The Winds of the World

As you are not doubt well aware, especially if you live on the Eastern side of the USA, a hurricane is just offshore and likely headed your way.

This brings us to the topic of today --- which is 'winds'

Did you know that thousands and thousands of years ago the Bible recorded the circulation pattern of the winds of the atmosphere?

Yes, 'tis true.  This is not a recent discovery; it has long been known to those who read the Bible.

Ecclesiastes 1:6 (KJV) states:  "The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to His circuits"

Hmm. And folks think that this scientific fact about the circulation pattern of the winds was something only recently discovered.

But, the Bible told about this millennia ago.

Furthermore, the Bible also tells us that 'wind has weight', a fact that has only recently been discovered, or should we say re-discovered since this was documented in the Book of Job.

The Biblical book of Job, thought to have been written about 4,000 years ago, states: "He (God) … seeth under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds." (Job 28:24-25. KJV)

Wow!  Imagine that!
