Well, after years hiding behind promises and press releases, it seems that this false prophet might be finally stepping forward. Posted below is a press release Share International issued yesterday stating that Maitreya has made his first public appearance.
-------------Maitreya Steps Forward
LONDON, January 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Share International Foundation announces that Maitreya, the World Teacher, has given His first interview on American television. Millions have heard Him speak both on TV and the internet. His open mission has begun.
He was introduced not as Maitreya, the World Teacher and Head of our Spiritual Hierarchy, but simply as a man, one of us. In this way He "ensures that men follow and support Him for the truth and sanity of His ideas rather than for His status."
He spoke earnestly of the need for peace, achievable only through the creation of justice and the sharing of the world's resources.
This is the first of many such interviews which will be given in the USA, Japan, Europe and elsewhere, bringing His message of hope to the world.
For over 30 years artist, author, and lecturer Benjamin Creme has been preparing the way for the biggest event in history - the emergence of Maitreya the World Teacher and His group, the Masters of Wisdom. Millions of people around the world have heard his information and wait expectantly for this momentous event.

In light of such developments, let's all keep Jesus' words in mind here:
"...Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (Matt 24:4-5)
"And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." (Matt 24:11)
"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." (Matt 24:24)
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:28)
