Another Antichrist: Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda

 

And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you, for many shall come in my name, saying , I am Christ, and shall deceive many” (Mt.24:3-5).

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all this is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie: That they all might be dammed who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – (2 Thes.2:3,4,10-12).

 

   There is an article in ‘Newsweek’ – Feb.5, 2007 entitled – ‘He calls himself God.’ I quote “At first glance, the congregation gathered in a warehouse in Doral, Florida, seems like a typical Hispanic evangelical group. There’s the 10-piece band, the singing and swaying, the whooping and hollering. But look a little more closely. There is not a cross in sight. The lectern is emblazoned with a near replica of the U.S. presidential seal, except that it reads in Spanish, GOVERNMENT OF GOD ON EARTH. Off to the side stand three burly guys in dark suits with Secret Service-style earpieces. When a door by the stage opens, the guards leap into action. They surround the man with slicked back hair who emerges and escort him to his seat. When the crowed spots him, it goes wild. People chant, Lord! Lord! Lord! It quickly becomes clear that they’re referring to him. “It’s Jesus Christ himself” a preacher on stage announces. “Let’s welcome Jesus Christ Man.” In the raptures eyes of his flock, Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda is, in fact the second coming of Christ. As the head of the ‘Growing in Grace International Ministry,’ he presides over a sprawling organization that includes more than 300 congregations in two dozen countries. He counts more than 100,000 followers and claims to reach millions more through a 24 hour TV channel, a radio show and several web sites. He works as a pastor spreading his doctrine: that under a new covenant with God, there is no sin and no Satan. In 1998, de Jesus avowed he was the reincarnation of the Apostle Paul. Two years ago, he declared himself Christ and just last week he called himself the Antichrist and revealed a ‘666’ tattooed on his forearm” – unquote.

 

   Members of his church recently went to a tattoo parlor and were tattooed with ‘666’ on their ankles, forearms, backs and necks to prove their commitment to Miranda. “This is a congregation of Antichrists,” Miranda said, drawing whistles and cheers. They are under strong delusion.

 

   I checked his Web site and it says – ‘The man Christ Jesus, Dr. Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda, is coming to the USA! The King of Kings, and Lord of Lords has arrived in America.’ This is a blatant false Christ, and antichrist, and shows that we are indeed in the end times and soon will come the translation and rapture of the saints and then ‘the’ Antichrist will be revealed.

 

   Like ‘the’ Antichrist, this little antichrist is possessed by devils. Hear what he says happened to him one December night in 1976. He says he awoke to find himself flanked by two brawny men who told him: “The King of Kings is coming to anoint you.” Before he knew it, he was standing in a luminous marble corridor where trumpets blared and a spectral figure crept toward him. Then the apparition merged with him, and he began to hear a man’s voice in his head, ever since.” This is devil possession, pure sand simple.

 

   At his religious service they play party music that puts those in attendance in a cultic swoon. When he speaks they all shout and swoon like a demonic rock concert. He dresses in expensive suits and puts on a con-job deceiving the people. He’s a real good actor. He knows how to work the crowd like a carnival barker. He has mastered the skill of trickster talk. He talks of liberty, of being able to do anything a person wants because they are under God’s grace and they cannot sin and there is no Hell and no Devil. He shows them the way of living by grace by sinning all they want and they will not be dammed. So he gave his church the name ‘Growing in Grace’ – (See Rom.6:1,2).

 

   His followers are going about to establish his government, his kingdom on earth. The official emblem representing this new kingdom, Miranda claims God has sent him to set up, is nothing but a close replica of the U.S. presidential seal with ‘666’ on the two bottom corners. This worship of this blatant little antichrist who uses ‘666’ and claims outright that he’s ‘the’ Antichrist, shows that the world is already under strong delusion to believe the lie of Antichrist. And the delusion will get stronger and stronger as the true Antichrist emerges on the world scene.

 

   De Jesus enters places with a security detail that resemble the Secret Service, clearing the way. He is like a rock star and a head of state. He says “I will be the President of the biggest government that this earth has ever experienced.” No, he won’t – the President of the U.S. will be. De Jesus is just preparing the way for the President-Antichrist soon to come. And that’s why the Devil is showing de Jesus with a replica of the Presidential seal and Secret Service-like security men. People are being programmed to worship the President-Beast soon to come.

 

   The strong delusion promised by God in the end times upon all those who reject the truth in Christ is already operating and it will get stronger during the next years. And people will follow the President-Beast by the millions and worship him and his image and they will live wicked, sinful, ungodly lives just like the followers of this little antichrist, de Jesus. They believed not God’s truth in Christ because they had pleasure in unrighteousness. “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – (2 Thes.2:11,12).

 

   The word this false Christ De Jesus uses for his possession by devils is ‘integrated.’ He said “The Lord came to me and integrated with me.” The saints of God,  saved and  born again, know that the mark of the Beast will be a computer chip tattooed in the forehead or right hand. A computer chip is called an ‘integrated’ circuit. Integrated and Anti-christ go together like mark and beast – amen.

 

The word ‘integrate’ also points to the U.S. and blacks and whites and especially our churches that have failed to have integrated membership. We have many white churches that won’t have blacks in them and we have black power churches that won’t have whites in them. The church of Jesus Christ should be an integrated church. Segregation in the church is a heresy and must be condemned as such. God is no respecter of persons, God is not prejudiced. Oh, if the church would let their light shine and show this country and the world that in the church, we are no respecter of persons. But all who are born again are accepted into the church – regardless of skin color. Our marching orders from our Lord is to preach the gospel to “every” creature and when they got saved they should be allowed to join the church.

 

   But when a person (no matter his skin color) gets his heart washed as white as snow in the blood of Christ, we have fellowship with him and love him as a brother in the Lord. We are all separated and segregated from God by sin (Rom.3:9) and this is the only segregation we need to fear. Our black hearts full of sin need to be washed white as snow. Sin separates us from God, not the color of our skin. Sin is the problem, not skin.

 

   The Jewish nation was segregated from the Gentiles in the Old Testament because of their uncleanness. Gentiles lived unclean, sinful lives. The Jews were to be separate from infidels and unbelievers and the ungodly. And kosher (clean) food was just one way to show this uncleanness. That’s why Peter (Acts 10) was fasting and had a vision of unclean creatures and God said to him “kill and eat.” God was cleaning up the unclean Gentiles and washing them clean from all their sins in the blood of God’s dear Son. The church, Jews and Gentiles, all colors, all peoples, all nations can be saved and become one in Christ Jesus – “For he is our peace, who heath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us” – (Eph.2:14). Peter got the message and said – “Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons” – (Acts 10:34).

 

   Our black and white hatred in the U.S. and our failure to love our neighbor allows the Devil to take advantage of our evil and bigoted hearts to divide our nation. “Every kingdom divide against itself is brought to desolation” – (Mt.12:25). Our nation was divided over blacks and whites during our Civil War and barely survived, and it may happen again. God may send us an Antichrist to rule the U.S. as President as judgment upon us for this wicked sin of segregation. Yes, ‘integrated’ points to ‘666’ and the mark of the Beast and to U.S. integration and civil rights. Mene, mene, tekal, peres – “Thy kingdom is divided.”

 

   Are you saved from your sins and born again by the Holy Spirit? Has your black heart of sin been washed white in the blood of God’s dear Lamb – the Lord Jesus. It’s sin not skin – the inward not the outward that God cares about. Repent of your sin and believe on Christ in your heart by faith and receive forgiveness of sins. Believe God’s truth in his beloved Son. Believe the truth in God’s Word. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” - (Jn.3:15-17).

 

   Remember that strong delusion is already coming upon those who believe not God’s truth in Christ and they are believing antichrist’s lie. Do not spurn God’s precious love and grace in His beloved Son.
