We focus on Bible prophecy each week for about five-minutes, calling it a “Prophecy Update.”

The Bible is about 30% prophecy. There are approximately 500 prophecies awaiting literal fulfillment. We contend that, since we are living in the Last Days, trends in the world should be predictable based on what the Bible says is going to happen.

In the Revelation of Jesus Christ, there is a strange prediction about an image that seems to come to life. It’s in chapter thirteen. We are first introduced to two “beasts,” who are identified as the Antichrist and his companion, a false prophet.

Re 13:14 And he [the false prophet] deceives those who dwell on the earth – by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast [the antichrist], telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
Rev 13:15  He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.

A few years ago, this seemed outrageous. Today, it sounds like Artificial Intelligence, or AI for short.

The most recent article I read was titled, Terminally-ill scientist completes transformation into ‘world’s first full cyborg.’

Excerpts:

A terminally-ill British scientist dying from a muscle wasting disease says he has fully completed his transition into the world’s first full cyborg – called Peter 2.0.

Dr Peter Scott-Morgan, 61, decided to challenge what it meant to be human when he refused to accept his fate following a diagnosis of motor neurone disease in 2017.

He said he wanted to push the boundaries of what science can achieve so decided to extend his life and become fully robotic.

And this week the world-renowned roboticist returned to his home in Torquay, Devon, after 24 days in Intensive Care, with all medical procedures now complete and able to begin his re-booted life.
But the evolution of his machine-like existence doesn’t end there – and he joked he had more upgrades scheduled than Microsoft.

The world-renowned roboticist has had to undergo a series of incredibly complex and risky operations during his journey. This has included developing a remarkably life-like avatar of his face before he lost any muscle. The avatar is designed to respond using artificially intelligent body language and he has also explored eye-tracking technology to enable him to control multiple computers using only his eyes.

And the final procedure in his robot transition saw him successfully trade his voice for potentially decades of life.

He underwent a laryngectomy, meaning he lost his physical voice, but in doing so, he will avoid the added danger of saliva potentially entering his lungs, due to his condition.

Dr Scott-Morgan had previously labelled this treatment as the end of Peter 1.0 and the start of Peter 2.0. Speaking of his transition on his website, he said: “When I say ‘Peter 2.0’, I mean ‘a Cyborg.’

“And when I say ‘Cyborg,’ I don’t just mean any old cyborg, you understand, but by far the most advanced human cybernetic organism ever created in 13.8 billion years.”

It is as expected from reading your Bible.

Jesus promised He’d return to rapture His church – which entails the resurrection of the dead in Christ of the Church Age, then the translation from earth to Heaven of all living believers.

It is presented in the Bible as an imminent (any-moment) event.

Are you ready for the rapture? If not, get ready, stay ready, and keep looking up. Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
