About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Rising food prices are threatening to plunge more than 100 million people on every continent into hunger

Worldwide

Global food prices surged 57 percent last month from a year earlier, according to the UN, and the World Bank warns civil disturbances may be triggered by rising food prices in 33 countries. Rice, the food staple for half the world, has more than doubled in the past year.

``Without full funding of these emergency requirements, we risk again the specter of widespread hunger, malnutrition and social unrest on an unprecedented scale,'' Ban said, adding there were ``many causes'' for the food crisis, such as flooding and drought caused by climate change, changes in consumer patterns, biofuels, market structures and trade matters.

``It's well known that trade-distorting farm subsidies from rich countries have damaged food production in developing countries,'' World Trade Organization told reporters.
