HAVE YOU EVER PROVED WHETHER THE BIBLE IS THE authoritative Word of Almighty God? We can know, definitely, that the Bible’s revelations are true. Only the great God could have accurately predicted today’s news long ago!
Today’s startling headlines of world news were written in Bible prophecy long before they actually occurred. And tomorrow’s news has already been written in advance!
Most people would acknowledge that it was impossible for men over 2,500 years ago to have looked into the future and foretold what is now happening in all the major nations. Weather experts often fail in foretelling the weather just days in advance and even within the hour.
Side note: Let’s read Song of Songs 4:16 “Awake, O north wind; and come thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.”
This entire Song of Solomon is really called the Song of Songs and it’s the greatest love song of all time and will be throughout all of eternity because it’s from the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The relationship utilized here between Solomon and his wife are the model examples and serving as admonitions for us today; but on a deeper level it’s all about the representation of the relationship between Christ and his future bride to be. It’s true that most people believe this particular book of the Bible is some sort of sexual relationship between Solomon and his wife. It may be truly the sexiest book of the Bible but rest assure it has nothing to do with sex at all and has everything to do with intimacy and chemistry. Think of two people whom are dating and according to the laws of God, sex before marriage is absolutely not permitted. In addition to the Spiritual side of things you can clearly see that there is no sex in the coming Kingdom of God, but there is deep intimacy and wide chemistry between two physical people dating, or at least there should be. Likewise their is deep intimacy and wide chemistry between Christ and his future bride to be (the Church of God). In order to have this with Christ one must not only communicate with the Heavenly Father but know how to through prayer (Your speech to him), Bible study (His speech to you), and meditation (the unity of thought between you and the Heavenly Father). Now straight to the bigger point here that i want to expound on, and the reason of bringing Song of Songs 4:16 to you’re undivided attention in affiliation to the overall theme of understanding the topic of prophecy being the proof of God. read it again, did you catch it? Did you understand it? Let me repeat the previous statement: Weather experts often fail in foretelling the weather just days in advance and even within the hour. The Bible however, actually helps you predict the weather without any weather experts! Before you can eat fruit you first must have a garden, but before you can have a garden you first must have rain! We have had a lot of rain lately! Did you know before it rains, that the wind actually blows? For example if the wind blows from the East to the West, it’s a strong indication that were have a thunderstorm and THUNDER is an indication that God’s speaking to the inhabitants of the earth, mix that with the sure RAINSTORM making it a THUNDERSTORM and it’s not so pleasant to the inhabitants of the area. In fact it often results in flooding which can and will destroy a garden aside from other effects. Not so much of a blessing is it? It’s not designed to be either through the law of cause and effect. Now focus on the scripture again, Wind from the north blowing south is absolutely an indication that a blessed and decent amount of rainfall is on the way. Next time you feel the wind blow play close attention and put the understanding of the scripture to the test. It just may bring you closer to God on a deeper level of intimacy with a wilder ever growing chemistry.
What chance does anyone have of foretelling specific events to happen to great powers like the United States, Britain, the European Union, Russia or China, and having the prophecies come true; unless they were divinely inspired?
Such prophecies were made centuries before they were fulfilled and some are now being fulfilled precisely as the prophets foretold!
Fulfilled prophecy of history’s past is proof of the existence of God Almighty. It is proof of the divine inspiration of the Bible. It is proof that the Bible contains knowledge revealed from God that we could not otherwise discover or know. Isn’t it rational and even logical, then, to believe in the God who made His revelation known thousands of years in advance?
Some people think that the only way to prove the inspiration of the Bible is by means of Jesus’s miracles. But the skeptics do not believe those miracles ever happened, even though the historical testimony of unconverted Jews and pagans admit that Jesus did perform those miracles.
Others think of answered prayers as the major proof of inspiration. But the skeptics has had no prayers answered. They do not believe that the prayers of others has either, and attributes any such claims to coincidence or circumstance.
Yet here is a book, The Holy Bible… within it’s pages; challenging these skeptics by daring them to foretell the future history of this world. God declares us all to look within its pages and prove it’s undeniable inspiration by the one source of irrefutable proof = fulfilled prophecy!
Prophecy is the one proof upon which Scripture stands or it falls. It cannot be both and here is what God says: “Set forth your case, says the LORD: bring your proofs, says the King of Jacob. And tell us what is to happen. Tell us the former things, what they are, that we may consider them, that we may know their outcome; or declare to us the things to come” (Isaiah 41:21-41:22; Revised Standard Version). God says, as it were, “Let’s hear your prophecies that we may see whether or not they turn out. Predict what is going to happen in the future, and let us see whether you can foretell. Can you make and unmake nations? Can you pronounce a sentence or a decree on a nation, and bring it to pass?”
If prophecies have not been fulfilled, then the skeptics would have proof that the Bible is a fraud. But prophecy HAS been fulfilled! Contrary to popular belief, the rise and fall of history’s great nations, including America and Britain, WAS prophesied by God in considerable detail in the pages of the Bible. In fact, an exciting, pulsating, vital “one third” of the whole Bible is devoted to prophecy. And approximately 90% of all prophecy pertains to our time, now, in these last days! Think about that for a few minutes, Its deep! The future 1,000 years of Christ ruling with the saints (upon their Spiritual resurrection) is the last and final 1,000 of a total 7,000 year plan (Symbolic to a whole week) in mankind’s physical existence (additional insight: “Ezekiel 37:1-37:14” the second resurrection involves all those who have ever lived but have truly never knew God. “At this point and time they will be resurrected back into their physical bodies to be taught by Christ and His new Spiritual Bride, about the Heavenly Father: before they themselves can be transformed at the end of that 1,000 year reign of Christ and His Church, where they will then be Spiritually born into the God family as the second harvest representing; “the Spiritual children”, the results, and the fruits within that Holy Spiritual Marriage between Christ and his Bride). As of right now at this very moment, nearly 6,000 years of mankind’s physical existence has occurred, so were very close to the second coming of Christ and that future 1,000 years; yet nearly 90% of all prophecy is due to occur between now and Christ’s return.
Moving right along: Yes, fulfilled prophecy is the proof of divine revelation! If one, throughout the Bible, speaking and claiming to be God, can prophesy and tell what is going to happen in the future to our cities, our nations, our world-ruling empires; then if it actually happens in every case, without a miss, no sane mind can deny that God must have spoken it. And for the 10 percent of prophesy that has already happened over the last past near 6,000 years can be found right there in God’s Holy Bible.
One of the most important pursuits of our lives should be to prove God’s existence and the inspiration of His written Word. Today, God is making His existence known to you by showing that His inspired Word (the Holy Bible) is absolutely dependable.
A Special Message
Many people love to discuss Bible prophecy today. But there is a missing dimension in all of those public discussions. There is a critical lack in their understanding. The underlying thrust of all Bible prophecy is positive. It’s about the return of Jesus Christ. However, there are some very dark prophecies that precede Christ’s return. Even those prophecies contain God’s hope and love, but mankind refuse to understand. The dark prophecies are designed by God to teach us that we must have God’s character. Man is dangerously incomplete without God. To understand that, all we have to do is observe what is happening in the world. Mankind has refused to receive God’s direction. That rebellion has produced the evil world in which we live. That is why man is facing so many dark prophecies. Upon the start of the Philadelphia Era, God sent an end-time Elijah to restore all things (Matthew 17:10-17:11) to His Church and proclaim “all things” to this world. He did so for more than 50 years. But most people rejected the message. Today I will and do proclaim the same message. Generally, men and women reject it. Shamefully, at the beginning of the Laodicea era, most members once of God’s own Church has rejected that message (Revelation 3:14-3:20) making a small flock a very small flock. Edward R. Murrow was probably America’s greatest news journalist ever. He tried to get the press to cover more serious subjects in order to prevent the news media from becoming a vast wasteland. He believed it was essential for the future of Britain and America. But he finally admitted that the press wouldn’t listen to him or anybody else! This is the problem of all mankind, and that attitude is why we face the black prophecies. We bring them upon ourselves and then often blame God! People love to discuss Bible prophecy, but they reject God’s view of His own prophecies! That is the missing dimension in Bible Prophecy, just as the Holy Spirit is the missing dimension in all the minds of the unbelievers. All of the dark prophecies could be changed immediately if we all heeded God’s message. In God’s own laws of cause and effect, He allows the evil to continue until we repent. Then mankind can fulfill its potential in the God Family forever!
