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.
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:
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.
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:
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:
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.
