the weather Man
Job 38:28, “Who is the father of the dew and of the rain?” (Contemporary English Version). Contrary to what the new agers and most meteorologists believe, there is no such person as mother nature. We have a Father of nature, Yahweh, the Mighty One of Israel. You may have noticed over the last few years that we have experienced some extreme weather. Job 37:9-13, “From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind, and cold from the scattering winds of the north. 10By the breath of Yahweh ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen. 11Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; He scatters His bright clouds. 12And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance, that they may do whatever He commands them on the face of the whole earth. 13He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for His land, or for mercy.” Notice that Yahweh controls all weather, for His purposes. Notice that one of those purposes is for correction of mankind. Humans have been rejecting and despising Yahweh for about 6,000 years now. Yahweh is ready to end the ages of human ways and establish His Kingdom on this planet. Yahweh had to wipe out all but eight humans in Noah’s day, and Yeshua said the end times will be like it was in Noah’s day. But humans still don’t get it, that we should repent of our sins and turn to Yahweh for healing and salvation. We just don’t realize all the weapons Yahweh has in His arsenal for use in correcting His children. Yahweh blesses us with rain, snow, and sunshine, but we continue to spit in His face in rebellion. Yahweh’s love and mercy is unending, but His longsuffering is about stretched to unbearable limits. He is beginning to punish wicked men with storms, floods, pestilence, and famine. It will get worse before it gets better. Jeremiah 23:19, “Behold, a whirlwind of Yahweh has gone forth in fury—a violent whirlwind! It will fall violently on the head of the wicked.” Jeremiah 30:23-24, “Behold, the whirlwind of Yahweh goes forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind; it will fall violently on the head of the wicked. 24The fierce anger of Yahweh will not return until He has done it, and until He has performed the intents of His heart. In the latter days you will consider it.” It is true that Yahweh dealt with sin at the execution stake of Yeshua, but we must be continually washed in the blood of Yeshua. With every breath we must breath Yahweh into our life and exhale sin out of our life. Yahweh is still angry with sin, because there are still sinners committing sin! The age of committing sin is over. Notice Jeremiah’s phrase, in the latter days you will consider it. Those days are here today, now. It’s time to consider our evil ways, repent, and turn to Yahweh. It’s time to consider His anger, which will result in His wrath being poured out in these last days. Time’s up, the Weather Man cometh.
Judgment Day will include many punishments upon mankind, including drought and mildew. Deuteronomy 28:22, “Yahweh will strike you with consumption, with fever, with inflammation, with severe burning fever, with the sword, with scorching, and with mildew; they shall pursue you until you perish.” Men will scoff, but Yahweh will bring all humans to their knees before Him. Deuteronomy 11:17, “lest Yahweh’s anger be aroused against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and you perish quickly from the good land which Yahweh is giving you.” Folks wonder how it can flood in the Mississippi basin while at the same moment Texas burns from border to border. The new bumper sticker: It’s the Weather Man, stupid. Amos 4:7, “I also withheld rain from you, when there were still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city. One part was rained upon, and where it did not rain the part withered.” Our Father of nature does this, not the adult fantasy called mother nature. You need to know Him, not her. She’s a figment of your depraved imagination.
Yahweh is so great and in such total control, that He has to give Satan permission to use weather to hurt people. Job 1:6-12, 18-19, “Now there was a day when the sons of Yahweh came to present themselves before Yahweh, and Satan also came among them. 7And Yahweh said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered Yahweh and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.” 8Then Yahweh said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears Yahweh and shuns evil?” 9So Satan answered Yahweh and said, “Does Job fear Yahweh for nothing? 10Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11But now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!” 12And Yahweh said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person.” So Satan went out from the presence of Yahweh. . . 18While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, 19and suddenly a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people, and they are dead; and I alone have escaped to tell you!”” Satan has a little power, but he’s on a short leash. Satan’s most deadly power is the power of spiritual deception, 2 Corinthians 4:4, “whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Messiah, who is the image of Yahweh, should shine on them.” You must stay in the written Word and in the Holy Spirit to endure to the end of the Great Tribulation. Slap yourself, you haven’t been raptured yet.
This severe weather is simply Yahweh’s warning to the nations. Yahweh is not picking on individuals, though we all need to repent in dust and ashes and turn to Him. We are all equal sinners before Yahweh, Luke 13:5, “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” All earthly nations and kingdoms are coming down, to make way for Yahweh’s kingdom, to be ruled by Yeshua from Jerusalem. Prepare as much as you can physically for the severe conditions coming on the whole world, but more important, prepare spiritually to meet your Weather Man face to face. Revelation 6:5-8, “When He opened the third seal (hyper-inflation), I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” 7When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.” Revelation 8:4-12, “And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before Yahweh from the angel’s hand. 5Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake. 6So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 7The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up. 8Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. 10Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter. 12Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.” Disobedient mankind, you have some nasty natural judgments to look forward to. Fall on your knees and repent of your sins today. Time’s up, the Weather Man has spoken His weather report, which summed up says, the perfect storm is coming, fire and brimstone.
Fear not the weather that is upon us now or the judgments that are coming, fear Him Who controls it all. Matthew 10:28, “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” It’s time to make your decision. Will you obey Him, or will you continue to reject Him and disobey His commands? Leviticus 26:3-4, “If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them, 4then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.” He loves you, but He is the perfect Father, and He knows how to discipline His children. At any given moment, you are only one heartbeat, one breath, away from your eternal destiny. Repent now.
What’s the weather report in your heart?
