Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

Baby announces that Jesus is coming

A bizarre story is circulating in the Internet among Brazilians:

“In a public hospital of Itaguai, Rio de Janeiro, on this weekend a baby girl was born with the hands glued together, as if she was praying. The doctors told the parent that they would operate the hands of the girl on a very simple surgery. It was simple indeed, because as it seems the hands were only joined by some skin.

But when they opened the hands of that baby… you won’t believe what was written on them… “JESUS IS COMING!”

The doctors started to cry and soon everyone in the hospital too. The city of Itaguai is abuzz with it. People who distanced themselves from church are coming back and others are accepting Jesus as their savior. God brought that child to the world only to send that message, as some hours later she died.

Forward this message to most people you can”

The local hospital already denied the rumor (in Portuguese), which is clearly just religious propaganda with a classical chain letter sign. It’s not even that new. For a few years already, a popular Brazilian folk music group “Calypso” is also being cursed by a rumor that circulates on almost every city they plan to perform on.

The story tells that a baby with three eyes was born on a local hospital. When the doctor says how ugly he is, the recently born baby then quickly and clearly replies: “Ugly will be what will happen on the Calypso show“.

Some shows had to be canceled, mainly on small cities where those rumors devastates the chances of anyone attending the event.

    let us take this incident into deep consideration,whether u like it or the lord jesus christ is coming soon,lets not get crazy now and lose our minds because he is coming to take us to better place. Repent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. gavin June 9th, 2008 10:23 pm

    my name is gavin kelleher, im 13 years old and am an acknowledged , but not fully devoted, christian. the question is not whether this incident took place , the question is why has it taken this to cause members of nation wide societies return to church. if this child had not been born there would be less people in church today. and if it was a rumour, the morale is still the same , i have often hoped for the return of such a religous figure as jesus to prove to those people foolish enough to need proof that there is but one god, and his name is god, father of the rumoured to return jesus. contact me on [email protected]

    If anything I can say this cab is rare
    But I thought ‘Now forget it’ – ‘Yo homes to Bel Air’

    I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
    And I yelled to the cabbie ‘Yo homes smell ya later’
    I looked at my kingdom
    I was finally there
    To settle my throne as the Prince of Bel Air

    Forward this message to most people you can”

    the coming of our Jesus Christ is at hand, let these sound as a warning to all sinners.

    i wish eveybody we unstanding the positive and negative side of this event and yield closer to God almighty in true repentance of soul and prepare for the end time.

  10. Anyna June 24th, 2009 1:51 pm

    He is the true and living God that is Jesus Christ. Accept him today and for those of you who are playing with sin STOP immediatly because he’s comming back soon. Believe It……

  11. Chris August 31st, 2009 8:54 pm

    this should not scare anyone,its simply the fulfillment of prophecies in the bible.
    it should be known that at this end time,strange things will happen.
    i am in Nigeria,there was a case of a goat giving birth to a half human, half goat baby.
    it is real,it happened some kilometers away from where i reside!
    just repent and live right.

  12. Piet Mashita September 4th, 2009 8:49 am

    The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back soon, i mean He warned us while he was still on earth to be ready always. i believe the story of that child who was born with a message on her palms, God will use just everything even nature and extraodinary occurances to speak to us and alert us to repent and be ready for the coming of Jesus,let us repent from every form of sin! and be ready always because He will come like a thief.

  13. Sharlene November 20th, 2009 12:22 am

    I believe that the child came upon earth to send a message to us from god that Jesus Christ our saviour will be returninq soon. The rapture is comming so everyone has to be prepared. This is a day to rejoyce for Jesus is returning and taking us to a better place. Get ready for the RAPTURE!!!

  14. Sean December 8th, 2009 9:07 pm

    God exists and Jesus is real. Heaven and Hell are both realities. The fact that a man does not understand “gravity” does not mean that it is not there. If one breaks the law of gravity he’ll pay for it. Similarly if one ignores God and His Way of salvation he would regret in the hereafter. How we need to be closer to God thru Jesus Christ.

  15. Jaco January 23rd, 2010 2:55 am

    I do not know what to say … How can a person spread false rumors like this and call him or herself a Christian? I know some people will say that it doesn’t matter whether it is true or not but I have always been taught that a person should be honest. I do not think that God will approve of this hoax. Jesus never lied to people just to make them believe!!!

  16. Calvin January 28th, 2010 4:13 am

    Trully and really, Jesus is coming.I do beleive what has been seen by the doctors.JESUS IS COMING!!!

  17. Emy February 9th, 2010 12:26 pm

    Oh my goodness people! Yes Jesus is coming back, the bible says that he will come back like a thief in the night, therefore we should be prepared whether it is today or tomorrow or whenever! But what annoys me is hoax like this that are there just to scare people!!! God is love, just, compassionate! I don’t see such a God as the one I read about in the Bible, cause a little newborn so much deformation, having to go through a surgery and then simply die!!! What a defamation of the name of my wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, what a scandalous way to mishandle the image of my amazing God!! This story is plainly contrary to the word of God! Yes Jesus is coming but God would never use a child like that to bring forth His message! Yes people have died at the hands of their persecutors because of the message of Jesus! But never God had stricken to pain and death His messengers!!!! What is wrong with you people! You say you know God then act as if you do know your God. Be wise and check hoax like this one against the word of God!!! This is ridiculous and scandalous! Makes me sick that maybe some so called Christian would have spread a lie like that and in that way probably driven more people away from God by depicting such a cruel and false picture of God! I am thankful for His word which is the only way that I test what I hear to see if it is really the truth or not.

  18. Luke May 29th, 2010 5:53 am

    Hats to Emy, the world needs people like u to waken all tese so called holy & religious people who believe anythng & to the extend of making false propaganda. Grow up people where is your faith taking u. You all call yourself faithful but i say unto U, WAKE UP & live life in reality…tis is all internet BULLSHIT dnt use CHRIST into tis…thks

  19. almaki July 23rd, 2010 2:15 pm

    yeh, keep waiting for him to comebackk!!!!? The hospital where the false rumor supposed to have taken pllace, has already denied the false rumor. Those who spread such false rumors, have never showed you any proof of their false story whatsoever, they have even killed the baby, the main thrust actor of their false story, after a simple surgery !! Why? If you ask for evidence, well she is already dead and six feet under?!!! Simple bullshit, but there are those simple people who still believe in such bullshit, eventhough the hospital has refuted such bullshit.

  20. Ullyz August 20th, 2010 6:39 am

    What a great God!! God can use anything to tell His peoples about His return in this world but lots of people don’t believe it. But the TRUTH is, HE WILL COMING BACK ANYTIME no matter what people said.

  21. Tariku Anega October 27th, 2010 8:50 am

    I was surprised by the news when I first heard it. But I didn’t take it forgranted as it can be rumour alone. However, I believe that Jesus will come back as he confirmed in the scripture, so we do not need any more evidence. The question is “so what?”

  22. Claire 28 Octobre 2010 October 28th, 2010 5:38 am

    Eh bien mes chers amis, pour les croyants, des faux-messages ont été toujours transmis maintefois, qui a confirmé que cet enfant était porteur d’un message du Seigneur, même si l’enfant était mort, est-ce qu’il n’avait pas moyen de faire une étude sur son autopsie?

  23. garry October 29th, 2010 4:28 am

    “jesus is coming back”.. that right, but this storry is lie.. like Emy say. for who make this storry, you make a big mistake and sin

  24. Peter November 30th, 2010 9:56 pm

    I am surprised that some people think it is a lie! If they actually believe that Jesus died and rose on the third day then this story will not be strange or sound untrue.

    Jesus in Matthew 24 said before his second coming there will be signs to herald it so why worry about this? My question is why should somebody create a story like this? To what benefit will the writer get for creating such a story if it is not true?


  25. zaki December 2nd, 2010 10:31 am


    Thank you for circulating this information. In the light of the information it contained, I would like to point out some salient facts that we could think about.

    The veracity of this incredible story is hotly contested. Many are scared and terrified while searching for verification and validation.

    But why the story, why the claims and counter claims and why the significance attached to it. I think that every true Christian should think deeply about what moves him/her at this end time.

    Beware of rumours that take away the focus on Jesus. The lessons we can learn from this story are so many and obvious.

    1. This sort of story only creates a temporary fear and a hypocritical response to the Gospel.

    2. Anyone who has heard of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ does not need the death of another baby to believe.

    3. This is a distraction from the sacrifice of Jesus at the cross, which the world is an enemy to. The death of Jesus is all that we need.

    4. It is amazing that people could believe this and propagate it as a way of preaching the gospel to make people come to church. Let not the gods of this age blind anyone’s eye from the precious gift of life from Jesus at the cross. Jesus is coming.

    5. Let us spend our time in His presence studying the word and be ready for His coming.

    Thank you

  26. Gedion February 2nd, 2011 1:25 pm

    Is true? Yes or no? Photo’s ?

  27. Lalmalsawma March 6th, 2011 9:58 am

    so…be ready to face Jesus,he will soon come….

  28. Tessy March 14th, 2011 8:23 am

    It doesn’t matter whether it’s true or not. Of course, we all believe that Jesus is coming again and He is coming soon..
    In addition, let us recall Jesus words in Matthew 24 – 25: “No one knows the day or hour, not even the Son of Man,” and that some will claim he is in the desert or in the mountains, “but do not go to look for me” because he will come in clouds of glory and every eye shall see his coming when he does. False prophets will arise and deceive many – indeed many false prophets are here today – wolves in sheep’s clothing, and others who have made prophecies that have not come true. Jesus warns us to beware of false prophets and we are taught that if even one prophecy does not come true, the prophet is not from God but from Satan.

  29. willian June 12th, 2011 2:49 am

    To prove this fact,please shown us the picture of the word that be write down on the baby hands.
    actually i got confuse that is it true or not.

  30. TONYE September 27th, 2011 8:36 am

    the story abt the girl with glued hands might be truth or false,but the fact remain that”this same Jesus who you see taken into heaven,will come back in like manner as you see Him go into heaven”one of these days,the heavens will open and the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS will appear with HIS host of angels,the dead in CHRIST will rise first then we who are alive shall be cut up to meet JESUS in the air and so shall we ever be with HIM.So get ready HE is coming very soon.Even so come Lord JESUS

  31. Seandy October 6th, 2011 7:47 am

    I am devoted Christian,
    but I think this is hoax.
    Miracles must be assured as valid signs,
    by photo, testimony, data, etc.
    Without explicit information, this story should go
    directly to trashbin.

    Faith must come together with reason.

  32. Lorraine October 8th, 2011 4:04 pm

    In Jamaica 1978 a baby boy born with both left and right together. The doctors tried to open the hands of the baby boy which took several days for the doctors to open, the same thing was written in the baby boy’s hands Jesus is coming. The baby died soon after. The baby’s mother went a became a christian. The picture of the baby was shown with the message in the jamaican papers and also was on the news.

  33. atama October 28th, 2011 9:13 am

    we don’t now about this stuff, true or not.
    But the fact is JESUS is coming soon.

    The sign in Mark 13..
    Prepare yourself, the time is very close…
    And purified yourself.

  34. nicole February 12th, 2012 4:36 pm

  35. Elodie February 29th, 2012 9:56 am

    hello !
    my name is Elodie…
    I’m suprised about this story, I wish I could see it with my own eyes.. A friend of mine told me about this yesterday, so I’ve searched all day, and I found the story, but there is no pictures…
    It’s OK, but I’m so confused, I wonder if it’s true or false.
    My father is a muslim, and my mother is a hindoue, some of my relatives are christians, and some jews. My grand-mother told me that Jesus-Christ is coming soon, and that if we are not prepare to go with him, we will suffer in this world, and that the Antichrist will rule the world…. Oh, I’m so scared, I don’t want to be stuck in this foolish world, and I don’t want to burn in hell either… Can you tell me what should I do ? Must I go to a christian chuch and give offerings, or should I convert myself with a priest or a pastor, I don’t know… And if Jesus is the true and only God, I am ready to accept him, but please show me the truth… Thank you…

  36. Jaco March 1st, 2012 2:50 pm

    Hi Elodie

    Sorry to tell you this but this story is a hoax and never happened. I’m not sure what kind of a person would create a lie like that. Some people here really want it to be true but unfortunately this story is a lie and should not be used by you to choose a religion. I can’t tell you what religion is true but I do know from life experience that if you make a decision based on fear it never works for you. I also think that questioning something first like you did is a very mature and intelligent thing to do.

    Take care.

  37. milyn March 9th, 2012 11:52 am


    need not to fear.
    absolute truth is that Jesus will definitely come back but no one can tell the exact time/date/year it will happen.
    Jesus loves humanity and don’t want anyone to perish.
    BIBLE is the exact reference in all your queries.no more no less.f u can find a bible be diligent enough to search for truth.
    God bless you.

  38. Joy Dulnuan Binwag March 14th, 2012 3:29 am

    ,,,thank You Lord for even though we are to playfull with our christian Life still YOU are doing things to save us,,thank you for always reminding us that u had already prepared a better place for us who believe and continue to stay under YOU care,,keep us Oh Lord from the works of the enemy,,spare our family from eternal punishment,,In Jesus Christ name

  39. Babes March 16th, 2012 2:59 am

    Whether this story is true or false,is not the question now. The Bible tells us that Jesus will come again, when, where, no one knows so the best we all should do is to prepare ourselves by following HIM, be guided with what we read in the Bible and trust that Jesus will handle the rest.
    TRUST HIM with all your heart and soul!
    God Bless!

  40. Tunde May 13th, 2012 6:56 am

    I know you guys really wish for this miracle to happen and went to the extent of falsifying it.Oh! Are you jealous of islam verifiable miracles?

  41. naomi August 12th, 2012 5:12 pm

    I requested for the pic of the child and her parents to show that what is said is the truth,,,but no pics where showed.I’ll apretiate it if u prove it with pictures,,,and bear in mind that two wrongs can never make it right if u r lien to people about this so that they can pray harder,,,,,if u want ppl to pray just preach to them n don’t lie to them cuz ul end up being just like them.

  42. Lagbaja October 16th, 2012 9:52 am

    Hello Elodie, i’m very sorry i laughed when i read ur message, may GOD forgive me, what you need ??? do is confess Christ Jesus as ur personal Lord and Saviour and Believe He died for the Remission of our Sins that we may have everlasting life , and Pray in the Mighty Name of Jesus ??? lead you ??? A church you can worship him in Spirit and Truth…God Bless.

  43. Da-silva October 17th, 2012 6:51 pm
