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.
