John Mowlin is visited by several visions and apparitions (Anonymous 22), which he believes are sent to him by God to do God's work. These continue for some five weeks, and appear to John Mowlin as a man in a coloured coat with "holes in [his] hands and feet," as well as through Voices. These same apparitions visit Thomas Lipeat, who suspects that they are not from God, but from the Devil.(1 - 3)

Thomas Lipeat is visited by a vision of a ball of fire (Anonymous 22), which speaks to him. This ball of fire had "great streams of light" streaming forth from it, and it tells Thomas Lipeat that "The peace of him is at hand." This apparition visits Lipeat on several more occasions, repeating the same words, eventually adding "The Deceiver of Nations was gone forth, and had deceived many; but now the everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ is to be preached; then the Deceiver of Nations shall deceive them no more." However, upon praying, Thomas Lipeat pleads with God "that the Truth might appear," and found through prayer that this vision was "from the Divell." The apparition counsels Lipeat to speak with John Mowlin.(4 - 5)

Thomas Lipeat is visited by an apparition (Anonymous 22) "in a strange form." It asks Lipeat why he has not visited John Mowlin, who will baptize him. However, in the evening, Lipeat has a dream, that these apparitions deceive John Mowlin "in the shape of a man." The Lord reassures him in his dream that Lipeat can fight off the Devil who is behind these apparitions, and predicts that he will be offered money, but that Lipeat should not take it.(5)
