---------- Inspiration For the Week----------------"Father, I have sinned." Luke 15:18

It is quite certain that those whom Christ has washed in His precious blood need not make a confession of sin, as culprits or criminals, before God the Judge, for Christ has for ever taken away all their sins in a legal sense, so that they no longer stand where they can be condemned, but are once for all accepted in the Beloved; but having become children, and offending as children, ought they not every day to go before their heavenly Father and confess their sin, and acknowledge their iniquity in that character? Nature teaches that it is the duty of erring children to make a confession to their earthly father, and the grace of God in the heart teaches us that we, as Christians, owe the same duty to our heavenly father.

We daily offend, and ought not to rest without daily pardon. For, supposing that my trespasses against my Father are not at once taken to Him to be washed away by the cleansing power of the Lord Jesus, what will be the consequence? If I have not sought forgiveness and been washed from these offences against my Father, I shall feel at a distance from Him; I shall doubt His love to me; I shall tremble at Him; I shall be afraid to pray to Him: I shall grow like the prodigal, who, although still a child, was yet far off from his father. But if, with a child's sorrow at offending so gracious and loving a Parent, I go to Him and tell Him all, and rest not till I realize that I am forgiven, then I shall feel a holy love to my Father, and shall go through my Christian career, not only as saved, but as one enjoying present peace in God through Jesus Christ my Lord. There is a wide distinction between confessing sin as a culprit, and confessing sin as a child. The Father's bosom is the place for penitent confessions. We have been cleansed once for all, but our feet still need to be washed from the defilement of our daily walk as children of God. ["C.H. Spurgeon, Morning and Evening Devotions, contained within A.W. Tozer CDROM Library; Emphasis added]

---------- Resource Update ----------

Cutting Edge BOOKSTORE Update: Nearly every day now, our office is receiving phone calls from Fundamental Christians who are distressed since they have had to leave the church they had been attending because it was going Liberal, but could not find a solid Fundamental church in their area! We have become aware that large numbers of Fundamental Christians are becoming "unchurched" in this manner. However, in other churches that still might be considered Fundamental, slippage is also occurring, as key doctrines to the Faith are not being taught -- either in Sunday School or from the Pulpit. Therefore, each Christian must take on themselves the responsibility to learn the Fundamentals of the Faith.

Because of this, we have felt under a greater burden to bring in increasing numbers of Fundamental Bible-believing and teaching materials, much of it from revered teachers, preachers, and Bible scholars from our past. We urge you to carefully consider our increasingly large selection of materials true to the faith, to deepen your knowledge of Scripture during these exceedingly difficult days. Jesus promised His Rapture only to Fundamental Christians at the End of the Age.

"Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you ... from the hour of trial (testing) which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth." [Revelation 3:10; KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

With this verse in mind, please check out our newest selection, dedicated to your spiritual maturity. These materials also make excellent gifts to your loved ones.

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

I. Gibson's "The Passion" is symbolized on the extreme left, while the card, "Spear of Longinus", from the Illuminati Card Game is shown on the extreme right. How did Steve Jackson -- inventor of Illuminati Card Game -- know, in 1995, that some event based upon Jesus' crucifixion would occur that would be instrumental in leading the world into the New World Order? If you have not heard of the revolutionary, unbelievable Illuminati Card Game, we provide this very brief synopsis. Steve Jackson Games was producing role playing games -- both card games and board games -- most of them being based on the occult. From 1990-1995, Jackson researched the many elements by which the Illuminati was planning to overthrow the existing "Old World Order" civilization, replacing it with the "New World Order", also known as the "Kingdom of the Masonic Christ" (Biblical Antichrist).

Steve Jackson's research culminated in 1995, when he brought his card game to the Retail Market. These individual cards represent actions, or leaders, or groups of people whom the Illuminati is going to use to bring their Kingdom of Antichrist into reality. The forces of Fear, Distrust, Dissension and Violence are the Illuminati's weapons of choice. Thus, in 1995, this card game had a card depicting the attack on the World Trade Center, with an explosion occurring exactly where the first plane hit the North Tower on 9/11/2001! Another card depicted the Pentagon on fire in the middle of that structure! How in the world could Steve Jackson have precisely known, in 1995, the major two events of 9/11? As Cutting Edge has repeatedly taught, the Illuminati plan to produce Antichrist is well known within occult circles. As an occultist, Jackson learned of this full plan. We have issued five articles on this subject; if you have not yet read them, we encourage you to do so now.

The title of this five-part series is: "Smoking Gun Proof The Illuminati Planned Terrible Events Many Years Ago To Bring Down Our Culture"

Article #1 - NEWS1753 -- 9/11 Attack Foreseen
Article #2 - NEWS1855 -- Events That Have Already Occurred
Article #3 - NEWS1856 -- Stage Being Set
Article #4 - NEWS1857 -- Cataclysmic Events Still In The Future -
Article #5 - NEWS1859 -- Natural Disasters Planned

Therefore, since each card in the Illuminati Card Game represents something the Illuminati plans to do to bring down the Old World Order so they can institute the New World Order, how could Steve Jackson know, in 1995, that the Illuminati was going to create some event that revolved around Jesus' crucifixion on Calvary? When you examine this "Spear of Longinus" card, you will note that the impact of the card is centered on Golgotha, with all three crosses showing on the hills; Jesus' cross is the most prominent. Notice the depiction that the fires of Hell seem to be burning around the crosses on Calvary. Take a close look at this card.

The "Spear of Longinus" is shown in the foreground. For those not familiar with the occult, the Spear of Longinus is a magic relic worshipped by all occultists. They believe it to be the actual spear the Roman Centurion thrust into the side of Jesus Christ while he hung on the cross. Therefore, occultists worship this relic and believe it to be exceedingly powerful; in fact, Illuminist occultists believe that whoever controls this spear will control the entire world. Additionally, the Spear is also believed to be a symbol of Jesus' New Covenant.

This relic is said to be presently located in the museum of the Hapsburg Dynasty in Vienna, Austria. Listen to White Magic practitioner, Trevor Ravenscroft explain the importance of the Spear of Longinus.

"Charging his horse towards the central Cross, the Roman centurion thrust a Spear into the right side of Jesus Christ, piercing the chest between the fourth and fifth ribs. Such a manner of piercing was the custom of Roman soldiers on the field of battle when they sought to prove that a wounded enemy was dead ... (This centurion) became known as 'Longinus The Spearman' .. a prime witness of the shedding of the Blood of the New Covenant for which the Spear became a symbol. It was said that, for a moment in Time, he had held the destiny of the whole of mankind in his hands .. the legend grew around it, gaining strength with the passing of the centuries, that whoever possessed it and understood the powers it served, held the destiny of the world in his hands for good or evil. This legend ... has seen its most dreadful fulfillment in the twentieth century." ["The Spear of Destiny", Trevor Ravenscroft, p. xi-xii]

The fulfillment in the Twentieth Century referred to, above, was Adolf Hitler. On the morning after Hitler gained political control of Austria, he entered his car to travel in a procession to Vienna. The procession stopped at the Hapsberg Museum. Hitler strode into the museum, walked straight to the Longinus Spear and took possession of it. He then returned to Berlin to make preparations for World War II, believing his possession of the Spear granted him an omnipotence in war. Years later, Hitler committed suicide within hours of the time American forces seized the Spear! Occultists believe, with all their heart, that the coming "Masonic Christ" must take possession of the 'Spear of Longinus' before he can stage his appearance on earth.

Since the 'Spear of Longinus' is intimately connected with Jesus' crucifixion, the emphasis on this card must be the crucifixion. How did Jackson know, in 1995, that the Illuminati was going to stage an event revolving around Jesus' crucifixion? Is "The Passion" movie the practical outworking of this Illuminati plan to create some event revolving around the crucifixion? While time and space here does not allow a proper examination of this subject, we have issued Part 1 of a detailed article explaining the troublesome leadership that very secretive, very occultic Roman Catholic groups had on Mel Gibson during the writing, casting, and shooting of the film. This article is NEWS1893, "WILL MEL GIBSON'S MOVE "THE PASSION" PRODUCE THE LONG-AWAITED PARADIGM SHIFT IN CONSCIOUSNESS WHICH WILL PRODUCE "THE CHRIST"? Part 1 --

We feel exactly as our title states, that this movie may produce a dramatic "Paradigm Shift" in people's consciousness that could result in Evangelical Christianity melding solidly with Roman Catholicism! Remember two factors: 1) The Illuminati has chosen the man who will be their False Prophet of Revelation 13; he is the Roman Catholic Pope, whomever he will be at the time [Read NEWS1052]; 2) New Age author Jeremy Rifkin made a very shocking statement almost 10 years ago. He predicted that Evangelical churches would be the chief instrument to bring the New World Order to birth! ["The Emerging Order", Page x-xi]

Remember this part of the plan as you read of the enthusiasm Evangelical Church with which they are embracing this Catholic Secret Society -- Jesuit/Opus Dei -- depiction of Jesus' crucifixion! You will discover that "The Passion" reflects the Catholic view of the crucifixion, not the Biblical view, Gibson's protestations to the contrary notwithstanding!


II. Franklin Graham spoke to the National Broadcasters Convention on Monday, February 16, 2004. During his remarks, Graham urged delegates that they needed to strongly support President Bush in this Fall election. However, one of the reasons he was urging this support was rather curious. He said that, if Bush is defeated, there won't be anyone who will stop the media from broadcasting widespread pornography. In fact, Franklin said that the kind of pornographic entertainment shown during the Super Bowl will be the "tip of the iceberg" if Bush is not re-elected President!

Frankly, this hyperbole is surprising on several accounts.

First, President Bush was in office at the time of this Super Bowl -- February 1 -- but he did not prevent this Janet Jackson episode from occurring.


Secondly, while we deplore Jackson's bare breast stunt, we have pointed out that several commercials shown during the game itself were far more terrible! In particular, a Bud Light commercial entitled, "Horny Monkey" depicted Bestiality [Read NEWS1889 for full details]! If Mr. Graham is depending upon President Bush to keep Christian morality in place, we feel such confidence is very misplaced, since America's slide into the Moral Abyss during these past three years has gotten so bad, Cutting Edge nearly daily runs a segment of news stories in Daily News Updates entitled "Moral Collapse" and/or Gay-Lesbian News". If President Bush's leadership on moral issues has been so good that he should be re-elected on this issue, how is it that our national morality has continued to collapse during his watch?

Thirdly, has Franklin forgotten President Bush's letter to the openly gay Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) in which the President praised their strong stand in promoting Gay marriage? We covered this issue in our Newsletter of November 15, 2003. Let us quote the pertinent quote:

"Not long after he endorsed 'Marriage Protection Week', President Bush sent a letter of congratulations to a denomination founded by homosexual activists that performs more than 6,000 same-sex 'weddings' each year. The president wrote to the founding congregation in Los Angeles of the Metropolitan Community Churches, led by leading homosexual activist Rev. Troy D. Perry, on the occasion of its 35th anniversary: 'By encouraging the celebration of faith and sharing of God's love and boundless mercy, churches like yours put hope in people's hearts and a sense of purpose in their lives," Bush said in his Oct. 14 missive. "This milestone provides an opportunity to reflect on your years of service and to rejoice in God's faithfulness to your congregation." ["Bush cheers 'gay' church after 'Marriage Week'", WorldNetDaily, November 12, 2003]

We originally listed this terrible event as one of President Bush's Evil Fruits. However, how are we to have confidence that President Bush will stave off Antichristian morality when he has openly promoted gay marriage? Even in his stated support of a Constitutional amendment to define "marriage" as a union between a man and a woman, Bush has also spoken out of the other side of his mouth by also advocating "states rights" on this issue, knowing that states like Vermont and California are enacting same-sex marriage.

Now, notice the statute of George Bush on the extreme right, above, standing in a Masonic Museum in L.A.! What is a wax statute of President George Bush doing in the Masonic Museum on Wilshire Blvd, in Los Angeles, California? This shocking fact is revealed in the best-selling documentary, "Megiddo: The March to Armageddon", available on either video or DVD . Since this Masonic Museum is full of Masonic characters and memorabilia, it is illogical that President Bush be represented there unless the Masons consider him to be their brother. Can this be? Is President Bush a Masonic member? You bet he is, and his membership in Skull & Bones prove it. On several occasions, President Bush has publicly admitted his membership -- along with Senator Kerry.

Please read NEWS1314, entitled, "Governor George Bush Is A Member of Skull & Bones", posted mid-1999. Throughout this article, we demonstrate that Skull & Bones is Masonic to its very core and foundation. In fact, Skull & Bones is a very deadly form of Freemasonry, a Black Magick Society. Let us quote one portion of this article.

"As Rosenbaum continued his research, he found strong -- even indisputable -- links between Bones and the Bavarian Illuminists. The Bavarian Illuminists were part of the original Masters of the Illuminati, established by that Satanic Jesuit Priest, Adam Weishaupt. First, Rosenbaum discovered documents which detailed the origins of Bones back to Germany. These documents stated, "Bones is a chapter of a corps of a German University..." The document described at length its relationship with this German Secret Society (the Thule Society) which lead to the founding of the Skull and Bones in 1832.

"Secondly, Rosenbaum discovered that, "above the arched walls above the vault of the (Bones) sacred room, #322", is a painting of skulls surrounded by Masonic symbols ... Thirdly, Rosenbaum discovered a "haunting photograph of the altar room at one of the Masonic lodges at Nuremburg that is closely associated with Illuminism. Haunting because at the altar room's center, approached through an aisle of hanging human skeletons, is a coffin surmounted by...a skull and crossed bones that look exactly like the particular arrangement of jawbones and thighbones in the official Bones emblem. {Finally}, the skull and crossbones was the official crest of another key Illuminist lodge...."

There can be no doubt that Freemasons would consider President Bush to be one of their own. Now, let us examine some facts about this particular Masonic Museum -- a recently opened facility.

NEWS BRIEF: "Freemasons Open Major Museum In Los Angeles", A Report By Norio Hayakawa, 12-11-02, Rense.com

"LOS ANGELES -- A huge Masonic Museum opened its doors to the public for the first time in Los Angeles on November 26, 2002 with hardly any publicity. It is located at the Scottish Rite Masonic Temple at 4357 Wilshire Blvd., at the corner of Wilshire and "Lucerne"Street, south of "6th" Street and bounded on the east by Plymouth St. The official name of the museum is The American Heritage Masonic Museum ... I noticed that there was a large Eye of Horus along with the G mark, the Compass, and the Beehive, and the Double-Headed Eagle adorning the western wall on Lucerne St. I also noticed a huge statue of Albert Pike encarved on the eastern wall of the building on Plymouth St. I had learned that the new tenant of the property, Morris Shaoulian had stated that the museum tells the tale of the Freemasons and their impact on American history."


Now we realize why President Bush has a statue in this "major museum"! He is a member of a Masonically-based secret society and is currently having a significant impact on American history! Notice, also, that the "Eye of Horus" -- Eye of Lucifer -- is adorning this museum. This is the same Satanic eye that is hovering over the unfinished pyramid on the back of the American One Dollar bill -- a symbol that originated in the occult Egyptian Mysteries. The beehive and the Double-Headed Eagle are also famous occult and Masonic symbols, the explanation of which can be found in Dr. Cathy Burns' "Masonic and Occult Symbols".

Now, we know why a wax statute of President George Bush is located in this "major museum" -- Masons consider him to be one of them! Now you know the truth.

Thus, we have the spectacle of noted Evangelical leader, Franklin Graham, urging his followers to elect a Skull & Bones brand of Freemason! Truly, New Age leader and author, Jeremy Rifkin, knew whereof he spoke when he predicted that Evangelical churches would be the chief instrument to bring the New World Order to birth ["The Emerging Order", Page x-xi]

III. A professing "Fundamental" Evangelical Christian pastor who preaches holiness told me this past week, among other things, that any "conspiracy nut" who says anything against President Bush deserves to be thrown in jail! Is it any wonder that church members across this land cannot see the truth about our current political leadership when they are being led by such blind shepherds? Let us recount all the things this pastor said to me during a most distressing phone call.

1. This pastor does not believe a conspiracy exists among the leaders of the world, even though he acknowledges that we are living in the Last Days. I immediately pointed out Revelation 17:17, where the prophecy cleared states that the final 10 human kings of the world will "agree" on a course of action that will fulfill all God's prophecies. The Amplified Commentary is even more explicit: "For God has put it into their hearts to carry out His own purpose by acting in harmony in surrendering their royal power and authority to the beast, until the prophetic words, intentions and promises of God shall be fulfilled."

This pastor acknowledged this verse but said that he believed only in a conspiracy in the heavenlies, not on earth among human leaders. When I tried to point out that this Scripture clearly says "their hearts" -- referring to the hearts of the final rulers at the End of the Age -- he would not hear it. He verbally interrupted my sentence so badly that I never did complete it.

2. This pastor told me that President Bush could go into a pagan Shinto or Buddhist temple to participate in worship and he could arrange a Hindu ceremony in the White House honoring a Hindu god and goddess and still be consistent with his Biblical values! How can this be? This pastor explained to me that Bush is the President of all the American people -- including worshippers of pagan religions -- and the duties of that office might dictate that he go into these pagan worship centers!

Can someone email me to tell me the Scripture -- book, chapter, verse -- where it says that a Christian ruler can set aside Biblical doctrines in the pursuit of his duties? There is absolutely no Scripture which says that. In fact, Jesus told us, "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." [John 12:32] While Jesus spoke these words specifically to designate the type of death He was destined to suffer, I agree with the many pastors over the years who have intoned from the pulpit that this verse has a strong spiritual meaning. The spiritual meaning is simple, but profound: If Christians just hold Jesus up toward a sinful mankind, through the Scriptures and through their lives, Jesus will draw that sinful person to Himself.

Further, as any fifth-grader can understand, when the President of the United States goes into a pagan temple to participate in worship, he is conferring a mantle of acceptability on that religion! The Bible tells us we are to absolutely refrain from conferring any kind of acceptability on an unbeliever or his actions. Listen: "If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds." [2 John 1:10-11]

Quite clearly, when President Bush worshipped at the Shinto and Buddhist Temple, and when he allowed Karl Rove to bring a Hindu ceremony into the White House, he became a "partaker of their evil deeds."

3. When this pastor said he believed any "conspiracy nut" who said anything against Bush should be thrown into jail, he unwittingly gave his approval to the planned destruction of our precious Constitution. Obviously, we are still free to speak our minds on an issue because our Constitution guarantees this right in the First Amendment! Our Baptist forefathers living at the time of the Revolutionary War worked very hard with the political leaders of the day to get the First Amendment passed ["This Day In Baptist History II", p. 67-69]. How can a man of God, supposedly preaching only the Bible, threaten another man with prison for his point of view? Is this a Scriptural 'Fruit of the Spirit'?

4. At a later point in our conversation, this pastor stated that "skinheads" should be very pleased with Cutting Edge! I replied that it was nonsense to compare this ministry to a Nazi Skinhead for many reasons, not the least of which is that we teach that the events of the day are proceeding according to a plan that precisely fulfills prophecy! While his comparison makes no logical sense whatsoever, such a derogatory remark is regularly used by people who cannot win an argument, so they throw a statement at you which is chock full of emotional connotation! By making this unbelievable statement, this pastor revealed himself to simply be a demagogue!

5. This pastor said that the Holy Spirit told him recently that President Bush was a Godly man who deserves reelection and who will be reelected in a landslide!

Clearly, these statements should not be coming from the heart of a pastor who claims to be Born Again and filled with the Holy Spirit. Just as clearly, these statements reveal that this pastor does not vigorously apply Biblical doctrine and principle to the leaders and the events of the day. Jesus told His people are to always be "harmless as doves, and as wise as serpents" [Matthew 10:16] How are we to be as wise as serpents? By applying Biblical doctrine and principles vigorously to the events and the leaders of the day. Then, believers will not be deceived. One of the greatest Scriptures which Christians of today fail to vigorously apply is Galatians 5:9, where the Apostle Paul warns that just a "little leaven", a "little error" will ruin the whole lump of dough! This pastor, above, accepted a large dose of leaven in excusing President Bush participating in pagan worship, passing it off frivolously - when it is, in reality, a very huge shot of paganism!

You can't do that! Yet, most of the leaders of the entire 70-million strong Evangelicals are doing that today, particularly regarding President Bush. Today, Bush is the defacto leader of the Evangelical Christian Right, just as we predicted almost three years ago (NEWS1596), an article written less than one year into the Bush presidency. Even though the list of Bush's evil spiritual fruits continues to expand, the leaders of the Evangelical Christian movement continue to lead their blind followers along, literally fulfilling Jesus' warning:

"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." [Matt 15:14]

As I hung up the phone of this Evangelical Christian pastor, I just shook my heart and wept in my heart that a man who claimed to be Christian could hold such views! Maybe New Age guru, Jeremy Rifkin, was correct when he said that evangelical churches would be the chief instrument to bring the New World Order to birth.

IV. Congress is going to investigate that bogus "intelligence agency" called "Office of Special Plans" that Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld set up to bypass the CIA in mid-2002 so they could get the kind of scary Weapons of Mass Destruction stories they needed to justify an invasion of Iraq! In our two articles on this subject, we noted that this revelation was a "smoking gun" piece of evidence, because it proves personal culpability. In other words, when these leaders created this bogus "intelligence" agency, they demonstrated to the world that they planned to lie in order to justify the planned invasion. Let us examine first the story of Congress investigating the Pentagon.

NEWS BRIEF: "Pentagon offices face probe on Iraq claims", ABC NEWS Online, Thursday, February 19, 2004

"Two Pentagon offices that critics say twisted intelligence to bolster the case for war with Iraq are facing fresh scrutiny ... At issue are the activities of the Office of Special Plans and the Counter Terrorism Evaluation Group, which operated under the auspices of Douglas Feith, undersecretary of defence for policy and a leading Pentagon hawk ... The Senate Intelligence Committee this month said it would investigate the actions of these offices as part of its broader examination of pre-war US intelligence on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.

"Critics of the Bush administration argue that these two offices, driven by ideology and a predisposition for war, operated outside normal intelligence channels to manipulate and politicize data to portray Saddam Hussein's government in the most threatening light. 'What is deeply troubling is that this was an administration that was hell-bent on using force', said Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher, a California Democrat who says these Pentagon operations 'cherry picked' intelligence to amplify bad news and nullify caveats."

In newsletter013104 and newsletter020704, we detailed how the Illuminati loves to have their leaders "investigated" because such leaders know they control the investigators. Therefore, an exoneration is nearly always a foregone conclusion. Therefore, as this Congressional investigation unfolds, be prepared for witnesses to fall on the sword in order to protect their superiors, and be prepared for a surprise whitewash verdict -- unless, of course, the Illuminati plans to bring Bush down so the Democrat candidate can be elected.

Our articles on how President Bush and his Administration team lied to the American people about Saddam possessing WMD and about his link to Osama bin Laden, please read the articles below. The title of this two-part series is:

NEWS1890 -- Part 1 - Current Situation and Pre-Invasion Propaganda Examined
NEWS1890b - Part 2 - Stark Warnings Both Before and After The Iraqi Invasion That No Case Existed!

While this story validates our conclusions, do not hold out strong hope that real truth will come from this "investigation".

V. President Bush told an untruth -- to which he has already admitted -- to American soldiers about ready to deploy to Iraq!

NEWS BRIEF: "We did the right thing, Bush tells his troops", smh.com.au, February 19, 2004

"Putting his re-election campaign on a war footing, President George Bush has mounted a no-regrets defence of the invasion of Iraq despite the failure to find weapons of mass destruction. Mr Bush, visiting troops at Fort Polk army base in Louisiana on Tuesday, drew a line between the rubble left by the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and his decision to topple Saddam Hussein ... 'My resolve is the same as it was on the day when I walked in the rubble of the twin towers [of the World Trade Centre],' he said. 'I will not relent until this threat to America is removed. And neither will you'."

How can President Bush still link Saddam Hussein to the attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11, when his own Secretary of State has stated that there was no clear evidence? Listen to Secretary of State Powell:

NEWS BRIEF: "Powell admits he saw no hard proof of Iraq terror link", By CHRISTOPHER MARQUIS, New York Times, reprinted in the Houston Chronicle, January 9, 2004.

"WASHINGTON -- Secretary of State Colin Powell conceded Thursday that despite his assertions to the United Nations last year, he had no "smoking gun" proof of a link between the government of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and terrorists of al-Qaida. 'I have not seen smoking-gun, concrete evidence about the connection', Powell said, in response to a question at a news conference ... Powell's remarks Thursday were a stark admission that there is no definitive evidence to back up administration statements and insinuations that Saddam had ties to al-Qaida, the alleged authors of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Although President Bush finally acknowledged in September that there was no known connection between Saddam and the attacks, the impression of a link in the public mind has become widely accepted -- and something administration officials have done little to discourage."

Wow! This article states that President Bush "finally acknowledged in September that there was no known connection between Saddam and the attacks"! Since this is the case, why is Bush now telling these troops about to ship off to Iraq that there is a connection between Saddam and 9/11? How can the President boldly lie, when both he and his Secretary of State have publicly admitted there is no known connection?


VI. Since scientists cracked the genetic code, the world has been increasingly subjected to strange and exotic diseases that have mysteriously jumped the species barrier! Consider the facts:

NEWS BRIEF: "Meanwhile: Echoes of panic over global disease", by Philip Bowring, IHT Wednesday, February 18, 2004

"HONG KONG: Ebola, SARS, avian flu, mad cow disease: We live in the shadow of new epidemics. The avian virus, for instance, might mutate, we are told, learning to transmit itself directly from human to human. But is that possibility 50:50, 50:1 or 500:1?"

Once of the characteristics of genetically created diseases is that they are designed to cross the species barrier. In this manner, mankind can be ravaged far more terribly than by diseases occurring naturally. In NEWS1812, we demonstrated that SARS seems to be a genetically created virus specially aimed at Orientals! This view has since been substantiated with recent regular news articles. Just a couple of months ago, we read an article which stated that North Korea's most distinguished scientist had "defected" and was in China. What was the area of his expertise? Creating a genetic disease that would target only Caucasians!

None of these diseases has yet killed tens of millions, even when you add AIDS to the list of genetically created diseases. However, we may be seeing just the beginning of a terrible worldwide plague, as these diseases may just be in their initial phase. Since viruses naturally mutate, we might yet get to the point of which the Bible speaks when it foretells that, at the time of Antichrist, a very large percentage of the population is going to die by pestilence!

"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." [Revelation 6:7-8; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

I have noted two other common threads with most of these new diseases:

1. Scientists regularly call for populations "at risk" to have widespread vaccinations. As Dr. Horowitz -- and other New Age authors -- have pointed out, vaccinations are an excellent method by which the natural defense of the body, i.e., the skin, is completely bypassed.


2. In all of the animal diseases listed above, we have heard calls for an extensive extension of government powers over the food chain. As we head into the new planned "Age of Scarcity", governments would love to have firm control over our food supply. In the above Revelation passage, note that one of the aspects of the Fourth Seal of Judgment is "famine". Once governments gain tight control over the food chain, they can cause famines to occur at any time. Such capability is further worrisome when you realize that all governments controlled by the Illuminati desire to quickly "cleanse" the earth after Antichrist arises, effecting a 66% reduction in the total population of the world. Listen to this Illuminist quote:

"Six billion people on an earth already overburdened by four billion." [Friends of the Earth Chairman, David Browder, quoted by Constance Cumbey, "A Planned Deception: The Staging of a New Age Messiah", p. 165]

Once again, we see the stage possibly being set for a condition deliberately caused by the Illuminati that will fulfill prophecy!

VII. Gay marriages suddenly blossomed this week, seemingly out of nowhere!

NEWS BRIEF: "Gay marriages come out of the closet, take root in our society", By Laura Berman / The Detroit News, February 19, 2004

"Whoosh. In what felt like a few moments, the idea of legalizing marriage for gays and lesbians evolved from fanciful notion to on-the-books reality. In cities across North America — from Windsor to Boston to Montpelier to San Francisco — gay unions are newly sanctioned by law. What was mostly a matter of closed-door debate and advocating in the Advocate is now a public spectacle: thousands of couples in San Francisco, waving marriage certificates and holding hands on national television."

The major scene of state officials illegally giving out marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples occurred in San Francisco, where over 2,000 gay couples were given marriage licenses. Suddenly, across this country, scenes of gay and lesbians getting marriage licenses filled our consciousness. I suppose this event was rendered inevitable by the US Supreme Court decision last June legalizing Sodomy [NEWS1830].

As we stated in this article, America has quite possibly crossed that line of judgment with God, making His physical judgment upon us inevitable. If this is the case, then traditional Biblical morality governing marriages and relationships was doomed the moment the Supreme Court issued its decision; this demise of Biblical morality was just a matter of timing. Evidently, Satan must have thought the correct timing to force the issue of gay marriages out in the open was last week. So many gay couples showed up at local government offices to get a "marriage" license they could not be ignored. Some officials, like the Mayor of San Francisco, openly supported this assault on traditional marriage. Other local officials were simply intimidated.

Marriage advocates immediately petitioned California state courts to stop this unlawful issuing of "marriage" licenses to homosexual couples, but a judge struck down the petition. Another judge was petitioned, but delayed consideration for an undetermined period of time.

Both Laura and President Bush acknowledged that many people would be shocked by this action. George Bush even threatened to support a Constitutional amendment defining a marriage as being between a man and a woman. During an election year, that kind of stance will play well to the voters. However, Bush knows there are several huge obstacles standing in the way of such an amendment.

1) The process takes 66% of both houses of Congress to even get to the point of a convention
2) 66% of the states must ratify such an amendment
3) The entire process is guaranteed to take so long the country will be well past this Fall Election
4) The US Supreme Court stands ready to strike such an amendment down as unconstitutional. Since the high court is already on record advocating Sodomy, it would be a small step to striking down any such Constitutional amendment.

Meanwhile, America's sins continue piling up like cordwood, toward Heaven.

VIII. In Iraq, while insurgents were busily expanding their terrorist attacks to civilians cooperating with Coalition Forces and to foreign troops now serving in that country, the United States continued to lean more heavily on the "good offices" of the United Nations -- just as we have been stating.

NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. reliance on U.N. signals shift in tactics", Associated Press, reprinted in The Baltimore Sun, February 19, 2004

"WASHINGTON -- As it weighs a major change in how to transfer political power to Iraqis, the Bush administration is relying ever more heavily on the United Nations to help clear the remaining high hurdles ahead. It is an ironic turn of events for an administration that worked hard to keep the United Nations role in the background in the reconstruction of Iraq after the toppling of President Saddam Hussein. Now the United States is counting on the U.N.'s influence to help reach a solution to the ever-more complex political stalemate."

In NEWS1854, we demonstrated how Bush deliberately engaged the United Nations in a typical Dialectic Struggle that seemed designed to convince people that National Sovereignty was evil and that United Nations sovereignty was the only "safe and secure" type of government. Under this scenario, President Bush must be brought down so the United Nations can be brought up in people's minds.

President Bush is taking this action in Iraq that implicitly admits that the United Nations is the superior government authority, as the above article clearly shows.

IX. Five British terror suspects were finally released from Guantanamo Bay prison, being remanded to British jurisdiction. These men have been held, along with about 660 others, since the massive roundup -- primarily in Afghanistan -- following the 9/11 attacks. These men have been held for over 2 years without charges, without legal representation, and without any kind of outside overview, in complete violation of standard American policy regarding arrested aliens. Charges of torture at Guantanamo have also repeatedly surfaced.

Few Americans cared about these men, for we were reeling from the attacks of 9/11 and feeling downright hostile to anyone our government labeled as a "terrorist suspect" or an "enemy combatant". However, all Americans should understand that our legal system has always held that the rules governing the way we treat the most despicable prisoner -- including aliens -- serves as a barrier to dictatorial methods used against our own citizens. Using this standard as our guide, the way in which we have treated these "suspects" may serve to bring the forces of dictatorship closer to our own door step.

Let us review the current story.

NEWS BRIEF: "No rights, no charges, no lawyers ... life in the Cuban camp beyond the law", The Guardian (London), February 20, 2004

"Despite the natural beauty of its surroundings the camp has become a monument to the US war on terror after the September 11 attacks, with up to 680 people locked up without charge, without access to a lawyer, and not knowing the evidence against them ... wheeled in on trolleys, blindfolded and manacled, wearing orange jumpsuits ... seeing nothing apart from the cramped cells in which they were kept, a small exercise yard and the American interrogators who questioned them without any legal restriction ... They were classed by the US authorities as illegal enemy combatants, and Washington argued they were thus not entitled to the protection of international law. The US case was that they were hardened terrorists linked to violence. But some in the US military admitted that the detainees were actually being held for any information they might have about suspected terrorists."

Now that American authorities have successfully flaunted US law and custom in denying these "suspected terrorists" even the most elementary rights as prisoners, they must know that the stage may be set for them to treat Americans in much the same manner. Cutting Edge has repeatedly warned that this scenario is exactly what is planned for native Americans! Under the guise of restoring domestic order and tranquility after more urban terror attacks, our Illuminist leaders plan to impose tight Martial Law, dissolve our Constitution, and strip us of our rights and liberties -- all the while promising us that they shall return our lost freedoms once our "enemies" are vanquished.

A recent article from a New Zealand news source captured the essence of this scenario:

NEWS BRIEF: "The Criminalization of the State", by Michel Chossudovsky, Global Outlook, Issue 7, Spring 2004, 3 February 2004

"America’s leaders in Washington and Wall Street firmly believe in the righteousness of war and authoritarian forms of government as a means to 'safeguarding democratic values'. According to Homeland Security 'the near-term attacks will either rival or exceed the 9/11 attacks'. An actual 'terrorist attack' on American soil would lead to the suspension of civilian government and the establishment of martial law. In the words of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge: 'If we go to Red [code alert]... it basically shuts down the country'."

Democrat leader Gary Hart warned last year that, sooner or later, America was going to go to Red Alert. The timing as to when this last phase of the plan to produce Antichrist is up to God, not the Illuminati and not any man. These planned events could start unfolding tomorrow, next week, next year, or beyond -- all depending upon God's timing. However, Jesus told us in Matthew 24 that, when we see all the events foretold in that chapter coming to pass together, we will know that He is near, very near. All the signs are pointing in that direction now.

You must take the time in the interim to get closer to Jesus Christ, in the full measure as the Scripture below indicates. We need to thoroughly learn the Fundamentals of the Faith, as those wonderful, eternal doctrines will get us through any difficulty in which we might find ourselves. We need to pray much and pray for our loved ones. The time seems closer than ever before.

---------Conclusion----------------May You Actually Know HIM!

May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Holy Spirit, Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality. May Christ through your faith actually dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth of it;

That you may really come to know, practically, through experience for yourselves, the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge without experience; that you may be filled through all your being unto all the fullness of God, may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself! Now to Him Who, by the action of His power that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think -- infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams -- To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen. [Ephesians 3:16-21; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary
