The Unique Powers of God and His Word


     According to Psalm 147:15-18, the word of God governs nature in several unique ways.  Here, it is written, “He sends out His command to the earth; His word runs very swiftly.  He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes; He casts out His hail like morsels; who can stand before His cold?  He sends out His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.”

     Jehovah gives snow like wool, scatters frost like ashes, casts out hail like morsels.  What striking similes.

     His swiftly running word causes water to change its state from a visible solid to a liquid.

     He is the same Being Who “declared His word to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments to Israel” (Psalm 147:19).

     He is the same Being Who sent His only begotten Son into this world of snow, frost, and hail and declared on the Mount of Transfiguration “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” (Matthew 17:5).

     His Son is the mediator of the new covenant, “See that you do not refuse Him who speaks” (Hebrews 13:5).
