The language of the cross may be illogical to those who are not on the way to salvation, but those of us who are on the way see it as God's power to save. 1cor 1:18
There has been talk about Mary appearing in Cairo, Egypt this past December of 2009 . She looks like the Woman adorned with the Sun in Revelations 12:1 . You can find the details and videos of the apparitions HERE if the videos aren't showing .
A Pillar of Fire by night to guide your step
A cloud and/or Sun to illuminate your dreadful gloom by day (Rev 12:1)
I think this is very interesting
The vision behind the name
‘GOD went ahead of them in a Pillar of Cloud during the day to guide them on the way, and at night in a Pillar of Fire to give them light; thus they could travel both day and night. 22 The Pillar of Cloud by day and the Pillar of Fire by night never left the people.’
Perhaps one of the most spectacular and sustained miracles of the Israelite’s wanderings in the wilderness was the continuous presence of 'The Pillar of Cloud by day and the Pillar of Fire by night'
God promises that Israel will again experience this in the times of their restoration.
Isaiah 4:5 Then GOD will bring back the ancient cloud by day and the blazing fire by night and mark Mount Zion and everyone in it with his glorious presence, his immense, protective presence, 6 shade from the burning sun and shelter from the driving rain. (Jesus calls Mary a Pillar of blazing fire by night to guide your step, and by day a Sun to illuminate your dreadful gloom;)
In Nehemiah we are told that the Pillars were to give direction and lead them in the right way and to protect them. The manifest presence of God led them through the wilderness in much the same way that the Holy Spirit will lead God’s people now as they yield to Him.
