Daniel 12:4

"But you Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."

Daniel 12:4
By Jennifer Sides © 2009

I know that a couple of the statements I am going to make in this article are going to seem absolutely absurd to some of you. They are going to seem so off the wall you may not even finish reading. If you do continue; it may because you wonder what I am going to say that is just as off the wall as the last statement. That’s OK – I can take it. If these are not your beliefs – I do challenge you to at least read and question this article enough to study the word of God and draw a conclusion from a biblical standpoint.

In Genesis Chapter 3 Satan convinced Eve that if she took a bite of the apple she would be like God, knowing good and evil. After she took a bite of the apple she also offered a bite to Adam. Then the eyes of both of them were opened. They realized they were naked and covered themselves with fig leaves. In the cool of the day they heard the Lord God walking in the midst of the garden and hid themselves. The Lord called out to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” Adam answered the Lord by saying, “he had heard him in the garden and hid himself because he was naked.”

Today we live in a generation where many men do not see how naked and miserable they are. Blind and wretched they have been deceived even more so than Eve was in the garden because they have tasted much knowledge from the works of their hands. Therefore, they think of themselves as a god without need of the true living God. At least Adam and Eve felt enough shame to cover themselves while on the other hand the society we live in today bares all. This world has become so desensitized to the sound of the Lord dwelling in our midst that it has become demoralized.

The Lord addresses this problem to the church of Laodicea in Revelation 3:17-18. Jesus says, “Because you say, “I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing – and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked – I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with salve, that you may see.

All through the Tribulation period during the book of Revelation the mindset of those who do not allow the Lord to open their eyes will perish. Eventually they will hide themselves as Adam and Eve but to a far greater extent. During the sixth seal of Revelation 6:16 they will ask the rocks from the mountains to fall on them and hide them from the great day of wrath because they will no longer be able to stand before Him.

This is where I bring in Daniel 12:4 which says, "But you Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase." I believe the “time of the end” in Daniel 12:4 is speaking of this day and age. “Knowledge increasing” is describing advances in technology in recent years. With that said, I would like to point out that much of technology has increased since Israel became a nation in 1948. I believe that Israel’s existence today plays a significant role in this topic being they had to become a nation for much of today’s prophecies to be fulfilled.

The first time a man walked on the moon was in 1969. Although I do not remember such; being that I was only watching it at the age of 6 months. What I do remember about thirty too thirty-five years ago was sitting in front of my T.V. wishing I could just press some kind of a magic button and whatever toy I wanted would be mine in an instant. With the downside of having to pay money that does not grow on trees like I thought when I was a child; the internet has made my wish come true.

The first national network of satellite television, called Orbita, was created in the Soviet Union in 1967. I believe the satellite plays a big role in prophecy. There are a couple of places mentioned in scripture where I believe satellite television along with wireless internet will play a vital role. Ezekiel Chapter 38 is referring to Israel being attacked by Russia, Libya, Ethiopia, Persia and other countries. In verse 17 the Lord says, “All the nations will see those events take place right before their eyes.” It’s nothing nowadays to watch battles taking place such as in Desert Storm while reporters travel along in jeeps with the troops. Reporters watch from inside rooms in Jerusalem while scud missiles light up the dark skies. The reason the world sees what happens in Israel in Ezekiel Chapter 38 is so the nations who see may know Him.

My next example is in Revelation 11:1-10 which speaks of two witnesses. There will be two witnesses (possibly Moses and Elijah) who are given power to prophesy for 1,260 days. The beast who ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them killing them. In the process (Rev. 11:9) the people who dwell on the earth will see and rejoice while sending gifts to one another. People all over the world will see this and have some sort of celebration like it is Christmas or something.

Other than the fact that Saddam Hussein was not a man of God, it will be like the day Iraqi soldiers fired their guns up in the air and handed candy to the children on the streets when he was captured. Triumphal music blared from radios, bus passengers flashed victory signs and pickup trucks raced through the streets, honking their horns. Revelers sprayed drinks on each other, and crowds paid Saddam the ultimate insult by beating his picture with their shoes. Reporters were shouting, “Death to Saddam!” All of that was on the news for the world to see! Less than 50 years ago it would not have been possible to watch live footage of such events!

Big brothers can be great to pal around with and watch over us when the need arises but technology has taken the term “Big Brother” to a whole new level. It has become so advanced that back in July 22nd, 2007 Israel launched one to spy on the Iranians. At the time it also made Israel one of the leading countries in the world in satellite development. We have indeed reached a new era of satellite capabilities for many uses. Attaining knowledge from a spy is not much needed anymore when there is an eye in the sky recording all activity. I have no doubt that Satan’s ultimate plan is to use it as a tracking device against those who do not take the mark of the beast mentioned in Revelation 13:18.

This brings me to the subject of R.F.I.D. technology. I am so against the idea I will not even get a chip put into my dog if it was a free lifetime guarantee program. Maybe now would be a good time to bring this to your attention. On May 12, 2009 VeriChip Corporation completed the development of a new 8 millimeter RFID implantable microchip. You can read about it in the “One World Order” section of my blog. Better yet; you can go check it out on VeriChips personal website. They are so proud of their accomplishments that they have it posted for the whole world to see. Get it – For the whole world to see. With spy satellites and R.F.I.D. technology, you may be able to run out of breath trying to escape but you will never be able to hide.

Last but not least I bring up cloning. This will probably seem like the most controversial topic in this article to you. I believe that humans can be cloned at this moment even if there may not be scientific evidence or proof that we have been informed of. If cloning has taken place with as many animals as we have been told then I have no reason to believe science has not advanced far enough to clone a human. I think the only reason it has not been done to our knowledge is because our morals and standards seem to have placed it in the “taboo” category. But as we have seen in recent months our standards as a whole have sunk to an all time low as homosexuals have come out from hiding in the closet. Now we have a President who supports it and has even made it a month of celebration.

There are two reasons why I mention cloning in this article. The first can be found in Genesis Chapter 2:7 when God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being. At that point in time man was immortal. Here is where we come back full circle with man wanting to be like God. I would personally think that man creating man is the closest possible way to being like God. Well, I guess creating the universe would be next; but do you see what I mean? Man has been trying to reverse mortality with immortality. Being born again by asking Jesus into your heart is the only way for that desire to be fulfilled. Do you want to be born again? Tell Him you are sorry for all the sins you have committed against Him and to come into your heart and dwell and give you everlasting life. Put Him first and obey the Commandments which were presented to us in Exodus Chapter 20. The sins you committed are the 10 Commandments. Jesus died on the cross to take your sins away so you can be made new.

I believe cloning could possibly be what the book of Revelation is talking about in Chapters 13:2 & 13:15. There will be an image made of the beast who will be wounded by the sword. The image will live as breath is given to it. I believe this image will be a clone of the antichrist. Even if I am wrong this will be where so many people believe that he is Jesus because he lived. He has a head wound so severe there is no way he could have possibly lived. I personally do not know of any other way it could be possible unless it was a clone. Do you have any ideas? They believe so deeply he is Jesus that they even take the mark of the beast 666. Whether you are a believer or not, I encourage you to read these things for yourself and see whether these things are true.

Although Adam and Eve along with multitudes of people today seek divine knowledge in one way or another; it is not the knowledge the Lord desires them to possess. Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Proverbs 1:7 says, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Don’t be a fool. 2nd Corinthians 6:2 says, “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”

May the Lord bless you with His wisdom and knowledge,
