Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: - Isaiah 46:9-10 KJV
Fulfilled prophecies confirm the Bible´s trustworthiness.
The Scriptures contain at least 1,000 prophecies. Many have been fulfilled, some of them are being fulfilled, and others await their fulfillment.
For example, let's consider the prophecy regarding Tyre, the flourishing port of ancient Phoenicia. The prophet Ezekiel announced that Nebuchadnezzar would raze the city and that would never be rebuilt (Ezekiel 26:7-14).
This prophecy was fulfilled in every detail. The king of Babylon besieged Tyre for 13 years and invaded and destroyed it, but the inhabitants had fleed to an island 800 meters from the shore.
Two hundred fifty years later the citizens of Tyre felt safe on the island´s fortress. But Alexander the Great ordered his soldiers to cast the ruins of the ancient city into the water and to build a causeway to the island. Afterward, he marched with his army and conquered the new Tyre.
Today it is common to see fishers spread their nets to dry where the ancient city once stood. It looks like bare rock. These attempts to rebuild it were unsuccessful.
The Lord said:
And I will make thee like the top of a rock: thou shalt be a place to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for I the LORD have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. - Ezekiel 26:14 KJV
