Louis Farrakhan: I Am Jesus, The Messiah




Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan made some truly bizarre messianic comments in a recently unearthed video from earlier this year in which the Nation of Islam leader also gave his audience a taste of his usual anti-Semitism. Farrakhan said he is Jesus, which is not only a messianic complex but an odd thing for a Muslim to say. Other religions don’t necessarily doubt that a Christ-like figure existed, but they don’t tend to think that he was the actual lord, savior, and messiah,. Fox News reports.

The video was from a February speech he made at a Nation of Islam Saviour’s Day event, where he was the keynote speaker. Beyond his messianic comments that he used to further peddle anti-Semitism, he hit on a laundry list of recent controversies by making controversial comments himself.

He talked about the anti-Semitic comments that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has routinely made and said she had “nothing to apologize for.” When he started talking about the Bible, he didn’t do so in a way to try and bring together faiths and take some of the best teachings of other religions and apply it to his worldview. He cynically shoehorned an infamous passage, John 3:16, into his speech so that he could use it as a means to appear larger than life and deride Jews.
“God does not love this world,” Farrakhan began, as he used the Bible passage to attack Jews. “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,” Farrakhan said.

He even took the cross as his own.

“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,” the leader said before he really let his true colors show. “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.”

He continued “Everywhere I went I found myself rejected. 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.”

Farrakhan has done some good work in the past with helping to advance the civil rights of people of color, but he took this credit to a whole new level by continuing his messianic complex. He started talking about how Jesus is the messiah and he represents him, keeping in mind too that the idea of end times and the Rapture would involve Jews dying in a Holy War so that Christians could go to Heaven.

“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 said. “I represent the messiah. I represent the Jesus and I am that Jesus. If I am not, take my life.”
