Word of God

The Bible states, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”

As we study the wonders of the universe, the intricate details of a beautiful flower, the amazing precision of the stars and planets in their courses, or the life systems in the human anatomy that allow us to live and breathe, we cannot help but conclude that behind all this design there must be a designer. If we believe that there is a God that created us, then it stands to reason that He would want to communicate with His creation. If God is Holy and just, then there is a moral absolute in the universe and a punishment for those who violate those absolutes. If He is all-powerful then He has the means to judge and punish us. However, by considering the universe we can also learn that God is interested in our good and loves us. The earth is designed to sustain us, and it’s great beauty reveals that our creator cares about us. If this is true then not only would He provide for our physical needs but also for our spiritual needs. And if God is so gracious as to provide for our spiritual need, it stands to reason that He would communicate this to man.

Out of all the religious writings on earth that claim to be from God, only one truly passes the test. . .the Bible. Indeed it is a supernatural book! It is made up of 66 separate books. Penned by some 40 human authors, many of whom never knew each other. They had different languages, lived in different locations and had different occupations. Their writings span a period of approximately 1500 years, and yet as we read the Bible, it reveals itself as one book. One theme, one purpose, one message.

It has been supernaturally preserved down through the ages. Countless, enemies have risen up against it, yet it endures, and continues to be the world’s bestseller. The fact that you are reading this article right now, is a result of God’s protection of His word and His desire for you to know His love for you.

In addition to these amazing facts, is the overwhelming amount of fulfilled prophecies contained in the Bible. From Jesus’ place of birth to the way He would die, all is predicted with 100% accuracy. There is no book like the Bible. It is God’s word to us explaining the provision He has made for our greatest need of all, our need of a Saviour!
