WOLVES: Church Performs ‘Resurrection’ Ceremony After Starving a Child to Death

Police say the pastors at a Balch Springs church starved a 2-year-old boy they said was possessed by a demon, and later held a ceremony to resurrect the boy. A shocking ‘resurrection ceremony’ for a two-year-old dead boy at a Texas church has been caught on camera.

Aracely Meza, 49, was arrested Monday and charged with injury to a child causing serious bodily injury by omission. Lt. Mark Maret, a spokesman for Balch Springs police, said police expect to make more arrests as the investigation continues.

The church, named Iglesia Internacional Jesus es el Rey, is operated out of a house in the 12300 block of Duke Drive.

Meza and her husband are pastors who presided over the church services held at the residence and also lives there along with other families including that of the two-year-old boy, according to WFAA.

The home was not registered or zoned to operate as a church, code inspectors for the city said, however its website states the national headquarters are at the home’s address.

Court records say Meza, her husband and several others lived in the house. Meza acted as the church’s vice president and claimed to be a prophet who could communicate directly with God, according to court records.

Police went to a home on March 26 in Balch Springs to do a welfare check and were told by residents that a two-year-old child had died and a ‘rising ceremony’ was performed, according to CBS.

In a report earlier this month, neighbors told WFAA that cars would fill the street for services, presided by the Mezas, but that no one knew what was happening inside of the home operating also as Iglesia Internacional Jesus es el Rey Church.

‘When it was church hours they would set it up as a church, then when it was over, back to a home,’ neighbor Bryan Cruz told WFAA who grew up with the children in the home. 

A second neighbor, Jean Turnipseed, said that she had heard that church services were taking place at the home on Saturdays and Sunday nights, where people were being charged at the door.

Several people told police the boy was given water four to five times a day, but no food for 25 days before he died on March 22. A church member tried to feed the boy, but the pastors scolded her and forbade her from doing so, according to court records.

The witness, who said she knew Benjamin’s mother since she was pregnant with him, said the child was possessed by demons, according to pastors.  

Members of the Igelisa Internacional Jesus es el Rey Church re-enact a scene from the crucifixion which on Facebook was titled as ‘Drama Crucifixion & Resurrección Pascua 2014’.

She also said he went 25 days without food before he died.

Unconfirmed reports have suggested that the two-year-old boy, whose name is unknown and who neighbors had not seen, may have died either of starvation or of a fall from a chair.

A neighbor said earlier this month that five children under the age of ten, both boys and girls, were also living at the home and had been taken away by Child Protective Services.

Joy Donaldson said that she once complained to the woman who lived at the home about two of the boys, who had been bothering her dogs.

The woman, whose name she did not know, told her that the children did not know any better ‘because they had been taken off the streets of Mexico’. 

The morning of March 22, police said, Meza and three other people — listed as suspects in court records — held a ceremony to revive the boy.

Aracely Meza

In a video capturing the attempted resurrection ceremony, the boy identified by a witness as Benjamin, is being held in the arms of Texas pastor’s wife Aracely Meza as others, including a man who appears to be her husband Pastor Daniel Meza, are gathered around.  The clip shows Meza reciting prayers while holding the boy, whom she refers to as Benjamin, in her arms.

She also invokes Jesus to give life into the child. 

“In the name of Jesus, I’m utilizing this oil to try to get him back to life,” she explains in Spanish.

The chilling details of a ‘resurrection’ ceremony held for a ‘possessed’ two-year-old boy in a Texas residence have emerged following the arrest of a pastor who is accused of helping starve the boy to rid him of a demon (above Aracely Meza during the alleged resurrection holding the two-year-old boy).

In the footage, Meza apparently uses oils to try and bring him back to life while also praying and speaking in tongues during the ‘rising ceremony’ lasting for hours.

After applying oil to his head, she says it’s time for him to wake up, “right now.”

Meza later told police she believed that was the day God was going to wake up the boy, court records say.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves – Matthew 7:15 (KJV).

On March 23, the next morning after the ceremony, Meza, the boy’s parents and other church members took the boy to Mexico for burial.

Police started looking into the boy’s death on March 26, after receiving a tip about his death.

The boy was a U.S. citizen, said Pedro Gonzalez, a spokesman for Balch Springs police.

Police believe the boy’s parents and his body are in Mexico. They are working with Mexican authorities to contact the parents, Gonzalez said.

In an earlier report, Lt Mark Maret told CBS: ‘We don’t know if this was to try and resurrect the spirit of the child and we don’t know if this was to try and resurrect the child themselves or what exactly that service or ceremony encompasses.’

Meza, who is reportedly not the child’s mother, and has been charged with injury to a child by omission, according to NBCDFW.

She is currently being held on a $100,000 bond, and more information will be available on Tuesday.

Aracely Meza (above), has been arrested in the case involving an attempt to resurrect a two-year-old boy at a home operating also as a church.

Emergency services do not appear to have called until police received an anonymous tip four days later. Police said there is no record of the child’s death being reported.

“We are concerned with finding out what happened, and why the boy passed away,” Gonzalez said. “We still need to conduct an autopsy.”

The child’s parents took the body to Mexico the following day. Two phone numbers for the single-story home were disconnected.

An investigation is underway involving both state and federal authorities.
