Who May Present Himself As the Christ

Expected In His Second Coming By All Christians?


[To translate to any major language Click Here]




PURPOSE
 
The purpose of this document is to introduce the Faithful to a most likely candidate (from among the current suspects)  for the position of The False Christ (1). We do not wish to label what we are about to express as a Prophecy; time and upcoming events will label it for what it is in the near future.


INTRODUCTION


It is no secret that a number of faiths/religions are expecting the coming of a savior - an individual who will set the world on the right track by "saving ourselves from ourselves".

miguel de Portugal resolutely assures the world of this: the only way the Kingdom of God (in which Justice, thus, Peace will prevail) will come is in the manner that we have announced in the numerous documents that we have published on this topic and which is consistent will all Biblical Prophecies (2).

Any attempt to realize this objective worldwide (global Peace through the establishment of global Justice) by anyone else besides Jesus Christ, will be the manifestation of a False Christ - and that is a Prophecy indeed.



BACKGROUND

For your better understanding of the messianic expectations worldwide, the following is a table, compiled by a close cooperator at our request, summarizing the nature of the savior/messiah expected by different faiths/religions of the world.


Different religions and messiah awaited


Religion
Awaited messiah
Brief explanation
Christianity Jesus (Second Coming) According to the Canonical gospels, He will come "in the clouds, with great power and glory" and "the dead who are in Christ, shall rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, shall be taken up together with them in the clouds to meet Christ, into the air, and so shall we be always with the Lord." (R1)
Judaism the Messiah Traditional and current Orthodox thought has usually held that the Messiah will be the anointed one (messiah), descended from his father through the Davidic line of King David via Solomon. This Messiah will gather the Jews back into the Land of Israel, usher in an era of peace, and build the Third Temple.  (R2)
Sunni and Shia Islam al-Mahdi In Shia and Sunni eschatology, the Mahdi is the prophesied redeemer of Islam who will stay on Earth for seven, nine or nineteen years (according to various interpretations) before the Day of Judgment/Resurrection and, alongside Jesus, will rid the world of wrongdoing, injustice and tyranny. (R3)
Sufi Islam al-Khidr Although al-Khidr was a prophet, the sky and sea obey his will and he is able to appear anywhere and everywhere, at all times, for all time. He is the hidden initiator of those who walk the mystical path. According to some commentators the person who will challenge the Antichrist and humiliate him will be al-Khidr. (R4)
Hinduism Kalki In Hinduism, Kalki is the tenth and final Maha Avatar (great incarnation) of Vishnu who will come to end the present age of darkness and destruction (known as Kali Yuga). (R5)
Mainstream Buddhism Maitreya Maitreya is a bodhisattva (someone on the "path to liberation") who in the Buddhist tradition is to appear on Earth, achieve complete enlightenment, and teach the pure dharma (path of awakening). According to scriptures, Maitreya will be a successor of the historic Sakyamuni Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. (R6)
Mahayana Buddhism Amida / Amitabha Through his efforts and the power of his vows, Amitabha created the "Pure Land" and made it possible for all who call upon him to be reborn into this land, there to undergo instruction by him and ultimately become enlightened in their turn. From there, these same enlightened ones return to our world to help yet more people. (R7)
Zoroastrianism Saoshyant At the end of time, a savior-figure (a Saoshyant) will bring about a final renovation of the world, in which the dead will be revived. There will be a great battle between the forces of good and those of evil in which the good will triumph. On earth, the Saoshyant will bring about a resurrection of the dead in the bodies they had before they died. This is followed by a last judgment through ordeal. (R8)

DETAILS

There is a Maitreya who actually claims to be the fulfillment of the Messiah for all faiths/religions, but this is not the Maitreya listed above under "Mainstream Buddhism". The Maitreya being heralded by Benjamin Creme of Share International, according their literature and advertising, not only is the incarnation of all other expected saviors but he will even replace the Maitreya from Mainstream Buddhism.

According to Mr. Creme's presentations in London in 2010 (4) plus all propaganda since then, the "all encompassing" Maitreya is already amongst us, known by millions, but not as Maitreya the savior. According to Mr. Creme, when the day of manifestation comes it will be done via television and internet and not like we were informed almost 2,000 years ago minutes after Jesus' Glorious Ascension:

And when he (Jesus) had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments. Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven. [Acts 1: 9-11]

On August 3rd, 2009, we wrote: "This Maitreya is not the False Christ we have announced" (5) and that was the case then. Since that time, by making the necessary adjustments for a more credible falsification the "Messiah", the new Maitreya is beginning to "look, feel and taste" like the False Christ that we have announced.

What is the difference? As we understood it (or it was promoted by them) back in 2009, the Maitreya in question was the one listed above under "Mainstream Buddhism" and not the new version which fits quite well with the False Christ that we have described.

Where does the Vatican comes in in such scenario? Only God knows, but, that the Vatican will be completely involved in the manifestation of the False Christ is a confirmed prophecy.


CONCLUSION

No new conclusion nor suggestions. There is nothing to add to what we have said in What can we do? Part I and Part II (6) - except to Just do it!

Let us not forget our other brothers and sisters, those of other faiths who may have the messianic expectations that we describe in the list above. The Christian world has been notified (through our pages for the last thirteen years) about what was to come. The others, unless helped by our prayers and by appropriate warnings, may fall into the trap of the False Christ  (1).


EPILOGUE

If there was a time when the following teaching of Jesus Christ can - and must - be taken literally, it is now.

[24] No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. [25] Therefore I say to you, be not solicitous for your life, what you shall eat, nor for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than the meat: and the body more than the raiment?

[26] Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they? [27] And which of you by taking thought, can add to his stature by one cubit? [28] And for raiment why are you solicitous? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they labour not, neither do they spin. [29] But I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these. [30] And if the grass of the field, which is today, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, God doth so clothe: how much more you, O ye of little faith?

[31] Be not solicitous therefore, saying, What shall we eat: or what shall we drink, or wherewith shall we be clothed? [32] For after all these things do the heathens seek. For your Father knoweth that you have need of all these things. [33] Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you. [34] Be not therefore solicitous for tomorrow; for the morrow will be solicitous for itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof.  [Matthew 6]


This teaching by Christ can – and must – be taken literally now because we are about to face the deceit of all deceits, the falsification of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The only way we can be delivered from this imminent, deadly, final spiritual snare is to establish and maintain a solid relationship with our Heavenly Father, His Holy Spirit and His Living Word, Jesus Christ. When we have this relationship with God, we will not be deceived – even if our physical senses say otherwise. Establishing this relationship with God should be our primary objective, and our only concern, above all!
