Breitbart: The IMF has become the most recent global body to release a warning regarding potentially forthcoming global food shortages, saying that vulnerable nations are at risk of civil unrest amid supply issues.
Civil unrest linked to sky-high food prices is on the cards for poorer countries, the IMF has warned amid fears that the world could be heading into a global food crisis as a result of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
Amid past warnings of starvation and “Hell on Earth” migrant crises over a lack of food, the international finance body has predicted that growth across the world will be negatively affected, with poorer nations in particular to feel the brunt of the ongoing crisis.
According to a post on the organisation’s website, a mix of high inflation and supply problems are to greatly slow economic growth across the world, with vulnerable economies, in particular, to be hit with the brunt of the hardship.
“This crisis unfolds even as the global economy has not yet fully recovered from the pandemic,” the post penned by the group’s research department director, Pierre-Olivier Gourinchas.
Opinion: “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:7-8
The passage is not about today. That each event mentioned by Jesus appears to be happening today is a gift of prophecy. The events are what is to come.
How do I know that? The church is still here (1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess. 4:16-17; Rev. 3:10), and tribulation events are ‘things which will take place after this’ (Rev. 1:19).
We have quoted Pastor David Jeremiah several times: ‘prophetic events cast a shadow before them.’ Matthew 24 casts a big shadow as does Revelation 6:5-6 popping up in news headlines with great regularity, giving us further evidence of the closeness of the hour.
“And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”
In the final book of the Revelation, hyperinflation will make every commodity so expensive that only the 1% (oil and wine) will be able to afford them.
The opening judgments of the 7 year tribulation.
Revelation 6:1-2: The White Horse Rider brings a false Christ who comes in peace but whose goal is to conquer (Matthew 24:5).
Revelation 6:3-4; The Red Horse Rider takes peace from the earth with wars and rumors of war (Matthew 24:6).
Revelation 6:5-6: The Black Horse Rider carries scales with which to measure the comparative value of money and food (Matthew 24:7b).
Revelation 6:7-8: The Pale Horse Rider brings death from pandemic and wild animals. 25% of the world will perish (Matthew 24:21).
Now go back to the 4 verses that many of you probably skipped over (1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess. 4:16-17; Rev. 3:10). That event, the Rapture, is sign-less and could happen at any time.
