When you are looking at the Bible in terms of 100% accuracy, also look at the promises made by God. When God promised something to a person or a nation or a time period, we see that which has happened, something that is happening, and something that will happen. The Bible has used these witness scriptures to support that.

    He told Noah that His Spirit will not always strive with man because of the wickedness that was great on the earth. “And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for his days shall be an hundred and twenty years" (Genesis 6: 3) .

   He did just what He said. Read on in the book of Genesis to discover that there was  a great flood and that Noah and his family were saved. ( promised kept

   The Bible crisscrosses to the book of Matthew where Jesus brings the story of Moses up. He said that in the last days people will be doing the same things as in the days of Noah. Matthew 24: 36-39, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

 

  Also, when I think about the story of Noah and also in the promise He made about Sodom and Gomarrah, I think about the following verse and the commentary by Chuck Smith.

    "If God spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those who afterwards should live an ungodly life (2Pe 2:5-6);"

Commentary:

    "Now there is a lot of deception. As we pointed out, man who is living an ungodly life is blind. He cannot see afar off; he becomes nearsighted. He looses his sight of the eternal. And because God is merciful and longsuffering and patient, man often misinterprets this longsuffering of God as weakness or as blindness on God's part or as, God forbid, approval by God of what I'm doing. If God didn't like what I'm doing, why didn't He wipe me out, you know? It's a mistake. And people begin to think that God has withdrawn Himself. That God is just letting things go on. That God really doesn't care what's happening.

    But Peter points out that God has brought His judgment in the past, the angels which are cast down to Tartarus. The old world before Noah's time, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and that they are examples to those who would want to live an ungodly life. Your Day of Judgment is coming. You're not going to get by with it. Though you may get by for a time, there is a day of reckoning coming and it's a warning to man that one day there will be a day of reckoning and you're going to answer for the things that you've done and are doing.

 

   He told Abraham that he was going to make him a father of a great nation and that kings would come forth from him. Genesis 17: 1-8, "And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God."

   We see that David became king and later as we see Jesus who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (promised already kept) The Word says that every knee will bow, Romans 14:11-12, It is written: "As surely as I live,' says the Lord, every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God. So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God."

  It is written in Revelation 19:16,"And he hath on HIs vesture and on HIs thigh a name writte, KING OF KINGS. AND LORD OF LORDS."

  The book of Hebrews talk about the faith of Abraham as it says, “By faith, Abraham….” God went back over the promise with Issac and Jacob. Joseph told his brothers to bring his father Jacob and the other souls with him. God told Jacob that His people will suffer bondage while in Egypt, but He will bring them out.

 

  It is clear that He did just that by delivering them from Egypt. Exodus 12:40 says that it was 430 years, even the selfsame day. Then the 430 days was mentioned in Galatians 3:17 again. (promised kept)

   Then to look at the Exodus story again, you see that Egypt was a type of bondage, that we are in sin. When God instituted the Passover, we see Jesus on the cross to die for our sins to deliver us from bondage. You see Jesus in the scriptures, the Messiah, to save His people from their sins. This is all through the Bible.

(promised kept)

  There is another promise that will soon come into fruition. Jesus said that He will return. I believe Him. The scriptures say that He does not lie. He said it! I believe it! Why come all this far in knowing the other promises that He has made and they came to pass and not believe this one. The scriptures testify of each other. They support one another. We see how God always saves His people from the impending destruction. He hid them in the ark. He saved His people from the destruction in Sodom and Gomorah, He kept His people in Goshen while He was dealing with a pharoah who said, “Hey, I do not know your God." But as the story progressed, God proved to pharoah Who He was, but he also proved to the Hebrews Who He was so they would not forget Who He is. In this age, He will again hide His people when He will no longer strive with man.The Bible is clear on that.

Here are more examples of God's promises which were fulfilled:

Deuteronomy 18:15-18
God promised another prophet like Moses

Daniel 9:24-26

Daniel foretold the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple

Daniel 2:32-33

Daniel predicted the four great kingdoms

 ( Babylonians, Medes/Persians, Greeks, Romans) This will be the subject of tomorrow's series.

 Deuteronomy 28:49-52
The Bible foreshadowed Rome's destruction of Israel

 Luke 21:24

Jesus prophesied that the Jews would be exiled

 Ezekiel 34:13

The people of Israel would return to "their own land"

 Ezekiel 29:15

Egypt would never again rule over nations

 

 Isaiah 49:13-17
God will never forget the children of Israel

 

Genesis 49:10
The Messiah would come from the tribe of Judah

 

Matthew 24:1-2
Jesus prophesied that the Temple would be destroyed

 

 Matthew 24:23-25
There will be false messiahs before Jesus returns

 

  And to remember all of these promises and all of them are true, how can we not believe and declare His promises to us. Scroll down. Verses will start flashing.
