and the Bible has been belittled the French atheist bull tear before his death said 100 years from today the Bible will be a forgotten book ironically a hundred years after his death Voltaire’s own

generation for ever the Almighty God has protected the Bible so that you and I can have its guidance today fact for science and archaeology support the Bible some say that science is at odds with the Bible but true science is always in harmony with the Bible for example the Bible clearly reveals the shape of the earth in isaiah 40:22 it is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth long before scientists knew the bible revealed that the earth was circular did you know that the Bible was the first to teach that air has weights Joel 28:25 States to make the wait for the winds it took scientists until the early 1600s to make this breakthrough discovery centuries after the Bible declared it the Tel Dan stele the Mesha stele the nabonidus cylinder the Dead Sea Scrolls all helped prove the accuracy of the Bible fact 5 the Bible has internal consistency the Bible was written over a period of 1500 years by 40 different authors despite many of them never meeting each other they wrote with perfect internal consistency all of their writings being in seamless harmony could it be that a divine hand was guiding them according to the Bible this is exactly what happened second Peter 1:21 states holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost this sixth point truly separates the Bible from all world religions now don’t miss this it’s one-word prophecy prophecy has been defined as history written in advance the ability to hear from God and even predict the future with perfect accuracy this ability is undisputable proof of divine origin in the encyclopedia of Biblical prophecy J Barton Payne states that there are eighteen hundred and seventeen prophecies in the Bible making up about 27% of the Bible’s total writings no other world religion even comes close and it makes sense if someone attempts to predict the future and is wrong they’re instantly discredited but the Bible stands alone in its ability to accurately tell the future for a powerful example of an ancient Bible prophecy they came to pass exactly as the Bible predicted check out the video in the description below entitled Daniel – urgent Bible prophecy for today as another example let us consider the life of Jesus there are over a hundred and twenty-five prophecies in the Bible’s Old Testament of the coming Messiah the one who would die for the sins of the human race Jesus perfectly fulfilled each and every one of these Old Testament prophecies dr. Peter stoner a mathematician and former chairman at Pasadena college calculated that the odds of one man fulfilling just eight of these a hundred and twenty five-plus prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 33rd power God knows the end from the beginning this separates the God of the Bible from all other gods isaiah 46:9 through ten declares 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 but perhaps the most powerful evidence for the authority of the Bible is this seventh undeniable fact the Bible changes lives the Bible states therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature old things are passed away behold all things are become new I have seen countless times where the Bible has transformed lives it makes the drunkard sober and makes the hateful kind it shows how we can have victory over our bad habits and how we can receive eternal life for me the teachings of the Bible have given me purpose and direction for my life and hope for the future I know that it can do the same for you it will help you to answer life’s three most important questions where did I come from why am I here and where am I going dear friends I command to use the Bible the inspired Word of God this book has been tested by time and has been proven to be trustworthy it is a book that stands apart from the rest it is a book that you can build your life on here on this channel you have my commitments to let the Bible and the Bible only be the standard the benchmark the authority for all of our videos if it’s in the Bible I want it if it’s not in the Bible it’s not for me I appeal to each of you watching this today to let this book be the guide for your life ask God to send the Holy Spirit so you can understand it read it every day and be willing to follow its teachings if this is your desire just write in the comments section below give me the Bible I also want you to know that I’m accessible if you have a prayer request or a Bible question feel free to send me a personal email at Dustin at Hope through prophecy org if this video has been helpful to you please like subscribe and continue to watch hope through prophecy [Music]
