Hunger Forecast -- from several sources.

The E.D. of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger says the situation is "miserable" with 1.4 million New Yorkers who cannot afford enough food. Food demand is going up, riots are increasing, prices are increasing, weather is causing lower supply levels, and we're only one serious drought away from a calamity. Read the material in the attached link for all the details.

But you know, we were warned. Revelations 18:8 says this about Babylon (symbolic of the ungodly world or nations today): "Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her."

Thank goodness, those of us that have faith in Christ have this other verse, Romans 8:35, which says, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?"  No, nothing will separate us from CHRIST'S love for us.  He will see those that are His through it all. Maybe it's time we consider this real seriously. The signs are all here.

And as Christians, this is no excuse to do nothing. We are called to do all we can to help others in need -- including feeding their stomachs or more importantly helping them learn how to do it themselves through sustainable farming and other skills we can pass on.  What are you doing?
