FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, YOU WILL BE ON
This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.
And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God's people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.
Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God's people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.
The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.
Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.
Since early November, we have been stating, at the beginning of every show, that we will give you insights so startling that you would never read the news the same way again. Toward this end, we have been laying the groundwork conceptually, providing insights into current world events that most people have never thought of before. Today, we would like to utilize these fundamental concepts as we look at some of today's news.
NEWS BRIEF: People Magazine, January 20, 1992, "I Helped My Mother Die: Love Unto Death", p. 56-63.
The drumbeat is getting more intense in the campaign to convince Americans that Personal Suicide is noble, courageous, normal, and the best for society. In this true story, Ida Rollin, the mother of NBC Correspondent Betty Rollin, was suffering from terminal ovarian cancer. Before we continue with this story, we need to quickly review how it fits into the scheme of the coming New World Order.
As we have stated before, the New Age Movement has repeatedly reiterated their view that Mother Earth is seriously over-populated. Our current 6 billion people is 4 billion more than can be adequately supported. Therefore, we must immediately move to reduce this population. One of the immediate steps which they have advocated is Human Euthanasia, beginning with the terminally ill. It is difficult to argue with anyone who wants to escape from a terminal, painful illness. This is truly a personal decision.
The danger which this persistent advocacy of euthanasia poses to society is that history has amply proven it is a very slippery slope. Once the majority of the population becomes convinced of a person's right to die under certain circumstances, the door is opened just enough so that people will then allow someone else to make this life-ending situation for the terminally ill. This probably would be a close relative at first, but would later become Hospital doctors or administrators. Finally, compassionate doctors acting on behalf of the government would be making this decision, and we would have another genocide occurring. This progression of events occurred just in this way in Germany from 1920-1940.
In the 1920's, articles occurred in newspapers and magazines quite regularly arguing that people should be allowed to kill themselves, with help from relatives. Always, the situation was so grim that no one could argue against the suicide decision without appearing to lack compassion. The articles were written so that the decision to commit suicide seemed noble, courageous, and societally correct. Movies were made which depicted these circumstances very emotionally.
A parallel campaign was simultaneously being waged to convince Germans that the resources of the German Fatherland were being drained away by people whose quality of life had deteriorated so badly that they had no right to continue to live. These people were the very elderly, the mentally and physically handicapped, and the Jew.
By the late 1920's, individual doctors were taking matters into their own hands and were killing people in their care, even when the ill person had no desire to exit. Very soon, tens of thousands of people were being killed by a misapplication of medical care. Death certificates were faked so that the true cause of death was hidden.
When Adolf Hitler came to power, he combined these two threads so that anyone who was terminally ill or handicapped in some way was being systematically killed. From 1933-45, this killing was being carried out in medical or nursing care institutions. In 1938, when Hitler began his systematic death camp killing, he decided to maintain the facade of medical decision-making. Therefore, he picked certain doctors who had been active in euthanasia in their facilities to direct the massive statewide killing. To the very end of the war, medical doctors directed the slaughter. Robert Jay Lifton, in his book, The Nazi Doctors, emphatically declares that without the first step of human euthanasia, Hitler would never have been able to carry out his program of slaughter. By 1938, enough German citizens had become desensitized to the concept of human killing that they did not offer resistance to the final step of forced killing. Remember that Hitler's plans were so massive they required the willing contribution of millions of German citizens. Hitler provided the fig leaf covering of medical necessity in the forced euthanasia program so that Germans could feel justified in either actively participating in it or passively allowing it to continue.
Our tremendous concern is fueled by the fact that history does repeat itself because human nature never changes. Further, when we realize the New Age Movement is just sanitized Nazism and that their plans actively call for the greatest reduction in population the world has ever seen, we have ample reason to be concerned.
Let us now return to our story.
NBC News correspondent, Betty Rollin, assisted her 76-year-old mother, Ida Rollins, in suicide. Ida was suffering from terminal ovarian cancer and wanted to escape the pain. Notice the passages in this story which depict the hopelessness which Ida felt.
Now Ida makes her noble and courageous decision to check out. "It was at that point...that she decided to die.. 'I've had a wonderful life, but now it's over," Ida said. "It's time to go." And her daughter, Betty, agreed. The only question remained how, as neither one knew how to medically accomplish Ida's desire. Betty contacted several doctors and pharmacists, only to have these insensitive fools refuse to tell her how to kill her mother. Finally, a friend of Betty told her of a doctor in Europe who supported Euthanasia. Betty contacted him; he sold her the pills and gave her explicit instructions. Ida was very happy. Four days later, Betty assisted Ida in her death.
This all occurred in 1983. Since then, Betty has lost both her breasts to cancer, and "death is never far" from her mind. But, such societal progress has now been made in the acceptability of personal suicide that Betty does not have to worry about not knowing how to commit suicide. She keeps her "copy of Final Exit prominently displayed on her coffee table". Final Exit is the current best-selling book which explicitly instructs anyone how to commit suicide or how to assist someone else. Betty is one of the 520,000 Americans who have purchased the book thus far. America is clearly very far down that acceptability road which Germany traveled just a few decades ago.
But, soon, many more Americans will be persuaded that personal suicide is the correct action to take, both personally and societally. During this past week, ABC aired a program based upon Rollin's story entitled Last Wish, starring Patty Duke and Maureen Stapleton. The process of persuasion continues very effectively. This campaign is being conducted utilizing the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan. Step #4, that of Sheer Repetition, is continuing. People's attitudes against suicide is being eroded. Soon, we will be at the point of which Revelation speaks, when men will slaughter one another.
The New World Order Plan to establish a One-World Government that is capable of totalitarian control over both individuals and the Economy is proceeding without delay. Consider these two news briefs from a Christian Newsletter, Michael's Journal, September-October, 1991.
NEWS BRIEF: Quoting from the French Press Agency in Paris, "To live without cash in France will soon be possible: Posts [Post Office] and Telecommunications will launch in France in 1992 an electronic wallet, allowing the payment of all one's purchases with a card containing a microcomputer chip ... The system will be tried out for 18 months in an average city. If successful, that system will be generalized all over France."
Revelation 13:16-17, "He [False Prophet] compels all alike both small and great, the rich and the poor, both free and slave, to be marked with an inscription stamped on their right hands or on the foreheads, so that no one will have the power to buy or sell unless he bears the stamp [mark], that is, the name of the beast or the number of his name."
Biblical scholars have long maintained that this prophecy could not be fulfilled unless all cash was eliminated from the economy. Until the advent of the computer, scholars had no idea how this feat could be accomplished. In 1986, when I was in Hong Kong for business I saw this cashless system being tested in large grocery stores. In 1989, this system was introduced into the United States in certain gasoline stations. This is the first instance of which I am aware that a cashless system is being introduced in an entire economic environment, i.e., selected towns. Soon, all France will be converted.
Notice that this interim step does not require persons to be physically marked. Thus, people will be conditioned toward a cashless economy and will be ready to accept marking once the very charismatic and popular Maitreya the Christ arises. Now consider this other interim step.
Again quoting from Michael's Journal: "The veins of the hand could be used to thwart credit card fraud through a technique perfected by researchers of the Cambridge British group of technology. Instead of dialing the secret code, the credit card owners will put their fists into a machine that will read the design of the veins on the reverse of their hands...The design of the veins will then be compared [by the machine's computer] with that of the card owner, recorded before...The camera will even be able to detect if the hand put in the machine really belongs to a living person, by measuring the rate of oxygen in the veins."
This sophisticated technology does indeed stagger the imagination. Truly, Satan could never have united the world in the manner required to fulfill all God's prophecies without modern technology. In our Seminar, we examine the question, "Why has the Twentieth Century witnessed the historically unparalleled explosion of technology, starting in the first decade?" Is there any scientific evidence that man in this century is more intelligent than in previous centuries? There is no such scientific evidence. To understand a possible explanation, consider what some New Age and technological leaders have recently said:
At this point, we need to ask the inevitable question: As the Holy Spirit began to withdraw His restraining power, as the Apostle Paul predicted He would do in the last days, did Satan rush into the resulting vacuum? Consider Satan's problem. He wanted to rule the world, but could only do so as the Holy Spirit withdrew His restraining power. Further, Jesus set a TIMETABLE to this process in Matthew 24:34, when He prophesied that all last days' prophecies would occur within one human lifetime. Satan could not control the world as God had prophesied with the level of technology which existed in the beginning of this century. To fulfill God's prophesies of a one-world government, and a one-world cashless economy, Satan needed modern technology.
Satan is conceivably responsible for the incredibly quick technological advance which has been achieved since World War I.
I have listed below some of the required technologies:
"...More and more people [throughout the world] are:
How has this historically unprecedented change occurred? Neuharth identifies the agent of change as coming from America. "Much of the common ground comes from the global spread of U.S. pop culture -- which has become everybody's culture....Today, the world is coming closer to what Marshall McLuhan predicted 25 years ago: a global village." (p. 5-6)
Neuharth then devotes an entire chapter to cite examples of how so many nations in the world are uniting because of their acceptance of American culture, American values. He concludes this chapter by saying
"..History will look back on this as the American Age....the beat of rock 'n' roll builds bridges, not barriers." (p. 13, 19)
This is a serious indictment against a formerly Christian America. These cultural values are not Christian values. These values contain much objectionable, sinful, and even Satanic values. And they are paving the way for the coming New World Order, Satan's kingdom. God will call America to judgment for this deception of the peoples of the world. This activity literally is leading people into Hell. Remember the Biblical principle that a nation, or individuals, will be held accountable for the amount of spiritual light which they have received. America has received massive amounts of true Biblical Christianity, and we have rejected it in the last 25 years. The replacement has been unChristian and is now polluting the world and leading the nations into the arms of Anti-Christ.
The final lie which we are encouraging the world to believe is that man is inherently good. This false belief is causing people to believe that man can create his own utopia if only people would begin thinking positive thoughts and only if a Enlightened One would arise to provide the proper leadership. Of course, this paves the way for Anti-Christ. I am convinced that the reason God will allow the world to briefly unite under Anti-Christ is so that, on Judgment Day, no man could say to Him, "God, if You had only left mankind alone, we could have created our own Utopia, without Your divisive commandments." By allowing man to try to create his own Utopia, God will eternally prove that man's nature is so inherently evil that he could never create Utopia.
But, make no mistake about the fact that the New World Order is death, the most widespread death the world has ever seen. Approximately two-thirds of the population will die, most people being deliberately exterminated. And, this will occur immediately after the peoples of the world have been persuaded that Peace and Safety have finally been realized in human history!! This is precisely the Plan for the New World Order, and it fulfills Biblical prophecy perfectly!!
At this point, many people ask, "Why would the people leading the New World Order want to kill so many other human beings?" This question is perfectly logical, since you are a normal person who doesn't want to hurt anyone else. But, these leaders are not normal, even though their Media Campaigns have carefully painted the picture of normalcy. These leaders are members of Satanic Secret Societies, and have been secretly corrupted by promises of achieving power and wealth beyond imagination. Their leader is Lucifer, whether these men realize it or not. And, Lucifer is Satan. Satan hates all people, simply because we have been created in the image of God. Satan would like nothing better than to see all mankind dead, DEAD!
If you doubt this premise, simply remember the statement of Jesus Christ, in Matthew 24, the great chapter of End of the Age prophecies. In Matthew 24:22, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." Jesus warns us here that the goal of the forces of Anti-Christ is to totally obliterate all mankind. Jesus intervenes, but only to save "His Elect", those few born-again Christians left on the planet, Christians who accepted Jesus as Savior after the Rapture. All sinners have been killed by judgment in the Great Tribulation.
All men and women dead. Satan hates every human being, even those who are serving him in Satanic covens. You must reorient your thinking. Time grows very short.
