For those of you who are super observant, this is a no-brainer.   When you read an article on a website or anything on the internet, do you evaluate what you have read ranging in its accuracy, reliability, and value. Or do you just take whatever you have read as TRUTH as you trust the source and therefore you have no reason to question its source and providence.   

This article will examine a claim by a gentleman named Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear who professes to be ‘The Returned Christ’.  Yes, he claims to be Jesus.

LORD RAYELS WEBSITE has been online since May 2011.  Over the years Lord RayEL has had a Facebook Congregation and from January 2017 transferred to a new european platform namely VK to recruit followers.   Therefore, since 2011 it has recruited Clergy who have come and gone and Lord RayEL’s ‘Imperial Regent’ known as ‘Angelus Domini and Alan Douglas’ will boast that they have thousands of followers, all whom you would think, have visited the website and read the Evidence Section.  

According to the website entry 18th May 2011, RayEL, Ra-el is the incarnated Jesus, the prophesied Messiah and a sign foretelling this was first seen on the Moon.   According to the Holy & Apostolic Order of the Temple this was a divine sign and they used scripture from the Bible to legitimise this claim.  The use of scripture is often cherry picked and distortedly misrepresented to back up ‘prophecies’ and this is a continued theme throughout the Lie that Raymond Howard-Lear is the Returned Christ.

“Matthew 24:30 tells us that right before the appearance of Christ, “…the sign that the Son of Man is coming will appear in the heavens…”. (, 18th May, 2011)

In fact this passage “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” Matthew 24:30 is in fact after the great tribulation where the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light.  This passage can be cross referenced with Daniel 7:13. “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence”.

This above scripture quoted has very little to do with an article the that was written by Manoj R Nair, in Mumbai for the Daily News & Analysis which was PUBLISHED ON SATURDAY JANUARY 22nd 2011.  The article was entitled  ‘Jesus on moon sparks doomsday fears in Mumbai‘.  This was a bizarre report of a sighting that the image of Mother Mary and infant Jesus  was reportedly ‘clearly seen on the moon’ on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st 2011 in Mumbai, Goa and Bihar and that this fuelled fears about an impending apocalypse.  You can read the article relating to this which was attached as ‘evidence‘ on here…

The Holy & Apostolic Order of the Temple used this ‘event‘, applied it to scripture, as proof that Raymond Howard Lear was the Returned Christ.  This is the first inconsistency that YOU WILL FIND when you start investigating the claim that Raymond Howard Lear is the ‘Returned Christ’.  Their website entry dated 18th May 2011 stated…

 “On January 28th 2011, over a billion people in India could see the clear image of Jesus on the moon, and though the story was widely reported throughout the rest of the world”.(, 18th May 2011)

This is totally fabricated.   The event was reported on 20th/21st January NOT 28th January as INDICATED as ‘Evidence‘ that Raymond Lear is the Returned Christ.

WHILST researching this claim, I also looked for other articles regarding this event.

The links are provided :-


News that Matters – Goa Citizens Fear Virgin “Mary” on the moon.

Free Republic – Jesus on Moon Sparks Doomsday fears in Mumbai

Act for Libraries – Image of Jesus appears on Moon

Before its News – Jesus appears on Moon causes Doomsday Panic 

All of the above articles STATE categorically that the event witnessed was seen on 20/21st January 2011 Not 28th.

The  Holy & Apostolic Order of Christ also state on their website …

“We know that if the Messiah appeared in the clouds, it would be impossible for every eye to see Him, because the earth is round, and clouds only cover about half of the planet. On the other hand, there are “clouds” that everyone can see at the same time… The Internet, as well as private intranets, are now called “the clouds” (as in “cloud computing”), and the announcement of Lord Ra-El, on May 21st 2011, less than 4 months after the sign on the moon, has been made in the clouds, so every eye can see him”. (, May, 2011)


A conspiracy theorist could argue that this was a part Stage 2 of Project Bluebeam to implement the new age religion with the antichrist at its head.  That the moon imagery was a three-dimensional optical hologram was used, as part of the gigantic ‘space- show’.   Scientists, however, explained the images as the result of the sun’s light falling on the undulating surface of the moon.

FROM THE VERY OUTSET THE Holy Apostolic Order of the Temple and The Ecumenical Order of Christ have lied about this event.  THEIR WEBSITE HAS INCLUDED THIS FALSE INFORMATION SINCE 2011.

On 14th October 2016, the writer had the opportunity to ask ‘Imperial Regent’ Angelus Domini aka Alan Douglas about this event.   This is a copy of that transcript.

As you can see Alan Douglas gives a date of 22nd January and then states it’s a typo.   As you can see from the evidence that I have presented here, the event did not occur on the 22nd.

What is rather astonishing is that in 6 years nobody has questioned this, obviously that includes Clergy too, whom have access to admin controls on this website.  There is a great deal of high quality information available through the Internet,  Unfortunately, there is also a large amount of misinformation, this claim that Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear being the Returned Christ falls neatly into the latter.  Remember that a Website that makes up facts, quotes people who don’t exist, and cites imaginary sources could look just as professional and slick as a highly reliable and credible site but in actual fact is deceiving you.  This is the first of many lies that have been uncovered surrounding the tale of Raymond Elwood Howard Lear being ‘Jesus’.

This elaborate story was superseded in 2012 with even more of a bizarre story ‘The Jerusalem UFO EVENT’.
