Pray have prayed
Lord, we know that you alone are worthy of our worship. In a world that lifts up its own icons and promotes self-love, help us make you our prime focus

Imagine–a moveable statue standing over ten stories high that speaks, sings, transforms and offers “words of wisdom.” Sporting a patented skin with a matrix of millions of programmable LED pixels, this statue takes the form of any person, from Steve Jobs to Michael Jordan. With a moveable head and arms, it comes to life before your very eyes. The versatile canvas of its body can become a work of art, or change into a giant advertising platform. Does this sound like science fiction, or the scene from a futuristic movie?

Believe it or not, the details you just read about describe a tourist attraction known as The Giant, and it may be coming to a city near you. The brainchild of entrepreneur Paddy Dunning, this colossal statue aims to become part of the landscape of 21 cities around the world. Enterprise Ireland, an Irish company based in Dublin, has engaged CBRE, one of the largest commercial real estate companies in the world, to identify possible sites for the Giant. They believe this one-of-a-kind experience will draw hundreds of thousands of visitors yearly, translating into millions of dollars in revenue.

A video on the Giant Company website gives a sneak peek of what visitors can expect. Here are a few highlights from the video: “People of the world, welcome to the Giant. The visitor attraction for the 21st century… a glorious celebration of the great men and women of your country; inventors, artists, scientists, celebrities, athletes and other heroes… the Viewing Tower–see the city from the shoulders of a giant…the Roof Garden…new dimensions in retail, gastronomy, and special events for a diversity of occasions…a place to behold heroes and superheroes…a space to celebrate the great and the good.”  Be sure to watch this video so you can see what the creators are envisioning.

As noted above, the Giant comes complete with a roof garden, restaurants and stores. An exhibition space will feature state of the art technologies such as robotics, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence, all of which are designed to be engaging and educational. Visitors will take “a hero’s journey” as they encounter tasks and questions that encompass mythology and legends. They will learn about the “heroes” of their world, and the icons of the city where the Giant is located. The versatile venue can even be used for performances, presentations and concerts. In addition, visitors can take in a dramatic view of the city from the viewing tower. Here is where visitors can “stand on the shoulders of a giant.”

 A press release from the Giant Company says: “We envision The Giant as an adjunct to new urban redevelopment projects, stadiums, arenas, shopping centers, museums and other locations; it’s going to be an awe-inspiring addition to the cities where we locate it.”

The Giant is inspired by Jonathan Swift’s book, Gulliver’s Travels and it “uses technology to celebrate humanity.” The unique skin (coating) of the Giant can take on any image and it’s what gives the statue the ability to transform into historical figures, sports stars, celebrities and works of art. The Giant website features images of Beyonce, Rihanna, John Lennon, George Harrison, John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Captain America, Cat Woman, Spiderman and more. The millions of programmable LED pixels light up with vivid colors and images, allowing the Giant to metamorphose every hour. The crowds gathered below can listen as it sings songs, recites poetry or voices famous quotes.

Is there anything familiar about the description of this movable, talking 100-foot Giant? Echoes of Daniel 3 seem relevant which describe a giant image of gold that was approximately 90 feet tall. The satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges and magistrates were summoned to attend the dedication of this large image/statue. Next, a herald proclaimed, “Nations and peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do:  As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.”

The word used for image in this verse is selem, which means an idol; an idolatrous form or figure. The people of the nations were being strongly coerced, under penalty of death, to bow down to this statue/image. But not everyone would be swayed, even with the threat of a burning furnace looming over them.

“But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon—Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego—who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up,” Daniel 3:12.

So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego would not bow down to this giant statue. For this defiance to idolatry, they were thrown into the fire. Of course, God steps in and we know the ending to the story–“So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire,  and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them,” Daniel 3:26-27.

The story isn’t much different today. The idols the world asks us to worship are seen on T.V. and broadcasted through the airwaves. Whether it’s a celebrity who tells us to celebrate abortion, or a sports icon who champions racial division, we cannot bow to these unbiblical mantras. The “heroes of this world” and what society calls “the great and the good” are often proclaiming that we can be our own gods, instead of following the One True God–Jesus Christ. The Nebuchadnezzars of the world put alternative lifestyles on a pedestal and demand we celebrate in unison. Anyone who dares defy this narrative has their social media account thrust into the fire, or their reputation burned to the ground. There’s so much symbolism in the portrayal of this ten-story giant that will make its way into 21 cities of the world. And yet, there’s even more to reveal.

 The artistic canvas of the Giant will be a digital art gallery in the sky, but it will also be a “beacon for brand celebration” where companies can advertise. The video on the Giant website uses Coca-Cola, Apple and Google as examples of corporations who can take advantage of this “giant opportunity.”

As we already know, these companies are giants in more ways than one. Their giant influence over the digital and social realm is what’s driving the culture and values of today’s world that bows to brands, technology and artificial intelligence. But God’s people will not be moved. Our hearts are not swayed by the giant desires of man.

“The Giant will be one of the world’s most ambitious cultural and commercial projects bringing together art, amusement and wonder to create a contemporary and highly profitable business,” declares Paddy Dunning, the creator of the Giant.

Tourists who visit the Giant may find themselves featured on the colossal canvas. Every visitor can be scanned while touring the exhibition space. Next, their image is uploaded and displayed on the statue. The website calls this “the ultimate selfie.”  The Giant Company says, “They can also add audio messages to their Giant selfies wishing friends and relatives birthday and anniversary greetings, or offering marriage proposals and other salutations.” Paddy Dunning believes these selfies will draw more attention than the other images. He says, “You can look up and you will become the Giant.”

2 Timothy 3:2,4 declares that in the last days: “men will be lovers of themselves…lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” This begs the question–do we really need a giant image of ourselves plastered on a 100- foot image? The world tells us to magnify and glorify ourselves rather than Jesus. Yet we know only Jesus is worthy of honor, glory and worship. The Bible tells us “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble,” James 4:6.

Currently there are at least 23 cities that are potential candidates to host a Giant such as Berlin, New York, Dubai, Singapore, Las Vegas, London, Belfast and Dublin. Many more have great interest in bringing a Giant to their area. The cost of each statue ranges from 18-24 million dollars, depending on the location and size chosen. The attraction can be utilized as either a temporary or permanent structure that can be built in as little as 18 months.

The Giant is meant to be part of a global movement. Global events will bring these giants and their cities together. The Press Release from the Giant website says, “the Giant will lead the charge on promoting sustainable living and climate action, funding programs and as well as engaging in other philanthropic endeavors. While every Giant is bespoke for its city and country, each is also a member of a family that can digitally communicate with other Giants around the world. Global events will engender global communities and these trendsetting events will become a defining social feature of the coming decades.”

Visitors to the Giant will receive a certificate and become part of the “Giant Movement.” Mr. Dunning states, “The world has to change and the Giant wants to be part of this change and inspire people to reach their full potential and help save this planet.”

 Global movements these days are directed at climate change, social reform, resetting the economy and embracing artificial intelligence. It’s a worldly mentality where countries are told to meld together into one big collective unit. The Bible warns us about a future global government where an image is used as a centerpiece of worship. Speaking about the Antichrist, Revelation 13:14-15 says, “It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

Like the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, where Nebuchadnezzar killed anyone who would not worship his image, those who do not worship the Beast’s image will be killed. We can often see the shadows of what’s to come all around us. As time moves forward, we will see more and more reminders. This moves us to intercede and pray.

The Giant aims to be the world’s tallest moving statue, “built by Irish hands.” Hmm… I remember reading about something giant that was built in Ireland and launched in 1912– The Titanic. At the time it was the largest moving vessel in the world. As Christians, we know colossal moving statues may be built, but like King David, we can tell those giants, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel.”

Let’s pray to slay the “giants” that pervade our nation such as abortion, gender identity confusion, same sex marriage, critical race theory, as well as widespread deceit and the love of self to name a few. We should also pray for humility, courage and discernment as giant influences spring up all around us. Above all, let us remember that only Jesus is worthy of our praise and worship. “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they are created and have their being.” Revelation 4:11.

We need to be vigilant. God could be coming back in 8-10 years and this giant, and the prep for the temple in Israel is just the beginning and the preparation for God’s return. All of you who read my comment, guys you need to read the bible. Genesis to Revelation. Front to back, all the way through. Read it all in 90 days or less. No studies, no commentaries just reading it. Pray ‘Lord help me to love you and love others’ and then ask him “I don’t know what it means to be filled with the spirit but Lord please fill me with your spirit and work through me” we need to stop trying to fix this world and our faith on our own. God is coming back, He is coming! And he is the only one who can get us ready. Stop working on your power because you can do nothing on your own. you can’t make yourself a better Christian. only God can. Read your bibles!! Read and ask God to show you the truth in His word. READ!!! I BEG YOU JUST READ GENESIS TO REVELATION AS FAST AS YOU CAN. over and over and over. i swear on my life and my Christian faith that you will be changed. (by the way, King James Version, research the difference between ESV and KJV. trust me just look) (also, look at the origin on our federal holidays {Christmas, Halloween, and Easter})

First, I am grateful and encouraged to see so many discerning the evil in this thing! I barely could stand to watch the video! The soundtrack and voice was sooooo reminiscent of Hunger Games! This is EVIL. As I was reading the article, I saw a field of energy emanating from this thing which poured out over the people. I saw “mind control”. This MUST be prayed down!! ALL computers have glitches and often crash. We MUST PROCLAIM, decree that this thing CRASHES!!!! Take authority over this effort to indoctrinate, deceive, and imprison souls!!! THIS makes me so righteously ANGRY!!

Thank you Angela. I had seen the video about a month ago and had the same reaction. Truly we are living in times that are perilous, end of the age. May God grant His people strength to endure to the end and for wisdom to discern proper words to speak and actions to take.

While I appreciate the many comments I’ve seen here, I also believe this is a remarkable technical achievement. It is a demonstration of the amazing and varied gifts with which our Creator has endowed us. While the developers have positioned it as an advertising gimmick and a way for localities to increase tourism and the resultant tourist dollars, I think it offers other, more beneficial, opportunities of which its promoters aren’t even aware. They are seemingly beguiled by self-love, hubris, and may not yet be people of God, who am I to say.

Imagine being able to pass out tracts or bible verses to the tens or hundreds of thousands of people standing on those lines. Imagine being able to witness to the goodness of God, or sharing salvation through the sacrifice and teachings of His Son, Jesus, and enlightening those living in darkness by the gift of the Holy Spirit.

It is easy to take shots at things with which we disagree or make us uncomfortable. My initial reaction (and it was a reaction without forethought) was extremely toxic, especially because of some of the godless characters personified in their promotional video. Candidly, I was frightened and appalled. Then I remembered Paul’s words, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28.

I know that in order to live my faith more fully, Paul’s words have to be one of the lenses through which I look at this seemingly crazy world in which I live. To those of you who read this, I invite you to please pray for me that I might always remember Paul’s words as well as God’s promise “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11.

Let me not judge but discern more ways in which I may serve the Lord as His witness in love with compassion for a hurting world.

    You don’t passively overlook something that has an appearance of evil, and may in fact BE evil. Yes, we can always pass out tracts at these statue areas. And yes, God can turn evil into good. Does that mean we don’t oppose the evil? Shoot, by that logic, the founders never should have revolted, but passed out tracts and thanked God for the good He was going to bring out of the British troops marching on our soil.

    No, these statues are not an oppressive military force. But…

    They will be extensions of our Leftist indoctrination centers: our schools and news media. Now, they’ll be preaching it on the streets, as we do with the gospel. And, they are eerily reminiscent of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue, and the “image” spoken of in Revelation. Of course, that is not reason enough to oppose them. That they will be spewing Leftist / pagan talking points though, is. That they will (possibly) accustom us to gigantic images of well-known personalities, also is.

      Hi Keith:

      What if instead, Christians began retaking the culture, just as the left has. They play the long game of political and social re-engineering. They have been working at this for almost a century and have succeeded in infiltrating and taking over the media, corporate America, the US, and many other governments. What if, instead, we, the children of God, remember that we are not playing the long game like the left but rather the eternal game? We are in this world but not of it.

      Yes, fight evil. But in fighting evil we need to avoid becoming the evil we set out to erase. It is a challenge of epic proportions. Thanks for your inciteful response. Passing out tracts and sharing the Gospel, is a good start. There is still a lot more work to do, but righteous indignation in and of itself won’t get the job done. Blessings…

        Keith
        July 7, 2021

        I don’t believe anything I said negates the need to be more involved in our society, from the top down and the bottom up. It is partly this BS the Church has bought, that Christians don’t belong in politics, that has contributed to our current difficulties. Or… war. Because, it is increasingly becoming one. Poor Phillips in Colorado would have something to say about that.

        However, I also do not see how we cannot be concerned about something like these statues and not oppose them. No, I don’t advocate forcing them down. But, we do need to pray for their toppling, in my opinion. We also need to pray that they have no ill effect on our society as long as they do stand. We can also pray that they never go up.

        I don’t think either of these points excludes the other.

          I’m praying with you, Keith. Additionally, I agree wholeheartedly that the church needs to be more, not less, involved in our society. Christians belong in leadership positions across every specter of society. The challenge is that even churches are made up of people who are indeed sinful and fallible. I see pride flags, BLM signs, and all sorts of other political trash adorning church lawns and less about the responsibility of our brothers and sisters standing up to tyranny and corruption.

one more thing I want to add.. LED pixels are not healthy to look at to begin with.. which is why they have programs to dim our pc’s when we surf the internet. I ended up getting macular degeneration from not prtoecting my eyes in the Sun and using computers. I had to get eyeshots to heal the inflammation of my macula in my left eye, and now use blue blocker lenses in all of my eyeglasses. (Ever notice how harsh LED car lights are while night driving?) While the Sun has a certain amount of blue light, LED light has far more blue rays which goes right into the macula and damages it more than any other ray of light.
There are going to be alot of people with similar eye issues when they set this giant up in their major city. Not to mention, as someone already noted, the Electrical Magnetic issues that harm our bodies.

    Lisa, thank you for this timely warning. I, too, neglected to protect my eyes adequately from sunlight and computer work for years and now have macular degeneration. And I also now wear blue-blocker glasses. You are right to warn that LED radiation can cause irreversible damage to the retina; there are many studies pointing to this, sadly.

    This “giant” monstrosity is abhorrent on so many levels. Aren’t billboards intrusive enough? And talk about false idols! It seems to me they’re trying to train folks to accept the false prophet and the image of the beast in Revelation.

    Thank you again for looking out for others with your post. God bless!

    “The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil.”

      you’re so welcome Julie!

      I can see that they are going to encourage these holographic “giants” in every major city as a precursor for the eventual Antichrist down the road.. who will, no doubt, be “programmed in” this technology once he publicly steps into the World scene. the holographics will take on his physical image as the great “hero” of the World we are all forced to listen to and obey over God.

      Our tax dollars will be used , no doubt, to fund this technology in all of our major cities.. and no doubt, the United States will also use our tax dollars to also fund other countries that can’t afford the cost..so that the NWO technology will be spread everywhere to all countries. God help us all..

      A Christian coworker I know is excited about all this as it indicate to her that we are clearly in the End Times.. but I am not so excited.. I’m praying and have placed this entire matter at our Heavenly Father’s Throne that He may prevent the Illuminati from having their way so quickly.. and that people will become prepared and not be suckered into their deceptions. If God says “no” to my prayer, it is only because He will be permitting it for a reason– but He will help us all through this. love , lisa

        Your prayers about placing this at Father God’s throne are appreciated, Lisa – and are good advice! Things do seem to be advancing so quickly, and like you, I worry people aren’t prepared and will be deceived. But, like you say, we can take solace in prayer and in turning everything over to our Lord. God bless!

Nebachudnezzar’s statue immediately came to mind while reading this article. It is definitely a modern version of idol worship.. (not that there aren’t other forms, but this one is obvious). When some Christians complain about this statue coming to their cities, the majority of the community will scoff at them, claiming that Christians are always “paranoid”, and need to let their hair down and have ‘fun” once in a while… etc, etc. Most of majority never picked up their Bibles to actually know who Nebachudnezzar was… and Babylon only sounds like a cool nightclub to them. They need prayers for our Lord to open up their eyes, and all of us need prayer that we react without compromise, but also with humility as Shadrach Mesach and Abenego did.

I think not just of the spiritual wickedness embodied in this “giant” but also of the severe physical harm from all that concentrated and reverberating radiation!
Don’t go near it!

The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; eyes they have, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear; nor is there any breath in their mouths. Those who make them are like them; so is everyone who trusts in them. (Ps 135:15-18)

The love of money continues to be a root of all kinds of evil, and the thief continues to come only to steal, kill, and destroy.
But, our all-sufficient, living Lord Jesus came that we might have life, and have it abundantly!

Just another counterfeit of glory that belongs to the ONE TRUE, LIVING GOD – JESUS CHRIST! He alone is THE light of the world and he doesn’t need thousands/millions of pixels to shine. Satan masquerades as an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14), or in this case, a giant of light. Father God, we pray regarding these idols of man, that your will be done and your kingdom come!

I think it is more than the beast. If you know anything about high witchcraft than you know that children were sacrificed publically to idols. This is horrifying. Notice the last part of the video, where she speaks “Let the party begin” That is exactly what is done in high witchcraft idol worship now and in the days of old, the most abominable sexual lewdness and gross rituals before the statue! I know that the Luciferian elite want to make their dark arts public, just because of the fact we had a slew of Satanists do an art show in our town and invited the high school children to wear strap ons out door on stage in front of young childre, and hanging from a cross in S& M out fits while everyone did lewd acts on stage!

Not good. My spirit cringed when reading about this giant and AI (Artificial Intelligence). DS is already trying to manipulate our thinking. There us no telling how they will try to do the same with this. And the 3 major companies backing it — red flag big time. Three of the most powerful and liberal companies around. And one of them is already censoring Christians and conservatives to keep them from speaking out loud.
I for one will be praying and asking God how to pray and respond to this new creation. “Test the spirits” of the creators and backers comes to mind.
We also need to make certain it us not a Trojan Horse carrying and releasing something harmful.
This is what I feel after reading the article. May God reveal to me and all of us the truth about this giant.
“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,” and worship Him. Hallelujah!

Intercessors, why would you even ask this ? Anyone who sees this can see that this is globalist .. and mimics idolatry. They will call it something sweet .. and the sheep will walk right into what should not be happening. These are the times of discernment. We need the God of creation to give us wisdom and encouragement not an idol. This is prep for the anti christ and his statue that will speak to people… desensitizing the people for what is to come. Lord help us. People need to wake up .

We don’t need a “giant” statue, that “offers words of wisdom, sings, talks, etc.! We need the Word of God, to become our standard and our guide. What are we opening ourselves up to? Don’t we have enough “idols” already?? Think of the children and their parents who will be deceived in to thinking this is only a “giant selfie.” Things like this should have every believer, extremely concerned. We are watching Bible prophecy and Bible warnings right in front of our eyes! The “giants” and deceptions in our nation, and in our lives, need to be slain, be destroyed , not encouraged. Many have become, and are becoming, “lovers of themselves, not lovers of God, and they are being very deceived! This “giant” project will open the door to giant deception. My prayer is that this “project” will fail, miserably! I don’t see this as being “used for good.” Look at the people behind this. God, have mercy on us, and open people’s eyes to see Your truth!

For the last few years I have felt that the Beast will be an artificial intellingence occupying a cybernetic body. That is why it can survive death, be everywhere at once (like Google) and have all the knowledge about you that is almost God-like.

Here is the God-breathed correct interpretation of Rev 4:11. This is a prophetic work and cannot be interpreted literally! Remember the parables our REDEEMER had to interpret for His disciples.

REVELATION CHAPTER 4
Prophetically voices and trumpets are warnings, this is Father Yhovah speaking.

Revelation 4:1-3
After this I (John) looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. 3 And He that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

The throne represents Father Yhovah’s power and authority. Revelation 21:11 describes jasper as clear as crystal, prophetically crystal and transparency represent Holy Spirit purity. The sardine stone is red and represents righteous judgment. The rainbow symbolizes the Covenant promise and one of the meaning of the emerald’s green color is praise. Father Yhovah is the Holy Spirit who keeps the Covenant using righteous judgment. He is worthy to be praised.

Revelation 4:4
And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

In scriptural numerology 24 represents the priesthood of Believers. These elders represent the Elect overcomers who are wearing white robes of righteousness without spots. Gold represents spiritual completeness and crowns are defined by Isaiah, and again in:

Hebrews 2:7
Thou madest him (mankind) a little lower than the angels; Thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of Thy hands:

Revelation 4:5-6
And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God. 6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 7 And the first beast was like a lion (Leo), and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

Thunderings and voices are warnings. The lightnings represent Father Yhovah’s glory and the lamps represent the Holy Family. The sea represents nations, peoples, and tongues and glass like unto crystal represents the spiritual purity of the perfected Elect overcomers. These beasts are holy. The lion represents Lord Immanuel. When calves are called, they start to mature spiritually. This is the period of time before justification and baptism. (See Appendix B) The man represents the ‘kings of the earth’, the period of time from baptism and beginning sanctification to dying-to-self and becoming an eagle, a perfected overcomer. Ezekiel described the lowest spiritual level as a cherub. The lion represents Lord Immanuel, represented by the constellation Leo, hence the title Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The apostle Paul also taught about this process in:

Romans 8:30
Moreover, whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called (the calf), them He also justified: and whom he justified (the man), them He also glorified (the eagles).

Revelation 4:8
And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, which was, and is, and is to come.

The number 6 represents the sin nature of man and wings represent attaining glory and honor by overcoming adversity. The eyes represent spiritual completeness.

Exodus 6:2-4  And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: 3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of GOD ALMIGHTY, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. 
4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers. 

Revelation 4:9-11 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to Him (Father) that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, 10 the four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sat on the throne, and worship Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.

The crowns represent the glory and honor that are given to Father Yhovah in praise and worship. Lord Immanuel tells us He is part of this the ‘kings and priests ‘group, He is the King of Kings.

Revelation 3:21 To him that overcometh will I (SON) grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I ALSO OVERCAME, and am set down with My Father in His throne.

Interesting article, Angela. There truly is nothing new under the sun. People who create, and enjoy, such a thing of idolatry, obviously do not know the Living God. These are people living in darkness, only interested in what man can create, and make money with. They are very much a part of Babylon, another name for the world system. Thank God that He has a holy remnant who will be offended by this satanic nonsense. We bind the spirit of the Beast, which is alive and well in our culture today. We loose the fruit of Holy Spirit upon these lost, misguided people who would be attracted to this insanity. In Jesus’ name.

This could also be used for good in showing Bible stories and themed in a Biblical format. The Ark in Kentucky is a way to spread the gospel and this could be used for good as well as evil.

“The question is, will they want it?” (as the presenter shows the world’s giant selfie image, post total body scan of the individual, yikes). We will be our own idols. Perhaps it will become a contest as to whose image is the best for the figure. It will be used globally in major cities. You will receive an ID card after your visit, which is proof that your body scan is complete. 1984 meets Gattica meets the Bible.

    In case anyone doesn’t get the connection, Gattica was a very interesting Science Fiction thriller about a man trying to beat the New world System. There may be a book it was based on, I don’t know.

    While anyone can look it up, it was kind that you added the information. Gattaca was a book and also movie with the premise that racial discrimination is wrong but DNA scanning is common. Eugenics, reproductive control, tracking, eliminating the systemically weak and controlling the choices and freedom of the individual are the basis for this society. Science fiction . . .

The giants will fall !!!!
Obadiah 1:3-4
“The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who dwell in the clefts of the rock, who’s habitation is high; you say in your heart who will bring me down to the ground? Though you ascend as high is the Eagle and though you set your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down says the Lord.”

Just imagine: first a human idol to adore; then a kneeling bench to pray to a false idol; then sacrificial lambs. Maybe a Molech? You know what their sacrifices were there.
I have one hero and He is three in One: God the Father, Jesus His Son and the Holy Spirit.

I wasn’t thinking of Daniel, but what about (I may not have this exactly correct, been a while since studying) the Beast used by the Antichrist? Required to accept a mark on your wrist or forehead? Of course, must have vaccine to be close to it or it’ll bend down and POINT at you!

Thank you for an 8nformative article that allows us to ponder 5he role of men called entrepreneurs.
I am reminded of George Orwell and the impact his writing still has.
Recently, I was amazed when I saw a giant statue had .been erected in a ski area to call the snow to their area.
The status was of an ancient God and was the featured attraction of the festival to open the ski season.
I felt this ancient god was moving in a powerful way since he had been invited. This area is now a stronghold. It will require God’s direction to release this people
When the enemy is invited in it takes a “furnace” experience to change. May we have courage to “see”.
Thanks again, Gloria, for a timely update on what Men envision or the future.
Nebuchadnezzar had a shock in store. So do we??

Father God,
Disturbing to think that we have learned very little from the mistakes of our past. The Bible is so clear but because we are so biblically illiterate we can’t see the obvious. We have already worshipped self, materialism, power, wealth and celebrity. Making it a big image just creates a tangible picture of where the world lives! Oh Lord, please have mercy on us. Help Your church to have eyes to see and ears to hear and hearts that desire to obey and please You! May it be so that many will turn from their idols, fall on their knees and ask for forgiveness! Father God, pour out Your Holy Spirit to impart wisdom and discernment! Grant Your church unity in Christ Jesus. Lord, please hear our cries. Much of this is to bring many to The cross. Oh, that they would seek Jesus. Help us to point the Way. Give us the courage of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendego to stand firm and hold on to Jesus. Use us to be beacons of Hope illuminating the Love of our Savior Jesus Christ! We ask in His Name

Angela,
Your comparison to Daniel 3 is so accurate. May I add that the three youths were worshiping in the furnace and the song they were singing is carried in some translations as the song of Azariah. It is so powerful – “Bless the Lord” over and over in obedient submission to the nth degree. The song is spiritually harmonic with Psalm 103 and Matt Redman’s 10,000 Reasons.
Great article!!!

The only hero I need to look upon and thank is our Lord and savior Jesus Christ and what he did for me at the cross! Then he rose again from the dead and is interceding on our behalf. Christ is the only one we need to look upon and thank God almighty for him.

Heavenly Father, the first thought was of the fallen angels who came to earth…they desired beautiful women and begot nephillims, giants.
Guide us and lead us into your way with eyes to see truth and great wisdom to know counterfeit works of satan.
In Kentucky there is recreation of Noah’s Arc life size according to scripture. This is true, and the giants are false.
Grow us up for these end times with deeper knowledge to use Full Armor of God…
Jesus, you are our fierce Courage for the end of this age.
Hallelujah to KING JEHOVAH for we WIN.

I am concerned what this GIANT is going to spew out of his/her/its mouth. I am concerned about facial recognition and contact tracing. I am concerned about the gender ideologies and climate change propaganda. I am concerned about the placement of these cities of the GIANT who changes personalities. I don’t want these visitors to bow down to satan and his minions. Just spread the word with this article to pastors and people that would care about it entering the cities. Meditate on Revelation 4:11 in Jesus’ mighty name. I pray that the real WOKE people won’t go to see this GIANT.

    Carole I am absolutely with you. Well expressed. I can see the attraction this will have for many people.

    Lord God I pray that this deceptively ‘fun’ thing will not get of the starting block and that there will be no sites available and finances for this project would not be forthcoming in Jesus name.

I myself would never visit or go see such an ugly statue putting images of celebrities or sports figures or images of JFK, or any other humans face. I will pray that this does not come to my town. Today our country is caught up in sin, so praying this does not develop is what I can do.

Father God please dont allow another image of idolatry in our countries to invade the youth and the lost, I pray a movement of you Father God comes into the hearts of those who do not know you and we long for your return. AMEN

    Heavenly Father,

    We will not allow, or accept this statue!

    We reject, and cancel the assignment of this statue in The Name of Jesus. I pray that it be destroyed in Jesus Name.

    I pray that the spirit behind this abomination be cast down in Jesus Name! And the people behind this and those involved will be exposed.

    I pray that you wake up your people, that they would not be caught up in this trap that the enemy is setting in this scheme.

    Lord we commission Your waring Angels to be assigned to destroy the works of the enemy, and this statute.

    Through The Power Of The Blood of Jesus!

    AMEN
