Israel is entering its sixth official year of drought, the Water Authority said Sunday.Many of Israel’s lakes, riverbeds and aquifers are at unprecedented 100-year lows.
The Sea of Galilee is dangerously close to its “black line,” the level below the intake pipes of the water pumps that send the lake’s water to nearby towns.
Israelis have not felt the current drought as acutely as past dry spells because Israel in recent years constructed five massive desalination plants on the Mediterranean coast that now provide some 70 percent of the country’s drinking water directly from the sea. The state also recycles some 86% of its waste water for agriculture. Two more desalination plants are in the planning stages.
But all these efforts may not be enough to keep the water flowing as it does during years of plenty. In May, the Water Authority rolled out a public ad campaign entitled “Israel is drying out… again,” aimed at reminding Israelis that saving water at home is still important.
To emphasize the point, the authority said if the drought continues for another year, it would start imposing limits on Israelis’ water consumption.
The Sea of Galilee, Israel’s largest natural water source, is now some 214.2 meters (703 feet) below sea level, the authority said, fully 80 centimeters lower than at the launch of the ad campaign some four months ago. That places it over a meter below the danger zone of the lower red line. In 2001, the Sea of Galilee was at an even lower level, 214.87 meters (705 feet) below sea level, which was christened as the lake’s “black line.”

Jesus the Messiah will return to Earth. His second coming is one of the core doctrines in the Messianic faith in Him. The Messiah restored Israel in 1948, and gifted the Jews the control over the city of Jerusalem I 1967. For all who believes, these events are fulfilments of prophecies and signs that His sudden return is imminent.
The Messiah will return to Israel, and set up His judgment throne in the city of Jerusalem. The rebirth of the state of Israel in 1948 is inline with the Prophetic Word. The Messiah will return to His own people of the flesh, the Jewish people. His people are also non-Jews, the spiritual Israel of God, all who believe He is the Messiah. When he return as the Lion of Judah, He will separate the sheep and the goats. His sheeps are all who believe in Him. Let them be Jews or gentiles. He will take them with Him to the Kingdom of Heaven, were all his followers though the ages will live forever.
The city of Jerusalem has a central role in the second coming of the Messiah. Jerusalem is the city were all living humans will face their final judgment.
And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
One of the sign of the end of the age of grace, is sinful Israel. 70 per cent of Israeli nationals are secular. They neither believe in God of Israel, nor in His Only Begotten Son their own Messiah. Only a few per cent of Jews in this generation believe that the Messiah has already come, and have died for their sins in the city of Jerusalem. The worst drought in Israel as a prophetic message, a warning, who call the Jewish people to repentance and faith in Him. Another sign is the pandemic Pride movement, which also rallies hundreds of thousands of Israelis out in the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The book of Revelation chapter 11 explains that there will be a fierce spiritual battle in Zion. The two witnesses will be killed in the city of our risen Lord. Also described as Sodoma and Egypt. Many secular Israelis embrace New Age, also called Neo Buddhism. They give honour to all kinds of idols, and all the starry hosts.
He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
There is only one name, under which man can be saved. His blood is the only blood that can wash away the guilt of sins. Repent, or perish. Give your life to Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus of Nazareth). Do it before its too late. He died for your sins at Calaray Hill 2000 years ago. He rose from the grave, and is alive forever more.
