Accuracy of the Bible Prophecies
Many people say that the Bible is just a compilation of stories written by ordinary men.
They say that it is just a book of fiction because the mysteries described in the Bible are just the
product of human creativity and imagination. The good thing is that there are records in history
and science that can prove that what the Bible say are true and they will come to pass, and these
can prove that the Bible is indeed the word of God.
First, history can prove that the prophecies foretold in the book of Daniel happened in
correct sequence. Daniel interpreted the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar regarding a great image.
It has head of gold which Daniel said as the kingdom of Babylon, silver torso which is kingdom
of Medo-Persia, bronze thigh which is kingdom of Greece, iron legs which is the Roman Empire,
and feet that looks like mixture of clay and iron which is the divided kingdoms of Europe.
According to history, the kingdom of Babylon, ruled by king Belshazzar, son of Nebuchadnezzar,
ended after the Medo-Persian troops conquered Babylon by passing through a passage created by
the invading troops. Then, the Grecian kingdom conquered Medo-Persia thru the leadership of
Alexander the Great. When Alexander the Great died, the Grecian Empire weakened and was
defeated by the Roman Empire. After many years of the reign of Roman Empire, some other
kingdoms arose and started fighting with each other, thus, the Roman Empire was divided into
ten (10) kingdoms. The ten kingdoms were: 1. Frank (France), 2. Suevi (Portugal), 3. Vandal
(exterminated), 4. Burgundy (Switzerland), 5. Visigoth (Spain), 6. Anglo-Saxon (England), 7.
Ostrogoth (exterminated), 8. Lombard (Italy), 9. Heruli (exterminated), and 10. Alemani
(Germany). These are just some of the prophecies written in the Bible even before they
happened.
Another evidence to support the accuracy of the Bible is the occurrence of the
unexplained phenomena stated in the book of prophecies. In Matthew 24:29, Jesus foretold that
“the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light”. In Joel 2:31, it is also stated that
“The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day
of the Lord comes.” The Bibleuniverse.com has records to prove the fulfillment of these
