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.
"...Calculate the number of the beast, for it is a human number -- the number of a certain man; his number is 666." (Revelation 14:18b). Today, we will be following Jesus' commands in this passage, as we see how trained occultists calculate their numbers. Before we get started, you may want to get a pen and piece of paper to write down these facts and figures. Throughout this study, write down months as literal numbers. April should be calculated as 4, for example.
We will be utilizing three occultic books in this study: W. Westcott, The Occult Power Of Numbers; Elizabeth Van Buren, The Secret Of The Illuminati; and Frederick Goodman, Magic Symbols.
In August, 1990, President George Bush condemned the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq. He solemnly declared, "this invasion threatens the New World Order". This revelation was shocking because this term had been such a closely-held secret since 1776. We can only conclude that the Plan to bring about the New World Order must be close to fulfillment for its leaders to begin publicly announcing it. At this point in August, 1990, the world stood at the threshold of the door to the New World Order. How soon will the world actually walk through the New World Order door? To understand this critical question, we must understand how the occultist believes and thinks as it relates to the actual implementation of a Plan. Whenever an occultist contemplates an action, he will go to great lengths to determine the most propitious or advantageous time. He will consult the astrologer, Tarot cards, and various forms of divination. He literally believes the success or failure of a Plan lies as much in the correct timing as it does in any other factor. This process is called "divination". An occultist becomes fairly predictable once you understand his thinking patterns and belief structure.
This is one of our goals today, to understand how an occultist thinks when he is contemplating any particular action. We will then discuss the occultic original goals which the Masters of the Illuminati and our forefathers shared for the United States of America. Let us begin with the divination beliefs of occultists.
Divination is defined by Webster's New World Dictionary as "the practice of trying to foretell the future or the unknown by occult means." As we said earlier, no occultist will attempt any major action without first determining the most auspicious time in which to carry out this action. This effort to determine the correct time for an action is carried out to precise days and times. A good example is the suicide of Adolf Hitler. Hitler chose the date, April 30, 1945, because it was the first day of the Pagan Spring Holy Days. He chose 3:30p.m. because, according to occultic doctrine, this combination of three's presented to him the most favorable time to depart this life and reenter the reincarnation cycle. Note the triple 3's that are present here, April 30 as the first three, 3 o'clock in the afternoon as the second three, and 30 minutes past the hour as the final three. Hitler was engaging in typical occultic behavior by arranging the timing of his death in a very precise, numeric manner.
Why do occultists do this? All occultists worship nature and parts of nature, rather than the Creator Himself. The Apostle Paul stated this truth in Romans 1:25. Occultists not only worship the created being, they worship the gods of forces, in direct fulfillment of the prophecy in Daniel 11:38. Thus, occultists worship scientific knowledge, especially mathematics. They believe certain numbers possess magical powers; even more power can be released when these sacred numbers are used in certain combinations. One occultic writer, Westcott, stated, "Numbers are a key to the ancient views of cosmogony (the universe)...spiritually as well as physically...all systems of religious mysticism are based upon numbers". (p, 15). Further, occultists believe that "in Number lay secreted the key to the universe." (Van Buren, p. 42). Numbers are literally worshipped.
Let us begin with a quick study of the six numbers which occultists deem to be sacred, possessing great power individually and even greater power when used in combination. This belief in combining numbers involves two exercises. First, occultists will create new sacred numbers by multiplying or adding basic sacred numbers. Secondly, occultists will simply group sacred numbers together to create a new set of powerful numbers.
All this activity fulfills two purposes. First, great power is supposedly released when an occultist utilizes the correct sacred numbers in carrying out his planned action. Secondly, when a new number is created by either multiplication, addition, or simply by grouping sacred numbers, this new number becomes an occultic symbol, which informs the initiated occultist as to what is happening, while simultaneously hiding it from the uninitiated.
1. Three (3) is the first sacred number, the first perfect number (Westcott, p. 41). Three represents the Pagan Trinity." (Westcott, p. 37). It is represented geometrically in the triangle, and spiritually as the Third Eye Of Hinduism. Occultists will multiply and add three to other sacred numbers to create new numbers. However, they also group threes in two's and threes, because they believe in the principle of "intensification", i.e., that greater power is achieved when a sacred number is grouped. In the case of three, greater intensification is achieved when it is shown as 33, or 333. When Hitler committed suicide, he arranged the timing details so as to create a triple three (333). Can you see how 333 formed the framework for this momentous occasion? Of course, 333 + 333 equals 666. Occultists have used 333 as the hidden symbol by which they present the more offensive number 666. When the details of an event are so arranged as to contain certain sacred occultic numbers or numeric combinations, this is literally an occultic signature on the event. Only occultists will recognize this signature.
Finally, threes are arranged so as to represent 666 when they are shown in pairs. Mathematically, 666 can be created when three pairs of threes are added. Thus, (3+3) + (3+3) + (3+3) = 666. Now, eliminate the parentheses and the plus sign, and you have 33 space, 33 space, 33, representing the number 666. Remember this fact, for it will assume gigantic proportions in a few minutes.
2. Six (6) is the next sacred number, representing the number of the soul of man (Westcott, p. 66). This shows the omnipotent power of God, as this belief parallels Revelation 13:18, where God assigns 666 to man and to the ultimate sinful man, the beast. Six is also believed to be "all-sufficient". This parallels Biblical teaching, which states that man's great sin is pride in himself.
If six individually is considered powerful, then so is grouping it together as 66 or 666. However, occultists also take 666 and multiply the three numbers, achieving the number 216. Westcott explains, "according to the Pythagoreans, after a period of 216 years...all things are regenerated", including man. Each person's soul would be regenerated, or reborn precisely 216 years after his death. Remember this figure, because occultists assign many of the same characteristics to nations which they hold for individuals.
3. Seven (7) is a sacred number. Van Buren calls 7 "one of the most sacred of all the numbers...the Invisible Centre, the Spirit of everything". (p. 39) It is believed that 7 literally governs all aspects of the universe, from man's own body, to the bodies of the universe, and to spiritual matters. Since multiplication of seven creates an even more powerful sacred number, we should not be surprised that 3x7, or 21, is considered a most powerful number.
Thus, when Adam Weishaupt formed the Masters of the Illuminati, he arranged the timing of the event by arranging the numbers in a manner which would add to powerful numbers. He chose May 1, because May, month #5, added to the first day, equals 6. Weishaupt chose 1776, because the four numbers of this year add up to 21 (1+7+7+6 = 21). Further, the number 6 + 21 = 27, another number of power, because it is formed by the multiplication of 3x9. This date was very carefully chosen by Weishaupt; he believed the greatest Plan is doomed to failure if it is not carried out in the most numerically-advantageous time.
4. Nine (9) is sacred because it is the "first cube of an odd number (3)", (Van Buren, p.40-41). Nine also contains many unique mathematical properties, but time does not allow us to examine them.
Spiritually, nine is the number of "death to the self in order to be reborn in Spirit" (p. 41). This is the Satanic counterfeit to being "born-again".
Finally, the triple nine (999) is utilized to represent 666, because it is simply the inversion of 666.
5. Eleven (11) is a sacred number, even though it represents "...all that is sinful, harmful, and imperfect" (Wescott, p. 100). When eleven is multiplied by the perfect number 3, the number 33 is produced, a number of tremendous occultic importance. In 1933, Adolf Hitler and President Franklin Roosevelt came to power. Both these men were committed to the establishment of the New World Order, and their actions impacted humanity greatly. It was also in 1933 that the First Humanist Manifesto was issued. Do you see how Satan manipulated world history to produce three New World Order events in 1933? Thus, a powerful 333 served as a framework for world events in that year.
6. Thirteen (13) is deemed sacred because it is formed from the addition of 6 (man's soul number) and 7 (one of the perfect numbers). However, 13 is the number which God has assigned to Satan. I mentioned earlier that the Holy Days in the Pagan Spring calendar are April 30 and May 1. Now add the numbers which comprise these dates (4+3=7; 5+1=6; when you add 7 and 6 you get 13, Satan's number).
It was also no accident that Hitler chose the year 1939 to begin World War II, because 39 is formed by the multiplication of 13x3. Thus, you can see how human history has been shaped by the occultic belief in the power of numbers. There are so many examples that it would take a seminar setting to explore them in depth. However, I do want to examine the effect upon history that the belief in the power of 21 has produced. I will list those years in the Twentieth Century in which the addition of the numbers equals 21, and we will see how history has been shaped.
This was also the year in which British Prime Minister Chamberlain appeased Hitler in Munich, setting the stage for World War II. Chamberlain announced he had achieved "Peace in our time". (James Trager, The People's Chronology, p.936)
To further this "inevitable" evolution, occultic leaders in Europe and America in the late 1700's carried out the original Satanic plan conceived in the early 1590's between Queen Elizabeth I and Sir Francis Bacon, the idea of establishing a New Atlantis in the Seventh Continent of North America. Van Buren states this goal most clearly on page 143 of her book, The Secret of the Illuminati, "There is a secret and immutable destiny planned for mankind, one not recognized by or dreamt of by the mass of humanity. The northern continent of America had been decreed to be the land of a democratic commonwealth of states...before Columbus ever sailed to its shores." Occultic American leaders Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, planned to establish America as a New Atlantis. They hid this plan very cleverly by creating a framework of occultic numbers within the new symbols of the nation. Only fellow occultists recognized the truth.
Now let us examine the date of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. We have already shown how 1776 adds up to 21. But July 4 also comprises a sacred number. July is the Seventh month, which, when added to the Fourth day, equals 11.
As our Founding Forefathers planned for the creation of the New Atlantis, they decided to schedule the Declaration of Independence in relation to the first Pagan Spring High Holy Day, April 30. There are precisely 66 days between April 30 and July 4. The number 66 is a most important occultic sacred number for two critical reasons:
Sixty-six is important in God's reckoning also. Christian author, E.W. Bullinger states in his book, Number In Scripture, that the number 66 relates to the statue of Nebuchadnezzar; this statue was 60 cubits high and 6 cubits broad (p. 285). God arranged this event in such a way that the number 66 formed its framework. Bullinger concludes that the two sixes are connected with man's pride of "absolute dominion". This meaning is a perfect match with the establishment of the New World Order; when it is established, it will represent man's highest achievement in establishing absolute dominion over the earth. This statue is also a type of the final image of Anti-Christ, before which all people of the world will bow to worship, another perfect parallel to the plans of the New World Order.
The New Atlantis, the United States of America, was to be an enlightened representative democracy. America was to show the rest of the world the way to the ultimate New World Order. Let us allow Van Buren to describe the planned scenario for the New Atlantis. "The destiny of the United States was to be Atlantis... In all matters there are cycles of birth and decay; what was, will be again..."
Our Founding Fathers, lead by Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin, calculated that they should establish the United States of America precisely 66 days after the start of the Pagan holiday, April 30. Their vision was that America would become the New Atlantis and lead the rest of the world into the final form of government, the New World Order. This is why the Great Seal pyramid is unfinished; the system of Government they established was not the final form envisioned. But, for the purpose of this study, do you see how they planned the birth of America to be constructed on a framework of occultic numbers? Every trained occultist in the world understands this hidden meaning, but the untrained would miss it altogether.
This brings us to this year in world history. Even though America was established as the New Atlantis, she was designed to last only for a specified period of time. To symbolize this terrible end plan for America, our occult Founding Fathers secretly chose the Phoenix Bird of Egyptian Satanic Mysteries as their national symbol. The Phoenix Bird lives for hundreds of years, and then deliberately kills itself; its body immediately catches fire and is burned to a heap of ashes. But, immediately, a new Phoenix Bird arises out of the ashes to live again. America was established in 1776, a year that produced a '21', to begin her national life, at the conclusion of which she was to physically return to ashes. Out of these ashes the new Phoenix was to arise, producing the final form of government, the New World Order.
"We have arrived at a time when many an American, as a New Atlantean, is receiving the call...The time is short! Build your Ark and take in it as seed for the future age all that is worthy of a New World!! Take the dream of a Brotherhood of Man with you, for it was your country which took the first steps toward this ideal...Do not fear this, for out of the ashes of the New Atlantis will rise, in many parts of the world, a people who are conscious of their Oneness with Atlantis and America. They will help to create a democracy of world states under one government which will rule worldwide with Love and Wisdom." (p. 150).
These are sobering words, because Van Buren is predicting nothing less than the destruction of our system of government so that the New World Order could arise. Van Buren declares in this book, first published in 1982, that the time was near to go aboard the ark. Certainly, we have seen so many signs that the Plan to officially enter the New World Order is near. We have detailed many of these events on past programs, so we will not repeat ourselves here. Suffice it to say that the world is rushing to a One-World Government, Economy, and Religion as never before. Remember that our current leaders both Republican and Democrat, are equally committed to this New World Order; as such, their supreme allegiance is to the coming Kingdom of Antichrist, not to the United States of America. Do not be deceived on this point.
I believe the world stands at the crossroads.
Today, Israel stands at the precipice of her war with her Arab neighbors, a situation that seems like it will fulfill the Satanic vision of 1870, which foresaw the need to wage three World Wars to stage Antichrist. This demonic vision foresaw that the Third World War would start between Israel and her immediate Arab neighbors. Out of the dust, smoke and ashes of this world war, Antichrist would come striding.
Numerous New World Order authors have stated that the time period immediately preceding its actual implementation would contain the events found in Matthew 24:
Further, the New World Order Plan envisions such total global panic that the peoples of the world will be stampeded into accepting the loss of their democratic government, and their freedoms in exchange for a "promise" for a return to normalcy. New Age author Bill Cooper tells us what this total package of events will be like, in his book, "Behold A Pale Horse".
"… a very short but very deadly global war using nuclear weapons upon select population concentrations was contemplated, and … was not ruled out … Can you imagine what will happen if Los Angeles is hit with a 9.0 quake, New York City is destroyed by a terrorist-planted atomic bomb, World War III breaks out in the Middle
East, the banks and the stock markets collapse, Extraterrestrials land on the White House lawn, food disappears from the markets, some people disappear, the Messiah presents himself to the world, and all in a very short period of time?" [P. 177]
THIS is the New World Order Plan, and its fulfillment has never seemed more likely, and more real. This moment in history seems the most logical time to try to usher in the New World Order. The only question is whether God will allow it to occur. We must be alert, cautious, and active for Jesus Christ, more now than ever before.
