God told him not to come closer that where he was standing was a holy land, and he removed his sandals

God told him that he had seen the affliction of Israelites in Egypt because of their task master and have come down deliver them. So that they may go to the land flowing with Milk and Honey.

Signs Given to Moses by God

God tried everything possible to convince Moses that there was no course for fear nevertheless; Moses told that the people would neither listen to him nor believe that such god appeared to him in the response to that gave Moses the following signs

   Firstly: God asked him what was in his hand and he answered that it was a Rod. God, therefore, told him to cast it on the ground and when he did that, it turned into serpent. Moses fled from it but upon God’s instruction, he took it by the tail and it became a Rod again in his hand.

Secondly: He told Moses to put his hand into his bosom and he obeyed, when he brought his hand out, it had become leprous, as white as snow. Again, he was told to put it back and bring it out the second time. He compiled and his hand was restored like the rest of his flesh. God told him that if they did not believe the first sign, they might believe the second one but if they reject both signs, he should take some water from the Nile and pour it on the ground for it to become blood on the dry ground. still Moses complained of lack of fluency in speech
