Knowledge shall be increased

Dan 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. 

Daniel was given  visions of the end, to be sealed in a book until the end times. The time of the end is described as many running to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
I see people restless, running here and there seeking escape. Those who come to Jesus will find their peace with wisdom and understanding from the LORD. Many others will be restless and worried. They will be running around not knowing what is coming, but having a sense that something is about to happen. Liberals will see their politically correct thinking no longer is the norm. Truth will be hated along with those who know their God. All who have faith in something are thought to be religious fanatics. Looting, rioting and lawlessness will increase. Knowledge of technology will increase making the world events known as they happen. There is no safe place to be.

2Ti 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Ti 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Ti 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Ti 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Ti 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

In all this confusion and breakdown of morality will the church be a light to the darkened world? Jesus asked a question of the church in the end times.

Luk 18:7  And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
Luk 18:8  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Some established churches will fail spiritually as they stray from God's truth. With the increase of knowledge there is more distractions of entertainment and the events of the world. The challenge is to increase in knowledge of the Holiness of God. We must stay in the word of God and pray without ceasing. We came to Jesus one by one and we increase in him personally. Gather with others of faith, but do not neglect your personal increase in the kingdom of God. Do not follow those who are going to and fro without direction. Do not listen to the false teachers. Be established and strengthened as you build your faith on the rock that is Jesus.
