The New Jesus

Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda from Puerto Rico is said to be "the second coming of Christ." He has 300 congregations in about 24 countries, counting over 100,000 followers. He has TV, radio, and other electronic technologies at his disposal.

A February 5, 2007, issue of Newsweek said about him, "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."

The Bible tells us in Mr 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: When Jesus returns the second time, people will not be able to say "he is here" or "he is there." His coming will be like lightning from the east to the west. No one will have the time to say "he is here" or "he is there."

When a man comes and pretends that he is Jesus, we must simply ignore him. There have been many even from New Testament days who said they were Christ. These are called antichrists. All we need do is read the Word of God and understand the beliefs and doctrines of these antichrists, and we will not be surprised about their appearing from time to time.

Jesus said in John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. Just as lightning coming from the sky, Jesus will return and receive us unto himself that we may go there to meet him in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Mt 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
