The Kings Land in Queensland

Couple who claim to be Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene set up base in Queensland

A COUPLE who claim they are Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene have set up base in Queensland and are drawing in disciples from across the country.

The pair, whose real names are Alan John Miller and Mary Suzanne Luck, operate from a rural property near the little town of Kingaroy – about 220kms northwest of Brisbane – where they claim to have been joined by 30 to 40 followers,  The Sunday Mail reported.

“My name is Jesus and I’m serious,” Miller says in a video recording from a workshop.

Cult watchers and the Anglican and Catholic churches are concerned the pair, who ask followers to donate to sustain them, could draw in the vulnerable.

Miller bought a 40-acre (16ha) property in 2007 and his Divine Truth followers have since been buying nearby blocks to be close to the charismatic leader, 47, and Luck, 32.

Anglican Archbishop Phillip Aspinall and the Catholic church urged people to be cautious when exploring new movements.

“This is especially true for people who are seeking meaning in their lives and as a result may be vulnerable,” Aspinall said…

A COUPLE who claim they are Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene have set up base in Queensland’s Bible Belt and are drawing in disciples from across the country.

The pair, real names Alan John Miller and Mary Suzanne Luck, operate from rural Wilkesdale, near Kingaroy, where they claim to have been joined by 30-40 followers.

“My name is Jesus and I’m serious,” Mr Miller says in a video recording from a workshop. Cult watchers and the Anglican and Catholic churches are concerned the pair, who ask followers to donate to sustain them, could draw in the vulnerable.

Mr Miller bought a 16ha property at Wilkesdale in 2007 and his Divine Truth followers have since been buying nearby blocks to be close to the charismatic leader, 47, and Ms Luck, 32.

Locals and real estate agents confirmed the group had sparked an unlikely property boom, with estimates they have bought up to 30 blocks and with new properties in high demand.

Followers joined forces in 2009 to buy a $400,000, 240ha property where they hold weekly meetings and plan to build a centre for international visitors.

In an apparent coincidence, land clearing has created a giant cross on neighbouring properties. Locals insisted it was not carved deliberately.

Police are said to have been called to investigate screams, only to discover members taking part in a healing exercise where they shout to help process “past soul damage”.

Concerned relatives and friends have contacted the Cult Awareness and Information Centre to warn of Divine Truth followers selling homes to move to Wilkesdale.

The centre’s spokeswoman, Helen Pomery, said: “The moment someone becomes God or God’s voice on Earth it gives them another level of authority to enforce submission to them.”

Anglican Archbishop Phillip Aspinall and the Catholic church urged people to be cautious when exploring new movements.

“This is especially true for people who are seeking meaning in their lives and as a result may be vulnerable,” Dr Aspinall said.

Mr Miller was born in Loxton, South Australia, and has two children from a previous marriage, which he says ended after he “began to remember details” of his past life.

Tailoring his appearance to look like Jesus, he yesterday held a workshop in Albury, NSW, where he stood by his claims.

In one recording he says: “There’s probably a million people who say they’re Jesus and most of them are in asylums. But one of us has to be.

“How do I know I am? Because I remember everything about my life.”

  1. I saw that video.

    When this “jesus” said, “the greatest thing you will discover is that I am just like you..” and womens voices can be heard cooing, “Yessss!” i thought: it wouldnt surprise me if this guy gets a platform to speak in “churches”. His message is not much different than the new-age gobbledygook that’s spruiked all over these days.

    You know, “the greatest discovery you can make is that YOU are divine! you are a god!”

    Then, bring the atonement in, and say that by the cross everyone has been given divinity (Copeland, Hinn, Meyer etc…)

  2. It’s probably a given that he will be living pretty well on offerings, and will be sleeping with more than one silly woman.

    And in a few years, dumb people will complain that they were deceived and manipulated by him. And more than one woman will say that they were sexually abused by him.

    Just use your brains ladies ..and gentlemen.

  4. Good point. I probably wouldn’t make very convincing Jesus.

    I still think after watching this guy that he just decided to have a fun life. His mates down at the pub probably suggested it, and then after laughing for a while thought “why not?”.

  5. And Mary Magdalene sounds totally crazy but he can probably live with that as she’ll probably also be open to any new teachings that Jesus comes up with. So this AJ is living the dream of most guys. Money for nothing and the chicks are free. Rock stars and cult leaders!

  6. Yes … in fact David Koresh claimed to be Jesus in the flesh. Only he was a lusty Jesus who “knew” all the ladies in his cult.

  7. If he was Jesus, where are scars and the holes in his hands… feet… side…

  8. No specks, he’s reincarnated see. However, he now gets to be a Jesus that actually has carnal knowledge of his subjects. (presumably only the female ones … who might get sent out to do some flirty fishing)

    Just remember: Don’t drink the Kool Aid.

  9. When Jesus does return all the following will take place:

    Rev Ch1-Verse 7: “Behold He is coming with clouds,and every eye will see Him,even they who pierced Him.And all the tribes of Earth will mourn because of Him.Even so, Amen”

    Matthew Ch 24 Verse 27: (Jesus speaking) For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west,so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

    Acts Ch 1 Verse 11: who also said,”Men of Galilee,why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven,will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
    This has not happened yet so anyone claiming to be Jesus is an imposter

  10. Prevention of cult development is the best measure. Someone has to stop him now!!!! theres children out there remember and take a look at a lesson of history with cults and sexual abuse!!!
