The Internet is rapidly spreading to the most remote places on earth. In Nepal, for example, where many millions of people have no access to the electric grid and where a majority of villages can be reached only by walking over steep mountain trails, Internet penetration has nearly doubled in the last year to reach 16% of the population (“Internet Penetration Rate,” Kathmandu Post, March 28, 2012). Many villages in Nepal and India access the internet by mobile phones or cheap laptops charged by solar power. The existence of this technology is taken for granted in prophecies such as Revelation 11, which describes the whole world viewing the activities in Jerusalem pertaining to the Two Witnesses. “And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves” (Revelation 11:9).
