THE CUTTING EDGE
Copyright © 2011 Cutting Edge Ministries. All rights reserved. See full copyright notice below.
For years now, ever since the US invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003, the United States has repeatedly beat the war drums against a supposed Iranian nuclear threat. The gist of this campaign is that Iran is nearing completion of a nuclear power program which is really designed to develop a nuclear warhead capability; if foreign powers do not act soon, Iran will have the nuclear warheads in their possession and will threaten the entire Middle East, including Israel.
This propaganda campaign ignores several critically important facts:
1. Iran has possessed nuclear weapons since at least mid-2002, according to a Russian general. Listen:
NEWS BRIEF: "RUSSIAN GENERAL CONFIRMS IRAN HAS NUCLEAR WEAPONS!", Stratfor Intelligence, Week of June 4, 2002.
A Russian general's statement about Iran's nukes fails to register with media. Sometime a slip of the tongue is so incredible that no amount of doctoring can explain it. And sometimes a slip of the tongue is as intentional as could be. Take an appearance by Russian Deputy Chief of Staff Gen. Yuri Baluyevsky. He gave a briefing on Friday in Moscow during the Bush-Putin summit and was asked about whether Iran actually fired the Shihab-3 intermediate-range missile in a successful test earlier this month. The second question was whether Iran can threaten Israel, Russia or the United States with its nuclear and missile programs.
"Then the Russian general took a surprise turn: 'Now, as to whether or not Iran has tested something like that. Iran does have nuclear weapons,' Baluyevsky said. 'Of course, these are non-strategic nuclear weapons. I mean these are not ICBMs with a range of more than 5,500 kilometers and more."
Now this is shocking news, indeed! This Russian general has just confirmed -- in June, 2002 -- that Iran has nuclear warheads and theater missiles with which to deliver them!
Iran bought these nuclear warheads "off the shelf from Pakistan" approximately two decades ago. Recently, the Pakistani scientist known as the "Father of the Bomb" for Pakistan, was stripped of his position and sent into disgrace for his admitted part in transferring weapons technology to other nations in the region.
2. Russia has taken on the mantle of protector of Iran (NEWS2003, "Russian Checkmate In The Middle East?" and NEWS2014, "President Bush Seems To Be Driving Iran (Persia) Into The Arms of Russia and Europe, Just As Prophecy Foretells".
3. America has been threatening Iran with the fires of war ever since we conquered Baghdad in April, 2003, only to back down each time.
While I was serving in U.S. Army Intelligence and stationed at a Pentagon-level facility Okinawa, Japan, for nearly 3 years, I learned the thinking of a commander who has been given responsibility for attacking a fortified enemy force. Such a commander will seek to create an invading force as militarily superior to the enemy force as possible. If it is in his power to do so, this commander will not attack until he has gathered a force vastly superior to the force of the enemy.
Not just a little superior -- vastly superior.
Therefore, if President Bush were actually going to invade Iran, he should have done so in April or May, 2003. At that time, public support for his "easy Iraq victory" was at an all-time high, all American aircraft carriers who had supported the March 20 invasion were still on duty, all air force planes supporting the invasion were still on hand, American ground forces had not bogged down in Iraq yet, and neither Russia nor China had yet come to Iran's aid diplomatically and militarily.
Therefore, the fact that President Bush did not invade Iran when he held all the right cards in his hand speaks to the probability that he never intended to attack Iran in the first place. Jesus spoke of both "Wars" and "Rumors of Wars" being prevalent in the Last Days. Iraq and Afghanistan have provided the "Wars" portion of this prophecy while the rhetoric about Iran has provided the "Rumors of Wars".
Finally, remember that Iran seems to be protected by prophecy against the kind of attack which would destroy either its government or its armed forces. Modern Iran is Ancient Persia.
Persia is foretold in Ezekiel 38-39 as being one of the countries which will march against Israel in the Latter Days. The government in control at that time has to be anti-West and anti-Israel, precisely as it is today. If the United States were to successfully overthrow the present regime, we would institute a puppet government; this government will be pro-Israel and pro-West. Therefore, we expect that current Iranian government is protected by the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39 from being overthrown; we may launch a limited attack against their facilities, but it seems to us that the government will be protected from actually being overthrown. Iran may suffer an attack from either Israel or America, but her government will not be overthrown, nor her armed forces destroyed.
To reiterate, America's foreign policy is driving Russia and Iran into a tight alliance with each other, precisely the kind of alliance you would expect from two nations who will one day lead combined armies to an attack on Israel (Read NEWS2014 for full details).
Now, let us consider the prophetic role Russia is to play in this Ezekiel 38-39 invasion of Israel. Russia, the prophesied leader of the "Gog-Magog" armies marching against Israel in Ezekiel 38-39, is suddenly on the ascendancy in world and Middle Eastern affairs. Russia is assembling the key nations prophesied to march with her.
Dr. Chuck Missler demonstrates this prophetic reality quickly taking shape in his DVD, "The Magog Invasion".
Since Ezekiel 38-39 identifies Russia as the leader and the equipper of the forces named to accompany her military in the march against Israel, if the Western military can successfully penetrate Russian defenses in an attack against Iran's nuclear facilities, the reputation of the Russian military capability would be fatally compromised. No leader of the countries identified as marching with Russia would have the confidence that the Russian military can defeat Israel.
Therefore, as we have stated so many times before, there will be NO attack against Iran, either by Israel or the United States, or in combination.
We were not surprised, therefore, when Russia stepped into this fray to be the protector of Iran!
Russia Assumes Responsibility For Protecting Iran From Attack
On April 12, 2003, just days after Coalition Forces had taken Baghdad, Russian President Putin strode to a podium and drew a huge line in the sand against President Bush. No more, said Putin, no more will we allow you to invade a country and achieve a "Regime Change". With the Presidents of Germany and France behind him, Putin told President Bush to back off.
At the time, we wondered how a great power like Russia would back up its bravado with action, in order to keep America from taking action which would relegate Russia to backwater status.
Let us begin with the original news story.
NEWS BRIEF: "No strike on other countries, Putin warns US", Sify News, April 12, 2003.
"Saint Petersburg -- Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday warned the US-led coalition not to attack other countries under the pretext of promoting capitalist and democratic values after having defeated Iraq's dictatorial regime. 'We are not going to export capitalist, democratic revolutions,' the Russian leader told reporters as rumours in Washington allege that some elements of the US administration are mulling launching military operations against other Middle Eastern states. 'If we do, we're going to end up on a slippery slope to non-ending military conflicts. We can't let that happen,' Putin said at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and French President Jacques Chirac after holding talks with them."
At the time Putin issued his strong warning, he had positioned Russian naval units on station in exactly the right areas the U.S. was planning to effect the next "regime change". The United States was planning to effect "regime changes" through military action in the Persian Gulf region -- Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia -- and on the Korean Peninsula.
This naval deployment in place at the time Putin made his remarks backed up his warning at that time. Therefore, we were highly interested in checking daily news events during the Summer and Fall, 2003. Even though Bush officials were constantly breathing dire threats against Syria and Iran, our forces took no action.
Time after time over the past seven years, Cutting Edge has stood firm in our insistence that prophecy protected both Iran and Russian military credibility from Western attack. On many occasions during this long period, we resisted the dramatic story lines that war against Iran was imminent because we were stationing all aircraft carrier groups in waters off her shores.
We endured hostile emails, telling us how wrong we were to say that Western forces would never attack Iran. After all, the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of Israel were openly and continuously verbally assaulting Iran. Mass Media had picked up these many warnings and were creating an open hysteria. People were demanding to know how we could be so sure of our position, when every institution in which people place faith were screaming attack, attack, attack.
The world now stands at the beginning of 2011, and there has been no physical military attack -- either by Israel or by the United States. Finally, a Western leader who has the position and the security clearance to know the plans by the highest leaders in the world, has stepped forward to declare there will be no attack on Iran!
NEWS BRIEF: "Analysis: No strike at Iran as Pardo takes Mossad baton", by Herb Kenan, The Jerusalem Post, January 7, 2011
"Meir Dagan formally took leave of the Mossad on Thursday, passing the reins to Tamir Pardo ... Pardo is not entering a vacuum; rather, he climbs to the top of the intelligence community pyramid with working assumptions already in place on a number of issues, notably including the following:
"Although a nuclear Iran poses an existential threat to Israel, at this time a military attack on its nuclear facilities would be counterproductive and would exact an enormous diplomatic, economic and military price."
The enormous price of any attack against Iran is exactly what we have been saying for seven years!
"Iran’s leadership, analysts say, would use an Israeli attack to unify the ethnically fragmented country around the government, and Teheran would leave the Non-Proliferation Treaty with international justification, saying that it had been attacked by a country with nuclear capability and now needed to gain similar capability to defend itself."
"The Iranians – who are largely responsible for building up Hizbullah
to such an extent that today it has more firepower than 90 percent of the countries
of the world – would “call in their chips,” and the organization
would launch massive rocket attacks against Israel’s home front."
"Meir Dagan formally took leave of the Mossad on Thursday, passing the reins to Tamir Pardo, with Israel facing a strategic situation vastly different from when he was appointed in August 2002. While the Palestinian terrorism that was running rampant when Dagan took office during the height of the second intifada has since largely been brought to heel, Hizbullah is much stronger than it was then ... Pardo is not entering a vacuum; rather, he climbs to the top of the intelligence community pyramid with working assumptions already in place on a number of issues, notably including the following:
A strike on Iran
Although a nuclear Iran poses an existential threat to Israel, at this time a military attack on its nuclear facilities would be counterproductive and would exact an enormous diplomatic, economic and military price. Iran’s leadership, analysts say, would use an Israeli attack to unify the ethnically fragmented country around the government, and Teheran would leave the Non-Proliferation Treaty with international justification, saying that it had been attacked by a country with nuclear capability and now needed to gain similar capability to defend itself.
"The Iranians – who are largely responsible for building up Hizbullah to such an extent that today it has more firepower than 90 percent of the countries of the world – would 'call in their chips', and the organization would launch massive rocket attacks against Israel’s home front."
"It is probable some of the Hizbullah attacks would come from Syria, which means that Damascus would be drawn into the conflict. Hamas and Islamic Jihad would also join the fray in a battle that would not be waged against tanks and planes, but against the civilian population."
Iran and the US
"There is no significant difference in Israeli and US intelligence assessments regarding Iran. The major difference is in the perception of the danger. While Israel sees a nuclear Iran as an existential threat, the US doesn’t perceive Iran as an existential threat to the US. ... it is not concerned Iran will blow up Boston. Israel, however, takes the Iranian leadership at its word when it talks about wanting to rid the world of the 'Zionist entity', and does not rule out the possibility that the Iranians would use the bomb against Israel at some point."
In fact, the only nation in modern history who has actually used the atomic bombs once they were added to its arsenal is the United States! We immediately attacked two Japanese cities. Nearly six decades later, American forces launched a powerful invasion of Iraq using Depleted Uranium weaponry - one of the most insidious nuclear weapons in existence.
No other nation who has obtained nuclear weapons has ever used them. And, this includes Iran. As we demonstrated, above, Iran obtained nuclear weapons already created from Pakistan in 2001-2002. She then bought theater nuclear-capable missiles from North Korea. She has not used them yet and she never will, at least until the Tribulation Period, where Joel 2 seems to foretell nuclear war in the Middle East.
Every nation other than America understands that, if she uses nuclear weapons against another nation, she will suffer a lethal counterstrike by the nuclear weapons of other nations.
Reiterating again, Iran will not use her nuclear weapons against another nation. But, America has, in three different wars since we perfected the atomic bomb. (Read full details in NEWS2120, entitled, "NUCLEAR ARMED IRAN VS. NUCLEAR ARMED AMERICA -- WHOM SHOULD THE WORLD FEAR?")
Once again, God has allowed Cutting Edge to properly discern a grave situation in which other people and organizations and ministries were deceived. We are not trying to heap credit upon ourselves, for it was God Who opened the doors of understanding and Who provided me with the formula by which I was to determine events which would occur at the End of the Age. I received this insight during prayer in late, 1989.
From the beginning of my research, when I felt the Holy Spirit driving me to research the occult side of the plan to produce Antichrist, I realized that Satan is a liar; therefore, how would I recognize when parts of his plan are for real and when they were false? I concluded that the only safe way to proceed would be to adopt the practice of mariner captains in the days before sophisticated navigation equipment.
When they were bringing their vessel in to port, they would select three (3) distinct physical markers they could line up to direct them to the dock. Two markers would not be reliable, because you can incorrectly line up any two points; only lining up three points provided the mariner captain safety as he brought his vessel into the dock.
Therefore, I decided to always line up three (3) points in considering world events. They are:
1) The specific point of the Illuminati Plan
2) Bible doctrine
3) Bible prophecy
If a specific part of the Illuminati plan does not line up with Biblical doctrine and prophecy, I discard it and never report it. Many such parts of the plan I have rejected on that basis. I have never taken their word for anything!! But, the exciting part was that when I adopted this philosophy, I realized a very exciting truth: the parts of the Illuminati plan which do line up, when enacted, very precisely fulfills God’s prophecy, in multiple dozens of instances. Their plan is the greatest proof of the Omnipotence and Omnipresence of our Jesus!
Cutting Edge applies this formula to everything which is occurring in the world today.
Truly, the End of the Age is upon us! 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.

God bless you.
