DAILY SCRIPTURE:

 

THEY WILL NOT TASTE DEATH

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/they-will-not-taste-death/

QUESTION:   I am reading the book of Mark and have a question about chapter 9. And he said to them, “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power. Who was Jesus talking about not tasting death?

ANSWER:   Jesus was talking about Peter, James and John. Six days after He said this, He took these three disciples with him up the Mt. of Transfiguration. There they were momentarily transported to the time of the 2nd Coming where they saw Moses and Elijah talking with the Lord in His glory. They also saw the cloud that represents the Holy Spirit and heard the voice of God (Mark 9:2-8). Just as He had promised, these disciples had seen the time of the 2nd Coming before they died.

 

PHYSICAL DEATH AND SPIRITUAL DEATH

QUESTION:   Concerning the fate of the lost: Punishment does not mean the same as punishing. If one is burned up and ceases to be, the punishment is eternal. If the burning was to go on for that individual forever, would it not be called “eternal punishing? The death penalty is different from life imprisonment with no parole. It has been said that Adam was created with eternal life but lost it for all of us. Since then, all humans are born with a body and soul but have to believe (born again) in order to receive eternal life. How then can the unsaved then live forever?

ANSWER:   Remember that physical death and spiritual death are different. Physical death is when the body ceases to function, but spiritual death is eternal separation from God, because our spirits are immortal. Therefore, even when a person is physically dead his or her spirit is still very much alive.

The first mention of two resurrections in the Bible is in Daniel 12:2 which says some will be resurrected to everlasting life while others will be resurrected to shame and everlasting contempt. The Hebrew word for everlasting is the same for the living as for those who suffer contempt. It means eternal, perpetual, or forever.

And in a New Testament parallel, Jesus said believing tribulation survivors will receive eternal life, while their unbelieving counterparts will receive eternal punishment (Matt. 25:46). Again, the same Greek word for “eternal” is used in both cases. It means means “without end, never to cease, everlasting.”

These two examples confirm that if believers will receive life without end, then unbelievers will receive punishment without end.

So the second death is being punished forever. Isaiah 66:24 says “their worm will not die, nor will their fire be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.” They won’t cease to exist and the fire will never go out.

For news to be read and understood by a great number of people, it must be simple, sensational and forgettable. Most individuals are not interested in “heavy” news or complicated issues. Just compare television and newspapers today to say 50 years ago. At that time, newspapers had very few pictures but instead covered serious matters with in depth analysis. Same with television. In the 1960s there was serious news and many programmes which raised important issues in society or politics, which many people listened to and grasped.

Today everything must be dumbed down to the lowest common denominator of readers or viewers.  For a paper to sell or a television station to receive advertising revenue, any news must be superficial and short. Most content must have an entertainment or gossip value. Same with television. All serious matters are either left out or covered very briefly. We are now in the age of instant gratification. Viewers’ interest can only be kept by short superficial language, lots of big images and constant change of focus. On television, no camera position must remain on one subject for more than a few seconds because people’s attention span only lasts for a brief moment.

The age of misinformation and ignorance

This has led to most people either becoming ignorant or misinformed. The political correctness contributes to the misinformation since, to a great extent, minorities determine what is politically correct. The French lawyer and politician, instrumental in the French Revolution was well aware of this:

Not only are the media dumbed down but so is the education system in the West. The general standard of education both at school and college level is continuously declining. I know this from my own background. Although I went to good schools, my father’s education was superior to mine and mine is superior to that of my children and grandchildren.

The beauty of not educating people is that it is much easier for the politicians and powers that be to use propaganda and to manipulate them. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the financial system. We have in the last 100 years, since the Fed was created, experienced the worst possible destruction of money without anyone being aware. For most people, this has involved a destruction of savings and pensions and a massive accumulation of debt, both individual and government. For the creators of this system, the beauty is that it has been done so elegantly that very few people are aware.

Keynes was not always wrong

Keynes got many things wrong but the above statement is spot on. The systematic destruction of the value of money is impossible for most people to measure or understand. People used to keep their savings in the bank and receive a real return on the money. But as the value of money was gradually destroyed, people lost their savings and started borrowing instead. No one understood that they were getting poorer. Only a minority had assets such as stocks and property that appreciated. Most people did not realise that the value of their money was going down as real inflation went up. The problem is also that governments never publish honest figures. All statistics are manipulated in order to hide the truth. Official inflation figures are always below the real inflation rate. This is done to hide the mismanagement of the economy and to save on indexed payments such as social security and pensions.

No one is interested in the truth

John Williams Shadow Government Statistics helps us to find the truth. Just look at his real inflation calculation since 1981. Real inflation has been well above the official figures since the early 1980s.

Gold reveals the truth

Throughout history, gold has been an excellent indicator of real purchasing power. A good suit for a man for example cost 1 ounce of gold 2,000 years ago and costs the same today. The reason gold tells the truth is that, as opposed to paper money, it can’t be printed. Gold is also a store of value. That is certainly not the case with paper money which is just a liability since it is only based on debt. The qualities of gold are also proven in its longevity since it is the only money that has survived throughout history.

Just look at what has happened to all the major currencies since the Fed was created. In the chart below, gold represents stable purchasing power with the straight line at 100. We can see how the Mark first collapsed in the early 1920s due to war debts and unlimited money printing. The UK and Japan followed as they abandoned the gold standard. And then we have the spectacular fall of the dollar form 1971 when Nixon gave up the gold backing.

Dollar and other currencies are approaching ZERO value

Few Americans are aware that their real purchasing power has declined by 97% since that illustrious day on August 15, 1971 when Nixon sold the US down the drain. It is now only a matter of time until the dollar goes to ZERO. Since 1971, money printing and credit expansion has grown exponentially. But the average American hasn’t got a clue because the media never discusses “irrelevant” matters like the destruction of the US currency and economy. It is much more important to follow what Justin Bieber is doing or who Trump’s team talked to before the election.

The US is now on the verge of economic, political and military collapse. Based on history, most countries in that situation will start a war. Let us hope that this does not involve a major nuclear conflict, the consequences of which will be disastrous for the world.

Hyperinflation is inevitable

What is guaranteed is that the final stages will involve massive money printing leading to hyperinflation. This is the only remedy left to a bankrupt nation which has not had a real budget surplus for soon 60 years. Very few have experienced hyperinflation but the ones who have know that it happens a lot quicker than we realise.

If we look at the Weimar Republic in Germany in the early 1920s, we can see how quickly it goes. The chart below shows hyperinflation measured through the gold price. From early 1919 to early 1920 gold in Marks went up “only” 10x. Then it went up another 10x to the middle of 1921. And then gold really took off or more correctly money printing went wild. So from mid 1922 gold went from 10,000 Marks in 1922 to 100 trillion in 1923.

Could we see a similar move in coming years? Well, we will only know afterwards. What we do know is that global debt has gone up exponentially in the last 2-3 decades. We also know that none of this debt can ever be repaid with real money. If we include derivatives and unfunded liabilities, we are looking at a global debt level of $2.5 quadrillion. That is 35x global GDP, an astronomical figure that is guaranteed to lead to catastrophe. We just had the proof from the BIS (Bank of International Settlement) in Basel last week that derivatives are another form of debt. BIS discovered that $14 trillion of Forex swaps was just a method of hiding debt off balance sheet. This is really nothing new since Goldman had already illicitly assisted Greece to hide their debt in 2001 to come within the Eurozone criteria. This was also done with currency swaps. All this confirms that the derivatives must be counted as debt, especially when counterparty fails.

Gold is insurance against a rotten world

I get comments from some people who are concerned that the gold price is not going up fast enough. For people who are not speculators or short term investors, gold is bought for the very important purpose of wealth preservation. Gold is owned for insurance against a rotten world, financially and economically. When we buy insurance, it is not because we want the risks we are protecting against to happen as soon as possible. When we buy fire insurance, we know we need to have it before the fire. But once we have it, we are not hoping for the fire to start straight away. But if it happens it is good to have.

Gold is really the best insurance that anyone can own because it has an intrinsic value and it appreciates over time against paper money. If and when gold reaches $100 trillion like with the Mark in 1923, the world will have massive problems. So it is not really something to look forward to. But what we do know is that, at that point, our capital is protected as most assets, including stocks, bonds and property, will collapse in real terms.

The coming hyperinflation might not be as high as in the Weimar Republic. But even if gold just goes up to the inflation adjusted level since the1980 high, it would today be $15,500.

So I advise investors to buy their insurance and then just be patient. The outcome of the failed 100 year experiment in money creation is guaranteed to be catastrophic for the world. There is no reason to wish for it to happen quickly. Because when it happens everyone will suffer even if the financial pain is likely to be slightly less if you own gold.

FORMER GOOGLE ENGINEER ANTHONY LEVANDOWSKI STARTS COMPANY TO CREATE A ROBOT ‘GODHEAD’ BASED ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE


WEBPAGE ADMINISTRATOR:
   We are nearing the end of this system, the scriptures listed below are depicting the Great Tribulation period, which is at least 3.5 years in the future. We all need to wake up and realize the time which we are in, i.e. The time of the end of this System. Jesus Christ is our only answer.

Rev. 13:14 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.

Rev. 13:15 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.

Rev. 13:16 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:

Rev. 13:17 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.

Rev. 13:18 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

By Geoffrey Grinder – http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/former-google-engineer-anthony-levandowski-starts-company-to-create-a-robot-godhead-based-on-artificial-intelligence/

Anthony Levandowski seems to have taken that story very closely to heart. His newly founded Way of the Future organization, whose filings were first uncovered by Wired, exists to “develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead contribute to the betterment of society.” Yes, you read that right. To quote Wired’s Mark Harris, “God is a bot, and Anthony Levandowski is his messenger.” At least, that is the plan.

Former Google engineer Anthony Levandowski is emerging from the shadow of a self-driving lawsuit to create a robot god using artificial intelligence.

“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.” Revelation 13:15 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: In case you haven’t notice, our present-day world is controlled by technology companies who create technology that runs the world. The main players in this global system who do not believe in the God of the Bible do want to have a god, but they want it to be a god of their own creation. Artificial Intelligence implemented through Transhumanism is the means by which this will be accomplished. They are summoning the demon, and the demon will be more than happy to accomodate their request. 

The present continues to take inspiration from science-fiction author Isaac Asimov’s visions of the future. In “The Last Question,” Asimov conceived of an artificial intelligence project known as Multivac. Its purpose was to solve for the inevitable heat death of the universe, but in the end, it becomes that answer.

Levandowski seems to have taken that story very closely to heart. His newly founded Way of the Future organization, whose filings were first uncovered by Wired, exists to “develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead contribute to the betterment of society.”

Yes, you read that right. To quote Wired’s Mark Harris, “God is a bot, and Anthony Levandowski is his messenger.” At least, that is the plan.

But Levandowski, like so many prophets, did not begin his life as an aspiring holy man. He was once the co-founder of self-driving trucking company “Otto,” purchased by Uber and now at the center of a lawsuit from Google parent company Alphabet for Levandowski’s alleged theft of their technology from competitor Waymo. Currently, Levandowski may even be looking toward incarceration, if Google’s gestating criminal case makes further headway.

That does not, however, seem to be slowing Anthony Levandowski down. His vision for a religion centered on an AI godhead has been quietly developing since that initial 2015 filing.

Author and futurist Yuval Noah Harari, via the New Statesman, expressed his firm belief in the inevitability of religion’s own evolution. He believes ideas like this are a logical product of the times in which we live. As he explained:

That is why agricultural deities were different from hunter-gatherer spirits, why factory hands and peasants fantasized about different paradises, and why the revolutionary technologies of the 21st century are far more likely to spawn unprecedented religious movements than to revive medieval creeds.

Founding Chair of the Christian Transhumanist Association Christopher Benek admitted that “the church does a terrible job of reaching out to Silicon Valley types.” In an age ruled by the meteoric rise of technology — deity or not — that is a truly massive oversight. But Benek will not accept that artificial intelligence must be an alternative to Christ. Rather, that as another gift of what he believes is humanity’s God-given intellect, “AI can participate in Christ’s redemptive purposes.”

Extreme futurists like Ray Kurzweil have replaced religion with faith of their own in the form of a technological Singularity. Elon Musk and his peers, however, are much less confident in humanity’s ability to survive its own future creations. He has called AI “potentially more dangerous than nukes,” and compared the rise of super AI to “summoning the demon.” At a 2014 conference, he warned, “…in all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it’s like – yeah, he’s sure he can control the demon. Doesn’t work out.”

Former Transhumanist presidential candidate Zoltan Istvan believes God and AI may not be separate in the first place. He sees that potential god as “the most powerful of all singularities,” a being that “has certainly already become pure organized intelligence” and “spans the universe through subatomic manipulation of physics.”

It’s difficult to see how artificial intelligence might transform our beliefs, whether in a higher power or one that can be plugged in. If our future is more Multivac than Siri, the secretive members of Levandowski’s proto-religion have yet to enlighten us. For now, as with any other, such ideas will require faith. source

A TALE OF TWO ETERNITIES – YOURS

http://www.theignorantfishermen.com/

In ETERNITY, the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God is without compromise and saturates its ETERNAL state. When a man or women dies in an unregenerate state they do not stop from transgressing against the RIGHTEOUS laws and absolutes of Almighty God. These FOREVER remain imprisoned in an unregenerate, fallen and lawless estate and must be put in a place which consumes their godless and lawless thoughts (Luke  16:19-22, Rom. 7:14-24). They will FOREVER transgress continually because of tbeir unregenerate estate the ETERNAL absolutes and laws of RIGHTEOUZNESS FOREVER (Rom. 7:7-24, 25, Rev. 22:8). The purifying holiness of Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS fire FOREVER consumes the lawless imaginations and thoughts that arise against Almighty God’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS and thus the flame always burns and the worm NEVER dies (Matt. 25:41, Mark 9:43-44, Rev. 20:11, 21:8, 22:11). WOE! WOE! WOE! To all who reject Almighty Gos ETERNAL LOVE and saving grace (John 3:16-17; 36)!

The purifying holiness of Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS fire FOREVER consumes the lawless imaginations and thoughts that arise against Almighty God’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS and thus the flame always burns and the worm never dies. WOE! WOE! WOE!

For the redeemed this ETERNAL destiny will NEVER be, for they – by placing their trust in Almighty God’s ETERNAL Son – have been delivered from their fallen nature and have been given the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ which is for ALL ETERNITY (Rom. 7:24-25; 10:2-4, 1 Cor. 1:30, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 John 3:1-3, Rev. 1:5, 22:11). In the death of the redeemed there is great joy for we know that our loved one is in the presence of Almighty God and safe in His ETERNAL loving arms (2 Cor. 5:8). The one who dies in Christ will be finally liberated from the bondage of this fallen world, Satan’s oppression and their fallen nature (Gal. 1:4, Rom. 7:24-25, 8:18-23). In the death of the saints is indeed ETERNAL liberation and the joy of ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS (2 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21-22:1-5). We will at last see our Savior and Heavenly Father face to face and be able to enjoy them in the beauty of RIGHTEOUSNESS (John 17:24, Rev. 22:1-5).

The one who dies in Christ will be finally liberated from the bondage of this fallen world, Satan’s oppression and their fallen nature.

My dear friends, it is Almighty God’s great desire for ALL to turn to Him and be delivered from the wrath which is to come against all lawlessness and ungodliness (John 3:16-17). To rebel against Almighty God’s command to repent and be saved and to reject His ETERNAL GRACE, MERCY and LOVE is to seek to bring this world’s unrighteous rebellion into ETERNITY and this world’s lawless consequence with it (Isa. 5:20, 32:17, 57:21, Rom. 1:18-32, Gal.6:7, Rev. 21:8). O dear friends, that can NEVER be nor will it EVER be! There is no ETERNAL peace in lawlessness only the fruits of oppression and violence (Isa. 57:20-21, Luke 16:19-22, Rev. 20:11-15). My dear friends, Almighty God cries out to you today to repent and be saved (Ezek. 18:32, John 3:17, 1 Tim. 2:4)! Will you hear His voice? The days are getting short and ETERNITY is EVER before us. Please be sure to contact us if you have any questions on how you can know where you will spend your ETERNITY. ONLY in Jesus Christ is found Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS provision for ETERNITY The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand! DJP. I.F.
