The Bible is Gods word, but he used man to write it.
16*All Scripture is God-breathed*and is useful for teaching,rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
Isaiah learned from God that a man named Cyrus would overthrow Babylon.
45*“This is what the*Lord*says to his anointed,
****to Cyrus,*whose right hand I take hold*of to subdue nations*before him*and to strip kings of their armor,to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
2*I will go before you*and will level*the mountains[a];I will break down gates*of bronze
****and cut through bars of iron.3*I will give you hidden treasures,*riches stored in secret places,so that you may know*that I am the*Lord*the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
And guess what, 200 years later it happened.
Before people were able to photograph the earth many believed the earth was flat, or was held by a ox. But the Bible said different, and how could the writers have known it if God didn't tell them?
7*He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
22*He sits enthroned*above the circle of the earth,and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens*like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent*to live in.
The Earth hangs upon nothing and is a circle.
