Jesus Seen Inside The Ethiopian Bonfire

Christ redeemed us through His death on the Cross. The Cross has thus become the sign of victory for Christians. It is the symbol of our freedom from evil and our rebirth for a new life in Jesus Christ.

Even after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Cross kept on making numerous miracles among believers. Indeed, The True Cross on which our Lord was crucified is in Ethiopia.

Every year, The Ethiopian Orthodox Church organises a ceremony to light a huge bonfire at Meskel Square in central Addis Ababa.




The above video (+snapshots) segment is taken from this year’s ceremony of setting the DEMERA bonfire in Addis Abeba.

While the Demera is set on fire you can clearly see Jesus Christ (no statue or figure there, just normal eucalyptus wood) standing in the middle of the fire giving an inner feeling of brightness and warmth for all those who are around it, and sending a message to the rest of us.

ከዚህ በኋላ ንጉሥ ናቡከደነፆር በአድናቆት ከተቀመጠበት ዘሎ በመነሣት አማካሪዎቹን “አስረን በእሳት ውስጥ የጣልናቸው ሰዎች ሦስት አልነበሩምን?” ሲል ጠየቀ።

እነርሱም፣ “ንጉሥ ሆይ፤ እውነት ነው” አሉ።

እርሱም፣ “እነሆ፤ ያልታሰሩና ያልተጎዱ አራት ሰዎች በእሳቱ ውስጥ ሲመላለሱ አያለሁ፤ አራተኛውም የአማልክትን ልጅ ይመስላል” አላቸው።” [ዳንኤል 324-25]


Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?”

They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.”

He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” [Daniel 3: 24 – 25]
