PROPHECY FULFILLING IN YOUR HANDS
Visual images have come a long way via, television, cinema, video, DVD, internet, electronic billboards etc; is something qualitatively new to man today, but a past tense to prophecy. It is the field of vision that has power to control the masses. A lot of science, technology and inventions occur, because God allows it to fulfill his prophecies by his servants the prophets. This message has to do with Revelations 11:1-14.
The history of television, the early black and white, then the color and the digital are all the hand of prophecy on earth. The evolution of television, video, cameras, recording and broadcast equipment and the interesting biographies about television inventors such as Zworykin, Baird, Farnsworth, Paiva, Figuier and others; show the hand of God putting prophecy fulfilling mechanism in motion.
Psalms 135:6, “WHATSOEVER THE LORD PLEASED, THAT DID HE IN HEAVEN, AND IN EARTH, IN THE SEAS AND ALL DEEP PLACES.”
Historically television started around 1878 which was called the era of “seeing by electricity,” to demonstration of television in 1926 by Baird and up to 1944, when war brought the advance of the technology to a temporary halt. Early Cathode-ray tubes called Kinescope in 1927, the Iconoscope and early television cameras were part of the initial advances.
In the 1900 world fair (Paris), 1st international congress of electricity was held. During this meeting a Russian, Perskyi made the first known use of the word “television.” Jenkins in USA and Baird in England, got the 1st television programming on the air in the 1920s. Jenkins also broadcast the first television commercial in 1930. In the 1920s Zworkin introduced his first iconoscope camera tube which he called an “electric eye.” In 1927 Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hover was the ‘star’ of the show and he said, “Today we have in a sense, the transmission of SIGHT for the first time in the history of the world. Human genius has now destroyed the impediment of distance in a new respect, and in a manner hitherto unknown.” Revelations 11 coming on gradually. This was published in the New York Times in the 1920s. But the American public, not to talk of the world in general, remained largely unaware of and completely untouched by television and not many are related to this, even today.
Today, in less than 50years, the world has come a very long way, where Tony Fadell, Steve Job, Bill Gates and so many behind the scene workers have advanced technology in the computer realm. This advancement has produced energy, power and control, over human activities the world over. Satellite, television and computers have merged to produce wonders, like cell phone and i-phones with different capabilities. INTERNET is now the most powerful and controlling weapon on earth TODAY. It is all computer vels, but the BIBLE was and is still way ahead of science and technology.
Daniel 11:38 “BUT IN HIS ESTATESHALL HE HONOUR THE GOD OF FORCES: AND A god WHOM HIS FATHERS KNEW NOT SHALL HE HONOUR WITH GOLD, AND SILVER, AND WITH PRECIOUS STONES, AND PLEASANT THINGS.”
In the end the, “man of sin will lay hold on the world computer technology which is a force and will use it to control the world in every way possible. Now let us see which way science and technology of computers is taking us to. I have made a brief attempt to show us the power of prophecy. God can direct science, technologies and humans to fulfill prophecies. Right now in every home, work place, school, public places we can see the influence of computer technology. Our daily transactions, banking, on-line education and even religious worship have come to the level of computer chips. It makes life on earth easier but takes over control of your life and this control will definitely end in the hands of he who has no desire for mankind but himself. Daniel 11:37, “Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.”
Today at airports, important buildings and homes we have computerized cameras watch us all. What chance has anyone in terms of privacy and secrecy? We are hurrying towards a totally cashless society and know it not. There are good reasons to go cashless but at what cost? It will cost you your freedom. The anti-Christ is on the move and people know it not. The only way of escaping this is the TRANSLATION. Are you ready to escape? If not imagine the alternative, the mark of the beast; REVELATION 13.
As we use modern technologies, the hand held cell phones that are found even in the most remote jungles of the world are now becoming the most popular. It is one of the most amazing and prophetic technologies since Noah’s Ark. It is a powerful technology, that can be used anywhere in the world where there is access. It is a technology that has voice, picture, communication, color and sound. Satelite computer technology makes all this possible. More complex cell phones, i-phones and i-pods are coming very soon. It will be the ultimate television in your HAND. Why is this technology important you may ask? Prophecy is fulfilling in your hands and will be clearer in REVELATION 11. This looks like freedom but it is actually the height of CONTROL.
The significance of this visual technology, now available everywhere around the world, and that will become more sophisticated, is that God spoke about it to John the Apostle, 2000 years ago.
REVELATIONS 11:7-14, “AND THEY OF THE PEOPLE AND KINDREDS AND TONGUES AND NATIONS SHALL SEE THEIR DEAD BODIES THREE DAYS AND AN HALF AND SHALL NOT SUFFER THEIR DEAD BODIES TO BE PUT IN THE GRAVES.”
Technologies put together will make it possible for people everywhere to SEE this event, and the hand held technologies will make it possible. This is an important chapter of the Bible, this chapter is during the GREAT TRIBULATION, spoken of written by Daniel the prophet, spoken by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:21 and Luke 21 and Mark 13:19; seen by John the apostle in Revelations 11:9. During this great tribulation of three and one half years, the two olive trees before the God of the earth, who are also the two candle sticks and the two witnesses at the mount of transfiguration (St. Luke 9:28-36); The LAW AND THE PROPHET.
These two witnesses will be killed after they have a three and one half year shown down with the anti-Christ, the false prophet and the unbelieving world. The two witnesses bring judgment, bitterness, torment and indescribable fear on the whole world of the anti-Christ system. The Translation has already occurred. The world gets in a celebration mood over the death of the two witnesses, the world over.
REVELATIONS 11:10, “AND THEY THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL REJOICE OVER THEM, AND MAKE MERRY, AND SHALL SEND GIFTS ONE TO ANOTHER; BECAUSE THESE TWO PROPHETS TORMENTED THEM THAT DWELT ON THE EARTH.”
After the days of their prophecies, they were killed by the beast that came out of the bottomless pit. The whole world, the Bible said, sees their dead bodies in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. This is obviously Jerusalem, where the anti-Christ makes his capital during the last three and one half years of the great tribulation period.
The question now is, “HOW CAN THE WHOLE WORLD SEE THIS SIGHT,” it is becoming clearer each day with advances in technology. This will be possible by SATELITE, CELL PHONES, I-PODS, I-PHONES, ALL EQUIPED WITH COMPLEX COMPUTER AND INTERNET CAPABILITIES. Today unlike in the past, technology is bringing this condition to a place where this prophecy will come to pass.
All computers, cell phones etc, with internet capabilities and access, will see what is happening anywhere in the world. In the last few days the world saw, uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya and even the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. This was made possible by technology. People did not need to go before a television to see these events. You can ‘SEE’ it not just hear it according to the Bible when the two witnesses will be killed in Jerusalem, during the great tribulation. The technology is here and improving and becoming more available globally. This seems to point to the fact that the TIME is around us. The TRANSLATION will take place before this showdown. This will occur during the seven years of the GREAT TRIBULATION which is also called Daniels 70thweek, Daniel 9:27. It will occur in JERUSALEM. If the technology to show this, is around, then for sure we are around the TIME.
Now is the time to get ready to meet with Jesus Christ and our brethren who are asleep in the Lord.
1st Thessalonians 4:16
“FOR THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH A SHOUT, WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCH-ANGEL, AND WITH THE TRUMP OF GOD: AND THE DEAD IN CHRIAT SHALL RISE FIRST: THEN WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR: AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD.”
If you are not saved by accepting Our Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, who took all your sins, forgave and filled you with his Holy Spirit and you are still physically alive then if you miss the TRANSLATION the fault is your own. If you are in doubt and you see the two witnesses killed in your computer aided technology; you have been left behind. The technology to allow people all over the world to SEE the death of these two witnesses may be in your hand now, TIME is short, delusion is coming, do not allow the prophecy of REVELATIONS 11 fulfill in your, hand, time and life.
