FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, YOU WILL BE ON
This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.
And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God's people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.
Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God's people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.
The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.
Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.
We have repeatedly demonstrated how the planners of the New World Order have targeted children for intensive training and indoctrination. This should not surprise anyone, for it is from today's children that tomorrow's leaders arise, in all walks of life. Anyone seriously interested in effecting a fundamental change in the values of society, they must necessarily target children. Therefore, the leaders of the drive to the New World Order have targeted our children for a Values Change. This Values Change is not for the better, because the values toward which our children are being moved are the values of the Satanic New World Order. Please stay with us as we examine several ways in which our children, no, your children, are being taught the Satanic values of the New World Order.
Educators have long known that THE most effective way to teach anyone a concept is to have them act out the principles. This is called "Role Playing", and believe me, it is effective. Adults, as well as children, learn more quickly, more completely, and with greater recall, when they learn using the "Role-Playing" method.
The Toy/Cartoon/Comic Book Industry incorporates all the elements of Role-Playing as the designers plan their appeal to children. A child's mind is very active and creative, a fact which is well recognized by the industry. When a child plays with a toy which is supported by story lines from either TV or comics, the child will pretend that his toy can perform exactly as he has seen it perform in the cartoon or comic stories. The child literally creates his own story line around the toy, based upon what he knows its capabilities are in the comic or cartoon story line. The child literally steps into the story to become the character of the story, or the character which is piloting the vehicle. Whether this is good or bad depends entirely upon the subject matter of the story line. When I was a kid I played Cowboys and Indians and Cops and Robbers. Of course, no one ever got killed in any of these encounters, just wounded. These story lines were popular in comics and TV in my day.
Today, the situation is much different. Comics and TV, especially cartoons, depict stories which are definitely Anti-God and pro-Satan. Some examples of these type story lines are:
There are many, many more, but the common denominator is that the story lines of each of these characters depict graphic displays of the Powers of the Occult. For example, when you see objects and people flying through the air, this is called "Levitation", an occultic phenomena possible for an adept in the Magic Arts to perform. However, children and adults are becoming increasingly comfortable with such occultic behavior without ever realizing it. This is called conditioning, a process so critical that the New World Order could not come into reality without it occurring. One of their major goals is "to condition a substantial proportion of the population of the world to accept the New World Order".
Today, we will be discussing several of the current ways of conditioning, beginning with the breakfast cereal, Nabisco Frosted Wheat Squares. A wife of one of our deacons purchased this cereal from the grocery store without looking at the back of the box. The entire back of the cereal box was advertising a new toy called, "Monster In My Pocket". She was disturbed by the appearance of these pocket-size monster toys. They seemed otherworldly, deathly, and demonic. Furthermore, the leader of these demonic creatures was a character called, "Great Beast", whose major feature was that he had 7 heads. Since the Beast of Revelation 13, the Anti-Christ, is pictured as having 7 heads and 10 horns, this Great Beast character immediately caught her attention.
However, there is more, much more. Buried inside the box was a small colored comic book with the same title, "Monster In My Pocket", issued by Harvey Comics, and carrying the Comics Code Authority Seal of Approval. We need to share with you some of the particulars of this story line, to demonstrate how your children are being manipulated and reconditioned, right under your nose.
First, please understand that this story is occurring in another physical dimension, much different than the human dimension. We can see this by the opening statement, "A time not long ago, in a world we dare not enter". A common Satanic/New Age spiritual belief is that there are many dimensions of existence, separate from the human. Further, they believe that all periods of time are constantly still occurring. We see this in all the movies which feature time travel. "Monster In Your Pocket" is occurring in just such a another dimension of time and space.
Two leaders of the World Of Monsters are competing for control of the world's monsters. One leader is named Warlock, and he wants to control the monsters of the world so he can use them to destroy all humanity. The other leader is named Vampire, and he wants to prevent this destruction. Thus, we have the old popular myth presented to us of "White Magic" versus "Black Magic". White Magic seeks to use the powers and knowledge of the Occult for the good of mankind, while Black Magic practitioners seek to use this same power to destroy, kill, and enslave. This myth was created by Satan many thousands of years ago, and he has deceived many, many people. Biblical scholars have long maintained that there simply is no such thing as "White" Magic. Rather, there is only one practice of Satanism; anyone who believes in "White" magic is simply deceived.
Vampire, the leader of the Un-Dead, proposes a plan to Warlock, the leader of all Male Witches. Each one would canvass the earth for 2 weeks, calling supporters for each side. The armies for each side would meet "in the place where evil was spawned"; this place turns out to look a lot like Hell. The side with the greatest number of supporters would be declared the winner, and would be able to do with humanity what he wanted.
Vampire and Warlock immediately begin to visit their evil friends throughout the earth. Vampire is shown appearing only to one evil creature, but Warlock is shown appearing to three:
In keeping with the Biblical account of the Beast (the Anti-Christ) of Revelation 13, where would Warlock have to go to find the Great Beast? Revelation 13:1, states, "As I stood on the sandy beach, I saw a beast coming up out of the sea..." We would expect the Beast to be found in the sea; indeed, Warlock walked along the edge of the Pacific Ocean as he calls out, "Great Beast. King of the Monsters! Warlock calls." Bubbling out of the water, the head, and only the head, of the Beast broke the surface of the Pacific Ocean. Warlock is shown standing on the nose of the Beast, barely above the water. As Warlock stands, facing the eyes of the Beast, I am drawn to the red centers of the eyes of the Beast. Something is very different about the shape of those pupils. Then, I realized that they were drawn in the shape of a hooded Satanist, with his arms outstretched above his head in a fan-shaped manner. Warlock is shown telling the Great Beast that they had "much to discuss".
The story breaks away here to show some of the other Monster Beings which Vampire and Warlock are bringing together, to build support for their respective sides. A study of these characters is interesting, because it reveals those beings which the Satanic writers of this comic believe are allied with Satan:
Finally, the time had arrived for all these assorted creatures of the occult to congregate in "the place where EVIL was born". In the comic book, this place resembled Hell, with fire and confusion everywhere. Vampire has more creatures rallied to his support, but Warlock is treacherous enough to be ready with a spell to be cast upon Vampire and his supporters. What is this spell to accomplish? The spell is supposed to shrink Vampire and his supporters to pocket-size, and it does; however, Warlock miscalculated just enough to also turn himself and all his supporters into Pocket Size Monsters.
Thus, the story ends, at just the right point for Matchbox Toys to be able to sell their collection of "Pocket Size Monsters". However, the damage to a child's mind has already been accomplished. Any child who reads this story would have been exposed to an entire gamut of occultic lore. He would have seen worshippers of Satan cast into a light where they don't look so bad, exemplified by the scene from Hell. Everybody seems to be having a good time. A child would also see spells being cast, with a funny ending. And finally he/she would also be conditioned to believe in a different version of the account of the prophesy in Revelation 13. He will have been conditioned to believe the deception.
But, one of the most fundamental lessons of this story is that we must be close to the Great Tribulation for Satan to begin to tell these stories in comic books, which parallel Biblical prophecy so carefully. However, comic books have been doing just this for almost 10 years now. Parents, if your child loves to read comic books, and is collecting them, read them. Find out just how anti-Christian these comics are. Understand why it is that your child doesn't show the love for Jesus Christ that you want him to show. Remember, we are living in the age of the Mass Media, the only time in history where fulfillment of Jesus' prophetic words in Matthew 24:12 has been possible: "the love of the great body of people will grow cold, because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity." Sin that is so multiplied that it reaches everyone in the nation with overwhelming efficiency. Only today's comic books, magazines, TV shows and movies, and the recording industry fulfill this prophecy completely.
And it is your precious child whose soul is being stolen for Satan. What are you going to do now to protect your child? This is spiritual warfare.
Over 100 years ago, Satan revealed to the Planners for the New World Order that extreme emphasis must be placed upon Education. This generation's children become the next generation's leaders in every area of a society's life. Furthermore, people become very "set in their ways" after they reach a certain point in their life. They resist change particularly in areas of values, morals, and religion. They also teach their values to their children and great-grandchildren. Former Soviet Chairman Kruschev once lamented that Communism had been greatly stymied in its effort to reeducate the children towards the precepts of Communism. What was the source of this problem? Grand-mothers. When the kids would come home from their atheistic public schools, they would climb onto the lap of their kindly old grandmother, and she would tell them of the "good old days" of the Bible. She would virtually deprogram her grandchildren from all the atheistic nonsense they had just learned in school. It is no wonder that the New World Order will not let grandmothers do this to the children in the New World Order. According to their Euthanasia doctrine, kindly old grandmothers and grandfathers will be forced to "exit" to make room for the younger generations.
We will now be examining part of the curricula of a new Elementary-Level Reading and Writing Skills series called "Impressions". Stand by for shocking news.
We will be quoting from two sources for this information: 1. A copy of an article in the AFA Journal (American Freedom Association), (dated January, 1991) supplied by an interested participant in one of our seminars. This AFA article is a reprint of an article in Focus on the Family Citizen Magazine, by Deborah Mendenhall.
2. A copy of the Impressions version of the old Christmas poem, The Twelve Days of Christmas. This version is called, "A Wart Snake In A Fig Tree".
Let us begin with an examination of the Impressions Curricula. This curricula was written for grades One through Six, and is supposedly designed to teach comprehensive language skills, both reading and writing. To accomplish this laudable goal, stories are written for children to test their reading and comprehension skills. To enable the child to retain his/her peak interest, many of these stories are written in the first-person narrative, so that the children will feel that they are a part of the story. So far, so good. What I have just described to you is simply good, fundamental teaching skills.
The problem begins with the type of first-person narratives that are being utilized. These stories are first class occultism, teaching children "how to cast spells". Occultism and witchcraft are woven throughout the entire sequence of stories. But, even here, there is much more. In an effort it desensitize children and to separate them from traditional Christian values, brutal stories are told, many of them in such a way as to pull the child into the story. For example, "first graders are asked whether they would rather be 'crushed by a snake, swallowed by a fish, eaten by a crocodile, or sat on by a rhinoceros.'"
"Second graders see a drawing of a green creature whose long, sharp claws are gripping the head of a small child. In the accompanying poem, the child begs someone to tell him if the creature has been fed." In other words, the child in the poem wants to know if the green creature has actually eaten the child whose head he was seen gripping. These stories are not fit for anyone of any age to read, much less for boys and girls in the First and Second grades. The values of the coming Satanic New World Order demand a population whose individuals have been desensitized to the point of participating in a future holocaust, and who would freely and gladly worship Satan. This is the objective.
But now let us look at Third Grade material. One reader entitled "Under the Sea" looks innocent enough, including an illustration of floating objects: a stove, refrigerator, teddy bear, and a slice of pie. Parents undoubtedly would never know that "the teacher's manual instructs the teacher to ask the children to compose a spell. 'Write and chant a magic spell', the instructions read, 'to make things in the room float'". The final instructions are to make the children create a spell to make the room return to normal. Thus, the child is being taught that such activities of Satanism are normal and healthy, and are something in which they will one day normally participate. These children will never see this Satanism as perverted, unholy, and forbidden activities.
Fourth grade students are read a poem in which they are kidnapped and eaten by monsters.
I reached into my pocket and much to my surprise, something in there grabbed me and pulled me right inside.
I felt its clammy fingers all bony cold and thin; I tried to keep my head out, no use, it all went in.
And that was not the end of it, the pocket seemed so deep and dark and strange and scary I felt I had to weep....
And then my feet were pulled inside and I had disappeared.
Few things frighten a third-grade child more than being taken away from the security and love of Mom and Dad, and thrust into the clutches of a scary monster. Even without a story such as this, children go through a phase where they are afraid of the dark, and of the monsters they are sure await them there. Normally, loving parents can bring their child to the point where they finally realize these monsters in their minds will not harm them. However, permanent mental and spiritual damage can be done when respected authority figures, such as school textbooks and teachers, are deliberately teaching this type material.
But, there is even more. These fourth graders are also taught that monsters exist which can and do eat children. In one poem, entitled, "Welcome", the end result is that a child is eaten.
Fourth graders are also taught to create specific spells in an exercise called "Three Spells". One of the spells it teaches is called "Zap". "This spell creates a blast of lightning that shoots from the catter's hand...It is effective against all living creatures that have no magical defenses." No child who has ever been thrilled by Super-Heroes in comic books and on cartoons would want to be without this spell in his possession, because it would allow him to REALLY be as powerful and exciting as his favorite super-hero. This illustrates the principle of not allowing children to view seemingly harmless incidents of super-natural phenomenon. Many parents would not see the harm in allowing their children to watch heroes zap their opponents with a ray of power emanating from their fingers, even if they know this is occultic representation of real power available to the occultic adept. After all, the parent reasons, it is just TV, not reality.
But, the real danger is that the child has been conditioned to such representations and he subconsciously accepts the premise that such a thing may be possible. Thus, when they are confronted with it at some point in their life they are not shocked by the subject; they accept it readily. And rest assured Satan will choose the time place, and circumstance of this later-life confrontation.
Fifth graders are exposed to a poem in which pigs have acquired the taste for human flesh, and are contemplating attacking human children in their homes, in their own rooms. This, again, is classic occultic terror: threatening people with death that is unspeakably horrible, and a death which will come to them in that one place on earth where they should feel safe and secure -- their own rooms in their parent's house.
Sixth graders read about an abandoned human baby, who is discovered by "three black-robed hags". These hags argue about what they should do to this little baby. One hag proposes to eat the little baby, "A sweet morsel. A tender lamb. I know what I should do".
At every age level, children are being exposed to Satanism in both classic form and in a manner designed to produce absolute terror. Children will be thus pulled away from any and all Christian roots and will be simultaneously prepared for citizenship in the New World Order.
Finally, we would like to share with you the Impressions story, "A Wart Snake In A Fig Tree". This story is a type of the traditional "Twelve Days of Christmas" song. The major impact is delivered by the pictures above the poem, so we will describe them to you. We will also not go through all 12 days, choosing to highlight the key ones.
The accompanying picture shows a very large, intimidating snake curled around a fig tree, with the head sticking out of the snow.
The accompanying picture is truly frightening for an adult, not to mention a little child. The cobwebs are shown as having attached themselves to the legs and supports of a tall wooden kitchen chair. To the far right side of the chair, you can see the trousers and sneakers of a little boy with the feet dangling just above the floor. The little boy has obviously hung himself. A very frightening picture.
The accompanying picture shows a little boy at the extreme right side, crouching in fear. His trousers and sneakers look identical to the little boy pictured on the Third Day, who had hung himself. This boy is covering his eyes with his left hand. He is sitting on the floor beside a movie screen. behind which are an assortment of shadows, both human and non-human. He is very frightened.
The accompanying picture shows seven frightening ghouls standing almost inside a door of a house that is obviously decorated with Christmas wreaths. I was not familiar with the true definition of a ghoul, so I consulted my Webster's New World Dictionary. Ghoul is defined as "evil spirits that rob graves and feed on the flesh of the dead". A wonderful picture to present to sixth graders.
The accompanying picture shows nine black stallions prancing on top of a little boy's body as he lays sleeping. When did our educators come to the place when they decided that it is all right to deliberately give our children nightmares, and still call it education?
The accompanying picture is disturbing, indeed, as it shows eleven lizards in a soup pot, fighting for their lives in the boiling soup.
These instances which we have shared with you constitute child abuse. Our precious children, for whom Jesus Christ had a special affection, are being abused mentally, spiritually, and emotionally with both the Mass Media exploitation of violence and the occult, as exemplified by the comic book story, and by our evolving educational system. The Impressions educational series is not yet in our area; it was introduced in California two years ago and spread to several other Western and Midwestern states. So many parents, led by outraged Christians, protested that the curricula was temporarily pulled back. However, I checked with the Main Office of Waldenbook, and discovered that the curricula is still current and can be ordered. New World Order educators are simply waiting until they feel they can reintroduce Impressions without severe parental backlash.
What has restrained them thus far? Christian parents. I believe what we are seeing here is the curricula which will be quickly in place once the restraining power of the Holy Spirit is removed, with the Rapture of the Church.
That blessed event is close, indeed.
