Director Mihail Roco, in the US government report, Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance, wrote of how what is coming sounds eerily similar to the Bible’s description of giving life to the image of the beast,
Humanity would become like a single, distributed and interconnected “brain” based in new core pathways in society.¼ A networked society of billions of human beings could be as complex compared to an individual being as a human being is to a single nerve cell. From local groups of linked enhanced individuals to a global collective intelligence, key new capacities would arise from relationships arising from NBIC technologies.¼ Far from unnatural, such a collective social system may be compared to a larger form of biological organism.¼ We envision the bond of humanity driven by an interconnected virtual brain of the Earth’s communities searching for intellectual comprehension and conquest of nature.”
Another tech driven issue connected to religious types that will comprise the “soulless” armies of the Beast involves a more exotic concept (albeit one that I believe is not without historical precedence) concerning the near-future genetic alteration of humans.
This is a spooky thought, really, but one that is commanding more and more consideration from thoughtful prophecy expositors who suspect that the reason those last-days destroyers of born-again believers will act with such inhumanity is that they may be, well, not altogether human any longer.
Because I’ve taken considerable time in some of my books like Forbidden Gates and The Milieu to outline the historical activity of ancient Watchers (fallen angels) and their genetic creation known as Nephilim (as well as the resemblance of their activity with modern transhumanist goals involving genetic modification of species), I will not repeat that information here. But what I will mention is that modern scientists increasingly believe genetics play a greater role in human and animal behavior than was previously believed, and that this may include a kind of “evil genetic combination” that leads to lower inhibitions involving criminal activity and murder.
In an article for Florida State University actually titled “The Evil Gene,” Frank Stephenson considers research from his university as well as the University of Connecticut, where scientists are analyzing the DNA of spree killers. The first line in Stephenson’s paper suggests what the professors are looking for when it asks: “Could a monster be swimming in the human gene pool?” The good researcher approaches his study from a Darwinian foundation, nevertheless stating:
In ascending the evolutionary ladder, humans obviously failed to inherit from their hairy forebears inhibitions against using lethal force against members of their own species. The bizarre “ghoul factor” of sadistic psychopaths like [Ted] Bundy aside, humans’ historic willingness to slaughter each other wholesale in war and genocide offers compelling evidence to some scientists that in the genome of some humans lies a fully armed biochemical code for the gamut of aggression, from kicking the dog to killing the wife.
In tandem with Stephenson’s alternate worldview speculation about an evil “biochemical code,” recent years have produced considerable advances in DNA research, with one of the more popular new fields called behavioral epigenetics. This is the “darling of genetic studies,” my biologist friend Sharon Gilbert tells me. It seeks to examine and understand the role that genetics play in shaping animal and human behavior, cognition, personality, and mental health. Epigenetics may occur during life or begin in the womb when chemical changes brought on by the mother’s activity affect the genetics—and thus perhaps the future behavior—of the child. That these modifications may become heritable and passed from one generation to the next has some scientists wondering if “evil genetics” or toxic combinations of specific genes may be linked to aggression and antisocial behavior in the succeeding generations of some families. If so, this raises an intriguing question I will not develop here having to do with bloodlines and a second question that I will pose regarding the potential for a blueprint or “special” genetic combination that could exist in which individuals can be programmed or reprogrammed to act in defiance of normal human consciousness (having a soul). This appears to have been the estate of those Nephilim I already mentioned, which are depicted in ancient records as bloodthirsty, violent enemies of God’s people who never once had a conflict of consciousness or sought forgiveness for their brutality. Genetically engineered with a specific cellular combination by powerful fallen angels (whom the Bible calls Watchers and the Sumerians called “flying geniuses”), these remarkable living constructs, not made in the image of God, were specifically designed for demonic inhabitation.

But did the Nephilim also represent a repeatable, dark, molecular model?
Given that Jesus said in Matt. 24:37 that the end-times would witness a return to the activity that happened when Nephilim first walked the earth, and today for the first time since those days men have intentionally set out to genetically modify plants, animals, and humans, is it possible that we have entered a reprise of the “days of Noah” in which a genetic hazard could be unleashed resulting in a global pandemic, a Nephilim-virus!?
There are numerous scenarios—all based on real science—that envision an “event” that could, in effect, modify epigenetics worldwide and thus hypothetically the mind and makeup of all but those who would be protected by God. In theory, this might suddenly and effectively diminish the ability of the sufferers to feel empathy toward others. Now, if such a concept has you thinking that I’ve been watching too many zombie flicks, I am reminded of the Hollywood film I Am Legend starring Will Smith. That movie opened with a scientist announcing the cure to cancer using a genetically engineered “chimeric” vaccine that blended animal and human genetics. If you’ve seen the film, you know the “cure” results in a human form of rabies that infects and takes over the brains of people, quickly turning them into zombie-like monsters who wipe out most life on earth—an epidemiological possibility, given the scenario.
Jonathan D. Dinman, PhD, professor in the Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics at the University of Maryland, says such a zombie virus “almost exists now” and could be engineered to fully occur using the very element from Will Smith’s epic—rabies.
“Infection is nearly 100 percent lethal, i.e. it turns you into the walking dead (for a while at least),” he says, “and it causes you to change your behavior by reprogramming you to bite other people to spread the infection.”
Rabies as it is known today would only need to be slightly mutated, something that could be engineered or occur naturally, to facilitate an end-times army of soulless killers, and it is actually “the most likely to mutate into something that would be similar to a ‘zombie virus,’” says Dr. Samantha Price, a Health and Care Professions Council-registered biomedical scientist and research information coordinator for the UK Motor Neurone Disease Association.
In addition to a zombie/Nephilim virus scenario, top-level policy advisors to the United States intelligence and military communities—including the JASONs (the celebrated scientists on the Pentagon’s most prestigious scientific advisory panel)—have warned in recent years that human enhancement involving genetic alteration, either by design, accident, or bioweapon, represents a challenging if not existential risk.
In a report to the Department of Defense titled “The $100 Genome: Implications for the DoD,” the JASONs convey that rapid advances in DNA sequencing and related technologies are not only ushering in an era of precipitous genomics information and sciences, but a time when both “genotypes” and “phenotypes” could experience unpredictable deviations. An organism’s genotype is the set of genes or the “genetic blueprint” it receives from its parents, while its phenotype involves the observable characteristics—the way it looks, walks, talks, and behaves. Thus what the policy advisors to ranking officials in Washington are warning is that, as we modify nature’s genetic balance (including animals and humans), we should expect they will manifest revisions in their phenotypic expressions as well. They may begin walking differently, thinking differently, and behaving in ways no longer atypical of known creation.
That such unprecedented realities may well emerge has already been illustrated in animal-to-animal experiments, including those conducted by Evan Balaban at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where sections of brain from embryonic quails were transplanted into the brains of chickens, and the resultant chickens exhibited head bobs and vocal trills unique to quail. The implication from this field of study alone proves that complex behavior patterns can be transferred from one species to another, strongly suggesting that genetically altered humans will likely bear unintended behavior and appetite disorders that could literally produce modern “Nephilim” traits. In fact, some in government and science believe one-on-one, interpersonal malevolence by such altered humans might ultimately lead to a global Lucifer Effect and swarm violence. The seriousness of this is significant enough that a House Foreign Affairs (HFA) committee chaired by California Democrat Brad Sherman, best known for his expertise on the spread of nuclear weapons and terrorism, studied the implications of genetic modification and human-transforming technologies related to future terrorism. What the HFA found caused Congressional Quarterly columnist Mark Stencel to write in his article, “Futurist: Genes Without Borders,” that the conference “sounded more like a Hollywood pitch for a sci-fi thriller than a sober discussion of scientific reality…with talk of biotech’s potential for creating supersoldiers, superintelligence, and superanimals [that could become] agents of unprecedented lethal force.” George Annas, Lori Andrews, and Rosario Isasi were even more apocalyptic in their peer-reviewed American Journal of Law and Medicine article, “Protecting the Endangered Human: Toward an International Treaty Prohibiting Cloning and Inheritable Alterations,” when they concluded: “The new species, or ‘posthuman,’ will likely view the old ‘normal’ humans as inferior, even savages, and fit for slavery or slaughter…. It is ultimately this predictable potential for genocide that makes species-altering experiments potential weapons of mass destruction, and makes the unaccountable genetic engineer a potential bioterrorist.”
Do these situations sound to anybody besides me like formulae for the coming armies of Antichrist? At a minimum they are highly suggestive that genetic alterations could play a role in the coming war against true believers.

PROPHECY WATCHERS RAISES QUESTIONS ON “TOM HORN’S ASTONISHING RESEARCH–IS HE RIGHT ABOUT THE END!?”
A Light at the End of the Lucifer Effect?
But let me conclude with perhaps a good bit of news.
Dr. Chuck Missler was a good friend of mine—a confidant and role model to me and tens of thousands of others worldwide, who told me one day that something very good could come out of the lead-up to that period in history when true believers will be thoroughly persecuted. In fact Dr. Missler described to me that day how so many real believers have already started their exodus from institutional Christianity and are reemerging in home groups, just as the church began in the book of Acts. He went on to describe vibrant Christianity already growing outside the walls of Western religious centers, which he saw as offering hope that the true body of Christ always has and will survive and even triumph during times of persecution. Of course, he was right, and the seventh chapter of the book of Revelation is dedicated to describing a great number of people redeemed during the coming war between religionists and saints. It speaks of:
…a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues.…
who came out of the great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.…
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters; and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Rev. 7: 9–17)
The apostle Peter likewise recorded in the book of Acts that:
It shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams….
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Acts 2:17–18, 21, emphasis added)
Do these verses imply, as some believe, that the increase in persecution of true believers around the world today may simply presage an imminent, latter-day awakening…a revival in the purest sense of the word? I sure hope so. Pray so. In fact, the fear of Ragnarok-Apophis-Wormwood as it approaches earth could be the very trigger that ignites global repentance and revival/awakening. But one thing I’m certain of: Growing animosity against the children of God is a real and present danger that is only going to worsen in the immediate days ahead.
In fact, Terry James and I recently released our most important and related work ever—Antichrist and the Final Solution, which lays out how all of this is coming very soon and how the dominoes will soon begin to fall.
Between now and that climactic encounter when the supernatural battle spoken of in the Bible’s books of prophecy begins in earnest, we can expect the divide between religious and authentic Christianity to deepen. It is hard for us to imagine that in places like the United States true believers could someday be burned alive in churches, but it is happening in Nigeria now. It is hard for us to perceive that some might be beheaded, but this is a reality in Syria today. We can hardly fathom good people being crucified alive, but Pakistani Christians have been living with this nightmare now. And in the United States, in that city on a hill once listed among the safest locations on earth for Christians, a tide of anti-Christ sentiment has in only the last few years pushed this country into a category recently reserved for only those governments that restrict and criminalize expressions of real Christianity.
You can see the writing on the wall intensifying.
Unlike my grandfather’s America, if a US preacher today says on television that Jesus is the only way to heaven, he is derided by media and ignored by megachurches.
If a Christian speaks negatively about Islamism, he is branded on talk shows as “Islamaphobic.”
And astonishingly, a recent Pew Research Center poll shows 75% of evangelical Christians agree that houses of worship should be subject to government restrictions on gathering to worship at this time. How many more years will I be able to present an article like this before it is banned? One thing is sure: The tide against New Testament faith is bound to get worse, especially as we near that period called Great Tribulation. I trust you will carefully consider what I have said and perhaps use these facts to draw your own line in the sand for the coming war on true Christianity.
