Knowing? Knowledge!

“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 12:4)

Knowledge shall increase? Never would I have given much thought to this seemingly casual comment in Daniel! However, that being a rather prophetic style book, this phrase may have greater significance. I decided to take note and, yes, I see knowledge growing as if at the speed of light. May we find understanding also.

Increasing Knowledge

Knowledge shall increase

Does that mean we will know more,

Or more surely know what’s already known?

Light may shine brighter

Darkness become darker

The sword of truth sharper

Understanding much greater

Long days growing longer

While time passes faster.


One thought on “Knowing? Knowledge!

  1. And “many shall run to and fro.”

    In CS Lewis’ *Out of the Silent Planet, *Ransom notes how difficult it is to explain to the natives of Mars the great investment on earth in roadbeds and vehicles dedicated to moving objects from one place to another.
