AI and Lucifer’s Attempt at God-Likeness

Lucifer was, it is likely, the Apex Angel of God’s angelic Creation. His beauty, according to his own words, seemed to be something that morphed into pride wrapped within the iniquity that was found in him.

This magnificent creature convinced himself, like in the lie with which he deceived Eve, that he could become as God.

Lucifer, now known as the serpent, the devil, and Satan, has, since embracing iniquity, tried to achieve those words he spoke while looking into that iniquitous mirror.

“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:13-14).

Lucifer the fallen now tries in every way to usurp God’s Throne. His desire to be God has apparently only grown, not diminished, over the eons. He tries to exert power and authority over God’s Creation –especially God’s creation called man. For most of humanity, his wicked machinations have worked.

He is now in the process of convincing mankind that God’s Order is to be thrown out and replaced with man’s own governance, which is in reality Lucifer the fallen one’s governance.

There aren’t two genders, but many. Men can come together with other men in sexual activity, and women with women. Mankind should, through climate change fanaticism, worship Mother Earth –i.e., should worship the creation rather than the Creator. It is okay for mankind, even parents, to change the sex of their children through mutilation and drug therapies. And many, even within the nation’s judicial systems, view pedophiles now as only Minor Attracted Persons who shouldn’t be punished for their pedophilia.

Lucifer’s drive to be God-like can never accomplish his goal. Still, he rages forward in the attempt.

His reprobate insanity will eventuate in his ultimate imitation of Heaven’s Trinity when the unholy trinity comes together during the Tribulation. Satan, Antichrist, and the false prophet will mimic the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit at that time.

Yet Lucifer the fallen comes far short of the God-like Power he covets. That is, he is neither Omniscient, Omnipotent, nor Omnipresent.

A close, long-time friend this past week sent me an article that sparked a profound realization. I attempt here to relate this epiphany my friend stimulated upon our back and forth in email.

This thing that has suddenly appeared and is growing in geometric progression termed AI (Artificial Intelligence) seems destined to, at some future point, give the unholy trinity their own evil imitation of God’s Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence.

The article my friend sent gives a hint of the potential for developing AI into technology that will likely make the unholy trinity when they appear seem to be all-knowing, all-powerful, and always present everywhere at the same time.

My friend’s email comment to me: Here is a tweet written by a current Google customer, commenting at length on the nature of the Gemini (Google AI) tool.

I think AI will lend the Antichrist the semblance of omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence as well. AI has an uncanny ability to predict future behavior based on past behavior. While the Antichrist may not be able to see everything, he can likely make educated guesses where to look and what and who to control based on the odds.

In this way, AI acts as a force multiplier and a force extender. It not only amplifies the collection and analysis of data but enables efficient application of deterrence and control.

Article Excerpt:

“I’m done with @Google. I know many good individuals working there, but as a company, they’ve irrevocably lost my trust. I’m “moving out.” Here’s why:

“I’ve been reading Google’s Gemini damage control posts. I think they’re simply not telling the truth. For one, their text-only product has the same (if not worse) issues. And second, if you know a bit about how these models are built, you know you don’t get these “incorrect” answers through one-off innocent mistakes. Gemini’s outputs reflect the many, many, FTE-years of labeling efforts, training, fine-tuning, prompt design, QA/verification — all iteratively guided by the team who built it.

You can also be certain that before releasing it, many people have tried the product internally, that many demos were given to senior PMs and VPs, that they all thought it was fine, and that they all ultimately signed off on the release. With that prior, the balance of probabilities is strongly against the outputs being an innocent bug — as @googlepubpolicy is now trying to spin it: Gemini is a product that functions exactly as designed, and an accurate reflection of the values people who built it.

“Those values appear to include a desire to reshape the world in a specific way that is so strong that it allowed the people involved to rationalize to themselves that it’s not just acceptable but desirable to train their AI to prioritize ideology ahead of giving users the facts. To revise history, to obfuscate the present, and to outright hide information that doesn’t align with the company’s (staff’s) impression of what is “good.”

I don’t care if some of that ideology may or may not align with your or my thinking about what would make the world a better place: for anyone with a shred of awareness of human history, it should be clear how unbelievably irresponsible it is to build a system that aims to become an authoritative compendium of human knowledge (remember Google’s mission statement?), but which actually prioritizes ideology over facts. History is littered with many who have tried this sort of moral flexibility “for the greater good.” Rather than helping, they typically resulted in decades of setbacks (and tens of millions of victims).

With some of the scientists who have brought AI into existence saying it is so dangerous as to its possibly bringing mankind to termination, it is not hard to imagine what the other AI will do with the technology. That other AI, Antichrist’s Intelligence, powered by his father of lies, Lucifer, will doubtless indeed seem to exert God-like powers of omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence over the victims left behind when the Lord Jesus Christ Rescues all believers in the Rapture just before the unholy trinity takes power during the Tribulation.

You don’t want to be left behind when that evil, phony trinity takes over. Here is how to go to Jesus when He Calls believers to Himself.

“That if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and will believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10).



The Prophetic Significance of Underground Bunkers

A few years ago, I read a mystery novel about people building elaborate and expensive underground bunkers in former missile silos to protect themselves from nuclear war and other forms of devastation. His story caused me to wonder if he had observed this before creating a fictional account about it.

In 2024, fiction has become reality. For months, social media has been abuzz with reports of Mark Zuckerberg, billionaire founder of Facebook, building a massive underground shelter in Hawaii. A Time online story recently picked up the story:

 Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, co-founder and co-CEO of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, plan to build a 5,000-square-foot underground shelter on their Hawaii ranch with its own energy and food supplies, according to a Wired investigation published earlier this month.

The plan is that the shelter’s door will be made of metal and filled in with concrete—common in bunkers and bomb shelters, the news outlet reported in its extensive article citing planning documents and interviews.

Other accounts suggest that he is just one of many billionaires building underground bunkers for protection against doomsday scenarios. We know that governments have protective bunkers for their elite, but now such things have become commonplace among the rich and famous.

The Building of Bunkers Fulfills Biblical Prophecy

Did you know that the Bible long ago prophesied that this would happen in the last days? Who would have thought that Mr. Zuckerberg’s behavior fulfills biblical prophecy? But it does.

The Lord told the prophet Isaiah that during the last days, people would hide in holes in the ground to escape the terrors of the Day of the Lord:

“And the haughtiness of man shall be humbled,
and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low,
and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
And the idols shall utterly pass away.
And people shall enter the caves of the rocks
and the holes of the ground,
from before the terror of the Lord,
and from the splendor of his majesty,
when he rises to terrify the earth”
(Isaiah 2:17-19, my emphasis)

Skipping forward to Revelation 6:15-17, we read that John witnessed and recorded the future fulfillment of these words from Isaiah 2:

“Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?’”

In the future, it won’t be just the rich and powerful seeking refuge amid the terrors of the Day of the Lord wrath, but a wide variety of people during the Tribulation period will seek to hide from His judgments.

What Does This Tell Us About the Time in Which We Live?

The vast majority, if not all, of those seeking underground protection from doomsday scenarios don’t believe the Bible. Most regard our warnings of God’s future judgment on the earth as foolishness.

Does it not seem strangely ironic that their behavior points to the soon fulfillment of Revelation chapter 6, which they consider to be foolishness?

They recognize that devastating wars, economic turmoil, and deadly natural disasters lie on the horizon, but they remain blind to how these things point to the Lord’s soon intervention in the world. However, by the time the sixth seal comes upon them, they will recognize the terrors overspreading the planet as resulting “from the wrath of the Lamb” (Revelation 6:17).

If the elite recognize the nearness of the Day of the Lord perils such as we see in Revelation 6 (despite not identifying them as such), does this not tell us that such things are near? These billionaires look at what lies ahead with unbelieving eyes and ignorance of Bible prophecy; yet, by their behavior tell us that we live in the last days when these things are about to take place.

Should this not be a wake-up call to pastors who claim to know and believe what God’s Word says but persist in pushing the Lord’s intervention in our world to a far distant end of the age event?

I also find it curious that Mark Zuckerberg and his fellow billionaires are acting in ways that seem likely to frighten others as they seek to escape rather than use their money to divert the catastrophes they see coming. When we tell people about what the Bible says is coming to our world, they say we are trying to scare people. Even fellow believers accuse us of being escapists who don’t care about people or life today.

Don’t believe the mockers of our day. It’s Bible prophecy that provides the most genuine comfort amid the perils of our day. Furthermore, I have observed that the ones looking for Jesus’ imminent appearing are among those most likely to give sacrificially to alleviate the suffering of our world.

I’m not saying we should not take precautions in a world fraught with danger and perhaps maintain a backup supply of food and water. However, our hope for the future rests in Jesus alone.

We don’t know when He will appear to take us to Heaven or the timing of the destruction that’s coming upon the world, but based upon what the Bible tells us, we know these things:

  1. We surely live in the season of the Rapture.
  2. Jesus will soon appear; He will surely intervene in our world.
  3. The destruction anticipated by the elite will happen after we are safely in glory with Jesus.
  4. The underground bunkers will not save them from the wrath that’s coming upon planet Earth.
