The world we live in today in 2023 is not the world we lived in 2019. Things morally and spiritually have changed in society far more than anticipated. We know that DECEPTION is one of THE weapons Satan will use in the world. We see tons of misinformation, false images, misinterpretations of scripture, and false Christian messages by political leaders and social media influencers.
Jesus was clear in Mathew 24 about what we need to be aware of:
This is not something you will escape, some people on this earth already experience many of these things, especially describe in verses 4 to 8. Many folks in the US, UK, Canada, and large parts of Europe still live fairly safe lives. Driving electric cars, sipping star bucks coffee, ordering takeaway, and watching Netflix. Many of them fall for the deceit while sipping the cream of their star bucks. Listen it’s your job as a Christian believer to make sure you understand and read your Bible. DO NOT talk out of others’ mouths and take it as Biblical truth.
Mathew 24 – The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age
3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
A hand full of tips Christians should consider:
- Deepen Your Understanding of the Bible: Engage with the Word of God more profoundly. This goes beyond mere prayer; it involves an in-depth exploration of the Bible. Participate in Bible study groups, use online resources, or work with spiritual mentors to enhance your understanding of the Scriptures. It’s crucial to ensure your understanding of faith is grounded in biblical teachings.
- Discern True from False Prophecies: In a world where predictions about the end times abound, it’s crucial to stay grounded in the Bible. Avoid getting swayed by end-of-times theories that aren’t rooted in the Scriptures. The Bible cautions us against false prophets and emphasises that only God knows the time of the end (Matthew 24:36).
- Focus on the Bible’s Teachings: Be discerning about what you accept as truth. If it isn’t biblical and you can’t find its roots in the Bible, it’s best to set it aside. Although it’s important to respect other belief systems, your commitment should be to the teachings of the Bible.
- Embrace Technology for the Faith: Harness the power of technology for spreading the Gospel and doing God’s work.
- Embrace Technology for the Faith: Harness the power of technology for spreading the Gospel and doing God’s work.
- Cybersecurity, Ethical Hacking, and OSINT: The digital world needs good shepherds. Equip yourself with knowledge of cybersecurity to protect churches, businesses, and individuals from cyber threats. Ethical hacking can help identify and patch vulnerabilities before they can be exploited, while Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) can aid in gathering useful information from publicly available sources.
- Combatting Digital Deception: The internet, while a powerful tool, can also be a breeding ground for misinformation and deceit. This can be seen as a modern manifestation of the “false prophets” the Bible warns us about. Use your understanding of technology to discern truth from falsehood online, to combat the spread of misinformation, and to ensure that the biblical teachings being shared are accurate and faithful to the scriptures.
- AI for Biblical Knowledge: Artificial Intelligence can be a powerful tool for religious studies and evangelism. Create AI modules that assist in Bible study by providing translations, commentaries, and cross-references. AI can also be used to develop chatbots that answer queries about the Bible and Christian doctrine, or to analyse large data sets to understand and address common questions or misconceptions about Christianity.
- Community Involvement and Outreach: Encourage Christians to actively participate in their local communities. This could involve volunteering, participating in local events, or finding ways to serve others in need. Such actions not only reflect Christian values but also provide opportunities to share the Gospel.
- Continual Learning and Personal Growth: Encourage continuous learning about Christianity and personal growth in faith. This can include reading Christian literature, attending seminars and workshops, and engaging in regular self-reflection and prayer.
Remember, whatever tools or skills you use, keep your work rooted in love, faith, and the teachings of Jesus. As Proverbs 16:3 says, ” Commit your works to the Lord, And your thoughts will be established. ”
AI The Next So Called Evil
I see people go on about the Evil of AI, It’s the end of the world, and it’s demonic. The list is endless. Now we once again see debate to bring in regulations. As a Christian, you should know right from wrong, as if you know that you are a truly reborn Christian, that the Holy Spirit will lead you and if you do wrong you will repent your wrongdoings. My personal problem is I see the church’s giving it all over to Satan and they don’t even see it. They make people scared and now we see talks of regulation to come out to “protect the people” for AI. Do it instead of laying your Trust at the feet of Jesus and asking how we can use this technology to win Souls for Jesus, we want to regulate and get Government to pass it back into the hands of big tech giants. Who uses tech to make a profit to please their shareholder. As a Christian don’t make trust in your own ability number 1 but use the Holy Spirit to help you put trust in God. You can use AI and tech tools, pray, and ask how you can use AI, Automation, and coding to help the works of God.
Most of you have been using to train AI for more than a decade for free. You are happy to train it and criticize the evil of it instead of using it to fill the oil in your lamps and let your lights shine. Starbucks coffee can make you fat and lazy, and I see plenty of Christian hypocrites.

The Bible is clear about what will happen in the later days as the deception of Satan is getting stronger. He is the enemy, not your human flesh and blood brother or sister. Misinformation and interpretations, because people have no idea what the Bible says, will cause many to grow cold. It is clear in:
1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.Bible
