The LORD has brought over you a deep sleep: He has sealed your eyes (the prophets); he has covered your heads (the seers).
Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'"
Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see.
For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
"Unless you people see signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe."
