Has Amazon Alexa Become “Another Jesus?”

After coming across TWO seemingly conservative and/or Christian publications that more or less looked to Alexa as “being some sort of god“, I felt compelled to shed some TRUE biblical light on the matter!

First of, Alexa (in and of itself) is in NO way, shape or form God or A god! Lets just be VERY clear on this, folks! The bible says there’s only ONE true God (Jesus Christ Almighty). All other “gods” are just worthless “imitations!”

The first publication was from Christianity Today (of ALL places!) In THIS September 2018’s issue, on page 30, written in green bold letters, declares the following: 

ALEXA IN CT

My soul is BEYOND GRIEVED over this! My soul was HYSTERICALLY SCREAMING ON THE INSIDE when I read this! WHAT BLASPHEMY!!!!!!! ;( Since WHEN has Alexa (in and of ITSELF) become a “Savior” to anyone IN PLACE OF JESUS? This was both SHOCKING and HORRIFYING to me! But folks, it doesn’t stop THERE……..it gets worse! Much, much worse……..:( 

ANOTHER CT (Christianity Today) article from 1/6/2017 reads like THIS: “Amazon’s Alexa Delivers Your Daily Devo in Your Favorite Authors’ Voices. Okay folks, if the line “your favorite author’s voices wasn’t weird enough, it’s the very first line in that article that’s produced one of THE MOST blasphemous lines in Christianity EVER UTTERED!

“ASK ALEXA AND IT WILL BE GIVEN YOU“. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, FOLKS!?? This flies DIRECTLY in the face of JESUS’S VERY OWN WORDS in Matthew 7:7-8 (nevertheless, during one of his MOST IMPORTANT biblical sermons, the SERMON ON THE MOUNT):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 what, Alexa replaces Jesus now? WHAT IS THIS? I guess it’s not surprising overall since Christianity Today has started to turn more “liberal” throughout the past few years, but that one line really tops the cake! (And what breaks my heart the most is that the author just has NO IDEA how spiritually deceived she is {or was?} when she wrote the article! I pray that Jesus Christ has mercy upon her soul!)

Another line in the article states, ‘As YouVersion put it, “Speak, and let God’s inspired Word speak to you.” At first glance, the “concept” of this might not seem so bad. But folks, we’ve got to truly examine this piece by piece, layer by layer, BIBLICALLY! God’s Written Word is supposed to speak to us in our SPIRITS, not through some artificially intelligent device that ALSO says such things such as: “Jesus Christ is a mythical being”.

In other words, the article actually encourages Christians to put their faith, trust and love into ALEXA ITSELF, instead of into Jesus Christ (where is where all their faith, trust and love SHOULD BE!) Does anyone else see the spiritual trouble in this? Most spiritual skeptics would probably tout it off as: “Oh, it’s just an app/technology, it’s not like anybody truly worships it (as in prays to it), right?” 

Well, enter the next article……more or less from Fox News (what’s supposed to be considered a highly conservative site!) The article headline (OP) from 9/1/18 reads: “MY DAUGHTER PRAYED TO ALEXA……..” 

Can anyone see what’s wrong with that? I see several things wrong, here. First off is that his daughter PRAYED to Alexa – the way a born-again Christian person would normally pray to Jesus! Therefore, if Alexa (in and of ITSELF) has now become likened onto a “new Jesus”, then Houston, we’ve got a problem!

But that’s just ONE parent who’s publicly admitted their kid prayed to “Alexa”. What about all the OTHER parents out there that let their kids do the same? What about all the so-called born-again Christians out there who’ve “innocently” (or so they told themselves, anyways) PRAYED to Alexa?

In SO many different type of ways, Alexa has become likened onto a “god” or a “new Jesus”. And if that doesn’t send spiritual shivers down one’s spine, then I don’t know what would! Many people – even Christians alike – are now starting to treat Alexa “as if she were an actual person!” But again, it all goes back to the artificial technology thing. It’s one of the most powerful spiritual deceptors!

Satan likely asked his demons: “How can we make talking to demons both innovative, affordable, fun, convenient, and ADDICTIVE?”. “I know”, a demon likely said. “*Family-Friendly Artificial intelligence*”. And thus, the “Alexa” and “Siri” etc. was born! And as time goes on, the “technology” is becoming more and more advanced! And oddly enough, the more “advanced” the technology becomes, the more “human” it tries to make ITSELF look and the more “addicting” it becomes!

That’s why I say if you have an “Alexa”, UNPLUG IT!!! Let Satan and his demons know that you will NOT take part in their ungodly schemes to SUCK AWAY YOUR SOUL! And IF you see an ad promoting “Christian programming” on Alexa, PAY IT NO ATTENTION! For it’s Satan’s hope that you will USE Alexa’s “Christian programming” INSTEAD OF reading your bible, in the hopes that he’ll be able to DECEIVE YOU AWAY FROM A TRUE SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST! Cause remember folks, that’s what this technology was *DESIGNED* to do – to take you AWAY from Jesus Christ/Salvation!

Now, I know there’s probably gonna be some Christians out there who disagree with me, (specifically those who play BotRadioNetwork and what not). But folks, I’m telling you, this “talking A.I. thing” is one THE MOST POWERFUL spiritual deceptors that Satan has on the market! Why? Because it seems so “innocent”. It doesn’t have glowing red eyes or a “demonic voice”. It doesn’t “openly” (as far as I know) glorify Satan. And yet, it spiritually glorifies Satan all the same. Why? Because instead of Jesus Christ himself that we’re talking to, we’re talking to this “device” that Satan only WANTS us to think is “human”.

Furthermore, if ALL a Christian is doing is playing BotRadioNetwork on their “Alexa” and NOT reading the bible and NOT spending time in reflection and in prayer, then they’re listening to that “Christian programming” in vain, do you see where I’m going with this, folks? As a human species, we have short attention spans. We can listen to ALL the Christian programming we want to but if we’re also not APPLYING it to our LIVES, then the Christian programming and us listening to it has done us no service! Make sense? And not only that, but do YOU trust Alexa to give you the CORRECT bible passage (and its context) from the CORRECT bible version (KJV)? 

Here is just a random online photo I found which pretty much illustrates the point that I’m trying to make throughout this entire post (about the “heavenly glorifying” OF Alexa by “lukewarm Christians/people in general”):

ALEXA WITH ANGEL WINGS

And I can see right now where Satan is going with *allowing* all the “Christian programming” on Alexa……He wants to TWIST that Christian programming to HIS ungodly glory! And how does he do that, folks? Easy. When Christian people (and families) put all their glory INTO the Christian programming (and Alexa) ITSELF rather than into JESUS CHRIST (where all the glory giving BELONGS!) He can also utilize the Alexa to tout off watered-down or incorrect bible versions or passages, as well as “liberalize” and “relevise” the gospel!  

And believe it or not, both “Siri” and “Alexa” were actually “testing grounds” for a much BIGGER spiritual project that Satan had up his sleeve – The “Image of the Beast” and “real-life Skynet”. Okay, so what’s Skynet, some of you might be asking? Skynet is the name of the A.I. company in The Terminator movies with Arnold Schwarzenegger. [And if you haven’t watched the movies, I’d highly recommend going to Youtube to watch the movie TRAILERS, so you know and can see firsthand what I’m talking about here: especially part 3 and part 6?]

But anyways, Skynet (or the “concept” of it, anyways) is actually a REAL organization, folks! So what does that mean in plain English, folks? It means that they – the elite – knew ALL ALONG that robots/machines/Androids would someday take over the world (and natural-born humans) and thus, developed an organization that has attempted (and is attempting) to “control the tech”. However, as it is in The Terminator movies, the “tech” will someday SUPERCEDE all human intelligence, and then improve on its OWN intelligence, until it spirals out of control. This is what’s known as “The Singularity”.

So how do “Siri”, “Ok Google” and “Alexa” fit in to all of this? Simple. They are part of the building blocks that Satan will use to “build on”. Think of ALL the plugged-in Alexas there are in the world today, for instance. Then imagine all the CYBER-KINETIC POWER that generates. And that’s just a small PIECE of the puzzle that will someday soon become known as “the real-like Skynet”.

Okay, lets delve a little deeper into this for a moment. Siri, Ok Google and Alexa are just “spiritual doorways”. And what lies beyond those doorways is nothing good, trust me on this! Sophia is the Greek Word for “Wisdom”. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the latest A.I. Android robot is named “Sophia”.

However, what we need to understand here is that Sophia, Han, Bina48, etc. run on what’s called “block-chain technology”. In other words, ALL Android robots are “plugged into” and run on the same “computer database”. And it’s actually a DE-centralized centralized computer “database” – meaning, a centralized database that is DE-centralized and isn’t solely controlled by any one gov’t or group of people – run on Quantam computers, the FASTEST computers known to man. One Android can acquire skills from another Android and so on and so forth (real-life Skynet, anyone?) And each Android BECOMES SMARTER & SMARTER over time.

Now, do Siri, Alexa and Ok Google ALSO run on “block-chain technology?” Your guess is as good as mine. But given as how Alexa “acquires” such a GROWING number of skills in such a SHORT amount of time would lead me to believe that they ARE using some sort of “block-chain technology”. But yet, one thing is apparent, here; Siri, Alexa and Ok Google will no doubt play a HUGE ROLE in Mark of the Beast/Image of the Beast Technology. In fact, I can picture the Amazon Alexa interacting with the “Mark of the Beast” and the “Image of the Beast” and vice versa.

That being said, are YOU saved in the name of Jesus? If YOU were to die tomorrow, do YOU know for sure that YOU’D go to heaven? If not, then why not? What do YOU plan to do to change that? Folks, we NEVER know when we’re gonna die! It could be tomorrow, next week, next year, 15 years from now, WHENEVER! And once we die, that’s IT! There’s no purgatory, no riding a spiritual subway train for years, no becoming your neighbor’s potted plant, no beer and pool party!

Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”

 

Procrastination: Jesus’s tears & the Devil’s playground.

“It’s okay. I’ll do it tomorrow”. And then the next day rolls around. “I don’t feel like it today. I’ll do it tomorrow”. And yet a third day rolls forth and again we say to yourselves “nah, this really don’t have to be done today. I can always do this later”.

Well, guess what, people! Jesus Christ is not a “part-time” God! Which is why we ourselves can not be “part-time” servants! The Lord up in heaven is rolling about 24/7 and doesn’t take any “breaks”, so why should WE?

Many tragedies in our very own lives could’ve been prevented had we listened to the true spiritual voice of Jesus. In fact, we could’ve prevented many bad relationships/marriages and/or situations if we had listened to Jesus Christ and done what HE wanted us to do at the time that HE wanted us to do it!

For example, lets say you’re a woman who’s caught up in the wrong relationship….a relationship that’s taking you away from Jesus. So the Lord says to that woman “leave him. Forget him and follow me, instead”. If you’re like most women who’s desperately in love with your man, you’re probably gonna cling to your man for awhile and “put off” leaving him, telling yourself “it’s okay, I’ll do it in a couple of days” or “I’ll do it a couple of weeks from now”. And then 1 week turns into 1 month turns into YEARS. And lets face it, that is WILLFUL DISOBEDIENCE of the Lord’s will. And we only have to turn to Revelation in the bible to see the fate of those unrepentant sinners who are either “blissfully unaware” of their sins or that CHOOSE to continue to live in them….Need I say anything more?

Or perhaps you’re a man or woman who was either layed off or quit your job. And so the Lord says “find another job”. And well, in today’s economy, it’s quite TEMPTING to give in to feelings of fear, disillusionment, anger…..even laziness. But the longer we “put off” trying to find a job, the longer we are actually giving in to Satan and Satan’s power and once again drowning out the voice of Jesus.

That’s all procrastination really boils down to. Drowning out the voice of Jesus Christ.

And then there’s those unfortunate souls out there who KNOW they are not right with God, who KNOW there’s things they must still do/repent of and of whom KNOW they’re not doing what Jesus asked/that they are “knowingly” drowning out the voice of Jesus. But yet, they turn around and *lament* about their knowledge that they are headed for HELL when they die….

Well, my friends, Jesus Christ can NOT help you if you don’t cry out to him. Even if you don’t FEEL like crying out to him, do it anyways! TRUST ME ON THIS!

Pray to him “Lord, I feel angry, I feel disillusioned with the job market, I feel drained of energy and lazy. I know I’m not right with you. I know I’ve lost my motivation to be right with you. But please GIVE ME the motivation to be right with you. Please guide me INTO a right path with you. Please make your heavenly voice SO LOUD within my soul that there’s NO mistaking it and NO drowning it out, no matter what. Please make your will SO obvious that to me, it’s UNDENIABLE. Please show me what I’m doing right and what I need to do better. Oh Lord, please have mercy on me, a sinner!”

Now, going back to how Jesus wants us to do things at times when HE wants us to do it. Perhaps you’re at the grocery store and the Lord suddenly wants you to ask someone a question (even if the question isn’t anything about religion). But you think that’s weird and so you don’t do it. And then, that person later ends up getting injured by a drunk driver. Maybe those 30+ seconds spent asking them the question would’ve delayed the time-plane interval enough where they wouldn’t have gotten into the accident….

See, the Lord knows everything that’s gonna happen way ahead of time. Just like the Lord also knows how to prevent certain things, as well. However, the Lord can NOT intervene with human free will. So theoretically speaking, rather or not “person B” ended up later getting injured by a drunk driver was dependent on rather or not “person A” at the grocery store decided to exercise their free will to “serve the Lord” or NOT serve the Lord, see? The Lord’s theoretical request for us to stop and ask someone a question in the grocery store might not make sense to US but it makes perfect sense to HIM, see? There’s divine reasoning for EVERYTHING he asks us to do (both great and small). And when we DELAY to do it or don’t do it AT ALL (whatever he asks us to do WHEN he asks us to do it), consequences often strike.

The devil is very, very good at getting us to procrastinate and question things, question ourselves, question God, etc. (Believe me, I know from personal experience, here). And though we don’t always realize it, whenever we “stray” from Jesus, Jesus is not only ANGRY but he is FULL OF TEARS.

Have you ever felt or sensed the anger AND the “tears” of Jesus Christ when we’ve said/done something wrong? “I” have and it’s not a great feeling.

But then, the devil tries to FEED off that “guilt” we feel over displeasing Jesus Christ and tries to get us to believe that we are SO BAD, SO FILTHY in the Lord’s site, that the Lord Jesus will NEVER forgive us and accept us back. But my friend, these are all lies!

Jesus Christ LOVES YOU! And he wants to have a spiritual relationship with you! But he can’t do that if you won’t let him! REPENT of your sins and stop doing them! Read the bible! Get baptized in Jesus’s name! Get to know Jesus TODAY!

And if you’ve been straying from Jesus lately, COME BACK TO HIM! Don’t worry, don’t be scared. Jesus Christ will accept you back with wide, OPEN ARMS (provided you truly repented of your sins and prayed for FORGIVENESS of your sins).

Satan’s War On the Soul Through *Music*

Many experts say that “media doesn’t effect people” or “it’s ONLY music”, “it’s ONLY a book”, “it’s ONLY a tv show”, etc. But clearly, “mass media” (specifically music) DOES effect people.

Just look at all the people on Youtube, Facebook, Myspace who post “cover songs”, “parodies”, “imitations of others” or videos about a 3-year old crying over a “pop music star” and we KNOW firsthand that media DOES in fact “effect people”.

Satan uses MANY tricks, ploys, people around us and distractions/gimmicks to try to get us as far AWAY from the true gospel of Jesus Christ/Salvation as much as possible! He does this because he is the “Master Deceiver” and the “Father of All Lies”. There is no truth in him!

And the truth is, ALL music is meant to put the listener in a trance/meditative state. But rather it’s a good trance or a bad trance will ofcourse depend on the listenerer themselves and the song itself.

Is it a good song that uplifts the spirit and encourages our very own soul spirit to worship Jesus Christ in all his power & glory in the heavens or is it a song that decieves and distracts us and takes us AWAY from the true gospel of Jesus Christ, on the subconscious level?

Have you ever had a song that was stuck in your head and kept playing over and over again in your mind and you couldn’t figure out why? And then, you’d stop trying to think of THAT song, only to have ANOTHER song get stuck in your head? There is a REASON that happens!

Here, Pastor JD Farag talks about the “dangers” of music and how Satan uses music to “destroy the soul”.

http://www.youtube.com/user/alohabibleprophecy#p/u/9/GKMTE6AXjII

And in this powerful & riveting “rockumentary”, it discusses things about the music industry you never even knew!!!! A MUST-SEE!

http://www.youtube.com/my_playlists?p=E1BFD865A08E6C1B&pi=0

A third must-see is the documentary entitled “The Distraction Dilemma” by Christian Berdahl

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki3-VcoEkfY

Many songs are based on African tribal “voodoo beats”. Just think of how many songs today have “repetitive drum beats” in them. And trust me, there’s a REASONING for that!

And have you ever wondered why each “song” has an “introduction” before the lyrics even come about? The meaning of a song’s introduction is to put the listener into a “trance-like state” so that by the time the music starts to play, the listener is already in a “trance” and isn’t fully cognizant of the “meaning behind the music”.

How many of us have liked a song based on the “beat” and the beat, ALONE? Not really being fully aware of the song’s lyrics or what they were about? Plus how many songs have you heard where the lyrics are somewhat “blurred” and hard to figure out? Trust me, there’s a reasoning for all that!

It’s highly believed by some biblical scholars that Satan was the “choir leader” in heaven (before the fall)! From the way the bible describes, it sounds as if he were a walking. talking music “instrument” himself! So then, is it really any wonder that Satan uses modern day music to DESTROY PEOPLE FROM WITHIN?

Just look at any modern day music video by Cyrus, Gaga, Perry, Gomez, etc. and you will see blatant sexuality, dark Satanic themes, and the full-out mocking of Jesus Christ and the bible! Have you EVER seen a music video or rock song mock Joseph Smith, Allah, Buddha, Krishna, etc? Even ONE? And why is that, do you think? On the other hand, just how many rock/popular songs have we seen that have actually MOCKED Jesus Christ and the bible? Too many to count, right?

Which begs of question: what is so darn THREATENING about a LOVING GOD, that loved the world and humanity SO MUCH, that he sent his one and only begotten Son, Jesus Christ Almighty, to die on a Roman cross for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins? Because lets face it, Joseph Smith isn’t going to save a person from the eternal flames of God, neither is the Virgin Mary or Krishna or Buddha or Satan himself, for that matter!

Satan KNOWS he can’t just full out come out at us full-speed ahead and ANNOUNCE his presence as in: “hi, I’m Satan and I’m here to deceive you!” He knows he has to be much more “subtle” than that and so MUSIC is the means by which he DOES just that!

Did you know that before a song or album goes out on the market, it is placed on a Satanic altar and has demon spirits conjured INTO the “master copy” of a song and that the demon “spirits” then follow every subsequent “copy” that is made of the song?

Like, sit back and really think about this for awhile. After listening to today’s “popular music”, do you feel CLOSER to God/Jesus Christ or more ALIENATED from God/Jesus Christ? Truly think about it and be honest with yourselves! Because today’s music and today’s “music industry”, in and of itself, was designed by Satan to try to take you AWAY from Jesus Christ and his gospel of salvation!

Even today’s “Christian music” is suspect. It gots what I call the “clap beat” in most of the songs, strong “drumming”, electric guitars, etc. And the lyrics to many of the songs are so “sultry”. I begin to feel as though it’s some woman singing to her “lover”, rather than singing to God/Jesus Christ. I know most of you probably know what I’m talking about, right there.

Not to mention that many of today’s “Christian artists” have actually come out and admitted that they’re not IN it for God/Jesus Christ but are rather in it “for the money”, as the following article demonstrates:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/style-blog/wp/2014/06/19/convicted-singer-of-christian-metal-band-as-i-lay-dying-comes-out-as-an-atheist/

Sadly, this case is not the “outlier”! Many from the “secular music world” have now gone into the “Christian market” since “there’s more money in it” (NO JOKE!)

So please, don’t be deceived! Be VERY, VERY mindful of the “music” you listen to! Even today’s “Christian music”. Even INSTRUMENTAL music (such as “Trance Music”). Satan has MANY, MANY, MANY ways by which to “musically deceive” us. However, it doesn’t mean we have to listen to him! In fact, it’s better to defy modern-day music altogether and just listen to songs like “Greensleeves”, “How he loves us”, “Let them see you in me”, etc.

“Lord Jesus, in your great, heavenly name, I pray that ALL souls who are currently bound to “modern day music” will soon have their souls UN-CHAINED from such “music” and be set free from it! I pray that you will open up their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to the truth about the DAMAGES of modern day music to one’s soul and mind and that you will enlighten them to the TRUTH about today’s modern day “music industry” and how truly evil and Satanic it is! I also pray that you will point such souls towards music that is soul-UPLIFTING, instead of soul-DAMNING! Please use YOUR own heavenly music and song to draw them closer TO you, Lord, instead of farther away from you! Please don’t allow Satan to musically deceive them, anymore! Amen”.
