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 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.
Throughout the Old and New Testaments concerning the signs of the end of the age, God reveals much about the kingdom of Anti-Christ. For example, in Daniel, chapters 2 and 7-9, we see that this kingdom would be global. In other words, the world would be ruled by one dictator, whose Biblical title is Anti-Christ. These prophecies in Daniel deal almost exclusively with the political nature and power of this evil kingdom. However, in Revelation 13, God reveals that the kingdom of Anti-Christ will be threefold in nature. It will wield unlimited power and authority in each of these three areas. These areas are:
Thus, the kingdom of Anti-Christ will wield absolute global power in three separate and distinct areas: Political Spiritual, and Economic. If the planned New World Order is the kingdom of Anti-Christ, we should be able to see global progress in all three of these areas simultaneously. We can and this program will demonstrate how very close we are to the point where absolute dictatorial power can be wielded in each of these three areas.
We will begin with the area of political power. In this area, we see that, although Anti-Christ will receive absolute political power, he wields this power through the collective authority of the leaders of the 10 Super Nations of the world. Revelation 17:12-13, tells us that these 10 political kings will create the situation where they assume all political authority in the world, and that they will immediately turn this newly-created power over to Anti-Christ. This Scripture implies that these 10 kings will gain their power over the world through some type of super global government. This type of vehicle would be absolutely necessary to give them the power over all the peoples of the world. Thus, when Anti-Christ arises, he will assume the leadership of this super global government, with all the privileges and powers inherent in such government.
What the Scriptures implies, the writings of many New Age leaders spell out in great detail. These leaders have already planned, and are systematically implementing, the 10 Super Nation reorganization, under the authority of the United Nations. And, their plan also calls for The Christ, Maitreya, to arise at the right time in world history and take control over the U.N.
Common sense tells us, also, that the only way in which the United Nations could gradually assume all political power is for the leaders of the world generally, but the 10 final leaders specifically, to relinquish their national sovereignty to the United Nations. Again, New World Order writings are quite bold in declaring that national sovereignty is dangerous and outmoded, and must be completely eliminated. If we are in the end of this Plan, we must be able to see instances in our daily newspapers of individual leaders voluntarily surrendering their national sovereignty to the United Nations. In other words, we should be seeing instances where a leader will not act unless he receives the approval of the United Nations. Since the Tower of Babel, almost 5,000 years ago, national leaders have always acted on their own initiative, not worrying about whether their actions would be approved or disapproved by a global government.
Consider the political news of today:
NEWS BRIEF: The Providence Journal Bulletin, Sunday, August 8, 1993, "Air Strike Up To U.N.", page A3. This news article clearly shows the voluntary loss of national sovereignty on the part of the United States and its NATO allies to the United Nations. "U.S. officials seeking support for proposed NATO air strikes against Sarajevo said yesterday that they were prepared to agree with the U.N. secretary-general that the first such attack would require his approval."
This is tremendous news!! And it is filled with all sorts of implications. First, the last time I checked, our government still operated under the authority of the original Constitution. This Constitution specifically gives the power to the American people to elect leaders and then hold them responsible for their actions. The Constitution further gives the President the authority over the Armed Forces and the Congress the authority to declare war. Did the American people elect the U.N. Secretary General, Boutros-Ghali? Of course, not. Therefore, when President Clinton and his political advisors are acting unconstitutionally when they declare that they cannot act militarily in this situation until and unless they receive the approval of the U.N. Secretary General.
And, yes, President George Bush similarly acted unconstitutionally when he declared that he could not go to war until he received the backing of our allies, working through the United Nations. We know that the reason the Gulf War was fought was to advance the power and authority of the United Nations so it could further advance the New World Order. At least, President Bush was forthright in repeatedly telling us this was the case. And, the actions taken against a surviving Iraq demonstrate that the plan was for Iraq to survive so the U.N. could demonstrate its ability and authority over the wishes of a sovereign state.
This article makes it quite clear that European leaders also feel that they cannot act alone, or even in concert with their European allies, without the consent of the U.N. We should rightly be concerned, because we learned several weeks ago that the United Nations was established with the express purpose of bringing every nation under its dictatorial authority, under the threat of nuclear annihilation. It would probably be helpful if we reviewed the original purpose of the United Nations. Our source is that New World Order road map, "The Externalisation of the Hierarchy", by Alice Bailey, written by the supernatural demon, Master D.K.
"The leaders of the United Nations and of their armies...are able to work -- consciously or unconsciously -- under the inspiration of the Hierarchy... On account of this...Christ became automatically the Leader of these Forces."
Who is this "Christ" who has become the Leader of the Forces of the United Nations? He is none other than The Christ, the Biblical Anti-Christ. Master D.K. continues by explaining the purpose of the United Nations. The purpose of the United Nations was to "establish peace". Calling the United Nations the "saving force", Master D.K. then says, "This 'saving force' is the energy which science has released into the world for the destruction...of those who continue...to defy the Forces of Light working through the United Nations." Did you understand the importance of this last sentence? Master D.K. has just stated that the purpose of the United Nations is to "destroy" any nation which will continue to defy its will and its plan. Thus, the peace of which they speak so eloquently is really the peace of the grave for anyone who will refuse to abide by its values and its goals.
But, then, Master D.K. reveals on page 548 precisely how "The Lord Of This World" will destroy these nations and/or groups of people who "continue to defy" the United Nations. He states, "The atomic bomb...belongs to the United Nations for use...when aggressive action on the part of any nation rears its ugly head." Wow!! The United Nations plans to wage nuclear war against any nation which refuses to accede to the plans of Anti-Christ. Thus, you can easily see how the prophecy of Revelation 6:2-3, of the Red Horse of War, will be fulfilled. Christian, do not be deceived, the hour of the destruction of the United States in nuclear warfare draws closer with every step our leaders are taking which build up the power and authority of the United Nations, and which simultaneously weaken our own. This is the direction in which President Clinton is leading and the goal for which he is seeking. But, he is merely continuing the leadership in this vein of President Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, Eisenhower, Truman, and Franklin Roosevelt. The Bible states that the results of sin are usually the result of a process, the end of which is death. Such will be the result of the efforts of all these past presidents, once the New World Order for which they had so mightily labored is finally in place.
Now, let us consider the rapidly changing global Economic system. This economic system will become global before Anti-Christ arises and its cashless feature will have become reality before he chooses to use it to his spiritual advantage. But, again, the planned result of the New World Order Economic System is the same as for the Political System -- individual sovereign nations are targeted for elimination. This new economic system will not allow the individual nations to take action based solely on what the best course might be for that individual nation. This goal has been even more difficult to achieve than the political goal. Peoples of every nation are very jealous of their ability to act in accordance with their economic needs, simply because they instinctively realize that their very physical survival depends upon their economy functioning well enough to feed, clothe, and house them. Thus it is that they are very jealous of their economy and their unique currency. Resistance to eliminating national currencies and national sovereignty to control their own currency has proven to be fierce.
However, victory seems to be in sight, as this NEWS BRIEF seems to indicate. The Providence Sunday Journal, August 8, 1993, "A New World Order Has Established Itself In Currency Trading", p. F15. "The battles between currency traders and central banks that overwhelmed the European Community's exchange rate system this week illustrated a new world order -- one in which billions of dollars sprint around the globe, and investors challenge governments...The market forced the government to make decisions they couldn't make..."
In other words, the advancing cashless electronic flow of money around the globe, which amounts to an estimated $1 trillion daily, can force supposedly sovereign governments to make decisions that they would otherwise not make. Again, this is tremendous news with equally tremendous implications. Who elected these traders to positions of authority, from which they could take actions that might force our duly elected governments into undesirable actions? Of course, the answer is, "No one elected these traders to do anything." Yet, they daily demonstrate their ability to force national sovereign governments into situations which might someday become untenable.
One of the most interesting aspect of this news article is the revelation that cashless financial transaction via computer electronic transfer is occurring daily at a huge level, $1 trillion to be exact. We are moving rapidly to a cashless society. Credit cards paved the way originally for the cashless economic system of buying and selling without cash money. Then, once we were properly conditioned to this new reality, Debit Cards were introduced. Debit cards differ from Credit Cards in that they automatically withdraw the amount of your purchase from your bank account. Of course, all these banking transactions operate on the same "666" principle of the UPC coding which we find on most of our retail products today.
The stage seemed set to eliminate cash and go to a credit card. Indeed, rumors have abounded for over a decade that the Federal Government was planning to introduce a new money. Dr. Frank Church, writing in his monthly newsletter, "Prophecy In The News", stated that his church treasurer made a tremendous discovery one Sunday morning. He was looking at the money in the church's collection plates one morning, and realized that much of the paper currency looked unusually old. As they began to look at the money, they realized that the most recent issue date was 1988, which is significant because it meant the U.S. Treasury had not made a new plate for five years. Usually, a new plate is created every year.
The stage seemed set for introduction of some new money into our economy. However, no one seemed to know precisely the form this new money would take. The mystery may be over. I received a letter from Former U.S. Congressman, Ron Paul, who lives in Houston, Texas. Congressman Paul was writing to warn of a new money which is ready to be introduced at any moment. Congressman Paul writes, "Next year, or next month, Bill Clinton's New Money could wipe you out...I'm scared...I uncovered the plans for the New Money when I was a U.S. Congressman and chairman of a currency subcommittee...I held it in my hands. The bills were tinted pink and blue and brown...with holograms, diffraction gratings, metal and plastic threads, bar codes, and chemical alarms. It was not the money of a free people, for it will allow the feds to keep track of American cash, and American citizens. These bills...can be computer imprinted and read, laying a paper trail hundreds of transactions long. These bills contain chemical alarms that will set off federal cash detectors at airports...To manufacture the New Money, the Fed's have built a colossal high-tech plant in Ft. Worth, Texas..."
This is shocking news, indeed. It appears that this new money is designed to serve as the final bridge between our traditional paper currency and the final cashless system which operates with some type of physical mark. This type of money would incorporate much of the same computer technology as would be required under the final physical mark system. Indeed, it would allow authorities to work out all problems with such a computer system before they implement the physical mark system.
The time seems very late, indeed. The global Economic System of Anti-Christ is taking shape in our daily news, and it seems to be forming along the precise lines prophesied in our Holy Bible. We should be encouraged as well as alerted. Jesus said we would know the approximate time of the end when we saw the many End Time prophecies occurring together. Now is that time.
Finally, we want to examine the progress toward the final global religion. Revelation 13:11, tells us clearly that the False Prophet, who aids Anti-Christ so much in his initial appearance, will look, talk, and act like a Christian. The Scripture says, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon." This False Prophet will appear to be a follower of the "Lamb of God Who taketh away the sins of the world" -- Jesus Christ. However, he will be totally false. On the inside, he will be possessed of Satan as is clearly indicated in the prophecy, "...he spake as a dragon". The dragon is clearly Satan. So, we should expect this False Prophet to be the supreme leader of a worldwide church which claims to be Christian. However, since God has consistently promised that the Holy Spirit will prevent those truly born-again believers from being deceived, we can expect that this False Prophet will fool only those who are not saved. The True Church will see this false leader and his church as being false long before he arises to support Anti-Christ.
The Sunday Boston Globe, August 8, 1993, reports on the imminent arrival of Pope John Paul II in the United States on August 12. In an article entitled, "John Paul, Geopolitician", page 69, the author, J. Bryan Hehir, focuses upon the Pope's global influence in this "post-Cold War" era. He says, "World politics clearly is passing through a time of profound and fundamental change...Both his stance on human rights and his support of international refugees and migrants lead John Paul II to limit the idea of state sovereignty. One of the characteristics of world politics today is the shifting status of sovereignty. The increasing interdependence of the globe, as well as the force of human rights claims, have eroded the meaning of sovereignty... [John Paul] argues that bonds of moral solidarity establish duties among peoples and nations despite sovereign boundaries."
Did you understand the import of this information? Pope John Paul II is throwing the full weight of the Roman Catholic Church behind the New World Order objective of surrendering national sovereignty to the United Nations. This support is weighty, indeed, because the Roman Catholic Pope commands respect, loyalty, and allegiance that cuts across national boundaries and races. Why, the Pope is the perfect person to spiritually lead the world into the New World Order. And this is precisely what he is doing.
But, his supporters would dramatically disagree. They would say that the Pope is simply leading as Jesus Christ would lead. The Pope is concerned with the salvation of mankind, about the poor, and about the injustices which plague every nation around the globe. While this assertion may be partially true, its falsity is enough to damn the entire endeavor.
First, the Roman Catholic Church has not preached the need for salvation through becoming Born Again by Grace. Rather, they preach the Pagan path toward salvation, through works, through the efforts and suffering of man.
Second, Jesus Christ speaks not one word about "human rights". This kind of concern is found only in New World Order writings, and it is found constantly there. Jesus Christ gave up all His rights to Heaven and to the Godhead. After He voluntarily relinquished those rights, He became a human, to suffer and be tempted in all points as we are, but without sin. Jesus' final surrender of His rights came at the Garden of Gethsemane first, and the Cross of Calvary second. At the Garden, Jesus prayed to the Father, that if salvation from sin for man could be accomplished by any other way, that He be released from the Plan for the Cross. However, when God the Father told God the Son that there was no other way, Jesus gave up His rights and went to the Cross for you and for me, paying the final, horrible price for your sins and mine.
Consistently in the New Testament, the Apostle Paul urges us to "follow" Jesus Christ, to live as He had lived. Indeed, Biblical Christianity has taught for 2,000 years that true service to the Master involves giving up our wishes and rights to obey Jesus Christ. When I hear that Roman Catholicism has changed its teachings to emphasize "human rights", I cringe, because this is standard New World Order teaching.
Just in case we miss the point that Pope John Paul II is working toward the goal of individual nations surrendering their sovereignty to the United Nations, the author of this article finally states, "...John Paul II has called upon the international community to disarm the aggressors in Bosnia; such action inevitably would require the use of force." The term, "International Community" is a standard one for "United Nations". This Pope is advocating that the United Nations override the sovereignty of the nations in this conflict, using military force. Do not be deceived. If he advocates such action in one instance, he will support it in other instances, until no one any longer finds it shocking or wrong.
Thus, we can see that all three of the prophesied parts of the kingdom of Anti-Christ are taking shape before our very eyes. Watch your daily news carefully. Understand how the many actions by our leaders are systematically leading us into the New World Order.
The time is really very late. Watch your news for the planned crisis which is designed to panic the American populace into accepting radical change in our government and our economy.
And above all, look up, for our redemption draweth nigh. Just as Jesus foretold, the bud has appeared on the vine, alerting us to the fact that the harvest draweth closer.
