WATCH! Food Shortage In Venezuela; The Economy in America; and the Building of Noah’s Ark, A Modern Day Prophecy?


What they Use to Feed their Dogs they are now Eating themselves in Venezuela: Prudent Preparation the Importance of Preparing the Ark- God’s Provision in the Day of Calamity

It is important to recognize the events that are happening throughout the world and how they can impact other areas of the world, even the very cities and neighborhoods that you may call home. Currently, Venezuela is experiencing an economic crisis. Food shortages have caused basic food items to be rare, and businesses are only open for a 2-day work week because of the high cost to stay open for an entire week. According to The Guardian, “Venezuela’s devastating economic crisis is now officially a state of emergency, inflation this year is projected to hit 720%, the government has put the clocks forward by half an hour to save electricity, and has called on women to save power by not using hair dryers.”We can and must learn from what other people are presently experiencing in Venezuela and throughout the world.

Everywhere you turn, there are people around us; some are hurting and some are suffering. It is important that we are mindful and compassionate to their realities. If tragedy were to occur, would we be aware of the elderly in our communities; would we be aware of those who cannot fend for themselves? This includes those in other countries as well. One man related a story of how vastly his life has changed since the economic collapse. He told The Guardian that, “when things were good,” he would often go to the butcher to purchase steaks for himself, then would also buy liver for his dog. Now the man says that liver is what he eats, and that he eats it when he can get it. The things we take for granted every day are the same things that the people of Venezuela have not seen or tasted in a very long time.

Many times, the word has been shared that “it will be the best of times and the worst of times”. Yes, we are believing for a Third Great Awakening, but, through many confirmations and encounters, God has shown that difficult times are ahead. It is simply wisdom to heed these warnings and take the time now to prepare. The simple direction and wisdom given by James Robinson is still true today: we have a choice, humility or humiliation.

When we look at what is happening in Venezuela, we have to also recognize the danger signs of what is presently happening in America. Presently, multiple nations are holding large amounts of American debt. According to CNN Money, “Saudi Arabia stockpiled $116.8 billion of U.S. Treasuries as of March, the Treasury Department announced on Monday, ending four decades of keeping the figure secret. That makes Saudi Arabia the 13th largest foreign holder of U.S. debt, though well behind the $1 trillion-plus owned by China and Japan each.” The answer will not come through those who are living for the world. The answer lies in how the Church responded to God. 2 Chronicles 7:14 reveals, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Truth of the matter is that a wise person sees danger and prepares. The question is how.

If we are aware that hard times and devastation are on the horizon, the simple items of food and water are a great start. Some may be mocked and ridiculed for this simple wisdom. But, as Jim Bakker shares, this is evident of how many responded to God, as recorded throughout the Bible. When God told Noah that a storm was coming, he built an ark, as the Lord directed. He also stored food as the Lord commanded in Genesis 6:21, “You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.” The significance of Noah rings true again when considering when the disciples asked, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”, as stated in Matthew 24:3. After responding to the disciples at length, Jesus refers to the days of Noah in Matthew 24:37, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

Pastor David Lankfordcontinues to share a message of the same note as he shares about Jesus’ continuing response to the disciples through the story of the ten virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. Five of these virgins were wise because of storing up oil for their lamps, and five were not. At the sound of the coming of the Bridegroom, the five foolish virgins realized their immediate need for oil. The foolish virgins asked the wise virgins for oil but the answer they received was no. The significance of this parable, as Pastor Lankford shares, is Jesus’ response in verse 9, ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’  The ‘buying’ and ‘selling’ brings awareness to the end times warning in Revelation 13:16-18 that speaks of a required ‘mark’ in order to buy and sell. “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”

Just a few years ago, in 2012, states like New Jersey were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. This being an area that never experienced such weather, a huge amount of people were left vulnerable and unprepared. Gas was rationed, people waited in endless lines for food, while some rowed through the streets in boats, stories were flooded, train systems were inoperable, and search and rescue teams were everywhere. In these disasters, there are always two lines: the receiving line, who need the food and help, and the ministering line, who were people prepared and have something to give away. You want to be in the line that was prepared!

John shared a prophetic dream, in which an unfathomably devastating disaster struck the center of the United States. The event had been so bad, it was a known fact that no one had survived it. Within the dream, John was awakened by someone who said, “You’re not going believe this,” informing him that the enemies of America had attacked amidst the crises, dropping bombs across the nation. This was the end of the dream. Why wouldn’t our enemies exploit us in our time of weakness? Think about it. If we aren’t prepared for this, we will be like the people left outside the ark, the five foolish virgins, the ones who take the Mark of the Beast in order to survive. If God is telling us to “build an ark,” we had better respond while we still can.

If the warnings and prophetic signs could not be loud and clear enough, consider the most recent construction that is nearing completion in Williamstown, Kentucky. Ken Hamm is set to open the Ark Encounter on July 7th, which is a full size replica of Noah’s Arkthat also serves as a museum and restaurant. God is speaking to us. 2 Peter 3:9 declares, “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” These are the moments for us to respond to God and His warnings.
