Revelation 12:7-9 NIV "And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. "
God also indicates he would be involved in this battle also. This is revealed through another scripture where he says "Till I (God) make Your (Jesus) enemies Your footstool" found in the 110th Psalm as follows:
Psalm 110:1,2 - NKJV "The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool." 2The LORD shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies! "
As the battle started in heaven and finished on the earth it does seem reasonable that God, Jesus and his angels would therefore be in close proximity to human eyewitnesses who could unwittingly testify to visible manifestations of their presence.
A search through the Bible for indications of visible manifestations of these that occurred in the past or are prophesied to occur in the future should now be necessary in order to measure them against the testimony provided by actual eyewitnesses of the Tunguska Event.
Jesus did subtly provide further evidence which, we could compare against eyewitness testimony.
This is found in The Gospel of Mark:Mark 8:38 - ESV"For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.""
From the understanding of who would be involved in the battle which we have just discussed it should support this verse as also decribing that same prophetic time that Jesus would return his attention to the earth and become it's king as the verses at Revelation 12:7-9 mentioned.
We should therefore see visible evidence "of his father's glory" (God's Glory) in connection with the eyewitness testimony of the Tunguska event. That God's Glory is something, which can be seen, is verified by Moses in Exodus 17-18 as follows:Exodus 33:17,18 - MSG17 "GOD said to Moses: "All right. Just as you say; this also I will do, for I know you well and you are special to me. I know you by
name."18 Moses said, "Please. Let me see your Glory."
There are several scriptures in the bible, which describe God's Glory.
I have chosen one which attributes God's Glory to a very specific manifestation which we would also hope to find through evidence given by eyewitness testimony of the Tunguska Event if this is indeed the same event that Jesus repeatedly revealed through the scriptures in Mark 8:38, Revelation 12:7-9 and Luke 10:18
Here is the scripture:
Ezekiel 1:28 - NKJV "Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD."
Therefore in connection with the cylindrical object which has already been identified as Satan we should expect to see manifestations of God's Glory which Jesus said he would come with in Mark 8:38. This glory should also be in close proximity to the cylindrical object (Satan) as we would expect this is necessary if Jesus is subduing it (him) and should be like the "appearance of a rainbow".
Here are links to Internet Web Sites, which corroborate this:
==========================================="2.The Tunguska object left no smoky trail like many fireballs, but rather iridescent bands that looked like a rainbow. "
by Academician N.V. Vasilyev"Many eyewitnesses observed a trail of iridescent bands resembling a rainbow."
==================================="Still, many witnesses noticed a trail of iridescent bands looking like a rainbow ."
By Vladimir V. Rubtsov, Ph.D.
"Its shape was mostly described as roundish, spherical, orcylindrical; its color as red, yellow, or white. There was no smoky trail typical of large, iron meteorites, but many witnesses saw vivid iridescent bands resembling a rainbow behind the body."
There are more detailed testimonies in the document provide through Andrei Yu. Ol'khovatov's web site, which can be downloaded in Russian from here:
I have electronically translated this document but with only poor results. The results however do show that the testimonies if directly quoted from this document would likely be more vivid than those found through the WWW.
As expected the eyewitness testimonies corroborate the expectation set through the very words of Jesus Christ recorded in the Bible.
The profundity here is that God's Glory was unwittingly witnessed by testimony of those present on the same day as the extraordinary manifestation of lightning we expected to find through Jesus’ words in Luke 10:18.
I feel confident that denial of the veracity of this would now be going beyond scepticism. However the Bible does indicate this would be the case for many people.

It was Jesus who subdued Satan and cast him to the confines of the earth. (Revelation Ch12)
