It is not too uncommon to hear of a weeping Mary statue. In fact, there are thousands of weeping Mary statue reports every year, with many being frauds. Some, however, appear to have no natural explanation and have not been explained away. In November of 2005 it happened again—this time in the state of California. At this particular event the substance that came out of the statue’s eyes looked like blood. Some have concluded that Mary is sad and bothered because of future trouble like an earthquake, flood or disease. (Of course, we all know these are very common and have nothing to do with anything out of the normal as some sort of supernatural sign.)
Could The Devil Be Behind Weeping Mary Statues?
The effects of a weeping Mary statue have only helped to promote Catholicism. Notice the various activities associated with such a phenomena:
The Effects of Weeping Mary Statues
● Candles being lit
● People with rosaries being seen
● Catholic hymns being sung
Serious Catholic DeceptionHence, the Spirit of Truth (the Holy Spirit) who inspired the holy men of God to write the Bible is not present. This is apparent because the various activities resulting from this wonder are all condemned and have no place with New Testament Christianity. The Rosary especially is antithetical to the command of the Lord Jesus about praying repetitiously (Mt. 6:7,8).
Is it possible that the devil could be the supernatural force behind a weeping Mary statue? Absolutely. Please ponder this passage of Scripture about the false prophet:
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 (Rev. 13:13-15).
Since the devil’s power can make a statue speak, it can certainly make a Mary statue weep. Folks, please don’t be deceived: The New Testament focuses our attention on JESUS and the commands he and his apostles left for us. Devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ is what the Bible teaches. The New Testament doesn’t include, or even allow, for statues such as the ones venerated in Catholicism. This is nothing less than idolatry and a subtle trick of the devil to disobey God when some might think they are doing religious acts that are pleasing to him. Bowing before an image is clearly forbidden in the 10 Commandments (Ex. 20:5).
True worshipers of God worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23,24). We can not do that with or through a statue, even if it might shed tears and promote various unscriptural practices found in Catholicism, including any form of devotion to Mary (or veneration).
Please turn from such practices and turn to the Lord Jesus (without trying to get to him through Mary) before it is eternally too late. The Bible is clear that all idolaters will be thrown into the lake of fire (Rev. 21:8). Don't be deceived by weeping Mary Statues. GOD BLESS YOU.
