The Bible as a Reliable Source for the Workings of the Supernatural - Part 1

By Lisa Grace

Before there was the written word on papyrus, the scriptures were handed down by oral tradition. No other document has as many pieces surviving to back up the authenticity of the documents that comprise the early books of the modern Bible. Literally thousands. Homer’s Iliad in contrast, has only five surviving copies, yet no one doubts its origins or validity. But we have thousands of an earlier document, yet many try to cast doubt on its veracity. Why is that?

Because if it’s true, the implications of there being a supernatural world of which the earth is but a shadow, and that there is indeed a ruler of that universe, has implications of how we should live in this one.

No other source has had all of its prophecies come true, only the Bible.

Even non-believers in the Bible as the inspired word of God, turn to it for use in dealing with the supernatural. The creatures of the invisible world are mentioned over four hundred times, along with numerous examples of how Jesus dealt with that realm.

The Bible talks about how God exists outside of time, time was created by God, and that the Bible explores numerous other philosophical/scientific theories, which have been proven true by the scientific community. This is scary stuff to people who don’t want to acknowledge there is a God or an unseen universe outside the one we know.

When you meet someone who is truly evil, there is no doubt that forces beyond what we can see, exist. (Like electricity or time.)

There is no other book that explains the known with such accuracy. This is why believers and non-believers turn to the Bible when dealing with supernatural, and why you should too.
