Is there a way to prove the Bible? With many accusations of error and contradiction thrown at the Bible how can we know it is a trustworthy source of information? There are many good reasons to have complete confidence in the reliability of the Bible. Many people are unaware that the Scriptures can be verified very precisely and instead accept claims by people who themselves have rejected belief in God anyway. We have popular authors like Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking who are very vocal with their beliefs that belief in the God of the Bible is foolish and ignorant. Their views are particularly prominent and aggressive in the UK. However, there is a way to verify and prove the Bible is accurate without doubt.
A simple observation of the incredible world around us should be ample evidence that there is a designer. The staggering complexity and the wonders of the universe especially the existence of life on our planet our human bodies provide overwhelming evidence for our maker. It is illogical and inconceivable that life on this planet arose as a result of a huge cosmic accident. Nonetheless, the theory of evolution is accepted by many as an explanation of our origins so we do not use this to prove the Bible.
Around the world, archaeological discoveries are consistently unearthed that demonstrate the historical accuracy of the Bible. New evidence is found frequently but this is rarely covered in the media. There are many accounts of people coming to faith in the God of the Bible directly as a result of discovering the historic precision in the Bible. Even with this overwhelming evidence, there is still something more conclusive that does prove the Bible. This comes in the form of prophecy!
The prophetic portions of the Bible provide indisputable proof that its writings have an origin OUTSIDE our time domain. If there is a God who created time, He would also exist outside of time and would therefore know the end from the beginning. He would demonstrate this by telling us of events before they happen in the form of prophecy. God would use prophecy to validate his message to us as having come from Him. This is true of the God of the Bible which contains over 8000 prophetic verses. Over 20% of the Bible is prophecy and therefore God clearly intended us to take prophecy seriously. The Bible is the only book in the world that contains clear predictions concerning the future that have undeniably been fulfilled. This speaks volumes as to where the truth exists! In a society that often ridicules and attacks the Bible, the majority are unaware the Bible contains these astounding prophecies which authenticate its reliability and leave us with no excuse for not taking its Words seriously!
Approximately two thirds of Bible prophecies have already been fulfilled. Understanding just some of these and seeing how they have been dramatically fulfilled gives us complete trust in the Bible and the confidence that future, as yet unfulfilled prophecy, will happen just as predicted. We cover just a selection here to demonstrate how accurate these are – some of these are very simple and others cover people or nations over a longer period of time.
Prophecies concerning Jesus Christ
In the first coming of Jesus, experts say that around 300 Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled. The odds of one person fulfilling just 8 of these prophecies in a lifetime could be estimated at 1 in 1017, that is 100,000,000,000,000,000 to 1. If we make this 48 prophecies that now pushes the odds to 1 in 10157 [ref].
With just the prophecies of Jesus Christ alone the odds of these being fulfilled is simply impossible unless there is a God, outside of time, who has revealed this to us through His Word so we can trust Him. This on its own is a breathtaking confirmation of the reliability of the Bible.
Jesus will be born in Bethlehem
700 years before the event, the prophet Micah prophesied Jesus would be born in Bethlehem. Matthew 2:1 and John 7:42 are the New Testament references concerning this.
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting (Micah 5:2)
Jesus would enter Jerusalem while riding on a donkey
Zechariah details that the Messiah would enter Jerusalem while riding on a donkey which is fulfilled in Matthew 21:1-6.
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. (Zechariah 9:9)
Jesus would be betrayed by a friend
Jesus was betrayed by His disciple Judas Iscariot described in John 13:26.
Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. (Psalm 41:9)
Jesus will be sold for 30 pieces of silver
Zechariah prophesied Jesus will be sold for 30 pieces of silver which is used to buy a potter’s field. The description of fulfillment in the New Testament is in Matthew 26:14-15, 27:9-10.
And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord. (Zechariah 11:12-13)
Jesus’ hand and feet will be pierced
King David prophesied in Psalms 22 that Jesus would be beaten, tortured and his hands and feet would be pierced. This was prophesied over 800 years before this method of execution was even know, fulfilled in 32 AD.
For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. (Psalm 22:16)
God’s servant would be silent before his accusers
Even when Jesus was on trial, when anyone else would defend the truth, he kept silent just as Isaiah predicted, fulfilled in Matthew 27:12-14.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. (Isaiah 53:7)
No bones will be broken
During usual crucifixions the persons legs would be broken to speed up death but as predicted this didn’t happen to Jesus as fulfilled in John 19:32-33.
He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken (Psalm 34:20)
Death in the company of transgressors
Isaiah prophesied that Jesus would die with sinners as fulfilled in Mark 15:27-28.
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. (Isaiah 53:12)
A few more prophecies about Jesus Christ’s first coming
- Jesus to come from the line of David (2 Samuel 7:12a, fulfilled Matthew 1:1-16)
- Messenger to prepare the way for the Messiah (Malachi 3:1a, fulfilled Matthew 11:7-10)
- Born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14, fulfilled Luke 1:26-35)
- Jesus to be hated without a cause (Psalm 69:4a, fulfilled John 15:25)
- Soldiers to gamble for His clothes (Psalm 22:16-18, fulfilled Matthew 27:35-36)
- Accused by false witnesses (Psalm 35:19, fulfilled Mark 14:57-58)
- Jesus to be rejected (Psalm 118:22a, fulfilled John 1:11-12)
- Jesus to be killed (Daniel 9:26a, fulfilled Matthew 27:50)
- Buried with the rich (Isaiah 53:9, fulfilled Matthew 27:57-60)
- Forsaken by His disciples (Zechariah 13:7, fulfilled Mark 14:50)
The “Daniel 70 weeks” prophecy
Many prophetic passages in Scripture are very precise, but the fulfillment of Daniel 9:24-27, particularly with regard to the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem provides no margin of error and was fulfilled to the very day! We would argue that the fulfillment of this prophecy alone verifies the God of the Bible as the true God who has revealed Himself to humanity.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (Daniel 9:24-27, emphasis added)
A “week” of years is a common Hebrew idiom to refer to a period of seven years (in much the same way that we would refer to a “fortnight” as referring to a period of 14 days). It is also important to recognize that the length of both the Hebrew and Babylonian years were 360 years in duration. The bold text in the above passage is a mathematical prophecy: we are told the length of time between the command to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the “Messiah, the Prince” would be a period of 69 “weeks” which equates to 173,880 days. The command to restore and rebuild Jerusalem was given by Artaxerxes Longimanus on the 14th March 445 BC. When you count 173,880 days from this date and correct for leap days, you arrive at the 6th April 32 AD which is the precise day the Jesus present Himself as the Messiah, the King in the triumphal entry! This is staggering…having spent most of His ministry resisting being presented as the “Messiah, the King”, Jesus then carefully arranges this very event described in verse 25 on the very day predicted to declare that He was in fact the Saviour of the world! Chuck Missler describes this in more detail – The Precision of Prophecy – Daniels 70 Weeks and John MacArthur gives a short audio description of this prophecy – YouTube – Daniel 9 (interpreting Bible prophecy literally).
The text in verse 26 goes on tell us that the Messiah had to be “cut-off” before the destruction of the “city and the santuary” which occurred in 70 AD. This presents a real challenge to the Jews: the Hebrew prophet Daniel states that their Messiah would arrive before the destruction of the temple which occurred in 70 AD – who, then, can their Messiah be? Of course, it is none other than the Lord Jesus!
Prophecies concerning Israel
Those not familiar with the Bible will not understand Israel’s importance, their significance is covered in the Why Israel? article. One of the biggest phenomenons in history has been the survival of the Jewish people, they have suffered at the hands of many, with millions being killed but they have always managed to survive. Israel is the only nation in history that has been exiled from its land, lost its national existence and language, then to return to the same land and then become even more fruitful than before. God has made promises to the Jewish people and land Israel, His prophecies have been told to us and there is no better proof for the accuracy and divine authenticity of God’s Word than to look at Israel.
Israel will be dispersed into all nations
In 132 AD the Romans crushed the Bar-kokhba rebellion killing over 500,000 Jews, the remainder fled to other countries and Israel ceased from being a nation.
And they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries. But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations among the heathen whither they come; and they shall know that I am the Lord. (Ezekiel 12:15-16)
My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken unto him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations. (Hosea 9:17)
Israel will be re-established as a nation
Deuteronomy 29:22-28 describes the land of Israel would become desolate with no animals, plants or trees. This is exactly what happened during the 1816 year exile between AD 132 – 1948. A few verses later in Deuteronomy, we are told the exile would end and the Jews would be regathered from all nations:
And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath driven thee, And shalt return unto the Lord thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the Lord thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: And the Lord thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. (Deuteronomy 30:1-5)
Israel was reborn and re-established as a nation on 14th May 1948.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. (Isaiah 11:11)
And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. (Ezekiel 37:21-22)
Israel must regain the city of Jerusalem
Israel took control of Jerusalem in 1967 for the first time in over 2000 years. Many of the end-times prophecies describe events taking place to the Jews in the city of Jerusalem (Zechariah 12;3, Matthew 24, Revelation 11 etc.). It is therefore even more remarkable that Israel have been re-gathered, setting the stage for many of these prophecies that was not possible before this.
Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. (Ezekiel 22:19)
God will regather His people (the Jews)
In 1914 only 80,000 Jews in Israel, now over 5 million Jewish people have returned from exile and living in Israel.
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book. For, lo, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. (Jeremiah 30:1-5)
And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. (Isaiah 11:12)
And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. (Ezekiel 34:13)
The Shekel will be revived as Israeli currency
The Israeli Shekel was reinstated in 1980.
And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh. (Ezekiel 45:12)
Israel would have a supernatural power in times of conflict
Here are some examples where Israel has come under attack. Consider how small Israel is compared to the attacking nations, they are outnumbered in men and military power but prevail each time:
- In a matter of hours of Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948, their neighbours Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and Lebanon invaded. The combined population of those countries was over 20 million at that time. Israel had fewer than 1 million Jews but still won the war and expanded the size of Israel by 50 percent.
- During the 6 Day War in 1967, Israel attacked the air force bases of the surrounding countries and took control of Jerusalem for the first time in about 2000 years. They also seized additional territory. That war lasted a mere 6 days.
- In October 1973, the Yom Kippur War started. Israel was attacked by Egypt and Syria with other countries later joining them. But the Jews were able to push back the attacking armies and occupy additional land outside of it’s borders.
And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. (Leviticus 26:7-8)
Prophecies concerning Nations and Kings
Daniel predicted there will be four world empires
Written around 530 BC Daniel uses symbolic imagery to identify the four world empires. The head of gold is the Babylonian Empire which controlled most of the world 2600 years ago. Following this, Daniel said that the empire would be empire symbolized by arms of silver which was the Medo-Persian Empire. The two arms for the two Medes and Persians groups. The status’s belly and thighs of brass are the third empire which scholars believe refers to the Grecian Empire. Alexander the Great leader the Grecian empire which was united but was divided after his death, this is suggested in the symbol of the belly that divides into the thighs. The legs of iron and feed which were part of iron and part of clay is believed to be the Roman Empire who conquered the Grecian Empire. Each of these empires have ruled over the land of Israel at times which would have been the Jewish homeland, but during the Roman Empire Jerusalem was destroyed causing hundreds of thousands of Jews to go into exile. Daniel 7 and 8 details these more.
This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. (Daniel 2:32-33)
Josiah name prophesied and he will break down Jeroboam’s alters
God prophesied that a man named Josiah would rise in the house of King David 300 years before he was born. And that he would break down the altars of Jeroboam, 2 Kings 23:15-20 details the fulfillment of this prophecy exactly as the Lord had said.
And he cried against the altar in the word of the Lord, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the Lord; Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name; and upon thee shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men’s bones shall be burnt upon thee. And he gave a sign the same day, saying, This is the sign which the Lord hath spoken; Behold, the altar shall be rent, and the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out. (1 Kings 13:2-3)
Tyre will be destroyed
Tyre was famous in the ancient Near East, now it is located in Lebanon, 20 miles south of Sidon. Type was divided into two parts; a mainland city on the coast and an island known as the “The Rock”. The ancient city was a thriving centre of international commerce. There are many prophecies covering the fall of Tyre that were fulfilled over a period of more than 250 years, Alexander the Great fulfilled the final prophecies concerning Tyre in 332 BC.
Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant: But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus, which shall devour the palaces thereof. (Amos 1:9-10)
Other prophecies concerning Tyre:
- Tyre would be attacked by many nations (Ezekiel 26:3)
- Tyre’s walls will be broken down and their houses would be demolished to then be thrown in the water to create a causeway to the island. Alexander the Great dramatically fulfilled this to the smallest detail! (Ezekiel 26:12)
- the Lord will destroy Tyre’s power on the sea (Zechariah 9:3-4)
- Phoenician Tyre would never be found again (Ezekiel 26:21), nor would it be rebuilt (Ezekiel 26:14)
Cyrus’ name prophesied and he will subdue nations
The prophet Isaiah, in about 700 BC, names a Medo-Persian king 100 years before he was born and nearly 150 years before he became a king. Cyrus began his conquests mid-sixth century BC in around 550 BC. It is probably that Daniel himself handed Cyrus the scroll containing this prophecy (see Daniel 6:28) Cyrus must have been amazed to see his own name written on the document! This must have been an important factor in Cyrus giving the exiled Jews permission to return to their homeland.
That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid. (Isaiah 44:28)
Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. (Isaiah 45:1-6)
Rise and fall of history’s mightiest conqueror
Ancient prophets Daniel and Zechariah both predicted the rise and fall history’s mightiest conqueror – Alexander the Great. The Bible describes in amazing precision the military campaigns during his rise, Alexander the Great fulfilled all the details of these prophecies and died only three years after gaining control of the known world.
These are just two examples that detail parts of his conquests:
And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand. (Daniel 8:5-7)
The burden of the word of the Lord in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the Lord. And Hamath also shall border thereby; Tyrus, and Zidon, though it be very wise. And Tyrus did build herself a strong hold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets. Behold, the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire. Ashkelon shall see it, and fear; Gaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful, and Ekron; for her expectation shall be ashamed; and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited. And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines. And I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth: but he that remaineth, even he, shall be for our God, and he shall be as a governor in Judah, and Ekron as a Jebusite. (Zechariah 9:1-7)
The Kings of South versus the Kings of North
Meticulous recording of history before the event are recorded in Daniel chapter 11, there are over 100 prophecies in the these verses alone. They chronicle the 150 year struggle, the back-and-forth, between the Egyptian and Syrian dynasties. The level of detail is incredible which makes this one the most remarkable prophecies in the Bible. Daniel 11 is conclusive proof of God’s omniscience.
Daniel 11:3-4 prophesies the rise and fall of Alexander the Great who ruled Greece from 330 – 323 BC, referred to here as the “mighty king”:
And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those. (Daniel 11:3-4, emphasis added)
Alexander’s kingdom shall be “divided toward the four winds of heaven”, this prophesies the kingdom being split four ways. Alexander the Great died in 323 BC, the Greek empire was then divided between Alexander’s four generals; Cassander became king of Macedonia, Lysimachus ruled over Asia Minor and Thrace, Ptolemy and his successors rule the kingdom of Egypt, and Seleucus and his descendants ruled over Syria.
The table below summarises the further prophecies detailed in Daniel 11:4-35:
|Ptolemies (Kings of the South, Egypt)||Seleucids (Kings of the North, Syria)|
|11:5 Ptolemy I Soter (323-285 BC)||11:5 Seleucus I Nicator (312-281 BC)|
|11:6 Ptolemy II Philadelphus (285-246)||Antiochus I Soter (281-262)|
|11:6 Antiochus II Theos (262-246)|
|11:7-8 Ptolemy III Euergetes (246-221)||11:7-9 Seleucus II Callinicus (256-227)|
|11:10 Seleucus III Soter (227-223)|
|11:11-12, 14-15 Ptolemy IV Philpator (221-204)||11:10-11,13,15-19 Antiochus III the Great (223-187)|
|11:17 Ptolemy V Epiphanes||11:20 Seleucus IV Philopator (187-176)|
|11:25 Ptolemy VI Philopator (181-145)||11:21-32 Antiochus IV Epiphanes (175-163)|
Prophecies concerning future technology
Whole world will see the bodies of the two witnesses killed
Only in the last 30 years has technology progressed enough to make this prophecy possible. This event has not happened yet and people in the past would have struggled to see how this could be fulfilled literally, but now it is possible to broadcast images around the world in an instant!
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. (Revelation 11:9)
Nuclear weapon fallout consuming a human body
This prophecy possibly describes the effects of a nuclear weapon consuming a human body. Again, this future event would have sounded very strange to the ears of the original hearers, but now many nations own nuclear weapons as this phrase no longer sounds confusing.
And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. (Zechariah 14:12)
Critics may try to explain away these prophecies by saying they were written after the event but archaeological discoveries (e.g. the Dead Sea scrolls) prove against this. Not only this, but the Septuagint (LXX) translation of the Old Testament is proven to have been circulated in the third century BC. This is hundreds of years before some of the prophecies. If you believe there is a God who created the world then describing the future in detail is no problem. God has used prophecy in the Bible as a means of proving its claims and we therefore have no excuse if we choose to reject Christ.
Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. (Isaiah 42:9)
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: (Isaiah 46:9-10)
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. (Revelation 22:12)
One of the major reasons for believing in God is that through Bible prophecy He has demonstrated He exists outside the time domain. The Bible has demonstrated its authority and supernatural authorship and is therefore totally unlike any other book! All the prophecies that have been fulfilled so far have been fulfilled very precisely and literally. There is no reason to suspect the remaining unfulfilled prophecies will be carried out with any less precision. We challenge you to look in detail at the numerous prophecies concerning Jesus Christ’s second return and subsequent judgment. We trust God will complete His prophetic Word with the same precision and urge you make sure you are saved in Christ as the Bible predicts some terrifying events are yet to come…
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh (Luke 21:28)
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man (Luke 21:36)
