Let’s get one thing straight: this isn’t just another apocalyptic tale (ok, it kind of is). Human civilization is just a few thousand years in age. The past few centuries have been a transitory period – from the renaissance to the scientific revolution and the enlightenment, mankind witnessed a sprawling intellectual, philosophical and cultural growth throughout Europe. Then came the industrial revolution, the technological revolution, the Atomic age, the space age and the information age.

The past few decades have seen rapid advances – human endeavour has exploded. The ‘cloud’ (internet) is the creation of a global network – this archive of human knowledge can be accessed by various devices (PC, phone, laptop, cars and TVs) all over the planet. According to Moore’s law, computing hardware (the number of transistors on integrated circuits) doubles every two years. As a whole, Information Technology grows exponentially – this means that the growth of IT is actually accelerating [emphasis needed]. Consequently, on the near horizon is a technological singularity: “A hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence will have progressed to the point of a greater-than-human intelligence, radically changing civilization, and perhaps human nature.”[i]

The growth of Information Technology is accelerating – the automatic consequence of this must be: the knowledge possessed by mankind will increase to infinity.[ii] We also now understand that the cybernetic complexity of living systems are irreducibly complex and that inanimate nature does not produce prescriptive algorithmic information – it doesn’t even come close…living systems are the product of a Designer. For those who accept the reality of God, omniscience is defined as: “… the capacity to know everything that there is to know”[iii] and is an attribute of the transcendent Creator. So when we consider that the growth of Information Technology is accelerating & mankind is drawing nearer to ‘infinite’ knowledge, we must realise that we are naturally drawing nearer to omniscience or ‘godhood’. The consequence of this: the human race will destroy itself and the universe – or God will intervene and destroy it for us (and create a “… new heaven and a new earth” – Revelation 21:1).

Information is Fundamental

Information (an encoded, symbolically represented message conveying expected action and intended purpose[iv]) is fundamental – not just in terms of ingenuity, technology and communication but for life. Bioinformatics is the formal study of the information of life (DNA is an information molecule). Human beings are highly complex information systems and this is why the fields of nanotechnology (technology on an atomic or molecular scale, usually less than 100 nanometres in size) and transhumanism (it’s the ambition to redesign humans and enhance intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities in order to assist the transition to becoming a ‘superhuman’… and eventually achieve immortality) are so profound. Merging human beings with artificially intelligent machines is well underway. Scientists have been blurring the distinction between humans and animals for quite some time (genetic engineers have been creating hybrid life forms, such as the spider-goat or glow in the dark cats) – we are living in the hybrid age and fast approaching the ‘post-human era‘.

brain

Currently, the human brain is being reversed engineered. It is being modelled and simulated – according to Ray Kurzweil (director of Engineering at Google), the expected completion of this project is 2029. Along with the computer hardware for modelling the human brain, the software must also be designed (to design the software, we must have a complete understanding of how the brain actually works). One particular challenge is map every single neuron in the brain – the term ‘connectome’ is the totality of how we are wired, it is a comprehensive structural description of the brain. Ray Kurzweil (director of Engineering at Google), like many others, is a transhumanist. When talking on the subject, Kurzweil stated: “When you talk to a human in 2035, you’ll be talking to someone that’s a combination of biological and non-biological intelligence”. Juan Enriquez, Chairman and CEO of Biotechonomy claims that we are: “… on the verge of becoming a new unique species, Homo Evolutis…there are opportunities to go beyond basic fixes and perform more elaborate enhancements”. Essentially, from the evolutionary worldview, the next phase in development is to redesign the biological operating system (but the source code is copyrighted by God). And of course, with the advances in RFID technology and medical implant chips, many people now recognise the technology that will used for the ‘mark of the beast’ as mentioned in Revelation 13:16-17 (a bar code will be imprinted, or a device implanted, on the forehead or hand of all those who will be permitted to buy or sell in the New World).

Death is a Mere Illusion

As stated on kabbalah.com: “… [Kabbalah is] an ancient wisdom that reveals how the universe and life work… Kabbalah is an ancient yet entirely new paradigm for living”. 1,000 years ago Kabbalah was regarded as mysticism due to the advanced concepts contained within the ancient teaching. Today, it is still regarded as mysticism as it is claimed to conceal advanced information that will continue to be unlocked until the 25th century. A very intriguing philosophy of Kabbalah teaches: death is a mere illusion and immortality is the only true reality – through a continued in-depth study of this mystical teaching, it is claimed mankind will eventually find the key to unlock immortality. Of course, this ancient search for immorality is all the more profound when we consider the ambitions of the modern-day transhumanist movement. And remember in the Garden of Eden, those three promises made by Satan?

“Ye shall not surely die… for God knows… Your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:4-5)

To sumarise, Satan promoted a humanist philosophy (by claiming that man can define good and evil) and makes three promises to Eve, which in turn, are integral to every secret society and New Age spiritual movement:

  1. Ye shall not surely die: The Kabbalistic concept of immortality – man can overcome death.
  2. Your eyes shall be opened: The concept of an enlightenment which leads to salvation or a spiritual evolution (Gnosticism, New Ageism and Freemasonry).
  3. Ye shall be as gods: Man can reach the status of a god (Transhumanism, Freemasonry and a kind of polytheism).

A Technocratic Socialist Utopia?

Facebook has just announced its latest plan: to utilize drone, satellite and laser technology to connect everybody on planet Earth. Amazon also has plans for a global network of drones and as for Google – it has recently been purchasing robotics and AI (artificial intelligence) firms. Several news websites have asked if it was planning to construct ‘Skynet’ – the fictional artificial intelligence system from the Terminator films. A global spy network is being deployed by Facebook and Google, both of which are under the thumb (or tentacles) of the NSA – Google’s Euro HQ is in Buckingham Palace Road.

NSA Logo: Nothing is Beyond Our Reach

This spy satellite logo of the invasive National Security Agency is far from subtle – it’s an octopus, with tentacles reaching all over the globe and the tagline is: “Nothing is Beyond Our Reach”. Sure, we know they are spies, but must they spit in our faces and mock our concerns? Every digital footprint you leave can be, and probably is, tracked by the NSA. And if you have nothing to hide, why should you care? Your personal digital profile (holding details about your phone calls, your online movements & transactions) held by an organisation such as the NSA is of no benefit to you but is of great importance to a totalitarian government making the transition into a technocratic socialist ‘utopia’. With regards to the internet, the International Telecommunication Union (a UN agency) has been seeking to implement standards and regulations for the internet, it’s one last power grab for control of the global platform that was responsible for accelerating the information age. Although most individuals are oblivious to the gradual reconstitution of society (the New World Order), a world central authority will enforce policies for all local communities around the world, as is evident with Agenda 21.

Meet the Google guard bots (built by a company owned by Google) – they don’t eat and they don’t sleep but they can sniff you out and hunt you down using Google-Maps technology…they will find you where ever you are:

The End is nigh

For centuries, believers have pushing their vision of Apocalypse but for the first time in history, the Apocalypse is on the horizon. In the Old Testament, the prophet Daniel stated that the end times will be marked by an increase in knowledge (Daniel 12:4) – a prophecy which makes much sense when we consider the exponential growth in information technology…we are accelerating towards the technological singularity. The Bible maps out many of the major events leading to the implementation of a final empire, including a cataclysmic war, the building of the Jewish Third Temple (likely to occur after World War 3 in which political Zionism and Islam are set to ‘mutually destroy’ one another) before the stage is set for a global peacemaker who: “… was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation” (Revelation 13:7).

The last century was the bloodiest century in human history and the 21st century shows no signs of being any better. We are seeing wars, deaths, famines and natural disasters on a scale like never before, for which we are told: “When you see all these things, you can know his return is very near” (Matthew 24:33). We are living in the most challenging of times but it shall also be the most rewarding – as we see God’s words come to life and witness life-changing tribulations.

I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore…’  (Revelation 21:1-27)
