Technology and knowledge is on an exponential increase for the last 200 years. Also the devil loves to deceive and make whatever he is presenting look mightily attractive but the real costs are always hidden. With that said it is entirely possible that the mark of the beast system, might also be a trans-humanist technology that heals the body radiation biological exposure and stops a person from committing self harm. Just imagine the capabilities of a smartphone implanted and linked with the nervous system with microscopic machines that heal and restores the very DNA of a person. Also this same technology may extend lifespans and other goodies. Most people would do whatever than can to have such awesome convenient and practical technology. Just look at how people go nuts for smartphones.

I think the pain and suffering will be unbearable as men shall seek death as it would be at least better for the dead. This serves to warn us to change so that we escape from this terrible days.

So is this torment from God to punish the people or to convert them or what is the purpose? Obviously there are those that will not be harmed by the locust, but those that are harmed should accept Jesus? I 'm trying to understand the purpose of the suffering?


John Roberts's comment on 2014-05-22 22:14:42:

Yes...people in the spirit world will recognize their friends, family and associates because we remain the same people there that we were here. We don 't change. As for seeking death and not finding it indicates a plague that will be so miserable that people will wish for death, but it will not be fatal. Death will thus be elusive for those unwilling or unable to take their own lives. God will never rob people of their free agency, but few will have the ability to take their own lives, especially if they don 't think there is anything on the other side.


Mark Bowen's comment on 2014-03-07 08:34:29:

Revelation 9 5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them but that they should be tormented five months and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man In reference to Rev 9 6 It would appear that the plague of verse 5 on the ungodly will be so severe that they will attempt suicide to escape it But God will not allow them to die Thus giving them a small taste of the eternal torment that will be theirs in the Lake of Fire


Johnny Jones's comment on 2013-11-07 16:38:55:

The question came up at a bible study. Will we recognize our family and loved ones in heaven. I have heard that we will but cannot find reference to that. If anyone can help please respond to my e-mail. Thanks and God Bless

The science behind radical life extension, Live Long enough to live forever Ray Kurzwell and Terry Grossman M.D.. Jesus gave warning of the signs and wonders of the end time, it will be like the days before Noah went into the ark. Do not be afraid of the signs of the time, for these things have to do Satan's world, and the destruction of this wicked system of thing. Considering genetic engineering is nothing new, for it had existed when the Angels left their normal position to mate with humans. Look at the Genetically Modified Organisms: and how they are homogenizing all kinds of life forms together. In my e-mail I have received information that they can make the Manitou come to life. Using a Cow’s egg, putting human DNA in it, giving a charge of electric and the zygote grows.
Men will seek to die: look at the machinery that they are able to attach to the body. With the use of machines and electronics:
1. Now they can help the humans and other creatures to see.
2. They can give hearing to those who have no hearing.
3. They can replace the arms and legs with bionics.
4. They have nanotechnology.
5. They are able to take plants and manipulate the DNA and when the plant is mature in full leaf if you desire, words will appear on the leaves.
6. Those of the eugenicists crowd the so-called “new world order” one world government, they intend to use the electronics to keep themselves running forever, or so they think. Like the Frankenstein monster, they desire to become a cyborg.
Like the door on the ark, as we approach the final hours of Satan's world. There is still time for those humans to reflect, and look through the lens of the time continuum of government in human hands. Since the time Adam and Eve left the garden, and the millennium long passing, has proven their so-called new world order, to be nothing more than the same old rubbish that has been on this planet since Adam and Eve left the garden.

Thank God Christ died for our sins, delivering is from the day of his wrath. We can't die for sins that have been already died for.
