Who is Maria Divine Mercy?

(Originally published in March 2013)

Maria Divine Mercy is an Irishwoman who claims to be a prophetess who receives visions from Jesus and Mary pertaining to the future particularly the end times.

Why am I telling you this? She has quite a following (17 689 on Facebook, and who knows how many read her blog) and is, I believe leading many astray with her "prophecies" which she claims to receive from Jesus and Mary. Reading these very disturbing pieces smells of Satan: there is always a wee bit of truth mixed in with every lie, but enough of a hook to make it all sound credible.

Jimmy Akin published
"9 things you need to know about Maria Divine Mercy
", that make it clear that she is a false prophet.

She had predicted that Pope Benedict XVI would be forced to resign, and that the conclave would pick the false prophet to succeed him. Since the conclave she has posted-without saying his name- that Pope Francis is the false prophet spoken of in Revelation.

Look at this, and compare it to what we know about Francis:

Maria Divine mercy writes:


There is to be a particular insult, which will be inflicted upon My Holy Name, in an effort to desecrate Me, during Holy Week. This wicked gesture, during Holy Week, will be seen by those who keep their eyes open and this will be one of the signs by which you will know that the imposter, who sits on the throne in My Church on earth, does not come from Me.
My followers, you must know that the prophecies given to the world – warning of the time when the power, within My Church, will be seized by those who are loyal to the beast – are upon you. The time is now.
Remember that those who proudly display the badge of humility are guilty of pride. Pride is a sin.
Those who say that My Church must renew its image, update My Church’s doctrine and who say that, by modernising it, that this will be accepted by more people, then know this.
Those of you who say that you follow My Teachings, but who want laws changed to condone acts, which are sinful in My Eyes, get out of My Church now. You are not Mine. You have turned your backs on Me and are not worthy to enter My House. Yet, this is what will happen. You and all those of you who demand changes, which are embraced by the secular world, will be satisfied, for the false prophet will entice you into his favour and you will applaud every moment of his short lived reign. But, it will not be I, Jesus Christ, Who you will follow. You will be following a false doctrine, not of God.
So many will embrace the reign of the false prophet and push Me to one side with joy in their hearts. Then when the errors of his ways become apparent, My poor sacred servants will have nowhere to turn. Their sorrow will turn to fear and their fear will turn to despair. They won’t know who to trust, but they must understand this. My Body, My Church, may be scourged and desecrated but My Spirit can never be touched, for It can never die.
To those of you who reject My Word now and the Truth you are being given, as a special Gift from Heaven, I bless you. I will continue to pour My graces over you until you come back to Me. I will never give up until I can save your sorry souls.
So she claims that Pope Francis is an imposter. I stand in awe of her great wisdom which trumps that of 115 Cardinals. Not. It would take an airtight and vast conspiracy to pull something like that off, and the odds are a mathematical impossibility that even a dozen, let alone 77 could be in on such a conspiracy.
When has Pope Francis ever suggested that he intends to modernize church teaching, and update doctrine? Even if he had ever said such a thing, here's a little newsflash- he does not have the authority to change any church doctrine in the slightest.

Here is what Pope Francis has said on matters of church doctrine especially pertaining to morality:  Sounds pretty orthodox to me.
talk about Judgment : Who is she to say that Pope Francis isn't genuinely humble?  As to charges found elsewhere in her "prophecies" such as him exalting himself above Jesus I have not heard a Pope before stress the primacy of Jesus and His death on the cross as emphatically  as Francis has.  What i am seeing is not false humility, but a genuine imitation of Christ.   Pope John Paul could easily be accused of the same thing Read up on his life and eschewing of  the trappings and creature comforts of the world as documented  by Jonathan Kwitny in "Man of the Century" and George Weigel in "Witness to Hope" .
All of Maria divine mercy's "prophecies are flawed to one degree or another. Not one of them is a true hit. There is just enough vaguery to make them believable to many.

Well, the litmus test comes this month. she has predicted the following for Holy Week. Note the wiggle room she left herself:

There is to be a particular insult, which will be inflicted upon My Holy Name, in an effort to desecrate Me, during Holy Week. This wicked gesture, during Holy Week, will be seen by those who keep their eyes open and this will be one of the signs by which you will know that the imposter, who sits on the throne in My Church on earth, does not come from Me.

She does not tell us what this 'insult' will be. so when nothing happens she can wiggle out  by incorporating into her next prophecy where it will be revealed in greater detail.

There is one simple thing to remember that should be enough to protect you from falling for false prophets: Jesus Christ Himself said "The gates of hell shall not prevail against My church" .
And if a pope ever tried something resembling an abomination of desolation, don't you think that even in a church that has been infiltrated, that SOMEONE would call him out on it?
The test of a prophet is that they must be 100% right 100% of the time. What i see here  is someone whose track record is not much better than the astrology column in your daily newspaper... and probably has the same source, the father of lies.
