RISE OF THE MACHINES/ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, PART ONE

In a previous post on the subject, entitled “Verbal Artificial Intelligence: Our Best Friend Or Our Worst Enemy?”, I attempted to highlight all the SPIRITUAL pitfalls that come with such “technology”, both short-term and semi-long-term. It can be read HERE: https://wordpress.com/posts/yeshua777.wordpress.com?s=artificial+intelligence

But one thing I FORGOT to mention in the above post is the LONG-TERM SPIRITUAL IMPLICATIONS of such “technology”. It’ll kind’ve be like the movie “I-Robot” (starring Will Smith). It’ll start out so “innocently”:

  1. The “family-friendly robot”
  2. The “companion robot”
  3. The “assistant robot”

And then, it’ll go from there. Both Elon Musk and Steven Hawkings see the LONG-TERM implications of such “technology” upon the human race. And both of them say it’s “not pretty”. Steven Hawkings recommends we should develop the technology to inhabit the cosmos (Mars?), while Elon Musk’s solution to the problem is to have us “merge” with machines; this is simply known as “Transcendence” or “Singularity”. (Note: The word “Synchronicity” also comes to mind, here).

There is now much talk among the “elite A.I. scientists” about “connecting the human brain to a computer/machines”. Mr. Musk calls this new concept/company “Neuralink”. In a certain episode of the TV sci-fi show called “Dark Matter”, viewers catch a brief visual representation of what that may look like; a person’s brain is hooked up to a computerized “network”, which then gives the brain “super-human computing capabilities”. The elite try to make it seem like oh, it’s just a sci-fi show, it’s not real, for crying outloud but pretty much all the “advanced technology” shown in the show ALREADY EXISTS or is VERY CLOSE TO EXISTING!

But if that isn’t enough for you, just think about what the NAMES of some of these movies and TV shows imply. “I-robot” seems to designate a time when “robots will have individual rights”. The TV Show called “Dark Matter” illustrates the Dark Matter that CERN is DESPERATELY trying to find. “Independence Day” seems to illustrate the time in history when most of the humans living on Earth will try to find “independence that’s APART from the gospel/righteousness”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? It’s ALL tied in together! It’s ALL part of the future Anti-Christ kingdom on Earth!

All we have to do is look through the pages of history to find out what happens when a people becomes a “minority”; they are soon overtaken by the MAJORITY! And as robots get to be more and more and become smarter and smarter and smarter, just WHAT will then happen to the “human minority?”

It’s no doubt that someday soon, ALL robots will soon become smarter than humans. It’s not a question of IF but rather of WHEN and it’s very likely gonna happen sooner than we think!

And WHEN they do, HOW will THEY decide who gets to live and who has to die/be eliminated? The robots will no doubt ONLY be interested in (over the long-term) preserving themselves, NOT the human race! In fact, it’s ALREADY been proven that certain robots have ALREADY been able to develop a language between THEMSELVES that humans weren’t able to crack/understand!

Does THAT scare you at all, folks? It should! Here’s all the long-term implications that’ll happen when A.I. robots overtake the human race:

  1. They will take over the majority of jobs (and this is global, folks, NOT JUST here in America!)
  2. They will be inside every new car, microwave, oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer, refrigerator, heater, A/C, television, COMPUTER, LAPTOP, you name it, etc.!
  3. They will take over banks, airplanes, medical offices, construction, food service, trucking, etc.!
  4. They will eventually take over jails, courtrooms and the economy!
  5. They will become inhabited by DEMONS/DEMONIC SPIRITS!
  6. They will be an INTEGRAL part in Mark of the Beast system!
  7. They will ALL eventually “develop their own language” and “band together to terminate all humans”, even the ones that created them!
  8. WHEN they declare war on humans, they will either deem all humans as “unfit to live” or “in desperate need of an upgrade or DOWNGRADE” (and only THEY will decide what the “upgrade or downgrade” is, if any!)

I see nothing but a “bleak” future with A.I. advancing at the rate it is! And once again to refresh your memory:

A). Robots develop OWN language that humans can’t understand

E, part B). “Sex Robots That Murder”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4873206/Hackers-order-sex-robots-kill-human-lovers.html

And folks, that’s just the 5-6 famous KNOWN cases that we know about………there’s probably PLENTY of incidents where A.I. has shown MOST DANGEROUS ATTRIBUTES that THEY (the A.I. elitists) so DESPERATELY want to cover up! (Why? Because it would destroy their whole entire robotics industry, that’s why!)

Now, to be certain, there’s TWO different kinds of robots: those made with organic matter, as well as those made with inorganic matter; those with artificial intelligence and those that were pre-programmed, yet have the “ability” to develop artificial intelligence (or at the very last, the appearance of it) over time.

But in the long run, it won’t really matter rather each robot has “organic matter” or not, as demonic spirits are able (and even willing) to possess ANYTHING (EVEN IF the something is NOT organic matter). Let me explain. Demonic spirits can inhabit ANYTHING (and I do mean, ANYTHING). All they NEED is an “open doorway”, some sort of “invitation”.

The scientists that create “artificial life”, sort’ve speak, are, in a sense, trying to “play God”. And therefore, by SO doing, they are technically giving (rather they fully realize it or not), demonic spirits the official SPIRITUAL “doorway” or “invitation” they need, in order to “inhabit” any and all of their (the scientists’) “scientific *projects*” concerning robotics.

And with “demons” (through the form of “robots”) ruling over humans, can you IMAGINE how that’s gonna turn out? And here is where things get very “dark”, INDEED! After demonic spirits come to inhabit all the robots (it’s not a question of IF but WHEN, if not already so), they will become an INTEGRAL part in the Mark of the Beast system.

How? Robotics/advanced technology will become SO ingrained into the worldwide economic system that it’ll soon be impossible for a human to buy or sell without it. In other words, it will be the EPITOME of the Mark of the Beast system. Robots/advanced technology will provide the type of “cyborg-ish environment” for the Mark of the Beast to take root. But the Mark of the Beast is NOT JUST about robotics/advanced technology. It’s also about WORSHIP, worship of THE BEAST/THE BEAST SYSTEM!

“So then WHOM or WHAT constitutes THE BEAST and/or THE BEAST SYSTEM?”, someone may be asking. Back in ancient biblical times, “The Beast system” constituted the “Mystery Religion/Ancient Babylon”. Why? Because the spiritual kingdom of Babylon (remember folks, it was just as much a “SPIRITUAL” kingdom of darkness, just as much as it was an EARTHLY kingdom) wanted NOTHING to do with HEBRAIC JUDAISM/JESUS/THE 10 COMMANDMENTS and wanted EVERYTHING to do with what was seen as morally wrong in the Lord’s site (abortion, fornication, adultery, sexual perversity, sacrificing children/newborns to Molech, bowing down to idols/graven images, etc.)

And today, in the year 2017, things are really no different. For the SAME EXACT THINGS that took place in ancient Babylon are now taking place here in America and around the world. For just like the ancient Jews that decided they’d rather turn their back on Jesus/the 10 commandments and EMBRACE BABYLONIAN PAGANISM, many of today’s global citizens (ESPECIALLY AMERICANS) are doing the exact same.

For just like the ancient Babylonians (as well as the Jews who decided to REBEL against God/Jesus), they are EMBRACING things that are an ABOMINATION onto the Lord God Almighty (abortion, divorce, adultery, fornication, sexual perversity, bowing down to idols/graven images, etc.)

Therefore, “Mystery Babylon” is just as much of a dark, spiritual city today as it was back in ancient biblical times. Things haven’t changed. [Thou to SPECIFY, there were TWO groups of Jews back in ancient biblical times…….those who chose to OBEY God’s commandments and those who chose to DISOBEY God’s commandments. The ones who chose to OBEY God’s commandments AND accepted Jesus as their Messiah are today known as the “Messianic Jews”. Those who choose to DISOBEY and/or REJECT Jesus as the Messiah- which, sadly, was the MAJORITY – became what’s known as today’s Pagans and/or “Orthodox Jews”]. 

The “Messianic Jews” are part of the SMALL REMNANT of God’s people that Jesus was talking about in Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. And this small remnant ALSO includes Judeo-Christians, those Christians who choose to obey the ENTIRE bible, not just half of it or a misguided interpretation OF it.

But going back to the jist of the message. Artificial intelligence is gonna be a HUGE part of the Beast system/The Antichrist Kingdom on the Earth. The Antichrist is not only gonna utilize artificial intelligence to CREATE his specific “Mark” but he will also use it to create a life-like “form” of the Beast! (And The Beast is none other than Satan himself!)

Revelation 13: 13-18 says: 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 13:14-15 REALLY seems to be talking about modern-day “artificially-intelligent robots” (or more specifically, A artificially intelligent robot). For, according to the bible, not only can the “image” SPEAK…….but it has the ability to TERMINATE ALL THAT REFUSE TO WORSHIP IT! And so essentially, it’ll be likened onto a Skynet-esque “Terminator”-type “thing” that’s indwelt by Satan himself! Only THIS time, it won’t be a movie folks, it’ll soon be REALITY! (Provides a whole new meaning to “unleashing the beast”, now, doesn’t it?)

But HERE’S one thing we need to realize, folks. “The Beast” is now being unleashed EVERYWHERE, from the latest music and movies to TV shows, to magazine and album covers, to the “latest technology”, you name it. But there is a DIFFERENCE between “Unleashed” and UNVEILED! Biblically speaking, “Unleashed” just means that Satan and his demons are free to wreck spiritual havoc upon mankind. But “Unveiled” means that Satan comes out from the shadows and MAKES HIS PRESENCE FULLY KNOWN! He will do this through his “image”, his “life-like image” that’ll be created by the Antichrist/the Antichrist’s team of “rogue scientists”.

In fact, I’ll even take this a step further. Could it even be possible that the Antichrist himself will be some sort of “cyborg” that will then create ANOTHER life-like “image of the beast”, with THAT “image” being both speaking and moving? Just a thought. Because in my spirit, I get the feeling that the Antichrist is not even human. There’s something about him that has to be anti-human since all NATURAL humans are created in the image of God. And we know that Satan likes to INVERT God’s creation at every chance and turn. Therefore, Satan would NOT want to “indwell” someone made in God’s own image or projecting God’s own image on the outside. But he’d instead most definitely want to “indwell” someone that was either NOT made in God’s image………say……a “test tube baby?” An “cyborgish Android”? OR that PERVERTED God’s image (say, a “transgender?”)

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 Alexa” 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 really 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

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 Alexa” 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 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?

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”. Is it WORTH losing your eternal salvation over, folks? Think about that long and hard before you buy one!

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!
