Buddha
On Nov. 12 In Nepal, a silent teenage boy exited the jungle and began to receive worship as the reincarnation of "The Buddha." That first caught my attention because when we discuss the Buddha, in the sense of the original Siddhārtha Gautama who became the enlightened Buddha, he had reached enlightenment and therefore even in their own philosophical/religious beliefs, he would not be reincarnated, but he set the example of attaining Nirvana.

So this teenager comes out of the Jungle, doesn't say a word, touches some people on the head, shows no signs of the supernatural, and people believe him to be "god." Here are a couple  reports you can check out:

he only "proof" that the devotees are clinging to is that they "heard" he had been fasting for 6 months, some have said for 3 months. Some reports I read said that the boy had said he had been living off wild herbs. It wasn't proven just assumed. And I thought to myself…"HHmmm, it's amazing with all the historical evidence, Biblical evidence, Extra Biblical evidence, eyewitness accounts, and personal testimonies to the supernatural life, death, and resurrection of Jesus that we have, and still people have a hard time believing." Perhaps if Jesus simply extended his 40 day fast in the desert to 6 months he could have bypassed the whole cross thingy 🙂

So, what are your thoughts on the latest "god" sighting? One thing it tells me is that our world is hungry for a God-invasion, and the really cool thing is that it actually has happened, and Jesus longs to be discovered by those searching for a God-invasion.

  1. My thoughts on the latest “God Sighting” is how unfortunate it is that as Jesus said it would be, “I come in my Father’s name and you do not receive me; if another comes in his own name him you will receive.
    Having myself once been one of those of whom He speaks I am so glad to be reminded that for a few thousand years… maybe even since the very beginning… we have been as Isaiah (speaking for the Lord) was very bold to say: “I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.”
    Though I once was lost but now am found… even so as you say Pastor Monty… we are longing for every manifestation of the invasion of God into this world that has already happened in Christ Jesus and for His will to be done… within and without our individual worlds… as it is in Heaven.
    Still… the birth pangs are frightful and sometimes it seems the persecuted Church around the world is already at Great Tribulation levels and we cry out, “Please come Lord Jesus!”
