Modern Technology


The incredible technological progress that we have observed in our generation has a definite association with the fulfillment of ancient prophecies. Daniel recorded many detailed predictions about the future that even he could not fully understand. In fact, toward the end of his Old Testament book, he he was told, "Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge" (Daniel 12:4).

Before our time, no one could have imagined the unbelievable increase of knowledge that has been brought about by the computer revolution. And the Internet has provided a way for many to "go here and there" to gain that information.

These and other technological advances have made it possible to share the Gospel globally. But they will also enable Satan to form a world-wide government and an economic dictatorship that will require the Mark of the Beast.

The writing on the wall: Technology and the Antichrist

Sept. 23, 2014 - The Bible is full of predictions that have come to pass in the past. It has much to say about our future, including a cashless society. Evangelist Greg Laurie writes:

There is coming a day when a charismatic leader will emerge on the world scene, identified in the Bible as the Antichrist, and no one will be able to do any kind of financial transaction unless they have his mark.

All-Chinese-Parts Supercomputer Leads World

Jun. 21, 2016 -

A supercomputer made with all-Chinese parts was named the fastest in the world Monday, and China also has beaten out the United States with the most supercomputers on the Top500 list.

The computer, Sunway TaihuLight, is capable of 93 million billion floating-point operations per second [93 petaflops]. China also has the second-place computer, and the U.S. has the third: Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Titan. Oak Ridge plans to have a new computer, called Summit, in 2018 that will be capable of 150 to 300 petaflops.

Internet by light promises to leave Wi-Fi eating dust

Feb. 23, 2016 - Oledcomm, a French technology company, has demonstrated how light waves could be better than radio signals for Internet connections. At the Mobile World Congress, they showed how a smartphone, placed under an office lamp, could play a video.

The big advantage of Li-Fi, short for "light fidelity", is its lightning speed. Laboratory tests have shown theoretical speeds of over 200 Gbps -- fast enough to "download the equivalent of 23 DVDs in one second",
