PROPHETIC FORESHADOWS & THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES
Matt. 16:3: “The Signs of the Times”: Matt. 24:3: “What shall be the sign of thy coming?”
“Former Google and Uber Engineer Developing an Artificial Intelligence ‘God’”
A few decades ago, this title would have seemed like one in a science fiction comic book, but not now! Rev. 13:11 declares that the future “beast”—the Anti-Christ—will have a chief lieutenant, who will essentially have the same miraculous powers as the Anti-Christ himself. The prophetic Scriptures in Rev. 13:14-15 state that this second beast will “make an image” to the beast and that he will have power to give the same life producing properties as human beings possess—“power to give life unto the beast, that the image should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
This is an artificial “beast” to which the Anti-Christ’s lieutenant grants the equivalent of life-giving human powers. Now this “beast” is NOT some science fiction creation, it is a potential reality. “The concept on an AI [artificial intelligence] ‘god’ may seem outlandish, but a former Google and Uber engineer is touting the idea of a high-tech ‘deity’ as a way to improve society.” The article notes that by 2029, “computers will reach HUMAN LEVELS OF INTELLIGENCE…In fact, Google already uses a bot called the ASSISTANT that can answer just about any web-search related inquiry. The article asks the probable question: “Could we trust and rely on so heavily on a daily basis evolve into a religion or a cult?
The answer is an unequivocal “yes.” A leading atheistic scientist Stephen Hawking says that “artificial intelligence could destroy humanity.” While, during the second half of the Tribulation Period, all of humanity will NOT be obliterated, this artificial beast, created by the second beast, will have the power to potentially murder and kill multitudes of converted souls. Rev. 13:15 says that all those who refuse to worship this artificial beast will be murdered!
The only action that prohibits this second beast from carrying out his devious plans is that the RAPTURE has NOT YET OCCURRED. When the Rapture takes place, the world will be plunged into the seven year Tribulation period delineated in Dan. 9:27, divided into two 3˝ year periods as several passages in the book of Revelation plainly declare.
According to the news article, yours truly is now reading, “Google’s artificial intelligence computer” is “NO LONGER CONSTRAINED BY LIMITS OF HUMAN KNOWLEDGE.” The news article declares that this “artificial intelligence” will be able to “tell if you’re [actually] slacking off at work.” This AI [artificial intelligence] would actually “provide the equivalent of a ‘Messiah.’"
The only event separating the above from becoming a historical reality is the RAPTURE when Christ comes in the air for born-again saints—Titus 2:13, Heb. 9:28. Bible-believing Christians should be intensely involved in the establishing of local N. T. churches via evangelistic, soul-winning endeavors. This is NOT fantasy. Distributing tracts, witnessing door-to-door, conducting evangelistic campaigns in local churches, etc. was NEVER more important than TODAY.
Fellow believers, don’t delay become involved in an intense evangelistic effort in your local church—Acts 5:42.
