"THE BIBLE: The one book that has had more impact on men and nations than all other books Treaties, Documents, etc. combined, since the beginning of time."
-William Lyon Phelps
"Reading and studying God's Word gets the person into the Word, but memorizing it gets the Word into the person, and there it becomes a major directive force in the spiritual unfolding and development of God's new creation."
Another proof that the Bible is GOD'S Book is by the fulfilled prophecies (that is that the Old Testament prophets predicted in exact detail things that would and did take place thousands of years later) for example, the birth, life, death and resurrection of CHRIST were all foretold (prophesied) in the Old Testament down to the place where CHRIST was born - Micah 5:2 - that CHRIST would be born of a virgin - Isaiah 7:14 - that He would be betrayed for thirty pieces of silver - Zechariah 11:12-13 - His cry from the cross was quoted in Psalm 22, "My God, why hast thou forsaken me." The resurrection of His body from the grave is foretold in Psalm 16:10. There is no way that these prophecies and their fulfillment (plus thousands of others) could have been known and written except through the foreknowledge of God. Truly the Bible was God Breathed!!!
You may think that the Bible is "old-fashioned", out of date. NO!!! The Bible is in step with our times. Read it and you will see what is happening today!!
A microfilm packet containing Genesis 1:1 in sixteen languages and a complete Bible were deposited on the moon by Apollo 14 LEM Commander Edgar Mitchell.
The Gideons presented the first three astronauts with New Testaments which they took on the journey to the moon. Commander Borman took along his personal copy of the Bible. The first ten verses of Genesis on Creation were read by the astronauts on Christmas Eve as the Bible passed or floated from man to man that's about as modern as you can get in this space age.
It is very important to own a good Bible. One with good readable print. Your copy of the Bible will be a life-long friend. Mark and underscore its precious promises.
The Bible is the only source from which we can find the answers to man's three most important questions:
1. Where did I come from?1. Where did I come from?
(Genesis 1:27): "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created He Him; male and female created He them."
2. Why am I here?
3. Where am I going?
