God left us with many evidences to show that His Word is true, but prophecy is one of the strongest. More than 25% of the Bible is prophecy. God set a stringent standard on prophecy: it must be 100% accurate, or the prophecy is not of God [Deuteronomy 18:21-22]. This is a unique characteristic of the Bible, not found in the Veda (Hindu writings), the Koran (Islam's holy book), or any of the other writings of mankind. The so-called prophecies of Nostradamus, Jeanne Dixon, and others are of a completely different class than the Bible. Not only are these prophecies vague (leaving the possibility of being interpreted to fit numerous events), but more often than not their predictions of the future prove to be wrong. Biblical prophecies, however, are both specific and accurate.

When we hold the Bible, we are holding a collection of 66 books written over a period of about 1,500 years by more than 40 authors. Yet this book reveals a single coordinated message. The Bible repeatedly authenticates its uniqueness by describing history in exact detail before it happens. How else could God authenticate His message and prove He created everything and inspired the Bible? God is not subject to constraints of time any more than He is subject to constraints of mass, gravity, or accleration. He knows all of history before it happens. Prophecy is merely God's demonstration that because He is the Creator, He is outside of time. The prophecies of the Bible are proof of this fact.
