California pastor Danny Goia and wife Daniela claim they've received a sign from god in the ghostly image of a veiled woman hovering in the background of a photograph.
The couple, who preside over First Romanian Pentecostal Church in Anaheim, said the photograph came to them through a member named Radu.
Radu declined to appear in person for television news crews, but explained that he had taken a picture of a co-worker at an Irvine warehouse two weeks ago and saw the figure floating over the man's shoulder.
Radu claimed not to have altered the image in any way.
Radu and his wife were recently baptized at the church and married later that day.
'The next day was when this photo was taken,' Daniela told CBS 2.
'God is trying to reveal to the people before something major will happen,' Danny Goia added.
The pair believe that the image is both a message from God and an angel watching over their new member.
Danny Goia presented the image to his flock on Thursday during church service, admonishing them to prepare for big events.
'God wants to say, 'Hey, get ready. Get well with me because something good is gonna come soon,' he said.
Why would God want to show him/herself as something that looks more like the Angel of Death?
Surely if it was God, a more pleasing and self assuring image would have been more appropriate?
You would think that in the circumstances with half the world killing itself and others over religion, God would have a better platform elsewhere to do good than appearing as a `selfie` in some religious persons photograph?
The image looks actually to be a reflection of the glass/perspex in the background.
But as always, you decide for yourselves.
