The World Wide Web (WWW) is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by URLs, interlinked by hypertext links, and can be accessed via the Internet. The World Wide Web was invented by English scientist Tim Berners-Lee in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN in Switzerland.
It has become known simply as the Web. The World Wide Web was central to the development of the Information Age and is the primary tool billions of people use to interact on the Internet.
“But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” Daniel 12:4
I find it interesting that the Web was designed by an English Scientist that worked for CERN. So CERN appears to be unlocking all sorts of portals. And we can see how relatively young the web is. All done within our life time. All Christian Scholars of prophecy seem to agree that this prophecy in Daniel was sealed by God until the time of the end, when knowledge increased. Enter the WWW… (world wide web). Never before has knowledge been able to travel in miliseconds around the world. We can communicate with ease with someone in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. All parts of the Globe, even remote parts. This isn’t a post about the Web, but as I was talking with a friend and discussing what her sister said about the Web years ago, we realized all the darkness that could surround this. Much like what was said about the airplane; “God gave man the ability to fly and soon he was dropping bombs killing people.” I can’t remember who said that, but it stuck with me.
Anyway, this Sister said years ago that the Web would be a tool of satan. She said that much evil would spread at lightening speed with this. Think about the name for a minute, the WEB, like the web a spider weaves to kill it’s prey. Then it birthed the INTERNET. A net to capture and ensnare. Wow, you can’t really make this up. God gave this Sister a vision of all this as soon as it was created.
While it was only a few years ago that I entered into the information world of the web, it soon became clear that this could destroy whole families, spread deception, and terror. We are witnessing this today with Daesh using the Web to recruit and spread their terroristic religion. Child pornography and human trafficking is spreading yet today. Many unsuspecting children become prey to perverts disguised as friends.
Daniel saw this, and was told about how information and people would increase running to and fro obtaining and seeking knowledge. We are living in this age. We have watched the evils unfold rapidly connected to the web we are all now caught in. Bank accounts, Social Media, even TV is now digitalized and on the Web.
But what Satan meant for evil, again we see God using for Good. Never have we been able to fulfill the commandment of Christ to make disciples of all men. Until now. Jesus said when talking about end times there would be wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, plague, famine, but not to worry until all the world heard the Gospel. Well this is the tool that took the Gospel of Christ, and is continuing to take it to all the world. We can not be afraid to speak out.
One problem with this though is that people don’t have to really feel like they have to take responsibility for their actions. People are quick to shoot hatred and condemnation when otherwise they might remain silent. Whole websites are dedicated to hatred, fake news, and deception. We have even seen our own president using this as a tool for propaganda. They have taken the office of Propaganda that Hitler rose to power with to a whole new level. Imagine what destruction Hitler would have done with the Web? His dream of ruling the world would most likely have been recognized. We have that same spirit alive again, and now has the darkest tool ever.
But we also have this same tool, and we can speak out and shine light through the tunnel. We live in exciting times. The times the Prophets and disciples of Christ longed to see. We are in the end times spoken of by Daniel and the Prophets, Christ also told us the signs to watch for. So much has changed in only 50 years, I can’t believe it. We must speak out and use all available resources to spread the light of Christ. I refuse to be ashamed or intimidated as some groups like the ACLU and others would have us feel. We must speak out while we still can. I heard rumors of the UN passing international laws against what they label as hate speech, when in reality it’s freedom of speech and religion.
So what Satan thought was his tool to destroy God turned it and used it for His will and prophecy. Use it while we can. For there is coming a night when no man can work. We have a choice, we can use this Net to catch men like Christ did. Or we can be caught in this net of darkness.
