There are many things in scripture. Huge things and small things. A few examples regarding the state of man and society: Scripture says we’ll be going to and fro, knowledge will increase, people will be proud, boasters, lovers of themselves, lovers of money, without natural affection, scoffers…
It’s true these things have always been around, but it seems to me technology and our changing morals has allowed them to worsen exponentially.
For example, going to and fro. With the 20th century advances in travel, the automobile, modern highway system and of course the airplane, trips that used to take months can be made in hours.
Knowledge will increase. Not only have we made schools available to most everyone, but with the creation of the internet, a world ok knowledge is available to anyone with a computer.
As for pride, boasting, lovers of self and money, yup, they’ve always been around. But, as with the other things, making money seems to be an obsession in society. There are more millionaires and billionaires now than ever and people are making that kind of money in endeavors undreamed of until fairly recently. Sports, entertainment, music, and again the internet has facilitated money making.
Without natural affection… This is one I think has especially come to fruition in some notable ways. What is natural affection? The love of mother to her child? The love of a man to his wife and vice versa? As I look at society I observe a noticable difference and s shift of focus in both. Abortion, child neglect and abuse, broken homes, out of wedlock births and the rise of militant homosexuality and the fairly recent trans and multi gender movement. None of these is natural, meaning according to God’s will and plan.
These things are the tip of the iceberg in end times prophecies…
