We read in the Bible the ‘Revelation of Jesus Christ’ and some of the accounts written there of events that will occur during the time of tribulation and of events that lead up to this time. These events are catastrophic in their nature and impact in the earth. We find it difficult to conceive or imagine such destruction. I was saved in 1982. During the early days of my Christian walk with Christ there was really no concept of how some of these scriptures in Revelation could be possible or come about. Computers were just coming onto the retail scene at that time and large businesses were just beginning to install computers to manage information. A lot has happened over the last thirty five years. We see more clearly today how the control over people talked about in Revelation is possible. Some of this control involves forcing people to receive a ‘mark of the beast’ and controlling the ability of someone to buy or sell. This indicates extreme control.
All of this is in the realm of possibility today and is currently being built as an information infrastructure called 5G throughout the whole world. All of this technology has taken place within a very short period of time. Change is happening so quickly that most people are being overtaken by it. This gives us a picture of what the shocking possibilities may be during the next thirty plus years going forward. Artificial intelligence has now come onto the world scene and is commonly being accepted. Concerts performed by deceased artists are now capable of being offered through hollogram technology. Environmental, social, and culture movements today are threatening to take people back to life as it was in the time of the post-industrial era. The Book of Revelation gives some indication of this happening as it talks of wooden chariots being piled up and burned at the very end.
The Bible book of Revelation talks about a Beast, the image of the Beast, and a False Prophet. This Beast is a tyrant and is ruthless. Without conscience, without mercy, without empathy. It is not hard to imagine an image of this Beast being possible through the world of technology that is being developed today. Some say today the False Prophet is the apostate church. A worldly representation of the church that finds itself so far away from Christ in the end that it is thrown into the Lake of Fire with the devil.
We are definitely living in the last of the last days.
