Modern Technology --- Foretold in the Bible
Microchips, Satellites, Nuclear Weapons, Modern Dams, Car, Train and Air Travel, Modern Computer Technology, Modern Surveillance System, the Internet, all foretold in the Bible. We’re seeing Bible prophecy unfolding right before our very eyes. It’s amazing how little people know of what the Bible reveals, even among Christians. Bible prophecy is to be a sign, a testimony that the Bible is indeed the Word of God and Jesus is Lord. Bible Prophecy is to be a witness that the Bible is the Truth.
One of the more recent technological advances is the implanting of Microchips. They also have barcode like tattoos that can be scanned. Either one of these can easily be used to fulfill exactly what we are told in Rev. 13, 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
The mark in the right hands or foreheads. It’s here now. There are companies in Europe that have already been injecting microchips in their employees, now companies here in the U.S. are. They hope the microchips can eventually be used on everything from air travel, public transit and storing medical and financial information. Well, in Europe there is already a train system that is using it. Microchips could eventually replace debit and credit cards. John said mark in the right hand or forehead. The implanted microchip leaves a mark. This chip is going between your thumb and forefinger. That’s your hand.
We see in Rev. 13 modern surveillance systems, that the false prophet and anti-Christ will use this mark as a way to track everyone and to know who has not sworn allegiance to the beast, the anti-Christ. Verse 15 says all that don’t will be killed. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.
The mark of the beast John is referring to will be during the Tribulation. Here’s the outcome of the beast(anti-Christ) and false prophet.
Rev. 20:4But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.
We can see now how easily people will be deluded into receiving the mark. The world is being conditioned, desensitized to it now. By the time in the Tribulation satan(the anti-Christ) uses it, it will be the norm. Even now, because of the Covid-19 virus they're those calling for everyone on the planet to be vaccinated and be micro-chipped to track those that have and have not been vaccinated. There are airlines, trains, all types of public transportation beginning to require proof of vaccination. The mark during the Tribulation will be used to track everyone. We see in Rev. 13 that the false prophet and anti-Christ will use this mark, possibly a microchip as a way to track everyone and to know who has and has not sworn allegiance to the beast, the anti-Christ. Verse 15 said all that don’t will be killed. Will the mark of the beast be a microchip? Don’t know. The point is that there is the technology now to do exactly what we are told in the Bible. John saw it.
We also see here with Rev. 13 the mention of the image of the Beast. Now, with advanced modern computer technology many believe this will be A.I., Artificial Intelligence. What John saw seemed liked it was alive. He heard it speak. It seemed real to John. It of course will be computers that will create the A.I. and be able to read the chips and track everyone and have all their information. Again, the point is the technology is here now to do exactly what we are told in the Bible.
Another fascinating statement in Rev. 11. Satellites.
Rev. 11: 3 And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” ….. 7 Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss(the anti-Christ) will attack them, and overpower and kill them. 8 Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city(Jerusalem)—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their Lord was crucified. 9 For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. 10 The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth. 11 But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. 12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.
Verse 9 says every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and verse 10 says the inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them. We see that everyone all over the whole world will watch when they are raised back to life and are taken up to heaven. No one could understand just how people all over the world could gaze on their bodies, how these verses could be meant literally until Satellite’s. We can understand this now because of satellite or cable T.V. Every day we watch things all over the world live, in real time. But it’s only been in like the last 40 years that this has been possible and yet, John saw this 2000 years ago. Jesus said, Mt. 24: 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Because of Satellites the Gospel is reaching the whole world. The Bible is full of statements like this.
We also see a good description of the use of nuclear weapons.
Zechariah 14: 12 This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. …. This is a perfect description of what happens in a thermal nuclear blast.
2 Peter 3: 10 But the day of the Lord(the Tribulation) will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. … All of this describes perfectly what takes place with a nuclear explosion.
Most of the Trumpets and Bowls in Revelation are describing the results of nuclear, biological and chemical warfare. None of this was possible until WWII and the invention of the atomic bomb. In Rev. 6 with the 6th seal, 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, (this is what happens with a nuclear explosion) and every mountain and island was removed from its place. And in Rev. 16 with the 7th bowl, 18 Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. 20 Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. 21 From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible. …. Verse 19 says ‘the cities of the nations collapsed.’ With enough nuclear strikes the faults under the earth will shift causing major earthquakes, volcanoes to erupt, massive tsunamis and mountains to crumble and the buildings in the cities around the world to collapse. The Tectonic plates will shift. The continents will change. With the 6th seal we see that every mountain and island was removed from its place, moved, but with the 7th bowl we see every mountain and island fled away, are completely gone. Hail of a 100 lbs, scientist call this a nuclear winter.
We see with the first trumpet, 7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. … Other than by a meteor or asteroid, which Revelation does appear to describe, this could only be done by nuclear weapons. Hail and fire coming down from the sky would be a good first century description of what nuclear missiles looked like. Mixed with blood would be describing all the death from all this. We see with the first two bowls of wrath that ugly, festering sores broke out on the people and the sea turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died and the rivers and springs of water became blood. This would be the results of all the radiation fallout. We see with the 4th seal a fourth of the world’s population is killed, with the 6th Trumpet we see a third of mankind is killed. We’re not given a percent during the bowls/vials, but the next logical percentage would be half of what’s left. None of this was possible until nuclear weapons. With the trumpets we see a third of everything affected, with the bowls everything in the whole world is. It’s global. See the Bible Lesson, How Severe will the Tribulation Be?
We see in Revelation that the Euphrates River will be dried up allowing the Kings of the East, China and the other Asian countries to come into the Middle East to attack the anti-Christ there. While the drying up of the Euphrates River could be done supernaturally by God or by a nuclear bomb, it can be done easily today. In Turkey there is now a dam called the Atatuak Dam that can be closed thus causing the river to be dried up. The Euphrates River is what separates the east from the west. China already has a highway to be used for military purposes that leads from China to the Middle East. In Rev. 9 John said, 16The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number. … An interesting fact about this verse is that during the time John was witnessing all this and writing it down, there wasn’t 200 million people in the whole known world. John said he heard their number. Because of China’s one child policy and selective births, aborting the girl babies China has more than a 14 to 1 boy to girl ratio. There’s not enough females for the males to marry which has caused a large majority of boys and men to join the military. Because of this China alone could have a 200 million manned army. Boy, the prophecies of the Bible are really precise.
Air Travel and the Internet. The Increase of Knowledge.
In Daniel 12 he is told, 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” And .. 9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand. … In Rev. 22 John was told, 10 Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this scroll, because the time is near. 11 Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy.” … We see in Rev. ch. 5 & 6 Jesus opening the seals of this scroll thus releasing the judgments contained in the scroll.
Many will go here and there to increase knowledge. We can now, because of air travel easily travel all over the world to colleges or seminars. Because of the internet knowledge can be increased very quickly. You’re reading this on the internet.
Because of modern technology and current world events from the last 100 years the words of the prophets are becoming clear, the wise, those who study the Bible, are beginning to understand. We can now see so many other statements from Jesus and the Prophets occurring literally right before our very eyes. As I’ve said before, if all the prophecies of Jesus’ first coming came true literally then we should expect all the prophecies leading up to his second coming to come true literally also. Well, that is exactly what we are seeing.
Jesus said, Mt. 24: 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. .. Like no other time in history, we’re beginning to see all these things happening simultaneously, at the same time, just like Jesus said they would. The signs are now converging together. With the way everything in the world is falling into place with Bible prophecy it makes you wonder, could it all be about to unfold? Could it actually be now, in our lifetime? Could the catching up of believers in Christ be closer than we actually think?
From seeing how accurate the Bible has foretold the future thousands of years in advance, it should be obvious, the Bible is indeed the Word of God and Jesus is Lord. If you have friends and family that don't believe in the Bible or Jesus, then share this. As I said above, Bible Prophecy is to be a witness that the Bible is the Truth.
It’s more important now than ever that All believers should know what the Bible teaches and to be aware of what is happening in the world today. Go to the Bible Lessons page. I have many lessons about the Rapture and End Time Prophecies.
You should learn all you can concerning what the Bible says is coming upon the world so you can share it with your unsaved friends and family. So you can warn them. For our time is short.
