Without God it is impossibly but with God all things are possible

Messianic Prophecy – The Odds of Fulfillment
We can understand the power of Messianic Prophecy when we consider statistical odds that one person fulfilled all of them. If we study just seven of the specific prophecies, that were later fulfilled in the Person of Jesus Christ, we are amazed by the impossibility!

  • Messianic Prophecy                                      Odds Without God
1. Jesus would be a descendant of David. 104 (1 in 10,000)
2. Jesus would be born in Bethlehem. 105 (1 in 100,000)
3. Jesus would be a miracle worker. 105 (1 in 100,000)
4. Jesus would present Himself as King riding on a donkey. 106 (1 in 1,000,000)
5. Jesus would be betrayed by a friend for 30 pieces of silver. 106 (1 in 1,000,000)
6. Jesus would be crucified. 106 (1 in 1,000,000)
7. Jesus would first present Himself as King 173,880 daysfrom the decree of Artaxerxes to rebuild Jerusalem.       106 (1 in 1,000,000)
  Total Probability (without God) 1038 (1 in a 100 billion, billion, billion, billion)

There can be no doubt that Jesus fulfilled all these prophecies and more.  This alone sets the Bible apart from other works of literature.  Once you grasp the reality it can and will change your life.  Many of the men who were inspired to write were from different background and even lived many hundred of years apart.  There can be in the end only one author to the Bible and that is God himself who placed his word into the hearts and minds of those who wrote these prophecies down.

    I first saw these statistics watching Chuck Misslers “Learn the bible in 24hrs” DVD. Looks like you have a very interesting blog here, I’m intrigued by your title as it seems to describe myself as well! I plan to subscribe so I can keep up with you! In Christ’s Love, Jeff
