Rescue workers and community members from a small Missouri town have a mystery on their hands. An "angel" priest reportedly appeared out of nowhere at the scene of a bad car accident Sunday, performed what is being called a "miracle" and then disappeared.
As time passed, Lentz's condition worsened. Eventually she asked if someone would pray out loud. That is when a gray-haired priest, dressed in all black with a clerical collar and carrying anointing oil, appeared and prayed over the girl.
Shortly after, the rescue workers were able to free Lentz and send her to the hospital. When they turned to thank the priest, he was gone. He isn't in any of the dozens of photos taken from the accident, and no one has been able to identify him."

When my wife asked me to hurry up and watch this news clip the other night, what came to my mind where a couple of Scriptures:
1). Hebrews 13:2: "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
2). 2 Corinthians 11:13-15: "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works."
3). Matthew 24:24: "For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect."
4). 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10: "the coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved."
The Bible is very clear that angels are "ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation," and I have also experienced what I believe to be guardian angels in my own life. The question in my mind isn't if this was an angel or not, but was it an angel of God or the enemy? Many will say: "Why would this be evil, she was rescued and prayed for help?" But if we use discernment we understand that even Satan poses as a minister of righteousness.
Being a former Roman Catholic and knowing they teach an un-biblical Gospel that leads millions away from the true Gospel (Ephesians 2:8-9), makes me wonder if this is not a sign of the times!
It happened to be a "priest" who was the angel which would lead many to give credibility to the Catholic Church and the system it represents for the miracle. Recently, we seen the Pope perform an supposed exorcism that would make many wonder: http://www.youtube.co/watch?v=rNmerd1IDmw
Aren't you putting God in a box? Can't God use anyone or anything to achieve His purposes? Did He not use a donkey to rebuke Balaam? (Numbers 22:28) My answer is that God could never be put in a box or contained, but He would never do something that would lead people away from biblical truth.
I see in these last days the Catholic Church being the unifier of all the religions in the world to form that final one world religion run by the Anti-Christ.(Rev. 17) The False Prophet will do all sorts of false miracles to deceive people (2 Thess. 2:9-10). This is just a sneak peak into the things God will allow as part of His judgment upon the world who did not repent and receive the Gospel. The culmination of these things will happen during the Tribulation after the rapture of Christians.
In conclusion, the kicker was that this angel was dressed as a priest and not an ordinary person as so often they sometimes are after we realize it may have been a guardian angel. This is something we must be careful to credit to God. "The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray." (1 Peter 4:7).
