This question is about an unlikely event.
Just like a miracle can mean an act or manifestation of God or a saint, is there a word that means a similar thing, but done by e.g. Satan, or an evil deity?
Not necessarily an evil act in itself, but of demonic origin.

  • How is this not a duplicate of the linked question? Act of God, one of the answers there, would be my suggestion, and generally refers to a bad thing.

Mephistophelian :

  • of demoniac nature. (Collins)

a satanophany:

  • a manifestation or incarnation of Satan; demonic possession (Collins)

also, probably, an apocalypse may convey he idea:

  • an event involving destruction or damage on an awesome or catastrophic scale. (ODO)

"Evil miracle" sounds good to me, or you could intensify it by using "devilish" for "evil." user66974's examples are more literary, but seem good ideas.
