14 Hearken ['azan] unto this, O Job ['Iyowb]: stand still [`amad], and
consider [biyn] the wondrous [pala'] works of God ['el]. KJV-Interlinear
14 'Listen to this, O Job, Stand
and consider the wonders of God. NASB
The weather, storms, disasters from the climate such
as floods or famines, are common the world over. And as such, everyone who has ever lived on
this planet, can have reality examples of Gods blessing and cursing.
But, in order to understand this principle, you have
to sit back and ponder the many activities of nature in order to understand
Like our daily lives, the weather is continuous,
fluid, and repetitive. Sometimes it
continues in the same fashion for days and weeks. Sometimes there are storm exceptions. And always there are the four seasons which

their rejection or indifference toward Christ.
And that makes them all, false.
