Quote: “Right now the state has only about one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing. California has no contingency plan for a persistent drought like this one (let alone a 20-plus-year mega-drought), except, apparently, staying in emergency mode and praying for rain.”
As drought and heat consume the snow waters, So the grave consumes those who have sinned.
lest YHVH’s (the Lord’s) anger be aroused against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and you perish quickly from the good land which YHVH (the Lord) is giving you.
YHVH (The Lord) will change the rain of your land to powder and dust; from the heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed.
Jeremiah 14:1-3 (NKJV)
14 The word of YHVH (the Lord) that came to Jeremiah concerning the droughts.
2 “Judah mourns, And her gates languish; They mourn for the land, And the cry of Jerusalem has gone up.
3 Their nobles have sent their lads for water; They went to the cisterns and found no water.
They returned with their vessels empty; They were ashamed and confounded And covered their heads.
Haggai 1:9-11 (NKJV)
9 “You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says YHVH (the Lord) of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house. 10 Therefore the heavens above you withhold the dew, and the earth withholds its fruit. 11 For I called for a drought on the land and the mountains, on the grain and the new wine and the oil, on whatever the ground brings forth, on men and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands.”
Revelation 11:3-6 (NKJV)
3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”
4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth. 5 And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. 6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.
