There are things in the book of Revelation in the Bible, that did not make sense until the present modern times. For example, when the two witnesses are killed in Jerusalem, it says the whole world, every tribe, language and nation, watches them as they get up again. That is only possible with modern television satellites and Internet. And even the way they celebrate, by “sending gifts” to one another all around the world, portends Amazon.com and the Internet, and sending gifts by mail.
“⁸And their corpses lie on the boulevard of the great city which is spiritually named Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. ⁹And from peoples and tribes and languages and nations they see their corpses for three and a half days. And they are not allowing their corpses to be placed in a grave. ¹⁰And those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them, and celebrate, and will send gifts to one another. For these two prophets had tormented those dwelling on the earth.”
And speaking of the Internet and satellites, the scenario of the Beast in Revelation chapter 13 controlling the ability of everyone on the planet to buy or sell, would not be possible in the ancient world, or even 40 years ago. This is only possible with the Internet and satellites, and requires every tribesman in the Congo or Indonesia to be “connected” and “wired.” No wonder that so called “charitable endeavors” try to get everyone in Africa onto electricity. That combined with outlawing cash, on the pretext that only criminals use cash.
