“But what does it say? The Word (God’s message in Christ) is near you, on your lips and in your heart; that is, the Word (the message, the basis and object) of faith which we preach”
Romans 10:8 AMP
History has proven beyond doubt that the Bible remains the single, most complete and most accurate record of humanity past. From geographical details to chronological datings, we are reassured of the authenticity of our faith.
It is with such confidence that Charles Colson said, “The Bible’s historical accuracy is a reminder that while ‘the heavens declare the glory of God,’ there’s also plenty of evidence among the rubble and ruins.
With regard to prophetic accuracy, the Bible is replete with declarations of future events that unfolded in the exact manner to which they were foretold.
The flow has always been the same: God reveals His plans to men and they always came to pass. In fact, the phrase “it came to pass” was used many times to denote the fulfilment of a promise or prophecy.
One of such is the promise God gave to Abraham of the great number of his future generation, their time in slavery and their exodus to the promised land. The reality of this plan spanned across five to six books of the Bible and was still referred to in many other books.
Similarly, God walked with Moses and gave him prophecies about the territorial conquests of the people of Israel. All of these were fulfilled.
See what 1 Kings 8:56 has to say about it.
“Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.”
Another is the plan of salvation. This is undoubtedly the central theme of the Bible. The diligent study of the scriptures will reveal from the beginning that God already had a plan to save man through Jesus.
All the prophecies about the Messiah (although greatly misunderstood by many at the time) pointed to the fact that he will come from the tribe of King David yet suffer persecution and be a sacrificial lamb for the people.
Indeed, God makes no mistakes. This is why we must build our confidence from His word. It is also important to note that His spoken word will never contradict His written word.
Beloved, God’s word is infallible. You can rely on Him.
