Food prices hit highs as oil rises

WORLD food prices have hit new records and oil price spikes could push them even higher, the UN food agency warned as unrest in the Middle East and North Africa hits markets.

The Food Price Index, which monitors average monthly price changes for a variety of key staples, rose to 236 points in February from 231 points in January, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said.

It was the highest level since FAO began monitoring prices in 1990.

“Unexpected oil price spikes could further exacerbate an already precarious situation in food markets,” David Hallam, director of the Rome-based FAO’s trade and market division, said.

“This adds even more uncertainty concerning the price outlook just as plantings for crops in some of the major growing regions are about to start.”

Crude prices pushed higher Thursday amid fighting in oil-rich Libya. New York’s main contract, light sweet crude oil for April delivery, rose to $102.56 and Brent North Sea crude for April was up at $116.65.

“Persistent uncertainty in the region continues to support fears of contagion,” British bank Barclays Capital said in a report.

“Lost output from countries like Libya and the increasing likelihood of a pushback in foreign investment is set to support longer-term prices,” it said.

The International Energy Agency said oil exports from Libya had been cut by between 850,000 and one million barrels per day, out of a total of 1.6 million barrels sent mostly to European buyers before the uprising.

Satan wants his empire to flourish and be like Yahweh’s spirit realm and the rest of creation in the expanse, but the way he leads, and the factions within his family, it cannot be achieved. Everything you have read or seen about Satan and his demons in this world, it is all fictitious.

Even so, Satan does have factions within his spiritual family of follower. They too cause problems for him and mankind, but, Satan’s goal is to resemble Yahweh in all things, including a realm that is run by laws. The United States is what Satan envisioned for the entire world. He hates to let go and give up that vision.

But Yahweh says this country cannot stand for much longer. It is yet another stripping of Satan’s valuables that he loves and wants to continue to hold as a prized possession. The USA is like his first born Son. He spent much time in bringing it to life. It followed his own rebellion from a Royal Crown. Not wanting to pay his taxes to Mother Israel.

The USA wanting out from under England’s tax. Satan inspiring his original position as a bringer of light to mankind to serve as its governor and to enlighten under Yahweh’s Way, before he went off course and thereby went sour.

But still, he held on to that vision though twisted, and the statue of Liberty represents his own liberty from Yahweh’s Royal Crown. And with the knowledge he took with him from the heavens, he passed the power he passed on to mankind. Everything mankind has achieved, it can be traced back to the heavens, in bith the spirit realm and the visible realm, because in truth, they are the same. They are interchangeable with one another. You are robbed of the ability to go in and out of both realms, just as Christ was able to do after his reanimation.

That is the TRUTH. Yahweh offers much through Christ, but Satan is only offering a cheap copy of the other side that lack the benefit package that comes with Christ’s Rule.
