The Accuracy of the Bible

Those that claim the Bible is just a book of man-made myths and stories have never put it to the test. 28% Over of the Bible is made up of prophecy. Over 2000 of these prophecies have been fulfilled, many down to very specific details. Who but God knows the future.

The Bible contains wisdom and advanced knowledge about nature, prophecy, medical, sanitation, and science. A knowledge that was literally thousands of years ahead of its time, proving that the scriptures were God inspired.

Archaeology has continued to prove the Bible true. Historical scholars claimed there was no proof that King Herod, Pontius Pilate, Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar,  Hezekiah, Darius, and King David ever existed. But archaeological discoveries in recent years have proved they and many more biblical characters did exist. Archaeology has never proved the Bible false, rather it has substantiated the scriptures.  Archaeologists continue to find cities and places mentioned in the Bible, such as in 2004 when they discovered the Siloam Pool where Jesus healed the blind man. And in September of 2015, the biblical city of Sodom was discovered. Excavations show that the city came to a sudden fiery end, just as portrayed in the Bible. In fact, all archaeology finds have agreed with the historical biblical accounts as recorded in the Bible. There has not been a single artifact or discovery made that would disprove what is written in The Word of God.
     Dr. Nelson Glueck, the great Palestinian archaeologist, and President of the Hebrew Union College stated:
    “As a matter of fact, it may be stated categorically that no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a Biblical reference. Scores of archaeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible.”

I challenge those that don’t believe the Bible to read it and test the scriptures. Don’t just believe what others have told you. Don’t be afraid of finding out the truth. God is real. The Bible is His word. The day will come when everyone will be faced with the truth. Be Ready!

Knowing the truth is not a burden. It will set you free to live the joy-filled life, Christ wants for you.

Jesus: The Living God

Buddha, Confucius, Muhammad are dead. You can visit their graves. Most have monuments at their gravesites. They are still buried jesusin the ground. You can visit the grave of Jesus Christ, but there is no monument because he is not there. The grave is empty! Jesus is alive! He is with the Father in heaven, as our intercessor to the Father.

Only Jesus rose from the grave and is alive today. Over 500 people saw Jesus after his resurrection. They witnessed the fact that he was alive and well after his crucifixion, death, and burial.

Not only does the Bible attest to the fact that Jesus rose from the grave, but there were secular writers at the time that acknowledged his resurrection.

Only Jesus loved us enough to die for our sins. Only Jesus said, “I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:3)

Are you putting your faith and hope in a dead god?  Can they do any more for you than a god made from wood, metal, or stone?

Or are you trusting your eternal future to the living God? The one who hears and answers your prayers. The one who loves you and only wants the best for you. The one who chose to die for our sins. The one who wants us to spend eternity with him in heaven.

Jesus is alive! Ask him to show himself to you. Be sincere. Be open and God will make himself known to you.

Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)

Jesus is waiting just for you.
