We know from the prophecy of the angel at the end of the book of Daniel in chapter 12 verse 4 that knowledge will increase in the end times. Right now we are in a knowledge explosion to where it won’t be long before someone says “hey, let’s build a tower up to Heaven…” The Tower of Babel probably came from a similar inspiration of the fallen to expand mankind’s mind while pilfering their soul. There is something about knowledge that puffs us up and convinces us we are more then we really are. All you have to do is listen to a pompous PhD or scientist’s arrogance that seeps from their pores to see what knowledge can and does do. Is it no wonder that God uses the simple things of the world to confound the wise who are wise in their own eyes but not in God’s. The wisdom in question is not from above but from the one who fell from above because they no longer belonged there. I guess misery loves company!
16For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
We are leaving the LIGHT on. It’s getting dark out there!
