Extreme Heat Update

A Convergence. ‘Fearful Sights, Perilous Times, Natural Disasters Increasing Like Labor Pains.’ 50% (5) of the U.S. is in drought, and no region has been spared. Five (5) states affected by a ‘flash drought.’

Romans 10:14 “But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?”

Matthew 9:37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.

Luke 10:2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).

… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)

Matthew 24:21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.

Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.

CNN — 

More than 50% of the country was in some level of drought for the fourth week in a row, the US Drought Monitor reported Thursday, as the combination of extreme heat and low rainfall is drawing the moisture out of plants and soil.

And no region of the country has been spared. The West and California remains engulfed in a multi-year megadrought. But even in the Northeast, a severe “flash drought” – one that comes on rapidly – has intensified and expanded from Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts into New Hampshire and Maine.

Yet even as drought is increasingly worrying in the Northeast, Midwest and South, waves of extreme rainfall are menacing parts of Missouri and Kentucky.

A flash flood warning was issued for the western suburbs of St. Louis early Thursday morning as rainfall rates climbed to several inches per hour, prompting fears of a repeat of last week’s flooding emergency.

Scientists have warned that extremes on both ends of the spectrum will become more frequent and more intense as the planet warms.

Drought expands in Northeast

Drier conditions in the Northeast led to moderate and severe drought expansion in the New York City area and parts of New England, the Drought Monitor reported.

“Short-term moderate and severe drought continued to expand, especially in the New York City area, New Jersey, and New England, where rainfall was sparse and temperatures were a few degrees above normal,” the Drought Monitor said.

The worsening dry conditions have already strained water resources in the region, and officials have been warning residents to be mindful about their water usage. In mid-July, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont asked residents to dial down their water usage, in hopes of preventing “harm should the drought become prolonged.”

Forecasters expect this trend to continue as “temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal across the Northeast and New England on Thursday afternoon, where it will feel like the upper 90s and 100s,” said CNN meteorologist Monica Garrett.

The Drought Monitor noted that water restrictions and farming impacts were becoming more common in the region as the dry conditions persisted for another week.

Texas and the West

Drought also expanded in some areas of the Southern Plains, where temperatures are running warmer than normal – particularly in Texas, where the consequences have clawed into agriculture and cattle ranching.

“Drought impacts across Texas ranged from crop failure to water supply problems, in one case from a well failure,” the Drought Monitor reported.

Cattle ranchers in the state told CNN the conditions have been so dire and the economic strain so large that they can no longer maintain healthy livestock, which has forced them to sell off their cows for slaughter way ahead of schedule. Income is the bottom line on these decisions, the ranchers said, as the cost of vehicles, equipment and diesel skyrockets.

There was one place that saw improvement in the drought over the past week: heavy rainfall fell in parts of the Texas Panhandle east into Oklahoma, Arkansas, northern Mississippi, and portions of Tennessee, leading to an improvement in conditions across that region.

Matthew 24:22

And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

Mark 13:20

And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).
