When God predicts the future, he holds himself to the highest standards. If the prophet representing him is not 100 percent correct, he is labeled a false prophet.
Daniel was anything but a false prophet. When he interpreted King Nebuchadnezzar's dream, he predicted the rise and fall of the Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Greek and Roman empires—ancient history to us, but future events during Daniel's time.
Can we trust Bible prophecy or is it a sham? Scholars tell us that nearly one-fourth of the Bible was predictive in nature when it was written, and nearly forty percent of Bible prophecies have already come true. That gives us confidence in the Scriptures and hope for the future.
