The Hunger Games – Part II

Matthew 24:7

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”

Revelation 6:6

New International Version (NIV)

6 Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two poundsof wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds[ of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”

The last time a post appeared here about “The Hunger Games” it was about the movie.  This time it is about reality.

Almost 2 years ago, a post appeared here with the title “A BILLION PEOPLE GO HUNGRY IN 2010.”

That post has been in the top ten posts here almost every week after it was published.  And I have been watching the economic situation in our country and the world ever since.  If you don’t think that we are soon heading for an economic collapse of unknown and possibly unprecedented proportions, then we disagree.

Ok..I only took one economic course in college.  But I have watched “brilliant economists” argue back a forth the past few years about what will “fix” our problems. This article tells us what the U.S. government is doing as a solution.

I think this article pegs it.  It doesn’t say that we need a savior, it only says that what we are doing is a huge mistake.

The sentence that Jesus says after the one about the earthquakes and famines is:

8 “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”

I believe we are in the birth pang period of time that Jesus talked about.  And I am not afraid because the Bible says that nothing can separate me from God’s love.

We can prepare all we want in earthly ways: storing water and food, etc., etc.  The real question is: “Are we ready spiritually?”

Jesus said that we are to watch.  I am watching and I hope you are, too.  Our time tables may be different, but we are to be prepared to meet the Bridegroom regardless.

Trust in God.  Ask Him for wisdom in these strange days we live in.

    it is hard to get through a night on an stomach that has not eaten in days let alone to make it through a day. Our country (farmlands that feed us)is in the midst of yet another drought, gee i wonder why?

    Our beloved nation is under God’s hammer!
