                    A Message From Peter James         

                                           From Stream To Stand Pipe

                 

                          

     <=---------------------- The Regression ------------------------------ =>

 

      A WATER leak that gushed through a hamlet for 16 YEARS was finally stemmed —

when a farmer turned it off at a stopcock.

Water board officials had always insisted the stream pouring down a lane was

a natural SPRING.

The leak created a constant river — and even a muddy pool at its “source”.

 

We have been through many months of price hikes for petrol because of real and

fictitious  shortages. Now a continuing and very real threat of water shortages is

facing the United Kingdom, and other parts of the world. In the U.K. hose pipe bans

and other severe measures to stretch the water supplies have been implemented in

some areas, with announcements expected in many more areas shortly.

 

We are now dealing with the basics of life, no water, no life.

 

Some years ago, in their manifest wisdom the government saw it fit to privatise

this basic life resource.

A water company has not even fixed a massive leak right next to their own offices

which has been pouring millions of gallons of water down the drain over a period

of 8 months. They said that they did not know how to fix it!

 

We can build nuclear bombs, and send spacecraft to Mars,

but we cannot fix a water leak!

 

The water companies have made handsome profits, while they admit to losing some

800 million gallons of water daily through leaky pipes.

That is an enormous amount of water.

With a UK population of approximately 60.4 million, that means approximately 13 gallons

of water are lost daily, for every man, woman, and child, in the country.

A drought stricken sub Saharan African would think that so much water would

be a luxury. We can see that our conduct is obscene. Some Interesting UK facts

are at the end of the document.

 

All that privatisation has done is that it has hastened our demise.

Instead of recognising how important a resource water is, and fixing leaks and

conserving water,  we prefer to plunder the deep underground aquifers of our water

reserves. These need to be replenished by the autumn and winter rains, when

vegetation is dormant.

As winter rain has been almost negligible in many areas, they have not been replenished.

The professionals say that even if it rained every day for the rest of the year

it would not make any difference, as vegetation would soak up the rain.

Rivers are rapidly drying up and becoming walking paths.

You hear that the mighty Amazon River in South America is also drying up.

Somalia amongst other places is facing severe drought and famine.

The problem certainly seems to be international.

Yet at the same time flooding has been devastating several countries in central Europe.

The wrong type of rain in the wrong season.  

 

Many of our houses are well stocked with TV’s, computers and other gadgetry.

Even in India, which has a water problem, more people have access to a TV than

to clean water.

It seems that we are going to be in the very same situation in the U.K.

There is talk about water tankers travelling with armed guards.

 

We tend to think that the illiterate Africans are responsible for their perennial

drought conditions.

It now appears that it is rather the industrial activity of Europe which has interfered

with the weather systems, which have resulted in the lack of rainfall in places like

Ethiopia. Industrial pollution has shifted the weather systems from their normal

positions.

 

Of course adding money to an equation tends to make it worse.

Soon greed will rear its ugly head.

 

However, there is more to the story than all of the above.

 

Rain is a blessing from the Eternal God.

Clean rain in due season is a critical blessing.

 

Leviticus 26:4  Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

 

It therefore follows that lack of rain, the wrong kind of rain, or rain at the wrong time,

means that the blessing of rain the right amount of rain at the correct season has been

with held.

 

Here we can see that Solomon was fully aware that the withholding of rain had a cause,

and that sin, was the cause of this result.

 

1 Kings 8:35  When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned

against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their

sin, when thou afflictest them:

1 Kings 8:36  Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants,

and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk,

and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.

 

Solomon knew that the solution to drought was that the people needed to be taught

by the Eternal God, the good way wherein they should walk.

 

Moses made it clear that drought, the shutting up of the heavens, would result in the destruction of  from off the good land, which they had been given.

 

Deuteronomy 11:17  And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you,

and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit;

and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.

 

I am saying that sin and rebellion are the cause of all our problems.

But, many people feel, and some even infer that they have no sin.

 

The very section of the Bible that exposes sin, is the section which the modern

Christian tries to discard.

Of course I mean the Old Testament.

There we not only see various sins described, we also see the secret activities,

which we have no means of knowing, exposed.

It is very easy to see sin in others, but not in ourselves.

As our present condition in the Tribulation which is gathering pace,

is beginning to affect us, we need to understand what is going on, and take the proper

course of action to try to resolve our dire situation.

 

We have main political and religious leaders involved in immoral sinful misconduct.

I am not pointing a finger. What I want to show is that the media and the public

in general says that we should not concern ourselves with the private lives of these

public figures. I am not even saying that we should concern ourselves,

however, what I am saying is that the country at large suffers, when its leaders sin,

regardless of what our ‘opinions’ are, about how well an individual carries out his paid

employment. Furthermore, our general response shows that the general public,

at the very least condones these wrong activities. 

 

Lying, stealing, vulgarity, abortion, plundering the poor, gross sexual behaviour, idolatry,

adultery, fornication, violence, etc. etc., are accepted as normal.

 

When I say rebellion this is what I mean.

 

Psalms 78:8  And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation;

a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not steadfast

with God.

 

Isaiah 1:23  Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth

gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the

cause of the widow come unto them.

 

Isaiah 30:9  That this is a rebellious people, lying children,

children that will not hear the law of the LORD:

 

Ezekiel 2:3  And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel,

to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers

have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.

 

I do believe that the English speaking people comprise a great proportion of the

ancient nation of Israel if not all of it.

I believe that the Jews are Judah which is different.

Of course many of the “Jews”, are not really Jews at all.

This is one of two references. The second is Revelation 2:9.

 

Revelation 3:9  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are

Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy

feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

 

I believe that the English, are the tribe of Ephraim.

It is no accident that English is the main language of industry, education and

Christianity. When you actually read the bible with this in mind you will then see how

dire our situation is.

 

Isaiah 28:1  Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim,

whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of

them that are overcome with wine!

 

Regarding nations, we have to keep in mind that the bible is mainly about the Israelite

and Jewish nation, and the nations with whom they come into contact. The New

Testament after Acts is about Christians, but even then the majority of believers were

Jews.

 

I strongly suggest that you read the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel to get

some idea of what is going on. You will not understand all of it, no one does.

Like a huge puzzle you will find a little bit here and a little bit there.

 

Isaiah 28:10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line,

line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

 

Isaiah 28:7  But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out

of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are

swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision,

they stumble in judgment.  

 

At any week preceding a holiday when I visit the local huge supermarket I see vast

quantities of alcohol going through the checkouts.

 

My purpose for introducing this section was just to show that we are not seeing reality,

and the truth is very different from what you see in the media and hear in the

churches.

We are doing the very opposite of what we are commanded by the Eternal God to do.

 

There is a cause for drought, for war, for family breakdown and every evil.

We deal with all these things on this website.

It is not exclusive to us others are also doing this.

The idea that Grace is license to do what we want, to do good works, and have a good

time, is not of God.

The way that we should conduct ourselves is clearly defined, in the word of God.

 

We can probably add that many of the activities which obviously show the lack of a

sound mind, have been allowed to take place, by the Eternal God, in order to wake

people up.

 

Simple logic, indeed even the advice from the water companies, not to have dripping

taps, to repair leaks quickly, should first of all be applied by the water companies

themselves. It is common sense, that a five year old can understand.

The fact is that we needed more reservoirs and none were built for whatever reason,

objections etc.

 

The reality is that no water no life, though you might well have tel-lie-vision and the

world cup.

 

2 Timothy 1:7  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,

and of love, and of a sound mind.

 

Let us make the above verse crystal clear.

It tells us that a sound mind is a gift from God.

Since most people including the ministers of the churches and  of the government,

actively oppose the Eternal God, according to this verse they will have unsound minds.

Do you now understand why you are unable to understand the decisions of the

government, of the churches, and the courts?

 

It is very clear that our leaders and their supporters do not act with sound minds.

 

We can also say that they are often professional people and well educated,

however, it is because of a lack of knowledge that we are in confusion and perishing.

 

Hosea 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected

knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast

forgotten the law of thy God,

I will also forget thy children.

 

I mentioned the wrong kind or rain.

In Britain we are famous for having the wrong kind of everything.

When things go wrong in the winter, we have the wrong kind of snow for example.

 

We can see the wrong kind of rain here.

 

Deuteronomy 28:24  The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust:

from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

 

My car is coated with a gentle coating of dust, that is coming out of the sky.

In my area, the rain clouds are always visible, but they just pass us by as they go

elsewhere, often passing other places by as well.

 

I heard a phone-in radio program, and a caller from the North of the country said that

he did not see what all the fuss was about as they had plenty of rain in the Yorkshire

area.

I really do wonder at the comments listeners make on phone-in programs.

 

In Amos it is very clear that rain can be on one city and then not on another.

Often the parched ground cannot absorb the rain and flooding results.

Those who do not need the rain, keep getting it, and those who need it get very little,

if any.

 

Amos 4:7  And also I have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three

months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain

upon another city:

one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.

 

I am fully aware of the use of weather as a weapon.

Some days you can see the artificially made Chemtrail clouds absolutely covering the

sky. Other times for several days you can see overcast days with the threat of rain but

hardly a drop falls.

What those people who tamper with the weather need to understand is that they have

to start factoring the Eternal God into the equation, as He is very real and He takes

an active interest in His creation.

 

Jeremiah 14:22  Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain?

or can the heavens give showers? art not thou he, O LORD our God?

therefore we will wait upon thee: for thou hast made all these things.

 

We have stated several times that we are in the tribulation right now.

Rain is going to play a crucial part in these end times.

The withholding of rain is something that the two witnesses will do, as they desire.

 

Revelation 11:6  These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their

prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth

with all plagues, as often as they will.

 

It happened in the past and it will happen again.

Elijah did that.

 

1 Kings 17:1  And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto

Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew

nor rain these years, but according to my word.

 

The terrible drought was only broken after Elijah prayed that it would be broken.

 

James 5:17  Elias  (Elijah) was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed

earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three

years and six months.

 

As we have said so many times there is a price for our rebellion.

 

Jeremiah 14:1 ¶  The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah concerning the dearth.

2  Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and

the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.

3  And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters: they came to the pits, and

found no water; they returned with their vessels empty; they were ashamed and

confounded, and covered their heads.

4  Because the ground is chapt, for there was no rain in the earth, the plowmen were

ashamed, they covered their heads.

5  Yea, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook it, because there was no grass.

6  And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed up the wind like

dragons;  their eyes did fail, because there was no grass.

7  O LORD, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it for thy name’s sake:

for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee.

 

We cannot really blame Iraq for our plight.

In fact the coalition troops destroyed their ability to get fresh water and power,

which they had before the invasion to bring them ‘freedom’.

 

We have written many messages showing that we will reap what we sow.

It might not happen how we envisage it, but happen it will.

If it does not happen, then the Eternal God would not be faithful to His word.

 

Galatians 6:7  Be not deceived; God is not mocked:

for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

 

Some might feel that they have been wise and paid attention, and they have saved some

rain water in water butts, I have some water in water butts. If that is where our faith

is, we are indeed in just as much trouble as those who have no water.

 

We would be very surprised how much water we actually use every day.

Water butts would only last a very short time.

 

In any case to focus on catching a few gallons of water is to miss the point,

just like the woman at the well did.

 

John 4:7  There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her,

     Give me to drink.

8   (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

9   Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew,

     askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria?

     for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

10  Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God,

     and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him,

     and he would have given thee living water.

11  The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep:

     from whence then hast thou that living water?

12  Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well,

     and drank thereof himself,  and his children, and his cattle?

13  Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

14  But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst;

     but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up

     into everlasting life.

15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not,

     neither come hither to draw.

 

Christ was thirsty so He asked for a drink of water.

However, He knew that the important thing that the woman needed was living water,

and not just the physical water.

In the book of beginnings, Genesis, we are introduced to the Tree of Life, and that is the tree from which Adam and Eve, and ourselves should eat.

Here, Christ introduced us to Living Water, which is the same as the Tree of Life.

Without physical water we would eventually die.

Without Living Water, which is none other than Christ, we would be lost.

There would be no salvation.

 

Wisdom decrees that we quit our rebellion, our pride, arrogance and idolatry,

and become obedient.

 

The following verses clearly explain the cause of drought.

 

Jeremiah 5:24  Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God,

that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us

the appointed weeks of the harvest.

25  Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden

good things from you.

26  For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth

snares; they set a trap, they catch men.

27  As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit:

therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.

28  They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked:

they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper;

and the right of the needy do they not judge.

29  Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD:

shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

 

On the Rhema pages on our website, we have the following very relevant statement.

 

“ YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE!!!   Come Drink Of The Water of Life.”  

 

Your house is truly on fire.

There is no water in the taps, which can put it out.

It is time to repent before it is too late and Come Drink Of The Water of Life.

 

You have a choice.

You must chose.

You have been commanded to choose life.

 

Deuteronomy 30:19  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,

that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life,

that both thou and thy seed may live:

 

These are the closing words of the Bible.

 

Revelelation22:17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth

say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will,

let him take the water of life freely.

 

You can see from this that water is of critical importance in every possible way.

The Eternal God invites you to take of this water freely.

To this I say Amen.

 

The relevant documents on the website are too many to mention.

I recommend that you browse the site for additional messages.

 

    Zechariah 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left

   of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year

   to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

   17  And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto

   Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

 

                       The only way out of our dilemmas is Jesus Christ.

                                                     He is the only way of escape.

                                                              Praise the Lord.

                                                        Come soon Lord Jesus.

                                                                      Amen.

                                                                      

                                       Some Interesting Facts about water in the UK.   

 

Water companies are making record profits despite presiding over sharp increases

in water leakages.

Figures from the Office of Water Services (Ofwat) reveal rising leak rates for five

of Britain's 23 water firms between 2001 and 2005.

 

United Utilities, which supplies the North West of England,

allowed 132 million gallons to leak away each day last year,

while pre-tax profits rose from £237.9 million to £244 million.

 

Three Valleys Water lost 39 million gallons a day last year,

two million gallons more than in 2001, while pre-tax profits of the firm,

which covers parts of Essex and Hertfordshire,

rose by 32 per cent from £31.6 million to £42.7 million.

 

South Staffordshire Water, which serves the West Midlands,

lost more than 19 million gallons a day in 2005,

but saw pre-tax profits rise 21 per cent to £18 million in 2005.

 

Cambridge Water Company lost 3.7 million gallons a day in 2005,

as pre-tax profits rose to over £4 million.

 

Thames Water, Britain's biggest water company, is the worst offender.

Since 2001, its daily leakages have risen from 181 million to 241 million gallons

- up 32 per cent.

Over this period the firm's profits have dipped slightly from £259 million in 2001

to £256 million last year.

 

The figures come as millions in the South East face the most wide-ranging water bans in a decade.

Thames Water's hosepipe ban from next month will affect 14 million homes.

A further six companies have either announced bans or plan to impose them from April.

With an estimated 800 million gallons haemorrhaging each day from antiquated mains networks

- enough to supply almost nine million homes - consumer groups yesterday called on the nation's

water companies to do more to plug the leaks.

 

The Consumer Council for Water said there was more chance of a resentful public accepting bans

if water companies put their own houses in order first.

 

The National Consumer Council said companies should be forced to demonstrate that

they had done everything possible to limit leaks.

If they have not taken all steps yet are still imposing bans,

this would not seem a very fair approach," said a spokesman.

"If water companies are continuing to make large profits there is no reason

why they shouldn't be addressing these leaks."
