Maitreya Appears to 6,000 in 1988 – Secretly

June 22, 2011 at 12:20 PM

Maitreya – the coming world teacher as the New Age believes – is here.  He appeared to 6,000 in Africa in June of 1988.  He has made other appearances as well.

In listening to many individuals on videos (available on, who testify about Maitreya, the sense that we get is that a particular religion one belongs to does not matter.  What matters is what we do with the teachings of Maitreya.  These folks are also quite sure that this is exactly what Jesus taught as well.

The main push – if you will – of Maitreya has to do with sharing.  According to followers, Maitreya teaches that we should share what we have with all of humanity.  One woman on a video said that this is what we do with members of our nuclear family, so should we not also do this with all humanity since we are all connected through our humanity?

Maitreya’s main concern seems to be feeding the world.  While this was not Jesus’ main concern, it was certainly one of His concerns.  He fed thousands on numerous occasions.  Did Maitreya?  Jesus did so, because it would have been impossible for them to all leave His presence, walk to town and purchase their own food.  They were there listening to Him, so He fed them, caring for their physical need of hunger, in order to meet their spiritual thirst as well.

Maitreya did not do this during his appearance in June of 1988.  He taught that we should feed one another and take care of one another.  Of course, interestingly enough, Raj Patel is a man whose main goal is to feed the world.  Many are coming round to believe that Patel is Maitreya.  To date, he has not officially denied, nor has he officially proclaimed it (as far as I know).

Patel offers a very real concern for the hungry people of this world and he speaks out against the corporate greed that makes it nearly impossible to feed all the people of the world.  What is interesting, in my opinion, is that Patel is thoroughly involved in a subject that all can relate to, yet at the same time, is not overtly political.  What I mean by that is that when we speak of people starving throughout the world, our hearts normally go out to them.  It is not so much a political issue as it is a social one.

Hunger crosses the board and shows no preference for ethnicity or culture.  If you happen to live in a part of the world affected by drought, a lack of food can certainly affect you.  Unfortunately, that is often the case in third world countries, but not always.  Russia’s recent severe drought that negatively impacted their wheat crop is a case in point.  The entire world is affected by that shortage.

Hunger is not like the subject of abortion for instance.  No one stands on the “I think people should be allowed to starve to death!  They should be allowed to do what they want with their bodies!” side, while others stand directly opposed to them.  So, in that way, the entire world supports the idea that no one should go hungry.  Even corporations can get into the “giving” spirit by helping those who do not have much, at least have something.  It’s a win-win situation for everyone, especially “Maitreya” Patel.  Who would dare stand against what Patel is doing?  Who would stand opposed to Maitreya, when his biggest concern is to ensure that all people of the world are fed?

Since 1988, Maitreya has allegedly appeared several times.  As quickly as he arrives, he is gone, there to provide a message of hope and direction, then moving on, allowing that message to sink in.

The unsurprising fact of the matter is the belief that this Maitreya (whom many refer to as “Jesus”) is someone who transcends all religious lines and barriers.  This is actually not true.  Everything the Maitreya teaches is fully in line with the New Age belief system.  Though he does not outwardly reject it, Maitreya does not include orthodox Christianity because of the fact that orthodox Christianity and New Age tenets simply are not capable of co-existing, much to the chagrin of the people who have a bumper sticker that says otherwise.

The tragedy though, is that people truly believe that this Maitreya is the guy for this generation.  He is teaching that we need to join together to accomplish the goals of feeding the hungry and treating all people as our brothers and sisters, yet at the same time, he teaches that we must realize our own deity.  Where have we heard that before?  This is eerily familiar to the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, where Nimrod gathered all people together as one in order to take control of their future.  By building a tower that would reach to the heavens, they would become united in practice and goal.  In doing so, they would release their own inner deity in order to be able to accomplish the very goal that stood before them.  Even God said that once they accomplished that, there would be nothing they could not do (cf. Genesis 11:1-9).

Here’s the problem though.  Aside from being overtly New Age (“I am god, you are god, we are all gods”), there is a much larger issue at hand here.  It is an issue that Jesus Himself thoroughly warned us about.  Because of that, we have no excuse.  That is only part of the reason Jesus warned us though.  The other reason He warned us was so that we would actually heed His message.

What was/is His message in this case?  Simply put, Jesus warned – in the Olivet Discourse – that when He returned, every eye would see Him.  Let’s look at the text, shall we?  He first tells His disciples the following:

Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him. For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.  Behold, I have told you in advance.  So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them.  For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.  Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather,” (Matthew 24:23-28).

Correct me if I’m wrong (that’s just an expression, by the way), but that is exactly what people said when Maitreya appeared to the 6,000 people in June of 1988 in a small village in Africa.  During that event (which was photographed, but not video-taped), we see a man in Middle Eastern garb, walking through the crowd.  He told the leader (a woman who began a church in the village), as he paced off a distance, that people should run the length of that path, then return to her and their problems would be solved.

Since that time, thousands have done just that.  People from all walks of life, Buddhists, Hindus, professing Christians, and others have walked the path (reminds me of walking the labyrinth) to find release from the problems that ail them physically, as well as emotionally or socially.

As far as signs and wonders go, this one was not that great, yet it caused people to obey and to put faith in walking the path.  They come from all over in order to follow in the footsteps of Maitreya.  The woman leader now says she hears “his” voice all the time, very loudly.  She sees things through a type of screen that allows her to know what needs to happen in a person’s life.  Sounds a bit demonic to me.

So we have a situation in which a mysterious man appears, speaks to the crowd in perfect Swahili (without an accent), shares some insights, then literally disappears from them.  Because of that event, thousands are told “he is there!” or “he is here!”  They then go there or here in an effort to find him, or to gain what he allegedly left behind.  But didn’t Jesus say that just as lightning flashes from the east to the west, so will His return be?  What does that mean except that the heavenly light show will announce His return, boldly?

The next section of verses – 29-31 – tell us what Jesus’ actual return to this planet will look like and it is not too difficult to imagine it, based on Jesus’ description of that event.

But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.  And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.  And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other, (emphasis added).”

This particular description is far different from the description of Maitreya’s appearance, isn’t it?  On the one hand, we have Maitreya appearing to a group of 6,000 in Africa.  He’s here, then “poof!” he’s gone.  Did every eye see him?  Did he come in the clouds?  Nope.

On the other hand, Jesus specifically states that when He returns, the entire world will notice.  Why is that?  It is simply due to the event itself as it unfolds.

  1. The sun will go dark
  2. The moon will have no light to reflect
  3. The stars will fall from the sky
  4. The powers of the heavens will be shaken

Take a look at those four things.  That is describing tremendous upheaval in the heavens!  The sun will go dark?  Yikes!  Nothing for the moon to reflect?  Stars will fall from the sky?  The powers of heaven will shake!  Yes, all of that.

That is some fanfare we are reading about.  This is like the race cars revving their engines just prior to the green flag.  I’ve talked to people who have attended events like the Indy 500, or Talladega and they tell me that the sound of the cars’ engines is so powerful, it can actually be felt in a person’s chest.  Imagine that.

Jesus is saying that just prior to His physical return, the heavens are going to get the world’s attention.  Now, if those four things happen, where do you think people will be looking?  Exactly, they will be looking up.

Following those four things, the world will see Jesus coming on the clouds in the sky with what – power and great glory!  Amen!

No one who is alive on this planet will miss seeing that event take place.  Yet, when Maitreya appeared in June of 1988, only 6,000 people saw him.  The sun did not go dark.  The moon continued to reflect the sun’s light.  No stars fell from the heavens (that anyone reported), and there was nothing going on in the heavens that would cause people to take notice.

Jesus promised that when He returns, the entire world will see His return!  So on three counts here, we have Maitreya failing miserably.  First, he appears literally in “the desert” or “wilderness” and second, the entire world did not see his appearance…unless of course the entire world happened to see the story that was written about the event several days or weeks later. Third, this Maitreya seems only concerned about people’s physical welfare.  He does not distinguish between the religions because in essence, except for Christianity (and Judaism from which it sprang), all other religions are from the same source.  That source is Satan himself.  No one likes to hear that about their own personal belief system, but if people would simply take the time to compare their religious beliefs with Christianity, they would clearly see the difference.  As it is, most people think they know what Christianity is and therefore do not need to study it on their own.

A good portion of the world (but not all of it) knows about Maitreya, because Benjamin Creme (Share International) keeps his name out there.  I fully believe there will be many other false Christs as well.  There already have been and some of them are still living today, still claiming to be “the son of God.”  They can’t all be right.  In fact, none of them are right.  They are all liars and false prophets seeking to control the masses and deceive them into remaining on the broad path that leads to destruction (cf. Matthew 7:13-14).  Their time is short though and the demons that animate and instill them with lies that seem to be truth are moving ahead with great speed to destroy any faith in the God of the Bible that people possess.  They will ultimately fail of course.

You may be one of them.  You may think that this Maitreya (or someone else) has the keys to life eternal.  You may fully believe that what you hear from your “savior” is truth, but if you would stop long enough to compare what your “savior” is teaching with all the rest, and then compare that with the teachings of Jesus, you would find that something is completely out of kilter.

The truth is that you really do not have much time.  First, you do not know when your death will occur – no one does.  Second, you do not know when the real Jesus will return.  Yet, you are content to accept the lies that are presented to you as truth because of how those lies make you feel.

Jesus Himself gave you at least two measuring rods to determine truth when it comes to the individuals who are touted as the “messiah.”  How do these individuals measure up to His Word?  I have shown you that they fail in at least three ways.  Yet you persist in hanging onto your beliefs because the idea of submitting yourself to the only God of the universe is galling to you.  No one likes to submit.

Instead, you would rather be as you are, and simply follow someone with whom you already agree.  That requires no change at all.

Okay, so let’s take a look at that for a quick moment.  Maitreya essentially preaches that we should care for one another.  Many people preach that.  What makes Maitreya so special?  Could it be he “appeared” and “disappeared” instantaneously, therefore he surrounded himself with an aura that all other preachers of “save the earth – feed the hungry” policies do not have?  In other words, his alleged supernatural appearance, along with his message to care for one another, made him stand out not because of his message, but because of the way he came and went.

But what about a person’s soul?  What about eternity?  What about all the other things Jesus preached about?  Does all of this get swept away simply because the main thrust of Maitreya’s message is feeding the hungry and he introduced that message with a bit of flare?

I also believe it is very important to do whatever we can to feed the poor, care for the sick, and make people’s lives more comfortable.  However, in the end, none of that gives them what they truly need:  salvation for their souls.

Feeding a person cannot provide salvation.  It can only give them enough energy to hear the message of the gospel, but in itself, cannot provide true salvation.

Maitreya did not take the message far enough, because he can’t.  Like all false prophets/messiahs, he does not want people saved.  He is a modern-day Nimrod of Genesis 11.  He does not want people to come to know the Author of Life.  He is handing out the false hope that if we will simply provide food for the hungry and care for the sick, then we will have what he implies is salvation.

Jesus absolutely took the time to feed the hungry and heal the sick and infirm.  He did it to call attention to the fact that by ourselves, people are not whole.  The miracles of feeding the five or ten thousand, healing the sick, and even raising the dead were done not as an end in and of themselves.  They were done to call attention to the fact that He was/is God in the flesh and also to help people understand that they need what only He can provide.

Maitreya’s message is half-baked.  Feed the hungry.  That’s a great idea and something that authentic Christians have been involved in doing for centuries.  The difference between Maitreya and his followers, and Jesus and His followers is that authentic Christians know that feeding people and caring for their needs is merely a way to help them understand the greatest need they have that cannot be met with physical food and clothing.  The greatest need all people have is that salvation is needed for each and every person and this salvation only comes through Jesus.

Maitreya doesn’t preach that because he can’t.  Apollo C. Quiboloy doesn’t preach that because he can’t.  False prophets/messiahs preach a truth mixed with error, which of course is no truth at all.  Like a good magician, all that these people do is redirect.  They teach people that the most important thing they can do is feed the hungry, or essentially, serve others.

While this is a part of the Jesus’ message, it is not the entirety of it.  The gospel has a message that every individual will have to respond to.  It begins with a question:  who do you think Jesus is?

Either Jesus is God the Son, or He isn’t.  If He is, then to ignore His entire message, truncated like Maitreya and others do, robs us of the chance to hear the truth of the gospel.  If Jesus is not God the Son, then He is obviously no better or worse than Maitreya, who comes to 6,000 people in Africa with a few tricks up his sleeve and tells people that “salvation” is found in serving the people of this world by feeding them.

This is exactly what the Emergent Church is teaching.  They have literally taken the true gospel off the table, replacing it with a social gospel that has no power to save, but causes people to think that they are in fact, working toward their salvation.

This is the biggest problem with false gospels.  When all is said and done, these false gospels simply foist work on the backs of people.  It is work for the sake of work.  In authentic Christianity, we see a need and we try to meet it, always keeping in mind that the greatest need has to do with a person’s soul; in other words, meeting that physical need becomes a means to the end, to introduce people to Jesus.

For those who follow a false gospel, the greatest need becomes the end.  There is nothing beyond it.

My wife and I routinely carry business card-sized gospel tracts that we created and had printed up.  Whenever we go out to eat, we make sure that we leave one of these cards.  We also make sure that we leave a generous tip, because the tip shows our sincerity in recognizing how hard waiters/waitresses work for us while we are at that restaurant.  To simply leave a card with no tip or a paltry tip is actually hypocritical.  It is like saying “be warmed and fed!” and not helping in any way to accomplish that (cf. James 2:16). It has got to be difficult to be friendly and “up” for every customer served in a restaurant.

The Christian who does not try to meet the needs of people, but simply preaches to them, may wind up doing more harm than good.  That’s not to say that God’s Word will return to Him void (it won’t), but it is to say that Christians need to not only talk the talk, but we need to walk the walk.

False prophets/messiahs only walk the walk.  People see what they do and they marvel.  In the case of Maitreya, apart from feeding the hungry, he offers no truth at all, nothing of substance that actually saves people from their sin.  He does nothing that brings them to the feet of Jesus.  Maitreya simply re-introduces them to their Self, already on the throne.  They feel good about feeding the hungry and begin to believe that the very act of feeding the hungry is the good work that provides them salvation.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

What is key is not so much what we do in this life (action or work wise).  What is key is who we know in this life.  Of course, Jesus said it best in the judgment we know as the Sheep and the Goats.

In the last section of Matthew 25, we read of a judgment that is yet future.  It actually occurs after the coming Tribulation.  Jesus has just returned and sets up His judgment seat, as a preparatory measure for His millennial reign.  As people are lined up before Him, they are placed into two groups; the sheep on the right and the goats on the left.

Here is the text from Matthew 25:31-46:

“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.

   34 “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’

   41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44 Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

What is interesting here is that in most cases, the sheep were not even aware that they did things as if they were doing them to Jesus.  They did not realize that by feeding people, giving them something to drink, visiting them in prison, etc., they were actually doing those things to Jesus.

Let’s not lose sight of the truth though.  Jesus is not saying that these people earned salvation through these good works.  That is very clear in another part of Matthew that just because people do the things listed above, it does not mean they actually have salvation.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS,” (Matthew 7:21-23; emphasis added).

It would appear that the one requirement for entering into heaven to be with the Lord is that we know Him.  It is clear that there are people who do many good works, but when all is said and done, they do not ultimately know the Lord at all.  This means not only that they were never in relationship with Him, but He never knew them from before the foundations of the earth!  Isn’t that what He says?  “I never knew you.”  There was never a time when they were in relationship with Jesus – ever.  Their good works amounted to nothing as far as He was concerned because He was not in relationship with them.

So those people who are being taught and buy into the concept that doing things for others is all there is to it, are sadly deceived.  Yet, they can actually become puffed up inside thinking of all the good they are doing throughout the world.  They feel warm all over.  They begin to be filled with a type or pride.  Truly, they have their reward.

Look folks, it is becoming clear that deception is on the rise.  Individuals like Maitreya will continue to appear making claims and boasts that will seem to coincide with Jesus’ teachings.  In the end, they are so far from His teachings that we can honestly say their origin is in hell.

Maitreya showed himself to 6,000 people of Africa in 1988.  He came neither with fanfare or heavenly sights.  He came almost surreptitiously and incognito.  The entire world did not see him.  His arrival was secret, just as was his exit.

Jesus has clearly stated that when He returns, every eye will see Him.  He has also stated that if you do not know Him by being in relationship with Him, you do not have salvation.  Maitreya and others teach that salvation is gained through good works toward others.  This is the very thing that separates Christianity from every other religion.

Jesus says you do not have to earn your salvation because He has made it available to you free of charge.  False prophets/messiahs say that salvation must be earned.

Authentic Christians know that they must be involved in good works, not because those works save us, but because we are commanded to do them (cf. Ephesians 2:10).  We understand that simply preaching the gospel of Jesus to people without caring for their needs normally does not amount to much because people are physical as well as spiritual.  We meet the physical so that we can get their attention enough to meet the spiritual.

Maitreya says that we should meet people’s physical needs; end of story.  Jesus says that you should believe in who He is and what He has accomplished for you.  I hope and pray that as you read this, you will ask yourself the one question that needs to be asked:  what do you think of Jesus?  Is He God the Son, or merely a good teacher with a heart of gold?

I pray that the Lord will open your eyes to the truth of who Jesus is and that you will embrace that truth.  I pray that you will be able to say with Paul that “if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved,” (Romans 10:9).  Will you do that?  Will you at least be willing to do that ?  God bless you as you contemplate the most important decision you will ever make in this life.
