The "MIRACLE" OF HOLY FIRE.
THE YEARLY FAKE "MIRACLE" OF HOLY FIRE.

MIRACLE OF HOLY FIRE
A cheap magic trick, proving the Orthodox are witches and wizards, and freemason type heretics. Why freemason too? The trick is unlikely to be done with a lighter or matches, but by traditional fakery, proving a conspiracy among their clergy at the so called "tomb of the resurrection" (a fake holy site). This proves conspiratorial witchcraft, in other words they are a freemasonry like cult of witches.
The "Miracle of Holy Fire" is faked once a year in Jerusalem, perhaps with matches, a lighter,but more likely with some more antiquated fakery technique, like using a hidden candle, to ignite their torches. One bizarre fact about this is that there may actually be a "secret tradition" about how this miracle should be faked. The more I think about Orthodoxy the more I have started to believe this. At first I thought having entered the modern age they would just use a lighter or matches to fake it and "move on" into the modern age, but now I think it is very possible they have a lamp or candle that is lit beforehand by a fire lighting technique other than matches or lighters because this miracle was apparently first faked before they were invented, and they have a cabalistic secret traditional way of faking the miracle that they feel must be followed. Ironically what this fake miracle actually "proves" is not that God himself is "proving" their religion is the real one by doing this every year, it in fact proves there is a kind of FREEMASONRY STYLE INNER CORE in their false religion.
Another obvious fake is myrrh dripping icons. A Catholic version is weeping statues of Mary, and bleeding statues of Mary. To the faithful this is all as real as the mass bread changing into Jesus. One thing that Protestants, Evangelicals, and Orthodoxy all agree on is the following statement: "The bread and wine turn into the body and blood of Jesus, in the same way as the miracle of holy fire happens almost every year in Jerusalem, and like myrrh dripping icons are real." However by this Protestant and Evangelicals mean that it happens in the same way - because all of it is one big obvious fake, and the followers of Orthodoxy mean it happens in the same way - because they are all true miracles performed by God himself.
The "miracle" of Holy Fire. One big fake.
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
noun [ mass noun ]
a tendency to be too ready to believe that something is real or true.
The Orthodox religion believe in the "miracle of holy fire", that supposedly occurs almost every year in Jerusalem, with such naivety and eagerness, that it is a better example of credulity than it is of faith. It is probably faked in a traditional way, not by using a lighter or matches.
BLASPHEMY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ?
The conversion rate of Catholic and Orthodox priests and bishops to Evangelicalism is not very high. This may perhaps be because when a man involves himself in the faking of miracles in such a cynical manner as "the miracle of holy fire" and "myrrh dripping icons" and "weeping statues of Mary" and "bleeding statues of Mary" and "the mass" or "metousiosis" the person is essentially saying to the world "the Holy Spirit is now doing this fake miracle" which when you think of it takes a great deal of blaphemous arrogance. Blasphemy of the Holy Ghost, it can be argued, is a sin that is never forgiven, as it says in scripture
"But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:" Mark 3:29
It is usually said among born again Christians "if you are worried you have blasphemed the Holy Spirit, it is a good indication you never have," because you are still showing enough respect to him to be concerned about it. A favourite Christian singer of mine Keith Green said in the lyrics of his song I don't wanna fall away from You, the following line: "After all, I've only grieved your Spirit" rather than blasphemed Him. There is a distinct second sin "And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." Ephesians 4:30. But when a group of people deliberately fumble with matches or use some hidden flame (or whatever other sorce of ignition they use) to deliberately fake a miracle to try to deceive millions of people across the world that a false religion like Orthodoxy is true, that preaches that God's offer of infinite salvation, is obtained partly by the administration of bogus sacraments administered by priests, and finite human works, you have to start asking yourself how these people got into such an inner sanctum of cynicism in a religion in the first place. Getting into a low-life inner circle so mind-blowingly cynical in a religion is like the degrees of freemasonry. Perhaps it really is a sign of such sardonic deliberately deceptive insincerity such people really will never recover themselves from such disrespect of the Holy Spirit himself, thus the sin therefore becomes unforgivable from the angle of it never being repented of.
Stop being so credulous!
There is a difference between Faith and credulity. Stop being naive and insincere. The miracle of holy fire is a clear, obvious fake, and you know it. If you are in a religion for ulterior motives then maybe it is best to just admit it. Stop playing games with God. Remember Jesus said: "Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able." Luke 13:24. May will strive to enter and fail, because the lack the key word: SINCERITY. The new testament says that the fulfilled version of the Passover is SINCERITY, quote: "Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth." 1 Cor 5:8. When Jesus died he brought a "new and better covenant" mentioned in Jeremiah 31. This tells us his death and resurrection brings to us the power of the born again experience, the soft heart of Faith, not the stoney heart of religious credulity which is in reality unbelief. If you want to be saved, learn not be be deceived, "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;" Ephesians 4:14. Have you ever realised how naive it is to place the eternal destiny of yourself and your family (by your constant persuasion) on such a clearly bogus annual pseudo-miracle of the "holy fire" event in Jerusalem? Considering the vast extremes of the two eternities God had placed before us? It is time to get real with God, drop fake miracles, and pick up your cross and follow Christ.
OFFERING STRANGE FIRE BEFORE THE LORD:
"And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD." Leviticus 10:1-2
I find it very significant that not only has the Eastern Orthodox religion made up one man made rite after another to create their false gospel and false religion, but like the apostate sons of Aaron they offer up "strange fire" to the Lord by this clearly fake miracle. It is such an obvious fake anyone thinking it is real deserves the eternal Hell that will be their reward for believing something that is not even "strong delusion". One year something went wrong and "God never turned up". Its obvious something went wrong when they tried to fake the miracle.
Has anyone who wears glasses ever brought out the Holy Fire? Just wondering if you would see that as oxymoronic of them.
1,000 Years of deception:
After 1,000 years of deceiving peasants who they kept uneducated by keeping the bible away from them, and saying this is the "proof" Orthodoxy is the "true Faith" the Orthodox now want to use an old trick they have to vindicate their "infallible church". Although almost all of them told the lie this is a miracle, they have had a few sceptics and critics of this false miracle in the church, thus the church has not really taught it??? Fact is modern education shows us all this miracle is a clear fraud, and clearly shows us the Orthodoxy is a fake church.
What is the miracle of Holy Fire?
It Is a "magic trick". It is proof they are in the heresy of "by thy sorceries were all nations deceived" except this is the sorcery of the harlot's daughter. Its witchcraft in other words. Its like freemasonry. It is highly organised religious fraud. This dumb fake miracle was ok for fooling uneducated peasants in the middle ages, kept deliberately uneducated, but now this fake miracle has dated, just like the cretin level fake dummies used for alien autopsies at Roswell. Instead of proof Orthodoxy is the "real Faith" it is rock solid proof it is not!
THE PROSTITUTION OF THE FAITH :
It seems clear t0o me this magic trick (witchcraft) was probably invented to help to convert Zoroastrians to a bogus form of the Christian Faith (Zoroastrians were fire worshippers). It is well known that in trying to convert Eastern religions, with whom the Orthodox were nearer to on the map than Catholicism, they morphed "prayers to multiple gods" into "praying to multiple saints", and copied their heathen shrines to further seduce conversion, but it's less well known they probably invented the miracle of holy fire to interest fire worshippers into converting to their fake form of Christianity, and that they further slaked their lust for multiple gods by inventing the heresy of theosis.
It was the same miracles that made Muslim Khaliphas scared of Christianity and the Son of Mohammed Ali Basha saw it himself and believed in Lord Jesus.
Tens of thousands of Greek and Russian people every year realise the miracle of Holy Fire is one big fake. It happens when they do something called....... grow up.
