---------- Inspiration For the Week-------"I am almost in eternity; I long to be there to praise and glorify God"
This celebrated missionary to the Indians was born at Haddam, Connecticut, April 20, 1718. His parents were noted for their piety, and were closely related to high officials of the church and state.
In 1739 he entered Yale College, where he stood first in his class. He was greatly favored of God in being privileged to attend the great revival conducted by Whitefield, Jonathan Edwards and Tenent.
President Edwards says, in his memoir of Brainerd: "His great work was the priceless example of his piety, zeal and self devotion. Why, since the days of the apostles none have surpassed him. His uncommon intellectual gifts, his fine personal qualities, his melancholy and his early death, as well as his remarkable holiness and evangelistic labors, have conspired to invest his memory with a book halo, and the story of his life has been a potent force in the modern missionary era. It is related of Henry Martyn that, while perusing the life of David Brainerd, his soul was filled with a holy emulation of that extraordinary man, and after deep consideration and fervent prayer, he was at length fixed in a resolution to imitate his example."
Brainerd was a representative man, formed both by nature and grace to leave a lasting impression upon the piety of the church.
He died at Northampton, Oct. 9, 1747. The last words of this dying apostle were, "I am almost in eternity. I long to be there. My work is done. I have done with my friends; all the world is nothing to me. Oh, to be in heaven to praise and glorify God with His holy angels."
(Rev. S.B. Shaw, "Dying Testimonies of Saved and Unsaved", #171)

* "Emerging Viruses - AIDS and Ebola" - Video by Dr. Len Horowitz - VHS Only
With man-made viruses sweeping our earth, this video is a must-see to understand what is occurring and why.
First in-depth exploration into the origins of HIV and Ebola. Claims that these "emerging viruses" naturally evolved and then jumped species from ape to man seem grossly unfounded in light of the compelling evidence assembled in this extraordinary video. Alternatively, the possibility that these bizarre germs were laboratory creations, accidentally or intentionally transmitted via tainted hepatitis and smallpox vaccines in the U.S. and Africa - as numerous authorities have alleged - is investigated and disproven.
Reviews the numerous viral vaccine studies conducted simultaneously in New York City and Central West Africa by a narrow network of virologists working for major military-medical contractors under the auspices of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Demonstrates how these new viruses were created under direction of Department of Defense. While we do not agree with Dr. Horowitz' Mystic Judaism/New Age/Christianity, the science he provides in this video is both correct and vital to your understanding of such new viruses as SARS.
Proof positive that AIDS and Ebola were CREATED in a scientific laboratory and may be part of the created sicknesses which will kill mankind during the Tribulation Period. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=586
* "AIDS: The Unnecessary Epidemic", Book by Dr. Stanley Monteith
"This AIDS epidemic represents a unique and historically unprecedented threat to the long-term health of our entire country. For the first time ever, a deadly disease is so politically protected, standard public health techniques that would normally control the plague have not been implemented. After reading this book, you will have to wonder if we aren't seeing the first disease of the terrible global plagues that are a part of the Seal Judgment Number Four of Revelation 6:8 that together kill one-fourth of mankind! -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=198
* DVD - "Russia's Secret Weapon Designed To Defeat America - Scalar Weapons Revealed!"
This DVD discloses astounding news about Russia's super-secret weapons which will easily defeat America. This weapons system is called "Scalar Weaponry" and possesses the capability to knock out anything on the land, under the sea, on the sea, or in the air. This "energetics" weapons system will render all conventional weapons of war totally obsolete.
This weapons system will change the world and how mankind conducts war - forever.
Cutting Edge reports on this weapons system in NEWS1776 and NEWS1776b. Listen to this quote from Col. Byron Weeks - We are weaker now than we have ever been. Bush´s bravado is empty, and even if we do have the Tesla howitzer, so do Russia and China, and Russia has had scalar EM weapons longer--long enough to have tried and tested various forms of them many times. But although we evidently do have some HAARP powered weapons, physicist LTC Thomas Beardon says we don´t have much, if any, and our scalar weaponry is not yet ready to deploy effectively ...." "If attacked, our ground forces will be as vulnerable as sitting ducks, out on the hot sandy desert with no place to hide. America´s cities and outmoded ABM systems will not protect us ... we can expect to be attacked on all sides, with nuclear bombs, neutron bombs, EMPs, and the longitudinal electromagnetic interferometer waves that will come down upon us as fire from heaven. America will burn ..." America's HAARP is no match for Russia's Scalar!

*"God The Master Mathematician", Book by Dr. Hutchings
The Bible is the most numerically constructed book in the world! Many early church fathers, ministers, and theologians wrote of the complex mathematical designs in Scripture, proving that only a Master Mathematician could have directed this numerical construction. The fact that the 66 books of the Bible, written over a period of 1,600 years by 40 or more writers, most not having preceding or succeeding books, yet continuing the amazing mathematical patterns, proves that a Master Mathematician was in charge. This book will not drown you in math or technical details, but is written simply to demonstrate that the Master Mathematician who inspired the Scriptures is the same Lord Jesus Christ Who is able to save to the uttermost all who come to Him in faith. If you have a skeptical friend, he or she needs this book!

* "Dating Fossils and Rocks" - DVD - VHS
Mike Riddle, former Olympic athlete and Microsoft communications expert has become a much-in-demand creation speaker for ICR. His educational and entertaining lectures are now on DVD for all to enjoy.
Carbon-14 and Radioisotope dating methods—are they reliable? What are the underlying assumptions? Mike Riddle, adjunct professor at the Institute for Creation Research and teacher at ICR graduate school, addresses these issues in a very clear and easy-to-understand presentation.
Staff Comment: As Cutting edge webmaster I have viewed this tape and was quite impressed. I have a background in physics, biology, astronomy and chemistry and as a diver have collected many fossils from fossil beds in river bottoms. This tape impressed me because it gives the details of these dating methods while using down to earth illustrations that anyone can understand. Once you see the false assumptions that these dating methods use, you will see just how inaccurate and useless they really are.

---------- This Weeks Hot News ----------
|"Key Word Greek and Hebrew Study Bible"|
I. Israel officially began her Unilateral Withdrawal from the Gaza Strip this week by clamping a military closure on all roads leading into and out of the area. What is the stated goal of this withdrawal? To render the Biblical land now known as the Gaza Strip "Jew-free".
NEWS BRIEF: "Gaza closed, as disengagement gets underway", Jerusalem News Wire, July 13, 2005
"Prime Minister Ariel Sharon Wednesday ordered security forces to bar entry to the Gaza Strip to all Israelis who do not officially reside in the area. Gaza is to remain a closed military zone until all area Jews have been forcibly evacuated under Sharon's 'disengagement' plan. The timing of the move is seen as an attempt to prevent a planned influx of anti-pullout activists into Gaza next week ... Israeli media noted that the closure is the first physically significant step towards implementation of the withdrawal."
Prime Minister Sharon ordered the IDF to militarily close the Gaza Strip to all non-resident Jews to prevent anti-disengagement activists from flooding into the area on Monday, July 18, and thereafter; such an opposition tactic would present the IDF great headaches, for it would present them with tens of thousands of additional people they would have to remove. Better to prevent these activists from ever entering the area than to allow them entry and then have to physically remove them.
The Israeli mass media correctly noted that this action officially begins the Unilateral Withdrawal. Sharon set August 15 (the day after the "9th of Av" day of mourning) as the first day of forced evacuation, but this early action by the IDF certainly does start the withdrawal process early.
However, the next segment of this article presents the stark truth -- a truth which Cutting Edge has been predicting for many years now.
"The Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza decried the decision as 'the first time in history that a Jewish prime minister blockades Jewish communities and declares a part of Israel Jews-free'.” (Ibid.; Emphasis added)
Another current news article captures the fact that the ultimate goal of the withdrawal is to completely remove all Jews from this part of the land which God gave to the Tribe of Judah -- as you can clearly see from the map, left.
Another news article also presents the fact that no Jew will be left behind.
NEWS BRIEF: "Disengagement by the Numbers", Israel Insider, July 12, 2005
"After numerous fruitless bids to find a partner for peace with the Palestinians, in August 2005 Israel will carry out its disengagement initiative. Israel will hand over all of Gaza and part of the West Bank to the Palestinians, making it the first country in modern history to give up land acquired in a defensive war. During this summer's planned pullout:
* 100% of the Gaza Strip will be evacuated and handed over to the Palestinians
* 300 square miles of the West Bank will be evacuated.
* 21 Israeli settlements will be uprooted in the Gaza Strip
* 4 Israeli settlements will be uprooted in the West Bank.
* 9,000 is the approximate number of Israelis, including 1,700 Israeli families, currently living in the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank. All of them will be moved out as part of the withdrawal
* 45,000 Israeli soldiers and policemen are expected to participate in the Gaza withdrawal
* 48 graves in the Gush Katif Cemetery, including six graves of area residents murdered by terrorists, will be uprooted (and moved)
After the withdrawal:
* 430,000 West Bank Palestinians will be able to move freely within and between Palestinian controlled areas
* 0 Israelis, dead or alive, will remain in Gaza
"Jew-free" is the end goal of the Oslo Peace Accords, for the reason we set forth in NEWS1422, "The Coming Prophesied Annihilation of the House of Esau - Today's Palestinians". We posted this article in October, 2000, and have received our share of derision since then. However, that volume of disbelief has dramatically declined lately, as news reports are obviously moving in this direction.
Why is Israel completely separating the Jewish population from the Palestinian? To fulfill the annihilating prophecy of Obadiah 15-18, as explained in the above article. Listen to what we foretold in October, 2000, as to how Israel would annihilate the Palestinians as prophesied in this Scripture.
"Obadiah 15-18 foretells the annihilation by fire of an entire nation,
the House of Esau, which are the Palestinians ... If God's judgment of 100%
annihilation is to be carried out by Israel -- as Obadiah 18 states -- what
kind of action would be necessary to carry out such a population genocide,
while protecting Jewish citizens?
I believe the Oslo Peace Accord was the specific outworking of the Israeli decision to annihilate the Arabs during the next Arab-Israeli war, a position explained by that editorial in the June, 1990, edition of the Jewish Press. You see, the Oslo Peace Accord is an ingenious trap for the Arab, they are about to fall into it, and be annihilated. "
"Now, ask yourself what one geographical reality would a military commander wish to face if he knew he would soon be called upon to totally annihilate a civilian population, especially when such population is in very close physical proximity to your own citizens? Why, you would want that targeted population to be physically separated from your own population, would you not? In fact, a military commander would want to pull 100% of his own people out of the targeted areas just before he began his annihilating action. From my experience in U.S. Military Intelligence, I can tell you that an analyst would be looking for just this kind of action to occur, thinking that, when minority citizens are pulled out of the targeted cities and towns, this action would be a signal that large-scale attack was imminent ... If this separation includes the forcible evacuation of Jewish citizens living within the Arab enclave, you can know this prophesied annihilation is about to begin."
We penned these words in October, 2000 (NEWS1422), and they are presently coming true, in your Daily News! When you see the annihilation of the entire Palestinian people, you will know that the Rapture is very close. The war on the Palestinians will occur in the context of a Middle East Regional War as Israel fights a combination force comprised of Palestinians, Egyptians, Syrians, and Jordanians (Read NEWS1056 for full details).
And, if the Ark of the Covenant is "discovered" prior to the completion of the forced evacuation, you can positively know the end is very near.
II. In a stunning reversal, Sharon's Vice Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, told the Jerusalem Post that the forced evacuation should only take two weeks! For many months now, Sharon officials have stated that the Unilateral Withdrawal could take months, and that the IDF was totally unprepared; now, that story line appears to have a ruse, for Sharon's key assistant has now told the world that the pullout will only take weeks -- not months. Further, the IDF showed its preparedness for the evacuation by expertly shutting off the entire Gaza Strip, preventing many thousands of protestors from flooding the area.
It would appear that Sharon and the Israeli Defense Force are more prepared to execute the withdrawal than the protestors are to block it. Protestors are threatening to block roads and streets all throughout Israel, at least twice a week. Organizers hope to so tie up local police forces that the forced evacuation will be hampered.
NEWS BRIEF: "Vice Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to 'Post': Pullout should only take two weeks", The Jerusalem Post, July 10, 2005
"Though disengagement is 'a major undertaking for Israel' and a 'very painful' one, it will likely take no longer than two weeks to carry out from start to finish, Vice Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said over the weekend. 'I think it will take no more than two weeks. I think that it shouldn't take more than two weeks', he said ... The intention, rather, was to 'focus on the short period starting on the 17th [of August] and carry out [disengagement] as fast as possible'."
This revelation must have shocked anti-disengagement people, because government rhetoric, as dutifully reported by Mass Media, has always told the story that the forced evacuation would take months and would be such a major drain on the IDF and local police that officials had doubts it could all be done. Now, just weeks before the really official evacuations are to begin, Vice Prime Minister Olmert tells the truth: the pullout should be accomplished in two weeks. You can forgive the Jewish settlers if they feel a little bit betrayed. With limited resources and untrained leadership, the foes of evacuation do not stand a chance to stop the vaunted IDF from removing all Jews from the Gaza Strip and selected West Bank settlements.
Since the Security Barrier is as much a key to separating the Jewish population from the Palestinian as the Forced Evacuation, we should not be too surprised to see news concerning this barrier. News was swirling from both sides.
NEWS BRIEF: "Sharon´s Cabinet: Fence to Divide Jerusalem: Will leave Prime Minister Ariel Sharon open to charges that he has gone back on his promise never to divide the capital", Israel National News, July 11, 2005
"The Sharon-led Cabinet Sunday approved dividing Jerusalem physically. The security fence will put 55,000 Jerusalem Arabs outside of the barrier but there will be free passage. The cabinet did not explain why it is allowing the fence to cut through the united capital within Jerusalem's borders .... It also will leave Prime Minister Ariel Sharon open to charges that he has gone back on his promise never to divide the capital."
Once again, that old-time war general, Ariel Sharon, has double crossed his genuinely Conservative supporters. After years of assuring them that he would never, ever allow Jerusalem to be divided, he has now publicized his plans to do just that. After years of repeating the Conservative mantra that Jerusalem was eternally Israel's and was totally off the negotiating table, Sharon abruptly turns 180 degrees as he divides Jerusalem!
Can matters get any worse? Yes, they can, and they are about to. Prophecy tells us that the situation will get so bad that Israel's Archangel, Michael, shall have to "stand up" to defend Israel (Daniel 12:1)
The security barrier in this area is planned to have gates, through which the average Palestinian can daily pass so they can work, go to school and obtain special services not available in their area. Listen:
"... one effect of the cabinet decision will be to leave '55,000 residents, on the West Bank side, while including the largest Jewish West Bank settlement, Ma'aleh Adumim with close to 30,000 people, on the Jerusalem side' ... Arabs are incensed at the decision, which will require more than 3,000 school children to pass through the fence to go back and forth to school. Amir Chesin, a former Arab affairs adviser for the city of Jerusalem, insisted that the plan will not be implemented. 'I don't know if I should laugh or cry. I don't see thousands and thousands going through these checkpoints to go to school', he said."
The Sharon government is placing far greater emphasis on the completion of the security barrier than most people realize. Now that he has turned over responsibility to the IDF and has told the generals they face no budget restrictions, work will proceed very rapidly. We do not know if the completion of the security barrier will be at roughly the same time as the completion of the forced evacuation.
If the two projects are completed at roughly the same time, Israel will be ready to go to war earlier rather than later.
The Palestinians were infuriated by the Cabinet decision to divide Jerusalem with the barrier, even though that decision gave them part of the "eternal city".
NEWS BRIEF: "Palestinian Chairman Abbas sharply raps Israel’s Jerusalem defense barrier decision", DEBKAfile Intelligence, July 10, 2005
"Sunday, July 10, the Israeli government set a September deadline for finishing the long-stalled security fence designed to protect Jerusalem from terrorist attack. The finalized route leaves 55,000 Arab Jerusalem residents with Israeli ID on the other side, including Palestinians living in the Shuafat refugee camp. Twelve crossing points will be cut in the barrier to allow their transit back and forth. The Palestinian Authority chairman warns that the route could bring Palestinian-Israeli relations to an end and will serve neither peace nor Israeli security."
The Palestinians want their state, they want Jerusalem as their capitol, and they want Israel finally destroyed, but key leaders realize the trap into which they are being led, and are trying every device which they can conceive to stop this Oslo Peace Accord in its tracks. Almost daily, Kassam terror rockets and/or mortar shell bombardments strike Israeli targets.
As the next story indicates, suicide bombers are on the attack. However, Israel, the United States, and the Crown of England are really calling the shots, and their Forced Withdrawal plan will not be deterred.
As if to place a dramatic explanation point on the fury of the Palestinians at being thrown behind a huge security barrier, a Palestinian suicide bomber struck at a Jewish civilian target, a shopping center.
NEWS BRIEF: "Palestinian suicide bomber kills 2 in Israel" International Herald Tribune, July 13, 2005
"NETANYA, Israel A Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up Tuesday evening at a busy intersection outside a shopping mall in the Israeli coastal town of Netanya, killing himself and at least two others, and wounding 30 people, according to the Israeli police and rescue workers. Israel said the attack would not derail the planned Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, which is set for next month. But Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's spokesman said Israel was prepared to act against those responsible if the Palestinian Authority did not.
" ''We are not going to stop the disengagement',' Raanan Gissin, a spokesman for Sharon, said in reference to the Gaza pullout. ''But we are going to stop terrorism.'' The attack marked the second suicide bombing since the Israelis and Palestinians declared a truce in February. Overall violence has been down sharply since then, but there are still almost daily shootings and clashes."
How are we so sure the Palestinians know this plan will result in their annihilation, a genocide, an ethnic cleansing of all Palestinians? Nearly three years ago, we posted an article in which a Jewish professor claimed that Sharon's planned separation of populations would result in the "ethnic cleansing" of all Palestinians. We encourage you to take a moment to read this article.
NEWS1625 -- "Jewish Professor Accuses Sharon Government Of Planning 'Ethnic Cleansing' of Arabs In Israel"
Prophetic events are getting close to exploding. Are you spiritually prepared?
III. As Great Britain continued to reel from the dramatic bombing of July 7, some predictable news events began to unfold.
A. Politicians from Great Britain, the E.U., and even Australia began to call for severely restrictive laws, citing the attacks in London as the reason such laws are needed. We have posted a major new article on this subject and invite you to read it thoroughly.
NEWS2055 -- "On Cue, British, European Union, and Australian Propaganda Proposals Start Flowing - To Pass Stricter 'Anti-Terrorist' Measures In Order to 'Protect" Their Citizens". As predicted, British, E.U., and Australian authorities began calling for severely restrictive measures in order to "protect" their citizens against further terror attacks. Using the London "terror" attacks as the excuse, these leaders are copying the success President Bush enjoyed after 9/11: Destroying freedom and liberty in the guise of protecting them.
Please take a few moments to read this brand new article; you will find it very informative.
B. Calls began to pour forth, blaming "extremists" for the scourge of terror throughout the world. Early in my studies, I discovered something about "extremists". The Illuminati hates them fervently, in all religions. Since "tolerance" and "diversity" are the key words in their lexicon, any extremist position is loathed severely. Antichrist and his companion, False Prophet, will be required by God's prophecies to unite all the peoples of the world, with all their varying religious beliefs and cultural differences. Obviously, "tolerance" and "diversity" are the only tools which could possibly unite peoples of such religious, political, and cultural differences.
Extremists are, therefore, hated and one day they will all be killed. Further, the Illuminati realizes that the greatest "extremists" in the world come from the Monotheistic religions -- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Understanding how much Illuminist leaders hate "extremists" of all religions, the following news articles are both very interesting and very predictable. You might even think Prince Charles and Prime Minister Blair are reading from the same script.
NEWS BRIEF: "Root out extremists": Prince Charles urges", BBC News, 14 July 2005
"Prince Charles has urged 'every true Muslim' to root out extremist preachers in the wake of the London bomb attacks. An 'evil influence' appeared to have been brought to bear on the suspected bombers, whose 'atrocities' must be condemned, he told the Daily Mirror. Others must resist the temptation to condemn the Muslim community for the actions of an evil minority, he added."
This mantra was repeated often by President Bush following the attacks of 9/11. He repeatedly stated that the great majority of Muslims were peace-loving people and that the terrible atrocity of 9/11 was carried out only by a few religious "extremists".
"Muslim leaders say they are 'shocked' British Muslims may have been behind last Thursday's attacks. Some may think this cause is Islam. It is anything but. It is a perversion of traditional Islam," Prince Charles said. The prince said Muslim leaders were right to point out the attacks had no link to 'true faith'."
"Those who claim to have murdered in the name of Islam have no care for the lives they have so brutally destroyed. Offended by the good relations between faiths and cultures, the extremists seek to break up the communities that make up our modern, multi-cultural society',' the prince wrote." (Ibid.)
Prime Minister Tony Blair sounded a similar theme, but dropped a bombshell revelation.
NEWS BRIEF: "Uproot this ideology of evil" - Urges Muslims to confront the "perverted and poisonous" doctrines of Islamic extremism", The Guardian (Unlimited), July 14, 2005
"Tony Blair yesterday launched a campaign to help mainstream British Muslims confront the 'perverted and poisonous' doctrines of Islamic extremism in their midst, if necessary by excluding or deporting the religious extremists who foment it. He warned MPs that international cooperation would be needed to 'pull up this evil ideology by its roots' - in Britain and in unnamed countries where violence is sometimes 'taught at a very early age'. As part of a four-part plan to tackle the crisis exposed by last Thursday's atrocities, Mr Blair said he would open talks within two weeks about new anti-terror laws aimed at tackling incitement to terrorism."
The key words to be ferreted out of this paragraph are: "new anti-terror laws aimed at tackling incitement to terrorism".
"New laws" is the key goal of these type of public attacks. A tremendous surge of new laws came pouring forth from the US Congress in the two years following the attacks of 9/11. Today, the President of the United States has identical power and authority -- on paper -- which both Hitler and Stalin wielded during their heyday. Once the planned crises of the Final Birth Pangs War (World War III) erupt, the President will become the actual dictator "on the ground" which he now is on paper.
You can expect the very same result in Great Britain and many other countries, as we note in this newsletter, whose leaders are already publicly declaring the need to pass such restrictive laws -- in order to "fight terrorism". But, of course, the real enemies of the state are those domestic citizens whose value systems and religious belief systems are such that they could never accept the claims of the coming Masonic Christ (Antichrist). These people are on the "Red List", people considered the most dangerous to the planned polytheistic, dictatorial state.
Domestic citizens thought to be highly resistive to the coming New World Order are the real targets in this type of "hate crimes" legislation.
Even cooperative, mainstream Muslims jumped on the Prince's "extremist" bandwagon:
NEWS BRIEF: "US Muslims Issue TV Ad Defending Islam": Muslims must not let extremists hijack their faith", Arab News, 15 July 2005
"WASHINGTON, 15 July 2005 — Muslims must not let extremists hijack their faith, a prominent American Islamic group warned yesterday in a television public service announcement issued in the wake of the London bombings. Stung by criticisms that Islamic leaders have not done enough to condemn the blasts blamed by police on British Muslims, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) sent the spot to television stations across the United States."
“ 'We will not allow our faith to be hijacked by criminals', says one of the speakers on the advertisement, which features shots of Muslims speaking directly to the camera. 'Islam is not about hatred and violence; it is about peace and justice,” says another of the featured speakers, a young woman. CAIR leaders said the new TV spot was needed because persistent efforts by US Muslim leaders to condemn terror in the name of Islam had failed to penetrate public perceptions.
“ 'We don’t know why we are not breaking through that. Maybe the rising level of anti-Muslim rhetoric is drowning out our condemnation', said Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR’s national communications director."
Perhaps the problem is that the actions of Iraqi insurgents which daily slaughter men, women, and children in suicide bombings, plus those horrific beheadings, is speaking to the American public far more loudly than this false rhetoric. As my Daddy used to say, "Your actions are shouting so loudly, I cannot hear a thing you are saying".
IV. As Cutting Edge was noting an interesting pattern in the bombings, an article was posted on a major Australian news site that the bombers intended to set a "cross" symbol into the ground with their bombings.
NEWS BRIEF: "Plot to scar London with 'burning cross' ", smh.com.au, July 14, 2005
"London's four suspected suicide bombers had wanted to to scar the city with a ``burning cross'' of blasts in its north, south, east and west, in the hope of being declared Islamic martyrs ... The four suspects were caught on security cameras at London's Kings Cross station, heading off in different directions shortly before the three bombs went off near Aldgate, Edgware Road and Russell Square Underground stations early last Thursday. A fourth bomb exploded on a bus nearly an hour later."
"Police suspect three of the young men carried bombs east, west and south, while a fourth had planned to take the north-bound Northern Line, but, as this was disrupted, he changed plans and boarded a bus, London's Evening Standard said."
One Cutting Edge researcher had noted some interesting facts about the bombings as she plotted the actual bombing locations. Please now look at this map carefully, above. The circles drawn on the map represent the four locations at which the bombs went off, while the asterisks ( * ) depicts locations of interest.
1) Note that two of the bombs went off just south of the King's Cross subway station. This Australian news article, above, further states that the four bombers met King's Crossing subway station with the plans to head off in opposite directions. The bombers did get their explosions off to the east and west, but not to the north and the south, as this article states was their original plan.
Obviously, explosions would have had to be set off directly north and directly south of King's Cross for a "burning cross" to be etched on the ground. In this regard, I find it interesting that initial reports indicated that as many as six, and possibly seven, bombs had exploded. For a "burning cross" to have been created on the ground by these explosions, three more would have been ideal. Was that the plan, and were the other three bombers inhibited by chance circumstance from exploding their devices? We shall never know.
2) Notice the the British Medical Association headquarter building lies just across the street from the King's Cross explosion. As we explain in NEWS2054, this building was originally built by the Black Magick secret society, the House of Theosophy, as their headquarters. Because one of the bombs exploded very close to the location of such an occult location, fellow occultists throughout the world would have instantly recognized this location as highly symbolic.
3) Notice that just to the right (East) of the first bomb the Old Sessions House is located. This building is a major Masonic Lodge.
4) Just East of Old Sessions House lies the Tavistock Institute, home of the infamous Mind Control experiments since World War I. We explain this very important connection also in NEWS2054.
5) Notice that directly south of Bomb #1, and directly south of King's Cross station, lies the Freemason's Hall, the Grand Lodge of England. Had a bomb exploded close to this location, a southern point would have been established to create a "burning cross" on the ground. Only one more explosion would have been needed, northward of King's Cross station.
V. Since Global Terror is the weapon of choice by which the Illuminati plans to abolish the old system so they can bring in the new system -- New World Order -- no one should have been surprised that the "official concern" about terror is that it will "go global". We saw just this kind of story this week, tied to the London bombings, of course.
NEWS BRIEF: "Experts fear 'endless' terror war: Analysts say al-Qaida is mutating into a "global insurgency"
"New York and Washington. Bali, Riyadh, Istanbul, Madrid. And now London.
When will it end? Where will it all lead?
"The experts aren’t encouraged. One prominent terrorism researcher sees the prospect of 'endless' war. Adds the man who tracked Osama bin Laden for the CIA, 'I don’t think it’s even started yet'.”
Since the Kingdom of Antichrist is prophesied to be a global kingdom, you must realize that the "Wars and Rumors of Wars" (Matthew 24:6-8) which Jesus said would bring him to the world scene would be global. Therefore, it is entirely within prophecy that the Illuminati decided to create a global "Wars and Rumors of Wars" scenario using terrorism as their tool. Today, the world is twisting in the throes of just such global terrorism. Is it any wonder that the Bible foretells that the End of the Age will bring "perilous times, times of great stress and trouble, hard to deal with and hard to bear"? (2 Timothy 4:1; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Now, let us return to our featured news article:
"An Associated Press survey of longtime students of international terrorism finds them ever more convinced, in the aftermath of London’s bloody Thursday, that the world has entered a long siege in a new kind of war. They believe that al-Qaida is mutating into a global insurgency, a possible prototype for other 21st-century movements, technologically astute, almost leaderless ... In fact, says Michael Scheuer, the ex-CIA analyst, rather than move toward solutions, the United States took a big step backward by invading Iraq ... Now, he said, 'we’re at the point where jihad is self-sustaining', where Islamic 'holy warriors' in Iraq fight America with or without allegiance to al-Qaida’s bin Laden.
"Bruce Hoffman, the veteran RAND Corp. specialist who fears an 'endless war', dismisses talk of al-Qaida’s 'back' having been 'broken' by the capture of some leaders ... Stephen Sloan, another veteran scholar in the field, prescribes stoicism. The American, British and other target publics must give their intelligence and police agencies time to close ranks globally and crush the challenge, said Sloan, of the University of Central Florida. 'The public has to have the resolve to face the reality there will be other incidents', he said."
Of course, when all these so-called "experts" speak to this issue, they accept as blind "fact" that Islamic terrorism is really responsible for the scourge of global terror gripping us right now. Not one of them breathes one word of possibility that the entire structure might be a "government provocateur" operation, when agents working for the government attack an institution of that government, blaming an outside enemy.
If Muslim terrorists actually planted those bombs, they were being controlled by agents of the Illuminati; and, it is entirely possible that non-Muslims actually planted those bombs. An interesting parallel to the 9/11 attacks was brought to light, and strenghtens the probability that these attacks were carried out by agents of the Illuminati.
NEWS BRIEF: "London Underground Bombing 'Exercises' Took Place at Same Time as Real Attack: Culpability cover scenario echoes 9/11 wargames", Prison Planet, July 13, 2005
"A consultancy agency with government and police connections was running an exercise for an unnamed company that revolved around the London Underground being bombed at the exact same times and locations as happened in real life on the morning of July 7th. On a BBC Radio 5 interview that aired on the evening of the 7th, the host interviewed Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants ... Peter Power was a former Scotland Yard official, working at one time with the Anti Terrorist Branch."
"Power told the host that at the exact same time that the London bombings were taking place, his company was running a 1,000 person strong exercise which drilled the London Underground being bombed at the exact same locations, at the exact same times, as happened in real life."
What is this all about? Since the area of the bombings has thousands of CCTV cameras recording nearly everything going on in "real time", it is highly probable that British agents in that area would be picked up on camera. How, then, does one explain pictures of an agent dropping a bag in precisely the same area where an explosion later occurred?
The answer is simple: very matter-of-factly announce that "anti-terror" exercises were occurring at the same location, following the same scenario as what the "terrorists" were actually carrying out. Thus, if someone notices a British agent dropping a suspicious bag at a location where a bomb exploded shortly thereafter, the cover story is in place and deflects suspicion -- at least for a vast majority of a population whose mindset simply will not allow for a "government provocateur" operation, for no one wants to think their government is capable of launching a deadly attack on its own citizens (Read NEWS1595, "Operation Northwoods: Proof Positive That American Government Leaders Are Quite Willing To Create A Plan Which Will Kill Fellow Americans")
Of course, this parallels a similar "anti-terror exercise" the CIA admitted it was conducting at the same time the 9/11 attacks were underway!
"This is precisely what happened on the morning of 9/11/2001. The CIA was conducting drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon at 8:30 in the morning. It is clear that at least five if not six training exercises were in operation in the days leading up to and on the morning of 9/11. This meant that NORAD radar screens showed as many as 22 hijacked airliners at the same time. NORAD had been briefed that this was part of the exercise drill and therefore normal reactive procedure was forestalled and delayed. The large numbers of 'blips' on NORAD screens that displayed both real and 'drill' hijacked planes explain why confused press reports emerged hours after the attack stating that up to eight planes had been hijacked." (Ibid.)
We encourage you to read this featured news story, above, for it provides excellent detail as to how America's CIA, Russia's KGB, and Britain's MI6 intelligence services have been caught "red-handed" in the past in carrying out "government provocateur" operations that were blamed on other factions. This type of operation is known as a "wet operation", which means people are going to bleed and die. This featured news story captures the essence of these massive "government provocateur" operations -- "... From Putin blowing up his own apartment buildings to Israel being behind Hamas, the evidence is consistently clear that large scale terrorism is always state sponsored." (Ibid.)
And, as planned, "terrorism" has spread to cover the entire earth:
Remember what New Age author, Bill Cooper, said, speaking of the global plan to bring humanity together in an oppressive global government:
"... the secret societies were planning as far back as 1917 to invent an artificial threat ... in order to bring humanity together in a one-world government which they call the New World Order". ["Behold A Pale Horse", p. 27]
The New World Order Plan envisions that people will accept the transition to a global, dictatorial government only if they are scared into it! Only if people really believe that their survival is at stake will they accept such a government as the Kingdom of Antichrist, also known as the New World Order!
Listen to another segment of their plan:
"When we come into our kingdom [New World Order] our orators will expound great problems which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring it at the end under our beneficent rule. Who will ever suspect, then, that all these peoples were stage-managed by us according to a political plan which no one has so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries?" [Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, Protocol #13; Emphasis added]
VI. In NEWS2054, "Occult Signature To London Bombing Attacks", we noted that the grand theme of the latest G-8 Summit was Africa -- reducing their debt load, reducing HIV incidence and rebuilding poor countries. A secret society known as "International 777 Order of Twelve 333 of Knights and Daughters of Tabor" comprised of African-Americans has been operating for since 1898, and has the same symbolic number -- 777 -- by which the London bombings occurred.
Now, it appears that this "global concern" over the welfare of the African continent is the driving force behind a hidden agenda to force both global government and global taxation on all the peoples of the rest of the world.
NEWS BRIEF: "Africa's poverty driving global taxation", WorldNetDaily, July 12, 2005
"The focus for the last seven years, since the last G8 in England, has been aid for Africa. In 1998, the churches organized the Jubilee Debt Relief Campaign. The terminology used was to remind world leaders of the biblical Year of Jubilee recorded in the Old Testament where the debts of debtors were forgiven. Then in 2000, the United Nations held the Millennium Summit in which they set forth their goals for the third millennium. These goals would cost the world $50 billion a year, which would escalate to $126 billion by 2015, when the United Nations is supposed to have reduced poverty, hunger and HIV-AIDS by 50 percent, and provided basic education and clean drinking water to the whole world. Seven years later, both debt forgiveness and the concept of global taxation have come full circle. This is it. This is where the rubber meets the road."
Global taxation has always been a coveted goal of the Illuminati. No government can effectively control the people unless they have the coercive power to tax -- and to enforce lack of tax payment with police, military, or para-military forces. Obviously, the toothless United Nations could not be counted upon to coerce any nation to do anything. For this reason, Conservatives have adopted the position that a strong United States government could always be counted upon to resist any U.N. attempt to levy a tax upon Americans, and then actually try to collect that tax.
Part of the "solution" in the minds of globalist leaders is to silently increase the scope of the reach of the United Nations in so many different areas of the world, acting daily in so many avenues to alleviate suffering, feed the poor, increase the effectiveness of local farming methods, and reach out to the poor and needy in the cities of the world. You can get a sense of how this strategy works by visiting the United Nations news website. You will be surprised to see the immense number of ways in which the tentacles of the UN are currently stretching around the world, working through private corporations and non-government organizations to do a lot of good in a very needy world, generating a lot of goodwill.
Another part of the solution is to replace Kofi Annan with a really professional leader who simply exudes charisma and professional confidence. In the entire time former President Bill Clinton has been out of office, rumors have been swirling that he will replace Annan. Certainly, Annan has been under fire during the past several years, most notably from the UN's Iraqi "Oil-For-Food" program, which allowed Saddam Hussein to buy food with oil. This program is now understood to have generated huge fraud, with Annan's son reputedly in the middle of the scandal.
If Annan is removed from office before his term expires, or if he resigns, Bill Clinton may become the eighth Secretary General of the United Nations -- at the very time the world is spinning toward a rendezvous with the most charismatic leader in world history, Antichrist. Clinton certainly would add great clout and credibility to the United Nations, making it more likely that more people would accept leadership from the world body.
It seems incredible that the United Nations and the G-8 would use the issue of African debt-relief to drive the world into the arms of the global tax collector! Poor Africa -- it has been the sinkhole of international aid since World War II. Since AIDS has been loosed on the continent, Africa has been reeling. However, there is one very big reason Africa has remained the world's beggar, despite untold billions of dollars poured into its national coffers. This part of the story is best exemplified by a recent article on the corruption in Nigeria.
NEWS BRIEF: "£220bn stolen by Nigeria's corrupt rulers", By David Blair in Abuja, news.telegraph.uk, 25 June 2005
"The scale of the task facing Tony Blair in his drive to help Africa was laid bare yesterday when it emerged that Nigeria's past rulers stole or misused £220 billion. That is as much as all the western aid given to Africa in almost four decades. The looting of Africa's most populous country amounted to a sum equivalent to 300 years of British aid for the continent ... Gordon Brown, the Chancellor, has spoken of a new Marshall Plan for Africa. But Nigeria's rulers have already pocketed the equivalent of six Marshall Plans. After that mass theft, two thirds of the country's 130 million people - one in seven of the total African population - live in abject poverty, a third is illiterate and 40 per cent have no safe water supply."
Nigerian government officials have literally stolen every single British pound they were given over the past four decades! Only a few officials became filthy rich, while the poor people continued to writhe in daily agony. Yet, African leaders continue to put their hand out, begging the rich industrialized nations of the world to bail them out one more growing season, one more year, with one more program.
And, the industrialized nations continue to shovel the money into the coffers of these greedy rulers, knowing that very little will actually filter down to the little guy. But, you see, even the rulers of G-8 do not care for the little guy on the street. They have an agenda which is both huge and hidden. As this book, above, "Confessions of An Economic Hit Man" reveals, loans from an industrial source carries a very steep price tag. This WorldNetDaily article speaks to this reality, so let us go back for just a moment.
"So why has Africa been perpetually poor? There are a number of reasons, but we can go back to World Bank loans that were forced on a number of African countries during the 1970s. Under World Bank President Robert McNamara, who served as president from 1969 to 1981, World Bank economists pushed their way into African countries in order to come up with a financial plan for their development. Their plan was so secret that not even the leaders of those countries were privy to what the plan called for. They were pressured into taking huge World Bank loans to carry out grandiose projects that were supposed to bring the country enough income to repay the loans. Unfortunately most of these projects became 'White Elephant' projects, leaving these countries with huge indebtness. These are the Highly Indebted Poor Countries which you and I are being asked to bail out with increased foreign aid, debt forgiveness, and/or international taxation." (Ibid.)
This revelation is given a great 'flesh of detail' in "Confessions of An Economic Hit Man". This plan of action represents textbook control, gained through forcing a person or a nation into accepting great loans, at high interest rates. How large are the loans Africa owes?
"According to John Hilary from War on Want, about $532 billion is owed by the 60 Highly Indebted Poor Countries. Currently, only 18 countries have qualified for debt forgiveness as a result of meeting World Bank conditions. The amount of debt forgiveness is $40 billion, but the debt servicing of the remaining $492 billion owed is $45 billion a year. Hence the reason for global tax." (Ibid.)
As you can see, the amount of debt relief is only 7.5% of the total indebtedness, and is probably being offered to countries not expected to make their payments this year. Further, the World Bank is charging nearly 10% interest for these loans, at a time when American home buyers are getting loans for about than 6%. Surely, huge loans in the billions lent by huge Western lending institutions could charge a lower rate. But, that would make the re-payments more palatable and less grievous. The more agony high interest rates inflict upon the debtor nation, the more likely the West can intervene, with demands which the debtor nation must accept -- or face the possibility of a military invasion or a covert intelligence attack.
Listen to some of the facts of this World Net Daily article:
"The World Bank requires countries to take specific steps in order to qualify for debt forgiveness which include;
* "changing their structure of government to be "more accountable";
* "privatize their energy sector, water, electricity"
* "set up regional government structures'
* "At every turn, it is public-private partnership, the selling off of government-owned resources, or privatizing through partnering with business ... The purpose of these programs is to set up public-private partnerships where governments end up transferring assets into a new partnership to be run by the corporations ... The Compact will support their efforts in achieving its overall national development goal of transforming its economy from aid-dependence to sustainable, private sector-led growth." (Ibid.)
Western Corporations are running much of Africa these days, and are attempting mightily to turn the countries into "sustainable" and cashless economies so desired by the globalist Illuminati (NEWS1833).
What was the bottom line of this WorldNetDaily article?
"Without Africa, global taxation would not be possible." (Ibid.)
Welcome to the New World Order.
Post-note To NEWS2054: In this article, we noted that the theme of the current G-8 Summit was Africa. This summit was going strong on July 7 when the terror attacks occurred in London. We noted that the date of the terror attacks constituted an "occult numeric signature" for it formed a "777". Then, we noted that a very influential, but little-known African-American secret society existed known as the ""International 777 Order of Twelve 333 of Knights and Daughters of Tabor".
We asked the question as to whether the G-8 theme of Africa during the summit -- which was continuing on 7-7-2005 (2+5=7) -- had anything to do with the influence of this black secret society, in whose very name "777" occurs. This WorldNetDaily article gave us one more clue. Let us return to it now.
"The focus for the last seven years, since the last G8 in England, has been aid for Africa."
Thus, the G8 has been concentrating on Africa, moving non-integrating states to cashless societies global taxation since 1998. Is that the reason Kofi Annan -- who is from Africa -- began serving his first term as UN Secretary General on January 1, 1997? At the very time G-8 is concentrating on Africa, a black African has been Secretary General of the UN!
Amazing how things work, don't you think?
VII. A junior producer from Fox News called me yesterday (July 14, 2005), asking if I would participate in a debate on Harry Potter. Fox wanted Cutting Edge Ministries to represent the viewpoint of Fundamental Christians on the subject of Harry Potter. The format called for me to debate someone who held the view point that the Harry Potter novels and movies were just harmless fun and that kids should be encouraged to read them because that way, they are at least reading something!
This junior producer told me that he had read several of our articles on the Potter phenomenon and knew where we stood on the issue. I would be facing a person who emphatically held the opposite view; further, knowing the unchristian bias of Fox News, this unknown person with whom I would be debating probably would sneer at the very idea that Christianity had anything worthwhile to say on the subject and would consider the Holy Bible to be an outdated anachronism.
At this point, this producer let his guard down just a little bit. He asked if I took the position that the Harry Potter books should be censored. I replied that corporate and/or government censorship would do no good at this point. My exact words were, "At this point in time, six years after the first Harry Potter book hit the market, the cows are out of the barn on this issue".
The producer then asked, "Since you are so opposed to Potter, would you be in favor of book-burning"?
I started to answer him, but the words froze in my mouth, for I suddenly had a premonition. I stopped my answer in mid-sentence and asked:
"Are you looking for a Christian ministry whose representative will come on camera to say that he supports book-burning"?
After "hemming and hawing" for a few seconds, he stated, "well, yes, kind of"."
I replied, "well, you are not going to get that kind of a response from this ministry." Very quickly thereafter, the phone call was over.
This is slanted, "yellow journalism"! Fox News had created the scenario they wanted, i.e., to discredit true Fundamental Christianity. Likely, this junior producer kept calling ministries until he found someone, somewhere, who would be so eager to get on nationwide television that he would take the "book-burning" position which Fox so ardently wanted to present.
Before the phone call ended, I spoke to the need for an inner, individual censorship, one based upon adherence to Biblical principles. I reminded this producer that the type of wizardry and witchcraft so skillfully depicted in all Harry Potter novels is precisely the kind so strictly forbidden in the Bible. Therefore, the very fact that Potter is so very successful tells the discerning, that people by the tens of millions today share the same values of witchcraft which permeate the Hogwarts storyline.
In other words, the Potter popularity shouts that America is far removed from Jesus Christ and is very much in love with Satan's values.
This next story speaks to this issue very well. Witchcraft has now become so popular, with so many people familiar with its practices, that a good many people actually believe that people's spirits can return from the dead and the evil haunting of houses.
NEWS BRIEF: "Great Caesar's Ghost! Gallup finds 1 in 3 Americans Believe Houses Can Be Haunted", Editor and Publisher, July 12, 2005
"NEW YORK Gallup reports today that its latest poll found that one in three Americans 'believe in ghosts'. The numbers: '32% of all adults say they believe that 'ghosts/spirits of dead people can come back', while 48% do not, and 19% are unsure. An even larger number of Americans believe that houses can be haunted, with 37% holding that position, 46% saying no, and 16% not sure ... Belief in ghosts declines with age."
Of course, parts of this viewpoint are unbiblical. No person who dies can ever come back, because the Bible states, "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it." (Eccl 12:7)
The very instant a person dies, their soul separates from the body, and returns to Creator God. No spirit can ever come back from the dead. However, demons do regularly masquerade as human spirits in order to deceive gullible, Scripturally-ignorant people. Persons who get their understanding of dead, the dying, and of the spirit world through Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and other occult-based movies, books, and TV shows are likely to hold this unscriptural view.
Notice, also, that this belief "declines with age". Older people are more likely to have at least a rudimentary understanding of the Scriptures and of the capabilities and limitations of inhabitants of the demonic realm. Younger people are more familiar with "The National Enquirer" and the TV show, "Bewitched" than the Bible, so they are most likely to hold to these unscriptural views.

---------Conclusion----------------""Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory." Psalm 73:24
The Psalmist felt his need of divine guidance. He had just been discovering the foolishness of his own heart, and lest he should be constantly led astray by it, he resolved that God's counsel should henceforth guide him. A sense of our own folly is a great step towards being wise, when it leads us to rely on the wisdom of the Lord. The blind man leans on his friend's arm and reaches home in safety, and so would we give ourselves up implicitly to divine guidance, nothing doubting; assured that though we cannot see, it is always safe to trust the All-seeing God. "Thou shalt," is a blessed expression of confidence. He was sure that the Lord would not decline the condescending task.
There is a word for thee, O believer; rest thou in it. Be assured that thy God will be thy counsellor and friend; He shall guide thee; He will direct all thy ways. In His written Word thou hast this assurance in part fulfilled, for holy Scripture is His counsel to thee. Happy are we to have God's Word always to guide us! What were the mariner without his compass? And what were the Christian without the Bible? This is the unerring chart, the map in which every shoal is described, and all the channels from the quicksands of destruction to the haven of salvation mapped and marked by one who knows all the way. Blessed be Thou, O God, that we may trust Thee to guide us now, and guide us even to the end! After this guidance through life, the Psalmist anticipates a divine reception at last--"and afterward receive me to glory." What a thought for thee, believer! God Himself will receive thee to glory--thee! Wandering, erring, straying, yet He will bring thee safe at last to glory! This is thy portion; live on it this day, and if perplexities should surround thee, go in the strength of this text straight to the throne.
