2 plus 2, very often does not equal 4 anymore.
Good can be bad.
Wonderful can be devastating.
Exciting can be deadly.
Revelation 13:16 -17 He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.
We are often fascinated by the “awesome” technologies we witness.
Chip implantation: wonderful ID system and endless information in a person’s body.
GPS: Wonderful navigation, location, and search system.
Drones: Wonderful remote visual system with virtually unlimited capabilities.
Plastic money: Permits fast, often instant, and widespread commerce transactions.
Social Media; Massive networks for personal image and thought distribution.
Mobile communications: The cell phone is a solve-all for everything from personal communication, event recording, and emergency aid. 5G is here. It will speed existing communications as much as one hundred times.
High definition video cameras and editors: Visual and audio recording for information gathering, editing and distribution.
The Internet: The “worldwide web”: Fast information transfer, tremendous informational interaction and ultra-convenient commerce.
PC’s: Offer unlimited possibilities for audio and visual manipulation, storage and transmission.
ARTIFICAL VISION SYSTEMS: Machine vision systems that match a person’s characteristics with stored images for unlocking entrances, purchasing, many licenses, voter registration, and resume information.
One World Government: Fascinating possibilities for elimination of national and ethnic bias, easing of religious strife, distribution of wealth, and universally fair marketing transfers without tariffs and barriers.
Imagine all these technologies along with the rapidly emerging technologies, evolving social views being controlled by a very, very small group of ruthless evil people in the world. If those people are ruthless and against everything righteous, then they would be armed, with all the technologies, and very dangerous to all who oppose them.
