First of all, the Bible is the inspired Word of God and it is the absolute truth despite the fact that not everyone chooses to believe in it. Some people over the years have tried to destroy this book and they could not. It is not because there are millions and millions of copies of the Bible. This book cannot be destroyed because it is the infallible, inspired Word of God. Yet, many do not believe that this book is the truth. Some think it is a fiction book, especially the stories in the Old Testament.
I was raised in a Christian home, grew up in church and always have heard sermons from the Bible. To this day, I am a follower of Christ, because I have had my own experience with God. There are many people who were raised in the church like I was, yet they chose a different path in life. So, I cannot say that I was raised with all of this and it just became a part of my life.
We are living in very treacherous times right now. Even if I did not believe in the Bible, I think I would have changed my mind eventually. The main reason is because everything that the Bible has said is happening right now in our world. All you have to do is watch the news to see what is going on.
In Matthew chapter 24, Jesus talks about signs for us to look out for right before His return to take all believers to heaven. Everything mentioned in this chapter and other parts of the Bible is currently taking place. Some of the signs are earthquakes, pestilences, wars and rumors of wars. We are seeing this more than ever before. I have never counted so many earthquakes in one year’s time period. There is a verse that mentions the waves and seas will roar. We have seen this with the tsunami in Japan recently and in Indonesia a few years ago.
We have been hearing of a number of pestilences such as bed bugs. Recently in the news, a new infection has developed in 36 states that is worse than MRSA. Doctors do not know how to treat it and not even antibiotics are helpful.
We definitely are hearing of wars and rumors of wars currently taking place. In the book of Ezekiel, it speaks about nations coming up against Israel. For years, some nations have wanted to wipe them right off of the map. This war will take place according to the Bible and the whole world can see this coming from now. The chapter goes on to say how God will come to Isreal’s defense. We as believers, will not be here to witness this because we will be taken from this earth before this happens.
These are just a few things but there are so many more events and things that the Bible mentions that have either happened or is occurring right now. So, I don’t know how anybody can say that the Bible is not a true book.
According to the Bible, the next huge event to take place will be the rapture of all believers. This will be happening very soon because everything that was to take place before Jesus’ coming, is occurring now. We could be moments away from seeing Jesus returning in the clouds.
If you are one of those people that do not believe in the Bible, you need to take another look at it before it’s too late. There is no reason to not believe in it but every reason to believe that it’s true. What more evidence do you need that it’s a real book? The Bible was written thousands of years ago and all these things were predicted.
Time is running out. The Bible says that “Jesus is the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me.” You must accept Him as Lord and Savior, repent of your sins and believe that He died on the cross for your sins and mine so we can have eternal life. Then heaven will be your eternal home. If not, hell will be your eternal home. Accept Christ today!
