Enhancements in technologies over the last century have improved our way of life with the invention of electricity, light bulbs, refrigeration, calculators, computers, phones, smart devices, and much more. As our technologies advance and evolve to improve our lives for the better, what happens when the technology becomes super intelligent? What happens when technological advancements surpass all human understanding where humans no longer have full control of their smart intelligent devices? This fear is already here with the exponential increases in artificial intelligence (AI). With the continued increases in computer and information technology, this has paved the way for more AI devices to evolve by the way of cloud computing, data storage farms, and high speed communications in order to handle all the big data required for AI machine learning. The Investopedia defines AI as “the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions…and…to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem-solving.” The main characteristics of AI are “its ability to rationalize and take actions that have the best chance of achieving a specific goal…machine learning, which refers to the concept that computer programs can automatically learn from and adapt to new data WITHOUT being assisted by HUMANs. Deep learning techniques enable this automatic learning through the absorption of huge amounts of unstructured data…” AI machines are equipped with complex computer simulations of so-called human intelligence that have the capability to perform UNSUPERVISED cognitive activities such as, learning, reasoning, and perception. As AI machines perform their own learning and reasoning, they continuously improve by enhancing or re-writing their own code simulations, where superintelligence evolves into what is known as technology singularity. Singularity is the fear of when “technology growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization…” Many experts believe this superintelligence singularity would result in our human extinction! Elon Musk, owner of Tesla and SpaceX, was so fearful of AI that in 2014 he warned we were “summoning the demon.” Elon, in 2014, tried to buy out a major AI developer, DeepMind, but was unsuccessful to Google. In 2016, Elon co-founded Neuralink, which “is a neurotechnology company developing implantable brain-machine interfaces (BMIs)…with a long-term goal to achieve ‘symbiosis with artificial intelligence.’ ”
God’s word tells us that we cannot serve Him and demons as we read in 1 Corinthians 10:21-22, “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?” How far has AI evolved? Just last year in 2020, Forbes announced that the US lost over 60 million jobs to high tech machines and robotics controlled by AI. This trend will continue in the coming years with estimates as high as 50% of the workforce being replaced by AI controlled smart machines in various industries of agriculture, banking, business, computer, education, engineering, entertainment, financial, government, industrial, information systems, manufacturing, medical, military, music, retail, science, services, sports, transportation, etc. The big push in using AI over humans provides major cost savings and efficiency gains. AI can work around the clock (24/7) and does not require lunch breaks, vacations, paid time off, health insurance benefits, employee raises/evaluations, employee retirement plans, workers comp, HR interface, etc. As AI approaches singularity, it’s knowledge will far outpace humanity. The bible predicted this would happen approximately 2,700 years ago by the prophet Daniel where it stated in Daniel 12:4, “But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” We believe that one of the signs that we are living in the last days is that AI is the major advancement in knowledge (speaking one language – machine language) that is currently surpassing all human understanding and was predicted many years ago. The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, said in 2017, “the nation that leads in AI will be the ruler of the world.” The bible explained a similar event that took place over 4,200 years ago that involved the construction of the tower of Babel, where all the people came together and spoke one language. The people wanted to build a tower to reach the heavens and to become like God. They were under the wicked and mighty ruler Nimrod (a giant and mighty hunter having incredible strength). As they came against God, He confused their language as we read in Genesis 11:1-9, “Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, ‘Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.’ And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar. Then they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.’ And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the LORD said, ‘Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.’ So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth. And from there the LORD dispersed them over the face of all the earth.”
With the development of BMIs in combination with AI today, resembles what we know as the mark of the beast that the Antichrist will use for his purpose as we read in Revelation 13:15-18, “And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. Also, it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.” God also instructs His angels to provide warnings to everyone who were left behind to NOT take the mark of the beast or you will suffer His wrath as explained in Revelation 14:9-11, “And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.’ ” Also, during the great tribulation where the sixth angel sounds the trumpet, the remaining wicked humans that did not die during God’s Wrath still chose NOT to repent to God and continued worshipping demons and idols as stated in Revelation 9:20-21, “The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.” We see another example of this where the people continued to rebel against God in Revelation 16:8-9, “The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people with fire. They were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues. They did not repent and give Him glory.”
With many biblical signs indicating we are in the last days, the rapture and tribulation are fast approaching. We can all escape God’s Wrath by being counted worthy to be raptured if we call upon the name of Jesus to be saved? – Romans 10:10-13. You can escape God’s Final Judgement by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior – Titus 2:13. Do you know where you will spend eternity after you die on earth? Will Jesus be your Lord and Savior or your eternal judge – John 3:15-21, Romans 2:16, 2 Timothy 4:1? Jesus says He is the narrow gate to heaven where it is difficult to find and only a few will enter by it where many will enter the easy, wide and broad gate that leads to Hell and destruction – Matthew 7:13-14. Will you experience the second eternal death (spiritual death) – Revelation 2:11, Revelation 20:6, Revelation 21:8? Do you know for sure that you are written in the eternal Lamb’s Book of Life – Revelation 3:5, Revelation 20:12-15?
