Watering the Garden

(God speaking to Job) Hast thou entered into the treasures of snow? Or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war? (Job 38:22-23)

And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. (Exodus 9:23)

And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword. (Joshua 10:11)

And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. (Isaiah 30:30)

Say unto them, which daub it with untempered morter that it shall fall; there shall be an overflowing shower: and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall: and a stormy wind shall rend it. (Ezekiel 13:11)

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD: I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury: and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it. (Ezekiel 13:13)

And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood: and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, and overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. (Ezekiel 38:22)

Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. The seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (Revelation 16:15-21)

Job mentions that hail is reserved for the time of trouble to come. We find in the scriptures that hailstones were used by the LORD in the past through Moses against the enemies of Israel and in Joshua’s time where more of the enemy was destroyed by the hailstones than in the battle.

Hailstones are also prophesied to be used in the future during the battle of Armageddon when the seventh angel’s vial is poured out. The weight of a talent I have been told could be as much as 180 pounds.

We have learned that hail was used by God in the Old Testament against the enemies of God and will be used in the future at the battle of Armageddon.

Our Father appreciates the fact that you are trying. May God’s blessing be upon this
study of His word, Amen.
