Undernourishment

Hunger is real.

Physical & Spiritual starvationexists.

Bible prophesied about food shortages: part of a composite sign/feature foretelling last days.

“There will be food shortages.”​—MARK 13:8.

Physical/Spiritual Food Security?…insecurity for many millions:(

The annual “State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World” is published by a consortium of United Nation’s agencies including the Food and Agriculture Organization, UNICEF and the World Food Program.

The report finds that 821 million people were undernourished last year. Some failed to get enough nutrients to maintain a normal active life; others went for days without any food. That’s 6 million more undernourished people than in 2016 — and part of an upward trend that started in 2014, when the report put the total at 783.7 million.

Severe food insecurity, defined as a family running out of food and going at least a day without eating, was up in every region of the world last year except for North America and Europe.

example: Haiti & obesity

In Haiti more than 20 percent of adults are categorized as obese and more than 20 percent of children under 5 are categorized as stunted. In Indonesia more than 10 percent of kids suffer from wasting while another 10 percent are overweight.

“Food insecurity contributes to overweight and obesity, as well as undernutrition,” the report notes. “The higher cost of nutritious foods, the stress of living with food insecurity, and physiological adaptations to food restriction help explain why food-insecure families may have a higher risk of … obesity.”

“The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.” (1 John 5:19)

Suffering?? Of course You are and of course i am…in different ways most likely or in similarly ways …as well, nah! as awful.

Fellow-Sufferer…Please find the following informative and comforting…🙂

That “wicked one” is Satan the Devil, a powerful spirit creature who was originally an angel of God but “did not stand fast in the truth.” (John 8:44) Other spirit creatures joined Satan and rebelled against God in order to pursue selfish desires, thus making themselves demons. (Genesis 6:1-5) Ever since their rebellion, Satan and his demons have exerted a powerful and cruel influence over this world’s affairs. This has been particularly so in our time. Now, the Devil has great anger and “is misleading the entire inhabited earth,” which has resulted in “woe for the earth.” (Revelation 12:9, 12) Indeed, Satan is a brutal dictator. He gets perverse satisfaction from human suffering. It is Satan​—not God—​who causes people to suffer.

CONSIDER: Only a heartless, diabolical evildoer would cause innocent people to suffer. By contrast, the Bible says: “God is love.” (1 John 4:8) In harmony with his loving personality, “it is unthinkable for the true God to act wickedly, for the Almighty to do wrong!”​—Job 34:10.

However, you may naturally wonder, ‘How long will Almighty God permit Satan to continue his heinous rule?’ As we have seen, God abhors wickedness and our suffering causes him great pain. Furthermore, his Word urges: “Throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)

It’s especially tough/(seemingly unbearable)–i’ve found–when a loved one suffers and efforts to help seem useless.  I’ve found the following comforting and HOPE You do:)

When you or someone close to you is suffering, it is easy to conclude that God is slow to act, that he should have intervened by now. Yet, the Bible assures us: “Jehovah is not slow concerning his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire anyone to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance.”​—2 Peter 3:9.

WHEN WILL GOD ACT?

Very soon! Jesus revealed that a particular generation would witness a unique combination of conditions that would mark the last days of a “system of things.” (Matthew 24:3-42) The fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy in our day indicates that God’s intervention in human affairs is imminent. 

But how will God bring an end to all suffering? When Jesus was on the earth, he demonstrated God’s power to alleviate mankind’s suffering. Consider some examples of this.

Natural Disasters: While Jesus and his apostles were sailing on the Sea of Galilee, a violent windstorm threatened to sink their boat. But Jesus showed that he and his Father can control the natural elements. (Colossians 1:15, 16) Jesus simply said: “Hush! Be quiet!” The result? “The wind abated, and a great calm set in.”​—Mark 4:35-39.

Sickness: Jesus was well-known for his ability to heal the blind and the lame, as well as those suffering from epilepsy, leprosy, or any other sort of infirmity. “He cured all who were suffering.”​—Matthew 4:23, 24;8:16; 11:2-5.

Food Shortages: Jesus used powers granted to him by his Father to multiply meager food supplies. It is recorded that twice during his ministry, he fed thousands.​—Matthew 14:14-21; 15:32-38.

Death: That Jehovah has the power to undo death is clearly shown by the three resurrections Jesus is recorded to have performed. One of those whom he brought back to life had been dead for four days.​—Mark 5:35-42; Luke 7:11-16; John 11:3-44. [God Will Soon End All Suffering W no. 3 2018]
