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.
The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented. But, few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the Biblical eyes of God, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles of today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always try to do here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.
No one will understand the way in which the march toward the New World Order is daily progressing unless they thoroughly understand the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan. Even though we have covered this Plan repeatedly, we feel constrained to do so again today because President Clinton has taken actions since his inauguration that advance several offensive and anti-Christian changes on many fronts. But, his actions did not happen in a vacuum; he would never have been able to take these actions had it not been for the preparatory work of many people before him for many years, all of them acting under the concepts of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan.
Briefly stated, Satan has revealed to the leaders of the New World Order a plan by which the attitudes of an entire population could be shifted away from attitudes which were deeply held on any particular issue and move them to quite different attitudes.
The target has been Western Society, which was rooted in Judeo-Christian values and attitudes. Therefore, the aim since the late 1700's has been to systematically change people's attitudes on a wide variety of moral and social issues, moving the entire population from Judeo-Christian values to Satanic values. And one of the most insidious aspects of this plan is that it occurs very subtly over a long period of time, so that the majority of the target population never realize the dramatic change which is occurring in them and in their society.
Furthermore, the institutions within society which people instinctively trust are the very institutions which are secretly betraying that trust and working to effect the attitudinal change. The key institutions which are working in this regard are Mass Media, Public Schools, Governments at every level, and certain Christian churches. Thus, most individuals whose attitudes have been so dramatically changed simply do not even understand THAT they have been systematically manipulated, much less understand that there is anything wrong with their attitudes. Everything they believe seems so normal, especially since they have already been trained to believe that there is no absolute standard in any area of their life. This Plan works so subtly that, as one author stated, "They do not even realize the lights are out". (Chuck Colson, "The Coming Darkness")
The Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan works like this:
The key step in this attitudinal change plan is Step #4 which calls for a struggle to occur over the discussion of the previously shocking subject. This struggle is important simply and only because the sheer repetition it provides dulls people's sensibilities. Thus, in any particular debate the proponent of the old value system can brilliantly win the debate, even to the point of making the other side look stupid, but still wind up losing the larger war because the debate served the purpose of sheer repetition. This Plan is insidious and brilliant. It is an excellent example of how Satan works through those people who are serving his cause, for no human being could have conceived this process.
Once Step #4 has sufficiently dulled people's sensitivity toward the formerly objectionable subject, then someone will step into the debate and offer a compromise. Usually, this compromise is that the objectionable practice being proposed will be allowed only under certain circumstances, and will be carefully monitored and controlled. The Mass Media steps into the fray to portray such a compromise as being so "reasonable" and "courageous", and by portraying the opposition to this compromise proposal as being very "unreasonable", "short sighted", and "ignorant". People who have been arguing against this objectionable subject are thus persuaded to accept the compromise, thinking they have just prevented a greater disaster. And the people who are arguing for complete acceptance of the repugnant proposal will accept the compromise, even though they publicly profess "outrage" that they did not come close to winning the battle. However, they know that this compromise was precisely the victory they were seeking, for it opened the door to the anti-Christian behavior just a crack. Once the door has been unlocked and opened just a crack, it will take little effort some years later to systematically force the door all the way open.
The best example of this insidious process is the battle over abortion. The first compromise was to allow abortion only under certain narrowly defined and controlled circumstances, i.e., only if the conception had occurred by rape or incest or only if the mother's life was endangered.
At this point, the door was unlocked and forced open just a tiny crack.
Then, little by little, the door was fully opened, to the point where state legislatures all across America are today passing "Abortion Rights" laws which will allow abortion to occur for any reason. Some of these laws are so bold they allow abortion all the way to birth.
We proponents of Christian values must understand that any compromise under any circumstances is simply and only delayed defeat. Our enemy who is pushing for these changes fully understands this concept. What did Jesus say, that "...the children of this world are, in their generation, wiser than the children of light". (Luke 16:8) They understand human nature much better than do most Christians. They understand that human beings are creatures of progression, that once change is allowed, it becomes ever more pronounced in the life of a person or a nation. This is why God issued permanent rules of conduct that society is to follow from generation to generation. Our leaders have ill served us by allowing compromise with these unregenerate people on matters of morality. They know that, once a change of any type is allowed on a matter which has always been heretofore considered inviolable, further change will occur with little or no effort or trouble.
This Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan is so effective it has been utilized in many, many different areas of American society to erode Judeo-Christian values, replacing them with Satanic values. In the 1800's, this Plan was effectively utilized in Europe to change people's value systems, but America's society was too immersed in Christianity, too many of its citizens were born again, for this process to make much inroad. However, during this century, much progress was made in preparing America to be changed. For example, Foundation monies, such as from Carnegie and Ford Foundations, were used to systematically buy major newspapers and publishing houses so that when the time was right, Mass Media would be ready to be used to aid the overt application of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan. Similarly, proponents of the New World Order systematically infiltrated American colleges and universities with anti-Christian values, so that the men and women graduating from these institutions would be imbued with the desired attitudes. The Reverend Bob Jones saw this occurring at the beginning of this century, and was so moved by the spectacle of men and women from Christian families losing their faith during their college years, that he determined to establish a Christian college which would deliver the education without anti-Christian indoctrination. Bob Jones University has delivered on this vision, saving many thousands of souls in the process. However, there were too few universities like Bob Jones to prevent American society from systematically changing the value systems of the average person.
Since World War II, this Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan has been mightily used to change the attitudes of the entire American society. We want to examine the many areas of our society in which doors that have been unlocked and opened somewhat are now being kicked all the way open, thus fully overturning America's former Christian values system. And President Clinton is the leader who is forcefully kicking these doors open. On the third day of his new Administration, President Clinton issued five executive orders, the content of which clearly showed that he intends to pursue an extremely radical "social change" agenda. We will examine each of these executive orders in a moment, but we want to first point out that President Clinton issued these orders on the THIRD day of his Administration. Why the third day, rather than the second or the fourth or any other day? Does the number three have any special significance? Indeed, it does, to an occultist, which Clinton truly is. The number three is the Pagan Holy number for Trinity, the symbol of all that is good, intelligent, and the number which "possesses authority in whatever pertains to Astronomy, and the nature and knowledge of the heavenly bodies, connects and leads them into effects". (W. Wynn Westcott, "The Occult Power of Numbers", page 41). In other words, the number three is a powerful number in Astrology. No occultist will undertake any major action unless the Astrological timing is correct. And why did President Clinton issue FIVE executive orders? The number five is important to an occultist because is considered to be representative of "spiritual light". Occultists even believe that the number five possesses inherent power, capable of keeping out evil spirits. Therefore, when President Clinton issued five executive orders on the third day of his Presidency, he was combining two powerful occultic numbers.
Since the executive orders represent Clinton's vision as to the way in which America should be socially changed, and the number three is the holy number of Pagan deity, we could literally say that Clinton was calling forth his plan for social change on a day in which the maximum occultic power could be exerted on behalf of these changes. They would literally believe that the number five is being multiplied by the number three, which is the maximum occultic multiplier possible. This is how an occultic thinks, and such thinking has great power when it is exercised by a major political leader. Many historic events have occurred on days in which the numbers were properly aligned. We will do just such a study one day, just to show you how the occultic leader will wait to undertake a major step until the numbers are properly aligned. But, for our purposes today, it is sufficient to know that President Clinton issued five "Agents of Social Change" via Executive Order on the Third day of his Presidency.
Let us examine these issues by category. President Clinton is kicking doors fully open that have previously been opened just a crack in the following two areas:
Four of the five orders affected abortion. It is most significant that Clinton's actions occurred on January 23, one day after the 20th anniversary of the infamous Supreme Court decision of Roe Vs Wade, which made a woman's "right" to an abortion upon demand the law of the land. On this day thousands of profile marchers were in Washington, D.C., to protest against abortion. Clinton's actions were a calculated slap in the face.
2. Homosexuality being accepted as a valid lifestyle, on a par with God's ordained heterosexuality. When we say this, we are completely implying that the major result of this acceptance is that society will be teaching its children at every level of education that homosexuality is a valid and acceptable life-style.
Let us now examine each of these five Executive Orders.
1. Clinton ordered that the tiny bodies of aborted babies could now be used in "Fetal Tissue Research" by medical laboratories. The medical community has been actively pressuring the President for years now to allow this type research, because the bodies of unborn babies are rich in certain chemicals which have been shown effective in treating certain types of adult diseases such as Alzheimers. Doctors have transplanted body tissue from the aborted baby into the area in the adult body which is affected by the disease. Immediately, the transplanted tissue begins to function in such a way as to alleviate the symptoms of the disease.
Opponents of this practice have longed argued against such a practice, because they recognize human nature. As soon as society places an economic value upon a product, the usage of that product dramatically surges upward. Since we are talking about killing unborn human beings, this means that, as soon as an economic value is placed upon the unborn baby, many more babies will be murdered simply so their body parts can be utilized. So far, all activity in this area has been confined to using the tissue and body parts of babies which have been aborted by mothers who do not want their babies. However, medical authorities have understood that this supply of baby parts and tissue will quickly prove inadequate to meet the demand of a medical industry devoted to the maximum exploitation of this field. After all, there are literally millions of adults who are afflicted with a myriad of diseases which can be cured with baby tissue. Do not be surprised to see a cottage industry spring up in which women will be deliberately impregnated so they can carry their baby for a certain, predetermined time, so they can then be aborted. Their babies' bodies will then be used for tissue, which will then be commercially marketed and sold. If you think this scenario is far-fetched, think again. Remember the September, 1987, article of Omni Magazine, in which the subject of deliberately killing people for their body parts was discussed. The conclusion of the author was that an economic industry would soon spring up to maximize the profits inherent in providing body parts. Such an industry, this author maintained, would be so profitable that it would be financed by Wall Street. Remember also that the leaders of the New Age Movement have always considered themselves to be the "Neo-Cannibals", again to quote this Omni Magazine article. And make no mistake about it: this practice of murdering human beings so their body parts can be utilized is the key meaning of the word, "cannibal". Have any of you ever heard the phrase, "cannibalizing a car for its parts"? President Clinton's Executive Order allowing baby tissue to be utilized in medical research literally kicks a door wide open, allowing full exploitation of a repugnant practice which had heretofore been allowed only under certain circumstances and with many restrictions. But, it was only a few short years ago that this practice was absolutely forbidden.
2. The second of Clinton's executive orders lifted the restriction on abortion counseling in federally funded clinics. Now, medical personnel in federally funded clinics may encourage women to have an abortion. In fact, this may be the only option which is presented to the woman. Thus, your tax dollars again are being used in such a way as to take life. This action will only result in many more babies being killed. Do you see the progression of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan at work here? Prior to the Roe Vs Wade Supreme Court decision, the door against abortion had been unlocked and opened just a crack by the decisions of most of the state legislatures to allow abortion only under certain restrictive situations, i.e., only if the life of the mother was threatened or if the conception had occurred as a result of rape or incest. Roe Vs Wade opened the door still further, but now Clinton has kicked it wide open.
3. In Executive Order three, Clinton began the process of importing the abortion pill, RU-486. This pill is commonly known as the "morning after pill", because when it is taken early in the pregnancy, it does not allow the tiny baby to attach itself to the mother's uterine wall, thus killing the baby. This pro-abortion action follows the same general steps to full acceptance that the general campaign for abortion has taken; however, the steps that the French manufacturing company has taken since it created the drug is also along the lines of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan. The French manufacturer knew this would be a very controversial drug, so it set up very strict guidelines for the usage of this drug. At first, only medical doctors, acting according to very restrictive guidelines, could prescribe RU-486. Little by little, those restrictive guidelines have been relaxed, until we have nearly reached the desired point, where the drug can be distributed freely within the medical and pharmaceutical industry. And the results will be deadly for countless millions more babies. Only God will know the number of babies killed with RU-486.
Interestingly, the imminent release of RU-486 within the United States has already created an interesting, and frightening, related scenario. That doctor of death, Jack Kevorkian, has written a letter to the doctors of abortion clinics across America, pointing out that their clinic could be put out of business by RU-486. Therefore, Kevorkian has proposed they turn their clinics into adult Euthanasia clinics. Thus, the action of fully kicking the Abortion door wide open is having the effect of kicking the door wide open in the area of adult killing, more commonly known as Euthanasia. America, and the rest of the world, has just taken another huge step toward the final Biblically predicted holocaust, because Hitler's Holocaust could not have been possible had it not been for the conditioning effect upon the German population of the euthanasia of devalued German citizens for the two decades prior to Hitler.
4. The fourth executive order provided federal funds to military hospitals overseas for abortions.
All these pro-abortion executive orders will simply result in millions more babies killed annually in the United States. The door against this abomination was unlocked several decades ago, and is just now being savagely kicked all the way open. And the Biblical ramifications are severe enough to sober any person who reads their Bible literally. God has much to say about protecting the innocent life. In Exodus 23:7, God commanded Israel, "...the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked."
In 2 Kings 21:16, God pronounces one of the reasons He was bringing physical judgment upon Manasseh, King of Israel. After recounting Manasseh's sin of worshipping occultic idols, God pronounced, "Moreover, Mannasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another." If God was angry because Mannasseh had shed innocent blood to the point of filling Jerusalem from one end to another, will He not similarly judge America? Our murder through abortion has already killed over 30 million innocent babies, and these actions taken by President Clinton will only dramatically increase this slaughter. If God does not consider the killing of 30 million babies to be enough to fill America with the blood of innocents from one end to the other, this new toll will most certainly have that result.
5. President Clinton's final executive order was to remove the military ban on homosexuals and lesbians. Clinton proposed that homosexuals and lesbians be allowed to serve in any branch of the military despite the fact that they were openly gay. Thus, the societal door prohibiting homosexuals and lesbians from openly participating in society is being kicked all the way open. For at least two decades, gays have been gradually gaining more and more acceptance both socially and legally. We have reached the point where some public school curricula is teaching that homosexuality and lesbianism is just as valid as heterosexuality, thus inducing many impressionable children to choose that sexual orientation. This sin is at least as great as the sin of killing innocent people, and maybe greater. Jesus specifically addressed this issue in Matthew 18:6-7, when He said "But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me (or cause one of these little ones to stumble) it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he drowned in the depths of the sea." This is capital punishment anyone, either an individual or a nation, for causing little children to lose faith in Jesus Christ. Certainly, teaching little children to accept homosexuality as normal and good fits this warning perfectly. Americans by the tens of millions are lining up for God's judgment, much like those deceived people of Jim Jones' cult as they lined up for the poisoned Kool Aid. Make no mistake or spiritual miscalculation -- God's judgment upon America is coming and is coming soon.
Millions of unsaved people, from the highest in rank to the lowest, will be unbelievably distressed on the day of the White Throne Judgment to realize that God never changes, either His mind or His commandments. What He decreed 5,000 years ago, He expects today. God has overthrown kings and kingdoms repeatedly throughout history because they refused to follow His commands, and He will do so with America. God tried to warn nations for all time in Jeremiah 12:17, "But if they (that is, any nation) will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the Lord." These strong words speak of physical judgment that utterly destroys the nation which refuses to obey God's commands. We can only shudder when we read Jesus' prophecy in Revelation 18, as He describes the complete destruction of an economic giant existing in the Last Days of Time, a nation we have repeatedly asserted is quite probably the United States of America. In verse 2, the angel pronouncing this nation's doom says, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird...For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 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."
Every person on earth should immediately shudder to the point of personal terror. When Omnipotent God pronounces such a physical judgment upon a nation, wise men and women will immediately fall down before Him with prayers of forgiveness and mercy. However, the foolish men and women of today, who are leading us mightily into the Satanic New World Order, will not so react. They will react with scorn and disbelief, because they have already fulfilled God's requirements for a fool; they have already said in their heart, "There is no God". (Psalm 53:1)
A quick look back at that economic Babylon of Revelation 18 reveals very special judgment in store for her. In verse 8 and 17, we see that this nation will be destroyed by fire, totally burned up with fire, in one hour of one day. No nation in history has ever been destroyed in one hour of one day. This most credibly might be possible today with nuclear weapons. Indeed, the destruction of this nation at this point might be the fulfillment of the Second Horse of War of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:3-4).
Jesus has instructed those of us who call upon His Name as Lord and Savior to live a certain type of life during this Time of the End of the Age. In Revelation 18, as He is preparing to physically destroy Economic Babylon for the multitude of her sins, Jesus calls to His believers in that society, "Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues". We are to immediately begin to live our lives in obedience to God's commandments, refusing to participate in the sins of our society. We are to live separate and pure from the unsaved world. Our lives are truly to be so different from those around us that they immediately notice that difference. Too many Christians today are winking at sin in their lives, unwilling to get tough with themselves and to admit that what they are doing is sin. Perhaps the problem is watching TV that portrays sin or allowing our children to watch it. Perhaps it is knowingly pursuing goals that we know are too materialistic or which require us to sin in order to achieve them.
Whatever the sin is that is keeping us from God, we must now leave that sin and begin obeying God. To not do so means that, because we were partaking in the sins of the society, we will also share in her plagues. The time is now to "come out from her, My people", and be holy before the Lord.
