ANOTHER OF GOD'S WONDERS, A WHITETAILED EAGLE


"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as
eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." (Isa 40:31)

"And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body (soma,
from sozo, to save, i.e., the Body of Christ) is (i.e., it is in Heaven), thither will the eagles (aetos,
eagle from its wind-like flight, i.e., the Tribulation saints) be gathered together." (Luk_17:37)

IN THE BIBLE, FOUR FLAGS WITH FOUR FACES ON THEM REPRESENT THE FOUR CARDINAL POINTS OF THE COMPASS

The Israelites used flags with these faces on them to mark north, south, east and west when they camped around the Tabernacle. I learned this long ago from Clarence Larkins book, Dispensational Truth, p. 159.

Num 2:2 says, "Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own standard, with the ensign of their father's house: far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch".

Num 2:3 And on the east side toward the rising of the sun shall they of the standard of the camp of Judah pitch".

Judah's flag had a picture of a lion on it.

Num 2:10 says, "On the south side shall be the standard of the camp of Reuben".

Reuben's flag had a picture of a man on it.

Num 2:18 says "On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim".

Ephraim's flag had a picture of an ox (or calf) on it.

Num 2:25 says, "The standard of the camp of Dan shall be on the north side by their armies".

The flag of Dan had the picture of an eagle on it.

Speaking of the four terrestrial planets, Eze_1:10 says, "As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man (indicating south), and the face of a lion (indicating east), on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox (indicating west) on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle" (indicating north).

The orbits of the terrestrial planets form wheels within wheels as they orbit around the fire enfolding itself, the Sun, in the center.

Eze 1:15 shows that Earth is one of the four "cherubim". It says, "Now as I beheld the living creatures (i.e., lively things, animated things), behold one wheel (i.e., orbit) upon the EARTH by the living creatures, with his four faces." Being a globe, Earth faces four directions.

1Ch 29:15 says, "our days on the earth are as a shadow".

Israel's camp around the Tabernacle was a shadow of the Lord's throne in heaven.

Heb_8:5 says, "Who serve unto the example (hupodeigma, an exhibit for imitation) and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount."

Rev_4:5-7 says, "And out of the throne (i.e., of Jesus/God, the first and the last) proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 5 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal (i.e., Saturn's ring system): and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes (i.e., they are full orbs, globes) before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion (indicating east), and the second beast like a calf (indicating west), and the third beast had a face as a man (indicating south), and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle" (indicating north).

According to Josephus (Ant. III.VI.7), a Pharisee priest, the 7 lamps in the lampstand represented the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

The four planets surrounding Saturn are Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune.

"When the Jews camped in the wilderness after leaving Egypt, they were instructed to set up in 4 sub-camps, one for each point of the compass with the tabernacle in the center. The first was called the Camp of Judah and included Issachar and Zebulon. Members of those 3 tribes would look for the ensign of Judah, a flag with a large lion embroidered on it, to locate their campground. It was always due east of the tabernacle. The second camp was called Ephraim and included Manasseh and Benjamin and was positioned...to the west. Ephraim's flag depicted the figure of an ox. The third camp was headed by Reuben and included Simeon and Gad. Reuben's flag showed the face of a man. They were located south of the tabernacle. The fourth camp was that of Dan with Asher and Napthali included and was located on the North. Dan's flag pictured a large eagle."

http://www.bible-history.com/tabernacle/TAB4The_Encampment.htm
"According to Jewish tradition it was believed that the banners of the tribes were as follows:

"Judah - East (Lion of gold with a scarlet background).
Ephraim - West (Ox of black on gold background).
Reuben - South (Man on gold background).
Dan - North (Eagle of gold on a blue background).

Camped in the center was God."

Lines connecting the four flags would have formed a cross, a pattern of things to come. This seems to be why the directions given were East and West, South and North.

His presence looked like a fire by night and a cloud by day. That is the way we see Saturn.

The Tabernacle told more of the story than that. The Altar and Brazen Sea represented Earth. The two cubed spaces in the Holy Place represented Mars and Jupiter. The Holy of Holies represented Saturn, and the fire and cloud were above the Holy of Holies.

In the Holy of Holies, I think the Ark with the cherubim on each end represented Saturn with Jupiter and Uranus on either side of it.

Added 1260 days (i.e., the first half of the Tribulation
Resulting date: Thursday, October 4, 2012

Oct. 4, 2012 could have been Mid-Trib

WE DO SEEM TO BE PAST MID-TRIB

If so, the war must be going on in heaven to oust Satan and the fallen angels.

Rev 12:7-12 says, "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out INTO the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, NOW (arti, just now, this day) IS COME SALVATION (soteria, RESCUE, DELIVERANCE, i.e., the FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE), and strength (dunamis, miraculous power, mighty wonderful work), and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."

The short time could be the shortened Great Tribulation.

Rev 12:14 says, "And to the woman (i.e., Israel) were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness (eremos, desert, i.e., Petra), into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."

1Pe_1:5 says, "Who are kept by the power (dunamis, miraculous power, mighty work) of God through faith unto salvation (soteria, RESCUE, DELIVERANCE, i.e., the FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE) READY TO BE REVEALED IN THE LAST (eschatos, farthest) TIME" (i.e., year).

Rev 17:8 says, "The beast (i.e., Satan) that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition (i.e., the son of perdition, the False Prophet): and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast (i.e., Satan) that was (in Judas Iscariot), and is not (in man now), and yet is" (exists).

Our time on Earth is short. I am hoping for the First-Trump Rapture on Ascension Day, May 5, 2013, the Eastern Orthodox Easter Sunday.

Rev 1:9-11 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (SUNDAY), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last".

I expect Moses and Elijah to come with Christ on Ascension Day.

Act 1:10,11 says, "And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men (i.e., Moses and Elijah) stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, SHALL SO COME IN LIKE MANNER as ye have seen him go into heaven."

Mat 17:1-3 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him."

Mar 9:1-4 says, "And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power. 2 And after six days, Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus."

THEY FOUND A METEORITE CRATER TO ONE SIDE OF THE HOLE IN THE RUSSIAN LAKE CHEBARKUL

http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/15/world/europe/russia-meteor-shower
"One large chunk was discovered in a lake in the Chelyabinsk region, RIA Novosti cited the Chelyabinsk governor as saying."

http://www.sciencenewsforkids.org/2013/02/meteor-explodes-over-russia/
"A special microphone network that picks up infrasound - sound below the threshold of human hearing - detected the incoming object long before anyone heard it. That infrasound pinpointed the breakup of the meteor just 32.5 seconds after entering Earth's atmosphere."

http://bigpondnews.com/articles/TopStories/2013/02/18/Meteor_fragments_found_in_Russian_lake_846839.html
"He said the rock was composed in part of metallic iron as well as chrysolite and sulfite."

"Russian officials and scientists said the blast - the largest infrasound event recorded in history - was caused by a single 10,000-ton meteor burning up in the lower atmosphere."

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/geekquinox/divers-locate-meteorite-impact-craters-russian-lake-bottom-170046561.html

Using Google Earth and some basic high school math, blogger Stefan Geens watched how the meteorite flashed overhead in the many YouTube videos posted, and reconstructed its trajectory through the atmosphere. Jorge Zuluaga and Ignacio Ferrin, two astronomers with the University of Antioquia in Medellin, picked up the torch from there, and building on Geens' work, they expanded the meteorite's path out into space, plotting several orbits and then slowly narrowing it down to just one as they collected more information.

Their analysis, published last Thursday by the online science journal arxiv.org, showed that the rock was an Apollo asteroid - one of several thousand space rocks that orbit the Sun on paths that take them across Earth's orbit.

http://en.rian.ru/science/20130321/180166867.html

MOSCOW, March 21 (RIA Novosti) - A radar probe of the bottom of Chebarkul Lake in Russia’s Urals has revealed a crater possibly created by a fragment of a meteorite that exploded over the city of Chelyabinsk last month, a Russian scientist told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

The meteorite broke into approximately seven large fragments and one of them is believed to have fallen into Chebarkul, forming a hole in the ice about eight meters in diameter....

Popov said the crater is not located directly beneath the hole in the ice, but is some 10 meters to one side of it.

MY COMMENTS

Apollo means destroyer. Rev 9:11 says, "And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon (a destroying angel), but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon" (Apolluon, a destroyer, that is, Satan). The Apollo asteroids are pieces of Satan's planet Rahab.

To me, just the presence of metallic iron shows that this rock was originally part of Satan's planet Rahab, now our Asteroid Belt. That planet must have been large enough to have an iron core.

I think this asteroid/meteor was a sign, just as the Tunguska event of June 30, 1908 was a sign. That meteorite is probably just to the side of the 164 ft. deep Lake Chenko. These asteroid chunks come in at an angle, because if a big enough one came straight in, it would blow the planet apart like what happened to Satan's planet Rahab. It ended up being our Asteroid Belt, and Satan now lives on the asteroid Wormwood (Rev 8:8-11).

On the Day of God's Wrath, the great and terrible Day of the Lord, Satan's asteroid Wormwood will hit Earth, probably forming the Lake of Fire. At that time, there will be fires in Russia.

Eze_39:6 says, "And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD."

Fwd: 30 Reasons why I believe the Rapture will likely happen Mar. 31--Apr. 1

MY REPLY

THE TESTIMONY OF THE HOLY FIRE

The MIRACLE OF THE HOLY FIRE may show us when the Rapture will take place.

"The Holy Fire is the most renowned miracle in the world of Eastern Orthodoxy. It has taken place at the same time, in the same manner, in the same place every single year for centuries. No other miracle is known to occur so regularly and so steadily over time...It happens in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, the holiest place on earth, where Christ was crucified, entombed, and where He finally rose from the dead."
(http://www.holyfire.org/eng/)

"The first written account of the Holy Fire (Holy Light) dates from the fourth century, but authors write about events that occurred in the first century. So Ss. John Damascene and Gregory of Nissa narrate how the Apostle Peter saw the Holy Light in the Holy Sepulchre after Christ's resurrection." (http://www.holyfire.org/eng/)

"When Constantine converted the empire to Christianity, he had the pagan temples dismantled, the earth removed and a church built over the spot.

"The Garden Tomb was not identified as the tomb of Jesus until the 19th century." (http://www.bibleplaces.com/holysepulcher.htm)

The Holy Fire seems to have been taking place just about every year that the Church of the Holy Sepulchre has existed in Jerusalem. It was first built in 330 AD, in the time of Constantine.

There are some good pictures of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre here:
http://www.greatmirror.com/index.cfm?chapterid=226&countryid=222

"Each year, the Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates the anniversary of the consecration of the Church of the Resurrection (Holy Sepulchre) on September 13 (for those churches which follow the traditional Julian calendar, September 13 currently falls on September 26 of the modern Gregorian calendar)".
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_the_Holy_Sepulchre)

IN THE PAST, FIRE WAS ASSOCIATED WITH THE RAPTURE OF ELIJAH AND LOT, BUT NOT ENOCH, HOWEVER, THERE SEEMS TO BE A MIRACLE OF FIRE THAT WILL COME ON THE DAY BEFORE THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Gen 5:24 says, "Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him."

Re: Lot, Gen 19:22-24 says, "Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. 23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. 24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven."

Re: Elijah, 2Ki_2:11 says, "And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared A CHARIOT OF FIRE, AND HORSES OF FIRE, and parted them both asunder; and ELIJAH WENT UP BY A WHIRLWIND INTO HEAVEN."

THE HOLY FIRE FROM THE TOMB OF JESUS COMES ON HOLY SATURDAY, THE DAY BEFORE THE EASTERN ORTHODOX EASTER

The Holy Fire should come to the burial site of Jesus in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre shortly after 2 PM on Holy Saturday. The next day, SUNDAY, May 5, 2013, will be both Ascension Day (omer 40) and the Eastern Orthodox Easter. Ascension Day will not fall on Sunday again until June 2, 2024.

REV 1:9-11 SHOWS THAT THE RAPTURE WILL BE ON SUNDAY

In the Preview of the First-Trump Rapture in Rev 1:9-18, John said, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion IN TRIBULATION (i.e., Mid-Trib) and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (SUNDAY), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

13 "And in the midst (i.e., on Earth) of the seven candlesticks one (i.e., Jesus) like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool (i.e., Jesus is the Almighty God, Dan 7:9), as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."

Dan_7:9 ties in. It says, "I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne (i.e., on Saturn, Eze 1:1,26-28) was like the fiery flame (i.e., like the 7th lamp on the lampstand), and his wheels (i.e., Saturn's rings) as burning fire."

Josephus, a Pharisee priest, is the one that told us that the 7 lamps on the lampstand represented (1) Sun, (2) Mercury, (3) Venus, (4) Earth, (5) Mars, (6) Jupiter and (7) Saturn (Ant III. VI. 7).

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE ON THE LORD'S DAY,
THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE ON THE DAY OF THE LORD

It looks like the First-Trump Rapture, THE FIRST "COME UP HITHER," could be on THE LORD'S DAY, Sunday, Iyar 25, 5773, May 5, 2013, Ascension Day and the Eastern Orthodox Easter, and the Last-Trump Rapture, THE LAST "COME UP HITHER," could be on the DAY OF THE LORD, The Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5776, Mon. Sept. 14, 2015.

The Lord acted out the first Rapture for us. Elijah acted out the second Rapture. What is to be has already been.

Ecc 1:9 says, "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."

Job 11:6 says, "THE SECRETS OF WISDOM, that they are DOUBLE to that which is!"

Of Ascension Day, Acts 1:9-11 says, "And when he (Jesus) had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, SHALL SO COME IN LIKE MANNER as ye have seen him go into heaven" i.e., on ASCENSION DAY when Moses and Elijah return to Earth.

MID-TRIB RAPTURE, 1ST "COME UP HITHER"

Moses and Elijah will come Mid-Trib, therefore, it looks like we will have a Mid-Trib Rapture.

Midtribulation Rapture Scripture:

Daniel 7:25 states that the saints will be given over to tribulation for a "time, times, and half a time".The time of the Great Tribulation is described in Scripture as the last 1260 days, or 3½ years, or 42 months of history. So this passage in Daniel fits that time allotment.

Revelation 12:6 says, "Then the woman (Israel) fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there 1260 days" (3½ years).

The mid-tribulation rapture advocates indicate that since the Daniel 7:25 passage says that the saints will only be given over to the power of the antichrist for 3½ years, then obviously the rapture must take place halfway through the 7 year Tribulation, at the 3½ year mark."
http://www.end-of-the-world411.org/midtribulationrapture.html

Rev 4:1-4 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, COME UP HITHER, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was (lit., became) in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. 3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper (last stone in the breastplate) and a sardine stone (first stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus, the first and the last, both God and man): and there was a rainbow (i.e., Saturn's rings) round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald Judas' stone in the breastplate, i.e., this is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. 4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats (lit., thrones): and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."

Rev 11:3,4 says, "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., the Great Tribulation, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks STANDING BEFORE THE GOD OF THE EARTH" (i.e., Jesus Christ).

Zec 4:1-12-14 says, "What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? 13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, THAT STAND BY THE LORD OF THE WHOLE EARTH" (i.e., Jesus Christ).

After six days, representing 6000 years, Moses and Elijah stood by Jesus at his transfiguration.

Mat 17:1-3 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, AND JOHN his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart (i.e., representing Saturn), 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him."

Mar 9:2-4 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, AND JOHN, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart (representing Saturn) by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus."

DAY OF THE LORD, DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, 2ND "COME UP HITHER"

Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, COME UP HITHER. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell".

Eze 38:18-23 says, "And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain (i.e., a tsunami), and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone (i.e., when an asteroid impacts the NE Mediterranean Sea). 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations (i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of Man, Mt 24:30):, and they shall know that I am the LORD."

Rev 16:17-19 says, "And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city (i.e., Jerusalem) was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath" (i.e., Satan's home asteroid Wormwood will obliterate Babylon).

THE COUNTDOWN OF THE 40 OMERS

Have you considered that the countdown of the 40 omers, Resurrection Day (Nisan 16) to Ascension Day (Iyar 25, by inclusive reckoning) might lead us to the day of the Rapture on May 5 this year?

An omer is for measuring barley. The Counting of the Omer begins on the 16th of Nisan. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counting_of_the_Omer)

Holy Saturday, May 4, the Holy Fire should come to announce the coming of the Lord. He might come on the Eastern Orthodox Easter Sunday, May 5. It is his Resurrection Day.

Their Easter is counted using the Julian Calendar as in 30 AD. One year, 1969-1970, when they changed the calendar to the Revised Julian, the Holy Fire did not appear. The next year, they went back to the Julian Calendar used in 30 AD, and the Holy Fire has come every year since. There must be a good reason for God to mark the Eve of the Eastern Orthodox Easter for us. Forty means trial, testing and probation. Then, is probation over on Ascension Day? Will we ascend on the same day Jesus ascended? It seems likely to me. The number 40 is used several times in the Bible.

AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, FORTY DAYS, THEN THE RAPTURE

Mat 24:37-40 says, "But as the days of Noe were (it rained 40 days and lifted up the Ark), so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

NOT IN WINTER OR ON SATURDAY

Mat 24:20-22 says, "But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."

May 5 is not in the winter or on Saturday.
