Theories regarding the second coming of Jesus Christ have been making the rounds on the internet. While the Mark of the Beast prophecies have long existed, they have begun to gain steam in recent months after global events coincided with predictions made in the Bible as well as prominent peoples of faith.
However, one story from Africa has caught the attention of many believers. It was shared by the Public Health Department, Ministry Of Federal Capital Territory Area 11, Garki, Abuja and allegedly involves a newborn girl.
Newborn Child Carried Message Of Second Coming?
According to People Magazine South Africa, the child was born at the General hospital in Kubwa, Abuja. What was peculiar about the birth was that the girl’s hands were joined in a prayer position.
The doctors informed the child’s parents that she must undergo an operation to separate her hands, to which they agreed. The operation seemed simple enough, with the hands only joined by a layer of skin.
However, nothing prepared them for what happened next. When her hands were separated, they claimed that the words “Jesus is coming back” were written inside it. After which, the child died of reasons that cannot be explained medically.
This led many to believe that the child’s only purpose was to deliver a message about Christ’s second coming.
Mark Of The Beast Prophecy Confirmed?
While the incident did not pertain to the Mark of the Beast prophecy, it did happen in a country where the Christian faith is being tested. Nigeria has been enduring a long and bloody war against Islamists lead by ISIS-sympathizer Boko Haram.
However, the validity of the story is still in question; no reputable news agency in Nigeria has reported the story. As of now, the story is considered a hoax no matter how inspiring or tragic it is.
Nevertheless, Mark of the Beast prophecies are still prevalent among believers now that conditions for the second coming have been fulfilled. While these prophecies should not consume their everyday lives, people are still urged to be vigilant in these ever-changing times.
