If you don't know self-styled Texas prophet Joshua Holmes of Joshua Holmes Ministries, you don't know Jesus because he is "Jesus in the flesh," according to some who follow him.
"For all you haters if you don't know Prophet Joshua Holmes you ain't got the Holy Spirit. That's all I gotta say," a young woman says in a viral video posted on Facebook dismissing critics of Holmes. "He is changing lives every day. He is Jesus in the flesh. He is very tangible. He's got the power of God on him."
The flamboyant young minister, whom many critics dismiss as a dangerous departure from orthodox Christianity, has emerged in recent months as an online sensation professing healings and "money miracles."
In a 1-minute video promotion for his ministry that has been viewed more than 3 million times on Facebook, Holmes is recorded making women and men swoon with a wave of his jacket or a mere breath from his mouth.
