Gold Dust, Gemstones and Angels

E-mail Print

Gemstones and GolddustBelievers are asking plenty of questions about gold dust, gemstones, angels and other supernatural manifestations. Are these supernatural signs and wonders from the Holy Spirit? Or are they demonic in nature? Randall Grier offers some perspective in this article that separates the holy from the profane. So read on – an get some answers that will settle the questions of your heart.

“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:24). The word “deceive” in this verse means “to deceive by leading into error, to seduce.” The purpose of great signs and wonders by false prophets, or what most people call ministers or preachers, is to deceive or seduce people for the purpose of leading them into error.

Just because something supernatural or miraculous happens does not mean our Lord Jesus Christ is the author of it. Satan has the ability to work miracles also. There is much going on today in the church world in the supernatural arena that is not of our Father God. It is of and from the devil and its purpose is to lead people away from the Word of God and the Lord Jesus Christ into error.

I am not saying that a minister that gets into error, false doctrine and satanic miracles starts off that way or plans to. Adam and Eve started off walking with God, in the beginning. Satan seduced and deceived them and they made the wrong choice. Adam and Eve got into false doctrine because Satan deceived them. False doctrine is anything that does not agree with the Word of God. The goal of Satan is to lead anyone who will follow him away from the Lord Jesus Christ and the Word of God.

Jesus told Kenneth E. Hagin on September 2, 1950, that Satan would deceive many with miracles of Satanic origin in the last days. Jesus told Dad Hagin to follow the Word of God, the Spirit of God, Him and he would not be deceived.

A VISION IN 2000 ABOUT GOLD DUST

I was praying in September 2000, when suddenly I had a vision and received revelation about the “gold dust phenomenon.” Many ministers and Christians declared this was the power of God causing a miracle manifestation. I had heard a little about this but did not know what to think of it, until I received this vision and revelation.

In the vision, I saw something that appeared to be a black satanic cloud spreading from the East Coast of the United States toward the West Coast. The Lord said to me:

“The ones that stand at the forefront of what is called the gold dust and precious gems miracles will be removed from the scene. I have given them space to repent for yielding to satanic spirits and deceiving my people and they have failed to do so. They have made a false step and opened up their lives to the devil.”

It was a lady minister that introduced this to the U.S. and a man minister joined in with her. This vision happened on Friday, September 8, 2000. On Friday September 15, 2008 the lady minister died. That was one week after I had the vision. The man died in July 2001.

I am not saying that they went to hell but they had to be removed. They were removed because they were deceived by Satan and were causing others to be deceived with satanic lying signs and wonders.

I don’t believe either of these ministers set out to be deceived by Satan or to accept satanic miracles as miracles of God. They were both seduced when they accepted something that was not in the Bible. We must strictly adhere to the Bible to keep from being deceived.

THE ORIGIN OF GOLD DUST

The satanic gold dust miracle, jewels and feathers appearing got its start in the country of Brazil. Brazil is a country that is filled with supernatural miracles from false religious cults. Witchcraft, sorcery and the occult are very powerful there. I researched this all myself after the vision I had.

A lady in Brazil came down with a severe form of cancer. In the mid 1990’s she got down to the point of death and her body begin to ooze putrid yellow bile through the pores of her skin. In her desperation for a cure she sought those who claimed to heal in Brazil.

She got better and improved right away. She claimed she was healed by Jesus Christ. The putrid oozing of yellow bile stopped and something that looked like golden flakes and oil begin to appear on her skin. She and others claimed it was a sign from God of His miracle power.

In 1998 she became well known in the U.S. because the lady minister that died had brought her to the U.S. to speak in her meeting. The gold dust lady appeared in this lady ministers Campmeeting and gave her testimony and showed this satanic miracle and became famous.

The lady and man minister’s both died from cancer. The devil placed on them what he had placed on the gold dust lady and they died. Satan seduced them and then took their lives with this horrible disease.

This gold dust movement is coming on the scene again with more lying signs and wonders than before. Do not believe it is from God and stay away from it! It is supernatural but it is the power of Satan.

SATAN PRODUCED MIRACLES LIKE GOD

“And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods” (Exodus 7:10-12).

Moses and Aaron worked a miracle by the power of God. The wise men, sorcerers and magicians of Egypt produced the same miracle by the power of Satan. They were able to perform more miracles just like Moses and Aaron. (See also Exodus 7: 17-22; 8: 6-7)

The power of Satan worked miracles like the power of God up to a point. The rod of Aaron that turned to a serpent swallowed up their rods that turned to serpents. The devil never wins, the power of God is always victorious. Satan can produce miracles that look like God and seem like God but aren’t.

WHAT IS GOD AND WHAT IS SATAN?

Most Christians are not aware of the unseen spiritual realm that over-rides this physical world we live in. Sinners, witches, witch doctors, New Age, heathens, psychics, mediums, sorcerers, tarot card readers and the world in general are more aware of the spirit realm than Christians. It is because of this that is hard to convince Christians of the ability of Satan to work miracles. I had demonic encounters before I was born again so it was no problem for me to believe in satanic power once I was saved.

There are three things that will keep you from yielding, unknowingly, to satanic miracles. The first thing is to strictly adhere to the Word of God (the Bible) and let it be your guideline. If it is not in the Word of God don’t accept it and you will be safe. The second thing is to listen to the Spirit of God that dwells within your spirit. He will not let you be seduced, if you listen to Him. The third thing is to follow the Lord Jesus Christ as you seek Him in prayer.

We have listed about 137 different miracles from the Bible. (Listed at the end of this article.) There are other miracles that took place but they were all in the same category as these listed. I am not saying that the Lord Jesus can’t perform a miracle that is not listed here. I am saying that we should be very cautious about accepting anything that is not in the Bible. Satan will use miracles to deceive you, if he can.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy. 4:1).

“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” (2 Thessalonians. 2:8-10).
