Before I address the first part of today’s title proper, I will like to address this title first – What is the Battle Strategy against AI? + What is the Appropriate Spiritual Response to #EndSARS #EndSWAT #SideWithNigeria #EndBadGovernanaceNIGERIA?
Let us look at What is the Battle Strategy against AI?
I will like to give a brief introduction to AI – Artificial Intelligence before I proceed to the Ai I will be discussing today.
What is AI and what has that got to do with You and Me in today’s world and what must we do?
Less than a decade after breaking the Nazi encryption machine Enigma and helping the Allied Forces win World War II, mathematician Alan Turing changed history a second time with a simple question: “Can machines think?”
Turing’s paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” (1950), and it’s subsequent Turing Test, established the fundamental goal and vision of artificial intelligence.
At it’s core, AI is the branch of computer science that aims to answer Turing’s question in the affirmative. It is the endeavor to replicate or simulate human intelligence in machines.
The four different approaches that have historically defined the field of AI:
- Thinking humanly
- Thinking rationally
- Acting humanly
- Acting rationally
The first two ideas concern thought processes and reasoning, while the others deal with behavior.
AI is a computer system able to perform tasks that ordinarily require human intelligence… Many of these artificial intelligence systems are powered by machine learning, some of them are powered by deep learning and some of them are powered by very boring things like rules.
Artificial intelligence generally falls under two broad categories:
- Narrow AI: Sometimes referred to as “Weak AI,” this kind of artificial intelligence operates within a limited context and is a simulation of human intelligence. Narrow AI is often focused on performing a single task extremely well and while these machines may seem intelligent, they are operating under far more constraints and limitations than even the most basic human intelligence.
- Artificial General Intelligence (AGI): AGI, sometimes referred to as “Strong AI,” is the kind of artificial intelligence we see in the movies, like the robots from Westworld or Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation. AGI is a machine with general intelligence and, much like a human being, it can apply that intelligence to solve any problem.
Artificial Intelligence Examples
- Smart assistants (like Siri and Alexa)
- Disease mapping and prediction tools
- Manufacturing and drone robots
- Optimized, personalized healthcare treatment recommendations
- Conversational bots for marketing and customer service
- Robo-advisors for stock trading
- Spam filters on email
- Social media monitoring tools for dangerous content or false news
- Song or TV show recommendations from Spotify and Netflix
Narrow Artificial Intelligence
Narrow AI is all around us and is easily the most successful realization of artificial intelligence to date. With its focus on performing specific tasks, Narrow AI has experienced numerous breakthroughs in the last decade that have had “significant societal benefits and have contributed to the economic vitality of the nation,” according to “Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence,” a 2016 report released by the Obama Administration.
A few examples of Narrow AI include:
- Google search
- Image recognition software
- Siri, Alexa and other personal assistants
- Self-driving cars
- IBM’s Watson
Machine Learning & Deep Learning
Much of Narrow AI is powered by breakthroughs in machine learning and deep learning.
Understanding the difference between artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning can be confusing.
“Artificial intelligence is a set of algorithms and intelligence to try to mimic human intelligence. Machine learning is one of them, and deep learning is one of those machine learning techniques.”
Simply put, machine learning feeds a computer data and uses statistical techniques to help it “learn” how to get progressively better at a task, without having been specifically programmed for that task, eliminating the need for millions of lines of written code. Machine learning consists of both supervised learning (using labeled data sets) and unsupervised learning (using unlabeled data sets).
Deep learning is a type of machine learning that runs inputs through a biologically-inspired neural network architecture. The neural networks contain a number of hidden layers through which the data is processed, allowing the machine to go “deep” in its learning, making connections and weighting input for the best results.
I am a Computer Scientist and a telecommunications engineer trained by Russians and Jewish Computer Scientists.
What are the points to note here?
As at today, pretty much all or most of the technology firms have deployed AI that can think smarter and faster than humans on specialized task. When you download free apps from google play or IOS Apple devices, usually, the app will ask for permission to access your camera, microphone and a whole nine yards of access permissions. If you order American Apple, Korean Samsung, Chinese Techno or other phones, they usually already have access to all of the bells and whistles in your new device. The Chinese have advanced astronomically in the field of AI and are currently using it to monitor citizens and take critical real-time decisions.
Once you have your data turned on, they can listen on conversations in any language and also access the camera data which today’s deep learning AI will provide with little human intervention and of course interpret it. With this information and GPS turned on, the AI software will build a dossier about you which can help marketing and God knows what.
What must you do?
So, be careful with your devices – Mobile, Laptops, and Intelligent devices in your homes that have full access to the internet. If you do not need your internet data, then turn it off or turn the device off completely. If you are having sensitive conversations, turn the data off. Your information is an asset to any establishment and there are countries or governments that ask that these data be passed on to them by the technology firms that operate in their domain which can be used either for political, economic, psychological, or persecution aims. There is no need to provide ammunition to invisible enemies as we race towards the end. Social media networks are also collecting extensive data about you automatically when you interact with the app..so be careful.
AI in today’s title and the lessons for our perilous times:
The Lord led me to Joshua 8 for my devotion yesterday the 20th of October 2020. I didn’t have this text on my study title but the Spirit led me to it as it relates to current event and future events in our world and the strategies to address them from the spiritual angle.
But the AI I am talking about today is the Ai in the book of Joshua 7 and 8.
Here is a summary of the story.
In Joshua 6, God gave the battle strategy to Joshua by asking them to go around the city of Jericho once, everyday for six days in silence and on the seventh day, they should go around it seven times and shout out loud and the wall will crumble and they can go in from all directions and possess the city.
There was a condition or caveat so to speak: Do not take any loot from that city BUT all the silver and gold and the utensils of bronze and iron will be delivered to the Lord and must be brought into His treasury – Joshua 6:17-19
There was disobedience to the above command for Achan took some loot for himself, and the Lord was very angry with the entire nation of Israel because of this – Joshua 7:1
This is where Ai came into the picture:
Ai was a tiny city compared to Jericho and so Joshua decided to send 3000 (Three thousand) soldiers – and they were soundly defeated. About 36 (thirty-six) of the Israelis were killed during the attack, and many others died while being chased by the men of Ai as far as the quarries. The Israeli army was paralyzed with fear at this turn of events. Joshua and the elders tore their clothing and lay prostrate before the Ark of the Lord until evening, with dust on their heads. Joshua cried out to the Lord – bringing petitions, prayer and regrets, complaining why God brought them to the promised land to defeat them. – Joshua 7:4-9
Hear and read what God’s response was to Joshua in Joshua 7:10-15
“But the Lord said to Joshua, “Get up off your face! Israel has sinned and disobeyed my commandment and has taken loot when I said it was not to be taken; and they have lied about it and have hidden it among their belongings. That is why the people of Israel are being defeated. That is why your men are running from their enemies- For they are cursed. I will not stay with you any longer unless you completely rid yourselves of this sin.”
God gave specific instruction on what to do to rid themselves of the reproach.
Noticed here that one man sinned and the whole nation was in trouble. One man sinned and God blamed all of them for it.
God sees us as one and when we break His laws, the whole part suffers. You see this trend occur over and over again in scripture. David sinned by numbering the people without the due sacrifice as highlighted in the laws concerning the census and concerning a sacrifice that should have been given and the whole nation suffered 70,000 deaths from the death angel in one sweep- one day!
Paul also put this issue of corporate sufferings and success succinctly in
1 Corinthians 12:26
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
26 And if one member suffers, all the parts [share] the suffering; if one member is honored, all the members [share in] the enjoyment of it.
Now, in continuing our story, Joshua and Israel took care of the sin in the camp and they went for battle with Ai.
God gave a battle strategy in Joshua 8: 18, 26
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
18 Then the Lord said to Joshua, Stretch out the spear that is in your hand toward Ai, for I will give it into your hand. So Joshua stretched out the spear in his hand toward the city.
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
26 For Joshua drew not back his hand with which he stretched out the spear until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai.
For the first time, I saw that the spear was stretched towards the city throughout the entire period of the battle until the city was destroyed. All Joshua needed to do was to point the spear towards the city. That was the battle strategy.
Joshua understood this strategy well with Moses, his mentor because in Exodus 17, he saw this work. Read the account:
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
8 Then came Amalek [descendants of Esau] and fought with Israel at Rephidim.
9 And Moses said to Joshua, Choose us out men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.
10 So Joshua did as Moses said and fought with Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the hilltop.
11 When Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed; and when he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed.
12 But Moses’ hands were heavy and grew weary. So [the other men] took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Then Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side and one on the other side; so his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
13 And Joshua mowed down and disabled Amalek and his people with the sword.
What real life lessons can I draw from here looking at the events all around us?
You do not need to be a seer or prophet to know that the world is deep into troubling times now and ahead.
In fact, what I saw happening in the next 3 years – 2021, 2022 and 2023 will make the events of 2020 a joke. BUT God always have a remedy and battle strategy given in advance before the trouble begins.
I ask, “Lord, how do we handle all of these you are showing us concerning the next three years?”
Yes, I want to see but I also want solutions. So, as the Lord shows, I ask for solutions and God is gracious and will always provide solutions if we are willing and ready to obey. This inclination may be from my training as a solution provider but now applied to spiritual matters.
It was during the October 1st independence celebration that the Lord laid on my heart to start a 90 days of global Matthew 6:10 prayer and fasting calling forth His kingdom, His will in 5 realms – Self, Family, Church, Our Nation and the Nations of the World.
Like Joshua and Moses, we are to speak forth the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God over all these realms in the next 90 days to provide victory for 3 months and 3 years for His children. Declaring His kingdom and His will in the first hour of the day between 12am and 1 am which will determine outcomes for that day, this quarter of 2020 and into the next 3 years.
I share videos to help motivate you to get started when I ended the 7 days change gear retreat. That was and remains the only reason and for the sake of one person, I will continue to blow the trumpet until that one person joins the pointing of the spear to secure the next 3 years and 3 months. I pray and hope that that person is you reading this post today.
Mountain Sanderson Prayer Retreat – 20th, October 2020.
If we are going to imitate a disciplemaker, then we should imitate the right, spirit led things and not the wrong things. Read 1 Thessalonians 1:6-7; Hebrews 13:7 and 1 Corinthians 4:16 on the need for positive Spirit led imitations to fuel motivations.
We are into the 21st day of the fast. I encourage you to join in because when God speaks to one, He speaks to all. Any war general will tell you that you don’t go to war without preparation. You prepare with or without war so that when war begins, you are ready and you will not capitulate by going for a preemptive strike in the heart of the enemy territory.
I see in the Spirit that so many will give up their faith because of the trouble coming and we can’t survive reacting to events. We preempt the attack on the real enemy before he takes any action or take back what was stolen by enforcing Gods agenda in all the realms. That is what the 90 day’s prayer and fasting are all about. I have not done 90 days of fasting before but I know the voice I heard in my spirit and I am determined to obey to the later. 2020 is a dress rehearsal for the next 3 years for us to dig deeper roots in God and stand on His side because therein Psalm 91 becomes effective to us.
This is not the first time I have embarked on a spiritual exercise like this one. We saw in 2010 what the enemy was planning and the Lord sent me around the country in the cause of 12 days, covering 7000 KM to spread the word of prayer for revival and to avert or diminish the Boko Haram onslaught on our land – Prayer a day for 12 months and repeated for 3 years. Started in 2010 and ended in 2012. At the beginning of 2010 when the instruction was given, I didn’t even know who Boko Haram was. But before the end of 2010, we all knew we were in for a long battle against terrorism.
The Rhema word of God spoken over the circumstances is like a spear pointed to the city until victory is assured – the city is the 5 realms, you inclusive. When we do our part, He divinely orchestrate outcomes that is in line with His kingdom and His will on earth. The arm of flesh will fail us and cursed on us, the Lord says, if we put our trust in man – Jeremiah 17:5 for by flesh shall not man prevail – 1 Samuel 2:9. Let us avoid fleshy solutions to deep rooted spiritual problem requiring spiritual solutions.
We are not wrestling against flesh and blood but principalities and powers that is set to abort God’s ordained agenda – Ephesians 6:12. We must not be found fueling the flame of our arch enemy – satan
Let me show you how this sword of the Spirit pane out with circumstances around us as we draw from scripture as follows:
- Isaiah 11:4
But with righteousness He will judge the poor,
And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth;
And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
3.2 Thessalonians 2:8
Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength.
“And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write:The One who has the sharp two-edged sword says this:
Therefore repent; or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of My mouth.
A word is good enough for the wise Proverbs 15:14
Now let us look at the title today : God’s Greatest Assignment for You and Me IS? How to Deliver a Miracle – The Five (5) Steps that Leads to a Miracle Delivery – 6 of 14
10 days ago, we dealt with the five miracle-related signals which are: a nudge, a cue, a bump, a prompt and an alert.
Today, we look at 5 steps that lead to a miracle delivery. Remember, people are Gods greatest assets. God is looking for highly motivated people who can be miracle agents in the miracle mission field of life.
We said, so much prayers go up to heaven making request and very few are ready to be servants, to be the agent God can use to meet these seas of demands coming up to Him.
What are the five steps?
For a personal miracle to take place, we must have
- A person (The recipient of the miracle)
- A need (The purpose for any personal miracle)
- An open heart (The place where a personal miracle is completed)
- A Delivery agent (The means for getting the miracle where it is needed)
- God (The person who does the miracle and receives the credit)
As motivated delivery agents, we can get from these basic elements of a miracle to a job description in no time. For example, the five parts suggest a series of steps we can follow to partner with God successfully.
The steps are universal, learnable, repeatable and aligned with how Heaven actually works in a miracle situation.
We call them the Five Steps for Delivering a Personal Miracle:
- Identify the person.
- Isolate the need.
- Open the heart.
- Deliver the miracle.
- Transfer the credit.
When we put these elements in the order in which most miracles unfold, we have a set of action steps that we can learn and use. All five steps play important role in every personal miracle.
We will take on the above 5 steps in more detail by Sunday, and Until then, remain blessed, remain Joyful, and remain in Peace which only Christ provides! Amen
