---------- Inspiration For the Week----------""There were also with Him other little ships." Mark 4:36

Jesus was the Lord High Admiral of the sea that night, and His presence preserved the whole convoy. It is well to sail with Jesus, even though it be in a little ship. When we sail in Christ's company, we may not make sure of fair weather, for great storms may toss the vessel which carries the Lord Himself, and we must not expect to find the sea less boisterous around our little boat. If we go with Jesus we must be content to fare as He fares; and when the waves are rough to Him, they will be rough to us. It is by tempest and tossing that we shall come to land, as He did before us. When the storm swept over Galilee's dark lake all faces gathered blackness, and all hearts dreaded shipwreck.

When all creature help was useless, the slumbering Saviour arose, and with a word, transformed the riot of the tempest into the deep quiet of a calm; then were the little vessels at rest as well as that which carried the Lord. Jesus is the star of the sea; and though there be sorrow upon the sea, when Jesus is on it there is joy too. May our hearts make Jesus their anchor, their rudder, their lighthouse, their life-boat, and their harbour. His Church is the Admiral's flagship, let us attend her movements, and cheer her officers with our presence. He Himself is the great attraction; let us follow ever in His wake, mark His signals, steer by His chart, and never fear while He is within hail. Not one ship in the convoy shall suffer wreck; the great Commodore will steer every barque in safety to the desired haven. By faith we will slip our cable for another day's cruise, and sail forth with Jesus into a sea of tribulation. Winds and waves will not spare us, but they all obey Him; and, therefore, whatever squalls may occur without, faith shall feel a blessed calm within. He is ever in the centre of the weather-beaten company: let us rejoice in Him. His vessel has reached the haven, and so shall ours. [C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions"]

---------- Bookstore Resource Update ---------- Roman Catholic Bookstore Resources

* New Combination Offer! Black Pope CD PLUS - Catholicism: White Sepulcher Christianity DVD


How can anyone comprehend the true nature of such a closed religious system as Roman Catholicism? We offer two completely different examinations of the Catholic system so you can properly understand how this religion will one day produce the False Prophet who will force all mankind to take the "Mark of the Beast" or be beheaded.
"The Black Pope" is the very old book upon which Vatican Assassins was written. Additionally, this CD contains the other 12 ancient books from which other facts were taken. Once you read these books, you will have the facts which Vatican Assassins would have provided

"Catholicism: White Sepulcher Christianity" provides the kind of examination which only Cutting Edge can provide. David Bay, Director, assumes the role of the demonic overlord assigned to the Papacy very early in Catholic history. The assignment was to first move Catholicism into a practice of White Magic Witchcraft and then into the prophesied religion of Antichrist, Black Magick Witchcraft.

Only when you understand that Catholicism is just a practice of pagan, occult religious systems from Babylon to Egypt to other Mystery Religions can you understand the 1,200-year scandal of priests sexually abusing children, young girls and women through the power of the confessional. Only when you understand the occult basis of Catholicism can you understand what is occurring right now and what the full prophetic meaning is.

* The Secret History of the Jesuits - Secrets the Jesuits don't want Christians to know. They do not want you to know the tight tie between Hitler and Himmler with the Vatican, from the beginning of the war to the very end. Out of Europe, a voice is heard from the secular world that documents historically the same information told by ex-priests. The author exposes the Vatican's involvement in world politics, intrigues, and the fomenting of wars throughout history.

It appears, beyond any doubt, that the Roman Catholic institution is not a Christian church and never was. The poor Roman Catholic people have been betrayed by her and are facing spiritual disaster. Edmond Paris shows that Rome is largely responsible for the two great world wars. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=214




* "A Woman Rides The Beast" - Video by Dave Hunt -

DVD or VHS or Book

Now a classic expose' of the Roman Catholic Church in light of Bible doctrine and prophecy.

In Revelation 17, the Apostle John describes in great detail the characteristics of a false church which will be the partner of the Antichrist. Was he describing the Roman Catholic Church? To answer that question Dave has spent years gathering research and indisputable historical documentation (primarily Catholic sources), providing information not generally available. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=969

Other New Combination Offers!

* Combo Offer: "Antichrist & A Cup of Tea PLUS Prince Charles: Sustainable Prince" -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1037

Who is Antichrist? Is he on the world scene now? "Antichrist & A Cup of Tea", 443 pages - by the time I was two-thirds of the way through this 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.!!

"Prince Charles: Sustainable Prince" - Charles is THE heart, soul, and spirit of the global "Sustainable Development" agenda. Their major end goal is to seize control of earth's resources in order to "protect" them. Just as Cohen briefly showed in "Antichrist and A Cup of Tea", Charles envisioned the "Sustainable" issue as a major means by which to bring global government into reality.

HOWEVER, in a surprise development, this book demonstrates that the U.S. Senate secretly passed control of the United States back to Great Britain!

This revelation is exactly the goal stated by President Clinton's favorite college professor, Carroll Quigley, in his book, "The Anglo American Establishment"

* Combo Offer: "Book - The Light That Was Dark PLUS The Video - Outcome Based Religion - Apostasy, Purpose and the New Paradigm Church" --



The prophesied apostasy of the true church is gaining such speed and intensity it is hard to keep up sometimes. This combination offer exposes this apostasy in two very different areas

Book, "The Light That Was Dark" by the author of the best-selling book, "Deceived On Purpose", is a sober warning that the current Church is being seduced by the same false teachings and the same false Christ that has drawn many people into the New Age Movement. Seductive demonic spirits drew Warren Smith and his wife deeply into the occult, deceiving them into thinking they were serving Jesus

In video, "Purpose, Apostasy and the New Paradigm Church", Mac Dominick of Cutting Edge reveals the true nature of Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Church and shows how it is fulfilling Revelation prophecies.

Regularly $37.94 if bought separately, Sale $32.94, saving $5.00

* Combo Offer: "Book Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated PLUS Masons: Friend or Foe" DVD


Freemasonry is one of the most deceptive organizations in history! Since 1792, Masonry has directed the global plan to produce their spiritual superman -- Antichrist. Yet, they claim to be Christian, benevolent, and full of good works. Since knowledge is power, we offer this combination

"Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated" demonstrates the truth that symbols teach! Dr. Burns proves that Freemasonry uses exactly the same symbols in their teachings that Satanists use! She uncovers the hidden meanings behind these symbols, and allows you to recognize that you come in contact with many of these symbols everyday of your life!

Dave Wegener in the video, "Masons: Friend or Foe To The Born Again Christian?", that you should be worried about the many oaths and allegiances to which Masonic leaders -- including those in government office -- take. What are these leaders pledging their allegiance to and how deeply entrenched are their goals to America today? Since Freemasonry has attempted so strenuously to claim that they are just a good old boy fraternity that does good works and has a good time, most Americans would be shocked to learn the bitter truth behind that facade.

* "The Light That Was Dark" - Book, only $12.95

Another 'End of the Age' spiritual warning from the author of "Deceived On Purpose: The New Age Implications of the Purpose-Driven Church" -- Warren Smith. This book is a sober warning that the current Church is being seduced by the same false teachings and the same false Christ that has drawn many people into the New Age Movement.
'Led down a yellow brick road by Pied Piper spirits, I had, with best intentions, landed in a metaphysical New Age world, where the Christ being proclaimed was not the REAL Christ at all. A well-orchestrated and perfectly timed series of supernatural experiences synchronized to make me think they were coming from God had convinced me that my involvement in alternative spirituality was 'meant to be' by God.

Tens of millions of Americans have fallen into this cleverly-laid spiritual trap and are today cheering on events leading the world straight to Antichrist. Are these type of deceived people the ones of whom Paul warned? "Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false, in order that all may be judged ..."

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

I. Israeli Prime Minister Sharon had the unmitigated gall last week to lecture religiously observant Jews that they were going to have to get used to giving up their land to the Palestinian Arabs -- even though the ownership of this land was given to the Jews by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the Holy Bible!

NEWS BRIEF: "Sharon: Only part of dream can be realized - Rabbis: Sharon has declared war on God", Jerusalem News Wire, April 21, 2005

"JERUSALEM - In a pre-Passover interview, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told The Jerusalem Post that present realities meant part of the Zionist dream of resettling the land God deeded to the Jewish people would have to be forfeited. Sharon said it was impractical for Israel to maintain control over an area where a small handful of Jews live among millions of Arabs. 'I don't see, looking at the long-term picture, any possibility of a community of a few thousand Jews, for all its achievements and its special heroism, remaining in Gaza', explained the prime minister. But, he asserted, quitting Gaza would strengthen Israel’s ability to retain sovereignty over major settlement blocs in Judea and Samaria."

This annuncement is anathema to all religiously observant Jews who vigorously maintain that, since the land Sharon is forcing them to give up is land given the Jews in the Bible, they should not surrender one inch, no matter how "advantageous" it might seem to secular Jewish leadership to withdraw from this territory currently occupied by the Palestinian Arabs.

One great irony of this situation is that Sharon is assuming that, once Israel withdraws from these Biblical lands, she will gain peace with her antagonist. This assumption has already been blown to bits by the IDF, whose leadership has long been warning that Israel faces an even greater risk of all-out terrorist war from the Palestinians once she completes her unilateral withdrawal. Worrisome signs that the IDF is correct in their assumption, as violence is beginning to rage already.

However, the issue we want to discuss is Sharon's unbelievable statement that Israel must give up her Biblically-mandated lands to the Palestinians. In effect, Sharon is forcing Israel to "divide her land". In this regard, he has a most willing accomplice, President George Bush. What does God say about anyone who would attempt to "divide His land"?

"... there will I deal with and execute judgment upon them for their treatment of My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and because they have divided My land." [Joel 3:2; Parallel Bible; KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

Notice the reasons God is going to carry out this specifically directed judgment: "because they have divided My land."

Today, both the United States and Great Britain are putting the most powerful pressure possible upon Israel to get her to "divide the land of Israel"? Are you further aware that we have been putting this incredible pressure upon Israel for 20 years? And, now Sharon is seemingly "caving into" this pressure. We put quotation marks around these words because Sharon is not really caving in, because the Oslo Plan has called for this surrender of Biblical land from its genesis in 1992-1993 (Read NEWS1911 for full details).

God is going to bring terrible judgment down upon this Illuminized leadership now running Israel (Read NEWS1593). This judgment will likely occur at the mid-point of the Tribulation Period, when Antichrist commits the "Abomination That Causes Desolation" (Matthew 24:15, Daniel 9:27). As Antichrist walks out of the temple, his forces shall be poised to strike at all Jews, trying to finish the job Hitler started, i.e., annihilate all Jews. God will protect His one-third remnant, but will allow Antichrist to kill the remaining two-thirds (Zechariah 13:8-9).

At this point, people like Prime Minister Sharon will get his physical judgment! Be patient with Israel; her current Illuminized government will be destroyed by the very Antichrist it has assisted in coming to power.

For now, the real story is that the players involved in this scenario are not really whom they appear to be. Neither of the three groups pushing for a Palestinian State really wants one. Let us consider the facts:

* United States -- As we demonstrate in NEWS1643, Illuminized Freemasonry controlling America and England desperately want to control Jerusalem and the Temple Mount so they can fulfill their endless ritual of Hiram Abiff. They want to build the Third Temple, for their New Age Masonic Christ! Therefore, they cannot allow the Israel of their Masonic legends to be annihilated, and since they plan to rebuild Solomon's Temple on the Temple Mount, they cannot allow the Palestinians to control that area which is now occupied by the Islamic Dome of the Rock Temple.

* Israel -- Military and civilian leadership realize that a Jewish state can never, ever live with a such a hate-filled, hate-driven Muslim population such as the Palestinians. Their children are taught by their parents to hate the Jew and want him dead; their public schools teach a more sophisticated hatred as early as the First Grade. Israeli leaders -- even the ones called Peace Now, or Peaceniks -- are under no illusion.

* The only question is, how does Israel free itself from such an implacable foe? The answer is to trap him through an enticement to peace, and that plan is called Oslo.

* Palestinians -- As we reported in NEWS1429, Arafat was not even Palestinian! He was Egyptian, and was recruited by the Russian KGB to become the head of the fledgeling new terrorist organization, the P.L.O. -- Palestine Liberation Organization. Arafat knew his role was to lead the Palestinian people to the point where Israel can annihilate them just as Obadiah 15-18 and Isaiah 34 foretell.

Thus, Arafat responded to every "peace" gesture coming from the Israelis and/or Americans with acts of terror. Today, Chairman Abbas is committed to continuing Arafat's policies.

At this point in time, Sharon is continuing the extreme withdrawal from predominately Palestinian areas, just as the original Oslo Accords called for. The ultimate end is the annihilation of the Palestinian people, just as Obadiah 15-18 foretold 2,500 years ago. If you are not familiar with this most unbelievable prophecy, nor how it is being uniquely set for fulfillment in your Daily News, please take a few moments to read our three major articles on this subject:

NEWS1422 -- "The Coming Prophesied Annihilation of the Palestinians - Today's House of Esau" (Article posted October, 2000)

NEWS1620 -- "Israeli Prime Minister Says Israel Will Create Buffer Zones To 'Physically Separate' From Palestinians"

NEWS1625 -- "Jewish Professor Accuses Sharon Government of Planning 'Ethnic Cleansing' of Arabs In Israel"

Watch Israel -- She is the key to the timing of events in the Middle East. Once you see the physical security fence nearing completion, plus the physical removal of Jewish settlers to safety in secured Israeli areas, you will know that Israel is now prepared to go to war -- and go to war she shall!

As for Prime Minister Sharon and his group of advisers, who are following the plan of the "Illumined Ones" to divide the sacred land of Israel, in order to effectively annihilate the Palestinians, Jesus has the final Word:

"Take note! I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not -- but lie..." (Revelation 3:9; Parallel Bible; KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

God knows those who are His, and the rest shall be severely, totally judged. The world is hurtling toward the beginning of that judgment; in fact, Cutting Edge believes that the attacks of 9/11 may well mark the beginning of End of the Age judgments.


II. In record time, the College of Cardinals elected Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger as the new Pope; acting according to the St. Malachy Prophecy (NEWS2021), Ratzinger assumed the name, Pope Benedict XVI.

From the beginning of Pope John Paul II's slide into death, the Vatican has taken the traditional posture of seamlessly managing the death and burial of John Paul II on the one hand, while electing the new pope on the other hand. And, like the good pagans they are, Vatican officials carried out these events according to occult sacred numerics, sacred days, and sacred signs in the heavenlies.

We posted this information in NEWS2027, and have neither the time nor the space here to repeat our information. However, suffice it to say that, just as Pope John Paul II was born and buried on a Solar Eclipse, so the election of Cardinal Ratzinger was completed on the first day of the Black Magick 13-day celebratory period known as the Blood Sacrifice of the Beast (April 19), and his coronation will occur Sunday, April 24, a day of a lunar eclipse.

All these details are in NEWS2027.

One thing we must remind you here is that, prior to being elected pope, Cardinal Ratzinger was the head of the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith", commonly called the "Office of the Inquisition". In other words, Ratzinger was leading the same Inquisitional machinery which slaughtered untold Protestant millions from 600 A.D. to approximately 1850!

A good, Godly man does not accept the leadership of such a horrendous organization, which has the "blood of the saints" on its hands. Furthermore, Pope John Paul cannot have been a good, Godly pope if he felt it necessary to reinstate the torturous, bloody Office of Inquisition. I find it highly sobering that the head of the modern Office of Inquisition -- the Grand Inquisitor -- is now pope!

Listen to the sobering language concerning Cardinal Ratzinger on the Ratzinger Fan Club website.

"As Grand Inquisitor for Mother Rome, Ratzinger ... KEPT himself busy in service to the Truth: correcting theological error, silencing dissenting theologians, and stomping down heresy wherever it may rear its ugly head ..." [http://www.ratzingerfanclub.com/]

Listen to the words which should give all mankind nightmares.

* "stomping down heresy"
* "silencing dissenting theologians"
* "correcting theological error"
* "Grand Inquisitor"

These words propelled the Inquisition which terrorized Europe and England for over 1,200 years! The force behind these words were responsible for the torturous murder of tens of millions of people! With the events of the Book of Revelation directly ahead of us, we must realize that the False Prophet -- which we now know is the Pope -- will require all mankind to take the "Mark of the Beast" and behead those who refuse. The prophesied numbers of people who will be killed at this time will stupendously dwarf the numbers of the original Inquisition.

And, now that office is now back in existence, ready to start history's final Inquisition.

Such is the man we now have as Pope Benedict XVI.

Let us examine some other interesting side issues involved with the new pope, Benedict XVI.

NEWS BRIEF: "Pope predicted a short reign to cardinals", The Boston Globe, April 21, 2005

"VATICAN CITY -- Pope Benedict XVI predicted a 'short reign' in comments to cardinals just after his election, and his brother said Wednesday he was worried about the stress the job would put on the 78-year-old pontiff. Joseph Ratzinger has had ailments in the past, including a 1991 hemorrhagic stroke, that raise questions about how long his papacy will last -- and whether the world will watch another pope slowly succumb to age and ailments on a very public stage. Benedict was the oldest pontiff elected in 275 years ... Benedict has trouble sleeping and has a 'delicate constitution' ... Ratzinger, the oldest pope elected since Clement XII in 1730, was clearly chosen as a transitional pope who would fulfill the unfinished business of John Paul's 26-years, yet not be another long-term pontiff."

Many fundamental Christians probably had the same reaction as one of my acquaintances, who reacted with despair over the thought that we might have to endure two more popes -- the last of which would be the False Prophet. These despairing Christians were thinking that the world might have to wait another 26 years before the final pope would come to office.

However, as I pointed out to them, Roman Catholic popes do not always serve 26 years. Many served less than five years and one pope, John Paul I in 1978, served only 33 days before he was reportedly murdered.

Therefore, the peoples of the world might not have to wait a long time for this pope to pass from the scene and for the final pope -- Peter Romanus, according to St. Malachy's prophecy -- to come to power. This news story adds great weight to this possibility, a story which gains even greater weight because it comes from Ratzinger's own lips. It seems as though he is preparing his followers to accept a short reign. Certainly, his age (78 years) works against him; in just 2 years, he turns 80 years old, a time when Pope John Paul II began to really decline.

Cutting Edge has long believed that the real False Prophet would have to be younger, because prophecy will demand a lot of him. As False Prophet, the Pope will unite all religions under his leadership, support Antichrist fully, display the same occult powers as Antichrist, and force the peoples of the world to take the Mark of the Beast. Since this position is so very important to the Illuminati, and since its occupant will be so very busy, it does seem logical that an 78-year-old could not fulfill these strenuous demands.

Exactly how long Pope Benedict XVI will remain in power is anyone's guess. We shall just have to carefully watch world events as they transpire.

Just as selected Evangelical Christian leaders expressed sorrow at John Paul's death, and a solidarity with him on certain issues (Newsletter for April 9, Paragraph V), so have Evangelical leaders expressed solidarity with the new pope! The apostasy of Evangelical Christianity is increasing every day, is becoming more noticeable by the discerning, and is continually bringing Protestant Christianity to the foot of the throne of St. Peter in Rome!


NEWS BRIEF: "Conservative Evangelicals Say New Pope Speaks Their Moral Language", Christianity Today, Week of April 18, 2005

"The day before Roman Catholic Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI, he declared in a public Mass that a 'dictatorship of relativism' threatens the absolute truth claims of the church. That statement could easily have been made by conservative evangelical leaders in the United States. Despite theological differences, they're cheering the choice of a pontiff who seems to speak the same moral language they do."

This article then lists the comments of selected Evangelical leaders about the elevation of Cardinal Ratzinger to the Papacy.

* Norman Geisler, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, N.C. - "Relativism, pluralism and naturalism are the three main foes of evangelicalism today and they're the main foes of conservative Roman Catholics. We rejoice in the choice because he's going to hold the line and he's not going to allow the liberal element in the Catholic Church to reverse any of those things."

* Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission - said Ratzinger will be an ally of U.S. religious conservatives on a litany of moral issues such as abortion, gay rights, cloning and physician-assisted suicide."

* Prison Fellowship Founder Chuck Colson - hailed Ratzinger's election as "a great choice." (Remember, Colson was an original participant in the 1994 "Evangelicals and Catholics Together" document, which aimed to foster cooperation between the two groups. He has been selling out true Christianity for a very long time!)

Colson continued: "Cardinal Ratzinger is strong, solid, and will carry on the tradition of John Paul II. That is very good news indeed for Catholics, for all Christians and for the world."

* John Witvliet, director of the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship at Calvin College - "said the choice of the new pope is likely to hearten those still involved in the "Evangelicals and Catholics Together" movement as well as evangelical opponents to abortion and euthanasia."

Witvliet then stated that the Christian world outside Catholicism had much to learn from the theological teachings of Cardinal Ratzinger! "The vast majority of his writings are about the person and nature of Jesus, the beauty of God, and the nature of the church as source of healing and mission in the world. Those, of course, are all topics that resonate not just with Catholics, but with Protestants as well."

Incredible heresy! When Cardinal Ratzinger speaks of the "person and nature of Jesus, the beauty of God", he does so from a uniquely Catholic perspective, which is totally unbiblical and which has been rejected by Protestant and Baptist scholars for 400 years. You cannot mix truth with error, according to Biblical teaching! (2 Cor 6:15; Matthew 6:24 and Luke 16:13; 1 Cor 5:6)

The teachings of the Apostle Paul are especially pertinent in today's leaderless Protestant Church. Listen carefully:

"Do you not know that just a little leaven will ferment the whole lump of dough?" (1 Cor 5:6; Parallel Bible; KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

When Evangelical Christian leaders say that they can ignore the theological differences with Catholicism and concentrate only on those issues upon which they can agree -- abortion and euthanasia -- they are not only totally unbiblical, but they are leading their followers into the End of the Age disaster whereby Protestants will accept the Roman Pontiff as the supreme religious leader of the world! That man will be THE false prophet and will force mankind to take the "Mark of the Beast"

What did Jesus counsel? Did He say we are to work with a church which teaches "another Gospel" and which has mixed pagan doctrine in with biblical doctrine? No, Jesus said, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing." (2 Cor 6:17; Parallel Bible; KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

These Evangelical leaders deserve the condemnation of all discerning Christians the world over.

III. The Dow Jones Average skyrocketed yesterday on surprisingly good earnings reports, following days in which earnings reports of major companies were less than rosy.

NEWS BRIEF: "Dow Surges, Ends Up 206 on Strong Earnings", My Way News, April 21, 2005

"NEW YORK (AP) - Stocks staged a stunning rebound Thursday as investors snapped up shares on unexpectedly strong earnings from companies including Nokia Corp. (NOK) and Motorola Inc. (MOT), and the surprising news that the New York Stock Exchange plans to merge with electronic trader Archipelago Inc. The Dow Jones industrial average soared more than 200 points, its best day in two years."

Americans have been buffeted with bad economic news lately, and more bad economic news will face us in the future. Of particular concern is the skyrocketing price of oil and gas prices. The higher these prices climb, the lower the confidence of many Americans sinks. These concerns are valid, but the statistics themselves do not mean the economy is going to tank anytime soon. Remember, Cutting Edge has been following these kinds of news reports ever since 1997, and have had been given woeful statistics which indicated that the economy could not possibly long survive.

In mid-1998, the Cutting Edge Treasurer, a very knowledgeable Certified Public Accountant in the Boston area, sent me a very long email in which he listed all the "disaster indices"; he concluded his report by saying that the economy cannot possibly stay afloat through the end of the year. I emailed him back, telling him what I am about to tell you.

Former coven member, Doc Marquis, told me emphatically that the Illuminati had long ago concluded that Americans would never allow themselves to be pushed into the New World Order if they were not prosperous. Material Prosperity is the god of the average American. Therefore, Doc concluded, the Illuminati was determined to keep the economy going strong and making Americans feel prosperous right up until the day the planned World War III breaks out.

I told the Cutting Edge accountant that, while the Plan calls for an economic collapse, it will not occur separately from other planned world events. Therefore, Israel must be ready to go to war, China must be ready to attack Taiwan, North Korea must be ready to play her part in the nuclear confrontation on the Korean Peninsula, natural disasters must be striking, cities must be going up in flames from full-scale rioting, and aliens and their spacecrafts must be landing on earth, and oh, yes, a spiritual superman claiming to be the Jewish Messiah and Jesus Christ must have appeared east of Jerusalem.

Economic collapse is part and parcel of this total package of planned disasters which is designed to truly panic the world into accepting complete loss of their freedoms. Until the world reaches this point, the Illuminati will keep the global economy operating strongly enough that Americans "feel prosperous".

A few weeks ago, we postulated that the real reason oil and gas prices were being driven higher -- in the absence of any concrete market reason -- was that the Bush Administration wanted a "crisis" boiling while Congress was passing its Energy Program, a program which will allow oil drilling in the most coveted place in the 50 states -- Northern Alaska. Once Congress passed this legislation, the same people now driving the world prices upward can then allow them to drop to normal market levels.

In this regard, we offer the following two news stories:

NEWS BRIEF: "House passes energy bill; conflict with Senate likely over gas additive, Alaska refuge", The Boston Globe, April 21, 2005

"WASHINGTON -- The House approved a far-ranging energy bill Thursday that would open an Alaska wildlife refuge to oil drilling and shield makers of a controversial gasoline additive from environmental lawsuits -- both issues likely to meet strong opposition in the Senate. The bill also would funnel more than $12 billion in tax breaks and subsidies to energy companies."

Once this bill passes and is signed into law, current gas and oil prices can be allowed to retreat to normal levels. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan hinted at this reality last week, when he noted his belief that price levels would retreat because there was no market reason for the price spike. Listen:

NEWS BRIEF: "US Fed chief tries to stem oil worries", By Adam Porter in Perpignan, France, reprinted by Al Jajazeera News, April 8, 2005

"Alan Greenspan, the chairman of the US Federal Reserve, has sought to stem worries over spiraling energy prices, saying difficulties associated with inadequate domestic supplies will eventually be resolved ... Indeed, the process is already under way ... Greenspan also said investment was needed to boost production ..."

Remember this whenever you hear scary economic news: check the rest of the planned disasters to see how close we are to them occurring, for all these planned disasters are designed to happen as a package -- together. Indeed, the entire disaster scenario I have listed, above, is designed to occur within 13 weeks (91 days), according to former Satanist, Doc Marquis. Until then, Americans must be kept "feeling prosperous".

IV. Speaking of timetables for a possible beginning of this total "package of planned disasters", we offer these two news stories.

NEWS BRIEF: "Israel expects full-scale Mideast war in 2006", Jerusalem News Wire, April 22, 2005

"JERUSALEM - Israel has reportedly expressed its belief to Washington that Iran and several of its Arab allies are preparing for a full-scale war against the Jewish state, possibly following the expected US withdrawal from Iraq in 2006. Unnamed US officials told Middle East Newsline this week that according to Israeli assessments, the departure of most American forces from the region would lead to increased tensions and provide an atmosphere ripe for an escalation of violence. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon 'has relayed repeated messages to the administration that Iran and its Arab allies were preparing for war', one official said."

Israel's Sharon government must know something that has not yet been fully publicized: that the Bush Administration is going to withdraw from Iraq sometime around the end of 2005. Bush Administration officials have hinted at a firm plan for withdrawal and American forces are frenziedly trying to train Iraqi security forces to defend their own country, but until this article, I had never seen an actual date for withdrawal.

Since global Illuminized Freemasonry is orchestrating events in the Middle East, including Israel, we can only note the amazing "coincidence" that this date of the end of the year may coincide with the time when Israel finally gets 99.3% of the Palestinian population separated from the Jewish, a subject we carried toward the beginning of this newsletter.

In this vein, we note that Sharon has put off once again the beginning of the forced evacuation of Jewish settlers from Gaza.

NEWS BRIEF: "Israeli minister OKs Gaza pullout delay", China Daily News, 4-22-2005

"Israel's defense minister on Thursday recommended briefly delaying Israel's planned withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, the strongest indication yet that the summer pullout will be pushed back ... The Haaretz daily reported late Thursday that Sharon will approve the delay ... Mofaz met with top Israeli security officials, including army and police commanders, to discuss a proposal to delay the pullout by three weeks, until Aug. 15 ... The issue is ostensibly religious. The July 25 start date of the forced evacuation of settlers falls within a three-week mourning period leading up to Tisha B'Av on Aug. 14, when Jews mark the destruction of the biblical temples. Mofaz decided to take into account the feelings of settlers, most of whom are Orthodox Jews."

Remember that this Gaza evacuation is only the beginning of the forced evacuations. Following Gaza will come the forcible evictions of settlers from selected West Bank settlements. Israeli officials have expressed concern that the people of the West Bank may be more difficult to move because they are more strident in their opposition.

Therefore, it is not unreasonable to expect that the combined Israel forced evictions and the completion of enough of the security barrier to keep the Palestinians in their places might be completed toward the end of 2005. We believe that Israel cannot wait too long to go to war after completing these withdrawals and after finishing the security fence, because the plight of the Palestinian people in their new prison will immediately begin to disintegrate, attracting the world's attention.

Of course, the Israeli government must make it appear that the Palestinians started the war.


V. The Iraqi war took an ominous turn this week when insurgents successfully downed a civilian helicopter with a missile, killing 11 highly placed civilians. If the insurgency begins to use shoulder-fired missiles against our military airplanes and helicopters, the war could turn ugly very quickly. Saddam's forces had several thousand anti-aircraft missiles prior to the March 20, 2003, invasion; are they beginning to use them now?

NEWS BRIEF: "BAGHDAD, Iraq - Insurgents brought down a Russian-made helicopter carrying 11 civilians with missile fire north of the capital Thursday and said they captured and shot to death the lone crew member who survived. The dead from the crash included six American bodyguards for U.S. diplomats. The chartered flight was believed to be the first civilian aircraft shot down in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion two years ago."

This paragraph tells us that 6 "American bodyguards for U.S. diplomats" were among those killed. Later, this article stated that the aircraft took off from the heavily-defended "Green Zone", bringing to the forefront the question as to whether the Coalition has a mole on the inside giving the schedule of flights and who is on board, to the Iraqi insurgency. Several months ago, an anonymous American military officer was quoted as saying that one of the reasons we were going to lose this war was because the insurgency had completely infiltrated the Iraqi government and security services. If such a spy was working inside the Green Zone, it is not inconceivable that he or she would have access to such flight information.

But, as we continue through this news article, we see the identity of these American "bodyguards".

"The six Americans were employed by Blackwater Security Consulting, a subsidiary of North Carolina-based security contractor Blackwater USA, which had four employees slain and mutilated by insurgents in Fallujah a year ago. The Americans killed in Thursday's crash were assisting the Bureau of Diplomatic Security in protecting U.S. diplomats in Iraq ... The helicopter went down about 12 miles north of Baghdad. Associated Press Television News footage showed burning wreckage from the craft and personal belongings scattered across a wide area." (Ibid.)

These mercenaries from Blackwater Security Consulting are earning hefty six-figure salaries to bring their military prowess into this war on behalf of the Coalition Forces. In fact, one of the reasons Rumsfeld felt comfortable in the beginning about committing so few American troops was because he knew he had this private army ready to fight for the American side. These Soldiers of Fortune are greatly hated by the Iraqi people and by the insurgents, partly because of their effectiveness and their brutality.

Another part of this story reveals this hatred.

" 'Heroes of the Islamic Army downed a transport aircraft belonging to the army of the infidels and killed its crew and those on board in the regions of al-Taji north of Baghdad', the Islamic Army in Iraq group said in a written statement posted on the Web with a video purporting to show the shooting of the survivor. In the video, which shows burning wreckage and two charred bodies, militants come across an injured man wearing a blue flightsuit lying tall grass. "It's broken," the survivor says in accented English, apparently referring to his leg, as militants unseen except in brief glances ¡ª tell him to stand up. "Weapons? Weapons?" the gunmen ask him in Arabic and English as he stands uneasily.

They tell him, 'Go!, and he starts to hobble away, holding his hands up toward them. The gunmen then open fire, shouting 'Allahu akbar', or 'God is great', with the bullets hitting his body. They fire more shots into his body on the ground. The Islamic Army statement said it killed the survivor 'in revenge for the Muslims who have been killed in cold blood in the mosques of tireless Fallujah before the eyes of the world and on television screens, without anyone condemning them'. It was apparently referring to the shooting by an American soldier of a wounded Iraqi in a Fallujah mosque on Nov. 13 during a U.S. offensive in the city."


BOOK or VIDEO VI. Last week, a tragedy occurred as an Aid worker for the Human Rights Watch group was killed by a suicide bomber.
For days after her death, co-workers lamented her untimely demise, saying they could not understand why the insurgency would kill someone who had labored so diligently for the average Iraqi citizen.

Suddenly, an explanation was given, and the finger of accusation pointed to the American military, in more ways than one.

NEWS BRIEF: "Aid worker uncovered America's secret tally of Iraqi civilian deaths", By Andrew Buncombe in Washington, The Independent (U.K.), 20 April 2005

"A week before she was killed by a suicide bomber, humanitarian worker Marla Ruzicka forced military commanders to admit they did keep records of Iraqi civilians killed by US forces ... in an essay Ms Ruzicka wrote a week before her death on Saturday and published yesterday, the 28-year-old revealed that a Brigadier General told her it was 'standard operating procedure' for US troops to file a report when they shoot a non-combatant."

During the time President Bill Clinton was in office, many journalists noted that many people in and around Clinton were turning up dead. At the time, we noted three basic reasons a person close to Bill Clinton might turn up dead:

1) If a person threatens Clinton's attainment of power
2) If a person threatens the Clinton's ability to keep his political power
3) If a person threatens to expose the unseemly, even illegal activities in which Bill Clinton had participated. This reason is the most powerful; if a person could legally and/or politically threaten Bill Clinton, his life was in dire danger.

The American military has been leaving a number of dead people in her wake, most notably journalists who saw something they were not supposed to see, or had filmed something they were not supposed to film. Enough foreign journalists have been killed that international attention is being brought to bear on this unseemly story.

Do you remember the story which broke with great fury in early March, when an Italian journalist who had been held hostage by Iraqi insurgents was suddenly released into the custody of two Italian secret service agents; they rented a car, hustled the Italian reporter into it and took off for the airport. The agents reportedly informed American authorities of their trip, and indeed, had passed through the final checkpoint at the airport when American troops opened fire on the vehicle.

One of the secret service agents threw his body over the journalist and phoned the Italian Prime Minister. He was on the phone with the PM when American bullets hit him, killing him almost instantly. The journalist survived. A story which appeared at that time quoted an Italian government official as saying, "'Giuliana had information, and the US military did not want her to survive', he added." (Newsletter for March 11, 2005, Paragraph VIII)

Thus, the American military has developed a reputation for killing journalists who pose a threat to their continued operation and/or a threat to the Public Relations War which the Pentagon has carefully crafted. One of the most important secrets the Pentagon needs to hide is the true number of Iraqi civilians we have killed. A British Think Tank study published late last year posted a figure of at least 100,000 civilians who have died at American hands since the invasion (Newsletter for October 30, 2005, Paragraph VIII)

Believe me, this is one story the Pentagon really wants to cover up. Therefore, it is a very big deal when a humanitarian worker obtains such solid information that American authorities not only are killing civilians, but are keeping track of those numbers, that she forces an American Brigadier General to admit that the Army followed a "standard operating procedure' for US troops to file a report when they shoot a non-combatant."

This information, should it go fully public, would terribly embarrass President Bush, who has long touted that he invaded Iraq for the purest of motives, i.e., to "liberate" them from Saddam, give them democracy and freedom. How much information did this aid worker actually obtain?

"She obtained figures for the number of civilians killed in Baghdad between 28 February and 5 April, and discovered that 29 had been killed in firefights involving US forces and insurgents. This was four times the number of Iraqi police killed.

"These statistics demonstrate that the US military can and does track civilian casualties', she wrote ... Sam Zia-Zarifi, deputy director of the Asia division of Human Rights Watch, the group for which Ms Ruzicka wrote the report, said her discovery 'was very important because it allows the victims to start demanding compensation'." (Ibid.)

Now we are at the crux of the problem, aren't we? Publishing internal records from the American military would not only prove highly embarrassing to the Public Relations picture we have painted, but it would also open the American government up to huge lawsuits from potentially tens of thousands of family members of the victims. Lawsuits also drag out in court for many months and sometimes years; therefore, the Public Relations disaster could last interminably.

Did the American government have anything to do with this suicide attack? We shall never know, but one thing is certain: the American war effort is better off because of this attack.

VII. Iraqi insurgents intensified their effort to kill national Iraqis supporting the Americans, and they very nearly got a "big fish".

NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq's PM Allawi Survives Assassination Bid", Swiss Info, April 21, 2005

"BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's caretaker prime minister survived an assassination attempt by a suicide bomber on Wednesday on the eve of an expected announcement of a new government, as insurgent violence regained momentum. Iyad Allawi escaped unhurt when a suicide bomber in a car attacked his convoy as he headed home from a meeting on a new cabinet line-up ... The attack came hours after President Jalal Talabani announced that he hoped the new government would be finalized on Thursday -- more than 11 weeks after Iraq's historic elections. One policeman was killed in the blast and four were wounded, police said."

As Prime Minister serving the Americans totally, Allawi became hated when he "authorized" American forces to attack and virtually annihilate several Iraqi towns. Several months ago, some of his family members were briefly taken hostage to try to force him to change his policies as he inevitably realized that, at some time in the future, he might be the target.

That "sometime" occurred Wednesday, April 20, and Allawi was fortunate enough to escape with his life.

Others were not so fortunate.

NEWS BRIEF: "Blasts Rock Baghdad" Scotsman, 20 April 2005

"Three loud explosions rocked the Iraqi capital tonight, including a suicide car bomb which was detonated near a police checkpoint, killing one policeman and wounding two, and a roadside bomb that injured four Iraqis ... The other blast sent white smoke rising from the heavily fortified Green Zone, where the Iraqi government, embassies and US soldiers are located ... In central Baghdad, the powerful roadside bomb exploded as an Iraqi police patrol truck was driving past, wounding three policemen and a civilian walking nearby ... Three other car bombs exploded in Baghdad during the day today, killing a total of four Iraqis and wounding 13, police said."

NEWS BRIEF: "69 bodies found in Baghdad", International News, 21 April 2005

"Fifty bodies have been found in the Tigris river south of Baghdad while nineteen bodies have been recovered from a sports centre north of Baghdad ... President Jalal Talabani said the 50 bodies recovered from the Tigris river included men, women and children. Sunni militants kidnapped 50 Shiite people last Saturday from a town near Baghdad, he added."

Later news stories debunked the idea that these 50 bodies were part of the hostages supposedly taken by insurgents.

NEWS BRIEF: "19 Iraqi soldiers killed by insurgents", Khaleej Times, 20 April 2005

"Baghdad - Insurgents killed 19 Iraqi soldiers in the western city of Hadithah on Wednesday ... the soldiers were on their way to provide support to US troops when their convoy was attacked in the city 350 kilometres west of Baghdad. Nineteen National Guard members were kidnapped before being executed."

NEWS BRIEF: "Iraq group says it killed defence minister’s adviser", Khaleej Times, 20 April 2005

"DUBAI - An Iraqi militant group was behind the killing of a senior Iraqi official this week ... Major-General Adnan Midhish Kharagoli, an adviser to the defence minister, was killed along with his nephew when 10 gunmen burst into his Baghdad home on Monday, the Iraqi Interior Ministry has said ..."

An Iraqi militant group claimed responsibility for the assassination of this senior Iraq official, saying "it was in revenge for the women and children’s blood that flowed in Falluja while the infidels stood by mocking them".

The blood continues to flow in Iraq, with the fighting showing no signs of abating any time soon.

VIII. President Bush dug deeply into his supply of trusted insider advisers, nominating John Negroponte to be the first ever American Intelligence Czar.

NEWS BRIEF: "The Negroponte challenge", By B Raman, Asia Times, 19 April 2005

"US President George W Bush announced on Thursday his nomination of John Negroponte, an officer of the US foreign service who is currently the US ambassador to Iraq, as the first US director of national intelligence (DNI). He is to assume the post after he is confirmed by the Senate ... As recommended by the 9-11 National Commission, which submitted its report last year, Negroponte will oversee the functioning of all the national agencies of the US intelligence community ... "

We have spoken often about the "white-wash" nature of the 9-11 National Commission. After they finished their official investigation and issued their report, a Zogby poll revealed that they had single-handily convinced 50% of New York City residents that the government knew of the 9/11 attacks ahead of time and did nothing to prevent them (Read NEWS1956 for full details). The commission was so heavy-handed in the manner in which they treated real evidence and the real family members of the 9/11 victims that the government WAS complicit in 9/11.

Getting back to John Negroponte, he will head an intelligence behemoth which will begin to function in such a manner as to put American rights and liberties at risk. As the world heads toward its planned global crises, this intelligence department will have done its preparatory work on gathering information about the government's "domestic terrorists", dissidents and gun owners who will likely oppose the government as it suspends the Constitution so it can "deal with" the terrorist threat.

A quick check on John Negroponte reveals that he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) ["Who's Who of the Elite"]. Bush continues to use only approved Illuminist officials in his administration.

VHS or DVD IX. In another indication that the world is heading into the end of the "preparatory period" leading up to the beginning of the World War III which is designed to produce Antichrist on the world scene, the United States is warning that North Korea may be about to conduct is first-ever nuclear weapons test.

NEWS BRIEF: "USA Warns North Korea May Be Preparing Nuke Test" Drudge Report, Friday, April 22, 2005

"The U.S. has quietly warned China that North Korea could be preparing for a nuclear-weapons test and asked the Chinese to urge Pyongyang to desist, according to a U.S. official. In what the U.S. official characterized as an 'emergency demarche', or diplomatic communication, delivered to Beijing Thursday, Washington said that, in light of recent North Korean words and actions, a test could be in the works."

Make no mistake about the fact that a nuclear confrontation on the Korean Peninsula is planned as part of the World War III scenario. Cutting Edge has been alone in our repeated warnings about this matter for the past 10 years. Listen to the exact wording of the Illuminati Plan:

"But then war will seldom be absent from the world-scene during the last twenty years of the century. There will be numerous local conflicts in the Far East, the Middle East, and Africa. A hair-raising nuclear confrontation in Korea may, towards the end of the period, threaten man's very survival." [Peter Lemesurier, The Armageddon Script: Prophecy In Action, Page 222-3]

Note several factors about this planned nuclear confrontation on the Korean Peninsula:

1. It will occur "towards the end of the period" - Therefore, if we really see North Korea explode a nuclear device, we will know that the world is at the "end of the period" leading up to the beginning of the World War III Final Birth Pangs War (Matthew 24:6-8)

2. This nuclear confrontation is going to be so extremely severe that it will "threaten man's very survival." Notice that this wording does not say "threaten America's survival", but "mankind's survival". This means that, once North Korea has proven to the world that she really does possess the nuclear bomb, she will also demonstrate her capability to deliver that bomb to far reaches of the world.

Once again, Cutting Edge has recognized for many years that, not only has North Korea possessed the nuclear capability for about a decade, but she has had long-range ballistic capability for about two years. We posted an article on this subject -- NEWS1781 -- in 2003. This article contains a map of the world showing the reach of North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missiles. It makes for sobering reading.

Now, let us return to the Drudge Report:

"The WALL STREET JOURNAL reported Friday evening: The demarche also says that the U.S. believes the North Korean nuclear program is advanced enough that a test could come with little or no warning ... In addition, the U.S. official said that spy satellites have observed heightened activity at missile sites as well as 'at various suspect sites' in North Korea where it is believed underground tests could be carried out."

If North Korea really does conduct a nuclear weapons test, President Bush will suffer a major loss of face. For the entire time of his administration, he has denied that North Korea already possesses a nuclear capability; rather, his intelligence services have repeatedly stated that North Korea is pursuing a nuclear bomb and may achieve it unless diplomatic and/or military action is taken.

During repeated "negoatiations" with North Korea on her nuclear capability, the Bush Administration has been incredibly rude, deliberately acting to offend the Oriental sensibilities of the North Koreans! (Read NEWS1805 for full details)

When North Korea finally demonstrates both her existing nuclear capability and her ability to deliver it across continents, remember that this crisis is part of the plan to produce Antichrist; Peter Lemesurier's book was written in 1981 and distributed through New Age bookstores. President Bush will not have been taken by surprise nor will American intelligence services have suffered another "Intelligence Failure"; rather, they will have been acting out a well-rehearsed script, just as Lemesurier stated:

"Their script is now written, subject only to last-minute editing and stage-directions. The stage itself, albeit as yet in darkness, is almost ready. Down in the pit, the subterranean orchestra is already tuning up. The last-minute, walk-on parts are even now being filled. Most of the main actors ... have already taken up their roles. Soon it will be time for them to come on stage, ready for the curtain to rise. The time for action will have come." [Ibid., p. 252]

With Israel getting toward the end of their population separation from the Palestinians, she is getting close to the point when she can go to war, thus starting the Middle East regional conflict which is planned to start the Third World War; the second planned war after the Middle East blows up is the Korean Peninsula nuclear confrontation. Therefore, we should not be too surprised to learn that North Korea may be planning a nuclear test.

All elements are marching to the same beat, all are acting according to the same global script.

The final war of this World War III scenario is China invading Taiwan. Very recently, China has passed a law which gives her the legal right to invade Taiwan, and the Chinese military has added even more theater missiles aimed at the island nation.

All elements seem to be coming to climax at the same time. We shall just have to wait to see how events play out -- remembering that Jesus Christ is in control, and that all these events are fulfilling the "Final Birth Pangs" prophecies of Matthew 24:6-8 (Read NEWS1408)

---------Conclusion----------------""Can the rush grow up without mire?" Job 8:11

The rush is spongy and hollow, and even so is a hypocrite; there is no substance or stability in him. It is shaken to and fro in every wind just as formalists yield to every influence; for this reason the rush is not broken by the tempest, neither are hypocrites troubled with persecution. I would not willingly be a deceiver or be deceived; perhaps the text for this day may help me to try myself whether I be a hypocrite or no. The rush by nature lives in water, and owes its very existence to the mire and moisture wherein it has taken root; let the mire become dry, and the rush withers very quickly. Its greenness is absolutely dependent upon circumstances, a present abundance of water makes it flourish, and a drought destroys it at once.

Is this my case? Do I only serve God when I am in good company, or when religion is profitable and respectable? Do I love the Lord only when temporal comforts are received from His hands? If so I am a base hypocrite, and like the withering rush, I shall perish when death deprives me of outward joys. But can I honestly assert that when bodily comforts have been few, and my surroundings have been rather adverse to grace than at all helpful to it, I have still held fast my integrity? then have I hope that there is genuine vital godliness in me. The rush cannot grow without mire, but plants of the Lord's right hand planting can and do flourish even in the year of drought. A godly man often grows best when his worldly circumstances decay. He who follows Christ for his bag is a Judas; they who follow for loaves and fishes are children of the devil; but they who attend Him out of love to Himself are His own beloved ones. Lord, let me find my life in Thee, and not in the mire of this world's favour or gain. [C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions"]
