And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, (10) The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: (11) And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Together both of these articles show that the scientists are on the verge of creating a transhuman. This is a beast that is part human and part something else. It could be part machine or, by mixing DNA, part animal. Creating a transhuman is right on top of us! The genetic manipulation is further advanced, but both are near completion, which results in a being that is no longer human.
I believe that tampering with the integrity of man is a KEY sign of the approaching Day of the LORD. God will put a stop to this at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. It appears from Revelation 13:15 that man will succeed in creating a transhuman which the Bible calls “The Image of the Beast.”
Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
From charting the advancement toward creating a transhuman being, it is possible to get an idea how close man is to the Day of the LORD and God’s judgment. God must stop the creation of transhumans because these creatures are not created in His image and likeness; therefore, they cannot be redeemed through the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Man Now The Creator
Transhumanism shows the end of the road of man’s rebellion against God! This is close, very close. What I am posting is NOT science fiction. What was once science fiction is now becoming reality! What was science fiction 20 years ago can be reality in the very near future! It is like much of science fiction is advertisement for transhumanism. It is softening the public, especially the youngsters, to accept it. These are incredible times we live in and do not be fearful: but grow closer to the Savior and focused on His Coming.

A major part of my research goes into watching the scientists decode and digitize the thinking process of the brain. This knowledge will then be used to create the Image of the Beast which will have an exact replica of the human brain. The scientists are continuing to develop more breakthroughs to reduce the functions of the brain to a working level they can understand.
The merging of the brain and machine continues.
Brain Machine Interface “At the heart of Nicolelis’s work is a device called a brain-machine-brain interface (BMBI). These can replace the damaged spinal nerves that leave people paralysed by sending information back and forth between their brains and robotic machinery. In this case, the wearers will control their exoskeletons with their minds alone.”Nicolelis’s work hints at even more extraordinary possibilities. He says the implants can “effectively liberate the brain from the physical constraints of the body”. There’s no reason why, for example, an exoskeleton might control only the usual number of human limbs. “We could have four legs or four arms on an exoskeleton and we would make the brain assume that is the natural body configuration,” he says. “That is how f ar you can go.”
New hope for repairing diseased or damaged brains “The University of Wisconsin-Madison study found that when neurons generated from human embryonic stem cells (hESC) were implanted into the hippocampus of a mouse, the neurons began to behave like normal rat neurons. That means that for humans in the future, there could be limitless supplies of healthy, specialized cells to replace diseased or damaged cells for brain disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. “
A Terminator-style contact-lens display The merging man with machine. As I have written, a great part of science fiction is satan preparing society for what is coming. This will all appear normal to the youth.
“A team led by experts at Southern Methodist University is making swift progress towards prosthetic devices that rely on fiber-optics, and would offer a wearer the kind of seamless movement and sensation experienced with a flesh-and-blood limb. It all started in 2005, when researchers at Vanderbilt realized they could trigger a nerve using infrared light. The finding catalyzed a handful of research projects investigating the prospect of laser-powered prostheses”

Stem cells join muscle, spinal cord cells in ‘human-on-a-chip’ simulation “The goal is to produce systems that include various miniature organs connected in realistic ways to simulate human body function. This would make it possi ble, for instance, to test drugs on human cells well before they could safely and ethically be tested on living humans. The technique could potentially be more effective than testing in mice and other animals currently used to screen promising drug candidates and to develop other medical treatments.”
“Neurons generated in the lab from blank-slate human embryonic stem cells and implanted into the brains of mice can successfully fuse with the brain’s wiring and both send and receive signals, scientists st University of Wisconsin-Madison have found — a crucial step toward deploying customized cells to repair damaged or diseased brains.” (This is always being done for health reasons! They always say this to smooth over any fears people may have of the mad scientists and the direction they are heading.)
