“Men will roam over the face of the earth and knowledge will increase.”
This prophecy is from the Book of Daniel. When we stop and think that this was written about 2600 years ago, it is an astounding forecast of the future. Just before the invention of flight – the airplane – there were those who thought that man would never accomplish the feat. Men actually stated that if we attained speeds any faster than that of riding on horseback, we would perish! Now, we roam over the face of the earth, as airplanes from every nation take to the skies daily, ferrying thousands of people to places, that a hundred years ago, would have taken months to reach. I am told that the worlds knowledge doubles every few years. The news cycle used to be about 24 hours, now it is down to a twelve hour news cycle or less. Stories are dropped as new ones emerge. Who can keep track of it all? Weather cycles are changing too, as we see an increase in natural disasters. Earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, famines, lightning storms, hurricanes, all seem to be increasing. Are these indicators that we are accelerating toward some sort of climax that the Bible warns us about? Are we headed toward the time of Jacob’s trouble? I believe that we are.
When I first began researching world events that related to Biblical prophecy, about 20 years ago, it was fairly easy to keep track of events. Now, it is almost impossible. The world has become such a small place. The Internet is one factor that has changed the way we communicate. We send messages to each other, through the technology of Fiber-optics, at the speed of light! Through geo-synchronized satellites we now sit in the comfort of our living rooms, while we watch events unfold in real time, half a world away. There is technology that would have seemed like magic centuries ago and, in some ways, it is. We have the artificial heart, we can transplant limbs and even create a new face, on one that is disfigured. We can land a man on the moon, and send a vehicle to Mars, which then send us video of the martian surface. We have learned to prolong life as any people in the Untied Stated live well into their eighties. We have the most sophisticated highways that link our cities and afford us the luxury of traveling anywhere we wish. We have abundance of food due to modern farming methods and we have our choice of dinning out and eating just about any cuisine we wish. We can control the temperature of our living spaces with the touch of a finger. Then there is the ability to annihilate every living soul on the planet. We have tapped the hidden world of micro-biology and can infest entire regions with pathogens that will kill every human being. We have harnessed these weapons of mass destruction and as of yet, have not unleashed them on one antother. [Saddam Hussein did in fact use poison gas against the Kurds, which was using weapons of mass destruction. I think he shipped all of his WMD’s to Syria.] Wars and rumors of wars are echoed in the halls of power on every continent. Are we living in the days when men will faint from what is coming on the earth? Are we accelerating? You be the judge….
