By inspiring his servants to record information about the FUTURE that human beings could not possibly know.
Israel’s Restoration Jesus foretold that Jerusalem including the Temple would be destroyed and that the jews would be scattered throughout the world. This prophecy was fulfilled in AD 70.
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
What is so amazing is that the Bible declares that the Jews will be preserved as an identifiable nation and re-gathered back into their homeland in the last days. This seemed an impossibility especially after nearly 2000yrs without a homeland and the slaughter of 6,000,000 Jews during World War 2, but on May 14th 1948 the state of Israel was re-established. This has happened to no other nation in history.
Ezekiel 36:24,30,34-36 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

The odds of the Prophets Guessing all of the Events that would happen in the Life of this One Man, hundreds of years in Advance is an IMPOSSIBILITY Jesus said I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me
These are the last days. Look at our world.
All of the disasters eg Plane crashes etc, an increase in sickness and disease eg Aids, Cancer etc, a dramatic increase in IMMORALITY, the destruction of the environment, an increase in natural disasters eg EARTHQUAKES, HURRICANES etc,
a dramatic increase in Science and Technology, the movement toward a EUROPEAN SUPERSTATE and SINGLE CURRENCY, TERRORISM etc.
Is it a coincidence that all these things are happening at once ?
No, the Bible said that these things would take place and things will get worse not better.
JESUS CHRIST can be YOUR REFUGE.
