ARCHIVE NUMBER FOUR
report is going to focus on world events rather than events in the Church.
That is not because there's no revival news. It's more because there is
TOO MUCH revival/apostasy news. It is becoming hard to follow all the
various strange doctrines and practises emanating from churches these
days. But the bottom line is: where scripture is disregarded and God
is disobeyed, there you will eventually find every kind of evil.
error has the hallmark of disregard for the word of God. We don't
need to know every specific error; we just need to know the scriptures.
And whatever contradicts, twists, adds to, disregards or goes beyond the
scriptures takes us into the realm of error.
has often been said that the revival churches and the leaders of the "New
Order" love and adhere to the word of God. They say they accept the
Bible as their foundation. On the contrary, although lip-service is paid
to scripture, it is NEW REVELATIONS and extra-biblical teachings that
are now the guiding light of the religious globalists. We see this from
Ted Haggard's statement, as printed in "Charisma" magazine last
must seek out a powerful, spiritual revelation of the Bible that will
replace the purely intellectual study of God's Word. One of the
tenants of postmodernism, which is the term scholars are using to describe
our cultural moment, is that experience is valued over cognitive
reasoning. Intelligence is still important, of course, but it is
no substitute for existential experience. We need both study
and encounters with God. We don't want to just understand something
intellectually and squeeze the world into airtight models for existence;
we want to live, to feel, to interact. This means that the Bible will
become more than just a manual for morality or theology. It will be
an open door to life in Christ. We won't just memorize biblical truths;
we will seek God for a powerful, experiential understanding of
what those truths mean for our lives." From "New Year's
Resolutions For a New Millennium" by Ted Haggard
when it comes to tracking the revival as it progresses, we don't really
need to know every single detail of the ongoing apostasy. In fact,
trying to find out exactly what is being said and done by everybody is
perhaps tending to spiritual voyeurism, anyway. It's rather like stopping
the car at the scene of a road accident to watch what is going on.
many do want to find out whether their own Pastors and churches are following
wrong doctrine. I understand that, and I grieve for the many who are hurting
and bewildered by events. However, I want to offer ministry and information
that is helpful and constructive, and not to contribute to the
problem - which is, in two words "itching ears". That is why
I often gently advise people to conduct their OWN researches, including
praying about it, and searching the word of God for answers,
because in that way they can build up their own reserves of discernment
and grow spiritually to the point that combating deception is no longer
a real problem.
do write to me asking for specific information on an individual or a ministry.
I share their concern and zeal to uncover deception. However, I keep no
database of information on individuals and ministries. (If the information
you are seeking isn't on this website, it means I haven't researched it,
so there's no point writing to ask me!).
deal with the broad scope of error, trying to educate Christians in the
foundational concepts underlying ALL error and deception. Once having
learnt that, everything else falls into place.
EVENTS FOLLOWING A CLIMAX?
I follow the news reports and events as detailed by various mailing lists
and websites, I feel a growing concern and urgency that something is COMING.
The events in the UN and Israel are particularly important.
may be relevant (I don't know - we will wait and see) to look at the statement
by David Meyer in his "Last Trumpet" newsletter, that at New
Year's Eve there was a dramatic "conception" portrayed in countries
around the world by means of symbolism and allegory.
points out that the obelisk at Washington (in Egypt the obelisk was the
phallus of the sun-god) was used to display a huge convulsive light display
that shot out into the night sky.
myself watched the TV reports of a similar and even more graphic firework
display on and around the Eiffel Tower (France). This was so descriptive
of a male orgasm that I remarked upon it at the time to my husband.
when I read the statement of David Meyer, it rang true: that December
31st was the day of the conception of a new world order (and who knows
what else) and that after nine month's gestation it would be brought forth
and revealed to the world.
further points out that before the birth of any baby, there is Labour.
We now know that a 13-day period around Labour Day, 4th September,
was used to mount a series of major meetings in New York to bring together
the architects of the New World Order. Three meetings held the attention
of the world's press during that time, a UN Summit, a meeting of the world's
religions organised by the United Religions Initiative (URI), and the
State of the World Forum.
before looking at these events, let's turn to another festival that climaxed
at Labour Day weekend. This was the satanic festival of the burning
of the straw man in the Nevada Desert.
I should perhaps point out that in times past the burning of a straw or
wicker-man took place in Britain as part of fertility rites in honour
of the Mother Goddess and her Child. It was part and parcel of the
belief that "The Seed" would come forth from the Earth Mother
if she was worshipped in appropriate ways.
To begin with, that worship was through human sacrifice, and the
gruesome truth is that the straw man was formerly filled with the unfortunate
victims who were to be burnt alive. A little later on the sacrifices were
live animals. This practise eventually ceased but as we see, the belief
and concept continues!

the Nevada Desert in the know? Where they deliberately facilitating the

20,000 revelers from around the country are celebrating a bizarre and
blasphemous event this week in the sprawling salt flats of the northern
Nevada desert. The five-day festival called Burning Man, which climaxes
on Labor Day weekend, has become a counter-cultural holiday for artists,
performers, and free-spirits.
purpose is to "get high and be a naked hippie," said writer Bruce Sterling,
who attended the festival last year. Participants pay $75 to proclaim
their liberation from societal constraints and create a so-called "temporary
autonomous zone" that is torn down and hauled away when the weekend
ends. ...Almost anything goes during the Burning Man festival, which
has been described as the ultimate anarchist party. Celebrants display
bizarre art, beat drums from dusk to dawn, ride motorcycles, and play
throbbing techno music. Many participants -- male and female -- dance
around naked. Others cavort in the grip of hallucinogenic drugs, set
fires, and blow things up. ...
center and focal point of the encampment is a five-story-high, two-legged,
faceless wooden structure packed with pyrotechnics and neon. On Sunday
night, the climax of the festival, a solemn, freakish procession marches
up to the statue. Burning Man is torched as the enormous, boisterous,
cheering crowd dances in painted skin and loincloths and screams in
of the revelers asked Satan to take them to hell, George Otis wrote
in a March 'Charisma' magazine article. Camps around the Burning Man
figure had names such as Motel 666 and Lost Vegas. One individual told
Otis that he was "fully prepared to shake hands with the devil as I
stumble through the gates of hell."
final procession around the Burning Man celebrates the knowledge that
the dancers will all enter hell one day, Otis said. The crowd follows
the actors, simulating descent into the abyss, and arrives at a place
that its creators described as "a fountainhead of boundless rage, appalling
shame, and unendurable loneliness." The screeching of suffering souls
blends with the imagery of evil spirits dancing, humans chained in eternal
torment, and a woman being devoured by Satan."
BRITISH WICKER MAN
ERECTED IN SOMERSET
my surprise, having written the above report on the wicker man, to open
my newspaper and see a report on the installation of a huge (40-foot)
WICKER MAN effigy in Somerset.
report (Daily Telegraph Wednesday September 27th 2000) said that a giant
wicker man was being erected near the M5 in Bridgewater, to rival to the
Angel of the North (a gigantic metal angel by the A1 motorway near Gateshead).
The creator of the wicker man, Serena de la Hay, said she had been inspired
by stories of the Druid fertility festivals. Her version of the wicker
man will be semi-permanent, degrading over a period of years.
I said, other and perhaps more sinister [because more subtle] events took
place nine months after the "conception" on New Year's Eve,
timed to coincide with Labour Day in America, 4th September.
a period of 13 days, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, media mogul Ted
Turner, New Age Canadian billionaire Maurice Strong and former Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev hosted three meetings to promote "global governance"
(the new term for the One World Government.) Global governance means the
tying together of men and governments through charters, treaties and evolving
international standards that cannot be enforced. Not yet, anyway.
reports from Lucis Trust, the organisation promoting World Goodwill and
the Maitreya (the false "christ"), we read that the Ascended
Masters (those who supposedly govern world affairs from a higher spiritual
level) rule over three main aspects of human life - Religion, Politics,
and Finance/Social Order. It is said that the New World Order will be
launched when these three aspects are dealt with by world leaders at one
and the same time. As we shall see from the following reports, around
LABOUR DAY this month, the three meetings in New York were indeed focused
on Religion, Government and Social Order/Finance respectively. Can this
be a coincidence or do powerful forces want to set in motion the Plan
for World Government?
TO CUTTING EDGE REPORTS: At this point I want to draw your attention
to some reports on the "Cutting
Edge" website relating to the setting up of the NWO and related
events. I think you will find them relevant which is why I am giving the
links at this point. Notice, that in doing this I am NOT recommending
the website as a whole, as I do not know enough about the rest of this
person's materials and even some of the reports I am giving here contain
some observations that I consider a little far-fetched.
the less, here is an opportunity for you to view what the author says
about the plans for global government and three meetings to be held concurrently
to launch the NWO. He also reports plans (spoken of in 1991) to unite
all three monotheistic religions (Christianity, Islam and Judaism) and
to create a religious temple or shrine to be used by all three religions
(under UN management) on the Temple Mount. These plans are indeed now
well advanced, so we should take note of what is being said in the rest
of the reports.

"UN Millennium Summit" brought together a group of 150
Heads of State. They gathered to consider a "Charter For Global Democracy"
and to see what measures they could take to promote "peace, harmony,
tolerance and environmental protection" across the earth. Kofi
Annan described the summit as ‘a defining moment for world leaders
and for the United Nations.'

funding mechanism. Translated, this amounts to a standing army, which
can be sent into trouble spots with only 15 days notice, and a method
of direct global taxation to fund the unit.
The summit also featured a treaty ceremony designed to coax leaders into
signing over 500 pending UN treaties like the International Covenant on
Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, and The Rome Statute
of the International Criminal Court. The treaty-signing event was expected
to produce more than 250 transactions.
closely guarded and highly controversial draft document negotiated by
governments at the UN Millennium Summit revealed that the United Nations
plans to increase its influence and move closer to the center of the world
stage. There is no question that powerful people within the UN and those
closely connected to it want to exponentially expand UN power into all
aspects of human life.
participants were asked to affirm their "faith in the Organization and
its Charter as indispensable foundations of a more peaceful, prosperous
and just world." Over seven sections of the document called for increased
commitments to peace, human rights, poverty reduction and environmental
protection. The document calls for one new treaty – a Convention Against
Terrorism - and a world conference on nuclear disarmament.
hundreds of off-site mini-summits took place as the world leaders took
advantage of being in one city to meet with their counterparts. Amongst
the issues discussed were the record-breaking price of oil, the proposed
U.S. missile defense plan, the Middle East peace process, and trade agreements.

Annan opened up the historic Millennium Assembly by using a number of
phrases which connote a shift of ownership and responsibility.
He said, "You are the leaders to whom the world's peoples have entrusted
their destiny. They look to you to protect them from the great dangers
of our time." ... there has been a transfer of responsibility from
individual nation-states to a new collective whole -- the leaders of the
world as one. Other phrases used today included "common heritage, common
awareness, acting in partnership, common good, and solidarity." They
all say the same thing: we are one, we are the same.
Annan also described global governance, a phrase which has been
popularized by those who support the concept of the New World Order or
world government. What is global governance? They say it is not world
government, but it really is. A different form of world government than
what we imagined with governments merging their power under one umbrella
-- the United Nations.
Most Americans don't even know what "UN" stands for, let alone strengthen
and empower it to look, feel and act as a world governmental structure.
The ideas to strengthen the United Nations have long included a global
tax and a people's parliament. These too were recommended by world leaders.
The United Nations is being reinvented before our very eyes, before we
have time to breathe! Teeth are being put into its structure to make it
a very powerful world entity. How will we deal with this? (WorldNet

event happening in New York just before Labour Day was the United Religion's
"World Peace Summit" of Religious and Spiritual Leaders.
In effect, it was formulating a One World Church at the same time that
political leaders were forming the One World Government.
World Peace Summit brought together up to 1,000 representatives of dozens
of faith traditions including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and also less-known
groups practicing Jainism, Zoroastrianism and "indigenous religions."
Representatives from Christianity and the monotheistic faiths were heavily
outnumbered by Eastern religions. The only evangelical participant was
the daughter of Billy Graham.
Ted Turner was cheered when he denounced Christianity as "intolerant"
and praised "indigenous" religious faiths.
contrast, the delegates gave an icy reception to the Patriarch of Ethiopia,
who urged protection for unborn children, and the assistant secretary
general of the Muslim World Congress when he urged delegates to recognize
only marriage between "a man and a woman" and denounced all "abnormal
solutions to "world conflict" came chiefly from those who favor
redistribution of wealth and aggressive environmental controls. Wealthy
American professor Steven Rockefeller presented the Earth Charter
for the approval of summit participants. In his introduction Rockefeller
explained "the biosphere is in us, and we are in the biosphere."
Earth Charter, a pronouncement on the environment, grew from the frustrations
of the organizers of the UN Conference on Environment and Development
(Rio de Janeiro, 1992) who wanted an Earth Charter adopted there. Shortly
after the Rio conference, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev joined
with New Age Canadian billionaire Maurice Strong to begin a process that
they hope will end in the universal adoption of this document.
Earth Charter, which some promoters describe as a "new Ten Commandments,"
promotes a broad range of what many consider to be extreme environment
notions. Early drafts of the charter raised the suspicion of Christians
when references to "Mother Earth" seemed to verge on the pagan. In 16
major points the charter may sound like a benign call for peace, love
and understanding. However, the recommendations include population control,
sterilization and abortion.
According to Rockefeller, already hundreds of cities around the world
have agreed to the tenets of the charter. The Earth Charter campaign is
now running in dozens of countries. Governments, businesses and individuals
will be asked to agree to it in the coming months and years. It is expected
to be presented for ratification to the UN General Assembly next year.

THE PEACE PROCESS IN ISRAEL
of the most significant events around Labour Day, and an ongoing concern
of world leaders over many months, was the attempt to forge some kind
of peace in the Middle East.

that an interfaith temple will eventually be built on the Mount allowing

York, which must have put a crimp in their plans. However, the pressure
is now on to find a peace process that will allow for the next stage of

news reports follow:
Unmoved at UN Summit
Minister Ehud Barak took the world's stage yesterday at the UN Millennium
Summit and, after reiterating the centrality and importance of Jerusalem
to the Jewish people for the last 2,000 years, also acknowledged that
the city is "cherished by our Palestinian neighbors." "We recognize
that Jerusalem is also sacred to Moslems and Christians the world over,
and cherished by our Palestinian neighbors," Barak said. "A true
peace will reflect all these bonds." He pledged that "Jerusalem
will remain united and open to all who love her."
spokesman in the Prime Minister's Office said this marked the first
time that an Israeli leader acknowledged a Palestinian connection to
the capital in such terms. His gesture was not reciprocated by Palestinian
Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat, who accused Israel of trying to "Judaize"
the city and - although referring to it as the "cradle of Christ" and
the point of Mohammed's ascension to heaven - did not acknowledge any
Jewish connection to Jerusalem.
senior official said that it was still unclear what direction Arafat
was taking, but added they hoped that "within the next couple of days
the picture should become clearer." He said the parties were working
against a deadline of early October, when Congress adjourns and the
US public becomes focused on the election campaign.
Regarding his threat to unilaterally declare a state on September 13,
Arafat said the Palestinians had already delayed a declaration once
- in May 1999 - and are aware that there are many countries that are
advising against it now. The final decision, he said, will be made at
the Palestinian National Council meeting in Gaza over the weekend. Barak
sat impassively throughout Arafat's address.
was speculation that in his meeting with Arafat, Clinton would press
him to accept one of various plans that have recently been floated regarding
Jerusalem. One American plan on Jerusalem reportedly has the Palestinians
gaining sovereignty over Al-Aksa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock shrine,
Israel retaining sovereignty over the Old City's Jewish Quarter, and
the Western Wall, with the Temple Mount plaza under "God's sovereignty."
has so far rejected all proposals that give him anything less than complete
control of east Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Clinton said in a speech
opening the three-day UN Millennium Summit, where dozens of presidents
and prime ministers were scheduled to speak yesterday, that both Barak
and Arafat have pledged "to resolve the final differences between them
this year," and called on the international community to support the

presses for UN role on Temple Mount
is pushing an initiative to hand sovereignty on the Temple Mount to
permanent members of the UN Security Council, in the latest effort to
break through to a final status agreement with the Palestinians.
those involved are the governments of the United States and Egypt, who
proposed the idea, French President Jacques Chirac, and UN Secretary
General Kofi Annan.
During a long telephone conversation with the French President, Barak
explained that the Temple Mount issue was blocking the achievement of
a final status agreement with the Palestinians. He also emphasized that
the problem involved the unwillingness of the Palestinians and the Muslim
world to recognize the special claim the Jewish people historically
have on the Temple Mount. Barak said even the Western Wall is considered
holy for Islam, and Muslims are unwilling to recognize the rights of
Jews and Israel to the site, and will merely concede their right to
pray there. As a result, Barak said, Israel rejects out of hand the
claim of Palestinian chairman Yasser Arafat for Palestinian or Muslim
sovereignty over the Temple Mount.
prime minister told Chirac that in any future arrangement the status
quo over the holy sites would be preserved, and the Temple Mount would
remain in the hands of the Jerusalem waqf. Israel now believes bringing
the Temple Mount under the aegis of the international community could
be the best way to safeguard the rights and interests of both faiths,
while retaining the status quo on the ground.
Chirac and Israel's acting Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami met on Tuesday
for what appeared to be talks focused on the idea of international sovereignty
over the Temple Mount. The next day Chirac spoke with Chairman Yasser
Arafat and Annan on the telephone. The idea of international sovereignty
over the Temple Mount was first raised by U.S. President Bill Clinton
during the latter part of the Camp David Summit in July as one of several
possible options to solve the question of Jerusalem. Egypt later presented
an updated version of the idea, placing control in the hands of the
Security Council's five permanent members.

should be a unified world capital'
the eve of a last attempt by President Clinton to untangle the most
vexing problem in the Middle East - the status of Jerusalem - one of
Yasser Arafat's most trusted lieutenants said yesterday the Palestinians
would be willing to make bold compromises on their claims to the holy
city. In a speech to the European parliament in Strasbourg, Ahmed Qureia
said the Palestinians would support internationalising all of Jerusalem
- including Arab East Jerusalem.
we can reach an agreement on Jerusalem, I have to declare that both
parts of Jerusalem east and west should be a unified international Jerusalem
... not just the capital of Israel or Palestine, but a capital of the
world," said Mr Qureia, who is speaker of the Palestinian parliament.
proposal revives a formula put forward by the UN in 1947 and since repeatedly
rejected by Israel, and opposed by the Palestinians, though it still
remains part of European foreign policy.
Some Palestinians hope that yesterday's proposal from such a senior
figure as Mr Qureia, popularly known as Abu Ala and seen as a possible
successor to the ailing Mr Arafat - could relieve some of the pressure
on the Palestinian leader during his New York talks.
Abu Ala is trying to show that the Palestinian people are also ready
for concessions, but not one-sided, and not concessions to Israel. The
concession is to have a new kind of solution."
"Arafat's moment of truth has come and the Palestinian leader must make
political decisions rather than turn the negotiations into a bickering
match," the Israeli foreign ministry said on Monday. Instead, they are
trying to press Mr Arafat to accept a dispensation for Jerusalem, offered
since Camp David, that would dodge the question of ownership over the
sanctified ground in the old walled city by declaring God the sovereign
of holy places.
US version of these proposals would have Israel controlling the Wailing
Wall, the holiest shrine of Judaism, and the Palestinians in control
of the Haram al-Sharif, the third holiest site in Islam, with God the
sovereign of the passage between them.
Mr Barak fails to reach a deal with Mr Arafat, he may resort to a new
coalition with the rightwing Likud party, which opposes the compromises
he offered at Camp David. (Special

Barak and Arafat Plan Secret Meeting Near Gaza
Palestinian sources said that a meeting between Palestinian President
Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak is expected to be
held Monday (25th September). The sources, who asked not to be identified,
told United Press International that Arafat and Barak agreed to hold
the summit Monday evening after the mediation of US and Arab officials.
The sources, which did not say where the two leaders would meet, added
that it apparently would be at Erez Crossing on the northern tip of
the Gaza Strip.
met Sunday night in Gaza with his negotiating team during which it was
decided to hold the summit meeting. It will be the first for the two
leaders since the July Camp David marathon summit. He earlier received
a telephone call from US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright that
apparently has set the ground for the summit and the delegation's trip
to Washington. The US is preparing an initiative to break the deadlock
in the peace talks, but Palestinians have been demanding to discuss
it before it will be proposed. Abed Rabbo told Voice of Palestine radio
that even though a summit has been planned, there was nothing new proposed
that could break the deadlock in the peace process. "Whether there are
meetings here or there and at any level, our expectations are not high,"
he said. "We do not expect big results."
Palestinian official, who previously led the final status talks with
Israel, said the Palestinians will not accept a partial or another interim
agreement and that any solution should be comprehensive and includes
the complex issues of Jerusalem and refugees. He also stressed that
the Palestinians have not changed their position since Camp David that
calls for full Israeli withdrawal from all the territories it occupied
in 1967, including East Jerusalem. UPI September
