With the rapid development of technology and the growing interest in Transhumanism, many have started to wonder how it may relate to Bible prophecy.
Is it possible that the Bible prophesied the rise of transhumanism?
Transhumanism is a philosophical, scientific, and essentially religious movement that seeks to merge humans with emerging technology, such as brain chips and genetic engineering. By doing so, transhumanists believe that we can enhance our intellectual and physical capacities; transcend our biological limitations, including death; and create a more evolved species they call the "posthuman.
"While this may seem like wacky science fiction, transhumanism is actively being pursued by prominent scientists and global elites, and is actually a vital component of the "Great Reset" proposed by Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF). Schwab argues that the Fourth Industrial Revolution will lead to "a fusion of our physical, digital, and biological identities," forcing us to re-examine "what it means to be human."
In fact, the globalists have already begun their pursuit of merging humans with technology through the administration of COVID-19 injections, although few people realize it. Some of these injections incorporate transhumanist technologies, such as nanotechnology and genetic engineering, providing a pathway for future modifications to human DNA.
Transhumanism and the Mark of the Beast
Many proponents of transhumanism advocate for the modification of human DNA to achieve their goals of enhancing humans and ultimately creating posthumans. Some have also proposed implanting chips that are linked to one's digital identity, which could further integrate technology into the human body. The WEF recently stated that "technology will become more intertwined with the body in the form of implants."
These proposals are very interesting in light of the Mark of the Beast prophecy. As many are aware, implants have the potential to fulfill the mark in the hand or forehead, as described in Revelation 13:16-17. However, there is another intriguing characteristic of this mark that could also relate to transhumanism.
According to Revelation 14:10-11, accepting the mark of the beast is a fateful decision with eternal consequences, rendering the recipient unredeemable. Bible scholars have long wondered how the acceptance of the mark could result in eternal damnation, and whether a mere chip implant is enough to fulfill this characteristic. Could it be possible that transhumanism will modify humans genetically to such an extent in the near future that they are no longer created in God's image, making them beyond salvation?
