LAST DAYS FAMINE/DROUGHT

“And there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in various places. Matthew 24:7

Are we seeing this end times scripture being fulfilled in our time?

Approximately 106 000 farm animals have perished so far due to drought in Chile, reports confirmed on October 5, 2019.

This year’s dry spell is the country’s worst in six decades, leaving crops destroyed and dead animals in the field. Mostly goats, cattle, and sheep died due to a lack of water and fodder and about 37 000 family farms need aid in central Chile according to the agriculture ministry. Petorca locals pointed out that the long-term issue is the mismanagement of water sources.

Drought in Africa leaves 45 million in need across 14 countries

Failed rains across eastern Africa, southern Africa, and the Horn of Africa are seeing another dire season for farmers, increasing food prices and driving up the aid needs of tens of millions of already vulnerable people across the three regions.

All told, more than 45 million people will struggle to find enough food across 14 countries in 2019, many feeling the compounded effects of years of drought. It’s the second time in three years that an El Niño event has disrupted weather patterns.

A historic drought in India is so severe that it’s now visible from space

A historic drought in Chennai, the sixth-largest city in India, is so severe that it’s now visible from space. The city’s 4.6 million citizens are rationing every drop of water, restaurants are closing early and companies are scaling back their operations as Chennai tries to survive a heat wave with 99 per cent less water than it had at the same time last year. The state government is shipping in water on trucks, but those trucks can’t replace the now dried-up lakes that once fed the city.

Heat, hardship and horrible harvests: Europe’s drought explained

Europe’s searing temperatures have this summer transformed normally lush pastures to a dusty brown in a matter of weeks. The drought, especially in northern and central parts of the continent, has had a devastating impact on crops.

Heatwaves, record temperatures and disastrous precipitation in the first part of the summer have caused the drought, according to the World Meteorological Organization. April and May were the warmest on record when it comes to average temperatures across Europe, it’s been claimed.

Dead things everywhere: is Australia facing the summer from hell?

Valley water storages in the Macquarie are sitting at 11%. In the Namoi, in north-west NSW where water shortages have been acute, they’re at 1.5%. The Border Rivers, in the region between the NSW and Queensland border, are at 6%. In Sydney, dam storages have dropped below 50% for the first time in more than a decade. It’s one part of the climate crisis playing out across much of the country. A different year, similar story. Most places are drier than usual, warmer than usual.

NSW is experiencing one of the most severe droughts on record, with the Central West, Far West and North West regions the worst affected to date.

PROPHESIED END TIMES FAMINES AND TROUBLES

The disciples asked Jesus about the “last days”. “Tell us when will these things be? And what will be the sign when all of these things will be fulfilled. And Jesus answering them gave many signs but one was:

And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles . These are the beginnings of sorrows.” Luke 13:8

No End in Sight for Drought Woes  – The Australian Tribune 08/2018

Wheat growers across northern NSW and southern Queensland are facing their fourth year without a crop.

And with no decent rain on the horizon, not knowing when the nightmare will end is one of the most distressing things, grain grower John Eastburn says.

For things to turn around they need three or four falls of 100 mm over several months, and even if that came they couldn’t seed until next March and face the prospect of no income until December 2019.

Even if the rain comes they can still see there is no income — there is a lot of outgoing but no incoming until the end of next year which is probably the most distressing part,’ Mr Eastburn told reporters in Canberra on Monday.

Derek Schoen, who has a property at Corowa, says farmers aren’t at the end of the drought, they’re in the middle, with no end in sight. ‘One of the biggest problems with the drought is it sneaks up on you and then you’re on this treadmill that you can’t get off,’ he said.

The Turnbull government has announced a new $190 million package of household assistance, to help property owners with day to day bills like vehicle registration and school fees.

Worst flooding damage in our state’s history: Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, R-Neb

According to Agriculture Secretary Sunny Purdue, there “may be as many as a million calves lost in Nebraska” due to the catastrophic flooding that has hit the state. This is not a rumour, this is not an exaggeration, and this is not based on any sort of speculation. This number comes to us directly from the top agriculture official in the entire country, and it means that the economic toll from the recent floods is far greater than most of us had anticipated. You can watch Purdue make this quote on Fox Business right here, and it is important to remember that this number is just for one state. It is hard to imagine what the final numbers will look like when the livestock losses for all of the states affected by the flooding are tallied up. This is already the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history, and the National Weather Service is telling us that there will be more catastrophic flooding throughout the middle portion of the nation for the next two months.

 

 

“THERE WILL BE FAMINES, PESTILENCES, AND EARTHQUAKES IN VARIOUS PLACES”

Jesus answer to his disciples question, as to what would be the signs of his Second Coming to earth, included the quote above in Matthew 24:7.

Below, I have listed just a few of the current so called natural disasters that are swamping this planet like never before in their frequency and intensity. They will bring either worship and awe, or fear and dread.

“Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.” Psalm 34:9

Church are you prepared for His Second Coming, are you listening to God, what is He calling you to do now? One thing is for certain, He is calling us to fulfil the great commission, to make disciples.
