The Trumpet of Gabriel
Author Michael Brown
In Nepal, a large cross-shaped cloud is reported by a Methodist evangelist. It then changes from a cloud into a fire and suddenly an image of the Lord supposedly appears on a flaming cross. From the former U.S.S.R come reports of supernatural lights -- heavenly luminosity -- seen by thousands.
In Africa, Jesus reportedly appears in dreams to dozens of non-Christian villagers. From all parts of the world, especially the West, come an avalanche of angel sightings. They appear as spirits of light, fleet and airy, or as spirit helpers in the flesh-mysterious strangers. Some arrive with swords, others with soft-spoken advice. They too have a message; indeed, the word "angel" means "messenger." The message is that society must reform itself or face the consequences.
