There are so many issues circulating around the internet questioning the authenticity of the Bible. Well, here’s the catch. If there is a verse in the Bible that cannot be refuted, then it is the wisdom of God not man. We can read a lot of publications acknowledging the feat of the purported seer Nostradamus for having predicted world events which allegedly did come to pass. The problem with Nostradamus’ prediction, however, is that it was published after the event took place not before it happened. The Bible on the other hand has records of amazing facts which cannot be contradicted, and written long before they happen.
In Job 26:7 it is written, “He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; He suspends the earth over nothing.” How could have Job known this circa 4,000 years ago when the people then did not even have an idea how to make a kite? Gravity was an unknown phenomenon until Sir Isaac Newton.
In the ancient times, the prevalent concept was that the earth was flat until it was proven false when the surviving ships of Magellan’s flotilla had returned to Spain via the other side of the earth thereby circumnavigating the globe. But eons of years before the flat earth concept was born, the prophet Isaiah had written, “He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth…” (Isaiah 40:22).
Nobody can exactly predict what will happen tomorrow. But the prophet Nahum had correctly written about the present times in Nahum 2:4 which states, “The chariots storm through the streets, rushing back and forth through the squares. They look like flaming torches; they dart about like lightning.” This is a vivid description of the today’s vehicles like the motorcycles, cars, and buses. Nahum called them chariots because the names of these modern vehicles were not known to him then.
No other book in all the world, religious or otherwise, contains facts as amazing as that of the Bible. How could these Biblical writers have known these irrefutable facts had not God told them? These are undeniable proofs that the Bible is truly God’s word.
