Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda is a 60-year-old former heroin addict and ex-convict who believes that he is the living incarnation of Jesus Christ. He refers to himself as both Jesus Christ and the Antichrist and exhibits a “666″ tattoo on his forearm. He has millions duped – and they’re running to tattoo parlors to have the number “666″ permanently engraved on their bodies in order to show allegiance to this convict!
However, Miranda’s theology doesn’t match up with the REAL Jesus.
According to news about Miranda, “Jesus” makes a six-figure income, drinks, smokes, surrounds himself with gorgeous women, and lives in absolute luxury in his latest incarnation. He sports Rolexes, rides around in expensive cars, and he even has body guards!
What makes this self-proclaimed messiah’s message so enticing?
Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda’s message is basic: “freedom to indulge.” He teaches that:
* The devil, hell, and sin are non-existent,
* Prayer is a waste of time, and
* The Ten Commandments (moral or ethical guidelines) are irrelevant.
His followers believe they are God’s chosen people, predestined for salvation, no matter what they do on earth. As such, all other religions’ teachings are rejected, believing that all other faiths are false and must be destroyed — even when Creciendio en Gracia’s marches result in violent consequences. Miranda esteems himself above Jesus of Nazareth. His responses during interviews are startling: “I am greater than him . . . I teach better than him . . . I won’t die. Even if you tried to kill me! I will be president of the biggest government that this earth has experienced. I’m going to change the whole world.”
Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda is definitely not Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Christ means “anointed one” — consecrated, set apart as holy.
* Jesus Christ fervently believed in praying — especially for others (John 17) and in obedience to God the Father (Hebrews 5:7-8).
* Jesus Christ was not selfish thinking only of himself. He chose to lay down his divine nature and be a human sacrifice, concentrating on God’s broken relationship with man, and died on the cross to repair that relationship, shedding his blood to pay for our sin.
(Hebrews 1:3; 2:14-15)
* Jesus taught with the goal of honoring God (John 7:16-18).
The Bible warns extensively of false teachers, those who practice deception (Matthew 24:4-5, Colossians 2:8, 1 Timothy 4:1-2, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, 2 Peter 2:1-3). The Scriptures also tell of Jesus Christ’s Second Coming to reunite all believers eternally with God (Matthew 16:27, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, Revelation 1:7-8). Do not be deceived. Jesus Christ’s divine nature is unchanging. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas” (Hebrews 13:8-9).
Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
2Co 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
1Jn 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (six hundred threescore and six equals 666) (emphasis mine)
