"How great is the inward tranquility of God's Church"! "Peace which the world gives not"
The vision in this chapter describes the condition of Israel in Zechariah's day; but being interpreted in its aspect towards us, it describes the Church of God as we find it now in the world. The Church is compared to a myrtle grove flourishing in a valley. It is hidden, unobserved, secreted; courting no honour and attracting no observation from the careless gazer. The Church, like her head, has a glory, but it is concealed from carnal eyes, for the time of her breaking forth in all her splendour is not yet come. The idea of tranquil security is also suggested to us: for the myrtle grove in the valley is still and calm, while the storm sweeps over the mountain summits. Tempests spend their force upon the craggy peaks of the Alps, but down yonder where flows the stream which maketh glad the city of our God, the myrtles flourish by the still waters, all unshaken by the impetuous wind.
How great is the inward tranquility of God's Church! Even when opposed and persecuted, she has a peace which the world gives not, and which, therefore, it cannot take away: the peace of God which passeth all understanding keeps the hearts and minds of God's people. Does not the metaphor forcibly picture the peaceful, perpetual growth of the saints? The myrtle sheds not her leaves, she is always green; and the Church in her worst time still hath a blessed verdure of grace about her; nay, she has sometimes exhibited most verdure when her winter has been sharpest. She has prospered most when her adversities have been most severe. Hence the text hints at victory.
The myrtle is the emblem of peace, and a significant token of triumph. The brows of conquerors were bound with myrtle and with laurel; and is not the Church ever victorious? Is not every Christian more than a conqueror through Him that loved him? Living in peace, do not the saints fall asleep in the arms of victory? (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")

SPIRITUAL WARFARE: According to the Bible, every genuine believer should devote himself to being a killer -- not of animals or of men, but of SIN.
These authors deliver God's Holy message to genuine believers, that you must mortify, kill, and deaden the fatal sin within you. Sin is not a popular subject today -- with more than a few pastors unwilling to even admit that man has an inherent sin nature; but, just as a cancer patient needs to find out that he has this disease killing his body, every sinner needs to discover the nature of the deadly sin operating within his soul.
If you read this book, and aggressively apply its message to your life, you will, through God's Grace, defeat the unholy trinity of the World, the Flesh, and the Devil. Thoroughly Biblical and a must-read for the people of this generation, who have gathered about them leaders who tell them "smooth things, illusions", in order to grease their slide into Hell. (Matt 7:21-23)

---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
I. The fatal furor which erupted throughout the world over the cartoon images of the Prophet Muhammad shows just how huge a lie President Bush told when he assured Americans that Muslims and Christians "pray to the same God", and that "Islam is just another path to Heaven".
Do you remember President Bush's bombshell revelation just five days before the November, 2004, Presidential Election? Recalling his words:
NEWS BRIEF: ""Bush breaks with GOP on same-sex unions", United Press International (UPI), 10/26/2004
WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- President Bush broke with the Republican Party platform in supporting states' rights to permit same-sex civil unions. 'I don't think we should deny people rights to a civil union, a legal arrangement, if that's what a state chooses to do so. ... I view the definition of marriage different from legal arrangements that enable people to have rights. And I strongly believe that marriage ought to be defined as between a union between a man and a woman.
"Now, having said that, states ought to be able to have the right to pass laws that enable people to be able to have rights like others," Bush told ABC's Charlie Gibson in an interview broadcast Tuesday on "Good Morning America."
As if he could not believe his ears, Gibson then asked the President the next logical question:
So the Republican platform on that point, as far as you're concerned, is wrong?" Gibson asked the president, to which Bush replied: "Right."
In this interview, President Bush began by saying he supported "Civil Unions", which is a gay-coined term meaning "Gay Marriage". But, then, the President weighed in his religious views regarding the claims of Jesus Christ as to Who He Is.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush On Religion And God: President Believes Muslims and Christians Pray To The Same God", ABC News, October 26, 2004
"Oct. 26, 2004 -- While the president often refers to God during public addresses to his supporters, Bush's religious convictions don't always seem to reflect those of the conservative Christians who make up his political base. In an exclusive interview with ABC News' Charles Gibson, Bush said he believes that both Christians and Muslims worship the same God. 'I think we do. We have different routes of getting to the Almighty', Bush said. 'But I want you to understand, I want your listeners to understand, I don't get to get decide who goes to heaven. The Almighty God decides who goes to heaven and I am on my personal walk', he said."
Bush's last sentence is designed to trigger the false belief in undiscerning Christians that one cannot "judge" whether a person is right with God, thus hiding his damning earlier statement. This admonition to "Judge not that ye be not judged" (Matt 7:1) has been so twisted that Christians really believe they cannot know from a person's fruits as to whether that person is genuinely saved; however, the chapter headline on Matthew 7 in my KJV Bible says, "Christ, ending His sermon on the mount, reproves rash judgment". This is precisely correct! Jesus was warning against reaching a spiritual conclusion based upon little or no real evidence.
Proof this Biblical fact is Jesus' other admonition, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24) We are to judge righteously, based upon solid fact. Thus, Matthew 7:1 and John 7:24 go hand-in-hand with Matthew 7:16-20, where Jesus emphatically declares, "Ye SHALL know them by their fruits". (Emphasis added)
However, these are the President's own lying words: Muslims and Christians pray to the same God!
The preposterous and deadly Islamic riots which have been occurring all over the globe in these past days demonstrate the enormous falsity of Bush's statement. Let us review these current news stories now.
ISLAMIC REACTION TO DEFAMATION OF THEIR FOUNDER
NEWS BRIEF: "Muslim anger as more papers print Mohammad cartoons", Reuters News, Feb 3, 2006
"PARIS (Reuters) - Angry Muslims attacked a building housing the Danish embassy in Indonesia on Friday as more European newspapers reprinted cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad that have caused outrage across the Islamic world ... Muslims consider any images of Mohammad to be blasphemous and the cartoons have touched off an international row and a debate on freedom of the media and respect for religion. Up to 300 militant Indonesian Muslims went on a rampage in the lobby of a building housing the Danish embassy in Jakarta. Shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest), they smashed lamps with bamboo sticks, threw chairs, lobbed rotten eggs and tomatoes and tore up a Danish flag ... Palestinian gunmen seized and later released a German on Thursday, and a hand grenade was thrown into the compound of the French Cultural Center in the Gaza Strip."
NEWS BRIEF: "Anger over cartoon images spreads over entire Islamic world", The Australian, February 04, 2006
"OUTRAGE spread across the Islamic world today over Danish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad ... Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesman Yuri Thamrin said the dispute was not just between Jakarta and Copenhagen. 'It involves the whole Islamic world vis-a-vis Denmark and vis-a-vis the trend of Islamophobia', he said."
This Indonesian Muslim is entirely correct: the entire Islamic world is suddenly at verbal war with anyone in the West who published this cartoon.
"Pakistan's parliament today passed a resolution condemning the cartoons as 'blasphemous and derogatory' ... The editor of a Norwegian magazine which reprinted the Danish cartoons said he had received 25 death threats and thousands of hate messages. A Jordanian editor was sacked for reprinting them, despite saying his purpose had been only to show the extent of the Danish insult to Islam. Iraqi Christians said they feared a new wave of attacks by Muslims, driven by anger over the images."
The French Foreign Minister understood the issue pretty clearly: these insane protests were proving that the global view of the irrationality of Muslims is correct:
"French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy condemned the protests. 'I am totally shocked and find it unacceptable that because there have been caricatures in the West extremists can burn flags or take fundamentalist or extremist positions which would prove the cartoonists right', he told LCI television." (Ibid.)
NEWS BRIEF: "Danish cartoonists fear for their lives", Times On Line, February 4, 2006
"TWELVE Danish cartoonists whose pictures sparked such outcry have gone into hiding under round-the-clock protection, fearing for their lives. The cartoonists .... have been shocked by how the affair has escalated into a global 'clash of civilisations' ... A spokesman for the cartoonists said: 'They are in hiding around Denmark. Some of them are really, really scared' ..."
NEWS BRIEF: "Syrians Torch Embassies Over Caricatures", My Way News, February 4, 2006
"DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) - Thousands of Syrians enraged by caricatures of Islam's revered prophet torched the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Damascus on Saturday - the most violent in days of furious protests by Muslims in Asia, Europe and the Middle East ... Iraqis rallying by the hundreds demanded an apology from the European Union, and the leader of the Palestinian group Hamas called the cartoons "an unforgivable insult" that merited punishment by death.
"Pakistan summoned the envoys of nine Western countries in protest, and even Europeans took to the streets in Denmark and Britain to voice their anger ... With their Damascus embassies up in flames, the foreign ministries advised their citizens to leave Syria without delay ... Demonstrators moved onto the Norwegian Embassy about 4 miles away, also setting fire to it before being dispersed by police using tear gas and water cannons. Hundreds of police and troops barricaded the road leading to the French Embassy, but protesters were able to break through briefly before fleeing from the force of water cannons ... In Santiago, the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Chilean Embassy in Damascus was also torched ... A South African court banned the country's Sunday newspapers from reprinting the cartoons.
"Mahmoud Zahar, leader of the militant Palestinian group Hamas, told the Italian daily 'Il Giornale' the cartoonists should be punished by death."
"Iran's president ordered his commerce minister to study canceling all trade contracts with European countries whose newspapers have published the caricatures, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported ... The leaders of Indonesia, Malaysia and Pakistan denounced the publication of the caricatures. Pakistan's Foreign Ministry summoned nine envoys to lodge protests against the publication of the 'blasphemous' sketches."
NEWS BRIEF: "Cartoon protest in brief", Gulf News, 02/10/2006
"100 militants offer to become suicide bombers: Kandahar - One hundred militants have enlisted to become suicide bombers in Afghanistan since the appearance of "blasphemous" cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), a top Taliban commander said yesterday. Mullah Dadullah, one of the Taliban's most senior military commanders, said his militant group had also offered a reward of 100 kilogrammes of gold to anyone who killed people responsible for the drawings. 'More than 100 mujahedin [holy warriors] have enlisted to carry out suicide attacks' ..."
We could go on and on, showing you that all over the world, Muslims have literally launched a murderous rampage over a cartoon caricature of the Prophet Muhammad. Individual Muslims were setting fire to buildings, kidnapping and killing people, all in the name of defending the Prophet Muhammed, the founder of Islam.
How do Christians react when their Jesus is blasphemed? Recently, people in America and throughout the world have taken to blaspheming Jesus in ways much more offensive than a simple cartoon showing Muhammad with a ticking bomb in his turban. Remember when gay activist Robert Maplethorpe placed a crucifix (with Jesus hanging on the cross) in a jar filled with his urine -- and then placed the jar in an art museum? Remember all the gay plays in which Jesus and/or His disciples are depicted as practicing homosexuals?
Christians protested and wrote letters, but not one instance was reported in which offended Christians launched a rampage, killing and kidnapping people and setting fire to foreign embassies. What is the difference? There are several, but the fundamental reason is that Christians worship an Omnipotent Living God Who can take care of Himself!
1) Omipotent God
"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord." (Romans 12:19)
Therefore, while our hearts weep, and while we protest verbally whenever our precious Jesus is blasphemed, we obey this Scriptural commandment, and save the vengeance for Jesus, Who has promised that, at the right time, He will heartily avenge himself upon those who blaspheme Him. The entire Book of Revelation shows God's vengeance upon a world which has rejected Him. Old Testament prophecies also abound which tell of His End of the Age vengeance. For example:
"Behold, the day of the Lord is coming!--fierce, with wrath and raging anger--to make the land and the whole earth a desolation and to destroy out of it its sinners." (Isaiah 13:9; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
In His right timing, our Omnipotent God is going to visit the world in His fierce anger, destroying all sinners from out of the world. Later in Isaiah 13, God says He is going to "make a man more rare than fine gold, and mankind scarcer than the pure gold of Ophir" (Verse 12). When you carefully add up all the judgments in the Book of Revelation -- paying attention to the decreasing numbers of people left alive after each judgment -- you will realize that God is going to kill 66% of all the people on the earth.
Therefore, because our Jesus is Omnipotent and Has promised that He will one day take the lives of all those who have mistreated Him and His holy name, Christians do not feel personally obligated to start killing those who blaspheme Him and His nature.
Listen to some other pearls of Wisdom the Bible has to offer on this subject of wrath, or anger.
"For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one." (Job 5:2; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
"A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame." (Prov 12:16; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
"The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it." (Prov 16:14; Ibid.)
"A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment..." (Prov 19:19; Ibid.)
"Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God." (James 1:19-20)
Therefore, Christians are commanded to control their anger. Whenever a person is given over to quick and furious wrath, that person is easily manipulatible, since he is acting according to his emotion and not his intellect. Such a man, or such a crowd, can be so manipulated that a smart propagandist can literally exercise such control as to be able to drive such a person or such a crowd of persons, over a cliff like lemmings.
2) Christians are also filled with a peaceful Holy Spirit, Who restrains us from such violent outbursts.
Holy Spirit Fruits of the Spirit: "But the fruit of the Holy Spirit - the work which His presence within accomplishes is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law ..." (Galatians 5:22-23; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Compare these "fruits of the spirit" against the murderous rampages of Muslims throughout the world.
Now, listen as the Apostle Paul lists the completely different fruits of the flesh -- those who are not saved and under the power of the Holy Spirit.
Fruits of the Unsaved Person: "Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency, Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit ... Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." (Galatians 5:19-21; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
II. Just a few days ago, stories began to appear, reporting that these cartoons appeared first in an Egyptian newspaper and then were manipulated by someone who wanted to create the exactly the type of furor the world has witnessed this past week.
Examine this article carefully, for it shows the exact caricature which has sparked such terrible and deadly actions.
NEWS BRIEF: "Arab paper published cartoons 4 months ago: No outrage when Egyptian publication headlined drawings on Ramadan cover", WorldNetDaily, February 9, 2006
"While Muslims across the world have rioted in the past week against countries whose newspapers have published cartoons of the prophet Muhammad, there was no uproar when the same caricatures were prominently displayed in an Arab newspaper four months ago. The images originating in Denmark's Jyllands-Posten in September were reportedly featured on the cover and inside pages of Egypt's al-Fagr (the Dawn) in October, during the holy month of Ramadan. According to the Freedom for Egyptians blog, al-Fagr included the cartoons on the front cover and page 17 of its edition dated Oct. 17. The headline, when translated, is said to read: 'Continued Boldness. Mocking the Prophet and his wife by Caricature'."
NOTE: Click here to see the Arab editorialist report on the caricatures which appeared five months ago, on October 17, 2005, in the Islamic newspaper, Al Fager. No Muslims got mad then, and no one was kidnapped and no one lost their life.
Can you imagine this revelation? This cartoon image which has sparked such deadly protests the world over were actually created by an Islamic cartoonist and run in an Egyptian Islamic newspaper during the holy month of Ramadan! How is it that Muslims do not take offense when other Muslims print a cartoon showing Mohammad with a bomb ticking in his turban, but "get all bent out of shape" when that very same cartoon is reprinted in a non-Muslim newspaper?
Very good question, you probably agree! Where does the answer lie? It may lie in the direction to which I alluded, above. Any person given over to instant rage is easily manipulatible, and a crowd of such people can easily be driven over a cliff like lemmings. Is this what is happening here? And, if it is, who is the master propagandist doing the manipulating?
World Net Daily has posted an article reporting that, in order to further stir the masses, an Islamic Imam published three other very offensive cartoons -- which have now been proven to be fake! Further, the group which reportedly received the offensive cartoons has ties to the Egyptian terrorist group, Gamaa Islamiya! Can anyone say, "provocateur"?
NEWS BRIEF: "'Muhammad cartoon' proved fake: Imam added 3 especially provocative images to fuel outrage", World Net Daily, February 8, 2006
"One of three especially inflammatory but undocumented Muhammad images distributed by a Danish imam as an example of an 'anti-Muslim environment' in the European country turns out to be a poorly reproduced copy of an Associated Press photo taken at a French pig-squealing contest. The weblog NeanderNews pointed out the image used by Imam Ahmad Abu Laban was a faxed copy of AP's Aug. 15 photo of Jacques Barrot competing at the annual French Pig-Squealing Championships in Trie-sur-Baise.
"Since last week, Muslims throughout the world have engaged in protests and deadly riots in response to 12 cartoons caricaturing Islam's prophet Muhammad published in September by the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten and three much more provocative images that Muslim leaders have been unable to document. One of those images of mysterious origin, which never were published, is from the AP photo. Another depicts Muhammad as a pedophile demon and a third has a praying Muslim being raped by a dog, according to the weblog Gateway Pundit.:"
Let us take a moment to go to this Gateway Pundit, for it sheds great light on exactly who might have deliberately created this furor, and for what reason.
NEWS BRIEF: "Islamic Society of Denmark Used Fake Cartoons to Create Story!", Gateway Pundit, Thursday, February 02, 2006
"THIS WHOLE DANISH CARTOON CONTROVERSY WAS MADE UP BY THE "ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF DENMARK" WHO SPREAD THE FAKE CARTOONS ON THEIR TRIP TO THE MIDDLE EAST! The leader of the group is a radical Islamist known for supporting the Anti-Western Islamist struggle! The organisation Islamic Society in Denmark toured the Middle-East to create awareness about the cartoons, bringing 3 additional images, which HAD NEVER been published in any media source. Evidently, the originals were not offensive enough for the trip so they had to add these three:"
At this point, we have to conclude that someone who desperately wanted a "confrontation of civilizations" deliberately created these offensive caricatures and released them to an Islamic public whom they knew was primed to explode. Who could be behind this deliberate act of propaganda?
Since there are only two sides to this conflict, the person or organization or government responsible to creating and then stoking this fire has to be either Islamic or Western.
Iran immediately comes to mind, since she has been deliberately poking the West in the political eye for a very long time now. Seemingly, several times a week, Iran issues a bellicose statement, either calling for Israel to be wiped off the map, or telling President Bush exactly where he can stuff his attack threats. Time and time again, Cutting Edge has pointed out that the Iranian leadership is not acting as afraid as you would expect a rich third world nation to act in the face of a superpower's threat; rather, Iran has been acting as if they knew they had a secret weapon which would render them impervious to the threats of the superpower.
The United States comes to mind as being capable of generating such a propaganda firestorm. Since we are saying we are going to attack Iran if she continues to produce enriched uranium, our government certainly has the capability of planting such cartoons in the Egyptian newspaper and then in the hands of this Danish Imam, in order to generate the firestorm of protests guaranteed to make Western people think so lowly of Islamic people that a general regional and/or global war against Islam is politically possible.
As we have stated many times before, the Illuminati a long time ago decided that all adherents of monotheistic faiths had to be totally annihilated, beginning with Islam. Our first war against the forces of Islam occurred in the Gulf War of 1991, followed by our aggressive military actions in Kosovo in 1999, followed by our invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, followed by our invasion of Iraq in 2003.
The West is at war against Islam, and countries like Iran know it. Neither America nor Israel will attack Iran until the Illuminati is ready to spark World War III -- and that will not happen until Israel has completed her withdrawal of Jewish settlers from the West Bank. Toward that end, Cutting Edge released an article informing our readers that West Bank withdrawal is now official Israeli Government policy!
NEWS2110 -- "Israel's 'Acting' Prime Minister Olmert Rams Through Final 'Population Separation' Plans! West Bank Withdrawal Now Official Government Policy".
With this thought in mind, let us now go to our next segment.
III. Immediately following Prime Minister Olmert's announcement of his "Final 'Population Separation Plans a deliberate political Dialectic Struggle began to ensue. Remember, the Illuminati believes that nothing worthwhile can be achieved without a monumental struggle; they believe so strongly in this struggle that they often create the fight themselves, with equally committed Illuminists on both sides.
NEWS BRIEF: "Kadima MKs reject Olmert's plans", The Jerusalem Post, February 7, 2006
"Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert received a barrage of criticism from both right and left Wednesday morning, as well as from within his own Kadima Party for comments he made Tuesday night in which he suggested the possibility of further withdrawals. According to Army Radio, Tzahi Hanegbi (Kadima)said he would work against such a plan, while his Kadima colleague, former Shin Bet chief Avi Dichter expressed outright rejection of further withdrawals. Ministers from both Labor and Likud blasted Olmert's comments. Yitzhak Herzog of Labor called Olmert's speech a 'failed audition' and added that it sounded as if Olmert was repeating the platforms of other parties."
Indeed, Prime Minister Olmert is "repeating the platforms of other parties"! Consider the record:
* The "Liberal" Labor Party headed by Yitchak Rabin and Shimon Peres started the Oslo Peace Accord down the road to exactly the kind of settler withdrawals we are now seeing Israel carrying out.
* And, those policies were undertaken initially in the Gaza Strip last year by Prime Minister Sharon, head of the "Conservative" Likud Party.
* Right now, the Likud Party is headed by former Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is the ultimate Illuminati insider and who is thoroughly committed to the policy of withdrawal.
* When you examine the current leadership of the Labor Party, you will see Peretz as the leader, the man who voiced his support for the Oslo withdrawals the day after he officially became the head of the party.
* When Sharon withdrew from the Likud Party to form his centrist Kadima Party, he took with him a star-studded political cast of leaders, all of whom are as committed to withdrawal as Sharon and Peres and Rabin and Meretz and Netanyahu ever were.
Therefore, it does not matter what the current rhetoric is right now, because Israel is totally committed to the withdrawal of settlers from the West Bank. Period, end of paragraph!
Now, let us return to this news story, for more interesting detail.
"Olmert began painting in broad strokes on Tuesday where he thinks Israel's final border should eventually run, saying that the Jordan Valley, Gush Etzion, Ma'aleh Adumim and Ariel settlement blocs will remain a part of Israel. Olmert strayed very little from the parameters set by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who also envisioned Israel holding on to these areas in any final agreement with the Palestinians. 'We will separate from the majority of the Palestinian population that lives in Judea and Samaria, and it will obligate us to leave territories where Israel is today', Olmert said in a Channel 2 interview. 'We will move into central settlement blocks'. Olmert also said Israel would retain 'united Jerusalem'. Regarding the Jordan Valley, Olmert said that Israel couldn't give up on its eastern boundary."
This next segment provides more interesting detail.
"He said that the border he had in mind would not be the same as Israel's border today. He gave no indication of when or how those Jews not in the settlement blocks, estimated by Peace Now to be some 60,000 people, would be removed."
This number is on the lower end of the estimation we have been seeing regarding the precise number of Jewish settlers to be removed. The range we have been hearing is 60,000-80,000. We probably will not learn of the exact number until the withdrawal process is nearly completed.
Olmert even addressed the issue of the country's security barrier, which is running generally north-south along the West Bank border.
"Earlier in the day, during a tour of the security barrier in the Jerusalem area, Olmert also mentioned the settlement blocs. 'Even though the fence is a security one, my directive to those who are building it is that no matter what is done, it must be taken into consideration that Gush Etzion and Ma'ale Adumim will remain an integral part of the state of Israel in any future development s'. Olmert said that the fence was a security barrier, and its objective was to prevent terrorism. 'I am especially worried about the Jerusalem envelope, and it is on the top of the agenda, before everything else', He said. Olmert said that this year the government would make 'great efforts' to finish the fence as quickly as possible. He said that he was particularly concerned about the situation in Jerusalem, and that it was on top of the national agenda."
In the Fall, 2005, Prime Minister Sharon directed the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) to take the lead in finishing the security barrier, and told them that they faced no budget restraints. As every seasoned observer knows, the security barrier will only be partially successful in stopping Palestinian terror attacks. While the barrier has been fairly successful in stopping individuals from getting to Israeli civilian targets, it will not stop terrorist Kassam rocket attacks, as the Palestinians are gearing up to switch to that mode of attack once again.
The REAL objective of the national security barrier is to separate the populations -- Jewish from Palestinians. Please always keep that in mind.
1) Russia steps up her verbal and physical defense of Iran
NEWS BRIEF: "Russia confirms missile defence contract with Iran", New Kerala.com, 09 Feb 2006
"Moscow: Amid the escalating crisis around Iran's nuclear programme, Russia said Thursday that it will still arm Tehran with missiles that can secure nuclear facilities from attacks. 'We concluded a contract for the supply of air-defence systems to Iran and there is no reason not to fulfil it', Mikhail Dmitriyev, the head of Russia's military-technical cooperation agency, told journalists here. Worth an estimated $700 million, the deal for up to 30 Tor M-1 surface-to-air missiles is the largest since Russia in 2000 withdrew from an agreement with the US restricting the supply of military hardware to Iran ... The weapon is effective against aircraft, cruise missiles and guided bombs. There was no indication when the systems would be shipped to Iran."
As I learned while serving in US Army Intelligence, whenever you see a government admit that they are about to deliver a new weapons system, you can bet heavily that this new weapons system has been in place for years. In this case, we know Russia completed a system of air defense around Iran which featured mobile radar tracking stations and state-of-the-art missile systems.
Additionally, Russia has Scalar Weaponry which would encase the whole country of Iran in an incredible protective bubble, through which no airplanes or missiles could ever penetrate. We show this type of protective bubble in NEWS1776, "The Emperor Has No Clothes" - Part 1. (Original source: "Oblivion: America At The Brink")
Once you understand the type of protection Russia can throw up over either Iran as a whole country or over the individual Iranian nuclear facilities, you can comprehend how improbable it is that non-scalar American weaponry can successfully attack these targets. The only Western nation capable of defeating the Russian scalar protective canopy is Israel, which has both Scalar and Quantum Potential Weapons. Were Israel to attack the Iranian facilities, we might see that attack passed off as coming from the Americans.
Whatever damage Iran suffers in any attack on her nuclear facilities, we know that the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39 will protect her government from falling into pro-Western hands.
In NEWS2097, we postulate the possibility that, when Russia moves against Israel in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39, the Russians may be motivated by a successful Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, and may possibly be history's first confrontation between Scalar Weapons powers.
Finally, remember that Russia's current status as a major world power is at stake if America successfully attacks Iran, because on April 12, 2003, Russia's Putin boldly stated that Russia, France and Germany would act to prevent another American "Regime Change" in the Middle East! (Read NEWS1802)
2) American General James Jones admitted in an interview with Spiegal that "America enough on its hands right now". Let us review this startling admission.
NEWS BRIEF: ""America Has Enough on its Hands Right Now": Interview with US General James Jones", Spiegel Online News, English Edition, February 7, 2006
"General James Jones is the top NATO commander in Europe and leader of all United States forces in Europe. SPIEGEL spoke with Jones about violence in Iraq, similarities with Vietnam, and whether the US military is prepared for a potential escalation of the Iran conflict ...
"SPIEGEL: The US is not only in Iraq and Afghanistan, but in many other places as well. Worldwide about 350,000 US soldiers are deployed right now. Has America still got the capacity to fight another war if necessary -- for instance if Iran became a serious crisis? And how long could the only superpower sustain another conflict?
"Jones: That is a hypothetical question. The US is a big country with many resources and if it chooses to undertake certain things it usually finds a way to do it. But I'm not predicting another conflict. I think we have got enough on our hands right now."
V. In the "Scooter" Libby CIA leak case, Mr. Libby reported that the White House had ordered him to "leak" a CIA memo which had been written to discredit the truth Ambassador Wilson was telling about the Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction; weeks before Bush's invasion, Wilson had told the world that the Nigerian uranium "yellow cake" purchase scenario was fraudulent and that Iraq likely had no WMD.
NEWS BRIEF: "Cheney Spearheaded Effort to Discredit Wilson On Iraqi WMD", By Jason Leopold, Truthout Issues, Thursday, 09 February 2006
"Vice President Dick Cheney and then-Deputy National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley led a campaign beginning in March 2003 to discredit former Ambassador Joseph Wilson for publicly criticizing the Bush administration's intelligence on Iraq, according to current and former administration officials. The officials work or had worked in the State Department, the CIA and the National Security Council in a senior capacity and had direct knowledge of the Vice President's campaign to discredit Wilson ... officials said they decided to speak out now because they have become disillusioned with the Bush administration's policies regarding Iraq and the flawed intelligence that led to the war."
At this point, this analysis article delves into the deliberately deceptive nature of the Bush White House, as it set firmly on its course to lie to the American people as to why Iraq "had to be invaded". Since the United Nations' IAEA agency had clearly told the world time and time again that there was no firm proof that Saddam really had weaponized WMD which he could deliver to the battlefield, the White House had to have known from the beginning that Iraq really possessed no WMD.
Notice now how these officials corroborated original Cutting Edge articles NEWS1890 and NEWS1890b, "Bush/Blair Justification of Iraq Invasion: Now Proven To Be Lies, Exaggerations" in which we reported "Smoking Gun" evidence that the White House knew from the beginning that Iraq had no weaponized WMD. This current corroboration of our evidence lies in a slightly different direction in which our evidence pointed, but clearly shows the same underlying attitude of deliberate, systematized deception.
Now, let us return to this current news story:
"They said their roles, along with several others at the CIA and State Department, included digging up or 'inventing' embarrassing information on the former Ambassador that could be used against him, preparing memos and classified material on Wilson for Cheney and the National Security Council, and attending meetings in Cheney's office to discuss with Cheney, Hadley, and others the efforts that would be taken to discredit Wilson." (Ibid.)
NOTE: This was about 2 and 1/2 weeks before the Iraqi invasion. American military forces were nearly at the ready, awaiting only the orders which would send them across the border.
"But it wasn't Wilson who Cheney was so upset about when he visited the CIA in March 2003. During the same CNN segment in which Wilson was interviewed, former United Nations weapons inspector David Albright made similar comments about the rationale for the Iraq war and added that he believed UN weapons inspectors should be given more time to search the country for weapons of mass destruction ... The officials said a 'binder' was sent to the Vice President's office that contained material that could be used by the White House to discredit Albright if he continued to comment on the administration's war plans. However, it's unclear whether Cheney or other White House officials used the information against Albright." (Ibid.)
What is a "Christian" White House doing? How could these White House officials possibly "dig up dirt" against someone whose only crime was disagreeing with Presidential policy, which itself was built upon the quicksand of lies, lies and more lies? In the process of "digging up dirt", ultimately, "dirt" is manufactured if it is not legitimately discovered! This is part of the sorry legacy of the Bush Administration. When they are not "digging up dirt" on political opponents, or lying to the American people about the attacks of 9/11, the rationale for invading Afghanistan -- the phantom WMD of Iraq -- they are demanding and getting the most powerful set of dictatorial laws (Patriot Act) against American citizens the world has seen since Stalin and Hitler!
Now, let us return to this featured article for more interesting facts.
"The officials said a 'binder' was sent to the Vice President's office that contained material that could be used by the White House to discredit Albright if he continued to comment on the administration's war plans ... A week later, Wilson was interviewed on CNN again. This was the first time Wilson ridiculed the Bush administration's intelligence that claimed Iraq tried to purchase yellowcake uranium from Niger. " (Ibid.)
Ambassador Wilson was in real trouble when he "ridiculed the Bush administration's intelligence" saying that Iraq had purchased this yellowcake, a lie used to "prove" that Saddam was actively pursuing a WMD program. The clear problem with this story was that there was not one shred of proof, proving once again that a lie needs no basis of truth whatsoever. Propagandists know that, if a lie is spoken boldly and told often enough, people will start to believe it. For this reason, government programs of deception are carried out slowly, with a lot of continuous propaganda, so that, by the time the Illuminist leadership wants to carry out the lie, the people have been convinced.
Listen to the really strong language Ambassador Wilson used in the CNN interview:
" Well, this particular case is outrageous. I actually started my foreign service career in Niger and ended my foreign service career doing -- in charge of Africa in the Clinton White House. We know a lot about the uranium business in Niger, and for something like this to go unchallenged by U.S. -- the U.S. government is just simply stupid." (Ibid.)
However, Wilson knew even more than he could reveal during this CNN interview:
"What Wilson wasn't at liberty to disclose during that interview, because the information was still classified, was that he had personally traveled to Niger a year earlier on behalf of the CIA to investigate whether Iraq had in fact tried to purchase uranium from the African country. Cheney had asked the CIA in 2002 to look into the allegation, which turned out to be based on forged documents, but was included in President Bush's January 2003 State of the Union address nonetheless ... At this time, the international community, various media outlets, and the International Atomic Energy Association had called into question the veracity of the Niger documents. Mohammed ElBaradei, head of IAEA, told the UN Security Council on March 7, 2003, that the Niger documents were forgeries and could not be used to prove Iraq was a nuclear threat." (Ibid.)
Cutting Edge Ministries was very active during this final 2 weeks before the invasion, warning that the Bush Administration had not proven its contention that Saddam did, indeed, possess WMD that he could deliver to a target in 45 minutes, or any time period for that matter. On the morning of the invasion, Senator Byrd lamented on the floor of Congress that this day would prove to be one of the most disastrous in American history. However, most Americans were too caught up in the lies they had swallowed from the Bush White House to hear about anything so trivial as the truth.
Now, notice that V.P. Cheney deliberately chose to discredit Wilson, even though he knew that Iraq had no WMD.
"The former Ambassador's stinging rebuke also caught the attention of Stephen Hadley, who played an even bigger role in the Niger controversy, having been responsible for allowing President Bush to cite the allegations in his State of the Union address ... Hadley had avoided making public comments about the veracity of the Niger documents, going as far as ignoring a written request by IAEA head Mohammed ElBaradei to share the intelligence with his agency so his inspectors could verify the claims. Hadley is said to have known the Niger documents were crude forgeries, but pushed the administration to cite it as evidence that Iraq was a nuclear threat, according to the State Department officials, who said they personally told Hadley in a written report that the documents were bogus. The CIA and State Department officials said that a day after Wilson's March 8, 2003, CNN appearance, they attended a meeting at the Vice President's office chaired by Cheney, and it was there that a decision was made to discredit Wilson. Those who attended the meeting included I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Cheney's former chief of staff who was indicted in October for lying to investigators, perjury and obstruction of justice related to his role in the Plame Wilson leak, Hadley, White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove, and John Hannah, Cheney's deputy national security adviser, the officials said." (Ibid.)
One day, perhaps, the entire body of truth will emerge so that the American people will discover exactly the kind of President the Skull & Bones secret society has given the United States. Torture, lying, genocide in the Middle East with Depleted Uranium weapons, influence peddling, extremely pro-gay policies, Ecumenical spiritual activities, are just some of the evil fruits of this President. Not exactly "Christian", do you think?
VI. President Bush played the "War On Terror Get Out of Jail Card" last week, since that is the only issue on which the American people support him! Before you read this bogus terror story, take a few moments to read our study on the news headlines since 9/11, which proved that all the terror alerts were bogus and staged -- NEWS1888. We must warn you that, if you print this study, it is 72 pages long!
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush: U.S. Surveillance Helped Stop Attack In L.A.", By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer, carried by Brietbart News, February 9, 2006
"Under fire for eavesdropping on Americans, President Bush said Thursday that spy work stretching from the U.S. to Asia helped thwart terrorists plotting to use shoe bombs to hijack an airliner and crash it into the tallest skyscraper on the West Coast. 'It took the combined efforts of several countries to break up this plot', Bush said. 'By working together we stopped a catastrophic attack on our homeland' ... the president and his advisers have been vigorously defending the legality of the program, which has been questioned by both Democratic and Republican lawmakers. After weeks of insisting that divulging details of the monitoring program would hinder intelligence gathering, the White House relented Wednesday and began briefing some additional lawmakers."
Now we are getting closer to understanding why President Bush chose this moment to claim that his administration's use of the "spy work" gained by eavesdropping on American citizens has thwarted another "shoe bomber" threat which somehow would have been used to seize control of an American airliner so the terrorists could fly the plane into the "tallest skyscraper on the West Coast"!
The President showed complete disdain for the intelligence of the average American citizen by spinning this tall tale. Some questions come to mind, do they not?
1) How could terrorists using shoe bombs seize control of an aircraft from a crew specially trained in counter-terror tactics and gain entrance into a sealed cockpit?
2) The President offered no explanation as to how these terrorists could possibly have guided an airliner expertly enough to crash it into the tallest skyscraper on the West Coast.
3) Where were the Air Marshals which are supposed to fly on most airliner flights since the 9/11 attacks. Did the terrorists not fear an Air Marshall since they were armed with nothing but shoe bombs, supposedly designed to blow open the sealed cockpit doors?
The next news story shines an unusual light of truth upon this whole Presidential lie: the Los Angeles mayor knew nothing about this monstrous plot!
NEWS BRIEF: "L.A. Mayor Blindsided by Bush Announcement", By MICHAEL R. BLOOD, Associated Press Writer, reprinted in Brietbart News, February 9, 2006
"Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said Thursday he was blindsided by President Bush's announcement of new details about a purported 2002 plot to crash a plane into a downtown skyscraper ... I'm amazed that the president would make this (announcement) on national TV and not inform us of these details through the appropriate channels," the Democratic mayor told The Associated Press ... The mayor was watching Bush's speech on television Thursday when he first learned of the new details about the hijacking plot.
"I would have expected a direct call from the White House," Villaraigosa said at a City Hall news conference."
No kidding! If the White House was truly battling a serious "Al-Qaeda" plot to commandeer a commercial airliner by using "shoe bombs" to blow open the sealed cockpit doors, someone would have surely contacted the Los Angeles mayor, if for no other reason than to enlist his support, for he would have significant law enforcement and special para-military resources he could throw behind the effort of the Federal Government.
How effective was the President in playing this "War On Terror Get Out of Jail Free Card"? Let us now go back to the original Breitbart News article:
"Meanwhile, the president's monthlong campaign to convince Americans the government's eavesdropping program is essential to the war on terrorism appears to be making an impact. In a new AP-Ipsos poll, 48 percent now support wiretapping without a warrant in cases of suspected communications with terrorists, up from 42 percent last month. Half say the administration should have to get a warrant, down from 56 percent. Men in particular have come around to Bush's view over the last month, the poll suggested."
Did you catch that really pertinent fact? "Men in particular have come around to Bush's view over the last month".
Bush's propagandists truly do know what they are doing, and they know which hot buttons to push in order to appeal to a specific target group of citizens!
Now, let us consider an article in which an intelligence professional throws more cold water on Bush's incredible claim. Notice that Bush's claim is based upon a "discredited informant" who has already proven to be a liar.
NEWS BRIEF: "Intel pros say Bush is lying about foiling 2002 terror attack", by Doug Thompson, Capitol Hill Blue, February 10, 2006
"Outraged intelligence professionals say President George W. Bush is 'cheapening' and 'politicizing' their work with claims the United States foiled a planned terrorist attack against Los Angeles in 2002. 'The President has cheapened the entire intelligence community by dragging us into his fantasy world', says a longtime field operative of the Central Intelligence Agency. 'He is basing this absurd claim on the same discredited informant who told us Al Qaeda would attack selected financial institutions in New York and Washington'.
"Within hours of the President’s speech Thursday claiming his administration had prevented a major attack, sources who said they were current and retired intelligence pros from the CIA, NSA, FBI and military contacted Capitol Hill Blue with angry comments disputing the President’s remarks .... The discredited information dated back to the same period when intelligence agencies began receiving reports of a planned attack against Los Angeles. Counterterrorism officials say they are surprised that Bush claimed the plot was 'set in motion'."
"There was no definitive plot. It never materialized or got past the thought stage', says a senior counterterrorism official, who has worked at the CIA and the FBI, who talked to Capitol Hill Blue and the New York Daily News."
"Ridge left DHS (Department of Homeland Security) in February 2005 and
Bush replaced him with Michael Chertoff who agrees with the 'cry wolf' strategy
of the White House.
' Chertoff is a lackey', says Kevin Riley, a retired New York City Detective who knew Chertoff during his days as a U.S. Attorney in New York. 'He’ll do whatever Bush tells him to do'.
Intelligence pros at established Washington agencies laugh at DHS operatives, calling them 'Keystone Kops' and 'overpaid rent-a-cops', saying they lack any real expertise in dealing with terrorism.
“ 'DHS is a political police force', says a retired CIA agent. 'They exist to enforce the political propaganda program of George W. Bush. That’s all they’re good for and they’re not very good at that.”
Exactly! Cutting Edge reached the same conclusion over a year ago in our
study of news headlines in NEWS1888!
VII. In a related story, Bush's Federal Government is trying to pry so deeply into the affairs of average American citizens, our personal freedoms are truly at risk! Remember, our Founding Fathers knew very well that any dictatorial government must know the personal affairs of their population if they are going to successfully implement and then maintain, a repressive dictatorship! Therefore, our Fathers wrote tight Constitutional guarantees of personal privacy.
But, since 9/11, President Bush has been steadily eroding these Constitutional protections. List to how deep and how pervasive the Bush Administration's surveillance program has grown to be.
NEWS BRIEF: "TSA Chief Suspends Traveler Registry Plans", By LESLIE MILLER, Associated Press Writer, reprinted by Breitbart News, February 9, 2006
"Security concerns have caused the government to suspend plans for an ambitious program to check every domestic airline passenger's name against government watch lists, Transportation Security Administration chief Kip Hawley said Thursday ... Hawley did not say whether any security flaws or breaches had been discovered. The program called Secure Flight has been troubled from the start."
'It is strongly opposed by civil libertarians who fear the program would grow into a massive domestic surveillance system in which the government tracks people whenever they travel ... Government auditors gave the project failing grades _ twice _ and rebuked its authors for secretly obtaining personal information about airline passengers."
Notice that the Bush Administration has already attempted to secretly obtain "personal information about airline passengers", for which government auditors "rebuked its authors". I warn you with all my heart that this Bush Administration is subverting our personal freedoms as quickly and as thoroughly as possible, using the attacks of 9/11 and the phantom "War On Terror" as the excuse.
Information on individual citizens is always of paramount importance to severely repressive dictatorships, and this coming one is no exception.
Now, let us go back to this article to see how much private information the government was trying to gain from this program.
"Currently, airlines check the names of passengers against watch lists that the government gives them. Under Secure Flight the government would take over from the airlines the task of checking names against watch lists. The Sept. 11 commission later urged the administration to expedite the task because, it said, the watch lists currently used by airlines aren't complete. But checking names against watch lists hasn't been as easy as it sounds, partly because airlines collect only limited information about passengers ... Also, the number of names on the watch lists increased into the tens of thousands since the Sept. 11 attacks. That problem has resulted in passengers from infants to Sen. Edward M. Kennedy being mistakenly told they couldn't fly because they have the same name as someone on the watch list." (Ibid.)
Now, that is a problem! The government is like a hungry dog when it comes to collecting information on citizens; it simply cannot get enough. Since this is the real reason the government is trying to take over control of the airliner passenger lists, we should not be too surprised to learn that their rationale for needing more information continually expands and changes, as revealed below.
"The project has also drawn protests from privacy advocates and civil libertarians because its stated purpose has changed, often expanding." (Ibid.)
Now that we know the Federal Government has a rapacious appetite for private information on its citizens, we should not be surprised by the following revelation:
NEWS BRIEF: "US plans massive data sweep", By Mark Clayton | Staff writer, Christian Science Monitor, February 09, 2006
"The US government is developing a massive computer system that can collect huge amounts of data and, by linking far-flung information from blogs and e-mail to government records and intelligence reports, search for patterns of terrorist activity ... It is the federal government's latest attempt to use broad data-collection and powerful analysis in the fight against terrorism. But by delving deeply into the digital minutiae of American life, the program is also raising concerns that the government is intruding too deeply into citizens' privacy ... 'We don't realize that, as we live our lives and make little choices, like buying groceries, buying on Amazon, Googling, we're leaving traces everywhere', says Lee Tien, a staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation."
What makes this massively intrusive program work? You will discover that Homeland Security is the driving force behind this terrifying program. Remember, the end goal of this Administration is exactly what the Illuminati has in mind: total dictatorial control. Our government leaders are Globalists, not Patriots, and they most definitely do not have our best personal interests at heart. They are brazenly using "terror" as the tool by which they are going to one day suspend our Constitution and all our liberties.
"The core of this effort is a little-known system called Analysis, Dissemination, Visualization, Insight, and Semantic Enhancement (ADVISE) ... ADVISE is a research and development program within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), part of its three-year-old 'Threat and Vulnerability, Testing and Assessment' portfolio ... A major part of ADVISE involves data-mining - or 'dataveillance', as some call it. It means sifting through data to look for patterns. If a supermarket finds that customers who buy cider also tend to buy fresh-baked bread, it might group the two together ... What sets ADVISE apart is its scope. It would collect a vast array of corporate and public online information - from financial records to CNN news stories - and cross-reference it against US intelligence and law-enforcement records. The system would then store it as 'entities' - linked data about people, places, things, organizations, and events, according to a report summarizing a 2004 DHS conference in Alexandria, Va. The storage requirements alone are huge - enough to retain information about 1 quadrillion entities, the report estimated. If each entity were a penny, they would collectively form a cube a half-mile high - roughly double the height of the Empire State Building."
This next section is the one which can get a whole lot of honest Patriotic people in trouble and possibly in jail. This computer program is going to determine "motives and intentions" of "suspects"!
"But ADVISE and related DHS technologies aim to do much more, according to Joseph Kielman, manager of the TVTA portfolio. The key is not merely to identify terrorists, or sift for key words, but to identify critical patterns in data that illumine their motives and intentions..." (Ibid.)
None of this would have ever been possible without the attacks of 9/11 -- the greatest, most improbable lie ever sold!
VIII. Twenty years ago, Cutting Edge warned that the real danger of radical Rock-n-Roll is that one day, the entire Satanic Rock culture would become "mainstreamed" and consider normal. Sadly, we are at this point now. Not only did President Bush publicly extol the virtues of Ozzy Ozbourne and his "Black Sabbath" songs (NEWS1758), and not only were the aging Rolling Stones invited to perform at this year's Super Bowl halftime, but now Motley Crue is touring the country on a tour entitled, "Carnival of Sins"!
NEWS BRIEF: "Happy Crue", The State, Friday, February 10, 2006
"To hear the guys in Motley Crue tell it, they're just one happy family now that the band is back together and filling arenas and amphitheaters nationwide ... The band's 'Carnival of Sins' reunion is in its third leg. Touring began last Spring and the fact that the band is embarking on a third set of dates this Spring is a good indication that life in Motley Crue is harmonious ... for a band that is as famous for inner-band turmoil and wild lifestyles for hit albums such as 'Shout At The Devil', 'Girls, Girls, Girls', and 'Dr. Feelgood' ..."
"Things have gone so well, in fact, that Neil, Sixx, Mars and Lee plan to record a new studio album ... For the moment, all the band's efforts are focused on this leg of the 'Carnival of Sins' tour. The current edition will be similar to the previous runs, which means it will feature a special guest midget, roadies dressed up as demented clowns, and as one would expect, scantily clad females."
The very fact that Motley Crue is bragging about, and loudly touting, grievous sin brings me to a very special prophecy at the End of the Age.
"She has become a resort and dwelling place for demons, a dungeon haunted by every loathsome spirit, an abode for every filthy and detestable bird ... then heard another voice from heaven saying, Come out from her, my people, so that you may not share in her sins, neither participate in her plagues. For her iniquities (her crimes and transgressions) are piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her wickedness and her crimes and calls them up for settlement ... So shall her plagues (afflictions, calamities) come thick upon her in a single day, pestilence and anguish and sorrow and famine; and she shall be utterly consumed (burned up with fire), for mighty is the Lord God Who judges her." (Revelation 18:2-5, 8; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Can you see America's sins "piled up as high as heaven"?

An extremely rare 17th Century Rosicrucian
depiction tells the startling story -- a future Garden of Eden is planned,
to be ruled by the Serpent!
Perhaps no figure of speech represents God in a more gracious light than when He is spoken of as stooping from His throne, and coming down from heaven to attend to the wants and to behold the woes of mankind. We love Him, who, when Sodom and Gomorrah were full of iniquity, would not destroy those cities until He had made a personal visitation of them. We cannot help pouring out our heart in affection for our Lord who inclines His ear from the highest glory, and puts it to the lip of the dying sinner, whose failing heart longs after reconciliation.
How can we but love Him when we know that He numbers the very hairs of our
heads, marks our path, and orders our ways? Specially is this great truth
brought near to our heart, when we recollect how attentive He is, not merely
to the temporal interests of His creatures, but to their spiritual concerns.
Though leagues of distance lie between the finite creature and the infinite
Creator, yet there are links uniting both. When a tear is wept by thee, think
not that God doth not behold; for, "Like as a father pitieth his children,
so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him." Thy sigh is able to move the
heart of Jehovah; thy whisper can incline His ear unto thee; thy prayer can
stay His hand; thy faith can move His arm. Think not that God sits on high
taking no account of thee. Remember that however poor and needy thou art,
yet the Lord thinketh upon thee. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout
the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart
is perfect towards Him.
Oh! then repeat the truth that never tires;
No God is like the God my soul desires;
He at whose voice heaven trembles, even He,
Great as He is, knows how to stoop to me.
