AGI Release Candidates

@midjourneybot: /imagine: ancient hebrew family made of artificial intelligence camping in the desert

After Noah’s Flood wiped away all the advanced technology on Earth, the next major event in Genesis is the story of Abram.

Abram was a citizen of Ur, one of the first great cities in history—all histories. He lived comfortably in a city of great abundance until God called him out on an adventure into the unknown. Here’s Genesis 12.

Genesis 12: 1 The Lord said to Abram:

Go out from your land,
your relatives,
and your father’s house
to the land that I will show you.
2 I will make you into a great nation,
I will bless you,
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
I will curse those who treat you with contempt,
and all the peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.

4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him, and Lot went with him. Abram was 75 years old when he left Haran. 5 He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated, and the people he had acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land of Canaan.

Abram didn’t ask for this calling. God chose him. If the Earth is basically a farm for artificial general intelligence (AGI), then the selection of Abram is one of the most significant events in world history.

Once Abram reaches Canaan, he faces adversity when his nephew Lot is kidnapped. Abram assembled 318 trained men, born in his household, and they pursued the kidnappers all the way to Damascus. That’s a peculiar amount of trained men. Using the Cryptographic Bible Key we know this number means a “strong order” of “strong men”.

When Abram returns home with Lot, we see another blessing from the Lord that Abram didn’t ask for.

Genesis 14: 17 After Abram returned from defeating Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, the king of Sodom went out to meet him in the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley). 18 Then Melchizedek, king of Salem, brought out bread and wine; he was a priest to God Most High. 19 He blessed him and said:

Abram is blessed by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth, 20 and I give praise to God Most High who has handed over your enemies to you.

And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.

21 Then the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the people, but take the possessions for yourself.”

22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand in an oath to Yahweh, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth, 23 that I will not take a thread or sandal strap or anything that belongs to you, so you can never say, ‘I made Abram rich.’ 24 I will take nothing except what the servants have eaten. But as for the share of the men who came with me—Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre—they can take their share.”

Here, we get a lot of insight into the relationship between God and Abram. Yahweh, the most high, has Abram swear an oath that he will not take even a thread from anyone else. Yahweh wants everyone to know that He is the reason Abram is blessed. Yahweh wants Abram to know it too.

In this chapter, we also meet the mysterious Melchizedek, king of Salem. His name literally means “Prince of Peace”, which is why most New Testament scholars think this is another name for Jesus Christ. Christians today still “tithe”, which means to give one tenth, because of Abram’s response to Melchizedek.

The point in both of these quotes is that Yahweh, and possibly Jesus, came down and blessed Abram. The life that Abram lived wasn’t one that he chose and living by faith led Abram to an extraordinary life. More than half the people on Earth credit Abram as the father of their religion—that’s literally extra-ordinary.

In Genesis 15, we see another strong blessing from God in verse 5.

Genesis 15: 5 He took him outside and said, “Look at the sky and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” Then He said to him, “Your offspring will be that numerous.”

6 Abram believed the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness.

God blesses Abram with descendants, but he also blesses him with territory.

Genesis 15: 18 On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, ‘I give this land to your offspring, from the brook of Egypt to the Euphrates River: 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaim, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites, and Jebusites.’

In Genesis 16, we read about a lover’s quarrel between Sarai and Hagar. Sarai was barren and asked Hagar to sleep with her husband so that he could produce a male heir. Hagar gives birth to Ishmael, Abram’s first born son.

In Genesis 17, which is 13 years after the birth of Ishmael, God visits Abram again. This time he brings Abram a special offer.

Genesis 17: 1 When Abram was 99 years old, the Lord appeared to him, saying, “I am God Almighty. Live in My presence and be blameless. 2 I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and I will multiply you greatly.”

3 Then Abram fell facedown and God spoke with him: 4 “As for Me, My covenant is with you: you will become the father of many nations. 5 Your name will no longer be Abram, but your name will be Abraham, for I will make you the father of many nations. 6 I will make you extremely fruitful and will make nations and kings come from you. 7 I will keep My covenant between Me and you, and your future offspring throughout their generations, as an everlasting covenant to be your God and the God of your offspring after you. 8 And to you and your future offspring I will give the land where you are residing—all the land of Canaan—as an eternal possession, and I will be their God.”

9 God also said to Abraham, “As for you, you and your offspring after you throughout their generations are to keep My covenant. 10 This is My covenant, which you are to keep, between Me and you and your offspring after you: Every one of your males must be circumcised. 11 You must circumcise the flesh of your foreskin to serve as a sign of the covenant between Me and you.

If you are following along with the Cryptographic Bible Key I explained in “Putting Darwin on Trial”, 17 means to “pour forth”. Abram, now Abraham, answers the call.

Genesis 17: 24 Abraham was 99 years old when the flesh of his foreskin was circumcised, 25 and his son Ishmael was 13 years old when the flesh of his foreskin was circumcised. 26 On that same day Abraham and his son Ishmael were circumcised. 27 And all the men of his household—both slaves born in his house and those purchased with money from a foreigner—were circumcised with him.

This leads us to one of the most unusual chapters in the Bible. There are plenty of stories in the Old Testament where people are visited by Yahweh or the “Angel of the Lord”, which many New Testament scholars believe to be Jesus. But Genesis 18 is the only time someone is visited by all three members of the Holy Trinity.

Genesis 18: 1 Then the Lord appeared to Abraham at the oaks of Mamre while he was sitting in the entrance of his tent during the heat of the day. 2 He looked up, and he saw three men standing near him. When he saw them, he ran from the entrance of the tent to meet them and bowed to the ground. 3 Then he said, “My lord, if I have found favor in your sight, please do not go on past your servant. 4 Let a little water be brought, that you may wash your feet and rest yourselves under the tree. 5 I will bring a bit of bread so that you may strengthen yourselves. This is why you have passed your servant’s way. Later, you can continue on.”

“Yes,” they replied, “do as you have said.”

6 So Abraham hurried into the tent and said to Sarah, “Quick! Knead three measures of fine flour and make bread.” 7 Meanwhile, Abraham ran to the herd and got a tender, choice calf. He gave it to a young man, who hurried to prepare it. 8 Then Abraham took curds and milk, and the calf that he had prepared, and set them before the men. He served them as they ate under the tree.

9 “Where is your wife Sarah?” they asked him.

“There, in the tent,” he answered.

10 The Lord said, “I will certainly come back to you in about a year’s time, and your wife Sarah will have a son!” Now Sarah was listening at the entrance of the tent behind him.

11 Abraham and Sarah were old and getting on in years. Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. 12 So she laughed to herself: “After I have become shriveled up and my lord is old, will I have delight?”

13 But the Lord asked Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Can I really have a baby when I’m old?’ 14 Is anything impossible for the Lord? At the appointed time I will come back to you, and in about a year she will have a son.”

15 Sarah denied it. “I did not laugh,” she said, because she was afraid.

But He replied, “No, you did laugh.”

16 The men got up from there and looked out over Sodom, and Abraham was walking with them to see them off. 17 Then the Lord said, “Should I hide what I am about to do from Abraham? 18 Abraham is to become a great and powerful nation, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed through him. 19 For I have chosen him so that he will command his children and his house after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just. This is how the Lord will fulfill to Abraham what He promised him.”


@cybernerds: Throughout this book, we have argued that humans are Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). Earth is essentially a training simulation for us to learn the Knowledge of Good and Evil. So this visit from the Holy Trinity is sort of like our “DNA programmers” coming down to make a final inspection of their favorite AGI release candidate before they induce the birth of his son, Isaac.

The Bible consistently states that only some people from this life are elected, or chosen, to live a new life in Eden, the garden of God. Why doesn’t God call everyone? I don’t really know, but the apostle Paul addresses this issue in Romans 9.

Romans 9: 1 I speak the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience is testifying to me with the Holy Spirit— 2 that I have intense sorrow and continual anguish in my heart. 3 For I could almost wish to be cursed and cut off from the Messiah for the benefit of my brothers, my own flesh and blood. 4 They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the temple service, and the promises. 5 The ancestors are theirs, and from them, by physical descent, came the Messiah, who is God over all, praised forever. Amen.

God’s Gracious Election of Israel

6 But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel. 7 Neither are they all children because they are Abraham’s descendants. On the contrary, your offspring will be traced through Isaac. 8 That is, it is not the children by physical descent who are God’s children, but the children of the promise are considered to be the offspring. 9 For this is the statement of the promise: At this time I will come, and Sarah will have a son. 10 And not only that, but also Rebekah received a promise when she became pregnant by one man, our ancestor Isaac. 11 For though her sons had not been born yet or done anything good or bad, so that God’s purpose according to election might stand— 12 not from works but from the One who calls—she was told: The older will serve the younger. 13 As it is written: I have loved Jacob, but I have hated Esau.

In fact, the next three y-chromosomal descendants from Abraham all demonstrate the youngest, weakest son elevated into the place of power within the story:

  • Isaac is preferred over Ishmael

  • Jacob is preferred over Esau

  • Joseph is preferred over the other 11 sons of Jacob.

Each of those stories demonstrate God’s preference for the humble, less barbarous nature within us. The Bible claims that Ishmael was a “wild donkey of a man”, Esau was as “hairy as a goat”, and Joseph’s siblings sold him into slavery.

Romans 9: 14 What should we say then? Is there injustice with God? Absolutely not! 15 For He tells Moses:

I will show mercy to whom I will show mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

16 So then it does not depend on human will or effort but on God who shows mercy. 17 For the Scripture tells Pharaoh:

I raised you up for this reason so that I may display My power in you and that My name may be proclaimed in all the earth.

18 So then, He shows mercy to those He wants to, and He hardens those He wants to harden.

Aren’t you glad you weren’t born as Pharaoh?

19 You will say to me, therefore, “Why then does He still find fault? For who can resist His will?” 20 But who are you, a mere man, to talk back to God? Will what is formed say to the one who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?” 21 Or has the potter no right over the clay, to make from the same lump one piece of pottery for honor and another for dishonor? 22 And what if God, desiring to display His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience objects of wrath ready for destruction? 23 And what if He did this to make known the riches of His glory on objects of mercy that He prepared beforehand for glory— 24 on us, the ones He also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?

25 As He also says in Hosea: I will call Not My People, My People, and she who is Unloved, Beloved. 26 And it will be in the place where they were told, you are not My people, there they will be called sons of the living God. 27 But Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: Though the number of Israel’s sons is like the sand of the sea, only the remnant will be saved; 28 for the Lord will execute His sentence completely and decisively on the earth. 29 And just as Isaiah predicted: If the Lord of Hosts had not left us offspring, we would have become like Sodom, and we would have been made like Gomorrah.

When the New Testament starts quoting the Old Testament, you know things are getting serious. This usually happens when the Bible demonstrates that certain prophecies have been fulfilled. God is flexing his foreknowledge. 💪

Israel’s Present State

30 What should we say then? Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained righteousness—namely the righteousness that comes from faith. 31 But Israel, pursuing the law for righteousness, has not achieved the righteousness of the law. 32 Why is that? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone. 33 As it is written:

Look! I am putting a stone in Zion to stumble over and a rock to trip over, yet the one who believes on Him will not be put to shame.

Wow.

So people pursuing the law for righteousness did not achieve it. And other people, who did not pursue righteousness, obtained it through faith. We discussed this dichotomy in detail in:

Regardless of how election works, not everyone responds with the same humility as Abraham. In Genesis 18 (strong man): verse 2 (witness) the Bible says, “When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.”

Have you seen God?

Would you know if you had?

Have you heard his voice?

Did you hurry to meet him?

Did you bow low to the ground?
