And the people murmered against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: Exodus 15:24-25
When Israel had no water to drink, Moses used a tree to take away the bitterness. I remember a chemist saying of this, "Cellulose is a great ion exchanger." What would we do without technicians? Some of us would have to rely on faith.
There is the straightforward literal interpretation--the report of an event that occurred thousands of years ago--which I believe. Yet much can be made of this happening. In a very dry region a multitude were saved by a miraculous restoration of undrinkable water.
I bring this up because a little talked about situation is making our water unsafe to drink also. Not only is our water under attack, but the air we breathe and the food we eat. But this contamination does not taste bitter. Yet it is very dangerous. It is spread over the sky by a process called geo-engineering. The poison is one of the most abundant of all elements, aluminum.
Naturally occurring aluminum is not found in metallic form, but is locked up in very stable and harmless compounds, such as oxides. But the high level spraying that is used to distribute it, uses nano particles of aluminum which are highly toxic and far too small to filter out.
One of the greatest experts on this subject is Dane Wigington, whose video is linked below. He believes that though filters cannot catch the nano sized aluminum, perhaps the use of carbon can keylate them, binding them so they do not circulate. There may be hope in a biological process where these particles are captured, also.
But the hazards to life in our water are not limited to the presence of aluminum (and barium). Radioactivity in oceanic water and in the atmosphere are traveling from the destroyed Fukushima reactors.
As I study this poisoning of our world, I hear no one proposing a solution of any kind. Rather there is resignation to mutations and death. If ever there was a need for divine intervention, it is now. Can the One who intervened in the wilderness, do so again?
