Going back just a way in my personal history, I’ll divulge my one-time wanting more than anything to be a cape-wearing, soaring superhero. In that regard, there’s a photograph somewhere in the family archive of myself, Pappy, and David all wearing capes (towels). All three of us were about 6, I think—the age when I was saved in the Seventh Street Tabernacle Church on the corner of Seventh and Derby in Pekin, Illinois.
Superman was the rage in the “funny books” (my sons mock me now for using that term for comic books). We studied the Man of Steel and wanted more than anything to fly and perform super feats of strength. Sometimes it got us in trouble –like when we jumped from places higher than were safe for mere mortals with towels affixed around necks.
So Pappy, David, and I proved that human beings’ desire for supernatural powers must begin early in life. But what we are witnessing today is not mere child’s play. The determination has now reached the Tower of Babel level. People are determined to do things that caused the Lord God of Heaven to say the following:
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. (Genesis 1:6)
Following the Great Flood of Noah’s time, people began to multiply, and the populations grew while they moved onto the plains of Shinar. They built their cities and erected the ziggurat we call the Tower of Babel.
According to the Lord’s observation, they were apparently doing things that exhibited Lucifer’s ambitions to be God-like. The Lord, likely because they were created in His image and could achieve their ignoble ambitions, thus said: “Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech” (Genesis 11:7).
It was done, and the people, unable to communicate, scattered about the then-known earth, forming various languages, cultures, etc. God had to intervene, else rebellion would again reach antediluvian level, bringing about the Lord’s judgment and the death of most all upon the planet.
Some biblical scholars believe these post-Flood generations had tapped into dark powers from the demonic dimension and were beginning to achieve breakthroughs that were evil, not productive toward human progression God wanted for mankind.
We come up to the Lord Jesus’ words: “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24: 37).
Ladies and gentlemen, the evidence indicates that we have arrived there. We must certainly be in times like when God had to scatter the tower-builders. Humanity’s lust for God-like power manifests each and every hour of the ongoing news cycles. It is neither childlike nor mere noble aspiration that confronts us with wicked enticement to be God-like. Demonic influence more and more becomes stark reality to those with spiritual discernment.
Maybe the most egregious example of the neo-Babel tower-builders’ attempts at usurping God’s throne is found within the ambitious planning of Karl Schwab’s World Economic Forum (WEF). The following, I think, presents the indictment framing Jesus’ words “as it was in the days of Noah.”
People’s desires to expand their human capabilities will give globalists an instrument of total control over our lives.
Globalists have big dreams: to have godlike power over human beings, their reproduction, and their genetic code. Under their new buzzwords “human upgrade” or “body tuning,” they are selling their plans of providing people with chips for everyday use. With their desire to be able to rule over life, they don’t even stop at unborn children: You even want to tinker with babies’ genetic prerequisites in the womb…
As Xiao Liu wrote on the World Economic Forum (WEF) website in June 2020, “We’re entering the era of the “Internet of Bodies”: collecting our physical data via a range of devices that can be implanted, swallowed or worn.”
Apple is already boasting of a new implant in the clinical trial phase, which will grant users the ability to use their brains to control their iPhone or iPad with their thoughts. In addition, app stores are already being dreamed up for the future brain chips.
Transhumanistic God Playing
WEF advisor and transhumanism thought leader Yuval Noah Harari even goes one step further. He dreams of an “anti-virus program for the mind” to drive out negative – and probably also critical – thoughts from people. Then, in the future, Harari believes, “bioengineers will take the old Sapiens body, and intentionally rewrite its genetic code, rewire its brain circuits, alter its biochemical balance, and even grow entirely new limbs. They will thereby create new godlings, who might be as different from us Sapiens as we are different from Homo erectus.” So basically, in less than half a century, Cyborgs will replace humanity.
In this world of machine-made elite gods, conventional, ordinary people without such “upgrades” only appear as a herd of cattle to be controlled and ruled over. Even human reproduction is to be controlled; the beautiful and rich can choose their desired children from the test tube. In any case, Harari doesn’t think much of humans. As he explains, there is no scientific evidence that sapiens, unlike pigs, have a soul. Transhumanists want to overcome humanity and cement their power. Sadly, people’s desires to expand their human capabilities will give globalists an instrument of total control over our lives.

Getting back to Pappy, David, and my 6-year-old self, it seems our own desire for superpowers were something the globalist masters believe mankind can now achieve.
WEF agenda contributor Kathleen Phillips, in a blog post titled, “Augmented tech can change the way we live,” writes:
Superheroes have been dominating big and small screens for a while, but there’s a subtle change happening. Many children expect to develop superpowers themselves. These expectations may sound unattainable, but we’re already making the first strides towards an “augmented society.””, but only with the right support and vision.
The support the globalist masters need is that which will be given by the Antichrist regime during the Tribulation.
Let us be thankful that it is God, not the minions from the dark dimension, who has ultimate power and control over things to come. He tells us in His Holy Word the one and only way to be kept from that hour of absolute wickedness that is about to burst upon this rebellious earth –thus to be kept from His judgment and wrath.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)
I had a cape too–superman–when I was a child! How interesting you chose this message Terry–Last week I google spell-checked antediluvian because I was thinking of the pre-flood epoch when Noah lived.The Bible says these times will be like it will be at the end-times. In those days evidently man was mingling the human dna with that of the animal. Could it be a ‘biological thing’ why anyone who receives the ‘mark of the beast’ will lose their Salvation? They’re no longer human, instead they’re trans-human. They become unredeemable because they’re not human any more. In the book of Daniel we’re told mankind will attempt to mix clay with metal–or human and machine. What you’ve suggested which is underway in science & tech is happening with the Ai, dna and gene splicing. Is the mixing of humanity and machine what the Bible is talking about? People can’t be saved because they’re no longer human–their trans-human?
Forgot to say ‘Merry Christmas’ too!!
Come Lord Jesus.
