The Word Trumps the Sign and Wonder

Piggy-backing on my last post about a strange potato:

"If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him." (De 13:1-4 av)

The Word of God is enough for the Lord's Sheep. If the "sign" affirms the word, it is not needed. If the sign contradicts the word, it is dangerous. Don't go whoring after signs and wonders.
