Prophesy Continues to Unfold as Written in the Bible

With passage of time, the Bible becomes a more proven and significant text for all who believe God and His Word. As the human race becomes more sophisticated, educated and illuminated, God‟s Word in both the Old and New Testaments is increasingly more easily confirmed, understood in greater measures of revelation and multiple realms, spiritual and natural truths unfolding for all the world to see. The technology computer age has revealed mathematical patterns, written long ago. The “Bible Codes” demonstrate further how everything has already been measured, and that even the telling of it all is specifically arranged as only the Creator could. The meanings of names in those long lists of lineage, for example, tell a story. In contrast people in Hosea chapter 4:6 “… are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” God said that in the last days knowledge would abound! (Daniel 12:4) Christians have known the Bible to be God‟s inerrant Word. Faithful Jewish scribes watched over the Old Testament of that Word with great diligence. The whole Bible, however, was “stored” away from the common man by those who did not want to be likened to the Anti- Christ. For a long time only the elite had access to both Testaments and only they could read it and teach the masses its content. Coming out of the Dark Ages, when the Light of God‟s Word was hidden away for centuries, the Bible “came through fire” when persecuted believers risked their lives to share it with everyone. With perfect timing, archeologists continue to “prove” its content, the accuracy which has been retained over the centuries. The famous “Dead Sea Scrolls” find by the Bedouin shepherd last century attest to the faithfully guarded Word in Isaiah, just one example. The evidence continues to accrue that the Bible is the Word of God and that the power of God‟s Word is revealed within.

How great is Our God?

It‟s truly a Blessed Assurance, knowing God is communicating with us continually and that as we grow up we can understand better the wonder of His Mighty Love and provision for us! Prophesies of the Old Testament especially are difficult to dismiss unless one is truly blinded. Jesus, in the New Testament, foretold of the last days as well. When the „academics‟ try to disprove the Word, remember, they may not know it. For example, the number of years in the history of Israel, by God‟s account, do not include the years of Israel‟s captivity.

Jeremiah 31:3

“... For I will forgive their iniquity and their sin. I will remember no more.” Isaiah 43:25 I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for my own sake. And I will not remember your sins. Psalms 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
