Seven Things You Must Anticipate For The 2017 Solar Eclipse

“5.) Prepare for things to get chilly. When 80% of the sunlight is blocked, you won’t notice a difference in brightness, but your skin will. The Sun is so brilliant that the unaided human eye can’t tell the difference even when the Sun is 99% obscured. But sunlight reaching Earth outputs a total of approximately 700 Watts-per-square-meter in the infrared, where human skin is sensitive. By comparison, a fully overcast sky might block only about 65-70% of the heat from the Sun, something your skin will definitely notice. If you’ve never experienced it before, the lack of heat coming from the Sun can feel both surprising and disturbing. Prepare for this the same way you’d prepare for sundown; temperatures may drop by as much as 20-to-30 degrees Fahrenheit in some places over the course of an hour or two.”

On August 21, 2017, the Moon will pass between the Earth and the Sun, casting its shadow onto the Earth’s surface and causing a total solar eclipse. For the first time since 1979, a portion of that eclipse will cross the continental United States, with the path of totality running coast-to-coast and crossing through 14 states. It’s poised to be a record-breaking, breathtaking eclipse in a number of ways. It may turn out to be the most-viewed eclipse in history; it may create the world’s largest traffic jam ever. But it may also be a spectacular sight and experience that the majority of people have never seen. With over 200 million people within a single day’s drive of totality, you can bet that it’s going to be one of the most spectacular events of the entire decade.

Here are seven things you must anticipate for the 2017 solar eclipse, coming this summer to a daytime sky near you!

Today in history: May 13, 1985 - In one of the most outrageous acts of political repression in modern U.S. history, Philadelphia police bomb the MOVE Organization house on Osage Avenue in Philadelphia.

The police attack destroyed two full blocks of homes (65 homes) and killed 11 people, including five children.

THE JINGLE OF KEYS THE SENSATION OF FLOATING AND SEEING A STREETLIGHT FAR OFF IN THE DISTANCE  

MIND BLOWING BIBLICAL ARTIFACTS

Noah’s Ark

  • A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say that the wooden remains they have discovered on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey are the remains of Noah’s Ark. Today the Turkish Government has named this area Noah’s Ark National Park, and visitors can visit it today. 


Tower of Babylon

  • In the beginning the world only spoke one language. People began to migrate to the East and created bricks of clay that helped them build shelters. They decided to create a tower that was tall enough, it reached the heavens. God came down to see the city and the tower the people were building and said “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other". So God made the people speak many different languages so they could not work together on building the city and tower. Then He scattered the people around the world and the city was abandoned. The city was called “Babel” because God confused their languages. The remains are believed to be located in the region of Borsippa. The name Borsippa means, “tongue-tower”, reminding us of the time when God confound the people with different languages and scattered them all over of all the earth. 

Ark of the Covenant

Mount Sinai is the location where Moses was given the instructions to create the Ark of the Covenant, otherwise known as the “Ten Commandments”.

King Hezekiah’s Tunnel

  • King Hezekiah was a very loyal to the Lord and was like no other king compared to his devotion to God. King Hezekiah prepared Jerusalem for an impending siege by the Assyrians by ensuring water for the besieged city but yet denying the source of water to the Assyrian forces. He used the tunnel as a way of hiding and giving the water to his people.

Pool of Bethesda

  • The Pool of Bethesda is located north of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The name Bethesda means “house of mercy”. Apostle John records how Jesus healed a man who was lame for thirty-eight years at the Pool of Bethesda. The water source was a nearby spring and there was a tradition that at certain times an angel would come down and stir up the water. Then the first person to get into the pool after the water was stirred, would be healed of whatever disease or infirmity the person had.  Apostle John provides the detail that the pool had five colonnaded porches. But more recently the Pool of Bethesda has been excavated – it lies maybe forty feet below ground – and sure enough, there were five colonnaded porches exactly as John had described. 

Pilate Stone

  • Pontious Pilate was a Roman controller and tried to convince the crowd being urged by the chief priests and elders, that Jesus was innocent but the crowd still demanded the death of Jesus. Until recently, there was no contemporary evidence outside the Bible for Pilate’s existence. Then in 1961, Italian archaeologists excavating the theatre at Caesarea found this stone inscription of Pontius Pilate. The Pilate Stone is a block 82 cm x 65 cm of limestone with a carved inscription attributed to Pontius Pilate. The stone is significant because it is the only universally accepted archaeological find with an inscription mentioning the name “Pontius Pilatus” to date.

Dead Sea Scrolls

  • The Dead Sea Scrolls are a collection of texts discovered in a series of caves around the site known as Qumran near the Dead Sea between 1946 and 1956. As the story goes, a shepherd by the name of Muhammed Edh-Dhib of the Ta'amireh tribe left his flock of sheep and goats to search for a stray.he found a cave in a steep rocky hillside. Intrigued, he cast a stone into the dark interior, only to be startled by the sound of breaking pots. This sound echoed around the world. He found the Dead Sea Scrolls, one of the biggest discoveries of mankind. These were manuscripts of biblical documents.
  • Over the next decade, local Bedouin and scientific researchers would discover the remains of more than 900 manuscripts in 11 caves (12 if you consider that cave four had two separate sections in antiquity). Each cave is located near Qumran, the furthest one being just over one mile (1.6 km) to the north of the site.
