Job 12:15



15 Behold, he withholdeth [`atsar] the waters [mayim], and they dry up [yabesh]: also he sendeth them out [shalach], and they overturn [haphak] the earth ['erets]. KJV-Interlinear



15 'Behold, He restrains the waters, and they dry up; And He sends them out, and they inundate the earth. NASB



Just a couple of years ago, a great tsunami took the lives of a couple of hundred thousand people. Many folks simply ascribe this event as a natural one.


In years past, tornado's, hurricanes, volcano eruptions, earthquakes, forest fires, floods, blizzards, hail storms, famine's and on and on goes the list of natural events that have occurred in this world.


Are they just chance occurrences? Are they just the natural function of this planets mechanism? Are they a part of the planets evolution? Are they ruled by natural forces, which have their own agenda, personified by the term 'Mother Nature?'




Are these events, occurrences which have been set in motion by a higher power? Namely God!


What we know from our studies, is that God established the Divine Decrees in eternity past. Those decrees include all of the details of history. We generally think of human details, but weather patterns and storms are included as well.


In the time of Job, the flood of Noah would have been one of the most notable events. People were still alive, namely Noah and his three sons, and possibly their wives, who were witness to the actual flood.


Subsequent to the flood, the Tower of Babel, the disruption of languages, the formation of nations, and probably several occurrences of extreme weather, such as the storm, which took the lives of Jobs children, would have been in the experiences of many folks still living in Jobs day.


Likewise, in Jobs day, God had spoken to people, using various methods of communication. Noah was one such person, and even though there are few documented communications between the time of Noah and Abraham, the fact that there were some communications implies that more communications could have occurred. Eliphaz stated that he had similar revelations.


And, even though Eliphaz is off track in his application of doctrine toward Job, he is never presented as being a liar.


So, all natural events in history, are under the control of God.


God created the universe, which includes our pre-historic era. Those dinosaurs died off, and then God restored the earth placing Adam and Eve in the Garden.


No rain ever occurred in the Garden. When Adam and Eve were evicted from the Garden, rain was still not a part of history. The earth was watered by mists and springs.


This is one of the reasons that folks laughed at Noah, when he said that rain was coming. What is rain? How can water fall from the sky? Surely, Noah must be drinking some funny water!


And yet dark clouds formed and the fountains of the deep opened up and the planet was flooded.


When the Rapture occurs at some point in the future, then the Tribulation and the last seven years of human history, under human and Satan's control, will commence.


The weather and all natural events will change dramatically. The world will not be influenced by gas guzzling cars, or people smoking cigarettes.


Within those seven years, extremes in rain fall, heat waves, and cold waves, extremes in famines, erupting volcanoes, earthquakes, huge hail storms, storms of enormous proportions, even islands disappearing into the ocean, will occur.


The human debate over what to do about it all will be irrelevant, as people's lives all over the world will be so disrupted, that they will probably not care about global warming or cooling, or anything else for that matter. Half of the population of the world will die during those seven years.


And, when the Second Advent occurs, then most of the other half will die instantly, leaving very few to go into the Millennium. And then, the world climate will change immediately into a perfect one.


God controls history. God controls the weather. God controls all natural events.


Prov. 30:4

4 Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name or His son's name? Surely you know! NASB


Isa. 40:12

12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, And marked off the heavens by the span, And calculated the dust of the earth by the measure, And weighed the mountains in a balance, And the hills in a pair of scales? NASB


Amos 4:7

7 'And furthermore, I withheld the rain from you While there were still three months until harvest. Then I would send rain on one city And on another city I would not send rain; One part would be rained on, While the part not rained on would dry up. NASB


In fact, God maintains control over just about everything.


Is it possible that studying Bible doctrine on a daily basis might be of some benefit?
