Bible Prophecy Refutes The DaVinci Code


How Bible Prophecy Proves The Portrait of Christ In The Bible Is True >>

Israel And The Prophetic Books of the Bible:

The DaVinci Code's claim about the Bible is proven false by the prophetic sign God built into the very fabric of history - rather than the canvas of a painting! The message from God isn't merely a dictation recorded by one person. His process of communicating to us is dynamic and creative. His message is contained in 66 different books written by 40 authors over 1,500 years, all bound together in one volume that is referred to as the Bible. Approximately 4,000 years ago, before the first book was even written, God established a nation that He named Israel (Genesis 35:10-12). He called His relationship with Israel "a memorial to all generations" (Exodus 3:15). The first 17 of the 66 books of the Bible are history books that cover the period from Israel's birth to Israel's destruction in 586 B.C.. The prophetic books of the Bible foretold many aspects of Israel's history, including Israel's rebirth in 1948. There are over 2,000 prophecies contained in the Bible, all of which serve to assure us that the message of the Bible originates from God who alone is able to reveal the future with 100% accuracy. "Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done..." (Isaiah 46:9-10).

The hour hand on the prophetic clock is the nation of Israel:

After Israel was conquered in 586 B.C. and the people of Israel (the Jews) were scattered around the world, God revealed to the prophet Ezekiel that Israel's days were not over, that He would gather Israel out of the nations where they were scattered and bring them back to their homeland as a nation once again: "Therefore say to the house of Israel, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "... I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land"'" (Ezekiel 36:22-24). "Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land..." (Ezekiel 34:12). See also: Zechariah 7:14; Jeremiah 16:14-15; Jeremiah 23:7-8; Jeremiah 33:7; Ezekiel 34:12, Ezekiel 36:34-35. In 960 B.C., when King Solomon completed the first temple in Jerusalem, Israel was a dominant world power. In 586 B.C. the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem and took captive the last king of Israel. For the next 2,535 years the people of Israel survived while scattered around the world amid unparalleled persecution. During the Holocaust over 6 million Jews were killed - 2 out of every 3 living in Europe. Many who survived were impoverished and nearly starved to death. By the end of World War II, the fulfillment of God's promise to reestablish Israel as a nation in their homeland seemed more unlikely than ever; yet the prophetic clock was ticking, and the minute hand would soon strike twelve. In 1947, UN resolution #1981 partitioned Palestine, giving 18% to the Jews and making Jerusalem an "international city" never to be under Jewish control. Six months later, on May 14, 1948, Israel declared independence and made Jerusalem it's capitol. They were immediately attacked on all sides by six Arab nations. The Arab League Secretary, General Azzam Pasha declared "jihad" and said, "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre..." The Jews faced this just three years after the Holocaust! In spite of being outnumbered many times over and fighting with inferior weaponry, Israel was victorious and regained the sovereignty it lost in 586 B.C., thus continuing it's role as God's "memorial to all generations" (Exodus 3:15). The nation of Israel is a phenomena that is unprecedented in world history and provides indisputable evidence that Bible prophecy is reliable.
