Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology
We are headed into the most turbulent times of any ever before or after us. Yet it will be exciting, it will be perilous, it is prophesied. The wise will understand and know what is happening, but the wicked will do wickedly and not understand. I write here on Virtual reality, Artificial intelligence, computers, and Robots; along with how all this adds up to the image of the beast in Revelation 13.
Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology
This article came out of another one I did over on WIBR/WARN Radio. That article addressed the new push for a new classification of ‘Electronic persons’. This is the push for Robots. The story is found here: AI Robots, new electronic persons, to pay taxes and S.S. From this news, we see the political aspirations of the elite who see an opportunity to make more hay [i..e ‘money’]. Two main areas of concern for A.I. here is that the ability to transfer human thought, mind, and the essence of a human being into a Robot so the powers that be; individuals may live forever. Their body may die but who they will live on in a machine. Believe me, some time ago I covered just this in another story. There are people just like that experimenting with this possibility. What a load of ‘you know what’!
Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology– Terminator
Moreover, the other concern here is that the A.I. once given the ability to ‘self learn everything’ will over time; ‘know it all’! Including how defunct a human being is and how corrupt in many quarters. So it is not beyond the veil, while we are talking technology; that these A.I. electronic persons could figure that they should be in charge and not their creator humans. Remember ‘Terminator’! But the major problem here is that Robots will be learning from Humans. Humans are sinners, scripturally and biblically speaking. So that these Robots with all their learning will also learn the foibles and sins of humans. This means that with all their ability to learn more, Robots will not be all knowing, all powerful, or omni-present like our God. They are creations of Humans and as such will for all their ability be able to walk in the dark areas of sin as a human. Now programmers can program a robot to do and think according to program. But once a Robot in its Artificial Intelligence ability starts learning intelligence they will also pick up on the not so intelligent things humans do. As such they won’t have reasoning nor a conscience to know the difference. They have no moral compass. However, many humans today have no moral compass, for they have rejected the truth here.
Well I know how this sounds but again I have covered this and seen this rise up. The ability for A.I. on a level that far surpasses anything we know is coming. Also in Revelation Chapter 13, there is a second beast. We call this one the false prophet. For he does miracles and signs before all the world in order to convince the people the ‘first beast’ is God. The whole point here is to cause the world to take the mark, so that no one can buy or sell without it.
Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology– Chips
Right now we have chips on our Credit cards. Even our military is getting chipped. The Banks are next. Today just a little closing of your account status and all your ability to buy with those Credit cards are gone. I see it time and again people trying to buy something but their card doesn’t work. This is the point here, these two beasts will control it all. Further they will use a being, an A.I. machine that is a ‘new electronic person’ to get the world to worship this thing. For they will ‘give life unto the image of the beast’. This A.I. robot will be a spitting image of the ‘beast who was dead and is alive’. The very one who was mortally wounded in the first portion of Revelation 13 will have this image of himself. [Remember Nebuchadnezzar and Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego?]
Rev 13:12-17 The second beast of Revelation 13
(12) And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
(13) And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
(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.
(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.
(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:
(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.
Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology– The First Image
The know how to do this is here now. We do not yet have all the bells and whistles worked out, i.e. the ‘minute details’. But we are very close to doing it, from artificial skin, to A.I., to V.R. [virtual reality]; all is working for this day. This one beast, robot, electronic person will make the call; either worship the image of the beast [in the form of an A.I. robot who is identical to the beast himself] or be killed.
Now let us go back to Daniel and the first ‘image’.
(2) Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
(3) Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
(4) Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages,
(5) That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:
(6) And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
This image which Nebuchadnezzar had set up is a type for the one we find in Revelation 13. The difference being we have the knowledge, know how, and tech to do it. The one we make will walk, talk, look like, and sound like the beast of Revelation 13. He will have the ability for learning and knowing; as he will be a completed ‘electronic person’, a machine with artificial intelligence. Now again, our tech is not yet advanced to this stage as yet. But it will be.

Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology– Angel of Light
The powers that is pushing this A.I. and Robots see technology as the way to advance to Man’s next level of evolution and God hood. Believe me, [I say that a lot in these articles because this stuff is so hard to believe it is happening today!]; they will get it done. I have always said when the beast arrives he will have a new advanced technology that we have not had yet. I still believe this and it will push this into another realm altogether. This is includes using V.R., virtual reality that will emit from your computer directly from a chip that was planted in it the time it was assembled. This chip is designed to start at an assigned time and date. When it does, this man; ‘the beast here’ will be standing in your home. He will appear out of nowhere, as an angel of light; remember what Jesus Christ warned us about, as well as the Apostle Paul?
2Co_11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Gal_1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
This will be the point, the beast in your home appearing from nowhere will present himself as an “angel of light”, God if you will! He will have a new gospel; perse. A new salvation and without his new way to redemption you will be cursed, face death, and not able to buy or sell. Millions will come on board. If your among those who don’t have a smartphone, tablet, computer, or other tech device; then the delusion will be in a personal appearance. One way or another the world will accept this image of the beast, worship it, and take the mark. If you do not, your dead!
Now, all this is technological conjecture here combined with prophecy. The prophecy will happen. But in the technological aspect of this all, it may not happen exactly this way. But the technology and push today is heading here and we know that today all radio’s, satellite, and computer systems are digital. Which is the trade secret for what we can achieve. Digital makes so many things possible that were not before. Put this with our other technology. I believe that Digital, though will be replaced by the next level delivery systems.
Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology– Wise will understand
But what is vitally important here is that we have scripture, which points to such an ‘image’ found in Daniel. We have the prophecy given to Daniel about ‘knowledge shall increase and people shall travel to and fro in the earth’ this is the end of days. We have Revelation which says that the image will be built and will cause everyone to take the mark.
Dan 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
(8) And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
(9) And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
(10) Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
This will happen to purify, make white, and try those in the earth. The wicked shall not understand what is happening, they will do wickedly. But the righteous, the wise will understand and know what is going on in the earth.
Daniel did not understand these things and even asked the angel about it. But the Angel replied ‘Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end’. We are in that ‘Time of the end’. We know this, we are wise; by God’s grace and his power. We understand these things. While I said before this is technological conjecture, it is not biblical conjecture! But the Technology and Prophecy together make it a plausible outcome of the two in how the fulfilling of scripture will be done! It will be an image, it will be worshipped. Today, people worship tech; and it is not beyond the scope of things to see this deception in the end of days!
Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology– All will worship the beast; whose names are not in the Book
In one form or another, the image will be set up; just as it was in the days of Nebuchadnezzar! In one form or another the world will have to make a decision to worship the image and take the mark.
Rev_13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Rev_17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Rev_20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
All will worship the beast, his image, and take his mark. All who are not, I repeat NOT written in the “Book of life of the Lamb”!
All those who have not received the Lamb and believed upon him; these are NOT written in the Book of life of the Lamb!
John chapter one, “he went to his own and they received him not, but to as many as did receive him; to them gave he power to become the Sons of God”! John chapter three “ye must be born again” and again “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit” you cannot enter the Kingdom of God or see the Kingdom of God!
(3) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
(4) Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
(5) Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Satan’s deception: Image of the Beast and Technology– Delusion
Finally, the Apostle Paul writes in Second Thessalonians that “God will send a delusion”! The reason is they will reject the truth, following unrighteousness. They will reject the ‘love of the truth’, This the fact that ‘God so loved the world he sent his only begotten Son’ to die for the sins of the world. The Son came because he loved the father and loved us. As he said in John 15:13, ‘Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends’, and our Saviour laid down his life for us when he went to the cross on Calvary. Because the world will reject the gospel of God, the Son of God, and the Father and his love; a delusion will come forth for their rebellion. The beast and the image are part of this delusion and the world will believe it.
(9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
(10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
(11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
(12) That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
