Drought In 14 States
Much of the southern heartland of America is experiencing the worst drought in recorded history, such as in Texas. Cattle are dying. Crops are dying. Much like we have seen very recently in Australia, Brazil and Russia.
In the thick of the heat wave is Oklahoma where Gov. Mary Fallin asked Oklahomans to pray for rain this Sunday.
"The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain," Fallin said in a news release on Thursday.
Earlier this year Texas Gov. Rick Perry asked Texans to pray for rain because of the drought there.
As of July 12, about 72 percent of Texas and 43 percent of Oklahoma are experiencing the worst possible drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.
The times we are now living in are not normal times. A quick review of the recent weather patterns will verify this. There are more and more droughts, that are lasting longer over large portions of the farmland all over the world. America is no exception.
God's Holy Word tell us very explicitly why a drought, and other catastrophic events comes upon the land involved. The people of the country or nation or area undergoing the catastrophic event, have turned their back upon the God of the Bible, the God who sends the rain and blesses the people and the land with the rain needed to grow the crops that bring us food to survive on the earth.
So it's going to take much more than just praying to a "greater power". There is only one God who can send rain. He is the God of all creation, Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
"If I (God) shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
Americans and politicians need to wake up fast and understand that we are all dependand upon the God of the Bible, and need his help constantly to survive. The bottom line is that sin in America by corrupt politicians and every person who has not repented of sin who lives in America has brought the present drought in America upon the land by kicking God out of America and out of their life. They have in fact told God you are not needed or wanted here. The entire nation of America needs to repent of its sin and turn back to the God of the Bible.
Nevermind Obama. He nor the government can fix the drought problem, because they are a major part of the problem. The only One who can fix the present drought problem in America is Almighty God when politicians and Americans do what the God of the Bible requires of them; humble yourself before Him, pray and seek His face, and turn from your wicked ways before Him.
I am one who happens to believe that God has sent this present evil corrupt American government and Obama to destroy the evil within America, which will eventually destroy America if the political leaders and citizens in America do not wake up and obey what God has told them to do to save America. And I don't see that happening. What I see is an evil enemy of America destroying the evil in America. The Bible tells us all through the Old Testament of how God sent Israel's evil enemies to bring the nation of Israel back to Him. Such is happening today in America.
When one forgets God, and throws Him out of the land, the blessings will stop flowing through Him, including the rain that is badly needed.
Some may ask what does it mean to "humble" yourself before God, pray and seek his face, and turn from your wicked ways? Very simple; you must repent of your sin, recognize Jesus Christ, the forgiver of sins and the God of the Bible, creator of all things in the the universe and upon the earth, and He will do as He has promised in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14. There is no other way.
I pray that the Governor of Oklahoma repents of her use of a "greater power" and recognizes who God really is. There is only one God and He has a name. A real leader will not deny the true God and call Him a "greater power." There are many false gods that people worship and pray to in America, which is considered their "greater power"; these false gods are considered idols in the God of the Bible's eyes and He will not answer a prayer prayed to any other false god.
The Bible tells us that Jesus, God's only begotton Son, was sent by God, became a man without sin to forgive and save us from our sins and to give us a link with God Himself. Jesus, who was God's perfect sacrifice for our sins, lived a perfect man. He was crucified to deal with the sin problem of the human race and rose from the dead on the third day just as the Scriptures foretold.
To return to God, simply put means politicians and Americans must do what the Bible commands. It is Jesus Christ the politicians and Americans must humble themselves before if they want the rain to fall.
In essence, America's problem with no rain is first a spiritual problem Jesus himself told us in Matthew 4:4 that man can not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.
I believe it is too late for America as America is on the deep decline in every way imagineable, starting with corrupt American politicians and a corrupt church, with false teachers infecting the church with idolatry and feel good theologies that these false teachers pass off as "Christian" everywhere and has been for a long time. The apostacy is already here. Sin and rebellion against God's Word is rampant everywhere in American life. But you can save your soul by repenting of your sins, and seeking the forgiveness of the Lord Jesus Christ and follow only Him, by letting His Word and His Holy Spirit guide you before He returns as we see the signs of His coming draw closer and closer.
