Over six million children will die from hunger or malnutrition this year

A United Nations agency, the Food and Agricultural Organization has warned that nearly six million children will die from hunger or malnutrition this year. The report issued by FAO estimates that 852 million people were undernourished during the time between 2000 and 2002. And in Subsaharan Africa, the number of malnourished people has risen to 203 million people.

This report on world hunger states that most of the hungry would survive if they had proper nourishment and that many deaths result from treatable diseases, but hunger and malnutrition have hindered that needed treatment.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The shocking report that six million children in our world this year will die of hunger is a stark reminder of the judgment of starvation that will come upon the earth in the future time of judgment the seven year Tribulation Period and this according to Bible prophecy.

At the World Food Summit in 1996, world leaders announced a plan to cut in half the number of hungry people in our world by 2015. The Food and Agriculture Organization, a United Nations Agency, says that the goal to cut starvation in half is more than likely to be broken. The evidence is so vivid. Six million children will die this year alone of hunger, and the numbers are increasing, not decreasing. Reducing hunger should be, but it is not the driving force for progress and hope, according to FAO.

This report is a stark reminder of the terrible time of judgment spoken of in Bible prophecy when starvation will be ramped in our world. Jesus Christ spoke of famine in His Olivet Discourse, Matthew 24:7, as one of the judgments upon the earth during the Tribulation Period. John, writing in the book of Revelation 6:5-6, spoke of the third judgment to be released at the beginning of the Tribulation Period, that judgment starvation.

This United nations report that six million children will die this year of hunger is a lead up to the time of judgment to come upon the earth. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
