People do wonder and they have also arrived at the conclusion that computers are actually in the bible, the most obvious example of this is what’s called “The Image of the Beast.” This reference to “beast” in the bible when it talks of the image of the beast is referencing the Antichrist and the image of the beast references what you might call the statue that is made in his image. Lots of famous people in the world have statues made in their image such as great religious leaders and political leaders and various religions have also had statues made in the image of their gods. Famously, devil worshipers approach their god through statues, the statue is a representative of their particular god and so in this same sense devil worshippers, a worshipper of Baal let’s say, would approach his statue and therefore would approach his god spiritually because in this same sense the demon or devil would operate through that statue on a spiritual level and so that statue would kind of have a soul although it doesn’t move physically it can still speak to the communicator spiritually and this believe it or not is how it works and it is an absolute fact that devil worshippers do communicate with their god on a spiritual level through a statue or through various symbols all of course symbolising the same thing, a devil or a demon.
The image of the beast, or in other words the statue of the beast let’s say, will be different than all the statues that have ever been made of all the other gods that have gone before, it will be the same in one way in that these statues have always been made by human hands but completely different in that this statue of the beast will be able to actually speak and decide who lives and who dies. We also read in the book of Revelation that they, the people who made this statue, had power to give life unto the image of the beast and that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed so this statue has in a sense been given the gift of life and it has also been given the gift of godhood and so it becomes a kind of a godhead and so most people arrive at the conclusion that this image of the beast must be some kind of man-made computer that is so advanced and so intelligent that they would even intrust it with decisions concerning life and death.
The other reference to computers in the bible is in Daniel chapter 11 and if we go to verses 36 & 37 then we also read of the Antichrist and he’s talked about here as being a king and we read that it says,
“And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods…Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers…nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.”
So here we have this antichrist man who wishes to exalt himself above every other god that has ever gone before him, any god including the One True God, this man will think that he is above all of these, every single one of them and no-doubt there have been thousands and thousands of gods. So you might ask: how on earth is he going to exalt himself above every other god and then have the audacity to turn around and expect us to fall down and worship him? Well, in the following verses you could say that it tells you how he’s going to do this, and again, we are talking here about the image of the beast. And it says,
“But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.” (Daniel 11:38)
The word “estate” here you could say means kingdom and you could also say as it says in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 that this antichrist man will sit in the temple of God in Jerusalem exalting himself above all that is called god or that is worshipped so he rules the world from his estate there in Jerusalem, that estate being the temple in Jerusalem which he sits in as god and so in his estate he honours the god of forces. This god of forces that he honours is science, scientists you could say are becoming too clever for their own good and they are getting more and more into forbidden knowledge and they are going more and more microscopic than ever before and by going down into the microscopic levels of the very forces of the universe let’s say, they are finding that it’s a very very strange world indeed down there at the microscopic level of the microscopic level. Scientists as we all know are always trying to work out what makes things tick and so they go more and more into the very forces of nature and they do their experiments at that level and why are thy experimenting? The answer to that is that they wish to exploit the very forces of nature and in this same sense they are harnessing the forces of nature. To simply explain the word harness you might consider science down there at the microscopic level as being like a kind of a wild horse and you wish to put a harness on that horse and make it work for you, make it submit to your will, and so they are harnessing the forces of nature and the weird science down there and making it do things under the will of man himself so instead of the forces of nature being under the will of God, they are more and more bringing these forces under the will of man and finally they will bring the very forces of nature itself under the will of one man, that one man will be the Antichrist and of late we read and hear that the new computers that they are going to create will operate with the very forces of nature at their core and so all the weird science down there they will learn to harness and use these forces to run these new super computers which they call quantum computers and this is what will give the image of the beast it’s mastery in that it will be so clever and so advanced that it will make the best computer that mankind now has look like a pocket calculator.
What’s interesting here also is that the circuit board in computers is made with gold and silver and you do wonder about the precious stones and pleasant things in that you picture this image of the beast being so incredibly dazzling to the eyes and the most incredible creation that mankind has ever created in that it was created by his own hands and so you picture here that mankind has created his own god and so mankind will bow down and worship the works of his own hands and it will be the worship of science! And the next verse goes on to say:
“Thus shall he do in the most strongholds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (Daniel 11:39)
So here we have this strange science computerised god being called a strange god and this Antichrist man acknowledges this scientific god and increases its glory and then we read strangely enough that the whole thing turns plural in that it says, “…and he (the Antichrist) shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” So what do we see that is ruling over many these days? The simple answer to that is computers, you step into any bank today or any supermarket and more and more we are seeing less staff and low and behold the computers are actually running things! And so he is increasing them, the computers, with glory and they are starting to rule us all and so he will eventually be able to divide the land for gain (take over the world) because we will all be under artificial intelligence; these computers are becoming so advanced that they are now starting to rule over all of us, we once ruled the creation of our own hands but the time is coming when the creation of our own hands will rule over us! Everything is going to go over to artificial intelligence in the end and there will be one main computer that rules the whole thing and that computer or modern statue will be the Image of the Beast! And what is the greatest of all dangers here? The greatest danger is that this image of the beast will indeed have a soul in that it can actually manipulate matter on a physical level from a spiritual level unlike the old statues, they couldn’t move matter! But what we have to consider to be the real danger here is that these computers that rule over many or in other words the “them that rule over many” will become possessed by demonic entities and so these demonic entities will rule over many through this strange god!
