Perhaps there is nothing more convincing of the Divine than the ability to tell future events.
There are many deceivers and charlatans who try to trick people by telling them the future.
The scriptural test for someone who claims to be a prophet is that he must always be right!!
Because God knows all things, He knows the future to the same degree as He knows the past and present, so we should expect His Word to tell future events;
Prime examples in the Old Testament are in the book of Isaiah which foretold for instance the virgin birth of Christ about 700 years in advance and the book of Micah which told us that the Messiah(Christ) would be born in Bethlehem hundreds of years in advance.
In the book of Daniel, the kingdoms of Babylon, Meda-Persia, Greece and Rome were spoken of in advance and minute details concerning future events associated with these kingdoms in their dealing with Israel were prophesied. These things were all fulfilled.
Likewise we have in the New Testament many events which are foretold and which are yet future. We do well to study these and carefully and prayerfully watch for their fulfillment:
What the Bible says concerning the future will happen because God has said it and He knows!!
God made man in His own image......Genesis1:27, but ever since the fall man has been making 'gods' in his own image.
Because we are fallen from the original place of knowing God, the best concepts we can have of Him are idolatrous and fall infinitely short of the true.
This has given rise to all forms of religious practice which no matter how noble it might seem to the people taking part, is an abominationn to God. They "changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man"....Rom 1:15.
This problem can only be rectified in Jesus Christ Who is the revelation of God to man. He is the image of the invisible God....Colossians 1:15
In Jesus Christ alone can God be known......John 8:19
