There are many verses in the Word of God that teach us clearly that as a punishment for a nation’s sins, God will not make rain. He will withhold the rain.
Deuteronomy 11:17 “And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.
1Kings 8:35 When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them:
1Kings 17:7 And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.
2Chronicles 6:26 When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them;
2Chronicles 7:13 If I 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;
Isaiah 5:6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
Jeremiah 14:4 Because the ground is chapt, for there was no rain in the earth, the plowmen were ashamed, they covered their heads.
Zecariah 14:17 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.
Zecariah 14:18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.”
At this present time, today is February 20, 2015, there is a severe drought in California, and also in Brasil going on. There has been no heavy rain for three years.
Who makes the rain?
Does deforestation in the Amazon cause it not to rain?
Does a falsely called Global warming condition cause drought?
Isaiah 5:6 says God commands the clouds not to rain….” I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.”
God has done this as punishment in times past many times to force people to repent of their wickedness. He caused it not to rain for 3 1/2 years during the time of Elijah the prophet.
God does get angry at the wicked sins of the people and judges them in many ways, one way is withholding the rain. Drought.
Deuteronomy 11:17 “And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain,”
Remember, God does not answer to you, you answer for your behavior to Him. He drowned millions of people in the world wide flood of Noah. He warned them of their wickedness to repent for 120 years through the preaching of Noah.
All the earth had become wicked and violent, so God decided to judge the human race.
Genesis 6:11 “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.”
What is God angry at.
It is always His anger at sin:
Homosexuality and lesbianism, called Sodomy, murder, rape, abortion of millions of innocent babies in the womb, adultery, and fornication. All sex outside of the marriage between and man and his wife is fornication and adultery.Pornography, incest, Satanism, greed, pride, and more. Violence, robbery, idol worship, lying. These are things glorified in Hollywood movies made in California, and sent throughout the world. Giving honor to any God besides the Lord Jesus Christ, the ONLY true and living god, is idolatry. No, we are not politically correct. It does not matter if you believe these things or not, they are true and God always judges sin.
What should “I” do?
Turn from these abominations and stop doing them.
