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.
From the very beginning of today's broadcast, we want to warn all parents that you need to make sure that no young and impressionable children are listening. The material we will present today is not suitable for the ears and minds of young children. We are committed to bringing you the news and events of the day in such a way that you can see how we are being led into the New World Order and how very close this world is to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. We have educated you as to the complicated Plan Satan has devised to change the hearts and minds of the population of the world enough so that he could introduce his kingdom. We challenge you every program that, once you understand this Satanic Plan, you will never look at the news the same way again. Our hope and prayers is that you will be able to under-stand the day of evil in which we live and prepare yourself and your loved ones for the spiritual battle raging around us. Therefore, we have spared no effort to bring you the details of the way in which America is moving into the value system of Satanism. Our mail indicates that you have been greatly helped by this ministry, and for that we thank God with all our hearts.
However, this effort has not been without cost to us personally, because we have had to continually delve into the most disgusting and lurid material. We have had to research news that in normal times we would have simply passed by. At times, the cost to our Christian minds and sensibilities has seemed too heavy a load to bear, and we have been tempted to not report fully the depth of the horror we have become. We empathize with Christian author, Amy Carmichael, in her book, "Gold Cord", as she laments,
"Thou shalt have words,
But at this cost, that thou must first be burned,
Burned by red embers from a secret fire,
Scorched by fierce heats and withering winds that sweep
Through all thy being, carrying thee afar
From old delights. Doth not the ardent fire
Consume the mountain's heart before the flow
Of fervent lava...?"
Certainly, our hearts have burned, as we know yours has, with the constant bombardment from every angle possible of the anti-Christian nature of our present society. Our hearts have burned within us, like volcanic lava pouring through our inner being. Perhaps this is the way Lot felt as he lived in Sodom, because the Scripture records, in 2 Peter 2:8, that God "delivered just Lot, vexed [or sorely distressed] with the filthy conversation [lascivious life] of the wicked: for that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds."
Does this not describe Christians living in America today? Does not our soul burn within us, as we fully under-stand the immense evil which overwhelms our society daily? Our minds are boggled daily as we try to live Godly lives amidst this moral sewage, and as we try to protect our children from it. Again, we turn to the comforting words of Amy Carmichael, as she records the way in which God comforted her in her time of deepest need. "At last a day came when the burden grew too heavy for me; and then it was as though the tamarind trees about the house were not tamarind, but olive, and under one of those trees our Lord Jesus knelt, and He knelt alone. And I knew that this was His burden, not mine. It was He who was asking me to share it with Him, not I who was asking Him to share it with me. After that there was only one thing to do...who could have done anything but go into the garden and kneel down beside Him under the olive trees?"
Indeed, this burden belongs to Jesus Christ, and He bids us to kneel daily and give it up to Him. This is the only way in which this intense spiritual battle can be won. Once we give this burden to Jesus Christ, we may rejoice with the song-writer,
"O love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.
O joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain
That morn shall tearless be."
We have read the last chapter of world history, as revealed by Jesus Christ in the book of Revelation, and we know that God ultimately wins the battle. In this time in world history, however, our assigned role is to be loyal and dependable soldiers in God's army, waging daily battle against the Satanic foe arrayed in ever increasing strength against us. God says to us as he said to Ezekiel shortly before His physical judgment fell upon Israel, "I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel...hear the warning from my mouth and give them warning from me." (Ezekiel 3:17-21). God goes on to say that, if Ezekiel does not warn the righteous to stay righteous and the wicked to turn from his way, God will require their blood at judgment to be laid also at Ezekiel's account. But, if he does warn them, and they ignore his warnings, God will hold Ezekiel blameless at the time of judgment.
Today, we are warning fellow Christians and the unsaved alike of the immense evil which is permeating our society. Every week seems to bring more evil and more deception. With this as background, we report the most intense evil we have ever encountered, and we certainly hope you have removed any small children from hearing our story.
God warned all men for all time, in Proverbs 8:36 that a rejection of Him and His commandments would ultimately produce physical death. God warned, "...all they that hate Me love death." The greatest single trend in America today is an obvious love of death. We see this love of death in the Rock culture so treasured by our current generation of young people. We see this love of death in current TV and movie listings. We see this love of death in the wave of suicides and murders filling our land today. And, finally, we see this love of death encompassing our most innocent of children, as abortion is killing 1.6 million babies every year.
However, this number of babies killed is going to immediately skyrocket because of the convergence of two factors:
However, the horror does not end there. We would also see private enterprise entering the picture, setting up companies devoted to the growing of babies only for the purpose of killing them at the appropriate time so as to maximize their potential in the marketplace. Of course, such a scenario was consistently denied by the advocates of Fetal Tissue Research, even at the time that one of their major magazines, Omni Magazine, was advocating just such a position. In the September, 1987, issue, the lead story was entitled, "Redefining Death". The story centered around the issue of organ donation. The article reported that death needed to be redefined so that more and more people could be "harvested" for their internal organs. This article concluded that, very soon, Wall Street would recognize the enormous profits that could be made in trafficking in death, and would begin to pour enormous sums of money into such enterprises. America, this article explains, would create an industry devoted entirely to profiting from human death. Remember, this shocking article was written in 1987.
With this background, let us now examine a more recent article, not in a New Age magazine such as Omni, but in the mainline magazine, Newsweek, February 22, 1993. The lead article is entitled, "Cures From The Womb". Toward the bottom of the front cover is a picture of a 6-week-old baby floating inside the protective bubble within the mother's womb. Around this picture are these words, "Fetal-Tissue research offers new hope for treating diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other diseases. But the ethics debate continues." Indeed, the ethics debate does continue, for this seemingly "miraculous" new hope for treating these above-mentioned diseases involves taking the tissue of aborted babies and directly inserting it into the diseased portion of the adult body. Let us allow the article to speak for itself.
"The abortion took only seven minutes...then the gurgle of the suction as it carried the embryo and placenta down a tube snaking through a hole in the wall. On the other side a nurse carrying a small plastic dish collected the remains of a six-week embryo, all two ounces worth. But this one wasn't going to the incinerator...Six hours later, the tissue was rushed upstairs to the hospital operating theater where surgeons drilled a hole the size of a thimble into the skull of a Parkinson's patient. The surgeon pulled the fetal cells into a tiny needle and, using an MRI scan to pinpoint the area crippled by the incurable disease, shot them directly into the brain of the awake and alert patient."
The article went on to describe the "positive" effects that the tissue from aborted fetuses" Notice that the baby being killed and dismembered was never called a baby, just an "embryo" or a "fetus". These words do not carry a human connotation, so they remove normal guilt over killing. Hitler would be proud, for he used this same technique to prepare the German population for his planned genocide. However, we will call them what they are -- babies. Babies' tissue is uniquely high in certain chemicals, such as dopamine, which help patients suffering from incurable illnesses such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, certain forms of diabetes, and blood diseases. This high concentration of these chemicals dissipates soon after birth, thus placing an even higher premium on pre-born babies.
However, doctors have discovered an equally important characteristic about pre-born baby tissue. "...fetal cells are perfect for a host of scientific and medical uses. The cells grow quickly and divide rapidly, and so are more likely to insinuate themselves into a patient's existing tissue. They lack the surface markers that a recipient's immune system recognizes as foreign, and so are unlikely to be rejected. Perhaps most important, they are 'plastic': a very young fetal cell has the potential to be a kidney, a liver cell, or just about anything else...under the right circumstances...science might one day grow a full, function-ing liver from a few fetal cells." Such a development would alleviate the shortage of organs which are suitable for donation to a dying patient. Many patients die because doctors cannot find a suitable organ donor, thus driving the cost of suitable organs right through the roof. Livers in excellent condition command $10,000 apiece. Therefore, the promise of someday being able to grow young babies' tissue into a liver or a kidney by understanding the genetic switching mechanism offers some enterprising entrepreneur the possibility of enormous profit.
Remember the assertion by the Omni Magazine reporter, that someday, Wall Street would recognize the enormous profit in the business of dying and would pour untold millions of dollars into such businesses? You have just seen a very good example of how scientific advances have placed a very high economic value on the tissue of young, pre-born babies. Medical researchers could easily artificially inseminate female eggs with male sperm to create a tiny baby, allowing the baby to develop until precisely the right age that would be perfect for their medical purposes. Then, the medical researchers would "harvest" their human crops, selling them to the highest bidder. In fact, this is already being done on a small scale. On page 51 of this Newsweek Magazine, the author describes how one medical researcher from San Diego is "studying fetal neural cells... By growing fetal cells to identify what makes them differentiate and migrate, Gage and others have identified brain chemicals that affect neural survival and growth." Did you catch that phrase, "By growing fetal cells.."? How does a medical researcher "grow" fetal cells? They artificially join egg and sperm to produce a tiny baby and then they kill it at just the right time for their research purposes. At this point, your Christian sensibilities are screaming in protest that pre-born babies could be treated like cattle or like a plant. After all, we know that each of these babies is a precious soul, created in the image of God. Further, we know that God will not tolerate such slaughter of the unborn innocent without soon bringing physical judgment upon the nation carrying out such practices. You are absolutely correct, but there is more horror, more blood on our hands.
Medical researchers have also discovered that the brain and neurological cells from the spinal cord area of older pre-born babies have proven their worth in treating diseases in adults which have otherwise been incurable. For example, this Newsweek article reports that "In experimental surgery, studies reported that 10 out of 13 patients improved when brain cells from...fetuses were implanted in the affected part of the brain." Obviously, we are talking about a more advanced pre-born baby here, one that is developed enough to have a brain. When the brains of aborted babies were placed directly into the diseased brain of the adult Parkinson's patient, they immediately produced dramatic improvement in the adult. Researchers have discovered that the cells of babies' brain-stem tissue seem to gravitate automatically to the area of the adult's diseased brain where the disease is most prevalent. Then, once these implanted brain-stem tissues get to the right place in the adult brain, they begin to pump out the needed dopamine which will cure the disease. Further, these baby tissues seem to permanently pump out the dopamine.
This is good news, indeed, for the medical community, for it means that they will have merchandise to sell to the entire adult population which is suffering from various diseases incurable any other way. Companies can immediately begin to form which will provide an unlimited supply of such material. After all, babies are an unlimited renewable resource, much like corn or wheat. If they can be grown in factories, this nation and the entire world would have an unlimited supply of this precious human tissue.
The only problem with this scenario is that such practice has been illegal, because of the Presidential ban against using pre-born baby tissue for such purposes. But, President Clinton has ridden to the rescue, much like the White Knight rescuing the good maiden on his valiant white stallion. By lifting President Reagan's ban on using baby tissue for medical research, the medical community is now free to pursue unlimited research into this field. Of course, this would require much more baby tissue than is now available from voluntary abortion. And, remember, medical research needs the baby tissue from babies all along the line of age, from the First Trimester to the Final Trimester. There is no problem getting the tissue from the First Trimester, because such babies could be artificially inseminated and kept alive in factory conditions until they are 6-12 weeks old and then aborted, or "harvested" as the Omni Magazine article called it.
But, how does the medical establishment get the material it needs from babies in the final trimester? Laws in many states declare that abortion in this final trimester is illegal, and legally punishable. Could this be the reason so many states, including Massachusetts and Rhode Island, are pursuing legislation which would allow abortions right up to the point of birth? Of course, it is. Big money beckons to the states which allow the killing of babies right up to the point of birth. Many states allow this slaughter now, and many more are in the process of passing the laws which would allow it. Therefore, doctors in this field can see the handwriting on the wall, where they would be allowed to legally kill the baby right up to the moment of birth. If this condition in most or all of the states is this close to occurring, then it makes sense that training must begin that would teach doctors to abort the baby in such a way as to maximize the potential of the babies' tissues. And, remember, the most prized tissue is the brain and spinal cord tissues.
The Massachusetts Citizens For Life (MCFL) has just mailed a letter to its supporters which reports the latest abortion procedure. This procedure, called the "D & X Abortion Procedure", was described at a "Risk Management Seminar" on September 13, 1992, sponsored by the National Abortion Federation, which MCFL describes as "the trade association of the largest abortion facilities in the United States. Now, remember, abortion clinics are facing tremendous loss of income because of the new RU-486 pill, so they are looking for new sources of income. What better way to secure their large profits than by developing a new procedure which would supply the newly found need for the brain and spinal-cord tissue of pre-born babies in the final trimester?
This article from MCFL shows the illustrations which were used in the September 13, 1992, seminar described above. This is their material. The illustrations show a mother laying on her back, with a cut-away showing her womb and the baby within. The descriptions shown below were written by the editors of MCFL.
But, the final outrage is visible from the last illustration, which shows the abortionist sucking the baby's brains out. The head of the baby is still inside the womb, just barely. Thus, abortionists are being trained how they may perform this abomination while still staying within the boundaries of the new legislation being passed by state legislators!@!@!@!@!@!
I am sure your stomach is turning inside out at this point, as every Christian value inside you is screaming at this incredible outrage. American society is entering the final stage where its hatred for God is creating a love for death. Since the German Holocaust, many authors have stated that the worth of any society may be gauged by how it protects the lives of its most innocent and helpless citizens. These authors felt this was one of the most important lessons which the Nazi Holocaust taught Western society. Obviously, these lessons have been swept away by this resurgence of Nazi/Hitlerian values. When we describe this medical research on the bodies of pre-born babies, can you not see Hitler's ghastly research on the bodies of their doomed Jewish captors? The parallel between this medical abomination of World War II and today's medical research is strong and unmistakable. Yet, no one is crying out for Justice, for a Nuremburg-style War Crimes Tribunal.
But, God is watching and waiting for the precise moment when His Justice will rain down upon the perpetrators of this horror. We are reminded of Jesus' words in Revelation 18 as He describes the physical destruction of an Economic Babylon, which we fully believe may be the United States. In describing this incredibly evil economic nation, Jesus laments in verse 2 that she "is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit..." Certainly, no Christian can any longer argue that this description does not fit America today. Then, in verse 3, Jesus describes her economic sins, "For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication...and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies..." We have studied the many instances in which America has exported her evil culture and values to the other nations of the world, encouraging them to sin even more greatly. But, this new example of how America is corrupting the rest of the world in leading the research and development of medical uses for the tissue of pre-born babies for economic gain brings this Scripture to a greater meaning. How many babies will be deliberately conceived only to be destroyed for economic profit before God intervenes in a mighty way to bring His Judgment down on America?
Only God knows the answer, but in the very next verse, verse 4, Jesus calls for the Christian to come out of this evil system, to live holy and purified lives. Then, in verse 5, Jesus states that the sins of this Economic Babylon are so great that "her sins have reached into heaven". This is an incredible statement of quantification. Can you see the bodies of these precious babies, stacked like corkwood, reaching into Heaven? Verse 5 concludes by saying that "God hath remembered her iniquities."
God's judgment is very close unless Americans turn back to God. This brings us to the question as to what we can possibly do to turn back the tide. There are several critically important actions all Christians in this country need to take:
If America continues upon this Satanic path, we will most certainly incur God's physical judgment. We cannot close without tying all this abominable murder of the pre-born into the New World Order. We have repeatedly stated that one of their major goals is to reduce the population of the world by two-thirds by the year 2,000 A.D., which means that 4 billion people must die. One of the major avenues to accomplish this goal is to encourage homosexuality and contraception, because it prevents conception and birth. Another major avenue to accomplish this goal is to increase the death rate. Thus, abortion is specifically mentioned in their writings as being critical. Satan knows that, in our Capitalist economy, the best way in which to dramatically increase the death rate is to kill the helpless unborn in such a way that provides adult businessmen and doctors with enormous profits. If you remain skeptical about this tie to the New World Order, as I have just described, we urge you to get a copy of this Newsweek article of February 22. We have already partially described the picture on page 47, opposite the beginning of the article, "Cures From The Womb". Above the adult's face and below the baby's legs is the Satanic symbol which is found on every One-dollar bill, the unfinished pyramid with the All-Seeing Eye above. And, of course, this symbol has the Latin words, "Novus Ordo Seclorum" written below, translated New World Order. The authors of this Newsweek article are clearly aware of the tie-in of this Fetal Tissue Research into the New World Order, and they are rubbing our noses in it.
Congratulations, Satan. You have won a temporary victory. May God deliver us from this ultimate evil!!
