“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” – 2 Timothy 3:16
One reason to believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God is because of the fulfilled prophecy of the Bible. Only God can prophesy. No one else, apart from God, knows the future. The only future we know is the future that God has revealed in His Word. There are many so-called psychics today. Let me ask you a question: If they know the future, how come none of them win the lottery? I read recently where a psychic network went bankrupt. I wonder if they saw it coming. Only God can prophesy.
Now God, in the Bible, has predicted thousands of events that have already come to pass along with other events that will come to pass. Therefore, you can take a child of God, lock him away in a dungeon with only a Bible and a candle, and he will know more about the future than all the “wise people” and the prognosticators of the world who don’t learn from the Word of God.
- What are some prophecies of the Bible you know have been fulfilled?
- How does reflecting on these fulfillments build your faith?
Make a list of all the prophecies you know from the Bible. Make notes of those that have already been fulfilled and those that are promised to come.
