There we found out that Florida Currier was carrying a story indicating that “Rabbi” Ralph Messer was supposedly going to crown White queen “during a Super Bowl Sunday service” at her New Destiny Christian Center.
I hadn’t intended to spend a whole lot of time with this lunacy in the Lord’s Name; but I covered the story for a couple of very good reasons. First of all because of the Elephant Room 2.
You’ll see clear evidence in There’s More To The Resignation Of James MacDonald From Gospel Coalition that a major reason why MacDonald resigned from TGC was to embrace Word Faith mogul T.D. Jakes as his Christian brother.
The overwhelmingly positive response to ER2 now virtually makes Jakes a mainstream evangelical. As such, you need to understand, Jakes’ WF associations can now legitimately be introduced into evidence as we begin to examine his Christian character and teachings.
You might remember that his friend and fellow Word Faith Prosperity Preacher Eddie Long Was Crowned King by the quasi-Messianic Jewish-Christian interfaith modalist Messer. That’s why I would notice when Jakes’ disciple pastrix Paula White was possibly to follow in Long’s foolish footsteps.
Having watched these WF teachers for years, and knowing their propensity to copy each other’s latest shtick, 1) we wouldn’t be surpirsed if White had such a ceremony and 2) it does also reflect on T.D. Jakes as well because—beyond question—he’s firmly in that WF camp.
Even Christian Post ended up covering this story as it developed. In Paula White to Be Crowned Queen? NDCC Pastor Denies Link to Eddie Long’s ‘Rabbi’ CP reporter Nicola Menzie tells us:
Paula White, senior pastor and “Apostolic Overseer” of late Zachery Tims’ New Destiny Christian Center as well as Without Walls International Church, has denied any connection to a rabbi seen in a widely-circulated video “crowning” Eddie Long king in an elaborate Torah ceremony at his Georgia megachurch.

Apprising Ministries told you late yesterday in Looks Like No Queen Coronation For Paula White that White issued the statement below:
Despite Paula White’s attorney denies that an Eddie Long-style ‘coronation’ will take place FC still continued to insist the coronation of White as a Word Faith queen by Messer was going to happen. Until finally we saw them concede that it was not actually going to take place.
Oddly enough, yesterday we also saw King Eddie Long Apologizes For Ceremony with Ralph Messer as well. Seems when the light is shown on these kinds of ridiculous and blasphemous teachings the WF spiritual snake oil salesmen suddenly scurry away trying to hide them.
In closing this, for now, let’s take a few minutes to look a bit more closely at pastrix Paula White’s statement:
In the past, Pastor Paula has interviewed Rabbi Messer on her television show.
This is certainly true as you see by Messer’s You Tube Torah TV channel:
Here’s where White’s statement concerning Ralph Messer becomes quite questionable:
She does not endorse him in any way, and she will not be participating in any events with him. Any suggestion to the contrary is totally false. (Online source)
She may not be participating in any events with Messer but she has most certainly endorsed him in the past. Consider the fawning over Messer by pastrix White while she introduced him during one of his trips onto her program a couple of years ago. White calls him:
one of the leading experts—internationally known foremost, greatest teachers God has raised up for such a time as this—of the Torah, Rabbi Ralph Messer.
In the real world this is an endorsement. Watch for yourself:
Just moments ago as of this writing, right at Paula White’s own website, we find Feast of Trumpets with White and Messer. You’ll see White say Messer is “no stranger” and refer to him as her “dear friend” with “an apostolic and evangelistic anointing” while she introduces him:
Beyond any reasonable doubt, that was an endorsement of “internationally acclaimed Bible teacher, speaker, and minister-rabbi” Ralph Messer by T.D. Jakes’ spiritual daughter pastrix Paula White. So, the evidence does reveal that White’s being a bit disingenuous in her statement above.
Finally, were about to witness something else, which also proves to be quite interesting. Watch now as Messer will perform his scroll-wrap ceremony with his dear friend Paula White; this was on her own TV program three years before Messer’s coronation of former King, Eddie Long.
While she isn’t called Queen, White obviously has absolutely no problem with Messer below:
