In an embarrassing revelation of my age and generation, I waited for the “punch line” finale in the video but in the end, I don’t get it. I am old.

Shamaylan’s most famous movie (The Sixth Sense) has a twist at the end where you find out that the main character of the movie has been dead since about 5 minutes into it… (which was the reference at the end of the clip) Since then, almost all of his movies have tried to duplicate that moment, with degenerating degrees of success…

I may be a little slow here, but i just discovered a new commentary series on the market that may be of interest. I enjoy reading commentaries, so I will look forward to acquiring these volumes at some point.

Hippo/Africa Bible Commentary Series

Has anyone read any of these volumes?

Can Satan affect the weather?

Job 1

12Then the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.” So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD.

19and behold, a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people and they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

So, I guess Satan was directly responsible for that wind.

But even by today’s technology we could cause enough “wind” to blow a house down, but does Satan have enough power to create a whole tempest at sea?

I don’t think I’d say I think Satan controls the weather. One idea that comes into play in the OT (and in the NT partly, as well) is that all these forces on earth are under the care of other spiritual beings. Not in a henotheistic way, but in the sense that they are “officers” under God’s authority. Like roque soldiers, these beings, or entities, have rebelled, and are now in a state of chaos. So God is in the business of bringing order to this chaos. This is why was such a big deal when Jesus calmed the storm. For Him to be able to bring order to this situation is tapping into the Creation narrative where Yahweh started bringing the universe into order from chaos.
