Amen Betty,

INCREASED KNOWLEDGE: In Daniel 12:4 we read: "But thou, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: but many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased".

Our generation has seen a breathtaking increase in knowledge and technology, unimaginable to those of even a hundred years ago. Advances in communication, transport medicine, materials science, electronics, and nuclear physics, to name a few, are products of this age of increased knowledge and opportunity which the Bible refers to as the "times of the end".

Despite man's preoccupation with knowledge and academic pursuits, Paul warns that many are "Ever learning, and never coming to the knowledge of the truth" (2 Timothy 3:7). Their desire for knowledge is misdirected. And: "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables" (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

Strive to enter in at the strait gate:for many, I say unto you will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. ( Luke 13:24 )

I believe the increase in Knowledge is one of the signs that we are living in the last days.

Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

I hear ya!

I pray for understanding when I read the book of Revelation. I also check out different commentaries. I like Bible gateway.

~To Him That is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.~ Jude 24

I was over at Kiefer's board and there was a thread with this same title and it made me think about this blog that I recently saw:

There is a lot of scientific work being done today within the realm of artificial intelligence and it always sends me thinking about the scriptures and some of the prophesy we see in revelation. I have always viewed the book of revelation from an allegoric perspective I think- saw some of the creatures whose images are painted for us mentally as being something other than literal, but things like this make me wonder...what will the beasts of the earth of Rev 6:8 for example look like? will they be men? will they be ordinary animals? will they be cyborg type creatures?

Many things that were just 20 years ago considered sci-fi are today's reality. Any thoughts on this?
