Jesus wins the 700th Olympiad!

Ever since the 2004 Olympics in Greece, the Lord has used the symbolism of the Olympics to spur His people on to run the race and win the prize. I have written many posts about this. Today, to finish the sign from two years ago, Eliud Kipchoge won the marathon.

Eliud is a type of Christ and he overwhelmingly won. Eliud means, “My God be praised”.

Kipchoge showed why he was the man to beat going into Sunday’s race when he took full control as he pushed ahead of the pack after the 30km mark.

By the 35km stage he had jumped out to a lead of 27 seconds from a virtual tie 5km earlier and extended it to one minute and 17 seconds by 40km.

Kipchoge finished in two hours, eight minutes and 38 seconds, coming in one minute and 20 seconds ahead of Nageeye. Reuters

What makes this year extra unusual is the delay of the Olympics by a year due to Covid and also the fires that have burned all around Athens during the Olympics. (Athens is the home of the first Olympics and where these signs began back in 2004. The first post about the Olympics was Aug. 3, 2004, 10 PM, EST.)

Upon a mountain, the Lord with arms spread wide with multitudes at His feet reminds me of this image from the Rio Olympic Games in 2016. The Lord is reflected in the Glassy Sea in the next fractal as the Lord rises up through the Glassy Sea into the heavenly stadium, having finished the race

The fractal is composed of mathematics based upon multiples of seven. It was discovered the same year as the Rio Olympics in 2016

The 700th Olympiad and Olympic flame

Firefighters save Olympics birthplace in Greece as blazes rage around the Mediterranean Los Angelas Times

“The country is facing an unprecedented environmental crisis,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on a visit to the site of the blaze in southern Greece. The fire had threatened ancient Olympia, where the Olympics were held every four years from 776 BC for more than a millennium.

It’s interesting that 2025 is not only the 70th jubilee (70 x 49) from when Israel entered the Promised Land, but 2025 is also 2800 years (70 x 40) from the first Olympics in “776 BC“. 40, 49 (7 x 7), and 70 are all important numbers in the Bible.

Or, another way of saying it is that if the Olympics had continued unabated from 776 BC until AD 2021 inclusive, this year would have been the 700th Olympiad!

The marathon is the climax and conclusion of the Olympics.

“Eliud” overwhelmingly wins the ‘700th’ Olympiad!

“Praise God”; the Alpha, and Omega!

2021-08-08. As Eliud crosses the finish line with no one else in sight, “Omega” is flashed on the screen. “Omega” signifies that “Eliud” is the beginning and end of the race, from Alpha to Omega! Rev. 22:12-14. (“Omega” is the Official Timekeeper.)
