Proof That God Exists

There is skepticism in our society about the existence of God. Some people outright deny His existence while others are merely unconvinced. Even many who claim to believe in God have some doubts. One of the ways we know God exists is the historical documents which testify to the existence of God. Many centuries ago God intervened in human affairs and performed miracles to prove His existence. His miracles were performed in front of dozens and hundreds of eyewitnesses, these appearances and miracles were written down, and we have these written documents today, meaning we have historical documents which testify to the fact God exists. The book of Exodus is one of these historical documents which testify to the existence of God. In this video we’re going to look at some examples from Exodus of God performing miracles in front of eyewitnesses in order to prove His existence.

Ex. 7:8 Now the LORD[Yahweh] spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,
Ex. 7:9 “When Pharaoh speaks to you[Moses], saying, ‘Work a miracle,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your[Aaron] staff and throw it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.’”
Ex. 7:10 So Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and thus they did just as the LORD[Yahweh] had commanded; and Aaron threw his staff down before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent.
Ex. 7:11 Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers, and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same with their secret arts.
