Prophecy Update #768 – If I Only Had A Brain

We read the Bible with a consistently literal interpretation.

We interpret the Bible according to the “plain meaning” conveyed by its grammatical construction and historical context.

One result of this approach is that we discover a lot of unfulfilled prophecies in God’s Word. The Book of the Revelation, for example, is all future to us beginning in chapter four and extending until the concluding exhortations in chapter 22.

We identify several prophetic topics that are predicted and we consider that the world will be trending in the direction of those prophetic topics.

  • The modern state of Israel has fulfilled, and is now fulfilling, centuries old prophecies.
  • Other trends we look for involve globalism, e.g., global government and a global economy; and instantaneous global communication.
  • We see technological advances in invasive surveillance and personal identification as setting the stage for the arrival of the world leader most commonly called the Antichrist.
  • With regard to him we are told an “image” of him will be created that has “breath,” i.e., “life.” We are told “the image of the [Antichrist] should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed” (Rev 13:15).

This previously absurd prophecy could today easily be fulfilled by Artificial Intelligence.

AI and robotics is growing at a rate that frightens its creators. I read an article this week titled, Scientists create biocomputer combining circuits with real human brain tissue. They’re calling it “a living machine.”


In what seems like a scene from a science-fiction movie, scientists from Indiana University have constructed a hybrid biocomputer that combines laboratory-grown human brain tissue with traditional circuits. This innovative technology, known as Brainoware, has the potential to integrate into artificial intelligence (AI) systems and advance neuroscience research models of the human brain.

Fox News reported, AI gives birth to AI: Scientists say machine intelligence now capable of replicating without humans.

Meanwhile “a factory planning to pump out 10,000 two-legged robots a year is taking shape in Salem, Oregon, the better to help amazon and other giant companies with dangerous hauling, lifting and moving.

The robot, called Digit, is 5’9″ and 140 pounds, and can walk over and plug itself in when it needs to recharge.

I am not saying that AI is going to be what gives the image of the Antichrist “breath.” But you can see how it could.

We live in the Church Age, between the first coming of Jesus and His return to establish and rule the Kingdom of God on earth. His return will be preceded by a seven year time of incredible trouble upon the earth. Most commonly it is called the Great Tribulation, but the prophet Jeremiah calls it the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. It is a reminder that God will use that time to reveal Himself to unbelieving Israel. By the end of the seven years all Israel will be saved.

Jesus promised His Church, “I… will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth” (Revelation 3:10).

He keeps us entirely out of the 7yr Great Tribulation by raising deceased Church Age saints, then rapturing “we who are alive and remain.”

When? The return of the Lord for us is imminent. It could happen any time. Nothing needs to occur before Jesus can come for us.

Are you ready for the rapture? If not, Get ready; Stay ready; Keep looking up.

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
