The Historical Errors Of The Bible - Isaiah  By Peter Murphy

Deut. 18: 21-22, "21 And you may say in your heart, 'How shall we know the word which the Lord God has not spoken?' 22 When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken ...."

Num. 23: 19, "19 God in not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He
should repent: has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will not make it good?"

I Sam. 15: 29, "29 And also the Glory of Israel will not lie or change His mind; for He is not a man that He should change His mind."

Many have heard these passages read in their churches, and have read it for themselves in the bible. This is the measure to use in measuring any statement, because it is apparent that God would not inspire a vain pronouncement. Unfortunately, there are such vain pronouncements and prophecies in the bible. We will look at the false pronouncements of the Book of Isaiah. The pattern I will follow is to quote the verses in question, and provide an observation based on easily attainable historical information, and provide a conclusion based on the truth. I have no reason to lie about what follows, the bible itself proves its own unreliability. I have even incorporated several apologetics, and pointed out their mistakes; judge for yourself.

Isaiah 19: 21-22, "21 Thus the Lord will make Himself known to Egypt, ... They will
worship the Lord with sacrifice and offerings, ...22 And the Lord will strike Egypt ...
so they will return to the Lord, and He will respond to them and heal them."

Apologetics: They will return to the Coptic Church, it is a future prophecy.

Rebuttal: The prophecy refers to Hebrew religious practices, the OT is not a christian
book, but a Jewish book. The Coptic Church never was widespread, so the vast majority of Egyptian never belonged to it, even at its height. Therefore, the non-Coptics cannot return to it. Islam never converted the Coptics, but did successfully convert the peasants away from the old gods for Allah. ALSO, the prophecy is about sacrifice being offered. Christianity is not a religion that offers sacrifice, for it maintains that Jesus was the essential one time sacrifice! The prophecy involves sacrifice, and that disqualifies

Observation: This prophecy has several serious problems; v. 21 states that the
Egyptians will worship God in the Hebrew manner, which has never happened in Egyptian history; v. 22 states that the Egyptians will return to the Lord, but it is established history that the Egyptians never worshiped YHWH, they remained loyal to the old gods until Islam took over the country.

Conclusion: According to the measure of Moses, this is a false prophecy.

Isa. 19: 23-24, "23 In that day ... the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians. 24 In that day Israel will be a third party with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth."

Apologetic: Both Egypt and Israel were subject to Assyria..

Rebuttal: The prophecy is not about subjection, but about Israel being a "third party" in a three was partnership. One cannot consider the Assyrian Empire a blessing.

Observation: This partnership never happened, and since Assyria disappeared as a
entity in Persian times, the same is true for Israel, all that remained were the Jews, and
even the Egyptians are no longer the people they were 2700 years ago when this
prophecy was given; this proves that this prophecy can NEVER come true.

Conclusion: According to the measure of Moses, this is a false prophecy.

So who are you going to believe? Your preacher? Your bible? Moses? The facts? That I leave to you, it is sufficient that the bible was proved to be in error, that prophecies
attributed to God, were false words put into His mouth.
