From the article below:
“The company’s strategy is for a “remote-controlled flying drone armed with a taser,” EFF reported. Prelude to Revelation’s fifth trumpet?“
But it warned, “For many, many reasons, this is a dangerous idea. Armed drones would mission-creep their way into more every-day policing. We must oppose a process of normalizing the arming of drones and robots.”
Like everything else remote, they can be hacked!
I’m sure the real fifth trumpet’s critters will be much more terrifying than drones. It will be like five months of the walking dead because everyone will seek death but can’t fine it! The fifth trumpet is the first of three WOES!
KJV(i) 1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. 7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. 12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
KJV(i) 1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: 2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied. 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. 10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. 12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. 14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, 15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. 16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. 17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen
The accounts of a blessing, with which Henoch blest righteous and elect ones, who will be present on a day of distress, to remove all the enemies; and righteous-ones will be saved.
And taking up his parables, he spoke: Henoch, a righteous human whose eyes were opened by God, who had the vision of the Holy-One and of the heavens, which he showed to me.
And I heard everything from the words of the watchers and all the holy-ones; and as I heard everything from them, I also understood what I saw. And it is not for this generation that I expound, but I utter things about a generation which is distant.
And now I say things about the elect-ones, and I take up my parable about them. And the Great Holy-One will come forth from his dwelling, and the God of the Age will walk and from that place upon the earth upon the Sinai mountain.
And he will appear out of his camp, and he will appear in his strong power, and he will shine in his might from the heavens of the heavens. And all will be filled-with-fear, and the watchers will quake and they will seek to hide themselves in all the ends of the earth.
All the ends of the earth will be shaken, and trembling and great fear will seize them even to the ends of the earth. And high mountains will be shaken and will fall and will be broke apart, and high hills will be made low so that the mountains may flow away and melt like wax from the face of a fire in a flame.
And the earth will be split-asunder with a rent tear, and everything, as much as is upon the earth, will perish, and there will be a judgment upon all and upon all the righteous ones. And he will make his peace with the righteous-ones, and there will be protection and peace over the elect-ones, and mercy will be upon them.
Because Behold! He is coming with tens-of-thousands of his holy-ones, to make a judging against all, and to cause all the impious-ones to perish, and he will convict all flesh in regard to all the works of their impiety which they impiously-committed, and in regard to all the proud and hard discourses which impious sinners uttered against him.
Come out of Babylon for her judgement is near!
