Supernatural Facts of the Bible proving the scriptures were God inspired
Isaiah 55:10; “the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth.” Isaiah spoke of the cycle of water 2500 years before man was aware of it. We are told that precipitation watered the earth.
Ecclesiastes 1:7; “All the rivers run into the sea. Yet the sea is not full; To the place from which the rivers come, There they return again.” The Mississippi alone dumps approximately 518 billion gallons of water into the gulf of Mexico. The Bible explains that the waters run to the oceans and then through evaporation and precipitation returned to where it started.
Job 36:27-28 “He draws up the drops of water which distill as rain to the streams; the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind.” The Bible tells us how moisture is drawn up through evaporation and then falls as rain upon the earth.
Amos 9:6 “he calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out over the face of the land.” The world’s scientific minds did not understand that there was a continuous cycle of water or how it operated until the seventeenth century.
Job 28:24-26 “For He looks to the ends of the earth, And sees under the whole heavens, To establish a weight for the wind, And apportion the waters by measure. When He made a law for the rain, And a path for the thunderbolt,” Meteorologists have found that the relative weights of the wind and water greatly determine the weather patterns. Job spoke of this 3000 years ago, a fact that scientists have only determined in the last century. The fact that so much water covers the earth means that the effects of the sun and moon’s gravity are perfectly balanced.
Psalm 19:6 “it’s (the sun) going forth is from the end of the heavens, And its circuit unto the ends of it; And there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.” (ASV) Man has always thought that the sun was stationary. However, it has been discovered in recent years that the sun is in fact moving through space at approximately 600,000 miles per hour. It is traveling through the heavens and has a “circuit” just as the Bible says. Its circuit is so large it would take approximately 200 million years to complete one orbit.
