Snow In The Bible

light-in-snow-treeJonathan has a cool (pun intended) post about what we can learn from snow in the Bible.  I’ll copy it for you here, but be sure to visit Jonathan’s blog, The  Fool’s Gold, for more cool stuff.  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…

  1. “This is a day for valiant acts of faith.” – “And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was a valiant man of Kabzeel, a doer of great deeds. He struck down two heroes of Moab. He also went down and struck down a lion in a pit on a day when snow had fallen.” (1 Chronicles 11:22)
  2. “God is unspeakably powerful.” – “God thunders wonderfully with his voice; he does great things that we cannot comprehend. For to the snow he says, ‘Fall on the earth,’ likewise to the downpour, his mighty downpour.” (Job 37:5-6)
  3. “Be humbled, O man.” – “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war?” (Job 38:22-23)
  4. “God commanded me to fall.” – “He gives snow like wool; he scatters hoarfrost like ashes. He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs; who can stand before his cold?” (Psalm 147:16-17)
  5. “Praise the Lord!” – “Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all deeps, fire and hail, snow and mist, stormy wind fulfilling his word!” (Psalm 148:7-8)
  6. “Be a faithful servant in all of your roles.” – “Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest is a faithful messenger to those who send him; he refreshes the soul of his masters.” (Proverbs 25:13)
  7. “Seek wisdom with all of your heart.” – “Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, so honor is not fitting for a fool.” (Proverbs 26:1)
  8. “Take care of your family.” – “She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.” (Proverbs 31:21)
  9. “God will forgive your sins through Christ.” – “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18)
  10. “God’s word will accomplish all his purpose.” – “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:10-11)
  11. “This is what Jesus looks like.” – “As I looked, thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days took his seat; his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was fiery flames; its wheels were burning fire.” (Daniel 7:9) … “The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters.” (Revelation 1:14-15)
