And by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.

Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. 9No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God.
[1 John 3:8-9]
Part 3 of our Convergence Series addresses the integration of genetic engineering, modification and alteration in Satan’s evil scheme to seduce the entire world to take his genetic signature (or name) and the number of his name (digital code) — the unique genetic markers of the Beast.

But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.“
There is a multifaceted convergence taking place in our day that is being fueled by trans-humanistic aspirations, especially the desire to transition humanity into a new age of post-human existence.
For the first time in modern history, the technology is available and the spirit of the age is ripe for the initiation of this ancient alternative path to immortality. The convergence is transpiring right before our eyes.

Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, showing himself to be God.
[2 Thessalonians 2:3-4]
The theological thread of the Serpent and his seed runs through the pages of Scripture from beginning to end. This rival dichotomy remains in view from the day the LORD declared war on the Dragon in the garden and cast him out of God’s holy mountain [see Ezekiel 28, Isaiah 14] until the day the Son of Man will come once again to crush Satan and remove his own son from Mt. Zion — Jerusalem — the City of the Great King.
In my previous posts in this series — see Post here and also here — I delved into the rebellion of the watchers [aka sons of heaven] and their unsanctioned procreation of hybrid offspring, who became the mighty kings of the antediluvian age.
I established how this particular faction of 200 watchers — according to 1 Enoch — descended upon Mt. Hermon in the days of Jared to take human wives and attempt to rule the earth by proxy through their giant offspring.
The rebel sons of God were shown no mercy by the LORD of hosts and were cast into prison — held in chains in the darkest depths of the abyss until the great day of God’s judgment. Enoch provides the insights, context, and theological backdrop to the severity of God’s unique punishment of the watchers — making examples of the fallen sons of God who once were royal members of the heavenly household. These “angels” who sinned in the days of Noah were cast into the pit [Tartarus] for their transgression.
And while it is written that the devil and his angels ultimately will share the same fate as the rebel watchers at the end of this age, it is equally apparent that the devil and his faction of angelic princes have not yet been bound in the least but obviously are still operating in both heavenly places and behind the evil empires of the earth.
Since Satan and other fallen angelic princes were not bound with the watchers before the flood, it stands to reason that the Serpent did not commit the same forbidden act of taking human wives and procreating offspring with them. In other words, Satan did not participate in the watchers unsanctioned rebellion.
At least … not yet.
Move — Counter Move
Satan is shrewd in this cosmic game of thrones and realized that his only chance to avoid his own judgment was to eliminate the seed of the woman before the Messiah was ever born, which is precisely what the watchers almost did in the days of Noah.
It is also just as likely that the Serpent initially planted the seeds of this rebellion in the minds of the watchers and persuaded them to abandon their proper domain and openly defy the universal laws governing God’s creative order. It’s not like the rebellion of the watchers wouldn’t be to his advantage — it certainly was — but at the same time the devil was able to avoid personal implication or guilt by association — buying himself valuable time to work out his own agenda.
Satan has opted to play the long game and take every conceivable path to position himself with an opportunity to devour the seed of the woman [Revelation 12:1-6]. After generations of making war with the offspring of Abraham, Isaac, Israel, Judah and David, Satan was waiting on the day Messiah was born to a virgin daughter of Eve. He was working through Herod to murder all the young boys in Bethlehem. He was tempting Yeshua in the wilderness to abandon His ordained mission. He was leading the chief priests of Israel and the Sanhedrin in the conspiracy to commit murder.
And eventually Satan took matters into his own hands by entering Judas himself — the son of perdition — to finish the inside job and ensure that the the Son of God was nailed to the cross. And yet only if Satan and the rulers of this age had known what they were doing, they never would have crucified the Lord of Glory! For in conspiring to kill God’s Beloved Son they literally were fulfilling God’s redemptive plan and sealing their own fates before the courts of heaven.
Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. 7But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. 8None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9But, as it is written,“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.”
[1 Corinthians 2:6-9]
But it already was too late, before the sun could rise on the first day of the week, the Son of God would be resurrected in power on the third day — immortal, invincible — overcoming the powers of darkness, conquering death and the grave, destroying the works of the devil, and delivering a crushing blow to the Dragon.
The Coming Hybrid Son of Satan
Once Satan saw that He could not kill the Son of God, he has been on a relentless war path, leaving a destructive trail of blood and tears in his wake, while at the same time whispering his lies into the ears of mankind and dragging as many down to hell with him as he possibly can.
The Dragon knows — better than anyone — that his appointed time is coming and that his time is short, and his skull will be crushed by the Son of God at His Second Coming.
The coming great tribulation at the end of this age will be the point in the coming future when Satan will no longer be able to prolong the inevitability of Christ’s return and his subsequent judgment, and he will act on every machination of his demented mind — holding nothing back and eventually launching an all out assault against the LORD and His Anointed.
With nothing to lose, Satan will combine every conceivable power at his disposal to resist the certain return of King Jesus from heaven to reclaim Planet Earth, much like the watchers attempted to do before the flood.
The Dragon and his alliance of 10 rebel princes will once again descend to the earth in godlike fashion offering irresistible knowledge to mankind, and having produced and prepared their own offspring as 10 hybrid kings to govern their end-times empire, the entire world will be enamored with the Beast and will worship the Dragon and deny the God of heaven.
Satan, being supreme in wisdom and more powerful than all the other evil princes will install his own human/hybrid son on the throne to rule them all — giving all power and all authority to this man of sin. The 10 rebel princes in league with the Dragon eventually will transfer all their authority to the Dragon and his seed [see Revelation 17:12-14].
The antichrist will come as the counterfeit savior of mankind in supernatural fashion — fully demonstrating himself to be “god” with many intoxicating signs and wonders. The son of Satan will convince millions to take his own genetic signature and receive his mark, which permanently perverts the genetic integrity of the human race and seals the souls of the ungodly to suffer the same condemnation in hell as the devil and his angels.
Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’
Satan and his hybrid son will again seek to either transform humanity into their own perverse image or eliminate humanity altogether. Either way, Satan will be on a kamikaze mission to face Jesus in an all out war of cosmic proportions, doing as much damage as possible to the very end. Yeshua reminds us that if those days were not cut short, no human being would survive, and yet for the sake of the elect, Christ will come in flaming fire to wage war on the son of Satan and his armies and will once and for all decimate his evil empire on that great Day of vengeance.
Bound for Tartarus
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. 2And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, 3and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while.
Before it is all said and done, Satan will have committed the same grievous abomination of the watchers by leaving his proper domain, inducing lawlessness in the earth, illicitly procreating his own hybrid son, all the while blaspheming the God of heaven to His face. Satan will take as similar path as the watchers and will suffer a similar fate.
And just as we would expect, what is the Dragon’s punishment? He and his co-conspirators will be bound in chains of gloomy darkness in the depths of the same bottomless pit for 1,000 years. The devil and his angels will be bound with the watchers for the final day of judgment when they all will be cast into the lake of fire burning forever.
The earth shall be utterly empty and utterly plundered; for the LORD has spoken this word.The earth mourns and withers; the world languishes and withers; the highest people of the earth languish. 5The earth lies defiled under its inhabitants; for they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant. 6Therefore a curse devours the earth, and its inhabitants suffer for their guilt; therefore the inhabitants of the earth are scorched, and few men are left.
On that day the LORD will punish the host of heaven, in heaven, and the kings of the earth, on the earth.22They will be gathered together as prisoners in a pit; they will be shut up in a prison, and after many days they will be punished.23Then the moon will be confounded and the sun ashamed, for the LORD of hosts reigns on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and his glory will be before his elders.
For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, 6and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.
[2 Peter 3:5-6]
The naturalist envisions modern man atop the evolutionary family tree — a more advanced version of his ancient ancestors. We have crossed technological thresholds beyond the limits of our primitive past and the intellectual inferiority of our forefathers; therefore, man must be at the apex of his existence.
The naturalist arrogantly assumes that the marvelous technological achievements of our age have never been matched or reproduced in the vastness of our past. This willful blindness precludes an alternative view of history and ignorantly narrows science and life itself into a purely materialistic framework.
The Biblical witness of the great global flood not only answers the questions about the natural condition of our planet, but also it further unlocks the deeper mysteries of universe — such as the nature of God, the human soul, and the spiritual realm filled with an innumerable host of heavenly beings — both good and evil — who war behind a veil that we cannot yet perceive.
Which is why faith is being certain of what you cannot see. Even though we naturally do not see this parallel world peering from behind the glass darkly, the Bible provides a glimpse behind the veil where we can “see” the other side through faith in God’s word. Not everything can be explained by the laws of nature. There is a supernatural realm beyond the limits of our world. Once you acknowledge the reality of the supernatural and the spiritual nature of man, you render the Darwinian paradigm dead and left to rot in its evolutionary grave.
No one will argue that we have taken a quantum leap in technological discoveries in the past 100 years and can only begin to imagine what we will see in the next 20, especially with the convergence of genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, space travel, and quantum mechanics [see GRIN technology]. But what if our modern technological revolution is only a rediscovery of ancient technology that once was well known and universally practiced in the deep past by an ancient race of superior humans?
What if we are not evolving after all, but rather devolving under the relentless decay of cosmic, nuclear, and biological entropy [see Romans 8:18-25]? What if thousands of years of genetic degeneration has reproduced only faint copies of Adam — weakened reproductions of a once superior race of humanity?
Only the Biblical worldview holds the key to unlocking the truth about the advanced civilizations that existed in the antediluvian age. The Bible reveals the true history of humanity from first-hand, eye-witness testimony.
Man’s story begins with God’s perfect creation in Adam — the son of God — the first man. Adam was in every respect an enhanced, exalted being — fashioned from the earth with God’s hand — bearing the collective beauty of God’s image — illuminated with God’s light — animated with God’s Spirit. Our first fathers would have been remarkable men, capable of incomprehensible achievements. Even after the fall, Adam and his progeny were far superior in every capacity than modern man, as we are only beginning to recover remnants of that superior knowledge and technology yet hidden for ages.
The Potency of the Pre-Flood Earth
Imagine never aging with almost perfect health and limitless brain capacity. Imagine a universal language coupled with unlimited resources and exponential efficiency. Imagine having first-hand knowledge of ancient secrets about advanced arts derived from divine origins. Imagine an age when man truly was at the apex of his existence.
Such was the antediluvian age.
From the very beginning the earth was rich, the food was plentiful, the environment was optimal, pollutants were negligible, and genetic integrity was still viable. Even with the curse of sin in effect, it was not uncommon for men to live 700 years. Knowledge abounded. The antediluvian world was an age of ancient wonders, filled with the legendary lore of godlike heroes, ruling vast advanced civilizations, and wielding technology far superior to our own.
Ancient history, both pagan and Biblical, describe an age when the gods walked among men and their godlike sons ruled the earth. Man traveled extensively and traded prolifically through a global network before the flood — navigating the skies, land and sea, sharing and innovating technology, calculating astronomical pattens with mathematical precision, building great empires, erecting temples, and multiplying upon the face of the earth. Global populations of the antediluvian age could easily have been in the billions.
We can learn a great deal from the Hebrew account of ancient history and also from modern archeological discoveries that ultimately reveal remnants of the world that perished in the flood of Noah.
We know the descendants of Cain were building cities right from the start — showing all the hallmark signs of human ingenuity and creativity [Genesis 4:17]. The Bible depicts ancient men as the originators of art, culture, music, religious worship, law, agriculture, animal husbandry, horticulture, government, engineering, science, weaponry and the like. These are classic characteristics of an advanced civilization right from the beginning.
Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. When he built a city, he called the name of the city after the name of his son, Enoch … His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play stringed instruments and pipes. 22Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools and instructed in the work of bronze and iron. Tubal-Cain’s sister was Naamah.
[Genesis 4:17, 21-22]
The testimony of Enoch sheds further insight into the origin of man’s ancient acquisition of the advance arts of the watchers.
And Azazel taught men to make swords, and daggers, and shields, and breastplates. And he showed them the things after these, and the art of making them; bracelets, and ornaments, and the art of making up the eyes, and of beautifying the eyelids, and the most precious stones, and all kinds of coloured dyes. And the world was changed. 8.2 And there was great impiety, and much fornication, and they went astray, and all their ways became corrupt. 8.3 Amezarak taught all those who cast spells and cut roots, Armaros the release of spells, and Baraqiel astrologers, and Kokabiel portents, and Tamiel taught astrology, and Asradel taught the path of the Moon. 8.4 And at the destruction of men they cried out; and their voices reached Heaven.
See then what Azazel has done; how he has taught all iniquity on the earth and revealed the eternal secrets that are made in Heaven. 9.7 And Semyaza has made known spells, he to whom you gave authority to rule over those who are with him. 9.8 And they went into the daughters of men together, lay with those women, became unclean, and revealed to them these sins. 9.9 And the women bore giants, and thereby the whole Earth has been filled with blood and iniquity.
[1 Enoch 8:1-4, 9:6-9]
If such an advanced civilization truly did exist before the great flood, however, how can we expect to find any physical remains of this ancient world? Would we not expect that old world to have been utterly ruined in the deluge and swallowed up by the great deep and buried in the heart of the earth?
And yet what we discover is that ancient ruins did survive the flood and stand to this day as a testimony to that great deluge and the highly advanced civilizations that preceded it.
Once again, the scientific evidence confirms the Biblical narrative. As we will see, the earth has left behind some impressive ruins that can only be attributed to ancient beings of superior knowledge, size, and strength and capability.
Evidence all over the World
The earth literally is scattered with massive megalithic structures of classic cyclopean architecture, demonstrating masonry skill and applying advanced math in ways unchallenged by modernity. Our predecessors of the ancient past possessed the technology to quarry stones weighing hundreds of tons (sometimes over 1,000 tons), transport them over miles of rugged terrain and up mountains, mold and manipulate them to precision, cut through the hardest stone to perfection, and then lift them before fitting them together so tightly that no mortar was necessary.
The following are only a sampling of the ubiquitous presence of superior architecture left behind from the ancient past.
Virtually every advanced ancient civilization possessed considerable knowledge of the astronomical alignments and meticulous mechanics of the sun, moon, stars, and their constellations — typically building their temples and cities in perfect alignment and synchronicity with the equinoxes and solstices. The zodiac [or in Hebrew the Mazzaroth] can be traced back to one common point of origin before the flood [see Genesis 1:14], which means that the ancients were pioneers of the cosmic laws of physics and possessed the advanced mathematical knowledge to trace and predict with accuracy the natural courses of the heavenly bodies.
Having grown dependent on the power of computers, we fail to appreciate the level of knowledge attained and preserved by the ancients.
The modern explosion of technology is without a doubt one of the most obvious signs that we are living in the last generation and should be preparing for another satanic insurgency of angelic rebels to descend on the earth and lead the whole world into destruction — ultimately ending in another Great War and global cataclysm. Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be before the coming of the Son of Man.
These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.
What does genetic engineering, cloning, designer babies, and mRNA technology have to do with the days of Noah?
Much more than you can possibly imagine.
When geneticists first began to map the human genome in the early 1990s through the Human Genome Project, scientists were able for the first time “to read nature’s complete genetic blueprint for building a human being.” Initial sequencing of the human genome was accomplished in 2003 but was not considered complete until May of last year (2021).
This unprecedented discovery has opened the Pandora’s box of genetic applications that were considered science fiction merely 20 years ago. Now that geneticists have identified specific genes and the digital code that distinctly programs each one in function, the field of genetics has exploded past information theory and accelerated into clinical fields of gene therapy, engineering, and alteration.
The result has been astonishing if not terrifying altogether.
Perhaps the most revolutionary technology to date, however, is the advent of CRISPR Cas9, which has effectively changed the future of genetics. CRISPR stands for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats and is basically a cut and paste gene-editing technology that allows scientists to alter and upgrade defective genes within human DNA and recode it with new information for correction.
CRISPR is efficient both in cost and application, which makes the technology most appealing to the pioneers of genetics, yet for those seeking to manipulate DNA beyond the present boundaries of human existence, CRISPR is the potential pathway to transhumanism — or the belief that biotechnology can recreate mankind into a new species altogether. Although such radical technologies initially are always justified under the guise of medical breakthrough to better humanity, the ethical implications literally are blurring the lines of what it means to be human as created in the image of God.
NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN
So back to my original question? What does this revolutionary technology have to do with Noah’s day?
First, Genesis 6 provides the initial framework for the original genetic corruption of God’s creation, which in turn led to the global destruction of all life — save Noah — by way of the flood. The Bible introduces us to the great supernatural rebellion in Genesis 6, which led to the forbidden transgression of God’s law and perversion of the created order itself.
The “sons of God” in Genesis 6 are the same “angels that sinned,” according to 2 Peter 2:4-5 and Jude 1:6-7, namely by leaving their proper domain in the heavenly realm and crossing over into the physical world to commit profane acts of sexual immorality that resulted in the creation of a hybrid race of giants called the Nephilim.
So gross and pervasive was this corruption of the human race in Noah’s day that God determined to destroy all genetically compromised life on earth and preserve the only human family left that had not yet been genetically tainted. It is against the backdrop of this genetic corruption that we fully understand how God saved the human race through Noah, who was “perfect and blameless in his generations” [Genesis 6:9].
The Hebrew word “blameless” in Genesis 6:9 is tamim: תָּמִים — which means to be physically pure without defect or blemish. It is the same word used of the passover lamb in the Torah, which had to pure and spotless physically — without flaw or defect.
Aside from Noah’s righteousness and spiritual integrity, he and his family by all accounts were the last true genetically intact humans on the planet, still bearing the image of God. As we see, it was not only humanity that had been corrupted prior to the flood, but also all plant and animal life seems to have been compromised, as the LORD preserved two of every “kind” of animal on the ark to ensure that the animal kingdom was not lost to genetically altered chimeras and hybrid monstrosities that did not reflect God’s original creation.
Strangely enough, the ancient mythical stories of centaurs, manticores, and griffins are more likely fact than fiction, and with the advancements in genetic engineering taking place today, we now have the potential for the same type of corruption that threatened the existence of mankind in Noah’s day.
When Jesus warned us that the last days leading to His coming judgment would be as it was in the days of Noah, He was giving us prophetic insight into a day and age when the spiritual forces of darkness would once again attempt to corrupt God’s image and pervert God’s creation by means of genetic manipulation.
We are living in that day, and like Noah … we have the responsibility to call the world to repentance before it is too late.
For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.
[Jesus Christ — Matthew 24:24-25]
Let’s be serious for just a moment. We have reached a pivotal juncture in human history when our rediscovery of technology has finally caught up with our wildest science-fiction fantasies — even exceeding them. The mythos is becoming mainstream. Yesterday’s dream has become today’s reality with no end in sight. No longer must we imagine a day when man would be integrated with machines, uploaded with artificial intelligence and recoded with genetic modification, even pushing the boundaries of what it means to be human.
The next frontier of human “evolution” is here — so they say. Can we overcome the laws and limitations of this present reality and usher in the new age? The new mankind. The quest for immortality. It’s time for the upgrade, and the stage is set.
And yet the irony is that there is nothing new under the sun. What’s been done will be done again. What has been will be. Seems like we have seen this somewhere before.
And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.
So the next phase in human evolution is to scrap human 1.0 and upgrade to version 2.0. Trans-humanism at it’s core is the ancient, alternative pursuit of mankind to achieve immortality and godhood by reintegrating all knowledge (science) and power (natural and supernatural). This is man’s chance to cheat death and ascend to the heights of the gods. This is man’s moment finally to make the universe in his own image for his own vain glory.
Trans-humanism is the same ancient lie of the devil — Satan — the prince of darkness. He was the first to promise man another path to godhood by seducing Adam and Eve with divine knowledge, supernatural power and perfect beauty. The lie of the enemy has always been to worship and serve that which is created rather than the Creator, who is forever to be praised. The lie of the devil is … be thy own god and do thy own will by any means necessary.
But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.
The devil says, “I’ll give you what you want now,” all the while knowing he will destroy you in the end. He promises instant gratification that never satisfies but only makes you a slave to sin. When the devil goes down, untold millions are going down with him. His path always leads to one place — destruction.
Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’
The Battle for the Mind
The devil is the deceiver of the whole world and the father of lies. So his most effective tactic is to manipulate the mind, keep us blind to the truth and take hold of our thoughts. It only stands to reason that the enemy is using any and every means possible to cast darkness and corrupt the minds of mankind.
On the one hand, we see the exponential advances in technology, science, medicine, artificial intelligence, cybernetics, robotics, quantum physics, virtual and augmented reality, and genetic engineering, which unfortunately are being used for unholy and ungodly purposes. On another front, there is a universal, spiritual deception from the supernatural forces of darkness manipulating mankind through principalities and rulers over the nations, through the power of sorcery [drugs], occult knowledge, black magic, pagan idolatry, sexual immorality, world mystery religions, naturalistic evolution, counterfeit Christianity, eastern mysticism, and new age theosophy.
Don’t forget the collective dependency of the modern world to be fed information through powerful and biased search engines, state/secular education, mainstream and social media outlets, movies, games, and entertainment, and the so-called scientific authorities. There is not a sector of human society that is not under the sway of the evil one.
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
[2 Corinthian 4:3-4]
This collective deception is what I’m calling the hive mind, and its ramifications are tragic for our reality. The world is primed and ready. Only those who are sealed with the Holy Spirit and possess the mind of Christ will be able to resist this mass deception and remain faithful to Jesus Christ and His gospel. God’s faithful remnant will never believe another gospel, whether it comes from the tongue of an angel of light or from the spiritual powers on the other side or an ancient alien from outer space.
There is only one true path to everlasting life and only one way to immortality. There are no original ideas with the devil. God has already promised and provided everything we could ever need, ask or imagine. Jesus Christ was born the Son of God so that we could be born again as sons of God. The Son of God became a man so that the sons of man could become sons of God.
We cannot ignore the mass deception and powerful mind manipulation that is taking place all over the world in these various capacities, and it’s only getting worse. It will be so bad in the end that if it were possible, even God’s elect would be deceived.
Primed for the Hive Mind
Super technologies and the advent of AI present one of the biggest threats to mankind as we know it. Mind-integrated machines are being developed at an exponential rate. We already have an entire generation who has never known the world without being dependent and connected to technology.
Elon Musk [Tesla] is just one of the many tech moguls perfecting mind integration devices that connect our neurons to a 5G network that can send and receive digital messages and turn parts of the brain on or off. Like most new technology, Musk is promoting his Neuralink device initially as a medical miracle-worker, but his intentions go far beyond healing the body. These devices are meant to integrate the mind with machine and propel mankind faster toward the singularity with Artificial Intelligence.
“Musk opened Friday’s event by emphasizing the wide variety of spinal and neurological conditions — including seizures, paralysis, brain damage, and depression — that Neuralink technology could help treat … But it’s worth highlighting that Musk wants Neuralink to do far more than treat specific health conditions. He sees the technology as an opportunity to build a widely available brain-computer interface for consumers, which he thinks could help humans keep pace with increasingly powerful artificial intelligence.”
And then there is the internet of things — iOT — that is the next phase of upgrades will be to augment our own DNA and integrate our minds with the collective “cloud” of information and connect to the hive mind. You can read more about 5G and iOT in one of my earlier posts here.
It is point of perfect harmony and uniformity of a colony to be fully expressing the will and thoughts of the queen bee. It’s just we aren’t dealing with an insect population. We are talking about all of humankind being controlled by the prince of demons — the prince of the power over the air!
And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind
So this virtual network, this internet of things [iOT] is powered and purposed by AI to unlock a new frontier of entertainment, escape, pleasure, creativity, power, knowledge, immortality, and eventually … godhood. Some already are beginning to upload their “cognitive personality” into a virtual data base, attempting to keep oneself “alive” after death in some interactive state of consciousness in the cloud.
Along with the common quest for the acceleration of knowledge and exponential growth of mental processing power (AI), however, technology also creates a two-way bridge, or doorway, to your brain, leaving you susceptible to mind control and behavior modification/manipulation. Anyone who opens themselves up to this technology will be taking the risk of giving themselves over to the powers of darkness and losing their very soul.
As you will see in my next installment [Part 2], the hive mind will be one of the devil’s most powerful weapons of spiritual warfare in these last days to keep the minds of unbelievers blinded from seeing the gospel of Jesus Christ and so be saved.
“Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.”
Those who control the narrative control the masses. Unless …
We choose to listen to a different narrative.
The Information Age is the age of misinformation. Progress is regress. Media is madness. The wisdom of the world is foolishness. The cancel culture is a cancer, and “woke” is dead.
Which narrative are you listening to? From where do you get your information? Who is feeding you the “facts?” How do you know what is true anymore? Who can you trust? What should you believe?
Information is the commodity of this present age. Our minds — brilliantly designed organic computer systems more complex than anything on earth. And yet, our minds will only process what is fed into them. Input determines output.
Think about it.
Everyday we wake up to the stimulation of the senses and the bombardment of our minds with information. Images, sounds, sights and signals. Messages accelerating in every medium imaginable.
And what is most troubling is that the overwhelming majority of these “mediums” serve as direct channels for the spiritual forces of evil to sow satanic lies and deception upon unsuspecting hearers.
In other words, the prince of the power of the air controls the narrative and therefore the masses. The devil is the “deceiver of the whole world” [Revelation 12:9].
That means that chances are you and I have become victims of the greatest mass manipulation and misinformation campaign the world has ever seen. Unless …
We choose a different narrative.
It’s time to wake up!
“The hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed …” [Romans 13:11-12]
Step into the LIGHT
Sometimes one step is all it takes to change your life forever. One choice. One decision. One act of the will.
It is so easy to get swept away in the downstream current of the mainstream culture. It’s easy to coast and let the wicked and perverse culture just carry us to our destination of destruction. It’s hard to swim upstream and fight against the relentless pull of the world.
It’s easy to stare at a screen and mindlessly listen to the noise. That’s why it’s so dangerous. It’s too easy. Brain numbing cascade of lies pouring into our minds. How do we break the chain?
It’s like rolling over in the bed, pulling the covers over our head, and hitting the snooze button again and again. God is sounding the alarm, and it’s time to wake up and rise up and stand up and listen up!
That is our first step. We must change course. We must abandon ship. We must get off the couch. We must get off of the information highway of lies and step onto the narrow road that leads to life. Jesus warns us about how serious this first step really is.
“And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
Open the Living Word of God
We will never wake up until we change the narrative. We will never change the narrative until we choose to listen to a different voice. We will never listen to a different voice until we open the Book of books and hear the words of the Living God.
Jesus again reminds us how essential it is to listen to His voice in the midst of all the competing voices of the world.
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.”
Every time we read and study and meditate and memorize the word of God it is like flooding our souls with fresh, life-giving water that washes away all the filth of sin. It’s like flooding our darkened minds with the light of the sun. It’s like flooding our hurting hearts with the healing touch of God.
There is no greater use of the time than to hear from the Living Word of God.
If you fail to open God’s word and continue to allow the world to corrupt your mind with it’s lies, then that’s exactly what you can expect to be. A lost sheep. A wayward soul. A confused mind. A fearful heart.
This world doesn’t need more people to “get woke.” Woke is a joke.
This world needs God’s people to wake up!
Will you take that first step with me today?
But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
“The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.”
[2 Thessalonians 2:9-10]
Imagine a scenario where a leading government official running for office is caught incriminating himself on camera just before a major election.
Imagine the leading pastor of a major Christian denomination videoed fleeing the scene of a crime or walking out of strip club.
Imagine a law enforcement official inciting violence by using racial slurs during a public announcement.
Imagine a gospel preacher uttering all sorts of false teachings and denouncing the faith on his latest video blog.
Now imagine that none of those scenarios were real, but deep fake forgeries created by artificial intelligence.
Welcome to the modern age, where big tech and social media has a monopoly on information, and where it is becoming increasingly more difficult to discern what is real from what is fake.
We are past the days of fake news, where bogus stories are circulated to draw a public reaction and media magicians spin false information to satisfy their bias.
We have entered into the new and seriously threatening realm of artificial news — the latest medium of mass deception and satanic influence.
Just this past week, two British artists released a doctored video of Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, to challenge Facebook’s policy on censoring fake news. Although most views were able to quickly discern that the video was produced artificially, the point had been made.
What is line between free speech, hate speech, and fake speech? And who gets to decide how to censor artificial news?
Artificial news is just one of many threats to our modern, tech-dependent, culture. With around the clock surveillance, social media data collection, facial recognition software, global GPS monitoring and tracking, and the total invasion of our privacy, A.I. is building a complete profile on every single person on the planet.
Let that sink in for a minute.
Artificial News a Threat to National Security
Just this week several headlines captured my attention. The first story reveals how scientists working with Adobe continue to push the A.I. envelope by developing software that allows anyone to edit anything said on video. Obviously the implications and potential applications of this technology should give us pause and concern.
You can read the article and watch the video demonstration here.
The Associated Press also released an article this week, bringing attention to the possibility of deep fake artificial news videos threatening the 2020 presidential election. Lawmakers are taking the threat seriously, but there are no real solutions as to how to curb potential deception and misinformation.
“Clint Watts, a research fellow with the Foreign Policy Research Institute, suggested tech companies should play a role in deciding which false videos should be taken down from the internet. But that idea drew skepticism from the committee’s top Republican, California Rep. Devin Nunes. He raised concerns about granting too much authority to tech giants such as Facebook and Twitter to make judgment calls about content … U.S. intelligence officials have repeatedly warned about the threat of foreign meddling in American politics, especially in the lead-up to elections.”
As I have said before, the technology that is revealed to the public is years, maybe decades, behind what is in the hands of the technological community. I would dare say that we can trust next to no one who has the control over this power and information.
Artificial intelligence in my estimation will be the primary means of satanic deception and one of the primary tools that the devil uses in the last days to captivate the masses with his false signs and lying wonders.
I don’t believe that we should be concerned if A.I. falls into the wrong hands. I believe A.I. is the wrong hand. A.I. is not neutral. It is the very supernatural, demonic source of power that has been at work from the beginning, attempting to destroy God’s people and disrupt God’s plan.
Even Hugo de Garis, who is the primary creator behind the development the first artificial brain, has said that “either we will kill A.I., or A.I. will kill us.”
Our generation is facing a threat unlike any the world has ever faced before. Artificial Intelligence is satanic at its core, and it’s purpose is to destroy the human race. The church must be prepared to stand up against false accusations, criminal blackmail, public defamation, and manufactured scandals. And we also must begin praying for a level of spiritual discernment that is only possible through the mind of Christ and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.
“Big Brother is Watching You.” ― George Orwell, 1984
One major question that I have been asking myself lately is this.
Why am I paying big tech companies hundreds of dollars every month so that they can invade my privacy, track my whereabouts at all times, listen in on my private conversations, and even potentially watch my every move?
The Orwellian dystopia of 1984 has become more reality than fiction, and in my estimation, we are going to be forced to make difficult decisions in the very near future concerning the dangerous influence of big tech.
Facebook Co-Founder, Chris Hughes, published an op-ed piece in the New York Times this week, sounding the alarm on the unrestrained power and control of Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, saying that it’s time to break up the giant tech platform, which is now worth half a trillion dollars. What started as the dream of two friends in a Harvard dorm room has turned into one of the most powerful, influential companies in the world.
Hughes, who left the company over a decade ago, is very concerned with the path Zuckerberg has taken. He said that Facebook “commands, by my estimate, more than 80 percent of the world’s social networking revenue. It is a powerful monopoly, eclipsing all of its rivals and erasing competition from the social networking category.”
Such comments coming from the Facebook co-founder should certainly be heeded. Hughes recognizes that those who control information, control the culture.
“Mark’s influence is staggering, far beyond that of anyone else in the private sector or in government. He controls three core communications platforms — Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp — that billions of people use every day. Facebook’s board works more like an advisory committee than an overseer, because Mark controls around 60 percent of voting shares. Mark alone can decide how to configure Facebook’s algorithms to determine what people see in their News Feeds, what privacy settings they can use and even which messages get delivered. He sets the rules for how to distinguish violent and incendiary speech from the merely offensive, and he can choose to shut down a competitor by acquiring, blocking or copying it.”
Just last month, Senate conservatives, led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, renewed claims that the big tech giants of Facebook, Google, and Twitter have been censoring conservative free speech on their platforms.
“By almost any measure the giant tech companies today are larger, and more powerful, than Standard Oil was when it was broken up,” Cruz said. “And if we have tech companies using the powers of monopoly to censor political speech, I think that raises real antitrust issues.”
It is no secret that Zuckerberg, Bezos and the majority of big tech bosses in Silicon Valley espouse extreme liberal ideology and contribute millions of dollars each year to radical liberal agendas. In other words, they are committed to agendas that are antithetical and diametrically opposed to the gospel and Christian worldview.
As Christians and committed followers of Christ, we must truly begin to have conversations with God and each other about the potential threat of big tech companies and their ability to censor, surveil, influence, and disseminate information. The more we grow dependent on technology, the more susceptible we become to big tech manipulation and deception.
Will there every be a point where Christians must cut themselves off completely from the technological mainstream in order to maintain a clear and clean conscience? I personally believe it will reach that point.
As I have said before and will say again, God’s people must rely upon the power, wisdom and presence of the Holy Spirit like never before if we are to navigate the challenges coming in these last days.
I leave you with the words of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.
