Book of Revelation
The Shinar Directive – Part 12
Plato, Transhumanism, and the Antichrist’s Strange Army
By Michael K. Lake, Th.D.
In the book of Revelation, we have several glimpses of various groups that follow the Antichrist. To understand all that we are seeing in the book of Revelation, we need to understand how the Elite plans to divide up the inhabitants of the earth. I believe their blueprint is something very comparable to Plato’s Republic.
In this book, Plato postulates his version of the perfect society. This society is comprised of three groups of people:
1. The benevolent Elite, who are filled with great wisdom on how to govern this ultimate republic
2. The citizens/worker drones, who labor to produce what the Elite decree is necessary for this republic
3. The military/police force, which keeps the citizens in line and under the control of the Elite
In my new book The Shinar Directive I provide a hypothesis on how Plato’s Republic ties into what is being accomplished in transhumanism and how it works into the book of Revelation. (Remember, we are all still seeing “through a glass darkly.”)
The Elite: The Elite will enhance their minds and bodies to include achieving immortality. They will become like demigods (or posthumans).
The workers: The Elite will provide some of these benefits to regular members of society to overcome the cost of illness and, therefore, overcome periodic reduction in production of what they need. There will be sufficient modification to the DNA of the workers to remove the image of God within (i.e., mark of the Beast), thereby removing all concepts of right and wrong. The standard worker will not be able to afford the gift of immorality, but will have to settle for an extended life span, which will be extremely disease resistant. Some form of mind control or hive mind will most likely be included in the enhancements.
The military force: The Elite’s enforcers will be given more powerful bodies with greater life spans than the worker class and will have a perfected version of unbreakable mind control/hive mind installed. These military forces will be nearly impossible to kill, but will meet their end at the Valley of Armageddon.
And if this sounds too fantastic to be true, check out these couple of headlines at Raiders News Update just this week (if you follow Raiders you know they have been documenting the move toward transhumanism by DARPA, the Pentagon, the Department of Defense etc):

In fact the new SkyWatchTV will begin broadcasting soon after this article goes online and several of the first shows will be with me and Dr. Horn thoroughly discussing how quickly the so-called Hybrid Age is coming. When these developments are viewed through the lens of the book of Revelation, it all makes sense. All three classes of the coming Plato’s Republic could have received the mark of the Beast and have had their DNA changed. With elements of mind control installed within both the worker class and the military class, the world becomes “of one mind,” just like in the story of the Tower of Babel. The Elite will finally unify the entire planet toward completing the unfinished work of Nimrod.
But of course we also see in Revelation that one class of these new citizen-types are tormented in Revelation 9 by a transgenic horde. Death seems to flee from them, and they cannot die. They may also be the same segment of society that is thrown alive into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 19:20).
Furthermore, not all who receive the Mark of the Beast are immortal. Later, in Revelation 9, four angels are loosed (most likely Watchers) who either bring their own two-hundred-million-member army with them, or they take command of the transgenic army that was released earlier in the chapter. This army slays one-third of the population on the planet.
Then we find in Revelation 17:8:
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
It is clear from this Scripture that the one who ascended out of the pit is the Antichrist/Nimrod, and in my new book and on the upcoming SkyWatchTV shows I postulate how after receiving a deadly head-wound there is reason to believe genetic breakthroughs are used to "heal" him and he too becomes transgenic as did the original Nimrod (who the Bible says "began to be a Gibborim" (Gen 10:8).
Finally, you have a class of citizens whose names are not written in the Book of Life. Does this reflect the same estate as the original Nephilim (human-angel-animal chimeras) who also are not in the book of life and cannot be saved? Let us first examine what Dake says about the Book of Life in his Annotated Reference Bible:
This is the first mention of the book of God in which the names of the righteous are written. It is referred to in Scripture under various terms: “Thy book” and “My book” (Ex. 32:32–33); “the book of the living” (Ps. 69:28); “the book” (Dan. 12:1); “the book of life” (Php. 4:3; Rev. 3:5; 13:8; 17:8; 20:11–15; 22:18–19); and “the Lamb’s book of life” (Rev. 21:27). Just because “book of life” does not appear in all of these passages does not mean the reference in any one instance is to something else. Just as we have several names for the Bible—“the holy scriptures” (Rom. 1:2; 2Tim. 3:15); “the oracles of God” (Rom. 3:2; Heb. 5:12; 1 Pet. 4:11); “the law and the prophets” (Lk. 24:25–44); “the word of God” (Mk. 7:13; Rom. 10:17; Heb. 4:12); “the sword of the Spirit” (Eph. 6:17); and others—so we have several names for the book of life.
