HOW CAN I KNOW GOD IS REAL AND THE BIBLE IS TRUE?

God tells us, for example, in Chapter 44:6-8 and 46:9-10 of the book of Isaiah, that He alone knows the future and He tells it to us to prove He is real and the Bible is His word. This is called prophecy. The Apostles’ Creed contains nine examples of things that were foretold and later happened. They are highlighted in blue.
