30 Days of Birth Pangs - Day 10 Famines

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places" (Matthew 24:7).

Famine - we 21st Century First World people do not have a clue what famine is.  We don't know what it feels like (spiritually, emotionally, or physically), we don't know what it smells like, we have never been desperate - starving - dying.  Famine is not just food insecurity or failed crops or drought - Famine is an evil spirit, he will be released with full force in the Seal Judgments as the rider on the black horse (Revelation 6).

It is estimated that the world loses 20,000 children a day to starvation.  That statistic is mind boggling - everyday a Mother mourns, a Father falls into hopelessness, and a child's life is cut short.  Think for a moment - it is your child, your nephew, your grandson... what is the cost?

NGO's across the globe try to alleviate this one child at a time.  Organizations like Feed My Starving Children provide millions of meals per year to the world's most vulnerable.  For $0.25 a meal, we can feed a meal to a starving child.  The map above shows the percentage of the population that are under nourished.

The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Africa and the Middle East have huge populations starving to death.  To see the details of each ongoing operation, click here.  The Rapture Index Score for Famine is set right now at a 8 since most of North America and Europe have been thus far protected from the devastating effects - not so for what is to come...
