Russian authorities arrest cult leader who claims to be the reincarnation of Christ

There are already many who have said to be the same reincarnation of Jesus Christ and they have attracted a large number of people, being incredibly deceived.

But this should not surprise us, since the same Bible tells us that by this time there would be “false christs”:

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Matthew 24:5 (KJV)

This time it is about a Russian known as “Vissarion the Master”, or “Jesus of Siberia”. He is the leader of a cult and claims to be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ.

Vissarion the Teacher

His real name is Torop and he is 59 years old. He says that after losing his job as a traffic policeman in 1990, he had a “mystical revelation” and was reborn as “Vissarion, the reincarnated Jesus Christ”.

Like everyone who has come out saying he is the Christ, he founded a church called “The Church of the Last Testament”.

He affirms that God has sent him to earth to teach humanity about the evils, war and the havoc that we are causing in the environment.

The followers of Torop call themselves “Vissarionites” and are approximately 4,000 people and live in southern Siberia. But there is a more devoted group, about 300, who live on the top of a remote hill that they call the Abode of Dawn.

He was arrested in one of his communes on accusations of using the money of his followers and psychological violence to cause bodily and psychological harm to some people.
