Who’s Behind The Weather? The Supernatural

Revelation 7

The fundamental need of our world today is a rebirth of belief in the supernatural.

Arnold Toynbee

The current age is dominate mainly by reliance only on what can be seen and tested. We live in a time of rank materialism, which essentially dismisses the spiritual and argues that all life movements result from material interactions.

For example, if one were to ask what controls the wind, most people would probably answer it has to do with the relationship between earth and the sun, temperature, and pressure imbalances. There are few people that think of God as the winds cause or it’s lack thereof. But, if we look at Revelation 7:1-3 in says

‘Then I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds so they did not blow on the earth or the sea, or even on any tree. And I saw another angel coming up from the east, carrying the seal of the living God. And He shouted to those four angels, who had been given power to harm land and sea, Wait! Don’t harm the land or the sea or the trees until we have placed the seal of God on the foreheads of His servants.”

In these scriptures the Bible says God employs His angels to restrain the winds to accomplish a specific purpose. The wind belongs to God. The winds are under His control and subordinate to His Will. It’s not so much what’s behind the winds and storms; it’s who.

In the Old Testament it often pictures the winds as God’s agents employed in His acts of judgment.

Zachariah 6:1-5 says, “Again I lifted my eyes, and saw, and behold, four chariots came our from between who mountains; and the mountains were mountains of bronze. In the first chariot we’re red horses; in the second chariot black horses; In the thirst chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot dappled horses, all of them powerful. Then I asked the angel who talked with me, ‘What are these, my Lord?’ The angel answered me, ‘These are the four winds of the sky, which go out from the standing before the Lord of all the earth.”

Zahum 1:3, speaks to the Lord who has His way in the world wind and the storm.

Jeremiah 4:13 says, God comes with His chariots like a whirlwind.

In Isaiah 66:15, Chariots we’re used for warfare and judgment on one’s enemies. The wind the breath of God (Job 37:9-10). The wind tends the mountains (1Kings 19:11) and withers the grass (Isaiah 40:7,24). and dries up the stream, the river and the sea (Nahum 1:4; Psalm 18:15). God’s day (Judgement day) would be the day of the whirlwind (Amos 1:14). The whirlwind of God goes forth in its fury and falls on the head of the wicked.

Other scriptures provide a window for looking inside God’s pilot house, not only the winds but weather in general.

Look at what happened in Exodus, and the seven plagues. Did the earth, sun, and air pressure and temperature cause this, if you think about it it couldn’t have
