Miracles & The Ethiopian Flag

UFO falls in Kazakhstan – witnesses


Residents of a western Kazakhstan town reported that they witnessed two silver objects fall from the sky on Wednesday night.

It was at about 3AM. I was standing by my tractor when the guys started shouting: ‘Look, there are some balls flying.’ They were big and sparkling with Green, Yellow and Red, an eyewitness told Interfax news agency over the phone.

According to the witnesses, the spherical objects were approximately 60 cm in diameter, had a silvery surface with what appeared to be a small opening. The UFOs failed to bend or dent when local residents attempted to strike them with their tools, and said the balls produced sparks when they attempted to do so.

A preliminary investigation has failed to identify the strange objects, but according to head of the local emergencies service Aleksandr Ivanov, they are most likely “fragments of a man-made aircraft.”

He also noted that the region where the two spherical objects were discovered has no history of similar incidences.

Objects fall on the areas bordering the Russian military test range Kapustin Yar, but here it’s a rare thing. I’d say it’s a first,” he said.

The balls were found to pose no immediate threat to public health or the environment and were sent for further research to “a specialized organization.”

Halo of Red, Gold and Green

On April 13, 2008, a Halo of Red, Gold and Green colors hanging around the sun startled people in Ethiopia, with many seeing it as a miracle or a sign from God.

According to scientists, this unheard of ring of red, gold and green light was supposedly caused by sunlight refracted by ice crystals. It hung in the sky around the sun for almost an hour before it finally faded and disappeared.

The colors of the Ethiopian flag are red, gold and green.

Some Ethiopians say, similar Halo last appeared in 1991. Ethiopia celebrated the millennium (the year 2000) according to its ancient calendar on September 11 2007.

It is believed that this Ethiopian millennium is indeed the real millennium touch stone given that Roman Catholic Popes including Pope Gregory had changed the original Julian calendar (derived from the original Egyptian/Ethiopian calendar) by adding 6 years and 9 months to it.

Many expect that the new millennium will change the negative system which has controlled life on earth dating from the last two millennial.

Many followers of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church who had gathered to welcome the visiting Patriarch of Alexandria, Pope Shenouda, viewed the phenomenon as a miracle, or at least a sign of a blessing from God.

The highest authorities of the church itself appears to support the interpretation placed on the event by lay members. Pope Shenouda, the head/Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church which is closely affiliated with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church believed it was a signal from above.

We accept any sign from God to encourage us in our way,” he said, “and confirm that we are going right in our way.”

Abuna Paulos, the Patriarch of Ethiopian Orthodox Church, gave thanks to God for the heavenly signs.

If God reveals himself from the sky,” he told a press conference, “we believers do not get surprised. We only rejoice and double our efforts to thank God. Thank you, God, for revealing a sign.”

Many spiritualists in Ethiopia and abroad also consider this most unusual of astronomical events to be something significant, given the timing of the year, given the numerous prophesies of the old, and especially given the hallowed importance of Ethiopia as the birth place of humanity.

Even the ever wonderful Beyoncé who went to Ethiopia for the Millennium celebrations, and who had been given a warm reception by the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, is singing her current hit “Halo”, louder than the rest.

These occurrences are certainly very special and significant signs. So, what could happen on Planet Earth in the days, months and years to come? Will Jesus Christ appear again in Ethiopia to rule the earth for the next millennial amidst a flare of red, gold and green colors?
