1. The growth of knowledge would accelerate at the end of time (fulfilling prophecy). A well known prophecy in Daniel pertaining to the end of time is being fulfilled in our time. (Daniel 12:4 – “Knowledge shall increase and men shall run to and fro.” KJV)
Knowledge for many years was growing very slowly, but now is growing exponentially. For thousands of years until as recent as 150 years ago, the fastest mode of transportation was on the back of a horse or about 25 mph maximum. Now mankind has traveled over 25,000 mph on the way to the moon. What a difference! According to Norman Edmund, Founder of the Edmund Scientific Company, with computers and the Internet, the accessibility of information and knowledge is doubling probably every year and will double every 73 days by the year 2020.
2. Tsunamis and Typhoons wiping out many people. Around 20 B.C., God said Tsunamis and Typhoons will bring an end to the world.
3. The coming financial collapse in countries around the world and in the USA will be devastating and create a demand for governmental intervention at the cost of liberties
Many economic cycle/wave theorists are predicting that the economy/stock market will reach a peak and begin a long downtrend that will accelerate [This is happening, isn’t it?]. Proponents of the 30, 50 and 60 year cycle theory are stating that the coming collapse will closely mimic and surpass the crash of 1929, the gradual slowdown beginning sometime in the fall of 1999. As we approach this time, its imperative that we remember, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart by also.”
4. The accelerating pace of moral decline
The increase of sexual immorality (including promiscuity and adultery in the heterosexual population, the strengthening of the gay/lesbian movement in political and media circles), the prevalence of lying (perjury), stealing (blue or white collar), disrespect for parents, covetousness, and hatred among the nations will accelerate the advent of God’s wrath against the world as a whole.
5. The accelerating growth of spiritualism and its pervasive teachings Multiple pagan groups are indicating that something major will happen at or around the year 2000. Followers of writers of the occult are predicting a global initiation, a “blood bath” of some sort, before the New World Order, with Lucifier (Satan) at its head, can take over. This involves the “termination” of those who resist the movement. The appearance of evil spirits posing as Mary, other “saints” and “departed loved ones” which were prophesied by a latter day prophet are rapidly increasing.
