Holographic Images of the Beast?

Someday mobile devices will be capable of displaying 3D holographic images that you will be able to interact with. Imagine a friend calling you and your phone displays a live holographic image of your friend that you can converse with.

I told my dad about this technology before his passing and he immediately tried to link this potential technological development to the image of the beast (Antichrist) mentioned in Revelation 13:14-15.

“(14) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. (15) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Revelation 13:14-15)

The idea he posited is that people could use holographic technology to create 3D holographic images of the beast to worship. In this article, I’ll share thoughts about the likelihood that people will create 3D holographic images of the beast to worship.

Life in the Images of the Beast

I’ve thought about the idea of people worshiping holographic images of the beast, but I believe it is unlikely to happen. The main issue I have with this idea is that Revelation 13:15 says the False Prophet will give “life” to the image of the beast. How can a holographic projection be given life?

  • In my article about fallen angels vs demons article, I cite Revelation 9:18-21 and Revelation 13:14 as potential evidence that demons could inhabit images or idols that people worship. In this case, demons would inhabit physical objects, which is not impossible for them since they are recorded in the Bible to have possessed individuals. In contrast, people would not be worshiping something physical if they utilize 3D holographic images of the beast. It’s hard to see how a demon would have the ability to possess an illusion.
  • Scientists are developing moving 3D holograms, but it’s difficult to see how a moving 3D hologram could be equated with being given “life”… The False Prophet giving “life” to images of the beast could easily be one of the deceptions he uses to fool people into worshipping Antichrist. However, I don’t believe people would be so easily deceived if they relied on holographic technology to worship the beast since more people each day are becoming aware that moving holograms is becoming a real technological possibility.

The Images of the Beast Can Kill

Another issue I have with the idea is that the image of the beast has the ability to kill people who refuse to worship it. If people are worshiping holographic images of the beast it’s hard to imagine how these images would know when a person is refusing to worship them. In contrast, if a demon inhabits a physical image or idol of the beast it could detect when someone refuses to worship it and perhaps alert the authorities of someone’s insubordination.

I believe it’s far likelier that the followers of the Antichrist will print out images of the beast from their printers or make idols (if they have the skill to make one) than to worship 3D holograms of the Antichrist.

  1. I may agree with your dad. I came to your page in my quest to uncover Qanon. As you May know, theorist believe that jfk jr is alive. My theory is that Q is also the name for IBM quantum computers and that jfk jr will appear as a hologram to launch this technology maybe in space program. This tech has already been used to recreate president Kennedy’s voice. If I remember right, there is “magic” involved with the beast rising from the sea after a fatal head injury. A large number of people loved the kennedy’s Ask your dad what he thinks about that. Thanks for the article.

  2. The LORD have me HIS servant insight on this a long while ago.why should the image be a real man A hologram is easier, No payment needed With the dark matter they found it the beast can posess it! Look at the actresses n actor’s the hologram is so real it’s believable! A sword wounded it as to death the illusion of death anything can be put together with this hologram to appear human.these holograms can speak n disappear at will signs n wonders it could create no problem. The LORD also have me wisdom of who this beast will be cardinal thanx ph

  3. The prophet, Daniel in Dan.2, explains King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the “image”… In this interpretation, the “image” is in the form of a statue & represents kingdoms; An “image” however can come in many forms, such as a hologram or even a poster as long as it is a “likeness” or representation of someone (the idea is that the world will be commanded to worship the image in whatever form)- Also receiving an identifying “mark” in order to be allowed to buy or sell. Therefore, this command to worship the image, is backed up by a Universal Law (and that is what I believe gives “breath” or “life” to the image and causes it to speak etc. (because it becomes a judicial LAW that will be written & spoken by Judges & other law enforcement personnel to carry out the sentencing). Praise God that we are able to converse freely about these topics at this time. God bless you & your website! Goldie 🙂

  4. are you talking about barack Obama? he looks like a hologram or image inhabited by demons to me. almost on par. even if he’s a man, part robot, still looks like partial moving holographic image or entity. Or let me say i’m not certain as to if he’s human and possessed, demonic, an image or part robot, but something is off. If he isn’t the guy or the beast i’d like to see the guy who is, cause there’s so much off with him.
    I don’t say this about other people, regardless of if they look ‘different’ or not, but barack is different. regardless of if he’s not the beast, is the beast, is not the antichrist, he’s still a tool of something sinister going on, all signs point to the beast to me. unless he’s part of a cruel joke by the people in charge.
    how come his ears move in live time? 99 percent of the time, as he speaks and moves his head in directions in a robotic manner, his ears also move slightly. his ears are in diff positions in pictures, leading one to believe it’s an actor possibly, but then it happens in live time, unless he’s not moving his head and is directly in front of the camera, only time his ears don’t move. also he has ‘demons’ attached to him or on him or someone is putting them there intentionally.
    So how does one explain moving body parts. holographic sludgy images of the man, robotic gestures plus satanic stuff on him? he also is working with other rulers/leaders. like I said he may not be the antichrist, but he sure is a good match for the beast that speaks, regardless of the ‘head wound’- theyre trying to get everyone to worship him , get his name, his insurance, and penalizing people if they don’t. it’s not just him offering healthcare.
    ive never seen a person who existed who had more satanic stuff around him than this guy. regardless of what he is.
    so they’re playing a huge joke or he’s the beast, right? forget his past being phony, whole thing screams ‘corny’ contrived and cultish.

  5. I think I’ve heard about that before. I would rather see a human being perform than to see a computer generated hologram perform, but obviously there seems to be people out there willing to pay to see the hologram. 

  6. Have you seen the holographic Japanese pop singer?  She’s performing to live sell-out concerts of thousands of people.  She even has a live band (not holographic).  Look at this video.  People appear to be on both sides of the stage and are waving glow sticks.  And people pay good money for this? To hear a computer generated hologram sing?

  7. 1st: You ask how can a holographic projection be given life. “The false prophet will give life to the image of the beast”, in my opinion, means that it will look so real that it will be alive in the minds of the masses. It’s all about deception and perception. What does it mean to “be alive” anyway? That is a whole other subject. Anyway, holographic technology is super advanced, it is certainly not in it’s early stages of development, but for the most part, the public wouldn’t know that; also, it has already been used to fool millions of people, and it worked. Everyone thought what they saw was real. But I wont go into detail with that.                                  2nd: You wonder how a holographic image would have the ability to kill people. As I said, this technology is super advanced, holograms are not just images that can be seen, the images can also be interacted with, touched/felt, smelled, heard, etc. Again, majority of the public doesn’t know how far this technology goes. But the information is out there, however, the answer is something that has to be pieced together.
