Prophecy Update #725 – I Fought The L.A.W.S.

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven year Great Tribulation.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ predicts that during the Great Tribulation, every person on the planet will participate in a global socioeconomic system by means of a personal identifier on or in them. In the Revelation, the apostle John called it, “the Mark of the Beast.” Once it is implemented, government will be able to exercise totalitarian control over the population.

Let me give you an example. California legislators are obsessed with Electric vehicles. They can be limited, monitored, controlled – even switched ‘off’ remotely. Restrictions will be made for our health, safety, but especially to reduce our carbon footprint. We will lose the right to choose where we want to got, and when. It will remove all freedom from driving.

I want to point-out something more serious.

The Beast in the Revelation will ultimately have the power and ability to kill anyone who does not swear allegiance to him.

We expect government to be moving in the direction of more control over its citizens, and to be developing remote means to use lethal force.

It is happening in San Francisco.

One article was titled, Real-Life RoboCops Join The San Francisco PD – And They Can Legally Kill People!

Excerpts:

Eleven years after Arnold Schwarzenegger served as the governor of California, the San Francisco Police Department has a fleet of robots ready for deployment. These robots are cable of deadly force according to multiple sources. Theses are both Robocops and Terminators![1]

One journalist commented, “In Isaac Asimov’s breakthrough novel ‘I, Robot,’ robots achieved sentience, and despite being made to serve humans, started hunting them down. This could soon turn into reality, and it’s starting from San Francisco.”

Borrowing their name from the Terminator franchise, the website, skynettoday.com, “puts AI news in perspective.” They say,

Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems (LAWS) can take many forms. The common thread pulling LAWS together is lethal autonomy: the ability for these weapons to select and engage with objects, including people or military targets, without human help.

With AI and robotics technology rapidly advancing, experts are warning that so-called ‘killer robots’ are just years, not decades, away. To date no country has deployed LAWS to the battlefield, although at least a dozen are developing them and the technology is advanced enough to do so.[2]

Another website, lethalautonomous.org, states on their home page, “Slaughterbots are here. The era in which algorithms decide who lives and who dies is upon us.”

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven-year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible.

We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age. He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.

We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

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

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!

Prophecy Update #724 – Digital Dictators

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven-year Great Tribulation.

The last book of the Bible, the Revelation, is mostly future prophecy. The granddaddy is the Mark of the Beast:

Rev 13:16  … all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave… receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
Rev 13:17  … no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast [antichrist], or the number of his name.

We live at the time in the only time in human history in which it is possible for a universal ‘mark’ to identify every person on Earth. That by itself should stun you.

The Mark, whatever it will be, will render a person a global citizen under totalitarian control. We would therefore expect world leaders to be moving in the direction of global government that strips citizens of their rights. That is precisely the path world leaders are on.

In an video excerpt from the World Economic Forum, the presenter said, “Developing through technology an ability for consumers to measure their own carbon footprint. That’s where they are traveling, how are they traveling, what are they eating, what are they consuming. Individual Carbon Footprint Tracker. Stay tuned, we don’t have it operational yet, but it’s something we’re working on.”

At first, this is just an app for you to download because you would like to help the environment. But eventually, the government will step in and mandate compliance as they track your behavior.

Leaders at the G20 summit have just signed a declaration that states that vaccine passports will be adopted to facilitate all international travel. This means any vaccination the WHO determines you should have will be required or you cannot travel.

This isn’t a globalist conspiracy. This is what they are doing right now in the open.[1]

The control over buying & selling suggests a global, universal payment system that has eliminated paper money & coins. We describe it by saying future commerce will be cashless.

Digital currency is coming fast. investopedia.com reported, “The Biden administration is moving closer to developing a digital currency for the US, saying it will help strengthen the nation’s role as a global financial leader. It has released a framework outlining the regulation of digital assets, including cryptocurrency and other items of value that exist only in digital form. To make digital transactions easier, the framework suggests the creation of a US central bank digital currency, or CBDC, essentially a central band for a digital form of the US dollar.”[2]

Another article was titled, NY Fed Launches Digital Dollar Pilot Program With Big Banks.

Excerpts:

Nine U.S. financial institutions, including Citibank, Wells Fargo, and Mastercard launched a pilot program working with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to test the feasibility of a digital dollar.

The list of participants in the pilot program includes BNY Mellon, Citi, HSBC, Mastercard, PNC Bank, TD Bank, Truist, US Bank, and Wells Fargo. Global payments provider Swift is also participating in the effort, along with the New York Innovation Center (NYIC), part of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

The article went on to say, “Other countries have made headway in digital currency development, most notably China. China has tested its digital yuan in several provinces, and the currency is even available to users on the popular app, WeChat.[3]

Personal identifier… Individual tracking of human behavior… Digital dollar… Global economy. They could all be in place overnight.

Listen to this terrifying quote from Ida Auken, a member of the Danish Parliament:

“Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been better” (Posted on the WEF twitter page).

There is so much news about these things it is becoming harder and harder to edit for these updates.

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible.

We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age. He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.

We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

Prophecy Update #723 – Gamblers AI

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

Rev 13:17  … no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast [antichrist], or the number of his name.

We live at the time in the only time in human history in which it is possible for a universal ‘mark’ to control a person’s every behavior.

Case in point. I read an article titled, Australia bets on facial recognition for problem gamblers.

Excerpts:

As guests arrive at eastern Australia’s Warilla Hotel, a small camera equipped with facial recognition software scans their faces as part of a scheme to tackle problem gambling.

The tech – which uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to identify addicts who have asked to be barred from betting sites – is set to be rolled out across gambling venues in the state of New South Wales next year.

Supporters say it will help curb problem gambling in a country where the addiction affects about 1% of the population and annual losses run to billions of dollars.

Facial recognition technology is increasingly used for everything from unlocking mobile phones to checking in for flights. It has also been adopted by some police forces.[1]

It is voluntary until it isn’t. Once there is no paper currency, and your money is digital, the government can control any behavior it deems necessary for the greater good. Everything will require approval.

We’ve seen some of this as governments mandated certain behaviors for the pandemic. Science took a backseat to government. And for saying that, if we lived in the total digital age, the government could shut me down with the push of a button.

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible. We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age. He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.

We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

Prophecy Update #722 – AI, AI, O My!

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven year Great Tribulation.

The Mark of the Beast is easily the best known of the future prophecies. It will be some kind of personal identifier that will allow the global population to participate in society. We’re witnessing a push towards a digital, global society that sounds similar. One reporter commented, “Imagine if eating habits determined education choices, your vocation options, leisure options, your entrepreneurial ambition, your dating appeal, your income, mobility, and even your ability to protest or engage in activism.” That is the cashless future.

The Beast is a reference to the coming world leader commonly called the antichrist. At the mid-point of the seven year Great Tribulation, the Beast will demand everyone swear allegiance to him, worship him. Those who won’t will be cut-off from society, and they will be killed.

The way they will be killed is weird. An associate of the antichrist, called the second Beast, “[tells] those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the [antichrist]… 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” (Revelation 13:14&15).

It sounds a lot like Artificial Intelligence, AI for short. Thus we expect advances in AI, and boy, are there ever things going on in that field. Scary things.

One article I read was titled, Chilling AI development means that robots can now talk to animals – and we might be able to next.

Excerpts:

Humans are one step closer to talking to animals as new technologies are allowing AI enabled robots to speak with different species. 

Karen Bakker, a professor at the University of British Columbia, recently revealed this technology is being used to communicate with honeybees, dolphins and elephants, and offered up a warning regarding the development.

She pointed to the use of artificial intelligence to communicate with honeybees in Germany. “A research team in Germany encoded honeybee signals into a robot that they sent into a hive,” Bakker said. “That robot is able to use the honeybees’ waggle dance communication to tell the honeybees to stop moving, and it’s able to tell those honeybees where to fly to for a specific nectar source.”

The next stage in this research is to implant these robots into honeybee hives so the hives accept these robots as members of their community from birth.”

At that point, Bakker emphasized that humans would have “an unprecedented degree of control” over those hives, basically “domesticating” them. 

“This creates the possibility of exploitive use of animals. And there’s a long history of the military use of animals, so that’s one path that I think raises a lot of alarm bells,” she said. 

The ability to speak to other species sounds intriguing and fascinating, but it could be used either to create a deeper sense of kinship, or a sense of dominion and manipulative ability to domesticate wild species that we’ve never as humans been able to previously control,” Bakker said.[1]

Another article was titled, Scientists Increasingly Can’t Explain How AI Works.

Excerpts:

AI researchers are warning developers to focus more on how and why a system produces certain results than the fact that the system can accurately and rapidly produce them. 

Roman V. Yampolskiy, a professor of computer science at the University of Louisville, wrote in his paper titled Unexplainability and Incomprehensibility of Artificial Intelligence, “If we grow accustomed to accepting AI’s answers without an explanation, we would not be able to tell if it begins providing wrong or manipulative answers.”

The risks are that the system may be making decisions using values we disagree with, such as biased (e.g. racist or sexist) decisions. Another risk is that the system may be making a very bad decision, but we cannot intervene because we do not understand its reasoning,” said Jeff Clune, an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. 

AI systems are already deeply entrenched with bias and are constantly reproducing such bias in their output without developers understanding how.[2]

AI could empower the Image of the Beast, and it would have the means to find and kill anyone who will not worship him.

I am not saying AI is what John saw.

I’m just reading my Bible and seeing technology that sounds a lot like what is coming.

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible. We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age. He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.

We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

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

Prophecy Update #721 – Putin The Exorcist

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven-year Great Tribulation.

Newsweek posted an article titled, Putin Appointed ‘Chief Exorcist’ as Kremlin Whips up Satanic Panic.

Excerpts:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been named “chief exorcist” by the head of the country’s Orthodox Church as the Kremlin seeks to redefine the goals of its invasion of Ukraine.

Aleksey Pavlov, assistant secretary of the security council of the Russian Federation, is now calling for the “desatanization” of Ukraine, saying that there were “hundreds of sects” in the country where citizens have abandoned Orthodox values.

“I believe that, with the continuation of the special military operation, it becomes more and more urgent to carry out the desatanization of Ukraine,” Pavlov said, according to state-run Russian news agency Tass.

“Using internet manipulation and psychotechnologies, the new regime turned Ukraine from a sovereign state to a totalitarian hypersect,” said Pavlov.

Pavlov said he is particularly concerned about the “Church of Satan,” which allegedly “spread across Ukraine” and “is one of the officially registered religions in the United States.”

He said that the Kiev government is forcing citizens to abandon Orthodox values, and is working to “reformat” the minds of Ukrainian citizens, to force them to abandon centuries-old traditions, to ban the true values that the Orthodox faith, Islam and Judaism carry.

When Putin said in September that he had annexed four territories in Ukraine following sham referendums, he accused Western nations of “outright Satanism.”

Since then, the term has been used more frequently on Russian state TV, while Putin’s staunch ally, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, has branded the conflict as a holy war against Satanism.

Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, called Putin “a fighter against the Antichrist.”

Kirill said that Putin is fighting against the manifestation of globalism, and “the name of the one who will claim global power will be associated with the end of the world.”[1]

The Great Tribulation is presented in detail in chapters six through nineteen in the Revelation. In chapter thirteen we are told that Satan “gave [the antichrist] his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the [antichrist]. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the [antichrist]; and they worshiped the [antichrist], saying, “Who is like the [antichrist]? Who is able to make war with him?” And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.
Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.”

The antichrist will be aided by a character we call the false prophet. He “performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth – by those signs which he was granted to do.”

When was the last time a conflict was described as a holy war, with Satanic influences, involving the antichrist and the end of the world?

I’m not suggesting that Putin is the antichrist, or that the head of the Russian Orthodox Church is the false prophet. I am saying that the rhetoric coming out of Russia is not at all unusual in the prophetic light of the Book of the Revelation. We expect religion and politics to be in tandem during that awful time.

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible. We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age. He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies. We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

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

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!

Prophecy Update #720 – Keeping Score

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven year Great Tribulation.

The Mark of the Beast is described in the Revelation as, “a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

The totalitarian, global government of the antichrist will enforce its mandates by restricting what a person can buy or sell. This will affect every aspect of life.

We have been trending that way for some time. The COVID19 pandemic revealed how easy it is for government to mandate the behaviors they deem necessary, without regard to human rights. Almost overnight, there were only two groups of people in the world – the vaxed and the unvaxed. One was rewarded, one was punished.

It is a form of what is called social credit. You are rewarded for obeying mandates, but restricted and punished for disobeying.

Our own government is experimenting with other ways to implement social credit in order to control citizens. I read an article titled, Federal Reserve announces social credit system ‘exercise’ to ensure banks comply with ‘climate’ models.

Excerpts:  

The Federal Reserve has taken a major step in the direction of facilitating an ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) compliant monetary network that effectively acts as a parallel system to that of the Chinese Communist Party’s infamous social credit scoring system.

The banks involved in this pilot program are Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, and Wells Fargo.

Of course, it’s just a scenario, until it’s not. The Fed pilot program is set to launch in early 2023.[1]

The opinion of the writer is, “The Fed is working with the big banks to monitor their ability to comply with the ruling class’s preferred enviro technocratic tyranny.”

Another article said,

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics are a kind of social credit system designed to coerce businesses – and, by extension, individuals and all of society – to transform their practices. Investors and banks (and soon governments) use ESG to push businesses to change how they function, regardless of what the employees and customers of those businesses want.[2]

In a nutshell, the government will mandate major changes in the way people live, and citizens will be forced to comply or be assigned a low social credit score as punishment. Their low score will severely restrict normal life.

During the seven years of the Great Tribulation, a person’s social credit score will reflect whether or not they have sworn allegiance to the antichrist. If they have not, they will be cut off from buying or selling, or traveling, and eventually they will be murdered.

No one knows how all this will pan out. All I am saying is that social credit is exactly what you expect from reading biblical prophecy.

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible. We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age.
He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.

We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

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

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!

Prophecy Update #719 – Governor Dominator

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven year Great Tribulation.

It is abundantly clear in chapters six through nineteen of the Revelation that the government of the Great Tribulation will be global and authoritarian.

The antichrist will have technology to identify everyone on the planet, track and dictate their movements, restrict or allow what they can purchase, and otherwise control their lives. He will posses the technology to eliminate people.

You would expect more-and-more to see the erosion of human rights, more invasive surveillance, and outright efforts to control our decisions and lives.

PayPal had to back-peddle after they announced new terms of use allow the company to confiscate up to $2,500 from your account if it finds you guilty of spreading “misinformation.” It shows you where we are headed in an increasingly digital world. It’s a form of Social Credit, by which you are punished for not being totally in agreement with whatever the powers that be deem correct.

Edmonton police are using DNA to generate 3D images of suspects they’ve never seen. They shared a computer generated image of a suspect they created with DNA phenotyping, which it used for the first time in hopes of identifying a suspect from a 2019 case. Using DNA evidence collected at the scene, a company called Parabon NanoLabs created the image of a young black man.

The composite image did not factor in the suspect’s age, BMI, or environmental factors, such as facial hair, tattoos, and scars. They released this image to the public, both on its website and on social media platforms including its Twitter, claiming it to be “a last resort after all investigative avenues have been exhausted.”[1]

A Colorado town has announced it will start using solar powered robots to track its own citizens’ movements apparently without any regard for privacy rights. 

The town of Lafayette will be soon be using stationary automatic license plate readers according to a new report by CBS Denver. 

“They take vehicle and license information, in an effort to locate stolen cars or people with warrants. Police say no speed information is collected,” according to the news report. 

The readers also collect information on everyday Coloradans who have committed no crime and are under no suspicion of committing any crime according to the ACLU of Colorado.[2] 

California Governor Gavin Newsom, Oregon Governor Kate Brown, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and British Columbia Premier John Horgan “doubled down” on Thursday and signed a new Statement of Cooperation, another climate agreement – the Pacific Coast Collaborative –“recommitting” the Western region “to climate action.”

“This is not about electric power, it’s about economic power,” Newsom said. “This is about dominating a big global industry. Electric vehicles are a trillion dollar industry. We’re not going to cede that to other jurisdictions, other parts of the globe. We want to dominate that.”

In an Op-Ed article, the reporter commented, “So it’s not really about saving the planet, or the United States, or California; nor is it really about ‘extreme weather.’
But it is about government dominating an industry. Newsom said it aloud in this press conference.”

The overall goal of Newsom’s “sweeping” climate change package is “Achieving net zero GHG emissions” in the state. To do this California needs to address and change and completely alter electricity, buildings, transportation, industry, agriculture and land use… according to the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions. “Twenty-nine percent of US greenhouse gas emissions come from generating electricity. Most of the electricity is used in our homes, offices, and factories to power everything from heating and cooling systems to lights, computers, refrigerators, and cell phones,” they say.[3]

So pretty much everything we use in modern society needs to be upended, overhauled, restricted, and repurposed.

No one knows how all this will pan out. All I am saying is that these are the trends you expect from reading biblical prophecy.

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible. We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age.

He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies. We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

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

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!

Prophecy Update #718 – Survival Of The AI-ist

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven year Great Tribulation.

There is an intriguing passage in the Revelation about a statue, a guy we call the false prophet, and the Beast, which is another name of the antichrist.
Apparently an image of the Beast is going to come to “life”:

Rev 13:14 And [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, 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.

It sounds a lot like what we would call Artificial Intelligence; AI for short. The world is definitely trending towards more intelligent and more powerful AI.

I read an article titled, AI Trends 2022.

Excerpts:

In 2022, artificial intelligence will have progressed far enough to become the most revolutionary technology ever created by man. According to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, its impact on our evolution as a species will be comparable to fire and electricity. The mere fact that we are already utilizing it to assist us in addressing climate change, exploring space, and developing cancer therapies is enough to show the potential.[1]

Another article used the concept of evolution. It was titled, Artificial intelligence is evolving all by itself. In the article is this frightening statement:

Artificial intelligence (AI) is evolving – literally. Researchers have created software that borrows concepts from Darwinian evolution, including “survival of the fittest,” to build AI programs that improve generation after generation without human input.[2]

AI that evolves on its own, using a survival of the fittest paradigm. Especially as we are weaponizing AI controlled devices.

For example, Israel has installed an AI-powered gun at West Bank checkpoint as riot control. Currently it shoots non-lethal rubber bullets.

China released a terrifying video showing a drone carrying beneath it an armed robot dog. After the drone drops the robot on the roof, it simply flies away.

Think of how that might affect the next reboot of the movie, Red Dawn.

The robodog then stands up from its folded position and starts investigating its new location with what looks to be a Chinese QBB-97 light machine gun on its back. They are being called “war dogs descending from the sky.”

Back in April, robot dogs were used to ‘bark’ COVID19 safety measures in Shanghai, China. 

With a loudspeaker strapped to its back, the robodog tells residents in the city’s Jiading district to “wear a mask, wash hands frequently, and check your temperature,” amid COVID19 restrictions.”

Those robodogs could as easily be carrying QBB-97’s.

Put it this way: Weaponized AI robots evolving on their own with the Darwinian mandate Survival of the Fittest. What could go wrong?

Let’s reel this in a little. All I am saying is that AI is a trend you expect from reading a 2000 year old biblical prophecy.

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible. We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age.

He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies. We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

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

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!

Prophecy Update #717 – Cloudy With A Chance Of Globalism

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the definite fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven year Great Tribulation.

Students of Bible prophecy have long argued that the government of the Great Tribulation will be some sort of global union, eventually controlled by the antichrist.

Global government means that all the nations of the world surrender their sovereignty to a collective group of leaders.

What would it take for that to happen? The leading candidate today is Climate Change, which is more frequently being described as the Climate Crisis.

I came across this quote: “We must plan for the global demographic reshuffling brought on by climate change.” Those are the words of Dr. Paragh Khanna. He is founder & managing partner of FutureMap. He advises many governments and corporations around the world and serves on the boards of numerous financial institutions and technology companies.

Dr. Khanna said, “We’re accelerating into a future shaped less by countries than by connectivity. Mankind has a new maxim – Connectivity is destiny – and the most connected powers, and people, will win.”

Regarding Climate Change, the Dr. believes that, “As climate change tips toward full-blown crisis, economies collapse, governments destabilize, and technology disrupts, we’re entering a new age of mass migrations – one that will scatter both the dispossessed and the well-off. Which areas will people abandon and where will they resettle? As today’s world population, which includes four billion restless youth, votes with their feet, what map of human geography will emerge?”

He talks about “climate population resettlement,” by which I think he wants the map of the world and its nations to be decided by climate issues, not national sovereignty. The growing awareness of climate risk will make the current top-performing geographies less desirable to live in and invest in. Put bluntly, people need to be resettled based on what the planet is doing.

In a previous Update, we talked about the powerful World Economic Forum’s (WEF) excitement at how easily governments were able to impose far-reaching restrictions on the global population on account of COVID19.

They openly reveal that they will use Climate Change to create a New World Order.

Former vice-president Al Gore, now a climate warrior, said, “When every night on the TV news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation, that builds demands for meaningful action.”

David Malpass is president of the World Bank Group. He was asked whether he agreed with the scientific consensus that the “manmade burning of fossil fuels is rapidly and dangerously warming the planet.”

He replied, “I don’t even know. I’m not a scientist.”

His remarks prompted an outcry from environmentalists, including Al Gore, who called Malpass a “climate denier.” Twenty-seven House Democrats have joined a growing chorus of voices calling for his resignation. He recanted, acknowledging the “climate crisis.”

Whether or not there is science supporting Climate Change, the world’s leaders promote climate crisis. And they don’t want dissent on it, or any other global policies.

The prime minister of New Zealand said world leaders “cannot ignore” the “threat” posed by unregulated political discourse online. She advocates free speech, so long as it is in agreement with the government.

Climate Change may well be the issue that will lead the nations of the world to surrender their sovereignty to a global government with the goal of saving the planet.

Centuries ago, the Bible predicted the Last Day’s global government. Using climate change, pandemics, and other disasters, real or imagined, the push towards globalism is on. It is exactly what we expected.

We are witnessing the stage-setting for the seven year Great Tribulation that is described in the last book of the Bible. We will not, however, be on Earth during that terrible Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age.

He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies. We will join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

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

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!

Prophecy Update #716 – Green Trifecta

The only way to make sense of what is happening around the world today is to know what is going to happen tomorrow. God has seen fit to tell us a great many things about the future. There are hundreds of yet-to-be fulfilled prophecies in the Bible.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by a literal, futurist reading of the Bible.

To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.

We’re not saying the things we report are the definite fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven year Great Tribulation.

Students of Bible prophecy have long argued that the government of the Great Tribulation will be some sort of global union, eventually controlled by the antichrist.

Global government means that all the nations of the world must surrender their sovereignty to a collective group of leaders. It isn’t such a crazy idea anymore. It’s happening.

We’ve talked about the World Economic Forum (WEF) many times. It is a group of by-invitation-only elitists who are pressing global governing of the planet.

On their website you can read for yourself, ‘My Carbon’: An approach for inclusive and sustainable cities. The article highlights three developments over the last five years.

✏ One development is what is the Fourth Industrial Revolution. They write, “Advances in emerging technologies like AI, can enable tracking personal carbon emissions, raise awareness and also provide individual advisories on lower carbon and ethical choices for consumption of product and services. There have been major advances in smart home technologies, transport choices with carbon implications, the roll-out of smart meters in providing individual choices to reduce their energy-related emissions, the development of new personalized apps to account for personal emissions, and better personal choices for food and consumption-related emissions.

What they just said is that the technology exists to track your personal carbon emissions with the goal of reducing them. Do you think for a minute that if they have the ability to do so, they would not force you to reduce your carbon footprint? Perhaps by controlling what you can buy and sell based on their tracking?

✏ The second development they present is raised awareness about the climate crisis. “Over 64% of people believe climate change is a global emergency. A new Pew Research Center survey in seventeen advanced economies found widespread concern about the personal impact of global climate change. 80% of citizens say they are willing to change how they live and work to combat the effects of climate change.

Young adults, who have been at the forefront of some of the most prominent climate change protests in recent years, are more concerned than their older counterparts about the personal impact of a warming planet in many public surveys.

What they just said is that the younger generation is convinced that Climate Change is a global crisis that must be addressed by surrender of personal liberties for the greater good.

✏ Then they said this:

“COVID-19 was the test of social responsibility. A huge number of unimaginable restrictions for public health were adopted by billions of citizens across the world. There were numerous examples globally of maintaining social distancing, wearing masks, mass vaccinations and acceptance of contact-tracing applications for public health, which demonstrated the core of individual social responsibility.”

https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2022/09/my-carbon-an-approach-for-inclusive-and-sustainable-cities/

What they just said is that people all over the world can be forced to obey ‘unimaginable restrictions’ of their rights and privacy if they are convinced there is a global crisis that demands it, because they see it as their individual responsibility to the planet.

One editorialist wrote, “The trifecta is government power combined with technology combined with brainwashing young people.”

Climate Change may well be the issue that will lead the nations of the world to surrender their sovereignty to a global government with the goal of saving the planet.

BTW: I should mention that I am not really talking about climate change, per se. I am not saying that it is real, or that it is manufactured. That’s why I’m not telling you about the just released study by a group of Italian scientists that concluded, “There’s a lack of scientific data to support the view that the world is currently experiencing a climate crisis.”
