“Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:...” Ephesians 1:9 KJV
There is a word that is floating around with increasing interest that I have discovered. The word is singularity. I looked up this word because the idea of it is used in the biochemistry industry, also Nano-technology industry, and manufacturers of prosthesis or artificial limbs. Interesting isn’t it? It simply means something that is unique, unusual, exceptional, distinctive, or remarkable. All technology today is most astounding to say the least and fits all these descriptions. In my investigation of this word I found that it has been around for quite some time but funneled through science-fiction movies and books written based upon theory and some fiction. Non-the-less, in the last ten years it has gained popularity and momentum. I feel that the rapid increase of the technology electronics and robotics manufacturing world has been gaining steadily to the point of humanizing machines. As I stated before, this isn’t anything new to the Sci-fi buffs but it is amazing and most remarkable to realize this is going to be the near future. I fully understood the 21st century was really here when I saw the Honda Robot on display and demonstrated on a stage for the world to witness. It is quite amazing to say the least. In the world of robotics, it is their underlying fantasy to bring about a merger of the two, robotics, and human tissue, thus in a word, singularity. You think this is fantasy? Have you ever wondered what stem cell technology is really all about? When I saw the ear and skin that was grown in a laboratory at a college as a biological experiment, I knew that the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler and his team of doctors and scientists dream of a master race was still on the minds of chemists, doctors, biologists, and politicians. So, it seems the age old desire of man becoming a god hasn’t faded away at all. Do you have any idea what a government could do with an army of these super-human robotic, Robocop, type people? I feel it would be the ultimate nightmare of WWII played out. Believe me, men in high places are longing for this to happen and are not wasting any time in the advancement of Robocop, I-Robot, and Bicentennial Man, in which the family robot finally achieves his goal by being declared human by a Court of Law. Along with others watching this growth of technology, I feel this will be a reality by 2020 because of the rapid advancement of technology in all fields of science. This is exactly what it is, the insatiable quest for knowledge without knowing full well what the consequences will be. I have always thought that knowledge to scientist, biologist, and all other academics is somewhat like giving a loaded gun to a child just to see what he can do with it regardless the consequences. Just because they are adults and have a value system of the dangers involved does not mean that they will avoid risks. No, even when the risk of disaster looms they will go forward anyway and give their theories a trial run without knowing the outcome. This was before my time but does anyone remember the trial tests of the Atom Bomb? Does anyone know of the maimed servicemen and women of who lives were destroyed bringing that apparatus of destruction into being? It would be in the thousands of citizens of the U.S., and nobody wants to know because of the shame and disgrace it would conjure up among citizens. And so it goes with any and all technology that mankind has a hand in because wherever mankind goes destruction and heartache follow. Mankind always justifies his evil deeds using the good he can perform after the fact of destructive acts he has already committed against humanity. Somewhat like the Vietnam tragedy. It is just our nature to be this way and nothing outside of Almighty God can change this human calamity.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9 KJV
“O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” Jeremiah 10:23 KJV
As I see things, the strategy of Satan from the outset of being cast out of Heaven has always been to throw the proverbial wrench into God’s master plan everywhere it would be possible. Satan has doggedly and relentlessly conjured up counterfeit people to install them in strategic places of his choosing. All these attempts of course, are allowed by Jehovah God but somehow still works along with the master plan of the ages. It is most amazing to see how God still makes things to work in His favour despite the evil setbacks Satan awards us with.
With these thoughts in mind, let us look at the plan God has for His children. The LORD God Jehovah has a plan in place for each of His children and it will culminate when the LORD Jesus Christ returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom on earth. It will all begin when the “catching up” or rapture, that the Apostle Paul describes takes place. The reason for this rapture is to consummate the Marriage of the Lamb (Jesus) with the Bride (the Church of born-again believers). This is the spiritual sense of the term, singularity. The Bride of Christ and the LORD Jesus will be together forever into eternity from this point on never to separate again. We now are spiritually one with Christ as we live out our lives on earth but not physically. Our lives will change in the moment of a twinkling of an eye as we are metamorphasized with a new and glorious body the Apostle Paul describes in I Corinthians chapter 15.
“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.” I Corinthians 15:20-27 KJV
“Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:...” Ephesians 2:5-6 KJV
As it stands right now we as born-again Christian’s are waiting in the wings for these things to happen. Thus we wait with hope and anxiously look forward to the return of Christ Jesus. At this juncture the Bride of Christ will be physically in the presence of the Prince of the Kingdom of God.
“And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.” I Corinthians 15:49-54 KJV
