|People are flocking to a Catholic church in the French Riviera after it was reported that worshippers have been seeing visions of "Jesus" and "Mary" appearing to them. Members of the church state that they have been seeing the apparitions for the past six months. Those that claim to have had the experience have started having convulsions and vomiting, after which the apparitions talk to them. The Vatican has apparently been informed of the phenomenon, and is taking an "open view" (in other words, don't condemn it if its making money). |
Quote: "Church-goer Rita Gomez, who helps run the prayer group, said: "The visions usually begin with the whole building trembling in the middle of a prayer meeting. "Then various worshippers will fall off their seats shaking violently or being sick. When they come round a few minutes later, they say Christ or the Holy Virgin has appeared and spoken to them." One 14-year-old girl had fits and began smashing windows, then began bleeding 'pinkish-yellow' blood, Miss Gomez said. She added: "This might sound like the work of the devil rather than God, but everyone who experiences a vision says it was Jesus and Mary that appeared to them."
I would say Miss Gomez's assessment hit the nail on the head. Unfortunately these experiences are not unique to the Catholic church. This whole phenomenon started off with Brownsville and the Toronto blessing some years ago, and has since spread throughout the world and is a sign of the days we are living in. Our generation has grown so cold, they are no longer willing to "test the spirits to see whether they be of God", 1st John 4:1. Thus we have whole congregations being led astray by satanic influence right in the middle of the church. Is it any wonder that Satan is permitted to enter the sanctuary, when we have put the Lord outside the door? (Revelation 3:20). Friends, the "signs and wonders" movement is just the beginning. The Bible states that during the tribulation period, there will arise a false prophet who will deceive the whole world with "lying wonders" such as we are witnessing today.
The Lord said that these wonders would be so convincing, if it was possible they would deceive even the Christians (Matthew 24:24). Thank God that it is not possible, as the Holy Spirit and the Scriptures witness to us what is of God and what is not. But the unbelievers are deceived, and no surprise, because even Satan himself transforms into an angel of light to deceive people.
2nd Corinthians 11:13-14
We need to be very careful what we believe.
