Greetings to each of you from Steve and Sandy Aholt,
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord comes:” Acts 2:20.
We have witnessed another act that God set into motion. The promise of “that great and notable day” remains yet unfulfilled. God is faithful and true! He is coming soon.
We just read this shocking article about Artificial Intelligence (AI): “Young people are particularly drawn to artificial intelligence. Some will tell you that they can get an answer more quickly from Google or Alexa than they can from God. Who needs God in an age of artificial intelligence? Who needs an invisible God? And Google or Alexa may tell you what you want to hear in Technicolor, 3-D, and instantaneously!” We are warned about “a falling away first” in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. But the end is not yet!
The UK Daily Express science news article reads, “Humans will one day worship artificial intelligence (AI) as if it was a god . . . .” Google admits that they want to be like the mind of God and suggests we will be “godlike.” An ex-Google engineer has created the first church of AI and is “raising a god” that “will head a religion called Way Of The Future (WOTF), which will eventually have a gospel called “The Manual”, rituals and even a physical place of worship, . . . his robot god will take charge of its human “esteemed elders” as we relinquish our power to a creation with far more intelligence than our own.”
“Our God does great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number” (Job 9:10). O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out (Romans 11:33)! Multitudes are scattered as sheep having no shepherd (Matthew 9:36).
We have resolved this new year to strive daily to bring one person to the saving knowledge of Christ each month. We are striving against the god of this world who has blinded the minds of them that believe not the truth of God’s word. Please pray that individuals will see and follow the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, that will guide them to hope and safety.
Pray also as we wait upon more translated lessons of The Roots Of Faith material to be completed. This will allow us to do the proofreading and editing that God has enabled us to do. Please pray for wisdom for the interpreters and for our wisdom to properly proofread and edit these lessons.
Health: Sandy’s eyes have continued to remain with only slight field of vision changes. Her pressures were slightly higher. She goes again for another evaluation this Spring. Steve is having pain again in his right thumb. He has been diagnosed with De Quervain’s tenosynovitis. This is a painful condition affecting the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist. He will be going for outpatient surgery today. Thank you for your prayers for his recovery from this.
Listening for the trump and praying,
Steve and Sandy Aholt
