CALIFORNIA'S WOES

By no means am I suggesting that California alone has seen terrible things happen in the last few months; other states have as well. However, I had noticed while preparing my next post on A NATION UNDER JUDGMENT? that I had bookmarked quite a number of events that relate specifically to California; enough so to make its own post.

These are the stories that have appeared since the last time I wrote about A NATION UNDER JUDGMENT? in July.

JULY 21: Nearly 100 ponds in California's Santa Clara County used to replenish ground water are dry or drying

FLASHBACK: David Wilkerson, a 'second judgment zone' of drought

David Wilkerson in his 1976 book Racing Toward Judgment (pg 70):

A second judgment zone will be stricken with drought. Long, tragic drought. Rivers and streams will dry up. Water tables will no longer support irrigation systems. Crops will wither and die in the fields. Winds will carry away topsoil, and this nation will suffer its worst dust bowl in all its history. None has been like it before, and none will ever be like it again. The drought will spread and cover thousands of square miles. Smaller dry zones in various parts of the nation will also develop. Thousands of acres are already in dust-bowl conditions. (emphasis mine)

If California does not fit David Wilkerson's prophetic word, what state does?
