Christ is the important one.
"A Christian does not announce himself; he proclaims another, prepares the way for another: the Lord. A Christian must know how to discern, must know how to discern the truth from what seems to be the truth but is not there - a man of discernment. And a Christian must be a man who knows how to lower himself that the Lord may grow, in the heart and soul of others." - Pope Francis on the Nativity of John the Baptist
It seems to me this is the purpose of 'messages from Heaven' as well - to prepare the way of the Lord.
