“Proof the Bible is True”
Has anyone ever asked you if the bible was true? If you said yes, did they ask how you can prove it?
Well if they have not asked you this to this point, they will; at least if you talk to others about matters of faith.
If you know the scriptures well enough, you can take them to the Old Testament and show them, Jesus, in the prophets, in the Christophanies. (the physical appearing of Christ in the Old Testament.)
However, they might not believe that Jesus was real.
One of the best proofs the Bible is true is the fact that Israel is still a nation. This too was prophesied.
You are invited to read the following verses.
This was written before Israel was scattered over the entire world. This scattering happened at least three times.
1 When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come upon you and you take them to heart wherever the Lord your God disperses you among the nations, 2 and when you and your children return to the Lord your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, 3 then the Lord your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you.
4 Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back.
5 He will bring you to the land that belonged to your fathers, and you will take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than your fathers.
6 The Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live.
7 The Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies who hate and persecute you.
8 You will again obey the Lord and follow all his commands I am giving you today.
9 Then the Lord your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands and in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your land. The Lord will again delight in you and make you prosperous, just as he delighted in your fathers, 10 if you obey the Lord your God and keep his commands and decrees that are written in this Book of the Law and turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
There is no earthly reason that the nation of Israel still exists. They live in the tinderbox of the Middle East where all the surrounding nations hate their guts.
And yet, there they are. More and more Jewish people are moving back to their homeland.
And this was foretold before they were scattered the first time.
Remember. when we hold the Bible, we hold a living history book and a book of prophecy. Some of the Bible has already been fulfilled, while other parts are being fulfilled while we live in this age of grace.
Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow. Amen
