Millions of people in this world do not believe God exists and claim that he is only imaginary. Additionally, these same people reason that since God does not exist then the bible is also fake and not from God. These beliefs are on a rising trend worldwide. However, what is the truth? Is God imaginary and the Bible fake or is God real and the Bible actually “God’s Word” being inspired by him? Please take a moment and completely read some of the facts that are often overlooked.
The Bible predicted television and other advanced technology. Revelation 11:3 describes two witnesses which will prophesy in the last days. Revelation 11:7-10 is where it gets interesting. There it says that these two witnesses will be killed and their dead bodies will lay in the street and “they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another” How can it be that people of all languages and nations all over Earth can all see two dead people lying in a street? The answer is because the Bible was actually predicting the Television and similar other technology such as computers. Television, computers and other electronic devices in addition to 24-hour global news coverage would allow for such an event to be seen by everyone around the world.
The bible predicted other technology as well. In Mark 13:10 and also Matthew 24:14 they state a prophecy about the Gospel being published and preached to the entire world before the end comes. These scriptures were written way before the printing press was even invented. Before the printing press, Bibles were handwritten and were much rarer to obtain. These scriptures predict more than just a printing press however. These scriptures predict that the Gospel will spread throughout the entire world. The very means for transporting the Gospel would be extremely difficult without the means of international transportation such as aircraft travel. Even considering the automated production of Bibles accomplished after the invention of the printing press and also the advanced means of transportation, this would still be a very difficult task to accomplish without the use of technology such as radio, television, satellites, internet and other technology.
The bible seems to have predicted the invention of the nuclear bomb. In Isaiah 17:1 it prophesied that the city of Damascus will be taken away from being a city and would become a ruinous heap. Damascus is perhaps the worlds oldest city. This prophecy has not yet been fulfilled since this city still exists to this very day. However, in our generation, only a nuclear bomb would be the weapon that could cause this entire city to become a ruinous heap. In Matthew 24:21-22 it prophesied that there will be great tribulation that has never happened to the world and will never happen again. It then states that should those days not be shortened that nobody would be saved. A nuclear war would indeed be considered the greatest tribulation in all mankind’s history. And only a nuclear war would cause the need for God to intervene in order to prevent all mankind from becoming extinct. Another supporting scripture is found at Revelation 11:18 which describes God’s wrath against those who ruined the Earth. There are in fact many scriptures in the Bible that seem to support the invention of the nuclear bomb. However, for the sake of time, only these three scriptures have been stated.
Anyone who would have prophesied these words even just a few hundred years ago surely would have sounded “crazy” by the world’s standards. However, in our day and age, it is not hard to see how these predictions are very possible. The bible is filled with prophecies that have already come true and others that are yet to be fulfilled. These prophecies prove that the Bible is “God’s Word” and has been inspired by him. Therefore, if the Bible is real then that means God is real! If you already have not, please get to know God. Repent of your sins, ask for forgiveness and live the life you were supposed to live. Help spread this message to all who will listen.
