---------- Inspiration For the Week-------"The Christian's Morbid Fear of A Final Falling"
A dark fear haunts the minds of many who are coming to Christ; they are afraid that they shall not persevere to the end ... I believe that this fear is often the father of the fact, and that some who have been afraid to trust Christ for all time and for all eternity have failed because they had a temporary faith which never went far enough to save them. They set out trusting to Jesus in a measure, but looking to themselves for continuance, turned back before long. If we trust to ourselves for our holding on, we shall not hold on .. No chain is stronger than its weakest link ... They trusted to themselves for that running, and so they stopped short..."
"If you look to Christ for your beginning, beware of looking to yourself for your ending ... If you begin in the Spirit, you must not hope to be made perfect by the flesh ... Oh, that God the Holy Spirit may give us a very clear idea of where the strength must come from by which we shall be preserved until the day of our Lord's appearing ... Between this hour and the consummation of all things, every promise of God and every provision of the covenant of grace will be brought into requisition. The urgent need of the believing soul is confirmation, continuance, final perseverance, preservation to the end ... If you were not saints, you would have no grace, and you would feel no need of more grace; but because you are men of God ... you feel the daily demands of the spiritual life ... the living man hungers and thirsts and he rejoices that his bread and his water are guaranteed for him ... what could he do if he could not resort to his God?
"... if we did not receive fresh grace, where would we be? ... we could not live a single day without the divine life flowing into us from our covenant Head. How could we hold on for a single hour, to say nothing of a lifetime, unless the Lord should hold on to us? He who began the good work in us must perform it unto the day of Christ, or it will prove a painful failure ...
"... as long as we cannot escape from ourselves, we cannot escape from incitements to sin ... If He does not confirm us, we are so weak that we shall stumble and fall, not overturned by an enemy, but by our own carelessness ...
"O world of wonder, I can say no less. The days of a Christian's life are like so many Kohinoors of mercy threaded upon the golden string of divine faithfulness. In heaven, we shall tell angels and principalities and powers the unsearchable riches of Christ which were spent upon us and enjoyed by us while we were here below. We have been kept alive on the brink of death. Our spiritual life has been a flame burning on in the midst of the sea, a stone that has remained suspended in the air. It will amaze the universe to see us enter the pearly gate, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
"The world is a howling wilderness to many of God's people ... We begin our day with prayer and we hear the voice of holy song very often in our houses; but many good people have scarcely risen from the knees in the morning before they are saluted with blasphemy ... The world is no friend to grace. The best we can do with this world is to get through it as quickly as we can, for we dwell in an enemy's country ... Everywhere we need to travel with a 'drawn sword' in our hand, or at least with that weapon which is called 'all-prayer' ... for we have to contend for every inch of our way.
"True religion is supernatural at its beginning, supernatural in its continuance, and supernatural in its close. It is the work of God from first to last. There is great need that the hand of the Lord should be stretched out still ... now you will look for your own preservation to the Lord who alone is able to keep us from falling and glorify us with His Son." (C.H. Spurgeon, "All of Grace")
-----------"Purpose Driven" Seminar Report-------------
Last Saturday, May 21, Mac Dominick and I held our newest seminar on the Purpose-Driven Church phenomenon and we had a very lively group. One very important development flowed directly from this seminar; most people related very well to the combination of the book's statistics and the colored Power Point slides from the seminar. Therefore, we have redeveloped the book we are offering, as you can see from this picture, above. Mr. Dominick has reorganized the Power Point slide CDROM we have been offering, so that the slides would follow the presentation in the book. Therefore, when you read the book, you will be able to view the slides Mr. Dominick created to illustrate the statistics in his book!
Thus, you now have the best of both worlds: the book, which gives far more statistical data than any video could possibly offer, and the colored Power Point slides from the seminar, which make the statistics come alive -- remember, a picture is worth 1,000 words! Thus, we have revamped our book offer, to include the Power Point slides organized by chapter.
We are including this $14.99 CDROM absolutely FREE when you buy the book! This combination CDROM and Book retails for $34.98, but we are selling this combination for only $19.99, saving you $15 over buying them separately. Both CDROM and the original book will still be available separately.
Most people discovered that Mr. Dominick had researched the "Purpose Driven" church movement from a much wider and deeper position than any other author on the market. At the end of the seminar, a great many people went back to the table to buy multiple copies of the book and/or the seminar, to give to their pastor, their deacons, their elders and key people within their church. Most of these seminar participants who bought multiple copies were members of churches which were going "Purpose Driven"; however, you should not be complacent if your church is not yet heading in that direction -- give this material to your church leaders to prevent them from ever starting down this End of the Age ruinous road.
We believe in this concept of giving multiple copies to your church leaders so very much that, for the next 30 days, we shall give a 15% discount to anyone ordering 10 copies or more of this combination Book/CDROM -- this discount will save you $3.00 each over buying them separately! ("10 Copies - Book+Slides Purpose Driven = Outcome-Based Religion: Apostasy, Purpose, and the Paradigm Shift - With FREE CDROM Colored Power Point Seminar Slides Organized by Book Chapter")
As Mr. Dominick has proven: there is no genuine Salvation in the Purpose Driven program. Their Plan of Salvation leaves out recognition of sin, repentance of sin, and a personal understanding of Jesus' blood sacrifice. Pastors leading their flocks down this path are virtually guaranteeing that their trusting people will wake up at the White Throne Judgment to hear Jesus say to them, "Depart from Me ... I never knew you".
Is is possible that the situation can get any more serious?

Are big changes taking place in your church? Has the expository preaching of the Word of God been replaced by lectures in “Psychology 101?” Have the messages from the pulpit been so permeated with “tolerance” that sin is no longer identifiable? Has the emphasis of reaching the lost for Christ been replaced by the mantra bringing in the unchurched? Does the pastor use so many translations of the Bible that you are no longer sure what the Bible actually teaches? Have the hymnals been trashed in favor of the overhead projector? Has the choir been supplanted by a contemporary “praise band?” Has the direction of the Holy Spirit on the service been replaced by “40 Day” campaigns? Has your church mushroomed in size with throngs of people that have no idea of what they believe? If the answer to the majority of these questions is “yes,” your church is falling victim to Outcome-Based Religion.
Outcome-Based Religion is another manifestation of the 21st Century that is all about meeting the needs of the consumer with as little inconvenience as possible. It is no secret that we have become a “Super Walmart Society” that flocks to the mega-store, the mega-mall and yes, even the mega-church. Church growth has become the order of the day within broad-based protestantism, evangelicalism, and even fundamentalism with the catch-phrases like “seeker-sensitive,” “seeker-friendly,” and “purpose-driven” becoming household terms among conservative religious individuals.
Unfortunately, the developers of the methods and practices currently implemented to build this New Paradigm Church have not considered the Word of God as a valid source document in the developmental process. In lieu of an operational system built upon God’s absolute truth, they have chosen a strange mixture of behavioral science, marketing techniques, “Management by Objective”, General Systems Theory, New Age doctrine, and Mother Goddess concepts, bathed in Christian religious terminology to concoct a program for aggressive church growth.
This book gives the reader the vital information needed to identify the warning signs needed to stand in defense of the Faith in the face of this gathering storm of apostasy. It should be required reading for all pastors and lay people who desire to understand the deceptive nature of this apostasy, and particularly those who are battling this movement within their own church. Finally, this book exposes the very real danger that if this movement continues unchecked, there may well arise a new generation that “knows not the Lord.”

Your pastor, deacons, elders and key leaders in your church, need to have this dramatic proof that there is no personal salvation possible in the Purpose Driven prayer of salvation. Such church leaders need to know that the movement to which they are committing their people comes straight out of the New Age Movement and Goddess Worship!

Americans need to snap out of "Bush's Mythology Bubble"! Americans need to take a good, hard look at what is really occurring in this country under President Bush's leadership. This Christian, Conservative Republican honestly looked at these matters, and was shocked by what he saw.
"Our Government has misled Americans, lulled them to sleep with our Mass Media, and confused them with lies and the "white noise" we see and hear every single day. You, too, need to question the Bush Mythology. This book will explain to you why you should question every move Bush makes, to understand how really bad they are. I am a Christian Conservative Republican, and this book is my record as to why I cannot any longer support the Bush Administration." Karl Schwarz -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1054

Freemasonry has always been at war with the genuine Christian Church; now, the urgency of understanding this fact is heightened by the reality that many governing positions in today's Evangelical churches are filled with practicing Masons! Quite possibly your pastor is a Mason!
Lodge members emphatically deny that Freemasonry is a religion; however, it must be considered a religious group IF : 1) Meets on a regular basis 2) Uses alters; 3) Prays to deity; 4) Holds rituals; 5) Baptizes; 6) Meets in temples; 7) Has deacons; 8) Serves communion; 9) Operates according to generally agreed-upon doctrine; 10) Teaches path to Heaven after this life.
How much of Freemasonry has infiltrated our churches? Why are Masons allowed to retain their positions of leadership in our churches? Why is Freemasonry incorrectly touted as a harmless fraternal organization when its very roots are steep in the soil of mysticism, magic, and murder? We must take back our churches from these rank occult unbelievers masquerading as genuine Christians. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1048
This valuable book proves beyond all doubt that a tight tie exists between Freemasonry and Satanism. This author examines the rituals, doctrines, and literature of Freemasonry, comparing it to identical literature in both Satanism and Ancient Egyptian Mysteries. Since Masonic leaders -- like Albert Pike -- admit that Freemasonry is IDENTICAL to the Egyptian Mysteries, this line of study is absolutely critical. The Egyptian Mysteries is the original headwaters for both Satanism and Freemasonry.
After studying this material, you will see how it is possible for Masonic organizations to always have the right leadership in place at just the right time in history, in order to achieve just the right event necessary to move the world closer to the appearance of Antichrist.
Strong material is also presented which ties Freemasonry into Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA). If you have been troubled by SRA in your background, or if you know someone who has SRA in their background, this material should be of great assistance.

* "The Light Behind Masonry Video" -- By Former Satanist Bill Schnoebelen
An incredible 3 1/2 hour video that covers Masonry like none other! Former Witch and Mason, Bill Schnoebelen, talks of the following subjects: Demolay, Scottish Rite, York Rite, Shriners, Eastern Star, current symbolism, links to the Satanic Egyptian Mysteries, and the 12 steps to get out of the Masonic Lodge. These steps are mostly spiritual, but does include a letter of demit to officially get out of the Lodge.
Also get book, "Masonry: Beyond The Light" How can a true Born Again Christian, who has accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior, the Light of the World as the Bible calls him, go into a Masonic initiation ritual and declare that he is in darkness and searching for light? Yet, this is exactly what a person does during the first three rituals of Masonry. Bill thoroughly explores the true spiritual "light" behind Masonry.

---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------Quote of the Week to Remember:
"Their script is now written, subject only to last minute editing and stage-directions. The stage itself, albeit as yet in darkness, is almost ready... The last-minute, walk-on parts are even now being filled. Most of the main actors...have already taken up their roles. Soon it will be time for them to come on stage, ready for the curtain to rise. The time for action will have come." (From "The Armageddon Script", by Peter LeMesurier, St. Martin's Press, 1982, New York, N.Y., p. 252.)
I. North Korea leveled the most shocking announcement possible in this planned nuclear confrontation: they pledged that they are willing to strike America with nuclear weapons in a unilateral First Strike! Can you see the outlines of this second war in the World War III scenario beginning to take shape? Listen first to The Plan:
"A hair-raising nuclear confrontation in Korea may, towards the end of the period, threaten man's very survival." [Peter Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script", p. 223]
Therefore, just the fact that we are seeing increasingly harsh rhetoric about nuclear war between North Korea and America, and just the fact that we see American military units maneuvering into place, tells us that mankind is nearing the "end of the period". Now, let us review the pertinent news stories.
NEWS BRIEF: "Pyongyang threatens pre-emptive strike against US", Taipei Times, May 25, 2005
"North Korea yesterday threatened to employ a pre-emptive attack ... The North poured out anti-US rhetoric ... claiming that Washington's 'hostile policies' led it to develop nuclear weapons as a deterrent, and warning against any attack to dislodge its leadership. 'The United States should be aware that the choice of a pre-emptive attack is not only theirs', the North's official news agency quoted the Cabinet newspaper Minju Joson as saying. 'To stand against force with force is our unswerving method of response'."
Ever since the United States' attack against Iraq, North Korea has maintained that President Bush only attacked Saddam once the United Nations' arms inspectors had verified that the dictator possessed no Weapons of Mass Destruction. Therefore, North Korean leaders concluded that, had Saddam really possessed WMD, Bush would not have dared attack.
For this reason, North Korean leadership has consistently stated publicly that they firmly intended to continue developing nuclear warheads and the missiles which would deliver them. Of course, Cutting Edge revealed years ago that North Korea has possessed nuclear warheads for many years and already has the Stage-3 ballistic missiles which would deliver them to the East Coast (NEWS1780).
However, as this quote, from "The Armageddon Script" above, reveals, the global plan for World War III calls for a most severe and frightening nuclear confrontation on the Korean Peninsula. Therefore, what we are witnessing in our Daily News is simply theater -- the actors and actresses playing out pre-written lines of script! Keep this thought in mind as we continue reviewing our current news story.
"Washington is awaiting a response to an overture it made May 13 -- days after the North announced it had removed fuel rods from a reactor, a possible step toward extracting weapons-grade plutonium ... North Korea on Tuesday repeated claims that its nuclear weapons protect regional peace. 'It is in the East Asian region, including the Korean Peninsula, where the US moves for vicious attacks and war ... are carried out most seriously', the Minju Joson said. 'It is our nuclear deterrent that basically guarantees peace and stability'." (Ibid.)
News stories continue to come out that North Korea is planning a public test to demonstrate their nuclear capability.
NEWS BRIEF: "Fallout from test would be troubling for everyone", Taipei Times, May 25, 2005
"A nuclear weapons test by North Korea would reverberate around the world, altering the nuclear balance in Asia and posing stark new challenges for US policy-makers and military planners. It could also induce China, Russia and other powers to join the US in seeking UN-approved penalties against the hard-line communist country..."
Please remember that China and Russia will join the United States against North Korea only if the plan calls for that to occur. China and Russia have both known for a very long time that North Korea possesses nuclear warheads, and Russia has been particularly effective in enabling the Koreans to achieve ballistic missile capability, which not only requires Russian propulsion systems, but Russian satellites to guide them to targets 10,000 miles away. Therefore, the Russians are up to their elbows in support of the North Korean nuclear delivery system. For this reason, if you hear Russia join the United States to oppose North Korea should they actually explode a nuclear device, you can rest assured that you are witnessing the public outworking of a very private script!
Now, let us return to our feature article:
"With US officials increasingly concerned that North Korea may conduct a test soon, how would Washington respond? First, the Bush administration probably would try to involve the UN. Less clear is whether US President George W. Bush would consider a risky military strike -- given North Korean leader Kim Jong-il's million-man army, heavy conventional weaponry and perhaps several nuclear weapons ... Meanwhile, North Korea has indicated a willingness to return to the bargaining table but said it is waiting for Washington to clarify conflicting statements on US policy."
"US officials want China to exert more pressure on its longtime ally. China says bullying rhetoric by the US makes it harder to coax the North Koreans back to the negotiating table. 'The potential downside of a test is enormous', said Kurt Campbell, former assistant secretary of defense for Asia in the Clinton administration. 'It would set off a chain reaction in the region with completely impossible-to-predict consequences'. It could even lead South Korea and Japan to rethink their policy against nuclear arsenals..."
If North Korea does explode a nuclear device to prove she does have the bomb, how does this process get to the place planned by the Illuminati, i.e., "threaten man's very survival"?
Several events would have to accompany or follow a public nuclear weapons test:
1. North Korea would have to demonstrate that she possesses more than just one or two or six nuclear devices. The explosion of just one device does not an arsenal make. During the closing days of World War II, the United States followed up her nuclear devastation of Hiroshima with another devastation of Nagasaki, simply to demonstrate to the Japanese that we had more than one device; our intelligence knew that the Japanese believed that, since the process to enrich uranium for a nuclear device was so expensive and so difficult that the Americans could not have any more than one device. By destroying Nagasaki, we proved to the Japanese that we had more than one, and if we had more than one, we might have many more. The Japanese quickly surrendered.
2. North Korea would have to demonstrate her capability to deliver her nuclear warheads to both the East and West Coasts of the United States.
As these requirements work themselves out, the world would quickly reach the point envisioned above: threatening mankind's very survival.
The United States continued moving military units into position for war with North Korea.
NEWS BRIEF: "Holloman Air Force Base Sends More F-117 Stealths To S Korea", rense.com, 5-26-5
"ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - Fifteen F 117A Nighthawk stealth fighters are leaving Holloman Air Force Base this week for South Korea. The 49th Fighter Wing announced the deployment of about 250 airmen and the stealths Monday. About two dozen stealths and 300 airmen were deployed from Holloman to Kunsan Air Base in South Korea last summer ... The deployment comes as North Korea threatens a nuclear weapons test."
If you see a North Korean nuclear warhead exploded in the atmosphere, you may rest assured that the "end of the period" is very close. What "period" is in view here? The preparatory period leading up to the Final Birth Pangs War which will allow Antichrist to appear. This week's news contained no reference to the month of June as the time North Korea might explode her nuclear device.
II. Iran seemed to back away from their confrontation with the West, when they announced that they were giving up the right to enrich uranium for any purpose whatsoever. The E.U. had long sought an agreement to provide Iran with the enriched fuel she needs to operate her nuclear power plants, so she would not have to enrich the fuel herself -- this plan would prevent Iran from developing new nuclear warheads.
The question is: will this development satisfy President Bush and stave off an American attack, or is an attack inevitable, given our movement of material already to the region?
NEWS BRIEF: "Iran
backtracks on pledge to restart nuclear enrichment activities: Means that
has Iran conceded that it does not have a right to such an industrial enrichment
process", Arabic News, 5/26/2005
"Iran in its meetings with the Europeans yesterday has backtracked from many statements it made recently assuring that would restart Uranium enrichment for its peaceful energy needs ... Iran had repeatedly asserted that will start the enrichment process within 'days' since this was its undisputable right under the NPT treaty ... it would mean, in effect, that Iran has conceded that it does not have a right to such an industrial enrichment process. The US is seeking to prevent and delay Iran acquiring such capabilities ... It is not clear if by accepting such delays, Iran has defacto given legitimacy to the US and European basis of the negotiations, which is that Uranium enrichment by Iran is subject to negotiations, and is not a right that Iran has."
As we have noted in past newsletters, Iran is following a deliberate policy of contradictory statements. On the one hand, her leaders insist that Iran possesses the inherent right to pursue a peaceful nuclear power plant policy, even if that means that she will have to enrich uranium - giving her the capability of making her own nuclear warheads should she decide to do so.
But, then Iran would turn around to announce that she would not pursue enriched uranium. And, then, she would announce that she is capable of defending herself against any attack, seemingly poking George Bush in the rhetorical eye.
Such a confusing process has been used by many countries over the years when they are trying to diplomatically buy themselves more time to pursue an agenda they are trying to keep hidden. Such may be the case with Iran, even though she has possessed nuclear weapons since 2002 .
The key element to remember in all this hoopla is that our controversy with Iran is also scripted. President Bush, President Putin, Iranian leaders, and the North Korean leadership are all just actors on a global stage, reading lines given them -- just as the above quote from "The Armageddon Script" proves.
No mention was made in this week's news about a possible American attack on Iran in June.
III. No sooner had Newsweek retracted her story that American interrogators at Guantanamo Bay Prison had flushed the Koran down the toilet, than Mainline Press began to run multiple stories that this incident probably happened after all! America's planned, systematic attack on the religious sensibilities unique to Muslims thus continues to come to the forefront.
NEWS BRIEF: "A story that wasn’t true actually tells a true story", by Tom Plate, Khaleej Times, 19 May 2005
"THE embarrassing Newsweek climb-down on the Quran story is surely one
for the annals of journalistic screw-ups ... for a respectful period, the
magazine in general should hang its head in shame. But something serious is
being lost in the crusade to quarantine Newsweek.
It’s that the story (which may still prove to have taken place) was in fact all-too believable in Newsweek’s offices and around the world — precisely because of the oft-crude manner in which the administration in Washington has been waging its 'war against terror'."
"This war has been at times conducted as if Muslims and Arabs weren’t people, as if when they are imprisoned they definitely aren’t 'real people' ..."
"The Newsweek story said that Muslim prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had been humiliated by having to watch as a copy of the Quran flushed down a toilet. It turns out that Newsweek relied on but one source, and when that source a Pentagon official changed his story (because he had been lying? Been misinformed? Been pressured by higher-ups in the Pentagon to repudiate his story?), the Newsweek exclusive collapsed like a house of cards in a desert sandstorm ... it was a serious error to go public with a story like this on the basis of a sole source."
Did you catch that bit of information? Newsweek retracted the story because its one source was a Pentagon official who might have recanted his information simply because he was in danger of losing his job. Once Newsweek recanted the story because their single source had turned tail to run, the White House propaganda machine began to trumpet that Newsweek was wrong with the facts of the case. As a matter of fact, some mainline news sources ran the story that American interrogators most certainly did not flush the Koran down the toilet! The most American officials would admit to is "Koran mishandling"!
Before we go to our next related story, let us return to this featured article for more information.
"... the print story surfaced in this magazine against the backdrop of those awful pictures of Arab and Muslim prisoners being humiliated, violated and de-humanised by their American captors at Abu Gharib in Iraq. Without those pictures — and other tales of abuse — the Quran story would never have been published without far more extensive fact-checking, and surely not on the basis of a single source ... had this war, notably in the US treatment and interrogation of war criminals or enemy combatants (whatever we call them, they are still people), been waged by the US on a higher humanitarian level, Newsweek would have had a different kind of story .. much of the Muslim and Arabic world has already been traumatized by the American intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq, been repulsed and angered by pictures of prisoner abuse, and had its suspicions of American cultural disrespect confirmed by the likes of General William Boykin. General Boykin, a top Pentagon official and a key figure in the US war on terror, in public speeches has unfavourably compared Islam to Christianity--- and he still has his job ... Newsweek’s little sin is thus nothing compared to this administration’s much greater sins."
As we have stated earlier in our many "Blood In The Streets" articles, the abuses -- both torture and sexual humiliation -- which our forces have wreaked upon Muslim prisoners were carefully calculated to offend the sensibilities unique to followers of Islam. We have forced the world to the brink of all-out war with 1.4 billion Muslims, an outcome which any junior high school student could have foreseen. When the Middle East does explode into war, you can thank this scandal for preparing the hearts and minds of the Muslim people to hate everything Western - American - Israeli.
No sooner had Newsweek retracted its story than other sources began to report that this kind of abuse was occurring after all!
NEWS BRIEF: "Red Cross raised Guantanamo Koran abuse concerns", Reuters, May 20, 2005
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The International Committee of the Red Cross told the Pentagon as early as 2002 detainees at Guantanamo Bay prison had reported U.S. personnel mishandled the Koran, Red Cross and U.S. officials said on Thursday. The acknowledgment of the documentation of alleged abuse of the Koran came as Washington sought to defuse anger in the Muslim world after Newsweek reported the Muslim holy book was flushed down the toilet at the Guantanamo prison ... The International Committee of the Red Cross told the Pentagon 'multiple' times in 2002 and early 2003 prisoners at the base in Cuba alleged U.S. officials showed 'disrespect' for the Muslim holy book, said Simon Schorno, an ICRC spokesman."
Even though this story noted that the government had taken corrective measures, the reality is that the Newsweek story was essentially correct: American interrogators had abused the Koran -- "multiple times in 2002 and 2003". Since this is true, President Bush was either badly misinformed or he lied when he denied the story.
The next story is an editorial from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and it shows that one columnist really does understand this sorry situation.
NEWS BRIEF: "Flushing away the truth: Enduring several days of fevered accusations of journalistic hackery from Bush administration lap dogs", By Tony Norman, Post-Gazette, May 27, 2005
"Newly released documents show that detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, complained repeatedly to FBI agents about disrespectful handling of the Quran by soldiers, and, in one case in 2002, said that guards had flushed a Quran down a toilet. The prisoners' accounts are described by the agents in detailed summaries of interrogations at Guantanamo in 2002 and 2003. The documents were among more than 300 pages turned over by the FBI to the American Civil Liberties Union in recent days and publicly disclosed yesterday."
Now, we not only have the word of the International Red Cross, but the words of the American FBI that guards did flush a Koran down a toilet! The President and his White House staff are beginning to look mighty foolish and downright deceptive! But, there is more:
"After enduring several days of fevered accusations of journalistic hackery from Bush administration lap dogs, Newsweek fell on its sword, retracted the story and tightened its multiple source rule ... But as Lady Irony would have it, vindication for Newsweek's original story may not be as far off as chief White House smoke- blower Scott McClellan would have us believe. Old and new allegations of holy book abuse by American interrogators are beginning to spring up in mainstream newspapers like opium poppies in Afghanistan ... While wise guys at Fox News and CNBC were smirking about how many flushes it would take to get the Quran down a toilet -- thus proving to their viewers that the story is obviously bogus -- L.A. Times reporters Richard Serrano and John Daniszewski were examining government documents, court records and interviewing everyone with knowledge of the allegations, from lawyers to detainees. But until a digital photo of a guard dog carrying a Quran in its mouth turns up on the front page of the New York Post, McClellan will continue telling skeptics and 'Bush haters' how ridiculous it is to imagine that anything less than respectful treatment of 'terrorist' suspects takes place under American auspices at all times."
Unfortunately, too many American citizens are too willing to swallow everything the major news networks publicize, taking their words of propaganda as the "Gospel Truth". As long as this sorry situation continues, it is going to be very difficult to wake very many people up as to the truth of a great many things, beginning with our Presidency.
"Earlier this week, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, a man whose moral clarity is legendary, put his finger on the problem when he insisted the military had to aggressively counteract 'anti-American lies' spread by the media and 'a global Internet with universal access and no inhibitions, e-mail, cell phones, digital cameras wielded by anyone and everyone' and a 'casual disregard for the protection of classified information . . . to the detriment of the country'. According to Rummy, the real problem is our right to know what this war is costing in terms of lives, treasure and moral idiocies committed in our name." (Ibid.)
Our Defense Secretary is certainly right on one issue: spreading the truth globally is certainly working to the detriment of the Bush Administration as it seeks to contain its enormous body of lies. When we posted this story covering Rumsfeld's remarks, we took it for what it was: a blatant attack on press freedoms and a not-too-subtle threat to shut down sites like Cutting Edge Ministries. That time is coming, for the handwriting is on the wall. However, that day will not come unless the Holy Spirit is finished with this ministry. Please pray earnestly for us.
DVD - VHS IV. Countries "fighting the war on terror" have gotten very brutal in their treatment of prisoners, and the Bush Administration is leading the way! How can a christian President employ tactics which flow from the Communist philosophy that the "Ends Justify the Means"?
NEWS BRIEF: "Amnesty Takes Aim at 'Gulag' in Guantanamo", The Washington Post, May 25, 2005
"LONDON -- Amnesty International castigated the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay as a failure Wednesday, calling it "the gulag of our time" in the human rights group's harshest rebuke yet of American detention policies. Amnesty urged Washington to shut down the prison at the U.S. Navy's base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba ... Some have been jailed for more than three years without charge ... In its annual report, Amnesty accused governments around the world of abandoning human rights protections. It said Sudan failed to protect its people from one of the world's worst humanitarian crises and charged Haiti promoted human rights abusers.
"But one of the biggest disappointments in the human rights arena was with the United States, Amnesty said, "after evidence came to light that the U.S. administration had sanctioned interrogation techniques that violated the U.N. Convention against Torture. Guantanamo has become the gulag of our time', Amnesty Secretary General Irene Khan said as the London-based group issued a 308-page annual report that accused the United States of shirking its responsibility to set the bar for human rights protections.
"Amnesty has frequently criticized U.S. detention policies instituted after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, but its latest report takes a harsher tone. It accuses Washington of trying to 'sanitize' abuse of detainees and failing to give prisoners legal recourse to challenge their detentions. The report also takes aim at recent abuse allegations that have surfaced in FBI documents as well as prisoner testimonies, echoing concerns from the International Committee of the Red Cross."
As Khaleej Times notes above, in their editorial, it is easier to believe the worst about charges against the Bush Administration because of the pictures of torture and sexual humiliation against Muslim prisoners which have circulated the globe many times over during the past year since the scandal of Abu Ghraib first became public. Further, it is easier to believe the worst when the Bush Administration gets caught lying boldly, as it was caught with their denial that American interrogators had ever flushed a Koran down the toilet.
In fact, Cutting Edge has been warning since November, 2001 -- just weeks after the 9/11 attacks -- that the Bush Administration was torturing prisoners against whom no charges had been filed. Such stories have occurred regularly since that time. This news will not be any surprise to long-term Cutting Edge readers and subscribers.
I find it very interesting that Amnesty International is making these charges, for most conservatives know the left-leaning nature of this group and will immediately dismiss their charges as fraudulent. In much the same manner, the major American organization complaining loudly about our loss of Constitutional protections and eventually our liberties inherent in such measures as the "Patriot Act" has been the American Civil Liberties Union.
It is a stroke of propaganda genius to have these leftist organizations attack President Bush, for his many supporters will automatically -- without thinking or doing any research -- reject these charges. However, groups like the International Red Cross carry much more credibility. Do not be surprised if, one day, criminal charges are filed against President Bush and members of his Cabinet in the International Criminal Court -- charges which will stick. A few weeks ago, a British military official privately worried that English officers and men might one day face criminal charges for their conduct in Iraq. We might yet see this occur against American officials -- thus building up the International Criminal Court and setting the precedent that American sovereignty is now subservient to that of the world body.
That is the ultimate plan.
Now, let us examine the possibility that the torture and sexual humiliation of prisoners as seen at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib were really conceived in Texas prisons under Governor George W. Bush!
NEWS BRIEF: "Torture, Inc - America's Brutal Prisons - "Does such barbaric abuse inside U.S. jails explain the horrors that were committed in Iraq?", By Deborah Davies, Global Research.ca, rense.com, 5/25/2005
"They are just some of the victims of wholesale torture taking place inside the U.S. prison system that we uncovered during a four-month investigation for BBC Channel 4 . It's terrible to watch some of the videos and realise that you're not only seeing torture in action but, in the most extreme cases, you are witnessing young men dying. The prison guards stand over their captives with electric cattle prods, stun guns, and dogs. Many of the prisoners have been ordered to strip naked. The guards are yelling abuse at them, ordering them to lie on the ground and crawl. 'Crawl, m**********s, crawl.'
"If a prisoner doesn't drop to the ground fast enough, a guard kicks him or stamps on his back. There's a high-pitched scream from one man as a dog clamps its teeth onto his lower leg. Another prisoner has a broken ankle. He can't crawl fast enough so a guard jabs a stun gun onto his buttocks. The jolt of electricity zaps through his naked flesh and genitals. For hours afterwards his whole body shakes. Lines of men are now slithering across the floor of the cellblock while the guards stand over them shouting, prodding and kicking.
"The images of abuse and brutality he records are horrifyingly familiar. These were exactly the kind of pictures from inside Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad that shocked the world this time last year ... But there is a difference. These prisoners are not caught up in a war zone. They are Americans, and the video comes from inside a prison in Texas. They are just some of the victims of wholesale torture taking place inside the U.S. prison system that we uncovered during a four-month investigation for Channel 4 that will be broadcast next week ... the Texas episode outlined above dates from 1996, when Bush was state Governor."
The stories of torture which we reported, beginning just weeks after 9/11, are becoming all too believable. And, they are being forced upon us by our elected officials who have sworn an oath to "protect and defend the Constitution", a document which outlaws this kind of prisoner treatment! Since George W. claimed that he became a Christian in 1988, that would make his leadership in this scandal totally inconsistent with his religious claims! One more evil spiritual fruit!
But, most undiscerning Christians will sleep right along!
V. As the new Western oil pipeline in the Middle East opened last week, people are asking anew whether the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were fought just over access to cheap oil.
NEWS BRIEF: "IS NEW PIPELINE THE ROUTE OF OIL EVIL? Pipe blamed for war is open", by Vanessa Allen, Mirror News, UK, 26 May 2005
NEWS BRIEF: "THE massive oil pipeline hailed as the real reason for America's war on terror was opened for business yesterday. The first section of the US-backed 1,090-mile pipeline began carrying oil from the Caspian Sea to the West. It will eventually deliver a million barrels of crude a day across one of the most dangerous regions on earth ... its critics say it was the real reason for America's willingness to invade Afghanistan and Iraq. They say the US used its much-vaunted war on terror as justification for establishing military bases along much of the pipeline route. The pipe - a prime target for terrorism - is so big it will take 10 million barrels of crude to fill it."
One of the major charges against President Bush's Iraqi and Afghanistan by the movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" (Michael Moore) was that the President invaded these countries mainly because of the greed for oil revenues by the Bush family. Moore showed interesting connections between the Bush family members and princes from Saudi Arabia. Moore even showed the planned route of this pipeline. This story then tells of the route this pipeline is taking:
"It was officially opened in the central Asian republic of Azerbaijan yesterday and provides the first direct link between the landlocked Caspian - thought to contain the world's third- largest oil and gas reserves - and the Mediterranean. It was built by a consortium led by British Petroleum and will take until August to fill completely. Then it will carry one per cent of the world's oil production every day ... The pipeline's route from Azerbaijan through Georgia and Turkey takes it close to war-torn Chechnya. It then travels through south-eastern Turkey, where Kurdish separatists are waging a bloody insurgency." (Ibid.)
The whole world finds it very easy to believe that President Bush is in the Middle East because he is greedy for oil monies.
And, the President has taken actions which ensure that many people will believe this story with all their hearts. A British Minister of Knesset recently made this same
"Writing in the Daily Mirror in October 2001, foreign correspondent John Pilger warned that the US was using its war on terror as a thinly-veiled justification for setting up military bases across central Asia. He wrote: 'Bush's concealed agenda is to exploit the oil and gas reserves in the Caspian basin, the greatest source of untapped fossil fuel on earth'."
However, remembering the propaganda maxim that the truth of a matter is often found in exactly the opposite direction of the public rhetoric, and remembering the research I have done regarding the Illuminati long-term plan after their Masonic Christ completes his seven-year "cleansing cycle of the earth", we know for certain that these stories of oil greed are false in their ultimate conclusions.
You see, even though the Illuminati wants to make a lot of money on their way to produce Antichrist, their major goal is to produce him -- not gain control over more oil. Once their Masonic Christ arises, the Illuminati will have all the oil, and silver, and coal, and lumber, and all the world's resources. As they gain control over all the earth, they do not want to discover that the world is running out of these basic ingredients.
Therefore, their plan is to completely shut off the Industrial Civilization which gulps so many of these non-renewable resources! That is the truth, and we cover it in detail in NEWS1658 -- "Debunking The Myth That Illuminist Governments Are In The Middle East Today Just Because of 'Big Oil' Interests".
These kinds of stories are just propaganda equivalents of the old "shell game" at the carnival. Slick "sleight of hand" tricks causes your mind to focus on the wrong shell, while another shell hides the true treasure. If people are satisfied with the theory that Bush & Company are waging war in the Middle East simply to gain control over more oil, they will not look any further for the real truth.
Remember Adolf Hitler's words of wisdom: "Truth is not what is; truth is what people believe it to be".
VI. After 3 1/2 years of war in Afghanistan, has America reached the point of abject failure? The British government is preparing to rush 5,500 extra troops in order to stave off civil war!
NEWS BRIEF: "Secret UK troops plan for Afghan crisis", by Brian Brady, The Scotsman, 22 May 2005
"DEFENCE chiefs are planning to rush thousands of British troops to Afghanistan in a bid to stop the country sliding towards civil war ... Ministers have been warned they face a 'complete strategic failure' of the effort to rebuild Afghanistan and that 5,500 extra troops will be needed within months if the situation continues to deteriorate. An explosive cocktail of feuding tribal warlords, insurgents, the remnants of the Taliban, and under-performing Afghan institutions has left the fledgling democracy on the verge of disintegration ... The looming crisis in Afghanistan is a serious setback for the US-led 'War on Terror' and its bid to promote western democratic values around the world.
"Defence analysts say UK forces are already so over-stretched that any operation to restore order in Afghanistan can only succeed if substantial numbers of troops are redeployed from Iraq, itself in the grip of insurgency ... Planners at the UK military's Northolt headquarters have drawn up emergency proposals to send up to 5,500 troops to Afghanistan to help avert a descent into more widespread bloodshed. As well as increasing the British presence in Afghanistan 10-fold, it would require additional funding of almost £500m. MoD sources confirmed last night that the secret plans have been firmed up in response to persistent concerns that the notorious rebel commander Gulbadeen Hikmatyar has teamed up with Taliban fighters in the south."
What is wrong with this picture?
American authorities have been bragging for many months now that the "democracy" being practiced by the newly "elected" Afghanistan government is the kind of democracy we want throughout the entire Middle East. Just last week, the new Afghan president met President Bush at the White House to sign a host of agreements, chief of which is to allow a very large American presence in his country for a very long time; that military presence will include a very large American military base.
But, now we discover that troops are stretched so thin, and the hated Taliban insurgency is gaining such strength, that a "complete strategic failure" of the Coalition effort in Afghanistan since October, 2001, is not only possible, but probable -- unless a lot more soldiers are sent in!
Is it possible we shall soon be hearing the same rhetoric about Iraq?
We have long believed that the reason President Bush invaded Iraq with one-half the numbers of troops the Army Chief of Staff said we needed was simply to create a plausible continuous war scenario which would allow forces to fatally pollute the land and the people with deadly levels of Depleted Uranium. Whatever the reason, our conventional forces are not getting the job done -- not in Afghanistan and not in Iraq.
VII. As Israeli Prime Minister Sharon and Palestinian President Abbas appear on American soil during the same week, events for withdrawal seem to be picking up steam rapidly. Remember, Israel is the key to determining how much time the world has before the Final Birth Pangs War (World War III) begins. Developments on the Korean Peninsula, or with Iran, or with China invading Taiwan, or with renewed terror attacks in our cities, will not occur until Israel is close to completing her planned separation of Jewish population from the Palestinian (NEWS1422).
With this thought in mind, let us review this week's developments.
Just as disengagement foes seemingly had Prime Minister Sharon on the run because he could not contend with sheer numbers of protestors, the settlers of Gush Katif presented the government with a wonderful present! About 1,000 families are going to leave voluntarily, without even the semblance of a fight!
NEWS BRIEF: "1,000 Families in Gush Katif: All for One, One for All", Israel National News, May 25, 2005
"Some 1,000 families scheduled for expulsion/disengagement say they will continue to fight the plan, 'but if it is decreed that we are to be expelled, we demand to live together in one place'. In a letter that was publicized today, the residents write, "We fervently object to this illegal and terrible uprooting from our homes in Gush Katif and northern Shomron. We believe that it is our right to protect our homes in order that they not be taken from us. If the government uproots us using the force of the army and the police, it is our intention to be 'all for one.' We will not suffice with solutions for some of the residents. We will not rest and we will not be silent until a solution is found for everyone. We wish to move in unity, and not amidst division."
"The letter elaborated: 'If, Heaven forbid, the uprooting occurs, we want to relocate together... There must be enough new communities to meet the needs of all the sectors. We understand that the Nitzanim area [north of Ashkelon] is the most appropriate area for the relocation, and we ask you [Gaza Coast Regional Council chief Avner Shimoni] to act to ensure that if the solution is to be in Nitzanim, it should be afforded to all the communities... 'In any event, there must not be a double uprooting [from a temporary caravan site to permanent homes elsewhere at a future date], but that our temporary structures be placed on the site on which our permanent homes will be built'."
Just like that, 1,000 families have agreed to leave their homes without the terrible fight for which the Sharon government had been dreading. If the average Jewish family numbers 4, then 4,000 out of the 8,500 families have just agreed to walk out of their communities without a fight, as long as the government has a new place ready for them to permanently move into. The Sharon government has just seen its difficulties decrease by a solid 50%!
Perhaps the schedule of getting the Jewish population separated from the Palestinian by year's end is possible after all!
Prime Minister Sharon and Palestinian Prime Minister Abbas were on American soil meeting key leaders at the very same time! Coincidence?
Prime Minister Sharon was in New York City meeting with AIPAC, a prominent Jewish advocacy group comprised primarily of American Jewish leaders.
NEWS BRIEF: "AIPAC Fooled by Sharon?", Israel National News, May 27, 2005
"When PM Sharon told AIPAC this week, 'Population centers in [Yesha] will remain an integral part of Israel and be contiguous to Israel in any final status agreement', what exactly did he mean? Mr. Sharon's audience of 5,000 cheered this statement, as well as others he made in his speech. But he was being purposefully vague. The Prime Minister told the Makor Rishon weekly last month that he has purposely not determined which settlement blocs he thinks Israel must retain ... In addition, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice said nearly four months ago that disengagement from Gush Katif and northern Shomron is a welcome move - but only as a first step towards a full-fledged contiguous PLO state. Sharon is known to be almost perfectly in sync with the Bush-Rice positions on the Road Map plan and final-status negotiations, and has often said that Israeli policy would be coordinated with US policy."
This information will come as a shock to many people who have not understood the plan from the beginning. This withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and portions of the West Bank is only the beginning as the United States aids Israel in completely rewarding Palestinian terror by giving them a contiguous state. This was the plan from the beginning, as we detail in NEWS1911 -- "Proofs of a Conspiracy: Oslo Accords Were Originally Designed In 1993 To Give Large Chunks of Israel To The Palestinians -- Exactly As 'Hard-liner' Sharon Is Leading Them!"
Palestinian President Abbas was in Washington, D.C., meeting with President Bush.
NEWS BRIEF: "Palestinian Leader Praised by Bush, Gets the Support He Needs", AP Breaking News, May 27, 2005
"WASHINGTON (AP) - Palestinian leaders came to the U.S. capital seeking
political and economic support. After meeting with President Bush, they got
Praising Mahmoud Abbas, the recently elected president of the Palestinian Authority, as a man who believes in peace and democracy, Bush gave the Mideast peace process a boost and pledged to help make the dream of Palestinian statehood a reality ...
" 'We meet at a time when a great achievement of history is within reach, the creation of a peaceful, democratic Palestinian state', Bush told reporters Thursday as he stood next to Abbas in the White House Rose Garden. 'You have made a new start on a difficult journey, requiring courage and leadership each day. And we will take that journey together," the president said to Abbas, successor to the late Yasser Arafat, who never received an invitation to the Bush White House. Bush announced that the United States would give $50 million in direct aid to the Palestinian Authority for housing and infrastructure projects designed to improve the lives of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip once Israel withdraws this summer."
For all the hoopla surrounding the creation of a Palestinian State, I will be very surprised if one really develops, really takes hold. Oh, such a state will be proclaimed, but Bible prophecy seems to forbid that a permanent state will ever be allowed. Listen:
"They shall call its nobles to proclaim the kingdom, but nothing shall be there, and all its princes shall be no more." [Isaiah 34:12]
All of Isaiah 34 is a statement of judgment against the kingdom of Edom, also known as the "House of Esau" [Amplified Bible Commentary, p. 788]. Thus, this judgment is a parallel to Obadiah 15-18, a most sobering prophecy with which we have dealt repeatedly. If you have not read our previous articles on God's judgment against the "House of Esau" (Palestinians), please read the following articles:
* NEWS1422 - "The Coming Prophesied Annihilation of the 'House of Esau' - Today's Palestinians"* NEWS1620 - Israeli Prime Minister Declares Israel Will Create 'Physical Buffer Zones', Exactly The Kind of Action If Annihilation Is Planned
Therefore, we should expect that a Palestinian State will be created and its founding will be trumpeted to the world, but no permanent state will ever be created. Even as Abbas continues to press for such a nation, and for "contiguous" land mass, no infrastructure and no underpinnings necessary for a government to be established really exists. Therefore, when the time comes for a Palestinian State to start functioning, it will likely break apart in internecine warfare.
But, the prophetic significance of a Palestinian State being established is that, once Israel has separated her Jewish population from the Palestinian, she can go to war to annihilate her Arab neighbors, beginning with the Palestinians. At this point, the planned World War III will begin, and out of the smoke and dust of this war, the Masonic Christ will appear.
That event comes closer by the day!
NEWS BRIEF: "US wants to be able to access Britons' ID cards", By Kim Sengupta, The Independent, 27 May 2005
"The United States wants Britain's proposed identity cards to have the same microchip and technology as the ones used on American documents. The aim of getting the same microchip is to ensure comparability in screening terrorist suspects. But it will also mean that information contained in the British cards can be accessed across the Atlantic. Michael Chertoff, the newly appointed US Secretary for Homeland Security, has already had talks with the Home Secretary, Charles Clarke, and the Transport Secretary, Alistair Darling, to discuss the matter ... Mr Chertoff also proposed that British citizens wishing to visit the US should consider entering a "Trusted Traveller" scheme. Under this, they would forward their details to the US embassy to be vetted. If successful, they would receive a document allowing "fast- tracking" through the US immigration system.
"A pilot scheme will start within a few months between the US and the Netherlands, allowing Dutch visitors to use a Trusted Traveller card to enter the US without being subjected to further questioning or screening ... Mr Chertoff said compatability and the checking system was intended purely to track down "terrorists and criminals" and the main aim was to provide a 'fair and reasonable system'."
Of course, this proposal is supposed to sound normal and attractive. Of course, no citizen should feel threatened in any way when he loses even more of his anonymity. But, given the reality that the world is spinning toward the global Kingdom of the Christ (Antichrist), can anyone sense the coming "World I.D. Card" coming out of this proposal?
Another instance where the approaching Kingdom of Antichrist can be discerned on the near horizon.
IX. As Oprah Winfrey's slick, popular magazine suddenly expressed sympathy for a Palestinian woman who had been planning a suicide bombing murder, we learn something else about Oprah which might explain her anti-Semitic views --- she is in daily contact with a supernatural Spirit Guide! Occultists are most often anti-Semitic.
NEWS BRIEF: "Oprah's Mag Misses the Mark: Continued media omission of incitement to violence in Palestinian culture", Honest Reporting.com
"As you read the following speech, delivered by imam Ibrahim Mudayris on national Palestinian TV on May 13, ask yourself how these words might influence an impressionable teenage Muslim girl:
'With the establishment of the State of Israel, the entire Muslim nation was lost because Israel is a cancer that spread in the body of the Islamic nation; because the Jews are a virus similar to AIDS, from which the entire world is suffering... The day will come and we shall rule America, Britain, we shall rule the entire world, except the Jews. The Jews will not live under our rule agreeably and permanently, since they have been treacherous in nature throughout history... Listen to your Beloved [Muhammad], who tells you about the most dire end awaiting the Jews. The stones and trees will want Muslims to finish off every Jew.'
Every thinking person on earth would realize that, if public education continually teaches this kind of incendiary propaganda to their young, impressionable students, eventually these students will grow into adulthood with such hatred in their hearts that they will be willing to take action to "finish off every Jew.' For this reason, Palestinian political leaders and clerics have no trouble getting young Palestinians to volunteer to become suicide bombers. Yet, Oprah Winfrey continues her Liberal, Leftist-leaning ways as she argues that these young people volunteer for suicide missions because they "feel hopeless" and are mired in "abject poverty" -- arguments which have been heard, investigated, and rejected by discerning people.
Listen to Oprah's rantings and ravings.
"Oprah Winfrey's popular print magazine - 'O' - has an ongoing feature named 'Rescuing the World's Girls.' O's June 2005 edition focuses on the plight of an 18-year-old Palestinian who was tried, convicted and is currently serving time in an Israeli jail for conspiring to perform a suicide bombing. The author, David France, asks the question: 'What would make a girl take such a radical and grisly step?' France quotes an author and university professor who asserts that: 'religion is not the cause [of Palestinian suicide terror]... these are people who define their situation as hopeless. They feel that they have no way to respond against what they see as Israeli military aggression'."
"Incredibly, the lengthy 'O' article completely ignores a main factor behind Islamist terror? the incitement to violence that continually spews forth from Palestinian media and mosques ... Palestinian girl featured in 'O', Yusra Abdu (at right), was likely bombarded by such messages her entire life."
Prime Minister Sharon recognized the importance of this type of a propaganda educational system when he said during an AIPAC meeting in New York City:
'I believe that the day will come when we will sign a peace agreement with all our neighbors.... Unfortunately, our Arab neighbors still do not recognize the Jewish people's birthright to an independent state in our homeland - the land of Israel. Such recognition can only come through comprehensive change in their education system.'
You will know when the Palestinians are really ready to live in peace with their Israeli neighbors; they will immediately stop this kind of hateful incitement pouring forth from their public school system. Unfortunately, that kind of change will take generations to accomplish, time which I do not believe prophecy will grant.
However, there is another aspect to this story which needs to be reported. People who are practitioners of the occult, they are almost always deeply anti-Semitic. Why is this so? Satan hates the Jewish people and desperately wants to eradicate them. Should the Jews ever be thrown out of their land, or be annihilated, Satan will have won over Omnipotent God, and that is never going to happen!
Let us now review the occult side Oprah Winfrey.
NEWS BRIEF: "Oprah Winfrey: Controlled by Spirit Guides", by Jason Kovar
"Acceptance to New Age ideas have gushed forth into peoples living rooms via television shows and motion pictures for decades, and society is quickly warming up to them. In objection to God's Word, Satan is deceiving the world with empty promises of heaven and peppering them for the wrath of God that is to be revealed on the sons of disobedience. Perhaps no example of such a pawn of disobedience is better than Oprah Winfrey ... Known as "The Queen of the Talk Shows," Oprah Winfrey could also be called the Queen of the New Age. Her ideological presentations and touching emotional displays have catapulted her show into the public's consciousness year after year. Because of her immense swaying power and ability to appear before millions every day without fail, Oprah Winfrey is spiritually one of the most dangerous women on the face of the planet. Oprah has admitted to coming into contact with what is called the Universal Hum. Roseanne, also a New Ager, has admitted to an initiation into this hum and occultist Jimmy Page wrote in his song Stairway to Heaven that, "Your head is humming and it won't go in case you don't know." Page admits that Stairway, the most popular song ever in America, was given to him by the spirit world via automatic writing. Others who have had contact with the occult attest to a sinister type of ringing or humming that lulls the mind and body in preparation for advanced occult indoctrination.
"Oprah claims that once she broke into the other side, she encountered the sense of empowerment she sought for. This insidious pursuit of empowerment has led to selling her soul to demonic spirits for ingenious perpetration and temporal gain. Blatantly honest about her reliance on the spirit realm, Winfrey has said: 'I ask God for grace, and the power of the spirits....Calling on you. Calling on you...I really believe I can call her up. Her and so many others. I'm counting on them'."
Now you know the spiritual truth, and quite possibly the spiritual power, behind this incredibly popular show.
X. "Choosing Evil" -- Finally, we can understand how everyone on earth, including many professing Christians, will be persuaded to take the "Mark of the Beast".
NEWS BRIEF: "Choosing evil", by Vox Day, WorldNetDaily, May 23, 2005
"... given the choice between paradise and eternal torment, who in their right mind would choose the latter? This presumes a rational ability on the part of Man that nearly all the evidence suggests does not exist ... How many people opposed to the coming system of total financial tracking from cradle to grave nevertheless sign their children up for a Social Security number because it saves them a bit of money on their taxes every year? Implanted digital currency is less than 10 years away – I used to wonder how it would ever be possible for St. John's bad guys to get people to go along with something as monstrous as the Mark of the Beast. Now, I know. Governments will offer a $1,500 credit for paying your taxes that way and so-called Christians around the globe will sign up in droves.
"The saving grace of evil is that it appears to have a compulsion of some sort to announce itself ... George W. Bush campaigned as an anti-conservative, openly rejecting individualism, while echoing rhetoric from the likes of LBJ and FDR, then to the apparent surprise of nearly everyone in the Republican Party, began governing in a manner nearly indistinguishable from the two archliberals ... The decision to choose evil is always easy, usually much easier than one would ever imagine. This is because it's the popular choice – the one that will allow you to fit in, the one that will prevent people from pointing fingers at you and describing you in unflattering terms ... There is a reason the right path is described as being the difficult one. One should not be depressed when the way seems difficult – indeed, it is only when everything seems obvious, easy and socially acceptable that we should begin to question the rightness of our chosen direction."
Mr. Day has hit on something very true. When people are told to take the "Mark of the Beast", they will do so because so many of the people living at that time are going to so overwhelmingly support the Masonic Christ, to take his mark will be the "popular choice". Conversely, anyone not wanting to take this mark is going to feel such overwhelming ostracism as to make it very difficult to resist.
Even today, many of you have felt the heat and fury of your co-workers, family members, and church fellows when you have tried to talk facts about President Bush. Christians have been very hard on discerning brothers and sisters who can see George W. for who he really is. If Christians today are this undiscerning, how can they be discerning when Antichrist is on the world scene?
If Christian leaders and pastors are so blind about President Bush, whose spiritual fruits are so plainly provable, how can they hope to see through the incredible deceptions surrounding Antichrist?
These are terrible questions to ponder as mankind speeds towards its awful appointment with God's Prophetic Destiny.

The truth of the matter is that the "Trojan Horse" trap is huge and will advance the cause of Gay Marriage even as it is disguised as a Defense of Marriage! -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n2035.cfm
The recurring theme of this book is the danger imposed upon the eternal destiny of future generations due to the desire to 'do anything it takes' to build the numbers of the church roles. Dr. Bob Jones, Sr., warned against this very principle when he said, 'Never sacrifice the permanent on the altar of the immediate'. Though Dr. Jones could never in his most lucid nightmares have envisioned a church built upon the outcome-based 'end justifies the means' philosophies of the Pied Pipers of the New Paradigm, today's 'Greater Evangelical Community' is sacrificing its children on the altar of postmodernism while pragmatically proclaiming 'great success' in 'building the Kingdom of God'. However, when a closer look is taken at those involved in today's western religious scene the appalling truth of even this generation's desperate condition comes to the forefront.
The evidence of this widespread issue is confirmed by a survey taken by Barna Research Group ... in November, 2003. The results were shocking, to say the least:
* Only 4% of adults surveyed have a Biblical worldview
* Only 9% of "Born-Again Christians" surveyed have a Biblical worldview
* Only 7% of Protestants have a Biblical worldview
* Only 2% of mainline Protestants have a Biblical worldview
* Only 0.04% of Roman Catholics surveyed have a Biblical worldview
* Only 13% of non-denominational Protestants have a Biblical worldview
* Only 10% of Pentecostals have a Biblical worldview
* Only 8% of Baptists surveyed have a Biblical worldview
"... While these numbers are absolutely terrifying to any true child of God, the most horrifying of all these statistics is the fact that only 9% of those surveyed who claim to be 'Born-Again' profess a Biblical worldview ... The only possible responsibility for failure exhibited in these facts points directly to the pastorate of professing Christiandom ... The lack of expository doctrinal preaching from the pulpits of this nation is yielding a new generation that is 'Christian' in name only. Yet, in spite of this, the Evangelical Church proclaims that there are more 'Christians' in the world today than at any other time in history ... according to Barna less than one in ten professing to be Born-Again have the doctrinal convictions to support their contention.
"Additionally, if men such as Schuller, Rick Warren, and Hybels ... continue to communicate outcome-based methodology, more individuals will receive little or no doctrinal instruction, and thousands of New Paradigm 'Christians' will be one day condemned to hear the words, 'Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity, for I never knew you' ... As a result, minds will change, Fundamentalism will disappear, the new system will break through, and (Peter) Drucker's new society (New World Order) will emerge.
"... now is the time of the paradigm shift. Religious thinking is being reshaped more than at any time since the First Century ... the fruits of Modernism, the New Evangelicism, the Charismatic Movement, the values-changing agenda of whole-system transitionalists, the influence of politics on the church, the financing of the secular elite, and postmodern 'tolerance' are coming to fruition in the minds of the doctrinally-starved members of the New Paradigm Church who are blindly mesmerized by the Pied Pipers of Outcome-Based Religion."
