5 False 'Messiahs' and Why Their Claims to Be Christ Contradict the Bible

Prophecy Sign:  False Christs 

This blog entry needs no explanation. Jesus warned of false Christs that would surface in the last days, and the article below reports on False Christs deceiving people all over the world today.

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. Matthew 24:4-5 NIV

5 False 'Messiahs' and Why Their Claims to Be Christ Contradict the Bible
Australian Alan John Miller, Miami-based José Luis de Jesús Miranda, Brazilian-born Inri Cristo, Russia's Sergey Anatolyevitch Torop and Wayne Bent, who is currently imprisoned in New Mexico – these are men from different parts of the world all claiming, like dozens long gone before them, to be Jesus Christ, God's Messiah and even in one case, both Christ and the end-times figure, the Antichrist. Perry Noble, pastor of the nondenominational NewSpring Church in Anderson, S.C., told The Christian Post last week, when asked for his reaction to Miller's claim, that part of him could hardly believe it. "But then part of me goes to Matthew 24 where Jesus said other people are going to come in my name claiming I am he," he added. "Then he basically says don't fall for it. Jesus says when he comes back, we'll know it."
Despite such warnings, dozens of figures over time claiming to be Christ have attracted a following, with detrimental consequences, such as with Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple and David Koresh and the Branch Davidians. Below is a list of five men, still living, who have managed to attract followers with their claims to be the reincarnation or second coming of Jesus Christ.
