Bible Prophecy has been in existence for thousands of years. World History was foretold in the Book of Daniel over 500 years before events took place. The Dead Sea Scrolls discovery validated the authenticity of scriptures.
There are five main principles man should understand about the Bible and its prophetic nature.
1. God has used the Bible to Communicate to man through His Prophets for thousands of years.
2. The Bible Interprets itself.
New King James Version (NKJV)
9 “Whom will he teach knowledge?
And whom will he make to understand the message?
Those just weaned from milk?
Those just drawn from the breasts?
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept,
Line upon line, line upon line,
Here a little, there a little.”
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue
He will speak to this people.
2 Timothy 3:16
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
3. The Bible is Predictive.
4. The Bible Is Moral and Redemptive. God desires to save all mankind.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
5. The Bible Strengthens Our Faith. The Bible is Life Changing.
