And so this question he’s asking is the image of the beast future general AI system based on Rome’s moral code.
And there’s definitely a lot of media in, videos and content going around suggesting this. So it’s a good question.
Explain a little bit what this means, what this question is saying for people who don’t know what AI is.
Yeah. I was going to say you probably define AI better than I can.
All right. So I think there’s a lot of people who are worried that the beast and all this is really some computer system that’s going to control things, I guess sort of like Skynet from Terminator Series or something. And then we’ll have barcodes that then will Mark whether we’re working with this AI system or not. I can’t say I fully understand it, but that’s the general gist of what I’ve heard.
So is that biblical, Tina?
Yeah, I wouldn’t say. Okay, so here’s the thing. The Mark of the beast is basically if you go to Revelation 13, it says that there’s going to be a Mark that is going to be put in your hand or in your forehead. And those who don’t receive the Mark, they won’t be able to buy or sell. So obviously, this is something very it could have a threat to your livelihood. It could have a threat to your ability to buy necessities. So basically, you need to make sure that your trust is in God, more than trust in what is going on in the world. So could there be computer systems or technology used in enforcing this? Possibly. But I don’t think that’s really what the Mark of the beast is about. The Mark of the beast is something more about worship. That’s really what it comes down to. And when it comes to a Mark, I don’t necessarily think that this is a physical or literal Mark. I mean, there could be something to do with it. But a Mark in your forehead, just like if you read Revelation 13, it talks about the Mark of the beast.
And so what I truly believe is that the Mark of the beast is a counterfeit to what the true seal of God is, because if you go to the next chapter, Revelation, chapter 14, verse one, you see God’s people in the last days. And if you want to pull that up, Revelation 14, verse one.
It says, I looked and Lo a lamb stood on the Mount Sinai and with him 144,000, having his father’s name written in their foreheads.
Exactly. So the father’s name, basically God’s character. Remember when Moses said, Tell me, let your glory pass before me. And God says, I will declare my name to you, the Lord. The Lord. God merciful and abundant mercy basically describes his character. So these people, God’s people in the last days, will have the character of God in their forehead. Now, the Mark of the beast, in contrast, is in the forehead or in the hands of these people. So basically they’re going to have a counterfeit to basically the seal of God, which is having a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof. Worshipping the beast. So they’re worshiping but they’re not worshiping the true God because they’re doing something that’s false. There’s some sort of false doctrine going on and so to me I see it more. Again, we’ve said before it’s a false system of worship. And if you’re going to ask me exactly what that is, it goes contrary to the law of God because God’s law is a reflection of his character. So anything that basically goes against God’s law, his ten Commandments is going to be basically what has more to do with the Mark of the beast in that being basically what it is not so much a physical piece of technology like they’re going to implant something in your technology that’s spying on you or you know what I mean?
Saying something more like that. I remember people thought it’s a barcode, it’s a computer chip. Now people are saying, what’s a vaccine? And that doesn’t have much merit. These physical things that kind of come up in technology that people get scared of. That’s really not the heart of the matter. The heart of the matter is again, Revelation, chapter 14. These people have the seal of God in their forehead. You go down to verse twelve. It says, here is the patience of the Saints. Here are they that keep the Commandments of God and have the faith of Jesus. So these are people who keep God’s commandment. That’s why they don’t get the Mark of the beast and they have the faith of Jesus. So not just that they’re legalistic trying to keep God’s word or keep his law, but rather that they had the faith of Jesus, not in Jesus of Jesus. The same faith that Jesus held while he was on this Earth which was perfect faith and trust in his father. So honestly, I wouldn’t worry so much about AI and all these technologies and things going on in the world. Your focus really needs to just be on God, on his truth.
