Revolution in Prophetic Affairs Vol. II

In the Upper Room Discourse (John 13-16), in the context of His impending trial, crucifixion, burial, resurrection, and departure (His Ascension), Jesus told His disciples that it was to their advantage that He go because when He does, the "Helper" (some translations say Comforter) would come. Jesus was referring to God the Holy Spirit who would convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment, as well as testify of Jesus and guide the believers into all truth (John 14:16-18, 16:5-11).


This divine narrative progresses with the Holy Spirit's descent on the Day of Pentecost, as chronicled in Acts 2, initiating His role as both the Comforter and the Restrainer through this new creation called the Church (1 Cor 10:32, 2 Cor 5:17, 2 Thess 2:7). This period extends from then, up to the time of the catching up of the Church (the Rapture), an event that will dramatically alter the Holy Spirit's operational role through the sudden disappearance of believers (who are sealed by the Holy Spirit- Eph 1:11-14, 4:30). Despite this functional change, the Holy Spirit's omnipresence assures His continued earthly presence.


After the Rapture, His engagement shifts back to mirroring that of His Old Testament role of guiding and supporting the faithful through tribulation, rather than sealing believers as in the Church age. This shift highlights the adaptability of the Holy Spirit's mission across different biblical dispensations, maintaining His foundational presence while varying His approach to meet the spiritual needs of each dispensation.


The reason I bring all this up is because, one second after the Rapture, everything will change forever. The natural will become the supernatural, and the normal will be replaced by the bizarre. The tried and true maxims that have guided mankind for millennia, can no longer be counted on to remain so. Everything will be turned on its head, and the world will be plunged into a time of monsters, mayhem, and madness.


From Revolution to Revelation


Before humanity and Earth's existence, a foundational cosmic upheaval was initiated by angelic beings within the celestial realm, pre-dating the universe's creation. This insurrection, led by Lucifer and the one-third of the angels who followed him, seeded the universe with discord and malevolence, for which we can trace the origins of evil back to this attempted insurrection.


Following their rebellion, these fallen angels dispersed throughout the cosmos, observing Earth's creation and humanity's emergence. The creation of humans, particularly in God's image, and their granted Earthly dominion sparked further dissent among these fallen beings, prompting Lucifer to destroy humanity by undermining their relational status with God, beginning with Adam's helpmate, Eve.


Lucifer's deception of Eve, employing the guise of a serpent, through promises of enlightenment, forbidden knowledge, and self-deification, catalyzed humanity's fall from grace, transitioning them from immortality to mortality, and from innocence to a corrupted state. This downfall set the stage for humanity's enduring quest to reclaim and restore what was lost in that Edenic glory, however, diverging towards a hedonistic paradise devoid of any divine governance.


Fast forward to more modern times.


From the Renaissance to modern times, Western civilization witnessed a relentless surge in technological progress, marked by milestones from Gutenberg's printing press in 1439 to recent forays into molecular manufacturing in the 21st century. This trajectory showcases humanity's knack for breaking barriers and expanding its technological horizons well beyond what was thought possible. This further underscores God's sobering comment on the profound capacity for human ingenuity and innovation, reflecting and also foreshadowing fallen man's commitment to advancing his understanding and manipulation of the natural world to the point of self-destruction.


And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Gen. 11:6

(my emphasis)


Considering the historical geopolitical dominance of both the British and Americans since the 1600s, English has effectively become the lingua franca for global operations. The proliferation of translation technologies further nullified the protective impediment of language diversity as a means to prevent the consolidation of the human race back under one system. Thus, as the barriers separating peoples and nations diminished, the collaboration for the advancement in technology flourished.


Post World War II, a battle-weary world capitalized on the promise of peace for the expansion of a clandestine military-intelligence-industrial complex to prevent further conflicts (i.e., peace through strength). Politically, Western governments reignited aspirations for the creation of a utopian world with the creation of the United Nations as a means to avoid war by bringing issues to the collective table rather than the battlefield. Across the varying spectrums of government and industry, leaders began to leverage advancements in technology and energy as a means to progress the human condition by ushering in a new era of peace and prosperity.


Across the varying spectrums of academia, industry, and science, this newfound progress was also meant to advance (or evolve) the human condition by finally curing unremitting illnesses and diseases that had long plagued mankind. This evolution was also meant to extend man's life back beyond 70 years. This strategic shift aims to enhance human capabilities, aligning with broader objectives of restoration of the Antediluvian Age (or the Golden Age according to pagan mythology) and the advancement within defense and strategic development sectors along the following lines:

  • The restoration of superhuman strength and powers via genetic manipulation & technological enhancement

  • The restoration of life extension & fullness, with the end state of achieving immortality

  • The restoration of the Edenic-like geological and atmospheric conditions that would support an enhanced humanity

  • The deification of man into godlike status


Thus, what mankind failed to do over the centuries through magic, alchemy, mythology, and religion, he would now attempt to do through technology and science. But what is this science and technology but a new, reimagined form of magic by the manipulation of the natural laws, the human body, and constructs of the physical realm?


Future Wars


As mentioned in Vol. I, the main differences between traditional warfare and mosaic, are along these four lines:


  1. Flexibility and Adaptability: Mosaic warfare emphasizes the ability to quickly adjust and reconfigure forces to meet emerging threats, as opposed to the fixed, predetermined structures common in traditional warfare.

  2. Decentralization: Whereas traditional warfare relies on a centralized command structure, mosaic warfare advocates for decentralized decision-making, allowing for faster responses to dynamic battlefield conditions. In this model, decisions could be made by both humans and artificially intelligent systems.

  3. Technological Integration: Mosaic warfare heavily incorporates cutting-edge technologies, including cyber capabilities, unmanned systems, and real-time data sharing, to enhance decision-making and operational effectiveness.

  4. Multi-Domain Operations: Unlike traditional warfare, which may focus on specific domains (land, air, sea), mosaic warfare is inherently designed for integrated operations across all domains, including space and cyber, to exploit vulnerabilities in an adversary's defenses.

For the remainder of today's discussion, our focus will shift to Item 3, highlighting that as a species, we have crossed several irrevocable thresholds in the pursuit of advancing technologies destined for future conflict applications.


Supersoldiers: At a recent Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) annual conference in 2023, military and industry scientists met to discuss the very real possibility of creating super soldiers. One of the comments captured in the linked Vice article, best summarizes the "why" this is going to happen regardless of any ethical or moral dilemmas the United States and other Western nations may bring forth.


Matook wrapped up his thoughts on pushing ethical boundaries by hinting that America’s enemies were doing eugenics to create better pilots. 


“We could find ourselves in a situation where our soldiers, as talented and trained as they are, are facing an unfair fight because another country is willing to say, ‘Hey, guess what, you, male, are a good aviator. You, female, are a good aviator. You’re gonna make the best aviator babies we’ve ever seen and I don’t care that you’re not married,” he said. The other panelists laughed nervously. “That’s a thing. Are they willing to go that extra step that we are not?” (My emphasis)


Yes, they are.


The US is quickly recognizing, yet again, that the ethical and moral standards central to its identity may become unsustainable constraints if it wishes to maintain global leadership. This realization echoes back to lessons learned from World War II, where the US and its allies encountered the Third Reich's and Imperial Japan's willingness to pursue victory at all costs, unhampered by ethical considerations. From the Holocaust, the Wunderwaffe program, and Nazi-occultism programs, to Japan's Unit 731, these historical instances demonstrate that strict adherence to morality could limit the US's strategic capabilities in the long run. This has led to the covert adoption of programs that prioritized (and will continue to prioritize) strategic advantage over traditional ethical constraints. Programs like:


  1. Operation Paperclip: Initially called Operation Overcast, and later renamed Paperclip, this was the most prominent effort to bring German scientists to the United States. It began in 1945 and involved the recruitment of more than 1,600 German scientists, engineers, and technicians, such as Wernher von Braun and his V-2 rocket team, to work for the U.S. government. Although initially focused on rocketry and aerospace technology to help outpace the Soviet's space program, it expanded to include experts in medicine, chemistry, and other fields.

  2. Operation Alsos: Part of the Manhattan Project, Operation Alsos was not directly involved in bringing scientists to the U.S. but was a military intelligence effort aimed at assessing and seizing German atomic bomb research, materials, and scientists. The operation helped lay the groundwork for understanding which scientists were pivotal in Nazi research efforts that could be beneficial to the United States.

  3. Operation Safehaven: This operation aimed more at preventing the escape of Nazi scientists to other nations rather than recruiting them. However, it played a role in identifying individuals and assets that could be useful to the U.S. in the post-war era against the Soviet Union.

  4. Operation Lusty (Luftwaffe Secret Technology): This operation's objective was to capture and evaluate German aeronautical technology, including scientists and engineers involved in the development of aircraft, rockets, and related technologies.


If the US, historically more culturally uniform and conservative, was open to collaborating with members of the German Third Reich—one of history's most malevolent regimes—it raises the question: what would stop them from developing supersoldier programs, including augmented humans or hybrids, to preserve their geopolitical advantage amid emerging threats?



2. Summoning Demons: In man's bid to achieve god-like status, he has created a technology that could (theoretically) achieve sentience (i.e., the Singularity) and take on life-like status. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been likened by many of the top minds in that field to that of opening Pandora's Box meaning, once opened, mankind would be unable to close it. Hearkening back to the aforementioned possibility that our enemies are racing along the same lines, the United States could not, not race along with them. As Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin once noted,


"Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia but for all of humankind. It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world."


Those threats, again, hearken back to the idea of unleashing something that cannot be contained. For example, if AI had been developed back in a time when the world was still largely analog, the threat would be minimal given the obvious lack of connectivity to many of the vital systems currently running the planet. Given that we are living in an age where almost everything is connected to the Internet, creating a new, sentient, Artificial Intelligence that would in theory, do what's best for itself, would immediately remove us (as its creators) since we pose the most obvious threat to its existence. Two of the great minds of our age had this to say about this potential risk.


"With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon. In all those stories where there's the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, he's sure he can control the demon. Doesn't work out." Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, Space-X, X (formerly Twitter), etc.


"Imagine summoning a demon or calling a superintelligent AI into existence... These things that we're building are not going to be human. They're going to be alien. And they're going to be, in all likelihood, not friendly." Geordie Rose, co-founder of D-Wave Systems and a prominent figure in the field of quantum computing and artificial intelligence


So why do it? Because someone is going to do it, and as Putin said, whoever does it first, is going to become the new master of the universe.


As such, this is where the United States Army's premier technology program, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) comes in with its AI Next Campaign: "This broad initiative represents DARPA's concerted effort to push the boundaries of AI research and development toward the creation of more sophisticated, autonomous systems that can perform a variety of tasks, potentially laying the groundwork for Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). The AI Next Campaign encompasses multiple projects aimed at enhancing the capabilities of AI systems, including reasoning, learning, and adapting to complex environments."


  1. The Machine Common Sense (MCS) Program: Part of DARPA's AI Next Campaign, the MCS program focuses on developing AI systems that possess a human-like ability to understand new situations, apply knowledge from one context to another, and use reasoning to solve problems. This type of common sense reasoning is seen as a critical step towards achieving AGI.

  2. The Lifelong Learning Machines (L2M) Program: Another initiative under DARPA, the L2M program aims to create AI systems that can learn and adapt to new tasks over their lifetime without requiring constant retraining or human intervention. The goal is to develop machines that can continuously improve and expand their capabilities, an essential feature of AGI.

  3. OpenAI and DeepMind: Although not government programs, entities like OpenAI and DeepMind (backed by significant investment from tech giants) are at the forefront of AI research, with missions that include the pursuit of AGI. OpenAI, for instance, has been explicit about its goal to safely achieve AGI that benefits all of humanity. DeepMind, on the other hand, has made significant strides in deep learning and AI research, contributing to the field's understanding of what might be necessary to reach AGI.

  4. The AI Exploration (AIE) Program: This program represents DARPA's effort to foster the rapid development of AI concepts and technologies that could drastically alter the landscape of AI research and application. By funding high-risk, high-reward projects, DARPA hopes to accelerate the path toward AGI by encouraging innovative approaches and solutions.


3. The 4th Industrial Revolution & the Internet of Things (IoT):


As previously noted, the Industrial Revolutions over the last two centuries have elevated Western Civilization to unparalleled prominence in human history. The key change brought about by these revolutions was not merely in technology but in their foundational dependencies. While the first two revolutions relied on power and machinery to replace human and animal labor, the latter two have been driven by advancements in information processing. Perhaps a visual graphic below depicts it more clearly.



The Information Age


By the late 20th century, the U.S. began integrating information technology across various sectors, including defense, recognizing its strategic importance. In the 1990s, operations like Desert Storm and Restore Hope showcased minimal military reliance on cyber systems, with cyber-warfare not yet mainstream among Army ground commanders due to the initial impracticality of computer technology.


The formation of the 609th Information Warfare Squadron in 1995 and the Coalition Vulnerability Assessment Team in 1996 indicated an early focus on cybersecurity, anticipating its future significance in military strategy. The emergence of the Global Positioning System (GPS) as becoming mission-essential by the late 1990s exemplified the increasing dependence on advanced information technologies.


This shift, from the embryonic use of GPS in the mid-1990s to its indispensability today, mirrors Moore’s Law—first proposed by Intel's Gordon Moore—suggesting computing power doubles every two years, a concept further refined by Jonathon Koomey to indicate computing efficiency doubling every 18 months. This rapid technological progression marked the transition from the industrial to the computer age in the post-1980s, propelling us into the information/cyber age by the 2000s and heralding it as the Fourth Industrial Revolution in American history.


Now, given that computer technology (both computing power and efficiency) is doubling at a rate of every 18-24 months, what will our next war look like regarding capability and threat?


Simply put, it will be terrifying.


Inevitably, computing power and efficiency have reached a plateau and the world will pause momentarily until the next big technological breakthrough occurs. It is this author’s opinion that when (not if) quantum computing goes mainstream, it will become the Fifth Industrial Revolution further demonstrating the exponential nature of these expanding revolutions. Now, there are two fundamental truths when it comes to quantum physics, mechanics, computing, and theory, and these are:


1) it works

2), we still don’t understand how it does


For those not clear or understanding the basics of quantum theory, it is this: Quantum computing operates on the principles of quantum mechanics, using quantum bits or qubits. Unlike classical bits that are either 0 or 1, qubits can exist in multiple states simultaneously thanks to superposition. This allows quantum computers to process vast amounts of data at once. They also utilize entanglement, a property where qubits become interconnected and the state of one can depend on the state of another, no matter the distance between them. This combination enables quantum computers to solve complex problems much faster than traditional computers, even though the full extent of how quantum mechanics works remains not entirely understood. It is both superposition and entanglement that gives quantum physics its enigmatic nature. Albert Einstein famously called quantum entanglement, a spooky action at a distance.


Conclusion


My theory posits that the Holy Spirit (i.e., the Restrainer), does so by acting through the Church's global influence as salt and light for the past two millennia. As such, He not only restrains widespread evil but also curbs humanity's technological advancements. This is why for four thousand years, man was limited to the speed of horse, and in just the past 124 years, mankind has mastered flight, sent men and rockets into space, and is now capable of exploring the quantum realm.


However, this Quantum Revolution will not come until after the Rapture occurs. But when it does, it will quickly revolutionize all political, economic, religious, and militaristic applications on the planet. Considering that major geopolitical changes will come about in the aftermath of the Rapture, one plausible theory is that:


  1. The Rapture will decimate the United States, causing its economic and geopolitical downfall

  2. The nations less impacted by the Rapture will race to fill the void left by the US

  3. The nations will realign into ten regional alliances, headed either by ten unelected technocrats, or ten political/military leaders

  4. The quantum system, by which (depending on the state of the world's markets then) could potentially be run by ten quantum systems networked together.

  5. The demonic world will deceive the world by possessing this system, making them think the Singularity has occurred and the godlike Artificial Intelligence has arrived


Consequently, the quantum realm will emerge as the dominant operating system for the ultimate human empire on Earth, the ten-tiered kingdom of the beast. Our inability at present to regulate AI effectively at both the corporate and state levels will only exacerbate the issue when it is combined with the powerful capabilities of a demonically supercharged Quantum network.


The world’s failure to rein in the demon of AI—or rather, the crude technologies masquerading as such—should serve to be a profound warning. There is an even more powerful emerging technology with the potential to wreak havoc, especially if it is combined with AI: quantum computing. We urgently need to understand this technology’s potential impact, regulate it, and prevent it from getting into the wrong hands before it is too late. The world must not repeat the mistakes it made by refusing to regulate AI.


Although still in its infancy, quantum computing operates on a very different basis from today’s semiconductor-based computers. If the various projects being pursued around the world succeed, these machines will be immensely powerful, performing tasks in seconds that would take conventional computers millions of years to conduct...Because of the technology’s immense power and revolutionary applications, quantum computing projects are likely part of defense and other government research already. (Source)


So if this seems all so inevitable (i.e., the Restrainer), then what is physically preventing it from happening now in the present? Why has this technology plateaued so to speak? First, it is the limitation of the availability of qubits (or quantum bits that are required to run quantum systems) is a hindrance. Quibits are finite and don't last once used. Here are some issues (thankfully) with qubits in the present:


  • Decoherence and Noise: Qubits are very sensitive to their surroundings, leading to errors and limiting how long they can process information.

  • Error Rates: Qubits make more mistakes than classical bits. Fixing these mistakes is hard and needs more qubits, making things more complex.

  • Scalability: Adding more qubits for stronger calculations makes it harder to keep everything working together correctly and increases errors.

  • Control and Readout: As you increase the number of qubits, it gets tougher to accurately manage and measure their states without messing up.

  • Temperature Requirements: Many quantum computers need to be super cold (near absolute zero) to work right, which is difficult and uses a lot of energy.


Hypothetically, dividing the world into ten regions and assigning a quantum system to each could be tailored to regional data processing needs while maintaining a global network, and enhancing governance, economic policies, and surveillance. These quantum systems would allow for efficient management of security databases, economic simulations, resource distribution, and atmospheric monitoring. The feasibility of this network depends on advancements in quantum algorithms, secure networking to protect data, and international data sharing and privacy protocols.


If AI could be powered by a new generation of computing power—quantum processing—then it would leave today’s innovation in the dust. That day may be coming sooner than you think. It may not be next year, but could we see practical applications within the next decade? Quantum computing, an entirely new way of processing information, when combined with AI, has the potential, without exaggeration, to bring about a new computing revolution. Transformation may be an understatement. (Source)


While theoretically possible today, and almost certainly inevitable after the Rapture, implementing such a global quantum network requires significant progress in technology, cybersecurity, and global cooperation. This is why the concept that the Rapture of the Church facilitates such a condition by removing the spiritual constraints, seems to make this scenario more when, not if given the promise of power it will present to whichever government wields it.


Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?Revelation 13:1-4

Hi Pete, was watching your weekly podcast again, a lot of fun I might add --and was looking at Nvidia and their contributions to quantum computing. They are doing a lot of work on Quantum Processing Units (QPU's). That temperature problem of having the processing unit near absolute zero might not be an issue in the very near future, if it's not already. https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/what-is-a-qpu/ they are now using photons, among other techniques, to form cubits. This is talked about about halfway down the nvidia article link discussing QPU's.. and while I was reading about their CUDA-Q system. What fascinates me the most about this technology is the potential to create nearly unbreakable encryption methods...The antichrist will have all the comp…

I agree that all this is heading towards an almost inescapable hell during the the tribulation. This beast system is a satanic, fake alternative life form!


Carbon is God’s chosen “back bone of life”. It builds up, breaks down and starts anew in the regenerative process called “the cycle of life”. The next element down in the Carbon family of the periodic table is non other than Silicon. It’s unique properties have allowed the development and advancement of digital computing.

Like clay, it can be formed into a shape that can stay there permanently. Information is accumulated, processed, retained and easily recalled. This affords Satan the means to to be “like God” especially once applied to all this ongoing technology.…

I went to bed last night angry at the internet again because the last 2/3 of my comments didn’t post! Here are two questions I posed:


  1. Why does Satan and his minions wage war against Carbon? An element? Are you kidding me?

  2. Could the 10 iron toes mixed with miry clay from Daniel 2:43 be any reference to the might of worldly powers being married to digital AI control? I wonder…
