God can even name it! – Bible Study

““Thus says the Lord to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held To  subdue nations before him And loose the armor of kings, To open before him the double  doors, So that the gates will not be shut:”

Isaiah 45:1 NKJV


God has consistently proven his case in the Bible. In this case, he actually names a  leader who was not even born when Isaiah was written.

According to Wikipedia, Isaiah was written between 740 and 686 BC.  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaiah). In Isaiah 6:1, it claims writing began “In the year  that King Uzziah died…” According to Wikipedia, King Uzziah died in the year 750 or 751 BC. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uzziah). To allow plenty of room for error, let us say Isaiah was written between 751 to 686 BC.

Now, things get interesting. Cyrus was presented as a leader between 751 to 686 BC in  Isaiah. So, when was Cyrus born? He was born between 600 BC and 530 BC  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrus_the_Great)! This means Cyrus was not even born  until between 150 to 200 years after Isaiah was written.

These facts tell you the Bible is the Word of God. God proves Himself throughout. Thank  you Lord for using prophesy to prove Your Word is 100 percent true!
