His Unmerited FavourParticipant
Satan wanting to be like God who is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. Can only try to mimic such power. Modern technology may be a means that he can achieve these or some of these attributes to a degree. Through microchips, smartphones etc, he through man, can now track people, know intimate personal knowledge, habits, preferences, etc. I have heard that they can make pretty good predictions of our daily and future actions from past data collection. This gives Satan an omnipresence of sorts. Ultimately these microchips or like may also be able to determine when people are born and when they die, it may even by means of them affecting our biology. Again trying to mimic God’s omnipotence. We are getting close to that day, the power of these technologies could be more prominent during the tribulation, and may even be a way by which people worship the Beast. Home is getting closer every second God Bless.

Possibly. I can’t really tell you what Satan wants for himself through technology. We can more easily determine what fallen Man wants from it, which is to fulfill the lie that “ye shall be as God…” Technology can give the illusion of having these godlike powers, and it appeals to human pride. Having such abilities can be useful in helping other people; it can also carry a great temptation to control other people.
Here’s a clip from an old movie called “Time Bandits.” It’s a comedy, but one of its observations about evil has stuck in my thoughts:
If I was creating a world, I wouldn’t mess about with daffodils or butterflies; I’d start with lasers, eight-o-clock, Day One.

Like many others, from a biblical end-times prophetic perspective, I have long felt that one of the clearest, most compelling pieces of evidence that bears witness to the reality of our generation being different from ALL other generations that have come before us is our present-day technology. As is true with seemingly all things, Satan will try to use if for evil, while the Lord will manage to weave it into His tapestry for good. Some of the more obvious examples include:
1) Weapons of mass destruction, which make it so easy to understand why the Lord will need to cut short the very last days before His physical return to earth in order to keep man, manipulated by Satan, from completely annihilating our planet.
2) Means of mass communications, which, among other things, will allow the whole world to look upon the dead bodies of the two witnesses while they lay in the street of Jerusalem for 3 1/2 days and the world parties on. Makes me think of the web cam that exists today where you can see the Western Wall 24/7.
3) The subcutaneously implantable RF microchip, which makes the idea of a cashless society where people could easily be frozen out from participating in the buying and selling of a worldwide economy seem like it is right around the corner.
Doubters and scoffers can claim we are just another generation parroting the cries of all those who have gone before us thinking “they” were the chosen generation that would be harpazoed, but not a single one of those generations could even begin to honestly make the claims asserted above. And truthfully, that is just one area of the unprecedented convergence of factors that collectively shout of the nearness of our Savior’s return for His Bride. Israel back in the land and in control of Jerusalem, signs in the heavens, geo-political alignments that mirror the scriptures, the overall deterioration of society across the globe, “natural” disasters, the level of spiritual deception that runs rampant in the land in the form of false religions and false prophets, and on it goes.
Surely our Bridegroom is at the door!!! Maranatha, Lord Jesus!!! Watching, praying and longing to be in Your presence today!!! Use us to accomplish Your plans and purposes for every last soul destined to enter in to Your saving grace before the arrival of Daniel’s 70th week, but please come get us as soon as You can.
John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

There is a heavy veil over the globe now as you say hiding truth and plots; deceiving. None is more glaring then the comparison of Donald Trump with B.O. The world doesn’t see truth and falsely blames the wrong person as truth is bent out of shape. Our world has darkened and so many are being misled believing falsely. This is global condition. We must fight this and be sanctified veil rippers constantly praying we aren’t deceived too. God has His lights shining brightly in the darkness. But we will now need to be more aware and actually tear down veils preventing God’s lights from shining brightly. Stay close to Jesus . He has angels on the case. So prayer is the key to avoid entrapment. I pray many find the lights shining in the darkness to discover truth and get saved before it is too late. We have been warned about this. A definite end times condition. It is hard for many here to understand how so many have been deceived and believe these false agendas. It’s like they have been programmed and brainwashed. They truly believe the garbage they are being indoctrinated with. This is causing a deep divide in the population now. Imagine later. It will only get worse.
Be in continued prayer. The veils of deception deepen.
