THE CUTTING EDGE

From the beginning of the Christian Church, genuinely Born Again adherents have shared the same heartbeat: When will our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, come back to earth to remove evil and sin from the world, seize Antichrist and his False Religious Prophet, and set up His 1,000 Year Reign. The words, "How Long" have been on the lips of countless Christians during these past 2,000 years.
In the days of the Apostle Paul, a group had arisen from within the Church, teaching that the world had already entered into the "Day of the Lord". Paul set this group straight, telling them that the world was not on that End of the Age time and then giving a very concrete prophesy by which the world would know that the "Day of the Lord", also known as the "End of the Age" had most definitely come upon the world.
Let us review that event now, because once we do so, you will instinctively realize that this prophesied event has occurred.
"BUT RELATIVE to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and our gathering together to meet Him, we beg you, brethren, Not to allow your minds to be quickly unsettled or disturbed or kept excited or alarmed, whether it be by some pretended revelation of the Spirit or by word or by letter, alleged to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has already arrived and is here." (2 Thessalonians 2:1-2; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
As you can see, the people of Paul's day actually had been mislead into believing that the Lord had already returned for his people, and these folk had missed Him! Is it any wonder that these poor people were "unsettle, or disturbed or kept excited or alarmed"? You would experience all of these emotions if you felt you had missed the Rapture of the Church, for then the Biblically-literate Christian knows that he will then have to endure Antichrist, with all God's judgments which that entails. As we have stated time and time again, you do not want to miss the Rapture, for then you will face the horrific consequences of living on the earth at the time Antichrist arises.
Then, Paul gives a most concrete prophesy as to how and when Christians may know with certainty that the End of the Age is close -- that the Rapture is close at hand.
"Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first, unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come, and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom, of perdition." (2 Thessalonians 2:3; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Notice this doctrinal "falling away" is foretold to be a "great falling away". Bible scholars have long held that this means that the vast majority of Christian churches at the End of the Age will have abandoned key doctrines to such an extent that they no longer can even be considered Christian.
To any seasoned, informed observer, the times of the Church falling away from formerly held key doctrines is clearly at hand. Satan has learned long ago that he needs to introduce a variety of deceptions, for no total population of people will ever fall for just one lie; therefore, Satan has clearly introduced a variety of false religions, knowing that if a person is not deceived by one great falsehood, he may fall for another.
Let us quickly list some of the false churches with which the world has to deal right now. This list is not meant to be an all-inclusive one, but just to get you to thinking of all the false churches which exist today.
* Roman Catholic Church - Has long been the cult of the Virgin Mary, and practitioner of White Magic Witchcraft (NEWS1334, entitled, "The Roman Catholic Church Proven To Be Just A Practice of White Magic Witchcraft") From the Roman church will arise the prophesied False Prophet of Revelation 13, the Second Beast who serves the First Beast, possesses his occult power, and causes everyone on earth to worship Antichrist and ultimately take his Mark of the Beast - Rev 13:11-18) In fact, the Illuminati firmly decided in early, 1991, that the Roman Catholic Pontiff, whomever he was at the time, would be the top religious leader of the world's United Religions, thus identifying the pope as the False Prophet.
* Jehovah's Witnesses
* The Church of Jesus Christ, Latter Day Saints -- Mormonism. Since both Joseph Smith and Brigham Young were 33rd Degree Freemasons, you should not be surprised to learn that the Witchcraft practiced in the inner Temple at Salt Lake City is the most powerful witchcraft in the world (Former Satanist, Bill Schnoebelen). If you need visual proof, get Schnoebelen's booklet showing the deeply Satanic symbols all over the outside of the Mormon Temple ("Mormonism's Temple of Doom")
* Liberal Mainline Protestant Denominations -- Methodists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians lead the group of Mainline denominations who have badly abandoned key doctrines of the faith. Many of them today are denying the Divinity of Jesus Christ, and fastening themselves to the growing Ecumenical body of religions throughout the world, uniting on the basis of what they can agree and ignoring the doctrines upon which they cannot agree.
This great body of churches is also dabbling in the practices of the occult and of the New Age Movement, allowing actual Witchcraft (channeling) and/or actual Hinduism practices to come into the church, deceiving many millions.
* Southern Baptist Convention -- While some people will be upset that I have included this group, their long love of Freemasonry and of allowing Masons to be pastors, deacons, and leaders in their colleges and seminaries is finally bearing mature rotten fruit. Just recently, we learned that Dr. Richard Land is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
* Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Church. As we have demonstrated time and again, this church seems to be the fulfillment of the Laodicean Church prophesied in Revelation 3 as the last major church of the Church Age. Leaders of this church teach a salvation which is utterly devoid of recognition of sin, repentance of sin, and recognition of the substitutionary blood sacrifice which Jesus suffered for mankind. Obviously, this is not Biblical salvation and will lead its adherents into Hell rather than into Heaven.
Beyond the churches, the world today is awash in false Christian religious leaders. About two years ago, we posted an article in which we listed those religious leaders who had accepted monies for the Rev. Sun Myung Moon (NEWS1818). Read this article carefully, for it lists these counterfeit Christian leaders; be prepared to be shocked, for there are names in this report which you probably did not anticipate being there.
But, we should not be surprised that false religious leaders should arise, for that is also listed as a sign that the End of the Age is upon us. Listen to Jesus' warning:
"For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God's chosen ones).' (Matthew 24:24; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
The word, "Christ" is the office of the Jewish Messiah, and is considered by scholars to be primarily political in nature. For this reason, we read:
* "... the government shall be upon his shoulder." Isaiah 9:6
* "... Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom..." Isaiah 9:7
The key issue is government. "The Christ" foretold in this passage is the office of Messiah -- primarily political.
However, the next office Jesus mentions is definitely religious.
"... false prophets will arise..."
This is the office of a false religious leader. The ultimate example of this false leader will be the False Prophet, equal in occult power to Antichrist (Rev 13:12-13), but subservient to Antichrist (Rev 13:12), as his primary mission is to lead people to the worship of Antichrist. Later, in Revelation 17:16, we see that Antichrist turns on the False Prophet to totally destroy him and his false, idolatrous religious system.
Today, we see such a wide and deep falling away of most churches in America, led by these false religious leaders, that we know the final religious apostasy is upon the world.
However, the scenes we are about to show you are so heinous as to be almost unbelievable; in fact, we believe these Satanic symbols within a recently renovated Methodist Church may become the symbols for how deep and how wide this "great falling away" has proceeded. The Apostasy is so prevalent that Masons were able to set stained glass windows in this Methodist Church in the heart of America which contain deep and bold Satanic images.
The pastor refused to take these stained glass windows out, once a visiting evangelist informed him of their Masonic origins. Let us now begin to examine these startling Satanic stained glass windows.
This All-Seeing Eye is one of the boldest I have ever seen; further, it contains the most detail I believe I have seen in a very long time -- and it is a stained glass window in this Methodist Church. The All-seeing eye originated in Egypt in those Satanic Mysteries which God physically judged during the time of Moses, when he lead the Israelites out of the land by the mighty hand of God. The All-Seeing Eye was representative of the omniscience of Horus, the Sun God, ["Magic Symbols", by Frederick Goodman, p. 103, Satanic symbols book].
As one Masonic book says, "These considerations lead us to an interesting topic, the Eye of Mind or the Eye of Horus ... and conveying the idea of the 'All seeing Eye'. The end set before the Egyptian neophyte was illumination, that is to be 'brought to light'. The Religion of Egypt was the Religion of the Light". [Thomas Milton Stewart, "The Symbolism of the Gods of the Egyptians and the Light They Throw on Freemasonry", London, England, Baskerville Press, Ltd., 1927, p. 5]
Anyone who knows their Scripture and thinks of themselves as "Christian" should feel right now like they have been slapped alongside their head with a two-by-four! This Masonic author has just told you that the Light to which Masons constantly refer, and toward which they are to constantly move, is the Religion of Horus! This is damning, because in Egyptian Mythology, Horus IS Lucifer [Former Satanist, William Schnoebelen, "Masonry: Beyond The Light", p. 197]
However, the evidence that Lucifer is the god of Masonry resides elsewhere in the writings of the Invisible Fraternity. Albert Pike writes in Morals and Dogma that Lucifer is the "light-bearer" [p. 321, teachings of the 19th Degree], and is the "Angel of Light" on p. 567, teachings of the 26th Degree]. Finally, Masonic author, Manly P. Hall, says that, once the Mason really learns the secret of his Craft, he shall have the "seething energies of Lucifer in his hands". ["The Lost Keys To Freemasonry", published by the Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Co., 1976, p. 48]
However, Freemasonry also depict this Eye of Horus within a pyramid. All Satanists love the pyramid, because it represents the Pagan Trinity of Satan, Antichrist, and False Prophet. They use this 3-sided geometric shape constantly. In this symbol, called the Euclid, we see that the All-Seeing Eye is positioned above the traditional Masonic symbol of the Compass/Square, with the "G" in the middle. This means that the All-Seeing Eye controls Freemasonry, which is exactly correct.
Once you grasp this concept, you will be far down the road to understanding the roots of Masonry. This secret society is truly governed by Lucifer's All-Seeing Eye.
This symbol of the All-Seeing Eye within a pyramid was appropriated in 1776 by the Illuminati. [Robert Hieronimus, Ph.D., "America's Secret Destiny", White Magic book, p. 59]
In 1789, a secret meeting of Masonic members of the Constitutional Congress approved the symbol, but declared it should be kept secret. These Masonic members of the Constitutional Congress rightly feared the general public would immediately recognize this symbol as being Masonic and reject it outright. You see, the General Awakening Revival had been underway since the mid-1740's, resulting in perhaps one-half of the population in the American Colonies being Born Again Christian, a proportion never to be seen again.
Masonic leaders at the time were worried that the key Christian leaders would recognize this All-Seeing Eye hovering over the unfinished pyramid a the Luciferian symbol it truly is. So they hid it, until 1935, when the guiding spirit of both President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his Agriculture Secretary Henry Wallace, decreed that the time had come for the symbol to be made public. Christian leaders no longer knew the "devices of Satan" -- 1935. Today, Christian leaders are not only ignorant of Satan's symbols, but they gullibly accept them as "Christian" symbols!
Masonic Square and Compass - Major Symbol of Freemasonry
As you can see, this Masonic Square & Compass is shown on top of an open Bible on a pedestal. I have seen this symbol many times, as it is a major symbol in the attempt of this secret society to convince the naive and the gullible that Masonry is Christian. However, even as Masons say they adore the Bible and its teachings, their actions contradict this claim! Remember, Jesus boldly claimed that He was the only way to the Father in Heaven. True Christianity claims a unique distinctiveness, while Masonry claims a uniquely broad approach, i.e., all religious roads lead to Heaven.
J.S.M. Ward, a Masonic authority who has written several important books on masonry, wrote in his book "FREEMASONRY: ITS AIMS & IDEALS" (Pg.185): "I consider freemasonry is a significantly organized school of mysticism to be entitled to be called a religion." Ward continues on page 187, "Freemasonry... taught that each man can, by himself, work out his own conception of god and thereby achieve salvation." It holds that there are many paths that lead to the throne of the all-loving father which all start from a common source. Freemasonry believes, according to Ward, "that though these paths appear to branch off in various directions, yet they all reach the same ultimate goal, and that to some men, one path is better and to other, another.
Joseph Ford Newton, a famous authority and writer, in an article entitled "The Bible and Masonry", wrote "The bible, so rich in symbolism, is itself a symbol... thus, by the very honor which masonry pays the Bible, it teaches us to revere every book of faith in which men find help for today and hope for tomorrow, joining hands with the man of Islam as he takes his oath on the Koran, with the Hindu as he makes covenant with God upon the book that he loves best." [This quote is also found in "Masonic Edition, The Holy Bible: The Great Light In Masonry", A.J. Holman Company, Philadelphia, 1924, Introduction]
Can you imagine that? In the eyes of Masonry, the precious Bible is but one holy book in the world, no better than the Koran and with the Hindu practitioner. What blasphemy!
But, there is much, much more! This Square & Compass depicts the Sex Act -- right on the open pages of the Bible!
Masonic Emblem of Square and Compass Depicting Sex
Masonic authors boldly state that the symbolism of the traditional square and compass of Freemasonry represents the heterosexual sex act. Listen to Albert Pike explaining this fact to members of the 32nd Degree. "The Compass, therefore, is the Hermetic Symbol of the Creative Deity, and the Square of the productive Earth or Universe." ["Morals and Dogma", by Albert Pike, p. 850-1].
Therefore, the Masons look at the compass as the male phallus and the square as the female vulva. As you look at the Masonic Emblem here, you can see the obvious penetration of the female square point by the points of the Compass. One point of difference here is that the Satanist generally reverses the sex roles of the Compass and the Square. However, whichever way you look at it, the Compass and the Square are thought of as depicting the heterosexual sex act.
Can you imagine greater blasphemy than this symbol? Right on the pages of the Holy Bible is laid a typical Satanic symbol of the heterosexual sex act -- in a church for crying out loud! Satan must be laughing all the way from Earth to Hell.
A Most Evil Symbol
Before we leave the subject of the Masonic Emblem of the Square and Compass, I want to show you a particularly evil symbol depicting the Square and Compass. This scene depicts several unmistakable Satanic images, tied in with the Masonic Emblem, also known as the Square and Compass. First, note the hexagram to the far left of the picture. Remember, the hexagram is the most evil of all Black Magick symbols. Witches have used it for years to cast curses on people; many people in the past few thousand years have died by having a hex placed on them. Second, notice the Sun over head in this picture. Just as the Egyptians did in the days when God cursed them and their religion, Freemasons worship the Sun in general and the Egyptian Sun God, Ra, particularly. Finally, note that the sharp end of the square is driving deeply into the Holy Bible beneath. As Christian author, Ralph Epperson proves in his book, Masonry: Conspiracy Against Christianity , the #1 top secret of Masonry is not that they worship Satan/Lucifer; rather, the #1 secret of Freemasonry is that they plan to eradicate Christianity in complete fulfillment of End Time prophecies! This symbol captures this goal perfectly.
This symbol is from the Rosicrucian secret society, a mystic counterfeit Christianity. While they read the Bible and quoted from it, and prayed to Jesus, they actively practiced Witchcraft rituals! Rosicrucianism is probably the most important example of mixing "Christ and Baal". While they revere the cross, they insert it into a worldly crown. They felt that Jesus could not return to earth until and unless the Christian Church conquered the earth first -- a most onerous and unbiblical doctrine.
However, there is much more to this symbol.
Sex In The Cross And The Crown
Most Christians would have no trouble accepting the Cross and the Crown symbol here. After all, our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ received His Crown in Heaven after He suffered the agony of the Cross. However, Freemasons have just a little bit more on their minds than this; they have a whole lot of sex on their brains.
In the Masonic Report, we make this discovery: Question: What does Masonry's emblem of the 'Cross and Crown' actually symbolize?" Answer: "The 'Cross' of Freemasonry is a philosophical cross, according to Albert Pike, 'Morals and Dogma', p. 771. It is philosophical in the sense that it represents the generating fecundating principle by the perpendicular shaft [Phallus], and the matrix of womb of nature, the female producing principle[Female Vulva], by the horizontal shaft. The philosophy of the Masonic cross is totally phallic. The 'Crown' of this Masonic emblem is also phallic, it being the first emanation of the Cabalistic Sephiroth ..." [C.F. McQuaig, "The Masonic Report", Norcross, Georgia, Answer Books and Tapes, 1976, p. 34]
Look what they have done to the precious Cross of Jesus Christ! How dare they take it and turn it into a phallic symbol. Furthermore, how dare they take the precious Crown of Jesus Christ and turn it into a phallic symbol? Actually, the Cross was made to be representative of the entire Sex Act -- heterosexual intercourse -- by pretending the perpendicular staff to be the phallus and the horizontal bar be the female sex organ!
One side issue that this quote settles is that this official Masonic publication, printed in contemporary times, 1976, quotes Albert Pike as an authority. We have had many emails from Masons claiming that Albert Pike had been discredited by contemporary Masonry, and even some email suggesting that a "rogue" Albert Pike wrote Morals and Dogma and Magnum Opus . We can now see that this is simply a lie designed to try to confuse.
Surely, you can now see that Freemasonry is most definitely NOT Christian. Secondly, you can see that Masonry is truly "identical to the Mysteries". In fact, one Masonic author had the boldness to state that Freemasonry was, indeed, a Mystery Religion. Listen: "In fact, the respect paid by Freemasons to this number [#3] goes far to suggest that our mysteries have affinities not only with the Egyptian rites and ceremonies, but with those of a good many other nations." [John T. Lawrence, "The Perfect Ashlar", London, England, 1912, p. 196]
Thank you, Mr. Lawrence, for clearing this matter up with us, and with all people everywhere who are interested in the Truth. By their own admission, Freemasonry IS a Mysteries Religion. Every Mystery Religions in all of past history have had several things in common:
1) They serve Lord Satan, most of them openly
2) They reject the One True God of the Holy Bible
3) God has brought every one of these Mystery Religions into physical judgment. Freemasonry will be no different, but will get its judgment in conjunction with Antichrist.
The sexual perversions of these Masonic symbols should go far to persuading everyone that Freemasonry is not Christian. However, the fact that this symbol is laid upon an open Bible and is a stained glass window in a Protestant, Methodist Church (recently renovated), simply adds fire to the fuel, insult to injury. Satanism rules this church.
Bees Hovering Over And Around A Beehive
Freemasonry loves this symbol. As Albert Pike is explaining the Mason's spiritual belief about the serpent, he mentions the Zodiac, bees and honey. Listen.
"The Virgin of the zodiac is bitten in the heel by Serpens, who, with Scorpio, rises immediately behind her; and as honey, the emblem of purity and salvation, was thought to be an antidote to the serpent's bite, so the bees of Aristaeus, the emblems of nature's abundance, are destroyed through the agency of the serpent, and regenerated within the entrails of the Vernal Bull. The Sun-God is finally victorious."
[Ibid.] Note that Masonry identified also identifies itself with the pagans who divine the future by studying the entrails of a bull. This is such blatant Satanism! Further, Masonry reveres the Sun-God, a Baal type of god whom the real Lord God of the Bible thoroughly despises. Look up references to the Phonecian Sun-God Baal in your Bible to see how much God hates the pagan Sun-God. But, Masonry teaches that bees are "destroyed through the agency of the serpent, and regenerated within the entrails of the Vernal Bull".
Note that Masonry identified also identifies itself with the pagans who divine the future by studying the entrails of a bull. This is such blatant Satanism!
Thus, throughout Masonic symbols, you consistently see the symbol of the bees and their beehive. I had always been curious as to why the beehives were so commonly depicted on Masonic web sites, because Christianity does not use this symbol. But, now, thanks to Pike, we now know.
Note, also, that the honey depicts "purity" and "salvation". This symbolism is also blasphemous, because the Bible depicts purity as either Jesus Himself, or as white wool, or as a white garment. Salvation is depicted as the Cross or Jesus arising from the grave. But, the pagans are surely true to the Biblical description of them as "worshipping the creature rather than the Creator" [Romans 1:25]
Many people think that the letters "INRI" come from Christian traditionalism. However, these letters come from Christian mysticism (Rosicrucianism) generally, and the Roman Catholic pagan tradition specifically. Listen to the explanation given "INRI" from a Satanic symbols book, which I bought in a New Age bookstore.
"There are many symbols intended to represent the Quintessence ... Sometimes the Quintessence is symbolized in alchemical documents as the space at the centre of the cross holding together the four essences in pact or union. Something of this magical symbolism still survives in Christian art relating to the imagery of the crucifix. The top of the Cross was visualized as being bathed in the spirit. this is why the Logos is symbolized by the four letters (INRI) on the scroll at the top of the Cross in many Christian images." (Frederick Goodman, "Magic Symbols", pages 66-69)
As you can see, INRI comes from that mystic Christianity known as Rosicrucianism -- just as did the crown and the cross.
Freemasonry reveres Rosicrucianism which is why they have a couple of degrees, either by that name or "Rose and Cross", or "Rosy Cross".
The Freemasons who gained enough control over this Methodist Church to get these Masonic images set in the church as stained glass windows during the renovation are obviously of the York Lodges, a group within Masonry which really reveres Rosicrucianism.
What should a person do if they are going to a church like this one, or one which tolerates the immense evil of Freemasonry in any form? Listen to the commands of Jesus:
""Come out of her [the wicked system], my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues." (Revelation 18:4; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Don't let anyone try to talk you out of leaving. Simply walk out and never go back. Former Satanist Bill Schnoebelen, states the Biblical truth, that Freemasonry in its rituals opens a spiritual door to all of its adherents; once they pass through even the first Blue Lodge Degree, they give permission for the demonic host to come into them, to either possess them or afflict them. Further, the poor man brings these demons home with him from the Lodge, to afflict family members, causing fights and divisions, and fleshly sin.
I guarantee you that these stain glass windows were passed through a ritual which is designed to bring demons into this church. Everyone who attends that church is opening himself or herself up to demon possession or affliction.
Therefore, do not let the door hit you as you walk out!
If God would allow Satan to so thoroughly permeate a church, we are truly at the prophesied "Apostasy" of the End of the Age.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
