1 Dead and 800 Injured as the masses are whipped up in a demonic frenzy to touch the idol that is said to have ‘Miraculous Powers’!
Excerpts The Christian Post – At least one person is dead and 800 others were injured in Manila, Philippines, where 3.5 million barefoot Roman Catholics followed a blackened statue of Jesus Christ, known as the Black Nazarene, which is believed to have healing powers.
AFP reported that the one known death so far was of a former jail officer, who suffered a heart attack after attempting to climb onto the carriage pulling the centuries-old statue.
The Black Nazarene, brought to the country by Spanish missionaries in 1606, is believed to have ‘miraculous powers,’ such as healing people who touch it from illnesses. Others seek blessings and forgiveness for sins.
Reuters reports that other processions and religious rites are held across the largest Catholic nation in Asia, with as many as 105 million believers celebrating the major feast.
Some devotees swear that touching the Black Nazarene has made a great difference in their lives.
“My child is now a medicine graduate,” one believer named Rogelio Lim told Reuters.
“I have been spared diseases. I have been blessed with a house. Everything we wished for. A good job. Everything. This is why I am here, to thank Him,” Lim said.
Alvin Carlos added that he felt stronger after he touched the statue.
“Rain or shine, I gained the strength to continue because of my strong faith in Him,” the man said.
Msgr. Jose Clemente Ignacio, the rector of the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene, quoted Archbishop of Manila, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, when describing the great devotion to the Black Nazarene: “To understand the devotee you have to be a devotee. Only a devotee could best understand a devotee.”
“Here in Quiapo Church you can witness many stories of the faith of the people, those who are patiently lining up for seven hours without any complaints. They just want to pray and touch the image of Black Nazarene. There are huge queues for confessions,” Ignacio added.
Mass injuries and deaths have been reported in past processions as well, with close to 100 injured during the 2017 event, while in 2016 two people died.

If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!
The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.
The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!
Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
