I don't know if it's old age setting in, but I feel like the world is moving too fast and changing massively to the point I can't keep up. Elderly people would say to me as a child, they felt things were starting to go too fast and they were right! Things have only increased in pace. Do you feel like time is speeding up?
This blogger warns about How Nothing Feels Stable anymore, [this is where I got the video as well] and the sentiment is widespread. A non-Christian even told me the other day..."Don't You Know the Poles are shifting!, that's why everything is going so nuts!" We are facing incredible weather scenarios, that seem to be increasing such as the latest " snowpocalypse"--ironic name that, hearing about the worsening situation in Egypt, with worldwide food riots and shortages predicted. This world is going nuts, and it's not all far away news as anymore that remains abstract, for many the economy and constant weather problems and more cause personal trial and tribulation. Here one must trust in God and seek to put it all in a biblical context.
However notice as you watch the video the incredible expanse in knowledge, where it says that a entire week of the New York Times would outdistance some one's whole life knowledge in the 18th century and the massive amount of information now being sent around the world in seconds. We are at a time in history where things have grown so complex, there is even far more possibilities of deception. Knowledge has literally exploded. The world is changing on a speeded up scale.
We are seeing Bible Prophecy being fulfilled, and this is one verse that is majorly being fulfilled.
Dan 12:4 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 be increased.
"many shall run to and fro" describes these times!
Some of the scoffers [2 Peter 3:3]say well times have always been like this. Yes there always has been tribulation in this world, but to ignore even the increased incredible changes and expanse in knowledge is to ignore what the Bible tells us.
To make sense of everything and to avoid drowning in information, today it is imperative to listen to God and His Word. The knowledge we seek must be God's
2Pe 3:18 But grow in grace, and [in] the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him [be] glory both now and for ever. Amen.
