"Tu B'Av preceded by a meteor shower that was first seen in 36 A.D."


The most famous of all the meteor showers is the annually observed Perseid meteor shower.

On August 15th (possibly August 16th due to the timing of the siting of the new moon?) there is the celebration of Tu B'Av.  I think the Perseid meteor shower will be visible to the naked eye on the nights of August 13th & 14th.  According to wikipedeia, "The Perseid meteor shower has been observed for about 2000 years, with the earliest information on this meteor shower coming from the Far East."

"The earliest record of Perseid activity comes from the Chinese annals, where it is said that in 36 AD "more than 100 meteors flew thither in the morning." (source: / emphasis added).

The annual Perseid meteor shower is interesting, but not frightening.  Life as normal.  Yet when we consider it was first observed in 36 A.D. there might be good reason to think there is something significant about it.


Matthew 24 says:  


37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

This passage indicates to me the rapture.  If it referred to the second coming, no one would be acting normally!

Signs in the heavens?  Mankind behaving as normal?  Is there something going on here?

Just something to think about.
