Facebook Inc. agreed to acquire CTRL-Labs, a technology startup that is building software to let people control a digital avatar using only their thoughts.

Back in the late 1990’s there was a Christian film series on the end times called Apocalypse, produced from the Left Behind people and released by Cloud Ten Pictures. They all had to do with life on earth after the Rapture of the Church and showed us a world in the time of Jacob’s trouble, that ends in the time known as the Great Tribulation. From a doctrinal perspective they were hit and miss at best, but they were compelling to watch because we got to see the end times acted out. The second film in the series had a fascinating plot line. It involved an entire world connected to the Internet, now controlled by the Antichrist, and his crowning achievement was giving an unsuspecting, adoring world the “Day Of Wonders”.

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15 (KJV)

The Day Of Wonders was, as you might have guessed by now, Virtual Reality. Everyone in the whole world was to be given a headset to see this incredible new world that awaited them there, but what they got when they put them on was anything but that. I won’t spoil the ending for you if you decide to go and watch the movie, and you absolutely should get a copy and see it for yourself. What would have brought a wry smile to your face a few years ago will now instill full on goosebumps when you really consider what is now happening. Take a moment and go visit the Oculus Store to see what I mean.

Facebook to Buy CTRL-Labs Startup for Controlling Computers With Your Mind

FROM YAHOO! FINANCE: Facebook, the world’s largest social network is paying between $500 million and $1 billion, according to people familiar with the deal. The closely held four-year-old startup, which has dozens of employees and has raised tens of millions in venture capital, uses a bracelet to measure neuron activity in a subject’s arm to determine movement that person is thinking about, even if they aren’t physically moving. That neuron activity is then translated into movement on a digital screen. Facebook declined to comment on the price of the acquisition.

Technology like CTRL-Labs’s may someday be a crucial part of products like augmented reality glasses, where a user might want to control a computer without the need for buttons or a keyboard. “Your hands could be in your pocket, behind you,” explained Thomas Reardon, chief executive officer of CTRL-Labs, at an industry conference last December. “It’s the intention to move, not the movement” itself that controls the avatar, he said.

The Strong Delusion

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:11,12 (KJV)

THE IS AN EXCELLENT PICTURE OF WHAT LIFE UNDER ANTICHRIST WILL LOOK LIKE

Facebook has been pushing deeper into augmented reality technology, including the development of a hands-free pair of AR glasses. In 2017, it announced a “brain-computer interface” that could someday let people turn their thoughts into actual text on a screen by monitoring signals in the brain. The CTRL-Labs technology is attempting to solve a similar problem.

“The wristband will decode those neural signals and translate them into a digital signal your device can understand,” wrote Andrew Bosworth, Facebook’s head of AR and virtual reality, in a post announcing the deal. “It captures your intention so you can share a photo with a friend using an imperceptible movement or just by, well, intending to.”

The purchase comes at a challenging time for Facebook, which is under two separate U.S. antitrust investigations. The inquiries mean any acquisition the company makes will be under intense scrutiny from regulators as they question whether Facebook is already too big and powerful.

“CTRL-Labs and Facebook are not competitors. Facebook does not currently have or make this technology,” a Facebook spokeswoman said of the deal announced on Monday, adding that the company will work with regulators to secure any needed approvals. “CTRL-Labs’s technology is an innovative input that Facebook hopes will be used to significantly improve the upcoming Facebook AR/VR experiences a few years down the road to fundamentally improve the user experience.”

New York-based CTRL-Labs has raised $67 million, according to Crunchbase, and has a high-profile list of investors, including Spark Capital, Google’s GV, Amazon.com Inc.’s Alexa Fund, and Founders Fund. CTRL-Labs employees will join Facebook’s Reality Labs team, which works on AR and VR products. READ MORE

Watch This Clip First

This is a clip from Apocalypse 2: Revelation, and the full-length movie is right below it. Watch the clip first and then make the time to watch the entire movie. 

Apocalypse 2 Revelation: The Book Has Been Opened

This is the movie that nailed it with virtual reality and the end times, and they did it way back in 1999. We hope you will watch the whole movie to see the connection the movies makes between VR technology and the Mark of the Beast

Just In Time For Saturnalia, Umm, I Mean Christmas, It’s The Holy Spirit Talking Board For You To Have A ‘Guaranteed Demon-Free’ Séance With Jesus

The Holy Spirit Board with its ‘Magic Cross planchette with metallic mirrored finish’ is straight from the pit of Hell.

I really wish this article today on the Holy Spirit Board was something from the Babylon Bee, but sadly, it is not. It’s hard to say what’s more demonic, the original Ouija board with its satanic gothic styling cues, or this one that presents Jesus in a mocking way, and drags the Holy Spirit into just for fun. The worst part is the number of Laodicean Christian churches that have already ordered it and are planning to have Fall Festival family fun nights. On sale at Amazon right now.

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” 1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJB)

This straight from the boardroom of Hell board game tells you how you can “communicate directly with Jesus Christ!” and “get all the answers straight from the man himself!”. Just for fun it comes complete with something called a ‘Magic Cross planchette’ shaped, of course, not like the biblical cross that the Romans crucified Jesus on, but styled after the Babylonian cross dating back to the rule of everyone’s favorite type of Antichrist, King Nebuchadnezzar.

This is wickedness, this is evil, and this is something that no Christian, no matter how backslidden, should have anything to do with. There is a website called ChurchLeaders.com, and they say that they are ‘dedicated to resourcing, informing, and connecting a community of church leaders for greater Kingdom impact worldwide.’ Well, they wrote a whole article on the Holy Spirit Board, including links to videos from the game manufacturer, and never once spoke a single word against it. Why not? This is where we are folks, on Day 976 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve.

Senate Republicans Side With Democrats To Help Pass The ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ That Forces States To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Twelve Senate Republicans voted with Democrats on Wednesday for the far-left ‘Respect for Marriage Act,’ which is reportedly designed to provide federal protections for same-sex and interracial marriages.

It’s one thing to get hyped up on the marketing of political parties, like the ‘Red Wave’ that wasn’t, and it’s another thing completely to wake up the next morning and face the grim reality that nothing has changed. Here we are after the Midterms, and what do we see? Senate Republicans siding with Democrats to pass the ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ that protects same-sex marriage. Yay!!! Make America Great Again!! Umm, no. America’s fate has been signed, sealed and about to be delivered. That ‘red wave’ you were expecting is actually going to be fire and blood coming down from God out of Heaven in judgement on this lost nation we live in.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:28,29 (KJB)

Just imagine for a moment that Donald Trump, who has just declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential race, wins in a landslide. Does that make America great again? No, it does not and it will not. If the ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ came across President Trump’s desk, he would absolutely sign it. How do I know that? Because in 2016 he courted the LGBTQIA+ vote like any other politician. An America that was ‘great again’ would be against those things because God is against those things. Sorry to burst your bubble, kiddies, but it’s time someone told you the truth.

12 Senate Republicans Vote With Democrats for Far-Left ‘Respect for Marriage Act’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Lawmakers voted for the measure 62-37 after a bipartisan group of senators made changes to the bill to include a clause about religious liberty. With the amendment agreed upon, the bill will go back to the House before going to President Joe Biden. The White House has expressed support for the measure.

The 12 Republicans who voted for the bill include Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Richard Burr (R-NC), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Susan Collins (R-ME), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Todd Young (R-IN).

The Respect for Marriage Act (RFMA) was introduced following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, due to Democrats’ unfounded concerns that the Supreme Court could use the Dobbs decision to overrule the Court’s Obergefell gay marriage decisionThe measure passed the House in July with the help of 47 Republicans, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) agreed to postpone a vote until after the midterms so that lawmakers from both sides of the aisle could attempt to address religious liberty concerns.

RFMA would repeal the Clinton-era Defense of Marriage Act and would require the federal government to recognize any marriage that was “valid in the place where entered into.” The bill would also require every state to recognize every same-sex marriage that “is valid in the State where the marriage was entered into.”

As a report from Slate noted, the bill “does not go as far as Obergefell. In that decision, the Supreme Court directed every state to license same-sex marriages—that is, to issue a marriage certificate to same-sex couples. The RFMA does not codify this component of Obergefell.” According to the report:

So the RFMA does not force Texas to issue a marriage certificate to a same-sex couple. But it does force Texas to recognize a marriage certificate issued to a same-sex couple by New Mexico. In a post-Obergefell world, a same-sex couple in Texas could drive to New Mexico, obtain a certificate, and force Texas to respect their marriage like any other.

The bill does have a “private right of action” clause, which would allow “any person who is harmed by a violation of subsection (b)…[to] bring a civil action in the appropriate district court of the United States against the person who violated such a subsection for declaratory and injunctive relief.” The law would also allow an attorney general to bring civil action against any person who violates the law.  READ MORE

End Times Milestone For Miss America Pageant Organization As Biological Man Brían Nguyen Is Crowned ‘Miss Greater Derry 2023’ In New Hampshire

First Biological Male Brían Nguyen Wins ‘Miss Greater Derry,’ A Beauty Pageant Held By The Miss America Organization

Since NTEB started back in 2009, we have warned you over and over again that the LGBTQIA+ Movement was a radical, militaristic movement planning to erase gender lines, and recruit children through Public School indoctrination programs. In the early days, people would write to us, mockingly deriding our assessment of this situation, calling us ‘conspiracy theory nuts’. However starting in 2020, those emails have since ceased, and now people write to us weeping over what America has become.

“Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.” Genesis 5:2 (KJB)

For the record, there are only two genders, three if you count situations where birth defects will produce a person caught in the middle, but obviously that is not another gender. It is a sobering thought to realize that that rainbow flag they march under is actually a battle flag of a people prepared for war, isn’t it? When we started in 2009, approximately 2.3% of Americans identified as LGBTQ, in 2022 that has risen to almost 8%! What could account for a near 300% increase? Recruitment of school children at every level, starting at 3-years old and all the way up to high school. We warned you this was coming, we pleaded with you to stand up and stand against this rising tide of darkness, but sadly you did not. The ‘Red Wave’ never arrived last Tuesday, but the Rainbow Wave is washing over America, drowning this nation and dragging it to the bottom of the sea. What do the Churches have to say about it?  All I hear is *crickets*, lukewarm, Laodicean crickets cowering behind the 4 walls of the church.

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16 (KJB)

Why is there no outrage as biological male is awarded local Miss America crown, why are the churches silent?

FROM EVIE MAGAZINE: Brían Nguyen became the first transgender to win a title under the Miss America Organization. He was named Miss Greater Derry 2023, landing him a crown and scholarship, as announced this past Sunday. The Miss Greater Derry Scholarship Program provides scholarships to “young women” between the ages of 17 and 24.

“My name is Brían Nguyen, I am 19 years old, and I am currently a freshman at Nashua Community College majoring in Business Management,” writes Nguyen on Instagram. The teen also mentions their initiative titled, “#QueensAreEverywhere.” “This is a media movement that helps the next generation develop self-confidence, realize their potential, and become the leaders of their destiny,” Nguyen explains.

Reactions from social media users are mixed, and some women believe that Nguyen’s win was a reflection of “internalized misogyny.” “Y’all know how the Left likes to talk about internalized misogyny?” asks @dess_ri , “This is what it ACTUALLY looks like.”

“Yes Miss America will no longer be about women. Men want to make us irrelevant,” comments @cturiano1969.

Just this week, the U.S. Court announced that Miss United States of America LLC cannot be forced to include transgenders as contestants since it would obstruct the organization’s ability to express the “ideal vision of American womanhood.” According to the ruling, they should be allowed to enforce their “natural born female rule” because the First Amendment enables them to do so.

The conclusion came after a lawsuit was filed by a transwoman named Anita Green. “I believe United States of America Miss is on the wrong side of history for choosing to actively discriminate against transgender people, but the road to creating meaningful change has always been a long and bumpy one,” Green said. “Transgender women are women. My message has always been consistent and my message is this: every person has beauty.” READ MORE
