THE WORD Part 3: How To know The Bible Is True

September 26, 2021

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 

2 Timothy 3:16-17

so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 

Matthew 24:351. It is historically accurate. 

  1. Eyewitness Accounts
  2. Recorded and copied with extreme care.
  3. Archaeological confirmation

For the word of the LORD is right and true. 

Psalm 33:42. It is scientifically accurate. 

Let every created thing give praise to the LORD, for he issued his command, and they came into being. He set them in place forever and ever. His decree will never be revoked. 

Psalm 148:5-6 NLT

The Earth was flat. 

 God sits enthroned above the circle of the earth. 

Isaiah 40:22

The Earth has to be held up.

He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing

Job 26:7

The number of stars could be counted.

…the stars of the sky cannot be counted

Jeremiah 33:22 NLT

Too much blood will make you sick. 

…for the life of the body is in its blood

Leviticus 17:11 NLT

And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times. 

Psalm 12:6

3. It is prophetically accurate. 

One person fulfilling 8 prophesies is 1 in 10/17

(100,000,000,000,000,000)

One person fulfilling 16 prophesies is 1 in 10/45

One person fulfilling 48 prophesies is 1 in 10/157

For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 

2 Peter 1:21

 “But this is all happening to fulfill the words of the prophets as recorded in the Scriptures.” 

Matthew 26:56 NLT

The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.” 

Revelation 22:6

It takes more faith to believe the prophesies of the Bible are coincidence than to believe that God planned them. 4. It is thematically unified. 

And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. 

Luke 24:275. It is trusted by Jesus. 

For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen

Matthew 5:18

will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished

Matthew 5:18

If you believe what you like in th Bible but don’t believe what you don’t like, it’s not the Bible that you trust but yourself. 

6. It has survived all attacks. 

The Bible is the most despised, derided, denied, disputed, dissected, debated, outlawed and destroyed book every. 

“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” 

1 Peter 1:24-25

“Within 100 years the Bible will be forgotten.

~Voltaire

What is going to be the final authority in my life?

The Word or the world?

7. It has power to transform

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

John 8:31-32
