"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." -Matthew 7:15
Louis Farrakhan, infamously known as a reverend in the Islamic faith, is now claiming that he is Jesus Christ. While he has given many controversial statements in the past, such as chanting "death to America" and also claiming that God wants a separate state for black Americans, this is perhaps more outrageous than his previous outbursts.
Farrakhan made many shocking claims during NOI's Saviours' Day keynote address in February at the United Center arena in Chicago. He told Rep. Ilhan Omar "you have nothing to apologize for," and he praised her fellow colleague freshman, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
As if that was not bad enough, the reverend then began to satirize the Bible. He said, "God does not love this world. God never sent Jesus to die for this world. Jesus died because he was 2,000 years too soon to bring about the end of the civilization of the Jews. He never was on a cross, there was no Calvary for that Jesus."
If you are not familiar with the original verse John 3:16, it says, "For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son. And whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life."
I guarantee you that God does not find the mockery amusing, and neither do I.
God does not love this world. God never sent Jesus to die for this world. Jesus died because he was 2,000 years too soon to bring about the end of the civilization of the Jews. He never was on no cross. There was no Calvary for that Jesus.

"The real story is what I tried to tell you from the beginning. It didn’t happen back there. It’s happening right while you’re alive looking at it," Farrakhan proceeded with his ramblings, "I represent the Messiah. I represent the Jesus and I am that Jesus. If I am not, take my life."
The bible says that the wages of sin is death, and blasphemy is a sin. Therefore, his request for his life to end if he is wrong will eventually be granted.
The false prophet said, “When he found out that he was 2000 years too soon to end the civilization of the Jews, he decided that he would give his life for the truth he taught, that his name would live, until the one he prefigured came into existence. And that’s why the Quran says Jesus and his mother Mary were [assigned?]. Jesus didn’t die on Cavalry. He died in front of an old Jew’s store that was boarded up and the Roman soldiers came to get him.”
"Some of you do today reject because the white man told you I’m an evil man, I’m a hater, I’m an anti-Semite. I hate Jewish people, I hate gay people. Here I am in front of you. I represent the Jesus that saves. I don’t represent somebody that came to judge you and me for our errors and mistakes…Everywhere I went I found myself rejected." Farrakhan said, "My black people, they accepted me. But now white people are frightening the hell out of black people. College presidents are punished for allowing me or anyone that represents me to come on the college campus because they fear what’s in my mouth from my teacher the Honorable Elijah Muhammad."
I would not want to be standing next to him on judgement day, that's for sure!
