Weather predictions (especially those dealing with hurricanes and Nor’easters) show us just how fallible humans can be. You see, nature has its own way of doing things that often throw computers and forecasts into turmoil.
A tiny ‘wobble’ can make a huge difference in the amount of snow/ice/rain that affected areas undergo. Thankfully, it appears we may miss some of the greater snow totals predicted. Now, I enjoy the beauty of snow as much as anyone but I like it more around Christmas or New Year–not a week away from the first day of spring!!
Even forecasts in the Bible can sometimes be tricky to interpert. Revelation and Daniel are favored by many commentators who write loads of books trying decipher all the predictions of the end times.
Isaiah was a great prophet who was given the task of speaking and warning Israel during a time of upheaval. After being exiled to Babylon, God was about to restore their nation…but they needed some stern behavior reminders.
As much as the first chapter begins with warnings, the prophet gives us a verse that rings as true today as it did then and is something to be memorized. Isaiah 1:18-Come now, let us reason together saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow, though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Accepting Christ leaves God looking at us like fresh undisturbed snow…
Now THAT is a prediction you can stand on!
