First, on Jan. 7, 2019, Pope Francis delivered his annual “State of the World” message to a group that included diplomats from many nations.
I don’t know, but perhaps the Pope’s “State of the World” message is supposed to be on political issues because that is all I could find.
In the two articles that I read, there were no quotes from the Bible and nothing about Jesus, the cross, redemption, sin or spiritual matters that I would expect from an important Church leader.
The pope’s main focus was on global warming, global government, global citizenship and things like that, but not God, salvation, etc.
According to one of the articles, Pope Francis said less national sovereignty and more multilateralism is the solution to most of the world’s problems.
I don’t know about others, but I expect the pope to know that the solution to most of the world’s problems is God, not less sovereignty of nations and more globalism.
False prophets and false teachers are two end-of-the-age signs, and wolves in sheep’s clothing can be recognized by their departure from the Scriptures.
Second, also on Jan. 7, 2019 (incidentally, this is the date the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates Christmas), the head of that group warned the world that high-tech groups are accumulating information on people in one location and that the information could be used to control people.
This important Church leader (the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia) pointed out that the Antichrist will gain control of the whole world, including the worldwide web, during the Tribulation Period, and he will control all of the information on people from one location.
The Antichrist and False Prophet will use that information to force people to take the Mark of the Beast, and those who take it won’t go to heaven.
In connection with the two messages mentioned above, know that there are false prophets and false teachers, but God does not leave His people without true prophets and true teachers.
It is interesting to put the messages that these two church leaders delivered on the same day beside each other and compare them to the Scriptures.
It is my honest opinion that the first message is unscriptural, ridiculous and pathetic.
It is also my honest opinion that the second message is Scriptural and profound.
Third, on Jan 9, 2019 (two days after the first two messages), an expert in artificial intelligence was interviewed on the 60 Minutes TV program, and he predicted that artificial intelligence (in this case, computer-controlled robots, machines, vehicles, etc.) will replace 40% of the world’s jobs in the next 15 years.
He predicted that artificial intelligence (AI) will change the world more than anything in history including electricity. (Of course, he is thinking about inventions, not Jesus.)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) will reduce the need for people.
Many people will be considered expendable (their lives will be considered a liability instead of an asset).
Those who read this and find it scary should know that God loves us.
His Word is true, and every jot and tittle of it will be fulfilled regardless of whether we are scared or not.
God promised that He wouldn’t do anything without revealing it to His prophets first, and He is doing that.
But God did not reveal these things to SCARE us.
God revealed these things to PREPARE us.
It is absolutely necessary that we are prepared before we die or before the Rapture takes place, and the only way to prepare is to put our faith in Jesus.
The prepared can rejoice over these things because we know they mean that many wonderful things are on the way.
