- Nearly a third of the Bible is made up of prophecies foretelling future events.
- The hundreds of fulfilled prophecies found in Scripture are some of the best evidence for its divine inspiration.
- The Bible contains hundreds of prophecies relating to individuals, cities, nations, and empires; all of which were historically fulfilled (Ex. Jeremiah 25:11-12; Isaiah 44:28; Ezekiel 26:3-14).
- The Old Testament contains hundreds of prophecies concerning the coming of the messiah and the nature of his ministry; all of which were fulfilled by Jesus Christ (Ex. Micah 5:2; Isaiah 7:14; 2 Samuel 7:12-13).
- Some of the greatest prophecies in Scripture still await their fulfillment, such as the rapture of the church, the second coming of Jesus Christ, and the Lord’s millennial reign (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 24; Revelation 20:4-6).
