Biblical Predictions

Many predictions of future discovery are made in scripture.  These are often subtle, but recurring accurate descriptions of our universe long before science made confirmation of them.

Is 40:22 (NKJ) It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. Amazingly, here we have a description of a spherical Earth, long before this was known to science.  
Ps 104:2 (NKJ) Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment, Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain. All of these verses describe God stretching out the heavens. Repeated so many times, it seems this is something not meant to be missed. This speaks directly to the expansion of the universe that has been continuing since the beginning of time. Predicted here over 2700 years before humanity had any concept of Big Bang Theory.

These verses also talk about who God is. They describe Him as the Creator of all that exists. He is not a God who set things in motion and stands back to watch, but is actively involved in the process. He acts in the world and throughout the universe still; the forces of nature are His hands. As in His forming of a baby in the womb or in the expansion of the universe.

Heaven is described as the home of God and is the place of the stars. This encompasses the whole universe, even those parts far beyond our view. There may be more to heaven than the material part we can see, but it certainly includes all of the physical universe. Heaven had a beginning, and it was created by God.
Is 42:5 (NKJ) Thus says the Lord, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, Who gives breath to the people on it, And spirit to those who walk on it:
Is 44:24 (NKJ) Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb:  "I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;
Is 45:12 (NKJ) I have made the earth, And created man on it. I--My hands--stretched out the heavens, And all their host I have commanded.
Is 48:13 (NKJ) Indeed My hand has laid the foundation of the earth, And My right hand has stretched out the heavens; When I call to them, They stand up together.
Is 51:13 (NKJ) And you forget the Lord your Maker, Who stretched out the heavens And laid the foundations of the earth...
Jer 10:12 (NKJ) He has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom, And has stretched out the heavens at His discretion.
Jer 51:15 (NKJ) He has made the earth by His power; He has established the world by His wisdom, And stretched out the heaven by His understanding.
Zech 12:1 (NKJ) The burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him:
Is 45:18 (NKJ) For thus says the Lord, Who created the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain, Who formed it to be inhabited: "I am the Lord, and there is no other. This speaks to the purpose of it all. God created the earth for a purpose, for us. Naturalism proposes that our planet was just a chance occurrence, our existence is pure luck. But the Bible claims that all that we see is for a purpose, according to God's plan. Due to the fine tuning of the laws of physics, optimized for life; it is evident that the universe is made for a purpose, as indicated in this verse.
Is 51:6 (NKJ) Lift up your eyes to the heavens, And look on the earth beneath.  For the heavens will vanish away like smoke, The earth will grow old like a garment, And those who dwell in it will die in like manner; But My salvation will be forever, And My righteousness will not be abolished. These passages all predict the end of the earth and of the universe. Science also predicts that the universe will come to an end, and even wear out as it's store of energy is eventually exhausted.

The good news is that God is forever and so is salvation for His followers. He will one day make a new heaven to replace the present universe that will pass away.
Ps 102:25-26 (NKJ) Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You will endure; Yes they will all grow old like a garment; Like a cloak You will change them, And they will be changed.
Heb 1:10-12 (NKJ) "You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your Hands.  They will perish, but You remain; And they will all grow old like a garment; Like a cloak You will fold them up, And they will be changed. But You are the same, And Your years will not fail."

Both the beginning and the end of the universe is predicted in the Bible. Also the expansion of the universe is repeatedly mentioned. These accurate portrayals of science, are witness to the God inspired nature of scripture.
