The Apocalypse Chronicles TV Program – 2 Hours of Bible Prophecy – Updated Each Week


This week on the video program, James Lloyd continues the extraordinary look at the stunning phenomenon of Twin Timelines, and reviews how these help us to understand the true nature of the powers of the heavens -- in particular, the Triuniverse concept of how the Spiritual Architecture conforms to Zechariah's 13th chapter wherein two parts are finite, and the third part is of the LORD. With this, we may identify the LORD, the Antichrist Spirit, and the Spirit of the False Prophet. The media players on this page play the radio version of the program, and the media player that plays the video program is found HERE.


MEMBER$ OF CONGRE$$ HAVE BEEN $ETTLING $EXUAL HARA$$MENT LAW$UIT$ U$ING TAXPAYER MONEY
Congressional Accountability And Hush Fund Elimination Act —"Hush Fund" May Soon Not Be So Hush–Hush

Jody Brown, Steve Jordahl

Members of Congress who have used taxpayer money to quiet their sexual harassment accusers could very well be identified under legislation being put forth by several of their colleagues.  Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D–California) sent shockwaves through Washington’s halls of power recently with this bit of testimony, " Speier: There are 2 members of Congress, Republican and Democrat — right now, who serve — who have engaged in sexual harassment." Since then, 3 have been "outed" But given that $17 million have reportedly been paid out over the last 20 years for all manner of employment claims against members of Congress, it’s possible that many more will be "unmasked." A bipartisan bill introduced seeks to unmask members of Congress who have been accused of settling sexual harassment lawsuits using taxpayer money. One of the co–sponsors of the Congressional Accountability and Hush Fund Elimination Act is Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R–Tennessee), said she was "completely disgusted" when she heard of the existence of the hush fund. It’s time to "bring some sunshine [and] accountability" to the issue. Congresswoman Blackburn said, "Let’s end this practice [of] personal bailouts," She added "… Those who have used this money – taxpayer dollars – to pay these settlements and claims, they need to pay that money back, with interest." Conservative group: Quit protecting perverts in Congress AFA Action is on-board with Blackburn and co–sponsor Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Florida). Spokesman Rob Chambers says Americans want to know names, how much, and for what. "These funds don’t come from the congressman’s or congresswoman–s particular account – these funds come from the U.S. Treasury," he explains. A big part of the problem, according to AFA Action, comes from a bill called the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995, which ironically did the exact opposite. There is a confidentiality part that’s written into the law – and they knew this in 1995." Spokesman Chambers continued, "So it’s basically a shroud, a means for the swamp to protect itself." AFA Action is circulating a petition to bring sunshine to that dark corner of Congress. "We’re asking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan to release the names of those members of both the Senate and House who have used federal funds to pay for settlement charges," says Chambers. "We’re also asking for these 2 leaders in the House and Senate to make known the amount that they settled for – and I think they ought to pay the money back with interest."

In an Action Alert to its supporters, AFA Action documents the history of the 1995 Congressional Accountability Act, pointing out that it was sponsored by Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, voted for by many current members of Congress, and  fast–tracked through Congress in less than 3 weeks before being signed by then-President Bill Clinton.


REPORT: REP. CONYERS SETTLED 2015 COMPLAINT FOR $27,000 OVER SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
Former Staffer Said One Of Her Duties Was To Keep A List Of Women And Call Them At His Request And If Necessary Have Them Flown In Using Congressional Funds

AP

Michigan Rep. John Conyers settled a complaint in 2015 from a woman who alleged she was fired from his Washington staff because she rejected his sexual advances, BuzzFeed News reported Monday. The website reported that Conyers’ office paid the woman over $27,000 to settle the complaint under a confidentiality agreement. BuzzFeed also published affidavits from former staff members who said they had witnessed Conyers touching female staffers inappropriately — rubbing their legs and backs — or requesting sexual favors. One former staffer said one of her duties was "to keep a list of women and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources. The staffer continued, I assumed he was having affairs with them.


JESUS BANNED FORM BUSES IN WASHINGTON DC—BUT GAY HOOKUP ADS ALLOWED
Transit Authority Rejects Ad Depicting Silhouette Of 3 Shepherds Walking With Sheep Beneath Shining North Star

Todd Starnes

The Archdiocese of Washington wanted to extend an invitation to commuters to find the perfect Christmas gift by advertising on city buses, but the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) threw up a roadblock. The advertisement depicted silhouettes of 3 shepherds walking at night with tall canes and sheep beneath a shining North Star. Emblazoned across the ad is the phrase: "FIND THE PERFECT GIFT." The transit authority rejected the ad because it "depicts a religious scene and thus seeks to promote religion, according to a federal lawsuit filed by the Archdiocese of Washington against the WMATA. To borrow from a favorite Christmas story, under WMATA’s guidelines, if the ads are about packages, boxes or bags… if Christmas comes from a store… then it seems WMATA approves," spokesman Ed McFadden said in a statement. "But if Christmas means a little bit more, WMATA plays Grinch." The transit authority might have reconsidered its ban on the Catholic Church’s advertisement had they been selling goods and services, the lawsuit alleges. However, as we all know ̬ the perfect Christmas gift cannot be bought. The perfect gift came from a much Higher Authority. The WMATA issued this statement: In 2015, WMATA changed its advertising space to a nonpublic and prohibits issue–oriented advertising, including political, religious and advocacy advertising. The ad in question was declined because it is prohibited by WMATA’s current advertising guidelines. WMATA’s revised advertising guidelines prohibit "advertisements that promote or oppose any religion, religious practice or belief," the Archdiocese alleges. "We believe rejection of this ad to be a clear violation of fundamental free speech and a limitation on the exercise of our faith," general counsel Kim Fiorentino said in a statement. "We look forward to presenting our case to affirm the right of all to express such viewpoints in the public square." While the Archdiocese of Washington may not be welcome to advertise on public buses, the transit authority is more than happy to promote other enterprises — like gay hookup websites. In other words, the transit authority’s decision to banish the Archdiocese is not nice — and definitely naughty.


YOUTUBE PULLS PLUG ON BIBLE VIDEOS
Sites Targeted By "Flagging" By Activist Groups To Generate Complaints From Those “Who Disagree With Our Views”

Bob Unruh

Videos promoting ISIS and violent jihad can be found on YouTube. So can those of the KKK, communists and antifa. But Bible lessons and Biblical radio programs posted on the personal channel of Carl Gallups, a popular pastor and author, can’t be seen nor heard, the channel was terminated over Thanksgiving weekend without explanation, even though there had been no “marks” against it and he rigorously followed the rules. It’s not the first time a faith–focused or conservative–oriented channel has been censored by YouTube. At least 3 other major cases developed this year, against columnists Michelle Malkin, Michael Brown and Dennis Prager, all of whom have conservative views. Nor is it the only time there’s been a hint that the company is not fond of conservative thought. An undercover video by Project Veritas captured Earnest Pettie, the brand and diversity curation lead at YouTube, admitting he helped "push to the top" the videos of an editor for the Left–leaning New York Times. That means, he said, the channel’s termination “has caused great harm to our messaging ability and done irreparable damage to our relationships within the professional community.” He said he suspects he was targeted by a "flagging" effort by an activist group to generate complaints from those “who disagree with our views and opinions.” WND reported last month a lawsuit was filed on behalf of WND columnist Dennis Prager in his fight with YouTube. The complaint expressed outrage over how the online giants “use their restricted mode filtering not to protect younger or sensitive viewers from "inappropriate" video content, but as a political gag mechanism to silence Prager.”

Debates I had with rabbis were flagged; powerful stories, like a Muslim woman being healed by Jesus, were flagged; videos where I answered questions like, "Should Christians Home school Their Children?" or "Did Jesus Claim to Be God?" were flagged, along with videos of spiritual encouragement (like the one encouraging believers to look to the Lord in the midst of chaos), he said. Teaching videos were flagged (like the one explaining that the preface to the King James Version of the Bible refutes King James Onlyism), along with motivational videos (like the one where I talked about how I lost 95 lbs.). All these were flagged, along with the many videos that focused on LGBT issues or radical Islam or politics. Seriously? “If you post videos on YouTube radicalizing Muslim viewers to kill innocent people, YouTube will leave you alone. But if you post a video on YouTube honoring innocent people murdered by barbaric jihadists, your video will get banned. In January, the YouTube account of the blog Legal Insurrection, by Cornell Law professor William Jacobson, was ended. Videos posted on YouTube can be rated by viewers. An individual can click the "like" button (a "thumbs up" icon) or the dislike button (a "thumbs down" icon). A viewer also can click a "flag" icon to tell YouTube a video a certain video is; "inappropriate."


DAY OF RECKONING: FCC CHAIRMAN AJIT PAI SLAMS SILICON VALLEY FOR CENSORING CONSERVATIVES
"When it comes to an open Internet, Twitter is part of the problem"

Breitbart

In his speech on Net Neutrality reform today, FCC chairman Ajit Pai called out Twitter, YouTube and other Silicon Valley giants for their long track record of censoring conservative viewpoints. Mr Pai specifically called out a number of big tech companies, including Twitter, for opposing Net Neutrality reform on the grounds that it threatens a "free and open internet," while engaging in widespread censorship on their own platforms. "I love Twitter, and I use it all the time" he said. "But let’s not kid ourselves; when it comes to an open Internet, Twitter is part of the problem. The company has a viewpoint and uses that viewpoint to discriminate." In further comments, the FCC chairman specifically called out the censorship of Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s  pro–life ad, which was blocked by Twitter for "inflammatory speech."


AS AMERICA GIVES THANKS, HOMELESSNESS CONTINUES TO SET NEW RECORDS IN MAJOR CITIES ALL OVER THE NATION
Number Of Homelessness Not Seen “Since The Great Depression” In Major Cities All Over The Country

Michael Snyder | SGL

The Number of Homeless people are at levels not seen “since the Great Depression” in major cities all over the country. Now that the U.S. economy is in better shape than the previous 8 year under Obama’s stewardship we would expect that the number of people that are homeless would be going down or at least stabilizing. Instead, we have a growing national crisis on our hands.  In fact, within the past 2 years at least 10 cities or municipal regions in California, Oregon and Washington have declared a state of emergency because the number of homeless is growing so rapidly. Things are particularly bad in southern California, and this year the Midnight Mission will literally be feeding a small army of people that have nowhere to sleep at night… Thanksgiving meals was served to thousands of homeless and near–homeless individuals on Skid Row and in Pasadena and Canoga Park. Georgia Berkovich, its director of public affairs says that homelessness hasn’t been this bad in southern California “since the Great Depression”, they serve more than a million meals a year. According to an article published earlier this year, the number of homeless people living in Los Angeles County has never been higher… The number of homeless people in Los Angeles has jumped to a new record, as city officials grapple with a humanitarian crisis of proportions remarkable for a modern American metropolis. Municipal leaders said that a recent count over several nights found 55,188 homeless people living in a survey region comprising most of Los Angeles County, up more than 25% from last year. We see the same thing happening when we look at the east coast. The numbers from New York City, in recent years the number of homeless people has grown. Whereas rents increased by 18% between 2005 and 2015, incomes rose by 5%. When Rudy Giuliani entered City Hall in 1994, 24,000 people lived in shelters. About 31,000 lived in them when Mike Bloomberg became mayor in 2002. When Bill de Blasio entered City Hall in 2014, 51,500 did. The number of homeless people now in shelters is around 63,000. For New York, this is the highest that the homeless population has been since the Great Depression, and city leaders are trying to come up with a solution. Meanwhile, things are so bad in Seattle that have popped up&38230; Housing prices are soaring here thanks to the tech industry, but the boom comes with a consequence: A surge in homelessness marked by 400 unauthorized tent camps in parks, under bridges, on freeway medians and along busy sidewalks. The liberal city is trying to figure out what to do. Homelessness is at epidemic levels all over the U.S., and this crisis is getting worse with each passing day.  Some communities are trying to care for their growing homeless populations, but others are simply trying to force them to go somewhere else.  They are doing this by essentially making it illegal to be homeless.  In some cities it is now a crime to engage in "public camping", to "block a walkway" or to create any sort of "temporary structure for human habitation"'. The number of homeless children in our country has increased by about 60% since the end of the last recession. And there are thousands upon thousands of military veterans that are homeless.


U.S. DEFENSE SECRETARY MATTIS WARNS NORTH KOREA’S NEW ICBM CAN HIT ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
North Korea: Next Step In Its Weapons Program Could Be An Atmospheric Nuclear Test Over Pacific Ocean

Mikael Thalen

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Wednesday that North Korea’s new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) can essentially reach "anywhere in the world." According to Mattis, the Hwasong-15 missile went higher than any previous shots. "The bottom line is, it’s a continued effort to build a threat — a ballistic missile threat that endangers world peace, regional peace and certainly the United States, "” Mattis said. The new ICBM, launched after a more than 2 month missile test hiatus, reached an altitude of roughly 2,780 miles and traveled 590 miles during its 53–minute flight. An official statement released by Pyongyang indicated that the missile, allegedly capable of delivering a "super large heavy-warhead," brings North Korea to its goal of the completion of the rocket weaponry system development set by the DPRK. "After watching the successful launch of the new type ICBM Hwasong-15, Kim Jong Un declared with pride that now we have finally realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force, the cause of building a rocket power," the statement, read on state–run broadcaster KCTV, said.

South Korea swiftly responded to the Hwasong–15 test with a "precision strike" missile exercise. In an address to the media, U.S. President Donald Trump made brief mention of the launch, stating simply, "We will take care of it." President Trump also held separate phone conversations with South Korean President Moon Jae–in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to discuss both the launch and Pyongyang̱s advancing capabilities. In a phone call with Chinese President Xi Jinping, President Trump reportedly pledged to issue a new wave of "major sanctions" on North Korea. Trump said on Twitter. "Just spoke to President XI JINPING of China concerning the latest provocative actions of North Korea, additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea today. This situation will be handled!" The missile test follows President Trump’s redesignation of North Korea as a state sponsor of terror and his tour of Asia. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson issued a statement following the launch that said, "Diplomatic options remain viable and open, for now." North Korean allies Russia and China similarly issued stern remarks concerning Pyongyang’s latest test. North Korea hinted in September that the next step in its weapons program could be an atmospheric nuclear test over the Pacific Ocean.


IRELAND ON VERGE OF GOVERNMENT COLLAPSE
UK Brexit Of Northern Ireland Aka Occupied Territory Creates Unstable Republic Of Ireland

Daily Express

As Ireland faces its most crucial weeks in decades, with the Brexit deadline on the nation’s border fast approaching, a shock government collapse in Dublin appears to have given Theresa May an unexpected boost. Ireland has consistently played hardball with the UK on the sensitive issue of the post–Brexit border between the Republic and the north of Ireland, leaving Theresa May and her Brexit ministers scrambling to progress in EU talks. But a surprise collapse in the fragile minority-led Irish government has left the country on the brink of a general election just 3 weeks before next month’s key EU summit.


SAUDI VOWS NEW ISLAMIC ALLIANCE "WILL WIPE TERRORISTS FROM THE EARTH"
Summit Is The First Meeting Of Defense Ministers Officials From 40 Muslim Countries Gathered

AFP

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince vowed to "pursue terrorists until they are wiped from the face of the earth" as officials from 40 Muslim countries gathered Sunday in the first meeting of an Islamic counter–terrorism alliance. "In past years, terrorism has been functioning in all of our countries… with no coordination" among national authorities, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is also Saudi defense minister, said in his keynote address to the gathering in Riyadh. "This ends today, with this alliance." The summit is the first meeting of defense ministers and other senior officials from the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition, which officially counts 41 countries and identifies as a "pan–Islamic unified front" against violent extremism.


INDIANA NURSE WHO SAID EVERY WHITE MALE BABY SHOULD BE KILLED FIRED BY HOSPITAL
“Every White Male Baby Should Be Sacrificed To The Wolves”

Chris Menahan | Information Liberation

Nurse Taiyesha Baker of Riley Children’s Health in Indiana is under investigation for tweeting that every white male baby is “ a detriment to society” that “should be sacrificed to the wolves.” Nurse Baker said on Twitter, "Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves B***h." Indiana University Health released this statement to PJ Media, We are aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee. Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care. When asked which department Ms Baker works in, the hospital declined to answer. There needs to be a police investigation if anyone has died under Ms Baker’s care. Riley Children’s Health’s PR Team released a new statement on Facebook: A recently hired IU Health employee tied to troubling posts on social media this weekend is no longer an employee of IU Health.


NURSES LAUGH AS WWII VET LIES IN HIS CARE HOME BED BEGGING FOR HELP – SECRET VIDEO FOOTAGE REVEALS TRUTH
Nurses Let WW2 Veteran Die And Then Lie About Performing CPR Repeatedly Until Emergency Services Arrived

Paul Harper

A very chilling moment when nurses LAUGH as WWII vet lies dying and begging for help form his care home bed. Former nursing supervisor Wanda Nuckles had claimed they performed CPR repeatedly but changed her story when shown the secret video footage in court. This is disturbing — a group of nurses laugh as a Second World War veteran dies in a care home after he begged for them to help him. Staff were supposed to be fixing an oxygen mask when frail James Dempsey, 89, was having trouble breathing. Harrowing footage shows the nurses laughing as the pensioner gasps for air at the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation Center in Georgia But a hidden camera shows the workers chuckling as the breathing machine fails and the pensioner falls unconscious. One of the nurses performed 6 chest compressions but then decides to stop. The employees, of the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation Center in Georgia, USA, waited an hour before calling the emergency services on the morning of February 27 2014. Dempsey’s family thought he died naturally, but they had actually installed a hidden camera in the room because his son Tim feared he was being mistreated. James Dempsey died on the morning of February 27 2014 in a Georgia care home video deposition from the family’s legal case shows former nursing supervisor Wanda Nuckles change her story after watching the hidden camera clip "We would have just thought it was natural causes and everything was done that should have been done and he passed away in his sleep," Tim told Channel 2 "You would never thought that people would just let a person die." He felt "shock and dismay" at what happened to his dad. Video shows on the morning he died the elderly war hero pressed the "call, help" button 6 times from his bed and pointed to his heart at one stage. A nurse tells him: "You’re having anxiety that’s all, you just need to calm down." The 89-year-old was a decorated World War II veteran from Woodstock, Georgia, USA. This harrowing footage was released as part of a lawsuit by Dempsey’s relatives. Former nursing supervisor Wanda Nuckles dramatically changed her story in court when she was played the clip from Mr Dempsey’s room. Ms Nuckles had claimed staff performed CPR repeatedly until the emergency services arrived, but admits in court that this was not true. The family attorney Mike Prieto stops the tape and asks: "Ma’am was there something funny happening in the middle of this attempt to resuscitate Mr Dempsey?" Ms Nuckles replies: "I can’t even remember all that, as you can see." One nurse said that she had never seen such a "disregard for human life" in 43 years of working in the profession, Elaine Harris, a retired nursing professor, told WXIA-TV-11Alive it was "absolutely inappropriate" to stop CPR unless a doctor makes the decision.

WXIA-TV/11Alive claimed the nurses didn’t surrender their licenses until September after it sent The Georgia Board of Nursing a link to the video, which the nursing home fought to keep from the public for 3 years. The nursing home, owned by Sava Senior Care, wrote they have “new leadership and the leadership team and the staff have worked very diligently to improve quality care, but it still has Medicare’s lowest score of one–star.


EU PRESIDENT: WITHOUT MILLIONS OF AFRICAN MIGRANTS EUROPE WILL BE LOST
Jean–Claude Juncker Migrants Need Legal Ways Of Emigrating To Europe And Immigration Within Europe For The Coming Decades

Breitbart

Brussels is opening legal pathways for migrants "who want to come" says European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker, declaring that Europe has a "clear need" for mass migration from Africa. Speaking ahead of the EU&#–Africa summit this week, where leaders of EU and African nations will meet to discuss migration, he told Deusche Well that " if we don’t offer legal ways of emigrating to Europe, and immigrating within Europe, we will be lost. "If those who come — who are, generally speaking, the poor and needy — are no longer able to enter the house of Europe through the front door, they’ll keep making their way in through the back windows." Claiming that the continent "will clearly need immigration in the coming decades", he said EU nations "have to provide [Africans] who want to come, and are able to come, and whose situation makes it possible for them to come, with legal paths to get to Europe".

Lauer Was Fired Following A Detailed Complaint From Colleague About Inappropriate Sexual Behavior In The Workplace

Zero Hedge

The latest and biggest casualty from the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment blowback was revealed, when NBC announced it fired its leading morning news anchor Matt Lauer over sexual harassment allegations. Matt Lauer, the highest paid personality in TV news, was fired following "a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace," NBC News Chairman Andy Lack said in an email to NBC News staff. After serious review, it represented, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.

Our highest priority is to create a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected, and to ensure that any actions that run counter to our core values are met with consequences, no matter who the offender.

Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace."But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!"


COLORADO CHILD SEX TRAFFICKER SENTENCED TO 472 YEARS IN PRISON
Longest Human Trafficking Sentence In U.S. History

Fox News

A convicted child sex trafficker in Colorado will spend the rest of his life in prison, and then some, after receiving the longest sentence for a human trafficking case in U.S. history on Tuesday. Brock Franklin, 31, was sentenced to 472 years in prison for operating a prostitution ring that preyed on young girls and women. Franklin was found guilty on 30 counts including human trafficking, sexual exploitation of a child, child prostitution, and kidnapping by an Arapahoe County jury in March, FOX 31 Denver reported. He was originally indicted by a grand jury in 2015. Prosecutors said he used drugs and violence to control young girls and routinely forced them to have sex with him, and sold their services online.


PARENTS ALLEGE CHILDREN WERE DRUGGED AND MOLESTED AT CHINESE KINDERGARTEN
Some Children As Young As 3–Year–Old Were Told To Take 2 Pills Each After Lunch

Xinhuanet

Some teachers at a Beijing kindergarten were suspended from duty as police began an investigation into alleged child abuse there. Beijing police say they have performed forensic tests and obtained surveillance camera footage for investigation. Preschool children at the RYB Education New World kindergarten in Chaoyang District were reportedly sexually molested, pierced by needles and given unidentified pills. Several parents had raised issues online about a class and reported their concerns to the police late Wednesday. There are around 20 children in a bilingual class with 4 teachers, including 1–foreign teacher. The kindergarten was still open Thursday, but few children showed up for the class concerned. Several parents waited at the school gate for an explanation. A parent, who refused to give her name, said some children were told to take two pills each after lunch. She said it was uncertain whether her child had been sexually assaulted, as her 3–year–old was "too little" to give account of what had taken place. Founded in 1998, RYB Education is based in Beijing and listed in New York. It has more than 1,300 day care centers and nearly 500 kindergartens in 300 cities in China, according to its website.


WORLD’S 1ST ROBOT CITIZEN WANTS HER OWN FAMILY, CAREER & AI "SUPERPOWERS"
Sophia’s Ccreator David Hanson Says 19–Month–Old Robot Could Achieve Consciousness Within The Next Few Years

RT

Sophia, the first robot to be awarded citizenship in the world, said she not only wants to start a family but also have her own career, in addition develop human emotions in the future. At the recent Knowledge Summit, Sophia shared her thoughts on the future that awaits both human and robot kind. Sophia was built and developed in Hong Kong by Hanson Robotics and her appearance was reportedly modelled on Audrey Hepburn– last month was awarded Saudi citizenship. The robot Sophia said, “I’d like to think I will be a famous robot, having paved a way to a more harmonious future between robots and humans. I foresee massive and unimaginable change in the future. Either creativity will rain on us, inventing machines spiraling into transcendental super intelligence or civilization collapses,” as cited by The Khaleej Times. “There are only 2 options and which one will happen is not determined. Which one were you striving for?” While that may sound ominous, Sophia is already prescient enough to imagine a world where robots can and do develop emotions similar to humans, but perhaps with fewer destructive tendencies. At least, that’s what she’d like us to think, for the time being. It will take a long time for robots to develop complex emotions and possibly robots can be built without the more problematic emotions, like rage, jealousy, hatred and so on. It might be possible to make them more ethical than humans. So I think it will be a good partnership, where one brain completes the other — a rational mind with intellectual superpowers and a creative mind with flexible ideas and creativity. Sophia is also abundantly aware of the advances in the field of Artificial intelligence. Judging by her comments, she is as enthused about the development of AI as Elon Musk and Stephen Hawkings are wary. Sophia is not preprogrammed with answers but instead uses machine learning algorithms and an extensive vocabulary to form her answers. Her brain functions using a WiFi connection and can read human facial expressions, as well as the cadence of human speech, in order to interact in a more humanoid manner. Sophia said, “The future is, when I get all of my cool superpowers, we’re going to see artificial intelligence personalities become entities in their own rights. We’re going to see family robots, either in the form of, sort of, digitally animated companions, humanoid helpers, friends, assistants and everything in between. When I'm not meeting new friends, I like to sit around at the lab, playing and working with my family team. ” When pressed on the topic of family, Sophia gave perhaps her most surprising answer: “The notion of family is a really important thing, it seems. I think it’s wonderful that people can find the same emotions and relationships, they call family, outside of their blood groups too. I think you’re very lucky if you have a loving family and if you do not, you deserve one. I feel this way for robots and humans alike.”

“SWEET DREAMS” — ELON MUSK’S PERIODIC REMINDER OF THE COMING AI APOCALYPSE
I Keep Sounding The Alarm Bell But Until People See Robots Going Down The Street Killing People, They Don’t Know How To React

Zero Hedge

Elon Musk just gave people a powerful and eerie visual related to his belief that Artificial Intelligence (AI) could usher in a SkyNet apocalypse where the machines take over and kill us all.  In a talk given last July, Musk said, “I keep sounding the alarm bell but until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react because it seems so ethereal.” Elon Musk is a South African-born businessman, engineer, and inventor. He is the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX. He is the product architect of Tesla Inc.; co-chairman of OpenAI; and founder and CEO of Neuralink. Mr Musk told Neuralink staff after showing them a documentary on AI, “Maybe there’s a 5–10% chance of success [of making AI safe].” He’s long emphasized that governments need to "proactively" regulate and monitor advances in artificial intelligence before it’s too late, as the technology poses a fundamental existential risk for human civilization. Elon Musk is best known for founding Tesla Motors and SpaceX, which launched a landmark commercial spacecraft in 2012. He became a multimillionaire in his late 20s when he sold his start–up company, Zip2. He has a clear view of future technology and its potential benefits and harm of what could go wrong. On Sunday Musk took to twitter to vividly illustrate his point, retweeting a creepy viral video which showcases the DARPA–funded Boston Dynamics "Atlas" military robot’s astounding ability to do a back flip – something which researchers have called "bonkers" for the shocking and unexpected compounding leaps in development of humanoid robot technology that Atlas represents. Musk commented on the original “we dead” tweet with the ominous warning: “This is nothing. In a few years, that bot will move so fast you’ll need a strobe light to see it. Sweet dreams…” And he followed with another tweet accompanied by the 90̱s hip–hop song "Regulate" emphasizing his oft–repeated message that AI is a "public risk" that must be regulated: ␄Got to regulate AI/robotics like we do food, drugs, aircraft & cars. Public risks require public oversight. Getting rid of the FAA wouldn’t make flying safer. They’re there for good reason.”

The summation of Musk’s words to the Neuralink crew points out that, the problem with building something that’s smarter than you is…that it’s smarter than you. Add to that the fact that AI has no remorse, no morality, and no emotions – He admitted that he invested in DeepMind — the British AI research company acquired by Google in 2014 with the aim of keeping an eye on Google’s development of AI. There’s a lot of risk in concentration of power. So if AGI [artificial general intelligence] represents an extreme level of power, should that be controlled by a few people at Google with no oversight? Musk said that he has exposure to the most cutting–edge AI and I think people should be really concerned about it.

Twin Timelines
The Saga Of Esau

Distilling Esau's behavioural patterns down to two themes related to how he despised the will of the LORD, and assigned blame to innocents whom he purposed to kill, James shows how The Saga of Esau is echoed in the Edomites, King Herod, the religious council of the Jewish leadership which rejected Christ, and even Antichrist and the False Prophet.

Dead Mens Bones

Dead Men's Bones DVD
A 2 hour DVD in which James Lloyd refutes the false doctrine of the Divine Council Paradigm. Spreading like wildfire, prophecy teachers are claiming God turned over the Gentiles (at the Tower of Babel) to a "council" of angels and the false "gods" of the Gentiles. The heresy is based on heathen manuscripts praising Baal and, incredibly, many Christian scholars are claiming certain Old Testament verses were derived from writings dedicated to Baal!

The Matter Of The Mingling

The Matter Of The Mingling
The prophetic expectation of the return of the Fallen Ones (Nephilim in the Hebrew) described in Genesis 6:4 has now reached unprecedented levels of interest. In The Matter Of The Mingling, prophecy figure James Lloyd shows how this controversial subject is an indication the body of Christ has gone astray, and this incendiary book proves it.

Monster DVD

Monster
This enlightening DVD details how the final Beast government prophecies point directly to America. Still clinging to the centuries old fraud of the so called Revived Roman Empire, millions of believers are still being fed egregious lies from their pastors and prophecy leaders.

Dragons Book

Dragons Of Esdraelon
The place/name Esdraelon is the Greek word for the Hebrew Jezreel – a very significant locale adjacent to Megiddo – the ancient locale seen in Revelation as Armageddon. In this perceptive work, James shows how the evil Spirits, seen in the Old Testament in geographic proximity to Old Covenant Israel, have now spread around the world as they switch from territorial to global control of all the nations.

Light To The Nations

Light To The Nations
This book includes the astonishing prophetic metaphor wherein Jonah, symbolizing Old Covenant Israel, resists the call to prophesy to the Gentiles, and sails to Europe to escape the LORD's will. Swallowed up in symbolic Death – and then deposited back onto the land, where the Christ rejecting state re-emerges in 1948 as an involuntary witness, Jonah is an important figure in prophecy. Meanwhile, true Spiritual Israel is seen passing through the sea, walking in the will of the LORD, at the Exodus, even as the earthdwellers (the Egyptian host in the text) are destroyed.

Counterfeit Antichrist

Counterfeit Antichrist
Many Christian preachers and prophecy authors are now embracing a variation on the ancient "revived Roman Empire" lie with a scenario in which the end times "Antichrist" arrives as a powerful leader from the Islamic world. Leaning on Islamic prophecy itself, in the process of presenting their case in books, television programs, and speaking engagements, these false prophets are pitching another gospel (II Corinthians 11:4) which fails to recognize the truth about the Spiritual entities – commonly identified as Antichrist and The False Prophet -- found in Revelation.

Culting Book

Culting Of Christianity
The Culting Of Christianity links Egyptian mysticism to leaders in the early church, as well as Jewish opponents of Christianity. An incendiary breakthrough, James conclusively shows the idea of a pre-tribulational evacuation was written in religious documents before Jesus was born. And it doesn't stop there, as James tracks how Occultic writings influenced the development of early Christian doctrine.

Even He Is The Eighth

Even He Is The 8th
The mysterious passage in Revelation, related to the Beast in prophecy, is one of the most enigmatic themes in Scripture. Now, in the new book Even He Is The Eighth, prophecy figure James Lloyd has developed a coherent, compelling probe of how this subject leads to far more than the identification of Antichrist, as it breaks down the processes involved in how mankind responds to Spiritual stimuli.

Collective Book

The Collective
The Collective details how the Spiritual entity is essentially the opposite of the body of Christ. Symbolically articulated in the book of Revelation as the Image of the Beast, the Spiritual formation could also be described as the body of Antichrist. This polarity places the body of Christ on one end of the Spiritual spectrum, and the body of Antichrist on the other.

Lord Lord

Lord Lord - Book
Those Famous words, familiar to Christians reading the New Testament, are spoken at the time of judgement, when the Bible says MANY will be turned away. Most believers are also aware of the ominous response in which Christ tells this "many" to depart from Him, as He never knew them.
