Cape Town : Out of Water

Cape Town : Out of Water

“It’s not going to be a surprise. The city is not going to run out of water suddenly,” Keller said. – CNBC

God’s first call to repentance is seldom a “surprise.”

This is the word of the Lord to Jeremiah concerning the drought: “Judah mourns, her cities languish; they wail for the land, and a cry goes up from Jerusalem.

The nobles send their servants for water; they go to the cisterns but find no water. They return with their jars unfilled; dismayed and despairing, they cover their heads. The ground is cracked because there is no rain in the land; the farmers are dismayed and cover their heads.

Even the doe in the field deserts her newborn fawn because there is no grass. Wild donkeys stand on the barren heights and pant like jackals; their eyesight fails for lack of pasture.”(Jeremiah 14:1-6)

As typical the “experts” are wrong, the “good news” is to repent and seek the power and will of the holy God.

The good news, experts said, is there will be time for governments to start preparing for a Day Zero scenario. – CNBC

God uses thirst for physical water to lovingly seek to bless each person by turning them from their wicked ways.

Too bad most would rather have the eternal thirst that is in hell than give up their lies, pride, and sins.

Thirsty in your soul?

If you drink the water Jesus offers expect to have your sinfulness called to account before God can give you Living Water.

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”

Jesus told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.” (John 4:13-16)

(cnbc.com)—That future isn’t just Cape Town’s. It’s a scenario cities around the globe may face, experts say.

It may be hard to fathom just how cities could be at risk of a water scarcity crisis when approximately 70 percent of the world is made up of the resource. The stark reality, however, is that the percentage of fresh water probably only amounts to about 2.5 percent, according to often-cited assessments.
