The Bible is a supernatural book.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Those who were used to write down the words of the Old and New Testament had experiences with God, visions, dreams, and heard the voice of God. How do we know they were accurate? Much of what they said was fulfilled and many would agree that the other prophecies are in the process of being fulfilled.
Visions and spiritual experiences are not limited to those who were instruments in writing the Old and New Testament. Many who dedicate themselves to seek the Lord have experiences of one kind or another.
Here is some information about St. Mary Magdane de Pazzi (of Pazzi). She was resting and entered into a vision of Purgatory. Actually, the way I stated that is not correct. She was “recreating”, in other words, relaxing with her fellow sisters in the convent in a garden (There were no televisions, movies, videos or cell phones then). An angel asked permission to take her on a spiritual journey. She agreed.
That description of the process is actually more accurate than saying she simply “entered into a vision of purgatory”. God does not impose His will. He asks. Angels are messengers, servants of the Most High. The angel came with a message from the Most High God.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. John 13:20
Why did it happen to her and not another? First, she said “yes”. Also, she was not too busy to stop what she was doing to shift gears and do what God was offering at the moment. She was willing to stop doing what she was doing and pay attention to what the Lord was saying.
A person can get so headstrong, self-willed, rebellious, prodigal and busy that when God comes to them, they either do not hear or do not respond. It is necessary to realize that there are steps in the process that cause people to have certain experiences from God.
And of course, she was already dedicated to the Lord, spending hours in service, prayer, and study daily or weekly following the convents rules. So she was not a random accident and this was not a random accident. The parts of the puzzle, the preparation was in place for this incident to happen.
It is extremely important to note that she was dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ and that is why she had a godly experience. We are not talking about someone who was seeking an experience through satan-worship, witchcraft, or magic. That kind of evil seeking opens the doors to problems and curses.
