Daily Tidbits 12/14/11 – Snow & the Word

Snow is likened unto the Word of God.
Isa 55:10  For as the rain and the snow comes down from the heavens and do not return there, except it waters the earth and make it bring forth and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
Isa 55:11  so shall My Word be, which goes out of My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in what I sent it to do!

Snow is also linked to His Word in numerous places in Scripture.
Psa 147:15  He sends His command out on the earth; His Word runs very swiftly;
Psa 147:16  He gives snow like wool; He scatters the white frost like ashes;

Job 37:5  God thunders wondrously with His voice; He does great things, and we do not know.
Job 37:6  For He says to the snow, Fall on the earth; also to the shower of rain, and the shower of heavy rains.

Psa 148:8  fire and hail, snow and smoke, stormy wind fulfilling His Word,

Job 37:10  Ice is given by God’s breath, and the expanse of waters is frozen.

The word for white frost/hoar frost in Psalm 147:16 is כפור ‘kaphor.’


from the root:

Who is our atonement?  Messiah Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21; Leviticus 16:2; Hebrews 9:7-8, 12-14).

Hoar frost is further linked to the word through the manna given to Israel in the wilderness.

Exo 16:13  And it happened in the evening: the quail came up and covered the camp. And in the morning a layer of dew was around the camp.
Exo 16:14  And the layer of dew went up, and, behold, something small was on the face of the wilderness, scalelike, small like the hoarfrost (כפור ‘kaphor’)on the earth.
Exo 16:15  And the sons of Israel looked. And they said, each one to his brother, What is that? For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, That is the bread which Jehovah has given to you for food.

Snow is linked to forgiveness.
Psa 51:7  Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Isa 1:16  Wash yourselves, purify yourselves. Put away the evil of your doings from My sight; stop doing evil.
Isa 1:17  Learn to do good, seek justice, straighten the oppressor, judge the orphan, strive for the widow.
Isa 1:18  Come now and let us reason together, says Jehovah: Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as the crimson, they shall be like wool.

The manna in the wilderness is a picture of Messiah.
