TWSC: The Seal of the Living God

The messages of alleged visionary “Maria Divine Mercy”, referred to as “The Warning Second Coming” (TWSC), make a series of false claims about the Seal of the Living God described in the Book of Revelation. But before we consider these false claims, let’s first review the truths taught by the Sacred Word of God on this topic:

[Revelation]
{7:1} After these things, I saw four Angels standing above the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that they would not blow upon the earth, nor upon the sea, nor upon any tree.
{7:2} And I saw another Angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having the Seal of the living God. And he cried out, in a great voice, to the four Angels to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea,
{7:3} saying: “Do no harm to the earth, nor to the sea, nor to the trees, until we seal the servants of our God on their foreheads.”
{7:4} And I heard the number of those who were sealed: one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed, out of every tribe of the sons of Israel.

From Sacred Scripture, we learn the following truths about the Seal of the living God:

1. The Seal is a visible mark on the foreheads of the servants of God (accompanied by interior gifts).

2. The Seal is given out by the holy Angels of God.

The Seal is not given out by human persons, nor by claimed prophets, nor by visionaries or locutionists, nor can it be obtained by saying certain prayers, nor by downloading a file from the internet. The Seal is dispensed by Angels from God.

3. Those who receive the Seal are given the number 144,000 (which is 12 times 12 thousand), representing the 12 tribes of Israel. This symbolism indicates that those who receive the Seal are from every part of the Church.

4. The event described in Revelation chapter 7, in which the Seal of the living God is given to the faithful, occurs “After these things….” (Rev 7:1), in other words, after the events of chapter 6, which include the events of the first six Seals of the Seven Seals.

Now let’s compare these truths from that Book of Truth called Sacred Scripture
to the false claims being made by “Maria Divine Mercy” and her alleged messages.

First, this visionary and her messages claim that the Seal of the living God is given out by the visionary and her messages. This claim contradicts the teaching of God’s Holy Scriptures that the Seal will be given out by holy Angels from God.

Second, what is more absurd is the means that the visionary claims can be used to give out this alleged Seal: it is an Adobe Acrobat PDF file, downloaded over the internet, with a picture of a wax seal on what looks like a certificate:

Sacred Scripture says that the Seal is given out by holy Angels. This claimed visionary says it is given out by a download of a picture of a seal over the internet. Who are you going to believe? — the Holy Spirit’s teaching in the Bible, or a claimed anonymous visionary? You cannot believe both. To accept the claims of this visionary is to reject the teaching of God in the Bible.

Third, the Bible tells us that the Seal is given out to a vast number of persons throughout the Church, and perhaps even to servants of God outside the visible structure of the Church, such as to faithful Jews. The number 144,000 is symbolic, indicating a very large number of persons, in every part of the Church.

But the Seal supposedly given out by “Maria Divine Mercy” is only given to the followers of her claimed private revelation. There are hundreds of unapproved claimed private revelations in the world today. Many are false, a few are true. The claim that only this one private revelation dispenses the Seal contradicts, in principle, the teaching of Scripture that the Seal is given out very widely, to every part of the Church and even beyond her visible structure.

Fourth, several other visionaries have also claimed to give out the Seal of the living God. Christina Gallagher claimed that the Seal of the living God was obtained by visiting her ‘house of prayer’ in Ireland. Barnabas Nwoye claimed that the Seal of the living God was given out through his claimed private revelation, by reciting certain prayers at certain times on certain days. Joyce Ann Wagner of Burbank, California, claimed that the Seal of the living God was given out by visiting her house of prayer. And other visionaries have made similar claims.

Alleged visionary “Maria Divine Mercy” is merely the latest in a series of false prophets who make the same false claim. Why it is false? because Scripture says that the Seal is given out by Angels.

Fifth, Sacred Scripture says that the Seal of the Living God is given out AFTER the events of the first six Seals of the Seven Seals. The first four Seals are the same as the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The next two Seals are very severe afflictions for the Church and the world. These events have not happened yet, and so the Seal of the living God has not been given out yet (with one exception, see below).

Even the claimed messages of “Maria Divine Mercy” say that most of the events of the first six Seals have not happened yet. And so this visionary is contradicting yet another teaching in Sacred Scripture. Scripture says the Seal is given out AFTER the events of Revelation chapter 6. But this visionary says, “No”, the seal is being given out BEFORE those events. Why do you believe her, instead of the Word of God?

Sixth, the Seal of the living God includes a visible mark on the forehead.

Why does the Antichrist, in the distant future, try to force his followers to accept a visible mark on their foreheads (Rev 13:16-18) with his name or number? The reason is that he is imitating, perversely, this great event in the pilgrim journey of the true Church, in which many of the faithful are given a visible Seal on their foreheads.

But the alleged Seal of the living God in the claims of all these many alleged visionaries is not miraculous, includes no mark on the forehead, and therefore is nothing but an empty promise from a false visionary.

Fr. Zlatko Sudac

Does anyone yet have the Seal of the Living God? I believe that only one person currently has the Seal of the living God: Fr. Zlatko Sudac — his Seal of the living God is a visible mark on his forehead, a cross that sometimes bleeds miraculously. The mark appeared on his forehead in 1999.

“Fr. Sudac received the cross on his forehead in May 1999, on the Friday after the beatification of Padre Pio. After he received the cross, he was sent to the Gemelli Clinic in Rome to be investigated. The exhaustive investigation concluded that Fr. Sudac’s cross was not of human origin, i.e. that it was formed in a way that medical science could not explain. Fr. Sudac received the stigmata on his wrists, feet and side on October 4, 2000, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi…. ” (St. Jerome Catholic Church)

In my eschatology, I speculate that Fr. Sudac is the long-awaited future Pope, called the Angelic Shepherd. He is the only person on earth so far to have received the Seal of the Living God. It is a visible miraculous mark, given to him by God by means of His holy Angels. He alone has been given the Seal of the Living God prior to the events of the tribulation because he has a special role, as a future holy Pope, in guiding the Church through the tribulation.

Here is what the Seal of the Living God actually looks like:

When it is time for the holy Angels of God to dispense the true Seal of the living God to certain persons among the faithful, then and only then, will this holy priest — who by then will have become Pope Raphael — say a public prayer to God, asking God to send out His Angels to the faithful to dispense this same Seal, which he has already received. No one else has yet received the Seal of the living God.
