“When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.” (Deut 18:22)
If God says something, it will stand the test of time. Unfettered by the shortsightedness of humanity, God keeps His promises, properly sees the future, and orchestrates His plans with exceptional precision.
So, how do you know God wrote the Bible? It is a book full of prophecies. Specific prophecies that are finely-tuned in their specificity. Ezekiel 26 describes the fall of the nation of Tyre hundreds of years in advance. Isaiah 40:22 describes a spherical earth even while flat-earthers still debate the subject today. And Psalms 22:16 and Zechariah 12:10 describe the crucifixion of Jesus… before crucifixion had been invented. No fortune cookie prophecies for God – specifics are in and details matter.
No other religious document holds up to the scrutiny God’s Word faces. So next time you read the text, remember that human philosophies come and go – don’t be afraid of the modern prophets of humanism and materialism. Like all false prophets, they will come and go.
“The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.”
