Technology brings images of Holocaust survivors to life


Fox News: Max Glauben was 17 and had already lost his mother, father and brother at the hands of the Nazis when U.S. troops rescued him while he was on a death march from one German concentration camp to another.

The recollections of the Dallas resident who as a Jew in Poland survived the Warsaw Ghetto and Nazi concentration camps are now being preserved in a way that will allow generations to come to ask his image questions. Glauben, who turns 91 on Monday, is the latest Holocaust survivor recorded in such a way by the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation .

The Los Angeles-based foundation has recorded 18 interactive testimonies with Holocaust survivors over the last several years, and executive director Stephen Smith says they’re in a “race against time” as they work to add more, seeking both a diversity in experiences and testimonies in a variety of languages. more …

Opinion: Technology is advancing into areas that are both a blessing and, in some cases, laying the groundwork for prophecy to be fulfilled.

Yesterday my wife/Editor asked if I ever considered that the “resurrected” Antichrist could be a hologram. That was a few hours before finding this headline:

“And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast” Revelation 13:3.

Revelation 13:1-10 identifies the final world ruler in full control of the nations. In verse 3, an assassination by a mortal head wound gives the world a counterfeit resurrection and identifies Satan, the dragon who gives power to the beast.

This is what Satan and his counterfeit christ desire most, to be worshiped (Isaiah 14:14). Every unbeliever in the world will be amazed and follow his every command. “Who is like the Beast? Who is able to make war with him?” they will say.

Fast forward to Revelation 13:11. John introduces a second-in-command in the form of a high-ranking clergy (two horns like a lamb) who spoke like a lion (with great authority).

This second beast will have all the authority of the first beast Rev. 13:12.

“He causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” Revelation 13:12

Now here is where Editor’s question comes in:

” … And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 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”Revelation 13:14-15

It is that image, or in this case a possible hologram, that could appear to be standing right in front of a person, making daily worship mandatory and monitored.

As the famous tag line from the 1970’s “Six Million Dollar Man” once said “We have the technology”.

BTW, my response to Editor was that her idea was fascinating, but we would have to give it more study.
