Too Many False Messiahs Here Now? Just Wait…

Jesus or False Messiah?

Jesus or False Messiah?

We all know that there are false messiahs around. There is at least one in Australia, two in the Philippines, and several in the United States. The common thread is that these individuals all believe they are Jesus Christ. Many have followers into the thousands so obviously the people who follow them religiously (no pun intended) believe the lie as well.

Jesus seemed to make things pretty clear about the end times and the false messiahs that would come to the fore. In Matthew 24:4-5, Jesus stated in response to questions posed by His disciples (regarding the end times):

See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many.

We read the words of Deuteronomy 13:1-3a that say the following about false messiahs or prophets (“dreamers”):

If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams.

Notice in this section of Scripture Moses (the human author) does not say that the prophecies of false prophets do not come true. He readily acknowledges that the signs and wonders offered by the “dreamer” may come true. However, this should not be enough to convince people that the individual in question is correct or on the right path, or truly of God. Usually, these people will teach people to go after other gods, which is nothing more than idolatry. God warns the Israelites (and by extension, the Church) of the severe dangers of idolatry. We should avoid it at all costs because there is no God except Jehovah. All others are wannabes.

So who do we have standing up today claiming to be Jesus?

  1. Apollo Quiboloy (the Philippines)
  2. Alan John Miller (Australia)
  3. Sergey Anatolyevitch Torop (Russia)
  4. Wayne Bent (in jail in New Mexico)
  5. Inri Cristo (Brazil)
  6. José Luis de Jesús Miranda (Miami)

What I notice about these individuals is that they have a tremendous amount of confidence in what they say. They twist Scripture just as easily (and confidently) as if I was riding a bike. There is no hesitation. Miranda says that the church has been preaching a lie. He says there is no sin anymore, that true Christians don’t sin. Quiboloy says something similar at least for himself, by stating that he is done with sin.

Here is a video highlighting José Luis de Jesús Miranda. One of the things I don’t understand is why the security detail surrounding him. Isn’t he God? Jesus didn’t need security from other human beings. If someone tries to hurt him or kill him, is he afraid he won’t come back to life?

The fascinating part about all of these individuals as well as Miranda (as someone I’ve just recently heard about) is how they are such magnets for people who surround them in droves. They soak up every word uttered by these individuals and they do so because there is a very real emotional component involved here and I believe Satan uses that to the utmost to bring about the type of deception that he wishes to use on unsuspecting individuals. It’s almost as though a specific aura encapsulates these false messiahs that tends to disarm people so that they don’t even use any critical thinking skills (if they have any) but simply give into the emotional storm that’s coursing through their emotions.

All at once, these followers are affected by tremendous feelings of “love” or “peace” or something similar and before they know it, they are willingly following any one of these false messiahs, completely ignoring any red flags that might go off in their brains.

In the case of Apollo Quiboloy, he believes that he is Jesus Christ on earth and that God will eventually recreate the world into another Garden of Eden. Of course, the start of that garden is at Apollo’s own living complex where he has a five-bedroom home on manicured acreage. Just down the road past the walls that surround (protect?) his property are shanties and the poorest of the poor.

All of these “messiahs” have one thing in common, besides the fact that they are living lies. They trap people through emotional bondage. Emotions can be extremely powerful and if allowed, will carry us away to destruction all based on “if it feels good, how can it be wrong?” Feelings should never, ever be the engine that drives the train or vehicle. Critical thinking, knowing Scriptures and by them, knowing God is what is to guide us in this live.

Emotional virtue is one of the biggest tools the enemy of our soul uses. He uses it as he recreates society. He has been using it as he creates the change in society that he wants to occur, eradicating traditional/biblical values and replacing them with values that are not based on absolute truth, but on feelings.

This is what every false prophet or false messiah does. They have no truth so they play to peoples’ emotional response. If they can get people to let go of their thought process so that they will be guided by how they are being made to feel, the false prophet or messiah has won.

We must never allow our feelings/emotions to guide us. Never. It doesn’t mean we don’t have and exhibit feelings. It means we do not allow them to be our “brains” when we actually have a brain for that job.
