Pastor Dean Dwyer warns of the direction of “Man’s Quest for Immortality”

1 Thessalonians 5:1-5 KJV – “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Man’s Quest For Immortality: Attempting To Replant The Tree Of Life With Technology
  • The quest for upgrading mankind and creating super-intelligence (and an inferred godhood) is an ancient belief. In its contemporary form, mankind believes it has finally found the key to eternal life through advanced computer technology.
  • Yuval Noah Harari, an acolyte of the World Economic Forum, believes “History began when humans invented gods, and will end when humans become gods.”
  • Yuval Noah Harari believes that physical death is simply a technical problem that will yield to medical advances within the next hundred years.
  • Harari and his cohort believe they are replanting the tree of life in technical form – but we know that Jesus Christ has defeated death
  • When you consider the history of mankind, it becomes evident that humanity’s efforts to achieve divinity do not lead to something superhuman, but they lead to something terrifyingly subhuman. The more they try to elevate themselves, the more they sink into violence and tyranny – as was horrifically demonstrated in the 20th century
  • Though people equate life with only the life we live on this Earth, we will exist for all eternity in one of two places – God’s eternal realm or the Lake of Fire. No technology can spare you from ultimately making the decision as to where you will spend eternity.

The Concept of Eternity

I know I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but this is one time I don’t mind sounding like a broken record.  One day, this life will be over.  Whether we go to meet Jesus, or He comes to meet us in the glorious rapture, this life, as we know it, will be over.  Then, we will live forever somewhere.  We will live forever because we are made in the image of our Father God, who is Spirit.  And so are we  a spirit that lives in a physical body  and possesses a soul (mind, will, emotions).  Though the physical body will perish, we will have a resurrected one! 

We are eternal beings, and we will live forever.  Doesn’t that sound absolutely astonishing?  In the natural realm, we see life as being born, living 70 or 80 years, and dying (end of story).  But that’s not the end of the story!  The story goes on forever. 

But we are created with our own free will – to make a decision in this life – of where we will spend eternity.  Yet, many put the emphasis on this life only and get trapped by its many alluring pleasures, or should I say the pursuit of its pleasures. 

Oh how foolish we are!  And how great was the plan of our enemy, satan, to make everything in this life so enticing and so all-consuming!  He tried the same thing with Jesus, our Redeemer.  “Look over here, Jesus… I’ll give you everything you see if you just worship me”…to which Jesus replied “get behind me, satan!”  Would to God that we could do the same when satan comes with his temptations to entice us to focus on this life only.

The Bible says that if it was this life only in which we had hope, we would be miserable.  But God knew that, and that’s why he made a way for us to have everlasting life through Jesus. 

Today is the day of salvation!  Today is the day you can make that decision to give your life, your very short life, here on this earth to God so that you can have eternal life with Him in heaven.

Pray this prayer with me:

“God, I know that I have sinned against you and I am deserving of punishment. But Jesus took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. I turn from my sinful life now and with your help, I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness – and for the gift of eternal life in Heaven! Amen!”
