Cascading Water Problems: Symbols of Judgment on America?

fluorideTap-water-Clean    Has anyone noticed that––with severe droughts in the West and Midwest, heavy rains in the Southeast, floods and hurricanes in the East––this nation seems to be ‘drowning’ in water problems? And that they appear to get worse each year?

In addition, parts of the country suffer everything from arsenic-poisoned drinking water, dirty polluted drinking water, expensive bottled water, battles about water between states, collapsing underground water viaducts, fracking, etc.

While some people try to harvest rain water, others beg for leadership. After touring ground-dry farms in central California, the U.S. President told Associated Press:  “We can’t think of this simply as a zero-sum game.

“It can’t just be a matter of there’s going to be less and less water so I’m going to grab more and more of a shrinking share of water. Instead what we have to do is all come together and figure out how we all are going to make sure that agricultural needs, urban needs, industrial needs, environmental and conservation concerns are all addressed.”

Alexander E.M. Hess and Thomas C. Frohlich write in: ‘7 States Running Out Of Water’: “In seven states drought conditions were so severe that each had more than half of its land area in severe drought. Severe drought is farmer-drought-conditionscharacterized by crop loss, frequent water shortages, and mandatory water use restrictions.”

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) meteorologist Brad Rippey says the current drought has become a long-running issue: “This drought has dragged on for three and a half years in some areas, particularly in North Texas.”

Hess and Frohlich add: “The United States is currently engulfed in one of the worst droughts in recent memory. More than 30% of the country experiences at least moderate drought.”

They add that California has the nation’s worst drought problem with severe drought conditions covering the entire state. That area provides a huge source of America’s food. With such dry land, 500,000 farm workers are unemployed. Clearly America’s food supplies, as well as its prices, become affected as well.

24/7 Wall Street lists percentage of drought severity each state: Texas, 56.1%, Oklahoma, 64.5%, Arizona 76.3%, Kansas 80.8%, New Mexico 86.2%, Nevada 87.0%, and California 100%.

From the time of Israel’s Exodus from Egypt, Bible historical Books repeatedly illustrate that God’s judgments upon errant nations come in different and increasing levels of intensity (i.e. Exodus 9 to 15; Leviticus 26: 15 – 46).

Daniel’s prayers of repentance offer wisdom for these days. Although he had not committed these sins himself, Daniel made Israel’s sins his own: “We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from Thy precepts and from Thy judgments:

“Neither have we hearkened unto Thy servants the prophets, which spake in Thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land . . . O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for Thine own sake, O My God (Daniel 9).” Yes, this time Christians must pray!!!
