Ten Men who have claimed to be Jesus

jesus

As Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives and His disciples asked for the signs of His second coming, He gave several pointers and prophecies that will forecast the religious climate of the earth at the time of His return. One of them is:

For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many … and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.

 23 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.25 See, I have told you ahead of time.

26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. (Matthew 24:5, 11, 23-26)

Indeed, all through history, many people – whether overtly or covertly – have come in the name of God claiming to be the promised Messiah or the returned Jesus Christ. Many of them have established movements, gained followers and even worked signs and wonders to gain credibility.

The list of such self-acclaimed messiahs is almost endless and more will still come. But in this piece, I will give only recent examples, men who have made such claims in the last decade or so.

  1. Ariffin Mohammed

Born to a Muslim family in 1941, Ariffin alleged that in 1959 during a debilitating illness, he was visited by an angel and also in the 1970s when his spiritual career began.

Popularly called “Ayah Pin” (Ayah, being a common honorific meaning “father”), Ariffin was the founder of Kerajaan Langit (Sky Kingdom) in Malaysia. His movement had a commune based in Besut, Terengganu which was demolished by the Malaysian government in 2005.

Ariffin not only claimed to be Jesus, he also claimed to be a reincarnation of Buddha, Shiva, and Muhammad. He was said to have the powers of invisibility and telepathic killing.

His followers fondly believe that one day, Ayah Pin will return as the Imam Mahdi. Devotees of the Sky Kingdom cult considered Ariffin to have direct contact with the heavens, and that he is in fact, the king of the sky – the supreme object of devotion for all religions.

After surviving a wave of attacks, arrests and fatwa from the Muslim government against his movement, Ariffin fled, and finally fled to Thailand as an exile in 2009. By then, he had about 10,000 followers. In 2016, he died in the home of his third wife (he had 4 wives).

  1. Wayne Curtis Bent

Bent Waye (a.k.a Michael Travesser) who was born in 1941, was formerly a Seventh Day Adventist pastor but left the religious group with others of like mind in 1987. He claims that during an experience in his living room in June 2000, God told him, “You are the Messiah.”

Bent has since stated, “I am the embodiment of God. I am divinity and humanity combined.” With a group of about 80 adherents who migrated to Sandpoint, Idaho, Bent founded the Lord our Righteousness Church in Union County, New Mexico.

His cult became a target of media investigation in 2004 which Bent further heightened when he announced October 31, 2007 as the beginning of the Day of Judgement.

Bent allegedly told his congregation that “God told him that he was supposed to sleep with seven virgins,” including a member’s own daughters who were 14 and 15 at the time.

Bent freely admits having sexual intercourse multiple times with his son’s wife. Both he and his son state that “God forced Michael [Bent] to commit this act of consummation.”

Bent was eventually arrested by the New Mexico State Police on three counts of sexual contacts with a minor and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. After his verdict, Bent was quoted as saying, “Just as with Jesus, they’ve convicted an innocent man… They had to lie to get rid of Jesus, and they will have to do the same to me.”

Now a convicted sex offender, Bent was paroled from prison in 2016 after spending about 8 years behind bars. This self-proclaimed Messiah has since published The Little Book, based on Revelation chapter 10. Believe me; someone is already buying his lies as you read this.

  1. Sergey Torop

Known by his followers as Vissarion (“He who gives new life”), Sergey founded and leads a group called Church of the Last Testament with its head church in Siberia. He has around 4,000 followers living in his sacred Mountain settlement and around 10,000 followers worldwide. He also has branches in Bulgaria and Germany.

Sergey claims to be a reincarnation of Jesus which he said was revealed to him when he was 29 (he’s now 57). He claims to be “reborn” as a returned Christ in 1990, thus making him the Word of God.

His religious system combines elements of Russian Orthodox Church with Buddhism, syncretism and earth-centred beliefs, hence his followers are vegetarians.

He has two wives, the second of which had been living with him since she was 7. Sergey also considers Mary the mother of Jesus to be his biological mother and has even modeled his look after the purported picture of Jesus Christ.

The YouTube documentaries of this “Siberian Jesus” show that he predicted the coming of a great flood and spiritual protection for all his followers, many of who abandon their homes to build settlements near the holy mountain where the great Messiah lives. They all use a modified calendar set by his arrival on earth.

  1. David Shayler

Shayler, a former British M15 whistle blower, became a part of the 9/11 Truth Movement which maintains as its primary tenet the belief that the attack of September 11, 2001 was largely fraudulent.

In 2007, Shayler made waves in a British magazine, Daily Mail, when he brazenly declared: “I am the messiah and hold the secret of eternal life” and that he is a reincarnation of various historical figures and has pledged his commitment to destroy the “Zionist empire.”

He claimed that God came to him one day and declared him as Jesus. “Ten years ago when God came to me I realized that I was Jesus Christ. Most of the people think you are insane when you say that, but I would say the opposite is in the Bible,” he said in an interview.

What makes Shayler’s claim to divinity rather remarkable was his admission that he lives part of his life as a woman who squats in a 17th century farmhouse in Surrey; in plain terms, he’s a transvestite.

  1. Inri Cristo

Brazilian educator and former waiter, Alvaro Theiss, was born in 1948 and has admitted to hearing a “powerful voice” in his head since childhood. Obedient to this voice, Theiss left home at 13 and eventually became an atheist, severing all ties with his Roman Catholic background until he allegedly received a revelation of his new identity.

At the age of 21, he began his public life as a self-professed prophet and astrologer, introducing himself as “Iuri de Nostradamus.” In 1979, while observing a fast in Chile, he claims a raspy voice said, “I am your Father” revealing to him that he was the same Christ crucified 2,000 years ago.

The voice also told him that the second letter of his name (“u” in “Iuri”) would now be turned upside down making his name Inri. But wasn’t it easy to deduce that this man simply took the initials INRI inscribed on the cross of Jesus Christ?

Since then, Inri now dresses in white tunic and sandals announcing that his mission will usher in an era of the New Age. The 69 year old “celibate” guru with his dozen disciples lives in a small compound behind an electrified fence. His devoted female disciples, who live with him, push him around on a fringed red satin platform on wheels.

Inri has toured about 27 countries to spread his message but he has been banned from three countries: the U.S., Venezuela and UK, though he has been welcomed by France. He has also been arrested by police more than 40 times.

  1. The “Jesus” of Kitwe

In 2013 a former taxi driver, Bupete Chibwe Chishimba, a resident of Mindolo Township in the Zambian copper mining city of Kitwe began to make his own proclamations:

I am Jesus Christ from the heavens who has come to save you from this world and I would put an end to the Political Government of this world and I will start ruling no one can stop me because I posses the divine power,” he said.

Chishimba claimed he fell off from heaven in 1999 with the sole purpose of initiating judgment for mankind and end political rule. His preaching has been known to attract many street traders as well as irate youths who assault him for his gross blasphemies.

Chishimba has however denounced church leaders and urged them to stop deceiving people by saying Jesus is coming when he was already there, because he came from the heavenly Kingdom. These days the 43-year-old goes by the names of Parent Rock of the World, Mr. Faithful and Mr. Word of God.

He drives a taxi inscribed with the words “Lord of Lords” and walks around the local marketplace dressed in a robe, spreading the message of the returned Christ.

  1. José Luis de Jesus Miranda

Born in Puerto Rico, José became addicted to heroin at 14 and asserted that he was delivered by the power of God and later joined a Baptist church.

In 1973, José claimed he had a vision on which he was visited by a pair of angels as he later told ABC News: “The same spirit that was in Jesus of Nazareth, and the same spirit is in me. He came to me. He [integrated] with my person.”

From there, he began to preach his own peculiar doctrines and later assembled a number of followers forming the Creciendo en Gracia (Growing in Grace) church in Miami, Florida, in 1988. A decade later, José declared himself to be the reincarnation of Apostle Paul.

Perhaps not been satisfied with his own flights of fancies, in 2005, he announced himself to be the Man Jesus Christ, who has returned for the second time. “Anyone who doesn’t believe in me, is miserable,” he declared, to his audience’s applause.

In 2006, he openly claimed to be the Antichrist which he defined as one “no longer following Jesus of Nazareth as he lived in the days of his flesh.” Followers showed their support by getting 666 tattoos on their bodies; some of them displayed these tattoos on YouTube.

José, known to be a charismatic preacher, taught his followers that 666 is not a sign of the devil, but of wisdom, implying “put your faith in the Jesus after the cross … and that’s me.” In 2008 he was estimated to have two million followers in 30 countries, no thanks to his motivational-style preaching on radio and TV.

Miranda finally died from liver cirrhosis, a condition that is at odds with his expected immortality. After his death, his followers crowned him as Melchizedek – the king of justice and of peace.  His cult later divided into 4 factions with different doctrinal positions and agenda.

Men may rise to make bogus claims about themselves, but death usually comes around and deals them its blow and all their boasts end right there.

  1. Omowole Isaac Omogoroye

Mr. Omogoroye, a Nigerian, and a one-time Student Union President at the University of Lagos during an interview with Sahara TV made this rather astonishing disclosure in 2017:

Today, I’m appearing to the whole world as the one and only Son of God expected back to life and I come in the new name of God as documented in the only living book, the Bible … What I’m trying to say is that I’m the awaited Jesus Christ. My mission here is to let the world know that Jesus Christ is back.

No man born of a woman will come from the sky down. It was only a parable in the bible. I’m here to decode that parable in Revelations. I am the Jesus Christ the Bible is talking about.”

In the video which lasted 15 minutes and 32 seconds, Omogoroye further disclosed that he has been appearing in different countries of the world as the awaited Son of God expected to redeem the world, and has also been given the divine mandate to occupy Aso Rock, the seat of the nation’s power come 2019.

He added that as soon as he becomes the President of Nigeria, the government will change its name to the New Jerusalem of the Bible. We will be waiting, with baited breath.

  1. Apollo Quiboloy

Said to be born on a “prayer mountain” in Davao City, Philippines in 1950, Apollo Carreón Quiboloy was a member of the United Pentecostal Church till he founded the Kingdom of Jesus Christ church – the Name Above Every Name in 1985.

He also claims to be the Appointed Son of God which stirred much criticism. His followers refer to their community as a ‘Kingdom nation’ and it has been estimated that there are about 4 million “kingdom citizens” in the Philippines and about 2 million followers abroad.

Quiboloy oversees the operation of several radio stations, newspapers and a sprawling 8-hectare compound in Davao City where piped central music is played all over the place 24 hours a day. Who says the brainwashed too don’t need some music to luxuriate in the message?

They also hold Bible study sessions and prayers and their cult leader has been known to wield much political and religious power over many in that country.

In 2018, Quiboloy was investigated for human trafficking in Hawaii after the authorities found $350,000 in undeclared cash and rifle parts inside the aircraft belonging to the sect’s leader. He was later freed to fly again, no thanks to his wealth and influence.

  1. Moses Hlongwane

The South African “Lord of lords”, Moses Hlongwane, says that God identified him as the Messiah during a dream in 1992. At the time Moses was working as a jewelry salesman. Since then, he’s preached in Eshowe, Johannesburg, and other cities in the region.

He claims to be a reincarnation of Jesus and is known to wear a baseball cap embellished with yellow satin. He surrounds himself with dozens of disciples, many of whom have abandoned their families and whose welfare payments fund his Jesus compound in KwaZulu-Natal town.

Hlongwane said he, like Jesus, spent years in the wilderness and has been resurrected as the Son of God. “I was in this room from 1992 and have spent 22 years in a fight with the devil and have overcome him,” said Hlongwane.

As I speak to you I will never see death and I am now getting ready for the opening of the graves and healing of blind and lame,” he said during an interview with eNCA.

Notice a consistent cultic pattern in all these figures:

  1. A claim of supernatural revelation or visitation
  2. A codification of unorthodox beliefs or heretical doctrines
  3. Claims of self-divinity
  4. Authoritarian control over followers
  5. Isolating followers from the rest of the “ungodly” society.
  6. A searing of conscience and justification of crime under the pretext of “We are God’s special people.”

Were these men insane loons infected with a messianic complex? Perhaps. But one thing is certain, they are all under the control of the spirit of Antichrist and their multiplicity is proof of the signs of the time we are in.

Weighing the Message: The Grail and its Castle

The raison d’être of all occult systems is frequent contact and communion with the spirit realm and the evil spirits therein. Of course, many occult and New Age groups will deny that the spirits they are interacting with are demon spirits, but when one integrates Biblical understanding, weighs their spiritual experiences and evaluates their lives and beliefs, the true source of their power becomes clear.

While some people feel that the Grail movement is questionable, they still cling to the Grail message as divine. But even if we detach the Grail message from the movement disseminating it, it’s impossible for us to separate it from its source: the spirit realm (or “Grail castle”) where Oskar Bernhardt received his message and the spirit(s) that inspired him.

If a revelation is from the realm of Satan and his fallen angels, then it’s satanic. It matters not whether that revelation comes under the rubric of a visible organization or it’s being followed personally. In the Bible, the lines are clearly drawn and there’s no neutral place. Any revelation or supernatural experience that does not come from God certainly comes from His enemy, Satan.

In this article, all quotes (unless otherwise indicated) are taken from Vol. 2, chapter 34 of In the Light of Truth by Ab-dru-shin.

Manifold are the interpretations of the legends which exist about the Holy Grail. The most serious scholars and investigators have occupied themselves with this mystery. Much of their work has high moral value, but it all contains one great fault, i.e. the fact that they have built only from the earth upwards, while the essential thing, the ray of light from above, which alone could bring life and enlightenment, is missing.”

Here, Abdrushin is building on the medieval occult legend of the Holy Grail. A popular version of the legend says the Holy Grail was the cup Jesus used at the Last Supper and at the crucifixion which received the blood flowing from His side. It was allegedly brought to Britain by Joseph of Arimathea, where it lay hidden for centuries.

The search for the vessel became the principal quest of the knights of King Arthur. The Grail was believed to be kept in a mysterious castle surrounded by a wasteland and guarded by a custodian called the Fisher King, who suffered from a wound that refused to be healed.

King Fisher’s recovery and the renewal of the blighted lands depended on the successful completing of the quest i.e. by making contact with the Grail. A “worthy” knight of the round table (Sir Parsifal) delivers the Grail to the king, and fertility was restored to the land.

Abdrushin claims to receive his version of the legend through a ray of enlightenment from above. To him, the Holy Grail, is not symbolic of an earthly vessel or edifice but is a real place where all creation supposedly came from. Note that one of the features of the occult is, they lure in non-initiates with esotericism or secret knowledge.

The prospect of having access to a “mysterious” spiritual knowledge – which no one else has ever known until a German 20th century mystic arrived on the scene – holds great fascination for the unsaved. Once people forsake the Bible – God’s Word of truth – there’s no limit to the height and depth of their delusion.

The existing interpretations are not without great moral value, but they cannot claim to be an explanation of the legends, much less an approach to the truth about the Holy Grail.”

Since the Grail myth forms the fountainhead of Abdrushin’s messages, we need to take a closer look at it. The legend of the Holy Grail first appears in a written text in Chretien de Troyes’s Old French verse romance, the Conte de Graal (‘Story of the Grail’) or Perceval (c. 1180).

During the next 50 years, several prose and verses re-tell the story with varying details but two major versions stood out between 13th-15th centuries. The legend of the “holy grail” actually came from Celtic pagan myths in which magical vessels or “the horn of plenty” were said to satisfy the tastes and needs of all who ate and drank from them giving them health, unquenchable food and victory in battle.

Of course, the legend of King Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot is steeped in Paganism and Witchcraft but this has been thinly disguised in modern versions.  In the older pagan versions, the Grail is the cauldron of the goddess or a metaphor for sex with the goddess. King Fisher is also called “the Divine King” which constitutes a core myth of paganism and witchcraft. The Rite of the Divine King teaches that the king (and/or high priest) is magically linked to the land over which he ruled.

If the king sickens, the land suffers; if he prospers, the land prospers. Thus, if the land is in bad shape, royal blood must be shed to heal the land. This was the theory underlying the dying and rising fertility gods of pre-Christian Europe.

That Abdrushin would utilize the Grail occult myth to extend the frontiers of his own teachings shows that he was not inspired by the Spirit of God and the realm he speaks of is not heaven. God is not the inspirer of pagan lies and fairy tales.

Even in a logical sense, you can’t face a wrong direction and arrive at the right destination. If you start out with a pagan delusion you will definitely end up with more pagan delusions, not godly truth. Abdrushin’s version of the Grail legend is merely one more interpretation to the others previously existing.

“No human spirit, even in its final greatest perfection and immortality, will ever be able to face the Holy Grail Itself! It is for this reason that no detailed tidings about it can ever extend from there earthward into the World of Matter, unless a Messenger is sent from there.”

This whole ‘Holy Grail’ concept, though a romanticization of ancient cultures combined with a passionate interest in fantasy and science fiction, is simply a mystical code term Abdrushin used for introducing his followers to the demonic spirit realm.

The God of the Bible is not sought through any Grail whether literal or symbolic. He has revealed Himself through Jesus Christ for every man to know and fellowship with Him. “For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Tim. 2:5).

“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways,  but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe (Heb. 1:1-2).

As far as God’s Kingdom is concerned, there is no messenger being sent to proclaim a set of teaching from some “mysterious” pagan Grail. The only saving message is the Gospel – the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

But the Bible speaks about another kingdom which consists of a host of fallen angels who rebelled against God and were cast out of heaven; they are ruled by their master, Satan (Ezekiel 28:11–17; Isaiah 14:12–15; Revelation 12:7–9).

Satan’s kingdom, though wielding much influence in the physical world, is primarily located in the spirit realm. Since humans are made in God’s image and possess a spirit/soul, they have the ability to contact the spirit realm.

Those who have been saved by Christ have access to God through Jesus Christ, whereas the unsaved – through various occult and Christless groups – have access to Satan’s realm through the agency of demon spirits. Of course, these spirits often disguise themselves as angels of light and manipulate the spirit realm to suit the belief system of the initiate; after all, theirs is a kingdom of deception (2 Cor. 11:14).

Parsifal is a great promise … Parsifal is identical with the Son of Man, Whose coming the Son of God Himself promised. As a Divine Messenger, with His spiritual eyes blindfolded, He will have to go through the most bitter hardships on earth, as man among men. After a certain time, freed from this blindfold, He must recognize His origin and therewith Himself, as well as clearly see His mission.”

This could be referring to a coming “world teacher” or the Antichrist (more on this later), but in another lecture, Oskar said: “Parsifal was linked with the gross matter in Abdrushin. Therefore Abdrushin was Parsifal and also Imanuel, through the continued direct connections of the radiations which creation cost great preparation and effort.” (Lecture no. 57: Let there be light!).

Oskar claims to be a luminous servant of God and equates himself with Parsifal, the knight who delivered the grail to the “divine king”. He, like most cult leaders all through history, elevated himself to a divine plane and claimed to be predicted by Jesus Christ, but the message he brought and the legendary Parsifal have nothing to do with the Jesus of the Bible.

This also applies the human spirit. It originates from the Sphere of Spiritual Substantiality, to which it may return as a conscious spirit in substantiate form if, after its course through the World of Matter, it has achieved its highest state of perfection and attained living purity.

Grail adherents believe that creation emerged from some “divine radiations” in the spiritual sphere which were given consciousness, form and personality and made to become beings and entities. This is a substantial occult lie.

God spoke other creations into existence “out of nothing” (ex-nihilo) except man whom He formed and gave life to (Gen. 2:7). Before creation, man didn’t pre-exist whether in spirit form or otherwise and there is no “progression” of souls through reincarnation. We didn’t come from “the sphere of spiritual substantiality” and there are only two eternal destinations beyond this earth: Heaven and Hell (Matt. 25:34, 41).

In a bid to seduce his followers into utilizing occult powers, Abdrushin denied the existence of heaven, hell, as well as good and evil powers, claiming that there is only one power. This is found in Vol. 2, ch. 1 titled “Responsibility”:

When schools and churches speak of Heaven and hell, of God and the devil, this is right. It is wrong, however, to explain it as good and evil powers. That must at once plunge every serious seeker into error and doubt…”

Here, he is espousing a pagan philosophy called Monism (“All is one,” therefore there can be no evil). But the Bible makes a clear distinction between God and Satan; heaven and hell; life and death (Deut. 30:19-20; Job 1:8; Lk. 10:17-19 etc.). It is the height of irrationality to conflate two existing parallels into one.

While it’s true that all powers belong to God, the power wielded by the devil and his minions are used for evil and it will ultimately be stripped from them by God and they – along with all who follow them and their teachings – will be eternally consigned to the lake of fire (Rev. 20:10).  No Gnostic philosophy or “luminous ascent” a person claims to have on earth will alter this eternal reality.

“In the best of cases, its path may lead it to the forecourt of the Grail Castle which stands at the highest point in Spiritual Substantiality and forms the gateway to the steps of the throne, on which the source of all being, God the Father in His Divine Unsubstantiality, dons at times the cloak of Divine Substantiality i.e. takes on form.”

Let’s break this down a little: there’s a Grail castle in the spirit realm which houses this “holy grail,” and like the Eckankar cult also teaches, there are different spheres or levels in this realm, of which the Grail castle stands at its highest point.

Though Oskar throws in “God the Father” as a smokescreen, it’s clear that he’s using the legend of the Grail to introduce the seeker to a high-ranking entity and its location.

In vol. 3 ch. 32 titled “The Primordial Queen,” Oskar wrote that there are archangels and the eternal ones called ‘the elders’ before the steps of the throne of ‘God’ where the Grail castle is located. Then he said:

Elizabeth is the very foremost Divine-Substantiate embodiment of Pure Divine Love, which as the only one therein took on the most ideal womanly conformation … And there the Primordial Queen of womanhood has Her being and has a throne in the Grail Castle of the Divine part! … Beside Her are the Archangels, and further downwards the eternal Elders who are called the Old Ones…”

In plain terms, the so-called holy grail symbolizes the Queen of heaven (Oskar calls her “Elizabeth”) and she’s a demonic entity in Satan’s kingdom! Even Dan Brown for all his fictitious clothing admitted: “The Holy Grail represents the sacred feminine and the goddess…” (The Da Vinci Code, UK: Bantam Books, 2003, p. 238)

Notably, in witchcraft and Satanism, they use the term “great old ones” to refer to demon spirits or “demigods.” Some call them “Cthulhu mythos.”

“In this chalice, the contents swirl and surge increasingly, like red blood, without ever overflowing. Enveloped as it is in the most Luminous Light, only the purest of all spirits in the realm of Spiritual Substantiality are granted permission to look into this Light. These are the guardians of the Holy Grail!”

Now that we know the true identity of Ab-dru-shin’s “holy grail,” we can understand why he employed these occult philosophical terms. This is an unholy grail and the spirits in that realm are anything but pure.

In witchcraft, the chalice or goblet is symbolic of the element of water and is the symbol of the Goddess, particularly her womb which connotes fertility (Frederic Lamond, Fifty Years of Wicca, Green Magic, 2005, pp. 125-126).

From time to time on the Day of the Holy Dove, the Dove appears above the Chalice as a renewed token of the unalterable Love of the Father. It is the hour of communion which brings about the renewal of power… It is the moment in which the Love of the Creator flows forth radiantly in the Temple of the Holy Grail, bringing new life and a new urge to create, which pulsate downwards and is disseminated throughout the entire Universe.

There are three major occult/pagan concepts reiterated here:

a) The dove that “appears above the chalice” is not referring to the Holy Spirit of the Bible. In pagan myths, doves were sacred to Astarte and Isis who were worshipped as fertility goddesses. They were also represented having a dove above their heads. Many pagans see Astarte and Isis as names for the queen of heaven.

b) “The renewal of power” brought about through that communion is of fertility – “bringing new life and a new urge to create” on Grail messengers. More like bodily ‘love.’

Like I said at the beginning of this article, the purpose of all occult rituals is to contact the spirit realm and have the evil spirits there to be present with the participants. And as a former high-ranking ex-Satanist said, there’s a strong kind of magnetic force that attaches the spirit world to the physical world.

c) One of the Grail festivals celebrated annually on May 30 is called “the Festival of the Holy Dove.” They claim it’s linked with the event of Pentecost, but this is untrue. It’s the time their dove spirit gives them sexual energy and this rite matches a fertility festival observed by many Wiccans and Neopagans on May 1 called Beltane.

In conclusion, the Grail message is just that, messages from the Grail, a code-word for a demonic entity, and the Grail castle, which is the spirit world. Such a message may make reference to God, Jesus or even the Holy Spirit, but they are not the ones revealed in the Bible.

When a person embraces Abdrushin’s messages to the point of becoming sealed into the Grail circle and participates in their worship and festivals, he/she has opened his/her soul to the control of the “old ones” and they will ultimately lead him/her to eternal destruction. The Jesus of the Bible is the only way out of that deadly trap!
