leash.

At this point, we need to point out one very interesting development concerning the marking of everyone in the world. Every translation of Revelation 13:16 records that the mark of the Anti-Christ will be placed on the right hand or on the forehead of every person in the world, except for the King James Version. The King James Version states that this mark will be placed in the right hand or in the forehead. While New Age writings abound as to the plan to mark everyone for the purpose of buying and selling, most authors do not specify exactly how it is to be done. However, the technology exists now for such marking to be done in the skin, just below the service. Veterinarians have perfected the technology to implant a programmable chip inside the skin of dogs and cats for the purpose of tracking them should they become lost. These chips, called Electronic Identification Transponders, are designed to identify animals instead of the normal name tags for dogs and cats or brands for cattle. These transponders are now encased in tiny glass tubes which are approximately the size of a grain of rice. Veterinarians are now using specially designed hypodermic needles to implant these devices; however as technology improves and as more transponders are built, both the size and the cost will dramatically shrink.

Proponents of these new transponders point out several inherent advantages over tags now being used.

  • . They contain information specific to the animal in which they have been implanted.
  • . This specific information can be updated each time some new action has been taken with the animal, such as all vaccinations, or when a diagnosis has been made, followed by all pertinent follow-up medical information.
  • Since these transponders become a part of the body of the animal, they cannot be lost. This last advantage is of most interest to the born-again believer, because this is undoubtedly the argument which the Anti-Christ will use. After all, if the device of Anti-Christ is partly economic in its plan, so that no one can conduct any business without it, the problem of theft or loss of credit-type cards is very serious indeed.

The usage of this transponder device is spreading all over the world, as both the Pet and Animal Husbandry industries are proceeding full-speed ahead with this new and exciting technology.

The dogs of the forces of Anti-Christ are straining mightily against the restraints.

But, now let us return to the subject of population control. High technology is also making it possible for a future dictatorship to control its people to a degree not even contemplated in any previous age. But, we should not be surprised, as this type of unprecedented control is alluded to in the passage in Revelation 13:16-18, the passage which we have just been studying. This passage says that the False Prophet, acting on behalf of the Anti-Christ, will “compel” or force everyone in the world to take a mark without which they can neither buy nor sell. Only an absolute dictatorship, exercising unprecedented abilities of control over the population of the world, could exercise such finite control.

Think of the type of control over the people within the population which would be needed:

  • Government would have to control every person’s place of employment and place of residence.
  • Government would have to control the eating and spending habits of its people. A government which can exercise this type of control would be able to really have its people under its thumb.
  • Government would have to know the movements of its citizens to as close a degree as possible. They would certainly need to know the movements of those people who might pose a risk to its dictatorship, but history has shown that dictatorships develop such a condition of paranoia that everyone in the population is considered to be suspected of treason. Therefore, dictatorial governments have always placed a high priority in developing an internal police force whose sole function is to spy on individual citizens and organizations. The most infamous such organization in the Twentieth Century is the Russian KGB.

The government of Anti-Christ can also be expected to establish such a clandestine internal security force, but its capabilities would be sophisticated beyond any of its predecessors, with computer-aided technologies that will enable Anti-Christ to establish control unprecedented in history. This degree of control is an indispensable part of the reason he can force everyone in the world, both rich and poor, and small and great, to take a mark without which no one can buy or sell.

Do we see such technologies available today? Indeed we do. Consider the following lead story from “USA Weekend”, dated August 28-30, 1992, entitled, “They’re Watching You”.

The author states, “Thanks to computers, even the most personal information about your life has become just another commodity, bought and sold with ease.” Many examples were given. We will share only a few with you to prove our point.

* Actress Rebecca Schaeffer was murdered by an angry fan as she opened her door, responding to the doorbell. The investigation into her death revealed that her killer had tracked her through his computer in his apartment, many hundreds of miles away. “He spied on her through databanks that told him where she lived, her telephone number, whom she called, what car she drove, where she shopped.” Further he accessed credit files and saw that Schaeffer had dinner at a fashionable Beverly Hills restaurant, so he imagined that he had been with her, and had experienced a most romantic evening together.

Most of us have had no idea that such private information could be so easily accessible to anyone with a computer with burning zeal and with the knowledge about how to access this information. But, the author lists many more types of private information which is easily accessible through an average computer:

  • Credit files
  • Driving records
  • Employment history
  • Intimate financial details
  • Family make-up
  • Personal tastes and buying patterns
  • Health records, including the medication we take
  • Doctor and hospital records
  • Results of psychological and even AIDS tests
  • “Every time you give the U.S. Postal Service a change-of-address form, it is immediately rented to 23 information companies, which sell it to direct marketers, investigators, and anyone else who wants to keep tabs on you…There are upward of 5 billion records concerning the whereabouts and minutiae of each American, and information about each person is moved from one computer to another an average of five times a day. Says a report from the U.S. Office of Technology Assessment: ‘It’s virtually impossible for citizens to know where files about them exist, and nearly impossible for individuals to learn about, let alone seek redress for misuse.'”

There you have it, folks. Detailed intimate information about most adult citizens of the United States already exists in computer files, and is accessible to almost anyone who owns a computer and modem. Can you imagine the information which must be accessible to sophisticated government computers and their expertly trained operators? Only today, with our current computer systems throughout this country and throughout the rest of the developed world, is it possible to keep track of all the people in the world so completely that no one can buy or sell if they do not have the economic/religious mark in their right hand or their forehead.

Can you see the dogs straining at the leash?

We also see supernatural spiritual deception at an unbelievably high level. People are being deceived in so many ways that we simply do not have the time to really go into it during this program; however, next week, we shall examine this important subject in detail. Please tell an unsaved friend of this topic so they can tune in next Saturday. There is, perhaps, no more important subject, because people’s eternal souls are at stake. Remember, the one hallmark characteristic of the New World Order/Great Tribulation, is personal deception. This deception would be so sophisticated that even the elect of God would be deceived were it not for the supernatural intervention by the Holy Spirit.

Remember also that we are engaged in the greatest spiritual battle the world has ever seen. Are you spending time in Bible study and prayer on a daily basis? Have you given your heart, mind, and soul completely to Jesus Christ, trusting in Him and Him alone, for your salvation? The time of Grace in this Church age is fleeting quickly; you cannot put off the decision very much longer, or you will be left behind during the Rapture. A Christian author has written a book on this subject, just released, entitled, “Get Right Or Get Left”. I believe the title says it all. Completely give yourself to Jesus Christ today.

The dogs are straining at their leash.

THE CUTTING EDGE

This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.

And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God’s people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.

Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God’s people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.

The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.

Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.

Since we started our Cutting Edge Radio programs, we have consistently attempted to show you scenes of current American life of which most of you probably were not aware. These scenes involve some of the most pernicious sins and some of the most anti-Christian values imaginable. Of course, we have done more than just inform you of what is happening, or threatening to happen; we have also shown you why. We have shown you that the driving force behind most of these heinous sins in America today is the New World Order, the kingdom of Anti-Christ. Before this kingdom can come into power, the original Western civilization, based upon Judeo-Christian values, has to be destroyed.

This destruction is apparently coming to its desired goal, as evidenced by President Bush and other world leaders announcing, in late 1990, that the world was entering into a New World Order. These repeated pronouncements would not have been made if the world’s leadership had not been convinced that it was time to begin the final phase of establishing the New World Order. Thus, we stand at a most critical moment in world history. The occultic leadership of today’s nations is mightily attempting to overthrow God’s system of individual sovereign nations, and establish their coveted New World Order. True Christians are attempting to fight back, finally realizing the type of battle in which we are engaged. In the epoch of history, this time is simply a snapshot; the Old Order is not yet fallen, even though under intense attack from all angles. The New World Order is straining, waiting to rush forward to eradicate the hated enemy and to establish their rule and their values upon the world.

The key question of the hour is simply this: Will Sovereign God allow this imposition of the Satanic New World Order with the resulting appearance of its Christ, Maitreya? Or, will God intervene again in world history to prevent such an occurrence, much as He did at the Tower of Babel? This question could be accurately framed in yet another way: Is God’s time table for the end of the age now, or at some future date? This is the focus of this message today. We are going to look at this specific snapshot of world history in which we are living, to attempt to determine whether sufficient evidence seems to exist which would point to one conclusion or the other.

Remember the snapshot which we are examining. The Old World Order, based upon Judeo-Christian values, is under attack by the forces of the New World Order, but not yet fallen. The forces of the New World Order, based upon Satanic values, are straining to rush forward at the first opportunity to eradicate their enemy and establish their own system and values. This is our snapshot we are looking at today.

Let us examine relevant Bible prophecies as we begin our study. Such an examination would present the proper framework for this study. Let us begin with the words of Jesus Christ, in Matthew 24, as He talks about that snapshot of world history, the approach of the end of the age. In verses 4-31, Jesus gives His disciples the various prophetic events which would herald the approaching end of the age. Then, in verses 32-36, Jesus says, “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.”

The key understanding from this Scripture is that all these signs must be occurring together before they qualify as fulfillment of these prophecies.

“So also, when you see these signs, all taken together, coming to pass, you may know of a surety that He is near, at the very doors.”

Here, Jesus is telling us several pertinent things.

  1. He is telling us to pay attention to that moment in history when all of the events of which He had just foretold would be coming to pass together. These events were both of a natural and a supernatural nature. Man conceivably could manipulate some events, such as war, rumors of war, and persecution. However, only God could cause the supernatural prophetic events to occur, such as earthquakes and famines.
  2. Jesus is further telling us that true Christians who are paying attention will know, with certainty, that the general time is approaching when the end of the age will occur. While Jesus then adds, in verse 36, that no one but the Father would know the exact time, He also stated, in Luke 21:28, “Now when these things begin to occur, look up and lift your heads, because your redemption (or deliverance) is drawing near.”

We have repeatedly stated during this program our strong belief that we can know Jesus is at the very doors because we can see all Jesus’ prophecies in Matthew 24 coming to pass together. We are at that particular snapshot of world history where the end of the age is nearly here, where the forces of Satan are nearly ready to take temporary control of the world away from the Old World Order established upon the foundation of Christianity.

The Apostle Paul casts further light upon this snapshot. In 2 Thessalonians, Paul talked of the appearance of Anti-Christ, which we know will occur at the very beginning of the transition between the Old World Order and the New. In chapter 2:3, Paul states, “Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come], and the man of lawlessness is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition)…”

Of course, Paul has just described the Anti-Christ, the one who will lead the world as dictator for the seven-year Great Tribulation. Paul continues, describing the many attributes of Anti-Christ in verse 4. Then, in verse 6, Paul gives us tremendous insight, when he states, “And now you know what is restraining him [from being revealed at this time]; it is so that he may be revealed in his own appointed time. For the mystery of lawlessness…is already at work in the world, but it is restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way.”

Thus, Paul uses the key word “restrain” twice in two sentences. Before we go on, we must examine the meaning and implication of this word. Since the core word of restrain is strain, I looked up the meaning in my “Webster’s Illustrated Encyclopedic Dictionary”. Strain, the verb, means “to stretch or force beyond the proper, reasonable, or legitimate limits”, or to injure or impair by overuse or overexertion”. This meaning totally fits the current situation with the forces of the New World Order; they are attempting to “stretch” or “force beyond the proper, reasonable, or legitimate limits”.

But, Webster’s adds one more meaning, “to pull forcibly or violently”. As an example, Webster’s uses the phrase “straining at the leash”. Now we are getting very close to the truth: The New World Order plans to use any means, especially force, to overthrow the Old Order and establish their New. These forces are like rabid attack dogs, straining at their leashes, waiting for the leashes to be removed so they can relentlessly move to the attack.

Webster’s then defines “restrain” as “the act of holding back…to limit or restrict”. Some force is holding back the forces of the New World Order, so that they have not yet attacked in full fury. Who is that force? The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit restrains evil so that it cannot reach a level which God does not allow. This Holy Spirit restraining power operates at both the individual and the national level. Since Pentecost, the Holy Spirit has worked primarily through his believers, the corporate body of believers, the Church. Throughout Western, and especially American, history, the Church has exercised tremendous influence upon people and institutions, to restrain evil.

However, since World War I, the influence of the true Church has been steadily declining, to the point where many people have concluded that the Church is no factor any more. Today, we shall take a quick look at current American society, to determine whether forces of evil are straining forward mightily, chaffing at the leash, anxious to destroy the old system so they can institute their New World Order. This is our snapshot of American society.

1. Value of Human Life

The Bible emphatically teaches that God has bestowed upon mankind a very special value which is to be respected by all other men in every age. Only man is so valued; no animal, fish, or fowl are bestowed with this God-given value. Why is man so valued? God gave the answer in Genesis 1:26-27: “God said, Let Us make mankind in our image after our likeness..So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Therefore, God set forth very special, and detailed, rules by which men were to treat other men. Men were not to lie to one another, or to steal from one another, and especially not to kill one another. Man was made in God’s image. But, this is not the only reason God demands that we place a very high value upon human life. Since only God could create life, God demanded that only He be allowed to take it. Only two exceptions were made: during war against enemy soldiers and after proper judicial proceedings were followed in cases involving crimes for which God demanded the death penalty.

In all other instances, God demands that He alone determine when and how each person dies. Do we see the forces of evil straining at the leash, attempting to overthrow this ideal? Indeed, we do, and they are of unprecedented power.

* Consider abortion, the killing of the unborn baby inside the womb. Presently, much of America allows this killing to occur at any time in the 9-months of pregnancy. We are now killing 1.6 million unborn babies every year. This means 3 babies are dying each minute in this country. Since the Roe vs Wade decision in 1973, we have killed over 30 million unborn babies. Adolf Hitler killed approximately 18 million people in his holocaust. This “Christian” nation has not only surpassed Hitler’s “accomplishments”, we have gone far beyond. As horrible as these statistics are, they do not represent the final goals of the people who are championing the New World Order. Their final goal is the elimination of two-thirds of the world’s population so a “sustainable” permanent population of only 2 billion people is maintained. After this goal has been maintained, abortion will continue to be practiced for the entire two thousand years that the New World Order is envisioned.

Abortion is thus planned to kill billions of unborn babies. We have barely scratched the surface.

Whose forces are opposing abortion? The Christian Church under many different banners, plus millions of born again believers who do not actively march against it, but who daily pray against it. The attitude of the pro-abortionists is so passionate, it borders upon a religious conviction. It is religious conviction — a Satanic force.

If the Christian Church and other Christian organizations were suddenly removed, the forces for abortion would instantly surge forward to take control.

* Consider Infanticide, the killing of the newly born baby after it has been born. Since this heinous practice is so shrouded in secrecy, we do not know how many babies are being killed in this manner; however, the numbers are serious enough for Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop to address this issue strongly in his book, “Whatever Happened To The Human Race?” Koop clearly stated that Infanticide was being regularly practiced in the United States. And Why are we killing these babies after they are born? For the same reasons we are killing them before they are born.

Once again, if the Christian Church were suddenly removed, the forces promoting this evil would surge forward, to not only intensify their efforts, but to move its practice out of secret and into public view.

* Consider the movement to convince people to kill themselves. The best-selling book, “Final Exit” has been on bookshelves for less than a year. Many people have followed the simple instructions on how to commit suicide. For right now, the emphasis is on those people who are terminally ill, or who are elderly. But, soon, people who are just handicapped in a certain way, in societies’ view, will be targeted. Even now, according to Holocaust survivor, Dr. Wolf Wofensberger, certain American hospitals and nursing homes are killing people in ways which are medically disguised. The last people to systematically do this kind of medical killing were the Germans, who started in their hospitals and nursing homes some ten years before Hitler came to power. Once Hitler conceived his Holocaust, he selected the doctors who had been secretly killing people to run his death camps. Dr. Lifton, who wrote an expose’ entitled, “The Nazi Doctors”, Hitler’s death camps would never have been able to kill so many people so quickly had it not been for the conditioning process of the general public which general Euthanasia had produced. America is trodding down precisely the same path, but why should we be surprised, because the New World Order is simply temporarily sanitized Nazism.

But, Dr. Wolfensberger states that American medical institutions are killing more people per year than the Nazis killed from 1939-45. Wolfensberger further says that the situation has deteriorated so badly that if any family is thinking about admitting any loved one into a medical institution, they had better be prepared to post a 24-hour guard at the bedside. Times are much later than we think.

* Consider organ donation. At our seminar, we use the very pertinent Omni Magazine article of September, 1987. The lead article of this prominent New Age magazine was entitled “Redefining Death: Last Rights”. This most revealing article was entirely on the subject of the organ transplant industry. As I read this material, I was reminded of the Scripture in Romans 6:23, that the “Wages of sin is death”. Remember, Western man has been taught Darwinian evolution now for well over 100 years, that there is no Creator, that man has simply evolved from lower animal life forms over a period of many millions of years.

A natural corollary to this nonsense is that man is no better than the animal, that his life has no special value which must be greatly respected. The life of a human being has no more intrinsic value than that of a cow.

The article describes organ transplants in vivid detail. It describes how persons who are involved in an auto accident, for example, and who suffer brain damage are prime candidates for the removal of all their transplantable organs, a procedure called “Organ Harvest”. This murder is more likely to happen if the accident victim has no relatives who can be readily located. Also, if you have an organ donor card or have the sticker on your driver’s license, you are more of a candidate for organ harvesting. Of course, the cause of death will be listed as something totally medical, which will be logically an outgrowth of the auto accident.

The major problem facing this Godless organ transplant industry is that there is so much of a demand and so little of a supply, especially a quality supply from people who have not abused their bodies. In order to attempt a solution, doctors have continually revised their definition of when death occurs. The Judeo-Christian definition of death is when the heart stops beating, a very simple condition which doctors can easily and readily determine. However, doctors have been able to move the public, over the past 20 years, to a very ill-defined definition of death. First, death was redefined as brain death; later, death was redefined as arousal, awareness, so that people who were in a vegetative coma could be declared dead. These people are highly valued by the organ-transplant industry, because their bodily organs are still perfectly healthy, even though their minds are apparently gone. The author of this article boldly stated that, soon, an entire supply-side industry would be created which would artificially keep these people alive in their coma, until the time had come to harvest their organs. Wall Street, the author continued, would eagerly pump millions upon millions of dollars into this venture because they would recognize the profit potential.

The only reason this information isn’t more widely reported is that the public isn’t quite ready for it. Also, the Christian Church would react strongly against it for the same reasons it is now acting against abortion. But, the dogs are straining at their leash, waiting for the precise moment when they can leap forward to establish their new industry, their new definitions of death, and their values.

* Consider “fetal tissue” research. Medical researchers have reportedly discovered that the tissue from unborn babies’ bodies contain high levels of certain chemicals which are later lost as the child grows older. These chemicals are supposedly very helpful in treating diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimers. If the tissue from an unborn baby were to be removed and transplanted into the body of an adult suffering from one of the above diseases, the disease could either be cured or the sufferer could experience dramatic improvement.

Of course, the medical researchers are quick to point out that they do not kill unborn babies for this tissue, but rely upon the carcasses of aborted babies. Even if this were true, if medical science were to discover more uses for baby tissue, there would be even more clamor for aborted babies or for babies to be grown for the express purpose of killing at the right time for the tissues. Wall Street would most definitely be most interested in this industry. I can just see the dogs straining at their leash.

2. Christian values are under attack as never before. People who still hold to such values are ridiculed and are demeaned horribly. The media has developed a technique of asking questions in such a manner as to be demeaning, with a certain look of the eyes and a tone of the voice, which instantly demeans the person under attack. Consider just a few instances of Christian values under attack.

* God has revealed that He is an unchanging God, Who has written an unchanging document called the Holy Bible. Jesus said that, even though all heaven and earth would pass away, His Words would never pass away. This belief has spawned the concept that God’s values and commandments were eternal, and were to be obeyed by generation after generation. Today, however, the New Age Movement has succeeded in teaching that there are no absolute values, no absolute right or wrong. Rather, what is right or wrong depends upon the situation in which one finds themselves, or depends upon the person(s) involved. We call this “situational ethics”, and believe me, it is Satanic to the core. God speaks to this issue directly in Isaiah 5:20-21, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil…Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes…” This is precisely what the New Age Movement has done in redefining all the traditional values and words to more properly set the stage for the kingdom of the Anti-Christ.

Today, our society is experiencing such great distress and crime because so many people have bought into this lie. consider some of these problems:

* Murder — not only is this type crime a direct outgrowth of not holding to God’s absolute command, it is a crime reflecting the hatred which Satan has toward the man who was created in God’s image. I am convinced that Satan’s ultimate goal is the total elimination of all men on this earth. Jesus seemed to speak to this subject in Matthew 24:22, when He said that, if He did not return when He planned, no human being would be left alive on this earth.

However, as bad as murder has now become, the ultimate goal of the New World Order has not been realized. We can see this goal in their writings. The New Age Movement teaches its adherents that there is no permanent death; rather, after physical death, the soul of each person goes into the reincarnation cycle, to await physical incarnation into another body through the birth process. A corollary to this lie is that reincarnation voids any concept of murder. There can be no murder, if all you are doing is releasing that victim’s soul into the reincarnation cycle a little earlier than they had expected. This is one of the cardinal teachings of the New Age Movement and the Secret Societies. Any of you who are familiar with history will be chilled to the bone at this point, because you will remember that this was precisely the teaching from the Nazis during the German Holocaust. Nazism taught reincarnation. Therefore, no Jews, for example, were being murdered; rather, they were just being made to experience, as an entire race, their accumulated Karma, so that when their souls came back into incarnation through the reincarnation cycle, they could come back as Aryans. This is why the “cleansing action” in which the Nazis were engaged was beneficial for both the earth and the victims.

This is precisely the goal of the New World Order, and it can be clearly seen in their writings. They foresee the need to cleanse as many as 4 billion people. The dogs are straining at the leash, restrained only by their perception that the forces opposing them are still too strong for them to fully implement their vision.

* Consider sexual activity. God forbids it except in the boundaries of marriage. However, Americans since the late 1960’s have been following the motto, “If it feels good do it”. Sexual activity between man and woman outside the bounds of marriage has become so commonplace that the act seems more animalistic than human. Christian values of loyalty to ones spouse has also diminished so dramatically that divorce has become rampant. Families have been torn asunder by the millions, and the children who are caught in the middle suffer enormous permanent damage psychologically and emotionally.

Such open and free sex has also given rise to an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases, the latest of which is AIDS. Former Surgeon General Koop warned, just prior to his leaving his position, that this current generation of American teens could be the first generation in history to be wiped out by disease. Yet, even though this is the case, our entire media and entertainment industries continue to actively promote the very attitudes which have created the monster we have just described to you.

And still the ultimate New World Order goal has not been realized: the complete, permanent destruction of the Family as an institution. Their vision is that procreation will be carried out as a program of the Dictatorial State. After birth, the parents would give their children over to the State baby-care facilities as they returned to their jobs. The State would raise the child, educate the child, and instill their values in the child. Communism was only partially successful in their attempts at achieving this goal, but the New World Order will be even more ruthless in eradicating the God-ordained Family.

The dogs are straining at the leash.

The Family is also under attack from another source: the so-far successful attempt to portray the homosexual and lesbian lifestyle as normal, healthy, and as valid as God’s ordained heterosexuality. This process has gone so far that many states have enacted special legislation to give homosexuals special rights that the rest of the population does not have. Our entertainment media is actively writing scripts which give validity to homosexuality. Our public school curricula has been rewritten so that homosexuality is taught as being normal and valid. And yet, the ultimate goal of the New World Order has not yet been achieved: To use this issue to finally knock the Family institution to the ground, and to bring homosexuality to the forefront where it is completely accepted publicly and without any restraints. It is no secret that one of the major goals of the homosexual movement is to wipe out all laws against this sex activity between anyone of any age in any location.

The dogs are straining at the leash.

The Bible foretells that the False Prophet, acting on behalf of the Anti-Christ, will force everyone in the world to take a physical mark in their right hands or on their foreheads, without which no one can buy or sell anything. Biblical scholars have maintained this situation could never come about unless the economies of the world have been changed to a cashless basis. Until the advent of the computer, no one understood how this cashless situation could be achieved. Now we understand. Computers are already recording sales in the marketplace through credit and debit cards. New World Order writings have been talking about the ultimate goal of a total elimination of cash since the early 1960’s. We are nearly there. Every day, more and more people are being conditioned to the concept of buying and selling without cash.

However, since the New World Order of the Anti-Christ is planned to be the most effective and sophisticated dictatorship the world has ever seen, we should not be too surprised to discover that this advance toward a cashless society will also enable Big Government to keep track of its people in a most sophisticated way. Every person’s actions will be recorded electronically every day. No one will be able to carry out any concrete detail without that activity being recorded permanently. The ultimate dictatorship will have been created.

The dogs are straining at the leash.

There are many more instances where the forces of the New World Order are straining at the leash in unprecedented ways and with unprecedented force. Once the Holy Spirit removes His restraining power completely, these forces will surge forward on all fronts simultaneously. At this point, the world will be plunged into the final spiritual and physical darkness of which prophecies foretell. We believe this will final removal of the restraining action by the Holy Spirit will occur with the removal of the Christian believers through the Rapture.

The very fact that we can see such unprecedented evil straining against God’s leash in so many different areas is one more indicator that the Rapture of the Church is imminent. When the Rapture takes the Church out of the world, the dogs will be released from their leash.

The Great Tribulation will then be free to begin.

THE CUTTING EDGE

This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.

And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God’s people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.

Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God’s people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.

The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.

Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.

Since the beginning of our radio program, we have been showing you an America of which most of you were unaware. We have shown how this nation has rejected our original foundation of Judeo-Christian values and had replaced them with actual Satanic values. This single act has resulted in many other problems with which we are now struggling: Divorce and the breakup of the traditional family, drugs, alcohol, crime of every type, the acceptance of homosexuality, and many others. For this dramatic denial of our original Christian values, America richly deserves God’s physical judgment.

Also from the beginning, we have shown how America is leading the world into the New World Order, which is the Biblical Great Tribulation. As we know, the Bible calls the Great Tribulation the greatest time of God’s judgment upon the entire world that mankind has ever seen, coupled with the most murderous campaign of extinction ever carried out by any leader anytime or anywhere. Of course, this leader is the Anti-Christ, the one whom the New Agers call Maitreya.

If we are truly at the end of the Age as we believe we are, we know we are headed for massive judgment from God. And finally, we know that the New World Order plans to reorganize the world into 10 Super-Nation states immediately after officially establishing the United Nations as the One-World Government. This act will be the literal fulfillment of the prophecy of 10-toes (Daniel 2:28-48) and the 10-kings prophecy (Daniel 7:1-28). God foretells in these prophecies that three of these 10 nations will immediately be destroyed after the world is reorganized. This destruction is so complete, it sounds like war, which is consistent with God’s revelations concerning the events of the Great Tribulation.

According to the New World Order reorganization plan, America will be part of the North American Super-Nation, along with Canada and Mexico. Will America be one of these three super-nations which are destroyed? Today, we will show you, in detail, that America may be the Economic Babylon of Revelation 18. We believe this prophecy fits this country exactly, so precisely that it could refer to no other nation on the earth today.

Revelation 18 describes destruction by fire–God’s fire–of “Babylon the Great”, an evil system that has greatly stirred God’s wrath.

We need to compare the “Babylon” of Chapter 17 and the Babylon of Chapter 18. These two Babylons are not the same for following reasons:

  1. `And after these things…’ (18:1). The events described here will not take place until after the events of Chapter 17 have been fulfilled.
  2. Names in the two chapters are different. The `Babylon’ in Chapter 17:5, is named `Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots.’ We know this Babylon is religious by the words `Mystery’ and `Mother of Harlots’. But, the term in Chapter 18:2 is merely `Babylon the Great’. The Babylon in Chapter 18 is a commercial Babylon.
  3. Babylon, the harlot of Chapter 17, will be destroyed by the kings (rulers) of the earth. The Babylon of Chapter 18 will be destroyed by God’s cataclysmic judgments.
  4. The Babylon of Chapter 17 will be destroyed by the kings of the earth, who rejoice in her destruction. But, in Chapter 18, the kings and the merchants of the earth lament and weep for the destroyed Babylon. (18:15-19)
  5. Finally, common sense tells us that, once something is destroyed, it is gone. For the Babylons of Chapter 17 and 18 to be the same, the system would have to be destroyed twice. This makes no sense whatever.

Now let us begin our study, verse by verse.

THE HEAVENLY ANGEL WHO DELIVERS GOD’S JUDGMENT POSSESSES GREAT (SPECIAL) POWER OR AUTHORITY.

(18:1) “And AFTER these things, I saw another angel come down from heaven, having GREAT power; and the earth was filled with his glory.” God has evidently given a special power, to this angel–hence, the words “having great power”.

THIS NATION BABYLON HAS BECOME INHABITED BY SATAN AND HIS DEMONS

(18:2) “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, `Babylon the great is fallen, and is become the (resort) of (demons), and the (dwelling place) of every foul spirit, and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird.'”

This Babylon has become thoroughly inhabited by Satan and his demons. Remember our earlier discussions of such disgusting, vile American sins, the very nature of which are filled with demons and their activity? These sins have become so pervasive that God is finally moved to physical judgment.

This Nation Is THE CENTRAL NATION In The World.

(18:3) “For all nations have drunk of the wine and the wrath of her (passionate unchastity), and the (leaders) of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the (businessmen) of the earth (have become) rich through the abundance (excessive luxury) of her delicacies.”

This is another powerful, overflowing statement. This city/country is THE CENTRAL nation in the world at this time.

  • Businessmen of other nations have become excessively, wantonly, filthy rich in their trade with Babylon.
  • Babylon must be THE richest nation on earth.
  • Babylon must possess an abundance of cash and must be so willing to spend it, that this process enriches the leaders and the businessmen of the world.
  • Babylon must be a consumer country without equal, repeatedly buying, using, discarding, and buying again.
  • Many Babylonian citizens must also buy merchandise which they do not need. automobiles, T.V. sets, VCR’s, homes, furs, expensive clothing, toys, and yachts.

Consider LEADERSHIP. Babylon is clearly the world leader in two areas symbolically mentioned. (1) Wine–values, ideas, culture. (2) `Delicacies’ are commercial. The world has reached this point–with America.

The New Age editor of “USA Today” describes this trend:

Global communications, universal trends, and common aspirations are making us more alike than we are different. We gradually are becoming one world.

More and more people are:

  • Eating the same foods.
  • Reading the same books.
  • Watching the same movies.
  • Listening to the same music.
  • Enjoying the same sports.
  • Sharing the same dreams and drives.
  • We share technology…
  • We share high-speed transportation…”

“Much of the common ground comes from the GLOBAL SPREAD of U.S. pop culture–which has become EVERYBODY’S culture. …It’s a WORLDWIDE network of shared experience.”

“USA culture has become a WORLDWIDE culture…”

The Biblical definition of `idolatry': I John 5:21, “Little children, keep yourselves from idols–false gods,” Literally means, from anything and everything that would occupy the place in your heart due to God, from any sort of SUBSTITUTE for Him that would take FIRST place in your life.

What is it that the USA has exported to all the nations of the world? We have exported our popular culture, with its values of supremacy of self, and of satisfying oneself completely, instantly. We have exported to the entire world our god of self.

GOD CALLS HIS CHRISTIANS OUT OF BABYLON BEFORE HE EXECUTES JUDGMENT.

(18:4)–“I heard another voice from heaven saying, `Come out of her, MY people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.'”

This message is clearly a warning to Jesus’ people to stop their participation in the wickedness of this society, so they may escape the Godly wrath about to fall. Christians may have to quit their jobs, lower their lifestyle, or change their life goals. Many Christians today are winking at sin in their lives. They may be committing sin just by the nature of their jobs. For example, no Christian can work in a liquor store, or in an `Adult Only’ bookstore. If the very nature of your job requires you to participate in sin, you must NOW COME OUT of that job, or face the certainty of incurring God’s eternal judgment.

Also strongly implied in this passage is that conditions of life will appear to be very normal, until God’s judgment suddenly falls in a single day. (Luke 17:28-30).

Herein lies God’s PRINCIPLE of judgment: God will issue repeated warnings to repent before destruction. These warnings will be given to and through His. But, He has set a specific DAY for destruction. That day will dawn as any other–the sun will come up; the skies will look normal; people will be going to work or to school; traffic jams will be occurring; businesses and factories will be operating; trains, planes, and busses will be running; Wall Street will be busy.

This day upon which God’s judgment will fall will look and feel like any normal day. There will be no special, visible warning.

And, destruction will be total.

BABYLON’S SINS HAVE PILED UP FROM EARTH TO HEAVEN. THE TIME HAS ARRIVED TO CALL THEM UP FOR REMEMBRANCE.

(18:5)–“For her crimes and transgressions–are piled up as high as heaven and God has remembered her wickedness and her crimes–and calls them up for settlement…”

This is a statement of staggering proportions. How high is it from earth to heaven? When these sins are stacked, they literally reach from earth to heaven, according to God’s accounting.

God DOUBLES The Punishment Which This Nation Is To Receive.

(18:6)–“Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double.”

Our destruction will be by both massive nuclear blasts and earthquakes. Dr. Einstein clearly proved that a small nuclear blast on the right place on an earthquake fault would produce earthquakes of such magnitude as to displace entire continents. The North American continent is covered with many such faults, from sea to shining sea. Thus, America would be doubly-destroyed, just as God foretold. Our destruction will be by both massive nuclear blasts and earthquakes.

Further, I understood God’s reasoning in doubling America’s punishment. America has led the way in originating and thoroughly disseminating spiritual lies and the love of the world, to our children and the children of the world. These children then grow to adulthood to pass these un-Christian values to their children.

How many children’s eternal souls have been lost through:

  • Humanistic, Godless public school teaching.
  • Alcoholism
  • Drugs
  • T.V.
  • VCR’s and video movies.
  • Ouija board games; Dungeons/Dragons
  • Rock music, with all its horrific themes.
  • Country music, with its themes glorifying alcohol and those `cheating’ songs.

America’s leadership in these sins has been instrumental in leading untold millions, perhaps billions, of precious souls into eternal Hell. Is it any wonder that God singles her out for “double” punishment?

BABYLON BOASTS PROUDLY IN HER HEART OF HER RICHES, BELIEVING SHE WILL CONTINUE FOREVER IN HER PROSPERITY.

(18:7)–“How much she has glorified herself, and lived (luxuriously), so much torment and sorrow give her; for she says in her heart, `I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.'”

Many of my friends believe that this good life will never end. Certainly, the very rich believe it with all their heart. Americans still lead the world in the wealth of her businessmen.

The number of billionaires per country.

USA 40+

Japan 24

West Germany 13

United Kingdom 7

Hong Kong 6

Canada 6

Saudi Arabia 5

American businessmen still hold the predominate wealth in the world. What is the attitude on the part of Americans toward this wealth? They believe they need nothing else and that this good time will never end.

This passage also implies that, at the time of God’s destruction, this nation will be at her HEIGHT of power and monetary influence. Is America at her economic zenith now, or are we in serious decline?

“…The average American has NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD. By almost any measure of health and wealth…we are demonstrably better off now than in the…50’s and 60’s.

  • Our incomes are up…
  • We have more opportunities
  • We can choose among more things to buy..
  • The average American commands TWICE AS MUCH buying power today as in 1962, despite inflation and higher taxes…”
  • Employment benefits are twice as large a share of total compensation as they were 35 years ago…
  • Counting government subsidies, 1 in 10 Americans today is poor, versus 1 in 5 in 1960…”
  • We can expect to live 5 years longer
  • Infant mortality…fell by 50% during the 70-80’s. * Fewer adults die of heart disease or in accidents * Medical costs have soared, but many more Americans can get care when they need it…because of Medicare, Medicaid…as well as a widening umbrella of private insurance plans…85% of Americans have some form of coverage, compared with 70% in 1962. Poor Americans have made the biggest gains.”
  • It takes the average family 23 weeks of income to buy that average car now, versus 26 weeks in 1960…”
  • Homes are less affordable than in the 1960’s…but more Americans own their own homes..
  • The average apartment today is newer, more spacious, and more stuffed with amenities than in 1960.”

“The old in America work less and live longer, and at the same time, they are wealthier and more independent than ever before…today’s elderly have piled up assets like no other generation of oldsters in history…”

America is now at her zenith of economic power, even though we are currently struggling with recession and loss of jobs.

GOD’S JUDGMENTS FALL IN ONE DAY UTTERLY DESTROYING BABYLON.

(18:8)–“Therefore, shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for (mighty) is the Lord God who judges her.”

At this point, carefully consider the statement of God in Jeremiah 50:25, “The LORD hath opened his armory, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts.” This passage could read, “The Lord has opened His armory, and has brought forth [the nations who unknowingly] are the weapons of His indignation and wrath…” Amazing!! God has used men and nations to accomplish His will in most instances when He delivers His wrath.

Historically, no nation has ever been utterly destroyed in one day. The single-day destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, who were destroyed by a small primitive nuclear weapon, was actually a destruction which occurred within a SINGLE HOUR. As we look ahead to verse 10, God further narrows Babylon’s destruction to a single hour. The nature of nuclear destruction is complete, utter devastation, within seconds and minutes. This destruction occurs from blast, radiation, and (fire)–hotter than the sun’s surface.

This is the first, and only, time in world history that an ENTIRE nation could literally be destroyed in a single hour–with massive nuclear weapons.

EARTH’S LEADERS BEMOAN BABYLON’S DESTRUCTION.

(18:9)–“And the rulers and leaders of the earth, who joined her in her immorality [idolatry] and luxuriated with her, will weep and beat their breasts and lament over her when they see the smoke of her conflagration.”

This nation provided great leadership and she was the economic engine of the world. World leaders are weeping because this loss threatens their own luxurious wealth. Does America really buy from all other nations of the world to such a degree?

“…The Third World now relies upon the United States to buy 65% of its manufactured exports, compared with only 45% in 1979.”

The USA imports more than both Japan and West Germany combined. Remember Jesus’ words, “…no one will buy their cargo anymore…”)

Country Exports Imports

USA 322 Billion 460 Billion

Japan 265 Billion 187 Billion

W. Germany 323 Billion 236 Billion

Remember, the key to this prophecy is on imports from other nations. This Economic Babylon undoubtedly has a very large Import imbalance, as she imports so much merchandise from the rest of the world.

Finally, look at the word `conflagration’–the inevitable white plumes formed by a nuclear explosion.

EARTH’S BUSINESSMEN BEMOAN BABYLON’S FATE. IMMENSITY AND COMPLEXITY OF BABYLON’S ECONOMY IS DESCRIBED.

(18:10-17a) — “They (the rulers of the earth in verse 9) will stand a long way off, in terror of her torment, and they will cry, `Woe and alas! The great city! The mighty city, Babylon! In one single hour, how your doom (judgment) has overtaken you. And earth’s businessmen weep and grieve over her, because no one buys their (cargo) any more.”

God then describes the extent of the economy of this nation, and it is huge. We do not have the time to read this text in detail, but we encourage you to read it, in verses 12-14.

God’s judgment pronouncement is severe:

“The ripe fruits and delicacies for which your soul longed have gone from you, and ALL your luxuries and dainties, … are lost to you, never again to be recovered or experienced.” `Because, in one [single] hour, all the vast wealth has been wiped out.'”

Now consider some pertinent points of this passage:

I. In verses 10 and 15, God says that the rulers and the businessmen are standing a “long way off” in their intense lamenting over the loss of this great nation. Look at a world globe. The North American continent is UNIQUELY SURROUNDED on all sides by immense bodies of water. The great majority of our commercial trade is done with two major parts of the world–Asia to the West, across the Pacific Ocean; and Europe, to the East, across the Atlantic.

II. Verse 11: this great nation was unique. She alone bought such a huge amount of the cargo from the other nations of the world. No nation could replace her.

Only America is EXTREMELY DEPENDENT upon consumer purchasing for the health of her economy. Two-thirds of our total economic activity is generated by consumer spending.

Other statistics which show clearly that America is unique in the world’s economy.

Compare the wealth of nations in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP). Assign the US an index score of 100…Listed below are the scores of the other nations.”

India– PPP 17 Red China– PPP 19 S. Korea–PPP 31

Taiwan– PPP 36 Singapore– PPP 46 USSR– PPP 47

Italy– PPP 54 Hong Kong–PPP 58 Britain– PPP 66

E. Germany– PPP 70 Japan– PPP 77 France– PPP 79

W. Germany–PPP 84

3. America’s loss to the world’s economy would be devastating. The world would lose THE MOST PRODUCTIVE agricultural exporting continent in the WORLD.

Turning back to Revelation 6:4: the second rider out of heaven was on a flaming red horse; this rider carried a huge sword, bringing great war upon the earth, so that men slaughtered one another. If we understood that this great slaughter was the utter destruction of Canada and the USA in Chapter 18, then we could easily see how Revelation 6:5-6 and 6:8 could be fulfilled literally and quickly. Revelation 6:5-6 describe famine and subsistence living for the world’s people. This scenario would certainly happen quickly, once the world’s most productive agricultural continent, and the world’s most important economic engine, was removed. Instantly following the nuclear annihilation of North America, the stock markets and economies of Europe and Asia would collapse, plunging the global economy into the deepest economic depression ever.

The literal fulfillment to Revelation 6:8 would quickly follow–famine, plague, disease.

The economy of this great nation is described in 18:12-13, and 16, as vast, multifaceted economy. The key emphasis is on the volume of merchandise which this economy IMPORTS.

  • Iron is specifically mentioned
  • This economy also bought and sold luxurious products: perfumes, incense, ointments.
  • An immense agricultural economy is also described:
  • Fine flour and wheat
  • Cattle, sheep, and horses.
  • This economy also imports and exports `chariots’ or `conveyances’. Our modern vehicles of `conveyances’–cars, trucks, planes, buses, tractors. Imports of this type of product into and out of the American economy is enormous.

SHIP CAPTAINS, NAVIGATORS, AND CREWS BEMOAN BABYLON’S FATE

(18:17b-19)–“…And all ship captains and pilots, navigators, and all who live by seafaring…stood a long way off, and exclaimed as they watched the smoke of her burning, `What city could be compared to the great city!’ And, they threw dust on their heads, as they wept and grieved, exclaiming, `Woe and alas, for the great city, where all who had ships on the sea grew rich through her extravagance from her great wealth! In one single hour, she has been destroyed, and has become a desert.'”

Babylon was unique in that she imported/exported most of her trade via the sea. As we have already stated, only America is so uniquely situated geographically that she has to carry her imports so completely via the ocean.

In 18:9, 15, and 19: the leaders, businessmen, and ship-owners able to see the smoke of this nation’s burning. Not even huge pillars of white nuclear smoke, rising over America, could be seen with the naked eye 2,000-4,000 miles away. This viewing of the smoke from such great distances can only occur today, with TV transmissions from orbiting satellites.

* The very end of verse 19: This destruction has made this nation `a desert’. One of the effects of nuclear explosions, especially at the point of impact, is the formation of glass and sand.

BABYLON WILL BE DESTROYED BY GREAT VIOLENCE AS THOUGH A MIGHTY MILLSTONE WERE CAST INTO THE SEA.

(18:21)–“And a MIGHTY angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, `Thus, with such violence, shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be heard no more at all.'”

This destruction of this nation will evidently be of UNPARALLELED VIOLENCE, producing a destruction, the likes of which have NEVER been seen BEFORE in world history.

EVERYTHING COMPRISING A CIVILIZATION IS GONE FOREVER.

(18:22-23a)–“And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee…”

BABYLON’S GREAT BUSINESS LEADERS WILL BE DESTROYED FOR THE WAY IN WHICH THEY MISLEAD OTHERS.

(18:23b)–“…for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

The United States of America has led the world into this Satanic New World Order, both in terms of national political and economic leadership, but mostly in the leadership of values. People all over the world have yearned to be like America, as they have seen our wealth, success, and power. Such a position draws people to emulate, to allow themselves to be deceived.

Such is the case today.

FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, YOU WILL BE ON

THE CUTTING EDGE

This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.

And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God’s people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.

Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God’s people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.

The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.

Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.

This week, there are two issues which are dominating news: The Democratic National Convention, which opens its Presidential Nominating Convention, and the new government in Israel. We will focus upon these two issues predominately and then will go to other interesting news stories, time permitting.

First, let us examine some interesting facets of the Democratic National Convention. No one doubts the outcome of this convention, because Governor Bill Clinton, D-Arkansas, clinched enough Primary Delegates to win the Presidential nomination. Governor Clinton will win this nomination on the First Ballot. Furthermore, Governor Clinton has announced his choice of a Vice-Presidential running mate, fellow Southerner, Al Gore, D-Tennessee. Both these men are very liberal Democrats, committed to the traditionally liberal agenda of the Democratic Party, and both are very committed to the coming New World Order. For the purposes of the Convention and the campaign, however, this central fact will be hidden as well as possible by the election media of the Clinton campaign. However, let us look at some of the more important facts about Bill Clinton:

  1. Clinton represents the traditionally liberal view of the Democratic Party. He believes there is a natural limit on growth and industrial jobs. This translates into programs which punish big-business with needless red-tape and high taxes.
  2. Clinton also supports the traditionally high taxes on individuals as a brake on consumer spending. This belief is hidden by the lie that the Democrats favor increasing the taxes only of the rich. Contrary to popular opinion, the Democratically-controlled Congress bears at least as much blame for the $2.7 trillion deficit as do Presidents Reagan and Bush. Under our Constitution, only the House of Representatives can originate spending bills. Of course, neither Presidents Reagan and Bush ever really used the full power of their office to force a Balanced Budget. But Clinton is no answer; he is just more of the same, with a new and more handsome face.
  3. Clinton supports abortion as a woman’s inherent right. In fact, he went so far last week to say that he would impose an abortion litmus test for his Vice-Presidential running mate. Since he chose Gore, we can know, certainly, that Gore is also pro-abortion. There is no more burning issue for the truly born-again believer than abortion. Since the Bible is quite clear that the human soul is present at conception, abortion is murder of the innocent, purely and simply. Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973, we Americans have murdered over 30 million innocent babies per year, with the per-year numbers skyrocketing. America knows better, but we are choosing to ignore our Christian principles on this issue, primarily because the hearts of too many Americans are too hardened toward the Truth of Jesus Christ.

Further, abortion has an important place in the New World Order Plan to reduce the population of the world by two-thirds by the year 2,000 A.D.

A Clinton-Gore Administration would only perpetuate and accelerate the rate of abortion murders in this country. Please ignore the media hype which portrays the Clinton-Gore ticket as pro-Family. Nothing could be further from the truth, even though Tipper Gore has received much favorable publicity with her Anti-Rock Music organization, the Parent’s Music Resource Center (PMRC). Underlying attitudes in the Clinton/Gore agenda are the same attitudes of the New Age Movement/New World Order.

4. Hillary Clinton, Bill’s wife, is an interesting personality. She is a radical feminist in the mold of the National Organization of Women (N.O.W.). The Sun Chronicle, dated July 12, 1992, Page 25-26, reports that Hillary Clinton considers herself as “a career woman in the White House”. In fact, she seems to see herself as the power behind the throne in a Clinton Administration. Since this is the case, we should be concerned about enactment of radical Feminist agenda. Consider some of her views:

Hillary believes that “children have legal rights and that some decisions, such as those involving motherhood and schooling, should not be made unilaterally by parents.'”

This is an incredible statement, but the true meaning is obscured by typically New Age jargon. Let us decipher it for you. The statement:

a. “Children have legal rights” means that they have as much rights as do adults. In fact, New Agers believe that children are just adults in little physical bodies. As adults, children cannot be coerced into doing anything they desire to do, as long as what they want to do does not break any law. This literally means that children cannot be disciplined nor forced into any behavior they do not want to do, i.e., make their beds, do chores. And, of course, children can never be spanked. This belief most definitely is contrary to God’s Biblical admonitions on child-rearing. Thus, Hillary Clinton would heartily support the recent judicial decision in Orlando, Florida, where a judge ruled that an 11-year-old boy could sue his parents for “divorce”. (Sun Chronicle, July 10, 1992, page 3.)

These beliefs will literally tear the traditional family to shreds, but why should we be surprised? This goal has been in place since the 1776 formation of the Masters of the Illuminati, restated in 1848 with Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, and restated again and again in New Age writings. The family is one Institution, ordained by God in the Garden of Eden, that is still functioning today. But, the New World Order Plan is to finally destroy it.

b. “…decisions, such as those involving motherhood and schooling, should not be made unilaterally by parents.” This statement is the most incredible of all, and we need to examine it carefully, because it reveals much about the hidden agenda of Hillary and Bill Clinton, and of the New World Order. Decisions are naturally made by those who are in a position of authority, specifically, by those whose authority is in the correct position to make the decision in question. Traditionally, our system of government has carefully spelled out which types of decisions are to be made by which authority figures. For example, schools were held to be responsible for making decisions such as what type of textbooks to use and what requirements to set forth for graduation. Parents traditionally were given the authority to decide what religion to teach to their children or what discipline must be meted out. Traditionally, laws were passed which set forth these specific responsibilities and rights, and they forbade a higher, stronger authority from stepping into an area which had been reserved for a lower, weaker authority, and using this stronger power to force a decision of which it approves. Specifically, government, which would certainly be stronger than individual parents, was severely restricted as to when and how it could intervene in areas normally reserved for parents.

But, not according to Hillary Clinton and the New World Order Plan. She approves of a higher authority, i.e., the government, getting involved in decisions such as motherhood, how many children to have and what values they will be taught within the home, and schooling, i.e., which school they will be allowed to attend and what values the students will be taught. This is Big Brother Government at its worst and is perfectly in line with the New World Order Plan. The phrase, “decisions…should not be made unilaterally by parents” literally means that higher governmental authorities will step into the family situation in unheard of ways and dictate to the parents exactly how many children they may have and how their children will be raised, according to the values of the State. Welcome to the New World Order.

Do not be deceived: Bill and Hillary Clinton are 100% New World Order, as much as is President Bush. They are just a lot more open about it. But, this campaign will attempt to disguise their true intentions.

But, now let us take a quick look at Al Gore, Clinton’s Vice-Presidential running mate. Gore has been involved in New Age movement for many years. The single most-revealing glimpse of Al Gore’s true beliefs occurred in Newsweek Magazine, September 23, 1985, in an article entitled, “The Megatrends Man”, pages 60-61. This article specifically dealt with John Naisbett, noted New World Order author and lecturer. Naisbett had just authored the best-selling book, “Mega-trends”, which outlined the planned societal changes which were occurring that would bring the world into the New World Order. Naisbett convened a conference which he called an “Ideas Festival”. Newsweek reported that approximately 200 people attended this four-day conference. “Naisbett himself keynoted the expansive tone of the conference by declaring at the outset ‘We have to reinvent virtually the whole world we live in’…and Senator Al Gore of Tennessee, a friend of the Naisbetts, and one of the invited speakers, got into the swing of things by submitting that it was time to rethink the nation-state system’.”

It simply is impossible to find a more definitive quote than this one, that Senator Gore believes it is time we “rethink the nation-state system.” What does this phrase mean? It literally means that the present system of sovereign nations must be abolished and replaced by a One-World Government headed by the United Nations. To accomplish this goal, the New World Order Planners understand that they must abolish the present Constitutional form of Government in this country. In other words, Al Gore is one of those individuals who favor abolishing the present Constitution. Gore could not honestly take the oath of office, in which he swears to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States. We would literally be electing a wolf to protect the chicken house. And Clinton is a soul-brother to Gore on this issue.

Senator Gore was also the head of the American delegation to the now infamous Earth Summit in Rio in June. During the first week of the Summit, we devoted a program to studying the importance of the Earth Summit to the final implementation of the New World Order. After all, if the inhabitants of this earth are facing global environmental problems which transcend national borders, the only solution is an equally global government strong enough to force a solution. Thus, problems have been invented on the one hand and blown out of proportion on the other, to further the global New World Order. And Al Gore was the head of the American delegation. From beginning to end, paganism was the recognized religion of the conference. Ancient and primitive peoples were on hand, drumming their drums and chanting their mantras, in support of the Earth Summit. Speaker after speaker intoned the sacredness of these ancient pagan religions, and urging the peoples of the world to return them.

What did the “Christian” Al Gore say when he delivered his speech to this pagan summit? Did he reaffirm our Christian heritage and urge the summit attenders to consider and accept the Truth of the Gospel? No, he did not. Rather, Gore “called for a new spiritual relationship between man and earth”. He simply fell into line with all the other paganists at the Earth Summit.

Do not be deceived. Clinton-Gore, and the entire Democratic Party, is completely and openly supportive of the plan for the New World Order, with all the societal and governmental upheavals which this plan envisions.

Finally, The Sun Chronicle article, quoted above, dated July 12, 1992 ends with the statement that Bill Clinton believes steadfastly “that all people are good“. Of course, this belief cannot be from God, because God teaches throughout His Bible that all men are inherently evil. The best Scripture teaching this truth is found in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Certainly, the study of man’s history for the past 6,000 years shows the truth of God’s statement above. In fact, history is simply a study of man’s wars, with very few years of peace in between. In the Old Testament, God never told Israel to disarm in the face of her enemies. God knew the true condition of the heart of man.

But, New Age doctrine clearly states that man is inherently good, that he is perverted by his environment. This teaching was stated in 1776 by the Masters of the Illuminati, restated in 1848 by Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, and restated again repeatedly throughout the Twentieth Century by New Age writers. I believe this Satanic lie will be responsible for the New World Order suddenly breaking up into war, just as Biblical prophecy predicts. Remember, 100% disarmament is required before the world can move officially into the New World Order. The Plan envisions all nations surrendering their conventional and nuclear weapons to the United Nations, thus producing a worldwide nuclear free environment. Obviously, a country which had been able to hide a few nuclear weapons would be able to wreak tremendous devastation in a nuclear-free world, a condition to which President Bush has referred many times. Yet, the goal remains: 100% elimination of all arms.

How could responsible leaders persist in this goal, then? Because they sincerely believe man is inherently good, can be trusted to give up all nuclear weapons, and then be content to live in peace. American leaders strongly believe this about the Russian leadership, a leadership which has cooperated for over 70 years in the advancement of the New World Order. It simply is inconceivable to current American leaders of both parties that their Russian brothers-in-the-Plan would ever do anything but cooperate with the New World Order Plan completely. After all, man is inherently good, including the Russians.

And Bill Clinton believes this lie completely.

ISRAEL ELECTS NEW GOVERNMENT

In June, Israeli citizens went to the polls to elect their representative government. They returned the Labor Party to power after 15 years of power by the Likud Party. This result was not as surprising as was the margin of victory. Pre-Election Polls had shown that Labor was running ahead of Likud, but no one was prepared for the ease of victory. The “center-left Labor Party increased its strength in the Knesset from 39 seats to 44, while Likud dropped from 40 to 32.” (Newsweek, July 6, 1992, “A Mideast Peace Deal By November?”, p. 44-46).

This result gives the newly-elected Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin, a unique opportunity to assemble a working coalition which will not have to include the more radical Israeli religious organizations. These radical religious organizations had been able to influence Shamir’s governmental policies concerning the Palestinian “land for peace” issue. Rabin has stated many times that he is willing to consider “land for peace” as a viable path to achieving peace with its Arab neighbors.

And the Israeli citizens seem ready to take a risk for peace. Consider some internal realities which have brought Jewish citizens to this point:

  1. Israel has been shaken to its core by the Palestinian Intifada violent protests and by the sometimes seemingly brutal means of repression initiated by the Likud leadership.
  2. Israel is suffering from 11.6% unemployment, highest in history.
  3. Likud’s policy of establishing government housing in the so-called “Occupied Territories” had begun to backfire on Likud. Indeed, the large numbers of immigrants seemed to intensify anxieties between Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern European descent and the Sephradic Jews of Spain, Portugal, and the Arab lands.
  4. Many Israelis worry that Israel is losing its once-firm relationship with the United States, now the only Superpower left. Many Jewish voters blame Shamir for overzealous programs which unnecessarily damaged its relationship with the United States. Of course, President Bush and Secretary of State Baker deliberately fostered this belief by openly and boldly displaying great hostility toward Shamir and his government.
  5. Finally, former Prime Minister Shamir seemed too old and too out of touch to return to power. Rabin, on the other hand, seemed energetic for a man of 70 years. Since Rabin was a former General of the Jewish Defense Force and had received many adulations during the Israeli victory in the Six-Day War, Jewish voters trusted him to lead Israel firmly and wisely in the negotiations with the Arabs. Most Jewish voters desperately want peace with their Arab neighbors, but instinctively understand that their leadership must be very careful as to precisely how, and under what conditions, their leadership agrees to such a peace. Because Israel is less than the size of the state of New Jersey, she is very difficult to protect under the best of circumstances; if Israeli leadership makes just one tactical or judgmental error, the Arabs could conceivably wipe Israel from the map. Rabin, the general, was able to convince the voters he could map out just such a wise course.

From a Biblical perspective, of course, we understand that Israel is not ever going to be defeated and ejected from her land. In many instances in the Old Testament, God promised to return Israel back to her original land after He had completed His punishment of her. Hosea 3:4-5 speak beautifully to this return: “For the children of Israel shall dwell and sit deprived many days, without king or prince, without sacrifice…and without ephod…Afterward shall the children of Israel return and seek the Lord their God….and David their king; and come in [anxious[ fear to the Lord and His goodness…in the latter days.” (Amplified)

Hosea, penned almost 3,000 years ago, foresaw that Israel will come back to the land in the “latter days”, an event which our history books record as culminating on May 15, 1948. God repeatedly foretells that He will bring Israel back to the land in the latter days of time, but He also adds in Amos 9:14-15, “I will bring back the exiles of My people, Israel, and they shall rebuild the waste cities…plant vineyards…and make gardens..And I will plant them upon their land and they shall no more be torn up out of their land which I gave them, says the Lord your God.”

Did you catch that phrase, “and they shall no more be torn up out of their land..”? God is saying that, once He returns Israel back to their promised land, He would ensure that they would never again be thrown out. Recent history again records the truth of this prophecy as Israel won overwhelming military victories in 1948, 1967, and 1973 against crushing odds. Time after time, God intervened mightily against Arab armies to ensure the victory for Israel. If Israel is successfully attacked, defeated and destroyed, you can throw away your Holy Bibles, because God will just have proven to be both a liar and a God which has lost His sovereign control over the affairs of the earth.

Finally, God reveals in Obadiah 17 that the house of Jacob “shall possess their own former possessions”. In other words, when God returns Israel back to her ancient Promised Land, He promises to give them all their Promised Land. Did you know that present-day Israel is only a small fraction of that original land? The land which God gave to Abraham includes the southern part of Lebanon, stretches into Syria almost to the capital city of Damascus, and includes two-thirds of Jordan. Someday, under some circumstance, God will give this land back to the Jews. Radical religious groups take these prophecies very seriously and literally; they call this original land of Israel, “Greater Israel”. Former Prime Minister Shamir believes in this “Greater Israel” concept and vigorously pursued it during his administration. And believe me when I tell you that all Arabs clearly understand the “Greater Israel” concept, for it is their land which will be taken.

Prime Minister Rabin does not believe in the “Greater Israel” concept, at least not publicly. Therefore, if God chooses to deliver all the land back to Israel, probably as the result of war, God will receive the credit and the glory because “Greater Israel” will have been reborn in spite of opposition of the Arab and indifference of the Jew.

So, the stage is set for exciting times in the Middle East. Rabin and Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat seem determined to move quickly and decisively toward agreement on Palestinian self-rule. One of Arafat’s top aides is quoted as saying, “We shall meet [the Israelis] in Rome no later than July 21, working nonstop. We are going to race to the target date of November 1 to achieve Palestinian self-rule.” I find it interesting that there is such a thing as a target date of November 1 to achieving agreement. Agreement on Palestinian self-rule by November 1 would give President Bush’s reelection campaign a tremendous boost. It makes one think that Bush may have set this deadline.

I think it possible that, with Labor in power in Israel, the Plan toward achieving the New World Order can proceed full-speed ahead. This global plan has always been based upon the “Peace and Safety” formula, and this includes the Middle East. Quite frankly, the conservative Likud government of Shamir was standing in the way, because they were refusing to negotiate at all. Now, Israel can join with the other nations of the world in entering into agreements which shall achieve “peace in our time”. Can you imagine the euphoria which will break out when the intractable problem of the Middle East is solving through a “peace” agreement? The pent-up emotions of an entire world would simply break forth as a torrent. Finally, the peoples of the world would be able to say, “Thank God, we finally have peace and safety”.

However, we do not believe all is really well in the Middle East. There is the huge problem with the Arabs now possessing both atomic warheads and the missile system to deliver these warheads. We reported on this issue a few weeks ago. Remember the scenario? Breakaway Russian republics of Arab nationality have given Iran and Syria nuclear warheads. Then, last April, American Military Intelligence publicly reported that a North Korean freighter had set sail for the Middle East, probably for Iran. The contents of this freighter was reported to be advanced Russian-made tactical missiles, missiles so fast that American Patriot defense systems could not shoot them down and missiles that were extremely accurate. The U.S. Navy declared this freighter would be intercepted. However, on the day the interception was to occur, the U.S. Navy “lost” the freighter, allowing it to land in an Iranian port. Newspapers reported Military Intelligence experts as saying that the missiles were going to both Iran and Syria.

Now, Israel is facing the ultimate threat of nuclear war from her Arab enemies. How long will Israel wait before attacking to destroy these missiles? Remember that Israel has always maintained this type of vigilant preemptive attack posture. And remember that the wars of 1948, 1967, and 1973 were waged by the same Labor party that has just taken power under Rabin.

We believe it possible that the dream of Middle Eastern peace will seem tantalizingly close to being achieved, only to disappear under tactical nuclear war. Out of these broken dreams and the chaos of war, Anti-Christ may arise, and may personally lead Israel into a peace treaty, a treaty which will be personally guaranteed by the Super-Natural power of Maitreya the Christ. This type scenario is envisioned by New Age author, Peter Lemesurier, in his book, “The Armageddon Script”. In the final chapter entitled, “Time For Action”, Lemesurier outlines the Plan for Anti-Christ to appear in the midst of great chaos and violence, violence which even includes the destruction of the Dome of the Rock. Maitreya the Christ will win over Jerusalem first and then begin “laying further plans for world conquest”. And how long does Lemesurier envision this process will take? Seven years — precisely the same length of time God had prophesied for the Great Tribulation.

Watch the Middle East generally, and Israel specifically. The countdown to the appearance of Anti-Christ and the beginning of the Great Tribulation is centered around Israel.

THE CUTTING EDGE

This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.

And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God’s people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.

Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God’s people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.

The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.

Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.

We have repeatedly demonstrated how the planners of the New World Order have targeted children for intensive training and indoctrination. This should not surprise anyone, for it is from today’s children that tomorrow’s leaders arise, in all walks of life. Anyone seriously interested in effecting a fundamental change in the values of society, they must necessarily target children. Therefore, the leaders of the drive to the New World Order have targeted our children for a Values Change. This Values Change is not for the better, because the values toward which our children are being moved are the values of the Satanic New World Order. Please stay with us as we examine several ways in which our children, no, your children, are being taught the Satanic values of the New World Order.

Educators have long known that THE most effective way to teach anyone a concept is to have them act out the principles. This is called “Role Playing”, and believe me, it is effective. Adults, as well as children, learn more quickly, more completely, and with greater recall, when they learn using the “Role-Playing” method.

The Toy/Cartoon/Comic Book Industry incorporates all the elements of Role-Playing as the designers plan their appeal to children. A child’s mind is very active and creative, a fact which is well recognized by the industry. When a child plays with a toy which is supported by story lines from either TV or comics, the child will pretend that his toy can perform exactly as he has seen it perform in the cartoon or comic stories. The child literally creates his own story line around the toy, based upon what he knows its capabilities are in the comic or cartoon story line. The child literally steps into the story to become the character of the story, or the character which is piloting the vehicle. Whether this is good or bad depends entirely upon the subject matter of the story line. When I was a kid I played Cowboys and Indians and Cops and Robbers. Of course, no one ever got killed in any of these encounters, just wounded. These story lines were popular in comics and TV in my day.

Today, the situation is much different. Comics and TV, especially cartoons, depict stories which are definitely Anti-God and pro-Satan. Some examples of these type story lines are:

  • Masters of the Universe
  • She-Ra
  • My Little Pony
  • Smurfs
  • Dungeons and Dragons
  • Captain Planet
  • Most Walt Disney cartoons and movies

There are many, many more, but the common denominator is that the story lines of each of these characters depict graphic displays of the Powers of the Occult. For example, when you see objects and people flying through the air, this is called “Levitation”, an occultic phenomena possible for an adept in the Magic Arts to perform. However, children and adults are becoming increasingly comfortable with such occultic behavior without ever realizing it. This is called conditioning, a process so critical that the New World Order could not come into reality without it occurring. One of their major goals is “to condition a substantial proportion of the population of the world to accept the New World Order”.

Today, we will be discussing several of the current ways of conditioning, beginning with the breakfast cereal, Nabisco Frosted Wheat Squares. A wife of one of our deacons purchased this cereal from the grocery store without looking at the back of the box. The entire back of the cereal box was advertising a new toy called, “Monster In My Pocket”. She was disturbed by the appearance of these pocket-size monster toys. They seemed otherworldly, deathly, and demonic. Furthermore, the leader of these demonic creatures was a character called, “Great Beast”, whose major feature was that he had 7 heads. Since the Beast of Revelation 13, the Anti-Christ, is pictured as having 7 heads and 10 horns, this Great Beast character immediately caught her attention.

However, there is more, much more. Buried inside the box was a small colored comic book with the same title, “Monster In My Pocket”, issued by Harvey Comics, and carrying the Comics Code Authority Seal of Approval. We need to share with you some of the particulars of this story line, to demonstrate how your children are being manipulated and reconditioned, right under your nose.

First, please understand that this story is occurring in another physical dimension, much different than the human dimension. We can see this by the opening statement, “A time not long ago, in a world we dare not enter”. A common Satanic/New Age spiritual belief is that there are many dimensions of existence, separate from the human. Further, they believe that all periods of time are constantly still occurring. We see this in all the movies which feature time travel. “Monster In Your Pocket” is occurring in just such an another dimension of time and space.

Two leaders of the World Of Monsters are competing for control of the world’s monsters. One leader is named Warlock, and he wants to control the monsters of the world so he can use them to destroy all humanity. The other leader is named Vampire, and he wants to prevent this destruction. Thus, we have the old popular myth presented to us of “White Magic” versus “Black Magic”. White Magic seeks to use the powers and knowledge of the Occult for the good of mankind, while Black Magic practitioners seek to use this same power to destroy, kill, and enslave. This myth was created by Satan many thousands of years ago, and he has deceived many, many people. Biblical scholars have long maintained that there simply is no such thing as “White” Magic. Rather, there is only one practice of Satanism; anyone who believes in “White” magic is simply deceived.

Vampire, the leader of the Un-Dead, proposes a plan to Warlock, the leader of all Male Witches. Each one would canvass the earth for 2 weeks, calling supporters for each side. The armies for each side would meet “in the place where evil was spawned”; this place turns out to look a lot like Hell. The side with the greatest number of supporters would be declared the winner, and would be able to do with humanity what he wanted.

Vampire and Warlock immediately begin to visit their evil friends throughout the earth. Vampire is shown appearing only to one evil creature, but Warlock is shown appearing to three:

  1. Warlock appears inside a cave in Greece, to the legendary goddess, Medusa. According to Greek Mythology, Medusa did not have normal hair; rather, she had hissing snakes atop her head. I have not found any source which tells me how many snakes Medusa did have on her head, but in this story, she has 10 snakes. This is an interesting coincidence, because the Great Beast of this story line has seven heads. In Revelation 13, the Beast (the Anti-Christ) is shown arising out of the sea, having 7 heads and 10 horns or thrones, representing political power. In this story, we have the Beast with 7 heads and with the 10 horns represented with Medusa’s 10 serpents.
  2. Warlock appears to the Phantom of the Opera to enlist his support. THEN:
  3. Warlock enlists the support of the Great Beast himself. Is it also coincidence that the Great Beast is the THIRD power to be visited? The number 3 represents the Trinity, both for the True God and for Satan. I do not believe it an accident that the Great Beast of this story was the third ally which Warlock sought.

In keeping with the Biblical account of the Beast (the Anti-Christ) of Revelation 13, where would Warlock have to go to find the Great Beast? Revelation 13:1, states, “As I stood on the sandy beach, I saw a beast coming up out of the sea…” We would expect the Beast to be found in the sea; indeed, Warlock walked along the edge of the Pacific Ocean as he calls out, “Great Beast. King of the Monsters! Warlock calls.” Bubbling out of the water, the head, and only the head, of the Beast broke the surface of the Pacific Ocean. Warlock is shown standing on the nose of the Beast, barely above the water. As Warlock stands, facing the eyes of the Beast, I am drawn to the red centers of the eyes of the Beast. Something is very different about the shape of those pupils. Then, I realized that they were drawn in the shape of a hooded Satanist, with his arms outstretched above his head in a fan-shaped manner. Warlock is shown telling the Great Beast that they had “much to discuss”.

The story breaks away here to show some of the other Monster Beings which Vampire and Warlock are bringing together, to build support for their respective sides. A study of these characters is interesting, because it reveals those beings which the Satanic writers of this comic believe are allied with Satan:

  • The Swamp Beast
  • Vampiress
  • Cyclops
  • Gremlins
  • A mountain man, with six heads. The hair on each of these heads is hoary white with a full white beard and mustache.
  • Mummies, shown fully wrapped with linen
  • Ghosts
  • Half-human/Half-animal creatures

Finally, the time had arrived for all these assorted creatures of the occult to congregate in “the place where EVIL was born”. In the comic book, this place resembled Hell, with fire and confusion everywhere. Vampire has more creatures rallied to his support, but Warlock is treacherous enough to be ready with a spell to be cast upon Vampire and his supporters. What is this spell to accomplish? The spell is supposed to shrink Vampire and his supporters to pocket-size, and it does; however, Warlock miscalculated just enough to also turn himself and all his supporters into Pocket Size Monsters.

Thus, the story ends, at just the right point for Matchbox Toys to be able to sell their collection of “Pocket Size Monsters”. However, the damage to a child’s mind has already been accomplished. Any child who reads this story would have been exposed to an entire gamut of occultic lore. He would have seen worshippers of Satan cast into a light where they don’t look so bad, exemplified by the scene from Hell. Everybody seems to be having a good time. A child would also see spells being cast, with a funny ending. And finally he/she would also be conditioned to believe in a different version of the account of the prophesy in Revelation 13. He will have been conditioned to believe the deception.

But, one of the most fundamental lessons of this story is that we must be close to the Great Tribulation for Satan to begin to tell these stories in comic books, which parallel Biblical prophecy so carefully. However, comic books have been doing just this for almost 10 years now. Parents, if your child loves to read comic books, and is collecting them, read them. Find out just how anti-Christian these comics are. Understand why it is that your child doesn’t show the love for Jesus Christ that you want him to show. Remember, we are living in the age of the Mass Media, the only time in history where fulfillment of Jesus’ prophetic words in Matthew 24:12 has been possible: “the love of the great body of people will grow cold, because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity.” Sin that is so multiplied that it reaches everyone in the nation with overwhelming efficiency. Only today’s comic books, magazines, TV shows and movies, and the recording industry fulfill this prophecy completely.

And it is your precious child whose soul is being stolen for Satan. What are you going to do now to protect your child? This is spiritual warfare.

Over 100 years ago, Satan revealed to the Planners for the New World Order that extreme emphasis must be placed upon Education. This generation’s children become the next generation’s leaders in every area of a society’s life. Furthermore, people become very “set in their ways” after they reach a certain point in their life. They resist change particularly in areas of values, morals, and religion. They also teach their values to their children and great-grandchildren. Former Soviet Chairman Kruschev once lamented that Communism had been greatly stymied in its effort to reeducate the children towards the precepts of Communism. What was the source of this problem? Grand-mothers. When the kids would come home from their atheistic public schools, they would climb onto the lap of their kindly old grandmother, and she would tell them of the “good old days” of the Bible. She would virtually deprogram her grandchildren from all the atheistic nonsense they had just learned in school. It is no wonder that the New World Order will not let grandmothers do this to the children in the New World Order. According to their Euthanasia doctrine, kindly old grandmothers and grandfathers will be forced to “exit” to make room for the younger generations.

We will now be examining part of the curricula of a new Elementary-Level Reading and Writing Skills series called “Impressions”. Stand by for shocking news.

We will be quoting from two sources for this information:

1. A copy of an article in the AFA Journal (American Freedom Association), (dated January, 1991) supplied by an interested participant in one of our seminars. This AFA article is a reprint of an article in Focus on the Family Citizen Magazine, by Deborah Mendenhall.

2. A copy of the Impressions version of the old Christmas poem, The Twelve Days of Christmas. This version is called, “A Wart Snake In A Fig Tree”.

Let us begin with an examination of the Impressions Curricula. This curricula was written for grades One through Six, and is supposedly designed to teach comprehensive language skills, both reading and writing. To accomplish this laudable goal, stories are written for children to test their reading and comprehension skills. To enable the child to retain his/her peak interest, many of these stories are written in the first-person narrative, so that the children will feel that they are a part of the story. So far, so good. What I have just described to you is simply good, fundamental teaching skills.

The problem begins with the type of first-person narratives that are being utilized. These stories are first class occultism, teaching children “how to cast spells”. Occultism and witchcraft are woven throughout the entire sequence of stories. But, even here, there is much more. In an effort it desensitize children and to separate them from traditional Christian values, brutal stories are told, many of them in such a way as to pull the child into the story. For example, “first graders are asked whether they would rather be ‘crushed by a snake, swallowed by a fish, eaten by a crocodile, or sat on by a rhinoceros.'”

“Second graders see a drawing of a green creature whose long, sharp claws are gripping the head of a small child. In the accompanying poem, the child begs someone to tell him if the creature has been fed.” In other words, the child in the poem wants to know if the green creature has actually eaten the child whose head he was seen gripping. These stories are not fit for anyone of any age to read, much less for boys and girls in the First and Second grades. The values of the coming Satanic New World Order demand a population whose individuals have been desensitized to the point of participating in a future holocaust, and who would freely and gladly worship Satan. This is the objective.

But now let us look at Third Grade material. One reader entitled “Under the Sea” looks innocent enough, including an illustration of floating objects: a stove, refrigerator, teddy bear, and a slice of pie. Parents undoubtedly would never know that “the teacher’s manual instructs the teacher to ask the children to compose a spell. ‘Write and chant a magic spell’, the instructions read, ‘to make things in the room float'”. The final instructions are to make the children create a spell to make the room return to normal. Thus, the child is being taught that such activities of Satanism are normal and healthy, and are something in which they will one day normally participate. These children will never see this Satanism as perverted, unholy, and forbidden activities.

Fourth grade students are read a poem in which they are kidnapped and eaten by monsters.

I reached into my pocket and much to my surprise, something in there grabbed me and pulled me right inside.

I felt its clammy fingers all bony cold and thin; I tried to keep my head out, no use, it all went in.

And that was not the end of it, the pocket seemed so deep and dark and strange and scary I felt I had to weep….

And then my feet were pulled inside and I had disappeared.

Few things frighten a third-grade child more than being taken away from the security and love of Mom and Dad, and thrust into the clutches of a scary monster. Even without a story such as this, children go through a phase where they are afraid of the dark, and of the monsters they are sure await them there. Normally, loving parents can bring their child to the point where they finally realize these monsters in their minds will not harm them. However, permanent mental and spiritual damage can be done when respected authority figures, such as school textbooks and teachers, are deliberately teaching this type material.

But, there is even more. These fourth graders are also taught that monsters exist which can and do eat children. In one poem, entitled, “Welcome”, the end result is that a child is eaten.

…Worms wet and slimy will crawl up your back

and as you go further, it really gets black

you can’t see a thing and all you can hear

is a creaky old voice that says ‘come my dear

let’s see if you’re chunky, lets feel if you’re fat

I’m hungry today NO STOP DON’T GO BACK’

But if you are clever you’ll get out of there or

you’ll end in some stomach no one knows where

Fourth graders are also taught to create specific spells in an exercise called “Three Spells”. One of the spells it teaches is called “Zap”. “This spell creates a blast of lightning that shoots from the catter’s hand…It is effective against all living creatures that have no magical defenses.” No child who has ever been thrilled by Super-Heroes in comic books and on cartoons would want to be without this spell in his possession, because it would allow him to REALLY be as powerful and exciting as his favorite super-hero. This illustrates the principle of not allowing children to view seemingly harmless incidents of super-natural phenomenon. Many parents would not see the harm in allowing their children to watch heroes zap their opponents with a ray of power emanating from their fingers, even if they know this is occultic representation of real power available to the occultic adept. After all, the parent reasons, it is just TV, not reality.

But, the real danger is that the child has been conditioned to such representations and he subconsciously accepts the premise that such a thing may be possible. Thus, when they are confronted with it at some point in their life they are not shocked by the subject; they accept it readily. And rest assured Satan will choose the time place, and circumstance of this later-life confrontation.

Fifth graders are exposed to a poem in which pigs have acquired the taste for human flesh, and are contemplating attacking human children in their homes, in their own rooms. This, again, is classic occultic terror: threatening people with death that is unspeakably horrible, and a death which will come to them in that one place on earth where they should feel safe and secure — their own rooms in their parent’s house.

Sixth graders read about an abandoned human baby, who is discovered by “three black-robed hags”.These hags argue about what they should do to this little baby. One hag proposes to eat the little baby, “A sweet morsel. A tender lamb. I know what I should do”.

At every age level, children are being exposed to Satanism in both classic form and in a manner designed to produce absolute terror. Children will be thus pulled away from any and all Christian roots and will be simultaneously prepared for citizenship in the New World Order.

Finally, we would like to share with you the Impressions story, “A Wart Snake In A Fig Tree”. This story is a type of the traditional “Twelve Days of Christmas” song. The major impact is delivered by the pictures above the poem, so we will describe them to you. We will also not go through all 12 days, choosing to highlight the key ones.

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

a wart snake in a fig tree.

The accompanying picture shows a very large, intimidating snake curled around a fig tree, with the head sticking out of the snow.

On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

three cobwebs…

The accompanying picture is truly frightening for an adult, not to mention a little child. The cobwebs are shown as having attached themselves to the legs and supports of a tall wooden kitchen chair. To the far right side of the chair, you can see the trousers and sneakers of a little boy with the feet dangling just above the floor. The little boy has obviously hung himself. A very frightening picture.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

six shadows lurking…

The accompanying picture shows a little boy at the extreme right side, crouching in fear. His trousers and sneakers look identical to the little boy pictured on the Third Day, who had hung himself. This boy is covering his eyes with his left hand. He is sitting on the floor beside a movie screen. behind which are an assortment of shadows, both human and non-human. He is very frightened.

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

seven ghouls a caroling

The accompanying picture shows seven frightening ghouls standing almost inside a door of a house that is obviously decorated with Christmas wreaths. I was not familiar with the true definition of a ghoul, so I consulted my Webster’s New World Dictionary. Ghoul is defined as “evil spirits that rob graves and feed on the flesh of the dead”. A wonderful picture to present to sixth graders.

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

nine nightmares galloping….

The accompanying picture shows nine black stallions prancing on top of a little boy’s body as he lays sleeping. When did our educators come to the place when they decided that it is all right to deliberately give our children nightmares, and still call it education?

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me eleven lizards boiling…

The accompanying picture is disturbing, indeed, as it shows eleven lizards in a soup pot, fighting for their lives in the boiling soup.

These instances which we have shared with you constitute child abuse. Our precious children, for whom Jesus Christ had a special affection, are being abused mentally, spiritually, and emotionally with both the Mass Media exploitation of violence and the occult, as exemplified by the comic book story, and by our evolving educational system. The Impressions educational series is not yet in our area; it was introduced in California two years ago and spread to several other Western and Midwestern states. So many parents, led by outraged Christians, protested that the curricula was temporarily pulled back. However, I checked with the Main Office of Waldenbook, and discovered that the curricula is still current and can be ordered. New World Order educators are simply waiting until they feel they can reintroduce Impressions without severe parental backlash.

What has restrained them thus far? Christian parents. I believe what we are seeing here is the curricula which will be quickly in place once the restraining power of the Holy Spirit is removed, with the Rapture of the Church.

That blessed event is close, indeed.
