In parts of Iran there has been no rain for 14 years. In Tehran the ground water is almost finished.
Signs of the drought in Iran — which, according to experts, has lasted for more than two decades — are not very visible in the capital. There are many parks and trees because of the active city government.
The reasons for Isfahan’s water crisis are many, but trouble began with a severe drought in 1999 that gripped large parts of the country. In the Isfahan region, the drought worsened in 2008 and persists to this day. This difficult but manageable situation was made far worse by political mismanagement.
Under former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who held power from 2005 to 2013, the government took control of the watershed away from a unified water authority and split it among the self-serving leaders of the provinces it flowed through, who assigned the water for use in agriculture, industry and for domestic consumption without regard for protecting its supply. This was a politically motivated decision that proved popular in the short run but created damaging competition for a scarce resource.
Nowhere is the drought more visible than in Iran’s former capital, Isfahan, a desert city 250 miles south of here. It is home to a once mighty river, the Zayanderud, or the River of Life, that cuts through the historic center like a clumsily rolled out carpet.

Isfahan in deep trouble
But Isfahan’s plight is just one example of a water crisis in a country gripped by 14 successive years of drought. Iran is hardly alone in facing a water shortage but its problems are acute. A growing population and shrinking economy make the situation difficult, but its position at the centre of a politically unstable region where competition for water is intense makes it dangerously volatile.

When Obama wants to lift the trade embargo on Iran, he comes to the rescue of the Ayatollah regime.
Because of their constant issues of curses against Israel, a curse has fallen on all Iranians. There is simply no rains from the heavens.
The solution to this problem is found in the Bible. The moment you start to bless the Jewish people, you will receive blessings.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
amen. and so be it to all the enemies of God.
Dear John Daugherty
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
Thanks for this comment. Yes, it is obvious. All who have cursed what Jesus re-birthed in 1948, will get the following message. – Away from me, you who are cursed. The worst form of deception, is to mock God of Israel in the name of “Christ”. That is why the Messiah warned us: Watch out!….False Christs will come, and decieve even the elect!.
I just read the other day that rainfall in the nation of Israel has increased 800% since the re-founding of the nation. I expect that God is trying to tell us something–don’t you?
The “heavens are telling” of the Glory of God through Israel–the “woman with twelve stars upon her head”. “She” is the nation of Israel who gave birth to Messiah Jesus and, by way of His Blood, His Body and Bride, the Church (see Revelation 12). After the Church is snatched away from the jaws of the dragon, watch as “she” is lifted on the wings of an eagle to a place of safety to be protected throughout the Tribulation while the dragon goes in search of “others” of “her children” (the Gentile Tribulation believers).
Jesus said that even the chosen ones would be deceived “if that were possible”–implying that it is not. (Matthew 24:24) Israel will awaken to faith in their Messiah very, very soon.
Zechariah chapter 14 confirms this, both water that will flow out of Jerusalem and droubt.
And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
This is a prophesy in our time.
