    It seems as of late this book is being fulfilled (http://www.christianbook.com/cyber-...tt=944175&item_code=&Ntk=keywords&event=ESRCP). Have not read it yet but plan too soon. I am well familiar with the author and have read bits and pieces of his cyber meltdown views in his other prophecy books and its good stuff and seems to take a part in the last days.

    These days most it seems rather have a smart phone and social networking access over eating food and reading the Bible, so parts of this book seem are being fulfilled as I type. I wonder what would happen if the prophecies predicted in the book occurred? Can people survive these days without smart phones and Facebook or would society collapse? In 1998 and prior I had no smart phone nor a cell phone and I survived. I used dial up and no Facebook access. Things were very different in those days and I wonder if the country is on its way to a cyber meltdown.

    The news frightens me over what may happen next and I can only speculate. Red Dawn? Perhaps.. Cyber meltdown and a threat to our technological infrastructure? Most likely.

    So are you prepping for it? Or are you banking on being raptured safely away out of it?

    I see that the headline prophecy books have been updated. Eagerly waiting release of a book 20 years from now - - "DNA Meltdown " talking about how the antichrist will use technological advances in DNA engineering to enslave people.

    I think of it differently. Maintaining that technology would allow the "world" to see prophesy unfolding. With cyberland in tact, the world seems even closer to that fulfillment.

    But society itself is far from "dependent" on social media. If it were to crash, the world would tick on without a hitch (but perhaps with grumbling). It is nothing for a Christian to fear.

    Is it possible for you to actually make an argument? If not watch the Hobbit and learn from Radascar the brown wizard and his sled and who drove the sled?

    No man knows when Christ will return and it is a total waste of time and effort to be concerned about it.

    Christ will return when He returns. Our duty is to live each day for him and not be concerned about tomorrow.

    Yes...possible...but difficult. :smilewinkgrin:

    I did make an argument, BTW, that I believe social media and cyberland may be used to fulfill prophesy (rather than the fulfillment of prophesy meaning the crash of cyberland). Do you think that there is any merit in that idea (that technology now makes it possible for us to see what is going on around the world, and that this may play into the fulfillment of prophesy?).

    Stalin and Hitler were a duo before Gorby and before the there were numerous popes. I bet if there were any pre-trib-dispensational Southern Baptists around during the War of Northern Aggression that Lincoln was the antichrist!

    I have posted the following before but:

    As I recall the "rapture ready" folks thought that with the turn of the Millennium they would disappear and the GT would start. Bad things have been happening at least since the Flood and will continue to happen until Jesus Christ returns!

    Wait, I thought Napoleon was the antichrist...

    Evan, what are you doing having knowledge about the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings? Won't that open your mind to the influences of Satan?
