'Faith' is not believing something despite the facts - on the contrary - Biblical faith is a matter of believing the facts.

GROWING CONFIDENCE IN GOD’S WORD BECAUSE OF BIBLE PROPHECY

There are several reasons why we can have confidence that the Bible is truly God’s divinely inspired, infallible, inerrant, Word to mankind. It is historically verifiable, it is experientially testable, it is philosophically credible, but perhaps one of the greatest evidences for the Bible being the divinely inspired Word of God, is fulfilled prophecy.

When the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1946, it gave the world irrefutable proof that the contents of the Book of Isaiah were undoubtedly written before the birth of Christ. This means that the passages of detailed prophecies with Isaiah about the coming Messiah must have been written before the Messiah actually came. 

¶ Behold, my servant shall act wisely;
he shall be high and lifted up,
and shall be exalted.
As many were astonished at you—
his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,
and his form beyond that of the children of mankind—

Isaiah 52:13-14

The Isaiah 52-53 passage contains 40 prophetic details about the coming Messiah which were all precisely fulfilled by Jesus.

But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.

Isaiah 53:5

When we look at what Christ Himself prophesied, particularly as it related to the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple by 70AD, the amount of detail on the public record before it was precisely happened is stunning! [Watch] Bible prophecy which can be demonstrably shown to be fulfilled is an extremely persuasive evidence of the Bible’s divine inspiration and [continue].

Could we be in the ‘End Times’?

Wars, earthquakes, floods, and famines have long been considered the traits of what many believe to be the Biblical description of the "end times". Added to this is what many understand to be the predictions of increased apostasy, the rise in persecution, the deterioration of society's morals, and the increased compromise and lukewarmness of the Church. And surely, if...

What The Bible Says About The Sabbath

THE RELEVANCE OF THE SABBATH FOR TODAY  God's Word tells us that from the beginning He established a "week" and set aside one day out of this seven day cycle to be for rest and reflection - the Sabbath. On that day the people were to respect and honor God by resting from regular activity (such as work activities) and participating in public worship. This was done as a...

The Two Witnesses Of Revelation

I was listening to a well-known Texan radio preacher declare that very soon the whole world was going to be thrust into turmoil with the rise of a global dictator (known as the “Anti-christ”, according to this preacher) who will establish a one-world government and begin the greatest era of persecution against Jewish people ever witnessed. I used to regard this type of teaching as irrelevant guess-work, but I now regard this “theology” as incredibly toxic and dangerous. Then to my horror he went on to announce that this dictator would be challenged by two revitalised witnesses who would capture the attention of the whole world by their prophesying and miraculous powers- even being publicly slain then resurrected! There are of course millions of Christians who have innocently accepted this new theology without ever realising that this is an impossible interpretation of Revelation 11.

5 Proofs For The Existence Of God

Some people feel that acceptance of God is entirely a matter of faith. But the Scriptures actually claim that it is the truth which is the basis for this faith (Rom. 10:17). Truth is only truth if it is objective truth, that is, it is true for everyone regardless of time or circumstances. Thus, God is either true (and there can be objective proofs to support this), or He is not true and only subjective ‘truth’ can be offered for ‘proof’.

The Heavens Shall Melt

Has the Law been accomplished? Presumably. Christ said earlier in Matthew 5:17 that this was one of the reasons why He came: to fulfil the Law. But has “heaven and earth” been done away with? How we understand this statement has a great bearing on how we understand the statement in 2Peter 3:12.
