One of my favorites facts about the Bible is the fulfilled prophecies! Parts of the Bible were difficult for me to believe… like a donkey talking. But, when I started seeing all of the fulfilled prophecies I was convinced that the rest of the Bible was true too!
Here is an excellent video highlighting just a few of the prophecies…
This morning I was reading in Joshua and he mentioned again what would happen to the Israelites if they worshipped other gods. Even Moses warned the people not to get involved with idolatry.
Moses said he knew that they would. It took many hundreds of years but Moses predicted that they would be taken out of the land. They were! In the book on Jeremiah, it was predicted that the Jews would be in captivity for 70 years. They were!
Most people today don’t know that many discoveries in science came about because scientists actually studied the Bible and found passages about the world. Then, they went out to find them. For example, Matthew Maury read Psalm 8:3-8 ‘the paths of the sea’ caught his attention.
When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
5 You have made them a little lower than the angels[e]
He concluded that there must be currents in the sea. He found and plotted them which became very useful for navigating the seas. There is even a monument in Virginia that says:
“Matthew Fontaine Maury, Pathfinder of the Seas, the Genius Who First Snatched from the Ocean and Atmosphere the Secret of Their Laws. His Inspiration, Holy Writ,Psalm 8:8, Psalm 107:23,24, and Ecclesiastes 1:6.”
I most appreciate the verses about God Love for us, like John 3:16:
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
This world was created by an Amazing God who loves you!!
