By the turn of the nineteenth-century, knowledge had doubled once every 100 years. By 1950, knowledge doubled every 25 years. Today the astounding increase in knowledge is doubling every year and soon expected to double once a day. This rapid accumulation of information can, of course, be attributed to computers and the internet. The super smart computer can collect, store, and integrate data in seconds by reading cyberspace at will. Given enough information the giant computers can reason and solve problems on their own. The one capacity Artificial intelligent computers don’t possess is conscience. The world is changing at the same exponential rate that knowledge increases. To some, it represents progress, to others a clear and present danger.
There is no question that advanced technologies have led the way toward conquering disease, wiping out hunger, changing methods of travel and much more innovative, if not provocative ways, to aid the human experience. It is estimated that within the next 5 years, self-propelled cars will become available ending the way we travel forever. The Hyperloop is an electromagnetic propulsion system that can transport passengers at 700 miles an hour. It is being tested in multiple locations across the globe. A handheld multiple data collector (Tricorder) is being developed for the ordinary cell phone that can recognize and analyze multiple disease. It’s your personal doctor in a pocket. China has constructed a six story building using a 3D printer.
Technologies are breeding themselves daily, changing the way we think, act, and live. If you haven’t recognized the rapidly changing landscape, you are just not paying attention. Daniel was given a prophetic warning about a future time when transportation and knowledge would increase exponentially. “But Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal it up so that it will not be understood until the end times when travel and education shall be vastly increased!”(Da.12:4) This prediction is no longer a secret. It is easily understood because we are witness to these signs and wonders. Regardless of how beneficial the technology is, it does not alter the nature of degenerate men. The end of time as we know it is upon us. All believers should pay close attention to world conditions so as not to be caught unaware.
