News Roundup & Comment

Synopsis: Below are some of the highlights from Jim’s look at news events from our nation and around the world. Stories included:

Israeli and U.S. leaders reacted to what some are calling an unprecedented call by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for new elections in Israel. Schumer wants elections so Israeli citizens can replace the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Israeli Defense Forces aided an international, non-profit organization in evacuating nearly 70 orphans from Gaza and transferring them to safety in Bethlehem in the biblical region of Judea and Samaria.

The Israeli Cabinet convened earlier today to discuss the response of Hamas who is shifting their demands in a new hostage swap offer.

The Biden administration is poised to issue a fresh sanctions waiver for Iran that will grant them access to upwards of ten billion dollars in frozen assets.

With all of his influential critics dead, jailed or in exile, Russian President Vladimir Putin was due to win a controversial presidential contest cementing his role as the nation’s longest running leader since Joseph Stalin.

Leaked Kremlin documents have shown that it wants Putin to win 80% of the vote on a high turnout and to prove that Russians support his war in Ukraine.

Ukrainian drone attacks halted 3 oil refineries deep within Russian territory in an assault Russian President Vladimir Putin said was aimed at disrupting the presidential elections.

A drone attack in Odessa, Ukraine, resulted in the tragic deaths of 12 individuals including a Baptist pastor’s daughter and grandson.

On Tuesday the White House announced a 300 million dollar military aid package for Ukraine to include ammunition, anti-aircraft missiles and armor piercing weapons according to senior defense officials.

Russian President Vladimir Putin hurled his favorite “N” word at the U.S. on Wednesday as he warned of limits on how much the U.S. could support Ukraine without punishment.

French President Emmanuel Macron traveled to Berlin today to meet German Chancellor Scholz in an effort to reduce tensions over Ukraine.

Muslims took over Fifth Avenue in New York City with prayers and protests in front of Trump Tower for Ramadan.

Olivia Rodrigo, a former star actress from the Disney Channel, is promoting abortion access during her latest concert tour, working with local pro-abortion groups to distribute free abortion pills.

Vice President Kamala Harris toured a Minnesota Planned Parenthood abortion facility in a first for a president or vice-president.

Illinois Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker released a video over the weekend to celebrate what’s called, “Abortion Provider Appreciation Day”.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22:20b)

NATO Conducting Largest War Games In Recent Memory As Macron Keeps Pushing For Military Action Against Russia

As Macron calls for military action against Russia, NATO holds its largest war games in recent memory as rush to WWIII continues

French President Emmanuel Macron called President Vladimir Putin’s Russia an adversary that would not stop in Ukraine if it defeated Kyiv’s troops in the two-year-old conflict, urging Europeans to not be “weak” and to get ready to respond. “If Russia wins this war, Europe’s credibility will be reduced to zero,” Macron said in a television interview mostly directed at a domestic audience after French opposition leaders criticized his comments as bellicose. Happening right now, Exercise Steadfast Defender 24 is NATO’s largest military exercise in decades, is it preparation for WWIII?

“But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified:
for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.”
Luke 21:9 (KJV)

On this episode of the NTEB Prophecy News Podcast, there are a couple of stories circulating in the news feeds right now that should not have a lot of staying power, and yet they refuse to go away. One story is the Photoshop scandal at the Royal Palace in England, another is whether or not Emmanuel Macron’s wife was really born as a male, and the other is the prospect of an all-out war, WWIII if you will, between Europe and Russia. We will touch on the other two, but our focus today is the relentless push, primarily by Emmanuel Macron of France, to directly engage Europe with Russia with troops on the ground. Students of history understand that Russia does very well defending their homeland (just ask Napoleon and Hitler). France started out as a land called Transalpine Gaul, created during the military campaigns of Julius Caesar of Rome. This provides a tantalizing connection between modern-day France, Emmanuel Macron and the Roman city state of the Vatican. That’s how deep these end times roots go. Today we will cover the ever-increasing war drums in Europe, as well as everything you need to know, ripped from the headlines taken from around the world.

‘Technological Salvation?’:
Engaging A World Increasingly Reshaped By Artificial Intelligence

By Decision Magazine: David Holz, the founder of artificial intelligence (AI) research lab Midjourney, stated in a social media post in January that “we should be expecting a billion humanoid robots on earth in the 2040s and a hundred billion (mostly alien) robots throughout the solar system in the 2060s.”

Tesla founder Elon Musk replied, “Probably something like that, provided the foundations of civilization are stable.” At an event in October 2022, Musk said he hoped to eventually make millions of his Optimus robot, which would carry an estimated $20,000 price tag per unit. Musk said he hoped to bring the robot to market in three to five years and that once ready it will be “an extremely capable” machine. So, how are Christians to engage a world that is increasingly being reshaped by artificial intelligence? Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, discussed the impact of AI’s proliferation from a Biblical perspective with Decision.

Q: From a Biblical worldview, what are some key distinctions between artificial intelligence and human intelligence?

A: As a Christian, I think one of the most important category distinctions we have to make is between the manipulation and analysis of data and the existence of intelligence. I just don’t accept fundamentally that those are exactly the same thing. So, I will concede that computers are faster in calculation than the human mind, and that the vast powers of what is now called artificial intelligence promises to produce computations beyond our imagination that could in many ways mimic human intelligence on many tasks. It’s very important to remember that God made human beings in His image and that human intelligence is a very different thing categorically than what we would call the intelligence of any other thing. For example, animals are highly intelligent, but their intelligence is a different category than human intelligence.

And it’s not just a matter of analysis and computational ability, it’s moral knowledge. It’s the knowledge of God, it’s the ability to worship. And so, it’s really important that we keep our categories straight. I think the industry has every reason to classify AI as a form of intelligence, but that doesn’t mean that it’s intelligence in any classical sense. It could be able to use algorithms beyond our imagination to write text, to analyze text, to recognize patterns, and even to fulfill many functions that perhaps human beings have filled in the past. But I’m just not going to accept categorically that whatever this is, is rightly described as intelligence like we would describe human intelligence.
