Lamenting or Learning?

The future is written in the Wind*...

Our future is indelibly written in the pages of Holy Scripture. Although leaders are appointed by God, they make their decisions based upon intrigue and vain imaginations, on technological assumptions, to posture their organizations to leverage opportunities for advantage.

Are you ready for the future?

What is known about our near future? 

If you are curious about what lays ahead study the Eichah, the Book of Lamentations, add a sprinkling of technological special effects and there you discover the raw truth.  Tears stream down your face for what once was; suffering and harsh toil are your lot; our leaders have not strength (backbone); days of affliction and sorrow; trading your treasuries for food to keep alive; desolation and constant misery; He set a proclaimed time to crush;  my children have become forlorn; outside the sword bereaved while inside is death-like; moaning and mourning; souls ebbing away; silence; prophecies to you oracles of vanity and deception; hissing and gnashing of teeth; women eating their offspring; unrelieved darkness; worn away of flesh and breaking of bones; desolation; laughing stock and mockery; bitterness and wormwood; sacred stones scattered on every corner; the extravagant lay destitute; pursuers swifter than eagles; mortal danger; no respect...

Of what shall a living man complain?  A strong man for his sins.  Let us search and examine our ways and return to God....Bring us back to you, God, and we shall return, renew our days as of old.  Lamentations

The domains of the spiritual realm, air, land, sea. space, cyber, reality, matter, and inter-dimensions are being contested with ubiquitous sensors weaponizing our world for the final battles against God and His creation.   Their proliferation of precision with which the "new age" operates; skyrocketing lethality due to high kinetic energy weapons and advanced munitions that are enabled by autonomy, robotics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) increasing seeking the strategic advantage potential for a stronger, better armed, and more skillful position against their adversary.  As I pen this, you see a flow of black words sharply contrasting a background of white but what does it really mean?  The beast system does not only demand compliance, it wants you to engage with it, and finally, to worship it

“Control leads to compliance; autonomy leads to engagement.” – Daniel H. Pink

But understand this that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.  II Timothy 3:1-5

Alas-she sits in solitude!  Lamentations 1:1

When you take the Bible seriously you are prepare some incredible supernatural days, but have you prepared for the world that the futurists have forged out for us?  Our world is catapulting into a time where we will experience physical and electronic isolation.  Many of you are already experiencing the impact of being isolated from family, friends, and spiritual connection. 

When you have a relationship with Jesus, be ready to go it alone with only Jesus at your side.  Isolation is not as easy as you might believe.  Thankfully, Jesus surrounds you and insulates you from this wicked world, and for that you can be most grateful.

Making the Visible Invisible

Your preparations might include some camouflage although times have changed and concealment is difficult on the future battlefield and also played a prominent role throughout biblical history:

Do not be afraid,” Elisha answered, “for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw that the hills were full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.  As the Arameans came down against him, Elisha prayed to the LORD, “Please strike these people with blindness.” So He struck them with blindness, according to the word of Elisha.… II Kings 6:17

It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them.  He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword.  When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread.  After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.

So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.

The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance. Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. “Quick, get up!” he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists.

Then the angel said to him, “Put on your clothes and sandals.” And Peter did so. “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me,” the angel told him.  Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision. They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went through it. When they had walked the length of one street, suddenly the angel left him.  Acts 12

You will need to hide from advanced sensors which are collecting a myriad of data and sending it back to the controllers. The camouflage needed for these days and times requires the Living God to make you invisible, and in the material realms, dramatic reduction of heat, electromagnetic, and optical signatures. Traditional hider techniques such as camouflage, deception, and concealment will have to extend to cross-domain obscuration including cyber domain and the electromagnetic spectrum.  Here are some "How To" ideas:

  • Communicate with only certain elements
  • Coordinate to turn on your communication systems at an allocated window time
  • Develop brevity codes for routine communication traffic.
  • Train to operate at night under night-vision devices (NVDs).
  • Train to utilize different movement techniques and formations over wide areas
  • Link up at night.
  • Train to employ electronic mortars for their obscuration effects.
  • Train to engage targets that are obscured by friendly obscurants.
  • Leave cell phones at home and rely on your real network for intel
  • Learn how to replicate an electronic attack or cyber attack.
  • Practice futuristic obscuration exercises or at minimum learn what is arrayed against you
  • Invest in obscuration equipment such as personal protection and cloaking devices

Understand that with LEO satellites and drones in play that you will need to monitor your own emissions in real-time to understand and mitigate your vulnerabilities in the battle of signatures.

You may also choose or have the option to hide in the open within complex terrain clutter.  Just as with the security of older vehicles against an EMF attack, complex terrains can offer you electronic dead spots where surveillance is either unreliable or blocked.

Always be vigilant that you might need to relocate to outwit recon and strike targeting cycles.  Exploit complex terrains, seizing fleeting windows of opportunity, provided by rapidly changing infrastructure, subcultures, and places.  You want your situational awareness keen to make use of future possibilities.

Even dense urban areas provide a complex terrain providing invisibility to you in part because they provide concrete canyons isolating you from electronic and physical harm.  Dense urban areas increase the rate of false signatures (AI, sensors, and others propagate massive amounts of false signatures), cause confusion that undermines decision-makers capabilities. To succeed in this environment you need to be disconnected from electronic and possibly even physical contacts and resources

Just as in biblical times, even using similar iconography one must, "be able to slew and elevate rapidly to engage vertical targets".

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armor of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints... Ephesians 6:10-18

When you truly examine life it has always included regular and irregular forces, criminal elements, and demonic forces attacking your weaknesses minimizing our advantages.  At times it came seem dismal, but this is when we should utilize our armor and fight back with the sounds of praise to our God upon our lips for lifting up sounds of praise and victory knock down even the most formidable foes, even the walls of Jericho.

Consider that your life is being woven into a tapestry of peace, daily pursuits, criminality, violence, upheavals, civil wars, cultural wars, and unlimited warfare we are assured that God is the Divine Artist and that He is carefully weaving these events and situations so that you will know that He is God and that your testimony of Him will go forth to others.

Battling the Super Empowered

Source:  futures.armyscitech

Then David reached into his bag, took out a stone and slung it, striking the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground. Thus David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.  David ran and stood over him. He grabbed the Philistine’s sword and pulled it from its sheath. And having killed him, he cut off his head with the sword. When the Philistines saw that their hero was dead, they turned and ran.…I Samuel 17:50

Mankind has always had to confront and battle super-empowered individuals. Throughout biblical times many of these super empowered individuals manifested evil.  Today we face these same super powered individuals, many bearing full manifestation of evil and multi domain capabilities such as now having access to Weapons of Mass Effect (WME), cyber, space, and Nuclear/Biological/ Chemical (NBC) capabilities.

It is all out war in the heavenlies, upon the face of the earth, and the firmament in between.  Increasingly we will see a cascade between domains, watch for this.  These are the Wars of the Soul, for your cognition (brain), beliefs, and values.  Our atmosphere will bombarded with information warfare.

Military strategists define a super empowered individuals as:

- is autonomously capable of creating a cascading event, [...] a 'system perturbation'; a disruption of system function and invalidation of existing rule sets to at least the national but more likely the global scale. The key requirements to become 'super-empowered' are comprehension of a complex system's connectivity and operation; access to critical network hubs; possession of a force that can be leveraged against the structure of the system and a willingness to use it.

The biblical narratives regarding the rephaim or giants provide you with fascinating data to fire up your imagination about how you might defend yourself from a return of the giants of old.  Young (King) David illustrates how we can overcome a giant with our simple faith, a stone, and a slingshot. 

The Nephilim mentioned twice in Numbers:13:33.  The first time that they are mentioned, in the Hebrew, the nephilim, נְפִילִים, are spelled in full.  The second time the first yud is removed making it נְפִלִים this can indicate several things to you.  The nephilim comes from the Hebrew root to fall meaning they fell from heaven that eventually brought the world to destruction.  When the nephilim are introduced they are spelled defectively without the yud, indicating inferiority.  After the hybridization between fallen angels/demons and mankind, the descendants of the race of giants are referred to with the full spelling.  As we read about the race of giants such as Og and Sihon who were kings of Bashan and the Amorite, it is with the full spelling indicating they became mighty rulers.  The shortened nephilim refers to the original inferior nephilim who lowered their station from the heavenly realm.

We can learn from the Hebrew spelling that while the nephilim had sophisticated technologies they had a set back due to their fallen position creating vulnerabilities and possibly inherent due to their domain change.  Once the rephaim and their giant offspring came into being, their tainted genetic line rebounded, and their power surged beyond to that well beyond their fallen fathers.  They are truly a force to be reckoned with as they were a hybrid merger between the angelic host and man. 

And if Satan is divided and rises against himself, he cannot stand; his end has come. Indeed, no one can enter a strong man's house to steal his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder his house.  Truly I tell you, the sons of men will be forgiven all sins and blasphemies, as many as they utter.  Mark 3:27 (emphasis mine)

Oftentimes, the rephaim of old, using ancient technologies, built great fortified cities which still remain until this day.  We can learn that truly strong people do not need elaborate fortifications.  Complex fortifications indicate to use weakness. We need to search out these weaknesses instead of letting our fears and insecurities dictate our actions.  Our actions are also an barometer if you will of our faith that God is control.  It is His Name at stake when we take action and when we fail.  

In spite of what our circumstances appear to be it is critical that we give a good report regarding our provision from God.  Recalling the devastation caused by the spies searching our the Land flowing with milk and honey provided by God.  It really should be irrelevant to us if we encounter giants, for God will deal with them.

Warring at the Speed of God

For the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said: “By repentance and rest you would be saved; your strength would lie in quiet confidence—but you were not willing.” “No,” you say, “we will flee on horses.” Therefore you will flee! “We will ride swift horses,” but your pursuers will be faster.  A thousand will take flight at the threat of one, at the threat of five you will flee, until you are left alone like a lone pole on a mountaintop, like a banner on a hill.…  Isaiah 30:16

You are noticing that everything appears to be speeding up.  While this was always true, it is particularly evident today.  There is a wearing down process underway as the speed of human interaction, events and actions are democratized with rapidly proliferating capabilities creating a synergistic technological colosseum of competitors battling for dominance. 

While it is tempting to keep moving faster and faster to keep up with the incremental autonomous systems this is in fact a snare to your soul and to your body.  If you pursue this road you will gradually loose your humanity as you try to keep up AI, which is part of the plan.  You become so ensnared with being busy that you cannot free yourself from the tangled web.  Upon pondering this dilemma, I discovered that when we try to keep up the fast pace we are often doing it in our own strength.  We are not allowing God to war for us, and after all, the battle belongs to the Lord.

The world stage is being set with AI, Robotics, Recon, Strike Capability, Sensor Functionality, Shooters, Connections, Targeting, and Driving Decisions in a contest where integrated better decision-making is a distinct advantage.    Scripture says:

After them another king, different from the earlier ones, will rise and subdue three kings. He will speak out against the Most High and oppress the saints of the Most High, intending to change the set times and laws, and the saints will be given into his hand for a time, and times, and half a time.  But the court will convene, and his dominion will be taken away and completely destroyed forever.  Daniel 7:25

Take time to enjoy the last vestiges of the world that God created:  your family, the great outdoors, delicious and nutritious foods, your amazing body that design specifically for you, and times of peace, quiet and sweet fellowship with your Creator.

Those who seek shelter in the Most High know that biblical decision making utilizing Holy Scripture to its full potential are the best prepared to face the future that we have entered.

 Disconnect from the Network

"Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE," says the Lord. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you.  II Corinthians 6:17

When the power goes out or you are in an electronic dead spot instantly your body responds with a wash of overwhelming peace and tranquility. Sure, there is the, "When is it going to come back on?"  You need to learn to live and operated disconnected from the network.  Future battlefields will include electronic warfare (EW) disrupting your network connections.  Possibly you have noticing increasing time of network interruptions, this is only the beginning, my friend. 

Signature of the Adversary

I will overturn royal thrones and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations. I will overturn chariots and their riders; horses and their riders will fall, each by the sword of his brother. On that day, declares the LORD of Hosts, I will take you, My servant, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, declares the LORD, and I will make you like My signet ring, for I have chosen you, declares of the LORD of Hosts.”  Haggai 2:23

God  has always had His signature.  You can find it throughout the pages of Scripture.  Satan, the imitator, imitates God's seal with signet which will eventually be a mark spoken of in Revelation 13 required for all people to show their allowance and loyalty, a banner of sorts. 

In the final battles of the Day of the Lord, formations of allegiance are being formed, although humanity is trying its utmost to reduce our publicly available allegiance. Remember, you are God's signet.

Satan's mark may offer you some fleeting advantage but the unseen, supernatural, multi-directional darts of fire will decimate your mission control center, your soul.  Holy God will target and neutralize those taking the mark to eternal damnation.  Mark my words, we are precariously close to this time.

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.  Isaiah 54:17

There is allot of chatter in military circles about overmatch which means to be a superior opponent.  The military believes that it can achieve a Goliath-type position through technological innovations, rapidly integrating prototypes, open and modular architectures, and autonomous and AI enablers.  Man quickly merging with machine, denigrating his co-creator position with God into a co-evolutionary process with demonic forces.  Falling into deception they falsely believe that this will freeze the military to the overmatch.  The true reason our military was great for so a period was our allegiance and faithfulness to  צבאות, Adonai Tzav'ot, Lord of Armies (both celestial and terrestrial).

Gray War Strategy

One last thought on battle tactics is that Satan never plays fair.  Currently, we are experiencing rapid fire short of direct conflict intended to overwhelm our capabilities because many of us fail to use of our shields. This fiery darts of wickedness will dramatically increase in the days to come.  Evil has a propensity to operate in the gray zone; neither hot nor cold wars, neither sweet not sour, always lukewarm.  Do not be tempted to play the gray.  It is not favorable for your eternal future.

 I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other. So because you are lukewarm--neither hot nor cold--I am about to spit you out of My mouth!  You say, ‘I am rich; I have grown wealthy and need nothing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.…  Revelation 3:16-17

As we futility attempt to throw of the yoke of God and our humanity we would be wise to consider Psalm 2:

 “Let us break Their chains and cast away Their cords.” The One enthroned in the heavens laughs; the Lord taunts them.
Then He rebukes them in His anger, and terrifies them in His fury.  Psalm 2: 4-5

*The future is indeed written in the Wind, or Ruach, in the Hebrew.  That same breath of God imparts life into your body and the same brooding breath that hovered over the deep waters in the beginning and as a mother eagle flutters over her young.
