The church leader who claimed to be both Jesus AND the Antichrist (huh?) and who advocated the use of 666 is dead. Or not? Can’t tell at this point.
The rumor that José Luis de Jesús Miranda died has spread like wildfire on the Internet and yet there is no official version by the pseudo-Christian organization Growing in Grace who died has denied his self proclaimed “Man Christ Jesus”.
The cyber radio programming Growing in Grace was dedicated Friday to clarify that they are waiting for the transformation of his “Father God”, as published by the newspaper El Nuevo Dia of Puerto Rico.
Gonzalo Gomez, radio host of The Better Tomorrow, NetGracia Station, spent several minutes in the program to clarify that their spiritual leader “not see death,” and that “his years shall not fail”.
I’m at a disadvantage that I can’t read Spanish. But his Wikipedia page shows death in 2013 but no details.
This site says that he was ill and died in Texas, as told by reliable sources.
Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda died last week, just on Thursday, August 8 at 3 pm at Methodist Hospital in Sugar Land, Texas, where his wife was with him at all times, television media reported the world. Representatives of the Growing in Grace church have not yet confirmed or denied the information, but reliable sources indicate that Miranda died from complications with liver cirrhosis who had been suffering to many years.Miranda’s last appearance was on his birthday in a video, which appeared gaunt and haggard where asked his followers to be prepared for the “great transformation”, an event which he would become an immortal and his followers, assuring that could walk through walls.
Even his ex-wife confirms it in this YouTube video. But the church won’t. Guess they weren’t prepared for this contingency or something weird is going on behind the scenes.
We reported on his end times prophecy:

and when it didn’t happen
Oh, dear. Got that ’666′ tattoo for nothing..
The community has been labeled a “cult”.
UPDATE (15-Sept-2013) I guess he’s not dead. Is this supposed to be a resurrection? Or was he really sick and now is better? Can’t tell. This is weird but funny in a way. Since it’s mostly in Spanish, it is hard to track. Additional info is welcome.
