Beware of Share International
Benjamine Creme has been 'channeling' Maitreya for decades... always claiming that Maitreya was on the verge of showing himself. That'll be an amazing trick since there is no such person or entity as this Maitreya that Creme's cult has been pushing.

What is the horse for?
My brother was over the other day and he mentioned something about 'Pegasus' and 122,00???
It made no sense to me.
Maitreya shouldn't be feared...
All we need to know and understand is ...“the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine,
but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers,
having itching ears;
and they shall turn away their ears from the truth,
and shall turn themselves unto fables” (II Tim. 4: 3-4)....
And as The Lord says... " And "if God be for us,
who can be against us?"

Thanks for posting the photo. For some reason I expected to instantly recongize the face of this man, but I do not.
I will try to read the referred links, and bring myself up to speed.
Thanks again, spirit.

These people are a bunch of nincompoops and cranks. Nothing to see here, folks.
The actual figure of "Maitreya" has a rather more distinguished and time-honored pedegree within the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, where he has been heralded as the "Buddha of the Future" for almost 2,000 years. What exactly this means is very open to debate, however. Down through history, Maitreya -ism (so to sepak) in various forms has fueled a number of cults, rebellions, messianic claims, and many of the more disturning and radical sides of Buddhism. See for example the following:

There seems to be different stories about Maitreya. There's two or three Maitreya groups on PalTalk I've talked to a few times. One night some guy that was supposed to be Maitreya reborn again talked in the room. Supposedly he lives in Texas. He seemed knowledgeable, nice and pretty wise, but in my opinion wasn't any Jesus or other "figure from the past". I just couldn't buy into it, at least at that time. For me it's one of those wait and see things. I believe you'll know in your soul when the truth is before you. So as of now I have doubts about this, but my ears are open and will check out the July 22nd thing.
