Tremulous skeins of destiny
flutter so ethereally
around me – but then I feel
its embrace is that of steel.
~The Book of Counted Sorrows
“Thy word is true from the beginning.”
“I stand witness as a former lifelong anti god “know it all” anti-god atheist who had fun debating philosophy & theology for a hobby – that as someone who tested Biblical Earth, I converted to “Scientific Fundamentalist Jesus Freak” instantly upon testing of various religious holy texts (only the Hebrew Scriptures have 100% accurate synchronized prophecies in fine detail, by the hundreds (or thousands) hundreds (or thousands) of years apart every single time.)
I stand corrected and humbled eternally, and in my time, I have woken up tens of thousands of others to Christ, and to YHWH, and to Biblical Earth using the Scientific Method to prove Biblical Earth, precisely as God told us. I witness there is no more powerful tool in a modern Bible Scholar’s toolkit than Prophecy, Biblical Flat Earth and the Seed War to wake people up to the truth of God, YHWH – our creator. Who wrote His name on every cell of our body…”
~Dustin Nemos, The Archivist
The Bible is the most influential book in the world, and millions of copies are sold every year. Yet skeptics today are questioning its accuracy and validity. Are there proofs of the Bible? Yes! And many of these proofs also provide powerful evidence that God exists.
God claims prophecy is a proof He is God
Isaiah, one of the most well-known prophets of God, recorded a prophecy that deals with God’s contending with Israel over their worship of idols―gods of Israel’s own making (Isaiah 44:9-20).
In this section we also find the following passage where God shows that prophecy―which often includes God’s announcement of future events―is a proof that He is God and not these pagan gods:
“‘Present your case,’ says the LORD. ‘Bring forth your strong reasons,’ says the King of Jacob. ‘Let them bring forth and show us what will happen; let them show the former things, what they were, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare to us things to come. Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods; yes, do good or do evil, that we may be dismayed and see it together. Indeed you are nothing, and your work is nothing; he who chooses you is an abomination’”.
21 Produce your cause, saith the Lord; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob.
22 Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
23 Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.
24 Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you.
GOD’S PROPHECIES OCCUR WITH 100% PRECISION ACCURACY
God confirmed, through the Prophet Isaiah, that His prophecies would SURELY take place.
Here’s a very, very, very, small sample, JUST 20 prophecies that prove God’s precision
accuracy concerning the Messiah, Jesus, who was to come:

This is a collection of our other posts concerning Scriptural Prophecies.
Unity of Scripture
Many of the Bible’s prophecies have already come true.
Prophecies concerning Babylon (Isaiah 13:19-22), Tyre (Ezekiel 26:3-5), Sidon (Ezekiel 28:21-23), Cyrus (Ezra 4:3; 5:13-14; Isaiah 44:28; 45:1), Medo Persia (Daniel 8:20-21), Greece (Daniel 8:20-21), Petra, Egypt, and Jesus’ birthplace Bethlehem (Micah 5:2) have all been fulfilled exactly as predicted. These fulfilled prophecies are an extremely strong argument for the trustworthiness of the Bible. They signify that we can trust the prophecies concerning the Antichrist and other end- time prophecies.
Another evidence of the Bible’s inspiration is found in its cohesive unity. In more than 3000 places, the Bible declares itself inspired. It does not contradict itself.
The Bible has survived centuries and even millennia. Despite all the attempts of Satan to hide it, destroy it, and make it inaccessible to the common person, the Bible has been preserved by God.
“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever” (Psalm 12:6-7). Jesus also promises that “heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35).
But what does the Bible have to say about its inspiration? From where does it say it gets its revelation?
2 Peter 1:21 says, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”
In fact, the Bible states emphatically that, “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).
When this was written, it was primarily referring to the Old Testament. Those that say that the Old Testament, or the Gospels, or other parts of the Bible are no longer applicable to us, are incorrect. The entire Bible exists for our edification. The Scriptures point to Jesus and His solution for our sin problem.
From Genesis to Revelation, Jesus is revealed in His various forms. In the Pentateuch (the first five books), Jesus is revealed. In Genesis, Christ is our Creator. In Exodus, Christ is our Sanctuary, our Haven, and our Deliverer. In Leviticus, Christ is our Sacrifice and Judge. In Numbers, Christ is our Guide. And in Deuteronomy, Christ is revealed as our Reward. In the books of Revelation and Daniel, we see Christ as our Judge. And we find these aspects of Christ revealed throughout the Bible.
Psalm 119:160 says, “Thy word is true from the beginning.”
In John 17:17 we read, “thy word is truth.”
The greatest evidence of the Bible’s inspiration is evidenced in the Christ it reveals and the changes in those who study it (John 5:39; Acts 4:12; Matthew 11:26-28).
Remember this, and shew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
Rob Skiba’s Prophetic End Times Timeline:
There are many books and passages of prophecy in the Bible. The book of Daniel contains the most detailed and astounding fulfilled prophecies that demonstrate the Bible is true and can be trusted. As a result, these prophecies help prove the absolute existence of the God who gave them.
The book of Daniel is also one of the most interesting and controversial in the Bible. It contains prophecies that are so precise that some who do not believe that God foretells the future cannot believe it was written in the sixth century B.C. Because of that, they do not believe it was really written by Daniel but claim it is a pious fraud written in the 160s B.C.
But the book clearly claims it was written by Daniel, who was taken captive from Jerusalem and wrote for many years during the sixth century B.C. Scholars such as Gleason L. Archer Jr. point out many linguistic and historical reasons to accept the authenticity of Daniel, as well as the flaws in the theories for a late date for the book (A Survey of Old Testament Introduction, 1974, pp. 379-403). Note, too, that Ezekiel, who was also taken captive by the Babylonians, mentions Daniel as a righteous man along with Noah and Job (Ezekiel 14:14).
If the book of Daniel were a fraud, the Jews would not have accepted it as Scripture. And Jesus Christ also accepted Daniel. He authoritatively quoted “Daniel the prophet” (Matthew 24:15), giving the ultimate Christian stamp of approval to his authenticity.
In this article we will see that the book of Daniel is a very inspiring book because of its fulfilled prophecies as well as its announcement that in the end God will establish His wonderful Kingdom.
Prophecy 1: Alexander the Great
An amazing prophecy in the book of Daniel is found in Daniel 8. Daniel saw a vision of a powerful ram that had pushed westward, northward and southward. Suddenly, from the west a goat with one large horn ran at the ram “with furious power” and “trampled him” (verses 5-7). Then the large horn was broken and four notable ones came up in its place (verse 8).
Daniel was given the meaning of the vision in verses 20-22: “The ram which you saw, having the two horns—they are the kings of Media and Persia. And the male goat is the kingdom of Greece. The large horn that is between its eyes is the first king. As for the broken horn and the four that stood up in its place, four kingdoms shall arise out of that nation, but not with its power.”
Biblical scholars recognize that the large horn from the kingdom of Greece is referring to Alexander the Great, its most powerful ruler. He rapidly conquered the Medo-Persian Empire and formed the Greco-Macedonian Empire. After Alexander died unexpectedly with no heirs, his kingdom was divided up among four of his generals into four different regions. A similar reference is made to Alexander the Great in Daniel 11:3-4.
John Gill, referring to Daniel 8:8 in his commentary, mentions the four-part division of Alexander’s kingdom: “Ptolemy was king of Egypt, to which belonged Lybia, Palestine, Arabia, and Caelesyria. Cassander was king of Macedonia and Greece. Lysimachus was king of Asia, to which belonged Thrace, Bithynia, and other places; and Seleucus was king of Syria, and of the eastern countries.”
Here is an accurate prediction of what would happen more than 200 years after Daniel recorded this prophecy. Remember, the book of Daniel was probably completed by 530 B.C., and this fourfold division of Alexander’s empire occurred about 323 B.C. This would be like someone predicting World War II in 1730!
God is the One who controls the future of this world and has the power to foretell future events.
Prophecy 2: The Abomination of Desolation
The prophecy about Antiochus IV Epiphanes desecrating God’s temple is very specific and was written hundreds of years before it happened.
Daniel 11:28-31 says: “While returning to his land with great riches, his heart shall be moved against the holy covenant; so he shall do damage and return to his own land. At the appointed time he shall return and go toward the south; but it shall not be like the former or the latter. For ships from Cyprus shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved, and return in rage against the holy covenant, and do damage. So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation.”
Jesus Christ refers to this prophecy in Matthew 24:15, where he speaks specifically of “Daniel the prophet” foretelling the “abomination of desolation.” Historically, this is referring to Antiochus IV who attacked Jerusalem around 169 B.C. This ruler of the Seleucid Empire was descended from one of Alexander the Great’s generals.
Nelson’s New Illustrated Bible Dictionary states: “Antiochus IV (175-164 B.C.), surnamed Epiphanes (God manifest) but called by his Jewish enemies Epimanes (madman). Antiochus IV was one of the cruelest rulers of all time. Like his father, Antiochus III the Great, he was enterprising and ambitious; however, he had a tendency to cruelty that bordered on madness. His primary aim—to unify his empire by spreading Greek civilization and culture—brought him into direct conflict with the Jews. This conflict broke into open rebellion in 167 B.C. Accounts of these conflicts are found in the apocryphal book of 2 Maccabees. The revolt began with Antiochus’ edict that sought to unite all the peoples of his kingdom in religion, law, and custom. The Jews were the only people who would not adhere to this edict. Antiochus issued regulations against observing the Sabbath, practicing circumcision, and keeping all food laws. These regulations were followed by the ‘Abomination of Desolation’ (Dan. 11:31)—the desecration of the altar of the burnt offering in the Temple in Jerusalem. Jews were forced to participate in heathen festivities and were put to death if they were caught with the Book of the Law in their possession” (“Antiochus,” emphasis added).
The accuracy of Daniel’s description of these events is not disputed. The temple was desecrated by Antiochus IV. This prophecy is strong evidence that the Bible is true and that there is a God who controls the destiny of mankind. Read more about this in our article “Abomination of Desolation: What Is It?”
Prophecy 3: The Roman Empire
Another amazing prophecy of Daniel concerns the coming of the Roman Empire. In Daniel 2 and 7 God reveals to Daniel that there will be four great world-ruling kingdoms that impact the people of God before the coming of God’s Kingdom.
Daniel 2:40 says: “And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others.”
The identity of this fourth kingdom is a problem for those who dispute the authenticity of Daniel.
Here is a prophecy that has not yet been fulfilled, and yet it is the most important of all. Humanity will not totally destroy itself and this planet. God is going to set up a kingdom that will last forever.According to those who don’t believe the book was written by Daniel, it was written in the second century B.C. However, the last empire prophesied is widely understood to be the Roman Empire, and it is described as being more powerful and stronger than the others.
Even if those who propose a late date were correct, the book of Daniel would still be prophetic by accurately predicting the coming of a fourth kingdom that would “crush all the others.” The Roman Empire didn’t conquer Syria and Palestine until around 65 B.C. This is still 100 years after the time liberal scholars suppose the book of Daniel was written.
The Roman Empire was greater, stronger and lasted longer than the previous empires. Skeptics have no explanation for the accuracy of this prediction! The obvious conclusion is that the book of Daniel was written by someone who had been given supernatural revelation of a framework of future events.
For God, foretelling events 500 years into the future is no harder than predicting 100 years. All of these fulfilled prophecies help confirm that the book of Daniel was not a fraud but truly was written by Daniel in the sixth century B.C. as it claims.
Prophecy 4: The Kingdom of God
Daniel 2:44 states: “And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.”
Here is a prophecy that has not yet been fulfilled, and yet it is the most important of all. Humanity will not totally destroy itself and this planet. God is going to set up a kingdom that will last forever. It will consume all revivals of the evil systems and self-serving human governments that exist at the return of Jesus Christ.
This prophecy brings hope to a world that is so negative and combative. Wars will end (Micah 4:3); animals will have their nature changed (Isaiah 11:6-9); and the deserts of the earth will become fruitful fields (Isaiah 41:18; Isaiah 35:1-7). What mankind has been seeking for thousands of years will finally come to pass—a time of just rulers, improved weather conditions and healing of the sick and afflicted.
As this article has demonstrated, prophecy is indeed a proof of God’s existence and the accuracy of His book, the Holy Bible. We can have confidence that in the end, the Kingdom of God will be established and an entirely new world will come.

Are God’s prophecies true?
The Bible contains numerous prophecies from God that were written hundreds of years before their fulfillment, events that have already occurred and can be documented in history, both biblical and secular. Other prophecies recorded in Scripture are for the future and contain amazing details about events that are yet to occur.
God said in the book of the prophet Isaiah: “I am God, and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand’” (Isaiah 46:9-10, emphasis added throughout).
One of God’s attributes is the ability to predict the future and make sure it comes to pass.
In Isaiah God contrasted Himself with the lifeless idols that so many nations worshipped: “‘Present your case,’ says the LORD. ‘Bring forth your strong reasons,’ says the King of Jacob. ‘Let them bring forth and show us what will happen; let them show the former things, what they were, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare to us things to come. Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods; yes, do good or do evil, that we may be dismayed and see it together’” (Isaiah 41:21-23).
God’s test of the lifeless idols was, in essence, “Tell us what will happen in the future so we can prove whether you are gods.” Idols cannot predict the future, but God can.
God communicated His words to His prophets, as explained by the prophet Amos: “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). These prophecies were spoken by His prophets and written down in the Bible.
Let’s look at just a few of these prophecies in the Bible that predicted the first coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Prophecies about Jesus Christ
Author Josh McDowell identifies 61 fulfilled prophecies concerning Jesus Christ’s birth, life and death in the Bible (The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict, pp. 168-192). For example:
He would be born in Bethlehem.
The prophet Micah, writing approximately 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ, foretold His birthplace.
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting” (Micah 5:2).
The fulfillment: “Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea” (Matthew 2:1).
He was to enter Jerusalem on a donkey.
The original prophecy: “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey” (Zechariah 9:9).
The fulfillment: “Then they brought him [a colt] to Jesus. And they threw their own clothes on the colt, and they set Jesus on him. And as He went, many spread their clothes on the road. Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying, ‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!’” (Luke 19:35-38).
He would be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver.
Thirty pieces of silver would be the price of betrayal and the cost of the potter’s field used to bury Judas after he hung himself. “Then I said to them, ‘If it is agreeable to you, give me my wages; and if not, refrain.’ So they weighed out for my wages thirty pieces of silver. … So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the LORD for the potter” (Zechariah 11:12-13).
The fulfillment of this occurred just before Jesus’ crucifixion. “‘What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?’ And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver” (Matthew 26:15).
After Judas betrayed Jesus Christ, he tried to give the money back to the chief priests and elders, but they wouldn’t take it. “Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself. But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, ‘It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are the price of blood.’ And they consulted together and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in” (Matthew 27:5-7).
His garments would be parted and lots cast.
The original prophecy: “They divide My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots” (Psalm 22:18).
The fulfillment: “Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece. They said, … ‘Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be’” (John 19:23-24).
The garments were parted among the soldiers, but the tunic was awarded to one soldier by the casting of lots.
