Remember the main aim of these posts is to make Christians get ready for the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We have already discussed the following signs leading to His Coming:
Signs of Nature
Signs of Society
Spiritual Signs: Negative and positive.
Today, we are going to discuss the signs of Technology leading to Christ’s Second coming.
I will not spend much time here because we have already said something about it.
An example of what I am talking about is found in Daniel chapter 12 where it says there is going to be an explosion of knowledge and an increase in the rapidity of transportation in the end times.
These two things have happened in this century. Both knowledge and transportation have increased exponentially in this century.
- By the time an encyclopedia is published today, it is already out of date.
- Scientists, educationists, philosophers, etc are found everywhere with various theories and knowledge.
- More than half of all medicines have been developed since the end of World War II.
- We entered this century still relying on the horse as our basic mode of transportation. Today, we have autos, bullet trains, planes, and rocket ships.
The Bible says that in the end times when the Antichrist sets up his world kingdom, he is going to keep tabs on everybody. Everyone will have to have the mark of the beast in order to buy and sell. How can that be accomplished apart from lasers and computers?
The Bible says the false prophet will make an image of the Antichrist, and people will worship the image because it will appear to be alive. How can that be apart from robotics?
Modern technology and the inventions it has produced are a sign of the soon return of Jesus Christ.
Therefore, Christians should be aware of this. Everything happening technologically in the universe today, is pointing towards the Second Advent of Christ and the manifestation of the Antichrist. So, do not say the Scripture does not give us enough information about the season of His coming.
Thanks for reading and understanding. Watch out for part 10.
Shalom and Maranatha!
