What are the odds? Lightning strike chances?
Many people worry, avoid, or denounce things as impossible when there is a greater chance of being struck by lightning than the thing being false (or coming true)…
The chances of the historical accuracy of Jesus and the Bible prophecies being fulfilled are how many more times greater than the probability of being struck by lightning? Yet people are leery to put their trust in Jesus because He might not be the Messiah prophesied by the Old Testament?
But I trust in the lottery because I want to be rich… That’s why I buy my tickets…
There is a better chance of you being struck by lightning 18 times before winning the lottery once! Yet how many people place their money, and thereby their trust, in winning the lottery? Yet not nearly half as many people place their trust in the reliability of God’s Word? Duh!
America, what is happening to us? Look at the odds:
Lightning Strike Chance: 1 in 9,000,000
Winning Lottery Chance: 1 in 175,000,000
Odds of Jesus fulfilling the prophecies set forward for him: 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
