Old Testament and New Testament

 

       

      God used an important divine inspiration to prove to us that our Holy Scriptures contains truth... God used prophecy; this is the ability predict the future. Nobody else can do this, because only God is the creator of time and only God is above time to know what will happen in the future.

      The Old Testament was written hundreds, even thousands, of years before the time of Jesus.

      Arguably, the most important prophecy given to us was the prediction that Jesus will come to earth to save us. There are hundreds of biblical predictions concerning the birth, life, and death of Jesus in the Old Testament and which have been realised and confirmed in the New Testament. Below are just a few of them which you may find familiar...

      Prophecy is God's signature on the scriptures. So christians can rejoice, because God came to earth to save us. And we knew He would... We knew a thousand years before it happened.

      No other book in the history of the world can approach the impact of the Bible. It has transformed countless lives. It has inspired great works of art, music and literature. The very wealthy have drawn success secrets from its pages; the most poor have found comfort and challenge in its words. And it is the basis for much of "civil" society in many parts of the globe.
