The Hydrologic Cycle – No Surprise to God

Hydrologic Cycle

The water in oceans, lakes, and rivers got there because of rain and snow … which came from evaporated moisture from those same oceans, rivers, and lakes. Thus we have a Hydrologic Cycle.

Wind patterns

Only recently did man discover that the wind actually moves in large circular patterns on the globe, allowing evaporation and the Hydrologic Cycle to take place.

The Bible describes the Hydrologic Cycle:

“The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.”  Ecclesiastes 1:6-7

This verse, which very accurately describes the Hydrologic Cycle and the global wind patterns, was written by Solomon in 935 B.C. Other passages dealing with aspects of the Hydrologic Cycle can be found in Job 36:27-28, Psalms 135:7, Jeremiah 10:13, Isaiah 55:10 and Ecclesiastes 1:6.

Once again the Bible reveals a great deal of scientific truth written hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of years before being “discovered” by modern scientists.
