COMMENTARY

The famines in the past many times, but never on such a scale as in the past few decades. Never before was a shortage in the world many hundreds of millions of people suffering from hunger or malnutrition.

Fulfill the Biblical prophecy that said Jesus Christ. All this must be coming over again and end suffering on this earth. The Bible speaks clearly and for those who have studied and compared with the history very specifically. There is no better and credible prophecy, and there is no better starting point than Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24.7 - break out in various places famines and earthquakes.

Mark 13, 8 - in various places famines and earthquakes will break out. But they are just the beginning of birth pains.

Matthew 24.27 - The advent of the Son of Man comes like lightning - light up the sky from east to west.
