Instead of choosing between a judge or a jury, soon you may be choosing between a judge or Artificial Intelligence.
AI News reported, “In the Federal Judiciary’s year-end report, US Chief Justice John Roberts addressed the potential impact of AI on the judicial system. In particular, he aimed to quell concerns about the obsolescence of judges in the face of technological advancements. Roberts expressed legitimate concerns about the potential drawbacks of AI in the legal domain. He warned against the possibility of AI-generated fabricated answers or “hallucinations,” citing instances where lawyers used AI-powered applications to submit briefs that referenced imaginary cases.
Roberts [also] acknowledged the positive aspects of incorporating AI in the legal system. He recognized AI’s potential to democratize access to legal advice and tools, particularly benefiting those who cannot afford legal representation.
Not the Bee posted an article titled, It begins: England’s ancient legal system to integrate AI in rulings.
England’s 1,000-year-old legal system – still steeped in traditions that include wearing wigs and robes – has taken a cautious step into the future by giving judges permission to use Artificial Intelligence to help produce rulings.
The country’s Courts and Tribunals Judiciary, somewhat understanding the Brave New World it is about to step into, said that Artificial Intelligence “could help write opinions,” but the regulators said the technology “shouldn’t be used for research or legal analyses” because AI can still “fabricate information and provide misleading, inaccurate and biased information.”
AI is a noteworthy trend we follow because it is what we expect to be happening from our plain sense futurist reading of the Bible.
What is it about AI that connects it to Bible prophecy? Here are two things:
First – In Daniel 12:4 there is a prophecy that at “the time of the end” “knowledge shall increase.” When human knowledge is growing exponentially, it is a strong indicator of the End Times. AI is blowing-up knowledge like never before. So much so that its creators are afraid it will soon surpass our knowledge and think for itself.
Second – In the Book of the Revelation, a false prophet oversees the making of something called The Image of the Beast (i.e., the antichrist). “He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed” (13:15). I’m not saying it is, but AI could very well be what empowers this image. I mean, it sounds like a terminator.
We monitor biometrics, cashless commerce, the manipulation of human DNA, global government, the exponential growth of human knowledge, one-world religion, instantaneous global communication, the rise in popularity of the occult, a falling-away from the faith in Christendom, and the rebirth of national Israel.
All of these are increasingly trending in the news – just as you’d expect.
We live in the Church Age, between the first coming of Jesus and His return to establish and rule the Kingdom of God on earth. His return will be preceded by a seven year time of incredible trouble upon the earth. Most commonly it is called the Great Tribulation, but the prophet Jeremiah calls it the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. It is a reminder that God will use that time to reveal Himself to unbelieving Israel. By the end of the seven years all Israel will be saved.
Jesus promised His Church, “I… will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth” (Revelation 3:10).
He keeps us entirely out of the 7yr Great Tribulation by raising deceased Church Age saints, then rapturing “we who are alive and remain.”
When? The return of the Lord for us is imminent. It could happen any time. Nothing needs to occur before Jesus can come for us.
Are you ready for the rapture? If not, Get ready; Stay ready; Keep looking up.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
“When in the end that church will suddenly be caught up from this, then it is said, ‘There will be tribulation such as not been since the beginning, nor will be.’ ”
Irenaeus (AD130-202), Against Heresies 5.29
