ARE QUANTUM COMPUTERS GOING TO BE MODERN DIVINATION MACHINES? In the days that Jesus walked the earth, sorcery and divination were very common spiritual practices. Demonic forces led by the spirit of antichrist were met with people eager to harness their powers. But as the uniquely begotten Son of God, Jesus was able to put these spiritual abominations in check, and overpower them with the resurrection, and the coming of the Holy Spirit.
Since the days of Pentecost, the spreading of the Gospel message of Jesus Christ for the salvation of souls has been the main focus and mission for the church. In the Olivet discourse, Jesus prophesied, “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come…” (Mt. 24:14). For two millennia, the church has been on the front lines, fulfilling this great commission.
But as we march further into the 21st century, it appears that not only are the technologies that can truly fulfill Matthew 24:14 now available, but that same tech is what might fulfill the mark/image prophecy mentioned in the Book of Revelation.
The rapid rise of computers, AI, nanotech, biotech, smart-everything tech, blockchain, and countless other fields of science, have essentially promised the very things God promised us. These include health and wellness to the point of eternal life (or at least the ability to live for as long as you choose), living in a paradise or edenic world (virtual worlds only limited by your imagination), and the promise of divinity (apotheosis). But something very profound is happening on the cutting edges of science, especially in the realm of quantum computing, that gives away the reality of the situation.
For example, the circuitry being configured for one quantum computing project, are using a pattern that is precisely the same as the ancient practice of geomancy. Interestingly, it appears Jesus may have even had knowledge of the practice, using it against the sorcerers of the time in a story in the New Testament that you’re probably familiar with. While such concepts might sound ridiculous at first, it certainly has explanatory power to help us understand not only weird places in Scripture, but what’s happening in our world today. In fact, it seems to tie directly into the insanity that has come by way of social media platforms, our rapidly forming digital economy, and the highly divisive culture.
In this episode, we explore these ideas and much more with our returning guest, Anthony Patch!
