2 Peter 3:17-18 (final words of encouragement)
You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
Gary Stearman in his book “TIME TRAVELERS OF THE BIBLE” writes:
“As the Word, the Lord created time as a kind of matrix upon which would be built His creation, both in ancient days and in the world to come. To Him, they are universally accessible. He is omnipresent because He has access to the entire timeline. He is omniscient because all its information is readily available to Him.”
“These verses speak of the origin of all that is – brought into existence from absolutely nothing. Something being created from nothing is completely outside human experience.
We are also told that the Word is the originator of life. From the human perspective, life is indefinable. More than just an electrochemical process, it is the inexpressible spark that empowers all living breathing things. No one has ever really defined the nature of life, but anyone can recognize it. Whether a thing is alive or dead is instantly obvious to even the most unthinking of observers. Life is blatantly and immediately obvious.”
In 1872 the British Historian, explorer and philosopher Winwood Reade, published the book ‘THE MARTYRDOM OF MAN’
The work came to be known as a bible for secularists, in which it attempts to trace the development of Western civilization in a manner similar to the natural sciences.
“Thus Man has taken in his service, and modified to his use, the animals and plants, the earths and stones, the waters and the winds…By means of his inventions and discoveries, by means of his arts and trades, by means of the industry resulting from them, he has raised himself from the condition of a serf to the condition of a lord. His triumph, indeed, is incomplete; his kingdom is not yet come…
Earth, which is now a purgatory, will be made a paradise, not by idle prayers and supplications, but by the efforts of man himself…When we have ascertained, by means of Science, the method of nature’s operations, we shall be able to take her place and perform them for ourselves. When we understand the laws which regulate the complex phenomena of life, we shall be able to predict the future……
Hunger and starvation will then be unknown…Population will mightily increase, and the earth will be a garden. Governments will be conducted with the quietude and regularity of club committees. The interest which is now felt in politics will be transferred to science…Not only will Man subdue the forces of evil that are without; he will also subdue those that are within…he will obey the laws that are written in his heart; he will worship the divinity within him…Man then will be perfect, he will then be a creator; he will therefore be what the vulgar worship as a god.”
Listen to what Winwood Reade writes:
“’God is Love’ is illusionary. Murder is the law of GROWTH,
Life is one long tragedy; creation is one great crime. There is only One Man upon earth. What we call men are not individuals but components; what we call death is merely the bursting of a cell; wars and epidemics are merely inflammatory phenomena incident on certain stages of growth.
If we take the life on a single atom, that is to say of a single man, or if we look only at a single group, all appears to be cruelty and confusion; but when we survey mankind as One, we find it becoming more and more noble, more and more divine, slowly ripening toward perfection.” Supernatural Christianity is false, God-worship is idolatry, Prayer is useless, because the soul is not immortal.”
Julian Huxley published the book “Religion without Revelation” in 1941
“It is obvious that any religion which lays primary emphasis on salvation in the next world will be something of an obstacle towards getting the best out of this world as speedily as possible.
Once we have rid ourselves of this doctrine of a Divine Power external to ourselves, we can get busy with the real task of dealing with our inner forces.”
Aldous Huxley became world famous with the publishing of his novel titled: BRAVE NEW WORLD (1932) Under the product description it says:
“Brave New World is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling order – all at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls.”
Brave New World likewise speaks to a 21st-century world dominated by mass-entertainment, technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites.”
What is interesting here is that Julian Huxley and Aldous Huxley are brothers. Julian Huxley is an evolutionary biologist and THE FIRST DIRECTOR OF UNESCO.
UNESCO stands for UNITED NATIONS EDUCATIONAL, SCIENTIFIC, and CULTURAL ORGANIZATION headquartered in Paris, France.
“UNESCO focuses on a set of objectives in the global priority areas “Africa” and GENDER EQUALITY.”
Anthony Levandowski, a former engineer with Google and Uber, founded the first church of AI in 2017, called ‘THE WAY OF THE FUTURE’. According to wired:
“WOTF’s activities will focus on “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed through computer hardware and software.” That includes funding research to help create the divine AI itself. The religion will seek to build working relationships with AI industry leaders and create a membership through community outreach, initially targeting AI professionals and “laypersons, who are interested in the worship of a Godhead based on AI.”
“What is going to be created will effectively be a god,” Levandowski tells me in his modest mid-century home on the outskirts of Berkley, California.
“It’s not a god in the sense that it makes lightning or causes hurricanes. But if there is something a billion times smarter than the smartest human, what else are you going to call it.?”
Robert Wheeler just released an article titled:
RESURRECTING THE DEAD……DIGITALLY
“In 2017, Microsoft revealed it had patented a ‘CHATBOT’ that could digitally resurrect the dead if actually built. The chatbot uses AI and machine learning technology. Essentially, the chatbot would bring our “digital persona” back to life. Friends and relatives could then talk to our “digital persona”. When the media asked Microsoft about the technology, the companies’ representatives did admit that it was “disturbed” and claimed there were no plans to put it into production.
Believe that if you will.
The technical tools and the personal data are already in place to make these digital resurrections possible. AI chatbots have already passed the “Turing Test,” which means that they have been able to fool other humans into thinking that they (the AI) are human. Globally, most people leave behind enough digital footprints to inform AI programs about their and our conversational idiosyncrasies. Even more convincing chatbots are just around the corner from being released. In other words, a world where humans have been physically altered and linked with the internet. A world where a “single global consciousness” is linked to “cyberized” humans who have been fully merged into the digital world. The “singularity” researchers warned of is now on the verge of being deployed against most of humanity.
The authors don’t know when the singularity will come, but come it will. When this occurs, the end of the human race might very well be upon us, they say, citing a 2014 prediction by the late Stephen Hawking.
According to Kurzweil, humans may then be fully replaced by AI, or by some hybrid of humans and machines.
It’s like science is torn between resurrecting us and making us live forever and ending humanity altogether with risky experiments.”
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
