---------- Inspiration For the Week-------The terrible death of a Liberal churchwoman who refused to believe in Biblical separation and in Biblical warnings to not be in love with this world's values

Mrs. Phoebe Palmer, the noted and devoted holiness evangelist, is the authority for the following:

E____ had a friend who did not believe that the injunctions, "Come out from among them and be ye separate," "Be not conformed to the world," and kindred passages, have anything to do with the external appearance of the Christian. She was united in church fellowship with a denomination which does not recognize these things as important, and she had been heard to speak contemptuously of those contracted views that would induce one, in coming out in a religious profession, to make such a change in external appearance as to excite observation.

We should be far from favoring an intimation that E 's friend was hypocritical; she was only what would be termed a liberal-minded professor, and was no more insincere than thousands who stand on what would be termed an ordinary eminence in religious profession. The wasting consumption gradually preyed upon the vitals of this friend, and E____, who lives in a distant city, went to see her. E____, though not at the time as fully devoted as she might have been, was concerned to find her friend as much engaged with the vanities of the world and as much interested about conforming to its customs as ever, and she ventured to say, "I did not suppose you would think so much about these things now."

Her friend felt somewhat indignant at the remark, and observed, "I do not know that I am more conformed to the world than yourself, and the denomination to which you belong regards these things as wrong, but our people do not think that religion has anything to do with these little matters."

The hand of withering disease continued relentlessly laid on E 's friend, and as she drew nearer eternity her blissful hopes of immortality and eternal life seemed to gather yet greater brightness. Her friends felt that her piety was more elevated than that of ordinary attainment. Again and yet again her friends gathered around her dying couch to hear her last glowing expressions and to witness her peaceful departure. Such was her composure that she desired her shroud might be in readiness so that she might, before the mirror, behold her body arrayed for its peaceful resting place.

Her friend E____ was forced to leave the city a day or two before her dissolution, and called to take her final farewell. "We shall not meet again on earth," said the dying one, "but doubtless we shall meet in heaven. On my own part I have no more doubt than if I were already there, and I cannot but hope that you will be faithful unto death. We shall then meet." They then bade each other a last adieu.

The moment at last came when death was permitted to do his fearful work. The devoted friends had again gathered around the bed of the dying fair one to witness her peaceful exit. Respiration grew shorter and shorter and at last ceased, and they deemed the spirit already in the embrace of blissful messengers who were winging it to paradise. A fearful shriek! and in a moment they beheld her that they had looked upon as the departed sitting upright before them with every feature distorted.

Horror and disappointment had transformed that placid countenance so that it exhibited an expression indescribably fiendish. "I can't die!" vociferated the terrified, disappointed one. "I won't die!" At that moment the door opened and her minister entered. "Out of the door, thou deceiver of men!" she again vociferated, fell back and was no more. ("Dying Testimonies of the Saved and the Unsaved", by Rev. S.B. Shaw, p. 128-130)

As the world spins to its prophetic conclusion, how is your heart towards the things and material possessions of this world? Are you too in love with this world in your inner heart of hearts? Are you refusing to separate yourself from things which you know displease the Holy Spirit? If this is you, please get right with Jesus right now, before it is too late for you.

* "Secret Mysteries of America's Beginnings: Volume One -- The New Atlantis" -- DVD -- VHS -- Now in-stock and shipping!

Come join us as Secret Mysteries of America’s Beginnings takes us through the dark tunnel of time to a time when America was born. This video takes the mystery out of America's history! Watch in fascination as the camera canters candidly through our early periods. Learn why Washington D.C. is built on the 77th meridian? Learn why the Revolutionary War cities were really built in perfect alignment with Stonehenge? Learn why ancient pagan signs and symbols hide beneath our nation’s infrastructure. Learn the secrets behind their esoteric meanings? Learn of their “ancient hope” of establishing a democratic commonwealth that would one day be embraced by all nations.

If America was founded as a ‘Christian’ nation only, why then are many of its symbols based on purely Pagan traditions? To find the answer, we follow the journey of secret societies from England to the New World and learn their ancient hopes: to rebuild the lost empire of Atlantis.

Our nation’s key founding father was Benjamin Franklin, and he spearheaded the effort to implement the total Baconian Plan. Ben Franklin worked closely with British Intelligence, starting in 1758. He made several trips to London in the years before the American Revolution to work with British Intelligence to "plot the future of America". B.I. gave him two working code names: "72" and "Moses".

Assigning "Moses" to Franklin is especially appropriate, given the role Ben was to play in the outworking of the Baconian Plan. What did Moses do in Israel's history? He led his people out of control of Egypt. What did Ben Franklin do in America's history? He led his people out of control of Great Britain!

Franklin met with British Intelligence leaders using the infamous Hellfire Club as the cover. The brothel and drinking activities of Hellfire Club provided perfect cover for Franklin's meeting with B.I. No one ever knew what was going on in the backrooms and subterranean rooms of the Club.

Does this mean Franklin sold out the principles of the American Revolution? The answer is "NO", but if there was any treason going on, it was on the part of the Masonic leaders of British Intelligence as they worked in exact opposition to the foreign policy of King George III, because they were committed to the Baconian Master Plan to spin America off from Britain's control so she could become the "New Atlantis".

We encourage you to buy and study this 2 hour, 50 minute video, for we are convinced it is THE message people need to hear today, at this critical moment in our history. We agree that America had strong Christian influences during the time of the Revolution, but just as a coin has two sides, so does this National Heritage debate. This "flip side" of the coin reveals that our Founding Fathers in 1776 precisely carried out the Baconian Plan of 1590! Freemasons held the reins of power, a fact King George III never learned during his lifetime, as his British Intelligence Masons silently worked for the American cause, not his, in order that the "New Atlantis" be properly spun off from England.

One of the major reasons Americans of all religious beliefs and political persuasions cannot see the current leadership and current events for who and what they are, is because they begin with the wrong mindset. That frame of mind has been formed which says that America has a Christian Heritage only, and that this current President is just the latest in a long line of Christian-values Presidents.

Thus, Americans cannot see President Bush and his policies clearly. This video is intended to change that national mindset.

* "Blood On The Altar: THE Elite Society Beyond Freemasonry!"

This informative book is now back in-stock! What's Beyond Freemasonry? That is the question investigators have pondered for decades. Craig Heimbacher furnishes fascinating answers as he probes deeply into the sordid arena of "Ordo Templi Orientis" -- OTO - the higher, more secret society to which elite Masons "graduate" upward.
This book pursues and reveals the "shape-shifting" nature of OTO. Key members of both the Left and Right wings of political parties throughout the world obediently serve this terrible Satanic master. This author reveals the "Command Process" that guides these elite political leaders. The "Law of Thelma" is the guiding principle operating behind the visible outer organization.

This book is recommended to all who want to clearly understand why events occur the way they do and why key leadership acts the way they do. This society demands its followers -- key public leaders of our time -- develop a method of concealment unprecedented in history, including lying, subterfuge and simple misdirection.

This trail leads from the US government, to NASA, to the Hollywood Film Industry, to Right-wing Patriotic Groups, to New Age Movement, to the current obsession with the Kabbala.

The OTO has marched from triumph to triumph following its "Great Beast" founder, Aleister Crowley. This group has successively cast a "Thelemic spell" over the entire population of Western Society. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1093

Knowing Antichrist When He Arises

* "Antichrist & A Cup of Tea DVD -- 4/Pack DVD Set"

I was highly skeptical that anyone could know the precise identity of Antichrist before he arose on the world scene. Can the saints of God in Christ recognize the AntiChrist now? Could this truly be possible? Yes! Tim Cohen reveals hard evidence in THE ANTICHRIST AND A CUP OF TEA DVD Set. Cohen presents his evidence in three DVD's, while the fourth DVD contains his interview with God's Learning Channel

This DVD set contains all the key points of his book plus significant new material. Since DVD's retail for between $20-25 each, getting a 4-DVD set for only $69.95 represents a great value.

While Cutting Edge is a pre-Tribulation Rapture ministry, we heartily recommend this DVD set, for the material Cohen presents to prove that Antichrist will come from the House of Windsor is precious. Runs 5 Hrs, 46 minutes!

Also available as 443-page book

Don't be confused that one DVD says "DVD 5", as Cohen specially picked these four DVD's out of a much larger set.


Available in original book -- It was with great doubt that I began reading this well-documented 443 page book. However, by the time I was two-thirds of the way through the book, I was convinced that Antichrist would come from the British Monarchy, from the House of Windsor. Tim Cohen, a Messianic Jew, provides overwhelming evidence, including heavy Antichrist symbolism, that proves his point beyond reasonable doubt. Once you read this book, you will be checking out the travel itineraries of key world leaders when they travel to and from Washington, D.C.!!


* "AntiChrist -- An Alternate Ending" - DVD

Modern Fundamental Bible Scholars are united on the doctrine that Antichrist will come from a "Revived Roman Empire". Most assume that means he will come from Western Europe -- which is the Western "leg" of the Ancient Roman Empire.
When studying prophecies concerning the AntiChrist, we should remember that the Roman Empire had an eastern leg that, in fact, survived the western leg by a thousand years!

There may be far more relevance to Iraq and the mid-east region than is commonly recognized in most books and articles on end-time prophecy. All of us tend to equate the Roman Empire with Western Europe. However, we may have been subject to myopia by overlooking an important fact. The Roman Empire had an eastern leg. Could Antichrist come from that Eastern portion?

While Cutting Edge does not entirely subscribe to this possibility, we do recognize that Missler has done some very strong and thorough Biblical Exegesis to arrive at this possible conclusion. We also continue to disagree with Missler on his politics. But, this DVD is thought-provoking!


---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------

DVD or VHSI. World news this past week was again dominated by threats and counter-threats over the supposed dire threat Iran posed to the world through her uranium enrichment plans. "Rumors of Wars" were certainly flying!-- From both sides.

The Bush Administration continued its tired tirade against Iran; in this first report, Secretary of State Rice took Iran to task on the lines which have proven to be such a popular theme for the President -- the "War on Terror".

NEWS BRIEF: "Rice: Iran is terrorism 'banker' ", BBC News, 17 February 2006

"The US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, has continued her diplomatic offensive against Iran. She has accused Tehran of being the central banker for terrorism around the world and working with Syria to destabilise the Middle East."

What a joke this line of criticism truly is! Nothing has destabilized the Middle East more than the dismemberment of Saddam's regime in Iraq! Whatever you might think of Saddam -- I personally think he was exceedingly repugnant -- the fact remains that Bush Administration policy has torn the country apart into sectarian violence and civil war, and will one day plunge the entire Middle East into the cauldron of fire which will erupt throughout the whole world, and which will become known as World War III.

Rice continues her verbal assault. But, notice how she slightly moves the focus of immediate military action to the more long-term covert line of action, which would subvert the Iranian hardline regime from within. If Washington follows this long-term plan of subversion from within, we may never see an attack on Iranian facilities.

"On Wednesday, she announced that the US administration would request an extra $75m from Congress to promote democratic change inside Iran ... However, she stressed it was not just Tehran's nuclear policies which were concerning, but also what she described as its support for terrorism. Iran, she alleged, was the central banker for terrorism around the world and was working with Syria to destabilise the Middle East."

Rice's next statement might be seen as thoroughly hypocritical, as the Pentagon continues to reel from fresh torture and sexual humiliation pictures now being shown throughout the Islamic world. Listen to Secretary Rice sound like a pious preacher from her pulpit.

"Ms Rice also again criticised Tehran's record on human rights and democracy." (Ibid.)

France stepped up the international pressure.

NEWS BRIEF: "France steps up rhetoric on Iran", BBC News, 16 February 2006

"France has for the first time explicitly accused Iran of using its nuclear programme as a cover for clandestine military nuclear activity. Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy told French TV no civilian programme could explain Iran's activity ... But Tehran insists the programme is solely for peaceful purposes. Iran's chief nuclear negotiator sharply denied the charges made by Mr Douste-Blazy. 'Contrary to all the propaganda against us, we are not seeking a nuclear bomb, since we are a signatory to (the nuclear) Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)', he said on French radio. 'We are a responsible country - it is Western propaganda that keeps on saying that Iran is seeking a bomb, but it is not true'."

This statement by the Iranian chief nuclear negotiator is entirely correct: Iran is not now pursuing a nuclear bomb from its own program because she has possessed them since early 2002, having bought them "off the shelf" from Pakistan in the same manner as Saudi Arabia bought her nuclear bombs (NEWS1660)!!

Therefore, this international effort to paint Iran as a threat to mankind because she is "seeking" an atomic capability is sheer propaganda. What is the reason for this propaganda? To move the peoples of the Middle East into the next step -- the conflagration designed to produce the beginning of World War III.

Iran poked fun at Washington's ability to destroy her targets. Some of her points are perfectly valid; we have reported many of them in the past, and have wondered whether these are the practical reasons President Bush has been threatening to attack Iran since August, 2003, but has pulled back each time.

NEWS BRIEF: "US making a mockery of itself with threats of military action on Iran", Islamic Republic News Agency, February 16, 2006

"Last week the Bush administration hinted at the use of the military option in case Iran refuses to abandon its nuclear program. '...selective surgical strikes to all-out attacks by the West and the Zionist regime have all been mentioned as options open for dealing with Iran,' wrote the English-language Kayhan International ... The fact is, events in the world show that the US is more and more becoming a paper tiger ... Tehran rightly responded to Bush's threat of military action on the country last Monday by dismissing it as mere 'tough words'."

Iran then lists the difficulties the United States is going to encounter if she ever actually attacks.

* "Iran is a natural fort surrounded by higher-than-the-Alps mountain ranges and two massive moats called the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf."

* "Its armed forces are the best equipped, trained and experienced in the region."

This Iranian editorial then notes that the US did actually invade Iraq, but then stops to note the disaster that invasion has turned out to be.

"Lack of effective logistics and organization could have bogged down the US forces in Iraq for months by its own admission, had Saddam's army decided to actually put up a fight ... It is clear that even though Saddam did not put up a fight, US forces are stuck in Iraq and are losing a war they thought they could easily win ... If the US cannot even win the war in Iraq, its chances of winning in Iran are practically nil."

"Iranian defensive capabilities are a question mark for the West. Years of innovation and industrial scale self-sufficiency initiatives have meant Iran can manufacture almost all it needs to defend itself', the editorial said."

Indeed, the Iranian military is light years ahead of where Saddam's forces were in terms of military capability before the invasion. Cutting Edge readers should remember that, in the first 2 1/2 weeks after the invasion, Saddam's' forces gave the Americans and the British everything they could handle. In fact, some counterattacks pushed the Coalition Forces backward a short ways. Not until American armor outflanked Saddam's forces in a mad dash to Baghdad did the Americans taste victory. And, in one of the greatest strategic retreats imaginable, Saddam's forces melted away rather than defend the city.

Iran could not have been impressed with the American military capability from these weeks of initial fighting.

Last week, Russia again warned the United States not to actually launch an attack.

NEWS BRIEF: "Russia Warns U.S. Against Striking Iran", Breitbart News, February 16, 2006

"Russia's top military chief on Thursday warned the United States against launching a military strike against Iran ... With tension mounting over Iran's nuclear programs, Gen. Yuri Baluyevsky, the chief of Russia's general staff, warned the United States against attacking Iran ... He said that while Iran's military potential cannot compare to the United States', 'it is hard to predict how the Muslim world will respond to the use of force against Iran. This may stir the whole world, and it is crucial to prevent anything like that', Baluyevsky was quoted as saying."

Of course, the entire purpose of our invasion of Iraq, of our torture and sexual humiliation of Islamic prisoners in Abu Ghraib, at Guantanamo Bay and in prisons throughout Iraq and Afghanistan, and the blatant use of death-dealing Depleted Uranium Munitions, is to deliberately incite the entire Muslim world to war against the West. Throughout the conflict in Iraq, we have given this tactic the term, "Blood In The Streets" strategy, whereby Muslim leaders would be deliberately provoked to launch a war against the West, even though they know they cannot win. Therefore, stimulating the entire Islamic world to war against the West IS most definitely the plan.

Remember that Russian President Putin bluntly warned America on April 12, 2003, that he would not tolerate more attacks to produce another "Regime Change" in the Middle East (Read NEWS1802). At this moment in history, we might be well to review the exact wording of Putin's warnings -- with France's Chirac and Germany's Schroeder at his side.

"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."

If American and/or Israel successfully attacks Iranian nuclear facilities after a warning like this one, the international credibility of Russia will be torn to shreds. Further, through her vastly superior Scalar Electromagnetic Wave and Quantum Weapons technology, Russia has the capability of stopping any aircraft or missiles into Iranian airspace. Only Israel has the capability of defeating Russia's Scalar and Quantum Weapons technology; if the Jewish state uses this technology to successfully attack Iran, will the Russian leadership be so angry that they will initiate the attack of Israel as foretold in Ezekiel 38-39? We address this possibility in our recent article, NEWS2097).

However, some top Russian military officers view an American strike against Iran as "inevitable".

NEWS BRIEF: "Russian Top Brass Does not Rule Out Use of Military Force Against Iran", MosNews, 2/16/2006

"Russia’s chief of staff has not ruled out the use of military force against Iran. 'Will the events lead to a choice of force?', he said speaking to journalists on Thursday, according to RIA-Novosti news agency. 'I do not rule this out but a decision by force is not the best'. On Tuesday, Russian political expert Mikhail Delyagin said the United States would launch a missile attack against Iran this summer already. 'Lately the demand of U.S. military actions against Iran has become really obvious', he said."

"Last week, the senior Russian parliamentary official and leader of the ultranationalist Liberal Democratic Vladimir Zhirinovsky said a U.S. attack against Iran was 'inevitable' ... 'The date for the strike is already known — it is the election day in Israel (March 28). It is also known how much that war will cost', Zhirinovsky said."

This date (March 28) for a Western attack on Iran has consistently been bantered around, and may actually be true. However, as we have repeatedly stated, Israel is the key to the timing of world events, both in the Illuminati Plan and in Biblical Prophecy. Therefore, we have concluded that this war will not begin until Israel is ready to go to war against her Palestinian enemy -- and that means that Israel must complete her withdrawal of the 80,000 settlers from the West Bank. Cutting Edge has consistently maintained that, once Israel does completely remove her settlers, war can begin; conversely, until that withdrawal is complete, the attack on Iran will not occur.

With this understanding, let us continue on to our next segment.

VHS or DVDII. After announcing last week that withdrawal from the West Bank was official Israeli government policy, Prime Minister Olmert set his sights on removing small settlements right away.
The withdrawal from the West Bank seems to be officially underway.

NEWS BRIEF: "West Bank withdrawal 'within days': Acting PM orders Israeli forces to remove Jewish enclave near Hebron", WorldNetDaily, February 17, 2006

"JERUSALEM – Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has directed Israeli forces to evacuate within days a small Jewish enclave alongside the biblical city of Hebron in the West Bank and to use all force necessary during the evictions ... The order follows Olmert's announcement this week his administration will seek to withdraw from most of the West Bank, which borders major Israeli cities and the country's international airport. Olmert's directions fueled speculation by critics the Israeli official is carrying out isolated evictions of settlers as a tactic to win leftist votes ahead of next month's elections."

At this point, I wish to point out that the Illuminati already knows the outcome of the March 28 elections. Remember the revelation from Russian dictator, Josef Stalin, on how an Illuminati government wins elections. Stalin said, "He who casts his vote counts for nothing, but he who counts the votes counts for everything".

Besides this obvious ability to steal elections, every single major party leader is fully in support of the withdrawals: Olmert of the Kadima Party; Netanyahu of Likud Party; Peretz of the Labor Party -- all these leaders support the very withdrawals which Olmert is now starting to carry out. Therefore, no matter who wins the March 28 elections, withdrawal will still take place; however, political leaders deemed to be "conservative" are generally the ones the Illuminati turns to during times of great planned upheaval and/or war. Therefore, either the Kadima or the Likud Party will likely "win" the election March 28.

Let us now return to this WorldNetDaily article for more information:

"Israeli Defense Force officials said they have been ordered to demolish Chazon David, a small Jewish section outside Hebron consisting of a synagogue and a few mobile homes. Jews have lived in nearby Hebron – home to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, believed to be the resting place of biblical patriarchs and matriarchs – almost continuously for over 2,500 years. It is considered the oldest Jewish community in the world. Hebron spokesman David Wilder told WND, 'Olmert needs these evictions. He needs to show he has the strength of [Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon, that he can stand up to the so-called settlers and carry out a withdrawal'." (Ibid.)

Last week, we talked about "intimidation" of the 80,000 settlers once they witnessed the brutal tactics employed in Hebron and Amona. We still believe intimidation is the key motivating factor, not the rationale of this WND article.

"Wilder pointed out while Olmert is enforcing the removal of a small Jewish outpost, over 3,000 illegal Arab settlements in the area remain intact. The IDF sources told WND they have been cleared to use 'all necessary force' to remove Chazon David residents ... Israeli television broadcast live footage of demonstrators, including women and children, being dragged and beaten by soldiers. Teenagers with bloody noses and head wounds were seen being removed from the scene. Police were videotaped using batons and gas canisters to clear the area of demonstrators. More than 300 protesters were treated in makeshift first aid tents. At least 70 were evacuated to Jerusalem hospitals with moderate-to-serious injuries. Three Israeli nationalist lawmakers, including Elon, were wounded in the clashes ... over 100,000 Israelis protested in Jerusalem earlier this month to demand a commission of inquiry into the violence at Amona. Olmert at first refused to establish an investigative committee, but last week he relented."

As you can see from this description, Olmert used plenty of physical intimidation. Even three Israeli lawmakers were injured!

"Olmert justified his plan to vacate the West Bank, which is within rocket firing range of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, by claiming Arabs will soon outnumber Jews and threaten the country's Jewish character. But recent studies indicate Olmert is relying on faulty demographic information and that Jews likely will outnumber Arabs by more than double in 20 years ... Terrorist groups have warned if Israel withdraws, they will launch rockets from the West Bank into Israeli cities. Many villages in the West Bank, which Israelis commonly refer to as the 'biblical heartland', are mentioned throughout the Torah. The book of Genesis says Abraham entered Israel at Shechem (Nablus) and received God's promise of land for his offspring. He later was buried in Hebron. The nearby town of Beit El, anciently called Bethel, meaning 'house of God', is where Scripture says the patriarch Jacob slept on a stone pillow and dreamed of angels ascending and descending a stairway to heaven. In that dream, God spoke directly to Jacob and reaffirmed the promise of territory. And in Exodus, the holy tabernacle rested in Shiloh, believed to be the first area the ancient Israelites settled after fleeing Egypt."

There is no doubt whatsoever that the lands being temporarily evacuated in The Gaza Strip and the West Bank are Biblical lands which God gave to Israel in perpetuity; however, Israel is not giving up these lands permanently, but only in order to be able to annihilate their implacable enemy, the "House of Esau" of Obadiah 15-18, today known as the Palestinians. All the signs are present, for anyone with an open mind to see. (Read NEWS1422, NEWS1620, and NEWS2095 for full details of this Biblical prophecy being readied in your Daily News)

Acting Prime Minister Olmert is flexing his muscles, showing the vast majority of the 80,000 settlers who must move what their fate will be if they resist. And, the secular Jews living within Israel proper are cheering the fate of the Orthodox, Religiously-Observant Jews being violently rousted out of their homes.

But a question remains: how can Prime Minister Olmert have the confidence to move so boldly and forthrightly in withdrawing from the remaining territories, when Sharon had to always walk on eggshells concerning that question, having to always pretend that his major emphasis was on negotiating with the Palestinian Authority? The answer is given below, and it may surprise you.

NEWS BRIEF: "Israel signals 'peace' process is dead: PA has become 'enemy state,' an extension of 'axis of evil' ", Jerusalem News Wire, February 15, 2006

"Even as it agrees to transfer tens of millions of dollars to the Hamas Authority, the Government of Israel is finally starting to realize that any semblance of a “Palestinian” peace partner has now disappeared ... prominent High Court Justice Mishael Cheshin said of the Palestinian Authority:

“I'm talking about an enemy regime, a regime that wants to destroy Israel, that is not willing to recognize the [Jewish] State... this is a de facto enemy state.”

"Cheshin gave his formal backing to the State's refusal to permit entry to “Palestinians” simply because they wed local Arab women, pointing out that the majority of the Palestinian Arab public had just backed Hamas at the ballot box":

"Why should we take risks during a war? ... Don't we want to survive?”

Speaking to reporters following a meeting with Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak in Cairo Tuesday, Mofaz said:

“Through Hamas, the axis of evil, which begins with Iran and passes through Syria and Hizb'allah, will continue to other countries where there are radical organizations.”

Therefore, Prime Minister Olmert is moving rapidly in political minefields which Sharon tred so softly because the Hamas victory at the polls has suddenly given Israel the opportunity to officially declare the Palestinians to be an "enemy combatant", and to reiterate Sharon's often-repeated mantra that Israel must withdraw from these territories because she does "not have a partner for peace".

The events of the past few weeks can only mean one thing: the Israeli forced withdrawal from the West Bank has officially begun.

Now, the only question is, how long it will take to forcibly evacuate 80,000 people? Watch this withdrawal, for the next phase of Regional War with Iran, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt will not begin until this withdrawal is complete. No Western power will attack Iran until the time has arrived to throw the world into World War III.

III. Hamas suddenly seemed to reverse its political position that it would never recognize Israel's right to exist -- almost but not quite. Without warning, Hamas began diplomatic activity which would "moderate" its position toward Israel. Yet, reading the "fine print" reveals that Hamas has not really changed its "stripes".

NEWS BRIEF: "Hamas working on 'new charter' ", The Jerusalem Post, Feb. 16, 2006

"At closed meetings in hotel suites in Beirut and Damascus, Hamas has been developing a new charter that is designed to showcase a more moderate and non anti-Semitic face ... Yet this new document, acknowledged Dr. Azzam Tamimi, 51, the Hebron-born director of the Institute of Islamic Political Thought in London, would still call for an end to the Jewish state and the creation of a Palestinian state on all of mandatory Palestine. It would, he said, provide for the possibility of a long-term hudna (cease-fire accommodation) with an Israel limited to its pre-1967 borders.'

Cutting Edge explained over two years ago exactly what a "Hudna" is and why no non-Islamic state should ever accept such an agreement. If you have not yet read this expose', please take a moment now to do so. Read NEWS1864, entitled, "ISRAEL MAY AGREE TO GENEVA 'PEACE' AGREEMENT IN WHICH COUNTRY IS EFFECTIVELY CUT INTO THREE SEPARATE SECTIONS!"

You will discover that the concept of a "Hudna" was originally articulated by the Prophet Mohammed himself, as a means by which Islamic forces could finally annihilate their enemies! This is the only "peace" Hamas intends to extend to Israel -- the "peace" of the grave.

Meanwhile, the International Community is acting speedily to enhance the diplomatic credentials of Hamas.

NEWS BRIEF: "Russia and Hamas to Discuss Arms", Israel National News, February 16, 2006

"Russia’s President Vladimir Putin formally invited Hamas leaders this week to visit Moscow for talks in early March. Stunned Israeli officials are considering sanctions against the Hamas led PA. The meeting may end with a new deal to supply the terrorist organization with arms, including two M-17 helicopters and 50 armored personnel carriers ... Russian army chief of general staff General Yuri Baluvevsky said the two helicopters would be unarmed, however. He justified the sale of armored equipment as necessary for 'stabilizing the situation'."

"In a meeting on Thursday with high-ranking European Union official Javier Solana, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni expressed Israel’s annoyance with the Russian move."

Israel was not prepared to just complain against this international friendly treatment of an Hamas government; it began to draw up a list of actions it could take immediately after Hamas assumes political power.

"Israel meanwhile, geared up for Hamas’ official entry into the Palestinian Legislative Council Saturday by drawing up a list of sanctions to go into effect when the new majority party is sworn in ... Proposed sanctions include curbs on fund transfers, blocking movement from Gaza to Judea and Samaria, and denial of Israeli entry permits to Arab workers living within the Palestinian Authority controlled areas. In addition, Israel would freeze projects such as building a seaport and airport in Gaza. Preparations to turn Gaza’s Erez and Karni crossings into international border crossings will also be halted. The proposed move will end the practice of collecting taxes on behalf of the PA. Furthermore, PA merchants would be compelled to pay customs and other taxes in order to move merchandise in and out of Gaza, which is currently free of charge. Provision of utilities such as water and electricity, transfer of medical supplies, and other humanitarian cooperation would continue."

Israel was clearly trying to rein in the militant terrorist tendencies of Hamas, but we know that will be to no avail. No Muslim will ever agree to allow Israel to live.

Behold A Pale Horse
IV. As the Bush Administration seemed to be leading an international chorus of escalating words of war against Iran, Venezuelan and Iranian leaders were countering with an alliance of their own.

NEWS BRIEF: "Americas Foes Circle Wagons", by Claude Salhani, UPI International Editor, reprinted in Raiders News Updates, February 16, 2006

"America's enemies are circling their wagons, readying for what they perceive to be inevitable: a showdown with the United States. Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted by the New York Times as having told a large crowd of demonstrators: 'I ask our dear people to prepare themselves for a great struggle. Fasten your seat belts and pull up your sleeves' ... Last month Ahmadinejad flew to Damascus to confer with Syrian President Bashar Assad. Their discussions, no doubt, focused on mutual fears -- the likelihood of U.S. attacks ... While Bush and Rice continue to talk, so too, will Damascus and Tehran. As will Hamas and Tehran. As will Tehran and Hezbollah. As will Hamas and Baghdad. As will Damascus, Tehran, Baghdad, Hamas and Hezbollah all continue to talk.

"What we are witnessing is the emergence of a new anti-American bloc coming together, grouping Syria, Iran, and groups under Iran's and Syria's influence ... Recent electoral victories by America's foes, as in the Palestinian territories, Iran and Iraq, has boosted opposition to U.S. policies in the Middle East ..."

Not content with merely trying to defend itself militarily against a vastly superior American military machine, Syria took a concrete step against American interests which she hopes will be copied by rich oil companies throughout the world. Listen:

"Upping the ante, Syria surprised world financial markets Monday when it announced that it would stop dealing in U.S. dollars, replacing them with the euro in all official institutions. 'All the ministries and public companies must from now on adopt the euro instead of the dollar for paying back sums owed by state institutions to foreign parties', said a statement endorsed by Prime Minister Mohammed Naji Ottri, carried in the Syrian Ath-Thawra daily newspaper. The move against the dollar is one of the first policy changes made by Ottri after Assad reshuffled his Cabinet Sunday. Elaph, a London-based Arabic language Internet website called the change 'an unexpected move'.According to Elaph, Dr. Dureid Dergham, chairman of the Commercial Bank of Syria, said that this procedure was crucial and necessary in light of the American threats on Syria. Syrian government sources said this decision is an attempt "to keep the Syrian economy away from the mercy of the American dollar, especially since American laws stipulate that any conversion into dollars must go through the American banking system." (Ibid.)

In earlier newsletters, we reported that Iran was planning an identical monetary move in mid-March, which could really hurt the United States and might even curtail our ability to roam throughout the world looking for "Regime Changes". Russia's Putin remarked over a year ago that America could only continue her imperialistic ambitions if the world continued to sell oil in US Dollars; if the world began selling oil in Euros, America's financial ability to wage war throughout the world would plummet dramatically.

Could the Iranian threat to start selling her oil only in Euros in March have anything to do with the shrill nature of Washington's war voice?

Threats against Venezuela are also continuing, adding to the urgency of this new coalition gathering strength.

NEWS BRIEF: "US pursues 'inoculation' strategy to curb Chavez", Reuters News, February 17, 2006

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Washington wants to curb Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's anti-American influence by lobbying allies to try to expose any anti-democratic policies ... The United States has tried different strategies to counter Chavez, ranging from confronting him to ducking a fight. In what she termed an 'inoculation' strategy, Rice said she had sought support from Europe and other Latin American nations to highlight U.S. charges that the populist Chavez abuses his power to target political opponents and business leaders. 'The international community has just got to be much more active in supporting and defending the Venezuelan people', Rice told a congressional hearing."

Now, that statement is hypocritical. Even though Washington has been preaching "democracy" all over the world, staging the elections supposed to bring it to pass, the Bush Administration refuses to recognize the reality that Venezuelan President Chavez has won two elections and is very popular with the electorate. This next segment makes this reality very clear.

"Speaking late on Thursday night, Chavez questioned what he called the confused signals in Washington's policy toward Caracas and dismissed attempts by Rice to isolate his government in the world's No. 5 oil exporter ... 'All we can do is resist this imperialist abuse and defeat it', he said ... Flush with revenues from high-priced oil exports and allied with Cuba, Chavez has thrived, is popular in Latin America and has come to symbolize much of the anti-American sentiment in a region that has increasingly opposed U.S. economic policies. That regional popularity has undercut Rice's efforts to use neighboring nations to curb Chavez, who has used strengthened ties with leftist governments to reject America's free trade ambitions for the hemisphere."

Several newsletters ago, we noticed that Brazil and Venezuela were forming an anti-American bloc with numerous leftist-leaning governments in Central and South America. Leftist parties have also swept into power in several regional nations, based upon the people's severe dislike with Uncle Sam and his current President, George Bush.

Venezuela warns America of severe consequences if she attacks.

NEWS BRIEF: "If Venezuela were to be attacked there would be many more US casualties", V-News, February 15, 2006

"If the United States attacked Venezuela, it would have to counter resistance from more than one million men and women, and it would have a toll of many victims that it could not stand, Venezuelan General Alberto Muller warned Tuesday. If necessary, the country will resist any foreign aggression with 'primitive guerrilla' fighters stressed the high-ranking officer, who was recently reincorporated into the National Armed Force (FAN) by President Hugo Chavez, after 20 years in retirement.'

It seems as though the rest of the underdeveloped world -- those "Non-Integrating States" -- have learned the lesson from the Iraqi insurgents well. A "primitive" insurgent force can, indeed, tie up the horrible giant. Yet, this Venezuelan General seemed to doubt that an American attack was really going to come, for some of the same reasons enunciated by the Iranian editorial, quoted above.

"In statements to foreign reporters in Caracas, Muller, who headed Chavez' first election campaign, noted that he sees little possibilities, however, of an imminent US attack ... the US armed forces are going through a serious crisis regarding human material, since they are incapable of recruiting troops to replace their men in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Bush is discredited both in the country and abroad ... Venezuela, he warned, is not Panama, Nicaragua or Grenada, rather a nation of nearly one million square kilometers with a militarily complicated geography, including the Amazon rainforest, the plains or the mountains."

Once again, the Illuminati is in control of both sides of this conflict; therefore, no serious attack can be expected until Israel is ready to go to war. Keep your eye on that West Bank withdrawal!

V. Vice President Cheney admitted shooting his hunting partner, and the Sheriff said he would not press charges of any type. Case over and closed, right? Not so fast.

NEWS BRIEF: "Hunter Shot by Cheney Suffers Mild Heart Attack- Confirms birdshot in the heart", by Maria Newman, New York Times, February 14, 2006

"The 78-year-old lawyer who was accidentally shot by Vice President Dick Cheney on Saturday suffered a mild heart attack today after bird shot migrated to his heart, doctors in South Texas said. Doctors said Mr. Whittington was moved back into the intensive care unit after his heart monitors detected an irregular beat this morning. After consulting with cardiologists in Corpus Christi, Tex., where he is being treated, and with those on the White House medical team, his doctors decided to perform a cardiac catherization ... to determine the extent of the damage."

"Peter Banko, the administrator of Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital in Corpus Christi, said that the procedure, which sends a dye into the blood vessels all the way to the heart, detected one BB size pellet in his heart that was causing his heart to quiver. He said Mr. Whittington was in stable condition now, and alert, but that he would remain in the hospital for at least another week to make sure that pellet and any others did not continue to move to other vital organs ... This was the first official statement from the vice president that mentioned Mr. Whittington, who suffered birdshot wounds to his face, neck, chest and rib cage from the pellets sprayed at him from 30 yards away by Mr. Cheney's shotgun. The two had been among a group of friends who gathered for a weekend of quail hunting at the Armstrong Ranch in South Texas."

However, later news stories revealed that physical facts do not support the official story line.

NEWS BRIEF: "Cheney Shotgun Ballistics Don't Match Up - Metal in the heart means much closer shot and or bigger gun was used", by Alex Jones, Prison Planet, February 15, 2006

"What we had deducted almost immediately after Cheney machine began rolling on this shooting is now finally starting to filter out into the rest of the media: It is not only unlikely that Whittington was injured in the way he reportedly was if Cheney had shot him from 30 yards -- it is impossible. After reviewing the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife report on the shooting, there is no doubt that this is a cover-up. The pattern of the birdshot depicted in the diagram on the report indicates about a foot spread from cheek to chest.

"As we previously reported, birdshot is not like a traditional bullet. Birdshot is composed of hundreds of tiny lead BB's with very low mass which are designed to spread out and slow down very quickly. The idea is basically to shoot out a bunch of tiny pellets to catch a bird that may be taking wing at the instant it recognizes the shot has been fired. Many points ensure greater likelihood of hitting the target.

"These pellets are incredibly tiny and the further they get away from the gun, the slower and less forceful they become. So at a distance of about 90 feet (or 30 yards as reported by the White House) the pellets would have hit Whittington with the force equivalent to a gentle shove and have left maybe some tiny surface marks on any exposed skin."

So, how far away from the victim would Cheney have likely been, given the physics of the case? Not 30 yards, or 90 feet!

"The only way to account for the pattern indicated on the TDPW report is if Cheney was about 10 feet away from Whittington when he shot him. Reports and press releases that followed the event explained that some of the pellets had become lodged in his heart tissue. The only way this is possible, the only way that the tiny pellets designed to spread over distance could have maintained the force necessary to penetrate Whittington's hunting vest, clothing, skin, muscle, bone and finally into his rock-hard heart would have been if they came from a much shorter distance than the White House is claiming."

Finally, what happens to Cheney and his legal defense if Whittington dies? Texas would have to launch a vigorous, well-planned whitewash!

What would cause Cheney to shoot Whittington from less than 10 feet away? The Vice President is an accomplished rifle hunter, after all. This next story may shed some light on this incredible situation.

NEWS BRIEF: "Cheney's Chappaquiddick II: The Real Story Emerges", Raiders News Updates, February 16, 2006

"The real story is already emerging, if you're willing to do a little digging. Cheney and Whittington went hunting with two women (not their wives), there was some drinking, and Whittington wound up shot. Armstrong didn't see the incident but claimed she had, Cheney refused to be questioned by the Sheriff until the next morning, and a born-again evangelical physician has been downplaying Whittington's injuries since they occurred. Neither the press nor law enforcement seems inclined to investigate ..."

"In addition to Cheney and Whittington, the hunting party included Katherine Armstrong (who was in the car at the time of the shooting: more on that later). After lots of evasive comments that only referred to a 'third hunter', we now know her identity: Pamela Willeford, the US Ambassador to Switzerland ... Then there was this Armstrong quote on MSNBC ... 'There may be a beer or two in there," (Armstrong) said, 'but remember not everyone in the party was shooting.'"

"Armstrong said she saw Cheney's security detail running toward the scene. 'The first thing that crossed my mind was he had a heart problem', she told The Associated Press. In other words, she didn't see the accident. All of her statements, replete with colorful sidebars about getting 'peppered pretty good', gave the false impression she was an eyewitness. She wasn't ... So was Cheney drinking, and was there anything inappropriate about this hunting party? We don't know, and nobody's investigating. There's reason to be suspicious. We do have the suggestion that drinking was taking place, we have inconsistencies and a pattern of deception in Armstrong's statements, we have a shooting injury that's far more serious than originally claimed ... and a Sheriff's Department and national press that have already proclaimed the VP innocent of all wrongdoing.

"I was right to call this Cheney's Chappaquiddick. The parallels get stronger every day."

Finally, news of the whitewash came across the wires.

NEWS BRIEF: "Sheriff: Dick Cheney Won't Face Charges", My Way News, February 16, 2006

"SARITA, Texas (AP) - The sheriff's department closed its investigation Thursday into Dick Cheney's accidental shooting of a hunting partner and said no charges will be filed. The Kenedy County Sheriff's Department issued a report that largely supports the vice president's account of the weekend accident that wounded 78-year-old lawyer Harry Whittington. Whittington, interviewed in the hospital, assured investigators no one was drinking when the accident occurred and everyone was wearing bright orange safety gear, according to the report."

The facts be what they may, the official story line seems to close the case: VP Cheney innocent of any wrongdoing. The whole affair was just an accident, and nothing was to be said about two couples not married to each other drinking and partying out on the woods.

VI. Amidst news of an American pull-back and draw-down from Iraq, we suddenly learn that 106 permanent American bases are planned to be left behind!

NEWS BRIEF: Permanent Bases Point Toward Permanent War: Is The Neocon Nightmare Winding Down, Or Just Getting Started? US planning 106 permanent bases - including six hi-tech "super-bases" - inside Iraq, By: Evan Augustine Peterson III, J.D., Scoop Independent News, 17 February 2006

"In Mr. Bush's 'State 0f The Union' address, he claimed that 'US forces will be drawn down as Iraqi forces stand up'. However, this claim is flatly contradicted by the Pentagon's ongoing multibillion-dollar expenditures for the construction of 106 permanent bases - including six hi-tech 'super-bases' - inside Iraq. Is there a reason why the USA's mainstream media won't report on those 106 bases, and why Congress won't debate the Pentagon's base-construction projects? The simplest answer is that the government-media complex has declared this subject taboo because it would reveal the USA's intention to militarily occupy Iraq for decades."

What did Orwell's novel envision? Permanent war for permanent peace!

"Realistically, Mr. Bush's 'draw-down' rhetoric is merely a propaganda ploy in anticipation of the 2006 mid-term election, and the withdrawal won't be implemented. In all likelihood, those hi-tech "super-bases" will serve another purpose, which is to launch and monitor his next ... war of aggression against Iraq's oil-rich neighbor, IRAN ... So where is this nation's foreign policy headed? In the short run, Mr. Bush is already attempting to expand his "wartime commander-in-chief powers" to despotic dimensions, so he can - among other things - autonomously order the commencement of a "might-makes-right" aggressive war against Iran, thus giving Republicans yet another "national security" cudgel to swing during the upcoming mid-term election."

Remember that high-tech military base for which American dollars paid in Israel? We believed then that the purpose of this base is to protect Israel as she withdraws from the West Bank. Are these high-tech bases also serving the purpose of protecting Israel from her Islamic enemies?

We cannot be sure if these bases are intended to serve the same purpose, but this unusual situation certainly bears watching.

Book - VHS - DVD
VII. In lock-step with news of a war involving Iran and Israel which most definitely will start the conflagration of the World War III designed to stage the appearance of the Masonic Christ, public rhetoric warning of Avian Bird Flu suddenly exploded.

One can hardly imagine a more horrific "worst case scenario" than the one presented in world news last week!

NEWS BRIEF: "Bird flu 'could take 142m lives'- Worst case economic cost is $4.4 trillion", CNN Health News, February 16, 2006

"SYDNEY, Australia (CNN) -- As many as 142 million people around the world could die if bird flu turns into a 'worst case' influenza pandemic, according to a sobering new study of its possible consequences. All week long, we had report after report demonstrating that this Bird Flu is spreading over the entire world. And global economic losses could run to $4.4 trillion -- the equivalent of wiping out the Japanese economy's annual output. In its "ultra" or worst-case scenario, Hong Kong's economy is halved, the large-scale collapse of Asian economic activity causes global trade flows to dry up, and money flows out to safe havens in North America and Europe. Deaths could top 28 million in China and 24 million in India.

"The report's release in Sydney Thursday comes as two more countries in Europe -- Germany and Austria -- report that the deadly H5N1 bird flu virus has been detected in wild fowl ... about 200 million birds around the world have died or been culled. Outside of Asia, there have been bird flu outbreaks in Greece, Italy, Turkey, Croatia, Russia, Azerbaijan and Romania in Europe, Iraq and Iran in the Middle East and in Nigeria, Africa.

"...the new Lowy Institute report, by the Australian National University's Prof. Warwick McKibbin and research fellow Dr Alexandra Sidorenko, says the major difficulty with influenza vaccine development is 'the need to hit the constantly moving target as the virus mutates very rapidly' .... Their observation follows a scientific study released last week which said bird flu was much more diverse than previously thought, with at least four distinct types of the deadly H5N1 virus ... So far, all but a handful of cases of human sickness have been caused by direct contact with sick birds, suggesting the virus is unable to move easily among humans.

"In the worst scenario, it said the death toll could reach 28.4 million in China, 24 million in India, 11.4 million in Indonesia, 4.1 million in the Philippines, 2.1 million in Japan, 2.0 million in the United States and 5.6 million in Europe. In the world's least developed countries, the toll could top 33 million ... 'This is clearly a major economic catastrophe', the report's authors note."

We could go on and on, but you get the point: The supposedly deadly Avian Bird Flu -- which still has not demonstrated an ability to pass directly from animal to human -- is now spreading throughout the entire world. Once the propaganda establishes in people's minds that Bird Flu has now spread across the globe, it will be a small step, indeed, to the point where it will be easy to stimulate stories designed to cause panic and despair.

What does the Bible say about deadly plagues at the End of the Age?

Luke 21:11 -- "There will be mighty and violent earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences, plagues, malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases which are deadly and devastating..." (Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)

Revelation 6:7-8 -- "When the Lamb broke open the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature call out, Come! So I looked, and behold, an ashy pale horse, black and blue as if made so by bruising, and its rider's name was Death, and Hades (the realm of the dead) followed him closely. And they were given authority and power over a fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword and with famine and with plague (pestilence, disease) and with wild beasts of the earth." (Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)

The stage seems to be getting set, don't you think? Jesus told us not to look at any one event to discern the "signs of the times", but all the signs together. Listen:

Matthew 24:33-- "So also when you see these signs, all taken together, coming to pass, you may know of a surety that He is near, at the very doors." (Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)

DVD or VHS VIII. As the heavy TV promotion begins to unfold, advertising the coming DaVinci Code movie, a news article properly linked the DaVinci code to Freemasonry and to Mormonism!
Cutting Edge has taught for many years that Mormon founder, Joseph Smith, and Brigham Young, were 33rd Degree Freemasons. Further, former Mason, Bill Schnoebelen, reveals that he was told by his Satanic coven leader that the highest form of Witchcraft in the world is performed within the Masonic Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah!

NEWS BRIEF: "Mormon connection to Masons explored ahead of 'Da Vinci Code' sequel", By Peggy Fletcher Stack. The Salt Lake Tribune

"Dan Brown clearly enjoys playing with legends, history, symbols and secrets. And readers' minds. In his best-selling novel, The Da Vinci Code, Brown wove all these - real and imagined - into a breathless mystery about Christianity, Mary Magdalene and the Divine Feminine ... But rather than announce the Da Vinci sequel in a news release, Brown embedded tantalizing clues to its subject on the book's jacket. Written in typeface that is slightly larger and bolder than the rest (it requires a magnifying glass to find them all) are the words: is there no help for the widows son."

"O Lord, my God, is there no help for the widow's son?" was used historically as a Masonic distress call ...It may have also caught Brown's attention, Shugarts speculates, and may provide one plot twist in Brown's next book, tentatively titled The Solomon Key. Brown confirmed in a speech last year that the book's mystery will be set in Washington, D.C., where many architectural features were drawn from Masonry..."

"Getting a jump on the novel's historical context, Shugarts has written Secrets of the Widow's Son: The Mysteries Surrounding the Sequel to The Da Vinci Code .... It also offers nuggets about Masonic history such as these: At least eight signers of the Declaration of Independence were Masons, as were 13 U.S. presidents including George Washington. A Freemason released Paul Revere from British custody on the night of his famous ride, after he determined that Revere was a Mason ... The Washington Monument and a similar monument on Bunker Hill in Boston, were not just coincidentally shaped like an Egyptian obelisks, but intentionally designed to honor Masonic allusions to ancient Egyptian mystical wisdom. Much of the symbolism is mathematical, even geometrical, which could explain why the fraternity has attracted rationalists such as Voltaire, Goethe, Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain.'

This information confirms much of what we have written and reported in both "Secret Mysteries of America's Beginnings" and in the "DaVinci Code: Fact or Fiction", pictured above.

All of Washington, D.C., was "magically" planned according to the art and the symbolism deemed sacred by the "ancient Egyptian mystical wisdom". As we shall prove in our Volume II: Riddles In Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C.", America's capitol city was precisely aligned with the stars according to the precepts of Astrology, her monuments were adorned with pagan symbols, and her streets were laid out in symbols held most dearly by the Ancient Wisdom adherents.

The proof of the historical story we tell in Volume I , "Secret Mysteries: The New Atlantis" are literally "written in stone" in Washington, D.C.

But more than that, the symbols and the scenes laid out in the many tympanums found in the Federal Triangle combine to tell a central story. That is the stuff of Volume II, to which we allude at the very end of Volume I, which we have just began shipping. This story not only reveals great and entertaining historic facts of which people have never been aware, but it also reveals the truth people need to understand if they are to correctly understand the events and the leaders of this current day.

Volume II is planned to be ready for release in about 6 months.

---------Conclusion----------------"Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?" Luke 24:38

"Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God?" The Lord cares for all things, and the meanest creatures share in His universal providence, but His particular providence is over His saints. "The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him." "Precious shall their blood be in His sight." "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." "We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose." Let the fact that, while He is the Saviour of all men, He is specially the Saviour of them that believe, cheer and comfort you. You are His peculiar care; His regal treasure which He guards as the apple of His eye; His vineyard over which He watches day and night. "The very hairs of your head are all numbered." Let the thought of His special love to you be a spiritual pain-killer, a dear quietus to your woe: "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." God says that as much to you as to any saint of old. "Fear not, I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward." We lose much consolation by the habit of reading His promises for the whole church, instead of taking them directly home to ourselves. Believer, grasp the divine word with a personal, appropriating faith. Think that you hear Jesus say, "I have prayed for thee that thy faith fail not." Think you see Him walking on the waters of thy trouble, for He is there, and He is saying, "Fear not, it is I; be not afraid." Oh, those sweet words of Christ! May the Holy Ghost make you feel them as spoken to you; forget others for awhile--accept the voice of Jesus as addressed to you, and say, "Jesus whispers consolation; I cannot refuse it; I will sit under His shadow with great delight." (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
