Secular Sources Prove God’s Word

After thousands of years of research and study, historians, archeologists, philosophers and scientists are proving that the claims of the Bible, authored by God, are accurate and true. We see obvious confirmations in astronomical, anthropological, archeological, biological, chemical and geological facts. The Bible is filled with truth, which scientist took thousands of years to discover and are now proving.

 

Of course, the biggest proof, which Columbus helped to confirm, is that the earth is round and that it is supported by nothing but gravity from the sun (Job 26:7; Isaiah 40:22; Psalm 103:12). Astronomers are proving what the Bible also states: that the stars are innumerable (Jeremiah 33:22; Genesis 22:17), differ in their brilliancy and life span (1 Corinthians 15:41), follow a predictable course, and cluster in constellations and galaxies (Jeremiah 31:35; Job 9:9).

 

For years, anthropologists debated whether the human race originated from one source. Today, DNA and genetics authenticate what the Bible claimed all along, that we came from one man and one woman (Genesis 3:20; 1 Corinthians 15:54; Acts 17:26). The various races came when God scattered the inhabitants of the known world across the whole earth (Genesis 11:1-9).

 

Evolution claims that all of life came from a single cell. However, the Bible claims that God created everything “after it’s own kind.” Biology confirmed that blood circulation, complex protein sequences in DNA – which are unique with each individual, fossil records and the lack of proof of evolutionary links in any discovery to date, all substantiate that God created each species as uniquely special (Leviticus 17:11).

 

The study of geology, with today’s scientific methods, corroborate that fossil records validate the Biblical claim that a catastrophic flood annihilated life and petrified life forms at that time. This confirms scripture found in Ecclesiastes 1:7, Isaiah 55:10, Psalm 8:8 and Genesis 7:11. God gives us accurate predictions of future events, so that we do not fear the future.

 

Even with all of this proof, human pride resists believing in the Biblical accounts, because they would have to submit to Almighty God. They prefer trusting in human reasoning, even though there are missing links in every human theory (Romans 1:21; 2 Peter 3:5). They believe they are in control of their own destiny, and use limited knowledge to purport their theories as facts. They receive worldwide acclaim for what is nothing more than ignorance of God’s Truth.

 

False prophets and prognosticators help to dilute God’s truth, because people dismiss the accuracy of Bible prophecy due to suppositions by sources such as the Mayans and Nostradamus. Yet, just in the book of Daniel we see the perfect prediction of the course of Middle Eastern society for five entire centuries (Daniel 7:6, 8:5-8, 11:2-4). God’s Word is Truth and we can stake our life on it.

 

Prayer:

Father God, You love us so much, and understand our human penchant to need to see proof so well, that You gave us the Bible full of facts and figures to convince even the most uneducated person that Your Word is Truth. Yet, people continue to allow Satan’s lies to distract them from believing in You for their salvation (2 Timothy 4:4). In the end, even the most hardened skeptic will bow their knee to King Jesus, even those who condemn themselves to hell by their unbelief (Romans 14:11; Philippians 2:10; John 3:18)

 

Thought for the Day:

Biblical truth has been verified continuously over the years by every historic, archeological, philosophical and scientific discovery made by mankind. – Isaiah 41:21-23, 48:3-5

How to Know the Bible is True

We know without a doubt that the Bible is true, because it’s prophecies are true. Bible prophecies are exact predictions of future events, and they have a very slim chance of occurring by coincidence. No other predictors, such as Nostradamus, were ever as exact in their predictions as Bible prophecy. Even in archeology and historical records, we see the exact details of the Bible confirmed.

Discoveries such as the Tel Dan Stele (900-850 BC), the Meesha Stele (846 BC), the Nabonidus Cylinder (550 BC) and the Caiaphas Ossuary establish the veracity of the Bible. No archeological find has ever invalidated the Bible. In fact, proper research of Biblical references constantly leads to startling archeological discoveries. Even people formerly considered as fictional are proven to have just lived like the Bible stated.

The Bible is full of prophetic utterances recorded for all posterity. Daniel foresaw the exact lineage of the four empires from Babylon to Medo-Persia to Greece to Rome. He predicted the spectacular rise of the Greek conqueror Alexander the Great to power, as well as the final division of his Greek empire by four of his surviving generals (Daniel 7:6, 8:5-8, 11:2-4).

Ezekiel’s prophesied about the destruction of the Phoenician city Tyre (Ezekiel 26). Isaiah predicted the coming reign of the Persian King Cyrus — two hundred years before his birth (Isaiah 44:28). God even prophesied to Isaiah that He would predict distant future events and bring them to pass Himself (Isaiah 41:21-23, 48:3-5). The exactness of the multitude of ancient texts also prove the veracity of the Bible.

Jesus fulfilled over three hundred Bible prophecies with unerring accuracy (Isaiah 11:1-Matthew 2:6; Genesis 35:19, 48:7; Ruth 4:11; 1 Samuel 23:23; Exodus 18:25; Psalm 90:2-John 1:1). Consider His life (Isaiah 7:14-Matthew 1:18; Micah 5:2-Matthew 2:1; Isaiah 35:5–6-Matthew 11:5), His death (Isaiah 50:6-Mark 14:65; Isaiah 53:12- Mark 14:65; Isaiah 53:9-Matthew 27:57–60), His resurrection (Psalm 16:10-Mark 16:6), His ascension into heaven (Psalm 68:18; Mark 16:19) and His exaltation at God’s right hand (Psalm 110:1; 1 Peter 3:22).

In the end times in which we live, the news consistently reports another fulfilled Biblical prophecy (1 Thessalonians 5:1-9:1). Record-breaking weather, world events such as the new nation of Israel, the revised Roman Empire in the European Union and the World Council of Churches, along with mounting Israeli-Arab hostilities and the coalition between Russia and the Middle East fulfill a major portion of end time prophecies (2 Timothy 3:3-17; Ezekiel 35-39).

Are you ready to meet King Jesus face-to-face? The Bible is true. Jesus is coming again. Be on your guard so that you many not be deceived by the error of lawless people, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to whom we owe all glory and honor (2 Peter 3:17-18).

Prayer:
Father God, I pray that You will open the eyes of the understanding of everyone who reads this post, so that they can see and comprehend the wonderful love You have for all of mankind. You did not just speak the world into existence (Genesis 1:1) and then leave us to function on our own (Colossians 1:17; Psalm 18:35, 20:6, 138:7; Isaiah 41:10, 48:13). You are constantly involved in the lives of anyone who will give You the time in their day (Proverbs 3:5-6). Draw us ever closer to Your heart.

Fulfilled Prophecy proves that the Bible is true.
