Technology is like fire. Of course, it is good and necessary as long as you have it under control. As with all forms of power, the risks must be weighed against the benefits. Harnessed correctly, fire can cook your food and heat your home; mismanaged it will burn your house down in the dread head of summer. Yesterday, mega-billionaire, Elon Musk, announced his Neuralink brain1 chip will begin human clinical trials in six months. Once implanted into the brain, the human mind will be able to interface instantly with all of the highest technology, enabling some with certain diseases to walk again, the blind to see, and deaf to hear.
The Devil Plays with Best Laid Plans
Sounds good, right? Oh, did we mention the chip’s ability to turn its victims into mindless robots by controlling, not only what they think, but also what they say, see, and hear. If you thought the surveillance ability of cellphones by secret government agencies; monitoring movement through GPS, accessing microphone, files, and camera was bad, Elon Musk has a few big surprises for you. Think about it. I’m sure Xi Jinping and the other tyrannical regimes of the world are frothing at the mouth thinking about how this new technology would enable them to effortless, not only monitor every thought, but more importantly limit every movement of the zombies foolish enough to fall for this massive invasion of privacy and autonomy.
Man’s Four-part Nature
On the spiritual level, the idea itself is nothing less than Satanic. The New Testament word2 for ‘witchcraft’ is “pharmakeia”3 (Gr.), from which we get the word ‘pharmacy’ or drug. Sorcery has always been associated with psychotic drugs since ancient times because once the mind is effectively subdued or paralyzed, the human soul becomes directly subject to the spirit realm. Jesus taught4 man is a four-part being: mind, spirit, soul, and body. Satan is limited to accessing the human race through the mind, the proverbial tree5 of knowledge.
The greatest weapon the believer has is to ‘renew’ the mind, bringing it back into submission to the Holy Spirit through the Word of God, not handing the control of the mind over to Satan and his minions. ~ “For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2Corinthians 10.4-5).
Mind Control on Steroids
It could be accurately said that demon possession is nothing less than literally losing one’s (control of the) mind. ~ “Then they came to Jesus, and saw the one who had been demon–possessed and had the legion, sitting and clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid” (Mark 5.15). God wants His children in their ‘right mind,’ in the mind that is controlled by man’s reborn spirit under the guidance of the Spirit of God, not under the control of the devil via an implanted brain chip.
The Mark of the Beast
Would this not be tantamount to the mark of beast delineated6 in the John’s book of Revelation? ~ “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives [his] mark on his forehead or on his hand” (Revelation 14.9). As with every computer, each brain chip is identified by a number, the number9 of the beast. The mark on the forehead is the scar tissue left by the implantation of the chip. If, as Elon Musk says, the Neuralink chip is capable of controlling body movement, would it not also be capable of programming all to bow down and worship at the altar of the Beast, the Anti-Christ system?
The idea that utopia can be attained through the development of human knowledge is not only vain, it is stupid. ~ “Professing to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1.22). The only ‘utopia’ that can be attained is that of the chosen few who are counted worthy of inhabiting the Kingdom of Heaven for eternity, which is a product of spiritual knowledge. ~ “The worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11.3). Since the Garden of Eden, the only thing carnal knowledge has produced is suffering, bondage, and death. ~ “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” (Genesis 2.17).
Why would anyone want a neurochip implant when the manifold wisdom of God and the mind of Christ7 have been made available to them through the ministry of the Holy Spirit? The choice will soon be yours, whether to choose Microsoft over the multifaceted wisdom of God, whether to become a free spirit or embondaged robot. The choice will soon be yours whether to be a trans-human or a trans-spirit; a transformed, re-created, regenerated spirit partaking for eternity of the divine nature8 of God.
