Does God Really Exist?Indirect evidence is often reliably depended upon to establish the veracity of a fact. For instance, it's been utilized to prove that the Sun produces energy through nuclear fusion, hydrogen exists on it and that the Earth has an iron core. In like manner, the fact that not a single one of fulfilled Bible prophecies has ever been wrong constitutes irrefutable indirect evidence for the existence of it's author, Jehovah God.
Indeed, for millions of rational people the world over, the fact that all of the fulfilled prophecies the Bible contains were accurate predictions of future events constitutes the greatest evidence of all of the Bible's divine origin and the necessary existence of it's Magnificent Author, God. No other writings, religious or otherwise, shares this distinct mark of divine authorship.
Here are some preeminent examples of these extraordinary and precise prophecies:
Only the Bible reveals that our Creator has a personal name, Jehovah, and informs us that He is “abundant in loving-kindness.” (Ex. 34:6) “Give thanks to Jehovah, you people, for he is good; for his loving-kindness is to time indefinite.” (Psalm 118:1, 29) “[God] is kind toward the unthankful and wicked,” states Luke 6:35. “He makes his sun rise upon wicked people and good and makes it rain upon righteous people and unrighteous.” (Matt. 5:45) “Your loving-kindness, O Jehovah,” sang the psalmist, “has filled the earth.” (Ps. 119:64) The sc
For instance, Jehovah protected and fed the Israelites while they spent 40 years in the wilderness. In the Promised Land, God provided judges to rescue them from their enemies and to bring them back to true worship. Because Jehovah stuck with them through good times and bad during all those centuries, he could tell the nation: “With a love to time indefinite I have loved you. That is why I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”—Jer. 31:3.
Only the Bible informs us that Jehovah goes beyond speaking about forgiveness. He acts accordingly. Jehovah used Jeremiah to exhort: “Do return, O renegade Israel . . . I shall not have my face drop angrily upon you people . . . I shall not stay resentful to time indefinite.” (Jer. 3:12) God does not feel lingering anger or bitterness toward any of his people whom he has forgiven. Rather, though a wrong has been committed, Jehovah wants to repair the damaged relationship. Despite the sins a person may have committed, if that sinner truly repents and seeks God’s forgiveness, Jehovah will ‘bring him back’ to His favor and blessing. (Jer. 15:19)
Consider the example of King David of ancient Israel, who sang: “[Jehovah] is forgiving all your error, [he] is healing all your maladies.” How David must have appreciated being shown forgiveness for his sin with Bath-sheba and for murdering her husband. He extolled Jehovah, saying: “As the heavens are higher than the earth, his loving-kindness is superior toward those fearing him.” (Ps. 103:3, 11)
Everything you need to know about your loving Creator and how to develop a close personal relationship with Him is right there in the Bible.
