Matthew 28:2-4

“and lo, there came a great earthquake, for a messenger of the Lord, having come down out of heaven, having come, did roll away the stone from the door, and was sitting upon it, and his countenance was as lightning, and his clothing white as snow,
and from the fear of him did the keepers shake, and they became as dead men.”  Matthew 28:2-4

Sometime around dawn, as the women arrived, there was a great earthquake.  Will there be a great earthquake around the dawn of the Millennium?  
“Behold, a day is coming for the Lord when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle. In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!” Zechariah 14:1-5
Aren’t these two accounts similar? An angelic being, white as snow, comes down with a huge earthquake, and they are very afraid. Perhaps this is reading too much into the resurrection morning account, but who knows?
