Test Your Bible Power

Test Yor Bible Power

As winter storms blow, we are reminded that it is God who "spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes" (Ps. 147:16). The Bible makes clear that God uses weather and other forces of nature to accomplish his purposes, in blessing and in judgment. "He brings the clouds to punish men, or to water his earth and show his love" (Job 37:13). Test your knowledge of these forces of nature that are found in Scripture. The questions get increasingly more difficult as you go along.

    C. a hurricane

  4. When Korah, Dathan, and Abiram challenged Moses and Aaron, God used this as a means to punish the three men:
