Ours is the First Generation to be Able to Chart and Graph the Fulfillment of Prophecy

For some two thousand years, generation after generation of Christians have waited for the return of Christ.  These generations have faithfully studied the Scriptures, noted the way-marks outlined in prophecy, and watched for the return of Christ – just as He instructed (Mark 13:32-37). Many among these generations have lived in the expectation that they would see […]

Tipping Point for Global Food Supply?

Regular readers will know that I bang on quite a bit about food supply and food prices, and for good reason:  Increases in food prices rapidly bring down weak societies, which leads in turn to war (or internal conflicts), sickness, forced migration, etc.  Global food prices are our best single indicator of the relative peace, […]

When Will All The Fish Be Gone?

This is the third article in a series examining specific resource depletion and calculating – roughly – when the depletion of specific resources will result in societal conflict.   In the previous two blog posts we examined the timeline for the depletion of water (aquifers) and phosphorous rock.  This post looks at the depletion of […]

When Will the Water Run Out?

This is the first in a series of articles dealing with resource constraints.  While I covered these issues in my book, Planet In Distress, I did not try to place the depletion of various resources on a timeline.  This I will attempt to do now, with the caveat that data on some issues and areas […]

Past the Tipping Point: Haiti and Syria

The link between sin, environmental degradation, and societal disruption that fulfills prophecy is just becoming apparent.  As with almost any emerging trend or event, it has to be pointed out and explained before it is apparent but, after that, it is relatively easy to detect.  It is important to be able to see the connection between sin […]

Syria As Exhibit “A”

It was only about a year ago that, when giving lectures, I had to explain carefully and in detail how resource shortages (and especially food shortages) could lead to societal instability and that this instability could lead to conflict, potentially snow-balling conflict that could affect a wide region.  The people I was speaking to (Americans) […]
