The Biblical Teaching on Snow, and Why it Matters
All that changed when God sent a flood to earth to judge human and angelic wickedness (see Genesis 6:1–8). The rest, as they say, is history. Or more biblically, the four seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter were introduced to bring about redemptive history.
In the beginning, there was water but not snow. On the second day God separated the waters in the sky from the waters on the earth; on the third day he gathered the waters on the earth, forming the dry ground. In Genesis 2, we learn “mist was going up from the land watering the whole face of the ground” and “a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there is divided and became four rivers”. So before Adam sinned and God subjected the earth to futility, the had plenty of water, but no subzero temperatures to create ice crystals and snow squalls.
Winter is a God given time of rest. A chance to hit pause and reflect on what He is doing in our lives. Because no matter what the season is, God still has a lot to say to us. In theses Bible Verses about Winter that will Set your Soul on Fire, we can read what the Ancient of Days is up to while the weather outside is a mix of rain, ice, and snow. Together, let’s allow His Word to warm our hearts and light a blaze within us.
There are more than two dozen Bible verses that reference snow. And they’re actually all great. The Book of Job is full of them, as are the Psalms. But here are six of the best Bible verses about snow:
Psalm 51:1-19 ESV
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Isaiah 2:1-22 ESV
The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it, and many peoples shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the Lord.
Isaiah 55:10-12 ESV
“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. “For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
