Are You Cursing Your Land?
John W Robinson

Today we are having severe drought in some areas and floods in others. It has not always been this way. Why the change? Who is responsible? LARGE portions of the United States, which were once productive, are now drought stricken. Streams and springs are drying up in many areas! Much of the topsoil in several states is blowing away. Tornadoes are sweeping inland farther, and with greater frequency than ever before! Why all this distress? Is it a naturally caused situation which can be explained away? OR IS IT PUNISHMENT FOR SIN? If it is punishment, for whose sin are YOU being punished? Why Climatic Rampage? Here is the answer- When God gave Israel the law in Mount Sinai, He told them to cultivate the land and harvest its fruit for six years (Ex. 23:10-11). But He also included this little-known, though vitally important statute: "the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie still... In like manner shall you deal with your vineyard and your oliveyard."
