STUDY SHOWS SEVERE WATER SHORTAGES IN TWO-THIRDS OF THE WORLD
According to Arjen Hoekstra, a water management professor at the University of Twente in the Netherlands, about two-thirds of the world’s population face severe water shortages at least one month during the year. Hoekstra’s study was published Friday in Science Advances.
The article reveals that 500 million people suffer severe water shortages all year round. Among those half-a-billion people, 180 million live in India, 73 million in Pakistan, 27 million in Egypt, 20 million in Saudi Arabia, 18 million in Yemen, and 20 million in Mexico.
In Saudi Arabia and Yemen, the severe year round water shortage includes all of the people in those two nations; 80-90 percent of the populations are affected in Libya and Somalia; 50-55 percent of the populations are affected in Pakistan, Morocco, Niger and Jordan, according to the report.
The Word of God tells us that throughout ancient history, nations suffered drought when they worshiped false gods, perpetrated evil and failed to keep God’s commandments.
I think it is quite interesting to note that India has the greatest shortage of water and the people of that nation predominantly serve many gods.
All of the remaining nations are Muslim nations, with the exception of Mexico. Albeit, Islam is spreading in Mexico and the largest Muslim population is found in the Mexican Federal District. Mexico has also been overrun in many provinces by drug cartels. In fact, 23,640 people were killed by drug cartels in 2013 (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_Drug_War) and many of these victims were beheaded in recent years. Hummm, where do you suppose they came up with that idea?
Even after the Lord returns to this decimated world to establish His righteous kingdom, if the nations refuse to gather in Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles yearly, they will still suffer drought. People need to start getting the idea now that GOD is GOD and His Holy Word is true!
“And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem, shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain” Zechariah 14:16-17.
Billions of people will be killed during the impending great tribulation. First, mankind will be slain throughout one-fourth of the earth (Revelation 6:8), then another one-third of the population that remains will be killed (Revelation 9:18), as the wrath of God is poured out upon the wicked. *The saints of God will be caught up to heaven before this happens – Isaiah 26:20; 1 Corinthians 15:49-58; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
There will be plenty of room for the remnant to meet in Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles yearly to worship the Lord during the Millennial Reign of Christ.
Now, in America, with the slaughtering of over one million unborn babies every year, the Supreme Court having redefined marriage to include homosexuals, which God’s Holy Word says is an abomination (Leviticus 18:21), and with public schools teaching 10-year-olds how to, step-by-step, commit sodomy, as part of their Planned Parenthood X-rated, pornographic and perverted sex “education” classes, the US is suffering severe drought!
As wickedness abounds (Matthew 24:12), we also see perils increasing throughout the world.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
