What does scripture say about weather

30 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

For example, if hurricane winds were 50 mph or 90 mph, is God in control of that?

Or say a blizzard hits two parts of the country, one city gets 14 inches and another gets 21 inches.

Does God know how many inches that city will get, and can he control the weather.

Blessihgs DRS...There are many more verses of Scripture to show us that God is in control of the weather but I just copied a few for you...Love Kwik
Job 25:27-28
"When He imparted weight to the wind And meted out the waters by measure, When He set a limit for the rain And a course for the thunderbolt, Then He saw it and declared it; He established it and also searched it out.
Matthew 8:26

He *said to them, "Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?" Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm. The men were amazed, and said, "What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?"

Job5:10

"He gives rain on the earth And sends water on the fields
Psalms 135:7


He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who makes lightnings for the rain, Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.
Jeremia

When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain, And brings out the wind from His store
Leviticus 26:4


then I shall give you rains in their season, so that the land will yield its produce and the trees of the field will bear their fruit
Jeremiah 5:24

`They do not say in their heart, "Let us now fear the LORD our God, Who gives rain in its season, Both the autumn rain and the spring rain, Who keeps for us The appointed weeks of the harvest."
Genesis 9:14-16


"It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh. "When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth

Go ask Elijah if God allows Faith to control anything, including the weather.

 

1Ki 17:1  Now Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the LORD, the God of Israel, lives, before whom I stand, there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word." 
 
to..
 
1Ki 18:42  So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Mount Carmel. And he bowed himself down on the earth and put his face between his knees. 
1Ki 18:43  And he said to his servant, "Go up now, look toward the sea." And he went up and looked and said, "There is nothing." And he said, "Go again," seven times. 
1Ki 18:44  And at the seventh time he said, "Behold, a little cloud like a man's hand is rising from the sea." And he said, "Go up, say to Ahab, 'Prepare your chariot and go down, lest the rain stop you.'"

Thank you kwik and blessings.

So why does God control tornadoes to hit certain houses or mudslides to kill families,

or control ice storms just enough to make the roads icy and kill more people etc etc...

like all those horror stories on weather(dot)com.

DRS,

Imo, I don't think anyone can answer this question definitively unless they have had a private conversation with God and he told them the answers.

We all know God can do anything and that all things are subject to his will, should he be active. We also all know God has set forth forces at work that don't need his every second attention, like gravity. What we don't know is how personally involved he is in their occurrences. So many factors to consider, including the answer of prayers.

Job certainly learned that God is in control and He sends it all from His storehouse. So yes He knows the storm and the rain and He knows how much. Jonah learned about the sun when he hid under the plant for shade and God sent the worm to eat the plant.

The Bible says that the rain falls on the just and the unjust. Man nerds to be ready and trust God to protect him.

Who knows why God allows it. It's frustrating to figure out however.

Yep, we will never understand it in it's entirety. Why does He allow anything "bad' to happen? 20% of my wife's country was recently wiped out by a cyclone. Millions are still homeless, and many will never fully recover. Why? We can't explain why, except to say in everything is God's purpose. We just cannot even to begin to fathom what His purpose is. 

 

So when we are affected by a natural disaster, and illness, an accident, it is natural for us to question why.

 

But we should never forget that He loves us. Which might sound weird but the scripture "Rom 8:28  And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose", is very pertinent, because the "good" is an eternal good.

 

Paul gets it when he says..

 

Rom 8:16  The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 
Rom 8:17  and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. 
Rom 8:18  For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 
 
For "not worth comparing" read, not worth questioning. The bible tells us all we need to know, it does not tell us what we want to know.
 
We blew that in the garden........

But Rom 8:28 is speaking about believers.

What about a mother that is an unbeliever who loses her entire family in a mudslide. Did she deserve that?

Romans 8:18 is speaking about believers also,

so for example say the mother who lost her family commits suicide and doesn't reach salvation.

How do you compare that to his glory that was never revealed to her?

You don't, because if you attempt to you are putting God in a box.

 

There are many scriptures that point toward his ways not being our ways.

 

My father died and atheist. Am I happy about that? Of course not! Do I question it? Not really.

 

I have learned to question things with no answer is futile.

 

But! If we follow His command we might be the one, who brings one, to the Lord. And that is what I concentrate on.

 

Let me ask you a question, since you love asking them?

 

What are you seeking in the answer to your #1 question? How would any answer, positive or negative in your mind, change your Faith in God?

It wouldn't change my faith in the least.

These questions are based on dumb curiosity and wondering.

My mom had told me a story the other day about a mother losing her whole family in a mudslide,

it made me sad and to question things. :(

Matthew 24:7-8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

 

Matthew chapter 24 talks about what will happen before the end of the world.

 

I would say that God uses weather to remind us of how huge he is. Whenever I am outside and see a lighting-bolt and hear thunder, it reminds me that God is much bigger than I am. If God wanted to strike me down he could. If God wanted me to have a plentiful harvest, he could shower my fields with rain. I also believe that God sometimes uses extreme weather to punish the wicked.

Isa 5: 8

Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!

Sounds like God new we would bunch up in apartments and cities like we do.

 

The mudslide thing is more of a human thing; Someone ( a county inspecter, engineer ) new it was not a place to build upon.

 

 God did not invent those highways all over the place to collect Ice.

Psa 99:8

Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

Ecc 7:29

Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.

Psa 106:39

Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

Gen 11:6

And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

many things brings upon himself. 

 

Ecclesiastes 1:7, "All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again." How did the writer of Ecclesiastes know the water cycle of condensation and evaporation? The sun evaporates water from the ocean, water vapor rises and becomes clouds. This water in the clouds falls back to the earth as rain, collects in rivers, and makes its way back to the ocean. 

Ecclesiastes 1:6, "The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again ACCORDING TO HIS CIRCUITS." How did the writer of Ecclesiastes know the wind traveled within circuits? How did he know something that the aerologists and meteorologists are just now discovering? THINK ABOUT IT! How can these men, with their limited knowledge thousands of years ago, be so far ahead of science?

Psalm 8:8, ". . . whatsoever passeth through the PATHS OF THE SEAS." After reading Psalm 8:8, Matthew Maury, a U.S. Naval officer, set out to locate these curious "paths in the seas." He discovered the oceans have paths which flow through them. He became known as the "pathfinder of the seas"

 

 

I believe God created the earth in a way that when certain variables come together there can be rain, sleet, or hurricane etc

And the he created the ocean streams( currents) and rivers and the sun plays apart.

Did God command the mudslide to occur and to take out the people that it did?

 

Or was the mudslide a result of natural occurrences and sadly certain individuals happened to be in the way?

 

This is one of those issues theologians have battled for centuries and will continue to do so.

 

Sometimes all we can do is ask the Lord what He wants us to know through these things and find your peace in His sovereign ways.

    I used to question or even wonder why God allows many tragedies & especially sickness,disease ...even atrocities and to tell you the truth,I don't any more......I trust His higher purpose.You see,I have had my tangles with cancer....diagnosed as incurable,terminal.After suddenly awakened to the reality of how fragile life is,how temporal,I see everything as but a moment in time.Even to suffer an entire lifetime,say 70 or 80 years,it is not even a blink of an eye compared to eternity & what is in store.

   Many things are a result of mans interference,like mudslides(should one really build a 3 million dollar home on a hill by the seashore(Malibu)....or those exclusive highrise condominiums on the coast of Florida where it is 1 foot above sea level & a hurricaine can bring 160 mi per hr winds & tornadoes?How about when the levees broke?Then we have pesticides,fertility drugs,toxic waste & so on......so much devastation & destruction are ramifications of our own doing.......................and some are not,But in any event -whether it seems fair or not God will use any situation for His purpose,& it will be for someones good & He will get the Glory

     Somewhere a good Christian family will be gunned down for no reason at all and there will be one survivor who comes on TV,says she forgives the murderer,is praying for him & testifies to the world that if God were not by her side she could never make it......................God used a very evil situation that he did not cause for His Glory & the good of others. 

      I am grateful to be a witness to Gods goodness & Glory,if my suffering can bring just one soul to the foot of the cross then it is well worth it....it is only for a moment but someones eternity is a very,very,very long time! Oh,also....you wondered about someone who has not reached Salvation,Our Loving Father would not allow death to take someone that He has not presented the opportunity to accept His Son....it is not His character to be unfair,He is Fair & Just and not a respecter of persons.................everyone is given their measure of Faith & everyone gets to choose life or death

        God Bless you,we cannot know all of Gods ways but we certainly know enough to trust Him & have hope & faith no matter what happens

God allowed that cancer in you so you can be a light in this world for the Lord through your suffering, and you shine bright kwik. It takes strength and courage to face that. It says a lot about your character. The Lord is with you kwik. - David

You know what? It can have an effect on us whether we know it or not. Wrestling with things that the bible does not tell us about in any detail because they are not important in the greater scheme of God's plan for us is dangerous to some, and for any seeker reading this it can be a huge (false) put off.

 

It is why Paul said...

 

Col 3:1  If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 
Col 3:2  Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. (he talks about anger, etc, but it is relevant)
 
He also tells us to renew our minds. I take that of meaning kick out the stuff that has no use, no answer, and leads to us or someone else questioning God.
 
Because that is what we are doing here.

New King James Version (NKJV)

45 b: for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Some may ask - why the unjust too?

But so many things are in play -

Cause and affect - nature,

free will - man.
