Frost is the formation of a thin layer of ice crystals on a cold surface. Frost is a well-known seasonal sight in some areas of the Bible lands (see Bible Places), where its occurrence is often affected by topography (i.e. surface elevation) - frost is rare in the lower areas of The Jordan Valley, while more common in relatively-near higher elevations, such as where Jerusalem is located.

Frost In The Bible

Frost Frost is created by the Creator's laws of nature (see The First Scientist):

"Has the rain a father, or who has begotten the drops of dew? From whose womb did the ice come forth, and who has given birth to the hoarfrost of heaven? The waters become hard like stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades, or loose the cords of Orion? [see Your Very Own Time Machine]" (Job 38:28-31 RSV)

"He sends forth His command to the earth; His word runs swiftly. He gives snow like wool; He scatters hoarfrost like ashes. He casts forth His ice like morsels; who can stand before His cold? He sends forth His word, and melts them; He makes His wind blow, and the waters flow." (Psalm 147:15-18 RSV)

Manna appeared as frost:

"And when the dew had gone up, there was on the face of the wilderness a fine, flake-like thing, fine as hoarfrost on the ground. When the people of Israel saw it, they said to one another, "What is it?" For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, "It is the bread which The Lord has given you to eat." (Exodus 16:14-15 RSV) (see What Was Manna?)

"Nature" will be "adjusted" after The Return Of Jesus Christ:

"For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city."

"Then The Lord will go forth and fight against those nations as when He fights on a day of battle. On that day His feet shall stand on The Mount Of Olives which lies before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two [see Earthquake!] from east to west by a very wide valley; so that one half of the Mount shall withdraw northward, and the other half southward. And the valley of my mountains shall be stopped up, for the valley of the mountains shall touch the side of it; and you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then The Lord your God will come, and all the holy ones with Him.

"On that day there shall be neither cold nor frost. And there shall be continuous day, it is known to The Lord, not day and not night, for at evening time there shall be light."

"On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea [i.e. The Salt Sea] and half of them to the western sea [i.e. The Mediterranean Sea]; it shall continue in summer as in winter."

"And The Lord will become King over all the earth; on that day The Lord will be one and His Name one." (Zechariah 14:2-9 RSV)
