The Bible is Fact

1. The Bible is Ahead of Science

Many people today do not believe in the Bible because they think the Bible is just a book written by men. However the Bible provides us with countless proof that everything written in it is fact. First the Bible starts with the creation of the Heaven and the Earth and ends with the creation of the new Heaven and the new Earth, that is our eternal home. To lead us to our eternal home (Kingdom of Heaven), God gave us the Bible as our guidance. Let us confirm through various examples that everything recorded in the Bible is fact.

Job 26:7 He spreads out the northern skies over empty space, he suspends the earth over nothing.

This is a record about the earth. The Bible testified that the earth is suspended in space. Back in the early days, when no scientist existed, the ancient people thought the earth was fixed on something. However in the 17th century, Isaac Newton discovered the law of  the universal gravitation and proved that the earth is surely suspended in space. The Bible already proved this fact before science came into existence. Through this example alone, we can understand that the Bible is fact and that it precedes science. The Bible contains the true records of our almighty God.

Job 36:27-28 He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams; the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind.

This is a brief record about the water cycle. ‘He draws up the water’, refers to evaporation. The Bible further explains this water distills as rain to the streams, which means that vapor condenses into clouds and then it rains. Mankind could only understand the water cycle process in the 16th and 17th century when Perrault and Marriotte discovered the water cycle. The Bible precisely recorded about the water cycle 3500 years before that. Truly in the Bible, we can find God’s records and everything in it is true.

2. History Proved that The Bible is Fact

God did not just show to us that the Bible is fact through science, but even through the records of the past, God showed that the Bible is fact. The Bible has records about the Prophecy of Cyrus and its fulfillment. Cyrus was a gentile King of Persia who freed the Israelites that were held captive in Babylon for about 70 years. Cyrus freed the Israelites after defeating Babylon. Let us see about this through the Bible records.

Ezra 1: 1-3 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the Lord spoken by Jeremiah, the Lord moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and also to put it in writing: “This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: “‘The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Any of his people among you may go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the Lord, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem, and may their God be with them.

Cyrus who was a gentile King gave praise to God of Israel and said that God gave him all the kingdoms of the earth. This can be absurd since it came from someone who did not believe in God at all. However when we understand why Cyrus said such words, it would make sense that Cyrus praised God.

Isaiah 45:1-3, 13  This is what the Lord says to his anointed,to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: I will go before you  and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name…I will raise up Cyrus in my righteousness: I will make all his ways straight. He will rebuild my city and set my exiles free,but not for a price or reward,  says the Lord Almighty.”

If a person discovers a book that recorded his/her life’s accomplishments, it becomes very interesting to read such a book and one would regard that book as special. The book of Isaiah was written about 170 years before Cyrus freed the Israleites, yet it recorded about his name and his accomplishments. Seeing this, Cyrus gave praise to God and walked in step with the prophecies of the Bible believing Bible is fact.

Let’s look at another Bible prophecy.

Daniel 8:20-22  The two-horned ram that you saw represents the kings of Media and Persia.The shaggy goat is the king of Greece, and the large horn between its eyes is the first king. The four horns that replaced the one that was broken off represent four kingdoms that will emerge from his nation but will not have the same power.

This prophecy was recorded before the fall of Babylon. The Bible recorded about the kingdoms that were to emerge right after Babylon, that is Media Persia and Greece. It also recorded about the division that Greece was to undergo after the death of the first King of Greece. After the death of Alexander the Great, four generals divided the kingdom of Greece into four kingdoms just as prophesied in the Bible. Everything happened exactly as recorded in the Bible.

Through these examples, we ought to trust the records of the Bible absolutely. When we believe the Bible, we will walk in step with its teachings and successfully reach the Kingdom of Heaven.

3. The Prophecy About our Eternal Home, Heaven

The Bible prophesied about the home our souls will go to once the current earth is destroyed.

Revelation 21: 1, 4 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea… ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

The time for us to enter the beautiful Kingdom of Heaven is very near according to the Bible. This is a place where no news of pain, sorrow or even death will be heard. What type of people ought we to be then? We ought to live holy lives while following God’s guidance given through the Bible.

Imitating the acts of those who do not believe the Bible will lead us to destruction. Let us firmly believe the Bible and enter our eternal home very soon.
