Why Our Agricultural Empire Will Fall With You Starving To Death Within It.
With the modern technology that our creator has allowed us to gain from the prophesied increase of knowledge in Daniel 12:4 that came from only Him who
“. . .changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding. Daniel 2:21
Or in just plain English for all to understand meaning God and creator who has always been in control because the once greatest kingdom of man was ruled by king Nebuchadnezzar who was a ruthless killer; and it was God who gave him his kingdom. Read Daniel 4:25 for a piece of strong meat that says
“. . . till thou know that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomever He will.
Bush followed by Clinton followed by Bush followed by Obama are all children of the devil and God gave them the kingdom of America just as He has given all world leaders their positions of greatness. . . .and those words fit with spiritual to spiritual for the few in 1 Corinthians 2:13 because the many in 1 Corinthians 2:14 will see only foolishness in them.
We have gained ways of seeing all things as they are if we who believe in God and Jesus Christ maintain our victory over the flesh that wants you to know nothing because through you’re ignorance will become one of only foolish wisdom which is spoken of in 1 Corinthians 1:18-31
If we look only to God and just believe His every word while always praying for a clear understanding because we know that we can do nothing without Him to direct our paths of life---- we will see things as written and never as taught by man; because if you do that you will have placed yourself within the hands of God; and God will place you in the beginning of sorrows that is very close to coming upon you, your children, all who you know and love along with the whole world that has no preparation whatsoever spiritually, mentally of physically.
So now just read below about the world food shortages that is getting read to multiply; and then wars breaking out with nation against nation and the little food available going to the troops at war as famines, pestilence and earthquakes are all the beginning of sorrows worldwide. . .but with even greater effects on a once great nation that was used to having everything that turned into nothing but death and sorrows riddled with crime, terrorism and no law in a financially crushed society with toddlers crying to their moms—where is the food and where is the water as they are dieing.
Therefore you need to see now what is just ahead so that you can become spiritually minded through God and not the god of this world who has already deceived the whole world and wants to keep them all to himself for the joy in the sufferings that are coming upon them all.
Please read what’s written below while never putting yourself above or out of reach from what was prophesied to come upon us all; and I will be in it just as you will be, but in a different way because of my faith that I want you all to have.
What I see is Elijah who was hungry in famine, the woman, her son and the meal in the barrel that was near wasted that spelled death for the woman and her son. . . .read 1 Kings 17:1-16 for a lesson with needed education-----then think about the death of loved ones to come while gaining the faith to bring them back to life in 17-24 of the same chapter----if you take the words as a spiritual lesson.
In the midst of an obesity epidemic, surrounded by super-sized meals, and backed by half a century of agricultural overabundance, it’s hard to imagine the possibility of a food shortage. But while the US continues to overindulge, the rest of the world is facing a global food crisis. The United Nations (UN) Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is organizing a special meeting this month to tackle the current instability of the global food market and the rising wheat prices that recently caused riots in some countries (and even led to protesters’ deaths in Mozambique).
Reading about this reminded me of an interesting interview I saw with one of the authors of the book Empires of Food, Evan Fraser. The book shows how our food system is repeating the history of doomed civilizations by tracing the rise and fall of past empires. The Romans, Mesopotamians, and medieval Europeans, for example, all had agricultural systems that, much like ours, were linked to complex technology and intricate trade networks. And each of these societies eventually failed because they didn’t account for growing population, soil erosion, and weather changes.
In the interview, Fraser stated that his biggest concern is climate change. Most empires expand in times of good weather, then fail when the weather goes bad. The Romans specialized in wheat until around 300 AD when the weather dropped and the empire collapsed. The same thing happened in medieval Europe. In the late 14th century, the warm period ended and there were huge famines.
In our case, we’re not facing cooling, but warming is just as problematic for agriculture. The current food crisis was triggered by a persistent drought in Russia, a major producer of wheat. Because of the low yield, Russia has put a ban on exporting wheat, causing wheat prices to skyrocket. According the the UN, “Wheat prices experienced their biggest monthly rise in almost a year in August, according to the FAO’s Food Price Index, climbing by 5 per cent following persistent drought in Russia and that country’s subsequent restriction on sales.”
Interestingly, one of the first signs that things were about to go wrong in both the medieval period and the Roman period was that food prices started to rise. Demand was going up, but yields stagnated. We have a strong parallel with that today. Between 2006 and 2008, we had a threefold rise in the price of food. The price of wheat has risen faster in the last six months than at any time in the last 32 years. From 1950 to 2000, the price of food decreased every year, but since 2000, it’s been increasing. Fraser says, “Our system looks a lot like Rome in the year 250.”
And, unfortunately, all of the safeguards we’ve come up with to combat crop failure are fossil-fuel intensive. Chemical fertilizers, irrigation systems, dams, and transportation all take energy to produce. With a rise in oil prices (which is inevitable since oil is a finite resource), these solutions will become increasingly more expensive.
Furthermore, instead of rotating our crops, we’ve started growing the same crop over and over again on the same piece of land. This very quickly strips the soil of its nutrients. (This is why crop rotation is important.) This means that our system is already very brittle and fragile, and climate change will only weaken an already weak system.
The Mesopotamians, just like other empires, grew into an extremely developed culture because their farmers produced excess food, stored it, transported it and exchanged it in the urban marketplace. They developed cities by creating irrigation canals, which allowed them to have high yields. And they made the same mistakes that we are making today: They relied heavily on food produced during good weather and they overspecialized their farms, growing only one type of crop on each field, instead of rotating them.
The soil became infertile from the monocultures and salinized as the irrigation canals left behind a deposit of salt when the water evaporated. During a sudden hot, dry spell, the Mesopotamians irrigated the soil even more heavily. This created a short-term yield boost, but in the long term, it was unsustainable. (The drop in crop yields led to a drop in the economy, which led to a drop in tax revenues, which led to a weakened military, which led to an overthrow.)
The modern parallel with this is our usage of chemical fertilizers. It has allowed us to boost our yield temporarily, but the underlying problem of soil erosion hasn’t been fixed.
Some argue that technology, like chemical fertilizers and genetically modified crops, have helped increase our crop yield and protect us against famine. But, Fraser explains that “highly productive varieties” actually require more water, so now even a small drought can create an extreme food shortage.
In the US, with an overabundance of food at very cheap prices, food has become a luxurious sensory experience instead of a necessity. “In order for us to produce food locally, or use fewer fertilizers, or pay better wages, we need people to be more interested in what they’re eating and where it’s coming from. We need them to be invested in food without trivializing it,” says Fraser.
No matter what you read from man, what you need to know has never been written to the full because they are of a deceived world. What you need to see is the end coming with no way of changing anything that was prophesied because it has already happened.
In other words spiritually speaking, only few will hear and act because what’s prophesied is “. . . wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13-14
Remember 1 John and how God sees the many without love? Remember the new commandment of love in John 13:34? Remember Revelation 22:14 for no blessings to the tree of life to those who do not do all God’s commandments? Remember how he that climbeth up some other way is a thief and a robber in John 10? Because to climb with love in words but not in heart is trying to steal a salvation you are not worthy of.
"And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him. Hebrews 5:9
My job is a workman for God to warn those with ears to hear.
