Our technocratic civilization has reached such dizzying heights, that even the boundaries of mortality are being challenged. We envision humanity spreading out into the solar system, and then into the rest of the Universe. We fiddle with the very code of life, with barely a thought about the consequences. We engage in the massacre of our precious children and plot the murder of billions.
This vile civilization of ours cannot be allowed to continue, so it won’t. God will shake the world and destroy our rebellion against Him.
The question is whether you will be ready, when God tears down our carefully crafted way of life.

We Must Be Stopped
I often find myself inspired by the beautiful and intelligent woman who I married. I can be tootling along, in my own world of financial-this and political-that, when an exclamation from her turns my own thinking upside-down.
This week was a case in point.
There I was, minding my own business, thinking about financial armageddon, when the ever-so-lovely Mrs. Little expressed outrage over something said by some guy named Hugo de Garis.
Hugo de WHAT?
Garis. Hugo de Garis. Retired mad scientist, attempting to engineer the end of humanity by artificial intelligence – or Artilect, as he wishes to call them.
Oh, THAT Hugo de Garis.
Right. Crazy nutjob. Now retired.
I first ran across Hugo, when watching a video about the coming ‘singularity’ that so many technophiles were eagerly pursuing.
What a weird guy.
I just did a quick search on OmegaShock.com and found that first moment when I ran into him. It was 2011, and it was here:
When Do We Hit the Limit
That was almost exactly four years ago. And, we’ve done nothing but accelerate towards our goal of a god-like power.
Here is what I said in that earlier post, four years ago:
I’ve been wondering about this for a while. I’m curious about the point where God says, “this far, and no farther.” What does that point look like? How close are we? I think that part of it has something to do with the capacity for evil and the capacity to live forever – and even the capacity to become god-like.
God has a history of cutting civilizations down when they reach a certain ‘point of evil’. Unfortunately, when you sit within a society, it’s hard to know when that ‘point of evil’ is reached. Every generation advances beyond what their parents have created, and every generation decries the evil of the generations that follow. We get used to the evil of our parents and think nothing of adding our own bit to it. And, we cease to understand how truly evil we have become.
Think of poor Lot. He got used to the evil of Sodom and Gomorrah and didn’t see when it had past the point where it must be destroyed.
All that I can say is… well …we are so very close to that point. Very close, indeed.
Then, a few weeks later, I wrote this:
Building Our Next God
I hope that title caught your attention, because it is what our society is building towards – gods of our own creation. And, that article included this video:

The name of that video is:
That’s a fairly old video (2006), but I hope that title strikes you with the same feeling of horror that it strikes me with.
Are they really building their own Gods?
Yes, Virginia. They really are.
(The most important part of the video
is in the last 20 minutes.)
The Advancement Of Computers
It’s a little easier to see it now, than it was nine years ago – when that video was created. But, it’s still pretty difficult. Part of the reason is due to the fact that we think linearly and progress towards this technocratic apocalypse is exponential.
Take Moore’s Law:
The number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years.
That was an observation made by Gordon Moore, back in 1965. Gordon went on to co-found Intel, and the rest is history. And if anything, Moore’s Law might have been a bit too conservative, because this doubling of power has been happening about every 18 months.
Eventually, we will hit the point where our computers will be as ‘smart’ as we are. In fact, the Bible makes reference to one such computer, here:
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. 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.
I believe that to be an artificial intelligence. In fact, I believe that we have reached the point already, where the above is possible. But, there’s more than just ‘Artificial Intelligence’ to consider:

That was a pretty basic overview, but a good one.
Notice that he talked about the time frame:
That’s not very long. Not very long at all.
Keeping Us On Earth
Will we make it to Mars?
Nope. Not gonna happen.
At least, not in any permanent way.
Can you imagine a future where we have found a way off our planet and spreading throughout the Universe?
I can imagine it, and it’s a horrifying thought. As awful and sinful as we are now, just add technology and unlimited horizons. We would be a plague upon God’s creation. And, before you think that this is impossible, take a look at this:
Inflatable ‘space elevator’ invented by scientists
I find it interesting that the ‘inventor’ of this ‘space elevator’ is:
That’s the logo for Thoth Technology.
Who is this Thoth?
Oh. THIS is Thoth:
Right. Thoth, the Egyptian god of knowledge. Nice ibis head there, Thoth.
Is it a coincidence that Thoth Technology, inc. has a logo with the head of an Ibis?
No, there isn’t any coincidence here. These guys like the idea of identifying themselves with the Egyptian god of knowledge.
Will their idea work?
I don’t know, but I DO know that it is only a matter of time before we create a tower tall enough to reach into space. This is NOT an impossible idea, and there are many ways to do it.
Could it be that the ‘Tower of Babel’ was intended to reach outer space?
As a kind of space elevator?
I don’t know, and I’m not sure that it matters. What matters is that God cannot allow us to escape Earth. We are not fit for the unlimited frontiers and vast resources of the Universe. But, let’s pull back from outer space, and come down to terra firma.
The Bible doesn’t speak about colonies in outer space, so we won’t have to worry about that. Of course, that also means that we won’t reach the point where we escape our planet. God will knock us down long before then.
How about the growth in our ability to edit our own genes?
Rogue Genetic Engineering
That sounds disturbing. But…
…what about our ability to edit the genes of people, against their will?
How would YOU like it, to know that someone could edit your DNA, without your permission?
Like it or not, we’re almost there.
Here’s a quick discussion on genetic engineering:
Jamie Metzl discusses human genetic engineering
Remember that what they can do in a lab, they will eventually be able to do to everyone, outside the lab. All they would need to do is engineer a virus to do the job.
Have you forgotten how evil our society has become?
Half Of Britain’s Kids – Not 100% Heterosexual
Well, here’s this tidbit of information for you:
Sit and think about that for a moment. This is NOT natural. This MUST be the result of societal brainwashing. These poor kids have been hammered with a deluge of evil programming, to the point where half of Britain’s young people are at least bi-sexual in some way – if not fully homosexual.
Doesn’t that give you some idea of how evil our society has become?
Could it be that we have already gone past the same level of evil that moved God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?
Abortion Among Christians
Let’s pull this a little closer to home.
What about abortion?
The rate of abortions among Christians is only a little lower than the rate of abortion in the rest of society. I have mentioned this many, many times, but it is frighteningly true.
If you want clear evidence, here’s a quote for you:
In 2011, the Guttmacher Institute reported that two out of three women having abortions in the U.S. identified as Christian.
However, I have something new to add:
I finished that, this week. It is still a bit rough, but the last part is the result of several weeks of reading through the prophets, from Isaiah to Malachi. And, it is clear to me that Israel truly must be saved before the Great Tribulation begins. And, in the process of doing all that reading, I saw something important.
Micah 5 is an interesting chapter. It talks about the coming of Messiah, and Him being smitten. It talks about Israel being ‘given up’ and then returning. It also talks about an invasion and great devastation at the time of Israel’s return – just like the other prophets.
And then, in the last verse of the chapter, it says this:
And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.
I would think that the biggest solar flare in the history of the world… well …I would think that it would fit that verse perfectly.
Download And Read The Book, Yourself
As I said in the interview, I’m offering the book for free, in PDF form. You can download it here:
The section proving that Israel must be saved before the Great Tribulation is not included in the PDF. But, it is on the website. I will create a new PDF, once I have more material up – and once I have done another edit.
You will always be able to find the latest material – and edits – here:
There is an interesting aspect to the coming of Gog and Magog.
Did you notice that all the participants are Muslim?
Except for Gog and Magog?
But not Arab?
That’s right. There are no Arabs in this grand army that comes down to attack Israel. Only non-Arab Muslims and Gog.
Furthermore, we are seeing the fulfillment of prophecy
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
And, when it says ‘nation’, it literally means ‘ethnos’ – or, ethnic group.
What ethnic group is at the center of this prophecy?
Well, look at this report:
That’s right, it’s THIS ethic group:
They are invading Europe and turning Germany, France, Greece and many others, upside down. The cultural conflict that has been started by this Muslim invasion is tearing Europe apart.
Here’s the why and how:
(It’s nice to see one American politician stand up against foolishness. I would vote for this guy, for president.)
(How insane can you get!?)
(THAT ONE got my blood BOILING!!)
The other interesting part of the debate is the discussion about Israel.
If you are against Israel…
…then, you support Islam.
It really is that simple. And yes, that really is what the Arab-Israeli conflict is all about:
Islam versus Christianity and Judaism
Here are a few articles that caught my eye, this week:
(This one should make you a teeny-tiny bit uneasy.)
Does Jesus Know You?
I remember when I first heard this question:
Does Jesus know you?
That made me stop and think, and while I was thinking the speaker went on to say:
It doesn’t matter so much whether YOU know Jesus.
What matters is if JESUS knows you.
That was a startling moment for me, and I’ve been talking about that, ever since.
You may say that you know Jesus. And, it’s great, if you do. But, let me ask you a far more important question:
Does Jesus know you?
Your eternal life hangs upon the answer to that question.
If you are unsure, then you need to get your life right with God.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
