It is interesting that the Catholic Church itself claims that it does not know whether it is from God, Satan or man. “Catholic Church officials do not seem so much concerned with why the statue of the Virgin Mary appears to be crying oily tears or where the tears may be coming from — God, Satan or man — but, Winder said, the diocese is monitoring the response from the community. ‘That, in all honesty, is what’s most important — that it’s prompted people maybe to be closer to God,’ the deacon said. ‘That’s what really matters.’” They go on later in the article to say: “If it’s not man-made,” he said, “that leaves two possible sources — Satan and God. All we can say at this point is what it is not.”
The Bible clearly warns us in these end times to not be deceived, and this is the very System we are being warned not to be deceived by. Any “church” that points to Satan as a possible source of light to prompt people to be closer to God, is as false a Christians Church as you can find. They are pointing people to another god, another Christ, another gospel, and the Bible warns us to “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Revelation 18:4-5.
God does not want any to be lost. He is pleading for people to come out of the false systems of worship (apostate Roman Catholic and Protestant, as well as paganism, spiritualism, atheism, etc.) which will lead straight to destruction. He desires all to know and accept the truth of His great, unmerited gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, to repent and be saved. The signs and wonders are going to increase in Satan’s great final attempt to take as many to destruction with him as he can. Do not be deceived. Study your Bible, know what God says, do not follow any teachings of men that are not supported by the Word of God.
Thessalonians 2:3-12 (KJV) “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
