"Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, And from ancient times the things which have not [yet] been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, and I will do all that pleases Me and fulfills My purpose." ~ Isaiah 46:10 (AMP)

These are all words that you'll hear many people use to describe the Bible, God's Word. Some believe that humankind, here in 2017, has advanced beyond the scope of a Book written over 2,000 years ago. That type of human ascent over an ancient Article might be possible, except for one thing; better said, except for One Person, the Author!
God, Who spoke His Word so that it's Penmen could write, did not Author His Book only as Alpha, the Beginning. He is equally engaged as Omega, the End. When God breathed His Word, beginning with Moses, He declared it with full knowledge and wisdom from the Beginning; while completely mindful and compassionate with those of Humankind that will inhabit the earth as long as the world remains. He was not stuck in a period of time as though writing only to the people of that time.
He is the Eternal One! He is Omniscient! He gave us His Word knowing that the world, people, and cultures will always shift and change. He knew that we need a Rock to build our lives upon in an always-changing world. He is aware that we need a Compass, so that no matter what storms we face, It will always point us to True North! From the Beginning, Alpha gave us His Word with the End, Omega, in mind, and all that is in between. We are wise to realize that Man will never advance beyond God's Word and wisdom. When He spoke His Word He was, at once, at the very beginning and well advanced, to the very end of all things. His Word is "Life to all who find it and health to all their flesh!"
