---------- Inspiration For the Week----------"And they follow me." John 10:27
We should follow our Lord as unhesitatingly as sheep follow their shepherd, for He has a right to lead us wherever He pleases. We are not our own, we are bought with a price--let us recognize the rights of the redeeming blood. The soldier follows his captain, the servant obeys his master, much more must we follow our Redeemer, to whom we are a purchased possession. We are not true to our profession of being Christians, if we question the bidding of our Leader and Commander. Submission is our duty, cavilling is our folly. Often might our Lord say to us as to Peter, "What is that to thee? Follow thou Me."
Wherever Jesus may lead us, He goes before us. If we know not where we go, we know with whom we go. With such a companion, who will dread the perils of the road? The journey may be long, but His everlasting arms will carry us to the end. The presence of Jesus is the assurance of eternal salvation, because He lives, we shall live also. We should follow Christ in simplicity and faith, because the paths in which He leads us all end in glory and immortality. It is true they may not be smooth paths--they may be covered with sharp flinty trials, but they lead to the "city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God." "All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant." Let us put full trust in our Leader, since we know that, come prosperity or adversity, sickness or health, popularity or contempt, His purpose shall be worked out, and that purpose shall be pure, unmingled good to every heir of mercy. We shall find it sweet to go up the bleak side of the hill with Christ; and when rain and snow blow into our faces, His dear love will make us far more blest than those who sit at home and warm their hands at the world's fire. To the top of Amana, to the dens of lions, or to the hills of leopards, we will follow our Beloved. Precious Jesus, draw us, and we will run after Thee. [C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions", Emphasis was in the original]

Many more parallels are drawn between the kingdom of Satan and Benny Hinn's ministry. See necromancy, etc. on this video.

Most parents will do anything to protect the lives of their precious children;
yet, they naively trust history's greatest killer of innocents -- government!
This video that will open eyes. Destroy myths. Change minds. Save lives.
You have never seen anything like "Innocents Betrayed". This story has never been told in a documentary film. Sit and watch. You'll see the photos, the footage, the people, the faces. You'll read the laws and hear the proclamations. You'll witness just enough horror to understand how easy it is for armed killers to slaughter the disarmed, the powerless, the innocents.
Genocide examples from all over the world: Russia, China, Germany, Cambodia, Guatemala, Uganda, Rwanda and more. Examples showing how disarmed people in America have suffered persecution, mass murder, slavery, and terrorist attacks.
A fast-moving, modern production, Innocents Betrayed presents the entirely true accounts of how civilian disarmament made possible the killing of millions. The point is made sharply, clearly, unforgettably. It's the factual counterpoint to the lies in Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine."
You never received the facts of "Innocents Betrayed" in public schools, and likely not in private schools. Neither do your kids now.
Learn the truth now, before we lose our right to "keep and bear arms", a plan afoot right now. American lives are in danger, from a government intent upon taking your guns away before they clamp dictatorship on us all.
The Bible warns of God's judgment on societies which allow destruction innocent life. Any nation spurning that warning does so at its extreme peril. Pastor Anderson draws parallels between Israel in Hosea's time and America today, between the child sacrifice system in the Old Testament versus abortion in America.
God hears the cry of the innocents and He will not wait much longer before answering and judging the nations responsible for their deaths. Will we open our ears to hear their cry? Before God's physical judgment falls?
As the Terri Schiavo adult euthanasia case proves, this nation is now killing life at both ends of the age spectrum: At birth in the womb and at the end of life for the elderly, sick, and generally "devalued". Our national sins are piling up to heaven (Rev 18:5)
---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
I. The Purpose Driven Church phenomenon was granted a boost powerful enough that some people are calling it "from God". After reviewing the facts, we would certainly agree on one point: this public relations boost certainly seems to have come from a supernatural source.
Let us begin by reviewing the beginning story, and see it progress step-by-step by following the story line through successive Daily News Updates.
NEWS BRIEF: "Rape Defendant Allegedly Kills Judge, Two Others - Setting off Massive Manhunt", AP Breaking News, March 12, 2005.
"ATLANTA (AP) - A man being escorted into court for his rape trial Friday stole a deputy's gun, killed the judge and two other people and carjacked a reporter's vehicle to escape, setting off a massive manhunt and creating widespread chaos across Atlanta ... Hundreds of officers in cruisers and helicopters swarmed the area in the search of the suspect, identified as 33-year-old Brian Nichols."
Since we are living in the exceedingly deceptive Last Days of time (Matthew 24:24) , we should always examine developing stories in light of Bible prophecy and in light of the known practices of the Illuminati. Since facts have repeatedly proven that the attacks of 9/11/2001 were the actions of a government provocateur, we need to be most cautious.
Immediately, we see evidences of a "numeric signature" on the events of the very first day. First, this killing spree occurred on Friday, the 6th day of the week, on March 11 (3/11). Thus, we see a '6' and an '11'. Cutting Edge readers will immediately recognize that occultists place great emphasis on "6" because it is the number of "Perfected Man", that is, a person who has been perfected through human effort in a secret society and not the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ. The number '11' is the occult number for the coming of the ultimate "Perfected Man", the Masonic Christ. Time and time again during these past years, we have seen news events occurring with certain occult numeric signatures, among them "6" and "11". (NEWS1756)
Secondly, we see a "33" in the age of the alleged killer. This number is one of the most sacred numbers of all to the occultist, as it is "11x3", it is the age Jesus was when He went to the cross, and it is the quintessential Masonic operative number, appearing over the head of the double-headed Eagle/Phoenix Bird.
In the facts thus presented, we see three very important occult numbers undergirding the story: 6, 11, 33.
Now, let us return to our feature story.
"The shootings took place around 9 a.m. Friday - the fourth day of Nichols' trial."
A favorite tactic of occultists is to hide a more offensive "6" as a "9", which they consider to merely be an inverted "6". Therefore, we now have two (2) instances of a "6" in this story.
NEWS BRIEF: "Atlanta Slayings Suspect Surrenders", Fox News, Sunday, March 13, 2005
"DULUTH, GA. — The suspect in the courthouse shootings of a judge and two other people waved a white cloth and surrendered to authorities Saturday."
Brian Nichols killed three (3) people at the courthouse before fleeing. Occultists normally link seemingly insignificant numbers together to gain a sacred number; when you add this "3" to the "3" because March is the third month, you get another "33". Now, we have two instances of "33", a most significant intensification of this most sacred number. However, we will now see yet another instance of a "33" in the basic storyline.
NEWS BRIEF: "Hostage’s faith helped her calm suspect in Atlanta shootings", The State, 3/15/2005
"A new American hero was anointed Monday, on talk radio and television, in police stations and coffee shops. Ashley Smith, an anonymous suburbanite whose life was devastated by violence four years ago, was lavishly praised as the woman responsible for ending the massive manhunt for the Atlanta courthouse murder suspect. The police chief in Duluth, Ga., where Smith was held captive, crowned her 'a champ'. Network commentators dubbed her a hero. Her captor went further: 'An angel sent from God' is what Smith remembers being called by Brian Nichols, the shooting suspect."
"All of this attention came for a 26-year-old widow struggling with her own problems ... She told Nichols, hunted and already reviled for allegedly killing four people, that 'he wasn’t this bad person everybody made him out to be'. She read to him from Chapter 33 of the book 'A Purpose-Driven Life'. She told him he might have a purpose of his own: to turn himself in and spread the word of God in prison."
This news segment gives us two more very important sacred occult numbers. We see that Ashley is "26" years old; this number is sacred and used a lot in occult calculations because it is the number gained by multiplying "13x2". The number "13" is the occult number denoting supreme rebellion while the number "2" doubles the intensity of the number being multiplied.
Further, Ashley read to the suspect from Chapter "33" of Rick Warren's "Purpose Driven Church. Now, we have "3" instances of a "33" in this news story. Someone or some being seems to be trying very hard to send a message. These occult numbers undergird this news story strongly; our calculating here is simply what occultists normally do when they contrive a situation intended to move their agenda forward.
Other details in this story also do not make sense.
1. This hardened criminal -- being tried the second time for an extremely brutal and cruel 3-day rape of his former girlfriend -- suddenly turns as soft as butter once he takes Ashley hostage.
2. This hardened criminal -- who had killed 3 people at the courthouse and who is thought responsible for the death of a fourth -- does not put up any resistance, but only waves a white flag of surrender as he is surrounded by police.
3. This very intelligent computer expert allows his hostage to freely drive her car behind the truck he had just stolen -- a perfect opportunity for her to bolt to freedom -- and then he allows her to go outside, knowing she will immediately contact authorities.
4. This man -- who sexually assaulted his former girlfriend for 3 days -- hides Ashley's face while he is taking a shower so she cannot see his nudity! A man who has demonstrated sexual cruelty to one woman is suddenly embarrassed by the thought of being seen by another woman?
5. This hardened man calls Ashley an "angel from God". Why would he respond to Ashley's appeal to religion after resisting religious appeals from his former girlfriend during the three days of sexual assault against her?
None of these details make sense, and we probably will never know the full facts. However, the bottom line is that Rick Warren's "Purpose Driven Church" has been given tremendous free press from this story. Now, tens of millions more people will line up to buy his book and join his churches, even though he offers a counterfeit christian message which is really based upon New Age occultism, as Warren Smith so clearly states in his most revealing book, "Deceived On Purpose".
After writing his Biblical examination of the "Purpose Driven Church", Mac Dominick of Cutting Edge Ministries has arrived at the conclusion that this church phenomenon is truly the foretold religion which Jesus called the "Church of Laodicea" (Revelation 3:14-19). This foretold church had the following characteristics, all of which is part and parcel of Rick Warren's church movement.
1. This church felt itself to be rich and powerful at the prophetic time in which they existed.
2. This church thought it taught the truth, but was spiritually, "wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked". (Rev 3:17) The "Purpose Driven Church" does not proclaim the true Gospel message, but one that is without acknowledgement of personal sin, the blood sacrifice of Jesus, and without requiring the penitent to repent of their sin.
3. The people of this Laodicean church believed they were saved and on their way to Heaven, but Jesus said He was going to reject them, because they were spiritually "lukewarm". People of the "Purpose Driven Church" do not feel on fire, anxious to learn Scripture and dig deeply into the Bible through commentaries and special studies. These people are just content to sit in the pews each service and participate in their little study groups.
In fact, Mr. Dominick further believes that a supernatural spirit of deception is mightily blowing through the land and this world, propelling the "Purpose Driven Church" to new heights by blinding the spiritual eyes of tens of millions of people.
If this is the Laodicean Church of Revelation 3, Satan would truly like to see its tentacles spread widely, deeply, within the entire world. Now that this hardened 33-year-old criminal has been turned into a pussycat through the reading of Chapter 33 of the "Purpose Driven Life" book, tens of millions of people are likely to turn to this type of Christianity, and many more thousands of Protestant and Baptist churches will abandon their tried-and-true Biblically-based program for the "Purpose Driven Church" agenda.
Yes, we agree: Rick Warren's church movement received supernatural help on March 11.
II. Breaking News -- Terri Schiavo
Judicial Panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has just denied the family's urgent request to order Terri Schiavo's feeding tube reinserted. Urgent appeal is now being made to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has already refused to hear the case. (March 23, 2005)
NEWS BRIEF: "Federal Appeals Court Denies Request to Have Terri Schiavo's Feeding Tube Reinserted", by Errin Haines Associated Press Writer, AP Breaking News, March 23, 2005
"ATLANTA (AP) - A federal appeals court refused early Wednesday to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, denying the latest emergency request by the severely brain-damaged woman's parents to keep her alive. A panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals said in a 2-1 ruling that the parents 'failed to demonstrate a substantial case on the merits of any of their claims'."
Extreme advocates of Adult Euthanasia could not have dreamed of such an excellent scenario by which to implement government euthanasia of "devalued persons" as the one unfolding in our Daily News right now. Consider the facts:
1. After years of wrangling, a Florida judge ruled that the feeding tube sustaining Terri's life be removed.
2. Republican Congressmen and Senators immediately draft legislation allowing Terri's case to be heard by a Federal Judge. Note that this legislation does NOT force the feeding tube to be reinstated, but only allows the case to be heard by a Federal Judge. Many people are misunderstanding this fact.
3. President Bush flies from his Crawford Ranch White House to Washington, D.C., so he can immediately sign this bill once Congress passes it, which they did just after midnight, early Monday morning. The President signed this legislation at 1:11 AM.
4. Now, the issue is at the Federal level, a most remarkable turn of events. Normally, a state issue remains a state issue. But, now that the issue has been driven to the Federal level, the decision by Federal courts will become the new law of the land. Is unwilling Adult Euthanasia by the Federal Government about to become as codified as Roe vs Wade?
5. On early Wednesday, March 23, the panel of the 11th Federal Appeals Court issued its ruling, also refusing to force the feeding tube to be reinstated. They remarkably ignored much physical and expert testimony, concluding that the family did not prove their case that Terri was not in a state known as "Persistant Vegetative State (PVS)". The court concluded that she was in PVS, and therefore, deserved to die. She was living a "life unworthy of life".
6. An urgent appeal is now being made to the U.S. Supreme Court to save Terri's life. Should this court rule that Terri should die, forced Adult Euthanasia will become as much the law of the land as did Roe vs Wade!
Cutting Edge has been chronicling America's road to forced government euthanasia for over a decade now. We are not surprised by this turn of events, for this end of the road was very visible ten years ago. America's culture has been increasingly a "Culture of Death" ever since Rock-n-Roll Music turned into hard rock Satanism in the early 1970's. This development is just the latest inevitable result.
The discerning, informed citizen and student of modern history will recognize that America is far down that "slippery slope" of genocide against any and all "devalued citizens", a strong and persistent parallel to the Nazi personal genocide. Study the history of Hitler's genocide against all manner of "devalued" people, and you will see the truth of our statements that this nation is on the same path, and only a short time from reaching the same end. Hitler's genocide murdered 6 million Jews and 12 million other devalued persons.
This case carries much greater weight than just the life of Terri Schiavo; a national tragedy looms.
A Federal Judge has just refused to order the feeding tube for Terri Schiavo reinserted! (March 22, 2005)
NEWS BRIEF: "Judge Rejects Schiavo Appeal", Fox News, March 22, 2005
"TAMPA, Fla. — A federal judge early Tuesday morning refused to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, leaving the fate of the severely brain-damaged Florida woman unresolved. U.S. District Judge James Whittemore said the 41-year-old woman's parents had not established a 'substantial likelihood of success' at trial on the merits of their arguments."
Let us stop right here to examine what we have just learned:
1. In our original newsletter, posted Sunday evening (March 20), we expressed grave doubt as to whether the actions by Congress and the President would actually save Terri's life. Since the US Supreme Court originally ruled to establish Abortion On Demand (Roe vs Wade), Federal Judges have consistently acted to keep our burgeoning "Culture of Death" alive, well, and growing. Therefore, it makes no sense to place faith in a Federal Judge to take an action which would actually reduce this deathmaking. Once again, it seemed to us that President Bush and Congressional leaders were taking an action they knew would be likely to fail -- but at least their Christian, Conservative supporters would give them credit for trying!
2. The basis upon which Judge Whittemore made his decision is absolutely antichristian! Since when does a moral decision hang upon whether the action will be effective? A moral decision is taken upon Biblical principles -- period! This line of reasoning shows the pagan mindset of these Federal judges!
Now, let us continue with this feature article: You will see several instances of an "11" present in this story.
"Rex Sparklin, an attorney with the law firm representing the Schindlers, said lawyers were appealing to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta to 'save Terri's life'." (Ibid.)
As we have noted so many times before, occultists believe that a good plan may fail unless it is carried out according to the proper "sacred numbers". The ultimate number noted since the attacks of 9/11 has been the "11", since it denotes the coming Masonic Christ (NEWS1756).
In this story, above, we realize that the state in which this case is being heard is covered by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. But, there is another "11" in this equation. Listen:
We have reported that President Bush flew from his Texas ranch to be on hand to immediately sign the legislation which Congress passed shortly after Midnight, Monday, March 21. That he would wait to precisely sign the bill at 1:11 AM is just startling.
Another "11" is apparent also in the date on which this Federal judge made his decison: March 22. The number "22" is sacred to the occultist because it is (11x2).
This event is taking on an occult numeric signature. But, why should we be too surprised? This judicial confrontation -- if higher courts uphold this judge's decision -- simply legally establishes that America's Death Culture can now kill people against their will and against the will of their family members. The planned Holocaust against the devalued, the innocent, and the afflicted can now move forward.
The last matter you must understand is that America's "Culture of Death" has been forming for the past two decades. Our nation did not just wake up several mornings ago to discover that there are many people who believe that other people like Terri Schiavo have no right to live anymore, and may be put to death. Rather, this attitude has been quietly present in our medical establishment since the 1980's and has been quietly spreading outward throughout our society, infecting regular citizens.
Cutting Edge uniquely carries a manuscript detailing this quiet deathmaking in our medical establishments, the only book which Dr. Wolfensberger could not get published! This manuscript is entitled, "The New Genocide of Handicapped And Afflicted People". A Holocaust survivor and trainer of nurses to work with Handicapped people at Syracuse University, Dr. Wolfensberger is in a unique position to document that American hospitals and senior care facilities are killing more people than Adolf Hitler ever did -- and has been doing so for two full decades!
If you want to understand what is happening to Terri Schiavo, you must understand the historical context. This manuscript is the only resource on the market which informs you why America has now reached the point where a person like Terri can see her life snuffed out by order of a federal government.
Can you hear the footsteps of Antichrist getting closer? A new American Holocaust may now be getting underway.
As the Florida judicial branch ruled that Terri Schiavo's feeding tube be removed, America's "Love of Death" dance continues and broadens -- the life of Terri Schiavo's life literally hangs in the balance.
"... all who hate me love and court death." [Proverbs 8:36b; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
NEWS BRIEF: "Doctors Remove Terri Schiavo's Feeding Tube After Last-Ditch Congressional Effort Fails", AP Breaking News, March 18, 2005
"PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) - With a furious legal and political battle raging outside her hospice room, doctors removed Terri Schiavo's feeding tube Friday after an unprecedented attempt by Congress to keep the brain-damaged woman alive was rebuffed .... The move came after Republicans on Capitol Hill used their subpoena power to try demand that Schiavo be brought before a congressional hearing, saying removing the tube amounted to 'barbarism'. The attorney for Schiavo's husband shot back at a news conference, calling the subpoenas 'nothing short of thuggery'... The judge presiding over the case ruled in the husband's favor early Friday afternoon and rejected the request from House attorneys to delay the removal, which he had previously ordered to take place at 1 p.m. EST."
The US Supreme Court had earlier refused to hear this case, while the state legislature had locked horns over this contentious case.
Cutting Edge has been reporting for nearly 10 years now that, as America moves more closely to the beliefs of the Evil One, our society will move closer to the place where her people and her leaders will "love and court death". We are getting very close to the place where our local, state, and federal governments will soon be "killing for the good of society", just as Adolf Hitler did shortly after taking office in 1933. This case of Terri Schiavo means much more than the killing of one person; her death could open the legal flood gates, allowing a new Holocaust to flood this land, legalizing Adult Euthanasia just as Roe vs Wade legalized Abortion on Demand.
Adult Euthanasia advocates in this country are vociferously pushing their agenda of death-on-demand in this country, shrouding their efforts in the most admirably sounding words in the English language. They call people who want to kill themselves, as 'noble', 'courageous', 'compassionate', people who simply want to 'control' their final exit. Euthanasia advocates also vociferously deny that their Adult Euthanasia plan might possibly degenerate into killing people who are not terminally ill, or who do not want to die. And, such advocates deny most vehemently any suggestion that Adult Euthanasia might follow a parallel path of Nazi Germany!
To listen to Terri's loved ones, they uniformly state that Terri most surely would not want to be put to death, that she never expressed that desire to them. Only the husband wants her to die -- probably so he can collect on the insurance policy and gain all assets of their marriage.
The spiritually discerning will understand that this battle goes very far beyond the merits of just Terri Schiavo. At stake here is to gain the legal right to kill people at the mature and elderly end of the age spectrum just as freely as our society is now legally murdering babies at the other end of the spectrum. Do not allow yourselves to be deceived at this point.
Not only are our hospitals, nursing homes, and hospice centers now killing patients (Dr. Wolf Wolfensberger, "New Genocide of Handicapped And Afflicted People"), the floodgates now preventing wholesale adult euthanasia will really open wide if euthanasia advocates win firm and widespread legal support and protection for killing those who have "lost the quality of life".
In fact, experience in The Netherlands reveals that, once doctors are given the right to kill, euthanasia will go inexorably out of control because there are no truly binding limits once society gives doctors this legal right ("Death In The Netherlands: Dutch Doctors Kill Defective Children With Impunity", by Nat Hentoff, The Village Voice, February 18, 1997, p. 20)
Furthermore, parents in The Netherlands began to show hardened sensibilities toward children who are "problematic". Going back to our featured article, we learn:
"Dr. Fenigsen tells of a Dutch three-year-old who had spina bifida, but was otherwise in 'fair general condition'. For two days, he did not feel quite well and his parents asked for euthanasia. One nurse, appalled, opposed the decision and she and her husband offered to adopt the child. The offer was turned down. The boy was killed by physicians 'with drugs administered with intravenous drip'." (Ibid.)
Now, get this unbelievable twist: the nurse who tried to adopt the boy was officially reprimanded! Can you imagine parents wanting to kill their boy because he had spina bifida and was sick for a short while? Parents of "devalued children" also suffered a loss of compassion -- aided and abetted by a legal system which suddenly said it was all right to euthanize your "problematic" child. Listen:
"Dr. Fenigsen worries about the long-term effect of the permissive attitude in the Netherlands toward euthanasia for people with disabilities. There seems to be little tolerance for disabled children and the parents who raise them. In fact, Professor J. Stolk, a specialist in mental retardation at the Free University in Amsterdam, has documented cases where parents of disabled children are rebuked. For example, parents have heard statements such as,
'What? Is that child still alive? How can one love such a child?'
'Nowadays, such a being need not be born at all'.
'Such a thing should have been given an injection'." (Ibid)
Parents in The Netherlands are not intrinsically more evil than American parents; that country is simply further down the slippery slope toward Holocaust than America. Do not be deceived; this is the slippery slope on which America finds itself. The Terri Schiavo case is merely the major case which may establish permanently that our legal system now has the right to kill people whom others have decided should be killed. During Nazi Germany's slide down that slope, the first step was to kill people only on the authority of loved ones, or 'living will" type of documents; step two said that doctors and loved ones could make that decision, even if the victim did not state their willingness to be put to death under certain circumstances; step three saw other people outside the family and the medical profession make that decision; step four saw the Federal Government of Hitler step in to make that decision.
America stands at Step Three right now. Step Four beckons -- probably when Antichrist shall begin his planned 7-year "Cleansing of the Earth". This case demonstrates that the world is edging closer to the appearance of Antichrist.
However, are you aware that American hospitals, nursing homes , and hospice providers have been quietly killing patients for a very long time now? Former Holocaust survivor, Wolf Wolfensberger, now Director of Training For The Handicapped in Syracuse University, wrote a book which he could not get published. It is called, "The New Genocide of Handicapped And Afflicted People", and details the fact that, in sheer numbers, American hospitals and senior care facilities are killing more people than Adolf Hitler ever did, and for the same New World Order reasons. We carry his manuscript and urge you to read this book, for your understanding of the Terri Schiavo case will deepen and broaden!
III. The US Congress discovered a way to intervene in this "Right-To-Die" Schiavo case: Legislation is being rushed through which would force the "death ruling" of the Florida judge to be reviewed by a Federal Court. President Bush flies to Washington, D.C., to be in position to sign the legislation the minute it is approved.
NEWS BRIEF: "Congress Announces Deal in Schiavo Case", My Way News, March 20, 2005
"Congressional leaders announced a compromise between Senate and House Republicans that would allow the brain-damaged woman's case to be reviewed by federal courts that could restore her feeding tube. Opposition waned after House leaders agreed to give up broader legislation and accept a narrowly crafted bill that applied only to Schiavo's case. The plan is for the House to act on the two-page bill Sunday or just after midnight Monday morning. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said the Senate then would act on the House legislation, assuming it passes the House as envisioned, and rush the bill to the president for signature into law. President Bush changed his schedule to return to Washington from his Texas ranch on Sunday to be on hand to sign the legislation."
Cutting Edge has been following this national effort to legalize Adult Euthanasia for nearly a decade now. While we certainly hope and pray that Terri's life will be spared, we recognize that the issue is much broader than Terri: literally, the fate of potentially millions of future "devalued, handicapped" people like Terri hangs in the balance. The Illuminati plans to reduce the population of the earth by 66%, or four billion people; but if the Georgia Guidestones truly represent the bottom-line plan (Megiddo Two Video: DVD -- VHS ), then the plan ultimately envisions that only 500 million people will be left alive. The judgments in the Book of Revelation foretell that 66% of the population will die under God's judgments.
Nevertheless, the focus right now is on the life of Terri Schiavo, as it should be. Christians all around the world, but especially in America, need to focus our prayers and our efforts on the saving of this innocent woman's life. The "slippery slope" of Adult Euthanasia is a terrible one, as our write-up in Paragraph 2, above, illustrates.
Late today, or early tomorrow, the Congress plans to pass legislation which would allow federal court intervention into the case. President Bush is flying to the Capitol today to be present to sign the legislation. These dramatic theatrics will go a long ways to placating the President's vocal "Right Wing Christian" supporters.
However, will this action really save Terri's life? Federal Courts have consistently voted to expand the radical, anti-Christian agenda of the Illuminati, so it is doubtful that her life will be saved in the long run; we would like very much to be proven wrong here, but this effort to legalize Adult Euthanasia worldwide has been going on for nearly two decades now. This dramatic "Dialectic Struggle" between the State of Florida Judiciary on the one hand and a Republican Congress and White House on the other, may just be the final chapter of this terrible effort to legalize the killing of adult human beings.
Whatever the outcome of this climactic battle, please do not think that this effort by Senator Frist and President Bush means that they are Born Again Christians. As we have noted before, Senator Frist is a major stockholder in his family's pro-abortion hospital, and President Bush's spiritual fruits continue to prove his true spiritual nature.
IV. As the world's focus remains on Iraq, has anyone noticed that terrorist violence is expanding throughout the Middle East?
NEWS BRIEF: "Car Bomb Rocks Beirut Christian Area, Complicates Efforts to Form New Lebanon Government", AP Breaking News, March 19, 2005
"BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Investigators searched the rubble of a car-bombed building in Beirut for clues to an attack Saturday that boosted fears of renewed bloodshed in Lebanon and complicated already troubled negotiations between rival political groups over the formation of a new government. The attack wounded nine people and came amid the withdrawal of Syrian troops to eastern Lebanon and Syria ... The motive behind the bomb attack wasn't immediately clear, but ... played to concerns among some Lebanese that pro-Syrian elements might resort to violence to show, in their view, the need for a continued presence by Damascus forces."
Indeed, the one party whom most people immediately suspect is Syria. President Assad is determined to not be thrown out of Lebanon without a fight, and as we noted in last week's newsletter, is actively involved behind the scenes to ensure that Syria still controls Lebanon even after her showy public withdrawal of military forces.
We must watch this development closely, because Lebanon might be headed toward a repeat of the horrific civil war which ravaged her during the decade of the 1980's. Syria strengthened her hold on Lebanon, using the civil war as the excuse as to why her presence was so badly needed. After Syria thoroughly gained control over Lebanon, the civil war mysteriously ended. Now, President Assad may be steering Lebanon into a similar course, "proving" to the world that Lebanon needs Syria if she hopes to have stability and peace.
Finally, remember that the present Lebanese president -- Emile Lahoud -- is pro-Syrian; therefore, Syria already holds the key cards in this deck.
NEWS BRIEF: "Blast at British school in Qatar", The Australian, March 20, 2005
"A BLAST near a foreign school in the Qatari capital Doha this evening caused an unknown number of casualties ... A diplomatic source said the explosion, whose cause was not known, occurred at a theatre inside a British school in the Qatari capital. The blast was in the theatre known as the Doha Player ... Dozens of people, mostly foreigners, were attending the play ... The satellite news channel said a blaze broke out in the building and the blast set some cars in the area on fire."
This bomb blast sounds very powerful and will probably result in a number of fatalities. Qatar has long supported both Israeli and American foreign policy. What is amazing is that she has not been a target for extremists long before now. Further, this blast clearly targets the British in a most vulnerable spot: her children. British Prime Minister Tony Blair led Britain into the Iraq war, closely on the heels of the American leadership. In fact, some argue that President Bush would not have been able to go to war had it not been for the firm, unswerving backing of Great Britain.
Therefore, Britain ranks very high on the Iraqi insurgency hit list.
NEWS BRIEF: "25 killed in Pakistan blast", The Australian, March 20, 2005
"AT least 25 people were killed today when a powerful bomb ripped through a crowd gathered near the shrine of a Muslim saint in southwestern Pakistan ... The explosion happened at around 10.30pm (4.30am AEDT) in the remote town of Fatahpur, around 300km from Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province. "I saw 25 bodies myself. People were crying and there were pools of blood', Moahammad Amin Umrani, the mayor of neighbouring Naseerabad, said by telephone."
Resentment against American policies throughout the Middle East has been building in Pakistan for a very long time. It seems as though every action by pro-American president Musharref triggers a new round of active resentment among the Muslims in Pakistan. Key leaders in both the Pakistani military and intelligence services clearly hate American policies and have already carried out several attempts at assassination against President Musharref.
If this blast represents the beginning of an insurgency against Musharref's government, the war in the Middle East might be taking a very large step in a new direction. Radical Muslims would like nothing better than to destabilize and eventually overthrow America's staunchest ally in the region.
NEWS BRIEF: "Rice's Afghanistan visit marred by bomb", Swiss Info, March 17, 2005
"KABUL (Reuters) - A bomb blast in southern Afghanistan has killed at least five people as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made a one-day trip, pledging long-term U.S. commitment to support Afghanistan's transition to democracy ... Thursday's blast killed five people in the former Taliban stronghold of Kandahar, 460 km (290 miles) southwest of the capital. It was the worst bomb attack since August. More than 30 people were wounded."
Serving to remind people that the war in Afghanistan is not over yet, insurgents mounted this bomb blast, apparently to coincide with the visit of Secretary of State Rice. The fact that American forces have not been able to quell the opposition even though they have been in the country since October, 2001, must rank as one of the great foreign policy failures of any administration. The reality that the forces of the superpower, America, have not been able to put down a weak insurgency from a third-world power is very embarrassing and potentially dangerous to President Bush's future ability to enact his agenda worldwide.
What is the common denominator to all this expanding violence? Iran.
Nearly two years ago, as Coalition Forces were streaming over the border into Iraq, we posted an analysis article in which we reported that Iran had developed a strong plan to counter the American-led invasion through indirect, asymmetric warfare. This article is NEWS1910, entitled, "HAS IRAN "IGNITED MANY FIRES" TO SET OFF MIDDLE EAST REGIONAL WAR?"
According to this strategy, Iranian military and domestic leadership were quite content to allow America to defeat Iraq, because they considered Iraq to be a "swamp" for the American "Great Satan". Listen to the exact wording of this official Iranian viewpoint.
" 'Iraq is a swamp', Khamenei said in his address to the guards. 'The Great Satan will get caught in that swamp; and that will speed up its inevitable collapse'. In a recent article Velayati spelled out a strategy aimed at 'confronting the Great Satan in a number of fronts.' "
Once American forces were tied down in Iraq, Iran planned to spark explosions in a number of different regions. Look at these regions in light of the current expansion of violent terrorism in the Middle East:
1. Iraq2. Afghanistan3. Azerbaijan4. Israel
We must watch developments in the Middle East in light of the fact that Iran originally planned to spread the fighting throughout the Middle East, including Muslim nations formerly under U.S.S.R. control, and to Israel. World War III may be steadily building through these ever-expanding centers of insurgent violence.
V. Iraq violence continues, even as the new national assembly opened its doors on Wednesday, March 16.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq National Assembly convenes", Tehran Times, March 17, 2005
"BAGHDAD, Iraq (Agencies) -- Calling for democracy and freedom in the midst of insurgent attacks, the leaders of Iraq's interim government Wednesday challenged the country's new National Assembly to strive for 'national unity'. The 275-member assembly was sworn in, even as about half a dozen explosions rattled the area around the convention center where the members were meeting ... The U.S. military said it was investigating the cause of the explosions. 'Freedom and democracy are great goals we should achieve', interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi told the gathering. 'We have great duties to face and stand up to'."
The Iraqi insurgency sent a message to the new assembly through these many attacks: cooperate with the Americans, and your life is in mortal danger. For the past few months, we have seen repeated instances where insurgents have targeted Iraqi officials who are cooperating with the Bush Administration, either killing or wounding them. Throughout the region, Sunni insurgents are targeting all Iraqis cooperating with the Americans; even the Shi'ite leadership is attempting to sound its opposition to killing civilians without being seen to line up on the American side.
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraqi general shot dead by US troops at checkpoint west of Ramadi", The Turkish Press, 3/15/2005
"RAMADI, Iraq - The deputy commander of the Iraqi army in western Al-Anbar province was shot dead by US troops at a checkpoint Tuesday night ... 'The US forces opened fire at 8:00 pm (1700 GMT) on Brigadier General Ismail Swayed al-Obeid, who had left his base in Baghdadi to head home', police Captain Amin al-Hitti said ... 'They spotted him on the road after the curfew, which goes into effect at 6 pm...' "
As if our troubles in Iraq were not large enough, American troops have now killed an Iraqi general who was apparently cooperating fully with Coalition forces. At this time, there has been no evidence put forth which would suggest that this killing was anything other than accidental.
However, this incident does illustrate the truth that American forces continue to "light up" (heavily fire upon) civilian vehicles on the roads and passing through its checkpoints. We reported on this tactic about one year ago, and it seems like nothing has changed. . Just last week, we were reporting the embarrassing killing of an Italian secret service agent by American forces who targeted the car carrying a recently released Italian journalist to the Baghdad airport.
NEWS BRIEF: "Assailants murder four Iraqi police officers in Kirkuk", Haaretz News, March 20, 2005
"BAGHDAD - Attackers gunned down a police officer heading to work yesterday in the oil-rich northern Iraq city of Kirkuk, then bombed a funeral procession carrying his corpse, killing three other policemen ... The attackers sprayed automatic-weapons fire from a vehicle early yesterday, killing the policeman as he made his way to the station house ... A short time later, a roadside bomb hit hundreds of mourners and security forces transporting the corpse for burial, killing policeman Dashti Talabani - the cousin of leading Kurdish politician Jalal Talabani, head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan. Two other police officers died in the bombing and two more suffered injuries..."
"The Kirkuk attacks came as unidentified assailants also killed police Commissioner Ahmed Ali Kadim as he traveled to his office in the Doura neighborhood of Baghdad."
V. As the violence continues to spiral upward, more American soldiers are refusing Iraq duty.
NEWS BRIEF: " 'They can't train you for the reality of Iraq. You can't have a mass grave with dogs eating the people in it' ", The Guardian (London), March 19, 2005
"Two years after the war began, a growing number of US troops are refusing to return to Iraq ... At the same time that Kevin Benderman's unit was called up for a second tour in Iraq with the Third Infantry Division, two soldiers tried to kill themselves and another had a relative shoot him in the leg. Seventeen went awol or ran off to Canada, and Sergeant Benderman, whose family has sent a son to every war since the American revolution, defied his genes and nine years of military training and followed his conscience. As the division packed its gear to leave Fort Stewart, Sgt Benderman applied for a discharge as a conscientious objector - an act seen as a betrayal by many in a military unit considered the heart of the US army, the 'Walking Pride of Uncle Sam' ... They may not be part of any organised anti-war movement, but the conscientious objectors, runaways, and other irregular protesters suggest that, two years on, the war is taking a heavy toll. 'They can't train you for the reality. You can't have a mass grave with dogs eating the people in it', Sgt Benderman told the Guardian."
I do not know what surprises me more about this paragraph: the description of the number of civilians killed and dogs eating their carcasses, or the description of more American troops refusing to be sent back to Iraq. Many times, the difference between being satisfied with your situation and unhappy is simply a matter of failed expectations. Prior to the invasion, American soldiers were told repeatedly that the Iraqi people were going to view them as emancipators, and would likely welcome them with open arms. Some G.I.'s actually envisioned throngs of civilians cheering them onward with flowers being given many. When this reality did not happen, and when the "liberated" civilians turned to arms to defeat the American "occupiers", many soldiers suffered a great loss of expectation, giving rise to disillusionment bordering on despair.
However, as this article reports, the real disillusionment set in because of horrible combat conditions, especially seeing so many civilians die. Remember that British Think Tank report issued in late October, 2004, which reported that at least 100,000 Iraqi civilians have died since the invasion? If you have not yet read this report, we urge you to do so now, as it will add great credence to this soldier's comments about mass graves of people being eaten by hungry dogs.
NEWS BRIEF: "100,000 Iraqi civilians dead, says study", by Sarah Boseley, Health Editor, The Guardian (London), October 29, 2004
"About 100,000 Iraqi civilians - half of them women and children - have
died in Iraq since the invasion, mostly as a result of airstrikes by coalition
forces, according to the first reliable study of the death toll from Iraqi
and US public health experts.
The study, which was carried out in 33 randomly-chosen neighbourhoods of Iraq representative of the entire population, shows that violence is now the leading cause of death in Iraq ... The biggest death toll recorded by the researchers was in Falluja, which registered two-thirds of the violent deaths they found."
While the actual number of American soldiers refusing to be sent back to Iraq remains small, if this story represents a future trend, American leadership must be very concerned. Widespread resistance to the Vietnam War was one of the reasons we finally pulled out of that conflict. Is history repeating itself?
VI. Just as many predicted, American and International companies are reaping huge financial benefits from the "Iraqi Reconstruction" project! In fact, the scandal is so big, some are calling it the world's largest corruption scandal ever! Remember, many of these contracts were awarded without any competitive bidding!
NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq rebuilding is major corruption risk", Reuters, reprinted in Khaleej Times, 16 March 2005
"BERLIN - The reconstruction of Iraq risks turning into the world’s biggest corruption scandal, Transparency International said on Wednesday in a report focused on a worldwide problem of bribery in the building industry. 'If urgent steps are not taken, Iraq will not become the shining beacon of democracy envisaged by the Bush administration, it will become the biggest corruption scandal in history', the independent anti-graft group wrote in its annual Global Corruption Report ... Corruption was likely to worsen as large-scale spending on building contracts and procurement got under way ... surveys had repeatedly shown that corruption was most rife in the $3.2 trillion construction sector and plagued both the developed and developing worlds."
"To counter the problem, Transparency International issued a list of minimum standards for public procurement, including measures to ensure transparent, competitive bidding and the blacklisting of companies caught offering bribes."
While massive construction projects are generally riddled with corruption to begin with, the Bush Administration did not vigorously set up proper safeguards when it awarded massive reconstruction contracts to "rebuild Iraq". The same Bechtal Corporation who wasted enormous sums of money during its poorly constructed "Big Dig Project" in the Boston, Massachusetts, area, was awarded even more enormous sums of money for Iraq.
Once again, the Bush Administration finds itself on the wrong side of a major issue, a major part of its global "War On Terror". Remember that the truth of a matter is often lying exactly in the opposite direction of the public rhetoric (NEWS1558), "Breaking Out of the Mental Box: Learning To Think In The Opposite Direction". When it comes to "rebuilding Iraq", this premise certainly holds true.
VII. As Prime Minister Sharon began to disengage from The Gaza Strip and selected West Bank areas, his enemies pressed the one issue which could prove to be most embarrassing.
NEWS BRIEF: "Sharon in 1974: "I Would Not Fulfill Such an Order", Israel National News, March 20, 2005
" 'This is an immoral order... I wouldn't fulfill such an order'. Speaking in 1974, Ariel Sharon added that neither would he issue such an order. He was referring to evacuating Jews from the Land. Sharon said this on June 4, 1974, during an attempt by IDF soldiers to remove a group of would-be settlers from the area that was planned to become Elon Moreh in the Shomron ... one of the IDF officers said to Sharon, who had been elected to the Knesset for the first time only five months earlier: "Arik, when you gave us the order to cross the Suez Canal during the Yom Kippur War [eight months ago], I knew it was suicide – but I went anyway, because that was your order. Now you demand of us to violate an order of our commander? Is that what you would have wanted from your soldiers?"
"Sharon then responded that the order to remove the Jews from the land, where they had fenced off a half-acre and set up 16 tents, was immoral, 'and to orders of this type, one must refuse. I would not fulfill such an order'."
The world now stands in March, 2005, fully 31 years after Knesset MK Sharon bluntly told IDF officers that they must refuse to carry out such "illegal orders" as the ones they had just been handed, i.e., to forcibly remove Jews from the land. Today, Prime Minister Sharon is bluntly ordering his current IDF officer cadre to carry out the very forced evacuation orders which he stated in 1974 were so heinous that military officers must -- as their duty -- refuse to carry out the order.
How can a man flip-flop so completely on an issue this vital to Israel's survival? Has he now lost his mind? No, the only way to answer this question is to realize that, today, Sharon has completely switched to the plan of the Illuminati. Today, he is no longer the Israeli patriot he used to be. Time and time again in modern history, we have seen dramatic switches of policy simply and only because the global plan of the Illuminati is forcing its demands upon the individual making the dramatic policy shift.
Today, Ariel Sharon is demanding that Jewish settlers leave their Biblically mandated land, to be relocated so the Palestinians can move right in. So many Jewish people are resisting this horrible plan that the Sharon government has been forced into interesting countermeasures.
NEWS BRIEF: "Israeli Military to Ban Israelis From Moving to West Bank Settlements Slated for Evacuation", AP Breaking News, March 20, 2005
"TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - The army announced new steps Saturday to thwart settler resistance to withdrawal plans, and thousands of demonstrators jammed downtown Tel Aviv to back Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's orders for a pullout from the Gaza Strip and part of the West Bank. The demonstration, seeking to counter a recent string of large protests by opponents of the withdrawal, took place as military officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Israelis would be barred from moving to West Bank settlements slated for evacuation. The army, in an order issued late last week, banned Israelis from relocating to Gaza."
This story is really interesting. So many Jewish citizens living in Israel in areas not planned for evacuation are planning to switch their residency to Gaza, so that the number of citizens which Israeli authorities will be forced to evacuate will simply explode.
Authorities are struggling with the task of forcibly removing 9,000 settlers; if the number to be forced out of their homes suddenly swelled to 100,000, Sharon's plan would be dead -- and he knows it.
VIII. Meanwhile, the Palestinian government, already embattled by resistance from militant terrorist organizations, is trying to forge ahead simply so the Palestinians can finally get their own government. Their efforts seemed concentrated in two major categories.
Setting A Long-Term Cease-Fire
NEWS BRIEF: "Palestinians put fight on hold", By Nicolas Rothwell, The Australian News, March 19, 2005
"THE informal Palestinian ceasefire with Israel is to be extended indefinitely, officials from the Cairo summit of Palestinian factions confirmed yesterday at the end of a fractious three-day meeting. The decision, widely viewed as a precondition for progress towards full negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, was at once hailed by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as a 'positive first step' ... The truce, which is expected to last until the end of the year, stops noticeably short of a complete end to hostilities.
"And there are no suggestions that a full accord will be signed with the Israeli side."
This 'ceasefire' is simply a tactical 'hudna' cessation of hostilities which will allow Israel to complete her withdrawal so the Palestinian government headed by Chairman Abbas can assume daily operational control over the areas being vacated. There is no possibility that a Palestinian government can be established as long as terrorist attacks continue unceasingly; Sharon would be seen as "retreating under fire", and that is not going to happen.
Therefore, it is in the best interests of both the Israeli and the Palestinian sides if a temporary ceasefire can be established.
Israel's Defense Minister immediately warned Israelis to not get euphoric over this ceasefire.
NEWS BRIEF: "Ya'alon: 'Don't get intoxicated by calm' ", The Jerusalem Post, March 16, 2005
" 'Do not get intoxicated by the current calm in the region. As long as [Palestinian Authority Chairman] Abbas fails to collect the arms from the terror groups, the conflict will not end', Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Ya'alon warned on Friday. According to Ya'alon, who spoke to Haifa businessmen, 'The groups are utilizing the calm to further arm themselves as well as produce explosives and build up their depleted ranks'."
This description of the tactical ceasefire by Ya'alon is the classic definition of an Islamic "hudna" ceasefire -- make the temporary lull in violence work in the Muslim favor by arming yourself, build up your forces, make the enemy go to sleep, and plan to attack once the military balance shifts in your favor. That is a classic Hudna ceasefire as espoused by the Prophet Muhammed, and that is exactly what the Palestinians are now doing.
Training Palestinian Forces To Assume Control In Orderly Manner
NEWS BRIEF: "Palestinians train force to handle pullout", Reuters, reprinted by ynetnews.com, March 17, 2005
"Thousands of Palestinian security men have been trained for a special force to take over the settlements in the Gaza Strip after the planned pullout ... Palestinian Preventive Security chief in Gaza, Rashid Abu Shbak, told Reuters that men from several branches of the forces had been brought into the unit that was given special training focused on ensuring order ... 'If settlements are kept intact, the Palestinian security forces would deploy in those areas to take over control ... To prevent the curious and those who seek destruction or any illegal entry', Abu Shbak said."
"The way in which the Palestinians assume control is seen as a test that could have bearing on any future peace negotiations with Israel for a state on land in both Gaza and the West Bank. Concerns are rife on both sides that a plethora of security forces would fail to prevent scenes of chaos, allowing Islamic militants or other armed groups to emerge dominant."
The last thing Sharon wants to see happen is to be forced by events to retake the areas from which Israeli forces have just evacuated, especially since the evacuations were carried out with such internal stress and turmoil. Therefore, Palestinian forces simply must establish a control firm enough, that will last long enough, to provide the kind of utopian expectation which would allow Sharon to effect the evacuation.
IX. President Bush's Pentagon has just formally codified unilateral, preemptive attacks upon any nation "thought" to pose a risk to our national security!
Since World War II, an adage about government programs has consistently held true, and holds true int his instance: "In business, a failed program is discontinued, but in government, a failed program is expanded and given more funds".
Since this preemptive strike policy was the power behind our invasion of Iraq, it is highly significant that, instead of learning from our "mistakes", the Bush Administration now broadens and greatly empowers, this policy which has so failed us in Iraq.
NEWS BRIEF: "Policy OKs First Strike To Protect U.S.", Los Angeles Times, March 19, 2005
"Pentagon strategic plan codifies unilateral, preemptive attacks. The doctrine marks a shift from coalitions such as NATO, analysists say. Two years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the Pentagon has formally included in key strategic plans provisions for launching preemptive strikes on nations thought to pose a threat to the United States. The doctrine also now stipulates that the U.S. will use 'active deterrence' in concert with its allies 'if we can', but could act unilaterally otherwise .. The changes codify the more assertive defense policy adopted by the Bush administration since the Sept. 11 attacks ..."
For a year and a half prior to the Iraqi invasion, Cutting Edge repeatedly stated that President Bush's team had simply no definitive proof that Iraq ever possessed WMD to the degree stated to justify the invasion. Upon what basis did we categorically take this stand? United Nations and independent international search teams reportedly stated that Iraq had no WMD which would remotely threaten the United States.
Just before the invasion began, Senator Robert Byrd arose to announce that this day was a very sad day for America and the international community, for we were invading a country on spurious grounds. Nearly two years after the invasion, President Bush's own investigative team admitted Saddam had possessed no WMD, and may have actually discontinued the program in late, 1991.
We posted two major articles on the subject of how President Bush and Defense Secretary Rumsfeld managed to deceive the American people so thoroughly. We encourage you to read them now, for they prove an intent to lie. They are:

OF IRAQ INVASION: NOW PROVEN TO BE LIES, DISTORTIONS, EXAGGERATIONS!"

Adolf Hitler summed the matter up perfectly when he said, "What luck for rulers that men do not think"
One of the propaganda reasons that rulers stir up blind patriotism is that such emotion renders normally discerning people into unthinking citizens, allowing their rulers to guide them wherever they want to lead them. And, it causes parents to give up their sons in battle in order to "protect us against enemies", even when the enemy was manufactured in the first place.
After it became painfully apparent that the United States was not going to find any WMD, and after official investigative committees announced that there was no proof of a Saddam - Osama terrorism tie, Cutting Edge wrote repeatedly that we hoped these twin revelations would at least render null and void the terrible notion of preemptive strikes on nations we "thought" posed a risk.
Such an aggressive policy requires both correct intelligence and intelligence honestly handled by government officials. In this case, CIA Director Tenet repeatedly stated that the bogus intelligence did not come from his organization -- a charge that was very true, as our articles, above demonstrate.
When government officials bend, twist, and even invent, intelligence to support their planned aggressive military actions, the world stands at real risk of triggering an all-out conflict. Sadly, the failed policy which allowed the president to falsely accuse Iraq and then "liberate" it, is now codified policy which has been greatly expanded.
Even more sadly is the reality that the rest of the international community will not strongly oppose this policy, because this is the End of the Age, where the rulers of the prophesied Ten Nations are secretly cooperating to achieve the final goal of staging Antichrist (NEWS1548).
---------Conclusion----------------"On mine arm shall they trust." Isaiah 51:5
In seasons of severe trial, the Christian has nothing on earth that he can trust to, and is therefore compelled to cast himself on his God alone. When his vessel is on its beam-ends, and no human deliverance can avail, he must simply and entirely trust himself to the providence and care of God. Happy storm that wrecks a man on such a rock as this! O blessed hurricane that drives the soul to God and God alone! There is no getting at our God sometimes because of the multitude of our friends; but when a man is so poor, so friendless, so helpless that he has nowhere else to turn, he flies into his Father's arms, and is blessedly clasped therein! When he is burdened with troubles so pressing and so peculiar, that he cannot tell them to any but his God, he may be thankful for them; for he will learn more of his Lord then than at any other time. Oh, tempest-tossed believer, it is a happy trouble that drives thee to thy Father! Now that thou hast only thy God to trust to, see that thou puttest thy full confidence in Him. Dishonour not thy Lord and Master by unworthy doubts and fears; but be strong in faith, giving glory to God.
Show the world that thy God is worth ten thousand worlds to thee. Show rich men how rich thou art in thy poverty when the Lord God is thy helper. Show the strong man how strong thou art in thy weakness when underneath thee are the everlasting arms. Now is the time for feats of faith and valiant exploits. Be strong and very courageous, and the Lord thy God shall certainly, as surely as He built the heavens and the earth, glorify Himself in thy weakness, and magnify his might in the midst of thy distress. The grandeur of the arch of heaven would be spoiled if the sky were supported by a single visible column, and your faith would lose its glory if it rested on anything discernible by the carnal eye. May the Holy Spirit give you to rest in Jesus this closing day of the month. [[C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions"]
May Jesus Richly Bless You,
David Bay, Director
