Putin Predicts Coming Prince

One would almost think that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been pouring over prophetic Scripture in the Bible. He has predicted that the entity that becomes the ultimate leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) will rule planet earth. His is a most interesting prognostication. Here’s an excerpt from the news item laying out ol’ Vlad’s foretelling.

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin says that whoever reaches a breakthrough in developing artificial intelligence will come to dominate the world.

Putin, speaking Friday at a meeting with students, said the development of AI raises “colossal opportunities and threats that are difficult to predict now.” (Source: Putin: Leader in Artificial Intelligence Will Rule World, Houston Chronicle, 9/2/2017)

The former KGB operative turned dictator/oligarch of the nucleus of what was the Soviet Union before perestroika, glasnost, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and finally the dissolution of the U.S.S.R., said further that “the one who becomes the leader in this sphere will be the ruler of the world.”

The Russian warned that “it would be strongly undesirable if someone wins a monopolist position.” He pledged that Russia would share its know-how in artificial intelligence with other nations.

Putin predicted that drones will fight future wars. He said, “When one party’s drones are destroyed by drones of another, it will have no other choice but to surrender.”

The Putin prediction would be amusing, if not so much on the eerie side—kind of like Gog of Ezekiel 38–39 “prophesying” the emergence of the prince that shall come of Daniel 9:26–27.

We have mentioned numerous times that Vladimir Putin displays characteristics that the future leader of the Gog-Magog attack will possess, according to the prophet Ezekiel. Putin, here, is delving into perhaps not the characteristics of Antichrist, but certainly into the technological realm Revelation seems to indicate that future fuhrer will have at his disposal.

The Russian says that the leader in such advanced technology will eventually rule the world. To be sure, Antichrist is prophesied to rule over most of the world at a point during the seven-year Tribulation era. His rule will be brief and chaotic, but it will be brutal and, according to Jesus Himself, will bring a time upon the people of the planet worse than any before or after.

Artificial Intelligence will mark his despotic control. He will, through the most advanced computer (AI) technology, do the following:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16–17)

But AI is, perhaps, prophesied to go much deeper than Antichrist’s 666 computer controls. Some would say there will come a destructive military force that appears to be completely robotic, commanded through AI to assault Jerusalem during that time known as the Day of the Lord. It is a terrifying description of a superhuman—or perhaps hybrid or robotic—force destined to riffle the city and ravish its women, according to prophecy.

Read about what some call Joel’s Army (Joel 2: 1-11).

(I wrote a short story of a fictional nature about Joel’s Army years ago for a filmmaker. That story can be linked below.)


AI is a hot topic, causing an uproar even among some of the well-known leaders in its development.

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk got into a spat recently on Twitter with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg over the dangers of artificial intelligence.

Musk urged a group of governors to proactively regulate AI, which he views as a “fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.”

“Until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react because it seems so ethereal,” Musk said.

Zuckerberg shot back, saying fearmongering about AI is “irresponsible.” (Source: “Humanlike Robots Provoke Questions about our Humanity,” Rosalie Chan, Religion News Service)

Many scientists and futurists are declaring that from some point in the near future, major wars will be waged by beings of intelligence superior to that of mere mortals. However, Bible prophecy tells that, ultimately, it is human blood that will flow to the bridle reins following the fighting at Armageddon. It is the corpses of millions of human beings that will have to be buried following the battle of Gog and Magog.

    Wow. Thank you! Amazing connections… amazing, chilling short story. We must get the word out (the gospel) and warn those that God has placed in our paths before we/they are out of time.

    Makes you wonder about the new high-tech intelligence gathering data-center in Saudi Arabia, which DJT and a host of other leaders inaugurated in a weird ceremony of laying on of hands?!

    Ditto to what the previous posters had to say. AI wasn’t even on my “radar screen,” as we’ve been busy with the 2 hurricanes. Which, by the way, may be the Lord trying to get people’s attention. I was raised on the Gulf Coast, about 25 miles from Corpus Christi, and have been through a few tough hurricanes during that time. So, Harvey didn’t behave the way I’ve ever seen a hurricane usually does, and the same goes for Irma, even though it was a totally different type hurricane. We live in what is called Deep East Texas, and the temp outside is 58, which we’ve not seen here during the first part of September ever! And, the high has been in the very low 80’s. It’s like all of God’s creation is holding it’s breath. Another example are the birds which normally we have an abundance of, as we live on 5 1/2 acres. Normally, a summer tanager sings all day long and into the early evening. I’ve only heard 1, only occasionally, all summer long. In the Spring, we usually have several chuck-will’s widow, calling for several hours at night. This year, there was only one, and he was fairly close to the house. All this year, I’ve been noticing these things, not including all the craziness going on with Antifa creating chaos on college campuses as well as where peaceful protesters are having a march. Praying for the lost, and there are so many more now, with a lukewarm Church.

    All one must do is to read the history of Germany from about 1919 to 1945 and parallel that with the current conditions in the world especially eastern Europe, western Europe, and North America. Hitler received his power from the spiritual world just as we will when we join with eastern and western Europe to complete the beast kingdom( 3 combined into 1) by the coming world leader called Satan and his angels. We have seen the enemy and he is us.
