 Food shortages in the fall?

Most prophetic seers today have forecast hard times not far around the corner. The media is giving coverage to some supposedly in the know who are speaking of possible food shortages being not far away because of the Russian Ukraine invasion etc. and other factors. I've mentioned to Christian brothers and sisters and pastors over the past few years if there would come a day, maybe soon, when we as Christians would need to stock up with food because of bad years coming. Almst to a man they replied with, "It's not time, I wouldn't worry about that. The Lord will let us know when it's time." Is it time to employ the wisdom of Joseph and start preparing. I'm not trying to light a fire or broadcast gloom and doom, but wondering what other folks may be sensing. Wisdom is justified when her children use it correctly. What is wise right now?

 Re: Food shortages in the fall?

Good points David
I'm not a "prophetic seer" but I can also clearly see difficult times ahead of us with food shortages and many other problems.
What is wise right now ?
I think it is two fold. We all know the scriptures: "seek ye first the Kingdom of God..."
But on the other hand when we hear on the news that a tornado is approaching then I think it wise to take it seriously and make some wise decisions and some preparations.

Everyone's situation and circumstances are different, so there is not a one size fits all answer.
But I would suggest it is important to have the basics for several days.
In an emergency it can get very chaotic. So it is important that you can stay calm and provide for your family and those in real need.
If you are stocking up, only tell your closest friends, or else...some might come and steal it.

So I think we should first seek the Kingdom of God... and still be wise and make some preparations

"Most prophetic seers today"...are no more than lying prophets who speak of visions of their own heads and tell dreams of their own imaginations.

You don't need to be anything more than a christian who watches and prays.

As far as a food shortage, I think it may be likely in some degree. But I know this, there's definitely a famine. A famine of The Word of God.


"What is wise right now?"...is a simple heeding of the little children's song,

 Re:

Hoarding food etc seems to be unChristian unless you plan on advertising your stash to your neighbors.

 Re:

Wise Christian foresight and possible stocking = unChristian hoarding. Can you elaborate a bit?

 Re:

Not so well. But I guess Joseph got the memo in his day. 👌
