Inspired by God.

To any reasonable person, the Bible can easily be shown to be inspired by God.

It was written over a period of around 1,600 years, by around 40 authors from all walks of life, and yet there is a wonderful continuity of thought running throughout its pages. For example, consider the subject of “righteousness,” a word that is used 301 times in the NKJ translation. Jesus died on the cross because God demanded perfect justice to satisfy His perfect righteousness. Look at the amazing continuity of Scripture. Psalm 9:8 (written around 800 B.C.) warned that God “shall judge the world in righteousness.” Proverbs 11:4 warns again: “Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.” So, how can guilty sinners become righteous in the sight of a holy God? Hosea 10:12 tells us, “For it is time to seek the LORD, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.” It was the on the Day of Pentecost that righteousness rained down from heaven. Now God commands all men everywhere to repent. Why? “Because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness” (Acts 17:30,31). As the apostle Paul was about to die he said, “Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing” (2 Tim. 4:8). In the meanwhile, you and I wait for a new heavens and new earth “in which righteousness dwells” (2 Pet. 2:13). So, what should we be doing as Christians while we wait? Daniel 12:3 tells us: “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.”

Psalm 72: 2 He will judge Your people with righteousness, And Your poor with justice
