If we have Studied the Word of God we would have discovered that there are Statements and much Prophecy that only God could have known when He Inspired Man to write the Bible. Such as the World was Round when at that time it was written everyone believed it was Flat and a Giant held it up but in (Isaiah 40:22) and (Job 26:7) they say otherwise.
Pathology was a long way off in those days but D.N.A is also mentioned in (1Corinthians15:39)
We see Jesus’ Divinity as The Living Word being One with The Heavenly Father and The Holy Ghost
1 John 5: 7 For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost and these Three are One.
John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life and the life was the Light of men. And the Light Shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.
Aids was also documented (Romans 1:27) although both were not named as such because they are Modern day Names the same as Dinosaurs, they were called Dragons and Leviathans in Scripture and The Rapture was called the First Sickle in Revelation. There is also all the Prophecy Scripture in connection to Jesus’ Birth and Death and Resurrection and the end of the World with His return most of which we now know has been fulfilled and we can see the Signs of others being not far off fulfillment.
Amazing Facts about Prophecies in Scripture
Dr. Charles Ryrie says that according to the laws of chance it would require Two Hundred Billion earths populated with four Billion People each to come up with one Person whose life could fulfil One Hundred Accurate Prophecies without any errors in sequence. Yet the Scriptures record not One Hundred but over Three Hundred Prophecies that were fulfilled in Christ’s first Coming alone.
Scientific evidence recorded also Points to the Existence of God. The Author Peter Stoner with a PhD in Mathematics was one of the founders of the American Scientific Affiliation a Professional Organization for Christians in the Scientific field.
Peter Stoner proceeds to select eight of the best known Prophecies about the Messiah and calculated the probability of just 8 Messianic Prophecies being fulfilled in the life of Jesus. As you read through these Prophecies you will see that all estimates were calculated as conservatively as possible but the odds of their accidental fulfillment in one Person as being 1 in 1017.
The Messiah will be Born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2) The average population of Bethlehem from the time of Micah to the present (1958) divided by the average population of the earth during the same period = 7,150/2,000,000,000 or 2.8×105.
A Messenger will prepare the way for the Messiah (Malachi 3:1) One Man in how many the World over has had a forerunner (in this case, John the Baptist) to prepare his way? Estimate: 1 in 1,000 or 1×103.
The Messiah will enter Jerusalem as a king riding on a donkey (Zechariah 9:9) One Man in how many, who has entered Jerusalem as a ruler, has entered riding on a donkey?
Estimate: 1 in 100 or 1×102.
The Messiah will be betrayed by a friend and suffer wounds in His hands (Zechariah 13:6) One Man in how many the World over has been betrayed by a friend resulting in wounds in his hands? Estimate: 1 in 1,000 or 1×103.
The Messiah will be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver (Zechariah 11:12). Of the People who have been betrayed one in how many has been betrayed for exactly 30 pieces of silver? Estimate: 1 in 1,000 or 1×103.
The betrayal money will be used to purchase a Potter’s field (Zechariah 11:13) One Man in how many after receiving a bribe for the betrayal of a friend has returned the money had it refused and then experienced it being used to buy a Potter’s field? Estimate: 1 in 100,000 or 1×105.
The Messiah will remain silent while He is afflicted (Isaiah 53:7) One Man in how many when he is oppressed and afflicted though innocent will make no defense of himself? Estimate: 1 in 1,000 or 1×103.
The Messiah will die by having His hands and feet pierced (Psalm 22:16) One Man in how many since the time of David has been Crucified? Estimate: 1 in 10,000 or 1×104.
Multiplying all these probabilities together produces a number (rounded off) of 1×1028. Dividing this number by an estimate of the number of people who have lived since the time of these Prophecies (88 billion) produces a probability of all 8 Prophecies being fulfilled accidentally in the life of One Person. That probability is 1in 1017 or 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000. That’s one in one hundred quadrillion!
The Accuracy of Prophecy
Bible Prophecies concerning Cities and Nations and the odds of their being fulfilled. The first is a Prophecy in (Ezekiel 26) concerning the city of Tyre. Seven Prophecies are contained in this Chapter which was written in 590 BC:
Nebuchadnezzar shall conquer the city (vs. 7-11).
Other nations will assist Nebuchadnezzar (v. 3).
The city will be made like a bare rock (vs. 4 & 14).
It will become a place for the spreading of fishing nets (vs. 5 & 14).
Its stones and timbers will be thrown into the sea (v. 12).
Other cities will fear greatly at the fall of Tyre (v. 16).
The old city of Tyre will never be rebuilt (v. 14).
Four years after this Prophecy was given Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to Tyre. The siege lasted 13 years. When the city finally fell in 573 BC, it was discovered that everything of value had been moved to a nearby Island.
Two hundred and forty one years later Alexander the Great arrived on the Scene. Fearing that the fleet of Tyre might be used against his Homeland, he decided to take the Island where the City had been moved to. He accomplished this goal by building a causeway from the Mainland to the Island, and he did that by using all the building materials from the ruins of the old City. Neighboring Cities were so frightened by Alexander’s conquest that they immediately opened their gates to him. Ever since that time Tyre has remained in ruins and is a place where fishermen spread their nets.
Thus every detail of the Prophecy was fulfilled exactly as Predicted.
Peter Stoner calculated the odds of such a Prophecy being fulfilled by Chance as being 1 in 75,000,000, or 1 in 7.5×107. (The exponent 7 indicates that the decimal is to be moved to the right seven places.) and also the probabilities of the Prophecies concerning Samaria, Gaza and Ashkelon, Jericho, Palestine, Moab and Ammon, Edom and Babylon and the odds of Prophecies being fulfilled that predicted the closing of the Eastern Gate (Ezekiel44:1-3), the plowing of Mount Zion (Micah 3:12) and the enlargement of Jerusalem according to a prescribed pattern (Jeremiah 31:38-40).
Combining all these Prophecies he concludes that “the probability of these 11 Prophecies coming true if written in human wisdom, is… 1 in 5.76×1059. Needless to say, this is a number beyond the realm of possibility.
He asks us to imagine filling the State of Texas knee deep in Silver dollars. Include in this huge number one Silver dollar with a black check mark on it. Then turn a blindfolded Person loose in this sea of Silver dollars. The odds that the first coin he would pick up would be the one with the black check mark are the same as 8 Prophecies being fulfilled accidentally in the life of Jesus.
The point of course is that when People say that the fulfillment of Prophecy in the life of Jesus was accidental they do not know what they are talking about. Keep in mind that Jesus did not just fulfill 8 Prophecies, He fulfilled 108. The chances of fulfilling 16 is 1 in 1045. When you get to a total of 48 the odds increase to 1 in 10157. Accidental fulfillment of these Prophecies is simply beyond the realm of possibility.
When confronted with these statistics Skeptics will often fall back on the argument that Jesus purposefully fulfilled the Prophecies. There is no doubt that Jesus was aware of the Prophecies and His fulfillment of them. For example when He got ready to enter Jerusalem the last time He told His Disciples to find Him a donkey to ride so that the Prophecy of Zechariah could be fulfilled which said; “Behold, your King is coming to you gentle and mounted on a donkey” (Matthew 21:1-5 and Zechariah 9:9).
But many of the Prophecies concerning the Messiah could not be purposefully fulfilled such as Bethlehem the Town of His Birth (Micah 5:2) or the nature of His betrayal (Psalm 41:9) or the manner of His death (Zechariah 13:6 and Psalm 22:16).
One of the most remarkable Messianic Prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures is the one that precisely states that the Messiah will die by Crucifixion. It is found in (Psalm 22) where David Prophesied the Messiah would die by having His hands and feet pierced (Psalm22:16) That Prophecy was written 1,000 years before Jesus was Born. When it was written the Jewish method of Execution was by Stoning. The Prophecy was also written many years before the Romans perfected Crucifixion as a method of Execution.
Even when Jesus was killed the Jews still relied on Stoning as their method of Execution but they had lost the power to implement the death penalty due to Roman Occupation. That is why they were forced to take Jesus to Pilate the Roman Governor, and that’s how Jesus ended up being Crucified in fulfillment of David’s Prophecy.
The bottom line is that the fulfillment of Bible Prophecy in the life of Jesus proves conclusively that He truly was God in the flesh. It also proves that the Bible is Supernatural in Origin.

Another confirmation with detailed listing of all 108 Prophecies fulfilled by Jesus is contained in Dr Reagan’s book “Christ in Prophecy Study Guide.” It also contains an analytical listing of all the Messianic Prophecies in the Bible both Old and New Testaments concerning both the First and Second Comings of the Messiah.
.Thank you for sharing with me the Amazing Prophecies of God as recorded in Scripture and we remember below His words to us concerning all Scripture that was Inspired by Him and not changed by False Teachers or Man’s Translation errors or wrong interpretation but we do not have to worry about deception, having asked for His Wisdom and Empowering He will show us when they are in error because of these.
2 Timothy 3: 17 All Scripture is given by Inspiration of God and is Profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness.That the Man of God may be Perfect and thoroughly equipped to do all His Good Works.
