The Reality of the Bible in Our Days
Is the Bible real to the point that we must obey and do everything it says?
That is a question many people will like to get an answer to today.
Many are looking for physical proofs or at least a voice or sign from God, which will show to them that the Bible is real.
God has His own way of doing things, even though He will do everything possible within the limit of the grace He has given unto us to make us to know Him, He will never go beyond His way.
The Bible is God’s word given unto us to guide us through our journey in life, with the bible in our heart we will not be stranded, nor miss our way in this world.
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
There are lots of things we can see around us today that point to the reality of the bible, some of them are;
- History of events recorded in the Bible: It is only the Bible that has been able to give a very good account of the creation of the world, with everything in it. Not even those who pushed forward the theory of the big bang can give a credible explanation of their theory.
- Many of the events and places recorded in the bible have been discovered to be so by archaeological findings, further proofing the Bible to be true.
- Prophecies that were said in the bible came to pass: One notable prophecy among the lot was that of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ through the Prophet Micah
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. (Micah 5:2).
This was proved to be right, not only because it was exactly so, when King Herod heard about the birth of the new King He enquired from the Jewish scribes of his days, and they told him, after searching through the Scripture that in Bethlehem of Judah. Many of the prophecies in the bible revealed the rise and fall of governments, inventions of different machines and processes, and increase in knowledge which have come to pass.
The changes that the Bible has brought upon lives that have had real encounter with the living word is also another proof. There’s no other materials that man has access To, that has been able to bring such a tremendous change upon the lives and affairs of man like the Bible.
All over the world are people who have come to put their trust under the power and efficacy of the world by trusting in it, and doing what it says, indeed even the enemies of God has come to agree that there is power in the word.
Many can testify to the miracle of peace, salvation, deliverance, provision, healing, and different supernatural encounters through the application of the word.
That the word of God is real is no more a doubt, for it is even more real than the heaven and the earth.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. (Matthew 24:35).
Allow the reality of the bible to move you closer to your heavenly Father!
