Job 37:13



13 He causeth it to come [matsa'], whether for correction [shebet], or for his land ['erets], or for mercy [checed]. KJV-Interlinear



13 'Whether for correction, or for His world, Or for lovingkindness, He causes it to happen. NASB



Weather conditions are used by God to inflict punishment, correction, judgment, or blessing.


Correction denotes the first three of these purposes and lovingkindness or mercy denotes blessing.


The third aspect of weather application on the earth is for 'His world,' for 'His land.' This denotes Gods use of weather for the cultivation of His plan through history.


God does not drop down on the earth and plant corn or rice. The term, world or land, is all-inclusive and refers to the entirety of planet earth - its use and its function. And planet earths function is to be the stage for the history of the human race.


Rain provides water for crops, for drinking, for the shaking out of the leaves in the autumn trees, for pollination and so forth. The rain is used in floods and heavy cleansing of the earth. The rain is used to filter the air and cool the planet. The uses of rain and stormy weather are many and varied.


But none of them are haphazard or functions of chance.


As we mentioned yesterday. God uses weather or modifies weather in accordance with mans spiritual state.


A spiritually strong population receives great weather. A spiritually deficient population receives bad weather. A spiritually indifferent or spiritually mixed population may well receive a variety of weather patterns. And that, is pretty much how history has ben reflected from the point of view from weather.


As the weather patterns have seemingly grown worse and worse throughout the centuries, even though weather has fluctuated both up and down at times, the trends have been toward the worsening of weather.


The worst will not occur until the Tribulation, but that does no prevent God from giving us many examples of just how bad weather can be, from time to time.


Anyway, the point of all of this is to understand the principle that Jesus Christ controls history. Christ controls all aspects of history, even while allowing you to think freely and do as you please. Your actions will never alter Gods overall plan. In fact, all of the actions of humanity were incorporated into Gods plan, the Divine Decrees, in eternity past when they were established.


These three results of the use of weather, blessing, punishment, and choreography of history, are just an example of Gods use of nearly every aspect of life for human history. In everything, we can see Gods intended purpose, and those three concepts are the very broad applications of Gods will.
