Bishop Eddie Long and New Birth Missionary Baptist church brought in a controversial “Rabbi” to crown Long as King in an elaborate Jewish ceremony using what appeared to be a fake 300-year-old sacred scrolls, that were found discarded outside of a concentration camp in Germany in the early 1940s.
The Rabbi who performed the show of support for Bishop Long, is not even jewish:
Messer is a proponent of so-called Messianic Judaism, a religious movement founded in the 1960s that wraps evangelical Christian theology in Jewish cultural trappings.
Put simply, it’s a Christian movement. Messer is a Christian minister.
And despite Messer’s claim to be acting “on behalf of the Jewish people and the land of Israel,” there’s nothing Jewish about the performance he put on at Long’s church. Neither the ritual nor the language of Messer’s act have any basis in Jewish traditions, while his repeated references to the divinity of Jesus and quotations from the Christian bible make his actual theology clear.
Also, the “priceless” Torah scroll Messer wraps Long in is almost certainly a fake. As you can see at 5:15 in the video, the thing is held together with scotch tape.
Oh, and one more tip for “Rabbi” Messer, if he’s reading this. The name of the Nazi concentration camp where you claim you found that scroll? It’s Auschwitz-Birkenau, not “Auschwitz and Birkendal.”
Eddie Long supporters/followers are doing everything in their power to make him look innocent, holy and consecrated, without an admission of guilt or repentance from the Bishop. What’s so very scary about this performance is, New Birth is lifting up man and not God.
The Bible clearly states: “If I (meaning God) be lifted up from the earth, I’ll draw all men unto me” (John 12:32). It’s important to know the TRUTH people because the enemy is fooling the very elect.
