The Coming End Part 4

We notice in Daniel Chapter 12 verse 4 God tells Daniel through an angel, ” But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Have you considered how much and how fast knowledge has increased? Just over the past 100 to 150 years?

While the early 19th century had seen rapid progress in electrical science, the late 19th century would see the greatest progress in electrical engineering. Through such people as Nikola Tesla, Galileo Ferraris, Oliver Heaviside, Thomas Edison, Ottó Bláthy, Ányos Jedlik, Sir Charles Parsons, Joseph Swan, George Westinghouse, Ernst Werner von Siemens, Alexander Graham Bell and Lord Kelvin, electricity turned from a scientific curiosity into an essential tool for modern life, becoming a driving force of the Second Industrial Revolution.  Read all about electricity here.

The automobile. It wasn’t until Henry Ford made a Ford Model T in 1908 when automobiles were made affordable to the public. Read more here.

Television: Since the 1920s the television set has become commonplace in homes, businesses and institutions, particularly as a vehicle for advertising, a source of entertainment, and news. Since the 1950s, television has been the main medium for molding public opinion.

When we look at space travel, NASA going to the moon, genetic engineering, cloning, the Internet, wifi, cell phones, indoor plumbing, air-conditioning and many more modern day facts of our life we see how knowledge has increased at a phenomenal rate in a short 100 years. Imagine, from the time of the disciples and when Jesus Christ walked on earth up until 150 years ago, people pumped buckets for water, rode horse-back or mule or camel to get around. Now we take airplanes, boats, railroad cars (electric and gas or diesel) and still use horses, mule and camels.

These are all signs of coming to an end of an age.
