This morning on telly, the weather presenter rather tongue-in-cheek said ‘I'm 90 percent right—10 percent of the time.’ Of course, that's a ridiculous statement, but some people resort to that type of gobbledegook to cover up a poor record. As proof, all you have to do is listen to some of our world leaders!

However, if you look deep into the Bible you’ll find its prophetic record is extremely accurate. Let's look at a few examples.

The Lord Jesus was born in the city of Bethlehem (Micah 5:2) of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14) at the time specified (Daniel 9:25). Infants in Bethlehem were massacred as prophesied (Jeremiah 31:15). Jesus went down into Egypt and returned (Hosea 11:1). Isaiah foretold Christ's ministry in Galilee (Isaiah 9:1-2). Zechariah predicted His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on a colt (Zechariah 9:9) and His betrayal for 30 pieces of silver (11:12-13). David had never seen a Roman crucifixion, yet in Psalm 22, under divine inspiration, he penned a graphic portrayal of Jesus' death. Isaiah 53 gives a detailed picture of our Lord's rejection, mistreatment, death, and burial. These few prophecies (and there are many more) should impress us with the reliability of the Bible.

As all these predictions have been fulfilled, let us also accept with some reasonable confidence what the Bible says about the future.

He is with you. Always. Until the end of time.

Heavenly Father, help us to trust in Your unchanging word. Though all things shall pass away, Your Word shall stand forever. Amen
