It is hot and dry in the Southland of the Holy Land. Last night at 9:00 (21:00), the temperatures around Israel were as hot as what is normal for this time of year at mid-day.
As much as God has promised the perpetuity of agricultural growth, of temperatures, seasons, and cycle of days (Gen 8:22), nonetheless the stability of the Earth’s life seems to be less predictable and consistent as the last days progress towards the end-times. We go from colder/wetter-than-normal immediately to hotter/dryer-than-normal, and back again. Life goes on by the power of God’s Word holding all things together, whether people are oblivious to the realities of the times we live in, or whether we discern the signs of the times.
Praise the Lord for His goodness and mercies to sinful humanity!
