Jesus. That's one pretty powerful Name! Which explains why so many have used the name to promote themselves, their agendas and their weird ideas to a hungry and desperate public. Some have even claimed to be Jesus! The most recent claim being Jose Luis Jesus Miranda, who preaches from a warehouse in Florida.
Through his numerous interviews he has given we can begin to piece together his beliefs and his history. Jose is 60 years old and born in Puerto Rico. He says he used to be an evangelical.' Prior to becoming an evangelical he was a heroin addict. The way the story goes is that he previously ministered in a drug rehabilitation ministry in Lawrence, Massachusetts. After some years of ministry he began to be disillusioned with the church. In his more desperate moments he claims that Jesus Christ came to visit him one night.
When Jesus visited him, he says that Jesus disappeared and Jesus disappeared into him. This was, to him, the second coming of Christ. Jesus was now living in him. By his own testimony he was a bit slow figuring out what happened at that moment and used to consider that he was the apostle Paul. But after growing some, he finally came to realize in 2,000 - the year he says many were waiting for and looking for Jesus to return - that he was Jesus returned.
One of the "proofs" Jose Luis Jesus Miranda gives that he is Jesus is that he does no signs and wonders. Since the Bible says that false Christs and prophets will perform signs to deceive, Miranda claims that he does no signs and wonders as a 'proof' that he is in fact Jesus Christ.
You know what? Yawn!
There is only one Jesus who is 'the way the truth and the life' and it is not Jose Luis Jesus Miranda!
