Last night we had Jim Tetlow on Acceleration Radio. We covered a lot of ground and I want to take some time to recap it here. First off, Jim really knows his “stuff.” He’s written two books and produced a very informative DVD – that we’ll send to you free if you buy one of the books from our store – shameless PLUG! His book and DVD, Messages From Heaven methodically explores what the so-called Marian apparitions are. His approach is sensitive, in that he’s not out to bash those who have become seduced by these false images. I realize that there are those of you who read this BLOG that believe that the apparitions are the real deal. On last nights show we went over what the supposed apparition said to the seers. I want to recall several of them so there can be no doubt that we are dealing with spiritual deception. If these apparitions were really Mary then we would see the messages jibe with what is in the Guidebook to the supernatural i.e. the Bible. The problem is this, while the apparition can say 50 statements that seem good and true, it then throws in something that is false and that is pernicious and deliberately deceptive. Here’s an example. The seers reported that the apparition called itself co-redemptrix. It also proclaimed that it had one heart with Jesus. Then there’s the claim that it is “ever-present.” It has said that it was the “door to heaven,” that it is the “ark of peace,” the “ark of salvation.” It then proclaims that it is dispenser of graces! All of this is completely 100% against what the Guidebook proclaims as the truth. We can’t have it both ways. Someone is wrong. It is either the apparition or the scriptures that were handed down to us through the centuries. You see they both can’t be right. In my opinion it becomes very obvious that the apparition is out to deceive and it would appear from the millions that believe in it, that it has succeeded in its endeavor. We are told that even the elect would be deceived if that were possible in the last days. Just because a Cardinal or Pope gives their approval to some of the apparitions, it doesn’t automatically validate them as authentic. Even the elect would be deceived! We are told, warned even to test all things. Tetlow has tested what the apparitions have said and he has come away with the belief, as I do, that this is not the Mary of the Bible, but that entity known as the Queen of Heaven. We are introduced to her in Jeremiah:7 and again in the book of Revelation:17. She proclaims that, “I will sit as queen!” While many who believe in the apparition are sincere in their belief, as demonstrated by some of those who have commented on this BLOG, being sincere about something doesn’t make it true. In closing today’s post I would admonish those of you who are on the fence regarding this to purchase either of Tetlow’s books that includes a free DVD. This is what I do here, full-time. I warn, admonish, report and expose the deception that is all around us. We have books and DVDs that will arm you with the information that is vital in understanding the times in which we live.
