Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg stated his belief that the world is in need of a ‘global superstructure’ in a recent article from the New York Times Magazine.
“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 (KJV)
We have gotten to used to communicating on Facebook that we no longer see it for the prophetical fulfillment it truly is. As of this writing, Facebook has 1,860,000,000 daily users posting and reading content around the globe, and is growing at a rate of 17% each year. Is short, it is the single greatest communication device ever conceived by mankind, second only to the Internet itself.
In an article titled “Can Facebook Fix It’s Own Worst Bug?” author Farhad Manjoo poses the question, “Mark Zuckerberg now acknowledges the dangerous side of the social revolution he helped start. But is the most powerful tool for connection in human history capable of adapting to the world it created?”

Zuckerberg highlighted Facebook’s “safety check” feature which allows users to publicly acknowledge that they’re safe during dangerous events. Zuckerberg later expanded on this, describing a “global superstructure to advance humanity.” Zuckerberg stated, “we’re getting to a point where the biggest opportunities I think in the world … problems like preventing pandemics from spreading or ending terrorism, all these things, they require a level of coordination and connection that I don’t think can only be solved by the current systems that we have.”
The author of the article states, “What’s needed, he argues, is some global superstructure to advance humanity.”
The prophet Daniel states that “knowledge will increase” in the end times, and people will “run to and fro”. In Facebook, nearly one-third of all humanity “visit” with each other every day. Without leaving your computer, you can virtually travel to and spend time with anyone on your friends list. You can see their photos, watch their videos, and then tap to open Messenger and call them all without ever leaving Facebook. Soon, Virtual Reality devices developed by Facebook will let you interact in 3-D.
And now the person that created the single-largest communication device in human history is calling for a One World Government. Living in the end times is a lot like living in a city with a lot of smog. When I lived in Los Angeles, I could not see the smog no matter how thick it got because I was in the middle of it. But on my way back from the beach, and viewing LA from a distance, I could clearly see the ring of smog choking the city.
And so it is with Bible prophecy. Viewed from a distance you have clarity, but when you live in a time where it’s being fulfilled it is much harder to discern what’s happening. But God’s people know what’s going on.
