Weather & Men Controlled by Satan

 

You may need to read the whole chapter, or more, to get the whole story of Job, but it can be seen by the following passage from the Bible's book of Job that the Devil has been given (at least to some extent) control over the weather. He caused a great wind to blow down the house that Job's children were in killing them and he even caused fire to come out of the sky.  All of this was blamed on God even though it can be seen from what is said below that all of this was actually caused by the Devil.

It can also be seen that the Devil is able to use evil humans to do whatever he wants, notice verses 15 & 17.  This is how he killed God's Son, by using evil men to do what it was that he wanted to do.

 

Job

1:12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath [is] in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.

1:13 And there was a day when his sons and his daughters [were] eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:

1:14 And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them:

1:15 And the Sabeans fell [upon them], and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

1:16 While he [was] yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

1:17 While he [was] yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

1:18 While he [was] yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters [were] eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:

1:19 And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
