Prophecy Sign #3: Dramatic Increase in Travel and Knowledge.  Global Satellite Communications

Sign #3
Global Satellite Communciations

Revelation 11:9-10 (NIV)
9 For three and a half days men 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...

Daniel 12:4
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.

What it looks like

In the last decade there has been an explosive increase in travel and knowledge, especially with the advent of the Jet Age and the Internet.  The world has become a global community and economy.

The Book of Revelation tells us the inhabitants of the earth will be able to simultaneously view the dead bodies of the Two Witnesses in Jerusalem. As recently as 100 years ago, these verses were difficult to comprehend.  In fact, this was impossible until global satellite technology was invented in this generation.

There are literally thousands of satellites in space making our world a global community. We witness news around the world as it happens. Our generation is the first to be able to literally watch and see all the events of the Book of Revelation come to pass.

Travel & Knowledge – In the Book of Daniel, an angel told Daniel to keep the prophecies revealed to him a secret until a later date. But what later date? The angel said, “Until the end times, when travel and knowledge will increase” (Daniel 12:4). In other words, a significant increase in travel and knowledge will mark the end times and the time just prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Have we seen such an increase? I think the answer is obvious. For all of human history right up until the early 19th Century, the fastest mode of land-based transportation was a horse. Yet today, we can travel to the other side of the earth in a matter of hours. As for an increase in knowledge, think about how much information in on the Internet. In 1990, there was only one website. Six years later, the Internet featured more than one hundred thousand. And a decade later? One hundred million. Today, estimates place the number of websites at somewhere around six hundred million. And that number will be out of date before you read this.
