"We Live in Biblical Times"
Isn't this the most exciting "Bible Times" in the history of mankind?
live in the "time of the end"
that the prophet Daniel wrote of and desired to "see",
a time when "many would run to and fro"
and "knowledge would be increased"
and the "seals" of the great book, God's Word,
would be opened and "unveiled" by the Lamb of God (Rev. 6:1)
to "the wise".
To those who sincerely study His Word and hear His voice.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
The words of the prophet were to be closed up and sealed until the time of the end.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

aka "the last days",
understand what was written concerning the events of this final generation.
 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Consider now the times!
about the incredible technological age of increased knowledge
and information and global communications in which we live!
Even the "scoffers" (2 Pet. 3:3) MUST admit there has NEVER been a time like this in the history of mankind!

the time when half the souls to ever "walk under the sun" are presently alive in the flesh
and will soon face the glistening one (Satan as Antichrist)
who as the great dragon drew one third of God's children (Rev. 12:4) away from the mercy seat of His truth
and justice in "the world that then was" (2 Pet. 3:6).
to His ways caused our Father to pour out His wrath upon that world,
that first earth age, and "by His fierce anger" it did PERISH!

the time Joel the prophet called "the last days",
the time when the "wise" sons and daughters,
God's servants and handmaidens would come to "see and understand"
the visions and the dreams of the prophets and begin to teach (prophesy) to their brothers and sisters, i.e.
they would teach the now "unsealed" visions of the prophets to their brothers and sisters.

on that first Pentecost Day following the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
