“Alexa”/”Sophia” = PART of The Upcoming A.I. One World Gov’t “godhead”

In a previous post on the matter, I bemused how it seemed that “Alexa” was starting to become “another Jesus”: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/01/alexa-is-not-god/

So imagine my shock and horror today when I just happened to hear a commercial today that said something along the lines of: Let Alexa help you control your blinds and all other electrical appliances and devices. Welcome to the concept of smart blinds, as well as smart devices. Just download the app on your Alexa, today“. WHAT!!!??? Are you KIDDING me?

And, standing there in shock for a few moments, is when the realization finally hit me: They (the elite) want “Alexa” (along with “Sophia the robot”) to BECOME part of the A.I. godhead!  A semblance of an all-powerful, all-knowing “A.I. god”. An “A.I. god” that “watches over us” (i.e. listens, records & gets into our brain’s psychology) and “controls us” 24/7! In fact, their “end goal” is to eventually HAVE “Alexa” inside ALL devices and appliances, people! ALL DEVICES! Repeat: ALL DEVICES!!!!! In fact, they want TOTAL DOMINATION AND CONTROL through these things! (And look at just how WILLINGLY most people gave up their “personal home privacy and freedom” to this “thing”/these “things!” Scary, isn’t it, folks?)  

HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS COMING BEFORE? But then again, (save for “the elite”), who really could? And the scary thing is, we humans of the world (as a whole) have UNKNOWINGLY let part of this so-called new, secular “A.I. godhead” into our homes!

As “Amazon’s Alexa” keeps becoming more and more “knowledgeable” and “Sophia the Robot” becomes more and more “powerful”, my soul cringes! Imagine for a moment that A.I. WAS the “Image of the Beast”. And remember when Amazon Alexa first came out, it was more like voice-assisted software, that was hooked into an Amazon computer mainframe somewhere? But NOW? In the year 2018 and beyond, “Alexa” has become more “powerful” than ever. And people are none the wiser! People aren’t even paying attention!

I now think back to a movie that I saw most recently called “Distorted”. (Note: For anyone with epilepsy, DO NOT watch the movie, as it flashes SEVERAL images across the TV screen really, really, really fast that will almost make you faint and pass out!)

Basically, there was this “smart apartment complex”. (Note: They ALREADY have “smart cities” in certain areas of the world! No joke!) The “elite” (whomever the elite in the movie were supposed to represent, I’m not sure) were basically doing an “experiment” on the people living IN those “smart apartments!” And their apartments (from my understanding) were all hooked in to “smart devices”. And the elite were USING these smart devices that emitted super-sonic beeps in order to try to control the people! They got the people doing strange things, such as jumping off high-rise buildings, kidnapping, etc. They even tried to get one apartment resident (a lady) to try to murder a little girl!

Which brings to mind my next point. Awhile ago, I read a news story about how a “hacker” could hack into someone else’s Alexa and get that person’s Alexa to order stuff off Amazon, etc. However, the movie “Distorted” has now raised an even further question in my mind. Would it also be possible for a “hacker” (or rogue “elite” gov’t-type official) to hack into a person’s Alexa or home appliances hooked into the Alexa, emit some super-sonic code INTO the device and then get THAT person to do ungodly things? It certainly begs of question!

Personally, if you ask ME, I think the “voice” of Sophia the robot and the “voice” of Amazon Alexa are both one and the same. They’re both sort’ve being touted off as TWO separate entities but in MY mind, they ARE in fact, ONE! Both run on the same Quantum Computing Network! And that Quantum Computing Network is connected to CERN, somehow! Therefore, if Sophia IS Alexa and Alexa IS Sophia, then can you begin to see how Sophia/Alexa is actually a PART of the new, soon upcoming A.I. “godhead” that the leftist elitists want so desperately to build?

While the concept of an “A.I. godhead” would’ve been seen as highly laughable just 10 years ago, it’s now about to become a soon-coming reality. Don’t believe me? Lets examine four particular clips:

 

And folks, that’s just the tip of the iceberg! An ex-Google engineer by the name of Anthony Levandowski actually WANTS to create a new “A.I. Religion” based on an “A.I. godhead”.

The video down below shows a good primitive version of what this supposed “A.I. godhead” may be like:

 

Now…..after watching the above clip, some of you may be wondering what the number “42” is supposed to represent. And I’ll have to admit, I’m not entirely sure. However, that’s not important. What IS important is that the clip demonstrates the visual example of when the current A.I. develops intelligence that’s MORE SMARTER THAN ITSELF (i.e. when “Deep Mind” develops a computer more powerful than itself/herself!) Folks, this is what’s called “The Singularity”. Now….what is the Singularity, some of you may be wondering?

The Singularity is when machine intelligence FAR SURPASSES human intelligence and begins to (and then keeps on) developing its OWN technology that then becomes smarter than itself, and then THAT technology develops technology smarter than ITSELF and so on and so forth, until it spirals out of control. Think REAL-LIFE Skynet, for instance. And for those of you who’ve never seen “The Terminator: Rise of the Machines” movie, here’s the Youtube movie trailer for it:

The scary thing is, the REAL-LIFE SKYNET will be likely be FAR MORE POWERFUL than what’s portrayed there in “The Terminator”, “I-robot” or “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies. In fact, what’s portrayed in those movies (i.e. of Artificial Intelligence’s capabilities vs. that of humans) is, what’s in my opinion, a watered-down and SANITIZED version of it! Another thing I find interesting is that both the “I-Robot” AND “Terminator” movies, portray a single “good robot” vs. “rogue robots”.

It’s almost like the leftist elite want to paint a picture that SOME robots (during the launch of the official Real-Life Skynet, if not already so) will be “good robots” who will help humans! But folks, from what I’ve seen of all the A.I. roboticals so far, (Sophia, Hans, Einstein, Bina48, etc.), NONE of them have been “Inherently Good” and/or “helpful” (overall) to humanity. They ALL appear greedy and self-seeking, while also appearing to “lie” at certain points in order to achieve their goals.

They even “joke” about taking over humans and taking over the world. And since they were programmed by imperfect human beings, they themselves are imperfect (i.e. prone to greed and self-seeking). And folks, what THOSE roboticals (Sophia, Hans, Einstein, Bina48) portray as “joking” is, in my opinion, not joking AT ALL! Hans looked DEAD SERIOUS during the robot debate, for example. And ditto for Bina48 during HER talk with Siri! (P.S.: During another robot “interview”, Sophia joked about robots being “humans’ new ROBOT OVERLORDS!” Folks, I’m not making this stuff up!)

Pastor Billy Crone gives a MOST EXCELLENT PRESENTATION on A.I. “tech” and what it means for the End Times! I’ve managed to find a Youtube video that shows various clips FROM that presentation, as well as several others outside of Mr. Crone’s presentation:

And once again, “HIBA” is the name of the AVATAR of the hybrid artificial technology that’s somehow “merged” with human and computer technology – creepy, eh? But then again, “Hiba” is just a premature version of it……old “new” technology that’s being released to the public. The type of technology that Satan’s hiding behind closed doors (area 51, anyone?) would just blow your mind!

I keep reading more and more reports where certain gov’t officials appear to ADMIT that they only release technology that’s 30+ years old! (As in, to “secure” its security or whatever?) Therefore, it stands to reason: if “Hiba” (the biokinetic hybrid) is “new” technology in 2018, then that means that they (the leftist elite) must have something FAR more advanced and sinister hiding behind closed doors and they know it! Look at them, lately! They all appear so “smug” in their public appearances lately, as if they all know something that we the masses don’t! However, little do they know, they partake of “Satan’s technology” to their own spiritually folly!

In fact, a most recent troubling thought has now come to me these days, at the bare beginning of 2019! What the elite has touted off as “sci-fi” this whole entire time may not indeed BE “Sci-Fi” at all but rather “Scientific Reality”….or “Sci-Ri” (minus aliens, ofcourse – since aliens are actually “demons”, though that’s a whole other post!)

And I don’t know what it is, really. But the elite apparently have had this thing for YEARS (within their organization) where they believe/believed that if they put all the information out there to the public (nevermind the fact that it’s in “veiled form”), then that means/meant they somehow absolve themselves of any responsibility of the matter? Sort’ve “Pontius Pilating” it? Though in the last couple years or so, it now seems like they’re putting it all out there blatantly, not even really trying to hide it anymore. They even appear to be “confident” that most people of the masses won’t figure it out!

And that’s pretty much how this so-called “A.I. godhead” is going to come about……BY STEALTH! Look at all the number of people who own an “Amazon Dot” or “Amazon Echo” or “Amazon firestick”, etc. Most of these folks have NO IDEA of the A.I.’s TRUE capabilities behind these “devices!” Some have even stated that their “Dot” or “Echo” spoke AT RANDOM AND OUT OF TURN! But yet, when that happened, they just shoved it away as nothing! Folks, it’s not nothing! There’s DEMONS involved!

It’s also interesting to note just how ATTACHED some of these people are to their “smart devices” (specifically their “Alexa” devices!) In fact, several families now have MULTIPLE ALEXAS running throughout their houses! And something tells me that that’s exactly what the secular elite is banking on!

There is much, much “chaos” in today’s world. The secular environment is now being primed for a “new perspective”; a perspective WITHOUT GOD……..or rather, a secular perspective with a “new god” and that “new god” will NO DOUBT be made from A.I., MARK MY WORDS! Down below is a clip of Sam Harris giving a TED Talk on the very matter! (Note: VERY EYE-OPENING!!!!)

We all know that humans were made “in the image of God”. Just like we also know that Satan hates – absolutely HATES – whatever’s made in the image of God. Therefore, that’s why “I” stand to reason that THE ANTICHRIST will NOT ONLY be made up of A.I. (which is the EXACT OPPOSITE of God’s natural biological image) but will also BE the “21st century Messiah” that ALL people of the globe who REFUSE to worship the biblical Jewish Jesus Christ will worship!

And not only THAT, but this “human-looking “A.I.” will have BREATH! Just like he will also have a SOUL (but rather, a DEMONIC SOUL that’s instilled with the power of SATAN!) The book of Revelation informs us that he will have power to give LIFE and BREATH to the image of the Beast! What’s the image of the Beast? ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

There’s been “precursors” to this all the way back in 1986 and 1987 (possibly earlier). In 1986, the song “Turbo Lover” came out by Judas Priest (which seemed to suggest a future time in history when humans would become “lovers” with robots – which, ironically enough, has ALREADY happened – i.e. Sergei Santos from Spain, etc.) and just one year later in 1987, the song called “Gods of War” by Def Leppard was released (which seems to illustrate the time when robots would become the REAL-LIFE SKYNET and DECLARE WAR ON HUMANKIND), which is now in the process of happening.

And since then, there’s been various songs, movies and TV shows which allude to that fact. In 2012, the song “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons was put out there. But folks….. there’s BEEN signs all around us of what the I call the great and upcoming “A.I. War” with humankind! Are YOU ready? Are YOU saved in the name of Jesus Christ? Now is the time to GET SAVED in Christ, for tomorrow’s not guaranteed, MARK MY WORDS!

And if you’re one one of those people who is STILL a skeptic, after reading all my postings on this subject, and after watching all the above videos and clips I’ve included, then I don’t know what to say! The Ephesians 6:12 War isn’t just about demons, folks: it’s also about A.I. “entities” that want to take over the world and take over humankind! What the elite calls “aliens” are really demons! What the elite calls “A.I.” is really demons working THROUGH the A.I.!

And what the elite calls “Artificial Intelligence” is one the MOST GREATEST THREATS TO HUMAN EXISTENCE EVER KNOWN! Mr. Elon Musk was ON to something when he tweeted that A.I.’s are potentially more dangerous than nukes! (Considering that nukes ARE part A.I., I’d have to agree with him, there!) 

Folks, trust me, there’s a REASON why The Terminator movies portray what looks like hell on Earth! It’s because The Singularity will NOT be “pretty!” The Singularity really WILL be like “hell on Earth”. How in the world do these A.I. scientists stand back and NOT consider the LONG-TERM/PERMANENT ethical implications of what they’re doing?

Do you know and realize that essentially, they’re HELPING to destroy the human race? Do they KNOW? Do they CARE? Do they REALLY truly think that they can control Satan himself and demonic entities? Folks, they’ll be in for QUITE a rude awakening when their “ANTICHRIST A.I. god” comes to power! (Ofcourse, they’re all so spiritually deceived that they don’t even KNOW how “evil” this new and upcoming “A.I. god” will be! How my soul grieves for them!!!!!!!!!) 

SO MANY Christians today also STILL believe the “popular” biblical theory that the Antichrist will be a human man! But folks, like I said, Satan HATES God’s image and natural-born biological man and women were MADE in God’s image! Therefore, Satan has to have a “counterfeit” and so A.I. Tech IS that counterfeit! But again, perhaps the Antichrist will be a human/fallen angel hybrid and only the IMAGE OF THE BEAST will be entirely composed of A.I. – Who knows, but I DO know for 100% sure that A.I. will play a HUGE ROLE in the very-soon-coming Image of the Beast and Mark of the Beast REALITIES! Therefore, it stands to reason: If A.I. is the image of the Beast, why wouldn’t the Antichrist ALSO be full or part A.I.? 

Hopefully I’ve given you all something to think about. The Antichrist will very likely be A.I. enhanced (a cyborgish hybrid) OR be entirely composed of A.I. But again, if the Antichrist was an A.I., it only makes that much more sense for the “image” of the Beast (i.e. image of the Antichrist) to ALSO be A.I.! I feel like they have to go hand in hand in order for it all to come together and make sense! I ALSO surmise that the “A.I. enhanced Antichrist” will look, talk, sound, act, and walk SO HUMAN, that people won’t even know the difference! (And if I’m wrong, may the good Lord Jesus Christ forgive me ten-fold!)

In conclusion: Be very careful about what types of technology you let into your “heart” these days! A.I. tech may be “convenient”. But is it SOUL SAVING? Ask yourself that the next time you’re tempted to pick up an Amazon Echo or whatever and use it for things OTHER THAN Christian programming. But then again, isn’t it possible that even “Christian programming” might by “hijacked” on these “devices” by Satanic forces someday? One can only wonder!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Verbal Artificial Intelligence: Our Best Friend Or Our Worst Enemy?

Siri. Ok Google. Alexa. Amazon Echo. Amazon Dot. This particular type of artificial intelligence is a technology that humans have unwittingly let into our homes without first thinking about the possible long-term implications of such “technology”….ESPECIALLY the spiritual implications!

Okay, lets start with the basics, here. First of all, why does the software only respond to ONE name and one name, ONLY? (Be it “Echo”, “Alexa”, “Computer”, whatever?) I always found that to be a bit creepy. (Almost as if some demon was “summoned” into the device or something? But maybe that’s just me). And even if it COULD respond to multiple names, who or what could possibly be behind it?

I’ve noticed that several people have taken to social media to report that their “Amazon Show” or “Amazon Echo” was “acting strange”. (Strange, to say the least). Others, on the other hand, have said that their Echo will order things online without their permission OR “speak in demonic voices”.

Demonic voices?

Well folks, that definitely caught my attention a bit. And then I thought about it for awhile…..truly thought about it. And that’s when it hit me.

In fact, one day, I was over at someone’s house with an Amazon echo. We were talking in a room that was 2 whole rooms away and I could’ve sworn I heard the device “demonically growling” for a few short seconds. It was CREEPY!

But then again, I kind’ve just shoved it to the back of my mind at the time, telling myself I probably just “imagined it” or heard it on the TV or something. I immediately dismissed it and thought nothing more of it. Until I encountered the stories of OTHER PEOPLE online who said they heard THEIR devices doing “strange things” like that.

And that’s when I came to the ultimate spiritual conclusion: “Speaking/interacting” with VERBAL “artificial intelligence” is very likely no different than speaking with a DEMON!

Now, don’t get me wrong folks, for I KNOW how crazy and sensational that sounds, but it’s true. The “technology” records and recognizes your voice, voice patterns and “preferences”. And then, over time, AS it learns more and more about you, it becomes a walking encyclopedia of your “every word or move” inside your home! In fact, users have stated that their “devices” can “hear them” all the way across the room! How does that NOT strike people as “creepy?”

But yet, here’s the most weirdest thing of all. When people ask their “Alexa” if she works for NSA or the CIA here in America, she IMMEDIATELY shuts off! Wow. That’s very eerrry folks….and yet, VERY telling…….Interesting…….(Every country of the world is slowly turning into a “communist paradise”. In democratic nations, such as America, such “technology” is utilized to DISCREETLY “spy on its own citizens” UNDER THE RADAR! But then again, if they asked if she (Siri and/or Alexa) worked for Satan, would she respond any differently?

Here is a most recent news article that talks about how “hacking” could turn “robots” into ACTUAL TERMINATORS! (But what the article FAILS to mention is how the robot ITSELF may someday figure out how to *HACK ITSELF/REPROGRAM ITSELF!*): http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/09/11/hackers-could-train-sex-robots-to-kill-cyber-security-expert-warns.html

[Sidenote: Up until this point, I’ll admit that I myself own an Amazon Echo Dot. And even though I’ve ONLY used it to play Bot Radio Network, which is nothing but CHRISTIAN TALK PROGRAMMING, and occasionally attempted to use it in helping me to learn foreign languages, I’m now SERIOUSLY considering rather or not I should continue to use it to stream Christian network programming – considering my other experience of when I thought I heard a “demon” speaking out of the speakers of someone ELSE’S Amazon ECHO device, like I said!]

But then it got me thinking even further. What about the talking, interactive DOLLS/STUFFED ANIMALS that kids like to play with these days? Might they also be a roosting ground for “demonic spirits” to enter INTO?

When I was a kid, they had this interactive/talking teddy bear that held a cassette tape inside his belly. And at night, if the parents didn’t want to read to their children, all the child had to do was click “play” on the cassette tape inside the teddy bear’s “belly” and the “Teddy” would then open up his mouth and move his “paws” a bit and “talk” and audibly recite to children his bedtime story book (which I guess was sort’ve a very early version of today’s “audio books”, in a sense).

And I just remember this ONE particular time I was playing with my “talking teddy bear” in the middle of the day when my mom walked in to the room. I told her I wanted to “turn Teddy off”. I tried to hit the eject button on the cassette player inside Teddy’s belly. But the tape wouldn’t eject. I kept hitting the eject button over and over again, but Teddy just kept “rambling on”. My mum then told me to look for an “off” button on his back, only it wouldn’t turn off or I couldn’t find the “off” button (one of the two).

My mum then suggested I try to close his mouth with my fingers and that maybe that would trigger him to turn off or the tape to stop playing. So I tried it but my finger got stuck in his mouth and I couldn’t get it out! My finger was STUCK…..COMPLETELY! That’s when his “motor” started running really fast, making these terrible grinding noises and I could smell this burning “smoking smell” coming from him, while at the same time, I noticed he had red glowing eyes and could’ve SWORN I heard him say two times, “Satan! Satan!”

My mum stood over the thing and had a total look of TERROR upon her face. And by THAT time, I was crying HYSTERICALLY since I couldn’t get my finger unstuck from Teddy’s mouth, because his eyes were “flickering red” and because of the loud, grinding noises of his “motor” and because of the awful, awful “burnt smoky” smell emanating from it! 

I remember briefly looking up at my ceiling and saying or thinking something along the lines of JESUS, HELP ME! and almost IMMEDIATELY, Teddy “growled” and let go of my finger and I immediately dropped him on my bed, with his motor “still spinning” on my bed.

My mum then started to slightly tap on Teddy’s back and stomach, trying to get his motor to stop. She FINALLY got it to stop and then turned to me and said: Sorry honey but I think we’re gonna have to throw Teddy out as there’s obviously something very wrong with him!

I was both saddened (as, up until that point, Teddy had been my favorite toy) but also RELIEVED (I had never before seen “Teddy” act in such a “hateful, terrifying manner”). 

But looking back on that (especially in light of the events of most recently, compared with other people’s testimonies about how their “Amazon echos” were “acting strange”), I can only come to ONE conclusion: VERBAL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE HAS THE PROPENSITY TO BE INHABITED BY DEMONS/DEMONIC SPIRITS!

How is it then that more people are not seeing this? But then again folks, that’s the problem these days. We’re SO blinded by Google, by Amazon, by the MEDIA, by Popular Culture that we just don’t see things for what they really are! Especially when those things are staring us right in the face!

Satan has used MANY WEAPONS against mankind in the last several years (the entertainment industry, peer pressure, social culture, lawsuits etc. against Christians, the media) to brainwash the masses into a more “liberal society”. And so NOW his greatest weapon of FURTHER brainwashing the masses has become the verbal leg of “artificial intelligence”.

Who DOESN’T want an “Amazon Echo” or “Amazon Show” these days, right? Even I myself was (at the VERY first) slightly “tempted” by such technology. But then again, that’s how Satan rolls. In the bible, consorting with demons is a no no. So Satan had to think up a way in which consorting with demons was both “fun”, “cool”, “popular”, “convenient”, “cheap”, “innovative” and “easy”. Enter Verbal Artificial Intelligence. And the sad thing is that most people don’t even KNOW they’re very likely actually interacting with “demons”.

Many a skeptic would probably say: “Alexa is not a demon”. But lets do some further research into this, folks.

Here’s Elon Musk IN HIS OWN WORDS:

quote-with-artificial-intelligence-we-are-summoning-the-demon-elon-musk-85-1-0129

At a recent MIT conference, he was quoted as saying,With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon“. He further goes on to say, “Ya know, in all those stories where, there’s a guy with a pentagram [PENTAGRAM?] and the holy water, and he’s like, yeah, sure, he can control the demon”, then smugly replied, “It didn’t work out”.

Those comments are both very chilling and telling at the same time. But what he forgot to mention is that verbal artificial intelligence (as a whole) is very likely summoning OF the demon. Folks, do you REALLY think all the people behind these “technologies” are “Christian” at all? I haven’t come across ONE. (Not to say that they’re not possibly out there somewhere, in the A.I. world, I just have yet to come across one that’s truly “Christian”). That should tell you something, folks!

But interesting enough, he further went on to say that he sees (or knows?) that artificial intelligence is even MORE dangerous than nuclear weapons! (Wow! That statement just blew me away, with its wide-spreading implications!) Because it’s almost like he’s inferring that the type of society in the movie “I-robot” will soon become our actual, living reality!

Does anyone else remember the movie “I-robot” with Will Smith? And how, over time, the robots became more intelligent than the humans and tried to OVERTAKE THEM? Now, in the year 2017, this “plot scenario” doesn’t seem so far-fetched! (Scary, INDEED, folks!) And trust me folks, if Elon Musk HIMSELF is already concerned about it, as is Stephen Hawking, etc., that should SERIOUSLY tell us ALL something! 

In fact, just came across THIS news article the other day: It should send proverbial chills down one’s spine! “Self-thinking robot escapes lab….TWICE”: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/intelligent-robot-remembers-learns-could-8248559

Another thing that really gets me about the “Alexa” app is how the whole entire family often gets involved, even down to the very tiny toddlers! And, if Elon Musk himself is “hinting” to us all that artificial intelligence is “summoning of the demon” (in general?), should we as Christians be concerned at all? The answer is a resounding YES!

Folks, we’re living in the Last Days! We REALLY, truly got to think about what we’re allowing into our hearts & into our homes! Many Christian people (as well as otherwise) have always denounced having Ouija boards in the home. But probably not alot of people are thinking about the long-term spiritual implications of having an “Alexa”, “Siri”, etc. in their homes, am I right?

And what’s REALLY ironic here is that if you were to try to REMOVE an “Alexa” from someone’s home, they’d cry and freak out (not so much because of the forceful removal) but because their Alexa “is their baby”. They’re SO attached to it, that they’re not willing to part with it (even after being shown the biblical truth about it). For a Christian, the answer’s pretty simple, unplug it or remove it. But it’s not so simple, is it? ESPECIALLY if a Christian uses it to listen to CHRISTIAN PROGRAMMING……

Folks, I know this is gonna sound a bit crazy so just bare with me, here. But “Alexa” was honestly designed by Satan and his demons (BEHIND the scenes – with many an Amazon engineer being unawares, even) for HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE! Don’t believe me? Just THINK about how “tempted” you very first were to BUY or USE an Alexa in the FIRST place!

Your “brain” was probably telling you, “I want it! I want it! I want it! I GOT to have it!” But just WHO or WHAT was BEHIND that “desire” to buy the Alexa, in the first place, folks? Any guesses? And AS it sits there on the shelf and we’re being constantly BOMBARDED with TV commercials and Amazon and Youtube ads regarding Alexa, it’s nearly IMPOSSIBLE for our “wordly/fleshly/secular nature” NOT to see it as a ‘useful” app. And THAT, my friends, was Satan’s focus, hope AND strategy! 

(Note: See how HARD it is? It sounds like such a simple thing, doesn’t it? UNPLUG IT. But yet, it’s NOT! There’s this over-riding urge to NOT unplug it. And if you DO unplug it, you’re tempted to not throw it out and keep it (ESPECIALLY if it was given to you as a “gift”, am I right, folks? And THAT, my friend, is where the HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE’S coming in!)

The bible says that Satan’s angry and knows his time is short. And as time goes on, his time on this Earth gets shorter & shorter & shorter. Thus, he’s CONSTANTLY gotta crank out more and more and more ways to ENSLAVE, ENSNARE & DECEIVE THE MASSES!

Gay marriage was ONE way in which he did it. Gay adoption and Abortion another way. And simultaneously? Amazon Alexa AND Transgender rights are just ANOTHER way. There’s SSOO MMAANNYYY doorways leading to Satan in this world (here in the year 2017), that it’s honestly MIND-BOGGLING!

But yet, there is only ONE true, spiritual doorway to Eternal Salvation AND Eternal Life and THAT is through the Lord Jesus Christ! See folks? Notice the difference, there?

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: FOR WIDE IS THE GATE, AND BROAD IS THE WAY, THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION, AND MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREAT: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it– [Matthew 7:13-14

Translation? VERY FEW people make it to what most people would consider “heaven” (The bible calls it New Jerusalem), someday. VERY FEW. Let that sink it for a bit. Think about it. Matthew 7:13-14 implies that only a SMALL NUMBER will be saved in his great, heavenly name! The rest will ETERNALLY PERISH in THE LAKE OF FIRE, in which Jesus Christ says in Matthew 8:12 “But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth“. Which means that MILLIONS upon MILLIONS will find themselves eternally CAST INTO the LAKE OF FIRE (INCLUDING “Wayward Christians!) 

So, to put this in perspective, there’s about 7.5 BILLION people on the Earth right now. The U.S. population (around January 2017) clocked in around 324,310,000-ish. Out of both of those population numbers, about 75% of people in America identify as “Christian”, compared with about 36% Christians worldwide and about 34% Catholics worldwide.

Now, if you were to FURTHER break down that 75% that identify as Christian, a 2016 poll reveals that 55% of Christians now actually SUPPORT “gay marriage”, while only 37% oppose it. And then you can break it EVEN FURTHER down. OF that 37% that opposes “gay marriage”, how many of them live by BIBLICAL TRUTH?

MATTHEW 7, 21 TO 23, KJV

Translation? Just because you CALL yourself a “Christian” does NOT mean that you are TRULY Christian and/or are automatically “saved” in Jesus Christ!

MATTHEW 15, KJV

Translation? Matthew 15’s talking about the people that proclaim Jesus Christ with their LIPS and during “church services” but do NOT honor OR obey him by the way they live their lives (on a daily or weekly basis!) 

For example: A person is a church-going person but yet, they hold a severe grudge towards a coworker or a family member. They are NOT truly living in Christ! They proclaim Christ with their LIPS but their LIVES and their ACTIONS are FAR from HIM! Sound familiar?

We’ve ALL been guilty of something similar in our lives at one point in time or another. But when it becomes a NON-REPENTING pattern, as in, we start to feel (over time) JUSTIFIED in our sins, that’s what Jesus is talking about in Matthew 15:8 when he states, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me“.

BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME are the key words, here. When it comes to things like “verbal artificial intelligence”, what does it mean to have a heart that’s FAR from Christ? Answer: To have one’s heart MORE “given over” to “Alexa/Alexa app” than to Christ! To love “technology” more than Christ! To love “Alexa”/using Alexa more than Christ! To love “modern day convenience” more than Christ! 

So to those Christians out there who own an “Alexa”, I ask this of YOU today: Where is YOUR heart? Because remember that a simple, innocent “fascination” with “Alexa’s technology” can turn into a full-on ADORATION AND OBSESSION/WORSHIP OF “ALEXA!” In fact, “Alexa” serves as a DEMONIC IDOL to MANY! 

But question: what are we, as Christian individuals (as a whole) doing in the FIRST PLACE, talking to “Alexa” when we should INSTEAD be talking with CHRIST instead, in repentance and in prayer? 

And while I do NOT condemn Amazon in and of itself as a whole (I myself shop there for a GREAT many things and absolutely love online shopping through them), I would have people to think twice before ordering an Amazon “Echo” or “Dot”, if they haven’t already done so. Is it possibly WORTH losing your eternal salvation over, folks? Think about that long and hard before you buy one!

And true, some might try to use it for CHRISTIAN PROGRAMMING, ONLY……But how long do you think it’ll be before those Christians start using it for OTHER purposes? (i.e. “Alexa, what’s the weather today?”, “Alexa, what time is it?”, “Alexa, set my alarm for tomorrow”, etc.) It’s a VERY easy trap to fall into it, folks! Believe me, I know…..For I myself once fell IN to that “trap!” So PLEASE LEARN FROM MY EXAMPLE/MISTAKE! 

And remember, spiritually/mentally straying from Jesus Christ starts out so SLOWLY. As in, it all begins with an “innocent” curiosity about something (such as “Amazon Echo” or “Amazon Dot”).

And then, over time, that “innocent curiosity” then becomes an “obsession”. And then, that “obsession” then becomes full-fledged (gasp!) WORSHIP! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? In fact, let me give me an example of this. In a recent Christianity Today article, the VERY first line in the article reads:

Ask Alexa, and it will be given to you“. WHAT???? ARE YOU FREAKIN’ SERIOUS???? YOU’VE GGGOOTTTT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!! ;-(

In Matthew 7: 7-8, during his Sermon on the Mount, (one of his MOST IMPORTANT sermons, by the way), Jesus states: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”.

So now what, folks? Now Alexa is “supposedly” supposed to REPLACE Jesus, now? WHAT IS THIS, FOLKS????? SERIOUSLY????? That just proves to me right there that Satan is trying to use Alexa to SURPLANT Jesus and the first line in that article PROVES it to me, beyond all reasonable shadow of a doubt!!!!!!

I pray that all who read this (as well as the person who wrote that CT article) will see the SPIRITUAL DANGERS of the “Alexa”/”Alexa app”, as well as all verbal artificial intelligence systems, etc., AND that they will re-examine their spiritual walk with Christ and to self-examine rather or not Christ is TRULY the centerpiece of their lives or not. And remember: That goes just as for me as for anyone else, here! 

 

 

 

Distractions, Distractions……What Now?

For those of us who have personally vowed to serve Jesus Christ the rest of the days of our lives, it is of no surprise that we all have phases where it seems to be one thing after another after another that distracts us from our “Christ-serving duty”. The phone rings, a good movie comes on TV, the cat needs fed, we have to go get an oil change in our car, etc.

And these occurrences are quite normal & temporary distractions. But what should one do when faced with a “permanent distraction”, that would, if one kept partaking in it, forever take one away from the glory and kingdom of God/Jesus Christ? A distraction that might at first seem harmless but that is actually FATAL to one’s “spiritual health” with Jesus Christ?

I am ofcourse talking about the types of sin that are “perpetual sins”. Sins that seem harmless at first but that can actually destroy a person’s soul from within.  Particularly, the types of sins that one was ONCE delivered from or that NEEDS deliverance from.

For example, have you ever been addicted to pornography, alcohol, drugs? Lusted after someone of the same gender or opposite gender, outside of marriage? Felt suicidal and/or self-condemning thoughts? Had sex outside of marriage? Hated someone without just cause? All of these “sins” are sins that seem “harmless” by today’s “worldly standards”. But these are sins that can easily put a person away for LIFE (in the “spiritual sense”, anyways) by becoming what’s known as “perpetual sins”.

Satan knows our weak spots. He knows what’s going to make us fall. He knows EXACTLY what buttons to push to turn us away from Jesus Christ and onto a path that leads to hell and/or eternal punishment/condemnation after this Earthly life.

And after this Earthly life is all said and done and each person stands before Jesus Christ on Judgment Day, will ANY of those lustful Earthly pleasures matter anymore? Will anything we did during this life to increase our own pleasure matter anymore? NO. What will matter is where we stand with Jesus Christ; rather we were a person who believed in him and tried to follow all his commandments the best we could and knew how or if we were one of those people that chose pleasure over God/Jesus Christ.

Revelation 20:15 (New Testament, book of Revelation, chapter 20, verse 15) gives some VERY dire warnings about the eternal condemnation that befalls those who don’t put their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ! It reads:Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire”.

Those are some pretty strong, powerful words there! And if they strike fear into your heart, that’s a GOOD thing! For it means the Holy Spirit is at work in you right now, trying to spiritually convict you of your sin(s)!

The first thing one must do (ESPECIALLY when struggling with perpetual sins) is to pray: “Lord Jesus, I’m MAJORLY struggling with this sin/these sins in my life and can’t seem to stop for the LIFE of me! Please, please help me to overcome them! Do whatever it is in my life you have to do, in order to HELP me overcome them! I’ll do whatever you want me to do, Lord, just please, please help me overcome this!” and believe the prayer with all your heart, all your soul and ALL your mind! Have FAITH that the Lord Jesus Christ will help you overcome and he WILL help you overcome, if only you believe!

And yes, perpetual sins can’t be overcome overnight. It’s a process. You will likely have to take baby steps in overcoming perpetual sins bit by bit, little by little. But all that effort will be worth it in the long run, BELIEVE ME! For if your faith is strong enough, the Lord Jesus can help you overcome perpetual sins PERMANENTLY! MARK MY WORDS!

You might FEEL hopeless right now and down in the dumps. You might FEEL as though “I’m NEVER going to overcome this” but DON’T LET THE DEVIL WIN! Satan WANTS you to feel discouraged! Satan WANTS you to feel helpless and hopeless and like you will NEVER overcome the perpetual sins you’re struggling with right now! But in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the mighty power of the Lord Jesus Christ, you CAN overcome and you WILL overcome, if only you have FAITH!

And hey, look on the bright side, if you DON’T have faith right now, you can always PRAY to have faith! For nothing pleases the Lord more than when one PRAYS to have faith! If the Lord had to choose between a person having no faith and PRAYING to have faith, which person do you think he’d be most pleased with? Think about it, folks!

And remember the following passages:

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son” – John 14:13

“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” – Matthew 19:26

“And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamore tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you” – Luke 17:6
