witness: “attestation of fact, event, etc., from personal knowledge;” also “one who testifies;” originally “knowledge, wit,” formed from wit (n.) ness…a person who gives testimony.
Reflecting off the great weekend I had in Branson last weekend, I had to stop and remember perhaps the most powerful moment of the entire trip which I failed to mention in my report of the Future Congress in the last couple posts. It came on the day of travel on a flight from Branson Missouri to a lay over at Denver International Airport. After having breakfast with Douglas Hamp and Chris Pinto, we arrived at the airport and continued the conference in our own little way. The discussions were so fascinating that Doug decided to check to see if he can change his seat to sit in the same row as Chris Pinto. After successfully changing his seat, he told me I should ask to see if I can’t do the same. I eagerly went to the desk and got my seat changed to a row behind Doug and Chris.
Once we boarded the plane, I took my seat and realized that I was on the opposite isle from where Chris and Doug were. Not of much use to continue a conversation with them. But God has a funny way of working things out. Behind me were three ladies I met at the conference and to my right was a gentlemen named Keith who probably had no idea that he was about to get drenched with the Gospel.
As any conversation starts with a stranger, we began with small talk. He had asked about why I was in Branson and after describing the conference, he made a few remarks about how he doesn’t subscribe to religion. As we broke the ice, I began to ask him more about why he doesn’t believe in God or Jesus or “subscribe to any religions” as he put it. Most of it was answered with comments like, “well I’m a good person, I do good for others and so why do I need God or Jesus to live a good life?” Valid stance and I believe it’s a position many people take. I immediately recognized the opportunity and prayed to God for the words and wisdom of the Holy Spirit to work in me and in this brother Keith.
What happened in the next hour and a half was my first true experience of witnessing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a non-believer, in person. I had done some things online in email, and in forums, and chats, but never in person. I can’t get into all the details because it would take forever to write, and quite frankly, I don’t think I can adequately recall all the details of the conversation. But I will say that the Holy Spirit moved inside of my to give me verses, analogies, metaphors, and concepts that any apologist would ever need to defend and to properly explain the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Keith had described how his current girlfriend was a Christian and that she does the “church” thing. He also mentioned how he “tried the born again thing,” but that it didn’t really change anything or work for him. God bless this man Keith because he really was a good man with a great heart. But we got into a lot of issues regarding God and eventually Jesus Christ that he didn’t know about. His pastors, when he “tried the born again thing,” merely told him to pray about the questions he had, which is disappointing. But nevertheless, I began to discuss the concept of morality, where it comes from, and why we have the ability to even conceptualize morality. He, like I am sure many others, felt that the idea that you need God to be a moral person was absurd. I explained how that’s a common misunderstanding of what the believer is saying. What I tried to convey to him was that the ability to rationalize between good and bad must mean there is an ultimate good of which we can measure or base our measurement of morality off of (that was wordy, but I hope you get my drift). I used all the analogies for example, if gravity is a law, there must be a law giver; we know there is a “law” of physics, which warrants an author who put in place that law of which we would not exist if it weren’t there. In the same way, if there is an ability to measure morality, it must mean there is a perfect moral basis to reflect your own morality off of. This was just one example of several topics we covered in the conversation.
The only explanation I have to the endless thoughts, concepts, bible verses, and answers I had for this man’s questions was the Holy Spirit. I have done a good amount of reading on many issues and continue to read the bible as much as possible, but I had no idea that I was adequately able to not only defend my faith, but also share the good news. I will have to say thanks to Chris White especially in this regard because his latest podcasts were very much on this issue of WHY the Gospel is the Good News.
At the end of the flight I said I would get off my soap box and told him thanks for listening. I asked him if it got him to at least think about things, and he replied, “Oh you definitely got me thinking.” I gave Keith a card so who knows, he may read this very post at some point, so Keith if you’re reading this, I am praying for you brother.
I told him that you don’t need any ritual or test or anything to accept Jesus Christ into your heart. It’s not like a jacket you try on and you grow out of or you grow sick of. It’s actually, as Chris White has stated, “a supernatural event that occurs in your life.”
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17
The only regret I have from the entire conversation was not asking him if he wanted to accept Jesus Christ right there in the plane. I am kicking myself for not doing so, but at the same time, I recall in the moment, feeling the spirit tell me not to because I had already given him way too much to ponder. It doesn’t mean I don’t regret not asking anyways.
The idea of repentance appears in the bible over 100 times. Repent, Metanoeó in the Greek. “Meta” meaning change, “Noeó” meaning mind or to think or understand. It’s really that simple. So Keith, if you come across this post, all you have to do is repent. And also, to any of the three ladies who were behind me praying for me and for this man, thank you! Praise the Lord Jesus for all that He is and all that He does.

After the bumpiest plane ride of my life, I made it to Branson MO for the Future Congress! The shuttle from the airport to the hotel wasn’t any better: nearly 100 degrees with no AC and so bumpy that by the time I arrived at the Radisson Hotel, I felt I as sick as a dog. But there was no time for wallowing in my near regerjetative state pity. It was time to get crackin’.
Not 10 minutes after I had arrived, the conference was under way. I got to sit through Dr. Future’s history lesson and look at who is behind the coming war between Christians and Muslims and whose behind it. The information was startling. I can’t get into all the details, nor do I want to try, but suffice to say, not only was what we were taught in history classes in school biased, but the people, who call themselves Christians who promote the idea of a war do not reflect the Christ I know. It was quite disturbing to find out that the biggest names in the public platform of Christianity are in fact members of the knights of Malta. In other words, beware of the rising ecumenical church.
Then it was Ed Griffins talk on the second look at the federal reserve. This was interesting and depressing at the same time. Ed’s main driving point was that the trillions of dollars of debt we see today is money that “poof” appeared, and is steadily “poof” disappearing. He explained why inflation is not increasing while dent keeps rising. Essentially, the problem is that the rich are choking the middle class out of existence.
Chuck Missler was the final speaker of the evening. I can’t even describe all the amazing things he discussed but the message was clear. “Discover your purpose for Christ” because the world needs it and we are headed into some extraordinary times. His talk was itellectually stimulating as always, but also very moving. You can feel Chucks passion and even some of the pain he has endured in his life. One of the most moving moments was when he broke down in tears as he described how everything he stood for as an American has been taken away from him. And it’s true. Our country of America is a shadow of what it stood for and if me, a 28 year old second generation Jepanese-American can see it, I can’t imagine how Chuck feels. As usual, the content was extremely intellectual and the level of sophistication that this man has and the brilliance of the way he shows Gods amazing design in this world is second to none. It was truly a blessig to see in person a man whose books and mp3s have completely changed my worldview and my knowledge of God.
Then it was the awesome and well anticipated View From the Bunker live and really, it doesn’t get more live than being 15 feet away from the one and only Derek Gilbert. The panel was Jim Fletcher, Cris Putnum, and Chris White. They discussed several things including apologetics and the importance of prophecy as part of evangelizing. They also got into several verses of the bible pertaining to prophecy. I recommend you download the podcast when it comes out.
First break for me was Chris White and a look at Zeigeist and the history of the Jesus myth. Chris as usual did a phenomenal job of demonstrating his point which was that the whole concept of the Jesus myth can only be traced back to the 18th century. In fact, he made the point that historians closer to the time of Jesus would have loved to point out that Jesus never existed, but instead wrote about how his miracles were tricks and slight of hand thus showing that even the enemies of Christianty did not deny his existence.
Next was Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the news. He revealed his story of a UFO encounter of a third kind. This was a personal story that he had never shared publically. He went on to describe how the experience shaped his faith and how the UFO deception is real and they’re not from outer space. This was defy Italy a very intriguing talk and the topic of which I know I have always been interested in.
I then went to the talk of dimensionlessness by David Hitt. This was a very interesting presentation. The first half was brilliant describing te attributes of God from the stand poit of a physicist but doug so by showing less dimensions, or no dimension, rather than multiple dimensions. The problem came when he applied it to biblical principles. What David Hitt tried to do was all well and fine, trying to show that it’s possible that we have a dimensionless existence… to our existence. The issue was that he made it sound like classic calvinism. In fact, I would say it was calvinsm. I know David was not doing this intentionally and he did make a disclaimer saying that he’s not a biblical scholar and thus could have issues. I believe some refining needs to be done with the application of the implications with dimensionlessness. But again, the way he was able to describe Gods unique qualities were done very well.
The next talk I saw was Ed Griffin again with a look at the UN. Any doubts I had that the UN is evil was eliminated with this talk. It is very clear that everything the UN says they stand for, the opposite is true. Their own publications were the proof. Most people buy the propaganda and blindly support a group that is takg away freedoms and rights of the people of the earth. Animal Farm by Orwell was his prime analogy to what the UN did and is doing now.
Chris Pinto was next. This was a deeper look at the work he is known for with the Hidden Faih of our Founding Fathers. It was interesting to hear the gasps from the folks who had not heard this material. The United States government were certainly not founded in biblical Christianity. Our political system today stands on the shoulders of these founding fathers.
Randall Price was the final speaker and it was just amazing. After going through some history of the search for Noah’s Ark, the biblical implications and really, worldview implications Price gave us information that was fresh and new, like “we learned this yesterday” new. After using satellite imaging technology, Price has uncovered on the top of mount Ararat, an anomaly under 30 to 100 feet of snow. The shape of the structure eerily resembles Noah’s Ark. Him and his team are going on the excavation of a lifetime of which may be the greatest discovery in history. But this would not be for any personal gain, but to the glory of God. We must pray for him and his teams safety.
Finally, another episode of a View From the Bunker. This time it was Ron Skiba, Jeff Patty, and a late arriving Russ Dizdar. I had the brilliant idea of being in the chat room while sitting in the audience but I basically turned into ” live room question relay man” for the people in the audience. What happened was, people began passing notes to me with questions on it for me to type in the chat room so that Derek could ask them to the guests. It worked out well. The conversations were fascinating stemming from nephilim and fallen angels to the Antichrist and spiritual warfare. It was the kind of episode that makes PID radio and the work of Derek Gilbert so great.
It’s been an honor to shake hands with the likes of Russ Dizdar, Tom Dunn, Derek Gilbert, Chris White, Rob Skiba, Dr. Future, and meet with tons of folks who are awake, aware and alive in Christ. But for now I need to get some sleep to finish off the last day of the conference. If I wasn’t posting this from my iPhone at 3 am Branson time, I would do links to each of the speakers but to make it easy, just visit futurecongress.com for info on any of the folks I mentioned. Good night.
But I’m sitting in Chris Whites second debunking of zeitgeist. So gotta go for now and I will post again tomorrow.

As I began the video editing and voice over process of the film, I realized that I need to rewrite the script to add several key points that I want to have in the film. I knew this was going to happen. For some reason, I have to actually get the editing and voice over part of the film started before I can get a better grasp of how to fit some of the specific information that I’ve been collecting over the last couple months into the film. It’s just the way I work I guess. I would drive a professional film studio batty.
Please continue to pray for the project since again, some of the information is pretty dark and disturbing and although I knew about these concepts, once you dig into the literature, it really starts to mess with you. In light of all this research on the new age and the new world order, something very interesting happened at the local library.
I believe that some things can occur as coincidence, and other times they’re just flat out a deliberate message in some kind of prophetic inspiration from the Holy Spirit, or even a sinister message from the side of the fallen. I’m not sure which category this falls into, but I have to admit, it made me laugh! I was at a local library doing a search on the library kiosk for some books. I typed in the phrase “new age” into the search engine and I was returned a whopping, 666 search results! I chuckled out loud and people diligently doing their research and homework looked at me since I committed library sin by making noise. I quickly pulled out my phone and took a snap shot of it.
I think it’s probably some kind of ironic coincidence, but I found it amusing nonetheless. Needless to say, the project is coming along, but balancing work, family, and film making is much tougher than I ever anticipated. If I am able to, I will include an interview with LA Marzulli, and Douglas Hamp in the film. Chris White will obviously be quoted several times. Marzulli and Hamp are local guys so we are in the process of emailing each other trying to figure out a date and time to do the interview. If they don’t make the film, I will make sure to make a post here on it.
I want to personally thank Chris White again for mentioning this blog and my youtube page on his podcast since it has had a huge response and more publicity than I could have ever imagined. Thank you Chris! And God Bless!

After a lot of prayer, I decided to embark on a little journey to put together a documantary film. The information I’ve been learning over the past year has been overwhelming and I feel this will serve as a form of therapy for me personally to organize the information and let it all out to “get it off my chest” so to speak. But in doing so, my hope and prayer is that someone will come to know the Lord through the project. The goal is quite simple. Save a soul. If it get’s one person to turn to the Word, then mission accomplished. I’ve personally never experienced bringing someone to the Lord, but I feel like this is Him using me to do just that. I ask for your prayers as I go through the process since like many who have come before doing this type of thing, the information can be really dark, depressing, and straight up evil.
The premise of the film is to really show what Chris White alludes to in Aquarius: Age of Evil and David Icke Debunked. That is to show how the New World Order that all the truthers are pointing to is only the framework that is going to be destroyed and that what replaces it is going to be the REAL New World Order. Of course this is a really short synopsis of all the things I get into, but
I was speaking to a gentlemen today who was pointing me to what is called The Book of Urantia. Here is a direct quote from him. “The Urantia Book is the 5th epochal revelation to mankind, Jesus’ life and teachings were the 4th. ” After some discussion, he claimed how this book does not de-deity Jesus as so many other new age teachings seems to do, but rather explains how Jesus was one of many deity figures. He explained, “The ub (Urantia Book) does not de-deify Christ in any way as the Son of God-it does state that Jesus is one of many Sons of God that exist in the universe.” To that my response was that saying that Jesus is one of many is very much denying that Jesus is the UNIQUE Son of God.
The conversation got even more interesting when I began to explain to him why the Bible is the only book that is 100% on it’s prophecies so far, and how the incredible accuracy of writing about future events before they occur should be a testament to the validity of the Word. I pointed him to the book of Daniel and the book of Revelation which shows how the bible writes about a world government or a one world system. Upon doing so, he refered back to the Book of Urantia stating, “the ub does elude to eventually there being one govt, one language, one race etc. As society continues to evolve and at some point being administered by what is referred to as a ‘planetary prince’ sent from the local universe administrators- very heavy stuff indeed…” I almost gasped. “…a ‘planetary prince’ sent from the local universe administrators…” Could this be the prince of the power of the air that Ephesians 2 refers to? To me it was just another case of a new age writings deceiving those seeking spiritual truth. I find it astonishing that all of these new age ideas speak about the same thing but have different names. It’s almost becoming predictable.
It’s conversations like this that really fires me up. I don’t get to talk to too many folks about this topic so any time I do, I feel validated about my faith in Jesus and what my purpose is in Christ. Anyone who wants to start a conversation, please feel free to email me and I would love to bounce ideas and information to see if there might be some things that could be presented in the movie. God Bless!

This is a short video showing how America’s founding fathers really felt about the bible and Christianity.
We are taught in school that America was founded on Christian principles, that the men who wrote the Constitution and founded this nation were all good Christian men. According to the research done by Chris Pinto of Adullam Films, this idea is false. Not only were many of the men not Christians, but they adamantly spoke out against Christianity. In fact, much of their philosophy did not stem from biblical Christianity, but rather Francis Bacon’s “New Atlantis” which eerily spoke of how this nation should look with great accuracy.
The knock is that America did not want to have a monarch in the same way Europe did where religion and government were one. They were able to establish this through the separation of church and state, but was there a more sinister agenda as to why they did this? Is there a reason why the word “God” does not appear in the Constitution? Furthermore, not only were many of these men not Christians, but many of them were part of a secret society of Freemasons, or Rosicrucians. When you trace the concepts and ideologies of these secret societies back to its roots, one finds that at the center of their philosophy lies the idea that Lucifer or Satan is actually god. So with that in mind, ask yourself, what did the founding fathers REALLY have in mind for the United States of America? Could it be that America was founded on ancient prophecies to resurrect Apollyon/Apollo/Osiris/Nimrod, aka the antichrist?

This video is on Satanic Origin of Secret Societies.
There are men disseminated into the fabric of society who come together in an underground, secret network. They work together believing that they are making a positive impact on humanity. But there is the heart of the deception. The real purpose for these groups is to help carry out the plan of Lucifer to destroy mankind. Secret societies are the ultimate pillar of deceit using the very thing Satan wants to destroy to carry out his agenda.
THE VOICE OF KENT HOVIND
I know that someone like Kent Hovind is controversial in many ways. I’m not going to sit here and go through where I do and where I don’t agree with Hovind on various topics. However, his portion of knowledge and assertions on the Masonic Order and it’s origin in my opinion is spot on. He is currently incarcerated on multiple federal counts but I believe he is in some ways stronger in his faith than most of us would like to believe. How many of us would stick to a viewpoint in favor of God even if it meant it contradicts law? Of course the bible does tell us to “”Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” Mar 12:17, but either way, Hovind, however controversial, still stood his ground and was willing to go to prison to stand up for what he believed in.
This video is the proof that God was in my life working in me before I ever even thought about seeking truth or more specifically, Jesus. After picking up the guitar at age 11, I practiced everyday wanting to become a rock star. But as I went from band to band not getting the right combination of people committed enough to live out the dream, I decided to record tunes just for fun in my own time. I pitched several tracks to various publishing opportunities, but nothing ever panned out. I understand now, why they never did. This track you hear is one of those tracks that I recorded back in college. It’s amazing that just 6 years after leaving college, this track is used to show God’s word in light of some of the darkest stuff out there. Music I wrote and recorded as a means to show my own talent is not used to glorify the one God who was behind the music all along.

“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” EPHESIANS 6:11
This video is the first of several to come. They will all be similar in nature, short 3-5 minute blurps on various topics relating the world to the Word
Almost every layer of society has dark spiritual infiltration. This may sound like a sweeping generalization but in fact, this has been true since the days of Adam and Eve who allowed the legal right for Satan to reign on earth. The only difference is, today we have technology; clear, fast, and precise forms of communication capitalized and controlled ultimately by money and by private entities who own that money. So with economics being at the top of the list for things that influence and control society, there is no doubt that this is the place Satan has done most of his work. The ripple effect that this creates throughout every facet of our world is evident in the various layers of our social and behavioral existence.
“When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.” MARK 6:34
I was very weary of putting this video out since it is on the heavy side. After starting my research on transhumanism to create my next video, I felt led to take a peek at several other topics concerning the agenda for the future of humanity. I began to see more clearly how vast the influence of the devil’s schemes are in this world. On one end, the corruption is through and through in that sin is the root cause of all of humanities short comings. But on the other hand, we can analyze the world of art, entertainment, economics, politics, spirituality and more to expose these schemes and to spread the Gospels as the ultimate solution to defeat them.
My next video is already done but I think I am going to make a few tweaks on it in the next week. My goal is to put one video out every week for as long as I feel led to do so. This whole process has been in many ways, a culmination of the things God has given and shown me in life. It’s evident to me that God was working in all the things that happened before I became a believer. These videos aren’t super high quality or high production. I’m just a guy who loves doing this kind of thing. And what better way to do it than to tell about Jesus?
The question I want these videos to provoke in people’s minds is, what is your source? Is it God or the world. Those of us who have accepted Jesus into our lives have the Holy Spirit within us influencing our hearts and our minds with every decision we make. It’s a privilege and a gift to live and breath everyday. I believe it is important to express the teachings of Jesus Christ in every way imaginable while we are here, alive on earth. How can someone who defies logic, reason, nature, and seemingly time by foretelling future events be anyone else than God in human flesh? He wouldn’t be God if he was unable to do these things. Jesus taught us, so I believe it is important for us to teach the world by living the Word the best we can.

ANYONE SEEN THE ANYBOT?
Imagine walking into your local coffee shop to get your morning coffee when you notice a peculiar machine enter the store. It’s a robot which is an avatar of someone sitting in an office somewhere far away. You watch the robot as he orders a scone, pays, leaves a nice tip, and then rolls out the door. Well that’s exactly what happened in Mountain View California some three months ago.
Introducing the Anybot. The Anybot moves on two wheels, has a long stem for a body and a head at the top where interaction occurs. This mobile avatar robot has its gliches and problems, and it is still uncertain if the technology will take off in the business world where it is promoted, but it’s clear that the release of products like this is another step in the march towards a transhumanistic society.
The public has been immersed in the indoctrination of this technological movement for some time now. It’s amazing to think that just 15 years ago, people had pagers instead of cell phones, wrote letters instead of emails, and actually had to walk down to the coffee shop to buy a scone. The various ingredients are beginning to settle into their place to perform their given role in the ushering in of a One World Government and technology is certainly one of them. We see how social media has laid the ground works for a panoptic society. The outright occult symbolism in entertainment. The care-free narcissistic nature of our social philosophy and the propaganda spoon fed to the masses through the use of media. All of these things have become more easily accessible to the public through technology. And in this time of tremendous change, we find ourselves entrenched in an age of history deeply characterized by deceit. Introduce new forms of technological and biological enhancement to promote a quickening of natural evolution and what do we get? The extinction of man, and the birth of the post-human; transhumanism.
TRANSHUMANISM AND THE ANTI-CHRIST
The picture here is of a superhero called Metalder. This was a television show from the late 1980’s in Japan where a man who was almost killed in an automobile accident became a crime fighter, half man, half robot. Sounds like a familiar plot line doesn’t it? I watched VHS tapes of this show sent to me from my relatives in Japan back when I was a child which might explain my odd fascination and passion with this topic. I’ve listened to and read lots of Tom Horn of Raiders News Network and author of the book Apollyon Rising 2012 and Forbidden Gates, regarding this issue, who I believe is the front runner speaking out to expose the dangers of this movement. He has a lot to say on transhumanism and is a great source for extensive information and research. It seems the Christian community is extremely uninformed of what is quietly unfolding in the world of science in labs around the world. Thus, I feel called to make my second film for youtube on this topic and how it ties into the New World Order agenda to provide another medium where people can be informed and ultimately saved. I also believe that there are deep spiritual implications to what the transhumanists want in the goal of singularity, which is the creation of super-intelligence which would combine the best attributes of man, and the speed to process information of the machine, resulting in a complete blur in what it means to be human. We’ve seen the movies with artificial intelligence and the hypothetical moral dilemmas that may arise from these scenarios. But is it possible to consider that these advancements in genetics, bio-chemistry, nanotechnology, and more will usher in the Anti-Christ himself?
I’m going to get really speculative here and just present some food for thought. I am not a bible scholar, or a theologian but I do have a passionate desire to learn and grow in my faith from the Word of God and a personal relationship with Jesus. So that being said, let me dive into this ultra speculation of which I am sure I will make some terrible assumptions and generalizations that will have theological contradictions all over the place. Just a warning and again, these are just ideas, not truths or new doctrine since we can never really know the exact details for the fulfillment of prophecy until it happens.
“Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.” -REVELATION 13:11-17
In verse 14, it is mentioned that the second beast “ordered them to set up and image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword yet lived.” Now I believe that the beast who was wounded by the sword yet lived is a counterfeit ressurection scenario. But is it simply going to be supernatural in the same way God resurrected Jesus? Or, because it’s counterfeit, could it be possible that this beast who dies, lives no longer in flesh but is “brought back to life” in the main frame of a computer hard drive? The reason why I propose this thought is because of one of the goals for transhumanists is the advent of uploading our consciousness into a computer. People like Ray Kurzweil have promoted the idea and many like minded folks firmly believe that this is where we are headed; a breakdown of that it means to be human, until we are no longer biological beings but a free flowing consciousness existing in the aether of the main frame information network. This is synonymous with another idea stemming from the singularity movement to charge the particles of all creation so that it becomes “self aware,” in other words, wi-fi across the universe. Getting back to the beast, lets say that humanity achieves this great transition between biological life form as we see today to a life form encased in the computer network with the event of the “resurrection” of the beast. Well this naturally calls for creating an avatar for the beast to be able to interact with the world at a physical level. Thus, “He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.” Revelations 13:14 NIV. Then subsequently in the next verse, “He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.” Revelation 13:15 NIV. I may be crazy, but I can totally see how this entity living in the aether of the internet who is a conscious spiritual being could use this machine or avatar to cause great destruction around the world, physically killing and enslaving those who didn’t bow to him. And to go even further, the next two verses state, “He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.” Revelations 13:16,17 NIV. Again, as a conscious being living in the internet, he would have the capability to usher in a new form of commerce to any and all who are linked up to the internet by means of a global, digital version of social security numbers or personal identification. Now my projection is that using the internet in a world where singularity is accomplished would not be sitting in front of your PC for a couple hours a day to read the news. In fact, as some predict the smart phone to be the device that the majority of the nation will be on the internet through within the next couple of years, it is also fact that within the next decade, our cell phones will be used to buy, sell trade etc. The technology is already here, but as we move along, these new integrated systems of technology will become more and more advocated, promoted, and encouraged just as we see iPhone and iPads being promoted today. This movement is well funded by us, with particular focus being on the military industrial complex to create super soldiers and other advanced weaponry. In the same way fire arms revolutionized the methods to which land was conquored, so will be the transhuman army be used to carry out the agenda of the enemy.
Now I understand these are wild thoughts. Perhaps I should go ahead and make a science fiction story out of it. I totally would if it hadn’t been done in one way or another several times already. The point is, Christians, and even non-believers alike, must begin to ask some serious questions about transhumanism, and where it’s all heading. Along with physical problems that may arise, there are certainly spiritual issues, but even more, ethical and moral issues that will require a new system of law to be practiced. I believe it’s very important and we would be foolish not to discuss these things. It’s all there in plain sight. This new technological revolution may be the groundworks for all of these prophecies written about the end days to manifest.
THE CORPORATE WORLD
My beloved wife just attended a conference for her job. She is the manager of service desk in the IT(Information Technology) department of a major corporation here in southern California. This conference had cutting edge companies and people in the realm of information technology, communication, and strategy on the corporate platform. As my wife sat through the first keynote speaker, the mentality of the people at this conference became clear. This is where my wife told me about the Anybot. This gentlemen who is the CEO of a major IT organization said things like, “You ARE the data!” and “I’ll be the first in line to get chipped.” These quotes and the overall worldview of this guy is interesting for a couple reasons. One, the corporate IT field is basically testing grounds for any new forms of technology or communication tools in the corporate environment, hence inventions like the Anybot. This will undoubtedly lead to the quickening of the integration between man and machine by means of practical application. Second, the attitude that “we are the data” and the comment about getting chipped is a reflection of the philosophy for these corporate environments. Driven ultimately by money, the men and women in this field of work are willing to get chipped in order to sustain their job, keep up with the technology, and the belief that the world is somehow going to be a better place because he or she can now exchange thoughts and ideas using their highly integrated bio-technical brain rather than the slow and limited old way of typing emails.
I know I was kind of all over the place with this post, but my hope is that we can start discussions, fellowship, and ultimately reconnect and strengthen our relationship with Jesus Christ. I mentioned earlier that I am working on a film for youtube on this topic and so if you have any feedback or input, please feel free to contact me. I believe not enough people, especially Christians are talking about this issue and I also believe it is a great topic to witness Christ and evangelize to the world since the phenomenon is very real and tangible. And as a final note, I just want to say that if you’re still reading this, I thank you for putting up with the sporadic and probably a very un-scholastic look at those verses in Revelation.

It’s not an easy thing to be a “Christian” in the world today. The skepticism, doubt, intellectual and scientific objection and at times, downright hatred towards any religious affiliation, especially Christianity, can easily lead to us running into the arms of our own circle of friends, family, and church who agree with us at large avoiding the outside world who beckons an explanation within the boundaries of their own standards for what is rightfully one’s own faith. Often times, Christians in general are accused of having the “I’m right and you’re wrong” mentality towards the world. In my experience, the majority who do the finger pointing are merely doing just that; pointing fingers. They seldom offer any rational explanation or a reputable alternative other than their own worldview which may or may not have any weight to begin with and is often associated with the agenda to discredit Christianity and religion in general. Other times their claims and arguments against Christianity tend to be misunderstanding the basic principles of faith, misinformation or out right lies. In this scientific culture, ravaged by intellect, logic, the need for empirical evidence to deem anything as fact, and dare I say a borderline fascist form of scholarship, what does it mean to be a Christian and how do we cope with this opposition?
Most people regardless of faith still consider America to be at large a Christian nation. But the word “Christian” has become very obscure. It’s often synonymous with a political position, ethical and moral choke holds, and other traditions and rituals that categorize itself as being a religion or worse yet, a cult. We’re allegedly the cause of wars, suffering, hatred, division and anything negative associated with humanity. We are the exclusivists (I think I just made up a word) who don’t accept any scholastic, scientific, and intellectual discoveries which directly contradict our worldview. But if we are to be honest, the church is not free from its own faults. The church at large has not done a great job in addressing various topics such as homosexuality, paranormal, supernatural, etc. Although there seems to be a movement of Christians heading in this direction, the focus at large seems to be in the condemning of others, that is to say going on the defense, rather than showing God’s will through our lives. This is not to say that we Christians should not partake in apologetic inquiry, but rather pointing out the retaliating nature of debates and arguments with a non-believing world seem futile.
The issue the secular world has with Christians is often limited to a sweeping generalization of the behavior of certain individuals who labeled themselves “Christian”. Heretical teaching is real, false teachers are abound, and un-biblical and unsound representation of the word of God is undoubtedly out there and has been throughout the ages. But this by no means proves or disproves the deity of Jesus Christ and the authority of the written Word. Behavior does not verify belief. However, it is apparent that our behavior does affect the perception of God to the unbelieving world. As non-sequitur as that first argument is, it is still our responsibility as believers to conduct ourselves in a certain manner to portray God into the world and re-present the truth to the best of our ability.
I remember growing up seeing people picketing on the street corner with signs that said, “You’re going to Hell unless you believe in Jesus!” This was a tremendous turn off and one of many reason why I thought Christians were nuts growing up. Although I’ve come to believe that statement, I would never hold up a sign and tell someone that they are going to hell since I understand that God is the judge, not me. These methods can be seen as pointing the finger back at the non-believing world instead of focusing on the calling and purpose set before us in Christ. I am certainly guilty. As someone who grew up without any faith or religion, and being somewhat a competitive person, I often times feel good when debating with a non-believer and logically break down their arguments or claims. But the feeling is short lived and I often times repent and think about how the point is not to win an argument, the point is to share the gospel so that the message of Jesus Christ can be relayed clear and concise. If we can focus on this, all of the attempts to discredit or outright bring down Christianity becomes mute. If we as Christians truly believe that the bible is the Word of God and that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, then we really don’t have to stress over the opposing world. I’ve heard how the bible is like a lion; it doesn’t need defending, just simply let loose. Hebrews 4:12 comes to mind:
“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”-HEBREWS 4:12
As an AV and sound engineer for a church, I get to sit through a lot of services and events. A couple weeks ago, I was assigned to a Jr high service. In it, the Jr high pastor had a message that was so simple yet very profound. It was basically that there are actually five gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and the fifth gospel being YOU! Our lives are meant to be a representation of the gospel. But this can only be done through our own decision to do so, and a willingness to let God’s will be done. Another good friend and pastor once made an analogy that each one of our lives is like the individual square mirror on a disco ball reflecting God’s light into the room (world). The better we polish the mirror, the better we reflect the light.
“You are the light of the world.” -MATTHEW 5:14
NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
So as we come together on this national day of prayer, let us remember and take a moment to pray for our government, our media, education, business, military, family, and the church. For me personally, as a Christian who has a fascination with conspiracy theory, paranormal, supernatural and other topics that aren’t found in a typical Christian, it’s easy for me to point the finger and call out the obvious darkness and the problems that is present in the sectors of society I mentioned above. But today, I am humbled and need to remind myself that God has gifted me with a tremendously awesome life. I think it’s important to expose the darkness, but sometimes, we just need to pray.
Government – Pray for our leaders, as well as the judges in our courts. Ask God to grant them wisdom to act with integrity.
Media – Pray on behalf of the actors, musicians, and athletes our young people seek to emulate. Ask the Lord to strengthen and embolden any Christians in these fields. But more importantly, pray for those who are willingly portraying and influencing our society away from truth, integrity, and morality, that they may have conviction and awareness of their influence and power.
Education – Pray for our young people. Bless them and pray for the teachers and leaders to provide a morally sound and wholesome environment.
Business – Pray that God will raise up His ambassadors in the workplace. Pray for God’s will to be working through our daily tasks and assignments. Pray that our executives, business leaders, and corporations to conduct themselves honorably and honestly.
Military – Pray for the troops who serve each day at the bases, around the world, and here within our borders. Pray for their families. Pray for the Lord’s protection of these brave men and women. Pray also for those who have lost a loved one in battle. Ask that God’s comfort would be upon them in a special way. Pray that our media’s accounts of US Military actions are relayed fairly and impartially. Pray for divine protection and guidance for our armed forces. Ask God to intercede for military chaplains and loved ones at home.
Family – Pray for loving homes that model the virtues such as sacrifice, patience, and unconditional love to a watching world. Pray for the family to be preserved as God intended. Pray for those whose families are broken. Pray for those who feel alone and hopeless since the truth is that we are all adopted children of our heavenly Father.
Church – Pray for unity and boldness in proclaiming God’s Word!

Last night we all saw Obama address the country in a speech that made him sound like he was the ultimate military leader portraying himself as the superstar president who brought down the leader of the terrorists who has been at the heart of much of the threat to Americans and the world in the last two decades. So what is really going on? Conspiracy theorists will run amuck saying that there is no proof of his death. Others danced in the streets and chanted “USA!” making us no better than any other nation who celebrates at the death of an alleged enemy. I’m all for national pride, but I get an unsettling feeling in my gut that this borders a “national cult”-ish mentality. In my mind, the reaction of the American people beckons the question, does this not further promulgate division? Does this not further divide us as a humanity? Does this bring us closer to peach? To me, it proves the deception that so many of us are under. I believe no one has all the answers, and that we each do our best to re-present the truth the best we can. But there are too many questions here for any honest truth seeker to just believe the information being spoon fed by the media.
In my opinion, this is another step in constructing the illusion of safety in America. Have we gotten closer to peace because we killed Bin Laden? I find that hard to believe. At best, this event was something that can ease the minds of those who were directly effected by the attacks on 9-11 and at least give them a sense of peace and justice. Outside of that, I think having too much national pride can be harmful to the “world peace” cause that so many people say they are advocates of.
I am going to get a bit more speculative on this topic. First off, back in 2001, if we are to assume that Bin Laden was the mastermind behind the 9-11 attacks, what it did was “unite” the country in an uproar to justify the US going to war. It was pitched as the “War on Terror” and as something that Americans did not ask for, but needs to be done for the safety of the country. In a similar way, could this possibly be a deliberate act to justify “pulling the trigger” on other attacks on our country or elsewhere around the world by these so called, “terrorists”? Again, I am speculating, but I find it difficult to believe that this is any kind of victory for anyone.
The second layer of this is getting more to my conspiratorial mindset. What important event happening around the world is being snuck by under the radar due to this ultimate distraction? This weekend has been very eventful with the Royal Wedding, the beatification of John Paul II, and now the announcement of the alleged death of Bin Laden. Some have pointed out the occult significance of the day May 1. Since I don’t have any reference to that, I won’t make further comments on it, but getting back to the issue, I always ask “Why?” and “Who benefits?” when it comes to large world events such as this one.
Why are all these things happening at the same time? Coincidence? That’s certainly a possibility and cannot be ruled out. But if you dig a little deeper, and compare it to the agenda of the elites, there are several questions that arise. First, was the use of the word “I” in Obama’s speech to promote himself as the sole proprietor of the death of Bin Laden a means to get himself elected to office again? It’s possible. His popularity was swaying in this country and this speech has definitely been a defining moment in his presidency. But deeper than that, on a personal level, why did I have such a hard time believing anything Obama said in his speech? Of course I have a hard time believing any politician, but this particular speech for some reason hit me in the wrong way. I kept thinking to myself, “How many Americans are going to buy this?”
Another question that came to mind was, “How does this event correlate with the master plan of the NWO and Illuminati?” I don’t think there is a simple answer to this one, but off the top of my head, I would say that this is a perfect gauge for the elite leaders to see how Americans in general are swayed by information coming from the media and government. If Obama is a puppet, he did a great job last night, since the crowds in front of the White House grew late into the night celebrating the alleged death of another human being. Furthermore, like I mentioned before, this could be a green light for the terrorists to begin a “retaliation” process justifying their camp to attack.
I know these are speculations and I’ve probably asked more questions than anything else here, but I hope it creates conversation amongst your peers, friends, and relatives since these are tumultuous times we are seeing and we need to talk about it. I’ve always felt that there is a “connection” between every political event portrayed on the world stage with all the other topics I hope to discuss on this blog like UFO’s, Aliens, Giants, Forbidden History, Conspiracy Theory, the Occult etc etc etc. But the best way to gauge any situation is to hold it up to the light of scripture. This is dangerous since many people in the coming weeks will find bible verses and passages to fit what we have just seen. This can be misleading and dishonest, but it’s our job to be discerning. If Bin Laden rises out of the sea alive in three days with a head would and a busted arm, that would be a whole different thing! God Bless.
