There is probably no greater proof of the Bibleâ€™s reliability than biblical prophecy!
It has been estimated that two-thirds of the Bible is prophetic either in type, symbol or direct statement. Interestingly, none of the so-called holy books and sacred writings of the worldâ€™s other religions contain a single line of prophecy. How do we explain this abundance of prophecy in the Holy Bible and absence of it in all other â€œholy booksâ€?
The answer to the above question is obvious. If the uninspired authors of the worldâ€™s other â€œholy booksâ€ had attempted to predict the future their predictions would have proven untrue. As a result, they would have been exposed as frauds, their writings as fictitious, and their teachings as false. To have any hope of perpetrating their religious ruse upon the masses these false prophets had to steer clear of prophecy, abdicating its lofty sphere to Godâ€™s true seersâ€” the divinely inspired authors of Scripture.
The Bible is proven to be the Word of God by the fact that it alone contains prophecy. Prophecyâ€™s peculiarity to the Bible proves that the Holy Bible is the worldâ€™s only holy book. All other â€œholy booksâ€ are exposed as unholy frauds by the absence of prophecy from their pages.
