Genesis 13:10, Why is the plain of Jordan now dry?

Question: In this passage there is a reference of the plain of Jordan being well watered like the garden of the Lord.  What happened?  The majority of this area is now dry. Answer: Near the Jordan river there are still "well watered" places, but it is not as it once was. Many things have happened that causes this. Primarily it is a change of weather. God promised Israel that they would have the early and latter rains if they obeyed and loved Him (Deuteronomy 11:13-14). Israel is not fulfilling their side of the agreement with God, but when they do in the Millennium, the rain and vegetation will be restored. Another factor to consider is the judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah, we do not know exactly how that impacted the surrounding environment. The final change I'll mention is the population and nations that are pulling from the water resources. -PJ
