But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
Night Watchman Note;
The ‘Oldest’ Lie in Satan’s Book of Lies; The ‘Promise’ of Transhumanism (that we can be ‘live’ or be as Gods forever, an eternal life, in a ‘mortal and fallen state’ apart from Christ.) And Eve took a ‘bit out of the apple,’ believing the lie of serpent that she could live and be as a ‘god’ forever.
Genesis 2:16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Genesis 3 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: (Satan’s LIE)
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. (Satan’s LIE)
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
(Naked = sinned, disobeyed, didn’t take God seriously, didn’t follow the ‘instructions’ or ‘didn’t take God at His word.’ Adam knew he ‘screwed up’ BIG TIME, but didn’t realize that his mistake caused ALL of mankind to live in a ‘fallen / sinful’ state ever since. Hence, the need for Jesus Christ’s salvation to ‘fix things and get things right’ between man and God. Adam tried to ‘cover-up’ the fact that he sinned, so he blamed the woman. And the woman in turn blamed the serpent. And in turn, God ‘displaced’ Adam and Eve and the Serpent out of the Garden of Eden. )
‘One bad, rotten apple spoiled the barrel of humanity.’
Transhumanists take science as their religion and believe in a philosophy of “absolute relativism” that claims that individuals can change reality at will, and they seek to “relativize the human being” and “turn it into a putty that can be modified or molded to our taste and our desire and by rejecting those limits nature or God have placed on us.”
Transhumanism therefore requires “the destruction of “the Judeo-Christian morality, which is based on absolute principles and values.”
Ultimate end: redefining and reconfiguring the human nature and condition. A fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines among the physical, digital and biological spheres.
Those technologies include genetic engineering such as CRISPR genetic editing, artificial intelligence (A.I.), the Internet of Things (IoT), digital avatars, and quantum computing.
Transhumanists propose to use technology to alter human nature to produce human beings with “super longevity, super intelligence, super well-being,” Lukacs said.
They reject the Christian belief in absolute truth, and that God created human person in His image and likeness, and see absolute values as “a brake for their pretensions of transhumanist and globalist progressivism.” (‘Lost Imager Status,’ ‘Eternal Damnation for taking the ‘Mark, Number or Name,’ ‘And they became vain in their imaginations.’)
Transhumanists propose to increase longevity by using CRISPR genetic editing.
Zuckerberg aims to transform Facebook from a social media platform into a ‘metaverse’ monopoly & we should all be very worried. Q; ‘How will the Beast spy on you in the ‘Metaverse’?
Norman Lewis RT27 Oct, 2021 19:40
Facebook sees the growing market for digital clothes, tools, and experiences online as the solution to one of its biggest threats: its declining appeal to kids. But the power it could wield in this metaverse is truly frightening.
It is not often that a company like Facebook, which reported revenue growth of 35% to $29 billion in the three months ending in September, with profits rising 17% to $9.2 billion, can be said to be in trouble. But Facebook is in trouble.
During this week’s earnings call with CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook announced its longer-term goal was to invest heavily in its Reality Labs (FRL), developing technologies like virtual and augmented reality. The plan, it was explained, will enable Facebook to become a significant player in and creator of the so-called metaverse – a future online world of immersive, virtual and shared spaces.
As Zuckerberg puts it, the goal is to transform Facebook from a social media platform into a hub of a new “massive creative economy.” As a signal of how serious he is about this, he told the market that not only will this dent total operating profit by around $10 billion this year, but will do so for years to come as it builds out the infrastructure to realise its vision. To this end, the company will break out its FRL segment into a different reporting unit on its quarterly earnings statements. That segment will be separate from the rest of the company’s so-called “Family of Apps” — Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger and Facebook proper.
This is not a pipedream. Nor is it solely driven by the fact that the Covid pandemic forced millions of people to live more of their lives digitally, which resulted in considerable growth of virtual reality headsets led by Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2. It is a vision Zuckerberg has held for many years. And it is shared by many Big Tech companies and visionaries.
The metaverse is what Facebook sees as the ultimate form of social connection for its 3.5 billion users. This is a mixed-reality future we might not yet recognise. But Zuckerberg is convinced his vision is the future. As he put it, “Technology that gives you this sense of presence is like the holy grail of social experiences, and what I think a company like ours was designed to do over time.” He added, “My hope is that over the coming years, people really start to think of us not primarily as a social media company, but as a ‘metaverse’ company that’s providing a real sense of presence.”
We might quibble about this vision of the future. But two things suggest that it is very real. The first, mentioned above, is Facebook’s commitment to fund investing, even though it will eat into its profits for many years. Given the company’s rapacious drive for profits, this is an indication of seriousness.
The second is that Facebook has no alternative but to change direction.
An internal Instagram document obtained by The New York Times reveals the growing concern that it is losing young users. As the strategy memo notes, “If we lose the teen foothold in the US we lose the pipeline.” As Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, notes, losing the pipeline is not just about numbers. The online space is where “young people define themselves and the future,” adding that “young people and creators are at the forefront of emerging culture.” In short, if Facebook is not part of that journey or has no skin in the longer-term game, it is truly lost. It knows this, as do its competitors.
The move towards a ‘metaverse’ by Facebook is an attempt to capture young users and be part of how future generations will define and shape themselves. It is a threat and an opportunity that cannot be ignored.
Whether Facebook can accomplish this remains to be seen. But, given the fact that the company’s real success was driven by social changes unrelated to digital technologies – like the need for young people to escape from adult supervision, which was the unintended outcome of the rise of risk culture – a similar cultural non-technological imperative can drive the realisation of the ‘metaverse.’
One only has to think about the desire for safety. Link this to identity politics and the demand for safe spaces, upon the right to simply change biological reality without any contestation. One can see how fertile the grounds are for the creation of ‘protective’ immersive online environments. If you think Facebook’s power is great now its power over the future and what will become the new public space will be a billion times greater. You have been warned.

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
