According to the Book of Revelations the 16th chapter, verses 17-21, there will be flashes of lightning, earthquakes, and thunders. And in verse 21, God will cause a huge hailstorm to fall from heaven about the 100 hundred pounds each and kill mankind as they curse him out during the process. This is surely what can be referred to as ‘death by hail’.
Hail usually falls in the spring or summer during severe thunder storms. Hailstones are made up of alternate layers of ice and snow, and sometimes reach considerable size, causing great damage by their fall. Upward currents of air carry up raindrops already formed to the colder regions above, where they freeze, and as they again pass through layers of cloud, their bulk increases until, too heavy to be carried by the current, they fall to the ground. Hailstorms, like thunder storms, occur in narrow belts a few miles in breadth and are of short duration. Almost without exception they occur in the daytime. If they take place before the time of harvest they do great damage to grain and fruit, and in extreme cases have injured property and endangered life
What The Bible Says About Hailstorms
As we watch the weather news we can clearly see the events leading to what God will do in the future as he has been known to stone people to death in Egypt according to the Bible.
Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause very heavy hail to rain down, such as has not been in Egypt since its founding until now Exodus 8:18 NKJV And Moses stretched out his rod toward heaven; and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and fire darted to the ground. And the Lord rained hail on the land of Egypt. Exodus 9:23 NKJV
Despite what meteorologists claim as being “Mother Nature”, you can see from scripture, this is caused by God. It’s funny that the only time mankind acknowledges the “act of God” is on insurance claims.
The plague of hail (Exodus 9:23-24; Psalms 78:47), which was a local storm, as they usually are, falling on the Egyptians and not striking the children of Israel in Goshen. It was of great severity. “There was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation” (Exodus 9:24). It took place in January, for the barley “was in the ear, and the flax was in bloom” (Exodus 9:31), and caused great damage.

Hail is often spoken of as a means of punishing the wicked:
“As a tempest of hail …. will he cast down” (Isaiah 28:2); “The hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies” (Isaiah 28:17); and as symbols of God’s anger: “I will rain …. great hailstones, fire, and brimstone” (Ezekiel 38:22); “There shall be …. great hailstones in wrath to consume it” (Ezekiel 13:13; compare Isaiah 30:30; Haggai 2:17; Revelation 8:7; 11:19; 16:21).
If you want to keep up with bible prophecy, watch the weather. Weather plays a major role in the end time. God will use weather to judge mankind to show He is God of all of the elements not “Mother Nature” as meteorologists claim.
