How we know the Bible is true?

Because Biblical predictions have come true.

The Bible calls the prophecies

 

We add this supplement to help convince readers of the authenticity and reliability of the Bible - and to warn of what is to come.

The Bible uses the word prophecy to describe the many predictions that have been made over the last 6000 years.

There are 738 significant predictions in the Bible. Up to this point in time, 720 of these have come about, just as predicted. The remaining 18 are still to come.

The Bible has been 100% accurate, unlike the predictions of clairvoyants and others who attempt to predict the future. People such as Nostradamus and in later times, Jeanne Dixon, have never been able to predict with this accuracy.

The Bible is never wrong. The question for readers is - if the Bible has predicted the first 720 of these prophecies with pin point accuracy, what are the chances of the remaining 18 coming true? The answer is obvious.

To demonstrate this accuracy, here are a smattering of the 720 that have come true - and some of those that will. These are taken from Willmington, pages 906 to 912.

Some of these are even about secular history, showing that the Bible covers some events outside the primary spectrum of Scripture. Even readers with only a scant knowledge of Scripture will recognize many of these events. These have been listed in two parts.

Firstly, those events which are still to come and secondly those events which have already occurred.

 

First - those events still to come.
