Why it is going to collapse

Updated on April 7, 2013

This cannot keep going on.

“Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you, the land itself must observe a Sabbath to the Lord. For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. But in the seventh year the land is to have a year of Sabbath rest, a Sabbath to the Lord. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards. Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest. Lev. 25:2-5 New International Version


Do you believe just because it is old it is worthless?


The Word of God is older than the hills. It is to be trusted and obeyed because it is the wisest.


Because they did not obey Gods commandment in the United States and give the land a rest, is it not a historical fact that that is what caused the “dust bowl” of the nineteen thirties?


Now concerning the farmland in the world, how many farmers give their crops a years rest?


Indeed, how much farmland in the world is owned by big companies like Monsanto? Do they care about obeying Gods word or about profit?


You see, it used to be that farmers rotated their crops. That meant that one year they would grow say vegetables and the next use it for cows to graze on. It allowed the ground to regain the nutrients it gave up to the vegetable the year before.


Now, because they do not give the land a rest it is growing weaker and weaker every year. This means they have to put stronger and stronger fertilizer on it. This means there are less and less nutrients in our food.


It is true that fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today. The main culprit in this disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion: Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=soil-depletion-and-nutrition-loss

Eventually it is going to collapse.


When that happens, and it could happen any time now, there is going to be a world wide famine like never before in history.


When that happens, do not say:” God, how can you do this to us?”


It is not Gods fault, it is mans for refusing to obey Gods wise command.


The natural world that God has made Must not be used at whim; We serve as stewards of His earth, Responsible to Him. —D. DeHaan

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) move people to more sustainable and organic farming and move their hearts to obey Your discerning Word. I ask this in the name of He who feeds us spiritually Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

      Good morning precious little sister.

      I wish I could grow my own veggies and fruit as well but the air here is too polluted.

      God bless you with a beautiful green thumb.

      I love your post, Teacher Joe. If I could, I would grow my own veggies and fruits responsibly. As caretakers of God's earth, we should do our best to keep it healthy and strong. Blessings.

      Good morning brothers and sisters.

      Yes Timlove, I believe the time is upon mankind to reap what they have sowed and that is part of the great tribulation which is almost upon us.

      That is why I always try to support the organic farmers always exploring, but they need to bring down their prices. Their prices are for profit not because the do not grow enough.

      Very well said Blossom. I am sure you are seeing it with your mining in Australia.

      God bless you with the wisdom to take care of His garden.

      I do so agree that we become greedy and do not rest the land properly and then complain to God when we reap the consequences. We were given the land and our environment to care for and often we don't do it very well at all.

      I believe you are correct in your writing, just recently, i commented that food, esp. chicken did not taste as good as it used to. I know only a few small farmers, the big corporations have taken over and profit is their goal. Thank you.....

      You are so right teacherjoe. One of the many reasons why all creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God (Romans 8:19)

      Revelation also talks about those who destroy the earth

      Revelation 11:18 The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people who revere your name, both great and small-- and for destroying those who destroy the earth."(monsanto)
