6. How Do You Know the Miracles the Bible Talks about Really Happened?
Slide 4 of 5
Miracles are just that—miracles. They don’t depend upon natural phenomena to occur. But for those who demand physical proof, there are multitudes of archeological demonstrations of biblical truth.
One example is proof of the Red Sea Crossing. Excavation and diving excursions have discovered chariot wheels along with human and horse bones at the bottom of the sea. The preservation of the bones was due to mineralization in salt water.
A pillar of granite 25 feet high was discovered on the Egyptian side of Nuweiba Beach with writings in Hebrew depicting the story of the Hebrew crossing. This was placed in the location by King Solomon. A similar pillar was constructed on the Saudi Arabian side of the sea, but the Saudi government has removed it and only a marker remains.
The Red Sea is 5,000–6,000 feet deep in this area. Only a miraculous hand could push back that volume of water for the Hebrews to walk through on dry ground (Exodus 14:21).
Another supernatural event mankind could not fabricate was when the sun stood still during a battle the Israelites fought. The day did not progress further or end until the victory was won.
So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies. (Joshua 10:13)
Also when King Hezekiah asked for proof a message from Isaiah the prophet was true, the Lord allowed him to choose if he wanted the sun to go backward or forward 10 degrees. The king chose backward and the shadow cast by the sun moved back exactly 10 degrees (2 Kings 20:11).
Both of these cosmic events have been verified by NASA computations.
7. Where Did God Come From?
The same ones who ask this question will have faith in a piece of slime floating in space. We, as mortal humans, can’t figure out everything in the spirit world. We need to accept what the Bible says by faith.
By showing the Bible’s validity we can also know that what the Word of God says about the Lord’s eternal existence is true. Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies about Himself. Miraculous displays have been confirmed by archeological and scientific methods. With all this proof, there is no excuse for not accepting everything the Bible says.
Believing in God requires humility. Unfortunately, for some, self is their god.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. (Hebrews 11:3)
Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.” (Revelation 4:8)
