One Hundred Percent Right


It's amazing what can be done with statistics. By a clever arrangement of the facts, framed in a shrewdly worded context, it is possible to make even a poor situation sound good. For example, a weatherman once boasted, "I'm 90% right - 10% of the time!" His claim sounds quite impressive until it is analyzed. He needed such a manipulation of statistics to cover up his poor record.

Such manipulation, however, is not necessary with the Bible. Its predictions are 100% right. There's no need for double talk when it comes to the Scriptures.

The Lord Jesus was born in the city of Bethlehem as prophesied by Micah (5:2); born of a virgin according to Isaiah (7:14); at the time specified by Daniel (9:25). Infants in Bethlehem were massacred as foretold by Jeremiah (31:15). Jesus went down into Egypt and returned as prophesied by Hosea (11:1); Isaiah foretold His ministry in Galilee (9:1-2); Zechariah predicted His triumphal entry into Jerusalem riding upon a colt (9:9), His betrayal for 30 pieces of silver (11:12), and the return of this money for the purchase of a potter's field (11:13). David lived 1,000 years before the birth of Christ and had never seen a Roman crucifixion, yet in Psalm 22, he penned under divine inspiration a graphic portrayal of the death the Lord Jesus suffered when he died upon a Roman cross. Isaiah 53 also gives us a detailed picture of our Lord's rejection and death.

These few prophecies alone should impress the worst of skeptics with the reliability of the Bible. Since these prediction have all been fulfilled to the smalle+st detail let us also accept with confidence that which the Bible says about the way of salvation the way to heaven.

"To Him ( the Lord Jesus Christ) give all the prophets witness, that through His Name Whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins" (Acts 10:43).

"If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart, that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be SAVED" (Romans. 10:9).

Remember that the Bible is 100% right - all of the time.
