Commentary By: Gordon King
There are reports that say we are headed for severe food shortages and very high prices this summer, they even claim that there will be famines in parts of the world.
There is currently a shortage of fertilizer in the world, not to mention increasingly higher prices for fuel, leaving many famers unable to plant crops or deliver them to market. The war in Ukraine has also affected the food supply, as well as sanctions placed upon Russia, and unusual weather patterns. All of this and more is leading to a shortage of food, a scarcity of food, and inflated food prices.
It seems as though what was told to happen in the book of Revelation is beginning to happen, as if we are in the beginning of the Tribulation period. But we are not, however, I do believe that what we are seeing is a precursor to the things that will happen during that time, that those things are actually casting a shadow upon us now, and that this is how close we are to the Tribulation period.
Things in this world will get bad, we see it already. However, during the Tribulation period things will be much, much worse! I believe that the good Lord is giving us warnings of things to come, to the closeness of the Tribulation period.
There will be war and rumors of war, famines, and pestilence, these are the beginning of sorrows, and I believe that is what we are seeing take place now.
The world is a mess and getting worse by the day; look up my friends, for your redemption draws near!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
