The Image of the Beast
Revelation 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. (15) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beastshould both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beastshould be killed.
If you are a first time reader, I suggest that you read Singularity and The Image of the Beastabout man merging with machines and Genetic Armageddon about man’s DNA being altered. Together they show scientists are on the verge of creating a transhuman: a beast that is part human and part something else. Creating a transhuman is right on top of us!
I believe that tampering with the integrity of man is a KEY sign of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. God will put a stop to this at His return. It appears from Revelation 13:15 that man will succeed in creating a transhuman, which the Bible calls “The Image of the Beast.” What I am posting is NOT science fiction.
From charting the advancement toward a transhuman being, it is possible to get an idea how close man is to God’s judgment. God must stop the creation of transhumans because these creatures are not created in His image and likeness; therefore, they cannot be redeemed through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
What I do in this blog is keep the reader on the cutting edge of technology advancements that are directly leading to the Image of the Beast. These advancements are reported under headings that include: Computer Brain, Digitized Mind, Robotic Body, Cyborg, Genetic Armageddon, Chimera, and Advanced Technology.
This blog is the complement to the “666 Surveillance System” which focuses on technological innovations leading to the rise of a government so repressive and controlling that it’s called a “Beast” state.
Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen.Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
We’re facing genetic Armageddon as scientists continue their progression towards the destruction of man created in God’s image. With the advent of DNA CRISPR technology, anything imaginable is available. One of the companies profiled in a video on Singularity University is creating synthetic printable DNA, and the head of that company states that soon anyone will be able to make creatures from his imagination. This is not what God intended; the limits He placed and the boundaries between species were created for good reason.
Once before mankind went down this road and that was in the days of Noah. Jesus stated that at his return the world would be the same as in those days.
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
Surely this is what He was referring to. But genetic manipulation is only a small part of what is becoming a nightmarish and sordid future. While the media touts the great advancements we’re making, ethical rules are becoming unmentionable. Those crying out for controls are being ignored. They speak of a future where soon children will be playing with creation through DNA the same way that prior generations played with chemistry sets, and foresee not only the ruin of the planet but the end of mankind itself. While they may not realize it, they are prophetic because again, Jesus said,
Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Yet that’s exactly what is being pursued through Singularity University and the high tech companies with whom they partner. At the risk of being repetitive, the old lie that we can be as gods, and the potential for astronomical profits is too much to overcome in a society that has lost its moral compass. The French ad, below, shows us the media-enhanced side of all this and how wonderful it all will be. The video farther below by Nicholson1968 shows how it all is actually leading to the Image of the Beast and how we’re being programmed to accept it. Watch both and contrast them, then be aware of what they’re trying to get you to accept. It isn’t the rosy future they’d want you to believe. But notice how they always are promoting the benefits and pushing the positive, like we’ve begun with the first article in this post.
Without guidelines and ethical boundaries we’ll soon be lost but they aren’t going to come. Nothing will stop the mad scientists and the elites backing them in their pursuit of a man-made “paradise.” In today’s climate, even if rules were passed limiting the uses and boundaries of technology, how would they be enforced? That may be one justification of a global government but it won’t be the real reason. That reason is to pursue all of this more powerfully and quickly, to move us toward a man-made “utopia” without God, with a counterfeit savior and an Image that will dazzle the population into acceptance and worship of him. But it won’t be utopia; it will be hell on earth.
Is this really the future we want? Is this in God’s plan at all? Absolutely not, but we’re heading there at lightning speed, whether we want to go there or not. The elites controlling not only science, but all of society are convinced, and they’ve sought a world without God for a very long time. They want no gods other than themselves – at least, they don’t want the God of the Bible. Instead they’ve given their allegiance to a different god, and they’re dragging the world along with them through deception, programming and arrogance; they are bent on the destruction of man created in God’s image. It’s time to repent and turn to Jesus Christ for the only true way out.
“Scientists are studying the genetic make-up of domestic cats as they believe it could hold clues in helping understand diseases susceptible to humans such as diabetes and asthma. Previous studies looking at the genetics of household pets have almost exclusively concentrated on dogs with the first full canine genome being worked out in 2005.
But now researchers have turned their attentions to cats after it was revealed their DNA may contain crucial information about diseases which are suffered by both the animals and humans. The University of Missouri has now launched 99 Lives, a project where anyone with a cat can provide blood or tissues, which will allow researchers to study the DNA of the pets and trace their origin. They hope a full mapping of 20,000 genes in different breeds could help pinpoint the genetic cause of distinguishing marks, like fur and eye colours and also health problems.”
“In the future, DNA hackers won’t sneak viruses into your laptop and crash websites. Instead, they’ll sneak viruses into your body and crash you, and maybe billions of other people, too. They’ll do this by designing DNA sequences that code for new, never-before-seen, living viruses that spread from person to person as easily as measles, and that kill (or sicken) as inevitability as rabies.
Truly monstrous hackers will ensure your doctor cannot help you fight the virus, by engineering it so that off-the-self medicines and vaccines are ineffective. Medical science, caught flat-footed, will have only weeks to develop, test, produce, and distribute new vaccines and medicines before the exponential spread of the virus collapses social order world-wide. (Witness last year’s penetrating anxieties when just two people caught Ebola inside the U.S.)
With today’s science, engineering an Armageddon virus may still be impossible. But the progress of DNA technology in the 40 years since its invention has been spectacular and is accelerating. Remember the national-scale effort needed to sequence one human genome 15 years ago? Within a year it will cost you $500. By mail order. So, certainly, 40 years in the future, things that are now very hard or impossible will be easy.
And hackers are going to love DNA. Fundamentally, DNA is just a programming language for living tissues. DNA hackers will write programs for living cells to run, just like computer hackers write programs for computers to run. Today’s most leading-edge scientists have only started doing this, and there is no telling where it will go.”
“Christopher Voigt dreams of programming living cells the same way engineers program robots. Over the last few years, the MIT bioengineer and a small army of researchers have created a programming language for life, allowing scientists to coerce cells to do all sorts of things nature never intended them to do. So far, they’ve gotten yeast to produce painkillers and bacteria to make biofuels. But their ambitions are much grander than that. They want to be able to program our bodies to delete diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.
Part of that quest involves gene-editing, a process in which scientists replace parts of an organism’s natural DNA with synthetic bits that change what the cells do. The most promising gene-editing technique in use now is called CRISPR, short for clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats. Multiple labs around the world are testing out the technology in various organisms. Most recently, a group in China used it to reprogram human embryos and remove genes that would cause a blood disease. But the cool thing about CRISPR is that even though it’s a tool for synthetic biology, it’s actually a completely natural process bacteria use as a defense mechanism against viruses.”
Genome Editing with CRISPR-Cas9 We’ve discussed CRISPR technology in earlier posts. This video goes into in it in more depth, but still in layman’s terms. Naturally, because it was produced by the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT, it touts the wonders of CRISPR and how useful it will be. The description with the video states:
“This animation depicts the CRISPR-Cas9 method for genome editing – a powerful new technology with many applications in biomedical research, including the potential to treat human genetic disease. Feng Zhang, a leader in the development of this technology, is a faculty member at MIT, an investigator at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research, and a core member of the Broad Institute. Further information can be found on Prof. Zhang’s website at http://zlab.mit.edu .”
Satan:”The Shape I’m In” Setting Himself Up to Be God This video by Nicholson1968 covers the programming occurring in media which is getting us prepared for the world of “programmable matter”, 3rd strand DNA, and all of the other technological innovations which ultimately will yield the Image of the Beast. They’re just about ready to forge ahead, and as in every area related both to the image and the 666 Beast system, they slowly make it seem normal and acceptable.
“A developing effort in the United States to turn the organs of aborted babies into a commodity is a technology bereft of morals, contend a number of pro-life leaders. “This kind of Frankenscience could lead to more abortion because of the obvious profit motive,” said Leslie Hanks of Colorado Right to Life. She warned it could be the first step to owning and patenting certain human DNA patterns or even actual human beings. “Truly the stuff of science fiction, an abomination to Almighty God and sadly a further commodification of human beings,” she told WND.
WND reported this week on what the Genetic Literacy Project website calls xenotransplantation. The process, being developed by the California company Ganogen, removes the organs from aborted babies, transplants them into a rat or pig and then allows them to grow so they can be transplanted into a human. Work initially has been done on kidneys. The Genetic Literacy Project suggested the biggest question would be, “Would you accept an organ from a pig, cow, baboon or a chimpanzee to save your child’s life, or your own?”
Eric Scheidler is executive director of the Pro-Life Action League….“It’s telling that Ganogen refers euphemistically to ‘discarded human organs’ – they know (that) admitting these organs are harvested from aborted babies will make people recoil. Is it worth it to extend your life with an aborted baby’s heart or kidneys?” He continued: “But as macabre as this technology is, it does give the lie to the abortion industry’s claim that unborn children are not living human beings. Their humanity is precisely what makes these transplants possible. “It’s horrifying to think that a company would exploit the deaths of these children in this way, or that sick people would be willing to purchase more years of life at such a moral cost.”
Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue [stated]…“They kill [a baby] in order to grow and harvest organs, and then make a profit….” He suggested that in such research, there no longer really are any ethics. “The only thing unethical is to fail to make a profit. It’s anything-goes, full-speed, lead-foot-on-the-gas pedal.”
Singularity University: On the Brink of Accelerating Human Progress The YouTube label of this video by Bloomberg Business, below, actually is “DNA Consumer Products: Not as Far Out as You Think” which is fairly descriptive. It covers a company which is laser-printing DNA, among other things. The head of that particular company boasts, “Anyone in the world will be able to be a genetic designer…Synthetic DNA will become a consumer product…We’re gonna see people programming life forms at scale, and doing it very quickly.” Singularity University is a creation of Google futurist, Ray Kurzweil.

Revelation 14:9-11 … If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
