The Water Cycle And Proof Of The Inspiration Of The Bible

It is written:

“He who builds His layers in the sky, And has founded His strata in the earth; Who calls for the waters of the sea, And pours them out on the face of the earth—The LORD is His name.” (Amos 9:6)

One of the evidences that the Bible comes from God is found in the fact of the scientific foreknowledge of its’ writers. Simply stated, the writers of the Bible show amazingly advanced scientific knowledge that far exceeds the scientific knowledge of their day and age. One example of this may be found in the water cycle of the Earth:

“The Scriptures inform us, “All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full; to the place from which the rivers come, there they return again” (Ecclesiastes 1: 7). This statement alone may not seem profound. But, when considered with other biblical passages, it becomes all the more remarkable. For example, the Mississippi River dumps approximately 518 billion gallons of water every 24 hours into the Gulf of Mexico. Where does all that water go? And that’s just one of thousands of rivers. The answer lies in the hydrologic cycle, so well brought out in the Bible. Psalm 135: 7 tells us, “He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain.” Ecclesiastes 11: 3 states that “if the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth.” Look at the Bible’s concise words in Amos 9: 6: “He … calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out on the face of the earth.” The idea of a complete water cycle was not fully understood by science until the seventeenth century. However, more than two thousand years prior to the discoveries of Pierre Perrault, Edme Mariotte, Edmund Halley, and others, the Scriptures clearly spoke of a water cycle.” (Ray Comfort, Scientific Facts In The Bible: 100 Reasons To Believe The Bible Is Supernatural In Origin, 109-119 (Kindle Edition); Newberry, Florida; Bridge-Logos)

Modern science is finally catching up with the Bible-a powerful example of the inspiration of Holy Scripture.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
