Book of Revelation

Do we know what the apocalypse will be like?

Do we know what the Apocalypse will be like? (It’s not COVID-19)

Do we know what the apocalypse will be like?  According to something I just read, apparently we don’t have a clue.  For all the disaster, end-of-the-world, apocalyptic movies that are out there, we just don’t know.  Not even close.  And there’s a reason for that.  Hang in there – I’ll tell you shortly.

But for now, here’s what brought up the question today.  There was this article on msn.com titled These States May Face ‘Apocalyptic’ COVID-19, Says Virologist.  Sure, they put Apocalyptic in quotes.  It’s not really the end of the world.  Yet.  As far as we know.  Or as far as what we can gather from the Bible.  The preconditions for it just haven’t been met.

This is what happens when you don’t believe in God

Without recognizing that we are special because we have the breath of life from God – I supposed there’s a lot to be afraid of.   Thinking that machines will self-actualize, like HAL in 2001 A Space Odyssey, could lead one to be afraid of AI.  Knowing that it takes the breath of God to make us what we are, leads one to not be afraid of AI.  No matter how smart we may think we are – we don’t have, and never will have, the ability to give anything the breath of life from God. No.  It’s not AI that we need to be afraid of. …

God versus religion – why

Sometimes we can know for sure that followers of God don’t all hear from Him – like when two sets of people who know for sure they “know God’s voice” are saying two very different things. Both insist they are right about whose voice they hear – and what that voice is saying. Neither will say the other is wrong. Both just insist they are “right”.

Parables and Hype Cycles (Part 4)

And so now we’re ready for Revelation. And finding out what happens to the “seeds” that fell in all four areas – which of course is a way to describe everyone who is – has been – and will be on the face of this earth. God has offered salvation to all of us – but only those who successfully make it through the hype cycle – who achieve a relationship with our Savior, Jesus – are guaranteed that salvation.

Revelation, Jesus and Hype Cycles (Part 3)

As you read through these, if you’re already a Christian – think about your own experiences, like with reading the Bible and what you’ve expected after that. You’ll probably see yourself as having gone through these very feelings.
If you’re not a Christian – this will give you an idea of what to expect, and let you know that if / when you feel discouraged or wondering about things as you move along – you’re not alone. It’s part of the process of getting to know / believe / follow Jesus.

Revelation, People and Hype Cycles (Part 2)

Revelation and Hype Cycles – Introduction

Anyway – back to the hype cycle. When you look at it from the human behavioral point of view – it makes sense that the hype cycle and Revelation would have so much in common. After all – while Gartner presumes to know people in the IT field very well – who knows more about all of us than the One who created us? (Answer: no one.)
