10 Great Holidays for 2010


"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord (JESUS), which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty" (Revelation 1:8).

Eusebius of Caesarea is the only Christian HISTORIAN whose writings survived the last great pagan persecution under Roman Emperor Diocletian.

Eusebius preserved his writings by a very clever expedient: he flattered or lauded Emperor Constantine!!

Here is a quote about the number 10 from that great Christian historian:

For the unit is the tenth of ten, and ten units make up a decade, which is itself the limit, the settled goal and boundary of units; it is that which terminates the infinity of number the term AND END of units. (Oration to Constantine).

All the great events in the Bible and history happened at the end of a DECADE:

The Exodus happened 430 years after Abraham entered the Promised Land.
The death and Resurrection of Christ happened in the year 30 A.D.
The Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
The liberation of Rome happened in the year 1870.
