We love the Bible, God's Holy Word. The great miracle of Bible prophecy demonstrates two things:
FIRST: The prophetic revelation of God's Word demonstrates that God is Omniscient meaning that He knows all things from the beginning to the end.
SECOND: The prophetic revelation of God's Word demonstrates that God has a plan and purpose which in His Power and Wisdom He carries out for His glory and for the redemption of His people.
The prophetic revelation of God's Word demonstrates that He always operated within His plan A and has never lost control. It certainly would be a confusing world if every act and happening surprised God and required Him to improvise with a "plan B" to rescue His people and plans from disaster.
The prophetic revelation of God's Word demonstrates that not even Man's original sin of rebellion in the Garden of Eden surprised God. He created Man with freedom of will to obey or disobey.
Why God permitted man to sin and do evil we cannot perfectly explain, but we have assurance from the Word of God that a blood-washed redeemed people will ultimately contribute vastly to God's glory and praise.
The prophetic revelation of God's Word demonstrates that God is not the author of sin, but is righteous in all His dealings with mankind. He, in His Infinite Wisdom, which we cannot fully fathom, made man a free moral agent capable of obedience or disobedience.
Depravity, pain, and crime resulted from Man's disobedience. But the prophetic revelation of God's Word demonstrates that it has always been God's purposed to overrule these and defeat sin, death and the grave.
