I. Senator John McCain boldly told his audience in Atlanta, Georgia, on Friday that Washington, D.C., is a "City of Satan"!

NEWS BRIEF: "McCain Calls D.C. 'City Of Satan' ", NBC4 News, Match 7, 2008

"Republican presidential candidate John McCain had some choice words for the nation's capital on Friday. 'In case you haven't noticed, we in Washington aren't functioning as we should be', McCain said. 'It's getting harder and harder to do the Lord's work in the City of Satan'."

Now that is a newsworthy quote! The man who will become the Republican nominee for President of the United States, has just called Washington, D.C. "the City of Satan' "! Cutting Edge Ministries has been saying this for years! Over the years, we have posted articles which have revealed that Washington, D.C. was originally created with Satanic symbols woven into her street layouts, into paintings and sculptures in Government Center, and into the monuments themselves.

This is a partial list of the articles we have written:




Of course, the material revealed in the DVD, "Riddles in Stone - Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C.", goes all the way in revealing the occult Masonic architecture of Washington, D.C. We have posted just one segment, below, of this revealing DVD.

Everyone knows that the street layout for the streets just north of the White House forms a nearly perfect Pentagram. However, since one segment is missing. Masonic apologists argue that this design cannot be considered a true pentagram; they call it just an accidental design! However, "Riddles in Stone" demonstrates that this pentagram with one segment missing is true Witchcraft, for the 8-year transit of Venus around the Sun paints nearly a perfect Pentagram, missing only one segment -- the very same segment missing in the street layout (left).

Once one understands the philosophic meaning of the pentagram, it becomes clearer as to why certain Masonic founding fathers who revered the Ancient Mysteries would have employed it. The pentagram has been used for centuries to symbolize the dog-star Sirius, known as the "Blazing Star" by the ancient Gnostics. It was also the symbol for the planet Venus, which forms a pentagram pattern in the heavens during its 8 year rotation around the sun. Yet the pattern of Venus forms an "unfinished" pentagram, which may very well be the reason the Washington D.C. pentagram is incomplete.

The Pythagoreans believed that entering into the underworld (i.e. Hell) would lead a person to greater wisdom. The best example of this is Dante's "Inferno," in which Dante begins his journey in Hell and eventually ascends into Paradise. Therefore, the evil Inverted Pentagram was revered by the Mason, for it symbolized him becoming a "Perfected Man" and later, "as the gods".

We explain this occultic belief in which Freemasons believed as they founded this country, and much, much more, in an extremely easy and understandable manner, in "Riddles in Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington D.C."

We must thank Senator McCain for confirming that Washington, D.C., is a "City of Satan"! As "Riddles in Stone" and the Cutting Edge articles, above, demonstrate, the city's planners created Satan in this manner -- from the beginning! Doubt it not!

II. Is Senator Barack Obama the "Messiah" - or at least a Messiah figure?

That question is popping up with a lot more regularity these days, and seems to tie in with the occult theme which Cutting Edge has already noted.

NEWS BRIEF: "Is Barack Obama The Messiah?", by Ben Shapiro, Town Hall, January 31, 2007

"Apparently, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-Illinois, is the Messiah ... Jesus didn't get this kind of Sunday media coverage on Easter Sunday. It is no wonder Slate.com has a running Obama 'Messiah Watch' dedicated to 'considering evidence that Obama is the Son of God'."

Now, this is the kind of rhetoric which should cause Bible-believing Christians to sit up and take notice, at these End of the Age. Jesus firmly warned us to expect "false Christs" (false political leaders) and "false prophets" (false religious leaders) at the End of the Age. Listen:

"Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." (Matt 24:4-5)

"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." (Matt 24:24)

Barack Obama is causing many people to want to follow him, simply because he is exuding some sort of mysterious power which draws them to the man!

On the website, "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?", we read some startling statements:

"... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama" - Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire. (January 7, 2008)

This statement is most definitely couched in religious terms. And, it is most definitely effective!

"A quantum leap in American consciousness" (Deepak Chopra)

Deepak Chopra is a major New Age author and lecturer! It is highly significant that Obama is suddenly the darling of a person like this. New Age adherents have been looking for a Messiah figure for a very long time. The fact that he would be so enthusiastic about Obama is very telling as to the kind of eclectic power which he is exuding.

Also, note his quote about a "quantum leap in American consciousness". New Agers believe that, just before the New Age Christ appears, mankind will have passed through a "quantum leap of consciousness"! In fact, the Christ cannot appear until the population of the world passes through this 'quantum leap of consciousness"! Therefore, this statement is within the New Age context of waiting for their Messiah.

"We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." (Obama, Super Tuesday)

The major themes from Obama are deceptively short and very useful as mass propaganda -- 1) "Keep it simple, stupid" and 2) repeat the same short message as a mantra - are two very effective techniques in deception of the masses. Obama repeats just a few mantras over and over again, and does so as some kind of occult power emanates from his voice and his body.

"Some readers understood right away what I meant last week when I said that John McCain has the misfortune to be running against Luke Skywalker ... Obama's myth is a tried-and-true one. The late folklorist Joseph Campbell called it "the hero's journey," and it's found in every culture, from Moses, David and Odysseus to Luke Skywalker, Frodo and Harry Potter."

"I'll do whatever he says to do. I'll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear." (Halle Berry)

"Barack Obama is our collective representation of our purest hopes, our highest visions and our deepest knowings . . . He's our product out of the all-knowing quantum field of intelligence." (Eve Konstantine)

"This is bigger than Kennedy. . . . This is the New Testament." | "I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event." (Chris Matthews)

Chris Matthews clearly felt a Messianic aura around Obama!

"Obama's finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They don't even really inspire. They elevate. . . . He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh . . . Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves." (Ezra Klein)

"Obama has the capacity to summon heroic forces from the spiritual depths of ordinary citizens and to unleash there from a symphonic chorus of unique creative acts whose common purpose is to tame the soul and alleviate the great challenges facing mankind." (Gerald Campbell)

Clearly, this kind of language is the jargon of a religious messiah.

"We're here to evolve to a higher plane . . . he is an evolved leader . . . [he] has an ear for eloquence and a Tongue dipped in the Unvarnished Truth." (Oprah Winfrey)

“I would characterize the Senate race as being a race where Obama was, let’s say, blessed and highly favored. That’s not routine. There’s something else going on. I think that Obama, his election to the Senate, was divinely ordered. . . . I know that that was God’s plan." (Bill Rush)

Now, listen to some quotes from this website.

"The Obama campaign uses a religious calling as its central rhetorical trope: "I'm asking you to believe," reads the banner across the top of barackobama.com. His appeal to voters is an archetype of religious conversion: instead of being asked for support, Americans are exhorted to 'join the movement'. In Georgia, he directly equated his supporters with God's people."

'We Are The Chosen Ones': A new hymn to Barack Obama - The Telegraph (London), March 6, 2008

"The similarities between Obamian hope and biblical hope are extraordinary."

We could go on and on, listing more instances of Messianic type or Biblical type language. If you want to continue this search, we encourage you to read this material on this "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?" website.

Now, let us return to our Town Hall resource, which we quoted, above, for the final statement which shall lead us into our next news story.

"What is more, Obama knows they are empty promises. In the war between traditionalism and radicalism, Obama stands solidly with radicalism. Though he has a gift for obscuring his positions, Obama is an advocate of gay rights, a strong believer in the concept of private property as social property, an abortion-on-demand fanatic. His pledge to move beyond the politics of the 1960s is a pledge to achieve unity in the fully triumphant program of the 1960s. If Obama is a Messiah, he is a secular Messiah, preaching the word of Tom Hayden."

Did you notice the kinds of positions Obama supports which are anathema to Conservatives and/or Christians?

* Advocate of gay rights

* Strong believer in the concept of private property as social property -- Hillary believes this strongly and the Illuminati Plan envisions the end of private property rights!

* Abortion-on-demand fanatic - How strange for a person who claimed last week that he is a Christian who prays to Jesus daily!

Let us now go on to our third story.

III. World Net Daily reveals that Senator Obama is not only pro-abortion, he is pro-live abortion and pro-partial birth abortion!

NEWS BRIEF: "Why Jesus would not vote for Barack Obama", by Jill Stanek, July 19, 2006

"In February 2004, U.S. Senate candidate Barack Obama's wife, Michelle, sent a fund-raising letter with the 'alarming news' that 'right-wing politicians' had passed a law stopping doctors from stabbing half-born babies in the neck with scissors, suctioning out their brains and crushing their skulls. Michelle called partial-birth abortion 'a legitimate medical procedure', and wouldn't supporters please pay $150 to attend a luncheon for her husband, who would fight against 'cynical ploy[s]' to stop it?"

Since I am speaking to primarily a Christian audience, I think I can just let this pro-partial abortion statement stand on its own. Cutting Edge has posted articles in the past detailing how barbarous a procedure Partial Birth Abortion truly is. When you hear Senator Obama tell people that he is a Christian who prays to Jesus every day, you can properly weigh the difference between his words (which are always cheap) and his actions (his fruits).

Returning to this WorldNetDaily article:

"Legislation was presented on the federal level and in various states called the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. It stated all live-born babies were guaranteed the same constitutional right to equal protection, whether or not they were wanted ... BAIPA sailed through the U.S. Senate by unanimous vote. Even Sens. Clinton, Kennedy and Kerry agreed a mother's right to 'choose' stopped at her baby's delivery ... But in Illinois, the state version of BAIPA repeatedly failed, thanks in large part to then-state Sen. Barack Obama. It only passed in 2005, after Obama left."

"I testified in 2001 and 2002 before a committee of which Obama was a member."

"Obama articulately worried that legislation protecting live aborted babies might infringe on women's rights or abortionists' rights. Obama's clinical discourse, his lack of mercy, shocked me. I was naive back then. Obama voted against the measure, twice. It ultimately failed. In 2003, as chairman of the next Senate committee to which BAIPA was sent, Obama stopped it from even getting a hearing, shelving it to die much like babies were still being shelved to die in Illinois hospitals and abortion clinics."

"So, the reason Keyes said Jesus Christ wouldn't vote for Barack Obama was because of Obama's fanatical support of abortion to the point of condoning infanticide. I have framed on my wall a Chicago Sun-Times cartoon published during the campaign. Obama is holding a sign with 'LIVE BIRTH ABORTION' on it. God is reaching down from heaven to a baby in front of Obama, and the baby is reaching up to God. Obama is yelling at God, 'You keep out of this'!" (NOTE: WorldNetDaily runs this cartoon and it is compelling).

Jill Stanek concluded:

"OK, Sen. Obama, let's reason. Explain why you support abortion for whatever rationale, at whatever gestation, by whatever means. Explain why you support infanticide, if banning it might interfere with abortion. Then, since you brought it up, explain how, despite all that, you think Jesus should vote for you, either now or in the hereafter, particularly given His statement, 'It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around the neck than to face the punishment in store for harming one of these little ones'."

Jesus presented us with the true barometer as to how we Christians are to arrive at a proper conclusion as to whether a person's faith is genuine.

"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Matt 7:15-20)

Notice that this verse ties in Obama's Messianic themes with his evil fruit of supporting all types of Abortion. In the first instance, Obama must be considered a "false prophet", while in this Scripture passage, we are warned to beware of "False Prophets", which come to people looking really genuine, but are "ravening wolves" inside.

"Washington, You're Fired" is a chance for every American to play a serious game of political "catch-up" minus the partisan punch lines. We'll examine both sides of the political aisle exposing some of the most damning laws ever enacted in any country.

"They Shall Beat Their Swords Into Plowshares” - Prophecy 666 Series - Audio CD

Isaiah 55:8-9 reveals that God’s ways and thoughts are clearly higher and greater than man’s. In apparent great contradiction to the world of today, God foretells of a time when His plan will cause all weapons of war to be destroyed and turned into implements of peace and prosperity. How can this be, the natural mind of man asks in great disbelief? Why, the history of mankind for the past 6,000 years is simply a study of his wars with brief periods of peace in between. In 6,000 years of past, peace has been repeatedly sought by the sword. “We are fighting this war so that peace can be established” has been the mantra of many a war. We have to get ready for war and then we shall have peace. World War I was fought as “the war to end all wars”! False peace will at last be implemented on Planet Earth by Antichrist as he copies the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ. But, this “peace” will be so short-lived that it will shock mankind and will result in the greatest bloodbath in world history. - One Hour long - http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1779

"The Ultimate Deception” - Prophetic Series 666 - Audio CD

John 5:43 – “I am come in My Father’s Name and you receive me not; but another will come and him you will receive”

Prophecy is quite clear that Israel, the nation, will receive Antichrist. This prophecy was a devastating to the ruling class of that day, because they were rejecting Jesus as the foretold Messiah. Jesus seemed to be mocking them, saying that, since they are rejecting Him as Israel’s Messiah, their descendents were doomed to be deceived by Antichrist. The Pharisees were extremely knowledgeable of the Old Testament, so they were without excuse when they rejected Jesus as Messiah. Jesus fulfilled every single one of the 300+ prophecies of Messiah.

Now, Israel awaits the final, and the ultimate, deception – their religious leaders will be thoroughly deceived into thinking that the coming Antichrist is the true Messiah for whom the Jews have been awaiting for 3,000 years! The “ultimate deception” is about to break with full force upon the Jewish nation of Israel!

"The Substitute Church & The Antichrist” - Prophecy 666 Series Audio CD

From Rev 13:16-18, we see that a political/religious institution will be necessary for the Powers of Darkness to set up a Substitute Church and the Antichrist. Instead of the Church of Jesus, another church must be established and have many similarities so it can deceive people into thinking this is Jesus’ church and that Antichrist is Jesus returned.

Today, the world and the leaders have committed fornication with the ‘Whore of Babylon” and they are fully in his camp. No matter how great slick propaganda has painted these men as noble and honest patriots, they are following the plan of the Antichrist. Politics, economy and religious entities are being forced into a unity falsely called ‘Democracy”. All political roads lead to Rome and its false religious system. The global economic system is so far advanced that national and international borders no longer exist. Religious unity is the most problematic and is slowly being integrated today. Prophecies make it clear that all people of all religions will one day worship the Beast, Antichrist. Since the Roman Catholic Church is the most influential in the world today and since it has forged many links to Buddhism and Hinduism, the Pope today is the one leading the world’s religions into the prophesied False Prophet religion of Rev 13:11-18.

Rome is, therefore, the most important religious city in the world today. This is a message all Christians need to hear today, for the Church of Rome is leading Protestantism into the Church of Antichrist - One Hour long - http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1778

"The Demon of Sensationalism” - Prophetic 666 Series - Audio CD

Revelation 16:13-14, "“Three unclean spirits like frogs …spirits of devils – to gather them of that great day of God Almighty”

Important issue about Mark of the Beast is the battle in the unseen, spiritual world. This spiritual battle is THE decisive issue in the carrying out Biblical prophecies. Timing is also of God, not man. Invisible spiritual realm is all-important and control all temporal, worldly affairs. Human rulers are simply under the power structure of demons. The world is preparing for the arrival of Antichrist, as their armies are beginning to surround Israel. The Demonic forces are simply being forced by God to gather the rulers of the world for the Battle of Armageddon.

"When He Appears: Christ's Final Steps In Preparing Us For His Coming"

Did you know that the Bride of Jesus Christ -- the Christian Church -- is beautifully portrayed in the Song of Solomon? This book is one of the most lovely works in the Old Testament and is unquestionably the most intimate. It even ranks with secular literature's greatest and most enduring prose

This book brings an insightful approach to the Song of Solomon, first showing it as a historically accurate account of Solomon and his bride by carefully comparing it to other Scriptures which cover Solomon's life

Then, the Song of Solomon is shown as a spiritually accurate allegory of Christ (the King) and the Church (His bride).

The bride is faltering in her marital relationship because of a lack of obedience and intimacy, a self-imposed separation from the groom, from selfishness and the stains of worldly desire. Jesus Christ is returning for His bride, but will the bride be ready 'When He Appears'?
