Aaron “stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.” (Numbers 16:48)
America has not yet really paid God’s price for the murder of millions of Black people, whom she enslaved and brutalized for centuries. Nor has she really paid His price for murdering Black leaders. But she will pay the greatest price when she executes her plan against the life of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and then those with him.
If each Black person in America understood the knowledge of their own identity, from the all-comprehensive viewpoint of the Divine Supreme Being, they would find it easy to understand Minister Farrakhan’s identity and position during this most critical time–and their own value.
The key to this understanding is the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad of God, self and our open enemy. This vital information runs throughout the Bible, in which the majority of Black people believe. Its truths are verified by the Holy Qur’an.
A major part of his teachings is that the Bible contains these truths, in symbolic as well as in plain statements. But we could not understand even the plain statements since we did not know of whom such statements were directed. We don’t see ourselves in the scriptures even though we are there from cover to cover.
The tenth chapter of “This Is The One” (published in 1996) is about Minister Farrakhan. It’s intended to explain and defend Minister Farrakhan. Pages 239-241 contain this about Minister Farrakhan’s extraordinary value:
“What I’m driving at is: the Honorable Elijah Muhammad knew that the God Who taught him had determined how best to remove all poison and rust from all of us; regardless to our condition and number, which may well be over 40 million.
“In The Fall Of America he wrote, on page 102, with reference to us (Black folks): ‘Perhaps all of you will be saved; for you are bound to submit when you see what is coming.’
“On page 143, he also wrote: ‘Do not think that the 144,000 prophesied of, are the only ones who will be saved.’
“Now, I have said and written this before, and I’ll touch it again here, and I don’t tire of it, for I am among the beneficiaries of what I’m about to sum up.
“I’ve written in The Final Call newspaper Vol. 11, No. 20, August 24, 1992 that: ‘God told the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in 1964, that He was going to bring down the fullness of His wrath within 18-24 months of that time. He had no choice but to publish what he was told. However, he begged Allah, in prayer, for more time. Allah gave it to him. And out of that we have the Honorable Louis Farrakhan today! If that had not happened, where would we be?’
“I am among the grateful for the great sacrifices the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Louis Farrakhan have made for the future of our poor people.
“In Surah 7 verse 142, we read of Allah appointing for Moses 30 nights and that he completed them with 10. In brief: the 30 nights were about from 1935 to 1965 and the 10 nights were about from 1965 to 1975.
“Did not you read of those times when the people provoked God to anger, due to their rebellious attitude and deeds, and Moses and Aaron fell on their faces and prayed to the God for mercy and for time to work with the people?
“Both the modern Moses and the modern Aaron have likewise prayed to Allah for time to get to our people, out of hearts filled with intense compassionate love. They warned of a day–a specific day–that is all but upon us, when God will punish those who reject the warnings these two have and are giving.
“Have you ever noticed how often we read in scriptures that God gave Moses and Aaron this and that; and God told Moses and Aaron this and that; that God had told Moses and Aaron to do this and that? Even the rebellion, mentioned in the Book of Numbers Chapter 16, was against Moses and Aaron. And we read that Allah Himself specifically appointed Aaron to aid Moses in a special way (Holy 25:35). What are we to learn from this?
“In The Final Call newspaper, dated March 5, 1988, I wrote the following, which fills in some of the above concerning the preparation of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, by his teacher: ‘On this third occasion, when the Honorable Elijah Muhammad spoke to his Minister of his value, he also told his Minister that, “As Allah made me to take His place among the people, I am making you to take my place.” Remember what Moses told Aaron in the Holy Qur’an 7:142: “And We appointed for Moses thirty nights, and completed them with ten, so the appointed time of his Lord was complete forty nights. And Moses said to his brother Aaron: Take my place among my people, and act well and follow not the way of the mischief-makers.” ‘
“The thirty nights and the ten months refer to the forty year period–from 1935 to 1975–of the first phase of the mis-sion of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. The ten months refers to the ten year period of time, 1965 to 1975, during which, in response to a special prayer, God granted the Honorable Elijah Muhammad more time; a term, in which Minister Farrakhan’s preparation could continue so that he could do as he has done from 1977 onward.
“On the bottom of page 297 of Message To The Blackman by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, we read: ‘In the coming years every one of you who is now a dis-believer in Allah and the great brotherhood of Islam will be suffering the punishments that have been mentioned in the above chapters and verses.’ The original article read: ‘In the next 18 to 24 months every one of you… .’
“This relates directly to the value of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan and of our people–in the eyes of Allah.
“These words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad originally appeared in Muhammad Speaks newspaper in the summer of 1964. He published that which God or-dered him to publish. Let us remember that was during the time of a great outbreak of hypocrisy within the Nation of Islam.
“He only gave the warning which he was ordered by God to give. What was and is not widely known, however, is that one day, following the issue of Muhammad Speaks con-taining such dreadful news of the coming chastisement of God; the Honorable Elijah Muhammad mentioned in a lecture in Chicago that he had begged Almighty God for more time to work with us; to save us all. This prayer was made after he was ordered to publish what he did. And his prayer was accepted.”
I heard that lecture. In it, he stated that he was granted extra time by Allah to try and save us. He also said he was standing in the way of our being chastised by Allah. He later put Minister Farrakhan in the place where he stood–between the chastisement and us. This is a critical truth that means our lives and the lives of our loved ones.
Minister Farrakhan is God’s mercy to us and to America.
More next issue, Allah willing.
