THE CUTTING EDGE

The Apostle Paul issued a strong warning to all Christian leaders who will be leading their flocks during the End of the Age, that period of time after Israel returns to her land. Since Israel was re-born as a nation in May, 1948, we know that the world is currently passing through the End of the Age right now. And, right on schedule, certain churches are pronouncing the most incredible Apostasies imaginable!
Let us review Paul's inspired warning now:
"Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first, unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come, and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom, of perdition ... And then the lawless one (the antichrist) will be revealed ..." (2 Thessalonians 2:3, 8; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
What this Scripture literally means is Antichrist cannot appear until and unless the Christian Church leaders of that day open the door through which he will come striding! How are they going to open this door which will allow Antichrist to appear on the world scene? When End of the Age church leaders lead their churches away from the key doctrines of the Bible, they are committing the grievous sin of Apostasy, and are opening the door for Antichrist.
Cutting Edge has led the way during the past several years in warning people of the various ways in which this Great Apostasy is now underway, and has, in fact, become exceedingly wide and deep. The most important effort in this warning was Mac Dominick's book, "Outcome Based Religion", pictured to the right, which thoroughly exposes Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Church. Please note this book is also available in DVD and VHS.
We have also posted numerous news articles in our Daily News Updates Section over the past several years, telling the sorry story of the various ways in which various churches around the world have systematically been abandoning key Christian doctrines. Clearly, the door formerly forbidding Antichrist from arising is continually swinging open wider and wider.
However, the current annual conference of the Episcopalian Church -- the 75th General Convention -- meeting in Columbus, Ohio, during the past week, took action which may well represent the single greatest instance of Apostasy since the Apostle Paul penned these famous words. Please carefully read and weep.
NEWS BRIEF: "Episcopalians refuse affirmation of Christ", Virtue Online, The Voice For Global Orthodox Anglicanism, Posted by David Virtue on 2006/6/20
"COLUMBUS, OHIO (6/20/06)-The House of Deputies of the 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church today overwhelmingly refused to even consider a resolution that affirmed Jesus Christ as the 'only name by which any person may be saved'."
Can you imagine any greater blasphemy than this? The Episcopalian Church has now taken the one action which would deny their adherents any hope of ever going to Heaven. Listen to Jesus' Words:
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)
You cannot get any clearer statement from Jesus Himself that He is the only Way to the Father, Whose throne is in Heaven! Why, this Episcopalian statement calls Jesus a bold-faced liar!
The early Church Apostles reiterated this cardinal statement of the Christian Faith.
"Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:10-12)
The New Testament makes it quite clear that men may be saved only through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ! No other founder of any other religion on earth can save a person from sin. Therefore, when the Episcopalian Church affirms that people can be saved by means and/or names other than Jesus Christ, they have shut the door to their followers ever being saved. Do you remember Jesus' condemnation of the Jewish leaders of His day, because they had shut the door to eternal salvation for their followers? Jesus likens their action to "taking away the key to knowledge".
"Woe to you, lawyers
(experts in the Mosaic Law)! For you have taken away the key to knowledge;
you did not go in yourselves, and you hindered and prevented those who were
entering." (Luke 11:52; Parallel
Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Jesus is saying here that the Jewish leaders who were deliberately withholding key spiritual information from their people which would save them for eternity were, themselves, lost for eternity; however, their poor adherents were going to go to Hell too. What a double tragedy! Yet, Episcopalian leaders who are engineering this most unbelievable repudiation of key Biblical doctrine are going down this very same road!
Now, let us return to this particular repudiation of Jesus, for there is nearly as much shock in the explanations as to why delegates rejected this Biblical doctrine as you experienced in the first sentence, above.
" 'This type of language was used in 1920s and 1930s to alienate the type of people who were executed. It was called the Holocaust' ... said the Rev. Eugene C. McDowell, a graduate of Yale Divinity School and Canon Theologian for the Diocese of North Carolina." (Ibid.)
Can you believe this nonsense? This "graduate of Yale Divinity School and Canon Theologian for the Diocese of North Carolina" actually said that the Biblical doctrine that Jesus is the only way to Heaven was the doctrine responsible for the death of the 6 million Jews whom Hitler slaughtered in the Holocaust! What nonsense! Hitler attempted to destroy all Jews in Europe because he was a Satanist -- a member of that Brotherhood of Death Society called The Thule Society (NEWS1314), a most powerful Black Magick secret society.
As White Magic practitioner, Trevor Ravenscroft, reveals in his monumentally important book, "The Spear of Destiny", that "the failure of the Nuremberg Trials to identify the nature of the evil at work behind the outer facade of National Socialism convinced him that another three decades must pass before a large enough readership would be present to comprehend the initiation rites and black magic practices of the inner core of the Nazi leadership." (Page, xiii)
Indeed, no one can really understand World War II and the events of that momentous period, unless they understand the Satanism which propelled Adolf Hitler!
Listen to another quote from "The Spear of Destiny":
"... Hitler attained higher levels of consciousness by means of drugs and made a penetrating study of medieval occultism and ritual magic ..." (Page xxi)
We have stated time and time again the truth that Hitler's Thule Society is identical to the Bush's Skull & Bones, since both are Brotherhood of Death Societies.
Listen to Ravenscroft identify the truth of the Thule Society: "The inner core within the Thule Group were all Satanists who practised Black Magic. That is to say, they were solely concerned with raising their consciousness by means of rituals to an awareness of evil and non-human Intelligences in the Universe and with achieving a means of communication with these Intelligences." ("The Spear of Destiny", p. 161)
Now you know why Skull & Bones adept, President Bush, could have ordered the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq on a lie and authorized the extensive use of Depleted Uranium weapons, which have already infected 857 million people in the Middle East -- all of whom will die within the next 15-20 years.
Hitler even planned his invasion of Europe according to a fold-out map in the back of an old Black Magick book he had purchased shortly after getting out of the German Army following the end of World War I. Since Poland contained Europe's largest concentration of Jews, Hitler invaded that country first. Hitler's hatred of the Jews was so demonic one can only realize it came from the Pit of Hell. Listen as German Professor Karl Haushofer explains the hatred of the Jews which Hitler practiced.
"They merely imitate men but do not belong to the same species ... The Jews are as far removed from us as animals are from human ..."
Hitler chimed in:
"I do not look upon Jews as animals, they are further removed from animals than we are'. Therefore, it is not a crime to exterminate them, since they do not belong to humanity at all." (Ibid., p. 251)
Therefore, a statement like this one from this Episcopalian professor is absurd, revealing his total ignorance of the true situation. However, I must say that, unless someone understands the true Satanic nature of Adolf Hitler, that person is likely to never understand the depths to which Satanism played a huge part in the beginning, the middle, and the end of World War II -- and of the Holocaust which Satanism spawned.
Nevertheless, too many undiscerning, uninformed Episcopalians will take this professor's explanation as truth and will believe that a belief that Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven contributed mightily to the execution of over 6 million Jews.
Now, let us examine the actual doctrinal statement which 70% of the Episcopalian Bishops rejected. You will discover this statement to be Fundamentally correct.
"Drafted by the Rev. Guido Verbeck, rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Western Louisiana, Resolution D058 declared the Episcopal Church's belief in an 'unchanging commitment to Jesus Christ as the Son of God, the only name by which any person may be saved', and it acknowledged evangelism as 'the solemn responsibility placed upon us to share Christ with all persons when we hear His words, 'I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No-one comes to the Father except through me' (John 14:6)."
"The resolution further affirmed 'the substitutionary essence of the Cross and the manifestation of God's unlimited and unending love for all persons', while calling on the Episcopal Church to renew its Scripture-based witness to 'all persons'." (Ibid.)
When the Episcopalian delegates overwhelmingly defeat such a Biblically-sound doctrinal statement, they labeled themselves and their now worthless denomination as worthy of condemnation, for now their adherents will no longer hear the truth of the Gospel so they might be eternally saved. These Bishops have hidden the spiritual "keys", just like the Pharisees of Jesus' day; they will not go into eternal life, and neither will their followers.
We urge you to finish reading this news article in Virtue Online, for it details that the Apostasy of the Episcopalian Church began a very long time ago. This rejection of the Lordship of Jesus Christ is merely the latest in a long line of doctrinal rejections.
Can you hear the door swinging open through which Antichrist will stride?
Now that you know the seriousness of the rejection of Biblical doctrine, let us examine another Episcopalian conference abomination.
NEWS BRIEF: "Episcopalians Reject Ban on Gay Bishops", The Guardian (London), June 21, 2006
"COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - In the final hours of a national church meeting, the top Episcopal leader is trying to preserve world Anglican unity after Episcopal delegates rejected an Anglican demand that they stop electing openly gay bishops for now."
Now, let me get this straight. The Liberal Anglican Church demanded that the Episcopalian Church stop their practice of electing openly gay bishops -- and the Episcopalians refused! There are few issues that get God more angry than homosexuality. It is a genuine abomination for a church calling itself "Christian" to elect gay bishops, put them in church pulpits, and then refuse the Anglican demand that they stop this most un-Biblical practice!
Given the thorough manner in which homosexuality dominated the societies called "Sodom and Gomorrah", you have to realize that the churches of these two cities supported gay and lesbian rights and undoubtedly had gay pastors in the pulpit! America is truly becoming just like Sodom and Gomorrah.
But, why should we be too surprised, for isn't that what Jesus foretold as a sign of the End of the Age?
"Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." (Luke 17:28-30; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Please allow Scripture to finish this most unbelievable article. The Apostle Peter, writing under the influence of the Holy Spirit, accurately described the actions of these Episcopalian delegates and their certain destruction. This Scripture even provides the accurate label for these modern Episcopalian Bishops -- "false prophets, teachers"
"BUT ALSO in those days there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves, who will subtly and stealthily introduce heretical doctrines (destructive heresies), even denying and disowning the Master Who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their immoral ways and lascivious doings; because of them the true Way will be maligned and defamed.
"And in their covetousness (lust, greed) they will exploit you with false, cunning arguments. From of old the sentence of condemnation for them has not been idle; their destruction (eternal misery) has not been asleep. For God did not even spare angels that sinned, but cast them into hell, delivering them to be kept there in pits of gloom till the judgment and their doom. And He spared not the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven other persons, when He brought a flood upon the world of ungodly [people]. And He condemned to ruin and extinction the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, reducing them to ashes [and thus] set them forth as an example to those who would be ungodly." (2 Peter 2:1-6; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
God's judgments are already in the works against these false spiritual leaders of the modern Episcopalian Church. These poor men need our fervent prayers, lest they doom their soul and the souls of their adherents. The global stakes are high, indeed.
But, the final analysis is clear: the denial of these two key doctrines prove that the foretold Apostasy of the Church at the End of the Age is both wide and deep enough for Antichrist to appear. I can see that old forbidding door which has prevented Antichrist from arising for only 2,000 years swinging open wider and wider. It is only a matter of God's timing now that the door will be opened sufficiently wide so that Antichrist can march through.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
