An amazing biblical anticipation of scientific discovery, seen in the book of Job, is the description of the process of rainfall. The process of rainfall from clouds, the coalescing of small drops of water vapor into larger drops of liquid water to eventually fall as rain was not understood in ancient times as it is today. Yet Job 36:27-28 says, “For he maketh small the drops of water; they pour down rain according to the vapor thereof; which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.”
Henry Morris describes how drops of rain are “made small” as they start off within the clouds too small to fall to earth and eventually coalesce into drops heavy enough to fall to earth despite the updrafts of air. How are clouds kept aloft? Modern science has discovered that small drops of water in the clouds are kept aloft by the updrafts of air. The downward force of gravity is balanced by the upward force of the air at this point. What does the Bible say? “He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them” (Job 26:8). “Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds?” (Job 37:16). Another verse in that same chapter says, “By watering he wearieth the thick cloud” (Job 37:11).
These processes were only fully understood scientifically about 300 years ago. The Bible writers were not scientists or meteorologists. How could they have described this process of rainfall so accurately, unless the Creator gave them the information? See Chapter 2 of The Bible Can Be Proven for more examples of scientific foreknowledge in the Scriptures.
