---------- Inspiration For the Week-------"The Sower of the Seed'

"A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and ate them up. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil; and at once they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched, and because they had no root, they dried up and withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them out. Other seeds fell on good soil, and yielded grain--some a hundred times as much as was sown, some sixty times as much, and some thirty." (Matthew 13:3b-8; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)

"Listen then to the [meaning of the] parable of the sower: While anyone is hearing the Word of the kingdom and does not grasp and comprehend it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the roadside. As for what was sown on thin (rocky) soil, this is he who hears the Word and at once welcomes and accepts it with joy; Yet it has no real root in him, but is temporary (inconstant, lasts but a little while); and when affliction or trouble or persecution comes on account of the Word, at once he is caused to stumble [he is repelled and begins to distrust and desert Him Whom he ought to trust and obey] and he falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the Word, but the cares of the world and the pleasure and delight and glamour and deceitfulness of riches choke and suffocate the Word, and it yields no fruit. As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the Word and grasps and comprehends it; he indeed bears fruit and yields in one case a hundred times as much as was sown, in another sixty times as much, and in another thirty." (Matthew 13:18-23; Ibid.)

From the beginning, I conceived Cutting Edge as a modern-day "Sower of the Seed". At least, that was the parable the Holy Spirit laid on my heart. We wanted our knowledge of the occult Plan to produce Antichrist, plus our thorough knowledge of Biblical prophecy, to spiritually challenge both unbelievers and backslidden Christians to make a decision to receive Jesus as Saviour. Consistent with this vision, we have a standard spiritual challenge and a hotlink to our Salvation Page.

For the past several years, we have been seeing 10-11 people per hour downloading a Salvation Page to discover how to be saved, a figure which translates to 100,000 people per year. During this past September, this figure jumped dramatically, just as we thought it would when the news turned consistently End of the Age. In all the languages in which Cutting Edge is translated -- English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Finnish -- we recorded 17 people per hour downloading a Salvation Page; this rate translates to a yearly figure of nearly 150,000 people!

Praise God! He and He only is to be glorified. Please pray a Hedge of Protection (Psalm 91) around this ministry. Currently, almost 750 million people worldwide speak these languages. Our hope and prayer is that, if the Holy Spirit protects and sustains this ministry, allowing us to stay on the Internet during the coming 91-day World War III, millions of people might be saved through our ministry.

Please pray. Daily.

* "Cutting Edge Seminars 1, 2 and 4 on MP3 CDROM"

Tremendous Value! Save $15.00 - This combination offer has three (3) Cutting Edge seminars on one MP3 CDROM, our most popular seminars ever.

Seminar 1, "America's Leadership of the New World Order", shows why this formerly Christian country could become the leader of the Satanic New World Order effort. America today is compared to the Israel in the years prior to God bringing in Nebuchadnezzar to physically destroy Israel in Judgment. Comparisons between Israel then and America today are staggering!

Seminar 2, "America Determines The Flow of History", looks carefully at our national history and discovers that our Founding Fathers had a hidden agenda which set this country on the path of leadership of the Kingdom of Antichrist. Also covered is the demonic Plan for three (3) World Wars, the fact that the Illuminati created Communism between 1846-1848, and the greatest deliberately staged "Dialectic Struggle" of all time -- the Cold War

Seminar 4, "Raging Spiritual Warfare in These Last Days" demonstrates specific instances where Spiritual Warfare was the power behind major world events.

These three seminars run for almost 18 hours! Truly, you will never look at the news the same way again. -- http://www.cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=1126

* "Paths To Power" - by A.W. Tozer

In the early Church, they met together on Solomon's Porch, and so great was the sense of God's presence that 'no man durst join himself to them'. The world saw spiritual fire in that bush and stood back in fear, but no one is afraid of ashes.

If we ever again impress unsaved men with a wholesome fear of the supernatural, we must have once more the dignity of the Holy Spirit. We must know again that awe-inspiring mystery which comes upon men and churches when they are FULL of the Power of the Holy Spirit.

"Paths To Power" is a journey toward receiving the power God has always intended for His people. The path leads to the Biblical directions for obtaining that Power through the Holy Spirit.

"Ye WILL receive power". God's promise and provision!


* "Overcoming PANIC Attacks" -- by Pastor Ray Comfort

Have you had a panic attack this week - or perhaps even today? If you have, then you're among the many thousands of Christians who suffer from the devastating effects of panic attacks and irrational fears. Evangelist and author Ray Comfort was one of them, and he found the scriptural way out of his attacks and fears, and wrote this book to help you find the way out of yours.

At this point in world history, as the world spins inexorably toward the Final Birth Pangs which will produce Antichrist, discerning Christians realize they will likely be facing some very stern tests -- including a possible martyrdom.

Pastor Ray Comfort teaches us how to Biblically confront these panics, giving God the glory for our victory.

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


Instructions for these Illuminati Card Games are very revealing:

Epidemic/Quarantine: "Disaster! This is an attack to Destroy any Place. It does not require an action. Its Power is 14. This is not an instant attack; other groups can interfere normally. If the attack succeeds, the target is Devastated. This attack cannot actually destroy the target."

Of course an epidemic does not destroy a hard physical target; rather, it destroys people, leaving the physical location intact. During this past week, President Bush seemed to be acting out his role in fulfilling the plan of this Illuminati Card!

Centers For Disease Control: "As its action, the CDC can supply Relief to one Devastated location each turn. If the CDC makes a direct attack to destroy a Place, it can use biological warfare and get a (+15 !!) to its attack. If the attack fails, the CDC is automatically destroyed by the owner of the Place under attack."

Notice that this card game assumes the CDC is going to launch a biological attack! And that the target of the CDC is going to be "Devastated".

When Avian Bird Flu is announced in this country, you can safely assume the CDC had something directly to do with the attack.

I. President Bush stated this week that he would consider imposing a quarantine to protect against an outbreak of Avian Bird Flu, a quarantine backed by military might. As news stories continued to spread about this bird flu, vaccinations were continually touted as the answer; once you know the scientific truth, you will realize vaccination stories are simply dangerous conditioning.

NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Suggests Using Military In Bird Flu Quarantine", WRAL TV, Channel 5, October 4, 2005

"WASHINGTON -- President George W. Bush, increasingly concerned about a possible avian flu pandemic, revealed Tuesday that any part of the country where the virus breaks out could likely be quarantined and that he is considering using the military to enforce it. 'The best way to deal with a pandemic is to isolate it and keep it isolated in the region in which it begins', he said during a wide-ranging Rose Garden news conference'."

Skull & Bones President George W. Bush has just enunciated another reason the Federal Government might impose a military Martial Law upon this country -- in addition to the three instances already in play. This constant talk about Martial Law, coupled with the President's trip to NORTHCOM following his trip to Texas the day before Hurricane Rita hit, is constantly keeping the specter of Martial Law in front of our eyes.

Indeed, dividing America into military patrol zones, each one being governed by Martial Law, is a most serious part of the Plan whereby this Constitution is dissolved, thus denying citizens their rights and their liberties. We have posted a major article on this subject (NEWS2079), in which we examine the probability that Martial Law may be rolled out in stages across the country, rather than all at once. This possibility will be news to the ears of Conservatives throughout this country. Please take a moment to read our expose'.

Now, let us turn to the subject of vaccinations for this Avian Bird Flu. Almost daily we are seeing news reports urging vaccinations on the people, or reporting that governments do not have enough doses on hand, or talking about vaccinations in general. This is a very serious problem, because the real danger will likely not come from the bird flu itself, but from the vaccinations themselves -- at least that is what happened in the Spanish Fu Epidemic of 1918.

Let us review the current news stories.

NEWS BRIEF: "Security fears as flu virus that killed 50 million is recreated", The Guardian, October 6, 2005

"Scientists have recreated the 1918 Spanish flu virus, one of the deadliest ever to emerge, to the alarm of many researchers who fear it presents a serious security risk. Undisclosed quantities of the virus are being held in a high-security government laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia, after a nine-year effort to rebuild the agent that swept the globe in record time and claimed the lives of an estimated 50 million people. The genetic sequence is also being made available to scientists online, a move which some fear adds a further risk of the virus being created in other labs."

Long-term Cutting Edge subscribers will remember that we reported this genetic effort almost exactly two years ago, in 2003.

NEWS BRIEF: "Lethal Virus from 1918 Genetically Reconstructed: US Army scientists create 'Spanish Flu' virus in laboratory - medical benefit questionable", The Sunshine Project, 9 October 2003

""(Austin and Hamburg, 9 October 2003) – The 'Spanish Flu' influenza virus that killed 20-40 million people in 1918 is currently under reconstruction. Several genes of the extraordinarily lethal 1918 flu virus have been isolated and introduced into contemporary flu strains. These proved to be lethal for mice, while virus constructs with genes from a current flu virus types had hardly any effect. These experiments may easily be abused for military purposes, but provide little benefit from a medical or public health point of view. The 1918 Spanish Flu was highly infectious and – in comparison to contemporary flu viruses – killed a very high percentage of those infected, including many younger people. The Spanish Flu alone caused the medium life expectancy in the US in 1918 to drop by 10 years. Hence, flu viruses are perceived today as a serious biological warfare threat."

It is a fact: there can be no "medical benefit" to genetically resurrecting the 1918 Spanish Flu virus. However, if you are planning to resurrect the deadly Black Plague, this action to reconstruct the 1918 Spanish Flu virus makes a lot of sense. Now, let us continue this news story, to see that these Army scientists literally did make this flu virus jump back to life.

"Despite the very dangerous nature of the 1918 virus, efforts to reconstruct it started in the mid 1990s, when Dr Jeffrey Taubenberger from the US Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, DC, succeeded in recovering and sequencing fragments of the viral RNA from preserved tissues of 1918 victims ... But after (partially) unraveling the genetic sequence of the virus, the scientists went a step further and began bringing the Spanish flu back to life. Unnoticed by the public, they succeeded in creating a live virus containing two 1918 genes that proved to be very lethal in animal experiments. This experiment is only one genetic step away from taking the 1918 demon entirely out of the bottle." (Ibid.)

Did you catch the significance of what American Army scientists may be about ready to do? "taking the 1918 demon entirely out of the bottle" .

The Army lamely stated that they brought this terrible virus back to life so they could develop anti-terrorist measures against it. However, this defense is blown apart by the very next paragraph of this article.

"A resuscitation of the Spanish flu is neither necessary nor warranted from a public health point of view ... bthere is little need for antiviral drugs against the 1918 strain if the 1918 strain had not been recreated in the first place. 'It simply does not make any scientific sense to create a new threat just to develop new countermeasures against it'. says Jan van Aken, biologist with the Sunshine Project, 'Genetic characterization of influenza strains has important biomedical applications. But it is not justifiable to recreate this particularly dangerous eradicated strain that could wreak havoc if released, deliberately or accidentally'." (Ibid.; Emphasis added)

Exactly! Now that people are being driven to extreme propaganda measures to want to take a medically worthless flu vaccine, is the stage being set for a resurrected 1918 Spanish Flu virus to be slipped into a future batch of flu vaccination doses? Given the apparent closeness of the appearance of Antichrist, we must be on guard against our government convincing us to take a flu vaccination which is worthless in a Best Case Scenario and deadly in the Worst Case.

You see, once people are convinced they MUST have that flu shot, and are driven to great lengths of distress because there are not enough doses to vaccinate everyone who supposedly needs one, it then becomes easy to introduce a super-strain of flu which will kill and kill and kill, having the "same effect as the Black Death of history." People will be clamoring for the very shot which will kill them.

I stand amazed at the ignorance of so many Americans, particularly those who graduated high school through 1969, probably the last year in which quality education was provided in the Public School System. You see, science has never been able to beat a virus, simply because all viruses are mutating constantly. As soon as a medicine is created which will kill or neutralize a virus, it becomes worthless once it is injected, because the virus will have mutated enough so that the medicine will be ineffective! Science has waged great war with excellent success against all manner of bacteriological infection, because bacteria does not change.

Therefore, all citizens who graduated prior to 1969 should know that viruses mutate so constantly that the vaccine doctors are injecting will not be effective in the least little bit. My daughter is a Registered Nurse, and was shocked when she first started working in a hospital in 1998, for the nurses with whom she worked had a name for the standard flu vaccination: "Old People Killer"!

These nurses understood that the flu shot is worthless at best, and deadly at its worst.

Now, let us examine another article written several years ago, which reveals that the Spanish Flu of 1918 was CAUSED by vaccinations!

NEWS BRIEF: "Vaccine -- not virus -- responsible for Spanish flu", Irish Examiner Archives, 8 May 2003

"How did they know it was the virus of Spanish flu that killed millions of civilians and soldiers? This disaster occurred when viruses were unknown to medical science. It took a British science team to identify the first virus in man in 1933 ... But US Army records show that seven men dropped dead after being vaccinated. A report from US Secretary of War Henry L Stimson not only verified these deaths but also stated that there had been 63 deaths and 28,585 cases of hepatitis as a direct result of yellow fever vaccinations during only six months of the war ... Army records also reveal that after vaccination became compulsory in the US Army in 1911, not only did typhoid increase rapidly but all other vaccinal diseases increased at an alarming rate. After America entered the war in 1917, the death rate from typhoid vaccination rose to the highest point in the history of the US Army. The deaths occurred after the shots were given in sanitary American hospitals and well-supervised army camps in France, where sanitation had been practised for years."

"The army doctors knew all these cases of disease and death were due to vaccination and were honest enough to admit it in their medical reports. When army doctors tried to suppress the symptoms of typhoid with a stronger vaccine, it caused a worse form of typhoid, paratyphoid. But when they concocted an even stronger vaccine to suppress that one, they created an even worse disease - Spanish flu. After the war, this was one of the vaccines used to protect a panic-stricken world from the soldiers returning from WWI battlefronts infected with dangerous diseases."

"The rest is history." Yes, history records that over 50 million people died worldwide -- from a disease they caught from a "protective" vaccination!

Now you know that the Spanish Flu of 1918 was deliberately created and then spread through vaccinations! But, the "panic-stricken" public demanded a vaccination, not realizing that was the way in which the diesase was spreading. Of course, many were also killed when the virus spread from person-to-person as viruses normally do.

Will we soon hear that Avian Bird Flu has started in this country in Georgia, within convenient distance of Atlanta, where the CDC has genetically reconstructed the deadly 1918 Spanish Flu virus? People will line up to get this worthless Avian Bird Flu, not realizing the vaccine is full of the 1918 Spanish Flu -- reconstructed.

Consider how this pandemic news fulfills both the Illuminati Plan and Bible prophecy.

The Illuminati Plan:

""The only alternative left to the world's ruling elite was to increase the death rate ... they did not relish the possible consequences of an enraged public upon discovering that they were being systematically murdered ... Dr. Aurelio Peccei of the Club of Rome ... advocated that a plague be introduced that would have the same effect as the Black Death of history." [Bill Cooper, "Behold A Pale Horse"., p. 167]

The Biblical Prophecy:

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

"So I looked, and behold, an ashy pale horse, black and blue as if made so by bruising, and its rider's name was Death, and Hades (the realm of the dead) followed him closely. And they were given authority and power over a fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword and with famine and with plague (pestilence, disease) ..." [Revelation 6:8, Fourth Seal; Ibid.]


II. Iran took another very large step towards war this week. Remember, just weeks ago Iran was reported to have reorganized in the manner military analysts expect a nation to reorganize when that nation's leaders are planning war. Now, her newly elected hardline leaders have changed control of the nuclear power plants from civilian to military control -- another possible war sign.

NEWS BRIEF: "Army takes control of Iran nukes", By David R. Sands, THE WASHINGTON TIMES, October 5, 2005

"Iran's new president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has placed the military firmly in control of his nation's nuclear program, undercutting his government's claim that the program is intended for civilian use ... Leaders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the force created specifically to defend the 1979 Islamic revolution, now dominate Iran's Supreme National Security Council ... Mr. Ahmadinejad, a little-known former mayor of Tehran before his surprise election in July, is a former IRGC commander, as is new council Secretary-General Ali Larijani, who has taken the lead in negotiations about Iran's nuclear programs. Revolutionary Guard commanders also have taken charge of the council's internal security, strategy and political posts..."

"... other analysts also have reported a wave of senior appointments for Iran's military, especially from within the more ideological forces under the direct control of the ruling Islamic clerics. Houchang Hassan-Yari, a political scientist at the Royal Military College of Canada, noted in a recent analysis that current and former members of the IRGC now can be found throughout Iran's political and administrative bureaucracy, from lawmakers in parliament to mayors, university officials and even managers of some of Iran's biggest business concerns.

Cutting Edge had already reported that Iran had undertaken all the military changes needed to go to war! Listen:

NEWS BRIEF: "Is Iran preparing for a US war?", By Amir Taheri, Special to Gulf News, Gulf News, Published: 21/9/2005

"Incredible though it may sound, there are signs that Tehran may be preparing for a military confrontation with the United States and has convinced itself that it could win."

This article then lists the concrete steps toward a war with the US which the Iranian leadership is taking.

1. Election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as president of the Islamic republic -- this hardline president-elect then promptly named a very hardline cabinet

2. Carried out a little publicized purge of the military, the security, the civil service, state-owned corporations and media. The most significant purges have affected the military high command.

3. Among those replaced are the defence minister, the commander-in-chief of the regular army and his four deputies, 11 senior commanders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and five commanders of the paramilitary.

4. New president also replaced the minister of intelligence and security and the minister of the interior, who controls the police and the gendarmerie

5. Another sign that Tehran may be preparing for war is the appointment of military officers to posts normally held by civilians, such as governors, mayors and directors of major public corporations.

6. But, perhaps, the surest sign yet of war is the military build-up under way in the five provinces bordering Iraq. The region, with a population of 20 million, has been put under the control of the IRGC. Iran is estimated to have 250,000 troops in the area, its biggest military build-up since the end of the Iran-Iraq war in 1988.

7. The new, hardliner Cabinet then approved an "emergency" fund of $700 million (Dh2.57 billion) to be disbursed at the discretion of "the supreme guide" for "sacred defence purposes".

8. The new administration has also decided to speed up defence disbursements

9. In the past few weeks top regime figures, including Khamenei and Ahmadinejad, have made a series of unscheduled visits to Mash'had, Iran's second largest city. One curious fact revealed during these visits is that a bunker-like structure to house the 'supreme guide' is being completed close to the holy shrine of Reza, the Eighth Imam.

10. Iran is completing a massive new military base at Fadak, a suburb of the holy city of Qom, south of Tehran

Keep watch on Iran, for she may be a key player in the Final Birth Pangs War designed to produce Antichrist -- the Illuminati calls this war "World War III".

III. The Nobel Peace Prize Committee may have just made it very difficult for President Bush, Prime Minister Blair, or Prime Minister Sharon to attack Iran for her supposed nuclear weapons program by awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Mohamed ElBaradei, the head of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency). After all, just a few weeks ago, ElBaradei stated that the evidence was not conclusive that Iran was pursuing a nuclear weapons program!

NEWS BRIEF: "ElBaradei: Peace Prize a "shot in the arm", The Boston Globe, October 7, 2005

"VIENNA (Reuters) - U.N. nuclear watchdog head Mohamed ElBaradei said on Friday winning the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize would give him and his agency a much-needed "shot in the arm" as they tackle nuclear crises in Iran and North Korea ... The 63-year-old Egyptian lawyer and the International Atomic Energy Agency won the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to prevent both the spread of nuclear weapons, to new states and to terrorists, and to ensure safe civilian use of nuclear energy.

" 'The award sends a very strong message: 'Keep doing what you are doing -- be impartial, act with integrity', and that is what we intend to do," ElBaradei told a news conference in Vienna. 'The advantage of having this recognition today, it will strengthen my resolve'."

It has to be shocking to many observers that the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize would go to ElBaradei, head of the IAEA, for none of his activities have resulted in any concrete breakthrough in nuclear disarmament. He has been most notably active in investigating whether the following countries had developed, or were developing, Weapons of Mass Destruction, with an emphasis on nuclear arms: Iraq, North Korea, and Iran.

* Iraq -- In the two years prior to President Bush's invasion, ElBaradei stated time and time again that there was no conclusive evidence that Iraq ever had WMD. During the time the Bush Administration's own WMD search teams were feverishly trying to find WMD, ElBaradei kept up the drumbeat, saying he doubted that any would ever be found.

So angry was President Bush concerning ElBaradei and his constant public press releases that he attempted to prevent him from being reappointed to the IAEA (Newsletter for April 20, 2005, Paragraph I).

* Iran -- In our Newsletter for August 13, 2005, Paragraph IV, we noted that ElBaradei stated that the "jury is still out" over whether there are 'undeclared nuclear materials or activities in Iran'."

* North Korea -- The IAEA has been far less active in this dispute.

Now that the Nobel Peace Prize Committee has awarded ElBaradei its top Peace Prize for his work in Iraq and Iran, President Bush will find it that much more difficult to attack Iran for its supposed nuclear weapons program. Remember, Cutting Edge has always noted that this 2 1/2 year program of criticism against Iran is totally without merit or foundation, because Iran has had nuclear weapons since early, 2002, and perhaps earlier! (Read NEWS1660 for full details).

IV. Evangelical Christians should have been shocked and embarrassed this week by President Bush's bold assertion that he ordered the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq because "God" told him to.

NEWS BRIEF: "'God gave' Bush mission to invade Iraq and Afghanistan", The Scotsman, 7 October 2005

"GEORGE Bush told Palestinian leaders that God had instructed him to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a new BBC television series. The revelation will be seized on by his detractors - at home and abroad - who fear that the president of the United States is waging a religious war in emulation of the Crusades."

President Bush did refer to his campaigns against Afghanistan and Iraq as a "Crusade", but quickly withdrew that remark under heavy criticism. However, his retraction was scarcely noted by many, because of the furor caused by his original remark. Now, let us return to our featured news story.

"His remarks are also bound to cause embarrassment for Tony Blair, his chief partner in the war on terror, who has sought to play down the religious tensions underscoring operations in the Middle East. Mr Bush's remarks were made at a meeting with Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian prime minister, and his then foreign minister in June 2003 ... Nabil Shaath, now the Palestinian information minister, revealed details of the conversation to the BBC3 programme Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs. "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, 'George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan'. And I did, and then God would tell me, 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq ...' And I did'."

By claiming Divine Intervention and Guidance in his disastrous wars against Afghanistan and Iraq, President Bush seems to be placing himself on a par with some of Israel's ancient kings whom God did tell to go and invade certain countries. President Bush has always maintained the posture that he is a Christian, that he reads his Bible daily, and that he believes in End Times prophecies. The entire world has already believed that America's war in the Middle East is a war between Christian America -- led by 'Christian' President Bush -- and the Muslims throughout that region. These remarks will simply add fuel to that perception.

But, now President Bush tells these Palestinian leaders that God has also told him to establish a Palestinian State, using language familiar to Pentecostals.

"The US leader had also said he felt 'God's words coming to me' to 'go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East. And, by God, I'm gonna do it'. Mr Abbas, who was also at the meeting in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, recounted Mr Bush saying: 'I have a moral and religious obligation. So I will get you a Palestinian state'."

Perhaps Mr. Bush should have spent more time studying Biblical doctrine, for then he would have been taught that, since God never contradicts Himself, so He will never tell anyone to do anything which contradicts His Divine Word in the Bible. God has already spoken loudly and clearly regarding both the role Israel will play in the Middle East and the establishment of a Palestinian State.

Regarding Israel, God promised that He would bring Israel back to her ancient land in the "Latter Days" and that she would never be torn out of it again. Read the following articles:

* NEWS1010 - "God's Modern Miracle -- Israel A Nation Again"

* NEWS1806 -- "God Threatens End Times Judgment Against Nations Who "Divide" Israel's Land"

* NEWS1819 -- "Palestinian State Proclaimed As Goal! US, Israel, Palestinians and Vatican All Join Forces To Declare A Palestinian State As A Firm Goal" -- Key Bible Verse: "They shall call its nobles to proclaim the kingdom, but nothing shall be there..." [Isaiah 34:12]. Prophecy says state will be "proclaimed", not actually established

Since God will never contradict Himself, we know He would never tell President Bush to force Israel to give up Biblically mandated land which God had given in perpetuity -- to the Palestinian Islamic enemy, who hates the God of the Bible and wants His Chosen People to be annihilated. Therefore, to which supernatural spirit is President Bush listening to if the Holy Spirit is not the One whispering in his ear?

The spirit to which President Bush is listening to has to be the spirit of Freemasonry and of the Skull & Bones secret societies.

Let us address the issue here of President Bush and America coming under God's judgment because he "forced" Israel to unilaterally withdraw from the Gaza Strip. We have received many emails telling us that Hurricane Katrina must have been God's judgment against America, since she struck New Orleans on August 29, two weeks after Israel began her unilateral withdrawal on August 15.

This date sequence is merely coincidental, for President Bush is not "forcing" Israel to give up Biblically mandated lands, since Israel committed to giving up that territory in the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords (Read NEWS1911 for full details). In other words, the US is not pressuring Israel to give up any more land that the Israeli leadership already committed to give up -- in 1993!

What is really occurring in Israel is that Prime Minister Sharon is simply carrying out the final stages of an elaborate plan created by Illuminist leaders of Great Britain, the United States, and Israel, whereby the Arabs would be deceived into attacking Israel after her unilateral withdrawals; this war would result in the destruction of the Islamic Dome of the Rock so the Masonic Temple of Solomon could be constructed in its place by the Masonic Christ, who will claim to be the Jewish Messiah (Read NEWS1643, "Fervent Masonic Desire To Rebuild Solomon's Temple is The Driving Force Behind Events In The Mid-East Today"; and also NEWS1422 and NEWS1620 and especially NEWS2058, "Jewish Settler Activists Issue Worldwide Warning: Israeli Government Planning Massive Attack On Palestinian Civilians In Gaza Strip After Withdrawing Jewish Settlers To Safety!")

Therefore, when President Bush publicly "forces" Israel to give up her territory, he is merely acting out the role given him, because Israel's leaders already stated in the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords that they would give up that territory. Both Bush and Sharon are cooperating in public to bring this plan to its completion.

This reality is the REAL one, not the public rhetoric which seeks to convince you that President Bush is forcing Israel to make concessions which will doom her as a nation. On the contrary, the Illuminati cannot and will not allow Israel to be defeated -- even though it will look that way initially -- because the entire ritual in Western Freemasonry is tied to the Israeli Old Testament, and to rebuilding Solomon's Temple so that their Masonic Christ can use it as his worship center; of course, this Masonic plan will perfectly fulfill Bible prophecy.

Finally, we should note that President Bush's inflammatory rhetoric that God told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq will further set the genuine Christian community up for persecution if Bush is ever discredited and removed from power. Read NEWS2008 and NEWS1929 for full details. Our eventual global persecution is set further in stone every time President Bush claims to be a Christian leader guided by Christian principles. Eventually, this is the Scripture which shall come to pass;

"... it shall be for a time, times, and a half a time [or three and one-half years]; and when they have made an end of shattering and crushing the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished." (Daniel 12:7; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)

This Scripture will be fulfilled also:

"Then they were each given a long and flowing and festive white robe and told to rest and wait patiently a little while longer, until the number should be complete of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed as they themselves had been." (Revelation 6:11; Ibid.)

When Antichrist can crush the saints of God totally in the 7-year Tribulation Period, President George Bush's claims that his actions were directed by his Christian beliefs, his broad-based support throughout the world will come from the many un-Christian, un-Biblical actions Bush had taken after the attacks 9/11. The biggest action for which President Bush and all Christians shall come under condemnation by the world will be our great pollution of the entire Middle East with Depleted Uranium munitions (Read the articles in our Depleted Uranium Section)

One other thought here: God does not allow Antichrist and his forces to "shatter" the saints until the last half of the Tribulation Period. Today, the saints of God are firmly in His hands, protected by the power of the Holy Spirit. While many Christians continue to die for their faith throughout the world, God has not yet allowed Satan to move against them globally in such a way as to "crush the power of the Holy People".

During this time of great trouble, let us comfort each other with this understanding.

We have posted the picture of our Depleted Uranium DVD at the top of this story because tens of millions of Islamic people in the Middle East adjacent to Afghanistan and Iraq are going to die from exposure to Depleted Uranium munitions which Coalition Forces are daily exploding. Additionally, virtually every American soldier who served in these two theaters are going to die over the next 20 years.

This genocide through D.U. is deliberate. The idea that "God" told President Bush to launch a silent uranium war against these peoples is loathsome to the highest degree. We believe that, on Judgment Day, or Rewards Day, every single pastor who supported the President and who urged his people to support him, will face an angry Jesus Christ on this issue!

V. Arab military forces continue to use the Gaza Strip and the West Bank as "forward deployment" locations, staging large numbers of trained fighters, and ammunition of all types, in preparation for what appears to be all-out war against Israel. This kind of preparations would be taken by any military analysts as a firm sign of impending war. Right on cue, Israel turns a deaf ear and a blind eye towards the build-up.

NEWS BRIEF: "Hamas' West Bank battle plan exposed", WorldNetDaily, October 6, 2005

"JERUSALEM – After declaring Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip a victory for their 'resistance operations', Hamas is now planning to focus attacks on the West Bank, where it will fire rockets and carry out guerrilla operations against nearby Jewish towns until Israel leaves the territory ... [Hamas will be] transporting warfare technologies such as mortars and rockets from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank. These will provide an easy way to bombard Israeli populated areas adjacent to the security fence, and the fence, which is currently under construction, will therefore become useless', stated a recent publication by the Al-Mustaqbal Research Center in Gaza ... Al-Mustaqbal said Israel's withdrawal in August from four West Bank towns provides Hamas and other terror groups with a staging ground from which to launch attacks and to transport rockets to other West Bank communities."

Note the usage of the following key words which demonstrate that Arabs are building up these vacated territories as forward staging areas:

"[Hamas will be] transporting warfare technologies such as mortars and rockets from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank."

" Israel's withdrawal in August from four West Bank towns provides Hamas and other terror groups with a staging ground ..."

An inside military source within Israel -- which has consistently provided good solid information in the past -- has emailed Cutting Edge telling of the many preparations for war which the Arabs are carrying out. Listen to the points made from this inside Jewish military source:

"I told you two years ago that we were due for another Yom Kippur War. Our enemies choose to attack on that day, most especially, because it is the holiest day of the year. The Day of Atonement it is called, and the males put down their weapons and spend the day in the synagogue repenting of their misdeeds."

"Security sources continue to report arms and 'troop' movements into Gaza and on into the West Bank."

"Yes, I have heard through my 'grapevine' that war will probably commence this Yom Kippur." NOTE: While this date for the commencement of all-out regional war is surely possible, it does seem that the Illuminati has many things they must accomplish beforehand. We might be looking at all-out war next Yom Kippur, in 2006.

"Remember that Ramadan starts in a few days, and the Muslims believe that the Great Satan is chained during the month of Ramadan. What an opportune time for Islam to show its strength, with America on the verge of bankruptcy from two weather war hurricanes. And, quite possibly a huge earthquake.'

"The big question is not whether the factions are armed enough, the question is whether there is enough unity amongst the fragmented Hizbullah, Hamas, National Guards (Abu Mazen's police) and other groups vying for control in the region. Some feel that once Egypt is involved in the attack, all Arab forces, whether at odds with each other or not, will align just because they are all fighting the same enemy."

"You are quite correct that the 'moment' you have been writing about for so long is upon us."

VI. President Bush nominated another "stealth" candidate as Supreme Court Justice, his long-time confident, Harriet Miers. Two days after Bush publicized his choice, news stories began to appear, telling us that she, like Bush, was Born Again. Now, the only question is whether Harriet Miers is the same type of "stealth" Christian which President Bush has proven to be? (Read "President Bush's Evil vs Good Fruits" table)

NEWS BRIEF: "Bush picks insider for Supreme Court", My Way News, October 3, 3005

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush on Monday nominated a member of his inner circle, White House counsel Harriet Miers, for a Supreme Court vacancy, choosing a woman with plenty of legal experience but who is not a judge to replace the retiring Sandra Day O'Connor. Miers, 60, a longtime ally of Bush's going back to his days as Texas governor, would be the third woman ever to serve on the Supreme Court .... In an Oval Office ceremony with Miers at his side, Bush credited her with breaking down barriers to women in the Texas legal profession, becoming the first woman to head her Dallas law firm, the first woman president of the Dallas Bar Association and the first woman elected president of the state bar of Texas. 'I believe that senators of both parties will find that Harriet Miers' talent, experience and judicial philosophy make her a superb choice to safeguard the constitutional liberties and quality of all Americans', Bush said."

"... Democrats were stung when Roberts, during his confirmation hearings, refused to say how he would rule on cases that came before the high court. 'We know even less about Harriet Miers than we did about John Roberts and because this is the critical swing seat on the court, Americans will need to know a lot more about Miers's judicial philosophy and legal background before any vote for confirmation', he (Senator Schummer) said ... Bush said Miers would not legislate from the bench and would strictly interpret the Constitution, his code language for a conservative philosophy."

However, as this article went on to state, Miers' position on Abortion was unknown! However, immediately, some news articles began to flesh out her probable positions on issues as critical as abortion.

NEWS BRIEF: "Mystery-woman Miers: New clues to resume' -- Bush pick supported International Criminal Court, homosexual adoptions, women in combat, tax hike", By Joseph Farah, WorldNetDaily, October 3, 2005

"WASHINGTON – Harriet Miers, President Bush's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court to replace Sandra Day O'Connor, is on record as supporting the establishment of the International Criminal Court, homosexual adoptions, a major local tax increase and women in combat, WorldNetDaily has learned. While some conservative leaders and organizations were stunned by the appointment, most were not alarmed by the lack of a paper trail by the nominee who has never served as a judge at any level. But a profile of her positions as a leader of the American Bar Association, a Dallas city councilwoman and as presidential counselor is unlikely to ease the concerns of those who were expecting Bush to fulfill his promise to name a justice in the mold of Clarence Thomas or Antonin Scalia."

One Liberal commentator even stated that "Democrats and liberals who were willing to use the military for purposes of social experimentation have reason to be pleased." Whenever Liberals are pleased with a nomination, Conservative Christians have much reason to fear! Indeed, fears seem to be justified by a revelation later made in this editorial by Joseph Farah. Miers may have a pro-homosexual bent to her judicial philosophy.

"... Miers approved the Bush administrations retention of President Clinton's 'don't ask, don't tell' regulations, which, she says, are different from the 1993 law passed by Congress." (Ibid.) This 'don't ask, don't tell' policy was one of the very first which President Clinton enacted when he took office; he issued an order that the military could no longer oust gays, but had to adopt a passive policy whereby they could not prosecute them for their sexual orientation as long as they told no one they were gay. Clinton's policy was called 'don't ask, don't tell', and was widely condemned by Conservatives and/or Christians; yet, no one but Cutting Edge even noted that President Bush kept this policy once he assumed office, and now, we are told that Harriet Miers approved of Bush's retention of this pro-gay policy!

Farah continues with Miers, listing positions known to have been held by her in the past.

"Meanwhile, during Miers long affiliation with the American Bar Association, she submitted a 1999 report to the ABA's house of delegates that included recommendations to develop and establish an International Criminal Court and the enactment of laws and public policy providing that the sexual orientation of adults be no bar to adoption of children. Under the heading Family Law and subheading Adoption, the document states: 'Supports the enactment of laws and public policy which provide that sexual orientation shall not be a bar to adoption when the adoption is determined to be in the best interest of the child'." (Ibid.)

This is really problematic, on two accounts. Most troubling is Miers' position supporting gay adoption of children. This position is not one taken by a genuinely Born Again believer.

However, her support of the International Criminal Court demonstrates her sterling globalist, Illuminist bent. Conservatives and/or Christians have opposed an International Criminal Court since the end of World War I, when the Illuminati tried to establish both a global government (League of Nations) and an International Court. Christian senators at that time sunk the proposal on prophetic grounds. Thus, it is with great alarm that we see Harriet Miers supporting this precursor to the globalist government of Antichrist.

As a finale', Farah lists another connection between Harriet Miers and the gay community.

"As a city councilwoman, Miers also said Dallas had a responsibility to pay for AIDS education and patient services. And she courted the support of the Lesbian/Gay Coalition of Dallas in her successful 1989 campaign." (Ibid.)

Then, two days after President Bush announced his choice, we saw our first story that Harriet Miers was a Born Again Christian, who attended the same church in Washington, DC, that President Bush attended -- the St. John's Episcopal Church.

NEWS BRIEF: "In Midcareer, a Turn to Faith to Fill a Void", The New York Times, October 5, 2005

" DALLAS, Oct. 4 - By 1979, Harriet E. Miers, then in her mid-30's, had accomplished what some people take a lifetime to achieve. She was a partner at Locke Purnell Boren Laney & Neely, one of the most prestigious law firms in the South, with an office on the 35th floor of the Republic National Bank Tower in downtown Dallas. But she still felt something was missing in her life, and it was after a series of long discussions - rambling conversations about family and religion and other matters that typically stretched from early evening into the night - with Nathan L. Hecht, a junior colleague at the law firm, that she made a decision that many of the people around her say changed her life.

" 'She decided that she wanted faith to be a bigger part of her life', Justice Hecht, who now serves on the Texas Supreme Court, said in an interview. 'One evening she called me to her office and said she was ready to make a commitment' to accept Jesus Christ as her savior and be born again, he said. He walked down the hallway from his office to hers, and there amid the legal briefs and court papers, Ms. Miers and Justice Hecht 'prayed and talked', he said. She was baptized not long after that, at the Valley View Christian Church.

"It was a pivotal personal transformation for the woman now named for a seat on the United States Supreme Court, not entirely unlike that experienced by President Bush and others in the Texas political and business establishment of that time."

Therefore, it is distressing to hear that Harriet Miers' conversion experience is much like that of President Bush, a conversion which we know is not backed up by any good spiritual fruits whatsoever. Perhaps this similarity is the reason why Ms Miers was able to be such a long-term Bush insider. After all, the Bible informs us: "How can two walk except they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3) Therefore, the reason Miers and Bush have walked together for such a long time, and that she is such an insider confidant, is that they are truly 'agreed' on the issues.

Note that Ms Miers was said to be Born Again in 1979 -- well before many of her actions while holding offices in Texas and in Bush's inner circle.

That news is not good for the genuine Christian. We hope and pray we are wrong, for all of us want abortion and other moral, anti-Christian issues, to be reversed by the High Court. However, other Christians are also not convinced.

NEWS BRIEF: "Miers' Conservative Christian Beliefs Fail to Dispel Evangelical Doubts About Her Nomination", AP Breaking News, October 7, 2005

" If Harriet Miers is confirmed, evangelicals can finally claim one of their own on the U.S. Supreme Court. Yet the spiritual journey that led her to be born again and spend 25 years affiliated with a conservative church has not eased concerns among Christians about her views on abortion, gay rights and other key social issues. 'Our lack of knowledge about Harriet Miers, and the absence of a record on the bench, give us insufficient information', said Tony Perkins, of the conservative Family Research Council."

"... But church involvement alone may not be enough to assuage Christian conservatives. John Green, an expert on religion and politics at the University of Akron, said that despite Miers' religious credentials she's failing to gain unequivocal support from some evangelicals partly because they feel burned by past nominees such as Justice David Souter, who was selected by the first President Bush and turned out to be more liberal on the bench than they wished ... , evangelicals are acutely aware of the diverse beliefs within their own movement; someone who shares their faith may not necessarily hold the same political outlook. 'Does she connect her beliefs up to politics in the way that they would like? I think the answer is they just don't know', Green said."

The fact that neither President Bush nor Ms Miers are coming forth with detailed answers is unnerving many Christians who had counted heavily on President Bush nominating a Christian justice who would fight for moral issues like eliminating abortion and stemming the runaway gay freight train. Miers' past positions simply are unknown and no one is stepping forward with concrete answers as to how she would stand.

It did not take long after her nomination before Conservatives began to complain that Ms Miers possessed no credible credentials to be a Supreme Court Justice. George Will seemed to state the case best.

NEWS BRIEF: "Miers is the wrong pick", by George Will, Townhall, October 4, 2005

"WASHINGTON -- Senators beginning what ought to be a protracted and exacting scrutiny of Harriet Miers should be guided by three rules. First, it is not important that she be confirmed. Second, it might be very important that she not be. Third, the presumption -- perhaps rebuttable but certainly in need of rebutting -- should be that her nomination is not a defensible exercise of presidential discretion ... It is not important that she be confirmed because there is no evidence that she is among the leading lights of American jurisprudence, or that she possesses talents commensurate with the Supreme Court's tasks."

Indeed, the President's "assurances" that Miers would be a good pick for Conservatives and/or Christians boils down to the "Trust me, once she gets on the Court, you will be pleased". What is disconcerting to knowledge Conservatives is that this line of assurance was exactly what came from the lips of President Bush, Sr., when he nominated David Souter, a pick which has proven to be anything other than "conservative". Souter has consistently voted Liberal since taking his seat on the Court.

George Will then speaks directly to Miers' lack of visible qualifications for the Supreme Court.

"... there is no reason to believe that Miers' nomination resulted from the president's careful consultation with people capable of such judgments. If 100 such people had been asked to list 100 individuals who have given evidence of the reflectiveness and excellence requisite in a justice, Miers' name probably would not have appeared in any of the 10,000 places on those lists."

In other words, no expert in the entire country would have placed Harriet Miers in any prospective list of candidates qualified for the post of Supreme Court Justice. This reality has been expressed by Conservative editorials constantly in the past few days, and is apparently very true: Miers is not 'supremely' qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. This fact should bother Christians greatly, for it suggests that the only way President Bush could find a candidate who would be Conservative with Christian values is to turn to someone who is not qualified!

However, Harriet Miers may not be truly anti-abortion! Listen:

NEWS BRIEF: "Miers Led Bid to Revisit Abortion Stance", Brietbart.com, October 3, 2005

" President Bush's choice to fill the seat of retiring Supreme Court Justice and moderate abortion rights supporter Sandra Day O'Connor was a leader in an unsuccessful fight to get the nation's largest lawyers' group to reconsider its pro-abortion rights stance. As president of the Texas State Bar in 1993, Harriet Miers urged the national American Bar Association to put the abortion issue to a referendum of the group's full membership ... Miers was among a group of lawyers from the Texas bar and elsewhere who had argued that the ABA should have a neutral stance on abortion."

Miers argued that the national American Bar Association adopt a "neutral stance" on the issue of abortion?! That is not what fundamental Christians are looking for in a Supreme Court justice! A neutral stance means defeat for the Christian cause; only by aggressively fighting for Biblical principles with no holds barred and with no compromise -- even if that means defeat -- can Christians ever hope to win the day.

Therefore, a "neutral stance on abortion" is so problematic in terms of her future votes on the High Court, Christians should reject this nomination forthwith.

One Christian group is not deceived.

NEWS BRIEF: "Operation Rescue to Miers: Give Us Reason to Trust You or Withdraw", Operation Rescue, October 6th, 2005

"Washington, DC – Operation Rescue is asking Harriet Miers to show reason why pro-life Americans should trust her to protect pre-born babies from abortion, or else withdraw her name from consideration to the Supreme Court of the United States. Operation Rescue continues to be disappointed in lack of information and track record for Hariett Miers ... At least nine of the last twelve Republican appointees to the Supreme Court have been pro-abortion. Five of the seven Justices who voted for Roe v. Wade were Republican appointees. Based on that track record, it is insulting, and frankly, irrational for President Bush to ask the pro-life community to simply trust him that Miers will be the kind of judge that will help end the national disgrace of abortion on demand,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “There is too much at stake. We will not gamble the lives of innocent children on a ‘hope so’ nominee'.”

Operation Rescue has hit the nail right on the head! For four decades now, Conservatives and/or Christians have been fooled by Republican "Conservative" politicians on the moral issues before the High Court. Every single moral collapse which the Supreme Court has engineered since World War II has been enabled by justices who had been chosen by Republican Presidents! Yet, President Bush's propaganda machine continues to pump out the rhetoric, "We need your support to get President Bush's court nominees approved"! (Read NEWS2025 for full details)

Christians will never learn, because we never pay attention, never learn from history, and never strictly apply Biblical standards to the politicians and the issues of the day! For this reason, Christian pastors currently serving in pulpits throughout this nation can look at our table on Bush's Evil vs Good Fruits, not challenge any of the 50+ evil fruits and never supply any good fruits we might have missed, and then turn to say that the "jury is still out on whether Bush is a Christian.

I can hear Jesus lament: "Woe to You blind guides, filtering out a gnat and gulping down a camel!" (Matthew 23:24)

Be careful of following a spiritual "blind guide" for you and he shall fall into the eternal ditch together! "Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?" (Luke 6:39)

PRESIDENT BUSH INVENTS YET ANOTHER REASON HE COULD IMPOSE MARTIAL LAW UNDER MILITARY RULE: "If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator." (President-elect Bush, to Congress, Aired December 18, 2000)

---------Conclusion----------------"Thou hatest wickedness." Psalm 45:7

"Be ye angry, and sin not." There can hardly be goodness in a man if he be not angry at sin; he who loves truth must hate every false way. How our Lord Jesus hated it when the temptation came! Thrice it assailed Him in different forms, but ever He met it with, "Get thee behind me, Satan." He hated it in others; none the less fervently because He showed His hate oftener in tears of pity than in words of rebuke; yet what language could be more stern, more Elijah-like, than the words, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer."

He hated wickedness, so much that He bled to wound it to the heart; He died that it might die; He was buried that He might bury it in His tomb; and He rose that He might for ever trample it beneath His feet. Christ is in the Gospel, and that Gospel is opposed to wickedness in every shape.

Wickedness arrays itself in fair garments, and imitates the language of holiness; but the precepts of Jesus, like His famous scourge of small cords, chase it out of the temple, and will not tolerate it in the Church. So, too, in the heart where Jesus reigns, what war there is between Christ and Belial! And when our Redeemer shall come to be our Judge, those thundering words, "Depart, ye cursed" which are, indeed, but a prolongation of His life-teaching concerning sin, shall manifest His abhorrence of iniquity. As warm as is His love to sinners, so hot is His hatred of sin; as perfect as is His righteousness, so complete shall be the destruction of every form of wickedness. O thou glorious champion of right, and destroyer of wrong, for this cause hath God, even Thy God, anointed thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows. (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
