The Theology of the Bible

Lesson Three

As was concluded in lesson 2 of this study, one of the greater test of the character and integrity of the Scriptures is that of fulfilled Bible prophecy. For example, the prophecies concerning the Nation of Israel and their global dispersion Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Jeremiah 15:4; 16:13; Hosea 3:4 & Ezekiel 36 - 37.  The overthrow of Samaria while Judah is preserved I Kings 14:15; Isaiah 7:6-8 & Hosea 1:6. Judah/Jerusalem being rescued from Assyria just to fall into the captivity of the Babylonians Isaiah 39:6 & Jeremiah 25:9-12. The final destruction of Samaria Micah 1:6-9. The destruction of Jerusalem was to be followed by restoration Jeremiah 29:10-14. The restoration of Judah called by name Isaiah 44:28 & 45:1. The overthrow of Babylon by the Medes & Persians Isaiah 21:2 & Daniel 5:28. The rebuild of Jerusalem Isaiah 44:28.


The prophecies of the Gentile nations of Babylon, Tyre, Egypt, Ammon, Moab, Edom & Philistia Isaiah 13-23 & Jeremiah 46-51. The prophecies concerning the great world empires Daniel 2 & 7.


Then there are other prophecies in the Bible to consider. In the last days increase on knowledge and travel Daniel 12:4. The escalations of wars Matthew 24:6. The increase of wickedness II Timothy 3:1-13. The preservation of the Jewish remnant Romans 11:1-5 & 25-32. The promise of Israel to return to their land just before Messiah returns Ezekiel 36 & 37. Dreams, prophecies & visions that could only be given by God.


We see where God spoke to Moses Exodus 14:1; Leviticus 4:1; Numbers 4:1 & Deuteronomy 32:48. Moses was commanded by God to write what God told him Exodus 17:14; 34:27; Exodus 24:4; 34:28; Numbers 33:2; Deuteronomy 31:9 & 22-24. God would speak to the prophets Isaiah 1:2; 7:3; 43:1; Jeremiah 11:1; Ezekiel 1:3; Hosea 1:1 & Joel 1:1.


God also spoke to the New Testament writers I Corinthians 14:37; I Thessalonians 2:13; Galatians 1:8; I John 5:10; II Peter 3:2 & Hebrews 2:1-4.


The evidence is overwhelming. Our God gave all prophetic Scriptures directly to the writers who in turn wrote it down.

II Timothy 3:16-17 … All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: [17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
