Biblical Prophecy (7 of 40)
Series: Book You Can Trust
What is the simplest and yet most profound evidence the Bible offers? Fulfilled Biblical prophecy. What an irrefutable verification reserved to the Judeo-Christian Scriptures alone. Prophecy is the missing element in all other sacred scriptures of the world's religions, It is not to be found in them, by contrast prophecy comprises about one third of the Scriptures!
What Does the Word Prophesy Mean?
When we say PROPHESY we mean detailed, specific descriptions of future events.
Not a few, hundreds.
Not close calls, fulfilled to the letter.
Not historical accounts as they unfolded, but prophesies written centuries, many centuries before they took place.
Because of the undeniable verification of history pre-written by God, may I impress upon your heart that the book you hold in your hands is unlike any other in the universe? And with that truth deeply upon our hearts, in the days ahead, shouldn't we treat it differently, read it diligently, wait before it expectantly, and from it learn to live triumphantly?
Last week we learned about PROPHECIES OF JESUS CHRIST. There are no less than 300 specific prophecies in the Scriptures about our Lord Jesus Christ.
But this week lets look at FIVE EVENTS GOD DIRECTED AND FORETOLD THAT CHANGED THE COURSE OF THE WORLD!
God writes history in advance. To get a frame of reference imagine with me that in 1700, somewhere in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, an unknown religious writer wrote about a future ruler. This ruler:
Would come to power in Europe
Would take control of a land called Germany [in 1700 it was called Prussia]
Would be named Adolph Hitler
Would conquer the continent
And would be defeated by the Allied Forces
Now notice the year was 1700 and there was no
Allied Forces, America was a Colony of Britain
There was barely a Germany and Hitler was not to be born for 200 years!
