The Bible

The only book that comes with a gaurantee.

The Bible is the oldest book in the world that has evidence to prove it is correct. Old manuscripts supporting the text of the Bible exist in abundance. No other ancient book in existence today has such a huge number of existing manuscript evidence to support the truth of what it says.

Best Selling Book

Over 1,000,000 bibles are sold each year

The Bible is by far the worlds best-selling book of all time. No other book, fact or fiction, even comes close. Most estimates place the number of Bibles printed each year at over 100 million. 20 million Bibles are sold each year in the United States alone. Based on this number of 100 million Bibles printed per year, the following statistics show a breakdown for the number of Bibles that are sold or given away for different time frames.

  • 273,972 a day

Even With Bible Apps, Millions Of Bibles Are Still Sold Each Year

It is estimated that between 1815 and 1975 there was 2.5 billion copies of the Bible printed. A more recent estimate places the total number of Bibles in print at over 6 billion. These are absolutely staggering numbers.

An obvious trend that has no doubt affected the sales of printed Bibles is the ability to download the Bible on our devices. Bible apps have and are being downloaded by the millions. YouVersion’s Bible App alone had been downloaded over 300 million times by the end of 2017. Even so, based on the number of Bibles that have been sold in the past, and are still being sold every year, there is obviously still something to be said about owning and having a printed Bible in your hand.

On a side note, in addition to being the most sold book, the Bible has long been claimed to be the most shop lifted book as well. Go figure.

Other Books

Many of the world’s religions seem to make great promises, they are however more along the lines of philosophical sayings. Some advocate violence as a means of converting souls to their cause, even corrupted Chrsitianity has gone down this road in times past. Violence was never the God of the Bible’s way of conversion. Conversion was, and still is a free will choice.

Some make the claim that their books are part of God’s plan, yet God has never included in the Bible anything that would allow for additional writings. On the contrary, God absolutely made it clear that nothing was to  be added to His word or taken away from it.As far as God is concerned the Bible contains all the information to achieve God’s will and purpose on this planet and in the new heavens and the new earth for mankind.

Prophecy

1 person fulfilling 8 prophecies: 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000 1 person fulfilling 48 prophecies: 1 chance in 10 to the 157th power 1 person fulfilling 300+ prophecies: Only Jesus!

The bible is amazing in it’s accuracy concerning the prophetic messages in the Old and New testaments. Over 300 prophetic statements about Jesus Christ, his birth, death and resurrection. All of them 100% correct. 

Prophecies concerning the nation of Israel, their captivity, dispersion, and restoration to Israel (the modern nation) and ultimately the restoration of Jerusalem in 1917 back to the hands of the Jews.

No other book is as comprehensive in it’s prophetic coverage of world events, and promises to God’s people. 

No other book promises eternal life with proof of it’s fulfilment in the lives of those that receive that promise.

No other book promises signs, wonders, and miracles to support the written word. 

No other book documents so comprehensively how those promises were realized in the lives of those that were the beneficiaries of them.

Most importantly, no other book documents how the Church began and the evidence that accompanied that beginning.

The Day of Pentecost was the end of one era and the beginning 0f the next. It was the end of the works of the Old testament Law for salvation and the beginning of the era of Grace. the statement that we are “Saved by Grace, and not by Works” is true, but is misunderstood by the majority of those that call themselves Christians.

You will only know that you have received the Grace of God by having the Bible prescribed evidence of speaking in tongues. It is how God revealed to man that he could and would know that he had received the Holy Spirit. There is no other way to know that.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
