 'The Miracles' by Todayinah Ed.
Todayinah Editor Todayinah Ed. says, If you're interested in viewing samples of my other work why not visit Todayinah site.

December 31

In 1999, on this day an amazing discovery was made by a US expeditionary team operating at the summit of Mount Ararat in Turkey.
An installment from the Miracles thread.

Fourth MiracleThe wreckage of Noah's Ark had been located by a satellite. But amongst the debris, the American scientists discovered the skeletal remains of humans, animals and Nephilim, the giants who inhabited Canaan according to Numbers 13:33.

The mission was immediately upgraded from top secret to ultra secret. Because the US Government intended to reverse engineer the DNA in order to construct the super-soldier of the future. Ironically, the first deployment would be in Iraq, within close proximity of the location of the Garden of Eden.

December 29

In AD 1, on this day Herod the Great (pictured) entered the town of Bethlehem at the head of a column of heavily armed troops.
An installment from the Miracles thread.

The First MiracleThe magi from the east had travelled to Judea in search of the newborn king of the Jews, having "seen his star in the east". The King, Herod the Great, directed them to Bethlehem, and asked them to let him know who this king was when they found him. They found Jesus and honored him [1], before returning to Herod as promised.

Set upon a ruthless act of infant homicide from the outset, Herod firmly intended to eliminate his rival. But as he was bathed by the holy light of the Star of Bethlehem, God's voice spoke gentle words of peace to him. He fell upon his knees with hot tears of joy racing down his cheeks, before rising to enter the stable and honour the Lord. Because something had been missing in this harsh world, but finally, it had been fulfilled [1].

December 30

In AD 1, warned of the impending massacre of the innocents, Joseph and his wife Mary took flight to Egypt with the baby Jesus.
An installment from the Miracles thread.

The Second MiracleBut they are captured and casually executed by Herod's soldiers. The orphaned infant was then passed to the Roman trooper Tiberius Iulius Abdes Pantera [1]. His orders were to update the detailed records required by the Roman Client King Herod. Because he wanted to make absolutely sure that the baby king did not slip through the net, grow up to become a rival and supplant him.

But instead an angel spoke to Pantera and he fled with the child. His fellow officers only uncovered his absence because of a mysterious note he had left on the child register - Pantera wrote that something had been missing in this harsh world, but finally, it had been fulfilled [2].

Little is known of the fate Pantera although his tombstone was found in Bingerbrück, Germany in 1859. But the coming of Jesus to Western Europe was a different matter altogether, it was quite simply the greatest story ever told.

December 25

On 12th of Tevet, 3761, Zechariah's cousin Yeshua was born in Galilee. He had Elijah's spirit, and turned many to the Lord.
An installment from the Miracles thread.

Third MiracleBut the truth of their birth stories was withheld from them by their foster parents. Only years later while serving as a Rabbi did Zechariah finally discover that his mother Elizabeth had pleaded with his dumb-struck father to name him John - but to no avail, even though he had lost his voice because he questioned the will of Jehovah. The angel had said "I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news. And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens, because you did not believe my words, which will come true at their proper time" (Luke 1:19-20).

But as a result, when he did proclaim the arrival of the Messiah he did so from within the very heart of the Orthodox Jewish community. And took his rightful place amongst the Great Prophets of the Tanakh.
