To continue on with the theme of the white Jesus anti-Christ started in Living in the Last, first of all, we must begin with the idea of how the false messiah will look.
It is written in the Bible: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2Thessalonians 2: 3, 4).
If the God of the Hebrews is a black God who humiliates all other gods, then, black people worshipping a white god and, saying, ‘These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt,’ would be tantamount to us saying a black God isn’t good enough and that only a white god could possibly be greatest of all the gods.
This white god and white messiah are very real beings that have usurped the throne of God, in the temple of God, in the heaven of the hearts of his black people.
To give this idea a bit more substance, it is written in the scriptures: “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; inasmuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24: 23, 24).
This scripture contains a tripartite interpretation: Firstly, this scripture was spoken by the Messiah in the days of the early Messianic movement.
Sure enough, around the time of the Jewish Revolt – which took place within a few decades of this prophecy – there were many men claiming to be the Messiah; but no miracles, signs or wonders.
Secondly, the idea of a person saying ‘I am Jesus,’ or ‘I am Christ.’ With our modern mentalities such a claim would be held as delusional, of the similitude to someone who claims they are the reincarnation of Napoleon.
Worse still, if they work miracles and claim to be Christ, we would brush them aside and say their power had gone to their head.
Their delusion definitely would not be able gain the world’s obedience, as it says, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him” (Revelations 13: 8).
There is a third possibility though: this prophecy may be talking about a false version of the real Messiah. To understand how this applies we will have to go into Revelation again.
The Bible – which I believe was written as a warning by black people for black people – speaks about a beast that receives power from a dragon, and his seat: “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two mouths.
“And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelations 13: 5-8).
And again, it says of the false prophet: “And [he] deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live” (Revelations 13: 14).
How this interpretation works is that the false Christ or anti-Christ is not a flesh and blood human being; he is a figment of someone’s imagination – a perfect, so-called perfect, nice guy with no passion or aggression – far from the real Messiah, who, with a carpenter’s body and skin of bronze, overturned the moneychangers’ tables with passion.
This is the most likely version of the anti-Christ, not a man who is delusional or someone with a messiah complex because all the world will not worship him, and as we have said repeatedly, “all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him” (Revelations 13: 8).
Nor should we say it was simply fulfilled in the first century during the Jewish Revolt as those false messiahs did not have the power to work miracles, and as it says somewhere else, “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.
“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish: because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (2Thessalonians 2: 9, 10).
Now we look at the white Jesus and see how all these ideas come alive. All that dwell upon the earth (or most anyway) worship him.
And his prophets have the power to deceive them that dwell upon the earth by means of those miracles which they have the power to do.
To be sure, I am not the first one to call the white god a usurper or the white Jesus an anti-Christ; however, what I am saying is that for us black people to worship the white god, a white messiah and a white trinity is not only blasphemous, it is idolatrous.
Is it not written, “If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
“And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
“Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deuteronomy 13: 1-3).
By turning to white versions of God and the Messiah we incur the wrath of the real, true and living God, cause it is tantamount to worshipping the dragon and the beast.
For we black people to finally come to a place where we are free from the snare of white supremacy we must honour the black God and black Messiah who are the essence of black masculinity, the manifestation of black power.
We must also appreciate that such an outlook will itself incur wrath, the wrath of the world. By claiming the Messiah is black some will despise you, others will call you racist, and some of us may even go through great tribulation for holding to this truth.
But what does the scriptures say, “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan” (Revelations 2: 9).
We need to remember that we are the chosen and that the white Jesus is the anti-Christ, this will keep us strong during whatever we have to endure; and this is how we distinguish the real from the false.
