Recently, people saw some cloud formations that many assumed was "an angel" , perhaps to give confirmation to the appointment of a pope.
First of all, such natural occurrences are too trivial to be interpreted as God's divine message. It is human presumption.
Secondly, from God's Word, the Bible, we know that God never used such visible signs for flimsy reasons or for display.
The last and final visible Message of God was His Son, Jesus Christ made Flesh. (John 1:14) and He was sent for the purpose of our Redemption - our rebirth into the kingdom of God.(John 1:12)
God always required from us the choice to turn and seek Him with our heart, not with our eyes.
"You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13)
Seeking and finding God requires FAITH, not sight. Faith that needs to see in order to believe is NOT faith.
"Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." (Hebrews 11:1)
Jesus Christ Himself said we must believe without seeing. "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe." (John 20:29)
True faith relies on what God says in His Word because God's Word is Who He is. "It is impossible for God to lie." (Hebrews 6:18)
Let us build our faith on the foundation that is God's Word. It is eternal Rock, unshakable Truth, and Light to our path. It is the living Bread that will nourish our souls and Power of God made alive through faith.
Pray that the clouds of falsehood and error will not get into our eyes to dilute that which God's grace has made plain.
"Sanctify them by the Truth; Your Word is Truth." (John 17:17)
