God makes it very plain in many passages of Scripture that when a nation turns to wickedness it will get drought. Leviticus 26:18-20, Deuteronomy 11:16-17, I Kings 8:35, II Chronicles 6:26 and 7:13-14, Jeremiah 3:2-3 and 14:4-7 are just some.

New Zealand is turning blatantly to wickedness, wickedness that God specifically forbids, as it prepares to equate sodomy and lesbianism with marriage in its laws. Therefore severe drought is upon us, with some parts experiencing the driest January-February since records began.

We had the earthquakes in Christchurch. In the first, no one was killed and the cathedral was left standing. But the warning was not heeded, even to the extent that in the aftermath the bishop presided over a 'service' that included worship of a multitude of false gods. So the next earthquake shattered the cathedral. The city and its cathedral were of Christ only in name, but they had turned their backs on him and God.

New Zealand failed to take any notice, so now we are in drought. The Bible says in Galatians 6:7, 'Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.' No one, no community, no nation can turn away from God to gods of their own making and not suffer the consequences. God loves us and wants the best for us. When we reject him his love seeks to drive us back.

When some rain fell on Auckland on Sunday the 17th of March, albeit not enough to break the drought, that city was given further warnings in the form of two earthquakes in quick succession. Earthquakes too are shown in the Bible to be one of the ways that God shows his power, his will, and gives warnings to the wicked (including as Isaiah 2:19 & 21, Isaiah13:13, Isaiah 24:18, Joel 4:16, Haggai 2:6 & 21, Haggai12:26, Matthew 24:7, Matthew 27:54, Matthew 28:2, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11, Acts 126:26, Revelation 6:12, 8:5, 11:13, 11:19).
