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.
We appreciate the many phone calls and letters which we receive from our listeners. The overwhelming majority of this communication has been very positive, as people appreciate the insights which we have been presenting into the Plans of the New World Order, and what impact they can expect in their lives and in the lives of their loved ones. However, some have expressed their view that we are unrelentingly negative; we certainly do not intend this to be the case, and we certainly are not negative personally. However, we are covering the most negative of all possible subjects, as we discuss the many aspects of the impending Kingdom of Anti-Christ.
Our basic premise is one of supreme hope - the Blessed Hope of every Christian - the soon return of Jesus Christ for the Rapture of His Church. We know that Jesus will be returning soon because He told us in Matthew 24:33, "So also when you see these signs coming to pass, you know that He is near, at the very doors." Jesus is at the doors, beloved, and His coming for His Church will occur very soon. This news should gladden the heart of every believer, and should stimulate each one of us to greater activity for our blessed Redeemer. In Matthew 25:13, Jesus told us what we should be doing as we saw the signs approaching, "Watch, therefore, give strict attention and be cautious and active -- for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come." (Amplified).
Notice the many action verbs in this passage:
Rather than trying to ignore what is happening all around us, Jesus is telling us to watch carefully as the events which have been prophesied in Scripture begin to come to pass. God states this concept of carefully watching for the fulfillment of His prophecies, in Isaiah 34:16, "Seek out of the book of the Lord and read; no one of these details of prophecy shall fail; none shall want her mate in fulfillment; for the mouth of the Lord has commanded, and His Spirit has gathered them." (Amplified)
Again, in Revelation 17:17, Jesus said, "For God has put it into their hearts to carry out His own purpose by acting in harmony in surrendering their royal power and authority to the beast, until the prophetic words...of God shall be fulfilled." (Amplified).
So, we Christians are to expect all God's prophetic words to BE fulfilled, and are to expectantly watch as they begin to be fulfilled. This is why Jesus then tells us to "Give strict attention" to the events occurring in the world. He knows that all Christians and their families will be impacted tremendously as the Holy Spirit begins to allow Satan to marshal his forces to bring the Kingdom of Anti-Christ into being. Satan has been working for most of this century to change people's attitudes in such a way that he can establish his kingdom. Now that we are near the completion of his plan, we can see that all of us, and our impressionable youth, are being impacted by many of the anti-Christian trends in our society:
substituting easy beliefs and false doctrine.
* Constant exposure to violence and murder, which is terribly desensitizing our youth, especially boys.
Thus, Jesus warns us to be "cautious" as we see the end of the age approaching. Cautious, not only for our souls, but cautious for the souls of our loved ones, because THE hallmark sign of the end of the age is deception. Satan will attempt to bring in his kingdom with no one understanding what is occurring. Many people will actually take the Mark of the Beast, which is prophesied in Revelation 13:16-18, and not understand the eternal significance of what they have just done.
Finally, Jesus admonishes us to "be active" as we see the end of the age approaching. We are to be actively seeking His face and reading His word. We are to be actively seeking the power of the Holy Spirit which will allow us to be strong in the Lord during these spiritually dark times. More than ever before, Christians have the opportunity to be strong lights in this present darkness. God foretells this type of believer in the end of the age in Daniel 11:32b-35, "but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm, and do exploits for God. And they who...understand among the people shall instruct many and make them understand..."
This is precisely the supreme goal of this ministry -- to instruct many Christians and unbelievers as to what is going on today, especially since it is going on in the most deceptive way possible. Satan's march toward his kingdom is occurring so subtlety, and over so many years, that most of the people have no clue as to what is happening. We do not want that to happen to you, especially since God then foretells in this passage what will happen next: "Some of those who are...prudent and [understand] shall be weakened and fall; thus, then, the insincere among the people will lose courage and become deserters. It will be a test, to refine, to purify, and make those among God's people white, even to the time of the end..." (Daniel 11:35, Amplified).
As we have stated many times before, we believe in the Rapture of the Christian Church before the beginning of the Great Tribulation. However, we need to carefully examine the starting point carefully. In Daniel 9:27, we see that the Great Tribulation begins when the Anti-Christ signs a peace treaty with Israel. We believe that he will be on the earth claiming to be the Messiah, for some months before he signs this treaty with Israel. We also believe that the world will experience some very frightening, even deadly, perils which will set the stage for his appearance. As one New Age author states, "blood will run in the streets".
Therefore, dear listener, we intend to inform you, with the hope that this information will stimulate you to greater activity with Jesus Christ and for Him in these perilous times. Thus, you will walk more closely with Jesus Christ, and will be receiving the Blessed Assurance from the Holy Spirit that we will soon be going home. Praise God!!!
Even as Operation Rescue efforts in Buffalo, New York, are winding down, abortion seems to be entering a new phase, a much more troubling phase. Abortion is about to enter into the private-enterprise, profit-making business.
NEWS BRIEF: The Boston Globe, Wednesday, April 1, 1992, "Senate Debates Fetal Tissue Transplant Ban". The Senate voted overwhelmingly to lift a four-year ban on fetal tissue transplants. Fetal tissue refers to the body parts of babies who have been killed during abortion. Medical science has discovered that baby tissue contains certain chemicals that later disappear during a person's life. These chemicals are supposedly very useful in treating diseases which today are incurable, such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, diabetes, spinal cord injuries, some types of cancer, and a wide range of birth defects and genetic diseases.
While the end result is admirable, the method to achieve it is certainly abominable. To get these valuable tissues, it is necessary to abort babies and to use their body parts. So far, advocates of this baby tissue research argue that they are using only babies who have been aborted anyway, that no baby is being killed simply to supply the research. However, these advocates also agree that, if this research continues, the demand for baby body tissues will so skyrocket that abortions will be performed for the sole purpose of obtaining their bodies.
Senator Edward Kennedy admitted, "Many of my colleagues are wrestling with this issue. They want very much to move this vital research forward, but they share the concern of the (Bush) administration that the research may increase the incidence of abortion." Nevertheless, once this lip-service is paid to the concern, this Senator joined with his other colleagues to vote to allow baby tissue research, because the "great promise for helping millions of Americans with incurable diseases" is simply too great of an opportunity to pass up. In other words, Senator Kennedy agrees with the Communists and New World Order advocates that the "Ends Justify The Means".
Once American business gets into the act of supplying the demand for chemicals which can cure the diseases which are afflicting millions of Americans, demand for baby tissue will become infinitely great. Millions more babies will be killed. At first, the answer will be to pay women to abort their babies, which will cause many to become pregnant for this express purpose. This will be especially attractive to women of low-income, as their bodies can be money-producing machines. However, the long-term prospects for massive numbers of babies will focus on moving outside the womb. Research will soon perfect the capability of conceiving babies in a laboratory setting, and keeping them alive artificially until such time as they are most useful for tissue harvesting. It is, indeed, shocking to see how often this term, "harvesting", is being utilized in American culture today. During one of our seminars, a nurse told us that this is a common term among doctors and nurses. Further we are seeing it used in newspapers and magazines more frequently. We are being conditioned, or desensitized, to this concept that human beings can be operated upon to remove their organs, including vital organs.
But, why should we be surprised? Evolution teaches that man is nothing more than an animal. The Bible states quite strongly that "sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death". (James 1:15). This passage speaks of process, even a long process, when sin begins in the heart and mind of the individual, but it does not immediately bring death. However, as the individual, or the nation, continues to hold this sin in their minds, they eventually reach the point when death will begin to occur. We have numerous examples to point to, but the most obvious example is the murder of 6 million Jews in Nazi Germany. Fully 100 years before Hitler began murdering Jews, Germans began to move away from the Christian doctrines, and began glorifying the old occultic Nordic legends. Many of these legends were extremely violent and murderous. This process continued until about 20 years before Hitler came to power, when occultism and outright Satanism began to dramatically increase in popularity. Once Hitler came to power, filled with his murderous hatred of Jews, the German people were ready to accept his anti-Semitism. The process was long, but it reached its inevitable end of physical death, first for the Jew, and secondly, for millions of Germans, Russians, Americans, and many others in World War II.
Today, we are going down the same road with abortion. Some authors have actually begun using the term, "holocaust" to refer to our 30 million babies killed since 1973. But, you haven't seen anything yet. We must intensify our prayers and our efforts to shut this abortion industry down.
Nothing convinces me more that Satan's supernatural power has been working behind the scenes to bring about the New World Order more than this quote, written in the mid-1700's, concerning the last stages of the 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 [the world], at the end, under our beneficent rule." (Bill Cooper, "Behold A Pale Horse", p. 303).
These planners for the New World Order, writing over 200 years ago, were saying that the last step is for their speakers to create global problems of such perceived magnitude that it will seem as though the entire world has been turned upside down. We are seeing this occurring today, like never before. We have just celebrated that Pagan celebration, Earth Day, during which speaker after speaker arose to cry about such global problems which are turning humanity upside down, problems such as:
The process works like this:
The vegetarian campaign began in earnest in the mid-1970's and most Americans quickly rejected it. However, since the proposal was advocated by respected "experts", (scientists), step one was fulfilled. The public rejection of the idea fulfilled step 2. Subsequent articles and speeches fulfilled step 3 and 4. Remember, Step 4 is the key to changing people's attitudes. In the intervening 15 years of advocating vegetarianism, many people became rabidly supportive of the concept, and became their shock troops. Activists, such as Jeremy Rifkin, continued their relentless attack on eating beef. His campaign is now being reported by mainline news media.
NEWS BRIEF: Newsweek, April 6, 1992, and Time, April 20, 1992, reported on Jeremy Rifkin's new book, "Beyond Beef". Rifkin attacks the beef industry on many fronts:
For crying out loud, why, then, are Americans living healthier and longer lives, Mr. Rifkin? It makes you a little suspicious that the case against beef is contrived. But Rifkin continues his attack:
Of course, the beef industry attacks the book, saying that these described conditions just do not exist. But, Rifkin pushes on in his book to attack the beef industry on the environmental front. Rifkin alleges that cattle are severely damaging our fragile environment in several other ways:
However, many Americans will believe in this nonsense, because our educational system has turned out enough functionally-illiterate people who cannot think logically. They also do not possess enough elementary scientific knowledge to know how ridiculous these claims are. This is why the proponents of the New World Order felt, back in the 1930's, that they must seize control of the school system of the United States, and "dumb down" the curricula. Students being trained in the school system as it existed in the 1930's were thinking too logically and critically, and they possessed enough education so that the wool could not be pulled over their eyes. Unfortunately, the last two generations of American students are so illiterate and uninformed that they will not see these lies for what they really are. As one New Age writer said recently, "The sheep are about ready to be shorn".
Rifkin's book, "Beyond Beef", will be heavily promoted with TV commercials and other heavy media promotion. Step 5 of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan will occur: many people will stop being shocked by the proposal to ban beef. The stage will be set for Step 6, the partial banning of beef under certain circumstances. Such a partial ban will destroy the traditional beef industry, and will eventually lead to the complete eradication of beef consumption in the world. The world's population will thus take another step toward the Paganism of the New World Order -- vegetarianism.
Let us conclude with the last sentence of this mid-1700 Plan for implementing the New World Order. After describing how their speakers would convince the world that they faced such overwhelming problems that the only solution was the immediate implementation of their kingdom (now known as the New World Order), the writers concluded:
"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."
Notice the words, "stage-managed", "political plan", and "in the course of many centuries". Satan's Plan, the New World Order, is coming into its final stages, right before our eyes. And, now that you know what to look for, you can see it happening in your daily news!!!
