7-13-2017 The Bible Is From God

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14 NKJV). This prophecy, given some 700 years before it happened, was not “dually fulfilled;” did not apply to Isaiah’s own son or the serious situation at the time; but was only one-time fulfilled in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, so said God’s Holy-Spirit-inspired writer, Matthew, in Matthew 1:20-23. Only God could have prophesied such a unique, specific event, controlled its writing, preserved the prophecy for 700 years, and identified the event that completely fulfilled the original statement. The Bible does this hundreds of times, proving that it comes only from God, but no other religion’s book does: the Hindu Rig Veda; the Muslim Koran; or the Buddhist Tripitaka!
