Crops Destroyed by a Series Of Historic Natural Disasters

USA - While the mainstream media focuses on the upcoming election, COVID-19 and the endless protests going on in our major cities, another great tragedy is unfolding all across the middle of the country. A nightmarish drought, horrific flooding along the Mississippi River and a giant “derecho” that just hit the farm belt have combined to make this one of the toughest years for farmers ever. And this comes at a particularly bad time, because the stress that the COVID-19 pandemic has put on food distribution systems has already created periodic shortages of certain items around the nation. We definitely could have used an uneventful growing season this year, and unfortunately we didn’t get it.

On Monday, an absolutely massive “derecho” roared through the Midwest. According to USA Today, the storm had winds of up to 112 miles per hour… Needless to say, this very unusual storm caused immense devastation. According to Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, approximately 10 million acres of crops were destroyed in Iowa alone… I can’t remember a storm ever causing this much damage in the middle of the summer. If about 10 million acres were flattened just in Iowa, how many more acres did this storm destroy in Nebraska, Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois?

Further south, many farmers along the southern Mississippi Delta have already had their growing seasons wiped out by historic flooding for the second year in a row… The southern Mississippi Delta is home to some of the most fertile farmland in the United States. But not a single crop of soybeans, cotton, corn, or rice has been planted at many farms in the region — one of the poorest in the country. This wasn’t supposed to happen.

The flooding of 2019 was a complete and utter nightmare, and this was the year when the recovery was supposed to begin. But instead, “hundreds of thousands of acres” are currently entirely buried by water…

Drought conditions throughout the country are reaching their worst levels in almost a decade. The worst-hit section of the country, with the highest levels of drought, are in cattle country: West Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Kansas. That’s led to really damaged, dry topsoil and grazing land, which could force ranchers to invest in other feeding options for livestock.

Drought – the End Time Curse

“And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass...” (Leviticus 26:19)

But as we search the scriptures, a fuller picture can be seen. It's not just drought – but includes floods and other destructive weather.

"I also withheld rain from you, when there were still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city.” (Amos 4:7, NKJV)

“I smote you with blasting [as a result of drought] and with mildew [as a result of floods] and with hail [destructive weather] in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the Lord.” (Haggai 2:17 KJV )

The following warning was given by the Prophet Amos just before the Assyrian invasion of Israel in 721-718 BC:

"I also withheld rain from you, when there were still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city. So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water, but they were not satisfied; yet you have not returned to Me," says the Lord …Your young men I killed with a sword, [In Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan] … yet you have not returned to Me," says the Lord.

"I overthrew some of you, [in two World Wars] as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning; yet you have not returned to Me," says the Lord.

"Therefore thus will I do to you, O Israel; because I will do this to you, PREPARE TO MEET YOUR GOD, O ISRAEL!" (Amos 4:7-12, NKJV)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
