Global food security is stretched to the breaking point. Russia’s fires and Pakistan’s floods are making a bad situation worse.
Food shortages resulting from severe crop losses will occur more frequently and take longer to recover from as more people become vulnerable to extreme weather events like the droughts and flooding we see today in Russia and Pakistan.
The World Bank predicts that developing countries will require USD 75 billion to USD 100 billion a year for the next 40 years to adapt to the effects of climate change on agricultural productivity, infrastructure, and disease.
This year, we may be able to limit the damage to a single supply shock in Russia and Eastern Europe.
But even in the best of times, our global food system is stretched to the breaking point by the ever-present challenges of population growth, increased demand from changing diets, higher energy costs, and more extreme weather.
Experts at the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization estimate global agricultural productivity must double by 2050 to keep pace with increased demand. Unless we take immediate action, we are destined to race from food crisis to food crisis for generations to come, with grim consequences for the world’s poor and our own national security.

What the World face today, is called tribulation. The Bible explains that it will get worse, before the King of Kings Jesus returns to Earth. The final years before the Messiah comes with full power in the clouds of Heaven, is called the Great Tribulation.
Why do a good and loving God allow his creation to be exposed to the Great Tribulation?
Let me assure you that what you are going to face on Earth, will be like a holiday compared to the eternal pain and agony your soul are going to face in the fire of Hell.
The Great Tribulation is the start of God’s judgment. You do still have a chance to repent, and surrender to Jesus and be saved from the everlasting fire. Turn away from idols, selfishness and false religions.
