God Said Man Said

Weight for the Winds

Itís common to think of air as weightless but the truth is quite surprising. A cubic foot of air actually weighs about one-tenth of a pound. The air in an average-sized room weighs up to several hundred pounds. Imagine this, the blanket of air above us delivers 2,100 pounds of weight to every square foot of space.

Weight for the Winds

Article#: 667

The Bible is the only religious book repleat with scientific truths, from the design of the earth and solar system and the creation of man out of dirt, to the description of the DNA code and so much more. Because it is God's word, it is truth. And it's not just science but all aspects of life socially and spiritually that are perfectly defined. For over 6,000 years Satan and carnal man have attempted to debunk the Bible, without success. Those who have attempted to debunk the Word of God have been found liars. Rest assured they will never succeed. The majority-text King James Bible is the inerrant word of the living God. Relax...it is the truth.

GOD SAID He made the weight for the winds. Job, Chapter 28, Verse 24-28:

24 For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;

25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.

26 When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:

27 Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.

28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

MAN SAID the Bible is void of supernatural origin because there is no God.

Now THE RECORD. The book of Job said God made the weight for the winds. If the air had no weight, the wind would have no force. It's common to think of air as weightless but the truth is quite surprising. A cubic foot of air actually weighs about one-tenth of a pound. The air in an average-sized room weighs up to several hundred pounds. Imagine this, the blanket of air above us delivers 2,100 pounds of weight to every square foot of space. If we were not "open systems," our human bodies would be crushed. An "open system" simply means because we breathe air in and out we maintain the same air pressure on the inside as exists on the outside. Consequently, our bodies are not crushed by the weight of the air.

Remember, if air had no weight, wind would be virtually nonexistent. Without wind the earth as we know it would not function. Without wind there would be no cleansing of the air allowing contaminants and poisons to destroy its breathability. Wind sweeps the pollutants away as it dilutes and disperses them. The wind is a major force in the evaporation process. It blows over the waters and the trees, etc., and carries the water vapor into the clouds and distributes moisture to the ends of the earth. The wind also creates the movement of the weather. Wind causes rivers to flow and creates the waves of the sea which help cleanse the waters. It prunes the trees of dead leaves and branches and performs a myriad of other things we are aware and unaware of.

Thank God that He created weight for the wind because without it, life as we know it, could not exist.

GOD SAID He made the weight for the wind long before man understood how and why.

MAN SAID the Bible is void of supernatural origin because there is no God.

Now you have THE RECORD.
