Spain and Greece are but harbingers of things to come. As bad as it is in these nations now, bible prophecy warns that it will get worse throughout the world. During the Tribulation, food prices will rise dramatically costing a days wages for a days worth of food, (Revelation 6:6), while at the same time, the value of precious metals will tumble making them worthless, (Ezekiel 7:19).
It is our opinion that these future terrible days are not long into the future, (perhaps just around the corner). Now is the time to place your faith in Christ Jesus who has promised to keep those who know him from the coming time of God's judgement.
Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. Revelation NIV
Greece on Brink of Total Failure
leads food raids for the people
In the small Spanish town of
Marinaleda, located in the southern region of
Andalusía, Mayor Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo has an answer for the country’s
economic crisis and the hunger that comes with it: He organized and led the
town’s residents to raid supermarkets to get the food necessary to survive. Seven
people have been arrested in two raids in which trade unionists loaded shopping
carts full of food and left without paying, with the support of the townspeople
cheering them on and the mayor watching with approval.
Since 2007, poverty in
Spain has risen 15 percent, while
unemployment hovers around 25 percent and tens of thousands have lost their
homes to bank foreclosures. The conservative national government has only made
matters worse, by introducing austerity measures that have worsened the
workers’ lives, while bailing out the bankers and capitalists who caused the
crisis in the first place.
