And *they think we’re crazy!


Taking a short break from my creation study…Digging deeply into the world of science meted out some pretty interesting/ bazaar findings…Here’s the dirt I’ve recently dug up…I’m probably late to the party on all of this info…so please forgive me if what I am sharing here today is old news to all of you folks out there.
The following is an excerpt from a Computer World UK article….
By the year 2020, you won’t need a keyboard and mouse to control your computer, say Intel researchers. Instead, users will open documents and surf the web using nothing more than their brain waves.
Scientists at Intel’s research lab in Pittsburgh are working to find ways to read and harness human brain waves so they can be used to operate computers, television sets and cell phones. The brain waves would be harnessed with Intel-developed sensors implanted in people’s brains.
The scientists say the plan is not a scene from a sci-fi movie, Big Brother won’t be planting chips in your brain against your will. Researchers expect that consumers will want the freedom they will gain by using the implant.
If you didn't already know about all of this...Maybe it's time you did.
Please read Revelation chapter 13
and then
Please take the time to read this extensive article from Time magazine:
http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2048299-1,00.html
*The they I am referring to in the title of this post is the scientific community (in general). And of course, ‘we’ means those of us who are awaiting the rapture of Christ…and who are believers…AKA Christians and ‘Creationists’ as we are laughingly called by those who oppose God.
Please don’t get me wrong…I am not saying that their science is “crazy" in terms of credibility, or that this is all a ridiculous notion…To the contrary, I believe this is not only possible, but it fits into our Christian theology…And being an un-Godly pursuit, it will and can only end in God’s Judgment upon us (mankind)…perhaps before the science gets as far as they are planning for it to go though.
Though the ‘Time’ article is a couple years old, this stuff is still being funded by a young Russian billionaire scientist who is quoted as saying their intent is to create a new human species in which the human brain or consciousness will be downloaded into a virtual body achieving immortality.

Time to get our eyes off  of our cell phones my friends…and LOOK UP!
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 seat, 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.
 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, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
And he had 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, save 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.
REVELATION CHAPTER 13

Upon the completeion of this post, it occured to me that my next and final installment of the Creation Story featuring the Tree Of Life fits right into this post...as you hopefully shall see.
Isn't it neat how God takes us on these little side trips into places we would not venture on our own sometimes, in order to bring us into a fuller understanding of his Word and how it all fits together?

Amen, speak on sis.

When I began studying Buddhism, not to convert, but to understand the why, I realized how empty the thoughts were. There were a great deal of buzz words, to keep you interested or captured I guess, but the meaning was empty.

By taking God, His Being, out of our lives, we are trying to fill that empty space with ideas or thoughts that will take His Rightful Place in our lives.

Excellent post my friend... !!

Hi Denise,

I think when we see these things happening that signal just how close to prophecy being fulfilled, we have to speak up...even if some may find us to be a bit radical...The Bible tells us to expose the darkness so that we will be lights in a dark world...but the wicked love the darkness, and don't want the light of Christ to expose them.
God bless~

Hi Maria,

I was not surprised to see the Dalai Llama involved with this. I too studied the Tao, and also the desert fathers (dark night of the soul) and the four paths...(It was a weird time in my Christiam walk) Their spiritual goal is to become empty of everything, first of worldly things, and then of everything inside of them...until they reach a state of nirvana...where they believe they transend into everything, and become everything...It is completely opposite from what we are in Christ...We get 'filled' with His spirit right away.
We are given and taught that we have a new mind and a clean heart to serve God and others...They want to feel no emotion and become nothing, do nothing.
One of the articles mentioned how the scientists want to achieve a kind of nirvana with this.
You can certainly see how science and (false) religion could very easily converge into a one world religion with these common goals that they have...to achieve immortality...Sad thing for them is that they will live eternally...in torment for leaving their Creator out of their lives.
~God bless~

Wanda said...

Yes it is! God certainly knows how to get us to the places we don't fully know we even need to be.

Never Forsaken said...

Hi Wanda,

I'm not sure if we've met before, but you seem familiar.

I don't watch much TV, but I watched a show where that Russian scientist was interviewed, and it made me research the subject further. I was saddened by the fact that so many large companies and influential people were backing this project, all in hopes of living forever.
A couple of the companies were Google and IBM...I suppose It illustrates just how lost this world really is...and how resistant they are to the simple truth of Jesus.

~God bless~ Lisa

Sometimes I feel anxious when I see all around me. The Netherlands is a godless country like Sodom. Like Nineveh. But I know that when it gets dark and e live in the endtime He will be with me. Every day. That He promised.

Impressive what you write.

Dear greetings from your Dutch sister in Christ.

Hi Lisa,
How can men think that they can become immortal this way, when it is obvious that all they would become, even if it worked, are zombies. I like computers but I would not like one in my head. We in the Lord know how beautiful knowing Him and the promise of eternal life in Him really is. These scientists and what they are trying to do remind me of Pharaoh's magicians. All the more reason for us to keep spreading the true Gospel of eternal life through Jesus Christ eh? God bless you Lisa.

Just Be Real said...

That is why we hardly ever know what is just around the corner. But God does. Blessings to you dear one.

Sharon said...

I often wonder if we will be the generation that sees the Lord return. There is so much going on in the world right now that seems to be the *labor pains* that Jesus talked about before He returns.

Trying to concentrate on being alert and ready - finding ways to spread the Good News He brought to this fallen planet.

GOD BLESS!

Hi Lisa,
Just last week my brother was showing me Google Glass...check it out.
http://www.google.com/glass/start/what-it-does
They are glasses that you wear which are a computer. You can take pictures on command and Google things. It is a bit wild! We are getting there and soon it will just be an implant in our brain and then watch out as we could then be possibly controlled. :s

Blessings hon,
<><

Never Forsaken said...

Hi Jedidja,

I know, I get anxious sometimes too...But the Lord will calm our fears.
Sometimes I think it would be better to be ignorant of everything that is going on around us...but that is unbiblical, as we are told to watch, and be sober.
I pray for you and all my friends in the Netherlands, and in the UK, as well as here in the States and elsewhere...It is not good anywhere... but this is not our home!
~God bless you, my friend~

Never Forsaken said...

Hi Brenda,

I am with you, I like computers but would never want one in my head...God already equiped us with an awesome awesome tool inside our heads...our brain!
It is just an example of man trying to be more like God...except they do not know anything of God...otherwise they would not want to elevate themselves above Him...as if that were possible!
God bless you too.

Never Forsaken said...

Hi Grace,

Thank God He shields us from some things that we should not know...He can handle anything...not us.
Bless you too my friend.

Never Forsaken said...

Hi Sharon,

It is very possible. Funny, my reply to the comment above yours is almost word for word what you said here...And thank God we don't know many things!

Sharing what we know about God is what we should and are called to do!

God bless you too my friend

Never Forsaken said...

Hi Sweetie,

That does sound wild, and I am checking it out!

Some people should never get their hands on such things, as they are likely to disappear into a virtual life, and forget about real life even more.

I'm old enough to remember a time before computers in the home...and I do sometimes wonder what we did with all our free time back then...and how did we function without instantly knowing the answer to pretty much anything that popped into our minds?

Sometimes it feels like we have fallen into a rabbithole...or stepped through the looking glass...Things are getting curiouser and curiouser!

Scarey to think of people walking around being controlled by a brain implant...makes the idea of taking the mark seem even more dangerous and malignant doesn't it.
~God bless~

Dee said...

If the Lord tarry s we will see a lot of ugly ungodly things...but I do know the Lord tells us to rejoice when we see the hour approach as our redemption is nigh.\0/

Never Forsaken said...

Hi Dee,

You are so right...It is time to rejoice and not fret about all this stuff...it just proves God's Word when prophecy is fulfilled.
Blessings and love~ Lisa
