Impossibility of Chance

For anyone to say that Jesus is not God in the flesh as the Bible declares Him to be and as He identified Himself to be is equivalent to saying that the fulfillment of all the Messianic prophecies given in the Old Testament and fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament is all just luck and chance. To believe this is to ignore not only Bible truth but pure logical reasoning. I have read several different researchers who have done the mathematical probability of this reality of Jesus being who He said He was or these fulfilled prophecies being mere chance and they each point to the mathematical impossibility of it being just luck for one person to hit each and every fulfilled prophecy perfectly. Just doing another web search, I found a new research that I had not previously looked at, and their findings were very similar to what I had seen before, but they expanded their research further. If you just take 8 Messianic prophecies given in the Old Testament and fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament, the mathematical probability of it being random chance would be 1 in 10 to the 17th power. If you use 16 Messianic prophecies, the number expands to 1 in 10 to the 45th power for it to be mere chance for one person to fulfill them all. If you include 48 prophecies, the number jumps to 1 in 10 to the 157th power. The more prophecies you include about Messiah the higher the probability goes. The point is that it is impossible, not even improbable, for Jesus not to be Messiah and not to be God in the flesh and fulfill all of the Messianic prophecies He has already fulfilled in His birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension. This truth not only proves that Jesus is truly God in the flesh and therefore Messiah, but it also proves that the Bible is truly inspired by God and is God’s Word to man. There is no way all of the fulfilled prophecies in the Bible could have been fulfilled perfectly with the Bible being written by random men throughout 2,000 years of history and have the things they stated come to be just as they stated them hundreds of years and some thousands of years after their death. Obviously, they could not manufacture the events to be fulfilled. This being said, every true believer should be confident in their faith in Jesus to be who He is and to have done what He did based upon the fact that God’s Word say it and we should never allow anyone to undermine that for us by their attacks on it that are unsubstantiated and baseless. As Romans 3:4 says “…let God be true, but every man a liar;” we ought to always trust God and His Word over man.
