Why is this so important?



Many have stated that it is impossible to know whether or not we are living in the last days before the second coming of Jesus Christ. However, below you will find dramatic proof that this is the last times. All of the proofs below taken together defy coincidence. 1. EUPHRATES RIVER TO BE DRIED UP: In Revelation 16:12, the Bible predicts that the Euphrates River will be dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the east to invade Israel. This will happen at the time of the battle of Armageddon according to verse 16 of the same chapter. The battle of Armageddon will be the final battle at which time Jesus Christ will return and fight on the side of the nation of Israel. Immediately thereafter He will establish His kingdom and usher in His 1000-year reign of peace. On January 13th, 1990, the Indianapolis Star carried the headline Turkey will cut off flow of Euphrates for 1 month. The article stated that a huge reservoir had been built by Turkey. While filling up the reservoir, the flow of the Euphrates would be stopped for one month and a concrete plug for a diversion channel built. These things have now been done. With this newly built dam, Turkey has the ability to stop the Euphrates River at will. The conditions for fulfilling this 1900 year old prophecy are now in place! 2. CHINA GOES TO WAR: In Revelation 9:1516, the Bible prophesies that an army of 200 million soldiers will launch a war which will kill the third part of men. Never in the history of the world, until our present generation, has there been a power on earth that could field 200 million soldiers. However, the late ruler of China, Mao Tsetung boasted in his diary that he could field an army of 200 million. We see that this prophecy pertaining to the very last times could not ever have been fulfilled until now.

3. WORLDWIDE NUMBERING SYSTEM PREDICTED: In Revelation chapter 13, the Bible prophesies that a world dictator will soon rule over a world government. He will cause all people on the earth to receive a number without which they will be unable to buy or sell. We are seeing this prophecy fulfilled before our eyes in a most astonishing way. Nearly every human being in the world now has been assigned a number. In America it is our social security number. In the last few years we have seen this number extended to small children. A child without a social security number cannot be declared as a dependent on an income tax return. We have seen the emergence of electronic money, shopping with credit cards, and many people are urging the abolishment of cash. All of these things could not possibly have been fulfilled until this present time. Only after the invention of the computer could such a worldwide numbering system be administered. 4. THE EMERGENCE OF A NEW WORLD ORDER: Revelation 13:7 and Daniel 7:23 prophesy the establishment of a world government. We recently have seen the term new world order being used by the leading political people of our world. Mikhail Gorbachev has made the term famous, and Pope John Paul II has referred to it repeatedly. Finally our former President, George Bush, in the Chicago Tribune, September 12, 1990, said Iraq is the first test for the new world order. He stated emphatically that the Iraq War is Saddam Hussein against the world. The United Nations troops are continually referred to as the multi-national forces. The decision has been made to establish an interdependent community of nations that will rule the world under United Nations authority. The Bible says that this will lead us into a great world government. We can see this happening right before our eyes. COINCIDENCE OR DIVINE PROVIDENCE? The Euphrates River can be dried up, the necessary 200 million man army is available, a worldwide numbering system is possible because of the computer, and now the new world order is appearing. Is it coincidental that all of these major prophecies pertaining to the last times are being fulfilled simultaneously? Hardly!

EDITORIAL 4 Political Earthquake

presenting world events from a biblical perspective

Ehud Barak swept into power 20 months ago by a record 12 percent margin. But opposition leader Ariel Sharon crushed him by 25 percent. What made the Israeli electorate shift a massive 37 points in only 20 months? It was nothing short of a political earthquake.

COVER STORY 8 Will Bush Move the Embassy to Jerusalem?

President Bush promised to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, thus recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital. The UN has refused since the birth of the modern State of Israel to acknowledge Israels right to Jerusalem. According to Bible prophecy, this decision may be the most important one that George W. Bush will make during his presidency. This article explains why that is true. Page 4

Has the China Threat Gone Away?

The top military leader in China recently stated that there would be war between China and the United States within five years. Is this idle prattle or are we headed straight into the teeth of the most horrible prophetic fulfillment of the endtime?

On the surface the article seemed innocent enoughhow to bring your children up spiritually. The millions who read it, however, were in actuality staring into the face of the thinking of the prophesied one-world religion of the False Prophet.

Political Earthquake

n the past month, we have witnessed a quantum shift in the power structures of our world. This shift will affect the future of the world and will lead directly to the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Bible. The most powerful nation on earth, the United States, just experienced, if promises can be believed, a radical change in direction. Bill Clinton was such an advocate for world government that he was given the M A G A Z I N E S TA F F










Charlemagne Award. He also called for the establishment of a world court system in his speech before the United Nations General Assembly in September of 1997. That vision is now ominously close to realization. On the other hand, President George W. Bush promised that, under his administration, not one U.S. citizen would serve under a UN commander. He also favors bringing our soldiers home from the far-flung engagements in which they are deployed on behalf of the World Community. At the same time the United States was doing its about-face, the center for endtime prophetic fulfillment, Israel, underwent a 180-degree change of direction. In the spring of 1999, Israelis voted for liberal Ehud Barak and the peace process by a record margin. His victory over Benjamin Netanyahu was by an unprecedented 12 percent. Twenty months later, the conservative opponent of the Oslo Peace Accords, Ariel Sharon, defeated Barak by an incredible 25 percent margin! This is an amazing 37 percent swing in the Israeli electorate within a mere 20 months. Sharons victory cannot be described as a landslide. It must be viewed as a shocking political EARTHQUAKE! But what is the cause behind this sudden reversal in the nations direction? Since the signing of the Oslo Accords on September 13, 1993, many Israelis had believed that peace was possible with Yasser Arafat and the Palestinians. They chose to ignore the fact that Arafat, five days after signing the Oslo Agreement, made a speech in Johannesburg, South Africa, in which he said he had only made peace temporarily

Irvin Baxter Jr., Endtime Editor

in order to prepare for future struggle against Israel. They closed their eyes to maps used by the Palestinians that showed the Middle East without the nation of Israel depicted at all. When terrorist bombers killed Israelis and then were eulogized as martyrs by Arafat, Israelis kept believinghopingin the peace process. But then came the straw that broke the camels back. On July 11, 2000, President Clinton convened a summit at Camp David with Ehud Barak and Yasser Arafat. Expectations were high. The summit ground on for two weeks. The news was that a comprehensive peace agreement was within reach. On July 25th, the talks broke down. Once reports began to be published about what went on at Camp David, Israelis were shocked. Barak had offered to return 100 percent of the territory captured in the 1967 War, to re-divide Jerusalem and to permanently surrender sovereignty over the Temple Mount.

Israelis were finding it hard to believe that an Israeli Prime Minister had been willing to give away the holiest site in Israelthe place of the First and Second Temples and the place where Jehovah God said that He would put His name. But the thing that brought on the massive shift in Israeli public opinion was not that Barak offered more than almost anyone thought any Israeli Prime Minister ever would. It was the fact that Yasser Arafat turned it down! Arafat steadfastly demanded the right for five million Palestinians to return to homes within Israels pre-1967 borders. When Arafat turned down the best peace offer he can ever hope to get, and demanded what could only be delivered by the annihilation of the nation of Israel, Israelis realized that Arafats speech in Johannesburg was not propaganda. It was what Arafat really intended. He would never make peace as long as the nation of Israel existed in the Middle East. As this realization dawned on Israelis, the violence they had received in return for the best peace offer they had ever presented to the Palestinians started to make sense to them. It also drove them to the obvious conclusion: We dont need a peacemaker for a leader, since we dont have anyone to make peace with. We need a leader of strength that knows how to impose peace on an unwilling enemy. Thus the sweeping electoral victory of new Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

Sharons visit to the Temple Mount, marked the turning point, in Israel, from appeasement to an affirming of Jewish sovereignty here.

Prophetic implications
Prophecy students have believed for years that the confirmation of the covenant would be some kind of peace deal struck between Palestinians and Israelis. The puzzling thing about this theory is that the conflict obviously continues in the West Bank (Judea) during the three and one-half years of the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:15-21). This conflict ultimately escalates into the Battle of Armageddon at the end of the final three and one-half years. This being true, it makes us think that a peace will never be concluded between Israel and the Palestinians. Perhaps the confirming of the covenant is international acceptance of the unilateral separation that Israel may be forced to impose because of Yasser Arafats intransigence. Could it be that while Sharon imposes

unilateral separation on the Palestinians, Sharons Foreign Minister Shimon Peres will win the recognition and the approval of the International Community for these actions? This would also explain why the International Community still is a factor three and one-half years after the confirmation of the covenant. Scripture states that the dominant international leader at that time, the Antichrist, will stand in the rebuilt Jewish temple claiming sovereignty there. We cannot conclude with absolute

certainty the course that events in the Middle East will take. However things come down, we do know the Temple Mount will be shared between Jew and Gentile, Israel will build her temple, the Antichrist will stand in the rebuilt temple claiming to be God, great tribulation will rage throughout Judea (the West Bank) and the United Nations will finally invade Israel for the Battle of Armageddon. Though we dont know how we get from here to there, it does promise to be a wild ride! So hang on!

What is Endtime Magazine?

In 1968, Irvin Baxter Jr. discovered the United States and other modern nations in the Bible. He also found the Berlin Wall in the Bible and that one day it was to be torn down, reuniting Germany, and that event would be the catalyst to spark an international movement called the "New World Order." These things have now come to pass. Irvin Baxter Jr., a Pentecostal minister, began Endtime Ministries in 1986 when he wrote A Message For The President, a book explaining the major prophecies of the Bible which he had been teaching since 1968. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, prophetic fulfillment accelerated rapidly. The decision was made to launch Endtime. The purpose of the magazine is to explain the prophecies of the Bible and to show that they are now being fulfilled in intricate detail. Articles focus on the soon return of Jesus Christ, the truth of the Bible, and the need for salvation. Endtime does not deal with doctrinal controversies, as valid as they may be. This will be left to other publications. STATEMENT OF FAITH: We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and that He will come again to establish a kingdom that shall never be destroyed (Daniel 2:44). Those who are born again (John 3:3-5) will have eternal life and rule as kings and priests with Christ forever.

Courtesey of The New York Post

Letters to Endtime
Have Communists Always Led World Army?
I dont know if I heard this on your broadcast, but I recall some sliver of information somewhere that every person who has ever been in charge of the United Nations armed forces (whatever its fancy name is) has been a socialist/communist. Do you know if this is true? And if so, is this some sort of requirement in the UNs Constitution? Thank you, and keep up the good work. C. Meyer Reply: It is true that communists have always controlled the armed forces of the UN. This special arrangement was made when the United Nations was originally set up. The first Secretary General of the UN, Trygve Lie, stated that this understanding was verbally agreed to by the Soviet Union and the United States. This information was disclosed in Lies book, In the Cause of Peace. Jesus is my Savior, I shall not be moved! J. Reynolds Indiana Reply: I dont believe the Man of Sin knows that he is the Antichrist. I doubt that he will ever acknowledge who he is. It is much more likely that he will see himself as the Messiah. Scripture tells us that he will end up claiming to be God. The reason he will be so skillful at leading people into deception is because he will be so thoroughly deceived himself.

And more earthquakes

How many earthquakes do you see happening in the endtime? It says in Revelation 11:13 that within an hour of the return of life to the witnesses, there is a great earthquake that knocks down a tenth of the city. That is not part of the Battle, is it? In verse 15 it says the 7th angel sounded and (at that moment?) the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord. Verse 18 then says, thou should give reward unto thy servants... Does that happen during the end of the tribulation? Because verse 19 says that there were lightings, voices, thunderings, and earthquake and great hail. Which one of these earthquakes is the same one spoken of by Christ in Matthew 24? Charley

Who Holds the Keys to World Government?

Who in the future will hold the keys to the one-world government. Is it the European Union, the United Nations or Russia? In one article you said the UN, but in another Russia. Jason Reply: Right now, the United States is probably the dominant influence in the activities of the World Community. However, prophecy seems to indicate that the center of power will swing to Russia and the European Union in the near future. We know this because Great Britain and Russia are represented in the last day world government of the Antichrist as it is depicted in Revelation 13:1-2. Notice that the combined beast in this passage has the mouth of the lion, which is the symbol of Great Britain, and the feet of the bear, which is the symbol of Russia. Furthermore, Ezekiel 38 specifically indicates that Russia will lead the nations of the world in the invasion of Israel at the time of the Battle of Armageddon. The global power structure of Revelation 13 will definitely work through the structures of the United Nations. (For a complete understanding of modern nations and their role in the endtime world government, see Understanding the EndtimeLevel 1.)

Reply: Though earthquakes in different places is one of the signs of the endtime, the earthquake to which you refer happens immediately after the tribulation of those days (Matthew 24:29). This is the same earthquake referred to at the 7th Trumpet, at the Battle of Armageddon and at the Second Coming when the Mount of Olives will split in two.

Kurdish Friends Verify Meaning of Saddam

Ive heard you say on the radio more than once that Saddam means destroyer. How do you know this? Did you simply look it up in an English-Arabic dictionary? Did someone tell you this? I am guessing his name is Arabic since thats what he speaks, according to a Kurdish family we know well who fled Iraq and Hussein in 1993. We also know from our Kurdish friends that people in that country do indeed name their children for things. Some of their children are named Jiyan (life), Raveen (running), Delsosh (heart pain), and Herman (we stay in tents)all based on what was happening to them at the time.

Will the Antichrist know he is the Antichrist?

No one knows who the Antichrist is going to be, but does he know now? Will he know when he assumes this role? Your entire staff is in my prayers.



If Saddam indeed means destroyer, that is significant because of what is in the Bible, especially about the last years of this age. I am careful to be sure my information is accurate, so that is why Im asking you. I am also going to ask my Kurdish friends, who speak a little bit of Arabic, if they know what Saddam means. I enjoy your show. Im learning a lot, and I dont just take your word for it. You have sent me to the Bible often. Its absolutely fascinating, isnt it? And doesnt it put you more in awe of this amazing, wonderful God and His Son every time you read it? Lauri M. Plano, Texas Follow-up from Lauri: My Kurdish friends said Yes, yes! when I told them that I heard that Saddam means destroyer in Arabic. Reply: We already had absolute confirmation, but its always good to acquire additional proof on these important points. Thanks so much for the information.

I am looking for a scriptural cap on time so that we dont wait forever for something that will not happen for another hundred years or ever. I am not satisfied to be led on and on without some hope of relief. Alan Reply: I may not be able to give you the time-frame for which you are asking. However, we have many signs today that we have never had before, which indicate that we are very close to the Second Coming of Jesus. Let me list a few prophetic fulfillments concerning the endtime that are coming to pass today, but could not have been fulfilled just ten years ago: A cashless society was impossible until the invention of the computer and the advent of the Internet; The drying up of the Euphrates River became possible as of January 13, 1990; A possible army of 200 million soldiers has only existed as of the year 2000 according to the CIA Fact Book of 1999; The birth of the United Religions on June 26, 2000. Other prophetic fulfillments that have only occurred during the last generation are: The rebirth of the nation of Israel; The fall of the Berlin Wall; And the creation of a world governmental systemthe United Nations. There are many more evidences that we are the generation that shall not pass until all things be fulfilled. These are some of the amazing prophetic fulfillments that make me believe Jesus will return to earth during my generation.

Cashless Society?
I hear on your program and others about the cashless society that will be in place when the Anti-Christ comes on the scene. I do not see this in the Bible anywhere. I believe it is just assumed. Does the Bible allow for the possibility that we will still have cash as we have now, but the mark will be used to verify a persons identity? G. Monyok Reply: The scripture that implies a cashless society is Revelation 13:16-17, And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Since a credit card number or a Personal Identification Number has been required for cashless transactions, many have assumed that the entire worlds system will become cashless during the time of the Antichrist. However, it may be possible that some cash transactions could still take place. It is hard to control economic activity when cash is available. If we were in a totally cashless society, then every transaction could be monitored and either allowed or rejected. That appears to be the kind of a society that will exist during the time of the Great Tribulation.

Why Patti supports Endtime

My husband and I feel that since we are living in the Endtimes, we must be more selective than ever in choosing which ministries and charities to support. We, of course, give our tithes and offerings to our church, and directly support our families and some missionaries. Our top priority, after these, is to use Gods gifts to effectively and efficiently spread the gospel of Christ to the world. That is why we support Endtime Ministries. We, ourselves, have learned so much about the Bible and current events from a biblical perspective from Endtime, which is reason enough to support this ministry. However, the very essence of the Endtime ministry is reaching the world for Christ, and this is what its all about. We thank the Lord for the privilege of supporting you. Patti

Dont want to wait forever

In what window of time must the peace deal, the Antichrist, the war with China, etc. take place in order for the Bible to be true? For instance, if Israel is destroyed by an earthquake, is the Bible rendered fallible and worthless? If no peace deal is made in fifty years, is the Bible to be discarded?

Will Bush Move Embassy to Jerusalem?

Or was this another read my lips? And why is it important?
by Irvin Baxter Jr.

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces... Zechariah 12:2-3

E-mail:, Website:

hen the United Nations partitioned the Holy Land between Israelis and Palestinians in 1947, the ownership of Jerusalem was so hotly contested that the city was given special status. The UN decided to declare Jerusalem an international city under United Nations control. Israel didnt like this arrangement, of course, since Jerusalem had always been her capital. However, Israel so desperately wanted to be re-established as a nation after 2,000 years of exile that she decided to take what she could get. She accepted the UN plan. On the other hand, the Arabs adamantly refused to even consider the partition plan. They insisted that Jews needed to be driven out of the Middle East altogether. The UN plan was implemented on May 14, 1948. All of Israels Arab neighbors launched a war against the new-born state the very next day. To everyones amazement, the tiny nation of Israel, with a population of 600,000, defeated the Arab armies, which represented 42 million people. When the cease-fire lines were finally drawn in 1949, Israel controlled West Jerusalem, and the nation of Jordan occupied East Jerusalem, which includes the Temple Mount the coveted site of the ancient holy places. In 1950, Jerusalem became the capital of the State of Israel. This status of Jerusalem was maintained until the 1967 War when Israel captured the entirety of the city and the territory all the way to the Jordan River. Shortly after this war, Israel declared Jerusalem the eternal, undivided capital of the State of Israel. The UN, however, still harbors dreams of a Jerusalem under UN control. Consequently, Israel is the only nation on earth whose capital the UN refuses to recognize. The resistance of the United Nations against Jerusalem as Israels capital has been so strong that every nation in the world, except for two, has refused to place its embassy there. They all put their embassies in Tel Aviv. The two na-

During his election campaign, George W. Bush promised to move the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, shown above, to Jerusalem the day of his inauguration.That day has now come and gone. In June, however, the issue will resurface. Bush will then have to decide whether he will fulfill his pledge to enforce the Jerusalem Embassy Act passed by the U.S. Congress in 1995.

tions that have placed their embassies in Jerusalem are Costa Rica and El Salvador. Those who oppose moving the embassy have said that the United States would lose its role as an impartial mediator in the Middle East if this action were taken. However, it should be noted that the planned site for the U.S. Embassy is in West Jerusalem, not East Jerusalem. So the issue that has kept our embassy in Tel Aviv since 1950 is not whether Israel should return East Jerusalem to the Palestinians. It is whether Israel has a right to be in Jerusalem at all! Again, the UNs claim to jurisdiction over Jerusalem as an international city rears its ugly head. The issue is simply thisdoes Israel have a right to be in Jerusalem at all

or should it be surrendered to the control of the United Nations. It has long been a puzzlement to Americans and Israelis alike why the United States claims to be Israels best friend and yet refuses to recognize her capital. The answer is simple. The U.S. has followed this course in deference to the UN.

The Jerusalem Embassy Act

During the 90s, sentiment began to build in the United States toward recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In 1995, the U.S. Congress passed a law, the Jerusalem Embassy Act. This law states that the United States Embassy in Israel had to be moved to Jerusalem by no later than May 31, 1999. The Jerusalem Embassy Act also stated that

AP WideWorld Photo/Koko

will bush move embassy to jerusalem?

Jerusalem should remain permanently united. The Senate vote for this law was 95-5 and the vote in the House of Representatives was 374 to 37. In 1992, Bill Clinton promised to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, but he never acted on the promise. Thats what motivated Congress to require the move by law. Congress made the mistake, however, of creating a loophole for the President. It was called the Presidential Waiver. This loophole stated that the requirements of the Jerusalem Embassy Act could be suspended for a period of six months if the President determined and reported to Congress in advance that such suspension is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States. President Clinton chose to use this waiver when the May 31, 1999 deadline rolled around. He contended that moving the embassy during sensitive peace negotiations would upset everything. Thus, he concluded that it was not in the national security interests of the U.S. to execute the move. Clinton continued to use this argument each six-months until the end of his presidency.

June 2001the date to watch

When asked recently about Bushs promise to move the embassy, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said, President George W. Bush is sticking by his campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but the time hasnt been right. During his election campaign, Bush had emphatically promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem the day of my inauguration. Apparently, cooler, wiser heads have now tempered Bushs enthusiasm for the move. However, the moment of truth is just around the corner. In June of this year, President George W. Bush will face a big decision. Will he follow in the footsteps of Bill Clinton, or will he enforce the law of the United States of America? We dont have long to wait before we see if Bush meant what he said about moving the embassy or if this is just another read my lips, no new taxes deception.

Read my lips. No new taxes. This unfulfilled promise by the senior Bush led to his downfall.

Why is this so important?

Three thousand years ago, God promised Israels King David and his son

Solomon, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever (I Kings 11:36). Since God declared that Jerusalem was to be the capital of Israel and the place that He chose to place His name, the United Nations finds itself in a very precarious position. By opposing Israeli control over Jerusalem, the UN is literally fighting against God Himself. The Bible prophesies that this dispute over Jerusalem will ultimately result in the UNs invasion of Israel. Zechariah 14:1-4 describes this invasion: For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle This invasion by

the World Community will trigger the final battle called Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to the earth. The 38th chapter of Ezekiel describes Armageddon. In verse 18 it states, And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. To oppose Jerusalem as the capital of the nation of Israel is to incur the wrath of God. Not only will we be watching as President Bush makes his decision concerning recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital, but Almighty God Himself will also be watchingvery closely.

Final Draft on Fiction Book Complete
Its been two years in the oven, but Irvin Baxter has finally put the finishing touches on his prophecy fiction book. Preliminary word from his most vicious critics here at the ministry say the book is outrageously excellent. Fast read, gripping and special bonus, biblically plausible. Title? Still undecided. Due out? Probably August, but no guarantees. We are still working on that with the publisher. Before the book is released, we hope to print an excerpt from it in the magazine.

plained to us the significant tax advantage he would receive by doing this. We are now set up to handle this type of tax-deductible donation. If you have ever entertained the thought of making a donation to Endtime Ministries and own stock, the following may be of some interest. Stock sales means capital gains. Capital gains mean taxes. If, however, you donate stock, you receive full market value credit to write off on your taxes while avoiding all capital gains. Heres an example. If you bought one share of a stock at $10, but it is now at $50 and you decide to liquidate it, you would pay capital gains tax on $40. If you donate the share instead to a ministry such as Endtime before liquidating, you would be allowed to write off the entire $50 market value. When the non-profit corporation to whom you donated sells the share, no tax is paid. Everyone wins. For more information, call 1-800Endtime and ask for Nicky.

President George Bush had made about the Gulf War. He said, Iraq is the first test of the New World Order. The role that the Iraq crisis is playing, wrote Baxter ten years ago, is an increasing acceptance of the United Nations as a world government. And have we ever come a long way since then!

Exclusive Interview

Who Is Ariel Sharon?

Through the Eyes of His Personal Journalist, Uri Dan

wenty years ago, Uri Dan, a noted columnist for the Maariv Daily, Jerusalem Post, and New York Post stated that if Israel didnt want Ariel Sharon as Defense Minister, then one day they would get him as Prime Minister. This has now come to pass. Dan has been Sharons personal journalist and close friend for the past 40 years. He has been by his side for virtually every major event in this mans extensive and heroic military and political career. Endtime recently interviewed Uri Dan by phone from his home in Jerusalem. Uri: Ha yad vrabenu! Baxter: Shalom! What does that mean? Uri: It means The Temple Mount is in our hands! This has been the historical and religious center and focus of the Jewish people from the beginning. In 1967, when the Jewish army liberated Jerusalem and took control of it from the Jordanians, the commander reported back to headquarters. He said, Temple Mount is in our hands. After 2,000 years, Jews came back to the center of their belief and of their history. So when I answer the phone, Ha

Endtime recently interviewed Uri Dan, Ariel Sharon's personal journalist for the last 40 years.

yad vrabenu! I say it with a lot of sentiment and feeling. We nearly lost the Temple Mount under the previous government. For the first time in the history

of Israel and since 1967, an Israeli government was ready to negotiate the Temple Mount and give it away to foreigners! This was a regretful move done

by Prime Minister Ehud Barak, who put up the idea of giving it away to the control of the Muslims the Palestinians. During the Camp David SummitI covered that SummitI was shocked to learn that. It would have gone under a special regime through which Yasser Arafat would have the control over this site. Baxter: You know, Uri, I too was shocked when I read that. I follow those things every day and have a very fond attachment for the people of Israel. I understand fully that the Temple Mount is the center of Jewish life. Can you even go today to the Temple Mount? Uri: No. There are only certain places Jews can goto the Western Wall and the Rabbinical Tunnel where one can observe the remains of the temple that was destroyed some 2,000 years ago. The situation is delicate. Barak put the Temple Mount on the negotiating table without even discussing it with his cabinet! And he was negotiating it secretly. This is what brought his downfall. I am sorry for him. I know him personally. But I am more sorry for our people who had to come to the point where their government was bargaining away the future of their holiest site with foreigners as if it were a piece of real estate. Baxter: Up until five months ago, Jews and non-Muslims could go onto the Temple Mount. However, since the Al Aqsa Intifada broke out, they have totally closed it. Now only Muslims are allowed to go there. When Sharon forms his government and takes the reins as Prime Minister, will he reverse this situation? Uri: We should wait and see how Ariel Sharon will act when it comes to the Temple Mount. I will not make any prejudgments. Right now Im writing a book about it. Sharons visit to the Temple Mount on September 28th began a sequence of events that, not only brought him to the top of the Temple Mount, but to the top of the pyramid of the leadership of Israel. There was a countdown of 130 days. I kept a diary of every event. The book will be Temple Mount in Our Hands, Part Two. Sharon challenged Baraks policies by going

there and he launched a sequence of events, which brought down Barak and brought up Sharon. One cannot turn his head from those bare facts, whether you are religious or not religious. Baxter: How religious is Ariel Sharon? Uri: I have been with him at so many events. Ariel Sharon always says, when he talks to Jews and non-Jews alike, First of all, I am a Jew. He underlines it, representing the spirit and tradition of the Jews being proud to be a Jew. He believes, and rightly so, in reestablishing the Jewish state and the Jewish spirit and tradition. After an exile of 2,000 years, one should keep that notion and underline it. Baxter: When Ariel Sharon went onto the Temple Mount on September 28th, he was apparently making a statement that Jewish people should be allowed to be there. So it seems to me, once he takes power he is going to open it back up for Jewish people and other people to go onto the Mount. Is that a fair assumption?

Uri: I will not go to any assumptions. As a journalist, as a writer, as someone who has been following for many years the important events in this country and all over the world, and being Jewish myself, I am very attached to the drama through which we are living while trying to defend the Jewish state. I have been privileged to be beside Ariel Sharon during many critical momentsincluding the Yom Kippur War at the Suez Canal where he turned defeat into victory. I was with him in the 50s when Sharon, as a lieutenant, called the commander of the paratroopers to advise him on how to fight Palestinian terrorism even back then. Baxter: We are so interested when we think of whats ahead for the nation of Israel. Many of us love Israel very much. Uri: Thank you. Baxter: We are anxious to know the direction this government will take. Most people think that there will have to be a unilateral separation before there can be any security at all. Would you

agree with that assessment? Uri: It is very hard to separate, or create any separation. For example, Jews are living in Jerusalem, the united capital of Israel. Arabs, Palestinians are also living there. I will not commit myself to any miraculous solution. When Mr. Barak defeated Mr. Netanyahu, he tried to take these paths, but he never carried it out. He was looking for a solution to end the conflict. He wanted to give Arafat most of East Jerusalem except for the Jewish Quarter and some other little parts of the Old City among the walls. He was going to give the Temple Mount to a third party so Arafat would indirectly get official control of it. In response, Barak got a war!terror, bombs, shooting and killing, just like is happening today near Jerusalem by the Palestinians and organized by Yasser Arafat. It is unbelievable what has been going on for the last five months! I covered the Camp David Summit. For two weeks President Clinton was trying to broker a deal between Barak and Arafat. Barak came with all those concessions. I had to report about it to Israeli newspapers, and to the New York Post. I couldnt believe the reports in the beginning. It was a very tightly kept top secret. Some of his ministers didnt even know. And nobody would admit officially what they really offered. Surely, I thought, he is not committing himself to giving away the most sacred place for the Jews, the Temple Mount. It was hard for me to report this to my papers. Ariel Sharon, head of the opposition Likud Party, challenged this policy of secrecy, of deceit, by going to the Temple Mount to tell all the world that Israel is sovereign over the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount is in our hands! Baxter: Back in 1981-82 when Ariel Sharon was ousted from the Defense Ministry over the Sabra and Shatilla massacre, at that time you made an interesting statement: If you dont want Ariel Sharon as Defense Minister, someday you will get him as Prime Minister. What prompted you to say that? Uri: Ill tell you. I worked as an advisor to Ariel Sharon in the Defense Ministry. I had been with him during all the wars

Responsibility for the massacres at Sabra and Shatilla by Lebanese Christian Arabs fell on Sharon.

of salvation for Israel, through which Yasser Arafat and 10,000 of his terrorists were expelled from Beirut. So I had seen then what kind of evil had been done to the State of Israel and to Sharon himself when they attached to him that horrible blood libel accusation over the tragedy in Sabra and Shatilla. This was where Lebanese Christian Arabs killed Muslim Arabsthe Palestinians. Remember, we came to Lebanon to save Israel from the terrorism of Yasser Arafat, and at the same time, as a byproduct, to help the Lebanese Christians there. Regretfully, the atrocities were painful. But then because of political rivalry and jealousy in Israel, a lynch atmosphere was created causing Sharon to ultimately resign from the Defense Ministry. A certain correspondent from the New York Times used to call me from time to time to ask me what was going on here in the war or other affairs. I always told him, Here is the report; you can use it, but never mention my name. But once I saw what was happening to Sharon because of that public, political lynch campaign, I said to the reporter, Can you do me a favor? Publish tomorrow in the New York Times, quoting me this time, the follow-

ing: I said back in 1973 that those who didnt want Sharon as commander of the armed forces in Israel will one day have him as Defense Minister. Now I say, those who will not accept him as Defense Minister, in due time, will have him as Prime Minister. I was sure about it. And it was published. I couldnt count on the mostly liberal, leftist press in Israel. Baxter: Were you with Sharon in Lebanon when all of this came down? Uri: Yes. Absolutely. Baxter: Did he know the massacre was happening or was this totally done without his knowledge? Uri: Totally without his knowledge. He was shocked when he heard about it. He was saddenedaggravated completely. He didnt know anything. I stood beside him. He sued Time magazine in the United States for libel. Time had decided that Sharon instigated this horrible tragedy. I helped him voluntarily during 23 months of legal battles, 4-5 months of it in New York in Federal Court. An ordinary American jury found for Sharon,

that he was libeled and that Time was guilty of defamation of character. Time knowingly published a lie about him. It was reckless reporting. This was the greatest victory for truth. Baxter: It was quite a shocking thing for Barak to win the Prime Ministry by 12% in the spring of 1999, which was at that time a record margin. Then, a mere 20 months later, the electorate swings and Barak loses by 25%, twice the record margin he had won by. It was like a huge swinging of a pendulum! Something dramatic must have happened to cause this huge shift in the electorate in Israel. What was it? Uri: It was not only a landslide. It was an earthquake. And the earthquake went into the heart of the Jews in this country. I am speaking about the Jews, because most of the Israeli Arabs boycotted the election. Many Jews felt that their national security and personal security was in very serious danger. They had been led to believe that peace was at hand for more than 7 years, especially under Barak, who had been working overtime with his illusionist Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben Ami and the Minister of Justice Yossi Beilin. They told the people all the time, Peace is at hand. But then suddenly, instead, they get war, daily terrorism and killing by the Palestinians, like the exploding in Hadera, Natanya, in Jerusalem, shooting on the roads So therefore, the Jews turned to someone who they believed they could count on. This is the meaning of this historical vote. We count on you, Ariel Sharon. Yes, we know that you were slandered. We know what the opposition and jealous politicians were doing to you. We want you. We dont trust them anymore. When I said so many years ago that, if you dont want Ariel Sharon as Defense Minister, you will eventually get him as Prime Minister, I knew that Ariel Sharon is, first and foremost, a born leader. I was with him on the battlefield where a person comes up in the brightest and most cruel lightthe light of bombs, of shells, of fire. You have to defend your people. There I have seen him, 26 years old, commander of the paratroopers, and later at 45 years old crossing the Suez Canal in the Yom Kippur War. He be-

And then heres this young manI was with him in the same armored personnel carrier day and night from the 6th of October on, when we left Beersheba to go to the canal. Thats where he turned defeat into victory. And I saw this unbelievable leader of the Jews being treated so maliciously in 1983. When he was removed from the Defense Ministry, I knew, regretfully, that the situation in Israel would deteriorate to such a point, like where we are now. The situation would create the need for a man like Sharon. Thank God he is still around. Baxter: This is a time somewhat like 1973 when Israel was teetering on the brink of defeat because of some very bad policies and bad judgments. Uri: Absolutely. Sharon was a Reserve General Commander of a reserve armored division. I was with him in his military apartment in Beersheba just before we went to the front. Lilly, his late,

loving wife, was going around very calmly away from his eyes, because hers were full of tears. She knew he was going to the front line. His two boys were still small, playing around, not understanding what was going on. Their father was going to fight and to defend the Jews in a terrible war. I asked him before we left his kitchenit was 7pm on Yom Kippur 1973, Ariel, where are we heading to? He said, Do you have any question about where this war will be finished? Only on the other side of the canal. I shiver when I remember those words. I remember the next two weeks of the terrible battle before crossing the canal, and then after. I have seen himhow he treats his soldiers with such care. He is an extraordinary human beingvery warm, understanding of the fears of the battlefield, the fears of the soldiers, the pain of our friends who were killed and wounded and burned in that horrible battle. Yet all the time he was giving orders, optimistic a ray of light in this valley of death. And he was changing defeat into victory by creating the bridgehead on the Suez Canal, crossing to the other side behind the Egyptians. Four years later, when President Anwar Sadat arrived at Ben Gurion Airport, the first question he put to the late Prime Minister Menachem Begin was, Is also General Sharon present here? Everyone heard him because it was satellite broadcasted. Ariel Sharon was Minister of Agriculture in the government. We stood there. And in that historic moment, Mr. Begin said, Yes. And he moved him to where Sharon was. President Sadat tells him, I wanted to capture you there on the Canal, referring to when Sharon brilliantly outmaneuvered the Egyptian divisions. Mr. Sharon responded, Well, you can capture me now in peace, Mr. President. I went with Sharon on May 19, 1981, as guest of Anwar Sadat to his palace in Cairo. This time we crossed the Canal and Sinai Desert in peace in a boat carrying watermelons. Sadat was there elegantly dressed. Sharon was in civilian outfit, elegant, sitting and facing him. Sadat asked a young officer to bring a map of Egypt. Sadat went on his knees to look at the southern part of Egypt, and Sharon followed him. This is the place where I want you to help me to develop

Anwar Sadat, circa 1981, was ultimately assassinated for making peace with Israel.

agriculture, near the desert. Sharon tells him, Okay, I am ready to help Egypt to develop agriculture. Baxter: I remember reading about that story in Sharons autobiography, Warrior. Sharon has been painted as such a warmonger, and yet the story you are sharing tells us there is a lot more to Ariel Sharon. Uri: He has been demonized by his rivals and by an ignorant press. You know, I dont even want to look for reasons for the slandering that has been done to him. He is too good to be true. Baxter: Sharon had a plan when he headed for the front in the Yom Kippur War. Now here he is again. Israel is in crisis. Does he already know what his plan is? Im not asking you to divulge it, because I know you cannot do that. But is he the type person who thinks ahead and already knows what he intends to do to try to resolve some of these difficulties that Israel is facing right now?

Uri: No doubt. Ariel Sharon is a man of surprises when it comes to difficult situations; when it comes to situations that are regarded as helpless by others. He was saying yes to Ben Gurion when there were very difficult missions in the War of Independence. He was saying yes to Begin when they wanted to build and settle Judea and Samaria, changing the map of Israel. Those beautiful settlements are what he calls the modern pioneers of the State of Israel. It was done under very difficult conditions because of Jews from within who were fighting, not believing in the Zionist idea of first settling the country. And then he said yes to Begin to help him make the decision to destroy Saddam Husseins nuclear reactor in Baghdad on June 19, 1981. At the time, he was Minister of Agriculture and part of the Defense Ministerial Special Cabinet. After we bombed Baghdad, the U.S. immediately sanctioned Israel through Casper Weinberger. Later they learned they were wrong and removed the sanctions. Try to imagine for a moment

Saddam Hussein invades Kuwait ten years later. He behaves in the most aggressive and militaristic way. Then the U.S. comes after him in Desert Storm. What if Saddam had the nuclear bomb by then? So Israel bombing his nuclear reactor was one of the most important decisions Sharon helped Begin to take! I am his personal friend. I am a journalist covering many subjects all throughout the world. I covered the Vietnam War and other events. I was in Yugoslavia two years ago. That horrible day when the Bin Laden terrorists bombed the American Embassy in Kenya, I was in Nairobi five hours later. I have covered diplomatic summits of all kinds. But I always have been proud and privileged to accompany and serve a great leader in any measure, Ariel Sharon. Ari-el. It means God-Lion. Its also a synonym for Jerusalem, mentioned in the Bible (Isaiah 29:1). Sharon is a type of Churchill who the people are looking toward to get them out of this dreadful diplomatic and military ambush imposed by the Arabs with the danger of escalating. He wants to create a national unity government, because he first wants to make peace among the Jews so we can stand together to enhance the chances of peace, and in order to deter from the risks of war. Baxter: Uri, were hearing reports that Iraq now has nuclear weapons in hand. There is a defector who is testifying before the U.S. government. Do you believe that report, and if so, isnt it somewhat strategic that Sharon comes to power at such a treacherous time? Uri: No doubt. It is a very interesting coincidence. But thank God the new administration in America is getting back to the right line in treating Saddam Hussein. Whether the report is accurate or not is not important, because for more than three years Saddam has been without supervision from the UN. It is known to intelligence agencies all over that he has been trying to produce mass destructive weapons, buying all kinds of know how and strategic material and equipment in Europe from greedy companies or engineers. It is important that the U.S. awakened under President George W. Bush to look straight into the eyes of the danger and to tellto signal to Saddam,

Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, 1981.

Hey, we are here. Pay attention. You have to stop it. The message is very clear. It was an unfinished war ten years ago. Baxter: When George W. Bush was running for office, he made a very strong promise that when he came to power he would move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. What is your personal opinion? Should he follow through on that promise? Uri: Yes, he should keep his promise when it comes to this special city for all the worldJerusalem. The United States is the biggest democracy in the world. He should challenge the fundamentalist Moslem terrorists like Bin Laden by saying yes, we are in Jerusalem with our embassy. Sax: Is Sharon going to negotiate with Arafat, or is he simply going to give Arafat the bottom line. Uri: Well, Ariel Sharon is trying to

unite the Jews in this critical moment. He has said already, I will not negotiate under fire. The violence must be stopped if negotiations are to go on. This is what he told Secretary of State Colin Powell. He will not go back to the shameful past of negotiating while under fire, which is what Barak regretfully did during those five dreadful months. The message is very clear. Israel, under the government of Sharon, is ready to negotiate another way of coexistence. No miraculous solutions. Pragmatic answers are needed to create a mutual platform for coexistence in peace, step by step. Is there a partner on the other side? We will see. Baxter: Thank you so much. Well be looking for that book when it comes out, Temple Mount in Our Hands, Part Two. Our prayers are with you. Uri: Thank you very much. And many thanks for the friends of Israel in the U.S. We need you so much in these critical moments.

Has China Threat Gone Away?

Prophecy still says one-third will die
by Irvin Baxter Jr.

he China Conflict is the 800-lb. gorilla sitting in the middle of the worlds living room that simply cannot be ignored. The prophecy of Revelation 9:15-16 clearly foretells a conflict that will kill one-third of mankind. It states that a war will be triggered by an army of 200 million soldiers. China is the only nation on earth that can field such an army.

Brief history
At the end of World War II, Chinese leader Chiang Kai-Shek was asked by General Douglas MacArthur to occupy the Island of Taiwan for the Allied Forces. Taiwan had been controlled by the Japanese since 1895. Chiang Kai-Shek moved into Taiwan in 1945. Four years later, Communist revolutionaries swept through Mainland China, defeating Chiang Kai-Shek and the Chinese government. This forced Chiang Kai-Shek to flee to Taiwan. The free Chinese government hoped to use Taiwan as a base until the day they could reinvade the mainland and drive the Communists out of China. The Communists wanted to someday conquer the forces of Chiang Kai-Shek and the Island of Taiwan, eradicating the possibility that the communist dictator20

ship would be overthrown. Over the last 56 years, Taiwan has become a democratic nation and now boasts the worlds 18th largest economy. China has 1.3 billion people and is expected by many to dominate the world during the 21st Century. While recognizing the so-called One China Policy, which states that China

and Taiwan should someday become one, the United States has stated that unification should only be achieved by mutual agreement and not by force. Because of continued threats by Mainland China against Taiwan, America passed the Taiwan Relations Act in 1979. This law states that the U.S. should supply whatever arms are

needed by Taiwan in order to adequately defend herself against any exterior threat. The whole world knows that the threat mentioned in the Taiwan Relations Act refers directly to Mainland China. When China threatened war in 1996, because Taiwan was holding her first democratic elections, the United States moved its Seventh Fleet into the Straits of Taiwan blocking any military intentions that China had. Since that time, China has stated repeatedly that, if Taiwan did not submit to the control of the Mainland, there was going to be war. In August of 1999, China issued a White Paper to its military leaders instructing them to prepare the forces under their commands for war with Taiwan and the United States. The White Paper stated that the anticipated conflict would likely include nuclear exchanges. In the meantime, China was building up its military capability as fast as possible. In September of 1999, it was announced that China was buying two nuclear submarines that could hit targets several thousand miles away. In February of 2000, China took delivery from Russia of a nuclear equipped Sovremenny ship capable of sinking the largest aircraft carriers in the Seventh Fleet. In November of 2000, China received the second Sovremenny from Russia. Taiwans second democratic elections were to be held in March of 2000. The polls showed that the Democratic Peoples Party (DPP) and its leader Chen Shui-bian might win the elections. The DPP openly advocated total independence from the Mainland. Chinas governmental officials declared loudly that, if the DPP were elected by the people of Taiwan, it would mean war. Taiwan elected Chen Shui-bian anyway. Things became so tense in the region that the U.S. once again moved its Seventh Fleet into the area. Statements were issued by the United States, warning that military action against Taiwan would not be tolerated.

with his hard-line comments on Taiwan. He was quoted by the Chinese press agency Xinhua as saying the only alternative to unification (between China and Taiwan) is war. On March 7th, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell countered with a warning that military action against Taiwan by China would not be tolerated. We strongly believe that Taiwan is a thriving democracy, and under no circumstances will we ever tolerate anything that changes the status of Taiwan unless it is being changed as a result of open, free, balanced negotiations between the two parties, Powell said. Heightening tensions in the already dangerous atmosphere, China recently announced that she will increase military spending this year by a huge 17%. Probably the most ominous development in the China-Taiwan-U.S. dispute was the recent theft of the computer codes that control U.S. missile guidance systems. The story broke on March 2nd and was carried by American Freedom News: Computer experts raided the offices of an IT company in Stockholm last month. They found a copy of the source codes for the software program OS/COMETDeveloped by the U.S. Air Force, OS/MET was deployed on the NAVSTAR GPS monitoring station in Colorado Springs. Intelligence officials believe the source code theft was carried out over the Internet on Christmas Eve last year from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. The theft was first detected by the military on December 27, 2000. China had previously announced that she is placing high priority on cyber warfare. If U.S. high-tech weapons have been neutralized, then China should be able to fight the U.S. from an equal footing. There is no proof that China was behind the theft of the U.S. guidance systems computer codes, but there is also no proof that she was not. Just the possibility that our guidance system codes are now in Chinese hands is ominous indeed!

and Patriot missile defense systems. Taiwan insists that, due to Chinas continuing military escalation, the requested new weaponry is essential. On the other hand, China is adamant that the sale of high-tech weapons to Taiwan is fanning the flames of war. Urging Washington to rein-in its wild horse at the edge of the cliff, Chinas foreign minister, Tang Jiaxuan, on March 6th issued one of the strongest warnings yet over U.S. sales of advanced weapons to Taiwan. The United States should come to a recognition of the serious dangers involved, Tang said.

So what do we do?
Any thinking person has to shudder when considering the horrific implications of the China War prophecy. Two billion dead? Unthinkable! Yet it is going to happen! The prophecy stares back at us from the pages of Revelation 9:15, And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. So what do we do? We know that its highly likely that the U.S. will be involved in the coming conflagration. Could this result in relatively minor damage to the U.S., or it could mean total annihilation? The only recourse for each individual is to be ready. If you are not absolutely sure that you are prepared for eternity, you should take the necessary action immediately. (Our What Do You MeanBorn Again? pamphlet will explain what you should do. Call 1-800endtime for your free copy.) Once our personal salvation is secured, we should think about the implication for the millions of unsaved. This prophecy holds the seeds for great revival in America. By spreading the word about what is coming, we can persuade many to turn to God. The spiritual awakening that will be generated by this unprecedented prophetic fulfillment will accelerate as events develop and the conflict looms on the immediate horizon. After the catastrophe occurs, many more will turn to God once they are shown that the disaster they have witnessed was prophesied 2,000 years ago. Our marching orders are clear. Daniel 11:33 states: And they that understand among the people shall instruct many

by Eddie Sax Lutherans Consider Pope as Universal Christian Spokesman

One generation ago, Protestants in Germany regarded the pope as the Antichrist. Today, Lutheran bishops in Germany are seriously debating whether the pope could act as a universally accepted spokesman for all Christianity. The presiding bishop of the United Evangelical Lutheran Church, Hans Christian Knuth, suggests that Protestants might recognize the pope in this capacity. The sentiment was echoed by a Bavarian bishop who oversees Lutheran-Catholic relations. Not everyone in the denomination feels it is a good idea. But the fact that it can even be considered reflects the signs of the times. One church leader against the idea is Ishmael Noko. One cannot disassociate his spiritual role from his place as primate of the Roman Catholic episcopate. But, he continued, does globalization really call for a global spokesman for all Christians? Catholics say yes. Lutherans are, amazingly, undecided. The Bible prophesies an endtime false prophet who will claim to speak for Christians as well as the other world faiths who acknowledge that all religions are valid pathways to God. That person is prophesied to be whoever is pope of the Roman Catholic Church at the time of the Antichrist.

W o r l d
intercultural conflicts. President Gorbachev is a living symbol of peaceful change and understanding. According to Pope John Paul II and Dr. Robert Schuller, among others, Gorbachev is a Christian. According to the prophecies of the Bible, this same man meets many criteria of a future world leader who will deceive his way into power on a platform of peace. Daniel 7:7 speaks of the Antichrist as a man who will have great iron teeth. When Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko introduced Gorbachev to the Politburo in 1985 as the new President, he said, Comrades, this man has a nice smile, but teeth of iron. Readers Digest then called Gorbachev The Man With Iron Teeth and the title has stuck. Only time will tell us whether any of these facts are significant.

U.S. & UN Pressure Yugoslavia, Sovereignty Invaded

If the new government in Yugoslavia wants to continue to receive financial aid from the United States, then the U.S. has said that it must capitulate to demands to arrest and imprison Slobodan Milosevic by the end of March. It must also assist in extraditing alleged war criminals to the Hague for trial. The pressure is coming in conjunction with the United Nations, who wants to try Milosevic itself, not allowing Yugoslavia the opportunity. This action, however, is in conflict with the UNs own international laws which state that if a country is unwilling to prosecute its own citizens suspected of war crimes, then the International Criminal Court will do the prosecuting for them. In the case of Milosevic, the UN is not willing to allow Yugoslavia its own opportunity to prosecute. This UN action is being hailed by many as a victory for humanity and global governance, and another empowering step toward the establishment of a bona fide world government.

Dear Mikhail, Happy Birthday to You

As Mikhail Gorbachev turned 70 on March 2nd, the international media was filled with stories considering the legacy of this Nobel Peace Laureate. While his image in Russia low, it is improving. He and President Vladimir Putin show a glowing mutual respect for each other, which is not surprising considering Putin headed the Berlin unit of Gorbachevs KGB during the 1989 orchestrated collapse of the Berlin Wall. Gorbachevs image outside of Russia is universally, with few exceptions, double thumbs up.

Mideast Was on Brink of War

In response to U.S. air strikes on key positions in Baghdad on February 16, Saddam Hussein deployed thousands of troops to positions near the Jordanian border. The act triggered military alerts in Tel Aviv, Washington and in several Gulf nation capitals. Answering the move, Israeli air force jets flew toward Syria, while U.S. and British planes hit Iraqi targets. Hussein halted his troop movements. This all took place while Colin Powell was in Israel. It appears we are dealing with a man, said a U.S. defense spokesman, who is not afraid and could act on moments notice.

Concern was that membership would mean higher taxes, higher interest rates, heavy financial contributions and a loss of sovereignty. Switzerland has a booming economy and has already negotiated free trade agreements with the EU.

All of Switzerlands concerns and reasons for rejecting inclusion in the EU are applicable to any nation considering a closer relationship with the UN higher taxes, higher interest, heavy dues and most importantly, a loss of sovereignty.

Bush Meets with NATO U.S. Isolation at Stake

President Bush met with Javier Solana, NATOs secretary-general, to discuss two issues vital to Americas ultimate destiny in the coming prophesied world government the U.S. plan for a missile defense system and the European Unions endeavor to form its own military force. If both efforts are achieved, this would put the United States on an isolationist course that may eventually place her in opposition to the New World Order. The development of an EU military force would leave America on the outside, as the nucleus of world power shifts to Europe. An all-Europe military may, in effect, become a new NATO without U.S. participation. Secretary of State Colin Powells late February visit to NATO headquarters eased all worries. He assured European foreign ministers that the United States would not pull out of the Balkans before any of the other NATO participants, which was an issue of concern. He also said that the U.S. decision to develop an anti-missile defense would be accomplished only with close consultation with its European allies. The system is intended to shoot down missiles fired by nations of concern, such as North Korea, Iran or Iraq. By an overwhelming four to one mar-

Environmentalists Still Winning PR Battle

Global warming was high on the agenda at the recent G-8 meeting in Italy. Environment ministers from the seven most industrialized nations in the world, plus Russia, renewed their unified effort to combat global warming. A spokesman for the G-8 hailed the discussion as a strong political message. Greenpeace did not feel they went far enough. The World Wildlife Fund concluded that the Bush administration now has no choice but to follow through. Anti-globalism groups, such as Sovereignty International, claim the issue of global warming has been fabricated and that scientific evidence, in actuality, refutes the popularly held conclusions. CEO Dr. Michael Coffman asserts the global warming issue is being used as a Trojan horse that is intended to do nothing more than empower the worldwide environmentalism movement for its greater purpose of achieving world government.

Changing How Society Thinks
By Eddie Sax and Irvin Baxter Jr.

t was a typical article. There was nothing fancy or earth-shattering about it. Its title was, Spiritual Upbringing: Experts Agree Belief in the Divine Has Benefits for Children, and it appeared one Saturday last year in many of the newspapers in America. This article was just another in a long string of similar articles that have been published in the last several years. It was one of thousands, and on the surface it was certainly no big deal. The real action, however, was taking place below the surface. The ugly fact is that the millions who read this article were in actuality staring into the face of the thinking of the one-world religion that will be presided over by the prophesied False Prophet of the endtime. This seemingly innocent item was featured nationwide by Gannett News Service, which owns USA Today and a considerable percentage of all newspapers in the United States. And make no mistake this article was not carried by accident. It was by design! And we must understand the design. If we dont ascribe

Pope Paul VI began the ecumenical movement in 1962, shown here at the United Nations.

to the thinking promoted in this article, we will face increasing pressure. Ultimately, conformity will be foisted upon us by what the Bible calls the mark of the beast. It has long been said that what you dont know wont hurt you. Its not a true statement. Hosea 4:6 says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. What you dont know can hurt you bad. It was a very feel-good article.

Spiritual Upbringing: Experts Agree Belief in the Divine Has Benefits for Children. The title itself tells us that weve got experts who agree. We have belief, divine, benefits and children. What a cluster of good-feeling words! Certainly, if you dont agree with this, youve got something wrong with you. The article begins: A belief in a higher power, pastors say, can help children accept the inexplicable, feel protected and praised, and tame selfish-

ness. Wow! Wonderful benefits, and its all coming from pastors. Sounds good! I think its good for kids to realize early on that there is something much greater than themselves, says Eric Laverentz, youth pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tenn. Well, it cant be bad. Youth pastor at a mainline Protestant church. It must be right. Whether the belief system exalts Allah, Buddha, Jehovah, Jesus, Oludamare or nature, pastors say, the belief that there is a divine order to life can encourage children to seek lessons in living. It must be good. After all, pastors are saying it. Im not so sure about promoting Allah, Buddha and Oludamare to the level of Jehovah and Jesus, but, well, these are the experts. Lets keep reading. Children who are 5 and younger might not be able to grasp a philosophical sense of God, but they will model how spirituality affects the lives of their parents, says Jim Wellborn, a family therapist affiliated with the Tennessee Christian Medical Center. Okay hes a therapist. That means hes an authority figure. He should know what hes talking about. And hes affiliated with a big medical center. So, if Im a Christian, I can believe this guy. Surely, its harmless. You can use spiritual stories to impart principles such as cooperation, faith and patience (all good things). You can also teach compassion with prayer (we all believe in prayer). Laverentz suggests guiding children to, not only ask for things in prayer, but to pray for those who need help and to give thanks for blessings. The article continues: Pastor Dan Rosemergy, chairman of the Interfaith Alliance Pause. Now, my friends, were going to move you a little bit. We will move you from Christianity to Interfaithism. You must understand the term Interfaithism. One day you will be forced to believe it. Ecumenism is the movement to unify all Christian religions. Ecumenism has now largely been accomplished. Most all of Christianity has come into unity of belief. Now we are moving from Ecumenism to Interfaithism. Interfaithism, we are being told, is for broad-thinking, better-educated people.

Minister Asha Praver, right, administers a blessing to member Cheryl Sargent, left, during sevices at the Ananda Samgha church in Palo Alto, Calif., Sunday, Jan. 14, 2000. The church combines Christianity and Hindu theology with meditation, yoga and group chanting.

The title itself tells us that weve got experts who agree. We have belief, divine, benefits and children. What a cluster of good-feeling words! Certainly, if you dont agree with this, youve got something wrong with you.
We must realize that most of the world is not Christian, and that there are other ways of looking at God. There are other names used for God. Consequently, Interfaithism is good. So Pastor Dan Rosemergy, chairman of Interfaith Alliance of Middle Tennessee says that parents also should open children to re-

spect for different expressions of God through other world faiths. So now, if you are a parent, you have an obligation to open your childs mind to respect different expressions of God through other world faiths. If people dont believe in Jesus, there are other expressions of God, and these are also legitimate faiths. Let us pause to remind you that this is being published under the official title of the Gannett News Service, who owns USA Today, the most widely circulated newspaper in America and a powerful percentage of all newspapers in America. They are feeding and affecting the minds of the people who dont recognize the deadly poison that is being injected into their minds and spirits. Thanks to this article and thousands more like it being printed hourly, people all across the United States have shaped new opinions. It sounds good to me, they are now thinking. This philosophy spells the end of religious strife! Religion causes all the wars. I feel like Ive become more broadminded and more tolerant. Ive got new worldview. Im a cosmopolitana world thinker. Thank God Im no longer a narrow-minded patriotic redneck. I understand that we now live in a global civilization. This is all very good. Such is the desired effect of this article.

It goes on: But beware of using spirituality as discipline, Wellborn says. Emphasis on sin, hell and damnation can overshadow the supportive, encouraging, reassuring and loving aspects of faith. Conclusion? Dont preach on sin. Dont preach on hell. And dont preach on damnation, because you will hurt people doing that. It will destroy the supportive, encouraging, reassuring and loving aspects of faith. Jesus Christ just got kicked out the side door, for He spoke quite a bit about sin, hell and damnation. But apparently we should not. Wellborne says older children might be curious about how spiritual tenets relate to them, so look for ways to highlight spirituality in everyday life. If your spiritual system reveres offerings to ancestors, do so as a family and list the benefits of those activities. If your beliefs are centered on the divinity of nature, commit to outdoor activities so children can visualize aspects of their beliefs. Again, this article is only for the welleducated. If you dont agree with what it is saying, then obviously you are not among the well-educated. Lets go on: Be prepared for intellectual talks about faith and religion, Wellborn suggests. Adolescents define themselves by bumping against authority, he explains. Authority? What authority? God. Your kids will be challenging faith and challenging God. Although this phase will pass, he says, emphasize the importance of your spirituality as family tradition. The deeper and more clearly you demonstrate and express the role of faith in your life, Wellborn says, the better it is for your kids. Because many temples, synagogues, mosques and churches emphasize inclusion and acceptance, Wellborn says, spiritual networks can be havens for youth who cherish the company of folks with similar values. Inclusion? But the Bible teaches exclusion. Except you believe that Jesus is Messiah, you will die in your sins. There is no other name under heaven whereby we must be saved. Where does inclusion fit in? Remember to learn from your children too, Rosemergy says. We need to open ourselves to the wonder and awe and the sense of the spiritual in children.

Children are being educated to believe that earth worship is a perfectly acceptable way of worshiping God. It is not. "Earth First!" member "sundog" meditates by the Eel River in California.

We must realize that most of the world is not Christian, and that there are other ways of looking at God. There are other names used for God
In order to fully appreciate the antibiblical nature of this seemingly innocent article, we need to establish some background. In 1995, someone from the United Nations placed a call to William Swing, an Episcopalian bishop in San Francisco. He was asked to host an ecumenical service of religious and political leaders who were to be in town for the 50th Anniversary celebration of the founding of the UN. The UN, of course, is very important. After all, it has evolved into a world gov-

ernmental structure that has enough clout to tell everyone on earth what to do. Consequently, to celebrate was very important, and San Francisco was the place, because it was in that city in 1945 that the UNs constitution was signed. Furthermore, lest we forget, the man who wrote that constitution was American diplomat, Alger Hiss, who, three years later, was convicted of perjury for lying about his activities as a communist spy. He spent several years in prison for this crime. So leaders from around the world converged upon the city by the Bay. The goal was to bring together politics and religion in an ecumenical service that would express true global spirituality. Bishop Swing kindly consented to host the meeting. Out of that meeting was born an idea for a United Nations of religions an organization that would do for the religions of the world what the UN has done for the nations of the world. For the next year Bishop Swing was to travel the world meeting with such people as the Dalai Lama, Bishop Desmond Tutu from South Africa, the pope, Mother Teresa, and several Hindu leaders whose names are difficult to pronounce, no less to type. The reason he went to see these people was to find out if they would support the formation of a United Religions

Organization. The answer was yes. Consequently, the next year they began the process of writing a charter. This charter was signed on June 26, 2000. United Religions claims that it is not forming a new religion. In fact, they are. It is called Interfaithism, and it appears almost certain that it will be the structure over which the False Prophet will preside. It will be the vehicle that the Antichrist will use to enforce conformity to his unbiblical New World Order. It is no accident that United Religions is being done hand-in-glove with the United Nations. The UN will be the prophesied one-world government, and the UR will be its religious counterpart. I attended the final day of the United Religions charter-writing conference in June of 1998. It was held at Stanford University, close to San Francisco. What an eye-popping experience! In attendance were religious leaders of all colors and creeds. There were Protestants, Catholics, Jewish rabbis, Muslims, Buddhists, Wiccans (Wicca means witch; they were very well accepted at this meeting), the Indigenous (Native Americans who worship the great white spirit), and people with names I could not pronounce. They were all there to celebrate one god, whatever you call him, and they came together in a spirit of cooperation. I was the only sore thumb in attendance. At the meetings close, every person in the building was given the opportunity to say one word. There were words spoken like truth, peace, tolerance and love. Each person marched by the microphone while the Indigenous people played the drums. They asked me to participate, but the only words I could think of were sin, hell and damnation. I opted out. That was 1998. In 1999, they had their final preparatory meeting. In the meantime, conferences were being held all over the world on a weekly basis. Their website is Their constitution was signed on the same day of the year the United Nations constitution was signed. The original stated plan was to sign it in the same room in San Franciscos Fairmont Hotel as the UN signing, but for some reason the plans were changed and the signing was moved to Pittsburgh. Here is the official logic behind United Religions: All of the worlds po28

litical leaders get together every day to talk in a forum called the UN. They get along. They have moved from a state of constant conflict to a state of harmony. To speak of the World Community is to speak of truth, peace, tolerance and love. When the World Community speaks, it is basically with one voice. And yet the religious leaders of the world wont even speak to each other at all! Let us therefore create a parallel forum for the worlds religions. If we can get representatives from all of the worlds major religions together, we will talk and talk and talk until a mutual appreciation develops. Ultimately there will be the same type of consensus among the worlds religions that we presently enjoy among the nations. The prime movers of the United Religions have been working on Call 1-800-Endtime this plan diligently for five years. And it all began with a call from the United Nations. As a matter of fact, when the United Religions Initiative was signed in the fall of 1996, one of its Please consider making three signers was Dr. Robert Muller, a high a tax-deductible level UN official. As much as the UR may gift to Endtime claim that the UN is not involved, it is. In fact, a strong case can be made that its the UNs baby. This is critical to understand. The Bible teaches of a time when every person will Bible teaches there will be two leaders on have to worship the one-world govern- the earth the Antichrist and the False mental beast. The religions of the world Prophet. The latter will use his influence will play the role of partner in this proph- to have the people on earth worship the esied system of global governance. The Antichrist and his global system. Those

who do not voluntarily go under the influence the ones who just dont get it will be forced. Economic pressure will be applied. Submit or starve will be the first edict given to these enemies of peace. Its the mark of the beast. Submit or die will be the second edict. There will be no other way to achieve a sustainable world order. Unless you bow the knee, you wont get your number validated; and youll find yourself walking away from Kroger, Safeway, Piggly Wiggly and Albertsons empty handed. Transaction deniedhave a nice day. By the time this system is fully implemented, the world will have come through a catastrophe where two billion will have died. According to the prophecies, the 6th Trumpet of Revelation sounds before the mark of the beast is implemented. The death of the two billion human beings will be blamed on religious and political intolerance. Dissent will no longer be tolerated. A de facto mandate for peace will be issued from the four billion who survive. We must learn tolerance and appreciation, and frankly, the sooner the better. Thats the reason we are teaching today that parents also should open children to respect for different expressions of God through other world faiths. Thats the foundation. So whats wrong with this? Christianity, as given to us by Jesus Christ, is an exclusive religion. The Apostle Paul said that if anyone comes preaching any other gospel than the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are to treat him as one accursed. Consequently, anyone who is unwilling to renounce the religious exclusiveness inherent in the teachings of Christianity, by default, becomes an enemy of the New World Order. In 1987, Mikhail Gorbachev wrote his famous book Perestroika. It was his blueprint for one-world government. Perestroika means restructuring or revolution. The book outlines the concepts and thinking that must motivate the emerging global society that we find ourselves moving into right now. One of the 19 points in his summary for world peace and security on page 231 says, We must extirpate all genocide, apartheid and religious exclusiveness.

What will become of our children when we teach them to respect all different expressions of God, and that there are many pathways that lead to Him? The worldwide explosion of body art is a modern-day revival of some ancient pagan religions. Al Sanft, 26, is from Ft. Collins, Colorado.

If you understand what he is saying, it should make your hair stand on end. But many times, you see, these concepts are couched in high sounding phrases. Remember, Interfaithism is for broadthinking, better-educated people. Heres what Gorbachev means. Extirpate means to kill off. He is saying that we must kill off all religious exclusiveness. The intention of the article, Spiritual Upbringing, is to educate us against religious exclusiveness. What is religious exclusiveness? It is the belief that there is one true God and one true religion. Are you guilty? Im guilty as I can be. Because I absolutely believe in one and only one God. I also believe that you have to know His name in order to be saved! And why would I say such a preposterous thing? Its because Acts 4:12 says, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Buddha? Allah? Krishna? Oludamare? Nature in its fullest? We are seeing an effort to establish a one-world government over which Satan himself plans to rule through a man called the Antichrist. There are many

scriptures which lead us to believe that the Antichrist will be possessed by Satan himself. You will continue to hear repeatedly that all religions are really worshiping the same god. Global spirituality, a term you will hear of more and more, is the belief that there is a divine order to life. If you believe there is a divine order, even if you think you are god yourself, then you are a spiritual person. Are we being too narrow minded? Could all this be true? If so, what are the implications? If we are really worshipping the same god as all other religions, then Baal is a legitimate god, as well as Ashtoreth and Chemosh. Moreover, God was unjust for punishing the Israelites for worshiping those gods, since they are just other names for the one true God. The simple fact is thiseverything in Spiritual Upbringing is anti-Bible. In order to accept this Gannett News article, and the thousands of others like it being printed daily, worldwide, you have to reject the Bible. June 26, 2000 United Religions Organization was formed. There is a plan, and it is far advanced.
