There are MIRACLES of God and MIRACLES of the devil......
One is for the benefit of the soul....always benefiting the soul!
The other is the benefit of the devil.....to capture your imagination and to deceive all the elect of God.......for this the devil had planned since
It is said.......
"Let no one be found among you … who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium
or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord" (Deuteronomy 18:10-12).
"Watch out that no one deceives you" (Mat. 24:4), because "many false prophets will appear and deceive many people" (Mat. 24:11), "perform great
signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible" (Mat. 24:24).
"Do not turn to mediums or seek out spirits, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God … I will set my face against the person who
turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people" (Leviticus 19:31, Lev. 20:6).
"Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in
witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.
Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord , and because of these detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations
before you" (Deuteronomy 18:10-13).
"When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on
behalf of the living?
To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn" (Isaiah 8:19-20).
"All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month,
let them save you from what is coming upon you. Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the
power of the flame. Here are no coals to warm anyone; here is no fire to sit by" (Isaiah 47:13-14).
"So do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your interpreters of dreams, your mediums or your sorcerers who tell you, 'You will not serve the
king of Babylon.' They prophesy lies to you that will only serve to remove you far from your lands; I will banish you and you will perish" (Jeremiah
"The days of punishment are coming, the days of reckoning are at hand. Let Israel know this. Because your sins are so many and your hostility so
great, the prophet is considered a fool, the inspired man a maniac" (Hosea 9:7).
"On that day every prophet will be ashamed of his prophetic vision. He will not put on a prophet's garment of hair in order to deceive" (Zechariah
Lord Jesus Christ said about false prophets:
"Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. … Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name
drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!" (Matthew 7:20-23).
"He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters" (Matthew 12:30).
he prophecy of the Savior about the last times:
"For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible. See, I have
told you ahead of time. " (Matthew. 24:24-25).
Apostle John the Theologian:
"Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the
world" (1 John 4:1).
"Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but
to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God" (1 Corinthians 1:22-24).
"The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings
come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron" (1 Timothy 4:1-2).
About the antichrist:
"And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his
coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders,
and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved" (2 Thessalonians
Prophecies of the Apostle John about the time of the antichrist:
"He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound
had been healed.
And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men.
Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an
image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it
could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed" (Revelation. 13:12-15).
"But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded
those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur"
About the future capital of the world state (Babylon):
"The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride
will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world's great men. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. " (Revelation.
