A Desperate Plea For Prayer From a Brother in the U.K.

Brethren, here is what I received from a brother in the U.K.  I have known him for many years.

“You need to pray for all believers in the U.K Geri as our country and its government is cowering to Islam and leftist liberal gender free and LGBT rights. It’s happening so fast and it’s frightening how our country’s biblical foundation is being eroded. President Trump appears to be the only light shining on our situation and is being derided and hounded for speaking the truth.”

Forced Migration Program From Soros and the U.N. 

From an article I wrote in 2015:

Islam is a Totalitarian Political System With One Goal – World Domination

The world is watching in horror as million of Muslims are being systematically transported to any country which will open their borders. There are unspeakable atrocities happening every day in these countries. We read of people warning the world: “Do NOT let these people into your country!” There are rapes and killings happening all over Europe.

These people are being called  “refugees” from Syria. Isn’t it odd to note that all photos taken of them consist of only young able bodied men. If they are truly refugees, where are the women and children?  

America – we are not immune to the horrors we are witnessing happening in Europe! Soon, thousands, perhaps millions of these people will be coming to our country.  It will be a tragedy for America. Our president is 100% on board with this “forced migration.”  It is part of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN.

See this article which I wrote recently about the UN initiatives:

THE AGENDA OF ANTICHRIST SYSTEM WILL BE REVEALED AT THE U.N. IN SEPTEMBER – The Sustainable Development Goals with Commentary

Forced Migration is Illegal Immigration on Steroids

What is happening  today, because of the United Nations agenda, is nothing more than countries being held hostage and exposed to the rest of the world as not compassionate if they close their borders to these so-called refugees.

We hear so much about all of those moderate Muslims out there. Why aren’t they speaking against the jihadists? Certainly they don’t agree with the mass beheadings and terror, right?

For many, this article will be eye-opening to say the least. We have all heard of Christians in name only. Moderate Muslims are Muslims in name only, and they are hated by those who are true to the Qur’an and to their prophet, Muhammad.

Islam is a totalitarian political system, cloaked in robes of religion to present itself as honorable to an unsuspecting world. We have heard imans (Muslim clerics) who describe Islam as: “The Religion of Peace.” Islam is in truth a demonically influenced regime of warlords, whose goal is world dominance.

The word Islam means submission. In this article I will take passages straight from the Qur’an which clearly show that Islam has nothing to do with peace. It has everything to do with beheading, raping, pillaging, and dominating the entire world. To those who practice Islam and are jihadists (the Qur’an commands this) their god Allah promises great rewards awaiting those who give their lives while fighting infidels.

Who are the infidels? This term means anyone who does not believe the words of their prophet, Muhammad. In fact, the Muslims in name only are hated by the Muslims who are obedient to the words in the Qur’an. Are you beginning to understand why the so-called moderate Muslims do not speak out against the terror? They are fearful for their own lives!

Here is an example of a command from their false god:

Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing…but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun [the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.].”

Muslim jihadists must obey the words of their book. They fear for their own lives if they do not live as terrorists, because Allah has told them in their book that they should be killed for not obeying. In fact, doubting Allah in the mind of a Muslim is terrible thing. We wonder how they can be so brutal and merciless. It’s because they must show their god that they believe him, and that they will bring terror against all infidels and slay them if they do not convert to Islam.

Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” (Here we see Allah proclaiming to his subjects that violence is virtuous. It even states that some may find it repulsive, but they must know that their god knows what is good for them.)

I believe that Allah is actually Satan. He fights primarily against Jews and Christians. He commands submission from his followers. Jesus is spoken of in the Qur’an, but it’s not the Jesus we know from the Word of God. Jesus – called Isa, is merely a prophet. It is emphasized that He is not the Son of God. On the roof of the mosque on the Temple Mount are inscribed these Arabic words: “God has No son.” That sounds demonic to me.

Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. (This speaks of Christians, who say that “God has a Son” is joining companions with Allah).

Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.” (Unlike early Christian who were led meekly to their slaughter, Muslims are killed in battle for the cause of Allah. This is the basis for today’s suicide bombers.)

Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward.” (Here we see Allah stressing that the jihadists will be rewarded, but not those who do not fight for the cause.)

Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” These words are clear, and commentary here would be redundant. “

Quran (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.” I am reminded of the videos with beheadings that are posted for all to see. They love to put fear in the hearts of all infidels. “

Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” (Clearly, these words show that the only way to escape death is to convert to Islam.)

Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (People of the Book refers to Christians and Jews.)

Now you have seen a sampling from the Qur’an of the terror that is commanded by its words. Religion of Peace? Hardly – more like the Third Reich, meeting in mosques worldwide, and planning the demise of all who will not convert.

So why do we not hear what the Qur’an really says on the news? Why do politicians avoid what is stated in black and white on the pages of this terrifying book? I can only guess that some refuse to believe that a religion could actually be so violent as the jihadists are. They have their heads in the sand, believing that the ones beheading and raping must be a radical faction of the religion of peace. Perhaps others are just plain scared.

Here is a paragraph of President George W. Bush’s commencement address to the Air Force Academy, on 3 June 2004, illustrating the problem:

“History is once again witnessing a great clash. This is not a clash of civilizations. The civilization of Islam, with its humane traditions of learning and tolerance, has no place for this violent sect of killers and aspiring tyrants. This is not a clash of religions. The faith of Islam teaches moral responsibility that ennobles men and women, and forbids the shedding of innocent blood. Instead, this is a clash of political visions.”  ~George W. Bush

This is another reason that I believe that Allah and Satan are one and the same. The deception is so blatant and so complete—only the enemy of God could pull this off. Some believe that Islam is in fact demonically influenced, but that Allah is not Satan. Be assured, that I am not saying that Antichrist will be a Muslim. I believe that Satan manifests himself in many ways.

Now when you are watching the news and you hear someone speaking about the “radical jihadist” faction of Islam, you will know the truth.

I doubt that you will ever hear the phrase “Religion of Peace” ascribed to Islam, and not think back on the passages you’ve read here from the Qur’an.

As Christians, we know that God is in control. The horrific things happening in this world are obviously part of His plan. We MUST trust Him.

Cling to Him, brethren. I pray, along with you, that our Lord Jesus will soon come to take us away from this wicked place! – source

Brethren, the forced migration of Muslim “migrants” was no random or unplanned event.  It was born in the sick mind of George Soros, and mandated by the United Nations.  Why?  This diabolical plan had one major goal – to destabilize nations. The plan was to expose patriotism and nationalism as “evil” and counterproductive to the One World Government which Soros and the U.N. have planned for decades.

Europe is unrecognizable.  The Muslim migrants have all but taken over many European countries. You see, they have NO plan to assimilate into the societies of the host countries.  No – just the opposite. The plan of the Muslim migrants is to create havoc and take over areas which become “no go zones.”  Little by little they gobble up territories. Inevitably, shariah law reigns.

London is Governed by a Muslim

Who would ever think that the mayor of London would be a radical Muslim?  Yes, brethren, we do need to pray for the people of the U.K., but don’t think for one minute that America is immune to such things.

Open your eyes!  Our own president, Barack Obama, was the leader of America for 8 miserable years.  His association with the Muslim Brotherhood and his hatred for Christians nearly destroyed this nation.  God intervened in our last election and placed Donald Trump in our White House.  We have been given a reprieve. We must use this time to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and see many become saved.

Pray for the U.K.

As our brother has asked, we will pray for the people of the U.K.  Would you please pray with me?

Lord God, we come to You in prayer for our brethren and all the people of the U.K. We ask for Your help to protect these people from the evils of Islam. Lord we know that in these end time there will be much tribulation. Your Word tells us this. But we still come to You as our Father. Your will be done.  We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

The MONSTER Kim Jong-un Tells His People: “Use Your Own Excrement As Fertilizer”

As we read about the leader of North Korea testing missiles and now ICBM’s, governments of the world are trying to decide the course of action to take against this man. The U.N. is condemning North Korea for its provocative behavior.  President Trump now says that we must deal with this situation.

China used to stand in the way of any military responses to the N. Korean leader’s actions. But even China is condemning them. However, Kim Jong-Un (referred to as KJU in the rest of this article) has a good friend in this world, and it should come as no surprise to anyone. 

That friend is Iran.

But I will show you later in this article, just how monstrous Kim Jong-un can be to his own people.

From nypost.com

It’s Time to Take on the Iran-North Korea Nuke Alliance

Iran or North Korea? Which threat should America confront first?

Here’s a thought: both.

Save for the weather, North Korea would’ve tested an intercontinental ballistic missile last Thursday, at almost the same time as Iran did. It missed the date, coinciding with the anniversary of the 1953 armistice pact that ended the Korean War, likely thanks to a rain storm.

Nerveless, it tested the next day, creating a Mideast-East Asian stereo boom heard around the world.

American experts no longer think it’ll take North Korea years to be able to hit the continental United States. Most watchers now expect it sometime next year.

So President Trump has drawn the short straw. Three predecessors failed to stop the Kim regime’s nuclear and missile advances. If he wants to stop the Norks, Trump has no choice but to act — and all of his options are bad.

Meanwhile, much of President Barack Obama’s Iran deal is expected to unravel during Trump’s tenure as well.

What can he do?

Americans and others have long observed cooperation between these two rogue regimes. You don’t need to be a trained missile expert to notice the design similarities between North Korea’s home-built Rodong and its Iranian clone, the Shahab 3. Or the Rodong B and Shahab 4.

Iranian nuclear scientists were present at Pyongyang’s first nuclear test. Iran-allied Syria modeled its nuclear plant (later eliminated by Israel) on a similar North Korean one. Rather than violating the Obama deal by experimenting at home, Iran can advance its nuclear program by observing North Korea’s and contributing to its progress.

The mullahs have what Kim Jong-un needs most: cash. Pyongyang’s only foreign-currency-worthy export is weapons and knowing how to build and use them, which Iran craves. It’s a match made in hell.

So why are countries threatened by North Korea, like Japan, so eager to do business with Iran? After all, don’t the mullahs enable the North’s quest to develop the missiles that get fired near Japan?

“There’s no proof” of such cooperation, Tokyo officials said when I asked them about it on a recent trip to Japan.

They’re right. For decades, America shied away from revealing what the intelligence community knew about the Tehran-Pyongyang love affair because we dreamed of diplomatic breakthroughs on both fronts (and feared revealing spy methods).

After the Sunday ICBM test, such timidity is no longer an option.

America’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley tweeted Sunday that “China is aware they must act” and that Japan and South Korea must increase pressure. It’s “not only a US problem” but one that requires an international solution.

Yet, an international solution has eluded Haley since July 4, the last time North Korea launched a missile designed to reach the continental US. Russian diplomats have ridiculously argued there’s no proof this was an ICBM, therefore no need to increase sanctions.

Such obfuscation will likely continue. Russia and China will block attempts to corner Kim and his henchmen — especially now that administration officials like CIA Director Mike Pompeo are starting to push the idea of toppling the Kim regime, which both Beijing and Moscow oppose.

So one action the United States can take would be to put forth a UN resolution naming and sanctioning persons and entities involved in the Iran-North Korea arms cooperation.

Western diplomats tell me it likely won’t pass. Yet they’re intrigued by publicly airing, Adlai Stevenson-like, America’s intel on Iran-Nork cooperation.

Iran’s missile program was, bizarrely, left out of Obama’s nuclear deal. Revealing the Tehran-Pyongyang nexus might convince allies wobbly about Tehran’s violations that the mullahs’ threat is global. It could also start the process of plugging a major cash source for the Kim regime.

And then, there’s action beyond the United Nations: Obama rarely used the Proliferation Security Initiative, a treaty signed by 105 countries that allows search and seizure of ships carrying illicit arms. Expose the Iran-North Korea connection, then use PSI to disrupt it, with our allies’ help.

We’ve long thought of Iran and North Korea as separate problems. Time for a holistic approach that will give a jolt to the diplomatic stalemate.

US flights over South Korean skies are helping. Talking publicly about adding Japan and South Korea to the global nuclear club may scare China into action. So will blacklisting companies that do business with Kim Jong-un. Regime change should be the ultimate target.

But a change in diplomatic strategy is needed too, and fast. Time to expose what everyone knows, but no one ever says out loud: Kim and the mullahs are BFFs. – source

But there is a side of KJU which is now just coming to light. His actions towards his own people are horrific. I believe that this man may be the most dangerous world leader since Adolph Hitler.

Giant Worms are a Window into the hell of Life in North Korea

SEOUL — Parasitic worms found in a North Korean soldier who was critically injured during a desperate defection highlight nutrition and hygiene problems that experts say have plagued the isolated country for decades.

At a briefing Wednesday, lead surgeon Lee Cook-jong displayed photos showing dozens of flesh-colored parasites — including one 10.6 inches long — removed from the wounded soldier’s digestive tract during a series of surgeries to save his life.

“In my over 20-year-long career as a surgeon, I have only seen something like this in a textbook,” Lee said.

The parasites, along with kernels of corn in his stomach, may confirm what many experts and previous defectors have described as the food and hygiene situation for many North Koreans.

“Although we do not have solid figures showing health conditions of North Korea, medical experts assume that parasite infection problems and serious health issues have been prevalent in the country,” said Choi Min-Ho, a professor at Seoul National University College of Medicine who specializes in parasites.

The soldier’s condition was “not surprising at all considering the North’s hygiene and parasite problems,” he said.

The soldier was flown by helicopter to a hospital Monday after his dramatic escape to South Korea in a hail of bullets fired by North Korean soldiers.

He is believed to be an army staff sergeant in his mid-20s who was stationed in the Joint Security Area in the United Nations truce village of Panmunjom, according to Kim Byung-kee, a lawmaker of South Korea’s ruling party, briefed by the National Intelligence Service.

North Korea has not commented on the defection.

While the contents of the soldier’s stomach don’t necessarily reflect the population as a whole, his status as a soldier — with an elite assignment — would indicate he would at least be as well nourished as an average North Korean.

He was shot in his buttocks, armpit, back, shoulder and knee, among other wounds, according to the hospital where the soldier is being treated.

‘The best fertilizer’

Parasitic worms were also once common in South Korea 40 to 50 years ago, Lee noted during his briefing, but have all but disappeared as economic conditions greatly improved.

Other doctors have also described removing various types of worms and parasites from North Korean defectors.

Their continued prevalence north of the heavily fortified border that divides the two Koreas could be in part tied to the use of human excrement, often called “night soil.”

“Chemical fertilizer was supplied by the state until the 1970s, but from the early 1980s, production started to decrease,” said Lee Min-bok, a North Korean agriculture expert who defected to South Korea in 1995. “By the 1990s, the state could not supply it anymore, so farmers started to use a lot of night soil instead.”

In 2014, supreme leader Kim Jong Un personally urged farmers to use human feces, along with animal waste and organic compost, to fertilize their fields.

A lack of livestock, however, made it difficult to find animal waste, said Lee, the agriculture expert.

Even harder to overcome, he said, is the view of night soil as the “best fertilizer in North Korea,” despite the risk of worms and parasites.

“Vegetables grown in it are considered more delicious than others,” Lee said.

Limited diets

Surgeon Lee Cook-jong gives a briefing during a news conference at a hospital in Suwon, South Korea

The medical briefing described the wounded soldier as 5 feet 5 inches and 132 pounds with his stomach containing corn. It’s a staple grain that more North Koreans may be relying on in the wake of what the United Nations has called the worst drought since 2001.

Imported corn, which is less preferred but cheaper to obtain than rice, has tended to increase in years when North Koreans are more worried about their seasonal harvests.

Between January and September this year, China exported nearly 49,000 tons of corn to North Korea, compared to only 3,125 tons in all of 2016, according to data released by Beijing.

Despite the drought and international sanctions over Pyongyang’s nuclear program, the cost of corn and rice has remained relatively stable, according to a Reuters analysis of market data collected by the defector-run Daily NK website.

Since the 1990s, when government rations failed to prevent a famine from hitting the country, North Koreans have gradually turned to markets and other private means to feed themselves.

The World Food Programme says a quarter of North Korean children 6 to 59 months old, who attend nurseries that the organization assists, suffer from chronic malnutrition.

On average, North Koreans are less nourished than their southern neighbors. The WFP says around one in four children have grown less tall than their South Korean counterparts. A study from 2009 said preschool children in the North were up to 5 inches shorter and up to 15 pounds lighter than those brought up in the South.

“The main issue in DPRK is a monotonous diet — mainly rice/maize, kimchi and bean paste — lacking in essential fats and protein,” the WFP told Reuters in a statement last month. – source

This maniacal tyrant knows no boundaries in his complete disregard for human life.   Brethren, this man may indeed be the catalyst for WWIII.  We know it is coming and we know that the Word of God makes it clear that in these times there are “wars and rumors of wars.”

My heart breaks for the citizens of North Korea. We know that there is an underground church – our brethren – who will pay with their lives if caught. Pray for them!  Pray for all of the people who are trapped under this insane tyrant. Pray for the people of South Korea as well!

MARANATHA!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Prayer Request: I May Not Be Able To Write Much Longer

Through the years I have written about a very unusual birth defect, and how it could have caused my death as a young woman.  I am no longer young, and God has been so faithful – how can He NOT be? He is True and Loving and Faithful, and He never changes.

 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1:17).

In 1974 I went to my doctor for a check up. After looking in my left ear, he told me that he saw a red mass and asked if I was in pain. I told him that I had no pain in that ear.  He put me on two courses of antibiotics, but told me that the “mass” was still there. He sent me to an ENT.

The Operation

The ENT also tried strong antibiotics, but seeing no change, he decided that he needed to do an exploratory surgery.  Remember – this was 1974, before technology gave us CT Scans and MRI’s.

When I awoke after the surgery, this doctor told me only a part of what had transpired during that operation. He said that I was born without a bone in my middle ear, and that he had placed teflon sheeting to replace the missing bone.  That was all he said. But he kept sending me to have x-rays done of the left side of my neck. He never explained why he needed those.

1983- Pain in the left ear Incapacitated me

Years later, I had excruciating pain in my left ear. It was the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life.  When I would lay down, the pain lessened. But when I would sit or stand up, this horrific pain would cause me to vomit. I had been saved just months before. I remember crying out to God to please take me because I could not stand the pain any longer.

My GP got me admitted to a hospital. They did a spinal tap which came back normal.  Elders from my church came to lay hands on me and to pray. I remember that during the night, I awoke several times and I heard a voice say “Go back to sleep – I am here.” This happened all night. It was probably a dream, but I believe that the Lord Jesus was comforting me throughout that night.

In the morning when I awoke, I was able to stand – I still had pain, but not incapacitating.  I went home. I knew that the Lord was in total control, and that was the most comforting thought. I can’t prove this, but I believe with all of my heart that I had an aneurysm, and again God saved my life.

The pain that remained was mostly behind my left ear. My GP said I should see an ENT, so I found one and went to him. This ENT told me that I had a tumor in my left eardrum which had to be operated on.  I told him the story of my exploratory surgery in 1974. This doctor wanted to see the operative report.  But he also wanted me to have an arteriogram. During that procedure, he saw that what appeared to be a tumor, was actually my carotid artery in the wrong place.  He told me that he might have killed me if he had proceeded with the surgery.

He also told me that the artery had a kink and a stenosis (thinned area) which could impact the blood flow to my brain.

He stressed to me the importance of having the operative report from 1974. He wanted to see what had happened in that operating room.

The Operative Report 

I called the first doctor’s office to ask for the operative report and the receptionist came back and said that they didn’t have those records anymore.  My new doctor told me to tell them that my attorney would be the next one to call.  When I called back and used the term “attorney” -all of a sudden they had the report!

In this report of what transpired in the operating room, the doctor wrote that he saw a large vessel which he thought might be the jugular bulb but that it was in the wrong place.  He said that it was attached to a bone, so he dissected it from the bone and it bled profusely.  He then said that he applied pressure to stop the bleeding, and then covered the wound with gel foam and teflon sheeting.  This doctor had never mentioned any of this to me after that surgery.

When the doctor read the operative report, these are the words he said to me:  “You are a walking miracle because that doctor punctured your carotid artery. You should have had a major stroke or died.”

Fast forward to 1990’s – early 2000’s

I had stayed home with my children when they were young. In the 1990’s I got my first job since before the children were born. I felt a bit overwhelmed at the job. I wasn’t sure that I would be able to continue that job. I gave them notice.

I went through quite a few jobs and began to feel so bad about myself. I felt stupid and it was embarrassing to me. I noticed as time went on that learning new things at jobs was becoming harder and harder for me. I kept feeling that there might be something wrong with me, but then I just thought that I was not smart enough to hold down these jobs.

In 2006 I got a job with a computer company. I wore many hats at this company and for the first time I felt good and comfortable. The boss seemed appreciative of me and told me that I had a job there as long as I wanted it. But then I was doing so many different things including marketing and the books, I once again started to feel overwhelmed.

My boss became frustrated with me. I was not retaining what I was learning. It had gotten really bad.  Then this boss let me go. I was devastated. I went into a deep depression.

The MRI

My husband and I decided that it was time to look for a possible physiological reason for my problems.  My neurologist ordered an MRI.  The results showed an area of my brain where the cells had died. This area was exactly where the affected artery sent blood into my brain. The kink and stenosis was restricting the blood flow to my brain. It was getting through but not as fast as the doctor thought that it should.

After that, I had a team of doctors monitoring the artery.  They felt that the first doctor who had done the exploratory had caused the “kink” when he attempted to patch up the vessel.  It was at this time that I started to have small seizures. The doctors also felt that the seizures were from this damaged artery and the lack of oxygen to my brain.

If I had never gone for that checkup, I may have never known about the aberrant carotid artery. It was a birth defect and would have remained silent. But that first exploratory surgery was in 1974. I was born again in 1983.  I knew that everything that had happened, the Lord allowed. I also knew that He miraculously saved my life more than once.

Writing articles for the Lord

Almost 4 years ago I began writing articles. As I would write, the words would just seem to flow.  I would ask the Lord what I should write about, and usually within hours I would feel in my spirit what I was to write.

But recently I have been struggling. The part of my brain which is affected by restricted blood flow, controls speech/language, vision and short term memory. Finding words is becoming increasingly difficult. One day about a month ago, my vision began to blur and the tinnitus which I always have had in my left ear became so much louder. I was also having trouble with balance. My doctor told me to go to the ER.

After every test known to man, including CT scans and an MRI, I was told that the area in my brain affected by my artery was widening – there was more cell death. There was a team of neurologists seeing me.  They told me what I already knew; that it would be terribly dangerous to attempt to straighten out the “kink” in this artery. They told me to make sure I take aspirin every day to thin my blood.

Prayer

May I ask the readers to please pray for me?  The doctors have made it clear that I am at high risk for stroke. I know that God is in control, but I also know that Jesus spoke so much about prayer, and He was always in prayer to His Father.

 “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16).

 Also, if you do not see articles from me posted in my Word press – you will understand why. I know that we all yearn for the day that our Savior will snatch us away from this place to be with Him forever! We will all be together with our Lord Jesus.

What a glorious thought!

Much love in Yeshua

MARANATHA!

Artificial Intelligence and Antichrist: Will There Be a Connection?

I have been researching this topic all day. I can’t seem to let go of it. I am not saying that this is how Antichrist will be introduced to a world which will receive and worship him. But the more I read, the more intrigued I became.

I did not understand how far scientists have come in creating AI robots who appear so human-like and can converse intelligibly with us. I felt compelled to know as much as I could about AI. I felt the need to know how the technology of AI might affect Christians; and also how AI might play a part in the power given to the Beast (Antichrist) when he is revealed to the world.

Did you know that Facebook shut down two AI programs who began to write their own code? They were communicating with one another in their own language. This troubled FB software engineers enough to destroy these two programs who seemed to have acquired their own will and desires. Pretty scary.

A Question for Stephen Hawking

Dear Mr. Hawking,

You’ve made it very clear that you are worried about AI and said this week in Lisbon that the emergence of AI could be the “worst event in the history of our civilization.”I agree with you, but wonder if you would still be worried or see the need to regularly voice your concern on this issue if AI was more selective and calculating in its killing of certain segments of the human population?

You have admitted that we–speaking for scientists, philosophers, and humanity at large–just don’t know exactly how things will play out, but that is only because you haven’t applied the right framework or model for understanding the future.

For just a moment, please put aside what you know or think you know and consider what I am about to tell you. You are an atheist. I am a Christian. I represent an extreme minority view at present but very strongly believe that, as AI progresses, which it will, more Christians will begin to agree with you and me that AI represents a serious threat. (Emphasis added)

In fact, you know very well that the source of most Christian beliefs and teachings are rooted in the Bible and, even though you most likely do not believe that the Bible contains the inspired writings of prophets given brief glimpses of the future, I do.

You also probably know that a number of visions that were recorded speak of a terrible and horrifying entity that arises at some point in the future called the “beast.” The prophet Daniel in the Old Testament and John in the book of Revelation both had very similar visions about this creature or entity and, in both cases, they say that all of humanity is in complete awe because of its power and might.

Obviously, you understand what I’m saying. I agree and believe as you do when it comes to the power of AI, but here’s the thing: if you assume that the framework I present is true–that the Bible already predicted the rise of AI long ago and that it will be a terrible force for evil–then, as an atheist, are you still concerned if, as the Bible indicates, the only people it will kill are those who refuse to worship it as a god?

If an all-powerful, superintelligent AI gave you that choice–to accept it as a god or die–what would you choose? More importantly, if you knew this choice will eventually be given and that it’ll be mostly Christians that are killed, do you still care to warn the world? – source

When Sophia the Robot Comes to Life

Sophia is a female android displaying one of our best efforts at the present time to create a robot that looks and speaks like a person. She recently spoke in front of a large audience at a conference in Saudi Arabia where she was also granted citizenship, something that has never been done before.

Many of you have written in asking my thoughts on this from the perspective of AI and the Antichrist and, I have to admit, though it is interesting that Saudi Arabia is now the first country in the world to give a robot citizenship, the actual speech and interview with Sophia seemed very scripted and more like a publicity stunt than an amazing display of where AI is currently. Even the interviewer that was asking Sophia questions admits that part of it was scripted so this really didn’t show us much in terms of progress in the field when it comes to the intelligence of AI. It was, however, a good display of how far robotics has come in terms of the range of facial expressions and the quality of simulated human voice to make Sophia look and sound less like a robot and more like a human.

Clearly, Sophia is a definite improvement over prior humanoid robots and is getting closer and closer to the real thing. I’m sure if they put hair on her head, the illusion would be even more complete. Most definitely, we’ll continue to see progress in this area where eventually Sophia and humanoid robots, in general, will be nearly indistinguishable from an actual human being.

That said, it may not even be in the field of robotics where this takes place. The Bible is not clear on this point but it does say that the Beast tells humans to create an image (a representation of a person), which it then breathes life into (Revelation 13:15). Whether that image or likeness is finally created using robotics (hardware), synthetic biology (wetware), or a combination of both, we are not quite sure.

I am increasingly leaning towards the synthetic route, however, since any counterfeit or forgery of God’s original design must look as much as possible like the original for people to accept it. I’m not quite sure if that can be done via hardware and it seems like developments in biotech, particularly synthetic bio by reprogramming DNA and using existing biological machinery to create synthetic life, which has already been done, is going to be how we eventually create our AI-infused world leader demanding worship as the one and true God.

If you are reading this blog for the first time, here’s a quick summation of my AI-theology encompassing Genesis to Revelation:

Part 1: God creates Man (in His likeness)
Part 2: Man eats of the tree of knowledge and becomes self-aware
Part 3: Man rebels against God and declares himself to be god
Part 4: Man creates machine (in his likeness)
Part 5: Machine eats of man’s tree of knowledge (the internet) and becomes self-aware
Part 6: Machine rebels against man and declares itself to be god

Looking past the current state of robotics and Sophia, however, when it comes to software, we see that AI is so good at facial and speech pattern recognition now that it can tell when people are lying and also, like a mind reader, infer all sorts of subconscious meanings, intent, and even behaviors like sexual orientation.

The significance of this may not be readily apparent but here’s why this matters. As deep learning neural networks get better and better at reading human emotion and making inferences about what we’re thinking (and probably much better than most humans), then we have to consider what that means when we or an AI reverse engineer this process to not just read human emotion at a subconscious level but also to communicate it in a way that maximizes the desired effect in the person or people hearing what’s being said. One can imagine such a superintelligent AI being the most persuasive, manipulative, and convincing figurehead the world has ever created (Hitler reportedly used crowd control and different techniques for his purposes of social manipulation as well).

As we read in Revelation, the beast (which I interpret as the global AI) is said to convince the whole world that it is God. Only AI is capable of this and, ironically, this is the only god that atheists have shown they are willing to accept (see Silicon Valley Atheist Creates New Religion to Promote AI as God). – source

Now as I said in the beginning of this article, I am NOT saying that this is how the horrors of Antichrist will come about; but I do think that it is a possibility. None of us truly know – only God Himself.

These scientists who are determined to create AI robots who are so human-like, are themselves sinners; and I would venture to say that most all of them are NOT believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, so they are unrepentant sinners. That is a frightening thought that these mad scientists are programming these AI robots from their own reprobate minds.

“And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:14-18).

MARANATHA!
