Skip to comments.‘The time is finished’: Religious sect erects billboards in Toronto ahead of the ‘transformation’

ST. CATHARINES, ONT. Doris Rosado watches her teenage daughters, Ninette and Kiara Mongrut, get the numbers 666 tattooed on their wrists, beaming with pride. The number typically conjures up biblical symbolism tied to the Antichrist, but this St. Catharines, Ont., family belongs to a obscure Christian sect for which 666 is a positive symbol of their groups messianic leader. They wanted to do it, Ms. Rosado, 45, said at the St. Catharines tattoo parlour where her daughters were inked. But now its more important because were counting down Im so proud.
For this family, and other members of Growing in Grace International, these tattoos are a way of demonstrating their faith as true believers of Jose de Luis de Jesus who they fervently believe is the second coming of Jesus Christ before a day of reckoning they believe will wipe out most of humanity.
The group, which they say has branches in five Canadian cities and members in more than 130 countries, believes that on June 30 (or July 1 across the international dateline), their Texas-based leader and his followers will be transformed, said Alex Poessy, the groups bishop in Canada. To spread the word, Growing in Grace put up billboards in Toronto this week featuring Mr. de Jesus. That day, the body of Jose de Luis de Jesus, who is a human like you and me, his flesh is going to be immortal
. Hes going to be living forever. And that will happen to him, but also his followers. But, said Mr. Poessy: All those that are not believers are going to be destroyed.

From the article : The worlds not going to end. What is going to end is the system
. All the governments and the currencies will fall. The new government of the 666 will take over, she said. The groups billboards feature a picture of Mr. de Jesus, with such messages as 666, number of wisdom or Countdown to the transformation June 30, 2012.
One more post because this sounds so familiar...
Que twilight zone music
Their teachings include, there is no Satan, the Leader is “the Man Christ Jesus”, there is no sin and so on...
“’666’ is a positive symbol”???????????????
How very convenient.
That was my thought as well.
Well, it does provide opportunities to witness.
Yikes! And double yikes. What a double open delusion.
Canadian member Ana Guevara, 20, brushes the cult claims off.
All our lives have been enriched with this . If we were a cult, then I guess were a pretty awesome cult. Because its teaching you how to live happy. How to live in a good mood, says Ms. Guevara, whose family is also part of Growing in Grace.
It gets stranger and stranger...........................
If they are a cult that gives you lots of sex, I’m in.
Oh, my goodness.
Lord have mercy on all the children!
If they are a cult that gives you lots of sex, Im in.

For that you will have to join the Fundamentalist Mormons (like Warren Jeffs group). Sorry.

You might be surprised at how many members of different cults say almost the exact same thing...a common mantra is “Well if it makes me feel good, or be a better person, then it doesn’t matter what we believe or if we are a cult”.
Mt 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here [is] Christ, or there; believe [it] not.
Mt 24:24 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.
Mt 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
Mt 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.
Mt 24:27 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.
But how many are open about the mark of the beast.
It also can be a desensitizing of all things satan.
I bet ya they are big pot heads too. Notice how pot is becoming on the board on certain states for review. People who smoke alot are so out of it. I met a certain group of old friends last year. Well they are smoking weed on the side of the party totally out of it. The coming back talking wacky crap.
The drug culture will usher in all this crap eventually. We need prayers and witnessing.
Satan is pointing his finger up in the air. He is seeing which way the wind blows for his kind. He checks how we tolerate this so he can really put his toes in the water to take the big dive.
I would not surprise me if a seal was open from the Book of Revelation.
Satan will always have counterfeits....but by doing it in this manner, (via cultish teachings), counterfeits nullify the whole and real “truth” by twisting and perverting it, therefore people will not hear the real truth when it is told. Many who have left cults,(finally), have great difficulty going to a solid church because cults use Christian terminology, so when they hear that vocabulary, though it's presented rightly, it causes confusion... so many simply withdraw from religion period.
The whole cult idea (satanic counterfeits) is ultimately to destroy an individuals desire for the things of God. ..and that is accomplished thru these cults using His terminology in a twisted manner.....so when they hear it otherwise it can often seem equally distorted and offensive...though it's not.
For some a catch 22.
