For all time and eternity, Jesus defined the essence of the unique spiritual danger His Christian followers will experience at the End of the Age. Turn with me to Matthew 24.

Matthew 24 -- Synopsis -- Jesus' disciples had just pointed out to Him the beauty and magnificence of the wonderful Temple Herod was re-building, when Jesus turned around and uttered a most horrible prophecy:  "See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."  Jesus' disciples panicked, because they equated the destruction of the Temple with the destruction of the nation, Israel, and further, equated both destructions with the End of the Age.  [They were not wrong, as events would quickly demonstrate, as both the Temple and Israel were destroyed in A.D. 70.]  As soon as the group reached the Mount of Olives, where they could talk to Jesus privately, they asked Him, "Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?"  Notice they asked Jesus for THE sign, one sign, but He was going to give them much more than they asked [Isn't that just like Jesus?]

Over the course of the rest of the chapter, Jesus did zero in on one particular prophetic sign which would be the most important. Spiritual Deception is the hallmark characteristic of the End of the Age.

Unparalleled Spiritual Deception  [vs 4]; this spiritual deception is so pervasive, and of such great concern, that Jesus reiterated the warning twice more in this chapter, in verses 11 and 24.  Certainly, we are faced with just such spiritual deception today, as ministries thought as Fundamental and right on target, are suddenly seen shifting to support Liberal or even New World Order causes and teach heretical doctrine. In this day, Christians must have their eyes on Scripture -- acting as the Noble Bereans -- and not just on a man or his organization. We must diligently compare everything said and done against Scripture, remembering that organizations and men have suddenly turned bad after years of seeming to be right on target.  As Jesus warned, "He who endures to the end shall be saved". [Matthew 10:22]

The Apostle Paul even said that Antichrist cannot arise until and unless the Christian Church slips deeply into the Abyss of Spiritual Deception!

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first ... " (2 Thessalonians 2:3. KJV)

This prophetic concept is so critically important that we need to look deeper into the meaning of this text.

"Let no one in any way deceive or entrap you, for that day will not come unless the apostasy comes first, that is, the great rebellion, the abandonment of the faith by professed Christians ... (2 Thessalonians 2:3, Amplified Bible Commentary)

What, then, occurs once the Christian Church abandons the One True Faith?

"... and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition..." (Verse 3b, KJV)

"... and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, the Antichrist, the one who is destined to be destroyed..." (Verse 3b, Amplified Bible Commentary)


In other words, the antichrist cannot arise until, and unless, the leaders of the Christian Church at the End of the age will have opened the door for Antichrist. Unity of, and tolerance for, ALL religions of the earth, from Roman Catholics to Muslims, to New Age, to Shamans and Witchdoctors, is clearly the trend we see today as the world rushes to Antichrist and his False Prophet. In the DVD shown left, see revealing film clips, quotes, and footage of world-renowned prominent religious leaders and understand the false ?gospel? they teach. You will hear prominent Christian leaders state false doctrine from their own lips that you would never believe had you not seen them speak.

These leaders' false teachings are fulfilling Matthew 24:24 - "For there shall arise .... false prophets... if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect [Matt 24:24]

Since the unfolding of World War I, one great apostasy after another has flooded upon the world scene. Each wave of Spiritual Liberalism has deceived another group of spiritual seekers. Lately, seekers have been led astray by some variant of New Age doctrine, combined with the "Feel Good" messages of the church growth movement and the Rick Warren's "Purpose Driven Church" movement; sadly, tens of millions have been led astray.

Today we study the latest and most sophisticated, spiritual deception known as "The Shack", published as a book in 2007, has just now opened in theaters with an all-star cast. Put up your Spiritual Discernment shield and take this trip with me.

NEWS BRIEF: 'CHRISTIAN' MOVIE ACCUSED OF PROMOTING IDOLATRY: 'The Shack' critics wonder: Is that God or Oprah?", World Net Daily, 3/5/2017

"Is that supposed to be God? Or is it Oprah Winfrey?"

"Filmgoers will see God the Father portrayed as a large African-American woman and God the Holy Spirit as an Asian woman named 'Sarayu'. Some Christian leaders see it as another manifestation of 'The Shack’s' embrace of universalism and denial of Christianity cloaked in ostensibly Christian marketing ... Among them is Joe Schimmel, pastor of Blessed Hope Chapel in California .... Young’s pretentious caricature of God as a heavy set, cushy, non-judgmental, African-American woman called ‘Papa’ (who resembles the New Age Oprah Winfrey far more than the one true God revealed through the Lord Jesus Christ – Hebrews 1:1-3), and his depiction of the Holy Spirit as a frail Asian woman with the Hindu name, Sarayu, lends itself to a dangerous and false image of God and idolatry', he said."

(NOTE: We have high regard for Pastor Joe Shimmel, as he was one of our expert witnesses in our DVD entitled, "Riddles In Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C.", pictured to the right. Pastor Shimmel was a California rock musician on his way to being a rock star, when the Holy Spirit seized him and shook him and saved him! Pastor Shimmel is an expert on the occult and its damning doctrines and practices. Therefore, when he speaks we all should listen.

MK Ultra Mind Control

One Senior Pastor will not be watching this movie, because of the unusually dark and powerful demons associated with it.

"Blogger and pastor Tim Challies said he would not watch or review the film because he feared it would be an 'unwise and even sinful spiritual decision'. Challies noted the film has a number of 'theological weaknesses', but his primary problem with the movie 'is its visual representation of God' ... Challies believes human representations of God the Father and God the Holy Spirit distort and diminish the understanding of anyone who views them."

Certainly, depicting God the Father as a woman is a serious spiritual breach and aligns this movie with Eastern Mysticism and with both Black Magick and White Magic Witchcraft, and Freemasonry, all of which depict the most powerful god as a woman. Witchcraft, at its pinnacle, is Feminine Goddess Worship. Have you ever wondered why the Statue of Liberty standing in the harbor facing New York City, is a woman? Masonry, whose goals were a Global Government, Economy, and Religion (NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM, New World Order) worships the Lady, Queen Semaramis of Babylonian Witchcraft. Therefore, all Christians should immediately recognize this movie as a depiction of Feminine Witchcraft!

Now, prepare yourself to be shocked beyond belief! When Pastor Tim Challies said, above, that no Christian should even watch this movie, he is right as right can be! Since this movie -- The Shack -- was created in the same Mind Control Manner as the original movie, "Wizard of Oz", the true aim is that of Mind Control over the people who passively sit in the theater to watch the movie unfold!

In the dark realm of Illuminati Mind Control, a very special, and very insidious, type of Mind Control is called "Wizard of Oz"! Listen to a former Satanist tell us the story:

"The history behind the Wizard of Oz programming is interesting. It suggests that the Wizard of Oz has had an important part in the occult world all along. One of the secrets of the Mystery Religions, especially the Egyptian Isis mystery religion, was the ability to use drugs and torture to create multiple personalities. The word, 'Oz', is known to have been used by its author as an abbreviation for Osirus ..."

"The occultist Baum, a member of the Theosophical Society, was inspired by some spirit who gave him the "magic key" to write the Wizard of Oz book which came out in 1900. The story is full of satanic activity and satanic thinking. The story was chosen in the late 1940's to be the basis for the Illuminati/Intelligence community's trauma-based total mind control programming. [Wheeler, Illuminati Formula For Total Mind Control, p. 99]

Thus, "Wizard of Oz" is the demonic form of authorship called, "Automatic Writing", where the demon writes through the medium! A demon actually writes the book.

Later in Illuminati Formula, Wheeler relates the Wizard of Oz to Ozzy Osbourne.

"It is no accident that one of the leading Satanic singers calls himself Ozzy Ozbourne ... A Monarch slave who has been given the basic Alice In Wonderland or Wizard of Oz programming will see objects connected to these story lines in almost every " place in society. [Ibid., p. 347] The many instances of seeing "Oz" or variations thereof, will serve to reinforce the Wizard of Oz programming in the mind of a Monarch. Thus, the popularity of Heavy Metal Rocker, Ozzy Osbourne serves the Illuminati Mind Control programming!

Choosing this name "is no accident", says former Satanist Wheeler in this book, "Illuminati Mind Control". Ozzy certainly knows this fact, and eagerly serves the Illuminati master; key occultists throughout the world certainly know this fact also.


Another serious theological error is that this movie depicts God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as three separate gods, and not the "three in one" truth of Scripture.

" 'Here for the first time in all cinematography has someone attempted to visually portray the Trinity as three separate persons', said De Young. 'It is one thing to draw a picture of the Trinity for a reader’s mind, which may be somewhat obscure, unclear, imprecise and differing in shape from person to person. But once Young determined to bring his characters to film where they take on a precise, clear form, he has crossed the line!”

"De Young criticizes 'The Shack' for giving definite form to the three persons of the Trinity in the book version. However, he says the movie 'raises the issue of idolatry to a whole new level' ... The characters on the screen are pretending to be the Trinity – and that is what an idol is. The Bible forbids making images of the Triune God and asserts that he is beyond anything in the universe, that he is invisible, that no one has ever seen him – or if one does see him he will die! But it seems that Young has done just this.”

Blasphemy is also part of this movie!

"De Young accuses Young and “The Shack” of reaching new depths of blasphemy. By his three persons Young seeks ‘to go where no one else has gone before’ – deeper into idolatry than anyone else professing to be a Christian,” he said. “The ‘final frontier’ will be breached when he or the studio makes figurines in memory of the film.”

What are the personal beliefs of the author of this movie, William Paul Young?

NEWS BRIEF: "This Shack Is On Fire", by Mark Cahill, emailed message, 3/1/2017

"A very controversial movie based on the book 'The Shack' is coming out on March 3rd. This is a very easy statement for me to make: Do not waste your money to go see this movie, do not buy a ticket for a lost person to go with you to see this movie, and do not purchase this book or give this book away to anyone. Yes, I know those are strong words. Here’s another statement that is even stronger: This book is easily one of the worst books written in the history of Christianity. Yes, I wrote that, and I meant that."

* Regarding sin’s punishment:

"The god of The Shack: “I don’t need to punish people for sin. Sin is its own punishment, devouring you from the inside. It’s not my purpose to punish it...” (p. 120).
"The God of the Bible: “And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible” (Isaiah 13:11).

* Regarding the Bible’s truthfulness:

"The god of The Shack: “There are lots of people who think it [Eden] was only a myth. Well, their mistake isn’t fatal. Rumors of glory are often hidden inside of what many consider myths and tales” (p. 134).
"The God of the Bible: “For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty” (2 Peter 1:16).

"The God of the Bible "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (John 1:14, KJV)

Surely, the Truth revealed in Isaiah 59:14 is on full display in this blasphemous movie, "The Shack":

Justice is pushed back,
And righteous behavior stands far away;
For truth has fallen in the city square,
And integrity cannot enter. (Amplified Bible Commentary)

"Truth has fallen in the city square and God's integrity is spurned; therefore, God is justified in His words of judgment:

"And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird." (Rev 18:2, KJV)

"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities." (Rev 18:4-5, KJV)

* Regarding man’s heart:

"The god of The Shack: “[Your heart] is wild and beautiful and perfectly in process” (p. 138).
"The God of the Bible: “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man” (Mark 7:21-23).

* Regarding God’s love

"The god of The Shack: “To force my will on you is exactly what love does not do. ... True love never forces” (pp. 145, 190).
"The God of the Bible: “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth” (Hebrews 12:6). “Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth” (Revelation 2:16).

* Regarding Heaven’s gates:

" The god of The Shack: “Our final destiny is not the picture of Heaven that you have stuck in your head--you know, the image of pearly gates and streets of gold” (p. 177).
" The God of the Bible: “And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass” (Revelation 21:21).

* Regarding the Christian church:

"The god of The Shack: “My church is all about people and life is all about relationships. ... You can’t build it. ... I don’t create institutions--never have, never will” (pp. 178, 179).
" The God of the Bible: “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18).

* Regarding the exclusivity of Christianity -- Universalim, a key doctrine of Antichrist:

"The god of The Shack: “Those who love me come from every system that exists. They were Buddhists or Mormons, Baptists or Muslims, Democrats, Republicans and many who don’t vote or are not part of any Sunday morning or religious institutions. ... I have no desire to make them Christian” (p. 182).
"The God of the Bible: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

* Regarding the Christian walk:

The god of The Shack: “The Bible doesn’t teach you to follow rules. ... Enforcing rules, especially in its more subtle expressions like responsibility and expectation, is a vain attempt to create certainty out of uncertainty. ... That is why you won’t find the word responsibility in the Scriptures. ... because I have no expectations, you never disappoint me” (pp. 197, 203, 206).
The God of the Bible: “Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 4:1-2).

"If ye love me, keep my commandments." (John 14:15)"If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love." (John 15:10)
“In Ephesians 4-6 alone there are more than 80 specific rules and obligations that believers are exhorted to keep.”

* Regarding condemnation:

"The god of The Shack: “I don’t do humiliation, or guilt, or condemnation” (p. 223).
" The God of the Bible: “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19). “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God” (Romans 3:19). “Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 11:27). “My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation” (James 3:1). “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18).”

James De Young states:
“Indeed, the need for Christ to die a sacrificial death for people's sins is dissipated and eventually erased. But the greatest danger is that universal reconciliation redefines who God is by insisting that the attribute of God's love trumps his other attributes of justice, holiness and righteousness. Love limits his other attributes. In so doing, some attributes are not fully expressed or perfect. In this way God ceases to be God. Instead we have a man-created, man-centered god.’”

On this subject of God Attributes, we posted an article warning of this type of redefinition of God, in 1992, entitled, "The Perfections of God". We encourage you to read this short article, because we wrote it for the express purpose of fighting this heresy that God is only Love, or God's Love overwhelms all His other attributes (Perfections). This heresy is going to cast hundreds of millions of Western people into eternal Hell. "The Shack" movie rests upon this heretical foundation.

And, millions of christians are falling for this monumental lie!


"The truth of many a matter is found in exactly the opposite direction of the public rhetoric".

Cutting Edge has been preaching this reality since November, 2001, when we first realized the incredible propaganda campaign which had abruptly sprung forth following the attacks of 9/11. We wrote an article on this subject (NEWS1558), based solely on the concept of political propaganda. However, since posting this article, we have come to realize that the most incredible deception occurring in this country -- and throughout the world today -- is spiritual deception. This spiritual deception has taken many forms during this End of the Age, including the promotion of Roman Catholicism as a genuine Christian Church, promoting the Reverend Sun Myung Moon as a legitimate spiritual leader (a Messiah figure to many), and in the Rick Warren "Purpose Driven Church",and in deceitful movies like "The Shack"!

Bible prophecy forewarned us to expect spiritual apostasy (deviation from Biblical doctrine) at the End of the Age. Listen:

"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)

Literally, this passage means that every false, apostate christian leader is opening the door to the appearance of Antichrist. Without this kind of apostasy, Antichrist could not come to the world scene. While the Christian Church has seen a great deal of apostasy from many quarters, nothing has caught fire so greatly than various Liberal, apostate church leaders over the past 40 years.

And, now, "The Shack" book and the movie are created from top to bottom with spiritual lies so great that anyone who believes them will find themselves too late on the Broad Road which Jesus warned will lead directly to Hell.

Don't let this eternal tragedy happen to you!

The very appearance at this time is another sign that the End of the Age is upon us, and that the appearance of Antichrist is very close.

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.
