ABODE OF DAWN, Russia -- Six miles from the nearest road, in the vast Siberian wilderness, a bearded man in flowing white linen robes sat at his kitchen table and talked about his crucifixion at the hands of Pontius Pilate 2,000 years ago.
In a voice barely louder than the rain falling on the mountaintop home his followers have built for him, Sergei Torop said it was painful to remember the end of his last life, in which he says he walked the Earth as Jesus Christ.
Torop, 46, is a former Siberian traffic cop who is now spiritual leader of at least 5,000 devoted followers. They have abandoned lives as artists, engineers and professionals in other fields to move to this remote corner of Siberia, 2,000 miles from Moscow. In empty woodlands, they are building from scratch an entire new town, where they pass their lives near the man they call Vissarion, "he who gives new life."...

There will come one and do all those things and more.
Then I Daniel looked, and, behold there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen which was upon the waters of the river when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be
for a time, times, and an half
And when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people all these things shall be finished
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect
I wonder if this new "holy" man goes through as many women as Rasputin did? You gentlemen are right about false religions leaders, [URL=http://www.ihcc.org/article_print.php?art_id=58k2U0xrx0Ef50zj5utCtjxmz]]]The Dividing Line Between Truth And Error[/URL].
Great point Allan. What a fake this guy is. Another text would be II Thess. chapter one.
Maybe his followers should ask him to raise a man from the dead with his spoken word, or see if when the local authorities ever come to take him away, they fall backward on the ground by a word from him also.
Oh, I wonder if this imposter can walk through walls, as Christ did after his resurrection.
Mat 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
