Blood On The Altar: The Coming War Between Christian vs Christian

The singularity is coming: Eerily lifelike androids converge in Odaiba for exhibition

Once again you are invited to take a stroll through the "uncanny valley"...

What does it mean to be human? That’s the question being asked in a thought-provoking new exhibition of stunningly lifelike androids, which also suggests that maybe the singularity could be closer than we think.

On June 25, the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, more commonly known as the Miraikan, will open an exhibition of humanoid robots entitled ‘Androids: What makes us human?’

The exhibition is headed by Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro, the director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory, which is part of the Department of Systems Innovation in the Graduate School of Engineering Science at Osaka University. Ishiguro is a researcher at the cutting edge of robotics technology, and is famous for creating robots that look just like humans, including the Geminoid, an android modeled after himself.
▼ The real Ishiguro is on the left. Just kidding.
Professor Ishiguro’s research is driven by the question of what it means to be human, and by studying human behaviour and reactions in order to create an android that mimics them perfectly, he believes we can learn much about the human condition and consciousness.

This newest exhibition, which will become a permanent installation, features three different androids that each seek to provoke a different set of responses and questions in visitors.

The Kodomoroid is a remote-controlled android in the form of a human child, and its name comes from ‘android’ and ‘kodomo‘, the Japanese word for child. It looks just like a little girl, but functions as an announcer, relaying information and news on the weather and situations on earth and in space. She is designed to make a statement about the lack of knowledge many of our children have about the world today, and make the listeners think more profoundly about our futures on this planet.


This name comes from a portmanteau of ‘android’ and ‘otona‘, meaning adult. Visitors will be able to try conversing with and operating this android, which is the spitting image of a real, adult human woman. Her function is to give people the experience of socializing with a robot face-to-face.

How To Cleanse With Juicing and Juice Fasting

It's always funny to talk about fasting with Christians here in the U.S.  You should see the frowns and silence come across the people.  Who wants to fast?  Probably no one.  Who needs to fast?  Who can be blessed and enriched from fasting and prayer?  All of us.  Self-discipline is truly a need.  I hope this encourages you to give it a shot today.

I’m often asked to name one thing that can be done right away to get healthier. With respect to food choices, the best suggestion I have is to begin drinking freshly pressed vegetable juices. Drinking just one freshly pressed juice each day is a reliable way of infusing your body with a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that can protect your cells against premature aging and disease.
Making time to drink vegetable juices isn’t a problem for most people. It’s the time that’s needed to wash fresh vegetables, feed them through a good juicer, and clean the juicer afterward that prevents most people from making fresh juices a regular part of their lives.
But if you understand how beneficial freshly pressed juices are to your health, it becomes easier to make the time to juice several times a week.

The Right Ingredients

The key to creating healthy vegetable juices is to make green vegetables the bulk of every batch. Green vegetables won’t spike your blood sugar and insulin like fruits and sweet vegetables like carrots and red beets will.
This isn’t to say that you can’t juice fruits, carrots, and red beets. Fruits and sweet root vegetables can be healthy additions to your drinks, and they’ll definitely add sweetness and flavour. You just want to make sure that they never make up more than one-third of each glass that you drink.
And if your blood sugar level tends to be high, you’ll want to use a blood sugar monitor to determine how much is acceptable for you. I’ve worked with many diabetics over the years who haven’t been able to handle even an ounce of fruit, carrot, or red beet juice in their drinks without negative health consequences, so please consider this point before you select your ingredients for juicing.
Romaine lettuce is one of the best green vegetables that you can juice. You can also juice other types of leafy lettuce like red or green leaf lettuce.
For variety, try adding large handfuls of kale, Swiss chard, collard greens, Bok Choy, and other dark green vegetables that you might steam before eating.
For another layer of flavour, you can add a tiny slice of lemon (including the rind for its flavonoids) to your vegetable juices.
Some people enjoy adding a clove of raw garlic for even more bite.
Be creative and add any vegetables you crave. You really can’t go wrong as long as you make sure not to use too many carrots, red beets, or fruits.
Clearly, organic vegetables are better than non-organic vegetables. But my experiences have led me to believe that the health benefits of drinking juices made with well washed, non-organic vegetables far outweigh not juicing at all. If you’re only able to juice non-organic vegetables due to financial or other life circumstances, it’s still well worth doing.

The Danger Of Calvinism: Unelect Babies In Hell?, Examining The TULIP and More....

Interesting discussion here by Nephtali...I remember a university professor at a Christian college saying he had only seen one fight in all of his years, and it was a fight between two students who held these differing views.  Maybe we would do well to accept what the Lord said in the scriptures and move along.  I find the idea that we can fully understand the will and mind of God perplexing.  If the Lord says both free will and predestination are in effect, why do we have to find a way to categorize every event that occurs in life?  I'm quite at peace simply accepting the truth of His word.  I hope you are too...

Shock Video Catches Planned Parenthood Teaching Teens S&M Sex: Gagging, Whipping and Asphyxiation

by Steven Ertelt

A shocking new video Live Action released today catches the Planned Parenthood abortion business teaching teenagers about S&M-based sexual relationships and concepts such as gagging, whipping and asphyxiation.

In a series of undercover audits, Live Action investigators documented Planned Parenthood counselors and nurses advising our investigators, who the Planned Parenthood staffers thought were minors, on how to practice torture sex.

In the videos, Planned Parenthood counselors encourage undercover investigators posting as 15 and 16-year-old teens, to engage in the sadomasochistic practices, telling the underage teens  “if it’s consensual, it’s OK… it’s totally OK.”

“What we’re about to release shows a systemic, institutional problem in America’s largest abortion corporation,” Lila Rose, Live Action’s president, stated. “It’s not a matter of ‘don’t judge,’ but rather explicit endorsement of violent and harmful sexual practices to boys and girls as young as fifteen years old.”
plannedparenthoodexposeThe group complains: “Planned Parenthood consistently fights any law requiring parental consent or involvement for minors seeking sexual and reproductive health care, including abortions.  PP’s website encourages teens to circumvent their parents and the law.”

“Taxpayers, and especially parents, need to know where their money is going,” Rose said.  “This funding is not optional – it’s a compulsory, government-enforced extraction going toward extremely questionable programs and dangerous advice for our nation’s teens.”

Rose expects Live Action’s upcoming investigative releases to serve as “a wake-up call for America’s parents.”  “This is not a partisan issue.  Whether people are liberal or conservative, or even whether they’re pro-life or pro-choice, I think we’re going to see a lot of common ground in the outrage over what we’re about to show people.”

The following is the trailer video previewing the series of expose’ videos that are forthcoming:

Earth Changes End Time Signs & Events: Extreme Weather - Stress Upon Nations

In a social media world, we tend to forget the earth-shaking event that happened yesterday, because, well, it was yesterday, and that's so old news.  Seeing a period of two months events in one video helps sharpen the perspective of what's going on in the world.

Petrus Romanus: The False Prince Of Peace That Will Confirm The Daniel 9:27 Covenant?

Pope Francis: The key to Mideast peace?
Politicians have been fruitlessly tacking the political side of the conflict. Maybe its time for a man who gets the religious part — and believes in miracles.

Pope Francis waded into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Sunday — and that may be the most exciting thing that's happened in the Mideast peace process since Bill Clinton's promising Camp David Summit in 2000 broke down with no agreement, amid mutual recriminations between Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.

Now, perhaps it seems unlikely that the leader of the Roman Catholic Church can broker the end to one of the world's most intractable conflicts, between Jewish Israelis and Muslim Palestinians (primarily). After all, Pope Francis is the head of state of a sovereign city-state of about 800 people, and head of a religion that doesn't exactly have a historically amicable relationship with either Jews or Muslims.

But there's reason to be hopeful.

On Sunday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres met at a garden in the Vatican, prayed together, laughed together, hugged each other, and planted an olive tree with the pope and Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople, leader of the world's Orthodox Christian churches. This feat of diplomatic acrobatics was arranged at the pope's behest in about two weeks, during which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was trying to isolate Abbas' government for forming a pact with Hamas.

Dancing Fireball Over England

A case for the connection between cosmic and paranormal phenomena? Mysterious dancing fireball captured on camera in Northampton, UK
An English schoolgirl has filmed a dancing fireball in the skies over her Northampton home.

Katie Real, 11, spotted the mysterious glowing orb performing loops across the sky from her window on Saturday evening local time.

The dancing fireball was spotted in the skies above Northampton
A quick-thinking Katie used her laptop to film the unidentified flying object as it ducked and weaved through the clouds before disappearing behind a veil of trees.

In the background her spellbound siblings can be heard debating over what it is.

"Initially we thought it could be a plane on fire but it appeared to be dancing across the sky," Katie's mum 30-year-old Fiona Fearon told the Daily Star.

"It was an amazing sight. It looked like a ball of fire moving around in the sky."

Curious to find out more, Ms Fearon called the local airfield - but they told her it had nothing to do with them.

"I've read about these strange lights appearing during thunder storms called ball lightning but there was not lightning on Saturday night so it's a mystery," she said.


Poor Brazilian children forced into prostitution to meet demand of fans of World Cup

Mark Williams-Thomas
The Mirror       

Tragic: Brazil's streets are filled with 'thousands' of desperate kids. Two pictured here with a missionary charity worker
A Sunday People investigation today reveals how kids living in shocking squalor and high on crack cocaine and glue, are exploited by drug dealers and pimps

Children as young as 10 are being forced to sell themselves for sex on the streets of Brazil to cash in on the waves of ­football fans heading to the World Cup.

A Sunday People investigation today reveals how kids living in shocking squalor and high on crack cocaine are exploited by drug dealers and pimps.

And as 600,000 foreign fans ­including Brits flood into Brazil this week, the youngsters' plight will get worse.

I flew out last week to host city Recife on the north-east coast to ­interview children caught up in the vicious cycle of prostitution.

As a former detective and with ­nearly 30 years of experience in ­investigating child abuse, including the Jimmy Savile scandal, what I found in Brazil made me shudder.

Thousands of ­desperate kids...

TOUT for sex for as little as £1.30 after pimps order them to wear clothes and make-up to look older.

PLY their sordid trade within yards of hotels where British fans will stay.

SNIFF from bottles of industrial glue to stop the pangs of hunger.

FEAR for their lives after a 14-year-old prostitute was murdered and her body dumped in the street last month by a man who refused to pay for sex.

This shocking trade of young girls and boys on street corners goes on under the noses of police in the world's seventh wealthiest economy. With its enticing beaches next to towering skyscrapers, Recife is the fifth largest city in Brazil and will host five World Cup matches.

England will play there in ­knockout games if they win their group. But Recife is rife with drug and child abuse which charity workers say is ­the same across all cities in the country.

Glue kids: They inhale glue - nicknamed 'cola'
As soon as you arrive at the airport, the taxi drivers waiting to pick you up offer to take you to places to buy drugs or sex. Children sit around in city centre squares where fans will gather. This should be a harmless scene of innocence but many of these kids will be offering sex without a second thought.

What immediately struck me is how young these ­children were. Many had attempted to make themselves look older with clothes and make-up.

Accompanied by a translator and a missionary who works with children on the streets, I spoke to three very young girls, one of whom was clearly not well because of the drugs she was taking and glue she was sniffing.

Lorrisa is only 13 and her frame so tiny that I am sure her growth had been stunted by drugs. She sniffed from a plastic bottle containing strong industrial glue, which they ­nickname "cola", as she explained how she lives. I held the bottle under my nose to see what it was like and the smell was overpowering, leaving me with a ­splitting headache. Lorrisa told me: "Sniffing the glue makes me feel dizzy and numb and it stops me feeling hungry so I don't need to eat.

"It helps me cope with the ­violence and danger on the streets." I was joined by Lorrisa's friend Raphaela, 13. She told me how she gets approached by scores of men looking for sex - locals, tourists and taxi ­drivers. They will pay 10 Brazilian real, the equivalent of £2.60.

She recounted a frightening story about her friend Mickela, 14. She said: "Mickela lived on the street and she was murdered on the day of a police strike . "A man picked her up by the Metro train station and she had sex with him. "But afterwards he refused to pay, killed her and dumped her body. It only ­happened a few weeks ago."

I was told later by an older prostitute who has taken on a mother role for the children that the police have failed to find the killer. In the three hours I spent with the children as they openly went about their business, a police car passed twice but officers did nothing. Pimps come and go alongside drug dealers, safe in the knowledge the police are unable to stem the horror.

Calliem, 14, told me how she first started selling her body for sex at 11. "I have sex so many times with men and they only pay me five Brazilian real," she said. It is the ­equivalent of £1.30. Calliem is a regular user of "cola", cannabis and crack cocaine - acquiring the crack from a regular dealer who visits the streets.

She said: "My dad is dead, my mum lives in a shelter with my aunt and there were nine brothers and sisters. "Three of them are now dead. One was killed in a shooting." Her remaining family know she lives on the streets selling herself for sex.

What was most shocking was the matter-of-fact way she described her life, as though it was perfectly ­normal and accepted. Calliem told me she fears the World Cup will just attract more men wanting to have sex. A woman aged 41, who has lived on the streets since she was seven, said: "The children are at real risk from local men and tourists." She pointed out one boy aged 10 who has been forced into prostitution.

She said: "The children go with the men because they are high on drugs or need more money to buy drugs. "They use drugs to numb the pain of the sexual abuse, become addicted then need to sell themselves over and over again to raise the money."

How the Orhtodox Jews Treat Christians in Israel

This isn't new, but it might be news for some.  This has been going on since the formation of modern Israel in 1948. 



Which Billionaire Could Buy Your City?

And keep in mind this is not the full list of billionaires....or I suspect the list of trillionaires out there either.

Individual Wealth in Perspective

A quaint comparison of what money can buy in today’s market has Bill Gates being able to afford every home in Boston. His $76.6 billion reported by the Washington Post or the $78.4 billion by Forbes seems a pittance when put up against John D. Rockefeller’s peak wealth of $318.3 billion (based on 2007 US dollar). According to your resident commissars over at MSNBC, "The median net worth of American households hasn't changed much over the past decades, it's about $20,000." So if Gates decided to purchase all the Beantown houses, whom would he pay for the bricks and mortar? Certainly, most Americans may think of "their home is their castle", but few actually own a debt free deed to their grand estate. No wonder the banks and financial institutions, are so fond of placing liens on real property.
The proportional context of looking at individual wealth within the relative value of global wealth is examined in the essay; It's A "0.6%" World: Who Owns What Of The $223 Trillion In Global Wealth, seems trite. Zerohedge concludes, "The bottom line: 29 million, or 0.6% of those with any actual assets under their name, own $87.4 trillion, or 39.3% of all global assets."

Here are the stunning facts:
"In 2012, 3.2 billion individuals – more than two-thirds of the global adult population – have wealth below USD 10,000, and a further one billion (23% of the adult population) are placed in the USD 10,000–100,000 range.
The average wealth holding is modest in the base and middle segments of the pyramid, total wealth amounts to USD 39 trillion, underlining the potential for new consumer trends products and for the development of financial services targeted at this often neglected segment.
The remaining 373 million adults (8% of the world) have assets exceeding USD 100,000.
And then the top of the pyramid: 29 million US dollar millionaires, a group which contains less than 1% of the world’s adult population, collectively owns nearly 40% of global household wealth.
Some 84,500 individuals are worth more than USD 50 million, and 29,000 are worth over USD 100 million."
After absorbing this macro economic analysis, it should ease the pain that the stewardship of world wealth is in such trustworthy hands. No need to burden the masses with the weight of building wealth, when that formula for getting to the top of the financial pyramid, has room for only the few. The expert obelisk creators never meant for wealth sharing and the tools to construct one’s own prosperity are not included in your capital accumulation education. The liability of mortgage and property tax obligations to retain your edifice requires regular payments to maintain the privilege of possession. Ownership is only a conditional wealth asset.

Revelation: The Fuel Project Guide (Part 30 - The Erosion of Privacy)

Slenderman Demon Takes the Blame in Multiple Attacks

The internet is an excellent medium for spiritual attacks.  It's pure communication and often only moving in one direction  It also allows for complete visual manifestation and various forms of encouragement for exploration.  The end result is always the same.  Violence, horror, death.


Philosophy Phoenix Arises to Annihilate deGrasse Tyson

Disagree with Tyson? Racist!
Disagree with Tyson? Racist!

Or, Gödel Versus the New World Order
By: Jay

In the land of the blind, the 80s black science guy with 80s black guy mustache is king.  In a recent interview, high priest of neo-Darwinian scientism, Neil de Grasse Tyson expounded the true profundity of his worldview.  Tyson stated on a recent podcast:
“interviewer: At a certain point it’s just futile.

dGT: Yeah, yeah, exactly, exactly. My concern here is that the philosophers believe they are actually asking deep questions about nature. And to the scientist it’s, what are you doing? Why are you concerning yourself with the meaning of meaning?
(another) interviewer: I think a healthy balance of both is good.

dGT: Well, I’m still worried even about a healthy balance. Yeah, if you are distracted by your questions so that you can’t move forward, you are not being a productive contributor to our understanding of the natural world. And so the scientist knows when the question “what is the sound of one hand clapping?” is a pointless delay in our progress.
[insert predictable joke by one interviewer, imitating the clapping of one hand]

dGT: How do you define clapping? All of a sudden it devolves into a discussion of the definition of words. And I’d rather keep the conversation about ideas. And when you do that don’t derail yourself on questions that you think are important because philosophy class tells you this. The scientist says look, I got all this world of unknown out there, I’m moving on, I’m leaving you behind. You can’t even cross the street because you are distracted by what you are sure are deep questions you’ve asked yourself. I don’t have the time for that. [Note to the reader: I, like Neil, live and work in Manhattan, and I can assure you that I am quite adept at crossing the perilous streets of the metropolis.]

interviewer [not one to put too fine a point on things, apparently]: I also felt that it was a fat load of crap, as one could define what crap is and the essential qualities that make up crap: how you grade a philosophy paper? [5]

dGT [laughing]: Of course I think we all agree you turned out okay.
interviewer: Philosophy was a good Major for comedy, I think, because it does get you to ask a lot of ridiculous questions about things.

dGT: No, you need people to laugh at your ridiculous questions.
interviewers: It’s a bottomless pit. It just becomes nihilism.

dGT: nihilism is a kind of philosophy”

This is so ridiculous, I am at a loss as to where to begin.  Tyson represents the latest, popular PR front man for the New Atheist club that have taken the Internet, bookstores, sub reddits and mama’s basement-bound neckbeards by storm.  Before launching into this, I would like to remind readers that just as the media’s fixation and focus on planned events is engineered, so is the obsession and worship of these faces of so-called science.  These “scientists” are given to you as men to follow and look up to, when they are utter and complete fools. Let’s unpack this.

Tyson’s statements are ahistorical beyond belief.  Like any discipline, philosophy is a broad subject that encompasses all kinds of associations and related fields.  Philosophy relates to mathematics, in number theory.  Philosophy relates to technology, insofar as computer technology emerges from the philosophical presuppositions of Leibniz.  Philosophy relates to modern scientific methodology, as modern science originated from philosophers.  Aristotle, the father of science, was a philosopher.  Logic, which is the science of argumentation is philosophy.  Logic directly relates to mathematics and math theory.  Tyson uses words, and words are part of a linguistic web, which is philosophy.  Philosophy of science is an entire sub discipline, but the New Atheists have spoken from Olympus on that, too, as Feynman famously said: “Philosophy of science is about as useful to scientists as ornithology is to birds.”
It's so liberal and sciencey!
It’s so liberal and sciencey!
Have these men ever taken a philosophy class?  Surely they were required to study basic logic in their undergraduate program, do they not recall the connection and association of logic with the mathematics they use in their physics?  That these so-called academics can make such ignorant, untrue statements suggests they are not all they appear to be – they are actually con men for a longtime British Royal Society and Oxford Inner Party plan to implement mass atheistic socialism and idiocy.  Lest you doubt me on that claim, you will find it openly in the writings of Bertrand Russell in works like The Impact of Science on Society, C.G. Darwin’s The Next Million Years, Koestler’s Ghost in the Machine, the works of H.G. Wells, and a thousand other technocrats openly proclaim their “final revolution” to establish a world government.  And it’s not accidental these devils rise from the Satanic smoke of England.

Blood on the Altar - The Coming War of Christian vs. Christian - Part 8

by Sharon Gilbert


The Internet, particularly the Dark Web aspect of its underbelly, slithers about the planet gobbling up souls and separating children from their parents through slick enticements and alluring promises for becoming better, becoming more, becoming a god.
You may find it difficult to imagine a world in which young people line up to be integrated body and soul into the Matrix Machine, but that day is nearly upon us! Those who are now college age never knew a world without networking. They have been online since childhood. Children born today will grow up with constant connectivity and an assumption that where the Internet is concerned, “it’s all good.” Let me assure you, it is NOT ALL GOOD. The linked software and hardware is waking up—evolving—toward a point where passing a Turing Test[i] (such as reportedly finally happened this week) will be child’s play. Computers will achieve sentient status, and legal eagles will peck each other to death debating the rights of the world’s newest “netizens.” AI is a reality. It’s already being employed by the military to operate drones, whether as a single UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) or a swarm of tiny UAVs that resembles insects flying in eerie formation. An article from a recent issue of the Daily Mail reports that US regulators want all cars to communicate with each other (networked) by 2017.[ii] 
According to Shawn Helton of the excellent, analytical website Global Research (www.globalresearch.ca), the age of artificial intelligence and drones is upon us:
To see how dangerous artificial intelligence has become, all one has to do is look at the work of Eliezer Yudkowsky, a Research Fellow at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI). Eliezer’s work focuses on the evolution of AI self-modification where strong artificial intelligence or Seed AI will be able to program itself, optimizing its own cognitive functions similar to the malevolent computer Hal in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.[iii] 
An article posted on January 3, 2014, at RT.com reveals what the US has planned for the next phase of its “drone” program and how AI technology is being sold as a cost-saving advantage: 
Unmanned aerial systems currently constitute a major drain on the military’s budget. Officials hope to ease this burden without sacrificing any firepower by shifting many of the human responsibilities to the drone itself. Taken literally, this process involves ending the execution of step-by-step commands and employing commands that the report notes may “require deviation from pre-programmed tasks.” 
Along with surpassing budgetary constraints, the authors of the Roadmap anticipate that, should US drone dominance ever be met with an adversary, American strategies will be “more effective through greater automation and greater performance.”
To make this goal a reality, the Roadmap [Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap[iv]] predicts the development of “swarms” of drones that are shot from a larger, unmanned vehicle that carries them within range of a target. The so-called mother ship would be guided by an onboard camera with a human pilot guiding from a military base. When that pilot identifies a target within a range of 250 nautical miles, he would fire the drone swarm with the aim that they will explode on target.[v] 
Those who know their Bible surely must be thinking of a passage from Joel 2 that predicts such “swarms”: 
Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is near at hand;
A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains; a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks.
Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path, and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble; the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great; for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it? (Joel 2:1–12, emphasis added)
The precise meaning of this passage is a bit murky to us still, but it clearly deals with the end times, and we are fast approaching those perilous times. Some have interpreted Joel 2 as representing a last-days army of believers who march upon Jerusalem; however, these “mighty men” behave in very non-human ways. Some predict that this could be a last-days army of hybrids—half human, half angel—who fulfill God’s prophecy and march at His command. Others say this is a fiendish army from hell, perhaps a corollary of or even a reference to the fallen angel armies that rise from the abyss with Apollyon. It is also quite possible that these unflagging entities are military units, some on the ground, others in the air, that include drones and robotic entities with autonomous intelligence. Just remember that God is allowing this army of immortals (so to speak) for HIS PURPOSES. Later in this same chapter, the Lord implores His people to turn to Him and perhaps avoid this judgment from “the northern army” (Joel 2:20). The identity of these “people” who invade, these “mighty men” who cannot be killed and swarm like locusts, may be hinted at by the Hebrew word translated as “people.” The word is am (pronounced “ahm”). Could America be involved? US drone operations are multiplying at a dizzying rate, so it is not inconceivable. But I would suggest something even MORE chilling: that the drones now being manufactured with autonomous capabilities will soon form a robotic army for a sentient Internet entity, the “image of the Beast”:                                                                               
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
            And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion; and the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority.
            And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed, and all the world wondered after the beast.
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 
If any man have an ear, let him hear. 
He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity; he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Rev. 13:1–10, emphasis added) 
This Beast rises from the “sea,” which may indicate that this is Apollyon, the leader of the terrifying horde that rises like smoke from the abyss. Regardless of his identity, God will permit this being to “make war with the saints, and to overcome them.” The Beast will rule this entire world as one massive kingdom! At one time, this might have proven rather difficult, but with the ability to “run to and fro” via the Internet, particularly an Internet that may actually waken (more on this later), this Beast will already have a “body” to which he will become the “head” (in direct imitation of Christ our Lord and head of the body of believers). Yet there is more: 
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, that had the wound by a sword, and did live.
And he hath power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads,
And that no man might buy or sell, except he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six. (Rev. 13:11–18, emphasis added) 
Let’s take a few minutes to unpack these verses. The Beast from the sea (Antichrist) rises to rule, but he is wounded in the head, ostensibly a mortal wound; yet he survives. Remember the Eden promise from God that one day a hero would arise from the seed of the woman (the hero is Christ) and that the serpent (nachash and most likely also the dragon spirit behind Antichrist) would “bruise his heel,” but that Christ would bruise the serpent’s head (Genesis 3: 15)? This is the fulfillment of that promise. Christ died and rose again on the third day (He was only “bruised” in the heel). The serpent (bruised in the head) will rise again also or at least make it appear that he has died and risen, and the world will turn to him as fulfillment of every eschatology known to man. The Beast will be hailed as Messiah, Mahdi, Maitreya, Shiva, Vishnu, Ahura Mazda…you name it. 
The world will marvel at the Beast, but then John tells us that a second beast arises from the land (appearing like a “lamb,” another Christ-image that I will henceforth refer to as the “Antilamb”) who serves as high priest to the first Beast. This “lamb” speaks with the voice of a dragon (serpent, a picture of Antichrist, Lucifer, Apollyon, the Ancient Enemy). It should chill the soul of any Christian that the brand name of a voice-recognition software product is actually called “Dragon Speak”! 
Take note that this Antilamb has the power to make the image speak, wage war, and murder any who will not worship the Antichrist. How is this possible? The mark. The identifier that the Antilamb forces all not written in the True Lamb’s Book of Life to take! No one without the mark will be able to work, buy, or sell without the mark, because the Internet Beast, the Leviathan that has awoken (being given “life”) will keep tabs on everything we do via a personal WiFi connection! Of course, there will likely be a “carrot” to go along with this “stick”: Those with the mark will perhaps receive direct stimulation that excites pleasure areas of the brain. An episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation featured such stimulation in the form of a virtual reality “game” that rewarded players via a headset similar to Google Glass, but with a means to transcutaneously activate deep sections of the brain.[vi] 
This constant monitoring has already begun. In 2009, the Telegraph ran an article predicting an Orwellian age: 
The European Union is spending millions of pounds developing “Orwellian” technologies designed to scour the internet and CCTV (Closed-Circuit TV) images for “abnormal behavior.”
A five-year research programme, called Project Indect, aims to develop computer programmes which act as “agents” to monitor and process information from web sites, discussion forums, file servers, peer-to-peer networks and even individual computers.
Its main objectives include the “automatic detection of threats and abnormal behaviour or violence.”[vii] (emphasis added) 
Already in the US, social media giants such as Google+, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc., scrape every picture and every post, looking for “hot words” and images that not only reveal where you we are via metadata (hidden information within the image that reveal GPS [global positioning satellite] data and date), but that enable the scraper software to make a map of our workplaces, favorite hangouts, and even homes, and to “tag” every face in every image it finds using facial-recognition programming.

Recently, in response to the European Union Brain Project announcement, President Barack Obama informed the public that US scientists would be launching a similar project called BRAIN (Brain Research through Advanced Innovative Neurotechnologies).[ix] Based upon the resource-sharing structure utilized in the Human Genome Project (codirected by transhumanist George Church), BRAIN plans to map every neural connection within the human body, also called “the connectome.” Many neurologists believe the human connectome equals who we are—it’s our mind, our personality, our inner spirit.             Transhumanists hope one day soon to upload their digital equivalent connectomes to new bodies, and these bodies would in turn be interconnected much like the Borg in Star Trek: The Next Generation. The Borg are born human, but they are “upgraded” and “enhanced” with technology that makes each one a human/cyborg soldier within a hive mind ruled and directed by a queen.
The Christian body must unify if we are to serve Christ well. We must use the time left to us to exemplify Christ as Redeemer and King. It is through His blood and that alone that we humans will find eternal life, not through being uploaded to a mainframe. Sadly, rather than heed Christ’s commandments to love God and love others as we love ourselves, we choose to openly squabble. The world needs Christ, but it will accept Antichrist. The doctrine of transhumanism and Internet sentience will draw away our neighbors and our loved ones. Many preachers avoid sermons on prophetic topics, but prophecy has never been needed more than now! 
Will Christians be enticed into worshiping the Beast? My personal belief is that anyone who truly has accepted Christ’s redemptive work on Calvary, proclaiming Him as Savior, is “marked” with the Holy Spirit: “Now he who establisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts” (2 Cor. 1:21–22). 
We who belong to the true BODY OF CHRIST have the Holy Spirit to protect us, but that doesn’t mean a Christian might not be tempted, and perhaps almost persuaded, by the Beast’s lies. Now is the time to put aside petty factions and unite as a body! The time is nearly up. Science fiction, dear reader, is about to become science fact, and humanity could cease to exist if not for God’s promise to intervene. As He says in Scripture: 
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 
            And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. (Matt. 24:21–22, emphasis added) 
The Internet is shaping your life, spying on you, and making judgments about your posts and pictures. Eventually, it will have the connected drone power to act upon any and all inferences it may make about you and your loved ones. Those who now build the soft and hard architecture that feeds this rising image of the Beast probably have no concept of the terrifying potential they are programming into it. It will not fully rise until the Antilamb is granted the power to give it life, but the Internet is stirring with disturbingly powerful panoptics. 
The Antichrist will claim to be Christ, the Messiah, and he will likely come to the world stage at the conclusion of a “world war” that he will claim is the battle of Armageddon. He will say that his arrival fulfills all prophecies, including Christ’s promise to “come with clouds”:
And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
            And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
            Who also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. (Acts 1:9–11, emphasis added) 
The disciples saw Christ taken to His Father’s throne via a cloud, and the “men in white apparel” promised that Christ WILL RETURN IN LIKE MANNER. Many believe that this means He will return via a cloud, or that clouds will play an important role in His appearing. The Antichrist may one day soon use the idea of “cloud computing” to claim fulfillment of this prophecy. Cloud computing allows Internet users to store digital information in what is “the cloud.” Actually, this means it is not stored locally, but on a server somewhere (perhaps one owned by Google and floating somewhere at sea!). 
Shakespeare’s witches invoked evil spirits and ghosts by the “pricking of their thumbs.” You and I and our children, and soon every person in the world, will feed information, most of it dark and unholy, to the sleeping Beast we call the Internet. However, every bit and byte—every one and zero, every typing of your thumbs—is part of a global effort by spiritual forces to awaken a massive image that will control and cull all those who do not worship at its silicon feet. 
And, oh, one more thing. 
Did you know that today’s computers are about to be replaced with infinitely more capable and potentially lifelike DNA-based computers? Such computers will not only qualify for NASA’s “evolution” requirement for life, but they will also satisfy the traditional caveat that all life must be based on nucleic acids. And, by being based on DNA or RNA, this also means the new life form is based on CARBON. Six electrons. Six neutrons. Six protons…the number of a man. 
A great preacher once told me that Christ will return for His bride when the number (known only to the Father) is complete. When that final soul says yes to the Holy Spirit’s calling, the final judgments commence. 
Perhaps, the Internet Beast awaits a similar, perfect number.
Just one more “Like,” and the end will begin.
