I have before looked at many passages in the book of Revelation as requiring advanced technology. After all, John the Apostle had a limited vocabulary with which render his visions. But one passage I never actually linked to a technological advancement is this:

”And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed”

Revelation 13:15

This technology—or some refined form of it—could actually provide the basis for the moving and speaking image of the beast that the world will be asked to worship.
