Prove it straight from the pages of your own Bible!
To the modern scientist or businessman, or even the theologian who does not take the Bible literally, the biggest stumbling block to understanding God's prophecies is the failure to fully grasp the absolute reality of the true God—the Creator God revealed in the Holy Bible. Just how does God's power work? How does God rearrange the destinies of nations? Can we see prophecy fulfilled in history—and even in world affairs today?
Most importantly, we need to remember that the God revealed in your Bible has the ability to exercise total power and total control of nations and individuals. "Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket, and are counted as the small dust on the balance; look, He lifts up the isles as a very little thing…. 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. He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless" (Isaiah 40:15, 22–23).
Do you believe that? Or was Isaiah making this up—perhaps taking literary liberties—in this perspective on divine power?
