As we left off on the following blog we got to the part of Matthew 24:7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
What is famines-An acute insufficiency- #2 A severe shortage of food (as through crop failure) resulting in violent hunger and starvation and death.
What is pestilences-Any epidemic disease with a high death rate.
And we all know what an earthquake-Shaking and vibration at the surface of the earth resulting from underground movement along a fault plane or from volcanic activity.
We have for years heard of famine in the world and yes everyday we hear more and more of third world countries where thousands if not millions die everyday from starvation. But there is one thing we can hold on to, and that is again I say that if Jesus said it, it will be. The starvation that is in the world now is only minute compared to what else is going on now. I do know that a lot of the food and supplies that is sent to the third world countries doesn't all get to the people, only about 13 % of it reaches the people who need it and the Government takes control of the rest, look it up. Then we have the pestilence part of the scriptures, again we have to at this time look once again to the third world countries, they do not have the medical staff or supplies even medicines to fight outbreaks, and once again if they did, the Government would take control of most of that also.
But what about back here at home? Let us remember what Jesus said will come to pass will come to pass. What about what has been done. Monsanto has, and continues, to buy up most of the world's seed supply, and how they are genetically altering the seeds with things such as antibiotics and different things and our own federal government is doing nothing about it because of the one thing everyone wants more of and what is that? The almighty dollar. We all know money talks and BS walks. Has no one payed any attention to all the salmonella and ecoli out breaks keep getting worse and the food and drug administration seems to show little effort to fight it but most of the times it is swept under the rug. Then we have Aids all over the world, Vaginal herpes that there is no cure for. We are in for more, worse then these. What if a nuclear war was to break out? What if the terrorist did have hidden mustard gases, or if there is any other hidden weapon of mass destruction. These are just a few of the variables and scenarios we can put forth as examples of pestilences. Friend if there is to be a nuclear war, do we really realize the damage it will do? Your skin will literally fall from the bones.
And then there are the earthquakes we haven't even mentioned as of yet. I am use to hearing about earthquakes in California, the western seaboard, overseas, the ones that have just hit recently in ITALY. But it has really caught my attention in the last five to six years how earthquakes have been hitting in the central parts of the United States, its really troublesome, how close to home. Here in Oklahoma it seems we are beginning to hear about more earthquakes hitting here than ever before. But let us remember once again if Jesus said it, it will be. The things that Jesus and the prophets and apostles spoke and wrote about we are not going to be able to run or hide from. What will be will be and we can't buy our way out of it.
There is another part of the scriptures from the first page that we haven't explained , but it is to be part of another blog that I will begin writing soon. And that is that, He shall come as a thief. That is a blog all by itself. Friends, we are living closer to the second coming of Jesus Christ than we ever have. We will begin to see things starting to happen more and more each day, not counting what has already happened, but is going to happen as for myself I really don't know what's stopping what's going to happen, but then again I'M not GOD and Jesus doesn't even know the day, but I will say - Just any day now.
Thanks again jesseb's
Shalom and Peace to Israel
