Scientific Truths Revealed in the Bible

An Essay By Paula J // 11/20/2008

Scientific Truths Revealed in the Bible
Many important scientific truths were revealed in the Bible thousands of years before they were discovered by modern scientists.

1. Earth is a sphere suspended in space. Isaiah 40:22, Job 26:7
2. The water cycle keeps the land watered. Job 36:27, 28, Ecclesiastes 1:7, Amos 5.8
3. The universe is running down. Isaiah 51:6, Psalm 102:26
4. Ocean Currents flow thru the sea. Psalm 8:8
5. Blood sustains life. Leviticus 17:11
6. The stars are incredibly distant from the earth and cannot be numbered. Job 22:12, Genesis 15:5, Jeremiah 33:22
7. The winds form a circulating system. Ecclesiastes 1:6
8. Earth rotates on its axis. Job 38:12, 14
9. Man’s body is composed of the same materials as the earth. Genesis 2:7, 3:19, Psalm 103:14*
(Since God made man from the dust it makes perfect sense.)

There are a lot of scientists from back in the old days that were creationists, believing in the 6-day account of creation. And there are still some today who believe so!
So, as you can see from the list above, the Bible is true and accurate. No, the Bible is technically a science book, but it does hold the truth to science questions.
If that doesn’t make you believe the authenticity of the Bible, maybe something else can. It too shows the authenticity of the Bible. You know all those prophecies about a baby being born and what would happen to Him? Jesus came and fulfilled every single one of them. He is the Son of the living God!
It takes faith to believe in God, yet it takes faith, maybe even more faith, to believe He isn’t there. I say that because in Romans one it says that God has revealed Himself thru His creation. By denying His existence you are rejecting Him. Besides, wouldn’t you rather live as if He is real then not live so only to die and find out He is real? Because then you’d spend eternity in hell. Of course even if you believed He is real yet never accepted Him hell would still be your fate.
Without God being real, there is no standard of right and wrong. Because without God you make your own world, your own right and wrong standards. And then nobody could tell you there are wrong.
Take Hitler for an example. What he did, having 6 million Jews killed, was wrong, yet if you believe God doesn’t exist, you can’t tell him he was wrong because he had his own right and wrong and you have yours.
Without God there is no purpose to life. There are no right and wrong except for the ones each person creates for him/herself.
Get what I’m saying? Denying the existence of God is taking away any standards of right and wrong. You are also denying the evidence that points of the truth of God’s Word, the Bible. The Bible is God-inspired and several archaeological finds have proved the accuracy of the Bible.
Still don’t desire to believe the Bible? What about these truths?
(first part is the predicted, second part is where Jesus fulfilled it.)
Be a descendant of David: 2 Sam.7:12, Matt. 1:1
Be born in the town of Bethlehem: Micah 5:2-5, Luke 2: 4-7
Be born to a virgin: Isaiah 7:14, Matt. 1:21
Be silent before His accusers: Isaiah 53:7, Matt. 27: 12-19
Be pierced in His side: Zech. 2:10, John 19:34
Rise from the dead: Psalm 16:10, Mark 16:6*
(*Taken from “Cross Train” by Kevin Johnson)

See what I mean? The Bible holds the correct answers to science and that list above shows the proof the Bible isn’t a myth. How somebody can deny such facts is beyond me. Yes, different people did write the Bible but God chose each one and spoke thru them.
The Bible was not all written at once, which also proves somebody didn’t make it up. It shows it is true, and what it says is truly from God.
God is real; He does have a Son, Jesus Christ, and God is also the Maker of the universe.


Well said!

My sentiments exactly, Paula! Way to present our beliefs in a straightforward, simplistic manner! I actually just got done writing the rough draft of a paper that dethrones the ideas presented in a documentary I watched this week. Would you believe it, some radicals have actually started denying the very existence of the Children of Israel!!!! They are so desperate to escape their guilt by disproving the Bible that they are resorting to arguments that even THEY know are flimsy and inaccurate! And sitting through bald-faced blasphemy is not a pleasant way to spend two hours, but I couldn't write the paper if I hadn't seen the documentary.
As soon as I get the final draft together I'll post it on here for you to read : )
BTW - I loved Biology: God's Living Creation!
