It seems that Jose de Jesus is bringing Judgment to Puerto Rico. As I have said before, he sure has an angle on marketing techniques that put many a cult leaders to shame. This announcement was found on his website:
Jesucristo hombre, Dr. José Luis de Jesús Miranda, el juez de todos, viene a traer justicia a Puerto Rico, desenmascarando la maldad del sistema religioso corrupto y declarando justos a sus escogidos.
Este 17 de diciembre, el mundo será testigo de la segunda venida de Cristo. El Rey de Reyes llega a suelo boricua. Puerto Rico será el escenario donde cientos de personas presenciarán en vivo, mientras millones sintonizarán vía satélite, el evento que marcará el rumbo de la historia.
Te invitamos a corroborar las evidencias de que Dios yá está en la tierra, y la labor que Él está haciendo, la cual hemos resumido en estas páginas.
A rough translation of the above declaration states that:
Jesus Christ (man), Dr. Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda, judge of all, will come to bring judgment to Puerto Rico in order that he could unmask the religious corruption as well as the evil that resides in the religious system, all this while declaring all of the chosen as “just.”
This December 17th the world will be a witness of the second coming of Christ. The king of kings will touch upon the boricuan land. Puerto Rico will be the stage where hundred’s of people will witness “live” while millions will watch through satellite tv the event that will put a mark upon history.
We invite you to corroborate the evidence that God is already on earth and that we have resumed the work that He is doing on these very web pages.
This has an eerie similarity to the past failed Jehovahs Witness’ prophecies. As Matt Slick from Carm.org points out, all of these were declarations of similar second comings and judgments that really left the Watchtower organization in shame:
1897 “Our Lord, the appointed King, is now present, since October 1874,” Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 4, page 621.
1899 “…the ‘battle of the great day of God Almighty’ (Revelation 16:14), which will end in A.D. 1914 with the complete overthrow of earth’s present rulership, is already commenced.” The Time Is at Hand, page 101 (1908 edition).
1916 “The Bible chronology herein presented shows that the six great 1000 year days beginning with Adam are ended, and that the great 7th Day, the 1000 years of Christ’s Reign, began in 1873.” The Time Is at Hand, page ii, (forward).
1918 “Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old, particularly those named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to the condition of human perfection.” Millions Now Living Will Never Die, page 89.
1922 “The date 1925 is even more distinctly indicated by the Scriptures than 1914.” The Watchtower 9/1/22, page 262.
1923 “Our thought is, that 1925 is definitely settled by the Scriptures. As to Noah, the Christian now has much more upon which to base his faith than Noah had upon which to base his faith in a coming deluge.” The Watchtower, page 106 4/1/23.
1925 “The year 1925 is here. With great expectation Christians have looked forward to this year. Many have confidently expected that all members of the body of Christ will be changed to heavenly glory during this year. This may be accomplished. It may not be. In his own due time God will accomplish his purposes concerning his people. Christians should not be so deeply concerned about what may transpire this year.” The Watchtower, 1/1/25, page. 3.
1925 “It is to be expected that Satan will try to inject into the minds of the consecrated, the thought that 1925 should see an end to the work.” The Watchtower, Sept, 1925 page 262.
1926 “Some anticipated that the work would end in 1925, but the Lord did not state so. The difficulty was that the friends inflated their imaginations beyond reason; and that when their imaginations burst asunder, they were inclined to throw away everything.” The Watchtower, page 232.
1931 “There was a measure of disappointment on the part of Jehovah’s faithful ones on earth concerning the years 1917, 1918, and 1925, which disappointment lasted for a time…and they also learned to quit fixing dates.” Vindication, page 338.
1941 “Receiving the gift, the marching children clasped it to them, not a toy or plaything for idle pleasure, but the Lord’s provided instrument for most effective work in the remaining months before Armageddon.” The Watchtower, 9/15/41, page 288.
1968 “True, there have been those in times past who predicted an ‘end to the world’, even announcing a specific date. Yet nothing happened. The ‘end’ did not come. They were guilty of false prophesying. Why? What was missing?.. Missing from such people were God’s truths and evidence that he was using and guiding them.” Awake, 10/8/68.
1968 “Why are you looking forward to 1975?” The Watchtower, 8/15/68, page 494.
However, Jose Luis de Jesus saved himself from risking total humiliation with erratic second coming predictions and “just appeared” without anyone really knowing. Nevertheless, he did set a day for judgment and It will be Dec. 17th of 2006. As you can see, he literally ran with the marketing slogan “every eye will see” and set out a press release to all of the news outlets for his world judgment.
While the seriousness of this cult cannot be ignored it occurred to me that he acts and talks and even has mannerisms similar to a latino icon that sort of paved away to this whole predicting the future, giving into mystical and esoteric revelations nonsense: None other than Walter Mercado. Just look at these pictures below and read here and you could almost swear that Walter could of acted as a sort of John the Baptist to this guy. Why, with all of the syncretistic tendencies in many of the spanish speaking evangelical countries, it is no wonder how people like Walter and Jose Luis de Jesus can influence so many bible believing Christians.
Remember, and I especially plead to all of my spanish speaking readers: These are some of the aberrations he teaches that are contrary to the Scriptures themselves:
1. Preexistence - according to their understanding of Hebrews 12:9 and Jeremiah 1:9
2. We were evangelized in Heaven - Rev. 13:8
3. We were incarnated while sent to earth
4. Adam was really the serpent of the book of Genesis
5. The apostle Jose Luis de Jesus was sent to earth so that he could believe, learn and explain the mysteries of God
6. This same apostle is the one whom the apostle Paul talked about in 1 Cor. 3:10
7. And of course, every cult’s favorite: NO TRINITY
