Devotional on Snow 01-16-2022 NKJV uses the word “snow” 25 times

Job 38:22

“Have you entered the treasury of snow, or have you seen the treasury of hail,

 

Psalm 147:16

He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes;

Daniel 7:9

“I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire;

Matthew 28:3

His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.

Mark 9:3

His clothes became shining, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth can whiten them.

Revelation 1:14

His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire

Isaiah 55:10

“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, And bread to the eater,

So shall My Word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

THIS PASSAGE TEACHES THAT SNOW ILLUSTRATES FORGIVENESS AND THE   COVERING UP THAT WHICH IS DIRTY AND UGLY.

            > Yards and pastures with dry, brown and short grass aren’t very pretty to view.

            > Trees with all the leaves gone aren’t very pretty to view.

                        But once a blanket of snow covers them, the yards, pastures and trees are  extremely beautiful.

            > Trash piles, wrecked vehicles, abandoned houses, muddy roads are not things  enjoyable to look at,                              but once they are covered with a blanket of snow,  you forget their ugliness and disgusting                                      appearance.

Isaiah 51:7

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

            From Psalm 51:7, most bible students, agree that David is pleading with God to  forgive him of the sin

           he  committed when he committed adultery with Bathsheba.

Psalm 51:7 teaches us that David knew that God could cover up his ugliness to the extent that snow covers
           up things that are ugly.

However, Psalm 51:1-4, teaches us that David had failed miserably to try, on his   own, to cover up his sins.                     David’s sins were eating at his heart and soul.         

                    1 Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness;
                      According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions.
                   2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
                   3 For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.
                   4 Against You, you only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight—
                      That You may be found just when You speak, and blameless when You judge.

(3) What about you? What about me? Is there sin in my life that I have tried to cover up on my own? Does my conscience bother me? Is the Holy Spirit convicting me?

Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, and let us reason together” says the Lord,
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;

Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
