You are just blind to the truth. I am sure you will try to twist it. Or look it up on an atheist site. Its funny how atheist site spend so much time
on the Bible.This post is more for other people than you.
The 26th chapter of Ezekiel records a prophecy against Tyre.
1. That Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, would conquer Tyre (vv. 7-1 1).
2. That the city would be made desolate (v. 4).
3. That it would be thrown into the sea (v. 12).
4. That it would become a place to spread nets upon (v. 14).
5. That its maritime supremacy would cease forever (v. 17).
Guess what? It all was fufilled.
Here's what actually happened as verified by secular historians.
In 590 BC, Ezekiel makes his prediction.
Four years later, in 586 BC Nebuchadnezzar attacks the coastal city of Tyre.
One year later, in 585 BC most of Tyre's inhabitants move out to a nearby island and rebuild.
17 years after the initial prophecy in 573 BC, Nebuchadnezzar finally destroys the coastal city. That's part one of the prophecy.
Two hundred years after Ezekiel goes to his grave, in 333 BC Alexander the Great attacks the island city by scraping debris from the original coastal
city and throwing it into the water to build a land bridge to it.
Centuries later, in AD 1321 the island city is destroyed by Muslims during the Crusades.
Today, the original mainland site of Tyre is as "bare as a rock." There is a city named Tyre, but it exists only as a small fishing village down the
coast from the ancient city.
Ezekiel couldn't have guessed that those things would happen. The story of Tyre and others is evidence that God directed the writing of the Bible.
In this thread Ashley gives some great examples
