Job 37:9-13 (King James Version)
9Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.
10By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.(frozen)
11Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:(lightning)
12And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.
13He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.
Job 37:9-13 (New Living Translation)
9 The stormy wind comes from its chamber,
and the driving winds bring the cold.
10 God’s breath sends the ice,
freezing wide expanses of water.
11 He loads the clouds with moisture,
and they flash with his lightning.
12 The clouds churn about at his direction.
They do whatever he commands throughout the earth.
13 He makes these things happen either to punish people
or to show his unfailing love.
For those who are questioning what is happening to the United States with environmental disasters, and storms and floodings and loss of property and life, read what God says will happen to those countries which come against Israel, His Beloved. Genesis 12:3 states that God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who come against Israel. Jeremiah 18:7-10 God states He will repent of any good He had towards a nation if it turns against Him and does not obey His voice.
We are in critical times concerning our nation and we need to pray for God’s mercy.
In His Love,
AMENPraying with you,andrea
