FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, YOU WILL BE ON
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:
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.
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:
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 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.
