    What is the North Wind?

    According to the bible, the North Wind was mentioned several times. I need to know exactly where I can find the scriptures for it and its context. I do know Revelations, I believe should be a good starting point. Please do give any and all relative information for it. Thanks so very much.

    North Wind only appears in the Old Testament
    The Latin, Greek and English transliteration of the Torah used the words correctly in some places and in other places they translated the same word to mean something else.

    Hebrews never used abstract words, i.e. "blessed" "belief" etc.
    Hebrews used words you could grasp with the five (5) senses. i.e. bosom, house etc
    The "wind" is speaking of the spirit, ours or others or God's.
    The "North" is a description that can be grasped with the five senses, and is used for the word "Hidden"
    So therefore "Hidden Spirit"

    The most popular use of the term "North Wind" in literature is not from the Bible but from the writings of the late 19th century Scottish Presbyterian minister, George MacDonald. It stems mostly from his book, At The Back Of The North Wind.
    George MacDonald's writings are said to have had a significant impact on one of the greatest writers, philosophers and Christian Apologists of the 20th century, C.S. Lewis, friend of J.R.R. Tolkien and author of the Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity and, of course, The Chronicles of Narnia which contain The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe.
    The North Wind has strong roots in Norse mythology, Lewis claimed the term suggests the idea of the "numinous" or the awe inspiring presence of the Creator in nature. In his book Surprised by Joy, he credits MacDonald's writings with opening up his mind to the idea of God while Lewis was an atheist.
