False Christs

For in those days there shall also arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch, that, if possible, they shall deceive the very elect, who are the elect according to the covenant. (JS-M 1:22)

False Christ candidate #1 (of many): Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda

In the rapturous eyes of his flock, Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda is, in fact, the second coming of Christ.

A native of Puerto Rico, de Jesus, 60, spent his youth drifting from the Roman Catholics to the Pentecostals to the Baptists. Then one night in 1973, he says, he awoke to a vision of two hulking men at his bedside who announced the arrival of the Lord, who, says de Jesus, “came to me and integrated with me.” In the early years after founding Growing in Grace in Miami in 1986, de Jesus didn’t claim to be Christ. Instead, he worked as a pastor spreading his doctrine: that under a new covenant with God, there is no sin and no Satan, and people are predestined to be saved. But as his following expanded, his claims did, too. In 1998, de Jesus avowed that he was the reincarnation of the Apostle Paul. Two years ago at Growing in Grace’s world convention in Venezuela, he declared himself Christ. And just last week, he called himself the Antichrist and revealed a “666” tattooed on his forearm. His explanation: that, as the second coming of Christ, he rejects the continued worship of Jesus of Nazareth.

False Christ candidate #2: Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is the new “Christ” of Scientology, according to leaders of the cult-like religion. The Mission: Impossible star has been told he has been “chosen” to spread the word of his faith throughout the world. And leader David Miscavige believes that in future, Cruise, 44, will be worshipped like Jesus for his work to raise awareness of the religion.

“Like Christ, he’s been criticised for his views. But future generations will realise he was right.”

Other false Christs worth of mention: Guru Maharaja Ji, Sun Myung Moon, and Apostikane.

Jesus was right.

Note: Don’t dwell on this stuff too much. It’s definitely a spiritual sinkhole. It is important to be aware that such servants of the devil exist in our day and are actively promoting their agenda, but one should not dig deep into this filth.

    there’s no greater anti-Christ than Sun Myung Moon. The dude was coronated in the Senate of the United States with a bunch of Congressmen present for crying out loud! He’s got Senators in his pocket. He’s got the Washington Times and Insight Magazine as his ways of getting his message out. The Puerto Rican dude is small fry next to Rev. Moon.

    Someone ask Senator Hatch what he is doing hanging around with Rev. Moon all the time…..

    Moon owns 1.5 million acres of land in Paraguay, adjacent to a very large plot of land which GW Bush allegedly owns. Moon is a large Bush contributor. See http://www.spingola.com/Paraguay.htm.

    I have co-workers and friends who have claimed GW Bush himself is divinely inspired to bring about the prophecied end-times in the Middle East. (I don’t believe in GW’s divinity in the least.)

    Don’t forget the Maitreya

    I’ve read in various places that Maitreya and Apostikane are one and the same. Frankly, I don’t care enough to find out for sure…

    Just a note about Maitreya. Several years ago I started looking for info about him. I found someone claiming to be a channeller who allowed this so-called spiritual leader to commune with us, through her. So it seems, or at least at that time it did, that Maitreya was not completely flesh and blood in the same way you and I are. I have to admit that after reading that stuff, I lost all interest in him what so ever.
